Cougars, Gray Panthers, Silver Foxes: It's a Jungle Out There

3 June 2012 3:58 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Cougars to the left! Cougars to the right! Older women with a strong sense of who they are and what they want and who make no bones about it have never been more visible. But how do you feel about the sobriquet they've quickly earned? It certainly grates on my ear and has driven a curiosity to see how this shift is playing both in the media and in real life, perhaps an increasingly meaningless distinction, I'll admit. Movies have a mixed record on these issues, as we addressed in my earlier post. But it's TV »

3 June 2012 3:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jason Alexander has issued an apology for comments he made during an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on May 25. The Seinfeld actor was talking to host Ferguson about the game of cricket, and called it a “gay game.” Photos: Hollywood's Memorable Mea Culpas “You know how I know it’s kind of really a gay game? It’s the pitch,” he said before doing an imitation of the motion. “It’s not like a manly baseball pitch. It’s a queer British gay pitch.” On June 2, Alexander issued a lengthy apology for his comments. He

Longmire: TV Review

3 June 2012 3:29 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It’s very hard to make a great Western. The last of its kind was Deadwood on HBO, which went off the air prematurely in 2006. But the good news for networks and cable channels looking to make a Western – and at one point there were at least five in development, not counting AMC’s Hell On Wheels which finished its first season and A&E’s Longmire, which airs tonight – is that viewers don’t necessarily want a great Western. They are actually a pretty easy bunch to satisfy. Photos: Summer TV Preview 2012: Until the saturation point makes everyone long for

Your Sunday Long Reads: The History of The Wire, Jonathan Lethem on the Talking Heads, and The New Yorker on Sci-Fi

3 June 2012 3:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's Sunday afternoon, or: your last chance to read all that stuff you meant to read last week before Monday brings a new deluge of things you will want to read. Below, some of our recommendations: "Maxim Interrogates the Makers and Stars of The Wire," by Marc Spitz (Maxim): An oral history of the show, as told by creator David Simon, co-executive producer and writer Ed Burns, Method Man, former HBO chairman and CEO Chris Albrecht, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Sonja Sohn, and pretty much everyone else who made it happen. "Fear of Music," by Jayson Greene (Pitchfork): A conversation with author Jonathan Lethem on his new book for the 33 1/2 series, which devotes each volume to a single album. As the title suggests, Letham chose the Talking Heads' 1979 release, which "swept over the 15-year-old like a UFO passing over a cornfield." The Science Fiction Issue (The New »

News Nuggets: Ways the MTV Movie Awards improve on the Oscars

3 June 2012 2:28 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Ways the MTV Movie Awards improve on the Oscars: "While the Oscars are great at recognizing movies that have certain admirable qualities – distinctive and energetic acting, say, or beautifully stylized dialogue – they have never been nearly as good at recognizing the value of the entertainment side of moviegoing. They have been reticent to acknowledge on an institutional level that people go to the movies, much of the time, to experience something exhilarating. They go to laugh, to weep and swoon, to look at beautiful places, to be scared and excited and surprised. They don't always go in order to see the most skilled artists at work. Sometimes they just want to be made to react." NPR "Homeland" hoping to bring an Emmy breakthrough to Showtime: "... if the show were to win the Emmy for best dramatic series, it would be the first ever drama or comedy series win for Showtime, »

'Prometheus' Lands With $35M at Overseas Box Office

3 June 2012 2:24 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Watch out, Snow White. "Prometheus" is coming after you. The Ridley Scott sci-fi epic from Fox banked $35 million in its debut at the overseas box office. Sony's "Men in Black 3" had the biggest overseas weekend however, rolling up $79.1 million from 91 territories, according to box office tracker Rentrak. That figure -- just a 39 percent drop from its first week total -- raises its overall foreign gross to $275.4 million and its worldwide total to $387.7 million. "Snow White and the Huntsman" was impressive, too. The Universal fantasy epic »

Snow White Handily Beats Abysmal Expectations

3 June 2012 1:39 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After girding itself for a catastrophic $40 million-or-less opening weekend (at least according to an internal Universal memo Vulture peeked at), Snow White and the Huntsman zoomed past all expectations with a $56 million opener. "There’s a palpable sense of relief around Universal Pictures and even Hollywood," Nikki Finke reports on Deadline, "now that the Charlize Theron-Kristen Stewart-Chris Hemsworth starrer directed by first-timer Rupert Sanders and produced by Joe Roth is showing promise at the domestic box office." Snow White even surpassed, in three days, Battleship's three-week total. As for the other box office blockbusters, Men in Black 3 and The Avengers, they've peaked — both are down by more than 50 percent since last weekend. »

True or False? Angelina Jolie Approached to Direct 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

3 June 2012 1:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A fun rumor went around Hollywood this past weekend: Angelina Jolie, people were saying, had been approached to direct the movie version of the steamy romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey. THR checked out the chatter last weekend and sources said there may have been an informal conversation but that nothing was real, and reps for the actress-turned-filmmaker say there haven't been any talks with studio Focus Features (Focus also denied the rumor). Still, bloggers are now starting to catch wind of the rumor and of course, in Hollywood, there's always the possibility that Jolie will come aboard.

