Joseph Fiennes Reflects On Losing A Main Star Wars Role

25 May 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that every successful actor has a near-miss story when it comes to auditions, and they can often provide an amusing glimpse into not only what might have been, but also the decision-making processes used to cast important roles. Infamous examples include the time that George Clooney tried for the role of J.D in Thelma And Louise – which ultimately went to Brad Pitt – and Joe Manganiello reaching the final stage of casting for the role of Superman in Man Of Steel. The most recent revelation in this arena comes from Joseph Fiennes, and it concerns Star Wars.

Speaking to The Wrap about his new television show The Handmaid’s Tale, Fiennes explained what happened when he tried to become a Jedi.

“I auditioned for a great director. It was whittled down after many auditions to myself and another fine actor who I was at that time at drama school with. »

We Need To Talk About Ridley: The essential problem with the new Alien movie

18 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Is it best when Ridley Scott is tethered to a well-constructed source? On the basis of his new Alien movie, Sean Wilson thinks this could well be the case…

There’s a lot to admire about Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s gore-strewn return to the sci-fi horror franchise he kickstarted back in 1979. As a piece of visual, physical spectacle it’s extraordinary: visually elegant and sleek, never going in for cheap shocks but fully engaging us in an otherworldly atmosphere. It’s what we’ve come to expect from the world-builder responsible for the original Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator and countless other handsome spectacles. As a piece of storytelling however, it’s an altogether different proposition, more on which momentarily.

Sadly it appears that Scott, who it goes without saying is one of cinema’s truly great visionaries, has past form in this area. In particular, the quality of Scott »

Ridley Scott: ‘Alien: Covenant’ Is a ‘Thinking Man’s Scary Movie’

17 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ridley Scott has one goal with his new movie, “Alien: Covenant.”

“I’m hoping to scare the s–t out of you,” says the legendary director. “If I don’t, I’m in trouble.”

If the past 40 years are any indication, the odds are in Scott’s favor. Since entering the movie game later in life — he was 40 when his debut feature “The Duellists” came out in 1977 — Scott has been taking audiences on wild rides with such films as “Alien,” its prequel “Prometheus” and, most recently, with the Academy Award-nominated blockbuster “The Martian.” Along the way, he’s racked up four Oscar nominations, won two Emmy Awards and landed a permanent place in the film zeitgeist with groundbreaking movies including  “Blade Runner,” “Thelma and Louise” and “Gladiator.”

This week, Scott will earn another honor when his hands and feet are encased in cement outside the Chinese Theatre on May 17. Though »

Cannes 2017: Women in Motion to Honor Isabelle Huppert and Maysaloun Hamoud

16 May 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Isabelle Huppert is the face of Women in Motion 2017: Kering

The face of this year’s Women in Motion program is also the winner of its top prize. In partnership with Cannes, Kering will present the 2017 Women in Motion Award to Isabelle Huppert. The news comes after the “Elle” actress was named the official face of the third annual Women in Motion program.

Isabelle Huppert has taken many artistic risks in her career, and whilst acting with leading names, she has successfully established her own style in a variety of registers ranging from drama to comedy. She has pushed back boundaries with the strong and far-from-stereotypical roles that she has played since the early days of her career,” a press announcement details.

As part of the honor, Huppert had the opportunity to select the recipient of the annual Young Talents Award. She named writer-director Maysaloun Hamoud, who will receive €50,000 (about $54,800 Usd) to help finance future projects. Hamoud made her feature directorial debut with “In Between” (“Bar Bahar”), a drama centering on three Palestinian women living in Tel Aviv.

“The free-spirited and joyful women that [Hamoud] portrays, torn between their desire for emancipation and the traditions that sometimes stifle them, are true heroines of our time,” Huppert emphasized in a statement.

Last year, the Women in Motion Award was presented to Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon. The “Thelma and Louise” stars chose Leyla Bouzid (“As I Open My Eyes”), Gaya Jiji (“Matin, midi, soir… et matin), and Ida Panahandeh (“Nahid”) for the Young Talents prize. The inaugural event saw Jane Fonda receiving the Women in Motion Award and selecting producer Megan Ellison (“Zero Dark Thirty”) as the Young Talents recipient.

