TheGrill 2016: Watch Cameron Crowe Go Behind the Scenes of Iconic Rock Photos

26 September 2016 9:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The final session on Monday at TheWrap’s TheGrill conference was a snap: Filmmaker Cameron Crowe discussed a handful iconic music photographs with legendary rock photographers Joel Bernstein and Neal Preston. Crowe and the two photographers gathered at the Montage Beverly Hills to discuss the ins and outs of a series of 1960s and ’70s pictures of stars like Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Page and Marvin Gaye, recapturing some of the magic that led to those fleeting flashes of serendipity. The first image they brought up was Bernstein’s shot of late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury gesticulating on stage at London’s Wembley Stadium. »

Film Review: ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’

5 September 2016 4:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hapless London-based media type Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) returns to the big screen after a 12-year break to battle unexpected pregnancy, twentysomething hipsters and, once more, the perils of live TV in 'Bridget Jones's Baby.' With our heroine now a successful single producer in her 40s, the pic’s three writers have thought carefully about what that might mean for her, resulting in a sincere effort that could perhaps have done with a few more really sharp gags. Still, it’s a pleasant enough change from the irrational, wildly overwritten jealousy that drove the plot of 2004’s largely woeful second film, 'Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.' Brand awareness and the nostalgia value of the franchise returning after a decade-plus gestation period should translate to a healthy delivery for the godparents of this 'Baby,' Universal and Working Title.

Indeed, Bridget is back… and this time she’s eating for two! »

Jerry Heller, Ex-Manager for N.W.A, Passes Away at 75

3 September 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the world's most infamous music managers has passed away today. Jerry Heller, born Gerald Heller, was 75 years old at the time of his death. He reportedly died of a heart attack late Friday evening, passing at Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, California.

Heller was the ex-music manager for N.W.A. He was famously played by Paul Giamatti in last summer's late August blockbuster Straight Outta Compton. It was a performance that Heller himself found quite hurtful. Jerry Heller's cousin Gary Ballen confirmed the news of the man's passing to Billboard.

Jerry Heller was in his mid-40s when he became involved with N.W.A's Easy-e and the label Ruthless Records. His efforts with the band help establish hardcore and gangsta rap as a new genre in Hip-Hop. He didn't like his portrayal in Straight Outta Compton so much, he decided to sue the makers behind the film. »

"Blurred Lines" Appeal Gets Support From More Than 200 Musicians

30 August 2016 6:14 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

When Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke first launched a lawsuit three years ago to protect "Blurred Lines" from claims of having ripped off Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up," there was a sentiment expressed in the court papers that evoking an earlier era and making a work that's reminiscent of a sound shouldn't be judged to be a copyright infringement. Throughout the litigation, from explosive depositions to a jury's huge verdict, that concern has lingered for some artists, composers and producers who have watched the proceedings from afar. Now, they are getting their own chance to speak up

Review: 'Southside With You' turns the Obamas' first date into something larger

25 August 2016 6:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First dates aren’t easy. There are so many variables that go into determining whether or not something is a “good” date that it’s impossible to control. If I’ve learned anything about dating during my 46 years on Earth (and that is debatable), I have learned that you have to give yourself up to it if it’s going to work at all. You cannot force a good date. You can only go into it open to whatever experience you’re going to have, and to whoever the person is that you’re spending that time with. On the surface, Southside With You is simply a film about a first date, opening with both people getting ready and ending as they say goodnight and head their own ways again. In this particular case, the first date is noteworthy because it’s between Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson, the future »

‘Blurred Lines’ Appeal: Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams Cite ‘Cascade of Legal Errors’ in Trial

24 August 2016 2:09 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Get ready for another verse in the battle over “Blurred Lines.” “Blurred” writers Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris Jr. (a.k.a. T.I.) filed their opening brief in the appeal on Tuesday, claiming that a “cascade of legal errors” marred the initial trial. In a controversial verdict last year, a jury ordered Williams and Thicke to pay $7.4 million, after determining that their 2013 song infringed on the 1977 Marvin Gaye tune “Got to Give It Up.” Also Read: Robin Thicke Blasts 'Blurred Lines' Verdict: 'I Would Never Steal' The new brief, filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, »

The Lrm Interview: Stellan Skarsgård And Hans Peter Moland On In Order Of Disappearance

18 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Stellan Skarsgård has been one of Sweden’s hardest working acting exports for many years, but his recognition in the States may have reached a new high when he was cast as Dr. Erik Selvig in Marvel StudiosThor in 2000. Ever since then, the Marvel Universe has been keeping Skarsgård busy, but not enough to have him turn down his good friend, Norwegian filmmaker Hans Peter Moland, when he comes to Skarsgård with a role.

Skarsgård plays Nils, a quiet snowplow driver in the middle of a snow-covered section of Norway in Moland’s new film In Order of Disappearance, his main responsibility being to remove snow from a long strip of road that connects the towns. When Nils’ son turns up dead, he starts going after the men responsible, leading him to an outlandish crime lord known as “The Count,” who is also interested in finding those responsible for taking out his men. »
