Why George Miller Should Win DGA Award and Directing Oscar for 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

4 February 2016 1:58 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When it comes to the Academy Awards, voters tend to think highbrow. They like to represent the best, most humane, classiest version of themselves. But don't forget the Steak Eaters. The Academy is full of them—they're red-blooded males (not just American), often directors, writers and craftspeople. They're the guys who voted for "Argo," "The Silence of the Lambs," "Braveheart," "Gladiator," "Avatar," and yes, "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain." "They vote for big movies that make big money, good solid moviemaking with great actors and good storytelling," one veteran Oscar campaigner told me. Last year this faction of the Academy voted for such mainstream hits as Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper." And this year the Steak Eaters —and many women Oscar voters as well—came through for "Mad Max: Fury Road" with 10 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, as they »

"To enter the mind of a killer she must challenge the mind of a madman."

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

Oh...um... If this door should fall down or, ha ha, anything else, this is the number for our Baltimore field office. 

I love Clarice Starling's little 'I mean... what could happen?' nervous chuckle just before she slides under that fateful "Your Self Storage" facility door, don't you?

Remember when we tag-teamed Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca? We're doing the same for Jonathan Demme's thriller classic Silence of the Lambs (1991) for its 25th anniversary next week. Be here Monday through Friday at 12:30 Pm Est next week for each continuing chapter of the retrospective!

For maximum pleasure, if we may use such a word for this macabre event, rewatch 1991's Best Picture with us and join the conversation! »

Wrap-Ranker Poll: All-Time Best Actors Who Have Won an Oscar

3 February 2016 12:47 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tom Hanks is one of two actors, including Spencer Tracy, to win consecutive Best Actor Oscars (“Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump”). He is certainly one of the best actors of his generation, but is he the best? Anthony Hopkins terrified the world with his sinister Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” nabbing the Best Actor trophy despite only spending 12 minutes on screen. He will live on in film history as one of the best villains of all time, but does he top all actors? Sidney Poitier became the first African-American to win Best Actor for “Lilies of the Field. »

Jonathan Demme’s Solution to the Oscars’ Lack of Diversity Is to Add More Nominees This Year

23 January 2016 10:09 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the midst of proposed boycotts and changes from the Academy, Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme has a new plan for fixing this year's very white slate of Oscar nominees — no, it doesn't involve putting the lotion on your skin, though that's always a good idea. In a guest column for Deadline, the Oscar winner argued that the Academy should simply add more room on the roster:Wouldn’t it be so wise, and so very correct, to not wait for next year to address this enormous challenge/problem? Instead, let’s recalibrate this years votes, expanding the entries in all categories, and in this way make it possible for us all to actually watch what is presently — unwatchably — so mortifyingly the “best white whatever” in all categories of the 2016 oscar ceremony? Demme also lamented the lack of attention paid to smaller films that don't feature white protagonists, taking »

Jonathan Demme’s Diversity Challenge To Academy: Recalibrate Current Nominations – Guest Column

23 January 2016 8:50 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

After generating a long string of diverse and disruptive narrative and documentary features including the Oscar winning The Silence of the Lambs, Jonathan Demme is vexed by the lack of diversity in the past two Oscars. In a guest column for Deadline, Demme suggests reforms that go beyond those being hastily implemented by the Academy. I love my Oscar, such an incalculable game-changer in the life of any recipient. I don't think anyone makes a film in order to win a… »

A Look at the 2015 Best Picture Nominees

15 January 2016 9:27 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The 2015 Oscar nominations have been announced with The Revenant leading the way with 12 nominations followed by Mad Max: Fury Road with ten. After crunching some numbers we've taken a look at how this year's crop of Best Picture nominees stacks up to prior, pre-nomination box office totals. Have a look at what we found after comparing this year's eight Best Picture nominees to 190 previous Best Picture contenders, going back 33 years to 1982. Note: Before reading on, please be aware this article is specifically comparing pre-nomination grosses (not adjusted for inflation) unless otherwise noted. To begin, Room is the sixth lowest grossing Best Picture nominee (pre-nominations) in the last 33 years with $5.1 million. The five lower grossing films are American Sniper ($3.3M), Letters from Iwo Jima ($2.5M), My Left Foot ($2.1M), The Dresser ($562k) and Amour ($371k). In fact, Room will likely end up as one of the top ten lowest grossing Best »

Growing Up Golden: How Saoirse Ronan Broke the Child Star Jinx with Her Second Oscar Nomination

14 January 2016 7:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Saoirse Ronan is going where few former child starlets have gone before her: back to the Oscars for first time since she was 13. The Irish actress was nominated for Best Actress for her performance in the period drama Brooklyn on Thursday, and she's considered by many critics to be a serious contender in a category that includes the likes of Brie Larson and Cate Blanchett. And while Ronan is only 21, this isn't her first trip to the rodeo. The actress shot to stardom back in 2007 for her turn as Briony Tallis in the film adaptation of Ian McEwan's 2001 novel Atonement. »

