Interview: William Brawner on '25 To Life' and Living With HIV/AIDS

29 November 2014 7:48 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

For over 25 years, William Brawner kept his HIV-Positive status a secret from everyone in his life except for a few close family members. After engaging in risky sexual behavior as a popular student on the campus of Howard University, he eventually went on to expose his secret as an adult, and suffered the fallout of reactions from his classmates, friends and community. Brawner's experience is captured in "25 To Life," the new feature documentary directed by Mike Brown, which Affrm brings to theaters nationwide on World AIDS Day, December 1. He made time to speak with S&A about the movie and his life as an HIV/AIDS educator at Haven Youth Center in Philadelphia. »

'Lord of the Rings' Composer Howard Shore on Scoring 80 Movies: "I Often Felt Like Frodo"

3 November 2014 8:20 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Before Howard Shore, 68, scored more than 80 movies — winning three Oscars, three Golden Globes and four Grammys in the process — the composer spent his formative years playing sax in Canadian rock band Lighthouse and logging some 1,000 gigs from 1969 to 1972. "We opened for Jimi Hendrix, toured with Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead, played the [bigger than Woodstock] Isle of Wight. Elton John opened for us in Philadelphia," recalls Shore, who will be honored for his wide-ranging body of work with the Maestro Award at the Billboard/The Hollywood Reporter Film & TV

How Overdue Actors Can Win for the ‘Wrong’ Performance

31 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The frontrunners in this year’s Oscar actor races look to be made up of a lot of first-time nominees. Patricia Arquette is sitting pretty at the top of most pundits’ lists for supporting actress for “Boyhood” and J.K. Simmons is most people’s pick for supporting actor for “Whiplash.” The competitive best actor race is shaping up to be made up of almost entirely first-time nominees.

It’s only the best actress race where the veterans are thriving, from frontrunner Julianne Moore for “Still Alice” (a four-time nominee) to the likes of Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon, Hilary Swank and Marion Cotillard and frequent nominees Amy Adams and Jessica Chastain. Rosamund Pike and Felicity Jones are the only newcomers circling the field.

Moore is currently considered the one to beat, and not just because her performance as a professor diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in “Still Alice” is stunning work—she »

Oscars flashback: 5 reasons I predicted Meg Ryan to win Best Actress for 'When a Man Loves a Woman' in 1994

21 October 2014 6:36 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Twenty years ago I was still a journalism student, there was no Gold Derby, and I hadn’t even met Tom O’Neil. It was kind of like beginning of “The Wizard of Oz.” Dorothy was still in Kansas, everything was in black and white, and she had yet to encounter the Wicked Witch of the West. But like O’Neil (and most Gold Derby readers born before the fall of the Berlin Wall) I was already obsessed with the Academy Awards. -Break- And with just a few months remaining in 1994, I felt fairly confident about many of the major races. The Best Picture category seemed to have four locks – “Forrest Gump,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Quiz Show” and “The Shawshank Redemption.” The fifth slot was up for grabs, with the surprise hit British comedy “Four Weddings and a Funeral” looking like a real possibility. Even though he had just won Best Actor for 1993’s “Philadelphia, »

How Felicity Jones won the blessing of Stephen Hawking's wife

14 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When The Theory of Everything debuted at the Toronto Film Festival, audiences couldn't stop talking about Eddie Redmayne, who generated instant Oscar buzz for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking, the British cosmologist who's spent most of his adult life in a wheelchair and speaking through a computer. The praise is well-deserved. Hawking might be the story, but the film is based on the book of his first wife, Jane, played by Felicity Jones. They married in 1965, shortly after Hawking was diagnosed with autoimmune disease and doctors estimated he only had two years to live. With her unflagging devotion, Hawking went »

Reeve Receives Standing Ovation at Oscar Ceremony (Video)

Christopher Reeve Foundation for spinal cord and stem cell research (photo: Darryl Hannah and Christopher Reeve in 'Rear Window') (See previous post: "'Superman' Christopher Reeve and his Movies: Ten-Year Death Anniversary.") In his 1998 autobiography Still Me, Christopher Reeve recalled: "At an especially bleak moment [prior to an operation that might result in his death], the door [of his hospital room] flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay." The "old friend" was the recently deceased Robin Williams, whom Reeve had befriended while both were studying at Juillard. Eventually, Reeve became a staunch advocate for spinal cord and stem cell research, sponsoring with his wife the Christopher Reeve Foundation — later renamed the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation (and formerly known »

