Time Machine: Veterans Wallach and Coppola - Godfather 3 in Common - Are Special Oscar Honorees

24 April 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine.

Lincoln Center Chaplin Gala To Fete Robert Redford

24 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Has any contemporary movie star more intriguingly chafed at the gilded prison of stardom than Robert Redford? Certainly, he was not the first — or the last — matinee idol who endeavored to show us there was more to him than just a pretty face (or, in Redford’s particular case, that California tan, those blazing baby blues, and that wonderfully, ridiculously tousled hair).

Some actors, so inclined, stretch themselves in their choice of material; others add producing, directing, and even political activism to the mix. But “Bob” did all that and still felt somehow unfulfilled. So, rather like a fussy housewife forever rearranging the living room furniture, he gazed out at a sizable property he owned in the mountains of Utah and thought that an institute devoted to the cultivation and support of American independent filmmakers might look awfully nice over there.

If Sundance now seems nearly as iconic as Redford himself, »

CinemaCon: Hollywood Bets Big, from Warner Bros. to Disney

22 April 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

One of the fun things about CinemaCon is being able to see the footage on the big screen. While everyone pays lip service to the extraordinary way that "American Sniper" scored at the global box office ($532 million worldwide), playing to every possible demo, and Clint Eastwood's highest-grossing film to date, the truth is that Hollywood will only step up to making that kind of movie when all the right elements line up.  Bless Eastwood, who was tributed here, for going against the grain. He gets away with it. "I read comic books when I was a kid, I don't read them now," said Eastwood, who prefers his films rated PG 13 or R. But mostly every studio is doubling down --as are the theater owners -- on making moviegoing an event experience. That means Big. Huge spectacles, more luxurious theaters, more IMAX screens, better 3D, faster frame rates, better sound »

Clint Eastwood says he didn't threaten to kill Michael Moore

22 April 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - Clint Eastwood took center stage at CinemaCon on Wednesday during a lunch and Q&A reflecting on his career.  The 84-year-old legend was on hand to receive an award from Fandango for "American Sniper," his biggest hit to date. "Sniper," the story of U.S. sniper and Iraq veteran Chris Kyle, found surprising support from both sides of the political aisle. There were some outspoken dissenters, however, and during a conversation with THR's Stephen Galloway, Eastwood volunteered to clear up one particularly nasty rumor that had made the rounds regarding fellow Oscar winner Michael Moore. In January, Moore made a number of comments about how he views snipers as "cowards."  These are opinions based on the fact his own Uncle had been killed by one during Ww II.  As you'd expect, the conservative media did not take these statements lightly and it created something of a firestorm »

Clint Eastwood was the guest of honor at “The Legend of Cinema Luncheon” at the annual CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Following a clip reel featuring everything from Westerns and war movies to action movies, dramas and “chick flicks,” Eastwood sat down to discuss his career and why he’s still working at the age of 84, showing no signs of slowing down. “The reason I’m still making. »

Clint Eastwood on Michael Moore Feud, Why He Won’t Do Comic Book Movies

22 April 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Clint Eastwood may be cinema’s best known avenger, but the “Dirty Harry” star won’t be donning a cape and tights to fight crime.

“I read comic books when I was a kid; I don’t read them now,” said Eastwood during a question and answer session about his life and career at the Las Vegas exhibition trade show CinemaCon on Wednesday.

That means he won’t be appearing in a Marvel movie anytime soon. “I prefer adult-oriented pictures,” Eastwood said. “I mean that in the PG-13 or R sense, but that’s as far as it goes.”

