2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Sound Editing

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Sound Editing
The sound in “Dunkirk” is crucial for this almost-silent, radically structured action movie. And “War for the Planet of the Apes” is also relatively dialogue light–except when Woody Harrelson’s Kurtz-like Colonel and Andy Serkis as Caesar explode in a dramatic face-off. And each time Ryan Gosling’s K in “Blade Runner,” Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman or Ansel Elgort’s Baby Driver enters a new landscape, the sound design clues us into what’s going on.

Here are our current predictions in alphabetical order. No movie will be deemed a frontrunner until I see it.

Frontrunners:

Will Files (“War for the Planet of the Apes”)

Richard King (“Dunkirk”)

Mark Mangini (“Blade Runner 2049”)

James Mather (“Wonder Woman”)

Julian Slater (“Baby Driver”)

Contenders:

Craig Berkey (“Darkest Hour”)

Richard Hymns (“The Post”)

Eric A. Norris, Steven Ticknor (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”)

Warren Shaw (“Beauty and the Beast”)

Donald Sylvester (“Logan”)

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Visual Effects

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Visual Effects
A bunch of sequels and a remake are vying for the Best Visual Effects Oscar this year, many of them from Disney, including Bill Condon’s live-action remake of Disney’s classic “Beauty and the Beast,” Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” and Lucasfilm’s upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Three Fox films offer stunning VFX: “War for the Planet of the Apes,” which advances its visual effects technology over the last Matt Reeves installment featuring Weta Digital’s astonishing array of digital apes led by performance capture master Andy Serkis as Caesar, could win Weta’s Joe Letteri (“Avatar,” “King Kong,” “The Lord of the Rings”) his fifth Oscar. Another visually sumptuous sequel is Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049.” And Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” is also impressive.

Two Warner Bros. blockbusters, Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” and Patty Jenkins’ World War I superhero origin myth “Wonder Woman,

Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Daisy Ridley Hints That Snoke’s A Woman

In a new interview with USA Today, Daisy Ridley was on hand to fuel not one, but two common fan theories while discussing her character Rey’s journey in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Both of these are to do with Andy Serkis’ Supreme Leader Snoke. Though the head of the First Order remained in the shadows in The Force Awakens, he’ll have a much bigger part to play in Episode VIII, and we should get to learn a little more about him.

For one, Ridley all but confirmed what most fans have suspected ever since the second Last Jedi trailer dropped: that Snoke is speaking to Rey about great power in his voiceover (see video above) and not his apprentice Kylo Ren. You can read all about that here, but what we’re interested in today is another seemingly throwaway comment she made.

Lead Actor Oscar Race Is Battle of Marquee Names

Lead Actor Oscar Race Is Battle of Marquee Names
The lead actor race showcases a wide variety of performances, from vets playing real people (Gary Oldman blustering as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour” and Jake Gyllenhaal as Boston Marathon survivor Jeff Bauman in “Stronger”) to newcomers including Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”) and Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out”) portraying fictional characters. There are also previous winners such as Denzel Washington in “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” and and Daniel Day-Lewis and Tom Hanks in two films that have yet to screen, “Phantom Thread” and “The Post.” But the prestige behind their projects are enough to put the lead actors in a frontrunner position. Hugh Jackman has both “The Greatest Showman” and “Logan,” but appears to be centering on the latter for awards, and could land another nom. And James Franco channeling Tommy Wiseau in “The Disaster Artist” could just be crazy enough to pull off an upset. Then there’s Matt Damon, an Oscar winner

Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Oscar Isaac stresses that Poe Dameron is not the next Han Solo

Star Wars: The Force Awakens caught a lot of flack for feeling like a retread of A New Hope. Poe Dameron, for example, is a handsome, wisecracking, crack shot pilot in a leather jacket. Sound familiar? Well, Poe Dameron actor Oscar Isaac wants to make clear that he doesn’t think that his character is a second-coming of Han Solo. Chatting with Esquire, the actor describes Rian Johnson’s desire to have Poe Dameron’s character serve the main plot in Star Wars: The Last Jedi:

“Well, there could be [an opening for a Han-like character], but I think what [The Last Jedi director] Rian [Johnson] did was make it less about filling a slot and more about what the story needs. The fact is now that the Resistance has been whittled to just a handful of people, they’re running for their lives, and Leia is grooming me — him — to be a leader of the Resistance, as opposed to a dashing,

Rumored Plot Point For Star Wars: The Last Jedi Claims Palpatine Will Return

We haven’t seen the last of Emperor Palpatine, or so says the latest speculative morsel pertaining to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

With the rumor mill now operating at full tilt – this week alone has seen new theories concerning Supreme Leader Snoke and the great Obi-Wan Kenobi – The Express has compiled yet another report claiming that Star Wars Battlefront II holds the answers to Snoke’s intentions.

EA and Dice’s licensed title, which features a canonical single-player story, reaches its conclusion just as the Inferno Squad scramble to gain hold of Project Resurrection, a fabled initiative that would seed the creation of the First Order. Indeed, Battlefront II will receive new “Resurrection” chapters on December 13th – just in time for the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Exactly what the Dlc will entail is up for question, but The Express is asserting that Project Resurrection is directly
