Show People (1928)
The faboo Kathy Najimy has joined the cast of Descendants, the Disney Channel’s upcoming movie about the children of the villains from classic animated Disney movies. Najimy will play the Evil Queen. This keeps sounding amazing.
I don’t know how I feel about this. Mark Sheppard will be a series regular in the tenth season of Supernatural. Sheppard is a great actor but I’ve long felt that the Supernatural writers ran out of good stories for Crowley a while ago.
Game of Thrones fansite WinterIsComing.net has descriptions of characters debuting in the fifth season. Watch out for spoilers if you follow the link, obviously. I’m certainly intrigued by the direction this is heading.
Quentin Tarantino says he wants to re-release Django Unchained as a mini-series. It wouldn’t be a remake but the original movie with 90 minutes of additional footage, shown as four one-hour episodes.
"It wouldn't be an endurance test," said Tarantino of the re-edit's mammoth run time. "It would be a mini-series and people love those. You show people a four-hour movie and they roll their eyes. Show people a four-part mini-series and they'll sit and watch it all in one sitting".
Also speaking at Cannes Tarantino has futher renewed interest in making his second western 'The Hateful Eight,' after the script leaked.
"The knife in the back wound is starting to scab," he said of the spat. "I'm in no hurry [to release the film]. Maybe I'll shoot it, maybe I'll publish it, maybe I'll do it on stage.
I'm not even going to tell you what that line is from because if you don't know, you don't belong here!
Today a sweet little box showed up in a plain brown envelope with stamps touting Freedom and Liberty and no other markings to speak of. The box was tied with a golden bow in such a way that you could pull one end and it slips open without a fuss. Who Knows How To Tie Bows Like That??!! Only Satan, I'm sure.
Suffice to say, it's smart to stay on your guard when opening a nondescript box from an unmarked envelope labeled for Dread Central.
Hollywoodchicago.Com: Do you have that specific “I want to be an actor” moment in your memory banks?
Dax Shepard: I never had that “I want to be an actor” instinct when I was growing up. I was into drag racing and thought I was going to be a race car driver. But I was obsessed with movies and certain actors. I loved Nicolas Cage. And I did think, “Wow, if This guy can be an actor,
The Silent Film Festival helped Bo'ness Hippodrome celebrate its centenary in style last night, kicking off a weekend of silent films with King Vidor's comedy Show People.
A cava reception got things off to a refined start, with many of those attending glamming up for the occasion. In addition to several ladies in slinky dresses - including festival director Alison Strauss - there were recognisable characters. Among them was a dapper Charlie Chaplin - although she had a slapstick moment of her own when she forgot...
It doesn't take long for a novelty to be hailed as a trend. Internet film rental service Lovefilm reports that the buzz around The Artist has sparked a boom in curiosity about early cinema, with a 40% rise in the number of people streaming silent films on its site in the week leading up to the Oscars.
The top 10 most-streamed silents include a clutch of Buster Keaton's ingenious comedies, some heady Hollywood melodrama (A Fool There Was, starring Theda Bara, and The Son of the Sheikh, with Rudolph Valentino) and creepy Swedish horror The Phantom Carriage. There are only two films on the list that seem to bear any relation to Michel Hazanavicius's surprise hit: Frank Borzage's mournful romance Seventh Heaven (which inspired the
It isn’t surprising that a producer as knowledgeable as Selznick often ran to the services of the two major champions of “slice of cake” cinema and strong sequences, Hitchcock (Rebecca, Spellbound, Notorious, The Paradine Case) and Vidor (Bird of Paradise, Duel in the Sun, Light’s Diamond Jubilee, even Ruby Gentry), who, without a doubt, made the best films for Selznick.
Love Never Dies, Wild Oranges, Hallelujah, Our Daily Bread, Comrade X, Duel in the Sun, The Fountainhead, Ruby Gentry and their terrific denouements once made me write that Vidor was a director of film endings. No doubt I was exaggerating, but it isn’t for nothing that he hesitated for a long time between several different endings for The Crowd. I was also exaggerating because
Near silent and shot entirely in black and white, The Artist is a captivating and irresistibly romantic vision of old Hollywood. With international and hopefully Oscar success on the horizon, we talk exclusively to the film’s supremely talented costume designer, Mark Bridges.
Seemingly specialising, though perhaps not intentionally, in bringing to life period stories that are culturally defined by their era (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood), Bridges has again expertly recreated another, almost mythical bygone world. Here he explains to Clothes on Film his thought process behind costume design in The Artist, his passion for the silent era and how he managed to get every outfit ready to shoot in just eight weeks.
Jean Dujardin as silent movie star, George Valentin and Bérénice Bejo as up and coming actress,
