Armie Hammer & Geoffrey Rush Shine In First ‘Final Portrait’ UK Trailer

7 July 2017 4:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Vertigo Films have delivered the very first UK trailer for their upcoming release Final Portrait. Armie Hammer and Geoffrey Rush lead the cast of the upcoming film, which is written and directed by Stanley Tucci.

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees.

So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. Final Portrait is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is »

'Awards Chatter' Podcast — Geoffrey Rush ('Genius')

26 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

"In Australia, people will call a lemon meringue pie 'genius,' you know," cracks Australian actor Geoffrey Rush — who currently can be seen playing Albert Einstein in National Geographic's 10-part limited series Genius, the network's first foray into scripted entertainment — as we sit down at New York's iconic Empire Hotel to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter's 'Awards Chatter' podcast. "But," continues the 65-year-old winner of an Oscar (1996's Shine), Emmy (2004's The Life and Death of Peter Sellers) and Tony (2009's Exit the King), "Einstein?

Genius review – Geoffrey Rush impresses as an unexpectedly racy Albert Einstein

23 April 2017 8:17 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

National Geographic, in its first scripted TV drama, gives the physicist’s life sassy, whip-smart on-screen treatment

The first time we catch a glimpse of Geoffrey Rush as Albert Einstein in Genius – National Geographic’s inaugural foray into scripted drama – the larger-than-life theoretical physicist is in the middle of something. A man celebrated for his extraordinary mind is busy stimulating a different part of his body: his pants are around his ankles and, in the throes of passion, his lover Betty (Charity Wakefield) is pressed against a blackboard strewn with chalk-drawn calculations.

Wowza. I wasn’t expecting Einstein After Dark. It’s a racy introduction to another, perhaps predictably excellent performance from Rush, who since his breakthrough in 1996’s Shine as the tormented pianist David Helfgott, has been attracted to eccentric genius characters like a moth to the light.

Why ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Is the Most Anticipated Screening of the Tribeca Film Festival

17 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You can’t accuse the Tribeca Film Festival (April 19-30) of bandwagon jumping: Back in 2005, it screened the series finale of “Friends” outdoors on a Hudson pier for rapturous fans. Today, TV is a fait d’accompli as Tribeca expands its second annual TV program to 15 shows and five series. Golden-age TV draws viewers, Hollywood filmmakers, and a wider audience.

Last year, the TV program included world premieres of “The Night Of” (HBO, from Oscar-winning executive producer Steve Zaillian), “The Night Manager” (AMC, directed by Oscar-winning Susanne Bier), and “O.J.: Made in America” (Espn, directed by eventual Oscar-winner Ezra Edelman).

Biggest Oscar Moments of All Time: Cuba Gooding Jr. Loves Everyone at the 1997 Academy Awards

24 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cuba Gooding Jr. was feeling the love at the 69th Academy Awards in 1997. And for good reason! The then 29-year-old walked away with the Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his role in Jerry Maguire, beating Fargo's William H. Macy, Shine's Armin Mueller-Stahl, Primal Fear's Edward Norton and Ghosts of Mississippi's James Woods. From the moment presenter Mira Sorvino announced his name live from inside the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Center, it was clear Gooding would be accepting the award on his own terms. And while he may not have had the longest speech of all time, he did have the longest speech over the show's exit music. After hugging Cruise on his way to the stage, an »

Managing Editor

There was always a chance for the best picture category at the 2017 Academy Awards to feature solid representation for female producers and, with the nominations official, the numbers are in. Turns out there are five of the nine films in this year’s top category with women behind it — but how does that stand up to the rest of Oscar history?

As mentioned above, there are five out of the total nine films in the best picture category this year that took some girl power to get made. There’s Hell or High Water (Carla Hacken and Julie Yorn), Hidden Figures (Donna Gigliotti and Jenno Topping), Lion (Angie Fielder), Manchester by the Sea (Kimberly Steward and Lauren Beck), and finally Moonlight (Adele Romanski and Dede Gardner). This leaves out Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, and La La Land as »
