‘The Intern’ Director Nancy Meyers Honored by American Cinema Editors

15 December 2015 1:35 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Intern” director Nancy Meyers has been selected by the American Cinema Editors board as its Ace Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year Award.

Longtime collaborator Steve Martin will present the award at the 66th annual Ace Eddie Awards on Jan. 29 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Nancy Meyers has been delighting and moving audiences around the world with deeply human, relatable stories for over three decades,” the Ace Board of Directors said. “As a writer and director, she’s brought us some of the most beloved films in recent memory, and pioneered the art of telling stories with strong female characters at their center. From ‘Private Benjamin’ to her most recent film ‘The Intern,’ Nancy is a trailblazing filmmaker and we’re thrilled to celebrate her body of work thus far.”

Past Golden Eddie honorees including Frank Marshall, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Norman Jewison, Alexander Payne, James Cameron, Clint Eastwood, »

A Reminder That The Holiday Contains One of the Most Heartbreaking Scenes in Movie History

9 December 2015 11:35 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Holiday isn't necessarily lauded as a Christmas classic due to the fact most people watch it home alone on Friday night when it airs on on TBS, Ben and Jerry's pint in hand. Despite this, the romantic comedy has really held up over the past decade, and given the movie's nine-year anniversary this week, it's time to give ageless actress Kate Winslet's flawless performance as Iris its due. As a romantically challenged British woman desperately searching for a distraction from her doomed relationship, there are plenty of gut-wrenching moments. However, none of them compare to the scene when she delivers an epic speech about heartbreak that perfectly encapsulates how it feels to break up with someone (i.e. torture and death). Watch the speech above if you have a big box of tissues handy, and make sure you check out the 17 essential holiday movies! »

On this day in pop culture history: The reimagined ‘Battlestar Galactica’ premiered

8 December 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Holy frak! 12 years ago today, audiences first saw one of the greatest (arguably the greatest) science fiction TV shows. It was on December 8, 2003 that the reimagined “Battlestar Galactica” launched with a mini-series on Sci-Fi Channel. Adapted from the campy 1978 “Battlestar,” the 21st century update to the series delivered a starkly different in tone: It’s dark, layered, often bleak, and socially resonant. Like all good sci-fi should, the series had real-world relevance, as it mirrored and reflected upon our post-9/11 society. The series won a Peabody Award in 2005 with praise for the writers' ability to craft “plotlines that are deeply personal and relatable, while never compromising their affinity and passion for science fiction.” Fans latched onto the military drama of the series, the special effects-driven battle sequences, the mystery and debate of “who’s a Cylon?”, utterly unique and moving music by Bear McCreary, and, of course, beloved, flawed, relatable characters like Roslin and Adama, »

For some people "holiday" may suggest Christmas, but nobody puts Thanksgiving in the corner. The CW just released its list of upcoming holiday specials and they were wise enough to include one of the great T-Day comedy classics, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles," as well as more wintry fare, including "Kung Fu Panda Holiday" and "Merry Madagascar."

Here's The CW holiday schedule:

Geena Davis Symposium: UK stats healthier than Us

9 October 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The UK industry has something to celebrate about women in film - at least compared to more dismal stats in the Us.

Across 11 top territories in the global film industry, women make up an average of 7% of directors, 19.7% of writers and 22% of producers.

But in UK independent film, women number 27.3% of directors, while in the Us last year, only two women directed films in the top 100.

Among writers, the UK has 58.8% female screenwriters, compared to 11.8% in the Us.

In UK independent films, 37.9% of characters seen on screen are female, but that drops to 23.6% when the UK collaborates with the Us.

Those were some of the stats presented by Madeline Di Nonno, CEO of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender In Media as part of the Institute’s Symposium at BFI Southbank yesterday (Oct 8), presented with the BFI and Wftv.

The Intern movie review: so much nice, so little help

2 October 2015 2:48 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A nice movie about real problems people face in real life, and it deals with them in as sidelong a way as it possibly can, avoiding all strong emotion. I’m “biast” (pro): love De Niro (mostly)

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Nancy Meyers

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s a long list of ways in which movies can be inoffensive, and The Intern ticks them all off. This is a nice movie about real problems people face in real life, and it deals with them in as sidelong a way as it possibly can, avoiding all strong emotion even when it comes to matters that touch at our innermost selves, such as the betrayal of infidelity and the infuriation of not being taken seriously no matter how smart or successful you are simply because of ingrained bigotry.

