Tasche-tastic! First look at the star-studded Murder on the Orient Express

3 May 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Now that is a line-up! EW has today debuted the first look at the huge and eclectic cast for the new adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, set for release this Christmas.

As you can see from the photos below, the costume and production design is vast and quaint with the hair and makeup team working overtime to re-create the look of the classic murder-mystery novel for the new film. This time the tale is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Cinderella) and produced by Ridley Scott (Alien: Covenant) and Simon Kinberg (The Martian).

On his role as Poirot, Branagh told EW:

“He has a military background, he’s a former policeman, and so there’s a kind of action-man quality to him,”.

The classic novel was first published in 1934 and was first brought to the big screen in 1974 by Sidney Lumet (Dog Day Afternoon »

Bogie & Bacall! Dark Passage April 19th at The Tivoli – ‘Classics in the Loop’

16 April 2017 5:20 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You know, it’s wonderful when guys like you lose out. Makes guys like me think maybe we got a chance in this world.”

Dark Passage (1947) screens Wednesday April 19th at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar in ‘The Loop’) as part of their new ‘Classics in the Loop’ Crime & Noir film series. The movie starts at 7pm and admission is $7. It will be on The Tivoli’s big screen.

Dark Passage (1947) was the third of the four Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall pairings of the 40s. It’s the least remembered, but it’s great entertainment and Bacall and Bogart really steam up the screen. The movie starts off brilliantly, shown from the P.O.V. of Vincnet Parry (Bogart), a prison escapee, who has been wrongly incarcerated for his wife’s murder. While on the run he is picked up by a beautiful woman who has been following his case »

All That Hollywood Allows: Douglas Sirk’s Brilliant Melodramas

5 April 2017 6:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The European filmmaker directed a series of deceptively complex melodramas in the 1950s.“This is the dialectic — there is a very short distance between high art and trash, and trash that contains an element of craziness is by this very quality nearer to art” — Douglas Sirk

Douglas Sirk was born in Germany in 1900, and began his career in the early 1920s working in theater. In 1922, he directed his first production — an adaptation of Hermann Bossdorf’s Stationmaster Death, and from then on he became one of the most respected theater directors in Weimar Germany. Then, in 1934, he took a job as a film director at Ufa, the biggest studio in Germany at the time.

In 1941, Sirk left Germany and began working as a director in Hollywood. His early films, such as the WWII drama Hitler’s Madman (1942) have largely been forgotten. These early films varied in genre — he directed war films (Mystery Submarine), historical dramas (A Scandal in Paris), film »

It Came From The Tube: Cast A Deadly Spell (1991)

12 March 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Melding together genres seldom works. It’s a delicate balancing act; tone is key, and when either (or both) are off the whole thing can come crashing down. By 1991, HBO was already offering up original programming and decided to create a whole new sub genre – horror noir. The result was Cast a Deadly Spell, a very entertaining and perfectly concocted mixture of 1940s detective story and supernatural terror. And when the balance is right, like it is here, the results are sublime.

Originally airing on HBO on Saturday, September 7th, CaDS was met with critical acclaim as a riotous mashup of Bogart and the Dark Arts, treating audiences to a unique blend of murder and magic.

Let’s open up our sacred book of incantations, TV Guide, and see what we’re in for:

Film News: TCM Host & Film Historian Robert Osborne Dies at 84

6 March 2017 12:11 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

New York City – Robert Osborne, one of the great film advocates and historians of our era, who hosted on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) with passionate skill from 1994 until recently, has passed away on March 6th, 2017, in New York City. The way that Mr. Osborne inspired film lovers everywhere was deep and influential. He was 84.

I was lucky enough to meet the man, naturally at a Chicago movie theater, back in 2005. Five years later, as I became a film reporter myself, I got to interview Ro via phone. He was the type of film man that you could spend a month with and never come to the end of his knowledge, and the way he shared it as the host on TCM was as if the finest uncle was giving us life lessons. Next to Roger Ebert, Robert Osborne is another reporter legend who galvanized my love for film.

Film historian Robert Osborne, the effervescent primetime host of Turner Classic Movies since the cabler’s inception in 1994, has died. He was 84.

TCM’s general manager Jennifer Dorian released a statement saying, “All of us at Turner Classic Movies are deeply saddened by the death of Robert Osborne. Robert was a beloved member of the Turner family for more than 23 years. He joined us as an expert on classic film and grew to be our cherished colleague and esteemed ambassador for TCM. Robert was embraced by devoted fans who saw him as a trusted expert and friend. His calming presence, gentlemanly style, encyclopedic knowledge of film history, fervent support for film preservation and highly personal interviewing style all combined to make him a truly world-class host. Robert’s contributions were fundamental in shaping TCM into what it is today and we owe him a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.

Cécile de France stars in Étienne Comar's Django Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

On the opening night of the Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in New York, Cécile de France who stars with Reda Kateb (as Django Reinhardt) in Étienne Comar's Django, spoke with me about costume designer Pascaline Chavanne, Man Ray's muse Lee Miller as the inspiration for her character, Lauren Bacall, Edward Hopper and Claude Miller's Un Secret.

Reda Kateb plays Django Reinhardt Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Django, based on the novel by Alexis Salatko, chronicles a crucial time period in world-famous jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt's life and simultaneously sheds light on the hypocrisy and contradictions at the core of Nazi policies. Admired for his musical genius, Reinhard, because of his Romani background, also was a target of the regime. In 1943, Django was a star in Paris and received an invitation by Goebbels to come play in Berlin. »

2017 Oscars: 6 Surprisingly Close Races to Watch

24 February 2017 5:29 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For weeks now, Oscar pundits and awards-circuit journalists have been saying virtually the same thing: La La Land should dominate the night; Zootopia has all but picked up its statuette and put it on a mantel; the impeccably written Manchester by the Sea will almost assuredly go home with the Best Original Screenplay award. When narratives like this cement themselves around the Academy Awards, as they do almost every year, it's tough to shake off what seems like an inevitability. But as anyone who's been covering the show for a minute or three knows, »

Kirk Douglas: ‘I never thought I’d live to 100. That’s shocked me’

12 February 2017 6:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He uses a walker, and a stroke has affected his speech, but the old charm is still there as the actor recalls his old Hollywood friends Burt Lancaster and John Wayne – and how he was never really a tough guy

Both the house and the man are smaller than you would expect, a result of the diminishing effects of old age that come to us all, if we are lucky enough to live that long. Kirk Douglas, now 100 years old, and Anne, his wife of 62 years, moved into the small bungalow in Beverly Hills about 30 years ago when they downsized from the multiple mansions where they had entertained friends such as Fred Astaire, Lauren Bacall and Ronald Reagan while Frank Sinatra knocked up Italian meals in their kitchen. But if their current home looks unprepossessing from the outside, there are extraordinary treasures within: a Roy Lichtenstein, personally inscribed to Douglas, »

Crashes Fuel High-Risk Oscar Race

6 February 2017 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s a long-established maxim that fans of auto racing are (consciously or unconsciously) there to see what happens when things go bad. If high-speed racing didn’t involve the risk of crashes and rollovers, who knows what the attendance would look like. And like racing, awards season, especially when the rubber hits the Oscar road, has its own grisly thrills and chills.

And it’s not just accountants and bankers who find the sight of red ink flowing irresistible.

Today, the moment any awards or nominations are announced, the internet is buzzing with “snubs and surprises” stories. They’re the red meat of awards season, the kudos equivalent of the Formula One favorite hitting the wall, the Indy black sheep who comes from last place to take the Borg-Warner Trophy.

Oscar history is packed with “what just happened?” moments. Among the toppers:
