Scorpions on your leg? 'Lost City of Z' director talks about filming in jungle

"The Lost City of Z," one of the year's highlights, takes place in the early 20th century and chronicles the adventures of British explorer Percy Fawcett and his search, far from the confines of London's Royal Geographical Society, for an El Dorado-like civilization hidden away in the Amazon jungle. It seemed best to meet to meet the film's writer-director, James Gray, in a location reeking of wood-paneled Gilded Age white-male privilege.

Roots cause: Kim Kardashian has sought to boost 'The Promise,' about the Armenian genocide.

Much was made of Kim Kardashian's sleek bob and curve-hugging vintage Versace dress at last week's Hollywood premiere for "The Promise." But beyond the glitz was the reason the reality star walked the red carpet, despite a case of the flu. "The Promise," a historical epic that hit theaters Friday, is the first big-budget feature film to document the atrocities of the Armenian genocide. It's a topic that hits close to home for Kardashian.

Kurt Russell can sum up his 55-year acting career in one word: "Brandy." Not the alcoholic beverage. Russell makes his own wine. He's not going to betray his beloved Pinot with another drink. No, "Brandy," the 1972 hit song, the one with the parenthetical ("You're a Fine Girl") in the title, the song about the whiskey-and-wine-serving barmaid, a "fine girl," who makes the mistake of falling in love with a sailor whose life and lover and lady is the sea.

Movie review: 'Sleight' fuses superhero story with a tough coming-of-age tale

By day, Bo (Jacob Latimore) is a street magician, wowing passersby with truly impressive sleight of hand for tips. By night, he slings party drugs in the clubs and on the streets of L.A. But all the time, he's the protective guardian of his sister, Tina (Storm Reid), just two orphaned siblings against the world. In "Sleight," co-writer/director J.D. Dillard and co-writer/producer Alex Theurer have created an unlikely superhero origin story, executed with the style, themes and budget of independent cinema.
