Trends and the Lack of Originality in Hollywood

13 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Eric Bay-Andersen on trends and the lack of originality in Hollywood…

At the beginning of this year I went to the cinema and saw a preview of all the big films coming out in 2016, and it really depressed me because almost every upcoming ‘event’ film was a sequel, a re-boot, or a prequel to the re-imagined spin-off of a TV show adaptation! It’s gotten to the point where I even get disheartened by book adaptations, which is silly I know because there are so many great published stories out there that are worthy of being adapted for the big-screen. I guess I just find it sad that most film-makers these days seem to look to the best-sellers list for their inspiration, rather than their own imagination. I mean, if a new book comes out and is a big success, then of course someone will make it into a film at some point, »

‘Don’t Think Twice’ Director Blasts MPAA Over ‘Suicide Squad’s’ PG-13 Rating

3 August 2016 2:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Filmmaker and comedian Mike Birbiglia doesn’t understand why the MPAA gave his new movie “Don’t Think Twice” an R-rating while allowing the violence-laden “Suicide Squad” a PG-13.

Suicide Squad has machine gun killings and bombings and got a PG-13 rating. @Dontthinkmovie gets an R because adults smoke pot. Confusing?” Birbiglia said on Wednesday.

He later wrote “F— the MPAA” but deleted the tweet.

A spokesman for the MPAA told Variety the org declined to comment on the matter.

Filmmaker Judd Apatow, who directed and produced “Trainwreck,” “Knocked Up,” “Funny People,” “This Is 40” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin, responded sympathetically to Birbiglia on Twitter:

“Studios own the ratings board. Violence sells so they make pot and sex the scary thing so they seem caring.”

Birbiglia responded: “That makes a lot of sense and is insane.”

Film Arcade released “Don’t Think Twice,” which currently has a 100% fresh rating on »

5 Anton Yelchin Movies That Are Still Coming Out

20 June 2016 5:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2016 has taken a lot of big name talents away from us. Yesterday, yet another big blow was handed out as Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin very sadly passed away at the young age of 27. Yelchin had been a very strong talent in Hollywood going back to when he was just a young kid, and he was very much a star on the rise when he tragically died. The entertainment community and fans alike have been reeling ever since the story broke.

The news that Yelchin had died was first reported by Deadline on Sunday morning and was later confirmed by Yelchin's publicist. He was found by his friends early in the morning, pinned by his car against a brick mailbox and security gate, apparently crushed to death by his own vehicle, and no foul play is suspected. It was also recently revealed that the vehicle involved in the incident was a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, »

New Details Emerge About The Full-Frontal Male Nudity Scene In Popstar

27 May 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Here’s an interesting, out-of-nowhere bit of news: now that a few members of the press have seen the upcoming comedy Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, new information is slowly starting to trickle out about the film. One scene in particular is sticking in memory, and it surrounds a full-frontal male nudity sequence.

But the nudity in question isn’t by star Andy Samberg, or his Lonely Island troop members Akiva Shaffer or Jorma Taccone. The scene in question sees Conner4Real (Samberg) in a limo with his buddies when fans swarm around the car from all sides. As various women present themselves, as they say, to the guys, a window is rolled down and an opportunistic male fan displays his penis for Conner to sign.

According to /Film, the camera holds on the full-frontal scene “for a solid 10 seconds,” which the site referred to as “one of the longest shots »

Interview: Steve Carell talks The Big Short

23 May 2016 10:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of the Academy Award-winning comedy-drama The Big Short released today in the UK on Blu-ray and DVD, Steve Carell (Anchorman 2, Cafe Society) has been talking about the film, working with Adam McKay and his career in both comedy and drama.

Could you explain the housing crisis in a sentence? No more than five words.

[laughs] In a sentence? What this movie is about is various groups of investors who saw a housing bubble and shorted the market. They essentially bet against the economy. The economy failing was their success and a handful of people saw it and made an awful lot of money because of it.

How much of the financial jargon did you have to learn?

