Amandla Stenberg Directed, Shot & Edited a Short Film titled 'The Yellow Wallpaper' - Watch it Now

18 June 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Thanks to Orlando Jones for the heads-up on Twitter (he co-stars with Amandla Stenberg in Fox's "Sleepy Hollow," playing father and daughter). Here's a short film directed, shot and edited (yup, she did all of that) by Stenberg titled, "The Yellow Wallpaper," which is based on the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, that documents the experiences of a woman who's suffering from a mental illness, when she moves into an old house to help clear her mind. Apparently (or maybe not-so much) Stenberg, who's just 15 years old by the way, might have behind-the-camera aspirations; Or it may just be a passing fancy.  The short is classified as "a student film," by the way.

Ten Best: Free-Running / Parkour in Film

29 April 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Since being introduced back in 1997, Parkour has become a key part of many fast-paced action sequences. With the aim being to get from A to B as quickly as possible, it’s easy to see why our protagonists would favour this mode of ‘transport’. With the upcoming release of Brick Mansions on May 2nd, starring Paul Walker and Parkour founder, David Belle (pictured below), we’ve taken a look at some of the best Parkour and free-running scenes, as well as a few that we enjoyed for other reasons.

District B13 (2004) dir. Pierre Morel

David Belle, widely regarded as a founder of the modern parkour movement, eludes a gun-toting gang in a gut-wrenching chase through a French estate block. Impossible precision and stomach-churning drops are the order of the day although we’re unconvinced that the bit with the ladder is allowed in Parkour rules. Casino Royale (2006) dir.

"Rio 2" Movie Review

11 April 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

.Rio 2. flies into theaters near you but is the sequel better than the first? All your favorite characters return for the second one including original director, Carlos Saldanha. The film is music-tinged no wonder many musicians flock to join the sequel including Janelle Monae and Bruno Mars. Before you head out to the theaters, take a look at my review.

Official Plot:

It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids in Rio 2, after they're hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all - his father-in-law. All our favorite Rio characters are back, and they're joined by Oscar (R) nominee Andy Garcia, Grammy (R) winner Bruno Mars, Tony (R) winner Kristin Chenoweth and Oscar/Emmy (R)/Tony winner Rita Moreno.

'Rio 2' - mild entertaining fare (Ians Movie Review)

11 April 2014 12:04 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "Rio 2"; Voiceovers: Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jemaine Clement, Jamie Foxx, will.i.am, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, George Lopez, Kristin Chenoweth, Amandla Stenberg, Bruno Mars, Andy Garcia, Rachel Crow, Pierce Gagnon, Janelle Monae and Bebel Gilberto; Director: Carlos Saldanha; Rating: **1/2

In the last one year, after "Zambezia" and "Free Birds", we once again have animated talking birds in "Rio 2". But unlike the previous two films, this one is a musical which meanders at its own pace with avian antics and foot-tapping music.

A sequel to its 2011 released franchise, with macaws, a cockatoo, a poisonous frog, a toucan, a pit-bull and more from the Amazon, "Rio 2" takes off from where it left in "Rio". This. »

Film Review: ‘Rio 2’

26 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A rather misleading title is just one reason to be slightly suspicious of “Rio 2” an eye-popping, ear-tickling animated sequel that labors to fold a cheeky family sitcom, an earnest environmental primer, an exotic jungle tour, a broad survey of popular music and an avian remake of “Meet the Parents” into one bright and noisy package. Mining an unwieldy number of domestic and ecological dramas from the continuing saga of a rare Brazilian blue macaw, here venturing with his new family into the perilous Amazon rainforest, this hyperactive toon extravaganza has color, flair and energy to burn. But it’s the sort of relentless juggling act that finally proves more exhausting than exhilarating as it lectures you about respecting Mother Nature one minute, knocks you over with a Gloria Gaynor cover the next, and squeezes in a lot of questionable comic relief in between.

