Friday brings us the release of The Fate of the Furious, the eighth film in The Fast & The Furious series. Thus, there could be no better time to look back and rank the previous works of one of the films most notable craftsmen, a man whose name is legendary. I speak of course of First Assistant Director Frank Capra III.

Capra III is the grandson of director Frank Capra, a Hollywood legend whose work includes It Happened One Night, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and It’s a Wonderful Life. How did that pedigree fare two generations removed? This exhaustive look at Mr. Capra III’s 1st Ad career will tell the tale.

While the film’s director often gets the lion’s share of the credit, the First Ad is one of the most critical positions on set. In »

Watch: It’s More Than Just Red-Faced Yelling, Jack Nicholson Has Mastered the Art of Anger

6 April 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We all love when Leonardo DiCaprio cries, and we all love when Jack Nicholson screams. He yells a lot. He’s angry a lot. Yet, the dynamism to which he approaches anger with each new character he embodies is refreshing and strategized.

Some of his most iconic roles in films such as “A Few Good Men,” “The Shining,” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” and “The Departed” showcase the incredible range and attentive depth Nicholson maintains when he is acting. McMurphy is dramatically different from Colonel Jessup, and yet they both use anger as their source of authority and power.

After the Hollywood Romances, Sex and Dugs — What Happened to the Brat Pack?

30 March 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With a multi-generational reunion of sorts between Brat Pack alum Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy’s son in the works, we’re taking the opportunity to catch up with all of the former ’80s teen phenoms — and their offspring — over 30 years after they first earned their iconic nickname.

During a recent appearance on The Moms, McCarthy revealed that his 15-year-old son, Sam, will appear in an upcoming movie called All These Small Moments alongside the famous red-head.

“She emailed me on the first day and she said, ‘Your son just did a scene and when he walked away, it was »

I’m 100% Behind Aaron Sorkin Screenwriting Superhero Movies

29 March 2017 6:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s hard to picture the man who wrote titles such as “A Few Good Men,” “The American President,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Social Network,” “Moneyball” and “Steve Jobs,” taking his skills to comic book films.  Sorkin also created and wrote most of the episodes of “The West Wing,” “SportsNight,” “Studio 60” and “The Newsroom.”  But now he might be throwing his name into the collective money making machine ring of Marvel and DC.   Recently at CinemaCon Sorkin made mention of his recent plans. “I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel,” Sorkin told ComicBook.com while on

Aaron Sorkin is Taking Meetings With DC and Marvel

29 March 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Can you imagine Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince doing a classic walk and talk through the hallways of Wayne Enterprises? How about Spider-Man and Hawkeye exchanging not just a throwaway line or two, but having an epic back-and-forth conversation full of quotable one-liners? Well, the future is wide open, because Oscar-winning writer Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, A Few Good Men) […]

Aaron Sorkin Has Meetings With Both DC And Marvel

28 March 2017 8:12 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Aaron Sorkin has written some pretty incredible films including A Few Good Men and The Social Network, in addition to being one of the only show-runners to write nearly every episode of his creation, The West Wing. Among his numerous other awards, Sorkin won an Oscar for writing The Social Network, and was nominated for a second for Moneyball. Now his attention may be turning to the most lucrative genre of all... superhero flicks.

ComicBook.com caught Sorkin at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, and he revealed he has meetings with both DC and Marvel to possibly write a film for either of their Cinematic Universes:

“I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel. I have to go into these meetings and tell them as respectfully as I can that I’ve never read a comic book. It’s not that I don’t like them, it »

Oscars 2017: Hacksaw Ridge’s Kevin O’Connell Wins Best Sound Mixing on 21st Nomination

26 February 2017 6:32 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It finally happened for Kevin O’Connell.

At Sunday night’s 89th annual Academy Awards, the veteran sound mixer won Best Sound Mixing for Hacksaw Ridge alongside Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright. The victory is O’Connell’s first after 21 total nominations; until Sunday, O’Connell was the most-nominated person in Oscars history without a victory.

O’Connell dedicated the big win to his mother, Skippy.

“A special thank you tonight to my mother, Skippy O’Connell, who 39 years ago got me a job in sound,” O’Connell said. “And when I asked her how I could thank her, »

My favorite best picture Oscar winner: Unforgiven

21 February 2017 5:28 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Clint Eastwood went back to the genre that made his name and deconstructed its tropes, making it current by incorporating the psychological impact of killing

The best picture race at the 1993 Oscars was one where many sides of 20th century machismo were examined – usually by groups of men shouting really loudly at each other. There was Scent of a Woman, where Al Pacino road tested his mid-90s “maximum volume” approach; Stephen Rea’s howls in the Crying Game; and Jack Nicholson’s bellows of pure testosterone in A Few Good Men. Merchant-Ivory’s rather more subtle Howard’s End featured mostly internal screams brought on by that most vexing of subjects: Edwardian class struggle. The winner, though, was a film in which toxic masculinity oozed out of the screen, delivered with a mix of muttering and barely raised voices.

