Oscars: Shaping up for Terrence Malick?

That’s how I feel about this Oscar race.  I feel I see something that no one else does.  I’ve been doing this a long time but I’ve never had the overwhelming feeling like I just figured out the Oscar race in August.  I was sitting down to do my Oscar predictions like any other month.  Making some switches, moving some contenders, and cleaning out films and performances that we thought would be coming out but still have no release date.
I stared at a few names and had an epiphany.  It was as if I was Russell Crowe inA Beautiful Mind, and the code all came off the page and circled my head in an Oscar sensation.  On August 25, 2012 I’ve chosen to make my first ballsy prediction of the year.  Terrence Malick and his film, To the Wonder wins Best Director and Best Picture at the Oscars 2013.  How did I come to this conclusion you ask?  I will discuss this in more detail on this week’s Power Hour which premieres on Monday but I’ll attempt to give you the best break down possible in the following thoughts beginning with the Director field:

Terence Malick’s “To the Wonder” revealed!

By Joey Magidson
HollywoodNews.com: With the big announcement yesterday of the titles that will be debuting/playing at the Toronto Film Festival, the first Plot Synopsis for Terrence Malick’s new film “To the Wonder” was revealed.
The film stars Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Olga Kurylenko, and Javier Bardem, and seems to be Malick’s most overt relationship drama in some time, though there are still rumblings that it’s also his most experimental one as well (which would actually be saying something). After the jump you can see the short summary of the picture, and it sets things up very nicely. I may not have been big on ‘The Tree of Life’ last year, but I recognize his talent, and this one has my attention in a big way. You can find the synopsis below.

“The Vow” and “Safe House” fend off “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: It was yet another ‘photo-finish’ at the box office over this President’s Day weekend, but as always, it’s the hard numbers rather than the arbitrary rankings that matter. But since we need to decide which movies to discuss first, in order we shall go! For the moment, it appears that Safe House will top the charts in its second weekend after barely missing the top slot last weekend. It grossed $23.9 million over the Fri-Sun weekend and $28 million over the holiday. Safe House will have grossed $82 million by Monday, a rather huge total for Mr. Washington. In just eleven days, Safe House is Washington’s 7th-biggest grosser, out-grossing such films as Training Day ($76 million), Man On Fire ($77 million), and Unstoppable ($81 million). Barring a complete collapse, Safe House should become Denzel Washington’s fifth $100 million grosser over the next weekend, with an outside shot of eclipsing the $130 million gross of American Gangster, which is currently his top grosser. While we can debate how much credit co-star Ryan Reynolds gets for this one (he certainly didn’t hurt…), Safe House is already his fourth-biggest grosser and will likely out-gross Green Lantern’s $116 million total in a few weeks. I’m frankly shocked at the strong legs for this one, as it’s certainly one of Washington’s worst genre entries in a long career with a number of solid adult-skewing action pictures (it looks like it was shot through a puke filter and edited in a blender, plus the script is so generic it could have been written in a Mad Libs book). Still, star-power is a rare thing these days, and Denzel Washington clearly has it.
So does Channing Tatum and, in the right project, Rachel McAdams, so it will be interesting to see how The Vow’s popularity affect next month’s 21 Jump Street. The Vow is estimated to gross around $23.6 million for the Fri-Sun period and $27.4 million for the Fri-Sun period. No matter who ends up on top, both films exhibited strong holds. With $89 million by Monday, The Vow is already Screen Gems’s highest grossing film ever, topping the $80 million total of Dear John. The 43% drop for The Vow is slightly smaller than the 47% drop for Dear John, but the new film was bolstered by a [...]

