Great Job, Internet!: Read This: Famous people have good stories about Matt Damon

19 July 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The man, the myth, the legend: Matthewian Johannes Damonocco. (Not his real name, but “Matt Damon” is so generic, we’re going to assume he changed it from something more intriguing.) There’s a constant Sisyphean struggle in Hollywood to be perceived as a fun, friendly, relatable person by the public. Given that 90 percent of actors are essentially sentient bags of need and insecurity, this can be a real challenge for some of the population. But when someone comes along who actually happens to be a legitimately cool human being, it stands out—it’s why Tom Hanks is one of the most universally beloved people on the planet, even after making Larry Crowne.

But Hanks’ mantle of “Nicest Guy In Hollywood” may have officially passed to Damon, as demonstrated by GQ’s new feature, “The Encyclopedia Of Matt Damon.” It’s a compendium of topics related to Matt ...

Tom Hanks to receive Rome fest honour

22 June 2016 5:19 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Oscar-winner Meryl Streep to also attend this year’s festival.

Oscar-winning actor Tom Tanks is to attend the 11th Rome Film Fesival (Oct 13-26), where he will receive the festival’s lifetime achievement award.

The star of Saving Private Ryan, Forrest Gump and last year’s Bridge of Spies will also be the subject of a 15-strong retrospective, including Hanks’ work as a director on That Thing You Do! (1996) and Larry Crowne (2011).

“I consider Tom Hanks to be one of the greatest actors of all time,” said the festival’s artistic director Antonio Monda.

“His extraordinary talent and profound humanity make him a classic but always contemporary actor: his films and his performances will never be dated.”

Fellow Oscar-winner Meryl Streep is also set to attend the festival where she will talk about the great Italian actresses who influenced her, including Silvana Mangano.

In addition, screenwriter and director David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross) will be the subject »

Wilmer Valderrama Joins Cast of CBS’ ‘NCIS’

16 June 2016 3:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The actor Formerly Known As Fez has a new mission. Wilmer Valderrama has joined the cast of “NCIS,” playing a NCIS field agent who’s been under deep cover for years – and has finally resurfaced.

“Many agents don’t know he’s still on the job or that he’s even alive,” according to CBS’ logline.  “Now, he’s back and his dedication to job and country has left him an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon.”

Valderrama helps fill a void left by departing “NCIS” castmember Michael Weatherly. The actor recently recurred on “Grey’s Anatomy” and also appeared on “Minority Report,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” and “Awake.” He first came to fame as “Fez” on Fox’s “That ’70s Show.”

The actor’s film credits include the indie dramas “To Whom It May Concern,” from French director Manu Boyer, and “The Adderall Diaries,” opposite Amber Heard and James Franco, »

'Captain America' #1 Again as the Marvel Cinematic Universe Tops $10 Billion Worldwide

15 May 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Disney occupies the top two spots at the box office for a second straight weekend as Captain America: Civil War and The Jungle Book had repeat performances at #1 and #2 respectively. The weekend's new wide releases, Money Monster and The Darkness, both performed above expectations and, in limited release, A24's The Lobster scored the best specialty opening of the year. Repeating at number one, Disney and Marvel's Captain America: Civil War brought in an estimated $72.5 million, enough to make it one of the top ten second weekend results of all-time. The 59% drop is on par with last year's Avengers: Age of Ultron and if it continues on this trajectory it will be looking at a domestic cume at or around $430 million. As of now, the domestic total is just shy of $300 million. Internationally the film continues the push toward becoming the year's first $1 billion earner worldwide as it brought in $84.2 million, »

From Pretty Woman to Cannes: Every Time Julia Roberts Famously Rocked the Barefoot Look

13 May 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Julia Roberts made headlines Friday when she walked the red carpet at the 2016 Cannes film festival barefoot. But if you're a fan of Roberts, you'll know it's not the first time the 48-year-old actress has rocked the barefoot look. Here are some of the most memorable times Roberts has chucked her footwear: On her auditionsLest you think that Julia Roberts' barefoot look is a style the superstar celebrity has adopted after finding fame, look to Joel Schumacher to set you straight. The director cast a virtually unknown Roberts in one of her first roles, 1990's Flatliners, and recounted Roberts' »

[Review] A Hologram For The King

25 April 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Even while it was in production, Tom Tykwer’s A Hologram for the King fostered a dual atmosphere of intrigue and questionability. After all, it was based off a lesser and somewhat inconsequential novel by Dave Eggers, whose own evocative prose styling was the sole reason to experience it on the page. It didn’t boost confidence that most of the book’s most compelling virtues were precisely the sort of nuances that get cut in a cinematic adaptation. On that proverbial other hand, Tykwer isn’t exactly a filmmaker who travels traditional Hollywood pathways when adapting challenging works; he found the odd and distinctive hearts of both David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas (which he co-directed with the Wachowskis) and Patrick Suskind’s Perfume. Perhaps then, it isn’t surprising that Hologram ends up somewhere in the middle of what we would expect; instead of trying to overcome its slight, »

Interviews: Flashback to Nia Vardalos, Lainie Kazan of ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2’

25 March 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The second biggest release of the 2016 Easter Weekend is “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.” The sequel to the 2002 mega-hit, the film rolls out the same weekend as a certain “Bats v Supes,” but is a bit quieter – and more Greek – than its weekend neighbors. In anticipation of the new “Wedding,” HollywoodChicago.com reruns a couple interviews from featured stars Nia Vardalos and Lainie Kazan.

Nia Vardalos, Actress & Screenwriter, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

The Nia Vardalos story began with the first “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” (2002). She was doing a one woman show version of the story, when Rita Wilson – wife of Tom Hanks, and a Greek actress herself – came backstage and told Vardalos that it would make a great film. With that, Vardalos gave Wilson the already completed screenplay, and the rest is film history. Since then, Nia Vardalos has written and starred in several films, »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 movie review: prearranged marriage

22 March 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

There is genuine if exasperated warmth here, but it is far less satisfyingly bound up into a cohesive story in this halfhearted retread of the original film. I’m “biast” (pro): liked the first film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

I recently rewatched the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which I enjoyed back in the day but had not seen since it was new in 2002. And it holds up well: it’s not perfect, and it’s a bit too heavy on the ethnic humor and sitcom schtick, but at its core there is a sweet story about a young woman coming out of her shell and finding herself in a way that her loving but overbearing family hadn’t allowed her to do before. That’s not the sort of story we often see in mainstream Hollywood films, »
