Here's What a Musical Based on the '80s Classic 'Heathers' Looks Like

12 December 2013 10:00 AM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One of cinema’s snarkiest, most quotable films, Heathers, is making its off-Broadway debut in spring 2014. The Michael Lehmann-directed movie about a group of mean girls at an Ohio high school, the Heathers, and the rebellious outsider (Christian Slater) who draws one of them (Winona Ryder) into his nefarious plan to get rid of the other girls, has been a hit at the Hudson Backstage Theatre in Los Angeles with plans for a “limited engagement” at New World Stages, according to THR, and previews start March 17 (opening night is March 31). We have two clips of a three-concert performance in New York City to share if you’re curious. Andy Fickman of Reefer Madness fame directed the production and is attached to the spring run.

The Defenders: 10 Actresses To Play Jessica Jones

9 November 2013 4:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I am a big time Jessica Jones nut. I read every issue of Alias (mainly because I really dug Brian Michael Bendis’ stuff and the Max line at the time – and Alias was the two combined). When The Pulse came out, I started reading that. I had a copy of the New Avengers Annual #1 where she gets married as I was also following New Avengers at the time. I even have a copy of the What If comic where Jones joins the Avengers and prevents the House of M from occurring.

So when I heard a few years ago that someone was trying to bring Alias to the small screen, I was over the moon. Sure they would have to change the name, lest it gets confused with a certain other show starring Jennifer Garner. So I was happy with it being called Aka Jessica Jones. Sure whatever, as long »

Eastwood One of 'Least Talented' Filmmakers Working Today?

9 September 2013 6:43 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Faye Dunaway in ‘Mommie Dearest’ — Joan Crawford portrayal ‘Greatest Bad Performance’? Clint Eastwood Best Picture Oscar nominee among ‘Greatest Bad Movies’ See previous post: “From John Travolta to Bob Dylan: ‘The Greatest Bad Movies of All Time’: Q&A with Phil Hall.” (Photo: Mommie Dearest, Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford.) I noticed you have included some Bad Movies that were well received upon their release, e.g., Clint Eastwood’s Best Picture Oscar nominee ‘Mystic River’ (2003) and Henry King’s ‘In Old Chicago’ (1937) — another Best Picture nominee. Why are those movies not only Bad Movies, but also Great Bad Movies? I need to begin my answer by insisting that my new book is strictly about opinion. I don’t pretend to be the author of a be-all/end-all encyclopedia on the subject. Many people may disagree with the selection of films, both from an inclusive viewpoint and from »

Melissa Etheridge Supports Legalizing Pot: Medical Marijuana Eased "Excruciating Side Effects" of Chemo

4 June 2013 2:02 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Melissa Etheridge thinks it's high time lawmakers set aside their "old Reefer Madness fears." The Grammy and Oscar winner has whole-heartedly thrown her support behind the responsible legalization of marijuana in the United States, writing in a CNN.com op-ed that pot helped ease the "excruciating side effects" of chemotherapy back when she was battling breast cancer. "People use marijuana for different reasons, and I needed it to get me through tough times," wrote Etheridge, who first revealed that she went the "natural route" back in 2005. "I used it every day during chemo: It gave me an appetite so I was able to eat and keep my strength up. It also helped with »

Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian Odom Talk Kim's "Difficult" Pregnancy and Kanye West's Baby Shower Appearance

31 May 2013 12:42 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Like mother, like daughter! Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian Odom visited Ryan Seacrest this morning to dish on what's to come on the eighth season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The two revealed details on Kim revealing the gender of her baby and how proud they are that the expectant mama is sharing her less-than-perfect pregnancy for fans to see. The burning question on everyone's mind is: Will Kanye West be in attendance for Sunday's baby shower? "Scott [Disick] and Lamar [Odom] might bring Kanye at the end…because Kanye feels it's a little weird if he's the only guy," Khloé explained. And with such big news and a new addition to the »

Tyler Perry's Temptation: Film Review

29 March 2013 10:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Even grading on the curve that inevitably must be applied to the prolific multihyphenate filmmaker’s efforts, Tyler Perry’s Temptation merits an F. This laughable melodrama, subtitled Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, must have seemed over-the-top in its original form as one of his perennially touring stage shows. Onscreen, it somehow manages to be at once wildly overblown and terminally boring.

