Shall we play a game?
“WarGames,” the iconic ’80s hacker drama starring Matthew Broderick, Alley Sheedy and Dabney Coleman, will be reimagined as an interactive video with all-new characters and storylines — in which you, the viewer, decide the outcome.
The companies describe the “WarGames” interactive video as a modern take on the original, melding the interactive elements of a video game with the cinematic experience of a movie. The plot of the 2.0 version has yet to be sketched out, but execs said that there will be multiple user-controlled outcomes that will reward repeat viewings.
“We are very excited to be working with Interlude on this audience-driven interactive story experience,” said Roma Khanna, MGM Television Group and Digital president. “‘WarGames’ is the perfect MGM title for this innovative technology. »

When the Los Angeles Dodgers kick off their postseason push Oct. 9 at Dodger Stadium, not everyone in showbiz will be rooting for them. For every Bryan Cranston, George Lopez and Larry King loyal to Hollywood's home team, there is a Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin James and Matthew Broderick sporting orange and blue — the colors of the New York Mets, the Dodgers' National League Division Series opponents. The showdown is a rematch of an Nlds matchup in 2006,

While the John Hughes comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off may be a classic, it’s hardly worthy of getting a video game adaptation. However, that hasn’t stopped the folks at CineFix from giving the comedy starring Matthew Broderick the 8-Bit Cinema treatment, turning the high school hooky shenanigans into an old school video game. Ferris Bueller’s […]

Afternoon Delight: Enjoyable, Downplayed Provocation from Labute
Walking into a film called Dirty Weekend knowing it’s directed by Neil Labute, an author known for his pointedly misanthropic views of humanity often criticized for misogynistic tendencies floating around in his glorified explorations of the pathetic trappings of masculinity, one may have certain assumptions. Collaborating once again with actress Alice Eve following the enjoyable 2013 two-hander Some Velvet Morning, Labute concocts another dialogue heavy vehicle once again vaguely informed by titillating possibilities. Surprisingly, it’s potentially his least barbed appraisal of humans behaving badly to date, but ultimately never comes to the sort of money shot we’re expecting. Because of this, it leaves one with an abrupt jolt of being just another exploration of middle-aged malaise seen many times before, even though Labute manages to filter it through a pair of otherwise entertaining characters.

Read More: Tribeca Review: Neil Labute’s ‘Dirty Weekend’ Starring Matthew Broderick And Alice Eve At this point, it's probably sexist to point out that the strikingly beautiful Alice Eve is also Oxford-educated and eloquently outspoken about worldly issues. But don't get her wrong, she's proud of both her brain and her six-pack. In Neil Labute's latest film, "Dirty Weekend," which opens in limited release on September 4, Eve and co-star Matthew Broderick play co-workers who find themselves trapped on a layover in Albuquerque. The duo heads out on an adventure visiting sex shops, coffee houses and gay bars in attempt to solve a bit of a sexual mystery. As in much of Labute's work, the film features bitingly sharp dialogue and forces its main characters to explore their subconscious desires, even if society still considers them taboo. Indiewire recently hopped on the phone with Eve to inquire about "Dirty Weekend, »

Thirty years ago, Marty McFly was riding high with the smash hit Back To The Future, while Sylvester Stallone enjoyed his most successful year yet with the one-two punch of Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rocky IV. It was an era of family sci-fi and teen comedies and bullet-spraying action, where The Breakfast Club and Teen Wolf rubbed shoulders with Death Wish 3 and Commando. Then there were low-key dramas like Out Of Africa and The Color Purple, which were both awards magnets at the Oscars.
Away from all those big hits, 1985 saw the release of a wealth of less successful movies, some of which found a second life on the then-huge home video circuit. Here's our pick of 20 underappreciated films from the year of Rambo, »
For his new film Dirty Weekend, Neil Labute found the title first — a British term for a weekend spent away in secret — and went from there. “I think life is that way for a lot of people, where their private life is different than their public persona,” Labute told Vulture, who constructed his film around two such characters: Les (Matthew Broderick), a repressed family man who vaguely remembers his own drunken dirty weekend but can’t even recall what gender he romped with, and his co-worker Natalie (Alice Eve), who needles Les to open up during a company layover. In this exclusive scene from the film (opening in theaters and on VOD this Friday), she reveals quite the provocative secret of her own. “It’s a really pivotal scene,” said Labute of the moment when Natalie reveals she's in a sub/dom relationship with her girlfriend. In fact, under her »

Carrie Bradshaw would be proud! Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted on vacation with hubby Matthew Broderick and friends on Wednesday, while wearing one sexy swimsuit as she enjoyed the warm weather and blue waters on an island outside of Ibiza.

Sarah Jessica Parker hit the beach in a sleek one-piece swimsuit during her vacation in Ibiza on Wednesday. The actress, who turned 50 in March, looked better than ever while hiking, swimming, and lounging on a yacht around the island with fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg; Diane's husband, Barry Diller; and a group of friends. While it didn't appear that Sarah Jessica's husband, Matthew Broderick, was on the trip, we recently got a glimpse of the couple during a date night on Broadway earlier this month. They stepped out for the opening-night performance of Hamilton, where Sarah Jessica posed for photos with Girls star Allison Williams. It was also recently announced that Sarah Jessica will be starring in and executive producing the comedy series Divorce, which is slated to premiere on HBO next Summer.

Looking good, Sjp! While on vacation in Ibiza, Spain this week with Bff Andy Cohen and friends, Sarah Jessica Parker flaunted her killer beach body in a sexy swimsuit.

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., [...] »

His words for the characters in his films jump off the page, and they get plenty of space of shine in the upcoming "Dirty Weekend." Today we have an exclusive clip from the film.
