Week in Review: Spend the night at the Godzilla Hotel in Japan

27 February 2015 10:36 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.

For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.

Ah the Japanese; so like us.

We all know Michael Keaton should’ve won an Oscar last Sunday. In fact, he probably thought so too. Take a look at this Vine, in which it kind of looks like he’s putting a piece of paper, maybe an acceptance speech back into his jacket pocket right »

Kirk Cameron And Cameron Diaz “Win” Big At 2015 Razzie Awards

22 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about any of that “Oscars” silliness, or Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties. No, I’m talking about the 2015 Razzie Awards, in which all the crap of the crop from this past year in cinema at last gets its well-deserved comeuppance.

This year’s “winners” are a particularly disreputable bunch, with Kirk Cameron leading the pack for his atrocious Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and Michael Bay reliably racking up more Golden Raspberry Awards for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. It was a strangely good night for Ben Affleck, who took home the “Redeemer” Award for turning his career around from Gigli to Gone Girl, and a bad one for Cameron Diaz, who lost out in Worst Supporting Actress for Annie (which still, deservedly, won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel) but received »

Razzie Awards 2015 'Winners': The Full List

21 February 2015 4:05 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 2015 Razzies "winners" have been announced, leaving the "losers" to breathe a collective sigh of relief -- because, well, who the hell wants to win a Razzie?

You see, for the past 35 years, on the eve of the Oscars, the Golden Raspberry Awards has honored the very best of the very worst movies released the previous year -- and this year's competition was nothing short of spectacular...ly tragic. Everyone -- from Razzie favorites Nicolas Cage and Michael Bay to newcomers Nicola Peltz and Gaia Weiss -- was in the crosshairs, but only 10 took home Razzies.

Here then, ladies and gentlemen, is the full list of winners from the 2015 Razzie Awards.

Will 'Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas' sweep Razzies?'

11 February 2015 7:44 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Looks like Kirk Cameron will need to make room on his mantle next to those two People's Choice awards he won for his 1980s sitcom "Growing Pains." We are predicting that his critically lambasted "Saving Christmas" will sweep the upcoming Razzies, taking home four of these dubious achievement awards. -Break- For Worst Picture, he faces a tough challenger in "Transformers: Age of Extinction." That fourth film in the franchise is heavily favored in two other races: Worst Director (Michael Bay) and Worst Remake, Ripoff or Sequel. To win Worst Actor, Cameron will have to defeat Razzies darling Adam Sandler, who contends for the would-be comedy "Blended."  While Cameron and his ego are strong contenders for Worst Screen Combo, they could be bested by Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel who made "Sex Tape." Diaz is far in front for Worst Actress.  However, it looks like Cameron a...' »

Sundance 2015: Best of the Festival

6 February 2015 8:17 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The snowy streets of Park City, Utah have cleared out and another Sundance has come to an end. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl appears to be this year’s breakout independent film but there were several other movies that a made a quieter critical splash that are just waiting to be discovered by a wider audience. They consist of a tightly wound, tension-filled western, a cerebral discussion about America, creativity, and privacy, a musical icon’s emotional bio pic, a powerful coming-of-age tearjerker, and one peculiar romantic comedy. What follows are my highlights of a diversely entertaining Sundance 2015:

Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel in “The End of the Tour”

Written by David Lipsky and Donald Marguiles

Amy Pascal’s Hits & Misses at the Box Office

6 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The news of the end of Amy Pascal’s tenure as head of Sony Pictures Entertainment begs an examination of the studio’s performance under her leadership.

Pascal, who will remain at Sony in a new role as a producer, has long been known around town for her keen eye for winning projects. Though her reputation has suffered recently as a result of North Korea’s infamous hacking attack on the studio, which revealed a few unseemly email exchanges in which Pascal and other execs criticized the attitudes of A-listers and made racially tinged jokes at the expense of President Obama, Pascal steered the studio through her share of triumphs.

Any career as long as Pascal’s is bound to have its peaks and valleys. From the highest heights (“Skyfall,” “Spider-Man 2”) to the lowest lows (“Jack and Jill,” “Sparkle”), Pascal led Sony through it all. Here’s a look »

Busy Philipps Says Seth Rogen Gave Her Pot During 'Freaks and Geeks'

5 February 2015 7:58 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Call this the worst secret kept in Hollywood.

Cougar Town star Busy Philipps appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, and was honest when a viewer asked who the biggest stoner was on the set of NBC's Freaks and Geeks. Philipps starred in the now beloved comedy series alongside Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jason Segel and Linda Cardellini from 1999-2000.

Though host Andy Cohen initially guessed Franco, Philipps said that Franco doesn't smoke pot, and revealed that it was actually Rogen who used to provide her with weed.

"Yeah, I would say Seth," she shrugs. "He used to give me my pot, so ..."

According to the 35-year-old actress, it was high quality product.

Rogen has been open about his marijuana infatuation before, even offering to be rapper Waka Flocka Flame's personal blunt roller in September.

The Best Films of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival

2 February 2015 3:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Variety’s top film critics have selected their favorite movies of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, which screened over 123 features in its 17th edition. All three of them agree: grand prize and audience award winner “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” was one of this year’s finest achievements in Park City. 

