Telluride Film Festival 2014: Most Anticipated

26 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Main Street during The Telluride Film Festival

The Telluride Film Festival seemingly appears overnight against the gorgeous backdrop of rugged mountains. It lasts just four days but in fact it takes more than a month of intensive labor to transform the elementary school, high school, hockey rink, library, the park in the middle of town and a masonic temple into theaters. Now in its 41st year,up until recently this hallowed Labor Day weekend event has long been a quiet fixture on the festival circuit. As most of the festival world knows, the escalating word of mouth about the quality of Telluride’s unofficial premieres caused the Toronto International Film Festival to issue an ultimatum to those hoping to land choice spots in the fall line-up: if you choose to screen at Telluride first, your film will be pushed back on Tiff’s slate. Realistically- Toronto has little to fear from Telluride besides buzz. »

Macaulay Culkin and the Home Alone cast then & now

26 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin McCallister is all grown up now. Macaulay Culkin celebrates his 34th birthday today (August 26), so what better time to take a trip down memory lane to find out what happened to the cast of Culkin's greatest work: Home Alone.

Digital Spy goes 'then & now' with the cast of the comedy classic below...

Macaulay Culkin

The biggest child star of the '90s, Culkin spent almost a decade away from screen acting following 1994's Ri¢hie Ri¢h. After a stint on London's West End in Madame Melville, he returned to TV and film in 2003 with roles in Will & Grace and Party Monster. His acting parts since have been sparse - a 2010 Robot Chicken Christmas special is his last (voice only) credit - but Culkin seems to have found his calling as the frontman of a Velvet Underground pizza-themed cover band.

Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide Ending After 45 Years – Internet Kills Iconic Print Paperback

19 August 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Another print icon bites the dust.

Leonard Maltin’s 2015 Movie Guide will be the final edition of this film lovers’ guide, which started in 1969 under the title TV Movies. But in recent years, the annual guide, which now numbers 1,611 pages and features nearly 16,000 capsule movie reviews, has become a victim of the changing times and the way information is consumed by a new generation. The new edition, which comes out Sept. 2, is the last, bad news for many industry-ites and film lovers who used it religiously.

“An entire generation has been raised to acquire all their information online from their mobile devices or computers,” Maltin told me this morning. “These are not the likely customers for a physical paperback reference book. Our sales have sharply declined in recent years.”

The virtual death of bookstores likely didn’t help the cause either. “We still have a loyal readership,” Maltin said. “It »

18 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.

From what I have seen so far it looks promising but then so did Hemlock Grove. Expect a full report next week. In related news, Netflix have announced a whole slate of stand-up comedy exclusive to its service after the success of the recent Aziz Ansari special. So the likes of Chelsea Handler, Jim Jefferies, Bill Cosby, Bill Burr and Chelsea Peretti will be adding stand up shows to streaming between now and December. I have only heard of a couple of these acts but there again one of the best things to do with an hour to spare is browse Netflix for its plentiful supply of stand-up »

How Reese Witherspoon could end up with three Oscar nominations this year

12 August 2014 7:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Eight and a half years ago, Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar. It came for her leading performance as June Carter in James Mangold's Johnny Cash biopic "Walk the Line." But things fell off after that for a little while. Gavin Hood's "Tsotsi" follow-up, "Rendition," went nowhere with audiences or critics. James L. Brooks' "How Do You Know" stalled. Francis Lawrence's "Water for Elephants" didn't really move the needle. Holiday rom-com "Four Christmases" and spy caper "This Means War" completely bottomed out. And then early last year, that unfortunate Atlanta arrest incident. But all the while, the actress, who has virtually grown up in the film industry, has been priming the pump with a few projects that will make it to screens this year. At the end of the season, she could well end up with as many as three Oscar nominations. The stage has truly been set for a career turnaround. »

The 86th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

8 August 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’m possibly going to be trying out a new series here. Essentially, today I’ll be going back and looking at the most recent Oscars and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories. Potentially, I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, so there’s a chance that this could turn into a long running thing. There are 86 of these to sift through after all…and counting. If nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of he year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Her The nominees here were 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Gravity, Her, Nebraska, Philomena, and The Wolf of Wall Street. »

Watch the color version of ‘Nebraska’ on cable (or don’t)

6 August 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If you’re a fan of Alexander Payne’s Oscar nominated Nebraska, you may have said to yourself, “I like this movie a lot, but I just wish I could watch it in a much worse, more generic and plain ruined format.”

Well now is your chance. The Playlist reports that the cable channel Epix is proudly promoting the world premiere of Nebraska, in full color. The film will air this Sunday August 10 at 10 Pm Et, just after a showing of the original version of Nebraska in black and white.

