Newswire: Lily Tomlin’s lifetime achievement award celebration will be a 9 To 5 reunion

It makes sense that Jane Fonda would be on hand for this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, where Lily Tomlin is set to receive a lifetime achievement award. After all, both are nominated for their work in Grace And Frankie. But the SAGs aren’t going to pass up on the potential for a full-scale 9 To 5 reunion. The show’s executive producer announced today that Fonda will present Tomlin with her big honor alongside Dolly Parton, who hopefully will just do her tribute as a musical number. Even if we don’t get a performance of the theme song from the 1980 film, Violet, Judy, and Doralee will be together once again right when we could use some badass ladies taking on sexist jerks.

The SAG Awards are set to take place January 29. No word on whether Dabney Coleman is also expected to attend, but if ...

Rules Don’T Apply – Review

Rules Don’T Apply opens as a boy-meets-girl tale set in classic Hollywood, an introduction suggesting a light-hearted romance, maybe even romantic comedy, which is how the film is being promoted. And Rules Don’T Apply is that boy-meets-girl tale at first, until Howard Hughes shows up, played by writer/director Warren Beatty. Then the story takes a darker turn and switches from Hollywood romance with contemporary Woody Allen flavor to a Howard Hughes biopic. It is as if Beatty the actor hijacks Beatty the director’s film.

Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins), a small-town beauty queen raised with a strong Baptist faith, arrives in Hollywood with a movie contract from Howard Hughes in hand and her mother (Annette Bening) in tow.

Warren Beatty Takes Flight in Final ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Trailer

Warren Beatty Takes Flight in Final ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Trailer
Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes character is seriously smitten with Lily Collins in Fox’s final trailer for the comedy-drama “Rules Don’t Apply.”

Collins portrays a spunky actress in 1958 Hollywood who tells Hughes that she’s Ok with his multiple eccentricities — such as an affection for banana nut ice cream and keeping more than a dozen actresses under contract. “You’re not crazy; you’re an exception,” she explains.

“You make an old guy courageous,” Hughes says in response before taking off on his first flight in more than a decade. The final scene in the clip shows one of the plane’s engines stalling.

“This is Frank’s first plane ride,” Beatty says of Alden Ehrenreich’s character. “I want to make it memorable.”

The trailer begins with a flummoxed Alec Baldwin explaining over the phone, “Howard, I’m finding it very hard to run your companies without ever having seen you.

Rules Don't Apply Trailer: Warren Beatty and The New Han Solo Explore 1950s Hollywood

Here's the final trailer for Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply, the Howard Hughes movie he's been trying to make for a staggering forty years. Beatty plays the eccentric Hughes in the film, while Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror) plays an up-and-coming actress who begins a love affair with one of Hughes' drivers, played by Alden Ehrenreich (the upcoming Han Solo spin-off).

This trailer is sort of all over the place. There are stretches where it appears to be a straightforward comedy, but there are also a few moments where it feels as if there's maybe something a bit more sinister going on. Is Hughes going to try to make a move on the young actress? Is this love story going to turn into a weird love triangle? I'm sure if it was just a lighthearted comedy, Beatty wouldn't have had to spend forty years trying to get it made, so
