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 »

Is Man Of Steel Better In 'Color'?

23 April 2015 5:48 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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? What do you think? Production Note: We're »

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 »

Nolan also won Best Director for the sci-fi drama.

Ralph Fiennes was honoured at the annual ceremony with a "legend" award presented by Schindler's List co-star Liam Neeson. Rosamund Pike was named Best Actress for her Oscar-nominated role in Gone Girl, but was sadly absent.

What movie, TV show or music did your parents ban from you as a kid?

25 March 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Raunchy comedies. Scary movies. Songs with explicit lyrics. Space, the final frontier. When we're kids, we're frequently banned from checking out films, TV, music or other entertainment before we're "ready." Whatever that means. At HitFix, we discovered there's a range of what was banned in our households when we were children. Some folks like lucky-duck Gregory Ellwood had no bans at all. Some bans didn't hold. Some bans were so intense, they blanketed all corners of media. Below are some of our staffers sounding off on what wasn't allowed in their household. Share with us in the comments what stuff you couldn't watch or hear. Chris Eggertsen - "Married...With Children" "Married...With Children" was like the Devil in our house, and here's the kicker: I'm almost positive my mother never watched it before banning it. It was enough that a random Christian woman living halfway across the country whom »

Hard to believe: John Williams is not scoring Steven Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies'

18 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the first time in almost 30 years a Steven Spielberg film will not be scored by John Williams.  That was the sad news DreamWorks Studios tried to avoid making headlines with this morning with the announcement that Thomas Newman would compose the music for Spielberg's upcoming thriller "Bridge of Spies." According to a release from the studio through distributor Walt Disney Pictures, Williams work schedule "was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected."   The 83-year-old composer has enjoyed a remarkable career winning five Academy Awards including three Oscars for Spielberg films "E.T.," "Schindler's List" and "Jaws."  The duo most recently collaborated on 2013's "Lincoln" for which Williams also earned an Original Score nomination. Williams' last theatrical work was 2013's "The Book Thief" which was his 49th nomination. He has also won a remarkable 22 Grammy Awards. Williams is still expected to »

Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies' Loses Composer John Williams

18 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

DreamWorks Pictures'/Fox 2000 Pictures' upcoming dramatic thriller directed by three-time Academy Award&#174-winning director Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List) and starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia), has been, as previously announced, titled Bridge of Spies. In addition, 12-time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Saving Mr. Banks) has been signed to score the film, as John Williams' schedule was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected.

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

Liam Neeson Will Stop Making Action Movies in 2 Years

12 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the success of Taken in 2009, Liam Neeson carved out quite a niche for himself as an older action star. His career certainly careened down this path, with the iconic actor appearing in 9 more action-packed thrillers that includ The A-Team, The Next Three Days, Unknown, The Grey, Battleship, Taken 2, Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones and Taken 3. Now, on the eve of his latest 'geriaction' movie, as some have dubbed them, Liam Neeson has declared that he will stop making action movies in 2 years, if he is able to make it that far.

Good Morning America caught up with Liam Neeson to chat about this weekend's Run All Night, which may certainly leave some fans with a sense of deja vu, as it once again features the actor running with a gun as he sometimes screams into a cell phone. The 62 year-old confirms that his days as an action star are numbered though, »

Liam Neeson Plans to Stop Making Action Films

12 March 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After a long career, Liam Neeson transitioned from films like "Schindler's List" to become an action star. Now that the actor is 62 years old and is promoting his latest action film "Run All Knight," Neeson is being asked about whether he has given thought to step away from the action genre. "Maybe two more year if God spares me and I'm healthy," he told The Guardian. "But after that, I'll stop [the action] I think." Neeson recently ended the "Taken" trilogy and will soon appear in smaller roles in "Ted 2" and the "Entourage" movie, before boarding Martin Scorsese's "Silence." Meanwhile, "Run All Night" is set to hit theaters this Friday. »

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

In case you missed it, the Oscars were this past weekend and Birdman was the big winner. The Academy’s choice to award Alejandro González Iñárritu's fever dream was a genuine shock, with Boyhood the running favourite for many months. Nonetheless, some things never change, and in that vein it's certainly a non-surprise the Academy also hardly noticed the most ambitious blockbuster of 2014: the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar. Indeed, I use the phrase "non-surprise", because how could it be a winner when it was only nominated for the bare minimum of five Oscars in technical categories that are reserved as consolation prizes?

