Whitney Houston s rumored romance with Robyn Crawford , which Radar has reported on extensively, has been re-explored in a new documentary . The film, Whitney: Can I Be Me , which premiered Wednesday at the Tribeca Film Festival, explores the singer's mysterious relationship with longtime best friend and assistant, asserting that the pair was much more than friends by the end. I dont think she was gay, I think she was bisexual, Houston's pal and stylist Ellin Lavar said in the documentary, adding Robyn provided a safe place for her…in that Whitney found safety and solace. But Whitney's husband Bobby Brown soon became a wrench in the mix, the film claims. PHOTOS: The Sum of Whitney Houston's Life and Tragic Death Robyn and Whitney were like twins, said Kevin Ammons , who worked on Houston's security detail.

" "Alien: Covenant" the second of the prequel films, is set in 2104 on board a spaceship carrying 2,000 cryogenically frozen colonists to a distant planet when they chance upon an uncharted paradise. But their voyage soon turns into a gory nightmare that makes "Alien'"s original "chestbuster" scene seem tame in comparison. - 'Hideous beyond belief' - The "neomorph" aliens in the new film are based on the goblin shark "which has a jaw which hinges in two ways. It's scary, hideous beyond belief actually," Scott said. The 79-year-old British-born director -- who was also the brains behind "Blade Runner" -- said he never tired or scaring people out of their skins. "When I did the first 'Alien' I had to get a sense of responsibility because the reaction to the kitchen ("chestbuser") scene with John Hurt was beyond anything I expected -- and it was not good," he told AFP.

US actor Will Smith – one of the most bankable stars in the world – is to sit on the jury of the Cannes film festival next month, its organisers said Tuesday. The former hip-hop star, 48, who made his name in the teen television series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, has been nominated twice for an Oscar. He will decide the festival's top prize, the Palme d'Or, with a nine-member jury that also contains fellow Hollywood star Jessica Chastain and the Chinese X-Men actress Fan Bingbing. Having missed out twice on an Oscar despite being one of the favourites in 2001 for his portrayal of the boxer Muhammad Ali in Ali, the Cannes call is another remarkable twist in the story of a rapper who had become one of Hollywood's key players. Other big names on the jury include the Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, best known for La Grande Bellezza and his hit television series starring Jude Law, The Young Pope.

This is the first in a new monthly series of short films about London-based makers by filmmaker William Scothern —we're calling them Made in London . The first film is about Archie Proudfoot , an artist and sign painter whose work uses the techniques and the aesthetics of traditional signage to explore our relationship with language. Watch: Having graduated from studying a degree in English Literature during a recession, Archie went in search of work that would satisfy his yearning for an interesting job'. It was quite soon after the financial crash of 2008, and the employment sector was not great, he says. If you wanted an interesting job, you were going to have to put in quite a lot of time unpaid. And I thought, well I'll just invest that time in myself. He specializes in the reverse-glass gilding process, often choosing to isolate a single word or phrase in the grandeur of gold, examining our emotional response to it, as well as the geometry and physical interplay of the letterforms themselves.

There's rich material to be mined from the premise of The Circle , a new thriller set in the offices of a tech giant that's like Google, Facebook, and Apple all rolled into one. Unfortunately, the film has neither the patience nor the insight to dig very deeply at all. Instead, it blows the whole concept to rubble and pats itself on the back for having the insight to drop such truth bombs. SEE ALSO: Watch The Circle' cast awkwardly roast Twitter's CEO on his own site Directed by James Ponsoldt and based on a novel by Dave Eggers, The Circle stars Emma Watson as Mae Holland, a bright young woman who's hired to work at The Circle. The company has just come out with a revolutionary new technology: a camera called SeeChange that's so tiny, versatile, and cheap that it promises to bring about an era of (even more) constant surveillance.

The Tribeca Film Festival, which, since its creation in 2002 has become a fixture for the movie industry, is no stranger to immersive and interactive experiences. Already, in 2013, they introduced Storyscapes, a showcase of works blending storytelling and technology. Back then, only five projects were featured. Last year, the festival debuted the Virtual Arcade, to make more room for the growing number of virtual reality pieces being produced by household names and emerging voices alike. Eighteen were selected and offered on-site for visitors to try. This time around, the two sections have been merged. The 2017 edition of the festival boasts 30 such innovative experiences, two thirds of which are world premiere. They run the gamut of the current uses of the medium, from fiction to non-fiction, photorealism to animation, room-scale installations to interactive.

Peter Kosminsky : ‘Some years ago, I had the great honour and privilege to work with the scarily talented Thom Yorke and Radiohead, when they allowed me to use their music for a film I was making about bullying. I’ve admired from afar their support for the Tibetans and for Amnesty International, and their championing of human rights. So I’m puzzled and really saddened to hear that they plan to play in Israel later this year. I would urge them not to do so. With Trump in the White House, the situation for Palestinians has become tougher than ever. They’ve asked for a cultural boycott of Israel, just as campaigners for freedom asked artists not to perform in Sun City during the apartheid era. I think we should assume they know what’s in their best interests and respect their wish, irrespective of other considerations.’
