13 Unexplained Beyonce Mysteries of 2014

16 December 2014 4:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Beyoncé is a mystery wrapped in a question mark wrapped in a bedazzled leotard and standing in front of a giant fan that perfectly blows her perfect hair perfectly just so. The year may be ending, but we have some questions for Bey. Like...

Splash News

1. What actually caused Solange and Jay Z’s elevator brawl? Hands down, the biggest Wtf moment of the year was when surveillance footage surfaced showing Solange laying the smack down on Jay in an elevator after the Met Gala. But why? The only explanation we got was from Bey on her “Flawless” remix: “Of course sometimes s--t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”

2. Why did Solange delete all the pictures of Beyoncé off her Instagram? After the Met Gala, Solange deleted all but one picture of her sister from her Instagram. She eventually uploaded more, but was she mad at B? Did they get »

‘Selma’ Cast, Director Wear ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirts at N.Y. Premiere

14 December 2014 11:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Parties and protests don’t typically overlap, but the “Selma” cast made an exception and a statement on Sunday night following the film’s Manhattan premiere. At one point during the otherwise splashy festivities, director Ava DuVernay took to the steps of the New York Public Library with actors David Oyelowo, E. Roger Mitchell, Wendell Pierce, Omar DorseyJohn Lavelle, Stephan James, Kent Faulcon, Lorraine Toussaint, Andre Holland, Tessa Thompson and Colman Domingo, donning “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts over their partywear and raising their arms in the “don’t shoot” pose.

It was not just an unusually sobering photo op, but also a direct acknowledgment of the eerie timing of Paramount’s civil rights drama, with its scenes of organized protest and its urgent plea for justice and reform. The premiere was held the same weekend that more than 25,000 men and women marched through Manhattan, in the largest protest »

Broadway Stunner: $8M ‘Side Show’ Reboot Will Shutter January 4

12 December 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Second Update, 7:29 a.m. with link to Today show appearance.

Update, 5:25 a.m. with more information below:

The musical that poignantly poses the question “Who will love me as I am?” got its answer last night: Very few.

Tough business.

Side Show, the $8 million reboot of  a 1997 flop about freak-show legends Daisy and Violet Hilton, helmed in his Broadway debut by Dreamgirls and Gods And Monsters director Bill Condon, will fold after the Sunday, January 4 matinee, the producers announced this morning. The original production also closed on January 4 — 1998, after 91 performances, a record the new version will not match. After successful tryouts at the La Jolla Playhouse in California and the Kennedy Center last summer, the heavily revised show opened November 16 at the Jujamcyn-owned St. James Theatre to several glowing reviews, including a rave from the New York Times’ Charles Isherwood:

Get on Up: Sharen Davis Shares Costume Design Sketches

9 December 2014 4:26 AM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

As Get on Up, director Tate Taylor’s look at the life of singing legend James Brown, hits UK screens we have some fantastic sketches to share of the film’s costuming.

Costume designer for Get on Up is the one and only Sharen Davis, who previously worked with Taylor on The Help, although you may know her better for Devil in a Blue Dress, Dreamgirls, Ray and Django Unchained. Davis is absurdly talented and every single project she undertakes should be greeted with cheers by any costume fan. Get on Up with its collective of lowly, stage and civvie ensembles worn by Chadwick Boseman as adult James Joseph Brown (60+changes) is no exception.

Moreover, not only are Clothes on Film lucky enough to be publishing these sketches, we also have some exclusive snippets from Sharen Davis on her approach to the film. We would say ‘enjoy’, but that should »

Ava DuVernay Could Make Oscar History With a Best Director Nom

1 December 2014 6:50 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Last year’s Oscar ceremony made history when director Steve McQueen became the first black filmmaker to win for best picture with 12 Years a Slave and Alfonso Cuaron became the first Latin American to win for best director with Gravity. This year’s ceremony could make history as well: Ava DuVernay could become the first black female to be nominated for best director for Selma, and if Angelina Jolie lands a nomination for Unbroken, it will be the first time two women are nominated in the same year.

In 2012, DuVernay became the first black woman to win for best director at the Sundance Film Festival with Middle of Nowhere.

Lee & Low Books found that 99 percent of best director winners are male and 99 percent of best actress winners are white (93 percent of best actor winners are also white).

18 November 2014 2:34 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Step right up and see the greatest wonders of the world! Like a man with iron claws growing out of his hands! Or a multi-talented Australian actor who can sing, dance and kick your ass!

