It's in glorious Technicolor Metrocolor, CinemaScope and StereoPhonic Sound! Fred Astaire's final MGM musical gives him Cyd Charisse and a Cole Porter score, plus some nice Hermes Pan choreography.

Misty Copeland Is Ready for Her First Season as a Principal Dancer for Abt: 'It's a Perfect Storm'

9 May 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

She's been making headlines all year, but Misty Copeland's 2016 is really only just beginning. Copland, 33, is set to begin her first full season as a principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre - and it's the first ever principal season for a black female dancer in the company's 75 years. The season, which begins tonight at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City, may be a first for Copeland, but it's also a return to Copeland's past. The first role she'll be taking on this season is Firebird, the first leading role she ever danced for Abt, more than four years ago. »

Hail, Caesar! review – superbly silly

6 March 2016 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Coen brothers conjure up nostalgic joy from this hilarious knockabout homage to the golden age of film

The Coen brothers’ lovingly goofy latest comes on like a breezy flipside companion-piece to Barton Fink – a jaunt through the underbelly of old Hollywood which finds not the fiery hell of the tortured artist but the upbeat splash of synchronised swimming, On the Town toe-tapping and toga-wearing biblical balderdash. With a ramshackle plot that appears to have been cooked up after drawing deep on the Dude’s biggest bong, the film pinballs between awol movie stars, red-scare nightmares and Bikini Atoll bomb tests, while raising important questions of whether God is still angry (“what, he got over it?”), how to make a lasso out of spaghetti, and the secret of balancing a bunch of bananas on your head (it’s all in the hips, lips, eyes and thighs, apparently).

It’s 1951, and »

Quantico EPs, Star Offer Crucial Intel on the FBI Drama's Winter Premiere

4 March 2016 10:03 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The smoke has cleared — literally — and the rubble has been carted away from the blast site, but don’t assume that means that the three-month time jump between Quantico‘s second bombing and its midseason premiere provided much in the way of clarity or peace for Agent Alex Parrish.

“She told Simon to take his hand off the trigger,” star Priyanka Chopra reminds TVLine, referring to the moments following suspected terrorist Elias’ suicidal swan dive from a midtown Manhattan hotel. Alex was sure the threat had been mitigated. She was wrong.

Movie Review – Hail, Caesar! (2016)

1 March 2016 6:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hail, Caesar!, 2016.

Directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen.

Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes and Alden Ehrenreich.

Synopsis:

A studio fixer in 1950s Hollywood has his work cut out keeping his stars in line. An A list actress is pregnant but decidedly single. More important is the disappearance of the studio’s leading man, which puts its next big-budget epic in jeopardy.

Prepare to bathe yet again in the golden glow of Tinsel Town in its heyday, oh lovers of 50s Hollywood! Just a month after its release, Jay Roach’s Trumbo gets something of a companion piece from no less than Joel and Ethan Coen. Hail, Caesar! sees the brothers in playful mood, venturing back into comedy, adding a touch of satire and mixing it all together with the utmost affection and relish for the period setting.

Watch Channing Tatum's Singing Sailor in a Musical Scene From 'Hail, Caesar!'

3 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Channing Tatum makes his Coen Brothers debut in the new comedy Hail, Caesar!, and hopefully it's not his last collaboration with the filmmakers. Especially if they let him keep doing what he does best: dance. In his first scene in the movie, Tatum taps his way through one of three big musical numbers that pay homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood. He also sings -- yes, it's really him -- as an actor named Burt Gurney playing a sailor in a movie-within-the-movie. The tune is called "No Dame," and it's an original by Henry Krieger and Willie Reale of Dreamgirls acclaim. The number recalls such classics as 1945's Anchors Aweigh and 1949's On the Town, both of which star Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra as crooning seamen. But "No Dame&quot...

Film Review: ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If there’s such a thing as poker-faced exuberance, you can feel it in every loving, teasing frame of Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Hail, Caesar!,” an inside-showbiz lark that regards the 1950s studio system with the utmost skepticism even as it becomes an expression of movie love at its purest. Starring Josh Brolin as a hard-working industry “fixer” tasked with keeping big-budget productions on track and wayward stars in line, this gorgeously crafted romp through the backlots and Malibu enclaves of Hollywood’s Golden Age tosses off plenty of eccentric comedy and musical razzle-dazzle before taking on richer, more ruminative dimensions, ultimately landing on the funny-sad question of whether life is but a dream factory. Although it boasts enough marquee names and splashy, crowdpleasing angles to deliver good returns for Universal, this is as strange and singular an offering as anything the Coens have ever done, and as such its more thoughtful, »
