Tech Support: Period and fantasy do battle for Best Costume Design

3 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Clothes don't make the man?" That rule certainly doesn't hold true in the movies. Dress can say a lot about characters, their class, their self-image, their self-consciousness, the period and place in which they live, the story they're living and how a director wishes an audience to perceive them. Fortunately, the Academy's Costume Design branch recognizes this, as it consistently proves itself to be one of the most original sects of the organization, not overtly swayed by a film's overall perception. Every year, films that are critically maligned and/or have no other nominations tend to score here and the overall state of the Best Picture race tends to play only a peripheral role. Nevertheless, trends can be noted. Period pieces almost always take a majority of the nominations, frequently all five. Glamor is also awarded frequently. There are also great designers (such as Sandy Powell, Milena Canonero and Colleen Atwood »

New Pee-Wee Herman Movie Set to Begin Filming In February 2015

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

Paul Reubens was on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and announced there will be a new Pee-Wee Herman movie with Judd Apatow producing. Reubens says an official announcement is about a week away, but a director has been hired and they will begin filming in February for what will most likely end up being an early 2016 release. This is a film that's been discussed for some time now with Reubens discussing the project way back in 2011 with the Hollywood Reporter saying: Paul Rust ("Arrested Development") and I just turned in a draft to Judd last week. He's bringing such an interesting side to it. He's constantly having us talk about and address the emotional core of Pee-wee Herman. It's adding a dimension I never had before. Judd, if you're reading this, I think it's ready to green light! The last full-fledged Pee-Wee movie was 1988's Big Top Pee-wee, which »

Superman Lives Would've Had Clark Kent & Lois Lane In Couples Therapy

3 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There is no doubt that Jon Schnepp's Kickstarter-funded documentary, "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?" has created some new interest in Tim Burton's Superman Lives. Enough time has passed that former cast and crew members have felt more comfortable discussing it. At the moment, Dan Gilroy, who was the last screenwriter to work on the Superman Lives script, is promoting his new film Nightcrawler and the press aked about Tim Burton's infamous film. "Well I came in after Kevin Smith and Wesley Strick had written drafts. I was very much taken by Tim's approach, which was that Kal-El was not told by Jor-El, before he got put in the little spaceship, who he was or where he came from. So poor little Kal-El, when he winds up on earth, he has no freaking idea where he came from. His biggest fear is that he's an alien. »

BAFTA/La’s Britannias Confer Honors With a British Accent

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

When Albert Finney scored a supporting actor nomination for “Erin Brockovich” in 2000, the conventional wisdom was that the Oscar was his to lose. Yet Benicio del Toro walked off with the prize for “Traffic.”

Many in Hollywood chalked it down to Finney not being around to campaign, but there were many more who are aware of that British preference not to push themselves forward. Plus, says Perry Simon, g.m. of BBC America, “Many of these actors live in the U.K. and don’t have proximity” to L.A.-based campaign stops. With year-round events, BAFTA/La tries to bridge the gap between London and Los Angeles.

“BAFTA’s position is to help level the playing field, make sure Brit players are available,” BAFTA/La topper Nigel Daly says. “We hesitate to promote. BAFTA’s commitment is to screen every contender, Brit or non-Brit, with a whole series of screenings. »

Paul Reubens confirms it: Pee-wee Herman is returning to the big screen

7 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Pee-wee's Big Adventure isn't over just yet: Paul Reubens went on The Tonight Show Wednesday evening and confirmed another Pee-wee movie is in the works. Reubens starred as the lovably weird Pee-wee Herman in the 1986 movie, Tim Burton's first. He went on to reprise the role in Pee-wee's Playhouse, a TV series that ran from 1986 to 1990 and featured appearances by now-famous actors like Black-ish's Laurence Fishburne and Orange is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne. But now, he's returning to the big screen. While it was already announced years ago that there would be another Pee-wee movie, there »

Writer-Director Dan Gilroy Talks Nightcrawler, Deleted Scenes, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Weight Loss, Tim Burton’s Superman Lives, and More

29 October 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my favorite movies of 2014 is opening this weekend: writer-director Dan Gilroy's debut feature, Nightcrawler.  In the film, Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a guy desperate to score a job.  While on the hunt, Lou stumbles across a “nightcrawler,” someone who captures footage of fires, murders and all sorts of chaos to sell to new stations and Lou comes to the conclusion that the gig is perfect for him.  While I've seen Gyllenhaal deliver some great performances End of Watch, Prisoners, Zodiac and Brokeback Mountain, his work in Nightcrawler takes him to the next level.  It's easily one of my favorite performances of the year and absolutely worth a full price ticket to see this weekend when the film opens.  For more on the film, read Matt's glowing review or watch the red band trailer. During my exclusive video interview with Dan Gilroy he talked about casting Gyllenhaal, »

Weekly reviews: Gotham: S1E1 - Pilot

28 October 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

A few thoughts before my weekly round up...

Before I sit and watch this first episode of Gotham, I am forced to consider what it could be, what could happen, what shape it might take.

You see, first and foremost...I am a Batman fan. To me, Batman will always be the epitome of the vigilante: I see his struggle not as an addendum to the law, not as a political statement, or even a psychosis waiting to be diagnosed. Instead I see one man's struggle to find peace with a world with which he empathises. Through the personal experience of childhood trauma he can see through the eyes of others and in him burns a desire to correct those injustices because he can.

