'Everest': Venice Review

1 hour ago

For the 99.999 percent of us who will never climb Mount Everest, the new 3D Imax drama Everest provides plenty of vividly illustrated reasons to rationalize leaving it off one's bucket list.

New Oscars Producer David Hill Promises "Up-Close-and-Personal Approach"

10 hours ago

David Hill was surprised when he got a call to meet with Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs and CEO Dawn Hudson. The former chairman of Fox Sports, who the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Monday will produce the 88th Oscars alongside filmmaker Reginald Hudlin, has had plenty of practice overseeing live sports events. But, he freely admits, “my knowledge of film was, at best, sketchy.”  Twentieth Century Fox chairman Jim Gianopulos, who sits on the Academy’s board of governors, had first spoken with Hill about taking on the Oscar show producing assignment. Yet when a meeting with Boone Isaacs and Hudson was
