Sony Employees Really Wish They’d Release Fewer Adam Sandler Films

4 December 2014 3:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When an unknown group of hackers (who may or may not be North Korean) leaked thousands of Sony's files, we didn't just find out what K. Fed was paid to cameo in The Interview and whether Annie's any good or not. In a text file called "Sony_2012_Comments," we also found a treasure trove of feedback from unknown Sony employees. Gawker sorted through the whole thing and found one common complaint: People at Sony really don't like working for a place that makes so many Adam Sandler movies. (Since 2008, the studio has released You Don't Mess With the Zohan, Grown Ups, Just Go With It, Jack and Jill, That's My Boy, and Grown Ups 2.)A selection of the employee complaints: Be more focussed and ruthless in directing our resources to businesses that will sustain the long term health of Spe - networks, broadcast TV shows, new movie franchises, digital »

First Trailer For Adam Sandler Dramedy The Cobbler Packs A Nostalgic Punch

12 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Former funnyman Adam Sandler’s career spikes every few years or so. Making a name for himself through a string of genuinely funny flicks in the ’90s, he has recently settled into a malaise of terrible comedies (Grown Ups, Jack And Jill) that ensure he’ll never have to worry about bills ever again. Then, out of the blue he’ll deliver a corking performance (Punch Drunk Love) that hints at a sterling actor lurking beneath his shouty curmudgeon persona. The question is, which Sandler should we expect from The Cobbler?

For Thomas McCarthy’s latest, Sandler plays New York cobbler Max. A happy-go-lucky sort, he longs for more adventure in his life. Lo and behold, at that precise moment of realisation, he stumbles across a magical totem that enables him to slot into the lives of his customers. Yes, a clever play on stepping into someone else’s shoes. »

Marcia Strassman: 12 Things You Didn’t Know About Her Career

26 October 2014 9:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Marcia Strassman made her mark as the 1970s version of Alice Kramden, playing the (mostly) understanding wife of Gabe Kaplan on ABC’s “Welcome Back, Kotter.”

But Strassman, who died Friday at 66, was in showbiz for more than 10 years before she wound up on the sitcom that became a pop culture touchstone, in part because it made a star of John Travolta.

Lithe and raspy-voiced, Strassman began her showbiz career on stage and also tried to become a pop star in the mid-1960s before her thesping work took off. After she got her break on “Kotter,” she became active in the Screen Actors Guild.

Here are 12 things you didn’t know about Strassman’s early career:

She got off to a good start in the pages of Variety. Her first reference came in the Sept. 11, 1963 edition, in an item noting that she would replace Liza Minnelli in Off Broadway’s “Best Foot Forward, »

Weta Workshop is Made Up of Wellington’s Eclectic, Equal-Rights Designers

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

Weta Workshop is the oldest of Peter Jackson’s five companies, and the hardest to define. And that’s the way they like it.

Richard Taylor, who runs Weta Workshop with his wife, Tania Rodger, believes in creative diversity. He has won Oscars in three categories: two for makeup, two in visual effects and one for costume design. It reflects his philosophy, “We can only survive if we innovate every day.”

The company built 48,000 individual items (props, costumes, etc.) for “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. For the “Hobbit” trio, the team produced 11,862 prosthetics, with 5,493 of these just for the Dwarves. Approximately 4 tons of silicone was used to make facial prosthetics for all the characters. In the past year, Ww has worked on 30 projects, including six films, plus numerous TV shows and videogames. “It adds to the tapestry of our staff’s lives,” says Taylor. “It’s added to the richness. »

Watch: New Trailer for 'The Humbling' with Al Pacino

8 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I want Al Pacino to be in a good movie. He is a great actor and deserves better than material he has been given over the past... who knows how long. From Stand Up Guys to 88 Minutes to Jack and Jill, I just feel so sad when a new Pacino movie comes out. His latest film is The Humbling, directed by Barry Levinson, which just got a new trailer. The film has played the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals to mixed reviews. Skimming what critics have been saying has me really confused. Some call it drama. Some call it a farce. Some say Pacino is boring. Some say it's his best performance in over a decade. I do not know what to make of it. The film will open the Austin Film Festival, so I will be seeing it there on October 23rd and will finally be able to judge for myself. »

