Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon

Troubling fact: the great director Otto Preminger's worst film is not Skidoo. Three physical misfits form an alternative family as a defense against the world. It's a good idea for a movie, but the writer and director do just about everything wrong that a writer and director can do.

Fogelman’s writing credits include the three “Cars” movies, “Tangled,” “Bolt,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” “Last Vegas,” “The Guilt Trip” and “Danny Collins,” which he also directed.

If You've Ever Felt Worthless, Uzo Aduba Has Something You Need to Hear

9 August 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

There are plenty of reasons to love Uzo Aduba. She gives the best pep talks, makes inspiring award show speeches, and slays season after season as Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on Orange Is the New Black. On top of all that, Uzo's cover story in Essence's September issue is chock-full of quotes that will make you want to punch your fist in the air. The Emmy winner touches on everything from perseverance in a difficult industry to how she maintains her self-esteem, all of which we can add to her long list of encouraging quotes: On the time she almost quit acting: "There have been times in my life where I have doubted, questioned, felt tired, but I had never quit before in my core. My heart never quit. And that was the first time I felt my heart give out on me." On her elated reaction to hearing she'd »

The Women Who Score: Soundtracks Live Concert Set For Friday, August 19

3 August 2016 3:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Music is an integral part of filmmaking, moving the story and touching the audience. Where would iconic movies such as Star Wars, Avatar, The Godfather, or Gone with the Wind be without its music? Would Downton Abbey, Dexter, or House of Cards be the same and have audiences glued to their TVs without music? Would gamers immerse into Final Fantasy or Legend of Zelda if they were silent? Movie music has moved us all to cheer, cry, and fall in love for more than 100 years. Yet the vast majority of composers hired to create this vital part of Hollywood’s cultural landscape have been men. Well, that musical glass ceiling is about to crack!

Grand Performances, the “Best Free Outdoor Summer Concert Series” in Los Angeles and the Alliance for Women Film Composers team up celebrate the music of women composers in film, television, video games and interactive media at »

Mindy Newell’s Coming Attractions

1 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

In the spring of 1971, I met a girl. The first time I saw her, we were, appropriately enough, in a class on political and civil rights. She had thick blond hair, big glasses. Wore no makeup. And she exuded this strength of self-possession I found magnetic. –President Bill Clinton, 2016 Democratic National Convention, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Lock Her Up!!! – Rallying Cry at 2016 Republican National Convention

In my not so humble opinion, the Wonder Woman trailer definitely shows a lot of promise.

But I’m not talking about Princess Diana of Themiscrya. I mean that other Wonder WomanHillary Rodham Clinton.

You may be thinking “What trailer? I mean the one starring Mrs. Clinton for the last 50 or so years of her life, during much of which she has been in the public eye – or bull’s-eye – and not just as Flotus, New York Senator, and Secretary of State. Hillary’s extensive involvement »

The Gang’s All Here

Wonderful isn't a good enough word to describe this joyful, funny and visually intoxicating Alice Faye musical by Busby Berkeley. Decades later it became part of a big Camp revival, but the real draw is still the Benny Goodman swing music, delightful performers like Carmen Miranda, and Berkeley's bizarre Technicolor visions.

Democratic National Convention Night One Draws Bigger Early Ratings Than Rnc

26 July 2016 9:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention was a tricky balancing act for the party, but was a little clearer-cut for the broadcast networks that began coverage of the event at 10 p.m. ABC and NBC tied the hour with a 1.0 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, but ABC won the total viewer competition with 4.17 million; NBC drew 3.78 million total. CBS lagged with a 0.5 demo rating and 2.59 million total viewers.

Some more caveats than usual this go-round: These preliminary numbers only take into account viewing done until 11 p.m. Bernie Sanders’ much-anticipated speech endorsing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton plowed through the primetime barrier and didn’t end until nearly 11:30 on the East Coast. Since Sanders’ speech was highly anticipated, though, and followed a burst of social media activity surrounding Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Warren’s speeches, and given that people may have tuned in to their local news and simply stayed with Sanders’ speech, there »

Roger Ailes: Republican Convention Buzzes About Fox News Chief’s Fall

20 July 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cleveland — News of the imminent departure of Roger Ailes from Fox News was almost as hot a topic as Donald Trump among the hundreds of journalists attending the Republican National Convention this week.

