Steven Soderberg’s ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ series Mosaic gets a poster and trailer

7 October 2017 8:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO has released a poster and trailer for Steven Soderbergh and Ed Soloman’s upcoming interactive ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ series Mosaic which stars Sharon Stone, Garrett Hedlund, Frederick Weller, Beau Bridges, Paul Reubens, Jennifer Ferrin, Devin Ratray, Michael Cerveris, James Ransone, Jeremy Bobb, and Maya Kazan; take a look below…

Three years in the making, the Mosaic app allows viewers to choose what point-of-view from which to follow the story and to, in effect, build their own experience from the material Soderbergh and Solomon created. The choices one makes build upon one another, enabling multiple tellings of the story from different perspectives and, sometimes, with different conclusions. Viewers will be able to see how their own versions of the story on the app ultimately compare to Soderbergh’s six-part linear narrative in January.

Mosaic will clock in at around seven-and-a-half hours in total, and will be available via a free app in November, »

‘Mosaic’: Steven Soderbergh Unveils the Three-Year Process of Making His 7-Hour HBO Experiment

6 October 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Today at a Future of Storytelling event in Staten Island, New York, director Steven Soderbergh unveiled “Mosaic,” his new 7-hour interactive, branching narrative that he has been working on for three years. The 7-hour interactive version will be available the first week of November via the “Mosaic” App.  A six one-hour traditional limit series version of the show will be available on HBO Go and Now in January.

In the hour-long talk with film critic Elvis Mitchell, Soderbergh previewed how audiences will experience and interact with the narrative and his process for creating a form he believes will bring audiences a viewing experience that is similar to reading a novel. Here’s what we learned.

How It Works

Projecting off his iPad, Soderbergh demonstrated how viewers will interact with the story on their mobile or Ott streaming device. The story is split up into 14 “nodes,” which are similar to episodes. »

Top 5 Hollywood Casino Performances of All-Time

2 October 2017 4:26 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Casino Hollywood – Glitz, Glamour, & Drama

A high-stakes bet gone wrong. A crooked casino boss. A pretty girl, excessive smoking, and some booze.

These are all the tell-tale signs of a Hollywood casino movie. And there’s no shortage of beloved films that depict the reality of casinos, albeit over-the-top at times.

Most people only frequent the casinos from time to time – or hardly at all. But we love the world that Hollywood creates around a casino.

We love the glitz and the glamour. We love the adrenaline and the thrills and the danger. Many of us have fantasized about living a deviant lifestyle at some point or another. Casino films give us that 90-minute escape into a world of money, risk, and living on-the-edge.

And there were some performances in casino movies that were so unforgettable that we go back to relive the excitement again and again.

Hugh Hefner, a Social Force in America, Built Empire on Babes, Boobs, Dies

28 September 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Hugh Hefner, a pioneer of the sexual revolution, who helped America break out of the turgid social restrictions of the 1950s and became a master of brand extension, has died at 91. Hefner was radical for his time when he launched his iconic Playboy magazine in 1953 using 8,000 in borrowed money. The magazine tried to remain relevant by publishing photo spreads of contemporary celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss, Madonna, Pamela Anderson, Sharon Stone, Naomi Campbell and Lindsay Lohan. ...Read More »

Rip Hugh Hefner: 11 Hollywood Stars Who Stripped Down for Playboy (Photos)

27 September 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kim Basinger, Jenny McCarthy, Charlize Theron, Madonna, Lindsay Lohan and Sharon Stone are just a few of the actresses who posed for the men’s magazine Playboy before it abandoned full nudity — and then quickly brought it back. In fact, the magazine became famous in large part by featuring Marilyn Monroe when she was one of the most famous, glamorous and celebrated of Hollywood stars. It’s clear Hugh Hefner has always had a close relationship with Hollywood — inviting both luminaries (and not-so-luminary celebrities) to visit his mansion. He has sold it, but continues to live there. Also Read: Bill Cosby's. »

Hugh Hefner, Playboy Founder, Dies at 91

27 September 2017 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner died on Wednesday at the Playboy Mansion in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of West Los Angeles. He was 91.

The media mogul’s influence went far beyond publishing — he created the sexual revolution nearly single-handedly (with some help from the advent of the birth control pill and the rise of feminism).

After starting the status quo-shattering Playboy magazine in 1953, Hefner went on to launch TV and film companies, finance documentaries, and preside over the Hollywood social scene from his bubbling Jacuzzi at the mansion, a frequent location for industry events. The mansion, which had became somewhat run-down, was sold in 2016, but the terms of the sale specified that he was allowed to live there until his death.

He is survived by his wife, Crystal, and four grown children: Christie, who served as CEO of Playboy Enterprise for more than 20 years, David, Marston, and Cooper, who currently serves as Chief Creative Officer at the »

Scorsese’s classic Casino based on real-life events

26 September 2017 8:27 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Martin Scorsese’s 1995 film Casino was a fantastic example of the American’s screenwriting and film-making abilities.

With the help of Nicholas Pileggi, and inspired by Pileggi’s book, Casino does a brilliant job of transferring the true story of Frank Rosenthal to film.

In the movie, Rosenthal is represented by the character Sam Rothstein, played by Robert De Niro, who (according to the man himself) is about a 7/10 for accuracy.

In real life, Rosenthal was a Las Vegas casino executive and organised crime associate in the 1970s and the film is based around him.

Joe Pesci’s character, Nicky Santoro, is based on real-life mobster and Rosenthal’s childhood friend, Anthony Spilotro, who met a similarly grisly fate to his onscreen counterpart.

Pesci’s murder in the film is also based on real-life events and he and his brother Michael disappeared June 14, 1986 and their bodies were not found for more than a week later, »

‘The Disaster Artist’ Trailer is Something You Never Thought You Needed

23 September 2017 5:09 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

The Franco brothers (James and Dave) are finally working together in a film and this one is an interesting one. The Disaster Artist is a biography “dramedy” based on the true story of The Room filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and about the making of the questionable film. This all may sound confusing or interesting but hopefully this new trailer (posted below) will help you out with coming to a conclusion.

Here is a side by side of Franco and Wiseau.

Ironically enough, James Franco wrote, directed and starred in the film much like Tommy Wiseau did with The Room. The film also has a huge cast made up of some very notable names like Alison Brie, Seth Rogen, Judd Apatow, Kristen Bell, Kate Upton, Zac Efron, Lizzy Caplan, Bryan Cranston, Adam Scott, Sharon Stone, Zach Braff, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Hannibal Buress and even Star Wars director J.J. Abrams. Tommy Wiseau will also »

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago Movie

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieDave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine9/20/2017 10:00:00 Am

Dave Franco sits on a metal chair in a stripped-down Beverly Hills hotel room looking as happy as he can be. All that stuff you read about the actor’s infectious smile being the most winning in the business? Not fake news.

You won’t actually get to see that gregarious grin in Franco’s latest movie, however. In The Lego Ninjago Movie he merely provides the voice of animated brick boy Lloyd, a troubled teen who leads a squad of ninjas against the evil Garmadon who wants to destroy their ancient/modern/futuristic island city.

But even though you won’t get a gander at the 32-year-old star of Neighbors, 21 Jump Street and Now You See Me in the animated feature, »
