Trump Facing Growing Pressure on Twitter to #FireBannon After Deadly White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville

14 August 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After violence erupted and claimed the life of an anti-racist protester at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, President Donald Trump faced growing pressure on social media to fire chief strategist Steve Bannon — the man who once proudly proclaimed his Breitbart News website as “the platform for the alt-right.”

The hashtag #FireBannon was trending on Twitter for much of Sunday evening and into Monday as celebrities and politicians called for Trump to axe Bannon, who is often cited as the nexus between the president and white nationalists.

“White supremacy has no place in America,” tweeted Star Trek actor George Takei. »

No Cynicism Allowed: ABC Banks on Family Comedies With Multigenerational Appeal

6 August 2017 5:51 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC is going against the prevailing winds in TV and making a big bet on family values.

The network is banking on the strength of its comedy roster this fall by expanding its Tuesday sitcom block from one to two hours. The clutch of family-centric laffers that will air from 8-10 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday represent the most well-defined comedy brand among the Big Four networks at present.

For sure, there’s been a years-long drought of big breakthrough comedy hits across the broadcast nets. But ABC has steadily built a bench of half-hours that are consistent, if not spectacular, performers for the network. ABC was home to six of the top 10 broadcast TV sitcoms last season, including two freshman entries: “Modern Family,” “The Goldbergs,” “Blackish,” “Speechless,” “The Middle” and “American Housewife.”

“We have comedies that are all very unique and specific in their point of view and the families they describe and yet they »

Film Review: ‘The Only Living Boy in New York’

4 August 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Only Living Boy in New York” is the new movie from director Marc Webb, who made “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its sequel (as well as the cookie-cutter child-genius drama “Gifted”), and it’s the first film he’s directed since “(500) Days of Summer” — yes, eight years ago — in which you can really feel the prickly pulse of his sensibility. It’s like “The Graduate” recast as a glibly literate slacker comedy with an entangled kink or two.

The hero, Thomas Webb (Callum Turner), is a gently acerbic rebel preppie who is spending his life figuring out what he wants to do with his life. He’s a would-be fiction writer coping with a world in which highly personalized art is disappearing — at least, as a monetizable career. And it’s not like that’s the only thing on the wane. The general erosion of middle-class security actually influences the way you watch a movie like this »

'The Only Living Boy in New York': Film Review

4 August 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It's quite a feat for a movie to deploy Simon & Garfunkel's "The Only Living Boy in New York" and somehow leave you cold. With its wistful melody, the cathartic swell and gentle retreat of its chorus, the song is like emotional crack. Ryan Murphy made stirring use of it in the final scene of his The Normal Heart for HBO. Years earlier, it helped the climactic, rain-soaked kiss between Zach Braff and Natalie Portman in Garden State transcend that film's cloying cutesiness. (Even those Honda Accord ads may give you the feels.)

‘SNL': Zach Braff Campaigns to Play Stephen Miller

3 August 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Believe it or not, there’s at least one person who was inspired by Trump senior policy advisor Stephen Miller’s Wednesday anti-immigration epithet: actor Zach Braff. The “Scrubs” veteran has expressed an interest in parodying Miller for “Saturday Night Live,” and took it upon himself to personally campaign for it. On Wednesday, Braff tweeted a headshot of Miller’s face along with the caption, “Dear Lorne Michaels, I can do this. Put me in Coach.” Also Read: Trump Adviser Stephen Miller Slams CNN's Jim Acosta to His Face: 'Ignorant and Foolish' (Video) Dear Lorne Michaels, I can do this. »

Sean Spicer Courted by ‘Dancing With the Stars’ (Report)

26 July 2017 4:04 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sean Spicer has never been so popular. The now-ex White House Press Secretary is currently being courted by a number of TV news channels, as well as one entertainment show that he may not be as natural a fit for: ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” Page Six reported Wednesday that Spicer has “been seen coming out of high-level meetings at ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox News in Manhattan.” That ABC one wasn’t for David Muir’s benefit, however — it was apparently for Tom Bergeron’s.

Following the arrival of a poster for earlier today [check it out here], A24 has now unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming biographical comedy drama The Disaster Artist.

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau – an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable – into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all »

“Oh, Hi Mark!” – first trailer for James Franco’s The Disaster Artist arrives

18 July 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

As if we couldn’t be any more excited by this one, A24 have released the very first trailer for the eagerly anticipated The Disaster Artist, which you can view below.

Based on the book of the same name by Greg Sestero, The Disaster Artist tells the behind-the-scenes story of cinema’s greatest bad film, The Room, and the work of writer/director Tommy Wiseau (played by Franco in the film) who created the film. Dave Franco stars as Sestero in the film alongside an array of A-list talent who fill out the supporting roles.

The Room gained ultimate cult status back in 2003 and was considered one of the worst films of all time. But as the years went on, the film grew into one of the “must-see” films and through many additional screenings, including quote-a-longs at London’s Prince Charles Cinema (where it now plays many »

James Franco is Tommy Wiseau in First Teaser for ‘The Disaster Artist’

18 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Filmmaker, actor and underwear designer Tommy Wiseau became something of a cult phenomenon when he released his baffling 2003 film The Room. A poorly made, bizarrely acted melodrama, Wiseau’s Room would go on to achieve midnight movie status — the type of so-bad-it’s-good film that grows through word of mouth via the incredulous viewers who happen to witness it.

Now the story of how Wiseau made The Room is a film itself in James Franco’s The Disaster Artist. The making-of The Room tale is seen through the eyes of Greg Sestero (Dave Franco), who served as a line producer on the film and played Mark, of “oh, hi Mark” fame. Director James Franco also plays Wiseau, adopting the filmmaker’s trademark accent and aloofness to eerie perfection.

Based on the book of the same name by Sestero and Tom Bissell, The Disaster Artist features a loaded cast that includes Seth Rogen, »

James Franco is Tommy Wiseau on first poster for The Disaster Artist

18 July 2017 3:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the first trailer set to arrive later today, A24 Films has unveiled a poster for writer-director James Franco’s upcoming biographical comedy drama The Disaster Artist featuring Franco as Tommy Wiseau, filmmaker behind The Room; take a look below…

In 2003, an independent film called The Room – starring and written, produced, and directed by a mysteriously wealthy social misfit named Tommy Wiseau – made its disastrous debut in Los Angeles. Described by one reviewer as ‘like getting stabbed in the head’, the $6 million film earned a grand total of $1,800 at the box office and closed after two weeks. Over a decade later, The Room is an international cult phenomenon, whose legions of fans attend screenings featuring costumes, audience rituals, merchandising and thousands of plastic spoons.

The Disaster Artist is set for release on December 1st and stars Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Allison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Lizzy Caplan, »

Great Job, Internet!: Garden State gets the Dave Matthews soundtrack it deserves

14 July 2017 10:23 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Not a lot of folks like Garden State these days. Consider: Noisey’s 10th-anniversary article, which calls it “a love story for a generation of sexually inept sociopaths.” Or Jezebel’s anniversary piece, which notes that Zach Braff has “a perfectly round mouth like a lamprey.” Why the hate? Probably because it’s a movie from 2004 about a sensitive, deep twentysomething white man, and pop culture has largely packed its bags and moved on from that cursed micro-genre.

For his part, Braff has denied that the movie is bad, though he has yet to respond to the allegations that he has a lamprey mouth. But let’s see Zach Braff deny this: Garden State would be vastly improved with an all-Dave Matthews Band soundtrack.

It’s a match made in hell. Garden State’s solipsistic hipsterism would be undercut by Dave Matthews, whose terminally uncool bleat poisons everything around »
