Jennifer Aniston’s Husband on Brangelina Divorce: ‘There Are Bigger Things to B—- About’

27 September 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stop the presses! Jennifer Aniston‘s husband has given a brief comment on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s divorce. Justin Theroux, an actor (“The Leftovers”) and screenwriter (“Tropic Thunder”) who married Aniston in 2015, sympathized with the six kids caught in the middle of the divorce, but not with the general population enthralled by the A-list couple’s split. “As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children, and that’s all you can really say,” Theroux told Business Insider while promoting his next movie, “The Girl on the Train.” Also Read: »

Whoopi Goldberg Discusses Her Oxygen Modeling Show ‘Strut’ and Transgender Casting

20 September 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“They’re the best people in the world,” Whoopi Goldberg says about the cast of “Strut,” her new Oxygen show that follows a group of models signed to Slay Model Management, an exclusively transgender modeling agency.

The first reality modeling show to focus solely on transgender artists, “Strut,” which Goldberg executive produces with her producing partner Tom Leonardis, is breaking ground in the unscripted space and marks the latest series in the recent wave of trans-centric programming.

“Our programming commitment is to showcase people on journeys to find their truth — and be their truth. This is a generation who most definitely aren’t going to be confined by yesterday’s social mores and rules,” Rod Aissa, executive vice president of original programming and development at Oxygen, tells Variety.

For Oxygen, “Strut” marks the first series to feature an all-trans cast, following in the footsteps of its NBCUniversal sister network E!, which »

Apple iTunes Hikes Prices of Studios’ 10-Movie Packs to Up to $50

13 September 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After offering six different 10-movie bundles for a special one-day price of $9.99 on Monday, Apple’s iTunes is keeping them around for a while longer — but has raised the prices for each of the packs to between $35 and $50.

The promo, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Apple selling digital movies, drew participation from Warner Bros., Universal Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Paramount Pictures and Lionsgate. Disney and 20th Century Fox were the major studios that sat out the “10 Years of iTunes Movies” deal.

Still, while they’re not the one-dollar-per-movie bargain iTunes users in the U.S. were able to score Monday, the six bundles are still cheaper than if you were to buy the ten movies separately from Apple. For example, Warner’s $49.99 ten-pack would cost $152.90 for the HD titles if purchased individually.

For now, the 10-movie bundles look to be a limited-time promotion by Apple. That said, iTunes Movies routinely »

Apple iTunes Offers 10-Movie Bundles for $10, With Disney and 20th Century Fox Sitting Out Promo

12 September 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Apple has teamed with five Hollywood studios for six different ten-movie bundles — priced at $9.99, or a buck per movie — in a one-day promotion celebrating the 10th anniversary of the tech giant selling digital movies.

Notably, neither Disney nor 20th Century Fox are among the studio partners for the “10 Years of iTunes Movies” deal. In Disney’s case, it operates its own digital-movie distribution service, Disney Movies Anywhere, which lets users download Mouse House titles and watch them on a variety of platforms.

The movie bundles became available early Monday and are available for only a 24-hour period, for iTunes users in the U.S.

The six different bundles are:

Warner Bros.: “The Judge,” “Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow,” “Pacific Rim,” “Magic Mike,” “Contagion,” “The Town,” “The Hangover,” “Sex and the City: The Movie,” “300,” “Superman ReturnsUniversal Studios: “Ride Along,” “Identity Thief,” “Rush,” “Snow White & the Huntsman,” “The Adjustment Bureau, »

Denial review – Rachel Weisz makes heavy weather of Holocaust courtroom drama

12 September 2016 10:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Despite its pedigree – with a top-notch cast and a script by David Hare – this drama about the real-life libel case involving disgraced historian David Irving never comes to life

Denial is textbook Oscar bait: an autumn release recounting an inspiring real story about fighting prejudice, led by a showy performance from an Oscar winner, written by an award-winning playwright, and buffeted by a swelling, emotional score. However, patches of it are so ludicrously hammy it plays like one of those unbearably corny fake films teased at the beginning of Tropic Thunder.

Top Ten Box Office Takeaways: Why ‘Ben-Hur’ Is Biggest Flop Among Wimpy Openers

22 August 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The studios often save the dog days of August for their weakest performers and sure enough, this weekend proved the rule. (In the past,  “The Butler” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Straight Outta Compton” did strong business in August.) Yes, “Suicide Squad” grossed over $20 million, as it became the first non-animated film to have a three-peat at number one since “Dead Pool.” But three weak new releases— “Ben-Hur” (Paramount), “War Dogs” (Warner Bros.) and “Kubo and the Two Strings” (Focus) —opened to less than $15-million.

Making it even more challenging for this trio of weak domestic performers to make their money back: None are scheduled to open in China, which is increasingly the second and sometimes biggest single territory for theatrical grosses. That’s a big deal in a studio world increasingly shifting its focus on a sure thing.

TV Review – Jean-Claude Van Johnson – Pilot Episode

20 August 2016 2:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe reviews the pilot episode of Jean-Claude Van Johnson

For The Muscles From Brussels, Mr Jean-Claude Van Damme, the notion of sending himself up is nothing new. Many stars may find the idea of mocking themselves as too much for their ego to handle, but Jean-Claude (despite often being accused of having no small ego himself) has happily played the fool in the last few years. It started with the surprising Jcvd, in which he played an exaggerated version of himself caught up in a Post Office Heist. It remains the most critically acclaimed film of his career and a film that struck a chord with critics and on the festival circuit.

