You Have to See These Stunning WWII Veteran Portraits Captured by a California Photographer
Zach Coco is a man on a mission — and time is not on his side.

The California-based photographer wants to photograph and interview as many surviving WWII veterans as he can.

Through his non-profit Pictures For Heroes, Coco travels around the country with money raised on GoFundMe to meet and honor hero men and women.

“What I’m learning about the war and about our country in the past 100 years is so inspiring,” Coco, 30, tells People. “Most of them were teenagers at the time and every time I learn about their life history it sounds like a movie script.

Top 10 Movies Filmed in Thailand

Over the years there have been a great number of movies that have been filmed in Thailand, some of those films were supposed to be filmed there whilst others were filmed there as a stand in for places such as Cambodia and Vietnam.

One of the main benefits of using Thailand is that the production costs can be kept very low if the movie requires things such as glorious beaches, jungles or even elephants! Plus, with an army of experienced film crew members residing in Thailand production staffing costs can also be kept low too by hiring local yet skilled personnel.

There are of course plenty of benefits for Thailand as a whole when any major films are filmed there, as it helps the tourist industry no end, with many people wishing to visit many of the places a film was filmed at.

With that in mind we are now

Nicolas Cage Old & Shaky But Not Scared in 'Dying of the Light' Trailer

There's a chance we just might get a break from the terrible films that Nicolas Cage has been making lately. Director Paul Schrader (writer of Raging Bull and Taxi Driver) is entering espionage thriller territory with Dying of the Light, and Cage isn't playing the kind of protagonist you'd expect. Complete with grayed hair, and a shaky, elderly demeanor, Cage plays an ailing veteran CIA agent who is hellbent on taking down a terrorist who has evaded him for years. This doesn't look half bad, but Shrader hasn't directed the best films throughout his career. At least it looks better than Cage's other recent work. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Paul Schrader's Dying of the Light, originally from Apple: Dying of the Light is written and directed Paul Schrader (director of The Canyons, Adam Resurrected and writer of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull). Nicolas Cage ignites a powder

Willem Dafoe and Jeff Goldblum Talk The Grand Budapest Hotel, the Wes Anderson Experience, Preparing for the Role, and More

I love everything about Wes Anderson movies. From the way he creates unique worlds to the unusual characters that occupy the screen, Anderson is a one-of-a-kind filmmaker that always makes something special. His newest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, just premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and it continues his streak of making exceptional films. The story mostly takes place in early 20th-century and revolves around the goings-on at a famous European hotel where a legendary concierge (Ralph Fiennes) mentors a young employee (Tony Revolori) against the backdrop of a changing continent.

Yoram Kaniuk obituary

Israeli novelist who became disillusioned with his homeland

The novelist Yoram Kaniuk, who has died aged 83 of bone marrow cancer, belonged to the generation that created the state of Israel. He fought in the 1948 war from which it emerged independent, but, along with some other writers of his generation, he became disillusioned with his homeland, disenchanted with its very spirit. "The state I took part in founding had ended long ago and I am not interested in what it has become. It is ludicrous, blunt, vile, dark, sick, and it will not last. We used to think it would be different."

In the half century up to his death, he published 29 books, most of them novels, with subjects ranging from the 1948 war, the Holocaust and the occupation of territories gained in 1967 to parent-child relationships and ageing. Among his best-known are Hemo, King of Jerusalem (1968), the story of a wounded soldier

Exclusive: Paul Schrader To Direct 'The Dying Of The Light,' Nicolas Winding Refn May Produce

It's coming on five years since 2008's "Adam Resurrected," writer/director Paul Schrader's last feature film, but he's returning in a big way. Later this summer, his independently financed and Kickstarter-assisted "The Canyons," starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen, will see a release by IFC Films as well as make a splash overseas playing out-of-competition at the Venice Film Festival (where he'll also serve as President of the International Jury for the Orizzonti section of the fest). And lucky enough for fans of the director, we won't be waiting another five years for Schrader to mount his next feature. Catching up with the filmmaker by phone today to talk about "The Canyons," we asked him about his script for "The Dying Of The Light," a project Nicolas Winding Refn was gearing up to direct a couple of years back, until it fell apart.

Exclusive: Broken Social Scene Co-Founder Brendan Canning Scoring Paul Schrader's 'The Canyons'

For his first feature film since 2008's "Adam Resurrected," famed screenwriter and director Paul Schrader is drawing on a particularly diverse and unique group of talent for "The Canyons." Boasting a script penned by Bret Easton Ellis with a cast featuring adult film star James Deen, Lindsay Lohan and up and comers Nolan Funk and Amanda Brook, another intriguing element has been added to the production. Broken Social Scene co-founder Brendan Canning has been selected to score "The Canyons." While the musician has found fame and acclaim both as a member of Bss and as a solo artist, he's no stranger to the movie world. Canning has scored films such as Bruce McDonald's “The Tracy Fragments” and “Trigger” as well as “Snow Cake.” And alongside Broken Social Scene, he's participated on soundtrack work for “Half Nelson”, “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and “It’s Kind of a...

