Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

Alfie Wickers is probably the worst teacher to (dis)grace the English education system, but no one cares about their pupils quite as much as Alfie does. Having completed their GCSEs, Alfie is keen for his class to join him on one last hurrah and what follows is a coming of age story like no other, the best school trip ever!

The Bad Education Movie sees Whitehall reuniting with Harry Enfield (Kevin & Perry Go Large), Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey), Sarah Solemani (Him & Her) and his class of pupils Ethan Lawrence, Layton Williams, Nikki Runeckles, Kae Alexander, Weruche Opia, Jack Binstead and Charlie Wernham, »

Listen To A Clip From Composer Lorne Balfe’s Terminator Genisys Score

27 June 2015 5:36 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Grammy winning composer Lorne Balfe creates an action-packed, emotive score for Paramount Pictures’ and Skydance ProductionsTerminator Genisys, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, and Jai Courtney. Oscar winning composer Hans Zimmer is the Executive Music Producer.

With the movie building from 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, including shot-for-shot recreations, Lorne Balfe’s score needed to honor the tradition of the past Terminator films while adding bold, new music to fit the action and emotions of Genisys.

Producer David Ellison says, “This is the largest scale Terminator movie that’s ever been made. There are bigger action sequences in Genisys than any prior Terminator film.”

In addition to propelling the action, Balfe’s score needed to tap into the film’s emotional core as it explores themes of freedom and guardianship. “The score contains everything but the kitchen sink. It’s a hybrid score, and although there are these massive action cues, »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

‘Jurassic World,’ ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and Tom Holkenborg’s new shit

17 June 2015 4:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jurassic World is fine. Massive blockbuster earnings aside, it’s neither contrived enough to feel like another lesser sequel  nor original enough to stray too far from Spielberg’s 1993 original. That uneasy cradle — between ingenuity and brand loyalty — is where tentpole franchises and their music have come to rest. With Furious 7, Atlantic Records threw dub step and electro-house music onto another collection of so-so promotional hip-hop. Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson only squeak out brief homages to John Barry rather than admit how indebted to Roger Moore Bond Kingsman: The Secret Service really is. Even Danny Elfman and Brian Tyler never stray far from Alan Silvestri’s original “Transformers meets Mission Impossible” theme in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Blockbuster movie composition is, like the studio system in 2015, sturdy, safe and kinda boring. Michael Giacchino’s score for Jurassic World is the latest to fit the mold. Like the movie itself, »

Czechs Present Enhanced Production Incentives to Hollywood Producers

17 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Czech Republic is making adjustments to its production incentives to make it easier for studio films and other big-budget productions to access the cash rebate.

The country offers filmmakers who shoot there a 20% rebate on the Czech production costs and 10% on above-the-line expenses. The Czech Cinematography Fund, which administers the program, has allocated approximately $49 million to 71 film and television projects that are shooting this year and next.

Ludmila Claussova, the Czech film commissioner, is meeting with studio executives and independent producers in Los Angeles this week to present the benefits of the enhanced production rebates. The Consulate General of the Czech Republic and the Czech Film Commission hosted a discussion on the topic Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

The rebate will no longer be subject to a yearly cap. Producers will be able to register at any time and immediately receive a »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Says 'Sandman' is Still Coming Along Nicely, Just Slowly

8 June 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now it's time to talk about the DC Comics movie everyone seems to have forgotten about, Sandman. Way back in December 2013, it was announced Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, Looper) was going to produce an adaption of DC Comic's "Sandman." Not much info was given at the time, but it was rumored he may not only direct, but star as the lead character Morpheus. News about the movie stopped flowing shortly after the announcement. In August 2014, we got our first update that the movie was still going on, but not much else was said. Now, a-year-and-a-half after the first announcement, we finally get a decent update. In an interview with MTV, Gordon-Levitt talks a little about the film, saying, "It's slow but steady. It's a really complicated adaptation because those comics, they're brilliant. But they're not written as a whole...'Sandman' was written over the course of whatever -- I forget exactly, »

Failure, subversion and hideous clothes: John Waters shares his life lessons

8 June 2015 2:57 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

John Waters gave the commencement speech at Rhode Island School of Design, and offered a wealth of wisdom: from embracing failure, to the importance of letting your kids be weird

The vogue for stars dispensing wisdom to halls of college graduates continues: just last week we had Christopher Nolan explaining the end of Inception and telling kids to follow not their dreams, but their realities.

Now footage has been uploaded of John Waters giving his own speech, at Rhode Island School of Design, where the Pope of Trash – known for Hairspray, Cry Baby and other bits of delirious celluloid filth – offers an array of advice that is refreshingly specific, rather than filled with generic suggestions to, well, follow your dreams. Here are his best bits.

