"Forrest Gump" famously inserted Tom Hanks into old archival footage, interweaving moments from real U.S. history with the fictional story of his character: A simple yet sincere man, sharing homespun wisdom on a park bench to different strangers while recounting the story of his ever-so-charmed life.Director Robert Zemeckis and ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) employed digital compositing and other groundbreaking visual effects to give Forrest's tale a true-to-life veneer.

But there’s ...

‘Respect’ is the biopic that Aretha Franklin wanted

Aretha Franklin spent decades pushing to get a big screen biopic of her life made—she wanted something on the scale of “Ray” and she wanted a star like Halle Berry or Audra McDonald to play her before settling on Jennifer Hudson as the ideal choice in the years before her death in 2018. Now that dream is finally coming true with “Respect” — Hudson is in the lead role, Forest Whitaker is her domineering father, the preacher C.L. Franklin, Marlon Wayans is her seductive but domineering husband, Te...
