Is Broadway Ready for 'Flashdance'?

16 December 2011 2:52 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Or, more importantly, is "Flashdance" ready for Broadway? The stage adaptation of the sexy '80s flick sunk in London, but it's headed to the Great White Way next fall after a considerable makeover.

The movie was directed by Adrian Lyne, who has quite a number of steamy films under his belt, like "Nine ½ Weeks," "Fatal Attraction," "Indecent Proposal" and "Lolita," while the script was written by Thomas Hedley Jr. and Joe Eszterhas, who is responsible for "Basic Instinct" and "Showgirls," among other things. It's rated R all the way, and while the London stage production sounds like it didn't shy away from the more adult aspects of the story, it didn't quite work either.

The producers are rejiggering it so it's less about arc welding and stripping and more about the love story between the two leads, Alex and Nick. The movie was more about Alex (played by »

Happy Endings Review: Muggings, Morals and a Merry Christmas

7 December 2011 10:42 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It must be noted that, as I wrote this, Happy Endings was a trending topic on Twitter and I couldn't be happier! "Grinches Be Crazy" was a true Christmas miracle. Why? Max found a heart! Plus, he really does look good in a chunky belt.

When Penny's charity event needed a last minute Santa, she was almost stuck with a smelly guy named Leslie from behind the Dmv. And let's just get one thing straight, you know there are totally tons of smelly guys waiting to play Santa behind the Dmv. Luckily for everyone, Max needed the cash and the jolly man with the white beard came to life... with a vibrating belly.

Of course, Max was probably drunk and never expected to give a crap, but then came Oliver. For the second time in one night, an ABC comedy brought me to tears. When his mom said that Oliver hadn't laughed in years, »

Everything you wanted to know about Thought Bubble 2011 (But were afraid to ask) – Part 1

25 November 2011 6:02 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

[Editors note] Welcome to an epic Three part rundown of this years Thought Bubble Comic Con from our resident comic expert Baron Fortnightly – if you ever wondered what attending a UK comic con was like, then prepare to have your eyes well and truly opened! [End]

World In My Eyes

I’d better state for the record that there is no way I can write an unbiased article about Thought Bubble, I have been attending for the last five years and have enjoyed it every year. I’ve always found Thought Bubble to be very well organised, with friendly and helpful volunteers and organisers who go out of their way to make sure us comic book fans, cosplayers and geeks of every clan have a very enjoyable experience; this year has been even better.

For me Thought Bubble is the perfect comic convention (with the exception of the legendary Jornadas de Avilés) and »

17 November 2011 10:30 PM, PST | PalZoo | See recent PalZoo news »

Film and television stars, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher said on Thursday they are ending their marriage after six years, breaking up one of the most widely followed May-December romances Hollywood has seen.The marriage between Moore, 49, and Kutcher 33, has been in trouble since late September when a San Diego woman went public about a brief affair she had with Kutcher, a star on CBS television comedy "Two and a Half Men", during a weekend of partying in the southern California city."It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life," Moore said in a statement.The star of films such as "Ghost," "G.I.

Happy 49th birthday, Demi Moore: Four underrated roles from her career

11 November 2011 12:17 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

As a birthday gift to Demi Moore, who turns 49 on Friday (Nov. 11), we'd like to offer this: After this paragraph, we're not going to mention the alleged rough patch she's currently going through with her husband, Ashton Kutcher, or anything else about her personal life.

What we're going to do instead is talk about Moore's career as an actress. "Ghost" and "Striptease" and "G.I. Jane" and "Indecent Proposal," you know about. But in between her big hits and body-transforming, headline-making roles, Moore has done some really fine work. Here are four roles that maybe don't get as much attention as they should.

"About Last Night ..."

A year before "About Last Night ..." hit theaters in July 1986, Moore and Rob Lowe had co-starred in the Brat Pack-iest of all Brat Pack movies, "St. Elmo's Fire," which despite what you may think you remember isn't a very good film. "About Last Night ..." was a good movie, »

Phillip Noyce’s ‘My Wild Life’ with Nicole Kidman Scheduled for Early 2012 Start

3 November 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] As Salt director Phillip Noyce weighs the options for his next move, one long-gestating project has begun to pick up steam. Late last year, Noyce took over the helm of My Wild Life (formerly titled Our Wild Life), a drama based the real-life story of Kenyan elephant conservationist Daphne Sheldrick, and Nicole Kidman began circling [2] the lead role this past spring. As Noyce and Kidman got busy with other things, however, My Wild Life seemed to fall by the wayside. But Kidman is now officially attached to star, and with Mandalay Pictures working on getting the rights from New Line, the biopic could be hitting theaters during next year's holiday season. More details after the jump. My Wild Life has been in the works since last year, with Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook) originally slated to direct. However, he jumped ship and eventually sued New Line for not letting him direct »

