Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga’s ‘Star Is Born’ Moves to May 2018

22 September 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “A Star Is Born” remake starring Stefani Germanotta (Lady Gaga) and Bradley Cooper, who is also directing, is moving up its release to May 18, 2018.

The pic was originally set to open Sept. 28, 2018 but the studio sees it as a strong counter-programming move by putting it in the midst of summer tentpoles. The studio pulled a similar move when it pushed its “Great Gatsby” remake starring Leonardo DiCaprio from December to May, which worked in its favor as the film went to gross more then $300 million worldwide. The film will go up against an untitled Laika production and Screen Gems’ “Slenderman” pic.

Cooper will play Jackson Maine, a country music star who discovers a talented unknown named Ally (Germanotta). As Ally’s career quickly eclipses his own, Jack struggles to accept that his best days may be behind him, putting a strain on their budding romance.

Previous versions of the film include the 1937 film with Fredric March »

Matt Damon to Receive BAFTA Britannia Award As He Enters Oscar Season With Two Bold, Divisive Roles

20 September 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Matt Damon is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and a superb actor. This fall audiences anticipate his return in two high-profile award-season movies. He plays a rather nasty character in “Suburbicon,” a film noir ’50s dramedy adapted from a Coen brothers script and directed by George Clooney, Damon’s old chum and “Oceans” co-star. And he’s a goofy sad sack in “Downsizing,” a future-world sci-fi comedy with an ecological message from Oscar perennial Alexander Payne, in which he becomes 5 inches tall to save the environment.

It makes perfect sense for BAFTA to present Damon with a well-deserved award — the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film — at the Britannia Awards October 27 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. After all, he won an Oscar in 1997 with buddy Ben Affleck for writing “Good Will Hunting,” and was nominated for his performances in that movie as well as “Invictus” and “The Martian, »

Matt Damon to Receive Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award

20 September 2017 12:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles announced on Wednesday that Matt Damon will be the recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at this year’s ceremony.

Matt Damon is undoubtedly one of the most talented and respected actors working in film today,” said BAFTA Los Angeles chairman Kieran Breen. “Having made a remarkable impact at a young age with ‘Good Will Hunting,’ he has developed a phenomenal career — combining both big-budget studio movies and acclaimed independent films. As a favorite of some of the top contemporary directors in our industry, it seems particularly fitting that we are honoring his career with an award bearing the name of the legendary Stanley Kubrick.”

Sean Penn to Star in Beau Willimon’s Mars Series ‘The First’ at Hulu

20 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sean Penn has signed on to star in Beau Willimon’s upcoming Hulu series “The First,” Variety has learned.

“The First” is set in the near future and follows the first human mission to Mars. The series explores the challenges of taking the first steps toward interplanetary colonization. Hulu gave the show a straight-to-series order in May. The exact details of Penn’s role are being kept under wraps.

Penn has appeared on various television shows throughout his career, but this marks his first regular role on a series. He has previously appeared on shows such as “Ellen,” “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Two and a Half Men,” and “Friends.”

Penn is one of the most accomplished film actors of his generation, having been nominated for five Academy Awards throughout his career. He was nominated for Best Actor for “Dead Man Walking,” “Sweet and Lowdown,” and “I Am Sam” before winning his first Oscar in 2003 for his role »

Are You Ready for the Most Exciting Oscar Race in Years?

19 September 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The leaves are turning. The Emmys are behind us. The crowds in Venice, Telluride, Colo., and Toronto have dispersed. Oscar season is officially here.

As the industry spins out of the late-summer film festival circuit, which annually grinds the gears of the season to life, this year’s race is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ever observed in the early stages. There are plenty of strong contenders, but no out-and-out frontrunner. There isn’t even an agreed-upon trio of frontrunners, as there was last year when “Manchester by the Sea,” “La La Land” and “Moonlight” burst out of this corridor.

Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” was the first slam-dunk on the scene in July. Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” was the first major festival splash after that, premiering on Aug. 31 within hours of another instant player, Joe Wright’s “Darkest Hour,” though they debuted thousands of miles apart; “Shape” landed in »

Ynms: "All The Money In The World"

19 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. This year is going to have quite a bit of late breaking Oscar hopefuls based on fact, including Steven Spielberg's The Post (is that what it's called today?) and maybe a Clint Eastwood film about a true life thwarted terrorist attack in France. Ridley Scott is looking to quickly bounce back from the tepid response to Alien: Covenant with a real story of his own that wrapped a mere month ago: All the Money In The World. The film follows the famous Getty kidnapping and cruel patriarch J. Paul Getty's refusal to fork out the ransom dough.

Don't expect to hear "unrecognizable" dubbed just to Gary Oldman this year for Darkest Hour - this film is going hard on selling/taunting us Kevin Spacey as the billionaire in heavy prosthetics. We'll see if this ends up being a supporting or lead actor play, but might the film have awards chances elsewhere? »

'Indian Horse': Film Review | Tiff 2017

17 September 2017 2:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Like the Richard Wagamese novel on which it is based, the drama Indian Horse combines one of Canada’s greatest national glories — the game of ice hockey — with one of the darkest chapters in its national history: the terrible goings-on at Canadian-Indian residential schools where aboriginal children were taught to be good Christians, far removed from their own culture and heritage. This is the second feature as a director from Montreal-born camera operator Stephen Campanelli, the go-to Steadicam guy on the movies of Clint Eastwood, who gets an executive producer credit here. Campanelli's cinematographer is Quebec maestro Yves Belanger »

Critic's Notebook: Harry Dean Stanton, a Zen Cowboy Who Said Everything by Saying Nothing

16 September 2017 6:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Deep in his bones, Harry Dean Stanton understood the sheer expressive power of saying nothing and doing very little. The veteran cult actor and musician, who died Friday at 91, elevated a kind of Zen minimalist performance style into high art. His bittersweet reward for this unshowy approach was a spotty screen career that took decades to blossom, but the huge groundswell of respect and goodwill he accrued served him well in his glorious autumn years. He gambled on the long game, and it finally repaid him handsomely.

