'Maleficent' and the Rise of the Grim Fairy Tale

29 May 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The trailers teased glimpses of Sleeping Beauty's iconic villainess, accompanied by a gothic cover of "Once Upon a Dream." Gone were the 1959 animated film's Technicolor wonders, replaced with shades of blacks and blues, while Lana del Rey's vocals enveloped Mary Costa and Bill Shirley's airy duet with jazz-club smokiness. Even when the sneak peek appeared to throw a bone of sympathy towards the titular evil character, it brooded with the faux-angst of 9th grade poetry. This was what you could expect from  Maleficent — Disney's early bid for summer-film dominance, »

Disney Hires Magician to Produce a Movie about Magic

28 March 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney recently picked up a movie pitch that is based around the world of magic, and they hired a real illusionist named Derek DelGaudio to produce the film. The movie doesn't have a title yet, and all we know at this point is that it tackles "the history of magic’s last 100 years as seen through the eyes of one magician." The script for the film will be written by Keith Bunin

DelGaudio is an award-winning magician who is known for his sleight of hand and card tricks.  He's also an artist-in-residence at Walt Disney Imagineering so he already has a connection with the studio. He's the one that helped bring this project to life.

The movie will also be produced by Justin Springer, who worked on Tron: Legacy and is also developing a live-action version of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, and Disney's remake of The Black Hole.

I'm a huge fan of magic, »

SXSW: 11 must-see movies on the menu in Texas

7 March 2014 2:28 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Now in its 27th year, SXSW is like the late bloomer who stuns his parents by announcing his basement-based online venture is now worth a million bucks. The Austin, Texas-based festival isn’t glamorous, like Cannes, or corporate, like Toronto, or even insistently anti-Hollywood, like Sundance. Compared to its more-pedigreed rivals, SXSW is simply more chill. It puts the festive back in festival — there’s a giant music and growing interactive element as well — and artists of all sorts are eager to come to the party. Jimmy Kimmel Live will broadcast there for a week. Lady Gaga will drop in. »

Updated: Stunning Mondo Posters Released For Disney Classics

6 March 2014 2:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’re always blown away by the pieces the Mondo studio releases, and today is no different. Friday will see the Mondo Gallery, located in Texas, open its doors to their Disney exhibition, with an array of prints celebrating some of the biggest films in animation history as part of South By Southwest or SXSW 2104 as most of us know it now!

I’ve been a Disney fan (particularly Pixar) since I was tiny, so to see these in stunning, high-quality detail is spine-tingling. My favourites include Wall-e and Up by Kevin Tong, and Alice In Wonderland by Ken Taylor. As with most of Mondo’s work, these will probably be up for sale at some point, so if you’re lucky enough to purchase one consider yourself a very lucky film fan.

Maximilian Schell obituary

2 February 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor and director who brought dark good looks and a commanding presence to his roles

Austrian by birth, Swiss by circumstance and international by reputation, Maximilian Schell, who has died aged 83, was a distinguished actor, director, writer and producer. However, he will be best remembered as an actor, especially for his Oscar-winning performance in Stanley Kramer's Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) – an early highlight among scores of television and movie appearances. He also directed opera, worked tirelessly in the theatre and made six feature films, including Marlene (1984) - a tantalising portrait of Dietrich, his co-star in Judgment, who is heard being interviewed but not seen, except in movie extracts.

Schell courted controversy and much of his work, including The Pedestrian (1973), dealt with the second world war, its attendant crimes and the notion of collective guilt. In 1990, when he was offered a special award for his contributions to German film, he refused to accept it. »

Academy Award Winner Maximilian Schell Dies at 83

1 February 2014 11:59 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The AP is reporting that Austrian-born actor Maximilian Schell, a fugitive from Adolf Hitler who became a Hollywood favorite and won an Oscar for his role as a defense attorney in “Judgment at Nuremberg,” has died.  He was 83.

Schell’s agent, Patricia Baumbauer, said Saturday he died overnight at a hospital in the Austrian city of Innsbruck following a “sudden illness.”

It was only his second Hollywood role, as defense attorney Hans Rolfe in Stanley Kramer’s classic “Judgment at Nuremberg,” that earned him wide international acclaim. Schell’s impassioned but unsuccessful defense of four Nazi judges on trial for sentencing innocent victims to death won him the 1961 Academy Award for best actor. Schell had first played Rolfe in a 1959 episode of the television program “Playhouse 90.”

Despite being type-cast for numerous Nazi-era films, Schell’s acting performances in the mid-1970s also won him renewed popular acclaim, earning him »

Rest in Peace: Oscar Winner and Former Phantom of the Opera Maximilian Schell

1 February 2014 11:47 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

One of the greats has left us, and we'd be remiss to not mention the passing of Oscar winner Maximilian Schell this morning (Feb. 1, 2014) at the age of 83 in Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria. He didn't dabble in the horror genre often, but when he did, it was memorable.

Per the AP via ABC News, Schell's agent, Patricia Baumbauer, said Saturday he died overnight at a hospital in the Austrian city of Innsbruck following a "sudden illness."

Austrian-born Schell won his Best Actor Oscar in 1962 for Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) and also appeared in such genre fare as Deep Impact, The Black Hole, John Carpenter's Vampires, The Vampyre Wars, Darkness, House of the Sleeping Beauties, The Eighteenth Angel, and 1983 TV movie "The Phantom of the Opera," in which he played The Phantom opposite Jane Seymour and Michael York.

1 February 2014 9:11 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Oscar-winning actor Maximilian Schell has died at the age of 83.

The actor and director passed away overnight at a hospital in Innsbruck, Austria following a "sudden and serious illness", his agent Patricia Baumbauer confirmed to the Austria Press Agency.

Schell - who was a fugitive from Adolf Hitler - won an Oscar for his performance in Judgment at Nuremberg, in which he played a defence attorney. The 1961 film was only his second role in Hollywood.

He also starred as Dr Hans Reinhardt in Disney's The Black Hole in 1979, and scored two further Oscar nominations for his roles in The Man in the Glass Booth and Julia.

As well as acting and directing, Schell was a highly successful concert pianist and conductor, performing with orchestras in Berlin and Vienna.

Schell is survived by his daughter Nastassja Schell, from his 20-year marriage to Natalya Andreychenko.
