Everything we know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, including trailers, cast, release date and spoilers

10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jj Abrams hotly-anticipated continuation of the classic space saga, is fast approaching. We're mere months away from heading back to a galaxy far, far away, but there's still plenty of information floating in the ether about this sequel. Here's everything you need to know...

John Boyega is a Jedi and Kylo Ren Isn't a Sith

A video posted by Digital Spy (@digitalspy) on Aug 28, 2015 at 2:55am Pdt

A special Instagram teaser gave us a look at John Boyega's Fin wielding a blue lightsaber, allegedly the one that once belonged to Luke Skywalker. Who trained him? We don't know (possibly Luke), but what is known is that he's facing down Kylo Ren in a forest.

Those who thought that Kylo was a Sith Lord will be surprised to learn that he's in fact a "Knight of Ren". According to Jj Abrams, he works »

Steven Spielberg poll: What was best decade of his career?

21 August 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Director Steven Spielberg's career has evolved over more than four decades, from "Duel" in 1971 to "Lincoln,"his most recent acclaimed effort, in 2012. Along the way he won three Oscars and was responsible for such major cultural, critical and commercial turning points as "Jaws" (1975), "E.T." (1982), the "Indiana Jones" franchise, "Schindler's List" (1993) and "Saving Private Ryan" (1998). But when was Steven Spielberg at his best? -Break- 'Crash': 10 years after controversial Oscars win, does it still deserve the backlash?

'Citizen Kane' Tops BBC's List of "100 Greatest American Films", Where Does Your Favorite Landc

21 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Leave it to the Brits to compile a list of the best American films of all-time. BBC Culture has published a list of what it calls "The 100 Greatest American Films", as selected by 62 international film critics in order to "get a global perspective on American film." As BBC Culture notes, the critics polled represent a combination of broadcasters, book authors and reviewers at various newspapers and magazines across the world. As for what makes an American filmc "Any movie that received funding from a U.S. source," BBC Culture's publication states, which is to say the terminology was quite loose, but the list contains a majority of the staples you'd expect to see. Citizen Kane -- what elsec -- comes in at #1, and in typical fashion The Godfather follows at #2. Vertigo, which in 2012 topped Sight & Sound's list of the greatest films of all-time, comes in at #3 on BBC Culture's list. »

BBC Names 100 Greatest U.S. Films

21 July 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every now and then a major publication or news organisation comes up with a top fifty or one hundred films of all time list - a list which always stirs up debate, discussion and often interesting arguments about the justifications of the list's inclusions, ordering and notable exclusions.

Today it's the turn of BBC Culture who consulted sixty-two international film critics including print reviews, bloggers, broadcasters and film academics to come up with what they consider the one-hundred greatest American films of all time. To qualify, the film had to be made by a U.S. studio or mostly funded by American money.

Usually when a list of this type is done it is by institutes or publications within the United States asking American critics their favourites. This time it's non-American critics born outside the culture what they think are the best representations of that culture. Specifically they were asked »

5 of the Most Fascinating Details About the Amy Winehouse Documentary

3 July 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

We all knew Amy Winehouse, the wildly famous singer. But as a new documentary about her life proves, we really didn't know much at all about the real young woman behind the soul-deep voice, pile of beehive hair, and scandal-fueled headlines. Amy premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last month - where I had a chance to see it - and inspired an emotional outpouring from critics and fans alike. I sat down with director Asif Kapadia recently in La to talk about the incredibly revealing footage he found and used to shape the movie. He also addressed the wide fissure he uncovered between the singer's public image and personal story. One of the film's biggest revelations: just how scary smart and wickedly funny Amy was. "I think there was a word she used a lot: bored. She was just so clever," Asif told me. "Her friends would be playing Hide and Seek, »

Bridge Of Spies Trailer Find Tom Hanks in the Thick of Cold War Politics

5 June 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On the heels of yesterday's poster debut, Dreamworks and Fox 2000 have released the first trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s Cold War thriller Bridge of Spies. From a script by Joel and Ethan Coen, and Matt Charman, the film stars Tom Hanks as Brooklyn Insurance Lawyer dragged into the thick of Cold War politics when the CIA recruits him to negotiate with the Soviets for the release of an American spy pilot. This is without a doubt one of the most exciting films of the year. From Schindler's List to Saving Private Ryan to the criminally underrated Lincoln, Spielberg has a stunning track record of excellent historical dramas, and it looks like Bridge of Spies could be the next masterpiece on that list. Not to mention the added edge it gets from a Coen brothers script.

