MPAA's R-Rating for Gay Drama ‘Love is Strange’ Draws More Accusations of Homophobia
This weekend, 13-year-olds across the nation will be able to saunter up to the box office all on their own and slap down some cash and watch women exploited, tough men murdered, and guts fly across the screen. If they want to watch a delicate, realistic story about two men in a long-term relationship, however, they'll need to ask their parents’ permission, because not even their 16-year-old siblings will be able to help them. Once again, the MPAA is coming under fire for. »

‘Sin City 2′ Misfires at Friday Box Office for Estimated $10 Million Weekend
According to early estimates, The Weinstein Co.’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” is practically dead on arrival.
Friday’s projections showed the sequel appeared heading for an opening weekend in the $10 million range at 2,894 sites — far below recent estimates of a $15 million launch — with a meager first-day gross of $3.6 million including a sparse $475,000 from Thursday night shows.
Despite TWC’s noir-drenched marketing campaign and the star power of Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” is likely headed for fifth or sixth place. It currently trails Chloe Grace Moretz’s weeper “If I Stay,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” the launch of low-budget sports drama “When the Game Stood Tall” and possibly the second weekend of “Let’s Be Cops.”
The nine-year hiatus between the original “Sin City” and the sequel appears to »

Mila Kunis Called Robin Williams a Person Who Left a Lasting Impact on Her Life: "Remember This Time," He Once Told Her
It's amazing what you can find when you go through the archives. Mila Kunis was among the lucky ones who got to work with Robin Williams over the course of his storied, Oscar-winning career and, in previously unpublished remarks from an interview she gave during that time, she was already calling him a person who had made a lasting impression on her life with just a few words. Talking to Esquire in 2012, when she was shooting The Angriest Man in Brooklyn with Williams, Kunis recounted a story about meeting him when he was filming a scene on the same lot as That '70s Show one day—and she never forgot what he told her. "And so many times you meet people they don't »
Sin City Creator Frank Miller on the Future of Comics and Collaborating With Robert Rodriguez
Comic-book iconoclast Frank Miller is his own best character. After his much-imitated, years-long run on Marvel Comics' Daredevil, he bullishly pushed the boundaries of how mainstream comics stories were told in milestone titles like The Dark Knight Returns, Ronin, and 300. His heroes are similarly self-assured beyond mere arrogance: They're above reproach, a standard that Miller maintains as a rejection of psychological realism. His comics often take place in decadent cities. But even in his Sin City comics, Miller maintains an undiminished — albeit deranged — sense of optimism and romance. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Robert Rodriguez's new "translation" of Miller's hyper-violent neo-noir comics, Josh Brolin plays a sucker that pines for Eva Green's vicious (and frequently naked) femme fatale with a little help from killer friends Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson. Vulture talked to Miller about how he stays optimistic, what the future of comics »

Translating Peter Capaldi's Permanent 'Doctor Who' Bitch Face
The time is nigh! In one day, Peter Capaldi bursts onto the scene as The Doctor in the new season of BBC's "Doctor Who." Playing the 12th incarnation (or 13th or 14th depending on your math), Capaldi has promised his Doctor will be darker. And he's going to prove it by giving laser-eyed hate vision to every camera within a 500 yard radius. But what does each glare really mean? #1 - Capaldi Annoyance Meter: 8 He is clearly done with this photoshoot. His gaze pierces into the soul of the photographer, who collapses into a puddle of tears. They're sorry. So, so sorry. But they have to take just one or two more photos. Photo Credit: BBC Translation: 2 - Capaldi Annoyance Meter: 4 It is far too bright outside to be a proper London day. Capaldi is clearly annoyed by this unseasonable post-production cheeriness. Just let it be gloomy! Photo Credit: BBC Translation: »

‘Chappelle's Show’ Co-Creator on Fergusgon: I'd Pay to Get Cops to Wear Cameras
“Chappelle's Show” co-creator Neal Brennan says he'd be willing to kick in to have police officers wear cameras to make sure they don't shoot people without cause. The subject came up during Brennan's latest “Champs” podcast with fellow comedian Moshe Kasher and guest Seaton Smith, one of the stars of Fox's “Mulaney.” Also read: ‘Approval Matrix’ Host Neal Brennan on Twitter Scolds, Reparations and the W-Word One of the proposals to emerge from the Ferguson, Mo. protests over the police shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown was one to outfit all police officers with small cameras that could monitor their interactions. »

Will Emmy-Winner 'Cosmos' Be Back?
The non-fiction series Emmy nominations leader, Fox and Nat Geo’s reboot of "Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey," landed 12 nominations including short-format non-fiction program, documentary or non-fiction series, and both writing and directing for non-fiction programming. Already winning an Emmy at last week's Creative Arts Emmy Awards Show is the show's creator, writer and executive producer Ann Druyan, the widow of Carl Sagan, who reimagined their classic 1980 television show "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage." It was no easy feat bringing the science series back in a way that was accessibly entertaining to general audiences as well as accurately informative: she credits executive producer Seth MacFarlane for helping her to make that journey. With his support, New York-born Druyan managed over many years to mount the thirteen-part television series for Fox and National Geographic networks, which premiered stateside on March 9, 2014 with an intro from President Barack »

