Christian Slater and James Franco square off in gay porn drama 'King Cobra'
LATimes - over 1 year
“King Cobra” unzips a lurid package of betrayal, obsession and murder in the gay porn world that’s just as eye-opening for its pockets of behavioral fascination as for its seedier elements. So why is writer/director Justin Kelly like a kid who loves the shiny wrapping more than what’s inside? The...

James Franco Delves Into The World Of Gay Porn For 'King Cobra'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
James Franco strips down and pumps iron alongside Keegan Allen and Garrett Clayton in the first trailer for “King Cobra,” Justin Kelly’s hotly-anticipated gay porn biopic. The film, which hits theaters nationwide on Oct. 21, traces the relationship between real-life adult film actor Brent Corrigan (Clayton) and movie producer Bryan Kocis (Christian Slater). Co-stars Franco and Allen play a pair of rival porn producers who try to lure Corrigan away from Kocis’s clutches before things take a grisly turn.  The 29-year-old Corrigan, whose real name is Sean Paul Lockhart, distanced himself from “King Cobra” after the film premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival in April. Responding to a fan’s inquiry about the movie, he tweeted:  It's made. And it's not about me. It's Hollywood's attempt at bastardizing my early years in porn, one man's murder, blah blah @JamesPMBerry — Brent Corrigan (@BrentCorrigan) April 18, 2016 Reviews of the film were...

2016 Golden Globe Nominations Highlight 'Carol' And 'The Big Short'
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Awards season marched forward Thursday morning when Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Chloë Grace Moretz and Dennis Quaid announced the 2016 Golden Globe nominations at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. The Oscar race received another jump-start with Wednesday's Screen Actors Guild Award nods, and now -- according to awards lore -- the whole grand thing should be crystal clear.  The Globe noms aren't as surprising as the SAG shortlist, but we're still hard-pressed to find a definitive window into the Oscar derby. Purported Best Picture front-runner "Spotlight" collected fewer nominations than expected, with Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams all shut out of the acting categories. "Carol" came out on top with five nominations, while "Steve Jobs," "The Revenant" and "The Big Short" each nabbed four. ("Spotlight" has three, as do "The Martian," "Room" and "The Hateful Eight.") "Trumbo," a surprise SAG favorite that many Oscar pundits had written off,...

A Love Bath at the 25th Gotham Awards
Huffington Post - about 2 years
This Monday at the 25th IFP Gotham Awards -- the indie film world's kick-off to awards season -- was a bad night to be Queen Elizabeth. Off-color cracks by both presenter Robert de Niro and honoree Helen Mirren impugned her majesty's lack of -- well, to not go too Amy Schumer-esque here -- sexual viability. The jokes were inspired, of course, by Mirren's memorable turns as the royal on both screen and stage. But queen-bashing might have been the only negativity in an evening that felt like a great warm bath of love for movie makers both behind and in front of the camera. If prior Gothams were marred by non-stop yakking -- drowning out even past presenter, former Mayor Bloomberg -- on Monday, the cavernous Wall Street Cipriani glowed with good will and solidarity. Gathered here were world-class creatives and storytellers risking it all in a famously daunting business, rightly come to celebrate each other. The love went to screenwriters Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer for Spotlight, ...
