Gayle King Reveals Why Oprah Didn't Want to Win at the 1986 Oscars (Guest Column)

22 February 2017 5:55 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

I lived in Turkey when I was a kid, from first grade to sixth grade, so I didn't grow up thinking, "I've got to watch the Oscars." In my early 20s was when I started watching it — and I've just been hooked ever since.

It used to be about the movies. And now it’s about who’s going to the Oscars and what are they wearing. In the beginning, I never even noticed what people were wearing. I went in 1998 for Oprah’s daytime show. It was the year Sharon Stone wore that Vera Wang skirt with the white Gap shirt. I »

Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler Get Criminal in First Trailer for ‘The House’

16 February 2017 8:13 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After their days on Saturday Night Live and (brief) team-ups in Blades of Glory and Anchorman 2, it’s surprising we haven’t seen more of Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler together on screen. They’ll finally be taking dual leading roles in this summer’s comedy The House and the first trailer has now landed. The film follows the husband-and-wife pair launching an underground casino in order to pay for their daughter’s college tuition.

“They’re dealing with the idea of being empty-nesters and what that’s going to do to their lives,” Ferrell tells EW. “We basically become Sharon Stone and Robert De Niro in Casino.” Judging from this first trailer, Jason Mantzoukas seems to be in top comedic form in a supporting role and hopefully Neighbors writer Andrew J. Cohen brings the same amount of laughs in his directorial debut.

Running Wild – Review

14 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Running Wild plays like if Michael Bay directed Flicka and as the old saying goes two wrongs do not make a right. Now, if you enjoy Michael Bay (Pain and Gain and The Rock are awesome) and you enjoy Flicka, well then this might just be the movie for you. If those movies aren’t your cup of tea, though, you might want to steer clear.

The bringing up of those two recognizable names (Flicka maybe less than Michael Bay) comes with a good purpose in that the film emulates the style of one and the familiar plot elements of the other. Running Wild is about a woman (Dorian Brown, who was excellent on Wilfred) trying to keep her ranch afloat after the death of her husband. She finds a number of wild horses and brings them in with a government program that helps inmates by »

James Franco Is The Disaster Artist In New Photo For Upcoming Drama

13 February 2017 1:35 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Often referred to as the “Citizen Kane of bad movies,” Tommy Wiseau’s The Room wrote its name in cinema’s history books for all the wrong reasons back in 2003. A spluttering mess of plot holes and cringe-worthy dialogue, Wiseau’s self-confessed passion project – one which he wrote, directed and starred in – has since gone on to become something of a cult classic, and soon James Franco and Co. will introduce moviegoers to the story behind the so-called misguided masterpiece.

Its title? The Disaster Artist, a big-screen rendition of Greg Sestero’s novel of the same name. Those already familiar with Sestero’s source material will know all too well that the author pulls no punches in his autopsy of The Room, which is hardly surprising given he co-starred in the cult original as conflicted best friend Mark. Fast forward to 2017 and it is Dave Franco that will be playing the part of Mark, »

First Look At The Franco Brothers In The Disaster Artist

13 February 2017 12:37 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Even if we haven’t seen it, we have all heard of The Room, writer/director/star Tommy Wisseau’s cult movie that was all passion and very little skill, and has been described as “the Citizen Kane of bad movies”. Greg Sestero, who starred in the movie as Mark (all together now, “oh hai, Mark”), chronicled his time working on the movie in the book The Disaster Artist, which was optioned as a movie by James Franco almost three years ago. For this behind the scenes look at the making of The Room, Franco would take on directing duties as well as stepping into the role of Wisseau, with brother Dave co-starring as Sestero. On top of that, a fantastic supporting cast includes Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Jacki Weaver, Alison Brie, Sharon Stone, and Hannibal Buress. We’ve seen hide nor hair of the movie so far, but with »

What Is the Most Ridiculous Sex Scene From a Movie? — IndieWire Critics Survey

13 February 2017 9:44 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Fifty Shades Darker,” what is the most ridiculous sex scene from a movie?

Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC), Vulture/Film Comment

I’m sure others will easily top this, but I always think of Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone in the terrible 1994 action film “The Specialist,” having laboriously glossy, oiled, carefully pube-concealing, solemn, positionally exhausting intercourse while mouthing tedious expository dialogue in a shower that appears to be the size of a studio apartment. The 90s were a boom time for bad movie sex, and this is Hall of Fame level in that so much money, time and effort has gone »

Verhoeven, Gyllenhaal Talk Sex, Violence and Movies at Berlinale Talents

12 February 2017 11:02 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Opening the Berlinale Talents panel discussion series on Sunday, festival jury president Paul Verhoeven and jury member Maggie Gyllenhaal took part in a candid and humorous conversation with film historian Peter Cowie spanning politics, religion, music, astronomy, art and, unsurprisingly, sex and violence. Asked about the role of politics in film, Verhoeven, director of the Golden Globes-winning “Elle” as well as earlier hits like “Basic Instinct” and “Total Recall,” rejected the notion that politics need to be part of film while noting that time and distance offer better opportunities to tackle political subject matter. “It’s very difficult for an artist to react immediately to what’s happening. You need distance to transcend. Reacting now to the crisis we face with this Mr. Trump from a film point of view would be extremely difficult because there is so much happening. The politics of the moment will ultimately be important in the next 10 or 15 years. »

Fifty Shades vs The Mid 90s Erotic TV Movie

10 February 2017 6:18 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on Fifty Shades vs the Mid-90s Erotic TV movie…

Before you wonder, no Asylum haven’t announced their next monster mashup film. In case you were living under a rock in the past five years, a pop-cultural phenomenon called Fifty Shades of Grey stood to attention (eh thank you). A piece of internet fan fiction suddenly rode the crest of a wave, spawned a book release (plus subsequent follow ups) and then ultimately the Hollywood film treatment. To call the books artistic would be wide of the mark. They’re horribly written, trashy, and the sort of Waterstone’s bargain bin material that only the most bored housewife would have read 20 years ago, but somehow post millennium is an absolute must-read. For many it can be read as a comedy. It oozes cheese. It’s the most hokey hokum you can imagine.

That brings us to the films. »

The Weekend Warrior 2/10/17: The Lego Batman Movie, 50 Shades Darker, John Wick 2

8 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:                                                                

Bomb, bomb bomb bomb, Boooooomb!  Things just kept getting worse and worse at the box office as this past weekend saw more new releases not meeting up to their potential. The horribly-reviewed horror movie Rings (Paramount) ended up around where I predicted with $13 million, taking second place to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. The sci-fi romance The Space Between Us (Stx Entertainment) didn’t make much of a mark, opening in ninth place with just $3.8 million with about $1,300 per theater. Robert De Niro’s The Comedian (Sony Classics) tanked worse than many recent movies, making less than a million in 848 theaters or about $1,000 per theater. By comparison, the doc I Am Not Your Negro made about 78% of that amount in 800 less theaters. »

SXSW Announces James Franco's 'The Disaster Artist,' Midnight Movies and More

7 February 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Last week SXSW announced the bulk of their 2017 programming slate. And had that been it, we'd have been perfectly happy. The roster was already an impressive mixture of big studio movies (most notably Edgar Wright's Baby Driver), intriguing indies and documentaries. But that's not all the Austin, TX film festival had in store. Today SXSW announced another round of movies, including the surprise appearance of The Disaster Artist, James Franco's movie about the making of the so-terrible-it's-loved cult classic The Room. That one has a ridiculous cast that includes both Franco brothers, Seth Rogen, Sharon Stone, Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Alison Brie and a whole lot more. It's going to be something special, we're sure. The Disaster Artist probably...

Watch: The Sweet Story Behind Dirty Dancing’s Iconic “Lift” Scene

7 February 2017 3:17 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s one of the most iconic dance scenes in movie history.

In the 1987 film Dirty Dancing, the entire plot led up to a climactic dance scene in which Frances “Baby” Houseman (played by Jennifer Grey) is lifted over the head of Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze).

Audiences swooned – and Swayze was propelled onto the A-List.

In a featurette on the 30th anniversary Blu-Ray of the film, those involved with the iconic dance sequence share how difficult the scene was to pull off. Better yet, they share behind-the-scenes footage of the rehearsals. (Watch the exclusive clip above!)

The erotic thrillers that followed Basic Instinct’s success

30 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 3, 2017

When Basic Instinct hit big, Hollywood went hunting for more erotic thrillers. Er, it found some. Includes Kevin Spacey with odd hair.

When a movie hits big out of the blue, it’s unwritten Hollywood law that the imitators aren’t too far behind. That’s why, after American Pie brought Porky’s-esque sex-tinged (late) teen comedies back to prominence in 1999, the box office was flooded with similar fare for years after. The Blair Witch Project, meanwhile, hit out of nowhere, and found footage horror is only now dying away. The late Wes Craven, meanwhile, wryly noted just how quickly Hollywood had cashed in on the success of 1996’s Scream, when spoof Scary Movie popped out the year after.

Going back to 1992, though, and it was the turn of the erotic thriller to enjoy its resurgence. »
