Harry Connick Jr. is having a tough time getting famous friends to turn up for his new daytime talk show, The Wrap has learned. “Harry,” which NBC is syndicating to nationwide markets starting September 12, has reached out to the singer’s former colleagues on “American Idol” for guest appearances during the show’s crucial early weeks. But ex-“Idol” judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban, along with host Ryan Seacrest, have yet to commit, sources close to the situation say. Nor are they the only A-listers to blow off “Harry.” Former big-screen co-stars Sandra Bullock and Jodie Foster haven’t said yes either, »

Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Almost Holy (Steve Hoover)

The most fascinating part of Steve Hoover‘s latest documentary Almost Holy is how its subject Gennadiy Mokhnenko parallels the life of well-known Russian cartoon Krokodil Gena. The latter deals with a lonely crocodile zoo worker named Gena and his friend Cheburashka: a young, abandoned creature rejected by the establishment employing him. The two therefore construct a home for the lonely as »

Young Hollywood: Today’s Stars Have More Options, But Less Privacy

16 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On his first trip to New York three years ago, Vine star Cameron Dallas learned an important lesson: It’s never a good idea to invite your Twitter followers into your hotel room. It was a cold night, and two of his social-media-savvy groupies — twin girls — had been sending him messages on Twitter saying they were camped on the sidewalk outside. Dallas, 18 at the time, gave them his floor number and told them to come up. But after taking selfies in the hall, the twins stormed his room.

“They were like, ‘Can we watch you sleep?’ ” recalls Dallas. “I was stunned.” He finally had to physically drag them back into the hall. “They were grabbing onto the doors,” he says. “I really had to pull.”

Not All Sequels Suck

12 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Helen Murdoch with ten sequels that are actually decent…

2016 has been hit and miss for sequels and reboots. So far we’ve had the dull Independence Day: Resurgence, the reboot of Ghostbusters, as well as the forgettable Now You See Me 2 and Bad Neighbours 2. Sitting through the latest Alice in Wonderland film was physically painful and a complete misfire. Whilst it seems that we’re dying for more original material, I thought it was worth reminding everyone that not all sequels are bad. In face some can argue that some sequels are better than the originals.

For the sake of this list and to keep it to a top 10, I’ve excluded the superhero genre so no Marvel or DC love here. I’ve also taken out planned adaptations i.e. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Jason Bourne.

Comment at the bottom of this article with your favourite sequels. »

The aliens have made their 'Arrival' - so what do they look like?

9 August 2016 12:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes and clips and puts it all in perspective. The first thing we all wonder about when we take all of our friends and family to see a movie with aliens in it is what do the aliens look like? Are they the humanoid dudes with bug heads like in District 9? Are they the amazing H.R Giger creatures from Aliens? Are they the small grey guys from Close Encounter of the Third Kind? The worst thing that's ever happened in American cinema is when Jodie Foster traveled eight trillion light years only to end up in Pensacola, Florida to meet an alien who chose to look like her dad. That was awful. We can never repeat that atrocity committed on film.  This trailer for Arrival smartly doesn't tell us what the aliens look like yet. Amy Adams plays a linguist, »

1 August 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fittingly enough for such a bloody, angry movie, “Taxi Driver” celebrates its ruby anniversary this year. Occasioned by that 40-year milestone, the fine folks at Park Circus are doing their thing and re-releasing Martin Scorsese’s classic, which remains a standout among his vast body of work and the watershed decade of which it’s an essential part. Watch its new trailer below.

Like the film itself, this new look focuses on evincing a most unsettling mood: “All the animals come out at night,” Robert De Niro narrates as his Travis Bickle roams the streets of New York from behind the wheel of a cab. “Someday a real rain will come and wash all the scum of the streets.” “Taxi Driver” may always be best remembered for its “You talkin’ to me?” sequence, »

Watch: Tim Matheson as Reagan in Nat Geo's 'Killing Reagan' Trailer

31 July 2016 6:37 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Last time I checked, I am in control here." We don't usually cover TV trailers, but this one seems like it's worth making an exception for. Killing Reagan is a feature film for the National Geographic Channel made by filmmaker Rod Lurie. It's an adaptation of the book of the same name retelling the events of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan in March of 1981. Actor Tim Matheson plays Reagan, Cynthia Nixon plays his wife Nancy, and the cast includes Joe Chrest, Joel Murray, Gary Weeks, and Kyle S. More as John Hinckley Jr, who tried to shoot Reagan while at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. in an attempt to impress actress Jodie Foster. Even though this is technically a TV movie, it looks like it has some strong performances in it, and it might be worth catching when it airs. Take a look. Here's the »

John Hinckley Jr. -- History of Deception During Previous Releases

28 July 2016 11:34 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Prosecutors strongly objected to John Hinckley Jr.'s release from a psychiatric hospital due to the fact he lied about his whereabouts multiple times when he was temporarily released in recent years. Federal Judge Paul Friedman wrote a 103 page opinion when he signed off on Hinckley's release -- and in the docs he says the government pushed for more restrictions and protective measures for President Reagan's would-be killer. The government pointed out that when »

Ronald Reagan's Daughter Slams Release of His Attempted Assassin, John Hinckley Jr.

Former President Ronald Reagan's daughter Patti Davis is slamming a federal judge's recent decision to release her father's would-be assassin, John Hinckley Jr., from a government psychiatric hospital. "I'm not surprised by this latest development, but my heart is sickened," Davis wrote Tuesday in an emotional statement on her website. She criticized Hinckley's lawyers and the team of doctors that "said that his psychosis and depression have been in remission for decades and his narcissistic personality disorder has lessened ... quite a feat since narcissistic personality disorder is considered incurable." Hinckley, 61, will be freed from the St. Elizabeth's mental hospital in Washington, »

Watch Conan's Young Han Solo Auditions with 50 Cent, Adam Sandler and More

27 July 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month during Star Wars Celebration, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy made it official by announcing Alden Ehrenreich as the Young Han Solo, who will star in the upcoming spinoff Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. A week later, during Comic-Con, Conan O'Brien took his late-night talk show to San Diego for a series of live tapings, where he showed fans some of the other major stars who also tried out for the Han Solo role, before Alden Ehrenreich won the coveted part. As you can see, the young actor had plenty of worthy competitors.

Of course, this video that surfaced on Team Coco YouTube after its broadcast is fake, with several beloved comedians and other celebrities donning that iconic Han Solo vest to try out for the role. This audition reel features stars such as Bill Hader, Will Arnett, Melissa McCarthy, Thomas Middleditch, Jodie Foster, Adam Sandler, Kumail Nanjiani, »

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: The bizarre yet humdrum lifestyle of John Hinckley

27 July 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The world learned today that a judge has granted freedom to presidential assassin John Hinckley Jr., the man who in 1981 attempted to kill Ronald Reagan in an ill-conceived “love offering” to Taxi Driver actress Jodie Foster. The news may come as a shock to many, but those who have been keeping close tabs on the Hinckley case knew that this day was inevitable. In May, Washingtonian writer Eddie Dean penned an eerily compelling article entitled “How John Hinckley Lives Now,” detailing the 61-year-old Hinckley’s current lifestyle and describing in detail the surprising amount of freedom and autonomy he had already been granted in recent years.

The “bohemian” son of a well-to-do family, Hinckley traveled to Los Angeles in the 1970s to pursue his dreams of a music career. That’s where he saw Taxi Driver 15 times and became obsessed with Foster. After his infamous assassination attempt, Hinckley ...
