Updated! A motif that I noticed recurring during the just-wrapped London Film Festival has inspired me to add two more kinds of men whom I am tired of being asked to sympathize with:
men suffering for their art
men making other people suffer for their art
(Please note that my tiredness with how often these types of men appear in stories that ask us to feel for them does not automatically mean that I cannot feel for them, or that I didn’t end up enjoying their stories. It means only that I wish we would see as many stories about women doing these things whom male moviegoers would be expected to sympathize with.)
I was already on edge before last night’s Oscars, when a recent viewing of The Great Beauty, nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, infuriated me with its pretentious bullshit. Pretentious bullshit is always bad enough, »

Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara announced that they’d be making a feature film about The Flash during Time Warner’s earnings meeting Wednesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Tsujihara also announced that Miller had landed the part of the DC Comics superhero. The movie is set to hit theaters in 2018.
Flash is the superhero alter ego of Barry Allen, a young man who has both super speed and reflexes. As a member of the Justice League it stands to reason that Miller will also be appearing in some of the upcoming Justice League movies, the first of which is slated to come out in 2017.
On the small screen, CW launched The Flash TV series this year, »
It’s been a busy day for release-date roulette at the studios, and now Fox has made a couple of moves. The studio has moved next year’s assassin thriller Hitman: Agent 47 from February 27 to August 28, a six-month bump. The Rupert Friend-Zachary Quinto vidgame adaptation now will open against the Weinstein Co’s Ethan Hawke-Emma Watson thriller Regression. In a lower-profile move for a higher-profile movie, Fox also said the long-in-the-works sequel Independence Day 2 has moved out of the 2016 Fourth of July weekend to the previous frame. It’s now set to land June 24, where the pic will duke it out Universal’s horror reboot The Mummy.
Earlier today, Paramount shifted the dates for its Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Scouts Vs. Zombies, and the Weinstein Co reslotted Paddington and Underdogs.

We loved some of the quotes so much, we decided to make pinnable graphics of our favorites! Keep scrolling and prepare to pin. »
Kristen Stewart has some choice words for young female celebrities who actively try to avoid labeling themselves as feminists. The actress - who has been vocal about fighting for women's equality in the past - opened up about the trend of celebrities who actively refuse to label themselves as "feminists" because they feel that the word is associated with being antimen. Kristen told the Daily Beast: "That's such a strange thing to say, isn't it? Like, what do you mean? Do you not believe in equality for men and women? I think it's a response to overly-aggressive types. There are a lot of women who feel persecuted and go on about it, and I sometimes am like, 'Honestly, just relax, because now you're going in the other direction.' Sometimes, the loudest voice in the room isn't necessarily the one you should listen to. By our nature alone, think about »
Viola Davis teared up talking about her upbringing.
Viola Davis' is not just bringing awareness to hungry children and families, it's a cause that hits her close to home.
News: Reese Witherspoon Is Excited About Malala's Nobel Peace Prize
When she received the award, she opened up about how she was one of the 17 million kids who didn't know where she would get her next meal.
In tears, she said, "Although my childhood was filled with many happy memories, it was also spent in abject poverty."
She describes what she went through as a child, "I did everything to get food. I have stolen for food. I have jumped in huge garbage bins with maggots for food. I have befriended people in the neighborhood, who I knew »
The Queen of the Tearling — the first installment in a trilogy of novels by Erika Johansen that has already been optioned for a Warner Bros. franchise to star Emma Watson, reuniting her with Harry Potter producer David Heyman — has been called “the female Game of Thrones” and “the lady Game of Thrones.” This is funny, of course, because the female version of Game of Thrones is ... Game of Thrones, which has its own dominating female characters, like Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Brienne of Tarth, Arya Stark, Asha/Yara Greyjoy, Melisandre, and on and on. So while the phrasing in the hype surrounding The Queen of the Tearling (which HarperCollins published in July) is a bit off, some undeniable parallels can be found between the Johansen novel and the George R.R. Martin book series that spawned HBO’s Thrones, and you’ll find references to other fantasy titles as well. Here »

Plaid is the chameleon trend of our generation. Now, we realize this is a bold statement, but hear us out on this one! Plaid can be acceptable in any situation! It can be worn as a "grunge" look, it can be mistaken as "farmer fashion," Or, when pulled off correctly, plaid has the possibility to look fabulously chic as seen on all three of these A-Listers! When talking about Hollywood's hottest fashion trendsetters, it is hard to have a conversation without mentioning the always-gorgeous Emma Watson. Here she pairs a fit and flare plaid Alexander McQueen dress with a dual zipper leather jacket at the GQ Awards in Los Angeles. Jessica Simpson hits the street looking like she is stepping out on a »

Patti Smith loves movies. A few days before we chatted about her Best Original Song contender "Mercy Is" from Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," Smith and her friend Ralph Fiennes took in two screenings at the currently running New York Film Festival: Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner" followed by Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice." The double feature was "quite a juxtaposition," she says with a laugh (Smith enjoyed both films). And it's her taste for movie-going that landed her a job writing the haunting melody that underscores Aronofsky's film. The two first met when they bumped into each other at the Venice Film Festival, catching one another at films and chatting between screenings. Three years later, their off-the-cuff conversation is now an Oscar-eligible single. "Mercy Is" is not the first of Smith's songs to feature in a Hollywood picture, but it is her first original writing for screen. Below, she »

