Tim Robbins to Be Feted at Karlovy Vary Film Festival
The Karlovy Vary Film Festival, the leading movie event in Central and Eastern Europe, will honor Tim Robbins with its award for outstanding contribution to world cinema, the fest announced Tuesday, and the actor will screen two pics he directed and wrote, the acerbic polemic “Bob Roberts” and the tribute to pre-wwii music and politics “Cradle Will Rock.”

Robbins, who also wrote music for several of his films, including “Bob Roberts” with brother David, will perform with The Rogues Gallery Band. Terry Gilliam will also roll into the Czech Republic spa town for the fest, running June 29 to July 7, to screen “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” his disaster-prone take on the Cervantes classic that took 18 years to complete and premiered in Cannes.

Anna Paquin will also be feted, screening the family grief road movie “The Parting Glass” along with the film’s director, her husband Stephen Moyer, screenwriter and

Tag opens in theaters on June 15 and Wamg has your passes to the advance screening in St. Louis.

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!”

Emmy Contenders for Sound Create New Aural Landscapes

Sound in television has, arguably, always played second fiddle to the images. And as with other sound professionals on the top contending shows in the sound categories, Dean Hurley, supervising sound editor on Showtime’s “Twin Peaks,” worked hard to craft a cinematic aural landscape despite challenges ranging from “the usual technical ones,” as he puts it, to the accelerated post schedules of today’s TV shows.

David Lynch likes to take his time with sound, and it was hard working within the conventions of a TV series and allowing him the usual freedom he enjoys,” says Hurley, who’s worked for Lynch for 13 years.

Say Goodbye to Your Childhood - Netflix Is Getting Rid of a Ton of Disney Movies

Every month, Netflix goes through its catalog and purges a few titles, but I have to say, next month is going to hit me especially hard. In May, the streaming service is getting rid of a ton of my favorite Disney Channel original movies. The Cheetah Girls franchise? Gone. The Camp Rock movies? No more. Even underrated hits like Jump In! and Read It and Weep are being scrubbed from Netflix. The only solace I have is that High School Musical 3 - arguably the best HSM movie - will be available soon. Get ready to say goodbye to your childhood as these Disney movies (and many more classics) disappear from your queue forever.

It’s Time for Action, Not Promises, to Get More Women in Filmmaking (Guest Column)

In recent months, media accounts of sexual harassment scandals and eye-popping pay disparities have given way to stories about “tectonic” shifts in the film industry. The sheer volume and often contradictory nature of the coverage on the issue of women working in film have created the simultaneous feelings that everything has changed and nothing has changed.

An ad campaign for Rolex watches touts Kathryn Bigelow as one of the “masters of cinema,” yet she is the only woman to have ever won a director Oscar. A help line now exists for those who have been sexually harassed, yet the fate of many high-profile offenders remains undecided. Representatives of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission — which has issued charges of gender discrimination against the big studios — continue to negotiate with executives, but there is no (public) word of a resolution.

In the midst of this uncertainty, one reality remains clear. The percentages

‘The Yellow Birds’ Trailer: Alden Ehrenreich And Jennifer Aniston Headline This Iraq War Drama

The modern war movie doesn’t just showcase the epic and incredibly tense battle scenes that are a trademark of the genre. No, they also include the effect of the civilian war on these soldiers, long after they come back from war. That’s what “The Hurt Locker” did so well in 2009, and that’s what the new film “The Yellow Birds” is attempting to do now.

In the first trailer for the Sundance hit, we meet a couple of soldiers who formed a tight bond while fighting together in Iraq.

‘The Yellow Birds’ Trailer: Alden Ehrenreich Goes Indie Before ‘Solo’ in Iraq War Drama
Everyone is going to know Alden Ehrenreich’s name later this month when Disney releases “Solo: A Star Wars Solo” around the world, which should only get more eyeballs on the indie war drama “The Yellow Birds.” The film is the latest from “Blue Caprice” director Alexandre Moors and debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

The Yellow Birds” stars Ehrenreich and “Ready Player One” star Tye Sheridan as soldiers who become friends during a tour in Iraq.

With its mix of psychological drama and intense war scenes, “The Yellow Birds” looks like a compelling mix of “The Hurt Locker” and Moors’ own “Blue Caprice.” Moors is known for shooting in close-up to create
