Daily | John Badham @ 75

25 August 2014 5:55 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

A happy 75th to John Badham, who broke through in 1977 with Saturday Night Fever and made a star out of John Travolta. Since his 1976 debut, The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings, featuring Billy Dee Williams, James Earl Jones and Richard Pryor, Badham's had his hits and misses. Today, we're remembering some of his best films, including WarGames (1983) with two young actors unknown at the time, Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy. Plus clips, interviews and more. » - David Hudson »

Justin Bieber finally shaves his 'stache in Instagram video

21 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the pantheon of celebrity mustaches, Justin Bieber’s recent attempt ranks somewhere between a Matthew Broderick and an Ashton Kutcher. Unlike the greats—say, Hulk Hogan’s or Salvador Dali’s—a mustache like this mostly incites a desire to shave it off.

Thankfully, Bieber has taken the hint. In an Instagram video posted yesterday, he grabs a razor and an encouraging friend to help him say goodbye to wispy lip fuzz and hello to hairlessness. Bieber turns shaving in his cavernous bathroom into a full-on production, with sultry whispering, smoldering gazes, and awkward close-ups of his chin. »

“It’s Only a Play” Stars Talk Rupert Grint’s Broadway Debut!

20 August 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Rupert-Grint.us/ | See recent Rupert Grint - Ice Cream Man news »

August 20th, 2014, 5:43pm– Yet another article has surfaced from yesterday’s eventful press conference for It’s Only a Play and this time we get to learn what Rupert Grint‘s co-stars think about our favourite redhead and his upcoming Broadway debut. He told us in June that he was feeling terrified about being on stage in New York and this is apparently also the impression he gave his co-stars when first meeting them. i.1.rupert-grint-party-report Megan Mullally talks about that here: “But he’s adorable and lovely, and he was an absolute basket case for the first week or so. The first night when I met him, there was a little dinner, and he was standing outside, smoking a cigarette, and I was, like, ‘Are you Rupert?’ And he said he was, and he just instantly announced that he was terrified. I said, ‘Oh, you’re going to be great. »

Looking lovely ladies!

Looks like Lc and Sjp were both on wedding duty this weekend!

Lauren Conrad, 28, was bridesmaid to her Paper Crown clothing brand partner Maura McManusin in Ojai, California on Saturday, looking classy as ever in a floor-length, sleeveless cream gown.

Lc accessorized the simple but pretty style with a belt, emphasizing her tiny waist, but most importantly, the ethereal creation didn't stop her from enjoying the wedding festivities -- McManusin's wedding also doubled as a Laguna Beach reunion, with Lo Bosworth, Dieter Schmitz and Stephen Colletti all in attendance!

Sex and the City star Parker also rocked a sleeveless, floor-length gown on Saturday in Greenwich, Connecticut, where she celebrated the wedding of the vice president of her Pretty Matches production company -- and an associate producer on both of the Sex and the City films -- Melinda Relyea.

Sarah Jessica Parker, 49, Rocks a One-Piece Swimsuit After Serving as Her Friend's Bridesmaid

18 August 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Have you ever seen Sarah Jessica Parker so happy? The 49-year-old actress was photographed rocking a one-piece swimsuit in East Hampton, New York, Sunday. It appears she wore the same swimsuit from her summer 2013 vacation in the Greek islands. On Sunday, Parker and her husband, 52-year-old actor Matthew Broderick, were seen frolicking in the Atlantic Ocean. The spouses of 17 years also built sandcastles with their 5-year-old daughter, Marion. Parker looked phenomenal, but she's no gym rat. In fact, just two months ago, the Escape from Planet Earth voiceover actress said she can only "bear" to exercise "a sum total of 22 minutes" before quitting. The day before she hit the »

Sarah Jessica Parker Hasn't Changed One Bit Since Sex and the City

18 August 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Seriously, does Sarah Jessica Parker ever age? The 49-year-old actress put her impressive beach body on display on Sunday when she hit the sand with husband Matthew Broderick.

Find Out When 'Godzilla 2' Will Stomp Its Way Into Theaters

14 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

One of the definite highlights of this year's summer movie season was Gareth Edwards' big screen reboot of the "Godzilla" franchise. The movie brought genuine awe and wonder back to the film series that had largely been defined by goofy rubber monsters and, later, Matthew Broderick. It had already been announced that the film, which grossed nearly $500 million at the worldwide box office, would be getting a sequel -- with original director Edwards returning and a whole host of classic monsters for the King of the Monsters to brawl with (Rodan, Ghidorah, and Mothra). But when, exactly, Godzilla would be stomping back into theaters has been a mystery... Until now.

