Hollywood’s Best Movie Remakes

Hollywood’s Best Remakes On 6th April, Bruce Willis will star in the new action-packed crime drama Death Wish directed by famed horror filmmaker Eli Roth.

Following an attack on his wife and daughter, Paul Kersey (Willis) dedicates himself to seeking justice for his family and also avenges other innocent victims he meets through his work as a doctor in a hospital. Set on bringing his own kind of justice to the city by whatever means necessary, the internet buzzes wondering who this hooded man is, asking “is he a hero, or is it wrong?” to take the law into your own hands.

As Death Wish is a remake of a 1974 film of the same name, we are celebrating its release on 6th April by looking back at some of the best remakes to have graced the big screen.

Blade Runner 2049 Dp Roger Deakins Breaks Long Oscar Losing Streak

Blade Runner 2049 Dp Roger Deakins Breaks Long Oscar Losing Streak
Legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins has finally won a sorely-deserved Oscar for his work on Blade Runner 2049. Deakins has been one of the most respected talents working in the industry for a very long time now and has helped bring some of the greatest movies of the last few decades to life. At the 2018 Oscars, he finally won after having been nominated 13 times previously. 14th time's a charm, apparently.

Roger Deakins was seen as the favorite at this year's Oscars for his stunning work on Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited to sequel to Ridley Scott's original 1982 sci-fi classic. The movie may have been a bit of a financial flop, but it was critically beloved and a true visual achievement, which was in no small part thanks to Deakins' work. Blade Runner 2049 also walked away with the Best Visual Effects Oscar last night. Here's what Deakins had to say in his acceptance speech,

2018 Oscars ‘In Memoriam’: Missing honorees include Academy Award-winning actress, Oscar-nominated songwriter, and breakthrough director

2018 Oscars ‘In Memoriam’: Missing honorees include Academy Award-winning actress, Oscar-nominated songwriter, and breakthrough director
The “In Memoriam” segment of the Academy Awards is guaranteed to be two things: moving and frustrating. While we laud the academy for its efforts to be even more expansive at the 2018 Oscars with the number of people to whom it pays tribute (51), it is vexing that certain famous faces were excluded. Above, watch as Eddie Vedder sings the late Tom Petty‘s “Room at the Top” as the three minute video unspools.

Among those missing from this “In Memoriam” video, the most glaring omission is 1956 Best Supporting Actress winner Dorothy Malone (“Written on the Wind”). After more than a decade as a contract player at both Rko and Warner Bros., she changed her good girl image with her searing performance as an alcoholic in Douglas Sirk’s lush drama and took home an Oscar for her efforts. She went on to headline TV’s version of the Oscar-nominated “Peyton Place.

Oscars: Adam West, Glen Campbell Left Out of In Memoriam Tribute
Each year, the Oscars ceremony includes a moving tribute to the film industry leaders who died in the past year — and each year, big names are left out of the prestigious lineup. This year, the Academy excluded multiple former Oscar winners — Dorothy Malone, who received best supporting actress honors for her portrayal of an alcoholic in Written on the Wind (1956), and Glen Campbell, who starred in True Grit (1969) and earned a best original song nomination.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder performed Tom Petty’s “Room at the Top” in a tribute to the singer, who died in...

Roger Deakins Finally Wins Best Cinematography Oscar After 14 Nominations

Roger Deakins Finally Wins Best Cinematography Oscar After 14 Nominations
Roger Deakins finally has his Oscar!

After 14 nominations in the category, the celebrated director of photography has finally won Oscar’s Best Cinematography trophy.

Deakins, 68, accepted the award on Sunday at the 90th annual Academy Awards for his work on Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049.

He beat out fellow nominees Hoyte Van Hoytema (Dunkirk), Bruno Delbonnel (Darkest Hour), Dan Laustsen (The Shape of Water), and Rachel Morrison (Mudbound).

