Despite reading out entirely the wrong movie last year, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are to get a second chance at presenting the award for Best Picture at this year's Oscars.
While the Oscars of 2017 will be remembered for, quite literally, one thing, the ‘Moonlight’/’La La Land’ debacle can also perhaps be summed up in a single image. And it’s of Ryan Gosling’s face. Holding his hand to his mouth to try and keep from bursting out laughing, the ‘La La Land’ star looked very much how everyone was feeling. It seemed to say ‘someone’s going to get fired’, after ‘La La Land’ was mistakenly named Best Picture by Warren Beatty, when the winner was actually ‘Moonlight’. Of course, it’s been hailed on Twitter as being perhaps the quintessential image of the evening. ...
Rules Don’t Apply is Warren Beatty’s first movie in 15 years. Bening — who has a small role in Rules — had an up-close and personal look at Beatty’s decades-in-the-works passion project, a film he wrote, directed, produced, and also stars in as the eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes. “I’m just so happy that he made the film,” Bening told Yahoo Movies during our recent Role Recall interview (watch above).
The new romantic dramedy Rules Don’t Apply marks the first film in 15 years from Warren Beatty, who wrote, directed, produced, and stars in the picture as eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes. Just as central to the film, however, are young leads Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins. Collins (Mortal Instruments) plays Marla Mabrey, a straight-edged singer-actress from rural Virginia who moves to Hollywood in the 1950s under the “employment” of Hughes, who was infamous for keeping a small army of beautiful actresses under contract for his production studio, RKO Pictures, even if he didn’t have any films for them.
