Newton Thomas Sigel (‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ cinematographer) on the ‘love’ that went into Freddie Mercury biopic [Exclusive Video Interview]

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.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel on ‘finding the cinematic language’
Newton Thomas Sigel just received a BAFTA Awards nomination for Best Cinematography for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the blockbuster biopic of Freddie Mercury and Queen. “To be recognized by my British colleagues, in the birthplace of Queen, is more than I could have hoped for,” admits Sigel. The film reaped seven BAFTAs bids in all. “I am elated for Rami and my co-conspirators on Team Bo Rhap. We gave blood, sweat and tears to tell the story of Freddie and Queen, so I am eternally grateful all these wonderful artists are getting their due.”

Bohemian Rhapsody” has already defied expectations by breaking the bank at the box office and winning Best Drama at Sunday’s Golden Globes. Sigel readily admits, “It’s mind-blowing. I had somebody from South Korea tell me that they saw the film five times in a regular theatre and it got a standing ovation. I’ve never had that before!

“Like Most Looks in Film, It’s a Bit of a Recipe”: Cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel on Using Varying Cameras, Lenses and LUTs on Bohemian Rhapsody

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. I’m crossing my fingers for The Jim Croce Story. You can thank Bohemian Rhapsody for that potential onslaught. The Queen biopic has grossed more than $600 million worldwide so far on a budget of roughly $50 million. With the film still out in theaters, cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel spoke to Filmmaker about recreating Queen’s epic concert lighting, […]

Hear Grandaddy’s Sprawling New Song ‘Bison on the Plains’
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

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.'”

(You can check out Eddie Redmayne explaining his weird Jupiter Ascending voice as part of that same series here).

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 (‘Wildlife’): Reactions to her character show how we hold women to different standards than men [Exclusive Video Interview]

Carey Mulligan (‘Wildlife’): Reactions to her character show how we hold women to different standards than men [Exclusive Video Interview]
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.

BossLogic Imagines Brie Larson as Samus in the Metroid Movie

BossLogic Imagines Brie Larson as Samus in the Metroid Movie
Artist BossLogic has created a new piece that shows us what Brie Larson could look like as Samus Aran in the Metroid movie. Earlier this week, the Captain Marvel star shared her epic Zero Suit Samus Halloween costume, and fans of the gaming series went crazy. Many assumed that the actress was just wearing the costume for fun, but when asked about it, Larson admitted that she wanted to make a Metroid movie, which made fans even more excited.

While there has not been anything official announced about Brie Larson starring as Samus Aran in a possible Metroid movie, artist BossLogic, who is on vacation in Hawaii, decided to whip up a quick rendering of what Larson could look like on the big screen. Both shots of the actress are taken from the side profile, with the first showing hints of the Zero Suit, and the second showing the iconic

How ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Recreated 1985’s Live Aid

How ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Recreated 1985’s Live Aid
Bohemian Rhapsody” is bookended with one of Queen’s most iconic performances: a 20-minute set at Wembley Stadium outside of London for 1985’s Live Aid concert. Featuring some of the band’s biggest hits, including “Radio Ga Ga,” “We Are The Champions,” “We Will Rock You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” recreating the scale of that record-breaking event — a sold-out crowd of 72,000 and a global TV audience of many millions — proved an equally enormous task for the filmmakers.

“The film starts with Freddie arriving at the stadium and there’s this long tracking shot of him from behind, as he walks from his dressing room through the backstage area and up to the stage, and pulls the curtain aside to look at the enormous crowd all waiting for them, and then we cut to the whole back story,” says Dp Newton Thomas Sigel. “So it sets up the dramatic arc of the whole film,

Brie Larson Is Metroid's Samus for Halloween, Now She Wants to Do the Movie

Brie Larson Is Metroid's Samus for Halloween, Now She Wants to Do the Movie
Brie Larson's awesome Samus Halloween costume has fans wanting her to star in a big screen adaptation of Metroid. As it turns out, Brie Larson wants to make the movie as well. Halloween 2018 has come and gone, but Larson's Zero Suit Samus Aran costume is still being talked about, sparking rumors that the actress is taking on another female hero role, this time in the iconic Nintendo franchise. Larson had the look down perfectly, even down to the blonde hair that Samus has in the video game series. A Metroid movie has been talked about for years, but nothing has ever come into fruition.

Brie Larson is currently Captain Marvel for the McU, so she more than likely doesn't have the time to play Samus Aran in a Metroid film. With that being said, it seems that the actress is willing to works some overtime. When a fan asked

Bold Films’ Walters Talks About Forces Changing Indie Market

  • Variety
Producer/financier Bold Films made its mark in recent years with critical and commercial indie hits like “Whiplash,” “Drive” and “Nightcrawler.” Its co-founders — Russian-born entrepreneur, chairman and backer Michel Litvak and CEO Gary Michael Walters — hope to achieve similar results with the just-released art-house drama “Colette,” pictured above, and A24’s recent pickup “Vox Lux” (out Dec. 7). But after some low-budget misfires and downsizing, the company is looking to take bigger gambles. Variety spoke with Walters to discuss Bold’s new direction.

How are you planning to change the company’s approach?

We’ll be looking into getting domestic distribution earlier in the process, and creating more commercial projects that are going to be attractive as wide releases. We’ll give them some edge, but I think of it as the “Mary Poppins” principle: you need a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. More accessible films, maybe with more action components,

Captain Marvel Star Brie Larson Was Samus From Metroid For Halloween; Should She Play The Character in a Movie?

It looks like Brie Larson is a fan of Metroid. The Captain Marvel actress ended up dressing up as the character Samus from the classic game wearing the popular Zero Suit. She looks great and it made me wonder if she should play the character in a live action film.

Zero Suit Samus had an evening with Harry Potter and it was cute.

I personally wouldn’t mind seeing Larson take on the role of Samus! She’s a great actress that would easily fit the part.

As of right now there is no Metroid movie in development, but Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, wants to make one and he recently shared his pitch for it that he says is too crazy and doesn't
