Tommy Lee Jones Said Really Mean Things To Jim Carrey During Batman Forever

29 October 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sometimes a movie duo works fabulously together onscreen, but the two utterly loathe each other offscreen. Rumor has it this was the case for Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart on Sabrina, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey on Dirty Dancing, and even Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling on The Notebook. Well, add Batman Forever's dastardly duo of Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey to this list. It turns out Jones loathed Carrey, and had no trouble letting it be known. While promoting his upcoming Dumb and Dumber To, Jim Carrey appeared on Howard Stern's show for a lengthy interview. About 55 minutes in, talk turns to Carrey's time playing the Riddler in Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, in which Tommy Lee Jones co-starred as Two-Face. Well, it turns out Jones was less than thrilled to be sharing scenes with the comedian, and wasn't shy about letting Carrey know. According to Carrey, »

British Superstar's Last Film Role Marred by Overtight Clothes, Fake Accent

28 October 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ivor Novello last film: 'Autumn Crocus' (photo: Ivor Novello and Fay Compton in 'Autumn Crocus') Can a plain looking, naive spinster school teacher ever find real love in faraway places? This was a question asked by Shirley Booth in Arthur Laurents' 1952 stage play The Time of the Cuckoo; Katharine Hepburn in the 1955 David Lean-directed film version, Summertime (1955); and Elizabeth Allen in the 1965 Richard Rodgers-Steven Sondheim musical adaptation, Do I Hear a Waltz? Can such a woman's yearning for romance ever be satisfied? "Yes" and "No," according to Basil Dean's fine 1934 British film Autumn Crocus, which marked the last film appearance of British stage and screen superstar Ivor Novello (Alfred Hitchcok's The Lodger). Autumn Crocus starts out during the holiday season, when two British schoolteachers decide to spend their vacation together on the Continent. Soft-hearted Jenny Grey (Fay Compton) longs to see the Austrian Alps, »

Donny Osmond's Strictly guest judge stint gets frosty reception

11 October 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Donny Osmond's guest stint on Strictly Come Dancing didn't appear to go down too well with viewers, judging by reactions on Twitter.

Osmond, who has won Strictly's Us counterpart Dancing With The Stars, was a special guest fifth judge for Movie Week.

However, not everyone was impressed by the veteran American popstar, and he has been mocked by viewers for his over-generous and erratic scoring - which included the first '10' of the series for Frankie Bridge - and more embarrassingly, his hair.

A small sample of the cheekiest and angriest Twitter reactions are below.

Watching Strictly on catch up. Mrs E really not happy that Donny Osmond is dishing out real marks that may make a difference.

Chris Evans (@achrisevans) October 11, 2014

I think Donny Osmond might have wrestled the "worst guest judge" trophy right out of Jennifer Grey's hands. #scd

Thanks to You: Two New Amazon Original Series Get the Greenlight

A dramatic psychological thriller set in a corrupt modern city and a sunny, coming-of-age comedy set in the 80s.  Introducing the two new Amazon Original Series headed into production: Red Oaks, from producer Steven Soderbergh (Traffic), and Hand of God, written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice) and directed by Marc Forster (World War Z).

20 Fun Facts about A Nightmare On Elm Street

2 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A Nightmare on Elm Street was such a fun and entertaining horror movie. The amazing concept of a monstrous character who haunts and kills teenagers in their dreams has scared audiences for years! I don't know why, but this is a movie that never really scared me, even though I saw it at such a young age. I might have been 9 or 10 when I first saw it, and I thought it was the coolest horror flick ever. It holds a special place in my heart. This is one of the horror movies that I enjoy revisiting during the Halloween season, and I've put together a list of 20 fun facts about the movie that you might not know.

'Red Oaks' co-creator Gregory Jacobs talks about his Amazon pilot

17 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Late last month, Amazon released its third batch of series pilots, ahead of the premieres of any of the shows from the second batch. (“Transparent” is being released on the 26th, and I’ll have a bunch of content about that next week.) “Red Oaks” — a comedy about a teenage tennis pro at a New Jersey country club in the summer of 1985, created by Gregory Jacobs and Joe Gangemi, directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Steven Soderbergh— was easily my favorite of the five new pilots (you can watch it here), and I’m hopeful that after the round of costumer feedback concludes at the end of this month, Amazon will order it to series. I interviewed Jacobs — Soderbergh’s long-time 1st assistant director, an executive producer on Soderbergh’s Cinemax hospital drama “The Knick,” and director of the upcoming “Magic Mike” sequel — by email about the origins of “Red Oaks, »

Red Oaks, Ep. 1.01: “Pilot” is enjoyable, but capable of more

2 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Craig Roberts, Richard Kind

Red Oaks, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”

Written by Gregory Jacobs and Joe Gangemi

Directed by David Gordon Green

Released August 28, 2014 by Amazon

Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh recently made a new foray into television following his announced retirement from filmmaking to helm all episodes of the first season of Showtime’s The Knick. That’s not the only tv project Soderbergh is involved in, however, as he has also teamed up with filmmaker David Gordon Green, among others, as a producer for the potential series Red Oaks. Following a university student in 1985 New Jersey as he tries to figure out the next stage of his life while working at a tennis club, Amazon and the creators have released the pilot online in hopes of getting a series order. The pilot, while not touching on the full potential of the show, is nonetheless an entertaining episode with a lot of promise for the series. »

'Red Oaks' needs to sharpen its '80s story

30 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Red Oaks, one of the new Amazon Studios pilots now available to watch, is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, but it’s certainly nothing like his current airing television project, the dark early-20th-century medical drama The Knick. Though Red Oaks could sound like a similarly bloody affair, Soderbergh’s never been one to stick to a genre, and the show is a small scale comedy named for a country club in New Jersey where the hero, David, gets a gig as a tennis pro one summer in the ’80s. There’s potential within Red Oaks if Amazon does decide »
