Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb Have Been Together For Way Longer Than You Knew
Sam Rockwell delivered an emotional and moving speech while accepting his best supporting actor Golden Globe award for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but before he took the stage, he got a sweet smooch from his date and long-term girlfriend, Leslie Bibb, that left him covered in lipstick. But exactly who is Leslie Bibb? She's an accomplished actor in her own right and has been performing for decades! Born in Bismarck, Nd, and raised in Nelson County, Va, the 43-year-old model-turned-actress got her start in 1990 when, at just 16, she won a nationwide model search on The Oprah Winfrey Show. After scoring small parts in films like The Skulls and shows like Home Improvement and Just Shoot Me!, Bibb landed a starring role as preppy Brooke McQueen on the short-lived WB show Popular, which lasted for just two seasons. Popular may not have lasted long, but it introduced

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award
Amy Adams can rise to any challenge: sparkle as a princess, brawl like a Boston barmaid, dance with Muppets, kiss Superman, earn five Oscar nominations and hold her own against Meryl Streep — twice. Still, on Nov. 10, the deeply private, craft-driven actress will face a new test when Tom Hanks, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Kristen Stewart, Chris Messina and Denis Villeneuve take the stage of the Beverly Hilton Hotel to praise her talents as the 31st recipient of the American Cinematheque Award.

Being lauded for her entire body of work is “a little overwhelming,” says Adams. “I tend to look at things piece by piece.”

As for the prospect of watching a montage of her entire filmography, Adams falls silent. “Yup,” she eventually says with the well-mannered equanimity of an actress who spent years doing dinner theater in Minnesota. Then she giggle-exhales.

Will Ferrell Finally Reveals the ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Storyline That Never Got Made

Will Ferrell Finally Reveals the ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Storyline That Never Got Made
Will Ferrell fans are no doubt shocked that a movie like “Daddy’s Home” is getting a sequel before such favorites as “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” and “Step Brothers.” The latter was an R-rated box office success in 2008 and gained near-legendary status by becoming an endlessly re-watchable favorite on cable television networks like FX. The film, which starred Ferrell opposite John C. Reilly as a pair of grown men still living with their parents, seemed like a logical choice for a sequel, and yet the stars and director Adam McKay have never moved forward with one.

Will Ferrell Reveals Elements Of The ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel Idea

In 2008, coming off back-to-back critical and box-office disappointments with “Semi-Pro” and “Blades of Glory,” Will Ferrell looked a little down and out. He returned to his writer/director buddy Adam McKay for “Step Brothers,” a film that reteamed him with his “Talladega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby” co-star John C. Reilly.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Talladega Nights

Will Ferrell needs backup actors to make a movie. There, I said it, that’s my opinion. If left to his own devices as a leading man he kind of flops a bit, but if he has costars that are genuinely funny then the movie tends to work out. In Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, the pace of the film is such that it just seems to jump from one point to another like a sand flea across the gray carpet of beach that they tend to frequent, but you can almost depend on Nascar fans to either love

A Double Dose of Noah Baumbach Comes to Netflix Next Month, Plus ‘Before Midnight,’ ‘Donnie Darko,’ and More
While October usually signals the arrival of all sorts of spooky, creepy, scary, and otherwise appropriately Halloween-themed films to both theaters and streaming services, this month’s batch of new titles on Netflix offers up a delightfully wide variety of choices that aren’t all tied to the year’s primary celebration of fear. Sure, those titles are there — from more mainstream chillers like “Cult of Chucky” and the new original “The Babysitter,” to more offbeat picks like the cannibal coming-of-age tale “Raw” and the seminal “Donnie Darko” — but this month’s incoming list has more than enough for movie fans who don’t want to shriek at their televisions.

Here’s What’s Coming to Netflix in October 2017

Netflix has unveiled its list of new titles that will be hitting the streaming service next month, and it’s a pretty robust assortment.

Sony Won’t Release Clean Versions of Films if Directors Disapprove

Updated: After coming under fire, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has revised its “clean version” initiative that allowed viewers to screen edited versions of two dozen of the studio’s films. Sony now says it won’t sell such movies if directors object.

“Our directors are of paramount importance to us and we want to respect those relationships to the utmost,” said Sphe president Man Jit Singh in a statement on Wednesday. “We believed we had obtained approvals from the filmmakers involved for use of their previously supervised television versions as a value added extra on sales of the full version. But if any of them are unhappy or have reconsidered, we will discontinue it for their films.” Related

Add Judd Apatow to the list of filmmakers and creators not too pumped about Sony Pictures’ newly announced “Clean Version” initiative. The filmmaker has issued a very colorful statement regarding the studio’s plan to offer edited — read: “clean” — versions of some of its titles on various streaming platforms. As Variety notes, these “Clean Versions” are the exact same ones used for broadcast TV or airline viewing, adding another weird wrinkle into the story.

Still, Apatow isn’t buying it, and he’s not alone.

The Directors Guild of America and Judd Apatow have objected to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment “clean version” initiative allowing viewers to screen edited versions of two dozen Sony films.

The studio announced on June 7 that it was making the broadcast TV or airline version of these 24 titles available when a consumer purchases a film in its original form on iTunes, Vudu, and FandangoNOW. The DGA said in a statement Tuesday that Sony is violating the guild’s master contract with the major studios.

“Directors have the right to edit their feature films for every non-theatrical platform, plain and simple,” the DGA said. “Taking a director’s edit for one platform, and then releasing it on another — without giving the director the opportunity to edit — violates our Agreement. Throughout the years, the DGA has achieved hard-fought creative rights gains protecting our members from such practices. As creators of their films, directors

A new home entertainment initiative at Sony Pictures offering "clean" versions of movies in hopes of appealing to a wider audience is already drawing the ire of some in Hollywood's creative community — namely, Seth Rogen.

The "Clean Version" project will make the broadcast TV or airline version of a title available when a consumer purchases a film in its original form on iTunes, Vudu and FandangoNOW. The initiative launches with 24 films, including Big Daddy, 50 First Dates, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, all of the Spider-Man movies and more serious fare such as Captain Phillips and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

"Holy s**t please don't do this to our movies. Thanks," Rogen tweeted Tuesday hours after Clean Version was announced.
