Tony Awards 2017: Key Moments, Interesting Stats, Winners List

12 June 2017 5:36 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

Last night the American theater community, and a boat load of adjacent stars (hello Tina Fey & Scarlett Johansson) celebrated Broadway triumphs at the 71st Annual Tony Awards. As expected the revival of Hello Dolly and Dear Evan Hansen owned the evening with 4 and 6 wins respectively. Composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are now halfway to the Egot in less than half a year having picked up the Oscar for Best Original song for La La Land back in February. But the peak of the evening was Bette Midler's very funny, quite enthusiastic and extremely long acceptance for Best Actress in a Musical (the biggest lock of the evening going in). It's the first time I can recall a performer ignoring the orchestra trying to play her off so insistently that they finally gave up. Her speech had a whole and even better second act as if »

Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay Pay Tribute to Each Other at Produced By Conference

10 June 2017 7:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two of Hollywood’s leading cultural icons — Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay — offered an upbeat glimpse Saturday at the origins of what’s to become an extensive collaboration.

Winfrey told a capacity crowd at the Zanuck Theater on the Fox lot that David Oyelowo had insisted that she look at DuVernay’s 2012 drama “The Middle of Nowhere,” which won the top prize at that year’s Sundance Film Festival. This then led to a Mother’s Day lunch at Winfrey’s home, where DuVernay brought in the biggest flower arrangement she could find leading Winfrey to agree to come on board as a producer and cast member on DuVernay’s “Selma.”

Winfrey told the crowd at the Producer Guild of America’s Produced By conference that she was moved by DuVernay’s behavior on the set, where it was often over 100 degrees.

The Emotional Naïveté of ‘Good Morning’ and Poignant Cynicism of ‘Ghost World’

4 June 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Yasujirō Ozu tends to be known by reputation as a restrained, despondent dramatist — and not, regrettably, as one of the rare artists immaculately in tune with the psychology, behavior and energy of children. His 1932 silent comedy I Was Born, But... is a delectable slice of humor, humanism, and social satire, grounded by an exceptional insight into the verbal and physical language of grade-school boys and brought to life by pitch-perfect performances a cast of young actors. In Good Morning, his characteristically sedate, loose remake of the aforementioned silent film, Ozu revisits similar thematic territory from the wizened perspective of his postwar films. Now with the tools of full audio and Technicolor at his disposal, Ozu spins a social and emotional tapestry from a 1950s Tokyo suburb in which two young brothers, desperate for their own TV set, take a vow of silence in protest against the frivolous speech of adult society. »

American Ninja Warrior Celeb Edition: Amell's Amazing Run and More

Stephen Amell, you did not fail American Ninja Warrior.

Unsurprisingly, the very fit star of Arrow dominated the course during the show’s first-ever celebrity edition on Thursday. The special episode was part of NBC’s annual Red Nose Day programming.

Amell easily made it through all six obstacles, never exercising the option to tag-in his coach Kacy Catanzaro. (I get why this choice was needed for some of the competitors, but I have to admit: I felt a bit cheated.) Once he got to the top of the Warped Wall, »

Newswire: Sam Mendes may direct Disney’s live-action Pinocchio remake

23 May 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Sam Mendes began his film career tackling all-caps serious dramas like American Beauty and Revolutionary Road, but has swerved to franchise blockbusters as of late with the Bond movies Skyfall and Spectre. Now Disney might enlist him to helm its live-action remake of Pinocchio: according to Variety, Mendes is in “early talks” for the project. Previously it was reported that he was in the same stage of negotiations for a new James And The Giant Peach movie, but Variety reports that’s off the table.

While Pinocchio still might not seem like a perfect fit for Mendes, keep in mind that he did direct a London stage production of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. Disney also recently hired Guy Ritchie to make Aladdin, so its choices have been relatively offbeat. And Pinocchio could be pretty juicy material. Who wouldn’t want to tackle a parable about lying in this day »

Disney’s Pinocchio: Sam Mendes to direct live action version

22 May 2017 10:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew May 23, 2017

Spectre and Skyfall director Sam Mendes has emerged as the top choice to direct Disney's live action Pinocchio movie.

