What Should Nashville Do About Hayden Panettiere’s Real Life Pregnancy?

24 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Ah, Nashville. We watch you for the great music and Connie Britton‘s luminescent skin, but we continue to tune in to see how you’ll one-up yourself in terms of ridiculous plot lines. Seriously, what can you possibly add to a nighttime soap opera that’s already featured a country star in a coma, a fake miscarriage made more convincing with pig’s blood, and a murder-suicide carried out in order to prevent a sex tape from leaking? The only two possible answers here are a) a pregnancy of dubious paternity or b) the arrival of a heretofore unacknowledged evil twin.

Lucky for us, Hayden Panettiere is pregnant in real life, and her character, Juliette Barnes, had some drunk sex with evil Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson), the nasty record label exec who is most definitely not her boyfriend — how could she cheat on Avery (Jonathan Jackson)??? He became so likable! »

Alison Owen, Debra Hayward Launch Monumental Pictures To Produce Films & TV

24 September 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Prolific UK-based producers Alison Owen and Debra Hayward have joined forces to launch Monumental Pictures. The new production outfit will focus on both film and TV content with the aim to “keep the costs small, but the vision big,” says Saving Mr Banks producer Owen. Long-time friends and colleagues, the pair last shared a credit on 1998’s Oscar-winning Elizabeth, but Owen says they’ve been chasing the same material for so long, “we’re both exhausted from competing with each other. Ultimately, I could see the only way to beat Debra was to join her.”

Owen’s most recent credits include last year’s Mary Poppins origin story Saving Mr Banks, produced through her Ruby Films shingle which will now transition to become Monumental. She also exec produced current release The Giver. Previous titles she’s produced include Jane Eyre, The Other Boleyn Girl and multiple Emmy-winner Temple Grandin. She »

Fiddler on the Roof is 50

22 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Fifty years ago today, Fiddler on the Roof opened on Broadway and was an instant success with audiences and also won 9 Tony Awards including the big kahuna Best Musical. It would become the longest running musical in Broadway history until it was surpassed by that crop of 80s mega-musicals from Britain. The musical has been performed countless times since in stage productions all over the world and four revivals on Broadway (76, 81, 90, 04). 

Best Actor nominee Topol in "Fiddler on the Roof" (1971)

By 1971 there was a movie adaptation that was nominated for 8 Oscars including Best Picture and I don't believe we've ever discussed it. That ain't right. I've been thinking about 60s and 70s musicals a lot recently due to that book "Roadshow!" and while the movie studios were definitely overinvested in the genre after the gargantuan back-to-back mega hits that were Mary Poppins and Sound of Music occassionally a hit would »

Idris Elba: Nicolas Cage Once Spent the Night in Dracula's Castle

22 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Idris Elba's Reddit Ama provided a few key facts about Elba's career. He would totally play James Bond, and he loves Mary Poppins, but perhaps most importantly, it added a crucial detail to the ever-expanding web that is The Nicolas Cage Mythos. Elba talked about an odd incident that occurred while the two were shooting Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance together in Romania in 2010. In Elba's own words: "… Nic Cage came back one day on set … and he looked a little bit tired, a little bit - kind of like he'd been up all night. So I was like, »

‘Doctor Who: 8×05 – Time Heist’ Review

20 September 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

There always has to be those throw away episodes in a television show, where the episode has no real importance to the overall continuity but just works as a filler.  Time Heist arguably signposted that it would be one of these episodes and to be fair has done little to dissuade me from changing my mind.  The worrying thing about the teasers for the episode were that they raised the simple question, can Doctor Who characters really do a heist episode?

When The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) wake up in a strange room with a shape-shifter and cyber-augmented gamer their situation soon becomes even more confused by a message from the mysterious Architect.  With a challenge to break into the most dangerous and secure bank in the Universe, can they refuse (or do they even have that choice)?

