TV Review: Billy Crystal’s ’700 Sundays’

16 April 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s latest front-row seat to a theatrical one-man play shifts from Mike Tyson to Billy Crystal, translating the latter’s comic memoir “700 Sundays” into a TV special. Nostalgic and deeply personal — at a full two hours, there’s no escaping that the show amounts to a whole lot of Crystal — it’s heavily skewed toward an audience old enough to appreciate references to Mickey Mantle, Billie Holiday, and a mock Yiddish rant where the only English word is “retail.” Ultimately, Crystal’s joy in performing, and appreciation for how he got from there to here, shines through, but the special is still best consumed in pieces.

Crystal derived the title from the precious weekend days he got to spend with his hard-working father, a record-store owner and jazz producer who dropped dead when Crystal was just 15.

Crystal’s father and uncle brought him into contact early with showbiz and »

Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #29: Bert Marcus Searches for the American Dream in Sports Documentary 'Champs'

15 April 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sports movies tend to focus on the strenuous nature of professional athletics and competition, with few of them ever really managing to depict a larger, more worldly topic. Such is not the case with Bert Marcus' boxing documentary "Champs," which tackles social issues as the American dream and the perpetual distance between wealth and poverty that many athletes (such as Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Bernard Hopkins) and non-athletes alike still struggle to overcome. Tell us about yourself. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and although I have constantly sought out new adventures and travels, no matter where life leads me, there is no place like home. From a young age, I brought humor and fun into most facets of my life, which led to journalism and student government in high school, which in turn grew into working at Clear Channel radio with on-air personalities and then »

Social Media Buzz: ‘Rio 2′ to Fly High Above Box Office

11 April 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Rio 2

After a weekend where competitors ran for cover under the onslaught of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” three movies launch this weekend aiming to draw attention from beyond the young male audience. “Rio 2″ arrives three years after the original which opened to $39.2 million and social data suggests this sequel is set for a strong performance.

Rio 2″ will be looking to appeal specifically to family audiences, and that dictates using marketing platforms in a different way. While a large TV presence is intended to garner interest »

WWE WrestleMania 30: Why Daniel Bryan vs. The Authority Feud Must Continue

6 April 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Tonight at WWE WrestleMania XXX the winner of the Daniel Bryan or Triple H match will become the third man in the triple threat match with Randy Orton and Batista for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Some believe Daniel Bryan will defeat Triple H and enter the Main Event match, others think Triple H will go over Daniel Bryan to fight for the championship. There’s even the third option, we get no clear cut winner, a swerve of sorts, in the Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H match and both go on, turning the match with Batista and Randy Orton into a fatal four way.

Regardless of the outcome in the Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H match, no matter if Daniel Bryan comes out of WrestleMania XXX as the WWE World Heavyweight champion or if the WWE decides to screw with the rabid Daniel Bryan fanbase yet again »

Sixteen Classic Werner Herzog Films Will Be Streaming on Fandor

4 April 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Herzog fans, rejoice. Fandor has attained exclusive streaming rights for no less than 16 (!) of the German auteur's films. "Aguirre the Wrath of God" has its bow on April 10, with one new title launching each week through July 2014. Fandor's recent CEO and Toh! contributor Ted Hope helped to negotiate the deal for the site. So, which Herzog films are part of this new collection? The titles span three decades, incorporating both narrative and documentary, and include all the director's work with his stormy muse Klaus Kinski (as well as the documentary on their insanely tempestuous relationship, "My Best Fiend"). Meanwhile, the 71-year-old Herzog is still as active and marvelously unpredictable as ever: He's finishing up filming in Morocco on Gertrude Bell/T.E. Lawrence biopic "Queen of the Desert," starring Nicole Kidman and Robert Pattinson, and has school shooting dark comedy "Vernon God Little" up next, with the unlikely names of Pamela Anderson, »

WWE: 10 Steps To Book Brock Lesnar From Now Until WrestleMania 31

31 March 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE have really made a hash of Brock Lesnar. When they signed the former WWE Champion back up in 2012, they were getting a box office sensation, a man who had done over a million PPV buys in the Ufc. Lesnar was a mainstream celebrity from his fighting infamy, he was known in the same vein as Iron Mike Tyson was in his prime. Lesnar was the baddest man on the planet. If it hadn’t been for a problem with diverticulitis he would have likely enjoyed further success in Mma, but as fate would have it, Lesnar could no longer compete effectively due to his gut surgery. Instead he ended up back where he started out as a name, the WWE, who paid Lesnar millions to secure his fame and services.

The WWE had a star on their hands. Lesnar was the hottest box office name on the planet, »

Listen to ‘Fever,’ the Black Keys’ First New Song Since 2011

24 March 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Friday afternoon, the Black Keys had Mike Tyson tweet out the video announcing their new album, Turn Blue. Today, without the help of any reformed ear-biters, we have the first single from the album, “Fever.” Though this is their first song since 2011’s El Camino, with its Halloween organs, it's actually a bit more reminiscent of the 2008, Danger Mouse–produced Attack & Release. Turn Blue comes out on May 13, 2014, just in case you have a fever and the only prescription is more Black Keys. »

The New Black Keys Album Has a Release Date, Creepy Promo Video

22 March 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You may not have paid much mind to Mike Tyson’s Friday afternoon tweet: "Turn blue" isn’t really the sort of celebrity message that elicits much reaction. But if you were curious (read: smart enough) to click the YouTube link, then stayed through to the end of the of the 2-minute, 19-second video of a spinning wheel record and a bizarre man in a green suit talking about….well, we’re not really sure, then you’d know that at the very end, there's a blue screen that tells you The Black Keys' latest album, titled Turn Blue, will be out May 13.

The 7 Nes Games You're Still Having Fun With

13 March 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

This month, our Cinelinx Gamer’s Club is putting the spotlight on Nintendo’s seminal console, the Nes.  Released in the early 80s, the console still holds a special place in gamers’ hearts the world over with a multitude of games that remain fun to play even by today’s standards.  Being such a big retro gamer myself, I thought I’d take this chance to talk about some of the most enjoyable Nes games that remain as fun to play today as they were when they released!

Before I get too far into this, I wanted to make a quick clarification; the games listed here are based almost entirely on fun factor.  Unlike my “Games the Have Aged Well” lists, which were based on how solid the mechanics were and what the game did to move the industry/genre forward, these are just plain and simple fun!  Some may seem dated, »

Knicks hoops documentary headlines Tribeca/Espn Sports Film Festival

13 March 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The New York Knicks are one of basketball’s most storied franchises but they haven’t won an NBA title since 1973. Celebrity fans like Spike Lee, Woody Allen, and screenwriter William Goldman worshipped the star-studded — but team-first — Knicks teams of that championship era, and a generation of aging sportswriters refuse to let those hardwood legends die. Actor Michael Rapaport was only three years old when the Knicks won their last title, but he’s turned his yearning for those glory years into a documentary, When the Garden was Eden.
