Christopher Nolan Reteams with Interstellar Cinematographer for New Film Dunkirk

5 February 2016 11:32 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Say what you will about Interstellar and its plot, but I found the film to be a visual masterpiece. Between the grounded shots on earth and the ethereal shots in space, the movie was an absolute joy to watch. Those who enjoyed the look of that picture, like myself, will be happy to hear that director Christopher Nolan will once again be working with Hoyte van Hoytema (who was the director of photography on Interstellar) for his next movie, Dunkirk, the American Society of Cinematographers reports.

Dunkirk will be filmed from an original screenplay by Christopher Nolan himself, and will be his first attempt at a war film. Given the filmmakers recent foray into the abstract with movies like Inception and Interstellar, this will be a nice refresh for those looking for a more grounded picture for Nolan.

Dunkirk will be shot on a combination of both IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format film, »

2016 Forecast as Record Year for Foreign Shoots in France

1 February 2016 10:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — In the wake of France’s decision to increase the rate on its Tax Rebate for International Productions (Trip) rebate scheme from 20% to 30%, effective from the start of this year, a series of high-profile foreign productions have booked shoots in Gaul in 2016, including Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” lensing in Northern France in May, Neil Jordan’s 10-part Cote d’Azur-based TV crime series “Riviera,” and a yet undisclosed major U.S. TV Series expected to start production in the Fall.

Other confirmed shoots for 2016 include Clay Jeter’s sci-fi pic “Io.”

France’s domestic tax rebate scheme, for official French productions, has also increased from 20% to 30%.

“The increase to 30% is a huge change,” says line producer John Bernard of Peninsula Film. “It’s been further amplified by the rising value of the dollar. It’s been absolutely essential.”

“30% is a wonderful new development,” says line producer Raphael Benoliel, of Firstep. »

‘Star Wars’: Director Colin Trevorrow Says ‘Episode IX’ Will Be Shot on Film, Not Digital

28 January 2016 3:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Colin Trevorrow prefers to watch period pictures that are shot on film instead of on a digital camera, the director behind “Jurassic World” said during a press conference at the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday.

“There’s something in my brain that says, ‘well they didn’t have video cameras then,'” said Trevorrow.

A belief that digital cameras are anachronistic will impact his choices on his next project. When Trevorrow slides behind the camera on “Star Wars: Episode IX,” he plans to use film stock.

“It’s a period film,” Trevorrow joked. “It happened a long time ago.”

Trevorrow’s comments came during a panel discussion on the merits of film at a time when many theaters are switching over to digital projectors and studios are pushing directors to abandon shooting on film, arguing that the process is cumbersome and expensive. He was joined by Christopher Nolan, who has »

Thn’s top five Leonardo DiCaprio performances

28 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has had one of the most interesting and diverse careers in Hollywood. After all, not many actors can claim to have worked with James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan. On top of that, he has starred in a groundbreaking Shakespeare adaptation, an acclaimed summer blockbuster and the 12 year record holder as the highest grossing film of all time.

Now with the release of The Revenant, it’s the perfect time to celebrate DiCaprio’s many standout performances throughout his career.

Check out my top 5 performances from DiCaprio below and pray that he finally receives his Academy Award next month:

5. Inception (2010)

Before 2010 DiCaprio had carefully avoided both action blockbusters (no Titanic doesn’t count) and science fiction films. However, after a little known director called Christopher Nolan broke box office records with the universally acclaimed film The Dark Knight, he apparently changed his mind.

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 4: #25-1

26 January 2016 11:17 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our countdown of the top 100 films of the 21st Century (so far) concludes here with the top 25.

Click here for Part 1! (#100-76)

Click here for Part 2! (#75-51)

Click here for Part 3! (#50-26)

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »

Emily S. Whitten: Seven Movies for Surviving Snowzilla

26 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past weekend we here in Washington DC got a lot of snow. Um… “A whole lot of snow”? …Okay, how about, “a metric ton of snow”? Ooh… “The fourth heaviest snowstorm dating to 1884.” There. I think that sums it up nicely.

