10 Biggest Winners and Losers From the Democratic National Convention

29 July 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Philadelphia — Journalists who trekked to both conventions knew that the atmosphere of each party gathering would be different — what they didn’t expect was how much different they would be.

So much of the story at the Republican Convention was who wasn’t there; for the Democrats, the reverse was true, as the concern was whether the prelude to Hillary Clinton’s moment would be upstaged by President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, and others.

All of this may not matter in the long run, even if Donald Trump is well attuned to star power and celebrity (two years ago he actually tweeted dating advice to Katy Perry). Trump is running an anti-establishment campaign — and he’ll probably play up that fact in the coming days.

But from the angle of showmanship, this was a very successful convention, with some exceptions.

Winners.

‘Gods of Egypt’ Strikes Down ‘Deadpool’ Reign Atop Disc Sales Charts

8 June 2016 9:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Four new releases debuted among the top 10 sellers on the national home video sales charts the week ended June 5.

One of them, Lionsgate’s “Gods of Egypt,” bumped Twentieth Century Fox’s “Deadpool” out of the top spot on both Npd VideoScan’s combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The superhero movie landed at No. 2 on both charts, after three weeks at No. 1.

Gods of Egypt,” an action movie about feuding Egyptian deities, grossed just $31.1 million in U.S. theaters, against a budget estimated at $140 million. The film was criticized for its white cast but it went on to gross more than $142 million worldwide.

The three other new releases that made it into the top 10 are Sony Pictures’ “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” which debuted at No. 3 on both sales charts; Universal Pictures’ “Triple 9,” which bowed at No. 6, also on both charts; and “Race, »

Interview: Legendary SFX Artist Mark Coulier Talks Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

31 May 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In 1813, renowned writer Jane Austen published a book called Pride and Prejudice, which tells the story of the Bennet sisters, who are gussied up and married off to wealthy suitors, one by one. The only sister who seems to question this system is Elizabeth, the rebellious member of the family, who feels strong disdain for the system that treats her more like property than a proper citizen. In 2009, author Seth Grahame-Smith put a new twist on the old tale by creating a parody novel called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which loosely follows the same basic outline, but adds an entirely different obstacle to the tale: the living dead.

In Grahame-Smith’s story, the girls are not only fighting for the right to be married into regal families, but also battling for their lives on a daily basis. An outbreak has occurred within these humble streets, and now flesh-eating zombies »

Directors Defend Keira Knightley After John Carney Criticism

31 May 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A number of directors came to Keira Knightley’s defense after filmmaker John Carney slammed the actress during an interview with U.K.’s Independent, saying “I’ll never make a film with supermodels again.”

Knightley, who has amassed multiple accolades throughout her career, including Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA and SAG Award nominations, worked with Carney on the film “Begin Again,” alongside Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine.

While Carney praised Ruffalo as a “fantastic” actor and Levine for not being “a bit scared of exposing himself on camera,” he said “Keira’s thing is to hide who you are and I don’t think you can be an actor and do that.”

“I don’t want to rubbish Keira, but you know it’s hard being a film actor and it requires a certain level of honesty and self-analysis that I don’t think she’s ready for yet and »

Fans Defend Keira Knightley After 'Begin Again' Director's Unprofessional Slam

30 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Update: Director John Carney tweeted an apology note:

From a director who feels like a complete idiot. pic.twitter.com/vfO8m4U2Hl

John Carney (@jayceefactory) June 1, 2016

Original story:

John Carney needs to take his sinking boat and point it home, 'cause fans are not on his side this time. The director of the amazing musical film "Once" just decided to trash Keira Knightley in an interview with the Independent, singling her out as the problem with his last film "Begin Again," co-starring Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine. He has a new film out called "Sing Street," and while promoting the movie, the Irish director went out of his way to blast the Oscar-nominated actress. So Team Keira came out in force after the interview to blast the director.

Here's part of the interview, which includes the unprompted Keira insults.

What It's Like Watching Bridget Jones's Diary For the First Time on the Film's 15th Anniversary

13 April 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We did it. We finally lost our Bridget Jones's Diary virginity. Today is the film adaptation's 15th anniversary, and in honor of the 2001 British romantic comedy celebrating a milestone, we're dishing on what it's like to see the movie for the first time ever. Whether you're a long-time fan of Bridget Jones or a newbie to her smoking, drinking, and verbal diarrhea, this is an excellent opportunity to recognize one of the biggest rom com heroines of the past two decades. The movie is kind of like Pride and Prejudice in that Colin Firth is in it, his character's name is once again Darcy, and there are some back-and-forth jabs and misunderstandings between the two leads before »

Sony Pictures Chief Tom Rothman Says Movie Business Must Stay Committed to Originality

12 April 2016 11:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures has been through the wringer.

After a devastating cyber attack from North Korea in 2014, the studio suffered through a string of costly film flops like “Pixels” and “Pride and Prejudice” and Zombies,” many of them greenlit under the regime of former studio chief Amy Pascal.

