Movies to Ring in the New Year

30 December 2012 6:00 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Like most holidays, New Year's Eve usually incites endless clichés. People try (and fail) to sing "Auld Lang Syne," create resolutions that will be broken by the following Tuesday, and awkwardly kiss at midnight. Even though the holiday is a lesser-celebration to big brother Christmas, there happen to be some great movies based around the time the clock strikes midnight. Here are a few you might want to take a look at before heading out to a party or watching the ball drop.

Why Can't My New Year's Eve Be Like the Movies?

28 December 2012 9:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect.

In honor of Hollywood's optimistic vision for the year's most stressful night, here's a compilation of the nine greatest moments caught on celluloid as the clock strikes 12. It may not be as good as the real thing … because it's even better. Happy New Year, indeed.

1. 'Sleepless in Seattle' (1993)

This romantic comedy actually (gasp!) gets it right. After some ill-fated back-and-forth, Sam (Tom Hanks) and Annie (Meg Ryan) finally unite — in large »

Exclusive Interview: Working Title's Eric Fellner on Les Mis & 2013 Line-Up

23 December 2012 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

A lot of work went into making Tom Hooper's big screen version of the record-setting musical Les Misérables happen and no one knows that better than Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan of Working Title Films, the prolific British production company responsible for films like Four Weddings and a Funeral , Bridget Jones's Diary , Atonement and many more. Neither Fellner nor Bevan do many interviews, so ComingSoon.net felt really lucky to get some time to speak with Fellner early in the morning before the press conferences for "Les Mis" and we not only spoke about that, but also some other projects Working Title has in the works. The interesting ones of note are that they hope to shoot Stephen Daldry's Trash and the long-delayed Lost for Words next year, and that Jo »

'Mr. Selfridges' trailer: Starring Jeremy Piven's mustache

21 December 2012 4:15 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

“We’re giving them style, glamour, razzmatazz!” says Jeremy Piven in the new trailer for Mr. Selfridge, an ITV/PBS series set to run in the new year. Piven plays Harry Gordon Selfridge, the American founder of the British department store Selfridges, who was responsible for popularizing the phrase “the customer is always right,” a decidedly un-Ari Gold sentiment.

Click past the jump to take a look at the upbeat trailer, set to “Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing).”

Mr. Selfridge looks like a fun, sepia-toned romp through high-end London in the 1910′s. We’ll ignore the fact that the »

The 25 Best Movies of 2012

17 December 2012 8:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Like every year, 2012 seems to have gone by far too quickly. But, unlike almost every year, 2012 was filled to the brim with great movies. From moving dramas and unforgettable indies to shockingly worthy comedies and actually super superhero blockbusters, Team NextMovie really had a difficult time narrowing down our 25 favorite flicks of the year.

In fact, the only thing we all agreed on unanimously was what film should sit at the very top. What was it?

As if we'd tell you this early! Read on to see what made our shortlists and let us know in the comments what made yours.

25. 'The Hunger Games'

With "Twilight" coming to a close, many pundits kicked off 2012 wondering which franchise would fill its major money-making shoes. "The Hunger Games" may have been lucky to be the first out the gate – 2013 will see many others jockeying for a place in Twi-hards' hearts »

13 UK films to look forward to in 2013

16 December 2012 10:31 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Louisa Mellor Dec 17, 2012

We've plucked 13 potential little beauties out of the 2013 UK film line-up, feat. sci-fi, comic-book, horror, comedy, thriller & more...

Look ahead to the UK films coming out in 2013 and you’ll see a diverse landscape of filmmakers, genres, actors, budgets and ideas. Next year brings us something new from Joanna Hogg, and something else from Danny Dyer. Irvine Welsh’s Filth will almost certainly live up to its title, but the Absolutely Fabulous film? We’ll see.

Al Pacino’s playing King Lear, and Stephen Mangan’s playing Postman Pat. Shane Meadows is making a film about the Tour de France, and Nigel Cole is making a film about an otter. Steve Coogan will be a porn baron, Bridget Jones will have a baby, Nick Frost will dance the salsa, Martin Freeman will save Santa, and Sean Bean, bless the man, will probably die.

12 Days of Christmas: Five Fun Facts About "Bridget Jones’s Diary!"

16 December 2012 7:10 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The holidays are finally upon us, and in celebration we're posting five fun facts about our favorite festive flicks.Today's featured film Helen Fielding’s classic novel turned 2001 film adaptation, "Bridget Jones’s Diary."1. To prepare for the role, Renee Zellweger not only packed on 25lbs, but she actually worked at a British publishing company for a month -- she worked under an alias and adopted a British accent, and apparently went unrecognized! All she kept on her desk was a picture of her then boyfriend Jim Carrey which her co-workers found to be odd ... but didn’t bring it up in fear of embarrassing her. 2. Renee smoked herbal cigarettes in the film, not real ones. 3. In order to prefect her English accent, Zellweger spoke in the accent on and off set for the entire length of filming. It wasn’t until the wrap party that her costars heard her »

Jon Stewart calls Daily Show guest Hugh Grant 'a big pain in the ass'

14 December 2012 9:33 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Satirist labels British actor who made 2009 appearance his least favorite guest, adding: 'And we've had dictators on the show'

He may be Hollywood's go-to guy for eccentric British charm, but Hugh Grant has been banned from The Daily Show by host Jon Stewart – for being a "big pain in the ass". Stewart said he would "never" have Grant back on his daily Comedy Central show, after an appearance by the actor in 2009.

