James L. Brooks on Trying to Get Michelle Obama for ‘Simpsons,’ and ‘Edge of Seventeen’

12 September 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“The Edge of Seventeen,” a fresh and funny look at the emotional perils of being a high schooler, may be a “Pretty in Pink” for a new smartphone-addicted group of teenagers.

It also marks the directing debut of a major new talent in Kelly Fremon Craig, who also wrote the story about an awkward adolescent (Hailee Steinfeld), whose life gets shaken up after her best friend starts dating her older brother.

Brooks, the legendary co-creator of “The Simpsons” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” as well as the director of such film hits as “Broadcast News” and “Terms of Endearment.”

“The Edge of Seventeen” will close out the Toronto Intl. Film Festival before opening in November via Stx Entertainment. Brooks and Craig talked to Variety about their writing processes, why the film needed to be R-rated, »

‘The Hollars’ Review: John Krasinski’s Directorial Triumph Earns Laughs & Tears

29 August 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

John Krasinski, who not only co-stars in the touching new dramedy The Hollars but also expertly directs it, has said he wanted to make a Terms Of Endearment for a new generation. If the balance of hearty laughs and earned tears is any indication, he has succeeded. This is a roaringly funny movie filled with heart and emotion. The film opened on a limited basis over the weekend in New York and Los Angeles, but as I say in my video review above, this could truly be a… »

Q&A: John Krasinski and Margo Martindale Bonded Like a Real Family for ‘The Hollars’

25 August 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hollars,” which debuts on Friday, takes a comedic look at a very emotional situation in a family that is, for better or for worse, a little disjointed. John Krasinski is in both the actor’s and the director’s chair for his latest project, accompanied by a cast of Anna Kendrick, Richard Jenkins, Sharlto Copley and Margo Martindale. Krasinski and Martindale spoke with Variety about bonding like a real family on the set of “The Hollars,” the awkward moments that bring out the truth of the film and their first job together.

How did you get attached to the project?

John Krasinski: I was attached as an actor six or seven years ago. I got sent the script and I don’t think I’ve said yes to anything faster. It was just a script that I felt – I mean, there’s a lot of family movies out »

Hailee Steinfeld Stars In New Trailer For The Edge Of Seventeen

1 August 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Murray Close; Copyright: ©2015 Stx Productions, LLC. All rights reserved.

Can you imagine being seventeen again? The boys? The fashion choices? The coming-of-age-decisions?!

That’s not even the worst part! I couldn’t even imagine every dumb decision being blasted on social media! The worst we had was a beeper!

The Edge Of Seventeen is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club – an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it’s like to grow up as a young woman in today’s modern world.

In theaters later this year, check out the new trailer now.

Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson).

All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, »

Watch Ben Affleck And Anna Kendrick In The New Trailer For The Accountant

28 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a second trailer for the upcoming drama The Accountant.

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town Cpa office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations.

With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

The film also stars Jon Bernthal (“Fury,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “24”), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”), with Jeffrey Tambor (TV’s “Transparent,” “The Hangover” films »

‘The Edge of Seventeen’ Trailer: Hailee Steinfeld Toplines High School Drama That Channels John Hughes

15 July 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“There are two types of people in the world. The people who radiate confidence and naturally excel at life, and the people who hope all those people die in a big explosion.” That pretty much sums up high school junior Nadine’s (Hailee Steinfeld) thoughts on the social ladder, with her being at the bottom of the pyramid.

Growing up is hard, and it’s even harder when at the age of 13 your new haircut makes you look like Pedro from “Napoleon Dynamite.” But Nadine is a tough girl who, even though her brother is the most popular guy at school, is happy just getting by with her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) at her side. Though, like every coming-of-age story there is always something that goes awry.

Beauty vs Beast: Cillian Time

23 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Howdy and Happy Monday, folks, Jason from Mnpp here with your "Beauty vs Beast" for the week - this time around we're wishing the great and still somehow under-rated Cillian Murphy a happy 40th birthday! He hits the milestone on Wednesday, and we couldn't be happier to watch him age - his smooth-skinned preternatural prettiness was kind of too much to look at once upon a time. Time has made him seem more human, less alien and terrifying, which on the one hand is a loss, but I think that he's a great enough actor that it's one he can overcome with ease.

Anyway in his honor we're stepping back to a role that, contrary to everything I just said, showed him at his most human and his most terrifying all at once, with Wes Craven's terrifically entertaining 2005 thriller Red Eye. Cillian Murphy plays Jackson Rippner (yes really!), the »

6 Alternative Movies To Watch This Mother’s Day

2 May 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? Every year, around Mother’s Day, television schedules, streaming platforms and cinemas all try to bombard us with movies about Mums. It makes some kind of sense, I suppose, that on the specific weekend when we are encouraged to celebrate motherhood, maternal figures, and those that gave us birth, we could settle down and watch something nurturing with the special, authoritative ladies in our lives.

The trouble is, they always seem to be of a very particular type. You know which movies I’m referring to – the schmaltzy, overly-saccharine, rose-tinted views of women that parent, like Terms Of Endearment, Stepmom, or Steel Magnolias. I like musical cinema as much as the next person, but I have no intention of sitting through The Sound Of Music with my own offspring on Mothering Sunday.

Happy Birthday, Jack Nicholson

22 April 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We've been celebrating actors all month, and today one of our most legendary deserves a double dose of celebration: Jack Nicholson turns 79!

Nicholson is currently enjoying a low-key retirement. He hasn't been seen on the silver screen since James L. Brooks misfire How Do You Know, but his monolithic legacy of landmark work still feels fresh and the films rewatchable. We're lucky to still have an actor with us who can continue to inspire awe with performances like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest's McMurphy or The Joker. It's saying something that he's Oscar's most recognized actor, but has plenty of worthy unnominated worthy performances to add to the heap - Batman, Carnal Knowledge, and even The Shining.

Yes, he remains Oscar's golden son. His winning performances - Cuckoo's Nest, Terms of Endearment, and As Good As It Gets - are a great example of the range of his talents: ferocity, »

Why are Debra Winger and Sam Elliott doing a multi-cam sitcom for Netflix?

30 March 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Through long, varied, and successful careers in show business, Debra Winger and Sam Elliott have done a little bit of everything. She was one of the world's biggest movie stars in the '80s thanks to films like An Officer and a Gentleman and Terms of Endearment, but she also played Wonder Girl on the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman series, did stand-up comedy at the start of her career, and was one of the final patients on HBO's In Treatment. Elliott was a late-period castmember on the Mission: Impossible TV show, has played dozens of heavies and heroes in the movies, and even turned up clean-shaven on the final season of Justified. Starting Friday, though, you'll get to see them do something they've never done before: act in a traditional multi-cam sitcom, shot on a stage in front of a studio audience. In Netflix's The Ranch(*), they play an estranged »