But, at long last, Sony may be digging out from the wreckage. At CinemaCon on Tuesday, the studio presented an ambitious slate of familiar franchises such as “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and an all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot, with bold bets such as “Passengers,” a steamy space adventure with Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. The films, newly minted studio chief Tom Rothman stressed, were pitched at global audiences who are driving box office growth, and cater to many different segments of the moviegoing public — from faith-based crowds to family audiences.

“We intend to leave no audience unserved,” said Rothman.

The message to theater owners was clear: It »

'Bridget Jones's Diary': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Hit Comedy

12 April 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hard to believe it's been 15 years since "Bridget Jones's Diary" surprised the world with blue soup, ugly Christmas sweaters, an unexpectedly funny Colin Firth, a shockingly nasty Hugh Grant, and a stunningly perfect English accent emerging from Texan Renée Zellweger.

Since the film adaptation of Helen Fielding's novel hit these shores on April 13, 2001, the awkward but lovable "singleton" heroine has been a worldwide favorite, spawning a 2004 sequel and a long-awaited third installment, "Bridget Jones's Baby," finally due for delivery this fall. To celebrate the film's 15th anniversary this week, here are some behind-the-scenes facts you need to know.

1. Helen Fielding's worldwide bestseller started out as a series of columns in Britain's Independent newspaper that loosely fictionalized the romantic misadventures of Fielding and her thirtysomething pals. Fielding acknowledged that she lifted her storyline from "Pride and Prejudice." "Jane Austen's plots are very good and have been market researched »

How Birthday Girl Keira Knightley Balances Work, Motherhood and Marriage

26 March 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Keira Knightley's life could easily be mistaken for a fairy tale.  More than a decade ago, the brunette beauty was launched into international superstardom with her breakthrough role in Bend It Like Beckham, paving the way for a slew of other parts in major blockbusters like the Pirates of the Caribbean, Pride and Prejudice and Atonement, which earned her two Oscar noms and three Golden Globe nominations.  Knightley turns 31 today, surely celebrating a year in which the talented actress took on quite a few roles particularly different from her norm. Back in 2013, the birthday girl married her prince charming, musician James Righton, and last June, Keira traded film scripts for »

The history of humanity told by topless men: Mr Darcy's wet shirt started it all

8 March 2016 10:57 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The news of the shirt being exhibited in a museum reminds us that many historical dramas have been liberally garnished with shirtless men

It’s not often that a man with his top on becomes a sex symbol, but that is precisely what happened to Colin Firth when he climbed out of a pond with his white shirt clinging to his manly chest in the BBC’s 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. The shirt is so famous that it is going to be a part of an exhibit starting in August at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, about the similarities between Shakespeare and Jane Austen, the Regency’s most famous novelist.

Three's a crowd: have we reached peak James Norton?

2 March 2016 5:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The War and Peace star has already played a prince and a psychopath on TV this year; now he’s back sleuthing in Grantchester. But a performance pile-up can risk audience fatigue – and an actor’s whole career

Can a viewer have too much of James Norton? This would have seemed an unlikely proposition as recently as last month, when the actor’s performance in BBC1’s War and Peace was exciting attention. Some fans, who admire him as much for physique as technique, expressed regret that adapter Andrew Davies did not give Norton’s Prince Andrei Nikolayevich Bolkonsky a skinny-dipping scene of the sort he engineered for Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.

As clerical detective Rev Sidney Chambers in ITV’s Grantchester, Norton does strip down to his bathers. But the role also risks a different sort of overexposure, since, only 24 hours earlier each week, Norton is appearing »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie review: ironically, it has no brains

19 February 2016 12:02 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A Mr. Collins of a movie: fatuous, self-important, and nowhere near as smart or as elegant as it thinks it is. There isn’t a lick of wit to be found here. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): found the book deeply terrible

I have read the source material (and I hate it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Even more so than something comparable could be said about the unreadable “novel” it is based on, this is the cinematic equivalent of that Chinese-restaurant game, the one where you add “in bed” to whatever it says on your fortune cookie. Pride and Prejudice… and zombies. That is the entirety of the joke, and it’s just as stale as your fortune cookie. Of course, the germ of a potentially interesting idea is contained in this concept: Why do zombie apocalypses always seem »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies review – undead breathe no life into revamp

11 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This gimmicky reworking of Jane Austen’s classic uses deadpan decapitations to satire the prim costume drama but its gags are ultimately unearned

This laborious single-joke movie could well convince you that the mashup is the single most overrated thing in popular culture. Based on the 2009 bestseller attributed to “Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith”, the film is an elaborate spoof of Pride and Prejudice, taking place in an alternative England where the undead roam the land. The haughty Darcy (Sam Riley) is a renowned zombie hunter and Lizzie (Lily James) a dazzling ninja warrior. You get the elegant badinage, and then you get the people with half-eaten faces getting their bonneted heads blown off. It’s meticulously acted with deadpan attention to form – as well acted, in fact, as any conventional Austen adaptation – and it could conceivably be read as a satire of the traditional middlebrow tea-time costume drama (Andrew Davies »
