Alvin & The Chipmunks Is Getting A 4th Movie Because Money

19 December 2014 12:20 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The billion-dollar franchise is back in action and moving forward on a new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. We.ll admit, the first film wasn.t too shabby, but between The Squeakquel and Chip-Wrecked the quality hasn.t quite been five stars. So why another film? Well, believe it or not, the franchise has already banked over $1 billion, and a new film is pretty much a guarantee for more money flow. While plot details have not been divulged, the title, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Road Chip sounds like the band is going on tour. The Hollywood Reporter announced the director that has signed on for the project. Walt Becker known for Van Wilder: Party Liaison, Wild Hogs, and the Disney film with John Travolta and Robin Williams, Old Dogs, has signed on to direct the fourth film. He.ll pair with screenwriters Adam Sztykiel (Due Date) and Randi Mayem Singer »

Alvin and the Chipmunks 4 (yes, 4) finds a director

19 December 2014 5:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having grossed over $1 billion around the world, it should come as no surprise that New Regency are looking to get Alvin and the Chipmunks back up on screen for a fourth outing. And now it seems as though they have a director.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Walt Becker has been hired to direct Alvin and the Chipmunks 4. The latest version of the script has been written by Adam Sztykiel, who has previously penned Made of Honor and Due Date. An earlier draft was penned by Randi Mayem Singer (Mrs. Doubtfire).

It is unknown if Justin Long (Tusk), Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds) or Jesse McCartney (Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy) will return to provide their voices as Alvin, Simon and Theodore or if Jason Lee (Mallrats) will reprise his role as Dave.

The first Alvin and the Chipmunks movie was released in 2009 and grossed $361 million worldwide, while Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel »

Look Who’s Still Talking – The Strange Hollywood History Of John Travolta

15 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

John Travolta is as fascinating and complex a member of the Hollywood fraternity as you could wish for. Iconic performer, experienced pilot, vocal Scientologist and mangler of pronunciation of Idina Menzel.

He has managed to appear in not just some of the best known, but also some of the best-full-stop films of the past forty years – Saturday Night Fever, Carrie, Grease, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty, Face/Off, The Thin Red Line, Hairspray and the upcoming Gummy Bear The Movie – whatever one might think of the consistency of his output (and there have been some horrendous misfires), it is hard to imagine too many actors playing Danny Zuko, Vincent Vega, Castor Troy, Sean Archer, Chili Palmer and Edna Turnblad with equal conviction.

After the temporary resuscitation of Look Who’s Talking turned out to be a false dawn, Tarantino did Travolta a favour of inestimable proportions by casting him in Pulp Fiction, »

Robin Williams: A Man of a Million Voices

13 August 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Yesterday we ran a story on some of Robin Williams’ most under appreciated performances. But as the remembrances keep rolling in and as new, gruesome details about his suicide become apparent, it became clear that Williams didn’t just have depth in his filmography; he was an actor and performer who displayed worlds of expression and moved so many in remarkable and distinct ways.

Rather than ask our staff to rattle off more of their favorites, we asked them to recall Williams’ personality and the legacy his work left on their lives. We’re looking at each side of his many faces as a comedian, a movie star, a voice actor and a true character, offering our final goodbye to a man who gave us so much.

Why Robin Williams's true genius lay in his weird and wonderful comedy

12 August 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor could steal the show in mainstream movies, but it was the crazy, manic riffs and improvisations of his early standup days that made him a unique talent

Robin Williams obituary

Peter Bradshaw: 'A remarkable performer, a brutal shock'

There were two dividing impulses in Robin Williams's performances that could, roughly, be called his American and British sides. On the American side, there was the slushy tendency towards sentimentality, for which he became increasingly known, which, at its best, resulted in Dead Poets Society, The Birdcage and Mrs Doubtfire, and, at its worst, became Patch Adams and Old Dogs. Hollywood has long had a tendency to adopt the finest and most interesting comedians and then determinedly blunt the hard edges that make them interesting. Along with Richard Pryor, Williams was the most obvious example of that.

