Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox and More Speak Out on Trump’s Lift of Bathroom Protections for Trans Students

23 February 2017 8:09 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After President Donald Trump withdrew guidelines issued to public schools in defense of transgender rights on Wednesday, celebrities took to social media to sound off against the motion.

The protection, set by former President Barack Obama in May 2016, allowed students to choose which bathroom and locker room to use based on their gender identity. Gender identity, Obama’s administration said, is a civil rights and equality issue.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a press briefing Tuesday that Trump believes the issue should be left to the states to decide.

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

22 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop.  Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »

'My Life as a Zucchini' Review: Oscar-Nominated Animated Movie Will Floor You

22 February 2017 8:21 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If you're wondering about that movie with the funny title – the one nominated for an Academy Award as Best Animated Feature against such biggies as Zootopia and Moana – here it is. My Life as a Zucchini is a French-language stop-motion cartoon, blessed with both a Swiss director (Claude Barras), and an ambition not to do anything the conventional way. As if the story of a nine-year-old orphan named Courgette – that's French for zucchini – who's sent to a group home after the death of his alcoholic mother, could be considered even slightly conventional. »

Originally titled in French “Ma vie de Courgette,” the Swiss film tells the story of a blue-haired 9-year-old boy who prefers to be called Courgette (French for zucchini) instead of his birth name of Icare. After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is taken to a foster home filled with other orphans his age. At first, Zucchini struggles to fit in this strange and even hostile environment, where other kids pick on him.

‘My Life as a Zucchini’ Director Is Part of Small Group of Foreign Stop-Motion Animators

16 February 2017 9:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy’s animation branch regularly shows love for foreign-language films, and the Oscar nomination of “My Life as a Zucchini” is a striking example. Claude Barras’ feature debut about orphaned children is notable for both its bold subject matter and its format: a stop-motion film produced in French. The Swiss-born director even had his film short-listed as Switzerland’s official entry in the foreign-language film category.

“That was rather rare,” says Barras, who’s earned acclaim at Cannes, Annecy, and festivals worldwide. But he doesn’t think he’s an outlier when it comes to foreign-language stop-motion. “There are several centers in France — in Valence, Brittany, and Toulouse — and in Belgium, Norway, and Switzerland.” Barras cites an informal network of stop-motion animators who travel from one center to another to work. “We received proposals from the four corners of Europe, and even from the U.S. and New Zealand. »

Teen comedies can be annoying, but every year seems to bring a good one. What work nicely are thoughtful movies that acknowledge the modern problems of teens in such a highly sexualized world, and place the sexual aspects in a non-exploitative context. I have been entertained and moved by Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick in Election, Ellen Page in Juno and Thomas Mann and Olivia Cooke in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. This year’s The Edge of Seventeen is a bright writing-directing »

Four Ways The Entertainment Industry Can Counter Trump’s Narrative of Muslims (Opinion)

2 February 2017 3:29 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Suhad (Sue) Obeidi, Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council’s Hollywood Bureau (Mpac), addresses the next steps for the film and television industries to take after many industry figures denounced the Executive Order targeting predominantly Muslim countries. Obeidi has worked with industry executives to reduce stereotyped depictions of Islam and of Muslims and present more accurate and humanizing portrayals. She also organizes the annual Mpac Media Awards, which salute works from film and TV as well as individuals.

Ever since President Trump signed the Muslim Ban Executive Order, I have seen many representatives of the entertainment industry come together to support a community that the very same industry has vilified for decades.

‘Moonlight,’ Netflix’s ‘The Oa,’ ‘Supergirl’ Snag GLAAD Media Awards Nominations

31 January 2017 6:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

GLAAD announced its nominees Tuesday morning for the 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. “Moonlight,” Barry Jenkins’ universally acclaimed longitudinal portrait of a gay black man, is one of only two wide release films to earn a nomination, alongside “Star Trek Beyond.” Last year’s crop of nominees included five wide release films, indicating a dearth of big — or even medium-sized — movies that met the organization’s criteria of fair, accurate, and inclusive representation; boldness and originality; impact; and overall quality.

Amazon earned a spot in the limited release film category with “The Handmaiden” (not to be confused with Hulu’s upcoming TV adaptation of “The Handmaid’s Tale”), and indie film “Other People,” starring Jesse Plemmons.

The TV field continues to be far more crowded, with 10 entrants in the comedy category — including the first nod for NBCU’s streaming service Seeso via series “Take My Wife” and one for Cartoon Network »

Diego Luna is set to star in the Scarface reboot, but director Antoine Fuqua is out

31 January 2017 5:13 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

The latest remake of Scarface has been on the cards for about five years. Martin Bregman, one of the producers of the classic 1983 Al Pacino film, has been working with Universal to develop a new interpretation of the legend and today it was announced that Rogue One’s Diego Luna has been cast in the lead role.

The actor will next be seen in another re-make-quel-boot, Niels Arden Oplev’s new version of Flatliners with Nina Dobrev, Kiefer Sutherland and Ellen Page. Universal’s new Scarface film should propel Luna to a new, wider audience however there’s a good chance Antoine Fuqua won’t be directing him. Variety report that plans to move ahead with a sequel for the 2014 film The Equalizer are moving ahead very quickly, and the desire for a quick sequel has caused conflict in the scheduling.

"Tonight we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting at airports around our country the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign nationals and refugees," the Grammy winner said. "America is a nation of immigrants and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American."

In addition to the visa ban, Trump's order will also suspend the refugee resettlement program for 120 days. The State Department's website defines a refugee as "someone who has fled from his or her home country and cannot return because he or she has a well-founded fear of persecution based on religion, race, nationality, political »

Iranian Director Asghar Farhadi Not Attending Oscars After President Donald Trump's Immigration Ban

30 January 2017 7:23 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Asghar Farhadi's film, The Salesman, is up for an Oscar this year, but the Iranian director will not be in attendance.

Farhadi tells The New York Times that he had planned on attending the Academy Awards on Feb. 26, but changed his mind after President Donald Trump declared a visa ban for citizens from Iran and several other predominantly Muslim countries. "It now seems that the possibility of this presence is being accompanied by ifs and buts which are in no way acceptable to me even if exceptions were to be made for my trip," he says, further explaining why he's skipping the Oscars.
