Bradley Cooper and Jimmy Fallon's Late-Night Laughing Fit Is Contagious

22 October 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

When Bradley Cooper stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday, he and Jimmy Fallon ended up with a serious case of the giggles, and they just couldn't get it together. The pair played Egg Russian Roulette, and all the flying yolk had them cracking up, but they couldn't stop laughing during the sit-down interview, either. For one thing, they were sporting that silly visor look Bradley debuted earlier this month. And for another, every time Jimmy tried to ask Bradley serious questions about The Elephant Man, they ended up in tears because they were laughing so hard. Just try not to crack up watching their hilarious interaction above! »

'Freak' is a slur and 'Freak Show' is propagating it. Disabled people deserve better | Howard Sherman

26 September 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The real horror story is the pop-culture return of a word meant to push the vulnerable back to the margins

Are you freaked out?

Some people in show business want you to be: the deeply unsettling ads for American Horror Story Freak Show are determined to make you associate freaks with something scary and strange. In an effort to recall the very side shows in which John Merrick was displayed, the pending Broadway revival of The Elephant Man already has theatre signage imploring passers-by to Behold an extraordinary freak of nature (though the actor portraying Merrick isnt made up as such). And who knows how many people may come out of Side Show humming the often-sung and whispered:

Come look at the freaks

Come gape at the geeks

Guy Jenkin & Andy Hamilton interview: What We Did, Peppa Pig

25 September 2014 2:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The team behind What We Did On Our Holiday tell us about the film, fake motorways, and the art of voicework in Peppa Pig...

What We Did On Our Holiday is the feature debut from the brains behind Outnumbered, Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton. It's a bold film, that stars David Tennant, Billy Connolly and Rosamund Pike. And we got to spend some time with the pair to chat about the movie. Here's how the conversation went...

I've just been reading about your film on the BBFC website. The extended guidance it gives to parents is as worth a look as always, but it did get me thinking if you had a family audience in mind when you wrote the film? And did you have to tune anything with the BBFC?

Gj: We haven't been in any negotiation! We don't really think about positioning the film when we're writing it. »

Seymour Bernstein in Ethan Hawke's Seymour: An Introduction: "Seymour thinks that I'm trying to pawn him off as this youthful 85 year-old."

New York Film Festival Director of Programming and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones held a post screening discussion during the press conference for Seymour: An Introduction, with the director Ethan Hawke and his subject Seymour Bernstein. Hawke is currently starring in Richard Linklater's Boyhood with Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater and he directed The New Group revival of Sam Shepard's A Lie Of The Mind with Alessandro Nivola in 2010. Nivola will star with Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson in The Elephant Man this fall on Broadway.

Directors' Trademarks: David Lynch

16 September 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Directors’ Trademarx is back! At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This month we examine the trademark style and calling signs of David Lynch as director.

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

Unlike the other people who have been featured in this column in the past, David Lynch is less a director and more an artist. He is a writer, a visual artist, an actor, and a musician in addition to being a director. Above all, he is an interesting personality. His style is best described as surreal, and is not for the faint of heart. His films are typically sparse in action (but frequently violent), heavy in drama, and dwell in the bizarre. As such, despite being so well-renowned for his unique perspective, his films don’t have a lot of »

Review: David Lynch's "Eraserhead" (1977) Criterion Special Blu-ray Edition

16 September 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Eraserhead” (Directed by David Lynch, 1977)

(The Criterion Collection)

Everything Ugly Is Beautiful

By Raymond Benson

One of the many excellent supplements that appear on this disc is a rare video interview from 1979 with David Lynch (and cinematographer Frederick Elmes). For those of us who have aged along with the director, it is a striking glimpse at a young artist at the beginning of his strange and wonderful career. In it, he explains that he is attracted to sometimes harsh, oppressive settings, such as the nightmarish industrial cityscape in Eraserhead. “What everyone else finds ugly, I find beautiful,” he says proudly. And the director has pretty much remained true to his word, hasn’t he?

Eraserhead is a landmark picture, but its original release in 1977 was slow to reach an audience. It gained its must-see reputation only after the film was picked up to run on the midnight movie circuit that »

Yes No Maybe So: Serena

14 September 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to walk us through the recently released trailer for a film many of us had surely written off, Susanne Bier’s Serena. The 2012 film will finally see the light of day when it premiere next month at the London Film Festival. It kept making me think of other films and other issues; never a good sign. But we'll start positive. 

Yes

- This moment, mostly because it reminded me of the tenacity of Lawrence’s most accomplished roles (Katniss and Ree).

- Lawrence’s hair, makeup and costumes. 1930s country glamor? Yes, please.

- Cooper’s pecs, soon to be seen on Broadway this season in The Elephant Man.

