The Voice Predictions: Who's Most Likely to Win Season 10?

24 May 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There are a few different ways to predict who’ll win Season 10 of The Voice.

RelatedThe Voice Performance Finale Recap: Girl, You’ll Be a Winner Soon?

You could take a deep dive into the contestants’ iTunes sales results for Monday’s performance finale (always a solid predictive tool). You could check back over the last few months and see how many times each of the finalist cracked the iTunes Top 10, since sales from the entire season (including the Top 10 multiplier) factor into the cumulative vote tally. Or you could just ask yourself, “Which one’s on Team Blake? »

Could Alisan Porter Give Christina Aguilera Her First The Voice Win?

24 May 2016 5:52 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ever since Alisan Porter joined Christina Aguilera's The Voice team in the season 10 premiere (and was joined by a ton of similarly talented singers), it's been a very, very real possibility that this could be the season a female coach finally wins the show. And in the final moments of the season ten finale performance show, Porter brought her coach to tears. After her last remaining singer delivered a particularly moving performance of West Side Story's "Somewhere," Aguilera broke down. "If anybody deserves to take the cake and be the winner of The Voice, it's you, Alisan," she told the actress-turned-singer (yes, Porter played Curly Sue in the childhood classic). "Thank you so »

‘Hamilton’ Producer Jeffrey Seller and Flody Suarez Sign Pact with Universal TV

23 May 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller and producing partner Flody Suarez have signed a deal with Universal Television to develop new projects for the studio.

The producing pact furthers the duo’s association with NBC and Universal Television chairman Bob Greenblatt, who is one of “Hamilton’s” investors. Suarez previously served as VP of development at NBC, where he worked on shows including “ER” and “Just Shoot Me.”

“I’m so pleased to have Universal Television in business with one of the theater’s leading producers, Jeffrey Seller, and his producing partner, Flody Suarez,” said Greenblatt. “Jeffrey’s spectacular track record on Broadway and his knack for finding and nurturing brilliant new talent, such as the creative forces behind ‘Rent,’ ‘Avenue Q,’ ‘In the Heights’ and ‘Hamilton,’ is nothing short of remarkable. There is more and more cross-pollination these days from theater to television, especially at NBC, and we’re excited to »

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, »

Coates, Clint Eastwood, Roger Ebert, Nora Ephron, James Earl Jones, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Kathleen Kennedy, John Lasseter, Spike Lee, David Lynch, Helen Mirren, Robert Towne, Cicely Tyson, Haskell Wexler and John Williams.

Moreno won an Oscar for 1961’s “West Side Story” and is one of the few performers with an Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony). She was recently saluted at the Newport Beach Film Festival and her upcoming projects include a “One Day at a Time” reboot for Netflix. »

Mindy Newell: Wilson Fisk and Hell’s Kitchen

2 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

 

“Today, the only reminder that this stretch of (Manhattan’s) SoHo was once a forest of filling stations known as Gasoline Alley is a coffee shop of the same name that sells single-origin coffee beans from Burundi.” • Sarah Maslin Nir, “With Gas Station’s Closing, A Fuel Desert Expands in Manhattan,” The New York Times, April 22, 2016

“On a block where a kebab could once be had at 2 a.m. from Bereket, the 24-hour Turkish restaurant that was forced to close in 2014, there will now be a 30,000-square-foot Equinox gym and spa with a lounge and juice bar; condo residents will be able to access the two-story gym through a private entrance. Gone too, are places like Ray’s Pizza and Empanada Mama. While such spots and the unmemorable single-story buildings that once housed them could not claim any historic significance, they were popular haunts that gave the area its character… »

Watch: Santino Fontana Sings His ‘Frozen’ Audition

29 April 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

If you’re ever trying to choose the right audition song given only a few hints about your material, consider Santino Fontana.  Leading up to his audition for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen,” the actor knew only that his potential role was a charming and overly confident prince. Unsure of what to do, he allegedly walked into the recording studio for his first audition and sang what you can hear in the audio clip below. “I Feel Pretty,” the classic tune from “West Side Story,” ended up comprising all the elements of a perfect audition song for Fontana: a melody that showed off his vocal range, a mini-performance full of pizzazz that demonstrated his Broadway bona fides, and most importantly, lyrics that allowed producers to clearly imagine him inhabiting a pompous Disney prince. By adding his own embellishments (“What mirror, where?”) and tweaking Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics from “I feel »

Twin Peaks Cast Revealed! (And You’ll Never Believe some of the names!)

25 April 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

David Lynch today unveiled the full cast list for his upcoming Showtime Twin Peaks follow-up — and is it a doozy. Two hundred and seventeen actors are credited, with both newcomers and returning thespians. Previously only Kyle MacLachlan had been confirmed as FBI Agent Dale Cooper.

Will Agent Cooper use a smartphone?

Let’s check out some of the more interesting names on the list, shall we?

Michael Cera: The erstwhile Scott Pilgrim has been keeping busy since his breakout role as George Michael Bluth on Arrested Development, but he usually sticks with comedy (Year One, Superbad). It’ll be interesting to see him tackle something so dark.

Will this hair get frizzier in perpetually damp Twin Peaks?

