Things you never knew about 'The Last of the Mohicans' 

Moviefone logo
Has there been a movie couple in the past quarter century as steamy as Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe in "The Last of the Mohicans"? Released 25 years ago this week (on September 25, 1992), Michael Mann's pre-Revolutionary adventure saga never got Day-Lewis out of his buckskin or Stowe out of her corset, yet their smoldering glances and passionate embraces sparked more sexual chemistry than screen couples in more explicit movies have displayed. "Mohicans" was a hit that transformed Day-Lewis into a Hollywood leading man, proved Mann could do historical epics as well as contemporary crime dramas, and put Wes Studi (who played the villain, Magua) on the map as a character actor. Still, there's a lot that fans of the movie haven't seen -- the production's off-camera turmoil, the missing love scene, and the secretly prankish side of the usually intense Day-Lewis. Here's what really happened in the feral backwoods. 1. There really was a Col. Munro who led the British forces at Fort William Henry when the French attacked it in 1757. James Fenimore Cooper drew much of his 1826 novel from accounts of the siege's survivors, but the rest of the characters were his own inventions. 2. Mann drew more from the 1936 Randolph Scott movie version of "Last of the Mohicans" -- a movie he'd enjoyed as a kid -- than from Fenimore Cooper's novel. Not only is the book a notorious slog to read, but it's also largely an apology for white appropriation of Indian lands, one that wouldn't have sat well with post-"Dances With Wolves" audiences. 3. Fortunately, in Mann's research, he found the diary of Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, a French explorer who served as an officer during the siege. His detailed, witty, sarcastic account of the event served as a bracing counterpoint to Fenimore Cooper's version. 4. The unspoiled woodlands of rural New York in 1757 were played by the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina of 1991. Mann spent a reported $6 million just to build the Fort William Henry set to historical specifications. 5. Day-Lewis brought his usual Method obsessiveness to the part of Hawkeye. Before he came to the set, he spent six months with a trainer building his upper-body strength. In the North Carolina forest, he spent another month learning Daniel Boone-type survival skills, including hunting, skinning animals, building canoes, wielding a tomahawk, and loading and firing a 12-pound flintlock rifle. 6. Like a real frontiersman, he brought his rifle everywhere, even to Christmas dinner. And while some of the actors and crew spent their downtime listening to Walkmans and smoking Marlboros, Day-Lewis made a point of avoiding modern technology and rolling his own smokes. Explaining what drew him to the role, he said, "I liked the idea of a man who had not been touched by 20th-century neurosis, a life that isn't drawn inwards." 7. Russell Means was 52 when he made his big-screen debut as Chingachgook. He was already famous, however, for his activism as the national director of the American Indian Movement. 8. Wes Studi, too, had been an Indian activist before turning to acting later in life. (Before "Mohicans," his most prominent credit was as the Indian mystic in Jim Morrison's visions in Oliver Stone's "The Doors.") Both Means and Studi had been involved in the Wounded Knee occupation in 1973, 18 years before they reunited on the "Mohicans" set as antagonists. 9. Much of the secondary romance, between Alice Munro (Jodhi May) and Chingachgook's son Uncas (Eric Schweig) didn't make it into the movie. It was rumored that there was a more explicit love scene between them, cut at the insistence of the 17-year-old actress's mother, who chaperoned May throughout the shoot. Schweig, however, has said that their scene was more "puppy love" than its reputation suggests, and that Mann de-emphasized the Alice-Uncas romance in order not to distract from the main love story between Hawkeye and Cora Munro (Stowe). 10. Hawkeye and Cora may have been mentally undressing each other on screen, but when the cameras stopped, Day-Lewis and Stowe were busy trying to punk each other. Their practical-joke war started with food fights and escalated to a bloody car crash, faked by Day-Lewis and his chauffeur, for Stowe to stumble upon. 11. Mann was notoriously as much a perfectionist as his star, supposedly shooting up to 20 takes of many scenes and keeping the night-shoot crew working from dusk until dawn. An oft-repeated (but apocryphal) anecdote from the set had Mann, at the end of a long night, complaining about an orange light messing up his shot, only to have a crew member respond, "That's the sun, Michael." 12. By the end of the shoot, Mann had gone $7 million over his $33 million budget. Oscar-winning costume designer James Acheson had left the production, citing creative differences with Mann, to be replaced by Elsa Zamparelli. 13. In post-production, Mann scrapped composer Trevor Jones' electronic score and decided he wanted a more traditional orchestral score. Jones reworked his score but didn't have time to finish it, and Mann had to hire composer Randy Edelman to complete the music. 14. After the shoot, Day-Lewis had a hard time shaking the character. Complaining of hallucinations and claustrophobia (he was no longer used to spending much time indoors), the actor turned to a French holistic doctor, who prescribed him a potion of mystery ingredients, which Day-Lewis assumed to be a concoction of herbs and alcohol. Whatever it was, it seemed to do the trick. 15. "Last of the Mohicans" earned $75.5 million at the North American box office, making it the 17th biggest hit of 1992. 16. Despite critical raves, the film earned just one Oscar nomination. The category was Best Sound, and "Mohicans" won. 17. Mann has yet to make another movie set before the 20th century. After "Mohicans," he said, "My next movie will have flat floors and people who wear zippers. I've had it with nature and stuff that falls off, everything tied together with thongs."... read more

