Interview: Directors Scott Beck & Bryan Woods Talk Nightlight

3 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

While most horror fans have grown tired of countless Pov/Found Footage genre films, it’s always a refreshing and entertaining time to come across horror films that utilize the Pov approach in new and interesting ways. Directors Scott Beck & Bryan Woods have done just that, with their excitingly original and completely enthralling horror thriller Nightlight. Bypassing the “We have a camera, let’s document everryyyyyything” approach in favor of the film being completely from the point of view of a flashlight, the film about a group of friends playing one dark and ultimately deadly game, just feels like so much fun and is a Really solid entry.

Beck and & Woods spoke to Icons of Fright about the film, its inspiration, the challenges of making the film the way they did, and what’s in store for the filmmaking duo next, so Read On!!

 

Nightlight felt very original and refreshing, »

Natalie Portman on Israel, Hollywood sexism and ‘being the boss’

24 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Black Swan star’s directoral debut – based on Amos Oz’s A Tale of Love and Darkness – explores the ‘mythology’ surrounding the birth of the Jewish state. Is she ready for the inevitable backlash?

Natalie Portman is lugging a giant, heavy-looking sofa across the floor, to get away from what she mutters is the “brutal” heat of the sunlight beating down on the corner of a private beach club in Cannes. I feel I should help – I’m standing a few feet away, awaiting the signal to step forward – but the presence of one or two burly security staff nearby suggests I should stay damn well where I am. She’s dragging it while clad in the same fantastically flimsy Rodarte drapery and teetering high heels she wore for the film festival’s traditional photocall, a smidgeon of moxie underneath the carapace of glamour.

When the seating arrangements are aligned to her satisfaction, »

Cannes 2015: Five Questions For Tale of Tales‘ Vincent Cassel

22 May 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

He’s played a troubled youth in the Paris ghettos in La Haine, a vengeful husband in Irreversible, and an abusive ballet company director in Black Swan. One pattern is clear with French actor Vincent Cassel: he works with directors of a special breed who can’t be boxed up neatly within a genre. His latest Cannes film is no exception. Cassel partnered with Italian director Matteo Garrone to play the role of a casanova Medieval king who’s always on the search for his next sexual conquest in Tale of Tales. Based upon the stories of Giambattista Basile, Europe’s original fairytale scribe, […] »

A rites-of-passage and family drama of big dreams in small-town Brazil, whose landscapes look set to capture the tone of a heartwarming tale of family reconciliation, it turns on Tony, »

Natalie Portman's getting cheeky!  The actress was spotted at a photocall for her new directorial debut, "A Tale of Love and Darkness" at the 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on Sunday.  The Hebrew-language film -- which also stars the brunette beauty -- was adapted from the memoir of Amos Oz, an Israeli writer/journalist.   Portman stunned at the event wearing a sheer, black Rodarte dress complete with colorful sequins. The "Black Swan" actress finished her look with black strappy sandals and wore her hair pinned-back in a braid.  Natalie gave fans a real treat when she posed for photos from behind, and showed off her booty in the high-fashion number.  It's definitely a rare racy red carpet moment from the Oscar-winner -- and we're loving it! The 33-year-old definitely has the body to pull this look off -- what do you think about Portman's sexy look? »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

14 May 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With her first feature as director, "A Tale of Love and Darkness," set to bow out of competition at Cannes on May 16, Natalie Portman appears to have a new motto both in front of and behind the camera: Go big or go home. As Variety reports, the Oscar winner has signed on the star as Jackie Kennedy in "No" director Pablo Larrain's "Jackie," which focuses on the former First Lady in the days immediately following President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Darren Aronofsky, who directed her to the Best Actress statuette in "Black Swan" (2010), will produce. The news comes fast on the heels of the announcement, first reported by Deadline, that Portman is slated to play another iconic American woman, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in the upcoming "On the Basis of Sex," which follows "the notorious Rbg" as she faces down sexism over the course of her brilliant legal career. »

Natalie Portman To Play 'Jackie' Kennedy For 'No' Director Pablo Larrain, Darren Aronofsky Produces

14 May 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The story of the long-developing "Jackie" is a bit detailed, so bear with us: Back in 2010, Steven Spielberg was eyeing the hot Noah Oppenheim script as something to potentially produce over at HBO. Then Darren Aronofsky and Rachel Weisz were eyeballing it as the director's next movie after "Black Swan," but both moved on after their relationship ended. A couple of years later, "Black Swan" star Natalie Portman eyed the project as a starring vehicle, and not only is it now happening, but it has a great director attached. Variety reports that Natalie Portman will take the title role in the movie that now has Pablo Larrain ("No," "Post Mortem") at the helm, with Aronofsky producing. The script follows Jackie Kennedy during the four days between her husband's infamous assassination and his burial. Back in the day we took a look at the script, and it sees the First Lady »

Dancing With the Stars Semi Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

12 May 2015 6:24 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Monday’s performance show for the Dancing With the Stars semifinals didn’t technically have a theme, but I’d like to propose one that became evident during the two-hour broadcast: “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other.”

It’s hard to openly discuss this season’s Final Four without acknowledging the Insensitive Elephant in the Room: Even though Noah Galloway has been nothing short of inspirational in his efforts on the dance floor, he just can’t match Rumer, Nastia and Riker in their skill and range.

I imagine this is a dilemma that Carrie Ann, Len, »
