How to Watch 'The Interview' Right Now

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's Christmas Eve, and Sony has released their comedy The Interview a day earlier than expected. Despite how you may or may not feel about the movie after you watch it, one thing is for certain: The Interview has earned its place in the history books for a number of different reasons. After being pulled from theaters because of a terrorist threat, Sony changed their minds and now The Interview is being released in 331 independent theaters on Christmas day. If you're still afraid that terrorists might blow up any of these theaters, Sony has also made the movie available to rent on a number of streaming services. And if you feel there is some kind of government agenda behind this whole ordeal, maybe you want to grab it off a torrent site in your own ode to freedom! Well, don't fret. Here's a list of where and how you can »

Find Out Where 'The Interview' Is Playing Christmas Day

23 December 2014 3:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Sony Pictures reversed their plans to cancel their theatrical release of The Interview earlier today, the decision sent indie theaters across the country into a frenzy to book the comedy in time for Christmas Day on Thursday. Deadline reports that Sony has implemented a 6 Pm Pst deadline for theaters to book the film, so the studio can send out hard drives containing the movie in time for these screenings. So far, a number of venues across the country have been confirmed, with several more likely to come as we get closer to the studio's deadline. Here's a statement from one source familiar with Sony's situation.

"Sony has had so many bookings coming in it is now focused on areas where a theater can guarantee a two-week run, or longer. They're so inundated with bookings they are being more careful about where they are booking [The Interview] in all the different markets. »

‘The Interview’ Release: List Of Theaters Set To Show The Film

23 December 2014 12:14 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Refresh for latest… Here’s a list of theaters confirmed to be showing Sony’s The Interview on Christmas Day after the studio worked with indie chains on a release plan finalized this morning. The venues have a deadline of 6 Pm Pt today to decide whether to run the movie on December 25, as Sony must send theaters the movie hard drives in time to make Christmas Day screenings. Some theaters are booking the film for later in the month or into January, so that deadline isn’t looming as large. As of 4 Pm, more than 200 theaters had signed on.

This is all happening fast so this list will continue to grow. We’re hearing that there are still internal discussions among art houses about whether to add the pic to their schedules, with security and previous commitments among the concerns. Some of the theaters had planned to be dark on Christmas Day, »

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Review

14 October 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Based on the children's book of the same name, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (which has to win something for being longest movie title of 2014) tells the story of Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould), a put upon 11 year old whose life never goes the way he wants, while for his family (led by parents Steve Carrell and Jennifer Garner) life couldn't be better. With his twelfth birthday looming, the tried and trusted birthday wish gambit comes into play, with Alexander wanting his family to experience one day in his shoes. What follows is a crazy twenty four hours for the Cooper family, where they have to deal with an ever escalating series of over the top problems. With Chuck & Buck and Cedar Rapids under his belt, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day sees director Miguel Arteta go a bit more family friendly, »

Q&A: Indie Helmer Miguel Arteta Goes Studio with ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’

9 October 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miguel Arteta began his feature film directing career in 1997 with “Star Maps,” which was nominated for the Independent Spirit’s Best First Feature Award. He followed with a series of critically acclaimed independent hits, including “Chuck & Buck,” “The Good Girl,” “Youth in Revolt,” and “Cedar Rapids.” Also an established television director, his small screen credits include “Freaks & Geeks,” “Six Feet Under,” “The Office,” “Enlightened,” and “American Horror Story.” His new film is a bit of a departure–a children’s film and a studio comedy. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” stars Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner and based on Judith Viorst’s beloved children’s book, hits theaters Oct. 10.What attracted you to this film?

In the first place, Steve Carell, who I just adore. I had a chance to work with him on “The Office,” and he was attached when I came in. And »

Privilege Parable: Arteta’s Trifling Adaptation of Famed Children’s’ Novel

Perhaps the most curious aspect of the live action Disney version of Judith Viorst’s 1972 children’s story (the first in a series), Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is that it’s helmed by Miguel Arteta, a director known for rather frankly adult material such as Chuck & Buck (2000), The Good Girl (2002), and Cedar Rapids (2011). What initially attracted him to the project, which was originally set to be helmed by Lisa Cholodenko, feels wholly absent from this end product, an extremely watered down version of the complicated human relationships generally on display in Arteta’s films. While one can’t really complain that this is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad film, per se, one shouldn’t be surprised that it’s calibrated specifically for a particular audience, the privileged white familial nuclear unit, »

Film Review: ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’

2 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An average American family becomes a giant human pinata in “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” a passable, tolerable, not unbearable, totally inoffensive adaptation of Judith Viorst’s beloved 1972 children’s book. Made to exacting Disney specifications, this is the sort of busily contrived, one-damned-thing-after-another farce where cars are smashed and Dad gets set on fire, but it all goes down with a spoonful of sugar and a cheery string of studio tie-ins — it’s PG-rated sadism with a smile. With Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner on hand to enliven the proceedings, the comedy at least zips along fast enough to wind up feeling almost shorter than its famous title, which could spark enough recognition among tots and parents to steal a decent-sized portion of the all-ages pie.

“I think I’ll move to Australia,” Alexander noted after the first of several groan-worthy setbacks in Viorst’s book, »

Couple Leaves Waiter $100 Tip for Bad Service: "We've Both Been in Your Shoes"

30 September 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Makenzie Schultz and her husband, Steven, didn't quite have the anniversary dinner they were hoping for. The couple went for sushi in a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, restaurant, but, as Makenzie said in a Facebook post Saturday, their service "sucked." Instead of being upset with their waiter, though, Makenzie and Steven generously tipped the waiter $100 on a $66.65 meal. Yep, even though it took "20 minutes to get water, 40 minutes for an appetizer and over an hour four our entree," the Schultzes paid a 250 percent tip (!) to their overworked waiter. "People all around us were making fun of the restaurant & how bad the service was," explained Makenzie, admitting, "Yeah, it was »

5 Adorable Behind The Scenes Stories From Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

10 September 2014 12:55 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of my favorite books when I was a young kid was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by author Judith Viorst (who I would learn later in life actually grew up in the same town as me). Like many of you, surely, I could easily relate to the story of a boy having an unbelievably bad day, leading to dreams of escaping off to Australia. The book has always stuck with me . so naturally it was a bit surreal when I, along with a small group of other journalists, got to visit the set of the movie adaptation of the story last summer when the production was filming in Los Angeles at the legendary Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio. Directed by Miguel Arteta (Cedar Rapids), the big screen version of the classic children.s book stars newcomer Ed Oxenbould as the 11-year-old Alexander Cooper, who »
