Meg Ryan Lists Luxurious $11 Million New York City Loft
Meg Ryan—the star of many iconic New York City-based films like You've Got Mail and When Harry Met Sally—is selling her home in the Big Apple. The 55-year-old actress has listed her sprawling, luxury loft in SoHo for a whopping $11 million, according to Corcoran. Covering the full fifth floor of a former button factory on NYC's Mercer St., the 4,100 square-foot condo features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a chef's eat-in kitchen, a butler's pantry and a media room.

'The Circle' Trailer: Emma Watson Falls for Tom Hanks' Cult-Like Tech Company

  • Movies.com
Every decade gets its own wave of movies, usually thrillers, built around whatever technology is grabbing headilnes at the time. In the '80s it was all about robots (Runaway, Chopping Mall, Short Circuit, RoboCop). In the '90s it was all about the personal computing revolution (The Net, You've Got Mail, Hackers, Brainscan). The 2000s were about mobile tech (One Missed Call, Cellular, Swordfish, even The Dark Knight has a huge cell phone-related subplot). And now in 2010 we're moving into movies all about live streaming. Recently we've gotten a trio of web video thrillers that are all better than you'd expect (The Den, Unfriended, Nerve), and now a bunch of your favorite people are joining that list. The Circle stars Emma Watson, Tom...

Meg Ryan on Reuniting With Tom Hanks for Ithica:
Meg Ryan has worked with Tom Hanks on a number of occasions, but Ithica is the first time she got to direct the Oscar winner. Hanks plays Ryan's husband in the film, which happens to be her directorial debut. The movie is also Ryan's first onscreen reunion with Hanks since You've Got Mail in 1998, and as she told E! News Thursday at the film's premiere, she still enjoys working with her former co-star! "He's so cute, isn't he?" she said of Hanks. "He's so good and sweet. He's got like this much [indicates a small amount with her fingers] to do in the movie, but he just hits it out of the park." But for as much as Ryan likes working with Hanks...

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan Reunite in New Ithaca Photo

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan Reunite in New Ithaca Photo
Once upon a time, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan were known as America's sweethearts. The duo first paired up on the big screen for 1990's Joe Versus the Volcano. They would also go onto appear together in 1993's Sleepless in Seattle followed by 1998's You've Got Mail. They haven't been seen together since that time. But that all changes with the upcoming WWII drama Ithaca, which brings a stirring reunion between the two lost and wandering soles.

Ithaca marks Meg Ryan's directorial debut after the actress took some time away from appearing in blockbuster romantic comedies. The movie is a coming-of-age tale for one teenage boy, and doesn't revolve around another loving relationship between the two former co-stars. In fact, the pair weren't seen together in the trailer that dropped last month. And they only share a fleeting few moments together on screen. Entertainment Weekly has a first look at this reunion.

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks Finally Reunite Onscreen in Ithaca Trailer

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks Finally Reunite Onscreen in Ithaca Trailer
No matter how brief this reunion is in the trailer, a (fantastic) reunion it still is. Meg Ryan makes her directorial debut with the World War II film, Ithaca, and in it she and Tom Hanks will be playing the parents of 14-year old Homer (Alex Neustaedter) who becomes a telegraph messenger during the war while his brother (Jack Quaid) fights abroad. Meg and Tom's onscreen reunion is brief—a mere heartwarming glance at each other—but it's enough to give us all the same feels they gave us in You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle. If the plot alone won't make you tear up, the thought of these two acting in love again absolutely will. Of course, the trailer features plenty of...

That Time Tom Hanks Re-Created Every Tom Hanks Movie in Under 8 Minutes

  • BuzzSugar
America's sweetheart Tom Hanks turns 60 on Saturday, and we're celebrating by remembering that time he continued to be every person's hero by re-creating every one of his movies. The actor appeared on the very first night of The Late Late Show with James Corden last year, and he and the host recited a few lines from everything from Forrest Gump to Turner & Hooch to You've Got Mail. Basically, Hanks is up for anything, and we should all try to hire him at our next birthday parties to do impressions of himself, because this is spectacular.

Ryder Comments On The Continued Possibility of A 'Beetlejuice 2'

  • LRM Online
Ghostbusters 3

Beetlejuice 2

Bill And Ted 3

The three titles above have gone through the rumor mill since long before we signed onto AOL and heard "You've Got Mail" and the internet became the place for geeks to discuss their favorite movies. Ghostbusters 3 almost happened, but never did. Beetlejuice 2 almost happened, but didn't. Bill And Ted 3 is in that unique spot where it could happen, because the logistical hurdle of getting the core team on board has already been completed, but will only happen once all the stars align- i.e. script, funding, etc.