Latina Who Runs Hollywood Walk of Fame Reveals The Most and Least Popular Stars

For many celebrities, it’s a lifelong dream to receive a star on the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame, which was established in 1958. The person who chooses who does–and does not–get one of these coveted plaques on the world-famous sidewalk is a diminutive Latina named Ana Martinez. She’s the vice president of media relations for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and producer of Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies.

“It’s a very unique job and this Latin girl’s doing it. It’s kind of crazy,” said the Half-Mexican and half-Peruvian VP to NBC News. “When I got married, »

Darren Aronofsky Wanted Joaquin Phoenix to Star in His R-Rated ‘Batman: Year One’

15 September 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Darren Aronofsky’s Batman: Year One is about as controversial as one might expect from the filmmaker. Warner Bros. brought in the director following the success of Pi in 1998 and the collapse of the Batman franchise with Batman & Robin. His initial pitch was an adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns with Clint Eastwood as old Batman, but Warner Bros. was more interested in an origin story, which led Aronofsky to try and adapt Miller’s Batman: Year One. However, in Aronofsky’s take, everything is boiled down to its essentials. Basically, Batman is a crazy person in hockey … »

Tiff 2017: Here’s the Winners and Losers of the Festival

15 September 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At 255 titles, the Toronto International Film Festival’s smorgasbord is 20 percent smaller than last year — and still overwhelming. A number of filmmakers took creative risks that paid off with exuberant praise, from Darren Aronofsky’s outrageous “mother!” to Guillermo del Toro’s inimitable “The Shape of Water,” but many others found themselves in the doghouse, or worse, utterly ignored.

Buyers were unhappy that there wasn’t much to choose from at this sellers’ market, because many distributors cherry-picked the more promising titles ahead of time — which is its own risk, as when The Orchard’s La riot drama “Kings” didn’t meet high expectations.

Here’s how the festival shook out.

Darren Aronofksy Mourns His Lost ‘Taxi Driver’-Inspired ‘Batman’ Pitch

15 September 2017 7:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Imagine a “Batman” film starring Clint Eastwood driving around Detroit-like Gotham City in a souped up Lincoln Continental. Now imagine it’s a Darren Aronofsky film. As amazing as that sounds, it’s not hard to see why a studio wouldn’t go for it — especially fifteen years ago. When the “Mother!” director heard about the new “Mean Streets” inspired Joker spinoff produced by Martin Scorsese, he couldn’t help but wonder what could have been.

“I think we were basically – whatever it is – 15 years too early. Because I hear the way they’re talking about the Joker movie and that’s exactly – that was my pitch. I was like: we’re going to shoot in East Detroit and East New York. We’re not building Gotham. The Batmobile – I wanted to be a Lincoln Continental with two bus engines in it,” Aronofsky told First Showing. “We were all about »

Kevin Spacey Is Nearly Unrecognizable as J. Paul Getty in First ‘All the Money in the World’ Trailer

14 September 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Get it from your father-in-law — he has all the money in the world.”

That’s the instruction from a kidnapper in the first trailer for Sony’s “All the Money in the World,” the story of the 1973 kidnap in Italy of  John Paul Getty III — the rebellious teenage grandson of oil billionaire John Paul Getty, who was reluctant to pay the $17 million ransom demanded by the kidnappers. Kevin Spacey plays Getty.

Asked by a member of the press how much he’d pay, a nearly unrecognizable Spacey responds, “Nothing.”

Michelle Williams plays the part of Gail Harris, the mother of John Paul Getty III, and Mark Wahlberg plays Getty’s adviser.

“I’m not a real Getty, I just married one,” she tells Wahlberg.

The trailer has the music to the Zombies’ 1968 hit “Time of the Season,” which includes the lyrics “What’s your name? Who’s your daddy? Is he rich like me?”

When Christopher Nolan Met Takanori Iwata: The Director Speaks at Dunkirk‘s Japanese Press Launch

14 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Contrary to popular belief, the Japanese are not totally averse to watching war movies, with Clint Eastwood’s Letters from Iwo Jima and Peter Webber’s Emperor being fairly well-received in recent years. However, those films undoubtedly owed their success to the presence of revered Japanese actors Ken Watanabe and Toshiyuki Nishida, boy-band idol Kazunari Ninomiya and the calmly authoritative Tommy Lee Jones (who is so big over here that he fronts a major coffee brand). Given that Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk offers none of the above, one wondered how the Tokyo media conference, held at the plush Roppongi Hills complex on Thursday […] »

Eddie Izzard interview: Victoria And Abdul, acting, Robin Williams and more

Eddie Izzard on his acting career, Victoria & Abdul, Clint Eastwood, Robin Williams, directing films and more...

Eddie Izzard is back on the big screen this weekend in Victoria & Abdul. It's the new film from director Stephen Frears, a sort-of follow-up to Mrs Brown that sees Dame Judi Dench playing Queen Victoria in a story that's recently been discovered about her later life. We got a chance to chat with Eddie Izzard about his role in the movie, and potentially directing...

Could you clear something up for me, as I swear I heard a hint of it in the film - did you give Bertie a slight German accent?

Maybe mentally. He did have a tapped ‘r’, because his first years there was German in it, but it was only the hint of it, I didn’t overtly push it.

I was watching your interview this morning on This Morning, »
