MoMA Tribute Proves It’s Hard to Pick a Favorite Alfonso Cuaron Film

11 November 2014 1:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alfonso Cuaron was hailed as a master storyteller, a filmmaker of boundless vision and a generous friend and collaborator during a tribute to the Oscar-winning director Monday at the Museum of Modern Art.

The man who sent Sandra Bullock into space in “Gravity,” chronicled Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal’s journey of sexual discovery in “Y Tu Mama Tambien,” and created a nightmarish future in “Children of Men” was the main attraction amid a swirl of high society glitterati, artists and Hollywood players. Novelist Salman Rushdie, Katie Holmes, Emile Hirsch, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, director and artist Julian Schnabel and “True Detective” director Cary Fukunaga, were among the bold faced names who turned out at the Gotham event.

“My dad is a filmmaker I admire, my teacher, and above all a great father,” said Jonas Cuaron, the director’s son, during a presentation of his father’s work. »

What Happens When People Try to Deface a Banksy?

10 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

New York City was quite literally atwitter last October when the British street artist Banksy decamped there and announced a monthlong residency. As Banksy posted a new work each day in different locations, fans took to social media and raced from place to place in a citywide scavenger hunt to find his pieces before they were changed or defaced. The implicit impermanence of each artwork raised an interesting question: If Banksy is out there tagging public properties — in essence, defacing them, according to then-mayor Mike Bloomberg — who intercedes when someone defaces the Banksy?The new HBO documentary Banksy Does New York (debuting November 17 at HBO) tackles that question, and it turns out the answer is pretty delightful, as you'll see in the exclusive clip below: Banksy's works were protected by a self-assembled squad of New Yorkers who called themselves the Wet Wipe Gang, and they would restore the »

‘Last Week’ with John Oliver Lasers In On Futile State Lotteries, It’s Not For The Kids Videos

10 November 2014 7:13 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

This weeks’ “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” topics included the construction of Turkey’s insane 1000+ room presidential palace, the .NYC web domain and the taunting of Michael Bloomberg, the awesome salmon cannon with loads of media and acting peers playing along with John and illusory state lotteries.Most of us have been sold a load of goods by adverts that claim sate lottery funds finance scholarships for college and fund public schools, the idea that gambling proceeds are helping the poor pay for their education makes the state-sanctioned games somewhat acceptable to those who find gambling a true vice.

Entertainment Geekly: 'Simulacra and Simulation,' Taylor Swift, and New York

31 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

History reduces the 2009 Video Music Awards to the big moment when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift to talk about Beyoncé. This is one of the most important things that ever happened to Kanye West and Taylor Swift; for Beyoncé, it was something that happened on a Sunday. I remember much more about the 2009 Video Music Awards. I remember that the show ended with Jay Z taking all the time in the world to get to the stage so he could duet with Alicia Keys on "Empire State of Mind," a track that already felt destined to become a Hall of Fame New York anthem, »

Hollywood’s New Leaders: Film

28 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Baker, 39

Exec VP, marketing and distribution, FilmNation Entertainment

Take one self-described nerd, mix marketing expertise gained at the Edinburgh Intl. Film Festival and the Weinstein Co., and hire him at FilmNation to oversee marketing plus distribution on Benedict Cumberbatch starrer “The Imitation Game.” Result? A record $7 million purchase of “Imitation” by TWC at Berlin for the likely Oscar contender. Title aside, Baker is a jack of many trades, having shaped the studio’s brand and art-directed the “Imitation” reel that secured its purchase. He recalls his first boss, an “eccentric chain-smoking old-school theater manager” who “never hid her mistakes.” “It’s Ok to ask stupid questions,” he says. “But only once.”

Gillian Bohrer, 36

Exec VP production, Lionsgate

Bohrer has only had to interview once for a job. When she felt ready to move up in the world, her company evolved from Summit Entertainment (where she started 11 years ago) to Lionsgate. »

Have You Ever Seen a Horse Do This - in Central Park?

18 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Like any elite athlete, the horses who compete at the highest level of show jumping - the grand prix - make it look easy. But clearing fences more than 5-ft. tall and 6-ft. wide on a 1,200-lb. animal with its own opinions about the matter "only looks easy," Georgina Bloomberg, who is competing in Thursday's Central Park Grand Prix, tells People. "It takes a really special horse." It's been 12 years since there's been a major horse show in New York City, and Bloomberg, daughter of former mayor Michael Bloomberg, calls the event "a dream come true." With the help of »

Mark Halperin, John Heilemann Talk Politics in Promo for Bloomberg TV's ‘All Due Respect’ (Video)

8 September 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If the first promos for Bloomberg TV's upcoming daily talk show “All Due Respect” are to be taken at face value, co-hosts Mark Halperin and John Heilemann came up with the idea while talking about politics at a diner. “This could be a show,” Heilemann says in the commercial (above) while eating french fries in a diner. “It's kind of like what we did in our books, but it's not just politics. It's about the politics of sports, culture entertainment.” Also read: Michael Bloomberg, Former NYC Mayor, Returning to Helm Media Empire The half-hour show is part of the veteran journalist's deal. »

Michael Bloomberg, Former NYC Mayor, Returning to Helm Media Empire

3 September 2014 9:08 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After several successful years as president and chief executive officer of Bloomberg L.P., Daniel Doctoroff will step down at the end of the year to make room for the returning Michael Bloomberg. Fresh off of a 12-year run as mayor of New York City, Bloomberg originally had no intention of returning to the media empire he co-founded. Once Doctoroff steps aside, Bloomberg will once again take the reins of his company, but it was with some reluctance that he agreed to do so.

Films that contributed to a change in the law

28 August 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From fizzy drink sizes to video nasties to employment law, we look at the films that had an impact on legislation as well as culture...

Some films appear in the cinema, entertain their audience, make their money, and then dutifully shuffle off into the mists of history, only to be wheeled out now and again on TV. But occasionally, one comes along that has a lasting impact, and every so often, a movie has at least some influence on an eventual change in the law.

Here, we're going to look at a few examples of that, as we examine a selection of films that have had an impact more lasting than how much they made at the box office...

Scum

Originally conceived as a BBC Play For Today, Alan Clarke's Scum was pulled by the corporation from its broadcast schedules. Undeterred, Clarke and writer Roy Minton reworked it as a film, »

Regulators Ready to Take the Field for Dodgers Dispute

6 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The impasse over rights to the Los Angeles Dodgers, which has left 70% of television viewers in the market unable to access broadcasts of the hometown baseball team’s games, indicates that there may just be a limit to the stratospheric cost of sports rights.

More than halfway through the season, Time Warner Cable has been unable to come to an agreement with DirecTV or other major distributors to carry SportsNet La, the channel that carries only Dodgers programming, including all games, for which it snapped up rights at the staggering cost of reportedly more than $8 billion over 25 years. It is seeking between $4 and $5 per subscriber to pay the freight.

The imbroglio has federal regulators and elected officials paying increasing scrutiny to the complex world of regional sports networks, in which demand for live events drives programmers to pay increasing rates that are at least in part passed on to the consumer. »
