Richard Corliss Remembered: A Great Critic of the Movies, and of Criticism Itself

24 April 2015 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We film critics have an often infuriating tendency to write as much about ourselves, and the state of our profession, as we do about the movies. This is hardly a new phenomenon, of course, but it may be more prevalent than ever before: Whether we’re seeking out pockets of online validation or trying to provoke those with whom we violently disagree (or both), the rise of social media has made it all too easy to engage directly with our ideological allies and adversaries alike. At the same time, the continual thinning of our professional ranks has fueled endless arguments and think-pieces about whether the Internet has succeeded in decimating or diversifying the field.

All of which makes it particularly important to remember Richard Corliss — not just because the veteran Time critic hailed from that honorable, not-yet-bygone tradition of wordsmiths who composed sharp, beautifully considered reviews for the printed page, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer: "Do you bleed? You will"

17 April 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"Tell me - do you bleed? You will!"

The full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been officially released.

Director Zack Snyder posted a clear version of the trailer on his Twitter account on Friday (April 17), nearly 24 hours after it leaked online in a grainy bootleg copy.

The moody and atmospheric 2-minute clip examines the role of Superman (Henry Cavill) in human society in the aftermath of the destruction he caused while battling General Zod in Man of Steel.

Newsman Charlie Rose and others can be heard championing the Kryptonian refugee as a hero, while Holly Hunter says in voiceover: "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

"The world has been so caught up with what he can do, that no-one has asked what he should do."

Scenes of Superman conducting various heroic tasks are juxtaposed with shots of Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne staring at his Batman costume in the Batcave. »

"Batman v Superman" Trailer Details, Breakdown

16 April 2015 8:32 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

More details on the teaser trailer launch for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" have arrived. Indie Revolver has posted a schedule of what will happen starting with the film's first one-sheet going online on Monday at 9am Us-pdt.

Then, an 'Enhanced' version of the trailer will screen in cinemas that night at 7pm. The show will run the trailer twice with director Zack Snyder doing an intro for both times. Then the 'Non-Enhanced' version of the trailer goes online worldwide from 9am Us-pdt on Tuesday.

No-one is quite sure what the difference between the versions will be. There's one small problem though - a bootleg of the complete trailer leaked online earlier today and is popping up on various blogs. Warners is pulling them down fast, but the big question is will this change their plans? I won't link bootlegs here, but here's a review/description of it:

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Demands CBS Use Syrian Technicians, Cameras in Charlie Rose Interview (Video)

30 March 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Charlie Rose’s interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad aired on “60 Minutes” Sunday, where the CBS anchor asked him about Isis and chemical weapons. Rose explained off the top of the segment that he did the interview under the condition he use Syrian technicians and cameras.  The dictator wants his own crew and equipment for fear of assassination. On Isis, Assad said American airstrikes on Isis “can have local benefit,” then saying Isis has actually expanded since America began airstrikes months ago, suggesting America was trying to “sugarcoat” the situation to say Isis is shrinking.

Four years after President Barack Obama declared that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must give up his power, the leader still remains firmly in power, albeit in the midst of a brutal civil war that has cost hundreds of thousands of lives. Assad sat down Sunday evening for a lengthy conversation with CBS 60 Minutes correspondent Charlie Rose and faced tough questions about the nature of his power struggle and whether he intends to abdicate the presidency any time soon. »

Watch: Helen Mirren on Playing the Queen Again, and How Al Pacino Inspires Her (Video)

23 March 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After winning the Best Actress Oscar for Stephen Frears' 2006 "The Queen," Helen Mirren was reluctant to reprise the role but unable to turn down director Stephen Daldry and writer Peter Morgan when they wanted her to topline their Broadway play "The Audience." Mirren says inhabiting the Queen on the stage is less difficult than navigating the very hidden Elizabeth Windsor in closeup on film. The play is about how England's prime ministers all meet with Queen Elizabeth every Tuesday behind closed doors, like she's their shrink. (Read Variety's favorable review.) Mirren says the Queen has never not been there in her life, and that she admires Elizabeth's extraordinary service and discipline.  Below, on Charlie Rose, she also talks about how she digs back into the Holocaust (as she did for one of her favorite roles as an Mossad spy in John Madden's "The Debt") in order to play elderly Jewish woman Maria Altmann, »

2 March 2015 9:22 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Update Monday 9:22 Am: Here’s the 60 Minutes clip we were talking about over the weekend in which Larry David refutes the amount of money he made off of Seinfeld. It’s actually an outtake from the interview which wasn’t included in last night’s episode. David calls the figures that the media has reported on his worth over the years “ridiculous and absurd and unseemly.” “I don’t have that kind of money! My wife took half of it in the divorce,” David tells Charlie Rose… »

