New La La Land, Loving trailers and Rogue One featurette top our weekly news roundup!New La La Land, Loving trailers and Rogue One featurette top our weekly news roundup!Scott Goodyer7/15/2016 10:47:00 Am

This week we got insight into at least two of our most anticipated films of this year. Damien Chazelle's first trailer for La La Land looks incredible, and is currently in the running for the best trailer we've seen all year, and this morning we got some new footage from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! Not to mention the first trailer for Jeff Nichols' Loving, which will surely be a big player at the Oscars.

Check out our round-up of this weeks movie news below! La La Land

After seeing (and loving) Whiplash, we knew we would follow director Damien Chazelle wherever he went. And it seems he’s gone to the »

Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga star in the first trailer for festival-fave Loving

12 July 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s still a little early to start making Oscar predictions, but if we had to put our money on something it would be Mike NicholsLoving.

The first trailer for the buzzy true story was just released, and it stars Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga in two roles that will definitely be the talk of the town come awards season. Loving follows the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple living in 1958 Virginia, who are sentenced to prison simply for being married.

The result of this horrid injustice changed the legal landscape of marriage forever, and we’re excited to see this story finally told on the big screen. It earned rave reviews at Cannes earlier this year, so we’re hoping it will pop up at Tiff this September.

Nick Kroll and Nichols regular Michael Shannon also star. Catch Loving in Cineplex theatres November 4th, and watch the trailer below. »

17 times movies and TV shows were refused rights to songs

30 June 2016 9:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 1, 2016

Not every artist is happy to have their song featured in a particular TV show or film. Here are 17 times the rights were refused...

It's not only political campaigns that inspire musical artists to exercise the power of veto on the use of their songs. For reasons of finance, reputation, ego, taste and more, the following TV shows and films weren't able to secure the use of the recordings they originally sought...

Frank SinatraGoodfellas

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

Sinatra would never let Marty use his music,” explains Schoonmaker, “which is too bad because Marty may »

‘Masters of Sex’ Creator Michelle Ashford on the Art of Showrunning (Emmy Video)

27 June 2016 5:28 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“This is the weirdest, most fascinating relationship.” That was Michelle Ashford’s immediate response to the biography of pioneering sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson, whose complex working and romantic partnership spanned 30 years.

With producing partner Sarah Timberman, Ashford brought the book to HBO and FX, but also to brand-new Showtime executive David Nevins, who immediately grasped the possibilities. Sure, the subject of sex was a lure for a premium cable programmer, but “not in the way you might think,” Ashford said. “He understood that the idea of looking at sex through a scientific lens would be weird, fascinating and fresh. It was not about showing perfect bodies. He knew that if we do sex, it was at least unusual enough to make people say they’d never seen sex like that before.”

Ashford initially believed Season 1 would parallel a year in the life of Masters and Johnson, but »

...and now the finale 

Pt 4 (Finale) by Chris Feil

Clink.Clink.

1:36:43 Sounds like Martha put her own ice in her drink this time, and not chewed it down. She's also dispensed of her tight "Sunday chapel dress" for looser fits. At only 3 outfits, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is surely Elizabeth Taylor's fewest costume changes ever on screen.

The Smallest Show On Earth: In Memory Of The Bijou (1957) And The Alger (1940-2015)

18 June 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The delightful British comedy The Smallest Show on Earth headlines a great Saturday matinee offering from the UCLA Film and Television Archive on June 25 as their excellent series “Marquee Movies: Movies on Moviegoing” wraps up. So it seemed like a perfect time to resurrect my review of the movie, which celebrates the collective experience of seeing cinema in a darkened, and in this case dilapidated old auditorium, alongside my appreciation of my own hometown movie house, the Alger, which opened in 1940 and closed last year, one more victim of economics and the move toward digital distribution and exhibition.

*******************************

“You mean to tell me my uncle actually charged people to go in there? And people actually paid?” –Matt Spenser (Bill Travers) upon first seeing the condition of the Bijou Kinema, in The Smallest Show on Earth

Golden Years review – pensioners-turn-crims comedy

28 April 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There are the seeds of something interesting in this cack-handed comedy, but the talent – including Virginia McKenna and Simon Callow – are ill-served

Related: Nick Knowles: 'I can’t go to Cannes because I’m recording a Saturday-night quiz show'

“Banks, bowls … and bingo” is the tagline of the pensioners-turn-crims comedy – and it’s cack-handedness offers an early clue to the botched plot and groaning dialogue to come (the script is courtesy of Diy Sos star Nick Knowles). Bernard Hill and Virginia McKenna play Arthur and Martha Good – again, a bad sign, that – whose happy retirement is threatened after his pension pot is suddenly depleted. Erratic slapstick involving a shopping trolley means Arthur inadvertently robs a security guard, then continues his spree after he realises he’s due it all really and he can bail out similarly disenfranchised pals – including Simon Callow as a Welsh am-dram aficionado who gets his »

The Story Behind the $102 Million Donald Trump Says He's Given to Charity

11 April 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ever since he kicked off his presidential campaign last June, billionaire businessman Donald Trump has touted his history of giving to good causes, with his campaign saying he's donated more than $102 million to charity over the past five years. But according to a new Washington Post analysis, not one of those donations was a personal gift from the Gop front-runner's own money. Many of the thousands of gifts cited on a 93-page list Trump's campaign provided to the Associated Press last year were free rounds of golf, donated by his courses for charity auctions and raffles, The Post reports.

MipTV 2016 Wrap: Big Euro Pay TVs, High-End Drama and Millennials Dominate Trade Fair

7 April 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Europe’s two biggest pay TVs – Vivendi’s Canal Plus and Sky – international’s high-end drama push and trad TV’s millennial outreach made much of running – in news and trends – at a 2016 MipTV market which offered genuine insight on how some of the biggest TV companies in the world outside the U.S. are meeting the digital challenge.

Vivendi, Sky and Rtl held center stage – literally when honchos Dominique Delport, Guillaume de Posch and Jeremy Darroch made keynotes or fielded Q & As at the Palais des Festivals Grand Auditorium, later to receive Variety’s Achievement in Intl. Television Award.

But the event’s more conventional real stars were perhaps its YouTubers, led by Michelle Phan, supernovas for their fans and now more comfortably on the radar of an established TV industry which is discovering ways of handling digital natives.

Meanwhile, at a 2016 Mip TV market energized by a one-day MipDrama Screenings, »

The family of Kathleen Durst, the first wife of real estate heir and alleged murderer Robert Durst who went missing in 1982, is petitioning a New York court to formally declare her dead, according to court papers obtained by People.

One mother lost her daughter when she was murdered in 2009 at the age of 20. Another lost her son when he was sentenced last week to four life terms in prison for murdering that young woman.
