'Dunkirk,' 'The Post' Editors on Making the Right Cuts to "Keep Up the Tension"

1 hour ago

Dunkirk, which allows moviegoers to experience the critical World War II event simultaneously on the beach, in the air and at sea. "The story had to be separated and crosscut in such a way that the audience could stay with you on these three parallel storylines — and where the timelines meet about two-thirds of the way through the film," says editor Lee Smith, adding that it was "trial and »

'Driving Miss Daisy': THR's 1989 Review

2 hours ago

On Dec. 13, 1989, Warner Bros. debuted Driving Miss Daisy in theaters nationwide. The acclaimed film went on to nab four honors at the 62nd Academy Awards, including best actress for Jessica Tandy and best picture. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below: 

Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy, two actors with considerable resources — and considerable idiosyncrasies as well — purr along in this tandem vehicle with enthusiastic ease. Adapted from his own Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Alfred Uhry's comedy-drama hints at revelations of character more often than it actually provides them.

While Bruce Beresford's careful, respectful direction ensures a suitably opened-up »

Latest 'Annihilation' Trailer Reveals New Monsters, More Plot

2 hours ago

When battling a shark-alligator, you want Natalie Portman on your side.

In the latest trailer for the sci-fi feature Annihilation, Portman plays a biologist that leads an all-female team into Area X, an unexplainable land filled with biological anomalies that may or may not want to overtake humanity.

In the trailer, the task force — consisting of characters played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Tuva Novotny — is seen passing through the mysterious shimmering wall of Area X and encountering peculiar (and possibly lethal) plants and animals.

How 'Baby Driver' Struck the "Right Balance" of Sounds to Create Car-Chase Drama

2 hours ago

Sound editing and sound mixing are two separate categories in the Oscar race, but many laypeople would quickly admit that they don't exactly know the difference. "I understand how some people would be confused by the two as the lines can be very hard to distinguish," admits Julian Slater, who served as supervising sound editor, designer and rerecording mixer on Baby Driver. Sound pros often reach for metaphors, such as cooking, to explain the difference: Sound editing could be likened to preparing the ingredients, and mixing is when everything comes together to prepare the dish.

Funny or Die Releases Faux 'Star Wars' Indie

4 hours ago

If there was ever an indie film about the Star Wars universe, this very well might be what it looks like.

With the release of The Last Jedi just days away, Funny or Die posted an almost three-minute trailer looking at a forbidden galactic love. 

Storm: A Star Wars Indie tells the emotional (hilarious) story of one Stormtrooper, Ian, whose heart just wasn't in his duties for the Empire because it belonged to another. 

Only after he meets an alien named Teedo does Ian realize what he is missing out on in life. Of course, his ailing father, also once a Stromtrooper, is dead »

'Star Wars': Richard Pryor Once Bartended at the Mos Eisley Cantina

4 hours ago

The skit is as glorious as it is bizarre and random. 

The late, legendary actor Richard Pryor once bartended at the Mos Eisley Cantina — or at least he pretended to for laughs. 

In a lost clip from the short-lived Richard Pryor Show, the iconic stand-up slings drinks in a seedy space bar meant to resemble the classic watering hole from 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope

There are numerous laugh-out-loud moments as Pryor talks sports with some aliens, tells others to get a room, eyeballs a view and finally gets into a fight with a customer. And yes, Pryor does »

SAG Awards: What the Noms Do (and Don't) Tell Us About the Oscar Race

4 hours ago

If you've ever sat through — or, in my case, moderated — a post-screening Q&A for members of SAG-aftra, the world's largest union of actors, then you've quickly learned not to be surprised by anything that happens there. There are a lot of eccentric characters within this body of 160,000 film, television and radio performers, so it's no surprise that a subset of 2,500 of them, randomly selected to serve on a nominating committee for the SAG Awards, might march to its own beat as well. Add to that the fact that this year's nom-com began voting almost a full »

Oscars: Daniel Day-Lewis and Why Retirement Doesn't Always Equal a Nom

5 hours ago

Forget the gold watch. Why not just give the man an Oscar? That's the question confronting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as they decide whether to reward Daniel Day-Lewis for his latest performance — as Reynolds Woodcock, a fastidious, 1950s London fashion designer who's drawn into a complicated battle of wills with a young woman, played by Vicky Krieps, in Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread.

That's because, in a surprise announcement made in June, a rep for the 60-year-old actor said that his latest performance also will be his final one, that he's retiring from »

Original 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Script Called for a "Ridiculous Amount of Sets"

6 hours ago

Everything is magnified when you’re working on one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Just ask Star Wars: The Last Jedi's production designer Rick Heinrichs.

According to him, writer-director Rian Johnson's script was so ambitious that it had double the number of sets you might expect on a film like this.

"The original script had about 160 sets in it, a ridiculous amount of sets. I didn’t say that to Rian, because I figured on something this big he’ll find that out on his own. It’s a 100-day shooting schedule," says Heinrichs. "So there’s more than one set a »

War Over 'The Conjuring': The Disturbing Claims Behind a Billion-Dollar Franchise

6 hours ago

Fans of The Conjuring horror movie franchise will be familiar with the romantic tale of Ed and Lorraine Warren, real-life married demonologists who claimed their Catholic faith helped them fend off the forces of evil. In the trailer for the first film, Warner Bros.' New Line division sold The Conjuring as "based on the true story of the Warrens," but according to legal filings and recordings obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, it's possible that even the simple depiction of the Warrens as a devoted and pious couple might have stretched the truth past the breaking point.

CineAsia: India’s Multiplex Pioneer Ajay Bijli Talks Cinema Growth, Digital Threats

11 hours ago

As the chairman and managing director of India’s largest cinema chain, PVR Cinemas, Ajay Bijli has been a trailblazer credited with revolutionizing the country’s exhibition industry.

Back in 1997, Bijli opened the country’s first multiplex in the capital New Delhi at a time when single-screen cinemas were struggling against rampant video piracy.

New Delhi-headquartered PVR was launched as a joint venture in 1995 between Bijli’s Priya Exhibitors and Australia's Village Roadshow, which exited the venture in 2002. The move signaled a diversification for Bijli, 50, who comes from a business family that runs a trucking company.
