Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie Brings Back Two of the Greatest Red Hot Messes Ever - and Kate Moss!

22 July 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Ab Fab brand - the exuberantly vulgar misadventures of two boozily dysfunctional middle-aged fashionistas - apparently never goes out of style. And isn't that wonderful, sweetie? Isn't it? In the big-screen reboot of the classic British sitcom, publicist Eddy (Jennifer Saunders) sets out to land a new client (none other than supermodel Kate Moss) with the help, as always, of best pal/enabler Patsy (Joanna Lumley). Times are hard, the Bolly's dried up, and the credit cards have been cut up. In desperation, Patsy cries out she needs "hand money," and Eddie must woo Moss as her next big client. »

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie – Review

22 July 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie reunites fashionista-wannabee gal pals Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) from the 1990s hit British TV comedy for more of their hard partying, party-crashing, champagne-swilling inappropriate shenanigans.

First off: if you are not already a fan steeped in the old British TV show Absolutely Fabulous but think Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie might give you a taste of what all the fuss was about, forget it – this film is not for you. Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is strictly for fans, and unlike some movie adaptions, it does not give the uninitiated even much thought. It is possible to watch the whole film with nary a chuckle, having the nagging feeling there are plenty of in-jokes there soaring over your head. You would be right.

If you are a committed Ab Fab fan, the movie version may well be hilarious. At the promotional screening, there »

Kristen Bell Looks So Much Like Marilyn Monroe You Might Have to Do a Double Take

20 July 2016 6:12 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kristen Bell might be busy making the talk show rounds for her latest movie, Bad Moms, but she could easily be promoting Some Like It Hot or The Seven Year Itch judging from how much she's been looking like Marilyn Monroe lately. With her bright blond hair and a plunging silver top that looked more than a little similar to Marilyn's iconic white dress, the Frozen actress was the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour as she made her way into the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios in La on Tuesday. Kristen happily posed for a bunch of selfies with a group of excited fans outside the studio and flashed a few wide smiles for photographers. Take a look at more photos from her afternoon out below, and then see all the hilarious things she recently shared about her daughters! »

27 June 2016 5:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

June is ending on a quiet note for horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases, as we only have six titles coming our way on June 28th.

Blue Underground has shown some love to two cult classics with their Blu-ray double feature of Circus of Fear and Five Golden Dragons, and Arrow Video is resurrecting another cult classic (albeit one that is a bit more recent) with their Return of the Killer Tomatoes Special Edition Blu-ray.

Other notable titles being released this Tuesday include Alien Strain, Shark Exorcist, Forgotten Tales, and Hotel Inferno.

Alien Strain (Mti Home Video, DVD)

After his girlfriend vanishes without a trace on a camping trip, he quickly goes from witness to suspect. Now, a year later, she returns to the very spot from which she was taken, but not like she was before.

11 strange or ill-advised abandoned movie sequels

27 June 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jun 30, 2016

Jessica Rabbit kidnapped by Nazis. Costner rescuing Princess Diana. We look back at a few strange movie sequels that were never made…

The multi-million dollar success of any movie will inevitably leave Hollywood executives clamouring for a sequel. And while there are plenty of movies whose stories are open-ended enough to warrant a return to the creative well, there are many times when coming up with a follow-up idea requires all sorts of imaginative leaps. Just look at something like Alien: Resurrection, which had to come up an elaborate reason why Ripley had (spoiler alert) managed to survive a swan-dive into a lead foundry in Alien 3.

Which brings us to this list, which is devoted to a few of the weirder sequel ideas that never made it to the big screen. An E.T. sequel in which little Elliott gets tortured by aliens? Forrest Gump dancing with Princess Diana? »

‘The Secret Life Of Pets’ Review: Talking Animals Are Fun, But Don’t Expect the Pixar Touch

16 June 2016 5:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

By Ben Croll

How’s this for a shock: it turns out this summer’s biggest, wildest action flick is… about talking dogs. Stranger things have happened, but there it is.  “The Secret Life of Pets” moves like a bat out of hell from frame one, though if you’re looking for any kind of emotion you might be barking up the wrong tree.

Comparisons to “Toy Story” will no doubt abound, not least because both films ask the same basic question –what do our playthings do when we’re not around to see them? — with the same winking glee. What’s more, both “The Secret Life of Pets” and the first entry in Pixar’s soon to be four strong franchise are animated by a shared basic tension. Both films »

When we met at Sundance this year, we agreed it would be wonderful to have him at Karlovy Vary as Amazon Studios’ chief producer so that this innovative project can be introduced in the Czech Republic.

