6 Hollywood Mysteries That Were Never Solved

8 August 2015 5:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Mirror

There’s no business like show business, and there’s no place quite like Hollywood.

The movie business set up shop there back in 1910, meaning there is over a century of history about the place, and it is as storied as the movies themselves. There are countless tales to be told, from the Oscars to Orson Welles, Chaplin to Cruise, and the silent films to summer blockbusters. Almost every aspiring actor, writer, or director wants to make it to Tinseltown; it’s the place where dreams – and careers – are made.

However, look beyond that cinematic sheen, past the stars the on Walk of Fame and the handprints outside of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, and you’ll find something a little less glamourous. Buried beneath the red carpet premieres and A-list events, there is a dark and murky underworld to Hollywood. It’s one that belies its image of being all champagne and caviar, »

New Projects: Clint Eastwood to direct biopic of Captain “Sully” Sullenberger

4 June 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following the success of American Sniper, Clint Eastwood has found his next project, which will once again be a biopic. Eastwood has signed on to direct a movie focusing on airline pilot Captain Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger. Captain Sullenberger rose to prominence in 2009, when he managed to land a plane on the Hudson River following an engine accident, with no casualties as a result of his actions. The screenplay for the film will come from Perfect Stranger scribe Todd Komarnicki, who will adapt the book Highest Duty: My Search For What Really Matters, which was co-authored by Sullenberger himself.

In their announcement of the film, Warner Bros. had this to add.

it will go beyond Sullenberger’s almost impossible and much-heralded achievement of safely landing a jumbo jet on the water, which was captured on video and viewed around the world. But behind the scenes, a drama was unfolding that could »

James Ellroy: The Hollywood Interview

26 May 2015 5:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

I interviewed James Ellroy, the great American noir novelist, at La's venerable Pacific Dining Car in April 2001. We were there to discuss his latest book, The Cold Six Thousand, but wound up tackling a myriad of subjects over our three hour lunch. Ellroy sported a snappy fedora that I said would have looked great on Meyer Lansky. He barked a laugh and removed it, displaying his bald pate. When he looked at my full head of 33 year-old hair, his eyes narrowed: "That thing on your head real or a rug?" "Real," I replied. Ellroy exhaled for what seemed like a full minute, then murmured: "Cocksucker." We were off and running.

Time Machine: Sensational Scarlett J. in Purple

7 May 2015 8:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

When Oscars turn sour: 10 disastrous post-Academy Awards roles

17 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Think that winning an Academy Award provides an actor with a surefire path to unlimited great roles? Think again. Oscars history is filled with stars who've taken home a gold statue only to see all their hard work undone in seconds with a stinker of a follow-up movie.

Digital Spy takes a look at 10 of these instances below...

Halle Berry - Catwoman (2004)

A piercing performance in Monster's Ball won Halle Berry an Oscar in 2002, but a rocky road lied ahead. She followed it up with disastrous Bond movie Die Another Day, hardly any screen time in X-Men 2 and turgid horror Gothika. Oh, and Catwoman... how could we forget Catwoman (believe us, we've tried)?

Jeff Bridges - Tron Legacy (2011)

Jeff Bridges's Oscar victory for Crazy Heart felt more like an acknowledgement for a body of work than that particular role (Crazy Heart is not his best). Thank goodness, then, that »
