Show them the VHS copies!
After the countless allegations of whitewashing and cultural misappropriation in Cameron Crowe's Aloha, Emma Stone is speaking out on her eye-opening experience.
Cameron Crowe's latest film, Aloha, hit theaters this past weekend and, unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Emma Stone's casting is far more interesting than the movie itself. The filmmaker has released a letter online to defend Stone and apologize for the whole ordeal.
Cameron Crowe has really been thinking hard about a potential Say Anything sequel.
Is Aloha as bad as everyone says it is? Why don't you watch the opening 8 minutes and figure out for yourself.
With Aloha hitting theaters this weekend, it seems like as good a time as any to countdown our favorite Cameron Crowe films.
After a couple of days worth of backlash, Sony has finally responded with a statement addressing claims that Aloha is lacking both ethinc diversity or respect. Their statement was short and to the point, and can be read within.
Cameron Crowe’s island romance has already come under fire for a perceived lack of diversity in its culturally diverse setting of Hawai’i. Now it appears that Aloha is in trouble again for being culturally insensitive, though this time the source is unexpected.
Cameron Crowe's Aloha is running into problems with native Hawaiians who wonder why more of them weren't cast in the film.
Rachel McAdams and Bradley Cooper hash out the details of their breakup in a clip from their new movie Aloha.
We've known it for years as Cameron Crowe's Untitled Hawaiian Romantic Comedy, but the Almost Famous director's latest feature now has a name - Aloha - and a brand new trailer to trailer to go with it.
The Untitled Cameron Crowe Project will star Bradley Cooper as Brian Gilcrest, a lauded military contractor who travels to the US Space program in Honolulu, Hawaii to revisit the site of his greatest professional triumph. While there, he reunites with an old flame (Rachel McAdams), but unexpectedly begins to develop feelings for the tenacious Air Force soldier (Emma Stone) assigned to work with him.
It sounds like much more of a screwball comedy than I’d originally thought, sounding like the premise for some 1960s sitcom that tried to cash in on the success of I Dream of Jeannie. There aren’t enough of those made anymore, and while Krasinski may or may not have a large role, he’ll still be able to adapt to whatever the tone of the film is.
Can we all just take a second to appreciate how wonderful it is to never have to worry about seeing Bill Murray in a movie like Larger Than Life again? I guess it’s technically possible but doubtful anytime soon. Since he’s already worked with directors such as George Clooney and Wes Anderson this year, I guess there’s no harm in him throwing a Cameron Crowe movie on the pile.
Based on an original screenplay written by Crowe, the new film stars Cooper as a defense contractor who is stationed in Hawaii and working to set up a weapons satellite launch. In a twist, however, Cooper's character is actually trying to " scuttle the launch," and he teams up with an Air Force pilot (Stone) to do so.
Unfortunately for us, Crowe is being insanely tight-lipped about his next venture, but we have managed to glean some details of his follow-up to the 2011 schmaltz-fest that was We Bought a Zoo. The untitled Crowe project is said to be a lover story similar in tone to his two most popular pictures, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous.
McBride will co-star with Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams in the drama, but the film’s plot is being kept under wraps for now. That doesn’t mean there aren’t clues and speculations abound however.
When Cooper was cast opposite Stone I complained that it was another in a long string of age-inappropriate relationships for Cooper onscreen, coming just after he romanced 15-years-younger Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook. McAdams, on the other hand, is only three years younger than Cooper, which makes it much more the kind of matchup we can get behind. Of course, given that McAdams is reportedly playing the ex it's clear that age is just a number here, but it's a step at least
You may still think of Bradley Cooper as the handsome, possibly douchey guy who's starred in the Hangover movies and unsuccessfully tried to get serious with this September's The Words, but he's about to have a serious breakthrough thanks to his role in The Silver Linings Playbook, due out next month
An adaptation of David Sheff’s best selling book “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction" has been in development for the last four years, but now it looks like it's moving forward - and with a brilliant director at the helm. Cameron Crowe, who most recently made the heartwarming drama We Bought A Zoo with Matt Damon, is looking to direct a feature version of Sheff's story.
