UK's Sky forced to postpone Scientology doc

14 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sky Atlantic has postponed airing Alex Gibney’s controversial documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, due to British libel laws.

The UK pay-tv broadcaster planned to air Gibney’s film, which lifts the lid on the secretive religious organisation, later this month after HBO broadcast the show in the Us at the end of March.

However, Sky could be left open to legal action from the group and its members - including leader David Miscavige - as Northern Ireland does not recognise the Defamation Act 2013, which is designed to ensure a fair balance is struck between the right to freedom of expression and the protection of reputation.

Sky is unable to geo-block content its channels, meaning it cannot prevent its Northern Irish subscribers from viewing the documentary if it is aired.

Going Clear was a Sky co-production with HBO and was executive produced by head of non-scripted Celia Taylor. It is produced »

Dakota Fanning reveals she gets mistaken for an Olsen twin

18 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Dakota Fanning gets mistaken for one of the Olsen twins. The 21-year-old actress - who starred alongside Tom Cruise in 'War Of The Worlds' - has revealed her neighbours in Manhattan, New York, confuse her for celebrity twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, 28, because of their strikingly similar physical traits. She shared: ''There's a man on my corner who thinks I'm an Olsen. He'll yell, 'Hey Olsen!' at me. It's really funny.'' As well as pursuing her career as an actress, Dakota has also been studying part-time at New York University, where her major is Women In Film. Dakota explained where the inspiration for her work came from, telling Nylon magazine: ''There aren't a lot of movies that are made for women - they always want to insert something so the guys will go. ''A director that I worked with, Naomi Foner, once said, 'Somebody decided a »

Patrick Dempsey, Jay Leno Weigh in on Paul Newman in Racing Documentary

17 April 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Racers and car enthusiasts rolled over to the charity screening of “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman” at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.

The film — preceded by a red carpet and followed by an after-party, both held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel — celebrated actor Paul Newman’s passion for racing with archived footage of the late actor and his wife, Joanne Woodward, who remained married until Newman’s death in 2008.

Director and producer Adam Carolla started making the film about two years ago. “It was just a story that I knew people didn’t know, and I wanted people to know it,” he said. Carolla talked to Bob Sharp, whose racing team Newman drove for from the mid ’70s until the ’90s, and together the two took a trip to Newman’s home track, Lime Rock Park in Salisbury, Connecticut, where the concept for the documentary took form. »

Josh Hartnett Explains Why He Turned Down Christopher Nolan's Batman Movies

17 April 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the early 2000s, young heartthrob Josh Hartnett was in a position that many young actors would envy. He had just starred in two big movies (“Pearl Harbor” and “Black Hawk Down”) from two very different auteurs, and for a while it seemed like he could be the next top tier star: a new Tom Cruise or Will Smith. But Hartnett avoided being locked down in any possible blockbuster franchise by turning down one superhero role after another, yet there’s one he regrets saying no to. In a short interview with Playboy (via Variety), Hartnett was asked about the times he was asked to play Superman for Bryan Singer in “Superman Returns,” Spider-Man for Sam Raimi’s film of the same name and Batman for Christopher Nolan. What was his reasoning for turning down such potentially lucrative roles? “The intensity of my sudden fame was overwhelming for me, and in the middle of that, »

Celebrating bad artwork on DVD reissues

17 April 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When a DVD gets a reissue, its distributor tends to change the artwork. Er, not always for the better...

Movie studios love having large catalogues of older movies. They guarantee a revenue stream after all, through TV sales, streaming services, and the occasional repackaging of a DVD and/or Blu-ray edition.

But new packaging means new artwork, and a star who was hot when the film first came around may have faded since. Plus, audience trends change. Plus, there's the added bonus of luring people to buy two copies. Marvellous!

Most of the time, artwork updates go without a hitch. But in recent times, particularly with 90s movies we've noticed, some of the updates, er, 'dumb things down' slightly. Most of these exhibits are from the UK, we should note. If we broadened it more than we had into the Us - which we may do in a future piece »

10 Secret Problems Only Disney Obsessed Adults Will Understand

15 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Secret Disney-loving adults: they’re everywhere. You just don’t know it. How could you grow up emerged in all the Disney films and come out the other side of childhood not still loving it?

Being a Disney fan when you’re an adult is hard. Unless you’re fully brazenly honest about how Disney has shaped your life and the person you are today, there’s probably only so many times you can truly express your love for Walt Disney and his amazing magical animated movies.

You’re full of Disney-related facts: like how Aladdin’s face was modelled on Tom Cruise’s. And how Pumbaa was the first ever Disney character ever to fart. And how Jumpy, Deafy, Dizzy and Wheezy didn’t make the cut for the dwarf’s names in Snow White.

But sometimes your friends are more interested in talking about the amazing time »

A Brief (Pun Intended) History of Lawyers in the Movies

13 April 2015 2:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Gregory Peck’s Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, »

Remake. Reboot. Rehash.

12 April 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rob Blues on remakes, reboots and rehashes…

There were three films I saw in the 1980’s that blew me away and in doing so scorched into my mind the brilliance of original film.

Ghostbusters, Back to the Future & The Goonies.

If you are my age then these films will hold a special place in your heart. The first time I fell in love with film for sure. I still genuinely believe that all three films are about as perfect as movies can get. I remember saying to a friend of mine a few years ago that if they ever decided to remake any of my holy trinity then I would stop watching films forevermore. I wouldn’t, I’d had a beer or two and might have gotten a bit carried away, but the sentiment was there. These films are surely untouchable.

And now a Ghostbusters reboot is in the offing. »

Flickering Myth’s Matt Spencer-Skeen interviews stunt performer Lucy Cork about her career and work on the upcoming Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation…

Matt Spencer-Skeen: So Lucy, we’ve known each other from school days and I remember you were always very sporty, how did this develop into you doing stunts?

Lucy Cork: Well I came from a dance and gymnastic background and used to perform on stage in front of live audiences. I loved the buzz of performing and getting instant feedback from the crowd. Through training in gymnastics and then doing martial arts I met some people in the business and they told me I should think about training to be a stuntwoman, so I worked hard at the required disciplines and here I am!

Mss: I looked at your stunt videos on YouTube and the car stuff you do on there is very impressive! How do you »

Top 5: WonderCon 2015, Star Wars on Digital HD, Sony Resurrects The Dark Tower, James Wan Eyed for Aquaman, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl Trailer

11 April 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

HBO launched its new standalone streaming platform, HBO Now, earlier this week and is currently offering a 30-day free trial of the service. While there's plenty to be said about HBO Now and what it could mean for the future of traditional pay TV, I'm bringing it up today for one purpose: to let you know that it can be used to watch director Alex Gibney's fantastic documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief for free, right now. Pay $14.99/month to use it faithfully for years to come or burn through the 30-day free trial and promptly kiss it goodbye. It makes no difference to me either way as long as you take advantage of it long enough to watch Going Clear. Premiering at Sundance earlier this year (read Matt's review), Gibney's film is an emotional, disconcerting look at the Church of Scientology from its conception by »
