Apparently, that giant photo of Sarah Jessica Parker almost didn't end up on the side of that New York City bus. Sarah Jessica Parker almost didn't star in Sex and the City...by choice, according to Seth Rudetsky. In his weekly column posted on Playbill this week, the Sirius Xm radio host and Broadway performer, who recently performed with the actress and her husband Matthew Broderick in the Broadway @ Town Hall show in Provincetown, Massachussetts, talked about what he said she told him regarding her concerns about the HBO hit series. "We, of course, talked about Sex and The City and turns out, she was reluctant to do the pilot »
Imagine what might not have been! According to Broadway veteran Seth Rudetsky, Sarah Jessica Parker revealed that when she was first approached, she wanted nothing to do with her fashion-forward HBO series, Sex in the City. In fact, she even tried to bargain her way out of her contract! "[Sarah Jessica] was reluctant to do the pilot because she didn't really want to do a series," Rudetsky, who recently starred with the actress and her husband, Matthew Broderick, in a play at Provincetown's Town Hall in Mass., [...] »
On the 28th anniversary of that legendary dance lift, the actress has since dated some of Hollywood's biggest A-listers, won a Us reality TV show and starred in no fewer than 11 TV movies. But it was a dramatic "nose job from hell" that meant that her star faded and her burgeoning career took a very different path.

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Sarah Jessica Parker channeled her iconic Sex and the City character during a date night with husband Matthew Broderick in NYC on Thursday night. The couple walked the red carpet for the opening night of the Broadway musical Hamilton and showed sweet Pda on the red carpet before taking in the performance. Inside, Sarah Jessica - who stunned in a low-cut emerald-green Elie Saab gown - also linked up with Girls star Allison Williams, which is especially funny considering Sjp is so not a Marnie. It's no secret that Sarah Jessica and Matthew are huge Broadway fans and followers; over the course of their 18-year marriage, they've starred in five and 13 productions, respectively. While Matthew is scheduled to hit the stage in October for the show Sylvia, Sarah Jessica's upcoming project has her returning to television, and specifically HBO. She'll be starring in and executive producing the comedy series Divorce, »

"This life, this is all part of life, and this is your life, so you just have to be yourself." eOne Films Us has debuted a trailer for the fun indie comedy Dirty Weekend, starring Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve. This is the latest film from filmmaker Neil Labute, and it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. The story seems to follow two random, unlikely friends who meet-up while their plane is delayed at the Albuquerque airport, ending up on a weekend of fun, or something like that. I guess it doesn't really sound as dirty as that title makes it out to be because it's much more of a lighthearted comedy, though if you dig into it there are some raunchy things going on. Never imagined we'd ever see these two in a buddy comedy. Here's the first official trailer for Neil Labute's Dirty Weekend, »

You know writer/director Neil Labute as a provocateur prone to poke, prod and instigate with confrontational takes on various social bugaboos. “Lake Terrace” explores interracial marriage, misogyny and sexism are tackled in “In The Company Of Men,” and his numerous plays and movies explore ideas concerning exploitation, power, duplicity and more. Labute has been focused on sexuality in the last several years, and he seems to be taking Alice Eve (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”) along for the ride. She starred in his 2012 roleplaying fantasy movie “Some Velvet Morning” and co-stars in the writer/director’s latest, “Dirty Weekend.” Yet our review from the recent Tribeca Film Festival says a “gentler, even sweet[er] Labute emerges” this time.

These days, Kristin Chenoweth is everywhere — on film and TV, in concert and on the Broadway stage for eight shows a week as the Tony-nominated romantic lead Lily Garland/Mildred Plotka in Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of “On the Twentieth Century.”
“This is a commitment, what I’m doing and (what) all of my fellow Broadway artists (are doing),” says the petite Oklahoman (she’s all of 4 feet, 11 inches tall) of her role as the ugly duckling piano accompanist who transforms into a swan movie star. “It’s a marathon, like being an Olympic athlete. It’s also a gift.”
And Chenoweth’s fans know it. The second she appears onstage, the audience thunderously applauds. And then comes that unmistakable voice: bigger than she is — perfect in pitch, tone and breath — from ballad to belt.
“Kristin is enormously bright and kind,” says Matthew Broderick, who starred opposite Chenoweth in »

