Here's all the awesome stuff leaving Netflix in June

26 May 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Silence of the Lambs" This is definitely my favorite Best Picture-winning horror movie featuring Chris Isaak in a supporting role. Let's just think about the glamor of 1991 for a minute: "Point Break" occurred. Kate Nelligan was in whatever movie she wanted. CeCe Peniston was a reigning pop star, which is important because her last name has "penis" in it. And "Silence of the Lambs" was an ominous and unconventional movie that everyone agreed was fantastic. Anthony Hopkins is in "Silence of the Lambs" for less than 20 minutes but his performance lingers far after the credits roll. Jodie Foster is charismatic and august as Clarice Starling, who is no mood for fava beans by the time the movie is over. "Rain Man" I keep pretending I'm incapable of enjoying Tom Cruise in movies anymore, yet "Rain Man" is about as timeless and likable as a 1988 drama is allowed to be. »

You Will LOL So Hard at Hearing What Julia Roberts, Liam Neeson, and More Sound Like in Real Life

22 May 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It seems that Julia Roberts, Daniel Craig, Hugh Grant, and Liam Neeson have been keeping a major secret from the public for their entire careers. In a hilarious exposé that aired as part of Thursday's Red Nose Day special on NBC, some of Hollywood's biggest stars came clean about what their voices really sound like. "Julia is incredible to work with and there's no doubt that she's a brilliant actress, but, um, I've just been directing her . . ." Jodie Foster tells the camera about Julia. "And she has what I'd describe as a . . . distinctive voice? But it's not what I would associate with a Hollywood leading lady." The camera then cuts to Julia, who reveals an incredibly deep and manly voice. And while Julia's voice is shocking, it's not until some of Hollywood's biggest action stars start talking that the real surprise begins. Watch the hilarious clip above to see what we mean, »

The truth is out. Proving that there's no price too big to pay when it benefits a great cause like Red Nose Day, mega-stars such as Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson and Daniel Craig finally admitted that they've been keeping a major secret for years.

NBC will devote its primetime schedule tonight to the live “Red Nose Day” fundraising telecast that the Peacock hopes will become a franchise for the network.

Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski will emcee the three-hour telecast originated from the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan. The elaborate production promises to deliver live musical and comedy performances, taped segments produced by Funny or Die and short films. The goal is to raise money for a range of orgs dedicated to helping children in poverty.

Talent set to appear include Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Neil Patrick Harris, Jodie Foster, Julianne Moore, Coldplay and a host of others.

Game Of Thrones: The Musical Coming for Red Nose Day

20 May 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Red Nose Day, a comedy special that’s been in the U.K. since the late 1980s, and this year it will be coming to the U.S. for a primetime special on NBC airing on Thursday, May 21st at 8pm Est. Judging by the press release, it will feature every popular entertainer alive. Among them will be the Game of Thrones cast, who will be putting together Game of Thrones: The Musical with the help of Coldplay. This puts people in a difficult position: Will their love of Game of Thrones outweigh their hatred for Coldplay? Personally, I just hope it’s funny, and a Game of Thrones musical has the potential to be really good or fall flat. For example, here’s Peter Dinklage using all of his charisma to get laughs from a song about characters who have died on the show thus far: So….yeah. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Sicario’

19 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two years after making his U.S. debut with the crackerjack kidnapping drama “Prisoners,” French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve ups his own ante with “Sicario,” a blisteringly intense drug-trade thriller that combines expert action and suspense with another uneasy inquiry into the emotional consequences of violence. A densely woven web of compelling character studies and larger systemic concerns, Villeneuve and screenwriter Taylor Sheridan’s bleaker, more jaundiced riposte to Steven Soderbergh’s 2000 “Traffic” may prove too grim and grisly for some audiences and too morally ambiguous for others. But with its muscular style and top-flight cast, this fall Lionsgate release should score solid (if less than “Prisoners”-sized) business from discerning adult moviegoers, along with dark-horse awards-season buzz.

