Andrew Rannells talks 'Hedwig' pressure, 'Girls' Broadway connections

16 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Broadway’s most exhilarating rock concert burst onto the boards earlier this year when Neil Patrick Harris stepped into the silky fishnets of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, earning a Tony for the role and ushering the East German rocker into the hands of a new generation of fans. After Harris departed the show in August, The Book of Mormon veteran Andrew Rannells was tapped to fill Hedwig’s high heels. To say his turn is electric, heartbreaking, and wholly different from Harris’ would still be underselling the performance.

Watch: Shailene Woodley Gets Nsfw In 2 Clips From 'White Bird In A Blizzard' Plus New Pics

12 September 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Shailene Woodley can afford to take risks. The actress first earned attention in Alexander Payne's "The Descendants," kept the buzz going with a tender turn in "The Spectacular Now" and proved she could sell tickets at the box office with the double whammy of "Divergent" and "The Fault In Our Stars" this year. So yes, the actress has been afforded some flexibility in her career choices, and coming up next is Gregg Araki's "White Bird In A Blizzard." The drama co-stars Eva Green, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Christopher Meloni and more, and follows a seventeen year-old girl whose life starts spinning out of control when her mother disappears. It's a dream-like movie (read our review), heavy on style and atmosphere, but also comes with a sharp, distinct tone. And you can see them in these two clips, which find Woodley and Green going head-to-head. "White Bird In A Blizzard »

Which 'SNL' star will go dramatic next? We've got pitches

12 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This weekend gives you two chances to see Bill Hader stretch his acting muscles. In dark comedy The Skeleton Twins, Hader and his former Saturday Night Live co-star Kristen Wiig play siblings who reunite after suicide attempts. Meanwhile, in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, Hader has a supporting role as the best friend of James McAvoy’s Conor, who is going through a pretty rough time in his relationship with Jessica Chastain’s titular character.

Saturday Night Live actors taking on dramatic—or, rather, serious—roles is nothing new. Wiig has steadily been putting films with weighty themes onto her resume, »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Craig Johnson’s Top Ten Films of All Time List

7 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Have you ever wondered what are the films that inspire the next generation of visionary filmmakers? As part of our monthly Ioncinephile profile (read this September), we ask the filmmaker the incredibly arduous task of identifying their top ten list of favorite films. Craig Johnson (who sees his The Skeleton Twins receive its theatrical release on September 12th) put together this top 10 (as of September 2014).

Carrie - Brian De Palma (1976)

“Freaky, funny, arty, beautiful, … and fucking scary. Sissy Spacek breaks your heart. And that seventies split screen action? Badass. This movie delivers on all levels at all times.”

ElectionAlexander Payne (1999)

“Every moment of this movie rings true. Painfully funny, painfully smart and so perfectly constructed. My sister and I quote it whenever we see each other. Might be a perfect film.”

The GraduateMike Nichols (1967)

“The look on Mrs. Robinson’s face when Benjamin leaves her in the hallway. »

Telluride: From ‘Birdman’ to ‘Mommy,’ Festival Soars Above the Fray

2 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: How was your Telluride, Scott? Mine was terrific — though I should note that I don’t really have a frame of reference, being a first-timer at this annual mountainside mecca for movie lovers. Still, I’m happy to report that just about everything I’ve heard is true: the unbeatable backdrop, the near-unbeatable films, above all that wondrous sense that the usual barriers separating filmmakers, journalists and audiences have magically melted away for one long weekend, uniting us all in one collective cinephile bliss-out. This is a festival where you’re as likely to pass Alexander Payne, Mike Leigh or the Dardenne brothers in the street as you are to make it into your next screening, and where a Megan Ellison sighting can send a momentary hush through a screening queue. (“You’re a rock star,” someone told her as we waited in line for Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater, »

One on One with Jon Stewart: Taking the jump from 'The Daily Show' to 'Rosewater'

31 August 2014 11:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — Mr. Stewart, if you read this article I believe the first few paragraphs may make you chuckle. Now, it's not because I'm a master wordsmith or unheralded comedic voice waiting to be discovered. No, after saying goodbye after our memorable interview on the patio of a Telluride restaurant Sunday afternoon, I turned and walked toward the street with my iPhone in hand. I'd stopped the recording of our chat and two choices appeared before me: delete or save. And, perhaps like a crazy person, I hit delete. Then I realized I hit delete. At that point, it was a mad dash back to my accommodations to jot down as much as I remembered from our conversation. Granted, this is something that has happened to the best reporters and journalists out there. Many times readers will read stories online or in print without realizing the content came from immediate memory. »

Telluride Film Festival 2014: Most Anticipated

26 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Main Street during The Telluride Film Festival

