Captain America: Civil War, Deadpool Among Nominees For People’s Choice Awards 2017

Captain America: Civil War and Deadpool are among the movies nominated for the People’s Choice Awards 2017.

As two of the most successful releases of the year – and not just in terms of the lucrative superhero genre – confirmation that Civil War and Tim Miller’s R-rated romp are up for awards shouldn’t be all that surprising. They both feature in the ‘favorite movie’ category, and will be competing against Finding Dory, Suicide Squad and the barnstorming Zootopia in two months’ time. Voting is open from today, November 15, and you’ll be able to cast your vote right up until December 15. Expect the winners to be officially announced at the Microsoft Theater on January 18.

Nominations are spread across 64 individual categories, and you’ll notice that Captain America: Civil War and its leading stars crop up on more than one occasion. The People’s Choice Awards 2017 also recognizes the very best

Stars Abound at Boohoo Bash for Beyonce's Concert in La

Stepping out for an exciting evening, a bevy of Hollywood beauties showed up at the Boohoo shindig at Hyde Lounge last night (December 3).

Hosted by Stoli Premium Vodka, the #Crazyinboohoo VIP viewing party for Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter World Tour drew babes like Anna Kendrick, Julianne Hough, and Kelly Osbourne.

“Twilight” hunk Kellan Lutz represented the fellas, while Whitney Port, Zoe Saldana, and Victoria Justice added more eye candy to the spread.

Speaking of Miss Justice, she recently confessed to wanting to work with Lorde on a musical project- “I really love Lorde. And I just found out she’s only 16! She’s really cool. And to collaborate with her would be great, especially since she writes her own music and I write my own music. I really admire her because of that.”

Fund This Film: ‘Click Here’ Explores the “Minefield” of Going From Script to Screen

Once again, I’m thinking you movie fans out there will be interested in a documentary about filmmaking. It doesn’t have the all-star cast of something like Side by Side or the classic film clips of These Amazing Shadows, but Click Here should still be on your radar if you care about not just cinema but all visual storytelling in the digital age. Its full title is Click Here: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Making Movies, and it’s a project led by Pete Chatmon, who directed the early Zoe Saldana movie Premium and who teaches production at Nyu. He also won the Tribeca Film Institute’s Creative Promise Narrative Award in 2008 for a script that, five years later, has yet to be produced. That frustrating experience is what inspired him and co-writer Candice Sanchez McFarlane to embark on this other endeavor. Their scope appears to be very wide, as

Introducing The “Shadow And Act Black Filmmakers To Watch” Series…

I’ve been wanting to do this for some time – a periodically (maybe annually) updated list of up-and-coming black filmmakers, especially those working mostly outside the mainstream; something we could call “black filmmakers to watch,” preceded by a year, not-so unlike Filmmaker magazine’s annual “25 New Faces of Independent Film” list.

As I’ve already made known on this blog, I’m not necessarily a fan of lists, especially ranked lists where the arts are concerned.

However, I do see Some value in providing black cinema enthusiasts like yourselves (or cinema enthusiasts regardless of race) with the names of noteworthy black filmmakers who may otherwise go unnoticed by the the mainstream press, and even indie film publications like Filmmaker magazine. We’re celebrating those black filmmakers… propping them up, you could say. If a site like ours doesn’t do that, we certainly can’t complain when more prominent media outlets don’t.

Zoe Saldana Makes Them Believe In "The Skeptic"

  • Latin Horror
By Edwin Pagán, for Latin Horror

Seems like 2009 is the year when our marketable Latina actresses are taking the plunge into the darker side of the industry's genre landscape. First we mentioned here [http://tinyurl.com/cs4set] that Salma Hayek is riding a leading role in Paul Weitz' Cirque Du Freak as the bearded lady of sideshow fame, now another venerable talent, Zoe Saldana (Vantage Point, The Terminal, Premium, Guess Who), is set to hone her cognitive powers in the haunted-house thriller, The Skeptic, which was written/helmed by Tennyson Bardwell (Dorian Blues) and hits theater in a limited run on May 1st at the IFC Center in New York and elsewhere. The film also stars Tim Daly, Tom Arnold, Andrea Roth, Edward Herrmann, Robert Prosky and Bruce Altman. The project marks Bardwell's second feature outing.

The suspense thriller follows a skeptical lawyer (Daly) who moves into a haunted mansion after the unexplained
