Mischa Barton Sues Mother for Verbal Abuse, Breach of Talent Management Contract

7 April 2015 5:51 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Mischa Barton’s latest family drama isn’t on television, it’s playing out in her real life. “The O.C.” actress is suing her mother and former manager, Nuala Barton, for mishandling her career, defrauding her of pay and royalties, and exploiting her fame. Legal papers filed on Tuesday in the Los Angeles Superior Court contain blistering accusations of deception and abuse from mother to daughter, who began booking roles in films like “Notting Hill” and “The Sixth Sense” in 1993 at around age 13. “This action arises from the tragic tale of a greedy stage mother posing as a talent manager who, »

Movie Poster of the Week: An Index

4 April 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: 1965 East German poster by Fritsche for Il Posto (Ermanno Olmi, Italy, 1961).Six years ago last week I wrote my first Movie Poster of the Week post for Mubi, then known as The Auteurs. Since then I have written over 270 articles on all facets of movie posters from the sublime to the ridiculous and I decided it was high time I organized them. In the early days of Movie Poster of the Week it was just that: one weekly poster that I would briefly discuss with at most one or two others included for comparison’s sake. But even in that debut post, what started out as a simple personal anecdote about a poster I liked ended up with my searching for the designer, the print shop that produced it and the provenance of the photograph used in the poster. Over time, as my research has led me down longer and more intricate rabbit holes, »

Comic Relief was started by writer Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Notting Hill) and comedian Lenny Henry to raise support for families starving in Ethiopia.

To the surprise of everyone, Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean) made an appearance to kiss David Walliams (Little Britain) to help break a world record in “Most Kisses Received in 30 Seconds.” Popular sketches brought back Mr. Bean, the Vicar of Dibley, and Little Britain (featuring Stephen Hawking). Parodies of The Four Yorkshiremen, James Bond (featuring Daniel Craig and Roger Moore), and One Direction were featured. Liam Gallagher of the original Shameless was also named a national treasure. »

The 5 best performances by America's Sweetheart, Pretty Woman's Julia Roberts

23 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Molly Ringwald and Al Pacino made a Big Mistake. Big. Huge.  They were the original cast picks for Garry Marshall's Pretty Woman. The roles eventually went to America's newest sweetheart, Julia Roberts, and Hollywood's Most Eligible Bachelor, Richard Gere. Of course the "hooker with a heart of gold" comedy became one of the biggest and most iconic rom-coms ever.  In celebration of Pretty Woman’s twenty-fifth anniversary, we picked out five of our favourite performances from the Southern belle, Julia Roberts. Unfortunately, some of Julia’s best work – and yes, we’re totally including My Best Friend’s Wedding and Notting Hill – didn’t make the cut, but we still love ‘em anyway. »

European film funders warn EU from making “big bang” policy changes to copyright, authors call for fair remuneration

European film funders from 31 countries including the UK’s BFI, Germany’s Ffa and France’s Cnc have warned the European Union (EU) to avoid making any “big bang” policy changes to copyright rules.

The Association of the European Film Agency Directors (EFADs) issued a resolution today (March 17) declaring that it considered the current EU copyright framework to be “fit for purpose” as “it provides a strong basis for current business models to evolve in response to people’s changing preferences as to how they access films and other audiovisual works.”

The film agency directors suggested that “the priority of the EU should be the establishment of a level playing field ensuring equel treatment between all operators, a commitment to economic sustainability and engagement in the creation of local works.”

However, they stressed that “improving online cross-border access to European »

20 Cult British Films You Need To See Before You Die

13 March 2015 2:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Eagle Films

When one thinks of British films, what immediately springs to mind are the gentle comedies of Richard Curtis such as Four Weddings And A Funeral or Notting Hill or the image of Harry Potter. But British cinema is not all light romance or whizz kid wizards. In fact, since the early days of the medium British film output always been incredibly diverse, producing horror (through the legendary Hammer and Amicus studios), war, comedy, kitchen sink social realism and good old exploitation movies of every flavour. It also produced Michael Winner, but the least said about that, the better.

British cinema was, for decades, subject to the strictest censorship laws in the Western world (widely known as The Limp D**k Laws) which prohibited the flourishing of really interesting films for adults. Instead the intrepid cinema customer was treated to supremely unerotic ‘nudist’ films, followed by British sex films, »

From 'The Thin Man' to 'Dogfight': A broken-hearted Valentine's playlist

14 February 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It has not been an easy week. At the start of the week, we had our editorial meeting here at HitFix, as we do every Monday, to talk about both the week ahead and longer-term projects as well. For fairly obvious reasons, there was a fair amount of talk about Valentine's Day content, and I mentioned a few different ideas that I might write about, including one that I'll end up publishing at some point about Steve Martin. But even as I pitched a few ideas, I found myself uncomfortable with the entire idea of writing about romantic films right now. Honestly, I was hoping to spend this week with my head down and then just sail right through this weekend without writing about love at all, because for the first time in my adult life, I am no longer sure what I think about it. After all, I was with my wife for 14 years. »

After a two-year absence from the bigscreen, Hugh Grant — who got involved in politics following the News of the World phone hacking scandal in 2011, which affected him and dozens of celebrity colleagues — is excited to make a comeback in the romantic comedy “The Rewrite.”

“It’s lovely to be back. I got involved in a big political campaign in Britain, which has devoured my life,” Grant, 54, told Variety at the film’s Cinema Society screening in New York on Tuesday night at the Landmark Sunshine Theater. “I also became a father. I keep having children. I can’t stop,” he quipped.

In “The Rewrite” — which premiered in the U.K. last October and will open in the U.S. on Friday — Grant plays an Oscar-winning Hollywood screenwriter-turned-reluctant professor at a small college, who comes to value self-worth over fame upon meeting a spirited single mom (Marisa Tomei).
