Annabella Sciorra To Star In ‘God The Worm’ For Mainstay Entertainment
Exclusive: Annabella Sciorra, who earned an Emmy nom for her stint on HBO’s The Sopranos, is attached to star in God the Worm, an indie film written and to be directed by Eric Schaeffer. Mainstay Entertainment principals Norman Aladjem and Ray Moheet are producing the project, which will commence filming this month.

Sciorra will play Samantha Miller, a talented singer-songwriter who had a semi-hit record early in her career but nothing since. Now 52 and questioning life’s meaning, she is haunted by past choices in love, family and career. In her despair, she asks the universe to give her a sign that she should continue the struggle. What follows is a journey through New York City’s colorful neighborhoods where chance encounters with a roster of eccentric and unforgettable characters — some would call them angels — help illuminate her path and restore her zeal for life and music.

“Annabella Sciorra is a prodigious talent,

An intense dramatic actor, he apeared in films like The Dead Pool, Dark Man, Schindler’s List, Rob Roy and Les Miserables.

Guy Spends a Year Learning How to Colorize Black and White Shows

This video hits close to home because I have a member of my family whose career is as a colorist for film and television. Most people don’t know what a colorist does. I’ll try and explain it in a nutshell. A colorist is the reason there’s a fluidity of color from shot to shot. They’re the reason a sky is more blue or grass being more green. They’re the people behind movies like What Dreams May Come that produce amazing coloring and imagery. So when I saw this video it made me realize not only the skill that goes into

Exclusive Interview – Philip Adkins on his new film The Summoning

In an exclusive interview, Flickering Myth sat down with Hollywood actor/producer Philip Adkins to talk about his latest film The Summoning, with Eric Roberts, set for release January 10th, 2017.

FM: You have been an actor in Los Angeles for a while now, was it always your dream to be an actor? How did acting come about for you?

It really was. I have always been happy when I am acting. I do have other interests, but nothing has made me feel more alive, more excited than acting. I love portraying a character. I love having the ability to affect and influence the audience’s emotions and state of mind (If your production is good enough). Acting came about through high school. I took an elective drama class and was hooked. I never had so much fun at doing anything before.

Michael Peña Joins Ava DuVernay's Trippy A Wrinkle In Time

It was only a week ago when we reported that Sony pulled out of Michael Peña's horror-thriller The Bringing, but some fresh news means that we shouldn't feel too bad for the actor. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Peña has just been added to the cast of Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time

The Selma director followed up that Martin Luther King Jr. biopic with a hit TV series (Queen Sugar), a riveting documentary (13th), and hopes to add to her streak with A Wrinkle In Time. Based on the children's book of the same by Madeline L'Engle, the sci-fi fantasy has the potential to be a bit of a mind-bending hit for Disney.

'The Good Place' explores soulmates in 'Category 55 Emergency Doomsday Crisis'

'The Good Place' explores soulmates in 'Category 55 Emergency Doomsday Crisis'
A review of tonight's The Good Place coming up just as soon as I'm voted the Person Most Likely to be Banksy... The last couple of episodes made clear that there's more wrong with the Good Place than whatever clerical error put Eleanor there, and raised the question of whether the Good Place is fundamentally flawed, or if there's just something hinky about the neighborhood Michael has created. "Category 55 Emergency Doomsday Crisis" expands on that idea, calling to mind the famous Sartre quote about how "Hell is other people." Though the Good Place is meant to allow its residents to put aside all of their Earthly troubles and concerns, this is clearly not the case, and not just for people like Eleanor and Jason who aren't supposed to be there. Tahani spends most of this episode freaking out about her very low ranking among all the neighborhood residents, which in

Review: Kristen Bell gets a tour of 'The Good Place' in two-part series premiere
I offered some early thoughts on NBC's The Good Place in last week's review. A spoiler-filled review of the series' first two episodes coming up just as soon as my favorite book is Kendall Jennfer's Instagram feed... NBC did The Good Place a favor by airing these two episodes tonight before the show moves to its regular timeslot on Thursday at 8:30. It's not just that getting to debut after The Voice is the best exposure any new NBC show can get right now, but that "Everything Is Fine" has to spend so much time establishing the rules of the Good Place — and how the presence of the decidedly non-good Eleanor begins damaging the neighborhood — that it wouldn't have been a satisfying viewing experience on its own. (I know this because that's the only episode critics got to see in early summer, and it played much better on rewatch when

Liam Neeson-Felicity Jones film ‘A Monster Calls’ gets a new release date
You’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the tale of a giant monster performed by Liam Neeson. A Monster Calls’ release date has been pushed to December. The film, based on the 2011 children’s fantasy novel, was previously scheduled for an October 21 opening. The change moves the film out of Halloween season (the title does sound like a horror movie) and onto December 23 where it can hope to be a Christmastime family attraction. A Monster Calls will start a 10-city limited run on December 23, expanding wide into 1,500 theaters on January 6, 2017. Neeson’s performance capture created the yew tree monster, who appears at the bedroom window of Conor (newcomer Lewis MacDougall), a 12-year-old dealing with the terminal illness of his mother (Felicity Jones). Sigourney Weaver plays the boy’s mother. It’s directed by Barcelona-born filmmaker J.A. Bayona, known for The Orphanage and The Impossible and set to

In Praise of Ex Machina's Win

Manuel here. One of our favorite wins from last night’s Academy Awards was Ex Machina’s triumph in the Best Visual Effects category.

We marveled at its nod when the nominations came out mostly because it seemed like the low-key supportive use of visual effects that rarely get cited in the category (why else would you pass over the effects of say, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?). Add to that a stellar category across the board—Judy! Bb-8! Furiosa! Mars!—and the A24 film win feels all the more laudable. Sometimes, it seems, “best” need not mean “most” to Oscar members.

But two things are particularly striking to the inner number cruncher:

1. Ex Machina became the second non-Best Picture nominee to win in this category since the Academy expanded the Best Pic roster. Interstellar, as Amir reminded me in the comments, was the first. As you’ll remember,

Adg Awards Offer Insight on Best Production Design Oscar Race

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The 20th Annual Art Directors Guild Awards were held on Sunday and presented three awards to films in this year’s best picture race. Divided into genre categories (best period film, best fantasy film, best contemporary film), the Art Directors Guild awards those films’ whose production design they deem to be the most impressive, and this year’s winners were The Revenant for best period film, Mad Max: Fury Road for best fantasy, and The Martian for best contemporary.

The Adg Awards are a relatively recent honor, as its corresponding Oscar equivalent, best production design, used to be the accolade bestowed upon production designers prior to the Adg’s inception in 1996.

This year, with each of the three major categories’ winners also being up for best picture at the Oscars, an Adg award could go a long way in predicting this year’s best production design recipient.
