Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort fall for each other in The Fault in our Stars.

Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) and Ansel Elgort (Carrie) star in the drama-romance The Fault in our Stars, a favorite of fans and critics alike that’s already grossed a whopping $125 million at the domestic box office since opening wide in U.S. theaters this past June.

Hazel (Woodley) and Gus (Elgort) are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. Although the two teens face unlikely challenges, their »

17 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Nat Faxon and Will Forte have known each other for nearly 20 years, ever since they met at the Groundlings theater in Los Angeles. So, with Faxon set to star in Married, an FX relationship dramedy premiering tonight, Vulture felt no one would be better suited to interview him than his pal Forte. And move over, Judy Greer, who plays Faxon’s spouse on his new show — Forte and Faxon got on like an old married couple. Topics discussed: Faxon's Oscar victory for The Descendants, his acting résumé, and how much money he makes.Will Forte: Nathaniel, hello! Nat Faxon: Hi, Will! Hiiiiii!

Which former Oscar winners were nominated for 2014 Emmys?

10 July 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This morning was like Christmas for TV and Emmy fanatics, and among the nominees this year, as usual, were a slew of former Oscar winners. In the acting categories this year, it was no surprise to see Matthew McConaughey chalked up for his work in HBO's "True Detective" just four months after completing a near run of the movie awards season table that culminated in a Best Actor Oscar win for "Dallas Buyers Club." Will HBO's decision to put the show in the drama series category rather than miniseries hold him back from an Emmy, given the potential bounty of goodwill for Bryan Cranston and the final season of "Breaking Bad?" We'll soon find out. Joining McConaughey in the category was "Usual Suspects" and "American Beauty" star Kevin Spacey, nominated a second-straight year for Netflix's "House of Cards. In the supporting actor ranks, Jon Voight, Oscar winner for 1978's "Coming Home, »

Critical Unfairness: Just When Do We Wave the White Flag?

7 July 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The contradiction in film criticism certainly does not go unnoticed. Sure, there are countless films that are praised and applauded for its excellence in quality and creativity. Unfortunately, the overlooked cinema fare that deserves just as much attention (more so than some of the recognized critically-acclaimed selections on an impressive selection of critics’ and moviegoers’ radars) get lost in the proverbial shuffle. It is simply the professional hazard of the movie industry because not every well-received and standout gem will get its rightful due come major awards season in Hollywood.

Just how many times have we as movie reviewers and/or movie fans become indignant when we realized that the special piece of entertainment we personally and critically cherished came up short and empty in expectations? Again, every smart kid in the classroom cannot get a gold star as we remain a competitive society in the world of celluloid superiority. »

The Descendants writer/directors Jim Rash and Nat Faxon's directorial debut is a sweet, knowing tribute to teenage awkwardness, to divorced parents trying to restore family values and to those who find themselves as unlikely mentors. »

Variety’s Scott Foundas Remembers Paul Mazursky: A Poetic Farceur of American Lives

1 July 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Are you happy?” the woman asks her husband midway through Paul Mazursky’s “Blume in Love” (1973), to which he replies, “I’m just not miserable.” It is a flashback to earlier, relatively happier times in the busted-up marriage of the divorce lawyer Blume (George Segal) and his wife, Nina (Susan Anspach). But one can find the same scene or its close equivalent in most of Mazursky’s 15 feature films, which time and again centered on small-time American dreamers striving to feel a little less miserable in their lives.

The time was the early 1970s — that much-mythologized moment in Hollywood cinema — and Mazursky was among the directors whose work most embraced the new personal and sexual freedoms then taking hold in American culture and American movies. Divorce and adultery were laissez-faire subjects in his films when they were still taboo around the water cooler. Four years before “Blume,” his debut feature, »

Film Review: ‘A Picture of You’

27 June 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The pronoun in the title of J.P. Chan’s modest debut feature, “A Picture of You,” refers to the recently deceased mother of a bickering sibling pair who have come together to empty out her house, where unresolved emotions ricochet though the rooms as they take out their grief, guilt and frustrations on each other. Competently written and skillfully acted, the film seems to be melodrama-bound, when a shocking discovery and the sudden arrival of friends instead send it careening into comedy. A curiously likable, entertainingly laid-back Asian-American take on all-too-familiar dysfunctional family tropes, this Kickstarter-enabled effort boldly mines farce along with sentiment.

None of the negative vibes radiating from newly divorced, 39-year-old Kyle (Andrew Pang) and his sullen younger sister, Jen (Jo Mei), seem directed at their dead mother, a university professor apparently beloved by all who knew her. Dialogue-free flashbacks of Mom — who is seen serenely tooling on »

Fourth Clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

27 June 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Apes… do not want war!” Ape leader Caesar bellows this at the entrance of a human community, but with hundreds of apes riding horseback and clutching spears in their hands behind him, it sure looks like they’re prepared for war. The fragile co-existence between apes and humans looks ready to snap in the fourth clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

In the clip, Jason Clarke’s character Malcolm, determined to find a peaceful way for apes and humans to live together, walks ahead of the gun-toting crowd led by Dreyfus (Gary Oldman) to greet Caesar (Andy Serkis). But as you’ll see, Caesar has not visited to exchange pleasantries. We have three additional clips from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as well as the film’s official final trailer, for you to check out if you haven’t already.

New Clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

26 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Graphic novels can be the source of hours of entertainment, but in the apocalypse, they can be quite effective as an olive branch between enemy parties. While we’ve seen tension boiling over between humans and apes in previously released trailers and clips for the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the latest clip from the film shows a human and an orangutan enjoying one another’s company over a shared graphic novel.

The new clip showcases Kodi Smit-McPhee’s Alexander, who approaches Maurice the orangutan (Karin Konoval) with a trade paperback copy of Charles BurnsBlack Hole comic book series, which he then uses to see if his newfound friend can read.

“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, »

To celebrate The Fault in Our Stars topping the box office on its opening weekend, we've dug out 10 facts you may not have known about the young star.

1. Shailene Diane Woodley was born in Simi Valley, California on November 15, 1991. Her mother is a school counsellor. »

New Clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

20 June 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week, we’ve been getting a much better look at Dawn of the Planet of the Apes from the new trailer and the first clip release. If you can’t hold out until July 11th and need to see more, a second clip has made its way online and reminds us that humans should never underestimate the apes.

“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”

Contemporary Costume: Where Have the Aloha Shirts Gone?

19 June 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

While science-fiction and period costume can sell to collectors at auction for tens of thousands of dollars, the future of contemporary costume from the contemporary drama, comedy and thriller genres is unclear. Costumes from films set in the modern age are not valued as highly. Sourced from costume houses, high-street stores, and even actor’s own wardrobes, these pieces could be lost for good for future generations of collectors and fans if current mentality doesn’t change.

Contemporary costume, even from popular movies, is surprisingly hard to trace. What has happened to George Clooney’s Aloha shirts from The Descendants? The film’s costume designer Wendy Chuck isn’t sure. “I have no idea where his shirts went, probably into the stock at Fox costume house,” she guesses. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s iconic jacket worn as social armour in Brick? Another uncertain costume designer. Michele Posch rented three of the »
