Sean Penn Blasts Sony for Pulling ‘The Interview’

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actor Sean Penn has criticized Sony Pictures Entertainment harshly over its decision to pull “The Interview” from release.

Penn, in an email to Mother Jones, said: “This week, the distributors who wouldn’t show ‘The Interview’ and Sony have sent Isis a commanding invitation. I believe Isis will accept the invitation. Pandora’s box is officially open.”

On Wednesday, Sony cited terrorist threats from hackers in its announcement to ditch the comedy. Penn said, “The damage we do to ourselves typically outweighs the harm caused by outside threats or actions.”

Penn also said that the issue of the Sony hacking should go before the United Nations.

The FBI linked the hackers to North Korea on Friday. President Obama said Sony had “made a mistake” in pulling the film.

Penn’s full statement:

It’s not the first time culture has been threatened by foreign interests and corporate caution. See [then Disney CEO] Michael Eisner »

“I was going to say goodbye, but now that I’ll live forever, who knows,” he said, before breaking out into song.

Jon Stewart first took the stage for “We’ll Meet Again” with Randy Newman at the piano. Tom Brokaw, James Franco, Andy Cohen, Barry Manilow, Jeff Daniels, Neil DeGrasse TysonBob CostasArianna Huffington, George Lucas, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Kareem Abdul Jabbar  and even Big Bird and Cookie Monster sang along, among others, bidding adieu to Colbert. (A full list is posted below the video.)

Colbert will take a seat on the “Late Show,” sometime in 2015 after Letterman’s final May 20 episode. »

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Martin Freeman and Charli Xcx

13 December 2014 8:11 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Martin Freeman seemed like a solid but unusual choice to host “Saturday Night Live” when he was first announced. Had you asked me twenty possible hosts for the show’s December run, I’m not sure I would have put him anywhere near that list. (I’d have gone with Ian McKellan returning to host over Freeman making his debut.) Quite frankly, I’m surprised the star of “The Hobbit”/”Fargo”/”Sherlock” even had the time or energy to host at all. We’ve seen his comedic chops in all of those programs, as well as in the original version of “The Office,” so we know he has the bonafides to host. But how will he integrate with the show’s current cast? That’s what we’ll find out tonight. As always, I’ll be liveblogging as the episode progresses, assessing grades to each segment. As always, you the »

Watch: Rosario Dawson Talks Collaborating with Chris Rock, "owning" Her Character, in 'Top Five' (Exclusive Video)

12 December 2014 2:04 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There's a reason why Charlie Rose booked Rosario Dawson on his show this week. She's gorgeous, smart and hugely engaging, all of which are on ample display in talk-fest "Top Five," triple threat Chris Rock's latest comedy as a writer-director-star. It was the hit of Toronto, where Paramount scooped it up for 2014 release (December 12). Rock collaborated with his old friend on the film and lets her run as a sharp, talented reporter interviewing his on-the-ropes star (this is yet another examination of the pitfalls of art and commerce) for The New York Times. They find mutual attraction and cover a lot of ground as they talk through myriad issues. Dawson's performance is awards-worthy, but so far SAG and the Hollywood Foreign press seem to be hung up on Rock's raunchy comedy style. Never mind: the movie will be a huge hit. We started out on video (see below) and continued with a text interview, »

'Top Five': Top Five Reasons to See Chris Rock's Latest

12 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With the holiday season approaching, there are a lot of movies out there vying not just for attention from awards voters this December, but from audiences too. And over the next couple weeks, there's something for everyone at the box office, from family films to the annual Oscar bait to Ya action to the final chapter in a certain juggernaut fantasy franchise. But if you haven't already, you should go ahead and add Chris Rock's "Top Five" to your December movie wishlist.

In the film (which he also wrote and directed), Rock stars as Andre Allen, a formerly beloved comedian trying to make the transition to "serious actor" status with his latest movie, a failed Oscar-bait retelling of the Haitian Revolution. At the same time, his reality-star fiancée (Gabrielle Union) plans their made-for-tv wedding and a New York Times reporter (Rosario Dawson) attempts to interview Allen about the reason behind his sudden career shift. »

Chris Rock explains the inspiration for 'Hammy the Bear' in 'Top Five'

25 November 2014 7:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sometimes if the parts aren't coming to you, you simply need to create them. It's an old story in the entertainment business and the genesis of Chris Rock's fantastic new flick "Top Five." Rock has won four Emmy Awards and is known as being one of the top stand-up comics of his generation, but if he was going to make something "meaningful" on the big screen he was going to have to do some soul searching. That meant trying to make a movie better than the previous films he either wrote or directed, including "Down to Earth" (screenplay), "Head of State" (wrote and directed) and the underrated "I Think I Love My Wife," arguably his most personal work before "Top Five." Speaking to HitFix this past weekend, Rock says his thought process was: "If I want to work in the type of movies that I want to work in, »

Chris Rock on That Stubborn Burden of Representation Thing ("Black Fame" vs "White Fame")

17 November 2014 12:51 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

In the below short interview with Charlie Rose, Chris Rock talks about his latest, much-buzzed about film, "Top Five," as well as fame, and what he sees as the differences between "black fame," and "white fame." He summarizes, as only Chris Rock can, a subject we've long tackled on this site over the years - something we refer to as the "burden of representation" that black content creators shoulder (or choose not to).  Essentially, the matter at hand is whether black artists (specifically those in the film industry – filmmakers, actors, etc) are under any obligation to “represent” the so-called black community. Should the choices they »

After appearing on Good Morning America, Live! With Kelly and Michael and Charlie Rose, Benedict Cumberbatch entered the packed Terrace Room at The Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City to a slew of flashing bulbs and familiar faces — his Imitation Game cast. "Can I have a glass of wine, or will I immediately face-plant into the table?" he asked screenwriter Graham Moore and author Walter Isaacson (The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution) at the intimate luncheon with reporters and Academy voters.

