DreamWorks Is Producing A 3D Computer Animated Post-Apocalyptic Feature w/ A Black Girl At The Center

15 April 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

DreamWorks Animation studios plans to add a little, shall we say, "color" to its growing, rather *vanilla* portfolio of movies, with its next project, titled Home, a 3D computer-animated feature film set in the future, which is based on Adam Rex's children's book The True Meaning of Smekday, and stars Rihanna (providing the voice for the starring character - an enterprising girl named Tip), Jennifer LopezJim Parsons, and Steve Martin.  It's certainly not often that black girls (or boys) are at the center of 3D computer-animated feature films set in the future, produced by Hollywood movie studios. Tim Johnson is directing the film which is described »

Andrew Garfield To Host SNL May 3rd

Saturday Night Live has had a pretty interesting season so far. They have had some good hosts (Lena Dunham, Anna Kendrick) and they have had some bad hosts (Jim Parsons). In a way, you can still fill them reeling from the loss of most of their regulars, as well as them trying to work with [&hellip

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Did Seth Rogen play it too safe? -- Vote

14 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Perhaps Seth Rogen’s latest Saturday Night Live episode wasn’t especially inspired: it opened with the requisite weed jokes, made fun of his oft-imitated laugh, and leaned on some unnecessary celebrity cameos. But if you love Rogen’s slacker comedy, maybe that was exactly what you tuned in for. At least he didn’t tap dance or juggle torches to prove that he’s not just a funny guy.

Voters in our ongoing third annual Mr. Saturday Night contest will have to decide whether Rogen played it too safe for a guy who was hosting for the third time, »

What Films Will Show Up at the 2014 Cannes Film Festivalc

14 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This Thursday, April 17, the complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival line-up will be announced and while this will be my first year since 2010 that I won't be in attendance I still can't help but be curious and excited. We know Grace of Monaco will serve as the opener and have also learned in the last 48 hours Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice won't be in attendance, which eliminates two of the potentially major entrants, but what's leftc It's more or less confirmed David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars will be in the line-up. Other very likely candidates include Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman and The Rover starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce. I expect The Rover will be a Director's Fortnight entrant. Other strong competitors with a larger amount of audience awareness include Xavier Dolan's Mommy, »

Watch: New Teaser For 'The Normal Heart' With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Raises Its Voice

13 April 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We'll know in a few days if our prediction that "The Normal Heart" will be hitting the Cannes Film Festival is accurate, but until then, a new teaser for the HBO film is here. The drama is based on the acclaimed play by Larry Kramer, chronicling the onset of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s as gay activists and concerned doctors fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic. And it's a wrenching tale, with Mark Ruffalo's line, "I am trying understand why nobody gives a shit, now we're dying," resonating pretty hard. Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch (along with a questionable wig) and Jim Parsons co-star with Ryan Murphy behind the camera. "The Normal Heart" debuts on HBO on May 25th. Watch below. »

MTV Movie Awards: Director Troy Miller explains how Conan O'Brien scored those 50 cameos for the opener -- Exclusive

13 April 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When you’re hosting the MTV Movie Awards and promise viewers “The Biggest One You’ll Ever See,” opening with any old been-there-done-that monologue is no longer an option. Conan O’Brien was acutely aware of that challenge when he opted to attempt the Movie Awards’ boldest coup yet and score 50 celebrity cameos within the first five minutes of the show.

As you’ve now seen, O’Brien managed to pull off the feat. But he didn’t do it alone. Director Troy Miller tells EW how MTV assembled this “whirlwind of a celebrity-fest” (full list at bottom), which included appearances by Taylor Swift, »

Recap: Saturday Night Live with Seth Rogen and Ed Sheeran

12 April 2014 8:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s almost five years to the day that Seth Rogen last hosted “Saturday Night Live.” (Somewhat amusingly, his “Neighbors” co-star Zac Efron hosted the very next week.) Meanwhile, over the last five episodes, “SNL” itself has survived a rather rocky start to the post-Seth Meyers Era with a string of solid albeit non-classic episodes after the Jim Parsons-hosted debacle. Heading into its final break of the season, it will be interesting to see if the show ends on an upswing or downswing heading into the final stretch of this flawed yet fascinating season. As always, I’ll be liveblogging, assigning grades to each segment. As always, those grades are designed in a lab to make the maximum number of people on the internet angry. They couldn’t possibly be an inherently imperfect way for one person to sum up his or her thoughts about a sketch comedy show in real time. »

Watch! Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch, Mark Ruffalo Discuss “The Normal Heart”

10 April 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons, Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss HBO’s much-anticipated The Normal Heart.

