The series that made nature documentaries cool returns with an epic six-part sequel on February 18th, and composer Hans Zimmer stopped by “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” to play the sweeping theme song.

‘Abstract: The Art of Design’ Review: All The Season 1 Episodes, Ranked

10 February 2017 4:50 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Abstract: The Art of Design” is not necessarily a show we’d recommend for binge-viewing. The new Netflix series, streaming now following its Sundance 2017 premiere, is far from bad. Executive produced by Morgan Neville, the documentarians assembled to capture the spotlighted subjects have done a masterful job, by and large, of highlighting the unique sort of artistry at work here. However, episode by episode, every installment strikes such a similar tone and mood that to truly appreciate the difference in aethestics and disciplines on display, you’ll want to space them out.

You might also favor certain installments over others, whether it be because of subject matter or the execution itself. We reviewed the first two installments last month, finding it to be a fascinating approach to the importance of design we might otherwise take for granted. But now that we’ve been able to see all eight episodes, we have our favorites. »

Witness the Evolution of Cinematography with Compilation of Oscar Winners

6 February 2017 1:47 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This past weekend, the American Society of Cinematographers awarded Greig Fraser for his contribution to Lion as last year’s greatest accomplishment in the field. Of course, his achievement was just a small sampling of the fantastic work from directors of photography, but it did give us a stronger hint at what may be the winner on Oscar night. Ahead of the ceremony, we have a new video compilation that honors all the past winners in the category at the Academy Awards

Created by Burger Fiction, it spans the stunning silent landmark Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans all the way up to the end of Emmanuel Lubezki‘s three-peat win for The Revenant. Aside from the advancements in color and aspect ration, it’s a thrill to see some of cinema’s most iconic shots side-by-side. However, the best way to experience the evolution of the craft is by »

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perception

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionGroundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionAdriana Floridia2/2/2017 10:30:00 Am

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. Then there is Harold RamisGroundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman, Phil Connors mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again. On a traditional level the movie is a comedy, but it actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years.  

In honour of Groundhog Day, we’re taking a look back at ten other films that deal with time, memory, dreams, and repeated experiences. While there may be no film that tackles the topic as precisely as Groundhog Day, these »

The Death of Good Screenwriting in Hollywood

23 January 2017 11:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the death of good screenwriting in Hollywood…

Awards season is in full swing, so it seems somewhat ironic to come and bemoan the dearth of good screenwriting within the modern studio system, but I’m going to anyway. Putting aside the award nominated films, my focus is more on those films that are more financially motivated or targeted toward genre fans. Let’s face it, La La Land, whilst it won’t redefine screenwriting, is going to be hard to pick apart. There is still good work out there, but it’s fewer and far between, and those films where the returns matter above all else, seem to be becoming increasingly more and more dumbed down. It seems like writers now get hired to write any old guff and the quality of the final draft is of no consequence.

The first subject of my ire is Avi Lerner, »

Oscars 2017: What Are Mel Gibson’s Chances of a Best Director Nomination For ‘Hacksaw Ridge’?

19 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Mel Gibson has a chance at being nominated in the best director category at the 2017 Oscars for Hacksaw Ridge — but there is definitely some competition. While the 61-year-old multihyphenate has already received nominations at the Critics’ Choice Awards and the Golden Globes, snagging one from the Academy is not certain. How often have directors been gotten those two precursor nominations only to fall short of the all-important Oscar nomination?

Over the course of his lengthy career, Gibson has primarily been an actor. That being said, the New York native has stepped behind the camera and directed five feature films to date: 1993’s The Man Without a Face, 1995’s Braveheart, 2004’s The Passion of the Christ, 2006’s Apocalypto, and 2016’s Hacksaw Ridge — with the announcement of another, Berserker, on the horizon. The most successful of the bunch, »

Thomas Tull’s Departure Puts Pressure on Wanda to Prove Legendary’s Value

18 January 2017 3:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Almost from the moment it was announced a year ago, Wanda’s $3.5-billion acquisition of Legendary Entertainment drew criticism that the deal was too expensive, the company was still loss-making, and the best assets walked out of the building each night.

