Here’s Molly Shannon’s Secret to Long-Term Success In Film and TV

29 June 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Molly Shannon’s post-“Saturday Night Live” career is a diverse one: supporting turns in festival favorites like “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” and “Life After Beth,” memorable roles in studio comedies like “Talladega Nights” and “Evan Almighty” and plenty of off-beat television for small screen fans. Later this year, she’ll co-star in the much-hyped HBO comedy “Divorce,” starring Sarah Jessica Parker. If it seems like she’s casting her net all over the place, it’s at least partly by design. For Shannon, the key to both Hollywood success and creative fulfillment is simple: Working hard and always looking for something different.

Every now and then, the industry takes notice. At the recent Nantucket Film Festival, Shannon accepted the Compass Rose Acting Award. While there, she also supported first-time filmmaker’s Chris Kelly’s Audience Award winner, “Other People,” which opened the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, »

Morgan Freeman Open To Bruce Almighty 2, But Only If Jim Carrey Returns

12 January 2016 10:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With that signature (and soothing) voice coupled with a cool and calm demeanour, Morgan Freeman portrayed God with such compelling gravitas across Bruce Almighty and its middling spinoff Evan Almighty that he could fool us into believing that he actually is the all-powerful deity – ice-white suit and all.

It’s been almost a decade since Freeman last played the role in 2007, though while speaking to /Film, the esteemed actor revealed that he would be game for returning for Bruce Almighty 2, but only if Jim Carrey joins him. Said he: “I think I would have to if they did it. If Jim Carrey plays his character, and if I was called on, I would feel obligated.”

Carrey and Freeman first united for the original sleeper hit in 2003, where the former took on the role of Bruce Nolan, a struggling field reporter who is imbued with divine powers capable of reversing not only his own fortunes, »

Oscars: ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Jurassic World,’ ‘Mad Max’ Shine at Academy’s Annual Visual Effects Bake-off

10 January 2016 11:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy’s annual visual effects bake-off was held Saturday night at the org’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. An event unique to only two categories (the other being best makeup and hairstyling), this is where and when the nominees for the best visual effects Oscar are chosen.

A quick rundown of the protocol: Ten films are selected by the branch’s executive committee to present. The visual effects supervisor for each film introduces the work for five minutes. Then comes the film’s 10-minute highlight reel, showing only clips as they’re seen in the film —  no “befores-and-afters,” no progressions to reveal the extent of the work. Since it’s an official voting meeting, applause and cheering from the audience is discouraged. Next, there are then three minutes of questions from the voting members following each clip. When those 18 minutes are up, it’s on to the next. »
