Watch Terry Crews Punch Out Mike Tyson on 'Lip Sync Battle'

24 April 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On paper, a battle between former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson and muscle factory/actor Terry Crews would be a title bout on the level of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. However, instead of stepping into the ring, the two behemoths had a showdown Thursday night in a much-friendlier arena: Lip Sync Battle. In the opening round, Iron Mike busted out with the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction," while the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor countered with Run-d.M.C.'s "Sucker MCs."

While Tyson was likely the crowd favorite going in – the fleet-footed boxer does an admirable impersonation »

Alex Gibney Wins a Peabody for His James Brown Documentary

24 April 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's astonishing how any filmmaker can keep up the pace that Alex Gibney does while maintaining such consistent quality standards. Gibney has had three films premiere on HBO in less than a year: four-hour biodoc "Sinatra: All or Nothing At All" and Scientology expose "Going Clear" --which has generated new scrutiny of the tax-exempt empire founded by L. Ron Hubbard--and last Fall's "Mr Dynamite: The Rise and Fall of James Brown," which may be the best of the lot. Read: Why Mick Jagger & Alex Gibney's 'Rise of James Brown' is a Musical' The film, which tells the James Brown story from his rural Southern childhood and his musical ascension to his civil rights impact, has just won the hard-working director a 74th Peabody Entertainment Award.

The Kloons Enlist Keith Richards, Mick Jagger For Rolling Stones Edition Of ‘Sisters’

16 April 2015 4:04 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

This summer, The Rolling Stones are going on tour, and for some promotion help, they have turn to a YouTube channel that likes to emulate old ladies. The Kloons have released a new episode of their web series Sisters, and both Keith Richards and Mick Jagger make voice cameos.

In Sisters, Kloons members Mitch Lewis and Nik Kazoura reenact conversations between Nik's mom and his aunt. The series, which first debuted in June 2014, has spanned six episodes and received millions of views on The Kloons' YouTube channel. As Lewis explained in an email to Tubefilter, the Stones' touring company saw Sisters last fall and showed it to Richards and Jagger, who "really liked it" and agreed to participate.

Thus, a collaboration was born. In the latest episode of Sisters, the conversation tends to wander back toward The Rolling Stones, before Richards and Jagger deliver the punchline by dubbing over the »

15 April 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity Studios is in talks with Jason Sudeikis to star in its reboot of “Fletch.”

Relativity and Boies/Schiller Film Group have closed a deal for movie rights to “Fletch,” based on the Gregory Mcdonald novels. The books center on newspaper reporter Irwin Maurice Fletcher, who prefers the nickname “Fletch” and has to deal with drama surrounding his two ex-wives.

Producers are Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, Boies/Schiller president Zach Schiller, David List on behalf of the Mcdonald estate and John Rickard.

Relativity and Boies/Schiller are currently meeting with writers for the project, expected to return to the beginning of the Fletch stories, as McDonald did in his prequel “Fletch Won.”

A “Fletch” reboot has been in the works at several other studios. Warner Bros. began developing a “Fletch” movie in 2011 and and set up the project with Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Michael Sugar.

Kurt Cobain filmmaker: Jared Leto could play the Nirvana frontman

10 April 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Montage of Heck director Brett Morgen has said that Jared Leto could play Kurt Cobain in a biopic about the singer.

However, the filmmaker added to Digital Spy that he was not sure if anyone should make a dramatised version of the late Nirvana frontman's life.

"Jared Leto - he did an audition for it years ago too," said Morgan, referencing Leto's 2011 performance video where he sings Nirvana track 'Pennyroyal Tea'.

"I never watched his audition, he might be too old right now, but he's a musician who I think looks kind of... I think I would buy him as Kurt."

He added: "But I don't think anybody should play Kurt. I don't think there should ever be a fiction film of Kurt.

"Why? What's the point? You have Montage of Heck. Why would you need to dramatise it?

