The Tribeca Film Festival Is Here! What We're Most Excited About

16 April 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Tribeca Film Festival. This year's fest kicks off tonight and runs through Apr. 27. Here's what we're looking forward to most: The Movies: She's great in front of the camera, but now Courteney Cox is now trying her hand behind the scenes, too. Her first directorial feature debut, Just Before I Go, will debut at Tiff and stars American Pie's Seann William Scott and Private Practice's Kate Walsh. Are you a fan of Chinese food?

2014 Tribeca Film Festival Must-See Movies: 'About Alex,' 'Begin Again' And More

15 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The 13th Tribeca Film Festival begins Wednesday, April 16 with a lineup featuring over 50 world premieres and even more must-see films.

This year’s Tribeca line-up begins Wednesday, April 16 with a screening of Time Is Illmatic, a documentary celebrating the 20th anniversary of Nas’ 1994 album Illmatic. After the screening, Nas himself will perform songs from his legendary album.

Features Premiering At Tribeca

TV comedies collide in About Alex, which stars Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza and New Girl’s Max Greenfield – not to mention Jane Levy (Subergatory), Max Minghella (The Mindy Project, The Social Network), Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Nate Parker and Maggie Grace (Taken, Lost). Written and directed by Jesse Zwick, this The Big Chill homage takes place during a weekend away, as old friends in their mi-twenties come together to help one in the group who is suicidal.

Another TV-star driven film premiering at Tribeca is Life Partners, starring »

‘Knights of Badassdom’ Review

13 March 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Steve ZahnRyan Kwanten, Peter DinklageDanny Pudi, Summer GlauBrian Posehn | Written by Kevin Dreyfuss, Matt Wall | Directed by Joe Lynch

[Editors Note: Knights of Badassdom had a very long and very troubled journey to release and the version available now in the Us is not director Joe Lynch's original vision, the film having been taken out of his hands and re-edited by the producer(s). Read more about it here and here]

Larpining (or Live Action Role Playing) is subcultural phenomenon that is continuing to gain notoriety. For some it is a way of life, while for others they are not sure what language the word Larpining originates from. Larpining has had some cinematic spotlight in the past including the documentary Darkon and probably most infamously in the Paul Rudd & Seann William Scott comedy Role Models. However, director Joe Lynch takes his film Knights of Badassdom  in an entirely different  direction.

Knights of Badassdom  asks the question of what happens when you take real life pretend fantasy and add true demonic forces. Based on the premise and cast the potential is rich with uniqueness.  This could easily be in the same vein as films like Evil Dead, Cabin in the Woods, »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2011

12 March 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 13 Mar 2014 - 05:44

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2011, and a great year for lesser-seen gems...

Even a cursory glance at the top 10 grossing films of 2011 reveals something strange: nine of the entries are sequels. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the fantasy franchise to a close with a staggering $1.3bn haul. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon wasn't too far behind with just over $1.1bn. On Stranger Tides continued the Pirates Of The Caribbean series' wave of success, despite mixed reviews.

Elsewhere in the top 10, you'll find another Twilight, a fourth Mission: Impossible, a second Kung Fu Panda, a fifth Fast, another Hangover, and further Cars. Standing alone on the list is The Smurfs, the adaptation of Peyo's Belgian comic strip. In fact, 2011 saw the release of no fewer than 28 sequels - the most we've yet seen in any given year. »

Clueless: What the cast did after hit teen comedy

11 March 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Iggy Azalea paid tribute to cult teen classic Clueless in her recent music video for 'Fancy'.

The Australian rapper appears as Alicia Silverstone's iconic character Cher in the video, which was released online last week.

As stars continue to be inspired by the movie almost 20 years on, we take a fond look back at the cast and what they went on to do after Clueless:

Alicia Silverstone (Cher Horowitz)

Alicia Silverstone played seemingly shallow socialite Cher - famously branded "a virgin who can't drive" and "hymenally challenged" - in the high-school adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.

Prior to Clueless, Silverstone's credits included ABC comedy-drama The Wonder Years and a number of Aerosmith videos. The film propelled her to further fame, and she went on to star in Joel Schumacher's 1997 movie Batman & Robin, crime-comedy Excess Baggage (1997) with Benicio Del Toro and Christopher Walken, and romantic drama Blast from the Past (1999) opposite Brendan Fraser. »

MTV Movie Awards: Will Jennifer Lawrence

10 March 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In the 23 years of the MTV Movie Awards, only four same-sex scenes have won Best Kiss, and just one of those was between two women. But another such sapphic smooch is tipped to take the prize this year: Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams are the overwhelming favorites to win for locking lips in "American Hustle," getting 1/5 odds from our predictors. (Take a gander at these gals in action at the bottom of this post.) Two of three smacks between fellows were played for laughs: Jason Biggs and Seann William Scott in "American Pie 2," and Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen in "Talladega Nights." -Break- The only genuinely romantic same-sex kiss to win was between Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in "Brokeback Mountain," which was probably the first and only time the award had cultural significance: only a few months after the Oscars rejected "Brokeback" for Best Picture, the MTV generation threw t. »

