Carolyn Giardina recounts the reasoning of Christopher Nolan on the sound of "Interstellar." As the director explains, “I’ve always loved films that approach sound in an impressionistic way and that is an unusual approach for a mainstream blockbuster, but I feel it's the right approach for this experiential film." And, he adds, "“Many of the filmmakers I’ve admired over the years have used sound in bold and adventurous ways. I don’t agree with the idea that you can only achieve clarity through dialogue. Clarity of story, clarity of emotions — I  try to achieve that in a very layered way using all the different things at my disposal — picture and sound.” THR

walking dead season 5 spoilers daryl carol consumed entertainment 13579086 story

"Caryl" fans around the globe are breathing a sigh of relief Sunday night, as the most recent episode of "The Walking Dead" that focused on Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) kept both characters alive and ready to fight (and hook up) another day. Did you accurately predict the answers to our prediction contest questions for Episode 6, titled "Consumed"?

According to Gold Derby's exclusive racetrack odds, our readers gave Carol 10/1 odds of being killed off next, followed by Daryl with 12/1 odds of dying. Since nobody met the grim reaper in this episode, that means all of the users who predicted "No One" would die earned points based on those correct predictions.

dancing with the stars alfonso ribeiro injured witney carson dwts

In last week's "Dancing With the Stars" quarterfinals, America voted out one of Alfonso Ribeiro's top competitors, former ballerina Lea Thompson, so it should be smooth sailing for him on the way to the mirror ball trophy, right? Maybe not. An already unpredictable season could be upended yet again, because Ribeiro was injured while training for Monday night's semifinals, calling into question his ability to compete. Is it time to change your predictions?

Hollywood Film Awards entertainment news Johnny Depp

Truth be told, the Hollywood Film Awards telecast wasn't the "trainwreck TV" ballyhooed by Variety and some other media outlets. Sure, there were lots of messy bits, but, let's be honest, those were the best parts – like Johnny Depp appearing plastered when babbling and swaying up at the podium while struggling to introduce documentarian Shep Gordon. Or Jennifer Lopez screwing up the title of "How to Train Your Dragon 2" by substituting the word "Drain," then looking shocked as she realized her inadvertent sexual innuendo on live national TV.

"I'm a realist … sometimes you're popular, sometimes you're not popular. Nobody showed up at my house that I remember and put a gun to my head and dragged me out of the house and said, 'You're going to do this for a living.' It's on me," said "Birdman" Oscar-hopeful Michael Keaton on fickle Hollywood fame. He and co-star Edward Norton sat down to discuss their acting philosophies at the recent AFI Fest.