“However, Ted would also like to use the unique opportunity to meet dozens of European distributors and individually discuss a new Amazon strategy that keeps them in the game.”

The 80 Best-Directed Films, According to the Directors Guild of America

3 May 2016 6:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With editors and cinematographers chiming in on the best examples of their craft in cinema history, it’s now time for directors to have a say. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Directors Guild of America, they’ve conducted a poll for their members when it comes to the 80 greatest directorial achievements in feature films since the organization’s founding in 1936. With 2,189 members participating, the top pick went to Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather, one of three films from the director making the top 10.

Even with films from nonmembers being eligible, the male-dominated, America-centric choices are a bit shameful (Kathryn Bigelow is the only female director on the list, and the first foreign film doesn’t show up until number 26), but not necessarily surprising when one looks at the make-up of its membership. As with any list, there’s bound to be disagreements (Birdman besting The Bicycle Thief, »

Sale of world’s biggest private collection includes costumes from Some Like It Hot and Bus Stop and will be exhibited on Queen Mary 2

A British man’s collection of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, including costumes worn by the Hollywood star in Some Like It Hot and There’s No Business Like Show Business, could fetch £2m when it goes under the hammer at a Los Angeles auction this year.

One outfit alone, a sheer black-and-nude beaded cocktail dress worn by Monroe as she sang I’m Through With Love on top of a grand piano in the 1959 Billy Wilder comedy Some Like It Hot, is expected to sell for between £140,000 and £280,000, auctioneers Julien’s said.

Don’T Bother To Knock (1952)

11 April 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The icon-establishing performances Marilyn Monroe gave in Howard HawksGentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) and in Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot (1959) are ones for the ages, touchstone works that endure because of the undeniable comic energy and desperation that sparked them from within even as the ravenous public became ever more enraptured by the surface of Monroe’s seductive image of beauty and glamour. Several generations now probably know her only from these films, or perhaps 1955’s The Seven-Year Itch, a more famous probably for the skirt-swirling pose it generated than anything in the movie itself, one of director Wilder’s sourest pictures, or her final completed film, The Misfits (1961), directed by John Huston, written by Arthur Miller and costarring Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift.

But in Don’t Bother to Knock (1952) she delivers a powerful dramatic performance as Nell, a psychologically devastated, delusional, perhaps psychotic young woman apparently on »

Delmer Daves' easygoing cattle drive western can't make an action hero out of Jack Lemmon, but with fine work from co-star Glenn Ford it presents a thoughtful anti-myth: no glorious rescues or noble gunfights, and the demure maiden doesn't wait for the handsome cowboy hero.

Why are movie comedies getting so long?

Is the movie comedy that pushes two hours and change really a modern problem? And why are so many comedies so long?

Shakespeare wrote "Brevity is the soul of wit", which partly explains why there's only one good joke in Hamlet. John Michael McDonagh (Calvary, The Guard) said in an interview with this site “if it takes you two hours to tell a story you have failed as a filmmaker. 105 minutes tops is all you need if you're talented.”

The recent Tina Fey/Amy Poehler film Sisters is two hours long. While I enjoyed it, and laughed a lot, it starts to drag slightly in the middle of the party sequence, and feels like it might have benefited from a more brutal editing, killing some darlings and indulgence. It is a film with more to it than creating laughter, but not to the extent that it doesn't »

6 Days til Oscar. Trivia Party

22 February 2016 9:45 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're less than a week from Hollywood's High Holy Night. Are you excited yet?

For today's trivia party we'll look at the only people to win exactly six Oscars. Four men. It's always men (sigh). Only 11 people have won more Oscars than these four men. I did not include confusing cases like Visual FX guru Dennis Murren -- IMDb argues exactly 6 but that depends on how you count them since his prizes are many and a confusing jumble of technical achievements, special Oscars, and regular competitive statues. (Unfortunately I couldn't find photographs of the set decorators) 

Gordon HollingsheadGORDON Hollingshead (1892-1952)

This producer won more Oscars in the short film categories than anyone other than the legendary Walt Disney and Frederick Quimby (of Tom & Jerry fame) but he won them for live action films. His first Oscar, though, was in the inaguaral year (1933) of a category called "Best Assistant Director" which »
