Robert Redford explains why Hollywood has stopped making dramatic movies

0
0

Robert Redford Dimitrios Kambouris Getty

Robert Redford has never been shy about speaking his mind, whether the topic is politics, the environment, or the state of the movie industry.

Although the actor still shows up occasionally in the big-budget Hollywood movie — most recently "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"— for the most part he has been dedicated to helping filmmakers tell important stories that the Hollywood system won't touch.

Redford created the Sundance Film Festival, which has become the preeminent American film festival for independent filmmakers. He also stars in works by burgeoning talents.

His latest role in the movie "Truth" is a perfect example. In it, Redford plays Dan Rather during his controversial "60 Minutes" report on President George W. Bush's military record, which led to Rather stepping down as the anchor of "CBS Evening News."

Truth5 Lisa Tomasetti Sony Pictures Classics

Directed by first-time filmmaker James Vanderbilt — known best for his screenplays "Zodiac" and "The Amazing Spider-Man"— the independently financed movie, which also stars Cate Blanchett, is one that a studio would have nothing to do with now.

But in the 1970s, studios weren't shy to do button-pushing dramas. Redford starred in a few of them, like "Three Days of the Condor" and "All the President's Men."

Washington Post All The President's Men
What happened?

"Through the '60s and '70s, I enjoyed being able to do a large film and also at the same banner do a small film that I wanted to make," Redford told Business Insider during a press day for "Truth."

"I was very happy to do a larger film — either it was something that I liked or the larger films were good. But something changed in 1980. Hollywood became centralized and [the studios] were going to follow the youth market because that's where the money was. They weren't going to make these films that were more humanistic in nature and that's what made me want to start Sundance, to keep that alive."

Movies like "Jaws" and "Star Wars" made Hollywood completely change how it looked at the business. With "The Empire Strikes Back," and "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" on the horizon, the modestly budgeted drama would no longer have a place at the studio level.

Today, dramas at studios are mostly extinct — outside of a story that has awards-bait and a major star attached — with the focus firmly on big-budget blockbusters and, most recently, comic-book adaptations.

To Redford, it's simple.

"They're following the money," he said.

"Truth" opens in select theaters Friday.

Actress Brie Larson is skyrocketing to stardom

Jennifer Lawrence might be America's darling now, but she might have some stiff competition, as people are now saying Brie Larson could be the next Jennifer Lawrence.

Larson and Lawrence, besides sounding similar, both skyrocketed to fame in a relatively short amount of time. And, like Lawrence, Larson is making the move from indie darling to mainstream movie star.

Larson began her career as a teen pop star, but quickly made the transition to film with a small role in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." She later received praise for her part in the indie flick, "Short Term 12." Now, she's earning Oscar buzz with her new film "Room," out this weekend, in which she plays a woman who was kidnapped at a young age and held captive for seven years.

Larson has also made a splash in mainstream movies like "The Gambler" starring opposite Mark Wahlberg, and this summer's comedy hit "Trainwreck" with Amy Schumer. She's currently preparing for blockbuster fame as the lead in "Kong: Skull Island, a "King Kong" prequel that is expected to be released in 2017.

'Goosebumps' tops the weekend box office with $23.5 million

goosebumps

It looks like everyone is in the Halloween spirit as Sony's "Goosebumps" tops the domestic box office this weekend with an estimated $23.5 million, according to BoxOffice.com.

Starring Jack Black as a wicked version of legendary author R.L. Stine, the film features the author and a group of kids trying to save their town after Stine's demons — from his famous "Goosebumps" horror novellas — are set free.

Though some projected that "The Martian" would top the box office for a third consecutive week, the impressive Friday tally for "Goosebumps" estimated $7.35 million and proved that wouldn't be the case. The horror/comedy geared to the young adult crowd familiar with the novellas then spiked 31% in ticket sales on Saturday, according to Deadline

It's a good rebound for Sony after the lackluster turnout for its previous release, "The Walk."

Tom Hanks Bridge of SpiesThe weekend releases were one of the strongest so far this year with a mix of titles coming out at the same time: "Bridge of Spies," starring Tom Hanks and directed by Steven Spielberg; "Beasts of No Nation," Netflix's first theatrical release that could also be seen on Netflix streaming; and another horror tale, "Crimson Peak," by Guillermo del Toro (with films like "Room" and "Truth" in limited release).