Bad News, No One Wants To Buy The Silence Of The Lambs House

13 January 2016 11:51 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You.d think with the real estate market as it is, every home in the nation would be getting snapped up right quick. It turns out that.s not the case as one house in Fayette County, Pennsylvania just can.t seem to get any takers. While there are a number of reasons that a house might not sell, this one has a fairly interesting one to add to this list. Serial killer Buffalo Bill murdered a bunch of people there. Or at least he did in the movie The Silence of the Lambs. The house that was used as Buffalo Bill.s lair has been on the market since last summer but has yet to see any interest. Scott and Barbara Lloyd, who have owned the house since 1976, have even gone so far as to drop the asking price from $300,000 down to $250,000 last month, but thus far it hasn »

Serial killer's home from Silence of the Lambs fails to find buyer

13 January 2016 2:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The three-story house, which doubled as the sinister lair of serial killer ‘Buffalo Bill’, has been reduced by $50,000 after struggling to secure interest

Owners of a Pennsylvania property that doubled as the “murder dungeon” home of serial killer Buffalo Bill in the Oscar-winning thriller The Silence of the Lambs have reduced the house’s selling price after failing to attract interest from buyers.

Scott and Barbara Lloyd put the three-story 19th-century house up for sale in the summer for $300,000, but dropped the asking price to $250,000 last month. The property is the second most-viewed on the website realtor.com, but estate agents have fielded far more interest from journalists than potential buyers.

George Clooney gets held hostage in first Money Monster trailer

12 January 2016 4:50 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

George Clooney and his Ocean’s 11 paramour, Julia Roberts, reunite this May for a political thriller from director Jodie Foster – yes, Clarice Starling herself.

Dominic West (“The Wire”) and Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad”) bring the grit of their respective crime dramas to Foster’s Money Monster, where Lee Gates (Clooney) is taken hostage by a viewer (Jack O’Connell) after the financial expert broadcasted a bad tip on TV. 

While I’m sure there won’t be any dramatic reenactments of The Silence of the Lambs’ “It puts the lotion in the basket” captive situation, we’re sure to expect smart thrills more in line with another Jodie Foster movie, Inside Man. Or Panic Room. Apparently movies with captives is Jodie’s “thang.”

Watch the trailer for Money Monster, starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts, now and, while you’re at it, why don’t we all just watch The Silence of the Lambs »

Buffalo Bill's 'Silence of the Lambs' house is for sale but nobody wants it

12 January 2016 3:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Attention prospective home buyers: the quaint Layton, Pennsylvania home where Jame Gumb (a.k.a. Buffalo Bill) imprisoned, murdered and then skinned his victims in The Silence of the Lambs is on the market! That's right: for the bargain price of $249,000 you can now own this prime piece of real estate, which boasts four bedrooms, one bathroom (uhhh) and even a delightful gazebo in the backyard. So why doesn't anyone want this? "When it first went on the market, I got calls from across the country," real estate agent Dianne Wilk told NBC News. "But how many people are going to relocate to Layton because of a home?" Photo Credit: AP Photo/Keith Srakocic One thing worth noting is that the basement lair where Gumb kept his victims in a well was filmed on a soundstage, but the scene in the kitchen with the moth? Totally shot there. Continued Wilk: "The thing is, »

Hugh Dancy On "Hannibal" Continuation Ideas

10 January 2016 8:20 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Pushing his role as a dangerous cult leader in Hulu's upcoming series "The Path," actor Hugh Dancy spoke about the end of NBC's "Hannibal" this weekend during his appearance at a Television Critics Association panel.

Discussing the hypothetical fourth season which showrunner Bryan Fuller has previously teased and hopes to still make some day, Dancy clarified with Collider some of the possibilities of where the story might go:

"Bryan had described to me in a kind of overview what he wanted to do with the fourth season had there been one, and it was fantastic. It was really a complete restart in a way, without describing it, because who knows? God knows, maybe some day we'll get to do it in the future.

I would love that but it took us back to the first season in a very unexpected way, but made total sense of that cliffhanger ending. It seemed justified. »

Hugh Dancy Says Hannibal Season 4 May Still Happen

9 January 2016 4:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s still hard to believe that Bryan Fuller’s brilliant Hannibal was cancelled after only just three seasons. It was by far one of the best things on television and ever since it got the axe, fans have remained hopeful that somehow, someway, it would get revived.

While today doesn’t exactly bring confirmation of that ever happening, we do have some encouraging words from series star Hugh Dancy, who spoke a bit about what the future holds for Hannibal while doing a panel at the Television Critics Association this weekend.

“First of all, we didn’t have the rights to Silence of the Lambs,” Dancy said. “Bryan had described to me in a kind of overview what he wanted to do with the fourth season had there been one, and it was fantastic. It was really a complete restart in a way, without describing it, because who knows? »