Eva Green on Her Sin City Nude Scenes and Acting ‘200 Percent Evil’
"You cannot defeat the Goddess," says one character in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. "She cannot die." He's referring to Ava Lord, the seductive black widow who gives the film its title, and when she's played by Eva Green, who can blame him for using heavenly superlatives? There's always been something otherworldly about Green, who first impressed (and undressed) in Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers, won best Bond Girl ever honors with Casino Royale, and just this year starred as the formidable Artemesia in 300: Rise of an Empire and toplined the Showtime series Penny Dreadful. A few weeks ago in Los Angeles, the slinky Green met up with Vulture at The Four Seasons to tell us how she got into character for the Robert Rodriguez–directed Sin City, and how she felt about getting out of her clothes for it.Do you consider yourself an inhibited person »

Feeling Nostalgic? Beyoncé Shares Flashback Photo From Her 21st Birthday, Rocks White Hot Pants and Matching Bra Top
Looks like Beyoncé was feeling a little nostalgic today. The 32-year-old beauty took to Instagram on Friday to share a flashback photo of herself from her 21st birthday celebration. In the pic, the "Flawless" singer sports a pair of frilly white hot pants and a matching bra top while letting her natural curls run wild and accessorizing with a giant pair of hoop earrings. "Flashback. My 21st birthday invitation. 80's Skate party in Atl. Good times," Queen Bey captioned the shot, which she cleverly pic-framed in order to give fans a double dose of young Yonce. The photo was taken the same year the Destiny's Child singer released her debut solo »

Internet, your prayers have been answered: As announced Friday on Twitter by Marvel Entertainment’s Ryan Penagos, Funko Toys will be releasing an official toy of Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dancing Groot later this year.

Rose McGowan Chops Off Her Hair, Says She Looks Like "Hitler's Stoned Cousin"
Leave it to Rose McGowan to make a simple haircut post something controversial. The 40-year-old actress posted a picture of her new, close-cropped haircut on her Instagram account Friday. But instead of something innocuous like, "Going short! Like it?" she captioned her photo: "I look like Hitler's stoned cousin #newhair #notstoned #hitlersucked." Now that she's brought it up, maybe her dark, slicked-to-the-side hairstyle vaguely calls to mind the dictator's haircut. And her eyes do look pretty dilated. But instead of Hitler, we've come up with a list of non-dictators who look a whole lot like Rose McGowan with short hair. 1. Charlie Chaplin without a »
‘The Simpsons’ Marathon More Than Triples Primetime Audience for Fxx
Fxx scored solid ratings in primetime Thursday with its “The Simpsons” marathon, more than tripling the network’s usual audience.
According to Nielsen estimates, the six half-hours of “The Simpsons” averaged a 0.49 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.01 million viewers overall. The demo score was good enough for an eighth-place primetime finish for Fxx — ahead of parent network FX as well as cable biggies including TNT and USA.
Last week in primetime, Fxx averaged a 0.13 rating in adults 18-49 (165,000 in that age group) and 304,000 viewers overall. Also by way of comparison, the most recent original of the net’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” averaged a 0.35 rating in the demo and 535,000 total viewers.
All 552 “Simpsons” episodes will be airing in chronological order on Fxx, which started the marathon earlier Thursday with the pilot episode from December 1989.
In primetime on Thursday, the top-rated “Simpsons” aired at 8:30 p.m., “Itchy & Scratchy & Marge, »

At Midnight, James Franco Called Us to Talk About Porn
James Franco should be sleepy. It's after midnight, and he's just wrapped a long shoot on the indie Michael, where he stars as an ex-gay activist struggling with his sexuality. Most actors would spend their twilight hours heading to bed or studying the next day's script pages, but the idea of rest is almost anathema to a compulsive multitasker like Franco, who's instead taken that free time to call up Vulture to discuss pornography — specifically, the sadomasochistic kind.Franco's latest project, Kink, is steeped in the subject: Directed by Christina Voros, a cinematographer who's shot many of Franco's low-budget indies, the movie is a behind-the-scenes look at Kink.com, a porn website that specializes in rough trade. In front of the camera, performers are flogged, punched, and humiliated, but Voros's camera captures the easygoing creative meetings where those scenes are concocted and the mundane reality of the directors negotiating with »

‘Redskins’ Banned by Washington Post Editorial Page
The Washington Post's editorial page has deleted the Washington Redskins from its word bank. Since 1992, the page has insisted the nickname of its nearby NFL team was offensive to Americans of every ethnicity. On Friday, it took a stand. Also listen: Kevin Hart Tussles With CNN's Don Lemon Over ‘Redskins’ Controversy: ‘Don't Compare It to the N-Word’ “Every time the R-word is used, something disrespectful is happening,” the editorial board wrote in its statement. “We hope Mr. (Dan) Snyder and the NFL will acknowledge that truth sooner rather than later.
