Itzhak Perlman Documentary to Open Hamptons Film Festival

- Rebecca Rubin
‘Things Blowing Up Good’ has been surefire entertainment since the beginning of cinema, but this ill-fated Cinerama extravaganza about the biggest explosion in recorded human history limps along despite some pretty darned impressive volcanic effects. It’s quite an entertaining spectacle, with various good performers in three soap opera plots, either overacting or loitering about with nothing to do. And don’t forget the from-left-field musical striptease.

Princess Diaries star Anne Hathaway took time out of her day to wish the movie that launched her Hollywood career a happy 16th birthday. The actress has come a long way since portraying Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia, a role that she has worked very hard to move on from to avoid being typecast in Hollywood. Hathaway now is an Academy Award winner and has had time to reflect about her beginnings in Hollywood as well as stoke the fires about the idea of a third movie that has been talked about since the release of Princess Dairies 2: Royal Engagement.
The actress took to social media to wish the movie a happy 16th birthday. Hathaway's Instagram account featured a video clip from the first Princess Diary movie with a caption that reads: "Happy Birthday Princess (Thanks Garry)." Hathaway, last seen in the giant monster comedy Colossal and who may »
Happy Birthday, Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia!
On Thursday, Anne Hathaway shared a clip from The Princess Diaries on her Instagram to celebrate the movie's 16th anniversary. In her post, she wrote, "Happy Birthday Princess (Thanks Garry) #sweetsixteen #mia4evah."
The 2001 movie -- which helped launch Hathaway's Hollywood career -- became an instant classic, spawning one sequel, The Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement, and endless talk of a third.
Julie Andrews, who starred as Hathaway's grandmother, Queen Clarisse, in both films, added fuel to the idea earlier this year when she told The Today Show, "There's always been talk about it. It's a 'yes' if they ask me, only if it happens of course."
Diaries director and Hollywood legend Garry Marshall passed away in July of 2016, but had often discussed the possibility of a third film, according to his longtime friend (and Diaries franchise star) Hector Elizondo.

We may not have heard the last of Princess Mia Thermopolis after all. It's hard to believe that it's been 16 years since The Princess Diaries first hit the big screen and introduced us to Queen Clarisse Renaldi (played by Julie Andrews). After all these years, the movie continues to be a favorite amongst Disney fans. In fact, those same supporters are still hoping for a third film in the franchise that was based on the best-selling young adult novels by Meg Cabot. In honor of the special anniversary this weekend, Entertainment Weekly chatted with the author for her thoughts on a third movie. As it turns out, moviegoers still have plenty of reason to hope.

Another D23, a massive Disney fan event, is now behind us. Over the weekend, the Anaheim convention centre was transformed into the ultimate Disney fan HQ with autograph signings by stars, fan photo ops, and all kinds of exclusive merch. It also turns into the hub of entertainment news, with 3 days of big, star-filled panels. While that was happening, I was busy covering the red carpet behind the stage, talking with all the filmmakers and stars, while a crowd of thousands of fans erupted at the big announcements being made on the other side of the wall. I did run into a few Canadian fans on the convention floor over the weekend, but in case you weren’t there, »

“The audience is so receptive and sweet and joyful, so they are the best kind of platform for you to launch a clip of your film,” Blunt told Et of the reaction to the 30-second clip, which features her lifting up an umbrella and smiling in her brand new Poppins costume. “We just finished a month ago, so it's still very real and present for me, and, you know, very new so it was very moving to see it with reacting like that.”

Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim once again demonstrated its unrivaled franchise power through Marvel, Lucasfilm, Disney and Pixar, as well as the unique mining of its animated legacy. And, in highlighting its social relevance, the emphasis was on diversity and unity in conquering prejudice and hate.
On Friday, the Expo was ecstatic over the hilarious clip of Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) getting snarky with all of the Disney princesses in “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” (November 21, 2018) — the ultimate Mouse House strut. It was also refreshing to learn that Holly Hunter’s mom, Helen/Elastagirl, will be the star of Brad Bird’s “Incredibles 2” (June 15, 2018), picks up where the last one left off in 2004, with the Underminer (John Ratzenberger) wreaking havoc.
However, on Saturday, Disney wowed them with clips and behind-the-scene footage from “Mary Poppins Returns,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “The Lion King. »
