Karlovy Vary, Central Europe’s leading film fest, is to pay tribute to Jerry Schatzberg.
The helmer, who was one of the leading lights of New Hollywood, will present three of his early works: his 1970 debut “Puzzle of a Downfall Child,” 1971 drug drama “The Panic in Needle Park” and tragicomedy ”Scarecrow,” which starred Al Pacino and Gene Hackman and won Cannes’ Palme d’Or in 1973. Schatzberg recently revealed that he was planning to make a sequel to “Scarecrow.”
Karlovy Vary’s artistic director Karel Och said: “Jerry is one of the seminal directors of his age — occupying an exceptional position alongside the generation of talented filmmakers credited with the renaissance of American film during the 1970s.”
British helmer Mark Cousins will screen “The First Film,” which took him to the Kurdish village of Goptapa, »

Robert Pattinson Mission: Blacklist movie: Filming in August? Mission: Blacklist is not the upcoming fifth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise starring Tom Cruise. For the time being, that’s concisely called Mission: Impossible 5. So, what’s Mission: Blacklist? Well, as every ardent Robert Pattinson fan will tell you, that’s a Pattinson movie project initially announced in early May 2012. Pattinson is attached to this Embankment Films-financed (or to-be-financed) production based on Eric Maddox and Davin Seay’s book Mission: Black List #1 - The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein - As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. The title of Maddox and Seay’s book says it all. But just in case, here’s the brief Mission: Blacklist synopsis found on the Embankment Films website: Unlike other Interrogators fresh out of training, Eric Maddox (Robert Pattinson) has a brilliant and beautiful mind. He has »

Welcome to the "Arrested Development" Rewatch. Leading up to the release of Season 4, Zap2it will be taking a look back at the 53 episodes that made the show one of our most beloved TV comedies. We continue with episode 15 of Season 2, "Sword of Destiny," which first aired March 27, 2005. Watch the first three seasons of "Arrested Development" on Netflix.
Plot: Michael has to be admitted to the hospital at one of the worst possible times for the Bluth Company, leaving his new assistant Tobias to take over without Michael's approval. Meanwhile, Gob wants to get back in the good graces of the Magician's Alliance and devises a plan to pretend to be Buster's assistant at a Gothic Castle booking to impress Tony Wonder (Ben Stiller). Also, Lindsay teaches George Michael how to drive.
Bluth Company status: Troubled. A contract to build 22 houses has been cut to 18 (in a not-so-thinly-veiled »
This is a continuation of my series on Rob Zombie's feature films as a director leading up to the Friday release of his latest effort, The Lords of Salem (Read the first entry Here). I had the opportunity to speak with him at length about all five of his films and am exploring them in chronological order with snippets of my interview interspersed throughout. Today, we move on to his sophomore effort, The Devil's Rejects. The Devil's Rejects Zombie followed up House of 1000 Corpses with The Devil's Rejects, a stylistic departure from its predecessor in every conceivable way. Shifting away from the cool blues and psychedelic super-8 motif of House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects is a sun burnt road film straight out of the '70s. A drive-in exploitation picture released in the politically volatile summer of 2005, The Devil's Rejects found the Firefly clan on the »

The April 19, 2013 release of The Lords of Salem commemorates Rob Zombie's first decade as a filmmaker in grand style. Never one to take the expected path, Zombie has followed up his gritty Halloween films with a stately slice of psychedelic evil. Lords of Salem is a morose meditation on addiction, self-destruction and the sins of the past manifesting in destruction of the present. He is also well known for his music, beginning with his legendary band White Zombie (a reference to the classic Bela Lugosi vehicle from 1932) and moving on to phenomenal success as a solo artist where he cut his filmmaking teeth lensing his own videos. To coincide with his latest cinematic endeavor, he has a new album, amazon asin="B00B9I4Q9I" text="Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor", which drops April 23. He is without a doubt my favorite living director working in the genre and I've »

Tom Hanks reportedly got a bit emotional after his Broadway debut in the new show "Lucky Guy." The actor teared up as he remembered his close friend Nora Ephron, who wrote the play but passed away before she could see it hit the Great White Way.
"That was a tough moment. We were going to do this, and Nora and [show director] George C. Wolfe were going to walk out onstage. I miss her. What more can you say?" Hanks tells The New York Post of the fact he was reduced to tears.
He adds of Ephron, "Nora was just a magnificent hang ... You could be working, and you could be talking about personal things, you could be on vacation and talking about cultural history, you could be having a very lazy breakfast and you would be talking about Saddam Hussein. Nora was ... fascinated by everything. She was always doing things that were so interesting. »

Rob is back in Los Angeles, reunited with K-Stew after shooting ‘The Rover’ in Australia. But not for long — he’s already planning on leaving her again! Read on to find out what keeps pulling these two apart.
The Twilight star is set to begin filming his next movie, Mission: Blacklist, sometime in April, according to the film’s production company, Embankment Films. The movie tells the story of Eric Maddox (played by Rob), the man who spearheaded the mission to find and capture Saddam Hussein, so obviously much of the film will be based in Iraq. And though Embankment Films confirmed they would be not filming there, »

