31 minutes ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde horror thriller has deadly debut while 'Fifty Shades of Grey' gets increasingly colorless (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') Despite recent news that human head transplants are a mere two years away, the low-budget horror movie The Lazarus Effect – about bringing the dead back to life (as if world overpopulation weren't already a problem) – is expected to take in less than $10 million from 2,666 venues on opening weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, in the U.S. and Canada. With a dismal 13% approval rating and 4/10 average at Rotten Tomatoes, the Relativity Studios-distributed flick starring Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde earned an estimated $3.8 million on Friday, including $350,000 from Thursday night screenings.

Kristen Stewart continues her own path with new Kelly Reichardt film

15 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Did you know that Kristen Stewart made history a week ago? The 24-year-old actress became the first American woman to win a prestigious Cesar Award, France's own version of the Academy Award. She also won it for an English-speaking role.  Think about that for a second.  This honor hasn't been bestowed upon Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Sigourney Weaver, Natalie Portman, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon or any other globally acclaimed American actress over the past 30 years. No, it was Kristen Stewart who broke the French's reticence to reward anyone but their own.  Stewart, an actress who continues to (mostly) put studio work behind her following a string of acclaimed performance in indie films over the past year.  That career path continues with her next endeavor, the "Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project," In case the name is unfamiliar to you, Reichardt is an acclaimed director whose movies include festival favorites "Night Moves," "Meek's Cutoff" and "Wendy and Lucy. »

Mining value from an Oscar win

27 February 2015 1:32 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar win has thrown a new potential star into the ring as players in the independent space hustle to package films for Cannes and beyond.

Sales agents have long bemoaned the small pool of marketable talent that can galvanise pre-sales and represent value around the world.

The British actor’s Oscar coronation last Sunday for his lead role in The Theory Of Everything offers an opportunity to broaden the range of available star power in non-studio projects.

Indeed Redmayne and Oscar nominee and Birdman star Michael Keaton were on almost every talent list scrutinised by sales agents in the run-up to the Efm in Berlin.

Now every sales agent in the business will be approaching Redmayne’s representatives to see if he would be suited to whichever projects they may be sizing up.

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »
