Newswire: Al Gore is making a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, out next year

12 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ten years ago, Al Gore’s Oscar-winning climate change documentary An Inconvenient Truth did its best to force the world to briefly sit up and pay attention to the crisis of global warming, before getting distracted by whatever latest buffoonery was happening on reality TV. Now, Gore has announced that a sequel film is in the works, set to premiere at next year’s Sundance Film Festival.

According to Variety, the film will premiere on January 19, 2017, the festival’s opening night. Directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, the new film will follow Gore’s efforts to travel the world, educating and learning about climate change, and also to remind people that Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t the only famous person who cares about global warming.

“Now more than ever we must rededicate ourselves to solving the climate crisis,” Gore told reporters during the announcement. “But we have reason ...

‘Silence’ Review: Martin Scorsese Delivers a Gorgeous Crisis-of-Faith Drama

16 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Beyond pouty gangsters, Catholic guilt is the most reliable theme in Martin Scorsese’s movies. From its overt expression in “The Last Temptation of Christ” to the undercurrents in “The Departed,” Scorsese’s filmography embraces the notion of a spiritual code governing the lives of deeply conflicted men. “Silence,” a gorgeous and reverential treatment of 17th-century Jesuit priests facing persecution in feudal Japan, epitomizes this side of the Scorsese coin while dulling its edges. A slow-burn tale filled with beautiful imagery and understated performances, its elegance yields one of Scorsese’s most subtle efforts.

By no means a masterwork, “Silence” nevertheless displays the first-rate craftsmanship. However, it’s a surprisingly subdued approach to a story filled with vicious struggles involving men wandering the wilderness at their wits’ end, avoiding perils such as torture by boiling water and decapitation. (Even so, it’s less violent than the 1971 version; both are adapted from Shusaku Endo’s book. »

Newswire: Tom Hardy lost a bet, has to get a Leonardo DiCaprio tattoo

8 December 2016 2:52 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Betting against Leonardo DiCaprio used to be a pretty safe move back in the day when the actor simply could not get a win at the Oscars year after year. But Tom Hardy has learned the hard way to never wager with DiCaprio. When Hardy refused to believe the Academy would acknowledge his supporting work in The Revenant, which went on to grab 12 Oscar nominations and win three, DiCaprio insisted he was wrong. Hardy made things interesting by proposing a bet: If he got nominated, he’d have to get a tattoo of DiCaprio’s choosing, and vice versa.

As we all know, Hardy got that supporting actor nomination. The Revenant director Alejandro G. Iñárritu and DiCaprio both won their categories, while Hardy lost to Mark Rylance. Hardy lost the award, but more importantly, he lost the bet. In an interview with Esquire, he revealed that DiCaprio wrote “Leo ...

Johnny Depp is Hollywood’s most overpaid actor for the second year running

8 December 2016 2:40 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

2016 hasn’t been the greatest of years for Johnny Depp both personally and professionally, and now he’s rounded out the year by being named by Forbes as the most overpaid actor in Hollywood for the second year running.

Forbes calculates its list by working out how much studios have earned in return for every dollar paid to each actor, taking into account their last three films prior to June 2016 (excluding animated films, and those receiving only a limited release) – which unfortunately for Depp included the box office bomb Alice Through the Looking Glass, which grossed just $300 million from its $170 million budget.

Still, next year he has Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, so that should surely get him back on track, right..?

Here’s the ten most overpaid actors from Forbes list for 2016…

1. Johnny Depp ($2.80 for every $1 paid)

2. Will Smith ($5.00 for every $1 paid)

3. Channing Tatum ($6 for »

Tom Hardy Reveals He Must Get a ‘Sh*tty’ Leonardo DiCaprio Tattoo After a Losing Bet About ‘The Revenant’

8 December 2016 11:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Revenant” was one of the best films of 2015, earning 12 Oscar nominations and winning three Academy Awards, including best director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu and best actor for Leonardo DiCaprio.

Tom Hardy, who co-starred as John Fitzgerald, also received a nomination for his gritty performance. The actor revealed in an interview with Esquire that he didn’t believe he would get acknowledged by the Academy, even when DiCaprio was convinced he would. That was when Hardy decided to bet a tattoo of “the winner’s choosing” that he wouldn’t be nominated.

“[DiCaprio] wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything,’” he explained. “Ha! I was like, ‘Ok, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.’” Hardy, of course, did nab the nomination for best supporting actor.

“I haven’t got it yet,” he said, “because it sucks.”

Visiting the set of War For The Planet Of The Apes

Ryan Lambie Dec 9, 2016

Last year, we braved the cold Vancouver autumn to visit the set of War For The Planet Of The Apes. Here's what happened...

