Deadpool has been the best and worst relationship I’ve ever been in,” said Reynolds. “Eleven years, I’ve been trying to get this movie made. We had a script, we did that about six years ago, then we had a little bit of test footage for the movie.

Ice Cube on Oscar Controversy: We Do Movies for the Fans, Not the Industry

23 January 2016 7:56 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the Oscar nominations were announced last week, they were more controversial than ever, since, for the second year in a row, no African-American actor or actress was nominated, and the hit Straight Outta Compton didn't receive a Best Picture nomination. This lead to stars such as Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and filmmaker Spike Lee to boycott the awards ceremony, with Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo revealing this week that he's mulling the possibility of shunning the ceremony as well. Today we have more reactions on the controversy from Straight Outta Compton producer Ice Cube and actors such as Danny DeVito, Don Cheadle and Sam Neill.

Ice Cube, who started his entertainment career as a founding member of the pioneering rap group N.W.A., served as a producer on Straight Outta Compton, where he is portrayed by his son, O'Shea Jackson Jr.. The biopic was widely beloved by critics and fans alike, »

22 January 2016 4:31 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Straight Outta Compton” producer Ice Cube offered his two cents on the Oscars boycott and his N.W.A biopic’s exclusion from the Academy’s best picture category on a Friday episode of “The Graham Norton Show.”

When Norton asked Cube if he’d still attend the Feb. 28 ceremony, he responded, “I never used to go anyway. You can’t boycott something you never went to.”

On the topic of the Academy failing to recognize “Straight Outta Compton” — which received an Oscar nod for best original screenplay — in the best picture category, Cube said that being upset about the situation was like “crying about not having enough icing on your cake.”

“We don’t do movies for the industry. We do movies for the fans, for the people,” he said. “If the industry gives you a trophy or not, or pats you on the back or not, it’s nice, »

20 January 2016 12:10 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With Dirty Grandpa, we may have officially reached the point where a Robert De Niro impression is guaranteed to be more enjoyable than a Robert De Niro performance. Fortunately, the indisputable fact that he's one of the most iconic actors in movie history means that there's a ton of imitators out there.

Film directors and their crew discuss the techniques and approaches to capturing fruitiness on the big (and small) screen...

John Badham has written a couple of excellent books where he passed on advice about directing movies, and the lessons he's learned across his own career. In the latest, John Badham On Directing, he raises the spectre of filming sex scenes, and the problems that ensue.

Actors get really spooked when it comes to intimacy in a scene, even kissing", he wrote. "This is where the director has to be extremely patient with the actors and know that the emotional or intimate part of scenes don’t always shoot as easily as the production department thinks they should. The actors are not robots on a Toyota assembly line".

But just how do different filmmakers approach putting intimacy on film? In lots of different ways, is the answer...
