Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Richard Dreyfuss Comes This Close to Saving Jason Priestley's Cas & Dylan

28 April 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Leading man Richard Dreyfuss is so irrepressibly charming that he almost saves Jason Priestley's dismal buddy comedy Cas & Dylan from its awkward humor and trite sentimentality. As Cas Pepper, a depressed physician who reluctantly goes on a road trip with free-spirited aspiring writer Dylan (Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany) after he receives a mysterious medical prognosis, Dreyfuss makes the most out of an essentially mawkish character. During their long drive across Canada, Cas and Dylan seem intended to teach other life lessons. But more often than not, he only sighs and complains paternally as she puts down his love of bluegrass music or shoots her mouth off with ostensibly endearing non sequiturs like "Last time I stayed in a [motel] like this, I made »

Why 1977 was the best year in movie history

28 April 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. 1977 is the greatest year in film history. I'm positive. Why? It's the year that made you believe giant blockbusters could bring you state-of-the-art science fiction, modern (and enduring) takes on romance, compelling heroes, and a shrewd understanding of real people. It's the year that put us in touch with our most superheroic and most sentimental qualities, and that range alone is worth honoring. '77 is the year that gave us "Star Wars." I could go on about why that's a great movie, or we could just understand that every sci-fi blockbuster since "Star Wars" has had to deal with belittling comparisons to the greatness of "Star Wars." Sure, there've been other blockbusters with grandeur and special effects galore, but did they have C3PO's charisma? »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

25. An Innocent Man

Disney, through its Touchstone banner, had high hopes for this thriller, »

Richard Dreyfuss suing Disney over What About Bob? profits

10 April 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Richard Dreyfuss is taking legal action against Disney over his share of profits from 1989 movie What About Bob?.

1991's Turner & Hooch is also part of the action, with Christine Wagner, the widow of that movie's producer, arguing that she is entitled to 50% of its profits.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair filed a complaint at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday (April 9), claiming that Disney refused to hire their chosen auditor.

They want an investigation into how net profits have been calculated by Disney's auditors.

Their complaint reads: "There are very few firms that regularly audit the Studios. The so-called 'Big Four' accounting firms have no reputation for or competence in this regard.

"These few firms that do have the relevant expertise include: Robinson Inc; Green Hasson Janks; Hacker Douglas & Company; and Nigro Karlin Segal Feldstein & Bolno."

Dreyfuss and Wagner's auditor of choice was David J Robinson's company Robinson Inc, »

Richard Dreyfuss Sues Disney Over ‘What About Bob?’ Profits

9 April 2015 7:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Dreyfuss has filed suit against The Walt Disney Co., in a case that takes aim at studio accounting practices by claiming that Disney is refusing to allow a firm that specializes in profit participation audits to examine the company’s returns from “What About Bob?

Dreyfuss is joined in the lawsuit by Christine Turner, who is seeking an audit of the returns from “Turner and Hooch,” which was produced by her late husband, Raymond Wagner.

Dreyfuss and Turner each claim that Disney is refusing to allow their chosen auditor, Robinson and Co., to conduct the examination, on the grounds that it must be done by a “national firm of reputable CPAs, the selection of which is subject to [Disney’s] approval not to be unreasonably withheld.”

The plaintiffs contend that the nationally recognized big four accounting firms don’t have experience in studio audits, while a handful of smaller and more specialized firms like Robinson do. »

'Your Family or Mine' star Kyle Howard on how his new TBS comedy isn't 'My Boys'

7 April 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sometimes it seems like I spend a disproportionate amount of my life talking with actors about the differences between single-cam and multi-cam comedies. Here's another of those interviews. TBS and Sony Pictures TV's "Your Family or Mine" returns star Kyle Howard to the network and studio behind "My Boys," which had a well-regarded four-season run (but somehow aired only 49 episodes, which surprised me a little) ending in 2010. In November, I sat down with Howard on the "Your Family or Mine" set to talk about whether he feels any continuity between his earlier sitcom and the new one -- this was before a new creative administration took over at TBS -- and how the difference between single-cam and multi-cam comedies impact him. Howard agreed with co-star Kat Foster that the two leads have a very good chemistry and that that kind of chemistry is both rare and lucky. He also explains »

'Your Family or Mine' star Kat Foster on the Myth of Romantic Chemistry

7 April 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kyle Howard has made his "Your Family or Mine" co-star Kat Foster believe in love, or at least believe in on-screen chemistry. "I never totally bought the idea of 'chemistry,' like 'romantic chemistry.'" Foster told me. "I always thought like,'"Oh well if you’re a nice and sweet person with some kind of charm you can probably kind of have chemistry with anyone.' And I thought that for a while and then as we’ve shot the show I’ve started to buy chemistry because I truly feel that Kyle and I really have a genuine kind of simpatico that is actually very, very rare to find with someone you’re playing opposite." All together now: "Awww..." The conceit of "Your Family or Mine" is that Foster's Kelli and Howard's Oliver are married. Each episode alternates between the couple's interactions with her family -- »

Interview: 'Your Family or Mine' star Richard Dreyfuss on TV's draw - 'Money'

3 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Richard Dreyfuss doesn't need to play any reindeer games. An Oscar winner and one of the world's biggest movie stars for two decades, Dreyfuss has only periodically popped up on the big or small screens in recent years because he's been concentrating his efforts on overhauling the way American children are taught civics and serving as Senior Associate Member of St. Anthony's College in Oxford. While his recent credits have been sparse, I've talked to Dreyfuss several times in the past few years and the key is always to find what he wants to discuss, even if it isn't necessarily the project he's promoting.  So with the 2012 A&E adaptation of "Coma," it certainly wasn't "Coma," but it could have been the shift in interactions between actors and directors over the years and whether or not TV is more actor-friendly. With this winter's Sundance debut of "Zipper," it was the political backdrop to the thriller. »

Remembering Sidney Lumet

1 April 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

April 9th will mark the four year anniversary of director Sidney Lumet's passing, at age 86. Lumet was the first director I interviewed whose one-sheet posters hung on my wall as a kid. He was an idol, an icon, and an inspiration. I wasn't yet 30 in April 1997, when I met him at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills for our interview at the press junket for "Night Falls On Manhattan," one of his solid, authentic urban dramas that blended crime, politics and personal revelations that became his signature.

Lumet immediately put any butterflies I had at ease. Diminutive, but with the infectious energy of a teenager, his was a disarming presence. He paid me a compliment on my sportcoat, saying that I looked a bit like the young Mickey Rourke (which I still don't see, but what the hell), then went on to regale me for an hour with »

The Weekend Read: Autism in entertainment from 'Rain Man' to 'Community'

28 March 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Looking at the film, »
