Guillermo del Toro Praises ‘Lady Bird,’ ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, and Ranks His Films in Lively Reddit Ama
As devoted a cinephile as he is a visionary filmmaker, Guillermo del Toro will take every opportunity to lavish praise on his favorite films. In a recent Reddit Ama (“Ask me Anything”) to promote “The Shape of Water,” the director could hardly contain his enthusiasm for Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird,” which he said “moved [him] deeply.” He continued: “‘Lady Bird’ is a fantastic first film. Such intelligence and acute eye for drama and cinema. Deceivingly natural, full of style.”

More in line with his style, Del Toro is a huge fan of George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which he called, “A masterpiece. In many ways, So kinetic, so dense, as to be digested slowly and in repeated viewings. A God at work.” He also loved Pixar’s “Coco, which was co-directed by Mexican-American filmmaker Adrian Molina. “The More World-themed stories, the better for all us storytellers,” said del Toro.

Record Opener ‘Disaster Artist’ and ‘The Shape of Water’ Lead Specialty Box Office Surge
The hits keep on coming. Both “The Disaster Artist” (A24) and “The Shape of Water” (Fox Searchlight) opened strong, despite the usual strong-fall off in post-Thanksgiving audiences. Last year the month of November saw only one specialized release, “Manchester By the Sea,” pull an opening platform per theater average over $60,000. This year has already seen five.

The Disaster Artist” (in 11 markets) showed the best performance in New York/Los Angeles of any title this year (nearly $120,000 per theater), besting last weekend’s numbers for “Call Me By Your Name” (Sony Pictures Classics). They join other Oscar-bound strong openers including “Lady Bird” (A24) and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (Fox Searchlight).

This marks unprecedented strength over such a short period, with “Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards” already performing well in wider release. At some point exhibitors are going to be challenged to handle so many hits (all will not go wide

Anne Thompson’s Top 12 Films of 2017, Including Five Directed By Women
Track my film passions of the past year and the result is this list. These are the films that wowed and moved me, that turned me into a rabid champion, that gave me hope that brilliant cinematic storytelling — and a rebel spirit — is alive and well. It turned out to be a strong year for women directors (five), romances (three), World War II dramas (two), Angelina Jolie movies (two), animation (one), and documentaries (one).

‘Black Mirror: Hang the DJ’ Trailer Introduces A Very Special Kind of Dating App — Watch

‘Black Mirror: Hang the DJ’ Trailer Introduces A Very Special Kind of Dating App — Watch
Black Mirror” has always been a show interested in romance, but in “Hang the DJ,” one of the upcoming installments of the anthology series’ fourth season, the search for true love is front and center.

Starring Georgina Campbell (“Flowers,” “Broadchurch”), Joe Cole (“Peaky Blinders,” “Green Room”), and George Blagden (“Versailles,” “Vikings”), “Hang the DJ” focuses on, according to Netflix, “an advanced dating system, that maps out a series of relationships for you in advance.” That might sound like a souped-up version of Bumble, but as always with “Black Mirror,” there’s far more to the story.

Tim Van Patten, whose resume includes “The Sopranos” and “Game of Thrones,” directed the episode, making it one of the few episodes of the series to be directed by an American. Series creator Charlie Brooker, like with many “Black Mirror” episodes, wrote the script.

New Justice League Character Portraits Highlight The Heroes’ Alter Egos

Now that Justice League‘s theatrical release is merely days away, it’s only expected that we wake up to find new goodies greeting us each morning throughout the week. Heck, we already learned a little more about J.K. Simmons’ debuting Commissioner Gordon just this morning.

So, aside from the usual quotes offered by the cast, we’ve found that there’s also no shortage of promotional photos to be glimpsed. Truth be told, this is the norm for blockbusters of this magnitude, but there’s something even more special about the whole experience when you consider this is the first time that DC’s premier superhero team will be coming together for a live action cinematic adventure. Suffice it to say, whether you grew up on the Super Friends or the Justice League/Justice League Unlimited animated series, this is probably a flick you’ve been waiting your entire life for.

38 women accuse James Toback of sexual harassment by Jennie Kermode - 2017-10-23 13:37:33

James Toback Photo: Bobak Ha'Eri

James Toback, director of Tyson and Black And White, has been accused of sexual harassment by 38 women, according to an article in yesterday's Los Angeles Times. The claims are remarkably similar in nature and allege that the director approached women in New York, persuaded them to accompany him to secluded places for auditions, then asked them explicit sexual questions and proceeded to masturbate in front of them.

Toback, 72, denies all the claims, saying that he doesn't remember meeting any of the women. He asserted that health issues would have made it impossible for him to behave as described.

Toback was proud of his flirtatiousness and titled a film based on his own life The Pick-Up Artist. He also directed 2013 documentary Seduced And Abandoned, which sets out to expose the way films are made and is rife with casual sexism, including a deeply uncomfortable...

Shakespeare didn’t invent Orson Welles but he did define him; it can be said that if any one director took arms against the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, it was the man behind Citizen Kane, Touch of Evil and Chimes at Midnight. The 1952 production of Othello is exhibit A.

Filmed over a turbulent three year period in and around Morocco, Venice and Rome, Welles was bedeviled by an ever-changing cast and crew resulting in reshoots by five different cinematographers and assembled by four different editors. The sound recording was a joke.

Tom Hardy Just Gets Better With Age
Roles in Inception and The Dark Knight Rises may have sent his career into overdrive, but fans have been devoted to British actor Tom Hardy for much longer than that. Many have been watching him since that first menacing turn in Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002 (he's the only actor to have played both a Batman and a Star Trek villain). The hot dad then spent years balancing indie films and period dramas before he conquered Hollywood. A few early adopters may have been in love with him for over a decade, but we've been trying to pinpoint the exact moment the world really sat up and paid attention . . . and we've settled on 2009. Why? If you've not seen him in Wuthering Heights with his wife, Charlotte Riley, do yourself a favor and hunt it down. And take a look at our photo chronology for more proof that was the year when everything changed for him!

Film Class: Using Colour

In this instalment of Flickering Myth’s Film Class, Tom Jolliffe looks at intentional use of colours in film…

When it was discovered that film stock could have colour painted onto it, though painstaking and meticulous, it opened up a new dimension in cinema, previously locked into black, white and grey. It allowed a film-maker to create a world that wasn’t so much a clearer representation of our own, but something, at times that relayed certain emotions. It may have been in the case of something like The Wizard Of Oz for example, that those very strong primary and secondary colour palettes, bright and vibrant which were a complete antithesis to the “reality” of the black and white depiction of Kansas, were deliberately heavy in contrast and saturation. Deep colours that were more fantasy than reality. More metaphorical than literal. They had a certain reality for Oz, but furthermore,