"The Martian," however, topped them all, taking the second spot this weekend with an estimated $21.5 million, according to Exhibitor Relations.

"Bridge of Spies" came in third with $15.38 million, according to BoxOffice.com, which Disney/DreamWorks should be happy with as the Cold War drama was geared for the adult crowd.

Why Netflix isn’t worried that 'Beasts of No Nation' flopped in theaters

beasts of no nation

Netflix has spent more than a year building its original movie division, paying top dollar to work with stars including Brad Pitt and Adam Sandler and to acquire specialty fare that could put the streaming service in the Oscar game.

This weekend, those efforts were tested for the first time as Cary Joji Fukunaga’s "Beasts of No Nation," starring Idris Elba, debuted on the streaming service around the world and in 31 theaters in 30 U.S. cities willing to play the dark African war drama even though it was available to 43 million Netflix subscribers in the U.S. (most cinema circuits refused on principle to carry Beasts).

Netflix paid a hefty $12 million for worldwide rights to the $6 million film, but by any traditional measure, "Beasts of No Nation" flopped theatrically, grossing $50,699 for a theater average of $1,635 (as a way of comparison, Chinese film "Goodbye Mr. Loser" took in $353,992 from 37 North American theaters over the weekend for a location average of $9,567).

Those behind the plan for Fukunaga's critically acclaimed film say it won't live or die by how it does in cinemas, and that it's about consumer choice. It's also about the Oscar race. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos, the mastermind behind the company's move into original television programming, and his team have big awards ambitions for "Beasts of No Nation," hence the film has to have some sort of presence in theaters.

"'Beasts of No Nation' is a visually beautiful and socially impactful film widely acclaimed by critics and enjoyed by film lovers both on Netflix and in theaters. It is a privilege to instantly offer a story this human, radical and worthy to people in more than fifty countries. Whether in theaters this week or on any Internet-connected device now or in years to come, people all over the world are getting a unique opportunity to appreciate this film," Sarandos said Sunday in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

beasts of no nation netflix focus featuresNetflix scored best documentary feature nominations for "The Square" and "Virunga" during the past two awards seasons, but the big question will be whether awards voters will support a movie looking for recognition in the main categories that is primarily a small-screen play and isn't deemed a box-office success.

Interestingly, "Beasts of No Nation" did best at the Landmark Theatre in the Westside of Los Angeles, a haven for members of the various guilds and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. But even at the Landmark, it placed behind fellow award rivals "Steve Jobs,""Bridge of Spies" and "Room." It did, however, virtually tie with "Truth."

"From a marketing and awards perspective, we have no dent in our armor. People are really liking it," said another Netflix executive. "Clearly, a lot of people made the choice to watch it on Netflix and some made the decision to see it in theaters."

With these grosses, "Beasts of No Nation" isn't likely to stay in theaters for long. Netflix and partner Bleecker Street are already planning to rent, or "four wall," screens in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco in December as awards campaigning intensifies.

The majority of the 31 theaters carrying the film were Landmark locations, or 19. Landmark is the largest chain in the U.S. dedicated to arthouse fare.

As a whole, the theater exhibition community has taken none too kindly to Netflix's foray into original movies and its attempt to open a film in theaters at the same time as making it available on the streaming service.

"The box office for 'Beasts of Nation' is not surprising because, because Netflix had no faith in its commercial theatrical prospects and put no effort into its theatrical success," National Association of Theater Owners vice president Patrick Corcoran said Sunday. "It was merely PR for the home video, which is usually the only point of simultaneous release."

Netflix does not release viewership results for any of its programming.

The actor playing Baron Zemo in the next 'Captain America' movie says he won't be wearing the villain's infamous purple mask

Baron Zemo.JPG

Baron Zemo will be the latest villain to enter the lucrative Marvel films when he makes his debut in next summer's "Captain America: Civil War."

And though there aren't many specifics out there of how the former top scientist of the Nazi party will be used against Steve Rogers and other members of the Avengers, we did get a little piece of news from the actor playing him, Daniel Brühl ("Inglorious Bastards").

While promoting his next movie, "Burnt," starring opposite Bradley Cooper (in theaters October 30), Brühl told Business Insider that Zemo will be without one of his trademark looks.

