The dancing queens to return for a sequel to Mamma Mia

19 May 2017 6:12 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I hope you're ready for the music of Abba as sung by Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried and Colin Firth, because Universal Pictures have announced that they're currently moving forward on a sequel to Mamma Mia!. It's been close to ten years since the release of the first film, but as Mamma Mia! took in over $600 million with a $52 million budget, the better question... Read More »

Newswire: Mamma Mia! is getting a sequel, so here we go again

19 May 2017 5:53 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Good news for Abba fans who can’t get enough of love triangles, big musical numbers, and sugar-dense sweetness: Universal has just placed a sequel to Mamma Mia! onto its 2018 film schedule. Subtitled, with a somewhat appropriate weariness, Here We Go Again!, the film will be written and directed by Ol Parker, who penned the screenplay for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

It’s not clear how Universal intends to follow on from the original, which saw big-name stars like Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, and Colin Firth beg each other to take a chance on them, all against the backdrop of Streep’s daughter’s wedding. One possible direction being flouted is a prequel, tracing the paths of the older characters back in the ’70s, although anything that minimizes Streep’s presence seems like a misstep, given that she was the most successful part of the 2008 original.

‘Mamma Mia’ Sequel Gets Release Date, Director at Universal

19 May 2017 4:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal is officially moving along on a sequel to the 2008 hit “Mamma Mia,” with “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” scribe Ol Parker writing and directing the new movie. The studio also dated the film, titled “Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!,” for July 20, 2018.

Playtone Pictures, which produced the first pic, is back on for the sequel.

Universal has been bouncing around ideas for years on how to proceed with the box office smash. Sources say that one angle could focus on Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, and Pierce Brosnan characters years before the original takes place. The first film is based on the iconic musical about a bride-to-be trying to find her real father told using hit songs by the popular ’70s group Abba.

The sequel will feature Abba songs not featured in the 2008 movie, “along with some reprised favorites,” according to the studio’s announcement. Littlestar’s Judy Craymer and Playtone’s Gary Goetzman, »

Exclusive: Gina Rodriguez Reveals Boyfriend's Adorable Reaction to Her 'Prom Pic' With Brad Pitt

18 May 2017 12:28 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Gina Rodriguez's boyfriend, Joe LoCicero, was just as excited as the actress when he learned that she had met Brad Pitt while at The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

The Jane the Virgin star snapped a "prom pic" with the 53-year-old actor on Tuesday, and admitted to Et's Leanne Aguilera that she totally fangirled over the A-lister -- and so did her guy. "When I was talking to my boyfriend about it, he was like, 'It's like you met the male Beyonce,'" Rodriguez quipped while at the the 2017 CW Upfronts in New York City on Thursday. "I was like, 'Thank you.' That's why I love my boyfriend. He's so awesome. He's so incredible."

16 May 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Univision executives gave a big plug to the multicultural programming on cabler Fusion and the efforts to diversify the range of programming on the mothership broadcast networks during its upfront presentation in New York on Tuesday.

“What marketers thought of as multicultural media is fast becoming mainstream,” Steve Mandala, Univision’s exec VP of ad sales, told the crowd of media buyers gathered at the Lyric Theater.

Fusion unveiled a creative board stocked with boldface names to “identify the next generation of creators and build a pipeline of diverse talent the network can tap into.” The list includes actresses Viola Davis, Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster, “O.J.: Made in America” director Ezra Edelman and Puerto Rican rapper Residente. Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. will chair the board.

Programming executives discussed their efforts to expand into new program formats beyond the telenovela staples. They also emphasized the focus on cross-media storytelling spanning TV and digital platforms.

