A Star Comes Into Focus but the Movie Never Quite Does

24 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

If Grace Kelly had been raised by coyotes, she might have stalked the screen like Focus's Margot Robbie, a va-va-voom blonde with bite. Robbie is too beautiful to play normal, too sly to play nice. Miscast as a shy saint in Craig Zobel's upcoming Sundance hit Z for Zachariah, she had to disguise herself as a brunette. Robbie's more at ease when she can let 'er rip, as in her big debut as Leonardo DiCaprio's gold-digging wife in Wolf of Wall Street. Applaud DiCaprio's slithering stoned car scene to the rafters — I'll save my standing ovation for the deft way that Robbie, trying to impress her date at a posh restaurant, haughtily commands the waiter to bring her a s »

Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

In case you missed it, the Oscars were this past weekend and Birdman was the big winner. The Academy’s choice to award Alejandro González Iñárritu's fever dream was a genuine shock, with Boyhood the running favourite for many months. Nonetheless, some things never change, and in that vein it's certainly a non-surprise the Academy also hardly noticed the most ambitious blockbuster of 2014: the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar. Indeed, I use the phrase "non-surprise", because how could it be a winner when it was only nominated for the bare minimum of five Oscars in technical categories that are reserved as consolation prizes?

This is by all means par for the course with a film that has »

Anna Kendrick Wins Grace Kelly Award for Sexy Oscars Glamour (photos!)

23 February 2015 7:21 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Anna Kendrick captured the essence of Golden Era Hollywood glamour and Young Hollywood sensuality in a stunning coral gown by Thakoon. She appeared in the Oscar-nominated film “Into the Woods” and recalled a young Grace Kelly on the red carpet. There is no Grace Kelly award at the Oscars, of course, but if there were, she would have won it hands down. Since her Best Supporting Actress nomination for her breakout role in the 2009 film, “Up in the Air,” with George Clooney, she’s matured into an A-List actress. ...Read More »

22 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

News: Kate Middleton is the Latest Victim of a Photoshop Fail

The news source (which is the same publication responsible for this epic Kate Middleton Photoshop fail) claimed that His Royal Hotness, 30, enlisted the help of friends to help set him up with the 24-year-old actress after she split from her British rugby player boyfriend, Matthew Janney, this past year.

"World Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?!," Watson responded to the rumor on Sunday. "Also..... marrying a Prince not a prerequisite for being a Princess."

The actress attached a YouTube video to her tweet titled: "All Girls are Princesses."

22 February 2015 8:36 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca, Sneak Peek 'the good, the bad and the ugly' in director David Fincher's "Gone Girl", starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike:

Michael Stevens for 'The Good':

"I was intrigued by actress Rosamund Pike's Grace Kelly-like housewife, who visually warps into a devious personality. 

"Actor Tyler Perry is audience-friendly as smug, smiling attorney 'Tanner Bolt'.

"Actress Kim Dickens seems a natural as the reassuring and professional 'Detective Rhonda Boney' .

"Actress Emily Ratajkowski stole my heart as the luscious and needy mistress 'Andie Fitzgerald'. 

"I also enjoyed the music by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross showcased (and amplified) throughout the film.

Graf Orlok for 'The Bad': 

"Michael, I agree that actress Emily Ratajkowski  ("Blurred Lines") is a sweet surprise in this film.

"I also dug Rosamund Pike as 'Amy Elliott-Dunne' being loved-up by Affleck's repulsive character.

20 February 2015 3:32 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The Oscars are only days away, and host Neil Patrick Harris is warming up his pipes, dry-cleaning his tux, and getting ready.

Best Actress Felicity Jones, The Theory Of Everything

While there’s nothing showy about Felicity Jones’ turn as The Theory of Everything’s Jane Hawking, the film actually revolves around her struggle as the wife of a genius who needs constant support.

Oscars: Red Carpet Has its Own Share of Surprising Turns

17 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From navel-grazing necklines (Jennifer Aniston’s vintage John Galliano at the Screen Actors Guild Awards) to thigh-grazing hemlines (Madonna’s Givenchy bodysuit at the Grammys), the stars have been pulling out all the stops. If this year’s awards season offers any clues as to what we can expect on Oscar’s big night, it’s that we should expect the unexpected.

“Everyone is doing something different,” says Brit designer Emilia Wickstead, who created Diane Kruger’s stunning Golden Globes gown. “There are so many stories being told on the red carpet.”

