At one point, the pair touched upon how their emotional state has altered as they've aged, with Brad stating that he's "quite famously not a crier."

He said: "I hadn't cried in like, 20 years. Now, I find myself at this latter stage, much more moved. Moved by my kids, moved by my friends, moved by the news. Just moved."

Pitt also got candid about his battle with alcoholism, and how he has tried to see the struggle as simply a chapter in his

Brad Pitt Debuts New Tattoo of Man and His Shadow Near His Matching Ink with Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt Debuts New Tattoo of Man and His Shadow Near His Matching Ink with Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt appears to have added a new tattoo to his collection — and it’s located near other very meaningful ink.

On Tuesday, the actor, 55, was photographed arriving in Italy ahead of the Venice International Film Festival. Keeping things casual, Pitt wore a T-shirt, jacket and newsboy cap.

Beneath his T-shirt’s sleeve, Pitt debuted his new inner bicep tattoo of a man’s silhouette standing over his shadow.

The new mysterious design is positioned next to a quote from a poem by Rumi that reads, “There exists a field, beyond all notions of right and wrong. I will meet

‘Meet Joe Black’ Goes Viral After 21 Years Thanks to Brad Pitt’s Insane Car Accident Scene

‘Meet Joe Black’ Goes Viral After 21 Years Thanks to Brad Pitt’s Insane Car Accident Scene
Martin Brest’s 1998 drama “Meet Joe Black” was a box office bomb in the U.S. with a $44 million gross on a $90 million production budget, but 21 years later it’s officially become a viral sensation. A clip from the movie resurfaced on Twitter this week featuring the film’s most ludicrous moment, a car accident scene in which Brad Pitt’s character gets bounced in the air between two moving vehicles, and it’s currently earned over 23,000 shares and nearly 90,000 likes. Only in the age of social media would “Meet Joe Black” find relevancy over two decades after its release.

Meet Joe Black” was distributed by Universal Pictures and was loosely based on the 1934 classic “Death Takes a Holiday.” The scene in question occurs after the first encounter between Claire Forlani’s Dr. Susan Parrish and Pitt’s unnamed man. The two characters meet in a coffee shop and have instant chemistry,

‘Fight Club’: David Fincher on Clashing With Ed Norton, Battling Fox Over Marketing, and Bad Box Office
David Fincher’s “Fight Club” has become one of his most iconic and quotable movies, but that was hardly the case when the film opened in theaters 20 years ago. Author Brian Raftery takes a behind-the-scenes look at the tumultuous making of the Chuck Palahniuk adaptation in the new book “How 1999 Blew Up the Screen,” an excerpt from which is now available to read on The Ringer. Fox 2000 executive Laura Ziskin optioned Palahniuk’s novel for $10,000 and originally courted David O. Russell to direct. Russell read “Fight Club” and passed because he just didn’t understand it. Fincher, meanwhile, was instantly attracted to the story.

“I was in my late thirties, and I saw that book as a rallying cry,” Fincher told Raftery. “Chuck was talking about a very specific kind of anger that was engendered by a kind of malaise: ‘We’ve been inert so long, we need to sprint

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in December 2018

  • Indiewire
Netflix’s December lineup has a handful of gems — including some films (e.g. “8 Mile”) that have been on the service before, and are now resurfacing after a brief absence — but there’s no avoiding the elephant in the room: “Roma.” The most important film that Netflix has ever released (and arguably also the best), Alfonso Cuarón’s stunning love letter to his childhood nanny is the company’s first legitimate Best Picture contender, and a game-changing moment in its history as a distributor; “Roma” even inspired the streaming giant to flip its usual script upside down and open the film theatrically in advance of its online premiere. After winning the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, and sweeping the New York Film Critics Circle’s top awards, “Roma” will finally be available to Netflix subscribers around the globe.

Daria Turns 20: 11 Things You Never Knew About the Iconic Show
Ask a certain crowd of people what the defining MTV show of their childhood was, and it’s not Trl, or Real World or Jersey Shore. It’s Daria. Though Ms. Morgendorffer had been seen on Beavis and Butt-Head before, the March 3, 1997, premiere of Daria proved that the two shows couldn’t be more different. Let’s take a fond trip back to Lawndale for a closer look at the best animated misanthrope of the ‘90s.

Star Wars 8 Trailer Won't Arrive Until Early 2017?

Star Wars 8 Trailer Won't Arrive Until Early 2017?
Star Wars fandom has once again hit truly feverish levels, since the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is just around the corner and pre-sale tickets recently became available. Despite the tremendous excitement surrounding the very first ever Star Wars spinoff, fans can't help but look ahead to Star Wars Episode VIII. So the question is, when will we see the first trailer for Star Wars 8? Fans had hoped it would maybe be attached to Star Wars: Rogue One upon release and that almost certainly won't be the case. But the Star Wars Episode VIII trailer may still land in front of Rogue One in the near future. Allow us to explain.

Mike Zeroh recently published a video to his Youtube channel and claims that the first teaser for Star Wars 8 will drop sometime in the first quarter of 2017. That timeline would seem to make sense. It

New to Streaming: ’10 Cloverfield Lane,’ Wim Wenders Road Trilogy, ‘Eternal Sunshine,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

10 Cloverfield Lane (Dan Trachtenberg)

Forget the Cloverfield connection. The actors who were in this film didn’t even know what the title was until moments before the first trailer dropped. Producer J.J. Abrams used that branding as part of the wrapping for its promotional mystery box, but the movie stands perfectly alone from 2008’s found-footage monster picture. Hell, 10 Cloverfield Lane perhaps doesn’t even take place

25 great music scores composed for not very good movies

Some brilliant scores accompany movies that don't always deserve them. Here are 25 examples...

Can a film soundtrack rescue a movie that is otherwise a lost cause? One thing’s for sure: throughout the history of cinema, music has often been the redeeming feature of many an underwhelming movie. Here are 25 amazing film scores composed for films that, frankly, didn’t deserve them.

25) Meet Joe Black (Thomas Newman, 1998)

This somnambulistic three hour romantic drama should really feature an extra screen credit for star Brad Pitt’s fetishised blonde locks. Rising way above the torpid melodrama of the plot is one of Thomas Newman’s most hauntingly melodic and attractive scores, one that leaves his characteristic quirkiness at the door to paint a portrait of death that is both melancholy and hopeful. The spectacular 10-minute finale That Next Place remains one of Newman’s towering musical achievements.

Diverse, awe-inspiring and memorable treasures that have sadly fallen off the radar

The noughties were a tough decade for film music fans. Not only was there the unprecedented loss of four great masters in the form of Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein, Michael Kamen and Basil Poledouris; the nature of the industry itself began to go through some seismic changes, not all of them for the better.

With the art of film scoring becoming ever more processed, driven increasingly by ghost writers, electronic augmentation and temp tracks, prospects looked bleak. However, this shouldn’t shield the fact that there were some blindingly brilliant scores composed during this period. Here’s but a small sampling of them.

25. The Departed (Howard Shore, 2006)

When it came to the sound of his Oscar-winning crime thriller, director Martin Scorsese hit on the inspired notion of having composer Howard Shore base it around a tango,
