‘Edge of Seventeen’ Named as Centerpiece Selection at Austin Film Festival

27 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Austin Film Festival and Screenwriters Conference has announced that the Stx coming of age-comedy “Edge of Seventeen” will screen as the centerpiece selection on Oct. 17.

James L. Brooks will attend the screening of the pic, on which he is a producer.

Brooks, whose previous producing credits include “Jerry Maguire” and “The Simpsons Movie,” will present the film and take part in a Q&A afterwards.

“Edge of Seventeen” centers around lonely high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) who forms an unlikely friendship with awkward admirer Erwin Kim (Hayden Szeto). The film also stars Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s history teacher.

Writer-director Ben Younger will also be present in Austin for a screening of his film “Bleed for This,” which stars Miles Teller as struggling boxer Vinny Paz and Aaron Eckhart as his coach. The film is based on the story of Paz, who went on to become world champion. »

Rebellious teens, trouble making pranksters – the kind that we try our very hardest to keep our own children away from, yet we love to watch their antics on our screens!

In Taika Waititi’s latest film, we follow a journey of a defiant young city boy, who finds himself on the run in the wild New Zealand bush, with his cantankerous foster uncle.

In celebration of the release of the hilarious Hunt For The Wilderpeople in UK cinemas September 16th, we take a look at some of our favourite on-screen tearaways.

Finding Dory surfaces atop UK box office as Jason Bourne spies second

2 August 2016 4:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Pixar’s sequel enjoyed a heady start to the school holiday season, as Spielberg’s Bfg continues to stand tall and indie hits are few and far between

With Finding Dory now the most successful animated movie of all time at the Us box-office ($469m so far), the pressure was on the UK division of Disney – which has always performed well with Pixar movies – to come up with a similar result. And the Finding Nemo sequel has certainly gotten off to a flying start, with debut weekend takings of £8.12m. That’s the second biggest three-day opening for a Disney or Pixar animated film, behind only Toy Story 3, which began in July 2010 with £11.49m, plus previews of £9.69m. In terms of the whole animation sector, including companies such as DreamWorks Animation and Illumination Entertainment, Finding Dory has delivered the seventh-biggest three-day opening, behind Minions, Toy Story 3, Shrek 2, »

Last week, Fox brought a whopping 13 shows to San Diego Comic-Con, one of which was the network's longest-running show, The Simpsons. It is going into its 28th season this fall. Several of the show's producers and voice cast members greeted fans in San Diego to discuss this upcoming season, but they also addressed the possibility of a sequel to 2007's The Simpsons Movie. As it turns out, according to showrunner Al Jean, a movie still very well may happen.

Fox released a highlights video on YouTube just a few days after the panel, which features a fan asking whether or not another Simpsons Movie will happen. Way back in 2009, series creator Matt Groening didn't sound too optimistic about the possibility of The Simpsons Movie 2, bemoaning the fact that it took four years to make, instead of the two years they were planning. When asked about a new movie at this year's Sdcc panel, »

Homer Simpson appears live tonight on The Simpsons

15 May 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

According to longtime Simpsons executive producer Al Jean, we almost saw a live appearance by Homer Simpson way back in 2007, as a promotion for The Simpsons Movie. But, “what we saw the time didn’t seem to have a smooth enough animation so we didn’t use it,” Jean told reporters on a conference call last week. “Now, it’s advanced to the point where we think we can do three minutes of the show.” Jean is referring to tonight’s episode of The Simpsons, called “Simprovised,” which will indeed have three minutes of live Homer antics.
