Martin Scorsese to Teach First-Ever Online Filmmaking Class

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese is launching an internet-based course in making movies — his first foray into e-learning.

The Oscar-winning director will debut the class in early 2018 through online-education startup MasterClass. The class costs $90 for unlimited access to more than 20 video lessons; pre-enrollment is available starting Friday at masterclass.com/ms.

In addition to the videos, Scorsese’s MasterClass course will include a downloadable workbook with lesson recaps and supplemental material. Students enrolled in the class will be able to upload video questions to Scorsese, who will provide feedback to select students.

“I was excited by this project because it gave me a chance to pass down my own inspirations and experiences and practices and evolutions,” Scorsese said in a statement, “not as a blueprint for how to make movies but as a guidepost, an offering to young people attempting to find their own way.”

'Kingsman' and 'LEGO Ninjago' Ready to Add to September's Record Pace

21 September 2017 1:20 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

September 2017 is currently pacing 15.6% ahead of 2016 with a calendar gross of $467.3 million, putting the month on a record pace, $48 million ahead of where 2015 was at the same time period before delivering $626.4 million, the largest September calendar gross ever. Almost half of September's total at this point is thanks to Warner Bros. and New Line's It, which is looking to do strong numbers again this weekend, but will fall from its #1 perch after two straight weeks on top. Debuting in wide release this weekend is Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle and it should have enough juice to take the weekend top spot while Warner Animation Group's The LEGO Ninjago Movie is looking to finish in the runner-up position. Entertainment Studios' is going social with the R-rated horror Friend Request debuting in just over 2,500 theaters and likely to finish in the top five (albeit with minimal returns) while Roadside Attractions is »

Hillary Clinton’s Craziest Pop Culture References in ‘What Happened’: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Veep,’ and More

38 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You can tell a lot about a person by the television they watch and the books they read — even while they reveal their theories as to why they lost a Presidential election.

Clinton’s new memoir, “What Happened,” chronicling her experiences surrounding the 2016 election, is surprisingly candid on a number of levels. For example, regarding her coping mechanisms following the loss of the election, “It wasn’t all yoga and breathing: I also drank my share of chardonnay.”

But even more fascinating are the ways in which she invokes current pop culture. Some of the references feel more forced than others. Some of them are truly bonkers.

This is not a complete list of every reference made, as we omitted some of the religious, spiritual, and historical texts upon which she drew to make her points. Instead, here is all the evidence you need that the Clintons know their way around a TV remote, »

‘Get Out’ Hits the Oscar Campaign Trail With a Timely Hamptons Event

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Did Oscar season actually start in February? When Jordan Peele’s feature directorial debut “Get Out” opened in late February (not typically a release date space that hosts zeitgeist-smashing hits), few could have expected that the social thriller would not only be a success with critics (the film still sits at a 99% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes) but also a huge moneymaker, pulling in over $252 million at the global box office. Next up? An awards campaign. Chatter surrounding the film’s awards possibilities kicked up early, and the trick has been keeping it up though these many months. One way to do that? A special event at a festival known for its love of award movies. “Get Out” is already into it.

Peele and his film are set for a timely Hamptons International Film Festival appearance later this month, when the festival runs October 5 – 9 in and around East Hampton, NY. »
