Whoopi Golberg pens love letter to her vaporizer

9 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Whoopi Goldberg is in love, guys. But not with a human – with her vaporizer pen.

The Egot winner is now writing for The Cannabist (a publication all about, well, guess). In her first piece, she explains how her trusty vaporizer pen has helped her deal with the pain of glaucoma. Goldberg’s daughter gave her the instrument – and that’s when her love affair with Sippy (yes, “her” name is Sippy) was born.

To get a feeling for how Goldberg really feels about her pen, here are all the quotes from her column that could easily be lines from a Nicholas Sparks novel — that is, »

Chloe Moretz leaves her body behind in 'If I Stay' trailer

16 April 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After playing social outcasts in "Kick-Ass," "Let Me In" and "Carrie," Chloe Grace Moretz is finally playing a normal teen in "If I Stay." At least, the new trailer for the film starts out that way. Moretz plays a promising young cellist who seems to have it all --  a shot at Julliard, a nice family ("World War Z's" Mireille Enos plays her mom), and a handsome rocker bf played by Jamie Blackley ("Snow White and the Huntsman"). Things take a tragic turn when a car crash sends her into a coma, and triggers an out-of-body experience where she experiences the world from the outside looking in.  Powered by Moretz' perpetually sad-looking face -- and the inclusion of "Say Something" by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera -- the trailer offers the sort of romantic melancholia found in Nicholas Sparks movies, but with a subtly-played supernatural edge.  The »

Parenthood Cry-cap: Tears, Jerked

11 April 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Since I’ve complained on more than one occasion that not enough tears have been jerked from our eyeholes during season five of Parenthood, the extreme weepiness of this, the penultimate episode, was sort of refreshing. I needed salty discharge to cathartically swim down my cheeks while I watched Kristina Braverman choke her way through a good-bye to her cancer-stricken friend Gwen. I really, really did.At the same time, the more rational side of my brain — the part that hates Love Actually and finds YouTube proposal videos cloying, and once opted to spend a long bus ride staring out the window because that seemed more compelling than reading the God-awful Nicholas Sparks novel that was in my lap — thought the heavy emotion was ladled on a little thick. First there was one Gwen scene (the home-hospice good-bye one, which killed me), then there was another one when Kristina found »

“We’re not building a campaign in the traditional sense. This is a relationship where we continue to test new ideas, measure the effectiveness and look for new ways to disrupt the old model together,” Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh said Thursday morning at Variety’s Massive Summit.

Nicholas Sparks Limited Edition DVD Collection Review And Giveaway

3 April 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Nicholas Sparks Limited Edition DVD Collection is another of those set releases that is the best and worst of all possible worlds. Serious fans are going to be happy to get collectible postcards, and a “personal letter from Nicholas Sparks,” but they already own the movies, and the discs don’t have any new bonuses.

On the other hand, if you don’t already own the movies (or only have one or two), this is a great collection to bring them all home at once. While there aren’t new bonuses, and the films aren’t remastered, or otherwise jazzed up with new treatments, most of the films include some solid bonuses anyway, and even the aging Message in a Bottle looks pretty good.

The Collection includes:

Message in a Bottle A Walk to Remember The Notebook Nights in Rodanthe Dear John The Lucky One Safe Haven

Labor Day review: Kate Winslet's long hot summer

20 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jason Reitman; Screenwriter: Jason Reitman; Starring: Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, Gattlin Griffith, Tobey Maguire, Jk Simmons; Running time: 111 mins; Certificate: 12A

Despite getting a critical hammering in the States, it turns out that romantic drama Labor Day isn't all that bad. As the respective hostage taker and his captive homemaker, Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet may seem like a bad match on paper, but they each take a sincere approach - inspired by characters who have little to lose - and this creates a bond that helps tie the film together.

