An interesting rumor surfaced over the summer, suggesting that Michael Fassbender is playing not one, but two droid roles in Alien: Covenant — the dangerously mischievous synthetic David from Prometheus, and a new and somewhat improved iteration known as Walter. Those dual roles have already been confirmed, and now the actor himself has offered a few details about his intriguing new robot character. Read More: // here

As of this moment, 20th Century Women is my favorite movie of the year. Mike Mills‘ (Beginners) latest film is warm, compassionate, honest, and funny. It’s easily the director’s most accomplished feature to date. While watching 20th Century Women, there are themes that call to mind his previous features. Time is a crucial component of Mills’ work, and in 20th Century Women, he focuses on a very particular and relatable time in most peoples’ lives. Read More: // here

When Fox Searchlight Pictures’ “Jackie” premiered at the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival in September, the conversation immediately turned to Natalie Portman’s performance as the iconic first lady. The film, directed by Pablo Larraín with a screenplay by Noah Oppenheim, provides a brilliant vehicle for the actor’s many talents. In addition, the rest of the ensemble is stacked with actors who not only bolster Portman’s spectacular performance, but work together as an ensemble to create a rich new look at a pivotal moment in U.S. history. “Jackie” focuses on an interview Jacqueline Kennedy gave to a journalist (played by Billy Crudup) only a week after the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination of President John F.

Billy Crudup is one of the most dependable pitch-hitters for directors who are lucky enough to have him in an ensemble cast. This December the reliable actor plays a man who provides brief feats of hope for a house of women in 20th Century Women and he plays a journalist who’s tasked with profiling Jackie Kennedy after the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, in Jackie. With Women, Crudup is allowed to show his natural charm. With Jackie, the consummate professional that he is, Crudup allows his character to serve as a narrative device. Someone for the former first lady (Natalie Portman) to sound off against. It’s a role that won’t land on the actor’s best ever performances lists, but it perfectly suits the film and is a reminder that Crudup is always there to do what’s best for the film.
