This Is The Director Who Sued Her Government For The Chance To Show Her Film In Her Own Country

Wanuri Kahiu isn’t happy with how much trolling and nastiness she’s gotten since her film Rafiki was banned in Kenya because it positively depicted a same-sex relationship. But middle fingers up to the haters: “Days before Rafiki was banned, it was selected for Cannes. Now she has two Hollywood projects on the go: a sci-fi series for Amazon Prime, and a gig directing Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things, in a young adult drama produced by Reese Witherspoon, making her the first African woman t...

10 Best Kyle Chandler Movies

10 Best Kyle Chandler Movies Initially catching the eye of audiences and critics for his leading performance on NBC’s Friday Night Lights, actor Kyle Chandler has since become a rising star in the world of feature film. Acting since the late 80s but not really getting a big break until his casting on the show in 2006, Chandler now exists as one of the go-to actors for dramas (and even the occasional lighthearted performance, strangely enough). Chandler has a sort of southern charm about him,...

‘Triple Frontier’ Review: A Great Cast Scowls and Shoots Their Way Through This Junk Food Action Flick

Triple Frontier had a long, strange journey to the big (and in most cases, small) screen. Back in 2011, Kathryn Bigelow was set to direct, with Tom Hanks starring. By 2015, Bigelow was out, and J.C. Chandor was in. Chandor would spend the next several years with the project, with one big name after another being floated for potential cast members: Johnny Depp, Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum. At one point, the Affleck brothers – Ben and Casey – were being courted to star. But the Afflecks eventually ...

Rolex Had the Best Oscars Commercials with James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Kathryn Bigelow & Alejandro G. Iñárritu

Millions of eyes were on the Academy Awards last night, and even though the live broadcast of Hollywood’s biggest event doesn’t pull in as many viewers as the Super Bowl, it’s still a hot spot for advertising. While there were some TV spots for the likes of Captain Marvel, The Lion King and Rocketman, the one set of commercials that stole the show came from a collaboration between the Oscars and the watchmaker Rolex. Rolex is one of the many sponsors and supporters of the Academy Awards, and th...

"We finally get to use our skills for our own benefit…" "Alright - let's do it." Not to be confused with Triple Threat, a different action film with a very similar name. Netflix has debuted the second official trailer for the action film Triple Frontier, about Special Forces team pulling off a crazy heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America.

There Are More Women Directors Than Ever At Sundance — So Where Are Their Oscar Nominations?

On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 2019 Oscars. And lo and behold, there was not one woman named in the Best Director category. This incredibly depressing turn of events isn’t exactly surprising. Only five women have ever been nominated in the 90 years the ceremony has been held, and only one (Kathryn Bigelow, for The Hurt Locker) has ever won. Still, the news that the Academy was making its biggest push for gender and racial diversity ...

More Female Directors Were Worthy of a Best Director Nod Than Ever, But Got Shut Out of the Oscars

You can count on one hand the number of female directors who have been nominated for a Best Director Oscar in the award’s 90-year history. You can count on one finger the number of female directors who have won the Best Director prize. But despite their meager showing at awards ceremonies, female directors are thriving in the independent and film festival circuit, with films like Lynne Ramsay‘s lean thriller You Were Never Really Here winning the Cannes screenplay prize or Debra Granik‘s quietl...

Mary Poppins’ penguins are from Pasadena

They may be frolicking in London on film, but the penguins in “Mary Poppins Returns” are actually from Pasadena – as is the horse and carriage and the antique china bowl. They were created by Duncan Studio, which did the animation for the Rob Marshall-directed Disney movie. “The technique that we used was hand drawn on paper, which I think very few people still do that,” Duncan Studio owner Ken Duncan said. “People still do hand-drawn, but it’s on computer.” The horse and carriage in “Mary P...

Annapurna Pictures May Be In Trouble; Founder Megan Ellison is “Reevaluating” Its Film Division

When Annapurna Pictures launched in 2011, it looked like it might be the savior of auteur-driven filmmaking. Founder Megan Ellison, the daughter of billionaire Larry Ellison, used her considerable fortune to immediately begin funding visionary auteur filmmakers who often had trouble finding financing in a blockbuster-heavy movie landscape, which resulted in some of the best movies of the past few years. But things at Annapurna Pictures may be more dire than expected, and a new report says Ellis...

Even in 2018, Filmgoers Are in the Thrall of Vampires

Why are people so obsessed with vampires? The mythical creatures have been gracing our screens since the dawn of cinema, with 1922’s  Nosferatu setting a gold standard. Much like vampires themselves, their film depictions don’t seem to have an expiration. When you think of vampires, you probably think of horror, but the beauty of these immortal beings is they can be placed within any genre. They started out as horror characters, and while there will always be a scary aspect to them (thei...

Top 10 Action Movies Of The Past Decade

Top 10 action movies of the past decade If actions speak louder than words, then maybe action films are the masterpieces we need. Action films can inspire us to get moving and solve our problems—then save something. Why do we love watching people to impossible tasks when we relax? Today, most action films are blockbusters, high budget, and filled with big names. Technology has reached a point where we’ll never be able to reenact the stunts, car chases, and explosions we see on a regular basis...

‘Kin’ Directors on Expanding Their Short Film and Making Personal Science Fiction [Interview]

Kin is a crime drama about two brothers on the run from a dangerous man, an intimate story of how family transcends blood. But there’s also a sci-fi gun in the mix. Summing up the feature debut of directors Jonathan Baker and Josh Baker is a bit tough. It’s a science fiction movie where the genre elements sit at a distance, a movie featuring a powerful (Alien? Experimental? From the future?) laser gun that isn’t actually about the laser gun. It’s just something one of those brothers happened to...
