‘Blade Runner 2049’ sound mixers Doug Hemphill, Ron Bartlett: ‘Blade Runner was in our DNA’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“‘Blade Runner’ was in our DNA,” reveals sound mixer Doug Hemphill about his work on “Blade Runner 2049.” Hemphill and his colleague Ron Bartlett previously collaborated with Ridley Scott on the 2007 final-cut version of the 1982 sci-fi classic, re-mixing the film with all the new bells and whistles available to them. When they lent their talents to Denis Villeneuve‘s 2017 followup they reaped an Oscar nomination for Best Sound Mixing. Watch our exclusive video interview with Hemphill and Bartlett above.

See Will ‘Blade Runner 2049’ get Oscar revenge for unforgivable snubs of Ridley Scott’s original classic?

Their experience working on the original years after its release helped inform their work on the sequel. “It was great hearing [Scott’s] ideas,” Bartlett explains, “taking those thematic elements and moving it into this one.” This was especially true when it came to Vangelis‘s iconic score, which “2049” composers Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch paid

Matt Damon was just 18 when he made his movie debut with a small role in 1988’s “Mystic Pizza,” which was also the second feature of Julia Roberts.

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar
Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club.

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically

Exclusive: Jason Patric Talks The Prince and More
He can be self-destructive, darkly debonair or a lot more dangerous, but Jason Patric is best known for bringing a smoldering intensity to his roles, be it in it something like “The Lost Boys,” “Geronimo: An American Legend,” ”Rush,” “Sleepers” or “Narc,” Joe Carnahan’s 2002 film that reminded people of his talent after a self-imposed four-year hiatus.

Matt Damon: 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the 'Elysium' Star

Matt Damon is probably one of the most normal people in Hollywood. There are never any salacious tabloid stories about him, he married a former bartender, and he walks his daughters to school just like other, non-famous dads.

But, just because his life isn't scandalous, doesn't mean the 42-year-old is boring. To prove it to you, here are 15 things you probably didn't know about the "Elysium" star.

1. We all know that Damon and Ben Affleck are best friends. But, did you know that the Bostonians are also distant cousins? Tenth cousins, once removed, to be exact.

2. Before Damon and his bestie/cousin hit it big with their screenplay "Good Will Hunting," the pair were so broke that they shared a joint bank account.

3. At 16 years old, Damon decided he was going to leave Boston for New York City to chase his dream of becoming an actor. His well-educated parents did

'Ain't Got You' – Bruce Springsteen

In 1987, when Bruce Springsteen wrote the song "Ain't Got You", he was the biggest rock star in the world. He had vast estates in New Jersey and Beverly Hills, and he had not long returned from a honeymoon at Gianni Versace's villa in Lake Como. "Ain't Got You" was Springsteen's attempt to make a self-aware nod to his outrageous fortune, the Rembrandts on his walls, and how he had come a long way from his working-class upbringing.

Before he released it, Springsteen played

Notebook Reviews: Walter Hill's "Bullet to the Head" & Álex de la Iglesia's "As Luck Would Have It"

  • MUBI
As narrative, Bullet to the Head is amateurish. Villains awkwardly explain their plans for the benefit of the audience. Characterization is non-existent. Scenes are bridged by lame iMovie-style filter effects. Poorly Photoshopped stills are used to illustrate "backstory." The movie clunks along with no sense of dramatic tension or scope.

And yet in terms of how it handles light, movement, texture, and space, it's clearly the work of a master. Directing his first feature since Undisputed (2002), Walter Hill invests the film with all the hallmarks of his abstracted macho style: blunt comic-strip compositions; telephoto lenses that turn foreground objects into translucent smears on the frame; figures lit chiaroscuro against backdrops of neon; reflections rippling on water. Bullet in the Head may have a shaky sense of structure and plot, but it has a firm grip on action movie form.

Powers Gets the Final Piece to the Casting Puzzle

We have been reporting quite a bit of very recent casting news about the comic-to-tv-pilot adaptation of Powers, a police procedural set in a world with superpowers. It now looks like the final piece of the puzzle has fallen into place, as they have awarded the role of Christian to the very excellent Jason Patric. Here is the FX press release, which includes a nice bit of info about the show as well as about Mr. Patric:

Film and stage star Jason Patric has signed on to star as “Christian Walker” in the FX drama series pilot Powers, based on the award-winning comic and graphic novel series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.

“We’ve been asked repeatedly why it has taken so long to bring our series adaptation of Powers to fruition. It is for the same reason we cast Jason Patric in this role; we are aiming for something extraordinary,

I first moved from Los Angeles to Winner, South Dakota, just off the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation, in 1993. On one fine day, my Lakota husband and I were denied service in a local café, where it was known in that one-stoplight town that they “didn’t serve Indians.” I was seven months pregnant and hungry for a steak, and didn’t want to take “no” for an answer.

Walter Hill 101: Get To Know Sylvester Stallone's 'Headshot' Director

Walter Hill 101: Get To Know Sylvester Stallone's 'Headshot' Director
by Chris Arrant

After two missed shots, Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill will finally set their sights together on "Headshot."

Ain’t It Cool News received a direct message from Stallone that he's officially secured Hill to direct his upcoming film "Headshot." The cop and hitman team-up pic is a long time coming for this pair of filmmakers: Stallone said that he was close to working with Hill on two of the director’s previous films, 1982’s “48 Hrs.” and 1978’s “The Driver.” Although he might not be a widely-known name for modern moviegoers, Hill’s work in the '70s and '80s made him one of the most respected directors of action films and the late-20th Century revival of the Western. He's worked with some of Hollywood’s greatest action stars -- McQueen, Bronson, Schwarzenegger, Willis, Rourke, Snipes -- with Stallone being one of the few exceptions.

Interview: Matt Damon, At 40, An Unconventional Movie Star

Last week, I had the opportunity to spend about 15 minutes at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel with Matt Damon, who is not only one of the biggest movie stars of his generation but also a genuine actor’s actor who not infrequently takes on smaller parts in outstanding films. The latest and greatest example of this is his role as the verbose, cocksure Texas Ranger Mr. Laboeuf in the Coen brothers’ newly-released Western “True Grit” (Paramount, 12/22, PG-13, trailer), for which he is now in the running for a best supporting actor Oscar nod.

Over the course of our conversation, Damon and I discussed:

his early childhood moviegoing experiences/favorites his first foray into acting in high school (where a teacher inspired him to use school plays as an outlet for his creative urges) and later professionally (he, at 16, and his “best friend” Ben Affleck, at 14, joined the union and began
