Kirsty Capes with ten stock female characters Hollywood needs to stop writing…
From Mary Sues to Disposable Women, Hollywood seems to have a problem with writing interesting and original female characters. It’s not a problem, I would argue, that seems to happen with male characters, and I for one find it interesting, if not a little disheartening, to pick apart some of my favourite women in film and realise that they are just another trope.
In an attempt to better identify when we’re presented with one of these tropes, I’ve put together a list of the most commonly occurring ones. My disclaimer is that, as you will see, some great characters and movies appear on this list, and identifying a character as a trope is in no way a reflection upon her or the movie as a whole. Some of the most fundamental tropes are also some »

There's nothing like an actual rain cloud to interrupt your day.
Branch (Justin Timberlake) and Poppy (Anna Kendrick) are searching for a troll tree, when Cloud Guy appears, and tries to set them off track. Rain clouds are kind of known for doing that, although this particular cloud does seem to have good intentions.
The fun clip is getting us super excited for Trolls, which could very well be like Shrek for this generation. With a voice cast including Timberlake, Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, James Corden, Russell Brand and Gwen Stefani, the film is bound to be both musical and hilarious.

The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing this week, with DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox hitting the Croisette to debut new footage from their animated feature Trolls, arriving in theaters November 4. For those who aren't at the film festival in France, the studio has released a first look clip from the movie, featuring Justin Timberlake's Branch and Anna Kendrick's Poppy meeting a new friend. It's been several months since the first trailer arrived in January, so hopefully we'll be getting a second trailer very soon.
From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny and irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks' Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach. »
It was a steady night of comedy farewells on Fox on Tuesday as New Girl ended its fifth season with a wedding and Grandfathered (0.6/2) and The Grinder (0.6/2) went out with a bit of whimper. With NBA and NHL playoff action elsewhere on the dial last night, The networks’ Jon Stamos-led show was down a tenth from last week while its Rob Lowe-led series was up a tenth from its May 3 offering. Fox hasn’t renewed either newbie yet, while the Zooey Deschanel show was picked up… »
“New Girl” producers probably aren’t tossing much wedding rice this morning, as Tuesday’s second nuptials episode actually slipped from the first. That said, 9 o’clock viewers are harder to attract than 8 p.m. eyeballs are, and both half-hours ticked up one-tenth of a Nielsen ratings point from last week. CBS and NBC once again tied atop the key 18-49 demographic in primetime, as “NCIS” and “The Voice” both rose. CBS again easily topped total viewers.

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick just performed the duet of your dreams. After a screening of select footage from their upcoming film Trolls, Timberlake, 35, and Kendrick, 30, took the stage to surprise one Cannes Film Festival audience with a special musical performance. The two sang a cover of Cyndi Lauper's hit "True Colors" from the film's soundtrack. "We are Anna and Garfunkel," Timberlake joked as he introduced the pair. "Okay, we are going to give this a go but you guys have to be nice, okay?" Before they began singing, Kendrick joked about how nervous she was for the performance. »

The 69th Cannes Film Festival doesn’t actually kick off until this evening with Woody Allen’s 2016 effort Café Society, but that didn’t stop the recently sold DreamWorks. After around 20 minutes of footage was screened very positively to a very warm audience, mostly made up of its target demographic, Kendrick took to the stage to perform their rendition of True Colors, which features in the movie.
Here’s a little more about Trolls before we share footage of the duo performing.

Like any good sitcom, New Girl's season five finale had a beautiful wedding that was only able to take place after about a billion obstacles got in the way of the bride and groom. But don't worry, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) actually tied the knot! We'll get into that in a minute, because first we need to talk about what happened with our other favorite New Girl couple, Nick and Jess (sorry, Winston and his prank wife), seemingly made some strides in their relationship. But did they really? Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Sam (David Walton) realized they weren't meant to be, and decided to part ways. That opened the door for Jess to realize her true feelings for »
Tonight’s Schmidt and Cece wedding won’t be the “New Girl’s” first nuptials; it won’t even be the second. But it will be the series’ best one (so far), if showrunner Liz Meriwether has anything to say about it. This has been a terrific season for the underrated comedy, one that had to endure six weeks without its titular character, due to Zooey Deschanel‘s real-life pregnancy. “It definitely scared me,” Meriwether told TheWrap of life without her quirky lead. “But then it worked out really well.” “Once we knew we were gonna do the show without »

In the weeks since Prince's passing, there have been numerous remembrances of the superstar's hilarious appearance on Fox sitcom "New Girl" back in 2014. Now, star Zooey Deschanel has opened up about her own experience working with the musician, and how the artist had some very specific demands about just who was -- and definitely was not -- allowed to cameo in the episode.
Deschanel appeared on "Conan" and discussed the surreal shoot, telling host Conan O'Brien that the concept for the episode -- Prince throws a party at his house in Los Angeles, which the "New Girl" characters attend -- demanded that some celebrities be there, too, since The Purple One wanted the experience to be as authentic to real life as possible (and obviously, when Prince has a party, his famous friends are going to show up).
But unfortunately for the "New Girl" crew, the decision to invite »

“New Girl” fans remember Prince’s cameo on the popular sitcom, but little do they know that he vetoed a Kardashian appearance – unfortunately, his request came a little too late. When Zooey Deschanel was a guest on “Conan” on Monday night, she explained how the late singer, who died in April at the age of 57, came to be on the show. “I got an email from his manager saying that he liked watching the show and wanted to come on,” she said. “I was definitely more than surprised, I didn’t picture him watching a sitcom, let alone my sitcom! »

Zooey Deschanel visited Conan Monday to talk about the time Prince made a rare appearance on an episode of New Girl. The actress first explained how the Prince casting came together before revealing that the late rocker nixed a major cameo for the 2014 episode.
The episode centered around a party scene with models Alessandra Ambrosio and Ana Beatriz Barros and Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw among those shown during the sequence. Absent from the episode, however, was an unspecified number of Kardashian family members, even though a few – including »
“Juliet, Naked” centers on Annie, the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan, and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered singer-songwriter Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan’s musical obsession.
CAA and UTA set up “Juliet, Naked” and are co-repping the rights.

Romance, crime, and ideas about time and interconnectedness, "The Driftless Area" stars Anton Yelchin and Zooey Deschanel in this unique story about a young man, caught up in extraordinary circumstances. And today we have an exclusive look at the movie. Based on the novel by Tom Drury, and also featuring Aubrey Plaza, John Hawkes, Alia Shawkat, Ciarin Hinds, and Frank Langella, this neo-noir tale follows Pierre, who returns to his hometown, runs afoul of a local criminal, and unexpectedly falls head over heels for a mysterious young woman.

A few thoughts on tonight's New Girl double feature coming up just as soon as I tell Alfonso Cuaron he's lost his lead otter... Knowing that both episodes would air on the same night, the show played with its format in interesting ways with this bachelor/bachelorette party idea, not only splitting the cast by gender, but devoting one episode to each party, so that Jess and Cece barely appear in "Road Trip," while the guys are only slightly more prominent in "A Chill Day In." It basically functioned as a small-scale version of the Arrested Development Netflix season, down to having Jess's texts to Winston in the first episode make much more sense after getting her side of the story in the second. Given that Jess/Cece has never been one of the show's best comic pairings (both of them are usually much funnier interacting with the guys), I »
