Dick Van Dyke Remembers That Sexy S&M-Themed Photo With Mary Tyler Moore—Watch!

18 December 2014 3:55 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mary Poppins star Dick Van Dyke jokes that there is one photo that will haunt him for the rest of his life: A sexy S&M-themed picture from 1995, which features him and former TV co-star, Mary Tyler Moore. The photo shows the two wearing leather, with the actress wielding a riding crop and bending over the actor, who is on his knees. He even has a tattoo on his arm that depicts a heart pierced by a sword and the word "Mary." It was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair's December 1995 issue, which celebrated cast reunions. Van Dyke, who turned 89 on Dec. 13, and Moore, who is 77, played husband and wife on the '60s comedy series The Dick Van Dyke »

Andrew Lloyd Webber Will Bring ‘School of Rock’ Musical To Broadway

18 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Cuba-u.S. detente has nothing on the hotly competitive Shubert and Nederlander organizations. Broadway’s two biggest landlords are suddenly looking like Bff’s as co-producers on hoped-for blockbuster shows (not for the first time, it should be noted; in 1981 they famously co-produced The Life And Adventures Of Nicholas Nickleby, among others. But still…).

They’re teaming with Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group and the Warner Music Group for the world premier of a new musical based on the 2003 Jack Black career-making comedy from Paramount. Currently, Shubert and Nederlander are co-producing the Sro Bradley Cooper-starring revival of The Elephant Man (at the Shubert-owned Booth Theatre).

Plans call for School Of Rock to cold-open on Broadway — no out-of-town tryout – at the Shuberts’ Winter Garden Theatre (following the limited run of the Royal Shakespeare Company production of Wolf Hall, Parts 1 & 2, which begins a 15-week stand on March 20). Previews are to begin Monday, »

Behind the Scenes With John Stamos on ABC's Daring Musical Comedy 'Galavant'

17 December 2014 4:57 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et was with John Stamos as he suited up to guest star on ABC's upcoming musical comedy Galavant.

"They finally figured it out -- keep me in a strait jacket and I'll be fine," Stamos joked in his suit of armor costume.

News: John Stamos Was Sick of Being Uncle Jesse

The series is part fairytale, part Broadway musical that follows a dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), who loses the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson) and must take revenge to restore his "happily ever after." Stamos guest stars as Galavant's rival, Sir Jean Hamm.

As is the case with most fairytales brought to screen, the roles required the actors to break out their best English accents.

"I ended up somewhere between Richard Burton and Dick Van Dyke and Mary Poppins," said Stamos. "That was a challenge and I loved all the physical stuff. In this scene »

'Willy Wonka,' 'Ferris Bueller' & More Added to National Film Registry

17 December 2014 8:56 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For over 20 years now The Library of Congress has chosen a select group of films to be preserved in the National Film Registry, and this year's titles have just been revealed. Last year's additions included Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, Disney's Mary Poppins and Michael Moore's Roger & Me. Now 25 more films will be preserved under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act as they have been deemed "a crucial element of American creativity, culture and history" and represent "the extraordinary diversity of America’s film heritage and the disparate strands making it so vibrant." So what made the cut? Variety reports this year's additions include Steven Spielberg's war drama Saving Private Ryan, easily one of the filmmaker's best, Roman Polanski's iconic horror film Rosemary's Baby and John Hughes' comedic classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off. In addition, the musical adaptation Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder, »

16 December 2014 11:20 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Justin & Jimmy - together again! Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon shared another sketch as kids at summer camp at Camp Winnipesaukee. This time it's 1997 and they sing "Jumper" from Third Eye Blind. They sang "Only Wanna Be With You" and "Africa" in previous camp videos. Best friends forever!

Justin wasn't even a guest on "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday. Instead, Nicki Minaj and Christoph Waltz were on the show. Nicki compared yearbook photos with Jimmy, and admitted - before she was a rapper - she used to be a bad office manager and she was a rude waitress in New York. She told the audience she probably served a »

John Lee Hancock in Talks to Tell the Story Behind the McDonald’s Expansion with The Founder; Tom Hanks and Michael Keaton Eyed to Star

10 December 2014 5:10 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker John Lee Hancock most recently helmed a film about the true story behind the making of Mary Poppins, and now he’s setting his sights on the creation of a fast food empire.  THR reports that the Saving Mr. Banks director is in talks to helm The Founder for FilmNation and the Combine, which will tell the story of how salesman Ray Kroc acquired the McDonald’s restaurant and turned it into a billion dollar empire.  An inspiring rags-to-riches story this is not, as Kroc stumbled upon a small burger operation run efficiently by brothers Mac and Dick McDonald in Southern California, then maneuvered himself to a position from which he was able to pull the company away from the brothers and enjoy the profits.  More after the jump. Per THR, The Founder has a screenplay by Big Fan and The Wrestler scribe Robert Siegel and is described as »

'Peter Pan' and 6 Other Beloved Disney Movies Based On Dark, Horrifying Books

2 December 2014 3:16 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

With the live, musical stage production of Peter Pan airing on NBC on Thursday, and the recent release of the trailer for the upcoming adventure drama Pan – a re-imagined live-action version of J.M. Barrie's classic tale – it seems that America is once again experiencing full-blown Peter Pandemonium.

And why not? It's fun for the whole family, right? On the surface, Peter Pan is about a young boy leading his friends on the adventure of a lifetime. Like most children's stories, it's a cherished morality tale that teaches kids a lesson while keeping them entertained.

