Michelle Pfeiffer Opens Up About Her Social Anxiety, Admits She First Found Fame 'Terrifying'
While she has graced numerous red carpets over the course of her career, Michelle Pfeiffer says social situations still don't always come easy for her.

In an interview with her Murder on the Orient Express co-star, Olivia Colman, for Net-a-Porter's The Edit magazine, Pfeiffer admits that she's much more at ease when she's by herself than with a group of people.

"I need to have my own private time and space to gather myself," she confides. "I can sit for hours just doing nothing, by myself."

Karlovy Vary Film Festival Honors Talent Working in Front of and Behind the Camera

Karlovy Vary Film Festival Honors Talent Working in Front of and Behind the Camera
Casey Affleck

President’s Award

An Academy Award-winner for his role in “Manchester by the Sea” (2016), Affleck will receive his kudo prior to a screening of “A Ghost Story,” in which he stars. Affleck, along with helmer-writer David Lowery, will introduce the film. Affleck starred in Lowery’s debut film “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” (2013) and recently completed production on Lowery’s “The Old Man and the Gun.”

Like his older brother, multi-hyphenate Ben, Casey Affleck has a parallel career as a writer-producer-director. He is in post on his second feature as a helmer-writer, “The Light of My Life,” in which he also stars.

James Newton Howard

Crystal Globe

American composer and songwriter Howard will conduct the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in a performance of his music for the film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” in front of Hotel Thermal on June 30, during the fest’s opening. Howard is currently preparing for his first live concert tour, a celebration of career highlights, with music, spoken word and video, that will visit 20 European cities.

Howard has composed music for more than 120 films, including Academy Award-nominated scores for “Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Village,” “The Fugitive,” “The Prince of Tides” and “My Best Friend’s Wedding” — not to mention Oscar-nominated songs for “Junior” and “One Fine Day.”

In addition to his contributions to film and television music, the Emmy- and Grammy-winning Howard has also composed concert pieces for the Pacific Symphony.

Paul Laverty

Crystal Globe

Laverty wrote the scripts for 12 features and two short films directed by Ken Loach, beginning with “Carla’s Song” (1996). Their most recent collaboration, “I, Daniel Blake” (2016), won the Palme d’Or at Cannes.

Laverty wrote the screenplay for Loach’s first Palme d’Or winner, “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” (2006). His credits with Loach include “My Name Is Joe,” (1998), a Cannes lead actor-winner for Peter Mullan and Cannes screenplay winner “Sweet Sixteen” (2002).

He also writes screenplays for his partner, the Spanish director and actress Icíar Bollaín.

Ken Loach

Crystal Globe

An activist as well as one of Britain’s most celebrated directors, Loach worked briefly in theater before starting as a director for BBC television in the early 1960s. There, he helmed ground-breaking dramas such as “Up the Junction” and “Cathy Come Home.” The impact of the latter led to a change in Britain’s homeless laws. Acclaimed early features such as “Poor Cow” (1967) and “Kes” (1969) brought his trademarks of social realism and compassion to the big screen.

Even though Loach’s 50-plus-year career includes a dark period when he couldn’t get a project off the ground and he directed commercials to support his family, he has been extraordinarily prolific. Undoubtedly, this is due in part to his on-going collaboration with producer Rebecca O’Brien and long-term partnerships with screenwriters including Barry Hines, Jim Allen and perhaps most fruitfully, Paul Laverty. Loach is also known for introducing exciting new acting talents.

Jeremy Renner

President’s Award

Actor, producer, musician and two-time Oscar-nominee Renner will receive his kudo at the fest’s closing gala on July 8. Renner will also introduce the crime thriller “Wind River,” directed by Taylor Sheridan.

Known for his intensity and ability to fully embody the characters he portrays, Renner received early critical acclaim as a serial killer in “Dahmer” (2002). He later established himself through roles in action and war movies, garnering an Oscar nomination for lead actor in Kathryn Bigelow’s war tale “The Hurt Locker” (2008). A supporting actor nom followed two years later for Ben Affleck’s bank heist drama “The Town” (2010).