“I really love my job,” Deakins said in his speech. “I’ve been doing it a long time, as you can see. But one of the reasons I love it is the people I work with.

Will ‘The Shape of Water’ be the ninth Best Picture Oscar champ not to win any of its three-plus acting nominations?

Will ‘The Shape of Water’ be the ninth Best Picture Oscar champ not to win any of its three-plus acting nominations?
The Shape of Water” is one of two Best Picture Oscar nominees with three acting nominations — the other being “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” — but star Sally Hawkins and supporting players Octavia Spencer and Richard Jenkins are not predicted to win any of them. If they indeed go 0-3 on Sunday and “The Shape of Water” takes the top prize, the fantasy drama will join eight other Best Picture champs that did not convert any of its three-plus acting nominations into wins.

“Birdman” (2014) was the most recent Best Picture winner not to carry an acting award from at least three nominations, as Michael Keaton, Emma Stone and Edward Norton fell to Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) and J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), respectively. Arquette and Simmons were the supporting frontrunners all season, but Keaton was locked in a tight Best Actor race with Redmayne until the SAG Awards

2018 Gold Derby Film Awards winners: ‘Call Me by Your Name’ wins Best Picture, but voters spread the wealth
Call Me by Your Name” came out on top at the 16th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards when winners were announced on March 1, 2018. It won Best Picture in a competitive field of 10 films that also included “Baby Driver,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “Dunkirk,” “The Florida Project,” “Get Out,” “I, Tonya,” “Lady Bird,” “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Scroll down for the complete list of winners, which were decided by more than 1,000 Gold Derby users who voted for their favorites in our predictions center. And watch our complete presentation of the winners in the video above.

The win for “Call Me by Your Name” wasn’t necessarily surprising.

2018 Cinema Audio Society Awards: ‘Dunkirk’ wins on way to Oscars

2018 Cinema Audio Society Awards: ‘Dunkirk’ wins on way to Oscars
At Saturday’s Cinema Audio Society Awards, “Dunkirk” edged out three of its Oscar rivals for Best Sound Mixing — “Baby Driver,” “The Shape of Water” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” — as well as “Wonder Woman” for the top award. The Cas snubbed “Blade Runner: 2049,” which won big with the Motion Picture Sound Editors on Feb. 18

This win for “Dunkirk” does not guarantee that it will take home the Oscar. Only 12 of the 24 winners with the Cas have repeated at the Academy Awards.

“Coco” won best sound mixing in an animated feature over “Cars 3,””Despicable Me 3,” “Ferdinand” and “The Lego Batman Movie.” And “Jane” claimed the documentary feature prize over “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” “Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars,” “Gaga: Five Feet Two,” and “Long Strange Trip.”

Oscars 2018: Will ‘Blade Runner 2049’ resume the marriage between Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects?

Oscars 2018: Will ‘Blade Runner 2049’ resume the marriage between Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects?
You wouldn’t necessarily consider the Oscar races for Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects to be connected. Indeed, they’re markedly different fields and rarely went to the same film; for a while “Titanic” (1997) and “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” (2001) were the only two that claimed both. But recently there was an unusual five-year streak when the two categories went hand-in-hand. “Blade Runner 2049” could be the latest film to achieve that one-two punch.

The marriage between Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects started with “Avatar” (2009) and then continued with “Inception” (2010), “Hugo” (2011), “Life of Pi” (2012) and “Gravity” (2013). Then they split again for the next three years. “Birdman” won Cinematography for 2014, while “Interstellar” claimed Visual Effects. Then “The Revenant” took Cinematography for 2015, while “Ex Machina” pulled off an upset for Visual Effects. And “La La Land” was awarded Cinematography for 2016, while “The Jungle Book” won Visual Effects.

