Interview: Jack Black and Richard Curtis Talk Red Nose Day USA Live Benefit

18 May 2015 5:27 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Having the natural ability to enthrallingly captivate audiences, particularly by naturally infusing both comedy and important sentiments into their lives as you bring them into other worlds, is an essential skill of all entertainers. But also possessing the pure passion to lead by example, and emphasize the importance of helping others without expecting anything in return, is also a vital characteristic that proves how admirable a public figure truly is overall. Actor Jack Black and writer-director-producer Richard Curtis (‘Love Actually,’ ‘About Time’) commendably not only bring their fans into intriguing worlds in their films, but are also working to reverse the harrowing effects that plague children and young adults who  [ Read More ]

Vote now: Can 8 of our favourite fictional Prime Ministers beat the real one?

8 May 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As Britain digests the results of its General Election, a look back at some of the most memorable prime ministers from TV and the movies reveals a bunch only marginally more disconcerting than some of the real-life options.

Operating on a scale from complete idiocy through to full-blown murderous villainy, were they actually on the ballot paper, you'd probably do well to think twice before putting an X in their box. But you can be sure of one terrifying thought - someone out there would.

So who would you vote for, given the choice between the real prime minister and 8 of TV and film's most memorable premiers? Find out more about our fictional candidates below...

‘Boy Meets Girl’ Review

6 May 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Galante, Michelle Hendley, Jean Devereux Koester, Ethan Major, Scott Martineck, Christopher McHale, Benj Mirman, Randall Newsome, Jacob Perkins, Joseph Ricci | Written and Directed by Eric Schaeffer

My gender identity is complex, but my life experiences intersect frequently with those of trans women and it’s a category I feel proud to be partially resident in.  I dress femme, I’m starting estrogen in a couple weeks, I’ve flirted with voice training, and when I go out for a walk it’s pretty solid odds that at least one passer-by is going to scream some shopworn slur at me.  This review was a deeply personal experience for me, and it’s as much a breakdown of my thoughts on life as a trans person as it is a dissection of a sweet, uncomplicated rom-com.

There are several longstanding traditions in Western film and television regarding trans women.  First, »

Alan Rickman: having a film career is a bit of a surprise

16 April 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The British actor-director revealed stories from Die Hard, Harry Potter, Robin Hood and his latest film, A Little Chaos.

Alan Rickman entertained a select audience in London last night with stories from nearly 30 years in movies.

Speaking on stage at the latest BAFTA: A Life In Pictures event, the actor-director revealed how his first exposure to film was at school with titles like Ealing comedy The Titfield Thunderbolt, before going to art school and encountering his first major influences: Antonioni and Fellini.

“But I don’t know that I thought this would be part of my life,” he recalled. “To be perfectly honest, having a film career at all is a bit of a surprise.”

After going to Rada at 25, Rickman established himself on stage and TV, and didn’t star in his first film until his early 40s. That film just happened to be the blockbuster action hit Die Hard.

He won the »

Theater Review: An Illuminating Skylight

2 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It may not at first make sense that two such fundamentally different acting styles as Bill Nighy’s and Carey Mulligan’s should co-exist in — and mutually enhance — one play. And yet here they are in David Hare’s Skylight, a monkey and a moonbeam, somehow bringing the same story to thrilling life. Nighy, as will be obvious to anyone who saw him in Love Actually or as Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, is the monkey, or perhaps better to call him a Catherine wheel of tics and poses and stutters and quirks. “Mannered” is not a strong enough word to describe the way he creates the illusion of character from a million incessant, if apparently spontaneous, affectations. (At several points, he struts across the stage sideways, his long legs pointing into the wings while his face stares down the audience.) Meanwhile, as she did in »

American Idol: Who Slayed a Kelly Clarkson Song?

American Idol took it back to the beginning on Wednesday with the Top 9 performing the songs of season 1 winner - and this week's mentor - Kelly Clarkson. Some contestants stuck close to the original versions (as Nick Fradiani did with "Catch My Breath"), others gave Clarkson's hits an interesting twist (as newly engaged Joey Cook did with "Miss Independent"), but it was Clark Beckham, 22, who gave the performance of the evening. "I have goosies from head to toe," judge Jennifer Lopez told Beckham after giving him a standing ovation for his rendition of Clarkson's "The Trouble with Love Is," which »

TV Review: ‘Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot’

29 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A rare romance from the typically dark imagination of children’s book author Roald Dahl, “Esio Trot” spells more than just “tortoise” backwards, but an evening of warm-fuzzy feelings all around as Dustin Hoffman’s Mr. Hoppy devises an elaborate scheme to woo the chelonian-loving widow downstairs, as played by Judi Dench. Commissioned as a New Year’s telepic for British TV, this delightful family offering is already making its way to homevideo in several European markets, but could potentially support a more substantial treatment Stateside, if someone were to shell out for theatrical (exec producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein bought all other U.S. rights).

Judging by Hoffman and Dench’s involvement alone, this is no ordinary TV movie. Co-written by “Love Actually’s” Richard Curtis (who shares credit with Paul Mayhew-Archer) and directed by smallscreen miracle worker Dearbhla Walsh (“Little Dorrit,” “Shameless”), the film has been crafted with »

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

Weekend Box Office: Cinderella's Wish Comes True, Run All Night Trips and Falls

15 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Disney demonstrated an uncanny ability to be consistent with live action films based on its animated classics while Liam Neeson had one of the worst opening weekends of the last decade. Cinderella danced into theaters with a strong number one, banking $70 million. That's almost the exact amount Maleficent took in on its opening weekend last May. It's also the highest opening for a movie helmed by Kenneth Branagh, topping the $65 million opening for Thor in 2011. Neeson's latest Run All Night ranked a very distant second place with just $11 million. The painful start is less than half of the worst of the Taken movies and the second lowest for a non-wide-release Neeson movie since 2003's Love Actually (The Next Three Days opened with just $6 million in 2010). For the full weekend top ten, check out the chart below: 1.Cinderella (2015) *   $70,053,000 Total: $70,053,000 Lw: N      Thtrs: 3,845 2.Run All Night *   $11,015,000 Total: $11,015,000 Lw: N      Thtrs: 3,171 3.Kingsman: The »
