Frost/Nixon (Drama)

Frost/Nixon DS 1 Sheet Movie Poster - Style A

Oscar®-winning director Ron Howard brings to the screen writer Peter Morgan’s (“The Queen,” “The Last King of Scotland”) electrifying battle between Richard Nixon, the disgraced president with a legacy to save, and David Frost, a jet-setting television personality with a name to make, in the untold story of the historic encounter that changed both: “Frost/Nixon.” Reprising their roles from Morgan’s stageplay are Frank Langella, who won a Tony for his portrayal of Nixon, and Michael Sheen, who fully inhabited the part of Frost onstage in London and New York.

For three years after being forced from office, Nixon remained silent. But in summer 1977, the steely, cunning former commander-in-chief agreed to sit for one all-inclusive interview to confront the questions of his time in office and the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency. Nixon surprised everyone in selecting Frost as his televised confessor, intending to easily outfox the breezy British showman and secure a place in the hearts and minds of Americans.

Likewise, Frost’s team harbored doubts about their boss’ ability to hold his own. But as cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits resulted. Would Nixon evade questions of his role in one of the nation’s greatest disgraces? Or would Frost confound critics and bravely demand accountability from the man who’d built a career out of stonewalling? Over the course of their encounter, each man would reveal his own insecurities, ego and reserves of dignity–ultimately setting aside posturing in a stunning display of unvarnished truth.

“Frost/Nixon” not only re-creates the on-air interview, but the weeks of around-the-world, behind-the-scenes maneuvering between the two men and their camps as negotiations were struck, deals were made and secrets revealed…all leading to the moment when they would sit facing one another in the court of public opinion.

“Frost/Nixon” is a collaboration between Imagine Entertainment and Working Title Films, with Academy Award® winners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard joining Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner as producers. Joining Langella and Sheen as the colorful real-life personalities who provide the men counsel is a formidable roster of actors including Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, Sam Rockwell, Toby Jones and Matthew Macfadyen.

The Wrestler (Action/Drama)

Wrestler DS 1 Sheet Movie Poster - Style A

Back in the late ’80s, Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey.

Estranged from his daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) and unable to sustain any real relationships, Randy lives for the thrill of the show and the adoration of his fans. However, a heart attack forces him into retirement. As his sense of identity starts to slip away, he begins to evaluate the state of his life — trying to reconnect with his daughter, and strikes up a blossoming romance with an aging stripper (Marisa Tomei). Yet all this cannot compare to the allure of the ring and passion for his art, which threatens to pull Randy “The Ram” back into his world of wrestling.

Director Darren Aronofsky presents a powerful portrait of a battered dreamer, who despite himself and the odds stacked against him, lives to be a hero once again in the only place he considers home – inside the ring.

Cast: Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood, Mark Margolis, Todd Barry; Directed by: Darren Aronofsky

    Notorious

    The folks over at IGN share their knowledge on the upcoming B.I.G. biopic, “Notorious”.

    Long before prolific rapper The Notorious B.I.G. was shot in a still unsolved 1997 drive-by, he was growing up on the streets of Brooklyn’s Bed-Sty neighborhood, making his way as a hustler. Biggie, born Christopher Wallace, was the only son of his single mother. He began dealing drugs at the age of 12 and became further involved in a life of crime after dropping out of high school at age 17.

    Biggie’s rap career took off when he was discovered by record producer extraordinaire Sean (now “Diddy” then “Puffy”) Combs.

    The early 1990s saw Biggie take the hip-hop world by storm — his 1994 debut Ready to Die hit #13 on the Billboard chart and ultimately went quadruple Platinum. B.I.G. is often credited as the savior of East Coast rap as the album was released at a time when the scene was being almost entirely dominated by West Coast rappers. But this success resulted in B.I.G. becoming further embroiled in the highly publicized bi-coastal rap rivalry.

    Things became especially contentious between Biggie and former colleague Tupac Shakur. But the lives of both rap stars would come to tragic ends within six months of each other. Shakur was killed in a drive-by in September 1996, and B.I.G. was similarly murdered on March 9, 1997.

    In death, Biggie continued to be a best-selling artist — the diamond-certified Life After Death was released just 15 days after his passing — and has come to be regarded as a cultural icon for his influence on the hip-hop world.

    It’s no wonder then that Hollywood is rushing to tell Wallace’s story in Notorious. The Fox Searchlight flick won’t hit theaters until January 16, but we’ll break it down for you right now.

    Here’s the 411 on Notorious…
