Seven Psychopaths – review

8 December 2012 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After establishing his reputation as a playwright, Martin McDonagh made a remarkably confident movie debut in 2004 directing the Oscar-winning, half-hour Six Shooter, set on a train in his native Ireland, where grieving widower Brendan Gleeson is confronted by a gun-toting psychopath. He followed it up in 2008 with his first feature, the dazzling, accomplished In Bruges, a conscious cross between Hemingway's The Killers and Beckett's Waiting for Godot in which Gleeson and Colin Farrell play Irish hitmen waiting for their psychopathic British boss to dictate their next assignment. Now McDonagh has moved to the States, where his hero, Colin Farrell, is Marty, an incipient alcoholic Irish playwright working on a Hollywood film, and the number of psychopaths involved has exponentially advanced to seven.

At the opening of the startling and funny Seven Psychopaths the camera pans across the hills above Los Angeles, taking in the iconic sign that has loomed over »

Ian McKellen Talks About Returning For X-Men: Days Of Future Past

30 November 2012 5:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that he’s done being Gandalf for what promises to be last time, Ian McKellen has agreed to reprise another one of his most famous roles: X-Men‘s Magneto for Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Magneto, of course, was played by Michael Fassbender in X-Men: First Class (and will be again for this sequel), though given that the story is set between multiple time-frames, there’s room for both versions of the character.

Here’s what McKellen had to say about taking on the role again and working with Patrick Stewart (also set to return as an older, balder Charles Xavier):

“What a gas! I mean, Patrick Stewart and I have been have just been playing Waiting For Godot throughout England and in the West End of London. So, we’ve stayed in touch. We can’t believe it [laughs]. I thought these were [Michael] Fassbender and [James] McAvoy’s parts, »

Center Theatre Group Leads Ovation Award Winners

13 November 2012 5:32 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Celebration Theatre’s musical production of “The Color Purple” saw the buzz its run generated turned into a glittering haul of statues at the Ovation Awards Monday. “Purple” took home six of the L.A. Stage Alliance’s honors, including best production, acting ensemble, and featured actress (La Toya London as Shug Avery) in a musical (intimate theatre) Center Theatre Group was the overall winner of the night, bringing in five awards alone for “Waiting for Godot” at the Mark Taper Forum, including best production of a play. It also won the night's top honor for best season.  In total, Ctg took home 13 statues (one was an Ovation Honor for video design for Brian Gale). The decision to hand out honors instead of awards in certain categories had generated controversy in the lead up to the event. But the ceremony was largely free of discord, except when “Mike & Molly” creator Mark Roberts wondered aloud, »

15 October 2012 1:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Treme, Season 3, Episode 4: “The Greatest Love

Written by David Simon (Story), Mari Kornhauser and Chris Yakaitis (Teleplay)

Directed by Ernest Dickerson

Airs Sundays at 10pm (Et) on HBO

This week, on Treme: LP feels the heat, romance is in the air (or it isn’t), and Ladonna’s is the place to be on Sundays

After last week’s character survey, which featured significant moments and decisions for many of the main cast, “The Greatest Love” pulls in closer, focusing on relative newcomer LP Everett’s investigation into police corruption. Much of this episode centers around LP, who’s been relegated to the fringes for much of his time so far on the show. We finally get the particulars of the case he’s working, of which the negligent homicide of a New Orleanian by a group of No police officers is just the beginning. After a few »

One Man, Two Guvnors to tour Australia

10 September 2012 6:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The hit National Theatre production is to visit major festivals in Asia and New Zealand, before taking up residency as part of Cate Blanchett's final season as co-artistic director of Sydney Theatre Company

The National Theatre's smash hit One Man, Two Guvnors will swap Brighton pier for Bondi beach when it embarks on a tour of Australia and east Asia next year.

Having just finished a successful five months on Broadway, Nicholas Hytner's production will visit major festivals in Hong Kong, Adelaide and Auckland from February, before playing six-week runs in each of Australia's two cultural capitals, Sydney and Melbourne. The transfer might require playwright Richard Bean to tinker with the script a second time, to smooth some of the particularly British terminology for a new audience.

With James Corden due to film his latest self-penned BBC sitcom, The Wrong Man, in early 2013, the cast will be led by Owain Arthur. »

True Blood’s Janina Gavankar releases debut single “Waiting for Godot”

29 August 2012 11:06 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

South Asian American artistic chameleon, Janina Gavankar, is busting out with new colors! If starring on TV’s hottest show, True Blood, wasn’t enough, Janina is on her way to take control of the music world! Her debut single, “Waiting For Godot” hits digital platforms August 28th.

Lyrically, Janina references the famous play, of the same title, by Samuel Beckett, on “Waiting for Godot,” over a haunting, ambient foundation, that later progresses into dub-step, then into a choir—yes, a choir, of 25 moving parts. The mix of experimental, quirky, electro-pop, on her debut single is just a taste of what to expect on her not-yet-titled, upcoming Ep, which drops later this year via Randy Jackson’s Friendship Collective label. “One day Randy Jackson [of American Idol fame] called,” Janina explains of their musical union. “He said ‘You’re weird! I like it! I think you’re going to make great music!’ Now I »

Straight Up: The 10 Greatest Winners of MTV's "Best Female Video" Award

27 August 2012 12:52 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

So, get this: I have reverence for the MTV Music Video Awards. If you check their history of winners (and ignore some key, depressing anomalies), they routinely honor the correct people. Since this year's ceremony on September 6 is just a couple of weeks away, we're celebrating with a new celebration of the VMAs' past: a list of the best 10 winners of the coveted "Best Female Video" trophy. For a refresher course in the history of the category, check this out. For a definitive list of the best lady videos' of the past 30 years, check below.

10. Cyndi Lauper, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"

She's so unusual, indeed -- Cyndi Lauper whipped her block into a swishy, she-bopping frenzy in "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," and while her punky chutzpah certainly warranted MTV award credibility, she deserved every award for out-snarling Elvis and offering killer pipes, to boot.
