Read More:Nick Hornby Kicks Off BAFTA and BFI Screenwriter's Lecture Series With Honest Discussion About His Place in Hollywood As part of the BAFTA & BFI Screenwriters' Lecture Series, Nancy Meyers followed Nicky Horby and Andrew Bovell to offer audience members an inside look at her life's work and what it means to her to be a writer first. Meyers opened her talk claiming that her passport notes her profession as "writer," therefore, that is her true calling. Cheering up cinemas since the early 1980s, Meyers is responsible for the hit films "Father of the Bride," "The Parent Trap," "What Women Want," "Something's Gotta Give," "The Holiday," "It's Complicated" and the newly released "The Intern." Safe to say that Meyers knows how to flip a script into a film, and moreover, how to keep theaters packed. Even though Meyers has such an extensive resume in the industry, she doesn't see herself. »

Directed by Nancy Meyers
Nancy Meyers makes romantic comedies for adults. She started directing in 1997 with The Parent Trap and in years since her films have grossed more than $1 billion dollars. Her films bear her mark like that of any auteur; though, her name doesn’t get mentioned as often as the Coens, Quentin Tarantino or Spike Lee. Her stories are long on love and work, but short when it comes to conflict. The Intern shakes up that formula by focusing less on love, and, instead, tells some truths about the 21st Century workplace.
After amassing a healthy sum of money to live off of; Ben (Robert DeNiro) realizes that retirement is not the gift he hoped it would be. 40 successful years in middle-management and his marriage defined him, now, that part of his life is over. Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway) runs »

That's the Lindsay Lohan we love to see! It's been almost two decades since Lilo stole our hearts in "The Parent Trap," playing the role of twins Hallie Parker and Annie James. It seems the 29-year-old actress is feeling nostalgic about her iconic role -- she took to Instagram on Tuesday to pay homage to the 1998 family flick! "Spa week really does wonders!" Lohan captioned the sweet snapshot, where she looks nearly identical to her 11-year-old self. Yep, we're still seeing double. She still has that signature red hair, those adorable freckles and that shy smile! Lindsay has been spending some fun in the sun this week, posting a series of bikini-clad selfies from her vacation overseas. "Smile.Swim.Sunscreen.Shine," she wrote along with a summery snap from the deck of a boat. The actress looks very relaxed as she gazes up at the sky while wearing a blue top and a floral sarong. »

Right now is prime summer-camp time. No doubt there is some kid not far from you who is currently attending some kind of summer camp, making it the perfect time to reflect on past summer camps -- like the ones we've visited on the big screen. There are classics that show us the traditional camp experiences, including Meatballs, Little Darlings, Meatballs II, The Parent Trap, Meatballs 4, Ernest Goes to Camp and Lolita, as well as the horror flicks Friday the 13th and its sequels, and Sleepaway Camp and its sequels. There's also Indian Summer for those adults who are nostalgic for the old camp (and camp-movie) days. Now, though, there are all kinds of niche overnight camps, and...

Does Hollywood try to remake/sequelize/franchise-extend every single one of its successful movies? Sometimes it feels that way, but there’s a little more nuance to studio practices than that. If you’re looking for meaning in this summer’s blockbuster season – not always easy – you could call it Dr. JurassicMax or How Hollywood Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Reboot. Rebooting franchises isn’t as common, well-received, or lucrative as you might think. Today let’s look briefly at the history of the reboot – and how this summer changed it.
First, what technically counts as a reboot? One school would say that anytime the cast shuffles, it’s a reboot, meaning we’re now on the second reboot (and third iteration) of Spider-Man films. That’s pretty rare; far more often, duration between films is the deciding factor, and it just doesn’t feel right to slap »