The Telluride Film Festival seemingly appears overnight against the gorgeous backdrop of rugged mountains. It lasts just four days but in fact it takes more than a month of intensive labor to transform the elementary school, high school, hockey rink, library, the park in the middle of town and a masonic temple into theaters. Now in its 41st year,up until recently this hallowed Labor Day weekend event has long been a quiet fixture on the festival circuit. As most of the festival world knows, the escalating word of mouth about the quality of Telluride’s unofficial premieres caused the Toronto International Film Festival to issue an ultimatum to those hoping to land choice spots in the fall line-up: if you choose to screen at Telluride first, your film will be pushed back on Tiff’s slate. Realistically- Toronto has little to fear from Telluride besides buzz. »

Macaulay Culkin and the Home Alone cast then & now

26 August 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin McCallister is all grown up now. Macaulay Culkin celebrates his 34th birthday today (August 26), so what better time to take a trip down memory lane to find out what happened to the cast of Culkin's greatest work: Home Alone.

Digital Spy goes 'then & now' with the cast of the comedy classic below...

Macaulay Culkin

The biggest child star of the '90s, Culkin spent almost a decade away from screen acting following 1994's Ri¢hie Ri¢h. After a stint on London's West End in Madame Melville, he returned to TV and film in 2003 with roles in Will & Grace and Party Monster. His acting parts since have been sparse - a 2010 Robot Chicken Christmas special is his last (voice only) credit - but Culkin seems to have found his calling as the frontman of a Velvet Underground pizza-themed cover band.

Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide Ending After 45 Years – Internet Kills Iconic Print Paperback

19 August 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Another print icon bites the dust.

Leonard Maltin’s 2015 Movie Guide will be the final edition of this film lovers’ guide, which started in 1969 under the title TV Movies. But in recent years, the annual guide, which now numbers 1,611 pages and features nearly 16,000 capsule movie reviews, has become a victim of the changing times and the way information is consumed by a new generation. The new edition, which comes out Sept. 2, is the last, bad news for many industry-ites and film lovers who used it religiously.

“An entire generation has been raised to acquire all their information online from their mobile devices or computers,” Maltin told me this morning. “These are not the likely customers for a physical paperback reference book. Our sales have sharply declined in recent years.”

The virtual death of bookstores likely didn’t help the cause either. “We still have a loyal readership,” Maltin said. “It »

The Essential Films & TV to Stream This Week – August 18th 2014

18 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.

From what I have seen so far it looks promising but then so did Hemlock Grove. Expect a full report next week. In related news, Netflix have announced a whole slate of stand-up comedy exclusive to its service after the success of the recent Aziz Ansari special. So the likes of Chelsea Handler, Jim Jefferies, Bill Cosby, Bill Burr and Chelsea Peretti will be adding stand up shows to streaming between now and December. I have only heard of a couple of these acts but there again one of the best things to do with an hour to spare is browse Netflix for its plentiful supply of stand-up »

Confusing a magazine coupon for a million-dollar lottery ticket, septuagenarian Woody (Bruce Dern) is hell-bent on heading 800 miles north to claim his winnings - even if it means walking.

How Reese Witherspoon could end up with three Oscar nominations this year

12 August 2014 7:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Eight and a half years ago, Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar. It came for her leading performance as June Carter in James Mangold's Johnny Cash biopic "Walk the Line." But things fell off after that for a little while. Gavin Hood's "Tsotsi" follow-up, "Rendition," went nowhere with audiences or critics. James L. Brooks' "How Do You Know" stalled. Francis Lawrence's "Water for Elephants" didn't really move the needle. Holiday rom-com "Four Christmases" and spy caper "This Means War" completely bottomed out. And then early last year, that unfortunate Atlanta arrest incident. But all the while, the actress, who has virtually grown up in the film industry, has been priming the pump with a few projects that will make it to screens this year. At the end of the season, she could well end up with as many as three Oscar nominations. The stage has truly been set for a career turnaround. »

The 86th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

I’m possibly going to be trying out a new series here. Essentially, today I’ll be going back and looking at the most recent Oscars and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories. Potentially, I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, so there’s a chance that this could turn into a long running thing. There are 86 of these to sift through after all…and counting. If nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of he year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Her The nominees here were 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Gravity, Her, Nebraska, Philomena, and The Wolf of Wall Street. »

Watch the color version of ‘Nebraska’ on cable (or don’t)

6 August 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If you’re a fan of Alexander Payne’s Oscar nominated Nebraska, you may have said to yourself, “I like this movie a lot, but I just wish I could watch it in a much worse, more generic and plain ruined format.”

Well now is your chance. The Playlist reports that the cable channel Epix is proudly promoting the world premiere of Nebraska, in full color. The film will air this Sunday August 10 at 10 Pm Et, just after a showing of the original version of Nebraska in black and white.

Granted, this isn’t CBS turning Humphrey Bogart’s suit powder blue so they can show Casablanca during Christmas. Due to negotiations in trying to get the film made, Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael was forced to shoot the film in digital, not black and white film stock, so a color version does exist. Payne even says it looks very good, but »
