Trainspotting Screens at The St. Louis Public Library June 25th

23 June 2016 8:59 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“We called him Mother Superior on account of the length of his habit.”

Trainspotting screens at The St. Louis Public Library Central Branch (1301 Olive Street St. Louis) Saturday, June 25th at 1pm. This is a Free event. 

There’s a new film series in town! To celebrate the Summer Reading Program theme, “Worlds of Wonder,” Central Cinema at the St. Louis Library will be screening some of the most unique and fantastical films ever shown on the big screen. The series kicks off this Saturday with Danny Boyle’s  Trainspotting

Probably the most disgusting thing I can imagine doing is swimming through a dirty toilet, in search of a pill I had just put up my own butt. Good thing Trainspotting (1996) took care of showing me that on the silver screen. Despite how disgusting that scene is, Trainspotting is a master piece. Trainspotting balances brilliantly the duality between straight people, »

Women in Film Names ‘Exemplars’ in Their Fields for Pioneering Work

15 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Crystal Award for Excellence in Film Honorees:

Denise Di Novi, Lianne Halfon, Lynda Obst, Jane Rosenthal, Paula Wagner, Lucy Fisher, Lauren Shuler Donner, Paula Weinstein

The eight honorees have blazed a trail for female producers while overcoming hurdles and making some great films. This year, the group includes risk-takers Denise Di Novi, who has produced dozens of films including “Heathers,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Ed Wood,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” and is making her directorial debut with “Unforgettable.” Honoree Lianne Halfon has produced such docs as “Crumb” along with fiction features “Demolition,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and “Juno.”  Lynda Obst’s credits include the iconic “Sleepless in Seattle,” “The Fisher King” and “Interstellar.” Jane Rosenthal, who is also Tribeca Enterprises executive chair, worked on “Wag the Dog,” “Meet the Parents,” and Katie Holmes’ feature debut, “All We Had.” Paula Wagner has been behind some of the biggest blockbusters of the past couple of decades, including the “Mission: Impossible” trilogy, “War of the Worlds,” and has Reginald Hudlin’s “Marshall,” about a young Thurgood Marshall, on tap. Lucy Fisher’s credits include the “Divergent” series and “The Great Gatsby.” Action hits are the driver of Lauren Shuler Donner’s career, including “Deadpool” and the “X-Men” franchise. As exec VP of Tribeca Enterprises, Paula Weinstein helps run the Tribeca film festival; she produced “Blood Diamond” and “The Perfect Storm,” among other films.

The BMW Dorothy Arzner Directors Award

Lesli Linka Glatter

Glatter, whose stellar reputation has been built on such series as “Homeland,” “ER” and “Mad Men,” couldn’t be happier about female directors, showrunners, and executive producers taking the lead. “Even on a bad day, I love my job. I love being a storyteller and getting to work in this incredible ‘team sport’ with so many extraordinary artists,” she says. “I am profoundly grateful to Wif for this amazing honor especially now, where issues regarding women directors are at the forefront of the cultural conversation.”

The Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award

Natalie Dormer

As Queen Margaery Tyrell on “Game of Thrones,” Dormer plays a powerful and clever royal, not far from her Anne Boleyn in Showtime’s “The Tudors.” The actress has a lot on her docket, including more “Thrones” and Stefan Ruzowitzky’s “Patient Zero.”  “I am proud to be part of the movement pushing forward,” she says.

The Sue Mengers Award

Hylda Queally

Named after groundbreaking superagent Sue Mengers, who guided the careers of Barbra StreisandSteve McQueen, and Faye Dunaway, among others, the award has been presented only once before. CAA’s Queally has earned it, representing some of the top talent in the film industry, including Marion Cotillard, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Lupita Nyong’o, Jessica Chastain, Rose Byrne, and Daisy Ridley.

The Lucy Award for Excellence in Television

Taraji P. Henson

Henson has become one of the most recognizable names in TV and film. Her role as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s “Empire” earned the actress a Golden Globe award and an Emmy nom. “I couldn’t be more honored or thrilled to receive an award from women and with the name Lucy attached makes it perfect,” she says. “After playing so many very dramatic roles, I hope this means someone thinks I can be funny.”

Film Review: ‘The Final Master’

3 June 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chen Shi (Liao Fan), the suavely severe hero of “The Final Master,” is an apostle of the Wing Chun style of hand-to-hand combat. The moment you witness the hair-raising brand of Wing Chun he favors, you see why someone could be religiously devoted to this particular school of kickass: It’s cooler than cool. In “The Final Master,” the principal weapon on display is a dragon pole with a pair of butterfly swords attached to each end. It looks like a giant Swiss Army knife, and when Chen and one of his opponents go at each other, whipping those double-edged blade blossoms through the air (whoosh! whoosh! whoosh!), then slamming the daggers against each other (clang! clang!), we seem to have walked into the world’s most primitive yet elaborate street fight. It’s like seeing a lightsaber duel in which each fighter has the limbs of Edward Scissorhands. The »

Johnny Depp’s ‘Pirates 5’ Injury Occurred During Fight With Amber Heard (Report)

31 May 2016 5:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After declaring in court that she has “endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse” during the entirety of their relationship, Amber Heard claims that the injury that estranged husband Johnny Depp incurred that halted filming on “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” occurred during a physical altercation.

According to ET, Depp reportedly injured his right hand while punching a wall during an argument the couple had in Australia in March of 2015.

The injury and resulting surgery cut into filming for more than a month. Depp had to fly back to the U.S. to receive medical treatment and eventually had a pin inserted in one of his fingers.

Disney, the studio behind “Pirates of the Caribbean,” declined to comment on the matter.

Amber Heard Gives LAPD Statement About Johnny Depp’s Alleged Abuse, Attorneys Say

31 May 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amber Heard’s lawyers said Tuesday that the actress has now filed a claim with Los Angeles police to investigate domestic violence allegations against estranged husband Johnny Depp.

Heard’s lawyers said “The Danish Girl” star didn’t initially tell police about the abuse in order to protect Depp’s career, but has since been “forced” by his team to give a police statement.

“Amber did not provide [an initial] statement to the LAPD in an attempt to protect her privacy and Johnny’s career,” Heard’s attorney Samantha F. Spector and her co-counsel Joseph P. Koenig said in a statement. “Johnny’s team has forced Amber to give a statement to the Lapd to set the record straight as to the true facts, as she cannot continue to leave herself open to the vicious false and malicious allegations that have infected the media.”

Johnny Depp: Anatomy of a Fallen Movie Star

29 May 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a 2005 episode of “Entourage” a super-agent played by Malcolm McDowell tells Jeremy Piven’s Ari Gold that his eight-year-old daughter knew that Johnny Depp was going to be a star when she watched “Platoon.”

“You showed her ‘Platoon’ when she was eight years old?” the hyper-caffinated Gold asks incredulously.

The joke may be about bad parenting, but the reality is that Depp was marked for stardom by Hollywood almost from the time he first turned heads in the Vietnam drama. After a brief detour into teen heartthrob-dom with the TV show “21 Jump Street,” Depp began justifying that initial enthusiasm, amassing well received turns in the likes of “Ed Wood” and “Edward Scissorhands.”

The movie industry was so convinced that the actor possessed that rare alchemy of talent and charisma that marks a true star, that it stuck by Depp for over a decade until he found his box office footing. »
