Vidhu Vinod Chopra: 'Broken Horses will make Indians very proud'

7 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Vidhu Vinod Chopra has said Indians will be proud of his Hollywood film Broken Horses.

The award-winning director, famed for making India's highest-grossing blockbuster of all time Pk, has now set a new precedent by becoming the first Indian filmmaker to make a Hollywood production.

Set in the shadows of the Us-Mexico border gang wars, Broken Horses is an epic thriller about the bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty, and the futility of violence.

Describing the significance of the film's title, Chopra told Digital Spy: "When they take a wild horse and tame it, in the West they call it breaking in a horse. So Broken Horses is about how we get tamed in life. How when we are born we are free, and slowly we become tamed by the world around us.

"In this case of course it's a film that deals with mafia and mobs on the Mexican border. »

Today, we’re pleased to debut a special feature clip from the upcoming Gravity Diamond Luxe Edition. The upcoming re-release will feature a Dolby Atmos sound mix and three new special features, and this brief clip highlights the special feature that goes into the complex rigging and lighting that made the space sequences come to life.

Sony Sets Its Sights On Louis Leterrier For In The Deep

24 March 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, since sharks have apparently migrated to form weather patterns in the Sharknado franchise, along comes an action-thriller that looks set to put the toothsome terrors right back where they can scare us the most – between us and the shoreline. Such is the very tight premise of In The Deep, which Sony is apparently now courting director Louis Leterrier for.

The script for In The Deep comes with buzz already attached, as it landed squarely on both the 2014 Black List (the best unproduced scripts), and the 2014 Blood List (the best unproduced horror scripts), before being snapped up by Sony. It comes from screenwriter Anthony Jaswinski (Vanishing On 7th Street), and centres on the plight of a twenty-something woman who seeks to ease the pain of mourning her mother by surfing on an isolated beach. This idea of retreating »

As 'Community' heads to Yahoo, what crazy turn will its story take next?

16 March 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight at 12:01 a.m. Pacific, "Community" will become the latest cultish show canceled by a traditional TV network to live again via a streaming service — and the first of its kind to migrate over to Yahoo Screen, which will be debuting the rest of this sixth season every Monday night/Tuesday morning at this time(*). (*) There are two episodes tonight, then one a week going forward. So long as I have advance screeners, as well as time in which to do it, I'll be running episode reviews about a half hour (or, tonight, hour) after the episodes go live on Yahoo, for those of you who are up at that time of night (or in a more favorable time zone) to watch it. This is the latest improbable behind-the-scenes development in a series that has seen more than its fair share, including the firing and later re-hiring of creator Dan Harmon, »

Interview: Wamg Talks To Treading Water Director Analeine Cal y Mayor – Stars Douglas Smith, Zoë Kravitz & Carrie-Anne Moss

13 March 2015 7:49 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Treading Water is a modern-day fairytale complete with hero and heroine, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, a fairy godfather (of sorts) and an unexpected all-dancing / all-swimming finale.

Mica (Douglas Smith) faces a number of challenges. He’s grown up in a house that’s actually a museum celebrating the renowned Mexican crooner Guillermo Garibai (Gonzalo Vega). Mica’s mother Sophie (Ariadna Gil) is the guardian and tour guide of this wildly over-the-top shrine. And then there’s the fact that Mica smells like fish…

Mother and son are both too much (or not enough) for Mica’s father Richard (Don McKellar), who ends up abandoning them. No one around Mica, not even his therapist Catherine (Carrie-Anne Moss), is able to get him on track, until his childhood crush Laura (Zoë Kravitz) swims back into his life. For the first time in his life he feels happy, but Mica ends up losing her as well. »

Gael Garcia Bernal readies second film as director

10 March 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mexico City-set dark comedy Chicuarotes revolves around teenagers living on the edge of a tourist lake.

Mexican actor, director and producer Gael Garcia Bernal is hoping to shoot his second feature Chicuarotes early next year about a group of teenagers growing up by Xochimilco Lake in Mexico City.

Speaking to ScreenDaily, Bernal said: “The film will follow a group of kids - around 14, 15 years-old - who live by the lake. They’re economically poor but not miserable or unhappy, basically living in paradise.

“The narrative of the film follows their dreams of moving up economically and socially. They want to stop working and make lots of money. I can’t tell you now how they attempt to do this but it’s a comedy - a very dark comedy.”