Barnum in a new, original musical directed by commercial director Michael Gracey and written by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls). Jackman will star as the man who invented the three-ring circus, documenting Barnum’s rise in show business.

Jackman's "Showman" Films Next Summer

18 November 2014 5:08 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

20th Century Fox is reportedly eyeing a Summer 2015 start of production date for the original musical "The Greatest Showman On Earth" starring Hugh Jackman.

Deadline reports that the studio is going through the budgeting process and is expected to start making deals with talent ahead of a shoot in New York next year.

Jackman stars as master showman Pt Barnum in the project which is said to be the first original, fully-fledged, live-action movie musical (with original songs) made by a studio since 1992 (Moulin Rouge, Once, Inside Llewyn Davis, The Muppets, Enchanted, etc. apparently don't count). The story deals with Barnum's invention of show business and ultimately the three-ring circus.

Michael Gracie is helming the project, while the likes of Jonathan Tropper and Bill Condon have worked on the script. Condon's "Dreamgirls" producer Laurence Mark is also onboard to produce this.

Jackman is currently drawing rave reviews for his performance »

Hugh Jackman's P.T. Barnum Musical Finally Shooting Next Summer

17 November 2014 3:40 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been over five years since we've heard anything on the development of the musical The Greatest Showman on Earth, the story of the famous three-ring circus creator P.T. Barnum. Last we heard, Hugh Jackman was slated to star in the film, and now Deadline reports the project is finally coming together with a plan to start shooting next summer in New York. This will be the first live-action, original big screen studio musical since The Goonies (though some argue you could count Moulin Rouge), and the most recent script comes from Bill Condon, writer and director of Dreamgirls. But who is directing? Michael Gracie, known for commercials full of dancing and a giant flash mob put together by Oprah Winfrey and the Black Eyed Peas (watch it here), will make his feature directorial debut on the film that has original songs by Justin Paul & Benz Pasek (of the Tony-nominated »

Eddie Murphy & 'Driving Miss Daisy' Director 'Cook' Up New Drama

20 October 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Fans will see Eddie Murphy get back into Axel Foley mode soon enough with Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the way. Plus, there's still that Twins sequel in the works that will team him up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in the cleverly titled Triplets. But before he makes a couple more comedies, he's going to take some time to get into drama briefly. In what will be his first non-animated, non-comedy role since the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, Empire reports that Murphy is slated to star in Cook, a new project from Driving Miss Daisy director Bruce Beresford, that originally had Samuel L. Jackson on board to star. The film would see Murphy playing a man hired by a dying patriarch to help take care of his girlfriend and daughter by cooking them meals and whatnot after he passes away. The script comes from "Californication" writer Susan McMartin with 300 and »

Eddie Murphy Mixes Things Up And Joins Bruce Beresford’s New Drama, The Cook

20 October 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

They say that variety is the spice of life, which is a phrase that can certainly be applied to one Eddie Murphy. Having performed as a stand-up comic, singer, director and of course, actor, the 53-year old star has certainly dabbled in a range of different mediums. Plus, with the likes of Triplets — the quasi-sequel to 1988’s Twins — and Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the horizon, it looks as though Murphy is gradually returning to his comedic roots.

Before his appearance in those aforementioned continuations, the comic-slash-actor is set to star in something a little more serious: Bruce Beresford’s morbid drama, The Cook. Telling the tale of who a dying man who hires Murphy’s titular chef, the film will see Murphy providing meals to his girlfriend and daughter.

Speaking to Empire, the actor praised the script and claimed that The Cook is very much a character-driven project.

A Dirty Shame: Woodruff’s Erotic Fiction Adaptation Flatlines

Demurely arriving before the anticipated film version of E.L. James’ erotic fiction nonsense Fifty Shades of Grey comes the first adaptation of Zane’s 2001 novel, Addicted. Having had well over a decade to build her fan base, it’s surprising that it has taken so long for such a reality to transpire, though marketing for the title has been curiously slim considering Bille Woodruff is at the helm. Distributed by Lionsgate boutique division Codeblack, the film wasn’t screened for critics, which isn’t generally a vote of confidence. While those who know and appreciate Zane’s work, including a fan base that would appear to be mostly made up of heterosexual black women, will be curious to experience Woodruff’s film version, the only point it proves is that silliness knows no racial bounds.
