Annie review – pink, sparkly radioactive waste

16 December 2014 5:37 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This unecessary reboot is clearly meant to warm the cockles, but boring musical numbers and hammy performances simply leave the viewer with a sugar rush of nausea

There’s been an update to that well-known tune about Annie, the parentless little cutester melting the flinty heart of the scowling plutocrat billionaire looking after her. It’s based on – and basically mired in – the 1970s Broadway musical, which has already had two movie adaptations: the 1982 film directed by John Huston with Aileen Quinn as Annie and Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks, and the 1999 version directed by Rob Marshall with Alicia Morton and Victor Garber.

This new one, on the other hand, is basically like a horrific mix of Lionel Bart’s Oliver, My Fair Lady and Pretty Woman. Did we really need another go-around for Annie, that indomitable little curly-haired moppet, who defiantly sings about how she’ll “love ya tomorrow »

New Red-Band Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service

10 December 2014 12:43 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service has dropped a new, slightly Nsfw trailer (with thanks to IGN), packing in a shed load of action, laughs, and plot into just under three minutes. My Fair Lady with a super spy twist, this re-teams the Kick-Ass super team of Vaughn, comic creator Mark Millar, and script writer Jane Goldman, and judging by everything we've seen from this so far, it's going to be a serious amount of fun. Released: 13th February 2015 »

'Manhattan Love Story' and 'Selfie' Land on Hulu

3 December 2014 2:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The ABC sitcom "Manhattan Love Story" was the first fall show to get the axe back in October, followed quickly by "Selfie," but you can't keep a fair to middling romcom down.

Hulu is snagging the remaining seven unaired episodes of "Manhattan Love Story" to run every Thursday, kicking off on December 3. Last week, "Selfie" series creator/showrunner Emily Kapnek tweeted that Hulu would also be picking up the 21st century take on "My Fair Lady," to run on Tuesdays. Hulu will run one new episode every week.

Although "Manhattan Love Story" didn't win over many fans, "Selfie" had its admirers. Is it possible that Hulu or some other streaming service will snap this "Selfie"? Hey, it worked for "Community"! Sort of.

Japan Film Festival 2014 Review: Lady Maiko Is A Languidly Lyrical Linguistic Lark

2 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

A loose remake of the hit 1964 Broadway musical My Fair Lady, Lady Maiko (also a musical) takes the basic premise of genteel sensibility and applies it to the contemporary realm of traditional Kyoto geisha and maiko (those in training to be geisha). The major component of the original musical concerns a cockney flower girl and the professor that gives her speech lessons.In this 2014 film however relative newcomer Mone Kamishiraishi plays Haruko, a young girl who barges into a prestigious geisha house and begs to be a maiko. A language professor in the tea room overhears her, particularly her strong country-bumpkin accent. He strikes a deal with the tea-house owner and it is not long before he is teaching, and helping transform Haruko...

Hulu Picks Up Unaired Episodes Of ABC’s Canceled ‘Selfie’

26 November 2014 8:59 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has become a digital rescue shelter for an abandoned TV series. The streaming video service will run the six unaired episodes of ABC’s recently-canceled Selfie. Selfie stars Karen Gillan and John Cho in a modern interpretation of My Fair Lady (based on the classic play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw). The comedy series was created by writer Emily Kapnek, who’s previously written for shows like Parks & Recreation and Suburgatory. The first of the remaining Selfie episodes debuted on Hulu and Hulu Plus on Tuesday, November 25. The following five episodes will be released one at a time each week for the next five weeks. Hulu doesn’t plan to renew the series, unlike its competitors Netflix and Yahoo tend to do with the series they save. Netflix revived Fox’s hit comedy Arrested Developmentfor a fourth season, and Yahoo is starting production on the online-only sixth season of Community, »

New Character Posters For Kingsman: The Secret Service

26 November 2014 6:53 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Stepping foot into the realm of comic book movies yet again (and adapting the work of Mark Millar for a second time after Kick-Ass), Matthew Vaughn is taking the helm of Kingsman: The Secret Service, a movie that is best described as My Fair Lady meets James Bond. While it may have been delayed till next year, anticipation should still be high, and, courtesy of IMDb, we have four new character posters (featuring Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Taron Egerton, and Dog) that perfectly captures the fun and irreverent tone the movie promises to deliver, while making a tongue in cheek swipe at probably the most famous Bond image at the same time. Check them out below. Released: 12th February 2015 (Irl/U.K.)/ 13th February 2015 (U.S.) »

‘Selfie’ Unaired ABC Episodes Head to Hulu

24 November 2014 9:40 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Selfie” won’t be squelched. The seven remaining unaired episodes of the ABC sitcom that was yanked earlier this month are said to be headed to Hulu.

Series creator Emily Kapnek spread the word in a Twitter message sent Nov. 19.

Unofficially? All remaining episodes of #SelfieABC will soon be on Hulu, Hulu Plus & http://t.co/gnNYZlYFqw Hugs to Peter Roth @warnerbrostv

Emily Kapnek (@EmilyKapnek) November 20, 2014

Selfie” has been part of the high casualty rate of new comedies this fall. ABC’s decision to pull the show from its sked after six airings came as a surprise to industry observers as the show — a contempo spin on “My Fair Lady” revolving around a narcissistic young woman addicted to digital media — was starting to get some traction with critics. Karen Gillan and John Cho starred.

