Exclusive Portrait: Angelica Huston at the Chicago Humanities Festival

10 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The famed Oscar-winning actress Angelica Huston comes from a lineage of Hollywood royalty – her father John was a legendary director and her grandfather Walter was a noted actor. She brought all of that history to the Chicago Humanities Festival, where she was featured at the Closing Event on November 14th, 2014, at the First United Methodist Church at The Chicago Temple.

Huston was there to discuss her second memoir, “Watch Me,” her followup to “A Story Told Lately.” Through both books she chronicles her rise from enchanted childhood to model and actress. “Watch Me” focuses on her stardom years, including her relationship with Jack Nicholson and her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “Prizzi’s Honor” – directed by her father John Huston. After that honor, Huston made several memorable films, including “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” “The Addams Family,” “The Witches” and “The Darjeeling Limited.” She also recently was a featured cast member in the TV show, »

Steven Spielberg Begins Principal Photography On Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg has begun principal photography on an untitled Cold War spy thriller starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump,” “Philadelphia”).

The production, which also stars Tony Award winner Mark Rylance (“Intimacy,” “The Other Boleyn Girl”), Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan (“Gone Baby Gone,” “Win Win”) and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda (“M*A*S*H,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors”), will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.

Production in New York was possible due to support from state and local film agencies, and in Berlin, through the support of several film funds.

The film is the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

20th Century Fox is co-financing the film with DreamWorks in association with Participant Media, »

Filming Begins on Steven Spielberg’s Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks and Disney have announced that principal photography has commenced on Steven Spielberg's untitled Cold War spy thriller starring Tom Hanks.  As we previously reported, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  The film will also star Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda, and will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.  Following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, and The Terminal, this will mark Spielberg's fourth film collaboration with Hanks, and hopefully it will be a fruitful one, especially since they're working from a script by the Coen Brothers.  Hanks and Spielberg's most recent collaboration was as executive producers on HBO's miniseries The Pacific. Hit the jump for the press release. »

The Mindy Project Recap: Evasive Maneuvers

30 September 2014 7:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“You’re a perfect couple: You’re terrible people and you’re huge liars,” Cliff hollers at Danny in Tuesday’s Mindy Project, and he’s not wrong — at least not in this week’s episode.

After all, by the time Cliff’s frustration reaches its zenith, both Danny and his self-involved girlfriend have flung falsehoods at each other and repeatedly fibbed to the heartbroken lawyer. Plus, we learn Mindy hasn’t paid taxes in six years?!

It’s as if the docs’ romance has made them even bigger weirdos than when they were apart, as you’ll see while »

Toronto Film Review: ‘While We’re Young’

7 September 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

: Witty, articulate and reminiscent of several talented directors who no longer mean so much to today’s kids, Noah Baumbach’s latest stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as husband-and-wife filmmakers who “adopt” a mid-20s hipster couple as friends. Though not as broadly appealing as a Judd Apatow picture, Baumbach’s own acutely observed this-is-life laffer features his most relatable characters yet. Marketed right, it stands to considerably outperform his other pics, which tend to top out around $4 million.

Like the Woody Allen character in “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” Stiller’s Josh Srebnick frets that the talky, noncommercial documentary he’s been working on for the past decade may never get done. Looking back, he and wife Cornelia (Watts) can’t seem to figure out when they stopped being young and ambitious, and instead became a pair of middle-aged disappointments, though their choice not to have kids — more nature’s decision than their own, »

Bill Hader’s List of 200 Essential Comedies Everyone Should See

28 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »

Watch: Andrew Garfield Gets The House Back In First Clip From Ramin Bahrani's '99 Homes'

27 August 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Andrew Garfield has been locked up in “Spider-Man” world for quite some time now, but he’s used his down time judiciously. He acted alongside the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Death of a Salesman” on Broadway, something he’ll likely never forget, but since he was cast as the cheeky webslinger, Garfield’s only acted in one film. And he’s chosen well with “99 Homes,” the fifth feature-length effort by indie director Ramin Bahrani. Cherished by the late Roger Ebert and Werner Herzog (who voiced his 2009 short, “Plastic Bag”) Bahrani went slightly mainstream with 2013's drama "At Any Price," an imperfect but still compelling "Crimes And Misdemeanors"-esque tale set in the heartland of America starring Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham no less. And while it was his first movie with a name cast, the filmmaker’s intentions were still much the same (and it was easily »

Film Review: Sachs' Latest Comparable to Bergman, Godard, De Sica

23 August 2014 10:29 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Love Is Strange’ movie review: Gay romantic drama is ‘beautiful in every way’ (photo: John Lithgow and Alfred Molina in ‘Love Is Strange’) Love Is Strange is beautiful in every way that a film can be beautiful, and unabashedly so. Yet, despite its willingness to gild the lily for love of ethereal, aesthetic beauty in all its forms, it is a film that reaches for the truth — the deepest truths of what we often call “the human condition.” For all these reasons I love Ira Sachs’ movie as much as it wishes we would love each other. I love the artistry of it. I love what it has to say and that it’s something seldom said. I love that it is forgiving. Without hyperbole, I tell you that Love Is Strange is the stuff of Jean-Luc Godard (Notre Musique and In Praise of Love), Vittorio De Sica (Umberto D. »

The ‘Magic’ Is Gone: The Lazy Nihilism of Woody Allen

30 July 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

(Note: This piece reveals details about the ending of “Magic in the Moonlight.”)

