Supporting Actor, Personal Ballot

11 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I'm still debating Oscar's fifth slot free-for-all for Best Supporting Actor, presuming they give two spots to leading men Hugh Grant (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Dev Patel (Lion) and another two spots are held by former Oscar winner Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water) and the man I'd argue is still the frontrunner to win despite his Golden Globe loss Mahershara Ali (Moonlight). Unfortunately almost all of my favorites are quite far out of the running this year. But my final predictions will have to wait until tomorrow. For now, it's my turn. Meaning: my ballot! Mine. Mine. Mine. 

...and I do feel possessive each year about movie honors. If you're reading I presume that you, too, care deeply about acting as an artform. It can be frustrating each season to watch dozens of worthy performances winnowed down so swiftly into 5-10 Oscar potentials. So many trickily performed, gorgeously nuanced, »

Chevrolet, along with students from Detroit's Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and First Lego League, unveiled its life-size Lego Batmobile today at the North American International Auto Show. Measuring 17-feet long and featuring exclusive stud shooters, the Lego Batmobile from Chevrolet was designed to strike fear in the heart of any villain. The vehicle was inspired by Batman's Speedwagon featured in The Lego Batman Movie, which hits U.S. theaters on Feb. 10. In this exciting new animated Lego adventure, Batman, DC's iconic Super Hero who famously prefers to work alone, must learn to cooperate and connect with others to save Gotham City from The Joker. Here's what Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing, had to say in a statement.

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast And Pitch Shazam! w/Dwayne Johnson

13 January 2017 11:57 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends who ended up working at Lrm together get to pretend to be Studio Execs by casting, staffing, and/or pitching fanboy-centric projects. Last week, we made our case for what the next wave of Marvel series on Netflix should center on. This week we turn our attention towards DC's Shazam!

This week gave us the first real updates on Shazam! in quite some time. With both producer Hiram Garcia and star Dwayne Johnson (who's locked in to play Black Adam) taking to social media to hype up how well a key meeting with the WB/DC brass went. Johnson made a statement about how the future of the DC Extended Universe looks to embrace an outlook of "Hope, Optimism, and Fun," and that got us thinking about how to best tackle a Shazam! movie that wants to be all of those things. »

Presented Without Comment: Here Are the First Images of Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson

10 January 2017 4:56 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Throughout a lifetime, there will come occasions in which a person has to show restraint. Take the high road. Do absolutely everything in their power not to say what is on their minds.  And not because whatever those thoughts are, are not completely true and justified. Going high when they go low is never easy, chief among those reasons being because one must live with the knowledge that they are choosing to withhold very, very valid information. This is one of those times.  This evening, the very first look at Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson surfaced. The actor, brother of the highly regarded actor Ralph Fiennes, will be playing the King of Pop in a TV special on Sky »

See Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly’s Holmes and Watson shooting on location in London

10 January 2017 1:12 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Emma Withington

Back in 2016 it was announced that dynamic comedy duo Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly would reunite for the first time since Step Brothers (2008), as Holmes and Watson.

Holmes and Watson is set to take on the sleuth in a whole new, comedic light. With Etan Cohen in the Director’s chair (Get Hard, Men in Black 3) and our long lost duo in the title roles, we can only imagine the pandemonium that will ensue as this project develops.

The film is currently on location in Greenwich, home of time and frequent location choice for various period productions; not forgetting the occasional superhero film, such as Thor: The Dark World (2013). This is not the first rodeo for Greenwich University and the Royal Naval College as far as Holmes adaptations are concerned, oh no, Sherlock Holmes a Game of Shadows (2011) was also shot here.

Latest Pair Of TV Spots For The Lego Batman Movie Find Bruce Wayne Flaunting His Skills

10 January 2017 10:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We are, at the time of writing, exactly one month away from the theatrical release of The Lego Batman Movie – and we couldn’t be more excited.

Chris McKay’s feature-film debut, one produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller of The Lego Movie, heralds the return of Will Arnett’s Caped Crusader, a lonely old vigilante who spends his spare time flaunting his skills in the Batcave – much to the bemusement of Ralph Fiennes’ Alfred. Gotham City is under siege once again, though, and it is Zach Galifianakis’ Clown Prince of Crime that hopes to invoke full-blown anarchy.