New 60-Second TV Spot for Jack the Giant Slayer – ‘Know Jack’

26 February 2013 1:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Jack the Giant Slayer will be hitting the big screen in the Us this Friday, and all signs suggest Bryan Singer’s latest blockbuster will be racking up big numbers at the box office over the coming weekend.

Warner Bros. have done a strong job of promoting the film in recent months. And Nicholas Hoult’s box office-topping performance in Warm Bodies last month can only have helped pique interest for Jack the Giant Slayer.

We saw a great new TV spot land yesterday, along with a recent new poster. And following them up comes a new 60-second UK TV spot, promising an epic, action-filled blockbuster adventure.

New TV Spot for Jack the Giant Slayer – ‘Giant Adventure’

25 February 2013 11:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer has just a few more days before it lands on the big screen, and we’re looking forward to seeing how it fares at the Us box office this weekend.

Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, Warm Bodies) topped the box office in the States last month with the release of Warm Bodies. And I’m hoping he’ll be doing the same thing again with Jack the Giant Slayer, further cementing his status as a rising star with a lead role in a blockbuster of this size.

Warner Bros. have recently released a new trailer along with a new UK poster. And now they’ve debuted the latest TV spot, giving us a look at the epic action we have coming our way very soon.

New Poster for Jack the Giant Slayer – ‘Escape’

25 February 2013 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Bryan Singer (X-Men) returns to the big screen for the first time in five years this weekend, with the release of Jack the Giant Slayer in Us cinemas.

Singer’s anticipated return behind the camera sees him directing rising young star Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class), who take the lead once more after topping the box office last month in Warm Bodies.

We saw a great new trailer for Singer’s and Warner Bros.’ upcoming blockbuster a few weeks ago, and now a new UK poster has debuted, dubbed ‘Escape’, with Hoult front and centre alongside Eleanor Tomlinson.

“An ancient war is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants.

11 February 2013 8:58 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Bryan Singer (X-Men) returns us to blockbuster territory next month with the release of Jack the Giant Slayer. Giving us an epic big screen take on the classic beanstalk fairy tale, the film promises to be packed with action, and we’re looking forward to its arrival.

Following the title change (from Jack the Giant Killer), we saw the first official trailer launched late last year. And with just under a month to go before it hits the Us, Apple have released a great new full-length trailer, following on from the first clip and trailer preview we saw earlier.

Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer will be hitting the big screen in just a few weeks’ time, bringing the classic beanstalk tale to life on an epic scale. We’re expecting a new trailer to land later on today, and ahead of its debut, Warner Bros. have released a trailer preview, along with the first clip from the film.

Nicholas Hoult, who topped the Us box office last weekend in Warm Bodies, is set to do the same thing here at the start of next month. Hoult has deservedly been on the rise in recent years, and we’re looking forward to seeing more of him in the years to come.

New TV Spot for Jack the Giant Slayer – ‘Am I Dead?’

6 February 2013 10:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Bryan Singer’s blockbuster retelling of the classic beanstalk story hits the big screen in just a few weeks’ time, bringing Jack the Giant Slayer to life in epic proportions.

Rising young star Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, Warm Bodies) is front and centre here. And after seeing Warm Bodies top the Us box office over the weekend with just shy of $20m., he’s set for a repeat performance with Jack the Giant Slayer at the start of next month, likely with much bigger numbers.

We saw a great new TV spot and the final Us poster surface last week. And now Warner Bros. have released the third TV spot, giving us another great look at the scale of the action here.

Clip joint: The top five 'meet cutes'

23 January 2013 9:36 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A 'meet cute' is a plot device enabling the first meeting of a film's romantic lead characters. The rest, dear viewer, is history

Each week one reader offers up five of their favourite film clips on a subject of their choosing – and we ask you to tell us what other movie scenes should have been included. This week's is from john Carvill, who previously wrote a clip joint on taking the train.

If you've got an idea for a future clip joint, email adam.boult@guardian.co.uk.

The 'meet cute' is Hollywood screenwriters' name for a standard plot device in which a couple meet in a way that's charming, ironic, or just generally amusing.

Golden age film-makers such as Billy Wilder used to stockpile ideas for meet cutes, and Wilder was sufficiently adept at dreaming them up that he talked his way out of studio objections to his idea »
