Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers Blu-ray Debuts November 30th

10 September 2010 5:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 2000 comedy Meet the Parents and its 2004 sequel Meet the Fockers will both be released on Blu-ray on November 30. We have no pricing details on either Bd release, but you can take a look at the cover art and special features below:

Male nurse Greg Focker is poised to propose to his girlfriend Pam during a weekend stay at her parents' home. But here's the catch, he needs to ask her father first. Alas, the fur flies as Jack Byrnes, Pam's cat-crazy, ex-cia father takes an immediate dislike to her less-than-truthful beau. Greg's quest for approval gets seriously sidetracked as Murphy's Law takes over and a string of mishaps turns him into a master of disaster and total pariah in the eyes of the entire family, all except for his shell-shocked girlfriend, who can't believe she still loves her one-man wrecking crew.

Exclusive Video: Brand New Who Do You Love Clip

9 April 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We have a brand new exclusive clip from the biopic Who Do You Love, which arrives in theaters today, April 9. Click below for our exclusive video, which features Alessandro Nivola as Leonard Chess and Chi McBride as Willie Nixon discussing the record business:

Exclusive: Lets Make Another One

Leonard Chess (Alessandro Nivola) changed the face of modern music, and he did so without playing a note. An immigrant living in Chicago just as the city was exploding with new blues sounds, he heard what few others did at the time: the universal passion in the music of performers like Etta James, Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley, who all rose to fame thanks to Chess. At first with a nightclub and then with his legendary record label, Leonard Chess earned his place in American cultural history. This is his story, the real story, and it rocks.

'Who Do You Love': White Boy Blues, By Kurt Loder

The Chess Records story, take two.

It's questionable whether Chess Records, the great rhythm & blues label of the 1950s, required two movies to (sort of) tell its story. Nevertheless, less than two years after the so-so "Cadillac Records," here comes "Who Do You Love," which is so-so in different ways.

The story is essentially the same in outline: how two scrappy Polish Jews, the brothers Leonard and Phil Chess, parlayed their family junkyard business into an R&B nightclub on Chicago's South Side, and then into an independent record label, which in 1950 they dubbed Chess. "Who Do You Love" is better on this part of the famous tale than "Cadillac Records" managed to be, thanks mainly to a clenched, forceful performance by Alessandro Nivola, who plays Leonard Chess as the overbearing hardass he quite likely was. »

Alessandro Nivola On the Record

8 April 2010 7:01 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Roguish 37-year-old actor Alessandro Nivola may not be a household name yet, perhaps because he gets so lost in the diverse roles he's claimed, whether he's the blithe English businessman wooed by Audrey Tautou in "Coco Before Chanel," the paleontology protégé who redeems his thieving ways in "Jurassic Park III," the metropolitan husband who can't lose his Southern roots in "Junebug," or the only actor to ever out-nutty Nicolas Cage as the schizophrenic brother in "Face/Off."

In director Jerry Zaks's new biopic "Who Do You Love," Nivola steps into the shoes of legendary Chicago record producer Leonard Chess, whose Chess Records (co-run with brother Phil, here played by Jon Abrahams) launched the careers of countless blues and early rock 'n' roll pioneers in the '50s and '60s, including Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry. Calling Nivola from the same Brooklyn neighborhood where he lives with his wife, »
