Dina Merrill, Elegant Actress and Philanthropist, Dies at 93

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dina Merrill, a beautiful, blonde actress with an aristocratic bearing known as much for her wealthy origins, philanthropy, and marriage to actor Cliff Robertson as for her work in film and television, died on Monday at her home in East Hampton, N.Y. She was 93.

Her son, Stanley H. Rumbough, told the New York Times that Merrill had Lewy Body dementia.

Her parents were Post Cereals heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, and her second husband, Wall Street’s E.F. Hutton.

In 1983, on the occasion of Merrill’s musical comedy debut in a revival of Rodgers and Hart’s 1936 musical ”On Your Toes,” the New York Times gushed, “Long regarded as the essence of chic, the epitome of class and such a persuasive purveyor of charm and charity that she could have a rightful claim to fame as an eloquent spokesman — and fund-raiser — for a slew of worthy causes, Miss Merrill »

Michael Giacchino Wants To Score The Batman, Has The Right Connections To Make It Happen

5 May 2017 3:48 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Michael Giacchino is one of the best composers working in Hollywood today, with an Oscar win for his work on Up. Though you may not recognize, or be able to pronounce the name, you've likely heard Giacchino's themes. He's been Pixar's go-to guy for years, he's done two Mission: Impossible scores, and he's responsible for perhaps the best theme of the millennium in the new Star Trek films. He's the apparent heir to John Williams, starting in Star Wars videogames and moving on to do the score for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, as well as continuing Williams' classic music in Jurassic World. Giacchino's superhero experience is also impressive; he's not only worked on The Incredibles, but also composed music for Doctor Strange and this July's Spider-Man: Homecoming

Even after composing the music for Star Wars, Star Trek, the Jurassic Park franchise, and Spider-Man, there's still a crown jewel »

‘Biography’ Franchise Returns as Event Programming Across A+E Networks Channels (Exclusive)

21 March 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A+E Networks is reviving one of the programming franchises that built the company into a cable powerhouse: “Biography.”

Rob Leane Feb 6, 2017

Further revealing his inner Brony, the legendary William Shatner has signed up for a My Little Pony role...

"Is it true you might do voice work for [My Little Pony season 7]? I'm actually a big fan of you", a Twitter user named BeaatModeBrony5 politely asked William Shatner a few days ago. 

See related  Marvel's Iron Fist: the full trailer Daredevil season 3: Vincent D’Onofrio mulls Fisk's return Marvel's Luke Cage season 2 confirmed by Netflix Marvel's The Defenders: more images arrive

The Star Trek legend's response was simple: "Already did."

"I'm a brony and friendship is magic", Shatner wrote in an earlier Tweet, which instigated the rumour that he's jumping on board the Hasbro series. Now, it seems to be confirmed.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is the latest incarnation of the show. Its seventh season is expected early this year. There's also My Little Pony: The Movie, which is coming in October. »

Don’t let the ugly Italian poster art on the disc box throw you — The Internecine Project is a clever plot-driven murder tale in an espionage vein that gathers a string of B+ stars from the early 1970s for ninety minutes of suspense. It’s not the kind of suspense that makes you wonder what’s going to happen next, but the kind that points to a finish that we know will employ a big surprise, a killer-diller last-minute twist. Or three.
