Meryl Streep helps prove that romance doesn't end at 60

16 December 2009 8:00 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

I want you to think hard for a second. I realize this is might be diametrically opposed to all the warm-holiday fuzzies you’re feeling right now. And those three gingerbread cookies you ate in lieu of lunch probably aren’t helping either. But here goes: When is the last time you saw a woman over 60 played the lead in a romantic comedy for a major studio?

No, not Diane Keaton. She was 57 when she made Something’s Got to Give. No, not Susan Sarandon. She was 58 when she made Shall We Dance? No, not Helen Mirren. She was 61 when she made The Queen, but while you may have swooned at her portrayal of Elizabeth II it was in hardly a fluffy rom-com. No, if memory serves me you have to go back to 1995 when, at age 61, Sophia Loren starred in Grumpier Old Men. And the men she was romancing »

A Brief History of Bollywood Sex and Romance

24 June 2009 11:04 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

You can't beat the Bollywood classics for their overt romantic tension, where intimate touching (yes, even kissing!) was replaced with the poetic, polite innuendo of hot rain and wet clothing. It's funny that they'd be so reserved about what happens between consenting adults, considering India is the second most populous country in the world. (We know they're doing it!) In some ways, however, B'wood has become more relaxed in its attitudes, as younger, Western-influenced generations come of age and make waves in an industry built on tradition. Previously unseen "taboos" like pre-marital sex, onscreen nudity and even wife-swapping have curiously been passed by the Central Board of Film Certification, the strict watchdog equivalent of the MPAA that has served as a censor since the early '50s. Gathered below is a look at the landmark moments and trends that have raised eyebrows through Bollywood history.

Jackie Chan’s Shinjuku Incident on DVD

24 June 2009 12:58 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Good news Jackie Fans. Marking a rare return to a fully dramatic role, Chan’s controversial and violent crime thriller Shinjuku Incident arrives on English friendly DVD and Blu-ray next month. Along with the main man Shinjuku inclucdes an impressive cast including: Daniel Wu (Protégé), Fan Bing Bing (Lost in Beijing), Xu Jing Lei (Warlords), and Japan's Takenaka Naoto (Shall We Dance?) and Kato Masaya (Brother). One detail about the disc we are still trying to confirm is around the “uncut” tag it’s sporting. The original fully uncut film was given a category III (the highest there is in Hk) rating, but this is quoted as a IIb classification, which relates to slightly a shortened - less gorey - theatrically release. More on that when we get it. »

Jackie Chan’s ‘Shinjuku Incident’ up for pre-order from YesAsia

17 June 2009 7:41 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Jackie Chan leads an all-star Asian cast in the 2009 gangster blockbuster Shinjuku Incident. The hard-hitting crime thriller from One Nite in Mongkok and Protege director Derek Yee follows the brutal conflicts of illegal Chinese immigrants fighting to survive in the gritty underbelly of Tokyo’s Shinjuku district. Chan takes on a rare dramatic role as a Chinese laborer who gets mixed up with the Japanese mob, entering a violent life of no return. Hong Kong star Daniel Wu (Protege), Japanese actors Takenaka Naoto (Shall We Dance?) and Kato Masaya (Brother), and Chinese actresses Xu Jinglei (The Warlords) and Fan Bingbing (A Battle of Wits) join Chan in this unforgiving gray world of turf wars, ethnic tensions, and back-stabbing power struggles. YesAsia

Contributing reviewer James Marsh was sort of ‘meh’ about it but if you like then by all means don’t let us stop you. The Blu-ray version is all »

Box Office Weekend Ahead – Can Hannah Montana stop Fast and Furious?

10 April 2009 | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Disney unspools its next teen-drawing venture in “Hannah Montana: The Movie” into 3,115 venues, certainly pulling in tons of fans of the eagerly followed series. The question? Do they have what it takes to down “Fast and Furious” in its sophomore weekend at play? “Furious” has turned in the biggest gross of the year so far with $70.9 million grossed and a total of over $85 million pocketed thus far. “Montana” is helmed by Peter Chelsom, known for crowd-pleasing films like “The Mighty,” “Serendipity” and “Shall We Dance.” Two other wide openers will be vying for a slice of the weekend’s earnings but should pose no threat to the first two films. The first is the mall cop comedy “Observe and Report” which finds 2,727 locations and stars the ever-popular Seth Rogen as well as Michael Peña and Anna Faris. Jody Hill of “The Foot Fist Way” directs and writers the screenplay. We »

Review: Hannah Montana: The Movie

9 April 2009 7:02 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Googly-eyed Disney muppet Miley Cyrus makes her inevitable big-screen debut in Hannah Montana: The Movie, and the nicest thing one can say about the film is that at least it's not The Suite Life of Zack & Cody: The Movie. A tweener saga that's been crafted mainly with focus-group tests in mind, Hannah's maiden cinematic offering delivers a combination of romance, humor, music, glamour and yay-country-living blather that aims to satisfy the cross-platform franchise's myriad devotees. Given Hannah's roots on a Disney channel show whose primary claim to fame is schooling young television viewers in the finer nuances of sitcom pratfalls and laugh tracks, as well as the illustrious record of director Peter Chelsom, he of Town & Country and Shall We Dance? ignominy, it's hard to feign surprise at the dispiriting results of this movie-cum-brand-marketing-tool. Yet the lengths to which it goes to satisfy a wide array of interests is, even »

'Hannah Montana' heads new trio at boxoffice

9 April 2009 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Three new wide releases will face off against "Fast & Furious" in this weekend's boxoffice drag race, but even if "Fast" downshifts into second gear, the Universal action pic should cross the finish line once again in first place.

That's what happens when a movie opens with more than $70 million in its first weekend. Repeating at No. 1 in its second weekend is almost a given.

That's "almost" as in: Even if "Fast" drops a big 60%, it will still take in more than $28 million in its sophomore session. If its hold is stronger than that, it will top the $30 million mark, and none of the three new contenders -- "Hannah Montana: The Movie," "Observe and Report" and "Dragonball Evolution" -- looks likely to ring up a bigger figure.

Six Studio Journeymen We Wish Would Return to Their Indie Roots

9 April 2009 4:39 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

There was a reason to feel queasy after watching the trailer for "The Hannah Montana Movie," and it wasn't just the sight of Miley Cyrus fighting off Tyra Banks for a pair of garish high heels. No, it was seeing the end credits that read "Directed by Peter Chelsom." That name may not mean much to most, but for those who discovered Chelsom during the mid-'90s by way of his trilogy of Blackpool-set showbiz dramedies -- the short "Treacle," 1992's "Hear My Song" and his best, the 1995 Jerry Lewis-Oliver Platt father-son vaudeville comedy "Funny Bones" -- an adaptation of a Disney Channel show is nothing short of a crushing disappointment.

Now, times are tough and filmmakers have to eat. And perhaps such disappointment comes as a result of investing too much in the auteur theory, but there is a class of filmmakers whose careers haven't gone the »