Amid this unusually busy season for faith-based cinema — or whatever we should call 2014’s bumper crop of Christian-themed and/or spiritually inclined movies, from “Son of God,” “Noah,” “God’s Not Dead” and “I Origins” to the still-forthcoming “Left Behind” and “Exodus: Gods and Kings” — the arrival of one of the year’s more prominent anti-faith movies should not go unnoticed. I’m talking about “Magic in the Moonlight,” the latest sun-drenched romantic travelogue from that fitful cinematic genius and self-styled nihilist philosopher, Woody Allen.

Fittingly enough for a story about professional magicians and wily con artists, the film unfolds against the French Riviera in 1928, a setting ripe with all manner of enchanting and seductive possibilities. But don’t let that title fool you: Earnest as it may sound, it actually begs to be read sarcastically. Allen »

Woody Allen’s Rhode Island Pic Is A “Murder Mystery”

25 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although Woody Allen’s latest, 1920s-set romantic caper Magic in the Moonlight, is just opening this week, news about the prolific helmer’s next project is already emerging. We had previously learned that the untitled film would be set in modern-day Rhode Island and be a “contemporary story” that centers on “academics, graduate students, and middle- and working – class folks.” Additionally, it was revealed that the cast would include Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone, Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley.

Now that Allen is rolling cameras on the pic in Rhode Island, some more news about the project has broken. According to the film’s executive producer Ron Chez, who spoke with the Chicago Sun-Times about working with Allen, the new movie is  “a murder mystery, set on a college campus.” The Chicago Tribune added that it is a “serious-ish drama.”

So, are we looking at something similar to Match Point? Or »

Colin Firth and Jacki Weaver Try to Pick Their Favorite Woody Allen Film

22 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Woody Allen has directed so many movies, it’s hard to pick just one favorite. At the L.A. premiere of his latest, “Magic in the Moonlight,” at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study on Monday, the attendees had some trouble even narrowing it down.

“Well, I’ve got about 12,” said Jacki Weaver, who plays Grace in the film. “I’ll always have a soft spot for ‘Zelig.’ And I love all the usual things. I love ‘A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy,’ and more recently I love ‘Match Point.’ I’m crazy about ‘Broadway Danny Rose’ and ‘The Purple Rose of Cairo’ and ‘Crimes and Misdemeanors’ and ‘Hannah and Her Sisters.’”

Colin Firth, who stars opposite Emma Stone, struggled with the same question. “I think people can play this, it’s like a parlor game all night, really. At the moment, »

Blu-ray Release: Broadway Danny Rose

24 March 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: April 8, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Twilight Time

Woody Allen makes the call in Broadway Danny Rose.

Woody Allen’s (Crimes and Misdemeanors) 1984 comedy Broadway Danny Rose makes its Blu-ray debut in April courtesy of Twilight Time.

Starring, written, and directed by Woody, Broadway Danny Rose offers a variation on the filmmaker’s patented schlub character: this time, he’s the eponymous good-hearted talent agent who represents not just the worst, but the most pathetic acts in show business. Among these is Lou Canova (Nick Apollo Forte), a corny lounge singer saddled with a drinking problem and a temperamental mistress, Tina Vitale (Mia Farrow, Rosemary’s Baby). When Lou asks Danny to be his beard with Tina, the wimpy agent suddenly finds himself dealing with the Mob—and with the feisty Tina, herself.

The film is beautifully rendered in black-and-white by cinematographer Gordon Willis—and it’s sure to »

Here's your Martha Stewart-esque craft tip for the month, physical media lovers: Did you know that a scratched DVD can be polished with just a dab of toothpaste? Stay away from extra-whitening product (you don't want to bleach your Criterions!), but when mixed with water and wiped clean with a microfiber cloth, a smudge of Colgate will make your discs sparkle and Sandra Bullock will stop freezing before she's torn apart by space wolves at the end of "Gravity."

Golden Globes 2014: Keaton Praises DeMille Recipient Allen, Who Is Attacked by Son on Twitter

Woody Allen Golden Globes 2014 tribute: Diane Keaton remembers ‘friend’ (photo: Woody Allen directing Cate Blanchett in ‘Blue Jasmine’) Accepting from presenter Emma Stone the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award for absentee Woody Allen, Diane Keaton (Sleeper, Love and Death, Annie Hall, Interiors, Manhattan, Manhattan Murder Mystery) was a likable presence at the January 12, 2014, Golden Globes ceremony, but her reminiscences about Allen were clearly PG-rated, going on about their "friendship" as if the two had always been just pals. Was that lullaby she sang moving or would Woody Allen have been right in yelling, "get the hook and get her off the god damn stage"? You decide. Now, in all fairness, Diane Keaton’s Woody Allen tribute wasn’t all PG-rated treacle, as she was twice bleeped by the censors. Apparently, NBC — and the ludicrous FCC — believe television audiences should be treated as if we were all three-year-olds. (See also: “Golden Globes »

Golden Globes 2014 winners (photo: 2014 Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence in ‘American Hustle’) Scroll down to check out the full list of Golden Globes 2014 winners. This year’s Golden Globes ceremony took place earlier this evening, January 12, with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey back as hosts. (Here are our fearless — and somewhat accurate — Golden Globes 2014 Predictions and our equally fearless — and mostly accurate — 2014 Golden Globes Predictions - The Nominations.) The 2014 Golden Globe nominations were announced by Aziz Ansari, Zoe Saldana, and Olivia Wilde exactly one month ago. Among the surprises was the inclusion in the Best Picture - Drama category of Ron Howard’s domestic box office disappointment Rush, starring Chris Hemsworth and Best Supporting Golden Globe nominee Daniel Brühl, and the exclusion of The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Martin Scorsese from the Best Director roster. Also, Julie Delpy and Greta Gerwig were both in the running »