International Sales Agent: Red Sea Media's First Time at Cannes

Red Sea Media is experiencing its first Cannes. Founded in November 2011 by Roman Kopelevich and Roman Viaris, the company is backed by Russian investors. Its initial slate of films is quite strong for such a new company. Aside from the two action films Anchor Bay just acquired for all English speaking territories, Officer Down (Stephen Dorff and James Woods) and Pawn (Forest Whitaker, Ray Liotta and Nikki Reed), the slate includes A White Trash Christmas (Taryn Manning, Eric Roberts, Beverly D’Angelo), West Texas Lullaby (Val Kilmer), The Frozen (Brit Morgan), The Stoning Of Soraya M (Jim Caviezel) and Snowmen (Ray Liotta), and Frankie Go Boom (from Sundance). They get films from diverse sources, including from his attorney, Elsa Ramo who represents financiers and producers. He wants to establish a brand as a source of Russian films such as those by Serge Selyanov (Mongol) who is also a distributor in Russia (Nashe Kino). His main investor is Vadim Goryainov. The company was established when a friend of his mother (who is also in the business) approached him with 3 Moscow based companies.

While the company is new, Kopelevich himself has over 20 years of experience. Prior to Red Sea Media, he served as head of sales at Bleiberg Entertainment, where he sold the critically acclaimed films The Band’S Visit and Adam Resurrected (Jeff Goldblum). Previously, at Morgan Creek, Kopelevich sold the rights to The Good Shepherd (Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie and Robert De Niro) as well as Two For The Money (Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey). Prior to that, he worked at Media 8 Entertainment, where he handled foreign rights for Academy Award winner Monster (Charlize Theron); The Upside Of Anger (Kevin Costner); Havoc (Anne Hathaway); Man About Town (Ben Affleck) and Running Scared (Paul Walker). His first film job was in 1991 with New World under Brandon Tartikoff and Ben Silverman who is currently the founder and CEO of Electus, a next generation entertainment studio staked by Iac's Barry Diller. His stint with New World continued after Ron Pearlman sold the company to Fox News Corps for $2 billion which helped to establish Fox Network into what it became 2 years later.

The first time we met Roman Kopelevich was during the internet bubble days of 2000 when FilmFinders was the acquired by iFilm and was the darling of all the film internet sites because it was one of two film databases in existence, Roman was working with FilmBazaar.com which covered Cannes that year with its Orange signage. We have since found out that he was born in Lithuania in 1971 and immigrated to America when he was seven years old with his twin sister and his parents who were Russian Jews.

The other Roman who owns the company is, Roman Viaris, formerly with Comerica Bank, as well as Nu Image Entertainment and served as the CFO of Voltage Pictures.

Exclusive: Ayelet Zurer Talks Darling Companion, Man of Steel

Exclusive: Ayelet Zurer Talks Darling Companion, Man of Steel
With her statuesque beauty, Israeli-born actress Ayelet Zurer has made a strong impression in genre fare like “Vantage Point” and “Angels & Demons,” and especially heavy, hard-hitting dramas like “Fugitive Pieces,” ”Adam Resurrected” and Steven Spielberg’s “Munich,” in which she plays Eric Bana’s sympathetic wife and serves as his emotional mooring. Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan’s “Darling Companion,” then, represents a nice, unexpected change-up for Zurer, who plays Carmen, an exotic seasonal housesitter who ends up helping her employers (Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline) search for their missing dog, and in the process develops an unexpected connection with a member of their extended family, Bryan (Mark Duplass).

Portrait of the artist: Jeff Goldblum, actor

'One reviewer said I looked like a giant gnome. I guess I do have prominent ears'

What got you started?

My parents always told me that if I found something I really loved doing, that was a good guidepost. I acted for the first time in a summer camp between fifth and sixth grade, and I was enthralled with it. As I got older, I became obsessed.

You've performed on stage in London and Broadway. Do you see any differences between the two scenes?

No. I was just at a fundraiser for the Old Vic, where Stephen Fry talked about the historical differences between British and American theatre acting. His final conclusion was that now, there are none: acting is instinctual. I agree.

What's the biggest myth about the movie business?

That you can skin the acting cat by improvising. While that may be true sometimes, there are directors who
