The Other Side of the Wind,” Orson Welles’ final unfinished film, is finally approaching completion. According to Welles fan site Wellesnet, a cut of the film screened for a select group of Hollywood elite Tuesday in Santa Monica, 42 years after principal photography finished. An attendee at the screening described it as more than a rough cut, but not a final product. Filmmakers in attendance at the screening included Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Peter Bogdanovich, and Rian Johnson.

Last year, Netflix announced it was acquiring the movie and funding its completion, which has been overseen by producers Frank Marshall and Filip Jan Rymsza. Bogdanovich, who was charged by Welles with finishing the film in the event of his death, is an executive producer.

'From Dusk Till Dawn': THR's 1996 Review

On Jan. 19, 1996, Dimension Films unveiled the R-rated, Robert Rodriguez-helmed From Dusk Till Dawn in theaters nationwide. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below: 

As he hops from the ER to the abattoir, George Clooney is the best reason to submit yourself to From Dusk Till Dawn, an exceedingly grotesque thriller-horror-comedy that fails to live up to the promise of its opening reels. 

With no competition to speak of, the Dimension Films release should enjoy a dynamite opening weekend and keep the momentum going for a few more rounds. 

Written by Quentin Tarantino, who also co-stars, the film starts...

5 Burning Questions About Sundance 2018

5 Burning Questions About Sundance 2018
As Sundance 2018 kicks into high gear, it comes at a pivotal time for the movie industry. Independent films, for the most part, aren’t the box office darlings they used to be. Only a small handful of titles are able to break through at the box office each year (like “The Big Sick” or “Lady Bird”). There’s also a cultural shift taking place for women in Hollywood, following the public exposure of men like Harvey Weinstein, who allegedly sexually harassed and assaulted dozens.

Sundance has always celebrated diverse voices, and the 2018 edition of the festival is no different. This year, 38% of movies here are directed by women and 32% of movies are from non-white directors. Here are the five biggest questions facing studios and filmmakers as the festival launches.

1. Will Amazon and Netflix Continue to Dominate the Market?

The past two Sundances have been tales of two streaming giants. Flush with cash, Amazon and Netflix

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Play a Washed-Up Actor in Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Movie, Which Might Cast Tom Cruise Next

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Play a Washed-Up Actor in Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Movie, Which Might Cast Tom Cruise Next
Here’s something you might not have noticed: Leonardo DiCaprio hasn’t starred in a movie since he won an Academy Award for his performance in “The Revenant.” That makes his casting in Quentin Tarantino’s next film doubly significant, as the actor’s choosiness brings even more attention to his projects. Mike Fleming Jr., writing for Deadline, has some details on said projects — namely that DiCaprio will be playing an actor whose heyday has long since passed and that the movie is a “‘Pulp Fiction’–esque tapestry of Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders.”

Leonardo DiCaprio's Character Revealed in Tarantino's Next Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio's Character Revealed in Tarantino's Next Movie
It was announced last week that Leonardo DiCaprio is officially attached to Quentin Tarantino's Manson era Movie, which takes place in 1969. DiCaprio had been rumored to be in talks for months, and now that it's official. We finally know what part he'll be playing in the project. Months ago, an actor who reportedly read for a part in the movie revealed some of the plot details, which mentioned a washed-up TV star and his stuntman sidekick trying to make it into Hollywood movies.

The initial report was, for the most part, correct and it has now been revealed that Leonardo DiCaprio will be playing the aforementioned former TV star. Deadline reports that DiCaprio plays an aging actor who had his own Western TV show that aired from 1958 to 1963. Leonardo DiCaprio's character will be shown at the height of the hippy movement in 1969 trying to get a Western career going again.

Here’s Who Leonardo DiCaprio Will Play in Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film

Much anticipation surrounds the next film from Quentin Tarantino, for a number of reasons. For one, if Tarantino sticks to his plan to retire after 10 films, this is his penultimate effort. For another, the story takes place in 1969 and in some way involves the Manson Murders. But maybe most intriguingly, the casting on this untitled film is really interesting. Margot Robbie has an offer to play Sharon Tate but a deal hasn’t yet closed—it's possible filming may conflict with her contractually obligated Suicide Squad 2, which Warner Bros. hopes to get in front of cameras …

'Hit-Girl' Covers "Glamour"

Sneak Peek images of actress Chloë Grace Moretz aka 'Hit-Girl' from the "Kick-Ass" movie series, in "Glamour" magazine:

"The way I look at it is, I’m trying to start conversations," said Moretz. "You might not agree with my opinions, and that’s great—I would love to talk about it."

"With movies like 'Kick-Ass', 'Carrie' and 'Let Me In', I was able to push boundaries at a really young age. Now that I’m able to get projects funded, curate scripts, and make movies, it means a lot to me to go against gender norms. My biggest thing now is making gender-equalizing movies, where you can put a male actor or a female actor in that role, and it would work the same way.

"The word 'feminism' meant something very different when I was 13. I had four older brothers and a single mom,
