Adam DeVine Throws Shade at Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick’s Best Kiss MTV Award Nomination

27 April 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Adam DeVine isn’t afraid to kiss and tell — particularly when it comes to his movie make out with Rebel Wilson, which he claims was much better than Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick’s.

“Zac and Anna’s kiss was cute, but Rebel and myself ooze sex appeal,” Devine, the host of the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards,  tells People. “There is no competition.”

Devine’s Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates co-stars Efron and Kendrick are following in his footsteps with a nomination for Best Kiss at the show this year — an award he won with Wilson in 2016 for their work in Pitch Perfect 2. »

Wedding Week: Big Q, Easy A: Wedding Dress Codes and What They All Really Mean

18 April 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There’s nothing more exciting than opening an invitation to a friend or loved one’s wedding – and frequently nothing more confusing than decoding that tiny line that states the dress code. “White Tie,” “Black Tie,” “Black Tie Optional,” “Casual,” “Festive,” “Beach Chic,” what does it all mean? We’ve teamed up with wedding expert and Say Yes to the Dress star Randy Fenoli, who just launched his own line of bridal gowns, to break it all down.

Some Important Dos and Don’ts:

·      Never wear white to a wedding unless it’s an all-white wedding

Death to All Vampires: The Evolution of Kristen Stewart

10 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

From the shadows of a shallow franchise to the peak of cinematic brilliance.

I’m a little ashamed to say I didn’t see it at first.

I knew who Kristen Stewart was before Twilight happened — she’s the daughter from Panic Room — but whatever I thought of her acting skills was swept under the rug of her immediate and immense popularity on account of that vampire crap. It was like 1997 and the year of DiCaprio all over again. No one that popular could be worth a damn, I naively thought, that’s just some teeny-bopper shit. So yeah, I wrote her off, I thought of her as just another starry-eyed, fame-seeking, Hollywood girl-bot, more fodder for romantic comedies and redemptive domestic dramas, a slightly-better Jennifer Garner, or a slightly-worse Anna Kendrick.

But then I saw Clouds of Sils Maria.

And now I stand before you a humbled convert. Not only was everything I thought about Kristen Stewart »

Table 19 review

10 April 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's our look at wedding reception comedy-drama Table 19, starring Anna Kendrick, Craig Robinson and Lisa Kudrow...

Back in the early days of my online film geekdom, I used to take part in a fantasy film league, inspired by fantasy sports leagues. You take the role of a producer and using your budget for the season, you choose six stars to be in your made-up film. The box office returns of that film are then determined by the real life box office successes of those stars throughout the season.

Table 19 could have been cast in much the same way as you'd cast one of those fantasy films. »

Jake Johnson Talks ‘Win It All,’ His Scorsese/De Niro Relationship With Joe Swanberg, And More

8 April 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When Jake Johnson met director Joe Swanberg for the first time, he had no idea that this meeting would start what has so far been a fruitful and highly creative actor-director partnership. The fact that “Drinking Buddies” turned out to be their first movie helped a lot. The 2013 film, starring Johnson, Anna Kendrick and Olivia Wilde, has become the blueprint example of how good Swanberg’s style can be when everything just clicks.

Table 19 Review

7 April 2017 4:37 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Linda Marric

On paper, Table 19 looks like a sure bet for an hour and a half of harmless mischief and silly shenanigans. A group of strangers find themselves at the same wedding reception and must make the best of their night despite being made to sit at the “losers table”. What’s not to like, right? In reality, this unimaginatively lame and thoroughly amateurish production brings absolutely nothing new, or even old to the romantic comedy genre, and winds up looking cheap, messy and almost instantly forgettable.

