41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

Super Bowl: Watch the Players Try to Sing Along to Katy Perry

27 January 2015 6:58 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et was on the ground for Super Bowl media day in Arizona on Tuesday, testing some of the toughest football players on the planet about their knowledge of halftime artist Katy Perry.

Et's Kevin Frazier and special correspondent Michelle Williams got stars from both the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks to sing some of Katy's biggest hits, and even got Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch to bust out a tune.

Video: Seattle Seahawks Star Marshawn Lynch Sings in Rare Interview With Et!

Instead of Katy Perry, Lynch belted out the chorus from "Nights Like This" featured on the soundtrack of the 1991 classic The Five Heartbeats.

As a reward for playing along, Et gave the players Xbox Ones -- a prize Lynch is sending to a good cause.

"One lucky kid from my [Fam 1st Family Foundation] will be going home with an Xbox One as soon as I get home from the Super Bowl," Lynch said.

Seattle Seahawks Star Marshawn Lynch Sings in Rare Interview With Et!

27 January 2015 3:21 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Laconic Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch remained closed-off to most outlets during Super Bowl media day on Tuesday in Arizona, but Et special correspondent Michelle Williams got him to open up in a sweet moment.

News: Which Side are the Celebrities On This Super Bowl?

As she did with all the other players, Williams tried to get Lynch to put his golden pipes on display and join the Destiny's Child singer in singing a Katy Perry song when she caught up with him backstage, but she didn't expect a lot of participation. During his time at the podium, Lynch told reporters bluntly, "I'm here so I won't get fined."

According to Espn, the NFL warned Lynch that he could face a $500,000 fine if he failed to make himself available on media day.

"I have to sing?" Lynch asked Williams. "I run into people, though. I think it'd be better if you sing."

StreamFix: 6 Oscar Frontrunners in Great Roles on Netflix

26 January 2015 5:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Newsflash: We still have awhile before the Oscars. It's like a month away. But we can prepare anyway by revisiting the greatest hits of our leading nominees in the acting categories. Put on your angriest Annette Bening face and join us for this trip into prestige pictures currently streaming on Netflix. "The Kids are All Right" (Julianne Moore) Julianne Moore didn't pick up a nomination, but costars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo did in this family drama (with funny moments) about a lesbian couple attempting to embrace the new-found presence of their kids' sperm donor. "The Kids are All Right" feels like a lost James L. Brooks gem set in 2010, and every performance has endearing and (intentionally) maddening moments. Julianne might play the most conflicted character at all, and she wears that indecision and personal guilt well.  "My Week With Marilyn" (Eddie Redmayne) Is this a great movie? No. In fact, »

Movie Review – Wild (2014)

18 January 2015 2:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wild, 2014.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée.

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Gaby Hoffman and Kevin Rankin.

Synopsis:

A chronicle of one woman’s 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.

Few mainstream American films play around with memory as well as Wild. Jean-Marc Vallee’s adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, about her time spent trekking America’s Pacific Crest Trail as a way of expunging herself of myriad personal problems, is strongly reminiscent of the feminist travelogue Tracks from last year, only Wild is much more accomplished. It feels like the journey in Vallee’s film, for one, has purpose beyond acting as a pretty brochure for tourists.

Wild has its gorgeous environs, but it’s more honest and uglier. Not just because of the roughness of the handheld camerawork, but because Vallee gets as close as he can to exposing us to uncomfortable truth. »

15 January 2015 2:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Ava DuVernay’s “Selma,” Simon Curtis’ “Woman in Gold” and Anton Corbijn’s “Life” will screen at the Berlin Film Festival as part of the Berlinale Special program.

Selma,” which stars David Oyelowo and Tom Wilkinson, makes its international premiere in Berlin. It was described by Variety‘s reviewer as a “razor-sharp portrait of the civil rights movement.” Pic has made faltering progress in the awards season, mainly due to the lack of screeners.

Life,” which world premieres in Berlin, stars Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan. Pic is inspired by the true story of a friendship that developed between Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and actor James Dean when Stock was commissioned to photograph the actor for Life magazine in 1955. Corbijn’s previous pics are “Control” and “A Most Wanted Man.”

Woman in Gold,” which is another world premiere, stars Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Brühl. It centers on a Jewish woman, »

Last fall brought news of Matt Damon teaming up with his Margaret director Kenneth Lonergan again for a new drama called Manchester-by-the-Sea.

Suddenly he finds himself having to take care of his brother's 16-year old son but also finds himself crumbling due to a secret tragedy in his past. More below! In addition, THR reports My Week with Marilyn star Michelle Williams will play Affleck's wife in the drama.

Bradley Cooper May Direct ‘Honeymoon With Harry,’ Michelle Williams Joins 'Manchester-by-the-Sea' & More

9 January 2015 3:52 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A project that was once set up as a possible film for Jonathan Demme, it fell apart a few years ago, and not much as been heard from it since. But it seems originally attached stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro still want to make "Honeymoon With Harry" happen. Today, Dan Fogelman ("Crazy Stupid Love") was tasked with rewriting the script, and it has emerged that Cooper has an eye on directing the movie himself. The story follows an alcoholic (Cooper) who reforms his ways after falling in love with a girl. When she dies on the eve of their wedding, he relapses, crossing paths with her father (De Niro) on the honeymoon they should have taken. A bit contrived perhaps, but given their chemistry, as seen already in "Limitless" and in particular "Silver Linings Playbook," this could work. [Deadline] Well, this keeps getting better. With Casey Affleck replacing Matt Damon, »

Sienna Miller Will Follow Emma Stone In Broadway’s ‘Cabaret’

7 January 2015 11:02 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Some hit shows fade into the record books before quietly expiring. Not Cabaret, the revived revival that brought Alan Cumming back to Studio 54 last spring in the role of the Emcee that first won him a Tony Award in 1998 and ran 2,378 regular performances. Sienna Miller, a key player in two of the year’s most talked-about films— Foxcatcher and American Sniper — will play the jagged-edged Weimar-era chanteuse Sally Bowles for the show’s final six weeks, beginning February 17. The show, currently co-starring Linda Emond, Danny Burstein and Bill Heck, is scheduled to close on March 29 (but who knows?).

The Sam Mendes-Rob Marshall production for the Roundabout Theatre Company returned with Michelle Williams making her Broadway debut. Emma Stone, riding the wave of brilliant notices for her role as Michael Keaton’s truth-telling daughter in Birdman, took over and proved to be a superb foil for Cumming in her Broadway bow. »

Suite Francaise

It will be intriguing to see how Saul Dibb’s long-awaited adaptation of Irène Némirovsky’s novel deals with a problem that has often  confounded British film-makers: how to portray French characters played by English-speaking actors in Nazi-occupied, wartime Paris without slipping into ’Allo ’Allo!-style caricature. Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas lead Dibb’s promising cast.