Given this, I (not even kidding) have not left my home in five days (but I’m still sane! No really, I promise! The purple bunnies in my pantry told me so.) And of course, being a very practical person, since I knew the storm was coming I ensured I was well-stocked with all the necessary items beforehand. But then, around the end of Day 1, as the snowdrifts began inching into the two-foot range on my windowsills, I began to wonder what I would do to entertain myself if the power went out (taking with it, one might assume, the Internet).

“Ah-ha!” I said to myself. “I have »

Ronda Rousey on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

24 January 2016 7:03 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There are times in which it's fairly easy to predict ahead of time whether or not an episode of Saturday Night Live has the capacity to be either really good or really bad. But with Ronda Rousey, the predictive needle was all over the place. The potential equally existed for a surprising, breakout performance from the Mma star or a 90-minute trainwreck. There really was no way to know which one would unfold until the episode started.

Well, unfortunately, things primarily went the way of Door Number Two, with some »

Saturday Night Live Recap: Ronda Rousey Hosts

24 January 2016 4:16 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our host for tonight is Ronda Rousey, who has won a lot of medals and championships for being Very, Very Strong. Like, seriously. She could knock you out in a second. It is a little terrifying, but also inspiring in a “You go, girl” kind of way. And now she’s got a burgeoning acting career, with roles in The Expendables 3, Furious 7, and Entourage 1 and God Willing Only. She will make her comedy debut in the upcoming Do Nothing Bitches, based on a script by Sisters writer Paula Pell in which Rousey plays a bootcamp instructor putting suburban housewives, one of which is played by Tina Fey, in their place. Tonight seemed to be Rousey’s chance to prove her comedy chops, but she honestly didn’t get much of a chance-- she only truly starred in one sketch, and made minimal to no appearances in all of the others. »

Why 'The Beach' Is a Lost Leonardo DiCaprio Classic

22 January 2016 8:23 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Every few months, RollingStone.com shines a spotlight on a forgotten, neglected, overshadowed, underappreciated and/or critically maligned film that we love in a series called "Be Kind, Rewind."  In honor of The Revenant and Leonardo DiCaprio's widely predicted Oscar win, we're focusing on an older Leo movie that's been unfairly put in the "noble failure" pile: The Beach.

It's February 2000, a little over two years since Titanic plowed directly into the zeitgeist, and the film's 25-year-old star is now slightly more famous than the ship of dreams itself. »

Blockbusters: are big films all year round a good thing?

We’re seeing big cinema releases almost every weekend now. But is this a good thing?

Do you remember during 2014, where lots of fans stubbornly declared Captain America: The Winter Soldier the best film of that summer despite its opening in March/April? It was joined by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in trying to steal a march on the competition, but clearly when you think big blockbusters, they’re associated with a certain time of year. And given how for the studios, summer season occupies a full third of the year from May to August, and Christmas the sweet period from November all the way through to New Year, that should be plenty of room for the Avengers, Star Wars and Jurassic Parks of the world, right?

Except that there are plenty more 'tentpoles' (big releases to prop up the studio’s bottom line) being made and »

Composer Lorne Balfe’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi – Music from the Motion Picture Available Jan. 15

15 January 2016 6:07 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Paramount Music will release the 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi – Music from the Motion Picture digitally on January 15, 2016. The album features the film’s original score by Lorne Balfe (Terminator Genisys, Penguins Of Madagascar).

“The film is really about the soldiers’ ordeal and how they coped with the situation at hand,” said Balfe. “Michael (Bay) does a great job keeping the film from becoming political. The film is really here to honor the soldiers and the men and women who ultimately had to step up and do everything they could to save as many people as possible.”

