If there is a reliable truism that can coexist alongside the American film industry’s dance of death with economically insane budgets that now routinely soar north of $200 million, it is that (most) critics and potential ticket-buyers can be counted on to review bad buzz and publicized woes of dollars and production instead of the actual movie once it finally finds its way to a screen. And it may in fact be true that the drama behind the scenes often outstrips the quality of the wide-screen finished product, though certainly this is not always the case. The reception of big-budget box-office flops like John Carter, The Lone Ranger, Jupiter Ascending and Oliver Stone’s Alexander are but some late examples of our number-crunching obsession with pop culture minutiae and the fascination of a behemoth’s preordained fall.

Interview: Actor Don Cheadle Discovers Himself ‘Miles Ahead’

6 April 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Like improvisational jazz, the performance career of Don Cheadle has many moods, directions and shadings. For his latest film, he takes on the titles of co-writer and director, along with the lead role of music legend Miles Davis. This all comes together is the aptly titled “Miles Ahead.”

Cheadle applies a different kind of music biography spin, with a centerpiece story about Davis that operates as a mythical framework for the musician’s life story, told in a loose flashback format. The cinematic structure is jazzy and kinetic, and it moves forward with an energy all of its own, driven by the frenetic soundtrack of the man himself. As a director, Cheadle has crafted something outside the norm, a visual blend that could be at home within the florid sweep of a Miles Davis composition.

Ocean’s Eleven is Back: A Celebration of the Franchise

8 March 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In recent years, Hollywood has come under increasing pressure to address what’s seen as a huge gender inequality issue within the movie industry. With an overwhelmingly positive response to Paul Feig’s upcoming all-female remake of Ghostbusters, and now the news of a possible Ocean’s Eleven reboot, this time with an all-star female cast, it’s looking like things may be about to change.

Rumours of the all-female sequel began to circulate last year, as reported by The Playlist. Since then there have been numerous reports of who will join the cast. Oscar winner Sandra Bullock is reportedly set to step into the lead role, made famous by George Clooney in the 2001 remake of the original film and its sequels.

Hunger Games director Gary Ross has been tipped to direct the remake, which has the backing of the last trilogy’s director Steven Soderbergh, who is also rumoured »
