Oscars 2014: Ex-music branch chief has clear conscience over surprise Best Song nomination

ALONE-YET-NOT-ALONE.jpg

Eyebrows were raised with both surprise and suspicion yesterday when it was announced that the track “Alone Yet Not Alone” — from a faith-based film of the same name — had gained an Oscar nomination, beating out tunes by both Taylor Swift and Coldplay, among others. The surprise was due to the fact that very few people had heard of either the song or its parent film. The suspicion? That the song’s cowriter Bruce Broughton had used his position as a former chief of the Academy’s music section to egregiously game the voting system and convince people to tick the box for his song.

How do you plan to spend Martin Luther King Jr. Day this year? Fox Searchlight has a suggestion: Go see 12 Years a Slave, which the studio will re-release into 700 theaters nationwide on Friday. To mark the occasion, the studio made a recut 12 Years promo that combines footage of the film and audio from King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during 1963′s March on Washington. King gave his speech not far from where the real-life Solomon Northup was drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery in 1841.

'Edge of Tomorrow': Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt gear up for battle -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

When Emily Blunt met with Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman for the first time to talk about their upcoming sci-fi action movie Edge of Tomorrow, Cruise didn’t mince words. “Tom made it very clear,” Blunt recalls. “He was like, [intense Tom Cruise voice] ‘Em, this is going to be really hard. Listen: This is gonna be INSANE.’ [Laughs] So I think I was prepped for what was about to be physically the most grueling thing I’ve ever done — but ultimately one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever been a part of.” READ FULL STORY

Shailene Woodley talks YA trifecta 'Spectacular Now,' 'Divergent,' and 'The Fault in Our Stars' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Spectacular-Now.jpg

2013 was a year stuffed with high-profile film adaptations of young adult bestsellers — most of which ended up crashing and burning at the box office. (Alas, Beautiful Creatures, Mortal Instruments, Percy Jackson, and Ender’s Game — no Harry Potter-style cultural dominance for you.) But while each of those big-budget spectacles flailed, a humbler YA-based movie quietly emerged as the year’s best teen flick: The Spectacular Now, out on DVD today.

Spectacular is a sweet but dark love story about gregarious alcoholic Sutter (Miles Teller) and his relationship with his smart, slightly nerdy classmate Aimee (Shailene Woodley). What you may not realize before seeing the film, however, is that The Spectacular Now isn’t just a typical teen romance told through an indie-fied lens. “I think it’s a very unhealthy dynamic that the two of them have together,” Woodley recently told EW. “One of the things that first drew me to Spectacular Now was that in high school, so many girls fall in love with someone, and they end up losing a lot of who they are because they’re so into the other person. And I went through that in high school, where I sort of gave myself away for a different human being. It was a really toxic relationship.”

Sundance 2014: Jason Schwartzman channels a jerk in 'Listen Up Philip' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Philip is not the most likable guy. In the first few seconds of director Alex Ross Perry’s film, Listen Up Philip (premiering at Sundance on Jan. 20), we see Philip (Jason Schwartzman) rushing down a New York street as a narrator (Eric Bogosian) explains that he’s “characteristically not in a hurry, but perpetually enraged by slow foot traffic before him.”

It’s the perfect intro to the character that you’re about to spend the next 108 minutes with as the embittered, narcissistic writer navigates his life, the stresses behind the release of his second novel, and his crumbling relationship. But you can’t seem to look away.

Chadwick Boseman brings James Brown to life in 'Get On Up' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

It’s a man’s world in Get On Up, the second feature film from director Tate Taylor (who loved women so well in his debut The Help). Taylor was thrown plenty of scripts about “women-in-pain” after his box office success but it ended up being the life and times of James Brown that most intrigued him. “As I dug in and started to discover more about him, the good and the bad, I loved the reasons he was often bad and I loved the reasons he was good,” says Taylor. “I love that he would stop at nothing to keep reinventing himself so he could stay current, and as a result he changed music.”

Taylor enlisted 42 star Chadwick Boseman, who turned in such a quietly dignified performance of baseball great Jackie Robinson,  to embody the Godfather of Soul. “Jackie has left the building, we’ll just say that,” says Taylor with a laugh. “Oh my god, Chad’s having so much fun.” (For the many musical numbers, Taylor employed a mix of Boseman’s own voice and an overlay of Brown’s actual voice.) Joining Boseman are Help stars Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, who play Brown’s mother and brothel-running aunt respectively, as well as Jill Scott who plays Brown’s wife Edie. Get On Up is shooting right now in Mississippi and is scheduled to hit theaters August 1.

The casts of the original X-Men trilogy and 2011’s X-Men: First Class team up for May’s highly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past. “It’s not a reboot because there’s some of the same characters and same actors,” says Bryan Singer, who previously directed the 2000 original and 2003’s X2. “But it’s also not a conventional sequel—I call it an inbetweequel.” READ FULL STORY
