"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

"Cats"trailer tease doubles as its first FYC ad

Universal is not fooling around withCats.There's a (presumably) gargantuan budget on the line but an insanely high level of brand awareness will help it turn a profit and they surely know that Oscar buzz wouldn't hurt toward that goal,either.This promo for the teaser (due Friday),which has no actual footage from the movie,is playing just like an FYC ad for the film's cast and crew...

Chita Rivera Awards,Cher,and Film Choreography.

by Nathaniel R

Isnt It Romantic?

Did you know that Oscar once had a category for dance?Well,"Dance Direction"to be particular.Which is not quite choreography but close.The category was held for three years and discontinued after the 1937 Academy Awards.Despite the first three to four decades of Oscar ceremonies arriving in a time when movie musicals were plentiful,the Academy Awards never instituted a choreography category.The sole example,apart from Dance Direction was a special Oscar for Jerome Robbins forWest Side Story(1961),a redundant trophy in a way since he also shared the Best Director Oscar win due to his choreography and dance direction on that immortal classic (currently being remade).

At any rate,the Chita Rivera Awards,which sprung back to life three years ago (they were once called the Fred and Adele Astaire Awards)  DO give awards to movies for their dance sequences in two separate categories,in addition to their primary focus which is honoring Broadway and Off Broadway achievements...

"West Side Story"Casting Pt 1: Meet the Sharks

by Nathaniel R

David Alvarez will be taking on George Chakiris's Oscar winning role of "Bernardo"in the remake of WEST SIDE STORY

We'll have to take the West Side Story casting,which is now complete with filming to begin this summer,in two parts.It's aLOTto process.Though we are skeptical of the project given thatWest Side Story(1961) is so perfect despite its imperfections (you know how art works),but the material itself is so brilliant that perhaps we'll get two classics for the price of one?

With the casting complete,meet the Sharks...
There's a lot of Broadway talent (especially fromHamilton,On Your Feet,Carousel),some people from the Miami ballet world,and even some who've doneWest Side Storybefore in other forms.Links go to their instagram pages if we could find them...

Howard Keel Centennial: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954)

We're celebrating music man Howard Keel's centennial this week.Here's Lynn Lee...

In many ways,Seven Brides for Seven Brothers(1954) marked the peak of Keel's MGM career,coming after his breakout role inAnnie,Get Your Gunand his star turns inShowboatand the less-successful but still-classicKiss Me,Kate!Keel's film career would fade in the years that followed,although he continued to enjoy success on the stage and in later life would find TV fame with his role on "Dallas."  It wasSeven Brides,though,that captured Keel in his screen prime as an appealing and charismatic musical actor who managed to make a problematic character (to say the least) surprisingly compelling.

Full disclosure:Seven Brideswas one of my favorite movies growing up,and remains one of my all-time favorite musicals.  As a young child I loved it even more thanWest Side StoryandThe Sound of Musicbecause it felt like ahappiermovie than the other two...
