Inside 'The Get Down': How Baz Luhrmann Recreated the Birth of Hip-Hop

16 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Baz Luhrmann's resplendent, hyperactive Netflix series The Get Down documents hip-hop in the days before it was truly documented. A colorful, graffiti-strewn 1977 Bronx tableau about a gifted, lovesick poet named Ezekiel (Justice Smith) who finds himself drawn into the burgeoning culture exploding at block parties, the series sets the action years before docudramas like Wild Style, Kurtis Blow's performance of "The Breaks" on Soul Train and rap was etched to vinyl — even before landmark pieces like Robert Ford Jr.'s Billboard breakdown "Jive Talking N.Y. DJs" started »

Saturday night forever: the best disco movies ride again

5 August 2016 3:12 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From blockbusters like Saturday Night Fever to obscurities such as Derek Jarman shooting a night in a London club, a New York film festival hits the floor

Titled after Donna Summer’s deliciously suggestive dance floor hit from 1979, Dim All the Lights: Disco and the Movies is a tightly curated repertory programme of disco-inspired cinema running at New York’s Metrograph from 5 to 11 August.

This thematically and stylistically wide-ranging collection of films reaches well above and beyond the widespread perception of the disco scene as a gaudy, lycra-slathered vessel for peppy escapism to explore its complicated relationship to gender, race, sexuality and memory. That’s not to say it ignores disco’s main draw: the music. Whether it’s Summer’s unbound performance of Last Dance in the La-set rarity Thank God its Friday (1978), or John Travolta, as white-suited jiver Tony Manero, tearing it up to the Bee Gees’ Stayin »

Interview: Justin Timberlake on ‘Trolls,’ Fatherhood and Making New Music

21 July 2016 6:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Diego — “It’s just unabashed,” Justin Timberlake says about the Comic-Con experience. He’s there this week for his second-ever trip to the geek confab, after touring the festivities incognito as Ernie from “Sesame Street” when he was there to promote the film “In Time” five years ago. “Where else can you find Gandalf and a Stormtrooper having a beer? They go hard here.”

This time he’s among the consumer masses to pitch DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls,” releasing Nov. 4. A cheery musical wrought with colorful, tactile-like craftsmanship, the film manifests a mythology behind the ubiquitous creature dolls originally created by Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam: The trolls live a deliriously happy existence, singing on cue, taking breaks throughout the day to hug. They are hunted, meanwhile, by a monstrous race called the Bergin, who get their own happy highs by eating the trolls.

From Camp Crystal Lake to the Vineyard: An Interview with Adrienne King

21 June 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Editor’s Note: Our own Scott Drebit recently hosted panels at the sixth annual Calgary Horror Con. At the three-day event, Scott caught up with Adrienne King, who discussed playing the first final girl in the Friday the 13th franchise, her interest in painting, returning to acting, and teaming up with Valley View to create Crystal Lake Wines.]

Hi Adrienne, thanks for sitting down with Daily Dead. I’d like to start off with Friday the 13th. It’s always been my belief that Halloween is unique and an anomaly, and that Friday the 13th really set the tone for the slashers that followed.

Adrienne King: I think so, too. In terms of women not being victims, or a woman being the killer, it hadn’t really been done before. And sometimes I think about if it was accidentally empowering women, or if they just wanted to do something that had a twist. And who would have ever guessed that the killer could have been a woman? A sweet lady, too, Betsy Palmer. No one saw that coming.

My generation really didn’t know Betsy Palmer. But when my parents saw her on the screen, they were like, “Oh my god! Betsy Palmer is the killer!” They »

On this day in pop culture history: Both ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Gremlins’ premiered

8 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was 32 years ago today that not one but two classic horror comedies opened in theaters. Yes, Ghostbusters was released on the same day as Gremlins. It’s hard to believe that these two movies opened against each other, but 1984 was a different time, when opening weekend numbers weren’t given the same weight as they are now and films stayed in theaters much longer. Ghostbusters that dominated the U.S. box office that opening weekend but not by much — it earned $13.6 million then, while Gremlins grossed $12.5 million. The Bill Murray movie became the clear winner of the box office over the summer, though, holding the No. 1 spot for seven consecutive weeks. Ghostbusters, of course, has a very buzzy and headline-grabbing (for better or worse or mass hysteria) follow-up film on the way this summer, a reboot of the original. There’s reportedly a new Gremlins on the way too: »

Remember Gandhi? Baby Jake? Harlow?

