Crawl Early Reactions Are In: Gory Alligator Thriller Delivers Big Time

Crawl Early Reactions Are In: Gory Alligator Thriller Delivers Big Time
The first reactions for Crawl are in! This movie feels like it's falling under the radar a bit in a summer full of big, glitzy blockbusters. But many of those blockbusters have tanked, or at the very least underperformed. Luckily, it sounds very much like we're in for something totally different this weekend and, if the first reactions are to be believed, horror lovers are in for a real treat.

Crawl, very simply, centers on a daughter and her father who are trapped during a hurricane when vicious alligators wind up trying to hunt them down. It's produced by the legendary Sam Raimi and directed by Alexandre Aja. That has apparently made for a winning combination. Moviefone's Drew Taylor had this to say on Twitter.

"Secret's out: #CrawlMovie is the horror movie of the summer, an ingeniously realized creature feature classic full of Alexandre Aja's patented combination of white

Tom Hanks Stole a Cardboard Cutout of Himself, and He Totally Got Away With It

  • Popsugar
If you thought Sheriff Woody could do no wrong, think again! During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, Tom Hanks snuck into the Hollywoodland Experience gift shop to commit a dastardly deed: he stole a cardboard cutout of himself. After deeming Tom, aka America's dad, too "wonderful and perfect," Jimmy dared the beloved actor to nab his cardboard twin without getting caught. Tom's response? "The only thing I'm gonna get arrested for is being too charming."

As the Toy Story 4 star traveled through the gift shop and charmed unsuspecting tourists, he made sure to leave a little message on a cutout of his Saving Private Ryan costar Matt Damon's face. Not only did Tom successfully snag the cutout of himself, but he also grabbed an armful of fake Oscars to share with the Live! audience. Watch the full video to see all of Tom's shenanigans and what

‘The Command’ Review: An Examination of Negligence, Told Plainly and Mercilessly

In the summer of 2000, the Russian submarine named Kursk took on a naval exercise in the Barents Sea, the first of its kind since the fall of the Soviet Union a decade earlier. The Command (released under the title Kursk elsewhere), written by Robert Rodat and directed by Thomas Vinterberg, tells of the sub’s crew, the crew’s families and the government that failed them. Without fully spoiling this real-life event, things do not go well from those onboard the vessel.

As sub commander Mikhail (Matthias Schoenaerts) and his shipmates celebrate at their fellow soldier Pavel’s (Matthias Schweighöfer) wedding reception, the writing’s on the wall. Post-ussr Russia is floundering, wages are shrinking, and the military is energized only by principle. Speeches about duty and sacrifice underline what’s about to happen. Despite the relative modernity of this story (adapted from Robert Moore’s book A Time to Die

Michael Douglas Says He Lost Best Actor at Cannes Because of Steven Spielberg’s TV Bias

Michael Douglas Says He Lost Best Actor at Cannes Because of Steven Spielberg’s TV Bias
During an interview with “Traffic” co-star Benicio Del Toro as part of Variety’s “Actor on Actor” video series, Michael Douglas says he missed out on the coveted Best Actor prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival because of Steven Spielberg’s bias against television. Spielberg served as the president of the Cannes competition jury that year. The Douglas-starring “Behind the Candelabra,” directed by Steven Soderbergh, premiered in competition to universal acclaim.

“The word was I was the favorite for the best actor award,” Douglas said about Cannes that year. “[Spielberg] put the kibosh on that, because it was an HBO film. So when I now see this argument and beef about Showtime or Netflix, in this case, doing feature films, I think they’ve got to get this resolved.”

“Candelabra” stars Douglas as esteemed pianist and entertainer Liberace and Matt Damon as Liberace’s lover, Scott Thorson. The major reason HBO Films

Mark Gordon Exiting As Entertainment One President

Mark Gordon Exiting As Entertainment One President
Mark Gordon is settling out and will be leaving his position as president of Entertainment One, Deadline has confirmed. It appears to be a case of a bad marriage between the Canadian company and a prolific hit maker who sold his Mark Gordon Co for hundreds of millions of dollars.

