‘Genius’ Cast and Crew Tout Albert Einstein, Predict Historical Figure For Season 2

21 April 2017 12:38 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Albert Einstein was the man of the hour at the premiere of National Geographic’s first-ever scripted series, “Genius,” at New York City’s Tribeca Performing Arts Center on Thursday night.

The 10-part miniseries, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s 2007 biography “Einstein, His Life and Universe,” follows the famed theoretical physicist in two stages of his life. Johnny Flynn plays Einstein as a 26-year-old physics student first questioning Isaac Newton’s laws of motion, while Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush stars as the scientist in his later years as he flees his home in Germany at the beginning of World War II.

“We all understand Einstein had a miracle year with four great papers and E = mc2 and changed everything, but we don’t understand the barriers and challenges that he faced,” director Ron Howard said of the series that he executive produced alongside Brian Grazer.

17 Shocks and Surprises from the 2017 Cannes Lineup, From ‘Twin Peaks’ to Netflix and Vr

13 April 2017 5:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For such a highly anticipated event, the Cannes Film Festival tends to contain a fairly predictable lineup: The Official Selection focuses on established auteurs whose work lands a coveted slot at the flashy gathering on autopilot. That was certainly the case last year, when the 2016 edition opened with a Woody Allen movie and featured new work from the likes of Pedro Almodovar, Nicolas Winding Refn, the Dardennes brothers and Olivier Assayas.

But we live in unpredictable times, and judging by today’s announcement of the Official Selection for Cannes 2017, even the world’s most powerful festival isn’t impervious to change. This year’s Cannes is filled with surprises: television and virtual reality, some intriguing non-fiction selections, and a whole lot of unknown quantities that push the festival in fresh directions.

That’s not to say that there aren’t a few familiar names that stand out. Todd Haynes is »

Ron Howard (you probably don't need reminding that his directorial CV includes The Da Vinci Code, Splash, Appolo 13, A Beautiful Mind and last summer’s Beatles concert movie Eight Days A Week, do you?) is lined up to direct and produce a politically-charged film by the name of Hillbilly Elegy, Variety reports.

Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance was published by Harper Collins and topped the Nyt list twice, in August 2016 and January 2017.

The author was raised by his strong and larger than life grandmother in Middletown, »

Faith, Hope, & Clarity: Hollywood Again Shows Respect in Films for Spiritual Ideas

5 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like a prodigal son, Hollywood is again returning to religion.

Since the 1980s, Hollywood has been criticized (with justification) for depicting any religious believer as mindless, evil or both. Filmmakers this year treat them with respect.

Silence” and “Hacksaw Ridge” daringly center around devout Christians. Religious beliefs have a positive effect on the lead characters in other 2016 films, including “Fences,” “Hidden Figures,” “Jackie,” “Mr. Church,” even “The Conjuring 2.”

Studios have their own belief system, and it’s based on recent hits. Hollywood loves stories about an individual whose principles are challenged, but usually the protagonist is a superhero, cop or animated creature.

Silence” depicts the culture clash of Western Christians with Japanese. The long legacy of the “white savior” is turned upside down, and the film raises issues of faith, doubt, personal integrity, and the fine line between belief and stubborn pride. To its credit, “Silence” raises questions that audience members must answer. »
