Memories of Alice, part 2 by Anne-Katrin Titze

30 January 2015 3:06 AM, PST | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Julianne Moore as Alice in Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's candid Still Alice: "She welcomed the role without any trepidation."

Alec Baldwin's character, Julianne Moore's connection to Robert Altman's Short Cuts and Lyle Lovett's If I Had A Boat sung by Karen Elson, fame for Errol Flynn in The Last of Robin Hood, starring Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon are remembered. James Keach's Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, The Time of the Harvest, Elizabeth Bishop and Bruno Barreto's Reaching For The Moon, Rita Hayworth, Marcel Proust, and Stacey Battat's costumes come into our conversation. Alice's children are played by Kate Bosworth, Hunter Parrish and Kristen Stewart.

Anne-Katrin Titze: You quote Elizabeth Bishop's The Art Of Losing. It's beautifully used by Alice.

Kristen Stewart as Lydia: "Lydia is away on the other coast and becomes very significant in the story. »

Gabrielle Union Made Some Serious, Surprising Comments on Racism in Hollywood

28 January 2015 2:00 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Besides being incredibly beautiful - and seemingly aging backwards - Gabrielle Union is insanely smart, too. The actress, who stars in the Bet series Being Mary Jane, got candid on everything from race relations in Hollywood to her marriage to NBA star Dwyane Wade during a recent interview with Yahoo. Gabrielle also expounded on Chris Rock's recent argument about the lack of movie and TV roles for people of color, saying, "They say, 'We just went with the best candidate,' but if you're never considered, you never have a chance," and opened up about the prevalent state of racism in the Us, specifically the recent high-profile deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner. In addition to her perceptive thoughts on current events, Gabrielle tackled some lighter topics as well - and you'll definitely want to know which of today's biggest stars she would cast in a remake of Bring It On. »

Gabrielle Union Recasts "Bring It On" With Today's Hottest Young Stars

28 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Brr it's cold in here, there must be some Clovers in the atmosphere!  It's been almost 15 years since cult-hit "Bring It On" was released, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten about the classic 2000's teen-comedy. And apparently neither has infamous Clovers cheerleader, Gabrielle Union.  In a recent interview with Yahoo Style, the "Being Mary Jane" star dished on who she thought could fill the shoes of the original cast members.   The movie follows a champion high school cheerleading squad that discovers their former captain stole all their winning routines from an inner-city school.  The 42-year-old actress was on point when she recast the movie with several of today's hottest young stars.  First, she picked Keke Palmer as her character, Clover captain, Isis.  Next, she chose Dakota Fanning as head Toros chearleader Torrance, played by Kirsten Dunst in the movie.  Last, and probably the most surprising recasting was Selena Gomez as bad-girl Missy, »

DVD Review: 'Very Good Girls'

24 January 2015 7:27 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Very Good Girls (2014) has all the trappings of an indie coming-of-age story: a hip soundtrack commandeered by musician Jenny Lewis; fresh-faced and innocent actresses; dreamy cinematography; just a dash of drama to appropriately weight the plot. This is all well and good but in a sea of films of this ilk, it gets drowned in its own good intentions. Naomi Foner's first outing as writer and director falls by the wayside very quickly, feeling like a exercise in derivative perceptions on what it means to become a woman. The narrative focuses on Lily (Dakota Fanning) and Gerry (Elizabeth Olsen) who are on their last summer vacation before college.

TVLine's Performer of the Week: Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars

The Performance | In the first two episodes of Parks‘ final season, Leslie finds herself going up against friend-turned-foe Ron Swanson. The problem? Ron’s competing against Leslie to obtain a whole lotta land. The other problem? Leslie has no money to offer the (already) wealthy Newports, making her chances of outbidding Ron fairly microscopic.

Watch: Emma Thompson's Long Delayed 'Effie Gray' Trailer Promises Feminist Period Spectacle

13 January 2015 6:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The release of "Effie Gray" was delayed for almost two years because of plagiarism lawsuits against the film's screenwriter (and co-star) Emma Thompson, who won an Academy Award for her adaptation of "Sense and Sensibility."  As The Playlist previously reported, "The period drama was completed 18 months ago, but the movie got bogged down in legal disputes, with two separate writers (Eve Pomerance and Gregory Murphy, who both wrote plays and existing screenplays on the subject) claiming the film leans too liberally on their existing works." These charges have since been dropped and the British biographical drama is her first adult-centric screenplay (having written both "Nanny McPhee" scripts) since the Oscar-winning "Sense and Sensibility." Directed by Richard Laxton ("An Englishman in New York"), the film stars Dakota Fanning as the titular character Euphemia "Effie" Gray, wife of great 19th century art »
