16 May 2017 6:17 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

"They're making a movie about emojis? How is that going to work?" If you thought that when first hearing about Sony's The Emoji Movie, you're not alone. The film's star, T.J. Miller, wondered the same thing when he was first approached to lend his voice to its lead character. But after chatting with the minds behind the animated movie, including director Tony Leondis and producer Michelle Raimo Kouyate (Silver Linings Playbook, Hotel Transylvania), Miller realized...

14 May 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Normal Got Jennifer Lawrence This Far, but Mega-Stardom Has Officially Taken Over: A Look at the Actress' Pivotal Next Chapter

11 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

After she won an Oscar in 2013, Jennifer Lawrence insisted that nothing had really changed for her, at least as far as who she was on the inside. "I'm actually surprised at how surprised everyone is that nothing has changed or feels different," the actress said in an interview about nine months after she won Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook. "I think everyone believes that when you win an Oscar, it's like some sort of magical charm that changes everything in your life. It really hasn't. I have had the most amazing year—career wise—and I am so grateful and so honored, but it really hasn't changed anything for my personal life. I still put on my acting pants one leg at a »

Diane Keaton and Jacki Weaver to Star in Zara Hayes’ “Poms”

8 May 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Diane Keaton on “The Graham Norton Show

Diane Keaton and Jacki Weaver are forming a squad. Deadline reports that the pair have signed on to star in “Poms,” a comedy about women in a retirement community who start a cheerleading team. The project marks Zara Hayes’ narrative directorial debut.

Produced and financed by Sierra/Infinity, “Poms” will be shopped to buyers at Cannes this month. Shane Atkinson (“After West”) penned the script, and he and Hayes collaborated on the story.

Hayes is an accomplished documentary filmmaker who is best known for co-directing 2013’s “The Battle of the Sexes,” an exploration of the events leading up to the famous 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. A similarly-titled narrative version of the story — “Battle of the Sexes” — is set to hit theaters September 22. Emma Stone and Steve Carell star in the comedy, which is co-directed by Valerie Faris.

Kelly McCormick is producing “Poms” along with Mad as Birds Films and Rose PicturesRose Ganguzza.

Keaton is a four-time Oscar nominee who won in 1977 for “Annie Hall.” Weaver received nods in 2013 for “Silver Linings Playbook” and in 2011 for “Animal Kingdom.”

The past few days have brought news of a number of female-driven films with protagonists over the age of 60 — a welcome change of pace. Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot will star in “The Midwife,” a dramedy about the relationship between a midwife and the mistress of her deceased father, and Keaton, Jane Fonda, and Candice Bergen are set to topline “Book Club,” an indie comedy about lifelong friends in their 60s whose worlds are rocked after reading “50 Shades of Grey.”

Diane Keaton and Jacki Weaver to Star in Zara Hayes’ “Poms” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

‘He’s Good with a Baby!’ Bradley Cooper Gets Kudos from Ellen DeGeneres in First Full TV Appearance Since Baby News

5 May 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bradley Cooper may be new to fatherhood, but Ellen DeGeneres says she’s known for years that the actor would be a great dad.

In a Friday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cooper doesn’t talk about being a father — but that doesn’t stop DeGeneres, 59, from gushing about his parenting skills.

“I knew you’d be a good father when I saw you in American Sniper,” DeGeneres says, referring to the 2014 movie in which Cooper, 42, portrayed real-life Navy Seal Chris Kyle. “He’s so good with a baby.”

Cooper lets out a laugh — “I can’t believe you. »

19 Interesting Facts About the Movie Casino

18 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you make a film as unbelievably good as Goodfellas, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with repackaging it, moving it out to Vegas, and making it about running a Casino.   That’s essentially what Martin Scorsese’s movie Casino did.   Only in this case he removed Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino and replaced them with the likes of Sharon Stone and James Woods.   Is the movie the same as Gooodfellas?  Definitely not.  But it reminds me of how David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) keeps recycling his favorite actors into movies.   Oddly enough, Robert De Niro is in Russell’s films as well. While

Watch Robert De Niro as Bernie Madoff in 'The Wizard of Lies' Trailer

14 April 2017 6:44 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

How long has it been since Robert De Niro gave a really great performance? Maybe since his Oscar-nominated supporting turn five years ago in Silver Linings Playbook, right? But how long since his last truly great lead performance? It's been a while, which is why we're very excited about seeing him giving it all in the new trailer for HBO's The Wizard of Lies.  In the made-for-cable feature, De Niro portrays Bernie Madoff, the notorious investment fraudster behind maybe the largest Ponzi scheme of all time. The actor has transformed himself a bit for the role, which makes the part reminiscent of his physical feat for Raging Bull. Perhaps this performance won't compare, and it won't even be qualified for an Oscar, but it does seem like it...

After a successful first weekend at the box office, The Boss Baby, an animated comedy from DreamWorks Animation, had no trouble repeating at the box office.

Can Smurfs Knock Boss Baby Off the Top of the Box Office?

4 April 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Traditionally, April has never been one of the biggest months to open a movie, but that all changed a few years ago when the Fast & Furious franchise started finding success in the spring months. The next installment in that high-octane franchise, The Fate of the Furious, doesn't hit theaters until April 14, but this weekend, moviegoers will have three new films arriving in wide release, Sony's animated adventure Smurfs: The Lost Village, Warner Bros.' comedy remake Going In Style and PureFlix's The Case For Christ. None of these will (probably) be able to stop last weekend's winner, The Boss Baby, which will likely repeat atop the box office with $25.2 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Smurfs: The Lost Village, which marks the franchise's return to fully animated movies, instead of live-action/CGI hybrids, is expected to open in roughly 3,400 theaters, with Going in Style estimated to open in 3,000 theaters, while »
