Academy's Special 2014 Honorees: Veterans Belafonte, Carrière, Miyazaki and - Finally - O'Hara

29 August 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

Off the Carpet: Eastwood crashes the season as Telluride gears up for another edition

18 August 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been an interesting run of films for director Clint Eastwood in the 10 years since his "Million Dollar Baby" crashed the 2004 Oscar party and ran away with the gold. I say "interesting" because, at least in awards season terms, it's been a run particularly notable for lots of revving but nothing that ever materialized as a significant player. Right after "Baby" it was the one-two punch of "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima" in 2006, a bold play for the then-75-year-old filmmaker. While developing an adaptation of John Bradley's book for the former, Eastwood felt a perspective from the Japanese side of the WWII equation was warranted, so he quickly developed the latter. And it was "Letters" that felt like it had more on its mind, yielding surprise (for some) nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, as well an Oscar for Best Sound Editing. »

'Babylon 5' Movie Targets 2016 Production Start Date

11 August 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Babylon 5 series creator J. Michael Straczynski recently revealed at Comic-Con 2014 that he is planning on writing a new feature film reboot based on his beloved sci-fi TV series, which ran for five seasons between 1994 and 1998.

J. Michael Straczynski said that he plans on getting the screenplay locked down by the end of 2015, with production tentatively scheduled to begin sometime in 2016. While the feature will be a complete reboot of the Babylon 5 concept, the writer stated that he wants to bring in Babylon 5 series stars such as Bruce Boxleitner and Mira Furlan to play new characters.

"I'd love to see Bruce as the President of the Earth Alliance."

The writer/producer also hinted that he hopes Warner Bros., the studio that produced the original series, will come on board and give the green light for this "big budget" feature, which will reportedly cost between $80 million and $100 million. However, »

New trailer for ‘Unbroken’, a Louis Zamperini biopic directed by Angelina Jolie

10 July 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the course of her acting career, Angelina Jolie has garnered both critical and commercial acclaim for a varied filmography that includes Girl, Interrupted, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, A Mighty Heart, and Changeling. Her directorial debut in 2011, however, garnered her a new set of fans, many of whom were intrigued to learn that she would be stepping behind the camera once again, this time to tell the story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic athlete and Pow who sadly passed away on July 2nd of this year. Titled Unbroken, the movie is co-written by the Coen Brothers, William Nicholson, and Richard Lagravenese, and stars Jack O’Connell, Garrett Hedlund, Jai Courtney, and Domhnall Gleeson. A new trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

What Went Wrong with 'Jersey Boys'? (Video)

25 June 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's easy to see how Warner Bros. turned to their A-list director-producer Clint Eastwood, known for his calm, economic, unpretentious, methodical filmmaking, for the 60s period musical "Jersey Boys." After directing 37 movies, he can do period in his sleep, from "Invictus" to "Changeling,"--on a budget. He's a composer and jazz pianist who knows music (Cannes prize-winner "Bird").  "It's just a lot of good songs," he told Vanity Fair. "You go home humming a different one every night." And he's great with actors. The Tony-winning musical also had a good chance of being Oscar bait--likely to play well to the seniors in the Academy who have voted Eastwood movies many Oscars over the years, from "Mystic River" to Best Picture-winners "Unforgiven" and "Million Dollar Baby." But the movie looks bland and brown: while it may be accurate for the period, it's not »

Movie Review – Jersey Boys (2014)

22 June 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jersey Boys, 2014.

Directed by Clint Eastwood.

Starring John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, Steve Schirripa, Christopher Walken, Kathrine Narducci, Lou Volpe, Johnny Cannizzaro, and Michael Lomenda.

Synopsis:

The story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons.

There is a great scene in Clint Eastwood’s big screen version of the hit show Jersey Boys, where the actors perform a musical number in that old Hollywood style we no longer see; the set is clearly a set, the singing breaks out from conversation, people enter and leave the frame dancing, and for a few minutes the film is acknowledging both the roots of the show and the magical artifice of musical cinema.

The problem is these few minutes only arrive as the film is ending, like the final curtain of a stage »

Top 10 films directed by Clint Eastwood

20 June 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Okay, so the reviews are in, and it turns out I'm not alone in thinking that Clint Eastwood's "Jersey Boys" -- the 84-year-old actor-director-producer's 33rd effort behind the camera -- is a bit of a dud. Worse still, it's not the only recent misfire for the four-time Oscar winner frequently referred by critics as the last true classicist in American cinema. "J. Edgar," "Hereafter," "Invictus" and "Changeling" all met with varying degrees of opposition, though his defenders stand firm. "Has any working director had more wobbly movies defended by auteurist critics than Clint Eastwood?" tweeted Mark Harris recently. This iffy run of form, however, follows a recent purple patch during which Eastwood could seemingly do no wrong, as he racked up three Best Picture nominees in the space of four years (effectively erasing the less ecstatically received film that served as the precursor to the third of those).

