First Reaction To Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings

17 October 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I always find it a bit strange when studios pre-screen random clips from upcoming movies, but with the racially insensitive hubbub currently surrounding Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings, any talk about the actual movie could do absolutely no harm. There’s the age old saying that “there is no such thing as bad publicity,” and the worst case scenario after screening some clips only involves a few negative articles running on random entertainment sites – at least people might forget about the race card, right?

I attended the last New York City pre-screening of the Exodus: Gods And Kings footage preview, expecting nothing more than a slew of clips in the vein of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Everyone knows the story of Moses, Rhamses, and the ten plagues, and everyone knows actors like Sigourney Weaver and Christian Bale, so what could go wrong when there’s a budget worth millions and millions of dollars? »

Logan Lerman recalls going through the grinder of grueling 'Fury' shoot

17 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

David Ayer's "Fury" rumbles into theaters today. We've talked to Ayer, we've talked to composer Steven Price and now, one of the stand-outs from the cast, Logan Lerman. Lerman has been carving an interesting path for himself ever since he started in this business as a young boy. He debuted alongside Mel Gibson in 2000's "The Patriot," though most probably sat up and took notice in TV's "Jack & Bobby" or James Mangold's "3:10 to Yuma" remake. He's dabbled in franchise ("Percy Jackson") and sparked on the indie scene ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower"). This year he's in a pair of epic productions from Ayer and Darren Aronofsky ("Noah"). In "Fury," his character is very much the eyes through which the audience experiences the world of the film and he's a great anchor throughout. In "Noah," meanwhile, he's paired with Russell Crowe again after working with him in »

Exodus: Gods and Kings Preview: Can Ridley Scott Make a Contemporary Biblical Epic?

17 October 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We at Lr had a chance to check out about 40 minutes of director Ridley Scott’s new historical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings last night. Here’s what we thought.

The series of clips shown went from massive battles to small, intimate character moments that really tried to give you a sense of the grand scale the film is trying to work on as well as the personal story it’s trying to tell beneath it. Bible stories seem to be the new avenue for filmmakers to go down these days, and though Darren Aronofsky’s Noah left a little to be desired it looks like Ridley Scott is embracing his usual overblown sword and sandals method to tell this timeless biblical tale of Moses and Ramses.

The first clip began with both Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton) preparing to go off to war. We’ll get to »

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic ‘Selma’ Confirms Release Date

15 October 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

Selma, the story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic struggle to secure voting rights for African-Americans, has confirmed a 6th February release date for 2015. Next year also marks the historic 50th anniversary of this pivotal moment in the Us Civil Rights Movement.

With a great cast that includes the ever-impressive Brit actor David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King Jr., the film tracks a dangerous and terrifying three month campaign led by Martin Luther King Jr. which culminated in the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. The campaign galvanized American public opinion and persuaded President Johnson to introduce the Voting Rights Act, protecting Africa-Americans’ right to vote.

Directed by the Middle Of Nowhere’s Ava DuVernay, the film co-stars Tom Wilkinson as President Lyndon B. Johnson; Carmen Ejogo as Coretta King; Tim Roth as Governor George Wallace; and Oprah Winfrey as Annie Lee Cooper.

Original Song Winners at the Oscars Vary in Genre

15 October 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The best original song category at the Oscars is a difficult category to find patterns in. The number of best original song nominees can vary each year, and since 2000, the genre of the winning song has ranged from rap to show tunes.

The official Oscar rules state that the top five songs will receive nominations, but if there are 25 or fewer qualified works submitted, nominations may be limited to three, and if there are nine or fewer, than no awards may be given that year.

When it comes down to picking nominees, the Music Branch Executive Committee picks the top choices for the music categories (including original score and original musical). The winner is chosen by all Academy members.

This year’s best original score nominees could range from lullabies (“Mercy Is” from Noah) to addictive dance tracks (“Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie »

Oscars News: Can Paramount bring 'Noah' back to life with Oscar voters?

14 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Kris Tapley asks if Paramount will be able to bring spring release "Noah" starring Russell Crowe back into the Oscar discussion. They are especially hoping to rekindle voter support for the below-the-line technical categories of the Darren Aronofsky film. Composer Clint Mansell and songwriter Patti Smith have been making the circuits along with cinematographer Matthew Libatique and sound mixers Craig Henighan and Skip Lievsay. The studio has had a recent miss with "Men Women and Children" but also has "Interstellar," "Selma," "The Gambler," and "Top Five" in the mix. HitFix -Break- Join the lively film and TV discussions going on right now in the Gold Derby message boards Sasha Stone discusses why the Oscar race discussions are continually "dominated by men."

Off the Carpet: Can Paramount rekindle Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' for Oscar voters?

