Kevin Hart First Actor In Sony Email Hacks To Respond

11 December 2014 2:27 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Kevin Hart let his 10 million Instagram followers know where he stood today on becoming part of the Sony Pictures hacking attack headlines currently ripping through Hollywood. His post comes in response to the publication yesterday of leaked emails written by Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper about UTA agent Jeremy Zimmer, who asked for money beyond Hart’s $3 million paycheck when the studio asked if the actor-comedian would tap his vast social media following to promote a film.

In the missives, Culpepper writes in what is believed to be a reference to Hart, “I’m not saying he’s a whore, but he’s a whore.”

Hart’s response today:

As Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr reported yesterday, Hart and Culpepper spoke and laughed off the emails, writing that it’s not uncommon for them to talk to each other like that — or for Culpepper to talk to most people in Hollywood like that. »

Red-Band Trailer for Chris Rock’s Comedy Top Five

6 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It’s been a few years since Chris Rock made a good film. The last movie he made was Grown Ups 2, but the last good movie that I saw him in and enjoyed was in 2010’s Death at a Funeral. He has a new film coming out called Top Five that he wrote, directed, and stars in. It looks like he made a great movie that his fans will enjoy, and I’m looking forward to checking it out. Today we have a red-band trailer for the film for you to enjoy.

Pulsing with the rhythm of his greatest stand-up, Chris Rock’s Top Five takes things to the next level, reveling in the high and the low, and blending a star-studded comedic romp with an irresistible romance. Top Five digs under the surface of show business, politics, rap, and the exigencies of being black and famous today—holding »

The Skeleton Twins movie review: oh brother how art thou?

6 November 2014 7:40 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Funny and sad and wise and wonderful… with an absolutely heartbreaking, career-changing performance by Bill Hader. I’m “biast” (pro): really like Kristen Wiig

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Oh my god, I love this movie. I love not only the movie itself — it is funny and sad and wise and wonderful — but I love how it snuck up on me and made me fall in love with it out of nowhere. (It’s so rare for me to be this surprised by a film!) I knew nothing about it except that it stars Saturday Night Live alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader… and that’s it. If I assumed anything at all, maybe it was that I was in for some sort of wacky comedy — but I don’t recall even that minimal level of expectation.

But this… »

Rage movie review: Nicolas Cage’s public mid-career crisis takes a pathetic turn

17 July 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Sporadically hilariously awful, but mostly cheap, amateurish and so distasteful it borders on the vile. Poor Nicolas Cage and his foundering career. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

At first I figured that it was only that Nicolas Cage had seen what Taken did for Liam Neeson — gave him a boost as a late-middle-aged badass action hero — and figured he’d get in on that. The premise here, after all, is this: Once-was mobster — that would be Cage’s Paul Maguire; it was the Irish mob — goes on the offensive after his teenaged daughter is kidnapped, apparently by some rival Russian mobsters he once pissed off. What could go wrong for a worn-out actor we’re all tired of seeing who is desperate to jump-start his career?

In fact, Rage is so far down the »

DVD Release: Some Velvet Morning

28 May 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: June 24, 2014

Price: DVD $26.95

Studio: Cinedigm

Writer/director Neil Labute (Death at a Funeral) looks at lust and love independent film Some Velvet Morning.

Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) stars in the drama as Fred, an attorney leaves his wife of 24 years then turns up on the doorstep of his former mistress, Velvet (Alice Eve, Men in Black 3), four years after they’ve broken up. While Fred is happy they can finally be together, Velvet isn’t so sure she wants that — or ever wanted that.

As Fred attempts to rekindle their romance, his persistence becomes obsession.

Rated R, the 2013 movie got mixed reviews from critics and moviegoers, with some loving it (like Arizona Republic critic Bill Goodykoontz who said it’s “well worth watching and arguing over”) and others hating it (including the New York Observer‘s Rex Reed, who described it as “a sad example »

Ride Along review

27 February 2014 11:36 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Luke Savage 28 Feb 2014 - 07:35

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart star in the big Us comedy hit Ride Along. So: is it any good?

Three things you should know about Ride Along: it’s got someone who calls himself ‘Lil P-Nut’ listed amongst its cast; Ice Cube’s funniest moment involves his straight-faced reading of the line ‘Thanks Assface’; and Laurence Fishburne turns up at one point, doing a pretty good impersonation of Laurence Fishburne slumming it.

If you’re happy with all that, then Ride Along is for you.  If you’re wavering, let me try a pitch to sum up the film’s deft play with narrative and genre convention.  Here goes: ‘Kevin Hart and Ice Cube go on a ride along’.  No?  Come on …

To be fair, Ride Along doesn’t pretend to have any ambition beyond what its trailer has already shown us.  Ice Cube is a serious cop. »

What Kind of Television Does Neil Labute Really Want to Make?

21 February 2014 1:42 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Way back in September, NBC announced that it was developing "Harmony House," a half-hour romantic-comedy series about a psychiatric resident who falls in love with a mental patient. It's an offbeat premise, but it's not half as strange as the announcement of who would write and serve as executive producer: Neil Labute. Labute is no stranger to career curveballs -- he followed his bilious black comedies "In the Company of Men" and "Your Friends & Neighbors" with the odd satire "Nurse Betty," and a return to familiar territory of "The Shape of Things" with his wackadoo remake of "The Wicker Man" and a pair of work-for-hire jobs ("Lakeview Terrance," "Death at a Funeral"). He's an uneven filmmaker, not to mention divisive, with his caustic voice often curdling into airless misanthropy and misogyny whenever his portraits of male pathology lose their sense of autocriticism. But whatever can be said for his films and plays, »

Interview: Co-Stars Michael Ealy, Regina Hall Tell ‘About Last Night’

11 February 2014 10:47 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The path to this year’s remake of the 1986 film “About Last Night” starts right here in Chicago, based on the original 1974 stage version, “Sexual Perversity in Chicago” by David Mamet. Two co-stars in the remake – Michael Ealy and Regina Hall – visited the source city to talk about their version.

After working mostly on stage in the late 1990s, Michael Ealy broke out in a big way (see the story below) in the popular “Barbershop” (2002). This led to steady work with roles in “2 Fast 2 Furious” (2003), “Never Die Alone” (2004) and the pivotal part as “Tea Cake” in the Oprah Winfrey produced 2005 TV movie of the classic novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neal Hurston. Recently, he was featured in “Think Like a Man” (2012) and “Last Vegas” (2013). Ealy takes on the role of Danny in “About Last Night,” played in the 1986 version by Rob Lowe.
