'House of Cards': Frank Underwood More Popular Than Obama

23 March 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In Season 3 of House of Cards, which is currently streaming on Netflix, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) finally ascended to the Presidency, although he performed a number of heinous acts to achieve his ultimate goal. As it turns out, more Americans would prefer to have this fictional Potus in office than the current Commander-in-Chief, Barack Obama. A Reuters poll taken earlier this month reveals that just 46% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Barack Obama, while 57% of respondents in the same poll gave Frank Underwood a favorable opinion.

In fact, several other TV presidents scored much higher than Obama's 46%. 24's President David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) scored a whopping 89% favorable rating, out of those respondents who have seen the Fox series. The West Wing's Jed Bartlett (Martin Sheen) was just behind Palmer with an 82% approval rating, followed by Battlestar Galactica's Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell) with 78%, and Scandal's Fitz Grant »

17 March 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Don’t you forget about Molly Ringwald. Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t!

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’ 1985 classic, The Breakfast Club, stars Ringwald and Ally Sheedy attended a special screening at SXSW (a digitally remastered version of the film will also be released in select theaters from March 26-31). Which seems like the perfect opportunity to find out what our favorite detention-goers look like three decades later:

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 »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

10 March 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After three straight years with four of the six supporting comedy actor slots belonging to "Modern Family," last year finally saw the majority figure cut in half with only Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson making the cut (and Burrell winning). Ed O'Neill and/or Eric Stonestreet could make a comeback, or maybe the "Family" love will reduce further this time around? That all depends on whether Tony Hale ("Veep"), Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"), Adam Driver ("Girls") and/or Andre Braugher ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") can return from last year, and if Martin Sheen ("Grace and Frankie"), Sam Waterson ("Grace and Frankie"), Laurence Fishburne ("Blackish") and/or Josh Gad ("The Comedians") can squeak in for their shows' first seasons.

Emile Hirsch And Brian Cox Set For The Autopsy Of Jane Doe

8 March 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Troll Hunter director André Øvredal has had to weather the usual changes and delays for his new indie thriller The Autopsy Of Jane Doe. While Martin Sheen was once attached to star, the film will now feature Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox, which seems like a fair trade.The pair is set as father-and-son coroners who receive the body of a mysterious murder victim, a beautiful young woman. The fact that she’s unidentified is just the first puzzling thing. There’s also the fact that her body shows no apparent cause of death. As they dig into the mystery, they unearth a series of increasingly bizarre clues that in turn lead them to her terrifying secrets...Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing wrote the script for this one, with Øvredal gearing up for a shoot in London at the end of this month. Fingers crossed it works out this time. »

Interview: Writer, Director Allison Burnett on ‘Ask Me Anything’

4 March 2015 1:14 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The number of writers who have adapted and directed their own novels as films is a very small and elite club, and it includes writer/director Allison Burnett. His 2014 film, “Ask Me Anything,” is being released on DVD on March 3rd, 2015, and features Britt Robertson, Justin Long, Christian Slater and Martin Sheen.

Ask Me Anything” was adapted by Burnett from his 2009 novel “Undiscovered Gyrl,” and is a gritty and multi-layered story of a girl blogger whose truth telling gets in the way of her expectations. Up-and-coming actress Britt Robertson portrays Katie Kampenfelt, taking a sabbatical between high school and college. Along the way, she can’t help being attracted to older men, including characters portrayed by Justin Long, Christian Slater and the always virtuous Martin Sheen. “Ask Me Anything” is a modern and incendiary love story, if loving yourself becomes necessary for survival.

Netflix lines up more exclusives

3 March 2015 1:46 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Netflix already has a formidable line-up of exclusive content ready to unleash when it launches in Australia and New Zealand on March 24- and more is it come. The third series of Orange is the New Black, a Netflix production, will screen on the subscription VOD service after it premieres on Foxtel.s showcase in June. Moreover, the Us streaming giant is working on deals with MGM and Warner Bros which would mean their first-run movies will debut on Netflix at the same time as their pay-tv premieres on Foxtel Movies.

Neither has been signed but If understands the MGM arrangement is in final negotiations and WB is highly likely to pact with Netflix as its output deal with the Nine Network, worth a reported $150 million a year, has expired, and the studio needs to generate more revenue from its pay-tv and free-tv deals.

What happened to the cast of Breakfast Club? John Hughes classic is 30

15 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

30 years ago today, John Hughes's teen movie The Breakfast Club opened in the Us, and although it wasn't a runaway box office hit, in the years since it has rightly claimed a place as a screen classic.

Buoyed by brilliant performances, a sharp script and direction from Hughes and that Simple Minds track, this is a film we return to again and again. But what happened to its stars? We go then and now with the cast to find out what happened to the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess and the criminal.

Anthony Michael Hall - Brian Johnson

A staple of John Hughes movies in the '80s, Hall brought endearing geeky charm to National Lampoon's Vacation , Sixteen Candles and Weird Science.

As he grew out of child star roles, Hall sought to shed his established screen persona with a diverse selection of character parts across film and TV. »

Bill Clinton’s Film Endorsements

6 February 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Bill Clinton likes a good movie.

A self-declared film buff, the former president has most recently endorsed the Netflix documentary Virunga and Ava DuVernay’s Selma.

According to a 2014 study by The Wall Street Journal, NBC News and the Annenberg Public Policy Center, an endorsement from Clinton makes political candidates appear to be 38 percent more favorable among voters. But does this effect carry over to his movie choices?

Some think yes and other think no, but regardless of the effects, Clinton has offered his praise for many films throughout the year.

Clinton made a surprise appearance at the New York Museum of Arts and Design’s Virunga screening on Jan. 31, along with his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The documentary, executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, follows a team of park rangers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Virunga National Park as »

'Spider-Man': J.K. Simmons May Return as J. Jonah Jameson

31 January 2015 2:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One character The Amazing Spider-Man never got around to showing was fan-favorite J. Jonah Jameson, Peter's boss at the Daily Bugle. While it was rumored that Jim Carrey might play a new version of Jameson in the big screen reboot, there were also plenty of rumblings that J.K. Simmons may reprise the iconic role. Now, the actor has backed up these rumors, claiming he's heard about the possibility of a new project that could see him return.

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, the radio legend asked J.K. Simmons if he was every going to do another Spider-Man. His answer was not 'no'. In fact, the actor states:

"I just heard that we...that's a possibility."

Howard Stern follows this up by asking if he even wants to come back to once again play J. Jonah Jameson. The actor's response:

"Absolutely."

This is interesting, not just because he might return, »

Trash movie review: you know, for kids?

29 January 2015 8:55 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This isn’t a children’s movie… and yet it kind of is, too, with its odd mishmash of social realism, action thrills, misplaced comedy, and simplistic drama. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The police in Rio de Janeiro “treat poor people like trash.” So says young teen Raphael (Rickson Tevez), in case you hadn’t already grasped the double entendre of the title. When Raphael discovers a really nice, surely accidentally discarded wallet while working as a trash picker in a massive Rio landfill, he shares the cash with his pal Gardo (Eduardo Luis), and then the two are off on a sort of treasure hunt to unravel the meaning of the other mysterious items in the wallet, including a train-station locker key, photos of a little girl, »