Kering has also announced plans to team up with UniFrance in an effort to expand Women in Motion. According to Variety, the partnership “marks a key step forward” for the program. It will now have a stronger global presence and will be part of film events year-round. The alliance between Kering and UniFrance officially begins during the Cannes Film Festival. UniFrance managing director Isabelle Giordano is set to host a Women in Motion panel at the fest. After that, Women in Motion will be featured at UniFrance’s French Film Festival in Japan, which runs June 22–25 in Tokyo.

Cannes Film Festival will be held May 17–28. Check out our by-the-numbers fest breakdown here.

Cannes 2017: Women in Motion to Honor Isabelle Huppert and Maysaloun Hamoud was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Isabelle Huppert Honored With Cannes Women in Motion Award

15 May 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Isabelle Huppert, Oscar-nommed this year for “Elle,” will be honored with the Women in Motion Award by Kering and the Cannes Film Festival. Huppert also won a Golden Globe for the Paul Verhoeven film.

Huppert has in turn chosen Palestinian director Maysaloun Hamoud for the Young Talents award, which comes with a $55,000 grant. Hamoud’s film “In Between” tells the story of three young Palestinian women living in Tel Aviv.

“Things evolve slowly, and never enough. Since women continue to be confronted each day with countless obstacles, I am delighted and moved to be able to shine a spotlight on the talent of one of today’s most promising female directors, Maysaloun Hamoud, through the 2017 Women in Motion Young Talents Award. The free-spirited and joyful women that she portrays, torn between their desire for emancipation and the traditions that sometimes stifle them, are true heroines of our time,” Huppert said in a statement. »

Geena Davis Reveals How Television Is Helping Fight Hollywood’s Sexism Problem

28 April 2017 12:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As Geena Davis’ Bentonville Film Festival readies for its third edition, the fledgling Arkansas event is already pivoting to embrace other entertainment mediums beyond just films, all the better to serve their mission of bolstering diversity in the industry.

“Our tagline has evolved to be ‘championing women and diverse voices in media,’ because the lack of female characters and diverse characters exists in pretty much any form of the media,” said Davis, who co-founded the festival with Trevor Drinkwater, in an interview. During its first two years, Bentonville aimed to champion those voices specifically in film, but 2017 will turn the focus of the festival on other entertainment options, including an episodic section and a shorts competition

F. Gary Gray's Furious Tendencies

28 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

A Man ApartIn October 2016, Vin Diesel revealed that the director of The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment in the multi-billion dollar series of films, would be none other than F. Gary Gray. To those familiar with his work, it seemed like a natural fit. Gray has worked in Hollywood for over twenty years and is one of the most financially successful black directors in history. Coming off of the massive success of Straight Outta Compton (his second film to gross over $100 million dollars at the domestic box office, after 2003’s The Italian Job), Gray seemed like the ideal choice for the latest Fast and Furious installment, where he could return to his cinematic trademarks: guns, heists, fast cars and racially diverse ensembles.  These elements were staples of Gray’s work even before his first feature in 1995. Gray, a South Central Los Angeles native, began as a cameraman for Bet and Fox, »

Exclusive: 'Survivor's Debbie Wanner on Overconfidence and That Amazing Hug With Cochran: 'He's a Great Guy'

27 April 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Debbie Wanner may not have won Survivor, but she went out like a champ.

The 51-year-old Pennsylvania native was blindsided on Wednesday's episode of Survivor: Game Changers, but instead of going off one of the Debbie rants we've all come to know and love, she delivered a cool, calm and collected "Good luck to you all!" as she watched her torch get snuffed.