- To sum up: Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence. Whatever qualms one may have with the one-two punch of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, one cannot deny the fact that Cooper and Lawrence have great chemistry. I’d ask »

Paddy Considine: 'I didn't do The Suspicions of Mr Whicher justice'

5 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Paddy Considine feels that he could improve his performance in The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.

The actor and director first starred as the titular character in 2011's 'The Murder at Road Hill House', before returning last year in 'The Murder in Angel Lane'.

Ahead of the series' third instalment, Considine told Digital Spy and other members of the press that he didn't do the character "justice" in the first film.

He said: "I've never really done a recurring character before. It's been quite interesting for me, because I felt that when the second film came about, it was a really good opportunity to play him how I originally intended.

"It was like I was being given another chance to do the job right, because in the first film, I always felt like I never did it justice. It was such a wonderful book [by Kate Summerscale], and I just don't feel like I did it justice. »

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »

'Tarzan' Synopsis Released as Shooting Begins

16 July 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, we reported that Warner Bros. is expanding their Leavesden Studios in the U.K. as Tarzan was about to start production, although that announcement did not reveal any plot details for this live-action adventure. Warner Bros. has confirmed that principal photography is under way in a press release, which includes the first official plot synopsis. Take a look at the story details below, then read on for more information.

"It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsg&#229rd) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom »

David Yates' Tarzan Movie Begins Principal Photography

14 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

David Yates, who helmed the last few Harry Potter films (and dominated with them), has officially begun production on his next flick, a retelling of Tarzan for Warner Bros.  The studios announced today that cameras were rolling along with some new details on the story this film will have!  

While my interest in another Tarzan film is almost non-existent, I am keenly interested in seeing what David Yates does next.  We haven't seen him do much since Harry Potter ended, and I'm hoping Tarzan will be another amazing film from him.  From the press release:

How Andy Serkis Became the King of Post-Human Acting

14 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On a London stage in 1992, a young Andy Serkis thought he was reaching the limits of actorly transformation. Playing Dogboy, "a bizarre, potentially quite violent street kid who thinks he's a dog," he'd strip naked each night, barking and biting, "much to my parents' shame."

But that was just the beginning for Serkis, 50, who had planned to spend his career acting in Ken Loach-style social-realist dramas. Instead, he's become a maestro of monsters. Through motion-capture technology, »

Role Playing: A conversation with actor Branko Tomovic

1 July 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Branko Tomovic about what attracted him to acting, Blue Velvet, Fury and portraying a historical figure he idolises…

“My parents came as immigrants to Germany from Serbia, so working meant having a job that pays the bills,” remarks Branko Tomovic who has appeared in The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), Inbetween (2008) and Believe the Magic (2012).   “I have been interested in art and films ever since I was a child but doing anything artistic as a job wasn’t really heard of. I can’t really blame them as every parent wants a secure life for their child.  It wasn’t that my parents were not supportive but more that they didn’t know any differently.  I have always been the black sheep in the family with everything that I did, so it was cool with me and have always done with my life what I thought was right.”  Tomovic attended an acclaimed acting school. »

John Hurt on Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer in New York: "He is quite different but technically, he is as clever as Hitchcock." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

At the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York, John Hurt and I met up to discuss his pivotal role in Bong Joon-ho's not so merry-go-round science fiction thriller Snowpiercer. Hurt stars with Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer and Ah-sung Ko as the last inhabitants on an iced-over Earth. We also spoke about his work with John Huston, Fred Zinnemann and Richard Fleischer, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, the triad with Lars von Trier - Dogville - Manderlay - Melancholia, and David Lynch's The Elephant Man. The genius of Brecht combined with Michael Colgan's Gate Theatre may turn into a new adventure for the consummate actor.

Blu-ray, DVD Release: The Innocents (1961)

23 June 2014 5:43 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Sept. 23, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray $39.95

Studio: Criterion

Deborah Kerr gets haunted in The Innocents.

The genuinely frightening, exquisitely made 1961 supernatural Gothic horror film The Innocents stars Deborah Kerr (Black Narcissus) as an emotionally fragile governess who comes to suspect that there is something very, very wrong with her precocious new charges.

A psycho-sexually intensified adaptation of Henry James’s classic The Turn of the Screw, co-written by Truman Capote (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and directed by Jack Clayton (Room at the Top), The Innocents is a triumph of narrative economy and technical expressiveness, from its chilling sound design to the stygian depths of its widescreen cinematography by Freddie Francis (The Elephant Man).

Criterion’s Blu-ray and two-disc DVD editions contain the following features:

• New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray

• Audio commentary featuring cultural historian Christopher Frayling

• New interview with cinematographer John Bailey »