Louis Jourdan, Star of ‘Octopussy,’ ‘Gigi,’ Dies at 93

15 February 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Louis Jourdan, who crafted a Hollywood acting career in the footsteps of fellow dapper Frenchmen Maurice Chevalier and Charles Boyer and is best remembered for the musical “Gigi” and as the villain in James Bond pic “Octopussy,” has died at 93. According to his friend and biographer Olivier Minne, he died Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills.

Jourdan offered a certain effortless charm that worked equally well in light heroic roles and more sinister ones.

“He was the last French figure of the Hollywood golden age. And he worked with so many of the greatest actors and directors,” said Minne, who is working on a documentary and a book about Jourdan.

In Vincente Minnelli’s 1958 musical confection “Gigi,” Jourdan starred with Leslie Caron and Chevalier in an effort from the “My Fair Lady” team of Lerner & Loewe, turning the Collette tale into a Frenchified version of “Pygmalion.” The New York Times said, »

Berlin Review: Why 'Queen of the Desert,' Starring Nicole Kidman, is Werner Herzog's Worst Movie in Years

6 February 2015 3:11 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Werner Herzog and Nicole Kidman get royally bunkered in "Queen of the Desert," a stunning misfire which counts as the first major disappointment of this year's Berlin International Film Festival. This independently-produced biopic of the revered British explorer-writer-archeologist Gertrude Bell, budgeted at a reported $36 million, will struggle to recoup that figure in North America – presuming it does obtain a proper theatrical release. Bell (1868-1926) lacks the name recognition of Grace Kelly in most territories, though it's a different story in the Middle East, the part of the world where she made her name – according to legend, she decided the boundaries of modern-day Iraq using a pencil and ruler – and where she remains much better known than her cinema-immortalized male "counterpart," T.E. Lawrence ("of Arabia"). Read More: The Best Things Werner Herzog, Nicole Kidman and James Franco Said About 'Queen of the Desert' But any comparisons with »

Get to Know: Tina Turnbow, Makeup Artist to the Stars

3 February 2015 5:04 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

One of the most talked about makeup looks of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards was Taylor Schilling's classic yet modern adaptation of Grace Kelly. The woman behind the look was none other than New York-based celebrity makeup artist and E! Style Collective member Tina Turnbow. As a long time makeup artist for Patricia Arquette, Marisa Tomei, Amanda Peet and Keri Russell, it's obvious that Tina is sought after for more than just her skills with a brush. The beauty guru is truly dedicated to her clients, makeup and finding inspiration, whether that is '70s punk and photography or New York City itself. She expresses herself through beauty but let's really see how she came and conquered the wonderful world of »

Harvey Weinstein discusses Grace of Monaco, Snowpiercer and more

28 January 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In his now yearly chat with the good folks over at Deadline, producer/mogul Harvey Weinstein sat down with the website to discuss his success with The Imitation Game, the problems with Grace of Monaco and his reputation of recutting some of his films, including Monaco and Snowpiercer.

On Grace of Monaco:

“…The script we signed on for was like ‘The King’s Speech,’ with the big moment where Princess Grace steps up. That is what attracted Nicole….I’d seen rushes that were great… The director is French, and he turned it more into a Hitchcock movie like a paean to ‘Vertigo,’ which ironically Grace wasn’t in. The writer, Arash Amel, called me and said, what happened to my script. It’s like welcome to Hollywood…”

“The director refused and criticized me profusely,” he continued. “That moniker of Harvey Scissorhands has always followed me and simply put, »

Harvey Weinstein on Best Pictures, 'Snowpiercer' and Theatrical vs. VOD and His "Harvey Scissorhands" Nickname

26 January 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Harvey Weinstein is one of the most powerful, outspoken, and controversial men in Hollywood. The studio executive who launched Miramax and The Weinstein Company is a passionate film lover, a master promoter, a ruthless Oscar campaigner, and just about everything else you need to be in order to make it to the top in the business. Even if you find what he does unscrupulous or the content he produces not very good, it is hard not to admire the man for how successful he has made himself, no matter how frustrating it might be. Weinstein recently had a chat with Deadline, covering a wide variety of topics from the Netflix series "Marco Polo" to the troubles with the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Finding Neverland to Oscar campaigning to his reputation of recutting films, giving him the nickname "Harvey Scissorhands." I had no idea the Weinsteins were behind "Marco Polo »

Harvey Weinstein Explains What Happened With 'Grace Of Monaco,' Says He Was Right About 'Snowpiercer'

