Inside the Emmy Parties: Mptf’s Evening Before, Showtime, NBC, ICM Partners Cap Emmy Eve

25 August 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy Awards are on NBC at 5 p.m. Monday, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Sunday, Aug. 24:

11:55 a.m. ICM Partners’ annual brunch has become a welcome respite from the swirl of nighttime events on Emmy weekend. Waiters with cups of Sangria spiked with apple slices and grapes greeted guests on the steps of Chris Silbermann’s Santa Monica home. The brunch  was fantastic — fresh crepes made on the spot, blintzes, all manner of egg dishes and fruit. There’s a reason we skipped breakfast.

12:05 p.m. No ICM Partners brunch is complete without a chat with “Breaking Bad’s” Vince Gilligan and his rep Mark Gordon. Vince was cheery as usual with a pink shirt to match. He »

Kristen Stewart Completes Her "F*cking Real" Ice Bucket Challenge

21 August 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

After being nominated by her friend Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart completed the Als Ice Bucket Challenge with Nicholas Hoult and Scott Fahrendorf on Thursday. The trio made sure to put a personal spin on the task; they literally took the plunge by dunking their heads in buckets of freezing-cold water before pouring them out over themselves. Nicholas and Scott then dumped a larger bucket on Kristen's head. After gathering her composure, she nominated singer Jenny Lewis and actress Brie Larson, whom she recently starred alongside in the video for Jenny's song "Just One of the Guys." At the end of the clip, Kristen tells viewers that their stunt was done with dirty bathwater, adding, "Please be considerate of California water conservation." Watch Kristen's Ice Bucket Challenge above, and then be sure to check out all the other celebrities who have taken the challenge as well. »

Kristen Stewart & Nicholas Hoult's Ice Bucket Challenge Is a Little Different (Video)

21 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are the latest celebs to join the Als Ice Bucket Challenge craze, and posted a video in which they not only douse themselves with water, but stick their heads in their full buckets for good measure.

The clip features "Equals" co-stars Stewart and Hoult, alongside friend Scott Fahrendorf, calling out Anne Hathaway (who nominated Stewart), then dunking their heads in their buckets before pouring the contents over their entire bodies. Hoult and Fahrendorf then dump an even larger bucket onto the sopping wet Stewart.

After the stunt, Stewart nominated her pals Jenny Lewis and Brie Larson (with whom she recently starred in the music video for Lewis's tune "Just One of the Guys"), as well as her "Equals" costar Jacki Weaver. Hoult nominated a trio of former costars: Craig Roberts ("Kill Your Friends"), Joe Dempsie ("Skins"), and Colin Firth ("A Single Man"). They also urged »

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part Two: Bj Colangelo

13 August 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Like Jerry’s installment yesterday, I too tend to write with a playlist blasting in the background.  As a musical theatre performer and a former coffee-shop cover singer, music plays a major part in my life.  My music tastes are all over the board, but my writing playlists tend not to really click with what most people would assume is played when analyzing horror films.  My favorite bands aren’t even on this list, because my “writing mix” is very specific to my writing process.  It’s weird. I almost can’t listen to my all time favorite bands when I write because then I become distracted. I love finding new and undiscovered talents and I’m a sucker for female covers, but most of my songs are, well, you be the judge. -Bj Colangelo

2015 Oscar Predictions: First Look at the Best Supporting Actress Category

5 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Considering I have 23 contenders in my 2015 Oscar predictions for Best Supporting Actress at this moment and the fact I've only seen two of the movies those 23 actresses star in, I think it's safe to say these are rather wild spit-ball predictions at this moment. However, we have to start somewhere and in that sense, it's probably no surprise one of the two performances I've actually seen tops my first look at the category. At #1 I have Patricia Arquette for her performance in Boyhood. It's a pick many will probably consider ridiculous considering IFC hardly has a budget to mount a serious Oscar campaign, but this is a film and a performance we can keep alive as fans of the film. Critics, commenters and film fans alike can help show support for what will undoubtedly be one of the best performances of the year. Will it be the best in the »

5 Things I Learned About Selling Films from Selling Fashion on eBay

1 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hope for Film | See recent Hope for Film news »

If you asked me how I came to the film world and I told you I essentially started by selling vintage clothing on eBay, you would probably think I answered the wrong question. This myopic line of thinking is exactly why you might think it’s hard to make, sell, and distribute a film. When I started selling on eBay 10 years ago, it was like the Wild Wild West – there were no instruction manuals or established models for success. I was trying to figure out how to sell something that my customers couldn’t touch or feel (or even see that well, as I still had no idea how to operate a camera).

