The new colour-free version of Mad Max: Fury Road is leading a renewed charge in black-and-white filmmaking
Take a look at the latest Mad Max movie and you will notice that it isn’t, in fact, a new Mad Max at all. That’s still Tom Hardy strapped to the front of a speeding jalopy, while shaven-headed kamikaze drivers zigzag around one another bellowing their war cries. And they’re still in hot pursuit of Charlize Theron, as she ploughs her juggernaut across the post-apocalyptic desert. But the fireballs and flame-throwing guitars look subtly different now; subdued, even classical. It’s the faces and the landscapes, both equally craggy, that have a surprising new texture and prominence in George Miller’s colourless version of Mad Max: Fury Road (subtitled “black and chrome edition”), which reaches cinemas this month, two years after the success of the eye-popping original. It had been »

The French drama Frantz is film about secrets, lies, mourning and the aftermath of World War I rather than the romantic period film is might at first glance appear to be. Set shortly after what was known then as the Great War, and also known as the war of the Lost Generation, for how it virtually wiped out a whole generation of young men and, ironically, as the War to End All Wars, this drama explores the personal costs of war.
As we mark the hundredth anniversary of World War I, the time is right for a film about the survivors of that devastating conflict. The first war fought with modern weapons, such as missiles, tanks and machine guns, and a war fought for years in trenches, its horrendous »

The ad originally appeared on the company’s Middle East Facebook page, CNN reports. Nivea was trying to promote its “Invisible for Black and White” deodorant, and featured a woman with long, dark brown hair in a white robe. But the slogan, “White is purity,” triggered backlash on social media.

Rachel Dolezal took part in a live, interactive interview with The New York Times on Tuesday, and shed light on how she came to identify herself as black — and also offered a more nuanced take on how she views herself today.
“I identify as racially human, because really there is one human race,” Dolezal, 39, said when one person questioned the notion that she could be transracial. (In the interview, which streamed live on Facebook, readers could submit questions for Dolezal to answer.)
A day earlier, Dolezal told Today‘s Savannah Guthrie that “I don’t identify as African American, I identify as black. »

Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who made national headlines in 2015 after she pretended to be black, is back in the spotlight thanks to a new memoir titled In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.
In the book, which will be released on March 28, the former Washington NAACP leader doesn’t walk back on her claims that she self-identifies as a black woman, saying that living her life as a black person made her life “infinitely better,” although it did make her feel more “distant and isolated” from white people as she started to embrace more elements of African-American culture. »
- Caitlin Keating
On Monday's Today she said she felt the book was "forced upon" her because she wanted to tell the "whole story" of her life. Dolezal was widely criticized two years ago when it was discovered that she is Caucasian, although she had been claiming she was black and was the president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP.
"My life story was really warped beyond recognition by a lot of the negative press in 2015," said Dolezal. »

Dolezal, who was an NAACP branch president when it was discovered she was born to white parents, appeared on the Today show Monday to promote her new memoir, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.

In 2017, Rachel Dolezal still believes she is a black woman. The former civil rights activist appeared on NBC's Today Monday to promote her book, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World, and spoke to Savannah Guthrie about her racial identity. "I don't identify as African American; I identify as black," Dolezal, 39, said. "I am Pan-African diaspora. I definitely feel like in America—even though race is a social construct, and we've established this in academia and in science—there's still a line drawn in the sand." During a Today interview with Matt Lauer in November 2015, Dolezal acknowledged that she was born to Caucasian parents, but also said she »

Andy Warhol was nothing if not a multi-media maven. Along with his ubiquitous silkscreens and sculpture, he embraced movie-making beginning as early as 1963 with such literal-minded efforts as Haircut (a haircut) and Taylor Mead’s Ass (one hour of exactly what you think) and pretty much closed shop with 1968’s Lonesome Cowboys, a 109 minute western satire that, of all his films, came closest to approximating a traditional tinseltown production.
Essentially Warhol was parodying the Hollywood studio system, rounding up his acolytes and hangers-on, from supermodels to pushers, and casting them as regular performers in a series of deadpan documentaries. Meanwhile in the wilds of Baltimore, Warhol fan John Waters »

The Voice UK coach admitted to People that sons Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 3, turned down his request to sing on the record!
“I wanted them to because they’ve got great voices and sound really good. As they’ve gotten older, they’ve got really nice, really pretty voices — maybe next record … if I can afford them! They’re probably out of my league!” Rossdale, 51, says.

Yesterday finally saw the release of the James Mangold’s highly anticipated Logan into cinemas, a final look at Hugh Jackman in a role he well and truly made his own over the years in numerous X-Men and Wolverine projects. In Jackman’s final stand, this is one ‘superhero’ movie that breaks the mould and refuses to follow convention, truly making this the stand out in the series of spin offs.
So how can Logan director, James Mangold improve on this? Or the question should be – should he even try? Well, on the day of Logan’s release Mangold took to twitter to reply to one eager fan’s plea to him to deliver a version in black and white. His simply reply ‘Workin’ on it’ could this be an unofficial announcement that we can expect to witness this deeply brutal westernesque »

“We’ve been through that, and this is a new day,” the Bush frontman, 51, tells People in the new issue, out Friday.
In August of 2015, Rossdale and Stefani, 47, announced their split after nearly 13 years of marriage; shortly after, the rocker was plagued by reports of infidelity with their longtime nanny.
So is there anything the new Voice UK mentor wants to clear the air about?
“I don’t even even know what the alleged ‘record’ is,” says Rossdale “Some things are private, unbelievably.”
