Tokyo 2014: Peter Bogdanovich And Owen Wilson Talk She's Funny That Way

30 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Peter Bogdanovich appeared on stage at the Tokyo International Film Festival last night to talk about his latest, She's Funny That Way. The veteran director made his name with 1971's The Last Picture Show, though he'll always be Dr. Melfi's droll psychiatrist in The Sopranos to me. She's Funny That Way is a comedy drama starring Imogen Poots as an escort offered a large sum of money by a director, Owen Wilson, to give up her current way of life and follow her dreams of acting. Wilson, on his first visit to Japan, was also present to take questions from the obviously delighted audience. Q. Where did you get the idea for this film? Was it based on some experience or is it from the imagination?Peter...

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #40-31

14 October 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny.  We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

Exclusive Interview with Director Seth Grossman for ‘Inner Demons’

3 October 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Reality television shows can take a wrong turn into horror especially when a demonic possession is involved.

From former reality TV producer Seth Grossman, “Inner Demons” follows an intervention-style reality show crew trying to film a sixteen-year-old girl fighting a drug addiction. However, she was suffering from something even more destructive—a demonic possession. The movie is an inquiry into the truth about her—with symptoms between the disturbing and scary intersection of insanity, addiction and true possession.

The film stars Lara Vosburgh and Morgan McClellan.

Latino-Review was granted an exclusive interview with Grossman to discuss the production of this horror film. We talked about the young actress, the worlds of addiction and demonic possession and even relating the behaviors of hyenas to demons.

Inner Demons” is playing in select theaters and available on VOD today.

Oprah, Vanessa Williams, and other stars who got their start in beauty pageants

14 September 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

While Miss America hasn’t bred any headline-stealing celebrities recently, beauty pageants were once a place where future stars got their start. Oprah was Miss Black Tennessee; Halle Berry was Miss Ohio. Vanessa Williams made it all the way to the top, nabbing the Miss America title in 1984.

With Miss America’s 88th annual pageant airing Sunday on ABC at 9 p.m. Et, EW took a look at the most famous Oscar winners and television icons who once won crowns and sashes:

Venice Film Review: ‘One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich and the Lost American Film’

8 September 2014 4:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In this new century of splintered viewing and distribution options, it’s harder than ever for modern films to be truly lost — but our regard for them can be, which is what director Bill Teck argues nearly happened to Peter Bogdanovich’s dry-but-sparkling 1981 romantic comedy “They All Laughed.” How it fell from public and critical view, only to be retrieved by a passionate new generation of champions, is the ostensible subject of Teck’s enjoyable if inelegantly assembled doc “One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich and the Lost American Film,” though it expands into a chatty examination of the filmmaker’s post-peak career, and the emotional aftermath of his ill-fated affair with “Laughed” star Dorothy Stratten.

At one point in Teck’s documentary, Quentin Tarantino makes the point that Bogdanovich was the first filmmaker to be granted his own place in Hollywood celebrity culture — more so than more latterly celebrated contemporaries like Scorsese, »

Venice: Peter Bogdanovich Returns with 'She's Funny That Way'

2 September 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Peter Bogdanovich returns to the big screen after an almost 14-year hiatus with "She's Funny That Way," a well-timed, hilarious new film that debuted at the Venice Film Festival. The veteran director of "Targets" and "The Last Picture Show" pays heartfelt homage to the screwball comedies of the 40s and 50s, whose scripted alchemy took us away from the daily grind of life for 90 delightful minutes. Isabella Patterson (Imogen Poots) is a Hollywood starlet recounting her improbable beginnings in showbiz, from reluctant escort girl to Broadway idol -- all thanks to a chance encounter that changed her career forever. One night while on night duty, Isabella meets Arnold Arnoldson (Owen Wilson), a Broadway director who helps her pursue her dreams of becoming an actress and lands her an audition for the leading role in his play. Called in by Joshua (Will Forte), the timid playwright, she has to rehearse a scene with Arnold’s wife, »

Two Auteur Docs Play Venice Classics, on Bogdanovich and Penn

6 August 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

One of the great things about my job is the chance to travel and meet and talk to a range of cinematic artists. And I've been fortunate to get to know both Peter Bogdanovich ("The Last Picture Show") and the late great Arthur Penn ("Bonnie and Clyde"), with whom I attended the Havana Film Festival in 1987. Both are erudite filmmakers who have a great deal to share; it's fun listening to them talk about cinema past and present. So I look forward indeed to two documentary tributes to two great American directors that are playing La Biennale di Venezia in the Venice Classics section: "One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich & The Lost American Film," the first documentary from Bill Teck, and "Mise en scène with Arthur Penn (a conversation)" by Amir Naderi. The 71st Venice Film Festival, directed by Alberto Barbera and organized by Biennale chair Paolo Baratta, will »

James Nelson Dead: Sound Editor, Producer Dies at 82

20 June 2014 5:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Nelson, a sound editor, supervising sound editor and producer for film and television with more than 180 credits, including “Easy Rider,” “Five Easy Pieces,” “The Exorcist” and “American Graffiti,” has died. He was 82.

Director Monte Hellman, on whose classic 1971 film “Two-Lane Blacktop” Nelson worked, said, “He was one of my closest, dearest friends. He’s worked on all my movies. His first work was in sound editing and he did that on all my movies and even on the last one, ‘Road to Nowhere,’ he came in as a consultant just to make sure everything was right because I just wouldn’t do anything without his approval.”

