29 September 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bill Hader on “SNL” newbie Pete Davidson: "I told Lorne Michaels about him” Davidson, the breakout star of "SNL's" season premiere, has a small part in Hader and Amy Schumer’s movie “Trainwreck” from director Judd Apatow. "I told Lorne Michaels about him, said he was really funny,” says Hader. "And then they auditioned him for a piece, and Lorne called me to say Pete got the show. I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s wonderful!’” Then, Hader says Michaels surprised him with a question: “And then he said, “Uh, also, do you want to host?’ It was a total afterthought!” Plus: See Davidson, Hader and Schumer together on the set of "Trainwreck." “The Simpsons” paid a brief tribute to Joan Rivers Rivers was a last-minute addition to the season premiere, appearing in a mythical “Jewish Heaven.” Says exec producer Al Jean: "About a week after she passed away, »

2014 Returning Fall Series You Should Be Watching: Procedurals

26 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The fall TV season is just kicking off and it’s time to begin crafting a weekly TV-viewing schedule that fits your needs, genre preferences, and tastes, and that hopefully includes something old, something new, and something that’s been around for a while that you’ve been meaning to check out. Following up on Sound on Sight’s coverage of the fall’s new network series, contributor Claire Hellar will be recommending her top choices, by genre, of the networks’ returning shows.

As a general rule, the procedural is a TV genre in which there are too many rather than too few to choose from, though that doesn’t imply an embarrassment of riches. Middling, perfectly competent procedural series abound and differences in quality spring not so much from what certain shows do differently, but rather how they deliver the same set of elements. It’s nearly impossible to choose between mid-line series, »

Sun Rising Up: ‘Lost’ and Asian Women on TV

24 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The sixth episode of Lost was the first Sun episode. “House of the Rising Sun”, which originally aired on October 27, 2004, is one of the best episodes of the show’s first season, and it has stuck with me as the moment when Sun became a fully-formed and truly fascinating character, which she would remain until the end of the series.

Let’s talk about how rare this is. Sun is played by Yunjin Kim, a Korean actress who moved to the United States when she was 10, got some decent acting work, moved back to South Korea to star in films like Shiri (considered South Korea’s first blockbuster), and then was cast in Lost. In terms of representation on television, female Asian characters are hugely underserved, and Kim was one of the most consistently present Asian actresses on American TV for six seasons on Lost and now two seasons on Mistresses. »

14 Genre Features That Dominated Fantastic Fest

23 September 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Audience Award went to Studio Ghibli entry "The Tale of Princess Kaguya," director Isao Takahata's delicately hand-drawn retelling of a classic Japanese folktale now well-voiced in English by Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges and more. New Ghibli films from Miyazaki will be missed, but Takahata, who directed 1988's "Grave of the Fireflies," carries the animation studio's torch with mastery. The "Next Wave" Spotlight Competition prizes were given to "It Follows," David Robert Mitchell's creepy Std horror tale that wowed Cannes Critics' Week in May 2014. Mitchell also picked up the Best Screenplay prize for his deadly serious, artful chiller that will end up topping horror geek's best-of lists at the end of the year. (Interview with David Robert Mitchell here.) Ukrainian first-timer Miroslav Slaboshpitsky was shut out of the Foreign Language Oscar for his grueling "Lord of the Flies"-like »

Watch: Trailer for Studio Ghibli's Fantastic Fest Winner 'Tale of Princess Kaguya'

23 September 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This visually splendid, hand-drawn folktale retelling features English voice-work from Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, Daniel Dae Kim, James Marsden, Oliver Platt, John Cho, George Segal, Dean Cain and Darren Criss. While Ghibli films are best seen in their native language, the voicers do a fine job in this story of a girl the size of a thumb who, raised by a bamboo cutter, blossoms into a coveted princess and must choose a suitable husband. "Kaguya" delicately blends animated whimsy with classical storytelling, returning Takahata to the form of "Grave of the Fireflies" (1988) -- though that's a much more melancholy film. GKIDs distributes the film stateside on October 17. »

Studio Ghibli’s ‘Princess Kaguya’ gets an English-Language Trailer

23 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fresh off of its Audience Award win at Fantastic Fest 2014, Isao Takahata’s The Tale of Princess Kaguya has revealed its first English-dubbed trailer. The new trailer shows off considerably more of Kaguya’s story than the initial teaser trailer, Based on the 10th century Japanese folktale “The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter,” The Tale of Princess Kaguya tells the story of a baby girl found in the stalk of bamboo and tracks the princess from a young child to adulthood.

