John Cleese Teases DC Movie Role, Who Is He Playing?

25 January 2017 3:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are a lot of upcoming movies planned for Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe, and that means they are going to need a lot of actors and actresses to fill out those casts. Given the number of superhero adventures getting made, it seems like virtually everyone in Hollywood is going to be in one at some point. On that note, it seems like legendary comedian and Monty Python actor John Cleese may be joining the DC Comics movie universe.

The rumors of John Cleese's involvement in a DC movie started a couple of months ago when the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice account, and DC Photographer Clay Enos both followed him on Twitter. That was a little thin on its own, but now the 77-year-old comedian posted a photo to his Twitter account that adds some more fuel to the fire. The photo, on the surface, seems pretty innocuous, »

Sundance 2017: Climate Change and Cussing Nuns Kick of 33rd Film Festival

23 January 2017 9:32 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

As in the past few years, the 2017 Sundance Film Festival kicked off with a sampling of six movies from the different sections, but the movie that probably had the most interest right off the bat was the premiere of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.

Ten years after Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth was blowing minds about global warming from its 2006 Sundance premiere to winning the Oscar, he’s back with an update that offers at least some hope for the future of the earth, but tempered with a warning that the United States could end up backtracking under the leadership of a vocal denier of climate change.

The previous movie was essentially Gore’s slide show presentation of graphs and charts showing how the build-up of carbon gases in the atmosphere has created unstable climate and weather, being responsible for the increase in the deadliest typhoons and hurricanes. At first, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Little Hours’

20 January 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What for American satirist Jeff Baena (“Life After Beth,” “Joshy”) must have felt like a radically innovative idea — take a medieval piece of literature, such as Giovanni Boccaccio’s “The Decameron,” and recreate it with an irreverent modern sensibility — is in fact a strategy that Euro auteurs have been doing for decades. Not that a somewhat overinflated sense of novelty makes Baena’s twisted nuns-gone-wild comedy “The Little Hours” any less entertaining.

Only the most ascetic of filmmakers sets out to create a starchy period piece about naïve maidens pining away in airless old castles. The trouble is that even when such racy directors as Benoit Jacquot and Catherine Breillat attempt to modernize such material, between the subtitles and cultural differences, too much is lost in translation. “The Little Hours” is, then, a medieval convent comedy for the megaplex crowd, one that dispenses with the notion of nuns as prim-and-proper »
