Theater Reviews: Scenes From a Marriage and The Money Shot

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You can’t accuse the Belgian director Ivo van Hove of picking fights with weaklings. His productions of Hedda Gabler, The Little Foxes, and A Streetcar Named Desire, all at New York Theater Workshop, have sometimes sucker-punched those venerable plays but in the end did no harm. I realize that’s not a high bar to set, but I have not usually been a fan of van Hove’s garish intrusions, which too often literalized sexual and aggressive drives in ways that made nonsense of the repressive worlds from which they arose. So I thought I was in for more of the same when Nytw announced that it would be producing a version of Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes From a Marriage that van Hove had conceived and directed for his company, Toneelgroep Amsterdam. All anyone was talking about was the staging — and perhaps a part of the director’s motivation »

Casting Society to honor 'Into the Woods' director Rob Marshall at Artios Awards

13 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While the Oscars have yet to make room for casting directors — a pivotal part of the Best Picture equation — the oversight isn't stopping the Casting Society of America from readying its third decade of picking up the Academy's slack. Csa announced Monday morning that the 30th Annual Artios Awards will honor Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning director Rob Marshall and Emmy Award-winning casting director Ellen Lewis for their individual work in the world of casting. The news arrives with nominations in categories of television, theater, new media and short film, and on the heels of the ceremony's move from November to Jan. 22, the thick of the awards season. Feature film nominations will be announced closer to the show date.

'Sons of Anarchy's' Kim Coates Says the Final Season Is 'Full Out, Full Throttle, Wiping Everybody Out'

16 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans.

If there's one "Soa" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's run. And we wouldn't have Tig without actor Kim Coates.

Coates has been working on film, stage, and TV for decades, and his career doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The versatile Canadian-born actor has appeared in everything from "Entourage" to "Waterworld" to "A Streetcar Named Desire" on Broadway.

Moviefone had the chance to chat with Coates about what fans will see this season on "Sons of Anarchy," as the show comes to its bittersweet end. He also revealed a bit of what »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

The Simpsons top 50 episodes

28 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob counts down the top 50 episodes of TV's longest-running animated series, The Simpsons...

Since its debut in 1989, across 552 episodes and 25 seasons, The Simpsons has become one of the most revered and beloved TV programmes of all time. It’s a true cultural phenomenon that’s influenced not just animation, but all areas of TV comedy and sitcom. For so many of us, its quotes and catchphrases have permeated our everyday vernacular, from single words like “crisitunity” and “embiggen” to phrases “you don’t win friends with salad” and “everything’s coming up Milhouse.”

Personal opinions may vary, but for me the show’s peak years were from season 4 through to 10. They’re consistently funny, all killer and no filler runs with barely a dud episode to be found between 1992-1998. Past this point the standard becomes a little more mixed, and recent seasons have been distinctly average at best. The »

Mark Ruffalo After ‘Normal Heart': ‘If A Piano Dropped On Me Tomorrow, I Did Ok”

10 August 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive, Updated At 6:06 p.m. with comments about Spotlight at end: You might call August, 2014 a full-circle month for Mark Ruffalo. His performance as Ned Weeks in Ryan Murphy‘s HBO version of The Normal Heart earned one of that film’s astonishing 16 Emmy nominations, with the winners to be announced on Aug. 25. He’s eager to catch the Broadway revival of the 1996 stage play that launched his career, Kenneth Lonergan‘s This Is Our Youth, which begins on the 18th with Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin.

Writing about his work in Lonergan’s You Can Count On Me, the New York Times’ Stephen Holden said, “Mr. Ruffalo’s star-making performance deserves to be added to the list of charismatic, grownup lost boys that includes the Marlon Brando of  A Streetcar Named Desire and the Jack Nicholson of Easy Rider.”

Yet this is the same guy who plays the Hulk in the Avengers franchise. »

'A Streetcar Named Desire': Theater Review

28 July 2014 8:11 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

London — Once a sensational fireworks display of explosive sexual chemistry, class and gender politics, A Streetcar Named Desire is now so firmly embedded in the American literary canon that it long ago lost its power to shock. But Australian-born director Benedict Andrews and former X-Files star Gillian Anderson make a commendable bid to reconnect with the primal passions at the heart of this much-staged Tennessee Williams classic in their bold new London revival. The fastest-selling production in the Young Vic's history will also be broadcast live to over 500 cinema screens worldwide on Sept. 16.

