10 Things You Didn’t Know About Ralph Fiennes

28 May 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jonathan Short/AP

Known by the younger generation for his role as Voldemort in the Harry Potter film series, Ralph Fiennes has been gracing our stages and our screens since the mid-eighties. He was trained in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, achieved prominence with the Royal Shakespeare Company, and first made a name in films with his role of Amon Goeth in Steven Spielberg’s Schlindler’s List in 1993. And since then he’s starred in a wide variety of films, with major pictures including the James Bond Series (starring as M), The Constant Gardener, The English Patient, and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. 

Fiennes’ film work has ranged from thrillers (Spider) to animated Biblical epic (The Prince Of Egypt) to camp nostalgia (The Avengers) to romantic comedy (Maid in Manhattan) to historical drama (Sunshine). Oh – and in 2011, Fiennes also made his directorial debut with his film »

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Little Prince’

22 May 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Any animated feature screening in Cannes in the wake of Pixar’s universally adored “Inside Out” was bound to seem like an anticlimax. And when the movie in question happens to be an adaptation of one of the most beloved children’s novels of all time, the potential for disappointment looms especially large. But to the sure relief of armchair aviators everywhere, director Mark Osborne’s “The Little Prince” turns out to be a respectful, lovingly reimagined take on Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s classic 1943 tale, which adds all manner of narrative bells and whistles to the author’s slender, lyrical story of friendship between a pilot and a mysterious extraterrestrial voyager, but stays true to its timeless depiction of childhood wonderment at odds with grown-up disillusionment. Independently made (on a reported $80 million budget) by French producer Dimitri Rassam, “The Little Prince” may lack the fast pace and high-concept storytelling of »

How 'Mad Max: Fury Road' lured Oscar winner John Seale back behind the camera

11 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

John Seale was retired. Then George Miller dangled a "Mad Max" movie in front of his face and, well, how can an Aussie say no? The 40-year veteran jumped right into the maelstrom Miller and his team were conjuring in the desert of west Africa and, along with killer second unit teams, captured one of the most innervating experiences of the year in "Mad Max: Fury Road." Oh, and he turned 70 years old while doing all of this. Seale won an Oscar for "The English Patient," the first of a three-film collaboration with the late Anthony Minghella. He also partnered up with Peter Weir on a trio of projects ("Witness," "The Mosquito Coast" and "Dead Poets Society") and he's worked with many great filmmakers besides, from Sydney Pollack to Ron Howard, Rob Reiner to Wolfgang Petersen. In addition to the win, he has three more Oscar nominations to his credit and I must say, »

A Perfect Shot: John Seale on the piano reflection from 'The Talented Mr. Ripley'

7 May 2015 6:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Before Oscar-winning cinematographer John Seale shuffled off to retirement, only to be lured back into the fray by director George Miller for the virtuoso stylings of "Mad Max: Fury Road," he clocked a lot of hours working with filmmaker Anthony Minghella. The two collaborated on three major productions: 1996's "The English Patient," 1999's "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and 2003's "Cold Mountain." The 1999 entry is, full stop, a masterpiece of modern cinema. With shades of latter-day Hitchcock pulsing through a narrative wound uncomfortably tight, "The Talented Mr. Ripley" might be the finest work Minghella, who passed away in 2008, ever committed to the screen. It features more than just evocative, but rather outright palpable atmosphere and a detailed sense of place. Minghella coaxed incredibly layered performances out of actors like Matt Damon, Jude Law (Oscar nominated for his work), Philip Seymour Hoffman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett and, as ever, told the story visually in captivating ways. »

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. »

New Mad Max: Fury Road Images Sell Even More Madness Than Trailers

5 May 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The summer is here, and with the arrival of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Jurassic World right around the corner, the heat is really kicking up. Still, no movie has had me as excited as Mad Max: Fury Road.

The trailers have been insane, and no movie in years has sold me so quickly with the theory of wild, adrenaline-rush like this one.

You’ve seen plenty in the trailers to get your mind racing, but the new set of images really give you a lot of information (I think) about how cool this really might be.

Just take a look at this one –

Sure, you’ve seen the idea in the trailer, but just the sheer insanity of everything in this image. If this movie doesn’t turn out to be the most fun of the year, that in itself will be a feat.

Juliette Binoche to Play Nobel Prize Winner Pearl S. Buck in Biopic (Exclusive)

Juliette Binoche will star in “Pearl,” based on the life of Nobel Prize winner Pearl S. Buck along with Leehom Wang (“Forever Young”) and Jing Tian (“Great Wall”).

Buck spent most of her life in China, first as a missionary and later as a novelist who started writing to support her mentally challenged daughter in a special school. The story will take place following the Nanking Incident in 1927, which launched the struggle known as the »

Watch the George Miller Featurette for Mad Max: Fury Road

2 May 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"You're not really in a movie, you're in George's head." In a new featurette from Warner Bros., Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, and other members of the cast and crew of Mad Max: Fury Road reflect on what it was like to be a part of the latest grand vision from filmmaker George Miller.

Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa.

'Mad Max' director George Miller says he's still learning how to make films

30 April 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Eager online press got a look at George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" Wednesday night in Los Angeles, with the filmmaker on hand to discuss his return to the world of his visionary debut with fellow director Edgar Wright. The unrelenting, cacophonous vehicular gumbo, which is all set to be unleashed on unsuspecting attendees of next month's Cannes Film Festival, hardly feels like the product of a 70-year-old man. And indeed, Miller's enthusiasm for discussing the work was as palpable as that pulsing through every innervating moment of the film itself. "I thought I was done on the first one," Miller said of the original film. "Then the second one came along and it was a way to try it again and do something better. I was just learning how to make films. I'm still learning how to make films. But these things stay in the back of your »