As Saddam Hussein would tell Topper Harley in Hot Shots! Part Deux: ‘I will kill you until you die from it’! This is an accurate definition for ‘overkill’ in my book – the ability to destroy an enemy or a target with more force than necessary, often to the point of silliness.
Nowadays, a jaded audience – ‘too much blood, too much gore, too much violence’ – would tend to say ‘less is more’ whenever they have the chance. But I believe cinema is a medium of excess above all and for every Bergman, there is a John Woo. To portray death in particular, there are times where truly ‘more is more’. Especially in horror and action films – where dying is a commonplace activity.
Some characters even excel at it, and when they go, their death is so over-the-top – whether or not on purpose – that you could forget the entire film you are »

Welcome to "Arrested Development" Rewatch. Leading up to the release of Season 4, Zap2it will be taking a look back at the 53 episodes that made "Ad" one of our most beloved TV comedies. Watch the first three seasons of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. Today we're covering the Season 2 premiere episode, "The One Where Michael Leaves," which premiered Nov. 7, 2004.
Finally we have made it to Season 2 of "Arrested Development." It picks up with Michael trying to get away from his family once again, but as we learned in the Season 1 premiere when he said the same thing, his development is as arrested as everyone else in the Bluth family. The plot lines become more convoluted and complex this season, and a sense of that is introduced in "The One Where Michael Leaves." Oscar moves in with Lucille, Buster gets sent to the army and Tobias at long last has blue-n himself. »
Pattinson fights Pearce in violent The Rover image In the last few years, British actor Robert Pattinson has courageously made a point of distancing himself (and his film career) from Edward Cullen, the Twilight movies' lovestruck, sparkling vampire that made the actor famous worldwide as one of the "angles" in the insufferable love triangle also featuring vampire-to-be Kristen Stewart and werewolf Taylor Lautner. Writer-director David Michôd's upcoming thriller The Rover, co-starring Guy Pearce, is Pattinson's latest tentative to create a character vastly different than the vampire Cullen. (Pictured above: Pattinson vs. Pearce in a bloody The Rover battle.) Currently filming in Australia, Michod's film is set in the near future, in the aftermath of a global financial catastrophe (at this stage, it remains unclear whether or not said catastrophe was the result of the recent highly controversial Cyprus bail-out). Pattinson plays a good-hearted Australian Outback gang member, while Pearce, »

On the tenth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq by coalition forces, Fox News Channel’s James Rosen and White House Press Sec. Jay Carney engaged in a heated exchange over the value of that conflict and whether any credit was due to President George W. Bush for going ahead with the invasion. Carney conceded that “credit is due” to President Bush for sending American troops into Iraq in 2003 which led to the toppling of Saddam Hussein. »

With the DVD release of Silent Hill: Revelation on Monday 18th March, it’ll be far from the first flick to frighten audiences with visions of the horrors of Hades.
Strange as it may sound, punters have been queuing up to endure the ultimate in torment and suffering for well over a hundred years. Along the way, as well as horrific Hells, Hollywood has given us comic versions, philosophical, political and even erotic Hells, alongside – inevitably – some old-time religion spins on the Lake of Fire. A survey of some of the more memorable examples provides not just an insight into a century of popular attitudes to the Afterlife, but also offers a snapshot of some of the most infernally good, hellishly bad, and devilishly weird films ever made.
In recent Hollywood, the big game-changer in the horror genre was Rosemary’S Baby, Roman Polanski’s hit 1968 chiller which triggered a vogue for Devil movies, »

It looks like the Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines is still not ready to make nice. On Sunday night, she tweeted: Good thing I'm not a told ya so kind of person or I might point out that 10 years ago today I said Gwb was full of bull and I was right. — Natalie Maines (@1NatalieMaines) March 11, 2013 As you may recall, 10 years ago on March 10, the Dixie Chicks were on tour in London. Under President George W. Bush’s command, the U.S. was preparing to invade Iraq under the alleged belief that Saddam Hussein was hiding “weapons of »
In the absence of a full official copy of Manning's statement, journalists have had to rely on their own note-taking from court
Bradley Manning read out a personal statement to the court in Fort Meade, Maryland, at a pre-trial hearing over his prosecution for leaking the largest trove of state secrets in Us history. It provides the first account in his own words and under his own name of how he came to download hundreds of thousands of classified documents and videos from secure military databases and transmit them to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
The Us government has refused to publish contemporaneous transcripts and documents from the Manning court martial, prompting legal complaints from open government groups. In the absence of a full official copy of Manning's statement, journalists covering the case have had to rely on their own note-taking from the courtroom.
Here the Guardian publishes a transcript compiled by independent journalist Alexa O'Brien, »
