Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Regina King, Abigail Spencer Seek SAG-aftra Board Seats

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SAG-aftra’s upcoming national board election has drawn a quartet of new high-profile candidates — Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Matthew Modine, Abigail Spencer and Regina King.

With ballots going out July 25, the names were revealed as the self-styled progressives of Membership First and the ruling Unite For Strength Factions have unveiled their candidate slates representing the Los Angeles branch, which has the largest representation and the most competitive races. The winners will be announced on Aug. 24.

Most of the attention is on the presidential race with current president Gabrielle Carteris heading the Unite For Strength ticket, facing a challenge from Membership First’s Esai Morales along with independents Peter Antico and Robert B. Martin, Jr. SAG-aftra’s 80-member national board is the key ruling body for the union.

Taylor Thomas is best known for voicing the young Simba in “The Lion King” and starring in “Home Improvement,” where he was a cast-mate of current national board member Patricia Richardson.

The Full Metal Jacket Deleted Scene Matthew Modine Really Wishes Made It Into The Movie

18 July 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Full Metal Jacket is still as popular today as it was when it was released 30 years ago, possibly more. It's a movie that seemingly has everything, although one actor wishes that it still had one thing that was taken out. »

We talk Full Metal Jacket for its 30th anniversary with D'Onofrio & Modine!

10 July 2017 8:27 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Very few movies have the undeniable impact that the Stanley Kubrick masterwork Full Metal Jacket has. Even on the classics 30th anniversary, the haunting power of this tale of war and the loss of innocence still resonates. Watching this incredible feature again, it’s hard not to stand in awe of such amazing performances from Vincent D’Onofrio and R. Lee Ermey. The two helped... Read More »

Posterized July 2017: ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘A Ghost Story,’ ‘Atomic Blonde,’ and More

2 July 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.

For being a summer month, July only having two sequels (yes, An Inconvenient Sequel in limited release on the 28th counts) and one reboot is kind of an astonishing realization.

It’s a tough market for originality out there, but maybe we’re turning a corner. A24 is bringing its niche auteurs to wide release, big studios like Warner Bros. are affording A-listers the room for passion projects, and no matter how misguided The Emoji Movie (July 28) seems, the reality of it not having a number after its »

Matthew Modine Is Selling These Behind the Scenes Photos of Full Metal Jacket

28 June 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Matthew Modine, who is recently known for his role in Stranger Things was a very big movie star in the 80s.  Starring in movies like Vision Quest, Gross Anatomy, and plenty of others solidified has status as Hollywood Elite.  Perhaps his most well known role during that decade was that of Private Joker in the classic film Full Metal Jacket which was directed by Stanley Kubrick.  As it turns out Modine documented the film by taking pictures over its two year-production. Now Modine will be selling those photos.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Purple Heart Foundation, which

The Siege Of Firebase Gloria

Director Brian Trenchard-Smith’s brash melodrama about the Tet Offensive underscores the action with a thoughtful subtext about the futility of war. Starring Wings Hauser and Full Metal Jacket’s foul-mouthed gunnery sergeant R. Lee Ermey, the 1989 film was written by Ermey as well. Gritty and action-packed, the film has acquired quite the cult following among war-movie aficionados. »

Interview: Matthew Modine and Yani Gellman Discuss 47 Meters Down

15 June 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Later tonight, 47 Meters Down swims its way into theaters everywhere, and the action-fueled horror movie has had quite a wild ride so far. It was originally set to be released on home media last summer, only to be picked up by Entertainment Studios and become destined to hit big screens everywhere this weekend.

During a recent press day, Daily Dead had the opportunity to chat with two of the co-stars in 47 Meters Down, Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Stranger Things) and Yani Gellman (Urban Legends: Final Cut, Stoney from Jason X), who play a boat captain and potential suitor to one of the film’s heroines, respectively. The duo discussed what intrigued them about the project, the challenges of making the film, and recalled 47 Meters Down’s unusual journey into theaters.

What was it that initially attracted you to this project? Had you seen any of Johannes [Roberts'] prior films?

