Al Pacino headed back to Broadway in new Mamet play

16 October 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

After last appearing on Broadway in a revival of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross, Al Pacino is headed back to the Great White Way in a new work from the playwright. Pacino will star in Mamet's China Doll in fall 2015, production company Jeffrey Richards Associates announced on Thursday. Mamet said in a statement that the play concerns "a wealthy man, his young fiancé, and an airplane. The man has just bought a new plane as a wedding present for the girl. He intends to go into semiretirement, and enjoy himself. He's in the process of leaving his office, and »

Al Pacino Heads Back to Broadway in David Mamet's 'China Doll'

16 October 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The combination of Al Pacino and David Mamet left critics underwhelmed in the 2012 Broadway revival of Glengarry Glen Ross. But the sellout run proved impervious to lukewarm reviews, with the limited engagement grossing more than $14 million in less than three months. The same producers will reunite with the actor and playwright next season on the new play China Doll, which will begin performances in October 2015 at a Shubert theater to be announced. "For me over the years the relationship and the collaboration with David Mamet has been one of the richest and most rewarding," said Pacino

NBC’s Robert Greenblatt to Oversee Universal’s Expanding Stage Division (Exclusive)

7 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robert Greenblatt, the NBC Entertainment chairman who is also one of the producers of Broadway Tony winner “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” has added oversight of NBCUniversal’s stage division to his portfolio of NBCU duties.

Universal Pictures president Jimmy Horowitz, who will continue to lead Universal Stage Prods., will now work with Greenblatt to expand the division’s focus to incorporate all NBCUniversal properties rather than just its film catalog.

The growth of Universal’s stage arm comes as Hollywood as a whole has begun to take an increasing interest in Broadway, spurred by the significant revenue a couple of major hits have minted for studios. Last month Disney Theatrical Prods.’ musical version of “The Lion King” became the top-grossing single title of all time (at $6.2 billion and counting), and Universal itself has seen the global success of Broadway’s “Wicked” turn the title into one »

Watch Gene pitch a 'Die Hard' musical in the 'Bob's Burgers' season premiere

3 October 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Die Hard or Working Girl? That's the kind of question that plagues the young students at Wagstaff School, and Gene Belcher is in the middle of all of it in this exclusive clip from this Sunday's season-five premiere of Bob's Burgers. The episode finds Wagstaff's pupils competing to pitch up with what they think should be the big fall musical this year. Gene is set on adapting Die Hard, the movie's Christmas setting be damned. But his confidence is shattered when he finds out that his "thunder thief" and once-lover Courtney is pitching Working Girl—or as he calls it, »

Odyssey DVD Re-Launch 6 Classic Films Including ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’, ‘Julia’ & ‘Electra Glide In Blue’

16 September 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Thn are pleased to share the news that renowned independent distributor Odyssey DVD is re-launching in the UK and returns with a fantastic slate of cult and classic films. Including box office hits and all-star casts, the first six films are Grey Owl, Glengarry Glen Ross, Drums Along The Mohawk, Electra Glide In Blue, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry and Julia, released through September to October.

Up first is the still astonishingly-impressive Glengarry Glen Ross (1992), with the all-star cast of Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey, and Alec Baldwin. The acclaimed film is based upon David Mamet’s award-winning and follows a group of desperate real estate agents in Chicago. Think of it as a low-key Margin Call or Wolf Of Wall Street of its day. When a hotshot executive (Alec Baldwin) from the head office arrives and proposes a vicious sales competition, in which the losers are fired, »

Tiff: Michael Shannon on '99 Homes' and why he'll never have a mortgage

12 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you’re a middle-class American with a mortgage and children, 99 Homes is a horror film, scarier than Halloween and Saw combined. The movie, which debuted in Venice and is looking for distribution at this week’s Toronto Film Festival, stars Andrew Garfield as Nash, a Florida construction worker circa 2006. Out of work and underwater on his mortgage during the housing meltdown, he’s evicted from his family home—along with his mother (Laura Dern) and young son (Noah Lomax). It’s the nightmare scenario: Police knock on the front door and give them two minutes to pack their essentials »

Al Pacino on Greta Gerwig, Burger-Flipping and Barry Levinson’s ‘The Humbling’

8 September 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “The Humbling,” one of his two new movies (along with “Manglehorn”) having their North American premieres at the Toronto Film Festival, Al Pacino plays a legendary actor in career freefall. But talk to Pacino for a while about his characters and his craft, and it’s clear that one needn’t harbor any concerns about life imitating art.