Clint Eastwood: Spotlight on the Stars

18 June 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to go old school and take a look at a classic A-lister, and that happens to be one Clint Eastwood. Depending on your age, he’s either a director who used to be an actor or a childhood icon who’s now become a rather iconic filmmaker. Few could have reinvented themselves the way that Eastwood has, with this weekend’s release of Jersey Boys highlighting his directing skills in a whole new light than really ever before. He’s tried to do it all in Hollywood, you have to tip your hat to him for that. Eastwood has basically done it all in the business. He’s starred in franchises (the Dirty Harry series as well as The Man With No Name movies), acted in Best Picture winners, and directed them as well. Though one could legitimately make the claim that »

Happy Birthday, Angelina Jolie! See Her Style Transformation

4 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Angelina Jolie celebrates her 39th birthday today! The A-list actress made her silver screen debut at the early age of seven, when she appeared alongside her father, Jon Voight, in the film “Lookin’ to Get Out.” At the age of sixteen, Angelina began to seriously pursue acting and landed her first leading role in the straight-to-video film “Cyborg 2.” Jolie quickly rose to prominence as an actress and went on to win three Golden Globe Awards – the first was given for her performance in the TV movie “George Wallace,” she received a second Golden Globe for portraying the titular character in the HBO film “Gia,” and won a third for her breakout role as Lisa Rowe in “Girl, Interrupted.” Although she experienced success earl y on in her career, the starlet’s fame reached new heights when she was cast as the title role in the film “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, »

Clint Eastwood's 'Jersey Boys' to premiere at 2014 La film fest

6 May 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clint Eastwood hasn't hit it big on the Oscar circuit in some time. Films like "Changeling," "Invictus" and "Hereafter" scored the casual nomination here or there, but his last Best Picture nominee came nearly a decade ago with "Letters from Iwo Jima." Will "Jersey Boys" change all of that? We'll know if the adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical has that kind of muscle sooner rather than later, as the film has been announced as the closing night premiere of this year's Los Angeles Film Festival. "It’s exciting to see Eastwood still tackling new forms," Laff Artistic Director David Ansen said. "His deft, rousing translation of ‘Jersey Boys’ from stage to screen is further confirmation of his amazing, ageless talent." Also announced Tuesday are special gala presentations of Ira Sachs' "Love is Strange" and Justin Simien's "Dear White People," both hits when they bowed at the Sundance Film Festival in January. »

Yes No Maybe So: "Jersey Boys"

18 April 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

From Tommy Lee Jones directing himself and The Swank we turn to another far more accomplished actor-turned-director. Clint Eastwood has won four Oscars in his career from two films (Unforgiven & Million Dollar Baby) but the 83 year old director has had a bit of a rougher run than usual in recent years, critically speaking. He's back with Jersey Boys based on the Broadway jukebox hit about the Four Seasons.

Let's divvy up our reactions to the trailer.

Yes

• There will be a lot of music 

• Counterprogramming in the blockbuster realm of summer movies could help with critical reception so that's a smart move.

• Newish handsome actors in plum star-making position (if the movie is good and they ace it)

Clint went from two-a-year to radio silence for two years. Maybe the time off did him good? This is, the longest break he's ever taking from directing since between The Gauntlet (1977) and »

‘Jersey Boys’ Trailer: They Shoulda Hung On To What They Got

17 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I can understand the appeal of a jukebox musical on Broadway. In a way, it’s just a concert, albeit for cover artists, with a little bit of story thrown in for fun — like skits on a rap record. On the big screen, though, they just can’t be as enjoyable. There’s no live performance and, unless you find just the right movie theater or wait a number of years for a Drafthouse sing-a-long screening, there’s none of the same audience vibe you get with the real deal. I’m sure the stage incarnation of Jersey Boys is a really good time. The movie version, on the other hand, looks like a real bore of a biopic with an imitation soundtrack. It seems so generic that they’ve probably even thrown in a token sibling death for Frankie Valli. This evening we got our best look yet at the adaptation, directed »

17 April 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Clint Eastwood has hit a bit of a rough patch in his directing career. Since getting his last Oscar nomination in 2007, his work has ranged from the underwhelming (Changeling, Gran Torino, Invictus) to downright bad (Hereafter, J. Edgar).

Apple has debuted the premiere trailer for Eastwood's upcoming musical Jersey Boys, and you can watch it embedded above. Based on the true story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, Vincent Piazza, and Christopher Walken, Jersey Boys is an adaptation of the Broadway play of the same name.
