Blindspot Ep Breaks Down That Finale Casualty, Weller's Shocking Discovery and What Season 2 Holds for Jane

23 May 2016 7:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following post contains spoilers for Monday’s Blindspot season finale. Read on at your own risk.

It seems like just days ago that Blindspot‘s Jane and Weller were finally rekindling their romance. Y’know, sharing multiple kisses in the locker room, exchanging giddy glances at the realization that they could finally be together — all of the usual, sickeningly cute TV-romance stuff.

Oh, wait. That’s because it was just days ago.

Of course, after Monday’s Season 1 finale, those sweet memories seem like a lifetime away, and the climactic hour seems to have dissolved any hope for a #Jeller romance. »

23 May 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

To help celebrate, we're taking a look back down the long dusty road that Thunderbird traveled and rounding up some of the best bits of trivia from the iconic film. 1. George Clooney really wanted to play J.D. And boy it haunted him. Clooney auditioned five times and obviously did not get it.

Thelma & Louise Part 1: Girls' Trip, Interrupted

22 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

25th Anniversary Five-Part Mini Series Event 

Thelma & Louise

Directed by Ridley Scott

Written by Callie Khouri

Released by MGM on May 24th, 1991

Nominated for Six Oscars

To celebrate the anniversary of this bonafide girls gone wild classic from 1991, Team Experience is revisiting the picture, tag-team style all week long (like we did with Rebecca & Silence of the Lambs, y'all!).

While the film begins in Arkansas, we're taking an alternate route. Grabbing the keys to begin this road trip is our own dazzling female duo over in Los Angeles, Anne Marie and Margaret. - Editor

Pt 1 by Anne Marie and Margaret

Anne Marie: 00:01. Fade in on an opening credit sequence that pulls every single late 80s/early 90s cliche. Heat-baked street? Check. Twanging guitar? Check. Harmonica solo? Check.

Margaret: Based on this alone, I would definitely expect to be watching a serious action-drama about a lovable renegade cop

Anne Marie: I mean, »

Exclusive photos: Fran Kranz in new adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’

20 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hollywood, the Dream Factory, is the apt setting for the latest cinematic update on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Fran Kranz, Hamish Linklater, Lily Rabe, and Rachael Leigh Cook are among the cast in the new Midsummer adaptation. HitFix has an exclusive early look at the film. The new vision of one of the Bard’s greatest comedies is set in present-day Hollywood, a place where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists, and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead. The Athenians are Hollywood glitterati, the mechanicals (Bottom and his troupe of wannabe actors) are film students, and the fairies of the forest are hippies in Topanga Canyon, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains just east of Malibu. Staging or filming a Shakespeare project four centuries after the incomparable playwright lived and after countless artists have already mounted productions of his plays poses several challenges. (Yes, really four centuries, »

They are comparing my performance to Anthony Hopkins - Nawazuddin Siddiqui thrilled with the response Raghav Raman 20

18 May 2016 3:22 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

In Cannes with his new film, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui sounds ecstatic. Anurag Kashyap's Raghav Raman 2: 0 has had two sell-out screenings at the Cannes Film Festival over the last two days. And Nawaz is jubilant.

"All the international media loved the film. And they are saying the most incredible things about my performance. Hollywood Reporter has even compared my performance to Anthony Hopkins in The Silence Of The Lambs. It feels good," says Nawaz, as he gets ready for another screening of his film.

He is glad the international audience is getting the cultural context of the serial killer's story. "I was a little unsure of how they'd see the milieu and the time-line (the 1960s) when the film unfolds. But the audience here got the point. At the media interaction they asked all the suitable questions."

So far Nawaz has not found time to see anyone else's films in Cannes. »

Bates Motel: how the Psycho prequel went from good to great

17 May 2016 6:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

After a weak third run, Psycho prequel Bates Motel returned for a dizzyingly bold, satisfying and gripping fourth season. Spoilers...

Contains spoilers for Bates Motel seasons 1-4.

Over the past few years a quirky, violent, blackly comedic and very clever television series has challenged the notions of exactly what a reboot can be. Adapting an iconic horror property invited cynicism from the first announcement and while early episodes didn’t exactly blow people away, the show gradually came into its own, subverting everything that was expected from it in terms of both quality and its approach to the original work it was reinventing. In the process it gained critical and cult adoration, and continued the legacy of a beloved classic of the macabre with impressive aplomb.

I’m talking, of course, about Hannibal.

Hannibal, while dearly departed, carved a niche into the hearts of its many fans, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Magic (1978)

14 May 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s the eyes, isn’t it? Wide like saucers and twice as deep, they’re impenetrable. And the wooden leer of the wide open maw betrays them, separate and with its own agenda. Of course I’m referring to ventriloquist dummies, and the eerie spell they cast upon the viewer. The horror viewer, specifically; we’ll seek out anything that gives us a sense of unease. Which brings us to Richard Attenborough’s Magic (1978), a wryly creepy tale of encroaching madness and showbiz folly. (Aren’t they the same thing?)