Then there was what could be called Williams's British side, »

Robin Williams: A Huge Funny/Dramatic Talent Who Proved He Could Do It All — An Appreciation

11 August 2014 6:54 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

I didn’t see Robin Williams‘ attempt at a new sitcom, CBS’ The Crazy Ones. I didn’t want to. I didn’t want to think that the great Robin was, at only 62, already making the trip back to weekly TV half-hours after such a stellar, Oscar-winning career in films and such a bright, unhinged light on comedy stages for all of his career. It’s just too constricting for this kind of talent. It’s even sadder to think the show got cancelled after one season, a failure that must have been hard to take. No, my most recent memories of Robin Williams are on the big screen, where he seemed to be heading for a place of renewal, not only as the funnyman everyone knew, but really a fine dramatic actor. In this year’s The Face Of Love he played a supporting role as a man heartbreakingly »

CBS Films is moving forward with a Last Vegas sequel.  The 2013 Jon Turtletaub-directed comedy was a modest box office success last year, pulling in $134 million at the worldwide box office on a budget of just $28 million.  The cast was led by Robert De Niro, Kevin Kline, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Douglas in what was pitched as “The Hangover with old people”.  Deadline reports that David Diamond and David Weissman, whose resume includes The Family Man and Old Dogs, have been set to pen the script for the follow-up, taking over from the first film’s writer Dan Fogelman.  The plan is to bring Turtletaub and the entire main cast back, as the story will see the characters returning to their old stomping grounds in Brooklyn.  When they arrive, however, they discover that their home turf has changed significantly.

Studio: Lionsgate

Robin Williams and Mila Kunis in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Robin Williams (Old Dogs) has a bad day—a helluva bad day—in the comedy drama The Angriest Man In Brooklyn.

Williams plays overly bitter man Henry Altmann, whose anger really kicks into gear when he learns from a doctor (Mila Kunis, Ted) that he has a brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. This news kicks the curmudgeonly Altman into motion, and he sets out to reconcile with his wife, brother and friends in the short time he believes he has left.

Co-starring Peter Dinklage (TV’s Game of Thrones) and Melissa Leo (Flight) and directed by Phil Alden Robinson (who hasn’t helmed a film since 2002’s The Sum of All Fears), the R-rated Angriest Man In Brooklyn opened to lot of negative reviews upon it limited theatrical rollout in May. »

Kirk Cameron took a detour on his normal route to bashing gays, blaming current church leaders and straights for ruining marriage. “When people get too focused on redefining marriage, you’re distracted from the bigger problem — fornicators and adulterers. If the people sitting in the pews are fornicators and adulterers, the church will destroy marriages much more quickly than those outside the church. When God’s people mock marriage, God doesn’t take that lightly. The church isn’t taking God’s definition of marriage seriously. It’s not other people sabotaging marriage that’s the problem.”

WWE: 10 Superstars Under 35 That Will Dominate Wrestlemania 35

21 February 2014 10:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


From a talent point of view, WWE is in a period of transition. Its main show, Wrestlemania, is on the horizon, and for the past four-to-five years, WWE has had to rely on part-time wrestlers to sell its biggest show of the year. However, attractions like The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H, Brock Lesnar, and Batista aren’t going to be around forever. Old dogs like Big Show, Rey Mysterio, Mark Henry and Kane are on their last legs (almost literally with Rey). The company may have had its next version of Stone Cold Steve Austin in Cm Punk, but if he hadn’t quit the company a couple weeks ago, all signs pointed to Punk not re-signing with the company when his contract was up this June. Even its main stars, John Cena and Randy Orton, have »

Review Kaci Ferrell 22 Jan 2014 - 07:44

Being Human (USA) delivers a twist-filled episode. Here's Kaci's review...

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 That Time Of The Month

This week on Being Human USA...Twist.

We open where we left off last week: Suzanna, on the porch in front of a stunned Aidan. He stares at her, taking in that this is really happening. It says so much about Aidan's messed-up life that, faced with this seemingly improbable event, the first words out of his mouth are not, "How? Why?" Instead, he invites her in because Aidan Waite has manners thank you very much and when one's wife comes back from the dead one does not allow a lady to stand outside in the hot sun. That would be rude. But then the "how" gets answered for him: Suzanna can't come in because she's a vampire. And if you even have to wonder »