From director Michael Bay, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi is the gripping true story of six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012.  When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right. »

Oscars: Number of Notables Landed First-Ever Nominations Today

14 January 2016 10:22 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The time has finally come and the Academy has released its official list of Oscar nominees for the 88th Academy Awards. A number of surprises were in store for those who have been following this year’s race closely, as those that once seemed like sure-thing contenders, such as Carol for best picture and Ridley Scott for best director for The Martian, were left out.

Among the familiar faces on this year’s list of nominees is last year’s best director winner, Alejandro G. Inarritu, who, over the weekend, won the Golden Globe for best director, who is nominated in the category again this year for his work on the Western, The Revenant, as well as last year’s best actor winner Eddie Redmayne, who won for his portrayal of physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, who scored another best actor nomination »

How They Got Practical with VFX for the Oscar-Nominated 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

14 January 2016 9:44 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In keeping with J.J. Abrams' mandate for getting practical with Oscar-nominated "The Force Awakens" effects, Neal Scanlan (Oscar winner for "Babe") helped bring to life the adorable Bb-8 droid and the semi-mechanical Luggabeast, while special effects coordinator extraordinaire Chris Corbould (Oscar winner for "Inception") brought his usual sense of style to the explosive action. "There were two great things about Bb-8. The design is absolutely J.J.'s and he nailed it with his charismatic drawing of a ball with a dome on the head," explained Scanlan, who came out of retirement to set up the creature shop in London. "But not to take anything away from that, Ralph McQuarrie [the original 'Star Wars' concept designer] had done similar ideas of a ball, and the ball is also very current in today's thinking of droids or helpers of how the future may go.  "Really, taking Bb-8 from there was all about the personality. »

3rd Rock from the Sun Turns 20, Plus 10 Other Roles That Led Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Stardom

13 January 2016 8:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Twenty years ago this week, an oddball NBC sitcom introduced viewers to a family of space aliens who, in the grand tradition of Alf, Mork and Mindy and My Favorite Martian, were attempting to hide out on Earth. It was a silly premise, but 3rd Rock from the Sun ended up outlasting those other three shows, running a full six seasons. And we can credit its success to a talented comedic cast that included John Lithgow, Kristen Johnston, French Stewart and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was only 14 when the show premiered. Seriously, look at him - babyfaced and long-haired and oh-so »

Wanda buys Legendary for $3.5bn

11 January 2016 2:58 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

China’s Dalian Wanda Group has finalised its acquisition of the genre company in a deal that means it has spent at least around $6.85bn on non-Chinese entertainment entities within the past four years.

The $3.5bn acquisition puts in the shade Wanda’s acquisition of AMC Entertainment for $2.6bn in late 2012 and marks China’s largest cross-border cultural acquisition to date.

It does not effect Legendary’s five-year production and co-financing partnership with Universal Pictures that runs through 2019.

News of a possible deal first surfaced last week. Thomas Tull will continue as chairman and CEO of Legendary and oversee day-to-day operations. According to a press release he will “significantly participate in the success of the company with Wanda.”

Legendary’s properties include the upcoming summer release Warcraft (which is partly funded by China’s Tencent Holdings) and The Great Wall – set to be the biggest film ever to shoot in China – as well as the Batman and Hangover »

Why ‘The Revenant’ Proves Leonardo DiCaprio May Be Hollywood’s Biggest Star

10 January 2016 12:18 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2002, Leonardo DiCaprio was at a career crossroads.

His floppy blond mane and soulful blue eyes had threatened to stop teenage hearts around the globe as he slipped from Kate Winslet’s grip and slid into an icy ocean in “Titanic.” The unprecedented box office returns for the romantic drama transformed DiCaprio into a pinup with few equals, but it had also made him a prisoner of its success, hounded by paparazzi and dismissed as a party boy, whose dalliances with models were drawing more attention than his performances.

It didn’t help that DiCaprio’s post-“Titanic” roles as an American traveler in “The Beach” and as a French monarch in “The Man in the Iron Mask” left critics cold and were only modest box office performers. He seemed burdened by fame and risked being written off as a supernova who frittered away his talent in the white hot »
