Richard Dreyfuss Says Trump Lacks Guts and Class (Video)

26 February 2017 6:42 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_1oqphz1e"]] Richard Dreyfuss is scoffing at President Trump's decision to skip the White House Correspondents' Dinner, saying his decision is cowardly and predictable.  We got the "Jaws" actor out at Dan Tana's restaurant in WeHo Saturday and his point of view is strong and clear ... it take guts to stand in front of a group of journalists and comedians who poke fun at you, and he doesn't think Trump has what it takes.

New Piranha Movie Happening, Concept Art Unveiled

24 February 2017 4:04 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are no sea creatures that can match the terror that was permanently placed in moviegoers when Steven Spielberg made Jaws, but if anything were to come close, it might be Piranha. No, the Piranha franchise, which actually started as a spoof of Spielberg's classic shark thriller, has never quite been the critical darling and beloved blockbuster that the original Jaws was, but the series has persisted over the years and has provided some solid, if campy, sea creature horror. Now it looks like after a few years away, the Piranha franchise is ready to make a return to the big screen next year.

Per Bloody Disgusting, Producer Hisako Tsukaba is currently working on a new movie in the Piranha series that is set to be released at some point in 2018. The movie is titled Summer of the Piranha and is reportedly already in the pre-production stages in Japan. »

That Time Kamala Harris Called New Homeland Security Secretary at Home to Protest Muslim Ban

23 February 2017 7:24 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

California’s new U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris was so appalled by the bungled rollout of the Trump administration’s ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries last month that she called Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and confronted him about it. “I called him up at home ’cause I got the number,” Harris told the audience at a Creative Artist Agency-sponsored summit of political leaders on Thursday. The call didn’t go as well as she had hoped. “I was really unsatisfied with the conversation,” she told the crowd, which included actors Richard Dreyfuss and Joshua Jackson. Also Read: »

The World’s Busiest Oscar Has Traveled Over 3 Million Miles

22 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By: Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

Rain Man, the dramedy about a remarkable autistic man (Dustin Hoffman), was the big winner at the Oscars 28 years ago, claiming best picture, director (Barry Levinson), actor (Hoffman) and adapted screenplay, for which two statuettes were awarded: one to Barry Morrow, who wrote a script inspired by his friend Kim Peek, a “megasavant” he met after winning an Emmy for writing the 1981 TV movie Bill, another classic about a person with special needs; and the other to Ron Bass, who polished Morrow’s version.

Most Oscar winners proudly display their statuette where many will see it; Morrow has taken that to the extreme. He rarely has seen his in the years since Amy Irving and Richard Dreyfuss handed it to him — but it’s probably been more widely seen and held by others than any Oscar in history.

70s Rewind: Inserts, Place an X Over Its Heart

10 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Richard Dreyfuss once starred in an X-rated film. Let that sink in for a moment. Placing that into proper context reminds us that the 1970s were a very different time. The MPAA film rating system became effective in the U.S. on November 1, 1968. Six months later, John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy received an X-rating, and less than a year later, became the first (and only) X-rated film to win the Academy Award as Best Picture. Russ Meyer's Beyond the Valley of the Dolls earned the X-rating for its release in June 1970, Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange received it upon its original release in the U.S. in February 1972, Ralph Bakshi's animated Fritz the Cat was tagged with an X in April 1972, and Bernardo...

Newswire: How about a gender-swapped remake of What About Bob?

25 January 2017 12:55 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to Variety, NBC has given a pilot order to a gender-swapped adaptation of What About Bob?, Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss’ 1991 comedy about a therapist who tries to escape his annoying and intrusive patient. Naturally, the NBC version will be called What About Barb?, because that’s the closest female-equivalent name that the network could use without scaring people off by making it too different. What About Barb? will be a single-camera comedy from Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, who have worked on a wide range of TV projects including New Girl, The Odd Couple, and the mercifully short-lived 1600 Penn.

Variety doesn’t have any other concrete details about the project, but it will presumably follow the plot of the movie in a more extensive and drawn-out fashion.

What Is the Best American Remake of a Foreign-Language Film? — Critics Survey

17 January 2017 12:27 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Sleepless,” a new Jamie Foxx vehicle that’s been adapted from Frederic Jardin’s “Sleepless Night,” what is the best American remake of a foreign-language film?

Joshua Rothkopf (@joshrothkopf), Time Out New York

Long before I knew and appreciated Jean Renoir, I was in love with “Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” a 1986 comedy based on “Boudu Saved from Drowning” that peppered the flow with some truly eye-opening ideas for Hollywood: class warfare, unequal police treatment, a neurotic dog with its own therapist. The movie holds up beautifully — it’s one of Nick Nolte’s quietest performances, and one »

How much Madoff are you ready to handle on TV? The man who became of the face of Wall Street’s worst tendencies after his empire came crumbling down when it was revealed to be built on a Ponzi scheme is now headed to your small screen. Last year, ABC dropped a mini-series take simply called “Madoff” starring Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner, but if you’re looking for a more concise version of the story with a slightly starrier cast, you can turn to HBO.

13 phobias on film for Friday the 13th13 phobias on film for Friday the 13thSasha James1/13/2017 9:05:00 Am

Did you know that “paraskavedekatriaphobia” is the fear of Friday the 13th?

Instead of the usual breakdown of the Friday the 13th movies that you’re probably used to, we decided to celebrate this Friday the 13th with a write-up of phobias and the movies that we most associate with them. Yes, we could have picked Arachnophobia for arachnophobia, but we tried to be at least a little bit more creative.

Check out our list below, and let us know if you can think up better movies to represent the below phobias.

 

Panphobia (Fear of Everything) – What About Bob?

You can’t talk about phobias without talking about Bob Wiley. In Frank Oz’s 90s classic What About Bob?, Bill Murray plays the multiphobic patient of Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss). He’s afraid of everything: buses, »
