Netflix Plans Animated Motown Series

28 July 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Josh Wakely, the man behind the upcoming cartoon series "Beat Bugs" which incorporates the music of the Beatles, is about to do the same for classic Motown hits.

Netflix has given a series order to an animated kids series that will revolve around an eight-year-old boy named Ben, who lives in the city of Motown and discovers he can bring street art to life.

Smokey Robinson will be an executive producer and, like 'Bugs,' the plan is for contemporary artists to record songs from the Motown vault that will drive the plot of each episode.

Wakely is also developing a live-action series for Amazon and Lionsgate TV that will be driven by songs of Bob Dylan.

Interview: Philosopher King Mike Birbiglia of ‘Don’t Think Twice’

27 July 2016 8:42 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When comedian/writer/director Mike Birbiglia is in his element, as during the interviews he conducted at The iO Theater in Chicago, he is relaxed and ardently philosophical. He has written and directed a new film, “Don’t Think Twice,” which is about a improvisation comedy troupe, but it’s also about life.

“Don’t Think Twice” – besides being a clever play on the famous Bob Dylan song title – is essentially about the stages of life, and how we react to our own ambitions. The members of the comedy troupe – portrayed by (clockwise in the picture below, starting top left) Mike Birbiglia, Kate Miccuci, Chris Gethard, Gillian Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key and Tami Sagner – are at a crossroads in their professional and personal lives, and have to deal with the sudden uptick of fame to one of their members. As Birbiglia did with his first feature, ‘Sleepwalk with Me,’ he »

Doc Corner: 'Women He's Undressed' Reveals Hollywood Couture

26 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here. Each Tuesday we bring you reviews and features on documentaries from theatres, festivals, and on demand.

Gillian Armstrong is nearly as prolific as a documentarian as she is a dramatic filmmaker. While the likes of her “Seven Years On” series (an Australian 7 Up), her Bob Dylan concert doc Hard to Handle, or the true crime murder mystery of an interior design queen in Unfolding Florence aren’t as well-known as her collaborations with Judy Davis, Cate Blanchett, Mel Gibson, and Winona Ryder, they are eclectic and passionate works nonetheless. As she said in her interview with Jose last year at Toronto, “there’s a different art to making documentaries” and unlike many other directors who split their time between mediums, her documentaries do feel distinctly unique from her other work and yet equally essential.

Her latest non-fiction work is Women He’s Undressed, a peek behind the velvet curtain at Orry-Kelly, »

Review: Don't Think Twice, A Sweet and Poignant Examination of Finding Solace in the Art World Hustle

21 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Don't think twice, it's all right.” -- Bob Dylan As an ambitious writer, I know the struggles of trying to live my dream -- laboring tirelessly at my art for a small audience, working depressing side jobs to make ends meet, living with friends and family because I don't have enough for rent, and watching colleagues I helped get started zoom past me at lightning speed. Don't Think Twice is a beautiful portrait of these struggles and finding solace in it. I love this film. Mike Birbiglia writes, directs, and leads as Miles in Don't Think Twice, about an improv comedy troupe called The Commune. In his gang are some of the best comedians working today: Keegan-Michael Key as Jack, Chris Gethard as Bill, Gillian...

39 years ago today: Comic-Con welcomed stormtroopers to the nerd Mecca for the first time

20 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today, thousands upon thousands of fanboys and fangirls will flock toward Southern California as San Diego Comic-Con kicks off. 39 years ago today, the then-much smaller convention opened for a significant year: The first after the release of Star Wars. Though the con was still focused on comic books at the time and was contained within Sd’s El Cortez Hotel, the 1977 event did feature a “Making of Star Wars” panel. A year prior, Lucasfilm had drummed up a bit of anticipation for the movie at Comic-Con with Mark Hamill in attendance. Other notable July 20 happenings in pop culture history: • 1950: The Men, Marlon Brando’s first film, premiered in New York. • 1965: Bob Dylan’s single “Like a Rolling Stone” was released. • 1969: Broadcast on live TV to a worldwide audience, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, proclaiming the event “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. »

Movie Poster of the Week: “Atlantic City” and the Letter Forms of Gerard Huerta

15 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

One of my favorite contemporary designers is Jessica Hische, a lettering artist whose best known movie poster work is her typeface design for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. Hische is a prodigiously talented and endlessly inventive artist who has brought renewed recognition to the art of lettering and whose covers for Barnes and Noble Classics and Penguin Drop Caps are gorgeous. I mention this because I recently discovered the poster work of another extraordinary letterform artist from an earlier era, via this magnificent poster for Louis Malle’s Atlantic City.Gerard Huerta is a letterform and logo designer who got his start with CBS Records in the early 70s where he created album covers and logos for Boston, Ted Nugent, Rick Derringer, Bob Dylan and many others. His greatest claim to fame might be that he forged the “look” of heavy metal typography with his logo for Blue Öyster Cult »

Vanity Fair has published a cover story that says the actor Margot Robbie grew up in a place where “a dingo really will eat your baby” and refers to Australians as “throwback people”.

