Danny McBride Suits Up For 'Alien: Covenant'

9 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There comes a time when every comic actor gives a turn toward fulfilling their cinephile side (see Jonah Hill, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Steve Carell etc.), and that's no different for Danny McBride. His first credited role was actually in his pal David Gordon Green's "All The Real Girls," and last year he crossed Cameron Crowe off the list with the misfire "Aloha." But now he's making the biggest movie of his career, with one of Hollywood's most legendary figures. Read More: 'Alien: Covenant' Will Be Set Ten Years After 'Prometheus' The Wrap reports that McBride is in early talks for Ridley Scott's "Alien: Covenant." He'll be joining Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston in the new movie that follows the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, who discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, »

The Office: Jim’s Seven Best Pranks on Dwight

9 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It is hard to believe that it has been 3 years since we were last treated to a brand new episode of the NBC comedy The Office , which ran from 2005 to 2013.  The series had a cast filled with talented actors, including Steve Carell, John Krasinski, and Mindy Kaling. One of the running gags on the long-running sitcom was Jim (Krasinski) playing practical jokes on his desk buddy Dwight (Rainn Wilson).  Over the course of nine seasons, Jim pulled 89 different pranks on Dwight during their time at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.  Jim also spent close to $6,000 to

2016 Oscar Previews: Part 1

7 February 2016 5:11 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 88th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 28th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

'Just Sayin!': Matt Damon Pokes Fun at Fellow Oscar Nominee Leonardo DiCaprio and The Revenant's Brutal Shoot

7 February 2016 1:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's Best Actor vs. Best Actor. During Saturday evening's Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles, Leonardo DiCaprio was on the receiving end of some gentle ribbing at the hands of fellow Oscar-nominated actor Matt Damon. As Damon introduced Ridley Scott, who directed Damon in The Martian, the 45-year-old actor referenced the iconic filmmaker's insistence that shooting end each day at the same time. "Every night at 6 o'clock, the horn blew and Ridley and I went to dinner," Damon started. "And that's how you make a movie, and we finished the film really early and we saved 2 million bucks. »

‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Adam McKay (‘The Big Short’)

3 February 2016 9:10 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s funny,” says Adam McKay — the Oscar-nominated co-writer and director of The Big Short who heretofore was known for the raunchy comedies he made with Will Ferrell, such as Anchorman and Talladega Nights — as we sit down in his guest house to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “The whole time we were making the movie I never thought of it as, ‘I’m doing something different.’ You just chase the movie, is kind of all you do. But there’s no question we’re thrilled with the reaction it’s getting.”

Freeheld | Blu-ray Review

2 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Released two weeks after premiering at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, Peter Sollet’s awards-baiting Lgbt drama Freeheld failed to command an Oscar campaign. Raking in just under six hundred thousand at the domestic office following a demure roll-out from distributor Lionsgate, this depiction of Laurel Hester’s 2005 fight for equality plays like a civil rights footnote eclipsed by more meaningful instances from the past decade. Despite some honorable performances from the likes of Julianne Moore and Michael Shannon (not to mention some woefully clichéd support from Steve Carrell), the film is fettered by its desperation to remain relevant and appealing, though it never captures the gravity clearly seen in Cynthia Wade’s documentary short, which provided the basis for this film.

As far as the importance of awareness and acceptance goes, these films are still important, now that some distance from the period allows the chance for significant introspection »

“Spotlight” takes the top prize from SAG to stay alive in the Oscar race

1 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG, for those who don’t know) did their best provide both questions and answers in regards to the Oscar race. On the one hand, much of what we suspected to the the Academy’s likely favorites remains as such, but on the other…there are certainly some potential upsets brewing. SAG was just one of the precursors over the weekend, as the Art Directors Guild and Ace Eddie announced their winners as well, which you can see below, but the SAG victors are what we’ll be focusing on today. So, let’s chat about that guild’s results! SAG managed to both clear up and confuse on Saturday. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson wrapped up their Oscar wins in Lead Acting categories, while Alicia Vikander likely became an unbeatable frontrunner as well in Best Supporting Actress. As for Best Supporting Actor, »

Last-Minute SAG Awards 2016 Predictions: Sentimentality and 'Diversity'

30 January 2016 4:50 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

2016 SAG Awards Predictions: The Winners Last-minute SAG Awards predictions, as the 2016 SAG Awards ceremony will begin in about half an hour (Jan. 30) at the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles. So far, there's one clear winner at the ceremony. That's veteran film and (mostly) television actress Carol Burnett (The Carol Burnett Show, Annie), who will be handed the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be handling that particular presentation. As for the SAG Awards' competitive motion picture categories, this year remains murkier than most even though the list of likely winners has been narrowed down in recent weeks – especially following the Golden Globes ceremony and the Oscar nominations announcement. The 'oddities' The easy part: eliminating the “oddities.” No matter how good (or not-so-good) their performances, Johnny Depp in Black Mass, Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back, Helen Mirren in Woman in Gold, Idris Elba »
