Whether you like it or not, we’re now halfway through this series of Doctor Who, and it’s time for the stakes to get higher; we now know who’s in the vault (or at least, who the Doctor thinks is in the vault), there’s a massive alien invasion waiting to strike, and oh yeah, the Doctor’s still blind. While you bite your nails waiting for next week’s instalment, here are our viewing notes with all the vaguely interesting things we noticed about this week’s episode.

Annapurna has forged a two-year film production deal with Pastel, the Oscar-winning company behind “Moonlight.” As part of the pact, Annapurna will get the rights to a feature film from Barry Jenkins, the director behind the coming-of-age Oscar best picture winner. That movie is already in development.

Jenkins is writing a script, which will serve as the first project under the deal. Details are being kept under wraps. The pact will also include future films from Pastel partners Adele Romanski, Sara Murphy, and Mark Ceryak.

The Cannes Film Festival Buyers Guide: Who’s Buying the Movies You’ll Watch

15 May 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Buyers return to Cannes like swallows to the Capistranos, but this year they’ll find a hostile landscape. Too many buyers, too few titles, and streaming-service disruptors are driving up prices all the while, making North American prebuys increasingly necessary.

That’s hazardous terrain: Witness the Weinstein Company’s $6 million bid for transgender drama “3 Generations” (aka “After Ray”). Two years later, after a title change and poor reviews on and off the festival circuit, the drama starring Elle Fanning and Susan Sarandon finally received a May 5 release. Total domestic gross to date: $46,421.

That was in 2015, the last year that TWC held its then-annual dog-and-pony show for buyers and press at the Majestic Hotel. This year, like the last, they’ll hold court on their yacht, which also serves as their offices — still tony, but on a budget; it’s a lot less expensive than that prime Croissette real estate. Meanwhile, »

Great Job, Internet!: This look at film shots could affect the way you watch movies

15 May 2017 11:18 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The YouTube channel CineFix bills itself as “the ultimate destination for true movie buffs & filmmakers.” It also serves as a kind of mini-film class for regular movie fans who may want to know more about what they’re watching. CineFix has already released a video on the five most popular shots in moviedom, and has just submitted its follow-up, the “Best Shots Of All Time - Part 2.”

The next five shots are ones that you’ll recognize, even if you don’t automatically know their names, like the “over-the-shoulder shot,” in which the camera is positioned behind someone who’s looking at someone else, or what CineFix dubs the “dual layer” shot, basically the “over-the-shoulder” with the closer person turned around. The video also uses less-textbook-familiar movies to depict these examples, like a two-person shot featuring Joaquin Phoenix in The Master or a claustrophobic dual-layer shot in Ingmar Bergman ...

Radiohead Frontman Thom Yorke Will Score Suspiria Remake Soundtrack

11 May 2017 4:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Thom Yorke will compose the score for upcoming remake of Dario Argento's 1977 cult favorite Suspiria. Italian director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, I Am Love) will direct the new version of the horror classic. These are going to be some mighty big shoes to fill for Yorke and Guadagnino as the score and lighting, respectively are arguably two of the most iconic features of the original Suspiria. Guadagnino has teased that he will be taking a different approach to the coloring, making it "cold, evil, and really dark." So what is Yorke's score going to sound like?

Yorke is best known for his work as the lead singer/multi-instrumentalist from Radiohead, in addition to his solo work and Atoms for Peace. He will be scoring the remake on his own. Though only speculation, the sounds of Yorke's Prophet 08 synthesizer will fit the bill perfectly. But Yorke is »

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke pops his musical score cherry to compose on the remake of Suspiria

11 May 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The reimagining of Dario Argento’s cult horror classic Suspiria, which is to be helmed by Luca Guadagnino, has found its musical muse to work on the score for the film: Radiohead’s very own Thom Yorke.

Yorke is best known as the singer and main songwriter for Radiohead, is diving in on what will be a first in his career. His fellow bandmate Jonny Greenwood has scored films such as There Will be Blood and The Master, and Suspiria will mark a new stage in Yorke’s musical career.

The remake is set in 1977 Berlin and follows a young American woman (Dakota Johnson) who joins a prestigious dance company. She arrives just as one of the members mysteriously disappears and begins to suspect that the dance troupe is harbouring a disturbing secret. Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and Jessica Harper also star.

Sleepless review

5 May 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A French thriller gets the remake treatment, starring Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan. Here's our review of the rather silly Sleepless...

