    Moguls and Movie Stars

    TCM’s 7-hour documentary, Moguls and Movie Stars, which began running today, is a sincere, engrossing and generally very well executed history of Hollywood, focused largely on the business side---the moguls and the studios---rather than the movie stars and directors.

    New York Jets Linebacker Bart Scott To Get 'Blind Side' Styled Biopic

Every now and then Hollywood makes us pay attention to the sports world, and following the massive box office of last year's inspirational football film "The Blind Side" it's no surprise that they are looking to duplicate...

    U.S. Distributors are Popping Up Like Mushrooms - Olive Films

    Farhad Arshad's long established Olive Films, a well respected home video company, has ramped up theatrically because John Tilley, the veteran distributor whose Cinevista brought Almodovar to the U.S. in the 80s, in April of 2010 took a risk and left Strand where he was head of home video for a decade. John has extensive and diverse experience as a domestic distributor, marketer, and licensor of domestic and international independent feature films and documentaries. As Executive Vice President for Acquisitions and Theatrical Distribution for Olive Films, he is taking the well established video distributor into the theatrical arena, opening ...

Should he decide to bite the bullet, prod...
