BAFTA Awards: ‘The Revenant’ Wins Best Film, Actor, Director (Full List)

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant” came up trumps at the 69th British Academy Film Awards on Sunday night, nabbing five prizes including best film, director and leading actor.

George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” left the field with four BAFTAs – all in the more technical fields – including costume design, production design, make up and hair and editing.

The Martian,” “The Danish Girl,” “Carol” and “Ex-Machina” all left empty-handed this year.

This year’s ceremony was a marked change for Inarritu compared to last year’s awards: in 2015, his pic “Birdman,” was up for 10 nominations but only came away with one win for best cinematography, given to Emmanuel Lubezki.

The glitterati were in full force at London’s Royal Opera House on Valentine’s Day:  Tom Cruise awarded “The Revenant” with the best film prize while Leonardo DiCaprio’s win for best actor in the film was met with »

HBO’s Vinyl – Pilot Review

5 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

HBO’s Vinyl: Pilot episode. Reviewed by Dan Bullock, February 2016.

Created by Rich Cohen, Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter, Vinyl is the latest drama from HBO with a core that belts out a rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack, so if you’re not excited by the fervent throws of that era, then it may take you longer to put the metaphorical needle into the groove but if you’ve full-hearted love for music and film, then expect a very special experience.

This 2-hour opener is sold as a pilot episode, and could be a film within itself, which only just begins to explore the intoxicating and electrifying world of a hugely changing music and cultural scene in 1970s. Directed by Martin Scorsese, the small screen is an ample recreation stage as we focus on the Bobby Cannavale‘s Richie Finestra, the owner of American Century Records, whose love »

Vinyl's Olivia Wilde: 'I ordered Mick Jagger out of my chair'

6 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

She cut her teeth on The Oc. Now Olivia Wilde’s pulling on her kaftan to star in Vinyl, Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger’s TV drama set in the cocaine-fuelled world of the 1970s music business

It’s hard to imagine anyone saying no to Martin Scorsese. But Olivia Wilde almost did. The 31-year-old actor was approached about a part in Vinyl, the hotly anticipated TV drama set in the coke-fuelled world of the music business in 1970s New York. Given that the show is directed by Scorsese and produced by Mick Jagger, most actors would jump at the offer, but Wilde had doubts.

“I was excited to get the call but then I asked, ‘What’s the role?’ They said she’s the main character’s wife.” Wilde breaks off and grins. “I was like, ‘Well, if you want me to play the long-suffering housewife, then you need to go to someone else. »

‘Vinyl’ Review: Mick Jagger-Martin Scorsese Music Drama Rocks Hard

7 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sex, drugs, rock and roll — three tried and true components to telling a classic story of debauchery and downfall, and three things HBO’s new entry “Vinyl” relies heavily on. Luckily it works — to a point. The series, which had a long gestational period in development, brings star power both in front and behind the scenes. Showrunner Terence Winter and director Martin Scorsese are back together following their “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” days, with Mick Jagger on board as an executive producer. In front of the camera Bobby Cannavale lends leading man credit as record »

Ray Romano Got Cast In 'Vinyl' Because Martin Scorsese Had Never Heard Of 'Everybody Loves Raymond'

10 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Warning, Ray Romano fans: If you fell for the actor based on his family-friendly work on broadcast TV, his newest role is... well, pretty different. As record executive Zak Yankovich, Romano misbehaves in all the ways you might expect in a Martin Scorsese project. While the opportunity was one he leapt at, it also represented a major change from his past work. Read More: Watch: Here's Martin Scorsese's Best Robert De Niro Impersonation (Sort Of) When Indiewire sat down with him at the TCA Winter Press Tour, Romano was one cool cucumber, but he spoke frankly about auditioning for the role, why he was so excited to prove his chops in a new, exciting direction and when he realized that "this show is too cool for me." An edited transcript follows. How did this come into your life? My agent sent the script. I was on "Parenthood" — that's all »

Berlin: Gaumont Embarks On ‘Journey Through French Cinema’ (Exclusive)

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin – Gaumont has acquired international sales rights to vet helmer Bertrand Tavernier’s “A Journey Through French Cinema,” a feature documentary charting the history of French cinema from the 1930s through to the early 1970s.

Tavernier, who is president of Lyon’s Lumiere festival along with Cannes fest’s artistic director Thierry Fremaux, said Martin Scorsese’s “Personal Journey through American Movies” and “My Voyage to Italian Cinema” inspired him to make “A Journey Through French Cinema.” Through the doc, Tavernier will also shed light on the political and historical context of certain movies as well as share anecdotes about some directors.

Delving into French classics, the documentary includes interviews and footage from Jean Renoir, Claude Sautet, Jean-Luc Godard, Louis Malle, Francois Truffaut and Jacques Becker.

The sixth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" doesn't air until April 24th, and so far there's been no real footage from any of it beyond one or two shots in the network's 2016 promo. That is all about to change on Sunday it seems.

HBO used Twitter to announce that the first trailer for the new season will screen this Sunday, just ahead of the series premiere of the Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese-produced series "Vinyl". Check out the 'tease' of that teaser in the tweet below.

Review: 'Vinyl' is Like 'Mad Men' on Drugs, But Do We Need Another Don Draper Story?

