Contraire to Marvel’s CEO: why there’s hope for female superheroes behind the camera

9 May 2015 5:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hot Pursuit has opened to critical panning and unfavorable audience reactions today. The $35 million Action-Comedy’s 6% rottentomatoes score, lack of persistent marketing and generally-unfunny jokes in its major trailer all point at a financial loss for Warner Bros. But there lies the hope for women filmmakers in this article: this movie was still released amidst all the panning, the negativity generally-aimed at female filmmakers, and the recent backlash from the leaked emails between Marvel CEOs concerning the perceived lack of appeal for female superhero films.

The leaked emails remind us of the general sexist attitude towards female filmmakers, specifically directors. The major studios, including Warner Bros, nowadays produce and distribute just a few dozen films a year with an average budget of over $100 million. All those superhero and mega-expensive films we’ve come to love, hate, and blog about are the proof. By now, we’ve all noticed that a »

Reese Witherspoon Was Pitched A Weird Idea For Legally Blonde 3

8 May 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Will we ever see a Legally Blonde 3? According to Bravo TV host Andy Cohen, "everyone" wants to know. The first film is a classic with an immense following, while the second was meh, but even I have to admit I enjoyed it a little bit through the naivety of my youth. So when Cohen had Reese Witherspoon on Watch What Happens Live with her Hot Pursuit co-star Sofia Vergara, he broached the subject. While Witherspoon doesn.t know if a third installment will ever happen, she did say that she received one offbeat idea for it.  She told Cohen,  Somebody pitched me an idea the other day. . Somebody thought it would be really funny if Elle went to jail. "Or into the army," Cohen suggested, referencing Private Benjamin.  Well, something would have to be done to up the ante. The first film saw Elle Woods chasing her ex-boyfriend to Harvard, »

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Flames on the Side of My Face: A Tribute to the Women of 'Clue'

7 March 2015 2:09 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What is it about "Clue"? Thirty years after the kooky non-hit murder mystery left theaters (along with its three original endings), it's become as much of a cult phenomenon as "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," Tim Curry's other mansion romp with a delirious lineup of characters. Don't believe me? Until Paramount stepped in to protest, La's NuArt Theatre conducted "shadow cast" screenings of "Clue" featuring costumed cast imitators who mimed the movie in front of the projection. That's a next-level tribute. Based on the Parker Brothers board game, "Clue" is a whodunit in a very traditional sense. It is literally a dark and stormy night, there is literally a butler who might've done it, and there are Agatha Christie-type explanations for the homicides at the end of the movie. So why is it beloved? That answer, unlike the culprit of the movie's seven murders, reveals itself quickly: "Clue »

CBB 2015: The best, worst and downright grossest quotes from last night's show

9 January 2015 8:58 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hooray, Celebrity Big Brother is back!

And bikini-clad model housemates Cami Li and Chloe Goodman are currently chasing a giggling Keith Chegwin around the bathroom as we type.

Last night's instalment saw the celebrity contestants - including Patsy Kensit, Katie Hopkins and Perez Hilton - getting to know each other while supping free-flowing champagne and settling into their humble Elstree abode.

And most didn't hold back on their introductions, flirtations, criticisms and unleashing of too much personal information.

We've picked some of the funniest, most memorable and, in some cases, most frankly disgusting lines from the new housemates below:

1. Katie Hopkins on Perez's pee pee

"Perez needs to go for a wee. And he's calling it pee pee. Which makes me wonder what he calls his penis. Because it's probably winkie."

2. Cami Li on her former romantic engagement to Kirk Norcross...