I had to learn all of it. I didn’t learn it phonetically – I actually had to have some sort of understanding. Adam likes to improvise so that definitely was »

Jonah Hill’s Best Advice to Sister Beanie Feldstein on ‘Neighbors 2': ‘No Joke Is Precious’

17 May 2016 5:08 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

What’s in a name? Well, it depends who you ask. Beanie Feldstein, who makes her studio movie debut in this Friday’s “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” said her unique name — short for Elizabeth — helps her stand out. That’s exactly what she does as Chloe Grace Moretz‘s sorority sister in the sequel to Universal’s hit 2014 comedy. Feldstein is the younger sister of Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill, who first made a name for himself in early Seth Rogen comedies such as “The 40 Year-Old Virgin” and “Superbad.” Now it’s Feldstein who’s not only sharing the screen with Rogen, »

Jesse Peretz Directing ‘Juliet, Naked’ for Judd Apatow

6 May 2016 11:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Our Idiot Brother” director Jesse Peretz will helm the independent romance “Juliet, Naked,” based on the novel by Nick Hornby.

“Juliet, Naked” centers on Annie, the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan, and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered singer-songwriter Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan’s musical obsession.

Los Angeles Media Fund (Lamf) is financing the picture. Judd Apatow, and the team of Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa, Barry Mendel and Jeffrey Soros are producing. Simon Horsman is an executive producer.

The script was written by Tamara Jenkins (‘The Savages”) and Jim Taylor (“Sideways, “About Schmidt”) with revisions by Phil Alden Robinson and Evgenia Peretz.

CAA and UTA set up “Juliet, Naked” and are co-repping the rights.

Jesse Peretz directed nine episodes of Lena Dunham’s “Girls” and five eps of Zooey Deschanel’s “New Girl.”

“Keanu” gives Key and Peele a cinematic showcase

28 April 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

There seems to be a bit of a pipeline that exists between Comedy Central stars and cinematic success over the past decade or so. From seeing Steve Carell move from The Daily Show to a hit film in The 40 Year Old Virgin to Amy Schumer moving from Inside Amy Schumer to last year’s terrific movie Trainwreck, it’s a formula that works. Now, we have the duo of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele going from their hit show Key and Peele to the action comedy Keanu. While this isn’t nearly as strong a flick as those other examples, it’s still something pretty entertaining and well worth checking out when it opens on Friday. The film is both an action comedy as well as a bit of a satire. After a strange opening that only makes sense later, besides introducing the kitten, we see Rell Williams (Peele »

Judd Apatow Blasts Donald Trump as ‘The Psycho Girl on ‘The Bachelor’’

17 March 2016 8:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

During a stand-up comedy set at South by Southwest, director Judd Apatow delivered a blistering attack on Donald Trump, the Republican frontrunner for president.

“Is the Trump thing scaring you?” asked the director of such hits as “Trainwreck” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” before continuing on. “He’s kind of like the psycho girl on ‘The Bachelor’ that you don’t want to get kicked out too soon, because she might have sex with somebody in the ocean,” Apatow said. “But it’s time he doesn’t get the rose.” The sentiment was met with roars of laughter at the Paramount Theatre in Austin.

The Apatow comedy show came after the world premiere of the latest project he’s produced: “Pee-wee’s Big Holiday,” the Netflix original movie that arrives on the streaming service on March 18, just hours after its SXSW screening.

After the movie’s credits rolled, Apatow took the »

8 actors who went the extra mile for their movies

Freezing conditions. Dangerous stunts. Here are a few examples of actors who've suffered through some high-profile film roles...

When DiCaprio lifted his Best Actor trophy at this year's Oscars, we're surprised he didn't scream, "It's about damn time I won one of these. I slept in a goddamn hollowed-out horse for you people!"

Ah yes, the hollowed-out horse. But there was also the scene where DiCaprio had to eat a raw bison liver, or the sundry moments where the actor had to crawl in and out of freezing cold lakes and rivers. At a time when whizzy computer effects can make the impossible look possible, the cast and crew of The Revenant decided to take a decidedly analogue approach to making their period survival drama, with the long, arduous shoot taking place in ice-cold parts of Canada, the Us and Argentina.

Grim though the experience of making The Revenant was, »