Batman's purpose is political only through its apolitical nature: In Alan Moore's and David Lloyd's V for Vendetta, V is lauded for saying: »

‘Mr. Turner’ Could Lead Timothy Spall to An Oscar Nomination

28 October 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Timothy Spall and director Mike Leigh have worked together on five different films, including Secrets & Lies (1996), which resulted in Leigh’s first Oscar nomination, and Topsy-Turvy (1999). Leigh has received seven Oscar nominations since 1997, but Spall has never received recognition from the Academy. That could change this year with Leigh’s Mr. Turner, which features Spall as the British landscape painter J.M.W. Turner. The film has been praised and Spall’s portrayal of the obsessive painter garnered him the best actor award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, which makes him the latest character actor to get a boost from a Leigh film.

Spall’s Mr. Turner co-star, Lesley Manville, has worked with Leigh for multiple films and received a BAFTA nomination for Another Year (2010). Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Brenda Blethyn, Spall’s co-stars in Secrets & Lies, both received Oscar nominations for their roles in the film. »

Natasha Lyonne Replaces Michael Keaton in ‘Beetlejuice 2' Funny or Die Spoof (Video)

28 October 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The sequel to 1988's hit fright flick “Beetlejuice,” is currently searching for investors. Too bad it's Barry Burton, not Tim Burton, who is helming the project. See photos: Halloween in Hollywood Costume Contest — You Be the Judge! In a new Funny or Die video, “Orange is the New Black” actress Natasha Lyonne has been tapped to replace Michael Keaton as the star of the film. The fake and befuddled Burton explains: “She's the fiery fucking redhead on the prison sex movie ‘Orange is the New Jack.’ Everybody loves her.” Lyonne dresses in the full costume and makeup as the original movie ghost, »

Oscars: ‘Gone Girl’ Highlights Year’s Bleak View of Married Life

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

If there’s a reason “Gone Girl” has emerged as a key movie of the moment, it’s because David Fincher’s thriller effectively doubles as a cautionary satire about the horrors of heterosexual commitment — “the date-night movie of the decade for couples who dream of destroying one another,” in the words of Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers. Serving up a particularly bleak vision of domestic hell (call it “The Five-Year Itch”), the film excavates more layers of deception, desperation, resentment and homicidal rage than you’d think could exist between two people who were once in love, all in service of an acridly funny punchline: “That’s marriage.”

But is it really? For better or worse, richer or poorer, the venerable but battered institution of marriage remains an inexhaustible wellspring of drama, comedy and everything in between. And “Gone Girl,” for all its cultural and commercial primacy, should hardly »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice To Feature Two Batmobiles And Armored Batsuit?

28 October 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For fans of The Caped Crusader, Bruce Wayne’s trusty vehicular companion is an indelible staple within any incarnation of Batman. It’s also one that attracts a lot of attention precisely because, with each passing iteration, the Batmobile is carefully refined to better suit the world it inhabits — be it the gothic-inspired take with Tim Burton’s movie or the brute force of Christopher Nolan’s Tumbler. It is, for all intents and purposes, a character in its own right.

So, with Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice looming on the horizon, fans are understandably tripping over themselves to learn more about the latest model. We’ve seen on-set images and photos that take us up close and personal with the formidable, heavily-armed goliath, but according to sources close to Batman News, the Batmobile we know isn’t the only vehicle in Mr. Wayne’s garage. »

Guinness World Record for the Largest Collection of The Nightmare Before Christmas Memorabilia

28 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

What’s this? Adding more festiveness to the spooky season, the folks at Guinness World Records have recognized the world record holder for the biggest collection of The Nightmare Before Christmas memorabilia. Clocking in at 2,020 different pieces, William Wong’s assortment of items pertaining to Tim Burton’s classic 1993 film is vast enough to decorate Halloween Town to Jack Skellington’s satisfaction.

“New York – October 21, 2014 – Guinness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking achievement, is celebrating Halloween by spotlighting Guinness World Records 2015 Edition record-holder William Wong, whose collection of 2,020 unique items is officially recognized as the Largest collection of The Nightmare Before Christmas memorabilia.

Wong, a 46-year-old native of Hong Kong, began his collection 21 years ago, before Tim Burton’s stop-motion musical fantasy even hit theaters.

When asked why Wong has grown his collection to such lengths, he responded: “Ever since I was very young, I’ve always been attracted »

This video of monster makeup legend Rick Baker will leave you weeping

28 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Makeup artist Rick Baker, the man behind everything from "An American Werewolf in London" to "Coming to America" to "Maleficent," has worked out of his current studio — a Hogwarts-like prosthetics laboratory that doubles as a museum to past work — for 20 years. He set it up because his last work space was too small. On movies like Tim Burton’s “Planet of the Apes” remake or Ron Howard’s live-action “Grinch,” Baker would command a team of nearly 100 people, toiling away over Whos from Whoville and articulate monkey masks. Today, he’s looking to downsize. CG is a tidal force. If a movie’s going to have 100 apes storming into battle, they’re going to be digital. Baker isn’t out of commission, but he’s aware the days of giant makeup jobs are behind him. In a new video commissioned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, Baker takes »

Mark Rylance is Roald Dahl's 'The Bfg' for Director Steven Spielberg

27 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After once being slated to play the Mad Hatter's father in Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Tim Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, Tony Award winner Mark Rylance ended up not taking the role, and it went to Rhys Ifans of The Amazing Spider-Man. However, Rylance did end up getting a role in Steven Spielberg's forthcoming Cold War thriller with Tom Hanks. And it turns out to have been a great move for the actor because DreamWorks has announced that Rylance has also landed the title role in The Bfg, the adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic novel that will also be adapted by Steven Spielberg. Read on! For those who don't know, The Bfg is a family friendly story about a little girl who leads a big, friendly giant and the Queen of England on a journey to stop the fiercer man-eating giants from gobbling children. »
