Andie MacDowell on Hollywood Ageism, Nude Scenes and ‘Love After Love’

25 April 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Andie MacDowell waited until age 59 to do her first nude scene. As a grieving matriarch trying to get over her husband’s death and re-entering the dating scene in “Love After Love,” MacDowell has several sexual encounters in the indie drama that leave her emotionally and physically baring all.

“I kept making a joke to everybody that I waited until I fell apart before I took my clothes off,” the actress told Variety during an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival where “Love After Love” is debuting. The experience left her advising her actress daughters, Sarah Margaret Qualley and Rainey Qualley, not to wait as long before shedding their clothes on screen.

“I keep telling my girls, ‘you’re so beautiful, you should just do it,'” she says with a laugh. “‘Go. Do it. Don’t wait.'”

Ultimately, getting naked on screen didn’t feel as vulnerable as »

Andie MacDowell Opens Up About Doing Her Very First Nude Scene — at Age 59

25 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After more than three decades in the movie business, Andie MacDowell is doing something new: disrobing on film.

At age 59, the actress shot her first nude scene for Love After Love, a family drama about a woman dealing with the death of her husband. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday.

“I’m not one to take my clothes off in a movie,” MacDowell recently told The Hollywood Reporter. “Not that I’m a prude or anything, but I think I grew up in a time where most actresses would get body doubles. I was always very »

Insidious: Chapter 4 To Be Pushed Back To 2018

21 April 2017 3:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Let’s face it, by the fourth entry in a horror franchise, things are usually getting a bit ropey. Jaws: The Revenge featured a psychic shark out for revenge, Leprechaun went to space and even the Alien series tripped over itself with the rubbish Alien: Resurrection. So, it’s probably not a good sign that Universal Pictures has decided to boot Insidious: Chapter 4 from its plum Halloween 2017 slot to January 5th, 2018, which seems like a release date for films the studio have decided they’re going to try their best to ignore.

Ordinarily, creator Jason Blum (and his production company Blumhouse), would have every right to be down in the dumps about this. But it’s unlikely that there’ll be too many frowns at the office today, as the slot has been given to another of their films: Half to Death.

The top 25 films (that people have seen more than 5 times)

19 April 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 20, 2017

What tend to be the highest rated movies, where the criteria is said films have been watched at least five times?

One aside in a recent piece I penned at this site questioned whether films such as The Shawshank Redemption – for some time ranked as the best film of all time by popular vote at the IMDb – were favoured amongst those who’d seen it more than one time. I was questioning whether the films we tend to salute as the greatest – rather than our favourites – are the ones we tend to watch time and time again.

In the same article, for instance, I highlighted Schindler’s List, an excellent film, but not one I see too many people watching on six monthly rotation. That doesn’t make it a lesser film, rather, it’s the kind of movie that I’d imagine most have seen once or twice at best, »

Andy Karl, the star of the Broadway musical version of the hit movie “Groundhog Day,” will miss more performances following the knee injury he sustained during Friday’s performance just days before the show’s official opening night. On the instruction of his doctors, Karl will take off four performances this week to rest and continue the process of recuperating from the injury, which occurred late in the second act on Friday and forced the cancellation of a Saturday performance. Despite his injury, Karl performed at both the opening night on Monday and at Tuesday’s performance, reprising a role that Bill Murray originated. »

Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor Hit the Red Carpet With Their 15-Year-Old Daughter

18 April 2017 7:07 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor's daughter is getting so big! The actor hit the red carpet with his wife of 17 years and their 15-year-old daughter, Ella, in New York City on Monday night. The trio attended the opening night of the Broadway musical Groundhog Day, which is based on the classic 1993 film. Ella, who looks so much like her dad, rocked a cute turquoise dress while posing with her parents on the red carpet. This also isn't the first time this famous family has attended a premiere together. Back in 2016, Ben, who recently opened up about overcoming prostate cancer, had the support of Christine, Ella, and son Quinlin at the Zoolander 2 premiere in NYC. »

