How David Tennant Escaped Typecasting, From ‘Doctor Who’ to ‘DuckTales’

15 August 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In recent years, David Tennant has proven that he’s much more than just “The Doctor.”

He’s been a detective (“Broadchurch”). A duck (“Duck Tales”). A “dastard” (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” in which he’ll appear for Season 2). And soon, a devil — having just been cast as co-lead character Crowley in Amazon’s limited series adaptation of the apocalyptic fantasy novel “Good Omens.”

Once upon a time an actor like Tennant would have been typecast forever as the time-traveling Doctor of “Doctor Who,” a classic sci-fi hero beloved by many.

14 August 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Starring together in Stephen Frears’ 1988 drama Dangerous Liaisons, John Malkovich and Glenn Close reunite in the upcoming movie The Wilde Wedding.

Here’s a brand new look at the movie.

In The Wilde Wedding, now-retired film star Eve Wilde (Glenn Close) prepares for her wedding to husband number four, renowned English writer Harold Alcott (Patrick Stewart) after a whirlwind courtship.

At her upstate New York home – in the presence of both Wilde’s first husband, celebrated stage actor Laurence Darling (John Malkovich), and their collective families (Minnie Driver, Jack Davenport, Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli, Noah Emmerich, Grace Van Patten) – the long summer weekend offers the opportunity for everyone to get to know each other a bit more intimately.

As sexual sparks begin to fly, there are unforeseen consequences abound.

Directed by Damian Harris, the film will hit theaters September 15th from Vertical Entertainment.

‘The Wilde Wedding’ Trailer: Patrick Stewart Faces Off Against John Malkovich

14 August 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been a bit of a weird year for Patrick Stewart. First, he voices poop in “The Emoji Movie,” and now he has a quite ungodly mane of hair in the upcoming comedy “The Wilde Wedding.” As you might guess from the title, it’s about a wedding that gets wild, in the way they only do at the movies.

Also starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Minnie Driver, Jack Davenport, Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli, Noah Emmerich, and Grace Van Patten, the story follows an aging actress who is getting ready to marry her new beau, but when she invites her ex-husband to the nuptials, things get wacky.

First Trailer for Indie Comedy 'The Wilde Wedding' with Patrick Stewart

11 August 2017 10:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You are so thoughtful - as if you'd have any idea what a 'keeper' was." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for an indie comedy titled The Wilde Wedding, about a wedding that gets a bit crazy (if the title wasn't already an indication of that). The two people getting hitched are played by Glenn Close and Patrick Stewart, a retired film star marrying a renowned English writer. The rest of the "wild" ensemble cast of great actors includes John Malkovich, Minnie Driver, Jack Davenport, Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli, Noah Emmerich, and Grace Van Patten. I'm not sure where this came from, as I've never heard of the film before, but it looks entertaining in an awkward dysfunctional comedy way. There's tons of sexual tension being built up and released in this trailer, so make sure you wear a condom. Have fun. Here's the official trailer for Damian Harris' The Wilde Wedding, »

Patrick Stewart is no longer follically challenged in charmingly funny trailer for The Wilde Wedding

11 August 2017 8:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

A charming smile-inducing trailer for the comedy The Wilde Wedding starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Patrick Stewart with a head full of hair – who even knew that was possible – has arrived.

The trailer focuses on the days leading up to Eve Wilde’s (Glenn Close) fourth marriage to Alcott (Patrick Stewart), who plays a writer who seems to have added some special hair growing fertilizer to his shampoo to produce an almost afro-like head of gray hair. Inviting along her first husband played by John Malkovich, who is partial to a drink or three, the group of family and friends share a few charmingly funny moments together as Eve starts to have second thoughts, thanks to Malkovich, on her pending nuptials.

Vertical Entertainment’s co- president Rich Goldberg has previously stated what a joy it was to have the three stars attached to the production with »

Film adaptation of The Secret will star Katie Holmes

10 August 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Aug 11, 2017

Katie Holmes is thinking good thoughts as she uses her gift to impart the wisdom of The Secret.

