8 amazing rock 'n' roll transformations: From Gary Oldman to Cate Blanchett

24 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic All By My Side opens in cinemas today (October 24).

Andre '3000' Benjamin plays the iconic musician in the movie, which depicts Jimi's humble beginnings to becoming possibly the world's greatest guitarist.

This has inspired us to compile our own list of the greatest portrayals of musicians in rock 'n' roll biopics, often going above and beyond mere physical transformation:

1. Andy Serkis as Ian Dury

Andy Serkis was BAFTA nominated for his critically-acclaimed role - played to perfection - as charismatic '70s punk rock singer and songwriter Ian Dury in Mat Whitecross's 2010 biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

To portray Dury's physical condition - he contracted polio as a child - Serkis lost two stone and built up the muscle mass on the right-hand side of his body so the other side was weaker.

He added: "I had a body wax. It's the most »

'Transformers' sound mixers reveal how they kept your ears from caving in

23 October 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Greg. P Russell and Scott Millan are masters of an art that can be difficult to appreciate. Great sound mixers take essential tracks — dialogue, score, and effects, all crafted and fighting for ear space — and meld them together to match, or enhance, the visuals on screen. In a film like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” the balancing act is like a Philippe Petit tightrope walk, one rogue robo-braam tipping the controlled chaos soundscape into cacophony. In a new installment of Variety’s Artisans series, senior VP Tim Grey talks to Russell and Millan about the fourth “Transformers” and Michael Bay’s increasingly difficult audio challenge. “As Michael would testify, sound is 50 percent of his films,” says Russell in the video. A 16-time Oscar-nominated sound mixer, Russell has fit each of Bay’s “Transformers” films between work like “Skyfall” and “Alice in Wonderland.” “Age of Extinction” marked Millan’s first brush with Optimus Prime. »

Exodus: Gods And Kings Isn’t The Longest Film Of 2014 After All

22 October 2014 10:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks to an erroneous posting over on IMDb, moviegoers around the world assumed that Ridley Scott’s upcoming sword and sandals epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, had an appropriately massive run time to match, with the page pegging the film’s length at an eye-watering, bum-numbing three hours and twenty minutes.

However, 20th Century Fox took to the movie’s official Twitter account and verified the correct length of Scott’s biblical motion picture, stating that the film will run for a much more reasonable two hours and twenty minutes.

People have asked, here’s the answer: running time of Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ will be approximately 2 hours 20 mins.

— Exodus (@ExodusMovie) October 21, 2014

Well, we say correct when it should be not-quite-finalized; after all, there’s every chance that the final cut of Exodus: Gods and Kings could dip below or indeed balloon past that aforementioned run time »

Ten Potential Oscar Contenders That Will Premiere by the End of the Year

21 October 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve seen Oscar contenders premiere at Sundance, Cannes, Berlin, Telluride, Toronto and New York, but as we approach the end of October, some films have yet to make their debut. Here are ten films that have been garnering Oscar buzz that will be debuting through December (in alphabetical order):

A Most Violent Year; Nov. 6

Jc Chandor ‘s third feature film will be opening AFI Fest. It reunites two Juilliard alumni, Oscar Isaac and two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain, as a couple living and working in New York City during one of its most violent years. This will be the main Oscar focus of upstart, indie distributor A24.

American Sniper; Dec. 25

Bradley Cooper stars as Navy Seal Chris Kyle in the shocking, true story of the deadliest American sniper. The Clint Eastwood-directed film is being released later in the year, »

Ridley Scott To Tackle Ebola In New TV Limited Series

20 October 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the Ebola virus dominating news headlines worldwide, it was only a matter of time until Hollywood dug its heels in on turning the hot-button topic into a full-blown series. Recently, producer Lynda Obst (Interstellar) and director-producer Ridley Scott (Gladiator) announced that they’ll be creating a limited series for Fox TV Studios, adapted from Richard Preston’s 1994 nonfiction bestseller The Hot Zone.

Obst and Scott optioned Preston’s book two decades ago and never abandoned the project, tapping Jeff Vintar (I, Robot) to adapt The Hot Zone into what was originally envisioned as a film for Scott to direct. Now that the recent outbreak – the deadliest on record – has made the virus extremely timely, the pair feel that it’s high time to push ahead with the adaptation, though the project will now take the form of a TV miniseries. Obst said of the decision:

58th BFI London Film Festival – The Way He Looks (2014)

19 October 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Way He Looks (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho), 2014.

Directed by Daniel Ribeiro.

Starring Ghilherme Lobo, Fabio Audi and Tess Amorim.

Synopsis:

A blind teenage boy falls in love with one of his classmates.

