Set Video of Jim Carrey in ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’

29 December 2010 11:37 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I’m not quite sure on why actor Jim Carrey was stretching his face in front of his co-star Ophelia Lovibond on the set of “Mr. Popper’s Penguins.” The production is currently being filmed on the streets of New York. The story is about Popper, an attorney who inherited six penguins. He transformed his apartment into a winter wonderland, and then his professional side starts to unravel. It is based on a popular children’s book written by Richard and Florence Atwater. The film is directed by Mark Waters and also starring Carla Gugino, Philip Baker Hall and Angela Lansbury. It is scheduled to be in theaters on August 12, 2011. So check out the video below of Carrey’s facial silliness. Source: Youtube »

DVD Playhouse December 2010

By

Allen Gardner

America Lost And Found: The Bbs Story (Criterion) Perhaps the best DVD box set released this year, this ultimate cinefile stocking stuffer offered up by Criterion, the Rolls-Royce of home video labels, features seven seminal works from the late ‘60s-early ‘70s that were brought to life by cutting edge producers Bert Schneider, Steve Blauner and director/producer Bob Rafelson, the principals of Bbs Productions. In chronological order: Head (1968) star the Monkees, the manufactured (by Rafelson, et al), American answer to the Beatles who, like it or not, did make an impact on popular culture, particularly in this utterly surreal piece of cinematic anarchy (co-written by Jack Nicholson, who has a cameo), which was largely dismissed upon its initial release, but is now regarded as a counterculture classic. Easy Rider (1969) is arguably regarded as the seminal ‘60s picture, about two hippie drug dealers (director Dennis Hopper »

Carrey Chats It Up With His 'Penguins' In Several New Images

17 December 2010 10:18 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Normally you don't see Jim Carrey chatting it up with a penguin, but this is a different case since he is in the middle of filming his lead role in the Mark Waters film "Mr. Popper's Penguins." In the film he plays Mr. Popper, a businessman who begins to change after he inherits six penguins, transforming his apartment into a winter wonderland as his professional side starts to unravel. Does anybody else wonder why the hell he's randomly kicking a soccer ball? For some reason I'm under the impression that it is one of the penguins? Yes, I have a strange imagination."Mr. Popper's Penguins" is based off the children's novel written by Richard Atwater, penned for the big screen by Sean Anders, Jared Stern and John Morris. The cast for the new comedy includes Jim Carrey, Carla Gugino, Angela Lansbury, Kelli Barrett and Madeline Carroll.If you want to »

DVD Review: Disney Releases Trio of Informative Documentaries

13 December 2010 2:43 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Walt Disney Home Video isn’t all about “Hannah Montana” or “Toy Story 3.” At the end of last month, they released a trio of informative documentaries about the fascinating history of their own company. None of the three are must-see viewing, but they do combine to offer a glimpse at the incredibly legacy of one of the most important American companies in history.

“The Boys”

The Boys

You may not know the names Robert and Richard Sherman but you absolutely know their work. The Sherman Brothers, the subject (and fathers) of Jeffrey C. Sherman & Gregory V. Sherman’s documentary “The Boys,” not only wrote some of the most memorable Disney songs of all time but simply wrote more movie songs than any other pair of songwriters in film history.

The brothers became legends after joining Walt Disney in 1961, as his company was about to begin a string of belove musicals. »

The Missing Film by Matt Stone and Trey Parker

12 December 2010 9:52 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When Edgar Bronfman Jr gained ownership of Universal Studios he got into some odd marketing campaign practices. One of which is this rare, employee orientation video, that enlightened people about how things were going to change under new management.

Created in 1995 by Matt Stone and Trey Parker and commissioned by comedic filmmaker David Zucker, Your Studio and You was to be played at a party Seagram threw for its employees acquired as a result of its Universal Studios take-over. It parodies the style of 1950s educational films such as Duck and Cover, while poking fun at Universal and its talent. Edgar Bronfman Jr didn’t like it, so they scrapped it but the film is notable in that it was Stone and Parker’s first Hollywood gig. The film is also notable for its use of a number of celebrity actors, musicians, writers, producers, and directors in the Universal family, »

Oprah Winfrey received an award at the 33rd Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday night, December 5. The chat show host was one of five celebrities, along with Paul McCartney, country singer Merle Haggard, Broadway composer Jerry Herman and dancer Bill T. Jones, honored at the event held at the White House in Washington DC.

Oprah, who was accompanied by her long-term partner Stedman Graham, and Paul held hands on stage as U.S. President Barack Obama addressed the crowd, saying the recipients had "given the nation the extraordinary gift of the arts".

He added, "Although the honorees on this stage each possess a staggering amount of talent, the truth is, they aren't being recognized tonight simply because of their careers as great lyricists or songwriters or dancers or entertainers."

