A Love Pentagram and a New Brother! 6 Teases for Witches of East End Season 2

4 July 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Darkness is rising on Witches of East End.

When viewers last saw the Beauchamp women, they had defeated Penelope (Virginia Madsen), but the fight had only just begun. First, Joanna was left fatally poisoned, and her death also triggered the power within her sons, Dash (Eric Winter) and Killian (Daniel Di Tomasso), which surfaced during their death match over Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum). At the same time, Ingrid (Rachel Boston) was forced to open the portal to Asgard — the magical realm they originally came from --  leaving the door wide open for any enemy whom Joanna (Julia Ormond) and Wendy (Madchen Amick) left behind to seek revenge.

To raise money for a good cause, but mainly to show they're not over the hill, a group of middle-aged women form their own basketball team to take on the local high school starlets. But hard-bodied teens are the least of their worries as Brooke Shields, Daryl Hannah, Virginia Madsen and Wanda Sykes must deal with old grudges, straying husbands and the creeping menace of the menopause. With girl-powered hits from Desperately Seeking Susan to Sex And The City on her CV, director Susan Seidelman - like her feisty cast - knows just how to play the oestro-comedy game. »

Cannes: Stealth and Atlas Nab Frankie Muniz Comedy ‘Road to Capri’

17 May 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — Stealth Media Group has boarding comedy “Road to Capri” for international sales, and will introduce the project to buyers in Cannes. Atlas Distribution Company will handle U.S. distribution.

The cast includes Frankie Muniz (“Malcolm in the Middle”), Virginia Madsen (“Sideways”), Ian McShane (“Deadwood”), Maria Grazia Cucinotta (“Il Postino”), Franco Nero (“Django”) and Nicolas Vaporidis (“Men Vs Women”).

The film follows two young men, one American, Daniel (Muniz), and the other Italian, Luca (Vaporidis), who have absolutely nothing in common until one fateful day. On that day each would learn of the death of their father — but what neither was expecting to learn was that their father was the same man, and that they had inherited the family home in Capri, equally. Under the guidance of their uncle, Guido (Nero), they set out on a road of discovery that leads to Capri and the “sharing” of the family home. »

Italy’s Cinecitta Studios Get Google Doodle Celebration

28 April 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Rome’s Cinecittà Studios are being celebrated with a Google Doodle on the 77th anniversary of the day the sprawling facilities were inaugurated, on April 28 1937, by Benito Mussolini in an attempt to boost the Italian film industry.

This rare distinction for a film studio caused their website to crash.

Alas the historic studios known as Hollywood on the Tiber in their 1960′s heyday have long been languishing, with production levels plummeting since the 1990′s and workers recently protesting against layoffs amid a long-stalled controversial makeover which has yet to materialise.

Still, the massive 100-acre facility once considered Europe’s largest, where “Ben Hur,” “Quo Vadis”  and, more recently, Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of new York,” and HBO’s “Rome” where shot, has seen some international biz lately. A portion of Baltasar Kormakur’s “Everest,” produced by Working Title, recently shot there. And next up is U.S. comedy “Road To Capri, »

DVD Review – The Last Keepers (2013)

21 April 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Last Keepers, 2013.

Directed by Maggie Greenwald.

Starring Aidan Quinn, Virginia Madsen, Olympia Dukakis and Zosia Mamet.

Synopsis:

A young woman and her family discover she has magical powers, possibly fulfilling a prophecy that has been in their family for years. She must negotiate that with the everyday tribulations of school and growing up.

The Last Keepers is a coming of age tale. With a coming of age family drama. With magic?

It’s with this slightly sarcastic front that I met the film, a synopsis about a young woman’s story of growing up with magical potential not grabbing me as much as, say, explosions and men wearing capes. But part of the way through I realised, though not perfect, The Last Keepers is a film you need to meet halfway. If done so, it’s an enjoyable, if short movie that tells the age-old story that growing up is hard. »

‘The Last Keepers’ Review

20 April 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Zosia Mamet, Sam Underwood, Aidan Quinn, Virginia Madsen, Olympia Dukakis, Nat Wolff, Joshua Bowman, Jee Young Han | Written by Peter Hutchings, Christina Mengert | Directed by Maggie Greenwald

Rhea Carver (Mamet) is different. She makes art and clothes from rubbish she picks up from the ground, her family are reclusive artists and this leads to trouble in school as she is ridiculed for her strange behaviour. When she falls in love with Oliver (Underwood) from her school she awakens a power within herself which stems from an ancient family secret. This leads her on a tale of wonder and magic as she tries to figure out who she is and what she can do with this new found power.

The Last Keepers is a tale of love and magic. It deals with the awkwardness of high school, bullying, young romance and family troubles, sometimes to an almost cheesy level but »

The Wilderness Of James Review [SXSW 2014]

23 March 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Johnson makes his feature debut with The Wilderness Of James, a film that explores one boy’s attempts at dealing with loss during a tumultuous time in his life. Filled with raw emotionality throughout, the film never feels like a debut, but rather the work of a seasoned veteran. Then again, considering the outstanding performance from Kodi Smit-McPhee anchoring the film, Johnson’s job had to have been a lot easier than it might have been otherwise.