The new world of independent film is looking more and more like this uncharted territory everyday. With existing consumption patterns becoming outdated, crowdfunding emerging as the new normal, and myriad new digital distribution models developing, there’s »

Kristen Stewart Catches the Travel Bug Again

25 July 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kristen Stewart continued her busy travels with a flight out of Lax on Thursday. The actress showed off her new short haircut again while walking around the airport, which her stylist revealed was a last-minute decision made just two hours before she debuted it at the Chanel Haute Couture show a few weeks ago. Kristen has been all over the world in the past few months, flying to NYC for the Met Gala and then to France for the Cannes Film Festival in May, with trips home to La in between. And her haircut isn't the only reason Kristen has been turning heads recently - she also dressed up in drag with Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson for a music video and showed off her sexy side in the new Clouds of Sils Maria trailer this month. »

Keeping cinema's surprises

In this week's column, James looks at the tricky task of retaining movie surprises in modern cinema...

Feature

"Please, accept the mystery..." Mr Park, A Serious Man.

Last week I went to the cinema. I booked my ticket in advance and reserved a place at a screening. So far this story isn't very unusual, but bear with me because there are surprises in store. Or, at least, there were surprises in store. And there are also surprises coming up in this column because it's all about surprises. Whoa, it's Bill Murray! There. That was a surprise.

Anyway, I go to the cinema a lot and normally I know what I'm going to see. This kind of prior knowledge is useful and has practical benefits. For instance, you know when you need to arrive, whether you want to invite anyone else or whether you need to adjust your clothing or mood »

Watch: Elizabeth Olsen Sings Rilo Kiley's "Go Ahead" In Clip From 'Very Good Girls'

23 July 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's a good month to be a Jenny Lewis fan. The actress turned singer has a new album out next week, Voyager, and the first video featured none other than Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson (watch it here). And already on VOD, and opening in theatres this weekend, is the indie "Very Good Girls," starring Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, and featuring an original score by Lewis. In addition, the musician taught Olsen how to play "Go Ahead" by her former band Rilo Kiley for the film, and this new clip shows how it turned out. "[Elizabeth Olsen] plays a young songwriter, so I chose a very old Rilo Kiley song for her to sing, because it felt conceivable that a young artist like her would write it," Lewis told Elle. "My friend Todd gave her guitar lessons, and she picked it up so fast! She’s a better finger-picker than I am now. »

Amy Schumer Cracks Up In First Trainwreck Image

21 July 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most side-splitting comedians on the scene today, Amy Schumer has been dominating the small screen since last April thanks to her hilarious Comedy Central sketch series Inside Amy Schumer, and now it may be time for her to make the leap from TV talent to Hollywood star. Schumer previously had a supporting role in the little-seen Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, but Judd Apatow is working with her at the moment on Trainwreck, a comedy conceived as a starring vehicle for Schumer, who also wrote the script.

We don’t know that much about Trainwreck yet (that behind-the-scenes image above is our first look at the film), but it’s set to focus on “a commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways.” Schumer reportedly drew from her real-life experiences for the movie, and it covers a lot of the same socially relevant, »

First Look at Judd Apatow's Trainwreck Comedy

19 July 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Thanks to NY Times, we now have the first photo from the set of the upcoming "Trainwreck" comedy, which is directed by Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40 Year Old Virgin). Check it out below. While Apatow usually writes his own scripts, this time, the script is provided by Amy Schumer, who has gained popularity thanks to her Comedy Central show "Inside Amy Schumer." She not only wrote the script, but is starring in the film alongside Bill Hader, Daniel Radcliffe, Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Ezra Miller, LeBron James, and Method Man. We don't know too much about the plot, but it's been said that Schumer plays "a basket case who tries to rebuild her life." The new movie is set to hit theaters on July 24th, 2015.

