Jason Bourne Goes Gunning for Star Trek Beyond at the Box Office

26 July 2016 9:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last weekend, Star Trek Beyond proved there is still life in the iconic Star Trek franchise after 50 years, taking the top spot at the box office with $59.2 million. While, admittedly, it was the lowest debut since filmmaker J.J. Abrams rebooted the franchise in 2009, it received glowing reviews and it may have more longevity in theaters than its predecessors. This weekend, it will go up against three newcomers, Universal's long-awaited Jason Bourne, Stx Entertainment's comedy Bad Moms and Lionsgate's Nerve, which actually opens in theaters tomorrow. We're predicting that Jason Bourne should have no trouble coming out on top in its opening weekend with $60.3 million.

The original Bourne movie trilogy is one of the few to have a bigger box office performance each time out, with many franchises increasing with the second movie and dropping with the third. 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum earned $69.2 million in its opening weekend, en route to »

Trailers For Restorations of James Ivory’s ‘Howards End’ and Louis Malle’s ‘Elevator to the Gallows’

1 July 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One undeniable beauty of advancing digital technology in the film industry is the growing ability to extensively touch-up classics in much higher resolutions. 4K restorations are a growing trend by companies in an effort to breath new life into older films, as well as preserve them for both historical record, study, and plain and simple enjoyment.

The two most recent features to get this treatment are James Ivory‘s 1992 classic Howards End and Louis Malle‘s 1958 crime drama Elevator to the Gallows, which both have been treated with trailers for their revitalization. The Howard restoration trailer demonstrates its lush color palette in sharp resolution, particularly in a slow-motion scene of books toppling. The Gallows trailer states the films extensive list of accolades, showing off its black and white cinematography with crisp new quality and clarity.

See the two trailers below, along with a Howards End poster and details on where to see each. »

Emma Suarez on the Inspirations Behind ‘Julieta’ and Being Part of Pedro Almodóvar’s World

23 May 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Marking his return to the female-centric dramas with which the director made his name, Pedro Almodóvar stopped by Cannes Film Festival with Julieta. Adapted from a series of short stories of Canadian Nobel prize-winning author Alice Munro, the story follows a woman who recalls the pivotal moments of her adult life. We said in our positive review from the festival, “It’s charmingly self-aware in its use of kitsch and melodrama — almost to the point of self-parody — and, while small in scope, it’s also one of his lusher and leaner offerings.”

While at the festival, we got the opportunity to speak with Emma Suarez, who plays the older version of Julieta. We discussed shooting chronologically, only meeting her co-star once on set, the wide range of inspirations for the film, what the film means to her, and much more. Check out the conversation below and our interview with Adriana Ugarte here. »

Doc Corner: 60 Years Since The Silent World's Historic Palme d'Or

10 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here. Each Tuesday we bring you reviews and features on documentaries from theatres, festivals, and on demand. In celebration of not just the Cannes Film Festival, which launches this week, but also the release of my book Cannes Film Festival: 70 Years out now through Wilkinson Publishing, we're looking at the first documentary to win the Palme d'Or. The book is a glossy trip through history, looking at the festival's beginnings, the films, the moviestars, the fashions and the controversies. You better believe I convinced my editors on a double-page Nicole Kidman spread!

Despite the belief that documentaries are as rare among the Cannes line-up as rain in the desert, the Cannes selectors of old were particularly fond of them. Especially so through the 1950s and 1960s. That just happens to be where we find the first documentary winner of the Palme d’or, The Silent World, or Le monde du Silence. »

Friends and Family Remember Legendary Jazz Musician Miles Davis at the Debut of Don Cheadle's Miles Ahead

24 March 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With curly tresses and the '70s wardrobe, Don Cheadle is Miles Davis in Miles Ahead. But he told People the transformation had to take place fast. "I didn't have tons of time," said the actor who not only played Davis, but also directed the film. "A lot of times, we were doing meetings in the trailer while we were doing hair and makeup. The clothes helped, they were very cool. The hair was an applique." As for creating the raspy voice, "You just work on it," indicated Cheadle at the Cinema Society and Ketel One screening of the film »

15 February 2016 7:04 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Eighth Annual Robert Classic French Film Festival — co-produced by Cinema St. Louis and the Webster University Film Series — celebrates St. Louis’ Gallic heritage and France’s cinematic legacy. The featured films span the decades from the 1920s through the early 1990s, offering a comprehensive overview of French cinema.

The fest is annually highlighted by significant restorations, and we’re especially pleased to present Jacques Rivette’s long-unavailable epic Out 1: Spectre Additional restoration highlights include Jean-Luc Godard’s A Married Woman and Max Ophüls’ too-little-seen From Mayerling To Sarajevo. Both Ophüls’ film and Louis Malle’s Elevator To The Gallows   – with a jazz score by St. Louis-area native Miles Davis — screen from 35mm prints. All films will screen at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium (47- E. Lockwood)

Music fans will further delight in the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra’s accompaniment and original score for Carl Th. Dreyer’s »
