Directors Share The Best Piece of Advice They Received at The Sundance Labs

15 July 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Following in the footsteps of alums like Quentin Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson and Ryan Coogler, eight up-and-coming directors just completed the Sundance Directors Lab. For four weeks these directing fellows worked with actors and production crews to shoot and edit key scenes from their screenplays. Throughout the process they were mentored, working one-on-one with creatives advisors as they made key discoveries about their scripts, collaborated with actors and found a visual storytelling language for their films.

Sundance’s creative advisors include an impressive list of great filmmakers and teachers, including Robert Redford himself, who return to Park City to mentor the new class of directors. We recently asked this year’s fellows what was the best piece of advice they received and who gave it to them.

Everything you need to know about the 'Ghostbusters' reboot is right here

8 July 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ever since the all-woman main cast was announced for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, haters both sexist and non- have been burning the film on social media. Fun fact: the movie's first trailer is the most disliked in YouTube history, with over 900,000 “thumbs down” to just over 200,000 “thumbs up.” Hmm, wonder if that has anything to do with gender? In any event, here’s a nice 2 ½ minute video primer on the forthcoming reboot, which covers all the misogyny-driven outrage (“I don’t support the new ‘female Ghostbusters’ because they’ll just have their periods on to the ghosts,” wrote one delightful Twitter user), the first cut's Gone with the Wind-level running time (4 hours, 15 minutes!) and that awful, awful official theme song by Fall Out Boy feat. Missy Elliott (we don't blame Missy, by the way). Watch the video above and below. »

For most of her career, two-time Academy Award winner Olivia de Havilland was embroiled in a rivalrous feud with younger sister Joan Fontaine. Now, the woman who celebrated her 100th birthday last Friday opens up to People about their prolonged estrangement, as she describes Fontaine as "brilliant and very gifted," but essentially flawed. "She was a brilliant person, very gifted and, alas, [had] an astigmatism in her perception of both people and situations, which could cause and did cause great distress in others," she tells People of Fontaine, who died in Dec. 2013 at the age of 96.

Remembering Michael Cimino, Dead at 77

2 July 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It had been a long time since I was in the same room with director Michael Cimino. My first job out of Nyu Cinema Studies was in the publicity department at United Artists in New York, where I witnessed the long delays on Cimino’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning 1978 anti-war diatribe “The Deer Hunter,” the period western “Heaven’s Gate.”

The director got caught up in chasing authenticity in the myriad details of the production, training for weeks the cast led by Kris Kristofferson and Isabelle Huppert to roller-skate for one scene — and demanding endless retakes until he shot more feet of film, over 1 million, than even Francis Coppola did on another memorably out-of-control UA movie, “Apocalypse Now.” The original $11 million budget bloated to $32 million (Cimino’s figure), as recounted in Steven Bach’s “Final Cut: Art, Money and Ego in the Making of ‘Heaven’s Gate.’

Happy birthday Olivia de Havilland! Hollywood’s queen of radiant calm turns 100

30 June 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Gone With the Wind star, known for her lifelong feud with her sister as much as the bewitching brilliance of her acting, celebrates her centenary

Olivia de Havilland established herself forever in the film world’s collective memory at the age of 22, as the wise, gentle and beautiful Melanie Hamilton in the colossal epic Gone With the Wind. The film appeared in 1939 as war was breaking out in Europe: the mighty theme of old orders being swept away was especially potent. De Havilland was an exemplar of radiant womanly calmness, a polar opposite to the capricious sexiness of Vivien Leigh’s bewitching belle Scarlett O’Hara. The role probably encumbered her with something stately and reserved, which she never entirely lost – though with a hint of mystery and suppressed emotional tumult, on screen and off. Because, however sedate her image, De Havilland was the subject of two of the »

Olivia de Havilland Turns 100: How ‘Gone With the Wind’s’ True Rebel Fought the Studio System and Won

30 June 2016 2:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

July 1 marks the 100th birthday of Olivia de Havilland, an actress who made Hollywood history in more ways than one. She is best remembered as Melanie in the 1939 “Gone With the Wind,” as well as her roles opposite Errol Flynn, including “The Adventures of Robin Hood”; she’s also one of the few to have won two leading-actress Oscars.

But her influence on the movie industry goes far beyond that: She helped bring an end to the studio system, thanks to her landmark lawsuit against Warner Bros. in 1944.

The actress had made her film debut in 1935, at age 19, in a version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” that starred James Cagney and Mickey Rooney. Eventually WB signed her to a seven-year contract, which was the standard for studios when they wanted to hold onto actors.

The studio suspended her seven or eight times for refusing to play certain roles. When de Havilland’s contract expired, »

Olivia De Havilland Turning 100: An Appreciation Of A Golden Age Icon

30 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Olivia de Havilland, the last surviving grande dame of Classic Hollywood, turns 100 tomorrow. The last time I saw her she was a spry 86, bounding up the stairs of her house in Paris' 16th arrondissement and with no signs of slowing. Reflecting on that, it seems hardly surprising that this formidable woman is celebrating a century on the planet. Long after she left Hollywood in 1956, the mark De Havilland made on the town remains. A star of Gone With The Wind and a double… »

Renée Zellweger: If She No Longer Looks Like Herself, Has She Become a Different Actress?

30 June 2016 9:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s a ritual of our vanity-fueled image culture. You go to see a movie that features an actress or actor — in most cases it’s an actress — you know well, and somehow she looks…different. Her nose is thinner, or her lips are fuller, or her lips are thinner and her cheeks are bolder, or her forehead is younger, or maybe you can’t even quite put your finger on what the difference is, but you know it’s there. Like everyone else, I’ve had this experience and then followed it with a makeshift seminar of perusing photographs on the Internet, scouring them for the before-and-after truth, which always comes down to one question: Did she or didn’t she?

