Success of ‘Wonder Woman’ Could Pave Way for More Female Directors

14 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The critical and commercial success of “Wonder Woman,” the first female superhero movie directed by a woman, Patty Jenkins, could be the catalyst that turns the tide for female directors angling to helm major studio films. Keeping the momentum going, however, will be a big challenge.

Although summer looks to be a strong season for women directors, nearly halfway into the year just a handful of female-led films have been announced by the majors. At this juncture, Sony Pictures has more movies helmed by women in its lineup than its competitors. Warner Bros. and Paramount, have not yet unveiled any new women-led films so far this year, and both declined to name projects in the works.

Overall, the studios say they’re working to hire more women as directors, but they have lots of ground to cover to even begin approaching parity. In 2016, men made up more than 90% of directors »

Kristen Bell and James Corden Aerial Duet Goes Hilariously Wrong (Watch)

29 March 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

They may be up in the air, but that’s not where they belong.

During an attempted duet on “The Late Late Show” on Tuesday, Kristen Bell and James Corden paired up to perform the 1982 Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes hit “Up Where We Belong,” which started off nicely but ended unsuccessfully.

The pair began with some gentle banter about love. “You know Kristen, I was just thinking — love can be a funny thing,” Corden said. “You know, I love love, James,” Bell replied.

Corden added, “and I love love too, but love can lift us up,” introducing their duet that almost instantly went amiss.

Things began pleasantly as Bell began belting out the first verse, bringing out the chops she graced us with as Anna in the 2013 Disney hit “Frozen.” Yet as suspenders started lifting her up to the ceiling in front of the star-studded backdrop, Corden didn’t find as much success, having »

Kristen Bell and James Corden's Romantic Duet Goes Hilariously Off the Rails

29 March 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kristen Bell and James Corden's attempt at singing a romantic duet while soaring through the air went hilariously off the rails on Tuesday night's episode of The Late Late Show. The musically gifted pair chose to take Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes's 1990 classic "Up Where We Belong" literally and belted it out while suspended high above the stage on wires. Well, Kristen was high above the stage, while James was left hovering near the bottom. "That was an absolute disaster! Who is responsible for this?" the late-night host joked. "We rehearsed it and rehearsed it and rehearsed it!" It still doesn't beat his tumble down the stairs at the Grammys, though. »

Kristen Bell and James Corden’s ‘Late Late Show’ duet goes comically wrong

29 March 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on ew.com.

Kristen Bell’s duet with James Cordon on Tuesday night’s The Late Late Show was comical at best and unbalanced at worst — and that isn’t even a critique of the performance itself, just what happened.

The Frozen actress joined the late-night songster for Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes’ “Up Where We Belong,” complete with aerial lifts for added theatrics. But the duet turned into a comedic bit as the wire handler kept lifting them off balance.

“You know, Kristen, I was just thinking: love can be a funny thing, »

Watch Kristen Bell, James Corden Perform Awkward Aerial Duet

29 March 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On Tuesday's Late Late Show, Kristen Bell and James Corden were physically moved by the power of love – but they weren't moved to the same spot. The actress and host sang the classic Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes' duet "Up Where We Belong," made hilarious by fake production errors.

The duo began on the stage, with Bell showcasing her warm vibrato and Corden channeling Cocker's trademark gravelly croon. But the vibe turned comedic seconds later, as the CHiPS actress was lifted way above the host, who hung mere feet off the stage. »

Kristen Bell and James Corden Struggle to Perform an Aerial Duet

29 March 2017 6:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

James Corden and Kristen Bell got glammed up to perform an aerial duet of Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes' "Up Where We Belong" On Tuesday's Late Late Show With James Corden.

The singers started out beautifully, but when it came time for them to be lifted in the air, the challenges began. Bell was effortlessly lifted to the ceiling as she sang, while Corden flailed inches above the ground. After a few verses, Corden was brought up while Bell was lowered close to the floor.

"We're supposed to be even," the actress exclaimed. "Can you make us equal?"

How Lost Leonard Cohen Doc 'Bird on a Wire' Finally Made It to Theaters

19 January 2017 6:28 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Leonard Cohen's career was on the verge of complete disaster in late 1971. Songs of Love and Hate, his most recent record, peaked at #145 on the American charts – this despite containing future classics like "Famous Blue Raincoat" and "Joan of Arc." CBS was ready to cut their losses and drop him from the label. A tour would give him the chance to regain some momentum, though Cohen hated performing live; he only reluctantly agreed to a one-month run in Europe because Songs of Love and Hate found a much bigger »
