John Oliver Showcases 'Last Week Tonight's Absurd Unused Graphics

26 May 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver was off this Memorial Day Weekend, but, like a fourth hot dog eaten long after the BBQ has ended, the show satiated fans' cravings with a bonus web clip featuring selections from its trove of unused graphics.

While striking images, such as Paul Giamatti dressed as a mango, have appeared on Last Week Tonight, Oliver showcased a slew of nixed graphics without noting their accompanying jokes. To start, he trotted out a parade of arbitrary animal images such as a panda king, a blind »

Cannes: Harvey Weinstein Vows Jake Gyllenhaal Will Get Oscar Nom for ‘Southpaw’

14 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Weinstein Co.’s Cannes presentation is always an early launching pad for fall awards season. But on Thursday afternoon at the Majestic Hotel, Harvey Weinstein actually started handicapping the 2016 Oscars race from the South of France.

Joined by Jake Gyllenhaal onstage, Weinstein said it was an outrage that the star was snubbed for his performance in “Nightcrawler,” which was released by Open Road Films last fall. “We’ll get revenge,” Weinstein said. “This transformation in ‘Southpaw’ is amazing,” Weinstein added about the upcoming summer movie directed by Antoine Fuqua, where Gyllenhaal plays a professional boxer. Weinstein revealed that “Southpaw” had been selected for Cannes, but it couldn’t play in competition because Gyllenhaal is a member of the jury.

COO David Glasser opened the event by telling the international crowd that 2015 would be a strong year for TWC. After a series of clips premiered, Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller (“Adam Jones »

7 May 2015 2:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tim Burton ended up in A&E on Monday (May 4) after sustaining an injury on the set of his latest film.

The director recently began filming Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children in Blackpool with the likes of Eva Green, Samuel L Jackson and Judi Dench.

A spokesperson for Burton told Metro that the filmmaker picked up minor injuries which required medical attention, but did not sustain any breakages. Further details of the incident have not been made public.

The filmmaker's assistant reportedly asked the hospital to corner off a private area for him as he waited to be seen by medical staff.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children stars Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game) as 16-year-old Jacob Portman, who discovers a school for supernaturally gifted children.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which is being adapted for the screen by Kingsman: The Secret Service's Jane Goldman, opens on March »

Thursday’s best TV

6 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

There is live coverage of the election on BBC1, ITV and Sky News, while Channel 4 offers an Alternative Election Night with David Mitchell and Jeremy Paxman, and Dave goes on the campaign trail with Al Murray to follow his progress running against Ukip’s Nigel Farage. Meanwhile, a live broadcast from the Donmar theatre offers a fictional version of events, The Vote, starring Judi Dench

The indefatigable consumer crusaders launch a new series with a special episode celebrating 30 years of vengeance upon cowboy builders, rogue retailers, miscreant mechanics and other ne’er-do-well tradesfolk. A lengthy cast of current and former hosts will offer their reflections, among them John Stapleton, Nicky Campbell, Alice Beer and Julia Bradbury. Narrated by Nigel Havers, who is a more pertinent choice than might be instantly apparent: he wrote to the programme about his landlord in 2013. Andrew Mueller

The Vote review – James Graham's all-star election-night farce

6 May 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Donmar Warehouse, London

Judi Dench, a wonderfully twitchy Mark Gatiss, Catherine Tate and other famous faces make appearances at the polling station in Graham’s entertaining ballot-box drama

Few plays are more topical than The Vote. Conceived by James Graham and Josie Rourke for both theatre and television – where it is broadcast on election night on More4 at 8.25pm – it deals with the frantic last 90 minutes in a polling station in a key London marginal. As written by Graham, it is a buoyant farce that testifies to the durable eccentricity of the British voting system and also charts the potential for disaster.

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

BAFTA TV Awards 2015: Jeff Pope talks Cilla, success and his future endeavours

5 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Philomena, Mrs Biggs, The Widower and most recently Cilla - Jeff Pope has made a career out of plowing real-life stories to produce drama on both the big and small screen; and it's paid off, with the writer winning two BAFTAs and an Academy Award.

His latest accolade is a BAFTA TV Special Award - an honour presented in recognition of an outstanding creative contribution to television, with previous recipients including TV exec Jane Tranter, director Paul Greengrass and dramatist Alan Clarke.

Pope started his career in journalism - working as a reporter and researcher - and says the skills he learned have kept him "in good stead" throughout his career as a screenwriter.

"It was dealing with stories - things that had happened, facts," he explains. "It's getting the material and shaping it."

Pope also credits his journalistic roots with inspiring his passion for 'true to life' drama - series, »

Time Machine: Paltrow Silvery Oscar Dress at 83rd Academy Awards

1 May 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

Are you ready for Part 2? More Gladiators of the '90s: Then and now

1 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We certainly felt the power of 10 former Gladiators yesterday, as we took a look at what some of the stars went on to after the success of ITV's '90s hit.

We were bowled over to discover that Blaze (Eunice Huthart) is a stunt double to A-listers and godmother to Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh, and that Rhino (Mark Smith) went on to star in Hollywood films including Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning drama Argo.

But whatever happened to the villainous Wolf or the infamous Shadow, who was dramatically sacked from the series? We haven't found many current pictures of this lot, but here's a little bit about what 9 more of our favourite former Gladiators got up to after their time on the show:

'The Last Witch Hunter' Trailer: Vin Diesel Trades Furious Cars For Flaming Swords

30 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Vin Diesel is a huge nerd. You may not be able to tell that based purely on the Fast & Furious franchise, but Diesel's got some serious geek credentials. He founded a video game company just to make games for his Pitch Black movies, and he not only grew up playing Dungeons & Dragons, but he still does as an adult, and better yet -- he taught Judi Dench how to play while they were filming The Chronicles of Riddick.   So don't be so shocked to see the muscle car icon starring in a fantasy movie like The Last Witch Hunter, which has just revealed its first teaser trailer. The teaser doesn't dole out a whole ton of plot specifics, but as you can probably guess from the title, if you dabble in the dark arts, Vin Diesel is  going to chop your...
