The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has invited 271 individuals to become members, with the list reflecting the org’s determination to bring more diversity to its ranks.

Every year, the list of invitations includes several recent Oscar nominees. That’s true this year as well, with letters going out Wednesday to a cross-section of people including 2013 contenders Barkhad Abdi, Lupita Nyong’o, Hayao Miyazaki, Pharrell Williams, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, plus such creatives as Megan Ellison, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Steve Coogan, Jason Statham, William Chang Suk Ping, Joan Sobel, Tracey Seaward, Mads Mikkelsen and Chantal Akerman.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

'The Lion King': 20 Things You Didn't Know About the Disney Classic

14 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sure, you've seen "The Lion King" dozens of times. You own the soundtrack and you've caught the Broadway show. Maybe you even had "Lion King" sheets and went to bed singing "Hakuna Matata."

And what "Lion King" fan doesn't know about the scene where stars supposedly spell out "Sex"? We bet there are still some things you didn't know about the beloved Disney classic, which turns 20 on June 15.

1. When writer Irene Mecchi was hired, she was told that the story pitch was "'Bambi in Africa' meets 'Hamlet,'" so she started calling it "Bamlet."

2. Disney believed that "Pocahontas" (which came out in 1995) would be the bigger, more prestigious film and put all its key animators on it instead. Story artist Brenda Chapman (who went on to direct "Brave" and "The Prince of Egypt") thought the story "wasn't very good" and writer Burny Mattinson declared, "I don't know who is »

New Plot Details For Pixar’s Inside Out Revealed

11 June 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the middling success of Cars 2Brave and Monsters University, Pixar has been stuck in a bit of a rut over the past few years. Luckily, the animation studio’s upcoming slate looks primed to deliver the same kind of inventive, exhilarating family adventures that put Pixar on the map in the first place. And none of them look more promising than 2015′s Inside Out, which travels inside the mind of a young girl.

We’ve gotten bits and pieces of information about Inside Out over the past few months, but director Peter Docter (Up) actually gave attendees of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival an extended look at the film yesterday. According to Docter, like Up, Inside Out starts out with a montage of a young girl named Riley in her early years, showing color-coded and anthropomorphized emotions appearing based on corresponding events. One observer sent the following description to Pixar Post. »

'Twilight' director Bill Condon will translate Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' to live action (Updated)

4 June 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Update: A couple of new details here. You might be wondering, since the original report doesn't mention any story details, how exactly this thing is going to play out. Sources tell HitFix that Condon won't only be drawing from the 1991 Disney film. In his pitch to the studio, the director said he would also include most, if not all, of the Menken/Rice songs from the Broadway musical that ran for 13 years from 1994 to 2007. It will be a "straight-forward, live action, large-budget movie musical," we're told. See below for the earlier story. Earlier: With "Maleficent" hitting big (though, contextually, not as big as the breathless media seems to think), and an "Alice in Wonderland" sequel on the way, it's clear Disney is interested in testing the stamina of the company's intellectual properties in the live action space. Add one more to the schedule: "Beauty and the Beast." Variety reports that »

3 June 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

We’ve known for some time that Marvel has been interested in producing a Doctor Strange movie. At one point, they considered Johnny Depp for the titular role, but that didn’t pan out. We even have our own list of potential candidates.Today, the first big announcement for the film occurred – Scott Derrickson (Sinister), who had previously been rumored to be on the director shortlist,  confirmed that he’d be helming the film, beating out Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) and Mark Andrews (Brave) for the job.

And while that was all well in good, it wasn’t the only bit of Doctor Strange news for today. Tucked inside a report from Click to continue reading ‘Doctor Strange’ Rumor: Will Jared Leto Play the Sorcerer Supreme?

Derrickson To Direct Marvel's "Doctor Strange"

3 June 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It appears we have a director for Marvel's upcoming "Doctor Strange" movie, indicating the film will likely be one of the studio's Phase Three films.

Filmmaker Scott Derrickson ("Sinister," "The Day the Earth Stood Still") has confirmed on Twitter that he will take the helm of the film as his next project. Derrickson most recently filmed the Eric Bana-led supernatural thriller "Deliver Us From Evil" which opens July 2nd.

Derrickson was first reported being in contention earlier this year, and it looks like he's won the gig ahead of the other rumored names like Jonathan Levine ("Warm Bodies") and Mark Andrews ("Brave").

In the comics, the character is a self-centred New York surgeon robbed of his skills after a car accident. He soon finds his way to a healer in the Himalayas where he learned to tap into psychic powers to battle evil wizards and other wrongdoers.