Nancy Meyers on the Importance of Confidence and Why She's a Writer At Heart

28 September 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More:Nick Hornby Kicks Off BAFTA and BFI Screenwriter's Lecture Series With Honest Discussion About His Place in Hollywood As part of the BAFTA & BFI Screenwriters' Lecture Series, Nancy Meyers followed Nicky Horby and Andrew Bovell to offer audience members an inside look at her life's work and what it means to her to be a writer first. Meyers opened her talk claiming that her passport notes her profession as "writer," therefore, that is her true calling. Cheering up cinemas since the early 1980s, Meyers is responsible for the hit films "Father of the Bride," "The Parent Trap," "What Women Want," "Something's Gotta Give," "The Holiday," "It's Complicated" and the newly released "The Intern." Safe to say that Meyers knows how to flip a script into a film, and moreover, how to keep theaters packed.  Even though Meyers has such an extensive resume in the industry, she doesn't see herself. »

Box Office: ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Breaks September Record With $47.5 Million Debut

27 September 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hotel Transylvania 2” easily topped the weekend box office, sinking its teeth into an impressive $47.5 million, and providing a big win for star Adam Sandler and Sony Pictures, the studio behind the animated franchise.

Both had endured rough patches at ticket booths of late. Sandler, once among the most consistently commercial leading men in Hollywood, has suffered a series of flops like “Blended,” “That’s My Boy” and “Jack and Jill” that have inspired questions about his bankability. And Sony, which had its inner workings laid bare in last year’s hack attack by North Korea, was subjected to a summer that saw films like “Aloha” and Sandler’s video game comedy “Pixels” rejected by audiences. It has been on the upswing in recent weeks, fielding modest hits like “War Room” and “The Perfect Guy,” but this is the studio’s biggest opening since “22 Jump Street” debuted to $57 million in »

Forecast: 'Transylvania', 'Intern' & 'Inferno' Highlight Stacked Weekend

24 September 2015 1:16 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's a stacked weekend with some notable holdovers and a pair of strong-performing limited releases from last weekend set to expand. Add to that a trio of newcomers including the latest from Nancy Meyers, an animated sequel and the curious decision from Jason Blum's newly formed Bh Tilt to bring the long-delayed cannibal horror feature The Green Inferno to over 1,500 theaters. Let's peel this onion one layer at a time... Likely to easily top the box office is Hotel Transylvania 2, the animated sequel featuring the voice of Adam Sandler as Dracula and recent Emmy host Andy Samberg, along with a fleet of additional, top tier voice talents. The first film hit theaters on the same weekend three years ago, opening with $42.5 million from 3,349 theaters, and Sony has added 404 theaters to that 2012 number in hopes of making sure they top the first feature. In the sequel's favor, the original had strong legs, »

Box Office: ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Overshadowing ‘The Intern’

23 September 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hotel Transylvania 2” will take a bite out of the box office this weekend, as “The Intern” looks to recapture the sparkle of past Nancy Meyers hits like “Something’s Gotta Give” and “It’s Complicated.”

Then there’s “Everest,” the high-altitude adventure that got off to a muscular start in a limited Imax and premium format run last weekend. It expands to 3,004 theaters on Friday. The trio of high profile releases join holdovers like “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Black Mass” in powering what is shaping up to be a healthy September for ticket sales. The past three weekends have seen overall receipts top the year-ago period, and overall revenues are up 20% from last year. The streak could continue if the combination of the “Hotel Transylvania” followup, Meyers’ latest comedy, and the mountaineering drama prove to be a bigger draw than Denzel Washington’s “The Equalizer” and “The »

Review: Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro are adorable in low-stakes 'The Intern'

21 September 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nancy Meyers is an easy target for cynical critics, and she's certainly responsible for her fair share of glossy nonsense. She's also the most financially successful female filmmaker of all time, and as big a brand as any male filmmaker working right now. The only difference between her and, say, Michael Bay is which altar they worship at. Michael Bay makes movies that are so artificial, so technically-driven but hysterically soulless that it's like Skynet got addicted to Internet porn and Jerry Bruckheimer movies, while Nancy Meyers' voice is more like what would happen if Pottery Barn became sentient. I think Meyers is genuinely trying to expand the definition of what a studio comedy is, though. I think she's someone who has found her own niche, and just like Judd Apatow, she tells stories about characters who live the way she lives, which is to say very, very well. »

Jack Black's 17 Best Movie Roles

27 August 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With over 40 films under his belt, Jack Black has quite the resume.