Cannes Review: Visceral Hungarian Holocaust Drama 'Son Of Saul' Could Be A Palme D'Or Frontrunner

16 May 2015 5:31 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Depicting the Holocaust on screen has always been a prickly matter. For many years, it was shied away from entirely, with some arguing, perhaps correctly, that cinema was incapable of capturing the true horror of the most evil, repulsive acts that human beings have inflicted on each other. Over time, filmmakers became more confident in attempting it: sometimes sensitively and successfully ("The Pawnbroker," "Schindler's List," obviously "Shoah"), sometimes in ways that felt crass and exploitative ("Life Is Beautiful"). At this point, not one but two installments of a superhero franchise have featured scenes set in concentration camps. "Son Of Saul," the first feature from Hungarian director László Nemes, and the rare first feature to premiere In Competition at Cannes, is a much more serious attempt at portraying the Holocaust, and though it has a few elements of its construction that might be questionable, it's »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1987

13 May 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...

Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.

What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction »

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Oscar Nominated Film Series: Munich - Director Spielberg's Most Satisfying Effort in Decades

3 May 2015 7:46 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Munich' movie cover 'Munich' movie review: Steven Spielberg tackles political time-space continuum in wildly uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller Alternately intriguing and irritating, thought-provoking and banal, subtle and patronizing, the biggest surprise about Steven Spielberg's Munich is that it – however grudgingly – works. The film, which Spielberg himself has referred to as a "prayer for peace," follows five men contracted by the Israeli government to avenge the massacre of that country's athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Sizable chunks of this political thriller with a Message (capital "M") are simplistically written, clumsily acted, and handled with the director's notoriously heavy touch, but the old adage – blood begets blood – even if somewhat muddled, is too timely not to make an impact. Complex 'Munich' movie plot Based on George Jonas' 1984 book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, whose veracity has been questioned in some quarters, Munich begins as »

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

'Nashville Recap': Juliette Gets Her Groove, Rayna Makes a Pricey Move

30 April 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This week on Nashville, there was seemingly no problem that neither money nor misogyny couldn't solve.

The episode opens with Rayna calling Deacon from her private jet, telling him that she's off to find a new distribution deal. What she's really up to is trying to convince Deacon's estranged sister, Beverly, to cough up a liver for her brother. Through a series of flashbacks we learn that Beverly and Deacon's singing partnership was derailed by Rayna coming into the picture and that Beverly's jealousy runs deep. We also learn that »

A Nazi Legacy: What Our Fathers Did screenwriter Philippe Sands with director David Evans Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

David Evans' riveting dive into the personal and historical past of three families is accompanied by private photographs and previously unseen home movies provided by two sons, Niklas Frank and Horst von Wächter, both born in the spring of 1939.

A Nazi Legacy: What Our Fathers Did had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and I met up with director David Evans and screenwriter Philippe Sands for a conversation at high noon. It led us to Leonardo Da Vinci's Lady With An Ermine, First Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Luis Moreno Ocampo, Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Steven Spielberg's red in Schindler's List.

Human Rights lawyer and author Philippe Sands, who lost ancestors in the Holocaust, is at the centre of the documentary's extraordinary constellation. Going on 70 years after »

Is Man of Steel in colour a better Superman movie?

24 April 2015 6:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Superman fans were divided over Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. It seems you either loved Henry Cavill's turn as Clark Kent, or you very much didn't.

One of the (several) reasons some fans were not so fond of the film, was Snyder's Dark Knight school of making the film look very grainy and miserable. What would it look like if some classic Superman colours were added?

Clever editors at VideoLab have tweaked with the colours of the film to make it look much more bright, beautiful and in keeping with the original Superman comics and films.

"Turns out there was a beautiful Zack Snyder movie hiding underneath the bleak colouring," VideoLab said. "Would Man of Steel have been more successful at the box office if it wasn't coloured like Schindler's List?"

We're not expecting its sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to incorporate these findings, especially with »

Can a different color pallette change your views on Man of Steel? The fine folks over at Video Lab are trying to find out.   From 300, to Watchmen to Man of Steel (and by the looks of it, Batman v Superman too) Snyder's film's have had a distinctive hue that tries to capture the mood and tension of the given scene.  While some applaud Snyder's visual sensibilities, others can't seem to look past how unnatural certain scenes look.  Take a look at the video below and decide which version you like best.       VideoLab attempts to turn back time and restore the natural color & brightness in shots from DC's Man of Steel. Turns out there was a beautiful Zack Snyder movie hiding underneath the bleak coloring. Would Man of Steel have been more successful at the box office if it wasn't colored like Schindler's List?

Remembering Sidney Lumet

1 April 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

April 9th will mark the four year anniversary of director Sidney Lumet's passing, at age 86. Lumet was the first director I interviewed whose one-sheet posters hung on my wall as a kid. He was an idol, an icon, and an inspiration. I wasn't yet 30 in April 1997, when I met him at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills for our interview at the press junket for "Night Falls On Manhattan," one of his solid, authentic urban dramas that blended crime, politics and personal revelations that became his signature.

Lumet immediately put any butterflies I had at ease. Diminutive, but with the infectious energy of a teenager, his was a disarming presence. He paid me a compliment on my sportcoat, saying that I looked a bit like the young Mickey Rourke (which I still don't see, but what the hell), then went on to regale me for an hour with »
