San Sebastian: Fermin Muguruza Preps Singular Animation Debut ‘Black Is Beltza’ (Exclusive)

22 September 2016 4:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian — Talka Records & Films and Catalonia’s Setmagic Audiovisual are teaming  to produce adult animation feature “Black is Beltza,” which marks the fiction film debut of the Basque multi-hyphenate artist, one of the most individual of Basque talents.

The production announcement comes as Muguruza’s latest work “Nola?,” world preemed Tuesday 20 at San Sebastian in the Zinemira Basque Country sidebar. “Nola?” explores New Orleans -its music, people, death  culture – ten years on from the hurricane Katrina through a singular music fusion of New Orleans rhythms with Muguruza’s Basque funk-rock.

Launched at Berlin’s European Film Market this year,— Summerside International, Amsterdam-based Francesca Manno and Nicola Tassoni’s sales house, has taken all international rights for “Nola?,” closing the deal at the San Sebastian Fest.

“Black is Beltza” kicks off in October 1965 when a group of giants and carnival heads, inspired by seventeenth century parades in Pamplona, is  invited »

‘The Voice’ Premiere Recap: Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys Make Debut as Coaches

19 September 2016 7:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When one hears that Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are joining “The Voice” as coaches in Season 11, it’s difficult to not have flashbacks to when “American Idol” welcomed Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey for its twelfth season — a chemistry experiment that, without getting into too many details, exploded.

More than that, in unscripted television, having two women on a judging panel (let alone in the same room) is traditionally a setup for a cat fight. Showdowns between Tyra Banks and Janice DickinsonBritney Spears and Demi Lovato; even “The Voice” has made headlines and become tabloid fodder for conflict between two female judges who haven’t even appeared on the same season.

But during the first night of the two-night premiere, Cyrus and Keys brought class, professionalism, insight and personality. The two women joined the show’s “winningest coaches” — which really means the only two judges who have stayed on the show since the first season »

Review: Cinemax goes back to the '70s for the super-pulpy 'Quarry'

8 September 2016 11:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I used to keep a tally of what I referred to as "doughnut shows," which were empty in the middle, thanks to a boring main character, but delicious on the outside. But in a recent conversation with my pal Maureen Ryan, as I listed some examples of that phenomenon — your Once and Agains, your Huffs — she pointed out that I had the food metaphor all wrong. These were not doughnut shows, she pointed out, because while the main characters were less exciting than the second bananas, they also weren't completely without value in their own right. These were, she explained, tofu shows: "Like, put tofu in a good sauce with other stuff and I will forgive it for being tofu? It doesn't have much taste on its own, but it's all about everything around it pulling focus from it and actually supplying the flavor." Perhaps the greatest tofu show of all time was Boardwalk Empire, »

Review: 'The People V. O.J. Simpson' gives 'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia' a fair trial

8 March 2016 8:11 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on tonight's The People v. O.J. Simpson coming up just as soon as my stylist turns me into Rick James... How appropriate that we get to wrap up International Women's Day with "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia," The People v. O.J.'s sympathetic mash note to doomed O.J. prosecutor Marcia Clark. It's not straight-up hagiography, as it points out various mistakes Clark made during this period — continuing to dismiss Darden's concerns about letting Mark Fuhrman testify, taking a big stand in court about needing to get home to her kids and then asking her husband to watch them that night (a move that she had to know would blow up in her face, given the contentiousness of the divorce and her new hugely public identity) — but it also illustrates the many challenges she had to face throughout the trial that none of her male counterparts did.

'Pretty in Pink': 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the John Hughes Classic

26 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Thirty years have passed since the release of "Pretty in Pink" (on February 28, 1986), and yet we're still bewildered by the teen romance's climax.

Maybe we need to think of the John Hughes-scripted film as Gen X's own "Casablanca." The ending makes more sense if you think of Duckie (Jon Cryer) as Humphrey Bogart, letting the woman he loves (Molly Ringwald's Andie) go off with the dull-but-decent guy (Andrew McCarthy's Blane) because he's finally admitted to himself that he's a chivalrous romantic who values her happiness above his own. Yeah, it's a stretch, but it's just one of many interpretations to spin out of this Hughes classic.

In honor of the film turning the big three-0, here are 15 surprising facts about the best movie ever named after a Psychedelic Furs song.

1. Hughes wrote the role of Andie Walsh for Ringwald, but even though she'd starred in his »

Pretty in Pink isn't just a good '80s movie. It isn't just a good teen movie. And it isn't just a good romantic movie. It's just a good movie, period. The John Hughes classic first hit theaters on Feb. 28, 1986, and it turns 30 years old this weekend. The film featured Molly Ringwald as Andie, a high school student whose style belies her working class roots. She's captured the eye of seemingly every guy in school - among them, preppy dreamboat Blane (Andrew McCarthy) and her little hipster buddy, Duckie (Jon Cryer). And the process of Ringwald's character trying to figure »

HBO Wants More Rock 'n Roll, Renews 'Vinyl' For Season 2

18 February 2016 1:56 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, that was fast. After a big, Martin Scorsese-directed, two-hour series premiere on Sunday, HBO has determined they like the song they're hearing from Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter, and Mick Jagger. The network has renewed "Vinyl" for a second season. The rock 'n roll series has been met with mostly positive reviews (though we weren't particularly enamoured with it), and given how much the network has clearly put into the show, including weekly Ep releases for each episode, and a clearly lavish budget, I would've been surprised if they didn't go for at least one more season.  Read More: Soundtrack For Martin Scorsese's HBO Series 'Vinyl' Includes Otis Redding, The Meters, Edgar Winter, Foghat, More "Vinyl" airs on Sunday nights.

Listen: Soundtrack To Martin Scorsese's HBO Series 'Vinyl,' Plus New Featurettes And Interview With Terence Winter

12 February 2016 9:54 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This weekend, HBO is getting very rock 'n roll, with the two-hour, Martin Scorsese-directed season premiere of "Vinyl." The show takes viewers into the gritty realm of the 1970s music industry, following a record label honcho who makes his way through the sex and drug-riddled world, searching for the next big sound. The cast for this one is impressive, featuring Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Juno Temple, James Jagger, and many more. It's been a long journey, with the show's executive producer and writer Terence Winter sharing that the project has been brewing for over a decade.
