Here’s Why ‘Unforgettable’ Director Denise Di Novi Will Be the Woman Who Gets Another Shot

2 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This weekend, veteran producer Denise Di Novi saw her directorial debut, Warner Bros.’ “Unforgettable,” make an underwhelming box-office debut with an estimated $4.8 million for the weekend. For most women, that would be the kiss of death: Very few women get the chance to direct studio films, and underperformance means there won’t be an encore. That won’t be the case for Di Novi.

Di Novi is like very few women in Hollywood. She’s an unapologetic product of the studios: After 20 years, she still has a rare overall deal at Warner Bros, where she was Tim Burton’s longtime producer (“Edward Scissorhands,” “Ed Wood,” “Nightmare Before Christmas,” his “Batman” films) as well as the shepherd to romantic hits like “Nights of Rodanthe” and Nicholas Sparks’ “A Night to Remember.” And, »

Fate Of The Furious Faces A Forgettable Foursome -- The Weekend Warrior

19 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

Will This April Dump Weekend See Any New Movie Open Over $10 Million?

After the decent opening of last week’s The Fate of the Furious--though not quite as much as I predicted--it’s going to be hard for any new movie to make a mark against its second weekend even if it drops 55% or more this weekend, which is very likely. 

Probably the best bet to make money this weekend is the thriller Unforgettable (Warner Bros.), which pits Kathryn Heigl against Rosario Dawson and is the directorial debut by producer Denise Di Novi (Crazy, Stupid, Love). It also stars Geoff Stults as the ex-husband of Heigl’s character Tessa, who becomes engaged to Dawson’s Julia, making her the stepmom to the former’s daughter, »

Alex Pettyfer, the British star of “Magic Mike,” “Endless Love” and last year’s “Elvis & Nixon,” is set to make his directorial debut with “Back Roads,” a murder mystery in which he will also star opposite Jennifer Morrison and Juliette Lewis.

The drama marks the debut feature of Upturn Productions, the label set up by Pettyfer and partner Craig Robinson in 2015. Filming has begun in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Eventually he finds himself the »

Secrets of Fatal Attraction! Crew Boiled a Real (Dead) Bunny in Shocking Kitchen Scene

29 March 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Animal lovers might want to sit this one out.

In a newly published excerpt in The Hollywood Reporter from an upcoming biography about film executive Sherry Lansing, new details have been revealed about the making of the smash 1987 film Fatal Attraction.

And while the book recalls the drama to get the film made and the fight to keep the original ending, perhaps the most shocking revelation came from “that” scene — better known as “the bunny” scene.

In it, Glenn Close‘s unhinged character boils a live bunny owned by the family of the man she has an affair with, played by Michael Douglas. »

Jonathan Baker Launching Film Fund for Low-Budget Projects (Exclusive)

7 March 2017 7:55 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former “Amazing Race” contestant Jonathan Baker is launching a film fund that will be used to complete low and micro-budget projects, Variety has learned exclusively.

Baker has announced the formation of the Baker Entertainment Fund with $5 million in bank-sourced capital.

“We want to make the difference for indie, experimental, and genre filmmakers for whom a small strategic investment is critical to the production of their films,” Baker said.

The first project is “Becoming Iconic,” a documentary directed by Neal Thibedeau, which chronicles Baker’s life.

Baker recently directed the thriller “Inconceivable,” starring Nicolas Cage, Gina Gershon, Faye Dunaway and Nicky Whelan for Lionsgate Premiere.

His production entity Baker Entertainment Group has begun production on a documentary titled “Walking With the Directors” as an homage to a number of directors who either influenced or encouraged his career, including Adrian Lyne, Jodie Foster, Taylor Hackford, Warren Beatty and Michael Bay.

The Manchurian Candidate and Jonathan Demme's filmmaking style

17 February 2017 4:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 20, 2017

Thriller remake The Manchurian Candidate is a great showcase for director Jonathan Demme's use of the camera to evoke fear and empathy...

Iraq War veteran Ben Marco wakes up on a train with a jolt. For a second, he sees an apparition from the past sitting directly opposite him. Marco blinks, and the figure vanishes.

Jonathan Demme’s remake of The Manchurian Candidate is full of small yet jarring sequences like this: moments which take place in a familiar setting, but with something strange or somehow out of place thrown in. Not long after Marco wakes up on the train, he strikes up a begrudging conversation with a young woman, Rose (Kimberly Elise), who says she's seen him around. Rose appears to have taken »

Sociopsychological Drama with Central Gay Character, French Film Icon Top Nsfc Choices

7 January 2017 9:04 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

2016 movies Things to Come (pictured) and Elle have earned French cinema icon Isabelle Huppert her – surprisingly – first National Society of Film Critics Best Actress Award. 2016 Movies: Isabelle Huppert & 'Moonlight' among National Society of Film Critics' top picks Earlier today (Jan. 7), the National Society of Film Critics announced their top 2016 movies and performances. Somewhat surprisingly, this year's Nsfc list – which generally contains more offbeat entries than those of other U.S.-based critics groups – is quite similar to their counterparts', most of which came out last December. No, that doesn't mean the National Society of Film Critics has opted for the crowd-pleasing route. Instead, this awards season U.S. critics have not infrequently gone for even less mainstream entries than usual. Examples, among either the Nsfc winners or runners-up, include Isabelle Huppert in Elle, Moonlight, Toni Erdmann, Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea, and Lily Gladstone in Certain Women.
