A New ‘Brave’ Trailer from Pixar

21 November 2011 8:45 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Brave, Pixar’s summer 2012 offering, has a new trailer for you to enjoy.

Click here to view the embedded video.

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an »

Beverly Hills, CA . The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the career of Oscar®-winner Vanessa Redgrave with its first-ever European tribute to an actor, on Sunday, November 13, in London. The event, hosted by David Hare, will include special guests Meryl Streep, Ralph Fiennes, Joely Richardson, James Earl Jones and Eileen Atkins. Past Academy President Sid Ganis will introduce the evening.

The salute will explore Redgrave’s dramatic range and exquisite skill. Hare has created three film sequences, each with its own narrative, showing the depth and array of characters that Redgrave has inhabited.

A member of the distinguished Redgrave acting family, Vanessa rose to prominence in 1961, playing Rosalind in As You Like It with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Since then, she has made dozens of stage appearances and has appeared in more than 70 films. »

Vanessa Redgrave Academy Salute Pt.2: Paddy Chayefsky Denounces Political Oscar Speeches

4 November 2011 9:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Vanessa Redgrave Academy Salute: From Pariah to Honoree [Photo: Vanessa Redgrave, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Natasha Richardson, as ballerina Isadora Duncan in Isadora.] Later on, at the behest of producer Daniel Melnick (Straw Dogs, Making Love) screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky (The Goddess, Network) prefaced his announcement of the Best Screenwriting Oscar with the following (also via Inside Oscar): Before I get on to the writing awards, there's a little matter I'd like to tidy up … at least if I expect to live with myself tomorrow morning. I would like to say, personal opinion, of course, that I'm sick and tired of people exploiting the Academy Awards for the propagation of their own personal propaganda. I would like to suggest to Miss Redgrave that her winning an Academy Award is not a pivotal moment in history, does not require a proclamation and a simple "Thank you" would have sufficed. Chayefsky's use of the Academy Awards to make that particular political statement — that no political statements should »

Vanessa Redgrave Gets Academy Salute

Vanessa Redgrave The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the career of Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave, one of the most distinguished performers of the second half of the 20th century, with its "first-ever European tribute to an actor." The Redgrave salute will take place on Sunday, November 13, in London. Hosted by two-time Oscar nominee David Hare (The Hours, The Reader), the event will feature special guests Meryl Streep, Ralph Fiennes, James Earl Jones, Eileen Atkins, and Redgrave's daughter Joely Richardson. Past Academy President Sid Ganis will introduce the evening. Who would have thought … Vanessa Redgrave, who has been reviled by many because of both her left-wing political stance and her support for the Palestinian cause. Back in March 1978, Redgrave used her Oscar victory (as Best Supporting Actress for Julia) to thank Academy members for voting for her despite pressure from "Zionist hoodlums." Some booed her speech and »

TV review: Fry's Planet Word; Spooks; Downton Abbey

23 September 2011 2:15 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Linguistics isn't natural television material; it needs a wit and a wag and a wordsmith such as Stephen Fry to bring it to life

How do you say Obama in sign language? It's like an O followed by a little flutter of the hand. To me it looks like a fish, a fish beginning with O. Brilliant address to Congress today, by an oarfish. Oh I see, the flutter is a flag, the stars and stripes.

Madonna? Easy: pointy tits. Hitler? Moustache, with or without mini sieg heil salute, the signer chooses (maybe it depends on where you are and who you're with). Oh go on Stephen – this is Fry's Planet Word (BBC2, Saturday) – ask these deaf people how you sign "Stephen Fry". Perhaps it's modesty, or the fear that there is no way and you have to spell it out, but he doesn't. I'd say you'd hold your nose to one side, »

Hot Rods & Droids: A George Lucas Profile (Part 4)

5 July 2011 11:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker George Lucas in the fourth of a six part feature... read parts one, two and three.

