Gold Diggers of 1933

22 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Such a happy movie for having been made in the middle of the Great Depression and thankful audiences lapped it up, not only because of the silly/surreal sight of choreographer Busby Berkeley’s outlandishly outsized song and dance spectacles but the dazzling display of a half-naked Ginger Rogers singing “We’re in the Money”. Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler and Joan Blondell are among the sweet-natured, wisecracking crooners and hoofers who struggle to put on a show while director Mervyn LeRoy sheparded the whole thing into the theaters making it the third most popular film that year with over 1.5 million in profit… not bad for the Great Depression.

Emma Stone and Damien Chazelle on the Magic and Alchemy of ‘La La Land’

3 September 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Telluride, Colo. — Director Damien Chazelle and actress Emma Stone are fresh off a trip to the Venice Film Festival, where “La La Land” opened the 73rd annual event last week. Oxygen containers in hand (the altitude can be a killer here), they’re soaking up the Telluride mountain air promoting the film as it continues to dazzle audiences here.

The two sat down with Variety to discuss the tricky tone of the film, the logistics of pulling it off and the alchemy of finding the right pair of actors to sell the experience.

***

Damien, it seems like only a few filmmakers each year are brave enough to travel from Venice to Telluride to Toronto during this stretch. I heard you were very excited about having that experience, though.

Damien Chazelle: Yeah, and it’s also that selfish thing of, “Well, I’ve never been to the Venice Film Festival or the Telluride Film Festival. »

Second Opinion – Café Society (2016)

3 September 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Café Society, 2016.

Written and Directed by Woody Allen.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Corey Stoll, Parker Posey, Ken Stott and Jeannie Berlin.

Synopsis:

In the 1930s, a young Bronx native moves to Hollywood where he falls in love with the secretary of his powerful uncle, an agent to the stars. After returning to New York, he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.

Woody Allen is the true great American storyteller. You can criticise and belittle his work all you want, but ultimately he is the single auteur still at work today who is wholly reminiscent of the art’s foundations: originality, creativity and passion. Locate another filmmaker who has written and directed more singular titles (meaning no adaptations, remakes or reboots) than he. You would have to go back as far as the Silent Era.

Now whilst Café Society spawns »

‘La La Land’ Composer Justin Hurwitz Details the Film’s Songwriting Process (Exclusive)

31 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” has landed on the Lido as the 73rd Venice Film Festival is officially underway. The film has dazzled critics and made an undeniable splash as an awards season prospect, creatively dabbling in the musical genre to tell a story of dreamers dreaming and the electricity that comes from chasing what makes you happy.

The DNA of those thematic strokes can be found in the original songs crafted for the film, six in all, which carry the viewer through the journey of jazz pianist Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and struggling actress Mia (Emma Stone). The film’s composer, Justin Hurwitz, spoke exclusively to Variety about the process as he and Chazelle sought to turn something traditional and classic on its ear.

Light spoilers follow…

(Note: All songs feature music by Hurwitz and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, save for “Start a Fire,” which was written by Hurwitz, »

‘La La Land’ Review: A Lively Supercut of Classic Musicals Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

31 August 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been decades since a studio produced the kind of colorful musical fantasy that “La La Land” so affectionately salutes, but writer-director Damien Chazelle is the guy for the job. Before his breakout drama “Whiplash,” Chazelle made the 2009 microbudget “Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench,” a gentle, scrappy, song-and-dance tale of an aspiring jazz trumpeter and the woman who falls for him. That movie now looks like the dry run for this grander spectacle, his third feature — another story about singing, dancing lovers struggling with modern concerns. Carved from the legacies of Vincente Minnelli, Jacques Demy, and so many others, “La La Land” is magically in tune with its reference points even as falls a few notes short of their greatness.

No matter how obvious its antecedents, “La La Land” makes it clear that this film is a serious upgrade. As the opening black-and-white Cinemascope screen opens up to glorious color, »

Ryan Gosling passes the mic to Emma Stone in new ‘La La Land’ preview

23 August 2016 11:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ryan Gosling’s crooning and whistling backed an earlier preview for upcoming musical La La Land. Now it’s Emma Stone’s turn to sing in the teaser trailer released today. Neither teaser has billed La La Land as all that upbeat of a musical. Both Gosling’s “City of Stars” and “Audition,” the song revealed in this new preview that Stone sings are rather melancholy. “Here’s to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem,” Stone sings. “Here’s to the hearts that ache. Here’s to the mess we make.” Indeed, the film’s official summary promises a story that “explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.” It’s set in modern-day Los Angeles but strongly channels a lot of 1950s and ’60s style. La La Land is Gosling and Stone’s third film together. They also played romantic interests in Crazy, Stupid, Love. »

President Obama Passes The Torch: 'Never A Man Or Woman - Not Me, Not Bill, Nobody - More Qualified Than Hillary Clinton'

