Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (2007) - News Poster

Little Big Man (Region B)

Arthur Penn’s under-appreciated epic has everything a big-scale western could want — spectacle, interesting characters, good history and a sense of humor. Dustin Hoffman gets to play at least five characters in one as an ancient pioneer relating his career exploits — which are either outrageous tall tales or a concise history of the taking of The West.

Illustration by Mark Summers for Rolling Stone

"You are living in a bubble that comes with an adjoining echo chamber where you and your friends are convinced the American people are not going to elect an idiot for president," he wrote in a pleading messages to Americans,

‘Suicide Squad’s Adam Beach On Why Casting Of Others For Native American Roles Is So Hurtful

Editors’ Note: The casting of non-Native Americans to play Native American characters has its roots in the earliest days of cinema. Though rarer today, it is not unheard of. Adam Beach, who made his breakthrough opposite Nicolas Cage starred in John Woo’s Windtalkers, was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, and more recently was part of the Suicide Squad ensemble, argues in this open letter to the industry that to play the role of a…

HBO Films Redefined the TV Movie — Now It’s Poised to Redefine Itself

694 nominations. 162 wins.

No network has so dominated a category at the Emmy Awards as HBO has TV movies. Its unprecedented run dates back to 1993 with a double win for “Barbarians at the Gate” and “Stalin”; since then, it’s lost just four times.

This year, it has two high-profile contenders — “The Wizard of Lies,” starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” headlined by Oprah Winfrey — as part of the cabler’s overall 111 nominations. Poised to play spoiler are a new iteration of PBS’ “Sherlock” (which won last year) and the “San Junipero” episode of Netflix’s “Black Mirror.”

“If you look at the category, we know there are a lot of things that maybe aren’t necessarily movies,” says HBO Films president Len Amato, a not-so-thinly veiled slight against the stand-alone episode of “Black Mirror.” “But we just continue to play our game.”

Producer Options ‘Soul Catcher’ By ‘Dune’ Author Frank Herbert

Producer Options ‘Soul Catcher’ By ‘Dune’ Author Frank Herbert
Exclusive: Four decades after Dune scribe Frank Herbert published his acclaimed 1972 novel Soul Catcher, the book has been optioned for the big screen by producer Dimitri Villard. The Flight Of he Navigator and Once Bitten producer first pursued the Herbert tome during the 1980s but tabled his film career to run music company ArtistDirect until last year. Now he’s returning to the screen biz with Soul Catcher, about a militant Native American student who kidnaps the 13-year-old white son of a U.S. politician, intending to sacrifice the child for vengeance against wrongs committed against his people. As the captor and the captive flee from hunters across the Pacific Northwest, they form a bond that throws the planned act into question.

The late Herbert’s seminal Dune remains the best-selling science fiction of all time and was adapted into a 1984 feature film by David Lynch and a TV miniseries and sequel in the 2000s.

Emmys 2014: What Should Win Outstanding TV Movie? Take Our Poll!
If history is any indicator, Emmy voters like a little, well, history in their Outstanding TV Movie winners.

The last four champs in the category — 2010’s Temple Grandin, 2009’s Grey Gardens and 2008’s Recount and 2007’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee — all had their roots in real-life characters and situations.

Heck, even in the last three years — when the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences merged Movies and Miniseries into one overarching division — two of the three victors (2012’s Game Change and 2013’s Behind the Candelabra) followed that trend.

Oscars 2014: 10 of the all-time best Academy Awards ceremony moments

From Jack leching over Jennifer to John Wayne's farewell and Brando's no-show, these are just some of the greatest moments at the Oscars ceremonies ever

1. When Jack met Jennifer

This is perhaps my favourite Oscar moment ever, and it is from last year: the 85th Academy Awards in 2013. Tellingly, it does not take place up on stage, in the often tense and frozen ritual of the awards ceremony itself, but happens in the cheerful buzz of the post-show melee backstage. This single, endlessly replayed clip probably did more for Jennifer Lawrence's public profile than anything on the big screen.

Final Trailer & Featurette for Kellan Lutz's 'The Legend of Hercules'

This week we'll see the first film focusing on the mythological Greek hero Hercules with Kellan Lutz taking the lead in The Legend of Hercules (formerly known as Hercules: The Legend Begins). With a January release date and Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin, there isn't much hope for this film that feels like a cheap 300 knock-off, but maybe the Summit Entertainment film has some surprises in store. For anyone who might not be convinced, one final trailer has popped up as a last ditch effort to get audiences into theaters Friday, and if you're interested enough to look behind the scenes, there's a featurette too. Watch!

Second Full Trailer for 'The Legend of Hercules' Starring Kellan Lutz

When the first trailer for The Legend of Hercules starring Kellan Lutz was release, it went by the title Hercules: The Legend Begins. But apparently Summit Entertainment liked the new title better. If it feels like this film is being marketed very quickly, you're right. The first trailer just arrived over a couple weeks ago, and now a second full theatrical trailer is here. The film was picked up for distribution and set for a very early release swiftly, so the film is getting pushed fast and hard before arriving in just under a month. It still looks generic, and we doubt Lutz has the power to make this a success, but that's just January for you.

It’s Not TV: HBO, The Company That Changed Television: An Original Voice

An Original Voice

“We didn’t get mad, we got smart,” HBO CEO Michael Fuchs said about hitting The Wall, looking back at HBO stalling in 1984 from the vantage of the early 1990s. Actually, a lot of the rank and file didn’t get mad or smart; we’d seen 125 of our friends and colleagues get shown the door when the company had suddenly flatlined after eight years of phenomenal growth, and what we got was scared.

But it’s to the credit of HBO’s execs that whatever anxieties they may have had, they showed no panic or even nervousness in public. Instead, they poured any concerns into energetically and immediately addressing the question of, “What do we do now?” The world we knew had changed and there was no going back to the Gold Rush days of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The company required a humongous

NBC Announces Rosemary’s Baby And Tommyknockers Adaptations

NBC is planning to administer a double dose of classic horror, with the news that the network is moving forward with miniseries adaptations of both Roman Polanski’s iconic horror film Rosemary’s Baby and Stephen King’s acclaimed novel The Tommyknockers.

The announcement indicates that NBC has been watching closely as ‘event’ miniseries like CBS’ Under the Dome and FX’s American Horror Story have delivered surprisingly high ratings, and as its own horror series Hannibal has quickly gained a loyal cult following.

NBC president Bob Greenblatt said that the Rosemary’s Baby reboot will in fact be more of a re-imagining of the original Ira Levin novel on which Polanski’s film was based, rather than a direct remake of the film. The miniseries will focus on a young woman and her husband living in Paris and will be an “edge-of-your-seat thriller” comprised of four episodes. Interestingly, the
