Salma Hayek Joins Beatriz At Dinner In The Title Role

2 August 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Beatriz At Dinner is in the very earliest stages of coming together as a movie, but it is already starting to sound like an intriguing prospect – albeit one with a premise that is, perhaps, a little familiar. The script comes from Mike White, who co-created the television drama Enlightened. The project also has White’s frequent collaborator Miguel Arteta in the director’s chair, who really began to draw attention in 2002 when he directed the Mike White-scripted film The Good Girl.

It comes as no surprise then, to find that their latest work revolves around a woman finding herself in a tricky situation. According to Deadline, the outline of the story is a fish-out-of-water tale.

“The story follows a holistic medicine practitioner who finds herself a fish out of water when her car breaks down at a wealthy client’s house, and she joins a celebratory dinner party.”

It’s been almost a decade since we’ve seen Mike White direct a feature film. Of course, the screenwriter behind The Good Girl and School of Rock has been busy since Year of the Dog. Most notably, he created and wrote HBO’s Enlightened, a beautiful, often heartbreaking show that didn’t last long enough. He directed six episodes of the series, but now he […]

How well does the Slasher movie format translate to TV?

With the Scream TV series back on air and Scream Queens season 2 on its way, we look at the rules of making successful slasher TV...

Warning: contains mild spoilers for MTV's Scream season one.

"Think about it," says Noah Foster in the pilot episode of MTV's Scream. "Girl and her friends arrive at the dance, the camp, the deserted town, whatever. Killer-with-a-gimmick takes them out one-by-one. Ninety minutes later, the sun comes up as the girl sits in the back of the ambulance watching her friends' bodies being wheeled past. Roll credits."

It's an awkward piece of self-aware dialogue but also a fair, if simplistic, summation of what a slasher movie is. Like a musical or a rom-com the slasher genre is one hardwired to hit the same familiar beats each time around and, like a musical or a rom-com, audiences keep coming back for more.

First Trailer for The Girl on the Train Mixes a Cocktail of Sadness, Alcohol, and Murder

20 April 2016 11:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Good Girl. The Girl With the Gifts. The Girl in the Ice. The Girl You Lost. Luckiest Girl Alive. We can probably blame Stieg Larsson and Gillian Flynn, but the massive success of their respective thriller novels (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl) seemingly prompted a tidal wave of authors to think the key to success was including “Girl” somewhere in their titles. It’s unclear if that strategy actually worked, but there has been at least one that managed to break away from the pack and become a bestseller. Paula Hawkins’ first thriller, The Girl on the Train, caught on with readers and became a big seller, and it wasn’t long before the film rights were snapped up too. The story follows a woman (Emily Blunt) struggling in the wake of divorce who spends her daily commute imagining a perfectly happy love life for a couple she sees from the window. When »

11 April 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jake Gyllenhaal may have been crushing on Jennifer Aniston while filming 2002's The Good Girl, but the Friends star insists she never suspected a thing. "Sweet," Aniston said when I told her yesterday about Gyllenhaal recently revealing his crush secret. "That's adorable." Aniston's Mother's Day co-star Jason Sudeikis cracked, "Whatever happened to him?" "I know, it's a shame," Aniston said. "He had such potential...And then The Good Girl ruined his career." Gyllenhaal admitted during an interview last week with People's Jess Cagle that his feelings for Ms. Aniston began way before they made The Good Girl. "I will say, I had a »

Jake Gyllenhaal's Longtime Crush on Jennifer Aniston Was Based on Much More Than Just Her Good Looks

6 April 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hey, Justin Theroux, it's a good thing we like you so much, because otherwise we'd be shipping a what-could-have-been romance between Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal so hard right now. It turns out that Jake had a major crush on his former co-star, and it wasn't just for superficial reasons, either. In an interview with People's Jess Cagle, the 35-year-old actor seemed almost a little flustered when talking about working with Jen on 2002's The Good Girl. "She's a rough one, you know, not likable. So hard to compliment," he joked. "I will say, I had a crush on her for years. And working with her was not easy...I was–um, yeah. That's all I'm going to say. It was »

[Review] The Confirmation

15 March 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Confirmation opens with a child and his mother waiting outside a church. As the first lines of dialogue were spoken, I felt a sudden pang of shock, thinking I had unwittingly sat down for one of the numerous heavy-handed faith-based features crowding multiplexes. Thankfully, as it continued, the film revealed itself to instead be a rather smart comedy in which faith is a subject sometimes pondered by its characters. Seen through the eyes of its young protagonist, there is so much power in those big unanswerable questions of faith. The boy’s middle-class parents do not see eye-to-eye on the matter of religion, rarely agreeing on any subject since their divorce.

The first directorial effort from Bob Nelson, who also pens the screenplay, is another father-son tale following his Nebraska — this one a more slight, albeit heartfelt dramedy, set long after the parents’ break-up. It is not a film »
