Our Holiday Favorites 2014: 'The Holiday' Cheers Up Elizabeth

15 hours ago | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Welcome back to Slackerwood's annual Holiday Favorites series. Over the next month or so, we'll talk about our favorite movies to watch in the winter holiday season, and ask various friends in the film community to share their favorites with us too. 

When actor Eli Wallach died earlier this year, I immediately thought of his work in Nancy Meyers' The Holiday. Certainly he appeared in more notable pictures, but The Holiday is near and dear to my heart (as is How to Steal a Million, in which he also appears). A romantic comedy only vaguely related to end-of-the-year festivities, the "Holiday" here represents the short breaks Brit Iris (Kate Winslet) and American Amanda (Cameron Diaz) take from their regular schedules as they trade homes for a couple weeks.

Wallach plays an endearing remnant from Classic Hollywood, the kind of old codger who will namedrop Cary Grant at the same »

Thn Turns 11! A Look Back At Our Favourite Films – Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004)

20 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Every once in a while a film comes along which completely changes your mind on a certain actor, whether it be for positive or negative reasons. Either their performance was astounding, proving their ability to morph seamlessly into their role, or was so disappointing you’d rather not talk about it. Jim Carrey, known for his slapstick humour and numerous comedy stints in films such as Ace Ventura, Bruce Almighty and Dumb And Dumber, features as the shy, retiring Joel Barish in the 2004 science fiction drama Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and, boy, did he exceed my expectations tenfold.

I remember exactly where I was when I was introduced to Eternal Sunshine – a media studies lesson at the end of term, circa 2008. It had previously been shown on Channel 4, but its concept and narrative chronology was too much for me to handle on a Sunday evening, so I changed the channel. »

The 41-year-old actress, who was married to Bradley Cooper for five months until they filed for divorce in May 2007, tied the knot with the British model in New York City on Sunday, where they run a gluten-free bakery called Jennifer's Way. According to a guest at the nuptials, who wrote about the wedding on his blog Gluten Dude, the couple's food on their big day all came from their own shop. He wrote: ''Great vibe. Great service. Phenomenal food. (sic)'' The 'Blue Bloods' actress announced she and Louis, 38, were engaged in May when she appeared on Katie Couric's talk show to promote her book, 'Jennifer's Way'.

From Oscar to Paycheck: 10 winners who smartly cashed in on the win

20 November 2014 11:11 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's a common misconception that winning an Academy Award can significantly alter an actor's earnings or even turn them into movie star with serious box office clout. Speak to movie fans or even people who work in the industry and you'll find them making one false assumption after another.   Here's one commonly heard example: Halle Berry received a per-picture salary boost after her Oscar-winning turn in "Monster's Ball." Sure, but she'd booked her role in the blockbuster "Die Another Day" long before she took home the big prize and was already under contract for the two remaining  "X-Men" movies at the time. Those two franchises had just as much to do with her landing a "Catwoman" paycheck as her Best Actress Academy Award. Moreover, winners such as Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Morgan Freeman, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet, Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, »

Lionsgate set for UK TV push

20 November 2014 5:13 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mad Men producer and distributor Lionsgate is to ramp up its push into television production in the UK and is looking to hire development and production executives.

The company, which also produces Netflix’s female prison drama Orange Is The New Black and ABC’s country drama Nashville, is also searching for a head of UK TV production.

Lionsgate UK chief executive Zygi Kamasa said: “We want to create more British TV content that works in the UK but that we can also take back to the Us networks through [Lionsgate TV chairman] Kevin Beggs’ relationships. The Us networks want more British content.”

Lionsgate recently shot The Royals, a soapy Us drama about the British royal family starring Liz Hurley, in London.

Several years ago, it produced Stanley Park, a TX pilot for BBC3. The show, which was co-produced by comedy indie 6 Degrees Media, told the story of a group of young friends as they went through a series of life-changing »

The 7 Most Important Images from the 'Cinderella' Trailer

19 November 2014 11:32 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Are you aware of this thing called "Cinderella"? Here's what it is: a movie, basically, but a thing where Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, and -- for some reason -- other actors are invited to dress up in costumes and be great together. I don't know why people named "Lily James" and "Richard Madden" get to be in this, but apparently they play Cinderella and the prince. Cate (pronounced Cate) plays the Wicked Stepmother (!) and Helena Bonham Carter plays the Fairy Godmother (!!). I wonder if they were supposed to play opposite roles originally but made a Betty White-Rue McClanahan-type switch in pre-production. Anyway, the trailer is decadent. Watch. There are seven important images in this. Here they are.   Here is Cate. Wicked as hell. Check out that damn bone structure, mortals. I wouldn't be surprised if Cate's parents were Glenn Close and a swan. Um, we're only »

The Earth Speaks: A Conversation on Paul W.S. Anderson's "Pompeii"

18 November 2014 9:57 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Paul W.S. Anderson has continued his explorations in 3D cinema with his latest film, Pompeii. It’s a simplistic love story in the vein of Titanic, two mismatched, class-divided lovers contrasted against one of history’s worst natural disasters. The story concerns a Celtic gladiator named Milo (Kit Harrington), who witnessed the slaughter of his family by the Roman Empire, under the command of Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland). Soon, after being spotted as a promising business prospect for Pompeii’s gladiator games, Milo is sent to the titular city. While on the way, he first meets Cassia (Emily Browning), the melancholic (by way of Kate Winslet in Titanic) daughter of the wealthy class. After arriving in Pompeii, Milo meets fellow slave and gladiator Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and they soon become friends, bonded by their captivity. Corvus, now a senator, arrives in Pompeii to broker a land deal, and with all the players now arrived, »

Steve Carell Is Santa Barbara’s Outstanding Performer Of The Year

17 November 2014 6:31 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival will hand its 2015 Outstanding Performer of the Year Award to Foxcatcher star Steve Carell. A tribute celebrating his performance in Bennett Miller’s film will take place on February 6. Foxcatcher debuted in Cannes and sets an almost unrecognizable Carell as the reclusive, wrestling-obsessed millionaire John du Pont. Sbiff executive director Roger Durling says of Carell, “He’s made us laugh for so many years with his great comedic abilities, but he shows this year that his range and artistry runs deep with his career-changing performance in Foxcatcher. He is unrecognizable physically and emotionally.”

Sony Pictures Classics released Foxcatcher this past weekend on the heels of screenings at the Academy earlier this week. The film led the specialty box office, opening with a robust $288K in six theaters. Carell’s performance has stirred critical acclaim leading into awards season.

Previous Outstanding Performer Award recipients at Santa Barbara include Cate Blanchett, »

'Foxcatcher's' Steve Carell named Santa Barbara fest's Outstanding Performer of the Year

17 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival announced today that Steve Carell is the recipient of this year's Outstanding Performer of the Year Award for his work in Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." The news comes right on the heels of the film's Thursday night AFI Fest premiere and theatrical release this weekend. "He's made us laugh for so many years with his great comedic abilities," Sbiff Executive Director Roger Durling said, "but he shows this year that his range and artistry runs deep with his career-changing performance in 'Foxcatcher.' He is unrecognizeable physically and emotionally." Indeed, Carell is outstanding in this film, and curiously, there have been those who don't think he'll figure into the Best Actor Oscar race. Maybe it's some combination of expecting the film to struggle with Academy types (it's a chilly exercise, to be sure) and the notion that his is more of a supporting performance than a leading one, »
