9 October 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

More than four months after sparking nationwide outrage for posing with a replica of President Donald Trump‘s bloodied, decapitated head in her hand, Kathy Griffin has returned to stand-up — wearing none other than a Trump mask.

The 56-year-old comedian — who, in the wake of the scandal, was fired from CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast, which she had co-hosted with Anderson Cooper for 10 years — made her bold return to comedy Sunday night at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, taking the stage wearing a mask of the president’s face, though this one free of blood and gore. »

Rome – The first edition of Egypt’s ambitious El Gouna Film Festival wrapped Friday with psychological thriller “Scary Mother,” by Georgian first-time director Ana Urushadze, taking the Golden Star, the fest’s top feature film competition prize. The prize was awarded by a jury headed by U.S. producer Sarah Johnson (“Birdman”).

Oscar-winning actor-director Forest Whitaker was celebrated with a lifetime achievement award during the closing ceremony in the festival’s open-air auditorium, also attended by Oliver Stone. Both men held master classes.

Besides a trophy, “Scary Mother” (pictured), which is about a 50-year-old housewife struggling to choose between her family life and a passion for writing, scored $50,000 in prize money, to be divided equally between the director and the main producer. The film – a co-production between Georgia’s Studio Artzim and Gemini and Estonia’s Allfilm – also recently won the Sarajevo Film Festival’s top prize, and is Georgia’s selection for the foreign-language Oscar.

Film Review: ‘Blind’

14 July 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 1996 Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore starred in “The Juror,” an uninspired thriller (with the unfortunate ad line “There is no defense”) in which she played a single mom  blackmailed by his Mafia hitman into swaying the jury she’s on, lest he kill her son. Both actors had just passed the crest of their brief big-screen stardom, though that wasn’t necessarily evident at the time, even if “The Juror” certainly didn’t help keep them at the top.

Two decades later, Baldwin is something of an institution — albeit mostly for TV comedy, not a path one would have anticipated back then — while Moore, though she’s worked sporadically, feels like a missing person in any recent pop-culture census. The difference in their career arcs can be attributed to many things, an obvious one being Hollywood’s greater willingness to grant a second act to male stars who’ve aged out of their initial hunkdom, as »

‘Blind’ Review: Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore Star In A Hackneyed Romance That Isn’t Worth Seeing

13 July 2017 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nobody is more virile than a blind man in a bad movie. From Army Ranger Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade in “Scent of a Woman” to Virgil Adamson in “At First Sight,” these characters are cartoons of masculinity, using their dicks like antennae as they help guide the sighted people in their lives towards some kind of personal growth. While blind women are often rendered as pretty, pitiable things in desperate need of assistance (a trope that Charlie Chaplin inadvertently helped cement in “City Lights,” and that Lars von Trier very deliberately weaponized in “Dancer in the Dark”), their male counterparts are seen as horny, feral animals who compensate for their sightlessness with bat-like sonar and a bloodhound’s sense of smell.

And so we end up with movies like Michael Mailer’s divertingly banal “Blind,” in which Alec Baldwin plays a vision-impaired (but hyper-sexual) writer who can tell from halfway »

Demi Moore as Suzanne Dutchman in Michael Mailer's Blind: "It's a film about perception."

Michael Mailer and producer Jennifer Gelfer discuss the selection of Demi Moore's wardrobe with costume designer Evren Catlin (Liz W Garcia's One Percent More Humid starring Juno Temple, Maggie Siff, Julia Garner, Alessandro Nivola), Dylan McDermott's character not covering up a tattoo, what is real and what isn't, and why Blind (which has a screenplay by John Buffalo Mailer) is not Disney or Nicholas Sparks (Message In A Bottle, A Walk To Remember, The Notebook, Nights In Rodanthe, Dear John, The Longest Ride).

Alec Baldwin’s New Movie ‘Blind’ Slammed By Advocacy Group For ‘Treating Disability as a Costume’

7 July 2017 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Since donning that orange wig for his famous “Saturday Night LiveDonald Trump impression, Baldwin has drawn the ire of the highest office in the land. It’s not as easy to slough off criticism from leading disability advocacy group The Ruderman Family Foundation, which railed against Baldwin’s latest movie, titled simply: “Blind.”

