She cut a striking presence in Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice and the two St. Trinian’s movies before dipping her toes in films across the pond, with Inception and Thor: The Dark World among them. Today her debut film as a writer and director […]

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: The long history of the ever-evolving “rom-com bitch”

22 September 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged that while romantic comedies are usually marketed towards women, they aren’t always so great when it comes to female representation. And in a new long-form piece for BuzzFeed, Bim Adewunmi digs into the history of one of the most problematic rom-com archetypes: the rom-com bitch. Adewunmi traces the history of the “Rcb” back to Caroline Bingley, Elizabeth Bennet’s catty romantic rival in Pride And Prejudice. But since those early days, the Rcb has evolved in a whole number of complex ways.

From the pure Rcb (Miss Bingley, Lara in Bridget Jones’s Diary) to the Rcb you love to hate (Fiona in Four Weddings And A Funeral) to the Rcb-heroine hybrid (Amy Schumer in Trainwreck, Sandra Bullock in The Proposal), Adewunmi offers an in-depth analysis of the ever-evolving trope. “It’s far more gratifying for the audience,” she writes, “if the obstacle »

Little Men's Jennifer Ehle: ‘I hope fame doesn’t happen to me’

22 September 2016 8:13 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor says her part in the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice allowed her to have the career she wanted – one that isn’t as important as her family life. Is her new film a step back towards the limelight?

Anyone looking to refamiliarise themselves with the BBC’s beloved 1995 TV mini-series Pride and Prejudice will discover there are hundreds of fan videos to be navigated online – a sea of fade-out montages, quotes and acoustic guitar soundtracks honouring Lizzie and Darcy – before finding an actual clip. This subgenre in its own right is testament to the appeal of Jennifer Ehle as the enduring defining Austen heroine.

Ehle, 46, has issued instructions to meet me in Central Park’s Chess and Checkers House, “under the pergola”, which itself seems to be straight out of a period drama. “People do seem to be still very affected by it,” she says when I venture that countless women – including, »

Forget Being a Tall Glass of Water, Colin Firth Is Our Cup of Tea

21 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

There are plenty of lovable English actors in Hollywood, but there's just something about Colin Firth that makes him extra dreamy. The 56-year-old first stole our hearts when he played Mr. Darcy in the BBC series Pride and Prejudice, and our obsession only intensified when he starred in movies like Bridget Jones's Diary, Love Actually, and Mamma Mia!. Aside from being a critically acclaimed actor, Colin is also a devoted husband. He's been married to his wife, Livia Giuggioli, since 1997, and together they have two sons, Luca, 15, and Matteo, 13. Colin is also father to son Will, 26, with ex Meg Tilly. If you can't get enough of him as his beloved character Mr. Darcy in Bridget Jones's Baby, look back at his best moments over the years. »

Pride and Partridge: Felicity Montagu's comedy gold with Coogan and Austen

15 September 2016 8:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

She played the loyal Pa to Norwich’s deluded DJ and the cake-scoffing vicar’s wife in Nighty Night. Now back on stage as Mrs Bennet, Felicity Montagu explains why humour is a deadly serious business

“I don’t want to scene-steal,” Felicity Montagu tells me. But perhaps she just can’t help herself, given the whirlwind of accents – Aussie, northern, estuary, Rp – that she uses to animate her anecdotes in our hour together. Certainly, she has pinched scenes from some of comedy’s biggest names – whether as Lynn, the tight-lipped, long-suffering Pa to Alan Partridge, or as Sue, the voluptuous, cake-scoffing vicar’s wife in Nighty Night. Then there’s that hugely satisfying scene in the first Bridget Jones film, where Montagu’s sloaney Perpetua – all Alice band, pearls and raised eyebrows – rises sharply from her swivel chair to witness Bridget quit her job. “Because if she gives one inch, »

‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ Brings Back The Charm Of The Original Movie [Review]

14 September 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s an unassuming charm to 2001’s “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” one that turned a relatively average rom-com into one of the most beloved chick flicks of the past decade. Sure, the jokes were broad, the set-ups were obvious and the love scenes were schmaltzy, but there was a purity to its lovesick convictions. Based on Helen Fielding’s bestselling novel of the same name, inspired loosely by Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” it was anchored with love and care by Renee Zellweger’s winning, Oscar-nominated lead performance and Sharon Maguire’s gently assured direction.

‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ Review: Renee Zellweger Revitalizes Her Best Character For a So-So Sequel

5 September 2016 6:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been 12 years since we last saw Bridget Jones on screen, and while it’s unclear if world has been crying out for her return, in a testing year, the beleaguered Brits could certainly use a dash of her carefree tomfoolery and sheer adorability. And so Bridge is back – not with a bang, but two in fact, of the variety that leads to a bun in the oven and a brand new dilemma.

In “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” Helen Fielding’s hapless heroine, indelibly played by Renee Zellweger, despaired of being a thirties singleton before literally being fought over by two men. In “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,” she struggled to maintain what she’d always wanted: A relationship. In this new installment, she is again single, but now 43, and wondering if she has lost her chance to be a mother.

Netflix Debuts First Look At Black Mirror Season 3

18 August 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Fans of British anthology series Black Mirror are in for a treat today, as Netflix has lifted the lid on our first look at the upcoming third season ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival. We say Tiff 2016 because Charlie Brooker’s techno-thriller will be in attendance at the imminent fest, screening two of the 13 new episodes bound for Netflix on October 21.

Of the selection, organizers have plucked the installment helmed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice). Entitled “Nosedive,” it features Jurassic World‘s Bryce Dallas Howard and Alice Eve in a satirical, standalone episode hailing from Rashida Jones and Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur. You can see how “Nosedive” is shaping up via the pics above, and already we’re sensing some riff on society’s obsession with augmented reality following the barnstorming success of Pokemon Go.

‘Black Mirror’ Season 3: First Look At New Images Ahead of Tiff Premiere

18 August 2016 9:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The British anthology series “Black Mirror” takes a satirical look at modern life, politics, and technology. Each episode features a new cast, a new director, and a new setting, but all take a skewed look at the systems and institutions that govern our reality, and decide on the normalcy of our surroundings. The past two seasons have garnered widespread critical acclaim and became even more popular internationally when Netflix added them to their site, and the third season will debut on the streaming site in October.

Hollywood: Women in Movies From Past to Present

11 August 2016 1:02 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For years, we have seen women in films portrayed as a supporting character. From devoted wives to hardworking husbands to sexually attractive Femme Fatales. Though movies like Pride and Prejudice, The Devil Wears Prada and The Intern portray strong female characters, it’s not enough. Take the recent Ghostbusters reboot, for example. It has an all-female cast, replacing the original cast of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Rick Moranis. Some say it’s a refreshing tribute to the original film while others disagree. Die hard fans say the film is abysmal (to an extent) compared to the original regarding character interaction

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 »
