New York Premiere: He Named Me Malala

25 September 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old (she turns 18 this July) was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the Un, »

Malala Yousafzai Inspires Guests to ‘Be A Child and Dream as Big as You Can’ at ‘He Named Me Malala’ Premiere

25 September 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager who was shot in the head by the Taliban after advocating for women’s rights, made her Hollywood debut at the premiere of Fox Searchlight’s documentary “He Named Me Malala” at New York’s Ziegfeld Theatre on Thursday night. Flashing a big smile, Malala proudly walked down the red carpet with a delegation of girl leaders from developing nations by her side and remained unfazed by the glitz and glamour.

“People here tonight supporting me, my father and the film is the biggest honor,” Malala told Variety moments before the screening. “I’m hopeful this film will spread the message about how important it is for girls and for every child to have an education. We can all create change. I’m an ordinary girl no different than any other girl, but I choose not to be silent. I choose to speak up and raise my voice for equality. »

Patrick Stewart on the Joy of Being Whipped with Wet Towels

20 August 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

During the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Patrick Stewart – who played the show's dramatically serious, almost Shakespearean Captain Jean-Luc Picard – said something he has always regretted. A veteran of serious theater, the actor projected a grave sobriety off-camera as well as on, so when fellow cast member Denise Crosby attempted to crack his exterior, saying, "Come on, Patrick, we've got to have fun sometimes," he blew up. "'We're not here to have fun,' that was my line," the actor says. "I yelled it. What an asshole. »

Omar Sharif in 'Doctor Zhivago.' Egyptian star Omar Sharif, 'The Karate Kid' producer Jerry Weintraub: Brief career recaps A little late in the game – and following the longish Theodore Bikel article posted yesterday – below are brief career recaps of a couple of film veterans who died in July 2015: actor Omar Sharif and producer Jerry Weintraub. A follow-up post will offer an overview of the career of peplum (sword-and-sandal movie) actor Jacques Sernas, whose passing earlier this month has been all but ignored by the myopic English-language media. Omar Sharif: Film career beginnings in North Africa The death of Egyptian film actor Omar Sharif at age 83 following a heart attack on July 10 would have been ignored by the English-language media (especially in the U.S.) as well had Sharif remained a star within the Arabic-speaking world. After all, an "international" star is only worth remembering »

'Back to the Future': 30 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Time-Travel Classic

3 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Since its release 30 years ago this week (on July 3, 1985), "Back to the Future" has been everyone's favorite time-travel movie. It's remained a must-see long enough for Marty McFly's own kids to enjoy it.

Even so, there's much you may not know about the beloved sci-fi comedy, from the unused ideas that popped up in other films, to why there has yet to (thankfully) be a reboot. To celebrate the film's 30th anniversary, we're firing up the flux capacitor and traveling back 30 years to learn the secrets of "Back to the Future."

1. Director Robert Zemeckis and co-screenwriter Bob Gale (pictured above) tried for years to create a time-travel story. The key came in 1980, when Gale was looking over his father's high school yearbook and wondered whether he and his father would have been friends if they'd both been teenagers at the same time.

2. Zemeckis and Gale took their idea to Steven Spielberg, »

What do the cast of Back to the Future look like now? Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, more

3 July 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the run-up to Back to the Future's 30th anniversary on July 3, Digital Spy presents a week of special features celebrating the time-travel classic.

Great Scott! Has it really been 30 years? Back to the Future celebrates a landmark anniversary this week, so to mark the occasion we take a look back at the film to find out what the cast were doing then and where they are now.

We get all misty-eyed and nostalgic about Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and their Bttf cast-mates below!

Michael J Fox

A huge teen idol thanks to his role in sitcom Family Ties, Fox initially wasn't able to play Marty McFly due to a scheduling conflict with his TV show. The part of Marty went to Eric Stoltz, he was fired five weeks into filming, then Fox jumped on board as a last-minute replacement. The schedule was gruelling (10am-6pm on Family Ties, »

Nicolas Cage and Mike Figgis Reunite for First Time Since 'Leaving Las Vegas'

15 May 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Mike Figgis has tapped Nicolas Cage to star in his thriller "Exit 147," THR reports. Written by Travis Milloy ("Pandorum"), the darkly humorous film follows Cage as a corrupt policeman who arrests a woman's abusive partner, only to become entangled in a series of sick mind games. The film will weave various story strands with multiple characters. "This is the kind of story that turns up once in a blue moon," Higgis told THR of this "dream project for a small ensemble." Figgis hasn't had a film hit quite as hard since his "Leaving Las Vegas," a deeply depressing story of a failed screenwriter (Cage, unhinged and sympathetic, won the Oscar that year) who meets a heart-of-gold prostitute (Elisabeth Shue, also nominated that year) on his way to rock bottom. Cage will soon be seen in Oliver Stone's Edward Snowden biopic opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt. “Exit 147″ is produced by Lenny Beckerman of Uber Content, »