‘Fiction Squad’ #1 exposes the seedy underbelly of children’s stories

4 October 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fiction Squad #1

Writer: Paul Jenkins

Illustrator: Ramon Bachs

Colors: Leonardo Paciarotti

Letters: Jim Campbell

Publisher: Boom! Studios

Children’s stories are darker than we realize. A lot darker. Fiction Squad takes this notion and runs with it straight into arms of crime. Written by Paul Jenkins,  Fiction Squad is considered to be a sequel of sorts to Fairy Quest.  Both comics take place in the larger world of Fablewood, a land where stories take on a life of their own. Jenkins’ third successful Kickstarter project, Fiction Squad holds a magnifying glass up to some classic tales in order to reveal the gritty reality lurking beneath the surface of “Once upon a time.”

While the outside world believes that the Realm of Children’s Stories is a happy carefree place, one man knows the truth. Frankie Mack. A failed gumshoe detective from a discarded thirty page crime novella in the Realm of Crime Fiction, »

Week in Review: What do Adam Sandler’s Netflix movies mean for Hollywood?

4 October 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Does Netflix have Eric Cartman’s Awesome-o working in their studios? You remember; he was the lovable robot who could invent Adam Sandler movies out of thin air, like “Adam Sandler falls in love with a Golden Retriever” or “Adam Sandler is stranded on an island and falls in love with a coconut.” If so, that robot has led them to sign a deal with Sandler’s Happy Madison productions to produce and distribute four films, all of which Sandler will star in and produce. Additionally, Netflix will bankroll each of the films, the budget of which on previous Sandler films have averaged roughly $80 million (though where that money goes in the budget is anyone’s guess). This comes days after news that Netflix’s first feature would be the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel.

Sandler commented typically tastefully in a statement via THR, saying, “When these fine people came »

After Adam Sandler, what's Netflix's next niche?

3 October 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Netflix has signed a deal to make four new Sandler movies but here are some other categories the service could target

Plenty of people were stupefied when Netflix announced a groundbreaking deal with Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions, where the star would release his next four movies directly to the video streaming service.

Adam Sandler? Really? all the snobs who are Netflixs biggest champions asked. After all, this is the guy whose recent flops include Blended, Thats My Boy, Jack and Jill, and something about a Zohan. These are movies that you watch on a plane, and not even on the way there. These are movies you watch on the way home because you already watched your first two choices of crappy movie on the way there, so youre stuck with either this or Real Steel where Hugh Jackman fights as a robot.

Adam Sandler Will Produce, Star In Four Films Exclusively For Netflix

2 October 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Just days after Netflix announced its partnership with The Weinstein Company for its first feature film and follow-up to Ang Lee’s martial arts box office hit from way back in the year 2000, the subscription-based video on-demand service issued a release notifying the world that its 50 million subscribers will be getting some more major motion pictures. Adam Sandler is on board to star in and produce four movies exclusively for Netflix (and, undoubtedly, this is what Sandler and Netflix execs were doing when the news went public). The comedian who got his start on Saturday Night Live as a featured player in 1991 and whose films have since grossed over $3 billion globally at the box office will work on the titles alongside Netflix and his very own Happy Madison Productions. “.When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for »

Netflix Makes Four Film Deal With Adam Sandler

2 October 2014 3:11 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Netflix is increasingly looking to make its presence felt not only as a channel for content, but also as a creator of movie and TV stuff. Earlier this week, the company announced a partnership to release the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel simultaneously with its arrival in cinemas and today has brought word of a four-film deal with… Adam Sandler?Yes, while you might wonder whether it’s a good idea to get into bed with the man behind Jack And Jill and That’s My Boy (and someone with flagging box office appeal in recent years), there is no denying that the Sand-man has a following. And Netflix, given its presence as a film streaming service, has the data to back it up, pointing to how often his movies are viewed by its customers.The deal means that Netflix will be the exclusive home to the four titles crated »