He won’t do so alone, however, as The Lego Batman Movie also features many of the iconic villains from Batman’s Rogues Gallery, including the Riddler, Catwoman, Penguin, Bane, Scarecrow, Gentleman Ghost, Calendar Man, the Condiment King and Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face. Rounding out that enviable lineup of pint-sized »

The Lego Batman Movie: New TV Spots!

10 January 2017 10:10 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

When The Lego Movie came out, I paid it no attention figuring it was just a kid's movie, (you would think I would have learned my lesson from downplaying Frozen) and it was at least a year before I got bored and gave it a shot. Much to my surprise, I Loved the movie, and I was particularly enthralled by a certain cowl wearing character from the film; Lego Batman.

By the way, I see what the creators did with him. They parodied all the negative aspects of Batman, cranked it up to 11, and came out with one of the most self-absorbed, narcissistic, pain in the arse characters ever to be invented. But if you are Lego Batman, you are shunned by your fellow Justice Leaguers and your only friend may be someone more obsessive than you are. Check out the brand new TV spots below from The Lego Batman Movie »

8 January 2017 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

THR is reporting that Ralph Fiennes and Hugh Laurie have signed on to the cast of Holmes and Watson, the latest collaboration between Talladega Nights and Step Brothers stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.

Details of Fiennes and Laurie’s characters are being kept under wraps, but the site reports that the duo “will slip on the shoes of two beloved characters from the Holmes oeuvre”.

The film sees Ferrell as Arthur Conan Doyle’s master detective Sherlock Holmes, with Reilly as his sidekick Dr. John Watson. Also featuring in the cast are Rebecca Hall (Christine), Rob Brydon (The Huntsman: Winter’s War), Kelly Macdonald (Brave) and Lauren Lapkus (Jurassic World).

Newswire: Ralph Fiennes and Hugh Laurie will British up Will Ferrell’s Sherlock Holmes movie

7 January 2017 11:05 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ensuring that there’s at least a bit of authentic, Grade-a Great Britain in Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s upcoming Holmes And Watson, Variety reports that certified British people Ralph Fiennes and Hugh Laurie have both joined the comedy’s cast. It’s not clear what roles the two actors will be playing, although it’s easy to imagine any number of contrasting scenarios between their quiet English dignity, and Ferrell and Reilly’s bumbling stabs at detection. (To be fair, we don’t know that the two actors will be playing the famous literary detectives as dim-witted goofballs, but it seems like a pretty safe deduction to make.)

Fiennes—who plays stalwart butler Alfred in the upcoming Lego Batman—hasn’t had an on-camera role since last year’s Hail, Caesar!, when he co-starred in our favorite movie scene of 2016. Laurie, meanwhile, has been spending his ...

Sundance 2017: Sony Pictures Classics Buys Luca Guadagnino’s Gay Romance ‘Call Me By Your Name’

7 January 2017 8:40 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sony Pictures Classics has bought the worldwide rights to Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name” ahead of the Sundance Film Festival. The movie reportedly attracted interest from several buyers and sold for a price in the low to mid-seven figures.

One of the hot acquisition titles at the festival identified by IndieWire last month, the film centers on the romance between an adolescent boy played by Timothée Chalamet (“Homeland”) and a summer guest (Armie Hammer) at his parents’ mansion on the Italian Riviera. Guadagnino previously directed 2015’s “A Bigger Splash” and 2009’s “I Am Love,” both of which starred Tilda Swinton.

Robin Goes In For A Hug In New Lego Batman Movie Promo

7 January 2017 7:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back when Warner Bros.’ The Lego Movie hit theatres in 2014, it took everyone by surprise. People weren’t really expecting much from the animated flick, but $469 million and 217 fresh reviews on Rotten Tomatoes later, and the film quickly became the talk of the town. Sensing much potential for a full blown franchise, the studio immediately ordered up a sequel along with a couple of spinoffs.

Next up for the series will be The Lego Batman Movie, featuring Will Arnett as the Caped Crusader after a scene stealing role in the original film. Set to bring us more gorgeous animation, laugh out loud gags and presumably, a story with a real sense of heart buried beneath its irreverent spirit, the spinoff is only about a month away now and as such, Warner Bros. has kicked the marketing machine into high gear.

From beautiful posters to amusing holiday promos, fans have certainly »
