Kim Kardashian Takes Her Growing Baby Bump on a Family Outing

27 July 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kim Kardashian's baby bump has officially popped! The reality star, who is expecting a baby boy with her husband, Kanye West, stepped out with her family on Sunday to catch a showing of The Phantom of the Opera at Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. The California heat didn't seem to bother Kim, as she looked relaxed and gorgeous in a skintight dress that showed off her curves. Kim's sister Kourtney, who recently split from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick, showed him what he's missing in a low-cut top. Kendall and Kylie Jenner were also in attendance, as well as Kris Jenner and her boyfriend, Corey Gamble. The Kardashian outing is the just the latest we've seen of Kim's bump. In July alone, the reality star stepped out for a cute movie date with daughter North, went on a shopping spree in La, and traveled to Paris. Keep reading to »

“Good Luck is Bad Luck” and the Theatrical Superstitions of ‘The Gallows’

10 July 2015 9:19 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The first time I performed on stage, I was cast as a lead in a baseball musical in the first grade. The rest of the cast was comprised of 3rd graders who were Furious that a first grader was given a lead, but I apparently didn’t suck and I nabbed a starring role. My parents sat in the back of the auditorium next to the door just in case I was awful and they needed to sneak out. Luckily, I took to the stage the way a duck takes to water and I’ve been singing and acting on stage ever since. As I write this, I’ve returned home from an opening night performance of The Pajama Game, a performance I put on only hours after having caught a showing of the newest Blumhouse project, The Gallows.

A paint-by-numbers found footage horror film, The Gallows is sort of the anti-High School Musical. »

5 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Comics on Film: Could 'Batman Unchained' Have Saved Superhero Movies in the '90s?

22 June 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  Joel Schumacher is a name that lives in infamy with Batman fans around the world. Although the director of A Time to Kill and The Phantom of the Opera was primarily known for crafting darker movies in the mid-1990s, things changed when he was given the keys to the kingdom of DC Comics' Dark Knight.   After the somewhat polarizing reception to 1992's Batman Returns, Warner Bros. wanted to take the franchise in a bit of a different direction. Previous series director Tim Burton would transition into a producer capacity for the upcoming third film, and Schumacher was selected to direct what ultimately became 1995's Batman Forever. That film was the series' biggest financial success up to that point, so it...

You Won't Believe Kelly Clarkson's Cover of "B*tch Better Have My Money"

4 June 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Kelly Clarkson, one of American Idol's biggest success stories and confirmed queen of covers, has put her own spin on an unlikely track: Rihanna's "B*tch Better Have My Money." Clarkson did the rendition for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, and - dare we say - she nailed it. It almost sounds like a completely different song, except for all the "brrap, brrap, brrap"s, of course. Check it out above, and don't miss Clarkson and Josh Groban's cover of "All I Ask of You" from The Phantom of the Opera. »

Liftoff in T-minus...Never mind! Sarah Brightman has spent the last few months training for a 10-day trip to the International Space Station in September, but it looks as if it may have been for naught. On Wednesday, May 13, the famed soprano announced that she had decided to postpone the mission for "personal family reasons." Brightman, 54 — who was married to Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and originated the role of Christine Daae in his classic, blockbuster musical The Phantom of the Opera — was supposed to [...] »

Even Sondheim Fans Might Choose to Avoid Venturing "Into the Woods"

26 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Behold! A great smorgasbord of genre-specific characters packed into a single narrative! No, not the ABC (i.e. Disney) fairy tale mashup show Once Upon A Time. And not the Gothic mosaic that is Penny Dreadful. Or the superhero ensembles of the Justice League and Avengers. Nor even the upcoming villainous cadre of Suicide Squad. This is “art:” Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s 1986 Broadway triumph, Into the Woods, that managed to eek out three Tony Awards in a year mostly ruined for all other contenders by the arrival of Broadway’s now longest running show, The Phantom of the Opera. Ever since that first Broadway run, and every subsequent tour, restaging, and revival, Into the Woods has been a favorite of Drama Departments in liberal arts schools across the country. Sondheim aficionados can’t stop singing his praises, but, unfortunately, very few of them sang anything other than, “Get me out of these woods, »

Kelly Clarkson and Josh Groban's Phantom of the Opera Duet Is Seriously Magical

15 April 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Josh Groban and Kelly Clarkson have some of the strongest voices in the music industry, so you can imagine how insane a duet must sound. The two of them have joined forces for a song from Groban's upcoming Stages album, which will consist of covers from famous musicals. Here, they're singing "All I Ask of You" from The Phantom of the Opera, and it's gorgeous. I dare you to listen and tell me these two shouldn't be on Broadway together, because it's that great. Listen below, and maybe we'll get to hear more from the album before it drops on April 28! »

Hollywood & Broadway: Studios Rush to the Stage Despite Clashing Business Models

7 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Hollywood merges with Broadway, there are always fender-benders.

Just ask Harvey Weinstein.

As the movie aficionado and awards maven steered “Finding Neverland,” his first venture as a lead theater producer, toward the Great White Way, eyebrows raised in his wake.

He switched press agents. He swapped out the lead actors. He entirely scrapped an earlier version of the musical with a different creative team. When in spring 2014, he landed a much-coveted spot for the show on the Tony Awards telecast, naysayers tut-tutted that the play hadn’t even begun performances out of town, much less confirmed its Broadway run. Besides, Jennifer Hudson, the star of the Tonys segment, wouldn’t even be appearing in the actual stage production.

“I was criticized for Jennifer,” Weinstein recalls. “But this song (‘Neverland’) has been downloaded a million times, and all over the world people now know ‘Finding Neverland.’ In the movie business, »

Anniversaries: Johann Sebastian Bach Born 330 Years Ago on March 21, 1685

21 March 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) never left Germany but became internationally respected by his peers during his lifetime and a symbol of pure musicianship for future generations. A virtuoso organist, harpsichordist, and violinist/violist who may have also played lute, as a composer his mastery of counterpoint and fugal writing remain unmatched, yet he was also open to the influences of contemporary Italian and French composers.

Born into a highly musical family in Eisenach, Germany, Bach became organist at the Neukirche in Arnstadt in 1703 at the age of 18. His first major appointment was as court organist to Duke Wilhelm Ernst of Weimar, in 1708; six years later the Duke made him Concertmaster. In 1717 Bach became Kapellmeister and music director to the music-loving Prince Leopold of Anhalt in Cöthen, where Bach wrote much of his greatest secular music. Bach's duties switched to writing choral and organ music for use in church services »
