The Notable Films of 2010: Part Five

23 December 2009 10:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

Draft excluder: Napoleon - the greatest movie never made?

9 December 2009 9:24 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the first of a new fortnightly series, Phil Hoad reviews an as-yet-unfilmed movie script. Today: Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon

This is Draft excluder, the Guardian's fortnightly review of unproduced screenplays. Whether it's the latest hot item that's got the development execs thumb-wrestling over it in the parking lot, or the great unfinishable obsession that has defeated many a director, we'll be dicing it, slicing it and making nice (or not) with it.

Remember: the scripts reviewed here are works-in-progress, and will differ from the finished film.

This week: Napoleon by Stanley Kubrick

The pitch

The rise and fall of history's greatest general by history's greatest director (if you subscribe to Empire magazine). Napoleon dynamite, surely?

The pedigree

Doesn't come any higher, really. In a career that saw a fair few get away, Napoleon became Kubrick's cream cetacean. Having tackled the entire history of humanity in 2001: A Space Odyssey, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger And Screen Legend Kirk Douglas In Today's Daily TwitPic

9 November 2009 6:00 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is always going to be a movie star to me, even though the duty of governing California has kept him away from Hollywood in recent years. Here's hoping that his cameo appearance in "The Expendables" is a sign that he wants to get back to acting after he finished with politics.

He's still hooked in enough that he'll take a trip to present an award. Kirk Douglas, one of the original tough guy actors, was recently given the British Film Academy's Britannia Award, and Schwarzenegger was the one to present it to him. Douglas has been quiet in recent years, but he's also 92 years old. With classics like "Spartacus," Stanley Kubrick's "Paths of Glory" and "Gunfight at the Ok Corral" under his belt, the man has earned himself a rest, the better to observe the success of his son, Michael, and to collect lifetime achievement awards, like »

AMPAS spotlights film posters in exhibit

9 September 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will shine its spotlight on movie posters in its new exhibition, "Art of the Movie Poster: Illustrated One-Sheets and Design Concepts from the Paul Crifo Archive," opening next Thursday in the Academy's Grand Lobby Gallery in Beverly Hills.

The exhibition will focus on the decades from the 1950s through the '80s, showcasing the creative process by which a finished movie poster is achieved. Each stage of the process will be represented, through reference stills, concept sketches and hand-rendered and photographic "comps." Also featured will be many of the approved original illustrations of "key art."

Multiple poster concepts will be displayed alongside the final "winning" posters, which are from the collections of poster designer Paul Crifo and the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library. This exhibition marks the first time that much of Crifo's work will be on display for public viewing.