As familiar as the situation is, though, I was caught off guard the other day when I saw the trailer for “Bridget Jones’s Baby.” The movie’s star, »

Olivia @ 100: The Heiress

24 June 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're counting down to Olivia de Havilland's historic 100th birthday (July 1st!). Team Experience will be looking at highlights and curiosities from her career. Here's Tim...

Olivia de Havilland is more than a living link to the Golden Age of Hollywood, more than a gorgeous movie star, more than a two-time Oscar winner. She's one of the most significant figures in the history of the American film industry: the woman who broke the back of the studio contract system when she successfully sued Warner Bros. for career independence in 1943. As Hollywood's first independent movie star since the silent era, de Havilland was suddenly in a position to make all of her own creative decisions, leading to a string of challenging dramatic roles that didn't simply trade on her good looks and holy innocent persona.

Both of de Havilland's Oscar wins came about thanks to this period of chasing her own projects, »

Free State Of Jones – Review

23 June 2016 10:41 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The historical drama Free State Of Jones is based on a little-known, improbable true event that took place in the American South during the Civil War, when the residents of Jones County, Mississippi, both white and black, seceded from the Confederacy under the leadership of an ex-Confederate soldier and part-time preacher named Newton Knight.

Matthew McConaughey plays Newt Knight, who led an army of fellow white deserters and runaway black slaves who held off Confederate military by hiding out in Jones county’s inaccessible swamp. The film from director Gary Ross (“Seabiscuit”) follows up that dramatic story with another one, a depiction of events in the South following the Civil War, when Knight and his fellow anti-Rebel rebels tried to stand up to the Ku Klux Klan and rising segregation, a period rarely shown in films, and then mostly from the other side in “Gone With The Wind” and the appalling “Birth of a Nation. »

‘Free State of Jones’ Feels Like ‘Cramming for a History Exam at 2 Am’ and 8 Other Merciless Reviews

23 June 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Civil War dramas tend to be critical darlings (i.e. “Gone With the Wind,” “Lincoln,” “12 Years a Slave”) but reviewers are calling Matthew McConaughey’s “Free State of Jones” “tone-deaf” and a “drab drama.” The Stx Entertainment period piece, which opens Friday, currently holds a score of 23 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Director Gary Ross tells the tale of Newton Knight’s armed rebellion against the Confederacy. It cost $50 million to make, and is estimated to make $10 million from 2,815 screens when it opens this weekend. Critics describe the film as a “poorly structure, dubiously focused movie” that makes you feel like. »

Olivia @ 100: The Dark Mirror

We're counting down to Olivia de Havilland's historic 100th birthday (July 1st!). Team Experience will be looking at highlights and curiosities from her career. Here's Jason...

I'm proud of my fellow Film Experience members Dan and Josh for keeping their focus on the films so far in this series, but it seems kind of impossible to talk about Olivia de Havilland's 1946 thriller The Dark Mirror, which has her playing good and evil twins, without diving into the gossipy froth of her legendary lifetime rivalry with sister Joan Fontaine. The Dark Mirror sits somewhere between an exorcism and a single-gloved slap-fight - Fight Club via Film Noir. It offered Olivia the chance to play versions of both her and her sister's popular images, exaggerated and unloosed upon one another.

In a 2015 Time magazine piece on the sisters' feud it's said that Olivia was known for playing "pretty and charming, »

The Most Stylish Men of Hollywood

16 June 2016 10:02 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

When it comes to style in Hollywood you just have to look at the numerous award ceremonies to see it in action. Looking at Hollywood through the years though, we see fashions and styles that have defined eras and stuck in our memories. Here are some men that have managed to stay stylish in a stylish way.

Humphrey Bogart

It is fair to say that many actors alive today would love to have the coolness that oozes out of Humphrey Bogart when we see him on screen. Always in a suit, and sometimes in a trench coat when he was on his Noir style adventures Bogart had it all. Effortlessly cool, Humphrey Bogart is one of the most iconic men ever to grace the silver screen.

Clark Gable

If an actor could match Bogart’s domination of Hollywood style it would have to be Clark Gable. Gone with the Wind »

Hattie McDaniel: Hollywood’s Beloved, Controversial Trailblazer

10 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

June 10 would have been the birthday of Hattie McDaniel, the memorable Oscar winner for “Gone With the Wind” and a Hollywood trailblazer who is remembered with both affection and a little ambivalence.

She was born in Wichita, Kans., in 1895, the youngest of 13 children of two former slaves. Five years later, the family moved to Colorado, where she made her debut on the relatively new medium of radio. She is credited as being the first black woman to sing on the radio, thanks to her gig at age 17 in Denver. She sometimes performed as “Hi-Hat Hattie” and continued singing and doing comedy on radio, in nightclubs and in vaudeville.

She came to Hollywood while in her 30s and appeared uncredited in several works. But the studios took notice with her small but fun role in 1933’s “I’m No Angel,” playing one of Mae West’s maids.

Most Star Wars fans have already combed through every shred of special features available on Star Wars: The Force Awakens Bluray by now, but believe it or not, the film actually just wrapped up its theatrical run not too long ago. After a record breaking release in December, The Force Awakens just kept raking in the money for Disney week after week and only recently left its final theater. Now we can finally see how the film stacked up at the box office.

According to Box Office Mojo, this sci-fi sequel spent a total of 168 days in theaters and made a whole lot of money in that time. Worldwide, the film made $2,068,176,052, which is going to put it at the number 3 spot on the all time box office chart, behind the two James Cameron juggernauts Titanic and Avatar.
