Christopher Nolan On Why He’s ‘A Pain in the Ass to Everybody’ On His Sets — Cannes 2018

Christopher Nolan On Why He’s ‘A Pain in the Ass to Everybody’ On His Sets — Cannes 2018
As Cannes director Thierry Fremaux sought to bolster his auteur lineup this year, he brought in Martin Scorsese to open the festival with his “The Aviator” star, Cannes jury president Cate Blanchett. The New York filmmaker also introduced his Film Foundation-restored 1946 Cannes Classics entry “Enamorada,” Emilio Fernández’s Mexican revolution romance starring icon María Félix, who became a favorite of Jean Renoir and Luis Buñuel. “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler showed his blockbuster at the Cannes outdoor cinema on the beach, and submitted to over 90 minutes of friendly grilling from American buddy Elvis Mitchell.

But the biggest crowd showed up for “Dunkirk” writer-director Christopher Nolan, who made his first foray to Cannes for a lengthy public conversation and a screening of “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

Nolan will introduce a Sunday 70mm Cannes showing of a new print of Stanley Kubrick’s movie with the director’s daughter Katharina, her uncle

Al Pacino movies: 25 greatest films ranked from worst to best, including ‘The Godfather,’ ‘Dog Day Afternoon,’ ‘Scent of a Woman’

Al Pacino movies: 25 greatest films ranked from worst to best, including ‘The Godfather,’ ‘Dog Day Afternoon,’ ‘Scent of a Woman’
This year Al Pacino may pick up his third career Emmy Award as Best Movie/Mini Actor for the HBO telefilm “Paterno.” He plays the title role of disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, whose successful 45-year career ended after his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was revealed to have been a child molester. Pacino previously won the same prize for “Angels in America” in 2004 and “You Don’t Know Jack” in 2010, and he was nominated once more for “Phil Spector” in 2013. But of course, most of Pacino’s career has been in film and not television. In honor of his latest small-screen achievement, let’s take a look back at some of his best big-screen performances. Tour through our photo gallery above of Pacino’s 25 greatest films above, ranked from worst to best.

Al Pacino Is Giving His Best Performances on the Small Screen, and He Has Been for Years

Al Pacino Is Giving His Best Performances on the Small Screen, and He Has Been for Years
A cinematic tragedy in three sentences:

Al Pacino hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar since 1993. Al Pacino hasn’t appeared in a “fresh” feature film that’s grossed more than $5 million in over 10 years. (“Ocean’s Thirteen”) Al Pacino hasn’t starred in a “fresh” feature film that’s grossed more than $5 million in over 15 years. (“Insomnia”)

But don’t worry. This tragedy has a happy twist: In that same time, the iconic star of stage and screen has been delivering impeccable performances filled with nuance and depth to the masses; performances, it could be argued, that are far more focused, affecting, and intricate than the bombastic turn in “Scent of Woman” that won him an Oscar.

Pacino has been absolutely killing it on television.

Yes, television. The medium once thought far inferior to its big screen brother has been embraced by one of its favored sons for decades.

‘The Irishman’: Al Pacino on Playing A 39-Year-Old Mobster

‘The Irishman’: Al Pacino on Playing A 39-Year-Old Mobster
The number most associated with Martin Scorsese’s upcoming Netflix epic “The Irishman” is its growing price (once $100 million, then $125 million, now $140 million). But Scorsese really wants the film to dazzle with the number 39. On The Ringer‘s Bill Simmons Podcast, 77-year-old Pacino — who plays long-missing ex-Teamsters union leader Jimmy Hoffa — explained that he’ll spend parts of the gangster epic playing a character that’s about half his actual age.

“I was playing Jimmy Hoffa at the age of 39, they’re doing that on a computer,” said Pacino, referencing the tech wizardry employed by Industrial Light & Magic. Pacino explained that computers mounted on the sides of cameras were programmed to capture the actors at various ages, making them appear physically transformed in every frame.

5 upcoming films from iconic directors that should be on your radar

Samuel Brace with five upcoming films from iconic directors that should be on your radar…

Film and filmmaking is more open to newcomers and young bucks than ever before. With the proliferation of equipment and technological advancement, nearly anyone who wants to make a film can do so. And thus fusing this with studios more often than not deciding to hire promising talent from the indie scene to direct their blockbusters, it can seem that director name recognition isn’t quite as central as it once was. However, there are still giants of the industry out there making movies, and their immense talent is still the best barometer we have for gauging a film’s potential success (at least as a piece of art). The good news is that five of cinema’s very best are set to release content in the near to very near future. And, I think you’ll agree,

Michael Mann’s 10 Favorite Films

Michael Mann began his career as a visual storyteller on television. He wrote episodes of Starsky and Hutch, directed the made for TV film The Jericho Mile, and served as executive producer on the groundbreaking and stylish hit Miami Vice. Since the 1980s, Mann has established himself as a highly-influential player in the cinematic canon with artful and tragedy-laden crime films such as Thief, Manhunter, and Heat. His films often include the interweaving and clashing of ideologies between two opposing, yet strikingly similar, characters, the presentation of architecture and cityscapes (typically Los Angeles) that personify the setting as both looming over, and removed from, the action, and devastating violence.

