Perhaps the only news of note this week is that in a move echoing what they did with Breaking Bad, Netflix has swooped in and gained rights to the TV series of From Dusk Til Dawn made in the states for Robert Rodriguez’s new El Rey network cable channel. Netflix will stream the episodes the day after they air in the states every week, curiously they are still billing this as ‘A Netflix Original’ when this isn’t the case necessarily. I have no idea as to the quality of this, the film From Dusk Til Dawn was one of my favourites when I was a teenager but how you drag that out into a ten part TV show I don’t know, let alone a possible second series. I watched the trailer and it looks solid and well-made as opposed to a cheap cash in and features Don Johnson »

Former child actor Jason Bateman had a surge in his career ten years ago when he played the lead in the television comedy "Arrested Development" (and some serious scene stealing in comedies like Dodgeball ), but things have just steamrolled for him since then as his transition to movies led to a number of huge hits including Jason Reitman's Juno , Hancock , Couples Retreat and last year's Identity Thief . Now, Bateman is making his feature film directorial debut with Bad Words , in which he plays Guy Trilby, a surly 40-year-old who finds a loophole in spelling bee bylaws to make his way through the system to the Golden Quill National Spelling Bee where he encounters a young competitor named Chaitanya (Rohan Chand), who seems to be an annoying distraction from »

J.K. Simmons can be a warm paternal presence, a comedic force, a terrifying human monster, or a wry closing-pitcher fifth wheel to the nominal protagonists. (See, respectively: the dad in Juno, J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man trilogy, Schillinger on Oz, his recurring role as a psychiatrist in the Law & Orderverse.) To the extent that NBC’s new comedy Growing Up Fisher works at all, it works because of Simmons. The show is based on the actual life story of creator DJ Nash, and it’s narrated by an older version of his onscreen surrogate Henry (Eli Baker) — although it »

In a column for The Guardian, Jane Czyzselska celebrated Ellen Page’s coming out, trumpeting three cheers for her public disclosure and cited Sir Patrick Stewart as an example of a gay actor who praised the “Juno” star for her bravery — one problem, the Star Trek actor isn’t gay. Oops! ‘”Some gay people, such as Sir Patrick Stewart, think Page’s coming out speech is newsworthy because a high-profile and surprisingly politically aware young actress has decided not to play by the rules that so many closeted Hollywood actors are advised to follow if they are to enjoy mainstream success, »

Ghost With The Most Rumors about a sequel to Tim Burton's 1988 comedy classic Beetlejuice have been roaming the internet like a lost soul in a haunted house for more than a decade, but it now appears that a sequel might have some (after)life after all. In a recent interview with MTV, the title star of the original, Michael Keaton, revealed that he would be interested in reprising the role in a sequel and that he has even e-mailed Burton "a couple of times" and "talked to the writer" about Beetlejuice 2.
I always said that's the one thing I'd like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another.
Now it looks like [Burton] is involved. And without giving too much away we've talked to each other, and e-mailed each other, and if he's in, it's going »

Gay people don't want special treatment but the cruel reaction to the news by some says a lot about our cultural mindset
Hurrah for Ellen Page, who came out publicly in Las Vegas on Friday. Speaking at the Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive conference for Lgbt counsellors, the star of Juno and X-Men made a brave decision to be open in the hope that doing so would make a difference to those who are tired of "lying by omission", as she put it.
The announcement caused a frenzy on news and social media sites around the world. By Saturday morning, the Human Rights Campaign site, which was hosting her eight-minute speech, had crashed its server and Ellen Page was trending on Twitter, a fair indication then that the young Canadian's decision to come out is newsworthy.
It's news and yet it shouldn't be news.

While addressing the Human Rights Campaign’s inaugural conference in Las Vegas for a group of nearly 600 educators and counselors who work with Lgbtq youth, Ellen Page opened her speech by coming out as a gay woman. In an emotional eight minutes, the Juno actress describes the trouble with being yourself in a Hollywood that “places crushing standards on all of us.” She admitted these “standards of beauty. Of a good life. Of success,” have affected her, but now wants to stop “hiding and...lying by omission.” We especially love the part when she answers a fashion critic's question: “Why does [this] petite beauty insist upon dressing like a massive man?” and can’t wait to see what projects out and proud Page picks up next. »
