A Tango and Cash Sequel? Seems Kind of Late

Joey Paur of GeekTyrant makes it pretty clear that Sylvester Stallone is fully on board with the idea of making another Tango and Cash movie, but it sounds as though Kurt Russell still isn’t convinced. In truth, neither am I. Like a lot of people I can claim to have loved Tango and Cash, it was one of the best buddy movies of the 80s and it was seriously amusing as well as action-packed. But bringing it back seems like it might be kind of a bad idea to be honest since as Kurt Russell has already said, the two

Sylvester Stallone Is Out of Control: Wants a Rambo Prequel

So is Sylvester Stallone terminally ill and not telling anyone? That might seem like a poor attempt at humor but it might explain why he’s going so nuts trying to remake and reboot some of his old movies at this point since not only has Rambo been going off but he’s adamant about starting up a series based on his movie Cobra, he wants to do another Tango and Cash, and now, according to Joey Paur of GeekTyrant, he wants to do a prequel to Rambo. For those that might be a bit salty about the ‘terminal illness’ crack let

‘Dancing with the Stars’ power rankings (week 1): At least one celeb was Way better than the judges gave them credit for

‘Dancing with the Stars’ power rankings (week 1): At least one celeb was Way better than the judges gave them credit for
After a year-long hiatus “Dancing with the Stars” is back with 12 new celebrities gracing the dance floor to win the next Mirror Ball Trophy. In typical “DWTS” fashion, this season already had its fair share of drama, from Sean Spicer’s controversial casting, to Christie Brinkley’s unexpected injury and withdrawal, to her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook filling in for her at the 11th hour. And in a “DWTS” first we learned the stars’ professional partners right before the couples took the stage to perform their first routine of the season — though those pairings had already leaked out ahead of time anyway.

Along with a new intro and set, we also saw the judges change their tune in terms of scoring. For the first time in several seasons, not one couple scored higher than a 7, and the 3 paddles made a couple of rare appearances.

How Bernardo Bertolucci’s X-Rated ‘Last Tango in Paris’ Became a Blockbuster

How Bernardo Bertolucci’s X-Rated ‘Last Tango in Paris’ Became a Blockbuster
Bernardo Bertolucci leaves a cinematic legacy of great films, including “The Conformist” and “The Last Emperor,” which won nine Oscars including Best Picture and Director. However, his biggest hit would be inconceivable today. “Last Tango in Paris,” the X-rated drama starring Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider, made more in its 1973 domestic release than the year’s James Bond entry, “Live and Let Die.” It was the year’s number 7 film, with an adjusted gross of $186 million — just a little below what Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” has amassed so far.

The mid-’70s were a high point for sophisticated, critic-influenced foreign films. Veteran directors like Bergman and Fellini remained significant players, while Francois Truffaut, Alain Resnais, and Claude Chabrol regularly found success. However, “Last Tango” was a sensation; even today, among foreign films it’s outstripped only by “La Dolce Vita” ($245 million) and “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” ($207 million

Bernardo Bertolucci, Oscar-Winning Director of ‘The Last Emperor,’ Dies at 77

Bernardo Bertolucci, Oscar-Winning Director of ‘The Last Emperor,’ Dies at 77
Bernardo Bertolucci, whose epic “The Last Emperor” won nine Oscars and who influenced generations of filmmakers with other groundbreaking works such as “The Conformist” and “Last Tango in Paris,” in which he explored politics and sexuality through personal storytelling and audacious camera work, has died. He was 77.

His publicist, Flavia Schiavi, said Bertolucci died at his home in Rome at 7 a.m. Monday. He had been suffering from cancer.

Italy’s greatest auteur of his generation, Bertolucci managed to work both in Europe and Hollywood, though his relationship with the studios had its ups and downs. But even when he operated within the studio system, Bertolucci always managed to make films that were considered projections of his inner world.

The Last Emperor,” an adaptation of the autobiography of China’s last imperial ruler, Pu Yi, swept the 1987 Oscars, winning every category in which it had been nominated, including best picture and best director.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ week 4 rankings from worst to best: Milo and Mary Lou shined, but Grocery Store Joe … just no

‘Dancing with the Stars’ week 4 rankings from worst to best: Milo and Mary Lou shined, but Grocery Store Joe … just no
This week on “Dancing with the Stars” each couple performed a trio routine with a “DWTS” alum or a special celebrity guest. A new Mirror Ball front-runner may have emerged, as Disney star Milo Manheim along with her pro partner Witney Carson and trio partner Riker Lynch brought down the house with an electrifying salsa. The routine was just one point shy of a perfect score.

But as one star rose another was shockingly snuffed out: R&B star Tinashe and her partner Brandon Armstrong were unfairly booted despite topping the leaderboard in the first two weeks of the competition. With her out of the running, which of the remaining celebs will rise to the occasion and pose a serious threat to win the season?

