It's May for Meryl

11 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As Meryl Streep starts her jury duties at the Berlinale, Murtada has news about her next film.

Streep at the Berlinale Jury Press Conference

Gird your loins! There must be a rupture in the movie universe because we might not get the new Meryl Streep movie when we usually do. Since 2008's Mamma Mia, movies led by Streep have had only 2 release dates. The December prestige slot (Doubt, The Iron Lady, August Osage County, Into the Woods). Or late summer blockbuster comedy counter programming (Julie and Julia, Hope Springs, Ricki and the Flash). Plus one anomaly with the comedy It's Complicated inexplicably slotted into the December prestige date. Yes comedies get released year round, but not Meryl comedies!

2016 is changing all that. Pathe have announced a May 6 UK release of Streep's latest, Florence Foster Jenkins. Directed by Stephen Frears and also starring Hugh Grant and Rebecca Ferguson, the film is »

20 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

I was terrified at the Academy Awards," screenwriter Ted Tally says. "I can't describe how nerve-racking it is. You go in the bathrooms, and people are boozing it up, smoking, doing lines of coke. You never saw so many famous people so nervous."

Twenty-five years ago on this coming Valentine's Day, The Silence of the Lambs opened in movie theaters. An intense, gritty crime odyssey, in which an FBI cadet (Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling) hunts down a serial killer (Ted Levine as Jame "Buffalo Bill" Gumb) with the help of another, »

Jury president Meryl Streep, wearing an elegant black and silver snakeskin-print gown, appeared unfazed by the online controversy surrounding her “We are all Africans” statement earlier in the day at the jury press conference.

Streep received loud applause from the crowds, signed autographs and lingered 10 minutes or more with other members of the jury, including actors Lars Eidinger and Clive Owen, actress Alba Rohrwacher and director Malgorzata Szumowska. They were then greeted by festival boss Dieter Kosslick under a huge red bear silhouette at the entrance to the Berlinale Palast.

Meryl Streep Is in Hot Water Over Some Questionable Comments About Diversity in Films

11 February 2016 10:25 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

After Meryl Streep wore a t-shirt that read "I'd rather be a rebel than a slave" while promoting her film Suffragette in October, she was criticized for promoting a message that was regarded as tone-deaf by many, and it seems the Hollywood legend is at it again thanks to a statement she made at the Berlin Film Festival. At a press conference on Thursday, Meryl - who serves on the festival's jury - was questioned by The Hollywood Reporter as to why the jury is all white. "This jury is evidence that at least women are included," she responded. "In fact, we [women] dominate this jury. That's an unusual situation in bodies of people that make decisions." Later on, the AP reports that when an Egyptian reporter asked the actress about whether or not she understood movies from North Africa and the Arab world, she said, "I've played a lot of »

11 February 2016 9:09 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Meryl Streep on Diversity at Berlin Film Festival: ‘We’re All Africans’

11 February 2016 3:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hot button industry topics of equality and diversity were on the agenda at the opening day, jury press conference of the Berlin Film Festival.

“I have no idea how to run a jury,” said Meryl Streep, this year’s jury president, in response to the inevitable media question about criteria for judging the competition movies. “But in the end I have two votes and (the other jury members) only have one each.”

Berlin has a reputation for being a politically minded festival, and Streep did not shy away from promoting an agenda of equality and inclusion. “(Equality) of genders, races, ethnicities, religion,” she opined. “This jury is also evidence that women are included and can even dominate – that is unusual in bodies that make decisions.”

When asked if she understood films from the Arab world and North Africa, Streep said: “There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, »
