Ethan Hawke reflects on his career at Nyff celebration

5 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

For Ethan Hawke, the past two years have resulted in a series of culminations. Last year, Before Midnight, which closed out his trilogy with Richard Linklater and Julie Delpy, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival; Boyhood, which he made with Linklater over 12 years, premiered there this year. And now he’s celebrating the completion of his documentary, Seymour: An Introduction, as it makes stops at various film festivals. So it makes sense that Hawke was prone to look backwards when feted at the New York Film Festival during its “An Evening With…” event.

Robin Williams season for Mind at Prince Charles Cinema

5 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Prince Charles Cinema in London's Leicester Square has announced a Robin Williams season in memory of the actor who passed away in August.

Six of the actor's films will be screened in November and December to raise awareness and funds for mental health charity Mind.

Last month, the cinema raised £2,700 for Mind with special screenings of Williams's Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society.

Director of fundraising at Mind Kathleen Miles said: "We have all been genuinely touched by the generosity of Prince Charles Cinema, and their wonderful audience, who have dug deep to support Mind as they celebrate the remarkable career of Robin Williams.

"Depression is a very real illness, which can affect anybody regardless of their age, gender, ethnic group, profession or social status, and money raised during the Prince Charles Cinema Robin Williams season will help Mind to be there for anyone experiencing a mental health problem. »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

5 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Here's the Funny Story Billy Crystal Told at Robin Williams Memorial

6 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In June 2004, as the nation watched Ronald Reagan's funeral in Washington, D.C., Billy Crystal's phone rang. It was Reagan on the line. Well, the voice sounded exactly like the 40th U.S. president, but the caller was brilliant impersonator and Crystal's longtime pal Robin Williams. Crystal asked how Reagan could be calling from the afterlife, to which Williams replied, "I'm in this strange place, and it seems to be quite hot here." Crystal shared the anecdote to rousing laughter Sept. 27 at San Francisco's Curran Theatre, where Williams' family and friends gathered

Quentin Tarantino Reopens New Beverly, But Is 35mm Sustainable?

30 September 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After temporarily shuttering its doors in late August, announcing takeover of theater programming and throwing digital out the window, celluloid defender Quentin Tarantino has reopened the New Beverly in Los Angeles. According to Variety, 35mm-collector Tarantino has lined up an October slate including films from the late Paul Mazursky ("Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice") and the late Robin Williams ("The Best of Times"), as well as a double bill of Luc Besson's "The Professional" with Tarantino's own "Pulp Fiction," both 20 years old this October. (Tarantino defends not only 35mm projection, but also shooting in 35mm.) In August, Tarantino told La Weekly: "I want the New Beverly to be a bastion for 35 millimeter films. I want it to stand for something. When you see a film on the New Beverly calendar, you don’t have to ask whether it’s going to be shown in Dcp [Digital Cinema Projection] or in 35 millimeter. You know it’s. »

Counterculture and Hollywood Converge at Mill Valley Film Fest

30 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Part of the Mill Valley Film Festival’s charms is how it reflects both the local community’s roots and its forward-thinking spirit. Situated just beyond Sausalito as you cross the Golden Gate Bridge northbound from San Francisco, Mill Valley is many things to many people: part dot-com millionaire bedroom community, post-hippie enclave, Arcadia for Bay Area rock royalty and bucolic getaway in the midst of the redwoods.

And even though it doesn’t have the surprise factor of Telluride, or the market flurry of Toronto and Cannes, Mill Valley — like Santa Barbara later during awards season — has been increasingly favored by Hollywood, which looks at such desirable destinations relatively close to home as hassle-free platforms to showcase prestige product. That the festival, presented by the nonprofit California Film Institute and now in its 37th year, can boast of having screened five out the past six Oscar best picture winners »

Fox News Nabs Historic Cable Ratings Victory

30 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

No one would say the summer of 2014 suffered any shortage of breaking news. From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams' and Joan Rivers' sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on Isis, cable news has been heavily occupied. The last three months have been so big, Fox News Channel just clocked its first quarter with the most-watched primetime across all of cable in more than a decade — even besting USA and Espn.

'The Guest' Star Dan Stevens Reveals That Method Man Is a Huge 'Downton Abbey' Fan

30 September 2014 4:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

On October 10th, one of our very favorite movies of the year expands nationwide, to about 500 screens, after building considerable word-of-mouth and sterling reviews. That movie is "The Guest." And instead of being a stuffy art house movie, which follows a similar rollout (and achieves comparable buzz), "The Guest" is a down-and-dirty genre movie and probably the most fun 100 minutes you'll have in a theater all year.

The movie, from the creators of "You're Next" (writer Simon Barrett and director Adam Wingard), stars Dan Stevens from "Downton Abbey" as David, a war veteran who returns to the home of his fallen brother-in-arms. Presenting himself to the family, he says that he is there to just keep an eye on them and maybe stay until he gets back on his feet. But it turns out that David's intentions are much more malevolent, and what starts out as a tableau of suburban »

Despite his financial stability and loving relationshipo with his girlfriend Clara (Rosamund Pike), Hector feels that he's yet to achieve true happiness and that he's a bit of a fraud.