And, like most beloved children's stories, the familiar tale of Peter Pan is based on a book full of horrible murder and deeply traumatizing acts of depravity. Seriously, children's stories are messed up. To show you what we mean, here are seven beloved (Disney-adapted) tales of fun and adventure that are based »

"Jingle Bells" Sung by New and Classic Disney Movies - Mashup

1 December 2014 6:27 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It’s the Christmas season, and you have no doubt been bombarded by holiday music if you listen to the radio or did any Christmas shopping over the Thanksgiving weekend. Disney Movies Anywhere would like to further help you get into the Christmas spirit with this short video that uses clips from Disney animated and live-action movies to create a mashup rendition of “Jingle Bells.” Classic and new films alike were used, from the beloved 1964 film Mary Poppins to 2013’s Saving Mr. Banks, which was about the tumultuous road Walt Disney had to take to secure the rights to make Mary Poppins, and from Sleeping Beauty to Snow Dogs, which was a movie about the tumultuous road Cuba Gooding Jr.'s career took after prematurely winning an Oscar, or it was about dog sledding or whatever.

‘Paddington': Potential Game-Changer For Studiocanal; Euro Major Bares Ambition

28 November 2014 7:59 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Darkest Peru may seem an unlikely place to find the inspiration to become a global player. For Studiocanal, however, the jungles of the Latin American country may just have led them to a game-changer in the guise of a lovable bear called Paddington.

Based on Brit author Michael Bond’s much-loved series of books, Paddington the film is, by some margin, Studiocanal’s most ambitious project ever. (See trailer below.) In addition to cementing its position as Europe’s leading film company, Paddington represents a strategic entry into the family space for Studiocanal, which hopes it will consolidate efforts to be the leading provider of studio-quality product to the global marketplace.

Arguably, it also marks the most concerted attempt by a European independent company to launch an international multi-quadrant franchise outside of the studio system. Quite an achievement for a film about a homeless bear, who loves marmalade.

Paddington’s budget of $55M, »

Paddington review: A delightfully British gem

27 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Paul King; Screenwriter: Paul King; Starring: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Nicole Kidman, Peter Capaldi; Running time: 95 mins; Certificate: PG

With the scars of this year's childhood-decimating Postman Pat: The Movie still fresh, you'd be forgiven for approaching this reimagined live action Paddington with some measure of trepidation.

After some inadvertently atmospheric early marketing spawned the unfortunate 'Creepy Paddington' meme, and more recently the BBFC slapped the film with a PG rating for mild sex references and bad language, there was all the more reason to wonder whether producer David Heyman and writer-director Paul King would obey the famous edict to "please look after this bear".

Mercifully, we needn't have worried. Britain's favourite duffel coat-clad bear is in thoroughly safe hands here, King unfurling his sprightly festive adventure with an arresting blend of thrills, spills and sharp comedy. Ben Whishaw, cannily recast in the lead voice role after the departure of Colin Firth, »

‘Redrum: The Unauthorized Musical Parody of The Shining’ to Hit the Stage Next Fall

21 November 2014 10:09 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Though it’s packed with unnerving moments from start to finish, viewers of The Shining may remember the ghost of Delbert Grady telling Jack Torrance that he must “correct” his wife and child as a particularly creepy scene, and next year fans of the film can see Delbert’s suggestion mixed with dancing and humor onstage in a musical theater parody of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic.

If you enjoyed Stephen King’s 1977 novel, The Shining, have watched Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film adaptation of the same name multiple times, or enjoyed watching horror and humor melded in a live show like Evil Dead The Musical, then you may want to check out the upcoming Redrum: The Unauthorized Musical Parody of The Shining. Set to hit the stage sometime next fall, the musical parody made an onstage sneak peek performance on Wednesday night.

Film Review: ‘Paddington’

19 November 2014 11:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“No bears were harmed in the making of this film,” boast the closing credits of “Paddington” — and happily, that promise extends to Michael Bond’s ursine literary creation. 56 years after first appearing in print, the accident-prone Peruvian furball is brought to high-tech but thoroughly endearing life in this bright, breezy and oh-so-British family romp from writer-director Paul King and super-producer David Heyman. Affectionately honoring the everyday quirks of Bond’s stories, while subtly updating their middle-class London milieu, King’s film may divide loyal Paddingtophiles with its high-stakes caper plot, but their enraptured kids won’t care a whit. If Paddington’s signature line — “I think I’m in trouble again” — is absent from his feature-length debut, that’s because even the fretful bear should feel bullish about its prospects.

With “Paddington” out in Blighty on Nov. 28, roaring domestic holiday biz is a given, though whether TWC-Dimension can sell U. »

Kristen Bell Sings the Most Tech-Savvy Holiday Jam: 'Text Me Merry Christmas'

17 November 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's not exactly a Mariah Carey "All I Want for Christmas Is You," but Kristen Bell's new holiday tune is going viral and is sure to make you "Lol."

The Frozen actress and a capella group Straight No Chaser have joined forces for "Text Me Merry Christmas," which makes getting a good old SMS into a delightful Christmas carol.

The song is just as silly as it is catchy.

News: Kristen Bell Plays Mary Poppins

Bell, 34, starts the song by texting someone from far away and sings, "So please remember this December to fully charge your phone."

Sounding just as beautiful as her character Anna in Frozen, Bell belts, "Just a word or two of text from you will remind me you're still there. You don't have to add much to it. One smiley face will do."
