Dick Smith Dead: ‘Godfather of Makeup’ Dies at 92

31 July 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dick Smith, known as the “Godfather of Makeup,” has died at age 92. Smith’s protege, Rick Baker, tweeted of the legend’s passing on Thursday morning.

The master is gone. My friend and mentor Dick Smith is no longer with us. The world will not be the same.

Rick Baker (@TheRickBaker) July 31, 2014

The legendary makeup artist was renowned for his realistic transformations in films like “The Godfather” and “Amadeus” — aging Marlon Brando into Don Corleone and F. Murray Abraham into a wizened Antonio Salieri — garnering an Academy Award for his work in the latter alongside Paul LeBlanc. In 2012, Smith was given an honorary Governor’s Academy Award for his contribution to the field, which was presented by Baker. Earlier this year, Smith received the Makeup Artists Lifetime Achievement Award at the Makeup Artists and Hair Stylist Guild Awards. He also won a Primetime Emmy in 1967 for his work on Hal Holbrook’s “Mark Twain Tonight! »

Peter Jackson Revamps 3rd Hobbit Movie Title – The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

26 April 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema jointly announced on Friday that the much-anticipated final film in Peter Jackson’s trilogy adaptation of the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, has now been titled The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies.

The film, previously titled “The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” will be released worldwide December 17, 2014, with select international territories releasing on December 10, 2014.

Peter Jackson stated, “Our journey to make ‘The Hobbit’ Trilogy has been in some ways like Bilbo’s own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we’ve gone along. ‘There and Back Again’ felt like the right name for the second of a two-film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced — after all, Bilbo has already arrived »

Exclusive Interview: Director Paul Campion on 'The Devil's Rock' and Adapting Brian Keene

21 March 2014 | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

If you haven't yet seen The Devil's Rock, a WWII-based horror film that marked the feature debut for New Zealand director and Weta Workshop special effects artist Paul Campion, you've missed a dark, gruesome and intense tale that feels like it's torn straight from the pages of the classic horror comics... although it's actually based in part on historic events, along with some chilling occult lore. Here's the trailer:     I was introduced to Campion recently (by Bane of Yoto author Josh Viola), and I found out he's got tons more amazing horror projects in the pipe – most notably a feature adaptation of Brian Keene's acclaimed horror novel Dark Hollow. Naturally, I had to learn more about that, as well as Paul's amazing short films, and he graciously offered us the scoop.   Fearnet: For those who haven't yet seen The Devil's Rock, can you explain the genesis of that project? »

‘Blue Jasmine,’ ‘Hunger Games’ Among Costume Design Winners

22 February 2014 10:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elaborate designs and covetable fashion were the focuses of the 2014 Costume Designers Guild Awards on February 22 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where winners included “Behind the Candelabra’s” Ellen Mirojnick, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s” Trish Summerville, “House of Cards’” Tom Broecker, and “Blue Jasmine’s” Suzy Benzinger.

This is all a little ironic, Cdg president Salvador Perez joked his opening remarks.

“As costume designers, we take on the formidable task of dressing thousands of actors for a crowd scene or giving an actor 30 changes for one 30-minute episode of television,” the “Mindy Project” costume designer said. “Even though we can pull it off on a daily basis, let’s be honest. When it comes to dressing ourselves, the shoemakers’ children have no shoes. My tuxedo hem? Safety pins and Topstick.”

Steve McQueen's drama 12 Years a Slave may have walked away with the top prize, fending off competition from American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Philomena and Gravity to win Best Film, but it was also a great night for Alfonso Cuaron's space-set thriller, which walked away with six awards including Best Director and Outstanding British Film.

2014 BAFTA Award Winners Led by '12 Years a Slave' and 'Gravity'

17 February 2014 6:38 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 BAFTA Awards took place, hosted by Stephen Fry from London's Royal Opera House and it was 12 Years a Slave taking Best Film and Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor while Gravity was honored for Outstanding British Film and Alfonso Cuaron was named Best Director. Interestingly enough, 12 Years a Slave only won the two awards while Gravity was the night's biggest winner taking home an additional four awards in technical categories, including Score (Steven Price) and Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki). It's interesting to see a list of winners where Dallas Buyers Club wasn't nominated for a single award considering its two main characters played by Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto are, more or less, considered locks to win Best Actor and Supporting Actor. As for the BAFTA Awards, it was Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) taking Best Supporting Actor and while Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) added another Best Actress award to »

Ring Master: Matt Aitken talks about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Trevor Hogg chats with Matt Aitken about a shape-shifter, Elves who live underground, and the awakening of a dragon named Smaug...

Matt Aitken“We grew fast at the beginning of Weta Digital and by that stage there wasn’t the expertise within the country to grow the company as fast as we had to,” explains Weta Digital Visual Effects Supervisor Matt Aitken who was one of the native New Zealanders working for the company during the production of The Lord of the Ringstrilogy.  “But since the time of Rings we have been actively working recruiting local graduates.  We have our own in-house training program and the percentage of the crew that is Kiwi is growing all of the time.”  The opportunity to pursue visual effects as a career enabled the Oscar nominee to merge his different interests.  “I pursued Mathematics as my first degree and have always been interested in »

Fun Times at 2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

17 January 2014 8:55 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

I had a great time at last night's Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. I'm a proud voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and I always look forward to our Movie Awards!

It was a great night with an equally great party vibe, and all the stars were relaxed as they imbibe on cocktails and eat fantastic food.

But the best part of the evening was the awards show itself (I always feel that the Critics' Choice is a much better Oscar predictor than the Golden Globes) where Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" triumphed in all the technical categories including Best Director and "12 Years a Slave" received the top honor of Best Picture with Lupita Nyong'o beating "American Hustle's" Jennifer Lawrence for the Best Supporting Actress trophy.

My favorite part of the awards show? The love given to Matthew McConaughey for Best Actor »