In BFI’s most recent Sight & Sound poll, Mann compiled a list of his 10 favorite films which includes a variety of American classics, game-changing silent masterpieces from the 1920s, and a surprising pair of films from 2009. The broken humanity at the

Jon Favreau Is Voicing an Important Alien in Solo

Jon Favreau Is Voicing an Important Alien in Solo
Jon Favreau took to social media to share a picture of himself with Ron Howard and Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Lawrence Kasdan, leading to a lot of questions as to why he was with them. Howard then retweeted the picture and answered why Favreau was hanging out. As it turns out, he wasn't just hanging out, he was providing the voice for a "very cool and important" alien character. Jon Favreau is currently directing Disney's Lion King remake and took some time off to record his dialogue for the Solo movie.

Ron Howard retweeted the picture of himself with Jon Favreau and Lawrence Kasdan to announce that Favreau is joining the Solo project to voice a mystery alien character. Howard promises that the character is an important one, but that's all we really know at this time. He had this to say.

George Lucas Was Developing a Han Solo Film Before Disney Bought Lucasfilm

Here's an interesting bit of Star Wars trivia that I didn't know until today! Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Lawrence Kasdan recently revealed in an interview with EW, that he was actually developing a standalone Han Solo film with George Lucas before Disney bought Lucasfilm.

If George Lucas wouldn't have sold Lucasfilm to Disney, there's a good chance that he was on the road to launching his own Star Wars expanded cinematic universe, which is pretty cool. According to the report:

Even before Lucasfilm was sold to Disney in 2012, launching a renaissance of galactic storytelling, Lawrence Kasdan had signed on to put together a Han Solo-centric movie.

After Disney bought Lucasfilm, they wanted Kasdan to help write the script for The Force Awakens. The studio then wanted to move forward with that Han Solo film he was working on with Lucas. When talking about coming on board the project,

The Kasdans Mined Inspiration From Heat, The Big Lebowski While Creating Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story has been described as many things by many people.

It’s an origin story, first and foremost, while Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy believes the forthcoming prequel contains all the hallmarks of a “gunslinger-type” movie. Ron Howard, on the other hand, has been quoted as saying that his version of Solo is more akin to an old-school Western with heist elements – fitting, really, given it centers on the galaxy’s most endearing smuggler.

And thanks to Entertainment Weekly’s ongoing coverage, we now know where screenwriters Lawrence and Jon Kasdan sourced their inspiration for the Han Solo spinoff. Of course, as a long-time veteran of the Star Wars saga, Lawrence Kasdan looked to the original trilogy while writing Solo, but it turns out Heat and The Big Lebowski (!) informed the story, too.

Off-Kilter Han Solo Story Was Inspired by Big Lebowski and Unforgiven

Off-Kilter Han Solo Story Was Inspired by Big Lebowski and Unforgiven
Solo: A Star Wars Story screenwriters Lawrence and Jon Kasdan recently talked about some of their influences while writing the movie, and the Coen Brothers' cult classic The Big Lebowski came up along with Michael Mann's Heat. In addition, the father and son screenwriting duo reveal that Solo will be the most "off-kilter" Star Wars movie released thus far, which has typically divided the fan base that was already divided about the movie in the first place. Humor was always going to be a factor in a movie about a young Han Solo and hints of The Big Lebowski are pretty intriguing, at least light years more intriguing than Ace Ventura.

In a new interview, Lawrence and Jon Kasdan talked about the influences that they had in mind for Solo when they were writing it and they came from some unlikely sources. In addition to The Big Lebowski, the

Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Unlikely Influences Include The Big Lebowski

Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writers Lawrence and Jon Kasdan have revealed some of the spinoff’s unlikely influences, including cult classic The Big Lebowski and Michael Mann’s Heat. The spinoff is shaping up to be something different for the franchise, so it isn’t surprising the creative team looked past the classic Flash Gordon serials that informed George Lucas on A New Hope. Instead of a space opera with a struggle of good against evil, Solo is pitched as a crime film in the faraway galaxy, delving into the underworld like never before.

The year Heat was criminally overlooked by the Oscars

Tom Jolliffe looks back at the Oscars in 1996, when Heat was criminally overlooked by the Academy…

The year was 1996, which looked back over the films of the previous year. It was a fairly strong year, and like a lot of the nomination lists throughout that decade there are some oddities. There are also glaring omissions. When I look back at a great year of films, my three favourites from 1995 would have to be Se7en, The Usual Suspects and Heat. Not one of these was nominated for best picture.

Two still got some recognition from the board. The Usual Suspects was nominated for two awards and won both, for Kevin Spacey (Best supporting actor) and Christopher McQuarrie (Best Original Screenplay). Se7en was nominated for best editing. Heat on the other hand was completely ignored. Not even a token nod for best catering or something. In a film about cops and robbers,

Reed Morano (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) poised to become first woman to win Emmy and DGA for drama directing

Reed Morano (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) poised to become first woman to win Emmy and DGA for drama directing
“The Handmaid’s Tale” director Reed Morano is on track to make history: The cinematographer-turned-helmer could become the first woman to win both the Emmy and Directors Guild Award for directing a drama series.

Morano, who became the third woman to win the drama directing Emmy in September after Karen Arthur (“Cagney & Lacey”) and Mimi Leder (“ER”), has 2/7 odds to claim the DGA on Saturday, according to our latest predictions. Morano is up for her work on the “Handmaid’s Tale” pilot, for which she also won the Emmy.

See 2018 DGA nominations: ‘Game of Thrones’ leads with 3, ‘Master of None’ has 2

Morano would be the fourth woman to win the drama DGA, joining Barbara Kopple (1997’s “The Documentary” from “Homicide: Life on the Street”), two-time champ Lesli Linka Glatter (2009’s “Guy Walks into an Advertising Agency” from “Mad Men,” 2014’s “From A to B and Back Again” from “Homeland
