‘Stranger Things’ to ‘Anne With an E’: The Secret Weapon Behind Netflix’s Latest Stunning Opening Sequence

26 May 2017 5:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Stranger Things” and “Anne with an E” wouldn’t appear to have much in common. But both Netflix series boast iconic and impactful opening sequences created by the same design studio.

Imaginary Forces creative director Alan Williams, whose company earned lauds for its minimalist title design for “Stranger Things,” reached out to Netflix again when he learned that the streaming service was adapting the novel into a series, “Anne with an E.” Like many, Williams grew up captivated by Anne Shirley, the heroine from author Lucy Maud Montgomery’s book “Anne of Green Gables. The lonely orphan had an indomitable spirit, wild imagination, and affinity for the natural world that she brought with her to Green Gables, where she finally found a home.

‘Twin Peaks’: David Lynch Talks About Reviving the Iconic Series

26 May 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

He dressed like a G-man.

When he arrived for his interview with Variety, David Lynch wore a black suit, a white shirt, a black tie, and wingtips. His hair was styled the same way as always, but what had once been jet black was now mostly white. The only pop of color on Lynch was incongruous; it emerged when he sat down for the interview. As he gestured while talking, a yellow plastic watch peeked out from the sleeve of his white shirt. It was the only item that didn’t make him look like his “Twin Peaks” character, FBI official Gordon Cole.

Lynch was as affable an interviewee as I’ve ever come across, but his answers were concise: His art may rely on the creation of a mysterious atmosphere, but in talking about his return to the world of “Twin Peaks,” he couldn’t have been more unequivocal and direct. »

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Confirmed As 6 Episodes

26 May 2017 8:27 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We’ve known for some time that the last two seasons of Game of Thrones would be much shorter than the standard 10-episode ones. The first six seasons had done a fantastic job of building this world, and setting all the chess pieces in place, and now what remained were the countless payoffs that audiences had been hungry for all these years.

Some time ago, the showrunners stated that the last two seasons would only consist of 13 episodes in total, and when it was confirmed that Season 7 would be seven episodes long, it took simple arithmetic to figure out that Season 8 would likely only last six episodes. However, nothing is ever fully set in the film industry. The creative process is ever malleable, and in the time between then and now, they could very well have found that they had either more or less story to tell, when all said and done. »

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and ‘Baywatch’ Take On Memorial Day: Which Beach Will Win?

25 May 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and “Baywatch” lead what could be the best Memorial Day weekend in three years. But as holidays go, Memorial Day isn’t what it used to be.

The schedule’s changed. More of the top summer releases go for early May, and given that many studio blockbusters must divide their loyalties between the international and domestic calendars, the last weekend of May has lost some of its appeal.

Holding the record for the biggest-ever opening on Memorial Day weekend is “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” in 2007. This the first “Pirates” in six years; is the audience still there? (We’ve seen the pessimistic take on that question with “Alien: Covenant,” which came five years after its last.)

Netflix’s Castlevania Teaser: In Darkness, A Hero Returns

25 May 2017 | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

For decades, fans have been waiting to see a video game movie hit the big screen in a big way. Sadly, all we’ve really have been failures and underperformers. When all said and done, it’s really hard to adapt something from a gameplay-focused medium to a storytelling medium. Each medium has its strengths, and each one is trying to accomplish a different goal. With all that in mind, it’s no wonder Hollywood has had such a hard time adapting it to the big screen.

It’s also very possible that they’ve had their sights set on the wrong medium. Perhaps the big screen wasn’t where they should have been focusing their energy. In the past decade or so, we’ve seen a huge creative boom on television. With shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad dominating the pop culture zeitgeist, it became clear that »

Lineup Announced for Split Screens TV Fest in New York – Maggie Gyllenhaal’s ‘The Deuce’ to premiere & much more

25 May 2017 4:20 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: James Kleinmann

The lineup for the first Split Screens TV festival in New York which runs at the IFC Center from 2nd – 8th June 2017 has just been announced.

With high-profile filmmakers and actors working in television now the norm and the current wealth of celebrated series, showcasing episodes along with their casts and creators has become an increasingly important aspect of major film festivals. Despite the likes of Tribeca 2017 creating an entire programme strand for television, the natural focus of festival press coverage tends to remains on film, so it’s great to see more festivals emerge like Spilt Screens which are devoted purely to television.

Curated by critic Matt Zoller Seitz, the weeklong Spilt Screens festival comprises special events, panels and screenings and launches with the world premiere of HBO’s ’70s set drama ‘The Deuce’, with producer and co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal in attendance.

Is Better Call Saul Approaching Better than Breaking Bad Territory?

