Ab Fab's Joanna Lumley on Kissing Leonardo DiCaprio: 'There Was Lots of Peppermint'

24 June 2016 3:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Joanna Lumley was offered the chance to kiss Leonardo DiCaprio, she did what any sane woman would do - she stocked up on mints. “There was a lot of peppermint involved," revealed the British actress on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show, reminiscing about her intimate embrace in which she "went for it" with the Hollywood star in the Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street. "We were both very clean, like a surgery.” In the Oscar-nominated film, the 70-year-old Absolutely Fabulous star plays DiCaprio's loyal Aunt Emma and the two end up locking lips on a park bench. »

Roland Emmerich Pushes Back Against ‘Stonewall’ Whitewashing Accusations, Calling the Riots ‘A White Event’

23 June 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Roland Emmerich is best known for directing blockbuster fare — “The Patriot,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “Independence Day” and its “Resurgent” sequel opening tomorrow — but the fact that an action maestro decided to tackle a movie like “Stonewall” wasn’t the most surprising part of last year’s dramatization of the Lgbt riots from 1969. Rather, it was the perception that Emmerich had whitewashed an important cultural event by focusing on a white male. The filmmaker has pushed back against that accusation in a new Guardian interview, asserting that “Stonewall was a white event.”

“My movie was exactly what they said it wasn’t,” he tells the newspaper. “It was politically correct. It had black, transgender people in there. We just got killed by one voice on the internet who saw a trailer and said, this is whitewashing Stonewall. »

The 20 Best Biopics of the Last 20 Years

23 June 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Picture the ending of the standard-issue based-on-a-true-story film. Once the picture fades on a family’s final teary goodbye or the camera pans up from our hero(ine) in a moment of triumph, there’s a postscript. And then, the inevitable grainy home video or candid photo of the “real” main character, proof that someone in the casting office (or the hair/make-up department) did their job and brought you the closest facsimile of the real thing.

This may be the most common approach, but it doesn’t produce the best biopics. Good biographies recreate a moment; great ones evoke a sprit that reverberates through the current time.

Leonardo DiCaprio to produce The Outlaw Ocean for Netflix

22 June 2016 8:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having signed a first-look deal with Netflix, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company looks to have found its first project for the streaming giant, with The Tracking Board reporting that the Oscar-winner is set to produce the action thriller The Outlaw Ocean.

Based on a series of articles by reporter Ian Urbina for The New York Times Magazine, the film will “recount the true story of a vigilante crew that stalked a fugitive fishing ship considered the world’s most notorious poacher for 110 days and across two seas and three oceans.”

Under DiCaprio’s deal with Netflix, the focus is to “produce non-fiction based films and docu-series with topical and provocative environmental themes”, which is a subject close to the actor’s heart. In addition to Netflix, Appian Way also has a first-look deal with Paramount, and reportedly has over two-dozen projects in development for film and TV.

Elizabeth Banks Says She Was Deemed ‘Too Old’ for 2002 ‘Spider-Man’ Role

22 June 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elizabeth Banks didn’t need “Spidey sense” to pick up on signs of age discrimination when she auditioned for Mary Jane Watson in 2002’s “Spider-Man” at the age of 28.

“Tobey and I are basically the same age — and I was told I was too old to play her,” Banks told Glamour UK, referring to the film’s lead, Tobey Maguire, who is about 16 months her junior. “I was like, ‘Oh, Ok, that’s what I’ve signed up for,'” she said.

The role would go to Kirsten Dunst, who was 18 years old. Banks was cast in the film, but in a supporting part.

Banks’ anecdote is the latest coming from a number of actresses who have spoken out about the age gap between male actors and their female romantic counterparts. In March, Olivia Wilde said she was deemed “too old” to play opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street. »

Elizabeth Banks lost the Mary Jane role in 'Spider-Man' because she was 'too old'

22 June 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Gorgeous, youthful Olivia Wilde made news recently when she claimed to have lost out on the role of Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in The Wolf of Wall Street because she was deemed "too old" by the powers-that-be — an especially outrageous story considering the actress is nearly a decade younger than her would-be co-star. Now you can add Elizabeth Banks to the list of actresses who have been judged too haggard and used-up to play the love interest in a major Hollywood film. “I screen-tested for the role of Mary Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movie, opposite Tobey Maguire,” she told Glamour in a new interview (via the Independent). “Tobey and I are basically the same age and I was told I was too old to play her. I’m like, ‘Oh, okay, that’s what I’ve signed up for.’” To give you a sense of what a late-20s Elizabeth Banks looks like, »

Beyond Fright: Shannon’s 4 Non-Horror (and 1 Horror) Films To Make You Lose Your Faith In Humanity

22 June 2016 5:07 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When it comes to horror movies, there are so many sub-genres: slasher flicks, creature features, supernatural and more. However, there are always those few films that transcend the horror genre and nestle themselves into a special niche category. That category is one where we watch a film and as the credits roll we promise ourselves that we will never watch that film again. Not because it’s bad per say but because it’s made us lose faith in humanity and the thought of watching it again is too much bear. To save you the trouble of watching these films, I’ve listed the five films that completely shattered my image of human nature. Watch at your own risk, unless you enjoy suffering that is. -Shannon

*Editor’s note – While some of these films might not “technically” fall into the horror genre per se’, they do a hell of a job adding to this article! »

‘Transparent’ Ratings Lag Behind Rivals on Netflix & Hulu

21 June 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amazon Studios is all the rage in the arthouse world of late, with high-profile films like Nicolas Winding Refn’s “The Neon Demon” and Woody Allen’s “Cafe Society” soon to be released. A new Variety report suggests that the studio’s success hasn’t fully translated on the television end of the spectrum, as “Transparent” — a critical favorite and multiple Emmy winner credited with bringing transgender issues to wider cultural attention — is lagging in terms of actual viewership.
