The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Reboot In The Works At Fox

20 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Alan Moore will be delighted! After one disastrous movie and a TV series attempt back in 2013, Fox is having another crack at the notoriously grouchy writer's The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen. According to Variety (confirming a report from The Tracking Board), the studio is planning another big-screen outing for Allan Quatermain, Mina Harker, Dr. Jekyll and the rest of the motley crew of Victorian-era literary icons. There are three full volumes of The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen and several accompanying miniseries too, so Fox will have plenty to mine from. The later stories saw the introduction of characters as diverse as Sherlock Holmes, Mary Poppins, and even a demonic incarnation of Harry Potter. John Davis is producing through his Davis Entertainment banner, with Ira Napoliello and Matt Reilly overseeing production of the reboot. »

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Dannielynn Birkhead Is All Grown Up at the Kentucky Derby -- See Who Else Is There!

2 May 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Anna Nicole Smith's daughter Dannielynn Birkhead is the spitting image of her model mama. The 8-year-old beauty stepped out at 141st Kentucky Derby on Saturday with her father Larry Birkhead. She looked beautiful in a pale pink floral dress, which she paired with a matching flower headpiece, a bedazzled silver purse and a sweet smile. Her proud papa looked dapper in a pink jacket and white pants. We've all watched Danny grow up in the public eye, but besides an appearance at "The Smurfs 2" premiere in 2013 and a rare appearance on "Today" later that year, the Derby is the one event where we get to see her on a regular basis. Larry has attended with his daughter every year since 2011 -- and once even dressed up as Mary Poppins and Bert for the event. See that photo in the gallery above!

Take Two: 'Magic School Bus' never really left my memory

23 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly series in which writers revisit for the first time in ages their youthful passions and reconsider how well they hold up with the passage of time. Growing up, I didn’t have cable. Friends my age, fellow 20-somethings raised on ’90s and turn-of-the-millennium entertainment, reminisce about Nickelodeon and Disney Channel shows. “Hey Arnold!” and “Even Stevens” were never part of my childhood. Sometimes I feel like I missed out, but not when I fondly remember how PBS ruled my toddler and early elementary school days. My small screen delights were “Sesame Street” (of course), “Wishbone,” “Arthur” and — my favorite — “The Magic School Bus.” It’s no surprise “Magic School Bus” captivated my imagination. As the dorky kid who always actually liked school and also as an early-on fan of sci-fi and fantasy, I was enthralled by the adventures of Ms. Frizzle’s class and their (literally) out-of-this-world field »

Take Two: Do I Still Hate Ferris Bueller?

16 April 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly series in which writers revisit for the first time in ages their youthful passions and reconsider how well they hold up with the passage of time. When “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: was released in 1986, I was 17 years old ( a surly, difficult 17 years old); which is to say,I was the exact same age as the character Ferris Bueller; which is to say, the worst possible age to enjoy a film about him. To this put in some context, growing up in the late 1970’s and early 80’s was a glorious time to be a very young movie-goer.  Comedies in particular – were at their most bawdy and anarchic, which is exactly what a 10 year old boy wants. We were allowed to see on the screen in those days all sorts things that it is now horrifying to imagine a 10 year old was allowed to see; but as a 10 year old, »

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: The Awkward Turns Up to Ten on 'Disney Week'

14 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Welcome back, dance fans! The typically awkward "Dancing with the Stars" returns with extra special doses of awkward this week, as everyone's nervously excited about Disney Week. They're dancing with cartoon characters and going totally overboard with magical make-up and impressions, but it's all lots of fun. Besides Tom's Eeyore, I especially love Riker's Captain Jack Sparrow. He's become my favorite competitor this season anyway.

I'm glad the pandering and shameless self-promotion isn't quite as heavy-handed as last season, but there's still plenty of it. But at least we know the music is really good, as the couples dance to some of our favorite songs. Many of the couples are having a rough night though, and at this mid-point in the competition (can you believe already), the top competitors are starting to separate from the pack.

Let's get into my top dances:

Dancing With the Stars Week 5 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

13 April 2015 7:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Have you ever wanted to see The Bachelor‘s Chris Soules dressed in a toga? How about Rumer Willis in purple face paint? Or Mark Ballas with the face of a bunny rabbit?

Well, even if none of those experiences were on your TV bucket list (and if they were, I have a lot of questions), Dancing With the Stars delivered them on Monday, as the remaining contestants took the stage for Disney Night.

And even though a fairytale ending was in store for Season 20’s strongest couples, one unlucky pair did not ride — er, sashay — into the sunset.