For those not inclined to resist »

Tonight: Fox Promises Epic 'Sleepy Hollow' 2-Hour Season Finale - Watch Promo

20 January 2014 10:23 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

How fast time flies; It seems like it was just yesterday when the series debuted, to the excitement of many. Since then, the series has been led by strong ratings, as well as cast additions, including Jill Marie Jones and Amandla Stenberg, culminating in tonight's 2-hour season finale, which Fox calls "epic," as sacrifices are made, worlds collide, loyalties are tested and the town of Sleepy Hollow will never be the same again! I predict record ratings for the episode, which begins at 8/7c, tonight. From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the Star Trek and Transformers franchises, as well as Fringe) comes the adventure thriller Sleepy Hollow. In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction, and that he is humanity's last hope, »

Sleepy Hollow 1.11 “Vessel” a great mix of scares, action, relationships

13 January 2014 9:34 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sleepy Hollow, Season 1: Episode 11 – “Vessel”

Written by Mark Goffman, David McMillan, and Melissa Blake

Directed by Romeo Tirone

Airs Mondays at 9 Pm Est on Fox

-

After a winter hiatus, Sleepy Hollow returns with one of its most complete episodes of its first season. “Vessel” takes all of the elements which make Sleepy Hollow a good show and blends them almost perfectly. From superficial elements like Ichabod’s (Tom Mison) reactions to modern clothes and wacky, alternate takes on early American history to more serious things like fleshing out Frank’s (Orlando Jones) relationship with his family and Moloch’s larger plot. This episode also features some scenes of visceral horror and a plot that kicks into gear ten minutes into the episode and doesn’t hit the brakes until the denouement. Goffman and McMillan weld this episode’s story to Sleepy Hollow‘s overall arc while Melissa Blake »

'Sleepy Hollow': Tom Mison and Orlando Jones tease the spooky 'Vessel'

13 January 2014 2:04 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

After a month hiatus, Sleepy Hollow returns Monday night (Fox, 9 p.m. Et) with an episode that star Tom Mison promises will be a scary one. “It’s a constantly tense one,” he says. “I like that the show does simmer, and then there are a few moments that jump out at you.” The hour explores more of Jenny Mills’ (Lyndie Greenwood) past, Mison teases, “and the fact that she was once possessed — who wasn’t.” As the clip below reveals, Sheriff Corbin (Clancy Brown) helped Jenny through the possession, which had an effect on her relationship with her sister, »

'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: Loads of Demonic Possessions

13 January 2014 12:22 PM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

On this week's episode of Sleepy Hollow, a new demon endangers Irving's family. Abbie and Ichabod learn there is a link between this latest threat and Jenny. And another secret is uncovered within Washington's Bible.

After a long vacay, hopefully Abbie and Ichabod -- the dashing male protagonist desperately needs a nickname, and Icky just does not work -- are well rested. Abbie's soul is in danger, and this comes from a very reliable source: Moloch himself. The previous episode also foreshadowed, by a possessed hot chocolate vendor, that something wicked is coming for Irving's daughter, Macy (Amandla Stenberg). This news came in the midst of the police captain's realization that fighting demons is likely to shorten the life spans of all the good guys, including himself. »

Craig Robinson comedy revived at NBC with 6-episode order

6 January 2014 3:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

After passing over a comedy pilot from Craig Robinson last spring, NBC has changed its mind and given the show a six-episode order.

"Mr. Robinson" stars "The Office" alum Robinson as a musician who gets a job teaching at a middle school, where he chafes under the school's rules. As seen on "The Office" and occasionally in his stand-up comedy, Robinson has some musical chops himself.

The pickup comes with some changes behind the scenes. Robb and Mark Cullen, coming off ABC's canceled "Back in the Game," are joining the series as executive producers and showrunners, while "Office" Ep Greg Daniels has left the project. (Another "Office" veteran, Owen Ellickson, wrote the pilot script.)

Robinson and the Cullens previously worked together on "Lucky," an FX comedy that ran for one season in 2003.

The rest of the "Mr. Robinson" cast -- Jean Smart, Larenz Tate, Amanda Lund, Amandla Stenberg and Steve Little »

NBC Orders Craig Robinson Comedy Pilot To 6-Episode Series (Amandla Stenberg, Larenz Tate Co-star)

6 January 2014 3:17 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last May, when NBC released its official 2013/2014 schedule lineup, it looked like Craig Robinson's comedy series, from creators of The Office, was dead, because it wasn't on the list. Skip ahead to July, to news that the series actually could see the light of day, as NBC had reportedly ordered 3 additional scripts for the untitled series, and extended its options on the entire cast, which includes Amandla Stenberg and Larenz Tate.  Skip ahead, finally, to today, to news that NBC has taking another leap forward, and ordered 6 episodes of the series, which is now titled Mr. Robinson. First announced as a possibility in the fall of 2012, NBC gave a pilot order to a new comedy series from The Office executive producer Greg Daniels, penned by Owen Ellickson (supervising producer for The Office), and starring funnyman/actor Craig Robinson. The project was to follow a talented musician (played by...
