California Senate Approves Sweetened Movie-tv Tax Credit

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

The California State Senate has approved legislation on a 32-2 vote to extend and expand California’s movie and TV tax credit, more than tripling its current size to $330 million annually over five years.

The vote came on Friday afternoon, two days after legislative leaders and Gov. Jerry Brown announced that they had reached a deal on the legislation.

The $330 million annual outlay would be less than the $400 million-per-year outlay sought by the bill’s principal co-authors, Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra and Assemblyman Mike Gatto. Still, the program will see a significant improvement from the $100 million per year currently awarded in California tax credits.

A coalition of unions, the Motion Picture Assocation of America and notable actors such as Halle Berry, Danny Glover, Ron Perlman and Daniel Stern have spoken out in favor of the legislations, Assembly Bill 1839.

“This expansion of the Film and TV Tax Credit is a huge victory for Californians, »

Badass Grandpas: ‘The Expendables 3′ and 12 More Seasoned Stars

15 August 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Bette Davis coined the phrase “Old age is no place for sissies,” she may as well have been describing the plot of “The Expendables 3.” Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, the ensemble film features a cast of mature action vets who aren’t about to trade in their bullets for bifocals just yet. As the third entry in the popular franchise explodes into theaters on August 15, here’s a look at 12 films starring some of the toughest seniors in cinema.

Non-Stop

Continuing his late-career reinvention as a post-middle aged action hero, Liam Neeson plays a federal air marshal who receives a series of threatening texts during a transatlantic flight. Trapping the 62-year old star in a confined location proved a wise decision as the modestly-budgeted thriller opened at No. 1 in the U.S. and earned over $200 million worldwide.

Elderly action heroes and Hollywood age issues

14 August 2014 12:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of The Expendables 3 leads James to the conclusion that, when it comes to being an action hero, age is just a number...

"All I have produced before the age of 70 is not worth taking into account. At 73 I have learned a little... a little about the real structure of nature, of animals, plants, trees, birds, fishes and insects. In consequence when I am 80, I shall have made still more progress. At 90 I shall penetrate the mystery of things; at 100 I shall certainly have reached a marvellous stage; and when I am 110, everything I do, be it a dot or a line, will be alive." - Hokusai, the Japanese artist who painted the famous 'Great Wave off Kanagawa' and kept on creating astounding art until his death at the age of 88.

"I'm too old for this shit." - Roger Murtaugh, the Lapd homicide detective played by Danny Glover »

Charles Burnett's Other Masterpiece 'To Sleep With Anger'

13 August 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

"To Sleep With Anger" was released with a small bit of fanfare in 1990. Charles Burnett had already acquired a reputation as one of our most important homegrown auteurs even if most of the audience, black and white alike, were unfamiliar with his work. The film was released at something of an apex for Black American Cinema (and Black American Pop Culture in general). "Do The Right Thing" had only been released a year before, "Boyz N The Hood" was less than a year away; new black auteurs were appearing every year with a mandate to be successful and say something authentic about our experience in this country. Heady times. Danny Glover had »

The Toronto International Film Festival announced more selections Tuesday for the upcoming 2014 edition of the annual awards season kick-off. The majority of the festival's program was announced last month, but this group includes intriguing world premieres from notable directors such as Todd McCarthy ("The Cobbler") and Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights"). A number of the titles revealed have screened at other festivals including the underrated "Infinitely Polar Bear" and "Laggies" from Sundance as well as Cannes players "Two Days, One Night," "The Search" and "Clouds of Sils Maria." And yes, the presence of "Sils Maria," which is a favorite of this particular writer, means Kristen Stewart will likely hit one of the festival's many red carpets. As you'd expect for Toronto, the world premieres feature some big names including Josh Hutcherson and Benicio Del Toro in "Escobar: Paradise Lost," Jean Dujardin in "The Connection (La French)," Dustin Hoffman in "Boychoir, »
