Crush of the week: Paul Feig

27 March 2015 10:59 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

‘He’s that rare thing in Hollywood, a man who seems to want to address the desperate gender imbalance’

If dictionaries had photographs to go with their definitions, next to the entry for “cult viewing” would be a tiny thumbnail shot of Paul Feig. He has directed episodes of high-school drama Freaks And Geeks (which he created and co-wrote), Arrested Development, Nurse Jackie, The Office and Weeds. On the big screen, he helmed the hugely successful 2011 comedy Bridesmaids and is directing an all-female reboot of Ghostbusters, due out next year. Inevitably, this has ruffled some feathers: Feig has been accused of “ruining people’s childhoods”. “Honestly,” he replied, “the only way I could ruin your childhood is if I got into a time machine and went back and made you an orphan.”

Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt": The Good, the Bad and the Dong

27 March 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tituss Burgess and Ellie Kemper in "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"Photo: Netflix Much has been said about the way Netflix is changing television. That may be true in terms of we watch TV, but their actual programming has not been the stuff of water cooler talk. Sure, they have their successes in "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black", but when was the last time you and your friends had a lengthy talk about "Marco Polo" or "Hemlock Grove"c Yeah, me neither. Even the return of "Arrested Development" didn't get people talking for much time. However, on March 5th, they put out a show that has entered the public consciousness, both for how funny it is and, of course, some controversy. That show is "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". I do not watch a lot of television. I keep up with "Game of Thrones", "Community", and "Louie". That's it. I »

Review: Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy strike gold again with genre spoof 'Spy'

22 March 2015 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - When "Bridesmaids" was in production, I visited the set, and it seemed to me that the collaborators working on the film were flying happily under the radar, no pressure on them beyond whatever pressure they put on themselves. When they brought the film to SXSW for a "work-in-progress" screening, it absolutely destroyed the audience, and Universal suddenly realized what a hit they had on their hands. Seeing Paul Feig onstage last Sunday at the Paramount to introduce his new film as a writer/director, I was struck by how far he's come even since I met him on the set of "Unaccompanied Minors." He's always been wildly funny and very smart, and if you haven't read his book, "Superstud," you are doing it wrong. It is a tremendous piece of writing. His work on "Freaks & Geeks" is also beautiful and nuanced. But with "Bridesmaids," he was launched into that rarefied A-list territory, »

The 14 Women Who Dominated the SXSW Film Festival

20 March 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The SXSW Film Festival has always been a launching pad for women in Hollywood — it’s where Lena Dunham premiered “Tiny Furniture” in 2010, and “Girls” in 2012; where 2011’s “Bridesmaids” debuted; and where Brie Larson became a star in 2013’s “Short Term 12.”

But this year’s SXSW had more girl power than ever before, from the female-driven comedies “Trainwreck” and “Spy,” to the work of breakout directors like Hannah Fidell (“6 Years”) and Shannon Sun-Higginson (“Gtfo: A Documentary About Women in Gaming”). As Hollywood still has a weak track record of putting women in front of and behind the camera — last year, women directors made only 4.6% of studio films — it’s still a question if emerging talent at festivals like SXSW and Sundance can cross over into the mainstream. “Since the industry is run by men, men have a tendency to want to make stories about themselves,” Sally Field told Variety. »

Chris Rock working on a new movie with his ‘Top Five’ cast returning

20 March 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

After his latest film, Top Five, was such a hit, it seems like Chris Rock may be in demand again. But not necessarily just in front of the screen, but also behind it.

Rock revealed on Thursday in an interview with Complex UK that he and producer Scott Rudin are currently working on a new project that he hopes to have ready soon. According to Rock, he meets with producer Scott Rudin “every week now going over this next movie,” and that Rudin wants him “to work at a faster pace.”

