16 Moments That Prove Mrs. Doubtfire Will Always Be Hilarious

21 July 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There are so many things to love about Mrs. Doubtfire, the 1993 classic that introduced the late Robin Williams to a whole new generation of fans. It doesn't matter if you're 5 or 50; Williams is hilarious as Daniel, a down-on-his-luck dad hoping to hold onto partial custody of his kids when his wife (Sally Field) decides to separate. In a stroke of genius, he enlists his brother to construct custom prosthetics to make him look like a nanny, and Mrs. Doubtfire is born. The family has grown up a lot since the movie was released, but we'll always remember them as the Hillards. In honor of it being Williams's birthday today, take a look at the timeless moments we'll never forget. »

Burt Reynolds Looks Back on Making Iconic Smokey and the Bandit in Exclusive Sneak Peek

19 July 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Similar to how Smokey and the Bandit is held together by the friendship between Bandit and Snowman, the film's production was made possible by the bond between star Burt Reynolds and director Hal Needham. In an exclusive clip from The Bandit, the upcoming documentary about the making of the iconic 1977 film, Reynolds talks about his close relationship with Needham, who died in 2013. "If he'd been a woman, we'd have had a great marriage," Reynolds, now 80, says of his best friend, roommate and stunt double. Other interviewees speak about Needham's dedication to the low-budget film, which served as his directorial debut »

Halfway Mark: Best Actressing of 2016 (Thus Far)

8 July 2016 7:29 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Previously at the Halfway Mark: 

• 5 Favorite Pictures and imaginary Oscar scenario

• 11 Costume Design Honors from couture to the puritanical with swimwear on the side

• Cinematography & Production Design Sunset Song, etc...

• Heroes & Villains from Deadpool to Shere Khan

• 23 Male Actor Honorees in 5 categories

Cue fireworks. It's the grand finale. Our brief Halfway Mark Review honoring the best of the 50+ movies we've seen that have been released between January 1st and June 30th, is now at its end. But don't worry. The listing impulse fully never goes away and there's more excitement soon as we'll start updating the Oscar charts tomorrow. Naturally we're ending with Best Actress if five categories -- the same categories we previously did for the men.

If I had a ballot (hey, I do... albeit not an AMPAS ballot) here's what I'd honor from the year thus far -- January through June releases only though I've seen some July & August titles. »

Tom Holland Shares ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Selfie While Web-Slinging on Set (Photo)

8 July 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

We already got a good look at Tom Holland as Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War,” but now we have a snapshot of the webhead from his own movie. Holland Instagrammed an in-costume selfie from way up high on the set of “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” exactly one year to the day before its July 7, 2017 release. And it looks like a swinging stunt is about to go down, hence the crash pads among the crew. Directed by John Watts, “Homecoming” also stars Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa TomeiDonald GloverLogan Marshall-Green, Martin StarrHannibal BuressAbraham Attah, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, »

Clint Eastwood's 'Sully' Biopic Lands Its First Trailer

30 June 2016 4:33 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Daniel here. When news broke that Tom Hanks was cast as airline captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger – the real-life angel with jet wings who, in 2009, famously piloted an A320 to an emergency water landing on the Hudson River, saving the lives of all crew and passengers in the process – approximately no one was surprised. If you ever need to cast an Irl hero for the big screen, Hanks’ evergreen likeability automatically makes him the safest choice; personally, as much as I really, really, really, really, really, really like Hanks, I’d have loved to see William Hurt take the controls. Regardless, we now have our first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s Sully and down to its Oscar-nominated, underutilized actress propped as a wallpaper wife, it’s about what you've come to expect from a ripped-from-the-headlines biopic these days. To some, it seems the surest route to stoic is stale.

Judy Garland's Daughter Lorna Luft Sings 'Over the Rainbow' for the First Time in Tribute to Orlando, Stonewall and Her Late Mother

24 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lorna Luft, daughter of the late Judy Garland, gave an emotional performance of her mother's signature tune "Over the Rainbow" at New York City's Feinstein's/54 Below on Wednesday night - the first she's ever given of the song, she says. "I've never sung this song," Luft told concertgoers before the performance. "Not because it was too hard for me emotionally, but because I always felt you can't improve on perfect. But I thought to myself, if I'm ever going to sing this, now is the time." The emotional moment came 47 years to the day after Garland died at the age »

22 Deserving Oscar Contenders From the First Half of 2016

24 June 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Year after year film releases from January through June get the short end of the stick during the Oscar season, when latter-year entries — many of them fresh off exposure-boosting festival circuits — drown everything out.

There are exceptions, of course, but mostly, without the help of critical kudos and other precursor awards that deign to have long memories, quality work is frequently left in the also-ran pile. In an effort to keep the spotlight trained on deserving contenders, here is a long list of players we’d like to see remembered by the Academy later this year.

[Note: This list only includes films theatrically released to the public through the year’s midway point. Not all festival entries are eligible.]

