Batman v Superman R-rated edition heading to Blu-ray


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will get itself a gritty, violent, R-rated alternate version – at least, on Blu-ray.

The film’s theatrical release carries a standard PG-13 rating. But in its latest bulletin, the MPAA (America’s de facto censor board) revealed that a home ent version of Zack Snyder’s superhero battle movie – entitled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition – has been rated R.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Before you think this involves Clark Kent exposing his man of steel, it’s been given the rating for “sequences of violence”. This makes sense, given what we’ve heard from Snyder and his team. The director told us he is a “fanatic” admirer of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns comic series, which took Bats into an extremely dark and brooding place.

The alternate edition may also in part be down to Deadpool’s record-breaking success at the box-office, which has left many studio executives stroking their chins and pondering a new strategy. The received wisdom for tentpole blockbusters had been to aim for a PG-13 rating, which would ensure the widest possible audience.

An R-rating – which requires under-17s to be accompanied by an adult – has long been seen as financially prohibitive. But the emphatically R-rated Deadpool has surprised everyone by earning half a billion dollars worldwide in less than two weeks, and subsequently thrown the superhero rulebook out of the super-window.

What the “Ultimate Edition” of DC’s big blockbuster bust-up will look like remains to be seen. But given the theatrical version has a running time of 2 hours, 31 minutes, the R-rated edition could be broaching the three-hour mark.

In any case, we’ll see what the PG-13 looks like on March 25, when Batman v Superman is released.

MAKING THE GRAMMYCAM, AWARDS SEASON’S NEWEST MEME MACHINE


Source: MAKING THE GRAMMYCAM, AWARDS SEASON’S NEWEST MEME MACHINE

What’s a GrammyCam?” you ask? Let us enlighten you. The GrammyCam is a device in the base of the Grammy trophy itself that will be live-streaming audio and video footage throughout tonight’s telecast, leaving Grammys coverage literally in the hands of whoever is on stage. Yes, that’s right, this year you’ll be able to experience the Grammys from the POV of those small gold gramophones handed out to winning artists.

MAKING THE GRAMMYCAM, AWARDS SEASON’S NEWEST MEME MACHINE


Skip article header, Skip to: Start of Article

AWARDS SHOWS ARE usually too polished and stiff to really have spontaneity. Unless Jennifer Lawrence is involved, there’s rarely room for surprises. But this year the folks at the Grammys have decided to welcome just a little bit of chaos into the proceedings—courtesy of the GrammyCam.

“What’s a GrammyCam?” you ask? Let us enlighten you. The GrammyCam is a device in the base of the Grammy trophy itself that will be live-streaming audio and video footage throughout tonight’s telecast, leaving Grammys coverage literally in the hands of whoever is on stage. Yes, that’s right, this year you’ll be able to experience the Grammys from the POV of those small gold gramophones handed out to winning artists.

And aside from the fact that you could know how it feels to be held in the hands of Taylor Swift or Kendrick Lamar, the GrammyCam also has the potential to deliver Internet gold. Just imagine all of the meme-able footage this will bring to the Grammys: backstage banter, lip sync battles and dance-offs, the unfortunate angles of famous people’s faces. All these are possible thanks to the GrammyCam.

“With the simplest idea of placing a camera at the base of the Grammy Award itself, we were immediately hyped about the possibility of offering fans the ultimate point of view,” says Grammy Awards CMO Evan Greene. “The evolution of social media into Snapchat and Periscope proves that people want that first-person experience. This was a natural progression of our focus on fan engagement.”

If nothing else, the Grammys should be applauded for their bravery. A live feed is a dangerous thing in the hands of celebrities. Remember Elisabeth Moss on E!’s Mani Cam?

image.gifUnlike the Mani Cam, though, the GrammyCam really does feel like it’s about inviting fans into the moment, rather than just finding a new way to ask “What are you wearing?!” It’s impossible to say what those moments are going to look like (one-man media circus Kanye West will be there, after all), but they’ll be compelling to watch nonetheless.

Check out the behind-the-scenes video above to see how Grammy craftsmen and made the GoPro-camera-equipped trophy possible.