At the last minute Eloise (Anna Kendrick) decides to attend the wedding of her oldest friend who also happens to be the sister of Teddy (Wyatt Russell), the man who broke up with her two months earlier. Things get complicated when she finds herself sat at the worst table in the room alongside a group of unwanted guests who should have »

Anna Kendrick – From Table 19 To The Top Table

7 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Anna Kendrick has packed plenty into her 10-year Hollywood career, going from supporting actress to leading lady in an impressively short time. She arguably hit her (to date) high point rather too soon – her excellent supporting work in the matchless Up in the Air garnering her richly deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination – but it would be a huge simplification and over-statement to claim it has been downhill ever since.

The imperious Up In The Air was by no means Kendrick’s first role but it is the very definition of a break-out role, marking her out as a talent to watch. She demonstrated versatility, strength, vulnerability, intelligence, nuance and comedy chops, holding her own opposite Clooney despite her relatively tender years. Either side of Up In The Air, Kendrick popped up throughout the Twilight saga, was relatively unremarkable in films like 50/50 and What To Expect When »

Logan And Get Out Lead The MTV Movie & TV Awards Nominations

6 April 2017 4:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s only April, but already, 2017 has brought with it some terrific films and TV shows, several of which will be receiving honors from MTV, as the company looks to shower praise upon the best of the best with their annual awards show, which has received a name change. Instead of just being called The MTV Movie Awards, they’re now known as The MTV Movie & TV Awards.

Leading the pack in terms of theatrical offerings are Logan and Get Out – easily two of the year’s best films so far – while the small screen nominations find Game of Thrones and Atlanta with the lion’s share of the attention. So, not too many surprises then. At least, not when it comes »

MTV Movie & TV Awards Nominations Full List: ‘Get Out’ Tops Nominees; Show Goes Gender-Blind for Acting

6 April 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first-ever MTV Movie & TV Awards is already setting itself apart from the other awards ceremonies with two bold moves. The first is to go gender-blind when it comes to the acting categories; men and women won’t be segregated, but rather in competition with each other. That means you’ll get some very interesting matchups like “Atlanta’s” Donald Glover taking on the Khaleesi herself, Emilia Clarke from “Game of Thrones.”

Combining the gendered categories has been a debate for years, especially when it comes to performance-based achievements. The Television Critics Association doesn’t make a gendered distinction, instead lauding someone by genre such as Individual Achievement in Comedy. Of the bigger awards shows, the Grammys ditched the gendered categories a few years ago, opting for unisex titles such as Best Pop Solo Performance.

Marvel’s New Warriors With Squirrel Girl Getting A Straight-To-Series Order From Freeform

5 April 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Like its parent company Disney, Marvel is slowly gearing up to take over the world. Their ascent to the top began with the ambitious Marvel Studios film universe that kicked off with Iron Man back in 2008. From there, it expanded its reach into ABC with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter before hopping into Netflix with its more grounded, street-level heroes like Daredevil and Luke Cage. So if you’re keeping track, they have general audiences with film and ABC, older audiences with Netflix, so one extra demographic they can exploit more fully lies in the young adult segment.

That’s where Freeform comes into play. For those who don’t know, Freeform is the new iteration of ABC Family that launched last year. Rather than focus on the whole family, they have shifted their focus on young adult, or as they call them, “becomers.” The general idea is that »

New Warriors TV Show Ordered Straight To Series At Freeform

5 April 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Marvel’s roster of Netflix original series tends to steal all the limelight – The Defenders, for instance, just planted the flag on a late summer premiere date – the studio has been making serious headway on a variety of other small screen projects.

From Runaways to The Inhumans to Freeform’s Cloak and Dagger, Marvelites will soon find themselves a little spoilt for choice, and The Hollywood Reporter brings word of a new addition to the fold. It’s called New Warriors, and will herald the TV debut of Squirrel Girl (Aka Doreen Green), the fan-favorite hero that was once linked with Pitch Perfect stalwart Anna Kendrick. Not only that, but Edgar Wright and the Russo Brothers were among those lobbying for Kendrick to land the gig.

Securing the services of an A-lister in the vein of Anna Kendrick may prove to be too much of a stretch for Marvel’s latest TV series, »