Justin Chang: Another Sundance has come to a close, and I think it’s safe to say that this year’s edition was a particularly fine one — distinguished, first and foremost, by a U.S. dramatic competition that offered the jury plenty of opportunity to spread the wealth. I had a bit of a hunch that “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” might sweep both the grand jury prize and the audience award, in the now de rigueur winner-takes-all manner of “Whiplash,” “Fruitvale Station” and “Precious” before it (or rather, “Fruitvale” and “Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire, »

Sundance 2015: 9 Films From the Festival You’ll Actually Get to See Soon

1 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Although we sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed all of our Sundance Film Festival coverage from the last, what, 248 days?, we understand that reading about movies you might never get to see isn’t always that exciting (but we want it to be!). Instead, we’d like to get you excited about films you actually can see, and considering how many of this year’s Sundance titles have already sold (read: a lot of them) to existing distribution-bent outfits, the odds are high you’ll get to see a bunch of the features we’ve been non-stop jawing about for days, and soon! Here are nine of our favorites from the fest that we promise will be hitting your eyeballs before the year is out. It’s Sundance every day!

Sundance Ignites 2016 Oscar Race with ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘Grandma’ and More

30 January 2015 3:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brooklyn,” a drama about an Irish immigrant’s journey to America, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday night without much advance buzz. But when the lights at the Eccles Theatre in Park City came up two hours later to a rapturous standing ovation, it was clear that Sundance had just screened one of the best films of the year. Within 24 hours, Fox Searchlight defeated its rivals (including the Weinstein Co. and Focus Features) in a heated bidding war and landed “Brooklyn” for $9 million. That deal, the biggest at this year’s festival, also kicked off the Oscars 2016 race.

It might seem ridiculously early to be handicapping an awards show that’s still 13 months away. But the snow-covered theaters in Park City can be the first stop on the long road to awards season. In 2014 Sundance launched the campaigns for best picture nominees “Whiplash” (which opened the festival) and “Boyhood, »

Week in Review: Sundance movies coming soon to a theater near you

30 January 2015 10:38 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We’ve been relishing the chance to be in Park City again this year for Sundance, despite the fact that for the first time in the festival’s history no movies are being screened on 35mm. That said, some already incredible movies have received awards and much deserved buzz. Most notable among them is Don Hertzfeld’s animated World of Tomorrow, which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Short Film.

But we’ve also been watching the buyers, because for those of us who couldn’t make it out to Utah this year, we have an invested interest in actually seeing these movies some day. Here’s a list of some of the more notable deals that were struck. Indiewire has a full list of films and buyers.

Sundance Deals: Netflix Tries to Crash the Party, But Is No Belle of the Ball Yet

28 January 2015 6:58 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Netflix came to this year’s Sundance Film Festival as the digital spoiler, ready to spend more than traditional studios to lure the top indie movies away from theatrical distribution – but so far they haven’t spoiled a thing, as the big acquisitions in a healthy market have mainly gone to the usual distribution suspects.

Multiple dealmakers have told TheWrap that Netflix came to Sundance with a specific strategy to outbid the other studios for movies in an attempt to build a track record as a buyer of major festival titles. A longtime supporter of independent film, Netflix has been »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

Meet the 2015 Sundance Filmmakers #37: James Ponsoldt Returns to the Festival With 'The End of the Tour'

27 January 2015 4:52 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James Ponsoldt is a Sundance veteran. After his 2006 debut, "Off the Black," he returned in 2012 and 2013 with "Smashed" and "The Spectacular Now" (respectively), and now he's back with "The End of the Tour," a unique portal into the enigmatic mind of writer David Foster Wallace. The film has garnered positive reactions from critics, who highlight Jason Segel's transformative performance as one of the actor's best yet. Ponsoldt shares the challenges of portraying Wallace onscreen for the first time: "I hope the audience feels that their intelligence was respected." What's your film about, in 140 characters or less? The story of the intense, surprising five-day 1996 interview between “Rolling Stone” reporter David Lipsky and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace. Now, what's it Really about?

"Sex and the City's" Ron Livingston Recreates Jack Berger's Infamous Breakup Post-It Note

27 January 2015 3:30 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Jack Berger is still up to his old antics! Ron Livingston, who played Carrie Bradshaw's (Sarah Jessica Parker) ex-boyfriend, Berger, on "Sex and the City," hilariously recreated that memorable moment he broke up with the blonde beauty on measly a post-it note. Cosmopolitan magazine caught up with the actor at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, where he posed for a pic with the infamous letter Berger left Carrie after ending their rocky romance on the HBO show. We're sure "Sex and the City" fans remember those seven little words that ended their relationship -- "I'm sorry. I can't. Don't hate me" -- well, Ron does too! Charlotte Palermino from the mag shared the special moment via Twitter. "~ I'm sorry. I can't. Don't hate me. ~ Ron Livingston being our favorite Berger #Sundance," she posted with the candid snap. While we'll always remember Ron as Carrie's jealous ex-boyfriend, the actor was »