Spotlight on the Stars: Adam Sandler

1 October 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to sort of go back to the start of the series and take a look at someone who doesn’t get the respect that they deserve from the masses. Today, that person is Adam Sandler, one of the kings of comedy who also has a flair for drama when he decides to go that route. He’s a huge titan of studio comedy, for sure, but he’s got a load of talent for when he chooses to get serious. The laughs have shot him to the A-list, but when he’s gone for depth and emotion, he’s shown that he’s got some acting chops as well. He’s rather underrated overall, so a spotlight today is definitely in the cards for him. Sandler got his start towards the A-list through television when he was cast on Saturday Night Live »

Katie Holmes To Direct All We Had

12 September 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The ranks of female film directors are about to swell a little more, as Katie Holmes confirms her plan to helm the upcoming adaptation of the debut novel from Annie WeatherwaxAll We Had. The script is being written by Josh Boone (Stuck In Love, The Fault In Our Stars), with Holmes starring and pulling producer duties alongside Jane Rosenthal (Little Fockers) and Berry Welsh (NYC 22).

The story is described as ‘wry and sharply observed’ by publishers Simon And Schuster, and centres on a mother and 13 year old daughter, who find themselves existing on the verge of poverty in small town America, after their old life implodes. Holmes will play the role of the mother, but there is no news yet on wider casting.

While this news will almost certainly be met in many quarters with derision, it is important to note that, of late, Holmes has finally begun to come into her own. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Cobbler’

10 September 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Adam Sandler has taken some almighty drubbings from critics (including this one) for his series of increasingly moribund comedies over the past few years, so it deserves to be stated upfront: Of the many things that go horribly wrong with his latest, “The Cobbler,” none are even remotely his fault. In fact, credit him for taking on such an unusual project — a largely serious tale about a shoe repairman who can magically take on the appearance of his customers by donning their footwear — helmed by a director, Tom McCarthy, whose track record was previously unblemished. But the result is . Picked up by Image Entertainment, the film will surely test the limits of Sandler’s drawing power, and word of mouth might not be kind.

Though “The Cobbler’s” premise might make it seem an unusual choice for McCarthy, one can almost imagine it as a magical-realist twist on his lovely 2007 film, »

Venice Film Review: ‘The Humbling’

29 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An actor prepares to face the final curtain of his career in “The Humbling,” director Barry Levinson’s free-form adaptation of Philip Roth’s penultimate novel, about a star of stage and screen beginning to lose the tricks of his trade (and possibly his grasp on reality). In one of those curious quirks of timing, Levinson’s film arrives hot on the heels of another polymorphous movie about an actor in crisis, Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Birdman,” in whose deservedly large shadow it may be doomed to dwell. But where Inarritu’s exuberant style piece calls to mind the likes of Fosse and Fellini, “The Humbling” feels closer to the intimate theater/film hybrid works of Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn (“My Dinner With Andre,” “Vanya on 42nd Street”) in its lo-fi aesthetics and gently playful sense of art imitating life imitating art. , though doing so will surely prove to be an uphill climb. »

Last week a trailer for Adam Sandler's Men, Women & Children was released, and most of you seemed to like the first look at Jason Reitman's new movie. But just because Sandler is appearing in a film that likely won't feature that many fart jokes doesn't mean we've forgiven him for starring in movies like Jack And Jill, That's My Boy, and of course, Grown Ups.

New Images For The Cobbler Released

12 August 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Full disclosure: I am a frustrated Adam Sandler fan. Before you gasp in horror and dismiss everything I’ve ever written, hear me out. The operative word here is ‘frustrated.’ What is the cause of my discontentment? Well, about 95% of his film output, to be precise. I have exactly zero interest in Grown Ups, or its sequel. You could not pay me to invest time in Don’t Mess With The Zohan, and I have no intention of watching Blended, ever.

Punch-Drunk Love, however, is one of my favourite movies – largely due to Sandler’s performance – and I have a deep appreciation for Funny People. I even have a soft spot for Spanglish, since we’re sharing details. What do these films have in common? They require Sandler to act with real emotional depth – and that is something I have been waiting for him to do again since 2009. I »
