HBO and Starbucks to Salute Veterans with Concert Starring Eminem, Rihanna, Carrie Underwood & More

35 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO and Starbucks announced an all-star concert to honor America’s veterans and their families, which will be presented live on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

The “Concert for Valor,” which will be held on the National Mall in Washington D.C.,  will feature Eminem, Jamie Foxx, Dave Grohl, Metallica, John Oliver, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band, as well as special appearances by Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, among others.

HBO will offer its affiliates the opportunity to open the signal, allowing nonsubscribers to view the special to broaden the audience, as it did with its “Comic Relief” specials.

The live event will be executive-produced by Gary Goetzman, Tom Hanks and Joel Gallen, who will also direct.

The idea came from the two companies’ CEOs, who wanted to recognize the heroism of the active people in the military, and raise awareness of the value veterans have brought to society. »

Will 'The Equalizer's success pressure Denzel into Neeson Season?

2 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It was a good run, Liam Neeson. The 62-year-old who was Oskar Schindler and Alfred Kinsey spent the last seven years kicking the crap out of much younger bad guys in bone-crushing B-movies, best epitomized by the Taken films. But as of this past weekend, there’s a new sheriff in town. Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington, one of the biggest movie stars of the past 25 years, and almost always, the coolest guy in the room, delivered his 12th No. 1 film, The Equalizer.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), The Equalizer is a Neeson-ized adaptation of the 1980s CBS detective »

Steven Spielberg's Cinematographer Says Indiana Jones 5 is His Next Film

7 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski works on about one film per year and has collaborated with Steven Spielberg on over a dozen films, including "Schindler's List," "War of the Worlds," "Munich," "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and "Lincoln." He recently completed work on Robert Downey Jr's "The Judge" and is already planning something for 2015. In an interview with Variety, he revealed that his next movie will be a re-teaming with Spielberg for "Indiana Jones 5." We've heard of lots of hints that "Indiana Jones 5" is moving forward, but mostly from crew members and leaked schedules. But now that Kaminski has confirmed the project, it's only a matter of time before filming begins. »

First Time Directors: A ‘Life After Beth’ Feature

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

For a first time director, your debut film can either make or break your film career, which is not to say that you could become the next Steven Spielberg on the first try, but it helps to be noticed for all the right reasons instead of the wrong. And one thing Jeff Baena cannot be accused of is being boring in his directorial debut, Life After Beth (in cinemas now). Telling the story of a young couple, Zach and Beth are granted a second chance at their relationship when Beth seemingly comes back from the dead. Baena does away with all of that brooding vampire stuff, giving audiences a one-way ticket into a relationship headed straight for the grave…again. So to celebrate the release of Life After Beth we have put together just a few of our favourite first time directors.

Janusz Kaminski's next film: Indiana Jones 5?

12 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski's next film is apparently going to be Indiana Jones 5. That's what it says here...

Yep, we know the rule too. If you read a news story and it has a question mark in it, then chances are it's not something that's likely to happen. But bear with us on this.

At some point in the future, another Indiana Jones film will happen. It seems fairly certain, given that Disney paid extra to pay the theatrical rights to the series from Paramount, and there are occasional murmurings too that a new movie is on the horizon. Harrison Ford for one has always refused to rule out one last hurrah.

Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, a long-time Steven Spielberg collaborator, is part of a new online course that Variety has put together for aspiring filmmakers. As such, he'll be one of the people presenting a bunch of online instructional videos. »

Directors' Trademarks: David Fincher

17 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of Gone Girl this week, let’s examine the trademark style and calling signs of David Fincher as director.

Fincher’s love for film started at an early age, when, like Steven Spielberg, he made home movies with an 8mm camera. He was able to translate this love for film into a career. In the 1980’s he worked for several production companies, including Industrial Light and Magic. Later he joined Propaganda Films and began to direct music videos and commercials. Propaganda Films was also a starting point for directors such as Michael Bay, Spike Jonze, Gore Verbinski, Alex Proyas, and Zach Snyder. All of these directors, understandably, have a focus on visuals, and David Fincher is no exception. 

His feature debut was Alien 3 »

First Look: Bradley Cooper In Clint Eastwood’s 'American Sniper'

19 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Oscar narrative always gets a little twisted in the fall: Films like the “The Imitation Game" or "The Theory Of Everything" benefit from from early and silly “seal the deal” premonitions, but in fact, the awards arms race usually doesn’t being in earnest until later in the year. We recently looked at 10 Films We Haven’t Yet Seen That May Be Serious Oscar Contenders and on that list is Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” starring Bradley Cooper. Cooper’s passion project see him produce as well as act, and Steven Spielberg was once attached to direct. Cooper optioned the novel “American Sniper” by Navy Seal Chris Kyle. And the two spoke only once: Kyle was was killed in 2013 by a troubled Marine veteran at a shooting range (the trial for his murder is still ongoing). "Thank God I got to talk to him once on the phone,'' Cooper, »

First American Sniper Images Reveal a Bulky Bradley Cooper in Clint Eastwood’s Military Drama

19 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first American Sniper images for director Clint Eastwood’s upcoming drama have been released online.  The film stars Bradley Cooper as U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, who served four tours in Iraq and quickly became the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.  His reputation crossed enemy lines, making him a prime target for the insurgency, and when he returned home to his wife and kids, he struggled to leave the war behind.  These images give us our first look at a transformed Cooper, who put on 40 pounds of muscle to portray Kyle.  Steven Spielberg was originally set to direct the film before bowing out, and it would've marked interesting territory for the filmmaker.  Regardless, Cooper (who is also the film's producer) has been incredibly passionate about telling Kyle's story, even acquiring the rights to his autobiography before his death, and he tells USA Today that the »

