Hmwybs: "The Turning Point"

Bancroft & Maclaine reminisce in The Turning PointBest Shot 1977 Party. Chapter 2

The Turning Point (1977)

Directed by: Herbert Ross

Cinematography by: Robert Surtees

When The Turning Point is remembered today, on the rare occasion that you hear it name-checked, it is nearly always in connection to its status as Oscar's all time loser (11 nominations without a win). That "achievement" was later shared when Steven Spielberg's The Color Purple (1985) met the same Oscar fate, entering the competition as a very big ticket and coming away empty-handed. It's surely no coincidence that both films are women's pictures. Oscar has grown increasingly wary of films about and for women over their 88 year history; that's not a mark on the films themselves but a stain on film culture and the Oscars. 1977 was in some significant ways, the very last Oscar year to be dominated by women. The sole "boys" movie up for the top prize was Star Wars, »

Han Solo is Not in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

8 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Oh, the Star Wars rumor mill... How you entertain me with some of your more ludicrous theories and speculation, most of which can be chalked up to the fan-fiction created on forums and comment threads by people writing about what they wished they'd see. That's how we wound up with all these whispers that maybe, perhaps just maybe, Han Solo would wind up making an... Read More »

Ted Sarandos: No Slowdown in Netflix’s Spending on Original Series

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ted Sarandos has no intention of putting the breaks on Netflix’s volume of original programming. The streaming giant’s chief content officer said Wednesday that the industry’s hand-wringing over the question of whether there’s too much TV reflects an outmoded mindset about the way people consume entertainment.

“There are too many mediocre, safe shows on linear television — I’m with you,” Sarandos said during his executive Q&A session as part of Netflix’s portion of the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

Sarandos was pressed on the question of whether Netflix’s originals are in danger of getting lost in the shuffle because it is turning out so much content at such a fast clip. But Netflix’s model is about making sure it has a broad range of content to appeal to various subsets of subscribers, not all of its subscribers flocking to a few shows.

Netflix Boss Says Don’t Believe the Ratings You See for His Shows

9 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ted Sarandos is not impressed with the ratings he’s seeing reported for Netflix.

In recent months, both Symphony Advanced Media and Nielsen have released data that purports to tally how many people are watching Netflix series. But Sarandos pointed out that the services claimed very different numbers for “Orange is the New Black.”

“Both Symphony and Nielsen claim accuracy,” Sarandos said, before pointing out that one service’s “Oitnb” viewership was two times the other’s. “Either number, if true, would be great for Netflix. Especially since it’s only U.S. viewing and it’s only for the first 35 days of release.”

Sarandos points out that ratings, and reporting on ratings, is an “important piece of the business puzzle for ad-supported networks, for sure. But subscriber growth, not advertising, drives our revenues. We’ll do great by attracting more members… The performance of any given title in the U. »

Why We're Obsessed with Netflix's Stranger Things

11 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Oh Netflix, you've done it again. We're officially obsessed with Stranger Things, the newest show that the streaming service has blessed us with. It's honestly everything we never realized we needed very badly, and we literally can't stop talking about it. Ask anyone we've come in contact with in the past few days—we're insufferable. There are more than enough reasons to binge every episode, and to then binge them again, and then to consume every article about the show, and then to probably watch it again, and we're going to lay a few of them out for you—spoiler free!

Star Wars: Rogue One Won't Have Han Solo or Hayden Christensen

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars Celebration didn't reveal nearly as much about the future of the franchise on the movie side of things as fans had hoped, but any news that was revealed got left in the dust in the wake of San Diego Comic-Con. During Star Wars Celebration, there were more interviews than anyone could possibly have kept up with. That being the case, some of those kind of got buried and it looks like some big news got lost in the shuffle. The big news being that Han Solo and Hayden Christensen will not be in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The fan site Star Wars Underworld has uncovered a couple of interviews with Extra from Star Wars Celebration that made these confirmations seperately. Starting with Han Solo, there have been prominent rumors that everyone's favorite smuggler was going to be making a cameo in the movie. It would make some sense, »

Watch Conan's Young Han Solo Auditions with 50 Cent, Adam Sandler and More

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month during Star Wars Celebration, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy made it official by announcing Alden Ehrenreich as the Young Han Solo, who will star in the upcoming spinoff Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. A week later, during Comic-Con, Conan O'Brien took his late-night talk show to San Diego for a series of live tapings, where he showed fans some of the other major stars who also tried out for the Han Solo role, before Alden Ehrenreich won the coveted part. As you can see, the young actor had plenty of worthy competitors.

