And he had kept the two from meeting during the early days of production, even putting them up at separate hotels. What if they came together, and it didn’t work? More coverage ‘Gravity’ kept Bullock grounded “I deliberately kept them apart until they met in the story, which is when the Somalis storm the bridge,” says Greengrass, on the phone from a shutdown Washington, D.C., Thursday. “I think at first the young Somali actors were disappointed, because they wanted to meet the great Tom Hanks. But I wanted them to meet literally at the point of a gun. “So, we rehearsed them separately for that scene, in separate parts of the ship, and then we shot it, and that is what you see. And I remember thinking, Well, this is the moment of truth . . . . And I just remember them coming through that door, barreling through it with absolute ferocity, and then Barkhad comes in and he says, ‘Look at me! I’m the captain now!’ which wasn’t actually scripted.

(Photo: TCM) SHARE 29 CONNECT 12 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE If I watch a classic film on Turner Classic Movies, I make sure to catch Robert Osborne’s insightful introductions and postscripts. More often than not, he tells me something I didn’t know, and that even goes for movies I’ve seen dozens of times (like, say, The Graduate). This month, TCM is holding a contest that will let one lucky fan co-host a movie with Osborne. Over at the site for its ” Ultimate Fan Contest ,” you can submit a 90-second video of yourself introducing a classic film. Along with being featured on the air, the grand-prize winner will win a trip to the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood, where he/she also will introduce a film. The contest just kicked off, so few submissions have been posted on the site. However, this clever sample sets the standard for what they’re looking for. TCM is accepting entries through Oct. 31.

On Movies: Hanks and his co-star: an encounter at sea

Tom Hanks stars as Richard Phillips in "Captain Phillips," based on the story of a cargo ship taken by pirates.

Libraries have always been a source of audiovisual entertainment. A 2012 Pew Research Center survey found that among patrons 16 years old and older, 40 percent visited libraries to borrow movies. Another 16 percent borrowed music. In the Seattle area, DVDs and CDs of popular titles can have queues of hundreds of people waiting to check them out. E-books have been offered for years now. “Public libraries do not have the budgets to compete with Amazon, Comcast, and Netflix and will not be able to pay a premium for online content,” Blankenship said, adding that DVDs will continue to be the best way to offer popular movies. Updating and maintaining that physical collection takes time and money. It also means libraries have to pay for the media upfront, while Hoopla allows them to pay per time a title is borrowed. Those costs depend on the type of media and its release date, and range from 99 cents to $2.99. Seattle libraries have allocated $10,000 a month limit so far for Hoopla items and patrons are limited to 20 checkouts a month, Blankenship said. That limit may change, depending on demand and how usage grows.