The film picks up a few months months after the death of James’ (Kodi Smit-McPhee) father and he’s struggling to find a way to cope. He goes to a therapist, but that doesn’t give him much help, nor does the possibility of going to a school for gifted kids. Instead, he takes to the woods and the streets, drifting around in a haze until he’s able to meet a new friend, »

New Season Of Wigs With Julia Stiles Leaves YouTube, Heads To Hulu

19 March 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Wigs was one of the original recipients of a very large check from YouTube back in 2011 when the video sharing site first launched its Original Channels Initiative. Since then, the collection of dramatic, online video stories created by Jon Avnet (Black Swan, Fried Green Tomatoes, Risky Business), Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment, Big Love), and Jake Avnet has gone on to encompass “15 high-end original series, 7 short films and 10 documentaries” all featuring well-known females in leading roles. The production shop has also received funding from Fox. Meanwhile, YouTube has removed all references to its Original Channels Initiative and isn’t funding new programming the same way it once was. With an influx of cash from a major broadcast network and performances from traditional talent like Julia Stiles, Troian Bellisario, Jennifer Beals, Jennifer Garner, Virginia Madsen, Dakota Fanning, and more, it’s not surprising that Wigs is ditching YouTube for Hulu. »

SXSW 2014: 'Wilderness of James' and 'Other Months'

16 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Tired of the downtown scene after a weekend of expensive parking, crowds, and shuttle buses, I spent a day at the Alamo Drafthouse Village SXSatellite location. The satellite theaters have been a godsend for their convenience as well as the larger number of films the SXSW programmers can select because of them.

We at Slackerwood only wish the Village and Slaughter satellite locations screened films for the entire festival, instead of just through Thursday. (The Marchesa screened through Saturday, thankfully.)

The Wilderness of James

My first selection was a beautiful exploration of the teen psyche by first-time director Michael Johnson. The Wilderness of James stars Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) as James Charm, a young man obsessed with death. Living alone with his mother (Virginia Madsen) and bullied by the neighbor kids, he spends his time sketching dead animals and visiting his therapist (Danny DeVito, in one of the warmest »

SXSW 2014 Interview: Michael Johnson, Isabelle Fuhrman & Glenn Howerton on The Wilderness of James

14 March 2014 5:03 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Michael Johnson gave himself quite the challenge making “The Wildness of James” his first feature film. Even though it does have a refined, grounded narrative at its core, it also requires Johnson to present that story in hyper real form so that the audience can have access to the title character on a much deeper level, and he really pulls it off. The film focuses on Kodi Smit-McPhee’s James Charm. When his mother (Virginia Madsen) decides that he isn’t coping with his father’s death appropriately, she insists that he see a therapist (Danny DeVito). However, it isn’t until James steps outside of his own world, beyond his problems and begins  [ Read More ]

SXSW 2014 Review: The Wilderness Of James

11 March 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Wilderness of James marks an impressive feature debut for Michael Johnson, functioning as a thoughtful, engrossing character piece that allows you to leave your own troubles behind to experience, understand and care about someone else’s, and that quality in itself is refreshing. Hit the jump for my full review of The Wilderness of James from the SXSW Film Festival. Months after his father’s passing, Abigail Charm (Virginia Madsen) decides that her son isn’t socially adjusting well so decides to send him to a therapist (Danny DeVito). James (Kodi Smit-McPhee) does have problems that need addressing, but clinical help isn’t doing the trick. However, in the midst of this gloomy haze, James does manage to find some solace in two new friends, another patient at the clinic, Val (Isabelle Fuhrman), and someone he meets on the street, Harmon (Evan Ross).

SXSW 2014: Kodi Smit-McPhee Talks The Wilderness Of James, Being Free with the Character, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, and More

9 March 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From writer/director Michael James Johnson, The Wilderness of James (playing at the SXSW Film Festival), tells the story of a lost teenager named James (Kodi Smit-McPhee). He’s crawled into his shell as he struggles to deal with the tragic death of his father, and he lives in a world of his own making that is defined by his bizarre fascination with death. As tensions mount with his mother (Virginia Madsen) at home, he begins to explore the wilderness of the city, finding himself drawn to a girl (Isabelle Fuhrman) and a charismatic stranger (Evan Ross). During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Australian actor Kodi Smit-McPhee talked about how he came to be a part of this film, why he was so drawn to the role, what his typical process is for finding a character, letting himself be free with the character, why the set was such a good environment, »

“Ellen” Hits a Ratings High, “Himym” Prompts Meltdowns and “Svu” Tackles Homophobic Bullying in Sports

News

Timbaland will write and produce music for Empire, the hip-hop music drama from Lee Daniels and Danny Strong.

There seems to be plenty of strong reactions to last night‘s How I Met Your Mother, fueling a certain fan theory about how the series ends. I’m still rooting for the show ending in divorce, that’s the only way I can justify the way they’ve made Ted such a jerk this season.

Virginia Madsen has joined the cast of NBC’s revised Babylon Fields pilot. Madsen’s career choices have been oddly hit-and-miss (anyone remember Scoundrels?) I’m hoping this is one of her better shows.

TBS has ordered a pilot of Clippers, a comedy from Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick. The series follows a group who participated in different social circles in high school but now work together in a barber shop.
