Exclusive clip from 'The Hundred-Foot Journey': 'You are trespassing too'

22 July 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What starts with a "Bonjour!" ends with an insult in this brand new clip from DreamWorks' "The Hundred-Foot Journey," exclusive to HitFix. Helen Mirren plays acclaimed restaurant owner Madame Mallory who approaches some new visitors to her tiny French town. As Papa Kadam (Om Puri) and son Hasan (Manish Dayal) poke around an unkempt property to investigate its potential for a restaurant, Mallory gets a bit poke-y, too. A couple civil barbs over trespassing are exchanged, then Papa has a quick lesson for the Madame: just because he inquired about getting a discount at another potential site for his family's Indian eatery "doesn't mean I'm poor. It means I'm thrifty." If the trailer to the flick is any indication, the temperature's only set to rise in this overseas culinary, cultural adventure. "The Hundred-Foot Journey" heads to theaters on Aug. 8, directed by Lasse Hallström and based on the novel of the same same. »

I am fine after surgery - Om Puri

19 July 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

A cancer scare caused by an intimidating white patch in his mouth had all of actor Om Puri's friends and well-wishers worried after the report of the physical irregularity was out. But after a mouth surgery on Wednesday, Omji spoke to this writer from his bed at the Hinduja hospital on Friday afternoon. Sounding hale and hearty he said, "When this white patch was detected in my mouth I was hospitalized and fearing the worst, immediate surgery was performed. Most luckily for me the patch was found to be benign. So there is no threat to my life." Omji has been strictly advised to quit smoking. "After years of inability to kick the habit, I've quit smoking with immediate effect. Nothing is more important than one's health. I've realized this after being in hospital." Om Puri is expected to be discharged from hospital on Saturday. The actor extraordinaire whose »

The 18 Zach Braff–iest Moments in Wish I Was Here

18 July 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Love him or hate him, Zach Braff sure is Zach Braff. His signature directorial style is this specific blend of quirky and schmaltzy, like early Wes Anderson meets late Lasse Hallstrom. Then there are the heavy-handed decisions — in Garden State, the shirt that matched the wallpaper, Natalie Portman's weird dance that no one has ever done in human history, or the characters screaming into the "infinite abyss" while "The Only Living Boy in New York" is playing — that make some people want to die and some people fall in love. Where you land comes down to taste, but personally, I'm onboard — so as a celebration, here is a countdown of the 18 Zach Braff–iest moments in Wish I Was Here, ranked by their Zach Braff–iness.

Helen Mirren Delivers the Sass in Our Exclusive 'The Hundred-Foot Journey' Preview (Video)

18 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Helen Mirren wants to give us what we want, and what we want is a Helen Mirren who can deliver one-liners with gusto and give as good as she gets. Which is why she's the perfect Dame (sorry, Judy Dench) to play Madame Mallory, the prim and proper (and stubborn as all get out) proprietor of a Michelin-starred restaurant in the French countryside, in "The Hundred-Foot Journey."

The movie, which has the impressive credentials of being produced by Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg, and directed by Lasse Hallström ("Chocolat"), concerns an Indian family that opens a restaurant directly across from Madame Mallory's very fancy French restaurant, an establishment that draws guests in the form of prime ministers, presidents, and other assorted dignitaries.

In this preview, debuting exclusively on Moviefone, Papa Kadam is very angry with Madame Mallory about her insistence that his son, the very talented Hassan, come work in her kitchen. »

The Locarno Film Festival has announced their lineup for the 67th edition, taking place this August between the 6th and 16th. It speaks for itself, but, um, wow...

"Every film festival, be it small or large, claims to offer, if not an account of the state of things, then an updated map of the art form and the world it seeks to represent. This cartography should show both the major routes and the byways, along with essential places to visit and those that are more unusual. The Festival del film Locarno is no exception to the rule, and I think that looking through the program you will be able to distinguish the route map for this edition." — Carlo Chatrian, Artistic Director

Spielberg & Oprah Talk 'Hundred-Foot Journey' in New Featurette

8 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When the first trailer for Lasse Hallstrom's adaptation of The Hundred-Foot Journey debuted, quite a big deal was made by the fact that the film is produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey. And now the two entertainment powerhouses discuss the charming story of a clash between two different cultures who eventually find a way to co-exist. Helen Mirren plays a stuck up restaurant proprietor who is not too pleased when an Indian establishment opens up across the street. It looks a little cheesy, but it seems to have a lot of heart, and if the story has the approval of Spielberg, then it must have something to it. Here's the new featurette for Lasse Hallstrom's The Hundred-Foot Journey from the film's YouTube: The Hundred-Foot Journey is directed by Lasse Hallström (What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Cider House Rules, Safe Haven), from a screenplay by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, »

The Hundred-foot Journey Featurette: Producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey Discuss Fusing Two Opposite Cultures

7 July 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks has released a new The Hundred-Foot Journey featurette for director Lasse Hallström’s (Chocolat) adaptation of the Richard C. Morais novel of the same name.  The story centers the rivalry between an Indian restaurant that is 100 feet away from a three-Michelin-star restaurant in France, with the eccentric French chef (Helen Mirren) reluctantly forming a bond with the young Indian boy (Manish Dayal) whose family owns the quaint Indian restaurant.  Based on the trailer, the pic looks to be a nice, international story in the vein of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with a bounty of food porn to boot—and I’m perfectly fine with that.  Not everything needs to be deadly serious or colorfully explosive, and as producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey explain in this featurette, the film also touches on the great gaps that surface between cultures and how there’s more that unites us than divides us. »

Eli Wallach, ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ Star, Dies at 98

24 June 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tony- and Emmy-winning actor Eli Wallach, a major proponent of “the Method” style of acting best known for his starring role in Elia Kazan’s film “Baby Doll” and for his role as villain Tuco in iconic spaghetti Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” died on Tuesday, according to the New York Times. He was 98.

On the bigscreen Wallach had few turns as a leading man, but none was as strong as his first starring role in 1956’s “Baby Doll,” in which he played a leering cotton gin owner intent on seducing the virgin bride (Carroll Baker) of his business rival (Karl Malden). But he appeared in more than 80 films, offering colorful turns in character roles in movies such as “The Magnificent Seven,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” “Nuts,” “Lord Jim,” “The Misfits” and “The Two Jakes.”

Father of the Bride stars then & now: From Steve Martin to Kieran Culkin

16 June 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's currently being reported that Steve Martin will be reprising his role as cynical businessman George Banks in Father of the Bride 3.

Martin is tipped to return alongside Diane Keaton as wife Nina Banks in the comedy, which will see the couple's son Matty revealing his plans to marry the son of a Us Navy Seal.

1991's Father of the Bride was based on the 1950 movie of the same, while 1995's sequel was loosely based on 1951's Father's Little Dividend.

As we anticipate a potential Part III, catch up on the major stars' exploits since - and compare how they looked then and now:

Steve Martin

Steve Martin - already an established Hollywood name before Father of the Bride - plays hapless patriarch George Banks, who suffers a series of ridiculous misfortunes (and a mild breakdown - the too-plentiful pack of hotdogs springs to mind) after his daughter announces that she's getting married. »