The Tale of Princess Kaguya also marks the end of an era in more ways than one. While the movie is expected to be the last produced by beloved animation studio Studio Ghibli, it may also be the final film from iconic animator Isao Takahata. During his Q&A at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, the 78-year old discussed his skepticism about making future films at his advanced age, »

Watch: Ghibli's 'The Tale of the Princess Kaguya' Official U.S. Trailer

23 September 2014 6:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm not really the biggest fan of dubbed films, even animated films dubbed into English never feel right. So, to watch Studio Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya in English seems as if something will be lost in the translation, not necessarily the meaning and certainly not the story, but the mood and tone can get disrupted. Yes, in the case of Kaguya a cast that includes the voices of Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, Daniel Dae Kim, James Marsden, Oliver Platt, John Cho, George Segal, Dean Cain and Darren Criss has been assembled so it isn't as if director Isao Takahata's (Grave of the Fireflies) film is getting a second-rate treatment, but it nevertheless seems "wrong" to me. That said, here is the official domestic trailer for the upcoming release of the film that just won the Fantastic Fest Audience Award. »

'Princess Kaguya' trailer offers a first listen of the Studio Ghibli film's English dub

23 September 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hayao Miyazaki's 2002 fantasy film "Spirited Away" is the only Best Animated Feature winner to be produced outside the English-speaking world. In fairness to the voters who still haven't bestowed Sylvain Chomet with an Oscar, there haven't been that many opportunities for outsiders to power through — the Academy only cemented the category for its 2002 ceremony (making Miyazaki's the only traditionally animated film to ever win the award too). So while the Oscars may not reflect the artistic legacy of Studio Ghibli — currently on a "brief pause" as it figures out how to be a money-making operation without recently retired, Walt Disney-like leader — the company arrives to the 2015 race with a major contender: "Tale of Princess Kaguya." Adapted from a 10th-century Japanese folktale by director and Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata ("Grave of the Fireflies," "My Neighbors the Yamadas"), "Princess Kaguya" is the story of girl discovered in a stalk of bamboo, »

The Tale Of Princess Kaguya Trailer

22 September 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The latest effort from Studio Ghibli and writer-director Isao Takahata, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, boasts a beautiful animation style that's all too uncommon in recent years, and befits the film's story inspired by one of Japan's most beloved folktales.  You'll know in an instant whether or not the sweeping, hand-drawn animation is your cup of tea, but the studio's pedigree should be reason enough to take a look at the first trailer for the English language version.  The story revolves around the titular princess, a tiny girl found inside a stalk of bamboo, who rapidly matures and mystifies those around her, but must inevitably pay the price for her crime. Featuring the English voice cast of Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Darren Criss, and Lucy LiuThe Tale of Princess Kaguya opens Stateside on October 17th.  For more on the film, be sure to check out Matt's review from Tiff, »

English-Dubbed Release of 'The Tale of Princess Kaguya' Full Trailer

22 September 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Because general American audiences have a weird aversion to films with subtitles, Studio Ghibli releases in the United States usually get an English-dubbed version featuring a wide array of actors doing the voiceover instead of the original Japanese recordings. The Tale of Princess Kaguya will see an English-dubbed version hit theaters this fall with Chloe Grace Moretz taking the lead role, and the first full theatrical trailer for that release has just arrived. Unlike the first Us teaser trailer for the animated gem, this one showcases the film's dialogue, brought to life with the voice talents of James Caan, Darren Criss, Lucy Liu, Mary Steenburgen, Beau Bridges, James Marsden, Oliver Platt and Dean Cain. Watch now! Here's the full Us trailer for the English-dubbed The Tale of Princess Kaguya, originally from Apple: Read Alex Billington's review from the Toronto International Film Festival right here.
