Watch this on The Scene. Who knew some of our favorite celebs were Beliebers? In a Vanity Fair video that premiered at Sundance 29 stars get together to prove their familiarity - or lack thereof (we're looking at you Jon Hamm) - of Justin Bieber's hit single "Sorry." Although Hamm may have got the lyrics off to a rocky start, the Mad Men star was followed by John Legend who enthusiastically hummed the beat as he proclaimed, "I like that song!"

Watch: The BFFs Are Back In New Trailer For 'Broad City' Season 3

10 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are few voices on the television comedy landscape at the moment that are as bright as Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. The duo behind "Broad City" have quickly ascended to the top ranks of small screen laughs, with their Comedy Central becoming a big fave, and I can only imagine it's just a matter of time until the feature film world comes knocking down their down, as it did for their network pals, "Key & Peele." But first, they've got another season of "Broad City" to deliver, and the latest trailer is here. Read More: 'Broad City' Girls Ilana Glazer & Abbi Jacobson Are Making A New Comedy Film With Paul Feig One of the things that many treasure about "Broad City" is how it mixes observations on gender, sex, and more, in between the laughter.

Why Viceland Doesn’t Want You to See Its Ratings

9 February 2016 5:10 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Vice’s new cable channel launches later this month, it will offer shows from the likes of Ellen Page, Eddie Huang and Action Bronson. But it will not offer any transparency about who is watching them. Ratings for Viceland — which is co-owned by A+E Networks and set to debut Feb. 29 — will not be publicly available for the network’s first six months. Nielsen will measure Viceland’s viewership, but neither Nielsen nor the network will release the numbers to the media. Viceland can still share the numbers with advertisers to persuade them to buy commercials. But because Viceland produces all its own programming, »

Vice’s TV Channel Announces Leadership Team Ahead Of February 29th Launch

3 February 2016 2:22 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

This month, Vice will make a bold dive into the world of TV, and it will have some experienced executives at its helm. Filmmaker Spike Jonze, Vice Chief Content Officer Eddy Moretti, and former A&E exec Guy Slattery are the three people at the head of Viceland, a TV channel that will launch on February 29th.

Jonze, an Oscar winner, is a frequent Vice collaborator; his presence within the Viceland structure was announced alongside the channel last November. Moretti will serve as co-president alongside Jonze, and Slattery, whose former company ceded its H2 channel to Viceland, will have a leading role as well. “It’s a pretty crazy moment for us that someone’s giving us a TV channel,” said Jonze in a press release. “We’re trying to make the whole thing just be driven by creativity and making something that feels personal. And the exciting thing about »

Vice Names Spike Jonze, Eddy Moretti to Lead Viceland Cable Channel

3 February 2016 6:43 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Vice Media named filmmaker Spike Jonze co-president of Viceland, its cable network slated to launch Feb. 29 in partnership with A+E Networks, alongside chief creative officer Eddy Moretti.

The duo have been collaborating on the channel over the past year. They will be joined by G.M. Guy Slattery, who is joining Viceland from A+E Networks where he was exec VP of marketing for A&E, History and H2 Networks.

Viceland, which is replacing A+E’s H2 documentary and entertainment channel, will be distributed in about 71 million U.S. homes when it launches. For Vice, which also has a pact with HBO for a daily news program in addition to documentary specials, the strategy with Viceland is aimed at migrating its hip, digital-oriented brand further into traditional media — offering not only a new creative outlet but a big chunk of cash from pay-tv affiliate fees and ads.

Behind the Scenes at the Variety Shutterstock Portrait Studio in Sundance (Video)

2 February 2016 6:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kristen Stewart, Lena Dunham, Kate Beckinsale, Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe and Spike Lee were among the actors and actresses that paid a visit to the Variety Shutterstock portrait studio over the course of 2016’s Sundance Film Festival.

Variety‘s chief photographer Michael Buckner strayed from a generic backdrop for this year’s studio, instead fashioning a rustic, industrial set that featured a stained pallet floor.

“Every event has its own pressures, even though it seems like it’s the same kind of product,” said Buckner of his inaugural experience shooting the Variety Studio.

“Actors and actresses know what they’re doing and that’s a big help, so they kind of do 20-30% of your job for you,” he admitted. “When an actor wants to do something, you don’t stop them because that one thing that they want to give you will always lead into something else.