The exit with immediate effect of Legendary founder Thomas Tull now serves to emphasize the “risk” side of the high-risk, high-reward company responsible for “Inception” and “Pacific Rim” as Jack Gao, the senior Wanda executive who was instrumental in acquiring Legendary, takes over as interim CEO.

Gao’s twin challenges will be to prove that his acquisition strategy is still intact and to find a replacement for Tull who combines Tull’s fanboy instincts with the sensitivities needed to stay tuned in to the fast-evolving Chinese audience. It may be a narrow field.

Tull, who shuns Hollywood socializing, has had an eye on China since Legendary was founded. He »

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types

17 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »

Musical Maestro Hans Zimmer May Return To Superhero Genre After All

17 January 2017 7:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s going on 12 months since Hans Zimmer formally announced his retirement from the superhero genre – a decision made in the aftermath of his contribution to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – but it seems the German composer has left the door open for a possible return.

Chatting to The West Australian (via Batman-News), Zimmer touched base on his time spent in the genre of costumed heroes, which also spans Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and The Dark Knight trilogy, before noting that he’d consider another superhero gig providing “somebody comes along with a great idea.”

“It’s true,” Zimmer said of his retirement from superhero films, before adding, “until somebody comes along with a great idea. “How many people have to go write two Batman themes in their lifetime? I needed a break from it. And I needed to categorically say ‘I need a break’.”

Tom Hardy on Whether or Not He’s in Contention to Play James Bond: ‘If I Mention It, It’s Gone’

16 January 2017 2:09 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s looking less and less likely that Daniel Craig will reprise his role as James Bond in the next installment of the long-running spy franchise, and speculation about who might succeed him has run rampant in recent months. Among the presumed contenders is Tom Hardy, who may or may not have just confirmed that he’s in the running by not actually speaking about it.

If I mention it, it’s gone.” Hardy, whose FX series “Taboo” premiered last week, will next be seen in his “Inception” and “The Dark Knight Rises »

Tom Hardy Wants to Play James Bond for Director Christopher Nolan

16 January 2017 1:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The latest James Bond movie, Spectre, which was the fourth to feature Daniel Craig as 007, came out more than a year ago. Nothing about the next movie in the long-running franchise has been revealed at this time. It isn't even clear if Daniel Craig is going to return, though Sony really wants him to. With that in mind, there have been a lot of names thrown around when it comes to who may replace Craig as the next Bond. Tom Hardy's name has regularly been mentioned, and now it seems like he has personally dumped some fuel on that fire.

The actor recently spoke with The Daily Beast in order to promote his new show Taboo. The subject of those James Bond rumors did come up. Surprisingly, while not actually saying much, he seemed to confirm that he is at the very least interested, but seemingly implied that some »

Tom Hardy says Christopher Nolan should direct Bond 25

16 January 2017 3:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Casting the next James Bond isn’t the only task on the agenda for the producers of the 007 franchise, as Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes has decided to pass on the torch and see what other filmmakers can do with the property for Bond 25. And, according to Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road), the heavy crown should next lie on his InceptionThe Dark Knight Rises and Dunkirk director, Christopher Nolan.

“You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it you’re automatically out of the race, ” said Hardy when asked by The Daily Beast if he’d be interested in the role of Bond. “So I can’t possibly comment on that one!

Oscars: VFX Contenders Put On a Show at Academy’s Annual Bake-Off

13 January 2017 9:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ annual visual effects bake-off sees each of the 10 final contenders for the Oscar present a five-minute introduction and a 10-minute reel. For the first time ever this year, the artists behind each entry answered questions in a panel-style Q&A.

At the close of the evening, though, visual effects legend Bill Taylor closed things out with a speech urging fellow members to vote for the “best visual effects in a movie, not the best movie with visual effects.” With internal criticism of last year’s “Ex-Machina” victory still on many members’ minds, his comments struck some as a “warning,” and others as unnecessary and inaccurate.

A24’s surprise winner took down four big studio and major effects house contenders at the 88th annual Oscars: “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Martian,” “The Revenant” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” This year, the »
