Zoey Deutch promises some 'good ol' TV incest' on 'Switched at Birth'

17 February 2013 2:52 PM, PST

This week, Zoey Deutch begins a brief arc on ABC Family's "Switched at Birth."   While it's a nice get for the acclaimed family drama to land one of the co-stars of "Beautiful Creatures" and The CW's "Ringer" for a multi-episode run, Deutch's appearance is really a not-quite-family reunion.   See, Deutch's mother, Lea Thompson, is one of the stars of "Switched at Birth," but the two apparently don't share any scenes together.   Find out what makes the role "good ol' TV incest" in this brief clip from HitFix's Dan Fienberg's interview with Deutch (and "Beautiful Creatures" co-star Thomas Mann).  »

Watch: Feast your delicious eyes on the first trailer for NBC's 'Hannibal'

17 February 2013 2:30 PM, PST

Dr. Lecter on network television? Yeah, it's happening. NBC has released the first promo for "Hannibal," a sure-to-be-grisly new series featuring Mads Mikkelsen as the infamous serial killer and Hugh Dancy as an FBI profiler tasked with picking his sociopathic brain (so to speak). Also starring in the Bryan Fuller-scripted show, which was ordered straight to series by the network last February, are Caroline Dhavernas, Lara Jean Chorostecki and Laurence Fisbhurne, who will recur as Jack Crawford, the head of the FBI's Behavioral Sciences division. So can Mikkelsen live up to Anthony Hopkins' iconic portrayal of the villain? We'll see when »

17 February 2013 1:45 PM, PST

Kevin Hart has officially hit the big time. The stand-up comedian, whose mainstream star has been on the rise recently thanks to a role in the sleeper 2012 comedy "Think Like a Man" and his successful 2011 concert film "Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain," has been tapped to host the March 2 episode of the late-night sketch series for the first time, as announced on last night's Christoph Waltz-fronted episode. The episode's musical guests will be hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, whose "Thrift Shop" currently sits atop the Billboard Hot 100. Hart currently stars on the Bet parody series »

17 February 2013 12:29 PM, PST

Los Angeles (AP) — Bruce Willis remains a die-hard at the box office. Willis' action sequel "A Good Day to Die Hard" debuted as the weekend's top draw with a $25 million debut from Friday to Sunday. The 20th Century Fox release raised its domestic total to $33.2 million since opening Thursday for Valentine's Day to get a jump on the long President's Day weekend.

Tech Support: Seamus McGarvey on shooting 'Anna Karenina' objectively and subjectively

17 February 2013 8:41 AM, PST

Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey has worked with Joe Wright since a 25-year old Wright made the 1998 short film “The End.” Since then the British filmmaker has become one of his generation’s most notable directors and McGarvey has been along for the ride every step of the way. In 2007, McGarvey earned an Oscar nomination for lensing “Atonement," which led to higher profile features such as last year’s “The Avengers.” It was only near the end of shooting “The Avengers” that Wright asked McGarvey to join him on “Anna Karenina.” And is McGarvey ever glad he did, with the journey culminating in »

Christoph Waltz is Jesus H. Christ in 'SNL' spoof 'Djesus Uncrossed'

17 February 2013 12:39 AM, PST

The race for best supporting actor is still up in the air, but one nominee was doing his best Saturday night to demonstrate his versatility to moviegoers and any academy members up past their bed timees watching "SNL." "Django Unchained's" Christoph Waltz was pretty fantastic in his inaugural hosting gig and one of the show's most memorable bits found Waltz spoofing his two most memorable movies to date, "Django" and his Oscar-winning "Inglourious Basterds."  The skit, which was shot in pseduo Tarantino style, has Waltz playing none other than Jesus H. Christ (the H is silent) in - you guessed it - "Jesus »

16 February 2013 10:15 PM, PST

Tom Hooper's musical adaptation "Les Misérables" picked up its first industry award win of the season (save the SAG prize to Anne Hathaway) tonight.

Production mixer Simon Hayes, re-recording mixers Andy Nelson and Mark Peterson, scoring mixer Jonathan Allen, Adr mixer Robert Edwards and foley mixer Pete Smith all shared in the prize, though it's just Hayes, Nelson and Paterson who are included in the film's Oscar nomination for Best Sound Mixing.

Music Power Rankings: Mumford & Sons, Adele and Justin Timberlake top the list

16 February 2013 10:00 PM, PST

1. Mumford & Sons: The British quartet accomplishes something the likes of  Bruce Springsteen, the Beach Boys and R.E.M. have never done by winning the Grammy for album of the year. In doing so, “Babel” towers over all over albums next week on the Billboard 200. 2. Adele: She doesn’t even have to put out new music to win a Grammy... or any award. We just want her to promise she’ll attend and give a hilariously candid acceptance speech. 3. Justin Timberlake: After a six year absence, he and Jay-z will tour stadiums this summer. That’s a lot of sexy. 4. »

