Win tickets to One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest at the BFI Southbank

12 April 2017 1:41 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Competitions

On 22 April, the incomparable Jack Nicholson will reach 80. In celebration of this milestone birthday, the BFI is bringing the magnificent 1975 tragicomedy in which he starred, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, back to big screens across the UK on 14 April 2017. We are giving three lucky winners a pair of tickets to a BFI Southbank screening of the film between 20 and 24 April 2017

Nicholson’s unforgettable performance as the ingenious, heroic free spirit Rp ‘Mac’ McMurphy, who leads an uprising in the men’s ward of a mental hospital run by callous Nurse Rached (Louise Fletcher), won him his first Best Actor Oscar®.

Adapted from Ken Kesey’s best-selling 1962 novel, directed by Miloš Forman (Amadeus, Man on the Moon) and produced by Saul Zaentz (Amadeus, The English Patient) and Michael Douglas (his first producer role), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was only the second film ever to »

Film Review: ‘Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo’

11 April 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scheduled to blast off April 14 into theatrical and digital orbits, “Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo” likely will be referred to by some wags as “Not-So-Hidden Figures,” given its focus on the mostly white and entirely male teams of mission controllers and support crews that were frequently visible (on TV and in newsreels) yet largely anonymous during the early days of the U.S. manned-spaceflight program. But the recent box office success of director Theodore Melfi’s compelling drama about contributions by African-American women to the space program may boost mainstream interest in this celebratory documentary, which enthralls with a more traditional but equally absorbing stories-behind-the-story narrative.

The film is a worthy follow-up by producers Keith Haviland and Gareth Dodds to “The Last Man on the Moon,” their exceptional 2014 biographical portrait of Gene Cernan, who flew three times in space and twice to the moon during his »

Johnny Depp Will Play ‘King of the Jungle’ For ‘I Love You Phillip, Morris’ Duo

29 March 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Scott Alexander and Larry Krzyzewski‘s biopics are typically great, stranger than fiction stories about artists. The duo behind Big Eyes, Man on the Moon, and Ed Wood normally don’t write about conventional figures, and that’s true for a new project they have in the works, King of the Jungle, which John Requa and Glenn Ficarra will direct, with Johnny […]

When Film Recreates History

16 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A comparative video pits reality against cinema.

When it comes to recreating history in film, the medium finds itself in a precarious position: on the one hand it needs to portray the events and people in question with some degree of accuracy, while at the same time, straight facts are for documentaries and narrative filmmaking requires a little more subjectivity and personal filtering for the sake of story. It’s a spectrum, this position, and one in which directors can lean closer to or further away from verisimilitude depending on their intentions. Oliver Stone is a good example of a director who does both: in films like Salvador, Nixon, or Snowden he leans towards historical objectivity; in films like World Trade Center, JFK, or W. he uses history as a basis for a more subjective study.

In the following, really quite cool video from our friend Vugar Efendi, scenes from films depicting historical persons and events — including »

Is James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist’ Already an Oscar Contender?

13 March 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The SXSW Film Festival continues to grow in scope, as a launching pad for broad studio comedies and blockbusters — see “Bridesmaids,” “Neighbors,” and “Trainwreck” — but it’s never unveiled a major Oscar contender before. That might have changed on Sunday night, with the “work-in-progress” premiere of James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist.”

On paper, the movie should be a niche story — a comedy about the making of what’s widely regarded as the worst movie of all time, the 2003 cult indie “The Room,” starring an outsider named Tommy Wiseau, who financed the project and directed it, too. But to say the Austin crowd was ecstatic at the premiere is an understatement. I don’t think I’ve ever heard such thunderous rolls of laughter at the Paramount Theatre, thanks to a tour-de-force (and career-best) performance by Franco, who also (how method!) directed the upcoming Warner Bros. release.

'SNL' Star Pete Davidson Talks Sobriety on Humorous 'Weekend Update' Spot

Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson has been public about his struggles with drugs and alcohol, but on this week's episode the funny man got real about the, uhh… perks of sobriety.

In a "Weekend Update" segment, where the 23-year-old comedian mocked the Republican spokespeople being called on to defend the Trump administration's controversies, Davidson hit upon a comparison between the Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, whose involvement with the Gop's proposed replacement for Obamacare has opposition even within his own party, and himself.

Jim Carrey: a salute to his darker roles

9 January 2017 12:40 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robin Bell Jan 13, 2017

Jim Carrey proved his acting range in the late 90s and 2000s. We salute the likes of The Truman Show, The Cable Guy and Man On The Moon.

You know you're a fan of something when that fandom is put to the test. Did you stick with Community when Dan Harmon wasn't writing it? During the barren 90s did you cling onto the hope that Doctor Who would return and be fantastic? Those moments when your patience and perseverance are tested are what make the privilege of being a fan important.
