Immersed in Movies: 'War Horse' Production Designer Rick Carter Talks Spielberg, War, 'Gone with the Wind'

28 December 2011 5:15 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Long-time Steven Spielberg collaborator, production designer Rick Carter, is preoccupied with "the nature of conscience and the Goya-esque disasters of war." It began with Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" (a gritty metaphor for the destruction of the World Trade Center) and continued with "Munich" (terrorist reprisal),"Avatar" ("The Wizard of Oz" meets "Apocalypse Now"), "Sucker Punch" (war as a means of escaping insanity), "War Horse" (land and life laid waste during the Great War), and the upcoming "Lincoln" (putting a human face on the 16th President's crucible to win the Civil War and end »

It's that time of year again, and the award buzz is starting to heat up.

Announcing the 2012 Critics Choice Nominations

13 December 2011 8:04 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Award season is officially around the corner, which means the nominations are coming in droves now. The Critics Choice nominees feature some of the same contenders we've been expecting, like The Descendants and The Artist, but also has a few surprises. Namely, Martin Scorsese's Hugo as emerged as a force to be reckoned with, leading the pack with 11 nods. Brad Pitt's got not one but two movies up for best picture, with Moneyball and The Tree of Life, not to mention a best actor nod for himself. The Help also cleaned up with eight nominations. On a personal note, we're excited to see some of our favorite 2012 comedies getting some recognition, like The Muppets, Horrible Bosses, and, of course, Bridesmaids. The show doesn't air until 2012, but check out the full list of nominees when you read more. Best Picture The Artist The Descendants Drive Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close »

2012 Critics Choice Award Nominations: 'Hugo' and 'The Artist' Lead with 11 Nominations Each

13 December 2011 7:34 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (an organization I belong to) announced the nominees for the 17th Annual Critics Choice Awards this morning and Martin Scorsese's Hugo and Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist each received a massive 11 nominations with both films receiving nominations for Best Picture, Actor, Director, Screenplay, Cinematography, Art Direction, Editing, Costume Design and Score. Looking over the list I can't say there are many surprises though I am sure there are many that will be happy to see Andy Serkis with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rise of the Planet of the Apes and it's interesting to see neither Glenn Close or Janet McTeer were nominated for Albert Nobbs. When it comes to my personal nominations compared to the final tally, we are going to discuss the nominations and our personal process on the podcast later today, but the notable differences begin with Hanna being the only »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca) has announced the nominees for the 17th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards. I'm a proud voting member of the Bfca and 250 of us turned in our ballots last Sunday. And honestly? I'm very happy with the final nominations. "The Artist" and "Hugo" led the pack with 11 nominations each including Best Picture. "The Help" and "Drive" received 8 nominations each, while "The Descendants" and "War Horse" gathered 7 nods a piece.

My favorite part of the nominations? Andy Serkis, the heart of any movie he's starred in, finally received a nomination for his wonderful performance in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes!" Motion Capture be damned! Serkis was brilliant in the film!

Winners will be announced live on VH1 on Thursday, January 12th at 8pm Et/Pt, and I will be attending!

‘War Horse’ Roundtable with Steven Spielberg, Richard Curtis, and Kathleen Kennedy: “I Don’t Consider ‘War Horse’ to Be a War Movie”

12 December 2011 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] It's not even a slight exaggeration to say that Steven Spielberg is one of the most beloved filmmakers of all time, so the fact that we're getting not one but two Spielberg-helmed film this holiday season is a treat indeed. One of those is War Horse, based on a classic children's book by Michael Morpurgo. Due out Christmas Day, the drama follows the epic journey of a lovable steed named Joey who winds up on the front lines of World War I -- and his beloved owner Albert (newcomer Jeremy Irvine), who never stops looking for him. At a recent press junket in New York City, Spielberg, producer Kathleen Kennedy, and screenwriter Richard Curtis held a roundtable interview to talk about their new project. (Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski was also in attendance, but was channeling a "strong and silent" kind of vibe throughout.) Read the full transcription of the interview after »

Daily Briefing. Spielberg's "War Horse" and Crowe's "Zoo"

27 November 2011 10:41 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"Damn you, Spielberg, for getting me choked up with your Au Hasard Blockbuztar," tweets Aaron Hillis. Search for "War Horse" on Twitter and you could spend quite a while combing through the results before you'll find one that doesn't mention tears, weeping or outright blubbering. Though it doesn't open until Christmas Day, Steven Spielberg's War Horse is being shown to the media and industry now because, suggests Anne Thompson, the New York Film Critics Circle, like a state eager to draw early attention to its Republican primary, has moved its day of voting to this Tuesday. In other words, the Nyfcc will be announcing its awards for the best film of the year, performances and so on, with a full month of 2011 yet to go.

But at Deadline, Pete Hammond suggests that the "unusual strategy" Dreamworks and distributor Disney are pursuing isn't hinging on a single band of critics. »

Jurassic Park Coming to UK Cinemas & Blu-ray – Full Press Release

I think I may have actually felt a little bit of wee come out earlier when we heard the news that the legendary legends (!) from Universal Studios have decided to bring Jurassic Park back to the cinema! They did it with Back to the Future and it as one of the best cinematic experiences I’ve ever had!
