The New York Film Festival (Nyff) world premiere screening of The Walk has been moved back one day to September 26 in anticipation of the Pontiff’s visit to the city.
Nyff top brass made the move “for logistical and security reasons” due to Pope Francis’ upcoming trip to New York.
Free Nyff programming will be offered on September 25, the original date of the opening night presentation.
The festival is set to run through October 11. The world premiere of Miles Ahead is the closing night film and Steve Jobs the centerpiece screening.

Exclusive: Modern American culture – hell, world culture – is impossible to separate from technological innovation and the rush to invent, and perhaps get rich from, the next big invention. It makes sense then that we mythologize the millionaires and billionaires created by the tech sector, analyzing the complex character of the likes of Steve Jobs or Thomas Edison. But those guys weren’t just larger than life figures, they actively promoted their images, making it easy… »

In his signature black turtleneck and blue jeans, shrouded in shadows below a milky apple, Steve Jobs’ image was ubiquitous. But who was the man on the stage? What accounted for the grief of so many across the world when he died? From Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, ‘Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine’ is a critical examination of Jobs who was at once revered as an iconoclastic genius and a barbed-tongued tyrant. A candid look at Jobs’ legacy featuring interviews with a handful of those close to him at different stages in his life, the film is evocative and nuanced in capturing the essence of the Apple legend and [ Read More ]

Now fully into the second half of the year (and believe it or not, we’re almost done with July), it’s the time that most start thinking about the Oscar contenders to come. Of course, I’ve already been doing that, but certain recent Trailers (one I’ve already spoken about this week in The Revenant and one I’ll be writing about on Monday in Freeheld) have worked as a fond reminder that awards season isn’t nearly as far away as you think. As such, I’m tinkering a bit with predictions, as well as expanding my list of contenders, basically so I can then tighten things up in the coming weeks and months. That’s the name of the game right now in terms of the predictions here… In terms of major changes to the Oscar race, you’ll notice the removal of Demolition (which is »

Justine Ezarik, Aka iJustine, has added author to her lengthy resume, which also includes techie, gamer, vlogger and digital influencer. The YouTube star has just released her first book, "I, Justine: An Analog Memoir," which includes stories about her first viral YouTube video (a documentation of her 300+ page iPhone bill), her rise as a leading content creator and her take on how social media networks have evolved since she started. The memoir wouldn't have been complete for Justine without a nod to her idol, Apple creator Steve Jobs. On the cover, she's even sporting Steve's signature outfit -- a black turtleneck sweater and jeans -- while holding onto an old-school Apple computer. So, what was the inspiration behind her special tribute to Jobs? "It really started out as a joke," Justine told toofab's Brian Moreno at Comic-Con.

Biographical films are always walking something of a tightrope (even when they don.t actually involve tightropes). On the one hand they have to tell the true story about what happened to their subject, or they.re not very good biographies. On the other hand, they have to tell interesting, or exciting stories, or they won.t make for very good movies. When it comes to the upcoming film Steve Jobs, if you want to get an idea on how accurate the film is, you go to the next best source, Jobs. partner Steve Wozniak. Woz was interviewed by Bloomberg and asked how much the film.s first trailer appears to resemble reality. His response, while not a glowing endorsement, is about all the movie could ask for at this stage of the game. He said: The lines I heard spoken were not things I would say but carried the »
Summer may be the time for big blockbuster films, but it’s also the time for movie trailers for films being released in the upcoming Oscar season. Danny Boyle’s biopic Steve Jobs finally has an official trailer after its first teaser was released in May. With Boyle at the helm and a script by Aaron Sorkin, Steve Jobs is definitely one of the most anticipated films coming out this fall. Here’s the synopsis:
His passion and ingenuity have been the driving force behind the digital age. However his drive to revolutionize technology was sacrificial. Ultimately it affected his family life and possibly his health. In this revealing film we explore the trials and triumphs of a modern day genius, the late CEO of Apple inc. Steven Paul Jobs.

Has it really been 30 years since Back to the Future first arrived in cinemas? The '80s classic is one of those films that stands firm under repeat viewings, retaining its humour, heart and on-point performances from Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and co. Simply put, there isn't a frame out of place in Back to the Future.
Though Robert Zemeckis's film still feels as fresh as ever, the world has changed dramatically across the three main periods the Back to the Future series spans. Digital Spy digs deep into the history books to find out how the world looked in 1955, 1984, and where we are now.

“Startup U” is ready to launch.
ABC Family has announced the cast for its Silicon Valley-set docu-series that follows 10 entrepreneurial techies looking to make names for themselves while also perhaps bursting others’ bubbles. To do so, they must enter a grueling seven-week program at Draper University, a program led by billionaire founder and venture capitalist Tim Draper. After a semester of learning the fundamentals of launching a startup company under the mentorship of America’s business leaders, the students will pitch their ideas to venture capitalists eager to find the next big tech innovation. (To date, more than 180 Draper graduates have received funding that totals more than $20 million from mogul investors and Draper himself).
The series hails from Ugly Brother Studios, a Sky Vision partner, and serves as an example of ABC Family’s expanded reach into unscripted series. Mike Duffy, Tim Duffy, Draper, Perry Dance and Ted Iredell serve as executive producers. »

Yes folks, I’m diving back into bi-monthly Oscar predictions! At the very least, I wanted to sort of wrap up the first half of the year with a slightly different set of predictions. The Academy Awards are still a ways off in the distance, but without question we have things changing the potential contenders here and there. For example, the impetus of this extra update is to see where Pixar’s Inside Out could fit into things. I’m sticking with a big push for Ridley Scott’s The Martian, just like last time, but I wanted to take into account what the animated flick could do. Also, I wanted to fill out the technical categories a bit more, which includes some films that we haven’t talked much about. Obviously, things are still in their infancy, but I felt this was justified. Plus, who doesn’t love an update to Oscar predictions? »

Barcelona— Some people have all the fun. On an all-time roll of $3.8 billion worldwide B.O. gross through Monday – a Hollywood studio speed record – Universal saw Guillermo del Toro, helmer of one of its biggest fall plays, “Crimson Peak,” lionized at Barcelona’s CineEurope exhibitor confab with the International Filmmaker of the Year Award.
The other star of Tuesday’s proceedings was DreamWorks Animation’s Jack Black, on hand in Barcelona to present DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3,” distributed by Twentieth Century Fox International.
Meanwhile execs analyzed event cinema and cinema theaters’ burgeoning move toward premium large format screens, one of the fastest growing phenomena in the international exhibition business — both trends underscored by record receipts for “Jurassic World.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy star is back for a second series as Joe MacMillan, the ruthless visionary in AMC’s drama about the PC revolution. He explains why he likes playing bad guys – and how much his character is based on Steve Jobs
Ever since breaking through opposite Anna Friel in Bryan Fuller’s delirious, divisive TV fantasia Pushing Daisies, Lee Pace has been a familiar face at multiplexes. A role in the final Twilight film was followed by that of Thranduil, The Hobbit’s Elven King, and Guardians of the Galaxy’s supervillain, Ronan the Accuser. His latest project, Halt and Catch Fire (named after an early computer command requiring a restart), investigates the home-computing revolution in the early 1980s, with Pace’s Joe MacMillan the slippery svengali at its heart.