Four of the Best Moments From Jon Stewart's 'Rosewater' TV Interviews

15 November 2014 7:17 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Part of the fun of watching Jon Stewart make the rounds to promote his feature directorial debut Rosewater is hearing the Daily Show host riff on everything from politics to parenting, not to mention thoughtfully explaining some of the larger ideas behind his film. In the past week or so, Stewart has appeared on everything from Charlie Rose to The Late Show With David Letterman to The O'Reilly Factor. Most of the interviews were pretty standard, with Stewart explaining how he became friends with journalist Maziar Bahari and ended up directing the true story of Bahari's Iran imprisonment and later

Hollywood Film Awards: The Town Still Reeling

15 November 2014 11:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

During awards season, there is always a wide range of opinions on things. However, CBS’ “Hollywood Film Awards,” making their debut on TV after years as a private ceremony, achieved a rare feat in showbiz: Everyone felt the same way. The general consensus on Friday night was summed up by one veteran, who gasped, “What a mess!”

Of course, blind quotes are a cheap trick in journalism. However, since the names of the jurors deciding these awards was kept secret, it feels fair to use anonymous quotes here. A cross-section of comments:

“It was godawful…overlong acceptance speeches from people nobody in America wanted to hear from.”

“It felt exposed for what it always was, a phony awards show.”

“CBS should be ashamed for making those three (Charlie Rose, Nora O’Donnell and Gayle King) participate in that hourlong special after the ceremony. They have been working for years to »

Conan & Max Weinberg reunite after nearly 5 years Weinberg, who was Conan O'Brien's bandleader from 1993 until Conan's "Tonight Show" ended in January 2010, made his first appearance on the "Conan" TBS show, helping fill in on drums. Neil Patrick Harris: “In a perfect world, in five years I’m Ed Sullivan” Harris talked about his variety show dreams with Charlie Rose: "Once a week I’d get to, like, show everyone amazing performances on Broadway, amazing magicians, this great restaurant that we went to — to  be a bit of a tastemaker. I’d get to be P.T. Barnum.” Plus: Will Harris save variety — or bury it? This is how the “Game of Thrones” Iron Throne is supposed to look Martin has said the show got the Iron Throne wrong: "I said repeatedly the Iron Throne is huge. It towers over the room like a great beast. And it's ugly. »

George Lucas Says He Made 'Star Wars' To Explore "Psychological Motifs In Mythology"

28 October 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are some who argue that George Lucas' "Star Wars" saga has entered the realm of modern mythology. And certainly, that it's a tale involving heroes, villains, The Force, and other archetypes, a convincing case could be made. According to the creator himself, his idea in making the toy-selling, sci-fi blockbuster series was to examine the very qualities of storytelling, and how stories are shared and passed down from generation to generation. In a chat in Chicago with Charlie Rose earlier this month, Lucas discussed why he set out to make "Star Wars," and central among his reasons was to explore "psychological motifs in mythology," in particular elements that resonated each time a story was told. “It’s about good and evil, but what makes a hero, what’s friendship, what’s the idea of sacrificing yourself for something larger?” Lucas said. “They’re all really basic things.

George Lucas on the meaning and mythology of ‘Star Wars’

24 October 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) If you’ve been scratching your head for the past four decades trying to figure out what "Star Wars" is really all about, George Lucas sat down with Charlie Rose and opened up about that very subject. The creator of the 1977 game-changer and ridiculously influential cultural touchstone reveals that the real origin of "Star Wars" can be traced back to a long, long time ago — specifically to the days when myths and stories were spread orally throughout expanding cultures from one generation to the next. Lucas explains that these stories had the rules for the fledgling society encoded within them, which made it easy — and entertaining — to instill the values necessary for societal stability into the next generations. Lucas says he wanted to make a movie to test whether those same techniques could work on a modern audience. “It’s about good and evil, but heroes — what makes a hero, »

George Lucas Discusses the Meaning of Star Wars with Charlie Rose

24 October 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Star Wars creator George Lucas did an interview with Charlie Rose earlier this month. During the discussion Lucas talked about the meaning and mythology behind the epic sci-fi fantasy film, and why he thinks that the message it carries is so universal. One things Lucas said was,

"What makes a hero, what's friendship, what's the idea of sacrificing yourself for something larger... They're all really basic things. So you say, well, you don't have to make a movie about that, it's very obvious, but it's actually not."

He gave some interesting insight on the franchise that a lot of fans love and cherish. This interview is definitely worth watching if you're a fan.
