Kristen Stewart Talks Sexism in Hollywood: "It's a Really Ridiculous Thing to Say You're Not a Feminist"

13 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Unlike some of her peers, Kristen Stewart has a grasp on the foundations of feminism. Though it can be difficult to work in a "a male-dominated and -driven business," the Camp X-Ray actress says it's also "fun to be the underdog." Still, she would like to see more women working behind the lens. Stewart agrees with The Daily Beast's assessment that women in Hollywood are given fewer chances than their male counterparts. Twilight's Catherine Hardwicke, for example, had to release 2013's Plush via Video on Demand versus in theaters. "That's a thing that women have to do—you must persevere.

See New Movies By Adam McKay, Catherine Hardwicke and More For Free in a Theater This Month

8 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Going to the movies is expensive, and in this economy there’s less incentive than usual to make it to the multiplex just for a couple hours of entertainment, especially when so much of it is just reruns on the big screen (another Dracula, seriously?) — never mind all the other complaints you all have about the theatrical experience. The movies should be seen as a getaway from our troubles, just as they were for much of the Great Depression, but this time around we have so many other options to keep us distracted. Well, what if there was a movie playing in theaters for free? Yeah, you’ll still have to pay for a babysitter, gas, parking and concessions, if those things apply, but the main event costs you nothing on October 20th when you go out to see a bunch of new movies by Adam McKay (Anchorman), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Jon M.

Drew & Toni together at last!

8 October 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here catching up on a female-helmed, female-centered film coming our way in 2015 (one hopes!).

Have you guys heard about Miss You Already? The pic starting shooting in London just this past month and it stars none other than Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette. The film is directed by Catherine Hardwicke, whose filmography seems endlessly baffling to me: Thirteen (2003), Lords of Dogtown (2005), Nativity Story (2006), Twilight (2008), Red Riding Hood (2011), and something called Plush (2013; anyone seen it? IMDb tells me it stars Cam “Amos cookies” Gigandet). I mean, I know female directors have a hard time getting passion (or any other kind of) projects made, but can someone explain to me this set of films? I guess one could make a thorough-line about Hardwicke’s interest in young women’s lives, which makes Miss You Already an interesting departure.

The film centers on Milly and Jess “who have been best friends since childhood. »

Tyson Ritter Will Woo Drew Barrymore Or Toni Collette In Miss You Already

3 October 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Prior to watching the latest season of Parenthood, I had no idea who Tyson Ritter was. It turns out that I’m likely in the minority. He’s forged a successful career during his time as frontman for All-American Rejects, which has now led to him landing a few small acting gigs. On Parenthood, he played the singer of a band, which was not exactly a huge stretch. Now he’s set to work his acting muscle further, as he’s signed on to appear in British romcom Miss You Already.

Ritter will be heading out to London where the film has already begun its shoot, before production ventures up to the northern part of England. He’ll be joining as the love interest to either Drew Barrymore or Toni Collette, and is said to be “thrilled and humbled to be a part of this compelling project. To work with »

3 October 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are few aspects of modern life as crucial to the day-to-day of lives of Americans as the worldwide economic system, but with so many figures, numbers, and phrases thrown out in headlines and turned into soundbites, it can be difficult to understand what the conversation is really about.

Chu, Ramin Bahrani, Adrien Grenier, Lee Hirsch, Joe Berlinger, Jessica Yi, Barbara Kopple, Marshall Curry, Rachel Grady & Heidi Ewing, Bob Balaban, Albert Hughes, Miao Wang, Jehane Noujaim, Adam McKay, Shola Lynch, Steven James and Mary Harron, "We The Economy" is using some major names to help make the issues a whole lot easier to digest. Actors such as Kerry Bische, Judah Friedlander, Adam Goldberg, Patton Oswalt, Lili Taylor, Werner Herzog, and Isaiah Washington will appear in short. »

The Twilight Saga Set To Return In A Series Of Female-Directed Short Films

1 October 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Are you surprised? No, of course not! The Twilight Saga, that trend-setting Ya trilogy adaptation that brought in a colossal $3.5 million worldwide, is not over yet. The most astonishing part of today’s news is that Lionsgate waited nearly two years since the last instalment’s release to announce a series reboot.

Before you get all uppity, retire that tirade you’ve been saving for the next Twilight fan you are cornered by at a cosplay event. You know, the one you’ve been working on about the franchise’s damning effects on young women and how it sets back feminism about a hundred years. Yes. Put a leash on that rhetoric, because today’s press release from the studio is actually a very refreshing read.

The new five-part film series, entitled The Storytellers – New Creative Voices Of The Twilight Saga, will be a co-operative effort between Lionsgate and Women In Film. »

The 'Twilight' Saga Will Continue With New Short Films, Kristen Stewart And More Will Oversee

1 October 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I even planned out where it would go for a couple more books," "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer teased a couple of years ago about the further adventures of Edward, Bella and the rest. "So I know exactly what would happen, I mean there are a lot of characters I think would have a voice in those other stories. I don’t know, maybe I’ll write it out someday for myself.” While Twihards will have to wait for more full-length movies, Meyer is passing the baton to aspiring filmmakers to put their spin on the franchise. Lionsgate announced “The Storytellers – New Creative Voices of The Twilight Saga,” a "multiphase contest" (read: complicated) that will eventually see five female filmmakers direct shorts based on characters from "Twilight." A star-studded panel, including Meyer, Kristen Stewart, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Jennifer Lee, Catherine Hardwicke, Julie Bowen and Cathy Schulman, will select and help mentor the budding. »