Reps for Warner Bros. TV and Hulu could not immediately be reached for comment late Monday. »

It's the role that catapulted a newcomer named Audrey Hepburn to international stardom and later served as the centerpiece to one of the most Oscar-laden movie musicals in Hollywood history. Now, Vanessa Hudgens - exclusively seen here for the first time in character - is stepping into the enviable shoes of French novelist Colette's irresistible gamine in turn-of-the-20th-century Paris, Gigi, for the splashy stage musical of the same name. "Excited isn't a strong enough word!" the actress, who rose to fame as Gabriella Montez on the Disney Channel's High School Musical, tells People about landing the title role in the Broadway-bound adaptation. »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: November 10 - 16

10 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"How To Train Your Dragon 2"

This sequel to the popular DreamWorks animated film isn't quite as winning as the original, but the adventures of Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon Toothless still manage to please. Gerard Butler returns as the voice of Hiccup's dad Stoick, with Djimon Hounsou as the voice of a baddie named Drago and Cate Blanchett as a mysterious dragon rider named Valka.

"Tammy"

Melissa McCarthy co-wrote this comedy/drama with her husband Ben Falcone, who also directs. Marketed as a broad comedy with lots of physical humor, "Tammy" has more to it than McCarthy's pratfalls and naughty humor. Susan Sarandon co-stars as Tammy's alcoholic grandmother Pearl, who accompanies Tammy on an ill-fated road trip. This included »

Oh, Selfie, we hardly knew yourself! Karen Gillan’s chance at American TV stardom has clicked off faster than a camera with dying batteries.  The Amy Pond actress’s Us sitcom, Selfie, has now been officially canceled by ABC.  The show’s plot was a 21st-century twist on the Pygmalion/My Fair Lady story, with Gillan’s self-absorbed “Eliza Dooley” character...

ABC Says No More Selfie

9 November 2014 7:59 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

ABC has a flop on their hands with the show Selfie. The comedy was supposed to be a modern take on My Fair Lady with a character needing help from a male friend to teach her how to behave. The show never got much attention and was pretty well ignored even by ABC. Now we get word that the freshman series is not having their show extended to a full season. This in other words pretty much cancels the series. No official word has been released yet by ABC at the time of this writing.

Yikes, I am not shocked. The show did sound like a cute idea, but it was what ABC needed. It would have performed better on ABC Family since it was a more silly show. I am not sure why they picked it up when it did compare so vastly different from the networks other shows. »

Please let's have a moment of silence for ABC's Selfie. Actually, do the opposite and let the spirit of Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) compel you and take to Twitter, Vine, Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat to express your heartache! The ABC comedy from Suburgatory's Emily Kapnek, described as a modern-day My Fair Lady, has been axed.

As the two worked together, with her helping him be more social, sparks started to blossom. Click: The best and worst new shows, according to you! Selfie joins fellow Tuesday night »

ABC Pulls the Plug on 'Selfie'

7 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Selfie," we hardly knew ye!

ABC isn't ordering more episodes past the initial 13. It will air on Tuesday, but it sounds like that's all she wrote. The 21st century take on "My Fair Lady" and "Pygmalion" stars Karen Gillan as Eliza Dooley (you know, like Eliza Doolittle) as a young gal who's obsessed with ephemeral social media fame and/or how many "likes" her most recent Instagram selfie has gotten. John Cho costars as Henry Higgs (like Henry Higgins!), a coworker who's a marketing guru who's tasked with remaking Eliza into someone a little more human.

You can snag "Selfie" on Hulu or ABC's official site, based on your cable provider.

ABC Cancels Manhattan Love Story And Orders More Selfie

25 October 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the first cull of the season, ABC has terminated the fledgling comedy series Manhattan Love Story, after it failed to recover from a shaky start by its third episode. There is much debate about the validity of ratings numbers – at a time when networks are trying to gauge viewership around DVR recordings, while simultaneously scrambling to adapt to changing viewing habits in light of media streaming and ‘binge-watching’ – but it seems the situation for the show was just too dire to continue.

The short-lived series followed Dana (Analeigh Tipton) and Peter (Jake McDorman) as they embarked on a new relationship together – and explored their “unfiltered internal monologues” in the process. Written by Jeff Lowell (Two And A Half Men), the show got off to a relatively weak start – with ratings indicating that viewers were switching off after Manhattan Love Story’s lead-in show, Selfie. Numbers decreased with each subsequent episode which, »

The 5 Best ‘Pygmalion’ Movies Since ‘My Fair Lady’

21 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When the movie version of My Fair Lady premiered — 50 years ago today — it was an adaptation of a stage show that was a musical remake of a play that was loosely based on an ancient myth. Once again: “originality” is not that big a deal and never has been. Proof has continued in the legacy of all these properties in the half century since. Even now on television there is a sitcom so admittedly based on Pygmalion that the characters are named Eliza Dooley and Henry Higgs. The fact that most people call this show, Selfie, a modern take on the musical rather than George Bernard Shaw‘s earlier drama is not a surprise. Different generations have their reference point. In She’s All That, for instance, Rachel Leigh Cook’s character says, “I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, except for the whole hooker thing.” She »

Curio: My Fair Lady at 50

20 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Alexa here to celebrate the 50th anniversary of My Fair Lady. Although not my favorite movie musical, unlike the Smackdowners this summer,  I always have a blast returning to it.  Despite the many charms of Audrey Hepburn's performance, I love re-writing history and imagining how different a film it would be had Julie Andrews returned to the role.  Even more intriguing is imagining if Elizabeth Taylor (who wanted the role) had played Eliza.  For better or for worse, its Pygmalion story continues to be reinvented, with the latest incarnation being the ABC comedy Selfie (worth a watch for John Cho).

Some curios, vintage and handmade, to celebrate 1964's Best Picture after the jump...