Spielberg's Best Pictures and New DVDs

2 February 2016 12:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Time to check in to see which movies we all can check back in with or catch up with now that they've hit the home market. The big title, Oscar wise is Steven Spielberg's 10th Best Picture nominee as a director, the cold war drama Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance both doing fine work as a lawyer and the spy he must bargain with for a prisoner of war trade. Only one of Spielberg's directorial efforts has ever won Best Picture (Schindler's List, 1993) but which is your favorite? I'd rank them like so...

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) Schindler's List (1993) Jaws (1975) E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) Lincoln (2012) The Color Purple (1985) Bridge of Spies (2015) Saving Private Ryan (1998) Munich (2005) War Horse (2011)

With the disclaimer that everyone knows I'm not a Spielberg aficionado really (the top three are the only ones I'm completely wild about from this list »

Freeheld | Blu-ray Review

2 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Released two weeks after premiering at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, Peter Sollet’s awards-baiting Lgbt drama Freeheld failed to command an Oscar campaign. Raking in just under six hundred thousand at the domestic office following a demure roll-out from distributor Lionsgate, this depiction of Laurel Hester’s 2005 fight for equality plays like a civil rights footnote eclipsed by more meaningful instances from the past decade. Despite some honorable performances from the likes of Julianne Moore and Michael Shannon (not to mention some woefully clichéd support from Steve Carrell), the film is fettered by its desperation to remain relevant and appealing, though it never captures the gravity clearly seen in Cynthia Wade’s documentary short, which provided the basis for this film.

As far as the importance of awareness and acceptance goes, these films are still important, now that some distance from the period allows the chance for significant introspection »

Vanity Fair's 2016 Hollywood Issue Cover - A Close Look

1 February 2016 4:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Someone's been paying attention to every single media firestorm in Hollywood this past year from ageism to equal pay to diversity. Gracing this year's cover of Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue is political showbiz icon Jane Fonda (2 Oscars), the inspirational crusading awesomeness of Viola Davis (1 phantom Oscar -- well, everyone knows she deserved it!), "the world is round people" diva Cate Blanchett (2 Oscars), and equal-pay-demander Jennifer Lawrence (1 Oscar).

Vf's "Hollywood Issue" tradition is one of the key attractions in the showbiz circus of Oscar season. Though the covers aren't tied thematically to the Oscars they usually include current nominees. The primary form is a "predict the future superstars" covers in which they lean into the young in-demand crop who are having good years. The less common form is a survey of A listers and legends and a few people that scream "now"  and that's the type we got this year. And girl, »

2016 Sundance Deals: The Complete List of Festival Pick-Ups

1 February 2016 11:18 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One thing that became abundantly clear in the days leading up to the 2016 Sundance Film Festival was just how big of a year it was going to be for bidding wars and sales deals. It started eight days before opening night, when Netflix threw its hat into the ring first by picking up streaming rights to Sian Heder's feature debut, "Tallulah," starring Ellen Page and Allison Janney. The deal would be the first of five for the streaming giant, a second one of which, the Iranian horror film "Under the Shadow," was also acquired before the festival began.

The 21 Best Films of Sundance 2016

1 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Variety film critics Justin Chang, Peter Debruge, Guy Lodge, Geoff Berkshire and Dennis Harvey weighed in with their choices for the 21 best films that world-premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. The full list follows (in alphabetical order):

1. “Agnus Dei.” Set in a Polish convent ravaged by Russian soldiers at the end of WWII, Anne Fontaine’s finest film in years explores every aspect of an unthinkable situation with tact, intelligence and fine-grained character detail. Beautifully acted by a strong female ensemble, especially the great Agata Kulesza (“Ida”), the film achieves a grace that transcends even its cloistered surroundings. (Justin Chang)

2. “Audrie & Daisy.” Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s documentary was among the festival’s most potent social-issue indictments, delving into two recent high-profile cases underline the high risk of sexual assault among American teens, as well as the “slut-shaming” culture that often exacerbates the trauma such crimes create. (Dennis »

Sundance: what were the buzz titles of 2016?

31 January 2016 12:37 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sundance Film Festival marks a fresh start to the film calendar. Just as awards season is winding down, new artistic agendas are kicking off all over Park City.

Sundance is a festival unsullied by headline-sucking studio ‘out-of-competition’ launches, making it purely about the programming line-up, split neatly between docs and dramatic, world and Us, premieres and competitive. In that sense, there was one big winner: Nate Parker’s The Birth Of A Nation, which won the Grand Jury Prize in the Us Dramatic section and also walked away with the Audience Award and a record-breaking $17.5m deal from Fox Searchlight.

