My Fair Lady is back in Cineplex theatres as part of our Classic Film Series

My Fair Lady is back in Cineplex theatres as part of our Classic Film SeriesMy Fair Lady is back in Cineplex theatres as part of our Classic Film SeriesIngrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine10/11/2017 1:20:00 Pm

By 1964, Hollywood’s Golden Age was coming to an end. The studio system was collapsing and counterculture pics such as Dr. Strangelove and The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night were attracting younger audiences. However, Hollywood could still count on musicals to draw crowds, especially those based on Broadway hits.

My Fair Lady was a smashing success on stage, which is why Warner Bros. paid an unheard of $5-million for the film rights. The story, based on George Bernard Shaw’s play "Pygmalion", finds arrogant professor of phonetics Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) wagering that he can train cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) to speak and act like a lady. Under his sometime cruel tutelage, »

The Nine Lives of Cat Stevens: Yusuf Islam Embraces His Musical Past on The Laughing Apple

21 September 2017 2:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s not quite fair to call The Laughing Apple a comeback album. Since 2006, the artist who beguiled listeners in the ’70s as the spiritually curious Cat Stevens has released three discs under the mononym Yusuf—short for Yusuf Islam, his chosen moniker after adopting the Islamic faith in 1977. These works were his first foray into Western music after shunning the industry in the wake of his religious conversion, during which time he sold his guitars and focused instead on charity work and theological study. Fans were grateful for any new output following the decades of silence, but Yusuf’s »

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’

18 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As if the original “Kingsman” weren’t cartoony enough, with its blade-legged lady assassin and gratuitous exploding-heads finale, the sequel has gone and pushed the franchise’s cheeky brand of absurdity even farther. The goofiness begins with the resurrection of two important characters, whose unequivocal deaths we witnessed in the first movie. First, there’s Charlie, a rival secret-service recruit played by Edward Holcroft, who lost his head in that notorious fireworks montage, now back with a bionic arm and a new boss (more on that in a minute). And then there’s Colin Firth’s character, impeccably dressed spy-master Harry Hart, who took a point-blank bullet to the eye — and here lives to tell about it.

Firth was the second-best thing about the 2015 scally-spy movie, a super-stylized surprise hit from “Kick-Ass” director Matthew Vaughn that racked up a cool $414 million worldwide, and Harry Hart’s death was a loss. But »

'Love, Cecil': Film Review | Telluride 2017

5 September 2017 9:48 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Most younger audience members probably would draw a blank at the name Cecil Beaton, but he was a major figure in the arts for almost 60 years. Love, Cecil, one of the most engaging documentaries shown at this year’s Telluride Film Festival, should help to restore a bit of his reputation. 

Director Lisa Immordino Vreeland made earlier docs about fashion maven Diana Vreeland (her husband’s grandmother) and art collector Peggy Guggenheim, so she’s revisiting comfortable terrain here and trains an affectionate but unsentimental eye on Beaton. He is probably best known for designing Oscar-winning films Gigi and My Fair Lady, »

The 25 Best One-Season Television Shows of the Last 25 Years

15 August 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the age of peak TV, we’ve gotten to see many series which are constructed to be satisfying after just one season of storytelling. But it’s important to remember that this is a relatively new phenomenon, that all too often, potentially great shows will get cancelled before getting the chance to reach their full potential.

From Mad Method Actor to Humankind Advocate: One of the Greatest Film Actors of the 20th Century

28 July 2017 1:01 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Updated: Following a couple of Julie London Westerns*, Turner Classic Movies will return to its July 2017 Star of the Month presentations. On July 27, Ronald Colman can be seen in five films from his later years: A Double Life, Random Harvest (1942), The Talk of the Town (1942), The Late George Apley (1947), and The Story of Mankind (1957). The first three titles are among the most important in Colman's long film career. George Cukor's A Double Life earned him his one and only Best Actor Oscar; Mervyn LeRoy's Random Harvest earned him his second Best Actor Oscar nomination; George Stevens' The Talk of the Town was shortlisted for seven Oscars, including Best Picture. All three feature Ronald Colman at his very best. The early 21st century motto of international trendsetters, from Venezuela's Nicolás Maduro and Turkey's Recep Erdogan to Russia's Vladimir Putin and the United States' Donald Trump, seems to be, The world is reality TV and reality TV »

More 4th of July Escapism: Small-Town Iowa and Declaration of Independence Musicals

