16 Moments From the 1999 VMAs That Can Never Be Topped

24 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The VMAs are this weekend, and while I'm excited about the upcoming show, I've been reminiscing about my favorite VMAs of all time: 1999. Chris Rock hosted, Smash Mouth and Blink-182 entertained during the preshow, Lauryn Hill was the queen of the moonmen, and Britney Spears joined *Nsync for a medley of ". . . Baby One More Time" and "Tearin' Up My Heart." Fatboy Slim spun to "Praise You," Jay Z performed three of his hits, and the Beastie Boys took home the first-ever hip-hop award. On top of that, presenters included Tom Green, David Bowie, Will Smith, Carson Daly, Janeane Garofalo, Mark McGrath, Jennifer Lopez, Johnny Depp, and, of course, Paul McCartney. Before this weekend's festivities, let's take a minute to remember what may be the greatest VMAs show of all time. »

Film Review: ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years’

16 August 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Directing rock documentaries may outwardly seem something of a departure for Ron Howard, but that’s not to say he’s gone entirely off-brand: It’s fitting that one of Hollywood’s preeminent merchants of wholesome mainstream entertainment has made a portrait of the biggest band in music history that ends comfortably before things turned sour. Covering, as the title implies, the very zenith of Beatlemania from 1963 to 1966, the indecisively named “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years” does, to its credit, gradually capture the growing sense of fame-induced panic and ennui that prompted the Liverpudlians’ premature retreat from live performance, just as their music began to rock that little bit harder. But it comes as little surprise that Howard — a nimble and proficient storyteller in nonfiction and fiction alike, who previously helmed the Jay-z concert pic “Made in America” — hasn’t a natural documentarian’s drive for information: This diverting, »

Thank you for being here today and for 15 years, ‘Princess Diaries’

3 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us »

‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week’ Trailer: See the Band on the Run

31 July 2016 11:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Beatles, the legendary British boy band composed of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, changed the music industry in 1960 and have since become one of the most influential acts of rock and roll. In the new trailer for Ron Howard’s documentary “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week — The Touring Years,” the four members are seen at the height of Beattlemania, grateful – yet overwhelmed with all their success.

“We can’t go on forever as four clean little mop-tops playing ‘She Loves You,’” says Ringo in the clip.

Trailer for Ron Howard’s ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years’ Would Love to Turn You On

28 July 2016 9:21 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When I tell you I’m a huge, massive fan of The Beatles, know I’m being serious when I say we don’t really need another documentary about the four lads from Liverpool — certainly not one concerning their best-known years, and maybe not one directed by Ron Howard, who’s here making his leap into the form. The funny thing, then, about those low stakes is that this film’s promise of high-definition, never-before-seen footage is good enough, because if you don’t have expectations or, for that matter, great excitement, just about anything worthwhile can sweeten the deal.

You’ll see plenty of that in a full-length trailer for Howard’s documentary, which will be broadcast across England on September 15 with restored footage of their legendary Shea Stadium concert. American audiences will only have to wait until September 17, when it goes to Hulu — exactly the venue to replay »

Stan Lee Reflects on His Successes and Regrets: "I Should Have Been Greedier"

21 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

After 75 years in the comic book business, Stan Lee has picked up his fair share of souvenirs. His handsomely shabby office in Beverly Hills is cluttered with cool superhero swag. There's a vintage Spider-Man pinball machine in one corner, a life-sized Spidey statue squatting in another, framed photos with multiple presidents (and Beatle Paul McCartney) on the walls and, of course, an army of action figures — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, a doll that looks vaguely like Stan Lee himself — patrolling the bookshelves. But propped on the floor, easy to overlook amid all the superhero
