Hollywood Flashback: Before 'Pirates,' Paul McCartney Starred in a "Dumb" Film Dud

2 hours ago

It has been more than three decades since Paul McCartney, who has a small part in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (May 26), appeared in a feature film.

The last time was in 1984 when the former Beatle, then 42, wrote, produced, scored and played himself in Give My Regards to Broad Street. The musical drama, however, was not well-received. Phrases such as "congenial but dumb" and "a home movie on an amazing scale" were used almost everywhere — except in The Hollywood Reporter.

THR really liked Broad Street, describing it as "a fanciful musical »

Young Actresses Fake Being Deaf to Audition for Todd Haynes Film

4 hours ago

To cast the role of young, deaf Rose in Cannes competition film Wonderstruck, which received a long standing ovation after its May 18 premiere, director Todd Haynes conducted a nationwide search before finding the revelatory Millicent Simmonds, 14, from Utah.

But Haynes was surprised — and nearly duped — when sifting through the 100 or so tapes that were submitted, all by those whom he thought were deaf girls: "We even got a few girls who later admitted that they weren't deaf. It was pretty intense. It was a little bit of a shock." Wonderstruck's other young star, Oakes Fegley, »

On June 28, 2003, Anaheim's Disneyland closed its doors to the public to host its first red carpet premiere at the park — an event that cost about $2 million.

The action-adventure movie broke multiple records at the box office following its star-studded premiere. It opened to $13.5 million in 3,269 theaters, marking the best Wednesday opening of 2003, surpassing Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines' »

Cannes: IFC Films Picks Up Lars von Trier's Serial Killer Drama 'The House That Jack Built'

4 hours ago

IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to Lars von Trier's serial killer drama The House That Jack Built.

It marks the second teaming of IFC and the controversial helmer, after the specialty label released von Trier's Antichrist.

Set in the U.S. in the 1970s, the film follows the titular protagonist (Matt Dillon) from his point of view through five murders. Jack views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. Despite the fact that the final and inevitable police intervention is drawing ever near, which both provokes and puts pressure »

4 hours ago

Baywatch — starring man-of-the-moment Dwayne Johnson alongside Zac Efron — swam out of the gate with $1.3 million in Wednesday night previews at the North American box office.

In a bold and risky move, Paramount and Skydance decided to make the film adaptation of the classic television show R-rated, with as many F-bombs as bikinis.

Baywatch got a jump on the long Memorial Day weekend by opening a day early and is projected to gross in the $40 million range for the five days, although Paramount is being more conservative in suggesting the low $30 million »

'Star Wars' Head-Banging Stormtrooper Explains the Classic Blunder

6 hours ago

It is one of the most famous mistakes in the Star Wars film franchise: the head-banging Stormtrooper in A New Hope

It might be missed in the first few viewings of the 1977 classic, but once it is noticed, it can never be unseen. As a group of Stormtroopers walk into a control room, one of them unceremoniously bangs his head on the door ceiling. 

Now, as the film that started the worldwide space adventure phenomenon turns 40, Heat Vision tracked down the U.K.-based actor who says he was the clumsy Stormtrooper. Laurie Goode, who was 31 during production, explains just what happened that »

Hollywood's Next Big Thing: 'Baywatch's' Kelly Rohrbach Takes on Pamela Anderson's Iconic Role

6 hours ago

Baywatch]," says Kelly Rohrbach, who was just 12 years old when the iconic lifeguard show ended its 12-year run. "We thought it was too racy."

Now Rohrbach will be donning that red swimsuit ("I still have a one-piece tan from it. My stomach is so white — occupational hazard") as she resurrects Pamela Anderson's slow-running C.J. Parker — a turn that would intimidate almost anyone. But Rohrbach, who stars with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in Paramount's raunchy reboot (May 25), »

GLAAD Gives Disney, Sony, Lionsgate Failing Grades for Lgbtq Representation

7 hours ago

The independently produced Moonlight may have made history by becoming the first film built around a gay character to win the best picture Oscar, but when it comes to fair and accurate depictions of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer people on the big screen, the majority of Hollywood’s 2016 studio releases simply ignored such characters.

In its annual report card released Thursday, officially known as the GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index, the media-monitoring organization studied 125 films released last year by the major studios. It gave Disney, Sony and Lionsgate failing grades; Fox, Paramount and Warner Bros. rated as »

'Star Wars': Unsung Heroes Finally Share Their Stories

7 hours ago

Forty years ago, Star Wars revolutionized cinema when it was released on May 25, 1977.

It's a revolution that was only possible thanks to the work of hundreds of people who toiled to make George Lucas' groundbreaking vision a reality.

They may not have wielded lightsabers on the big screen or be household names; they are Star Wars unsung heroes. Heat Vision spoke with eight of those members of the Star Wars family, who are finally sharing stories that you likely haven't heard before from the set of Episode IV.

Fox executives thought it was "the world's greatest piece of shit."

‘Pure Hearts’ (‘Cuori Puri’): Film Review | Cannes 2017

8 hours ago

A 17-year-old girl whose devout mother wants her to swear off sex before marriage meets a handsome stranger in Pure Hearts (Cuori Puri), the debut feature from Italian filmmaker Roberto De Paolis. Mining tensions as varied as the rise of evangelical fervor in economically depressed modern Italy and the country's relationship to its itinerant gypsy population, this delicately handled romance never comes off as didactic, chiefly by keeping its focus firmly on its two appealing leads, played by newcomers Selene Caramazza and Simone Liberati. Festival play should be long after the film's Directors' Fortnight premiere, though its modest scale and »

'12 Days' ('12 Jours'): Film Review | Cannes 2017

After touring the Gallic countryside for his recent documentaries France, Journal de France and Modern Life, photographer-director Raymond Depardon returns to the institutional interiors of some of his most famous works in 12 Days (12 Jours), a film set inside the psychiatric ward of a hospital in Lyon.

A cross between Depardon's movies Delits flagrants and The 10th Judicial Court: Judicial Hearings, which focused on French criminal law, and his 1988 film Urgences, which was also set in a psychiatric ward, this fascinating study of human behavior chronicles a legal procedure in which individuals committed by force must appear before a »

'The Merciless' ('Bulhandang'): Film Review | Cannes 2017

10 hours ago

This has been a bumper Cannes festival for South Korean cinema, with five features playing across the official selection, two in the genre-friendly Midnight Screenings slot that helped springboard Yeon Sang-Ho's zombie apocalypse thriller Train To Busan to commercial and critical success last year. One of this year's late-night premieres, The Merciless is a superior slice of hardboiled pulp fiction in the blossoming "Korean Noir" style.

Byun Sung-Hyun's violent underworld saga brings little new to the genre, but its reliable cast, slick visuals and testosterone-drenched mood should draw a readymade global audience of Asian action fanboys. Launched in domestic theaters »