Bernal spoke to Screen on the fringes of the Doha Film Institute’s inaugural Qumra meeting, aimed at nurturing projects by filmmakers in Qatar, across the Middle »

Walt Disney Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack for Cinderella on March 10, 2015.

Meeting Avid Filmmakers: Four Years of Best Director Interviews

24 February 2015 2:16 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Congratulations Birdman director Alejandro González Iñárritu, winner of the Oscar for Best Director! This is now four years in a row that I've interviewed the Best Director winner. Though at the time, I wasn't thinking about awards or anything else besides what to ask about the film and their process as a filmmaker. In an industry that loves data and obsessing over success, I can't help but notice a bit of a pattern here. Not that I am any indicator or predictor or grand wizard of the Oscars, but if anything I have my eye trained on very talented filmmakers and outstanding films. With Iñárritu winning this year, that makes four years in a row of winners interviewed, including Alfonso Cuarón, Ang Lee, even Michel Hazanavicius (of The Artist). Now here's the thing, behind-the-scenes there's a lot going on. Within my own realm, getting interviews is not as easy as it seems. »

Off the Carpet: Unexpected virtue at the 87th Oscars

23 February 2015 1:51 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The fact is I think Alan Sepinwall's review said it perfectly, right there in the headline, really. The 87th Oscars was a memorable event despite itself. A number of touching speeches and human moments on the Dolby Theater stage mostly mitigated some tone deaf writing, late-night-level jokes and an overall flatly produced show that started off so promisingly with an inspired opening number. It was, within that, a rather fitting and organic end to an unusual film awards season. And of course it ended on a note of PC outrage. Who would expect less in this day and age? A number of socio-political statements were made by the evening's winners and none of them rang a false note. It was like the sincerity of significance was clawing past the show's need to go viral or something (thematically interesting to me given what's being studied in the Best Picture victor). Common »

Oscars 2015: 9 Politically-Charged Acceptance Speeches

23 February 2015 4:05 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There may have been few surprises among the winners at Sunday night's Academy Awards, but one surprise was how political their speeches were. After all, in recent years, political statements have largely been unwelcome guests at the Dolby Theater.

In past years, artists from Vanessa Redgrave to Richard Gere to Michael Moore have been criticized for using their time at the Oscar podium to raise controversial issues before a worldwide audience. In an evening of glitz, glamour, and self-congratulation, mentioning the sometimes cruel realities of life beyond Hollywood Boulevard makes winners seem like party poopers. Mentioning God, your cast and crew, your spouse and kids, and Harvey Weinstein is fine, but mentioning the plight of migrant farm workers is a little too much reality for the dream factory.

Nonetheless, several winners at the 87th annual Oscar ceremony used their victory speeches to mention causes important to them. Some of those »

Oscars 2015: Birdman, Eddie Redmayne, Julianne Moore among big winners

22 February 2015 11:28 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman walked away with four of the biggest awards at the Oscars 2015.

The Michael Keaton-starrer beat American Sniper, Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, Selma, The Theory of Everything and Whiplash to the Best Picture award, while Alejandro González Iñárritu was named Best Director.

"Maybe next year the Academy will introduce some kind of immigration law. Two Mexicans in a row, that's suspicious, I guess," Iñárritu joked, referring to Alfonso Cuarón's win for Gravity last year.

The movie also achieved success in the Original Screenplay and Cinematography categories, giving it an equal number of awards to The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Wes Anderson's comedy film starring Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori was recognised for its Costume Design, Make-up and Hairstyling, Original Score and Production Design.

Eddie Redmayne celebrated another Best Actor victory for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything - which he »

Oscars 2015: Birdman beats Boyhood to win Best Picture

22 February 2015 9:09 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman has won Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards.

Alejandro González Iñárritu's technically dazzling character study held off competition from Richard Linklater's Boyhood to take home the top prize.

"Maybe next year the Academy will introduce some kind of immigration law. Two Mexicans in a row, that's suspicious, I guess," Iñárritu joked, referring to Alfonso Cuarón's win for Gravity last year.

"My fellow Mexicans, the ones who are leaving Mexico, I pray that we can find and build a government that we deserve," he concluded later, paying tribute to America as "an incredible immigrant nation".

Post by The Academy.

