Watch: Reflect On Martin Scorsese's Use Of Mirrors With This Supercut

22 January 2015 3:49 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, if you don’t believe it, Ali Shirazi makes a compelling argument — Martin Scorsese loves mirrors. Yep. Mirrors. In his nearly three-minute video, Shirazi makes a pretty solid case for Scorsese’s frequent use of mirrors in film. Kudos to the editor for integrating “The Big Shave” — Scorsese’s 1968 short — and tracking the motif from there on out. “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull,” “Shutter Island.” They all fit the bill. Whether it’s Leo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, or one of the plethora of other stars Scorsese has worked with over his illustrious career, it’s not uncommon for moviegoers to observe them glancing — and talking — into a mirror. What is it about mirrors? Is it that they convey a reflection on humanity, on ourselves, that we make the determinations about? Are they how we perceive our reality? Is what you see in the mirror different than what I see? »

Jennifer Lawrence Signs Up For James Cameron-Produced The Dive

17 January 2015 3:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the actress with the most box office success signs up to collaborate with the filmmaker that enjoys the same status, it becomes big news very quickly – and so, we have The Dive. The project has been on James Cameron’s back-burner for many years, but never really ccrystallized In 2012, the director officially vacated the helm – a move that opened the door to director Francis Lawrence, riding high after making the majority of the Hunger Games franchise. With Cameron now firmly ensconced in the producer’s chair, Francis Lawrence will shoot The Dive with his Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence in the lead role.

The film tells the true story of ambition and tragedy, centred on the record-breaking French free-diver, Audrey Mestre, and Francisco “Pipin” Ferreras. Having grown up in a family of diving enthusiasts, Mestre accrued vast experience in underwater sports, and studied marine biology. After meeting the famed free diver, »

Watchers on the Wall: 'Game of Thrones' and the Crumbling Barrier Between TV and Movies

9 January 2015 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's surely no better place than an IMAX screen to watch a story about a 700-foot-high wall.

But the announcement this week that the two most recent "Game of Thrones" episodes (the epic ice battle episode "The Watchers on the Wall" and the shocking Season 4 finale "The Children") and a Season 5 trailer are coming to IMAX screens on Jan. 23 brings to mind another wall under assault -- the increasingly academic wall between movies and TV.

Granted, it makes sense for HBO to give theatergoers a healthy helping of its popular swords-and-skin fantasy series. After all, as large as George R.R. Martin's saga looms in pop culture chatter, there's still a majority of Americans who don't subscribe to the premium cable channel and haven't seen the show. The IMAX event is a good way to mobilize both newbies and longtime fans and to get both groups primed for this spring's new season. »

After scripting Terminator Genisys for Skydance Productions, Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have been staked to what Skydance is calling a two year first-look plus consulting deal. David Ellison’s production/financing concern wants to integrate the duo in multiple lines of its growing event-fare business. There is a first look at all theatrical and digital projects developed by the team, along with consultancy on overall content.

“Laeta and Patrick are first-class storytellers and world builders” said Skydance CEO David Ellison. “The work they have done to help us create the new Terminator trilogy is simply phenomenal and is only the beginning of the stories we are going to tell together. I am honored to welcome them into the Skydance family.”

Kalogridis and Lussier first teamed with Skydance in 2012 on an assignment to script an original science fiction adventure film hatched by Skydance. That led to the job writing Terminator Genisys, »