7 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in movie related history...

1893 Mahatma Gandhi committed his first act of civil disobedience refusing to move from a whites only first class section of a train. He had a valid ticket, after all. He was forcibly ejected in South Africa's Pietermaritzburg Railway Station. This event and many others from his nonviolent revolution were reenacted by Ben Kingsley in Gandhi, Oscar's Best Picture of 1982. (You can cover a lot with a running time of 191 minutes.)

1909 Jessica Tandy is born. Steals Michelle Pfeiffer's Oscar 80 years, 9 months, and 19 days later.

1917 Rat Pack royalty Dean Martin is born. Centennial next year.

1928 Perpetually underappreciated and totally awesome director James Ivory is born. Later makes masterpieces like A Room With a View and Howards End. Where's his Honorary Oscar, AMPAS? He's 87 people get on that immediately. 

1937 The original Bombshell, Jean Harlow dies suddenly at the peak of her fame at the age of 26. Where's her biopic? »

John Travolta and Rob Lowe on Comedy, Favorite Roles and the Secret of their Long Careers

1 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When John Travolta sat down with Rob Lowe at Variety’s “Actors on Actors” studio, they bonded immediately. It wasn’t just about their impressively long careers, though they did swap tales about the pitfalls they’ve faced throughout. Or their ability to transition from television to film and back again. But Lowe stunned Travolta (and the audience) with his tale of being disappointed at missing out on the role of Christian Troy in “Nip/Tuck” — and confronting Ryan Murphy. When he finally met the producer, Lowe said Murphy told him, “Rob, don’t you know I wrote that part for you?” But the script never made its way to the actor, because, as Lowe recalled, Murphy was “not Ryan Murphy yet,” he said. “Isn’t that a great Hollywood story?”

John Travolta: What I find the most interesting, is that whether you are doing a dramatic character or »

15 Actors You Won't Believe Have Never Won an Oscar

20 February 2016 9:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year around Oscar time it seems like we always end up falling into the same debate: Who deserves to win best (Insert Category) here. There are many actors, directors, writers and others who have been nominated but have never taken home the gold statuette. Now, the reality is that films take a long time for directors to get made and writers take a long time to get a script right. But actors have a better set of odds, because they can make multiple films in any given year.

This isn't to say that acting is easier than any of the aforementioned jobs. It just means that, if the Academy likes an actor, and they make a lot of films, their chances to gain Oscar gold are that much better. A great case in point is how many times they has been nominated? 19. How many Oscars has she taken home? »

10 Things We Learned From Spike Lee's New Michael Jackson Doc

5 February 2016 6:26 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Michael Jackson made bigger records than Off the Wall, but he arguably never made a better one — the album's masterful fusion of funk, disco, pop and Quiet Storm R&B captures the singer at his most effervescent. A deluxe edition of the record arrives February 26th, accompanied by a new documentary, Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall, helmed by Spike Lee, who also directed a movie about the 25th anniversary of Bad. From Motown to Off the Wall premiered at Sundance in January, and it airs on Showtime February 5th. »

The Man Who Fell To Earth has finally gone home and we look back at David Bowie's beautiful life

11 January 2016 3:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I was not much older than my oldest son is now, either fourth or fifth grade, the older girl next door who spent several years slowly initiating me to both the secret worlds of rock'n'roll and kissing, thus assuring those things would forever be linked in my mind, played me one of the many 45s she kept in a big giant carry-around box with the Rolling Stone lips on the cover. This one, she assured me, was "mind-blowing." She was right. The first time I heard "Space Oddity," it felt like I lifted off the ground with that countdown, infinity in endless mandala opening above me, as that strange voice, so thin at times, so powerful at others, sang with such longing, such powerful desire to both reach back to a humanity left behind and rocket on into whatever cosmic possibilities lay ahead. I must have played that record »

Video: Nine Actors Whose Careers Got a Big Boost from Quentin Tarantino

6 January 2016 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What jumps to mind when you hear the phrase "Quentin Tarantino movie"? Hyperviolence? A bunch of different B-movies pastiched into something new? A lot of dialogue with a lot of bad language? That one "F" word in particular? Any of those could be right, but there's another thing many of Tarantino's movies have in common: a big, meaty role for an actor who's maybe in need of a career boost. In the case of the Tarantino movie currently in theaters, The Hateful Eight, the role is that of Daisy Domergue, a wily, foul-mouthed criminal played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now Leigh hasn't been without work. »