The New York Film Festival lands a high-wire opening act

4 June 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Robert Zemeckis' "The Walk," which tells the story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit, has been selected as the opening night presentation of this year's New York Film Festival. Petit's 1974 walk between the Twin Towers of New York's World Trade Center was fodder for the 2008 documentary "Man on Wire," which won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Petit in Zemeckis' film. Given that the setting of Petit's walk, Nyff is an understandable place to make the bow, particularly given Sony's recent experiences there with films like "The Social Network" and "Captain Phillips." Indeed, said Zemeckis, "'The Walk' is a New York story, so I am delighted to be presenting the film to New York audiences first. My hope is that Festival audiences will be immersed in the spectacle, but also be enraptured by the celebration of a passionate artist who helped give the wonderful towers a soul. »

Inception left one very big question hanging, and five years later fans are still talking about it. And so is Christopher Nolan. While giving a commencement speech at Princeton University, the director touched upon the much-debated final sequence of his dream-world epic.

Christopher Nolan Revisits 'Inception' Ending During Princeton Graduation

1 June 2015 3:25 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The ending of Christopher Nolan's Inception has, and always will be, a conversation starter. We're nearly five years removed from its release (yes, it really has been that long), and it still feels as if the fate of Leonardo DiCaprio's Dom Cobb can provoke some of the more intense movie-oriented debates to be had (here's Brad's take on the ending back from when the film was released). Was Cobb really awake when he reunited with his children, or was he merely still in a pleasant dream that stands as a metaphor for finding peacec The film's now-famous last shot of the spinning top (his wife Mal's totem) only makes the finale harder to decipher. Even though it's not a clear-cut answer as to what happened, Nolan gave a fascinating look into the film's ending, among a bevy of other great ideas, during a speech at Princeton's graduation Monday »

Christopher Nolan Finally Tries To Explain Inception Ending, Still Talks In Circles

1 June 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Admit it, even after almost five years since it hit theaters, you still only kind of know what the ending of Inception was all about. Did Leonardo DiCaprio.s Cobb make it out of the dream state or is he stuck in the lowest levels of his subconscious? Did the top ever stop spinning? Moviegoers have been debating this back and forth for years, but now director Christopher Nolan is here to confuse you even more.  Nolan was a guest speaker at the Princeton Univesity commencement ceremony on Monday. The Hollywood Reporter has most of his speech transcribed, and it.s pretty longwinded. In an attempt to inspire the school.s graduates to look ahead to their futures, he brought up the ending of Inception, urging them to chase their realities instead of chasing their dreams, which he says are subsets of our realities. Basically, if you thought he was »

"Reality Matters": Christopher Nolan Talks The Ending Of 'Inception'

1 June 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Nobody will be able to look past what you’ve said,” Jonathan Nolan advised his brother Christopher Nolan about what really happens at the end of "Inception." The spinning top smash cut that concluded the blockbuster movie is one of the more bravura moves in a summer movie in quite some time, and while the director isn't revealing anything else about the fate of Cobb, he has recently talked about the movie and used it as a metaphor for graduates at Princeton.

7 films that turn classic genres completely on their heads

28 May 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When it comes to genre films, we often know what to expect. When you sit down for a blockbuster action film you're probably after some elaborate fight scenes, extended car chases and giant explosions.

But sometimes we fancy something a bit out of the ordinary, a movie that takes your expectations and turns them completely on their head. With the arrival of Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service in Sky Store, we look at some of the best genre films to think outside the box:

Kingsman: The Secret Service (spy movie)

Vaughn's Kingsman takes a leaf out of the James Bond book of spy movies, but mixes it up with a contemporary twist, imaginative action and a heavy dose of comedy.

Taron Egerton's troubled inner city kid Eggsy is far from your typical hero, and Colin Firth blew our mind in some of the most insane action sequences we've ever seen. »

9 Movies You Forgot Were Scored by Hans Zimmer

25 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

If you were to stop someone on the street and ask them to name any film composer, their answer would likely be John Williams or Hans Zimmer. Indeed, with 169 credits to his name, Zimmer is one of the most prolific film composers of our time, and also one of the most memorable. From the “Brahhhmmmm” of Inception to the emotional swells of The Thin Red Line, Zimmer’s work has transcended the cinema time and time again to become part of the pop culture lexicon. But one of the qualities of Zimmer’s work that doesn’t seem to get enough credit is his versatility. He is equally at home in the world of a giant, heady sci-fi film as he is in a Nancy Meyers romantic comedy. This versatility has served him well—almost too well. With so many credits to his name and a chameleon-like ability to mask his signature, »
