Curtis Hanson, the film director whose adaptation of the James Ellroy noir novel “L.A. Confidential” won him an Academy Award, died on Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 71.

The death was confirmed by Officer Jenny Houser, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department. She said that officers had been called to the house shortly before 5 p.m., and that Mr. Hanson had died of natural causes.

Curtis Hanson: A Craftsman Who, in Two Movies, Touched Greatness

21 September 2016 2:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Directing movies, Quentin Tarantino has said, “is a young man’s game. Directors don’t really get better as they get older…I’ve been studying all these directors’ careers, and boy, you tell me the one I haven’t thought of and I’ll bow my head.” Tarantino is right. For the most part, directors don’t get better as they get older. (The rare ones remain just as good.) There are exceptions to that rule, however, and none may be more dramatic, in its way, than the career of Curtis Hanson, who died Tuesday at 71.

For a long time, he worked under the radar. Then, in his forties, when he’d achieved a certain medium-grade commercial success, it was for making a handful of serviceable if not exactly indelible genre movies: the yuppie exploitation noir “Bad Influence” (1990), which played — with an entertaining hint of crassness — off the Rob Lowe sex-tape scandal. »

Goodbye, Curtis Hanson

21 September 2016 11:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Curtis Hanson, the Oscar-winning director of films including L.A. Confidential, 8 Mile, and In Her Shoes, has died. He was 71 years old. Hanson was born March 24, 1945 in Reno, Nevada but grew up in Los Angeles. After dropping out of high school, he pursued opportunities as a freelance photographer and editor of the now-defunct Cinema magazine before turning to screenwriting, which bore fruit with 1970's The Dunwich Horror, a Roger Corman-produced fright film that he co-wrote with Henry Rosenbaum and Ronald Silkosky. Hanson subsequently moved to directing with Sweet Kill, a 1973 horror film about a sexually-repressed man who finds gratification in murdering the women he sleeps with. That was followed by a string of other low-budget efforts in multiple genres, including Losin' It, a teen comedy starring a pre-Risky Business Tom Cruise.  Though he worked consistently through the '70s and '80s, Hanson wouldn't achieve mainstream recognition until »

Arthouse Audit: ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week’ Concert Doc Soars in Hybrid Release

18 September 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Reaching back over a half century, “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years” thrived with a contemporary mix of theaters and Hulu home viewing availability to become a major grossing event this weekend. The Ron Howard concert doc led an otherwise bleak set of new openers as audiences wait for top titles from festivals to reach theaters.

Included among the openers are two films from directors of Best Picture winners that got little attention: “Mr. Church” from Bruce Beresford (“Driving Miss Daisy”) and “Finding Altamira” from Hugh Hudson (“Chariots of Fire”). Fortunes take different paths. Ron Howard directed “Eight Days a Week,” while Clint Eastwood and Oliver Stone are nabbing attention with “Sully” at #1 and “Snowden” farther back in the pack, respectively.

Opening

“The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years” (Abramorama) – Metacritic: 72

$615,632 in 88 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $7,243 ; Cumulative: $772,467

‘Littlest Bigfoot’ Animated Movie in the Works at Fox Based on Jennifer Weiner’s Book

16 September 2016 11:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox Animation is developing Jennifer Weiner’s children’s book “The Littlest Bigfoot” as a movie, with Chris Bender and Jake Weiner producing through Good Fear Film.

“The Littlest Bigfoot” center on a pair of 12-year-old girls — one human, one Bigfoot — both desperately out of place in their own worlds, but who find each other and fight to keep the hidden Bigfoot world safe. The book — the first in a trilogy — was published earlier this week by Aladdin Books (a division of Simon & Schuster).

Weiner is currently writing the next installment, “Little Bigfoot, Big City,” coming November of 2017.

“I loved writing this book, and spending time with these three misfit kids who discover their own worth,” Weiner said. “I couldn’t ask for a better partner than Fox in bringing their story to the big screen.”

