Time Machine: Veterans Wallach and Coppola - Godfather 3 in Common - Are Special Oscar Honorees

24 April 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

The Simpsons' top 30 movie references

23 April 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Simpsons has pastiched hundreds of movies in its time. From Hitchcock to Kubrick to Disney, we select our top 30 favourites...

The Simpsons has a long history of peppering its stories with pop culture references, and some of the show’s finest gags stem from the world of cinema. These have ranged from the briefest of quotes, to full on shot-for-shot parodies and extended episode-long homages.

Most striking in trying to put this list together was the sheer volume of movie references there are to choose from. In pretty much any given episode of The Simpsons, there are at least a couple, with nods to James Bond, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the work of Alfred Hitchcock proving three of the most regular candidates. The tributes to numerous great horror movies in the show’s Treehouse Of Horror episodes could have been used to fill this list all on their own. »

If this is a golden age of TV, why don’t we dress like it?

13 April 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mad Men’s wardrobe is stunning, but I don’t see Peggies and Joans walking down the street. And the Breaking Bad look is suitable only for Halloween

Now that TV is the new cinema, is Peggy from Mad Men having the same impact on wardrobes that, say, Grace Kelly once did?

Name withheld, email

Truly, we live in – what’s the cliche I’m reaching for? Oh yes – a golden age of TV. What blessed times! We were once humble neanderthals, warming our hairy paws over TV shows like (in Britain) Noel’s House Party, a show that made you feel like you were on really bad acid every week, or (in America) Small Wonder, a sitcom in which a child actor had to pretend to be a robot for four years. Now, look at the art at the tips of our perfectly manicured hands! Last week alone saw »

Alfred Hitchcock; The Man Who Knew Too Much reviews – how the master exploited our fears

13 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Two new analyses of the director’s macabre imagination offer equally compelling explanations for the big-screen nightmares he created

Hitchcock, described by a colleague as “a know-it-all Sob”, was the man who knew too much about us. His films exploited our abiding terrors – beaked raptors assaulting us from the skies, a loose stair opening an abyss beneath our feet, nourishment concealing death in a glass of bedtime milk – and added a new one when he made the shower a last redoubt of quaking vulnerability. Those who write about him have an anthropological conundrum to puzzle over: why are these irrational alarms so inescapable and why do we so enjoy being tormented when we watch The Birds, Shadow of a Doubt, Suspicion, Psycho and the rest?

The newest books on Hitchcock answer the questions in different ways. Peter Ackroyd sees him as a case for Freudian treatment, who assumed that his neuroses were universal. »

Recap: 'The Amazing Race' - 'Smells Like a Million Bucks'

10 April 2015 7:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I know that sometimes teams are going to get lost on "The Amazing Race" and that every once in a while, getting lost is going to get a team eliminated on "The Amazing Race." But if you're going to get lost on "The Amazing Race" and that's going to be your undoing... Try to make it dramatic. Ask 50 people for directions and get increasingly more flummoxed. Fight and throw your maps in the air in outrage. Bang your head against your car horn repeatedly. Go the wrong way and end up in an ocean or accidentally steer yourself into a foreign country, through a hostile border, forcing armed guards to shoot out your tires. Oh and don't get so horribly lost that you get eliminated from "The Amazing Race" when you're in one of the smallest countries in the world. Sigh. More on Friday's (April 10) "The Amazing Race" after the break. »

"Grace of Monaco" Goes Direct-To-Lifetime

8 April 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Nicole Kidman-led "Grace of Monaco," which was critically lambasted when it opened last year's Cannes Film Festival, is finally getting a U.S. release.

What's making big news though is that it's skipping theatrical and VOD, and going straight to the Lifetime network where it will premiere on May 25th.

The story focuses on a period in the early 1960s when Monaco was involved in a stand-off over taxes with France and Grace Kelly was contemplating a return to Hollywood.

After a poor performance in international release, North American distributor The Weinstein Company opted to sell the Olivier Dahan-directed film directly to Lifetime rather than book it into U.S. theaters.

Nicole Kidman's Grace of Monaco for Us premiere on TV, not cinemas

8 April 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nicole Kidman's biopic Grace of Monaco will have its Us premiere on Lifetime, rather than in cinemas.

The film's release has proved contentious, with Us distributor Harvey Weinstein and Grace of Monaco director Olivier Dahan publicly battling over edits.

A Us cinema released was previously scheduled for November 2013 and later March 2014, but was pulled from the schedule on both occasions.

Kidman even publicly admitted that she had no control over the content of the Grace Kelly biopic, which was panned by European critics.

Grace of Monaco has now been acquired by cable channel Lifetime for its Us premiere.

The film will be airing on Lifetime on May 25 at 8pm Et.

Grace of Monaco dramatises the Hollywood icon's romance with Prince Rainier III of Monaco during her later years away from the film industry.

The movie had its international premiere at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

Nicole Kidman’s Grace Kelly biopic goes from Cannes to Lifetime

8 April 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From the festival circuit to your couch on a lazy Thursday afternoon.

That is the course for Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco, which will sees it’s U.S. premiere on Lifetime after opening the Cannes Film Festival a year ago. Deadline reported the news on Tuesday.

While the film hit theaters (to tepid responses by critics) overseas, it had yet to open in American theaters. It was also in the midst of controversy after The Weinstein Company and director Olivier Dahan fought of cuts. Deadline mentions that it is unclear whether Lifetime will use the cut by Dahan or Weinstein’s. The director’s cut was used in the premiere at Cannes.

In an interview with Deadline at Sundance this year, Harvey Weinstein hinted at the possibility that the film could find life on TV rather than a theatrical run. “The script we signed on for was like The King’s Speech, »

Nicole Kidman's 'Grace of Monaco' Heads to Lifetime

8 April 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Nicole Kidman's "Grace of Monaco" will skip Us theaters and land directly at Lifetime.  The Grace Kelly biopic opened the Cannes Film Festival last spring to none-too-positive reviews. It will debut on the cable network one year after its splashy French premiere over the Memorial Day weekend on May 25.  Set in 1962, "Grace of Monaco" takes place six years after Kelly and Monaco's Prince Rainier III tied the knot in the "wedding of the century." The drama focuses on the actress's desire to return to work against the wishes of the royal family. Parker Posey and Paz Vega co-star.  Once considered an awards vehicle for Kidman, "Grace of Monaco" will now join Lifetime's roster of movies about female performers like Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, and Brittany Murphy whose careers were cut too short.

Shocker: Weinstein's Cannes Opener 'Grace of Monaco' Goes to Lifetime

8 April 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Harvey Weinstein, who had closed a $5 million deal for U.S. rights to the $35 million "Grace of Monaco" starring Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman (TWC's "The Hours") in her seventh movie with him, as 60s era Grace Kelly, originally slated the film for November 2013 for an Oscar season run, promoting it at Cannes 2013, but then postponed it to spring 2014. Weinstein was furious when French filmmaker Olivier Dahan--who was looking to follow on the success of "La Vie En Rose," which had won an Oscar for Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf--booked it as the opening night movie at Cannes 2014 just ahead of its global release.  Watch: Nicole Kidman Talks 'Strangerland' and 'Grace of Monaco' (Video Interview) It was the wrong way to introduce a middlebrow melodrama that should never have had awards in its sights. In “Grace of Monaco,” Nicole Kidman is strong as poised Oscar-winning movie star Grace Kelly, who in 1962 faced the reality. »

'Grace of Monaco': Former Oscar Hopeful Will Now Premiere on Lifetime

8 April 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This is certainly not the royal treatment. The Nicole Kidman movie "Grace of Monaco" opened last year's Cannes Film Festival, but it's now headed to Lifetime. Yep, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it will premiere as a Lifetime movie on Memorial Day, May 25.

"Grace of Monaco" stars Oscar-winner Kidman as Grace Kelly, with Tim Roth as Prince Rainier III, and Frank Langella and Parker Posey in supporting roles. The film was originally scheduled for late 2013 release and - considering the star and subject - was viewed early on as a potential Oscar contender. Then it was panned by critics, the release date was shifted to early 2014, that didn't work out, and The Weinstein Company didn't include "Grace of Monaco" on its 2015 release schedule. Instead of releasing it in U.S. theaters, a source confirmed to THR that The Weinstein Company decided to sell "Grace" directly to Lifetime.

Nicole Kidman is Coming To Lifetime? Huh?

7 April 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Nicole Kidman…in a Lifetime movie? As hard as that is to believe, it's kinda true! After years of delays and being taken off the release schedule indefinitely, the Kidman-starring Grace of Monaco is skipping the theaters entirely and airing on Lifetime on May 25, according to the network. The film, which was directed by Olivier Dahan, was originally supposed to be released in theaters in November 2013 before it was delayed indefinitely in January 2014. It then premiered at Sundance in May to some not-so-favorable reviews, and currently sits at 9% on Rotten Tomatoes. (Yikes!) Grace of Monaco takes place in 1962, six years after former Hollywood actress Grace Kelly (Kidman) married »

Oof! From Cannes to Lifetime: The Fall of 'Grace of Monaco'

7 April 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I remember a time when Grace of Monaco was an Oscar hopeful in everyone's eyes. It opened the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, Nicole Kidman was playing a screen legend sure to garner some attention, Olivier Dahan was directing (whose La Vie En Rose garnered Marion Cotillard an Oscar), and The Weinstein Company was sure to position it like they did The Imitation Game. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. After receiving scathing reviews from just about everyone out of Cannes and no one wanting to touch it with a ten-foot pole, Variety reports the film will premiere on Lifetime on May 25. You read that right. Lifetime. A film that opened Cannes will now be playing on the same station that houses the Lindsay Lohan-starring Liz and Dick and the Grumpy Cat movie. I can hardly believe it myself. Lifetime may not have the same stigmatization to others than it does for myself, »