Trent Reznor: The Oscar-winning composer and Nine Inch Nails wizard has only two credits under his belt (aside from three video shorts): a 2000 Swedish thriller called Recycled and the 1987 Michael J. Fox »

Rita Moreno Continues to Build on Her Prized Legacy

21 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s fitting that “Remember Me” is the name of Rita Moreno’s new road-trip comedy. Since her 1950 film debut (as Rosita Moreno) in “So Young, So Bad,” the Emmy-, Tony-, Grammy- and Oscar-winning actress has created many unforgettable characters — the loose-lipped Zelda Zanders in “Singing in the Rain,” the firebrand Anita in “West Side Story,” the zany Googie Gomez in “The Ritz” and the compassionate Sister Reimondo in “Oz,” to name a few — more than earning her a Legend Award at this year’s Newport Beach Film Festival.

She’s received so many honors, in fact, she “stopped counting — I think now they’re saying, ‘Quick, let’s get her before she kicks the bucket!’” the 84-year-old says with a hearty laugh. After the radiant star sang youthfully during her 2014 SAG Life Achievement Award speech, that seems like a lifetime away. “(SAG) said ‘You have one minute,’” she recalls. »

Barbra Streisand, Barry Levinson Reviving ‘Gypsy’ for STX Entertainment (Exclusive)

11 April 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Barbra Streisand may realize her dreams of bringing Mama Rose to the big screen.

STX Entertainment is in advanced negotiations to make Gypsy with the Grammy and Oscar winner taking the lead role, and Oscar-winner Barry Levinson (“Rain Man”) directing. Production on the film hit a snag last fall after Universal Pictures put the project into turnaround. It had been developing “Gypsy” for several years, stretching back to STX Chairman Adam Fogelson’s days as the movie studio’s head.

Streisand will produce the film with Joel Silver (“Lethal Weapon”), with Richard Lagravenese (“The Fisher King”) writing the script. The actress is involved in developing the script.

It’s a meaty role for Streisand, one that will see her playing one of the most infamous stage mothers in history and belting out such signature numbers as “Everything’s Coming Up Roses.” Previous actresses who have put their stamp on Mama Rose include Ethel Merman, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Dark (1979)

2 April 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Any horror movie that starts off with a Serlingesque voiceover has my attention. And when you make your antagonist a hulking alien who looks like an eight foot tall Gene Simmons sans Botox with a proclivity for ripping off people’s heads And shooting laser beams out of his eyes, you are granted permission to take all my money. Welcome to The Dark (1979), a fun throwback to a time when audiences weren’t beholden of such things as logic and coherence to have a ripping drive-in experience.

But what audiences do always appreciate is a good cast, strong direction, and some solid jumps. The Dark answers the call though in such an unassuming way that before you could blink, it was gone from theatres (but hung around drive-ins for a bit, as horror films were wont to do). It’s so low key that viewers at the time probably felt »

A Brighter Summer Day

26 March 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Superb filmmaking! Edward Yang's chronicle of the children of Chinese exiles in Taiwan follows one teen's strange story of accidental delinquency, muted romance and pervasive violence in a closed society fed on American Rock 'n' Roll and Cold War militarism. Almost exactly as long as Gone With the Wind, Yang's intimate epic is one of those 'best movies ever' that few Americans have heard of. A Brighter Summer Day Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 804 1991 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 236 min. / Gu ling jie shao nian sha ren shi jian / available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date March 22, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Chen Chang, Lisa Yang, Kuo-Chu Chang, Elaine Jin, Chuan Wang, Han Chang, Hsiu-Chiung Chiang, Stephanie Lai, Chi-tsan Wang, Lawrence Ko, Chih-Kang Tan, Ming-Hsin Chang, Chun-Lung Jung, Hui-Kuo Chou.

Twitchfilm is headed to Tampa! We're very pleased to have been invited to the land of Magic Mike to cover the Gasparilla International Film Festival that starts next week.

Better yet, there's an opportunity to interview a very rare creature indeed, a real life Egot. The Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award-winning Rita Moreno is getting a Lifetime Achievement award from the fest and I could not be more excited to meet the legend.

Natalie Wood's Daughter Opens Up About Her Untimely Death: 'I Have Spent a Lot of Time Trying to Figure Out How I Am Different from Her and How I Am Similar'

19 March 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

One of the things Natasha Gregson Wagner remembers most about her mother, actress Natalie Wood, is her smell. "I knew when she was home because I would smell her perfume," Gregson Wagner told the New York Times in a Saturday story. "She would waft through the house." Woods' favorite was a gardenia perfume, Jungle Gardenia, which she wore "all her life." Though she has rarely spoken of her mother's death at 43, Gregson Wagner, now 45, opened up to the Times - not just about Wood's absence, but her essence, the spirit of her life before it ended far too soon.

Star Trek: the battle to make The Motion Picture

Massive cost overruns, script rewrites and an angry Leonard Nimoy. Ryan charts the battle to make the original Star Trek movie...

After years in limbo, the rush to make a Star Trek movie suddely began in earnest on the 28th of March 1978. That day saw a lavish press conference arranged by Paramount president Michael Eisner, chairman Barry Diller and the entire cast of the original Star Trek series. Eisner announced to an assembled group of reporters that a film spin-off from the cult Trek TV show was finally going to be made. Its appropriately grand title - Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

The director, Eisner continued, would be Robert Wise - an industry veteran who was not only a safe pair of hands (he’d directed such hits as West Side Story and The Sound Of Music), but also had a proven track record with science fiction. »