Renner’s extensive filmography balances big-budget blockbusters such as “The Avengers” and “Mission: Impossible” series with more complex roles in “American Hustle” and “Arrival.”

In 2012, he formed the production company The Combine, with partner Don Handfield, to create, develop and produce high-quality, character-driven content for mainstream audiences.

Uma Thurman

President’s Award

The sensual, statuesque American actress and producer Uma Thurman will receive her honor on June 30, during the fest’s opening night. An Oscar-nominee for Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” (1994), Thurman’s memorable acting career is notable for her collaboration with iconic helmers.

Thurman was only a teenager when she made an impact in Stephen Frears’ “Dangerous Liaisons” (1988) and Terry Gilliam’s surreal “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” (1988). However, the part of Mia Wallace in Tarantino’s sensational “Pulp Fiction” marked a turning point, garnering her numerous awards and nominations. Another successful Tarantino collaboration followed nearly a decade later with the cult double-header: “Kill Bill: Vols. 1 and 2” (2003, 2004). She received two Golden Globe nominations for her role as The Bride.

Thurman ultimately nabbed a Golden Globe for for her role in Mira Nair’s made-for-tv feature “Hysterical Blindness” (2002). She produced “The Accidental Husband” (2008) and the forthcoming “Girl Soldier.”

Václav Vorlíček

President’s Award

Renowned for his work for younger audiences, director-writer Vorlíček, 87, will receive an honor for his artistic contribution to Czech film.

Vorlíček teamed with writer and director Miloš Macourek, to form an original creative partnership responsible for a distinctive chapter in the development of Czech film. Their poetic vision, in which real life comes up against elements of fantasy, remains unique to this day.

Prime examples of Vorlíček and Macourek’s work include the “comic book” comedy “Who Wants to Kill Jessie?” (1966); the sci-fi comedy “You Are a Widow, Sir!” (1970).

Another comedy that employs fairytale motifs in contemporary Prague titled “How to Drown Dr. Mracek, the Lawyer” (1974); the TV series “Arabela” (1979-80); and “Rumburak” (1985).

Vorlíček is also known for his fairytale films, especially the comedy “The Girl on the Broomstick” (1971) and “Three Wishes for Cinderella” (1973), now a perennially popular Christmas classic on Czech television.

The troubled production of DreamWorks’ first film

Simon Brew Jun 14, 2017

DreamWorks launched in a blaze of publicity – but its first film, The Peacemaker, was beset by problems…

Not since United Artists had launched in the 1930s had Hollywood seen anything quite like it. Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg – a trio with a lot of money and a big contacts book between them – came together to launch the first new studio in a generation. It was called DreamWorks Skg, and it was not short on ambition.

Katzenberg would be heading up its animation arm, and soon got to work, with the likes of Antz and The Prince Of Egypt getting things going. But on the live action side, the assumption that Spielberg would exclusively make his films for the studio quickly proved false. Post-the formation of DreamWorks, his first movie as director would instead be The Lost World: Jurassic Park for Universal. Only then would he

Wonder Woman 2 confirmed, The Flash director update, Justice League reshoot rumours and more – Daily News Roundup

Return Of The Amazon

Although the estimates for the film were quite low and the tracking is even lower, Warner Bros. and DC seem very committed to a Wonder Woman franchise, with Dceu stalwart Zack Snyder confirming that a sequel is in active development. He also noted that Joss Whedon’s Batgirl will come first though. Read more here.

Og Batgirl

Speaking of Batgirl, and Whedon’s adaptation won’t be the first of the character on the big screen. Back in the summer of 1997, Alicia Silverstone played Barbra Gordon in the comic book bomb Batman & Robin, and wasn’t exactly praised for her performance. In a new interview however, the Clueless star has said she would do much better if given a second chance. “It would be fun to tackle it again,” she said. “Because I’m older and my acting is better. I know I would bring so much more to it.

