We pay tribute to the film stars and directors from around the world who sadly passed away in 2016.

Hector Babenco

Argentine-born Brazilian director Hector Babenco died on July 13 at 70-years-old.

He found international success with Brazilian slum drama Pixote (1981), going on to make Kiss Of The Spider Woman (1985), for which he earned a best director Oscar nominee and William Hurt earned an Oscar win for best actor.

Babenco went on to direct Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson in Ironweed (1987) and Tom Berenger and John Lithgow in At Play In The Fields Of The Lord (1991).

After undergoing cancer treatment in the 1990s, he returned to the director’s chair for films including Brazilian prison »

Oscars 2017: Nicole Kidman Poised to Score Fourth Nom With ‘Lion’ — But How Rare Is This Achievement?

Managing Editor

Nothing is ever certain when it comes to predicting how the Oscars will shape up, but it seems as though Nicole Kidman is a slam dunk in this year’s race. The Lion star has already been nominated three times in the past — even snagging one win in the process — across categories and it seems as though a fourth is on the way. How often does this happen in the best actress and best supporting actress categories?

The reason a fourth nomination for Kidman seems inevitable is because the 49-year-old Australian-American has been nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award and a Satellite Award (losing both) as well as a Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award (awaiting results). With those in the bag, an Oscar nomination is right around the corner — and this site’s namesake, »

The Collateral Beauty cast needs to get a room.

Will Smith, Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Naomi Harris and newcomer Jacob Latimore recently sat down with People Now to talk about the new film — but they spent most of their time heaping praise on one another.

The compliments began innocently enough, with Mirren telling People, “The reality was we were very good friends all of us.” Norton took things a step further, comparing cast member Keira Knightley to legendary actress Julie Christie. “It’s not hard to get gobsmacked ,” Norton said, adding, “It’s not rocket science.”

Beatty’s Back: Warren Beatty talks his career and the inspiration behind Rules Don't Apply, and more

We haven’t seen Warren Beatty in a movie for 15 years. The Oscar-winning director hasn’t worked behind the camera — where he’s often written and produced as well — since Bulworth 18 years ago.

Now he’s doing all of those things, and playing the eccentric American business mogul Howard Hughes, in Rules Don’t Apply, a typically jaundiced ode to mid-20th century Hollywood. It’s set around the time when Beatty, then a handsome young man from Virginia, first followed his older sister, Shirley MacLaine, to Los Angeles to try his hand at movies.

“I’ve been very lucky,” acknowledges Beatty, now 79 and dressed casually in a canvas jacket »

Interview: Film Icon Warren Beatty Knows ‘Rules Don’t Apply’

21 November 2016 9:06 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When encountering film producer, director, writer and “movie star” Warren Beatty, I entered into an interview that would be truly one of a kind. The spontaneous Mr. Beatty works a talk in a give-and-take Socratic method, searching for the truth underneath the rhetoric, as he did with his new film “Rules Don’t Apply.”

The film is a quasi-biographical profile of the legendary American billionaire Howard Hughes, but don’t mention that to writer/director Beatty (who also portrays Hughes). What he wanted to explore was the truth around Hughes, in the personification of a fictional couple (Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins) working for the billionaire. Set in 1958 Hollywood – the same year a young Warren Beatty arrived there – the film highlights the clash between the sexual looseness that existed in the movie business, and the potential seekers that “got off the bus” in tinsel town, still mired in their 1950s puritanism. »

Warren Beatty on Ex-Loves Diane Keaton, Julie Christie and More: They Are ‘Brilliant, Beautiful Women’

From Diane Keaton, Julie Christie and Natalie Wood to his current wife of 24 years, Annette Bening, the women Warren Beatty dated throughout his life were some of the most stunning in Hollywood — but they were so much more than just great beauties to him.