They all realize the importance of the project, and reflect on how it brought the gay community together. Taylor, bless his heart, talks about the crotch in his 80′s jeans. I’m fine with that.

Watch: Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch and Matt Bomer Discuss 'The Normal Heart' (and Kitsch Explains Why He Had To Get The Crotch of His Jeans 'Elongated')

10 April 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With its premiere just over a month away (and the potential that it will screen in Cannes first to be officially known next Thursday), the press blitz for Ryan Murphy's adaptation of Larry Kramer's AIDS drama "The Normal Heart" is ramping up, with an extensive, must-read cover story on this week's The Hollywood Reporter.   The story came with the below video that "goes behind the scenes of the photo shoot" (zzzz) but also gives four of the films actors -- Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch and Matt Bomer -- the chance to discuss the importance of the film for them, and in Kitsch's case, the importance of a tailor so that his crotch could, um, fit into his 1980s-era jeans (Bomer and Parsons' faces when he tells this story are priceless).

‘Wish I Was Here’, directed by Zach Braff, releases its first trailer

9 April 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Zach Braff is best known for his role on the tv sitcom Scrubs, many were surprised to see him step behind the camera for his 2004 filmmaking debut Garden State. Many were curious to see what Braff’s next effort behind the camera may bring, curiosity which was heightened when the performer put the movie up on the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter for donations from fans to finance the film. Titled Wish I Was Here, the movie soon became one of the highest funded projects on the site. Along with taking on directorial duties, Braff also shares writing duties with Adam Braff, and stars in the film alongside Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Joey King, Jim Parsons, and Donald Faison. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

First Trailer for Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here Lands

9 April 2014 2:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A delightful new trailer for the upcoming comedy Wish I Was Here has come online.

Director Zach Braff’s follow-up to his indie breakout hit Garden State is the story of a thirtysomething man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. The Hollywood Reporter‘s Boyd van Hoeij called it, “A more mature work from actor-director-producer Zach Braff that feels like a Garden State for grown-ups.

HitFix‘s Drew McWeeny wrote, “this is the film that he took to Kickstarter, even as people complained about the idea of a millionaire asking people for hand-outs. Beyond that, though, hating “Garden State” has become a cottage industry. The only thing Braff could possibly do to counter all of the naysayers would be to make a genuinely great movie…. which, thankfully, is exactly what he did. »

Zach Braff's New Movie Is So the Sequel to Garden State

9 April 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When Zach Braff first announced his Kickstarter campaign to fund his new project Wish I Was Here (on the heels of Veronica Mars' historic success), I was cautiously optimistic. As a huge fan of Garden State, I have been hoping for a movie that captures the same boldness and relatability - possibly with another life-changing soundtrack. The trailer for Wish I Was Here is a great start. It doesn't say much about the plot, though we know the movie stars Braff as a father/actor struggling to find his identity. Kate Hudson also stars, though you won't see a ton of her here. You will see: a variety of unique dolls, Joey King with a sweet wig, a dying Mandy Patinkin, and Braff's Scrubs costar/best friend Donald Faison. Jim Parsons, who appeared as the knight in Garden State, will be back as well. The trailer features The Shins' "Simple Song, »

Zach Braff’s Crowd-Funded Feature ‘Wish I Was Here’ Gets a Teaser Trailer

9 April 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After nearly a decade-long break from feature film directing, Scrubs star Zach Braff is making a comeback this year with Wish I Was Here, a comedy drama and spiritual sequel to Garden State about a thirty-something struggling actor who finds himself in desperate financial straits and is forced to home school his two children.

The first teaser trailer for Wish I Was Here has now been released, and its not shy about echoing Garden State‘s tone or soundtrack. The Shins are back, serenading the mostly dialogue-free trailer with “Simple Song,” and Braff is joined in the cast by Kate Hudson, Joey King and The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons (who also made a memorable short appearance in Garden State).

Wish I Was Here caused quite a stir even before it began production, as Braff ...