Emily Blunt takes on the titular role in this movie, which is set in London 25 years after Julie Andrews' original. Lin-Manuel Miranda plays lamplighter Jack -- apprentice to our old friend Bert -- and he presented during the Oscars before the clip aired on TV.

Here's your first look at Mary Poppins Returns. - Mary Poppins (@MaryPoppins) March 5, 2018 "Mary Poppins Returns," directed by Rob Marshall, co-stars Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson, Nathanael Saleh, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, and Angela Lansbury. Here's the movie's synopsis: "Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives." "Mary Poppins 2" is scheduled to open in theaters on Christmas Day 2018. Check out the first photos from the movie over here. Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook. Watch Now... read more

25 facts you didn't know about the Oscars 

Moviefone logo
It's almost here -- the 90th Academy Awards finally airs this Sunday, and we're counting down the minutes. We're bringing you some of the best (and, um, craziest) facts about Hollywood's biggest awards show. From the first Best Actor winner, to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 25 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars. 1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal (above), who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old. 2. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, won Best Director for "Gigi" (1958). 3. Nameplates for all potential winners are prepared ahead of time; in 2014, the Academy made 215 of them! 4. The first Academy Awards were presented in 1929 at a private dinner of about 270 people. It was first televised in 1953, and now the Oscars ceremony can be seen in more than 200 countries. 5. Only three women have received Best Director nominations, while Kathryn Bigelow is the lone winner for "The Hurt Locker" (2009). Interestingly, Bigelow beat out ex-husband James Cameron, who was nominated for the technological wonder "Avatar." 6. At 82, Christopher Plummer (above) became the oldest person to win an Academy Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in "Beginners" (2010) opposite Ewan McGregor. 7. Peter Finch ("Network") and Heath Ledger ("The Dark Knight") are the only actors to be awarded an Academy Award posthumously. Ledger's Oscar -- and his entire fortune -- was gifted to his young daughter, Matilda. 8. With her nomination last year for "Into the Woods," Meryl Streep has been nominated a record 19 times. She has won three Best Actress Oscars -- the last for "The Iron Lady" (2011). 9. Katharine Hepburn won a record four Academy Awards -- all Best Actress Oscars -- the last for "On Golden Pond" (1981), which starred another Hollywood legend, Henry Fonda. 10. The first Oscars were held at the famous Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Today, the ceremony takes place at the Dolby Theatre (around the corner from the Roosevelt), its tenth venue over the decades. 11. Jack Nicholson (above) is the most-nominated male actor, receiving 12 Oscar nominations beginning with 1969's "Easy Rider." His three wins tie him with Walter Brennan and Daniel Day-Lewis. 12. Oscar statuettes are technically property of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. As a result, before an Academy Award winner or his estate can sell his Oscar, he must first offer to sell it to the Academy first for one dollar (yes, one dollar). This, of course, is to discourage winners from selling the award for financial gain. Oscars awarded before 1950, however, are not bound by this agreement. In 2011, Orson Welles' 1941 Oscar for "Citizen Kane" was sold at auction for over $800,000 in 2011! 13. Only three films have won all of the "Big Five" Academy Award categories: "It Happened One Night" (1934), "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975), and "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991). The "Big Five" categories are: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay (either adapted or original). 14. In 1940, the LA Times broke the Academy's embargo and published the names of all the Oscar winners prior to the ceremony. As a result, the Academy introduced the sealed envelope tradition that is present to this day. 15. The legendary Alfred Hitchcock was nominated five times for Best Director, but never took home the Oscar. 16. "Ben-Hur," "Titanic," and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (above) are the most successful films in Oscar history, each winning a shocking 11 Oscars. "Return of the King" is the only one to win every award for which it was nominated. 17. Composer John Williams is the most-nominated living person, having earned 49 Oscar nominations throughout his storied career, beginning with 1967's "Valley of the Dolls." 18. The longest Oscar acceptance speech ever given was five and half minutes by 1943 Best Actress winner Greer Garson ("Mrs. Miniver"). 19. Oscar statuettes were made from painter plaster during World War II due to metal shortages. After the war ended, these Oscars were replaced with the traditional statues. 20. Bob Hope hosted the ceremony a whopping 19 times, making him the most frequent Oscar host. 21. With his Best Actor nomination for "American Sniper," Bradley Cooper (above) has now been nominated for an acting Oscar three years in a row. That's one shy of the record for most consecutive acting nods, held by the late Marlon Brando. 22. The first Best Actor awards were given to Emil Jannings for "The Last Command" and "The Way of All Flesh" (yes, both!). 23. At the 29th Academy Awards ceremony in 1957, the Best Foreign Language Film category was introduced. Previously, the best foreign language film was simply acknowledge with a Special Achievement Award. 24. In 1999, Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench were both nominated for playing Queen Elizabeth in "Elizabeth" and "Shakespeare in Love." Dench won Best Supporting Actress despite only appearing in the film for a total of eight minutes. Meanwhile, Blanchett lost the Best Actress Oscar to Gwyneth Paltrow -- also for "Shakespeare in Love." 25. Although "Boyhood" (2014) was filmed over 12 years, it only took a total of 39 days to film.