Larry David created “Seinfeld,” one of the most successful sit-coms in television history, so how did it change him? It gave him lots of money, but he still lacks the confidence to say hello to a woman in a bar, he says in a new “60 Minutes” interview. David couldn’t avoid firing off a barrage of acerbic one-liners in new preview of his conversation with Charlie Rose. ...Read More »

Watch: Ethan Hawke's Moving Reflections On Robin Williams & Philip Seymour Hoffman Plus 30-Min Interview

13 February 2015 6:43 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's still hard to believe the cinematic world has lost both Robin Williams and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the past year. Ethan Hawke had the good fortune to work with both actors at pivotal stages in his career. As a young up-and-comer, he played one of Williams' students in Peter Weir's "Dead Poets Society," and as a much more seasoned actor, he co-starred with Hoffman in Sidney Lumet's final film "Before The Devil Knows You're Dead." Stopping by "Charlie Rose" recently, Hawke shared his memories on working with both actors. A brief summary couldn't capture the emotions he feels very deeply about two men who clearly left a profound impression. Check it out below, and after that watch the full thirty minute interview with Hawke talking "Boyhood," his documentary "Seymour: An Introduction," and much more.

‘Birdman’ almost ended with an A-list cameo

7 February 2015 1:46 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

So as Birdman heads into Oscar season, the screenwriter reveals that the movie almost ended with a massive cameo that would’ve made us forget (at least a little bit) about Mortdecai.

While on The Q & A with Jeff Goldsmith podcast, Birdman screenwriter Alex Dinelaris talked about how the ending of the film almost didn’t go the way it ended up and that the movie would’ve transitioned from Michael Keaton to another actor before the credits rolled.

“So we had one other ending that was satirical. The other ending was that he shoots himself on the stage. The camera comes around to the audience and their standing ovation — all the way around, like Chivo [Emmanuel Lubezki] and Alejandro did the whole time — and the segue was back on to the stage and on the stage was like James Lipton or Charlie Rose and Michael [Keaton] was sitting across from him and »

The Original 'Birdman' Ending Revealed and It Was to Feature Johnny Deppc

6 February 2015 11:25 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

At the beginning of January, The Playlist posted an interview with Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu discussing the film as well as mentioning a different ending for the film. He told the site, "It had a different ending but in the middle of shooting, I knew it was a piece of sh*t. I felt it and the film began to breathe by itself, and the characters began to grow. I went in and wrote it with Alexander Dinelaris and Nico Giacobone, and I am so happy that I changed it. Now I feel very good about the ending. It feels very fair." amz asin="B00RO49JEI" size="small"When asked what it was, Inarritu said, "I will never tell you. It would be so embarrassing. It was bad." Well, it sounds like Dinelaris has a little bit of a different memory of why the ending didn't make it »

Charlie Rose Started on His Long Career Trail Deep in the Heart of Texas

6 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Charlie Rose seems ubiquitous on TV these days, given his roles as a co-anchor on “CBS This Morning” and as long-running host of his own “Charlie Rose” show on PBS. At an earlier point in his career, however, he just hoped to be as successful as Phil Donahue. He received one of his first mentions in Variety back in 1979, when he took over as host of a morning show and program director at Kxas in Fort Worth, Texas. The experience would prove to be a crucial stepping-off point.

Talk about your decision to move to Fort Worth. You’d been doing a morning program in Chicago.

I wanted to host my own show. I met someone, Blake Byrne, who turned out to be from Duke, and I had graduated from Duke. He said, “Come here, I’d love to have you do a new morning program. We’ll call it ‘The Charlie Rose Show, »

A timeline of the 'Selma' controversy

7 January 2015 2:37 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As Ava DuVernay's "Selma" moves out into wide release Friday, just 10 days shy of the Martin Luther King holiday on Jan. 19, the film finds itself in a tug-of-war over accuracy and dramatic license. If you've only skimmed the headlines or caught wind peripherally, here's a quick timeline of some of the debate's highlights. *** December 22: Things begin just before the holiday, when Mark K. Updegrove, director of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, blasts the film's depiction of the King/Johnson dynamic at Politico. "'Selma' misses mightily in faithfully capturing the pivotal relationship — contentious, the film would have you believe," he writes. He then details how Johnson's feet-dragging on the issue of voting rights was less about simple trepidation than politicking and finding the best way to time out the series of events so that Congress wouldn't stop it cold: "Yes, Johnson advocated stripping a potent »