“The Vow” Ranks Number One Opening Weekend

HollywoodNews.com: ROMANCE, the celebrated women’s fragrance by RALPH LAUREN, was the exclusive sponsor of THE VOW movie premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood on February 6, 2012. THE VOW ranked #1 opening weekend, February 10-12, and is poised to join RALPH LAUREN ROMANCE as a must-have for Valentine’s Day.
The premiere of THE VOW was attended by the film’s starring cast, Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum, Scott Speedman and Jessica McNamee, as well as REVENGE stars Christa B. Allen and Ashley Madekwe, I AM NUMBER FOUR’s Teresa Palmer, and Madeline Carroll, Rebecca Black, Bella Thorne and Jana Kramer. Also attending was the couple whose true story inspired the film, Kim and Krickitt Carpenter.
RALPH LAUREN ROMANCE was center stage at the events. The fragrance name adorned the pink step & repeat lining the custom pink carpet along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where Channing made his entrance alongside Rachel wearing a Ralph Lauren Purple Label charcoal three-piece suit and furnishings.
Following the premiere, the star-studded audience celebrated the occasion at THE VOW official premiere after party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel where the theme was an elegant wedding reception. A custom wedding cake by Hollywood’s favorite dessert maker Sweet Lady Jane revealed the RALPH LAUREN ROMANCE and THE VOW logos among its three tiers, and attendees posed for pictures in a photo booth where wedding-themed images could be instantaneously uploaded to email and Facebook.
Pink roses and ROMANCE fragrances adorned every section of the venue, and the RALPH LAUREN ROMANCE commercial ad, shot by renowned photographer and filmmaker Bruce Weber, and depicting the real-life love story of Argentinean polo player, Nacho Figueras, and his wife, Delfina Blaquier, played for all who attended.
THE VOW and RALPH LAUREN ROMANCE share the theme of enduring love. Paige and Leo (Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum) are a happy newlywed couple whose lives are changed by a car accident that puts Paige in a coma. Waking up with severe memory loss, Paige has no memory of Leo, a confusing relationship with her parents (Sam Neill and Jessica Lange), and an ex-fiance (Scott Speedman) she may still have feelings for. Despite these complications, Leo endeavors to win her heart again and rebuild their marriage.
“The moving premise of THE VOW reflects the RALPH LAUREN ROMANCE story about true love conquering all,” says Guillaume de Lesquen, President of Ralph Lauren Fragrances Worldwide, “and there couldn’t be two better actors than [...]

HollywoodNews.com: Our selected movie star to be our “2011 Hollywood Hot Male Movie Star of the Year” is Ryan Gosling.

Photos by PRPhotos
Ryan Thomas Gosling (born November 12, 1980) is a Canadian actor and musician. He first came to public attention as a child star on the Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club (1993–95) and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark? (1995), Goosebumps (1996), Breaker High (1997–98) and Young Hercules (1998–99). His first serious role was as a Jewish neo-Nazi in The Believer (2001), and he then built a reputation for playing misfits in independent films such as Murder by Numbers (2002), The Slaughter Rule (2002), The United States of Leland (2003) and Stay (2005).
Gosling came to the attention of a wider audience in 2004 with a leading role in the romantic drama The Notebook, for which he won four Teen Choice Awards and an MTV Movie Award. His performance as a drug-addicted teacher in Half Nelson (2006) was nominated for an Academy Award and his performance as a socially inept loner in Lars and the Real Girl (2007) was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. In 2007, he starred in the courtroom thriller Fracture.

After a three-year acting hiatus, Gosling starred in both Blue Valentine and All Good Things in 2010. The former performance as a frazzled husband earned him a second Golden Globe nomination. 2011 proved to be a landmark year for the actor as he appeared in three mainstream films – the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, the thriller Drive and the political drama The Ides of March – and received two Golden Globe nominations.
He is due to appear in five upcoming films: the period crime feature Gangster Squad, the generational drama The Place Beyond the Pines, the revenge drama Only God Forgives, Terrence Malick’s Lawless, and a remake of the sci-fi film Logan’s Run.
Gosling’s band, Dead Man’s Bones, released their self-titled debut album and toured North America in 2009. He is a co-owner of Tagine, a Moroccan restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. He is a supporter of both PETA and the Enough Project and has travelled to Darfur, Uganda and eastern Congo to raise awareness about conflicts in the region. He has had relationships with actors Sandra Bullock (2002–03) and Rachel McAdams (2005–08) and lives in New York City.

Robert Downey Jr. in second “Sherlock Holmes” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Tuesday night, a second trailer for Guy Ritchie’s sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” aired during the Scream Awards on Spike TV. Warner quickly posted the new clip online, and we’re happy to share it with you below:

The teaser makes Ritchie’s second crack at a Sherlock Holmes story more explosive. Seriously, something’s blowing up every 10 seconds. Yet we’re interested in the explosive chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as Holmes and Watson, respectively, who this time appear to be matching wits with legendary adversary Moriarty (Jared Harris of “Mad Men”).
I thought Ritchie’s first “Holmes” was a witty and fast-paced ride that found a way to incorporate the director’s visual gimmicks with a twisty period mystery. Downey and Law helped sell the convoluted plot, mind you, and I’m guessing they’ll do even heavier lifting here.
Rachel McAdams can be spotted in the clip returning as Irene Adler. And the new girl is Noomi Rapace, best known for playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish Millennium trilogy (that’s about to be remade by David Fincher).
“Game of Shadows” will be in theaters on Dec. 16.