Constructing a decent thriller's like building a house of cards: get it right, and you have something that stands by itself. Make a mistake, and the whole thing collapses in a heap. Sleepless, a remake of a French thriller, Sleepless Night, in turn adapted from a novel by Frederic Jardin, is one of those frustrating genre films that, after half-an-hour or so of decent construction, starts to wobble before your very eyes.

The set-up is this: Jamie Foxx plays a Las Vegas cop, Vincent Downs, who's robbed a huge stash of cocaine as part of an undercover investigation into his own precinct. Determined to get their drugs back, some ruthless gangsters stab Vincent in the gut and kidnap his son as leverage. Meanwhile, Internal Affairs officer Jennifer Bryant (Michelle Monaghan »

There’s a new big dog in the distribution game, and it’s Annapurna. Megan Ellison was already greeted as a sort of savior of movies when her company financed “The Master,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Foxcatcher” and “20th Century Women” – films that might otherwise have failed to get made. But now the cinephile heiress has moved into distribution as well.

The actor’s been a familiar face for a while — first popping up in “Night At The Museum” over 10 years ago — and turned heads with small roles in films like “The Master,” “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” and “Short Term 12” about five years back, but he became an unexpected star with the success of USA’s drama “Mr.

Celebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersCelebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersAdriana Floridia4/20/2017 9:40:00 Am

Today is National Look-Alike day, and so naturally we're here to take a look at some startlingly similar actors and actresses in film.

Have you ever watched a movie thinking it was one actor on screen, only to realize later that it was actually someone who just looked a lot like them? We've been there, and we'll admit that we've mixed up these actors before. Who hasn't thought that Frodo was Harry, and Harry was Frodo? We've also confused Gandalf and Dumbledore, but we're trying to put that one behind us. 

The following actors could quite possibly be related, if we looked at their ancestral charts. If that's not the case then we can't explain the phenomenon of their nearly identical likenesses. We wish we had a celebrity twin.

Water and Enlightenment in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘The Master’

14 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

An exclusive video essay.

In Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, Freddie Quell undertakes a spiritual journey that instead of a straight line takes a crooked kind of circle for its path, coming back to where and who he began. But along the way Quell with the aid of Lancaster Dodd and The Cause experiences several pivotal moments that either push him towards or pull him away from spiritual betterment, each of which the director has paired with water-based symbolism. In the following video essay I seek to explain these symbols as they pertain to the evolution — and devolution — of Freddie’s soul.

Amy Adams to Receive American Cinematheque Award

12 April 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Amy Adams in “Nocturnal Animals

Amy Adams has been named as the 2017 recipient of the American Cinematheque Award, a press release has announced. The honor recognizes “an extraordinary artist in the entertainment industry who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion pictures.” The five-time Oscar nominee will be presented with the award at the Cinematheque’s annual benefit gala. Scheduled for November 10 in Beverly Hills, the event will include tributes from colleagues and friends of Adams.

“The American Cinematheque is extremely pleased to honor Amy Adams as the 31st recipient of the American Cinematheque award at our celebration this year,” said Rick Nicita, American Cinematheque Chairman. “Adams is one of the most beloved, admired, and respected actresses in movies today. Her credits range from critical favorites like ‘American Hustle’ and ‘Arrival’ to blockbusters like ‘Enchanted’ and ‘Man of Steel,’ combining strong reviews and commercial success.” He continued, “Her appeal crosses all demographic groups and she continues to broaden her audience with performances that illuminate her movie-star qualities.”

Arrival” was indeed a critical favorite, but the 2016 sci-fi pic also made a serious dent at the box office. The story of a renowned linguist (Adams) assigned the high-stakes mission of communicating with alien visitors grossed nearly $200 million worldwide on a budget of $47 million.

Including Adams, there have been 31 recipients of the American Cinematheque Award, and just six of them have been women. The previous female honorees are Bette Midler, Jodie Foster, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, and Reese Witherspoon.

Adams received Oscar nominations for her performances in “American Hustle,” “The Master,” “The Fighter,” “Doubt,” and “Junebug.” She is currently in production on “Sharp Objects,” Marti Noxon’s adaptation of “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn’s 2006 novel of the same name. Adams will star in and executive produce the HBO series, which is centered on a Chicago-based reporter who was recently treated at a psych hospital for self-harm. She reluctantly returns to her tiny hometown, Wind Gap, Missouri, to cover the murder of two preteen girls.
