10 Celebs Who Won't Work Together

6 April 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

Everyone loves a good celebrity feud: And these 10, rounded up by TheRichest , are reportedly so bad that the actors involved refuse to work together. Five standout pairs: Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte's 1994 romantic comedy I Love Trouble was spark-free, and perhaps that's because they worked together so poorly they reportedly had to shoot their scenes separately. Afterward, Roberts called Nolte "completely disgusting" and he called her "not a nice person." Bill Murray starred in the first Charlie's Angels movie, and reportedly had a bit of a hissy fit on set, interrupting a scene to ask Lucy Liu , "What »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues"

What's It About? Can Ron Burgundy and his team up their game to take on the 24-hour news cycle? Will they take a bite out of the Big Apple or choke? Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate return for more unclassy antics.

Why We're In: Anyone who's watched a Will Ferrell/Adam McKay film knows that the alternate and extended scenes are endlessly watchable. That goes double for "Anchorman 2," which was initially released as a PG-13 film and later upgraded to a "super-sized R."

Exclusive: Watch a scene from "Super-Sized R-Rated" Version of "Anchorman 2" (Video)

Disney Blu-ray Roundup: ‘The Pirate Fairy’

31 March 2014 9:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Pirate Fairy

Directed by Peggy Holmes

USA, 2014

I’m not typically fond of reviews in which the writer says, in effect, “This movie wasn’t made for me,” mostly because it seems like a way in which to award something a potentially undeserved free pass. This claim frequently crops up in reviews of family films or animation that’s targeted at kids before adults. Really, the problem stems from an attitude at places like the Walt Disney Company, where executives presume that appealing to everyone matters less if you can focus entirely on a subset of people. The best that Disney animation has to offer (though this applies to animation and family films from any studio) aims to please everyone, not just little boys or little girls. I don’t mean to suggest that saying Movie X wasn’t made for you (the general “you”) is always false or inaccurate, »

Vulture Pharrell on his Oscar loss and Frozen's "Let it Go"

Cinema Blend super depressing think piece about Chris Evans planned retirement after Captain America and why our franchise culture kills an actor's passion

Empire Madonna is not done directing. Next up: Ade: A Love Story based on the novel by Alice Walker's daughter

Guardian wonders when we'll start seeing gay parents in family films from Disney

Variety True Detective will compete in drama rather than in miniseries at the Emmys. Interesting move, right? I still think the Emmys need to start making rulings on this sort of thing just so there's consistency, rather than letting the shows decide. 

The Wire Fwiw this is the article that seems to make the most sense as to why HBO is doing that

Film School Rejects Plans for Prometheus 2 move forward. Rumors of multiple Michael Fassbender sound perfect to me. Fill the screen with him. »

Lenny Henry goes Bafta basics and adds fun to television lecture | Media Monkey

18 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Bafta's annual television lecture is not known for its laughs. But amid his serious plea for more black, Asian and minority ethnic workers in broadcasting, Lenny Henry's speech on Monday night had television executives – including ITV boss Peter Fincham – rolling in the aisles. Speaking about the Us adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, Elementary, Henry said it, "has the Korean actress Lucy Liu from Kill Bill and Charlie's Angels playing Doctor Watson. Ooh, very bold decision. There's as much chance of that happening here as seeing Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson on Mr and Mrs, isn't there?" Ba-doom, tish! And talking about the BBC's structural changes to boost programmes from the nations and regions, he said: "They set firm targets and even set quotas of a minimum amount of programmes they were going to commission from each nation and region. And the result, like Sally Bercow's alleged drinks bill, is spectacular. »

Most Infamous Female Movie Characters that Snapped

11 March 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Sugar and spice and slice-and-dice.

Women are not natural born killers. That’s the commonly held belief, supported by crime statistics that show that 93% of all murders are committed by men. But, what about that 7% of women that do kill, the ones responsible for 16,000 murders a year? Are women killers different, somehow, than other women, or are they just regular women driven to acts of insanity by money, revenge or passion? Examining the motivations and methodologies of women killers is what makes our crime series Snapped (weekdays at 6pm Et/3pm Pt) so wickedly fascinating.

As in real life, violent female characters comprise only a small percentage of the perpetrators of violence depicted on the big screen, but the truly terrifying ones make a lasting impression on us. Here's our rundown of the most infamous female characters in cinema, women that snapped and resorted to violence and even murder to achieve their goals. »

Elementary season 2 episode 16 review: The One Percent Solution

28 February 2014 5:27 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Louisa Mellor 28 Feb 2014 - 13:23

Sean Pertwee guest stars in this week's Elementary, a witty, delightful episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.16 The One Percent Solution

“We own chickens, don’t we?” Lucy Liu’s resigned punch line to this week’s Elementary topped off a highly entertaining episode from writer Bob Goodman.

The case itself was Elementary by the numbers, right down to the culprit being revealed as the harmless-looking witness interviewed and dismissed early on. (If Holmes and Watson were just to familiarise themselves with a season one box-set, they could save themselves a great deal of effort by just nabbing the sweet “I’m still not over the shock” witness from the off). By Elementary’s own rules, the bomber was either going to be the Labor Department Undersecretary or the restaurant manager, but as a wealthy white-collar ruling classes-type, the baddy odds were stacked in her favour. »

Elementary, Sherlock and the adaptation problem

13 February 2014 6:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Gem Wheeler 14 Feb 2014 - 07:00

Gem compares Elementary and Sherlock's approach to adapting Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories...

