No one provided Sandy Powell with a set of rules when she took on the job of designing the costumes for Walt Disney Studios' live action version of "Cinderella." No one told the three-time Oscar winner that Cinderella's dress had to be blue. No one said the film's showstopper needed to resemble the iconic ball gown depicted in Disney's animated classic. In fact, even after watching the 55-year-old film Powell specifically intended to make it another color.
"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" was a surprise hit three years ago and earned a legion of fans around the world. The ensemble drama about a group of British senior citizens taking up residence in an Indian hotel was missing one key moment, however. Oscar winners Judi Dench and Maggie Smith barely had a scene together. Ol Parker, who wrote both "Exotic" and the sequel "Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," takes complete responsibility.
Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury and Audience Award winner "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is heading to theaters slightly earlier than expected. Fox Searchlight originally announced "Earl" would open in limited release on July 1. Now, the studio has reconsidered and the acclaimed dramedy will debut in limited release on June 12.
Today is a sad day in the world of Independent Cinema. Richard Glatzer, the co-director and screenwriter of “Still Alice,” has passed away after a four-year battle with ALS.
Many Americans are unaware of the story of Newton Knight, but that will likely change after the release of "The Free State of Jones" next year.
If one Woody Allen movie is in post-production that means another is about to begin filming. The four-time Oscar winner already has "Irrational Man" scheduled to open on July 24 and now some big names are reuniting for his 2016 release.
Is Oscar's 3-year-nightmare finally over? On Saturday night, producer Craig Zadan tweeted an intriguing request that suggested both he and his producing partner Neil Meron would not return to produce a fourth Academy Awards telecast.
If you're heading to the multiplex this weekend there's a good chance that you'll be catching a movie starring Dev Patel. It's a rare occurrence for any actor, but the "Slumdog Millionaire" breakout has the fortune of having two different films open in the U.S. today.
Awards season has transformed into pretty much a 12 month a year event (outside of maybe a few weeks in June) which means there is news to report about some of the more anticipated prestige players of 2015.
The awards world was hit with a bombshell on Tuesday afternoon after news broke that a "significant faction" of the Academy wants the Best Picture field returned to just five nominees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the old guard feels the current system has made the honor less prestigious and are using the low ratings of last month's telecast as proof that the expanded field doesn't work. The issue may be addressed as soon as the next Board of Governors meeting on March 24. Let me take a breath and prepare my reaction while you ponder this Hail Mary of a justification for a moment.
