Dear Movie Lover,
|Congratulations 2013 Oscar Winners!|
|FROM NOAH TO SON OF GOD
2014 is Jam-Packed with Biblical Films
Exactly a month before the Russell Crowe-starring film Noah and his arc arrive on March 28th, another Bible-based movie has hit the big screen in February and this one has already earned the stamp of approval from religious leaders. Son of God features a mix of new and used footage from the History Channel's hit mini-series The Bible---which averaged 11.4 million viewers---to tell the story of Jesus.
Looking ahead to December 12th, Fox will debut Exodus directed by Ridley Scott and starring Christian Bale as Moses. Details are scarce on the project but sources close to the production say Scott, an avowed agnostic, has chosen an unconventional depiction of God in the film.
The open question is whether or not his decision will be satisfying to movie-going fans of Noah and the Bible.
MERYL STREEP JOINS
The Oscar winner is in final negotiations to take on the role of political activist Emmeline Parkhurst. Carey Mulligan also stars in the drama, portraying a young foot soldier of the early feminist movement who becomes radicalized after seeing peaceful protests achieve nothing.
Streep has a smaller but important role in the film depicting Parkhurst, the leader of the British suffragette movement who founded the Women's Social and Political Union--- WSPU---in the early 1900's.
A Best Actress nominee for August: Osage County, Meryl Streep 's upcoming projects include The Giver and Into The Woods.
THINGS THEY DON'T TELL YOU IN ACTING SCHOOL
Part of being a professional actor involves knowing the intricacies of the craft and working so your drama skills fit the market.
- You aren't special. Even if you got a standing ovation at community theatre playing Stanley in Streetcar, you're not a star anymore.
- Acting is business too. You have to combine artistry with business savvy to get noticed.
- You won't be the "lead" right away. "He went that way" is the kind of line you'll most likely have at your first movie audition.
- You are a "type." In acting you stretch, often play characters twice your age and even occasionally switch genders.
- You need to master the room. Learn the fine art of auditioning as that is the key to getting casting directors to trust you.
DRONES AT FENDI'S MILAN SHOW
It seems that designers are going above and beyond this season to come up with buzz-generating and technologically innovative stunts to pull during Fashion Week runway shows.
There was Alexander Wang's Revolving Platform and Opening Ceremony's Chocolate Wall. And now that London has wrapped up and we've moved on to Milan's moneyed fashion houses, there were, of course, drones.
Fendi had several Fendi-branded high definition drones flying along the runway during its show.
It was---wait for it---"the first ever fashion show seen through the eyes of the drones"---per a media release.
In this comedy western, Richard Pryor's lines are mostly ad-libbed. As the cowboy who's blamed for another man's crimes, his most famous comes when he's about to be hanged. Asked "do you have any last words, Senor?" He responds; "yes, help!"