Otherwise, adapting the novel by Joyce Maynard feels like it may have been hard work for writer/director Jason Reitman. It's new ground for the man behind Juno, Up in the Air, Young Adult and Thank You For Smoking - films where an edge of cynicism helps cut through the sentimentalism. In this case, Reitman appears to be angling for the sultry, »

Michael Bay Eyes Underwater Adventure, George Tillman Jr. Takes 'Longest Ride' With Nicholas Sparks & More

18 March 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Michael Bay has been many places in his cinematic career, and they usually involve explosions, but one territory yet to be dynamited on screen by the director is underwater. That could very well change. Paramount has snapped up an untitled pitch from Tom Wheeler ("Puss In Boots") and Robbie Thompson ("Supernatural") that will be produced by Bay's Platinum Dunes and developed as potential vehicle for the filmmaker. There are no specific plot details just yet, but it's described as a "real science adventure thriller with an undersea component." So, think about that while you watch Bay smash robots together this summer in "Transformers: Age Of Extinction." [THR] Yet another Nicholas Sparks adaptation is on the way to fill your quote of manipulative, melodramatic tripe.

George Tillman Jr. Set for The Longest Ride

17 March 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

George Tillman likes to jump around the genres. His last film was coming-of-age drama The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister & Pete (which has yet to see a UK release) and before that Dwayne Johnson thriller Faster. Next up on his roster? Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride for Fox.Admittedly, this one sounds a little different to Sparks' usual romantic stock-in-trade, though there will be some elements of that. Black Rain writer Craig Bolotin has adapted the book, which follows two converging stories. One is about an elderly man trapped in a car accident who is clinging to life. As he swims in and out of consciousness, he sees visions of his dead wife and their married life. In another plot, a high school senior meets a young bull ride who harbours a secret.The Longest Ride, which arrived in bookstores last September after is just the latest Sparks book »

George Tillman Jr. is in talks to direct Fox 2000's adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel The Longest Ride, which tells the story of 2 couples who could not be more unlike, especially in their present situations... Ira Levinson is 91 years old, injured and stranded, perhaps forever, after a car crash; yet comforted by visions of his beloved wife Ruth, who died nine years before. Not far away is Wake Forest senior Sophia Danko, enraptured head over heels with an equally enthralled cowboy named Luke. In this cinematic novel, Nicholas Sparks weaves together the stories of these two starkly different pairs as only he could.  The two stories, happening concurrently, eventually »

George Tillman Jr. to Direct Nicholas Sparks’ ‘Longest Ride’

17 March 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Notorious” helmer George Tillman Jr. is in negotiations to direct Fox 2000′s adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel “The Longest Ride.”

Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are producing through their Temple Hill banner with Craig Bolotin adapting the script.

The book’s story follows a young couple whose lives intertwine with an old man looking back on the relationship he had with a lost love.

The pic is set to bow April 3, 2015.

Fox 2000 acquired the novel after an aggressive bidding war last February when the studio outbid Warner Bros. and Relativity. Given the success of previous Sparks’ novels like “Safe Haven,” “The Lucky One” and “The Notebook,” Fox views this as a high priority with hopes of similar results at the box office.

Besides “Notorious,” Tillman had previously worked as a producer on the “Barbershop” films and had most recently helmed “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete.” He is repped by CAA. »

Friendship Between Gale Sayers & Brian Piccolo Will Be Focus Of New Film (For The 3rd Time)

13 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Gale Sayers’ life rights and his memoirs, I Am Third and Sayers: My Life And Times, have been optioned by Nicholas Sparks' production company with the goal being to produce a feature film that will, not strictly tell Sayers' story, but instead one that will focus primarily on the friendship between Sayers and his friend and Chicago Bears teammate Brian Piccolo.  You might recall the 1971 made-for-television movie, Brian's Song, which told the story of that friendship - one that shattered racial boundaries (Sayers is black and Piccolo, white, in case it's not obvious) - and Piccolo's final days.  Gale Sayers was played by Billy Dee »

Gale Sayers-Brian Piccolo Relationship Hitting Big Screen Via Nicholas Sparks

13 March 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Nicholas Sparks and Theresa Park have acquired Gale Sayers‘ life rights and his memoirs I Am Third and Sayers: My Life And Times and have partnered with Michael Costigan to produce a feature film that focuses primarily on the friendship between the NFL Hall of Famer and teammate Brian Piccolo when both started out in the backfield of the Chicago Bears. Although Piccolo led the nation in rushing at Wake Forest in 1964, he was considered undersized and didn’t get drafted but made the Bears as a free agent. Sayers came out of the University of Kansas considered the most talented running back in the draft crop and the Bears made him a first-round draft pick. His career took off immediately and he scored 22 touchdowns as a rookie, while Piccolo struggled just to hang on. In an atmosphere where white players and black players didn’t congregate much, the »
