‘Tootsie’: A Fun-Time Musical for Turbulent Times

‘Tootsie’: A Fun-Time Musical for Turbulent Times
4 out of 5 stars

Let’s hear it for Tootsie, the laugh-out-loud funniest musical of the Broadway season. Yes, it’s another tune-filled spin on a hit movie — Pretty Woman, King Kong, the list goes on. But this one is actually good — hell, better than good, it’s musical-comedy heaven. Using the beloved 1982 movie with Dustin Hoffman as a launching pad, the singing-dancing Tootsie still features an unemployed asshole of an actor who has to dress up as a woman to land a part. But the film’s casual sexism (it

New RZA, Ghostface Killah Tracks Highlight Slasher Film ‘Thriller’ Soundtrack
Wu-Tang Clan members RZA, Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna appear on the new soundtrack to slasher film Thriller. The album also includes RZA’s original score for the Dallas Jackson-directed project, which the rapper-producer also acted in and executive-produced.

RZA spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the movie, detailing how he juggled those various roles. “Dallas Jackson is actually a buddy of mine,” he says. “I met him some years ago, at [Quentin] Tarantino’s house. We became friends. We actually worked on a project together, a rewrite of Ghost Dog, and we became good friends.

Cannes: Thierry Fremaux Talks Netflix, Representation and Getting Tarantino in Time

Cannes: Thierry Fremaux Talks Netflix, Representation and Getting Tarantino in Time
Cannes topper Thierry Fremaux on Thursday unveiled his festival's 71st official selection, which will see a number of fest favorites returning to the Croisette including Pedro Almodovar with Pain and Glory, Bong Joon-ho with Parasite, Terrence Malick with A Hidden Life and Xavier Dolan with Matthais & Maxime.

The festival will open with a suitably splashy premiere — Jim Jarmusch's zombie comedy The Dead Don't Die, bringing stars Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Iggy Pop and Selena Gomez to the red carpet. The Elton John biopic Rocketman will also bring the superstar himself to the Croisette.

But some big titles that had been ...

Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2019 Include ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ and Isabelle Huppert

Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2019 Include ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ and Isabelle Huppert
As usual, the Cannes Film Festival’s official selection is a mix of brainy competition auteurs, star power, and the lucky handful of players who might — if everything plays out as hoped — return to North America as Oscar contenders. You know that while “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is conspicuously missing in action from Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux’s official selection announcement, he wants nothing more (especially with a lineup short on red-carpet players) than to have Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and the festival’s favorite filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino, walk upstairs to the Grand Palais.

But for studio executives, whose priority is covering their bottom-line bets, the risks of going to Cannes often outweigh the gains.

Cannes Lineup Deep Dive: “Romantic & Political” Lineup Mixes Veterans And First-Timers

Cannes Lineup Deep Dive: “Romantic & Political” Lineup Mixes Veterans And First-Timers
Unveiling what he categorized a “romantic and political” Official Selection this morning, Cannes Film Festival chief Thierry Frémaux offered up a roster of titles from veterans of the Riviera as well as first-timers, and a handful of so-called graduates from parallel sections to the main Competition.

Overall, there’s been mostly positive reaction to the selection revealed Wednesday that brings back such noted filmmakers as Terrence Malick, Ken Loach, the Dardenne brothers and Pedro Almodovar. As for the lesser-known names, hopes are high new discoveries will be made. One of the most notable takeaways from today’s lineup is the improved, if not yet equal, number of films directed by women. The festival has consistently come under fire for under-representation and last year pledged to do better.

As expected, feature films from the streamers are sitting this one out, something that Cannes addressed this morning, and while Hollywood glamour is slightly light,

Heavyweight Cannes Lineup Ties Record for Female Directors in Competition

Heavyweight Cannes Lineup Ties Record for Female Directors in Competition
Eleven months after signing a pledge to help increase the number of films by female directors at international festivals, the Cannes Film Festival has unveiled a lineup that features four films directed by women in the main competition, tying but not breaking the record set in 2011.

The four are Mati Diop’s “Atlantique,” Jessica Hausner’s “Little Joe,” Celine Schiamma’s “Portrait of a Young Lady on Fire” and Justine Triet’s “Sibyl.” An additional nine female directors are included in other sections of the festival.

Cannes Lineup Announcement: How to Watch
The 72nd Cannes Film Festival is announcing the films chosen for “official selection” — including those competing for the event’s coveted Palme d’Or prize — in a press conference Thursday starting at 11 a.m. in Paris.