EOne said: “While we don’t comment on internal organizational discussions, we can say that Mark Gordon continues to be a very important part of the eOne team now and into the future.”

Any exit might take time, because Gordon is under an employment contract and eOne has made a substantial investment in him. It is likely he would return to a focus on development and producing, which he did so well under his own banner. At eOne, Steve Bertram, Nick Meyer and Peter Micelli had been running day to day on film and TV and are expected to continue to do so.

Meet the Military Adviser Who Helped Bring Realism to ‘Platoon’ and ‘Saving Private Ryan’

Meet the Military Adviser Who Helped Bring Realism to ‘Platoon’ and ‘Saving Private Ryan’
Military adviser Dale Dye may have done more to help Hollywood deliver an accurate portrayal of war than anyone else in the business. From “Platoon” and “Saving Private Ryan” to “The Thin Red Line” and his most recent work, 2019’s “The Last Full Measure,” his attention to detail — along with his boot camp methods for teaching actors to be soldiers — share a singular vision: realism.

A veteran of three tours in Vietnam, Dye was a Marine correspondent awarded the Bronze Star for heroism in action. He’s equal parts storyteller, military historian and psychologist, and his performance prep goes where others fail to tread: into actors’ heads.

Born in 1944, in Cape Girardeau, Mo., Dale tagged along with his father, a liquor salesman, as he stocked local bars. Hearing war tales from the clientele, the youngster became fascinated with the military. After the Naval Academy turned down his application, he enlisted at age 20 in the Marines,

Short Film Review: Aadhira (2019) by Ilmaz Syed

“All communications are dead.“

With his first short film “Godhulibela” (“Era of Cows”) director Ilmaz Syed has already proven to be an artist committed to the problems of our time. Rather than tackling issues such as war or climate change through the medium of documentary, his approach may be considered more indirect since he seems to prefer the allegorical rather than the more direct view on these subjects. “Godhulibela”, through the use of the rather abstract setting, pointed at the meaning of conflict for our future, painting the picture of a barren landscape in which people have become extinct and the only surviving tyrant looks for his subjects now that his world order has become obsolete.

In his new feature “Aadhira”, Syed again takes a look at the future, albeit one not as distant as the one in “Godhulibela”. War has erupted between India and Pakistan, a conflict which has

‘Making Waves: The Art Of Cinematic Sound’ Review: Dir. Midge Costin (2019) [Cannes]

Fdc/PR

From accomplished sound editor Midge Costin, who has worked his magic on the likes of Armageddon, The Rock and Con Air, comes his feature directorial debut, a rather delightful, hugely insightful documentary, Making Waves: The Art Of Cinematic Sound, which premieres at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. The absorbing, very well-made piece, is a detailed trip back through Hollywood history showcasing sound design as a true art form, one that I soon realised I have shown great ignorance to in the years that I’ve been going to the movies.

The film takes the traditional talking heads approach speaking with pioneers of the sound world – from Ben Burtt, the legendary sound designer who has worked on the Star Wars and Indiana Jones series, Walter Murch, Francis Ford Coppola’s go-to sound guy and the man behind the aural cinematic masterpieces The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, through to the digital

‘Star Wars’ Team on Creating Chewbacca, Wookiee Noises in ‘The Art of Cinematic Sound’
“I knew the sound was part of the foundation of what the movie was going to be,” George Lucas explains in this exclusive clip from Midge Costin’s “Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound.” Ben Burtt, sound designer on “Star Wars,” goes on to explain how the team originally created the legendary sounds used for Chewbacca and the wookiees in the franchise.

The trick, he says in the clip, was spending time with a young bear and using bread to coax the sounds from the animal. The words from the film team, also including sound editor Richard Anderson, mesh with footage of Han Solo talking to Chewbacca. Peter Mayhew, who played the iconic wookiee, died in April.

Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound” premiered in the Cannes Classics documentary section. It takes a historical journey through sound design within cinema from its early beginnings to modern-day blockbuster films,
