Premiere magazine highlighted 10 movie executives to watch in 1990. So what happened to them?
In its May 1990 issue, the sadly-missed Us version of Premiere magazine published an article, highlighting ten young movie executives, and suggesting that these were people with very big futures ahead of them in the industry.
Given that much is written about movie executives, without actually digging much deeper to find out who they actually are, I thought it was worth tracing what happened to these ten, and – 26 years later – whether Premiere was correct in saluting them as the future of the industry. So, er, I did...
Senior production VP, Paramount Pictures
Pictured in the article on an office swivel chair with some snazzy purple socks, Lance Young, Premiere wrote, had been “groomed for big things since joining Paramount at the age of 23”. He was 30 at the time the article was published, and »

Action/thrillers about cops and robbers have been around for eighty years, but writer/director David Ayer successfully carved out a niche of his own over the past decade and a half with films that ramp up the intensity, immediacy, and authenticity on both sides of the law. Movies like Training Day, Dark Blue, Street Kings, and End of Watch drop viewers into the murky and restless grey area where both the good guys and bad guys move. Ayer’s last effort in this direction, Sabotage, is a ridiculous mess, and since then he’s moved further away with the WWII tank warfare film, Fury, and the upcoming comic adaptation, Suicide Squad. “Who will take up his mantle during this sabbatical?”, ask fans of testosterone-fueled, graphically violent, morally scattershot action films about law and disorder. (Okay, fine, it’s just me asking…) Turns out John Hillcoat is your huckleberry, apparently. Triple 9 »

John Hillcoat’s Triple 9 opens this Friday, and the fact that it’s not a David Ayer movie doesn’t stop it from being the best David Ayer movie since 2008. That’s not to say it’s necessarily a good movie, but it feels very much like one of Ayer’s testosterone-fueled explorations of man’s unstoppable pull towards violence. So of course I came home and threw in Ayer’s 2008 gem, Street Kings. I don’t care what anyone says, this is fantastic goddamn entertainment. Thrilling action sequences, real suspense, and a strong cast (who occasionally chew the Los Angeles scenery) make it a fun descent into hero-cop hell. Having already seen the film multiple times I decided to check out Ayer’s commentary this time around. He’s no stranger to movies about the blue and the grey — cops and fuzzy moralities — having written and/or directed Training Day, Dark Blue »

While at Sundance, Vulture talked to Spike Lee about the recent Oscar-diversity controversy. Here is but one sample:
It’s very presumptuous for my man Alejandro [Iñarritú] to tell anyone, especially black people, what to do. We know what to do. Also, if it wasn’t for [#OscarsSoWhite creator] April Reign, myself, my wife, Jada [Pinkett Smith] and Will [Smith], he wouldn’t even be talking about this. So him and them guys, they should chill. You had many opportunities to talk about this before, you chose to be quiet, Alejandro. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I ain’t heard him talk about diversity ever before.
