‘Conan the Barbarian’ at 35: How Darth Vader Helped Arnold Schwarzenegger Beat the Muscle Man Stereotype

‘Conan the Barbarian’ at 35: How Darth Vader Helped Arnold Schwarzenegger Beat the Muscle Man Stereotype
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s films have grossed $1.9 billion in North America. Among his classics are James Cameron’s 1984’s “The Terminator”; 1991’s “The Terminator 2: Judgment Day”; and 1994’s “True Lies,” as well as such hits as 1987’s “Predator” and 2012’s “The Expendables 2.”

His movie catch phrases such as “I’ll be back”; “Hasta la Vista, Baby”; and “Get to the chopper” have become part of the pop culture lexicon.

Schwarzenegger even served as the Governor of California from 2003 to 2011. And has recently has gone mano y mano in a Twitter feud with President Trump. Guess who won?

But would he have been as big a star — let alone as governor — without his breakout role in John Milius’ “Conan the Barbarian”? The violent, erotic R-rated sword-and-fantasy adventure based on the stories of 1930’s pulp fiction writer Robert E. Howard opened in 1,400 theaters on May 14, 1982. Though reviews were decidedly mixed — Variety

Peter Liguori to Exit as CEO of Tribune Media
Peter Liguori will step down as president and CEO of Tribune Media in March, the company said Wednesday.

Liguori, the former head of entertainment at Fox and FX, joined Tribune as president and CEO in January 2013, after the completion of its four-year bankruptcy reorganization. He has been rumored as a candidate to succeed Michael Lynton as CEO of Sony Corp.’s Hollywood operations.

“I believe that now is the ideal time for a new leader to steer today’s Tribune. As curious and excited as I am about pursuing new opportunities, I am equally grateful for the achievements, commitment and integrity of this company’s management team and its dedicated employees,” Liguori said.

During his tenure at the helm, the Chicago-based newspaper and TV station owner was transformed into a broadcast and entertainment-focused company. Liguori led the spinoff of its newspaper division into a separate company now known as Tronc. He

Sundance 2017 Women Directors: Meet Christina Clusiau — “Trophy”

Trophy

Christina Clusiau is a documentary filmmaker, cinematographer, and photojournalist based in Brooklyn, NY. In 2013, Clusiau co-founded Reel Peak Films, a production company specializing in short and long-form documentary films, commercials, and television content made with cinematic quality and journalistic integrity. She shot the Emmy-nominated web series “A Year in Space” in partnership with Time Magazine’s Red Border Films, as well as the feature documentary “Aida’s Secrets.”

Trophy” will premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on January 20. The film is co-directed by Shaul Schwarz.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

Cc: “Trophy” takes an in-depth look at the multi-billion dollar industry behind big-game hunting and breeding. We explore and question the complex consequences of imposing economic value on wild animals.

What are the ethical implications of our practices in treating animals as commodities? And does breeding and hunting offer some of the few remaining solutions to conserve and protect them?

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Cc: Coming from a background in photojournalism, I like getting close to people’s lives and bringing the viewer into worlds that they may know little about. I am curious and interested in a lot of subjects, especially the ones that are polarizing as in “Trophy.”

My interest in this story developed in a unique way. In 2013, my directing partner, Shaul Schwarz, stumbled across a picture of a man posing over an elephant that he had just hunted. He flipped to the next picture where the hunter was smiling, proudly, while cutting off the elephant’s tail. The pictures outraged him.

I grew up in northern Minnesota, where hunting is a very common practice. I spent a lot of time with friends in deer stands and camps, even though I never hunted myself. When Shaul shared that image, he never understood how people could hunt a deer, or a lion, or an elephant.

It wasn’t foreign to me because the idea and practice of it had always existed in my world. That pushed us to explore the subject more, and through our journey we learned that what seemed to be right and wrong isn’t so black and white; it’s more complex than that.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theater?

Cc: The ability for us to grapple with the complex issues of this subject is the same journey we hope that the audience will take. We want viewers to come into the theater with their preconceived notions of how they feel about this subject and leave with questions challenging their own beliefs while learning something new in the process.

W&H: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?

Cc: One of the biggest challenges was navigating the complexities of the subject and questioning my own beliefs.

Another was keeping access to the characters and the hunting industry, which is quite a closed industry, for the duration of the three-year production.

W&H: How did you get your film funded? Share some insights into how you got the film made.

Cc: Our prime funder was Impact Partners, and as the project continued we received grants and additional funding.

We also had incredible support from our producers and executive producers. They really believed in the film and kept pushing to get it made.

W&H: What does it mean for you to have your film play at Sundance?

Cc: It’s a great honor and a great jumping-off place for the film. The community that attends the festival is engaged, interested, and excited about films. To have a full theater the first time your finished film is on a big screen is both exciting and nerve-racking.

The film explores a complex subject that is at times tough to watch, but it’s important. I believe that people want to be part of the solution to conserve animals and delay their extinction, and this festival is a great place to start that conversation.

Also, I thank the programmers at Sundance for seeing through the complexity of this subject and wanting to program it.

