Here Are 15 Movie Musical Adaptations That Don’t Suck

22 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Film and television adaptations of popular musicals haven’t been doing so hot lately. After enduring the disastrous live-action Peter Pan that aired on NBC earlier this month – not to mention last year’s The Sound of Music featuring Carrie Underwood “acting” – plus less-than-stellar translations of Nine (2009) and Rock of Ages (2012), is it possible Broadway and the screen just don’t mix?

With Into the Woods skipping into theaters Dec. 25, we’ll get a little bit closer to finding out. We’re optimists and think there certainly is a place for musicals at the movies and on television. Heck, there’s a laundry list of successful adaptations to prove it. The song-and-dance mojo wasn’t present for some efforts – let’s just forget about Pierce Brosnan’s singing in Mama Mia (2008) – but others were right on point. And even won Oscars. 

West Side Story (1961)

Rotten Tomatoes score: 94 percent

Catwoman 1989 - Ruiz Burgos’ Saturday Evening Post Series

2 December 2014 10:33 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We’ve seen quite a bit of geek art inspired by Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening post covers. But a couple of months ago, Ruiz Burgos released one of the biggest and best collections of Rockwell-inspired art for a series he seems keen on continuing. His latest piece stays within the DC universe and features Catwoman being busted in the middle of a jewelry heist. I’m about 90% sure that Burgos modeled Selina Kyle on Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And I’m 100% sure he modeled the Police Officer on Stafford Repp, who played Chief O'Hara on the ‘60s Batman series. The extra assuredness comes from the fact that you can see the name O’Hara underneath his badge.

I hope Burgos takes on some Marvel characters in the future. He's done a fantastic job with all of the DC heroes and villains so far.

18 November 2014 6:42 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Several Oscar contenders are heading to New York and the Broadway stage as the Oscar season progresses in Hollywood. With projects on both coasts, these contenders could score both Tony and Oscar nominations during the upcoming awards season.

Director Bob Fosse won two Tony Awards and an Oscar in 1973. The two Tonys were for direction and choreography for Pippin and the Oscar was for directing Cabaret. Director Stephen Daldry won an Oscar for The Reader and a Tony for Billy Elliot the Musical in 2009.

Five actresses have won both awards in the same year: Shirley Booth won a Tony for The Time of the Cuckoo and an Oscar for Come Back, Little Sheba in 1953; Audrey Hepburn won a Tony for Ondine and an Oscar for Roman Holiday in 1954; Ellen Burstyn won a Tony for Same Time, Next Year and an Oscar for Alice Doesn’t »

18 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In 1954, Audrey Hepburn charmed moviegoers as a chauffeur's daughter in Billy Wilder's "Sabrina," an early example of the iconic screen star's bewitching blend of wit, style and charisma. The latest podcast in film critic Karina Longworth's You Must Remember This series, which regularly explores forgotten Hollywood backstories and mythology, examines Hepburn's emerging star persona during the days of "Sabrina"— along with some spicy behind-the-scenes goings-on involving costars William Holden and Humphrey Bogart. Below, listen to Longworth's 35-minute podcast, which is distributed by Infinite Guest from American Public Media. Follow the podcast on Twitter via @RememberThisPod. Past highlights include Longworth's takes on iconic screen pairings, from Bogie and Bacall to Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. Her well-articulated and unusual insights into movie history make for a great long-form listen. »

Gwyneth Paltrow Attempts to Channel Marilyn Monroe

12 November 2014 11:20 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Does Gwyneth Paltrow have what it takes to embody the legendary Marilyn Monroe?

In this new Max Factor video, Gwyneth transforms into the sexy icon in order to represent the "Femme Fatale 40's," right down to the tousled short blonde hair and the retro peddle-pushers and cropped cardigan combo.

"It's fun to dress up for work," she says about her eyebrow-raising transformation. "You know, it's always nice to be in New York, in a little convertible Mercedes, and it's good."

Photos: See Gwyneth Paltrow Channel Fashion Icons Madonna, Audrey, Brigitte and Farrah

Gwyneth also rocks dramatic lashes and a bright statement lip a la Marilyn.

"I think I like the lipstick the best," she says. "I think it's my favorite of the look."

But Marilyn is not the only beauty icon Gwyneth has transformed into as the face of Max Factor. In July, she recreated the famous looks of Madonna (representing the 80s), Audrey Hepburn (the 50s), Brigitte Bardot »

Photos show Paltrow with tousled platinum waves, a sultry red lip and eye-widening mascara. She sports a peach cardigan and skin-tight, polka »