For over a decade filmmaker George Lucas had been developing a project which was a gender reversal of the Biblical story about Moses being hidden as a baby in the bulrushes. When asked to describe Willow (1988), Lucas called it “an adventure fantasy that takes place a long time ago in a mythical land.” Cast as the title character who becomes the guardian and defender of the wayward baby from an evil sorceress was Warwick Davis who made a name for himself playing the Ewok known as Wicket. “I was on holiday in southwest England when I got a call from George to come to Elstree – one of the major British studios – and audition for the part,” remembers Davis. “Actually, I did four auditions altogether; three in England and one in America. »

Talking Points!

Last month I asked you to vote on the most memorable characters within the ranks of the Best Actress nominees. It wasn't about who gave the best performances but which characters have stuck with you the most. Here are the results -- I assumed you'd like to see.

1991-1996 

*Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) from Silence of the Lambs Thelma (Geena Davis) from Thelma & Louise Louise (Susan Sarandon) from Thelma & Louise *Ada McGrath (Holly Hunter) from The Piano Francesca Johnson (Meryl Streep) from The Bridges of Madison County

runners up (in descending order):  (four way tie for sixth place!!!) Sera Leaving Las Vegas, Tina Turner What's Love Got to Do With It,  Elinor Dashwood Sense & Sensibility and *Sister Helen Prejean Dead Man Walking and... coming in tenth *Margaret Schlegel Howards End

observations: Clarice Starling had the widest margin of victory in any of the polls, a classic character indeed. »

Culture Flash: rent

This week's news in the arts

'No romance without finance," Gwen Guthrie insisted on 1986's Ain't Nothin' Goin' on But the Rent. Many young people today would agree. Dubbed Generation Rent, they are in the news following claims that two-thirds of potential first-time buyers have little prospect of owning a home for the next five years.

Renting in Britain has always been stigmatised, though. Few things could have been more damaging to the characters created by George Eliot or Em Forster than the loss of a property, such as The Mill on the Floss or Howards End. And Hilaire Belloc's 1913 tale The Lodger, later made into a Hitchcock film, would horrify today's buy-to-let market, with its "Might your tenant be a serial killer?" paranoia. Renting is not a happy experience in Roman Polanski's films either. In Repulsion, Catherine Deneuve slashes her landlord to death when he pops by her »

Costuming Helena, Finding Sherlock, Winning Oscar

15 February 2011 5:01 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Interview

As one half of the first costuming team I ever noticed as a young movie fanatic, interviewing Jenny Beavan was a special treat. She's currently enjoying her ninth Oscar nomination for her work on The King's Speech. This is her third solo nomination. She and her former partner John Bright costumed the Ishmael Merchant & James Ivory period dramas that I grew up obsessing over: A Room With A View, Howard's End, Maurice and the like. When Jenny and I spoke to discuss her current Oscar run for The King's Speech, however, it was less period drama and more modern comedy. "I'm guessing as to what you're saying" she told me while technical difficulties had us both comically shouting into our phones / computers until the situation was resolved.

We began at the beginning.

Merchant/Ivory is after all, a very good place to start, both for a young film buff »

Oscars: ‘The King’s Speech’ Gets Crowned at BAFTA

13 February 2011 4:51 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Paul Sheehan

HollywoodNews.com: Among the seven prizes claimed by “The King’s Speech” at the 64th annual edition of the BAFTAs were Best Picture and Best British Picture. No film had managed to pull off that double play since the latter award was re-introduced in 1992.

The most recent British film to take the top award was “Slumdog Millionaire” two years ago. However, it lost the best of British race to the documentary “Man of Wire” which followed in the footsteps of Phillippe Petit’s 1974 walk between the two World Trade Center towers.

For two decades from its inception in 1947, BAFTA bestowed both Best Picture and Best British Picture. Home-grown fare was eligible to compete in the wide-open category as well and at least one British film a year contended. In 1948, the Best Picture winner was the British made “Hamlet” (which also took the top Oscar). However, it lost »
