Yes, Dame Judi Dench Has Totally Played Queen Victoria Before

27 September 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Focus Features If Dame Judi Dench's latest role seems a bit familiar, there's good reason. Dench stars in the new movie Victoria and Abdul, which is based on a true story about the unlikely bond between England's Queen Victoria and an Indian servant who became one of her closest advisers. But Dench already had some practice with this particular monarch: she also played Queen Victoria in the 1997 film Mrs. Brown, for which she snagged both an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe win.

Image Source: Everett Collection While the film itself has been subject to some mixed reviews, there's been almost unanimous praise for Dench's stunning performance in the starring role. And if she garners an Oscar nomination, she'll join an exclusive club: only six other actors »

‘Kingdom’: Talia Shire on Why She Returned to the World of Professional Fighters — and Acting

19 July 2017 6:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you’re going to make a movie about fighters, you can’t skimp on the details. So says Talia Shire, an actress who knows a thing or two about the genre.

“You notice everything,” Shire said during an interview with IndieWire. “I am terribly aware of [everything]. If you’re going to do a fighting movie, I’m looking at the scars.”

Shire noticed just that when she first came across “Kingdom.” Now, the actress who earned Oscar nominations for her two iconic turns in “Rocky” and “The Godfather: Part II,” has joined the cast of the Audience Network original series — with just three episodes remaining.

Veep Season 6 Finale: Showrunner David Mandel Dissects Those Huge Twists, Teases Looming 'End Game'

25 June 2017 8:19 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Veep‘s presidential library arc climaxed in Sunday’s time-tripping Season 6 finale as ex-potus Selina Meyer prepared to preside over the dedication of her museum/shrine. But inevitably an 11th hour crisis derailed her big moment as Amy informed her boss that the library was going to be built on Yale University’s former slave quarters. Oh, and the building looks like a giant vagina, prompting Selina to dub it a “Vagibrary.”

The Godfather voted top Don

10 June 2017 8:04 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

There was only one vote that really mattered this week, namely which movie really is the greatest of all time? That was the tough choice facing readers of Empire magazine, who sought to publish a list of the top 100 films in their June edition. After a mammoth count-up it was none other than the 1972 classic The Godfather which came out on top.

The cult flick’s unique blend of historical Sicily, horses’ heads and Mafia violence saw it beat many a crowd favourite to the top spot, including its sequel, The Godfather: Part II, which finished in twelfth place.

Making up the rest of the top ten (in this order) were The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Raider Of The Lost Ark, Jaws, Star Wars and The Fellowship Of The Ring. Quite why Sex Lives of the Potato Men didn’t make the cut is anyone’s guess. »

The Seven Deadly Sins On Screen

25 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A new video looks beyond Fincher at the Evil Men Do

Sin, as defined by most major religions and moral institutions, is as old as man. It is inherent to our nature, because ultimately sin is self-serving, and at the end of the day we are all self-serving creatures. Wrath, pride, sloth, lust, envy, gluttony, greed — as opposed to the Ten Commandments of Christianity which include distinct acts like adultery and murder, the seven deadly sins are things of which most all of us are guilty of multiple times over. We’ve all committed them, even on a minor scale. Ever think someone has a nicer car than you? Envy. Ever gotten a touch of road rage? Wrath. Ever hit the snooze button more than once? Sloth.

These are petty examples to be sure, but they illustrate how commonplace the seven deadly sins are in our daily lives, and thus they prove why the seven deadly sins »

Tribeca Film Festival Kicks Off With Storytelling for Every Size Screen

19 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As feature filmmaking continues to compete for resources, talent and audiences with television, digital storytelling, video games and virtual reality, film festivals face a growing dilemma. How do you embrace the increasingly diversified field of filmed storytelling, without losing your identity?

For the Tribeca Film Festival, which returns to Manhattan for the 16th year this week, the answer is philosophical: While ensuring that film remains the centerpiece of its offerings, Tribeca has endeavored to look at the festival as a “convergence” point for narrative storytelling, rather than siloing its offerings into strict platforms.

“I would say that we’re screen-agnostic,” says Tribeca Enterprises CEO Jane Rosenthal, who started the fest with Robert De Niro back in 2002. “We have unusual timing,” she says by way of explaining the fest’s approach to unique programming. “We’re right before Cannes and right after SXSW — and we’re not a destination-based festival. We’re in New York City, »

Tribeca 2017: 10 Must-Attend Events at This Year’s Festival

18 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Each year, the Tribeca Film Festival fills out its schedule with a variety of events that extend far past the typical film fest fare, including their signature Tribeca Talks program and a continuing bent towards the possibilities of Virtual Reality. This year’s slate is no different, offering up intimate chats between industry luminaries (did you know that Robert Rodriguez and Barbra Streisand are pals? they are!) and special screening opportunities for projects both new (Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War”) and classic (a “Godfather” one-two punch). There’s a little something for everyone here.

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival takes place April 19 – 30. Check out some of our must-attend events below.

Every year, celebrities, filmmakers, journalists and movie fans flock to the Tribeca neighborhood in lower Manhattan for the Tribeca Film Festival, an illustrious celebration of film and television that features some of the most exciting projects and panel discussions of any media festival in the country.

Founded by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the festival has helped revitalize the city and remind both filmmakers and fans alike of New York City’s valued place in film and TV while becoming a welcoming community for voices and perspectives from all over the world. “It’s also a fabric of our city. So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.”
