Katie Holmes Takes Up Arms In Miss Meadows Trailer

21 August 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is Katie Holmes the most unlikely vigilante yet? In Miss Meadows, which premiered at Tribeca earlier this year and will be arriving in theaters this November, the Batman Begins actress steps up to fight some crime herself – albeit while clad in tap shoes and garishly flowery dresses. The first trailer for the pic paints it as a bizarre cross between Mary Poppins and Hobo with a Shotgun – though the thriller doesn’t totally appear to have mastered that tonally bizarre combo.

The brief trailer shows Miss Meadows as a prim and proper elementary school teacher who enjoys teaching manners to her pupils… when she’s not blowing out the brains of her town’s miscreants. It’s a one-joke premise (how’s that for a split personality?!), but with James Badge Dale and Callan Mulvery in the supporting cast, perhaps Miss Meadows will be enjoyable from an acting standpoint. Then again, »

Watch: Killer Katie Holmes In First Teaser For ‘Miss Meadows’

21 August 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Oh you read that that right! Today we’ve got our first look at Miss Meadows that debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival and stars Katie Holmes as a kind kindergarten teacher, who’s also (seemingly) some kind of vigilant as well!

Written and directed by Karen Leigh Hopkins, it’s probably about time that Holmes took something different on and surely this leap will garner her a little more respect in the field. She’s considered to lack a little conviction with her roles but I actually didn’t mind her at all in Batman Begins, but it’s been a long time since Go (1999), when all that raw talent bubbled to the surface. 

In Miss Meadows, Holmes plays the title role, an elementary school teacher (Primary School for the UK) who helps the community and loves her garden. However, at night she’s seeking retribution and keeping the »

Watch: What If Michael Bay Directed 'Up'?

20 August 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Imagine if Michael Bay, the director of "Armageddon" and "Transformers," got his hands on the beloved Pixar classic "Up," and it might look like something like this funny spoof trailer: replete with explosions, loud noise, epic-sized battles and plenty of lens flare. Also, apparently, a Linkin Park soundtrack. Behold below. (And check out trailers of "Mary Poppins" as a horror movie, and "The Shining" as a romantic comedy.) »

Ten Best: Live-action/Animation Movies

15 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ari Folman, visionary director of Waltz With Bashir, brings us a journey beyond imagination in his upcoming movie The Congress. Robin Wright (pictured above) plays a version of herself in this thought-provoking film, which merges live-action and colourful animation. To celebrate the release of The Congress today (our review is here), we take a look at some other movies which have embraced a live-action/animation mash-up.

1) Mary Poppins

Family favourite Mary Poppins delighted audiences when it first burst onto screens in 1964, and now 50 years later the magical tale continues to enchant a brand new generation of film fans. The hit adventure’s wonderful mix of live-action and fantasy animation was surely one of the elements which won it five Oscars at the 1965 Academy Awards, including Best Visual Effects.

2) Ted

Boston car hire salesman John’s (Mark Wahlberg) friendship with his best buddy Ted is so realistic that it is sometimes »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – August 11th 2014

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

The good news is that now that all the singing and the farting around is done in Hobbiton and the story has kicked in good and proper, the majority of this second in Peter Jackson’s portrayal of a slim Tolkien story overblown to epic proportions is mostly action with a minimum of plot. It’s still got various story beats it has to hit of course and is very much a middle chapter, but this has a momentum which was really missing from An Unexpected Journey.

In this second Hobbit film you can start to see the stuff that was added in to pad out the two films into a trilogy with characters who do not appear in the books introduced and a weird elf/dwarf romance along with a more angsty and badass Legolas, strangely enough it doesn’t feel out-of-place.

See Mad Men's Christina Hendricks Deal with the Hassles of a Modern Office

8 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Modern Office with Christina Hendricks from Funny Or Die How much have offices changed since the 1960s? As this new video from Funny or Die points out, quite a bit. Desktops have replaced typewriters, and sad desk salads have replaced martini lunches - it's no wonder that Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, playing a fair-use version of her character Joan Holloway, seems so out of place. But, just like Kristen Bell's Mary Poppins, it turns out there's a message to this mashup. As Hendricks explains, women today still struggle with a gender pay gap; they make up 70 percent of all minimum-wage workers, »

Emma Thompson is a crotchety hoot as Pl Travers, the reclusive author who gave Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) a tough time in bringing her most precious creation - Mary Poppins - to the big screen. After refusing to give up the rights for 20 years, Mrs Travers finally comes to Hollywood on the understanding that she will have approval over any adaptation. No singing. »

Disney Classics Getting Blu-Ray Release August 12th – Tarzan, Hercules, And More

6 August 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

A slew of classic Disney movies are hitting for the first time on Blu-Ray, including one double-pack release, and you’re going to want to make sure to pick these up. You haven’t paid attention to some of these titles for a while, and it’s about time you got the chance to catch them on Blu-Ray. The best part is that there’s a great mix of releases hitting. Bedknobs and Broomsticks is all but lost in the cultural consciousness, and it deserves a return. The Academy Award-winning movie from the year I was born is filled with a lot of fun and adventure, and like most Disney films, holds up well for a whole new generation.