Nelson was the supervising sound editor, often uncredited, on some of the classics of 1960s and ’70s cinema: Richard Rush’s film “Psych-Out” and Rafelson’s classic “Head,” both in 1968; “Easy Rider” in 1969; Rafelson’s “Five Easy Pieces”; Dalton Trumbo’s “Johnny Got His Gun »

Owen Wilson Comforts Zach Galifianakis In Trailer For Are You Here

6 June 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dysfunctional families have been extremely fertile ground for Hollywood for a long time, as has been made clear by the abundance of dramas like August: Osage Country and Nebraska, and comedies like Little Miss Sunshine and the upcoming This Is Where I Leave You. Now, audiences can look forward to another film that explores broken family dynamics – Are You Here, which stars Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis.

A new trailer for the flick, which focuses on a weatherman (Wilson) who accompanies his childhood friend (Galifianakis) to the reading of his late father’s will, has hit the web, and you can check it out below.

Normally, the involvement of Wilson and Galifianakis alone would be enough to get me excited, but the supporting cast for Are You Here is also superb. Amy Poehler (NBC’s Parks & Recreation) plays Terry, sister of Galifianakis’ flighty man-child, who understandably isn’t too happy »

New Interstellar Trailer Is Amazing

16 May 2014 3:44 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In one of the most anticipated movies of the year, watch the stunning new trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. The movie chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Opening in cinemas in November, (in the UK on November 7), Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine.

The trailer is genius – kudos to whoever cut it together. The launch scene will assuredly be exhilarating. I can’t wait for November!

Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), the production will travel the globe and utilize a mixture of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography to bring to the screen a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, »

Re-Viewed: Night of the Living Dead, George A Romero's horror classic

14 May 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the mid-1960s, George Romero planned to make his feature debut with Whine of the Fawn, a drama about two teenagers in the Middle Ages. If he'd pitched a body-swap comedy about middle-aged teenagers, he'd perhaps have had more luck. As it was, his high-minded, "Bergman-esque" project failed to attract investors and the 27-year-old college dropout from the Bronx, now shooting commercials and industrials in Pittsburgh, turned his attention to horror.

A fan of the ghoulish EC Comics and monster movies of the 1950s, and heavily influenced by Richard Matheson's apocalyptic, home-invasion vampire novel I Am Legend, Romero scraped together $114,000 to shoot a Diy cannibal flick entitled Night of the Flesh Eaters. Set over a single night in a Pittsburgh farmhouse, it posited an America inexplicably overrun by resurrected corpses munching on human entrails, and threw together a band of scrabbling, squabbling survivors who hole up in a »

Gia Coppola on Directing Palo Alto, Adapting James Franco, and Joining the Family Business

9 May 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Gia Coppola’s last name is, well, highly familiar. And with her first feature film, Palo Alto, out today, she joins grandfather Francis Ford Coppola, aunt Sofia Coppola, and cousins Nicolas Cage, Jason Schwartzman, Roman Coppola, and more, in the family business. (Her father, Gian-Carlo Coppola, died before she was born.) Palo Alto is adapted from James Franco’s book of short stories, and her film is moody and funny and just a little bit gritty, reminiscent of the work of both Aunt Sofia and Kids director Larry Clark. Vulture spoke to Coppola about teen movies, Instagram research, and famous families.The notes for the movie mention American Graffiti, The Last Picture Show, and The Outsiders as your favorite teen movies. Do you like any that are more current?I felt like there hadn't been modern depictions of teenagers I really liked — that’s why I was excited about the »

Ellen Burstyn on Her Glorious Career, Being Under-Directed, and Wormholes

7 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Brooklyn theater BAMcinématek just wrapped up its career retrospective on Ellen Burstyn, and there are few actresses more deserving. Although younger audiences might know her more as the evil grandmother in Lifetime’s 2014 adaptation of Flowers in the Attic, she's also made indelible impressions on screen in The Exorcist, The Last Picture Show, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, and Requiem for a Dream, to name but a few of her many great performances. Burstyn was generous enough to take a moment to chat with Vulture about her Oscar-, Emmy-, and Tony-winning career, including how she's been under-directed, why she's going to threaten Darren Aronofsky, and what would happen if she revealed secrets about the upcoming Christopher Nolan film Interstellar.I was actually at Gloria Steinem's 80th birthday party last night, and everyone was saying 80 is the new 40 ...That's right!

Cinema at the Margins

17 March 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Wheeler Winston Dixon’s Cinema at the Margins is an enlightening collection of essays and interviews. Wearing his encyclopedic knowledge lightly, Dixon shares his expert insights and research in an eloquent, eminently readable style. I chose to review his new book because its reference to the ‘margins’ held the enticing promise of new discoveries, and a brief survey of its table of contents confirmed that, alongside well-known and much-loved names, there were also unfamiliar ones. The volume covers an early film by Peter Bogdanovich, the horror movies of Lucio Fulci, American 1930s and 40s science fiction serials, the TV series Dragnet, the brief career of Argentine director Fabián Bielinsky and the long one of Hollywood director Sam Newfield, Robert Bresson’s Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne (1945), U.S. 1960s experimental cinema, Dixon’s own meditation on the shift to digital, and interviews with music video director Dale “Rage” Resteghini, »
