Bryan Cranston Opens Up About His 'Out on a Limb' Acting Style and New Movie The Infiltrator

14 July 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bryan Cranston is not afraid to go all out for a role; look no further than Walter White's wrath in Breaking Bad or Hal's myriad breakdowns in Malcolm in the Middle. According to Cranston, pushing the limit is just part of his process for any character, including those based on real-life people like President Lyndon B. Johnson, Dalton Trumbo or undercover agent Robert Mazur in The Infiltrator. "When I start taking on a character, I basically put it in this analogy," Cranston tells Entertainment Weekly and People editorial director Jess Cagle in the most recent episode of The Jess Cagle Interview. »

Looking For Albert Brooks In The Netflix World

10 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

In the hierarchy of significance in what made news this past week, the sudden availability of the entirety of Albert Brooks’ output of feature films as a writer-director via Netflix Streaming may not carry the urgency of, say, the alarming continuance of African-American deaths under police fire, the attack on a peaceful protest against police violence by shooters who killed five law enforcement officers and wounded several more in Dallas, the ongoing partisan bloviating inspired by the FBI’s decision to not charge Hilary Clinton with federal crimes, or the frightening clown circus of offenses that characterizes the dawning of each new day in Donald Trump’s  presidential campaign. But art can, among many other things, provide a momentary respite from pain, sometimes even while examining some of the more frustrating, self-centric and petty dissonances within our own, or someone’s else’s worldview, and in this Brooks’ films at »

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

New to Streaming: ‘Knight of Cups,’ ‘Mountains May Depart,’ ’45 Years,’ ‘Eye in the Sky,’ and More

17 June 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary. »

Cinema Gadfly – Episode 20 – The Front

2 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

My guest for this month is West Anthony, and he’s joined me to discuss the film he chose for me, the 1976 comedy-drama film The Front. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

Not sure what happened to the audio in the introduction, apologies! The Hollywood blacklist is a term for the treatment of people in the entertainment industry who refused to name names to the House Un-American Activities Committee from 1947 to 1960 For a more in depth take on the blacklist, check out the latest season of the phenomenal You Must Remember This podcast WonderCon is a comic book convention that was held annually in Sf until it was cruelly moved to the La area in 2012. Yes I’m still bitter about it. West also recommends the Gabrielle de Cuir directed Thirty Years of Treason by Eric Bentley Among the people famously blacklisted were Lillian Hellman, Lionel Stander, »

Karlovy Vary Film Festival Pays Tribute to Female Mexican Directors, Otto Preminger

26 April 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Karlovy Vary Intl. Film Festival, which plays July 1-9, will put the spotlight on the current generation of Mexican female directors, and also plans to run a tribute to Otto Preminger.

Festival artistic director Karel Och said: “Kviff’s special tributes will once again become an exciting meeting point between the modern and the classic. The festival will highlight the vital creativity of contemporary Mexico’s young female directors, and will remember, three decades after his passing, the visionary genius of Otto Preminger, a fellow Central European who conquered the United States with his overpowering charm and unflagging advocacy for freedom of artistic expression.“

The focus on women directors from Mexico includes nine films from the past five years. The festival highlights the founding of the Imcine film institute in 1983 as of “undeniable importance to the increase of female directors in Mexico.” It was this organization, the fest says, »

Exodus

8 April 2016 8:18 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

"This land is mine, God made this land for me." Those are just song lyrics, while Otto Preminger's politically daring 70mm mega-production is a lot more subtle in its presentation of the 'Palestinian problem' that led to the formation of the State of Israel. It's a bit ponderous, but Dalton Trumbo's screenplay avoids the pitfalls -- 56 years later, the story is still relevant. Exodus Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1960 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 208 min. / Ship Date March 15, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint, Ralph Richardson, Peter Lawford, Lee J.

Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart in Talks to Star in ‘Intouchables’ Remake

30 March 2016 1:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart are in talks to star in the Weinstein Co.’s “The Intouchables,” a remake of the 2011 Olivier Nakache/Eric Toledano French dramedy.

Sources have exclusively told Variety that Simon Curtis is attached to direct the remake.

The original was released by the Weinstein Co. in 2011, grossing $416 million overseas. The movie follows an aristocrat who, after becoming a paraplegic following a paragliding accident, hires a young man from the projects to be his caregiver.

The Weinstein Co. quickly acquired the remake rights and set Paul Feig to pen the script. The film is high priority for the studio, with shooting expected to start this summer.

Cranston is coming off his Oscar-nominated performance for his portrayal of blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in Jay Roach’s “Trumbo.” He can be seen next in HBO’s “All the Way,” a telepic based on his play in which he portrays Lyndon B. Johnson. »

Jason Blum, Eli Roth-Backed Crypt TV Eyes Expansion

28 March 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A year after its launch, Crypt TV is plotting an expansion, bulking up its staff and bringing on partners in order to create more short-form horror content.

Its staff will grow from four to seven people, and the plan is to begin working with studio collaborators and other distribution platforms such as video-on-demand and over-the-top services. Currently the bulk of Crypt TV’s content is accessed via its Facebook page, although the digital genre network has done some exclusive Snapchat programming, such as a live murder mystery it produced last fall.

Backed by “Purge” producer Jason Blum’s company Blumhouse Productions and “Hostel” director Eli Roth, the company has focused on making content that is typically less than three minutes in duration. This year, the fruits of their labor have added up to over 250 pieces of original content.

The network was created to fill a gap in the kind of viral videos being made. »

Artist Spotlight: BeastPop

11 March 2016 10:21 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

My name is Jared, aka BeastPop (with my brand name being BeastWreck), and I make illustrations and designs featuring all the stuff I like, ranging from cartoon monsters and beasts to horror-themed artwork. I sell these designs on a bunch of stuff like shirts, mugs, and art prints through my various web shops, and I mess around with character design when I can.

I prefer to work traditionally with some good ol’ fashioned pencils, pens, and brushes on illustration paper — pencil sketching with graphite or colored pencils, and inking with an assortment of pens and watercolor brushes with india ink. I will often digitally ink for convenience sake, however, and most of my coloring work is done digitally.

I drew all the time as a kid, filling up reams of paper, and drawing on the walls, etc, but I didn’t really take it seriously as a potential profession until much later in life. »

The Oscars don’t matter and we all need to stop caring

Luke Owen on last night’s Oscars…

If Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, then Awards Season is the most loathsome as a film fan. It’s the time of year that a group of out-of-touch Hollywood professionals all gather round to lay their hand down on what they think was the best film released in the last four months, and industry experts and film lovers parade around social media giving their predictions on who and what they think will walk away with the tiny gold statue as if it actually mattered. This shameful circle jerk charade happens year after year and with each passing 365 days Awards Season becomes more of a farce.

The Oscars are the worst for it, but that’s only because the other two major American awards ceremonies have already been forgotten about. The Golden Globes showed themselves to be worthless when it »
