Mel Gibson Wishes He Would Have Said Yes To Dustin Hoffman’s Role In ‘Rain Man’

Welcome to #FlashbackFriday, where we look at past moments with filmmakers, actors, etc. and highlight something in cinema history that’s fascinating, amusing, or perhaps something you never knew or have seen – you name it.

For this week’s #FlashbackFriday, we are going back almost 20 years to revisit a Mel Gibson interview with Charlie Rose. Back then was a different time for Gibson. He was arguably at the height of his career, coming off the Oscar wins for “Braveheart” and landing major role after major role.

CineEurope: Fox Revs Up 'Alita,' 'Bohemian Rhapsody' in Likely Last Show Before Sale

With Fox likely heading to CineEurope for the last time before its impending sale, much was made of the studio's long legacy in its presentation Tuesday.

At the event — which closed proceedings on the second day of the Barcelona trade show — the opening video served up hat tips to some of Fox's most notable films, including Cleopatra, Alien, The Full Monty, Speed, Fight Club, Braveheart, Die Hard, Home Alone, Black Swan and, of course, Avatar.

There were also references to its pending sale, with a video of international theatrical distribution president Andrew Cripps and international marketing president Kieran Breen packing for their trip to CineEurope, showing ...

‘She Rises’ Review

Stars: Michael Biehn, Angus Macfadyen, Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Daisy McCrackin, Lorraine Ziff, Nick W. Nicholson, Larry Wade Carrell, Hallie Jordan | Written by Angus Macfadyen, Lony Ruhmann | Directed by Larry Wade Carrell

Being a huge fan of the horror genre means that I have watched many strange movies. From a killer car tyre to a zombie musical to killer sushi – I could go on and on. And She Rises, in different ways, is right up there with the strangest.

The story itself sounds simple enough, as a director and her lead actor end up staying in a cabin in the woods for a night, owned by a seemingly shy but normal woman and her not so normal Father. But that is as simple as things get. Soon their female host becomes a lot less innocent and sweet as she first seemed, while her Father might just be ready to kill someone.

How Did Tommy Flanagan Get All The Scars on His Face?

One of our first memories of watching Tommy Flanagan was in 1995’s Braveheart. He had his scars then, and we’d have to admit that if he didn’t, his character probably wouldn’t have been as effective. Still, from there on, we recognized Flanagan with his scars as part of his entire look, and we absolutely dig it. The rest of Hollywood does as well because his body of work is proof that you don’t have to have the most flawless face to be successful in Hollywood. As a matter of fact, Flanagan’s appeal goes way beyond that. In one of his

Mel Gibson Attached to Direct World War II Drama ‘Destroyer’

Mel Gibson Attached to Direct World War II Drama ‘Destroyer’
Mel Gibson will direct World War II drama “Destroyer” in his first helming gig since receiving an Oscar nomination for “Hacksaw Ridge.”

Destroyer” is being produced at Gianni Nunnari’s Hollywood Gang Productions. It’s based on the John Wukovits book “Hell From the Heavens: The Epic Story of the USS Laffey and World War II’s Greatest Kamikaze Attack.”

Rosalind Ross wrote the script, which centers on the Battle of Okinawa in April, 1945, when the ship withstood multiple kamikaze attacks and earned the nickname “The Ship That Would Not Die.” Wukovitz used personal interviews with survivors, the memoirs of crew members, and the sailors’ wartime correspondence to construct the story.

“Hacksaw Ridge” also portrayed the events surrounding the Battle of Okinawa, centering on the role of medic Desmond Doss in rescuing dozens of Allied soldiers. Gibson received his third Oscar nomination for his work as director. He won Oscars

Cannes Lineup Predictions: Will Women Directors Gain Ground?

Cannes Lineup Predictions: Will Women Directors Gain Ground?
Cannes kicks off nine days earlier this year, on May 8, but the official lineup announcement remains under wraps until April 12, which means the guessing games are already underway. Jake Gyllenhaal (“The Sisters Brothers”), Riley Keough (with three films in the mix), and Juliette Binoche are all expected to walk the red carpet, while directors Alfonso Cuarón (“Roma”), David Robert Mitchell (“Under the Silver Lake”), and Harmony Korine (“The Beach Bum”) are well positioned to screen in competition for the first time.

