18 July 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”) will be feted at Deauville American Film Festival with a tribute.

Previous Deauville honorees include Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Susan Sarandon, Robin Wright and Naomi Watts.

“Through her successive roles, (Chastain) has confirmed her emotional capacity to grab the limelight like no one since Nicole Kidman, and the Festival presented her with its “New Hollywood” award.(…) We salute her grace and talent, and the beauty of the truth she brings to her performance, which Christopher Nolan and Guillermo del Toro will raise to new heights in their forthcoming films,” said Bruno Barde, Deauville’s artistic director.

Added Barde, “The tribute is a token of our affection, admiration, recognition and esteem for the talent of the recipient. For the past few years, we have been paying tribute to those actresses who embody the cinema of today, and who will form the legacy of tomorrow.”

Meet the Man to Blame for Selfies

14 July 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Esquire Network has found the man who takes credit for inventing the selfie. Jean Pigozzi isn't responsible for that horrible phrase, and probably wasn't the first person to take his or her own picture. But he is a forerunner in the practice of latching onto celebrities and persuading them pose for pictures you take yourself. Also read: Susan Sarandon and Jimmy Kimmel Recreate ‘Thelma & Louise’ Selfie (Video) “I have a very long arm,” he explained at a Television Critics Association panel Monday. “If you have a very long arm, it's easier to do it.” He explained the appeal of the selfie:. »

CIA Marks a Month on Twitter With Regrets About Tupac, More Answers to Conspiracy Theorists' Burning Questions

7 July 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Someone over at the Central Intelligence Agency is a regular comedian. The CIA marked its one-month Twitter anniversary today by answering the top five burning questions that have been lobbed its way since the government agency sent conspiracy theorists into a social-media frenzy. First off, we'll predict that a lot of the thousands of questions that didn't make the top five involve subjects like JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Area 51, national security, 9-11, Benghazi, why Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins really broke up, etc. All so par for the course, right? But what did make it through the surely strict screening procedure was a question about the fate of Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down on Sept. »

Box Office: Lessons From a Weak July 4th Weekend

7 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

1. Somebody really likes "Transformers." For a smash hit film series, Michael Bay's giant-robot franchise gets awfully little love, at least in public. It's like porn; everyone claims to find it loathsome, but in secret, someone is watching it and making it a huge success. Last week, of course, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" cruised easily to No. 1 because no other wide release film was willing to challenge it. This weekend, it faced three new wide release challengers and still came out far ahead of all of them. It lost 64 percent of last week's business and still grossed an estimated $36.4 million, more than $15 million ahead of its nearest rival, and enough for a ten-day total of $174.7 million. If everyone hates these movies so much, who are the 22 million people who've already paid good money to see the fourth installment? Show of hands, please, and don't be shy.

2. Eric Bana is not a movie star. »

Career Watch: Superhot Melissa McCarthy Needs to Improve on 'Tammy'

7 July 2014 3:50 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Plenty of people – especially those dismayed by the continued dearth of women who occupy Hollywood power seats – want Melissa McCarthy to continue to prove herself  to be the female equal of such bankable male laugh-getters as Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell both onscreen and behind the scenes. She has already steamrolled over such rom-com princesses as Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz as cinema’s top-banana funny lady after last year’s top-20 box-office hits “The Heat” and “Identity Thief.” But “Tammy,” her first film as a solo headliner (with an assist from scene-stealer Susan Sarandon) that offers an uncommon opportunity for a comic actress to flex her multi-hyphenate muscles as star, co-writer and co-producer (with hubby Ben Falcone directing), is causing even her most zealous supporters concern.  “Tammy,” a bumpy road-trip adventure with too few belly laughs that reduces the usually large-and-in-charge McCarthy to small-town sad-sack status, »

Tammy Movie Review

6 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Tammy Director: Ben Falcone Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney, Toni Collette, Sandra Oh, Dan Aykroyd, Kathy Bates. Not all entertainment couples turn out to have such cinematic chemistry as Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton. Melissa McCarthy is a very talented actress, but under the direction of her husband Ben Falcone – with whom she co-wrote ‘Tammy’s’ script – she rubber-stamps the portrayal of the slovenly buffoon. The premise isn’t very imaginative. Tammy has a catastrophic day: while driving she hits a deer that damages her car, she gets fired from work and when she returns home she finds her husband having a romantic dinner with another  [ Read More ]

The Best Lines About 2014′s Worst-Reviewed Films (So Far). Thanks, ‘Tammy!’

