Coming Distractions: Billy Bob Thornton’s still pretty effing dirty in the new Bad Santa 2 trailer

21 September 2016 6:29 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Here’s some reassurance for anyone worried that 13 years and a new director might have taken some of the venom out of the Bad Santa movies: a new trailer for the upcoming Bad Santa 2 that thoroughly earns its red band status. Featuring stars Billy Bob Thornton, Tony Cox, and Brett Kelly—all returning from the first movie—and adding in Kathy Bates and Christina Hendricks, the promo is just as foul-mouthed, if not moreso, than Tony Zwigoff’s 2003 original.

Featuring, in no particular order, Thornton’s character punching his mom in the face, a felching reference, and some incredibly graphic references to female anatomy, the trailer sees director Mark Waters traveling far afield from the worlds of Mean Girls or Freaky Friday. You can see the yuletide depravity for yourself up above, or just wait until November 23, when Bad Santa 2 will cheerfully invite the entire ...

Mean Girls director Mark Waters to helm Disney’s Magic Camp

17 September 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Tracking Board, director Mark Waters (Mean Girls) has signed on to direct Disney’s long-gestating live-action family comedy Magic Camp, which has Steve Martin attached to star.

The site reports that Magic Camp “follows a rigid and cautious banker who returns to the summer camp he attended as a boy: a camp for magic. His return to the camp is as a fun counselor to help out the young group of rag-tag magicians, but privately he also has an eye on winning the Golden Wand competition.”

Along with a new director, screenwriters Noah Harpster and Micah Fitzerman-Blue have been brought in to work on the script, taking over from Max Winkler and Matthew Spicer, who only joined the project back in July.

The project will mark Waters’ second collaboration with Disney, having previously helmed the 2003 comedy Freaky Friday starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan. His next offering, »

Mean Girls director set for Magic Camp

6 September 2016 11:01 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 7, 2016

Mark Waters is set to bring the long-in-gestation, not Harry-Potter-like Magic Camp to the big screen...

Disney is moving ahead with a new live action family comedy – and it’s hired Mean Girls helmer Mark Waters to bring it to the screen.

Magic Camp tells the story of a boring banker who heads back to the summer camp that he went to when he was a child. And as you might guess from the title, it’s a camp for magic.

This time, he’s the camp counsellor, and the challenge is to assemble his young charges and to try and win the Golden Wand (it sounds a bit Tri-Wizard Tournament-y, but let’s go with it). It’s a project that’s been in gestation at Disney for some time, and the latest draft of the screenplay is being penned by Noah Harpster and Micah Fitzerman-Blue. »

Nine Lives review – a feline comedy with no claws

21 August 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kevin Spacey is a pompous businessman trapped in a cat’s body, with far from hilarious results

Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is unrepentantly unpleasant and impossibly wealthy. He’s more interested in the progress of his new building – think a Trump Tower-style priapic monument to ego – than he is in his family. Then an encounter with Christopher Walken, clad in a leprechaun-green suit, sees Tom imprisoned in the body of an adorable feline named Mr Fuzzypants. Tom must learn a few valuable life lessons if he ever wants to regain his human form. Like a bargain-basement version of Freaky Friday crossed with a cat meme, the comedy here is inert, despite the efforts of a psychotically chipper musical score.

Killjoys Season 2 Episode 5 Review: Meet the Parents

30 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

I'll be honest, I can't say I'll miss Pawter's folks even though they went out heroes.

Both teams spent time with their wretched parents, but we quickly realized the elders were being tough attempting to make their kids stronger. Was the time wasted worth it though? Killjoys Season 2 Episode 5 proved there's always room for forgiveness.

There were so many great comedic moments here. Man, I just love Johnny Jaqobis.

Watch Killjoys Season 2 Episode 5 Online

Sure, I realize the Killjoys still have to chase warrants while piecing together the larger mysteries of the Quad, but man those "voice-box" Skeever dudes were just plain nasty. Weren't they?

I was hoping this installment might pick up with Khlyen and Fancy Lee, but I guess they had to get the action sequence out of the way early.  

