Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

‘Milk’ Screenwriter: Artists Have Responsibility to Share ‘Truth of Who Lgbt People Are’

30 June 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When I took to the stage at the Oscars in 2009 and promised that Lgbt people of this country would soon know full federal equality, I was chastised by more than a few politicians and most movement leaders for pushing too hard too soon. So, for half a decade, I put my film work on the back burner and joined with others to help ensure that this promise became a reality.

Today, with a 5-4 decision at the U.S. Supreme Court, a monumental piece of this promise was realized. And it is clear this victory was won because Lgbt citizens and our allies made ourselves visible, sharing our personal stories on stage and screen, and in courtrooms and living rooms. It’s much harder to look your own sister, son or neighbor in the eye and tell them their love isn’t the same as yours, or that their family deserves less. »

Why Gay Movie Stars Are Staying Locked in the Closet

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a vast and growing list of prominent gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender media and entertainment figures — just don’t count movie stars among them.

Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Caitlyn Jenner and Neil Patrick Harris have kicked open the closet door with little to no damage to their careers. In some cases, they’ve found themselves more in demand after revealing their sexual preferences or gender identification.

Yet there’s one glass ceiling that remains stubbornly resistant to cracks.

No A-list film actor has yet to come out publicly while at the pinnacle of his or her career. Sure, Jodie Foster gave an elliptical Golden Globes speech about being a lesbian, and out actors Ian McKellen and Zachary Quinto helped anchor the “X-Men” and “Lord of the Rings” series, and the rebooted “Star Trek” films, respectively. Yet despite their prodigious talents, none of them has the power to »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Sicario Gets A New Poster And Trailer – Stars Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro And Josh Brolin

19 June 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After receiving rave reviews out of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the latest trailer, as well as a new poster and three new images for Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated cartel thriller, Sicario.

When Arizona FBI agent and kidnap-response-team leader Kate Macer (Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find leads to profound consequences on both a personal and global level. Kate is recruited to join a covert black-ops mission headed by a mysterious Colombian operative known only as Alejandro (Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Best Supporting Actor, Traffic, 2000) along with special agent Matt Graver (Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin, Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008).

Even as Kate tries to convince herself she’s on a hunt for justice, she is thrust into the dark heart of a secret battleground that has swept up ruthless cartels, kill-crazy assassins, clandestine American spies and thousands of innocents. »

What do The Goonies look like now? Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman

7 June 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Goonies celebrates its 30th birthday today, and even after all these years we still adore this '80s classic.

Rumours have been swirling for some time about a Goonies 2 (make it happen, Hollywood!) with all the original cast returning, so with this in mind we take a trip down memory lane to find out what the stars of the cult classic are doing now.

Sean Astin

Sean Astin played the slightly dorky yet bright, braces-clad Mikey - who attempts to leads his fellow adventurers to One-Eyed Willy's hidden fortune upon his discovery of an old treasure map.

The 44-year-old actor has continued to enjoy movie success with his role as Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Astin also played Lynn McGill in hit Fox TV series 24, provides the voice of Raphael in Nickelodeon's TV version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012), and recently appeared in Guillermo del Toro »

Happy Birthday, Danny Elfman

28 May 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today, composer Danny Elfman turns 62. Elfman is one of the most brilliant and prolific film composers of our time (if not The most), so to celebrate his 62nd birthday, let’s take a look at his greatest hits: •Ever heard of a little show called “The Simpsons”? Well, Danny Elfman composed the music for that show, as well as for all “Simpsons” movies and video games. •”Silver Linings Playbook” is a masterpiece, in my humble opinion. Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, David O’Russell; these are the names credited for this remarkable film. The truth is, “Silver Linings” might have fallen flat if it weren’t for Danny Elfman, who worked as score producer on the greatest film of 2012. •Without the score composed by Danny Elfman, “Desperate Housewives” would be just a bunch of housewives lying to each other, housewives killing people, housewives just being overall desperate.

"The Beach Boys wore shirts by Pendleton," explains Los Angeles-based costume designer Danny Glicker (Milk, Up in the Air), who outfitted the actors in checkered blue button-ups to re-create the cover of the band’s 1962 album, Surfin’ Safari. "At the time, the shirts created a distinct visual that came to embody the fantasy of Southern California." Proof of the brand’s comeback? New fans

Cannes Review: Van Sant's 'Sea of Trees' is a Very Interesting Mess

24 May 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Reporting from the Cannes Film Festival. The Sea of Trees is the latest from Gus Van Sant, a filmmaker with a very eclectic track record that proves he's not afraid to put himself out there and experiment. His movies may not always hit their mark but the passion and unique creative voice is always there. Despite early negative buzz at the festival, The Sea of Trees is far from the disaster Cannes audiences have made it out to be. The film is a bit long and flawed in some areas but extremely watchable. Cannes always needs a high-profile whipping boy and with its lush pedigree, this year Van Sant's The Sea of Trees fits the bill but in reality the opposite is true. This film is Gus Van Sant's best since Milk. Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is front-and-center in The Sea of Trees as Arthur Brennan, a washed-up science »

Matthew McConaughey's Response to Being Booed at Cannes Is Just So Matthew McConaughey

16 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts's new film, Sea of Trees, earned a rare distinction at Cannes Film Festival yesterday: it was one of the few movies in the film festival's recent history to earn a rousing round of boos at its premiere. Today, at a press conference for the project, reporters unsurprisingly asked about the chilly reception. "I real simply will say that people have as much right to boo as they do to ovate," McConaughey said diplomatically, seeming relaxed despite the negative reactions. "I'm happy to be invited to be here, that the film got in, and it was a great experience making the film," the ever-positive McConaughey added. "I'm working presently in the United States, but I wanted to make the time to come over. This is fun. I look at this as kind of dessert." McConaughey and Watts's new film was directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, »

2015 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 4: Sea of Trees “Gerry”manders Critics

16 May 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A film that explores the suicide theme might have become the first Croisette casualty, hara-kiri style. He has had a lengthy, healthy career moving between micro indie and studio projects, Sea of Trees follows in the footsteps of Milk, Restless (Un Certain Regard selection) and Promised Land. Palme d’Or winner back in 2003 for Elephant, Gus Van Sant‘s fourth film to appear in the Main Competition got an early screening the day before, and the response is reminiscent of how Even Cowgirls Get the Blues was critically received. Starring Matthew McConaughey who plays an American who travels to Japan’s “suicide forest” after the death of his wife (Naomi Watts) this also features Ken Watanabe.
