Lee Recalls Katrina Sadness

24 July 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Filmmaker Spike Lee knew he had to act for the victims of Hurricane Katrina after watching the horrific disaster hit the Us Gulf Coast, from thousands of miles away in Italy. The Malcolm X director was attending the Venice Film Festival last summer when the hurricane hit Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, and famously flooded wide parts of New Orleans. Lee decided to make a four-hour documentary When The Levees Broke: A Requiem In Four Acts for cable channel HBO to celebrate the spirit of New Orleans residents. He says, "I was just really mad and sad. This is going to be a major moment in American history, and I want to do something about it. What I was really amazed by was the spirit of the people of New Orleans. Another thing I found amazing was the humor. They're profane. We wanted to record the raw feelings of these people. That's what makes New Orleans the most unique city in America, and that's tough for me to say, being from New York." Lee takes the opportunity to blast the country's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for their slow response to the natural disaster. He says, "Volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods. It's not just New Orleans. We should be scared because if FEMA - you saw what they did. Pray to God you don't have to depend on FEMA. This stuff affects all Americans." »

'Inside Man' powers boxoffice with $29 million

27 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Throwing off a lingering winter chill, the first weekend of spring saw the North American boxoffice perk up. Universal Pictures' Inside Man took moviegoers hostage as it commanded the top spot with a bigger-than-expected $29 million bow. The total boxoffice for the 116 films tracked by the Hollywood Reporter was $109.3 million, up 10.4% from the comparable weekend in 2005 when Sony Pictures' comedy Guess Who, starring Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher, took the top slot with $20.7 million, followed by that weekend's other new arrival, Warner Bros. Pictures' Miss Congeniality 2, starring Sandra Bullock, which scored $14 million. It was the first weekend in a while to see an uptick in comparison to last year. Though a taught, twisty thriller, the R-rated Inside Man left its distributor, Universal Pictures, laughing all the way to the bank. Director Spike Lee and star Denzel Washington -- whose previous collaborations include Mo' Better Blues and Malcolm X -- each scored a personal best as the movie attracted older moviegoers to the multiplex. The Imagination Entertainment production, which boasts supporting turns from Jodie Foster and Clive Owen, drew an audience with 68% over age 30. The majority reported Washington's star presence as the primary factor drawing them to the movie. »
