The Apprentice 2014: episode three as it happened

22 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

There were 17 outstanding candidates vying to be Alan Sugars business partner. But how did they cope with producing their own home fragrance? Julia Raeside watched through her fingers

10.00pm BST

Heavens to Betsy, its advert week next week! Are we there already? My cup runneth over. Im heading downstairs to the comments now but thanks for coming and Ill see you here next Wednesday just afore 9pm.

And if you want some excellent pallet-cleansing telly now, go to Channel 4 where Grayson Perry is doing a brilliant thing that you absolutely have to watch.

I think the editing was a bit crass this week because usually I cant guess. You heard me, editors. Wither subtlety, huh?

Adam McKay Plans to Make Step Brothers 2 in a Few Years

22 October 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Director Adam McKay (The Other Guys, Step Brothers, Anchorman, Talladega Nights) is great at creating successful comedies. And even though he's always offered an opportunity to make a sequel to one of his films, he would rather work on original properties. But that changed last year, when McKay developed a sequel to "Anchorman." Unfortunately, the film only earned $174 million worldwide on a $50 million budget, far less than what everyone expected. One would think that McKay learned his lesson and would stay clear of any more sequels. But it turns out that one of the many projects he's working on is "Step Brothers 2." "We have a whole story, an outline that we're happy with," he confirmed. "We're not gonna do it now because we just did a sequel (Anchorman 2). I don't wanna get into the sequel business too much. It was kind of a novelty to do one of them »

Happy Halloween in new Big Hero 6 TV spot

20 October 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Walt Disney Pictures has wished everyone a Happy Halloween with the latest TV spot for its upcoming animated feature Big Hero 6, which you can watch below…

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.

Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) and features the voice talents of »

Ayer Talks 'Suicide Squad', McKay on 'Ant-Man' Rewrites, and 'Cap 3' is Gonna Be Huge

20 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last week, when Warner Bros. announced its entire DC Comics slate through 2020, perhaps the biggest point of intrigue for me was the announcement of Suicide Squad, about a team of incarcerated supervillains taking on high-risk black ops missions for the U.S. government in exchange for reduced prison sentences. In addition to announcing the movie, Warners also mentioned David Ayer would helm the A-Team-esque actioner. Suicide Squad is a property I know nothing about, save for the quick premise above, but it certainly sounds promising and it seems to fit well within its director's wheelhouse. Ultimately I think it could turn out pretty well, especially if Ayer is able to make good on what he recently told Empire regarding what audiences can expect for the film: "I can say that it's a Dirty Dozen with super-villains. Then I can ask the question, 'Does a movie really need good guysc'" Further, »

Adam McKay Reveals the Changes He Made to 'Ant-Man' Script

19 October 2014 9:33 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Adam McKay isn't directing Ant-Man, but he has definitely left his mark. McKay, director of Anchorman and The Other Guys, told Collider that the film's star, Paul Rudd, asked him to help rewrite the potential tentpole. The two then spent six to eight weeks working on the script that director Edgar Wright left behind after exiting the project in May. "We just shaped the whole thing. We just tried to streamline it, make it cleaner, make it a little bigger, a little more aggressive, make it funnier in places — we just basically did a rewrite," McKay said.

Two new clips from Big Hero 6

19 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a few days since we’ve seen any promotional material for Big Hero 6, so Disney has rectified the situation by dropping two new clips from the animated adaptation of the Marvel Comics series, which we’ve got for you below…

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred.

From Batman to Birdman, Where Have You been Michael Keatonc

17 October 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"It sucked... It just was -- awful," Michael Keaton says of Batman Forever in the following "CBS Sunday Morning" interview piece, which largely asks "Where has Michael Keaton beenc" It's a good little piece as we learn Keaton turned down a reported $15 million to play Batman a third time. The role would eventually go to Val Kilmer and while the question of where has Keaton been floats in the air... Well, since Batman Returns he's made The Paper, Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown, starred in White Noise, voiced characters in Pixar's Cars and Toy Story 3 and was an excellent contribution to The Other Guys. Granted, none of those roles stacks up to his new film, Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), which I had the pleasure of seeing just this morning and while I'll have my review for you on Monday, let me just say the hype around this one is for real, »

Critical Mass: Michael Keaton takes flight in 'Birdman'