3D in the 21st Century. "Piranha 3D": The Floating World

14 May 2015 10:14 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

“Yet the punctum shows no preference for morality or good taste; the punctum can be ill-bred.” —Roland Barthes, Camera LucidaThe first rude challenge of this movie is watching it without permanently devaluing Spring Breakers as a hot, precious high-conceptualist mess compared to the crisp genre elegance on parade here. I can’t be certain, but it seems like Harmony Korine dreamed up his movie drowsing behind his shades during a matinee reverie of this insta-classic. If not, he should have! The plot has a documentary-like simplicity. Maybe it really happened. Ancestral fish-freaks buzzsaw into the thumping “sexy-time” heart of American youth culture, during a Spring Break weekend on a desert lake in Arizona. That’s it. The Sayles/Dante original, recall if you must, was a lame anti-authoritarian parable (the seminal proto-SyFy Channel movie) with occasional dark comic touches. Piranha 3D is not a parable of anything, thank Corman! It »

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

6 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

CSI to Be Cancelled, But Will It Get a Farewell Season?

1 May 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Plenty of comedy has been mined from the fact that network television is now mostly a wasteland of procedurals in which women are gruesomely murdered, but that trend’s origin show is coming to an end. CSI first premiered in 2000, where it quickly became a smash hit for CBS, offering a science-geared alternative to the litany of doctor and lawyer shows that dominated TV at the time. It has since spawned multiple spinoffs, and while CSI: Miami and CSI: NY are long gone, it appears that the mothership show is poised to join them. The writing has been on the wall for some time as ratings have waned, and current star Ted Danson (side note: Yes, Ted Danson is the star of CSI right now) reached the end of his contract with the 15th season, which aired its finale in April. CBS just launched a new spinoff, the Patricia Arquette-fronted CSI: Cyber, »

StreamFix: 'Star Wars' cast members in other movie classics

16 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's a bigger "Star Wars" day today than usual, so why not celebrate it with a trip into the cinematic past? On StreamFix we're counting up the best options for online viewings of classics starring old and new cast members from "Star Wars." Here's where you should begin in your trek to experience these stars at their best. Harrison Ford: "Witness" (Netflix) I'll just say it: This is the greatest movie in Harrison Ford's oeuvre. A suspenseful, great-looking movie with superb storytelling (the '85 Original Screenplay Oscar winner) and a damn good role for Kelly McGillis. It's about our man H. Ford protecting an Amish boy who witnesses a murder, but there are too many interesting anomalies to discuss within. I'll mention only two: This is the first of two action movies starring blond Russian dance icon Alexander Godunov (the other being "Die Hard," of course), and it »

6 Movie Recasts Too Obvious to Ignore

4 March 2015 4:14 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Fans don’t want to see it. Studios try to avoid it. But sometimes a recast in the midst of a movie franchise is inevitable.

Whether it be a scheduling conflict, salary negotiations gone wrong, or even an unexpected death – we’re taking a look at six times a movie recast was too obvious to ignore.

1. James “Rhodey” Rhodes – The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Terrence Howard played James “Rhodey” Rhodes in 2008’s Iron Man. But a salary conflict stopped Terrence from returning for the sequel. Re-casting Don Cheadle as Rhodey for Iron Man 2 was a bit obvious, so Marvel made a light of it in the 2010 sequel. Cheadle’s first line: “Look, it’s me. I'm here. Deal with it. Let's move on.”

2. The Incredible Hulk – The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Edward Norton played The Incredible Hulk in the 2008 standalone film. But when it came time for The Avengers, Marvel decided the team would assemble sans Norton. [link »

Ten Best: Nicolas Cage roles

26 February 2015 3:29 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Cult favourite Nicolas Cage has carved out an eclectic and brilliant career spanning the decades and across genres, with forays into action, drama and comic book adaptations to name but a few. To celebrate the release of his latest film, Dying of the Light, out on Blu-ray and DVD from the 2nd March 2015 courtesy of Signature Entertainment, we take a look back at some of his greatest roles.

Dying of the Light (2015)

This brilliant thriller, directed by Paul Schrader and executive produced by cinematic wunderkind Nicolas Winding Refn, stars Cage as Evan Lake, a desk-bound Langley CIA agent, forced into retirement by signs of early onset dementia. At the same time he discovers that his former nemesis, Jihadist Muhhamed Banir (Alexander KarimZero Dark Thirty, TV’s Tyrant), is not dead as has been assumed for the last two decades, but alive and receiving experimental medical treatment.

Exclusive Cool Video: Movie CliffsNotes - The Karate Kid

The latest installment of Movie CliffsNotes takes us back to one of the most notable films of the '80's: The Karate Kid, starring Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, Elizabeth Shue, and William Zabka. Growing up, this was a film that was in regular rotation for me, right next to The Goonies, Pee-wee's Big Adventure, The Dark Crystal, and Robocop (yes, my parents were shitty at monitoring ratings).
