The Furniture: Matte Paintings at the End of an Era

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Over the course of the past year, I’ve done an informal retrospective series on the Best Production Design nominees of 1967. It isn’t an especially “New Hollywood” lineup, despite being the year of “Pictures at a Revolution.” Four of the nominees are lush period pieces, three of them lengthy musicals. They often feel like extravagantly-designed chaos, whirlwinds of sets and props that spin out of control. This is true of both the hilarious brawls of The Taming of the Shrew and the dated, stereotype-laden adventures of Thoroughly Modern Millie. Camelot, the winner, manages to split the difference between Old Hollywood excess and New Hollywood sexuality.

The final two films, both Best Picture nominees, are a bit less of a thrill. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and Doctor Dolittle are,

Howards End Trailer: Hayley Atwell Unearths a Secret in Starz Miniseries — Plus: Find Out When It'll Premiere

Howards End Trailer: Hayley Atwell Unearths a Secret in Starz Miniseries — Plus: Find Out When It'll Premiere
Even though Agent Carter’s no longer on the case, Hayley Atwell is still getting to the bottom of things.

Take the newly released trailer for Starz’s adaptation of Howards End, E.M. Forster’s 1910 novel about three families in turn-of-the-century England. Marvel’s Agent Carter alum Atwell plays Margaret Schlegel, an intelligent and independent sort who lives with her sister Helen (played by The Catch‘s Philippa Coulthard) and brother Tibby (Black Mirror‘s Alex Lawther) and who — among other intrigues — becomes involved in drama surrounding the widowed Henry Wilcox (Ripper Street‘s Matthew Macfadyen).

Outlander Finale: Jamie and Claire Race to Thwart Geillis' Plan in New Photos
Know what’s scarier than a mad witch with a mission? A mad witch with a mission… and a deadline.

In these newly released photos from Outlander‘s upcoming season finale (Sunday, 8/7c), Geillis Duncan Abernathy looks nonplussed as Young Ian struggles with his captor and seems to curse her very name. And why should the time traveler worry? As we saw in the previous episode, she’s unlocked the Brahan Seer prophecy — thanks to Margaret — and the events of the finale will help the crazy murderess clarify her plan.

So it’s no wonder, then, that Jamie and Claire

Get Out Producer Jason Blum Says He'd Pay Money for President Trump to See Provocative Movie
If President Donald Trump is interested in a movie night, Jason Blum has a suggestion.

The producer of Get Out, this year’s smash horror written and directed by Jordan Peele, told People at Monday’s Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City that he would happily open his wallet for Trump to see the film.

“I would bet any amount of money he had not seen it, but I’d pay any amount of money for him to see it,” Blum says, before adding, “Well, not any amount.”

The film follows Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya), a young black

Comedies Speak Truth to Power in Golden Globes Race

Comedies Speak Truth to Power in Golden Globes Race
Typically, the Golden Globe Award for best motion picture comedy/musical has been a mixed bag. Only once in the last decade has the victor — 2012’s “The Artist” — gone on to win the best picture Oscar. And, in 2015, “Birdman” lost to “The Grand Budapest Hotel” only to conquer the Golden Globe best pic drama winner “Boyhood” for top Oscar honors. Last year’s Oscar nail-biter pitted Globes comedy/musical winner “La La Land” against drama winner “Moonlight” — and the outcome of that contest produced an infamous finale to the night.

However, this year has flipped that script. The ugly duckling genre has transformed into a glorious swan with a juicy competition in the works. Front-runners include: “Get Out,” “Lady Bird,” “Battle of the Sexes,” “The Big Sick” and “I, Tonya.” With other potential nominees “Downsizing,” “The Greatest Showman,” “The Disaster Artist,” “Baby Driver” and “Beauty and the Beast,” a vibrant category rises, frequently reflecting

‘Get Out’ Awards Category Dilemma: Film Defies Easy Labels, Cast Says

‘Get Out’ Awards Category Dilemma: Film Defies Easy Labels, Cast Says
Despite the eruption of controversy over the nomination of “Get Out” in the Golden Globe’s best musical or comedy category, the picture’s cast and producers appeared to have taken the social media furor in stride Friday night.

