Oscar Actors predictions: Daniel Day-Lewis or John Hawkes or Hugh Jackman or Joaquin Phoenix or Denzel Washington or ? by Clayton Davis

5 August 2012 12:02 PM, PDT

HollywoodNews.com: Oscar Predicitons, how I love thee yet how I hate thee. As I revealed the newest set of predictions this time around and took a look at the next five months, I haven't dived into serious awards analysis in a while. A lot of the reason was I felt it was too early and we didn't know enough. I had an epiphany recently however; we never know what the Oscars are thinking. Even after critics? awards drop, Golden Globes, SAG, Critics Choice Awards are televised; all mean nothing at the end of the day. Oscar will always do what she wants to do, even when everyone is telling her the obvious choices. Granted, I am one of the few that thinks they can actually pick some great choices among their winners. I was and still am in the camp that Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist was the best film of last year. »

Oprah is pushing a new guru! by Roger Friedman

5 August 2012 10:18 AM, PDT

I don’t know how she does it: it was only six years ago that Oprah Winfrey was touting new age nut Eckhart Tolle as the all time genius of the world. He was her spiritual mentor. Winfrey actually ran podcasts and internet classes with the guy who has since quietly vanished from the spotlight. Now, maybe because she’s in her own personal crisis with her Own network, Oprah is pushing a new guru. (She still hawks Marianne Williamson.) This guy is named Michael Singer, author of a book called “The Untethered Soul.” But Michael Singer is indeed better known in his hometown of Alachua, Florida as Mickey Singer. And in 2005 he was indicted in a massive government fraud case against his company Medical Manager Health Systems, which was an offshoot of WebMD. http://www.gainesville.com/article/20051216/Local/212160339 Singer was accused with nine others of inflating Medical Manager Health Systems profits, »

Brad Pitt’s “Killing Them Softly” Trailer by Scott Mendelson

5 August 2012 10:00 AM, PDT

HollywoodNews.com: This is a terrific trailer for what is allegedly a terrific little crime drama. . I'd argue that it's a net positive in this case. I've long argued that I'd rather see certain movies go completely without women that shoe-horn a random pretty girl (often played by an actress who should be getting better roles) in order to provide a token romantic subplot and/or an easy way to make one low-life more sympathetic than another (Ryan Gosling has a crush on Cary Mulligan in Drive, which makes him the 'hero' by default). Obviously the best case scenario would be actually having well-written female characters that aren't love interests, even in macho crime pictures like this (why not give James Gandolfini's part to Melissa Leo?). But barring that, I'd much prefer to see a 'strictly business' sausage fest versus something like (random example) The Killer Elite which wastes »

The Dark Knight Rises topped the weekend box office again with $36 million. by Scott Mendelson

5 August 2012 9:43 AM, PDT

HollywoodNews.com:In the face of two relatively non-mighty openers, The Dark Knight Rises (review/spoiler-review) topped the weekend box office again with $36 million. As has been the case throughout the film's much-debated run (which is really only 17 days old), it's doing pretty spectacular by any logical standard but must be defended from those who think it automatically should have topped The Dark Knight and/or challenged The Avengers. The film has $354 million after three weekends, versus The Dark Knight ($393 million) and The Avengers ($457 million). It's the third-biggest 17-day total of all-time, closely surpassing Avatar ($352 million) as the third-fastest film to reach $350 million. It will crack $400 million in two or three weekends (surely the fourth-fastest movie to do so if it can in less than Shrek 2's 43 days) and anything after that is merely bragging rights. It may or may not crack $1 billion worldwide, with around $700 million so far and holding up relatively well. »

The Master by Paul Thomas Anderson: The verdict is in “brilliant” by Clayton Davis

4 August 2012 11:45 AM, PDT

by: Joey Magidson HollywoodNews.com: Last night, a lucky group of audience members in Santa Monica were treated by none other than Paul Thomas Anderson himself to being the first to see his latest film ‘The Master’. It came after a screening of ‘The Shining’ and was in 70mm, no less. Sites like The Playlist have collected some of the early words on the flick, and suffice to say that they’re through the roof for pretty much all involved. After the jump you can see some of the first reactions that hit the web, and take not that they’re not from my colleagues in the business but just film lovers who were in the right place at the right time. That makes this very interesting in my eyes. Here’s some of the responses from Twitter: “Possibly the best film watching experience I’ve ever had. #THEMASTER70MM »

Russell Brand documentary details drug past by Molly Sullivan

4 August 2012 10:25 AM, PDT

HollywoodNews.com: The new BBC TV documentary 'Russell Brand: From Addiction to Recovery' will show fans of the actor and comedienne a different and darker side than they might be used to. The documentary will reportedly have real-life footage of Brand when he was in his 20s and addicted to drugs, states RadarOnline. And footage of Brand seeing the past makes it very clear how strong his drug addiction is now. "This is when you know it's a disease. It doesn't matter that I was sat in that flat in Hackney and now I'm in the Savoy. I'm jealous of me then," Brand comments while watching the footage. Brand has been clean for ten years, but it is apparently a very hard struggle: "It doesn't make a difference to me. The money, the fame, the power, the sex, the women - none of it. I'd rather be a drug addict. »

Paul Thomas Anderson surprises California audience with “The Master” screening by Sean O'Connell

4 August 2012 8:21 AM, PDT

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: The Venice and Toronto film festivals put feathers in their caps by being able to program Paul Thomas Anderson’s highly-anticipated “The Master” into their fall events. But knowing PTA – and his adoration for true cinema fans – he had something special up his sleeve, which was revealed Friday night in Santa Monica. Anderson screened his film, in full, following a retrospective screening of Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” at the American Cinematheque in Southern California. Patrons attending the screening were told that there would be a second movie screening after the Kubrick classic, according to HitFix, but they had no idea it would be PTA’s drama until it screened. The AC screening allowed Anderson (who attended with his wife, Maya Rudolph) to screen “The Master” in his preferred format, 70mm. This near-insistence is causing headaches with exhibitors as the film prepares its fall theatrical release. »
