Costume Designer Lynn Falconer Discusses Creating the Perfect 60’s La Look for “Ouija: Origin of Evil”

Costume designer Lynn Falconer has many credits under her fashionable brown leather belt, having worked on such movies as Oculus, Straw Dogs, Before I Wake, The Alphabet Killer and Silent House. Lynn’s latest film, currently still in theaters, Ouija: Origin of Evil presented a new challenge though, as she was given the task of recreating the style of characters living in Los Angeles in 1967. To do this as authentically as possible, while adding her own flare, she visited numerous costume houses, estate sales and flea markets choosing to go down the more classic avenue rather than florals, which didn’t fit the dark vibe of the film. She also drew on inspiration from her own childhood, picking pieces she wore during that time. We spoke...

Newswire: Kate Bosworth to star as Sharon Tate in new biopic

  • The AV Club
Although she was one of the most famous women in the world in the mid-’60s, today Sharon Tate is best remembered for her murder—and that of her unborn child—at the hands of the Manson Family on August 9, 1969. But there’s more to Tate’s life than her death, a point that Kate Bosworth is hoping to make in an upcoming biopic about the fallen star.

The as-yet0untitled film, described as a “look at Tate’s career, marriage and other relationships she had in Hollywood,” was announced earlier this afternoon. It’s based on a book called Sharon Tate And The Manson Murders, although producer Nick Phillips, who worked with Bosworth on the 2011 remake of Straw Dogs, says that the murders won’t be the main focus of the film. “There has been so much said and written about all of the other players in ...

L. Gustavo Cooper’s Acclaimed Short Film The Home Now Making the Jump To Feature

L. Gustavo Cooper, director of The Devil Incarnate and most recently June, has been doing a hell of a job making even more of a name for himself with his festival acclaimed short film, The Home. The short, co-written by Cooper and Resolution star Peter Cilella, followed a young woman (played by, in my opinion, one of the most promising actresses around these days, Starry Eyes lead Alex Essoe) who after giving birth was placed in a home for unwed mothers. Where the short went from there, I’ll leave to your imagination, but along with Nikhil Bhagat’s As They Continue To Fall, The Home is one of my favorite shorts I’ve seen in quite a while. Essoe’s acting is solid, the writing is imaginative and unique and Cooper’s eye for detail is just one more reason to be watching out for the filmmaker, the guy’s got chops.

Actor Woods Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit Targets Twitter Users: Slander Case or Attack on Freedom of Speech Online?

James Woods in 'Videodrome.' James Woods in $10 million Twitter lawsuit feud: Crassly vocal right-wing actor goes after two crassly vocal users who attacked him In a letter dated Aug. 21, '15, Twitter attorney Ryan Mrazik ridiculed Surf's Up and Scary Movie 2 actor James Woods, while also highlighting the potentially dangerous precedent of a $10 million lawsuit the 68-year-old entertainer filed against a Twitter user last July.

Even with the Super Bowl monopolizing attention on Sunday, Sniper should still easily add at least $30 million over the three-day period.Among the weekend's new releases, found footage time travel movie Project Almanac should provide decent counterprogramming for teen moviegoers, while Black or White and The Loft will be lucky to earn a combined $10 million.Through 13 days in wide release, American Sniper has already earned $213.4 million. This weekend, it expands to an additional 180 locations, which brings its total count to 3,885; that's a new record for an R-rated movie, ahead of the record that Sniper set last weekend.On fantastic word-of-mouth, the movie dropped a very light 28 percent last weekend. With tough competition from the Super Bowl on Sunday, a similar drop this weekend is out of the question. Still,
