6 Filmmaking Tips From Justin Lin

22 July 2016 6:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A fast and fervorous guide beyond the basics.

Justin Lin, like his old UCLA classmate Joe Russo, is a member of the modern generation of Hollywood directors who make us really enjoy franchise filmmaking. Enough to get excited for the Fast and Furious movies after they’d seemed driven into a dead end and now to find a new hope in Star Trek with his satisfying takeover of that series. He soon may have us even caring about Space Jam.

The Taiwan-born Lin has also been an important voice for Asian-American representation, both on screen and off. He broke out with a great indie, Better Luck Tomorrow, and went on to become a valuable asset as a studio player, for both the industry and the fans. We honor his talent and his output below by sharing advice and guidance gleaned from statements he’s made through his career.

Action Should Be Character-Driven

Lin is known, mostly »

5 Other Movie Franchises That Crashed Onto Television

21 July 2016 5:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

News this week came in that the final planned Divergent Series movie would be skipping the theaters and go direct to television/DVD.  It’s a rare move for such a major studio franchise to make, and it got me to thinking about other movie series that fizzled and did the same.  Come inside to check out a history of downward sliding franchises! 

If I come off sounding a bit harsh about all this, it’s mostly due to the fact that it’s such a bizarre situation.  It’s been awhile since a studio franchise had to dropped down to direct-to-television and it’s not a good thing.  Sure, Lionsgate is trying to spin the information that it’s part of a planned way to jumpstart a spin-off TV series...but the reality is this isn’t how they wanted The Divergent Series to end.  

It’s a failure, »

While Mila Kunis is used to the attention that comes with being a celebrity, she maintains that ex Macaulay Culkin has to deal with a much different - and more intense - breed of fame. During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday, the Bad Moms star told the host that during her eight-year relationship with the Home Alone star, she watched him encounter "abnormal" fans. "He was huge so you couldn't walk down the street with him," she explained of the early years of their romance, which began in 2001. "He always had this weird [attraction]; fans would just scream »

Child star Macaulay Culkin has disappeared from Hollywood’s spotlight, but there’s one thing he wants the world to know — he’s not a heroin addict. “I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever,” the “Home Alone” star told The Guardian. “The thing that bugged me was tabloids wrapping it all in this weird guise of concern. No, you’re trying to shift papers.” Culkin has been acting since the age of four and the obsession with his life hasn’t died down much since then.

Macaulay Culkin: "I Was Not Pounding Six Grand of Heroin Every Month"

19 July 2016 5:39 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Macaulay Culkin has emerged from his notoriously private life to put the rumors to rest.  "No, I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever," the 35-year-old former child star declared to The Guardian.  Despite being a fixture of the silver screen throughout the early 1990s with pop culture classics like Home AloneMy Girl and Richie Rich, Culkin retreated from the spotlight by the time he was just 14. Despite resurfacing for projects scattered throughout the next decade, the actor never returned to quite the level of stardom he had achieved as an adolescent. Still, his seclusion from Hollywood, an arrest for drug possession, a two-year teenage »

18 July 2016 9:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Macaulay Culkin has distanced himself from the Hollywood limelight. "I don't just turn my back, I actively don't want it," the actor told The Guardian of fame. Culkin, who's been acting since age 4, has been living in France these days where he sought privacy from the media. "I was thinking about this the other day - I'd crossed the wrong street, picked up a tail, suddenly there’s a crush of 20 paparazzi. Then people with cameraphones get involved. I don't think I'm worthy of that," Culkin, 35, said in response to why he thinks people are still fascinated with him. As »

Jacob's Ladder remake: casting and production latest

28 June 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Jul 1, 2016

The new Jacob's Ladder will be a "modern-day paranoid action thriller about two brothers"

As you may know, a Jacob's Ladder remake is in the works. Ld Entertainment says that Jacob’s Ladder will be an homage to the classic 1990 supernatural thriller rather than a remake, meaning it will take place in the present and deal with contemporary issues.

Jacob’s Ladder will be directed by David M Rosenthal. The screenplay was written by Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train) and Sarah Thorp.

It's now being reported that Karla Souza, a regular on the Us TV show How to Get Away With Murder, will play Annie/Angel, a trauma nurse who works with Jacob’s medical crew in Afghanistan. Souza’s latest movie ¿Qué Culpa Tiene el Niño? opened at number one in her native Mexico in May.

Mufasa’s death in “The Lion King,” or Anna Chlumsky breaking down in front of Macaulay Culkin’s casket in “My Girl”… I’d go on but, honestly, it’s just too hard!  Watch the super sad supercut below and let their work guide yours!  Inspired by this post?

Elijah Wood Says Hollywood Has a Pedophilia Problem

23 May 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before Elijah Wood starred as Frodo Baggins in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, he was a child actor — and now he’s making some explosive allegations about the state of Hollywood.

The actor, in a new interview with the Sunday Times, is accusing Tinseltown of having a pedophilia problem, saying “a lot of vipers” are preying on children in the business.

“Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” he said. “There is darkness in the underbelly. What bums me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power. That’s the tragedy of attempting to reveal what is happening to innocent people: they can be squashed, but their lives have been irreparably damaged.”

Macaulay Culkin: 'Aladdin is a passion project'

10 May 2016 8:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The former star of Home Alone stars in a surreal stoner version of the Arabian Nights tale masterminded by his musician friend Adam Green

Anyone raised on the Disney version of Aladdin may be surprised by Adam Green’s take on the Arabian Nights tale. Green, who rose to fame as one half of the early 2000s indie-rock band the Moldy Peaches, has created an acid-dipped retelling of Aladdin set in a papier-mache world, ruled by a sultan played by painter Francesco Clemente, with a princess that Green describes as “kind of like a Kardashian”, and a magic lamp outfitted with a 3D printer.

Green stars as the titular character, alongside Natasha Lyonne, former child star Macaulay Culkin, Alia Shawkat, Zoe Kravitz, Devendra Banhart and the Moldy Peaches’ guitarist Jack Dishel who plays a hilarious double role. Along with them are many more actors and musicians romping through a cartoon »

Adam Green's Aladdin: ‘We did everything we could to make it not feel like work’

29 April 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Once half of indie oddballs the Moldy Peaches, Green has made the year’s craziest film, a lysergic take on the folk tale starring Macaulay Culkin. We cadge a few film-making pointers from a Diy auteur

The former Moldy Peaches man Adam Green is best known as a charmingly scuzzy singer-songwriter with a curiously large following in Germany. But his latest labour of love is a warped, feature-length version of Aladdin, made on the cheap in a Brooklyn warehouse, and starring Macaulay Culkin and Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat. It’s a follow-up of sorts to a baffling film he made in 2011, The Wrong Ferrari, which was shot on iPhone and written on ketamine. Suffice to say that Green has his own hallucinogenic take on the Aladdin fable in which the princess is a reality TV star, the Sultan is a pot-bellied pervert and the lamp is a 3D printer »
