Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Ann-Margret movies: From sex kitten to two-time Oscar nominee. Ann-Margret: 'Carnal Knowledge' and 'Tommy' proved that 'sex symbol' was a remarkable actress Ann-Margret, the '60s star who went from sex kitten to respected actress and two-time Oscar nominee, is Turner Classic Movies' star today, Aug. 13, '15. As part of its “Summer Under the Stars” series, TCM is showing this evening the movies that earned Ann-Margret her Academy Award nods: Mike Nichols' Carnal Knowledge (1971) and Ken Russell's Tommy (1975). Written by Jules Feiffer, and starring Jack Nicholson and Art Garfunkel, the downbeat – some have found it misogynistic; others have praised it for presenting American men as chauvinistic pigs – Carnal Knowledge is one of the precursors of “adult Hollywood moviemaking,” a rare species that, propelled by the success of disparate arthouse fare such as Vilgot Sjöman's I Am Curious (Yellow) and Costa-Gavras' Z, briefly flourished from »

New Line Cinema’s habit of remaking its own titles every ten or so years, presumably to “keep them fresh,” is reaching farther back in time for Going In Style. Based on the 1979 movie by Martin Brest (Scent Of A Woman), the 2015 version is ploughing ahead with Zach Braff taking over directorial duties from the film’s writer Ted Melfi and a leading man finally locked down.
According to the latest report from Deadline, Matt Dillon is on board to play an FBI agent tasked with tracking a bunch of cantankerous pensioners whose later-in-life hobbies involve bank robbery. The original seventies outing featured George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasburg as three elderly New Yorkers who choose to stave off the boredom of old age by robbing a bank. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin, a superb line-up, play that same trio in Braff’s version. Instead of robbing »

Zach Braff might not be the first person you’d think of to be directing a remake of 1979 George Burns comedy Going In Style, but that’s exactly what’s happening. He’s now added Matt Dillon to the cast.Dillon joins Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin in the film, which has a script from Ted Melfi.

Their story becomes a media cause célèbre, but ill health and killjoy cops but a dampener on their adventures.

Michael Caine young. Michael Caine movies: From Irwin Allen bombs to Woody Allen classic It's hard to believe that Michael Caine has been around making movies for nearly six decades. No wonder he's had time to appear – in roles big and small and tiny – in more than 120 films, ranging from unwatchable stuff like the Sylvester Stallone soccer flick Victory and Michael Ritchie's adventure flick The Island to Brian G. Hutton's X, Y and Zee, Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Sleuth (a duel of wits and acting styles with Laurence Olivier), and Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men. (See TCM's Michael Caine movie schedule further below.) Throughout his long, long career, Caine has played heroes and villains and everything in between. Sometimes, in his worst vehicles, he has floundered along with everybody else. At other times, he was the best element in otherwise disappointing fare, e.g., Philip Kaufman's Quills. »

The Fletch remake is one that has been around for ever, as it has kicked between various directors, actors and movie studios. It's spent its life lingering in development Hell, but Relativity's recently announced bankruptcy may have just breathed new life into this beloved detective comedy. First at Mirimax, and then shuffled over to Warner Bros., Fletch finally found its home at Relativity. But like their Crow remake, it had trouble getting off the ground. Now their financial woes seem to be forcing their hand. The studio is seeking out another studio to help get Fletch moving once again.
Fletch is being included in a potential deal that will keep Relativity active through their Chapter 11 crisis. THR has the report, which sees Fletch as one of the more attractive elements in helping the corporation go through restructuring in its attempt to find new investors. As of now, the studio is »
Updated: A few TV anchors were not happy with Cara Delevingne, and it made for one cringe-worthy interview.
The model and actress appeared on “Good Day Sacramento” to promote her film “Paper Towns,” and the interview grew tense as she seemed less-than-enthusiastic and the anchors called her out for it.
One of the anchors starts the interview by calling Delevingne “Carla,” and it’s all downhill from there. Her co-host then asks the actress if juggling several projects helps her focus.
“No,” she answered. “I don’t know where that comes from.”
Delevingne gave several sarcastic responses to the questions. When asked if she relates to her “Paper Towns” character, Margo, she jokingly replied, “No, I actually hate her.”
One of the co-hosts asked Delevingne if she was “just exhausted,” and she explained that the John Green movie had just had its premiere the night before, and that it was an emotional evening. »
