13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Keith Richards: Under the Influence,” Morgan Neville’s documentary that promises to give an unprecedented look into the sounds and influences of the Rolling Stones legend, will have its worldwide premiere in September on Netflix.

Neville received an Academy Award in 2014 for the documentary on backup singers, “Twenty Feet From Stardom,” which includes mentions of the Stones’ classic “Gimme Shelter.”

Neville’s credits also include documentaries on Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash and Ray Charles, but, he said, “if there’s a Mount Rushmore of Rock ’n’ Roll, Keith’s face is surely on it. He has always represented the soul of »

Batman v Superman Will Include This Important Side Villain

14 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Batman v Superman panel at San Diego Comic-Con, as well as the subsequent trailers, cleared up a lot of the mystery surrounding DC's big-screen hero clash. But one of the few remaining questions that has plagued fans surrounds the identity of Lex Luthor's spectacled associate. We all had our guesses, but Warner Bros. and DC have officially acknowledged the character, and she's someone fans of the canon will recognize.  We see her walking the halls of Lexcorp, we see her leading the cold corpse of General Zod (Michael Shannon), and now we have a name: Mercy Graves. The latest installment of DC All Access was a trailer breakdown of the Batman v Superman Comic-Con trailer. Setting aside for a moment the fact that DC is now following in the footsteps of the movie blogosphere, the video included around the 2:20 mark the identity of actress Tao Okamoto. »

Ted Sarandos Defends Adam Sandler-Netflix Deal in Wake of ‘Pixels’ Bow

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos defended the wisdom of his decision to sign Adam Sandler to a multi-picture deal despite the weak domestic box office return of his latest theatrical release, “Pixels.”

Sarandos cited the international strength of the Sony release as a good fit for Netflix’s increasingly international audience in a Q&A session with reporters Tuesday morning at the opening of the Television Critics Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

“We did our deal with Adam Sandler because he is an enormous international movie star,” he told reporters. “We are as encouraged as ever.”

Sandler’s box office clout came into question again after a weak opening weekend in which “Pixels” collected $24 million in the U.S. and slightly more than that in overseas markets. Marvel’s “Ant-Man” topped “Pixels” to lead the box office.

Nevertheless, Sarandos characterized himself as “thrilled” with »

14 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The next Christopher Nolan film has been announced - but it's very different from the blockbusters we're used to seeing from him.

Nolan, who has directed movies such as Interstellar and The Dark Knight Rises, will next release a short film about two stop-motion animators.

Titled Quay, the documentary centres on Stephen and Timothy Quay, as viewers will get an insight into the "inner workings of the brothers' studio".

It will be shown alongside three films the Quays worked on - In Absentia (2000), The Comb (1991) and Street of Crocodiles (1986) - at the Film Forum in New York City on August 19.

Following the screening, Nolan and the Quay brothers will participate in a Q&A session.

Nolan's previous works also include Inception, The Prestige and Memento.

Netflix Boss Teases Olsen Twins Return to ‘Fuller House’

12 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite previous reports, there’s still hope for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s involvement in Netflix’s “Fuller House.”

“The Olsen twins are teetering whether or not they’ll be around,” Netflix boss Ted Sarandos said Tuesday morning at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The twin sisters rose to fame playing Michelle Tanner on the family-favorite ’80s and ’90s sitcom.

Prior to TCA, the duo’s involvement in the revival series was shut down with their rep telling Variety they are focused on their current careers, which includes overseeing their fashion labels.

Also at the time, “Fuller House” exec producer Robert L. Boyett said, “Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of ‘Fuller House,’ I know how much ‘Full House’ has meant to them, and they are still very much considered family. It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, »

Watch the Explosive, Robot-less Trailer for Michael Bay's Fiery Benghazi Project, 13 Hours

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In an alternate dimension with no Pam, Jim Halpert and Roy Anderson have grown epic beards and decided that nobody should mess with them. (Actually, there are a lot of beards in here. How many can you count?) That's kind of how this trailer goes — plus some cryptic teasers ("When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right") and the wonderfully explosive montages of Michael Bay doing his thing sans robots. The film, based on Mitchell Zuckoff's Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, is already generating politically charged articles, as well as comparisons to American Sniper (wow, that was fast!). Timing-wise, it makes sense: The film is slated for the same release window as Sniper, and it'll come as a Benghazi reminder right as the 2016 election kicks into gear. As with the book, Bay's 13 Hours will retell the true story »

Watch: TV Anchors Tell Off Cara Delevingne in Awkward Interview

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A few TV anchors were not happy with Cara Delevingne, and it made for one cringe-worthy interview.

The model and actress appeared on “Good Day Sacramento” to promote her film “Paper Towns,” and the interview grew tense as she seemed less-than-enthusiastic and the anchors called her out for it.

One of the anchors starts the interview by calling Delevingne “Carla,” and it’s all downhill from there. Her co-host then asks the actress if juggling several projects helps her focus.

“No,” she answered. “I don’t know where that comes from.”

Delevingne gave several sarcastic responses to the questions. When asked if she relates to her “Paper Towns” character, Margo, she jokingly replied, “No, I actually hate her.”

One of the co-hosts asked Delevingne if she was “just exhausted,” and she explained that the John Green movie had just had its premiere the night before, and that it was an emotional evening. »

'Banshee' ending with season 4 because 'we were done telling the story'

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The upcoming fourth season of "Banshee" will be the last for the kick-ass Cinemax action drama. But it's ending on its own creative terms, and not because Cinemax wanted it to. Though some early reports on the decision have used the term "canceled," a source close to "Banshee" production insists that everyone went into making season 4 knowing that the story of fake sheriff Lucas Hood would be coming to a close with it. According to this source, "We have not been canceled, but on the creative side, we have decided to end the show, basically because we were done telling the story. As Cinemax's highest-rated show, no one was looking to cancel us. It was a creative decision. The premise was never meant to survive a long stretch. We all made the decision at the end of season 3 that we were going to make season 4 our grand finale." All shows end. »

The Real Housewives of New York City followed Carole Radziwill and Dorinda Medley to London and there was no shrieking or arguments, but there was a little crying.
