Champagne was flowing throughout the night as artists, celebs and potential bidders mingled amid the various works of art »

Bronn of the Blackwater (Jerome Flynn) would love nothing more than to take full credit for shooting Drogon, but another man was at least equally responsible for shooting the dragon: Matt Shakman, director of the past two episodes of Game of Thrones.
Shakman, best known for directing several episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, is the filmmaker who brought the Loot Train Battle to life in "The Spoils of War," and assembled one of the greatest bands of warriors »

When Kristen Stewart goes to Cannes, she’s usually promoting a movie directed by someone else — like Olivier Assayas’ “Personal Shopper,” which debuted on the Riviera last year. The actress’s Cannes anxiety usually derives from wanting to represent her director correctly, to get out the right message. But this year’s different.
“I’m not working for anyone but myself,” she says, beaming. “Ask me anything!”
Stewart came to Cannes this year as the director of her first short, the 17-minute “Come Swim.” She and her producers at Starlight Studios pitched the film to women’s website Refinery29, which also backed her chum Chloe Sevigne’s short “Kitty: The Movie.” They helped Stewart to develop her rough outline, in which she described an image of a giant wave “getting bigger and bigger” that “never breaks.” Stewart already knew just the Australian underwater photographer to shoot it. Indeed, the film »

Last year, Vimeo user Vugar Efendi published a side-by-side supercut entitled “Film Meets Art.” The goal was simple – to show how great paintings inspired some of the best shots in cinema – and the result was a rather beautiful side-by-side study of just how painterly filmmaking can be.
The first installment put Thomas Gainsborough’s “Boy in Blue” next to Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” and it showed how the works of American artist Andrew Wyeth rubbed off on Terrence Malick for “Days of Heaven.” The video proved popular enough that Efendi turned it into a series, which was just completed this month with the release of a third installment (via No Film School).

For an hour that so drastically limited the focus to one single storyline, Fargo Season 3 Episode 3 was a remarkably compelling installment of the series.
"The Law of Non-Contradiction" found Gloria Burgle leaving behind the Minnesota chill for sunny California to investigate her murdered stepdad's secret past. It also provided an incredible showcase for the unbelievably talented Carrie Coon.
The action was split between flashback sequences to Thaddeus Mobley in California in 1975 and Gloria Burgle essentially retracing his steps 35 years later.
In my review of Fargo Season 3 Episode 2, I wasn't fully clear on whether Ennis was definitely Thaddeus Mobley, but that was cleared up quickly.
Ennis was once an award-winning sci-fi writer on the verge of the big time, but a series of bad choices (and a whole lot of cocaine) derailed his life and his career, sending him into a life of drunken curmodgeonliness in Minnesota.
The flashbacks revealed that »

In a seedy Hollywood motel room, Minnesota cop Gloria Burgle looks behind a curtain and finds a box, with a unlabeled switch on the top. She flicks it on. A light turns green, and the lid opens just slightly. A robotic hand comes out, moves the switch to the off position, then retreats as the light turns red. This is all the device does.
This week's Fargo episode, blessed with the superb title "The Law of Non-Contradiction," is all about unpacking what this box means. A mere three weeks into its third season, »
TheWrap first reported in March that Olson’s fellow series star, Glenn Howerton, said it would be going on an “extended hiatus,” but that he didn’t know how long it would be. He also said he may or may not return. In an interview with TVGuide.com, Olson provided some added insight, at least, on the length of the hiatus, saying the next season will be pushed a full year.
That will allow her to work on her Fox. »

1988 was a unique year in film history. For every Die Hard and Who Framed Roger Rabbit that debuted, we had odd films like Earth Girls Are Easy, Cocktail, and the comedy Twins, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito who play brothers who were separated at birth. For some reason the movie made over $200 Million Dollars that year (adjusted for inflation.) Keep in mind that Die Hard made only $174 Million Dollars that year (adjusted for inflation.) and you get a sense that all was not right with the world in the latter half of the 1980's.
Yahoo Movies is reporting that there is movement in the long in production sequel to that film which would be called Triplets. Eddie Murphy would star along with Arnold and DeVito playing their other long lost brother. According to Arnold...

When it comes to absurd and offensive characters, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has the market cornered. FX's series recently wrapped its 12th season, and it's already scheduled to come back for season 13. That's pretty impressive for a low-budget comedy about five degenerate bar owners. (I say that with love.) With St. Patrick's Day here, there's never been a better time to celebrate Charlie, Dee, Mac, Dennis, and Frank. Check out these 28 moments that perfectly describe your pub crawl experiences. »

The star of the brutal Comedy Central show talks about the final season and how far the writers are willing to take the dark humor
Andy Daly is trying to think of a situation that would be too cruel to inflict upon Forrest MacNeil, the character he plays on Review, but it’s proving to be a struggle. The comedian laughs, pauses, and laughs again. Finally, after dredging the darkest recesses of his mind, he lands on something.
“There was a notion that at some point in our third season we were going to have his limbs removed,” Daly explains. “Because we were like: ‘This is our final season, so we can do something horrific that changes him permanently and not be married to it for much longer. We could have him lose both of his arms!’”

While not a traditional character departure like that of one from a sitcom, one recent goodbye that dealt an emotional blow to its fan base was that of Stefon from “SNL.” The character was a staple on the show for many years, propelling Bill Hader into comedic stardom. It’s great to see Hader in films like “Trainwreck” and providing hilarious voice acting for animated projects such as “Inside Out,” as well as some pretty hilarious phone commercials (the man can seriously »
