The Walking Dead, Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut & Hannibal Nominated in 41st Annual Saturn Awards

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

What's the Best Makeup Color for Green Eyes? We Have the Answers

4 March 2015 9:39 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Certain eye colors can have people green with envy, especially rare irises that make up only two percent of the entire population. From hazel and aquamarine to a deep forest and true green, this coveted eye color has us mesmerized. The shade is a standout on its own (as witnessed in actresses like Angelina Jolie,  Amanda Seyfried and Carrie Underwood) but when you pair it with the right eye makeup shades, it can take your whole look from sweet to absolute A-list. If Christmas has taught us anything, it's this: green and red go together, no matter what the age. The reason they pair so well? They're opposite on the color wheel—what's known as complimentary colors. Whether your green eyes are »

Report: Academy Old Guard wants to go backward with just 5 Best Picture nominees

4 March 2015 2:12 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The awards world was hit with a bombshell on Tuesday afternoon after news broke that a "significant faction" of the Academy wants the Best Picture field returned to just five nominees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the old guard feels the current system has made the honor less prestigious and are using the low ratings of last month's telecast as proof that the expanded field doesn't work. The issue may be addressed as soon as the next Board of Governors meeting on March 24. Let me take a breath and prepare my reaction while you ponder this Hail Mary of a justification for a moment. (O.K., I'm ready.) Y'all crazy. First, let's discuss the "prestige" argument, shall we?   In 2009 the Best Picture field was increased to 10 nominees because of the horror (i.e. embarrassment) that the out-of-touch membership had snubbed popular and critically acclaimed blockbusters such as "Wall-e" and "The Dark Knight. »

Anthony and Joe Russo’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” lead this year’s 41st Annual Saturn Awards nominations with 11 and 10, respectively, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films announced on Tuesday.

Marvel’s summer box office smash “Guardians of the Galaxy” followed close behind with nine nominations. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” followed with eight, and “Edge of Tomorrow” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” grabbed seven apiece.

How ''71' Broke Out Rookie Yann Demange and Led Him to a "Scorsese Homage"

2 March 2015 11:16 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

That's why Yann Demange has been eagerly sought out. For the last year, since ''71' broke out at Berlin 2014 (going on to play some 33 festivals including Telluride, Toronto, New York, London and Sundance), Demange has been a critical darling (best director winner at the British Independent Film Awards and BAFTA-nominated), wined and dined on the festival circuit and in Hollywood, where he has been hanging his hat for the moment. That's what you do. You go to meeting after meeting looking for the next best project. The danger, oft-repeated, is that agents and managers and sweet-talkers lure the unsuspecting rube into development limbo--or misguided studio projects--until the heat is gone and that catapulting career moment is past. Ask David Michod, Stephen Frears, or Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who unfortunately followed up his Oscar-winning "The Lives of Others" with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie boondoggle "The Tourist."  Some wondered if Demange. »

Arthouse Audit: ''71' and 'The Hunting Ground' Open Best Among Post-Oscar Newbies (Trailers)

1 March 2015 10:58 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Après Oscars, le déluge. After months of focus on a small number of Oscar entries deep into their theatrical runs, for the first time since wide movie releases became the norm in the mid-1970s, all eight of this year's Oscar Best Picture contenders opened in initial limited release, including two from the first half of the year. So while most of us are happy to forget about awards for a while--at least until Cannes--we can agree that it's time for some new blood. And so we have Brit director Yann Demange's hailed debut "'71,' which Roadside Attractions may have hoped to get a bigger bump from Jack O'Connell's starring role in Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" (which earned only tech noms), as well as Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering's followup to last year's Oscar nominee "The Invisible War," Sundance campus rape doc "The Hunting Ground" (Radius »

Jack O’Connell Suffers (Again) and Shines in Northern Ireland Thriller ’71

27 February 2015 8:42 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the last three films I’ve seen him in, Jack O’Connell has physically suffered so much onscreen that I think he’s accidentally atoned for humanity’s sins. The 25-year-old actor, who ably held together Angelina Jolie’s WWII epic Unbroken and David Mackenzie’s intense prison drama Starred Up, is now at the center of Yann Demange’s brutal ’71, and once again he experiences the tortures of the damned. Luckily, he’s riveting in the role: The film, about a novice British soldier cut off from his unit during a riot in Belfast, is less about words and more about the varieties of terror in a young man’s eyes. '71 starts off in a procedural vein, as we watch Gary Hook (O’Connell) and his fellow soldiers (most of whom look like teenagers) in training — boxing, running, combat drills — before learning that they’re being deployed to Belfast. »