Since Johnny's scenes were going to take place on Qresh with Pawter and her parents, I was »

Lindsay Lohan agrees to turn on Kettering Christmas lights

1 July 2016 4:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 1, 2016

After her tweets were raised in parliament, Lindsay Lohan has agreed to turn on the Christmas lights in the UK town of Kettering...

Of all the consequences from last week's EU referendum result, here's one we weren't expecting: Parent Trap actress Linday Lohan agreeing to turn on the Christmas lights in a small-ish town in Northamptonshire.

The curious story began on the 24th June, when Lohan wrote a series of tweets expressing her backing for the Remain campaign. Among one of several tweets (which has been deleted since), Lohan wrote, "Sorry, but Kettering where are you."

That tweet came to the the attention of Conservative MP Philip Hollobone, who brought the subject up in the House of Commons. Calling Lohan's tweet "fierce and offensive," Hollobone said the actress was "implying that no one knew where [Kettering] was."

"Apart from the fact it might be the most average town in the country, »

Prominent Casting Director Blasts Pay-to-Play Audition Practices: "More Like a Speed-Dating Scenario"

28 June 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Veteran casting director Marci Liroff, who is currently spearheading a Casting Society of America committee to probe widespread pay-to-play audition practices, has harshly criticized the industry’s practices, according to a memo obtained by The Hollywood Reporter and recently circulated among the embattled casting workshop owners she was apprising. Liroff’s long list of film credits runs from E.T. the Extra Terrestrial and Footloose to Freaky Friday and Mean Girls. The Csa committee was established in April, weeks after THR published an investigation into the proliferating pay-to-play scene. Since then, its most prominent practitioner, Criminal Minds casting director

Top Movies for Adults Who Are Kids at Heart

7 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Being an adult is hard: There are bills to pay, jobs to go to, and families to care for. Everyone has days when they wish they could go back to high school -- or elementary school -- and live in a world where the only responsibility is turning in homework on time. Most adults feel like overgrown teenagers at some point in their lives. If this sounds like you, these five movies should have a permanent spot in your DVD rotation.

'Big' (1988)

The seminal classic for any adult who feels like a kid, "Big" tells the story of Josh Baskin, a 13-year-old who makes a simple wish on a creepy machine at a carnival. He wants to be "big." The next morning, he wakes up in the body of Tom Hanks and has to learn to navigate the waters of being an adult until he can reverse his wish. Tom Hanks »

From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »

9 Screen-to-Broadway Disney Musicals

17 March 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Disney Theatrical Productions, sometimes known as Disney on Broadway, is responsible for some of the most magical moments you’re likely to experience on the Great White Way. When Disney vet Ron Logan first founded Walt Disney Theatrical in 1993, fresh off the success of “Beauty and the Beast,” he could only have imagined how far the onstage empire would extend; with musical greats such as Alan Menken and Tim Rice writing brilliant tunes for big-screen hit after big-screen hit, theatrical productions were a logical—yet thrillingly ambitious—next step. Today, Disney’s run of critically and commercially successful screen-to-stage shows continues, and not just on Broadway. “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” has enjoyed several regional productions, and “The Jungle Book” has bowed in Chicago and Boston. Meanwhile, a slew of other movies are in varying stages of development as Disney musicals: “The Princess Bride,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Freaky Friday,” “Father of the Bride, »

Watch: 10-Year-Old Lindsay Lohan in ‘The Parent Trap’

29 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Remember how brilliant Lindsay Lohan was in “The Parent Trap”? More than just little-kid cute, she made portraying two diametrically different twins look easy, using her expressive features and innate charm to give the classic comedy a fresh twist. Playing both Annie and Hallie James paved the way for other fun roles in reboots for Lohan—“Freaky Friday” and “Herbie: Fully Loaded”—followed by a slew of compelling performances in “A Prairie Home Companion,” “Bobby,” and, of course, “Mean Girls.” If the launch of Lohan’s career could be traced to any one moment, it might be the screen test below. Opposite “Parent Trap” co-star Dennis Quaid as her character’s father, the 10-year-old Lohan recites her lines with such convincing naturalness, it’s almost jarring when the two actors break character. Screen tests can be scary, especially for young actors on the cusp of booking a big role. But »
