Jacob Tremblay Cut the Line to Meet Leonardo DiCaprio Because Adorable 9-Year-Olds Get Away With Everything

2 February 2016 1:06 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jacob Tremblay, star of Room, appeared on his sister's favorite talk show, Ellen, today, and revealed just how he managed to meet Leonardo DiCaprio at the SAG Awards (he cut the line, but it's fine, as long as Leo never called "no cutsies"). At the show, the two wished each other well, but as you might guess, Leo's awards-season luck doesn't go very far. "He won, right? But I didn't win," Tremblay joked. "So if you want to win, you just have to come up to me." Tremblay also said that he wants to be a screenwriter. But please don't green-light his scripts yet, Hollywood. Remember, when Robert Rodriguez based a movie on his kids' ideas, he accidentally launched the career of Taylor Lautner. »

Harker’s Hits: Thursday Roundup

28 January 2016 2:09 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Wistful for your youth? Fear not! Hollywood continues to mine our memories and is bringing back many of our favorite childhood friends!

• Expanding its universe even further, Netflix has announced a new children’s show based on the 1970s toy sensation Stretch Armstrong. The Wrap reports that Netflix is teaming with Hasbro Studios for the 26-episode series, which apparently has nothing to do with the Taylor Lautner film that was talked about for a minute.

• Speaking of throwbacks, DreamWorks has released the first teaser trailer for its film Trolls, which is based on the doll sensation from the ’60s (which is seemingly revived every generation). Check it out here!

• In keeping with the nostalgia vein, Deadline reports that Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess has signed on to write and helm a movie combining the worlds of some of Nickelodeon’s most beloved animated shows, including — but not limited to — Rugrats, »

Netflix is making a Stretch Armstrong series for kids

28 January 2016 12:45 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Once upon, there were plans for a Stretch Armstrong movie, and it was going to star Taylor Lautner and everyone except those making it seemed to strongly believe it was all a bad idea. Well, that concept eventually died a slow inevitable death, and there was a Stretch Armstrong void that existed in the world. Not any more though. Netflix is stepping up to the plate to fill...

Netflix Is Doing a Stretch Armstrong Show, Giving Taylor Lautner One More Reason to Mourn What Might Have Been

28 January 2016 9:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hey, remember Stretch Armstrong? Y'know, the toy that was a dude and you could pull his arms and legs out really far? Maybe you'd try to see if you could dismember him? And that was about all you could do with it? Well, according to Deadline, the good people at Netflix also vaguely remembered this fourth-tier childhood plaything and decided it would be a great idea to green-light an original series for kids that's based on Ol' Stretchy. (In the early 2010s, Taylor Lautner was attached to a Stretch movie, but for a variety of reasons, that project never ended up happening.) The Netflix series follow the adventures of an "overscheduled teenager named Jake Armstrong and his two best friends," who find themselves exposed to a chemical that turns them into "Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters, a team of unlikely stretchable superheroes who expand beyond the confines of their »

Cate Blanchett, Kirsten Dunst, Alicia Vikander Mingle at W Magazine Globes Fete

8 January 2016 10:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“It’s amazing people watching,” noted a male member of Alicia Vikander’s trio of friends, who stood in the packed center of Chateau Marmont’s magazine clip-covered penthouse — where W Magazine (with help from Audi and Dom Perignon) feted this year’s cinematic standouts at their annual Best Performances party on Thursday night.

Golden Globe nominee Kirsten Dunst, early to arrive, made some party rounds with Rodarte designer Kate Mulleavy. Dunst, who said she’s currently working on “Midnight Special” with director Jeff Nichols, told Variety how excited she was about her second-ever Globe nomination, for “Fargo.” (She was first nominated in 1995, for her supporting role in “Interview with the Vampire.”) “Peggy’s such a crazy character, so maybe that’s it!” she speculated, as to why viewers particularly responded to her performance. As her for her own favorites, she was quick to name “Straight Outta Compton” and “Hateful »

21 Possible Explanations as to Why The Ridiculous 6 Is Netflix's Most Streamed Movie

8 January 2016 9:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Netflix announced earlier this week that Adam Sandler's widely maligned Western "parody/comedy" (terms used in their loosest sense) The Ridiculous 6 - a film so lazily racist multiple Native Americans walked off the set while filming and so terrible that it has a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes - is currently its most streamed film. This is … entirely unacceptable, and in a Herculean effort to wrap our brains around why, precisely, this must be, we've brainstormed a list of reasons that could possibly explain it. 1. People think it's Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight and are just »

Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous 6 is the most watched movie in Netflix history

7 January 2016 6:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He may not be popular with everyone, but there’s no arguing Adam Sandler doesn’t have an audience. Even with the box office disappointment of Pixels and critical bombs like That’s My Boy and Grown Ups 2, it’s been revealed that his latest film The Ridiculous 6 is the most watched movie in Netflix history.

The Ridiculous 6, by way of example, in the first 30 days on Netflix it’s been the most-watched movie in the history of Netflix,” the streaming service’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos told press at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show. “It’s also enjoyed a spot at No 1 in every territory we operate in, and in many of them it’s still No 1.”

The Ridiculous 6 is the first of four Adam Sandler movies that will be made exclusively for Netflix, and was in the press early in its production »