25 May 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For those who are not as familiar with Better Call Saul as they should be, it is a spin-off from Breaking Bad that came into being because AMC wanted to work with its executive producer Vince Gilligan again while Gilligan wanted to work with writer Peter Gould again. As a result, they created the idea for a prequel about the gradual transformation of James Morgan “Jimmy” McGill into Saul Goodman, the cheerful cheeseball of a criminal attorney who became so important on Breaking Bad, which would lower the stakes but more than make up for it in other respects.

Rian Johnson Was Pretty Much Given A Blank Page With Star Wars: The Last Jedi

24 May 2017 4:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’ve been following the career of Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson ever since he made the astonishingly awesome Brick way back in 2005. That little indie high-school noir propelled him (and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt) onto bigger things, including twisty time-travel caper Looper and some of the best episodes of Breaking Bad (though we’ll conveniently forget about his sophomore feature The Brothers Bloom).

Having met the guy on one of his trips to London a couple of years ago, I can personally attest to Rian Johnson being a completely awesome human being. So, it was with a lot of excitement that I heard he’d gotten the Episode VIII directing gig: the plum job in science fiction cinema. But what I wasn’t expecting was just how much leeway Lucasfilm gave him with the material.

I’d assumed that these new Star Wars movies were essentially ‘director-for-hire, »

Release Dates Set for Elizabeth Banks’ “Charlie’s Angels” and Michelle MacLaren’s “The Nightingale”

24 May 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Elizabeth Banks on “Comedy BangBang!”

Two upcoming women-directed projects have received release dates. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michelle MacLaren’s “The Nightingale” will hit theaters in summer 2018 and the “Charlie’s Angels” reboot from Elizabeth Banks will open in summer 2019.

MacLaren’s feature directorial debut, “The Nightingale,” is based on the book by Kristin Hannah. The drama centers on two sisters growing up in German-occupied France in the years leading up to World War II. Written by MacLaren and John Sayles (“The Spiderwick Chronicles”), the film will hit screens August 10, 2018.

MacLaren has previously directed episodes of series like “The Leftovers,” “Better Call Saul,” and “Game of Thrones.” She has won two Emmys for her work on “Breaking Bad.” MacLaren was originally set to direct the upcoming “Wonder Woman” movie starring Gal Godot before Patty Jenkins took over.

The Babadook” writer-director Jennifer Kent is also making a movie titled “The Nightingale.” That project is currently filming and centers on a convict seeking revenge against a soldier who wronged her family.

Banks’ “Charlie’s Angels” is an update of the TV and film-mainstay about three private detectives hired by an enigmatic millionaire, Charlie, only ever heard through the telephone. The original, a 1976 TV show starring Jacklyn Smith, Kate Jackson, and Farrah Fawcett, was previously remade into an early-aughts action film franchise (starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu) and a short-lived 2011 ABC series (starring Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh, and Rachael Taylor). The new “Charlie’s Angels” will be released June 7, 2019.

Banks made her directorial debut with 2015’s “Pitch Perfect 2,” in which she also starred. The comedy sequel about a misfit college a cappella team earned more than $287 million worldwide. Banks has a number of projects in the works including adapting Lindy West’s feminist memoir “Shrill” for TV, serving as producer on “White Girl Problems,” a book adaptation helmed by Lauren Palmigiano, and producing and starring in “Pitch Perfect 3.” The franchise’s next film hits theaters December 22.

Release Dates Set for Elizabeth Banks’ “Charlie’s Angels” and Michelle MacLaren’s “The Nightingale” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Why Rian Johnson is Great for Star Wars

24 May 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For some, Rian Johnson is the director of the acclaimed hit Looper, which proved he was ready for the big league budget of Star Wars directing. But for others, Rian Johnson is one of the keepers of classic cinema, both in taste and style. Like Lucas before him, Johnson is an old school filmmaker working in a contemporary blockbuster setting. Rian Johnson is a perfect fit for Star Wars, and I’ll detail why in great, painful lengths. Rian Johnson is exactly what Star Wars needs right now.

               On October 30th, 2012 Disney announced they were acquiring Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion and that there would be new Star Wars films every two to three years (that’s since changed). Just barely a month before, Rian Johnson’s film Looper was released wide in September to wide critical acclaim and instantly embraced by fans as a modern sci-fi classic. The first question in »

The reviews are in for “Baywatch,” which opens in theaters this Thursday, May 25. Seth Gordon’s feature film remake of the iconic ’90s series about a group of very hot lifeguards stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as devoted rescuer Mitch Buchannon (the role played by David Hasselhoff in the original series), who has a really hard time with a reckless new recruit named Matt Brody (Zac Efron). Priyanka Chopra co-stars as the villainous vixen, Victoria Leeds, Alexandra Daddario is Summer, Ilfenesh Hadera is Stephanie and Kelly Rohrbach takes on the role of C.J. Parker (originally played by Pamela Anderson).

In her B- review for the film for IndieWire, Judy Dry describes it as “a splashy summer hit full of dick jokes,” adding that “something about the blow-up floaties, the water rescues, and the red suits just screams summer blockbuster. »