Last week I picked up on something that Doctor Who »

The Best Answers From Idris Elba’s Reddit Ama

20 September 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Idris Elba is known for many roles: Taraji P. Henson's creepy stalker, Stringer Bell from the greatest show of our time, and soon, the voice of Shere Khan in Jon Favreau's Jungle Book, but until recently, we were unaware that he was a big fan of Mary Poppins. His Friday Reddit Ama changed that! Here are some other things we learned: Elba would totally be the next James Bond, does Muay Thai to stay fit, loves The Champ, and wants to work with Christopher Nolan. Read below for the highlights where he talks about when we might be seeing Luther again, reconfirms a story about Nicholas Cage's obsession with vampires, and uses lots of adorable British spellings. You can imagine him reading this to you in any accent that pleases you.His favorite Disney movie is The Jungle Book, which is good because he's going to be voicing Shere Khan. »

Classic Disney Movie Musical Remix - "The Trouble" by Pogo

19 September 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Pogo is back with another fun music video movie remix. In his latest creation he uses several classic animated and live-action Disney films such as Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid. It's amazing to hear what this guy comes up with in his videos. I don't know how he does it, but it seems like it would be a lot of tedious work. You can check out several other videos we've posted from Pogo here. Enjoy!

Miss Ohio is no dummy. But her performance partner, Roxy? That's an entirely different story. Roxy is a boisterous, Dolly Parton look-alike doll that contestant Mackenzie Bart will use to showcase her ventriloquism talent in Sunday's Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Frozen's Anna and Elsa to Get Their Own Disney World Attraction

Snow White has hers, Alice in Wonderland has hers (in fact, two in California's Disneyland alone), while poor Mary Poppins is still waiting for hers - their own rides in the Disney theme-park empire. And now, Anna and Elsa, the empowered animated heroines of the company's Oscar-winning box-office phenomenon, 2013's Frozen, are about to join that exclusive club.

Listen To Pee-Wee Herman As The Voice Of Roger Rabbit

11 September 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In 1983, the Walt Disney Company embarked on a film that would push the boundaries of animation and live-action collaboration to an extent that had never been seen before. While it was a post Gene Kelly/Jerry Mouse world, the animators behind Who Framed Roger Rabbit wanted to do better than just showcase a limited song-and-dance number. They'd already blazed that trail with Mary Poppins several years before. That sort of retread just wouldn't cut it. That much is clear in the long lost special Backstage At Disney, which aired on The Disney Channel, and has been partially resurrected in the above YouTube edit (acquired by Yahoo Movies). In this video, we see a lot of early concept work being done on the Disney adaptation of Who Censored Roger Rabbit, which was changed to Who Framed Roger Rabbit when Disney started work on the film.

16 hidden treats found waiting for you in movie credits

11 September 2014 1:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some films keep entertaining us even as the final credits roll. Here are some hidden treats at the end of 16 movies...

We've talked in the past about the current trend for stings at the end of movie credits - we once put together a list of 50 of our favourites. But that's not what this article is about. Instead, inspired by a quite wonderful scene midway through the credits of The Boxtrolls, we've been hunting around for extra goodies that you may have missed in other films. Some of these are just lines of text, others are far more substantial. But also, none of them are new or extended scenes - at least in the strictest sense.

There are inevitable spoilers for one or two things ahead, but we've tried to keep the headers as spoiler-free as possible so you can skip to the next entry if you want to. Let's start with The Boxtrolls, »

Musicals at the Oscars

10 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The Academy has a long and complex relationship with musicals, particularly with their ability to secure best picture nominations. The best picture nomination for Les Miserables (2012) at the 85th Academy Awards marked the first time since Chicago’s (2002) nomination and win that a musical was nominated in that category, and as of this moment, there aren’t many options that could break into the category this year.

Since premiering at Toronto, The Last 5 Years — the film adaption of the off-broadway musical written by Jason Robert Brown — has been receiving decent reviews but nothing that would propel it to best picture status. The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney said both Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan bring “confidence and depth of feeling” to their songs and “shift back and forth between rom-com breeziness and full-blown passion, be it the soaring highs or the heartsick lows” with ease, »

Craig Johnson’s Top Ten Films of All Time List

7 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Have you ever wondered what are the films that inspire the next generation of visionary filmmakers? As part of our monthly Ioncinephile profile (read this September), we ask the filmmaker the incredibly arduous task of identifying their top ten list of favorite films. Craig Johnson (who sees his The Skeleton Twins receive its theatrical release on September 12th) put together this top 10 (as of September 2014).

Carrie - Brian De Palma (1976)

“Freaky, funny, arty, beautiful, … and fucking scary. Sissy Spacek breaks your heart. And that seventies split screen action? Badass. This movie delivers on all levels at all times.”

ElectionAlexander Payne (1999)

“Every moment of this movie rings true. Painfully funny, painfully smart and so perfectly constructed. My sister and I quote it whenever we see each other. Might be a perfect film.”

The GraduateMike Nichols (1967)

“The look on Mrs. Robinson’s face when Benjamin leaves her in the hallway. »