This is by all means par for the course with a film that has »

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »

Black Author Discovers Her Grandfather Was Nazi Villain of Schindler's List

In 2008, Jennifer Teege was strolling around a library in her native Germany for books on the depression she'd been struggling with when she spotted a cover photograph that looked strangely familiar: her biological mother. So began a shocking odyssey in which Teege would learn the painful truth: Her maternal grandfather was Amon Goeth, the infamous Nazi war criminal portrayed by Ralph Fiennes in Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning film Schindler's List. Now Teege, a German-born black woman who was given up for adoption as a child, has chronicled her journey in a memoir due out in the United States in April »

Cinematographers pick the best-shot films of all time

4 February 2015 12:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stumbling across that list of best-edited films yesterday had me assuming that there might be other nuggets like that out there, and sure enough, there is American Cinematographer's poll of the American Society of Cinematographers membership for the best-shot films ever, which I do recall hearing about at the time. But they did things a little differently. Basically, in 1998, cinematographers were asked for their top picks in two eras: films from 1894-1949 (or the dawn of cinema through the classic era), and then 1950-1997, for a top 50 in each case. Then they followed up 10 years later with another poll focused on the films between 1998 and 2008. Unlike the editors' list, though, ties run absolutely rampant here and allow for way more than 50 films in each era to be cited. I'd love to see what these lists would look like combined, however. I imagine "Citizen Kane," which was on top of the 1894-1949 list, »

Editors Guild Selects 75 Best Edited Films of All Time

Now this is a list that could result in a lot of fascinating dissection and thanks to HitFix it comes to our attention almost three years after it was originally released back in 2012, celebrating the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 75th anniversary. Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing. In an accompanying article we get the particulars concerning what films were eligible and how films were to be considered: In our Jan-feb 12 issue, we asked Guild members to vote on what they consider to be the Best Edited Films of all time. Any feature-length film from any country in the world was eligible. And by "Best Edited," we explained, we didn't just mean picture; sound, music and mixing were to be considered as well. »

Mark Kermode interview: critics, star ratings, Joe Cornish, PR

28 January 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Kermode on modern film criticism, critics of his own work, Michael Bay, Jason Statham and male oil wrestling.

The last time we spoke to Mark Kermode, he'd just launched his book about the state of movie criticism, Hatchet Job. Since then, he's embarked on a nationwide tour with the book, and undertaken dozens of Q&As with audiences about it.

And that, as Hatchet Job continues to thrive in paperback, is where we started...

I spoke to you just as you launched Hatchet Job, and in your words, since then you've "toured the arse off it". You've done Q&As with the people who've read your book, and who you wrote it for.

So what have you learned about what audiences feel regarding film critics, and where they sit in the world?

I think the most important thing was when I started writing it, I was, as you know, »

Survivors Return to Auschwitz for 70th Anniversary of Liberation

They returned, wearing their blue and white stripes as badges of courage. And resilience. And resolve. Survivors of the Nazis' Auschwitz concentration camp returned Tuesday to the complex in Oswiecim, Poland, to mark the 70th anniversary of their liberation by the Soviet army at the end of World War II. Many came with the notorious stripes of their former death-camp prison uniforms fashioned into scarves, or, like Miroslaw Celka, 89, into a sash bearing his former prisoner number. The presidents of Germany and France, along with prominent activists like Steven Spielberg, who directed the 1993 Holocaust film Schindler's List, joined some 300 survivors »