Andrea Miloro will oversee the project for Fox Animation. Weiner’s “In Her Shoes »

The Weekend Warrior 9/16/16: Blair Witch, Bridget Jones’s Baby, Snowden, Hillsong: Let Hope Rise

14 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:

Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood’s real-life drama about airline pilot Sully (Warner Bros.) far surpassed all expectations, making nearly $10 million more than my prediction with an opening weekend of $35 million in 3,525 theaters, also making it one of the biggest openings for a movie opening the weekend after Labor Day. The Screen Gems thriller When the Bough Breaks disappointed compared to some of their similar releases, taking second place with around where we predicted with around $14 million. The lower profile animated film The Wild Life (Summit/Lionsgate) did end up in fifth place behind Don’t Breathe and Suicide Squad, but with a measly $3.3 million in 2,493 theaters. As expected, Relativity’s theatrical return with its own horror/thriller The Disappointments Room »

The Timelessness of Loneliness: Billy Wilder's The Apartment

7 September 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

From the factory-like offices of the 1960s to the endlessness of the internet in the 21st century, The Apartment is an evergreen classic that endures to remind us that a little companionship can go a long way.

 Billy Wilder made a career out of making timeless classics. From the noir groundbreaker Double Indemnity to the boundary-pushing comedy Some Like It Hot, his run cemented him as an all-time great. But it's his five-time Oscar winning film The Apartment that unsentimentally tackled love, sex, and loneliness in modern America without knowing it would stay modern for at least fifty more years.

The Apartment was released in the summer of 1960. And with the new decade brought a new shift in the United States in the way we approached sex in film and culture. The Motion Picture Production Code (sometimes referred to as “The Hays Code”) was loosening its grip, and the cultural »

Jerry Lewis: A Career in Pictures (Photos)

4 September 2016 12:35 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The zany Lewis found an ideal straight man in crooner Dean Martin in 1945. They took their stage act to radio, then television, and then to film, where they appeared together 17 times. A haunted castle, a beautiful ghost and a menacing zombie gave Lewis plenty of comedy ammo in 1953’s “Scared Stiff.” Golf pros of the era Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson and Julius Boros joined Martin and Lewis in “The Caddy,” which also featured the Dean Martin classic song “That’s Amore.” Don’t let the title “Artists and Models” fool you. Shirley MacLaine co-starred in this 1955 gem about a. »

La La Land Razzle Dazzles Venice

Classic musicals from Singing in the Rain to An American in Paris to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg are being invoked to praise La La Land. There are comparisons to golden age stars like Shirley MacLaine, Grace Kelly and Gene Kelly. The Damien Chazelle film, starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, has critics at Venice falling in love and believing in the magic of cinema again. La La Land just topped our most anticipated fall film list and it looks like the excited anticipation was proven correct just a day later.

Jessica Lange and Shirley MacLaine Take an Unexpected Vacation in Trailer for ‘Wild Oats’

29 August 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Screen legends Jessica Lange and Shirley MacLaine have teamed for the new comedy Wild Oats, which was shot two years ago and now will finally be arriving in theaters next month. Directed by Andy Tennant (Hitch, Fools Rush In), the story follows a woman who gets a life insurance check for $5,000,000 instead of $50,000, so she takes an unexpected vacation to Canary Islands with her friend.

Also starring Demi Moore, Billy Connolly and Alan Arkin, if you enjoy often the often under-represented geriatric comedy genre, Wild Oats looks to fit the bill. This one got the Grace of Monaco treatment from The Weinstein Company, premiering on Lifetime last week before a theatrical release next month. While they still have yet to officially release a trailer, one popped up on the international circuit. Check it out below, along with the poster.

Wild Oats Poster & Trailer

29 August 2016 6:02 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Manuel Betancourt

Shirley MacLaine and Jessica Lange are in a movie together. It's called Wild Oats and it was directed by Andy Tennant of Fools Rush In and Sweet Home Alabama fame. You can see why this news is vexing. We should be thrilled about seeing MacLaine and Lange together (in a comedy no less!) but it might not be a great addition to this growing "Old dames having a ball!" genre that's become a staple of late. 

The film, which follows the two Oscar winning actresses "newly rich" (given a banking error in one's husband's insurance policy), "newly single" (see above), and "forever young" (they're timeless, these glittering movie stars) looks to be a tad more Hello My Name is Doris than I'll See You In My Dreams, with a whiff of The Exotic Marigold Hotel. Oh, and did I mention it co-stars Demi Moore

New 'A Dog's Life' Movie Poster and Trailer

28 August 2016 12:20 AM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

A live-action movie from a dog’s perspective makes for an interesting premise in the new trailer A Dog’S Purpose from director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, The 100-Foot Journey), and since the family film deals with reincarnation, Shirley MacLaine will be the first one in line.  Based on the trailer, this one will certainly be a tear-jerker.
