Nicole Kidman Further Explains Her Unusual Oscars Clapping: ‘It’s the Cinderella Thing’

9 May 2017 11:21 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nicole Kidman is only a little bit embarrassed about her unexpected clapping at the Oscars this year.

The actress inspired countless memes after an audience shot caught her clapping with her fingers oddly far apart during the ceremony. Now, the Lion actress is poking fun at her viral moment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, after host Ellen DeGeneres played a looping clip of the clapping technique that has been likened to a seal.

“I do not clap like that, that is a weird lens,” Kidman said amid laughs as she asked the comedian to stop showing the clip.

Ghost In The Shell And Boss Baby Take Another Crack At The Box Office Beast -- The Weekend Warrior

31 March 2017 7:39 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

Two Very Different Movies Look to Divide Up the Weekend Box Office Business

With Disney’s Beauty and the Beast continuing to dominate at the box office with $90 million this past weekend, and Saban’s Power Rangers (Lionsgate) also doing exceedingly well with $40 million in second place, you wouldn’t think anyone would try to release a movie that might get overshadowed by those two blockbusters.

That said, what’s interesting about this weekend is the fact there are two very different movies that are competing very heavily for second place with DreamWorks Animation’s latest animated family film, The Boss Baby (20th Century Fox), taking on the live action English remake of Ghost In The Shell (Paramount), starring Scarlett Johansson.

30 March 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This year, we’ll see him in the next Star Wars film, along with the George Clooney-directed Suburbicon, as well as alongside Christian Bale in The Promise next month, not to mention next year in Alex Garland’s Annihilation next year. He’s now found his next role, according to Deadline.

The Inside Llewyn Davis star is set to lead the WWII drama Operation Finale, which will be directed by Chris Weitz (About a BoyThe Twilight Saga: New Moon). Described as a drama akin to Argo and Munich, it will follow his character as an Israeli spy named Peter Malkin, who hunts down the Nazi general Adolf Eichmann, as scripted by Matthew Orton. Production is expected to begin this fall in Argentina, so we could see it by next year. »

Amber Heard to Star in Agnieszka Holland’s “The Kind Worth Killing”

28 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Amber Heard in “Syrup”: Magnolia Pictures

Amber Heard is teaming up with Polish auteur Agnieszka Holland. Heard will topline Holland’s upcoming crime thriller “The Kind Worth Killing,” Deadline reports. The feature hails from Chockstone Pictures and Nick Wechsler Productions.

The Kind Worth Killing” is based on Peter Swanson’s 2015 novel of the same name, which has earned comparisons to Paula Hawkins’ “The Girl on the Train,” recently adapted into a movie starring Emily Blunt, and Patricia Highsmith’s classic “Strangers on a Train,” the source material for the 1951 Alfred Hitchcock film.

The novel centers on Lily, “a mysterious and stunning killer who meets Ted Severson on a late-night flight from London to Boston,” Deadline summarizes. “Ted confesses that he’s had thoughts about murdering his unfaithful wife. Lily offers to help, and the two form a strange, twisted bond while plotting his wife’s demise.”

“[I’m] really intrigued by this story. It’s full of paradoxes and I love paradoxes,” Holland has said of “The Kind Worth Killing.” “The main heroine is tough as steel, but also as fragile as glass. Is she a victim? A psychopath? An avenger? What a great role for a talented actress!” She continued, “The storyline is unpredictable, the genre feels fresh. A psychological thriller, which sometimes veers off towards black comedy, mixing humor with gore, genuine emotions with a detective mystery.”

Holland’s “In Darkness” was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Oscars, and she received a nod in 1992 for her “Europa Europa” script, which she also directed. Her most recent film, “Spoor,” premiered at the Berlinale this year, where it won the Silver Bear. Holland has directed episodes of series such as “The Killing,” “Treme,” “House of Cards,” and “The Affair.”

Penned by Christopher Kyle (“Serena,” “Alexander”), “The Kind Worth Killing” is being produced by Wechsler, Paula Mae Schwartz, and Steve Schwartz.

Heard’s credits include “The Adderall Diaries,” “The Danish Girl,” and “Magic Mike Xxl.” She’ll play Mera, the Queen of Atlantis, in the highly anticipated “Justice League” movie, opening November 17.

Amber Heard to Star in Agnieszka Holland’s “The Kind Worth Killing” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

War Machine, First They Killed My Father, Bright among roster of titles scheduled to launch this year.

One of the biggest open secrets in Hollywood was confirmed on Tuesday as it emerged Scott Stuber, the former vice-chairman of worldwide production at Universal, will head Netflix’s original film initiative.

One of the jobs that the general public doesn’t pay that much attention to — but probably should — is that of the cinematographer. If you think a film looks gorgeous and you’re able to get swept away by what you’re seeing on the screen, that’s all thanks to this man or woman’s work behind the scenes. Turns out, though, you can even see these folks showcase their talent on social media.

Since the role of cinematographer is often referred to as the director of photography — shortened to Dp or Dop — it only makes sense that we hone in Instagram as that’s one popular online platform dedicated specifically to photos. Let’s take a look at 16 of the cinematographers who are utilizing Instagram to showcase more of their work and giving us a glimpse of »
