Robin Williams's Widow Is 'Surprisingly Resilient,' Says Friend

24 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well-loved and well-ridden, the bicycle still had mud clinging to the tires. From the handlebars hung a red Night at the Museum cap, signed by its owner. At Saturday night's Hotbed Benefit for 10,000 Degrees, a scholarship program for underprivileged college students, Robin Williams's presence was felt everywhere - but especially around the custom-made Pegoretti bicycle donated by the late entertainer for the fundraiser. "I can see him showing off the bicycle he donated to the auction, getting everyone laughing and raising a lot of money for a cause he cared about deeply," Maxwell Drever, a close friend of Williams's and co-host of the evening, »

The 10 Best Improvised Scenes in Film

21 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Even though scripts play an incredibly important part of the movie making process, sometimes a little improvisation is just what a movie scene needs to take it from good to great. CineFix has put together a fantastic video that highlights the 10 greatest improvised scenes in film history. I think they did a great job putting this together, and I can't think of anything that I would add to it. Check it out! I've included the list of films mentioned in the video below.

Bridesmaids (2011)

A lot of this movie was the talented comedic actresses in the cast going off book, but Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone’s “Air Marshall” exchange takes the cake.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Marlon Brando’s performance as Col Kurtz was largely made up on the spot. And while we don’t endorse actors not learning their lines, we can’t fault what came of it in this instance… »

Fox’s Jim Gianopulos Leads Studio Through Uncertain Times

19 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos doesn’t have an easy job.

It’s hard enough to pick movies that connect with audiences. Today, studio chiefs like Gianopulos must navigate a rapidly shifting landscape where consumer demands, piracy and the collapse of the DVD market, as well as increasing competition from online diversions and quality cable TV shows, are wreaking havoc on the financial underpinnings of the film business. Media companies like Fox’s parent 21st Century Fox are on a quest to grow bigger in order to compete with digital superpowers like Google and pending mergers between cable and telco giants like Comcast and Time Warner Cable, and At&T and DirecTV. Gianopulos’ uberboss, 21st Century Fox chief Rupert Murdoch, made a surprise $80 billion bid to buy Time Warner that was rejected and he subsequently withdrew. But consolidation, it seems, is coming.

Week in Review: Aftermath of Robin Williams’ passing

15 August 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Although the events in Ferguson, Missouri have created a social media firestorm over the last week, much of the media cycle was dominated by the death of Robin Williams on Monday. Tributes have been pouring in, including this one and this one from Sound on Sight, and there has been some absolutely beautiful writing to go along with it.

It was first revealed that Williams died in a suicide after battling severe depression. Even more tragic news came when Williams’ wife, Susan Schneider, said he was just recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

“Robin’s sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson’s Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly,” she said in a statement.

But when someone iconic as Williams passes away, that’s never the end of the story, »

Martha Thomases: Comic Without Book

15 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Last year, I noticed an ad for Apple. I mean, you can’t not notice them, since they air every few minutes. This one was special, though, quoting someone quoting Walt Whitman. I wondered if it was made by the same agency that made the Patti Smith Levi’s commercial. And I wondered why the unseen narrator sounded so familiar.

It was Robin Williams, from The Dead Poets Society.

As I’m sure you know, Robin Williams died Monday. God, I’m going to miss him

Now is the time when I would like to tell you what good friends we were, but that would be a lie. Instead, I have only loved him since the first times I saw him do his stand-up on television shows. I was lucky enough to see him perform, twice.

The first time, back when John and I were publishing Comedy Magazine (and why »

Fox’s Emma Watts Re-Ups For Three Years After Robust Summer

14 August 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

As Stacey Snider gets closer to leaving DreamWorks to take a senior position under 20th Century Fox Film chairman/CEO Jim Gianopulos, questions have been rampant about the role for Tcf production president Emma Watts, who led the studio to its most killer summer in a long time. Gianopulos has answered some of those questions by staking Watts to a new three year deal.

“Emma is a proven and extremely talented production executive who has consistently led her division to great success, most recently through her stellar contributions to our remarkable summer slate,” Gianopulos said. “We look forward to her continuing contributions to our creative achievements in the years ahead.”

