Kerry Washington Honored by GLAAD

8 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

GLAAD has chosen Kerry Washington as the recipient of its Vanguard Award for her work in promoting equality.

The honor will be presented at the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton on March 21.

Previous Vanguard Award honorees include Jennifer Lopez, Kristin Chenoweth, Charlize Theron, Elizabeth Taylor, Antonio Banderas, Drew Barrymore, Janet Jackson, and Sharon Stone.

The organization noted that Washington became the first African American woman to a headline a network TV drama since 1974 when she took on the role of Olivia Pope on the Lgbt-inclusive show “Scandal.” It noted that she has “tirelessly” spoken out in support of full equality for Lgbt people and participated in GLAAD’s annual anti-bullying campaign, Spirit Day.

“Throughout her illustrious career, Kerry Washington has consistently brought life to characters that encourage acceptance of Lgbt people,” said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “Her outspoken support for equality, both here at home and abroad, »

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass horror movie arrives comatose (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') (See previous post: "'Focus': Will Smith Has One of Worst Opening Weekends of His Career.") Despite recent news that human head transplants are a mere two years away, the Mark Duplass-Olivia Wilde horror movie The Lazarus Effect – about bringing the dead back to life (as if world overpopulation weren't already a problem) – grossed $10.6 million from 2,666 U.S. and Canada venues on opening weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The Relativity Studios-distributed low-budget horror flick had earned an estimated $3.8 million on opening-day Friday, including $350,000 from Thursday night screenings. Last week, box-office prognosticators had been expecting an opening between $12-$14 million. That was adjusted downward to $10 million or whereabouts after the film's disappointing Friday debut.

Dakota Johnson might be all about Christian Grey while in character in the Red Room, but on the Oscars red carpet it was all about mom. Johnson, 25, brought her famous mother, Melanie Griffith, as her date to the awards show Sunday night. "I am a very proud mom," Griffith told ABC's On the Red Carpet as her daughter rubbed her back. When the reporter pressed for more - calling Griffith "a very quiet mom" - she replied, "It's my time to be quiet."

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Dakota Johnson

18 February 2015 1:27 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Image Entertainment

Dakota Johnson comes from a rich background of actors and actresses and is now starting to truly flourish as one herself. Born on October 4th 1989, the 25-year-old star of Fifty Shades of Grey is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, while her stepfather’s from her mother’s later relationships include Steven Bauer and Antonio Banderas.

Having started her acting career in 1999’s Crazy In Alabama, Johnson has gone on to appear in a number of big movies, such as The Social Network, 21 Jump Street and Need For Speed, but had gone largely under the radar prior to her (somewhat surprising) casting as Anastasia Steele in this year’s adaptation of E. L. James’ incredibly popular erotic novel.

Her profile and career are set to explode following the huge box office success of Fifty Shades of Grey (in spite of its somewhat mixed critical reception), so »

It's all eyes on Dakota Johnson with Fifty Shades of Grey dominating the box office – but long before she was Anastasia Steele, Dakota was Melanie Griffith's adorable 10-year-old daughter stealing the limelight at the 2000 Academy Awards.

Et first met Dakota on the carpet before the awards, with mom and Melanie's then-husband Antonio Banderas in tow.

Dancing in Jaffa review – documentary waltzes and tangoes for peace

12 February 2015 1:45 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hilla Medalia captures ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine as he uses fancy footwork to bring together Palestinian and Jewish children

Hilla Medalia’s modest, watchable documentary is about Pierre Dulaine, a ballroom dancer and teacher whose work with underprivileged New York schoolchildren was the inspiration for a fiction feature, Take the Lead (2006) starring Antonio Banderas as Pierre. This film is about Dulaine’s return to Jaffa, the city of his birth, and his attempt to set up a new school dance programme to get Jewish and Palestinian children to come together for the first time in their lives, and partner up for waltzes, tangoes and rumbas – a kind of Strictly Come Dancing-style kids’ version of Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. It’s a nice idea, and there is something touching and important in showing how the boys and girls are – of course – so shy and giggly with each other at first. »

The SpongeBob Movie Is Absurd, Delightful Business as Usual

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

Animated adventure-comedy The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water's dedication to surreal, anti-formulaic humor makes the film a supremely confident extension of the title character's TV series. Sponge Out of Water playfully reinforces sitcom-style roles and conflicts through a delightfully absurd scenario that builds in its weirdness until climaxing with a talking space-dolphin/singing seagulls rap battle. So while TV SpongeBob's typical adventures don't involve photo-booth time-machines and Antonio Banderas in a pirate outfit, Sponge Out of Water is still business as usual for the irrepressibly cheerful, pineapple-dwelling sea-creature.

Banderas's Burger Beard, a swashbuckler cum amateur fast-food vendor, disrupts life as SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) and his fri »

'The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water' (2015) Movie Review

9 February 2015 12:58 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There is a strong chance many of you out there will feel a bit old with what I am about to say. Back in 1999, I was six years old. The reason I bring this up is because the television program "SpongeBob SquarePants" started airing that year. As a kid who watched a ton of cartoons, "SpongeBob" was one of my favorites, and to this day, I can still go back and watch those first three or four seasons not only with nostalgia but legitimate enjoyment. The writing, animation, and vocal performances on that show are unique, vibrant, and, most importantly, really funny. The jokes drift from the silliest of silly to the driest of wit. Not a week goes by without me quoting it at least half a dozen times. Despite my love for those early years, the recent seasons, which I check up on now and again, have not been the greatest. »

Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups"- New Footage

9 February 2015 5:25 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek footage from writer/director Terrence Malick's new romantic fantasy drama "Knight of Cups" starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley and Imogen Poots:

"...a screenwriter living in Los Angeles tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him..."

The title of the film refers to the 'tarot' card of the same name, where 'Knight' is the face card, similar to a 'Jack', 'Queen', or 'King' and 'Cups' is the suit, roughly equating with the traditional suit, 'Hearts.

Malick’s ‘Knight Of Cups’ Gets A Poster

8 February 2015 9:40 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Terence Malick is possibly the only living director that I think has had a perfect career so far. Many directors have at least one stumbling block, and for many years I believed Malick’s brilliance was only because he rarely made a film. I still remember what a big deal The Thin Red Line was when it first came out. Nowadays though, the man is a lot more prolific, with Knight Of Cups being his third film in four years.

Being a man who once gave himself a 20 year hiatus, you can always count on Malick’s films to be considered almost necessary. His latest sees Christian Bale star as a screenwriter trying to make sense of the world around him with the title derived from a tarot card:

Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. »