The livestream of the press conference is available here. (Please note that the broadcast seldom starts on time.)

Last year, Cannes artistic director Thierry Frémaux surprised many by selecting fewer of the older, established auteurs than expected, in order to make room for rising talents, including a debut film from an emerging Egyptian director (“Yomeddine”); cutting-edge queer cinema (“Knife + Heart”); a batch of strong Asian entries; and three films made by women.

What will this year’s edition hold? This much we already know: The festival will open with Jim Jarmusch’s zombie satire “The Dead Don’t Die,” with Bill Murray, Chloe Sevigny, and Adam Driver, as Variety exclusively revealed. Elton John biopic

Wes Anderson Talks ‘The French Dispatch’ Plot, Says Film Could Be Released by End of Year

Wes Anderson Talks ‘The French Dispatch’ Plot, Says Film Could Be Released by End of Year
Wes Anderson has given his first interview about his new movie “The French Dispatch” to French publication Charente Libre (via The Playlist), revealing principal photography finished in mid-March. The film was shot on location in Angoulême, France, which Anderson returned to this month to film a dance scene involving local students over four days. The director provided some other small tidbits about the film, including that Bill Murray only has a tiny role (he only shot for one day) and Christoph Waltz being added to the cast to appear in just one scene. As for the rumor Brad Pitt might appear, Anderson said that’s not the case.

Up until now, all that has been known about “The French Dispatch” plot is that the film is a “love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris.” Anderson said the secrecy around the film has

“His Name Is Dalton” – ‘Road House’ At 30

YouTube/MGM

‘I thought you’d be bigger’ are five words frequently repeated throughout Rowdy Herrington’s cult action movie Road House, but its star, to which the sentence was directed, could not be any bigger at the time of the film’s release. Patrick Swayze was one of Hollywood’s hottest properties at the time, mostly thanks to his turn as the rebellious dance instructor Johnny Castle in teen-romance sleeper Dirty Dancing. A very different film, targeted at a very different audience with recurrent violence, frequent nudity and common expletives, Road House was very much going after the adult male, and succeeded with more than $30 million in the bank during its U.S. theatrical run – all from an estimated budget of $10-15 million.

“Pain don’t hurt.”

Road House rolled into production in the spring of 1988. By that point, Dirty Dancing had made well over $200 million around the world

Handcrafting from scratch by Anne-Katrin Titze

Cindy Hulej on Only Lovers Left Alive: "I relate a lot to that movie on multiple levels. And for Paterson I customised the guitar in that." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

While I was talking with Rick Kelly at his work bench in the back of the shop of Carmine Street Guitars, Ed Bahlman was having a lively conversation with Cindy Hulej on music. The Boys Next Door, The Birthday Party, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Blixa Bargeld, Rowland S Howard and Wim Wenders' Wings Of Desire were being discussed.

Cindy told me that she customised a guitar for Golshifteh Farahani to play in Jim Jarmusch's Paterson, which also starred Adam Driver. Driver is now in New York tearing up the stage opposite Keri Russell in the Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson's Burn This, directed by Michael Mayer, and he will soon be seen in Jarmusch's Cannes Film

First Ghostbusters 3 Teaser Poster Reminds Us Who to Call

First Ghostbusters 3 Teaser Poster Reminds Us Who to Call
Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters 3 is currently in the casting process and a new promo poster has been revealed. The poster uses the same image of the iconic Ecto-1 we previously saw, but it adds a pretty substantial change. Franchise fans aren't sure exactly what to think about the upcoming sequel, which is mainly due to the fact that we don't have a whole lot of information to go off at the moment. However, we do know the movie will center on a young teenage cast, leading to comparisons of 2016's all-female reboot.

The Ghostbusters 3 promo poster says, "Summer 2020. You Know Who to Call." We all know we're supposed to call the Ghostbusters in case of a supernatural emergency, but where are they now? Jason Reitman has stated the new movie takes place in the present day, which more than likely means our original heroes have probably retired from the bustin' business by now.

Back a few months ago, it was revealed that the duo of Bill Murray and filmmaker Sofia Coppola were going to reteam for a new film, the first in the partnerships between Apple and A24, titled “On the Rocks.” Since then, we haven’t really heard anything about the film, except for the fact that Coppola appeared in a teaser video unveiled during Apple’s recent press conference where the tech company announced it’s content-making plans.
