Cannes: Salma Hayek, Colin Farrell, Amy Poehler Weigh in on Selfies Ban (Video)

24 May 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A number of stars are sharing their thoughts on the Cannes Film Festival organizers' request that attendees refrain from snapping selfies on the red carpet. During a sit-down, Salma Hayek told The Hollywood Reporter she agrees that selfies are inappropriate on the red carpet, as "there's a time for everything." "It's a magical, special place, and it's important to be present, and it's important that it's exclusive," Hayek continued. "No more selfies." Amy Poehler said she is baffled by people's fixation on their own looks. "It is amazing how much people like their own face these days, and

New Images From The Wet Hot American Summer Prequel

24 May 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might have been more of a post-cinema release cult hit, but Wet Hot American Summer boasted so much comedy acting talent packed into its cast that it was somehow natural that someone would try to bring it back. That someone was Netflix, which commissioned follow-up series First Day Of Camp, which will arrive on the streaming service in July. The first full batch of images from the show is now online.  The series, according to co-writer/director David Wain, is “a prequel to the original movie. In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. The show takes place on the first day.”Pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

Netflix Plans A Very (Bill) Murray Christmas

24 May 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As if Bill Murray wasn’t already a festive tradition for many of Team Empire thanks to Scrooged, he’s now ready to crash that Yuletide staple, the Christmas special. Netflix is backing A Very Murray Christmas. Check out the very short teaser below. Co-written by the actor alongside his Lost In Translation director Sofia Coppola and Scrooged scribe Mitch Glazer, with Coppola set to call the shots, the special will be an homage to variety shows, with Murray playing himself and worrying that none of his guests will show up due to a terrible snow storm in New York. “Christmas is really about Christmas songs so I thought I’d sort of do something like that,” Murray previously said of the project. “That was sort of Sofia’s idea. And I started thinking about Christmas songs and I thought you can do some different things with it and sort »

Nextflix has released the first trailer for A Very Murray Christmas, the upcoming holiday special which reunites Lost in Translation director Sofia Coppola and star Bill Murray.

The “homage to the classic variety shows” sees Murray playing himself, with the comedy legend worrying about whether a New York City snowstorm will ruin his TV show, but “through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at the Carlyle hotel to help him; dancing and singing in holiday spirit.”

Murray will be joined by a star-studded cast in the special, which includes the likes of George Clooney, Miley Cyrus, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Michael Cera, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones, David Johansen, Frederic Moulin, Julie White, and Dimitri Dimitrov.

Bill Murray, Sofia Coppola prepare us for the holidays with Netflix’s ‘A Very Murray Christmas’

23 May 2015 8:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Is this the Lost in Translation sequel we have desired? Probably not, but it will still be great.

Netflix released the first trailer for A Very Murray Christmas on Thursday, which reunites Bill Murray with his Translation director Sofia Coppola. The cast will be led by Murray playing a version of himself with guest stars, including: George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Frederic Moulin, Rashida Jones, Miley Cyrus and more.

The teaser doesn’t show much outside of Murray, with reindeer ears, looking out a window that is very reminiscent to many scenes in Lost in Translation, but regardless, I’m sure a lot of people will tune in to see something starring both Bill Murray and the array of guest stars that he and Coppola have amassed.

The special will be coming »

First teaser for Bill Murray-starring Netflix special ‘A Very Murray Christmas’

23 May 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You know there’s so much good stuff on Netflix that, frankly and sadly, I haven’t got enough free time to see everything I want but this one, definitely this one, I’ll be taking a moment to watch once it hits the streaming service later this year. Granted, we’ve got a while for A Very Murray Christmas because it’s not out until December, and we haven’t even hit summer 2015 yet!

What is all this rambling about, you ask? Well, back in October we reported that Murray would be teaming up again with Sofia Coppolla and today’s teaser trailer is the result of their reunited collaboration.

A Very Murray Christmas is all about him putting on a show in New York but due to a massive snowstorm, he’s worried that no-one is going to arrive. But through the will of good fortune and the luck of the draw, »

22 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd are returning to the scene of their 2001 comedy Wet Hot American Summer. The original saw many of Hollywood’s best and brightest populate a Jewish summer camp in a spoof of 1980s teen movies.

Now Netflix have produced an eight-episode prequel series, and released the following images of the cast in unbridled hormonal action for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp

The show sees many of the now-middle-aged cast reprise their randy teen roles, only several weeks younger! Pictured beneath the top shot of Poehler and Cooper are: Elizabeth Banks, Molly Shannon, Janeane Garofalo and of course Rudd giving a lucky girl the backrub from Hell.

Other actors who’ve agreed to revisit their misspent onscreen youths include David Hyde Pierce and Marisa Ryan. Fellow camper Michael Showalter is back to co-write the script with Whas director David Wain. More pictures can be found here. »

Regina George’s ‘Mean Girls’ Mansion Is Up for Sale

22 May 2015 3:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Now this is fetch: “Mean Girls” fans willing to cough up $15 million can now live in Regina George’s mansion.

The home that Rachel McAdams’ character’s family (led by cool mom Amy Poehler) occupied in the hit 2004 teen comedy is selling for a pretty mean price.

The 20,000-square-foot home is actually located in Toronto, Canada, not Evanston, Illnois, where the movie, directed by Mark Waters, is set. The lavish 11-bedroom house is where George and her cronies, known as “The Plastics,” drank fake cocktails and wrote in their burn book.

The mansion sits on two acres of land and has 12 bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and a six-car garage, according to the Sotheby’s listing.

Netflix Releases Summer Camp Photos For ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Series

22 May 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix is teasing Wet Hot American Summer fans with some new images. The streaming platform has released photos from its upcoming original series, set for premiere on July 31, 2015.

Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer is the eight-episode sequel to the 2001 film of the same name.

Back in December, Netflix announced it would be bringing a TV series of Wet Hot American Summer to life. The original cast members were confirmed a month later, who were later joined by several new faces to the Camp Firewood crew (like Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Jon Hamm »

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for. The prequel to the 2001 film again takes place in 1981, which of course only augments the hilarity that the cast (originally in their 30s playing teenagers) are 15 years older now, and playing even (ever so slightly) younger characters. All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D.

Like stores playing Christmas music in October and people forming lines outside Best Buy the Monday before Black Friday, it's apparently never too early to start preparing for the holiday season. Well, Netflix has officially upped the ante this morning, debuting the first teaser for its upcoming holiday special "A Very Murray Christmas" starring, who else, Bill Murray. If you're like me you love Lost in Translation, and if that's the case you'll be delighted to know Netflix's upcoming special is written and directed by Sofia Coppola. The teaser features Murray wistfully staring out the window of a high-rise, wearing thick black suspenders and a pair of reindeer antlers. All that's missing is the Suntory whisky. The video is just a small taste of something bigger, as "A Very Murray Christmas" is described as an homage to the classic variety show, with Murray playing himself, worried no one will show »
