Joseph Baxter Nov 2, 2017

The I, Tonya red band trailer has arrived, showing Margot Robbie as the scourge of the figure skating world, Tonya Harding.

Update: Here's a red band trailer for the film, that obviously you shouldn't watch if you have sensitive eyes and ears...

The upcoming dark/comedic biopic, I, Tonya, looks to capture the period when the Winter Olympics, and the skating in particular, captured the attention of the world. In this case with Margot Robbie playing the scandal-conjuring Olympic figure skater, Tonya Harding.

The first I, Tonya teaser trailer has now arrived, focusing on Margot Robbie’s onscreen manifestation of former American Olympic figure skating prospect Tonya Harding, whose dreams of grabbing the gold led to one of the most ignominious events in Olympic history. The sight of Robbie’s Harding performing a triple axel (Harding was the first American woman to successfully land one in competition,

We're Over the Term "Friendship Goals," but Miles Heizer and Mae Whitman Are Still It

We're Over the Term
If you watched Parenthood back in the day, then you're probably already a fan of Miles Heizer, but if you're only just starting to obsess over the talented actor, it's probably because you watched him in Netflix's 13 Reasons Why. While we love the fact that he hangs out with his 13 Reasons Why costars in real life - and has a particularly special bond with Brandon Flynn (who plays Justin Foley) - he's also still tight with someone in particular from Parenthood: Mae Whitman. You probably know Mae from her various acting roles from when she was younger, in particular a guest appearance on Friends and her heartbreaking role in Hope Floats alongside Sandra Bullock. Miles and Mae are best friends and roommates, and they often document their hilarious adventures and bond on social media. While some celebrity BFFs are all about staging the most glamorous photos and only sharing

Films people agreed to make to get their dream projects made

Simon Brew Oct 7, 2016

From Demolition Man and James Bond through to Speed 2 and Steven Seagal: the movies filmmakers took on to get other projects made.

One for the studio, one for yourself? That’s sometimes been the case when it comes to making movies, and we suspect – under the surface – it happens more than we’re ever told. However, every now and then, it becomes clear that someone has signed up for a movie, with getting the film they really, really want to make as the hidden reason. Such as in these cases…

Nigel Hawthorne: Demolition Man

The late, great Nigel Hawthorne wasn't much of a fan of the much-liked Sylvester Stallone-Wesley Snipes showdown, Demolition Man. In his autobiography Straight Face, Hawthorne called the experience of making the film "miserable", and wasn't impressed with the time lost on set waiting around for Stallone and Snipes.

Harry Connick Jr.'s Daughter Is All Grown Up at the Bridget Jones's Baby Premiere
Harry Connick Jr. had two very lovely ladies on his arm while attending the Bridget Jones's Baby premiere in NYC on Monday night: his wife, Jill, and oldest daughter, Georgia! The actor clearly took a page out of Patrick Dempsey's book by making the event a family affair. The trio smiled for photographers as they made their way down the red carpet, and although Harry and Jill's other two daughters, Charlotte and Sarah, didn't attend, Georgia, 20, looked more grown up than ever. The Connick family's appearance comes hot on the heels of the premiere of Harry's new daytime talk show, Harry, where he recently interviewed Hope Floats costar Sandra Bullock about her children. Hopefully this means we'll be seeing a lot more of Harry and his lovely family soon!

Sandra Bullock Talks About Her
Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick Jr. made fans cry with their heartbreaking yet beautiful love story in Hope Floats back in 1998, and as it turns out, the former costars are still close friends. Sandra, who is dating photographer Bryan Randall, stopped by the actor's new daytime talk show Harry as his first guest on Monday's premiere episode, and the two started catching up as if nobody else was in the room. After Harry asked how Sandra's two children, Louis, 6, and Laila, 4, are doing, she said, "Babies are so good! So loud. I have the loudest children on the planet. I don't know if it's the acoustics, but they're amazing. They're just good, funny souls." Sandra and Harry also shared a sweet moment together at the start of their interview when he told her that she's "just as stunning" as the first day they met. Considering the fact that she regularly lights up the room,

Harry Connick Jr. Takes His Southern Charm and Wit to Daytime TV

Harry Connick Jr. Takes His Southern Charm and Wit to Daytime TV
Whenever Harry Connick Jr.’s name popped up on the guest list for “The Late Show With David Letterman,” Eric and Justin Stangel didn’t worry about that night’s show.

The brothers — head writers for “The Late Show” for 17 years — knew that Connick was money as a guest. He was a favorite of Letterman’s because he was funny, fearless, and fast on his feet. The New Orleans native proved a natural raconteur who could effortlessly roll with whatever Letterman tossed at him over 21 appearances between 1993 and 2014.