Scott Derrickson in Talks to Direct Marvel’s Doctor Strange

3 June 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel still may be without a director for Ant-Man (which is scheduled for release in a little over a year), but the studio has found its Doctor Strange director.  We learned a few months ago that a number of filmmakers were in the running to take the helm of the comics adaptation, including Warm Bodies helmer Jonathan Levine, Brave director Mark Andrews, and horror filmmaker Scott Derrickson.  It now appears that the latter is the choice to take on the gig, as the director behind Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose is in talks to bring Doctor Strange to fruition.  Hit the jump for more. Per Variety, Scott Derrickson is in talks to direct the comics adaptation Doctor Strange for Marvel.  Derrickson is a solid choice, as he has experience helming larger fare like The Day the Earth Stood Still remake, but in particular his handle of mood and »

Marvel Studios Has Found A Doctor Strange Director

3 June 2014 3:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For the last couple of weeks, Marvel Studios has been working hard to find a filmmaker to replace Edgar Wright for 2015's Ant-Man, but that's not stopping them from thinking about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While that director search continues, new reports now say that the studio has found the man that they want to make their Doctor Strange film: Scott Derrickson. This news comes to us from Variety, which adds that talks are still very early but that he is the studio's top pick and should be made official very shortly. We first learned that Derrickson was in the mix all the way back in March when he was mentioned on a shortlist of candidates for the Doctor Strange gig. At the time, other filmmakers being considered were Jonathan Levine, the director of 50/50 and Warm Bodies, and Mark Andrews, the co-director of Brave. Apparently the last »

26 May 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the mixed success of its three most recent releases, Cars 2Brave and Monsters University, have caused some to wonder whether Pixar’s golden age has drawn to a close, there’s no denying that the animation giant has turned out some of the greatest family films of all time in its 28 years of existence.

Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ Synopsis Reveals New Plot Details

26 May 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

There are currently four movies identified as “upcoming” on the official Pixar website – though we know more are in development – and of them, only one is a new installment in an established franchise (the Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory). The other two movies are The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out; each of those are original works from the acclaimed computer-animation studio, scheduled to open theatrically in 2015, with Inside Out being the first out of the gate.

Inside Out is the latest Pixar film to be directed by Peter Docter – of Monsters, Inc. and Up fame – with Ronaldo Del Carmen (story artist on Brave and Monsters University) listed as co-director. Equally promising ...

Alien – Ridley Scott’s Masterpiece Released 35 Years Ago Today: May 25, 1979

25 May 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Avco Center Cinemas, Westwood, CA

On Friday, director Ridley Scott arrived in Sydney, Australia, reportedly to scout for locations for Prometheus 2.

Prometheus (2012) starred Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba, was well received by critics and subsequently a box office hit. The sequel is scheduled for a release in March 2016.

I’ll bet Scott never thought in a million years that he’d be scouting locations for another Alien movie almost 35 years to the day after the original hit theaters.

Jump back to opening weekend… May 25, 1979. “In space no one can hear you scream”

I was a 12 year girl when my mother, after much pleading, took me to the Showcase Cinemas in East Hartford, Ct on that Friday night. These were the days prior to the words “spoilers” and “internet” when audiences went into a film blind and when parents didn’t take their children to R rated movies. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’

16 May 2014 4:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you think training Vikings to coexist with dragons sounds tough, try following up an iconic coming-of-age story within the halls of a publicly traded animation studio. The pressures to make a giant four-quadrant monstrosity must be enormous, and yet, like his unflappable hero Hiccup, “How to Train Your Dragon 2” writer-director Dean DeBlois has prevailed, serving up DreamWorks Animation’s strongest sequel yet — one that breathes fresh fire into the franchise, instead of merely rehashing the original. Braver than “Brave,” more fun than “Frozen” and more emotionally satisfying than so many of its live-action counterparts, “Dragon” delivers. And good thing, too, since Dwa desperately needs another toon to cross the half-billion-dollar threshold.

Set five years after the previous story ends, this latest adventure vastly expands the world and characters suggested by Cressida Cowell’s Ya book series, which informed the spirit if not necessarily the exact plot of the 2011 film. »

Billy Connolly: 14 of the Big Yin's best moments outside stand-up

14 May 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Billy Connolly presents the final part of his moving, yet still hilarious, ITV documentary series Big Send Off tonight (May 14).

The Big Yin is best known for his prolific stand-up comedy career over the past six decades, but he has often shown off many different strings to his bow, taking in the world of TV, film, music and charity work.

To mark Connolly's latest excellent project, Digital Spy takes a look at just some of his best moments outside his stand-up work.

1. The Humblebums

Before Billy started his stand-up career, he sang with the late Gerry Rafferty of 'Baker Street' fame in the folk group The Humblebums, along with Tam Harvey. Largely forgotten outside the folk world, they did produce some genuinely brilliant tracks, both moving and funny. Their gigs often featured Connolly chatting to the audience between songs, eventually leading to him giving the comedy thing a go full-time. »
