Tavis Smiley Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

15 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tavis Smiley has what could be deemed the perfect talkshow host name — upbeat and amiable — but growing up, he was often the butt of belittling schoolyard jokes.

“When I was a kid, I hated my name,” says the Midwesterner whose childhood pipedream was to play first base for the Cincinnati Reds. “Tavis Smiley. I got teased so much. It was Travis, Tayvis and Smiley became Smelly and ‘Oh, you’re Tavis Smelly.’ So I hated it as a kid. But, lo and behold, years later you’re a TV guy and it works.”

Indeed it does. Hatched in 2004, Smiley’s eponymous PBS talker kickstarted its 11th season in January. The show, recipient of four NAACP Image Awards, has featured a wide and varied swath of high-profile guests, from Maya Angelou to Cornel West, from Ethan Hawke to James Taylor.

7 True Stories and the Autobiographical Films They Inspired

17 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

All creations are, in some way, autobiographical. As the merging of imagination and experience, at least a little bit of the creator’s self is infused in their creation. At times, it’s little more than a thematic hint, like Ethan Hawke’s discussion of his failing marriage in Before Sunset, as the actor himself went through a public break-up. It can also be the combination of memory and fantasy, like Guy Maddin’s eccentric documentary about his hometown and childhood memories, My Winnipeg. And other times, cinema becomes the therapist investigating familial turmoil, like Sarah Polley’s excellent Stories We Tell. On occasion, the film itself becomes a revealing cinematic journal, one that makes its audience witting (or unwitting) voyeurs snooping through private lives with a depth tabloids can only dream of. These films allow the filmmaker moments of introspection, revenge, and confusion that make for compelling narratives, but even more fascinating autobiographies when you know »

Richard Linklater's Boyhood is my most anticipated film of 2014 and to think we're just over a couple months away from its July 11 release makes the anticipation all that more difficult to bear.

Trailer and Teaser Poster for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood Starring Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, and Patricia Arquette

23 April 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

IFC Films has released the trailer and teaser poster for BoyhoodRichard Linklater's remarkable film follows the life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane) over the course of 12 years, dropping in to view pivotal scenes in his life from the age of 6 to 18.  Viewers also see his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), their mother Olivia (Patricia Arquette), and father Mason Sr. (Ethan Hawke) age alongside him.  No matter how the film is eventually received by critics and audiences alike, the idea behind Boyhood is a commendable one that eschews traditional schedules, casting age-appropriate actors to fill in the gaps, and even cutting-edge aging make-up.  Linklater has chosen, instead, to let the natural path of life carve its way forward for each of his actors; that alone makes this a film worth watching. Hit the jump to check out the Boyhood trailer and poster, and click here to read Matt's review from Sundance. »

Irish director Ciaran Foy signs on for Sinister 2

18 April 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Released in 2012, Sinister was an immensely effective horror movie, coming from the always reliable Blumhouse Productions, starring Ethan Hawke as a novelist investigating a strange murder that took place in his new home. Since it pocketed over $77 million in the world wide box office, off a budget of $3 million, a sequel was always on the cards. Now, the original's director, Scott Derrickson, took to Twitter to announce that the project is going ahead, and a director has been found in the form of Ciaran Foy, who was responsible for the critically acclaimed Irish horror Citadel. Nothing else is known of the project, other than Derrickson will once again write the script with co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Production is set to begin in July. Foy really showed he had a talent for the genre with Citadel, and I am excited to see what he can do with the follow-up to one »

Check Out New Images From Richard Linklater’s Boyhood

17 April 2014 9:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

New images were released today for the upcoming film Boyhood, directed by Richard Linklater. Considering that Linklater is a director known for highly experimental films, such as the rotoscoped philosophical conversation drama Waking Life, it is really saying something that Boyhood might be his most ambitious work yet.

The film stars newcomer Ellar Coltrane as an American boy, and follows his growth and maturation from age six through the end of his high school career. What is remarkable about the project, however, is that the young boy will be growing in real time, as Linklater shot the movie a small piece at a time each year for 12 consecutive years. In case you needed another reason to get excited about the project, Coltrane will have a terrific pair of supporting actors in Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, who play the boy’s divorced parents. Hawke was one of the stars of »
