A heavenly role by Amber Wilkinson

41 minutes ago | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Ewan McGregor as Yeshua in Last Days In Desert Ewan McGregor gets to play the ultimate good guy in his latest movie - Jesus.

The Last Days in the Desert re-imagines Christ in his final period of fasting and solitude before he went back to Jerusalem to be crucified, and sees him tempted by a demon - also played by McGregor. The film sees Jesus, referred to as Yeshua, come across a family on the edges of the wilderness and become embroiled in trying to help them.

At a lively Q&A after the film's premiere at the Eccles theatre during Sundance Film Festival on Monday, McGregor and director Rodrigo García took questions from the audience concerning everything from how playing Jesus might permanently change an actor to why Rodriguez included a fart gag.

McGregor said: "It's an extraordinary situation to be playing two roles in any film. It's quite »

Week in Review: Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ is finally getting made

23 January 2015 10:26 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the most anticipated films of 2015 is Martin Scorsese’s Silence. Although that anticipation was under the presumption that Silence would actually come out this year, let alone be made. The film has been in pre-production for ages, by Marty’s account, nearly two decades, but the film is finally coming together with funding from Fábrica de Cine and SharpSword Films, Deadline reported.

Silence stars Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver (yes, he’s in Everything now) as two Jesuit priests in 17th Century Japan on a mission to spread Christianity and locate their mentor, played by Liam Neeson. The pair face incredible, violent persecution while on their journey, and the film has been likened to Scorsese’s last East Asia epic, Kundun.

Silence is based on a 1966 novel by Shūsaku Endō and is adapted from a script by Jay Cocks, who worked with Scorsese on his last long delayed period piece, »

The 'Selma' Oscar Snubs: What It Means About Race And Gender In Hollywood

22 January 2015 10:39 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Crack your knuckles, take a deep breath and get ready to look for a way to be outraged —we’re going to talk about race and gender. In light of the perceived "snubbing" (a problematic concept in the first place, tending to veer toward "a pointed exclusion due to malevolent forces" and away from simply "not chosen from a wide pool of worthy candidates") of Ava DuVernay’ "Selma" in certain major Oscar categories, a warning flare was shot up into the dawn sky over the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in La last Thursday. That flare then exploded into a firestorm with the realization that all 20 acting nominees are white, and across all feature film nomination categories (including Documentary, Foreign and Animated as well as the main Best Director category), there are just two female directors on the slate, both for documentaries —Laura Poitras for "Citizenfour" and Rory Kennedy, co-director of "Last Days in. »

Earlier this week Marvel announced that it is to reboot the Marvel Universe with the upcoming Secret Wars event series, and now the publisher has announced that it is counting down to the end of the 616 with Last Days, the first of three different types of series tying in with Secret Wars.

“What would you do if you learned today was your last day on Earth?” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “That’s the question your favorite Marvel heroes are going to ask themselves in their Last Days story lines as they brace for Secret Wars and the end of the Marvel Universe.”

Sundance Premiere 'Last Days in the Desert' Awarded Dolby Family Sound Fellowship

20 January 2015 11:56 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Dolby Family Sound Fellowship, an initiative of the Dolby Institute, was created last year for movies that showcase an innovative use of sound in storytelling. This fellowship offers filmmakers a variety of resources, from studio space, to mentorship from industry experts, to cold hard cash (up to $75,000) -- all in order to ensure that the film's sound is as good as is humanly possible. The selection process was moderated by the Sundance Institute and the Dolby Institute, who both chose "Last Days in the Desert" for its "complex canvas and nuanced characters." The film itself follows the story of Jesus (played by Ewan McGregor), as he fasts and prays for 40 days in the desert. As he does so, he grapples with the devil (who is, in an interesting twist, also played by McGregor) over the fate of an ordinary family, in what becomes "a dramatic test for himself." Read »

Analysis: The Unpredictable 2015 Oscar Nominations

15 January 2015 8:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On Thursday, voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences once again provided several surprises in its announcement of the 87th Oscar nominations, which included mentions for underdogs Marion Cotillard (“Two Days, One Night”) and Laura Dern (“Wild”) while omitting such “shoo-ins” as “The Lego Movie” for best animated film and “Gone Girl” for screenplay.

In a year where eight films will compete for best picture, it was a pair of independent films — one released in March — that walked away with the most nominations as “Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” scored nine each.

Runners-up in terms of tallies were eight noms for “The Imitation Game” and six for “American Sniper” and “Boyhood.”

Though nominated for PGA Awards, “Foxcatcher,” “Gone Girl” and “Nightcrawler” all failed to land best picture nominations for the Oscars. David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and “Nightcrawler” had received a lot of attention from the guilds, »

Oscar Nominations 2015: The Complete List

15 January 2015 12:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Weeks of wild speculation, informed theorizing, splashy profile pieces, lunches where movie stars awkwardly make conversation with bloggers and occasionally aimless prognostication finally come down to this one morning: the morning where the nominations for the 87th annual Academy Awards are announced. The big show, hosted by the endlessly delightful Neil Patrick Harris, doesn't air until February 22nd. But this morning is when the hand wringing really begins in earnest.

There are a bunch of really handsome, talented people that are going to have a really good morning and even more that are going to be horribly disappointed (luckily they have the whole "handsome and talented" thing to lessen the blow). This has been one of the more unpredictable Oscar seasons in recent memory, without clear frontrunners or surefire favorites. So strap in -- this is going to be a wild morning!

Feature: Top 25 Interviews of 2014, By Patrick McDonald

12 January 2015 12:48 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – One of the specialities of HollywoodChicago.com is the film and personality interview. The majority of these chats came through me, Patrick McDonald, and I couldn’t narrow it down to a top 10 or even a top 20. For 2014, there were 25 top interviews, and it is a diverse range of voices.

It is a privilege to get the opportunity to participate in the promotional tours, awards ceremonies, film festivals, book appearances, phoners and other lucky happenstances that feature the notable among us. To whittle down the list, I mostly thought about what was said in these interviews, whether inspirational or provocative – plus the status of the participants, whether they are up-and-coming or established.

The interview highlights are broken down by “Background and Behind-the-Scenes” and the “Memorable Quote” associated with each subject, and are often accompanied with exclusive photography by Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com. Four notables who just missed the »
