13 July 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Couches, sofas, chairs and thrones – these might seem to be some of the more mundane props on TV but they’re often seen the most frequently. Distinctive Chesterfields, a handmade furniture manufacturer based in Yorkshire, are celebrating the most iconic and famous of all seats in TV history with 11 illustrated images.

The Iron Throne

“The breath of the greatest dragon forged the Iron Throne…the swords of the vanquished, a thousand them, melted together like so many candles.”

– Viserys Targaryen

Located in the Great Hall of the Red Keep beneath the seven-pointed star of the Faith of the Seven and commissioned by King Joffrey, Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne is perhaps the most iconic in the series, forged from 1000 surrendered swords.

‘Star Wars’ Producer Robert Watts Unveils New Films

3 June 2016 7:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British producer Robert Watts, who worked on the “Star Wars” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” trilogies, is developing a pair of movies, Variety has learned exclusively.

Watts is teaming with Italian songwriter Mauro Repetto and French writer Typhanie Soulat on the live-action/animated romantic comedy “Miranda” and psychological thriller “5, 6, 7, 8.” Real Big Hits is the exclusive worldwide sales and distribution agent.

“Miranda” centers on an unborn baby who — with the help of angels — battles witches to ensure that her future parents find each other, fall in love and bring her to life. The film blends traditional animation, computer animation and live action. Repetto, founder of the pop group 883, is writing the script with Soulat. The duo is also writing the soundtrack.

“5, 6, 7, 8” centers on a sociable marketing executive who’s leading a double life as a kidnapper of young women to create a human keyboard that will perform the titular song with a dance routine. »

Sam Mendes Says He Won't Direct The Next James Bond Film

30 May 2016 3:47 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Sam Mendes hosted the press launch to mark production of Spectre at Pinewood Studios in 2015.

By Lee Pfeiffer

Director Sam Mendes  brought the James Bond franchise to an all-time high in terms of critical acclaim and boxoffice receipts with the 2012 release of "Skyfall", which marked the 50th anniversary of the movie series. He then announced he would not be on board for the next 007 flick, "Spectre". However, after much negotiating (and presumably a boatload more money), Mendes relented and directed that film as well. While not enjoying the hype and response that "Skyfall" did, "Spectre" was also a major international hit grossing close to $900 million, outdone only by "Skyfall", which racked up a gross of $1.1 billion. Now Mendes says he won't direct the next Bond film- and this time he says he means it. Mendes has nothing but good things to say about working on two 007 blockbusters but says it's »

Who should direct / star in the next Bond?

28 May 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In not surprising news, Sam Mendes is moving on from the 007 franchise after Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). Daniel Craig is probably moving on, too, but rumors about who will replace him are, as ever, premature. The names floating about this time are Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston (wishful fan thinking, maybe, since the internet has been suggesting these two names forever) and 30 year old Jamie Bell which is an interesting idea and probably not a bad one. If chosen he'd be the youngest Bond since Sean Connery (who was 30 when he was cast for Dr. No (1962) though most subsequent Bonds have been around 40 when they started. Plus Bell is super charismatic but underused in cinema.

Though Bond films are largely regarded as producer driven and leading actor focused pictures, rather than directorial feats, the man in the chair is important. In the past the franchise has generally relied on mid level directors rather than auteurs, »

Burt Kwouk, Popular Character Actor, Dead At Age 85; Played Cato In The Pink Panther Films

24 May 2016 6:35 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Character actor Burt Kwouk has passed away at the age of 85. Although primarily known for his work in comedy in film and television, Kwouk was equally adept at playing dramatic roles. In fact in the year 2011, he was awarded an OBE in honor of his  accomplishments in drama.  However, Kwouk will always be immortalized as Cato, the long-suffering but fanatically devoted man servant to  Peter Sellers' bumbling Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther series. A common theme throughout the series was having Cato follow Clouseau's orders to keep him on guard by ambushing him at the most inopportune moments. Their raucous battles were the stuff of inspired lunacy. He and Sellers first appeared together in 1964 and he would continue to play the same character in new installments of the series after Sellers death up until 1992. Kwouk was also a popular presence in British television and reinforced »

24 May 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Burt Kwouk, the actor who played martial arts expert Cato in the original Peter Sellers "Pink Panther" films, has died at the age of 85. He "passed peacefully" according to his agent Jean Diamond, with no specific cause of death mentioned.

Born in northwest England in 1930 and raised in Shanghai, Kwouk had his first major role in 1958's "The Inn of the Sixth Happiness".