How we approach teaching in the Screen/Stage acting department

The best way to sum up the ethos of the Acting Department is to call it a “rainbow” approach, in that we give you a little bit of everything, from every reputable school of thought. That’s why you’ll find that our teachers cover everything from Method Acting and Stanislavski to Meisner and Augusto Boal, as well as using their own experience to illuminate a technique.

Call it serendipity! Yes, because I stumbled upon this while searching for something totally unrelated, and guess what? It has been of immense value, so I decided to share… As usual. *winks*

Well, it goes thus:

One of the most inspiring lines in cinema history had to be “My ambition far exceeds my talents,” said by Johnny Depp’s character George Chung.

Ambition is the most important tool to achieving success,
overriding both talent and resources by far.

An ambitious attitude can lead anyone to triumph and
satisfaction, regardless of what is put in front of them.
To have the will, the dream and the courage to be on top of the world will get you a lot farther in life than any skill you can possibly possess.

Having talent means nothing if you have no ambition behind it to work your ass of at any given point of the
day…

The Daily Dahlia

It’s been almost a full year now since I signed with my agent, but the thing about querying is, if you did it for long enough, I’m not sure you ever forget what it was like.

Me? I did it on and off for four years.

I got something like ten rejections on my first ms before I stopped (not that I’d normally advise giving up after that low a number, it’s just that it was far more of a “market timing” thing – NA! – than anything else), fifty before shelving the second one (what, until my most recent ms, was “the book of my heart”), and then was very lucky to find my agent through The Writer’s Voice contest with my third, for which I only sent about five queries.

That adds up to a whole lotta two things: 1) Research 2) Rejections

When I queried the first…

220px-48th_Academy_Awards

Voting has closed.  Price-Waterhouse is counting the ballots.  On Sunday night, we will find out who won the 86th annual Academy Awards.  On Monday, most people will forget who won, except for the people who make it their business to never forget (Harvey Weinstein, I’m looking at you.)  And given the hurt feelings, rivalries, and “How-the-fuck-could-they-ignore-XYZ-but-award-ABC” reactions that will become inevitable over time, I need to remind you guys of something really important:

THE OSCARS DO NOT MATTER.

That’s right.  You heard me.  I, the person who in fifth grade memorized every winner in just about all the major categories, am here to remind you all that these awards do not matter.  Sure, they matter in that it’s fun, and that getting them means you’ll be king/queen for a day, and you have a beautifully designed trophy to put on your mantle.  But seriously, whether or not the person…

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – When a man says he’ll be back, he means it. Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed filming of the next installment of the “Terminator” film series will be shot in San Francisco.

According to an interview with the former Governor of California with TheArnoldFans.com, filming will begin sometime in the middle of April in New Orleans, Los Angeles and some in San Francisco.

No characters or storyline have been officially revealed, however, Schwarzenegger is the first to be cast in the film. “I’m really looking forward to that because as you know, the last time when they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor and so I couldn’t be in that movie but now I’m back again and they are very excited about having me in the film.” Schwarzenegger tells TheArnoldFans.com.

Filming of “Terminator: Genesis,” the project’s current title, is pending on permits that…

Sunday was one of those days where you just throw yourself into life and go with it. It began a few weeks earlier with a proposal through Instagram…

Hey, would you be interested in being in my movie?

Not the sort of proposal that comes along every day. Naturally I was curious and naturally I wanted more details. I had to be sure I wasn’t about to agree to be in just ANY movie. What if it was porn!?! No, I was just asked to play an extra in a scene. I would just have to eat ice cream at a park while the actors ‘acted’ around me. Sounds simple and sounds like fun.

MarkWell, it was, and I was asked if Mark wanted to be part of it also. We could be sitting together in the park and be friends of the lead actors.

Don’t Trust One Source Talent

I am sorry to say I am one of the gullible people who got tricked into joining. I already had professional head shots but they told me they were not good enough and I needed to get better ones, of course for a small fee of 800 bucks plus the 49.99 it cost to start. I was a bit skeptical but looking at their website and the offices around the U.S made it look believable. They said they would send me good gigs that I can try for and that there data base was filled with different types of acting opportunities to choose from. Lets just say this was a  fallacy the only type of jobs they sent me was to be an audience extra which was unpaid I might add. The only gigs they had available was musicals and I told them when I…