Dancing With The Stars 20 Eliminated Suzanne Somers & Tony Dovolani Tonight,April 13th

Tonight's elimination/performances show, kicked off with them revealing that it was a Disney themed night, and they showed an opening number with the dance pros. Then Suzanne Somers & Tony Dovolani started off the performances with a Lady and the Tramp Jazz routine that landed them a mediocre 28 out of 40 score from the judges. Robert Herjavec & Kym Johnson danced a Mary Poppins Quickstep for a very bad 24 score as Rob's footwork was way off. Patti Labelle & Artem Chigvintsev performed a Pinocchio Waltz number for a 27 score. Willow Shields & Mark Ballas performed an Alice in Wonderland Foxtrot for a nice 34 score.

Riker Lynch & Allison Holker performed a nice Pirates Paso Doble and landed a great 38 score. Rumer Willis & Val Chmerkovskiy came very correct with a Little »

Ryan Reynolds Shares ‘Deadpool’ Fan-Made Movie Poster

Ryan Reynolds has stepped into one of the most rabid fan bases in all of pop culture with his upcoming take on Marvel’s Deadpool, but he’s proven he has a solid grasp on the sillier side of the character, as evidenced by his recreation of Burt Reynolds‘ classic eye-candy poster. He appears to have embraced the fandom as well, taking a moment on Sunday evening to share a fan-made movie poster for the “Deadpool” film. The poster looks like an homage to both “Mary Poppins” and “Spider-Man,” with a tag-line riffing on Peter Parker’s mantra. “With great power comes great irresponsibility, »

9 Things You Learn About Charlie Sheen From Reading Jon Cryer’s Memoir

7 April 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

According to his co-star Jon Cryer, Charlie Sheen comported himself like a professional when he came on set during the first few seasons of Two and a Half Men: He was on time and always hit his marks despite partying all night. That feeling of respect would quickly deteriorate. In his memoir, So That Happened, published April 7, Cryer watches as Sheen eventually devolved into the publicly disgraced menace we know him as. The book isn't a damning account, by any means (especially considering what Sheen has actually done), but Cryer relays some strange anecdotes ranging from the slightly endearing (Sheen was nervous at table-reads) to the more disturbing (he was watching Mary Poppins on Broadway the night he locked a naked escort in the closet at the Plaza Hotel). Here are the weirdest and Charlie Sheen–iest moments from Jon Cryer's book:1. Cryer got to meet porn star Ginger Lynn because of Sheen. »

16 March 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast adds two more to the cast. And they are biggies!

News: 7 Reasons Why Emma Watson Is Perfect as Belle in 'Beauty and the Beast'

On Monday, Disney announced that Emma Thompson will join the cast as Mrs. Potts, most famously voiced by Angela Lansbury in the Oscar-nominated, animated version. The actress is no stranger to the world of Disney, as she played Mary Poppins author and creator P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks.

Also adding Oscar pedigree to the cast is Kevin Kline, who will star as Belle’s father, Maurice.

The two stars join a growing cast, including Emma Watson as Belle, Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as the beast, with Luke Evans and Josh Gad playing Gaston and his sidekick Lefou, respectively.

Mr. Belvedere Turns 30, but He May Be Even Older Than You Think

On March 15, 1985, ABC debuted Mr. Belvedere at 8:30 p.m. as a midseason replacement airing immediately after that other show about a wise-cracking butler, Benson. The show centered on a proper British butler (Christopher Hewett) adjusting to life working for the Owens family of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. And for six seasons, characters on the show and the people watching them chose not to think too much about how strange it was that a middle-class family would have a live-in butler. The show hit that family-comedy sweet spot right along with Family Ties, Growing Pains, Full House and The Cosby Show, »

Interview: Julie Andrews on the 50th anniversary of 'The Sound of Music'

13 March 2015 12:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Sound of Music" is not just a wonderful film; it's perhaps the single most timeless Hollywood musical with the most uniformly beloved songlist in film history. Julie Andrews' performance as the nurturing, free-spirited Maria Von Trapp was an instant sensation, a legendary portrayal that helped "The Sound of Music" unseat "Gone with the Wind" as the highest grossing film to date. If the charming hooks of "Do-Re-Mi" and "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" aren't sumptuous enough, the movie's sonic splendor deepens with the classic anthem "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" and the adorable, yet incredibly moving "So Long, Farewell." At every turn in Robert Wise's classic there is another tune, performance, or charismatic bit of Von Trapp choreography to renew our faith in the power of the Hollywood musical.  In honor of the movie's 50th anniversary and new re-release on Blu-ray and Digital HD, we had the unspeakable honor of »

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »
