From Battery-Powered Sets to Finessing Craft Service, How Hollywood Is Reducing Its Carbon Footprint

  • Variety
For a town whose cultural climate can be rife with toxicity, exclusion and abuse, you’d be surprised by how organized and cooperative Hollywood has become in combating climate change.

At least that’s what Variety found when surveying the carbon footprint of modern show business — specifically in terms of producing film and television content at home on Los Angeles studio lots and on locations around the world.

While creators and executives have come under fire in recent months for failing to make movies that address the global climate crisis, they are taking steps to make their productions more eco-friendly. It’s a moment that’s seen bitter competitors join hands to establish a set of best practices that help reduce emissions and encourage sustainability.

“We work closely with our peers at other studios because we share the same filmmakers, the same crews, the same vendors,” Shannon Bart, sustainability director of NBCUniversal,

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: What's Really "Black" About All These Black Movie Remakes?

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: What's Really
Hollywood has a long history of metamorphizing movies that featured white casts into movies with predominantly black casts. Most famously, The Wizard of Oz (1939) was remade as The Wiz (1978), but other color-coordinated remakes include Annie (2014), About Last Night (2014), Steel Magnolias (2012) and Death at a Funeral (2010). Within the past few months, we've had two such films: What Men Want (based on Mel Gibson's 2000 comedy What Women Want) and Little (less a remake and more a recycling of Big, Freaky Friday, Prelude to a Kiss and 18 Again). But is there anything especially "black" about these remakes that reinterpret the original ...

‘Russian Doll’ Trailer: Natasha Lyonne Gets A Raunchy ‘Groundhog Day’ in Netflix Comedy Series

Up until now, all television viewers have known about Netflix’s upcoming comedy series “Russian Doll” is that it stars Natasha Lyonne as a woman who attends a “seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City.” The streaming giant’s vague plot description didn’t give away the show’s central conceit, but the official trailer below certainly does. More or less, this Netflix original series is going to be Lyonne’s raunchy riff on the “Groundhog Day” formula.

Russian Doll” stars Lyonne as a woman named Nadia, who keeps dying one night only to wake up and find herself back in the same bathroom before a party. The trailer below transitions from broad comedy to more existential comedy, as Nadia’s attempts to get people to believe her begin to expose a more painful struggle of mental instability.

Demi Moore ‘Just Never Felt Good Enough’ Before She Found Recovery
Demi Moore was honored with Peggy Albrecht Friendly House’s Woman of the Year Award on Saturday night, and used the occasion to recall turning her life around early in her career. “I was spiraling down a path of real self-destruction and no matter what success I had I just never felt good enough,” she said to those in attendance at the women’s recovery center’s ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“I had absolutely no value for myself and this self-destructive path, it really quickly brought me to a real crisis point,” she added, per Variety. “It wasn’t clear at the time, maybe it was divine intervention, but two people who I barely knew stepped up and took a stand for me and presented me with an opportunity, which I guess was more like an ultimatum — unless I was dead, I better show up.”

Moore continued, “It

‘Night School’: As Will Packer Scores His Tenth Box Office Hit, Here’s the Secret to His Success
With the $28 million opening of Kevin Hart-Tiffany Haddish comedy “Night School” last weekend, producer Will Packer scored his tenth first-place box office opening. He’s a success story that stands out at a time when issues surrounding inclusivity and diversity are a cause célèbre, as the Hollywood machine faces steadfast criticism for its shortcomings on those fronts. Collectively, Packer’s films have earned a box office lifetime gross of over $1.2 billion, topping even the prolific Tyler Perry — a fellow African American director-producer with a similar ethos with respect to producing and distributing content. So what’s Packer’s secret?

It’s a formula that the seasoned producer honed very early in his career, with indie efforts like the 2000 erotic thriller “Trois”: relatively low- to moderately-budgeted films, targeting specific audiences that have been historically ignored by the studio system. “Trois” was made on a $250,000 budget, and grossed over

'Night School' & 'Smallfoot' Top Weekend, Capping Off a Strong September at the Box Office

'Night School' & 'Smallfoot' Top Weekend, Capping Off a Strong September at the Box Office
Universal topped the weekend box office for the second weekend in a row, this time with the comedy Night School starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. At the same time Warner Bros.'s animated feature Smallfoot finished in the runner-up position while the studio's horror hit The Nun became the highest grossing international and worldwide release in the Conjuring universe. All-in-all the weekend top twelve fell a bit shy of Mojo's pre-weekend expectations but this weekend did provide more than enough in terms of box office receipts to help deliver the second largest September on record behind last year's record breaking grosses. Universal's PG-13 comedy Night School from producer Will Packer topped the weekend chart with an estimated $28 million. While short of BoxOfficeMojo's pre-weekend forecast, this is a solid start for the $29 million production, which received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, a grade contrary to the mixed reviews from critics.

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)

Oscars invite 928 new members in 2018: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2017 totals too)
This year, a record 928 people were invited to join the motion picture academy and will be eligible to vote for the 2019 Oscars. Compare this intake to the totals of the previous four years: 774 in 2017; 683 in 2016; 322 in 2015; and 271 in 2014.

While Academy Awards nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

For example, actors must “have a minimum of three theatrical feature film credits, in all of which the roles played were scripted roles, one of which was released in the past five years, and all of which are of a caliber that reflect the high standards of the Academy.” For writers, directors and producers they need have just two of these credits.

The executive committee of the branch must endorse the application before forwarding it to the Board of Governors for final approval.

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens
In an astonishing move to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, a record 928 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to invite to join the Academy, but the Board of Governors makes the final call; this year, they did not invite Kobe Bryant to join although he won an Oscar for animated short “Dear Basketball.”

Clearly, people of color (38 percent) and women (49 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2017, the Academy invited 744 new members.

Seventeen Oscar winners are among the new members and 92 Oscar nominees. Nine of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women in the Academy has risen