6 March 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival has filled out its 2014 feature slate with a starry Spotlight section as well as midnight and special screenings, a group that taken together includes a new movie written by Joss Whedon, the directorial debut of Courteney Cox,  a Katie Holmes starrer, meme-fodder mashup “Zombeavers” and a doc about “bronies,” the adult-male fans of “My Little Pony.”

The section’s roster includes a notable list of world premieres including “In Your Eyes,” a metaphysical romance penned by Whedon, directed by Brin Hill and starring Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David; “Just Before I Go,” the Cox-helmed comedy that stars Seann William Scott, Rob Riggle, Olivia Thirlby and Garret Dillahunt; and Holmes starrer “Miss Meadows,” Karen Leigh Hopkins »

‘Rush’ Producer Exclusive Media Lays Off Half a Dozen

21 February 2014 4:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Layoffs have hit sales-production-finance company Exclusive Media with half a dozen pink slips issued, a PR rep for Exclusive confirmed Friday.

The redundancies came two weeks after news emerged during the European Film Market that  Dasym Investment Strategies — Exclusive Media’s majority owner — had decided to restructure the company. That move was interpreted as a prelude to Exclusive Media toppers Nigel Sinclair and Guy East departing although the duo remain in place.

“Collaborative and fruitful discussions between Exclusive Media’s management and Dasym Investment Strategies are ongoing,” a statement said. “Dasym will continue its support for the company.  Together we have taken steps to right size our operations.  We anticipate making a formal announcement regarding the go forward plan for the company within the next few weeks.”

Variety reported on Feb. 7 that reasons for the rupture appear connected to a dispute that flared up between East and Sinclair and Frank Botman, »

Guy East, Nigel Sinclair May Be Heading For Exclusive Media Exit

7 February 2014 6:55 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran sales agents Nigel Sinclair and Guy East appear headed for the exit from the powerhouse indie sales and production finance company Exclusive Media.

“Exclusive Media’s management is engaged in collaborative discussions with our partners from Dasym Investment Strategies regarding the forward plan for the company. We will make an announcement regarding the outcome of these discussions at the appropriate time,” said Sinclair in a statement.

Sources close to the company say that all will be business as usual during the European Film market in Berlin, that the Whitey Bulger picture “Black Mass” is back on track again, with Johnny Depp on board. The picture headed off the rails in mid-2013 when Depp reportedly pulled out.

Other pictures the company is selling titles in Berlin include “Dark Places,” starring Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult; Keanu Reeves-Rachel McAdams sci-fi pic “Passengers”; and “The Woman In Black: Angel of Death. »

Only Fools, Seinfeld, Sex and the City: When TV Reunions Go Wrong

3 February 2014 10:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

TV reunions rarely go smoothly - for every smooth Firefly to Serenity transition, there's a Seinfeld Super Bowl ad, with Jerry and George's attempts to recreate their repartee feeling like a pale imitation of the great '90s sitcom.

Recapturing old magic is a tricky business - some would say it's nigh-on impossible - and these few examples of ill-advised television comebacks would seem to suggest that the critics might be right.

Only Fools and Horses

BBC One's wildly popular sitcom got the perfect ending first time round - the Trotters won a fortune in 1996's 'Time On Our Hands' and finally got the flash lifestyle they'd always dreamed of, but Del Boy (David Jason) just couldn't tame his wheeler dealer spirit and promised to turn their millions into billions…

What a shame that the whole thing was spoilt five years later - robbed of most of their cash, Del »

Accept This Rose: The 9 Hottest “Bachelor” Stars

6 January 2014 7:30 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

 

The thing with The Bachelor is you consider watching every season, but you might decide against it based on the following criteria: 1) The bachelor isn’t hot/cool/tolerable enough — always a possibility; 2) you realize The Bachelorette is inherently a better series because a bunch of hapless men fighting for the affection of an aloof woman is way funnier than a bunch of hapless women fighting for the affection of an aloof man. God, remember Kasey from Ali Fedotowski‘s season? And his monotone mantra? “I want to guide and protect her heart. I want to guide and protect her heart.” Dear Kasey: Those are synonyms. 3) I dunno, maybe instead you want to catch up on Breaking Bad or Veep or something you’ll remember in a year. Whatever.

The point is, the threat of male hotness is always a reason to tune in for an episode or two of The Bachelor, »