Of course, this video that surfaced on Team Coco YouTube after its broadcast is fake, with several beloved comedians and other celebrities donning that iconic Han Solo vest to try out for the role. This audition reel features stars such as Bill Hader, Will Arnett, Melissa McCarthy, Thomas Middleditch, Jodie Foster, Adam Sandler, Kumail Nanjiani, »

Newswire: Sorry everyone, but there won’t be any Han Solo or Hayden Christensen in Rogue One

12 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Star Wars Celebration that took place in London earlier this month gave fans a more in-depth introduction to Alden Ehrenreich, who was recently crowned the new/young Han Solo. Unfortunately, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller didn’t actually reveal any details about the Star Wars spin-off, but there was a lot of talk of various Star Wars cast and crew members making appearances in the new films. Episode VIII director Rian Johnson has a cameo in Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One, with Lord and Miller set to appear in some capacity in Johnson’s Star Wars movie.

Other guest appearance rumors have cropped up, naturally, including the possibility of a young Han Solo zipping past Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). But according to Star Wars Underworld, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards actually shot down the idea at the Star Wars Celebration, telling reporters that “I’m not sure if I »

Movie Review – Star Trek Beyond (2016)

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond, 2016.

Directed by Justin Lin.

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Sofia Boutella and Idris Elba.

Synopsis:

Three years into their five year mission, the crew of the USS Enterprise face their biggest test yet upon encountering a hostile alien force in unexplored territory, which sees Captain James T. Kirk truly discover what it means to be a Starfleet Captain…

We were all a bit worried about this, weren’t we? Let’s be honest. Star Trek Beyond could have been quite the disaster. A production which changed gears very late on, with a script by co-star Simon Pegg & writer Doug Jung written late in the day, not to mention riding in over three years later off the back of Star Trek Into Darkness, a movie that’s depreciated significantly in the public consciousness since release as a picture »

A new ‘Star Wars’ theory argues Rey has a dark lineage

14 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that we know who Jon Snow’s parents are, perhaps the biggest mystery in geek culture is “Who spawned Rey from Star Wars?” Conspiracy theories abound, and each is plausible in its own way. Some believe that she’s the daughter of Luke Skywalker and Jyn Erso. Others are convinced she’s somehow related to Ben Kenobi. But there’s one theory that’s much darker than fans might want to believe.   Check out the video above or below to see exactly who she might be related to. »

Batman: The Killing Joke Hits Big at The Box Office with $3M

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. held a world premiere screening of their latest DC Universe Original Movie Batman: The Killing Joke at Comic-Con last weekend, but even if you weren't in San Diego, fans could still see this long-awaited adaptation on the big screen. Through a partnership with Fathom Events, this movie came to theaters for a special screening on Monday, July 25. Today we have word that the movie fared quite well, earning a cool $3.1 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Killing Joke's $3.1 million was third best at the daily box office, behind last weekend's winner Star Trek Beyond ($6.2 million) and The Secret Life of Pets ($4.1 million). However, The Killing Joke did have a better per-screen average than every other movie on Monday, earning $2,396 per screen from 1,325 theaters. Due to overwhelming demand, this movie became Fathom Events' widest release in the company's history, and they even added a second date on July »

Rumors Debunked: Don't Expect To See Han Solo Or Hayden Christensen In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

14 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Disney and Lucasfilm certainly took a risk when they decided to shoot for a Han Solo movie. Not only is this an iconic character in pop culture and film, but he's a character that's only been portrayed by one man: the legend Harrison Ford. To top it all off, he's a character we've seen at a young age, and one that we know exists as Harrison Ford in the current continuity in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As such, going back into the Star Wars timeline and having him be portrayed by a different actor was always a tall order.

But amidst all this, there was a potential in. Sure, it would always be jarring initially, but Lucasfilm had an opportunity to introduce the character ahead of the release of his own standalone film. Enter the rumors of Han Solo appearing in the first Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One. »

"Rogue One" Han Solo, Anakin Rumors Untrue

16 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite the heavy reshoots over the summer, the buzz surrounding "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" has certainly improved in the wake of the Star Wars Celebration Europe convention earlier this month.

A new featurette only stirred excitement, while one or two cast members let slip a few spoilers that have got people talking. Aside from that though, rumors still continue to swirl about two potential cameos in the film - that of Alden Ehrenreich's young Han Solo and Hayden Christensen in his Anakin Skywalker guise will make an appearance.

Now, speaking with ExtraTV, director Gareth Edwards and producer Kathleen Kennedy unequivocally shot down both rumors - seems this won't have as much fan service as some fans were hoping.

Edwards says: "I'm not sure if I'm allowed to this but I think I should. I can put to bed, Han Solo is Not in the movie." Edwards was »
