Charlize Theron Skillfully Dance Battles With Jimmy Fallon

1 hour ago

Charlize Theron and Jimmy Fallon took turns making up dance moves for a round of The Tonight Show's Dance Battle. In honor of Theron's new movie Atomic Blonde, all of the songs were from the '80s and the film's soundtrack.

Theron went first and was prompted with "slap the giraffe," which she looked at dubiously. "That's not a mistake, that's actually what you meant to write?" she asked, laughing. Nevertheless, she went out on stage and slapped an imaginary giraffe, inspiring Fallon to jealously ask, "How do you make that look cool?" 

Fallon patted his pockets to a beat for »

Harry Styles Gives 'Dunkirk' More Than It Bargained For

1 hour ago

An ambitious director who avoids email, cellphones and social media. A pop star with 30 million Twitter followers and legions of online fans. It might not sound like a natural fit, but One Direction star Harry Styles has emerged as a secret weapon for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk.

It's not just that Styles’ performance as a young British soldier is strong (it is). It's also that for months, Styles' fans have been mounting an impromptu publicity campaign for Dunkirk, Nolan’s World War II film that’s earned rave reviews and opens this weekend.

At Tuesday's premiere in New York, Styles-mania »

1 hour ago

2017 was a year of firsts for director-producer Shawn Levy — from his first Oscar nomination for Arrival to a first Emmy nom for Netflix's Stranger Things. Levy will soon embark on another (and arguably his biggest) first... his first San Diego Comic-Con. Levy talked to The Hollywood Reporter about what he's expecting from Hall H ahead of Saturday's Stranger Things panel.

I have been told to hydrate and sleep when you can. But, I think, the worst peril that we are gonna face is getting sick of the sound of our own voices.

Comic-Con is the epicenter of passionate fandom and I think it’s »

'Who the F**k is That Guy? The Fabulous Journey of Michael Alago': Film Review

2 hours ago

Representing a growing microgenre of "they knew everybody!" documentary portraits (think of the recent Danny Says), Drew Stone's Who the F**ck is That Guy shows how total, unabashed music fandom took a nobody from New York City's far reaches to the heart of the music business. Starting off as just a kid who attended every live show he could manage, Michael Alago soon become a tastemaker who (among other things) helped introduce the world to Metallica. Despite its very modest production values and narrow scope, this friendly doc is one more small chapter in the ongoing oral history of Downtown »

7 hours ago

As the five-star reviews for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk continue to roll in from around the world, the early Oscar buzz is already gathering steam. 

But while many agree that Nolan is deserved of a nod in the best director category (his first) and there are likely to be numerous honors for cinematography and other behind-the-camera work, among the ensemble cast, while praised, only Mark Rylance has been tipped as a possible contender for best supporting actor.

'Old Sitting' ('Sales gosses'): Film Review

9 hours ago

Each summer a French comedy comes along that tries to to exploit its country’s sacrosanct vacation rituals, whether in the form of trailer park trash (the Camping series), nostalgia for the golden years (Nicholas on Holiday, Ducoboo 2: Crazy Vacation), camp chaos (Those Happy Days, from the makers of Intouchable), ripoffs of The Love Boat (La Croisiere) or good ol’ fashioned sexism (One Wild Moment).

In the best case you get something like Jacques Tati’s Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday, but in most cases you get much of the above or else the latest specimen, Old Sitting (Sales gosses) — an awful »
