The Tank Gang Makes a Daring Escape in Deleted 'Finding Dory' Scene

by Charles Bramesco 3 days ago
This past summer's Finding Dory made a big splash at cineplexes (pardon me while I self-immolate), enchanting kid- and adult-aged viewers alike while running up the year's highest domestic gross. On the unfortunate side, however, the de rigueur short runtime of children's programming meant that some bits of the film had to be left on the cutting room floor like so many discarded fish eyeballs. Today, one lost sequence from Pixar's latest smash has been recovered and brought to the viewing public's attention.

Paul Schrader is a living Hollywood legend. Even if the man never wrote or directed another movie, his work as a screenwriter for Martin Scorsese  —  which includes Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Bringing Out the Dead  —  would ensure his legacy for generations to come. Thankfully, Schrader is still very much out there and looking to get his films made. Dog Eat Dog opened to mixed reviews at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, but even those who didn’t like it agreed that Schrader still has style to spare as a filmmaker. And now we’ve finally got a chance to check out the first trailer for his newest film.

See the Cast of 'Cry-Baby' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes March 6, 2014 @ 3:35 PM
Back in 1990, before Johnny Depp was the major A-list actor he is today, he starred in the John Waters cult musical comedy 'Cry-Baby,' about a conservative girl in 1950s Baltimore who falls for a rebellious bad boy against her mother's wishes. A parody of classic musicals like 'Grease,' the movie wasn't a major success at the time, but went on to become a beloved cult classic and inspire a Broadway musical. Twenty-four years later, we revisit the cast of the film that helped make Depp famous and see what they're up to now.

"Real, deep, soulful, transcendental, enjoyable brotherhood in this wonderland of a town ..." That's how Jeff Goldblum describes Wes Anderson's latest film, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel.'
The film is sort of an unofficial who's-who guide to Wes Anderson movies. Goldblum and Willem Dafoe, for example, were re-enlisted by the acclaimed indie director (after starring in 'The Life Aquatic' and 'Fantastic Mr. Fox,' respectively) to join a cast that includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton and Anderson newcomers like Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori and Saoirse Ronan.
We had a chance to sit down with Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe to talk about working in a "wonderland of a town" for 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' being part of the Wes Anderson "brotherhood," and bringing a dark edge to the humorous caper adventure.

'A Most Wanted Man' Review

Nobody shoots people through windows quite like Dutch photographer-turned-filmmaker Anton Corbijn. After coming out of the gate with the splendid Ian Curtis biopic 'Control' and the gorgeous but muted 'The American,' his adaptation of John Le Carre's recent novel, 'A Most Wanted Man,' suffers from his intentional coldness and precision. Recollecting on the film reminds me that it is an interesting yarn, but while watching it I was unable to shake that it was so ... freaking ... slow.
