Over the weekend, the second annual Bentonville Film Festival was held in Bentonville, Arkansas, a festival which was co-founded by actress Geena Davis to celebrate women and other diverse voices in the film industry and media. The festival was capped off on Sunday with a very special event, a softball game that served as a reunion for Geena Davis and five of her co-stars from the 1992 classic A League of Their Own. The cast was also joined by Gina Casey, a former member of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

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. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Kung Fu, Sidney Poitier, The Maysles, Chantal Akerman & More

7 April 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

The “Old School Kung Fu Fest” comes to the Lower East Side this weekend, offering the likes of Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, and Tsui Hark, among others.

A print of My Neighbor Totoro screens on Saturday morning.

Frederick Wiseman‘s Hospital begins a week-long run.

Best Baseball Movies

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

The Bad News Bears

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

Who are we to argue with greatness?

After skewering all-American subjects such as politics (The Candidate) and beauty pageants (Smile), director Michael Ritchie naturally set his sights on the »

Emma Watson Responds to Being Called a "Feminazi"

8 March 2016 6:15 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sticks and stones may break her bones, but words will never hurt Emma Watson. Watson is currently taking a one-year acting sabbatical in order to focus on women's rights around the world. She founded the gender equality organization HeForShe in 2014, the same year she was appointed a Un Global Goodwill Ambassador. To promote the initiative, Watson shares the cover of Esquire U.K.'s "Women & Men" issue with Tom Hanks, her co-star in this summer's The Circle. "If you look at his career, a lot of his biggest movies—Big, A League of Their Own, Sleepless in Seattle—have been with female directors," she says. Watson praises him for how he discusses issues, "whether it be gay rights, »

Geena Davis Cast in Fox’s ‘Exorcist’ Reboot Pilot

7 March 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Geena Davis has been cast in “The Exorcist,” Fox’s reboot of the iconic horror movie, Variety has learned.

A modernized TV take on William Peter Blatty’s 1971 book and the film, Fox’s “Exorcist” is a serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil. Davis will play Angela Rance, who is described as regal and proud, but weighed down by stress. She does everything she can to stay positive and keep her faith even though her family is currently struggling. She can’t help but think if perhaps her nightmares about a demon are a sign of what’s wrong.

Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, Brianne Howey, Hannah Kasulka and Kurt Egyiawan are also series regulars in the drama pilot with Herrera and Daniels both playing the lead priests.

An Academy Award winner, Davis »

Fox Is Making a Drama Series About a Female Baseball Player That Better Not Include Any Crying

14 January 2016 7:38 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In news that may exist only for us to make A League of Their Own jokes, Fox is making a drama series about a female baseball player. The project comes from producer Dan Fogelman (Grandfathered; Crazy, Stupid, Love.) and Rick Singer (Younger). It stars Kylie Bunbury (Under the Dome, ABC Family's Twisted) as a "young female pitcher who defies the odds when she becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Fox has put in a pilot order — basically a commitment to air the pilot with a significant chance of a series pickup — for the drama, which is titled Pitch. Here's to hoping Tom Hanks does a guest arc. »

Breaking News: Mindy Kaling Likes Rom-Coms, and Here Are Her Top Picks

6 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This morning, Mindy Kaling tweeted a link to a list of her favorite romantic comedies, apparently an idea suggested to her by her friend (?) B.J. Novak (#It'sComplicated). Mindy posted her top nine, begging the question: What's the tenth?? There are a lot of Mindy classics on here, including You've Got Mail and Bridget Jones's Diary, but then, straight out of left field (ha ha!), A League of Their Own! Is that movie even a rom-com? Seems to fall less in the Romantic Comedy category and more in the category of Movies With a Strong Female League. Is it a romance between sisters? A romance between friends? A romance between Bill Pullman limping back from the war and Geena Davis? Decide for yourself. Here's the full list: Bridget Jones' DiaryA movie as good as the book, and in some ways even better because Hugh Grant and Colin Firth were better »
