    David Bowie's life 'to be turned into documentary' by Amy filmmaker

    David Bowie's life could be turned into a film by legendary documentary maker Asif Kapadia. The director and his partner James Gay-Rees are currently in talks with Bowie's US lawyer. Speaking in Cannes, James tells me: “He said before he died: 'Don't ever give permission to make a documentary'. “But I think with time it might happen. I have had contact with his long-term lawyer. They are very like 'there's no rush'.” Asif, 47, and James previously said they would “kill” to make a film about the late singer's life but believed it couldn't happen. Now James is more hopeful. He adds: “We are really lucky to get some wonderful opportunities. “There are lots of people in America who want [that] property.

    Katrina Kaif proposes to Salman Khan in new Bharat clip. Check out his reaction

    Actor Katrina Kaif has shared a brand new clip from her upcoming film, Bharat. The video also features the film's male lead, actor Salman Khan. In the clip, Katrina and Salman are seen sitting outside a restaurant. She mentions how she is of the marriageable age now and has grown fond of him. Salman, who apparently plays a man of few words in the film, could only nod with a smile and say, 'Ji, madam sir'. She asks him 'Toh shaadi kab karni hai,' which knocks the wind out of his lungs and he chokes on his food. The video then shows clips from the song Aithey Aa from the film. How will Salman react to the proposal? In the film's trailer, we see him turning around right after this scene to watch

    50 Most (and Least) Popular Star Wars Characters

    Detailed Findings & Methodology Despite little screen time or relevance to the story's plot, some characters become strong fan favorites. One example is Mon Mothma. First appearing in “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi,” Mon Mothma speaks just a few lines of dialogue as she briefs members of the Rebel Alliance on plans to attack the Death Star. While Mothma has only 127 words of dialogue, something about her character captivated audiences, leading to her being featured in Episode III — although the scene was deleted from the theatrical release — and in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” Other examples of beloved minor characters include Boba Fett and Lando Calrissian. Many of the most popular

    Effie T. Brown is All In — Duly Noted — Making Moves Her Way!

    I'll do my best to try and paint a picture of film, digital and television producer Effie T. Brown, but it's hard to do with just words. Brown is the reason Podcasts were invented, meaning that her tone often reveals what she's really saying versus what you just heard her say. She's one of us.  Brown sounds like one of us and what I mean by that is that you feel that you know her because you do rather know so many strong Black and Brown women like her that listening to her speak—a mile a minute—feels like home. Gotta love this new world of instant access where a Google search is as automatic as, say, waking up and brushing your teeth. In my search to learn more details about Effie T. Brown, I

    Quentin Tarantino wins top dog award at Cannes Film Festival

    CANNES, France (AP) — Whether or not Quentin Tarantino wins the Palme d'Or this year, at least he's not coming home without a trophy. The director of the Cannes Film Festival entry “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” scooped up the top prize at the Palm Dog Awards. The awards are handed out annually to the canine stars — and human directors — of the festival's most dog-centric flicks. Tarantino surprised audience members Friday when he turned up to receive the trophy — a red dog collar — in person. He cheered pit bull Brandy, which is owned by Brad Pitt's character in the film. “I want to dedicate this to my wonderful actress Brandy. She has brought the Palm Dog home to America,” Tarantino said.
