Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

24 July 2015 11:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People., for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

Film Review: Deep Thoughts, Shallow Characters in ‘Irrational Man’

24 July 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – At this point in his stellar career, what is fascinating about Woody Allen is basically what he thinks about. He is a successful, family-stable, millionaire filmmaker with mortality issues. In “Irrational Man,” he ponders the existential question of “what lights the spark of life?”

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The other question – in critical circles – is always, “what kind of Woody Allen will show up?” In assessing his long career, there are masterpieces, middle-of-the-roaders and duds, but it’s his dogged pursuit of making movies that is always welcome, and oddly comforting. “Irrational Man” is a middle-of-the-roader with flashes of brilliance, but the thin way Allen draws the characters – students and professors in an academic setting – is very irritating in the context of what he ponders. The film is less of an entertainment than a philosophical exercise, and Woody does attempt to have a meaningful discussion about a very piquant subject, but ultimately »

Poll: The celebrity you honestly believe is your friend

24 July 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Celebrities are not our friends. They're just not! They're business people who conduct simulacrums of the human experience in front of us. It's silly to relate to them -- sillier yet to believe they understand us.  But I can't help it. I believe certain celebrities just know me, and we hang out, and we've laughed together, and we're not creeped out that only one of us can see the other. It's a perfect relationship and no one can take that away from us/me.  So, poll time: Who's your celebrity "friend"? Recently I've found that Kate McKinnon, the "SNL" cast member, is one of my good friends. Most of McKinnon's characters are broad, nervy takes, the kinds of impressions you might do for your friends at a party to creep them out. I appreciate that moxie and mistake it for a personal act of friendship on a regular basis. Unlike Kristen Wiig, »

Exclusive Portraits: Woody Allen, Parker Posey on the Chicago Red Carpet for ‘Irrational Man’

24 July 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – It was a Chicago moment for the legendary filmmaker Woody Allen, as he walked the Red Carpet on behalf of his latest film, “Irrational Man.” He was joined by a co-star in the film, Parker Posey, and was there to capture these Exclusive Portraits.

Irrational Man” is Woody Allen’s 47th film as director, an amazing output for an American filmmaker, and unlikely to be duplicated for mainstream releases in the future. He began with “What’s Up, Tiger Lily?” in 1966, won an Oscar for directing Annie Hall (1977) and has written or co-written every screenplay he has ever filmed. “Irrational Man” is another Woody Allen contemplative film, set on a college campus, regarding a philosophy professor (Joaquin Phoenix) who shakes himself out of a case of »

Why Taylor Swift jokes will always be funny and necessary

23 July 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I spend a lot of time writing jokes (and non-jokes) about celebrities, and here's a secret about that trade: It's easy to get sick of celebrities! When Zooey Deschanel emerged as a breakout star on "New Girl," it took about 20 minutes before every comic's version of an adorkable punchline felt stale and annoying, even if it was right on. The Justin Bieber renaissance was worse. He's still impossible to mock without feeling like a pox on humanity. Did you see his Comedy Central roast? That looked like a room of struggling pros to me. Only Martha Stewart and her artisanal, nutmeg-dappled prison jokes soared. Celebrities can often be reduced to one or two barbs ("Tom Cruise is delirious! And perhaps closeted!"), and if you have an assistant with Twitter, it doesn't take long to be in on those. Fortunately there is an everlasting wellspring in the celebrity joke universe, and her name is Taylor Swift. »

Graphic Liner: How to Take the Bold Eye Look From Runway to Real Way

21 July 2015 6:51 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

In the realm of all things style, there's a fine line between couture and costume. Case met point when we tried replicating the bold graphic eye looks from the latest crop of runway shows. Let's just say E! HQ started to look a lot like Comic-Con. The truth is colorful or graphic eye looks are a tad unrealistic. Artistic and beautiful, the precise lines and shapes are a little severe for a grocery store run. There are, after all, only a few celebs—Emma Stone, Zoë Kravitz and Sophia Bush included—that dare attempt the trend with winning results. Thankfully, E! Style Collective's Tina Turnbow, makeup artist to stars like Laura Prepon and Keri Russell, explained how to translate the trend »