Updated: So Maybe 'Indiana Jones 5' is Happeningc

22 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over at Slashfilm they noticed something of a throwaway line in a recent article at Variety discussing the new collaborative online project from cinematographers Janusz Kaminski (Lincoln), Phedon Papamichael (Nebraska) and Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight Rises) in which the trio will offer a series of online instructional videos for aspiring filmmakers at Advanced Filmmaking. The line has to do with Kaminski, which goes as follows: Since then, Kaminski has made more than a dozen films with Steven Spielberg, earning two Oscars along the way. His credits include Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly. His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie. Wait, whatc His next projectc Kaminski previously worked on The Judge, which hits theaters on October 10 (my review) and is now working on Spielberg's Untitled Cold War thriller (which is going by St. James Place on set, but that is not »

Which new fall show will be canceled first?

22 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

No network or producer wants their show to be the first voted off the broadcast prime-time island. Sure most new series attempts fail, but being the very first to get booted in the fall season is a special kind of shame; it usually means that critic and viewer rejection was swift and overwhelming.

Figuring out which will get axed first can be tricky. It’s not just about which has the lowest ratings, or is the least liked by critics or viewers, but other factors: How many episodes have aired? How strong is the competition? How did that time slot »

Indiana Jones 5 Has a Cinematographer

22 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Disney and Lucasfilm are preparing to move forward with a fifth Indiana Jones film. We knew it would eventually happen, and they are getting closer to making it a reality. It seems the studio has already hired a cinematographer to shoot the film, and that cinematographer's name is Janusz Kaminski. He has made several films with director Steven Spielberg.

Variety recently posted an article about an online filmmaking course being offered by cinematographers, and this short little paragraph was thrown in there: 

"Since then, Kaminski has made more than a dozen films with Steven Spielberg, earning two Oscars along the way. His credits include Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly. His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie."

It's really no surprise that Kaminski will be working on Indiana Jones 5, but the fact that it will be his next project is very interesting. »

Is Indiana Jones 5 cinematographer Janusz Kaminski’s next project?

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The folks over at /Film have discovered an interesting new piece of the Indiana Jones 5 puzzle, that points back to cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, who’s worked with Steven Spielberg on a handful of films including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Schindler’s List, War of the Worlds,  Catch Me If You Can, Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan among others.

Variety first posted an article titled Top Cinematographers Offer Online Course on Filmmaking, that concluded this little nugget of info about Kaminski…

“Since then, Kaminski has made more than a dozen films with Steven Spielberg, earning two Oscars along the way. His credits include Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly. His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie.”

Is Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski's Next Project 'Indiana Jones 5'?

23 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, here's something that's interesting and a little bit flimsy all at the same time. Ever since Disney picked up the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount Pictures to complete their acquisition of properties from Lucasfilm, there have been rumors of both continuing the adventure with Harrison Ford or maybe rebooting the franchise with someone like Bradley Cooper. Neither option has proven to have any solid development, but there's a curious mention of Indiana Jones 5 in a Variety article (via SlashFilm) that gives a crash course in cinematography from some of the top names in the business, and one was Janusz Kaminski. For those who don't know, Janusz Kaminski is a frequent collaborator of director Steven Spielberg, having been director of photography for many of his films (Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List landed him Oscars for his work). And in the aforementioned article, there's this little excerpt: Since then, »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

23 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

First Images Of Bradley Cooper In American Sniper

1 October 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

American Sniper has been something of a passion project for Bradley Cooper. He initially had Steven Spielberg attached to direct, but when our former editor passed, Clint Eastwood took on the job. The film is set for release here early next year and the first images have arrived via USA Today. Jason Hall adapted Navy Seal Chris Kyle’s book, subtitled The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In Us Military. That recorded Kyle’s career as a Texas-born shooter who notched the highest number of recorded kills for an American. But his dedication to his sights and his Seal mates has an impact on his relationship with his wife (Sienna Miller). And in a tragic twist, Kyle was killed at a shooting range by the traumatised fellow veteran who he and a friend were helping post-military service."Thank God I got to talk to him once on the phone, »

Watch: Final 'Interstellar' Trailer & Nolan Compares it to 'Close Encounters', 'Right Stuff' and '2001'

1 October 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"It's not straight action and it's not straight thriller," director Christopher Nolan told Empire when discussing the tone of his new movie Interstellar. "I do liken it to the blockbusters I grew up with as a kid. A lot of them by Steven Spielberg. I don't like talking about Spielberg too much because he was the director on the project before me and I don't want to keep coming back to that, but the truth is, there's a great spirit to films like Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Jaws that I really wanted to try and capture, because I haven't seen it in a very long time." These are the kinds of words I love hearing, particularly that "I haven't seen it in a very long time" bit as Nolan recognizes the change in the cinematic landscape and wants to bring audiences closer to what he experienced with movies when he was younger. »

The Noteworthy: B&W "Raiders", Erice to Hellman, "Hollywood" by Don Bachardy

1 October 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

In his continually eccentric series of extracurricular activities, Steven Soderbergh has posted a black and white version of Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark. Here's what he has to say about why:

"So I want you to watch this movie and think only about staging, how the shots are built and laid out, what the rules of movement are, what the cutting patterns are. See if you can reproduce the thought process that resulted in these choices by asking yourself: why was each shot—whether short or long—held for that exact length of time and placed in that order? Sounds like fun, right? It actually is. To me. Oh, and I’ve removed all sound and color from the film, apart from a score designed to aid you in your quest to just study the visual staging aspect. Wait, What? How Could You Do This? Well, I »