Nb: The following contains a spoiler for 2014's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.

The great maverick directors of the 70s and 80s went to some very strange places in their quest for realism. Werner Herzog coaxed a legion groaning extras to drag a full-size, very heavy steamboat up the side of a Central American mountain in Fitzcarraldo. William Friedkin’s underappreciated masterpiece The Sorcerer sent Roy Scheider off in a truck over a long and very rickety-looking bridge. Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now famously took in heart attacks, purloined corpses and fits of megalomania in the deeper, darker parts of the Philippines »

Tom Hardy Has to Get a Leonardo DiCaprio Tattoo for Losing Revenant Bet

8 December 2016 8:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tattoos are possibly the worst wager in any bet, as Tom Hardy learned the hard way after shooting last year's acclaimed wilderness drama The Revenant. Either not feeling too sure about his work, or how the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would respond, Hardy bet against himself getting an Oscar nomination while shooting on set. And he lost in the worst possible way.

Anyone following the behind-the-scenes ordeals associated with director Alejandro G. Inarritu's 2015 opus The Revenant knows that it was a grueling shoot that took its toll on all involved. Both Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy were well-rewarded for their hardships endured in the freezing weather. And let's not forget that DiCaprio had to tussle with a real live bear. DiCaprio even nabbed his first well-deserved Oscar, which was a long time coming.

But Tom Hardy isn't so lucky. He's getting what has been described as a 'shitty' tattoo. »

Costa Rica’s Big Movie Dreams: How a Country With 150 Theaters Plans to Improve the Central America Film Industry

8 December 2016 5:37 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Costa Rica may be best known for its dense rain forests and a competitive soccer team, but recent efforts suggest that its filmmaking could join those ranks sometime in the near future.

A little over two years ago, Costa Rica’s film industry was driven by big dreams — a stable film commission, production funds to encourage local filmmakers, tax incentives — that are looking more realistic by the day. By mid-2015, shortly after the election of President Luis Guillermo Solis, the new administration appointed a film commissioner who will assume full-time duties by 2017.

Johnny Depp Is Once Again America’s Most Overpaid Actor

7 December 2016 6:07 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that Johnny Depp just can’t seem to find a good role lately, he’s still demanding extremely high paychecks for his work. The once upon a time A-lister is now more often than not found starring in one bomb after another, with his recent filmography cluttered up with mediocre projects like Alice Through the Looking GlassMortdecaiTranscendenceThe Lone Ranger and Dark Shadows, among others.

Admittedly, it isn’t all doom and gloom for Mr. Depp, as he earned a fair amount of praise for his turn in Black Mass last year and is now part of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise. Still, he’s just not the box office draw that he used to be and as such, he’s now found himself as America’s most overpaid actor for the second year in a row.

'Forbes' Dubs Johnny Depp Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actor

7 December 2016 5:24 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Johnny Depp has topped Forbes' list of "Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors" for the second consecutive year.

While his massive success with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies made him one of the most in-demand stars (the first four films grossed $3.7 billion), it's been five years since the most recent installment of the Walt Disney franchise, and films like Alice Through the Looking Glass didn't yield the same returns.

According to Forbes, their rundown looked at "the last three films each actor starred in before June 2016, save animated films, movies where the actor appeared in an insignificant role, or movies that were released on fewer than 2,000 screens. We then deducted the estimated production budget from the global box office for each film according to Box Office Mojo to come up with a limited definition of each movie's operating income »

Johnny Depp Is Most Overpaid Actor for Second Year in a Row

7 December 2016 2:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Johnny Depp, in a time not all that long ago, was easily one of the most promising, praised and in-demand actors in all of Hollywood. Now, while still in fairly high-demand, his promise and prominence have definitely taken a steep dive. For the second year in a row, he has been named Hollywood's most overpaid actor.

Forbes recently published their list of overpaid actors for 2016 and just like in 2015, Johnny Depp came out on top. With movies like Alice Through the Looking Glass flopping at the box office, the actor managed to only bring in $2.80 for $1 he was paid for starring in the movie. That is an incredibly bad return and says a lot about just how far he has fallen. Even his more recent outings that were well received, like Black Mass, didn't bring in very much at the box office, but he was still paid a hefty sum for his services. »

Johnny Depp Ranked Most Overpaid Actor for Second Straight Year

The annual Forbes list of the top 10 most overpaid actors in Hollywood ranks Johnny Depp in the top spot for the second year in a row.

To compile the list, Forbes’ analysts examined the last three significant movies (released on at least 2,000 screens) the actor was in prior to June, then calculated the operating income of those films and then divided that by the star’s estimated pay for those films to come up with a number for final return on investment.
