‘The Defiant Ones’ Director Allen Hughes on How He Got Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, and Dr. Dre to Spill Secrets On Camera

9 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Sometimes, when you’re documenting history, you still have to make your own moments.

“When the camera’s rolling and when I yell cut, I made sure my team knew, ‘Don’t ever cut until the subject is off the set,'” Hughes said.

Some of the most satisfying moments in the new HBO docuseries, “The Defiant Ones” — an expansive, four-part history of the last four decades of popular music, premiering Sunday night on HBO — are candid ones. Interview subjects occasionally tinker away on a keyboard or wander around a living room. Stevie Nicks plunks out a tune on a baby grand. Eminem strolls right onto set and starts dishing. As Hughes described in a recent interview with IndieWire, those moments were part of the plan from the beginning.

“There’s always a veneer,” Hughes said. “People are being guarded about their image. From early on, I said, ‘Start the »

The Hunt Begins In Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 First Look

Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 Gallery 1 of 13   

Click to skip

More From The Web Click to zoom 

Despite thinking the Wonder Woman/Tasmanian Devil mashup was alright, the wealth of DC’s recently released Looney Tunes crossovers just haven’t managed to capture my interest. But, when you throw in the Dark Knight, I’ll give just about any absurd idea a read. Thus, I’ll be investing some time in Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 when it comes across my desk.

Some of the more stone-faced of you out there may ask how I could bring myself to do such a thing (the more light-hearted among you may very well be all in), but you, too, may give it a chance upon reading that “after a chance meeting with billionaire Bruce Wayne, Elmer Fudd’s obsession quickly escalates into stalking Batman through the dark alleys and high-class social settings of Gotham City. Welcome to Bat Season!” Yes, that all came from the official synopsis, showing us that we may end up seeing a darker side to Elmer.

Actually, if you’ve managed to browse through the gallery at the top, you’d see that writer Tom King and artist Lee Weeks somehow managed to make this look about as hard-boiled as something by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso, and as noir-ish as the legendary works of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Sure, we may not end up putting this in the same class as either Broken City or The Long Halloween, but you have to admit that it’s showing promise.

Also included will be a backup story more visually in line with classic Looney Tunes, also written by King, but with art provided by Byron Vaughns. That one, however, may not end up enthralling me as much, but I’ll still give it a whirl.

Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 arrives in comic shops next Wednesday, June 28. »

Patriots Day movie review: blurry portrait of a city

27 February 2017 9:33 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Unfocused like a 1970s cast-of-thousands disaster flick, and with little point beyond engaging in bland and easy propagandistic cheering. Boston deserves better. I’m “biast” (pro): have enjoyed Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg’s previous collaborations

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There are likely hundreds of amazing, moving stories to be told about the 2013 bombing at the finish line of Boston’s annual marathon… and dang if Patriots Day — named after the local holiday on which the bombing occurred — doesn’t seem to want to tell all of them all at once.

Patriots Day barely introduces us to one set of characters before jumping away to another.

Director and screenwriter (with Matt Cook and Joshua Zetumer) Peter Berg might have been more successful zooming in on star Mark Wahlberg’s composite cop character Tommy Saunders »

The 12 Mark Wahlberg films where he holds a gun on the poster

7 February 2017 12:21 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jake Wilson Feb 28, 2017

From The Big Hit to Patriots Day, we explore Mark Wahlberg's dozen films where he holds a gun on the promo poster....

Mark Wahlberg is a man of many talents. His rhymes are fresh, his frown is legendary, and it turns out he’s pretty decent in a bout of fisticuffs. 

See related  David Fincher's unfinished projects Looking back at David Fincher's Alien 3 House Of Cards season 5: everything we know so far

And then there's his acting. He has been in a wealth of films, usually fighting for, or alongside, the American flag. He's a gun-toting ass-kicker, and the world seems to dig it.

This is his game, his brand. Wahlberg moves between moral, no-nonsense cop and powerful, maverick law breaker and whilst he doesn’t always play armed characters, it is through these films that we can see the strands that »

Exclusive Interview – Kyle Chandler talks Manchester by the Sea

12 January 2017 5:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kyle Chandler discusses his role as Joe Chandler in Manchester by the Sea

When Kyle Chandler was preparing for his role in Kenneth Lonergan’s eagerly awaited new drama, Manchester by the Sea, he admits that the prospect of nailing his character’s distinctive accent was troubling him.

“I think I almost said ‘no’ just because of the Boston accent. I might have even asked Kenny, ‘can I keep my Texas accent? Does that work? Maybe my character went away and came back!’” he laughs. “But we had a wonderful dialect coach, and that all worked out. I think I did a pretty good job, and she kept a whip over me.”

Kyle spent many of his childhood years in Georgia and now lives in Texas with his wife and family, and his natural voice has that distinctive southern drawl. But he certainly did more than a “pretty good job” playing Joe. »
