What Sally Field Thinks Of The Aunt May Spinoff Movie

17 March 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Let.s think back to a hectic period during the Spider-Man film franchise: November 2014. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 had been pushed back to 2018, Sinister Six had been rescheduled for November 2016 and Sony didn.t know what to do with their now-defunct Spider-Man cinematic universe. Then things got really crazy. A rumor surfaced stating that Sony was working on a movie about Peter Parker.s Aunt May. Fans immediately called this plan ridiculous, and as it turns out, the actor who recently portrayed the character agrees wholeheartedly. At SXSW this weekend, The Huffington Post asked actress Sally Field, who played Aunt May in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, what she thought about this proposed spinoff, and like the fans, she appropriately scoffed at the idea. Said the Academy Award-winning actress, Aunt May spinoff? And make her the lead? What would you do with her? She has no special powers whatsoever. »

Sally Field Weighs In On Aunt May Spin-off And Marvel's Spider-man Reboot

17 March 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While attending the South by Southwest Film Festival this week, Sally Field was asked about Sony and Marvel rebooting the Amazing Spider-Man movies, in which she played Aunt May. The two-time Oscar-winner had implied that she'll miss Andrew Garfield the most, telling  E! Online that he was "just perfect" as Peter Parker, and that he's the "most perfect fellow to work with, so I will miss him, but I'll find him." With the Web-slinger set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Field then reflected on the experience: "It was fun because it was just a great group." Like Garfield, Sally Field playing Aunt May was one of the best aspects of Marc Webb's now-abandoned franchise. However, not too long before the new plans for Spider-Man were announced, Sony reportedly considered an Amazing Spider-Man spin-off focusing on Sally Field's character. "Aunt May spin-off? And make her the lead? What would you do with her? »

SXSW Film: 5 Best Moments From the Start of the Fest

17 March 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s SXSW Film looked as star-studded as the Oscars (or at least the MTV Movie Awards), with one of the festival’s most commercial movie lineups ever. Capping the busy weekend was a rare triple feature: the premieres of “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and “Furious 7.” And a batch of deals closed in Austin for smaller movies — including the Alex Gibney doc “Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine” (which went to Magnolia Pictures), the relationship drama “6 Years” (which landed at Netflix) and the Rupert Grint film “Moonwalkers“ (Alchemy). Here are five of the top moments from the first few days.

1) Amy Schumer Is the Next Big Thing

Amy Schumer proved that she really is a movie star in her first movie, Judd Apatow comedy “Trainwreck.” She plays a journalist (also named Amy) who drifts through a series of unfortunate one-night stands until she meets a charming doctor (Bill Hader »

Amazing Spider-Man's Sally Field Will Miss Andrew Garfield When Spidey Gets Another Reboot

17 March 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It feels like it was just yesterday that Andrew Garfield was slinging his firsts webs in The Amazing Spider-Man. But as we now know, the Spidey franchise is going to be rebooted again. Sony has made no announcements about who will play Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego. Sally Field played Peter's Aunt May in the two Garfield flicks. Calling Garfield "just perfect," the acting icon told me at the South by Southwest premiere of her indie drama Hello, My Name Is Doris, that he is the "most perfect fellow to work with, so I will miss him, but I'll find him." The movies also co-starred Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as her police captain dad and Martin Sheen as Peter's »

Tracers: Taylor Lautner Runs, Bikes, and Jumps

16 March 2015 10:25 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

I'm one of those "glass half-full "critics when it comes to Taylor Lautner. Film after film I hope he'll pull a Sally Field, who went from The Flying Nun and Gidget to Sybil and Norma Rae. Would Abduction or Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 reveal the young man's inner Laurence Olivier? No, sadly. The lumbering hunk remains just a lumbering hunk in those two. Prize-winning pecs and abs plus a cute smile were what the glamor boy's fans had to settle for.

"Well, maybe Tracers will be his Wuthering Heights," I was murmuring as I scooted onto the subway last night, heading for a midtown screening room. I should have known better. I should have checked out the director's CV before hoping for the best.

The Barcelona-born Daniel Benmayor had previously helmed a Schweppes commercial with Hugh Laurie and two deodorant ads, which would make you think he could avoid creating malodorous art. »

"You just go in and do it," Greenfield told me at the South by Southwest premiere of Hello, My Name Is Doris, his and Field's new movie. "You just go right in."

SXSW: Sally Field on Going Raunchy for 'Hello, My Name is Doris' and Why She's Never Felt Like a Great Success

16 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Sally Field Delivers a Winning Performance in 'Hello, My Name is Doris' In the two days since "Hello, My Dame is Doris," the new comedy from "Wet Hot American Summer" co-writer Michael Showalter, premiered at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, folks in Austin have been talking non-stop about Sally Field's standout performance in the film. The project marks a rare opportunity to see the two-time Oscar winner give her all to a lead role. She recently anchored ABC's critically acclaimed series "Brother & Sisters" for five years on the small screen, but on the big screen, Field has been relegated to supporting roles over the past decade, stealing scenes as Aunt May in "The Amazing Spider-Man" reboot and its sequel, and earning an Oscar nomination for her bravura performance as Mary Todd Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln."

Pete Wentz on Kanye West's Fashion Designs: 'He Definitely Deserves Respect'

16 March 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If there's one word to describe Kanye West, it's "polarizing."

The rapper has caught flack and high praise for everything from his music, to his outspoken nature, to even his ambitions in the fashion world. West debuted his new sneaker line with Adidas at New York Fashion Week last month, with a star-studded audience looking on. Among the fashionable celebs checking out his designs was Fall Out Boy lyricist Pete Wentz.

"He definitely deserves respect," Wentz says of West in an interview with ETonline.