Eastwood also revealed that even though he’s world famous, he still buys tickets to see movies on the bigscreen. He most recently made the trip to the multiplexes to see “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and plans to support his son Scott by paying full freight to see “The Longest Ride. »

Director Christopher Nolan has come aboard Martin Scorsese's film preservation nonprofit Film Foundation, which has resurrected classics since 1990 including Powell and Pressburger's "Tales of Hoffmann" earlier this year. He joins a top-drawer coterie of members that already includes Woody Allen, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, Francis Ford Coppola, Clint Eastwood, Curtis Hanson, Peter Jackson, Ang Lee, George Lucas, Alexander Payne, Robert Redford and Steven Spielberg. Nolan, like Scorsese, has long been outspoken and passionate about celluloid, and prefers to shoot his movies on film. At a recent Getty Museum summit, as reported by Variety, Christopher Nolan made a rallying cry to save the medium: "There’s a reason filmmakers get very excited about shooting film and seeing film prints, and we have to communicate that to audiences around the world."

When he was honored at an event at CinemaCon Wednesday, Clint Eastwood shared thoughts on his acting career, his interest in directing and one of his most vocal critics: Michael Moore. The American Sniper helmer, who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter's Stephen Galloway at the annual convention, told the crowd that he had been asked many times about Moore's comments against his war drama. "Everyone is saying I threatened to kill Michael Moore – that's not true ... but it isn't a bad idea," he joked, getting a big laugh from the crowd. "Once years ago somebody asked me what

Christopher Nolan Joins Film Foundation Board

22 April 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan has joined the board of The Film Foundation, Martin Scorsese’s non-profit film preservation organization.

Scorsese, the founder and chair of the organization, noted that Nolan has been a longtime advocate of sustaining celluloid film in the digital era.

“Chris’s passion, knowledge and dedication to film is unparalleled,” he said. “He spearheaded the growing movement to ensure that film stock continues to be available for production and preservation.  I know that his commitment to film and its preservation will be enormously helpful to the work of the foundation.”

Nolan’s “Interstellar” opened first at 240 film-using theaters in the U.S. last November, two days prior to its wide release in theaters using digital projection. Nolan shot the movie with a combination of 35mm anamorphic film and 65mm Imax.

Hollywood’s Love Affair With Mature Audiences Is Heating Up

22 April 2015 6:56 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tech-obsessed youths in recent years are turning away from movie theaters in record numbers, but attendance by the 40-plus crowd is hitting all-time highs. Hollywood’s budding romance with older moviegoers is something of a shotgun wedding, to a degree, but the industry is learning and trying to do the little things that please, because mature audiences today are playing a lead role in the box office fates of more and more films. It’s most apparent on the creative side. “American Sniper,” one of this year’s biggest hits, was directed by 79-year-old Clint EastwoodRidley Scott and Martin Scorsese »

Warner Bros. Floods Film Zone, But Batman, Superman and ‘Beasts’ Are a Year Away

21 April 2015 7:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From male strippers to apocalyptic road warriors, Warner Bros. unloaded a slate packed with a diverse range of films that it hopes pack in audiences at CinemaCon on Tuesday.

The studio promises to deliver in quantity even if it falls short of quality. This summer alone, Warner Bros. will unveil eight films, a massive figure in an age in which studios are dramatically scaling back the number of productions they greenlight.

Paramount for instance, which presented its pared-down slate to exhibitors earlier in the day, will host a quarter of that amount.

“People still want to go to the movies,” said Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara. “We made a strategic decision to continue making more movies at a time when other studios are making less.”

Though pictures such as the earthquake thriller “San Andreas” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” drew hearty applause from the crowd of theater owners, 2015 promises to »

Bluray Review: Escape From New York

21 April 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Scream Factory has most certainly done a fine job of bringing a lot of John Carpenter’s filmography to genre fans everywhere. With great collector’s edition Blurays of everything from Carpenter’s Prince Of Darkness, They Live and Assault On Precinct 13, to the complete Halloween collection and even Carpenter’s Body Bags anthology. It’s been great to see some of my favorite films not only being re-released with amazing new transfers and sound, and to see films like The Fog and various other Carpenter films find new audiences and appreciation due to the resurgence that the gang at Sf have helped kickstart.

Adding to the growing Carpenter lineup at Sf, is today’s brand new release of the master of horror’s 1981 action classic, Escape From New York. With a brand new 2K scan of the inter-positive and an almost endless supply of supplemental material, this release »