27 July 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President Obama passed the Democrats' torch to his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night - but not before nostalgically savoring how it all began for him eight years ago. Headlining the third night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Obama strode onto the podium to "City of Blinding Lights," the same song that played when he took the stage at his first nominating convention in 2008. Now, like then, the crowd greeted him with his signature slogan from that first campaign: "Yes we can!" Obama opened with reflections on his two terms in the White House, saying the highlights, »

First All Singing, All Dancing Trailer For La La Land

14 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Their third team up after Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling take the lead in La La Land, director David Chazelle’s highly anticipated follow-up to Whiplash. A contemporary musical which tells the love story between struggling actress Mia (Stone) and jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling) set against the backdrop of the City of Angels. The first trailer is here, giving us a look at this ambitious throwback to musicals of old, as well as showcasing the first single from the film, City of Stars, snag by Gosling himself. While it’s certainly a change of pace from Whiplash, La La Land looks utterly fantastic, echoing the lush colours and imagery from the numerous classics starring the likes of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, all the while feeling refreshingly modern.  Released: 16th December (U.S.)/13th January 2017 (Irl/U.K.) »

Judy by the Numbers: "I Don't Care"

13 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Though nobody foresaw it at the time, 1948 was a major turning point in what would be Judy Garland’s last few years at MGM. After the one-two Freed Unit punch of Easter Parade and Words and Music at the beginning of 1948, Judy was supposed to head straight into her third Arthur Freed film,The Barkleys of Broadway. With Fred Astaire coaxed out of retirement, the duo of Astaire and Garland looked to be a new box office guarantee. Unfortunately, what wasn’t a guarantee was Judy’s health. After two months of rehearsal, Judy backed out of The Barkleys of Broadway, to be replaced by Ginger Rogers. This decision sounded the death knell for her partnership with Arthur Freed, the producer who had created the Judy Garland formula. Judy was too tired, too thin, and too weak to go on filming, until another producer from her past swooped back into the picture: Joe Pasternak. »

Dancing With the Stars Finals: Which Couple Should Win Season 22?

23 May 2016 7:05 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s time to give Dancing With the Stars credit where it’s due.

A few months back, as I compiled my gallery of Season 22 odds, I found it difficult to suppress my scoffs as I scrolled through a seemingly dismal lineup of celebrities. From Geraldo Rivera to Doug Flutie, it seemed as though the Season 22 roster was the ABC series’ least impressive yet, resulting in a general feeling of “meh” as the premiere approached.

Now, to be fair, Geraldo had no business stepping even his pinky toe on the ballroom floor, and Doug — though he exhibited great sportsmanship — was »

Jim Jarmusch Talks ‘Paterson,’ His Love for Poetry & Hip-Hop, Tilda Swinton, and Being Grateful

23 May 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Legendary American independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has been a frequent visitor to the Cannes Film Festival ever since winning the Camera d’Or for Stranger Than Paradise in 1984. He took the Grand Jury prize in 2005 for Broken Flowers but has never managed to nab the Big One. His latest film, Paterson, which premiered last week in competition here, is the story of a bus driver (played by Adam Driver) named Paterson who lives in Paterson NJ, walks his wife’s bulldog, Marvin, and writes poems in his spare time. We sat down with the great silver-haired Son of Lee Marvin to talk hip-hop, Tilda Swinton, and the poetry of everyday things.

Some critics have called this your most personal film. How do would you respond to a statement like that?

I don’t know. With our last film, Only Lovers Left Alive, everyone said “Aha! His most personal film!” I don’t know. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Café Society’

11 May 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Going into a new Woody Allen film, there’s always the hope that it’s going to be major, like “Blue Jasmine,” and not one of his trifles, like the Allen movies that have opened the Cannes Film Festival in recent years (“Hollywood Ending,” “Midnight in Paris”). At this point, however, his track record vastly favors the probability that it’s going to be a trifle, at which point the question then becomes: Will it be one of his good ones — that is, one of those Allen fables that really sings? “Café Society,” starring Jesse Eisenberg as a sweetly naïve Bronx nebbish who journeys to Hollywood in the 1930s to seek his fortune, has been made with all the verve and high-style panache and star magnetism of a small-scale Allen gem. Yet the film, watchable as it is, never quite overcomes the sense that it’s a lavish diagram working »

Co-Stars Who Should Have Worked Together More Than Once

9 April 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Sometimes actors are cast in a movie together and instantly display great onscreen chemistry. You look at them and think, “These two should work together again. They make a good team.” Sometimes they do reunite and it leads to a series of great screen collaborations, but sometimes they don’t and we’re left wishing the pair would have made more films together.

 Back in the days of the old ‘Studio System,’ movies studio execs would look for actors who had good on-screen chemistry and repeatedly cast them together in films. This was called “packaging”, and it lead to the frequent teaming of people like Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers; William Powell & Myrna Loy; Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall; Boris Karloff & Bela Lugosi; Bob Hope & Bing Crosby; Errol Flynn & Olivia de Havilland; Nelson Eddy & Jeannette MacDonald; etc., etc.

 The ‘Studio System’ is long gone and so is “packaging”. It’s a pity »
