Mike Nichols Movies: 18 Essential Films You Should Watch Right Now

20 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.

Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Matthew Broderick Reveals the Priceless Secrets to His Lasting Marriage With Sarah Jessica Parker

5 November 2014 4:22 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It seems like every week we find ourselves talking about another big Hollywood breakup. Fortunately, we don't have to worry about any trouble between Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker. On Wednesday's Meredith Vieira Show, the actor was asked about his successful marriage to the Sex & The City star. Turns out, the two share an unbreakable friendship. "We really are friends beyond everything else and we talk a lot," he told Meredith Vieira when sharing his advice to couples. "Keep talking I guess, I know how cliché that is. Too much silence is definitely not a good idea." He added, "She's really funny, she makes me laugh. That's good. I wish I »

5 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Whether you’re angling for a selfie with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick or a “Cabaret” poster signed by Alan Cumming, there are many ways to give to the Broadway community’s most exuberant charity organization. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is currently in full swing, with its fall fundraising efforts—culminating in the always exciting 26th Annual Gypsy of the Year competition—and an array of other theatrical events available for theatergoers and philanthropists alike. On Dec. 8 and 9, the New Amsterdam Theatre will play host to hundreds of New York’s most talented ensembles, whose “gypsies” will perform original skits, songs, and choreography. Broadway personality Seth Rudetsky will once again host this grand conclusion to the six weeks of fundraising. “Last year’s Gypsy of the Year competition raised $4.3 million from 56 Broadway, Off-Broadway, and national touring companies’ fundraising,” Tom Viola, executive director of BC/Efa, told Backstage. “So we’ve just begun, »

60 Years of Godzilla: A History and Critique of the Greatest Monster Movie Series in Cinema

4 November 2014 3:35 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

**Massive spoilers for every Godzilla movie, with the exception of the 2014 reboot, and Mothra follow**

August 6th and 9th, 1945 forever changed the course of history. When the first nuclear bombs were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, World War II ended, but a new fear was born that dominated the thoughts of all men, women, and children for decades to come. The Cold War, atomic bomb testing, a cartoon turtle telling children to “duck and cover”, and this new technology that had the actual potential to literally end the world changed the perception of what was scary. Art reflects life, so cinema began to capitalize on these fears. Gone were the days of creepy castles, cobwebs, bats, vampires, werewolves, and the other iconic images that ruled genre cinema in film’s earliest decades. Science fiction was larger than ever and giant ants, giant octopi, terror from beyond the stars, and »

Dirty Weekend | VOD Review

Boiler Plate Weekend: Granier-Deferre’s Familiar, Forgettable Getaway

Inappropriate lovers contending with a criminal while trapped in an isolated locale is hardly an original premise on its own and Christophe Granier-Deferre’s directorial debut, Dirty Weekend, doesn’t supply the necessary energy to make up for its familiarity. Bypassing a theatrical release altogether, even its title has been subjected to reconsideration, initially titled Le Weekend (snagged by Roger Michell for his 2013 film), Neil Labute’s Alice Eve/Matthew Broderick vehicle will most likely superimpose Granier-Deferre’s alternate, as well. Rudimentary, predictable, and sometimes a bit forced in its bid for a comedic affect, you’ll see every narrative twist and turn miles before they land.

Arriving in Normandy from England for a weekend getaway, Mike’s (Jamie Palmer) actions seem immediately suspicious, finagling a car rental with cash rather than a credit card. He’s a married teacher that’s »

Broadway box office: Michael C. Hall's 'Hedwig' scores, but Carol Burnett can't boost 'Love Letters'

20 October 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's a tale of two A-list replacements: Dexter star Michael C. Hall put on some makeup for Hedwig and the Angry Inch and kicked up $544,166 for his first six performances, according to figures from the Broadway League for the week ending Oct. 19. That's down just 4 percent per-show from what Andrew Rannells took in during his final seven shows the previous week—but it still represents an impressive 85 percent of the potential gross for the Belasco Theatre. But another high-profile substitution proved less successful: Carol Burnett, returning to Broadway for the first time in a decade, failed to lift ticket sales »

This Week on Stage: Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, and Rupert Grint tear up the town

11 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Two buzzy new plays opened on Broadway this week. It's Only a Play, a Terrence McNally comedy reuniting Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, is proving to be anything but an only at the box office. It's averaging 1.2 million bucks per week and 101 percent attendance. The madcap sendup of Broadway roasts a lot of boldface names; one of its biggest targets -- New York Times critic Ben Brantley -- had a surprisingly good sense of humor about the depiction of himself. Also opening this week is the stateside premiere of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on Mark Haddon's best-selling 2003 novel. »
