'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name. The Venice Film Festival is surely no exception, especially as it's the year's final internationally renowned European movie fest, held shortly before the fall – i.e., awards – movie season begins. Well, one work by a top Hollywood name will no longer be available at Venice: The Audition, a short film directed by and featuring veteran Martin Scorsese, has been pulled out. "We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time," festival organizers said in a statement earlier today, Sat., Aug. 29, '15.

21 August 2015 1:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three decades after serving as president of the Screen Actors Guild, Ed Asner has won a SAG-AFTRA national board seat as part of the Membership First slate.

The 85-year-old Asner received the third-highest number of votes of 44 candidates for the national board from Los Angeles region members after SAG-aftra President Ken Howard and Patricia Richardson. Howard headed the moderate Unite For Strength slate and was re-elected president with 53% of the vote over Richardson, who headed the self-styled progressive Membership First slate.

Three other Membership First candidates — three-time Oscar nominee Diane Ladd, Frances Fisher and strategist David Jolliffe — won national board seats while Howard’s allies took the remaining 13 open seats for the 70-member board.

Asner served as SAG president from 1981 to 1985; Fisher is best known for starring in “Titanic” and Ladd received Oscar nominations for “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” “Rambling Rose” and “Wild at Heart.”

Ladd received the fourth-highest number of votes, »

Should cinemas have switched to digital?

20 August 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Digital projection is meaning cleaner and more stable pictures on the big screen.

Have you noticed anything different in the past few years of visiting your local multiplex? No more Harry Potter films every year mainly, but more fundamentally than that – does the screen look cleaner and more stable than usual? None of the scratches and jitter that you always used to see?

You’re witnessing the results of cinema's digital switchover, just another step our lives have taken from the analogue into the digital world. It’s maybe something many haven’t thought about too much, as they sit back, munch popcorn and drink gallons of Fanta while watching dozens of blockbusters.

But considering how many people are affected by it and its impact on how cinemas are run, maybe we should be asking: what’s wrong with this picture?

Since the film-digital debate is kind of technical, just »

The BFI London Film Festival (Oct 7-18) has announced that its Archive Gala will be a new restoration of Anthony Asquith’s Shooting Stars.

The restoration by the BFI National Archive will receive its world premiere on Oct 16 with a new live score by John Altman, the BAFTA and Emmy award-winning composer whose work includes Titanic and Goldeneye. The score has been written for a 12 piece ensemble playing multiple instruments.

Shooting Stars, first released in 1928, was Asquith’s first film as co-director and scriptwriter and is a drama set behind the scenes at a film studio.

Annette Benson (Mae Feather) and Brian Aherne (Julian Gordon) play two mis-matched, married stars and Donald Calthrop (Andy Wilkes) a Chaplin-esque star at the same studio, with whom Mae becomes romantically involved.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Finest Roles

18 August 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This year marks over 25 years since Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio made his acting debut. As a fresh faced, ambitious teen, DiCaprio appeared in several family soap operas in the early 1990s that had decent runs, including Parenthood and Growing Pains. A quarter of a century later and two Golden Globe wins for Best Actor (The Wolf of Wall Street in 2014 and The Aviator in 2005), DiCaprio has arguably become one of the most recognizable faces in the world, albeit sadly without that coveted Oscar win. Sealing his fate as a global heartthrob in age-old romantic drama Romeo + Juliet in 1996, then following it up next year with the blockbuster Titanic, Leo subsequently shot to stardom and worked with some of cinema’s finest directors, including Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino. Although a hard list to make given his impressive CV, here we take a look back some of his most remarkable roles. »

18 August 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

She's cried wolf about leaving The Only Way Is Essex before - and, on occasion, cried literally on the show - but Gemma Collins has now confirmed she's quitting Towie for good after four solid years.

Well, we weren't going to let The Gc go without a fitting send-off. Here's our celebration of her best bits - Towie just won't be the same again.

1. Gemma's designer vagina

"It's like a new penny," Bobby Norris enthuses over his friend Gemma's new designer vagina - a compliment which she gladly accepts, proudly declaring: "I'm mega confident because I know I've got a designer vagina... I didn't tell you this but it cost me £2,000."