Trainwreck is all about star Amy Schumer, but it's easy to get sidetracked by the seemingly endless parade of cameos in the movie. Basketball legend LeBron James has a substantial role, Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei star in a movie inside the movie, Matthew Broderick appears, and even WWE star John Cena is in there. It's a random assortment - and then there are the comedians. Tons of Saturday Night Live players turn up, including some you might miss if you're not paying attention. Here are 13 comedians - besides Amy Schumer - who star in the film. »
We have plenty of movie coverage here at HitFix — including Drew's rave review of this film from SXSW — but as happens when I see a film relatively early in its run, and particularly one like "Trainwreck" with a fair amount of crossover with what I cover in TV, I like to offer up a few of my thoughts, as well as a place for people who have seen the film to start discussing it. Again, this review is designed for people who've already seen "Trainwreck," and thus will have plenty of spoilers, coming up just as soon as we split the check... Amy Schumer is on an incredible roll right now. She just finished perhaps the strongest season to date of "Inside Amy Schumer" — and the "12 Angry Men" spoof is an early contender for 2015's best episode of television — and "Trainwreck" is a terrific movie introduction for her as both actress and writer. »

Hundreds of movies are released every year, and for every movie that’s released, there’s a movie poster to go along with it.
While these movie posters typically do a great job of advertising the film for a few weeks prior to release, very few of them end up being remembered for more than a few seconds, let alone months or years.
But, there are some movie posters that stand the test of time, and over the years, have become iconic works of art in their own right. We’re talking about films like Jaws, Titanic, and the many others featured below which you can purchase at any time at great sites like fastprint.

Who’ll Stop the Train?: Apatow Matures with Schumer’s Impressive Skills
The most inappropriate element of Judd Apatow’s latest film Trainwreck is its title, which promises to be a bawdy, crass marathon of blatant innuendo with a high potential for poor taste, if judging solely by its marketing publicity and reputation of its director and star/writer, comedian Amy Schumer. What a surprise to find not only a rather mature but even sensible depiction of generally undiscussed difficulties concerning relationships. Schumer shines in her own generously concocted marinade, deftly spinning an excellent characterization for herself while managing a surprising amount of appealing supporting characters. With a running time just falling over the two hour mark, you’re bound to find a few instances worthy of trimming, but Schumer’s pleasurable hurricane hits almost all its marks, a thankful reprieve from the usual glut of testosterone fueled R rated adult studio comedies. »

In today’s climate of cannibalizing existing properties to wring out every cent possible, it’s surprising that a “WarGames” remake hasn’t happened yet (though one is certainly in development). It’s been thirty-two years since the release of the John Badham-directed Cold War and science-fiction film, and what better way to revisit it than with this vintage behind-the-scenes video via Eyes On Cinema. The 1983 film follows Matthew Broderick as a high school kid who naively hacks into the sophisticated computer system at Norad, thus nearly kicking off World War III. The cast also features a pre-“The Breakfast Club” Ally Sheedy along with character actors Dabney Coleman and Barry Corbin. Running nearly four minutes long, the featurette was originally released at the time of the film’s premiere and has short interviews with both the young leads and one with director Badham as well that pinpoints exactly why genius hacker characters. »

Cars have been a staple of motion pictures since the earliest Keystone Kops two-reel comedies a century ago, usually providing fodder for chase scenes and general mayhem. Whether they’re breaking land-speed records, flying through the air defying laws of aerodynamics, or driven by intrepid heroes pursuing bad guys, cars and movies go together like…well, like movies and popcorn.Like movies and tickets. Like cars and tickets. Wait…let’s just get on with the list, shall we?
Here are the ten coolest cars in movie history, in no particular order:
1. Rendezvous: 1976 Mercedes-Benz 450Sel 6.9
Director Claude Lelouch mounted a camera on his 1976 Mercedes and tore through the early morning streets of Paris at breakneck speeds, cheating only slightly in post-production by overdubbing the sound of a Ferrari 275 Gtb engine with that of his Benz’s. Three people were in the car, with Lelouch at the wheel, »
