22 May 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Starburns Industries, the animation company behind Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s Oscar-animated 2015 feature film “Anomalisa,” have unveiled a beautiful black and white music video for Richard Edwards’ song “Moonwrapped,” off his debut solo album, “Lemon Cotton Candy Sunset.” Edwards is also the frontman of the indie rock band Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s.

“Moonwrapped” was produced and directed by Sofia Astrom, recipient of the 2015 Women in Film and Tiffany & Co. scholarship from the American Film Institute. The scholarship is awarded annually to one well deserving female director studying at AFI Conservatory.

“When I got Richard’s song and the handwritten description of his concept for the video, I instantly felt like I had to do this project,” Astrom said. “Starburns gave me the keys to the castle (literally, the studio is a castle! »

Tom Holland & Daisy Ridley Zombie Flick From Director Doug Liman Shoots This Summer

12 May 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Young adult novels may have waned in recent years — Hunger Games is finished, Maze Runner delayed, and the Divergent series has petered out — but that doesn’t necessarily make the prospects any less appealing to studios. Plus, given the right talent, any one of these books could be made into a kickass movies, and given the talent on board the upcoming Chaos Walking.

The film is based on the novel of the Chaos Walking book series from writer Patrick Ness, and if you’re unfamiliar, here is the official synopsis of the first book, The Knife Of Never Letting Go:

“Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, »

Dear Hollywood: 9 Top Women Cinematographers Who Are Ready to Direct

10 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Here’s how studios say they see it: Sure, we really want to hire women directors. But there’s almost no studio movie that isn’t big budget, and we can’t find women who have the experience necessary to handle the really big movies. (Never mind Colin Trevorrow. Or Marc Webb. Or Gareth Edwards. Or Jon Watts.)

Of course, that logic is a vicious cycle at best, but here’s a chance to break it. Director Reed Morano’s dazzling execution of the first three episodes of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” suggests another excellent source for future women directors: top cinematographers.

Today, Amazon Studios announced it has signed an exclusive first-look deal with indie powerhouses Bona Fide Productions (“Little Miss Sunshine”), Le Grisbi Productions (“Birdman”) and Killer Films (“Boys Don’t Cry”). Amazon is already doing business with all three entities – it’s about to unveil “Wonderstruck” (Killer) and “The Only Living Boy in New York” (Bona Fide) at Cannes – and the news is yet another sign that the company will continue to finance high-quality independent filmmaking from some of the most revered American directors out there.

Great Job, Internet!: The playful magic of Michel Gondry’s collaborations with The White Stripes

2 May 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s been almost a decade since the last White Stripes album came out, and much of the curiosity that accompanied their early years has faded into trivia, especially as Jack White continues his slow transformation into a hat-wearing record-industry barnacle à la Bono or Rick Rubin. But it’s also a good time to revisit that rush of interesting music, prolifically released for a few years, as well as the group’s ironclad sonic and visual aesthetics. A huge part of that was the duo’s series of videos with director Michel Gondry, mostly released in the early ‘00s as the director was working up toward his 2004 masterpiece Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. A new video from Film Radar digs into that fruitful collaboration, figuring out what made it all work and what we can still learn from it.

The video explores three of their five videos ...

So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.”

Stunning new trailer for The Bad Batch starring Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves & Jim Carrey

13 April 2017 10:18 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Neon has released the new official trailer for the upcoming post-apocalyptic film The Bad Batch, which you can view below!

The film is the latest from acclaimed filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour, the director of A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, the 2014 vampire film which won critical acclaim as well as countless awards. Her new film tells the story of a young woman (Suki Waterhouse) who is captured in a Texas wasteland by a group of cannibals who take her into their way of life and she soon begins to adapt to it. The film made its debut last year at both the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals and we like many others are incredibly excited to see what Amirpour has come up with for her sophomore effort.

Michel Gondry and Jon Brion Team Up For Eternally Sunny Yogurt Ad — Watch

10 April 2017 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry and composer Jon Brion have teamed up again for a whimsical ad that is all sunshine and no feverish heartache.

The commercial is from Greek yogurt company Chobani, and it’s called “Fruit Symphony.” Short and uplifting, it shows musicians playing fruit instruments as a choir of Chobani employees sing Brion’s arrangement of Burt Bacharach’s “What the World Needs Now.”

The ad opens with a coconut sliced in half acting as a high-hat cymbal, and goes on to show some sort of peach synthesizer and a banana piano. (Bananiano?) As a man rubbing a mango smiles at a drummer tapping an apple, Chobani’s message reads: “Food brings us together.”

Perhaps best known for “Eternal Sunshine,” Gondry also directed “The Science of Sleep” and, more recently, a »

Michel Gondry Literally Delivers Dreams in Charming FedEx Commercial — Watch

4 April 2017 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michel Gondry is back, and he’s brought another dream world with him.

The director has teamed up with FedEx to direct their latest commercial, conveniently titled “Dreams.” As with his Oscar-winning film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” Gondry explores the fantastical ways that our minds operate and the landscapes that we create when we reimagine how the world works. In this case, it comes up with a fanciful explanation of how FedEx is able to deliver packages — full of our heart’s desires for plush toys, killer shoes or electronics — so damn fast.

Watch: Michel Gondry Delivers Dreams in New Commercial for FedEx

4 April 2017 5:37 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Whether it is attempting to visually convey them or bring an illusory quality to his tone, director Michel Gondry often lives in the world of dreams. It’s only fitting then that when the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director was hired by FedEx for their latest ad campaign, that he’d bring a fantastical feel.