In a statement made to the Los Angeles Times, foundation president Jay Ruderman said: “Alec Baldwin in ‘Blind’ is just the latest example of treating disability as a costume. We no longer find it acceptable for white actors to portray black characters. Disability as a costume needs to also become universally unacceptable.” Ruderman called Baldwin’s performance “crip-face,” likening it to white actors wearing blackface.

Girls Trip

As “Wonder Woman” becomes the highest-grossing live action film directed by a woman, July promises to bring even more interesting, powerful women to the big screen — whether they are in front of camera or behind it. July starts with a fascinating documentary from director Lara Stolman. “Swim Team” follows swim athletes on the autism spectrum and explores how the team gives its young men a chance to feel included and in control, sometimes for the first time ever.

The second weekend in July brings a pair of noteworthy women-centric films. Netflix’s “To the Bone” is inspired by writer-director Marti Noxon’s own struggles with anorexia, and charts her unconventional road to recovery. And Shakespeare gets an update from writer Alice Birch in “Lady Macbeth,” whose titular character discovers her own power after engaging in a dangerous affair.

Things get a bit lighter on July 21, with a pair of comedies about the complex ties between women. In Gillian Robespierre’s “Landline” two sisters unexpectedly bond after discovering their father’s affair. “Girls Trip” sees four lifelong friends reconnecting at a rowdy, unforgettable weekend in New Orleans.

The month closes with a female-led action flick, and an urgent documentary sequel. Charlize Theron stars in “Atomic Blonde,” the story of an extremely talented MI6 agent who is sent to deliver a sensitive dossier to the destabilized city of Berlin. “An Inconvenient Sequel,” a follow-up to 2006’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” is a potent reminder of the imminent danger of climate change, greed, and the apathy of those in power. Co-director Bonni Cohen follows Al Gore as he makes climate change’s dangers known to the entire world — and the film is being updated to include the United States’ decision to retreat from the Paris Climate treaty.

Here are all of the women-centric, women-directed, and women-written films debuting in July. All descriptions are from press materials unless otherwise noted.

Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise: Inside the Making of One of Hollywood’s Steamiest Sex Scenes

27 June 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Before fame propelled Brad Pitt above the heights of the Hollywood sign, he was an overly polite, amateur actor who was almost passed over for the role of the seducer-meets-robber J.D. in the 1991 film Thelma and Louise. Now, a new book reveals inside details of his sex scene with Thelma (played by Geena Davis) — a scene so “racy” that it kick-started his reputation as a sex symbol and, if left uncut, would have shot the movie’s rating “past R.”

Demi Moore & Alec Baldwin Fall in Love in Trailer for Romance 'Blind'

6 June 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You must have dinner with me tonight, and I'll take you to Paris." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the official trailer for an indie romantic thriller titled Blind. This is not to be confused with the outstanding Norwegian film Blind, which was one of my favorite films of the year a few years ago. This new Blind film is a romantic thriller set in New York City, from first-time director Michael Mailer. Alec Baldwin stars as a man who has gone blind after a car accident that also killed his wife. He meets a woman at his care center, played by Demi Moore, who falls in love with him. But when her husband, played by Dylan McDermott, arrives fresh from prison, things get a bit dangerous. This seems like a nice romance made cheesy with the violent husband storyline, but perhaps it's an accurate representation of the real world. Take a look below. »

12 New TV Shows We’re Actually Excited About, From ‘Gifted’ to ‘Rise’ (Photos)

18 May 2017 12:16 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“La to Vegas” (Fox) We’re all about to find out just how funny Dylan McDermott — who apparently can can grow a killer mustache — can be. His Captain’s Jokes from the series’ trailer are top-notch in their purposefully hacky delivery — let’s see if the rest of the crew can keep up. “La to Vegas” hails from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, so we know pedigree won’t be the problem if there turns out to be one. Insert your own joke about substituting Dermot Mulroney for Season 2 and not missing a beat. — Tony Maglio “The Orville” (Fox) Look, »