The smiling, even-tempered Wanner is a departure from the scrappy, confident player fans watched this season -- and who even declared, "We have complete control of this game. There is not a line drawn in the sand. There is a land drawn in concrete," before being voted out. But as Wanner explained to Et over the phone on Thursday, once she saw her name written down at tribal, she prepared »

From Angelina Jolie to Daisy Ridley, Here’s the Top 14 Female Action Stars Working Today

4 April 2017 4:12 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Way back in 1979, Ridley Scott’s “Alien” brought us our first genuine female action hero in Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Despite the three sequels that followed, Ripley proved to be something of an outlier. Until fairly recently, a woman could kill someone in a movie only if she faced brutal punishment afterward, as in Scott’s “Thelma and Louise,” or in the inevitable fates of Bond girls: They could dole out lethal action, but rarely survived.

Today, ass-kicking women are no longer an anomaly or subject to automatic retribution. This weekend, we watched Scarlett Johansson lay waste to her enemies (although not the box office) in “Ghost in the Shell,” following a path blazed by the likes of Linda Hamilton (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Uma Thurman (“Kill Bill”), and Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). These roles may strike a blow for equality and diversity, but what these women — and »

'Law & Order: Svu' Sets Cast for Roger Ailes-Inspired Episode

3 April 2017 4:04 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Just as Fox News finds itself in the midst of another round of sexual harassment controversy, Law & Order: Svu is firming up its own take on the cable news network.

Christopher McDonald (Thelma and Louise), Bonnie Somerville (Friends) and Mark Moses (Mad Men) are set to headline an April episode of the NBC procedural seemingly inspired by the Roger Ailes scandal that led to the longtime chief's departure.

The episode, titled "The Newsroom," is described as follows: "Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Barba (Raúl Esparza) ask witnesses to put their jobs on the line after a news anchor (Somerville) makes an on-air disclosure of »

Natalie Portman to Lead ‘Bronco Belle,’ from ‘The Fits ‘ Director Anna Rose Holmer

28 March 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We recently saw a new James Blake music video starring (a very pregnant) Natalie Portman and directed by The Fits helmer Anna Rose Holmer. A striking, but all too brief collaboration, we expressed hope that the two would re-team for a feature film, and just a week later, plans are already underway for a new project that Holmer would direct.

According to Deadline, the Black Swan Oscar winner is attached to star in Bronco Belle, which would find her playing Raylene Jackson, a burgeoning bull rider described as a “vulnerable and determined American woman with a chip on her shoulder.” Back when Emily Blunt was attached, writer Khurram Longi described the formation of the project to Screen Daily:

“We were driving down from New York and ended up in Texas where by chance we stumbled across the world of rodeo. I had never been to one before. We started to »

'Feud': Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange on Reclaiming Bette and Joan

3 March 2017 12:46 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In 1962, two-time Oscar winner Bette Davis was appearing on Broadway in Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana. Though she'd hoped 1950's All About Eve would reignite her career, she hadn't been offered many great film roles since, and instead was largely relegated to television guest appearances and the theater. But one night after a performance, Joan Crawford – another Oscar-winning former leading lady considered past her prime – visited backstage to offer Davis a revolutionary part in a brand-new picture. Crawford had been in Hollywood since her teens, but now well into her fifties, »

Homeland Season 6 Episode 6 Review: The Return

27 February 2017 2:42 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

What happens when a spy thriller turns conspiracy-slash-mystery thriller?

You get a veteran show – one that critics have been trying to write off for years – producing some of its best episodes ever. Yes, ever.

Homeland Season 6 Episode 6 offered some Hitchcock-worthy scenes, as Carrie played cat-and-mouse with the mysterious watcher Quinn’s been ranting about all season.

Hats off to director Alex Graves for heightening the suspense through labyrinthine camera shots – as when Carrie is running through Conlin’s maze-like home trying to escape his killer – and to composer Sean Callery for the accompanying eerie score.

All Roads Lead to… No Freaking Clue

Last week in my review of Homeland Season 6 Episode 5 I drew up a list of possible suspects in the unfolding whodunit.

This week’s episode gave us some new ones to throw in the mix.

Of course, no conspiracy is the work of a single entity. Homeland Season »
