Winona Ryder on L'Oréal Ads: I First Used L'Oréal's Blue-Black At-Home Hair Color When I Was 12
You may have caught Winona Ryder’s new ad for L’Oréal Paris’s Elvive collection during the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night. Her cinematic spot for “The Comeback” campaign, which introduces a line of products designed for women with damaged hair, garnered a ton of buzz. Ryder doesn’t often lend her face to campaigns like this (she was previously the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty) but the Stranger Things star says her long relationship with L’Oréal made the partnership a no-brainer.

12 times Danny Elfman defined the sound of the comic book movie

Sean Wilson Jan 5, 2018

Batman, Hulk, Spider-Man and more - we salute the comic book movie scores of Danny Elfman...

Upon its release last year much was made of DC's latest ensemble opus Justice League. The fact that it pairs Ben Affleck's Batman with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) for the first time, that it's helmed by Joss Whedon, a late replacement for Zack Snyder, and that it continues to generate an enormous amount of controversy over its extensively reported production woes. The end result is a movie that falls in the tonal cracks between humorous irreverence and the gloomy, overbearing DC Extended Universe wrongs that plagued the likes of Batman Vs Superman.

Then we come to the score by genre veteran Danny Elfman. No stranger to a comic book movie as we're about to discover, the lauded composer interweaves both his

Paul Scheer Dissects ‘The Last Jedi,’ The Year in Pop Culture, and How ‘The Disaster Artist’ Got Made —Turn It On Podcast
For artists and creative types, despite all the year’s dark elements, there was reason for hope in 2017. Comedian Paul Scheer noted that although it was a tough year for many different reasons, there was plenty of amazing work to celebrate coming out of entertainment. He believes this historical moment will, at the very least, “breed good art.”

“Would I have preferred none of this to happen? Sure. But we’re in it, we’re dealing with it, and I feel there’s a passion coming out,” said Scheer, who noted that he is checking into this from the perspective of a straight, white male in this world. “This year, more than most, I’ve been so creatively excited by what I’ve seen — whether it’s Taika doing ‘Thor’ or the March on Washington.”

The Best of the 8’s – From 1968 to 2008

As 2018 begins and we enter year 8 of this decade, Tom Jolliffe takes a look back at his favourite films from the previous five year 8’s…

Beginning with…

2008 – Let The Right One In

In a strong year, which included The Dark Knight and Slumdog Millionaire, I’ve opted for a genre redefining vampire film from Sweden. Not only is this my favourite of that particular year, but it’s one of the best of this century.

Anchored by two exceptional performances by the young leads, Kare Hedebrant and Lina Leandersson, this beautifully shot, haunting, thoughtful and poignant look at troubled youth (under the guise of a vampire cover which never dives carelessly into the recognisable tropes, but respects them) was one of the most surprising films of recent times. Every nuance of character from its considered human story is matched by the powerful impact of the ‘horror’ elements. From combusting vampires,

10 Things You Never Knew About The Nightmare Before Christmas

10 Things You Never Knew About The Nightmare Before Christmas
For many of us, The Nightmare Before Christmas has become as much of a holiday tradition as the stop motion animation classics that inspired it. Jack, Sally, Zero, and the rest of Halloween Town have enchanted our imaginations (and filled our collectibles shelves) ever since the movie arrived in theaters in October 1993. Here, we look at 10 things you never knew about The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The Nightmare Before Christmas began as a poem.

Clement Clark Moore's 1823 poem A Visit from St. Nicholas is more commonly referred to as The Night Before Christmas, thanks to its opening line, "'Twas the night before Christmas." Tim Burton, who grew up in Southern California, has said he was inspired by the collision of holiday decorations in stores as the seasonal sections switched from Halloween to Christmas. As he toiled away as an animator at Disney, he started to work on his own projects,

10 Things About Heath Ledger's Joker You Never Knew

10 Things About Heath Ledger's Joker You Never Knew
The Dark Knight is widely considered one of the greatest comic book movies ever and regularly ranks toward the top in fan polls about the greatest movies, period. Part of the reverence for the film revolves around the legendary performance of Heath Ledger, who passed away before the release of the film that earned him an Oscar. It's well known that Ledger's commitment to the iconic role was complete down to the way he famously kept a Joker diary while developing the character in isolation. Today, we look through the history of his performance, and investigate ten things that most fans don't know about his role in the movie.

Heath Ledger was the only actor offered the role.

The arrival of Gotham's Clown Prince of Crime was teased at the end of Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan's well-received reboot of the Caped Crusader. Several actors pursued the role. Adrien Brody

Winona Ryder Says She Was Beat Up in Middle School for Wearing Boys' Clothes: 'I Had to Have Stitches'
Don't mess with Winona Ryder.

The 46-year-old actress' career couldn't be hotter with the rising popularity of Stranger Things, but in a recently resurfaced story from her biography, Ryder describes a time when life wasn't as glamorous. In fact, the Golden Globe winner says she was bullied so bad in middle school that she once had to get stitches.

As Ryder explains, she wore a boy-ish haircut and dressed in boy's clothes in her pre-teen years, which caused traumatic harassment for her on the third day of seventh grade at Kenilworth Junior High in Petaluma, California.

Beetlejuice sits mightily alongside the rest of peak Tim Burton. Feel like your whole life is a dark room? One, big, dark, room? It's time to call the Ghost with the Most. Sure, he'll probably wreck everything, in this life and in the afterlife, but it'll be a blast. If he gets too bothersome, just call on a sandworm or two. Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!

10 Great Directors Who Should Make Horror Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey

10 Great Directors Who Should Make Horror Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What filmmaker would you most like to see try their hand at a horror movie?

Kristy Puchko (@KristyPuchko), Pajiba/Riot Material

I struggled with this question, because a lot of the directors I have adored have worked in horror, be it Tim Burton (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Robert Zemeckis (“Death Becomes Her”), Edgar Wright (“Shawn of the Dead”), Frank Oz (“Little Shop of Horror”), Guillermo del Toro (“Crimson Peak”), Bong-Joon Ho (“The Host”), Jim Jarmusch (“Only Lovers Left Alive”), or Taika Waititi (“What We Do In the Shadows”). Part of what I love about the genre is the way is can be reshaped with vision, color,
