22 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Last year, Meryl Streep received her 20th Academy Award nomination for her performance in Florence Foster Jenkins. Streep’s nod makes her the most nominated performer in Oscars history. 

In honor of Streep’s incredible feat (which she celebrated with an epic gif of her dancing; see below), we’re looking back at the roles that got her the accolades.

Sundance London 2017: Walking Out review

5 June 2017 6:25 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Hannah Woodhead

In some parts of America, hunting with your father is a given. In England it can be difficult to comprehend the idea of trudging up a mountain to shoot some birds or moose with your old man – the whole idea feels very cinematic, very Last of the Mohicans or The Deer Hunter. It’s no surprise then that there have been plenty of films over the years that have used big game hunting as a central part of their story, most recently Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant in 2015. Walking Out is the latest in a noble tradition of American films made about the subject, and in many ways bears similarities to Iñárritu’s film, but unfortunately, can’t replicate that which made The Revenant such a success.

Taking place in the present day, Walking Out sees fourteen-year-old David travel from his home in Texas to spend time with his father Cal, »

Top 10 Movies Filmed in Thailand

23 May 2017 10:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Over the years there have been a great number of movies that have been filmed in Thailand, some of those films were supposed to be filmed there whilst others were filmed there as a stand in for places such as Cambodia and Vietnam.

One of the main benefits of using Thailand is that the production costs can be kept very low if the movie requires things such as glorious beaches, jungles or even elephants! Plus, with an army of experienced film crew members residing in Thailand production staffing costs can also be kept low too by hiring local yet skilled personnel.

There are of course plenty of benefits for Thailand as a whole when any major films are filmed there, as it helps the tourist industry no end, with many people wishing to visit many of the places a film was filmed at.

With that in mind we are now »

Meryl Streep's Marriage Has Lasted as Long as Her Career

8 May 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Meryl Streep knows a thing or two about long-term success, and her marriage is no exception. She and sculptor Don Gummer have been married since 1978, and he's been by her side at a number of industry events and award shows in the years since. Meryl may have been mentioned more than God in Oscars acceptance speeches over the last decade, but at the 2012 Academy Awards, it was her husband who received a sweet shout-out. When Meryl won best actress for The Iron Lady, she said, "First I'm going to thank Don because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play him out with the music, and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives you've given me." The pair first met after her partner John Cazale - of The Godfather and The Deer Hunter - died of bone cancer. She »

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: ‘Twin Peaks,’ Film Noir, Steve McQueen, and More

6 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We’re knocking on the door of summer, and that means lots of big properties are ready to be unleashed. But it’s not too late to read books exploring some recent films, as well as some new works about Sherry Lansing, film noir, and Steve McQueen. Let’s start with a unique look at David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.

The Essential Wrapped In Plastic: Pathways to Twin Peaks by John Thorne

When Twin Peaks debuted on ABC in 1990, there were no message boards in which fans could argue and dissect the latest episodes. Starting in 1992, however, there was Wrapped In Plastic, the immortal Peaks’ fanzine. Just in time for the series return on Showtime is The Essential Wrapped In Plastic: Pathways to Twin Peaks. Here, Wip co-editor John Thorne brings together some of the publication’s most vital, important essays. Every episode is included, but what makes the book »

The Accidental Tourist

2 May 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Is it a modern classic? I think so. Lawrence Kasdan’s best movie embraces characters often lampooned or dismissed, or stereotyped as kooks — introverts, extroverts, people trying to make personal connections and those trying to avoid them. William Hurt finds his best role and Geena Davis won an Oscar for hers; thirty years later the entire cast feel like beloved friends.

The Age of Shadows (Kim Ji-woon)

Premiering out of competition at the 73rd Venice Film Festival, writer/director Jee-woon Kim’s return to Korean-language cinema after a brief stint in Hollywood with the Schwarzenegger-starrer The Last Stand turns out to be a worthy choice that makes »

Anatahan (Josef von Sternberg)

Josef von Sternberg called Anatahan his best film. Borne from more than a decade’s worth of frustration with the studio system, it was, as the last picture he completed, his stamp on his time as a director. Even then, when released in 1953, it was only released in a butchered format, and, as it often goes in such cases, was subsequently abandoned by popular consciousness. But a few times each year, cinephiles (at least »

First ‘Guardians of the Galaxy v. 2’ Reactions Are in and…Surprise, Everyone Loves It

18 April 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Plus, a plethora of post-credit scenes and news about vol. 3

There are still a couple of weeks before James Gunn releases Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, but recently the film was screened for the press and despite a review embargo being in place, some took to Twitter to share their immediate reactions. The overall assessment? Check it for yourself:

Angie J. Han of Mashable called it “the McU at its very best,” while Mike Ryan at Uproxx says the film is “very fun” and “Baby Groot steals the show.” Germain Lussier of Gizmodo and io9 describes the film as “filled with tons of surprises and an unexpected amount of emotion,” and Anna Klassen of Bustle calls it “action-packed” with “even more classic 70s/early 80s music cues.”

Furthermore, when one member of the press revealed there’s not one, not two, not even three but four post-credit scenes, Gunn himself joined the conversation to reveal there »

Donnie Darko (Richard Kelly)

Last year marked the 15-year anniversary of Richard Kelly’s debut cult curio, Donnie Darko. While the film’s cult-status has elevated it into its own separate canon alongside other 21st-century indie-cult hits, Kelly’s two other films — the positively delirious and daring Southland Tales and the labyrinthine sci-fi period piece The Box — prove that he is a director deserving of much greater consideration. Sadly it’s been about eight years since a new »

Paterson (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch proved he was back in a major way with Only Lovers Left Alive a few years ago, and the streak continues with Paterson, a calm, introspective drama with such positive views on marriage and creativity that I was left floored. In following the cyclical life of Adam Driver‘s Paterson, a bus driver in Paterson, New Jersey, who also has dreams of being a poet, Jarmusch superbly shows that one’s own life »

20th Century Women (Mike Mills)

That emotional profundity most directors try to build to across an entire film? Mike Mills achieves it in every scene of 20th Century Women. There’s such a debilitating warmness to both the vibrant aesthetic and construction of its dynamic characters as Mills quickly soothes one into his story that you’re all the more caught off-guard as the flurry of emotional wallops are presented. Without ever hitting a tonal misstep, Mills’ latest »

Being There (Hal Ashby)

On paper, there’s an implausibility to the central conceit of Being There that could have resulted in a four-quadrant studio comedy forgotten soon after its release. However, with Hal Ashby’s delicate touch — bringing Jerzy Kosiński and Robert C. Jones‘ adaptation to life — and Peter Sellers‘ innocent deadpan delivery, this 1979 film is a carefully observed look at how those we interact with can offer an introspective mirror into our own lives. “There’s so much left to do, »

Musical Memes and Trading Coffee for Car Chases with Hans Zimmer

16 March 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“Who doesn’t want to be inventive and weird?”

Hans Zimmer is one of the greatest, most prolific film composers alive with a plethora of scores so recognizable he’s taking them to Coachella. Anyone whose themes are so powerful they can be appreciated under a music festival’s haze has to be remarkable. He’s also willing to piss off his publicist by digging into goofy questions long after his schedule has told him to move on. And by God, I respect that. Zimmer sat down with me to discuss his new online MasterClass, trading coffee for car chases, and musical memes.

Hans Zimmer: I’m excited that you are Film School Rejects because I am definitely a music school reject.

Q: You’re doing the Diy thing and putting on your own school.

Hz: Something like that. I know so many people that wanted to make a movie — that needed to make a movie »