DeMarcus Ware’s ex-wife, family, and divorce: Everything you need to know

DeMarcus Ware may have won the Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos back in 2016, but during last night’s episode of Dancing With The Stars, Ware opened up about the family struggles he had previously gone through. The theme of the night was Most Memorable Year, and Ware decided to focus on the year where everything came together. He chose to focus on 2016 when he won the Super Bowl, but Ware noted that it meant so much more to have his children and his family there with him. He and Lindsay Arnold danced the Tango to Lux Aeterna by […]

Italy’s Centro Sperimentale Ramping up Film Restorations (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Italy’s Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia is ramping up production of restored Italian cinema gems with several high-profile titles set to screen at upcoming festivals including the Taviani Brothers’ “Good Morning Babilonia” which plays Thursday on Locarno’s Piazza Grande, presented by Paolo Taviani.

The fablelike “Babilonia,” which is about two immigrant stonemasons who work on the sets for D. W. Griffith’s ”Intolerance,” has been praised by Locarno artistic director Carlo Chatrian as “not just a homage to the great Italian tradition of art and craft workshops, but also an insightful interpretation of what cinema is about.”

The film’s restoration was supervised by its original cinematographer Beppe Lanci, as Csc chief Felice Laudadio points out.

Laudadio has been instrumental to the current push for more restorations being done by the Csc’s film archives. “The plan from now up to next May is for 12 films, which has never been done before,

Numb Trailer Has Hayden Christensen Preparing for the Apocalypse

Numb Trailer Has Hayden Christensen Preparing for the Apocalypse
The Cannes Film Festival is currently in full swing in the south of France, and one of the movies being sold to worldwide buyers at the fest is Numb, At the Edge of the End. Vmi Worldwide has debuted the first trailer for this indie thriller, as it seeks international buyers at Cannes. The film doesn't have a release date in place yet, and it doesn't seem that the film has a domestic distributor quite yet, but that may change at the festival.

The story follows Kurt Matheson (Hayden Christensen) a war veteran with Ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) who perceives that the end of the world is coming. After establishing a relationship with a dubious Messiah (Harvey Keitel), he leaves his normal life and begins the construction of a shelter underground, training himself in an extreme way, at the cost of losing everything. He soon makes people believe he is insane.

Busan: Wide House sells 'Hitler's Hollywood' doc to Sweden
Exclusive: Company also inks deals for I Am Not Your Negro and Renzo Piano.

Notable for being an exclusively European done deal at Busan’s Asian Film Market, French sales company Wide House has sold documentary Hitler’s Hollywood to Sweden (Njuta).

The company has also announced deals on Renzo Piano, An Architect For Santander and Toronto title I Am Not Your Negro.

Hitler’s Hollywood delves into the Third Reich’s heavily-censored German dream factory - complete with celebrity star system and the period’s latest marketing tools - producing Nazi hits such as Munchhausen at the request of Joseph Goebbels.

The film was previously pre-sold to the Us (Kino Lorber) and the UK (Eureka), and is aiming at January/February festivals.

Directed by Rudiger Suchsland, Hitler’s Hollywood is the follow-up to the filmmaker’s debut documentary on German cinema, From Caligari To Hitler [pictured], which premiered in the Venice Classics sidebar in 2014.

Joshua Reviews German Kral’s Our Last Tango [Theatrical Review]

While the phrase “it takes two to tango” screams out as something even less meaningful than a cliche, for a dance style that needs as much precision and timing as it does rhythm and dexterity, finding that perfect partner is a one in a million dream. However, if you do ever find that right partner, as seen in the new documentary Our Last Tango, much can be forgiven or forgotten.

Director German Kral introduces us to two of the greatest tango dancers, Maria Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, as they discuss their partnership both on and off the dance floor. However, and anyone with any knowledge of director Wim Wenders’ recent work will recognize his influence (he’s a producer on the picture), as we don’t spend all of our time watching these two dancers cut a rug (we’re really stocking up cliches today). Much like Wenders’ Pina,

Tiff Exclusive: Love, Jealousy, And Hate Collide In Trailer For 'Our Last Tango,' Executive Produced By Wim Wenders

Dance crazes may come and go, but the tango has endured for over a hundred years. The unique and passionate dance has traveled a long way from its beginnings in Argentina to become globally recognized, and coming to the Toronto International Film Festival is "Our Last Tango," which chronicles the journey of the tango through two of its most famous practitioners. Today we have the exclusive trailer for the film. Read More: The Essentials: The 10 Best Wim Wenders Films  Directed by German Kral, a protegé of Wim Wenders (who puts his executive producer stamp on the picture), the documentary concerns the world famous Juan Carlos Copes and María Nieves Rego, whose Broadway show "Tango Argentina" kicked off a sensation. But fireworks went off both onstage and behind-the-scenes, as the duo navigated a rocky marriage. "I would have done it all the same way, only without Juan," Regos says now. And Kral gets both on camera.

Tiff 2015 adds to their Documentary and Vanguard lineup

The Toronto International Film Festival’s prominence on the festival circuit has only grown over the years, with films from numerous different fields having gone on to critical and commercial acclaim. Among the festival’s different categories are Tiff Docs and Vanguard. Tiff Docs allows documentaries to get their own spotlight at the festival, giving acclaimed documentarians such as Michael Moore and Frederick Wiseman a platform for their films. The Vanguard section, on the other hand, showcases films that aren’t easily categorisable into a specific genre. With the Canadian Films lineup announcement having revealed the first set of films playing in each group, Tiff today revealed more of the lineup in each section. The list of newly announced films, with their official synopses, is as follows.
