First Trailer For The Revenant – Will Leonardo DiCaprio Finally Win An Oscar?

17 July 2015 7:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Written and directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, shot by Emmanuel Lubezki (a pairing that dominated this year’s Oscars for their work on Birdman) and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, there’s not really much of a question whether The Revenant is going to be any good. Heck, it’s pretty damn certain this’ll be great – the latest trailer (viewable below) has just dropped and it looks incredible; there’s little in the way of plot, but the teaser sets both the tone and scope of this western thriller brilliantly.

No, the big question about the movie is whether it’ll be the film to finally get DiCaprio his Oscar.

It’s become a running joke in recent years that one of the greatest living actors (seriously) has been consistently snubbed at the Academy Awards – he’s only been nominated four times for acting (and »

8 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 2015 Oscar Predictions Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are diving into the Cold War for their newest collaboration, "Bridge of Spies." The film, which is set for release this fall, is a dramatic wartime thriller based on true events. It tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Amy Ryan ("Gone Baby Gone"), Alan Alda ("The Aviator") and Mark Rylance ("Wolf Hall") head up the impressive supporting cast. Expectations on this one are about as high as you'd expect. Along with an awards-friendly October release date, "Bridge of Spies" has the Coen Brothers tapped as co-screenwriters and Thomas Newman as composer. This is also Spielberg's first directorial job since "Lincoln," a massive critical and commercial »

Watch: Video Explores The Films Of Martin Scorsese Through His Creative Use Of Closeups

1 July 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Guns, cocaine, money, jewelry, food, flashbulbs---put all those things together and what do you get? Well, they could either be key ingredients to a dangerous night out, a wild party, or… a Martin Scorsese film. Yes, with nearly 25 Scorsese films in 50 years, we are all pretty aware of the content that’s typically featured in the majority of his cinema. There’s perhaps no better way to highlight Scorsese’s (or his characters’) obsessions than the use of the close-up, a shot the director has strategically deployed quite often throughout his career. And thanks to Vimeo user Jorge Luengo, who put together this following compilation, we get to see nearly every close-up featured in Scorsese’s films with this 6-minute video. The real fun in this compilation is attempting to pinpoint which film is featured in each shot. Sometimes it’s fairly obvious: a close-up of an airplane dashboard is most likely from “The Aviator. »

Emmys: On the Ireland Set of 'Penny Dreadful' as Josh Hartnett, Eva Green Reveal Their Biggest Challenges

10 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in a special Emmy issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. John Logan is no stranger to time travel. As a screenwriter, he has journeyed to ancient Japan (for The Last Samurai), 1940s Hollywood (The Aviator) and 1930s Paris (Hugo). But as showrunner on Showtime's Penny Dreadful, a horror-drama mashup set in London during the late 1890s, he's finding himself struggling with the space-time continuum in ways that would have H.G. Wells throwing clocks out the window. "The biggest challenge of this show is the time-machine quality of filming one episode while editing

Quentin Tarantino to Retrofit Theaters to Accomodate 'Hateful Eight' in 70mm

9 June 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We know that Quentin Tarantino loves celluloid and that he shot his latest film, "The Hateful Eight" in 70mm (actually Ultra Panavision 70, to be exact). But the problem is most theaters are now equipped with digital systems and are unprepared to properly exhibit the film.  Read More: Here's the Best Advice from Cinematographers at CineGear News has come from CineGear Expo by way of cinematographer Bill Bennett who, after a presentation of "Hateful Eight" test footage tweeted that Tarantino plans to help put 70mm projectors equipped with anamorphic gear into 50 theaters worldwide so the film can be screened properly. It's worth noting that Bennett didn't shoot "Hateful Eight." That was three-time Oscar winner Robert Richardson ("JFK," "The Aviator" and "Hugo"). The footage was projected in 70mm anamorphic film and included actor close-ups, interiors and various exteriors in a variety of lighting conditions, »

Lionsgate acquires 'Genius,' quietly amasses intriguing awards slate

13 May 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Another pick-up at the Cannes Film Festival for Lionsgate this morning was Michael Grandage's "Genius," which feels like awards bait given the subject matter and the talent involved. The film tells the story of Scribner book editor Max Perkins, who oversaw works by legends like Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald in his time. The script, based on the book by A. Scott Berg, was written by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan ("Gladiator," "The Aviator," "Hugo"). Colin Firth stars in the film as Perkins and there's a roll call of stars playing those top literary names. Jude Law is in as Wolfe, Guy Pearce is Fitzgerald and Dominic West is Hemingway. Nicole Kidman also stars as costume designer Aline Bernstein, who had a four-year relationship with Wolfe and possessed some of his unpublished manuscripts at the time of his death. Laura Linney, meanwhile, plays Perkins' wife, Louise Saunders. »

10 Worst Ever Accent Fails In Film

13 May 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

A24

The overpowering urge to do an accent has swept over us all at some point. Following up on said urge may lead to laughter or ridicule. In some rare cases it may lead to a compliment. For an actor, often praised more than any one person should naturally be praised in a lifetime, similar compulsions arise. Frequently, the only difference between our provincial imitations and those by some of the Hollywood elite is a $10 million performance fee.

Even the greatest performers have derailed their careers and put off movie goers with bad accents. It seems to be one of the riskiest ventures for an actor to take. Weight is added to this when, if an actor is guilty of doing a terrible accent, people wonder out loud why the film’s producers could not hire a local.

For many of the best known actors, it is especially tricky to »

Cate Blanchett Opens the Closet Door with Lesbian Romance ‘Carol’

12 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not surprising that “Carol” was locked away in Hollywood’s development closet for 15 years. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s scandalous 1952 novel “The Price of Salt,” Todd Haynes’ latest movie is a double whammy by industry standards: it’s headlined by two women, who fall in love with each other.

The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, arrives at a pivotal, yet paradoxical, time for female-driven stories. There has been a string of hits this year that celebrate female empowerment — from “Insurgent” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” to “Cinderella,” and the upcoming “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and the final installment of “The Hunger Games.” That said, gender inequality both in front of and behind the camera is a hot-button issue in the global entertainment business.

As one of cinema’s most prominent stars, Blanchett, whose recent roles include the evil stepmother in “Cinderella, »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Losers on the Road in the Neverland of California Wineries and Neurotic Peter Pan-ish Males

8 May 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sideways' movie, with Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church 'Sideways' movie review: California winery tour follows conventional road to male maturity With the 1999 Matthew Broderick-Reese Witherspoon vehicle Election, Alexander Payne displayed a flair for satirical comedy the likes of which would have turned Billy Wilder greener (with envy) than the Sideways poster found further below in this commentary. With the 2002 Jack Nicholson star vehicle About Schmidt, Payne demonstrated that his comedic flair could go the way of Wilder's in fluff like Sabrina and Love in the Afternoon: artificial, cutesy, bland.* In Sideways, Payne opted for the safer About Schmidt route – which may explain the film's enormous popularity with critics and audiences alike. For my part, I found his adaptation (with Jim Taylor) of Rex Pickett's novel to be an overlong, moralistic, and thoroughly unconvincing effort.
