Paul Newman Talks About The Joy (And Pain) Of Finally Winning His Oscar In 1987 Interview – Watch

30 June 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Color of Money” wasn’t a Martin Scorsese project: iI was a Paul Newman project. The acclaimed actor, an enormous fan of “Raging Bull,” wrote the director a fan letter asking to make a picture based on a 1984 novel by Walter Tevis. The resulting film is one of Scorsese’s most uncharacteristic, framing the story as comeback narrative for Newman’s pool hustler Fast Eddie Felson — though it’s arguable they never really show him leaving the game at all.

The final film lets Newman’s star persona bounce off the power of a rising Tom Cruise in an oddly sweet and optimistic package, one that would finally win Paul Newman his first Oscar in 1987 for Best Actor. A few weeks before the ceremony, Newman sat down with “Film 87” host Russell Harty to talk about that elusive trophy, as well as what it’s like to be Paul Newman »

29 June 2016 5:56 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

While we previously got the Bluray double feature of the TV adaption of Stephen King’s Carrie & the sequel to the 1976 adaption of the film, horror fans have been waiting for a Good HD release of Brian De Palma’s Sissy Spacek-led film. Previous releases have been “eh” at best, and it’s a title that just Begs for the Scream Factory treatment…and it looks like that’s about to happening. In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the horror classic, the Sf gang are pulling out the stops with a brand new October 11th Bluray release, complete with a new transfer, new supplemental material and quite the artwork (all versions…keep reading…).

Piper Laurie: The Hollywood Interview

Piper Laurie Keeps Her Chin Up

By Alex Simon

Few living actors can claim to have experienced the Hollywood machine in all its iterations more than three-time Oscar nominee Piper Laurie. Signed by Universal Pictures at 17, their youngest contract player in years, she was in the last generation that were part of the Hollywood “factory,” pushed into “cheesecake” roles that accented physical attributes, as opposed to talent. It was the beginning of a journey.

She was born Rosetta Jacobs in Detroit, Michigan, on January 22, 1932, to immigrant parents of Polish and Russian Jewish descent. When she was still five, the family sent her and her sister to a children’s sanatorium in the mountains to see if her sister’s asthma could be cured. Three years later after being reunited with her family she decided she wanted to become an actress and studied with Benno and Betomi Schneider for several years »

The Top 25 Funniest Actors of All Time

16 April 2016 7:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Who are the funniest, wackiest, cleverest, wittiest comic actors in the history of film and television? Take a look at our list and see who we came up with.

 

The top 25 laugh-getters…

 

 #25…George Carlin: Probably the best stand-up comedian of all-time. He brilliantly satirized American culture, mixing his liberal social commentary with an often unapologetically coarse and dirty style of language. His penchant for obscenities was most evident in his trademark routine “Seven words you can never say on television”. No one was better at mocking the excesses of American culture than Carlin.

 #24…Robin Williams: He had a manic energy and great improvisational skills. His hyper, free-form style inspired many comedians to follow, such as Jim Carrey. He shot to fame in the TV series Mork & Mindy, before breaking away to very successful movie career, appearing in films like Good Morning Vietnam, The World According to Garp, Mrs. Doubtfire and Popeye. »

2 April 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Tired of stupid sword 'n' sandal costume pictures? Robert Rossen's all-star bio-epic of the charter founder of the Masons is a superior analysis of political ambition and the ruthless application of power. Yeah, he's wearing a blond wig, but Richard Burton captures the force of Alexander without camping up Asia Minor. Alexander the Great Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1956 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 136 min. / Ship Date March 15, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Richard Burton, Fredric March, Claire Bloom, Danielle Darrieux, Barry Jones, Harry Andrews, Stanley Baker, Niall MacGinnis, Peter Cushing. Cinematography Robert Krasker Art Direction Andrej Andrejew Film Editor Ralph Kemplen Original Music Mario Nascimbene Produced by Gordon Griffith, Robert Rossen Written and Directed by Robert Rossen

These 12 Actors Hold the Record for Most Oscar Noms

17 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Oscar nominations spawned new records for some of Hollywood’s most decorated actors. Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet both received their seventh nominations, joining an exclusive club that includes Ingrid Bergman, Richard Burton, Judi Dench, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, Jane Fonda, Greer Garson, and Dustin Hoffman; every actor except Burton is an Oscar winner. Sylvester Stallone’s nomination for his performance as Rocky Balboa in “Creed” comes 39 years after originating the role in “Rocky.” This breaks Paul Newman’s 25-year record set for his portrayal of “Fast Eddie” Felson in 1961’s “The Hustler” and then again in 1986’s “The Color of Money.” The latter performance landed the actor an Oscar. Meanwhile, at 25, Jennifer Lawrence becomes the youngest person to receive four acting nominations. The following 12 actors are currently Oscar’s record-holders for receiving the most nominations. Meryl Streep (19 Nominations)Streep has an unprecedented run with the Oscars. Her 19 nominations »

David Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth This Weekend at Webster University

“Well I’m not a scientist. But I know all things begin and end in eternity!”

 The Man Who Fell To Earth  screens at Webster University’s Winifred Moore Auditorium (470 E. Lockwood Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63119) Friday through Sunday (February 19-21). Showtime is 7:30pm.

When The Man Who Fell To Earth was set to be released theatrically in the United States in 1976, studio execs were puzzled by the daring film and director Nicholas Roeg’s curious storytelling style. Twenty minutes of the film’s more unconventional scenes were excised, making an already challenging film even more so. Ambitious, imaginative, pretentious, and baffling in equal measure The Man Who Fell To Earth has had a huge cult following ever since its initial release. It left a strong emotional impact on me as a teen even as I puzzled over its odd narrative. It originally received mixed reviews and confused plenty »

Oscar Nominations: Surprising Factoids About 2016’s Contenders

14 January 2016 10:51 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Several records were set in nominations for the 88th Academy Awards, with plenty of oddities and eyebrow-raisers as well.

The top two vote-getting films, “The Revenant” (with 12 nominations) and “Mad Max: Fury Road” (with 10), both starred Tom Hardy, who scored his first nom for the former.

With today’s best actress nom for “Joy,” 25-year-old Jennifer Lawrence is now the youngest actor ever — male or female — to earn four Oscar nods.

Mad Max” opened in May, the only best-pic contender that didn’t bow domestically in the fourth quarter. Three launched in October (“The Martian,” “Bridge of Spies” and “Room”), two in November (“Brooklyn,” “Spotlight”) and two others in December (“The Big Short,” “The Revenant”). Of the eight best-pic hopefuls, “Revenant” is the only one that hadn’t debuted at a film festival.

With its five nominations, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” now has 30 nominations for the franchise, tying it with “Lord of the Rings. »

Steve Carell Receives His Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

6 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a notable lineage in cinematic history of gifted comedic actors who have gone on to achieve great commercial and critical success as dramatic players. Perhaps the most famous example is Robin Williams, whose career began with his now-iconic role as a wacky, displaced alien on “Mork & Mindy” before giving way to parts with considerable heft, from the titular lead in “The World According to Garp” to his revelatory turn in “The Fisher King” to his Academy Award-winning performance as Matt Damon’s therapist in “Good Will Hunting.”

And there are scores of other comedians, from Jackie Gleason to Michael Keaton to Bill Murray, all three of whom received Oscar nominations for their dramatic work in “The Hustler,” “Birdman” and “Lost in Translation,” respectively.

And now there’s Steve Carell, who rose from a “senior correspondent” on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” to loner workaday hero Michael Scott »
