A photo of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly reacting to President Donald Trump‘s menacing United Nations address on Tuesday has gone viral.

The photo, taken by Mary Altaffer of the Associated Press, shows Trump’s homeland security secretary turned chief of staff holding his face in his hand while listening to his boss, with First Lady Melania Trump seated in front of him.

Telluride Film Review: ‘Lady Bird’

4 September 2017 2:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

By the time you read this, you’ll probably have a pretty good idea of what the movie “Lady Bird” is about, seeing as how it’s the kind of modest, miraculous low-budget gem that takes on a life of its own. But sight unseen, the title sounded a lot like a sequel to last year’s “Jackie,” seeing as how Lbj succeeded JFK in office, and Lady Bird was the name of his wife. Turns out Lady Bird was also the name restless high school senior Christine McPherson picked for herself — a first act of defiance in a battle to assert her own identity as separate from her parents.

Lady Bird” is indie darling (and one-time mumblecore muse) Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, and the character is basically her, 15 years younger and played by Saoirse Ronan, sporting a vampire-red rinse and a face full of acne (both signs of its attention to detail). Early Telluride reactions »

Errol Morris on ‘Alternative Facts,’ CIA Coverups and His New Netflix Series ‘Wormwood’

1 September 2017 3:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Errol Morris, the Oscar-winning director of “The Thin Blue Line” and “The Fog of War,” is back with the most formally daring project of his career, “Wormwood.”

The six-part Netflix miniseries defies easy categorization. It is equal parts documentary and narrative drama — a dazzlingly original dive into the mysterious death of Frank Olson, a CIA employee who plunged out of a New York City hotel window in 1953 after unwittingly being dosed with LSD. The binge-able series follows Olson’s son, Eric, as he tries to piece together what happened to his father, interspersing interviews with dramatic scenes acted out by the likes of Peter Sarsgaard and Molly Parker. It makes a compelling case that the spy agency, which later apologized for drugging Olson, also had him murdered and spent decades covering up its crime.

Wormwood” debuted Friday at the Telluride Film Festival. Before touching down in Colorado, Morris spoke with Variety about his passion for truth-finding, the »

Oliver Stone to Head Jury at Busan International Film Festival

20 August 2017 8:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oliver Stone, the ever-controversial American-French director, has been named president of the competition jury for the upcoming Busan International Film Festival, itself no stranger to controversy.

Stone heads an impressive panel including Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi (“A Time for Drunken Horses”), French cinematographer Agnes Godard (“The Dreamlife of Angels”), Philippines director Lav Diaz (“From What Is Before,” “The Woman Who Left”), and South Korean director Jang Sun-woo (“Lies”). They will judge a selection of Asian films in the New Currents section that represents the festival’s cornerstone.

Stone, who has credits including “Wall Street,” “JFK” and “Snowden,” has often criticized governments, greed, collusion and corruption. That matches the Busan festival’s stance.

The festival is still in turmoil nearly three years after it stood up to political interference from city authorities who acted as proxies for a nationalist and now disgraced right-wing South Korean government. The aftermath of the festival’s decision to screen a controversial documentary »

The Defender's Scott Glenn Joins Stephen King's Castle Rock Series

15 August 2017 8:07 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hulu is making quite a name for itself in the original content space by successfully leveraging adaptations of classic and popular literature. The Handmaid's Tale, Harlots, and Chance have all been critically acclaimed and embraced by audiences. But Hulu's true secret weapon might just be the pairing of horror writer Stephen King and producer J.J. Abrams. Their initial outing, the well-received 11/22/63, a time-travel, sci-fi tale about one man's mission to prevent the assassination of JFK.

Earlier this year Abrams and King announced their follow-up on Hulu, and it might be the kind of out-of-left-field creation that seriously turns up the heat on fellow streaming services Netflix and Amazon. The new series, Castle Rock, is not based on any single King novel, however. Instead, the show leverages a fictional town in Maine, which has been the setting in no less than 11 of King's novels (he established the town in his 1979 novel »

The 15 greatest John Williams scores you've forgotten about

1 August 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Wilson Aug 4, 2017

Yes, Star Wars. But what about all the great John Williams scores from less famous movies? Here are 15 of them...

Cinema's most esteemed and popular film composer, John Williams, turned 85 this year (you might have seen the recent spectacular BBC Proms concert in his honour). Careers don't come more astonishing than that of Williams, nominated for 50 Academy Awards which puts him second only to Walt Disney for the most ever.

See related  What does Iron Fist tell us about Marvel's Defenders? The Defenders: recapping Netflix's Marvel universe so far The Defenders: brand new images released

However it's all too tempting to boil Williams' career down to the more obvious highlights: Star Wars, the Indy trilogy, Superman, E.T., Jurassic Park and the like. In truth, he's a far more versatile composer than many like to give him credit for, and he's much more than just a big themes guy. »

‘Lbj’ Trailer: Woody Harrelson Completely Transforms For Rob Reiner’s Presidential Biopic

27 July 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Watch out, Gary Oldman. Woody Harrelson has arrived to be the king of fall political biopics featuring major transformations. Oldman is completely unrecognizable as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and so is Woody Harrelson in the upcoming Presidential biopic “Lbj,” directed by Rob Reiner.

Read MoreWoody Harrelson’s Hammy Performance Almost Makes ‘Lbj’ Worth Endorsing

The biopic picks up with Lbj in the wake of President Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, 1963. As the nation mourns, Johnson must contend with longtime adversary Attorney General Bobby Kennedy (Michael Stahl-David) and one-time mentor Georgia Senator Richard Russell (Richard Jenkins) as he seeks to honor JFK’s legacy by championing the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964. Jennifer Jason Leigh co-stars as Lbj’s devoted wife Lady Bird.

Lbj” premiered at Tiff last year to mostly unfavorable reviews, meaning we don’t expect to see Harrelson’s transformation factor into the upcoming awards race for Best Picture. »

10 Best TV Shows to Watch in June: Killer Cars, Putin Speaks and More

31 May 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's a strange month for TV, a sort of negative zone after the networks wrap up their big-ticket programming and before they launch their summer favorites. (Game of Thrones doesn't come back until July, so we can all chill, if not Netflix-and-chill, for another few weeks.) While a few favorites will make their long-awaited returns this month – good to see you again, Preacher! How ya been, Orphan Black? – there's no better time to investigate something new and/or more unusual. Say, a Florida noir touched up with ridiculous humor, or »

Kevin Bacon: ‘I thought I'd be sent to the TV graveyard’

Footloose made him a movie star – but now he’s coming around to the joys of the small screen. Kevin Bacon talks marriage, falling victim to Bernie Madoff, and I Love Dick

Everyone knows the shtick about Kevin Bacon. You know, the theory that anyone in the entertainment business can be connected to him by, at most, six removes: the Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon. So, to take an actor at random, Dolly Parton: Parton voiced the animated film Gnomeo And Juliet along with James McAvoy, who starred in 2011’s X-Men: First Class, in which Bacon played the bad guy. It works even with actors from previous generations, such as, say, Gene Kelly: Kelly directed 1967’s A Guide For The Married Man with Walter Matthau, who appeared in JFK, in which Bacon played a crooked gay hustler.

Playback: Michael Rooker on ‘Guardians’ and the Evolution of Blockbusters and TV

18 May 2017 10:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Two weeks into release “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2” is still killing it at the box office. One of the film’s stars and highlights, Michael Rooker, is back from traveling around the world promoting the film and he’s in our studio this week to discuss the Marvel phenomenon and more.

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »
