Appearing on Access Hollywood Live alongside her Catfight costar Anne Heche, cohosts Kit Hoover and Natalie Morales asked Oh if she’d return to Grey’s Anatomy, where she starred for 10 seasons as Dr. Cristina Yang. “At this point… No, I don’t think so,” she admitted.
When further pushed if she would consider coming back when the ABC drama eventually wraps up, she shared that she has had a conversation with creator »

There’s nothing like watching a couple of old school friends beating the hell out of each other to completely de-stress right? That’s exactly what you get in the trailer for Catfight when the claws come out and it’s all out war between these vixens until the roles are reversed and they go right back at it again.
Written and Directed by Turkish-American filmmaker Onur Tuke, who wrote and directed 2014’s vampire comedy Summer of Blood, brings his touch of black comedy to Catfight with an intriguing premise. Starring Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh (Sideways) and Seven Days Seven Nights and Donnie Brasco star Anne Heche, who go at it like Mike Tyson and Frank Bruno on a bad day. The ladies deliver a knockout punch in the trailer making this look like riotous and mindless fun.
Providing some much-needed backup is Alicia Silverstone as Ashley’s lesbian love interest, »

In this action comedy, two former college friends, who now find themselves in very different walks of life, meet up at a fancy cocktail party: Veronica (Sandra Oh) has become the entitled, wine-loving wife of a rich businessman, while Ashley (Anne Heche), along with her lover Lisa (Alicia Silverstone), struggles to make ends meet as an artist.

With the ongoing discussions about Donald Trump wanting to construct a wall between Mexico and the Unites States, Sam Wainwright Douglas’ latest documentary, “Through the Repellent Fence: A Land Art Film,” is more relevant than ever.
The film follows Postcommodity, an interdisciplinary arts collective comprised of Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martinez and Kade L. Twist, who put land art in a tribal context. The group bring together a community to construct the Repellent Fence, a two-mile long ephemeral monument “stitching” together the Us and Mexico. The documentary shows how in 2015 they were helped by people on both sides of the border to install a series of 26 huge inflatable spheres emblazoned with an insignia known as the “open eye” that has existed in Indigenous cultures from South America to Canada for thousands of years.

“Contemporary Color” is a documentary about David Bryne’s interest in color guard and his performance project that led to a spectacular 2015 show. Directed by documentarian siblings Bill and Turner Ross, the film follows Byrne as he recruits artists such as Dev Hynes, Nelly Furtado and St. Vincent to write original music for the project and invites various color guard groups from around the country to perform routines to the music.
Now ahead of its March release, Oscilloscope Laboratories has released the first trailer for the musical journey. The clip shows a group of color guard members finding out that they’ve been selected to perform at the event, it also features the athletes rehearsing and taking the stage on the big night.
“I thought it was an incredible art form that was being made,” Bryne told IndieWire about what drew him to this esoteric field. “New Yorkers and lots »

Two former college friends, played by Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) and Anne Heche (Hung), engage in a brawl that will consume their lives for years to come in the first trailer for Catfight. Check out the funny and violent trailer here…
Last year, the action comedy emerged out of the Toronto International Film Festival with relatively positive reception from critics; most reviews for the film praised the two lead performances and action scenes but weren’t entirely fond of the film’s more satirical elements.
In this action comedy, two former college friends, who now find themselves in very different walks of life, meet up at a fancy cocktail party: Veronica (Sandra Oh) has become the entitled, wine-loving wife of a rich businessman, while Ashley (Anne Heche), along with her lover Lisa (Alicia Silverstone), struggles to make ends meet as an artist.

Grey’s Anatomy may be humming along in its 13th season, but there is one beloved character fans have been hoping to see back in the Grey-Sloan scrubs -- and they’re not alone.
Jason George, who plays Ben Warren on ABC’s hit medical drama, dropped by Et’s Burbank studios on Thursday, and waxed poetic about possibly bringing back former co-star Sandra Oh, who portrayed fan favorite Cristina Yang.
“I would love nothing more than for Sandra Oh to come back. She is just a beast of an actress,” George, 44, told Et. “And any time she’s around, we have more fun and things just get better.”

Anne Heche and Sandra Oh beating the shit out of each other is no longer just an obscure fetish. It’s also the premise for a new black comedy from director Onur Turkel, director of Applesauce and Summer Of Blood. Turkel’s movies often revolve around devastatingly ironic twists, and the twist here is that Veronica (Oh), a trophy wife married to a war contractor, wakes up broke and abandoned after a stairwell brawl with Ashley (Anne Heche), a former college classmate and part-time caterer who’s humiliated when she discovers that the party she’s working is being thrown by Veronica’s husband. Meanwhile, Ashley’s art career has taken off in the two years since the fight, while Veronica laid in a coma. Will this dramatic reversal of fortunes lead to more bloody noses and ripped-out hair? From the looks of this trailer, yes.

Recently named one of our favorite films of 2016 without distribution, we said, “Who knew that one of the year’s most potent representations of America’s addiction to abrasive conflict would be Anne Heche and Sandra Oh beating each other to a pulp? Onur Tukel’s Catfight is an unabashedly silly and political film, but it’s also a funny one, with its two lead actresses literally and figuratively hurling themselves into their roles.”
Thankfully it’s taken little time for the film to acquire distribution and it’ll arrive sooner than expected, in early March, and the first trailer has now landed. In the film, Heche and Oh play former college friends who bump into each other years later on the opposite sides of society — one is a struggling artist, while the other is married to a filthy rich Wall Street worker — and the tensions between them eventually boil over into a giant brawl. »

Indie fave Onur Tukel takes a big step up in cast profile with his Anne Heche / Sandra Oh / Alicia Silverstone starring comedy Catfight, but anyone fearing that the Applesause and Summer Of Blood director may have toned down his particular style to bring the names on board will be very happy indeed with the just released trailer for the indie comedy. Because Tukel is clearly as quirky as ever. Wealthy wine lover Veronica Salt (Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy, Sideways) and struggling outsider artist Ashley Chambers (Anne Heche, Hung, Psycho, Six Days Seven Nights) were close in college, but haven’t seen each other since. When they find themselves attending the same glitzy birthday party, verbal barbs lead to fisticuffs and an all-out brawl that...

Jayne Mansfield was an American actress, singer and entertainer who was one of Hollywood’s biggest sex symbols of the ‘50s and ‘60s. She was known for her hunger for publicity, her questionable affair with Anton Lavey, head of the Church of Satan, and her fatal car crash in 1967.
Now 50 years after her legendary accident, filmmakers P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes have created “Mansfield 66/67,” a documentary about the last two years of Mansfield’s life and the speculation that her untimely death was caused by her alleged affair with Lavey and a curse that was placed on her.
The film is based on rumor and hearsay and asks the questions: “Was her life spinning out of control in the last two years of her life, or…did the devil make her do it?”

When a trailer opens with Sandra Oh saying, “Whatever, Jesus drank wine,” it’s a good sign. But the wink to “Sideways” fans quickly gives way to something closer to a Todd Solondz movie as the bizarre world of “Catfight,” comes into focus.
Oh and Heche play contentious former classmates in Onur Tukel’s bizarre surrealist satire. At the film’s start, Veronica (Oh) lives in the lap of luxury with her war profiteer husband and artistic son. Ashley (Heche) is a struggling artist, who relies on her partner (Alicia Silverstone) and a dead end catering gig to make ends meet. When Veronica sees Ashley behind the bar at a party her husband is throwing, she hardly looks up from her phone long enough to remark, “Jesus, you look like someone I went to college with.”