Rose McGowan has, over the course of her career, become a recognisable name both in film for her work in features such as Planet Terror and Jawbreakers, and television for her work in shows such as Charmed. The 2014 Sundance Film Festival, however, saw McGowan step behind the camera for the first time, as she unveiled her directorial debut short film.
Titled Dawn, the short is written by the duo of M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller, and stars God Bless America‘s Tara Lynne Barr as the titular character, with Hannah Marks and Reily McClendon co-starring. The synopsis is as follows.
Dawn is a quiet young teenager who longs for something or someone to free her from her sheltered life.
McGowan has now released the short in its entirety on Youtube, with this message
Dawn is a cautionary tale. We hurt girls with casual negligence. We change the »

Set for release in the Us in September (and on October 2nd in the UK) is the new comedy from director Nancy Meyers, The Intern. Meyers is best known for helming movies such as The Holiday, The Parent Trap (remake) and Something's Gotta Give, and in her latest, she's cast Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway.
The conceit with this one is that the film centres around a fashion website, one that brings in an older intern. Hathaway is the CEO here (one who rides a bike through an office, no less), whilst De Niro plays a widower who decides to come out of retirement. Much of the rest of the plot is revealed in the promo below.
The first trailer for the movie was released overnight, and you can see how it's all shaping up right here. »
Who wouldn’t want to be Anne Hathaway’s best friend?
The first trailer for The Intern has acting legend Robert De Niro playing that role as the two star in writer/director Nancy Meyers’ latest comedy. The film also stars Rene Russo, Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam Devine, Celia Weston, Nat Wolff, Linda Lavin and Zack Perlman.
The Intern follows De Niro as Ben Whitaker, a retired widower who decides to get back in the game by becoming a “senior intern” at a major fashion company, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). Before long, Ben proves himself a valuable member of the team and an important person in Jules’ life.
Meyers also directed and wrote The Parent Trap, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated, and The Holiday so the comedic tone hits much the same, even though they exchange a romantic relationship for a more platonic one. »

Hot Pursuit has opened to critical panning and unfavorable audience reactions today. The $35 million Action-Comedy’s 6% rottentomatoes score, lack of persistent marketing and generally-unfunny jokes in its major trailer all point at a financial loss for Warner Bros. But there lies the hope for women filmmakers in this article: this movie was still released amidst all the panning, the negativity generally-aimed at female filmmakers, and the recent backlash from the leaked emails between Marvel CEOs concerning the perceived lack of appeal for female superhero films.
The leaked emails remind us of the general sexist attitude towards female filmmakers, specifically directors. The major studios, including Warner Bros, nowadays produce and distribute just a few dozen films a year with an average budget of over $100 million. All those superhero and mega-expensive films we’ve come to love, hate, and blog about are the proof. By now, we’ve all noticed that a »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one. Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine? Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth? A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe? It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Tough break, LiLo! Lindsay Lohan suffered an embarrassing Instagram fail this week thanks to a mistranslated picture quote. The Parent Trap starlet, 28, shared a shot via Instagram on Monday, April 20, of a phrase in Arabic against a patterned background and an English translation below reading, "You're beautiful." Lohan posted the photo without a caption, but tweeted a link to the Instagram page with the word "Habibi," an Arabic term of endearment. Though Lohan has since deleted the Instagram photo, the Arabic text featured in the picture [...] »
Dennis Quaid lost his cool on the set of an unknown movie and TMZ has the terrifying Nsfw video. The actor verbally attacks his co-workers, and after a few seconds of watching, you, too, will feel personally victimized by The Parent Trap star.
“What the f—, keep going! I am acting here, and this d—head wanders on to my set,” he screams. “I can’t even get a line out until dopey the d— starts whispering in your ear, you’re not even watching anymore.” An unidentified man chimed in in attempts to calm him down, which didn’t go over well. “I am a pro! This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on! This is horse s—!” He then proceeded to call everyone on set “pussies” and “zombies” before a door closed.
Is this a joke? Or has the actor officially lost touch with reality? »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

My feet look red lol- had to take that out. Only real red is my hair. ???? A photo posted by Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) on Mar 11, 2015 at 4:18pm Pdt Oh, Linday Lohan. The Parent Trap alum attempted to enhance her booty in an Instagram post on Wednesday, March 11, and failed miserably.