He also had guest spots on popular 1960s shows like "The Avengers," "Secret Agent" and "The Saint" and a regular role on 1980s British sitcom "Last of the Summer Wine'.

But it's his work in a half dozen "Pink Panther" films as Cato Fong that he'll always be remembered for. The character, a manservant to Sellers' bumbling Inspector Clouseau, »

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: A.O. Scott, Orson Welles, Owen Gleiberman, Humphrey Bogart, and More

5 May 2016 1:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Part of the fun in rounding up recent books about (or connected to) cinema is the sheer diversity of releases. This latest collection features a dive into this history of Hollywood legends, lots more Force Awakens, compelling reads from two fascinating critics, texts highlighting the art of Batman v. Superman and The Little Prince, and more. Plus, if you’ve been coveting Constable Zuvio mentions, you’re finally in luck.

Movie Freak: My Life Watching Movies by Owen Gleiberman (Hachette Books)

My favorite book of 2016 thus far has arrived, and it’s Movie Freak by former Entertainment Weekly critic Owen Gleiberman. For many a nineties teen, EW was something of a pop culture bible, and Gleiberman’s incisive writing was a key reason. In Movie Freak, his unguardedly personal memoir, he talks of films loved (Blue Velvet, Manhunter), friendships dashed (with the likes of Oliver Stone and Pauline Kael), and »

Criterion Reflections – Golden Eyes (1968) – Hulu

2 April 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

David’s Quick Take for the tl;dr Media Consumer:

Golden Eyes, directed by Jun Fukuda (more famous for his Godzilla sequels shot around this same period) is a trifling goof of a film, probably best suited as a Saturday matinee indulgence whenever one happens to be in the mood for lightweight distraction of little or no substance. The movie qualifies as a Criterion title only on account of its availability on their Hulu channel. I seriously doubt that it will ever be dignified with a release on physical media in this country, unless Criterion ever decides to open a print-on-demand service, in which event I figure at least a few copies will be snatched up by J-Pop cultists who have a special appreciation for the slightly bonkers aesthetics of this era. It’s a 1968 sequel to a film released in 1965 that in English-speaking countries is known as Ironfinger, but »

A Real-Life Version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory Will (Kind Of) Exist Soon

18 March 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

For readers of a certain age, Roald Dahl's books played a wonderful role in their childhood. He captured the anxiety and beauty of children in stories as varied as James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Witches, Matilda and The Bfg. Dahl turned to the movie world in the late 1960s, writing the scripts for the James Bond spy thriller You Only Live Twice and the children's fantasy Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but his experience in adapting his own book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was not very satisfying. The wildly popular book, first published in 1964, was inspired by Dahl's own brief time as a chocolate taster, and went on to sell more than 13 million copies worldwide. After penning the first draft of the screenplay, David Seltzer (The Omen) came on...

Planet Of The Titans: the Star Trek movie that never was

14 March 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 6, 2016

Rejected scripts and a revolving door of writers. Ryan looks back at Planet Of The Titans, the early Star Trek movie that never was...

It's March 1977, and there's a very odd party going on at Paramount. The champagne's flowing, the glasses are clinking, but the atmosphere's far from celebratory.

Writers Alan Scott and Chris Bryant, who for the past six months had been working on a Star Trek movie script, have decided to leave the project following numerous rewrites and conflicted ideas from producers.

Susan Sackett, who was Star Trek creator Gene Rodenberry's personal assistant at the time, was one of several people at that party. "The occasion was one of celebration," Sackett wrote in the seventh issue of Starlog magazine, "yet touched with the sadness of saying 'au revoir' to old friends."

Old friends though Scott and Bryant may have been, there are suggestions here and »

Sir Ken Adam, Oscar-winning Production Designer, Dead At Age 95

11 March 2016 9:31 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Cinema Retro mourns the loss of Sir Ken Adam, the ingenious, Oscar-winning production designer who has passed away at age 95. Adam's work helped redefine films in terms of the elaborate and creative designs he invented, particularly for the James Bond franchise. Adam's work on the first 007 film, "Dr. No" in 1962 was deemed to be nothing less than remarkable, considering that the entire film was shot on a relatively low budget of just over $1 million. His exotic designs so impressed Stanley Kubrick that he hired Adam as production designer on his 1964 classic "Dr. Strangelove." For that film, Adam created the now legendary "War Room" set which many people believe actually exists at the Pentagon. In fact when Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as President in 1981 he asked to see the War Room, only to be told that it was a fictional creation. Reagan acknowledged that he had been intrigued »
