Setting the stage, part 2 by Anne-Katrin Titze

17 hours ago | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

The Last Impresario director Gracie Otto with producer Michael White at the Hôtel du Cap during the Cannes Film Festival.

Jack Nicholson opens up off camera to Gracie and she thinks about Easy Rider, Kate Moss presents an Olivier Award, Greta Scacchi’s daughter Leila George abets in arranging a revealing meeting with Lou Adler, and Michael White's style shines through. The good advice Michael gave Gracie when meeting again Quentin Tarantino's producer Lawrence Bender rings true for anyone who finds themselves in her place.

Gracie Otto's The Last Impresario starts out by recounting how she met White at the opening night party of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. He gave her his number to come to dinner and she decided to make a film about the man everybody famous was flocking to and most people had never heard of.

An Intimate Conversation With Mike Nichols

20 November 2014 2:52 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Two years ago, on the eve of his eagerly awaited Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, I sat down with Mike Nichols to look back on his remarkable career. During those two-plus hours together at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan, the legendary director, then 80, reminisced about a life of highs and lows that began as a bright-eyed young boy who fled Nazi Germany for America. "I remember everything about getting on the boat in Germany in 1939," Nichols said. "I was 7, my brother was 3, and my father was already in New York setting up his practice as a doctor. German Jews couldn't leave the country, »

Mike Nichols Movies: 18 Essential Films You Should Watch Right Now

20 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.

Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Big E's “Bad” Movies That Hurt So Good: “Curse Of The Black Widow” (1977, TV Movie)

“If a movie makes you happy, for whatever reason, then it’s a good movie.”

*******Warning: Review Contains Spoilers*******

By Ernie Magnotta  

If there’s one thing I love, it’s 1970s made-for-tv horror films. I remember sitting in front of the television as a kid and watching a plethora of films such as Gargoyles, Bad Ronald, Satan’s School for Girls, Horror at 37,000 Feet, Devil Dog: Hound of Hell, Scream Pretty Peggy, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Moon of the Wolf and The Initiation of Sarah just to name a few. Some of those are better than others, but all were fun.

When I think back, there have been some legendary names associated with small screen horrors. Genre masters John Carpenter (Halloween), Steven Spielberg (Jaws), Wes Craven (Nightmare on Elm Street), Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Joseph Stefano (Psycho) all took shots at television »

DVD Review: "The Glory Stompers" (1967) Starring Dennis Hopper, Jody McCrea Chris Noel And Jock Mahoney

4 November 2014 10:49 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Probably no genre illustrates the rapid advance of cinematic screen freedoms than the biker movie. The genre debuted in 1953 with Marlon Brando in "The Wild One". The film, which chronicled the virtual takeover of a small California town by a wild motorcycle gang, was considered extremely controversial at the time. The biker film remained largely dormant until the release of Roger Corman's "The Wild Angels" in 1966, which became a surprising boxoffice and media sensation. Only a year or two before, teenage audiences were being fed a steady diet of white bread rock 'n roll films that bore little resemblance to real life. Suddenly, the biker film blatantly presented raging hormones, gang wars, drug use and group sex without apology. Young people patronized these films in droves. With social constraints falling by the minute, the biker films- cheaply made as they were- spoke to the emerging generation »

Gallery 1988 Artists Re-Imagine Art For 7 Cult Classic Steelbooks

2 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve got to say that I’m a huge fan of those folks over at Gallery 1988 who continue to bring out new and original work, both for movies new and old. We’re now very intrigued to announced that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are teaming up with them to launch “Project Pop Art” a collection of 7 cult classic films re-released on Blu-ray in (my personal favourite) SteelBook packaging, featuring innovative and unique artwork by top emerging artists and designers.

The collection commemorates popular and iconic films and will be available exclusively at Zavvi.com in the UK on January 19th 2015 (Das Boot, Dr. Strangelove, The Karate Kid), February 9th (Easy Rider, Snatch), and March 9th (District 9, Taxi Driver) for a limited time only. Each title is available separately for pre-order right now and – to be honest – ours are in because they’re pretty special.

