Study Ranks American Actors’ British Accents, and Vice Versa

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

Anyone who’s seen “Mary Poppins” knows what a bad Cockney accent sounds like. But for the first time, British actors have ranked Dick Van Dyke’s “mockney” as the worst attempt at a U.K. accent in a pool of the highest grossing films’ leads.

Language-learning app Babbel commissioned ex-pat professional actors from both the U.K. and U.S. to vote on a five-point scale on how convincing the accents were for leading parts in blockbusters grossing over $100 million.

For the United States accent, American Actors UK awarded British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor a 4.5/5 for his work as Solomon Northup in “12 Years a Slave.” Tied for second are the DC superheros; Christian Bale as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman both garnered 4.2/5 scores.

Best in show for the Americans attempting the over-the-pond accents, awarded by British Actors in La, are Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow and Renée Zellweger. Streep’s »

Beauty vs Beast: Bonnie & Clyde's Last Stand

21 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here continuing the talk of last night's big events - specifically the biggest, the corker, the one for the ages, when Warren Beatty rammed the wrong envelope into Faye Dunaway's hands and just made her deal with it. (Something tells me Annette Bening is the one who calls the plumber and writes the checks in that household.) Or was Warren just too scared of Faye to speak up? Don't fuck with her, fellas - if Faye was eyeballing me like that I might crumble to dust too.

Or perhaps it was a Russian conspiracy that will be solved when we finally see Donald Trump's tax returns? So many possibilities, and it's clearly a bit rude to lay any real blame for a dumb mistake at the feet of Faye & Warren, who were after all standing there in the hot glare of two billion eyeballs with »

The Premiere League Oscar Nominations!

26 February 2017 4:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So, it’s was the Academy Awards yesterday, Hollywood’s biggest night of the year where the stars got themselves dressed up to hit the red carpet, all in honour of the little gold man they call Oscar. It was quite the eventful evening, with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway accidentally awarding the wrong film with the Best Picture award. Beatty was handed the wrong envelope which gave the award to La La Land, instead of the true winner, Moonlight. It wasn’t their fault, but it really did bring deliver of the most cringeworthy moments ever.

To lighten the mood, the folks over at Enhanced Bets have put together a fun little piece that they hare calling ‘The Premiere League Oscar Nominations,’ a light-hearted look at an alternative set of movie posters where footballers Diego Costa, Ashley Young, and Wilfried Zaha give Oscar nominee Andrew Garfield and Oscar-winner Casey Affleck »

Melanie Lynskey Talks ‘I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore,’ Working Outside The Studio System, More [Interview]

24 February 2017 2:08 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At 16 years of age, Melanie Lynskey kickstarted her career alongside Kate Winslet in Peter Jackson‘s masterful “Heavenly Creatures.” Ever since then she has built up a career as an indie queen, refusing to adhere to Hollywood conventions and going at her own free-spirited pace to smaller, more original scripts that the mainstream would never touch.

Her latest film, Macon Blair’s fantastic “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore,” won the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

2017 is full of 'Wonder'

24 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Murtada here. On twitter the CEO of the French distributor Mars, which usually distributes Woody Allen movies in France, announced that the title of his 2017 film is Wonder Wheel. It stars Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake (playing a lifeguard, if those set photos are to be believed), as well as Juno Temple, Jim Belushi and Max Casella. The film was partly shot in Coney Island so we assume that the title refers to Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park. July is our annual date with Woody so expect a Us release announcement soon.

If this title holds it’ll mark the 4th movie scheduled for release this year that contains the word “wonder” in its title. We don’t have to remind you of our most anticipated film of the year, Todd HaynesWonderstruck. There’s of course Wonder Woman.

And recently it was announced that a Julia Roberts - Jacob Tremblay collaboration, »

Leonardo DiCaprio's Oscar Acceptance Speech Never Gets Old

23 February 2017 3:20 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

As we near this year's Oscars ceremony, we can't help but look back at one of last year's most memorable moments: Leonardo DiCaprio's Oscar win. After decades of making movies, DiCaprio finally won an Oscar for his role in The Revenant. The actor had notoriously been always a nominee, never a winner, since his 1994 nomination for What's Eating Gilbert Grape, but as of 2016, he could check Academy Award off his bucket list. His speech was everything you could possibly want, plus some words about global climate change. DiCaprio also had a big night reuniting with Kate Winslet, his Titanic costar. Watch it again now, find out how we knew this would happen all along, and read DiCaprio's comments from the press room! »

My favorite best picture Oscar winner: Titanic

23 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Continuing our series of Guardian writers’ all-time Academy picks, Kate Hutchinson makes her case for James Cameron’s blockbusting romance

On the surface, Titanic’s redeeming qualities may seem as barely visible as a giant iceberg lurking in the north Atlantic sea. Crummy dialogue. Celine Dion warbling about hearts going on. Leonardo DiCaprio’s fringe curtains. The infuriating probability that if Kate Winslet’s Rose had just squidged up a bit there would have definitely been room for two on that raft. James Cameron’s 1997 disasterpiece was, in many ways, dodgy like the ocean liner’s own detector system. It was a box office ripper and an Oscars guzzler, for sure, but was at the same time rubbished for being the most expensive chick flick ever made ($200m, long since eclipsed by other blockbusters). To some eyes it was merely a hypothermic romance schmaltzily clomped together by an action auteur »

A Not-So-Brief History of All the Ladies Leonardo DiCaprio Has Dated

22 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

It goes without saying that Leonardo DiCaprio is a hit with the ladies - especially ladies who are probably tall, are probably blond, and have probably walked a runway. Over the years, the Oscar winner has romanced Hollywood actresses, Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girls, and Victoria's Secret catwalk queens, all while trying to prove that he's just a regular guy who loves riding bikes around the city, texting his famous friends with club recommendations, and hitting the vape every once in a while. While plenty of people pine for the love that Leo had with Bff Kate Winslet in Titanic (and sort of wish that they would get together Irl), the 41-year-old isn't really doing anything wrong with sowing his oats - just look at his fellow former Hollywood bachelor George Clooney, who definitely landed a catch when he married wife Amal in 2014. Leo himself revealed in an interview last »

Did the 2007 Oscars get it right?