When he first read the script for “The Humbling,” which was adapted by Buck Henry and Michael Zebede from the Philip Roth novel, Pacino called the movie’s director, Barry Levinson, and told him he thought the only way to play the role was to find the humor in it. “I can’t help it: it struck me as funny,” Pacino recalls over lunch at Toronto’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel. “This idea of an actor who’s been doing this his whole life wanting to quit because he’s lost his talent »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Eternal 'Expendables:' Mma Fighters Battle to Break Through in Hollywood

15 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of Guardians of the Galaxy's theatrical release, I wrote about the Curse of Tor Johnson, named after the old-school wrestler (and Ed Wood muse) who may have also been responsible for 50 years of terrible performances from professional wrestlers.

Since I wrote for WWE's Monday Night Raw for about six months, I wondered if the presence of Dave Bautista, a former champion, would jinx Guardians' box-office mojo. Three weeks into its theatrical run (and more than $175 million in receipts later), it's safe to say the Curse has been broken. »

10 Cartoon Voices That Are Actually Impressions of Other Actors

24 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In music there are only 12 notes, so it's no wonder so many songs sound the same. But what about someone's voice? The way someone speaks is not bound by any kind of scale or music theory, rather it's the sum a person’s upbringing, their physicality, and their personality. So why do so many cartoon characters sound so eerily familiar? In this list we highlight 10 cartoon characters whose voices (and often their likenesses) are based on other actors. We also mention 5 other cartoon voices that are impressions in the bonus sections of related entries. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, these actors have been thoroughly praised by some of the best.

“Haht” of Gold: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Actors from Massachusetts

11 July 2014 1:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is not too shabby in what the Northeast (New England) part of the United States has produced in terms of past and present actors/actresses making their show business dreams come true. Film careers can be a lot like ice cubes–they start out solid and cool but if you sit around in stagnation your efforts and hard work can melt away before one’s very eyes. Certainly no one can accuse this talented crop of thespians of being one-hit wonders on the big screen. After all, one does not become a recipient of an Academy Award by just sheer luck and charitable fortune.

As a native Bostonian and life long New Englander, I felt compelled to spotlight those Massachusetts-born and bred actors from the same region that had ultimate success on the big screen in winning the Oscar for their acting achievement and contribution to the motion picture industry. »

The 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year

17 June 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

50-4140-3130-2120-1110-1

Now that the TV season is over, awards season is about to begin. We’ve watched every minute of every episode of the finest shows from the past year to determine the most impressive scene from each series. It was a task as daunting as it was time-consuming (you try to pick just one “best” scene from Breaking Bad, or Game of Thrones), but we came away with our list, and we’re ready for you to disagree with the majority of it.

The clips, and our explanations, are below. Emmy voters, you’ll want to take notes. »

Watch This Brilliant Glengarry Glen Ross And Wolf Of Wall Street Trailer Splice

18 April 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When it comes to the masters of profanity, there are three people at the top of the heap: Armando Iannucci, Martin Scorsese, and David Mamet. Mamet in particular made a name for his sweary dialogue in the play turned film Glengarry Glen Ross. It was a film full of vulgar words spoken by vulgar men, trying to screw each other over for a buck. Wait a minute, that sounds oddly familiar doesn't it? If you think you're having a little bit of deja vu from this trailer, courtesy of Indiewire, then you might be right. Vimeo user/editor Richard Trammell crafted this revamped look at greed in the 80's by pairing it with the soundtrack to a trailer also about greed in the 80's. The Wolf of Wall Street just won't go away, even this long after the Academy handed down its decisions, and this trailer is a welcome addition »