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the most buzzed about and then quickly forgotten movies of 2014 was "Grace Of Monaco." On paper, it had all the trappings of a potentially strong film, with Nicole Kidman taking the lead role in a drama about Grace Kelly, with "La Vie En Rose" director Olivier Dahan at the helm. But things started to go sour as the film was hitting the finish line. In the fall of 2013, Dahan spoke openly to the French press about his battles with producer Harvey Weinstein who he claimed wanted a more "sanitized" and "Hollywood" friendly film. The Weinstein Company considered not even releasing the movie at all, but relented, and "Grace Of Monaco" headed to Cannes, where it opened the festival, only to be absolutely savaged by critics. So what happened? Will we see it? Well, Weinstein has some answers.  "...you’ll probably see it, either in a small theatrical release or on TV afterwards, »

Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window Screens This Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

25 January 2015 7:31 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“A murderer would never parade his crime in front of an open window”.

Rear Window Screens at The Hi-Pointe Theater in St. Louis Saturday morning January 31st at 10:30am

As with so many of Alfred’s Hitchcock’s films, Rear Window (1954) is a wonderful example of how to take an almost absurdly simple idea and spin out the maximum tension, character, humor and drama from it. It should be boring (a movie set in one room with a guy who can’t move) and ludicrous (a killer who murders his wife and chops her up in front of his neighbors) but it’s quite the opposite – riveting and eerily plausible. If ever there was a film about voyeurism and its relationship to cinema, this is it; Hitchcock tells engrossing little silent movies of the tenants (the newlyweds, the sculptress, Miss Torso, the dog-owners, the killer, the songwriter, Miss Lonelyhearts »

9 Sundance 2015 Films We Are Dying to See

22 January 2015 9:12 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The 2015 Sundance Film Festival kicks off Thursday and with it come some of the most groundbreaking, experimental, and challenging independent films from Hollywood and around the world.

From films about infamous psychological experiments to degenerate gamblers, and the post-apocalyptic worlds to ill-fated emotional journeys, these are the nine films from this year's Sundance Film Fest that we can't wait to watch.

1. The Stanford Prison Experiment

Sundance Film Festival

Starring: Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Kyle Patrick, Tye Sheridan. (Dir. Kyle Patrick Alvarez)

What It's About: The Stanford Prison Experiment tells the real life story of an infamous psychological study examining the effects of imprisonment. Two dozen student volunteers are randomly assigned to be guards or prisoners in this mock jail and, as the experiment unfolds, the students begin to disturbingly fall into their roles.

Why We Want To See It: The real experiment was a frightening yet fascinating examination of psychological conditioning and the man who ran the »

10 Hottest Sundance Sales Titles: J. Lo, Robert Redford, Keanu Reeves, David Foster Wallace

20 January 2015 2:54 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CAA is “Sleeping With Other People,” UTA is taking “The D Train,” Alicia Van Couvering is “Digging for Fire” and WME will award “The Bronze”...

Buyers will be out in full force this week in Park City but with so many options to choose from, it helps to have a cheat sheet to prioritize the must-see acquisition titles at Sundance. After talking to buyers and sellers alike, here are the 10 most promising titles with the loudest buzz heading into this year’s festival.

The Bronze (WME)

What’s the Deal?: The highlight of Sundance’s opening night lineup is this raunchy comedy from director Bryan Buckley featuring co-writer Melissa Rauch in what could prove to be a star-making performance. The “Big Bang Theory” actress plays a washed-up Olympic gymnast whose local celebrity is threatened by the arrival of a promising young gymnast seeking a mentor. Sundance describes the foul-mouthed protagonist as “a lovably loathsome character who makes Tonya Harding look like Grace Kelly,” so perhaps this will be the next “Bad Words?”

First Screening: Thursday, Jan. 22, 9:30 p.m. – Eccles

Digging for Fire (Alicia Van Couvering)

What’s the Deal?: Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt play East L.A. parents on the verge of a nervous breakdown as they juggle marital and parenting duties. Things get weird when she enjoys a night on the town with her girls and he takes the opportunity to invite his buddies over for smoking, drinking and carousing. Joe Swanberg’s latest may be his most commercial film yet, and it certainly features his most high-profile cast. Between Anna Kendrick, Orlando Bloom, Brie Larson, Sam Rockwell, Chris Messina, Jenny Slate, Melanie Lynskey, Timothy Simons, Ron Livington, comedian Mike Birbiglia and veterans Sam Elliott and Judith Light, there’s someone for everyone.

First Screening: Monday, Jan. 26, 9:45 p.m. – Eccles »