Review: 47 Meters Down Makes for a Terrifyingly Fun Summer Movie Experience

15 June 2017 7:49 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Here’s a little-known fact about me: I love snorkeling. The last vacation I took down to Mexico, I spent five out of the seven days we were there floating around the ocean and several cenotes, taking in all the views of aquatic life that I could possibly get. But here’s the thing: once I get into dark water territory (where I no longer can see the bottom), that’s when I start to freak out a bit, and my own claustrophobia begins to set in. That being said, there’s a lot to 47 Meters Down that really left me unnerved, particularly once our protagonists end up stuck at the bottom of the ocean floor, with the still darkness of the ocean encompassing them, and no way to tell whether or not a shark is headed their way.

Not only did it tap into my very own worst fears, »

Olivia Wilde Says Son Otis Is Like a 'Drill Sergeant' to Little Sister Daisy

14 June 2017 9:06 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Olivia Wilde is raising a little drill sergeant!

The 33-year-old actress stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, and spoke about how her 3-year-old son, Otis, is handling having a new baby sister, 8-month old Daisy.

"He's like a drill sergeant. I don't know who let him watch Full Metal Jacket, but he is so hard on her," Wilde joked to Colbert. "He's really putting her through the works, it's boot camp. So she's going to come out of it really ripped and with a great attitude. But he screams!"

When asked if Otis ever says he wants to "send her back," the actress replied, "'You don't live here!' is what he screams at her."

Wilde added that she didn’t have an older brother growing up, but had an older sister and younger brother who she got »

New to Streaming: ‘Zodiac,’ ‘Dressed to Kill,’ ‘A Cure for Wellness,’ and More

2 June 2017 4:25 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

A Cure for Wellness (Gore Verbinski)

The asylum-based film is a fairly interesting mini-genre to deconstruct. These movies almost always deal with perceptions of reality, questions of the self, and an innate fear of those in positions of power who operate in worlds of the ethereal. The question of the protagonist’s madness is almost always central, and the uncertainty over whether their paranoia is unfounded or justified is »

Great Months in Box-Office History: June 1987

1 June 2017 6:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Quick, what do The Untouchables, Predator and Full Metal Jacket have in common? Now, what do Harry and the Hendersons, Spaceballs and The Witches of Eastwick have in common? And Roxanne? Answer: They all hit theaters in June 1987.

Though no real scientific analysis contributed to the genesis of this article, I can say that a perusal of Wikipedia's handy "[Year] in Film" pages yielded perhaps a handful of comparable runs, where every single weekend in a month offered up to the moviegoing public at least one film that would stand the test of time.

'Full Metal Jacket': THR's 1987 Review

1 June 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On June 17, 1987, Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket premiered in Beverly Hills. The anti-war film comprised two acts — the first at the U.S. Marine Corps trailing facility in Parris Island, and the second in Vietnam on the eve of the Tet Offensive. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

Stanley Kubrick has made two great anti-war movies, Paths of Glory and Dr. Strangelove. His latest anti-war effort, Full Metal Jacket, belongs on the other end of the filmmaking spectrum. Unfortunately, the word that Warner Bros. has had trouble inserting into some print ads also applies to this didactic, static harangue. »

‘Filmworker’ Review: Stanley Kubrick’s Right-Hand Man Gets His Due in Tony Zierra’s Workmanlike Documentary

25 May 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Leon Vitali has been described as a jack of all trades, an Igor-like figure, the moth to Stanley Kubrick’s flame, even a slave. He has a different title for himself, however: filmworker. It’s what he puts on visa applications when traveling to other countries and, considering his all-encompassing job description, it only makes sense that he would require a singular title.

It’s also what Tony Zierra named his suitably workmanlike documentary about Vitali, whose heretofore unheralded work behind the scenes is now on full display in the Cannes Classics sidebar. An actor who got his would-be big break in “Barry Lyndon,” Vitali made a unique career choice following the film’s success: He became Kubrick’s right-hand man. Seeing such an elaborate production come together — Vitali had been acting for years, but never on something that matched the grand scale of “Barry Lyndon” — instilled in him a »