Chris Messina on challenges of playing vet turned whistleblower in 'Damages' [Video]

3 June 2012 12:57 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"In 'Six Feet Under' I was cast as a Republican lawyer, and then Woody Allen cast me as a Republican [in 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'] … so when I went to meet with those guys I was very adamant about not being a lawyer on their show or a Republican," says Chris Messina referring to his first casting call for "Damages." He got his wish. Instead of a Republican lawyer, he plays Chris Sanchez, a traumatized soldier who becomes a whistle-blower against a powerful private defense contractor. He's a contender for Best Drama Guest Actor at the Emmys. Messina's character suffers from post-traumatic stress following an assignment in Afghanistan. To prepare for his scenes, he says, he would "stay awake and not sleep, and then I'd go to work and right before action … I would drink two Red Bulls … I didn't have to act jittery – I was jittery and tired and kind of confused and emotional. »

New York (AP) — Richard Dawson, the wisecracking British entertainer who was among the schemers in the 1960s sitcom "Hogan's Heroes" and a decade later began kissing thousands of female contestants as host of the game show "Family Feud" has died. He was 79. Dawson, also known to TV fans as the Cockney Pow Cpl. Peter Newkirk on "Hogan's Heroes," died Saturday night from complications related to esophageal cancer at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, his son Gary said.

Foreign Box Office: 'Men in Black 3' Stays No. 1 Overseas With $275 Million-Plus

3 June 2012 12:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Taking the No. 1 box office spot overseas for the second consecutive weekend, Sony’s Men In Black III bagged $79.1 million on the foreign theatrical circuit – down a mild-mannered 38.9% from its opening offshore round – from 19,992 venues in 90 markets, lifting its foreign gross total to $275.4 million. Finishing No. 1 in 20 territories, director Barry Sonnenfeld’s special effects extravaganza in 3D costarring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin showed real staying power across many key markets, with China down just 29% with a $15.5-million take from 5,

Box Office: 'Snow White and the Huntsman' pulls off a wicked $56.3 million weekend

3 June 2012 12:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles (AP) — "Snow White & the Huntsman" turned out to be a fairer box-office beauty than Hollywood anticipated. According to studio estimates Sunday, Universal Pictures' action yarn inspired by the fairy-tale princess debuted strongly at No. 1 with $56.3 million domestically. That's about $20 million higher than industry expectations. Without the built-in business that generally goes with a sequel, "Snow White" was a question mark as a draw for young males who typically make up most of the action crowd. The movie wound up drawing a fairly even audience, with female fans accounting for 53 percent of viewers. "We »

With tonight's MTV Movie Awards on the way, a look back at 1992 and the first annual

3 June 2012 12:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So the MTV Movie Awards are tonight. I don't think I've said or typed that phrase in years because really, who cares? I think there was a time (back when MTV wouldn't attempt to diminish or stifle its 30th anniversary, lest it appear too "old" to the young demographic it chases) when these awards had a slightly transgressive place in the world. But that time came and went, likely faster than I remember. I'm talking about a time when films like "Menace II Society" and "Se7en" could win awards for Best Movie and still seem to be a vote from the »

'Game of Thrones': Richard Madden on Robb's Problems With Leadership, Missing Jon Snow

3 June 2012 12:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

With Game of Thrones' second season barreling to a conclusion with Sunday night's finale, one of the series' biggest power players seems more out of the game than ever. Robb Stark (Richard Madden), King in the North, and his army saw none of the action during the Battle of the Blackwater; he's separated from nearly his entire family and, when circumstances might be at their most dire, he's emotionally preoccupied with healer Talisa Maegyr (Oona Chaplin). As Madden sees it, mommy issues are partially to blame. Photos: 'Game of Thrones' Season 2 "I think that he sees this other woman

'Snow White' Takes Big Bite Out of Box Office Apple

3 June 2012 11:59 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Any worry that Snow White and the Huntsman would only appeal to young girls wound up being completely unfounded*the revisionist fairy tale played well across all demographics, and easily claimed the top spot at the box office this weekend. Mib 3 and The Avengers did fine business in second and third, while Mexican historical drama For Greater Glory wasn't all that great in its nationwide release. The Top 12 earned $134.6 million this weekend, which is off 12 percent from the same period last year. Snow White and the Huntsman opened at 3,773 locations and grossed a strong $56.2 million. That's the fourth-highest debut this year behind The Avengers, The Hunger Games and The Lorax, and above last weekend's Mib 3. It's also more than Universal's Battleship has made through 17 days ($55.4 million), and is close to previous Snow White movie Mirror Mirror's entire run ($62.9 million). Among other comparable titles, Snow White obviously didn't come close »

88 Things We Thought While Watching Snow White and the Huntsman

3 June 2012 11:55 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Like many of you, Vulture saw Snow White and the Huntsman over the weekend. And, while we know that it's a fairy tale and all (but dark, and "feminist," even though Snow White gets saved by men over and over again until the very end), there were so many little moments that stopped us in our tracks that we decided to give you a Spoiler Heavy stream of consciousness dispatch straight from our minds. Please feel free to offer your own addenda in the comments section below. Is that the little boy from Game of Thrones? The one that looks like Emily Mortimer? No, that's not him. But I sort of want to re-watch "Blackwater." What a great episode. That guy just killed a soldier who broke into little shards of black glass in slow motion. It's like Tron: Medieval Times. Why does the Queen scream so loudly when these »
