Yes, Oscars Are a Little Less White, but Hollywood Still Has a Lot of Work to Do

21 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It hit Jharrel Jerome like a punch in the gut. In 2016, for the second year running, performers of color had been shut out of the Oscars. The Latino college student was a novice actor with only a few professional credits, and for him, the message was personal.

“It was definitely rough, and it was definitely an uncomfortable feeling,” he recalls. “It was the industry that I wanted to go into and be a part of the rest of my life. It almost felt as though the work I would put in would not matter. It was shocking we didn’t get a foot in the door.”

This year’s crop of Academy Awards nominees tells a different story than the one that wounded Jerome and others — the films and performances being honored form a much more inclusive tapestry. The stories selected as among the best are ones that deal explicitly with race in America, »

‘Reach for the Sky’ – The 7 Most Badass Movie Cowboys of All Time

23 January 2017 4:31 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Matt Rodgers

As the DVD and Blu-ray release of Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven rides into your homes, we take a look at those heroes, anti-heroes, and low down dirty scoundrels that would make up our own cinematic posse. Sadly, none of the movie cowboys come from the Mario Van Peebles, ahead of its time, diversity epic, Posse, despite a cast that includes Stephen Baldwin, Billy Zane, and Big Daddy Kane. Alas.

Imagine if Thandie Netwon’s Westworld progressive, Maeve Millay, were to swipe on her generic tablet to the page marked “Host Influences and Templates”, then we’d like to think that amongst the hundreds of profiles garnered from one of Hollywood’s richest genres, The Western, this mostly magnificent seven would make up the first page.

Here’s a brand new and exclusive behind the scenes clip from Nicolas Cage’s latest movie USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage which sees the veteran actor take on the role of Charles McWay in the movie based on a true story.

You may recall Quint’s monologue in 1974 movie Jaws where recounts the demise of the USS Indianapolis after being torpedoed by the Japanese and how all the crew of the Portland-class cruiser were forced into the shark-invested waters beneath…. well this is that very story.  The USS Indianapolis was on of the ships used to deliver the atomic payload on Hiroshima and Nagasaki which would eventually see the end to the second world war come to and end in the Pacific.

Actor turned director Mario Van Peebles takes the helm of this astonishing story which is released today. Van Peebles talks us through what we »