Last month, Fox became the first studio to pass $1 billion in domestic box office – and $3 billion worldwide – fueled by The Other Woman, the $730 million global grosser X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the »

First clip from the late Robin Williams' upcoming Merry Friggin' Christmas

14 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It is a sad fact that Robin Williams' last few years worth of work has been relegated to On Demand or straight to cable. Films like The Angriest Man In Brooklyn and World's Greatest Dad did not get the exposure the acclaimed Oscar winner had received in years past. Most of his big screen work was in supporting roles like Night At The Museum. With four films completed before his death, Williams will be seen again but how widely is unknown. The first of the four films to see release will be »

Robin Williams Celebrated His Final Birthday With Crystal the Monkey: Exclusive Details

It’s no secret that Robin Williams was beloved not only by his costars, friends, and fans, but also by members of the animal world who were touched by his kind spirit. Koko the gorilla, who is able to understand sign language, had an emotional reaction to the news of the actor’s death. And now well-known screen monkey Crystal, who costarred with Williams in the three Night at the Museum films, is sharing fond memories (through her trainer Tom Gunderson) of their last encounter.  In his penultimate Instagram picture, [...] »

An emotional 'Ask Drew' looks back at the life and work of the great Robin Williams

13 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems." - Robin Williams, "World's Greatest Dad" This is a very emotional "Ask Drew." This is, I would suspect, the closest you're ever going to see to me losing it on camera completely. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when there was a Robin Williams question, since it's still so fresh and so raw for so many people, but I couldn't have known just how hard it would be to talk about him. I mean, I have stared at the blinking cursor on my blank document page for almost two days now, grappling with one question:  how in the hell do you even remotely begin to sum up someone as huge as Robin Williams? We could start from the personal angle. I could tell you about the occasional e-mails I got from him when I was at Ain't It Cool, or the »

Robin Williams Death Spurs Sales — and Piracy — of His Movies

13 August 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

News of Robin Williams’ suicide this week has led to a predictable surge in sales of digital downloads and DVDs of his most-beloved movies — along with a spike in pirates swiping films like “Good Will Hunting,” “Dead Poets Society” and “Good Morning Vietnam” starring the comedic legend.

As of Wednesday morning, 12 of the top 13 best-selling DVDs on Amazon.com were movies or specials starring Williams. Less than a month ago, none of those titles were in the top 100 of the e-retailer’s bestsellers.

The No. 1 DVD on Amazon currently is 1993 favorite “Mrs. Doubtfire,” followed by “Good Will Hunting,” “Dead Poets Society,” “Good Morning, Vietnam,” “Patch Adams,” “The Birdcage” and “What Dreams May Come.”

At No. 8 on Amazon’s list is Christian drama “God’s Not Dead,” with the next five DVDs featuring Williams: “Robin Williams – Live on Broadway”; “Jack”; a two-disc release of “Patch Adams” and “What Dreams May Come »

No role could tarnish the brilliance of Robin Williams' genius

His final show, The Crazy Ones, wasnt his best, but for every great artist the inevitable misfires dont compare to the remarkable successes

Russell Brand: losing the divine madness of Robin WilliamsHadley Freeman: Williams weirdness brought out his best

It will now go down in the history books or, more accurately, Wikipedia pages that The Crazy Ones was Robin Williams last major project before he died on Monday. Yes, he plays Teddy Roosevelt in the not-yet-released Night at the Museum sequel and voices an animated dog in another unreleased project, but The Crazy Ones, which ran for one season on CBS, was the last time where he was front and center, the star of the show.

Already the media is eulogizing the series. Robin Williams: The Crazy Ones Was His Last Hurrah, says the headline in the La Times. From Mork & Mindy to The Crazy Ones: The TV Legacy of the Late, »

Robin Williams Left Behind Four Unreleased Movies

12 August 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The untimely death of  Robin Williams has certainly been felt, and will continue to reverberate in our minds and hearts, and on our screens, for years to come. Williams was at work on a number of projects before he died, four of which are films that are already in the can and will be seen this year and next.

The first project is Merry Friggin’ Christmas, an indie comedy with a November 7th release date, which also stars Joel McHale and Wendy McLendon-Covey. Williams plays McHale’s father, who joins his son on a road trip to retrieve some forgotten gifts. This sounds a little bit too close to some of Williams’s later film roles (like Rv), which left a little something to be desired, but just the presence of the comedian on screen will be enough to get me to give it a chance.

The Fate of Robin Williams' Unreleased Films

12 August 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

What will happen to Robin Williams' unreleased films?

When Robin Williams was found dead on August 11, he left behind an amazing library of films, but he also had several projects in the works that audiences have yet to see.

Pics: Robin Williams Through The Years

The most visible would likely be the sequel to 1993 hit Mrs. Doubtfire, which hadn't begun filming. It's hard to imagine anyone filling Robin's shoes in that role, and Variety indeed reports that the sequel is unlikely to go forward, though screenwriter David Berenbaum reportedly met recently with Williams to go over the script.

Williams also had several projects in the can, with Night at the Museum: Secrets of the Tomb, set to be released December 19, and Merry Friggin' Christmas scheduled to arrive November 7.