'Glengarry Glen Ross' Has New Life in 'Wolf of Wall Street' Style Trailer

18 April 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In case you didn't know, The Wolf of Wall Street is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD, so if three hours in a movie theater was just too much to enjoy this Martin Scorsese directed masterpiece (my favorite film of 2013), now you can enjoy in the comfort of your home. Previously, we highlighted a great trailer mash-up that turned It's a Wonderful Life into The Wolf of Bedford Falls. Now another fantastic business-based drama gets the same treatment with footage of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross being edited together in the same style as the initial teaser trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street. It's awesome. Watch now! Richard Trammell's Wolf of Wall Street / Glengarry Glen Ross trailer mash-up (via The Playlist): Aside from the fantastic job editing this trailer, one of the more amusing parts to me is the casual use of the f-bomb throughout, but »

Votd: ‘Space Jam’ Live Read Featuring Blake Griffin, Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll And Others

Generally when a group puts on a live read, they pick a script of reverence. An Oscar-winner like The Usual Suspects, a classic comedy like Groundhog Day or Ghostbusters, maybe a stage masterpiece like Glengarry Glen Ross. When Funny or Die does it, they go a little out of the box. They do Space Jam. Michael […]

Tell Me, What’s the Purpose of Film Critics?

13 April 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

Already a comment on critics, author Tom Shone (writer of the brilliant book Blockbuster: How the Jaws and Jedi Generation Turned Hollywood into a Boom-town) writes for The Guardian about the different approaches to film criticism highlighted in the past week:

“Hollywood needs policing on its weaknesses, not its strengths. And what is neglected in today’s film culture and could most do with lionization is the not the director’s art but the producer’s – that all-too-rare ability to corral together a loose, combustible, creative team required to draw the lightning strike of a great movie.”

Read the full article here.

Matt Zoller Seitz claims critics need to explain “where the camera goes” and crucially “why it goes there”, hinting at a more analytical, interpretive understanding of a film. Why does the camera float across space rather than cutting away in Gravity? »

Liev Schreiber: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

11 April 2014 5:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

It’s safe to say that Liev Schreiber isn’t the most famous actor in Hollywood, nor is he the most obviously successful or instantly recognisable; he’s the sort of guy who turns up now and again, usually when you least expect it, delivering fine and competent performances on an array of different projects. Known for his rugged good looks and gruff voice, he fits the bill as bonafide action hero, stoic protagonist, terrifying antagonist, or – better – a character in that “grey” area.

Aside from his film work, Schreiber is also a talented and acclaimed stage actor, and has won praise for his work in the plays of Mr. William Shakespeare. “He has a swiftness of mind,” the New York Times wrote, “which convinces the audience that language is being coined in the moment. His speech, unlike that of the merely adequate supporting cast, feels lived rather than learned. »

Kevin Spacey Regales the Crowd With 20-Minute Speech at Museum of the Moving Image Tribute

10 April 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Who is Kevin Spacey? The man’s talent has more facets than a diamond,” said Chazz Palminteri at Museum of the Moving Image’s salute to the “House of Cards” actor Wednesday night on the Upper East Side.

As clips played from some of his most standout works like “The Negotiator,” “American Beauty” and “The Usual Suspects,” Spacey said he had not seen them since the actual screening of the film. He also noted a scene from “Glengarry Glen Ross” with his “friend, mentor and father figure,” Jack Lemmon, whom he credits as the impetus for moving to New York and becoming an actor.

Likewise, Penn Badgley said Spacey offered the same sort of guidance during the filming of “Margin Call” when Badgley was 24.

“Having him around was just very inspirational for somebody young and kind of like sort of lackadaisical,” Badgley said of himself during the cocktail hour at the 583 Park Ave. »
