Broadway Musical ‘Allegiance’ Starring George Takei to Screen in Cinemas

22 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Allegiance,” the Broadway musical that starred George Takei in a four-month run last season, will come to movie theaters around the country in a one-night-only December screening presented by Fathom Events, the distributor of alternative cinema content.

“Allegiance” tackles the serious historical subject of the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, in a story loosely inspired by Takei’s childhood. Also starring Lea Salonga (“Miss Saigon”) and Telly Leung, the musical has songs by Jay Kuo with a book by Marc Acito, Kuo and Lorenzo Thione. Stafford Arima directed the production.

The dissemination of Broadway content on screens big and small is a market that theater producers have begun to explore with increasing frequency. For instance, “Of Mice and Men,” the 2014 revival starring James Franco, got a bigscreen showcase as part of the National Theater’s Nt Live series of screenings, and before that, the “Legally Blonde” musical aimed »

They were gathered around a hospital bed in Cedars-Sinai, the famous brothers and sisters of Alexis Arquette, who lay before them in a medically induced coma. Alexis — who had been born Robert Arquette and had been straddling genders for much of her post-adolescent life — had been battling health problems related to her positive HIV status for years. A Hollywood nightlife fixture and charismatic performer who stole scenes in films like Last Exit to Brooklyn, Of Mice and Men, Pulp Fiction, and, perhaps most memorably, The Wedding Singer, Arquette had contracted the virus over two decades ago, when

'In Dubious Battle': Venice Review

2 September 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Continuing his brave effort to ensure that future students of American literature can just buy the VOD equivalent of a box set instead of ever having to read another Great American Novel again, actor-director James Franco has moved from adapting Faulkner (As I Lay Dying, The Sound and the Fury) and McCarthy (Child of God) to Steinbeck with In Dubious Battle. The author's novel is the first of what would become Steinbeck’s Dustbowl trilogy (which also includes Of Mice and Men and Grapes of Wrath) and recounts a Great Depression-era strike that apple pickers in California organized to get

James Franco’s Tiff Hopeful In Dubious Battle Unveils First Trailer

30 August 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Franco is a busy man. When he’s not performing in front of the camera, you’ll often find the eldest Franco behind the lens, writing, producing and crafting a variety of features ranging from upcoming comedy The Masterpiece to Zeroville, the star-studded drama set against the Hollywood Golden Age.

Now, he’s headed to Depression-era California for In Dubious Battle – and he’s taking Nat Wolff, Robert Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio and Selena Gomez along with him for the ride.

Adapted from the little-known third entry into John Steinbeck’s unofficial Dustbowl trilogy — Of Mice And Men and The Grapes Of Wrath round out the trio – Franco’s feature is set to place a laser focus on the struggles of rural workers trying to make ends meet in the face of harrowing conditions. 

At the forefront of that struggle is Wolff’s Jim Nolan, a young recruit who »

Power Recap: Meet the New Boss

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Power recap and post mortem here.

If there were an Olympic medal for keeping your friends close but your enemies closer, Power‘s Ghost would take gold after this week’s episode.

Because — as our anti-hero learns during the hour — while he was busy dodging Lobos/trying to second-guess Angela/stopping Tariq from turning into a juvenile delinquent/wondering where baby Tasha is (Jk, because No One ever wonders where baby Tasha is!), James “Ghost” St. Patrick inadvertently hired one of his biggest enemies… and gave him an all-access pass to his professional and personal lives. »

Power Stars Talk [Spoiler]'s Brutal, 'Truly Unintentional' Death

14 August 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This post contains major spoilers from Sunday’s Power.

Tommy, what have you done?

Sunday’s Power found the burgeoning drug kingpin fatally choking girlfriend Holly during a rage blackout after learning that she’d hired the Jamaicans to kill his estranged best friend, Ghost. While Holly’s death wasn’t completely unexpected — the Starz series rarely rewards characters who adamantly refuse to stay in their lane — nobody thought that Tommy would be the one to take the love of his life out for good.

Why Disney’s firm grip on Star Wars is choking the life out of Rogue One

5 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on why Disney’s firm grip on Star Wars is choking the life out of Rogue One…

Recently I wrote the following statement about film franchises in my review for Star Trek Beyond:

Franchises are whores. They always have been—painted trollops far more interested in money than meaning. Any amount of love or passion obtained for a franchise film is a coincidental by-product of a business venture engineered to make a return on investment.

It feels like a good place to start this column.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the film I was most looking forward to this year. A Star Wars movie rooted in the world of the original trilogy but shedding all that Skywalker melodrama that the primary Episodic adventures is so focused on. I love the idea of Star Wars movies that carve out new creative territory. Whether you loved The Force Awakens or loathed it, »