Phillip Noyce to Direct ‘The Arrangement’ By ‘Broken City’ Writer Brian Tucker

25 October 2011 2:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Since directing last year's Salt, Phillip Noyce has been considering a number of different projects for his next move. There was the submarine drama Hunter Killer, which eventually went to Antoine Fuqua [2]; the conservationist biopic Our Wild Life [3]; the remake of Jean-Claude Van Damme's Bloodsport [4]; and the sci-fi romance Timeless [5], which just cast [6] Liam Hemsworth in the lead. Now he's attached to one more. Noyce has signed on to helm The Arrangement, a Mandate Pictures thriller by Brian Tucker (Broken City) which is basically Indecent Proposal with more racial subtext. Hit the jump for more details. The Arrangement follows a married couple consisting of a white man and a half-black, half-white woman. When a wealthy black man agrees to give them a loan in exchange for three days with the wife, she winds up having to choose between him and her husband. Mandate president Nathan Kahane expressed [7] his excitement »

'Salt' Director Nabs 'Indecent Proposal' ... Kind of

25 October 2011 11:25 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

    Salt director Phillip Noyce will be taking on an Indecent Proposal-sounding script for his next feature. The Arrangement finds a married woman making a deal with a wealthy man to spend three days with him in exchange for "a loan." Ahem. After, she must choose between the two men — naturally. THR reports on what seems to be some kind of racial subtext happening in the movie, with the woman being half-white/black and the man she cheats with being black (hubby is white). We're not really sure what that's going to be about, but thought we'd pass it on.   The story comes from screenwriter Brian Tucker, who apparently “writes post-Obama stories that forces audiences to question themselves.” As THR points out...

He’s pondering a variety of projects before picking his next directorial job, and now Salt director Phillip Noyce has added one more enticing possibility to the list, locking in a deal to make The Arrangement.Brian Tucker, who also penned Mark Wahlberg/Russell Crowe drama Broken City, has written the script. It’ll focus on a married couple whose relationship is severely tested when a wealthy man offers them a bailout loan – in exchange for spending three days with the wife.

"He’s a remarkably talented director of genre,” said company president Nathan Kahane tells the Hollywood Reporter. “He’s also someone that hopefully will put us in the conversation with movie stars.

The Inbetweeners Movie proves the Brits have pulling power

6 September 2011 3:28 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The lads' comedy joins fellow British films Deathly Hallows 2 and The King's Speech to become the UK's third biggest hit of 2011. But there's a weak debut for new Brit on the block, Kill List

The winner

Another seven days, another £7m for The Inbetweeners Movie, as its cumulative UK total reaches just shy of £35m, leapfrogging both Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and The Hangover: Part II to become the third biggest hit of 2011. This unexpected turn of events means that all three of the year's biggest hits are British: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (£71.9m), The King's Speech (£45.0m) and now The Inbetweeners Movie. And although, of course, Potter is fully financed by Hollywood studio Warners, the other two films are independent productions.

While it's possible that this event is not wholly unprecedented, 2011 certainly represents the strongest year for British cinema in a very long time. »

Josh Hartnett, Gackt, and More Navigate the Hyper-Stylized Samurai Wild West in Fantasy Mash-Up Bunraku

30 August 2011 11:30 AM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

A hyper-stylized, genre-mashing fantasy actioner involving cowboys, samurai, and an axe-wielding Ron Perlman with dreadlocks isn't exactly what you might have imagined in a film with a title like Bunraku, named for an obscure, 300-year-old form of Japanese puppet theater rarely performed these days. But that's the film director Guy Moshe made -- starring Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson (Indecent Proposal reunion!), and Kevin McKidd as a dapper, Fred Astaire-like cold-blooded killer, no less -- and you've got to give him credit for his ballsy vision. »

Looking back at Disclosure

28 July 2011 5:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas and Demi Moore set the box office alight in the adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Disclosure. But has any film of the 90s aged as badly as this one?

There was a point in the 1990s where Michael Crichton's novel, Disclosure, was something of a must read. This was a book that dared to address sexual discrimination against men in the workplace, from that man who wrote the thing with all the dinosaurs. And thanks to that combination of factors, it shot up the charts and stayed there for a long time.

Also in the 1990s, Michael Douglas was riding high. Off the back of Basic Instinct, he was Hollywood's go-to guy if they wanted someone to have sex while wearing a jumper. And thus, when the movie version of Disclosure came together, in fairly quick time, he was the obvious choice for the male lead.

The surprising, and not so surprising, influences of Super 8

28 July 2011 12:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jj AbramsSuper 8 finally arrives in UK cinemas from 5th August (just over a week away), and we are really looking forward to it at Thn Towers. We will be posting a full review of the movie next week, but until then here’s a few of the surprising influences for the film, as stated by Abrams himself.