In a terrific performance that recalls the steely ferocity of Jodie Foster in “The Silence of the Lambs” and Jessica Chastain in “Zero Dark Thirty,” Emily Blunt stars here as Kate Macer, an »

Film Nerd 2.0 finds the heartbreak at the center of the original 'Bad News Bears

18 May 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toshi tends to start a movie night with a sort of weird meditative state he goes into while standing in front of the bookcase full of his Blu-rays. He can stand there for a half-hour reading titles and asking me questions, and it always entertains me to hear him slowly circle in on the thing he wants to see. Just because there have been some R-rated titles in the mix recently doesn't mean it's become a free-for-all, and there are plenty of things Toshi would like to watch that I still believe he's not ready to see, leading to some tense negotiations. What I find most interesting about those negotiations is how vividly I remember holding them from the other end of the equation. When I wanted to see a film as a kid, if my parents had any problem with it, I would turn into Clarence Darrow. I would »

George Miller Talks His Version of Contact; Likens It to Interstellar

7 May 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The sci-fi genre is an opportunity. When making a “sci-fi” movie, filmmakers have the tools at their disposal to essentially tackle any subject they want. It provides an excellent foundation for anything from a father-daughter story (Interstellar) to an epic rumination on existentialism, human evolution, and artificial intelligence (2001: A Space Odyssey). In the case of the 1997 film Contact, the sci-fi genre is used as a tool to consider one of the greatest conflicts in human history: reconciling faith and science. Director Robert Zemeckis’ movie is a solid chronicle of this push and pull between faith and science, with Matthew McConaughey standing in for the former, and Jodie Foster siding with the latter. But before Zemeckis came onboard, there was another filmmaker that was developing the adaptation of the Carl Sagan novel: George Miller. Indeed, the Mad Max filmmaker worked on the screenplay for a year with Sagan and Sagan »

A Brief (Pun Intended) History Of Lawyers In The Movies Part II

6 May 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies. Enjoy, and please refrain from suing us if you feel otherwise...

1. Devil’s Advocate (1997)

Keanu Reeves plays Kevin Lomax, a hot-shot young Florida lawyer who is all about climbing the ladder. When he gets an offer he can’t refuse from a high-powered New York firm, led by the legendary John Milton »

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Transgender Hollywood: Will Bruce Jenner Change the Industry?

5 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the first breakthrough transgender star in Hollywood, Laverne Cox has certainly mixed it up with the A-list. The “Orange Is the New Black” actress recently attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where she rubbed shoulders with the president (“Oh God — he knows who I am!”). She fan-girled out for Viola Davis at the SAG Awards, mingled with Jon Hamm at an Emmys after-party, and received a Christmas card from Beyonce. But nothing compared with the time she ambushed her idol at an Essence magazine luncheon.

“This is the hand that Oprah touched,” Cox says, extending her wrist. “I didn’t want to wash it.”

In June, Cox will slip back into the unglamorous outfit that opened these doors — the drab beige prison uniform from Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” which enters its third season. It’s one of the many priorities on the 30-year-old actress’s packed schedule. »

Meet the Ari Gold of the Art World

On April 30, under strings of fairy lights in the shadow of the phony Brooklyn in the New York Street backlot at Paramount Studios, at the start of the Paris Photo Los Angeles art fair, Hollywood muckety-mucks mixed with art-world types and assorted boldface names. There was Jim Berkus, the chairman of United Talent Agency, and the jolly Jeremy Zimmer, UTA’s CEO. There was David Hoberman, producer of David O. Russell’s The Fighter and the recent Muppets movie. And over there, Keegan-Michael Key from comedy duo Key & Peele settling into a conversation.It’s official: The Hollywoodification of the art world has begun. The interest is there on the movie-star end: Leonardo DiCaprio haunts Basel with his posse; Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, Demi Moore, Judd Apatow, Jenji Kohan, and Jodie Foster go to Paris Photo; Jim Carrey’s a painter; and James Franco is a fully credentialed performance artist who showed at Pace Gallery. »