Producer RedOne Dishes on Recruiting J. Lo and Ryan Seacrest for His Music Video, Working with Michael Jackson and More

6 July 2016 4:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

RedOne might not be the most recognizable name in music - but he's responsible for some of the biggest Top 40 hits of the century. Born Nadir Khayat in Morocco in 1972, RedOne began producing and songwriting music in 1998. By 2006, he scored Billboard hits like Kat DeLuna's summer jam "Whine Up." But it wasn't until he teamed up with Lady Gaga that he became a go-to hitmaker in Hollywood. RedOne co-wrote and produced most of Gaga's earliest hits, from breakouts "Just Dance" and "Poker Face" to "LoveGame." Now 44 and with three Grammys to his name, RedOne has produced hits for everyone in the industry, »

PopPolitics: ‘A Capitol Fourth’ Brings Unity in Time of Political Division (Listen)

3 July 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tom Bergeron, host of this year’s “A Capitol Fourth” on PBS, hopes that the event on the west lawn of the Capitol in Washington on Monday is a reminder to put current political divisions in perspective.

The non-partisan event on PBS features performers like Kenny Loggins, Smokey Robinson, Amber Riley, Gavin DeGraw, Cassadee Pope, Sutton Foster and the National Symphony Orchestra.

“Something like this, ‘A Capitol Fourth,’ during a year like this, kind of underscores that while it may be divisive, it may be contentious, it may be ugly at times, we are all part ultimately of a big albeit dysfunctional family,” he tells a special Independence Day edition of Variety’s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM. “And we have been through a lot worse. I have had people say, ‘Have you ever seen it this bad?’ I say, ‘Do you remember the Civil War?’ There’s been worse things.”

Bergeron cited the success of the Broadway musical »

Flashback: 'Office Space' Gleefully Mocks Michael Bolton

30 June 2016 9:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Office Space hit theaters in February of 1999, it took in a paltry $4.2 million in its first weekend, landing in eighth place behind such widely-forgotten turkeys as My Favorite Martian, Blast From The Past, Message in a Bottle and Payback. Writer/director Mike Judge had proven himself in television with Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill, but this seemed like it would end his foray into movies and live-action work before it really began.

Office Space made such a tiny impact when it opened, it's easy to imagine »

Cinema Gadfly – Episode 22 – Bob Roberts

30 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

My guest for this month is Herb van der Poll, and he’s joined me to discuss the film he chose for me, the 1992 American-British satirical mockumentary film Bob Roberts. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

The cast is seriously insane, with Tim Robbins, Giancarlo Esposito, Ray Wise, Gore Vidal, John Cusack, Peter Gallagher, Alan Rickman, and Susan Sarandon Oh and also James Spader, Helen Hunt, Jack Black, Jeremy Piven and his sister Shira, and Bob Balaban Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know we have an election happening The film shows some strong parallels to the presidency of George W. Bush Ray Wise, of course, was famously Laura Palmer’s dad on one of my all time favorite shows, Twin Peaks In this film, he and Alan Rickman play Dick Cheney and Karl Rove type figures Folk music is often in the service of liberal causes, »

Graham Nash Talks New Rock-Doc Series, 'Woodstock' Drama

28 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Graham Nash has plenty of experience with the vagaries of rock & roll documentaries. Take Woodstock, for one: "There were three days of really good music and the movie was three hours," he says, "so there are a lot of great performances that have never been seen apart from bootlegs." No one knows that more than Nash, since Neil Young refused to be filmed during Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's career-making set at the festival. In the film, you'll hear an announcer say, "Crosby, Stills, Nash" – but no Young. "Neil threatened to deck anybody who filmed him, »

Chris Martin sure has a creative way of singing Rihanna's praises. In a new interview with The Guardian, the Coldplay frontman gushed about his "Princess of China" collaborator's universally appealing voice using some ... unexpected metaphors. "She is the Frank Sinatra of our generation. She can turn anything into gold with that voice," he said. "Rihanna's voice is just delicious for your ear. Sinatra had the same thing; anything he sang sounded pleasing to most people." Martin, 39, explained how many voices, like his or Bob Dylan's, inspire as many haters as they do fans due to "people's frequency responses," but »