Bill Murray Talks Turning Down 'Forrest Gump,' 'Philadelphia' Roles

10 October 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Bill Murray opened up about a wide range of topics – including his early years at Saturday Night Live and his relationships with women – during a recent interview with Howard Stern on the DJ's SiriusXM program The Howard Stern Show. But in the most intriguing conversational detour, the comic actor commented on why he passed on a number of acclaimed film roles – including lawyer Joe Miller (a part secured by Denzel Washington) in Jonathan Demme's Oscar-decorated 1993 drama, Philadelphia, and Tom Hanks' iconic title role in Robert Zemeckis' 1994 epic, »

Steven Spielberg Begins Principal Photography On Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg has begun principal photography on an untitled Cold War spy thriller starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump,” “Philadelphia”).

The production, which also stars Tony Award winner Mark Rylance (“Intimacy,” “The Other Boleyn Girl”), Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan (“Gone Baby Gone,” “Win Win”) and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda (“M*A*S*H,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors”), will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.

Production in New York was possible due to support from state and local film agencies, and in Berlin, through the support of several film funds.

The film is the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

20th Century Fox is co-financing the film with DreamWorks in association with Participant Media, »

Oscar Bait: Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' spy thriller begins production

6 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why don't we talk about Steven Spielberg's "Munich" more? Flipping his sentimentalist reputation the bird, the docudramatized look inside Mossad's covert retaliation against the Palestine Liberation Organization is unmercifully tense and morally complicated to the point of inducing anxiety attacks. "Munich" is weaponized blockbuster filmmaking — and it sounds like Spielberg's antsy to return to the style. Perhaps praise for the 2006 Best Picture-nominee will resurface next October, when Spielberg adds another notch to his thriller belt with a Cold War drama starring "Catch Me If You Can" star Tom Hanks. Dreamworks and Walt Disney Pictures announced today that principal photography has begun on the currently untitled film, which costars Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda. Shooting around New York and Berlin, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney thrust into Cold War chaos when the CIA recruits him for a "near-impossible mission to negotiate the »

Filming Begins on Steven Spielberg’s Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks and Disney have announced that principal photography has commenced on Steven Spielberg's untitled Cold War spy thriller starring Tom Hanks.  As we previously reported, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  The film will also star Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda, and will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.  Following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, and The Terminal, this will mark Spielberg's fourth film collaboration with Hanks, and hopefully it will be a fruitful one, especially since they're working from a script by the Coen Brothers.  Hanks and Spielberg's most recent collaboration was as executive producers on HBO's miniseries The Pacific. Hit the jump for the press release. »

Will 'The Equalizer's success pressure Denzel into Neeson Season?

2 October 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It was a good run, Liam Neeson. The 62-year-old who was Oskar Schindler and Alfred Kinsey spent the last seven years kicking the crap out of much younger bad guys in bone-crushing B-movies, best epitomized by the Taken films. But as of this past weekend, there's a new sheriff in town. Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington, one of the biggest movie stars of the past 25 years, and almost always, the coolest guy in the room, delivered his 12th No. 1 film, The Equalizer. Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), The Equalizer is a Neeson-ized adaptation of the 1980s CBS detective drama series that starred Edward Woodward. »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Spotlight on the Stars: Denzel Washington

24 September 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at pretty much one of the definitions of an A-list actor. He’s Denzel Washington, a two time Academy Award winning thespian and giant in the industry. Washington does more than just act of course, he’s an iconic movie star, there’s no doubt about that. If anyone is right for this sort of a spotlight, it’s him. Washington got his start in TV movies, but on the big screen he made his first mark with Cry Freedom, which also got him nominated for Best Supporting Actor, his first nomination of what would become a half dozen (and counting). That established him as an up and comer, leading to his television role on the show St. Elsewhere, which ran for half a decade. That would open up some major film roles, including Glory, where he received »
