Hollywood Studios Haven’t Been Paid by China in Months (Exclusive)

Standard

THR has reached out to the China Film Group for comment. The MPAA can ask the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to officially investigate whether China is violating the WTO agreement, but that would be a dramatic step. It’s not known whether such a request has been made, although the USTR is working with the MPAA in addressing the issue via conversations with Chinese officials.

Hollywood’s Highest Paid Starlets

Michael Kittrell’s three-minute heated video response to an episode of “South Park,” in which he bemoans being called a “fat ginger,” garnered more than 34 million YouTube views, and was parodied may times over. Even the writers of “South Park” took notice and responded back with a clip of their own, animating Michael and some of the famous lines from his rant, including, “It really irritates me when people say that redheads don’t have souls. Because we do have souls alright?” And: “I go to church. I’m a Christian. You don’t know me. You’re not God.” “Hollywood Hillbillies” follows Michael, his “Mema,” Delores Hughes, and various other family members as they move from Grayson, Ga.

Hollywood Blockbusters Losing Luster: They’re Off 13% at Foreign Box Office

Standard

Three films produced in China — “So Young,” “Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons” and “Lost in Thailand” — cracked the top 20 films for the year’s first half. None did last year. It’s not that the Chinese are exporting hits — all three did nearly all their business at home — but they’re doing enough domestically to make the list of leaders. The Chinese box office grew by 36 percent to become the No. 2 global film market in 2012, and it is still expanding.

Barack Hollywood Obama: How The Media Sold the President As Populist, Not Elitist

Bill Maher, Super Flack These figures did not count how Obama’s Super PAC “Priorities USA” reveled in three very large Hollywood donations: $2 million from DreamWorks mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg, $1 million from actor Morgan Freeman, and $1 million from Bill Maher, the toxic, atheist bomb-thrower with his weekly Real Time show on HBO. Maher didn’t just give at “the office” by trashing Republicans on pay-cable TV. He brought a large check onstage during a standup comedy performance in San Jose on February 23 and none of the networks cared. They could ask if Donald Trump was going to embarrass and distract from Romney, but they wouldn’t make that connection with a bigot like Maher and Obama. Just days before, all three networks rang the national alarm bells over how “far to the right” Republicans were tilting when Santorum Super PAC backer Foster Friess had repeated a very old, and equally innocent, joke about Bayer aspirin being used as birth control.

Utah landscape creates backdrop for Hollywood magic

I read that you asked Jude Law if you should commit to “The Bridge.” Is that true? We were shooting a film called “Dom Hemingway” with director Richard Shepard in the south of France and we were chatting about what was next. I told him I got the call to do “The Bridge” and he said ‘Wow, wait a minute! I know that series and it’s fantastic.’ I had a great time doing that film with those guys. You starred on Showtime’s “Weeds,” so “The Bridge” is your second cable series. Do you find that cable gives you more freedom than network TV?

‘The Bridge’s’ Demian Bichir: Hollywood Always Throws in a Little Filth When Depicting Mexico

While southern Utah’s dramatic landscape may be more recognizable in Hollywood films, northern Utah has also experienced cinematic fame. The original 1984 “Footloose,” while set in a small Midwestern town, was actually filmed in Utah County. The still-operating Lehi Roller Mills grain house even makes an appearance in the Kevin Bacon film. The baseball film ” The Sandlot ” was also filmed along the Wasatch Front. The movie was mostly produced in the Rose Park and Glendale areas of Salt Lake City, but several scenes were filmed in the surrounding area.

‘Cole Trickle’ just short of Hollywood ending

“? I look and I see ol’ Cole Trickle coming. ? He did a great job. He pushed me straight, and we were able to stay connected, because we were three-wide, and make it back to the start-finish line.” In the movie, of course, Trickle wins the big Daytona race in the end.