He made his film debut as a political groupie in 1992's "Bob Roberts." He was also Sean Penn's brother in "Dead Man Walking," the head of "The Nasties" in "The Neverending Story III," and target practice for Bruce Willis in "The Jackal."

But none of those roles made a mark: It's his wild child rock persona we loved in "School of Rock" and "High Fidelity," not to mention his teddy-bear soft side in "The Holiday" and the movies that prove he can more than hold his own as a dramatic actor. (Insert off-color joke here.)

In honor of Black's birthday, raise your goblet of rock to toast his 17 best movie roles. »

Edward Burns Explains How Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and 'Game of Thrones' Influenced His (Great) First TV Series, 'Public Morals'

21 August 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the last decade or so, you probably know Edward Burns as one of two people: The first is that charming New Yorkah who pops up in romantic comedies like "The Holiday," "27 Dresses," "Friends With Kids" and even "Will & Grace." He's snagged a few roles as cops in a couple of studio flicks, as well, but he's a tried and true "Prince Charming"-type for anyone who loves a thick Queens accent. That person, though, is Edward Burns, Studio Actor. Far more interesting to the indie community and film fans at large is Edward Burns, Writer, Actor, Producer and Director. Since his debut film, "The Brothers McMullen," took home the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995, Burns hasn't stopped writing — and directing, and producing, and acting and more. He's been pumping out character-driven indie films for two decades now, and helping push VOD distribution into the mainstream along the way. »

Shannyn Sossamon: My career didn't just slow down, it 'came to a total stop'

20 August 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Shannyn Sossamon became something of an "It Girl" in the early noughties with roles in films including "A Knight's Tale," "40 Days and 40 Nights," the Bret Easton Ellis adaptation "Rules of Attraction" and "The Order" (her second and final film with the late Heath Ledger, whom she called "a very special spirit" but was otherwise reticent to talk about in a short-form interview), but after giving birth to her son Audio in 2003 she all but disappeared from the spotlight. Since then, Sossamon has popped up in everything from well-received indies ("Wristcutters: A Love Story") to big, star-studded Hollywood com-coms ("The Holiday") to TV series (the cult single-season CBS vampire drama "Moonlight"), though recently her resume is heavy on so-called "genre" work, from the 2008 J-horror remake "One Missed Call" to the 2011 post-apocalyptic thriller "The Day" to this year's buzzy summer series "Wayward Pines" and now "Sinister 2," the sequel to the sleeper »

Shannyn Sossamon Recalls "Reckless" 2000s Days, Reveals Freaky "Sinister 2" Set Accident

19 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

When Shannyn Sossamon first hit the scene in the early 2000s, she was one of the Hollywood It Girls. With roles alongside some of the hottest heartthrobs around -- including Heath Ledger, Josh Hartnett and James Van Der Beek -- she quickly made a name for herself in films like "A Knight's Tale," "40 Days and 40 Nights" and "The Rules of Attraction." Now 36 and a mother to two children -- Audio Science, 12, and Clayton, 3 -- those days are a bit blurry to the actress. "I don’t remember anything," she tells toofab's Brian Particelli when asked what it was like to gain notoriety during such a wild time in Hollywood. "I always say that I wasn’t really ready when I started to do movies and so I learned as I’ve been going. It was fun, but I was definitely a little reckless being when I was younger, so I don’t remember much! »

Squirrels Unite: The Forgotten Genius of Kendrew Lascelles

11 August 2015 7:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

L.A. is a strange town. Where have I heard that statement before? It is unique in the

world – grown from the Hollywood seed, it has developed its own culture . . . and is,

in parts, quite dysfunctional.

A culture of creative paranoia. Did you know that an agent will not talk to anyone

unless he or she already knows that person, or there is a personal introduction.

Sound anything like Pride and Prejudice?

“Do I know you Miss Elizabeth?”

“We have yet to be introduced, Mr. Darcy.”

No one will read anything – forget a script - even an email – without a

recommendation from a trusted colleague. I pity the folk at 2000 Avenue of the Stars

when the unknown fireman tries to evacuate the building in a crisis.

“I’m sorry sir, the people on the 12th floor refuse to accept that you are a real

person. Do you have an appointment? »
