14 September 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Taran Killam unceremoniously (and unexpectedly) got the boot from Saturday Night Live this summer, but that's not his complaint. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 34-year-old comic opened up about the departure, saying he wished he could have thanked his longtime coworkers. "My gripe, if there's any - and I really don't have many - [is that] I'm a sentimental guy and I would have liked to have been given the chance to do some proper goodbyes and thank yous to all the people I worked with for six years," Killam shared. On the bright side, Killam is happy to leave »

11 August 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Showtime is looking to partner with Stephen Colbert to give election night viewers an alternative to news coverage.

The network is in talks to air a live election special hosted by the host from sister CBS’ “The Late Show.”

“Stephen wants to do it, I want to do it, the studio wants to do it,” Showtime president David Nevins told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “It will be Colbert unfettered. He’s promised to say a few curse words, which is important. It’s something I’ve been trying to get him to do for a while. I think it will be great.”

The special will be shot on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” set and produced by the “Late Show” staff.

Warner’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” remained at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts for the week ended July 31, with five newcomers landing in the top 10.

Universal Pictures’ “The Boss,” a comedy with Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Bell that earned $63 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 2 on the Npd VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD unit sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.

The Broad Green Layoffs: Why Good Movies Aren’t Enough to Avoid The Startup Curse

20 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Wall Street billionaires Gabriel Hammond, 37, and his brother, Daniel, 33, launched independent producer-distributor Broad Green Pictures two summers ago, Hollywood was skeptical about its prospects. In a time when even the Weinsteins are struggling to survive, it was a strange time to reinvent a dying economic model.

Now Broad Green is laying off around 6 percent of its staff, all of whom work in the publicity department, the company confirmed to IndieWire. Broad Green’s publicity head Adam Keen, a former Warner Bros. publicity exec, has resigned. Marketing and communications personnel are traditionally the first casualties of cutbacks in Hollywood.

The layoffs were unsurprising. Ken Kwapis’s Sundance comedy “A Walk in the Woods” starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte managed $30 million, but that couldn’t counterbalance films like Ramin Bahrani’s well-reviewed real estate thriller “99 Homes” ($1.7 million domestic) and Sarah Silverman’s depressive drama “I Smile Back” ($58K).

Movie Review – Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016)

17 June 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Barbershop: The Next Cut (a.k.a. Barbershop: A Fresh Cut) (2016)

Directed by Malcolm D. Lee

Starring Ice Cube, Robert Teitel, Cedric the Entertainer, Regina Hall, Sean Patrick Thomas, Eve, Anthony Anderson, Jazsmin Lewis-Kelley, Common, Nicki Minaj, Margot Bingham, Lamorne Morris, Deon Cole, Reggie Brown, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Tyga, J.B. Smoove, Deon Cole

Synopsis

Employees at the barbershop look to solve the gang-related violence that has taken its hold on the local community.

It’s been 12 years since the last outing of the Barbershop franchise (11 if you want to include its spin-off), and it’s nice to see many of them return as well as the arrival of some new faces. As these films have gained greater recognition and a growing fan-base over years, one glaring concern would be that of quality: could they recapture the magic and chemistry given the time-lapse? Could the director of Scary Movie 5 live up to such standards? »

Barbershop: A Fresh Cut review: “Witty, charismatic, and smart.”

15 June 2016 11:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Barbershop A Fresh Cut review: The third instalment comes a decade after the party, and although hair still need cutting, is there anything left to say?

Barbershop A Fresh Cut review by Luke Ryan Baldock, June 2016.

Barbershop A Fresh Cut review

Back in 2002 a low-key comedy known as Barbershop was a surprise smash. From a budget of $12 million it took in $75 million at the Us box office. A 2004 sequel doubled the budget and was still successful with $65 million domestically, while a 2005 spin-off, Beauty Shop kept the second film’s $30 million budget but only made $35 million at home. None of the films have found success abroad though, with only the first film making more than $1 million overseas. Over a decade since its last venture, the Barbershop is back in Barbershop: A Fresh Cut, reuniting many of the original cast while also adding in some newcomers such as Nicki Minaj.

The barbershop franchise has excelled by exploring a microcosm of a specific community/ethnic group, and containing it within an isolated place that represents the community. It’s something that Britain did a decade before with the sitcom Desmonds. However, the late 1980s black community of London was vastly different from the early 2000s black community in Chicago. Issues such as crime, community, and small business versus big business were all tackled making for richer than usual comedies. In the last half a decade, star and producer Ice Cube, has had huge successes such as the 21 Jump Street films and the Ride Along franchise. Does returning to this franchise suggest it has something new in its arsenal to cover?