13 Reasons Why Elizabeth Taylor Is Still the Queen of Hollywood

27 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's time to raise your glass and rattle your jewelry for a birthday toast to Elizabeth Taylor, who'd have turned 83 on Feb. 27. Though memories of her begin to fade, the legacy of the woman who was perhaps the most beautiful, most popular, most everything movie star of all time remains as vivid as ever.

Younger moviegoers may wonder what all the fuss was about. Here, then, are 13 reasons why Taylor remains, decades after her prime and four years after her death, the queen of Hollywood.

1. In a way, she never left.

Even though she died in 2011, they're still showing her in commercials for her perfume, White Diamonds.

2. She's the original diva.

Long before Beyonce, the Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez, and other current divas, Taylor pretty much invented the concept that a celebrity's offscreen life was just as much a performance as onscreen, and just as much part of the job description. »

26 February 2015 3:29 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Cult favourite Nicolas Cage has carved out an eclectic and brilliant career spanning the decades and across genres, with forays into action, drama and comic book adaptations to name but a few. To celebrate the release of his latest film, Dying of the Light, out on Blu-ray and DVD from the 2nd March 2015 courtesy of Signature Entertainment, we take a look back at some of his greatest roles.

'Tomb Raider' Reboot Swings Forward With 'Snow White and the Huntsman' Writer

26 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The pair of Tomb Raider movies starring Angelina Jolie aren't exactly bulletproof pieces of cinematic history. There's no use pretending otherwise. They're not awful, they're just from an era where action movies were a bit uninspired, and as a result they're a bit generic and already rather dated despite being only a little older than a decade. So we're guessing that no one is going to be up in arms about the news that Warner Bros. and MGM are pressing the reset button on the Tomb Raider movie franchise. Just as no one was really that upset when Square Enix pressed the reset button on the game franchise a few years ago. The new Tomb Raider will be based on the current run of games, which means she's less of an upper crust aristocrat who likes to find...

‘Gods of Mischief’ Biker Gang Movie in Development

26 February 2015 8:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hyperion Media Group and Identity Films have picked up the rights to George Rowe’s “Gods of Mischief: My Undercover Vendetta to Take Down the Vagos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Rowe voluntarily infiltrated the Vagos a decade ago via “Operation 22 Green,” which led to convictions of members of the gang. Rowe was attempting to exact revenge for the killing of a friend by the Vagos.

Hyperion and Identity have tapped Mikko Alanne, the screenwriter for Chilean mining rescue drama “The 33.” Alanne recently wrote “Churchill and Roosevelt” for Angelina Jolie.

Michael Mailis will produce for Hyperion, alongside Anthony Mastromauro for Identity.

Mailis was an executive producer on Sundance film “The Hallow,” which sold recently to IFC. Mastromauro recently produced “Louder Than Words” and is developing “The Old Man and the Gun” with Robert Redford producing and David Lowery attached to direct. Alanne is repped by CAA and Media Talent Group. »

NYU Students Celebrate Women in Film at Fusion Festival

26 February 2015 8:29 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood’s lack of diversity has been a hot topic in recent weeks after Oscar voters snubbed female directors such as “Selma’s” Ava DuVernay and “Unbroken’s” Angelina Jolie, depriving them of nominations.

Amidst the ongoing debate about how to crack the entertainment industry’s glass ceiling, film and television students at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts are planning to gather to celebrate emerging female talent behind the camera and to hear from women who have succeeded in a business that remains male-dominated.

This year marks the thirteenth edition of the Fusion Film Festival, one of the only student-run gatherings providing a platform specifically for women creators in film, TV, and new media. The purpose is to elevate, not exclude, according to students involved in the program.

“It’s not that I’m for having fewer men telling stories, we need everyone’s voices,” said Lucy Ross, »