13 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The premiere episode of Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter's first project together since "Boardwalk Empire" isn't even an episode. It's a movie. The two-hour premiere of "Vinyl," the duo's hard-cutting, deliberately jarring and louder than loud HBO music drama, features such elaborate filmmaking techniques it's hard to consider the pilot merely an introduction to what could be a 100-hour series. Scenes are bookended by transitionary shots of various artists crooning rhythmic melodies. Random signifiers of the era pop up to set the mood, like a close-up on a cigarette lighter catching fire followed by hundreds of lights filling a crowded audience. Shaking zooms and quick cuts provide an edge — an attitude — for every inch of the frame, while rock 'n roll fills the would-be quiet moments and often overwhelms scenes traditionally built to run without such boisterous accompaniment.  And then there are the Martin Scorsese trademarks. Our story begins at the. »

Watch: 11-Minute Video Essay Explores How ‘Reservoir Dogs’ Pays Homage To 'City On Fire'

12 February 2016 12:08 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s sometimes hard to believe that we’re already two decades and eight films into the working life of Quentin Tarantino. Like Martin Scorsese, Tarantino is a proud cinephile and film obsessive, and his knowledge of film and film history is likely one the best in the industry today. What can’t be argued, though, is the layering, homage, and depth that Qt has worked into each of his films, even his very first, “Reservoir Dogs.” Read More: What’s Left? Quentin Tarantino Talks The Remaining Movies He Could Make Before Retirement To help us sort through all of the homage and references in “Reservoir Dogs,” The Film Theorists have put together a new video essay, “Reservoir Dogs: Stolen Or Homage,” another exciting entry in the “Frame By Frame” series that breaks down scenes and movies to their beautiful bare bone.

Brazil’s Rt Features Give U.S. Independent Films a Boost

12 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To find one of the biggest impact players on the American indie scene, you have to go to Sao Paulo.

Rodrigo Teixeira’s Brazil-based Rt Features has produced Sundance hits “Indignation” by director James Schamus and “Little Men” by Ira Sachs, and heading to Berlin, it’s also behind James Gray’s sci-fier “To the Stars,” and has inked a joint production venture with Martin Scorsese.

Teixeira’s track record is extraordinary for any producer, no matter the nationality: Rt has developed work with Noah Baumbach (“Frances Ha,” “Mistress America”), Kelly Reichardt (“Night Moves”), Sachs (“Love Is Strange”), Robert Eggers (2015 Sundance award-winner “The Witch”) and Gaspar Noe (Cannes competition player “Love”). The company is also firing up movies from a new generation of Brazilian directors.

Teixeira says co-production deals have infused money into the market, and afforded independent filmmakers the freedom to create their own stories.

12 February 2016 9:54 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This weekend, HBO is getting very rock 'n roll, with the two-hour, Martin Scorsese-directed season premiere of "Vinyl." The show takes viewers into the gritty realm of the 1970s music industry, following a record label honcho who makes his way through the sex and drug-riddled world, searching for the next big sound. The cast for this one is impressive, featuring Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Juno Temple, James Jagger, and many more. It's been a long journey, with the show's executive producer and writer Terence Winter sharing that the project has been brewing for over a decade.

Vinyl Season 1 Review

11 February 2016 2:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

There’s a degree of déjà vu going into Vinyl, HBO’s latest crack at grown-up entertainment, this time focused on the drugged-up, hazy age of the early-’70s record industry in New York City. The network, not one to sit idly by and lazily jump on a trend bandwagon, has a pantheon of such forward-thinking, original programming that something like Vinyl feels solely disappointing upon first blush for the simple fact that – unlike its trendsetting, far-out characters – it’s somewhat content to be mainstream.

Vinyl has its roots in the classic anti-hero television serial, middle-finger opening monologue and all, but for once such an ode to a story full of “lost brain cells, self-aggrandizement, and maybe a little bullshit,” as Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) himself puts it, feels appropriately crude, thanks to the grungy 70’s backdrop. It’s a show that has »

The 25 Best TV Dramas Since 'The Sopranos'

10 February 2016 11:20 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This coming Sunday sees what might be one of the biggest event's of the early 2016 TV season — the arrival of HBO’s big new drama “Vinyl.” The show, which focuses on the record industry in the early 1970s and stars Bobby Cannavale, Juno Temple, Ray Romano and more, marks the cable network’s second collaboration with director Martin Scorsese (who produces the show with Mick Jagger, and who directs the two-hour pilot), after “Boardwalk Empire.” The show was co-created with Terence Winter, who was one of the key writers on “The Sopranos,” which reinvented television drama. Others paved the way for it — “NYPD Blue,” “Homicide: Life On The Street,” and HBO’s first drama series “Oz.” But “The Sopranos” was the one that changed everything, dominating pop culture, drawing huge ratings and massive critical acclaim, and helping to prove that the small screen could be home for truly groundbreaking work »

Vinyl's fatal flaws: nostalgia overload and antihero dependency

10 February 2016 10:43 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

HBO’s new show has a stunning opening, but it’s ultimately a middle-aged white man’s idea of the glory days – and it desperately wants you to think it’s cool

The opening scene of Vinyl, the new HBO show about the record industry in the 70s, is absolutely perfect. Label owner Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) does a few bumps of coke and then stumbles in and sees the New York Dolls, in their best makeup and finery, jamming out Personality Crisis. The crowd is hip and raucous, the band is an absolute spectacle, and director Martin Scorsese captures the action perfectly, with the swoosh of hair and fringed jackets slowed down in a gorgeous whirl. It’s enough to make you want to be there, right in that moment, and never leave. That is exactly the problem with Vinyl.