Games on Film: Super Mario Bros

1 October 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Digital Spy presents Games on Film, a look back at the numerous (and quite often disastrous) movies based on video games. How closely do they stick to their source material, and how well do they hold up on their own merits?

Previous Games on Film: Resident Evil

Super Mario Bros (1993)

How do you turn a wacky concept like Super Mario Bros into a film? That was the conundrum faced by directors Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel when they inherited the project from French producer Roland Joffe in the early '90s.

Just how Joffe managed to convince Nintendo that a live-action movie about a plumber who stomps on turtles and smashes blocks with his head was a good idea is anybody's guess, but the gaming giant did endorse the venture.

Due to the nature of the source material, a direct adaptation was pretty much impossible, so scriptwriters Jim Jennewein and »

Judge Wraps Up Lawsuit Over Images of Andy Warhol Superstar Edie Sedgwick

29 September 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Who owns rights to an actor's face? The question seems simple, but it really isn't. Take Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson, who once sued two home cinema companies for using a screenshot of the duo from the action film The A-Team to promote a large projection screen. Do Cooper and Neeson own the rights to their mugs as presented in A-Team or did the actors transfer those rights to the film's studio, 20th Century Fox? Or take Peter Fonda, who sued Dolce & Gabbana after seeing T-shirts emblazoned with an image of him from the 1969 film Easy Rider. Were those

10 August 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive, Updated At 6:06 p.m. with comments about Spotlight at end: You might call August, 2014 a full-circle month for Mark Ruffalo. His performance as Ned Weeks in Ryan Murphy‘s HBO version of The Normal Heart earned one of that film’s astonishing 16 Emmy nominations, with the winners to be announced on Aug. 25. He’s eager to catch the Broadway revival of the 1996 stage play that launched his career, Kenneth Lonergan‘s This Is Our Youth, which begins on the 18th with Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin.

Writing about his work in Lonergan’s You Can Count On Me, the New York Times’ Stephen Holden said, “Mr. Ruffalo’s star-making performance deserves to be added to the list of charismatic, grownup lost boys that includes the Marlon Brando of  A Streetcar Named Desire and the Jack Nicholson of Easy Rider.”

The 74-year-old actor filed his lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court last July.

Trouble With a Cause: The Top 10 Movie Rebels

Now what would the movies be like if everybody on the big screen was a conformist and blandly played by the rules? Every now and then it can be quite therapeutic to have a bad apple shape our rigid outlook with a dosage of cynicism in cinema. Whether intentionally unruly or merely questioning the status quo movie rebels can be compellingly entertaining for various reasons.

In Trouble With a Cause: The Top 10 Movie Rebels let us take a look at some of the on-screen troublemakers with a taste for colorful turmoil, shall we?

The selections for Trouble With a Cause: The Top 10 Movie Rebels are (in alphabetical order according to the film titles):

Dennis Hopper's Stunning Photography Shows 1960s-America in All Its Complexity

16 June 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Before he became a two-time Oscar nominee and a famous "enfant terrible" of Hollywood, Dennis Hopper was, well, a young punk. After 1969's "Easy Rider," which Hopper directed and co-starred in, the actor/director endured what was essentially an exile from show business until 1986, when David Lynch cast him as the gangster Frank in "Blue Velvet." In the intervening 15 years, Hopper threw himself into photography, a collection of which--"Out in the Sixties"--was released in '86 and swept under by the media frenzy surrounding "Blue Velvet."  In the preface to that book, Hopper wrote, "These are my photos. I started at 18 taking pictures, I stopped at 31. I am 50 now. These represent the years from 25-31… They were the only creative outlet I had for those years until Easy Rider. I never carried a camera again." In anticipation of an upcoming exhibit of Hopper's work at the Royal Academy in London, »
