TCM: Anna Kendrick ♥s "The Women" (So do we.)

18 April 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's Diana's last report from the TCM Film Festival which closed this weekend. One more from Anne Marie is coming up and it's a wrap. Take it away, Diana...

Ben & Anna Kendrick at The Women screening

In one of the few overlaps in our Tcmff schedule, Anne Marie and I sat down for the all-star classic The Women (1939). We've both watched the film a countless number of times - it's such a treat. The El Capitan organist played a variety of film standards (including the Star Wars theme) as we chuckled and waited for the introduction. The cherry on top? Anna Kendrick, cool girl exemplar, was the special guest, there to introduce the comedy classic alongside TCM stalwart (and object of many TCM fangirls’ affections) Ben Mankiewicz.

 Walking out on stage, Kendrick sported a chic yet casual look with a black tee, black skinny jeans and black heeled boots paired »

Photos of Ryan Reynolds and Gemma Arterton in The Voices

14 April 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I’m not super into traditional horror, but I enjoy horror comedy — like Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil and Cabin in the Woods, for example. Director Marjane Satrapi’s The Voices isn’t quite horror, but it’s dark, it’s bloody, and there are some laughs. Did I mention it was dark? I caught the movie earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival where it received mostly positive reviews. I was hoping to embrace this film, but it was mainly just disturbing, unsettling, and sad — despite its colorful displays of whimsy. It also felt much longer than its 1hr. 47 min. run time. Much, much longer.

Empire has released two new images from The Voices featuring Ryan Reynolds and Gemma Arterton. Reynolds stars as Jerry Hickfang, “a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting (Arterton). When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, »

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Did Seth Rogen play it too safe? -- Vote

14 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Perhaps Seth Rogen’s latest Saturday Night Live episode wasn’t especially inspired: it opened with the requisite weed jokes, made fun of his oft-imitated laugh, and leaned on some unnecessary celebrity cameos. But if you love Rogen’s slacker comedy, maybe that was exactly what you tuned in for. At least he didn’t tap dance or juggle torches to prove that he’s not just a funny guy.

Voters in our ongoing third annual Mr. Saturday Night contest will have to decide whether Rogen played it too safe for a guy who was hosting for the third time, »

Two New Images from The Voices Starring Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterton, and Jacki Weaver

11 April 2014 6:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the films I'm really bummed I missed at this year's Sundance Film Festival was Marjane Satrapi's The Voices.  Per the Sundance synopsis, "This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry’s evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation."  In his review, Adam called the film, "joyously, unabashedly out of its mind," and these images back that opinion up.  Now I want to see this movie even more. Hit the jump to check out The Voices images.  The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterton, and Jacki Weaver.  Currently, the film has no release date. Via Empire.
