‘La La Land’ Refurbished the Classic Musical Format for a Modern Audience

16 February 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

La La Land” is deceptively innovative. It evokes classic musicals while pushing the genre forward; it’s old-fashioned and modern at the same time.

Damien Chazelle makes his bold intent clear from the outset: Drivers stuck on a jam-packed freeway ramp exit their cars to sing and dance in a dazzling pyrotechnic display. When the music stops, they get into their cars and the movie’s star-crossed lovers-to-be lock eyes for the first time. They don’t swoon; Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) flips the bird at distracted Mia (Emma Stone) before speeding away.

The traffic and her Prius are thoroughly modern; so, too, his reaction. The fact that she’s clearly an actress preparing for an audition suggests we could soon be heading into familiar territory, however.

Sure enough, visual allusions to classic musicals soon pop up on-screen. Mia and her actress wannabes sport candy-colored dresses similar to the ones Catherine Deneuve »

Berlinale: Neil Triffett’s ‘Emo the Musical’ in Tune With Today’s Tempo

12 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tolerance, tormented teens and a timely tempo…. There could scarcely be a better launch pad than this week’s Berlin Film Festival for “Emo the Musical.”

The debut feature of Australian director Neil Triffett played this week in the Generation section of the festival.

The story involves a sullen high-school student who falls in love with a blindly optimistic Christian girl, who is part of a band. Their romance sets up a quirky culture clash between the conventionally conservative and those who don’t accept the need to be upbeat and happy all the time.

Triffett, who has a large body of short film works since graduating in 2010, developed the feature from his previous short film of the same title which won a special mention when it screened in Berlin in 2014.

“I didn’t know that the Emo concept had legs, but after the short played Berlin and Edinburgh, the »

Exclusive: Ruby Rose Wants to Be the Cate Blanchett of Action Movies

10 February 2017 10:16 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It only takes a minute of talking to Ruby Rose to realize she's different. Rose, one of the breakout stars of Orange Is the New Black, slinks down the red carpet at a recent premiere in an equally slinky gold slip. "It's a little bit more refined, one would say. And a little bit less comfortable," she acknowledges with a laugh. When asked who she is wearing -- as one is wont to do on a red carpet -- Rose falters. "Oh god..." She looks off-camera to her nearby publicist. "Who am I wearing?" Rose not-so-sheepishly grins as she turns back to the interview. "I'm terrible."

It's not just her failure to rattle off canned answers to typical red carpet questions, but the look itself: the Julien MacDonald gown adds a high fem flair to the 30-year-old actress' tableau of tattoos and contrasts with her edgy, metalic lip. "I want to do suits and I want to »

The Rangers have been assembled and the supporting players cast, which means but one thing: it’s almost morphin’ time. With little over a month to go before Lionsgate’s live-action Power Rangers movie lights up the big screen, Empire has premiered a brand new poster for Dean Israelite’s blockbuster, one designed to separate friend from foe.

Evoking memories of the film’s very first one-sheet – “together we are more” – below you’ll find all five Rangers striking battle poses under the looming shadow of Rita Repulsa, the all-powerful alien megavillain to be played by Elizabeth Banks. It heralds the actress’ return to franchise filmmaking following a brief spell in The Hunger Games, another of Lionsgate’s tentpole series, and we’re excited to see how Banks bends the character of Rita to her will. »

Will Musicals See a ‘La La Land’ Boost?

9 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The rap on musicals used to be “audiences don’t want to see people breaking into song.” Now that “La La Land” has charmed audiences by doing just that, what does it mean for the future of live-action screen musicals?

“Whatever musicals come next will have to be good. That’s the test,” says Justin Paul, one of the Oscar-nominated lyricists for “La La Land.” “I have to believe that other studios, other producers, would only be encouraged by the impact of ‘La La Land,’ both critically and at the box office.”

Adds fellow “La La Land” lyricist Benj Pasek: “We feel like our generation has been so primed for musical content. We grew up with the resurgence of Disney animation and all that followed from that. In hindsight, it makes sense that people would be receptive; so many of us grew up with our first stories being told through song. »

Pitch Perfect 3 Casts John Lithgow In Mystery Role

6 February 2017 7:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After collecting a Screen Actors Guild Award for his scenery-chewing performance as Winston Churchill in The CrownJohn Lithgow has enrolled for Universal’s Pitch Perfect 3.

Word comes by way of Variety, revealing that Lithgow now joins fellow newcomer Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black, xXx: Return of Xander Cage) for another helping of a capella-related hijinks. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Hailee Steinfeld and Brittany Snow are among the returning faces, and with production already underway, we fully expect Universal to lock down another casting announcement or two in the coming weeks. Speaking of which, there’s currently no mention of how Lithgow factors into Pitch Perfect 3, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on the threequel as the Barden Bellas prepare to stage their triumphant return.

At the helm for this one is franchise newcomer Trish Sie, who supplanted Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect 2 »

From her high-wire dive from the stadium ceiling to her pyrotechnic effects to her grand finale -- which saw her catching a football as she leaped off a set piece and into an unknown abyss -- everything the Joanne singer pulled off had the over-the-top spirit a halftime show demands.

Newswire: John Lithgow warms up for Pitch Perfect 3

3 February 2017 12:24 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

One of the weirdest things about the Pitch Perfect movies is how many characters are shown to be in their senior year in one film, who nonetheless return to perform in a college a cappella group a year later (and looking a year older). They can’t all be flunking like Brittany Snow’s character, can they? It’s rather una-ca-untable. Time stands still when you have great harmonies, we suppose. But even then, it’s not likely that John Lithgow, who’s just joined the cast of Pitch Perfect 3, will perform with the Bellas alongside Snow, Anna Kendrick, and Rebel Wilson. His role hasn’t been announced yet, but maybe it’ll be like The Intern, where a senior (citizen) is encouraged take part in youth culture, and teach an actress named Anna a thing or two. New director Trish Sie will just have to suss that »
