20 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Looking back on the enormous success of The Devil Wears Prada, it's hard to imagine its iconic characters being played by anyone other than Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt. But in a new tell-all with Variety for the film's 10th anniversary, the actresses reveal how they all nearly missed out on the project. Streep, who famously played icy fashion editor Miranda Priestly in the film, knew immediately after reading the script that she had a major hit on her hands - but the financial side of the deal wasn't exactly up to snuff.

‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Turns 10: Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt Tell All

23 June 2016 1:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The moment Meryl Streep read the script for “The Devil Wears Prada,” she knew it would be—in her words—“Yuge.” But despite a truckload of awards and a reputation as the greatest actress on the planet, Streep had always been hesitant to negotiate for more pay. Maybe it was the character Miranda Priestly, a fashion magazine editor so powerful she could terrify underlings without even raising her voice, that pushed her to do it. But the Oscar-winning actress felt emboldened. “The offer was to my mind slightly, if not insulting, not perhaps reflective of my actual value to the project,” Streep tells Variety. “There was my ‘goodbye moment,’ and then they doubled the offer. I was 55, and I had just learned, at a very late date, how to deal on my own behalf.”

The Devil Wears Prada” showed Hollywood that it was never wise to underestimate a strong woman’s worth. »

Showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna Brings Logic to ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (Emmy Watch)

17 June 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is an odd TV series. A comedy with dramatic elements, it’s a musical that expresses the feelings of its lead character, Rebecca Bunch (YouTube star Rachel Bloom), via original songs. The ratings aren’t amazing and the show is an Emmy longshot, but people are finding it, and the fans are passionate. It’s unlike anything you’ve seen before; the question is, how many Emmy voters will see it.

At a recent Fyc Emmy event, Bloom bounded out in bra and Spanx to perform an opening number and then returned dressed for an informative Q & A panel. The audience, packed with fans, whooped and hollered; everyone on stage enjoyed playing to the room. That’s the feeling you get from the CW show itself: as hard as it is to pull off, everyone is having a blast.

So how did this crazy show come about? While »

As you have undoubtedly heard since it was announced on the internet about 1,000 different times over the course of about six months (as if each meeting was the official official, 'no really official this time!' news, Nicole Kidman will co-star in Top of the Lake season 2 (with Elisabeth Moss returning to her leading role) . It's her first reunion with her Portrait of a Lady director Jane Campion from back before she was fully Nicole Kidman but basically getting there if you know what I mean.

What we didn't know until now is that she will be sporting Jane Campion's favorite hair color just like Holly Hunter did in Season 1 way back in 2013...

16 June 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Much like Good Kill before it, Gavin Hood served up a pulse-pounding and, crucially, thought-provoking thriller in last year’s Eye in the Sky, placing Helen Mirren in the shoes of a conflicted Colonel who is thrust into a moral conundrum upon overseeing a drone strike in Kenya.

Joined by a stellar supporting cast that boasts Aaron Paul, the late, great Alan RickmanBarkhad AbdiJeremy NorthamIain Glen and Phoebe Fox, Eye in the Sky is part of a growing trend of drone warfare movies in the works, with the Anne Hathaway-fronted Grounded still to come.

But long before that adaptation zooms into theaters, Eye in the Sky will be launching across Blu-ray and DVD on June 28. To celebrate its arrival, We Got This Covered has one Blu-ray copy of the thriller to give away.

James Corden and Kevin Hart Roast Each Other in Heated Rap Battle

16 June 2016 4:56 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As fans of The Late Late Show have come to learn, nothing is off limits during James Corden's "Drop the Mic" segments. The British host and his celebrity guests participate in epic rap battles, in which truth bombs are dropped left and right. We thought Corden suffered when Anne Hathaway absolutely destroyed him during their battle, but then David Schwimmer came on the show and we quickly realized it could always get worse. Wednesday night, however, "Drop the Mic" was brought to an entirely new level—and it was incredible. Kevin Hart appeared on The Late Late Show, and boy did both stars bring it. "Where is he? There he is? I found you Kevin Hart," Corden began, referencing »

Exclusive Interview: Legendary director Garry Marshall on Mother’s Day, holiday films and memories of Robin Williams

6 June 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his new film Mother’s Day set for release in the UK this Friday (June 10th), Flickering Myth’s Scott J. Davis sat down (well, on the phone at least) to chat with legendary director Garry Marshall (Overboard, Pretty Woman) to discuss his latest effort, some of his most famous projects, and working with the late Robin Williams.

Mother’s Day marks the third “holiday” themed film that Marshall has made in recent years after the success of 2010’s Valentine’s Day, which grossed over $216 million worldwide, and its follow-up New Year’s Eve, which made $142 million. But while Mother’s Day marks something of a trilogy, Marshall was looking more for a story about mothers than another holiday one:

“I wanted to do something about mothers. I found that a very interesting subject – how to be a parent today, in this case and how your relationships go on. »