Warning: contains plot details for Sherlock series three and Elementary season two.

Unless you’ve been hiding out in a mysterious foreign country since 2012, you’ll know that Sherlock recently concluded its third series by presenting us with another tantalising mystery. The last time this happened, it was the thorny question of how Sherlock managed to survive his leap from the roof of St Bart’s. This year, we’re left to wonder how Moriarty apparently brushed aside the small matter of a self-inflicted bullet wound to the head. It’s comforting to know that times may change, but Sherlock’s capacity to induce fevered speculation and waves of online outrage will be with us for some time to come. 

We’ve been granted no fewer than three recent interpretations of the consulting detective. »

Ridiculous Plot Details for The Expendabelles and Director Announced

6 February 2014 11:45 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by tclarke597

As most of you already know, The Expendabelles is a female take on Sylvester Stallone's action franchise The Expendables. The movie is being developed over at  Millennium Films, and they've hired Robert Luketic to direct the film, which Stallone is also producing. Just so you know, this is the same guy that directed Legally Blonde, 21, The Ugly TruthKillers, and the incredibly awful film Paranoia. Once you read the ridiculous plot synopsis (via: Deadline) you'll understand why they ended up with this director, 

When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the right man for the job and that this is a mission so impossible that only women can handle it.

Robert Luketic Will Direct The ExpendaBelles

6 February 2014 9:11 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robert Luketic is now signed on to direct the female version of The Expendables, known as The ExpendaBelles. Several actresses have been rumored for the film in the past (Milla Jovovich, Cameron Diaz, Kate Beckinsale) but apparently, no one has been officially cast and the producers are working on their shortlist of who they want to have star.

Penning the script will be Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah, who wrote Luketic’s Legally Blonde, and producing will be Avi Lerner. The story is set to revolve around a group of deadly female operatives who “must pose as high-class call-girls shipped in by private plane to satisfy a dictator” after “America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists.” Sounds pretty crazy and it could turn out to be a lot of fun. »

6 February 2014 8:22 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

You want roles for women in actions filmsc Well guess what, the only way that can happen is if they disguise themselves as "high-class call-girls". That's right, don't call them hookers or prostitutes, these ladies are escorts and they will kill you... and dictators if need be. It was announced today The ExpendaBelles, an action franchise modeled after Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables, will be moving forward at Millennium Films with Robert Luketic (21, Legally Blonde) directing. Here's the synopsis: When America's Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world's top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear there is no such thing as the right man for the job and this is a mission so impossible only women can handle it.

Hulu Inks Deal to Offer CBS’s ‘Elementary’ to Paid Subscribers

3 February 2014 1:26 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu struck a deal with CBS for exclusive subscription video-on-demand rights for Sherlock Holmes-based drama “Elementary,” under which Hulu Plus subscribers will be able to watch full past seasons of the show.

Elementary,” currently in its second season, will come to Hulu Plus, which costs $7.99 per month, sometime after the show’s third campaign airs on the Eye. Last week CBS cut a syndie deal with Tribune Co.’s Wgn America for “Elementary”; similarly, the rerun window for Wgn America will not begin until after the show concludes its third season on CBS.

Hulu, which is owned by CBS rivals — Disney, NBCUniversal and 21st Century Fox — reached a deal with the Eye for primetime hit “The Good Wife,” under which the first four seasons became available on Hulu Plus with the season-five premiere.

Wgn America Nabs Reruns of CBS’ ‘Elementary’

30 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wgn America has cracked the case of “Elementary,” acquiring rerun rights to CBS’ detective drama.

The Tribune Co. cabler’s deal for the Sherlock Holmes’ procedural follows on the heels of its purchase of rights to another CBS drama, “Person of Interest,” from Warner Bros. TV. The deals are part of the effort by the new regime at Tribune to makeover Wgn America into a home for original and acquired drama series.

The Wgn America pact also ensures that “Elementary,” now in its second year, will be renewed for a third season on CBS (not that there was much doubt). The rerun window on Wgn America is expected to begin after the show wraps its junior year on the network. “Person of Interest” reruns are also skedded to bow in 2015.

“ ‘Elementary’ is a first-rate drama and terrific addition to the lineup of compelling content that is redefining Wgn America,” said »

Wgn America Nabs Off-Network Rights To CBS Drama ‘Elementary’

30 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Tribune’s Wgn America continues to aggressively build its programming slate with a second high-profile off-network acquisition. On the heels of its deal with Warner Bros for Person Of Interest, Wgn has picked up exclusive off-network cable rights to another CBS procedural drama, sophomore Elementary, from CBS TV Distribution. No premiere date has been announced, but Elementary is eyed as a companion to Poi, which debuts on Wgna in fall 2015, with Elementary expected to join the cable network’s lineup around that time. No one is commenting but I hear the license fee for Elementary is in line with or a tad higher than that $1.1 million-$1.5 million per episode that Poi commanded. (Both deals include a carved out broadcast window.) “Elementary is a first-rate drama and terrific addition to the lineup of compelling content that is redefining Wgn America,” said Wgna president Matt Cherniss. “It’s a perfect complement to our recent off-network acquisition, »
