The Weinstein Company's Tim Burton Big Eyes press conference at the Park Hyatt Hotel included Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Danny Huston, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman with writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Tim Burton relived the passion of Ed Wood and revealed that his children can watch Sleepy Hollow and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street and not Big Eyes. Waltz and Adams spoke about their relationship to portraying Walter Keane and Margaret Keane. Schwartzman and Karaszewski referenced the impact of the art world and Terence Stamp's John Canaday. Alexander saw a Marx Brothers scene that was toned down for Big Eyes and Alexander Mackendrick's Sweet Smell Of Success turns out to have been a big influence after Vincente Minnelli's An American In Paris was brought up.

The Performance | It takes a certain kind of performer to make us feel sorry for the bad guy. But to make us feel sorry for Gemma Teller, in particular, it takes a performance that’s unflinchingly emotional, pure and genuine.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Grimm, Arrow/The Flash and Peter Pan Live!
1 | Was Grimm‘s Nick/Juliette-as-Adalind sex scene just a scooch more pervy than you expected it to be? (And did you love the moment even more because of it?)
2 | How, how, how did Jessie not foresee her movie-star gal pal Shayelee (inadvertently) stealing her TV guest star gig? Also, why play your “Liv and Maddie crossover” card if neither Liv nor Maddie will appear?

Back in 1999, I was a teenage film geek sneaking into R-rated movies. Without question, one of the titles I saw that year which left a lasting impression was The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), the superb adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's psychological thriller novel starring Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow. The camera moves, performances, costumes, cinematography -- all of it took me on a cinematic journey I had not experienced until then. However, that movie was only a taste of the varied class of movies that made up 1999 at the cinema.
From edgy comedies like Election (1999), to haunting dramas like The Virgin Suicides (1999) (pictured at top), the lead up to the millenium brought forth a year full of one celluloid gem after another. In honor of the Alamo Drafthouse's 12-week tribute to 1999, which runs through mid-December, I thought I'd revisit the year in question and examine how such a vibrant burst of »

Christopher Walken is a perennial villain onscreen — in Batman Returns, A View to a Kill, Sleepy Hollow, True Romance and The Rundown, among others — and come Thursday, he'll wear a wig and lose a hand to play antagonist Captain Hook in NBC's Peter Pan Live! "I don't know how [I got typecast to play so many villains] but I think it's like anything else, in the movies in particular, if you establish yourself as something and you're lucky enough to keep getting hired," he recently told The Hollywood Reporter during a press event in New York. But his long résumé of

Childhood Memories: ‘Sneak Previews’
When renowned film critic, Roger Ebert, died last year, there was a huge outpouring of appreciation from film lovers around the world. He was an ambassador for cinema who introduced audiences to countless films they might have otherwise missed. Ebert and his long-time partner, Gene Siskel, started reviewing movies on their Chicago PBS affiliate back in 1975. The program was called Sneak Previews, and it laid the foundation for their hugely successful syndicated show, Siskel & Ebert, that was to follow a decade later… read the full article.

As anticipation grows for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, arriving in theaters this weekend, Star Wars: Episode VIII is firming up its behind-the-scenes team. Rick Heinrichs has officially come aboard the project to serve as production designer. His previous movies include Captain America: The First Avenger and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Aside from the June announcement that Rian Johnson will write and direct both Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, Rick Heinrichs is the only other confirmed crew member announced regarding these follow-ups to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We reported in August that Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley will be back for the sequels. That has never been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Convergence is described as a college-age ensemble piece in the vein of Flatliners, The Matrix, and Fight Club based on real life “science fact”. It follows a group of underground biotech engineers, including an MIT student wunderkind, exploring a new technology far beyond their expectations and beyond the limits of human control.
The actor, director, and producer currently stars as Stefan Salvatore on The CW’s hit show The Vampire Diaries.

Adult Swim’s “Black Dynamite” is the latest to bash Bill Cosby The latest shot at Cosby, revolving around a “Cosby Coon Renewal Program,” has nothing to do with the rape allegations. In Friday’s episode, titled “Sweet Bill’s Badass Song or Cos Ain’t Himself,” Cosby is portrayed as a villain who kidnaps all the “blackity-black” actors in an effort to get them to “stop cooning in Black Hollywood.” The timely episode has been in the works for a year. Discovery's “Eaten Alive” could kill an anaconda Dr. Jesús A. Rivas, who specializes in the green anaconda that the Discovery special is using explains: "When they swallow a prey, because they don't have the respiratory system that we do, they can either swallow or breathe. They can't do both. So during the time the prey goes through what would be the throat, they have to do that in apnea. »

Grandeur often rules the day in Best Production Design, which awards the men and women responsible for a movie's set design and construction. The category typically favors period pieces, though at least one fantasy title tends to find a home every year. It is rare for truly contemporary films to be nominated. However, the category is more open to fantasy and contemporary pieces than its cousin Best Costume Design. (Last year was the first year the costume designers had their own branch, but no easily discernible new trends could be observed in my opinion.) Recent years have also suggested openness to CGI-complemented work ("Life of Pi" and "Gravity" immediately jump to mind). On that note, it's worth mentioning that the Art Directors Guild has implemented a new rule somewhat under the radar for its precursor awards this season. According to the new provision, period films must now have the majority »
