Karlovy Vary: Mel Gibson Plays Mel Gibson in B&W Festival Trailer

9 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Among the many small pleasures of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival are the trailers featuring recent recipients of the main award, the Crystal Globe For Artistic Contribution to World Cinema — this may be the only award that is easier to say in Czech— including Helen Mirren, Jude Law, Harvey Keitel, Miloš Forman, John Malkovich, Andy Garcia, Jiří Menzel and Czech actress Věra Chytilová. The trailers gently spoof the prizewinner interacting with the physical award itself, a solid glass globe held aloft by a golden female figure. The best of them has the now elderly Chytilová trying to put a smashed globe back together with scotch tape, then eyeing her little coffee-table Frankenstein while blowing her nose loudly. I’m not sure I get the specific joke, but it’s funny anyway. This year’s trailer features last year’s winner, Mel Gibson, and plays on the actor’s reputation for, »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

TV Worth Watching

"7 Days in Hell" (Saturday on HBO at 10 p.m.)

Bless whoever came up with this random 45-minute mockumentary about an epic seven-day tennis match. Andy Samberg -- looking more "Joe Dirt" David Spade than Andre Agassi -- and Kit Harington (Jon Snow + comedy = win) are the players, with real tennis stars like Serena Williams and John McEnroe giving commentary.

"The Spoils Before Dying" (Wednesday on IFC at 9 p.m.)

Are you ready for this three-night television event? Not possible! But it's coming anyway. "The Spoils Before Dying" is the comedy follow-up to "The Spoils of Babylon" miniseries. This spoof once again stars Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Haley Joel Osment, Val Kilmer, Michael Sheen, Maya Rudolph and more, this time following a 1950s jazz pianist »

Furious 8

Vin Diesel was recently asked by Access Hollywood about quotes from Dame Helen Mirren from back in March about her desire to play a villain role in the "Fast and Furious" franchise. Asked if he would like to see her in the next movie, he said: "Of course I would! Who wouldn't? It’s Helen."

Ant-Man

A lengthy new international trailer for Marvel's upcoming "Ant-Man" film seemingly spoils much of the story beats of the movie. For those who want to wait for the film, which scored solid if subdued reactions »

Film Rights to Michael Crichton’s Micro Acquired by DreamWorks Studios

26 June 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From The Andromeda Strain to Jurassic Park to Prey and beyond, the late Michael Crichton offered readers numerous gateways to intelligent escapism on the printed page. Published posthumously, 2011's Micro is no exception. DreamWorks Studios seems to agree, as the company has picked up the film rights to the thriller.

Press Release: "Los Angeles--(Business Wire)--DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to the Michael Crichton novel, “Micro,” it was announced today by Michael Wright, CEO of DreamWorks Studios. Frank Marshall is on board to produce, with Sherri Crichton and Laurent Bouzereau set as executive producers for CrichtonSun LLC.

The high-concept thriller follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company—only to find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the rain forest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

"Micro" was unfinished when Michael Crichton passed »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress

24 June 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rooney Mara surprised many by taking home the Best Actress prize at Cannes, as many thought her co-star Cate Blanchett would take it -- or the two would share. Whether we like it or not, the moment marked the beginning of Mara's campaign for a second Oscar nomination (and potential win) for Todd Haynes' "Carol." It's just a matter of whether The Weinstein Company will campaign them both in lead, or place Mara in supporting. The latter seems more like Harvey, and if that's the case we can pretty much guarantee that one of the category's five slots will go to Mara. Who joins her? That depends on how big, small or good dozens of hopefuls' roles are in films we -- in some cases -- won't see until November. The mighty likes of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Laura Linney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, »

The Long Good Friday review – sheer, ground-breaking brilliance

21 June 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A superb script and great turns from Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren are the making of John Mackenzie’s classic London gangland thriller

“What I’m looking for is someone who can contribute to what England has given to the world: culture, sophistication, genius – a little bit more than an ’ot dog, know what I mean?” John Mackenzie’s classic British thriller, from a rip-roaring script by Barrie Keeffe, nearly went straight to TV and only ended up in cinemas thanks to the intervention of George Harrison’s HandMade Films. Today it stands as a prophetic classic, as groundbreaking as Get Carter, as quotable as Withnail & I (“Shut up you long streak of paralysed piss”).

Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren are magnificent as the lord and lady of their underworld manor, attempting to develop London Docklands in a pre-Canary Wharf world, caught between American investors and Ira bombs. Phil Meheux »

Helen Mirren slams 'f**king outrageous' Hollywood ageism

20 June 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Helen Mirren has slammed Hollywood for "ageist" treatment against women.

Mirren was responding to a recent claim made by 37-year-old actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, who said that she lost out on a role because she was too old to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man.

"I think it's outrageous, it's f**king outrageous," Mirren said during a recent video interview for The Wrap's Power Woman Breakfast.

"Honestly, it's so annoying. We sat there watching James Bond...and as James Bond got more and more geriatric, his girlfriends got younger and younger."

The 79-year-old can next be seen alongside Aaron Paul and Alan Rickman in thriller Eye in the Sky.

She also admitted she wants a "mad driver" part in the Fast & Furious franchise and wouldn't say no to a "very cold and cruel" Game of Thrones role.

Can someone make that happen?

How Helen Mirren Feels About Hollywood Preferring To Cast Young Actresses

19 June 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The discussion of Hollywood ageism has been a hot topic among female actresses as of late, especially as older women are losing out on seemingly appropriate roles to much younger actresses. Just last month, Maggie Gyllenhaal was told she was too old at age 37 to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man. Well Dame Helen Mirren is not having that. The critically-acclaimed, established actress put her own two cents in about the subject of Hollywood ageism, calling it "fucking outrageous". The Wrap held their first Power Women Breakfast in NYC where the Academy Award-winning actress spoke openly about her problems with what the industry has been building towards. In response to the Maggie Gyllenhaal debacle, Mirren had the absolute perfect response, telling The Wrap: It.s fucking outrageous. It.s ridiculous. Honestly, it.s so annoying. And .twas ever thus. We all watched James Bond as he got more »
