Dressing Up a Classic: All About the Beauty and the Beast Costumes

18 March 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Costume designer Jacqueline Durran (Anna Karenina) knew she didn’t need to reinvent the wheel when it came to designing costumes for Beauty and the Beast.

“Those costumes exist in people’s imaginations and all I wanted to do was to honor what they expect those costumes to be in a live action movie,” Durran tells People of reinterpreting the iconic looks from the animated film. The Oscar winner looked to the 1991 original as her starting point, and then to 18th century French fashion for further inspiration.

“We decided to take inspiration from there and enrich the world using historical details, »

3 March 2017 7:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ask a certain crowd of people what the defining MTV show of their childhood was, and it’s not Trl, or Real World or Jersey Shore. It’s Daria. Though Ms. Morgendorffer had been seen on Beavis and Butt-Head before, the March 3, 1997, premiere of Daria proved that the two shows couldn’t be more different. Let’s take a fond trip back to Lawndale for a closer look at the best animated misanthrope of the ‘90s.

Judge agreed to release the character, but that’s where his involvement with the show ended. »

New Teaser Trailer for Bong Joon-ho’s Okja Hints at the “Animal in All of Us”

28 February 2017 7:13 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"I took nature and science, and I synthesized." Since 2013's Snowpiercer, we've been eagerly awaiting Okja, the next film from Bong Joon-ho, and ahead of its premiere this June on Netflix, the first teaser trailer for the movie has been unveiled.

"From visionary Director Bong Joon Ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion."

Okja reteams Joon-ho with Snowpiercer co-star Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) and also features Jake Gyllenhaal (Life), Paul Dano (Swiss Army Man »

One of the jobs that the general public doesn’t pay that much attention to — but probably should — is that of the cinematographer. If you think a film looks gorgeous and you’re able to get swept away by what you’re seeing on the screen, that’s all thanks to this man or woman’s work behind the scenes. Turns out, though, you can even see these folks showcase their talent on social media.

Since the role of cinematographer is often referred to as the director of photography — shortened to Dp or Dop — it only makes sense that we hone in Instagram as that’s one popular online platform dedicated specifically to photos. Let’s take a look at 16 of the cinematographers who are utilizing Instagram to showcase more of their work and giving us a glimpse of »

The Weinstein Company has released the first photo of Benedict Cumberbatch as inventor Thomas Edison in the new film The Current War.

Theirs was a battle of intellect, a race of creativity and technological innovation that we see echoed in the self-made inventors dominating spaces like Silicon Valley. We're thrilled to start filming and to share this historical rivalry with audiences everywhere."

21 January 2017 5:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With filming on The Current War well underway in London, The Weinstein Company has released the first image from the highly-anticipated drama featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as legendary American inventor Thomas Edison.

Set in the late 1880s, The Current War details the rivalry between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse and the race to create a marketable and sustainable electricity system. Edison championed the use of a direct current for electric power distribution over an alternating current, which was backed by Westinghouse Electric and a host of European companies.

Edison and Westinghouse’s rivalry is the ultimate tale of competition driving ingenuity,” said Harvey Weinstein. “Theirs was a battle of intellect, a race of creativity and technological innovation that we see echoed in the self made inventors dominating spaces like Silicon Valley. We’re thrilled to start filming and to share this historical rivalry with audiences everywhere.”

Ben Kingsley and Josh Hartnett star in first trailer for The Ottoman Lieutenant

18 January 2017 12:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for The Ottoman Lieutenant, the latest film from director Joseph Ruben (The Stepfather, Sleeping with the Enemy), has been released (via Movieclips Trailers). The historical drama follows a woman torn between two lovers, played by Hera Hilmar (Anna Karenina), Josh Hartnett (Penny Dreadful) and Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), as they live within the Ottoman Empire in the time leading up to and during World War I; Ben Kingsley (The Jungle Book) also stars in the Jeff Stockwell-written film. Check out the trailer here…

The above trailer was first unveiled back in late 2016, but with its 2017 wide release approaching, Y Productions and Eastern Sunrise Films surely want to remind audiences members or make them aware of its existence.

Despite a decent cast, Ruben’s previous directorial effort, Penthouse North, failed to drum up enough interest to make any serious waves. Overall, it was a quiet return »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in January 2017, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” Season 1 (available January 13)

Why Should I Watch It? Netflix has sunk quite a sum into this ambitious adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” Quite unlike the film version starring Jim Carrey, Netflix’s serialized adaptation will incorporate Lemony Snicket as a character (just he was in the book). Patrick Warburton plays the titular author recounting the tale of three Baudelaire children who are taken under the wing of the evil Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) when their parents encounter an unforeseen tragedy. And from what we’ve seen, Snicket’s warnings of the story’s grim nature as well as his general incorporation only make the show itself more endearing. This is a children’s story too dark for some children and made with adult expectations in mind.

Best Episode? We’ve yet to screen all the episodes from Season 1, and the »
