Watch: First 8 Minutes of Cameron Crowe’s ‘Aloha’

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Say hello to the first eight minutes of “Aloha.”

Sony has released a sneak peek of writer-director Cameron Crowe’s upcoming rom-com, starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams. The opening scene introduces viewers to the the three main characters, who are about to be tangled in a messy love triangle.

Cooper plays a disgraced ex-pilot torn better his long-lost love (McAdams), who’s now married with two kids, and the Air Force watchdog (Stone) assigned to him upon his return to the U.S. Space program in Honolulu.

The film is already being bashed by critics, earning it a putrid 8% on Rotten Tomatoes (based on 50 reviews). “Unbalanced, unwieldy, and at times nearly unintelligible, ‘Aloha’ is unquestionably Cameron Crowe’s worst film,” Variety‘s Andrew Barker wrote in his review.

Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon were initially supposed to star in the project during its nascent stages. “Aloha” is »

Cameron Crowe returns to the big screen with “Aloha”

26 May 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

One of my favorite filmmakers out there is Cameron Crowe, bar none. He’s responsible for some of the most enjoyable and memorable cinema of the past few decades, so whenever a new film of his arrives, it’s something that I look forward to in a big way. As such, this week’s release of Aloha is one that’s been on my movie calendar for a while now. The director is returning to a project that he’d originally intended to be his follow up to Elizabethtown (a film that I unabashedly love, even if I’m in the minority), so it’s clear it means something to him. When I see it later tonight (we’re embargoed on discussing it until later in the week, by the by), hopefully that passion is reflected. The film (once called Deep Tiki and rumored to star Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon »

Anne Meara obituary

Actor and comedian who teamed up with her husband, Jerry Stiller, to form a favourite American entertainment duo

The actor and comedian Anne Meara, who has died aged 85, was famous on television, on the stage and in films more than three decades before her son, Ben Stiller, the actor and director, made a name for himself.

In fact, Meara entertained four generations of TV viewers of programmes ranging from The Ed Sullivan Show in the early 1960s to Sex and the City (2002-04). She was accompanied on screen and off by her husband, Jerry Stiller, to whom she was married for 61 years. As one of the very few male-female comedy teams, Stiller and Meara were on a par with George Burns and Gracie Allen, and Mike Nichols and Elaine May. (Notice the men’s names come first.)

Theater Mania Juliette Binoche to return to the stage with Sophocles' Antigone

Playbill interviews Laura Benanti 

Variety the charming animated fable Song of the Sea takes Best Picture at the Irish Film Awards. Have you seen it yet? It was very nearly my favorite of last year's animated pictures. 

Guardian interviews Vincent Cassell on his disturbing Australian drama Partisan with a look back at his now-classic breakthrough in La Haine (which might get a sequel)

Variety critics hash out the best and worst of Cannes together with the most fascinating split being on Hou Hsiao Hsien's The Assassin which Debruge finds "impenetrable" and for which Chang expresses rapturous love. (Note: they also seem to admire Carol more than love it - which is why I've always been less bullish than most early Oscar prognosticators in assuming AMPAS's future love for it)

Anne Meara, Actress And Comedienne, Dead At Age 85

25 May 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Anne Meara, who along with her husband and partner Jerry Stiller, became a comedy legend, has died at age 85. Meara and Stiller were unlikely candidates for romance in 1950s New York: he was Jewish, she was Catholic. Nevertheless, to the disappointment of both of their families, they married. Like many young couples in show business, they initially struggled to pay the bills. They developed a comedy act that proved to be popular in Gotham night clubs. This eventually caught the eye of Ed Sulllivan, who gave them a coveted slot on his Sunday night variety show. The rest was history. Stiller and Meara became one of the top comedy acts in the country. Their real life marriage lasted 61 years, during which they remained mainstays on the New York social scene. They also continued to perform regularly and even had a popular web-based series. Meara was a familiar face on television and in feature films. »

Anne Meara, a four-time Emmy nominee who made up half of the '60s comedy duo Stiller and Meara, died on Saturday (May 23) at the age of 85. Born in Brooklyn in 1929, Meara married Jerry Stiller in 1954 and they performed together as part of The Compass Players, the Chicago-based improvisational comedy company that would evolve into The Second City.  As Stiller and Meara, the couple turned details from their own relationship into a wildly successful comedy pairing that made them variety show, late night and game show favorites through the '60s and '70s. More than a few of their bits related to his Jewishness and her Irish Catholic upbringing, though she converted to Judaism in 1960. While Meara's 1975 CBS drama "Kate McShane" was short-lived, it earned her the first of her Emmy nominations, followed by nods for "Archie Bunker's Place" and a guest spot on "Homicide: Life on the Street. »