He added that Rudin also would like to see most of his cast from Top Five return, singling out Leslie Jones and Tracy Morgan as two he would like to see more of. “Some people shine in Top Five. You might want to see a little more of Leslie Jones or Tracy [Morgan], once he gets better. I think Jerry Seinfeld »

Peanuts Is Not Anything Like Space Jam, In Case You Were Wondering

20 March 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the event that you were worried about Paul Feig ruining another part of your childhood (and we.re not talking about his Ghostbusters reboot), have no fear. The Bridesmaids helmer is producing The Peanuts Movie for director Steve Martino, and he assures us that we won.t be having a repeat of Space Jam. In other words, it won.t be a completely modernized interpretation.  Speaking with Collider at SXSW in promotion of his latest film with Melissa McCarthy, Spy, Feig spoke a bit about what we can expect from The Peanuts Movie. It.s very sweet. It.s totally a G-rated movie, because you can.t get edgy with Charlie Brown. That was the Schulz family.s fear, that me and Fox everybody were gonna come in and hip it up and cast Justin Bieber as Charlie Brown and have it like Space Jam or something. All of »

Melissa McCarthy ‘Cannot Be More Excited’ For Ghostbusters

19 March 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the web has put forward its divisive opinions on Sony’s upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, its director, Paul Feig has opted to playfully ignore detractors and focus on bringing a new lease of life to the franchise.

As we all know by now, four female ‘busters are set to lead the series into a new era commandeered by long-time Feig cohort, Melissa McCarthy. Since 2011’s Bridesmaids, the director and star reunited for 2013’s buddy cop comedy The Heat and this summer’s critical smash Spy. On their fourth collaboration, the pair are set for yet another reunion. This time, it will be with BridesmaidsKristen Wiig, who along with Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will be strapping on a proton pack for the spooky update. And, as expected, McCarthy is very excited about it.

Here’s what the actress told Total Film about the flick:

"Peanuts" Film To Be Very Faithful

19 March 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though filmmaker Paul Feig is best known for female-centric R-rated comedies like "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat," he's also onboard as producer of the 3D CGI animated feature film adaptation of Charles M. Schulz's beloved "Peanuts" comic at 20th Century Fox.

One fear fans have had about the film is if the classic cartoon characters would undergo a "modern makeover" to cater to contemporary audiences more ala "The Smurfs" or films like "Space Jam". Speaking with Collider at SXSW, Feig says those fans have no need to fear:

"It's very sweet. It's totally a G-rated movie, because you can't get edgy with Charlie Brown. That was the Schulz family's fear, that me and Fox everybody were gonna come in and hip it up and cast Justin Bieber as Charlie Brown and have it like Space Jam or something. All of us were like, 'No.' We cast kids that sound »

Rebel-ling against the norm! Not only does Rebel Wilson look stunning on the April cover of Elle Australia, but the Pitch Perfect 2 star, 29, also had no problem getting candid about her Hollywood lifestyle.  Though she’s known for her comedic timing and her career-starting role in 2011’s Bridesmaids, the Aussie actress admitted she isn’t always cracking jokes.  “Most people who know me know I’m not switched on all the time,” she told the mag. “I don’t like to be like that in real life, because it’s draining.

Spy Review [SXSW 2015]

18 March 2015 4:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Melissa McCarthy may be America’s comedic sweetheart, but her filmography has been extremely hit-or-miss as of late. Where The Heat is a riotous take on hilarious buddy-cop antics with a female-driven spin, Tammy’s down-on-her-luck optimism barely musters a single chuckle-worthy joke throughout the entire film. But when McCarthy and filmmaker Paul Feig work together (The Heat/Bridesmaids), something magical always seems to happen, and in that same fashion, Spy ends up being another winning combination of Feig’s jovial cinematics and McCarthy’s sweetly bullish comedic stylings. Feig’s screenplay is smarter than the average spoof, McCarthy doesn’t overpower audiences, and a wonderful supporting cast ensures that every character scores a few laughs while kicking some terrorist ass along the way.

The film follows Susan Cooper (McCarthy), a desk-chained overseer who has an obvious crush on her assigned field agent, Bradley Fine (Jude Law). But when her partner’s identity is compromised, »

'Peanuts Movie' Is Not Hip & Edgy Promises Producer Paul Feig

18 March 2015 4:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Charles M. Schulz's beloved Peanuts comic strip characters are finally coming to life on the big screen later this year with The Peanuts Movie, a 3D CGI animated comedy from 20th Century Fox, director Steve Martino and producer Paul Feig, who is best known for his edgy comedies such as Bridesmaids and the upcoming Spy, in theaters May 22. There were several longtime Peanuts fans who were worried about a big-budget 3D animated film, and that these beloved characters might be reconceived to cater to modern-day audiences. While doing press for Spy at SXSW, Paul Feig revealed that the movie is "very sweet," confirming that it will be a G-rated movie, casting aside fear that it will be tonally comparable to a movie like Space Jam.