‘Groundhog Day’ Broadway Review: Andy Karl, a Star Is Reborn and Reborn

17 April 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Need an antidote to the saccharine good-time, small-town vibe of “Come From Away”? You’ll find it in the inventive, acerbic, and thoroughly irreverent “Groundhog Day,” which opened Monday at the August Wilson Theatre. Original “Groundhog Day” screenwriter Danny Rubin, with much help from songwriter Tim Minchin and director Matthew Warchus, has successfully transferred his 1993 movie comedy to the musical stage; and in the process, taken even more swipes at the vapid, rodent-obsessed inhabitants of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Minchin and Warchus, being British and Australian, might have something to do with the show’s overall anti-Americana flair. They also bring a nice Dickensian. »

5 Reasons Why 'Fate of the Furious' Had the Biggest Opening Weekend Ever

17 April 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I will beat you like a Cherokee drum," Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson tells Jason Statham in The Fate of the Furious – which, it turns out, is also a great way to describe what the film itself did to the competition at the box office this weekend. The eighth and newest installment in the car-obsessed, pseudo-superhero franchise racking up an estimated, Nos-fueled $532.5 million in global revenue, including $100.2 million domestically and $432.2 million overseas. That gives F8, as it's been referred to, the biggest worldwide opening of all time, beating previous champ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

31 Scene-Stealing Animals in Movies and TV (Photos)

11 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Even when a the focus of a film or TV show is on its star humans, cameos and small parts by animals often grab attention away from headlining actors. Click through to see our list of scene stealing animals: Billy Crystal‘s character in the 1991 comedy “City Slickers” adopts a calf and names him Norman. Once Punxsatawny Phil poked his head above ground, all hell broke loose — at least in one of the seemingly infinite amount of days Bill Murray endured in the 1993 comedy “Groundhog Day.” The appearance of the cat in the season finale of HBO crime drama “The Night Of” was one of. »

Kevin Spacey and Kafka with cats: a closer look at Nine Lives

10 April 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Apr 12, 2017

Kevin Spacey turns into a cat. Christopher Walken. We take a closer look at the Kafka-esque comedy, Nine Lives..

“When Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from troubled dreams, he found himself changed into a monstrous cockroach in his bed.”

See related  Nintendo Famicom Mini: examining Japan's tiny console

So goes the first line in Franz Kafka’s classic short story, Metamorphosis - a tiny, existential drama subject to all kinds of interpretations since its publication in 1915. Even that famous opening line is open to interpretation, as this Guardian piece points out: did Kafka really mean that poor, unfortunate Gregor woke up as a cockroach, another kind of insect, or something else entirely? The German phrase he uses, “Ungeheuren Ungeziefer” loosely translates to “enormous vermin.” 

Whatever Gregor becomes, it’s something pitiful and helpless; he can no longer work, and gradually, he’s shunned by his own family. »

Mindy Lahiri is hanging up her scrubs.

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: The man who wrote Groundhog Day is living it

28 March 2017 10:56 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Just weeks before the opening of the new Broadway musical Groundhog Dog, Vulture has a very sweet profile of Danny Rubin, the original Groundhog Day screenwriter who is bringing this new stage version to life, too. It’s a story that could be tinged with bitterness; Groundhog Day is basically Rubin’s one claim to fame, and he has struggled to work within the Hollywood system after its success. Instead, Rubin comes across as affable, eccentric, and content with his rather odd career path.

Australian comedian Tim Minchin, who wrote the music and lyrics to Groundhog Day: The Musical, describes Rubin as “an incredibly gentle, sensitive guy, too good for the world he ended up in, too pure in his desire to write interesting things for Hollywood.” Indeed, Vulture’s profile is full of stories about Rubin refusing to play nice with the Hollywood execs who courted him after »

‘The Mindy Project’s’ Lang Fisher on Writing Mindy as a White Man in the Age of Trump

14 March 2017 3:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Mindy Project” writer Lang Fisher first wrote the episode “Mindy Lahiri Is a White Man” before President Trump was elected. In it, Mindy (Mindy Kaling) wakes up one morning to find herself in the body of a white man, played by Ryan Hansen, which opens her up to a whole world of privilege that she exploits to the best of her ability.

“I was honestly writing it during the campaigns… without knowing the results of the election,” Fisher told IndieWire in a phone interview. “I was absolutely channeling the fact that Donald Trump could do the worst possible things and get away with it. And Hillary [Clinton] had one email scandal and it tanked her. She’s the most capable person who’s ever been up for political office and people just hated her.