Starting Sept. 12, those qualities will get a workout from the other side of the desk when Connick debuts as host of “Harry,” a syndicated daytime series that he promises will be unlike any other hour on television. The Stangel brothers developed the show with Connick, and the three share executive producer credit.

In the estimation of one who knows what it takes to last as a TV host, connick

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In September 2016, Including ‘Zootopia’ and ‘The Imitation Game’
Next month over on streaming giant Netflix offers up a giant selection of films of all stripes — modern to classic, animated to live action, Oscar contender to…not so much — and we’ve picked seven (well, really 11) that you should watch as soon as humanly possible, either for the first time or as part of a nostalgic little binge. Enjoy.

1. “Footloose” (available September 1)

If you’ve never experienced the original “Footloose” — no, not the one starring Miles Teller, though he is quite serviceable in a charming role — do yourself a favor and check out Herbert Ross’ 1984 classic. Yes, the concept of a town outlawing dancing is bizarre and outdated, but Ross and his cast (including Kevin Bacon in the kind of star-making role that’s so rare these days) really sell the concept, thanks to some serious drama and hard-earned emotion. But there is also dancing! It’s joyous and gymnastic and pure,

Margot Robbie to Star in Tonya Harding Biopic I, Tonya

Margot Robbie to Star in Tonya Harding Biopic I, Tonya
Margot Robbie is no ice queen, but she's about to play one. Deadline reported Monday that the actress has signed on to play figure skater Tonya Harding in the upcoming movie I, Tonya. Robbie, who is also producing the biopic through her LuckyChap Entertainment banner, is said to be taking it upon herself to find the film's director. I, Tonya's script hails from Steven Rogers, who wrote Love the Coopers, P.S. I Love You, Kate & Leopold and Hope Floats. Robbie, meanwhile, next appears in The Legend of Tarzan and Suicide Squad. Harding has yet to publicly comment on I, Tonya. Robbie is not the first person to play Harding onscreen, of course. Both Melanie Hutsell and Amy Poehler parodied her on...

Christmas With the Coopers review – more like box-ticking day

This nauseatingly by-the-numbers festive family heartwarmer is an unwanted parcel of predictability

From a producer of The Family Stone, the director of I Am Sam and the writer of Hope Floats (stop screaming at the back) comes this obligatory seasonal star-studded ensemble piece in which a bunch of A-listers plays out a string of intertwining plot threads, all in search of a heavily eggnogged family hug.

At the centre of the box-ticking maelstrom are Diane Keaton and John Goodman as the secretly collapsing couple struggling to give their disparate brood a last hurrah happy Christmas before finally splitting up. Ed Helms is the secretly out-of-work single father in desperate need of a job, Marisa Tomei is the secretly shoplifting sister trying to face up to sibling rivalry, and Olivia Wilde is the black sheep daughter, secretly trying to pass off Jake Lacy’s stranger as her boyfriend. So many secrets!

Christmas With The Coopers review: “It’s predictable, it’s schmaltzy, but it’s never offensive.”

Christmas With The Coopers review: You’re going to remember the faults rather than the rare good points. Christmas With The Coopers review

Hollywood loves a good ol’ fashioned family Christmas. It plays to the largest demographic and in terms of writing and structure it’s fairly easy to reproduce winning formulas and connect with the audience. All that needs to be done is to take a dysfunctional family, but one that truly loves each other despite everything, throw in a few cute and quirky kids, add in slapstick and Christmas frustrations we can all relate to, and make sure there is some romance. It’s predictable, it’s schmaltzy, but it’s never offensive.

For the most part Christmas With The Coopers follows this recipe to perfection, but instead of making a decent three course cinematic meal with a three act structure, we’re instead subjected to the ingredients

Gena Rowlands Is Still Surprised by the Acting Life

Gena Rowlands Is Still Surprised by the Acting Life
Gena Rowlands occupies an interesting position relative to her fellow Governors’ Award honorees. She and husband-collaborator John Cassavetes were true American independent film pioneers, establishing a genre in which the personal vision of a Spike Lee could thrive.

Yet for 60 years she’s been a mainstay on television (three Primetime Emmys) and in Hollywood movies, a major player in the showbiz arena where Debbie Reynolds is a reigning legend.

To Rowlands, it’s all part of “the great surprise” of the acting life.

“Working this long? I didn’t even think I’d be living this long,” she confesses in the roaring, throaty laugh instantly familiar from “Faces” and her Oscar-nominated chef-d’oeuvre “A Woman Under the Influence.”

She made a near-effortless transition from Broadway ingenue to grande dame. “A lot of women, when they can’t keep doing young romantic roles, don’t want to consider character parts and quit sooner.
