Overseas Slice of 'Pi' Flips Hollywood Formula

life of pi tiger

LOS ANGELES - In mathematical terms, divide the circumference of the world by its diameter, and you have pi. In Hollywood terms, add a United Nations mix of ingredients and you have the blockbuster "Life of Pi." With 11 Academy Awards nominations - second only to "Lincoln" with 12 - and the sort of global box-office receipts normally reserved for superheroes, "Life of Pi" is one of the most unusual megahits ever to hit the big-screen. Approaching $600 million at the box office worldwide, the film is by far the top-grosser among the nine best-picture nominees - with $200 million more than "Les Miserables" and "Django Unchained," its closes... more

Dolby Theatre Turns Up the Volume for First Oscars

LOS ANGELES - Dolby is ready for its first date with Oscar. The Academy Awards will be broadcast from the Dolby Theatre for the first time since the audio-visual technology company plastered its name and logo on the awards venue last summer. While the 11-year-old space mostly looks the same as it has in years past, Dolby has diligently worked for the past seven months to ensure it will sound different come Feb. 24. "We looked at this from the inside out," said Ramzi Haidamus, Dolby's vice president of marketing and business development. "It was never, `Oh, here's a building. Let's put our name on it because the Oscars are here.' It was a... more

For 'Django' Producer, an Unexpected Oscar Ride

hudlin django unchained

NEW YORK - Reginald Hudlin, director of films like "Boomerang" and "House Party," never expected to be going to the Oscars as a best-picture-nominated producer of a slavery-era spaghetti Western by Quentin Tarantino. "I didn't think it was happening when it was happening," Hudlin says, laughing. The wide-ranging career of the 51-year-old filmmaker has included a three-year stint as President of Entertainment for BET, executive producing TV shows like "The Boondocks," writing the Marvel comic book "Black Panther" and directing episodes of "Modern Family" and "Everybody Hates Chris." So when Tarantino called up Hudlin to ask if he wanted t... more

Movie Review: Escape from Planet Earth

escape from planet earth

If you're a parent, chances are you've seen worse animated films than "Escape from Planet Earth." Mostly, one might add, from the same studio that released this one. But "Earth" is something of a giant - OK, mini-giant - leap forward for The Weinstein Co. It's not much funnier than most of their earlier fare. But at least it's not as ugly as "Hoodwinked," "Doogal" and the rest. Reaching that "Space Chimps"/"Planet 51" level of good-looking mediocrity is an achievement. Pop the champagne! The blue aliens of Baab have this Buzz Lightyear-style hero, "Scorch," a space rescuer-hero whose adventures are covered by live video feed from wherev... more

First Lady Plugs 'Beasts of the Southern Wild'

WASHINGTON - Michelle Obama on Wednesday gushed over the Oscar-nominated film "Beasts of the Southern Wild," calling it one of the "most powerful and most important" movies in a long time in a ringing endorsement delivered less than two weeks before this month's Academy Awards ceremony. The first lady commented during a Black History Month workshop at the White House for about 80 middle- and high-school students from Washington and New Orleans. The movie was set in Louisiana. Students saw the film, then got to question director Benh Zeitlin and actors Dwight Henry and 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. Wallis stars in the mythical tale of a 6... more
