The big animated films of 2015

15 December 2014 6:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for a handy guide to 2015's biggest animated movies, from Shaun The Sheep to Minions and Peanuts? Then step this way...

There have been far better years for family entertainment, and for animated films, than 2014. Whilst there have been highlights - Paddington, The Wind Rises, How To Train Your Dragon 2, The Boxtrolls - the mix of material on offer hasn't particularly sparkled.

A quick glance at the 2015 release schedule suggests, to a degree, the same, with some notably absentees from the year's releases. And yet as we dug deeper for our traditional look ahead at the year's animated films, there might just be some real treats here. Starting with this one...

Strange Magic

Let's start with one of the wildcards. A film that only recently arrived on the 2015 release schedules is Strange Magic, which belatedly marks the feature directing debut for Gary Rydstrom.

With the nation still reeling from Trixie’s shock departure, the five remaining contestants performed two dances each. Who made it through to the grand final?

7.56pm GMT

So that’s it from me until the Grand Final, thank you as ever for joining in and being entirely brilliant in the comment box.

Join me from 6.30pm next Saturday for the first part of the final – we’ll hang some streamers down below and make it a party.

So that means we have our four final couples – Mark and Karen, Caroline and Pasha, Frankie and Kevin and Simon and Kristina. Caroline is looking like the favourite to win, but that’s by no means a done deal – it’s going to be a cracking final, I reckon.

So it’s goodbye to Jake the Snake and his amazing shimmying hips. Am not surprised, but would have »

George Clooney & Bennett Miller Team For TV Show About 1990s Movie Industry; James Ponsoldt Goes Fracking

12 December 2014 1:31 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

My friends, we truly are living in a golden age of television. Programming these days is often better than anything playing in cinemas. Once considered almost the end—or truly just the beginning—of a Hollywood heavyweight’s career, any negative stigma that might have once existed about slumming it in television is gone. Long gone. A-List celebs routinely devote years of their lives to headlining weekly shows. Many cross mediums, appearing both in television and film in the same year. And we have some exciting news on leading men poised to return to the small screen. George Clooney, who rose to national-stardom as Dr. Doug Ross in NBC’s long lived primetime hospital drama, “ER,” hopes to return with an hour-long comedy-drama about the movie business, seen from the eyes of executives managing it in the 1990s. Though the show hasn’t yet been picked up yet, it has some solid players involved. »

Which A-List Actor Was Jaleel White’s Basketball Buddy?

11 December 2014 1:15 PM, PST | | See recent news »

On Big Morning Buzz Live, Jaleel White revealed that he balled with George Clooney in the `90s. He told Nick Lachey about playing basketball with the former ER star, and the suave actor’s best moves on the court.

“I had a basketball hoop for years in the alley right next to [Family Matters’] stage and ER shot right next door to us.” said White. “And one day a teamster came out to us and said, ‘Hey, do you mind if we take your basket and take it out in the middle so that both shows can play.’” White agreed, but then no one realized he had the hoop first. “Within a week, people were like, ‘Aw man, you should come play on George Clooney’s basket!’”

White wasn’t fazed and gave Clooney props. “George is a very good Horse player. I’m sure he’s tired of me talking about it. »

George Clooney and Bennett Miller Developing Drama Series About the 1990s Movie Business

11 December 2014 12:49 PM, PST | | See recent news »

George Clooney did plenty of work in the world of television before breaking out in a big way with NBC’s ER in the mid 1990s, and now it appears that he’s keen on spearheading a TV series of his own.  Vulture reports that Clooney has teamed up with Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller and Rescue Me creator Peter Tolan to develop a one-hour comedic drama series that will “explore the movie business of the early 1990s.”  That is one hell of a creative trio behind-the-scenes, and the early 1990s is a fruitful period to explore.  It marked a turning point for the film business, as the studio-driven commercial projects of the late 1980s were threatened by the booming independent film movement with folks like Quentin Tarantino and Steven Soderbergh leading the charge.  More after the jump. Per Vulture, the currently untitled TV project is described as a dark comedy »

30 years since Gremlins: Stars of the Christmas cult classic then and now

9 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.

The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.

Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.

The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is

currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:

Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

Postmortem: Castle Boss Breaks Down That Not-So-Merry Christmas Cliff-Hanger

8 December 2014 11:00 PM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Monday's Castle. Read at your own risk.]

Castle's midseason finale may have been a Christmas episode, but there wasn't a lot of holiday cheer.

After an ER doctor is shot on the street by a man in a Santa suit, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) quickly realize the victim may have been a doctor for the mob. During the twisty tale, Castle (somewhat against his will) becomes a blood brother with mob boss Dino Scarpella (Paul Ben-Victor), who urges (threatens?) Castle to help prove the innocence of the key suspect, Christopher Carlucci (Vincent Spano).

Will Julianna Margulies ('The Good Wife') reclaim title as SAG's most awarded actor?'

Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") gets the best odds to win Best TV Drama Actress at the SAG Awards according to our racetrack odds. It would be her third win for "The Good Wife" and her ninth win overall. That would put her back on top as SAG's most honored performer. -Break- Gold Derby Emmy Mvp: Matt Czuchry gives arresting 'Good Wife' performance Her eight wins are still the most of any actress at the event, but in 2012 Alec Baldwin tied her record.

It Takes Balls To Drive A Truck On Chicago Film Sets, Lawsuit Claims

5 December 2014 3:44 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In Saudi Arabia, women aren’t allowed to drive cars. In Chicago, women aren’t allowed to drive trucks—at least not on movie sets. That’s according to a lawsuit filed against Chicago Teamsters Local 727 that claims no woman has been hired to drive a truck on a union film or TV show shot in the Windy City in the local’s 75-year history. That’s tens of thousands of jobs, hundreds of thousands of days worked.

In 2010, Maura Anne Stuart made history by becoming the first female admitted Local 727’s Movie/Trade Show division. Three years later, she filed a sex-discrimination lawsuit against the union claiming she had been shut out of breaking into its Movie/Trade Show Division for several years. The suit was thrown out by a U.S. District Court judge but was recently reinstated by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The trial could begin sometime next year. »

George Clooney Brings Back His '90s Look - and Shows Some Leg!

4 December 2014 5:32 PM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

George Clooney isn't afraid to put his stems on display. On Thursday, the actor filmed scenes for Hail, Caesar! that required him to don a revealing Roman soldier costume. George was a good sport about the whole thing, busting out in laughter while chatting up the crew. With his hair styled like Mark Antony (you know, the Roman general, not the modern-day singer), it's impossible not to look at the pictures and think about his early ER days. George has been hard at work following his picture-perfect wedding to Amal Alamuddin. Most recently, George hit the Downton Abbey set to film a special cameo. Keep reading to see George's new pictures, and stay tuned for more set pictures of the Coen brothers's upcoming project as production continues! »
