See Stephen Colbert's Epic, Star-Studded Farewell Sing-Along

19 December 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When it was announced that Grimmy the Grim Reaper would be Stephen Colbert's final guest on The Colbert Report, fans speculated whether the future Late Show host was killing off his satirical character. Instead, Colbert's Colbert became immortal, and he closed out his nine-year Comedy Central run with a performance for the ages.

The host ended his Report with an all-star performance of Vera Lynn's "We'll Meet Again," featuring "We Are the World"-style appearances by an incredible cast of singers, actors, politicians and pundits. First out to »

The odd places It’s A Wonderful Life has turned up

19 December 2014 6:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Clips of It’s A Wonderful Life appear in all sorts of TV shows and films, some predictable Christmas fare and some you might not expect…

Thanks to NBC’s long-standing tradition of airing Frank Capra’s 1946 festive fantasy drama every 24th of December, It’s A Wonderful Life has become a Stateside Christmas institution. The film’s story of a small town family man facing financial ruin being coaxed back from suicide by an angel who shows him how important he is to the world is now as festive as overspending and overeating.

Its ubiquity means that It’s A Wonderful Life is one of the first ports of call when shows and movies want to inject a festive feel into their fictional worlds, hence it having been subject to more on-screen references, quotes, parodies and homages than you can shake a jingle bell at.

Ian McKellen Teaches Cookie Monster Self-Control on Sesame Street

18 December 2014 8:01 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"Say there was ... a golden ring. And you really, really wanted this golden ring. It was like your precious..."

Sir Ian McKellen appeared on Sesame Street recently. In this segment he teaches Cookie Monster about resistance and self-control. You know that urge we get sometimes when we want something really, really badly? Well, McKellen wants us to resist that crap! 

You shall not pass! Please resist!The word resist means to control yourself and stop yourself from doing something you really want to do, though that's not a word that Cookie Monster really understands. Ian McKellen demonstrates.

So, our homework assignment for the rest of the week will be to put self-control into practice. We can do this! I'm gonna go eat a cookie now. Seriously.

Ian McKellen and Cookie Monster make an irresistible couple on 'Sesame Street'

16 December 2014 5:01 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cookie Monster may be my favorite Sesame Street character of all time, and here the lovable glutton is as adorable as I remember while learning the word "resist" from Sir Ian McKellen. Too bad I didn't see this video before eating all those Hershey's Kisses today. Oh well! Could you find a cuter couple? I giggled throughout. There's even a "Lord of the Rings" reference for folks who are into that. I could just eat Sir Ian's candy-red sweater. God grant me the strength...to be as chic and elegant as this man at age 84. »

Is A Muppet Family Christmas the best holiday special ever?

15 December 2014 11:53 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Yes, The Muppet Christmas Carol is wonderful, but children of the 80s might remember another classic Muppet special...

The Muppet Christmas Carol is wonderful. It’s perfectly pitched, sharp and witty, yet also genuinely moving. It’s genius lies in how seriously it takes the material. It lets the full horror and pathos of Dickens’ original tale fill the screen, letting the Muppets manoeuvre around it, instead of dominating, so it’s just as riveting as it is hilarious. But without wanting to get heretical here, it might not actually be the best holiday themed Muppet special. I’d argue that title actually falls to a criminally under-seen 1987 ABC television special, called A Muppet Family Christmas.

Adored by those who’ve seen it, it’s been mostly keep out of circulation due to a copyright mess. A mess that results mostly from it’s greatest selling point - that is the one big, »

BFI’s Sci-Fi Season: Blade Runner: The Final Cut (1982)

14 December 2014 1:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blade Runner, 1982.

Directed by Ridley Scott.

Starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Daryl Hannah and Edward James Olmos.

Synopsis:

A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.

As part of the BFI’s Science Fiction season, Ridley Scott’s visionary dystopian cyberpunk film will be screened on December 14th, before a nationwide re-release next April. The film has gone down in Hollywood legend for its complicated existence. From the troubled, often tortuous shoot, to misguided marketing, through to a theatrical release that tore critics and (disappointing low numbers of) audience members straight down the middle. It truly was a love it or hate it affair.

In 1992, following the film being re-appraised on the burgeoning home video market through the 80’s, Ridley Scott was able to then release a Directors cut, which »

A Visit to William Wegman’s Studio — and a Reunion With a Beloved Relic From His Past

12 December 2014 11:09 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

By far the most clamorous reception I encountered was at the home and studio of William Wegman, from his three Weimaraners — Candy, Bobbin, and Flo. Wegman is widely known for the photographs, films, and videos he stages of his gray-furred clan. This three-decade story began with Wegman’s legendary Man Ray. Fay Ray succeeded his reign in 1986, as later did her offspring, and theirs in turn. Flo, pictured here, arrived in March of 2011, and Topper in May, shortly after my visit. Appearances over the years have included The Tonight Show and Late Night With David Letterman, and Wegman has created film and video works for Saturday Night Live, Nickelodeon, and Sesame Street. Wegman has also produced a series of children’s books (including Little Red Riding HoodMother Goose, and Chip Wants a Dog) and many others for adult readership. “I was so excited to see that chair,” Wegman said »

Voice Cast For The Peanuts Movie Has Been Revealed

28 November 2014 10:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are still twelve months to go before the world gets to see the newest adventures of Charlie Brown in the Peanuts movie, but as is the case with marketing in today’s cinematic climate, audiences are growing to expect teaser materials at least a year in advance. So, after dropping the first trailer earlier this month, 20th Century Fox has now revealed who will be voicing the iconic characters based on Charles M. Schulz’s original comic series.

The cast of characters in the CGI-animated romp all originate from the classic children’s strip comic of the same name. For the first new feature in 35 years involving Charlie, Lucy, Linus, Franklin, Peppermint Patty, Snoopy and Woodstock, the studio has chosen a range of up-and-coming child actors to lend their voices to the much-loved troupe.

It might be considered a gamble to place newcomers into such a well-known franchise, but »

Walk of Fame Honoree Christoph Waltz on His Diverse Run

28 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Comedy is not necessarily top of the mind when one thinks of Christoph Waltz, but consider this: going back to his acclaimed hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” last year, his recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” performing the “Sesame Street” theme song and now with “Horrible Bosses 2,” Waltz has opened up comedic venues for his diverse talents.

Waltz, who will receive a star Dec. 1 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, says his interest in “HB2” was piqued by a clash of narrative approaches taken in the Sean Anders-helmed sequel to the 2011 hit, in which he co-stars with Chris Pine as conniving father-son investors taking Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis for a ride.

“Three silly men or boys in a very serious story — a thriller — that’s how they treated this, and that’s why it works so well,” he says of the comedy, which opens wide Nov. »

‘Peanuts’ Voice Cast Announced

27 November 2014 11:02 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Charlie Brown, Snoopy and friends look set to take the CG world by storm in their upcoming feature length film, Peanuts. Based on the characters created by Charles M. Schultz for the comic-strip of the same name, Peanuts will see the world through the eyes of the young. Anyone worth their salt will already be planning on fitting A Charlie Brown Christmas into their Christmas schedule, and from the trailer it certainly looks as though the makers are trying to capture the magic of the original strip. As such, a young voice cast has been assembled, which doesn’t include any immediately recognisable names in its ranks, unless you’re a youngling yourself with a keen ear for Disney/Nickelodeon stars.

Here’s the cast, and we’re very happy that stars haven’t been crammed in to slap over posters and TV spots:
