Long Before Day-Lewis, Oscar-Nominated Actor Played Lincoln: TCM 'Stars' Series Continues

8 August 2015 5:19 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Raymond Massey ca. 1940. Raymond Massey movies: From Lincoln to Boris Karloff Though hardly remembered today, the Toronto-born Raymond Massey was a top supporting player – and sometime lead – in both British and American movies from the early '30s all the way to the early '60s. During that period, Massey was featured in nearly 50 films. Turner Classic Movies generally selects the same old MGM / Rko / Warner Bros. stars for its annual “Summer Under the Stars” series. For that reason, it's great to see someone like Raymond Massey – who was with Warners in the '40s – be the focus of a whole day: Sat., Aug. 8, '15. (See TCM's Raymond Massey movie schedule further below.) Admittedly, despite his prestige – his stage credits included the title role in the short-lived 1931 Broadway production of Hamlet – the quality of Massey's performances varied wildly. Sometimes he could be quite effective; most of the time, however, he was an unabashed scenery chewer, »

Oscar History-Making Actress Has Her Day on TCM

4 August 2015 12:19 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright ca. 1945. Teresa Wright movies on TCM: 'The Little Foxes,' 'The Pride of the Yankees' Pretty, talented Teresa Wright made a relatively small number of movies: 28 in all, over the course of more than half a century. Most of her films have already been shown on Turner Classic Movies, so it's more than a little disappointing that TCM will not be presenting Teresa Wright rarities such as The Imperfect Lady and The Trouble with Women – two 1947 releases co-starring Ray Milland – on Aug. 4, '15, a "Summer Under the Stars" day dedicated to the only performer to date to have been shortlisted for Academy Awards for their first three film roles. TCM's Teresa Wright day would also have benefited from a presentation of The Search for Bridey Murphy (1956), an unusual entry – parapsychology, reincarnation – in the Wright movie canon and/or Roseland (1977), a little-remembered entry in James Ivory's canon. »

Exclusive Interview: Michael Peña on The Vatican Tapes and Ant-man

23 July 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Michael Peña's played a wide range of roles in his career, always providing viewers with fully believable characters who enhance the stories they inhabit. His latest onscreen roles—Father Lozano in The Vatican Tapes and Luis in Ant-Man—are no exceptions, and Daily Dead recently had the chance to talk with Michael Peña about playing an exorcism-tasked priest, working with Paul Rudd in the new Marvel movie, and more.

The Vatican Tapes is your first foray into the horror genre. What attracted you to this story?

Michael Peña: For me, it always starts with the script. I remember reading the script—whenever you're feeling scared when you're reading something, when there's a big emotional response, that's always a pretty good thing. And that's what happened on this one. It stuck with me even when I went to bed. I'm friends with Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi—the guys who produced this movie. »

Judd Apatow and John Cassavetes: Two Sides of the Same Crisis

15 July 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Interview: Judd Apatow Talks 'Trainwreck,' Working With Amy Schumer, And Why He Should Be In TV Instead Of Movies Judd Apatow has long sung the praises of fellow filmmaker John Cassavetes, but the influence of the dramatic auteur on the raunchy R-rated comedy director isn't as evident as that between, let's say, Stanley Kubrick and Christopher Nolan, Ernst Lubitsch and Wes Anderson and so on. And yet, in exploring the relationship between the icon behind "Shadows" and "A Woman Under the Influence" and the 47-year-old director of "Trainwreck," the latter's filmography becomes more personal, intellectual and independently minded. A popular actor ("The Dirty Dozen," "Rosemary's Baby") turned landmark independent film director, Cassavetes challenged Hollywood by eschewing many of the formative trademarks that had driven the studio system in favor of a performance-driven aesthetic. While the titans of the industry »

Fatal Attraction Reboot Brewing at Fox; Mad Men Writers Attached

1 July 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox announced today that its developing an event special centered around a reboot of Fatal Attraction, Adrian Lyne's surprise 1987 hit that hinges on an extramarital affair that ruins a young professional's life. According to THR, Paramount Television and Fox are planning the series to be a short-order event series, not unlike the Rosemary's Baby reboot, with the possible chance for a second season, depending on how all of this shakes out in terms of ratings. Lyne's film tracked the devolving personal life of Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) following a short-lived affair with Alex Forrest (Glenn Close), who goes as far as to attempt to kill his wife (Anne Archer) and finally him, but there's no certainty if this will be the same narrative trajectory of the series. [caption id="attachment_480543" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Paramount[/caption] In fact, if ever there was an '80s film that could use a bit of retooling, it's »

'Fatal Attraction' Getting Remade As TV Event Series

1 July 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Before Amazing Amy went crazy in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," Adrian Lyne's Oscar nominated "Fatal Attraction" was the cinematic benchmark for relationships getting psychotic. And so it goes in the TV world of remakes and reboots, as the movie is now getting reheated for a redo to be stretched out over a few nights. Read More: Adrian Lyne To Direct Steve Zallian-Produced Thriller 'Deep Water'   THR reports that 20th Century Fox is developing the project, with "Mad Men" veterans Maria and Andre Jacquemetton penning the script about a married man whose affair turns into a total nightmare when his lover can't let him go. This fits right in the network's growing slate of one-off programming, which includes the currently airing "Wayward Pines,"  upcoming efforts like "X-Files" and another iteration of "24."  But whether or not an audience will show up —did anyone watch NBC's "Rosemary's Baby"?— we'll. »

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

Hungry Hearts director Saverio Costanzo in the grip of Wondrous Boccaccio director Paolo Taviani Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Soho House in New York, Hungry Hearts director Saverio Costanzo spoke with me about casting Adam Driver to star opposite Alba Rohrwacher in between Driver's work with Noah Baumbach on While We're Young and as a villain in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams. David Lynch, Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby, Coney Island, the C.G. Jung deer, and the lure of an Indigo Child enter into our consciousness.

The small apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, where Mina (Rohrwacher), Jude (Driver) and their newborn child live is a stone's throw from the Dakota building, home to another special baby. There is emotional intelligence, depth of perception, and a profound terror of being alive that connects both of these films. »

Tribeca: "The Adderall Diaries" and "Hungry Hearts"

21 April 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tribeca Festival coverage. Here's Joe Reid, who you know and love from the podcast...

The Adderall Diaries

We sometimes joke around about James Franco's insane output over the last five years -- he's been in Well Over 30 movies since 127 Hours, with a whopping 21 of them playing film festivals. That's an average of five films a year playing in some festival or another.

For a lesser-known actor, this kind of heavy indie output might be a better idea. Throw yourself into as many projects as possible, increasing your odds that one of them will hit. Franco's already established, though. He's had his hits. What starring in so many festival indies does for him it's the opposite: it ups his odds that he'll end up in at least a few total stinkers, every year. It's gotten to the point where Franco's presence in an indie feels like the promise of disappointment. »

StreamFix: 5 great witch movies to watch online right now

2 April 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This Sunday "Salem" Season 2 is coming to Wgn America, a network we all just learned about sometime last year. In celebration of the new season, which will co-star our presumptive Heroes vs. Villains 2015 champion Lucy Lawless, I've rounded up a list of five worthwhile witch movies to stream online right now. "Black Sunday" (Netflix) Mario Bava's 1960 B&W chiller stars the enormous-eyed Barbara Steele in a dual role as a reincarnated witch from the 17th century and her beautiful lookalike descendant, whom she has returned from beyond the grave to possess. A moody Gothic fright film featuring horror legend Steele in arguably her most iconic role. "Teen Witch" (Netflix) The unintentionally funny 1989 musical best known for its ill-advised "rap" number "Top That" stars Robyn Lively as an unpopular high schooler who discovers she's descended from the witches of Salem. She goes on to use her newly-discovered powers to win »

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

30 March 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by »

$3,000, porn parodies and Roy Orbison: 25 facts about Pretty Woman

23 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Can you believe it? Pretty Woman, the movie that turned Julia Roberts into a rom-com queen, was first released in cinemas 25 years ago today (March 23).

To mark the occasion, Digital Spy has unearthed 25 fascinating facts about the beloved 1990 film. Read on to find out why Vivian is a Disney princess, how Superman himself Christopher Reeve almost played Edward and the film's straight-to-the-point title in China.

1. The original script for Pretty Woman was titled $3,000 and was a dark drama about prostitution in La. Vivian was a drug addict trying to go clean to save up money for a trip to Disneyland. Disney-owned Touchstone Pictures developed the idea into a more conventional romantic comedy, meaning Vivian is something of an edgier Disney princess.

2. Werner Herzog claimed he was approached to direct Pretty Woman by Richard Gere when it was still being touted as a dark cautionary tale. Herzog being Herzog, though, we »

Partying in Mexico for Spring break isn't anything new for a college student, but Patrick Schwarzenegger's recent trip is still making headlines. The vacation became even more confusing this week with reports of the star getting friendly with his ex Taylor Burns at the Mango Deck Restaurant and Bar. Pictures show Patrick smiling while touching her shoulder, Taylor touching his back, and Patrick placing his hand on her waist during a chat with a pal. On the same day, the University of Southern California student - and Miley Cyrus's boyfriend - was photographed getting close to a bikini-clad girl. Omg.

Jessica Chastain Buys Manhattan Co-Op for $5.1 Million, Plus What She's Wearing at Paris Fashion Week—Take a Look!

11 March 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jessica Chastain's in a New York state of mind. The actress recently dropped $5.1 million on a Manhattan co-op in the historic Osborne Apartments, which sits directly across the street from Carnegie Hall. The building has quite the interesting background—the hallways are said to have inspired novelist Ira Levin to write Rosemary's Baby, while Jessica's own apartment was once owned by famed composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein (Leonard reportedly wrote songs for West Side Story with Stephen Sondheim in the unit). Jessica's new home features four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, 14-foot ceilings and ornate wood-burning fireplaces. Large bay windows give the apartment plenty of light, while »

NBC has set a May 28th start date for the Charles Manson miniseries Aquarius, which stars David Duchovny as a Los Angeles police officer in pursuit of the Helter Skelter cult leader in the period leading up to the Sharon Tate murder. Game of Thrones actor Gethin Anthony will portray Manson on the 13-episode "event series." Aquarius takes place in 1967 Los Angeles and follows Duchovny's Sgt. Sam Hodiak and a counterculture-infiltrating undercover cop played by Gray Damon as they investigate Manson and his "Family," the Wrap reports.

Review: God Told Me To (Blu-ray)

21 February 2015 6:40 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Take the Charles Whitman inspired murders in Peter Bogdanovich's Targets, the satanic cult conception of Rosemary's Baby and toss in conspiracies from The Chariots of the Gods, a crazy Andy Kaufman cameo and sexual body horror that would make David Cronenberg blush and you'll get a rough idea of what you're in for with Larry Cohen's 1976 unconventional  exploitation insanity known as God Told Me To.

The police procedural structure and gritty New York City atmosphere that permeates most of Cohen's work is punctuated with chaotic immediacy due to the Guerilla filmmaking and handheld cinematography that doesn't care about logical consistency and is concerned with creating panic and paranoia for the audience, not unlike the occurring calamity between characters and these bizarre events. Often due to budget and editing there is often no sense of time or reason to events as they unfold, which actually works in the film's »

Sundance Review: Bruce McDonald's Unconvincing Halloween Horror 'Hellions'

26 January 2015 12:58 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald is known for his willingness and ability to nimbly switch between genres and styles, gamely tackling everything from psychological thrillers like "Pontypool" to musical comedies like his fabled "Hard Core Logo" (championed by a young Quentin Tarantino), and directing a whole host of Canadian television in between (including, of course, "Degrassi: The Next Generation"). With the Halloween-set "Hellions," the journeyman director makes a bid for iconic horror and comes up short. What aspires to be a reproductive horror classic along the lines "Rosemary's Baby" ends up feeling like an overlong, slightly bloodier episode of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" or maybe "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" goes to hell. "Hellions" begins like any other spooky horror movie: an attractive young girl named Dora (Chloe Rose) canoodles with her slightly-wrong-side-of-the-tracks »

Fairy Tales, Witches, and Oscars. An 87 Year History

18 January 2015 9:34 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Over on Twitter Alex posed an interesting question to me and I thought I'd share it with you. Is Meryl Streep the first actor to be Oscar-nominated for playing a witch, or anyone in a fairy tale for that matter? As far as I can tell the answer is "in the way that you mean, yes" and "I believe so."

Though no witches in the fairy tale or broom-riding sense have been nominated before Streep, technically a witch star turn has won an Oscar and another spell-caster has been nominated. The first would be Ruth Gordon's diabolical coven leaderbusybody in Rosemary's Baby which we discussed in worshipful detail here.  And Sir Ian McKellen was nominated for playing "Gandalf the Grey" who, being a sorcerer, is basically the male equivalent of a witch. Otherwise, no witches. The famous witches we think of when we think of the movies weren't actually nominated. »