2018 Oscars: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ would be the first cinematography champ to defeat a Best Picture-nominated film in 12 years

After wins this weekend at the American Society of Cinematographers and BAFTA, “Blade Runner 2049” appears to be well-positioned for the Oscars. Nothing is a sure thing with hard-luck 13-time loser Roger Deakins, but if he pulls this out, this would be the first time in 12 years that a non-Best Picture nominee beat a Best Picture nominee for Best Cinematography.

The last film to do this was “Memoirs of a Geisha” (2005), which edged out Best Picture nominees “Brokeback Mountain” and “Good Night, and Good Luck,” and non-Best Picture contenders “Batman Begins” and “The New World.” The following year’s Best Cinematography field was comprised entirely of non-Best Picture nominees — “Pan’s Labyrinth” beat “The Black Dahlia,” “Children of Men,” “The Illusionist” and “The Prestige” — so that is the last time a non-Best Picture nominee won the category. Since then, every cinematography champ has vied for the top award.

Mpse Golden Reel winners: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ wins over Oscar frontrunner ‘Dunkirk’ in key category

All five of Oscar nominees for Best Sound Editing numbered among the contenders for the Golden Reel Awards bestowed by the Motion Picture Sound Editors on Sunday (Feb. 18). Oscar frontrunner “Dunkirk” lost the category equivalent — Sound Editing (Effects and Foley)– to “Blade Runner 2049.” The WWII epic did win for music over the sci-fi film.

Both films lost the dialogue & Adr race to “War for the Planet of the Apes,” which was snubbed by the sound branch of the academy. The other three Oscar nominees were shut out at the Golden Reel ceremony. “Baby Driver and “The Shape of Water” contended in those same three races while “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was only nominated for its sound editing.

The 65th annual edition of these awards took place at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. Sound wiz John P. Fasal was feted for his lifetime of achievement and Kathryn Bigelow received the Filmmaker Award.

2018 BAFTAs: Roger Deakins (‘Blade Runner 2049’) would tie Emmanuel Lubezki with four cinematography wins
Roger Deakins is still missing an Oscar from his resume, but he’s got plenty of BAFTA Awards — so many that if the “Blade Runner 2049” cinematographer prevails Sunday, he’ll join Emmanuel Lubezki with the second-most wins in the category at four behind Geoffrey Unsworth’s five.

In our latest predictions, Deakins has 8/15 odds to win over “Dunkirk” (3/1 odds), “The Shape of Water” (14/1 odds), “Darkest Hour” (66/1 odds) and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (100/1 odds). An eight-time nominee, Deakins took home BAFTAs for lensing “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (2001), “No Country for Old Men” (2007) and “True Grit” (2010).

Roger Deakins’ Record Shot at Oscar Glory

Roger Deakins’ Record Shot at Oscar Glory
With his Oscar nomination for Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049,” cinematographer Roger Deakins moved past legendary lenser George J. Folsey (“Executive Suite,” “Meet Me in St. Louis”) as the most-nominated director of photography in history to never win the gold (14 nominations and counting). Of course, the “Blade Runner” bid is still pending, so that status could finally change on March 4. But Deakins’ consistent presence on the circuit brings with it a persistent question: What will it take for one of the most celebrated artists in the industry to finally get his due on Hollywood’s biggest night?

For his part, Deakins isn’t the least bit fazed by his ongoing bad luck with the Academy. “Oh, you know, I’m too old for all of that,” he told Variety in a recent interview. “What you do doesn’t change. The fun is doing it.”

Fair enough, but for such an influential craftsman to have gone unrecognized

Oscars flashback: Joel and Ethan Coen win Best Picture for ‘No Country for Old Men’ 10 years ago [Watch]
Producer Scott Rudin made one of the greatest decisions of his life when he approached Joel and Ethan Coen about directing a project for him in 2005. He had purchased the film rights to “No Country for Old Men,” a new novel by Cormac McCarthy about a drug deal gone wrong on the United States/Mexico border in the 1980s. But they were hesitant to accept since they were known for writing their own original movies, including an Oscar victory for the screenplay of Fargo” in 1996.
