Wolf Pack: The Making of The Wolf of Wall Street

2 April 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with film editor Thelma Schoonmaker, production visual effects supervisor and second unit director Rob Legato, and first assistant director Adam Somner as well as visual effects supervisors Joe Farrell and Marko Forker about travelling around the world with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio without leaving New York City.... 

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed) is based on the memoir of high living stockbroker Jordan Belfort who was sent to prison for stock manipulation.  “It's interesting that Scorsese told his casting director, Ellen Lewis, right from the beginning that the film would be filled with humour,” states Thelma Schoonmaker who has edited every Martin Scorsese movie since winning an Oscar for Raging Bull (1980).  “But most members of the crew were surprised by how funny the scenes were as they watched them being shot.   So Scorsese knew what he was doing right from the beginning, »

The Wolf Of Wall Street Blu-ray Review

31 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Quentin Tarantino recently pointed out that with most directors there’s a notable falling off of quality as they get older.  That their last three films are often their worst.  And it’s true that with most directors that’s the case.  Martin Scorsese is currently 71 years old, and is a notable exception.  The Wolf of Wall Street is one of his best films.  It joins such established masterpieces as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas in the upper echelon of his work, and it’s the best performance that Leonardo DiCaprio has ever given.  My review of The Wolf of Wall Street on Blu-ray follows after the jump. Told from his perspective, Wolf follows Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio) in his rise to power.  After trying to make it with a major brokerage firm, he created Stratton Oakmont due to his ability to sell penny stocks (generally bad bets) to rich clientele. »

Lifetime Achievement Honoree: Joe Mantegna Brings Stage Experience to ‘Criminal Minds’

26 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At the age of 66, actor Joe Mantegna shows no signs of slowing down. So though he is being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce on March 28, he admits to wondering where the time went. “These kinds of things always get your attention,” Mantegna says with a laugh. “When I signed up for Medicare, it was like, ‘Oh my goodness, how did I get here?’ Sometimes those years do pass on by and the next thing you know you blink and I’ve realized I’ve been in this business for 40-plus years.”

In the course of those years, Mantegna has proven one of our most reliable character actors, often specializing in roles on one side of the law. Take his current TV gigs as an example: While he stars as FBI agent David Rossi on the CBS hit “Criminal Minds,” he has also been »

8 movie classics that were box office flops: From Blade Runner to Brazil

15 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long," muses Dr Eldon Tyrell in Blade Runner. This statement doesn't apply to a startling list of classic movies that faded fast at the box office on initial release, but whose flames have been burning with more intensity as the years have passed...

Blade Runner (1983)

Budget: $28 million

Box office: $33.7 million (including re-releases)

While androids dream of electric sheep, accountants must have endured hellish nightmares in the aftermath of Blade Runner's dismal run at the box office in the summer of 1982. An opening weekend of barely $6 million (£3.61 million) was attributed to an ill-conceived advertising campaign, the competition of Et for bums on seats and a mixed reception from viewers who felt stunned by the imagery but alienated by the narrative.

It's hard not to wonder whether the film would have fared better if the studio had faith in director Ridley Scott's original vision, »

Of Course Someone Remixed the Chest Thump in 'Wolf of Wall Street'

11 March 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though The Wolf of Wall Street may not have been a big winner at the 86th Academy Awards earlier this month, the film is still one of the best of 2013 (it was actually my favorite of the year). Martin Scorsese's latest film will hit Blu-Ray and DVD on March 25th, but someone has already had fun with the film in a bit of a weird way. By now we've all seen at least a part of Matthew McConaughey's chest bumping scene (which was turned into an Oscar brag against Leonardo DiCaprio), and someone decided to remix that into a song that wouldn't be out of place in the crazy world of cocaine and quaaludes in the film. Watch and listen! Here's the remix of Matthew McConaughey's chest bump from The Wolf of Wall Street via Gawker: The Wolf of Wall Street is directed by legendary Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, »

