6 October 2017 8:14 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

James Woods has found the most unusual way ever to take a final bow.

The 70-year-old actor announced his plans to retire from acting via his real estate agent when he put his Exeter, Rhode Island, property up for sale.

Agent Allen Gammons told the Providence Journal, that the actor is “retiring from the entertainment industry and seeking to ‘simplify his life’ by selling ‘his many real estate holdings on both coasts.’ ”

Gammons revealed the actor’s brother and mother recently died, and that he hoped to spend time on photography, antiquing and playing Texas Hold’em poker, according to the Journal. »

Antonio Banderas to Star as Pablo Picasso in ‘Genius’ Season 2 at Nat Geo

6 September 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Antonio Banderas has signed on to star as Pablo Picasso in National Geographic’s “Genius” Season 2, Variety has learned.

The artistic career of Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispín Crispiniano María Remedios de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso spanned more than 80 years. His work challenged and reinvented the world’s perceptions of art and creativity. The prolific artist generated an estimated 50,000 works, among the most notable being “The Old Guitarist” from his Blue Period, now on display at the Art Institute of Chicago; “Guernica,” inspired by the Nazi bombing of a small Spanish town of the same name, recently displayed at the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid; and “Les Demoiselles D’Avignon,” now on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

In addition, the artist’s personal life was equally intriguing. He lived most of his life in Paris during the first half of the 20th century and crossed paths »

From Almodóvar’s parade to the Security of Hollywood: Antonio Banderas’ cinematic journey

4 July 2017 5:15 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Antonio Banderas is one of the more recognisable faces (and certainly one of the most recognisable voices) in Hollywood. His presence in front of the camera is tangible, and the variety of roles he enjoys now is testament to a versatility few could have expected of the man who came to Tinsel Town barely speaking a word of English.

He has been a masked legend (twice, one furry – the other not so), played with another kind of mask (horrifcally so – see the final note), appeared opposite the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Spongebob Squarepants. He’s done it all, and now a new film of his arrives on DVD this week.

Security sees the actor as an ex-Special Forces vet taking a job as a security guard. On his first night he rescues a young girl fleeing from a hijacked convey, »

Trailer Watch: Salma Hayek Takes on a Trump-Like Figure in “Beatriz at Dinner”

5 June 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Beatriz at Dinner

If you find dinner parties awkward, prepare to cringe your way through a new trailer for Salma Hayek-starrer “Beatriz at Dinner.” Beatriz (Hayek) has way more to deal with than dinner companions droning on about their boring jobs or chewing with their mouths open. The party escalates into an all-out war.

“At an elegant dinner party in a swanky hilltop home, conversation between a soft-spoken holistic healer and a hard-nosed businessman explodes into a bitter clash of cultures,” the film’s synopsis details.

The spot shows how Beatriz wasn’t initially invited to the party. She came to practice on the host (Connie Britton, “Nashville”) before the festivities kicked off and car trouble prevented her from leaving.

At the dinner table, Beatriz begins a story: “When I first came to the United States a long time ago — .” She’s interrupted mid-sentence by the wildly obnoxious billionaire, Doug (John Lithgow), who asks, “Did you come legally?”

Doug values profit over people and the future of the environment. “The world is dying,” Beatriz says. Unfazed and unimpressed, a smirking Doug responds, “Elephants are dying, bees are dying.” Doug will undoubtedly earn comparisons to another privileged businessman who denies climate change and is suspicious of — and hostile towards — immigrants.

Hayek received an Oscar nomination in 2003 for her role in “Frida,” Julie Taymor’s Frida Kahlo biopic. “Septembers of Shiraz,” “30 Rock,” and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” are among her other credits.

Beatriz at Dinner” made its world premiere at Sundance in January. The ensemble cast includes Chloë Sevigny (“Bloodline”) and Amy Landecker (“Transparent”). Directed by Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl”), “Beatriz at Dinner” hits theaters June 9.

Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins On Why She Prefers Film Over Digital

23 May 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Film or digital? This is a conversation that has permeated movie geeks for the past 15 or so years. Ever since the early 2000s when Robert Rodriguez shot Once Upon a Time in Mexico on film, and when George Lucas started pioneering the format, the debate has taken over. Which is better, and can anyone really tell the difference? Time has seen digital quickly take over the landscape, with everything from indie flicks to big Marvel Studios blockbusters shooting digitally. From a process standpoint, it tends to be a lot faster, and from a financial standpoint, a bit cheaper. And when 95 percent of the audience can’t tell the difference, why even bother going to film, right?

Filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan, however, have been fighting the good fight, doing what they can to ensure that film survives in today’s growing digital landscape. Nowadays, it seems like it »

Trailer Watch: Salma Hayek Goes to the Dinner Party from Hell in “Beatriz at Dinner”

17 April 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Beatriz at Dinner

A trailer has landed for Salma Hayek-starrer “Beatriz at Dinner,” and the spot is full of cringe-inducing moments. “This woman is a saint. It’s like birds fly out of the sky and land on her shoulder,” we’re told of Beatriz (Hayek), a spiritual health practitioner attending a dinner party. Seconds later, Beatriz is asked by a fellow guest, “Can I get another bourbon, hon?” Everyone else attending the party is white. “Oh, you were hovering. I just assumed you were part of the staff,” an unapologetic, boorish, Donald Trump-like real estate mogul named Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) says. And things only get worse from there.

At the dinner table, Beatriz begins a story: “When I first came to the United States a long time ago — .” She’s interrupted mid-sentence by the billionaire, who asks, “Did you come legally?” Rather than admonishing Doug for his inexcusable rudeness, the other guests try to change the subject by commenting on the meal.

“I think fate brought us together,” Beatriz tells Doug. But the smug businessman has no interest in what Beatriz has to offer. “The world doesn’t need your feelings,” he says. “It needs jobs. It needs money. It needs what I do.”

Hayek received an Oscar nomination in 2003 for her role in “Frida,” Julie Taymor’s Frida Kahlo biopic. “Septembers of Shiraz,” “30 Rock,” and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” are among her other credits.

Beatriz at Dinner” made its world premiere at Sundance in January. The ensemble cast includes Connie Britton (“Nashville”), Chloë Sevigny (“Bloodline”), and Amy Landecker (“Transparent”). Directed by Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl”), “Beatriz at Dinner” hits theaters June 9.
