Paul Feig says his Ghostbusters reboot is inspired by The Walking Dead

25 February 2015 8:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already heard that Paul Feig has compared his Ghostbusters reboot to Night at the Museum, and today we’ve got a new comparison piece. And this one seems a bit more fitting of Ghostbusters than the Ben Stiller vehicle.

While on The Talking Dead on AMC, the Bridesmaids director talked about what inspirations he was taking for his all-female vision of Ghostbusters.

“I will say, I was very inspired by [The Walking Dead],” Feig said. “What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run. And that’s something, an element I want to bring to this Ghostbusters reboot is having to get through these various obstacles that are supernatural and all that. I really feed off of The Walking Dead.”

Composer Alan Silvestri Being Feted at World Soundtrack Awards

25 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Film composer Alan Silvestri — best known for his work with director Robert Zemeckis on such films as “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and “Forrest Gump” and the “Back to the Future” trilogy — will be the central honoree at the 15th Annual World Soundtrack Awards, which will close the 42nd edition of Film Fest Gent on Oct. 24 in Belgium.

As is custom, the work of Silvestri — following in the footsteps of previous Wsa honorees Angelo Badalamenti, John Barry and Cliff Martinez — will be performed by the Brussels Philharmonic, conducted by Dirk Brossé.

Silvestri first teamed with Zemeckis on their breakthrough feature, “Romancing the Stone” (1984) and subsequently collaborated on 10 additional releases, including “Death Becomes Her” (1992), “Cast Away” (2000) and “The Polar Express” (2004).

The prolific and rangy composer’s credits also include the rom-coms “Father of the Bride” (1991), “What Women Want” (2000) and “Maid in Manhattan” (2002); action blockbusters “Predator” (1987) and “The Avengers” (2012); neo-westerns “Young Guns 2” (1990) and »

Neil Patrick Harris's 7 Best Moments From the 2015 Oscars

23 February 2015 12:09 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, this year's Oscars was certainly full of surprises and one of the biggest was just how uneven Neil Patrick Harris's gig as emcee went. At first it seemed like the actor, who starred in last year's Oscar-nominated box office smash "Gone Girl," would translate his boisterous, Broadway-honed song-and-dance routine into one of the more memorable hosting gigs of recent memory (in a good way). But the high highs also complemented by some incredibly low lows (like the overlong gag about his predictions, which culminated in a reveal that had us asking, Oh he likes magic right?) Still, Nph did more bad than good last night - and here are our seven favorite moments from the show.

1. Acknowledging the Race Discrepancy Right Away

Despite a number of films that tackled racially diverse issues (and just as many ace performances by nonwhite actors), this year's Oscars was one of the »

Oscars 2015: Neil Patrick Harris Jokes About David Oyelowo's Snub: 'Now You Like Him!'

22 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

British accents make everything sound better - even a burn. That was the theory tested by Oscars host Neil Patrick Harris with an assist from Selma star David Oyelowo. "We've got some fine nominees from the U.K. with us tonight. David Oyelowo, so powerful as Dr. Martin Luther King," said Harris to applause from the crowd. "Oh, sure, now you like him," Harris quipped when the room quieted. The British star was, of course, snubbed from the Best Actor category this year, setting off a debate about race and the Academy Awards. Following some uncomfortable laughs, Nph continued with the joke. »

Pawscars honour top animal actors, including prolific primate

18 February 2015 8:05 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Honouring actors brings out red carpets, couture and - sometimes - creatures.

A monkey who's starred in 25 movies over two decades was top dog at the sixth annual Pawscars, the animal version of the Oscars. Waving a statue over her head in triumph, a beaming Crystal accepts the "lifetime diva achievement award" looking every bit the part in a pink, floor-length gown and necklace during the show streaming online Wednesday.

The Capuchin monkey, who played a Ben Stiller-slapping, key-stealing primate in Night at the Museum and a drug-dealing monkey in Hangover Part II, is "the Angelina Jolie of animal stars," said "NCIS" actress Pauley Perrette, who is hosting the show with teen actor Lou Wegner.

