Sofía Vergara Was "Nervous" Filming Threesome in Fading Gigolo, Got Pointers From Co-Star Sharon Stone

3 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What makes Sofía Vergara nervous? Well, threesomes is one thing. The beautiful Colombian actress opened up about her big sex scene with co-stars Sharon Stone and John Tuturro in the upcoming film Fading Gigolo, and couldn't help but admit that it made her a little anxious (who could ever imagine why?!). "At the beginning, I was a little nervous because...I've never done anything like this, not in real life or on camera," Vergara reportedly revealed. "So it was a little nerve-wracking." Luckily, she had some help from Stone, who is no stranger to doing racy flicks (like Basic Instinct, for example). "When I arrived on the set, Sharon was very supportive," Vergara »

Review: 'The Americans' - 'New Car'

3 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as I sell one of my kids... Earlier today, FX announced that "The Americans" had been renewed for a third season, an enormous relief given the great disparity between the show's quality and its live ratings. (Though, as noted in that story, half the audience watches on a DVR delay, a huge percentage for any show even in 2014.) The sense of elation I felt at knowing this great show will be around a while longer (and hopefully live up to the "on our schedule for five years or more" vow of FX's straight-shooting PR chief) comes in a nice contrast to "New Car," an episode whose prevailing emotions are despair and frustration that other people don't believe as deeply as you in the things that you think matter, and that even when they do, belief alone can't prevent great tragedy. »

‘X-Men’ Director Bryan Singer Accused of Sexually Abusing Teenage Boy

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

X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer  has been accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy in 1999 in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Hawaii federal court.

The plaintiff, Michael Egan, claims he was 17 when Singer forcibly sodomized him, among other allegations. Egan’s lawyers, led by Jeff Herman, allege that Singer provided him with drugs and alcohol and flew him to Hawaii on more than one occasion in 1999. His suit claims battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion, and it seeks unspecified damages.

Singer’s attorney, Marty Singer, called the lawsuit “absurd and defamatory.”

“The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit,” the attorney said. “We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated.”

Marc Collins-Rector, the former chairman of Digital Entertainment Network, an ambitious Internet startup that sputtered in the dotcom bust of 2000, is also cited in the Singer lawsuit, »

Is New Line planning to change the title of the final 'Hobbit' film?

4 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are fan sites, and then there are fan sites. The One Ring has been around long enough that they have earned their spot atop the mountain as the end-all be-all source for news on all things involving the cinematic interpretations of the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. When they call a source reliable, they've been doing this long enough to know what that means, and they wouldn't publish a random rumor unless they were fairly sure there is truth to it. So let's use that as a jumping-off point and just take it as a given that when The One Ring says that New Line is considering a title change for the final chapter of "The Hobbit," there's something to it. The original plan for bringing "The Hobbit" to the screen was to break it into two parts. The first would be called "An Unexpected Journey," and the second would be "There And Back Again. »

A Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel Is in the Works

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In news that has hit us with the force of a run-by fruiting, The Hollywood Reporter announced this evening that a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel is finally in the offing. The reboot would see Robin Williams reuniting with director Chris Columbus, with Elf scribe David Berenbaum attached to write. A sequel has been in the works for years, but only became active again early this year with Berenbaum's involvement. THR reports that "Williams and Columbus are attached and hopeful." We're hopeful too! Along with Dumb and Dumber To, this would mark the second beloved early-nineties comedy classic to get the long-awaited reboot treatment. We think we speak for everyone when we say: don't screw this up, poppets. »

Oliver Stone Spars with Chinese Film Official at Beijing Film Festival

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

Beijing – Controversial U.S. director Oliver Stone railed against the notion of international co-productions and warned Chinese filmmakers not to become “bastardized” by attempts to become global.

Stone’s remarks came while taking part in a seminar about international co-productions organized as part of the 4th Beijing International Film Festival.

“Most international co-productions are bullshit. They often don’t work. Money is the dictator,” said the “Wall Street” director. “’Iron Man’? ‘Transformers’? Is it really a Chinese experience?”

Stone said that he finds actors performing in languages other than their own to be compromised.