"Instead, they're being honored for their unique ability to bring us closer together and to capture something larger about who we are - not just as Americans, »

Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 Blu-ray Review

6 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Disney’s Fantasia is a classic film and an oddity in popular cinema. A comeback vehicle for Disney’s most famous creation, the image of Mickey clad in the robes of a sorcerer whizzing through a castle followed by a hurricane of brooms is so well known now that a single frame from the film will cause most people to recall its name – Fantasia.

Designed to be an experience rather than a movie Fantasia represents some of the most breathtaking work committed to film, with a vivid and effervescent imagination present in every frame. The new Blu-ray released by Disney in the past few weeks brings this film to a whole new audience and celebrates Disney at his liveliest; both experimental and scintillating Fantasia is unlike any other film of its era and is a joy seventy years on.

Never Stop Upon the Way: A Look Back At “The Company Of Wolves” – Part One

6 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The horror movie, in all its multitude of cinematic guises, has offered up many a piece of friendly advice throughout the years. Whether it’s a deranged old man warning a bunch of witless teenagers to skip this year’s camping vacation, an urban legend warning the curious amongst us all to avoid speaking a certain name out loud five times whilst staring into a mirror or a pub full of especially suspicious punters suggesting we all just “stick to the roads” and “keep clear of the moors” as many an important life lesson has been learnt from the silver screen as from our dear and loving parents.

And so, for an overly imaginative teenager of the Nineteen Eighties,  it’s understandable that a great deal of curiosity was to be aroused when Angela Lansbury kindly warned us all to “never stray from the path, never eat a windfall apple »

Alan Menken discusses 'Tangled' and the past, present, and future of the animated musical

24 November 2010 7:05 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Alan Menken has won more Oscars — eight! — than anybody else alive. And no wonder. When you think of the smash hits that revived Walt Disney Animation, starting with The Little Mermaid in 1989 and continuing with Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, it’s impossible to separate the movies from the music. “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” “Be Our Guest,” “Friend Like Me,” “A Whole New World” — they’re the stuff high school glee clubs are made of. Menken, with lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, gave us all of these ear confections, winning over audiences and the Academy in the process. »

With filming set to begin in March, Katherine Heigl has withdrawn from starring in the romantic drama, Adaline, according to Deadline. Heigl had been attached to the project as an actor and producer.

Andy Tennant (The Bounty Hunter, Fool's Gold) is directing the film which will be moving forward without Heigl. Adaline follows a woman who can no longer age after a freak accident freezes her in her 20s. Angela Lansbury just signed on to play her daughter.

Katherine Heigl says “Adios” to “Adaline”

16 November 2010 6:52 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: An interesting move on Andy Tennant’s “Adaline.” Late last night, reps confirmed that Katherine Heigl has bowed out of the production, and that Tennant will recast the lead.

The story follows a woman stuck in her 20s after a lightning strike prevents her from aging. Angela Lansbury recently signed on to the project as Heigl’s daughter. Producers were seeking a male lead to balance this feminine “Benjamin Button.”

And the search will go on. Reports suggest that Heigl, who just adopted her own child, wasn’t ready to go back to work. But producers say they will go on with the show.

“We were scheduled to shoot mid-March and we hope to achieve that,” said producer Gary Lucchesi. “We are great fans of [Heigl] and if this is what she has to do, we respect that.”

More on “Adaline,” including casting news, as it develops. »

Katherine Heigl Drops Out Of Adaline

16 November 2010 6:41 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Katherine Heigl (Killers) has left Lakeshore Entertainment’s Adaline in order to spend more time with her adopted daughter.

Word is there was some acrimony involved, however both camps continue to deny this.

Lakeshore Entertainment partner Gary Lucchesi said of the situation:

“She has made two movies with us and we certainly support her decision [...] We were scheduled to shoot mid-March and we hope to achieve that. We are great fans of hers and if this is what she has to do, we respect that.”

Adaline centers on a woman who should have been killed in a car accident, but was resuscitated by a simultaneous lightning strike that physiologically locked her in her late 20s.

Andy Tennant (The Bounty Hunter) is attached to direct, while Angela Lansbury recently signed on to play the lead characters daughter.

Katherine Heigl Fired From Adaline?

15 November 2010 5:03 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Go ahead and mark this down as another reason Katherine Heigl sucks. The overly opinionated drama queen who once released a statement taking herself out of Emmy contention because she wasn.t given the material to work with on Grey.s Anatomy has pulled out of her upcoming film Adaline. The news comes just days after the producers announced Angela Lansbury had been cast to play opposite Heigl. Am I missing something here? Angela Lansbury is a beloved icon. How the hell does any self-respecting actress pass up a chance to work with her? Well, maybe it wasn.t exactly her choice. According to Deadline, rumor has it Heigl was fired from the project, but since the story first leaked, both Heigl and the production company have denied she was given the boot. Apparently, she.s just excited about being a new mother. Was she not excited about that a »
