Frank Yablans, Former Paramount President, Dead At 79

13 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Frank Yablans was president of Paramount during some of the studio’s most golden years from 1971 to 1975. Working under notorious owner Charlie Bludhorn, Yablans’ tenure included such Oscar winners and nominees as The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, Serpico, Paper Moon, Chinatown and Murder On The Orient Express. He died peacefully in his sleep of natural causes this morning, his son, ICM PartnersEddy Yablans, told Deadline.

Frank Yablans worked in his early years for Warner Bros, The Walt Disney Company and Filmways and joined Paramount in the late 60s where he spearheaded marketing for Arthur Hiller’s Ryan O’Neal/Ali MacGraw tearjerker Love Story before ascending to the presidency. After leaving Paramount, he went on to a successful career as a producer/exec producer on such films as Richard Pryor/Gene Wilder comedy Silver Streak and Brian De Palma’s The Fury.

Patti Smith’s Passions Have Led Her Into Oscar Season

26 November 2014 5:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patti Smith has always been a renaissance woman. She’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her work as a singer-songwriter and frontwoman of the Patti Smith Group; named a commander of the French Ordre des Artes et des Lettres for work as a poet; and awarded the National Book Award for her 2010 memoir, “Just Kids.” And 2014 may have been the year Patti Smith finally went Hollywood.

In her own small, measured way, that is. This past year saw the 67-year-old songstress contribute a tune to Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah,” which is up for consideration in the Oscar original song category, as well as act in Netflix’s “The Killing.” Last year, she wrote and performed an original song for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”

“It’s entirely a happy convergence,” she insists.

She’s certainly earned the cultural capital to experiment with new roles, »

Watch: Darren Aronofsky's 'Dog Vs. Monkey' Wrestling Video

24 November 2014 2:28 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Once upon a time, Darren Aronofsky traveled to India. While he was there, he encountered a dog and a monkey playfully wrestling in the street and did what many of us would—he got out his camera. What happened next? He put it on YouTube where no one really saw it, but now they certainly will. Chatting with Vulture, the director, who was recently honored by the Humane Society for not using real animals in "Noah," revealed the story of his wildlife special (of sorts). "I posted only one video in my life on YouTube," he explained. "When I was in India, I saw a dog and a monkey wrestling. I thought it was cool, just amazing. I had never seen a dog and a monkey wrestle, and they were playing, it was totally fun. What happens is the monkey suddenly flies back and bumps into my camera, hits my camera, »

See Darren Aronofsky’s Lost Animal Masterpiece

24 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Darren Aronofsky was honored by the Humane Society of the United States Friday night, in part because of his commitment to using only CGI animals in Noah. But Aronofsky tells Vulture that he did make one little movie featuring live beasts — and frankly, he's a little surprised so few of us have seen it."I posted only one video in my life on YouTube," Aronofsky told us at the gala. "When I was in India, I saw a dog and a monkey wrestling. I thought it was cool, just amazing. I had never seen a dog and a monkey wrestle, and they were playing, it was totally fun. What happens is the monkey suddenly flies back and bumps into my camera, hits my camera, right into the lens, then sort of reached around and felt the camera, then got back into the fight," he said.

Interview: Patti Smith Doesn't Want Her Own Biopic!

20 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What becomes a legend most? Not the biopics we see each year at the movies, Patti Smith suggests to me. We were meeting to talk about her first Original Song for a film, "Mercy Is" from this spring's $100 million hit Noah when the conversation veered into her own status as a showbiz legend, the godmother of punk. She shudders when I wonder aloud if anyone will make ever make a movie of her best-selling memoir "Just Kids" which recounts her storied relationship with fellow artist Robert Mapplethorpe. Though she's undoubtedly been interviewed thousands of times by now in her forty years of stardom, and she questions (indirectly) the whole point of the star profile and the interviewing process  -- 'if you really want to know me, it's all there in the work' -- she is a patient and warm interview. She instantly recalls the old massive paraphenalia that journalists used »

Tech Support: Will 'Interstellar's' woes cost it Oscar attention in the sound mixing race?