As she's wincing while being waxed to within an inch of her life, Gemma then calls poor old Elliott Wright, who's trying to enjoy a drink and a round of pool as she trumpets: "Elliott, this is »

Is Colin Trevorrow the right choice to direct Star Wars Episode 9?

17 August 2015 3:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fresh off the success of Jurassic World, director Colin Trevorrow has been confirmed as director for Star Wars Episode 9.

The filmmaker's rise has been a meteoric one. Three years ago he made his feature debut with low-budget indie Safety Not Guaranteed before taking on the long-in-the-works Jurassic Park sequel.

The Chris Pratt-led Jurassic World stormed the box office this summer and has made a staggering $1.6 billion worldwide. Trevorrow is now the third most successful director in the all-time rankings behind James Cameron juggernauts Avatar and Titanic.

Reaction to Trevorrow's hiring has been decidedly mixed - take a look at a brief overview below...

So that guy who made that bad dinosaur movie is making a Star Wars movie too. http://t.co/r4vt07l60i

Watch: Celebrate James Cameron's Cinema Of Flesh & Metal With This Supercut Tribute

14 August 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

James Cameron might not be the most prolific of the kings of big screen spectacle, but his filmography is certainly among the highest grossing of all time. Heck, as of right now, the top two highest grossing films at the domestic box office (discounting inflation) are his. “Avatar” remains firmly secure in the number one spot with $760.5M, a full $100M more than his second place “Titanic.” (Because it’s always fun to look at numbers, if you adjust for inflation, “Avatar” drops to 14th, while “Titanic” actually surges ahead of it, coming in at fifth.) A new four-minute supercut from Vimeo user Martin Kessler showcases why Cameron’s films are so successful, a collective achievement made doubly impressive by the fact that the writer-director has only eight narrative features under his belt, dating way back to “Piranha Part Two: The Spawning” in 1981 (and who could forget that?).

Bob Hoskins' Wolverine, Will Smith's Superman and the other superhero films that might have been

9 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Over the last week, it looked like the Lynchian fever dream of a Gambit film might not come to pass, with star (and producer) Channing Tatum apparently on the brink of exiting the X-Men spinoff.

It turns out Tatum is still on board, but the incident got us thinking of some other superhero castings that nearly were but never will be:

(Nb Please take it as read that Jude Law was considered for all of these roles.)

Wolverine

Hugh Jackman has become so synonymous with the iconic X-Man that it's strange to think of anyone else taking on the role (even if they inevitably will). But before he had been cast, Russell Crowe was considered to play the angry Canadian mutant, and is credited with directing Bryan Singer's attention towards his fellow Aussie.

A-list hopeful Dougray Scott came even closer, and was actually cast in the role before shooting on Mission: Impossible 2 overran, »

According to our sister site Deadline, Antoine Fuqua — who directed the 2001 feature film — has teamed with producer Jerry Bruckheimer to develop a TV series based on the crime thriller, which starred Ethan Hawke as a Los Angeles narcotics officer who, on his first day, goes on a 24-hour training course with a rogue detective (Denzel Washington).

Natalie Portman is tired of the Hollywood pay gap: "There is an outrageous discrepancy between men and women"

5 August 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Natalie Portman is tired of the massive Hollywood pay gap between men and women.

Portman spoke to Marie Claire about inequality that actresses often face, even when they're bigger stars than their male counterparts.

"There is an outrageous discrepancy between men and women in Hollywood," Portman explained. "Titanic is a huge hit and Leonardo DiCaprio immediately goes to $20m (£12.6m) per movie and Kate Winslet doesn't.

"But that feels totally like it's changing. Young women like Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart – they're the stars now. I don't even know who the guys are who are their age."

Portman is now a Hollywood veteran at the age of 34, and is turning her talents to directing the film version of Amos Oz's novel A Tale of Love and Darkness.

"I don't get panicky, I know the waves – sometimes it's quiet, sometimes it's wild," she explained. "I feel like I've done so much, »
