Academy's Special 2014 Honorees: Veterans Belafonte, Carrière, Miyazaki and - Finally - O'Hara

29 August 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

Star Wars: Episode VII resumes production following Harrison Ford’s injury

28 August 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Good news for Star Wars fans – after shutting down production for several weeks in the wake of Harrison Ford’s leg injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, it has now been announced the filming on the eagerly-anticipated first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy has now resumed in the U.K.

Ford suffered a broken leg back in May during an accident on the Millennium Falcon set, forcing director J.J. Abrams to rejig the schedule for Episode VII, before taking a break throughout August. However, with Ford now seemingly fully recovered from his injury, it looks like the film is back on track to meet its December 2015 release date, much to the relief of fans.

Star Wars: Episode VII sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by »

Latest Star Wars: Episode VII plot rumours are full of Sith, first look at new villain?

15 August 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a busy day for Star Wars fans, what with our possible first look at the redesigned Imperial Stormtroopers and some alleged Han Solo concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we’ve got a tonne of alleged plot details for the eagerly-anticipated first instalment of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy. However, it should be noted that these come by way of rumour specialists Latino-Review and Badass Digest, so there’s also a good chance the post is pretty much spoiler free…

So, we’ve all heard the reports that Episode VII will open with Luke Skywalker’s severed hand floating through space before coming into the possession of Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who then set off on an adventure to find Luke with the help of Han Solo and Chewbacca. Well, according to Latino-Review, it turns out that Luke hasn’t just been missing since »

Han Solo concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII?

15 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning we brought you a couple of images reportedly showing the new-look Stormtrooper designs for Star Wars: Episode VII, which made their way online via Indie Revolver, and now the site is back with some alleged concept art featuring Harrison Ford’s space scoundrel Han Solo.

Abrams-directed sequel. Take a look…

'True Detective' Season 2 Storyline Unveiled; Elisabeth Moss Eyed for Role

5 August 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, it was announced that Vince Vaughn is in early talks to take on one of four main roles in True Detective Season 2. Now, it looks like Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss is also circling one of these four lead characters, with The Killing's Michelle Forbes looking to sign on in some capacity as well.

If he signs on, Vince Vaughn will play the main protagonist, though it is noted that he may not necessarily be the villain or a murderer, as True Detective is primarily a mystery based series. Elisabeth Moss is eyeing the lead female detective, while it is not known which role Michelle Forbes is currently vying for.

Colin Farrell, who will star as the lead detective, is close to wrapping up his deal. Taylor Kitsch is still the frontrunner to play a younger detective. HBO has not yet confirmed any casting for the crime drama. »

Dick Smith – The Original Transformer

1 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Legendary Special Effects Make-Up master Dick Smith created the primordial transformations for 1981's Altered States and Altered States would  be a fitting job title for the visionary craftsman who died this week at 92. Smith was responsible for the look of so many movie characters, from Brando's grizzled mob boss in The Godfather to The Exorcist's demon child to Taxi Driver's mohawked sociopath that it's safe to say he was the "face" of movies for over two decades. Here are a few Tfh commentaries featuring some of Smith's most enduring creations along with a tribute from Smith's most likely torchbearer, Rick Baker and a 1981 interview with those two great artists.     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5OGhAf8GI0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLixWET67NQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Edc-OtblZus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4b3xIh5rOzA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qVqGorIAG8 https://www. »

Week in Review: Is Studio Ghibli closing?

1 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Could the magic that has come from films like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies be coming to an end? Thompson on Hollywood is reporting that Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli may be closing its doors because the cost of making hand-drawn animated films with the attention to detail they include might just be too cost prohibitive to continue.

Their source is a Japanese website that explains that the studio is considering becoming little more than a copyright management company, free of the obligation of actually making movies.

Toh! points out that Ghibli continues to experience high costs because they refuse to export their labor out to cheaper companies in pursuit of greater quality. More over, recent Ghibli films that have made huge amounts of money, like Miyazaki’s latest The Wind Rises, or Isao Takahata’s The Tale of Princess Kaguya (which opens in America »

‘Godfather Of Make-Up’ Dick Smith Passes Away Aged 92

1 August 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is with great sadness for Thn to report that movie make-up master Dick Smith has died aged 92 years.  Smith is most known for his groundbreaking old-age make-up techniques seen in many classics such as The Exorcist and The Hunger.

In 1984 Smith earned an Oscar win for his famous old-age make-up for Amadeus which saw him turn 44 year old  F Murray Abraham into 77 year old Salieri.

An inspiration to many artists including Rick Baker and Tom Savini, Smith’s techniques are still being used by artists today.  He was the pioneer is using foam latex and plastics for effects as well as transitioning make-up from black and white to colour.  His most famous technique is being the stretching the skin with latex to create the illusion of wrinkles.

With a back catalogue of work including The Godfather, Death Becomes Her and Taxi Driver, his work and legacy will live on. »

Smackdown 1973: Candy, Madeline, Linda, Sylvia, and Tatum O'Neal

31 July 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Behold the five Oscar-nominated Supporting Actresses of 1973: a "bitchin' babe" (Candy Clark), a pint-sized con-artist (Tatum O'Neal), a possessed teenager (Linda Blair), a selfish carnival dancer (Madeline Kahn), and a vinegary New York institution (Sylvia Sidney). 

The Nominees

 

Last month's featured year, 1964, gave us an extremely senior acting shortlist of Oscar regulars but the corresponding shortlist of 1973, apart from Sylvia Sidney who had been a respected working actress for nearly a half-century, skewed very new and very young and not just because it gave us the youngest Oscar winner of all time in Tatum O'Neal; she was 10 years and 148 days old. The four actresses nominated with Sidney were in their first flush of stardom and only acting in their first (O'Neal) second (Kahn & Clark) or third films (Blair). The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences obviously approved of their career choice.
