How Hollywood’s Latest Tech Tool Enhanced Oscar-Winning ‘The Jungle Book’ and ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ (Video)

1 March 2017 1:48 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With its whiter whites and blacker blacks, High Dynamic Range (Hdr) is transforming the way we watch movies. Two recent examples from Technicolor are the Oscar-winning “The Jungle Book” (Best Visual Effects) and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (Best Costumes), in which the wider dynamic range heightened the use of color and light.

For Technicolor supervising digital colorist, Peter Doyle, who worked on the “Harry Potter” standalone, he’s become more of a finishing artist, thanks to Hdr and management software advances from FilmLight (watch the video below and also on Vimeo and Technicolor’s YouTube Channel).

What Hollywood Wants from Hdr: Technicolor Surveys Industry Perceptions (Exclusive)

With “Fantastic Beasts,” Doyle was able to take advantage of the extra dynamic range to make the experience more visceral. “There was an assortment of characters that would emanate their own light,” he told IndieWire. “It was an intense light source with a physicality to it. »

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Wuthering Heights,’ Philippe Garrel, Best Picture Winners & More

23 February 2017 5:59 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

The many adaptations of Wuthering Heights — from Buñuel to Andrea Arnold to Rivette — are highlighted in a new series.

Metrograph

A restoration of Philippe Garrel’s Les Hautes Solitudes begins playing.

Films from Wilder, Scorsese, Minnelli, and Hitchcock play as part of a Best Picture series.

Harry Potter Actress Is Stripping Down for Playboy

16 February 2017 4:33 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A former member of the Harry Potter family is getting ready to shun her clothes and pose nude in the pages of Playboy. But it's not Emma Watson promoting Beauty and the Beast. It's Scarlett Byrne, who played Slytherin Pansy Parkinson in three of the Harry Potter movies, including 2009's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, 2010's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and 2011's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. She will be getting naked in the name of feminism. And she has this to say about her latest endeavor.

"I'm very proud to be a part of the March/April issue of Playboy. I penned a short essay along with my pictorial titled, "The Feminist Mystique". A big thank you to @Playboy, the creative team, and @cooperbhefner for such a unique opportunity. #NakedIsNormal"

Harry Potter Stars' Lives Outside of the Movies: The Good, the Bad and the Heartbreaking

16 February 2017 10:09 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Life outside of Hogwarts has been very different for the Harry Potter stars. It has been challenging for many of them to maintain a normal, or normal-lish life after growing up in the spotlight and helping to bring a $7.7 billion movie franchise to life. Some battled personal turmoil during and after filming. Others struggled to find other acting work. But some also became even more famous. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter): In a 2011 interview with GQ magazine, the actor revealed that when he was 18 and filming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth film in the eight-part series, he had an alcohol problem. "I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy »

Harry Potter Actress Scarlett Byrne Strips Naked for Playboy

16 February 2017 5:35 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Did someone yell "diffindo"?! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince actress Scarlett Byrne appears in the first issue of Playboy to feature nudes since the magazine banned them a year ago, and it appears someone has torn off her clothes. Though no magic was used in this photo shoot (we assume), it's safe to say the actress certainly didn't mind letting fans know that #NakedIsNormal. In one black-and-white photo Byrne, who played Pansy Parkinson in the wizarding world, stands on staircase in front of a gorgeous window wearing but a black top. She stares seductively into the camera, leaving little to the imagination as she puts her bare butt on display. In another black-and-white photo shared on »