SXSW: Max Greenfield on Making Out with Sally Field and Getting ‘Unhealthily Addicted’ to Crossfit

15 March 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Michael Showalter's new film Hello, My Name is Doris, which bowed Saturday night at SXSW, Max Greenfield plays John Fremont, a charming artistic director and the love interest of Doris, an accountant at the same company played by Sally Field. What ensues is a semi-awkward and endearing pursuit between an older woman and a younger man. Vulture sat down with Greenfield in the historic Driskill Hotel in Austin before the premiere and discussed everything from making out with an acting legend, getting "unhealthily addicted" to CrossFit, and how there’s a little bit of Schmidt in everything he does.How do you feel about making out with Sally Field?It was great. She might be the best kisser. It really felt right for the film and the characters and not gratuitous, so when we would [make out] it was rewarding. It felt like a release, and there is that element »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Hello, My Name Is Doris’

14 March 2015 11:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite some bumpy tonal shifts and inconsistencies of characterization, “Hello, My Name Is Doris” impresses as a humanely amusing and occasionally poignant dramedy about a spinsterish office drone who develops a romantic fixation on a much younger co-worker. The plot could have been played as a flat-out broad comedy or an anxiety-inducing psychological drama, and there are times when it feels like helmer Michael Showalter is striving for a mash-up of both. But Sally Field keeps the movie on an even keel, for the most part, with an adroit and disciplined lead performance that generates both laughter and sympathy, with relatively few yanks on the heartstrings. Audiences of a certain age might respond warmly, provided they are stoked by savvy marketing and favorable word of mouth.

Anyone who has ever toiled in a honeycomb of office cubicles will recognize Doris Miller (Field), the sort of hard-working but good-natured sixtysomething whose »

Sally Field Gets Cheers for Rare Leading Role in SXSW Romance

14 March 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sally Field took SXSW by storm on Saturday afternoon with “Hello, My Name is Doris,” a dramedy from director Michael Showalter that will certainly be one of the big discoveries out of this year’s festival.

Field plays the titular character, a 60-something hoarder from Staten Island who develops a crush, which quickly escalates into an obsession, on her much younger co-worker (Max Greenfield). The movie is based on a 2011 short by the script’s co-writer Laura Terruso, called “Doris & the Intern.”

“Certainly I’ve never read anything as unique as this character,” Field said at an audience Q&A session following the screening, where she received a standing ovation. “You get to a certain point, after being in the business for a long time, you read the same thing over and over again. There’s nothing that blows your skirt off. This blew my skirt way up.”

SXSW Review: Sally Field Delivers a Winning Performance in 'Hello, My Name is Doris'

14 March 2015 5:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If the younger Edith Beale in "Grey Gardens" — the insular middle-aged socialite still living at home with her mother — ventured beyond her insular world and pursued romance with a younger man, she might resemble the adorable, melancholic figure played by Sally Field in "Hello, My Name is Doris." Directed by "Wet Hot American Summer" co-writer Michael Showalter, who wrote the script with Laura Terruso, the movie follows the titular 60-year-old Staten Island residen in the wake of her mother's dead as she explores an unlikely courtship with much younger co-worker John (Max Greenfield, "New Girl"). The ensuing bittersweet tale touches on the themes of loneliness and aging that might seem at home in Alexander Payne's universe, and while Showalter's broad comedy approach never burrows that deep, Field's performance is a different story.

Exclusive: Fall Out Boy Talks Career Milestones, 'Bad Styles' and How They Stay True to Their Fans

It's been just over a decade since Fall Out Boy won their first award.

"For the record, there's no way we would have thought we would have ever won," a baby-faced Pete Wentz said back in 2004, as the band accepted the Streaming Award from the mtvU Woodies.

Next week, the band will travel to the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, to perform a career-spanning set at the 2015 Woodie Awards and accept the honor of being the first act to ever be inducted into the newly-minted Hall of Wood.

"It's pretty wild," Patrick Stump tells ETonline. "I feel like we've grown up with the Woodies in a lot of ways, too."

SXSW: 13 Buzziest Movies at This Year’s Film Festival

13 March 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SXSW kicks off on Friday, with thousands arriving in Austin, Texas, to attend the film festival component. While there won’t be as many distribution deals as at Sundance or Toronto, SXSW can offer a strong launching pad for upcoming releases — last year, both “Neighbors” and “Chef” attracted lots of attention in Texas to  before they went on to becomes box office hits. And, of course, the festival is also as a showcase for smaller films seeking buyers, such as the Katie Holmes drama “Mania Days.” Here are the 13 buzziest titles playing at SXSW this year.

1. “Trainwreck

The hottest ticket at SXSW will be for Judd Apatow’s new comedy starring Amy Schumer as a thirtysomething journalist who, after a series of one-night stands, sparks a connection with a subject she’s profiling (Bill Hader).

SXSW Preview: Film Fest Keeps Its Irreverent Attitude With Biggest Lineup Ever

12 March 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With 145 total films on tap, including 100 world premieres drawn from a record 2,385 feature-length submissions, SXSW Film is offering a massive slate in 2015, with selections ranging from big studio comedies to microbudget indies, music docs, political docs and episodic TV.

It’s almost too bad that wasn’t the plan.

“We were not intending to increase the number of films,” says SXSW Film head Janet Pierson. “We were literally trying to do the opposite.”

Arriving midway between SXSW Interactive and SXSW Music, the Austin, Texas, film fest has always been both enriched and complicated by the frenzied atmosphere surrounding it.

The fest has served as a launchpad for a plethora of films ranging from “Short Term 12” to “Chef,” “Tiny Furniture,” “Bridesmaids,” “Monsters” and Oscar-winning docu “Undefeated.” But with nearly infinite distractions around town — including the countless peripheral events unaffiliated with SXSW proper — simply making sure that the films on display »