In an onstage Q&A last week, details of which emerged on Friday, Stewart said Grant was his least favorite guest. "And we've had dictators on the show," he said.

Grant's appearance on The Daily Show came when he was promoting the movie Did You Hear About the Morgans? Stewart said the actor spent much of the time at the studio complaining to staff and saying he had better places to be. "He's giving everyone shit the whole time, »

Bridget Jones’s Diary: 10 Awesome Images You’ve Never Seen

13 December 2012 1:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As the calendar creeps quickly towards Christmas Day on the 25th of December, we’re counting down the days with a special advent calendar of festive films, revealing a set of rare images for each chosen film to surprise and delight film fans. 

Bridget Jones is perfectly imperfect, and we love her just the way she is: uninhibited, uncensored, unmarried.

For those who weren’t familiar with Helen Fielding’s fictitious thirty-something-spinster, in 2001 everyone got to know Bridget Jones as the nation’s sweetheart when she (Renée Zellweger) appeared on our screens (arse first…). Although Renée is American (Texan to be precise) she does pull off a very playful and convincing British accent. I have seen this film so many times and yet I still continue to laugh out loud throughout the film. It’s definitely a comical Christmas (and all-year) classic.

I’m sure, like myself, you have your »

12 December 2012 6:30 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Looks like Renée Zellweger has a beau! The 43-year-old actress was snapped at Lax with a new fellow in tow as the couple jetted off together. The Bridget Jones's Diary star looked casual in jeans and a jacket, and she went for an incognito look, wearing her aviator shades indoors. The actress's new man sported a similar style, as the coordinating couple navigated through the terminal together.  Zellweger's last high-profile relationship with Bradley Cooper ended in May 2011. The Silver Linings Playbook star has since moved on with Zoe Saldana. »

Taking on the Tabloids - review

28 November 2012 4:50 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The unwillingness of Goliath to engage with Hugh Grant's David left the film feeling short of material, writes Mark Lawson

Actors are often uneasy when asked to be themselves in public and it was noticeable that Hugh Grant, fronting Taking on the Tabloids, a documentary rushed into the schedules on the eve of the Leveson report, rapidly gave himself a character to play – a plucky guy called David.

"We're David taking on a terrifying Goliath," Grant declared, referring to the Hacked Off campaign that he heads with the Lib Dem former MP, Evan Harris, with the aim of promoting legislation against press misbehaviour.

As portrayed for an hour on Channel 4 last night, "David" is a 52-year-old former heart-throb actor who, though rumoured to be due to appear in the third Bridget Jones movie next year, has recently cut back on acting and taken to appearing as an anti-tabloid »

Gambit gabble: what actors' accents lack

27 November 2012 1:25 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Cameron Diaz's much ridiculed bid to sound Texan rodeo star is the latest in a resonant cinematic tradition of feeble phonemes

Gambit has attracted plenty of brickbats, but one complaint might have surprised yesteryear's filmgoers. Cameron Diaz plays an over-the-top rodeo queen, so she weighs in with a wacky Texan accent. What's wrong with that? Well, it isn't quite the way that Texans actually speak. Her effort is "insufferable" according to Guanabee.com; it had BuzzSugar "cringing".

Sadly, California–born Diaz has form when it comes to mangling the speech of the southern states. The moral dilemma film The Box was set in Richmond, Virginia. For this, Diaz laid on what a Brit might have thought an unobjectionable southern accent. The city guide Black Book heard things differently. "It's that generic cornpone drawl that Hollywood would usually have us believe everyone below the Mason-Dixon line speaks," the magazine fumed. »

Ten Things About... Bridget Jones

16 November 2012 1:07 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bridget Jones, the loveable 30-something singleton who started life as a newspaper column, is back next year to muddle her way through life in 2013. As well as a third film on the horizon, author Helen Fielding has just announced that she's penning a sequel to the hit novels, to be published next autumn. We take a look back to remind ourselves of the ditzy character: 1. Bridget Jones is an only child, born on November 9. Her mother Pamela is an overly-doting woman who's constantly trying to set her daughter up with rich men. Her father Colin is a laid-back man who can sympathise with Bridget over his wife's erratic ways. 2. Bridget was born in 1962, making her 50 last week. However, she doesn't appear to age like the rest of us - we saw her at just 32 in the film adaptation of Bridget Jones' Diary in 2001 - and the new book is »

A modern Bridget Jones | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett

11 November 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Helen Fielding's iconic creation is set to face 21st century problems – whatever they may be

Bridget Jones is making a comeback. Her creator, Helen Fielding, has revealed she is working on a third book almost 13 years after the last instalment, when Bridget was about to embark on smug coupledom. I have always had a soft spot for Bridget and, having also once walked in on a boyfriend in bed with an American, I like to think we share the tristesse of the wronged woman.

But while I await the return of my literary spirit-animal with bated breath, the revelation that Bridget will return with a whole host of 21st-century problems at a "new phase in her life" has got me wondering what we are to expect. Are we to listen in on Bridget and Daniel Cleaver arguing about data roaming fees or see them "sexting"? Will she join Guardian »