17 October 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Keaton was the first movie actor to say, "I'm Batman." In 1989, Keaton defied the skeptics who'd shrieked when Tim Burton cast him as the Caped Crusader when Batman became a blockbuster, laying the groundwork for the future of superhero franchises and, hence, Hollywood. But after a popular sequel, Keaton hung up the cape, and despite some memorable performances since then—The Paper, Jackie Brown, The Other Guys—he's never found another role with either the depth or profile of Batman. Until now, perhaps. In Birdman, Keaton plays someone we immediately identify—even if he claims he does not. Riggan »

'Birdman' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About Michael Keaton's Big Comeback Movie

17 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Keaton is perhaps best known for playing Batman in a pair of Tim Burton-directed superhero movies, whose visionary tone has set the standard for the genre until this day. And now he's stepping back into the superhero suit (sort of) for "Birdman," the latest film from "Babel" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

"Birdman" tells the story of an actor who has been immortalized in a series of superhero movies (played, obviously, by Keaton), who decides to attempt a comeback by writing, directing, and starring in a stage adaptation of a Raymond Carver story. Of course, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. (Andrea Riseborough, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, and Emma Stone co-star.)

So why is everyone talking about this relatively little movie that could conceivably do very big things? Read on to find out!

‘Birdman’ soars high with stellar performances and brazen cinematography

17 October 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Written by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu

USA, 2014

The cast and crew, fly high in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), directed by visionary Alejandro González Iñárritu. Michael Keaton stars as Riggan Thomson, a washed-up actor who never bounced back from his peak stardom days as part of a 1990s superhero franchise, and who is desperate to gain back some spark for his faded career. Riggan attempts to jolt himself back into the limelight through the triple threat of writing, directing and starring in a Broadway adaptation of Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.

Much of the film’s content can be compared to Keaton’s own career and his peaking success in the  late 80s/early 90s with Tim Burton’s Batman films, and although »

Your Top Three: Michael Keaton Movies

15 October 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. Four years ago, Michael Keaton made a memorable appearance in the comedy The Other Guys, playing a police captain who also works at Bed, Bath and Beyond and unintentionally quotes TLC all the time. Between that and a vocal role in Toy Story 3, it appeared he was making a comeback. Well, maybe he can try again with the acclaimed new meta drama Birdman, in which he plays an actor making a comeback of his own. Keaton is in need of a comeback after many years of such uncool gigs as playing Dad to Lindsay Lohan in Herbie: Fully Loaded and to Katie Holmes in First Daughter (in which he's also the president, at least). This is a guy who went from Batman to snowman in...

Answering the Birdman signal, Keaton soars again

14 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

When Michael Keaton met Barack Obama shortly before Obama would become president, the then-senator had a question for the actor.

"Why don't you make more movies?"

It's a quandary that has long bedeviled moviegoers just as it has, so it seems, heads of state. Why did the roundly beloved Keaton - a manic comic actor, an intense live wire, a real-deal movie star - become such an infrequent presence on the big screen?

Even at the height of Keaton's stardom in the 1980s and '90s, he was famously picky, usually doing a movie a year and turning down about as many hits (Splash, JFK, among them) as he said yes to. But after a handful of flops in the late '90s and early 2000s, Keaton all but disappeared from movies.

"I did turn a lot of things down. But a lot of the things I turned down, you would have turned down, »

Watch Two Clips from ‘Birdman’ Starring Michael Keaton and Edward Norton

12 October 2014 10:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Birdman, the new film from Alejandro González Iñárritu, has been one of our most anticipated films of 2014. The movie, which opens limited on October 17, has released two new clips which we’ve embedded below.

We caught our first screening of Birdman over at Telluride last month. In her amazing review, Lane Scarberry writes, “ Birdman is director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s mad masterpiece about one man’s search for relevance and validation. It’s a striking and welcome return to form for Michael Keaton, who has long been absent from the spotlight, bar occasional supporting roles in the likes of The Other Guys and the RoboCopremake. The surprisingly meta world of Birdman is more along the lines of a Charlie Kaufman concoction than something Iñárritu would normally attempt. His crushingly sad takes on existence in Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel and Biutiful have inventive plot devices about intersecting lives, but Birdman is »