As we now know, Ghostbusters 3 will never happen now, as the property has been rebooted. But what about Beetlejuice 2? Will it get the reboot treatment? Will it get a true sequel? Does anyone involved even want to make it? Well, it sounds like Beetlejuice 2 falls somewhere between those other two properties. Similar to Ghostbusters 3, it isn't happening. But similar to Bill And Ted 3, it actually could.

So Beetlejuice, fittingly, is in purgatory.

The reason I say it could happen, is that- similar to B&T 3, the originators would totally come back. Tim Burton has said he would do it. Michael Keaton has said he would do it. Winona Ryder has said she would do it. And, depending on who you ask, the film was said to officially be in development earlier this year. Burton, however, squashed that rumor shortly after it hit the net.

Here's what Burton told Collider last month:

"This is the thing, it’s something that I’m interested in, but there’s so many stories [online], dumping Michael Keaton for Johnny Depp and this or that, and I’ve talked to these people and they didn’t wanna hear this so they just made up a story. But the fact of it is I have talked to Michael and I have talked to Winona, I’ve talked to a few people. It’s something that I really would like to do in the right circumstances, but it’s one of those films where it has to be right. It’s not a kind of a movie that cries out [for a sequel], it’s not the Beetlejuice trilogy. So it’s something that if the elements are right—because I do love the character and Michael’s amazing as that character, so yeah we’ll see. But there’s nothing concrete yet."

Now Ryder is out and about, promoting Stranger Things, and here are her latest comments on Beetlejuice 2:

"I don’t really know what’s going on with that. Obviously, it was an iconic film. The only way it could really ever be done is with Tim [Burton] and Michael[Keaton]. I don’t know. There’s something that really resonates with all ages, with that film. It’s interesting. I think it would be great if it happened, if it was the right circumstances. Gosh, you know you’re getting older when they’re making TV shows, sequels or plays for things that you did. It’s very flattering and very humbling, indeed."

So the film is still basically in some sort of holding pattern. As Burton said, the first one wasn't a movie that screamed for a sequel, and it's likely that we won't get a Beetlejuice 2 until Burton, Keaton, and Ryder see a script that blows the doors off of the place. If that ever even happens.

We're basically at one "Beetlejuice." A great script would be a second "Beetlejuice." That would set the stage for the third (and final!)...."Bee-"

Nah, I won't say it. Don't wanna jinx it.

Stage Door: She Loves Me (and Tony Preview)

Overheard whilst exiting Broadway's She Loves Me this weekend:

[surprised] That was just like 'You've Got Mail'!

Bingo, tourist ladies, bingo. She Loves Me, the 1963 musical, currently in the middle of its second Broadway revival, is adapted from the 1937 Hungarian play Parfumerie by Miklós László. It's inspired so many riffs so often you'd think it was a Shakespeare comedy. The play has already resulted in three well-known movies in the form of the touching Jimmy Stewart clasic (The Shop Around the Corner, 1940), an undervalued Judy Garland romance (In the Good Old Summertime, 1949), and the Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks rom-com You've Got Mail (1998). The shop changes as does the mode by which the anonymous lovers correspond without realizing they know and hate each other in real life. Expect an internet catfishing riff on the story in 3...2...1... Anyway, in 1963 the play was adapted into She Loves Me for the musical stage.

Breaking News: Mindy Kaling Likes Rom-Coms, and Here Are Her Top Picks
This morning, Mindy Kaling tweeted a link to a list of her favorite romantic comedies, apparently an idea suggested to her by her friend (?) B.J. Novak (#It'sComplicated). Mindy posted her top nine, begging the question: What's the tenth?? There are a lot of Mindy classics on here, including You've Got Mail and Bridget Jones's Diary, but then, straight out of left field (ha ha!), A League of Their Own! Is that movie even a rom-com? Seems to fall less in the Romantic Comedy category and more in the category of Movies With a Strong Female League. Is it a romance between sisters? A romance between friends? A romance between Bill Pullman limping back from the war and Geena Davis? Decide for yourself. Here's the full list: Bridget Jones' DiaryA movie as good as the book, and in some ways even better because Hugh Grant and Colin Firth were better

If You See Quentin Tarantino Weeping on an Airplane, Don’t Worry; He’s Probably Watching a Rom-Com
Yes, Quentin Tarantino is a master auteur with a penchant for aestheticizing blood, guts, and violence. Yes, Quentin Tarantino is a huge enthusiast of a good rom-com, or, as he puts it, his "guilty pleasure." Oh hell yes, Quentin Tarantino will talk at length about how Ghosts of Girlfriends Past made him weep on an airplane, and how he valiantly defended You've Got Mail to a posse of serious film critics. It all boils down to audience manipulation, something of which, yes, Quentin Tarantino is also a big fan of.
