Who’s still overdue for their first Academy Award nominations/wins?

3 March 2015 1:26 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Last year, I wrote a pair of pieces looking at the folks in Hollywood who were due for their first Oscar nominations or the their first wins. At the most recent Academy Award ceremony, two of those names got moved off of the list, so I wanted to take a look back and see who’s still on those lists and what they might have coming for us this year. I’ll update the lists with some new people next month, but for now…let’s go look at if the Oscars gave us some long overdue citations. If you were paying attention, you definitely noticed two of them. As a quick refresher for you all, here are the ten names that I had down as overdue for their first nods from the Academy: 10. Channing Tatum 9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt 8. Kevin Smith 7. Jennifer Jason Leigh 6. Jeff Daniels 5. Hoyte Van Hoytema 4. Steve Carell »

Dev Patel: 'I've got a crazy work ethic and I'm very tough on myself'

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

Dev Patel has described the pressures of fame.

The 24-year-old first rose to prominence in the gritty Channel 4 series Skins and was propelled to international stardom following the success of his first movie, the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire.

In an interview with Digital Spy, he explained: "It's a lot of hard work. Behind closed doors it's a lot of pressure and more than anything you've got to be sure you're not letting yourself down. I've got a crazy work ethic and I'm very tough on myself. It's difficult. It's a difficult position to be in, in a way. You're trying to tread new waters."

Commenting on the whirlwind that followed the success of Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire, Patel admitted to being overwhelmed at being thrust into the public eye.

"Slumdog was wonderful and it came so quickly for someone who hasn't had any formal training. It kind of thrusts »

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 DVD Set Slays Home Video Sales Charts

25 February 2015 6:58 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s eagerly awaited fourth-season set of hot TV series “Game of Thrones” debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ending Feb. 22, a banner week for new releases in which the top five sellers are all newcomers.

Bowing at No. 2 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart was Universal Pictures’ “Dumb and Dumber To,” the belated sequel to the 1994 slapstick classic that reunites original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and earned a respectable $86.2 million in U.S. theaters.

Sony Pictures’ controversial “The Interview” debuted at No. 3 on both charts, a ranking observers surmise might have been higher had the film not been available earlier via streaming (it became available on Netflix on Jan. 24) and online purchase. The comedy, about two journalists told to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after getting an interview with him, »

Is Jared Leto Channeling Dumb and Dumber at This Year's Oscars? See the Pic!

22 February 2015 6:05 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Major wardrobe drama! Did Jared Leto just steal his look from Harry Dunne? The Dallas Buyers Club actor showed up to the 2015 Oscars sporting a tuxedo that looks eerily similar to that of Jeff Daniels from the classic film Dumb and Dumber.  From the silk lapel down to the powder-blue shade, it's a full on Who Wore It Better moment. This is the actor's first Oscars appearance since his big win last year for his portrayal of Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, but it seems like his suit may have stolen his thunder a bit. Of course, Leto is no stranger to being in the fashion spotlight. He's worn many a sharp suit in his day (including last year's white-tux-and-bowtie number), and his signature »

Review: Woody Allen's "The Purple Rose Of Cairo" (1985) Starring Mia Farrow And Jeff Daniels, Twilight Time Blu-ray Edition

21 February 2015 3:26 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

“A Madcap Manhattan Weekend”

By Raymond Benson

Easily one of Woody Allen’s best films, The Purple Rose of Cairo, released in 1985, is a treat. It’s got laughs and pathos and is an excellent treatise on the conflict between fantasy and reality. Purple Rose represents a period when Allen was at the peak of his powers, when he was considered one of America’s greatest auteurs, and before there was the stigma of scandal hovering over his work. In 1985, Allen could do no wrong, and The Purple Rose of Cairo does everything right.

Allen doesn’t appear in the film. The picture belongs to Mia Farrow, and she delivers one of her best and most poignant performances as Cecilia, a meek and unhappy housewife/waitress in New Jersey during the Depression area. She is married to Monk (Danny Aiello), who is abusive and pays little attention to her needs. »

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Honest Trailer Crushes the Comedy Sequel

18 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I was cautiously optimistic about Dumb and Dumber To. The Farrelly Brothers were due for a hit; they were revisiting the characters that made them famous; and both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were back for the ride. What could possibly go wrong? The answer is “everything,” as is very well explained in the Dumb and Dumber To Honest Trailer. […]

Dumb And Dumber To Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 9:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Either I have entirely too much time on my hands (I don’t), I’m a self-admitted masochist (getting warmer), or Dumb And Dumber To is so horrendously brain-numbing that I couldn’t let a Blu-Ray review opportunity pass me by. My colleague Robert Kojder already wrote a forgiving theatrical review of the appalling comedic atrocity that is Dumb And Dumber To, but I don’t agree that the Farrelly brothers do their most famous property right by way of a repetitive, self-referential sequel. Opinions make the world go ’round, but this is one time I had to make my side heard.

While I can’t exactly call Dumb And Dumber To the Mortdecai of 2014 (because I genuinely laughed, albeit three whole times), this soulless husk of a comedic effort reeks of cash-grab incentives around every previously-explored turn. There are moments where we pity Jim Carrey and *Emmy Winner* Jeff Daniels, »

The rights-holder of Dumb and Dumber To, last year's sequel starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, is the latest to jump aboard the legal stratagem of suing anonymous users of BitTorrent for sharing copyrighted work. At least five lawsuits were filed in Oregon federal court on Thursday with "Does" and their IP addresses listed as defendants. In court papers, the rights-holder says that the film is currently one of the top 10 most downloaded movies though BitTorrent and with over 1,000 IP addresses from Oregon alone.

Blackhat Star John Oritz Signs On For Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs Drama

12 February 2015 8:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off Michael Mann’s cybernetic hacking thriller Blackhat, John Oritz has boarded Danny Boyle’s upcoming Steve Jobs in a supporting role.

According to Deadline, Oritz — whose previous credits include appearances in Silver Linings Playbook and Fast and Furious 6 — will play the part of Joel Pforzheimer, a journalist tasked with interviewing the titular visionary for GQ magazine. No other details of his role nor how prominent it will prove to be were shared at this time.