Half a century after the historic 1968 edition when Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, and a generation of politically engaged French youth brought Cannes to a halt amid nationwide demonstrations, Europe’s most glamorous film festival once again finds itself at a crossroads. From the international success of “Wonder Woman,” which debuted five days after the festival last year, to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, the world is a much different

Black Panther and Captain America Reunite in Latest Look at Infinity War

A new Infinity War photo has surfaced online. Marvel is getting dangerously close to unleashing Avengers 3 on the world, as the studio recently bumped up the release date by a week. That means we're getting this behemoth in less than two months, on April 27. That also means Marvel is about to start marketing like crazy. Today, we bring you a newly revealed image, which unites Steve Rogers, Bucky and Black Widow with Black Panther in his homeland of Wakanda.

This latest peek teases one of the massive battles set to take place in Avengers: Infinity War, as seen in the first trailer. We get a new look at Captain America with his facial hair, Black Widow with her blonde locks and Bucky with his fancy bionic arm made of Vibranium. Based on what we saw in Black Panther, we're guessing that arm comes with some pretty sweet Wakandan tech built in.

Oscars: How ‘The Shape of Water’ Rallied a Consensus

Oscars: How ‘The Shape of Water’ Rallied a Consensus
As the 90th annual Academy Awards drew to a close Sunday night, Warren Beatty intoned the (correct) words that answered the season’s biggest mystery: “The Shape of Water.”

Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy-romance picture, subtitled “A Fairytale for Troubled Times” in early drafts, was in many ways the catch-all for a year brimming with films that spoke to the moment. “Darkest Hour” and leadership, “Dunkirk” and defiance,” “Get Out” and insidious racism, “Phantom Thread” and toxic masculinity, “The Post” and press freedom, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and reconciliation — so many of the best picture nominees this year had the zeitgeist in their sights in varying ways.

But “The Shape of Water” carried its message with subtlety and nuance in an entertaining genre package. That graceful and accessible touch goes a long way when you’re aiming to appeal to some 7,200 voters. Del Toro’s movie, as he’s said,

Oscar Best Picture winners in order: ‘The Shape of Water’ joins these 89 esteemed films

Oscar Best Picture winners in order: ‘The Shape of Water’ joins these 89 esteemed films
On Oscar’s 90th birthday, “The Shape of Water” was declared the winner of Best Picture in a move that most awards pundits didn’t see coming. Of the 89 former Best Picture winners, Guillermo del Toro‘s fairy tale for troubled times is now only the second fantasy film to claim the honor after “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” While that 2003 epic had dragons and hobbits, “The Shape of Water” tells the story of a mute woman (Sally Hawkins) who falls in love with a sea creature. “Shape” also won Best Director, Best Score and Best Production Design.

All the history-making fun facts ‘The Shape of Water’ set with its Best Picture Oscar win
“If you are a nominee tonight who isn’t making history, shame on you,” Jimmy Kimmel chided in his Oscars monologue Sunday. “The Shape of Water” doesn’t need to saunter off with its head down because the Best Picture champ made a whole lot of history by taking the top prize, one of four awards it won.

Here’s a list of all the droughts that were ended, records that were set and stats that were killed (say it with me: no SAG ensemble nomination!) by “The Shape of Water” with its Best Picture victory.

See How I knew ‘The Shape of Water’ would beat ‘Three Billboards’ for Best Picture

– First film since “Braveheart” (1995) and second overall to win without a SAG ensemble nomination

– First film since “Braveheart” to win without acting, writing or editing wins

– First film with a female lead to win since “Million Dollar Baby” (2004)

‘The Shape of Water’ was the 1st December release to win Best Picture Oscar since ‘Million Dollar Baby’ (2004)

‘The Shape of Water’ was the 1st December release to win Best Picture Oscar since ‘Million Dollar Baby’ (2004)
The Shape of Water” was an unconventional Oscars choice for Best Picture in many ways: the amphibian romance, the fantasy elements, the female-centered story. And it was the first film since “Braveheart” (1995) to win without a corresponding SAG Award nomination for its ensemble. So it might have gotten lost in the shuffle that the film bucked another significant trend: it opened on December 1, which makes it the first December release to win Best Picture since “Million Dollar Baby” (2004).

The conventional wisdom is that it’s advantageous to release films late in the year to make a strong last impression on Oscar voters, and that still tends to be true. It’s relatively rare to see top Best Picture contenders released before September. But there’s a limit to how late an impression you want to make. Starting with the 2004 ceremony honoring the best films of 2003, the Oscars telecast moved up