At a celebration for “Get Out” at Hollywood’s Lombardi house, producer Jason Blum said the film defies a neat category or label – and that’s a strength.

“It is all things: satire. It’s an action movie. It’s a comedy. It’s a drama. It’s a thriller. It’s a horror movie,” Blum told Variety. “That’s what makes it great, is that you can’t put it in a box.”

The critical response to the genre film has been very inspiring, Blum said, in part because it has brought an ongoing conversation about structural racism to the fore.

“The movie is making people think that you can really use genre to tell very, very

Project Runway Finale Recap: Did the Right Designer Win Season 16?
The time has come, Project Runway fans. Every challenge, every sacrifice, every impromptu funeral for a dead cat found on the street has led to this, the Season 16 finale.

With the sting of Kenya’s elimination still thick in the air, the remaining four designers — Ayana, Brandon, Kentaro and Margarita — presented their final collections at New York Fashion Week. Last week’s episode gave us the gist of the designers’ collections (I haven’t stopped thinking about Brandon’s damn flamingo print all week), but the finale allowed us to see them in action. And they looked damn good.

If this ship’s a rockin’… you can go ahead and knock. Or do whatever else you like. Because this week’s Outlander takes place almost entirely on a ship, and it rocks, sways and bobs. A lot.

And because of that, James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Landlubber Fraser is a bit green — and worse — throughout the hour.

Eminem Teams With Beyonce for New Comeback Song 'Walk on Water': Listen
Guess who's back, back again. 

Eminem has returned to the rap game with his first official release since 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Delivered with Em's signature brand of introspect, "Walk on Water" is a down-tempo, piano-backed track that makes a splash with Beyonce'sangelic vocals on the chorus. Listen below! 

Eminem is set to perform the track live in London at the MTV EMAs on Nov. 12. No word yet whether Queen Bey is set to join, but the rapper is already nominated in two categories at the Rita Ora-hosted ceremony: Best Hip Hop and Best Live.

Project Runway Recap: The Final Cut — Plus, Who Was Inspired by a Dead Cat?

Thursday’s Project Runway, the last episode before next week’s Season 16 finale, presented the remaining designers with one final twist. But first, we need to talk about Kentaro.

More specifically, we need to rehash Tim Gunn’s trip to Los Angeles, during which Kentaro revealed the b-a-n-a-n-a-s inspiration behind the song he composed for his runway show at New York Fashion Week: “I found a dead cat on the street. After I buried the cat, I put my ear to the ground, and this is the kind of sound I heard.”

AFI Fest ‘Curates’ the Year in Film

AFI Fest ‘Curates’ the Year in Film
Over the past decade, the AFI Film Festival has grown into something of an x-factor in the thick of award season. Similar to the earlier New York Film Festival, the Hollywood event has hosted late-breaking world premieres of films that have gone on to awards berths or major box office success, from “Selma” to “The Big Short,” “American Sniper,” “Moana,” “The Fighter” and “Lincoln.” This year the festival, which runs from Nov. 9-16 at the Tcl Chinese Theatre, initially planned to close with a first screening of Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World.”

After a flood of sexual assault allegations surfaced involving Kevin Spacey — who portrayed J. Paul Getty in the film — Scott and Sony Pictures pulled the film, and now plan to reshoot it with Christopher Plummer in Spacey’s place. Yet even before this shocking sequence of events, AFI was already embracing a different approach.

American Horror Story: What You Need to Know About Manson Cult Member Linda Kasabian

  • BuzzSugar
American Horror Story: Cult draws an interesting parallel between Winter Anderson and Linda Kasabian (both played by Billie Lourd) in the latest episode, "Charles (Manson) in Charge," showing how they are both turning on their cult leaders because they don't have a stomach for the crimes being committed in the leader's name. But just who is Kasabian? Linda Kasabian ran away from her small New Hampshire town when she was 16, married a man she barely knew, divorced, married again, and gave birth to a daughter, all before she was 20 years old. Her second husband eventually took Kasabian and their daughter to Los Angeles, which is where she fell in with Manson's crowd.
