A photographer and his group set out in the dead of winter for the Alaskan wilderness to take advantage of the limited, but beautiful daylight. They are met by an experienced hunter and local lodge owner who instills fear within the group by telling them the legend of Maneater, a huge polar bear that has fangs and claws sharper than steel. This epic tall tale quickly becomes a real living nightmare, as the group is unaware that a bear experiment has gone wrong. The bioengineering company, Clobirch Industries, has genetically altered a polar bear so it can better survive climate change, but the end result is a relentless, deadly, man-eating, killing machine…
What’s that? A killer bear movie? Even »

Kate Winslet may be looking at her seventh Oscar nomination thanks to "Steve Jobs," the new Danny Boyle-directed biopic of the tech innovator, but that seems like a marginal curiosity compared to her other award-centric feat: She only needs a Tony to complete the storied Egot -- Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. She's already collected an Emmy for "Mildred Pierce," a Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album for Children category thanks to her narration of "Listen to the Storyteller" (alongside Graham Greene and Wynton Marsalis), and an Oscar for "The Reader." "I know, I've got a Grammy!" she exclaimed in our interview. "What's that about?" We asked her about her plans to get the Tony, whether she admires her character Joanna Hoffman (the Jobs confidante and original Mac team member), and her favorite Oscar memory. It involves a serious star sighting. »

After airing its first three seasons on A&E, Longmire was canceled by the cable network, only to be resurrected by Netflix. With Season 4 set to debut September 10 on the streaming service, stars Robert Taylor (Sheriff Walt Longmire) and Lou Diamond Phillips (Henry Standing) revealed new details about this upcoming season, and the prospects of getting renewed for a fifth season on Netflix. Here's what Lou Diamond Phillips had to say in an interview with Collider, when asked how this season is different from the first three seasons.
"What our writers - specifically Hunt Baldwin, John Coveny and Greer Shephard - have done is they've taken a thread and stretched it out over multiple episodes. In some cases, especially with the death of Walt's wife, Martha, they have continued to twist it and turn it and keep it compelling and interesting. So, certain threads are going to come to their conclusion in Season 4 of Longmire, »

Based on a short story by Graham Greene, this 1942 “what-if?” war film from the venerable Ealing Studios tells the story of a small British village overrun by invading German soldiers whose inhabitants strike back and violently murder their oppressors.The cast is equally venerable including Leslie Banks, Mervyn Johns and Basil Sydney. The director was Alberto Cavalcanti, who headlined that quintessential horror film omnibus, Dead of Night. Barely released in the Us due to its strong content, it is fairly bracing to watch even today. The original trailer is Mia so we’re using the home video release trailer.

Vivien Leigh ca. late 1940s. Vivien Leigh movies: now controversial 'Gone with the Wind,' little-seen '21 Days Together' on TCM Vivien Leigh is Turner Classic Movies' star today, Aug. 18, '15, as TCM's “Summer Under the Stars” series continues. Mostly a stage actress, Leigh was seen in only 19 films – in about 15 of which as a leading lady or star – in a movie career spanning three decades. Good for the relatively few who saw her on stage; bad for all those who have access to only a few performances of one of the most remarkable acting talents of the 20th century. This evening, TCM is showing three Vivien Leigh movies: Gone with the Wind (1939), 21 Days Together (1940), and A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). Leigh won Best Actress Academy Awards for the first and the third title. The little-remembered film in-between is a TCM premiere. 'Gone with the Wind' Seemingly all »

(1949, Carol Reed; StudioCanal, PG, DVD/Blu-ray)
From the moment the first audiences saw the opening image of Anton Karas’s zither filling the screen with the nerve-jangling Harry Lime Theme (before, indeed, they had heard the word “zither”), they knew that with the second collaboration between director Carol Reed and author Graham Greene they were in for something special. At its end they recognised they’d seen a near-perfect work, what we now call a noir classic. The title rapidly entered the language and took on new meanings as the careers of Greene as wartime intelligence agent and Kim Philby as cold war traitor became linked.
The story features an evil, charismatic anti-hero who fakes his own death and makes his home in a Viennese sewer, and ends with its dull, perplexed leading man being silently snubbed by the beautiful, unsmiling heroine in a deserted cemetery. This new print does »

The child star was the youngest person to win an Oscar and the first white girl to dance with a black man on film. Her toys, costumes and more are for sale 14 July
She once shot Eleanor Roosevelt in the backside with a slingshot, and she was the first white girl to dance with a black man in the movies. Around the time Graham Greene was sued for commenting on her “desirable little body”, she became the object of a papal inspection to determine if she was a dwarf. She counted J Edgar Hoover as a close friend from the time she became the youngest person ever to win an Oscar, right through her failed run for Congress. Only one person could make such fantastical claims: Shirley Temple. A year and a half after she succumbed to emphysema at the age of 85, the screen legend’s costumes, dolls and childhood »

With every new viewing, the resurrection of Harry Lime looks to me less secular. This classic 1949 noir – written by Graham Greene and directed by Carol Reed and now on rerelease – is a compelling parable of guilt. Joseph Cotten plays the down-on-his-luck pulp thriller writer Holly Martins, just arrived in postwar Vienna, a city carved up by the victorious allies, and swarming with chancers and black-marketeers. He’s been invited by his old pal Harry Lime to take up a job – or maybe simply be a loyal, tame witness to his bogus disappearance.

Tim McGraw has been added to the cast of The Shack, an upcoming film based on the 2007 bestselling novel by William Paul Young. The faith-based drama stars Sam Worthington as a father whose young daughter was kidnapped and believed to have been murdered while on a family camping trip. Years later, he receives a note from "Papa" — which is his wife's nickname for God — asking him to return to the shack where his daughter's bloodied clothes were found. It is there where his mourning is met with a spiritual epiphany. »
The cameras are about to start rolling on Exam director Stuart Hazeldine’s latest, the adaptation of William Paul Young’s 2007 novel The Shack. He’s just added some new actors to the cast, including Radha Mitchell, Graham Greene and Aviv Alush.Adapted by John Fusco from Young’s book, the story follows a man (Sam Worthington) whose youngest daughter is kidnapped during a family holiday. Evidence turns up in an abandoned shack to suggest she was murdered, which stymies the case. But then, four years later, he receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him to go back to the ruined building. He accepts, against his better judgment, and what he finds there changes his life forever. As it turns out, he might be in luck twice over, as Greene is on to play Male Papa, a calm and serene representation of the deity, with Spencer playing the female take. »

Exclusive: Buena Vista Social Club producer Rosa Bosch is in Cannes with a slate of four new feature documentaries, all of which are to be made in Cuba as the country begins to open itself up to international production.
The first one to shoot will be Havana Autos And Architecture, based on the book by celebrated British architect Norman Foster and journalist Mauricio Vicent.
The film is being made through Bosch’s company Cuban Star, and Ivorypress, the company run by Elena Ochoa Foster.
“The project comes out of a visit by Norman Foster to Havana and his falling love with the whole place and making a very unique link between the architecture and the car,” said Bosch.

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect. Joe Hutshing and Pietro Scalia's editing »
