All the Proof That Kate Beckinsale Loves a Good Bikini Selfie

All the Proof That Kate Beckinsale Loves a Good Bikini Selfie
We may still be having a chilly spring, but Kate Beckinsale's recent slew of bikini selfies suggest that at least someone is ready for some major fun in the sun. The British actress took to Instagram on Monday to post her most recent selfie, which shows a very tan Beckinsale wearing a floral patterned bikini and rocking sunglasses while she stands in front of an abstract piece of wall art. Beckinsale playfully captioned the post, referring to the painting behind her, "Successfully completed the holiday Rorschach test without seeing a penis or my mother." We, however, are seeing the embryos from Look Who's Talking (thanks, Kate), or sunflowers... The...

Film Review: ‘Life on the Line’

Film Review: ‘Life on the Line’
John Travola is a lineman for the county, and he drives the main road — through very, very familiar territory — in “Life on the Line,” an uninspired time-killer that, while purportedly “based on actual events,” plays like a by-the-numbers aggregation of shopworn clichés. There’s a ’70s TV-movie vibe to the entire enterprise, an impression reinforced by the stock characters — including such staples as a troubled former combatant (in this case, an Iraq War veteran, not a Vietnam vet) and a courageous crew of troubleshooters — and an episodic structure that seems ready-made for commercial breaks. The narrative is so predictable that, when an outburst of trash-talking doesn’t escalate into a barroom brawl, it’s not just surprising, it’s pretty close to shocking.

And speaking of shocking: Electrocution appears to be just one of the occupational hazards facing the Texas linemen led by Beau Ginner (Travolta), a demanding foreman who

Oct 18, 2016

Alec Baldwin lends his voice to The Boss Baby - and here's the first trailer...

The last film from DreamWorks Animation as it passes from 20th Century Fox distributing its movies to Universal Pictures ownership will be The Boss Baby, a new comedy from the director of the three Madagascar movies. That director would be Tom McGrath, as it happens.

The set-up is a 7-year old boy, who is hardly bursting with happiness at the thought of his new baby brother. And before you can say Look Who's Talking boxset, we learn that the new baby can talk. And in this case, he has the voice of Donald Trump's current best chum, Alec Baldwin. See, we're doing politics and everything now.

In the nicest sense, the newly released first trailer thus far makes the film look very DreamWorks-y, Take a mooch and see what you think....

Jonathan D. Krane, ‘Look Who’s Talking’ Producer, Dies at 65

Jonathan D. Krane, ‘Look Who’s Talking’ Producer, Dies at 65
Jonathan D. Krane, who produced the highly profitable comedy “Look Who's Talking” and its sequels and was a frequent collaborator with John Travolta, died Monday. He was 65.

His wife, Oscar-nominated “M*A*S*H” actress Sally Kellerman, announced the news on Facebook earlier this week. Her manager, Bruce Tufeld, also confirmed Krane’s death to Variety.

“So sorry to report the sudden passing on Monday of my beloved husband Jonathan D. Krane,” Kellerman wrote. “Thankfully our twins Jack and Hannah are both with me. I am totally devastated.”

Krane founded Management Company Entertainment Group (McEg) in the late ’80s, which quickly rocketed to success with the 1989 release of “Look Who’s Talking,” which was directed by Amy Heckerling. It starred Travolta as a cab driver who starts dating a woman played by Kirstie Alley, the mother of a snarky, troublesome toddler, voiced by Bruce Willis.

How Amy Heckerling Got Out Of Director Jail By Making The Films She Wanted To Make

How Amy Heckerling Got Out Of Director Jail By Making The Films She Wanted To Make
Now approaching her fourth decade in the film industry, Amy Heckerling admits to not previously considering the possibility of a retrospective to show off her films. That is, until New York City's newly opened Metrograph theater approached her about a weekend-long look back at her work. "I never thought about it," she said. "'Oh, is that what you do when you retire and crap?'" Heckerling is, thankfully, not retiring any time soon. The filmmaker behind such modern classics as "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "Clueless" and "Look Who's Talking" has seen a career punctuated by some high highs and very low lows, a few of which almost ended her time in entertainment for good. But Heckerling is nothing if she's not resilient, and it's been both her ability to bounce back and her sometimes stubborn desire to do things her way that have kept her making movies (and TV,