Many noted the irony of the timing, coming in the midst of the Gop gathering in the city where the one-time media advisor to Republican presidents got his start as a producer on “The Mike Douglas Show.” Ailes grew up in Warren, Ohio, a mid-sized city about 60 miles east of Cleveland.

Current and former Fox News employees expressed a mix of sadness, surprise and dismay at Ailes’ swift fall from his perch as chairman-ceo of the hugely profitable 21st Century Fox division that he built from scratch over the past 20 years.

Ailes’ position is said to have became untenable after he was sued for sexual harassment by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson earlier this month. That led to other women coming forward with »

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ ‘Hell or High Water’ Score: Listen to Two Excerpts from the Stirring Ost

13 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” soundtrack is among the best, most frequently co-opted film scores of the last decade, and news of further collaboration between the two tends to be welcome among cinephiles. Their latest is David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release next month. Pitchfork has excerpts from two songs.

Movie Review – The Conjuring 2 (2016)

22 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Conjuring 2, 2016.

Directed by James Wan.

Starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Madison Wolfe, Frances O’Connor and Simon McBurney.

Synopsis:

Lorraine and Ed Warren travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

Following up 2013’s supremely chilling The Conjuring was always going to be a difficult task but James Wan has managed to deliver an intensely scary piece of film that is nearly as good as the first.

Opening in arguably one of the most famous haunted houses ever; we find Ed and Lorraine Warren attempting to contact spirits at Amityville. Within the first ten minutes The Conjuring 2 manages to deliver edge of your seat scares, coupled with phenomenal direction from Wan. We see Lorraine (Farmiga) walking through the Amityville property, carrying out the crimes that have become so famous. It’s well acted and a »

Uzo Aduba on ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4, the Big Death and Mental Health

21 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[Spoiler alert: The following interview discusses major plot points from the final three episodes of “Orange Is the New Black” season 4. Do not read until you’ve finished the season.]

In many ways Uzo Aduba’s Suzanne “Crazy-Eyes” Warren has become the heart of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black.” And in season four, that heart is shattered into pieces. The season’s final three episodes put Suzanne through one ordeal after another — whether it’s an unwelcome physical confrontation with her estranged girlfriend Maureen Kukudio (Emily Althaus), the breakdown during a peaceful protest that results in a chaotic scene and the death of friend and fellow inmate Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley), or the tragic backstory that finally explains what sent Suzanne to prison.

Variety spoke with two-time Emmy winner Uzo Aduba about filming these “intense” episodes back-to-back, working with “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner for the first time, how the show handles the serious issue of mental illness, and her memories of an intimate send-off dinner with Wiley and co-stars Taylor Schilling and Kate Mulgrew.

Second Opinion – The Conjuring 2 (2016)

18 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Conjuring 2, 2016.

Directed by James Wan.

Starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Frances O’Connor, Madison Wolfe, Simon McBurney and Franke Potente.

Synopsis:

Enfield, North London, 1977. The Hodgson family are plagued by a terrifying poltergeist, attracting the attention of American paranormal investigators, Ed & Lorraine Warren, who must take a leap of faith to help them…

If ever proof existed that ghosts and poltergeists are much more than just fiction, the Enfield haunting of 1977 is probably the closest we’ve ever gotten, making it ripe for big screen adaptation and a perfect choice when it comes to a sequel to The Conjuring. Arguably one of the most potent, stylish and ultimately scary horror movies of the last decade, James Wan’s original fictionalised the real-life work of legendary, God-fearing married American paranormal investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren, who anyone with even a passing interest in paranormal activity will probably have heard of. »

Is The Conjuring 3 About Werewolves?

13 June 2016 5:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Wan is at the absolute top of his game right now. The Conjuring 2 beat out both Warcraft and Now You See Me 2 at the box office this weekend and his previous film Furious 7 went on to be one of the highest grossing films of all time. It is a foregone conclusion at this point that The Conjuring 3 is going to happen, but what will it be about? Well, as it turns out, maybe about werewolves.