There’s a particular branch of film theory that deals entirely with the sense of touch in cinema; about how you experience what the protagonist feels onscreen. Not in some emotional, empathetic way, but as a physical response. The reeds on Russell Crowe’s hands as he wonders through Gladiator’s Elysian fields. The taste of the scrambled eggs at Michael Fassbender’s bedside in Hunger. The knee being caved in by the hammer of Kill List. It’s called ‘haptic visuality‘. In The Way He Looks, it’s ones lips practicing a kiss on the window of a shower.

The film’s title is a pun, so the movie had won points before it began. »

Exodus: Gods and Kings Preview: Can Ridley Scott Make a Contemporary Biblical Epic?

17 October 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We at Lr had a chance to check out about 40 minutes of director Ridley Scott’s new historical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings last night. Here’s what we thought.

The series of clips shown went from massive battles to small, intimate character moments that really tried to give you a sense of the grand scale the film is trying to work on as well as the personal story it’s trying to tell beneath it. Bible stories seem to be the new avenue for filmmakers to go down these days, and though Darren Aronofsky’s Noah left a little to be desired it looks like Ridley Scott is embracing his usual overblown sword and sandals method to tell this timeless biblical tale of Moses and Ramses.

The first clip began with both Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton) preparing to go off to war. We’ll get to »

Derek Jacobi Gets Locked Up And Strung Out In ‘Jail Caesar’

17 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Hollywood bruised from a generally lacklustre summer, audiences may be looking for something a little more outside the box. When it comes to category-defying films Jail Caesar has the potential to plug that gap and have an elephant stand on the plug for good measure. Also known as Stringcaesar (due to the overarching theme of string theory) it started life as a play about the early life of the controversial Roman ruler and features Derek Jacobi and Alice Krige (Star Trek: First Contact, Thor: The Dark World). But what gives the project its edge is the setting – Ancient Rome has been transposed to the prison system and many of the actors are inmates. Shot on the hoof by writer/director Paul Schoolman at institutions in South Africa, Canada and Cardiff, the project has the energy of interactive theatre and the look of a Dogme Collective entry.

Tech Support: Visual effects Oscar race features apes, raccoons and 'Interstellar'

9 October 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Best Visual Effects is often the place where the Academy recognizes what it is frequently accused of avoiding elsewhere: mainstream spectacle. Blockbusters reign in this category, at least at the nomination stage, with fantasy films, franchises and other money-makers always featuring prominently. The branch also has its specific fetishes, at least historically (talking animals immediately jumps to mind), though, in recent years, it has seemingly been all 3D, all the time. There are dozens if not hundreds of individuals who work on a film’s visual effects but the nomination can ultimately be shared by only four of them – usually the special effects supervisor and three visual effects supervisors.  While some names are "favorites" of the branch (John Frazier, Joe Letteri), this branch is hardly the most insular and tends to be more concerned about the work on display. We will receive a hint of the way they are »

Sneak Peek new footage from Season 2 of the horror TV series "Penny Dreadful", created for Showtime by Oscar-nominated John Logan ("Gladiator") and executive produced by Sam Mendes ("Skyfall"):

"...and iconic figures from the novel 'Dracula' reimagined in a whole new light...

"...have become embroiled in Victorian London..."

According to Showtime president David Nevins, Season 2  of the series will "...get bigger. There’s a great antagonist next year played by Helen McCrory as 'Madame Kali'. Season 1’s antagonist was sort of an inhuman character. It’ll be good to have a more human antagonist."

The Hype Cycle Week 4: Oscar Season Gets Ugly

2 October 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s only just October and already the Oscar season has grown ugly. And it’s not even the contenders battling for rank.

The heat is coming from the pundits themselves, who have already grown weary of some of their colleagues’ Bs and perpetual trumpeting. In Mark Harris’s brilliant first post about the Oscar race so far, he goes as far as to say that in “the real world”, there isn’t even a race yet. He tears apart the notions of rules, statistics and trends confirming nominees, and he laughs at the idea that each month or week there’s a new movie that changes everything about the race.

But there is excitement in the real world. This weekend Gone Girl is opening to raves and three of the most anticipated movies of the year in Inherent Vice, Interstellar and Exodus: Gods and Kings, got trailers. All of »

Oscars News: Will Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' be an Oscar 'secret weapon'?'

2 October 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Bill Desowitz asks if the new Ridley Scott epic film "Exodus: Gods and Kings" might be an Oscar "secret weapon" for this year. After watching a half hour of "powerful footage that left us wanting more," he says the "answer is definitely yes." Starring past champ Christian Bale as Moses, he calls it an "ambitious" retelling of the Biblical tale with Moses as a conflicted revolutionary and is "right up the Academy's alley." Scott had a previous Best Picture winner with "Gladiator" in 2000 although he lost the directing award to Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic"). Watch a new trailer for the sword-and-sandals movie, which opens in theaters on December 12.