Trump, Triumph and Speaking Truth to Power: Politics Take a Bow at 2017 Writers Guild Awards

19 February 2017 9:50 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When you think about the Writers Guild of America, which hosted two award ceremonies on Sunday night in two Blue cities, New York and Los Angeles, it’s no surprise that the writers spoke out. (Check out videos of some of the best bits below.)

For example, while accepting his life achievement award, filmmaker Oliver Stone got two standing ovations. After conservative James Woods was targeted at the top of the evening by WGA West Awards show host Patton Oswalt, retaliating by going onstage to steal his shoe, Woods presented the WGA award to the ultra liberal Stone, who starred him in “Salvador,” won three Oscars for “Midnight Express,” “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Platoon,” and penned “greed is good.”

Stone thanked mentors Robert Bolt and Ernest Lehman as well as Wma agent Ron Mardigian. He reminded that when he told Billy Wilder about his “Nixon” running time of 3 hours 10 minutes, »

In the remake, Kristen Wiig is set to play Nicholson’s daughter. Paramont Pictures has not commented on the casting rumors.

Sources told Variety that Nicholson loved the German film and quickly worked with the team at Paramont to secure the rights.

Jack Nicholson and Kristen Wiig Team for Toni Erdmann Remake

7 February 2017 5:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just weeks after Peter Fonda hinted his old friend Jack Nicholson was retiring, the Hollywood legend has shot that rumor down. Jack Nicholson has signed on to star alongside Kristen Wiig in Paramount Pictures' English-language remake of Toni Erdmann, one of this year's Oscar nominees for Best Foreign Language Picture. The studio has recently acquired the rights to remake this German-language film, and while there is no writer or director attached, the project does have some top-flight talent producing the remake.

Variety reports that Adam McKay and Will Ferrell will produce with their Gloria Sanchez Productions partner Jessica Elbaum. Gloria Sanchez Productions is a division of Adam McKay and Will Ferrell's Gary Sanchez Productions, which is dedicated to female-driven film and TV projects. They will all produce alongside original Toni Erdmann writer-director Maren Ade and Jonas Dornbach and Janine Jackowski, who produced the original movie.

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Writers and the scripts that made them great

25 January 2017 4:51 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Having scoured the ranks of actors to draw up a shortlist of the best of them and then a selection of their best work, we now move on to consider the best work by the greatest writers. This can be a harder thing to judge, given that there will often be a team of writers, or polishing work is done on a script that is otherwise someone else’s work. Quentin Tarantino did some polishing on Crimson Tide, but by contrast his script for Natural Born Killers is much less distinctively his, bearing as it does a lot of Oliver Stone’s fingerprints. What we will (try to) focus on are those writers who rather than being hacks for hire have instead crafted something all their own and seen it transition relatively unmolested to the screen.

Looking Back 25 Years: The Indie Film Awakening

24 January 2017 5:14 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This month, Cinelinx is taking you on a trip back through time. Join us as we examine how movies have changed over the last 100 years. This week, we're finishing out tour by going back to 1992. 

This article is part 4 of 4 in a series.

On December 26th, 1991, the Soviet Union dissolved. This signalled the formal end of the Cold War, which left the United States as the sole remaining superpower, but did not necessarily usher in an era of peace at home and abroad. This shift in power instead opened a void in eastern Europe and the middle east which would come to be a source of conflict for the next two decades and beyond. A deadly civil war »

Why Amy Adams is pivotal to Arrival’s success

24 January 2017 7:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 25, 2017

Arrival has 8 nominations at this year's Oscars, but nothing for its star, Amy Adams. Here's why the film wouldn't have worked without her.

Nb: The following contains mild spoilers for Arrival.

By now, you’ve probably looked through this year’s Oscar nominations, and alternately nodded and tutted your head at the choices. One of the most pleasing developments, at least for a genre site such as ours, is how much attention has been lavished on Arrival - director Denis Villeneuve’s smart, elegant sci-fi drama.

Arrival has managed to earn itself a highly impressive eight nominations, including Best Director for Denis Villeneuve, Best Adapted Screenplay for Eric Heisserer (the film’s based on Story Of Your Life by Ted Chiang) and Best Production Design. Most impressive of all, »

Has Jack Nicholson Officially Retired After 60 Years in Hollywood?

18 January 2017 3:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2010, three-time Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson starred in two movies, playing himself in the faux documentary I'm Still Here, and the failing businessman and father Charles Madison in How Do You Know. Unfortunately for fans of the legendary icon, those were his last two movies, and there have been rumors in the past that he was retired from acting, with one report from 2013 claiming the actor was suffering from memory loss, although the actor's reps shot down that report, claiming that he is looking at scripts and trying to figure out what his next project may be. It's been more than three years since that report surfaced, and we haven't heard about any new Jack Nicholson project. But now one of the actor's closest friends believes he has actually retired.

The Sun caught up with Peter Fonda, who starred alongside Jack Nicholson in the 1969 classic Easy Rider, and has »
