Susan Sarandon attended the opening of the Democratic National Convention last night, but not as one of Hillary Clinton’s celebrity supporters. While stars like Demi Lovato and Eva Longoria took to the stage to sing Clinton’s praises (sometimes literally), Sarandon watched from the audience. And she was not pleased with what she saw.

12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Shailene Woodley Caravans Across U.S. to Democratic National Convention

25 July 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Philadelphia — The Convention-eve resignation of Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Sunday evening emphasized that this week’s party conclave in Philadelphia may not be the seamless coronation that most Democratic operatives pined for.

Embarrassing emails showed that party leaders had conspired to short-circuit the maverick campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. That led Schultz to announce, within just hours of the news breaking, that she would step down at week’s end, after more than a decade as Democratic Party chair.

Democrats now know they will not escape the kind of tendentious infighting that distracted Republicans last week in Cleveland as they nominated Donald Trump. Even before Schultz’s swift exit, thousands of Sanders supporters were ready to make sure of that. The pro-Sanders camp had planned a week of protests to guarantee that Democratic nominee-in-waiting Hillary Clinton had to at least share the stage with their anti-establishment agenda. »

Susan Sarandon, Shailene Woodley to Attend Progressive Rally Leading to DNC

23 July 2016 12:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Voters energized by Bernie Sanders’ run for president hope to keep the momentum of their movement going, though the progressive activists seemed to be uncertain on the eve of the Democratic National Convention how hard to push back against impending nominee Hillary Clinton’s more moderate views.

One group of liberal, headlined by actresses Susan Sarandon and Shailene Woodley, will attend a rally Sunday night in Philadelphia that organizers said intends to “continue our progressive trajectory by focusing on issues rather than candidates.” That evening rally at a park in the Germantown neighborhood comes a day before the convention opens and hours after another group of Sanders supporters plan to meet to convey a much more contentious message, including opposition to Clinton’s vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine.

Among the issues important to the Sarandon/Woodley contingent: instituting single-payer health care, banning fracking, stopping the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership and expanding »

Movie Poster of the Week: “Atlantic City” and the Letter Forms of Gerard Huerta

15 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

One of my favorite contemporary designers is Jessica Hische, a lettering artist whose best known movie poster work is her typeface design for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. Hische is a prodigiously talented and endlessly inventive artist who has brought renewed recognition to the art of lettering and whose covers for Barnes and Noble Classics and Penguin Drop Caps are gorgeous. I mention this because I recently discovered the poster work of another extraordinary letterform artist from an earlier era, via this magnificent poster for Louis Malle’s Atlantic City.Gerard Huerta is a letterform and logo designer who got his start with CBS Records in the early 70s where he created album covers and logos for Boston, Ted Nugent, Rick Derringer, Bob Dylan and many others. His greatest claim to fame might be that he forged the “look” of heavy metal typography with his logo for Blue Öyster Cult »