Holding her tiny hand, Perrette asks the prolific primate: "So Crystal, you have starred with some of the top leading men of all times - Bradley Cooper, Ben Stiller, Matt Damon, Robin Williams - did you have a favourite? »

Harald Zwart Will Direct Blumhouse Family Horror

18 February 2015 6:49 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Chris Pizzello/AP

There are so many films in development at Blumhouse that it’s hard to keep track of them all. One will stand apart from the pack, however, as it’s being specifically targeted at families. This is a significant departure for the production company behind the Paranormal Activity, Purge, Sinister and Insidious series.

The only information THR have on the film so far is that Robert Ben Garant is writing and Harald Zwart is directing. They have much more kid-friendly experience than Jason Blum and co., thanks to the Night at the Museum films, Cody Banks and the Karate Kid remake.

Garant’s actually been busy at Blumhouse of late, also working on some proper adult-targeted horror fare. I’m not at all surprised; he’s also the author of Writing Movies for Fun and Profit with his co-writer Thomas Lennon and they weren’t joking about the profit part. »

Planes: Fire & Rescue Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 2:36 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Planes: Fire & Rescue, much like the Cars sequel, spins us into an entirely new world, and though the Cars franchise sequels haven’t been quite the blockbusters Pixar might have hoped for, this broader sequel theory has made them both far better films than simpler “add-on” efforts might have managed.

Dusty finds himself out of the racing game, and quickly joins with a crew of rescue vehicles who keep an eye on a vast forest in order to contain fires. Naturally, this isn’t something that sounds like a great time to Dusty at first, but he learns that there’s a lot more to life than being in the spotlight.

This all kicks off because Dusty continually pushes himself too far, damaging a part that can’t be replaced. In a fairly obvious maneuver, he ends up crashing, and causing a fire. This leads to the airport being shut down, »

Theater Review: At Encores!, Lady, Be Good!

5 February 2015 1:28 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sometimes — and I mean this in a good way — the Encores! series at City Center seems like the musical equivalent of A Night at the Museum, making the dinosaurs dance. That’s certainly the case with its delightful 22nd-season opener, Lady, Be Good!, the 1924 comedy that featured George and Ira Gershwin’s debut score on Broadway. (Working alone or as a team, the brothers had contributed individual songs to shows since 1918.) True, the bones of Lady, Be Good! are so creaky, they must be held up with strings, but the mounting, and the superb restoration where needed, let you see something fascinating that would hardly be visible otherwise: how the American musical grew into itself.Were it not for that, it’s hard to argue that a relic like Lady, Be Good! would be worth the enormous effort Encores! put into it, including a nearly complete new orchestration and the »

It looks like Roger Hargreaves’ classic children’s book series Mr Men and Little Miss are heading to the big screen, with Fox Animation snapping up the rights to the beloved characters for an animated feature film which will be produced by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum).

“I loved reading these books as a kid, and now I love reading them to my own kids,” said Janet Hsu, head of rights holders Sanrio, Inc. “Their humour, wit and uniquely specific tone make this a truly classic series. I can’t wait to help shepherd them to the big screen.”

Launching in 1971, the Mr Men and Little Miss series spanned 85 characters, selling over 120 million copies around the world, and also spawned a BBC cartoon series that ran between 1974 and 1985.

Christine Taylor Confirms ‘Zoolander 2′ Return

28 January 2015 11:48 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ben Stiller’s Night At The Museum franchise may have done a hat-trick of December box-office blockbuster business, with Christmas Day releases almost guaranteeing that rare occurrence of when takings go up in teh second week, but the sequel we’ve all been waiting for is Zoolander 2. It’s gradually gained some momentum, with Justin Theroux, who played the evil DJ in the original, on board to direct taking over the role from Stiller himself. Penelope Cruz has also signed for a role, but now we can also confirm the return of Christine Taylor as Matilda Jeffries.

Speaking with EW, Taylor gave these exciting little tit-bits:

I can tell you that I’m involved, but that’s all I can say. I can tell you it’s happening, but I can’t tell you where Matilda’s at and where their relationship is at. It’s all top secret! »

We must apologize for what turned out being a rather delirious episode. Laremy traveled to Washington D.C. before today's episode and I had just gotten back from a late night movie and neither one of us was operating at full capacity. That said, we did get in some conversation about the Screen Actors Guild Awards, we discussed the new DVD and Blu-ray releases, played some games and Laremy giggled through pretty much the entire episode.
