Naomi Watts Steps Out in Support of Ex Liev Schreiber at Opening of His Broadway Play Les Liaisons Dangereuses

31 October 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

They may no longer be a couple, but Liev Schreiber still has a big fan in Naomi Watts.

A month after the two announced their split, the actress attended the opening night of Schreiber’s eagerly anticipated new Broadway play Les Liaisons Dangereuses on Sunday.

Watts, 48, kept her look understated and monochromatic for the evening, walking the red carpet in a black skirt and coat and a patterned white shirt.

Schreiber, 49, took to Instagram shortly before the show, flashing a thumbs-up along with the caption “Happy Opening Night to this extraordinary company! @liaisonsbway #lesliaisonsdangereuses.”

Glenn Close is "The Wife"

20 October 2016 8:28 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Murtada

Close at the Tonys in June

Glenn Close is not going to be ignored. Anymore. Six years after Albert Nobbs she has signed on for a new part. It’s not a supporting authority figure (Guardians of the Galaxy) or an uncredited cameo (Warcraft) -she’s playing the title character! The film is The Wife in which Close will play Joan, a woman who gave up her own literary ambitions to support her successful novelist husband. On the eve of him receiving the Nobel Prize for literature she has a crisis of faith in him and in their marriage and starts re-examining her choices.

The film was first announced last February but it seems that whatever kinks they had then, have been smoothed out and shooting stars in a couple of weeks. The film is helmed by Swedish director Björn Runge and adapted by Jane Anderson (Olive Kitteridge) from Meg Wolitzer’s novel. »

Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Slater Confirmed as Stars of ‘The Wife’

19 October 2016 10:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce and Christian Slater have been confirmed as the stars of “The Wife,” which starts principal photography on Oct. 31.

Other members of the cast include Annie Starke (“Bastards,” “Albert Nobbs”), Max Irons (“Woman in Gold, “Terminal”) and Harry Lloyd (“Anthropoid,” “The Theory of Everything,” “The Iron Lady”).

“‘The Wife,’ with its wise and provocative tone, is a story built around a moment of revelation for Joan Castleman (Close), who is married to one of those men (Pryce) who own the world… and who has no idea how to take care of himself or anyone else,” according to a statement. “He is also one of America’s pre-eminent novelists, about to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature; and the flawlessly gracious Joan, who has spent 40 years ignoring her own literary talents to fan the flames of his career, has finally decided to stop.

Do the Oscars Have a Problem With Movies About Older Women?

Managing Editor

The Oscars is meant to honor the best in film each and every year — but how often are movies about and feature women of a certain age get the recognition they rightly deserve?

With movies like 20th Century Women, starring Annette Bening (now 58), and Florence Foster Jenkins, starring Meryl Streep (now 67), standing a chance at snagging best picture nominations this year — though best actress nominations are more likely for both — let’s take a look back at how often stories with a spotlight on older females are up for the top prize in Hollywood.

Since the year 2000, there have just been a handful of films that meet the requirements: having featuring an actress that is 50+ in a leading role, having allowed her to actually play the age she actually is, and having been up for best picture. »

The First Trailer For New Comedy Bastards Arrives

16 September 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Please enable Javascript to watch this video

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson are men in search of answers in the new trailer for the upcoming comedy film, Bastards. The project is the directorial debut of The Hangover cinematographer Lawrence Sher, and is the first feature-length script from Justin Malen (Trophy Wife) to reach the big screen. With high stakes and hijinks, the movie sets itself as some comedic relief for the new year, with its post-Christmas release window.

The winning elements of this trailer include the way in which the collection of older men approached by Peter and Kyle Reynolds recall their mother (Glenn Close). These wistful memories, dripping with lust, serve to teach these young siblings a valuable lesson – that the image they hold of their mother is not the only version of her that ever existed.

While it is doubtful that Bastards will emerge as ‘Comedy Of The »

Owen Wilson and Ed Helms Unite as Brothers in Bastards Trailer

15 September 2016 6:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two brothers go on a quest to find the father they always thought was dead in the first trailer for Bastards, arriving in theaters January 27, 2017. Ed Helms (The Hangover films) and Owen Wilson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Zoolander 2) star in Alcon Entertainment's comedy Bastards, under the direction of Lawrence Sher. The film marks the directorial debut of the veteran cinematographer, who had worked on The Hangover trilogy and, most recently, War Dogs, starring Miles Teller and Jonah Hill.

Helms and Wilson play Peter and Kyle Reynolds, two brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father, learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know. This R-rated comedy was originally in development at Paramount Pictures five years ago, before it shifted over to Warner Bros., »

Ascap Workshop Spotlights Future Film Composers

24 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Are these the faces of the future of film scoring?

Earlier this month, 12 young composers each got the chance to stand on the 20th Century Fox scoring stage, conducting a 65-piece orchestra playing their own music. It was the culmination of their participation in the Ascap Film Scoring Workshop, a four-week immersion into the high-pressure, high-profile world of movie music.

As participant John Carey put it: “It was like getting to jump ahead 20 or 30 years in your career for a night, to a mock scenario where you would be scoring a major blockbuster film. Imagine being a quarterback in high school and suddenly getting to be in the NFL for a day; it’s just surreal.

“And after stepping off the podium my first thought was, ‘I have to figure out how to come back here and do this again.’”

Carey was one of four Americans chosen from among 300 applicants for this year’s program. »

The first installment, which premiered on June 1, is available on Facebook, YouTube and VidMe. The latest episode was released today. Already, the series has gained significant momentum, with over two million views to date.

Win A Prizepack And Free Passes To The Advance Screening of Me Before You In St. Louis

24 May 2016 12:58 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Live Boldly.

“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible,” says Will Traynor in Me Before You. His advice is directed at his effervescent yet seemingly settling caregiver Louisa “Lou” Clark, 26, who claims to be happy in the quaint English town in which they both grew up. But Will, only 31 himself, knows whereof he speaks…perhaps better than most.

“At its most basic, this is a story about the power of love and how it transforms you,” says director Thea Sharrock. “These are two characters who, but for their very different and difficult circumstances, should never have met…but here they are. And that’s where the fairytale begins.”

Based on the critically acclaimed, bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes, New Line Cinema’s and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ Me Before You stars Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”) and Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games »

‘Last Days in the Desert’ Review: Ewan McGregor Plays Jesus and Satan in Too-Polite Bible Tale

12 May 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

According to the New Testament, Jesus was led into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan for 40 days. During that time of fasting and prayer, Jesus sought the presence of God and sparred with the Prince of Darkness as preparation for ministry and an eventual sacrificial mission. Details related to this story, though significant — Jesus rebukes the Devil and makes it through, unscathed — are also fairly sparse. It’s that empty, speculative space that entices writer-director Rodrigo Garcia (“Nine Lives,” “Albert Nobbs’) to invent a new obstacle for Jesus (Ewan McGregor, called “Yeshua” here) in “Last Days in »

Just By Looking At It: Garcia’s Hollowed Jesus Flick

At one time an adept purveyor of what could loosely be termed the modernized ‘women’s picture’ with expert titles like Things You Can Tell Just By Looking at Her (2000), Nine Lives (2005) and Mother and Child (2009), director Rodrigo Garcia has gone off into more provocative territory following the stilted bauble, Albert Nobbs (2011).
