Director Apologizes for Disastrous '127 Hours' Screening

September 14, 2010 03:02:18 GMT


Oscar winner Danny Boyle was forced to placate angry cinemagoers at the screening of his new movie at the Toronto International Film Festival - after organizers issued too many tickets for the event. The "Slumdog Millionaire" director debuted his latest film "127 Hours" - starring James Franco as mountaineer Aron Ralston, who was forced to saw off his lower right arm after a boulder fell onto him while he was climbing in Utah in 2003 - at the Canadian festival on Saturday, September 11.

However, the event was dogged with problems after hundreds of fans and critics were turned away because the venue for the screening was too small to accommodate everyone. And once the lucky 500 guests were seated, the screening was marred by technical issues - and was more than an hour late beginning.

Josh Duhamel only agreed to strip to his underwear for the poster of his new movie "Life as We Know It" if studio marketing bosses photoshopped his weak calf. The "Transformers" star didn't mind revealing almost all for the promotional picture - but he wanted to make sure his "chicken legs" would be given a little computer-enhanced definition.

In an upcoming interview with BlogTalkRadio.com, he says, "I was like, 'OK dude, I'll do the underwear but please make my right calf look a little bit bigger.' I ruptured my Achilles (heel), like, six years ago and it never grew back, so it's like half the size of the other one."

Quentin Tarantino Denies Nepotism at Venice Film Fest

September 14, 2010 02:09:29 GMT


Director Quentin Tarantino has dismissed accusations he convinced his fellow jury members to award his ex-girlfriend Sofia Coppola the top honor at the Venice Film Festival this weekend. The 39 year old scooped the Golden Lion on Saturday, September 11 for her movie "Somewhere", which tells story of a bad-boy actor whose life is changed after his young daughter comes to stay.

Tarantino chaired the Italian festival's jury - but local journalists claim he favored Coppola, who he dated in the early 2000s, and one of his mentors, Monte Hellman, who was handed a lifetime achievement prize. However, the moviemaker has hit back at his critics, insisting the winners' work was all he focused on - not his personal relationships with the nominees.
