Marisa Tomei on Playing Aunt May in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ Sequels and Hollywood Sexism

21 July 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After one Oscar win, two nominations, and roles in more than 60 movies, Marisa Tomei needs no introduction. Yet playing Aunt May in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” has changed the energy around her. She noticed it on the day of her interview with Variety when a disdainful contractor in her Manhattan building in the West Village suddenly offered a welcoming smile. “He pulled out a picture for me to sign for his son,” Tomei recalled, with a laugh.

With nearly $500 million in box office receipts worldwide, “Spider-Man” is one of the biggest hits of the year. The reboot of the comic-book series features Tom Holland as a high-school web slinger. And his Aunt May is hipper, too, than the version played by Rosemary Harris in the 2002 tentpole. Tomei spoke to Variety about not watching other “Spider-Men” films and how she found the character.

How has the reception been to your “Spider-Man?”

I think the most gratifying has been the reaction »

BAMcinemaFest Review: ‘Princess Cyd’ is a Generous, Humanistic Drama

17 June 2017 5:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Is there a director more generous to his characters than Stephen Cone? Watching his films, one gets a sense that he doesn’t use the medium simply to tell stories but to exercise his curiosity and discover the things that make us human. In the hands of another filmmaker, Princess Cyd‘s two leads would’ve been pitted against each other and engaged in battle until a facile discovery in the denouement made them realize how much they had in common and led to a warm reconciliation. But not in Cone’s film, perhaps for the very notion that no one else is interested in telling the stories of characters such as these — perhaps because no one else can.

We first hear of Cyd through an emergency call, where we learn two people have died in a shooting that leaves only a little girl behind as the survivor. When we »

Roger Smith, ‘77 Sunset Strip’ Star and Ann-Margret’s Husband, Dies at 84

5 June 2017 6:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Roger Smith, who starred in the series “77 Sunset Strip” and was married to actress Ann-Margret, died Sunday in Sherman Oaks. He was 84.

The handsome leading man retired from acting after being diagnosed with myasthenia gravis in 1980. After that, he managed his wife’s career and produced several of her TV specials. The couple had celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on May 8.

On “77 Sunset Strip,” Smith played detective Jeff Spencer, who partnered with Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as his partner. The show ran from 1958 to 1964, though Smith left in 1963. His Spencer character made appearances on other detective shows of the period including “Surfside 6” and “Hawaiian Eye.”

After “77 Sunset Strip” ended its run, Smith had the title role in the comedy series “Mr. Roberts,” adapted from the movie about a World War II Navy lieutenant.

He also appeared in movies including “Man of a Thousand Faces,” “No Time to Be Young” and “Auntie Mame.”

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’: Alison Wright On How Her Fictional Character May Fare Better Than Real Women in Film

28 March 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If your favorite “Feud: Bette and Joan” character is Pauline, Alison Wright gets it.

“I kind of love her too,” she told IndieWire. “She’s a strong, assertive, capable, able woman, and not a victim in any sort of sense. She’s got her head screwed on pretty tight. Ryan [Murphy] initially described her as being whip-smart and cool as a cucumber, so that’s an attractive concept right there.”

Wright first became familiar to FX audiences as another 20th century secretary, “poor Martha” of “The Americans.” But the two characters couldn’t be further apart.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Adriana’s Pact’

21 February 2017 10:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The end of “Adriana’s Pact” hits audiences like a hurricane: As director Lissette Orozco confronts her aunt Adriana Rivas via Skype about her association with Augusto Pinochet’s Gestapo-like secret police, the older woman goes on the attack, screaming at her niece for betraying family ties. Long before then, the viewer knows what Orozco hopes not to believe, but even so, the moment is deeply chilling. “Adriana’s Pact” is a brave documentary in which the director allows us to witness her loss of innocence, and while the exposure must be painful, its rawness will translate to major festival coverage as well as probable specialized boutique release.

Adriana, known in the family as Chany, was Orozco’s idol, her Auntie Mame who would sweep into Chile from Australia laden with gifts and trailing an air of glamour. Then during a visit in 2006, Rivas was arrested and charged with working for Dina, »

Grab Some Tissues, Because Mark Hamill's Goodbye Letter to Carrie Fisher Will Make You a Blubbering Fool

3 January 2017 8:45 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mark Hamill has much love for his Star Wars costar Carrie Fisher. While many celebrities were shocked by her death, the actor, who played her brother in the franchise, took the news especially hard. Aside from releasing a heartwarming statement about his "beloved space-twin," Hamill recently paid tribute to Fisher with a farewell letter in The Hollywood Reporter. "Carrie and I occupied a unique area in each other's lives," he wrote. "It was like we were in a garage band together that somehow hit it huge. We had no idea the impact Star Wars would have on the world. I remember we were out on tour right before the movie opened. By the time we got to Chicago, there was a crowd at the airport. I said, 'Hey look, you guys, there must be somebody famous on the plane.' I was looking around to see who it might be. »

Mark Hamill Remembers Carrie Fisher in Emotional Star Wars Tribute

2 January 2017 12:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many of us were very ready for 2017 to come around and hit the reset button, in hopes we can have a less tragic year in terms of loss than 2016. It was a bad year for losing beloved people, but when Carrie Fisher passed away last week it seemed like one of the hardest to take was saved for last. Now her Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill has penned a touching tribute to her, detailing some of their early adventures working on Star Wars with one another.

The actor who was responsible for bringing Luke Skywalker to life wrote the column for The Hollywood Reporter and really opened up about his friendship with Carrie Fisher. Most of the column focused on the early days of working on Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and how their friendship blossomed via their experience making those movies together. »

Mark Hamill’s Emotional Carrie Fisher Tribute: ‘I Was Just in Awe of Her’

2 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Carrie Fisher was one of the last celebrities to pass away in 2016, and also one of the hardest to lose. Her iconic role as Princess Leia, acerbic wit and mental-health advocacy all made her a singular presence over the last 40 years; the fact that her mother Debbie Reynolds followed her just a day later is almost too sad to comment on. Fisher’s “Star Wars” co-star Mark Hamill is even more devastated than most, and has written a guest column expressing his grief in the Hollywood Reporter.