W&H: What’s the best and worst advice you’ve received?

Cc: The best advice: Stay hungry. Stay humble.

The worst advice: That’s a tough one, and nothing specific comes to mind, but sometimes it’s challenging to be pushed to compromise in decisions that you feel are wrong for a project.

W&H: What advice do you have for other female directors?

Cc: Don’t quit. If someone shuts the door on you, climb through the window. It may sound cliché, but it takes a lot of perseverance and resilience to keep going on a project.

W&H: Name your favorite woman-directed film and why.

Cc: I have a lot favorites. One that comes to mind is “Bombay Beach” by Alma Har’el. It’s beautifully cinematic, lyrical, and shows such intimacy with the characters’ lives.

I really admire stories of people’s lives that are told in unique and beautiful ways.

W&H: Have you seen opportunities for women filmmakers increase over the last year due to the increased attention paid to the issue? If someone asked you what you thought needed to be done to get women more opportunities to direct, what would be your answer?

Cc: I am not sure if I have seen opportunities for women filmmakers increase or decrease specifically over the past year. I know there are a lot opportunities out there.

I think it’s important to keep highlighting the work of female directors and for organizations, collectives, and communities to continue creating space for us to be engaged with each other on projects.

Sundance 2017 Women Directors: Meet Christina Clusiau — “Trophy” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Hello, My Name is Doris

Sally Field bounces back in this story of mismatched love - or a romantic delusion... that is 3/4 charm and 1/4 wishful thinking.

Field fans should love it anyway.

Debbie Rochon Talks Model Hunger and Her First Time Directing

There are perhaps no more prolific actresses out there than horror icon Debbie Rochon. She has a list of credits to her name over 230 movies long and it's always growing. But she recently completed filming her directorial debut, Model Hunger, and can't wait to unleash it on the world.

Model Hunger stars Lynn Lowry, Tiffany Shepis, Carmine Capobianco, Brian Fortune, Michael Thurber, Aurelio Voltaire, Suzi Lorraine, Babette Bombshell, Geri Horn and Jayne Caswell. Rochon also enlisted the talents of well-known composer Henry Manfredini (who did extensive work on the Friday the 13th series) and a crew that she described as the best of the best for creating Model Hunger.

With such an extensive acting career, one wonders why Rochon never directed in the past as she's been in the entertainment business for most of her adult life. What finally triggered that desire to get her working on the other side of the camera?

Pumping Iron and the birth of the 80s action hero

  • Den of Geek
Feature Ryan Lambie 19 Mar 2014 - 06:21

The 1977 docu-drama Pumping Iron launched Schwarzenegger's career, and led to an era of fitness obsession and action heroes, Ryan writes...

In February 1976, the Whitney Museum in New York played host to a highly unusual exhibit: Arnold Schwarzenegger, clad in little more than a tiny pair of brown briefs, posing like a Greek statue on a rotating platform. Around him, some of the Manhattan art scene's most famous critics sat and pontificated.

Called Articulate Muscle: The Male Body In Art, the exhibition included two fellow Mr Universe bodybuilders, Frank Zane and Ed Corney, plus a panel of artists and historians, who discussed the notion of "the body itself as an art medium". The event was inspired and organised by Charles Gaines, a former weight lifter and author of the book Pumping Iron, a candid and in-depth account of bodybuilding with photographs by George Butler.

Originally expected to attract around 300 visitors,

What are the movies that audiences loved but the critics hated?

Analysis of 10,000 movies reveals the films with the highest disparity between critic and audience reviews

There are some movies you'll just go and see no matter what the critics say. Maybe it's a big dumb comedy and you feel like a laugh, or there's that one actor who you'll watch no matter what. Conversely, there are some critics who can have a big influence on what you'll see, no matter what your friends say – you know their work, and trust their recommendations.

So, what are the movies that people loved, but critics hated? And what about those movies that got rave reviews but just didn't click with audiences?

To try and answer these questions I've analysed 10,000 movies from 1970 to 2013 in the Rotten Tomatoes database, and determined the difference in audience score and critic score by subtracting the former from the latter. This gives us an index of audience-critic agreement, which

Joe Weider obituary

Bodybuilding guru who built up a fitness empire and helped Arnold Schwarzenegger break into show business

Ben and Joe Weider turned bodybuilding into a worldwide phenomenon: part sport, part beauty pageant and part lifestyle. The younger brother, Ben, expanded their International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness, in their home town of Montreal, into a hugely profitable outfit and also became a philanthropist and renowned Napoleonic scholar. Joe, more flamboyant and a relentless self-promoter sometimes accused by rivals of harbouring a Napoleon complex, moved to California, where he kept the various Weider enterprises in the public eye. Joe has died aged 93.

It was Joe who, in 1968, brought a relatively unknown Austrian bodybuilder, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to Los Angeles. His repeated success in the Weiders' Mr Olympia contest led Schwarzenegger into show business and by starring in the film Stay Hungry (1976) and the documentary Pumping Iron (1977), he put himself, and bodybuilding, on the map.