The one-minute spot, titled Dream, depicts the contents of various packages coming to life as they get shipped around the world. Following last fall’s White Stripes video, Gondry hasn’t announced his next film yet, so for now we’ll have to enjoy these short snippets of creativity. Check out the ad below (via Ad Week), along with a talk from last year about his latest film, Microbe & Gasoline.

‘The Discovery’: Why Jason Segel Emerged From His Self-Imposed Acting Exile to Star in Charlie McDowell’s Dark Netflix Drama

31 March 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Even five years ago, it would have been hard to imagine Jason Segel, the Muppet-loving, butt-baring star of modern comedy classics like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Knocked Up” as some kind of Sundance darling, but that’s exactly how the actor found his unexpected second act.

When Segel was picked to star as the lauded and immensely troubled late author David Foster Wallace in James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour,” the filmmaker’s decision to cast the lovably goofy “This is 40” and “How I Met Your Mother” star was met with plenty of skepticism. Segel, however, dove deeply into preparing for the role, listening to the recordings of journalist David Lipsky (played by Jesse Eisenberg in the 2015 drama) and watching clips of Foster online to get a sense of the writer’s presence. He even started his own book club to read and discuss Foster’s “Infinite Jest. »

Focus Features used CinemaCon to celebrate its 15th anniversary with a celebratory luncheon. Judging by its show reel, Focus plans to spend the year doing what it knows best: Making movies designed for awards-season release.

Dame Judi Dench, who earned two of her seven Oscar nominations in Stephen Frears movies, reunites with her “Philomena” and “Mrs. Henderson Presents” filmmaker on lush period drama “Victoria and Abdul” (from Oscar factory Working Title), a true story about the elderly Queen Victoria, who, bored being the world’s longest-serving monarch, formed an unlikely friendship with Abdul Karim (Ali Fasal), who she makes her Indian Secretary. It’s written by the Oscar-nominated Lee Hall (“Billy Elliott”).

Quote of the Day: Kate Winslet Talks Self-Acceptance & How to Rise Above Body Shaming

24 March 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Kate Winslet in “The Dressmaker

Kate Winslet is speaking out about body shamers and the value of self-esteem. “I had been bullied at school,” the Oscar winner told an audience of children at a recent We Day U.K. charity event in London. The Evening Standard reports that the actress revealed that she was called “Blubber.” “[They] teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard. Laughed at me,” she recalled.

“I wasn’t the prettiest,” Winslet shared. “I was even told that I might be lucky in my acting if I was happy to settle for the fat-girl parts. [Casting agents] would say, ‘You’re just not what we’re looking for, Kate.’ I’d hear that a lot.”

But the fact that Winslet is a household name should tell you just how terrible these casting agents were at their job. They failed to notice a world-class talent because of their superficial expectations about what an actress should — and could — look like.

“I didn’t lock myself away and give up on my dream,” Winslet emphasized. “I fought back. I had to ignore the negative comments. I had to believe in myself. I had to choose to rise above it all, and I had to work hard. You have to be indestructible to do what you love, and believe that you are worth it. And sometimes that’s the hardest part,” she admitted.

“One day, I was cast as Rose in ‘Titanic,’” Winslet said of the role that made her an international star. “The most unlikely candidate — Kate from the sandwich shop in Reading — suddenly acting in one of the biggest movies ever made! You can be from anywhere and you can do anything, believe it. It is possible to overcome your fears.”

“I learned to embrace my flaws, to make no apology for who I am,” she told the attendees. “I dug deep and I decided that I simply wouldn’t listen when they said my body didn’t fit. This is who I am, the real me, Kate from Reading.”

As inspiring as Winslet’s message is, it’s important to remember that it’s 2017 and pretty much every Hollywood actress still faces relentless scrutiny about their weight — whether they are being told they are too fat or too thin, though let’s be real, it’s usually the former. While more and more people are beginning to learn about body shaming — and recognizing its toxic causes and effects — the problem is far from over.

And we all know this bullshit certainly doesn’t just happen in the entertainment industry. Women’s body sizes are policed everywhere, all the time, and it’s unacceptable. Kudos to Winslet for ignoring her critics and continuing to pursue her dream. Widely considered to be one of the best actors of her generation, she knew what she was capable of — even if her peers and casting agents refused to see it. We’re grateful to see Winslet speaking candidly about what were obviously difficult times. Her message of self-acceptance is an important one.

Winslet has received a total of seven Oscar nominations, and won in 2009 for “The Reader.” Her other credits include Jocelyn Moorhouse’s “The Dressmaker,” “Steve Jobs,” “Mildred Pierce,” “Revolutionary Road,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” and “Sense and Sensibility.”

Quote of the Day: Kate Winslet Talks Self-Acceptance & How to Rise Above Body Shaming was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Can early year releases truly compete for Oscar attention?

22 March 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

One of the more unfair aspects of the awards season is that it truly isn’t a 12 month season. Only certain months tend to have Oscar contenders released in them. If you want Academy Award consideration, the early months of a given year are essentially no man’s land. The list of films nominated from January, February, and/or March is a short one. It can happen, but the odds are nowhere near if you’re a September, October, November, and/or December release. There’s just no contest. That got me thinking…will it change? Has there been progress lately? Why does it happen? Follow along as I ponder all this and more today. Historically, the biggest early year release, Oscar wise, is The Silence of the Lambs. Other nominees include Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a few Woody Allen pictures like Radio Days, etc. They’re not all of the ones, »
