'Between Two Ferns' Holiday Special with Samuel L. Jackson & More

18 December 2013 11:34 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've featured plenty of editions of Zach Galifianakis' ongoing talk show Between Two Ferns, including last year's two-part Oscar specials (here and here), which we hope will return when the Academy Awards roll around in 2014. This time the comedian and star of The Hangover franchise is back with a holiday special, sitting down with Samuel L. Jackson (star of the third Die Hard movie ever) and Tobey Maguire of this year's The Great Gatsby. It's exactly as awkwardly hilarious as you'd expect, and there's even a special guest for some holiday music with the band Arcade Fire showing up at the end. Watch it! Here's Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns Holiday Special from Funny or Die: We'd like to point out how awesome that reference to Emmanuel Lewis, star of "Webster" is, if only because he was used in the Oscar special as a mistake while trying to book Daniel Day-Lewis, »

Venice: Making Locke under the radar

2 September 2013 12:01 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: The team behind Tom Hardy drama Locke talk about how they quickly put the project together and shot in only eight nights.

Eight nights, one star, one car. That’s the formula behind Locke, Steven Knight’s UK drama that has its world premiere in Venice tonight [Sept 2].

Tom Hardy stars as Ivan Locke, an ordinary guy with a loving family and burgeoning career, whose life changes during the course of 85 minutes – the time of one single car journey.

“He’s the most ordinary guy in the world, a construction director working on a huge skyscraper,” says Shoebox Films director Paul Webster. “The film takes place on the eve of the biggest moment of his career. He’s got a home a wife, two kids, a perfect job. By the end of the movie he has none of these things.”

The low-budget drama was shot in real time in an under-the-radar production that reunited Knight with his »

Zach Galifianakis Goes 'Between Two Ferns' with 2013 Oscar Nominees

12 February 2013 1:42 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Either I am in the minority or my comedic sensibilities are so vastly different from that of the general public I can't even see the folks on the other side because I simply don't get what is so funny about Zach Galifianakis' ignorant shlub schtick in these "Between Two Ferns" videos. Clearly others find some fascination in it considering Part 1 in the latest "Oscar Buzz" installments has been viewed more than 1.1 million times since being released 24 hours ago. In the two most recent videos Galifianakis, playing what may as well be his character from either The Hangover or Due Date, "interviews" Oscar hopefuls including Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Lining Playbook), Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), Naomi Watts (The Impossible), Amy Adams (The Master), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Sally Field (Lincoln), Emmanuel Lewis ("Webster") pretending to be Daniel Day-Lewis and Bradley Cooper (Silver Lining Playbook).

Classic W I D E S C R E E N Cinema at Webster University Starts this Weekend

9 January 2013 8:48 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From the silent movie era into the early 1930s, the standard aspect ratio of Hollywood films was 1.33:1, a ratio developed by cinema pioneer Thomas Edison. Early in the “talkie” era, when the soundtrack was added to the side of the film frame, the width of the image was reduced even more, creating a more square-shaped picture. Since the early 1950s, most movies have been filmed in a process where the width of the visual frame is between 1.85 to 2.4 times greater than the height. This means that for every inch of visual height, the frame as projected on the screen is between 1.85 to 2.4 times as wide. This results in a panoramic view that can add a greater breadth and perception of the environment and mood of a movie. The rise in popularity of television is credited with inciting the motion picture’s move to the widescreen systems that flourished throughout the 50s, »
