Trailer: ” ELLIS ” New Short Film by JR Starring Robert De Niro

For millions of immigrants entering the United States in the early twentieth century, Ellis Island was the gateway to a new life. Upon arrival, some travelers were approved, but many, due to illness or simply fatigue, were denied access and hospitalized.

Ellis, a fourteen-minute film directed by JR and written by Academy Award winner Eric Roth, tells the elusive story of countless immigrants whose pursuit of a new life led them to the now-shuttered Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital. Following its opening in 1902, approximately 1.2 million people passed through the facility, where the Statue of Liberty can be seen from the windows.

The short film stars Academy Award Winner Robert De Niro, was written by Academy Award winner Eric Roth and directed by the artist JR whose Unframed art installations in the abandoned Hospital complex serve as the set for this powerful and timely film.For everything Tribeca, head over to https://tribecafilm.com and follow us:

Your legacy is more than a name. Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan star in CREED – in theaters November 25th, 2015.
hollywood-creed-movie-2015

From Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema comes award-winning filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s “Creed.” The film explores a new chapter in the “Rocky” story and stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role. The film also reunites Coogler with his “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed.

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?

MC Ren Slams N.W.A ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Movie Trailers: ‘How the Hell You Leave Me Out?’

MC REN : took to social media to express his frustration with Universal Pictures for not depicting him in the Straight Outta Compton movie trailers.

“Man fuck these bitches at universal pictures leaving me out the movie trailers trying to rewrite history, When you have bitches work on a hip hop film that don’t know shit about hip hop this is what happens. How the hell u leave me out after all the work I put into them records. It’s disrespectful to me, my family and most of all my FANS” Ren tweeted on Wednesday, June 10.

The string of honest tweets are valid.  Mc Ren — who is played by Adis Hodge in the film — was a member of N.W.A. along with Ice Cube, the late Eazy-E, DJ Yella and Dr Dre. Unfortunately, the trailers don’t include an appearance by Neil Brown Jr. (who plays Yella) either.

The Blade Runner sequel will be shot by one of the greatest cinematographers of all time

ARTICLE CREDITS :  Bryan Bishop / The Verge 

 

The team behind the upcoming Blade Runner sequel have announced who will be shooting the film, and it’s enough to get even the most jaded fan excited. Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins will be shooting the film for director Denis Villeneuve, marking the third collaboration between the two filmmakers (they also worked on Prisoners and Sicario, which just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival).

When people talk about the stunning visuals, textures, and look of the original Blade Runner, it’s often director Ridley Scott and his meticulous attention to detail that get the credit — and while Scott’s impact can’t be overstated, it’s the incredibly talented artists behind the scenes that helped craft that vision and make it a reality. In the original, legendary director of photography Jordan Cronenweth shot the film, imbuing it with the melancholy atmosphere and look that inspired a generation of sci-fi filmmakers.

DEAKINS IS ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR CINEMATOGRAPHERS TO EVER TOUCH A CAMERA

For the sequel we’ll be getting Deakins, who is straight-up one of the most spectacular directors of photography to ever touch a camera. Going through Deakins’ credits is basically like reading a list of The Most Beautiful Movies You’ve Ever Seen: Skyfall, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The Shawshank Redemption,Dead Man Walking. There’s also his extensive collaboration with Joel and Ethan Coen — Deakins shot Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy,O Brother, Where Art Thou and a number of other films — as well as his gorgeous work in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken. Deakins has proven to be a forward-thinking technologist as well, adopting digital color timing well ahead of his contemporaries, and making the jump to shooting with digital cameras seamlessly without sacrificing beauty or image quality.

While there are still thousands of unanswered questions about the Blade Runner sequel — most importantly, Do we really need it? — the question of whether the movie will look stunning or not has been definitively answered. The film won’t start shooting until the summer of 2016 so we’ll have to wait to see how it all comes together, but in the meantime do yourself a favor: go to Deakins’ IMDB page, find every movie you haven’t seen, and start watching. Enjoy.

André 3000 stars in New biopic about Jimi Hendrix

Jimi has received favorable criticism when it premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and was written and directed by John Ridley, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay for 12 Years a Slave. Due to Hendrix’s estate (Jimi’s Sister,Janie Hendrix) choosing not to cooperate with director John Ridley, the film won’t feature any music written by Hendrix. Not only that, but it will also focus solely on the years just before Hendrix’s career took off, when he was just a cool guy with an afro playing cover songs that the film’s producers had more luck getting the rights to.
