‘A Star is Born’ at Coachella

19 April 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper filmed scenes for the ‘A Star is Born’ remake at Coachella.

Shake out those flower crowns, jean shorts, and neon accessories: we’re talking about Coachella again. I know, I know you’re probably over hearing about the three days millennial Woodstock. However, something interesting happened last weekend. It’s not Hans Zimmer playing a psychedelic set though that was pretty impressive.

Lady Gaga (née Stefani Germanotta) headlined Coachella’s Saturday night program — following Beyoncé’s decision to hold off headlining until next year due to her pregnancy. Gaga performed a surprise new song titled The Cure. Gaga then managed to film a part of Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star is Born. If that title sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve probably heard it three times. The Janet Gaynor-starring 1937 version, the Judy Garland-starring 1954 version, and the Barbra Streisand-starring 1976 version. In »

17 April 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production now underway on Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut A Star is Born, Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first image of the remake of the classic musical, featuring Cooper alongside co-star Lady Gaga, in her first leading role on the big screen. Check it out here…

The film sees Cooper as Jackson Maine, a country music star who is on the brink of decline when he discovers a talented unknown named Ally (Germanotta). As the two begin a passionate love affair, Jack coaxes Ally into the spotlight, catapulting her to stardom. But as Ally’s career quickly eclipses his own, Jack finds it increasingly hard to handle his fading glory.

First released in 1937 with Frederic March and Janet Gaynor starring, A Star is Born has since been remade twice, with 1954’s classic featuring Judy Garland and James Mason, and in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

Get a First Look at Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born

17 April 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lady Gaga is making her first turn as a leading lady in Bradley Cooper‘s directorial debut, a remake of A Star Is Born.

In the first look released Monday, a guitar-playing Cooper looks on as Gaga sings into a microphone while sporting dark hair and a much more low-key look than the singer typically flaunts during her performances.

Gaga — who seems to be going by her real name Stefani Germanotta for the film — will play Ally, Cooper’s love interest as the two embark on their road to fame. But as Ally’s stardom begins to eclipse Jackson Maine »

3 April 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

BBC Music has inked a six-year deal for U.K. broadcasting rights to the world-renowned Glastonbury Festival.

The deal, announced Monday, covers the next five iterations of the legendary music festival through 2022. This includes Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary festival in 2020, while the 2022 festival will be broadcast in the BBC’s 100th anniversary year. The festival will not be held in 2018.

It has become an integral part of what we do at Glastonbury,” said Emily Eavis, co-organizer of the Glastonbury Festival and daughter of festival founder Michael Eavis. “Together we have created something really special – two decades of historic live broadcast from many of the biggest names in »

31 March 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

The Blackcoat’s Daughter (Osgood Perkins)

Osgood Perkins’ debut feature, The Blackcoat’s Daughter – originally known as February at its premiere at Tiff last year – is a stylish exercise in dread, teasing out its slow-drip horrors with precision, and building a deliriously evil presence that hovers along the fringes. However, there’s a thin line between mystery and vagueness in storytelling, and it becomes difficult to decide where a »

The Diceman Cometh To Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born

24 March 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Andrew Dice Clay – aka The Diceman – is in advanced talks to join Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper (here making his directorial debut) in A Star Is Born. Deadline reports that the notorious comedian will play Lady Gaga’s “very Italian” father in the remake of the 1937 classic.

This’ll be the fourth A Star Is Born to hit cinemas. William A. Wellman’s original was remade with Judy Garland and James Mason in 1954, then with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson in 1976. The plot examines the effects of celebrity, with an ingenue singer falling in love with an established star. Over the course of the movie, the woman’s fame rises as the man’s falls – resulting all manner of booze-soaked bickering.

It’s a prime role for Lady Gaga, following her award-winning dramatic performance in American Horror Story. She’s made a couple of big screen appearances over years, turning »

Review: Sam Peckinpah's "Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia", Blu-ray Special Edition From Arrow

8 March 2017 5:22 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Darren Allison

Attending a film festival in the mid-seventies, Sam Peckinpah was once questioned about how the studios regularly bastardised his vision, his intension and more specifically, if he would ever be able to make a ''pure Peckinpah'' picture. He replied, '’I did 'Alfredo Garcia' and I did it exactly the way I wanted to. Good or bad, like it or not, that was my film.''

The overall narrative for Alfredo Garcia is neither complicated nor convoluted. Warren Oates plays Bennie, a simple pianist residing in a squalid barroom in Mexico. He is approached by two no-nonsense Americans (Robert Webber and Gig Young) who are attempting to track down Alfredo Garcia. The womanising Garcia is the man responsible for the pregnancy of Theresa (Janine Maldonado) the teenage daughter of a powerful Mexican boss El Jefe (Emilio Fernández). In a display of power, El Jefe offers »

Isabelle Who…ppert? A Beginner’s Guide to the Oscar-Nominated ‘Elle’ Actress

25 February 2017 5:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Isabelle who…?” It’s a question I’ve gotten more times than I’d care to count this Oscar season, as audiences discover the fearless star of Paul Verhoeven’s subversive French thriller “Elle” — who just added an Independent Spirit Award to the collection of accolades the role has earned. Still, it’s nothing to be ashamed of, if you count yourself among the cinephiles who are only now learning Mme Huppert’s name (pronounced “Hoo-pair”).

Just yesterday, the French film academy honored Huppert with her second César award — but even her compatriots are late to the party. She’s been nominated 16 times, but France takes the provocative — and extremely prolific — actress for granted. After all, she’s never not acting, whether it’s on stage (from “Medea” to “The Maids”) or screen (at a rate of two or three movies a year). When French audiences see “Elle,” in which »

10 Crucial George Segal Roles Beyond ‘The Goldbergs’

14 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Segal rode talent and a hot streak to the top of the movie heap from the mid-1960s into the 1980s. If you only know Segal for his popular TV series “Just Shoot Me” and “The Goldbergs,” here are crucial earlier roles to check out.

King Rat (1965), dir. Bryan Forbes:

This was a break-out role for Segal, a prestigious WWII drama with a mostly British cast that included John Mills, Tom Courtenay, James Fox, Patrick O’Neal, and Denholm Elliott. Segal played a charismatically amoral American sharpie, scrambling to maintain his place at the top of the black-market heap in a Japanese prison camp.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), dir. Mike Nichols:

Segal earned his lone Oscar nomination for this role, in Nichols’ adaptation of Edward Albee’s stinging marital drama. He brought brains and vulnerability as a college professor who, with his mousy wife (Sandy Dennis »

Film Review: ‘Wheeler’

3 February 2017 3:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The term “vanity project” doesn’t come close to adequately describing the hubristic folly that is “Wheeler,” an excruciatingly dull and self-indulgent faux documentary about a fortysomething singer-songwriter’s rapid and remarkably unimpeded progress toward overnight success in Nashville. It’s a Diy star vehicle for Stephen Dorff, who served as co-producer and co-writer in addition to playing Wheeler Lynn Bryson, a soulful troubadour from small-town Texas. The film gives Dorff license to intermingle with scads of actual Music City notables — including, briefly, Kris Kristofferson — who can’t stop talking about what a great artist and terrific human being Wheeler is. While watching this accumulation of affectations, you keep waiting for a punchline of some sort. But no: The movie remains relentlessly and solemnly sincere in its spinning of a fantasy that’s bound to elicit derisive snickers from anyone who knows anything about the art and commerce of country music. »