"He does not wear the mask," he said, referring to the purple cloak the character is famous for wearing after a vat of powerful adhesive, known as Adhesive X, spilled all over him during a fight with Captain America, preventing Zemo from ever removing it.

"You would be surprised, it's different than what you'd think," said Brühl, talking about the Zemo character we see in "Civil War.""It's loosely connected to this character. But that's what I like about the Marvel guys, some of the characters and things they're dealing with always reference to current events so my character is from a different area than you would think."

Daniel Bruhl Anberto E. Rodriguez GettySo don't expect Zemo to be a carbon-copy of what's in the comics.

"Civil War" will focus on the aftermath of the events that occurred in the last Avengers movie, "Age of Ultron," which has caused politicians to form a governing body to determine when an incident warrants the Avengers to be called upon. This leads to friction within the team, coming at an inopportune time as another new enemy, likely Zemo, makes his presence known.

Brühl said it's not out of the question that Zemo could return for future movies. 

"There's a possibility," said the actor. "That's the way it's written."

"Captain America: Civil War" opens in theaters May 6, 2016.

The man who wrote the music for 'Beasts of No Nation' explains why he cried daily while working on the movie

Beasts of No Nation Idris Elba

In the emotionally-charged “Beasts of No Nation,” young Agu (Abraham Attah) is forced to join a group of African rebels after his family is killed in the midst of a civil war.

Following filming, director Cary Fukunaga needed a score that could match the emotion on screen and texted friend Dan Romer, 32, who he had worked with previously on the short film “Sleepwalking in the Rift.” 

“He texted, ‘Hey, I think I have a project for us to work on, want to do it?’’ Romer told Business Insider.

Dan Romer Tommaso Boddi Getty“I didn’t write a note until I saw the film,” he continued. “Originally Cary gave me free reign. He was like, ‘Follow your heart.’ I came up with something with a lot of strings, percussion, horns, and piano. Cary was like, ‘Great, now let’s tear it apart.’”

For the next five months, Romer worked every day on the film.

And being so immersed in the process, Romer admits to getting emotional often.

“In the months that I worked on that film I don’t think a day went by that I didn’t cry,” he said. “The experience Agu goes through, it’s so intense and beautiful.”

That emotion led Romer and Fukunaga to some unique ways to create the sound.

As Fukunaga wanted Romer to break down the arrangements he originally came up with and give them a more synthesized sound, the composer got creative.

One sound effect featured throughout the film is a submarine sonar.

“It’s part of a submarine sonar sound plugged into a sampler and played as a keyboard instrument,” Romer explained.

The result is a haunting, synthesized tone. Other unconventional sounds included the hum of wine glasses and coyote howls.

“Where my studio is, coyotes scream in the backyard every few nights,” said Romer. “So every time I heard them screaming I would go out and start recording them. So there’s a fair amount of coyote screaming in the movie with the pitch shifted around."

For example, in one scene where the rebels shoot an RPG at a truck, the noise of the weapon firing is a pitched-down coyote howl.

beasts rpgAnd then there are the jet fighters.

While Romer was sitting next to the director looking at footage one day, Fukunaga blurted out: “It just needs to sound like a squadron of fighter jets!”

With a mixture of luck and a familiarity of Fukunaga’s tastes, Romer happened to have a sample track of a fleet of F-15 bombers screeching through the sky to plug into the pinnacle scene.

Romer couldn't help getting chocked up while talking to Business Insider about the process of creating the music.

With a laugh, he admits being a somewhat easy crier didn’t always help in the edit room.

“We’d watch certain scenes and Cary would go ‘Is it working or not?’ and someone would go, ‘Well, Dan is crying,’ and Cary would be like, ‘That doesn’t mean anything, Dan is always crying.’”

Looks like the actors in the new "Star Wars" movie, "The Force Awakens," were as excited as the rest of us to see the full trailer that debuted Monday night. 

After the much anticipated two-and-a-half-minute trailer premiered on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" (and put online), stars Daisy Ridley (as desert scavenger, Rey) and John Boyega (Finn, a former Stormtrooper who has left the Empire) posted videos of their reaction while watching it on Instagram. 