"Who knows? I felt the same way about making a documentary »

“Brown Sugar” Is a Dirty Song About Slavery and Sex, and I Love It

3 April 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Rolling Stones debuted “Brown Sugar” at Altamont in 1969. It’s the first track and lead single off the 1971 album Sticky Fingers. This week, the band announced a new 15-date tour to coincide with a deluxe reissue this May. Right now, thousands of people are preparing to dance while jubilantly singing about slavery, heroine, cunnilingus, and rape. “Brown Sugar” is gross, sexist, and stunningly offensive toward black women. Some of the lyrics (Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields / Sold in the market down in New Orleans / Scarred old slaver knows he's doing alright / Hear him with the women just around midnight) are so bad that Mick Jagger changes them during shows. It’s not the first time he’s censored the song. It was originally titled “Black Pussy.” Jagger, during a rare moment of clearheadedness in 1969, decided that was too “nitty-gritty” and nixed it.

Listen: Massive 172-Track Playlist From All Of Wes Anderson's Soundtracks Through 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

2 April 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Rivaling Martin Scorsese at his height and his peer Quentin TarantinoWes Anderson’s visual aesthetic has been inseparable from the musical landscapes that he and music supervisor Randall Poster has assembled for his films. For Anderson obsessives and casual fans alike, Open Culture has found an exhaustive Spotify playlist that proves the Texas-born filmmaker’s musical taste is just as enjoyable separated from his films. This playlist encompasses 172 tracks, runs for seven hours and covers everything from the music used in the black-and-white “Bottle Rocket” short and its feature-length adaptation to last year’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” The playlist showcases the wide range of music used in Anderson’s films and traverses far beyond tweeness and the British Invasion music which mark his films. Sure, there’s still music from The Kinks, The Rolling Stones and the like, but there’s also jazz music beyond »

How 'Mad Men' marked the end of one revolution and the start of another

2 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are the 1960s, and then there is "the Sixties," and they only overlap to a degree. Popular culture and popular history have turned the Sixties in America into a dreamscape of mop-topped British invaders, painted hippies, an escalating war in Vietnam, a moon landing, and massive social unrest. But before the rise of the flower children, there were men in suits and short haircuts, women in conservative dresses, and chaste movie musicals dominating at the box office. And it's not like the counterculture obliterated the culture that had already existed. The psychedelic-inflected comedy of "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" was the highest rated show of the 1968-69 season, but the top 10 also included "Gomer Pyle," "Bonanza," "Mayberry Rfd," "Family Affair," "Gunsmoke," "The Dean Martin Show," "Here's Lucy" and "The Beverly Hillbillies." In 1969, the same year that The Beatles released "Abbey Road" and The Rolling Stones presented "Let It Bleed," aging Rat Pack »

The Tami Show – The DVD Review

29 March 2015 7:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The recent passing of Lesley Gore was not noted on We Are Movie Geeks, I’d like to correct that and as a tribute to her review one of the best concerts ever captured on film (actually on video but I’ll get to that soon.)

Born Lesley Sue Goldstein in New York City on May 2nd 1946 Lesley Gore passed on February 16, this year. She never tried her hand at acting (to my knowledge) yet she appeared in several films and many television shows singing one of or more of her considerable string of hits in a very strong voice, for such a little lady.

It’s My Party is probably her most famous and well remembered song but Judy’s Turn To Cry, Maybe I Know, Sunshine Lollipops, You Don’t Own Me and several other songs charted during her long career. She never resented being consigned to the »

Romney eschewed his oft-criticized robotic nature with a charismatic appearance Wednesday night on The Tonight Show.

Why Miles Teller just wants to be eye candy in a female-driven film

19 March 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin, Texas -- Maybe for the first time in his entertainment career, Miles Teller knows much of what he's "doing" for the next four or so years. He just boarded bank robber flick “Life and Times of the Stopwatch Gang" as producer and lead. Fresh off of Oscar season with "Whiplash," the 28-year-old actor headed right into promotions for "The Divergent Series: Insurgent," out tomorrow (March 20), the second movie in a four-film adaptation. His turn as Mister Fantastic in "The Fantastic Four" films will take him on a two-movie ride, at least. "Bleed for This" -- which will feature Teller portraying boxer Vinny Panzienza -- is out later this year, "Arms and the Dudes" is due 2016 and there are a few other flicks in the development hopper. Even for a schedule so busy, Teller looked at least like he was trying to relax, sinking into a wicker patio chair in »
