The Interview Was a Horrible Experience Says Seth Rogen

30 April 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The end of 2014 turned into an insane battle at the box office for Sony Pictures as their comedy The Interview came under fire from unseen forces. The comedy, which was written and directed by Superbad duo Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, and starred Rogen and James Franco, was positioned to be one of Sony's big holiday releases. But the movie caused quite a bit of controversy, and was pulled from it's initial theatrical release. Looking back on it a year and a half later, all Seth Rogen can do is call it a miserable experience.

James Franco starred in the movie as dimwitted celebrity interviewer Dave Skylark, with Rogen playing his intrepid producer Aaron Rapaport. The duo land the interview of a lifetime when they are invited to North Korea to chat with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Skylark and Rapaport are soon contacted by the CIA, and tasked with »

In the comics, Everett Ross is a U.S. State Department employee who acts as a liaison to foreign diplomats, specializing in the country of Wakanda.  In the film, Ross is a government official who is involved with the manhunt for Bucky Barnes and by association, the Sokovia Accords.  Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, actor Martin Freeman says his small role in Civil War is just a precursor to bigger things later on in the McU.  "I think my character will develop a bit more as I enter the Marvel world a bit more which seems to be happening." Examining Freeman's remark reveals that he's learned a bit more about where Ross appears next.  Given his comic book counterparts association with Wakanda and T'Challa in particular, it's likely that Freeman shows up in the Black Panther movie, set for release on February16, 2018.  However, [without going into spoilers] the ending of Civil War provides »

Meryl Streep Reveals 1 of Her Least Favorite Acting Performances

19 April 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Meryl Streep expressed regret about one of her most lauded performances. The revered three-time Oscar winner played coy before eventually revealing dissatisfaction with her performance in 1981’s “The French Lieutenant’s Woman.” “I’m giving myself an out, but part of it was the structure of it,” Streep told titular host Graham Norton on his U.K.–based show. “It was sort of artificial because I was the actress playing ‘The French Lieutenant's Woman.’ At the same time, I was an American actress playing a British woman.” Streep starred opposite Jeremy Irons as an actor in a movie within a movie. Streep may not have been a fan of her own performance, but she still won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and a Los Angeles Film Critics Award for her dual performances as Sarah and Anna. She eventually lost the Oscar to Katharine Hepburn’s turn in “On Golden Pond. »

Meryl Streep Reveals the Movie Role She Didn’t Get Right

16 April 2016 3:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may have earned her a best actress Oscar nomination, but Meryl Streep wasn’t entirely pleased with one particular movie role.

“You won’t guess because I’ve just collected a lot of awards for that film,” she said Friday on the “The Graham Norton Show,” flipping her hair, jokingly. “It was venerated.”

She finally admitted the performance was in the 1981 movie adaptation “The French Lieutenant’s Woman.” Streep played an actress (opposite Jeremy Irons) in the movie-within-a-movie whose character was having an affair both on and off screen.

“I’m giving myself an out, but part of it was, the structure of it was sort of artificial because I was the actress playing ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman,'” she said. “At the same time I was an American actress playing a British woman.”

Streep won a Golden Globe and BAFTA for her role in the film, directed by Karel Reisz. »

8 April 2016 2:19 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Look, we all know that the Star Wars prequels don.t have much going for them. However, they do have one awesome trump card in their back pocket: Ewan McGregor and his portrayal of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. He proved himself so fit for the role that he ended up as one of the few elements from the prequels to make it into J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Despite such an honor, he apparently has a bit of trouble remembering his role in the recent film. Check out the video below to see more.     The man is definitely no padawan when it comes to charm. In a recent clip from The Graham Norton Show, the host brings up the fact that Ewan McGregor actually had a brief cameo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens that not many people picked up on; it takes place during Rey.s »

26 March 2016 8:52 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A little over ten years ago a decision had to be made about who would take over for Pierce Brosnan in the role of James Bond with the final list coming down to three names - Daniel Craig, Sam Worthington and Henry Cavill.

It was a role Craig ultimately won, but future Superman Cavill came close - his young age at the time reportedly suggested as being the main reason he didn't get the gig.

Now though, he's the perfect age and with talk that Craig may leave the role, could he be a potential candidate again? The actor appeared on BBC's "The Graham Norton Show" (via Et this weekend, he was asked if he would consider taking over the iconic role should his schedule allow it. He responded:

Why The Graham Norton Show is so special

Why are movie publicists so keen to plonk their stars on Graham Norton's sofa? Because of this...

When it comes to the UK film junket circuit, publicists inevitably get limited time with the talent involved in a major movie. Thus, when Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice comes along later this month, the demands on Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in particular will not be small. They’ll be expected to attend the film’s premiere, do a press conference, and do interviews with selected outlets.

And then there’s a strong chance they’ll end up on Graham Norton’s sofa.

I’ve been following Graham Norton’s chat shows since his earlier work on Channel Four, and his manner with his guests has rarely left me ever less than entertained while watching his programme. But I do think that The Graham Norton Show is something special, »

After more than a decade in development, 20th Century Fox finally gave the green light to Deadpool in 2014, after some early test footage leaked online and sent the internet into a frenzy. Appearing on The Graham Norton Show (via Comic Book), star Ryan Reynolds discussed the overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to the test footage, and revealed that it took less than 24 hours from the leak for the studio to give them the go ahead.

Deadpool has been the best and worst relationship I’ve ever been in,” said Reynolds. “Eleven years, I’ve been trying to get this movie made. We had a script, we did that about six years ago, then we had a little bit of test footage for the movie. That test footage sat on a shelf at Fox for four years, then about a year and a half ago, somebody accidentally leaked it on the Internet… »
