I had been sitting back wondering whether Ava DuVernay's "Selma" would be ready in time for this year's upcoming awards season. Paramount already has a couple of things to play with, from Jason Reitman's "Men, Women & Children" to Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar." Well, add another, as DuVernay's film has just been slated for a Christmas Day limited release. The film, which is being produced by Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt's Plan B shingle, is still shooting in Atlanta, Georgia and Montgomery and Selma, Alabama, but I guess there is enough faith that the editing will come together in time. It of course tells the story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s struggle to secure voting rights for all during the heated civil rights movement of the 1960s. This led to President Lyndon Johnson signing the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965. The film will go wide on Jan. »

The talk show host had previously signed on to produce the project but will now also act in the picture as Annie Lee Cooper, the civil rights protester who tried to register to vote but was denied.
Gray, now 83, became a key figure in the movement, working closely with King and other leaders.
Winfrey recently said that civil rights protester Maya Angelou, who recently passed away, gave the film her blessing.

Jerry Seinfeld's web based talk show is back for its fourth season and the extended trailer shows the Crackle program going where it has never gone before: into an 18-wheeler. Starting June 19, a new episode of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" will be available every Thursday to stream on Crackle.com, the online wing of Sony Pictures Television. It features, as the title suggests, stand up vet Jerry Seinfeld picking up a fellow comedian in a new car and making conversation at a coffee shop. Debuting in July of 2012, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" earned a Webby Award and was nominated for an Emmy Award. The third season featured guests from Tina Fey to Howard Stern to a special "Seinfeld" reunion of sorts as Jason Alexander and Seinfeld acted in character from the landmark 1990s sit-com. This fourth season's trailer features guests Jon Stewart, Robert Klein, Sarah Jessica Parker, »

Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee will return to Crackle and YouTube on June 19th. The talk show web series about nothing will debut a five-episode fourth season this summer, and a new trailer has revealed the quintet of guests who will join Seinfeld in his vintage automobiles and coffee shops. Seinfeld has been criticized for inviting a majority of white male guests to his show, an accusation he has spurned. Nonetheless, the season four guests are a diverse group: George Wallace, Aziz Ansari, Sarah Jessica Parker, Robert Klein, and Jon Stewart. As in previous seasons, Seinfeld will pick up his guests in classic cars and drive off for a chat that, despite the series title, often goes beyond coffee. For instance, if the trailer is to be believed, Seinfeld and Klein will take a trip to Sing Sing Correctional Facility.

The loose nature of the series makes for both insightful and extremely funny installments, and this new trailer shows that season four participants will include Jon Stewart, Aziz Ansari, George Wallace, Robert Klein, and Sarah Jessica Parker. The trailer also features a really funny button involving Wallace. As a big fan of the show, I’m looking forward to checking out the new episodes.

An innocuous romantic comedy, “Shirin in Love” sets its slightly ditzy, definitely perky heroine on a path toward fulfillment that diverges from the expectations of her wealthy Beverly Hills Iranian-American milieu. This setting provides a superficial novelty that writer-helmer Ramin Niami doesn’t explore in any depth, while everything else is strictly formulaic — and tame enough that it might have passed muster for Doris Day and Rock Hudson 50 years ago. Pic opens Friday in 20 U.S. theaters (some screening a dubbed all-Farsi version), but that leap of faith is likely to pay off mostly in improved visibility for the VOD release likelier to locate an audience.
Perpetually running afoul of aspiring-novelist traffic cop Henderson (George Wallace) by running stop signs in her vintage Vw, Shirin (Nazanin Boniadi) is an improbable former human-rights attorney who bowed to her family’s wishes, giving up that calling to work as book editor at »

While audiences are by now familiar with formulas and templates of romantic comedies, sometimes adding a cultural twist can keep things fresh, and certainly, that's what writer/director Ramin Niami is aiming for with "Shirin In Love." Featuring "Homeland" star Nazanin Boniadi (aka Fara Sherazi from season 3), she plays the titular Shirin, a young Iranian-American living in Los Angeles, long engaged to an Iranian plastic surgeon, who breaks the bonds of loyalty and tradition when she starts seeing another man, starting a culture clash. And in this clip from the film, Shirin is caught in bed shortly after her mysterious lover has left, much to the exasperation of her fiancé. Co-starring Riley Smith, Amy Madigan, Maz Jobrani and George Wallace, "Shirin In Love" opens on March 14th. Check out the clip and poster for the film below. »
