Nantucket Film Festival Celebrates Risk-Taking Writers

24 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Nantucket has been a creative refuge for decades,” multihyphenate Ben Stiller says. “The festival has coalesced the film-writing community and celebrated individuality — in a way that is part of being on the island: independent, isolated (so as to) foster risk-taking.”

Stiller’s parents — Jerry and the late Anne Meara — were original supporters. “I’ve watched this thing become an amazing success that celebrates real talent.”

A Nantucket Film Festival board member, Stiller often attends the fest, which turns 20 this year. He regularly hosts a lively, Sro All-Star Comedy Roundtable that has welcomed Mike Myers, Seth Meyers, Bill Hader, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman and Brian Williams, among others.

The event will kick off June 24 with A24’s David Foster Wallace drama “The End of the Tour,” starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg. Documentary “The Best of Enemies” about the televised debates between William F. Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal during the 1968 presidential election, »

Anne Meara, Actress And Comedienne, Dead At Age 85

25 May 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Anne Meara, who along with her husband and partner Jerry Stiller, became a comedy legend, has died at age 85. Meara and Stiller were unlikely candidates for romance in 1950s New York: he was Jewish, she was Catholic. Nevertheless, to the disappointment of both of their families, they married. Like many young couples in show business, they initially struggled to pay the bills. They developed a comedy act that proved to be popular in Gotham night clubs. This eventually caught the eye of Ed Sulllivan, who gave them a coveted slot on his Sunday night variety show. The rest was history. Stiller and Meara became one of the top comedy acts in the country. Their real life marriage lasted 61 years, during which they remained mainstays on the New York social scene. They also continued to perform regularly and even had a popular web-based series. Meara was a familiar face on television and in feature films. »

Owen Wilson is WOWed by everything in a brilliant compilation video

10 May 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Owen Wilson is pretty easy to impress it seems – a brilliant new video has emerged demonstrating how many times the actor says "wow!" in his films.

There's two and a half whole minutes of Wilson being wowed by everything, as seen in clips taken from films such as You, Me and Dupree, The Darjeeling Limited and Marley and Me.

In total, the actor says his favourite word 54 times, meaning he averages nearly one "wow!" per film.

Earlier this year, the trailer for Wilson's new action thriller No Escape debuted.

In the film, Wilson partners up with co-star Pierce Brosnan to ensure his family's safety amidst a violent revolt in South East Asia.

Wilson is also currently working on Zoolander 2 with Ben Stiller.

The sequel was officially announced at Paris Fashion week in March when the comedy actors walked the catwalk as their alter egos Derek Zoolander and Hansel during Valentino's show. »

The D Train – The Review

7 May 2015 8:26 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s hard not to like The D Train, a witty, well-made celebration of friendship in which two very different guys come to know and appreciate each other – if maybe a bit too much. Jack Black stars as Dan Landsman, a schlubby married Pittsburgh dad enthusiastically heading up his 20th high school reunion committee even though he’s so unpopular the rest of the group heads out for beers after their meetings without inviting him along. The board members have been unable to muster much support for the reunion, but things change when Dan spots a TV commercial starring former classmate and school stud Oliver Lawless (James Marsden), now the face of ‘Banana Boat’ sunblock ad campaign. If Dan can get Oliver to attend the reunion, he figures others will follow suit just to rub elbows with a TV star, making him a hero. Dan works for a consulting firm »

Zoolander 2 To Feature Justin Bieber Cameo

29 April 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the original Zoolander waltzed onto the scene back in 2001, Ben Stiller’s fashion bonanza was chock full of cameo appearances, with everyone from Paris Hilton to the Spice Girls getting in on the action. Fast forward to 2015 and with Stiller gearing up to deliver a bigger and bolder sequel with Zoolander 2, today brings word that singer-songwriter Justin Bieber has joined the sequel in an unspecified role.

The director took to Instagram to confirm the news, with Bieber donning his best Blue Steel impression and reaffirming his place through Twitter. Both parties threw up the above image alongside the casting announcement, hinting that Bieber could very well play a young protégé to Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander or, perhaps in the more likely scenario, a wet-behind-the-ears rival who just so happens to steal his jet-black do. We’ll likely learn more about Bieber’s role as the high-fashion sequel nears its release next year, »