Believe it or not, but it’s been nearly four years since we were blessed with a new Harry Potter film. And it’s been 13 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone hit theaters. Now, the actors who portrayed the beloved child wizards are all grown up. Some are movie stars. Some are television staples. And some are just plain hot.
The most recent Potter alum to hit it big is Alfred Enoch, who played Hogwarts classmate Dean Thomas in the films. Now, Enoch stars alongside Academy Award nominee Viola Davis in the hit ABC show How to Get Away with Murder. Not too shabby for the once-little Gryffindor. But, of course, he’s not the only one. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) are two of the biggest film stars on the planet, and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) is set to »

It seems like everyone is talking about feminism lately, including Aziz Ansari.
The comedian declared himself a feminist during an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, citing his influential girlfriend as "a big feminist." Then he opened it up to the audience, asking the crowd to clap if they too considered themselves feminists.
Watch: Nasim Pedrad Does a Mean Aziz Impression
Those who didn't clap were then treated to a lesson in gender equality.
"If you look up feminist in the dictionary, it just means someone who believes men and women have equal rights," Ansari said before launching into a pitch-perfect pop culture example.
Even before Emma Watson took the stage at the Un to give a speech about feminism, and before the video was shared by everyone you know on Facebook, and everyone was talking about her and whether she should be the face of modern feminism…before all that, she was still our boss ass witch. Throughout all eight Harry Potter films, Watson played Hermione Granger, the female member of the Holy Trinity that also includes Harry and Ron Weasley. Though Harry is ostensibly the hero of the series, considering it’s named after him, Hermione is the ingenious character and the one that saves the day more often than not. Many have pointed this out, but it’s worth saying it explicitly: Hermione Granger is the hero of the Harry Potter series.
The Harry Potter books and films are a wealth of great characters, including many wizards, but the number of »

In the past, feminism in the mainstream media has been quite polarizing, with many equating the movement with an aggressive man-hating (which obviously just isn’t true). But this year, celebrities have been rallying behind the feminist cause and doing what they can to detach negative stigmas from the word and its associated beliefs. The latest celeb to fight the feminist fight is Emma Watson, who spoke before the United Nations in September and implored men and women alike to adopt feminist values — namely, equality between the sexes and the breaking down of toxic stereotypes.
2014 isn’t quite over yet, but feminism has been the hot topic for celebs. From Taylor Swift‘s most recent defection to the feminist camp on French-Canadian TV to Amy Poehler‘s consistent flying of the feminist flag, it’s been a good year for the ladies. But it’s not just »

One of my favorite films this year is writer/director Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash. The film stars Miles Teller as a jazz drummer who aspires to greatness under a ruthless instructor, played brilliantly by J.K. Simmons. While the film focuses on musicians, it’s really about anyone trying to become great at something and the cost of achieving said goal. Trust me, it’s a great movie and something you should seek out this weekend when it opens in limited release. For more on the film, read Matt’s review or watch the trailer. A few days ago I landed a great interview with Damien Chazelle. He talked about what 2014 has been like after playing film festivals around the world, drawing from his own drumming experiences, the universality of the film, working with Blumhouse Productions, and more. In addition, Chazelle talked about his two upcoming projects, La La Land, and a Neil Armstrong biopic. »

Why isn't Julia Louis-Dreyfus in more movies? Yes, there are likely personal and professional reasons that keep one of the funniest ladies in Hollywood away from the big screen, but allow us to throw up our arms and demand more. Louis-Dreyfus has dominated television since the '80s (revisit her "Saturday Night Live" work and prepare to go bananas), "Seinfeld" making her a household name and providing a curse that only she could break. The success of "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Veep" rests entirely on Louis-Dreyfus shoulders. Maybe the weekly format provides a comfort, maybe Hollywood just isn't writing roles for funny women (that's not really a maybe, but let's not digress), but we're tired of the small screen having all the Julia Louis-Dreyfus fun. Her latest accolade only rubs it in. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles announced Monday that Louis-Dreyfus would »
Having been in the spotlight pretty much as long as we can remember, you may think you know everything there is to know about Emma Watson. She played everyone's favourite wizarding book-worm for ten years, she empowers women all around the world with her bad-ass feminist 'tude and was allegedly the victim of one of history's greatest ever heckles.
But if you don't already love her after all of that, Digital Spy has waved its magic wand over the internet to try to come up with some lesser-known facts that will increase your love for Emma to stratospheric levels.
1. Born Emma Charlotte Deurre Watson on April 15, 1990, Emma did most of her growing up in Oxfordshire. However, she was actually born in Paris while her lawyer parents Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson were working in the French capital. It was only at the age of 5 that she moved to England after her parents' divorce, »
For the second time, Brit comedian Rob Brydon ("The Trip to Italy") will host. BBC America will broadcast the event for the third year on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 9pm Et. BAFTA La Chairman Nigel Daly said of Louis-Dreyfus: “Her ability to create iconic, enduring characters like Selina Meyer, Christine Campbell, Elaine Benes, and her most recent role as Eva in 'Enough Said,' is such that it is impossible to imagine the last 20 years of comedy without her." Louis-Dreyfus is guaranteed to be hugely entertaining. Also on stage this year will be would-be Oscar contenders, per usual, "The Judge" star Robert Downey Jr. (the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film) and "Mr. Turner" writer-director Mike Leigh (the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing). Other honorees are "Noah" star Emma Watson (British Artist of the Year); "Begin Again" and "The Normal Heart" star »