The rest of the group covers a great spectrum, including two animated “big” titles, and a 10th Anniversary release. There’s a lot to expose your family to here, so check out all the info below, »

Amanda’s Adaptations: Mary Poppins – Book Vs Film

1 August 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Discovering a copy of Mary Poppins by Pl Travers at a charity book sale sparked my attention largely thanks to Saving Mr Banks. Seeing the film and the battle that had taken place between the author and Walt Disney made me intrigued to see just how different the two manifestations really were – and what I discovered was surprising, even given what I already knew.

As fans of the film will know, the Disney version of Mary Poppins is ‘practically perfect in every way’. It’s a fun adventure, magical, bright and colourful and full of cheery song and dance numbers and talking animals. Mary Poppins is endearing and forthright and – thanks to Julie Andrews – someone you just wanted to follow into whatever adventure she might have in mind next.

The book is something entirely different. For one thing, Mary is not really very nice at all. She’s magical and »

Towie finale recap: "She sent him nudie snaps and I've seen them"

31 July 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It was the Towie finale last night (July 30), and there were surprisingly fewer fireworks and more smooching than we could have ever predicted. Lydia and Arg got it on, Elliott and Chloe are still very much on it, and even Dan and Bobby got swept up with it for an unexpected passionate snog.

For those who missed it, pull up a pew and be prepared for a roller-coaster ride (literally) with our episode recap below:

Towie kicks off with a shirtless shot of James Lock lifting two very heavy tyres.

Why not, eh?

Arg is channelling Alan from The Hangover crossed with Mary Poppins - his words - as he bonds with Billie's baby Nelly. He contemplates names for his own children, and toys with Tum Tum as he's certain he'll spawn "a chubster". He also reveals that he's going to try and win Lydia back and asks Nelly for her advice, »

Bones First Look: Orange Is the New Booth!

25 July 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hats off to Bones! How many shows can have you literally shimmying in your seat with a preview for their 10th season? None, we tell you. Ok, maybe a few. But still, this new season-10 trailer for Bones, just shown at Comic-Con, is on point. And fans now know there will be plenty to look forward to in what may or may not be the show's final season: Lots of action, an array of hot/adorable Booth and Bones kisses, girlfights galore and David Boreanaz channeling what appears to be Dick Van Dyke's character Bert from Mary Poppins, complete with one-man-band apparatus. (Does David do kids' parties? Want.) Click the video above! Of course, we can't forget that season 10 will start off with Booth in »

Kristen Bell Dresses Up As Mary Poppins, Addresses Her Minimum-Wage Status In Funny Or Die Parody

24 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Kristen Bell plays Mary Poppins in a new Funny or Die skit that has the iconic Disney nanny singing a revised version of "A Spoonful of Sugar" about her minimum wage pay.

Kristen Bell Plays Mary Poppins

Bell, closely resembling Julie Andrews in the 1964 feature film, tells Jane and Michael Banks that she’s quitting the nanny business because, as her tape measurer points out, “Mary Poppins Practically Perfect In Every Way Except Grossly Underpaid. “But you’ve got magical powers,” the kids protest, to which she replies, “You’d think that would entitle me to more than $7.25 an hour.

“Please don’t leave this choice position,” sings Jane, “We will die of malnutrition.”

After telling her ward not to be so dramatic, Mary Poppins launches into her song, singing, "In every job that must be done, you must be paid in more than fun.” Replacing “a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, »

Mary Poppins Quits with Kristen Bell from Funny Or Die Apparently, a spoonful of sugar helps the message go down. That's what Kristen Bell and Funny or Die are hoping at least, with their new Mary Poppins parody about the minimum wage. In the spoof, the Frozen star dresses up as Julie Andrews to sing a little ditty in support of raising the federal minimum wage. "In every job that must be done, you must be paid in more than fun," Bell says. At the current level of $7.25, many domestic workers like Poppins are living below the poverty line, but »