Best Picture: “Weiner

Rather than save it for the documentary feature category, why not just call one of the year’s best movies exactly what it is? This Sundance hit is somehow the perfect movie for now: Flawed heroes, media obsession with titillation yielding obfuscation of substance — it’s brilliantly in tune with the zeitgeist. »

The One Thing Spider-Man: Homecoming Needs To Do To Be Great

22 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan on Spider-Man: Homecoming and what it needs to do to be great…

In Spider-Man 2 Peter Parker’s (Tobey Maguire) childhood home is facing foreclosure but Aunt May (Rosemary Harris) insists on giving him her last 20 bucks, only for his landlord to snatch it a way. Peter is broke and Spider-Man keeps him that way. He is relatable and it makes Spider-Man 2 one of the best superhero movies ever. When Kevin Feige agreed with this sentiment in 2015, he namechecked John Hughes as an influence on Marvel’s take on ol’ webhead. So, as Spider-Man: Homecoming stocks its cast with Donald Glover, Logan Marshall-Green and Martin Starr, director Jon Watts once again mentioned Hughes as an inspiration for the film.

The plan to make Homecoming a superhero teen movie is interesting and with hits like The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Pretty in Pink, it »

Jane Fonda to Celebrate ‘Laramie Project’ With Tectonic at 25!

15 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

This year marks a quarter century of groundbreaking theater at Moisés Kaufman’s Tectonic Theater Project, and the celebrated theater-maker and friends are ringing it in with style at Tectonic at 25! The 25th anniversary benefit performance will hit Nyu Skirball in New York City on Nov. 7 with host Jane Fonda. The event, which Kaufman will direct, is scheduled to include reimagined excerpts from award-winning Tectonic Theater classics like “The Laramie Project,” “Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde,” “The Tallest Tree in the Forest,” “33 Variations,” “I Am My Own Wife,” and “Carmen: An Afro-Cuban Jazz Musical.” The roster of stage and film talent to take the spotlight and perform that evening has yet to be announced, but given Kaufman’s reputation and Fonda’s attachment, we expect theater legends and legends-in-the-making to participate. With a host committee that includes Sir Ian McKellen, Sally Field, David Hyde Pierce, Darren Criss, Jonathan Groff, and more, the Tectonic Theater Project has established itself as a leading company for politically and socially conscious theater. Tickets for the Nov. 7 event are »

Beauty vs Beast: Spaceman Blues

13 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here - it's time for another "Beauty vs Beast" y'all! Today's we're talking Pixar because of two reasons -- first off their sequel Finding Dory is out this weekend, prepped to splash magic across the summer box office. And next off it's the 63rd birthday of Tim Allen today, whose greatest role (give or take a Galaxy Quest) came divorced from his physical being, his essence siphoned into Pixar's patented pixels and then tossed into the greatest toy box there ever was with 1995's Toy Story. Can you imagine a world with Buzz Lightyear or Woody the well-meaning cotton-stuffed cowpoke? I thought not. But try to remember that once upon a time they were more at each other's throats than anything else, and then take your sides...

Previously Last week we stormed onto the primary-color-coated set of the soap opera satire Soapdish, maneuvered ourselves between the divas and dimbulbs, and asked you to choose between the Queen Bee and the Crazy Bitch - well with 60% of the vote once again Celeste Talbert (Sally Field) has made her way to that podium. Said Sawyer:

"'What am I, 70, David? Why don't you just put me in a walker? Buy a goddamn walker and put me in it!' #celesteforever"

Hello, My Name is Doris

6 June 2016 8:29 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Sally Field bounces back in this story of mismatched love - or a romantic delusion... that is 3/4 charm and 1/4 wishful thinking. The May-October romance isn't an outright farce like Harold and Maude, so a few of the comic situations are somewhat wince-inducing. Or am I just feeling my own 'October' discomfort? Field fans should love it anyway. Hello, My Name Is Doris Blu-ray Sony Pictures Home Entertainment 2015 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 90 min. / Street Date June 14, 2016 / 26.99 Starring Sally Field, Max Greenfield, Tyne Daly, Beth Behrs, Elisabeth Reaser, Peter Gallagher, Stephen Root, Wendi McLendon-Covey. Cinematography Brian Burgoyne Film Editor Robert Nassau Original Music Brian H. Kim Written by Laura Terruso, Michael Showalter, from her short film Doris & the Intern Produced by Daniel Crown, Kevin Mann, Riva Marker, Jordana Mollick, Daniela Taplin Lundberg Directed by Michael Showalter

Beauty vs Beast: The Sun Also Sets

6 June 2016 11:39 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here with this week's edition of "Beauty vs Beast" - I think I must have had fever of the brain (to the lay-person that's called Kopfgeschlagen) last week because somehow I didn't take advantage of the 25th anniversary of one of my most favorite comedies of ever, Michael Hoffmann's Soapdish, the fizzy slapstick tale of backstage shenanigans at a daytime soap opera full of narcissistic psychopaths. Somewhere in the late 90s I wore out my VHS I watched this movie so many times - Soapdish is one you could stand me in front of a crowd, tell me to go, and I could perform the entire thing from start to finish, from crawdad butts to Tawny the Tweety-Bird Couturie.

The cast is to a tee in top form - even semi-cameos like Carrie Fisher's classic bitch Betsy Faye Sharon leave impressions so sharp I can »

Hillary Clinton Basks in Hollywood Star Power During La Campaign Stop

Hillary Clinton got a little help from her superstar Hollywood friends on Friday, just days before California’s primary on Tuesday. Actresses Elizabeth Banks, Debra Messing, Sally Field, Mary Steenburgen and Sophia Bush all showed up for a Women for Hillary event at West Los Angeles College, where they heaped praise on the former secretary of state. Former Lindsay Lohan gal-pal Samantha Ronson served as DJ. Banks delivered one of the best lines of the event, telling the crowd that Donald Trump “ran a university. It no longer exists.