This is an interesting read…

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) “We Are Not Alone”

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

Jj says; “You think, ‘That’s not the way it should work’ but yet you watch it and there’s this incredible, undeniable, massively powerful story. The brilliance wasn’t just the way it was directed but the story approach itself; it was so unconventional and massive in scale and jumping from character to character, country to country and point of view to point of view. And it all works. »

Harrelson Hits 50

23 July 2011 7:16 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Three Cheers for Woody Harrelson - it's his 50th birthday today.

Born Woodrick Tracy Harrelson, Woody is best known for his breakthrough role as a dim-witted bartender in TV hit Cheers. He's since gone on to tackle a host of quirky roles, playing a serial killer, a country singer, a bounty hunter and even a zombie slayer.

Away from Hollywood, Harrelson is a family man and dad to three daughters, as well as a strict vegan and devoted environmental activist.

To mark his 50th, WENN takes a look back at his life with 10 fascinating facts about Harrelson himself. Woody, we salute you!

- His dad, Charles Harrelson, was a professional hitman, who was sentenced to life behind bars for assassinating a federal judge. Harrelson, Sr. unsuccessfully tried to break out of prison on America's Independence Day (04Jul) in 1995 and died 12 years later of heart disease.

- Woody turned vegan at 24 to cure his acne; he now eats only raw food.

- Born in Texas, he now calls Hawaii home and counts Kris Kristofferson and Owen Wilson as his neighbours. His house in Maui is completely solar-powered.

- During one madcap night in 1982, Harrelson was arrested for dancing in the middle of a street. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after running from cops.

- Harrelson met the love of his life, Laura Louie, in 1987 on the set of Cheers and made her his wife in 2008. Alanis Morissette and Willie Nelson performed at their nuptials.

- Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney is a close friend - the pair bonded over their shared passion for animals rights.

- Despite critical acclaim and two Oscar nods, his performance in Indecent Proposal won him the Worst Supporting Actor trophy at the 1993 Golden Raspberry Awards.

- Harrelson has long championed the legalisation of marijuana and joined the advisory board for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws in 2003.

- In a charity soccer game last year, Harrelson scored the winning goal in a sudden death shoot-out alongside teammates Robbie Williams, Mike Myers and Michael Sheen. After smashing the ball into the back of the net, the actor admitted the match in England was "the most terrifying thing I have ever experienced".

- He shares his birthday with Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, rocker Slash and infamous White House intern Monica Lewinsky. »

Clip joint: affairs

6 July 2011 7:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The beauty of film is that it permits us licence to experience things we really shouldn't. This week's clips offer a taste of extramarital forbidden fruit

Imagine suddenly no one had any inhibitions. And everyone grew a really thick skin. Film would be in trouble. For part of cinema's appeal is that it grants us licence to live out our wildest fantasies, in airbrushed form, without the repercussions that might result from real-life indulgence.

Small wonder, then, that affairs are so numerous on the big screen. They're replete in everything that people like at the movies: love, sex, drama, heartbreak. But the best ones are not necessarily those which form the backbone of a film – I've intentionally tried to avoid those whose titles give the game away from the off, such as Indecent Proposal and Unfaithful.

Community Review: Birthing Ben Bennett

29 April 2011 6:58 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Right off the bat, you have to appreciate an episode that gives both Shirley and Chang more than three lines a piece, not to mention Dean Pelton.

Something "Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts" achieved that no other episode has done to date is make me double over with laughter, at one scene in particular.

I know I've chided sight gags before, but the horrified look on Britta's face as she peered into the dark nether regions of Shirley's skirt had me rolling. I had to rewind it again, at least twice.

This was Gillian Jacobs' best episode yet, by a mile. Often Britta's Earth Mother-y ways come off more annoying than funny, but this time the role served her well when it came to delivering Shirley's baby. It also gave us another hilariously snarky exchange between she and Jeff:

Jeff: Look, backseat birther. Shirley's on her third kid. She »

Andrew Garfield cruising Back Roads

10 February 2011 1:28 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

The new actor playing Spider-Man is lining up his first post-superhero job. Andrew Garfield is now attached to star with Jennifer Garner and Marcia Gay Harden in Back Roads, a drama for Infinity Media. The movie is being directed by Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction) and is based on a novel by Tawni O'Dell that was featured on Oprah's Book Club a decade ago.

Garfield would play the son of a mother who has been convicted of murdering her abusive husband. The son must now play the part of guardian for his three younger sisters.

Garner would play a neighbor who starts a relationship with the son in the aftermath of the domestic violence. Harden would play the therapist that's trying to heal the young man's emotional damage.

What may be most interesting about Back Roads is that it will be the first film that Adrian Lyne has directed since 2002's Unfaithful. »
