Katie Couric, Danny DeVito Politicize Gun Violence at ‘Under the Gun’ Premiere

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Under the Gun,” the provocative new documentary exploring America’s gun violence, executive produced by Katie Couric and helmed by Stephanie Soechtig, had its Los Angeles premiere at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. The controversial film drew celebrity attendees Danny DeVito, Louis Gossett Jr., Gene Simmons, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jason George and Glenn Howerton.

“I wanted to understand the disconnect between public opinion, which seems to think that we should enact certain measures to keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people, and what’s happening in Washington and the federal level,” said Couric.

The doc, which made its debut at Sundance, examines why action to curb gun violence has failed, despite multiple mass shootings across the country. “Under the Gun” makes its case through first-person narratives from victims of gun violence and gun owners.

“I wanted to tell the story of these families »

2016 TCM Film Festival – Field Of Dreams And One Flew Over The Cuckoo’S Nest

3 May 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

This past weekend, Hollywood celebrated the 7th annual Turner Classic Movie Film Festival, and this year’s slate of films did not disappoint.

Shown over 4 days and in multiple theaters along Hollywood Boulevard, the festival continues to draw bigger and bigger crowds each year.

This year’s festival treated classic film fans to over 70 movies and special guests, including Angela Lansbury, Faye Dunaway, Rita Moreno, Francis Ford Coppola, and Carl Reiner – just to name a few.

With so many films showing, its hard to choose what to see, but Wamg attended a few of the classics, along with some special presentations.

Field Of Dreams (1989)

The story goes that while Kevin Costner was filming Bull Durham (1988) he came across the script for Field of Dreams. Producers weren’t holding out for him because they assumed he wouldn’t want to do 2 “baseball movies” in a row. And thank god they were wrong. »

‘Space Jam 2’ is happening; LeBron James to lead the cast

3 May 2016 1:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Space Jam 2 has been announced, and basketball superstar Lebron James is all set to lead the cast of the forthcoming movie with Star Trek Beyond‘s Justin Lin directing.

Space Jam 2, a follow-up to the much-loved 1996 sports comedy/ animation hybrid, will potentially go into production just as soon as Lin has finished up on this summer’s Star Trek sequel, though, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s not officially signed on the dotted line as yet. If he does, Lin will also produce the film. Andrew Dodge wrote the screenplay.

Here’s the plot of the original, which starred basketball legend Michael Jordan in the lead role, along with a whole bunch of Looney Tunes characters.

Swackhammer (Danny DeVito), an evil alien theme park owner, needs a new attraction at Moron Mountain. When his gang, the Nerdlucks, heads to Earth to kidnap Bugs Bunny (Billy West) and the Looney Tunes, »

Space Jam 2 Moves Forward With Justin Lin At The Helm, LeBron James Attached

2 May 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two decades after NBA superstar Michael Jordan shot some hoops with Bugs Bunny and Co., The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that a Space Jam 2 is moving forward with Star Trek Beyond filmmaker Justin Lin at the helm.

Penning the script alongside screenwriter Andrew Dodge, it’s understood the long-rumored basketball sequel will welcome LeBron James to the fray, who first became linked with said follow-up back in 2012, before fuelling speculation three years later when the Cleveland Cavaliers star inked a movie and TV deal with Warner Bros. Pictures. Now, on the heels of a role in last year’s rom-com Trainwreck, LeBron James has officially been confirmed to headline Space Jam 2.

Plot details are practically non-existent at such an early stage, but it’s a safe bet that Warner Bros. and now Justin Lin will circle back to the creative well of Looney Tunes mascots – Daffy Duck, Lola Bunny »

Which Batman villains should Affleck bring back – and who should play them?

2 May 2016 9:54 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A new report suggests Ben Affleck wants the full ‘rogues gallery’ of Batman foes for his confirmed standalone film, which he’ll be the star of and direct

Batman’s “rogues gallery” of villains is the classic comic book coterie of evil. So why have so many of them been absent from the big screen for so long? Penguin has been missing since Danny DeVito’s freaky turn in 1992’s Batman Returns, while The Riddler hasn’t been wheeled out since Jim Carrey’s nerve-shatteringly ebullient performance in 1995’s Batman Forever. Poison Ivy? Well, we haven’t seen her since Uma Thurman’s uber-camp 1997 portrayal in Joel Schumacher’s ill-fated Batman & Robin.

2016 Tribeca Film Festival: NY Shorts Program

25 April 2016 5:17 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Of the many films the Tribeca Film Festival shows, one of the biggest categories that often gets overlooked is the shorts category. Shorts are most definitely much harder to make considering their limited screen time and the need to fit a whole story within that time. Taking that into consideration, the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival decided to split up its shorts submissions into various categories, including New York Now shorts program.

