Celebrities including J.K. Rowling, Alec Baldwin and Josh Gad are up in arms on Twitter after President Donald Trump held a combative, marathon White House press conference on Thursday in which he accused America’s news media of being “out of control.”
The president called the press conference to announce his new pick for labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, after his first pick, embattled fast-food executive Andrew Puzder, withdrew on Wednesday.
But the presser quickly went off the rails as Trump switched gears to vehemently defend his presidency and lash out at the “dishonest” press for publishing “fake news,” including about his Russia scandal. »

It’s legend now, but there was a time when Joel Schumacher was working on a follow-up to Batman & Robin, which was green-lit when Warner Bros. were ecstatic with the dailies that were coming back from its production. Since then we’ve heard many rumours about who was going to play certain roles, but a new story has come out today that has taken us all a bit by surprise.
“The only reason I did that part was because they promised me the villain part in the following Batman,” Coolio said in this interview (via The Hollywood Reporter). “Which they didn’t do because Joel Schumacher – they fired him. Me and him didn’t get along that great anyway… [In] the next »

The story — set during the height of the Cold War — follows an American cancer specialist traveling to Moscow to help prolong the life of the Soviet Politburo Chief. The doctor accidentally discovers a diabolical plan to launch a nuclear strike against China and finds himself dispatched aboard the legendary Trans-Siberian Express from Moscow to Vladivostok — and unable to alert the U.S. of China’s imminent destruction.
“With all the current news and media attention on tension surrounding U.S.-Russian-Chinese relations, this story of raw human connection set within a political landscape resonates in a particularly timely way,” said Grey Eagle Films CEO Jonathan R. Adler.

Mark Wahlberg is a man of many talents. His rhymes are fresh, his frown is legendary, and it turns out he’s pretty decent in a bout of fisticuffs.

And then there's his acting. He has been in a wealth of films, usually fighting for, or alongside, the American flag. He's a gun-toting ass-kicker, and the world seems to dig it.
This is his game, his brand. Wahlberg moves between moral, no-nonsense cop and powerful, maverick law breaker and whilst he doesn’t always play armed characters, it is »
Following major festival accolades and a short qualifying run, Magnolia Pictures' Oscar-nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro heads to more than two dozen cities this weekend. The film is the final title in the documentary category to begin its regular theatrical run. On the other end of the spectrum, Sony Pictures Classics will open Robert De Niro starrer The Comedian, which also features Leslie Mann, Danny DeVito and Edie Falco. The film will bow Friday in about 800… »
An Officer and a Gentleman, The Devil’s Advocate and Ray are just three of the movies in director Taylor Hackford’s illustrious career, although his one Oscar was for a short film he made much earlier in his career.
For Hackford’s latest movie, The Comedian, he directs Robert De Niro as Jackie Burke, a veteran comedian and star of a popular old TV sitcom, who is trying to find a new lease on life, which actually ends up with him being thrown in jail for assaulting a heckler. While doing community service, he meets Leslie Mann’s Harmony and he shares with her his love for stand-up, although her father (Harvey Keitel) doesn’t approve of the relationship.
If you ever wondered whether De Niro can do stand-up comedy, you get a lot of opportunities to see him performing mostly insult comedy ala Jeffrey Ross (who was involved »

Chicago – Mention this possibility…Robert De Niro portrays an aging stand-up comic who once had a popular sitcom in the 1980s…and 99% of filmgoers are in. Add that he beds a woman 25 years his junior, does community service, roasts Cloris Leachman and becomes a reality show host, and suddenly 80% of that 99 are out. That’s just part of the over-extension and dread in “The Comedian.”
The film had a ton of promise it just couldn’t deliver on. On the one hand, they wanted De Niro’s character to take on the role of a dirty comedian – like Bob Saget of “Full House,” trying to get rid of his clean sitcom image – and for the most part the routines work and showcased De Niro at his best. On the other hand, there was the 90% (I’m into percentages in this review) of the rest of the movie, which was hackneyed movie plot clichés, »

Nearly 35 years ago DeNiro truly stunned film fans (yes, he could do that back then) when they learned of his next big screen collaboration with Martin Scorsese. It was crazy enough that the duo would follow the brutal one-two punch of Mean Streets and Taxi Driver with a glossy homage to big splashy MGM-style movie musicals, New York, New York, but this? They seemed to be back in their comfort zone with the classic Raging Bull, when they made another big detour. A look at comedy, namely a portrait of a failed stand-up comic (he’d be dubbed a “hack” today) named Rupert Pupkin. 1982’s The King Of Comedy even co-starred the iconic Jerry Lewis, who often claimed that royal title. The film was then considered a box office flop, but the years have been most kind to it (in stand-up parlance, maybe it was “too hip for the room”). Now, »
