After Soderbergh: See the Top 10 Box Office Track Records of Classic Indie Filmmakers

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In a career that began with “sex lies and videotape” in 1989, “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s 26th theatrical release. It will extend his record as the top-grossing American director to come out of the independent scene in its formative years — a period we’ll define as 1975 (Joan Micklin Silver’s “Hester Street”) through 1992 (Quentin Tarantino’s debut, “Reservoir Dogs”).

To be clear, Soderbergh’s an outlier; his billion-dollar box office dwarfs every other indie filmmaker. However, looking at the performance of his contemporaries who got their start in that indie film movement, you may be surprised at who’s on the list. (Note: “Outside wide release” means less than 1,000 screens. Also, the list doesn’t include directors like Sam Raimi and Abel Ferrara, who have independent roots but were not discovered via the film festival/arthouse pathway, or Alan Rudolph, another significant ’80s figure; he started in horror films in the early ’70s. »

‘Whose Streets?’: For the Charlottesville Resistance, this Documentary is Essential Cinema

17 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As the nation reacts to the violence in Charlottesville, many are stunned by the hateful views that lurk beneath the country’s surface. One group that is unsurprised? Black people. African Americans have never forgotten America’s racist foundations, and never had the chance to turn a blind eye; they experience racism every day. Which why is a film like “Whose Streets?” — a documentary about the Ferguson protests, made by black filmmakers for black audiences — must be seen, celebrated, and heeded.

The film documents the genesis of the Black Lives Matter movement during 2013 demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo., following the murder of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson. Piecing together shaky footage with more intimate interviews with movement leaders, director Sabaah Folayan and producer Damon Davis weave a tale of unrelenting power that feels like today’s news. The film’s authenticity is largely derived from the filmmakers, »

Watch Late-Night Hosts Condemn Charlottesville Attacks, Trump's Lateness

15 August 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On Monday night after the weekend's violence by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va, late night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert condemned white power hatred and the President Trump's inappropriately meek response to it. 

"Although this isn't a political show, it's my responsibility to stand up against intolerance and extremism as a human being," said Fallon. "It's important for everyone, especially white people, in this country, to speak out against this," he added. "Ignoring it is just as bad as supporting it."

Late Night Hosts Get Serious Addressing Charlottesville Rally and President Trump's Response to Violence

14 August 2017 10:59 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After a weekend of violence and racially-motivated hatred in Charlottesville, Virginia, late night talk show hosts returned to TV with a notably somber tone and many spoke out against the white nationalist rally as well as President Donald Trump's tepid reaction to an attack that occurred during a counterprotest.

Jimmy Fallon, who has often refrains from taking strong political stances on The Tonight Show, opened up Monday's episode with an emotional address, getting choked up as he recounted the events that transpired over the weekend.

"Even though the Tonight Show isn't a political show, it's my responsibility to stand up against intolerance and extremism as a human being," Fallon shared. "What happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, was just disgusting."

"I was watching the news like everyone else, and you're seeing Nazi flags and torches and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach," he continued. "My daughters are in the next room playing »

‘Dunkirk’ and the 70mm Experience: Why The Unlikely Comeback of the Big-Screen Format Has Hollywood’s Attention

20 July 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been made about the way “Dunkirk” has been engineered for the 70mm experience. Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic is being marketed as an immersive big-screen experience, one that the director prefers audience experience in his preferred format. But he never would have been able to convince a studio to invest in this undertaking if weren’t for a few key developments from the past few years.

While shooting on film has made an unexpected comeback in Hollywood, watching a film projected on celluloid has remained a novelty reserved for cinephiles lucky enough to live near a museum or repertory theater still committed to showing film prints. After 35mm projectors were removed from theaters across the country, they never came back; Hollywood loved the ease of digital cinema projection (Dcp), which shaves off the costs of the significant labor, time and cost of making and shipping thousands of film prints. »

Why Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Murders Project Would Be a Radical Change of Pace

12 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s safe to say that Quentin Tarantino is not happy about Tuesday’s breaking news that his next almost-finished untitled script is based on the true history of the Charles Manson murders. That’s because the writer-director, who is one of Hollywood’s great true auteurs with a unique voice that is inimitable, likes to write his screenplays in private.

