'A River Runs Through It': THR's 1992 Review
On Oct. 9, 1992, A River Runs Through It was released in theaters. Directed by Robert Redford, the drama about two preacher's sons growing up in rural Montana starred a young Brad Pitt in his first lead role in a major studio film. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

Following on the directorial heels of his Oscar-winning Ordinary People and the ambitious The Milagro Beanfield War, Robert Redford has crafted his most focused behind-the-camera effort yet with A River Runs Through It.

A lyrical, poignant drama that uses the angler’s art of fly fishing as a subtle metaphor for life’s...

“Wingman” Will Be Directed by Joseph Gordon Levitt and Starring Channing Tatum: I’m In

I’ve been watching Joseph Gordon Levitt since he was in the movie A River Runs Through It. He’s practically been on screen his entire career and yet he seems like he’s completely on the straight and now. I personally think that 500 Days of Summer was his coming out party and since that film he’s been a superior star. Not only does he have incredible dramatic skills but Jgl is hilarious as well. And let’s not forget he knows how to entertain. Ever see this guy on Lip Sync Battle? There’s pretty much nothing this guy can’t do. Now he’s

Dear Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Don’t Play Nightwing

Of all the actors out there, one guy who I respect more than most is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Not only do I think he’s an incredible talent but I feel like he’s made the right role decisions in his career. I mean we’re talking way back to when he was in A River Runs Through It as a kid. Then his role on 30 Rock from the Sun which seems like an eternity ago. He earned his wings on teeny bopper flicks like 10 Things I Hate about You but once we all saw him in 500 Days of Summer he

Witness the Evolution of Cinematography with Compilation of Oscar Winners

This past weekend, the American Society of Cinematographers awarded Greig Fraser for his contribution to Lion as last year’s greatest accomplishment in the field. Of course, his achievement was just a small sampling of the fantastic work from directors of photography, but it did give us a stronger hint at what may be the winner on Oscar night. Ahead of the ceremony, we have a new video compilation that honors all the past winners in the category at the Academy Awards

Created by Burger Fiction, it spans the stunning silent landmark Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans all the way up to the end of Emmanuel Lubezki‘s three-peat win for The Revenant. Aside from the advancements in color and aspect ration, it’s a thrill to see some of cinema’s most iconic shots side-by-side. However, the best way to experience the evolution of the craft is by

ASC Awards 2017: ‘Lion’ Steals ‘La La Land’s’ Thunder
While Damien Chazelle predictably took the DGA Award for “La La Land” on Saturday night, the ASC rejected the self-reverential Hollywood musical in favor of the more dramatic and politically impactful “Lion,” honoring Australian cinematographer Greig Fraser. “Lion” director Garth Davis took home Best First Director at the DGAs.

However, “La La Land’s” cinematographer, Linus Sandgren, still remains the Oscar favorite, despite the fact that, in the last 20 years, the ASC winner has taken the Academy Award 11 times.

With “Lion,” the incredibly true story of Saroo Brierley (Dev Patel), the Indian who used Google Earth to locate his birth family several decades after his separation and adoption in Australia, Fraser essentially made two movies in one. Fortunately, the top Camerimage prize winner had previous experience shooting in India.

Dee Rees Brings ‘Mudbound’ & Thoughts Beyond Race to Sundance

Dee Rees Brings ‘Mudbound’ & Thoughts Beyond Race to Sundance
Park City — It’s hard to imagine a time when the issues of race and class have been more ripe in America and, not surprisingly, a film that delves deeply into both subjects has attracted considerable preliminary interest from buyers at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Mudbound,” premiering Saturday night, follows one black and one white family, living off the land of the Mississippi Delta. Both are bound by farming and the “mud” of their lives, though they both have markedly different takes on their lots in life, given the social strictures of the Jim Crow South.

Director Dee Rees said in interview with Variety this week that she was drawn to the project – based on the 2008 novel by Hillary Jordan—because of “the multiple points of view that these two families represent and this tortured symbiotic relationship they have.”

The title has become one of the most buzzed

Robert Redford "Getting Tired Of Acting"; Retirement Impending

Image via Marvel Studios

Hollywood is about to lose another great — well, sort of. Robert Redford is a name that has long been associated with quality films. From his part in classic movies like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, and All the President's Men — not to mention his work in founding the world famous Sundance Film Festival, where the more indie pictures thrive — he’s a man who will have a lasting impact on the industry long after he passes.

But before you get concerned, no, that’s not something we anticipate anytime soon. As great as Redford’s acting cache is, given his experience, he was bound to retire soon. Based on a recent interview with The Guardian, however, it sounds like that will be coming sooner rather than later.

“I’m getting tired of acting. I’m an impatient person, so it’s hard for

Harry Potter Creatures Run Wild in New Fantastic Beasts TV Spots

Harry Potter Creatures Run Wild in New Fantastic Beasts TV Spots
Three new TV spots have arrived from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. And if they seem overly familiar to you, perhaps its because this new Harry Potter spin-off is curbing from the original Ghostbusters and it's recent sequel. As we see in this latest footage, Newt Scamander is responsible for unleashing an army of crazy critters on New York City. And now, he must clean up the mess and save the day!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander, played by acclaimed actor Eddie Redmayne, has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident...Were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Final Trailer Is All That’s Best In Potter Films

As we get closer to the mid-November release, we finally get a truly in-depth look at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and it turns out that it was worth waiting for.

Anything related to the Harry Potter franchise really needs no further sell, but even though the book and film series is almost universally loved, some films are better than others, and certainly some books leave something to be desired. Moreover, some installments aim toward the simplistic, while others (especially when considering the films) look to broaden the scope of the dialog.

They’re all good, but that means something different in some cases. For example, Alfonso Cuarón’s Prisoner of Azkaban stands out among the film as the richest effort, which hoped to elevate the text and its themes.

If the trailer can be believed, it looks as though this one is moving in a similar direction,

Interview: Talking Pete's Dragon With Robert Redford And Bryce Dallas Howard

A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, Pete's Dragon is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete (Oakes Fegley) and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. The film is directed by David Lowery and stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Wes Bentley and Karl Urban. At a recent press day in Los Angeles we had the opportunity to sit and speak with Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard about bringing this re-imagined classic to life, working with the kids in the film, how the industry has changed over the years and how it's like to work with a Legend. Here is what they had to say.

I would imagine you’ve reached a point in your career where you can pick and choose what you want to do. In recent years, you’ve played everything from big superhero movies to this very sweet family film.

Watch Ben Affleck And Anna Kendrick In The New Trailer For The Accountant

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a second trailer for the upcoming drama The Accountant.

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town Cpa office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations.

With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

The film also stars Jon Bernthal (“Fury,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “24”), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”), with Jeffrey Tambor (TV’s “Transparent,” “The Hangover” films

The 10 Best Comic Book Movie Scenes

Anghus Houvouras with his 10 best comic book movie scenes…

As I watched X-Men: Apocalypse this week, I marveled at a particular thought that was swimming around my cerebellum: Bryan Singer has directed four of the best comic book scenes ever staged. This seems somewhat surprising since the finished films end up being a mish-mash of success and failure. More like ‘the X-Mess’. Am I right? And yet, within some of those X-Men films are sequences that are so perfect you begin to wonder how Singer’s brilliance doesn’t extend to the rest of the movie. Like Paul Maclean in A River Runs Through It, a character who achieves perfection while fly fishing but is never able to find that kind of grace in the rest of his life. It kind of makes Singer’s X-Men films kind of tragic. Flashes of brilliance ultimately smothered in mediocrity. Like an ice
