Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ Trailer: De Niro and Pacino Reunite as Much Younger Mobsters (Video)
Robert De Niro and Al Pacino reunite — and it looks like they’ve shed years off their faces in the first trailer for Martin Scorsese’s CG-enhanced mob movie “The Irishman.”

Netflix’s true-crime story, which will open this fall’s New York Film Festival, stars De Niro as a World War II veteran turned mafia hitman named Frank Sheeran. Pacino plays Jimmy Hoffa, the former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters who went missing in 1975. Hoffa’s body was never found and his fate was speculated about for decades.

The trailer suggests a decade-spanning saga of organized crime in post-wwii America that covers Hoffa’s rise as leader of the Teamsters, Sheeran’s participation in hits for the Bufalino crime family as well as the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Maybe the finest work of the late Paul Walker, Running Scared is about as dark as crime thrillers get. Dealing with sensitive subject matter in a brazen, haphazard way, it's most definitely not for everyone. Still, even beyond Walker's committed performance, there's something to it. The end credit sequence point to the idea that Scared is a Grimm fairy tale, a paranoid nightmare that explores the worst fears of both parent and child.

Move over, Nigella: the YouTube food stars taking a bite out of TV's top chefs

From making Skittles from scratch to tasting gold leaf pizzas, a new generation of gastronomists are swapping Netflix and the BBC for Diy cookery shows

Any hungry person with a Netflix subscription will tell you that this is a golden age for food TV, with opulent, big-budget shows such as Chef’s Table, Ugly Delicious and Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat offering feasts for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

But over on YouTube, a slew of pretenders to the throne are making a virtue of more modest budgets, like canny food-truck chefs giving Michelin-starred restaurants a run for their money. They can’t boast the exotic locations or multicamera setups of Netflix’s shows, but thanks to their wit, charisma and concepts, that doesn’t really matter.

Sylvia Miles (1924-2019)

by Nathaniel R

Two time Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee and party fixture Sylvia Miles died yesterday, three months shy of her 95th birthday. The NYC native rose to fame as a cult figure, a pioneer of Off Broadway plays, part of the Studio 54 scene, and a rather daring actress. She was often seen with Andy Warhol never quite going mainstream. Both of her Oscar nominations, for example, came from very brief gritty performances, at least in Oscar terms...

Iconic New York Actor Sylvia Miles Dies at 94

Tony Sokol Jun 12, 2019

Sylvia Miles was the original Sally on the Dick van Dyke Show, and a fixture of New York's entertainment world.

Iconic New York stage and screen scene-stealer Sylvia Miles died at age 94, according to Variety. Miles created a string of incredibly memorable, very New York characters, often with very little screen time. She was on the screen for six minutes in Midnight Cowboy (1969), about five and a half minutes in Farewell, My Lovely (1975), and she was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for both. She only sold two apartments in Wall Street and its sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Miles had three short scenes selling Amy Irving to the pickle guy in Crossing Delancey.

Her starring role in Andy Warhol's Heat, is no less memorable, though criminally under-watched. A take on the classic Sunset Boulevard, as if any of Warhol's movies weren't, Miles played the Gloria Swanson

Sylvia Miles, Two-Time Oscar Nominee for ‘Midnight Cowboy’ and ‘Farewell, My Lovely,’ Dies at 94
Sylvia Miles, a scene-stealing, two-time Oscar nominee for supporting roles in the Best Picture winner “Midnight Cowboy” and “Farewell, My Lovely,” died on Wednesday. She was 94.

Her friend of 25 years, publicist Mauricio Padilha, confirmed her passing to TheWrap, saying Miles died Wednesday while in an ambulance to the hospital on her way from her Manhattan home due to “complications of age.” Padilha described her as “wonderful” and lived “surrounded by everything she loved.”

Miles made a name for herself in “Midnight Cowboy” as a sharp-tongued New York prostitute who manages to hustle Jon Voight’s character as he’s trying to make his own living as an aspiring prostitute and con man. In the brief scene, only about six minutes of screen time in all, she goes from pleasantries to explosive, sobbing histrionics in seconds.

Actress Sylvia Miles, who was Oscar-nominated for “Midnight Cowboy” and “Farewell, My Lovely,” died Wednesday at her home in New York. Her friends, journalist Michael Musto and actress Geraldine Smith, confirmed her death. She was reportedly 94, although she gave various accounts of her age.

Celebrity journalist Musto, who was about to appear with Smith and Miles in an indie film, said, “She was one of my first celebrity interviews (in the 1970s) and was charismatic and career driven. She’d run up to directors at Studio 54 and say ‘Hire me!’ She was very proud of her two Oscar nominations.”

Smith said “Her family was her New York friends,” and related how she had been excited to get back to acting.

Miles’ first major role came in the 1969 film “Midnight Cowboy” alongside Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman. Despite only appearing on screen for about six minutes, her role as Cass earned her an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress.

Governors Awards Go to Geena Davis, David Lynch, Wes Studi, and Lina Wertmüller

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors voted Saturday, three months earlier than usual, to select their choices for the 11th annual Governors Awards. The Academy moved up the date for the Governors Awards from November 16 to Sunday, October 27. The nearly three-week jump backward reflects a similar shift for the February 9, 2020 Oscars.

The non-televised awards program always draws a number of Oscar contenders to the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland to celebrate the honorary Oscar winners as well as the occasional Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and Irving J. Thalberg Memorial Awards.

This year’s selection reflects the Academy’s current emphasis on diversity, as Oscar-nominated Italian director Lina Wertmüller (“Seven Beauties”) and Native American actor Wes Studi (“The Last of the Mohicans”) join long-overdue director David Lynch to accept Honorary Oscars.
