        ‘The Great Hack’ Terrified Sundance Audiences, and Then the Documentary Got Even Scarier

        Plenty of Sundance movies get a few tweaks after the festival. However, Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim’s Cambridge Analytica documentary “The Great Hack” saw a whole new level of adjustment after its 2019 premiere as a work in progress, including the introduction of protagonist Brittany Kaiser — a fascinating, moody woman with a sad poker face whose true values and beliefs even she does not appear to know.

        “We didn’t know the degree that things would happen,” said Amer. “Every time you think you know the full story, there was a little more of the Mueller investigation. She’d forget to tell us she met with Julian Assange, or went to a Russian intelligence meeting.”

        Few filmmakers are comfortable with turning their movies inside out, but Amer and Noujaim are used to collaborating with the news cycle. Noujaim first knew Amer as an activist; they met while she was filming

        ‘The Red Sea Diving Resort’: Gideon Raff’s Career Sinks In This Dull, Exploitative True Story [Review]

        If the silver screen has one true love, it’s the transformation of tough real-life events into entertaining escapades. Sometimes, it works well. Films like “Argo” treat their source material respectfully, taking distressing true stories and making thoughtful, digestible features from them. As authentic characters place themselves in peril, narrowly dodging one life-threatening jam after another, audiences watch aghast, wondering, “Would we be as courageous?”

        Other times, it doesn’t work at all.

        ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Director David Leitch Reveals An Alternate Opening & How He Landed That Scene Stealing Cameo [The Fourth Wall]

        Welcome to the Episode 3 of The Fourth Wall – an interview podcast where I attempt to break down the fourth wall of the film industry, getting a behind the scenes look through my conversations with filmmakers, actors/actresses, and other industry professionals. My guest today is “Hobbs & Shaw” director David Leitch.

        Leitch has been the stunt double for Brad Pitt and Jean-Claude Van Damm, and his stunt credits span across a multitude of films including “The Matrix” trilogy and “V for Vendetta.” He was a co-director on 2014’s “John Wick” and the man behind films such as “Atomic Blonde” and “Deadpool 2.” Taking his action sensibilities to the “Fast & Furious” franchise, “Hobbs & Shaw” offers some of the most heightened, yet practical set pieces the series has seen thus far.

        Capturing Social Change through Clothing: Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood Costume Designer Arianne Phillips on Dressing Quentin Tarantino’s Latest

        Hawaiian shirts. Leather jackets. Go-go boots. These are just a few of the costume staples that leave a defining visual mark on Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s latest film in which real history is viewed through a fictionalized lens. We are in 1969, a year of change — both in Hollywood and the U.S. Think the start of the Nixon presidency, the eroding of the studio system before the artistically adventurous New Hollywood came to the rescue and yes, the Manson Family murders that claimed five lives, including that of a very pregnant Sharon Tate, actress […]

        ‘Iron Man 3’ Writer Praises McU for Waiting to Introduce Real Mandarin in ‘Shang-Chi’

        Marvel announced at Comic-Con it was officially setting “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” for Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The reveal included an exciting casting note: Tony Leung, the legendary Hong Kong actor famous for appearing in Wong Kar-wai films such as “In the Mood for Love” and “Happy Together,” is starring in the tentpole as the villainous Mandarin. The casting allows the McU to introduce the real Mandarin after providing a fake out in “Iron Man 3,” which cast Ben Kingsley as the character but included a twist that revealed he was just an actor posing as the real Mandarin.

        In a new interview with CinemaBlend to promote “Hobbs & Shaw,” screenwriter Drew Pearce said he’s excited the real Mandarin will properly debut in the McU thanks to “Shang-Chi.” Pearce also wrote the Marvel short film “All Hail the King,” which centered on Kingsley’s sham Mandarin in prison.

        One Scene From The Animated ‘Lion King’ Was Omitted In The Remake Because The Film Featuring Singing/Talking Animals Had To Be “Hyper-Real”

        No, it’s not live-action, but the remake of “The Lion King,” directed by Jon Favreau, is truly hyper-realistic. It’s so damn realistic that if you didn’t know the lengths the filmmaker went to in creating the film, you might very well think that it was filmed with real animals. However, according to one of the VFX people behind the scenes, a ton of work went into creating the remake, and the mandate to make everything “hyper-real” meant that one classic scene from the animated film had to be greatly changed.

        HBO Max Grabs ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming Catalogue, Will Also Carry BBC Series Like ‘The Office’

        During lunch break on a Western TV series, fading star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) settles into a director’s chair next to his nine-year-old co-star.

        Dark Universe Producer Has No Regrets About Universal’s Failed Franchise

        Dark Universe Producer Has No Regrets About Universal’s Failed Franchise
        With “Hobbs & Shaw,” the latest entry in the “Fast & Furious” franchise opening this weekend, the film’s writer/producer Chris Morgan has been doing the press rounds, and recently weighed in about his glory days as a progenitor of Universal’s busted Dark Universe mega franchise.

        The producer of 2017’s box-office bellyflop “The Mummy” — i.e. patient zero of the Dark Universe — Morgan told io9 he has no “regrets or anything like that… it probably was trying to come together too quickly, I would say. And I think everyone got to take a breath and take a step back and take a look at it, and now just focus on maybe doing it a little bit slower.”

        The Mummy” starred Tom Cruise, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe, and was directed by Alex Kurtzman, who hasn’t made a film since but has taken the lead on CBS All Access

        ‘American Dreamer’ Trailer: Comedian Jim Gaffigan Goes Dark In The Upcoming Kidnapping Thriller

        Earlier this summer, the world was introduced to a comedian taking a more dramatic role and perhaps turning in the performance of her career with Awkwafina in the film “The Farewell.” Stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan is hoping to turn the corner into dramatic roles with his film “American Dreamer.” Though it must be said that “American Dreamer” and “The Farewell” couldn’t be further apart on the drama spectrum.

        ‘One Child Nation’ Exclusive Clip: Filmmaker Nanfu Wang’s Sundance Award-Winning Doc Examines China’s Terrible One Child Policy

        For years, China had taken extreme measures to control its population growth. One of those measures was the One Child Policy, which limited the families in the country to only having one child. Thankfully, that terrible law was ended in 2015, but the effects of the policy live on, as seen in the upcoming documentary, “One Child Nation.”

        And in honor of “One Child Nation” arriving in theaters on August 9, we are happy to give you an exclusive look at a clip from the film, which illustrates exactly what the One Child Policy was such a horrible, and heart wrenching, law for China’s people.

        ‘The?Daily?Show’ Behind the Scenes: Trevor Noah Tells Democrats to ‘Get Their Sh-t Together’

        For the fifth time this year — and the second time this week — “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” aired live on Comedy Central Wednesday night, with jokes written moments beforehand about the just-concluded Democratic presidential debate. But Noah’s most resonant comments were left off-camera, and they spoke to the tricky balance of a program designed to engage with a charged political environment even as it avoids a didactic tone.

        While Noah jabbed at the tension between candidates, he resisted editorializing on the big picture while live. That came during the commercial breaks, when he turned to the studio audience who had watched the debates in the room before the broadcast.

        “You know, I think winning an election should be based on ideas, not how well they can discredit or destroy someone else,” he said, and shrugged, as the show came back on the air.

        That was it — no punchline,

        Cult variety TV show “The Eyeslicer” is gearing up for its second season, one that will move the streaming series into the terrestrial world with a brand new mini film festival, taking place in Brooklyn from September 14 to 17. The brainchild of creators Dan Schoenbrun and Vanessa McDonnell, the episodic series invites some of independent film’s most exciting directors to embrace their weird and experimental side in making a variety of short content, which is then weaved into thematic episodes.

        The 13-episode Season 2 of “The Eyeslicer” will feature work from over 70 filmmakers, offerings that the co-creators describe as “a deep-dive into the strange, dark heart of our contemporary American hellscape, while also being an optimistic celebration of independent art-making within said hellscape.”

        Starting with this new season, the internet will no longer be the series’ principal platform, but it will instead use a unique, zine-inspired mini-festival in Brooklyn and the
