For all the ladies out there dissatisfied with the quality of their porn, Susan Sarandon is coming to the rescue. According to The Guardian, Sarandon told The Times that she is interested in directing female-friendly adult films when she retires from acting - although it's difficult to tell how serious she was about the comments.

Geena Davis, Susan Sarandon on How to Reach Gender Balance in Movies and TV

16 May 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon pointed out the continuing lack of gender balance in film and TV — and offered solutions on how to fix the problem.

“‘Hunger Games’ was supposed to change everything. ‘Mamma Mia’ was supposed to change everything,” said Davis at Variety and Kering’s Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Film Festival. “I think we have to stop saying, ‘Now this will change everything,’ until it actually changes. If you can’t measure the change, it hasn’t actually happened.”

Davis, who is also the founder and chair of the non-profit Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, went on to say that the battle to get women adequately represented in other sectors, such as politics and business, is a much longer struggle. “But the next movie someone makes could be gender-balanced,” she said. “The next TV show they make can be half women and very diverse. »

Thirty Years of Top Gun

15 May 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thirty years after its first release, Neil Calloway takes a look at Top Gun

Thirty years ago this week – 16th May 1986, to be precise, Top Gun was released and pop culture was changed forever. With the possible exclusion of films where Spielberg and Lucas were involved, it is arguably the most iconic film of the 1980s, certainly if you only consider films aimed at men.

If nothing else, it turned Tony Scott into a major Hollywood player and put Tom Cruise at the top of the firmament where – couch jumping incidents aside, he has remained ever since. It gave an early role to Meg Ryan three years before When Harry Met Sally, Tim Robbins and Anthony Edwards appear eight years before The Shawshank Redemption and E.R. made them stars. Adrian Pasdar has a tiny role a full twenty years before Heroes. Add Val Kilmer (five years before The Doors), and »

Exclusive Q&A with Night People Writer/Director Gerard Lough

15 April 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Two thieves tell each other eerie stories to pass the time in Gerard Lough’s Night People, a new anthology film hitting VOD on May 9th. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Lough to discuss the making of his directorial feature film debut.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Gerard. When and how did you first come up with the idea for your new film, Night People?

Gerard Lough: Anthology films were very much a fixture of my childhood at Halloween, as they always seemed to be shown on TV at the time and I always liked the idea of getting three stories for the price of one, each of them with the fat trimmed off, that would hit the ground running. Anthology shows were also very much on the go at that time but seemed to die out, so »

Golden Years: David Bowie’s essential movie performances

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie.  Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius.  The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar.  Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.

While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles.  While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.

Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

Movie Poster of the Week: “The Man Who Fell to Earth” and David Bowie in Movie Posters

16 January 2016 12:20 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: UK one sheet for The Man Who Fell to Earth (Nicolas Roeg, UK, 1976). Designed and illustrated by Vic Fair.David Bowie, who left our planet this week, appeared in some 20 movies, but his appearances on movie posters are restricted to just a handful of films. Many of his roles, especially in later years, were cameos or small, but significant, character parts. He memorably played Pontius Pilate in Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), Andy Warhol in Julian Schnabel’s Basquiat (1996), and Nikola Tesla in Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige (2006); he appeared as himself in films as varied as Christiane F. (1981), Zoolander (2001) and Bandslam (2009); and he was endearingly strange as an FBI agent in the opening section of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992).His most important and iconic film role by far is his starring role as the titular alien in Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth »

David Bowie Departs This Plane

11 January 2016 3:51 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Music/fashion/film icon David Bowie succumbed to cancer Sunday at the age of 69, shocking the world. He reinvented himself so many times, it almost seems like this is just one more persona. He was living art, a chameleon who was light-years ahead of his contemporaries. In retrospect, he seemed immortal. Whether he was Ziggy Stardust or Jareth from Labyrinth or the androgynous Man Who Fell To Earth, the Thin White Duke defined innovation, inspiring acts as varied as Kiss and Lady Gaga to take on different images and personalities.

Even with his movie star good looks, he was an eccentric who, though embraced by the mainstream, was always an oddity, so he appealed to outsiders and oddballs. He got us, and we got him. His trailblazing music ranged from adult contemporary to pop to soul to glam rock, giving us classics like “Let’s Dance,” “Fame,” “Golden Years,” “Space Oddity, »

David Bowie: The Fascinating Filmography of a Cracked Actor

11 January 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Bowie’s relationship to cinema and acting was characteristically complex and knotty even before he started: He famously had to change his name from Davy Jones because there was already a British actor with that name making major waves in music as part of the mega-hit TV manufactured band, the Monkees.

For an artist who transformed rock and roll music to great acclaim and financial rewards, David Bowie’s work as an actor never matched the notoriety and success of his recordings and concerts. But Bowie accomplished a feat that eluded Elvis and many other pantheon rockers who attempted to crossover from rock stardom to films and starred in a movie that has endured as a legitimate work of art: Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 sci-fi masterwork, “The Man Who Fell To Earth.” (The other contender for that distinction is Mick Jagger, whose “Performance” is ranked as a masterwork of British »

David Bowie, Legendary Rocker And Actor, Dead At Age 69

11 January 2016 7:45 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Bowie starred in the 1976 cult film The Man Who Fell to Earth.

David Bowie, one of the most iconic rock and rollers of all time, has died after an 18 month battle with cancer. He was 69 years old. Bowie exploded onto the British rock scene in 1969 and quickly became an international sensation. Over the decades he remained relevant by constantly reinventing himself and producing a wide range of music. He even created an alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, who simultaneously built an equally enthusiastic audience. Cinema Retro readers should also recall that Bowie had a successful career as an actor as well. His first appearance on screen was as an extra in the 1969 film "The Virgin Soldiers" but over the decades he won acclaim for his performances that afforded him leading roles and the chance to play memorable supporting characters as well. His film credits include "The Man Who Fell to Earth »

David Bowie’s Best Film Moments

As if Monday wasn’t a hard enough day to get through, today we’ve also had to cope with the tragic passing of David Bowie. He was a true icon and legend of the music industry and had an uncanny chameleon knack for reinvention, managing to transcend all manor of boundaries. Bowie is beloved to the world for the music and magic that he brought into our lives and the way in which he changed the industry.

His songs didn’t only have a massive effect on the world of music, they also impacted on the medium of film. You only have to look at the soundtracks portion of the late musician’s IMDb page to see just how many movies have been enriched by his vocals. That of course wasn’t the end of Bowie’s contribution to the film industry as »

The Man Who Fell To Earth has finally gone home and we look back at David Bowie's beautiful life

11 January 2016 3:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I was not much older than my oldest son is now, either fourth or fifth grade, the older girl next door who spent several years slowly initiating me to both the secret worlds of rock'n'roll and kissing, thus assuring those things would forever be linked in my mind, played me one of the many 45s she kept in a big giant carry-around box with the Rolling Stone lips on the cover. This one, she assured me, was "mind-blowing." She was right. The first time I heard "Space Oddity," it felt like I lifted off the ground with that countdown, infinity in endless mandala opening above me, as that strange voice, so thin at times, so powerful at others, sang with such longing, such powerful desire to both reach back to a humanity left behind and rocket on into whatever cosmic possibilities lay ahead. I must have played that record »