4 July 2017 11:58 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

(See previous post: Fourth of July Movies: Escapism During a Weird Year.) On the evening of the Fourth of July, besides fireworks, fire hazards, and Yankee Doodle Dandy, if you're watching TCM in the U.S. and Canada, there's the following: Peter H. Hunt's 1776 (1972), a largely forgotten film musical based on the Broadway hit with music by Sherman Edwards. William Daniels, who was recently on TCM talking about 1776 and a couple of other movies (A Thousand Clowns, Dodsworth), has one of the key roles as John Adams. Howard Da Silva, blacklisted for over a decade after being named a communist during the House Un-American Committee hearings of the early 1950s (Robert Taylor was one who mentioned him in his testimony), plays Benjamin Franklin. Ken Howard is Thomas Jefferson, a role he would reprise in John Huston's 1976 short Independence. (In the short, Pat Hingle was cast as John Adams; Eli Wallach was Benjamin Franklin.) Warner »

Was Princess Kate’s Royal Ascot Dress Inspired by Sister Pippa’s Wedding Gown?

20 June 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Princess Kate may have been giving off Audrey Hepburn (in My Fair Lady) vibes at Royal Ascot, but that’s not the only famous style icon she was channeling.

Kate’s Ascot dress was reminiscent of her sister, Pippa Middleton’s wedding dress, which she wore at her nuptials just a month ago. The Ascot dress is an Alexander McQueen design that Kate tweaked to her specifications (mainly, a hemline that hits below the knee.) Pippa’s gown was a custom made creation from British designer Giles Deacon.

It’s hard to deny the similarities between the two dresses. Both »

20 June 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Prince William and Kate Middleton got all dolled up as they attended the the first day of Royal Ascot horse races on Tuesday. Despite the sweltering temperatures, the royal couple put on their best smiles as they arrived at the annual horse-race event in a carriage. While Kate channeled her inner Eliza Doolittle with a white lace Alexander McQueen dress similar to Audrey Hepburn's in My Fair Lady, her husband, who turns 35 on Wednesday, looked extremely handsome in a top hat and a long tail coat suit. Seriously, something about his traditional garb makes him look even more attractive than usual. If you don't believe us, see the pictures for yourself.

Newswire: Audrey Hepburn’s script from Breakfast At Tiffany’s is one thing this auction’s got

12 June 2017 3:09 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

If you have unlimited means and are a huge fan of Breakfast At Tiffany’s, you may be in luck: BBC News has announced that the personal collection of Audrey Hepburn is about to be auctioned off. In September, Hepburn’s items—including “unique personal objects which have never before been seen on the market”—will go up for auction at Sotheby’s, including an annotated script from her iconic film. There’s also a Burberry trenchcoat, a selection of her signature ballet pumps, portraits, and personal letters, including a “letter from Tiffany’s author Truman Capote and a cigarette lighter—engraved ‘For My Fair Lady’—which she received from that film’s art director.”

Hepburn died in 1993 at the age of 63. Previous auctions of Hepburn’s belongings have netted extremely high prices, like a collection of letters last year that went for £11,250, more than twice ...

Naomi Watts Explains Australia’s ‘Tall Poppy Syndrome' — and How She Dealt with It

9 June 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As Naomi Watts‘ career took off, not everyone was as supportive as she had hoped.

The Book of Henry star sat down with People’s editor-in-chief for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview to discuss her rise to fame and life now.

As a young woman in Australia, Watts, 48, recalls when she started getting a few acting gigs.

“I started off with modeling, but I was never tall and didn’t have that high-fashion look,” says Watts. “I would get sent on these commercial castings and often get those. I think there was a commercial. All humiliating.”

James Corden took The Late Late Show to London this week, and on Tuesday, he treated viewers to something extra special. "After the success of the last few Crosswalk Musicals, I knew I had to get the company out of Los Angeles. It was too much: the constant fame, the adulation, the cocaine," he said. "Where better to go than where I made my name on the stage?" Before Corden revealed which musical they would be performing at the Strand in Westminster, he teased, "The musical we will be performing is practically perfect in every way." Company members guessed Cats and My Fair Lady before Corden revealed it would be Mary Poppins. He then introduced Sir Ben Kingsley. "It takes one great man to make a »

Joe versus the Volcano

6 June 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

“May you live to be a thousand years old, sir.” Still the most widely unheralded great movie on the books, John Patrick Shanley’s lightweight/profound fable is an unmitigated delight. See Tom Hanks at the end of the first phase of his career plus Meg Ryan in an unacknowledged career highlight. How can a movie be so purposely insubstantial, and yet be ‘heavier’ than a dozen pictures with ‘big things to say?’
