Miroslav Ondricek, Oscar-Nominated Czech Cinematographer, Dies at 80

29 March 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miroslav Ondricek, a Czech cinematographer who worked frequently with director Milos Forman and was nominated twice for Academy Awards, has died, according to several reports. He was 80.

Ondricek’s son David, who is also a filmmaker, announced the death to Czech television, though no cause was given.

Ondricek worked on more than 40 films in his career, about a dozen of which were shot in the U.S. He is perhaps best known for his work with friend Forman.

The two worked together on “Ragtime” and “Amadeus,” both garnering Oscar nominations for Ondricek for his cinematography. Ondricek won a BAFTA in 1984 for “Amadeus.” Ondricek and Forman, who currently lives in New York, also worked together on “Fireman’s Ball” early in Forman’s career and “Hair.”

Ondricek stayed busy throughout the ’90s, working with U.S. director Penny Marshall on 1990’s “Awakenings,” starring Robert De Niro and Robin Williams, and 1992 comedy “A League of Their Own, »

Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel in “The End of the Tour”

Champaign, Illinois isn’t quite Cannes or Park City, Utah, but the film festival hosted there annually in Roger Ebert’s name is as charming as they come. Now Ebertfest, in its 17th year, has announced its lineup of films prior to its four day run in April.

It was previously announced that Jean-Luc Godard’s acclaimed Goodbye to Language 3D would be the opening night film. Now Chaz Ebert has penned a touching love letter to her late husband detailing the choices they’ve made for the festival in his absence.

Among them are James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour, Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes, Roy Andersson’s A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting On Existence, Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood, and special screenings of A Bronx Tale with Robert De Niro and the 1926 silent film The Son of the Sheik »

Bradley Cooper in talks to star and direct ‘A Star is Born’ with Beyonce

24 March 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Could the Queen B be teaming up with the current king of the box office? Deadline reported Tuesday that Bradley Cooper is in talks to make his directorial debut with a remake of the classic showbiz drama and romance A Star is Born, and that Beyonce will be approached to star alongside Cooper in the film.

Nothing is confirmed yet, but Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. hopes he can jump into the project, along with producing and taking a stab at the script by Will Fetters (The Lucky One, Remember Me) once he is finished starring in the Broadway production of The Elephant Man.

The bigger complication however may not be securing Cooper, but Beyonce. Clint Eastwood has long been attached to this project, but he recently revealed in an interview with THR’s Stephen Galloway that Beyonce is obviously very busy being a super-megastar, and that Warner Bros. »

Jennifer Lawrence announces 'Apocalypse' is her last 'X-Men' movie

23 March 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jennifer Lawrence has stated that "X-Men: Apocalypse," which comes out May 27, 2016, will mark her last outing as Mystique, the comely blue mutant of the saga.  There's no telling who will play Mystique going forward, but the title "Apocalypse" makes you wonder just how many X-Men will survive the movie anyway. Lawrence has a bunch of other high-profile projects coming up, including "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II," "Joy," a David O. Russell-directed biopic of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano, and "The Dive," a James Cameron-directed biopic of Audrey Mestre, who died attempting to break her own single-breath diving record. Maybe all that blue makeup seems like too much trouble when you can just make more Oscar season movies with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.  Interestingly, all of the "X-Men: First Class" actors are contractually finished after "Apocalypse," including Lawrence's boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. It's time for renegotiations, »

StreamFix: 5 Netflix options that remind you why the legends rule

18 March 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The weekend is approaching. You deserve legendary Netflix entertainment. Check out our five picks starring legendary entertainers proving why they're fantastic.  Robert Redford is a bad-ass with a ladies' Wimbledon haircut in "Three Days of the Condor" There was a magical time called 1975 in which Robert Redford was indistinguishable from Martina Navratilova. Celebrate that sacred hour with "Three Days of the Condor," the caper starring Redford as a CIA analyst who goes into hiding with a sultry Brooklyn Heights dame (Faye Dunaway) as foes zero in on him. Plenty of Oscar cred here: In addition to Dunaway, John Houseman and Cliff Robertson have key roles, and nominee Max von Sydow scares the hell out of you as an Alsatian assassin. Bill Murray makes monotony a joy in "Groundhog Day" It took me until this year to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and I've decided Andie MacDowell does have a certain something. »

To coincide with the release of Halo: Nightfall on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD (read our review here), Ben Rayner sits down with Steve Waddington to talk all things Aiken…

Ben Rayner – How did you first get involved in the series?

Steve Waddington – You know it was in the traditional sense, my agent gave me a call and said that there was this interesting script for, originally we thought it was a film, a feature film. Such is the pace of the new media, the way things are made and the way people are actually viewing things, we just assumed it was a feature, because it came from Ridley’s company together with Xbox so there was a lot of cache even before I was a part of it. I went for the audition, had a recall which went very well and just from the audition process really.
