Telluride vs. Toronto: The Battle for Oscar Supremacy

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

Healthy, even heated competition between film festivals is nothing new. Cannes was founded in the late ’30s as the French response to Venice. In recent years, Shanghai has felt the heat from the government-backed Beijing, while both SXSW and Tribeca have sought to position themselves as viable alternatives to Sundance.

Rarely, however, have such tensions spiked quite so visibly, or with such high stakes involved, as in the case of Telluride and Toronto.

Nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains, the 41-year-old Telluride Film Festival is an intimate four-day affair that screens a highly selective program for Hollywood elites and deep-pocketed movie buffs. The 39-year-old Toronto Film Festival is an 11-day press and industry behemoth, Byzantine in its complexity and Canadian in its efficiency, which unspools about 300 features and attracts journalists, publicists, filmmakers and dealmakers from all over the world. Two very different events, forced by the vagaries of art, commerce »

Adam Driver Recalls Being in the Marines and Implies He's Not Close to His Parents in GQ Magazine

19 August 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

"This kid is going to be one of the most formidable actors of his generation." Director Shawn Levy has high praise for Adam Driver, star of the upcoming movie This Is Where I Leave You and GQ's September 2014 issue. Driver, who found fame via HBO's Girls, is dismissive of such praise. "That's nice of Shawn," he says. "He's, like, the kind of person who believes things will turn out good." Whether he believes it or not, Driver is currently one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood. The actor, 30, will next appear in Jeff Nichols' Midnight Special, Noah Baumbach's While We're Young and Martin Scorsese's Silence. Oh, and Driver's been cast in J.J. »

Are Star Wars Actors Really Coached On How To Speak To The Media?

18 August 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It has become common practice. If you are lucky enough to sit across from an actor who has a role in Star Wars: Episode VII, you have to figure out some way to ask them about the sequel. Crass? Maybe. If they are Domhnall Gleeson, they might figure out ways to have fun with it. If they are Harrison Ford, they might not. But they All figure out ways to dance around the questions without revealing much of anything at all. This is a coincidence, and not the result of weeks of strict media training. That is, if Girls star Adam Driver is to be believed. (Yes, he has a role in Star Wars: Episode VII as well, in case you didn.t know.) Driver spoke with EW as part of their Fall Movie Preview . he is part of the ensemble of Shawn Levy.s adult comedy This is Where »

A galaxy faraway, so close: Adam Driver on the intimacy of 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

15 August 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

We promised him up front: No Jedi mind tricks. But when EW interviewed Adam Driver for our Fall Movie Preview, we couldn’t help but slip him a few questions about his work on Star Wars: Episode VII.

Although he couldn’t confirm this, multiple sources close to the Star Wars follow-up have already told EW that Driver will be playing a villain, a threat to both veteran players (Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher) and the cast’s newcomers.

“Doing Star Wars now—that’s surreal,” Driver volunteers. “I feel like that even with this cast. You start »

11 August 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Friends and colleagues of Robin Williams were shattered by news of the Oscar-winning actor’s death, resulting in aching statements of grief about one of the funniest men who ever lived.

The 63-year-old actor was found dead in his Northern California home Monday afternoon, and investigators with the Marin County Sheriff’s Department stated the causes of death was “suicide due to asphyxia.” Williams’ family issued a statement saying that the actor had been battling depression.

Filmmakers who were close to Williams expressed disbelief at the loss.

Hollywood ‘Stunned,’ ‘Heartbroken’ Over Robin Williams’ Death

11 August 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The shock of Robin Williams’ death spread far and wide on Monday, a reflection of the actor’s long career in movies, television, stage and standup comedy.

Tributes came in from friends and colleagues, studios and executives, the directors of his many movies, fellow comics and even President Obama. Those who knew and worked with him described Williams as a comic genius with a generous heart.

Steven Spielberg called him “a pal” and expressed shock at Williams’ death of an apparent suicide at the age of 63. Williams starred as Peter opposite Dustin Hoffman’s Captain Hook in Spielberg’s 1991 movie “Hook,” and he had a voice role in the director’s 2001 feature “A.I.: Artificial Intelligence.”

“Robin was a lightning storm of comic genius and our laughter was the thunder that sustained him. He was a pal and I can’t believe he’s gone,” Spielberg said.

Jane Fonda: From ‘Vietnam Traitor’ to AFI Award and Screen Legend status (photo: Jason Bateman and Jane Fonda in ‘This Is Where I Leave You’) (See previous post: “Jane Fonda Movies: Anti-Establishment Heroine.”) Turner Classic Movies will also be showing the 2014 AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony honoring Jane Fonda, the former “Vietnam Traitor” and Barbarella-style sex kitten who has become a living American screen legend (and healthy-living guru). Believe it or not, Fonda, who still looks disarmingly great, will be turning 77 years old next December 21; she’s actually older than her father Henry Fonda was while playing Katharine Hepburn’s ailing husband in Mark Rydell’s On Golden Pond. (Henry Fonda died at age 77 in August 1982.) Jane Fonda movies in 2014 and 2015 Following a 15-year absence (mostly during the time she was married to media mogul Ted Turner), Jane Fonda resumed her film acting career in 2005, playing Jennifer Lopez »