Amy Schumer and Bill Hader Share a Laugh in First 'Trainwreck' Photo

18 July 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This photo has to be staged, right? Spotted on the set of Trainwreck, director Judd Apatow breaks into a hearty laugh with his leading lady Amy Schumer and her on-screen boy toy Bill Hader. This will be the first movie Judd Apatow has directed that he has not written himself. The story comes from stand-up comedian Schumer, who bases it on her own real life. It should slide in nicely next to Funny People, which found Apatow using comedians as a backdrop to tell a much darker story.

Trainwreck, based on the personal life of Amy Schumer, follows a commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways. Director Judd Apatow claims he had the comedian come at the material as though she were engaged in a therapy session, helping her to dig deep into her own vulnerabilities as a woman.

First Image from Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck' Starring Amy Schumer

18 July 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I first caught Amy Schumer's stand-up just scrolling through Spotify and in small doses she's pretty damned funny. I haven't yet seen her show on Comedy Central, but I've been meaning to give it a look and now she's moving on up to the big time, starring in Judd Apatow's latest movie Trainwreck alongside Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Tilda Swinton and a load of cameo appearances of varying size including Daniel Radcliffe, Colin Quinn, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Vanessa Bayer, Method Man, LeBron James, John Cena and Ezra Miller. Today we get the first look behind the scenes via the above picture from the New York Times. The "Times" piece reveals Schumer penned the original script, but she and Apatow teamed after hearing her on the "Howard Stern Show" and got in touch with her to bounce some ideas off one another: They abandoned her original idea -- »

The prospect of Amy Schumer writing and starring in a feature film is awesome.

First Look at Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck

18 July 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first Trainwreck image from director Judd Apatow’s next feature has arrived.  Unlike his previous directorial efforts, Apatow didn’t write the script for Trainwreck—the film’s star, Amy Schumer did.  Schumer has gained notoriety for her hilarious and socially conscious sense of humor on her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer, but Trainwreck puts her front and center as the star of a major studio film.  The story, which draws heavily from Schumer’s real-life experiences, revolves around “a commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways.”  Apatow tells the New York Times that when working on the screenplay, he pushed the comic to dig into her own vulnerabilities, “almost like a therapist thing.”  As if the promise of a Schumer-fronted comedy wasn’t enough, the versatile Bill Hader plays her character’s potential love interest in the film.  Very promising stuff.

These Actresses Are Just One of the Guys

16 July 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

abstew here. This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of the my favorite movies growing up, Troop Beverly Hills. (I mistakenly thought the woman with curly red hair on the VHS cover was my beloved Bette Midler, but when I realized it wasn't, I loved the movie too much to care and made my parents rent it at least once a month.) But all those times I watched those Wilderness Girls singing about the virtues of Cookie Time, I never thought that the actress playing Shelley Long's daughter, Hannah Nefler, would grow up to be my absolute favorite singer/songwriter Jenny Lewis. She writes the songs that make me remember that I have feelings. If you opened my chest it would be in the shape of Jenny Lewis.

Watch Kristen Stewart, Brie Larson and Anne Hathaway Become 'Just One of the Guys'

15 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Jenny Lewis got a little help from her friends promoting her new album The Voyager, which releases on July 29. Kristen Stewart, Brie Larson and Anne Hathaway joined the singer-songwriter in the music video for “Just One of the Guys.” We’re sorely disappointed that Lewis didn’t take this opportunity to pay homage to the endlessly entertaining 1985 Lisa Gottlieb comedy, also called Just One of the Guys. However, we’re treated to Stewart and company in Adidas-clad B-Boy drag — and the Twilight actress even smiles a little bit. The video is all fun and games, but the song itself has a somber tone to it. Lewis has contributed music to indie films Very Good Girls and Song One (which starred Hathaway), so it’s nice to see her continue a...
