Rose Byrne Teams With Oprah For HBO

16 July 2016 3:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Rose Byrne is set to star opposite Oprah Winfrey in HBO's upcoming feature "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks".

Based on Rebecca Skloot's nonfiction best-seller of the same name, the biopic tells the story of Henrietta Lacks (Winfrey), a poor black woman who died of cervical cancer in 1951.

Without her consent, pieces of the tumor that killed her were removed and used for medical exploration and to build a billion-dollar research industry.

Byrne will play Skloot, a young journalist who formed a close bond with Henrietta's charismatic yet complicated daughter Deborah as part of her effort to tell the story of Henrietta's 'immortal' cells.

Winfrey, Alan Ball, Peter Macdissi, Carla Gardini and Lydia Dean Pilcher will executive produce. George C. Wolfe ("Lackawanna Blues," "Angels in America") wrote the screenplay and will direct the film which begins production this summer.

Review: 'The Night Of' gets off to a breathless start with 'The Beach'

10 July 2016 7:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier this week, I published my rave review of HBO's new miniseries The Night Of, and I'm going to put it into the weekly review rotation for its run, starting with thoughts on the first episode, coming up just as soon as I can name two Yankees headed for the Hall of Fame... "Am I really here?" -Naz Because "The Beach" has been available for a few weeks through HBO's On Demand and streaming services, I've gotten to see the early reactions to it, which tend to break down along three paths: 1)That was unbearable to watch because I felt so bad for Naz as his night out went so horribly awry; 2)That was unbearable to watch because Naz acted like such a complete idiot at every turn; 3)Even though I felt bad for Naz, and/or couldn't believe how stupid he kept being, I was riveted by the whole thing. »

Review: 'The Night Of' is the great drama HBO very badly needs right now

5 July 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's his name about a minute into the opening credits of The Night Of: James Gandolfini. That Gandolfini, who died three years ago, is still listed as an executive producer on the new HBO miniseries speaks to the deal he signed way back when he was going to co-star in the project (in a role now played by John Turturro), and to his role as one of the people championing it through development. It also evokes images of a time when HBO owned the Prestige TV game outright, benevolently renting space out to would-be challengers because its position was so strong. That was a long time ago, before the rise of Netflix and all the other Peak TV players, and before HBO skidded into its current rough patch. Executives keep leaving abruptly. Recent dramas have either failed outright (the expensive, star-laden Vinyl got unrenewed last month), imploded quickly (True »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie

15 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Quick Hits• Last Year's Winner: Frances McDormand, "Olive Kitteridge" • Was It an Upset? No• Still Eligible? No• Hot Streak: Other than citing "American Horror Story's" four straight years of nods (with one win for Jessica Lange in 2014), there isn't much of a streak to speak of. So, instead, let's just remember when Meryl Streep won for her landmark performance in "Angels in America" (and hope someone, someday — even if it's Meryl herself — can ascend to such heights again).• Fun Fact: None other than Helen Mirren has the most nominations (10!) and wins (4!) in this category.  In our new era of anthology series, the acting categories for Outstanding Limited Series or a Movie no longer get complete makeovers every year. Yet even though a few other categories will see plenty of old faces, the group of Lead Actress contenders will likely be all but one newbie. The only person nominated from last year who can get. »

HBO’s Lgbt History: The End

11 May 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's the final episode as Manuel has worked his way through all the Lgbt-themed HBO productions. 

I began this project because, after watching and recapping Looking here, I became fascinated with the idea that, with that Andrew Haigh show, the cable network had somehow reached peak gay TV even as it also managed to alienate the very viewers it was trying to coax. I wanted to, in a way, put Looking in context by watching everything HBO had produced and aired that had tackled Lgbt issues.

This required a lot of scavenging—despite their shiny HBOGo and HBO Now ventures, a lot of the network’s older and more obscure TV movies and shows remain unattainable. And so I reached back and watched a lot of not so great TV movies from the early 80s, caught up with key “very special episodes” of their most well-known dramas and comedies, and »

‘Hamilton’ Makes Tony History, Joins Pop Culture Elite

3 May 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hamilton’s” record-breaking haul of 16 Tony nominations this morning was a reminder, if you needed one, that Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit musical is destined to leave a cultural crater.

It got me thinking about the idea of blanket approval, and how warm and fuzzy it can be. The record for Oscar nominations, for example, is 14, shared by 1950’s “All About Eve” and 1997’s “Titanic,” two films separated by nearly five decades. Only eight more films have received 13 nominations, most recently “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” in 2008, while 12 is slightly more common (in the last several years, films like “The King’s Speech,” “Lincoln” and “The Revenant” have managed it).

Certainly, it can be unfortunate when something ignites the cultural consciousness and just barrels its way through its window, only to burn out. I can’t remember the last time I saw “Button,” while “Avatar” is frequently cited as a flash with minimal ripple effect. »

Mark Rylance Joins The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara For Steven Spielberg

12 April 2016 2:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Steven Spielberg is heading into an incredibly busy streak, and he’s taking fellow Academy Award winner Mark Rylance with him. Having cast the actor in 2015’s Bridge Of Spies, to great acclaim, Spielberg then found a spot for him in his forthcoming rendition of Roald Dahl’s The Bfg, and has now confirmed that this fledgling creative partnership will continue with The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara.

Based on the 1997 book by Pulitzer Prize winner David Kertzer, and adapted for the screen by Tony Kushner (Lincoln, Munich, Angels In America), The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara is set in Italy, in 1858, and tells a story of religious and social intrigue that would have ramifications far beyond the community in which it begins.

Here’s the full plot summary:

Denzel's "Fences" Film Scores More Returnees

5 April 2016 7:13 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mykelti Williamson and Russell Hornsby are set to reprise their Broadway roles for the upcoming Denzel Washington-directed film adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer- and Tony-winning 1985 play "Fences" at Paramount Pictures.

The story examines race relations and follows a man, Troy (Washington), who dreamed of being a baseball great but ended up collecting trash.

Troy lives with his wife Rose (Viola Davis), son Cory (Jovan Adepo), and his younger brother Gabriel (Williamson), an ex-soldier whose war injury to his head has caused him psychological damage. Hornsby will again play Lyons, a musician and Troy's son from a previous relationship.

Williamson and Hornsby co-starred with Washington and Davis in a recent Broadway revival of the play that ended up winning Tonys for the two leads. Scott Rudin and Todd Black are producing the film.

Washington is working with playwright Tony Kushner ("Angels In America," "Lincoln") on the film's script with a »

Diverse, awe-inspiring and memorable treasures that have sadly fallen off the radar

The noughties were a tough decade for film music fans. Not only was there the unprecedented loss of four great masters in the form of Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein, Michael Kamen and Basil Poledouris; the nature of the industry itself began to go through some seismic changes, not all of them for the better.

With the art of film scoring becoming ever more processed, driven increasingly by ghost writers, electronic augmentation and temp tracks, prospects looked bleak. However, this shouldn’t shield the fact that there were some blindingly brilliant scores composed during this period. Here’s but a small sampling of them.
