April Showers: Thelma & Louise

8 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

waterworks all month long... this one's from the vaults

Tonight's shower is provided by mother nature rather than traditional indoor plumbing. That's appropriate since Thelma & Louise (1991) is elemental: all wide open spaces, blazing sun, dusty earth and women as hard driving forces of nature.

While the film belongs to Susan Sarandon's Louise, Geena Davis's Thelma is the maddening/adorable one. Among her many exasperating yet endearing qualities is her uninhibited horniness for one J.D. (early Brad Pitt). In the still above, Louise has booted the caddish hitchhiker out of their car since the friends are getting hotel rooms for the night. J.D. struts away into the rain shower, fully confident that Thelma's eyes are still on him. He even kicks up a boot heel, a private little show for her, as the car drives away.

There he goes. I love watching him go.

Wrangler butts drive her nuts. »

Goodbye to All That: Tribeca Review

17 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York — In his first film as a director, Junebug screenwriter Angus MacLachlan goes back to North Carolina for the story of a man blindsided by divorce. Paul Schneider shines in the role, stumbling through a dating world that has changed since his character got hitched, thanks mostly to social media. His turn is a fine fit for the seriocomic spirit of a picture that, while less distinctive than the earlier film, should have little trouble connecting with viewers beyond the fest circuit.

Ex-Banker Turns to Famous Friends to Make Social-Justice Films

11 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Thomas Morgan’s career path began to change the day he went to his daughter’s school presentation. His transformation solidified the day he met actress Susan Sarandon.

Morgan, an investment banker, became involved after the event as his daughter and a friend were discussing a play date. “I said, well, you can go to her house or she can come to our house.” The two girls became quiet, and his daughter said: “Dad, she lives in the Walmart parking lot with her family. I can’t go to her house.”

Later, in N.Y. on business, Morgan was attending a party at a restaurant part-owned by Sarandon. Talking with a guest who turned out to be “Super Size Me” director Morgan Spurlock, he brought up the idea of a documentary on homelessness. Spurlock announced the notion to Sarandon, who said, “How do I help you?” Says Morgan: “I went home, »

April Showers: An Education

10 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

waterworks each night at 11. Here's Andrew on Carey Mulligan's breakthrough

Carey Mulligan will be back headlining a new version of Far From the Madding Crowd later this year and it's now been five years since she won the world's attention. 2009 was the year Carey grew up from youngest Bennett sister to an actress worth following. She'd previously had slight but efficient turns in Brothers and Public Enemies, and a lovely performance opposite Susan Sarandon in the unremembered The Greatest but it was with Jenny Mellor in An Education that she made us fall in love. 

The film has only recently begun and Oxford hopeful, Jenny Mellor, is making her way home from band practice. A thunderclap in the preceding scene signals bad weather ahead and we cut to:

Before Lolita; Samuel Goldwyn Films Swashbuckled by “The Last of Robin Hood”

9 April 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Filmmaker tandem Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland know a thing or two about being on opposite ends of luck. It wasn’t for a lack of trying, but after breaking out with Quinceañera at Sundance back in 2006 (it got picked up by Spc and generated good box-office numbers), the pair had difficulties setting up their sophomore feature. They got their groove back when they dug into Hollywood folklore and sifted thru silver screen legend Errol Flynn‘s timeline – the lucky actor who hit jackpot and had a life that mimicked the notion of rags to riches to rags. An example of a film that might have got lost in the abyss of films presented at Tiff last September, but that might nudge out an afterlife theatrically, The Wrap reports that Samuel Goldwyn Films have picked up The Last of Robin Hood. A fall release is expected.

Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #5: Karen Hopkins on Trusting that her Feature 'Miss Meadows' Would Happen

9 April 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Prior to "Miss Meadows," Karen Hopkins has only one directing credit under her belt. She's also appeared in some small roles and helmed the screenplay for the Susan Sarandon drama "Stepmom." Her latest film, satire "Miss Meadows," which will appear at Tribeca this year, stars Katie Holmes as a "proper lady" gone bad. Hopkins also told Indiewire that getting the film done required "touches of a wand." Tell us about yourself? I came to Hollywood from Sandusky, Ohio to work as an actress. I taught exercise classes for years and drove a lawn mower for a car until I got my first "big break." I then got cut out of three major films. My twin was studying to be a shrink and figured I made up all these scenarios of being cast then cut out up as a way of survival. My mother lovingly told me "you're a failure come home, »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Stelio Savante on Peter Greenaway’s Eisenstein, and his career

28 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

HeyUGuys recently caught up with Stelio Savante who following his lead role in the first film ever to shoot in Equatorial Guinea Where the Road Runs Out,  also has a supporting role in Peter Greenaway’s upcoming film Eisenstein in Guanajuato.

Between Greenaway and making history, we felt privileged to have an opportunity to discuss with Savante his career to date, which apparently all began thanks to some good looking girls. In an interview mixed with seriousness and humour he spoke of discovering cinema in his native South Africa, the difference between cinema in American and South African culture, working with J.J. Abrams, and the rewards of collaboration.

Why a career in acting? Was there that one inspirational moment?

Getting paid to do something that I’m passionate about… how could I refuse that? Performing plays in university… I got the bug, it bite hard, and so a journey was born. »

'Godzilla,' 'Jupiter Ascending' and 'Horrible Bosses 2' win WB's CinemaCon sneak

28 March 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - Disney had the cache of Marvel and Pixar.  20th Century Fox might brought the showmanship and, arguably, the best slate of movies.  Warner Bros., who was the last studio to present to the nation's theater owners Thursday afternoon, brought the star power. WB was the no. 1 studio domestically and internationally in 2013 and they celebrated by bringing out famous faces such as Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Melissa McCarthy, Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore and Mila Kunis to hype their individual 2014 releases.  Not much was revealed about the 2015 slate or beyond that, but Warner Bros. Head of Distribution Dan Fellman did confirm that J.K. Rowling's "Fantastic Beasts" is in the pipeline. With that in mind, here's a rundown of the major films previewed during the event. [Spoilers ahead.] "Transcendence" Director: Wally Pfister Release Date: April 18 Talent on hand: Johnny Depp pointed to Morgan Freeman and said, "This is God. »

Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood, and Drew Barrymore introduce packed Warner Bros. slate at CinemaCon

It’s not yet clear if any of the stars Warner Bros. trotted out during the last panel of the CinemaCon trade show had the star power to eclipse the giant lizard that seemed to steal the show during the studio’s presentation of Godzilla, but the studio couldn’t be faulted for trying.

On hand to present just a few films from the robust slate — which includes the musical tribute to Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, the mind-bending thriller Transcendence, and the family comedy Blended — were director Clint Eastwood, stars Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman, and Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, »
