Director Jeff Nichols has never had an easier time titling a movie. The filmmaker’s latest project, Loving, follows the real-life couple (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga) whose union led the Supreme Court to strike down laws prohibiting interracial marriage. The couple’s last name — which all you law students already know — was, amazingly, Loving.

Many of this year's Oscar nominees have spent the last six or months or so talking endlessly about their films at one press junket or awards event after the other. So on the red carpet at the 2018 Academy Awards, we asked a handful of nominees for their favorite moments from other movies.
The film 'Black Panther' carries themes that closely mirror today's real-world political climate, from Black Lives Matter to Trumpian immigration policies.

The eight-time Oscar nominee (and one-time winner) sat down with Yahoo Movies to share stories from the sets of seven of his classics, including where exactly his Scent of a Woman lieutenant colonel’s penchant for yelling “Hoo-wah!” came from.
It’s hard to believe there has not yet been a definitive documentary about the Grateful Dead, the seminal, cultishly followed jam-band. You can get your first look at Long Strange Trip in the exclusive trailer above. Directed by Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story, My Kid Could Paint That) and produced by Martin Scorsese (you already know), Long Strange Trip culls new interviews, never-seen-before footage, concert performances, acid flashbacks, and more to tell the untold story of the Grateful Dead, from their conception in Palo Alto, California, to the 1995 death of de facto leader Jerry Garcia and beyond.
There’s a lot of chemistry, and no “spaghetti arms,” in this rare footage of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s Dirty Dancing screen test. This Yahoo Movies exclusive clip, taken from a new featurette on the 30th anniversary Dirty Dancing Blu-ray, shows the two stars getting to know each other as they work through some dance steps. Swayze, an experienced ballet dancer by the time he made the film, instructs Grey to lift her chest so he doesn’t hurt her ribs. “It hurts my ribs,” she replies, giggling, as Swayze gently puts her down.
The new romantic drama Loving, based on the real-life couple whose 1967 Supreme Court trial Loving v. Virginia legalized interracial marriage, is a quintessential tale of American social justice. “I kept thinking he cast me ’cause he’s just lazy,” the Australian-born Edgerton joked to Yahoo Movies (watch above) about director and Arkansas native Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter), whom the actor had just worked with on the spring release Midnight Special. Edgerton (Warrior, Black Mass) plays Richard Loving, a soft-spoken carpenter who wants nothing more than to live The Simple Life with his sweet-natured bride, Mildred Jeter (Negga).

Rogue One is still 80 days away, but by the end of the week you’ll be able to play way through the newest Star Wars adventure — this Friday is when licensees can officially start selling their latest merchandise, including loads of new toys. To hype their wares, toy makers teamed with Lucasfilm and a group of superfans to create Go Rogue, a series of stop-motion YouTube videos loosely retelling the Rogue One plot (spoiler-free!) with the latest action figures, vehicles, and playsets.
Fraternal filmmaking duo Joe and Anthony Russo had lofty ambitions when setting out to stage the crucial airport sequence pitting Team Cap against Team Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War. “When Joe and Anthony came to us and pitched it, they said, ‘We want this fight to be remembered in history,’” fight choreographer James Young told Yahoo Movies in the lead-up to the film’s upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release. “I think it might be one of the biggest sequences ever put on film,” Joe Russo told the Toronto Sun at one point during shooting.

Upon hearing the premise of this week’s comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising — in which a young married couple (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) are terrorized for a second time by a houseful of loud college party animals wearing Greek letters — we’d bet one of your first reactions was, C’mon, really, wouldn’t they have just moved away from that campus after the first nightmare? In fact, very early in the movie, they sell their house to a lovely couple played by Sam Richardson and Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson.
These days Kate Beckinsale is probably better known for werewolf-whooping in the Underworld series than tea-sipping in costume dramas. But her roots are firmly planted in the latter. The 42-year-old London native made her movie debut in the 1993 Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing while on summer break from Oxford before headlining fanciful fare like Cold Comfort Farm (1995) and Emma (1996).
The testosterone-fueled 2014 comedy Neighbors featured all the excess and belligerence you’d expect from an R-rated comedy about a wild fraternity making life hell for the couple next door: hazing, mushroom trips, erection party tricks, a homemade dildo racket, etc.

In retrospect, assuming the iconic role of Obi-Wan Kenobi was nothing compared to Ewan McGregor’s latest undertaking. Written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Nine Lives, Albert Nobbs) and shot by Emmanuel Lubezki (who has won the last three consecutive Academy Awards for Best Cinematography), the film imagines a 40-day trek made by Christ as he fasts, prays, soul searches, and resists the temptations of the Devil (also played by McGregor).