Netflix had actually offered more for the confrontational, provocative, agenda-changing film which will be pushed for next year’s awards to put a halt to Oscars-being-so-white. In fact, Netflix and Amazon were active throughout Sundance, chasing down quality, prestige English-language projects as opposed to bulk-buying. (This isn’t cable programming; this is taste-making.

Ellen Page: ‘Being out became more important than any movie’

The Oscar-nominated Juno star talks about child stardom, her Vice TV show and why she had to stop living a lie

Within a few minutes of meeting the actor Ellen Page near her Los Angeles home, we’re talking about what she enjoys doing around here, which is going surfing with her girlfriend, artist Samantha Thomas. She likes to watch Thomas, the more experienced surfer, examine the waves. Thomas tells her which way to turn, based on movements in the water that Page can’t even see. “Particularly on days where there are onshore winds, so it’s kind of rough, she’ll say, ‘Oh, a wave’s coming at you, it’s a right, go right’ and I’m just like, ‘What are you looking at? You can read the ocean like that?’ It’s really hot,” she adds, the excitement in her gentle voice suggesting that she is quietly, »

Julianne Moore Reflects on Co-Star Ellen Page's Coming Out: "[She] Was Miserable"

28 January 2016 1:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

With a decades-long career in Hollywood under her belt, Julianne Moore has a lot to say.  The 55-year-old Oscar winner has portrayed seemingly every kind of woman on the silver screen, from a 1950s California housewife in an unhappy marriage to a linguistics professor facing early on-set Alzheimers disease. In her newest role in the documentary-inspired drama Freeheld, Moore immersed herself in a battle familiar to the Lgbt community as she portrayed police office Laurel Hester, a woman on her deathbed fighting to transfer her benefits to her domestic partner, portrayed by Ellen Page. To recreate the struggle of this famous woman, the actress drew on the real-life experiences of her co-star, who »

27 January 2016 9:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix is nearing a deal to add yet another Sundance title to its slate. The company is close to a pact for worldwide streaming rights to “Brahman Naman,” Variety has learned.

Beyond the sex jokes, the film also criticizes India’s caste system.

Brahman Naman” premiered on Sunday in Sundance’s world cinema dramatic competition to positive reviews. The cast includes Shashank Arora, Tanmay Dhanania, Chaitanya Varad and Vaiswath Shankar.

Brahman Naman” was directed by celebrated Indian director Q from a script by Naman Ramachandran (a London-based contributor to Variety).

Sundance: Netflix Strikes Again, Picking Up ‘Audrie & Daisy’

27 January 2016 4:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has struck again, landing all rights to teen assault documentary “Audrie & Daisy” out of the Sundance Film Festival.

The film will premiere globally in 2016 under the Netflix Original banner. Netflix has been very active at this year’s Sundance, snapping up streaming rights to “Tallulah” with Ellen Page, “The Fundamentals of Caring” with Paul Rudd and the Farsi horror film “Under the Shadow.”

Directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (“The Island President”), “Audrie & Daisy” charts the parallel stories of two teenage girls who are sexually assaulted by boys they thought were friends. They both attempt suicide after being subjected to online harassment and school bullying.

The film is critical of a legal system that it claims does not extend enough rights to abuse victims.

“Audrie & Daisy” is an AfterImage Public Media production, in association with Impact Partners and Actual Films. UTA Independent Film Group represented Impact Partners and the filmmakers. »

27 January 2016 11:41 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As is so often the case with each passing year, 2016’s Sundance Film Festival ignited a flurry of activity among studios and filmmakers alike, with a number of the major players moving in to acquire the hottest properties in town. And while the likes of Casey Affleck’s Manchester By The Sea and the Ellen Page-starring Tallulah pocketed distribution deals of their own, it was Nate Parker’s boisterous The Birth of a Nation that stole the headlines after securing a lucrative deal with Fox Searchlight to the tune of $17.5 million. That’s the biggest sale in Sundance history, and it didn’t even go to the highest bidder.

Hot on the heels of receiving a standing ovation at the film festival, it’s understood that The Weinstein Company and Netflix had both expressed interest in the feature film – the latter reportedly tabled a $20 million offer – though Parker is »
