The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

2 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and sponsored by Swarovski, this ticketed exhibition »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

170 Days until Oscars: Brody & Dreyfuss

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

170 is the amount of days by which Adrien Brody (The Pianist) narrowly defeated Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl) to become the Youngest Best Actor winner ever. Do you think both of them deserved their wins?

Adrien Brody (29) and Richard Dreyfus (30) are the 2 youngest Lead Actor winners

1977 Best Actor 2002 Best Actor Woody Allen, Annie Hall Adrien Brody, The Pianist Richard Burton, Equus Nicolas Cage, Adaptation Richard Dreyfus, The Goodbye Girl Michael Caine, The Quiet American Marcelo Mastroianni, A Special Day Daniel Day Lewis, Gangs of New York John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever Jack Nicholson, About Schmidt

 

The most hilarious thing about this statistic is that Adrien Brody is both the youngest Best Actor winner at 29 And the only twentysomething winner. Meanwhile "29" is actually the most common age to win Best Actress. These eight women all accomplished it and none of them were anywhere close to making a "youngest" list.

Not So Fast On ‘Hey Ho, Let’s Go’

28 August 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

I’m seeing all these trade dispatches on a movie about The Ramones with Martin Scorsese, which came out of a Billboard story where the family mentioned various possible projects timed to the seminal punk band’s 40th anniversary. Here’s the truth: there is no script. Scorsese has an attachment, but he has also so many obligations, he might want to be sedated.

Scorsese is posting the pilot he directed for the HBO ’70s rock and roll series he’s doing with Mick Jagger and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter; he next directs Silence, an adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel that has taken Scorsese about two decades to finally get to, and is the kind of movie that takes a lot of time. He’s also going to direct the pilot for Ashecliffe, the Dennis Lehane-scripted series based on Shutter Island. Then there are many other projects he’s percolating, »

Miramax secures $250m re-finance

21 August 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Chairman Thomas J Barrack Jr said the movie reflected “stability and maturity” as top brass seek to grow the development and production business.

The securitisation included the issuance of a $250m aggregate principal amount of 3.34% of film library asset-backed notes offering due in 2026, as well as a $25m revolving credit facility.

It is understood the Santa Monica-based company has no immediate plans to use the credit funds until required.

“This refinancing reflects the stability and maturity of Miramax as an operating company and represents the next step in the company’s evolution,” said Barrack Jr.

“We appreciate that the market recognises Miramax’s quality of content, combined with the consistency, length, diversity and credit quality of contractual income streams, and we look forward to putting these additional funds to work as we grow new production in line with the powerful Miramax brand.”

Barclays served as the sole structuring advisor and sole bookrunner for the securitisation as well »

Elderly action heroes and Hollywood age issues

14 August 2014 12:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of The Expendables 3 leads James to the conclusion that, when it comes to being an action hero, age is just a number...

"All I have produced before the age of 70 is not worth taking into account. At 73 I have learned a little... a little about the real structure of nature, of animals, plants, trees, birds, fishes and insects. In consequence when I am 80, I shall have made still more progress. At 90 I shall penetrate the mystery of things; at 100 I shall certainly have reached a marvellous stage; and when I am 110, everything I do, be it a dot or a line, will be alive." - Hokusai, the Japanese artist who painted the famous 'Great Wave off Kanagawa' and kept on creating astounding art until his death at the age of 88.

Robin Williams moved from commercial productions to prestige cinema with ease

11 August 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I had to stop and think about it. When was the first time I encountered Robin Williams? I'm pretty sure it was reruns of "Mork & Mindy" at a young age, if not the boisterous Oscar-nominated performance he gave in Barry Levinson's "Good Morning, Vietnam." By then he had already dazzled countless audiences in "The World According to Garp." Whatever it was, like so many, it was the start of, as his widow noted in a release, "countless moments of joy and laughter" he would deliver for the next three decades of my life. And now, he's gone. It soon became erratic late night appearances with David Letterman and the like, as the movies flowed in. Terry Gilliam's "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen," for instance, or another, much more timid Oscar-nominated performance in Peter Weir's "Dead Poets Society." He continued to spotlight range and versatility in Penny Marshall »

