Clip and images from season 3 of All Hail King Julien

15 June 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With season three of DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien set to premiere on Netflix this Friday (June 17th), we’ve got a batch of images from the show, along with a clip that sees Princess Julienne (Angelica Huston) and Prince Barty (John Michael Higgins), King Julien’s dramatic and needy parents, arriving for unannounced for a royal visit. Check them out here…

This season, alongside Danny Jacobs’ Emmy®-winning comedic work as King Julien, All Hail King Julien has attracted accomplished talent with A-level guest stars including Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family, The Royal Tenenbaums), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Arrested Development), and John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect, Yes Man).

You might be familiar with the Emmy®-winning show, but did you know that All Hail King Julien isn’t just a tropical adventure for children? In fact, the show has become a mecca of pop culture phenomena and not-so-subtle adult humor, bringing the jungle of Madagascar closer to modern society than you might think. With skewering parallels to our addictive consumption of coffee and ridiculous “high fashion” trends, biting representations of class and beauty standards, and emotional characters that challenge stereotypical gender roles, All Hail King Julien produces witty observations that are meant for modern-day thinkers of all ages.

All Hail King Julien season 3 lands on Netflix on Friday, June 17th.

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After five nominations for playing Sheila Jackson on “Shameless,” Joan Cusack finally took home the guest actress prize last year. And just in time — she didn’t appear in the show’s most recent season.

That opens the cateogry to a whole new winner, and it might just be someone who will be doubling up on noms this year. Ellen Burstyn [“Mom”] is also a potential nominee for her work on the drama “House of Cards,” as is Carrie Fisher [“Catastrophe”] for “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Tovah Feldshuh stole the show with her “Where’s the Bathroom” number in “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” but could also score a nod on the drama side for her guest work on ‘The Walking Dead.”

Natasha Lyonne [“Portlandia”] did standout work on “Orange Is the New Black,” where her character is sorely missed. Cynthia Nixon [“Broad City”] and Judy Greer [“Mom”] are other actresses pulling double duty on the comedy and drama sides. »

Robert Altman's murder tale reeks of insider access and Hollywood hipster Bs; its main claim to greatness is its fifty-plus star cameos. It may no longer seem as smart as it looked in 1992, but they don't make 'em any slicker than this.

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Robert Altman's filmography is undergoing what looks like a full retrospective through Criterion; even the 1975 title Nashville came out not long ago. This very successful later picture marks a revitalization of the director's career. It's sort of a Kafkaesque spin on Hail, »

Caitlyn Jenner will appear on the third season of Amazon’s “Transparent,” according to the show’s creator Jill Soloway.

Speaking in an interview at the GLAAD Media Awards this weekend, Soloway said getting Jenner to come on the series is a “dream come true.”

“We are all part of the same community. A lot of the transwomen who work on our show are also in her show, ‘I Am Cait,'” Soloway said to the Associated Press at the award show. “Lots of crossover. Lots of friends.”

I Am Cait,” Jenner’s docuseries on E!, features cast member Zackary Drucker who also serves as a producer on “Transparent.”

SXSW Film Review: ‘The Master Cleanse’

17 March 2016 10:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The idea that the deepest horrors come from within is treated quite literally in “The Master Cleanse,” a curious semi-supernatural concoction that splits the difference between a self-help-therapy satire and an early-Cronenberg creature feature. Featuring a fine cast led by Johnny Galecki, playing a young sad sack who signs up for a three-day juice fast with some decidedly unexpected side effects, writer-director Bobby Miller’s beguiling debut feature proceeds with calm, deliberate steps down its particular rabbit hole. If the result feels a bit underpowered, narrative-wise, with modest commercial prospects at best, it nevertheless touches a chord of bittersweet feeling that a more genre-oriented thriller approach might not have managed.

Recently jilted at the altar, Paul (Galecki) seems destined to drift and wander through life until he sees a TV commercial advertising a spiritual retreat in the mountains and a promise of complete renewal, complete with a handy website (letsgetpure. »

'Pretty in Pink': 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the John Hughes Classic

26 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Thirty years have passed since the release of "Pretty in Pink" (on February 28, 1986), and yet we're still bewildered by the teen romance's climax.

Maybe we need to think of the John Hughes-scripted film as Gen X's own "Casablanca." The ending makes more sense if you think of Duckie (Jon Cryer) as Humphrey Bogart, letting the woman he loves (Molly Ringwald's Andie) go off with the dull-but-decent guy (Andrew McCarthy's Blane) because he's finally admitted to himself that he's a chivalrous romantic who values her happiness above his own. Yeah, it's a stretch, but it's just one of many interpretations to spin out of this Hughes classic.

In honor of the film turning the big three-0, here are 15 surprising facts about the best movie ever named after a Psychedelic Furs song.

1. Hughes wrote the role of Andie Walsh for Ringwald, but even though she'd starred in his »

Pretty in Pink isn't just a good '80s movie. It isn't just a good teen movie. And it isn't just a good romantic movie. It's just a good movie, period. The John Hughes classic first hit theaters on Feb. 28, 1986, and it turns 30 years old this weekend. The film featured Molly Ringwald as Andie, a high school student whose style belies her working class roots. She's captured the eye of seemingly every guy in school - among them, preppy dreamboat Blane (Andrew McCarthy) and her little hipster buddy, Duckie (Jon Cryer).

‘The Witch’ Director Robert Eggers on the History of Witchcraft and His Cinematic Influences

18 February 2016 11:01 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As a child, Robert Eggers was obsessed with witches and mythical creatures, while other children dreamed of Disneyland, Eggers’ dream vacation probably looked more like something out of Häxan. It makes sense then, that he would grow up to become a sorcerer of sorts, at least one could call him that based on the enthralling qualities of his debut feature The Witch, an otherworldly folk tale set in seventeenth century New England which deals with how a Puritan family chooses to face the presence of the occult. Or at least, what they think are the dark forces that might have turned the eldest daughter, Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy) into a witch.

Not one to place judgment on his own characters, Eggers invites the audience to try and uncover the mysteries along with the family. We aren’t allowed to feel smarter than the characters, just because we’re “modern,” instead he »

Ambi Distribution commences talks at Efm this week on the animation Bilal from Barajoun Entertainment, the Dubai-based animation and effects house with whom Ambi Group has unveiled a five-film partnership.

‘The 4%’ Short Films Highlighting Hollywood’s Female Director Gap to Air on Epix

25 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The 4%: Film’s Gender Problem,” a series of short films highlighting the female director gap in Hollywood, will premiere March 8 on pay TV channel Epix in connection with International Women’s Day.

The documentary shorts hail from Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions. The shorts feature a range of film bizzers discussing the role of women in Hollywood. “The 4%” draws on the research of Dr. Stacy Smith, founder and director of the Media, Diversity, and Social Change Initiative at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism.

“The 4%” shorts are directed by Caroline Suh and produced by Erika Frankel. The title refers to Smith’s research documenting that among the top 1,300 highest-grossing films released between 2002 to 2014, only 4.1% of directors were women.

“The series offers an opportunity for a national audience to hear from the entertainment industry directly about the issues women face both as filmmakers and in other creative roles,” Smith said. »
