Shia Labeouf’s ‘He Will Not Divide Us’: Snapshots From the First Day of His 4-Year Performance Art Exhibit

21 January 2017 1:07 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As hundreds of thousands of people protest Donald Trump’s policies on Saturday by participating in Women’s Marches across the globe, Shia Labeouf’s 4-year anti-Trump performance art exhibit, “He Will Not Divide Us,” is attracting its own steady stream of participants.

Installed outside of the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York, the first day of the livestream took place on Inauguration Day and showed Labeouf, along with many others, chanting “He Will Not Divide Us.”  The exhibit had hundreds of people stopping by, including Jaden Smith, who repeated the phrase for several hours – both by himself and with crowds.

The exhibit will be open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week for four years or the duration of the presidency. People are invited to say the phrase as many times as they’d like, for as long as they wish.

Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando’s Rumored September 11 Road Trip: The Truth Behind the Myth

19 January 2017 1:06 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s one of the most irresistible, if improbable, Hollywood stories of recent times. After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, did Elizabeth Taylor escape New York City by getting in a rental car with Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando and driving all the way to Ohio?

Not so, says, Tim Mendelson, a close friend and trustee of Elizabeth Taylor’s estate, who was with her that week in Manhattan at the St. Regis Hotel. “There was never any road trip,” he says. “Elizabeth was in New York after 9/11 with Debbie Reynolds. She didn’t want Debbie to be alone.”

Looking Back 50 Years: A New Generation Takes Over

18 January 2017 6:16 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This month, Cinelinx is taking you on a trip back through time. Join us as we examine how movies have changed over the last 100 years. This week, we’re going back 50 years to 1967. 

This article is part 3 of 4 in a series. 

Read Part 1 Here: Looking Back 100 Years: The Birth of New Hollywood

Read Part 2 Here: Looking Back 75 Years: The War on Film

Two decades after the second world war, the children born during the postwar economic boom were coming of age. By 1964 they made up more than 40 percent of the population, and in 1966, Time Magazine declared that their “Person of the Year” was a shared honor among those that were age 25 or younger. In 1967, one could argue that these “baby boomers”, as they would come to be known, had officially taken the reigns from their parents to become the dominant segment of the population.

Here’s Why ‘The Jungle Book’ Deserves More Oscar Respect

13 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just as George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” James Cameron’s “Avatar,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” and Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” were cinematic groundbreakers for the ages, I believe Oscar voters should take Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” more seriously.

Favreau and screenwriter Justin Marks took Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of Mowgli and his brothers and, with help from James Cameron and Martin Scorsese’s go-to VFX master Rob Legato, created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi).

Maybe Favreau makes it look too easy. This isn’t fantasy-world “Avatar.” This is digital India. He calls up fond memories of Disney’s 1967 animated musical, weaving in a couple of songs and creating a grand set piece led by Christopher Walken as a giant ancient orangutan (gigantopithecus, »

The Controversial Michael Jackson TV Show Starring Joseph Fiennes Will Not Air, Thank God

13 January 2017 6:43 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When it was announced that Joseph Fiennes would play Michael Jackson in a British TV series, the internet, understandably, exploded. Hiring a white man to play a black man in the height of #OscarsSoWhite incited a digital riot, and nearly a year after the news, a teaser was released to remind us all that this was indeed a terrible, terrible idea. The episode, part of a series called Urban Myths airing on Sky Arts in the UK, is about a rumored road trip that Jackson went on with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando after 9/11. Paris Jackson, Jackson's 18-year-old daughter, spoke out against the series in a collection of tweets. Her cousin Taj Jackson also weighed in, saying, "Unfortunately this is what my family has to deal with. No words could express the blatant disrespect." In light of the (understandable) outcry, the teaser has been pulled and the episode will not air. »