14 Things You Never Knew About 'Groundhog Day' 

Moviefone logo
It's fitting that you've probably seen "Groundhog Day" over and over and over again. Released 25 years ago this week (on February 12, 1993), the comedy that sees Bill Murray trapped in a mysterious time loop and forced to relive the same day countless times has long since become a treasured favorite and a highlight of the careers of Murray and everyone else involved in it. Still, as many times as you've seen it, there's much you may not know about "Groundhog Day," including the stormy behind-the-scenes conflict that destroyed the long and successful partnership between Murray and director Harold Ramis. Read on, then go back and read it again. 1. Like Ramis and Murray, screenwriter Danny Rubin hailed from Chicago. After he moved to Hollywood and found an agent, his "Groundhog Day" script landed on Ramis's desk. 2. The "Caddyshack" director thought the premise formulaic at first, but a closer read convinced him he'd found a modern-day "It's a Wonderful Life." "Groundhog Day" became Rubin's first produced screenplay. 3. Believe it or not, Murray was not Ramis' first -- or even second -- choice to play Phil Connors. There had already been tension between the two during the making of 1989's "Ghostbusters II," their fifth film together. Ramis didn't think he wanted another 12 weeks of that, so he tried to cast the famously easygoing Tom Hanks instead. But Hanks turned him down and later told Ramis he'd made the right decision because he'd have ruined the film. "The audience already sees me as a nice guy," Ramis recalled Hanks telling him. "They would have been waiting for me to make that turn throughout the whole movie." Michael Keaton also said no before Ramis finally turned to Murray. 4. Andie MacDowell was known for more dramatic parts, like her "sex, lies, and videotape" role, but "Groundhog Day" made her a popular romantic-comedy lead for the next decade, a status she cemented a year later with "Four Weddings and a Funeral." 5. Chris Elliott had been a well-known TV comic, but his "Groundhog Day" character, exasperated cameraman Larry, marked his first major film role. He'd get to cut loose more on the big screen later in "There's Something About Mary" and the "Scary Movie" sequels. 6. Two decades before he was famous for playing "Man of Steel's" General Zod and other scary villains, Michael Shannon made his screen debut in "Groundhog Day. He played the very dim Fred, a nervous bridegroom. The 18-year-old was equally nervous in real life, others on the set recalled. One day, when he heard Murray blasting Talking Heads out of his boombox, Shannon told the star that the Heads were his favorite band and asked if Murray liked them, too. Of course, Murray snapped, because if he didn't like the band, he wouldn't be playing their music. Ramis had to reassure a shaken Shannon that he wasn't about to be fired. 