Barbershop A Fresh Cut review

Happily, or rather sadly, it does. Barbershop: A Fresh Cut looks at gang culture in Chicago in a less than subtle way. Calvin (Cube), continues to run his Barbershop which has now joined forces with a beauty salon, offering up much well paced dialogue in the battle of the sexes. However, as an opening narration explains, Chicago has fallen to bitter rivalries in the street, resulting in Calvin declaring a no gun policy in his shop. As the regular staff and clientele meet and discuss the ways of the world, ways of the past, and everything in between, Calvin’s son Jalen (Michael Rainey Jr.) is slowly seduced by a gang. The tensions encourage Calvin and his shop to negotiate a ceasefire between the gangs.

Barbershop: A Fresh Cut’s biggest plus is its heart. Obviously spurned on by tackling actual issues, the film may be heavy-handed a lot of the time when dealing out messages, golden glowing flashbacks and needlessly placed narration stopping the film in its tracks, but it makes the film more poignant and necessary than many comedy sequels arriving over a decade since their last entry. The cast assembled also have fantastic charisma and chemistry, playing off each other in lengthy dialogue segments that wouldn’t go amiss during a play or stand-up comedy gig. Cedric the Entertainer returns to give some less PC humour as the elder barber who claims to have once been President Obama’s barber, while younger newcomers such as Raja (Utkarsh Ambudkar) and Jerrod (Lamorne Morris) are inserted to give the views of non-black American minorities and young black males who don’t conform to ‘thuglife’ masculine stereotype respectively. As each character has a reason to exist, it makes for a well rounded feature with a lot of discussion.

Barbershop A Fresh Cut review

Despite the serious sounding nature, there is still room for plenty of laugh out loud moments, but the film stutters as it navigates through tone. Some scenes involving the gangs are extraordinarily intense and very uncomfortable. Meanwhile, there’s also an infidelity/temptation subplot involving Rashad (Common), his work focused wife Terri (Eve) and beautician Draya (Minaj). It’s a fine serviceable story which is played out well and gives sweet moments to all, but it is also dwarfed by and is intrusive of the bigger picture.

Malcolm D. Lee’s direction is thankfully unambitious, allowing for the stars to command the screen and their dialogue to keep the pace. Barbershop: A Fresh Cut stands out in the comedic crowd for attempting to tackle pressing social issues while also offering enough laughs and drama for all audiences. Witty, charismatic, and smart, Barbershop: A Fresh Cut may need a few snips and trims in places, but it’s also brave and bold.

Barbershop: A Fresh Cut review by Luke Ryan Baldock, June 2016

Barbershop: A Fresh Cut is released in cinemas from 17th June.

Alix Madigan Departs Broad Green as Head of Creative Affairs

1 June 2016 3:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alix Madigan is departing fast-growing Broad Green Pictures as head of creative affairs to return to her roots as an independent producer.

The split is amicable and comes as Broad Green ramps up its efforts to aim at the mainstream market with such fare as ensemble dance comedy “Step Sisters,” Bryan Cranston’s drug drama “The Infiltrator” and Billy Bob Thornton’s comedy “Bad Santa 2.”

Broad Green, operated by brothers Daniel and Gabriel Hammond, shifted focus last month by hiring “Straight Outta Compton” producer Matt Alvarez as president of production. Board Green’s biggest box office success so far was “A Walk in the Woods” with $30 million, but arthouse fare such as Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” have not broken out.

Alvarez has a strong track record with producing credits including “Friday,” “Barbershop” and “Ride Along.”

Madigan was hired in September from Anonymous Content, where she was a »

‘Ride Along 2′ Review

Stars: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Olivia Munn, Benjamin Bratt, Tika Sumpter, Bruce McGill, Sherri Shepherd, Arturo del Puerto, Carlos Gómez | Written by Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi | Directed by Tim Story

Once again directed by Tim Story, who previously worked with Ice Cube on Barbershop and the first film in this series, Ride Along 2 is yet another Ice Cube starring, stereotypical buddy-comedy and like all good buddy comedies it lives and dies by its cast. Last time the chemistry between Kevin Hart and Ice Cube felt stilted and forced, leaving this reviewer a little cold – will it be any different this time round?

Ride Along 2 picks up the story about a year after our heroes’ last adventure. Not content to work as a beat cop, Ben (Hart), a recent academy graduate, now aspires to be a detective like his soon-to-be brother-in-law. However, James (Cube) still doesn’t »
