Kristin Chenoweth Receives a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

24 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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 »

13 Famous Comedians in Trainwreck - Besides Amy Schumer

23 July 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

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. »

LeBron James, dirty jokes, & Amy Schumer's genius: The 'Trainwreck' spoiler review

18 July 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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. »

12 Of The Most Iconic Movie Posters of All

17 July 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

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.

#1 – Trainspotting

Trainspotting is a dark, twisted British movie released in 1996, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor.

It’s become one of the most iconic films of all time over the years, and »

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. »

Watch: Video Games Are The Latest Craze In This Vintage Behind-The-Scenes Look At 'WarGames'

9 July 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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. »

The Ten Coolest Cars in Movie History

8 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

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, »

Today Is The Day Ferris Bueller Took Off

5 June 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who said Ferris Bueller took this day off 30 years ago. I guess it's pretty serious. Actually, it was the guys at Baseball Prospectus who used incredibly deductive reasoning to figure out which Chicago Cubs game Ferris (Matthew Broderick), Cameron (Ala Ruck) and Sloane (Mia Sara) attended in John Hughes. masterpiece, Ferris Bueller.s Day Off. They figured this out back in 2011, using statistics shown on screen during the game to peg the afternoon contest between the Chicago Cubs and the Atlanta Braves on June 5, 1985 as the Wrigley Field stand that attracted the gang. They even figured out that the foul ball Ferris caught was hit by Atlanta rightfielder Claudell Washington in the top of the 11th inning. That.s fantastic. I just want to scream, "Saaa-wing batt-ah!" at my laptop »