13 October 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's always difficult to bring a spring release back around for the Oscar season, no matter the film's size or impact. But in a year like 2014 — which seems rather atypical as subversive comedy, American auteurs and blockbuster craftsmen all duke it out for room alongside the traditional, baitier offerings — anything can slip on through. That's what Paramount is surely hoping for with Darren Aronofsky's "Noah." The studio has its hands full at the moment, though. Dealing with an embarrassing release for Jason Reitman's "Men, Women & Children," working hard to benefit a new relationship with a powerful, talented director in Christopher Nolan (whose "Interstellar" releases right in the middle of the awards circuit), prepping the release of newly acquired "Top Five" from Chris Rock, setting strategy for Rupert Wyatt's "The Gambler" and Ava DuVernay's "Selma" — it's easy to see why working on campaigns for early-year releases might not be a high priority. »

Clint Mansell on 'Noah's' connections to 'The Fountain' and working with Aronofsky

10 October 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clint Mansell is a long ways away from his days as frontman of alt. rock band Pop Will Eat Itself. Since his first stab at it on Darren Aronofsky's "Pi," he has forged a singular career as a film composer, working on productions as varied as "Knockaround Guys," "Sahara," Moon" and "Stoker." But it seems whenever he comes back to the table with Aronofsky, that's when something magical happens. Mansell has worked with Aronofsky on each of the director's features — "Pi," "Requiem for a Dream," "The Fountain," "The Wrestler," "Black Swan" and now "Noah" — and you can tell talking to Mansell that the creative rapport they've managed to sustain is rare. Mansell is pretty straight-forward about what he wants out of this gig, and Aronofsky has always come across the same way. So it certainly makes sense that they would keep coming back to the well.

Tech Support: Visual effects Oscar race features apes, raccoons and 'Interstellar'

9 October 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Best Visual Effects is often the place where the Academy recognizes what it is frequently accused of avoiding elsewhere: mainstream spectacle. Blockbusters reign in this category, at least at the nomination stage, with fantasy films, franchises and other money-makers always featuring prominently. The branch also has its specific fetishes, at least historically (talking animals immediately jumps to mind), though, in recent years, it has seemingly been all 3D, all the time. There are dozens if not hundreds of individuals who work on a film’s visual effects but the nomination can ultimately be shared by only four of them – usually the special effects supervisor and three visual effects supervisors.  While some names are "favorites" of the branch (John Frazier, Joe Letteri), this branch is hardly the most insular and tends to be more concerned about the work on display. We will receive a hint of the way they are »

Patti Smith talks 'Noah' original song 'Mercy Is' and still feeling intimidated

9 October 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Patti Smith loves movies. A few days before we chatted about her Best Original Song contender "Mercy Is" from Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," Smith and her friend Ralph Fiennes took in two screenings at the currently running New York Film Festival: Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner" followed by Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice." The double feature was "quite a juxtaposition," she says with a laugh (Smith enjoyed both films). And it's her taste for movie-going that landed her a job writing the haunting melody that underscores Aronofsky's film. The two first met when they bumped into each other at the Venice Film Festival, catching one another at films and chatting between screenings. Three years later, their off-the-cuff conversation is now an Oscar-eligible single. "Mercy Is" is not the first of Smith's songs to feature in a Hollywood picture, but it is her first original writing for screen. Below, she »

Patti Smith on Her Musical Roots and First Shot at an Oscar With ‘Noah’ Song

8 October 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scot Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

On Tuesday, I met up in New York with Patti Smith, the iconic singer-songwriter-activist, for a long conversation about her life, career and latest work. Smith, who is 67 and a year away from the 40th anniversary of her debut album Horses, is still going strong — writing, performing and speaking out about social issues that are important to her. She is also, for the first time in her career, in contention for a best original song Oscar nomination.

Many of the songs for which Smith has been known and loved for generations — including “Because the Night,” “The People Have the Power” and “Gloria” — have been sampled in movies over the years. But those songs were already in circulation when they showed up on film soundtracks. This year, for the first time, Smith wrote a song specifically for a movie: “Mercy Is,” a haunting lullaby that »

'Guardians,' 'Gone Girl,' 'Interstellar' scores get a jump on awards season

8 October 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Somehow over the years the Hollywood Music in Media Awards have escaped me. The event's fifth annual slate of nominees were announced today, and it's a pretty standard assortment of names we've been considering at the forefront of this year's Best Original Score Oscar race, from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to Hans Zimmer to the ubiquitous Alexandre Desplat. The nominees were chosen by an "Hmma advisory board and selection committee," and winners will be voted upon by "music-media industry professionals comprised of select members of the Society of Composers and Lyricists, The Television Academy, the AMPAS Music Branch, Naras, performing rights organizations, film music journalists and music executives," according to the press release. You might raise your eyebrow at something like "Interstellar" being on here when it hasn't been screened for these purposes (or much at all, for that matter). The nominations are also based on hearing music via »

BAFTA Britannia Awards Show Just Got a Lot Better

6 October 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

For the second time, Brit comedian Rob Brydon ("The Trip to Italy") will host. BBC America will broadcast the event for the third year on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 9pm Et.  BAFTA La Chairman Nigel Daly said of Louis-Dreyfus: “Her ability to create iconic, enduring characters like Selina Meyer, Christine Campbell, Elaine Benes, and her most recent role as Eva in 'Enough Said,' is such that it is impossible to imagine the last 20 years of comedy without her."   Louis-Dreyfus is guaranteed to be hugely entertaining. Also on stage this year will be would-be Oscar contenders, per usual, "The Judge" star Robert Downey Jr. (the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film) and "Mr. Turner" writer-director Mike Leigh (the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing). Other honorees are "Noah" star Emma Watson (British Artist of the Year); "Begin Again" and "The Normal Heart" star »