6 July 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Lost in a long and sleepy holiday weekend’s ennui, we couldn’t help ourselves: We’ve pulled together lines culled from the funniest/worst movie reviews so far this year, pulling out some jewels. Here’s what we came up with: Tammy (Opened July 2, 27% Rotten Tomatoes Score) Melissa McCarthy‘s film sees her once again working the schtick as an in-your-face femme, this time on the road with her just-as-crass granny (Susan Sarandon). Given that the film seems to be headed into a ditch after a weak open, one can’t help wondering whether the Bridesmaids thesp’s routine is aging fast. “The good news is that Tammy is […] »

Tammy Review

4 July 2014 6:10 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With one act of using a sink as an impromptu toilet, Melissa McCarthy proved to be the break out star of Bridesmaids, her over the top, profanity ridden schtick proving to be a massive draw with audiences, one that propelled her to lead roles in Identity Thief and The Heat. It's a routine that has served her well, and one which she employs again as the lead role in Tammy, a movie she co-wrote with husband, and director, Ben Falcone. For the most part, it is McCarthy doing what she does best, but there is also some heart hidden between the f-bombs and down right despicable behavior. Tammy, a slob stuck in a dead end fast food job, is having a very bad day. She has totalled her car, lost her job and husband, and her attempts to leave town and start a new life sees her saddled with her »

It's time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she's broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option-with a car, »

Tammy review: Melissa McCarthy loses her way in comedy road trip

4 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ben Falcone; Screenwriter: Ben Falcone, Melissa McCarthy; Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, Ben Falcone, Allison Janney, Dan Aykroyd; Running time: 97 mins; Certificate: 15

There's a whiff of white trash (and something else) about Tammy, a comedy fronted, produced and co-written by Melissa McCarthy still riding the success of Bridesmaids and The Heat. She has charisma in spades, and its truest measure is that she remains watchable whilst playing a bland character in a badly-made film where even her veteran co-star, Susan Sarandon, emerges quite scathed.

As an introduction, harming an animal is never the safest way to score points with viewers, but Tammy's high-speed collision with a deer immediately brings out her caring side as much as her carelessness. She tries to revive it in a scene that's more awkward than funny, arguably because she doesn't commit to the mouth-to-mouth gag. Essentially, though, there is no punchline. »

Tammy Review

4 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There’s nothing like watching a good, old-fashioned road trip movie on the big screen. From Sideways to Easy Rider to Planes, Trains and Automobiles, it’s a genre that has thrown up several classics across the past few decades. However sadly the same can’t quite be said of Tammy, with Melissa McCarthy starring as the title role in her husband Ben Falcone’s directorial debut.

The very same day Tammy is sacked from her job at a fast food chain, she returns home to find her husband with another woman. She instantly storms over to her mother’s (Allison Janney) house to pick up her grandmother Pearl’s (Susan Sarandon) car to drive away and clear her head. The problem is, Pearl is adamant she tags along, and so Tammy sets off towards Niagara Falls with her alcoholic grandma, stopping off at their relative Lenore’s (Kathy Bates) en route. »

Box office preview: 'Tammy' takes on the Transformers

3 July 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Melissa McCarthy’s over-the-top comedy Tammy (C+ Cinema Score) bursts into theaters this long Fourth of July weekend to challenge Michael Bay’s over-the-top Transformers: Age of Extinction for the No. 1 spot. Will Americans choose an original comedy or the latest summer blockbuster to escape the heat and barbeques? It could be close.

Also opening wide is the E.T.-like Earth to Echo (A- Cinema Score) and the horror pic Deliver Us From Evil (B- Cinema Score). It’s the rare summer weekend without any sequels or franchises, and it won’t hold a candle to the same weekend »