Warren Beatty Talks Hollywood Legends, Humanizing Howard Hughes and More in Career-Spanning IndieWire Interview

16 November 2016 10:08 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Last month, Warren Beatty hosted an Academy screening on the Fox lot for his new film, “Rules Don’t Apply.” The actor and Oscar-winning director cheerfully greeted new arrivals, but when he introduced his movie it was in his typically controlling fashion: “It’s not a Howard Hughes biopic!”

People can be forgiven for the mistake. Beatty, 79, has wanted to make a movie about the neurotic aerospace and movie mogul since 1973, when he noticed during a stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel that a room was always occupied by two crewcut men in dark suits. The self-protective movie star thought the hotel was spying on him, but a manager told Beatty that the men worked for Howard Hughes, who at the time reserved seven rooms, plus five private bungalows for his girls.

At the time, Beatty was working with Robert Towne on the Oscar-nominated script of “Shampoo” (1975). Hal Ashby directed »

How Leonard Cohen's Music Turned 'McCabe & Mrs. Miller' Into a Masterpiece

14 November 2016 6:06 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In early 1971, Leonard Cohen was still a relatively unknown singer-songwriter. Despite releasing two critically acclaimed records – 1967's Songs of Leonard Cohen and 1969's Songs From a Room – the Canadian artist, who previously plied his trade as a novelist and poet, had yet to tour the U.S. He was then living on a farm in the small town of Big East Fork, Tennessee while preparing the release of that March's Songs of Love and Hate.

Leonard Cohen Was the Natural Born King of Movie Soundtracks

13 November 2016 8:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leonard Cohen, who died last week at 82, was a poet, a pop star, a womanizer, a monk, a poor man, a rich man, a joker, a sage. But for those of us who are movie fanatics, he also occupied a role as extraordinary as it was utterly accidental: He was one of the most natural-born composers of movie soundtracks who ever lived. I say “accidental” because if you look at the films that made indelible use of Cohen’s music, there isn’t one among them in which the songs in question were written or recorded for the movie. In each case, the songs were composed several years beforehand and appeared on one of Cohen’s 14 studio albums.

The mystique of a great Cohen soundtrack was tied to the fact that he was almost never a Top 40 artist. If, like me, you followed his career from a distance, when you »

Doctor Zhivago Screens October 26th at The Tivoli – ‘Classics in the Loop’

23 October 2016 5:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“They rode them down, Lara. Women and children, begging for bread. There will be no more ‘peaceful’ demonstrations.”

David Lean’s Doctor Zhivago screens Wednesday October 19th at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar in ‘The Loop’) as the last installment (for now) of their new ‘Classics in the Loop’ film series. The movie starts at 7pm and admission is $7. It will be on The Tivoli’s big screen.

The most successful of David Lean’s films in terms of box office, Doctor Zhivago (1965) provides us a picturesque view into the upheaval of the Bolshevik Revolution as well as the lives left in its wake. But unlike other popular Lean films, this one would have us believe it’s a romance about anything else. The political and military conflict serves as the backdrop rather than the driving force of the film. Omar Sharif plays an idealistic doctor/poet orphaned at an early »

Will ‘Allied’ Be the Next Film on Marion Cotillard’s Flawless Résumé?

18 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Marion Cotillard (Courtesy: Rob Kim/Getty Images)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Marion Cotillard has been in the business since the age of 18 and, within the more than two decades of churning out more than 50 feature movies, has rarely — if ever — turned in a bad performance no matter which role she inhabits. And now, with Allied set to hit theaters on November 23, the French-born actress is expected to wow us once more.

Allied, which is directed by Robert Zemeckis, stars Cotillard as a French Resistance fighter named Marianne Beausejour and Brad Pitt as an intelligence officer in North Africa named Max Vatan who begin a relationship while behind enemy lines. The two decide to take their romance to London — where they marry — but their love is tested by the pressures of World War II.

While moviegoers have yet to see anything beyond the teasers and trailers for the Paramount flick, »