7. Character actor Stephen Tobolowsky seems to have been in everything, but he's still best known for playing annoying insurance salesman Ned Ryerson in "Groundhog Day." His recurring character on "Glee" was named Sandy Ryerson in homage to his "Groundhog" role. 8. The town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania was played by Woodstock, Illinois. The shoot took place during the bitter cold winter of 1992. "it felt like we were in an Army experiment," Tobolowsky recalled, adding that the cold was especially irritating to Murray, who had to keep stepping into that slush-filled pothole. MacDowell said she and Brian Doyle-Murray used to spike their cocoa with peppermint schnapps just to keep warm. 9. Another irritant for Murray was the groundhog itself, which bit him on the hand during the chase scene, forcing the actor to get a rabies shot. "The groundhog hated my guts from Day One," he grumbled. Tobolowsky said that cast and crew debated whether the rodent should be put down or whether Murray had it coming. 10. Eventually, Murray became so hard to communicate with, both on and off the set, that someone suggested he get a personal assistant to field messages from Ramis and the crew. According to Ramis, Murray hired an assistant who was deaf and who spoke only in American Sign Language, which neither Murray nor anyone else in the production could speak. Murray pledged to learn how to sign, but gave up after a couple weeks. "That's anti-communication, you know?" Ramis said. "Let's not talk." 11. After "Groundhog Day" wrapped, Murray and Ramis never worked together again and hardly spoke to each other at all, until Ramis was on his deathbed in 2014. Ramis said in 2009 that he never knew why Murray had broken off ties with him. "Ask anyone in Hollywood. Everybody has a Bill Murray story," Ramis said. "He just punishes people, for reasons they can't figure out." For his part, Murray has never explained the riff to the press, either. 12. "Groundhog Day" cost a reported $15 million to make. It earned back $71 million in North American theaters. 13. How long was Phil Connors trapped in his perpetual Punxsutawney? Ramis initially estimated it at about 10 years worth of repeating days, but then said it was probably longer. Obsessed With Film writer Simon Gallagher crunched the numbers, including figuring out how long it would take Phil to learn to play the piano and ice-sculpt so well, and came up with 12,403 days -- or about 34 years. 14. "Groundhog Day" came to Broadway as a musical in 2016. Murray went to see it and was moved to tears. Aptly enough, he saw it again the next day.... read more

No one can believe 'Boss Baby' got an Oscar nomination 

Moviefone logo
Guys, we live in the timeline where "The Boss Baby" is a 2018 Oscar nominee. That happened, and we can't go back and change it now. The 90th Academy Awards nominations just came out on January 23, and there were a few snubs and surprises raising eyebrows on social media. Christopher Plummer, Greta Gerwig, Jordan Peele, and Mary J Blige are in. James Franco is out. But it was the animated feature category that earned more than a few spit-takes when it was revealed that "Boss Baby" made the cut, but "The LEGO Batman Movie" (among others) did not: Animated Feature "The Boss Baby" "The Breadwinner" "Coco" "Ferdinand" "Loving Vincent" What kind of sorcery is this? Fans were confused, especially since "Boss Baby" was hardly a critical or even audience favorite, despite strong box office numbers: The Boss Baby. Cancel the Oscars. - Robbie Collin (@robbiereviews) January 23, 2018 I mean yeah....... it TOTALLY makes sense why Boss Baby was nominated but @LEGOBatmanMovie wasn't. 🙄 - Steven Z Smith (@stevenzsmith88) January 23, 2018 Oh it hurts to hear "The Boss Baby" at #OscarNoms - Alicia Malone (@aliciamalone) January 23, 2018 BOSS BABY over THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE?