'Argo,' 'Silver Linings,' 'Brave' and 'Breaking Bad' win Ace Eddie Awards

16 February 2013 9:55 PM, PST

It's been reiterated for months now that "Argo" and "Silver Linings Playbook" are the two films that are well-liked across the board in the Academy and the industry at large. Well, tonight, both films have triumphed at the America Cinema Editors's Ace Eddie Awards in the dramatic and comedic categories. Neither is really a shock. "Argo" is the frontrunner to win the Oscar for editing and Best Picture, while "Silver Linings Playbook" surprised many by landing an Oscar nomination for editing. It beat out "Les Misérables" here, which wasn't nominated for an Oscar and was probably the only competition otherwise. These »

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Christoph Waltz and Alabama Shakes

16 February 2013 8:00 PM, PST

Let’s face it, “Saturday Night Live” fans: 2013 hasn’t been kind to the show. We’ve had three not-really-that-good-at-all shows thus far, with the pieces never really coming together to produce a solid, nevermind stand-out, episode. Will Christoph Waltz be the unlikely savior? I say “unlikely” not because he isn’t talented, but because I’m sure there are a lot of people tuning in tonight. Those reading this recap will probably know of his recent roles in “Inglorious Basterds” and “Django Unchained”, but the average viewer more familiar with the oeuvre of last week’s host Justin Bieber? Hard to say.   Then again, »

'Beautiful Creatures' director Richard Lagravenese talks male protagonists, magic and sequels

16 February 2013 6:02 PM, PST

An Oscar nominee for writing "The Fisher King," Richard Lagravenese has cultivated an ongoing reputation as a go-to source for cultivated adaptations of that the uncultivated might call "chick-lit," ranging from "The Horse Whisperer" to "The Bridges of Madison County" to "Water for Elephants." [We would never put Lagravenese in a "chick lit" corner, since "Beloved" and "The Little Princess" are clearly much more than that.]   With the new teen supernatural romance "Beautiful Creatures," Lagravenese is working with material which might -- again, this would only be a gross generalization -- be thought to skew more toward female viewers, but »

Ang Lee's remarkable journey with 'Life of Pi' is coming ashore Oscar Sunday

16 February 2013 2:00 PM, PST

When Ang Lee first read Yann Martel' "Life of Pi" he didn't think it was a movie let alone a global blockbuster.  Speaking to the Oscar-winning director of such classics as "The Ice Storm," "Brokeback Mountain" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" back in November 2012 before "Pi" hit theaters Lee was, as always, incredibly honest about his creative process. "I didn't think it was a movie," Lee said.  "I introduced it to my wife, my kids.  We talked about it.  It was a very inspiring book, fantastical and mind boggling.  I don't think it's movie material.  It's too expensive to be »

Movie Power Rankings: New rumors push 'Star Wars' back to the top

16 February 2013 11:03 AM, PST

Believe it or not, the "Star Wars" hype machine is just getting warmed up. The latest wave of rumors, teases and promotion is just the beginning of what you'll be hearing about the series over the next few years. Much of the latest buzz surrounds the fact that Disney seems intent on not just creating a new trilogy -- starting with the J.J. Abrams-directed "Episode VII" -- but also expanding the franchise to include stand alone films. Can fans really expect spin-off movies focusing on such beloved Ot characters as Han Solo and Boba Fett? It would appear so. They won't »

Romania's 'Child's Pose' takes Golden Bear at Berlin, David Gordon Green gets Best Director

16 February 2013 10:57 AM, PST

The Berlin Film Festival awards ceremony is about to get under way, and your guess is as good as mine about what films will take the gold from Wong Kar-wai's jury -- "Gloria" remains the critics' favorite, but I can easily see Bruno Dumont, Danis Tanovic, Ulrich Seidl, or one of the many Competition films I didn't get around to catching, beat it to the Golden Bear. I'll be posting the winners as they're announced after the jump.  Competition Awards Golden Bear: "Child's Pose," Calin Peter Netzer Grand Jury Prize: "An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker," Danis Tanovic »

Box office: 'Die Hard' and 'Safe Haven' neck and neck on Friday

16 February 2013 10:29 AM, PST

It was the battle of the Valentine's Day releases Friday night at the box office, where "A Good Day to Die Hard" and "Safe Haven" were virtually tied.  Bruce Willis' latest "Die Hard" adventure pulled in about $7.2 million, while the romantic drama, which stars Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel, earned $7.1 million. Both films opened on Thursday night in order to draw the date crowd. With the added holiday of President's Day on Monday, both films are looking to crack the $30 million mark for the five-day frame.  Meanwhile, holdover "Identity Thief" earned another $6.5 million (bringing its total to $53.7 million), »

Tech Support: Thomas Newman on 'Skyfall' and the everyday challenges of a film composer

16 February 2013 9:05 AM, PST

Film music composer Thomas Newman landed his 11th Oscar nomination to date last month, for his original contributions to "Skyfall." It's the latest in a long line of Academy mentions both in the song and score categories for two decades for him, but despite the strong showing, he has yet to wrangle one of the trophies for himself. Last weekend he won his second BAFTA Award to date (on just three nominations from the group throughout his career). And, along with "Skyfall" colleague Roger Deakins, he is putting a little bit of pressure on the presumed frontrunners in his category. A »
