With Sam Mendes presenting '1917' as if it unfolds in a single take, what are some of the best examples of this trick in the history of Hollywood?
Michael Keaton will forever be associated with superhero movies. He skewered the genre in Oscar-winner ‘Birdman’ and will play a villain in this summer’s ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ but he will always be best known for playing Batman.
Period wilderness drama ‘The Revenant’ may be the film that finally wins Leonardo DiCaprio an Oscar, but crewmembers have revealed the nightmare filming conditions that apparently plagued the production. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, behind-the-scenes staff called the shoot “a living hell”, admitting that several quit or were fired by the director, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Oscar winner for ‘Birdman’. Iñárritu is clearly an immensely talented and technically-gifted director, but with the budget expected to top $135million (£86.5m) and talk of backstage rumblings, there is inevitably gossip of a ‘Heaven’s Gate’-style scenario, the catastrophic 1980 flop on which director Michael Cimino, freshly-minted Oscar winner for ‘The Deer Hunter’, let his ego and perfectionism turn the movie into one of Hollywood’s most infamous cautionary tales.
