Oscar Hopefuls Struggle at #BoxOffice

Here's the reason why so many hopefuls have fallen on hard times. Story by Matt Cummings In a year that will go down as the most profitable in box office history, Hollywood is shaking its head over a new problem: the disastrous run of Oscar hopefuls. What seemed like a small issue back in September has become a full-fledged marketing nightmare. From Our Brand is Crisis to Suffragette , audiences have stayed away in massive numbers, even in the face of critical praise. Take Steve Jobs for example. The biopic starring Michael Fassbender has made only $16.7m in 5 weeks, tumbling 65% in its second weekend of wide release. But don't tell critics that: it still enjoys an 85% Rotten Tomatoes rating, making it one of the highest-rated movies of the year. And yet audiences didn't buy it. And then there's The Walk , Burnt , Everest , 99 Homes , Truth , Room , and several others that have walked a very short gang plank into cultural obscurity. So, why the sad

Movie Review: 99 Homes

The bubble bursts on ham-handed housing drama. Review by Brandon Wolfe The housing crisis that dovetailed with the 2008 financial meltdown was a disaster that hampered and destroyed many, many lives, and as is often the case with major, world-shaking disasters, it now has its very own disaster movie. And while the fallout from these economic calamities has cropped up in several movies already ( Up in the Air being one of the earliest instances), 99 Homes is the first to specifically tackle the subprime mortgage crisis head-on. The film unsparingly examines the desperation, devastation and ruthless opportunism that ran rampant in the wake of that catastrophe, as financially crippled people were ejected from their homes while real-estate wheelers-and-dealers unscrupulously cleaned up. 99 Homes thrusts the audience right into the thick of this very ugly situation, taking great pains to mine the material for everything it’s worth. This is a movie with Something To Say, and it intends

#99HOMES Opens In Los Angeles On OCTOBER 2nd

NEW LOS ANGELES OPENING DATE IS NOW OCTOBER 2nd and OPENING ON SEPTEMBER 25th in New York at Lincoln Square and Angelika. In this timely thriller, charismatic and ruthless businessman, Rick Carver (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon ), is making a killing by repossessing homes - gaming the real estate market, Wall Street banks and the US government. When he evicts Dennis Nash (Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield ), a single father trying to care for his mother (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern ) and young son (newcomer Noah Lomax ), Nash becomes so desperate to provide for his family that he goes to work for Carver – the very man who evicted him in the first place. Carver promises Nash a way to regain his home and earn security for his family, but slyly seduces him into a lifestyle of wealth and glamour. It is a deal-with-the-devil that comes with an increasingly high cost - on Carver's orders, Nash must evict families from their homes. As Nash falls deeper into Carver'