Ridley, 23, wrote in her post:

"Staying in a little b'n'b with my friend... Set an alarm to watch the trailer... My friend filmed my reaction. Totally emotional seeing it for the first time and so so so incredibly awed to be part of this incredible legacy."

The video shows Ridley watching it in bed. At one point she begins to cry, saying "Oh my goodness, amazing."

Boyega's couldn't hold back his excitement either. 

Writing in his post:

"THE TRAILER IS JUST EEEEPPPPPPPIIIIICCCCCCC! Star Wars is back! gaaaaaad laaaaard! You know what! Let me just relax because this kind God oooo! Lmao! Seriously congrats to everyone ! December 18th!"

In the video Boyega literally jump out of his seat at one point.

Disney and Lucasfilm just debuted a new trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and there's a lot to take in from the over two-minute trailer.

If you missed the trailer or want to see it again, head here.

Good?

All right, let's take a closer look at some of the big moments from the latest trailer that you'll be talking about for the rest of the week.

Finn will definitely switch from the dark side to the light.

We know from the first teasers (and from merchandise) that Finn was a former Stormtrooper.

Something leads him to break away from the dark side and join up with Poe Dameron and the rebels. 

How he winds up with a lightsaber is still unknown. 



Kylo Ren is set to be the next Darth Vader.

The character utters the phrase, "I will finish what you started," as the camera pans over Vader's melted, archaic mask. 



Also, is this Kylo Ren aboard the new Death Star?

We saw a new Death Star-like weapon in the new "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" poster. Could Kylo be aboard it in this scene or is simply aboard his own Command Shuttle in this image?

The world has finally caught up with “Back To The Future Part II.”

This week is the week that Marty McFly and his friends visited when they took a trip to the future in the 1989 movie.

While the filmmakers had some pretty major misfires in predicting what America would be like in October 2015 (like that everyone wears their pockets inside out), they got an impressive amount of details right.

The highlights of their most accurate predictions include smart watches, hoverboards, virtual reality headsets, and even the Cubs making a World Series run.

China's no-ghost rule could haunt 'Crimson Peak'

Crimson Peak

After “Crimson Peak”’s tepid $13.1 million North American debut, producer Legendary Pictures probably is hoping for a big recoup in China, as happened in 2013 when director Guillermo del Toro's “Pacific Rim” grossed $113 million there, salvaging its underwhelming stateside performance.

Both del Toro’s track record in China and recent buzz around “Crimson Peak” on Mtime and Douban, two of China’s most popular movie discussion sites, indeed suggest the film might do well there. 

But the gothic romance, which hasn't secured a China release, could run into problems because of supernatural elements that might violate one of the China Film Bureau's more bizarre dictates — what one might call a "no-ghost protocol."

Stemming from the Communist Party's secular ideology, China's official censorship guidelines prohibit films that "promote cults or superstition." China censors have used the provision as rationale for banning or demanding cuts to films that present ghosts or supernatural beings in semi-realistic fashion (exceptions are made for stories based on Chinese mythology).

pirates of the caribbeanIn 2006, Disney's “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest” was banned because of scenes involving ghosts and cannibalism (the next “Pirates” squeaked through after cuts were made).

“Crimson”’s entire premise — a young bride (Mia Wasikowska) who can commune with the dead seeks to learn more about the ghosts that haunt her husband's home — would seem to violate China's guidelines. But by that standard, so might next summer's “Ghostbusters.”

Chinese filmmakers have been known to employ inventive, if inadvertently amusing, plot devices to work around the no-ghost policy — deus ex machina as censorship dodge. Consider local horror hit “The House That Never Dies,” which grossed $65 million last year.

Inspired by a well-known, purportedly haunted, house in the Chinese capital, the film follows a woman tormented by ghosts in her historic Beijing mansion — so far, unprecedented for modern Chinese cinemas. But then a final act reveals that all of the foregoing ghostly encounters have simply been hallucinations, because the heroine was secretly dosed with LSD. Other Chinese genre directors have used curtain-closing revelations of mental illnesses, bad dreams or hypnosis to skirt the rules.
 
Legendary is in the unenviable — but increasingly familiar — position of having to play wait and see what China decides. “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig, meanwhile, might be writing an alternate Chinese ending where Bill Murray wakes up from a weird dream in which he was Kristen Wiig.