Dwayne Johnson says Black Adam will battle Superman, wants Armie Hammer to play Shazam

With everyone’s attention on DC’s Wonder Woman and Justice League, its easy to forget some of the other plans in the DC Extended Universe post-Justice League. Two of those movies will be based upon Shazam, with one focusing on the hero and the other the villainous Black Adam, played by Dwayne Johnson.

In an interview with Fandango, Johnson offered a little information on the Black Adam film and even teased a confrontation between him and Henry Cavill’s Superman.

“It’s definitely going to happen, sure,” he said about Black Adam. “We’ve had great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC. It’s an exciting time right now for everyone at DC because they are in a process now where they are building out their DC universe really nicely. We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal, in

Black Adam may show up sooner than expected in the Dceu

Mike Cecchini May 17, 2017

Dwayne Johnson is teasing a surprise for Shazam fans: there are plans for Black Adam before his solo movie...

At this point, I can't even remember a time when Dwayne Johnson wasn't attached to play Black Adam in a DC Extended Universe movie. Once upon a time he may have played the heroic title role in Shazam, before deciding on Black Adam, and then it was decided that in addition to the Shazam movie, we'd also get Johnson starring in a Black Adam solo film.

Whenever Dwayne Johnson is on the promotional trail for one of his movies (which is often, because he is always working), he offers some updates about playing Black Adam, with or without the Shazam movie. So there's still plenty of talk, but no sign of a release date Black Adam, and we still haven't caught so much as a glimpse of the

Black Adam Will Get a Surprise Dceu Introduction, Superman Fight Promised

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was cast as the villain Black Adam in the Shazam movie several years ago. For a very long time there was almost no movement on the project, but now things seem to be heading in the direction of actually getting Black Adam on the big screen fairly soon. In fact, The Rock is now teasing that the DC Comics villain will be making a surprise appearance in a DC Extended Universe movie before the Black Adam solo movie or Shazam!

The actor recently spoke with Fandango in order to promote his upcoming R-rated Baywatch movie. During the course of the conversation, Dwayne Johnson was asked about Black Adam and he revealed that he and the folks at DC have a surprise in store, but he had to remain a bit secretive about it.

Dwayne Johnson teases the Fast & Furious spin-off with Jason Statham

We reported late on Friday that Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are to go head to head in a spin-off from the Fast & Furious movies, and now the actor has teased the forthcoming film via his highly-followed Instagram account.

His message was posted with a photo celebrating Fast and Furious 8‘s (aka The Fate Of The Furious) two-week reign at the top of the box-office.

“A very very special shout out to a certain bald-headed, English tea drinkin’, crumpets eatin’, God Save The Queen singin’ suuuuuum bitch, Jason Statham. One fine day, we will give the audience what they want and fight. And it will be the greatest fight in the history of movies. We will then drink like brothers as you nurse your wounds, because I’m gonna knock your teeth so far down your throat, you’re gonna have to stick a toothbrush up your ass to brush ’em.

Fast & Furious Spinoff: Dwayne Johnson says he and Jason Statham will deliver “the greatest fight in the history of movies”

Although reviews for The Fate of the Furious have been mixed leading toward positive, one unanimously agreed upon high point is the camaraderie and banter between the characters of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. They’re so good that apparently, Vin Diesel got a post-credits scene centered on the two cut from the final version of the film, although that didn’t prevent Universal from confirming a spinoff film with the two action stars.

Either way, we will be getting to eventually see the two duke it out one epic fight, as towards the end of an Instagram post thanking those responsible for the success of The Fate of the Furious, Johnson stated: “And finally, a very very special shout out to a certain bald headed, English tea drinkin’, crumpets eatin’, God Save The Queen singin’ suuuuuum bitch, Jason Statham.