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 24, 2017

It’s Oscar weekend! But how well do the Academy Award choices of ten years ago hold up? We’ve taken a look...

The Academy Awards are the highest profile snapshot of what films are highly rated within 12 months of their release. What they can’t predict, however, is how well regarded their choices will age, and only time can tell you that. Which is why I thought it’d be interesting to go back a decade, and see how the winners of the 79th Academy Awards, handed out on February 25th 2007, stack up ten years on…

Best Picture: The Departed

Also nominated:

Babel Letters From Iwo Jima Little Miss Sunshine The Queen

At the time, there was a little bit of acceptance that The Departed was the Scent Of A Woman moment. That just as Al Pacino got rewarded for good work in a film that’s not his finest, »

Woody Allen’s Latest Wonder Wheel Unveils First Pic Of Justin Timberlake And Kate Winslet

22 February 2017 9:47 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even at 81 years young, Woody Allen’s work rate continues to be the stuff of legend. For generations, the prolific filmmaker has operated at a remarkably brisk clip, churning out one quirky feature after another, and culminating with the release of last year’s somewhat forgettable romantic dramedy Café Society.

But a mixed reception has never stopped Allen before and sure enough, the director is behind the lens once again for Wonder Wheel, a 1950s-set period drama in which Justin Timberlake takes point as a lifeguard. Seen above alongside Juno Temple and the Oscar-winning Kate Winslet, Timberlake’s character will reportedly have some sort of romantic dalliance with Winslet’s, while Tony Sirico’s mysterious character is the one threatening to throw a spanner in the works.

Set under the grand shadow of Coney Island’s iconic Ferris wheel – known locally as the ‘Eiffel Tower of Brooklyn’ – Wonder Wheel also stars Jim Belushi, »

No mountain between them at the moment...

Remember this past summer when we first heard that Kate Winslet and Idris Elba were making a romantic drama together? Here they are making out on the set of The Mountain Between Us

The 20th Century Fox movie about a man and a woman who survive a plane crash and have to trust each other to survive in the mountains, is directed by Hany Abu-Assad (who is best known for directing two Palestinian Oscar nominees: 20015's Paradise Now and 2013's Omar), is due in late October so basically we can expect it at the festivals »

Kate Winslet Gets to Make Out With Idris Elba Because Life Just Isn't Fair

21 February 2017 1:10 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Kate Winslet, luckiest woman alive, got to make out with Idris Elba, hottest man alive, on the set of The Mountain Between Us in Canada on Tuesday. The actors, who play strangers that survive a plane crash and need to depend on each other to survive, were snapped really depending on each other, sharing a steamy embrace and passionate kiss while shooting scenes in downtown Vancouver. The film adaptation of the bestselling romance novel hits theaters in October - so we'll hopefully get a glimpse at even more hot set photos and see Idris and Kate's offscreen chemistry when they promote the film on the red carpet.

Woody Allen’s Next Film, Starring Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake, Titled ‘Wonder Wheel’

21 February 2017 12:13 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although it hasn’t been officially announced by U.S. distributor Amazon Studios yet, if history repeats itself, a new Woody Allen film will arrive this summer. It’s also the most fitting release window in some time for the director as his next feature takes place in the summer days of the 1950s, specifically in Coney Island. Although no more plot details beyond the setting have been revealed, the newly announced title should be of no surprise to those familiar with the Brooklyn locale.

Titled Wonder Wheel, it takes its name from Deno’s amusement park located there, whose circular main attraction opened back in 1920. This title was revealed by Mars Film CEO Stephane Celerier (via Woody Allen Pages), so presumably they’ll reunite with Allen to distribute his latest film in France once again.

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

A new year is upon us, which means Woody Allen has a fresh feature film on the way. As per usual, he keeps everything under lock and key until he’s ready for the world to see it, but Italian distributor Lucky Red has revealed the goods just a little bit early.

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on, audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

Review: "Mildred Pierce" (1945) Starring Joan Crawford; Criterion Blu-ray Special Edition

17 February 2017 6:27 AM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

“Cain, Curtiz, And Crawford”

By Raymond Benson

Mildred Pierce is one curious piece of cinema. As film critics Molly Haskell and Robert Polito point out in their fascinating conversation that is a supplement on this beautifully-presented Blu-ray release from The Criterion Collection, Pierce is a movie that almost doesn’t know what it wants to be. In many ways it is a woman’s picture, that is, a melodrama, but it’s disguised inside a manufactured film noir.

This reasoning is sound, for in spite of novelist James M. Cain being known for terrific pulp crime fiction (Double Indemnity, The Postman Always Rings Twice), his 1941 novel Mildred Pierce is not a crime story, unless you want to say that a young woman having an affair with her stepfather is “criminal.” The book is indeed hardboiled and pulpy, but there is no murder in it.

On the other hand, Michael Curtiz »