Katie Holmes is set to headline a feature film adaptation of hit 2006 book The Secret.  Rhonda Byrne didn’t just write a self-help book series with her works. She created the law of attraction, which breathed new life into the New Age spiritual movement. The Secret spawned the follow-ups The Power in 2009, The Magic in 2010, and Hero in 2013. Byrne aims to bring joy to the world by helping people control the universe with their minds, using the teachings of Madame Blavatsky and Norman Vincent Peale and a little bit of quantum physics.

The Secret will be directed by Andy Tennant, known for romantic comedies like Sweet Home Alabama and Hitch. The adapted screenplay is being written by Bekah Brunstetter, (NBC’s This Is Us), with help from Tennant and »

‘The Exorcist’ Is Set To Scare West End Audiences From This October

9 August 2017 7:14 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Forty-five years after William Peter Blatty’s best-selling novel terrified an entire generation, The Exorcist will be unleashed onto the West End stage for the very first time in a uniquely theatrical experience directed by Sean Mathias and adapted for the stage by John Pielmeier.

The Exorcist will play a strictly limited run at the Phoenix Theatre from 20 October 2017 to 10 March 2018. Tickets will go on general sale at 4pm on Friday 11 August.

Widely considered the scariest movie of all time, the film adaptation of The Exorcist sparked unprecedented worldwide controversy when it was released in cinemas in 1973. Winner of two Academy Awards, William Friedkin’s masterpiece saw audiences petrified to the point of passing out and went on to become one of the top ten highest grossing films of all time.

Golden Globes Chatter Muted as HFPA Hands Out $2.8 Million in Grants

2 August 2017 10:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The pre-show conversation at the Beverly Wilshire Wednesday night centered around awards season, the Golden Globes and the upcoming fall festivals. But all of those topics soon yielded the floor to philanthropy, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. handed out $2.8 million to 55 nonprofit entertainment-related organizations and scholarship programs.

The event was the HFPA’s annual Instillation & Grants Dinner, in which the donations are announced and the org formally presents its new HFPA officers.

Host Chelsea Handler kept things moving at a brisk pace. She vowed that she would be bipartisan in her jokes, but added, “We are here to celebrate three things Donald Trump hates the most: foreigners, the press, and donating money to charity.”

Presenters included Ava DuVernay, Robert Pattinson, Chadwick Boseman, Patrick Stewart, Stan Lee, Bob OdenkirkDustin Hoffman, Mark Hamill, Kathryn Hahn, Kumail Nanjiani, Alison Brie, Chrissy Metz, Elisabeth Moss, Anthony Mackie, Matt Bomer, Armie Hammer, Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, »

10 Reasons Why 2017 Has Been the Best Summer Movie Season of the Century

2 August 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The opening paragraphs of IndieWire’s review of “The Emoji Movie” may have read like a desperate cry for help, but the fact remains that movies are literally a light in the darkness, and that’s never been more true than it was (and continues to be) during the summer of 2017.

While the season tends not to be associated with high art, this hasn’t really been one of those years where the past has all that much bearing on the present. Things don’t make a lot of sense anymore, and that’s proven to be as true for pop culture as it has for every other aspect of our country. Generally speaking, that hasn’t been great news (the world is falling apart, we’re all gonna die, etc.). But when it comes to the multiplexes, people may have been happy to find that down is the new up. »

The Emoji Movie Review

1 August 2017 4:11 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Hannah Woodhead

Generally speaking, most titles at least have some redeeming features if you squint hard enough, or they manage to slip into so-bad-it’s-kind-of-good territory. Yet once in a while, something comes along that’s so ill-conceived, there’s no other phrase for it: The Emoji Movie is just bad.

In your smartphone exists a world called Textopolis (apparently that’s the best they could come up with), where all the emojis live. These emojis have one job and one job alone: portraying the emotion or item that they’re assigned. Our protagonist is a ‘Meh’ emoji called Gene, who is unable to stick to being ‘Meh’, much to his parents’ chagrin. With the help of an obnoxious high-five emoji voiced by James Corden, he sets out to locate a hacker emoji (eh?) who can help him get ‘reprogrammed’.

Straight off the bat, there are striking similarities to Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. »

The Emoji Movie review

1 August 2017 2:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Those symbols on your phone come to life in The Emoji Movie. Here's our review...