Granted, this isn’t CBS turning Humphrey Bogart’s suit powder blue so they can show Casablanca during Christmas. Due to negotiations in trying to get the film made, Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael was forced to shoot the film in digital, not black and white film stock, so a color version does exist. Payne even says it looks very good, but »

Epix to show the color version of Nebraska despite Alexander Payne's wishes

One of the best films to come out last year was Alexander Payne’s fantastic black and white film Nebraska. The story is about a booze-addled father played masterfully by Bruce Dern that makes the trip from Montana to Nebraska with his estranged son in order to claim a million-dollar Mega Sweepstakes Marketing prize. If you haven’t seen the film yet, I urge you to do so immediately. A lot of people have suggested that the film’s black and white color is a »

Epix to Show the Color Version of Nebraska that Director Alexander Payne Wanted Buried

6 August 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Nebraska was one of my favorite films last year, and one of the reasons is the striking black-and-white cinematography.  Aside from it just being straight-up gorgeous, it also helps put us in the mindset of a part of the country's that been left behind.  It's a colorless world, but that doesn't make it any less beautiful.  However, some people can't stand black-and-white movies, and those people apparently live overseas, so director Alexander Payne was obligated to make a color version that he thought would only be seen in small markets like Moldova, Sierra Leone and Laos.  He thought wrong, and was surprised as anyone to find out that the color version will be airing in the U.S. on Sunday. Hit the jump for more. Thompson on Hollywood discovered that the premium channel Epix is airing TV spots with the following copy: "Nominated for six Academy awards, including Best Actor, »

You Can See The Color Version Of Alexander Payne's 'Nebraska' On Epix This Weekend

6 August 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Getting a movie made about an elderly father and his mild mannered son on a road trip to collect non-existent lottery winnings is very likely a tough sell to a Hollywood big shot. Getting a movie made about an elderly father and his mild mannered son on a road trip to collect non-existent lottery winnings in black and white is near impossible. Alexander Payne managed to convince the right people at Paramount to fund "Nebraska," but with a caveat: He agreed to produce a color version to help the studio interest cable networks and other non-theatrical venues. "We were asked by Paramount, as one of the conditions to shooting in B&W… to also deliver a color version, so I was restricted from using B&W film stock," cinematographer Phedon Papamichael told Indiewire earlier this year. "We ended up shooting digital because my digital intermediate process in post was supposed »

‘Nebraska’ Will Be Broadcast In Color, Disregarding Alexander Payne’s Wishes

Before he even shot the film, Alexander Payne discussed the struggles of getting Paramount to help fund Nebraska in his intended black-and-white aesthetic. With a reduced budget, they finally agreed and the film, tracking Bruce Dern‘s character and his journey to redeem a supposed sweepstakes-winning notice, ended up being one of our favorites of last year.

Nebraska To Be Shown In Color, Despite Alexander Payne's Best Wishes

5 August 2014 8:33 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In his later years, filmmaker Orson Welles bore witness to an atrocity he probably saw as the most denigrating compromise between art and commerce. That atrocity was the colorization of classic films, a phenomenon that none other than media giant Ted Turner was a huge champion of. As if he were predicting Turner's unsuccessful future bid to colorize his own baby, Citizen Kane, he issued a warning to fellow filmmaker Henry Jaglom: "Keep Ted Turner and his goddamn Crayolas away from my movies." Now, 25 years after that battle for art was won, someone else has broken out the "goddamn Crayolas" and decided to air Alexander Payne's Nebraska in full color. SlashFilm broke the news that Epix Network, the cable channel with the rights to premiere Nebraska on television, is going to be running the film twice in a row this Sunday night. At 8 Pm, the film will be »

Despite Alexander Payne’s Wishes, ‘Nebraska’ Will Be Broadcast in Color on Epix

We don’t see many new films produced in black and white, and even fewer that get major studio distribution. And even then, there’s often a color version kept in reserve for use in certain markets. Such was the case with Alexander Payne‘s Nebraska, released last winter. Payne had to cut the budget of the film […]

Color Version of ‘Nebraska’ to Air on Epix

5 August 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As part of its premiere of Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” Paramount Pictures-owned television network Epix is scheduled to show the film on Sunday not only in its theatrical black-and-white format, but also in its currently undistributed color form.

A video on the Epix website teases the color premiere of the Oscar-nominated movie.

Payne had previously said that a color version had been made for specific television outlets in countries such as Moldova and Sierra Leone in which television deals had “only color” stipulations, though he had hoped that no one would ever see it.

“To give them credit, the executives I was dealing with claimed, and I believe them, they really did want me to make the film in black and white, but the front office had major doubts because of money left on the table — that a black-and-white film seems ghettoized into being artsy-fartsy for the theatergoing viewers, »