Character Posters Revealed For Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham & Jude Law In ‘Spy’

18 March 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I just caught up with the Red Band trailer for Spy, which I’ve also included below for you, and it’s looking pretty good. Thankfully, the marvellous McCarthy also appears to be back on form when it’s released on 5th June for movie goers in the UK.

Directed by BridesmaidsPaul Feig, Melissa McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, who’s an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

It’s obviously all a little ridicolous but what else would we expect? There’s a top cast that includes the three below alongside Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Miranda Hart. »

Insidious 3: The darkest chapter goes back to the beginning in new trailer and poster

17 March 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Instead of astral plane travelling with Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids, X-Men: First Class) and Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring), Insidious: Chapter 3 is set before the haunting of the Lambert family, and the focus is on a new family.

In the prequel’s trailer, the new “final girl,” Quinn (Stephanie Scott), encounters some strange rumblings in her house after she’s bedridden with a broken leg. Dermott Mulroney (My Best Friend’s Wedding) shows up as “Dad,” and we refuse to acknowledge that his character has a real name. He’s super grumpy that a teenaged boy is into his daughter, and everyone is adorably oblivious to the horrible terrors that await them.

It all seems pretty standard until two-thirds of the way through the trailer, where things get ridiculously terrifying with “Tiptoe through the Tulips,” a song that keeps popping up throughout the Insidious franchise.

SXSW Film: 5 Best Moments From the Start of the Fest

17 March 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s SXSW Film looked as star-studded as the Oscars (or at least the MTV Movie Awards), with one of the festival’s most commercial movie lineups ever. Capping the busy weekend was a rare triple feature: the premieres of “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and “Furious 7.” And a batch of deals closed in Austin for smaller movies — including the Alex Gibney doc “Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine” (which went to Magnolia Pictures), the relationship drama “6 Years” (which landed at Netflix) and the Rupert Grint film “Moonwalkers“ (Alchemy). Here are five of the top moments from the first few days.

1) Amy Schumer Is the Next Big Thing

Amy Schumer proved that she really is a movie star in her first movie, Judd Apatow comedy “Trainwreck.” She plays a journalist (also named Amy) who drifts through a series of unfortunate one-night stands until she meets a charming doctor (Bill Hader »

Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham And Jude Law Land Spy Posters

17 March 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following its worldwide premiere at SXSW this weekend, a quartet of UK posters for Spy have debuted online. Each one sheet dedicates its space to one of the three main characters heading up Paul Feig’s next comedy; Melissa McCarthy as the unassuming Susan Cooper, Jude Law as her partner Bradley Fine, and Jason Statham as fellow agent Rick Ford.

Spy marks the reunion of Bridesmaids‘ and The Heat‘s director-star combo, with Feig and McCarthy making jabs at the espionage genre for their third collaboration. The leading lady plays Cooper, a skilled-yet-shy office worker for the CIA, who is called up to serve her country when a field mission is flubbed. With the agency requiring an unknown face and persona, Cooper is thrust into the limelight as their only hope in an international arms blunder.

Early word on the movie has thus far been incredibly positive. Amping up audiences »

The ten films most likely to lead the 2015 box office

17 March 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As much as I clearly obsess myself with trying to accurately predict the Oscars, I also have a slight fascination with attempting to figure out which film will wind up as the most successful at the box office, even if the actual numbers are incredibly difficult to pinpoint. Sadly, most of the time the movies in contention for that crown are iffy at best in terms of quality, but his year might very well be different. 2015 offers up a number of potentially very strong flicks that will vie to be number one at the box office, including a couple that might actually contend for the all time crown. That’s pretty rare (though with the numbers we see year in and year out, it’s slowly getting less and less rare), making the next nine months or so possibly very interesting… As a quick refresher, this was what the top »