Previous Oscar winners will litter the race again this year

15 May 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Some years, it feels like all of the Academy Award contenders are fresh faces. The hopefuls for Oscar nominations and wins are on the scene for the first time and vying to join the club. Other times, it’s a mix between old and new. Still other times, it seems like a disproportionately large amount of would be nominees and prospective winners have been there before. 2017 seems like it’s going to be one of those years. We don’t fully know how it’s going to shape up just yet, but there’s a whole host of golden statue owners who might end up thinking about making room on their mantle for more this time around. If nothing else, this is just a primer to keep in mind when the fall and winter months come calling. Here is the list of all former winners who have something in contention this year. »

Tom Hanks to star in News of the World

14 May 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Deadline, Fox 2000 has tapped Lion screenwriter Luke Davies to adapt Paulette Jiles’ novel News of the World as a star vehicle for Tom Hanks, who is producing alongside Gary Goetzman and Gail Mutrux (The Danish Girl).

News of the World takes place in 1870 and revolves “around a road trip through the untamed West taken by unlikely traveling partners. On the one hand is Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, a Texan who travels from town to town to read the news to locals who would otherwise not know what is going on in the world. While Kidd is sparked up by spreading the word of the passage of the 15th Amendment that gave voting rights to all men, he agrees to escort a 10-year-old white girl to her aunt and uncle in San Antonio after she was rescued from the Kiowa Indian tribe that kidnapped her and killed her family four years earlier. »

The Link Has Two Faces

Your Weekend Must Read

Emily Yoshida at Vulture gazes at Ingmar Bergman's Persona but she sees way beyond that, too, to the dream space shared by cinema's curious subgenre of female identity swapping. 

Two women talking: a recipe for witchcraft, an unnatural feedback loop, a cursed redundancy. Ingmar Bergman’s 1966 masterpiece Persona is a landmark for many reasons, but its legacy, which has show no signs of age in the 50 years since it was released in the U.S. and the U.K., is how it stared that anxiety in the face and opened up a loopy, meandering conversation that’s still going on to this day...

Scarlett Johansson: Lost In Blockbusters!

Tom Jolliffe on Scarlett Johansson

I’m a fan of Scarlett Johansson. As an actress I think she’s interesting. She’s almost always engaging. She has a sultry old fashioned quality. Frankly she’s gorgeous, which whilst that shouldn’t be as important as it is in Hollywood (and it still is) that means she is a leading lady.

For most, the role which bought her to prominence was her breakout leading role in Lost In Translation. An interesting and subtle performance in a beautiful film. She’s been working solidly since her beginnings as a child actress but Lost In Translation launched her into adulthood and right into the Hollywood A-list. A string of diverse roles added to her CV and offered more glimpses into an undoubted talent to transfix an audience. We’re talking here about an actress with four golden globe nominations thus far and someone »

To celebrate Mother's Day we're taking a look at our 5 favourite mother/daughter acting duos who've made a name for themselves in Hollywood.

Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis

Not only are these two mother and daughter but they've had some of the most iconic female roles in horror movie history. Janet Leigh was a bonafide scream queen from the late 1950's up until the early 1980's. She starred in Touch of Evil, The Fog, and of course Psycho for which she received an Oscar nomination. Jamie Lee Curtis first gained mainstream attention with her portrayal of Laurie in John Carpenter's Halloween which sparked a multi-decade franchise. She has since solidified herself among Hollywood greats with Freaky Friday, True Lies, and A Fish Called Wanda.

Why Sidney Poitier’s ‘Stir Crazy’ Is Still the Most Successful Movie Ever Made By a Black Director

12 May 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the history of black filmmaking, “Stir Crazy” is rarely cited as a groundbreaker or an enduring high point. However, Sidney Poitier’s 1980 comedy sold more tickets in North America than “The Fate of the Furious,” or any other film by a black director.

Poitier’s career has included multiple breakout moments. He was the first black lead acting Oscar winner with “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner;” he starred in two blockbuster films in 1967 with “To Sir With Love” (over $300 million, adjusted gross) and “In the Heat of the Night” ($177 million, adjusted gross). He was, more than even Denzel Washington or any other black actor-turned-director, an icon of cinema when he made “Stir Crazy.” And it was this film, more than any other, that found access to all domestic audiences.

That said, it’s a film that doesn’t have the resonance of other historical blockbusters like “Gone With the Wind, »