Produced by 20th Century Fox and Joseph E. Levine (Carnal Knowledge) and released by 20th Century, Magic opened in November of ’78 in the U.S. and rolled out to the rest of the world in early ’79. Grossing nearly $24 million U.S. against a $7 million budget with positive reviews to boot, Magic was an unqualified success – with one of the »

Tonight's 'Banshee' had more serial killing — and one of its best scenes ever

13 May 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of the penultimate Banshee — and thoughts on recent episodes of the series — coming up just as soon as my boss catches me saying something inappropriate in the workplace... "Eventually, the lie took over. I believed it. I was the sheriff. I was a cop, and I liked it. I fuckin' loved it... Somehow, it just felt right." -Hood You may recall at the start of the season, I worried that the serial killer storyline was the one thriller cliche that even this show couldn't breathe new life into. If anything, my frustration with the arc only grew over time, as it just kept moving through the same beats every one of these stories has going back at least to Silence of the Lambs — up to and including the moment where it seems like the heroes are about to move in on the killer, only they're going through another door in another place entirely. »

50 Years of Fame! Inside the Twists of Fate That Led to Jodie Foster's Wild Ride as a Child Star

12 May 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Here's one from the what-if files: What if Jodie Foster's star-making turn never happened? The double Oscar winner, who's celebrating half a century in show business, almost never got the chance to make Taxi Driver, the movie that cemented her place in Hollywood history. Sure, we think of Foster as Hollywood royalty now. But the actress, whose fourth film as a director, Money Monster, comes out Friday, might just be yet another anonymous Yale grad if it weren't for fate. The 53-year-old first got into the business by a stroke of luck. Her mother, Evelyn "Brandy" Almond, toted 3-year-old »

Jodie Foster: Studios Are Scared of Women, Says Blockbuster Culture Harms Movie Industry

12 May 2016 6:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood’s current obsession with big-budget tentpoles is holding the movie business back when it comes to creating more films by and for women, Jodie Foster said at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday. Films that once traditionally starred women, such as romantic comedies and mid-budget dramas, are now migrating to television, as studios back superhero movies and special-effects driven action films.

“They’ll make enormous movies tentpole films and they’ll be all in, kind of like a casino bet,” Foster said at Variety and Kering’s Women in Motion talk. “That’s a really dangerous bet.”

Because of the enormous costs, studio executives are hesitant to take chances on new directorial voices. Film is, after all, very much a filmmaker-driven medium. There’s only so much control that a studio chief can maintain from a lot in Hollywood when a picture is being made several zip codes away. »

Jodie Foster, who is back at the Cannes Film Festival more than 40 years after she first appeared aged 12 in the controversial Taxi Driver by Martin Scorsese, recalls she wanted to be a film director from an early age.

The director of Money Monster, a financial thriller with George Clooney and Julia Roberts, screening out of competition, was the first candidate in the Women in Motion sessions sponsored by luxury goods brand Kering in a suitably swanky suite atop the Majestic Hotel.

Foster, 53, looked cool and elegant in a simple shift dress in pale pink. After starring in dozens of films, from Freaky Friday in 1976 to Silence Of The Lambs (1991), Contact (1997) and Panic Room in 2002, she has now decided to focus on her work behind the camera.

2016 TCM Film Festival – Field Of Dreams And One Flew Over The Cuckoo’S Nest

3 May 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

This past weekend, Hollywood celebrated the 7th annual Turner Classic Movie Film Festival, and this year’s slate of films did not disappoint.

Shown over 4 days and in multiple theaters along Hollywood Boulevard, the festival continues to draw bigger and bigger crowds each year.

This year’s festival treated classic film fans to over 70 movies and special guests, including Angela Lansbury, Faye Dunaway, Rita Moreno, Francis Ford Coppola, and Carl Reiner – just to name a few.

With so many films showing, its hard to choose what to see, but Wamg attended a few of the classics, along with some special presentations.

Field Of Dreams (1989)

The story goes that while Kevin Costner was filming Bull Durham (1988) he came across the script for Field of Dreams. Producers weren’t holding out for him because they assumed he wouldn’t want to do 2 “baseball movies” in a row. And thank god they were wrong. »

The 80 Best-Directed Films, According to the Directors Guild of America

3 May 2016 6:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With editors and cinematographers chiming in on the best examples of their craft in cinema history, it’s now time for directors to have a say. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Directors Guild of America, they’ve conducted a poll for their members when it comes to the 80 greatest directorial achievements in feature films since the organization’s founding in 1936. With 2,189 members participating, the top pick went to Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather, one of three films from the director making the top 10.

Even with films from nonmembers being eligible, the male-dominated, America-centric choices are a bit shameful (Kathryn Bigelow is the only female director on the list, and the first foreign film doesn’t show up until number 26), but not necessarily surprising when one looks at the make-up of its membership. As with any list, there’s bound to be disagreements (Birdman besting The Bicycle Thief, »