There are bad films and then there are terrible films. Terrible films leave the viewer in mental and emotional anguish following a confusing and often offensive couple of hours during which, for some reason, they were unable to leave the cinema or simply hit the stop button on their remote. We’ve all sat through a terrible movie or two (or several) before we start learning how best to avoid them.

Bad films, on the other hand, are only as irksome when it comes to how bored they leave you feeling. Bad films don’t offend or excite - they don’t leave you feeling much of anything. That’s their crime, they fail to move you in any direction and add nothing to your life but time wasted.

The Emoji Movie is one of those bad films, »

10 films to beat the 2017 franchise fatigue

31 July 2017 4:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Aug 1, 2017

Bored with massive films and special effects? Then here are 10 smaller movies well worth your consideration...

It's that time of year when we usually give you a list of films playing in cinemas during August, as the summer blockbuster season winds down, that will help cleanse your palate after all the tentpoles and sequels that have proliferated throughout the year so far. But to be honest, this summer has been so good to us, we're more refreshed than usual.

Even aside from originals like Edgar Wright's Baby Driver and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, this year's blockbusters have been of an unusually high standard. Wonder Woman pulled the Dceu out of its critical nosedive, War For The Planet Of The Apes is a gorgeous and emotional conclusion to the reboot trilogy, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming proved that Marvel's ever expanding continuity is still going strong. »

Unpacking ‘The Emoji Movie’s’ $25 Million Box Office Opening

30 July 2017 2:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What to do with “The Emoji Movie’s” box office debut? Should it get a thumbs up? A thumbs down? Should we simply throw up our hands and leave it alone?

Here are the facts: Sony Animation’s latest opened this weekend in second place at the domestic box office behind “Dunkirk,” and as recently as Saturday was projected to be in the running for first. By the weekend’s end, the animated adventure based on Unicode characters should make $25.7 million, about in line with expectations earlier in the week.

But this is not just any release. This is “The Emoji Movie.” This is the movie that (pardon the crassness) was Sir Patrick Stewart-ed on by critics, eliciting vitriol that sparked a second wave of headlines after the initial reviews that included “The Meanest Lines From ‘The Emoji Movie’ Reviews,” the more promising (?) spin “‘The Emoji Movie’ Lost Its 0% Rotten Tomatoes Rating Thanks to This Positive »

Box Office: ‘Dunkirk’ Beats Out ‘Emoji Movie,’ ‘Atomic Blonde’ to Repeat No. 1

30 July 2017 7:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An unlikely battle emerged at the box office this weekend between “The Emoji Movie” and “Dunkirk.” As of Saturday morning the animated feature and war epic seemed to be in a dead heat. But by Sunday morning, most of the dust had settled, and it appears “Dunkirk” will once again be the weekend’s first place film.

Christopher Nolan’s latest from Warner Bros. over-performed last weekend when it opened to over $50 million, showing that the director, combined with positive critical reception, still has a strong draw — even for a movie lacking movie star power, and at risk of being written off as yet another World War II movie. This time around it looks to take in $28.1 million from 3,748 locations, for a strong hold.

It’s the first time that a movie has been first place two weekends in a row since the same studio’s “Wonder Woman” in early June. Patty Jenkins »

Box Office: ‘Emoji Movie’ Goes to Battle With ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Atomic Blonde’ for Top Spot

28 July 2017 1:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Update, 4:40 p.m. — Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” and animated comedy “The Emoji Movie” are in a battle for the top spot at the domestic box office with “Dunkirk” heading for about $28 million, estimates showed Friday.

Emoji” appeared headed for about $25 million at 4,075 locations. Charlize Theron’s “Atomic Blonde” is performing slightly under expectations and is forecasted to finish in the $18 million to $20 million range at 3,304 sites.

Should Warner Bros.’ “Dunkirk” prevail, it will be the first title to top back-to-back weekends since the studio’s “Wonder Woman” did so on June 9-11. But “The Emoji Movie” is showing decent drawing power with an opening day in the $9 million range, although the core demographic of children plus some rain in the Eastern United States makes predictions problematic.