Gillian Anderson: actress with a very distinctive X factor | Observer profile

26 July 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The star of TV series The X-Files has gone on to distinguish herself on stage and screen. Now she's playing Blanche DuBois, a role she's long coveted

It is quite a feat for an actor to be intensely memorable without appearing needy or even demonstrative, but Gillian Anderson has managed it. The plume of scarlet hair she sported in the role that defined her, as the FBI agent Dana Scully in The X-Files, which ran for nine series between 1993 and 2002 and spawned two movies, is gone, replaced by dusky blond locks. Anderson keeps a low profile and is held in high esteem. She is well-known and yet exudes an aloofness that has prevented her from becoming a national treasure and not only because, divided between Britain (where she spent a chunk of her childhood and where she now lives and works) and the Us (which has claimed most of the »

Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight: A Dead Rabbit Pulled Out of a Hat

25 July 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The year’s inevitable Woody Allen film, Magic in the Moonlight, has a clever premise, an agreeable cast, delectable ‘20s period recreations of faux “Oriental” magic shows and Côte d’Azur garden parties, and an ever-slackening pulse. It starts off with a flourish and winds up limp, like a rabbit pulled out of a hat that turns out to be dead.Having gotten away with his last, more difficult trick — remaking A Streetcar Named Desire, except with zero sympathy for the protagonist — Allen probably thought that this one would be a cinch to put over. His hero, played by Colin Firth, is a British magician named Stanley who performs in a bald cap and Fu Manchu mustache as “Wei Ling Soo” — and is instantly recognizable from his crisp, misanthropic attack as Professor Henry Higgins. His Colonel Pickering is a magician named Burkan (Simon McBurney) who invites him to the South »

From Dwayne Johnson to Mrs Brown's Boys, we defend the indefensible

20 June 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Anyone can rave over Game Of Thrones, but a true critic earns their corn by going against public opinion. At least, that's what we told our writers when we asked them to defend this lot

In 1947, a young Marlon Brando very nearly missed out on the starring role in A Streetcar Named Desire because director Elia Kazan wanted an older, less attractive star for the part. Today, that prejudice remains in an entertainment industry reluctant to acknowledge the acting chops of such similarly studly thesps as Channing Tatum, Ryan Reynolds and above all Dwayne Johnson. Ever since he cast off his petrological wrestling persona with a revelatory turn in Richard Kellys bizarre, oft-misunderstood Southland Tales, Johnson has taken on a succession of challenging roles and challenged them right back. In Tooth Fairy, he created (where Vin Diesel failed in The Pacfier) the first sympathetic bodybuilding babysitter in Hollywood. In The Other Guys, »

Listen to Alex North's Original, Rejected '2001: A Space Odyssey' Score

19 May 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today, FilmmakerIQ posted the following snippet of Alex North's original score for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. The score was ultimately rejected and, in the case of the film's opening title sequence, the score was replaced by Richard Strauss's "Also sprach Zarathustra" composed in 1896. There are a couple ways to look and listen to this piece, but I think the best is to consider just how much we're all likely to prefer Kubrick's decision on which music to go with, especially once you you consider the following interview snippet from an interview in which Michel Ciment noted, "You have abandoned original film music in your last three films." Kubrick's response: Exclude a pop music score from what I am about to say. However good our best film composers may be, they are not a Beethoven, a Mozart or a Brahms. Why use music which is less »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus And Joe Biden Team Up In 'Veep' Video For White House Correspondents Dinner

5 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus teamed up with Vice President Joe Biden to create a short Veep inspired video, which was used to introduce President Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus And Joe Biden

In the video, Louis-Dreyfus, appearing as her Veep character, a fictional Vice President with Presidential aspirations, Selina Meyer, decided to skip the White House Correspondents Dinner with Biden and go on a secret tour of the West Wing instead.

The funny video also featured cameos from First Lady Michelle Obama, who gave them a lecture on eating right, Nancy Pelosi, who ran into the Veeps while getting “Gavel Time” tattooed on her forearm, and House Speaker John Boehner, who skipped the “snorespondents dinner” to watch a Panda eat bamboo on a television in his office.

Let's get ready to mumble! 14 amazingly incoherent performances

24 April 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Eh? What did he say?

Earlier this week, viewers complained that they couldn't make out half of what was being said in BBC One's new drama Jamaica Inn. A combination of Cornish accents and dodgy sound meant that most of the dialogue went over people's heads. Say what you want about Made in Chelsea or EastEnders, but at least you can follow what's going on.

Turn on the subtitles as Digital Spy takes a look back at some of the most confusing performances from TV and film, whether it was intentional or not.

1. Bane - Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises)

Fans of Christopher Nolan's Batman series were already concerned about Bane after seeing the first trailer. After reassurances that the sound will be altered in time for its full release, we are as confused as ever by what Bane was going on about. We thought Christian Bale's growling Batman was bad enough. »
