Pedro holding up a copy of his "Bad Education" screenplayToday's Useless Trivia!

Only Pedro has won for writing (though Bird is also a multiple Oscar-winner) but it's a neat and weird coincidence, yes?
What's your favorite Almodóvar screenplay (besides Talk To Her that is which rightfully scooped up the Oscar)?
Do you think Brad Bird deserved to win Original Screenplay in his years at bat (2004 and 2007)

They are joined by Stephanie Leonidas, Paul Kaye, Sebastian Street, Stuart Brennan and Sophie Kennedy-Clarke in the first feature film directed by Martha Pinson, Scorsese's long-time script supervisor.
"I'm honoured to join Martha in her directorial debut," said Scorsese.

Pinson added: "Tomorrow is a great script. The dialogue is brilliant and believable; the reversals and surprises are well placed and powerful. The characters and situations are vividly drawn.
"It explores the difficulty of moving on from loses and injuries, to forge a life, to find sustaining work, and experience love. »
In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Nobody is talking about "American Sniper," which sits low in our predictions with 100/1 odds. To be fair, nobody has seen it yet, but that's also true of other films with better odds like "Unbroken" and "Gone Girl." Even sight unseen, "Sniper" may be worth taking seriously as a contender. It opens on Christmas Day and is directed by Clint Eastwood, who pulled off a last-minute Oscar ambush 10 years ago when "Million Dollar Baby" took the top prize. Could "American Sniper" do the same? -Break- Who got Best Actor Oscars boost from Tiff: Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, ...? For a while, 2004 seemed like the year Martin Scorsese would finally get his overdue first Oscar, for the Howard Hughes biopic "The Aviator," and that early momentum led to wins for the film at the Golden Globes, BAFTA Awards, and PGA Awards. But "Million Dollar Baby," which was filmed just a...' »
As we bid goodbye to the Summer action blockbusters, we say hello once more to the serious slate of films looking to pick up award gold in the last few months of the year. And what better subject matter than the true story or the biographical or “bio-pic”? Maybe a good mix of the two, and since Hollywood enjoys celebrating itself why not tackle one of its greatest stars? Though not as highly merchandised today at contemporaries Bogart, Monroe, or Hepburn (either one), few stars shone as brightly in that golden age than Errol Flynn, king of the silver screen swashbucklers. Now Flynn was played by the similarly dashing Jude Law ten years ago in the Howard Hughes story, The Aviator. And previously he was parodied wonderfully by Peter O’Toole as Alan Swann in the raucous comic gem My Favorite Year in 1982 and by former Bond Timothy Dalton as »

There was a time not too long ago when Martin Scorsese was thought of as a critic’s darling, not a crowd-pleaser. However, since The Aviator hit the $100 million mark in 2005, three of his other DiCaprio films (The Departed, Shutter Island, The Wolf of Wall Street) crossed that box office threshold. More popular than ever, the 71-year-old can make the sorts of pictures he wants. While he is about to start filming his long-brewing Silence and premiere his documentary The 50-Year Argument at the Toronto Film Festival, word is out that the master director is now attached to make a film about the legendary punk group The Ramones.
The rockers’ various estates are now in a deal to give archival material to creative sources, including Scorsese, says Jeff Jampol, who co-manages the band’s estate. “Everybody [from the families] is cooperation and moving in one direction together as a team,” Jampol told Billboard. »

How classic can you get? It turns out Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" with Bradley Cooper will get a limited bow on Christmas Day before going wide on January 16. That puts it smack dab in the middle of the upcoming Oscar season, and gives Universal a little bit of competition on being last pony out of the gate with "Unbroken." It's kind of interesting watching everyone make their moves this season. There seems to be a divide between all the films hitting the early festivals, then a bit of a gap (save for wide launches like "Fury" and "Interstellar"), then a bunch of films content with landing very late in the game. When "American Hustle" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" garnered a lot of awards steam last year after dropping at the last moment (screening in late-November), it changed a lot of thinking…for the time being, that is. »

Martin Scorsese is one of those directors who you can tell has a clear vision of what he wants to see up on the screen. While some directors might have vague ideas that eventually are realized within a healthy proximity to the images they want to convey (usually found in post), Scorsese is one of those minds who are not satisfied until every small detail of said vision is on display in meticulous detail. Think back to the opening of Hugo, with the beautiful imagery of Paris leading into a gorgeous, long take sweeping through a crowded train platform . all in gorgeous 3D to boot. That's not an accident, that's the result of carefully planned imagery, which Scorsese has long had a knack for, even when he was only 11. Cinephilia And Beyond reprinted some storyboards that the director of Goodfellas, The Aviator, and The Departed drew up for a grand »
Leonardo DiCaprio does not live a life like you or I. We spend hours erratically swiping left on a series of interchangeable Tinder matches; Leo travels the world on the arm of the world's most gorgeous models. We are lucky if our coworkers like our Instagrams every once and a while; Leo collaborates with visionary directors like Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan. And while we're spending our summers working 9-to-5 in an air conditioned office somewhere, DiCaprio frolics shirtless with a Super Soaker, looking like a #bestlife version of Howard Hughes at the end of The Aviator. But there is one small consolation: Unlike DiCaprio, »

Disney has announced Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will hit theaters on July 7, 2017. No other details are known though Johnny Depp is expected to star and, for the moment, Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still attached to direct. After leaving the Ant-Man production, it looks like Edgar Wright has found his next film in Baby Driver, a crime-themed action thriller of which he will write and was first attached to back in 2008 when it was referred to as a wild spin on the action and crime genre which will be set in the Us. Nothing else is known at this time. Deadline Cameron Crowe's untitled new film starring Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper was set to hit theaters on Christmas Day, but has now been bumped to May 29, 2015. I guess Sony thinks they may have a summer hit on their hands and not much of an awards player. Nothing wrong with that. »

The Venice International Film Festival, now celebrating its 71st birthday, has named film editor Thelma Schoonmaker and film director Frederick Wiseman as recipients of the Golden Lions for Lifetime Achievement. The Board of Directors of the Biennale di Venezia, under chair Paolo Baratta, and festival director Alberto Barbera, made the final decision. One of the most lauded editors in the business, Schoonmaker won three Oscars for Scorsese films "Raging Bull," "The Aviator" and "The Departed," and continues to promote the films and writings of late husband Michael Powell. Schoonmaker is the first editor to receive the Golden Lion. Intrepid indie doc filmmaker Frederick Wiseman, no stranger to Venice, has made over 40 films that capture everyday human reality around the world, from "Titicut Follies" in 1967 to "Public Housing" in 1997, and new masterpieces "La danse" in 2009 and 2013's "At Berkeley."