20 November 2014 1:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Normally, by mid-November, we have a pretty good idea of many of the likely nominees in most of the crafts categories. But in this year's race for Best Sound Mixing, I see things as extremely open — there's not a single film that strikes me as assured of a spot and more than a dozen appear to have very good chances. That makes for an exciting race. This category awards the overall mix of dialogue, music, effects and "everything else" into a film's soundtrack. This is different than sound editing, which recognizes the creation and editing of artificial sound effects. Being a leading Best Picture contender can certainly help a film's chances in mixing (seen in "The Social Network," "The King's Speech" and "Moneyball" in recent years), as can being a war film, a musical or a respected (or even not-so-respected) blockbuster. There are also certain mixers who score very regularly indeed. »

Steve McQueen to direct Widows

20 November 2014 11:02 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

New Regency is reuniting with the director of its Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave on the heist thriller as the studio continues to assemble its stable of prestige filmmakers.

Iain Canning and Emile Sherman of See-Saw Films are producing Widows, based on Lynda La Plante’s 1980s TV series that aired on Thames Television about the wives of four armed robbers who come together to finish a robbery after their spouses are killed.

McQueen will also write and produce the feature, scheduled to start pre-production by the end of the year.

New Regency, led by Brad Weston, is riding high on awards buzz for its current releases Birdman from Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu and Gone Girl by David Fincher, which Fox Searchlight and Fox are distributing, respectively.

Iñárritu is currently in production for New Regency on The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, a 2016 Oscar hopeful set to open through Fox on December 25, 2015.

The Walking Dead, Ep. 5.06, “Consumed” a welcome return to the show’s most compelling characters

17 November 2014 2:11 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 6: “Consumed”

Directed by Seith Mann

Written by Matthew Negrete & Corey Reed

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on AMC

“Consumed” follows Carol and Daryl in pursuit of the mysterious vehicle that belongs to Beth’s kidnappers. The dynamic duo make good progress into the city eventually arriving at a safe house while running into the occasional zombie along the way. The hour proves harmless enough for the pair of seasoned veterans, and while at times exciting, “Consumed” is a predictable, voyage into the heart of Atlanta. But despite a lack of suspense and horror, “Consumed” is a welcome return to two of the show’s most compelling characters; and an episode that gives two of our least talkative survivors a chance to express themselves and some much-needed breathing room to examine how much they’ve both changed in five seasons.

Despite Daryl’s presence, the »

Hear Billy Boyd perform 'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies' credits song

17 November 2014 9:51 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Teased in Warner Bros. Pictures’ "For Your Consideration" and later confirmed by all involved, Watertower Muisc has released actor-musician Billy Boyd’s "The Last Goodbye" in full. Running behind "The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies’" credits, the track is one of the few components of Peter Jackson’s trilogy-capper that could take Oscar gold.  Written and composed by Boyd (Howard Shore, who played Pippin in Jackson’s "Lord of the Rings" films, "The Last Goodbye" fits with "The Hobbit" series’ musical trend of folksy male vocalists (with Neil Finn’s "Song of the Lonely Mountain" and Ed Sheeran’s "I See Fire") versus the ethereal ballads that Enya, Emilíana Torrini, and Annie Lennox leant to "Lord of the Rings." Neither Finn nor Sheeran’s songs cracked the Original Song races in the past two years, giving "The Last Goodbye" an uphill battle when it comes to Oscars. “We focused »

22 movie characters who should be couples

16 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

At the European press conference for Interstellar earlier this month, Sir Michael Caine named 'Sandy Bullock in Gravity' as his favourite sci-fi character. This connected Matthew McConaughey's Cooper with Bullock's Ryan Stone in our minds and got us thinking… Wouldn't they make a great couple (if they could get the space suits off long enough to snog)?

So join us as we go further down this rabbit hole, and pitch more movie characters who should probably swipe right on Tinder and get into each other's pants the first opportunity they get.