In a recent interview with Cinemablend while out doing press for The Conjuring 2, the subject of where the franchise could go came up. Though they have focused on Exorcist esque hauntings up to this point, the idea of shaking it up for a third entry certainly doesn't appear to be out of the question. When asked if he would be interested in doing something involving werewolves, Wan seemed not only receptive, but enthusiastic about the prospect.

"Maybe we can go and do it like a classic American Werewolf in London style. That would be awesome! The Warrens set against the backdrop of The Hound of Baskerville. That would be awesome."

The idea wasn't founded in total and complete randomness either. The Conjuring franchise has been based on the case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the films. Though most of their cases are about demonic possessions, Ed Warren did publish a book in 1991 called Werewolf: A True Story of Demonic Possession. With some adjustments to the source material, it could make for a very cool possession and monster movie simultaneously, and Wan seems like the right guy to do it.

Warner Bros. has not confirmed plans for a third installment of The Conjuring franchise yet, but after the very successful opening weekend and another round of very positive critical reception, it wouldn't at all be surprising if we get an announcement sometime soon. James Wan did mention that he, the writers and the studio have already been sifting through some of the other Warren case files to figure out which ones might lend themselves to a good third installment. But the short list right now isn't all that short.

"They have a lot of cases. I'm not sitting there sifting through every single one, but I think, you know, between the writers and the studio, I think they have a short list of their favorite, like basically the top 20 or 30 of the Warren's favorite cases."

Wan is moving back to the world of big budget action next, but this time it will be in the superhero landscape as Warner Bros. has tapped him to direct Aquaman. Production should be starting on that film just after Justice League wraps up and has a July 27, 2018 release date, which might make it tricky for Wan to squeeze in The Conjuring 3 should it get the greenlight. Either way, Wan will probably at least be back as a producer but Warner Bros. would very likely want him in the director's chair if at all possible. The Conjuring 2 is in theaters now. »

Interview: James Wan on His Creative Process, Returning to Horror with The Conjuring 2 and His Approach to Aquaman

9 June 2016 1:31 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ever since his first feature film, Saw, was unleashed on unsuspecting audiences at Sundance in 2004, James Wan has continued to leave an indelible mark on the world of modern horror, creating two successful franchises—the aforementioned Saw and Insidious—and crafting several other truly remarkable genre efforts along the way, including Dead Silence and Death Sentence.

This weekend, Wan is hoping for a franchise three-peat with The Conjuring 2, his stunning sequel to 2013’s highly successful supernatural tale about the work of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren, two paranormal investigators who tackled evil time and time again throughout their careers. The follow-up film takes the couple to Enfield, England, where they must help the Hodgson family deal with an entity that is relentlessly tormenting them, especially young Janet (Madison Wolfe), who has become a pawn for the angry spirit.

Review: The Conjuring 2 is a Confident and Thrilling Return to Horror for James Wan

2 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There’s no denying that as far as modern filmmakers go, James Wan is in a class of his own. For over the last 12 years, he’s been the driving force behind numerous great horror films (I’m even a sucker for his criminally underrated Dead Silence), and he even rose to the gargantuan challenge that came with helming last year’s Furious 7. And before he dives into the world of Aquaman, Wan returns to his cinematic roots this summer with a special treat for horror fans: a thrilling sequel to The Conjuring that’s even better than its incredibly well-made predecessor and proves that character-driven genre stories are still the best way to scare the pants off audiences.

Simply put, The Conjuring 2 might very well be the best horror movie we’ve seen from James Wan yet, marking a confident return to horror for the director who »

John Travolta and Rob Lowe on Comedy, Favorite Roles and the Secret of their Long Careers

1 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When John Travolta sat down with Rob Lowe at Variety’s “Actors on Actors” studio, they bonded immediately. It wasn’t just about their impressively long careers, though they did swap tales about the pitfalls they’ve faced throughout. Or their ability to transition from television to film and back again. But Lowe stunned Travolta (and the audience) with his tale of being disappointed at missing out on the role of Christian Troy in “Nip/Tuck” — and confronting Ryan Murphy. When he finally met the producer, Lowe said Murphy told him, “Rob, don’t you know I wrote that part for you?” But the script never made its way to the actor, because, as Lowe recalled, Murphy was “not Ryan Murphy yet,” he said. “Isn’t that a great Hollywood story?”