Watch Kevin Spacey As a Cat in 'Nine Lives' Trailer

  • Movies.com
The very silly comedy Look Who's Talking became an unexpected hit back in 1989. Produced for less than $10 million, the movie ended up earning nearly $300 million at the box office worldwide. Much of that success can be credited to the brilliant idea to have Bruce Willis as the incongruous voice of the newborn baby Mikey. Hearing Willis wisecracking throughout the movie, much as he did in 1988's Die Hard, made it a memorable experience. Since then, many movies have endeavored to duplicate that unexpected success by casting funny actors in comic voice roles and the latest example is on its way to the big screen this summer. Nine Lives follows a straitlaced businessman (Kevin Spacey) who somehow is trapped inside the body of his family's cat. The first trailer gives a...

Veteran Actor Abe Vigoda Dead At Age 94; "The Godfather" And "Barney Miller" Among His Credits

  • CinemaRetro

By Lee Pfeiffer

Abe Vigoda, whose hang-dog expression and low-key mannerisms help propel him to fame, has passed away at age 94. Vigoda toiled in films and TV without notable success until director Francis Ford Coppola cast him in the key role of Tessio, a mob lieutenant in the Corleone crime family in the 1972 classic "The Godfather".  Tessio was one of the most trusted "employees" of the Corleone family but following the death of its patriarch Vito Corleone, Tessio is discovered to be planning the assassination of the new godfather, Michael Corleone. Memorably he is led away to his execution with typical understated emotion. Vigoda's stock in the film industry rose immediately and he became a popular character actor, appearing in such films as "The Cheap Detective", "The Don is Dead", "Newman's Law", "Look Who's Talking" and "The Cannonball Run II

Video: Nine Actors Whose Careers Got a Big Boost from Quentin Tarantino
What jumps to mind when you hear the phrase "Quentin Tarantino movie"? Hyperviolence? A bunch of different B-movies pastiched into something new? A lot of dialogue with a lot of bad language? That one "F" word in particular? Any of those could be right, but there's another thing many of Tarantino's movies have in common: a big, meaty role for an actor who's maybe in need of a career boost. In the case of the Tarantino movie currently in theaters, The Hateful Eight, the role is that of Daisy Domergue, a wily, foul-mouthed criminal played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Now Leigh hasn't been without work.

22 years ago today: 'Nightmare Before Christmas' opened in theaters
What's this? What's this? It's a "Nightmare Before Christmas" anniversary. 22 years ago today, the Tim Burton-produced film opened in theaters. The stop motion musical has become a lucrative property for Disney, but upon its 1993 release, the House of Mouse put "Nightmare" under its Touchstone Pictures banner because the studio worried it was "too dark, too scary" for kids, director Henry Selick recalled. "Their biggest fear, and why it was kind of a stepchild project, was they were afraid of their core audience hating the film and not coming, when in fact once kids found out about it, it connected with them as well as Tim's regular fan base." "Nightmare" fans looking for new ways to show their love of the film can check out Hot Topic's new "Nightmare" items, unveiled today.

Inside 'Red Oaks': An Eighties TV Show That's Not Ironic
"The Eighties were good to me," says Jennifer Grey, and considering she's best known for having the time of her life with Patrick Swayze in 1987's Dirty Dancing, that would make sense. "You know those people who rock that hairdo from the moment they got laid the most in their life? The Eighties are a bit like that for me."

You're Old: 'Look Who's Talking' Came Out 25 Years Ago

  • Movies.com
Do thoughts of your inexorable march toward death consume you day and night? Do you long to rid yourself of all reminders of your advancing mortality? Then take solace in this column, which is about a movie about a baby! A newborn baby full of life and promise! A newborn baby that is now 25 years old! Yes, Look Who's Talking was released on October 13, 1989, meaning that if you saw it in the theater, You're Old™. We're sorry. This kind of backfired. When Look Who's Talking is mentioned today, it's usually the butt of a joke, as an example of either the type of idiocy John Travolta was doing before Quentin Tarantino rebooted him, or of how a dumb, innocuous comedy can sometimes inexplicably launch multiple sequels. But 25 years ago, Look Who's...