Review: 'Sex Tape' Starring Cameron Diaz And Jason Segel

16 July 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As far as weird on-screen sexual scenarios go, Cameron Diaz has had her fair share. After all, she is the only actress in the history of the medium to have styled her hair with male ejaculate ("There's Something About Mary"), been involved in some kind of weird old timey abortion ("Gangs of New York") and, well, f*cked a car ("The Counselor"). So it's not much of a surprise that she'd be involved in a movie like "Sex Tape," a ribald comedy about a suburban couple (Jason Segel as her husband) who make a homemade porno and then promptly lose it—leading to a madcap scramble to retrieve the video, maintain their privacy, and continue a life of relative upper middle class normalcy. What is surprising, however, is how bland "Sex Tape" is. On the scale of on-screen Cameron Diaz sexual outrageousness, it's pretty tepid. "Sex Tape" starts out well enough, »

Martin Scorsese's next film, Silence, set for November 2015

14 July 2014 10:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Martin Scorsese's Silence, starring Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanabe, is set for release in November 2015...

News

With The Wolf Of Wall Street proving to be a huge hit worldwide, on top of the awards attention it attracted, it's unsurprising that there's no shortage of interest from studios in director Martin Scorsese's next feature. It's Paramount Pictures that is now set to acquire distribution rights to Silence, however, with a plan to release it in November 2015. Prime awards season, that. Paramount has distributed, in the Us at least, both The Wolf Of Wall Street and Shutter Island.

Silence is based on the book by Shusako Endo, and Scorsese has had this project earmarked reportedly for a decade. Set in the 17th century, Silence follows two priests and the violence, persecution and hostility they face when they head to Japan to spread the word about Christianity, and track down their mentor. »

Martin Scorsese's upcoming project Silence has been assigned a prospective release date.

Paramount Pictures is acquiring the Us distribution rights for the Scorsese film, reports Deadline.

Martin Scorsese's 'Silence' eyeing November 2015 release after Paramount acquisition

14 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Martin Scorsese's "Silence" is finally making its way to the screen. First announcing his intention to direct an adaptation of the acclaimed Shusako Endo novel in 2007, the Oscar-winning filmmaker has directed a trio of narrative features in the intervening years ("Shutter Island," "Hugo" and "The Wolf of Wall Street") but is now closer than ever to realizing his vision for the book, which was the recipient of Japan's prestigious Tanizaki Prize in 1966. Paramount Pictures has officially acquired U.S. distribution rights to the project -- whose production is being financed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis partners Randall Emmett and George Furla -- for an awards-season release in November 2015, according to a report by Deadline. Starring Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, Ken Watanabe and Adam Driver and written by Jay Cocks (who previously collaborated with Scorsese on "Gangs of New York" and "The Age of Innocence"), the film will shoot at least partially in Taiwan. »

Cinecittà World Theme Park Designed By Dante Ferretti Unveiled in Rome

10 July 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Rome’s long-in-the-works $300 million Cinecittà World theme park, designed by multiple-Oscar-winning production designer designer Dante Ferretti and based on films shot at the famed studios, including “Ben Hur,” several by Federico Fellini, and Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of New York,” was unveiled on Thursday (July 10) with plenty of fanfare and Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi on hand.

Conceived almost a decade ago as an Italian take on Universal Studios, Cinecittà World currently comprises twenty attractions, including several state-of-the-art roller coasters, a dark motion simulator ride called “Dante’s Inferno,” a flight simulator, and an immersive tunnel.

The look is a mix of sword and sandals epics, Fellinesque and Bollywood elements, including gigantic elephants, science fiction, spaghetti westerns and many other themes concocted by Ferretti from the more than 3,000 movies and TV shows produced at Cinecitta, once known as Hollywood on the Tiber.