1. Cooper (Interstellar) & Ryan Stone (Gravity)

Why They're A Good Match: They're both space-exploring adventurers who've beaten some pretty big odds in their time. They've both had the opportunity to gaze in wonderment at the stars – now let's set them up on a date so they can remember that we're all made of stars and they should be gawking at each other instead. »

Learn how production design made 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' a lead 'character'

14 November 2014 12:28 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Among all working directors, few can rival Wes Anderson's reputation for set design. From the eccentric home of "The Royal Tenenbaums" to the maritime world of "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" to the subtle 1960s environment of "Moonrise Kingdom," he works with his production designers to create memorable color palettes and designs that are of the utmost importance in telling the story. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" probably tops all of his films to date in this regard. It’s fair to say that Adam Stockhausen created a "title character" through his design of the eponymous lodge. HitFix recently spoke to the production designer, fresh off his first Oscar nomination for "12 Years a Slave" and currently in Germany filming Steven Spielberg’s latest, about his role in creating that character. Stockhausen’s journey to Anderson is very much aligned with his journey to cinema, totally unexpected but finding him »

‘Foxcatcher’, ‘Rosewater’ & ‘Homesman’, Oh My! — Specialty Box Office Preview

13 November 2014 9:04 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

This weekend’s onslaught of smaller new films will have awards contenders and big names to jostle with at the box office. Awards hopefuls Foxcatcher and The Homesman begin their theatrical runs in limited New York and L.A. rollouts, with the former a likely winner in the first weekend when the numbers come in Sunday. The films from Sony Pictures Classics and Roadside Attractions, respectively, tell particularly American stories, though from very different eras. The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart took time off in 2013 to work on his directorial debut. Open Road’s Rosewater, starring Gael García Bernal, will begin its theatrical rollout this weekend. It will be the biggest opener of this weekend’s cadre of specialty newcomers, playing in several hundred locations in the U.S. and Canada. Actor Chris Lowell also makes his filmmaking launch with Beside Still Waters. The project had smooth sailing until it came time for distribution, »

Contest: Win Tickets For Museum Of The Moving Image Screening Of 'Noah' With Darren Aronofsky & Patti Smith

13 November 2014 8:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This spring, the oceans rose in theaters nationwide in one of the Bible's most famous stories, with Darren Aronofsky bringing "Noah" to life. An ambitious and boundary-pushing take on the familiar tale, the movie was another memorable effort from the filmmaker, that certainly gains power from being seen on as big a screen as possible. And next week in New York City you'll get another chance, and we've got tickets to an event that's now sold out. On Monday, November 17th at 7 Pm, the Museum Of The Moving Image will present "Noah," followed by a conversation between Aronofsky and the legendary Patti Smith, the latter also performing the song she wrote for the film, "Mercy Is" a capella. It doesn't get much better than that. This will be a rare chance to see the movie with this kind of talent on hand, and it's one you won't want to miss. »

Darren Aronofsky Salutes His ‘Noah’ Production Artisans

12 November 2014 12:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Most awards buzz centers on fourth-quarter films, but many earlier 2014 works deserve to be remembered. For example, “Noah.” Paramount debuted the film back in March, but long after the release, filmmaker Darren Aronofsky was enthused about talking with his collaborators on the film, which scored an impressive $362 million globally.

Cinematography, Matthew Libatique

We wanted to reinvent the biblical epic. The edict was no robes, no long beards, no sandals, no Middle East deserts. The Noah story is prehistorical. Everything was new, everything was a miracle — like the first rainbow. So we wanted to create a universe unto itself. We did a lot of research, but much of the look and lighting was dictated by Iceland. We chose Iceland because it’s the newest piece of earth on the planet. We wanted to go to the true primordial place on the map. The lighting there is unique and Matty had huge challenges, »

'Exodus': How Ridley Scott Chose His 11-Year-Old Voice of God

12 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Nov. 21 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. As Paramount found this year with Darren Aronofsky's Noah, films about biblical subjects can expose a studio to unwanted controversy. That's especially true for stories about Moses, a figure of significance to Jews, Christians and Muslims. Now it's Fox's turn to grapple with sensitive depictions as Exodus: Gods and Kings opens Dec. 12.

Visual effects gurus behind “Noah” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” are teaming up to launch a new company, Vitality Visual Effects.
