Ascap Workshop Spotlights Future Film Composers

24 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Are these the faces of the future of film scoring?

Earlier this month, 12 young composers each got the chance to stand on the 20th Century Fox scoring stage, conducting a 65-piece orchestra playing their own music. It was the culmination of their participation in the Ascap Film Scoring Workshop, a four-week immersion into the high-pressure, high-profile world of movie music.

As participant John Carey put it: “It was like getting to jump ahead 20 or 30 years in your career for a night, to a mock scenario where you would be scoring a major blockbuster film. Imagine being a quarterback in high school and suddenly getting to be in the NFL for a day; it’s just surreal.

“And after stepping off the podium my first thought was, ‘I have to figure out how to come back here and do this again.’”

Carey was one of four Americans chosen from among 300 applicants for this year’s program. »

From Snapchat Movies to Web Series: The ‘Sickhouse’ Team Plans ’60 Second Docs’

28 July 2016 8:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first feature-length movie released on Snapchat was just the tip of the iceberg for Indigenous Media, which is following up “Sickhouse” — which it produced on the social media platform — by turning to documentaries. The aptly named “60 Second Docs” is a new web series profiling eccentric real-life characters in just one minute. Its tagline: “Life. One minute at a time.”

The first installment, which premiered on June 1, is available on Facebook, YouTube and VidMe. The latest episode was released today. Already, the series has gained significant momentum, with over two million views to date.

Win A Prizepack And Free Passes To The Advance Screening of Me Before You In St. Louis

24 May 2016 12:58 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Live Boldly.

“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible,” says Will Traynor in Me Before You. His advice is directed at his effervescent yet seemingly settling caregiver Louisa “Lou” Clark, 26, who claims to be happy in the quaint English town in which they both grew up. But Will, only 31 himself, knows whereof he speaks…perhaps better than most.

“At its most basic, this is a story about the power of love and how it transforms you,” says director Thea Sharrock. “These are two characters who, but for their very different and difficult circumstances, should never have met…but here they are. And that’s where the fairytale begins.”

Based on the critically acclaimed, bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes, New Line Cinema’s and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ Me Before You stars Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”) and Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games »

‘Last Days in the Desert’ Review: Ewan McGregor Plays Jesus and Satan in Too-Polite Bible Tale

12 May 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

According to the New Testament, Jesus was led into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan for 40 days. During that time of fasting and prayer, Jesus sought the presence of God and sparred with the Prince of Darkness as preparation for ministry and an eventual sacrificial mission. Details related to this story, though significant — Jesus rebukes the Devil and makes it through, unscathed — are also fairly sparse. It’s that empty, speculative space that entices writer-director Rodrigo Garcia (“Nine Lives,” “Albert Nobbs’) to invent a new obstacle for Jesus (Ewan McGregor, called “Yeshua” here) in “Last Days in »

Just By Looking At It: Garcia’s Hollowed Jesus Flick

At one time an adept purveyor of what could loosely be termed the modernized ‘women’s picture’ with expert titles like Things You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her (2000), Nine Lives (2005) and Mother and Child (2009), director Rodrigo Garcia has gone off into more provocative territory following the stilted bauble, Albert Nobbs (2011).

Watch: Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin Fall in Love in ‘Me Before You’ Trailer

28 March 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The new trailer for the tear-jerking romance drama “Me Before You” previews an obstacle-ridden romance between the wealthy, recently paralyzed William Traynor and his small-town caretaker Louisa Clark.

The video clip begins with an introduction from “Me Before You” stars, “Game of Thrones'” Emilia Clarke and “Hunger Games'” Sam Claflin.

Based on a romance novel by Jojo Moyes, “Me Before You” follows the evolution of the English countryside-set love story between William and Louisa. Though the pair’s relationship is rocky at the onset, their mutual dislike gradually develops into affection. Once in love the couple faces challenges, partially spurring from William’s belief that his paralysis is holding Louisa back.

“I don’t want you to miss out on the things that someone else can give you,” he admits to Louisa in the trailer.

On Sunday, movie fans will find out if Eddie Redmayne wins Best Actor for his performance as trans woman Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. Should Redmayne be victorious, he'd not only score back-to-back Oscars but he would also become the latest in a long line of actors who have courted Oscar attention by playing the opposite sex, playing a trans person or in some other way playing a character whose gender differs than the one of which the actors themselves identify. Not that it comes without some criticism, of course. Also up for an Oscar this year is the »

15 Actors You Won't Believe Have Never Won an Oscar

20 February 2016 9:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year around Oscar time it seems like we always end up falling into the same debate: Who deserves to win best (Insert Category) here. There are many actors, directors, writers and others who have been nominated but have never taken home the gold statuette. Now, the reality is that films take a long time for directors to get made and writers take a long time to get a script right. But actors have a better set of odds, because they can make multiple films in any given year.

This isn't to say that acting is easier than any of the aforementioned jobs. It just means that, if the Academy likes an actor, and they make a lot of films, their chances to gain Oscar gold are that much better. A great case in point is how many times they has been nominated? 19. How many Oscars has she taken home? »
