Video: Screenwriter Mike White explains his creative process

Mike White, the screenwriter behind School of Rock and Nacho Libre, has a very specific creative process. For starters, he’s up at 6 a.m. to start writing, and unlike a lot of writers, by 5 p.m., he’s said goodbye to his laptop for the day.

In an episode of the YouTube series Academy Originals from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, White explains why it is that he doesn’t write at night, and how he prepares for his morning bursts of creativity. (Hint: It involves sleep and yoga.) READ FULL STORY

'The Signal': Laurence Fishburne gives Brenton Thwaites the third degree in a hazmat suit -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Something strange is happening in the Southwest.

When a group of road-tripping MIT students on the hunt for a mysterious hacker venture into a particularly isolated desert stretch, everything goes dark. Nic (played by The Giver‘s Brenton Thwaites) eventually regains consciousness and finds himself bruised and disoriented. He’s a prisoner in a contained room, staring down a gravely serious, possibly menacing Laurence Fishburne. Also disconcerting? Fishburne is the only party in a protective hazmat suit.

Take a look at the ominous clip from director William Eubank’s stylish sci-fi mindbender after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Mia Wasikowska ignores Jesse Eisenberg in 'The Double' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

The-Double.jpg

Jesse Eisenberg’s Simon James has worked at the same company for seven years. You’d think that might give him some clout with the security people he sees nearly every day when his pass stops functioning. But, in director Richard Ayoade’s The Double, he is not only completely unrecognizable to them — he’s also someone to be suspicious of.

His world just keeps getting stranger as he actively has to sneak into a mandatory work party, where his crush, played with dreamy feistiness by Eisenberg’s real-life girlfriend Mia Wasikowska, doesn’t even notice him.

Check out the clip of the party after the jump, and all of its kitschy, surreal, Lynchian oddness. Just keep in mind that he hasn’t even met his doppelganger yet.

'The Giver': Black and white footage and a word from Lois Lowry -- VIDEO

The-Giver-trailer.jpg

Remember when we all freaked out that the first trailer for The Giver was in color? Well, a new featurette reveals that we may have jumped to conclusions too quickly.

“I began to think about how important memory is — what would happen if we could manipulate human memory,” author Lois Lowry explains in the video which goes a long way in helping to calm the nerves of longtime fans of her 1993 classic.

Then, we get the money shot of Jeff Bridges as The Giver in black and white preparing to give Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) all the memories of humanity. “You can take comfort in knowing you are completely helpless,” he says.

Check it out after the jump.

'Need for Speed': Michael Keaton gets psyched for the 'race before the race' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

“This is gettin’ good,” Michael Keaton’s ominously named Need for Speed character Monarch says to Aaron Paul’s Tobey Marshall in his signature manic gruff.

Monarch, it seems, has just gotten on board with the romance of Tobey’s quest. He’s speeding across the country (from New York to California in 48 hours, to be precise) with Imogen Poots’ Julia to compete in another race where he hopes to get revenge against the wealthy ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper), a lifelong rival who landed him in jail, hurt someone close to him, and stole his ex-girlfriend. Unfortunately it’s not as simple as cutting down on pit stops. Tobey is dodging parole and a bounty that Dino put on his head.

Still, Keaton’s Monarch is about as excited as we are to see him back in a scene-chewing supporting role. Check out the exclusive clip after the jump. READ FULL STORY

The Criterion Collection's Wes Anderson-approved 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' -- VIDEO

The folks at The Criterion Collection are sorcerers.

Sure, we rely on them to restore and pen beautiful essays about rare or long forgotten triumphs of cinema, but even their work with new releases can leave us awestruck. They have a way of making the already transcendent that much more special, and their upcoming release of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion charmer Fantastic Mr. Fox looks no different.

The three-disc release (out Feb. 18) features a gallery of Roald Dahl’s original manuscripts, an audio recording of him reading his book, puppet animation tests, and the somewhat standard, but no less fascinating, behind the scenes footage of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, and the rest of the cast who helped bring the story to life.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

'Winter's Tale' trailer: Colin Farrell rides a white horse, Russell Crowe growls -- VIDEO

A common thief falls in love with a tuberculosis-stricken beauty in the supernatural drama Winter’s Tale, starring Colin Farrell as said thief, and Jessica Brown Findlay (Lady Sybil!) as the object of his affection.

Winter’s Tale also boasts an impressive supporting cast including Will Smith, Eva Marie Saint, Matt Bomer, and Jennifer Connelly. Check out the trailer after the jump, and don’t blink or you might miss Smith.

'Enemy' trailer: Things get menacing when Jake Gyllenhaal meets Jake Gyllenhaal

What starts as a simple vanity quest turns sinister when a low-key history professor spots his mirror image in a film and eventually tracks him down.

Based on Nobel Prize-winner José Saramago’s novel The Double, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, and Isabella Rossellini round out Villeneuve’s cast as the women in the lives of the lookalikes.

'Rosemary's Baby'-inspired 'Devil's Due' is 'every new couple's worst nightmare,' Eli Roth says -- VIDEO

The filmmakers behind Devil’s Due will always be the first to admit that Roman Polanski’s 1968 classic Rosemary’s Baby inspired their film, a found-footage horror movie about a young newlywed who has the misfortune of being impregnated with a satanic being.

“We wanted to own it from the start. We didn’t want to pretend that it wasn’t that and hide it and make you wait. The scene where she gets impregnated is about 15 minutes into the movie,” said Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, who co-directed the film with his Radio Silence collective and V/H/S directing team Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez, and Chad Villella. She might not realize what’s going on, but the audience is never left in the dark.

“It was a really fun thing to watch Rosemary’s Baby and then get to borrow things that felt right for this version,” added Gillett.

'Nebraska' standout June Squibb pays her respects -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you have Midwestern roots, you probably know a Kate Grant. She’s hard-as-nails. She doesn’t suffer bullsh–. And, most importantly, she doesn’t have a filter.

In Nebraska, Descendants director Alexander Payne’s black-and-white ode to the heartland, June Squibb gives life to this archetype through the feisty Kate. The matriarch of the Grant family will just as soon call a long-deceased woman a whore as she’ll tell her son fairly explicit details about who fancied her in her youth.

“When I read this script I just thought, ‘I know this lady,'” Squibb told EW. “I’m from Illinois. I see her in my mother and my grandmother. Nothing surprised me.” According to Squibb, screenwriter Bob Nelson based the part on his mother-in-law.

The 84-year-old actress had worked with Payne in About Schmidt, which actually worked against her in the beginning. “In Alexander’s mind, I was that sweet lady that Jack was married to,” she says. But, despite his reservations, he gave her a shot. “Her audition knocked my socks off,” Payne said Monday at the AFI Fest screening of Nebraska. “I didn’t have a second-place gal to play that part.”
