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 »

Watch: Shirley MacLaine Does The Cagle Exercise - and Admits She 'Forgot' the Last Time She Felt Sexy

17 March 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's been a long time since Shirley MacLaine has felt sexy. The Terms of Endearment Oscar winner, 81, sat down with People and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle during a Sirius Xm town hall for a rapid-fire Q&A game called The Cagle Exercise - and MacLaine revealed more than a few intimate details about herself. From the movie she's seen the most times (Inherit the Wind) to what she's really bad at ("Patience! I have no patience"), the actress held nothing back while in the hot seat. So when does MacLaine feel sexiest? "I forgot," she tells Cagle as »

Shirley MacLaine Reveals the Priceless Advice She Gave Jennifer Lawrence: 'Know Who You Are'

Before she became an Oscar winner and blockbuster star, Jennifer Lawrence received some sage advice from Shirley MacLaine, who urged the young actress to always stay true to herself. "She was entirely different then. It was years ago and I don't think she understood how good she really is," MacLaine told Pepole and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle of their conversation during a recent SiriusXM town hall. The Terms of Endearment acting icon saw a lot of herself in the outspoken Louisville, Kentucky, native - and encouraged Lawrence to not lose touch with her roots. "Be yourself.

The Best Picture Oscar winners that had sequels

25 February 2016 11:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




More Best Picture Oscar winners have had sequels than you may think. This lot, in fact...

There’s still an element of snobbery where sequels to certain films is concerned. Whereas it’s now almost compulsory to greenlight a blockbuster with a view of a franchise in mind, it’s hard to think of most Best Picture Oscar winners being made with a follow-up in mind. Yet in perhaps a surprising number of cases, a sequel – or in the case of Rocky, lots of sequels – have followed.

These cases, in fact…

All Quiet On The Western Front (1930)

Followed by: The Road Back

Don’t be fooled into thinking sequels for prestigious movies are a relatively new phenomenon. Lewis Milestone’s 1930 war epic All Quiet On The Western Front, and its brutal account of World War I, is still regarded as something of a classic. A solid box office success, »

Shirley MacLaine Starring in ‘A Little Mermaid’ Movie

23 February 2016 10:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shirley MacLaine, Poppy Drayton and Loreto Peralta will star in the live-action family film “A Little Mermaid,” based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

Newly launched Mvp Studios is producing the film. The Florida-based company was founded by Robert Molloy, grandson of the late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, and Armando Gutierrez (“Walt Before Mickey”) with a focus on producing and distributing family films.

Shooting is set to start in March in Georgia, with Chris Bouchard (“Hackney’s Finest”) directing from a screenplay by Blake Harris (“12 Dates of Christmas”). Molloy and Gutierrez are the film’s producers.

Andersen’s story, first published in 1837, centers on a young mermaid willing to give up her life in the sea to gain a human soul after she falls in love with a handsome prince. Disney’s animated “The Little Mermaid” was released in 1989 and grossed over $200 million worldwide.

The 25 greatest Oscar speeches

19 February 2016 4:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're just a week away from another gold-tinged year of speeches, upsets, and snubs. After all the hype, what ends up mattering about the Oscars? I'd argue it's the speeches, and that's why we're picking the 25 best acceptance speeches ever -- by actors only. Sorry, but glamor is a key element in any Oscar moment and I don't have time to remember if the guy who adapted The Last Emperor thanked his mom.  25. Dustin Hoffman, Kramer vs. Kramer Dustin Hoffman's seriousness initially seems worrisome, but his mix of sarcasm and sincerity is right for the ceremony.  24. Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose Cotillard's tearful speech makes you realize how rare it is than an Oscar recipient is surprised to win. As Cotillard scrambles to make sense of the honor, she comes up with an ebullient finale: "Thank you, life! Thank you, love! It is -- there are some angels in this city. »

Best Picture and Better Picture: Movies That Should Have Won the Oscar but Didn’t

19 February 2016 3:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 The best picture doesn’t always win Best Picture. Sometimes the best film of the year gets robbed. Cinelinx looks at the movies which should have won Best Picture but didn’t.

Whenever the Best Picture winner is announced at the Oscars, sometimes we say, “Yeah, that deserved to win,” but then again, sometimes we say, “Huh? Are they kidding me?!” There are a lot of backstage politics and extenuating factors in Hollywood that can determine which film wins the big trophy. The worthiest film doesn’t always take the statue home. Going back over the 88-year history of the Academy Awards, we look at which films didn’t really deserve to win and the ones which rightfully should have won.

Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

6 February 2016 6:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter: Glib TV news watch. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks »

Bye Instant Watch: Terms of Endearment, Tom Cruise, Big Fish...

What's leaving Netflix Instant Watch?

We should probably start covering that. It seems like a boring topic but we jazz up your public service announcements. I'll close my eyes and play with the control bar and wherever I freeze the movie I'll share the image. This weekend is your last chance to watch these films for free for who knows how long. Since there are Oscar titles in the mix, perhaps you can fill some holes in your Oscar lists of Things To See or Rewatch.

Ready? In chronological order of their film year, seven films leaving Netflix on February 1st...

Terms Of Endearment (1983)

Emma: I've got some good news. I'm unofficially pregnant. I mean I haven't got the tests back but I'm never late.

Aurora: [Pause] Well... No, I don't understand."

Look how crazy young Jeff Daniels is! Shirley Maclaine is so hilarious and complicated in this movie -- that »

Get Psyched (or Psychiatric)! Rachel Bloom and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Are Back

25 January 2016 1:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Accepting a best actress Golden Globe last month for her first-season CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rachel Bloom put on a display of suitably crazy, actress-y fireworks: "We sent the pilot to every other network in Hollywood! We got six rejections in one day - and we felt like crap! But we knew it was good!" She was very excited. It was almost as big a moment as Shirley MacLaine screaming for painkillers for Debra Winger in Terms of Endearment. Actually, since it was funny, it was probably better.