Variety reports that Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros will be releasing the next installment in the new franchise on June 8th, 2018. It's unclear if any of the original cast members will be back for the sequel. But we're pretty sure Godzilla will return. »

Sony making changes to The Interview, may avert war

13 August 2014 10:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

North Korea may yet call off war threats, as Sony makes lots of small amends to the upcoming comedy, The Interview...

The story so far. For their follow up to This Is The End, co-writers and directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been putting together The Interview. This is a comedy starring Rogen and James Franco, recently pushed back to December, that follows a fictional assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's life.

The North Korean authorities did not take this news very well, declaring it an "act of war". A complaint to the United Nations was lodged.

As it turns out, Sony is now making alterations to the movie, presumably in an attempt to avoid World War III breaking out. It also saves putting out a call to Matthew Broderick and his games of tic-tac-toe.

The Hollywood Reporter is saying that thousands of military buttons that »

French secret service agent Jean Reno gives him some clues, but the military and his girlfriend's TV crew don't really help matters. »

World Star Hip Hop To Become A Movie

5 August 2014 9:51 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You can make almost anything into a movie today. LEGOs? Okay. Peeps? Sure, why not? Highly popular websites of indeterminate content? Well, uh, it's an idea, right? When it comes down to studios making movies, if they don't have to spend a lot of money, they won't, and a low budget World Star Hip Hop movie has now found a home at Paramount Insurge. Deadline reports that the studio has purchased a pitch from Ian Edelman to turn World Star Hip Hop into a movie. Edelman's idea is being kept "under wraps" (usually that means it doesn't really exist!) but its said to be based on Ferris Bueller's Day Off. This is a hilarious proposition considering Edelman's most popular credit, HBO's ethnic, low-budget Entourage analogue How To Make It In America. It's also kind of hilarious comparing Matthew Broderick's Sunday afternoon classic with World Star Hip Hop itself. The »

Gareth Edwards Confirms Godzilla 2 Return, Reveals Sequel’s Monsters

26 July 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the biggest Comic-Con event of the day so far has unquestionably been Zack Snyder’s unveiling of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Legendary’s news today about Godzilla personally excites me much more. At Comic-Con, the studio has revealed that Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards (who’ll next helm a Star Wars spinoff) will be back on board for Godzilla 2, and that the sequel is going to boast a lot more of the big green lizard monster himself.

As you can see from the tweets below, Legendary has big plans for the Godzilla franchise – and after Edwards’ film did gangbusters at the box office, why shouldn’t it? The box office returns for Godzilla indicated that there’s still a big appetite for this series:

Comic-Con: Sneak Peek at the Teen-Angst Time-Travel Movie Project Almanac

26 July 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At Comic-Con late Thursday night, Paramount held a surprise sneak peek of its upcoming found-footage time-travel film Project Almanac, from first-time feature director Dean Israelite and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes. Originally scheduled for release back in February, it was postponed until January of 2015 to give Paramount and MTV Films time work out a marketing strategy. Some of that strategy will no doubt be based on the response of the select Comic-Con audience at this screening, which was generally positive despite the late hour (it started just after 11:00 pm).  Hit the jump for my Project Almanac preview. No doubt this film will be watched closely by fans of the 1983 Matthew Broderick thriller War Games, since Israelite has just signed on to direct the remake. It’s not hard to see the similarities. Both films center on an awkward but brilliant teenager whose talents get him in over his head »

Movie Hacks

23 July 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

No, not your favourite internet journalist hacks! The other ones that you hate!  Norton have just released the Hitchhikers Guide To Hacking, featuring an epic infographic about the world of hacking and of course Hollywood’s long time obsession with the culture. From Wargames back in 1983 starring Matthew Broderick. The film featured a young hacker who almost inadvertently causes World War III when he taps into a military supercomputer. So the film required a stretch of the imagination, but it was a critical and commercial success, brought attention to the hacking phenomenon and even coined the phrase ‘firewall’. Even Keanu Reeves got into it in 1999 with The Matrix as the world was hyperventilating with excitement over the turn of the century, whilst the threat of the Y2K problem loomed. Hacking was cooler and sexier than ever. With names like Neo and Trinity, the characters wore black trench coats and »
