How Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick Became the Big Apple's Best Couple

14 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sarah Jessica Parker may be best known for her role as perennial city girl Carrie Bradshaw, but there's something else in her life that has stood the test of time: her marriage to fellow actor Matthew Broderick. Their love story reads like a Woody Allen movie: Sarah Jessica and Matthew met in 1991 after being introduced at a theater company by one of Sarah Jessica's brothers. They tied the knot in 1997 with a civil ceremony on Manhattan's Lower East Side - she famously wore a black wedding gown! - and have since become parents to son James Wilkie and twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta. They're not just one of Hollywood's longest-running celebrity couples, though - Matthew and Sjp are also widely recognized as famous figures in the Big Apple. They live in the West Village, champion important causes like arts education and music programs, and support the NYC Ballet and Unicef. »

Five Films Executive Produced By Martin Scorsese

24 March 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Wheatley’s new film Free Fire has been described as a brutally effective film and an irresistible adrenaline shot of cinema; this is perhaps unsurprising considering the talent behind it, particularly legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese who executive produced the film. In commemoration with Free Fire’s theatrical release, we have collected five pictures Scorsese was involved in but did not direct that readers may be unaware of.

Before the Flood (2016)

This documentary looks at the effect of climate change on our environment and what can be done to prevent the demise of endangered species, ecosystems and native communities across the planet. Whilst Leonardo Dicaprio’s starring role in the project makes Scorsese’s involvement somewhat unsurprising, it is still interesting to see him venture into such a timely subject matter and it is an essential addition to their extensive history of collaboration.

You Can Count on Me (2000)

Looking for a double dose of ’80s nostalgia? Yeah, we’ll take a slice of that. . Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington on Netflix’s retro supernatural drama “Stranger Things,” takes an extra-deep dive into the Reagan Era in a new ad for Domino’s.

'Stranger Things' Star Does Ferris Bueller in Nostalgic Ad Campaign

21 March 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Peckish for a slice of '80s nostalgia?

Domino's has enlisted Stranger Things actor Joe Keery, who stars as popular high school heartthrob Steve Harrington on the Netflix series, for a series of commercials based on the classic John Hughes 1986 teenage comedy Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Keery is the spitting image of Matthew Broderick's truant rebel Bueller in his acid-washed jeans and white high tops in the ad that re-enacts the climactic scene from the film in which Ferris races across backyards and hops fences to get home before his parents find out he ditched school — or, in Keery's case, to meet a »

Who Are the Best Director-Actor Duos Working in Movies Today? — Critics Survey

13 March 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “Personal Shopper,” which finds Olivier Assayas re-teaming with his “Clouds of Sils Maria” star Kristen Stewart, who is the best director / actor duo in the movies today?

Mark Harris (@markharrisnyc), Vulture and Film Comment

Every time Matthew Broderick shows up in a movie directed by Kenneth Lonergan, I smile. It might seem an odd choice given that Lonergan has directed just three movies (“You Can Count on Me,” “Margaret,” and “Manchester by the Sea”) in 17 years, and also given that Broderick has played only supporting roles in those films. But Lonergan understands Broderick so well — his haplessness, his beleaguered, flawed decency, »

Hacking Hollywood: Three Classic Movies That Put Cyber Security in the Spotlight

3 March 2017 1:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Earlier this month the world celebrated Safer Internet Day, a worthy initiative that aims to improve all aspects of web security across the online world. In the UK alone, hundreds of organisations did their bit to promote the safe and responsible use of digital technology. We’re fully behind the cause, of course, and it also brought the topic of discussion around to the history of web security and how exactly we got to be at the point we’re at today.

Now that nearly every household has access to either a laptop, smartphone or tablet (or even more likely, a combination of those), it’s easy to forget that our perception of online security is the most sophisticated it has ever been. Thanks to the efforts of many modern online security providers, tech users now tend to get a nice, user-friendly explanation of their program that translates complex industry »

Famous Primates in Film: A Brief History

28 February 2017 4:55 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Later this month, the mighty Kong returns to the big screen! To celebrate, we’re looking back at all the major primate appearances in film.

For as long as films were being made, humans have starred alongside primates. Unlike other animals, their human-like qualities can lend a sense of comedy or horror. Throughout the history of film, primates have been used to fulfill certain roles. In the early days, they were often a form of antagonist, carrying out dastardly deeds or causing mayhem. More common is the primate cast in a role of mischief, causing all sorts of comedic hijincks. While most primate roles were portrayed by live animals, it was not uncommon for men to dress up in ape suits for roles where the primates needed to carry out specific actions. Later, the advent of CGI has led to men mimicking primates in real time to create a motion-capture performance. »