Right now, Disney’s live action fairytale slate is in rude health. Beauty & The Beast’s takings, for instance, have hit $1.2bn and counting (it's now one of the biggest movies of all time at the box office). Mary Poppins Returns is currently filming, meanwhile, and Tim Burton is set to start shooting Dumbo imminently. And then Guy Ritchie will be directing Aladdin for the studio, which also starts production soon.

Disney's Pinocchio Live-Action Movie Targets James Bond Director

22 May 2017 6:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sam Mendes is in talks to take on Disney's live-action adaptation of Pinocchio. The monster box office success of Beauty and the Beast and The Jungle Book is sure to have been a deciding factor to continue rehashing the animated stories for Disney. The live-action adaptation of The Lion King is in the works and now the long rumored live-action Pinocchio may have found a director. The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Mulan are rumored to be coming next from the Mouse House.

Deadline reports that Mendes (American Beauty, Spectre) is currently in very early talks to direct the live-action Pinocchio for Disney. We'll take this news with a grain of salt because about a year ago it was reported that Mendes was in early talks to direct a live-action remake of James and the Giant Peach, which has yet to come into fruition. But it will be pretty interesting to »

Sherlock director rumored to be in running for Bond 25

2 May 2017 1:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to rumours, Eon Productions may have identitied Sam Mendes’ successor for Bond 25, with Paul McGuigan said to be in consideration for the coveted position.

“Word is, the producers are so pleased with Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, directed by Scotsman Paul McGuigan (SherlockLucky Number Slevin,” Victor Frankenstein), that he too is under consideration,” reports Indiewire. “Barbara Broccoli has long preferred to hire directors with arthouse cred over mainstream action specialists, from Oscar-winning American Beauty director Sam Mendes (Spectre and Skyfall) to Monster’s Ball director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace). Based on his tenure with the BBC One Sherlock series, and his handling of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Holmes and Watson, McGuigan would be a prime choice for a quirkier yet still compelling spin on Bond.”

Take all of this with a huge grain of salt. As one should with any rumor that starts with : “Word is… »

‘Bond 25’: Why The Next Director Could Be Indie

1 May 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After the start of last week’s bidding war with five Hollywood studios, rumors are swirling that as producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of Eon Productions (franchise co-owners with MGM) move closer to nailing down a creative direction for “Bond 25″ with screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the Bond team is leaning indie with their list of potential directors.

Word is, the producers are so pleased with”Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” directed by Scotsman Paul McGuigan (“Sherlock,” “Lucky Number Slevin,” “Victor Frankenstein”), that he too is under consideration. Annette Bening stars as actress Gloria Grahame, who falls in love with a young actor (Jamie Bell).

When Pop Punk turns Electro – It is time to go

28 April 2017 5:48 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

So far we have now seen the return of two major bands from the good old days of Pop Punk- Fall Out Boy and Paramore.

The two bands have released new singles over the past month, each demonstrating that they are looking to branch out and try their hand at different genres.

In a world of post-Brexit chaos, Donald Trump, Theresa May and Toblerones becoming smaller, I always believed that something good was going to happen that would make life that little more bearable. Well it seems my friends that shit is truly going downhill in all areas of existence.

When Paramore released Hard Times on April 19 I was shocked. A nostalgia-inducing video that wouldn’t be out of place being on the roster of an 80’s band videography with the cheesy electronic beats and hook. Where was the rock? Where Was The Humanity?! This isn’t the Paramore I know and love, »

"Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback."

20 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

For better or worse, the date April 20th infamously sparks an eternal flame in the hearts of potheads across the world in celebration over their vice of choice – and the canon of cinematic stoners is certainly no exception. Hash-loving hippies have long cropped up in motion pictures as anti-establishment icons, quasi-kings of interminable philosophy, and occasionally as crutches for comic relief or character development. While the presence of marijuana in the movies holds a certain time capsule cache in relation to broader anxieties over cultural identity within era-defining films such as Easy Rider or American Beauty or even Children of Men – not to mention its propagandist roots in cautionary tales such as Reefer Madness – it has chiefly acted as a dispensary for daffy, dippy diversions in cannabis-centric comedies like Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, Half Baked, or Cheech and Chong