Birdman's Oscar chances took an upswing last month when it took home the Producers Guild Award - traditionally regarded as a Best Picture predictor - in lieu of assumed frontrunner Boyhood.

The film took home four Oscars in total: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography. »

Oscars: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Wins Best Director for ‘Birdman’

22 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has won the Best Director Oscar for “Birdman,” his groundbreaking comedy-drama exploring inner voices and the desperation of acting.

The Mexico native won over Wes Anderson for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Richard Linklater for “Boyhood,” Bennett Miller for “Foxcatcher” and Morten Tydlum for “The Imitation Game.”

Linklater and “Boyhood” had been regarded as the awards-season front-runners until recent weeks.. The unique nature of “Birdman,” with its long takes and intensity, has elevated the status of the latter.

Inarritu directed “Birdman” to be shown as a single shot with production taking place in 23 days in New York City during the spring of 2013 with a budget of $16.5 million.

The Oscar win for Inarritu comes two weeks after he took the DGA trophy – one of the top indicators of Oscar sentiment with all but seven of the DGA winners since 1948 going on to take the Best Director Oscar. Fellow Meixcan »

‘Birdman’ Dp Emmanuel Lubezki Wins Second Consecutive Oscar For Cinematography

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki has done it again–He’s won his second Oscar in two years, this time, for his work on the divisive but widely-admired Birdman. A frequent collaborator of auteurs Terrence Malick and Alfonso Cuarón, Chivo won his first Oscar for 2013’s Gravity, and brought his awe-inspiring single-take methodology back for Birdman. Though he has contributed strongly to the aesthetic of many major films, backstage at the Oscars following his speech, Chivo… »

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »

‘Birdman’s’ Emmanuel Lubezki Wins Oscar for Cinematography

22 February 2015 7:25 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Emmanuel Lubezki has won the cinematography Academy Award for “Birdman,” a year after taking the trophy for “Gravity.”

The Mexican d.p. is widely known as “Chivo” — meaning “goat” in Spanish. Presenter Jessica Chastain announced the award Sunday by proclaiming “Chivo!”

Lubezki won over “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Ida,” “Mr. Turner” and “Unbroken.” The win by Lubezki deprives Roger Deakins of an Oscar for “Unbroken,” which represented Deakins’ 12th nomination without an Oscar.

Lubezki, 51, was widely praised for his execution of the remarkable continuous-shot style of Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Birdman” – similar to the shooting style of Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity.” He won every major critic award along with Bafta, the Spirits and the American Society of Cinematographers, which made him the heavy favorite for the Oscar.

“You’re a genius but you’re a pain in the ass” Lubezki said of Inarritu when he won the Spirit award on Saturday. »

Oscars 2015: analysis

22 February 2015 3:30 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

If the 87th annual Academy Awards ceremony was devoid of the kind of shocks that fuel a week’s worth of water cooler conversations, it was not lacking in a creeping tide of subversion.

Heading into the night it had been expected that Boyhood and Birdman would square off in a kind of running battle for the senior awards that would keep things interesting up until the closing moments.

Yet by the time Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu took to the stage to claim his first directing Oscar, there was the sense that the preferred pre-show narrative of two admired indie darlings slugging it out until the bitter end would dissolve into a barren night for Boyhood.

Iñárritu’s recent victory in the DGA Awards bolstered the Mexican’s credentials and so it proved to be as he collected his first Academy Award for directing.

In hindsight his win looked increasingly likely once the DGA had cast its influential »

All the winners from Sunday’s 87th Academy Awards.

Show host Harris signs off with a chirpy, “Buenos noches!”

Sean Penn walks on. It’s time for the big one. Best film. Will it be Birdman or Boyhood? It’s Birdman! The movie ends the night tied with The Grand Budapest Hotel on four Oscars. Inarritu, referring to his pal Alfonso Cuaron who enjoyed success with Gravity at last year’s show, says, “Two Mexicans in a row. That’s suspicious, I guess.” Slightly more seriously, Agi also calls on his fellow Mexicans to help build a strong future for his beloved country. Wow, a good night for Birdman and a surprisingly barren one for Boyhood. Pirates indeed, Ethan Hawke, but glorious pirates.

And now Matthew McConaughey saunters on stage to announce best actress. Julianne Moore, five times a nominee at the Oscars is the favourite. Will she get it this time for Still Alice? Yes she’s got »
