American Moviegoers See a Pro-Choice Bias in Hollywood (Poll)

16 June 2017 3:44 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Is Hollywood pushing a pro-choice agenda? Americans seem to think so.

Sure, movies like The Cider House Rules, Dirty Dancing and Fast Times at Ridgemont High make a strong case for legalized abortion, but pro-life groups have praised the likes of Arrival, Juno and even the raunchy comedy Knocked Up — all movies where lead female characters choose to give birth rather than abort.

When push comes to shove, though, moviegoers see more pro-choice messages in films than they do pro-life messages, according to a poll made public for the first time Friday.

The scientific poll, conducted by Barna Group, indicates »

Why Quentin Tarantino Producer Richard Gladstein Ditched Indie Film to Run the AFI Conservatory

5 May 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The American Film Institute Conservatory has a new dean in producer Richard Gladstein, and he shamelessly chased down the job.

Gladstein — president of Film Colony, producer of Best Picture Oscar nominees “Finding Neverland” and “The Cider House Rules,” as well as a bevy of Quentin Tarantino movies — comes to a Los Feliz hillside campus that is still bruised after two fractious years under the last dean, Jan Schuette, who last November agreed to step down at the end of June.

No one is more surprised than Gladstein at how much he wanted the gig. He put in a long stint with Harvey Weinstein at Miramax Films, where he started as head of production in 1993. “Oddly it was the same day that Disney bought the company,” he said. “So my first-day press conference with Jeffrey Katzenberg was my initiation. The AFI feels akin to that. The place is bursting with creativity, »

Ten Years Later, ‘The Hoax’ is Even More Timely in the Trump Era

20 April 2017 4:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

One of the most audacious cons in history is aided by the certainty that no one would tell a lie so obvious.

A film about an outrageous hoax, based on a true story as told in a book written by the perpetrator of said hoax. With so many layers of reality between the actual events and their onscreen translation, should we assume everything in 2007’s The Hoax is accurate?

Perhaps the more important question is: does it matter?

My feeling is that a film’s first prerogative is to entertain. In any adaptation (whether from real life or another medium of fiction) concessions will be made to the necessity of visual drama. When real life is the model, I’m less concerned with accuracy so long as the film is never presented as evidence of the real events. (In other words, JFK is great drama. You can say it’s a great movie, but »

The Boss Baby Repeats Box Office Win with $26.3M

9 April 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a successful first weekend at the box office, The Boss Baby, an animated comedy from DreamWorks Animation, had no trouble repeating at the box office. The hit movie went up against Warner Bros.' comedy remake Going in Style, Sony's animated adventure Smurfs: The Lost Village and PureFlix's faith-based drama The Case For Christ. None of these new releases stood a chance, with The Boss Baby repeating atop the box office with $26.3 million, followed closely by Disney's blockbuster Beauty and the Beast with $25 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Smurfs: The Lost Village, Sony's new fully animated movie in the beloved franchise, opened in 3,610 theaters, debuting in third place with $14 million for a meager $3,882 per-screen average. Going in Style debuted in 3,061 theaters in fourth place with $12.5 million with a $4,084 per-screen average, while The Case for Christ opened in 10th place with $3.9 million. Smurfs: The Lost Village and Going In Style weren't critically acclaimed, »

Can Smurfs Knock Boss Baby Off the Top of the Box Office?

4 April 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Traditionally, April has never been one of the biggest months to open a movie, but that all changed a few years ago when the Fast & Furious franchise started finding success in the spring months. The next installment in that high-octane franchise, The Fate of the Furious, doesn't hit theaters until April 14, but this weekend, moviegoers will have three new films arriving in wide release, Sony's animated adventure Smurfs: The Lost Village, Warner Bros.' comedy remake Going In Style and PureFlix's The Case For Christ. None of these will (probably) be able to stop last weekend's winner, The Boss Baby, which will likely repeat atop the box office with $25.2 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Smurfs: The Lost Village, which marks the franchise's return to fully animated movies, instead of live-action/CGI hybrids, is expected to open in roughly 3,400 theaters, with Going in Style estimated to open in 3,000 theaters, while »

Oscar Political Moments: A Timeline of the Memorable Sacrifices, Protests, and Speeches Throughout The Telecast’s History

26 February 2017 8:06 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Filmmakers and stars have often taken a political stance by choosing which projects to make. But when the Academy Awards ceremony began in 1929 to honor the best in film, this created a more public way to demonstrate opinions about the state of the world, the government or a cause.

Not everyone has taken this opportunity though, except for maybe wearing the odd ribbon to support awareness or using their attendance (or lack thereof) to show solidarity. Those blessed by winning a coveted statuette, however, can use their actual acceptance speech as a platform to speak out. Although the awards started being televised in 1953, it took until the 1970s until winners began to really take advantage of having a massive audience for their views. And at times, even the Academy itself got political. »

John Irving attacks 'intolerant' Trump in defence of political awards speeches

20 February 2017 10:28 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Writer of The Cider House Rules laments new president’s threat to Lgbt and abortion rights, and says winners at next weekend’s Oscars should be free to protest

Oscar-winning novelist John Irving has taken aim at Donald Trump over the latter’s threat to Lgbt and abortion rights as well as religious-based bigotry.

Irving, who won a best adapted screenplay Oscar in 2000 for the adaptation of his own novel The Cider House Rules, has contributed an essay to the Hollywood Reporter in which he considered the “protocol” over whether or not award winners should make explicitly political speeches.

Oscar Winner John Irving Urges Hollywood to Get Political With "Outright Bias" in Acceptance Speeches (Guest Column)

20 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

At the 2000 Oscars, my acceptance speech (for the screenplay of The Cider House Rules) was less than one minute long; for the most part, I thanked my wife and children and my director, Lasse Hallstrom. I began my speech by thanking "the Academy for this honor to a film on the abortion subject and Miramax for having the courage to make this movie in the first place." I ended by thanking "everyone at Planned Parenthood" — and what was called, at the time, the National Abortion Rights Action League. There was applause.

Seventeen years ago, was it Oscar protocol »

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

How Does ‘Jackie’ Composer Micachu Fit Into the Brief History of Women in the Best Original Score Category?

Micachu (Courtesy: Daniel Bergeron Photography)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

When it comes to the world of composing for films, it’s most definitely a man’s world — but this year there’s one woman who is a part of the conversation: Mica Levi, a.k.a. Micachu. Let’s get to know the 29-year-old talent that is garnering Oscar attention this year for working on Jackie and see where this talent fits into Academy Awards history.

Micachu, the daughter of two musicians who began writing and playing music at the age of four, is an English multihyphenate — singer, songwriter, composer, and producer — best known for creating experimental music in the band Micachu & The Shapes. The Surrey native has released six mixtapes, six albums (two of which were soundtracks — more on those later), and, while at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, even wrote an orchestral piece for the London Philharmonic Orchestra »