Deadline’s Oscars Blog: ‘12 Years A Slave’, ‘Gravity’ And Boredom Reign Supreme

2 March 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Here we are again after the Golden Globes,  Mike Fleming and Anita Busch taking on the task of play by play during the most wide-open Oscar race we can remember. Even on the party circuit, industry insiders who usually have a grasp of who’ll walk away with Oscars were evenly torn between Alfonso Cuaron’s 3D masterpiece Gravity and Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave. Then again, there were so many terrific films that got Best Picture nominations, and all of them have at least a puncher’s chance at an upset. Related: Oscars: Pete Hammond’s Absolute Final Predictions That includes American Hustle, where David O Russell co-wrote the Best Original Script nominee with Eric Warren Singer and got tour de force performances and nominations for Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Perfs so strong there was no room on the nomination roster for perennial Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner. »

Oscar Picks: Variety Critics on Who Should Win Best Actor/Actress

26 February 2014 6:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Best Actress

Justin Chang: Scott, I know it will come as little surprise to you that when Peter Debruge and I sat down to discuss this year’s Oscar nominees for best supporting actor and supporting actress, we spent almost as much time talking about the performances that should have been nominated as we did talking about the ones that actually were. This is hardly a new ax for any critic to grind, but it bears repeating: Those who vote on the Academy Awards are largely in the business of making movies — not seeing them, thinking about them and writing about them week in and week out. No wonder this organization’s choices often strike us as so pedestrian and provincial, less engaged by the boundary-expanding possibilities of cinema than beholden to the power of hometown hype.

Martin Scorsese looks at the changing face of Oscar season over four decades

25 February 2014 7:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For years, the Oscars and Martin Scorsese just didn't seem to jibe. His films didn't resonate with that crowd. Maybe it was because he was an outsider. Maybe it was because he didn't trade in the breed of films that typically found footing with the Academy. Whatever the case, it became, for decades, a consistent note: How does Martin Scorsese not have an Oscar? Things began to change nearly three decades into his career. Until 2002, a Scorsese film registering with the group was not nearly the consistent occurrence it is today. Yet since "Gangs of New York," four of his last five films Have received Best Picture nominations and he finds himself a perennial fixture on the Oscar circuit, a circuit he has seen change drastically over the course of his career. With Oscar voting drawing to a close, I spoke with Scorsese recently about that very phenomenon, how zealous »

Oscar Predictions 2014: Who Will Win Best Actor?

25 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This Sunday, all eyes will be on the star-studded Oscars!

With the special night almost here, Moviefone will be releasing a set of staff predictions each day this week (in countdown fashion) for the six major categories. We kicked it off yesterday with Best Picture, and now turn our attention to another hotly-contested race -- Best Actor.

We've already given you the beat on the Best Actor nominees, so now let's break down our favorites to win the award. Here, we've listed the actors we expect to win, and then, more importantly, who we think should win.

Tim Hayne

Who Will Win: Matthew McConaughey. There's no denying McConaughey's transformative turn as womanizer-turned-aids patient advocate Ron Woodroof was one of the best performances of the year. And the Academy loves it when actors go to extremes for a role: losing weight (Tom Hanks, "Philadelphia"), gaining weight (Robert De Niro, "Raging Bull"), de-beautification (Charlize Theron, »

Bitter Sweet Payne: Phedon Papamichael talks about Nebraska

22 February 2014 1:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Phedon Papamichael about working with Alexander Payne and the cinematography featured in Nebraska...

“I was a young striving cinematographer at the time,” recalls Phedon Papamichael (3:10 to Yuma) who first met filmmaker Alexander Payne (About Schmidt) at UCLA Film School.  “I had a job interview with him for his UCLA graduate film which I did not get.  I ended up shooting a different UCLA graduate film with Alexander being the boom operator.  We knew each other socially and lived in the same part of Los Angeles, the Silver Lake Area.  I’d be aware of what he was doing and he’d be aware of what I was doing.  I was happy when I saw Alexander made his first film Citizen Ruth [1996] and liked it.  We often talked about films.  It wasn’t until Sideways [2004] when he called out of the blue and asked me if »
