Newton Thomas Sigel (‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ cinematographer) on the ‘love’ that went into Freddie Mercury biopic [Exclusive Video Interview]
“In all the movies I’ve done, I’ve never quite seen this confluence of people’s belief in the project they’re working on,” says “Bohemian Rhapsody” cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel. The film has generated a lot of press for its behind-the-scenes drama (director Bryan Singer was fired before shooting was completed), so the veteran cameraman admits he was “concerned that all this unbelievable effort and love that people were putting into it would be for naught.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Sigel above.

Sigel’s fears were finally put to rest when this biopic about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek) opened so well at the box office. As of this writing it has grossed $750 million worldwide. “To see the movie received by the public so phenomenally,” combined with its recent Golden Globe victories for Best Film Drama and Best Film

IMDb Launches Free Ad-Supported Streaming Service

Like it or not, the world has yet another new streaming service available for movie and TV lovers to enjoy. IMDb has officially launched a new ad-supported streaming video service titled IMDb Freedive which is, as of today, available for anyone with an Amazon Fire TV device or a computer with an internet connection.

While there are an increasing amount of streaming services being unleashed upon the world, to the point that it can be frustrating for consumers, IMDb Freedive has the added benefit of being free. The catch is that those who use the service will have to suffer through ads now and again, but again, it is otherwise free. IMDb is owned by Amazon and this represents a push by the company to get into the increasingly popular ad-supported streaming game, as this will be totally separate from their already popular Amazon Prime Video service.

If you’re a fan of the music of the 1970s, your favorite artist may soon have a biopic on the way. An Elton John flick is already en route. We’ll probably get a Bowie movie. Maybe Zeppelin.

The Queen biopic has grossed more than $600 million worldwide so far on a budget of roughly $50 million.

Grandaddy have unveiled their sprawling new song “Bison on the Plains,” the band’s first new music since releasing their reunion album Last Place in March 2017.

The synth-heavy song was inspired by the Cars’ 1984 single “Drive,” frontman Jason Lytle said in a statement. “Setting out with the intent of replicating the ‘feel and vibe’ of the song ‘Drive’ which is one of my favorite Cars songs …I got a little of the way into “Bison on the Plains” (Botp) and realized I had failed,” Lytle said.

Albert Brooks Once Pranked Oscar Isaac by Screwing With His ‘Star Wars’ Offer
The day Oscar Isaac learned J.J. Abrams wanted to meet him in Paris about a secretive role in his upcoming blockbuster, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the actor was hard at work filming “A Most Violent Year.” Directed by J.C. Chandor, the crime drama cast Isaac opposite Jessica Chastain and Albert Brooks. When Brooks found out about the pending offer, the industry veteran decided to pull Isaac’s leg with a phone prank.

“I actually still have the voice message saved,” Isaac recently told GQ. “I remember in between shooting I got a message from an unknown caller, and it was a voice. It was like, ‘Hey Oscar, it’s J.J. Ya know, you don’t have to come all the way out to Paris. What’re you gonna do, play a droid? You don’t need to be doing that…actually, this is Albert Brooks.'”

Review: Muse Get Lost in the Eighties on ‘Simulation Theory’

The first LP from Muse since their 2015 album Drones is a throwback to the first seven years of the Eighties. The tom-toms are cavernous like a Jan Hammer or Phil Collins production on the Miami Vice soundtrack. The dystopian, technophobic action movie narrative seems in the same vein as films like The Running Man and The Terminator. A band that’s logged nearly 20 years in the major label rock sphere, Muse mixed Radiohead’s alt-rock shirt-pullers with Queen’s triumphant heft in epic jams about theoretical physics, systems science and environmental philosophy.

Carey Mulligan notices that there have been “quite strong reactions to my character” in “Wildlife,” “principally because she’s not doing the right thing. She’s not being a great mom, and she’s not being the perfect housewife.” This shows how “we hold women up differently to the way we hold men. It’s been a reminder that a lot of the things that run through ‘Wildlife’ are still pretty relevant today.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Mulligan above.