After that Van Damme never quite managed to escape direct to video action hell, albeit with his brief cinematic comeback in The Expendables 2. Again that film was a complete send up of the genre that brought »

Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly To Reunite For Holmes & Watson

17 August 2016 3:59 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Benedict Cumberbatch playing the super sleuth for the BBC, the character getting an American makeover with Elementary, and Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law apparently getting ready for a third installment of the feature film franchise, you might think we’re all a bit Sherlock Holmes-ed out at this stage. Well, Sony Pictures don’t seem to think so, tapping Tropic Thunder screenwriter and Get Hard director Etan Cohen to take the reins of Holmes & Watson, a comedic take on the super sleuth and his loyal side kick. What will make you stand up and take notice though is that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have signed on the dotted line to take the lead roles of Sherlock Holmes and James Watson respectively, marking the third feature collaboration between the pair following Talladega Nights and, of course, Step Brothers (I’m not counting Reilly’s cameo in »

Will Ferrell, John C Reilly for new Sherlock Holmes comedy

16 August 2016 5:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Aug 17, 2016

The Step Brothers stars Will Ferrell and John C Reilly are coming back together for Holmes & Watson...

There are two Sherlock Holmes shows on TV at the moment, and one dormant movie franchise that might be starting back up. So why not another? Clearly, the market hasn’t saturated yet, and maybe there is humour to be found in the overabundance of deerstalker caps? This must be the thinking at Sony since the studio has just given the greenlight to Will Ferrell and John C Reilly in Holmes & Watson.

Deadline reports the long-stalled project was put into turnaround by Sony Pictures Tom Rothman when he first came aboard Columbia Pictures. Originally, a Sherlock Holmes comedy with this title had been devised as a star vehicle for Sacha Baron Cohen, but that project has since stalled for likely financial reasons. But Ferrell and Reilly have long had a »

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly to sleuth out ‘Holmes & Watson’

16 August 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Reunited and it feels so good. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are getting back together, this time to star in Holmes & Watson, a comic version of Sherlock and his trusted sidekick. Deadline is reporting that the movie will be directed by Etan Cohen, who previously directed Ferrell in the 2015 movie Get Hard. Cohen also wrote Get Hard as well as blockbuster comedies Tropic Thunder and Men In Black 3. Ferrell and Reilly have joined forces previously, in the 2008 flick Step Brothers and in 2006’s Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby. Both movies were hits with Step Brothers grossing an unadjusted $128 million globally while Talladega Nights brought in $162 million worldwide. The two were in talks to work with Adam McKay on a border patrol comedy, but this project still seems to be in development. This is not the only Sherlock Holmes movie being discussed these days.   In a May interview, »

Paul W.S. Anderson is bringing his Resident Evil saga to an end after six movies with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, set for release in January 2017. Yesterday we were treated to the Japanese trailer, a new poster and the full domestic teaser trailer – but what did our writing staff make of it?

Anghus Houvouras: Has there ever been a franchise as consistently terrible as Resident Evil? Paranormal Activity? Paul Blart: Mall Cop? Underworld? Police Academy (after the first two)? No sir, for my money Resident Evil is the king of the garbage heap, and this one looks just as smelly as the rest. To be fair, I’ve had some amusing moments while watching these thinly plotted, »

Natalie Portman to Star in HBO Miniseries From ‘Friends’ Co-Creator Marta Kauffman

5 August 2016 8:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO is developing “We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves” as a miniseries with Marta Kauffman’s Okay Goodnight production company. The network has ordered a script based on the novel of the same name by Karen Joy Fowler, with Natalie Portman attached to star and executive produce alongside Kauffman.

The story centers on college student Rosemary Cooke (Portman), whose “twin sister” — actually a chimpanzee — disappeared when she was five years old, with her older brother following not long after. Christopher Monger (of HBO’s awards juggernaut “Temple Grandin”) will write the adaptation. Gideon Raff, co-creator of Showtime’s “Homeland,” is also attached as an executive producer, as is Okay Goodnight’s Robbie Tollin. Hanna Ks Canter will co-produce.

Okay Goodnight is behind “Grace and Frankie,” starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. Tomlin is currently up for a lead comedy actress Emmy for the second season of the Netflix original, which premiered May 6 on the streaming service. Production »

6 Must-Watch Movies & TV Shows on HBO Now in August 2016: ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘The Aviator,’ and More

31 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

New Original Programming:

“Meet the Donors” (8/1)

“Dios, Inc.” - Season 1 Finale (8/5)

“Hitchcock/Truffaut” (8/8)

Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the La Rams” (8/10)

“El Negocio” -  Season 3 Premiere (8/12)

IndieWire Pick: “The Night Of” (Series Finale) (8/28)

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.

New Behind-The-Scenes Alien: Covenant Image Features Danny McBride In The Interior Of The Ship

22 June 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last time we got a glimpse of Michael Fassbender's David, and this latest behind-the-scenes snap from the set of Alien: Covenant provides a first look at Danny McBride (Tropic Thunder, This Is The End, Pineapple Express) alongside director Ridley Scott. No details on his character just yet - but it's obviously safe to assume he'll be a member of the Covenant's crew. The image also gives us a good look at the interior of the new spacecraft. “Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, and is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017. »