This array of shorts all contained some form of New York City within them, whether through history, character, story, or anything in between. There were seven shorts in the program, and they are as follows:

Mildred & The Dying Parlor: Directed by Alex Gayner, starring Zosia Mamet, Jane Krakowski, Steve Buscemi, and Evan Jonigkeit; about a family who runs a dying parlor out of their home until an unexpected visitor shows up. Wannabe: Directed by Matthew Manson, starring Malcolm-Jamal Warner, »

Here at the Tribeca Film Festival, Danny DeVito has delivered the short film Curmudgeons, a cinematic ode to his buddy, late New York actor David Margulies, who died in January after battling a long illness. DeVito and Margulies have known each other since 1968 when they performed in off-Broadway plays together at the Sheridan Square Playhouse, and the late actor — who many remember from Ghostbusters and as Tony Soprano’s attorney Neil Mink — also performed with Danny’s… »

Meet the films sequels that might not be dead, but are certainly stuck in some kind of limbo...

Every now and then, a sequel that appears to have been in the cooker for a while – Zoolander 2, Dumb And Dumber To, Anchorman 2 – finally escapes into the wild. But the journey to the screen can be a very lengthy one, and this little lot are still trying to find their way to your local multiplex…

Dick Tracy 2

Disney gambled hard on bringing Dick Tracy to the screen in the summer of 1990, backing the vision of director and star Warren Beatty, and hoping to ape the success that Warner Bros had enjoyed the summer before with Batman. Yet whilst Dick Tracy hit, it didn’t hit too hard. The studio adjusted its-then blockbuster strategy accordingly, and it wouldn’t really be until it got to the likes of »

Samantha Bee tries to talk to real, live Bernie supporters

19 April 2016 7:49 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You may remember about a month ago, when Full Frontal's Samantha Bee spoke to a small group of Donald Trump supporters to find out what they were really like, figuring they couldn't possibly be as bad as they seemed, or as the candidate hopeful they supported. Last night, she did the same thing with Bernie Sanders fans, saying it's "easy for dried-up old crones like" her to dismiss idealistic young Bernie die-hards. So she was going to actually talk to some of them. She gathered an "impossibly diverse" panel of nine people, including one "Bernie bro" who was just an older gentleman with his cap on backwards. They all seemed like very nice people with maybe a little too much hope and optimism and definitely too many Bernie tattoos (one tattoo is too many Bernie tattoos). That said, the woman who sported the Bernie tattoo had a great response »

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Renewed for Two More Seasons

1 April 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been renewed for seasons 13 and 14 on Fxx, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. With Season 14, Sunny will tie The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet as the longest-running live-action comedy series in television history. The previously-announced season 12 will premiere in early 2017. Here's what FX's Nick Grad had to say in a statement.

"If anyone doubts the power of a camcorder and a dream, just look at It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which was a Diy backyard pilot when Rob (McElhenney), Charlie (Day) and Glenn (Howerton) brought it to FX and will go down in TV history as one of the most loved and enduring comedies. Few shows make it this far or have such devoted fans, and we owe it all to the creative vision and great humor of the creators and »

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia renewed for seasons 13 and 14

The Gang may live on forever. FX will have It's Always Sunny In Philadephia for at least another three seasons...

“The Gang Gets Renewed for Two More Years.” 

Long-running FX sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will be in the history books. The cable network announced the renewal of two additional seasons (13 and 14) after season 12, we’re safe to assume, airs early next year.

That places the series in rarified air, tying The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet as the longest-running live-action sitcom in television history. The Gang doesn’t tie, so we fully expect Charlie to squash that beef and stalk the waitress to infinity.

Say what you want about this savage Gang, but they’re a resilient bunch. Shaking off the move to FX’s lessor-known sister network Fxx, the ratings remain strong (it’s No. 1 on cable for adults 18-49), and the quality, though at times uneven, »

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Nabs Two-Season Renewal At FX

1 April 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the evergreen comedy that shows no sign of slowing up, has today earned a two-season renewal at FX.

Having just wrapped up season 11 earlier this year, the network’s order extends Always Sunny’s run to season 14 – season 12, meanwhile, is due in 2017 – bringing Rob McElhenney’s series neck and neck with The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, which holds the record for the most seasons by a live-action comedy.

Buoyed by impressive viewing figures – viewer count for Always Sunny season 11 was up 13 precent on its predecessor – FX spoke about the show’s future, which continues to look bright even so far into its run.