Last Week On Late Night, 7/20/15: Conan says teens don’t like weed, and John Oliver says Americans need to eat more food

20 July 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The summer is a confusing time for late night shows. With vacation time, shows are often off, then on, seemingly at random. When shows do air, there’s fewer dangerous animals on, and more affect-less athletes. And yet, some really funny things happen on late night during these lesser watched months. Jimmy Fallon nearly lost a hand, Conan rode into Comic-Con with a Mad Max war band. We got to see Colbert interview Eminem on Monroe, Michigan public access TV. Jon Stewart’s Daily Show month long “moment of zen” farewell continues, streaming every episode back-to-back, available globally. It wasn’t all bad.

Last week, Bill Hader and Amy Schumer were doing the rounds for Trainwreck, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were reunited with Jimmy, Emma Stone was on Conan, Meyers got a dose of Schumer and Jim Gaffigan, and Corden horsed around with Ian McKellen. Plus, John Oliver took »

Dance Me to My Song rewatched: a profoundly moving drama about living with cerebral palsy

18 July 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Director Rolf de Heer collaborated with actor and disability rights campaigner Heather Rose on a love triangle drama unlike any other

The panning last year of Chris Lilley’s “brownface” in the ABC’s Jonah From Tonga program and the recent tsunami of criticism hurled at director Cameron Crowe for casting white-as-white-can-be Emma Stone as a half-Asian character in romantic comedy Aloha reminded film-makers of a pertinent message: the days when actors were afforded carte blanche to play whichever characters they like are over.

In this context, writer/director Rolf de Heer’s acclaimed 1998 drama Dance Me to My Song presents the fascinating possibility the debate could extend further than race and into other areas such as disability. An achingly genuine and profoundly moving drama about a woman born with cerebral palsy, the film was based on a fictitious screenplay that nevertheless closely mirrors the experiences of its star and co-writer Heather Rose, »

Philosophy Is Dangerous in ‘Irrational Man’

18 July 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cinema’s obsession with the idea of a perfect murder is quite grotesque. The macabre fascination only cements what Francois Truffaut once said, “Film lovers are sick people.” Perfect murders are a form of intellectual freak show, and Irrational Man, Woody Allen’s newest feature, tackles on the visual and physical allure of taking a person’s life. A much less heavy-handed effort than the director’s previous Magic in the Moonlight, Irrational Man stays light while dissecting the ennui of existing.

Abe Lucas (Joaquin Phoenix), a philosophy professor, arrives at the campus of the fictional Braylin University a broken man, suffering from a messy divorce and the untimely death of a friend in Iraq. Abe is often filmed from the waist up, exposing his less than attractive physicality. The guy does not walk; he lumbers around with his big belly. Yet women are inexplicably drawn to him, precisely because »

18 July 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Emma Stone has received the highest praise from iconic filmmaker Woody Allen.

The actress is currently starring in Allen's Irrational Man, which sees a tortured philosophy professor find a reason to live when he enters into a relationship with his student (Stone).

"Emma can do everything: She can act, sing, dance, astonish, and she's beautiful and intelligent," Allen told Us Weekly. "She's really got it all. I was writing this script and I was worried about who could possibly pull off this part, and of course Emma could."

Allen said that nobody has anything bad to say about the actress.

He said: "Whenever I've mentioned I'm working with her on a movie, people brighten up, 'Oh I love her!'"

Stone first worked with Allen on 2014 movie Magic in the Moonlight, where she starred opposite Colin Firth.

Irrational Man is out now in North America and will make its UK »

“Irrational Man” and back: Ranking the films of Woody Allen

17 July 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I know I’m one of the few, but in my humble opinion Woody Allen has yet to make an overtly bad film. His best are all time classics, but even his worst are still very much watchable movies that have pleasures to be found within them. On the occasion of the release of his latest outing Irrational Man, I wanted to run down all of Allen’s solo directorial endeavors and rank them. I’ll also be writing a bit about Irrational Man first, but below you’ll find a list of all 45 of his works to date. In the interest of not making this the longest piece in existence, I’m only going to be writing about the top ten, but the list will go down the line of everything he’s made (with the exception of what he didn’t direct, didn’t completely direct, or made »