“Chinese actors when they try and act in English, it doesn’t have the same meaning,” he said. “Words are important. I hope you never bastardize yourselves to become American.”

Stone’s remarks later built into a slow-moving, almost surreal on-stage argument with Zhang Xun, the president of China Film Co-production Corporation, the moderator of the seminar. »

'American Idol' Recap: Demi Lovato Returns (Sort of) to Judge Top 7

4 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In an interesting twist, the remaining seven American Idol singers were given the task of choosing songs for their competition Wednesday. The “Competitors Pick” theme certainly opened up the evening for sabotage, but this bunch seems uninterested in drama, and did a nice job matching up songs for their peers. Mentor Randy Jackson said the theme was more to test the ideas of the Top 7, and some of the suggestions were really interesting. Former X Factor judge Demi Lovato stopped by to talk about her Neon Lights tour and to have a seat next to Jackson to check out

Film Review: ‘Be My Baby’

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

A sex satire so sharp it cuts to the bone, Hitoshi One’s “Be My Baby” offers an unflattering micro-portrait of Japan’s don-kyun (Dqn) tribe — lumpen twentysomethings with dead-end jobs and makeshift lovelives. Auds may need a flowchart to suss out the various liaisons and betrayals that take place among nine protags over the space of two weeks, but they’ll be hooked from the get-go by the film’s slyly observant characterizations, barbed dialogue and manipulative plot reversals. After opening at Shibuya Auditorium, a cinema located in Tokyo’s Dqn heartland, the film has generated steamy domestic buzz despite its self-indulgent 138-minute running time; cropping about 15 minutes could help its circulation in fests and Asian markets.

Veteran TV helmer One’s sophomore film couldn’t be more different from his popular debut, the glossy, studio-funded screwball comedy “Moteki” (aka “Love Strikes!”). Scripted by Daisuke Miura from his own play and novel, »

Theater Review: The James Franco Project Continues, With Of Mice and Men

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Just three months after its publication in book form in February 1937, Of Mice and Men was staged in San Francisco. This was unusual but not unauthorized: Steinbeck had deliberately written the tale, which he called “a kind of playable novel,” in dialogue that could be enacted “as it stands.” He was right: It stood then and it stands up now, as the new Broadway production starring James Franco and Chris O’Dowd as the odd-couple bindlestiffs proves. The story is narrow; unlike Steinbeck’s panoptic portraits of the misery of California laborers in works such as Tortilla Flat and In Dubious Battle, it does not engage, except by implication, the larger sociopolitical forces at play. Of Mice and Men sticks to the scale its title implies. Only two characters are fully realized: the itinerant ranch hands Lennie and George. Lennie is large, and softheaded, and of no more consequence in »

Fox Releases First Trailer for ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ (Video)

5 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Fox released the first look at its upcoming reality show, “I Wanna Marry Harry.” In case you hadn't heard about it, the series dupes 12 American women into believing they're competing to date Britain's Prince Harry. Also read: ‘Boom'! Fox's Explosive Series Sparks Internal Strife Over New Reality Chief (Exclusive) Though just a short 30-second clip, it's pretty illuminating on several levels. First, it seems unbelievable that these young women actually believe that Prince Harry would do a reality show. To give the producers some credit, they seem to go to great lengths to make it convincing. Second, Fox isn't shying away from comparisons. »

‘The Hobbit’ Knocks ‘Frozen’ Off Top of Home Video Sales Chart

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

Warner Bros.’ “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” shot to the top of both national home video sales charts for the week ended April 13, ending a three-week stay at the top for Walt Disney’s “Frozen.”

“Frozen” slipped to No. 2 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. Nielsen data shows that consumers bought about twice as many copies of the “Hobbit” sequel as they did of “Frozen” during the week, with Blu-ray fans snapping up more than three times as many copies.

Two other new releases made it into the First Alert top 10. The Weinstein Co.’s “August: Osage County,” distributed by Anchor Bay, debuted at No. 4 (No. 9, Blu-ray), a good showing for a dark comedy about strong-willed women that only made $37.7 million in theaters. And Warner’s “Grudge Match, »