Tarantino is an artist, backed by patrons Bob and Harvey Weinstein, who has routinely turned down big-studio directing gigs in order to pursue his own muse. And he can be sensitive to the slings and arrows of public opinion. That’s because he wants to leave a meaningful cinematic legacy of just 10 films. So while he could always change his mind (as Steven Soderbergh did) about his career path, Tarantino does not take lightly his choice of what those last two films will be. (The last one might be “Kill Bill: Vol. 3, »

Quentin Tarantino Wants Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence For New Movie, And They Shouldn’t Resist

12 July 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Quentin Tarantino comes knocking, you answer the door. If that’s not an unspoken rule among Hollywood actors, then it very well should be. Tarantino has given movie history badass female protagonists like The Bride and Jackie Brown and wicked villains like Hans Landa and Calvin Candy. Even his cameos often pack more of a wallop than other director’s leading roles (see Michael Parks in “Kill Bill Vol. 2” and Jonah Hill in “Django Unchained”). All of this is to say the obvious: Tarantino creates unforgettable characters, and it wouldn’t be in your best interest to pass on it.

Tarantino is prepping his ninth feature, and if his earlier claim that he’ll retire after 10 films, this one will be his penultimate movie. Working once again with Bob and Harvey Weinstein, »

Quentin Tarantino’s next film could be about the Manson Murders

12 July 2017 4:24 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, some really interesting news began to spread throughout Hollywood. When it comes to some filmmakers, even the mere speculation that a new idea is percolating brings with it a rush of anticipation Apparently, the next movie project from Quentin Tarantino is closer than we think, and may actually be about Sharon Tate and the Charles Manson/Manson Family Murders. This would mark an original work by Tarantino, though one more clearly rooted in historical fact than any before. The true life tragedy, in which cult leader Manson ordered a number of his maniacal followers to attack the guests at a house in a swanky Los Angeles neighborhood, is terrifying. The insane followers brutally murdered everyone who was at the home, including actress Tate, who was eight months pregnant at the time and married to filmmaker Roman Polanski. Rumor has it that Tarantino has this planned for his next turn »

Update: Quentin Tarantino to write and direct movie based on the Charles Manson murders

12 July 2017 12:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If the latest rumors are true, it looks like director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) may be quietly starting work on a movie based on the Charles Manson murders. The film is said to be “a unique take on the Manson Family”.

According to THR, the director has been meeting with A-list actors, and is presently working on a script. Sources say that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence have allegedly been approached to be part of the film. Harvey and Bob Weinstein are said to be involved as producers on the film. There are no concrete story details right now, but part of the movie will reportedly be centered on the point of view of Sharon Tate, actress and wife to controversial director Roman Polanski. Manson’s followers broke into the Tate residence in the summer of 1969, murdering a pregnant Sharon Tate as well as four guests. »

Quentin Tarantino working on Charles Manson film

11 July 2017 1:23 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Feature number nine would bring filmmaker closer to ‘retirement’.

Quentin Tarantino is understood to be working on a screenplay about the Manson Family murders.

While details of the screenplay remain under the proverbial wraps, the project appears to be unusual in that it might be based on actual figures and events from recent history, breaking from Tarantino’s tradition of fictitious characters and storylines.

The sequence of Manson Family murders in the summer of 1969 remains one of the most disturbing episodes in recent Us history.

The killings were carried out at the behest of ex-con and cult leader Charles Manson by members of his ‘family’, a commune-like collective that set up camp in California in the late 1960s.

One night in August 1969 group members slaughtered five people at the Hollywood residence of filmmaker Roman Polanski, including his then pregnant wife Sharon Tate. Manson and ‘family’ members were found guilty in 1971 and the ringleader, now 82, remains »
