Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Show-Stopping Bening Channels Channing

10 May 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Being Julia' movie: Annette Bening and Shaun Evans 'Being Julia' movie review: Annette Bening showcase tells us a little about Avice A little Being Julia movie background: In Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 1950 Oscar-winning classic All About Eve, Bette Davis plays Margo Channing, a major Broadway star who, despite her talent, wit, and some forty-odd years on this planet, falls prey to the youthful, ambitious wannabe Eve Harrington: sweet, soft-spoken Anne Baxter on the outside; ruthless, poisonous gargoyle on the inside.* More than a decade earlier, in 1937 to be exact, W. Somerset Maugham had written Theatre, a novel about West End diva Julia Lambert. In Maugham's tale, Julia, despite her talent, wit, and some forty-odd years on this planet, succumbs to her vanity when she falls madly in love with Tom Fennel, a handsome – and deceptively innocent-looking – American half her age. Through Tom's "special friendship" with the renowned Julia, an ambitious young actress, »

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

No Makeup? No Problem! See a Bare-Faced Cindy Crawford

4 May 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Cindy Crawford is an ageless beauty!  The former super model took to Instagram to share a fresh-faced snap while enjoying a laid back Sunday morning!  "A lazy sunday morning. #beautyis," the gorgeous star captioned the photo.   In the shot, the 49-year-old rocks a bare face and tousled hair as she relaxes in her pajamas at her home in Malibu, California.   It's hard to believe the runway model will turn 50 next year -- she looks as good now as she did during the height of her career!    And no wonder the All-American beauty is so timeless, as she leads a healthy and active lifestyle which she frequently documents on her social media page.   "Officially strawberry season! Keeping it local with @RandeGerber at the Farmer's Market," she said of the cute snap.   In the shot Cindy stands with her long time love, husband Rande Gerber, as they pick up some fresh »

Second Opinion – Monsters: Dark Continent (2015)

3 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Monsters: Dark Continent, 2015.

Directed by Tom Green.

Starring Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, Joe Dempsie, Kyle Soller, Nicholas Pinnock and Parker Sawyers.

Synopsis:

Ten years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have now spread worldwide. In the Middle East a new insurgency has begun. At the same time there has also been a proliferation of Monsters in that region. The Army decide to draft in more numbers to help deal with this insurgency.

Making a sequel to a critically lauded film as Gareth Edward’s Monsters (2010) wasn’t going to be an easy feat and Tom Green’s follow up Monsters: Dark Continent manages to expertly fail in every way. Much like the transition from Alien to Aliens, this time round we follow a group of soldiers as they attempt to deal with insurgent activity caused by the Monster infection. This is where the similar ends. Whilst »

Why 1999 was the best year in movie history

30 April 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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. The end of the 1990s was the end of an era on the big screen. The independent filmmaking movement that started the decade had taken full bloom and infiltrated the business. Major studios had begun to jump headlong into the "dependent" game, amping up prestige product and utilizing the awards season as a marketing tool. The blockbuster landscape at the summer multiplex had been interesting, full of original concepts (good and bad), but something else was on the way — a new overlord in the business of film, and one that would more or less make the age of the movie star (at least as we had come to know it) a thing of the past. For those reasons and a slew of others, »

Kevin Spacey Plays Presidential Trivia With Cute Kid, Gets Destroyed!

28 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Kevin Spacey might play the President on TV, but he sure doesn't know a whole lot about U.S. history!  The actor stops by Tuesday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where he plays a presidential trivia game with an expert challenger, a little girl who goes by the name Macey.  Check out the cute clip above to see how Spacey stacks up against the adorable little girl!  While Macey tried to give the "House of Cards" star time to answer the questions, Spacey still didn't know most of the right answers ... he also kept blurting out "Matt Lauer" whenever he didn't know what to say.  Earlier in the episode, the 55-year-old gets candid about his strong connection to Boston and reveals why he named his dog after the Massachusetts capital.   "Yeah, I have a really strong connection to the city of Boston. I shot a couple of movies there. We did 'Social Network' there. »

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Mip TV: Mena Suvari on ‘South of Hell,’ Eli Roth, Her Chameleon Nature

14 April 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Conjoining the talents of the world’s two young high priests of horror, Eli Roth and Jason Blum, Mena Suvari’s psychological chiller “South of Hell,” an eight-hour original drama, initiated its sales campaign Monday at Cannes Mip TV, having wrapped production in Charlestown in January.

At Mip TV, in a pretty print dress, Suvari hardly looks as if she’s got a devil inside her. That, however is part of her interest as an actress. Suvari broke out in Sam Mendes’ Oscar winning “American Beauty” where she played the girl next door and object of a helpless Kevin Spacey’s desire.

There’s something of that dichotomy, amped up, in “South of Hell,” which is produced by Blumhouse Television and Sonar Entertainment, which also sells international.

Set in Charleston, South Carolina, “the most possessed city in the world,” according to a synopsis, “South” features Suvari in almost every »

Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Miniseries Finds Director And Supporting Cast

7 April 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

11/22/63 is proof that not every literary adaptation starring James Franco is based on the works of John Steinbeck or William Faulkner. This upcoming miniseries hails from legendary horror author Stephen King (whose works outside of the scary realm are equally as prolific as those within it) and focuses on a small-town school teacher who realizes he is able to travel through time via a door in a local diner. Franco previously snagged the lead role as the teacher Jake Epping, who takes it upon himself to prevent the assassination of JFK, and the show has now secured a director and supporting cast.

Academy Award winner Kevin McDonald (The Last King Of Scotland) has signed on to direct and executive produce the first two episodes of the nine-hour event series. He will work from a script penned by Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), who is expected to seriously curtail King »

Amy Schumer Tweets Then Deletes Photo of Her Entertainment Weekly Cover "Without Airbrushing"

2 April 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Internet is fast, but it looks like for once, someone was faster. Amy Schumer, our personal role model and the queen of our hearts, is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week, naked and covered in mini bottles of alcohol in a boozy ode to American Beauty. She looks foxy as hell, of course, but we are a bit worried about her safety during this photo shoot as one wrong move means shards of glass all up in her naughty bits. Naughty Shards, we think is the medical term. (Yes, we know they were probably plastic but just…let us have the Naught Shards joke, Ok?) Anyway, minutes after her cover went live on Twitter, the 33-year-old Trainwreck star posted a photo of what looked like an image from »
