#Tbt: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher First Kissed on That '70s Show - See the Way They Were!

21 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even though Mila Kunis recently admitted that she and Ashton Kutcher started their relationship as a casual thing, he was always part of the actress' romantic history - Kutcher was her very first kiss! The actress has been quite nostalgic about her dating history with her husband, and it doesn't get more romantic than the very start. Back in 2001, the Bad Moms star revealed to People that her first kiss ever was a scripted one between her and Kutcher's characters on That '70s Show. To make matters worse, the two were practically strangers and she had a huge crush on the handsome model-turned-actor. »

19 July 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mila Kunis says the beginning of her relationship with husband Ashton Kutcher was pulled straight from the movies - their own movies, in fact. Kunis, 32, opened up about how her relationship with Kutcher turned romantic after years of being just friends while appearing on The Howard Stern Show, Tuesday. The actress said that while the two kept in touch after That '70s Show wrapped, things didn't change between them until they ran into each other at an awards show. "I see this guy and I see his back and he's really tall," Kunis says of seeing Kutcher, who had just split from Demi Moore. »

Friends With Benefits Scribes Team For New Rom-Com Worst Tinder Date Ever

19 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a deal believed to be in the six-figure ballpark, Warner Bros. has snapped up a new and indeed original rom-com that revolves around über-popular dating app, Tinder.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Keith Merryman and David A. Newman – best known for weaving a modern love story around Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake’s Friends With Benefits five years ago – will chronicle the Worst Tinder Date Ever, a meet-up between two budding singletons in Los Angeles that quickly devolves into a night to forget.

Infused with action elements, it is, in essence a “date that spirals into a night of one disaster after disaster — and, of course, they fall for one another in the process.” Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan are the pair on board to produce, while Niija Kuykendall and Julia Spiro will oversee production on behalf of Warner Bros..

‘Worst Tinder Date Ever’ Comedy Movie in the Works at Warner Bros.

18 July 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. is developing “Worst Tinder Date Ever” as a romantic comedy from Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, writers of “Think Like a Man” and “Friends with Benefits.”

Producers are Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan through their Warners-based production company Di Novi Pictures.

The Los Angeles-based story focuses on people who go on a Tinder date that generates several disasters, while the daters fall in love with each other.

Tinder is a location-based dating and social discovery service app that facilitates communication between mutually interested users. The app was launched in 2012, and by 2014 it was registering about one billion “swipes” per day, in which the user uses a swiping motion to choose the photos of other users.

Niija Kuykendall and Julia Spiro are overseeing for the studio. Merryman and Newman wrote the script  for  Lionsgate’s English-language remake of family comedy “Instructions Not Included,” the top-grossing Spanish-language film released in the U. »

Does Disney’s ‘Jungle Book’ Success Spell Trouble for Warner Bros. Version?

17 April 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the battle between the two “Jungle Book” movies, Disney appears to have the upper hand.

The studio just enjoyed a massive $103.6 million opening weekend for its live-action update of its 1967 animated classic and is already hard at work on a sequel that would bring back director Jon Favreau and focus on more of Mowgli’s adventures. Warner Bros. won’t counter with its own version of the Rudyard Kipling tales until 2018, 30 months after the Disney version took multiplexes by storm.

Warner Bros. has to be really concerned,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations. “It could spell disaster.”

The history of competing studio projects with similar story lines is nearly as old as the movie business itself. Think of how 1938’s “Jezebel” and 1939’s “Gone With the Wind” pitted two scheming Southern belles (Bette Davis and Vivian Leigh) against each other, or when 1964’s “Dr. Strangelove” and the »

Four Americans

19 February 2016 1:41 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

 Benjamin Crotty, Alexander Carver, and Daniel Schmidt—three filmmakers represented in the film series "Friends with Benefits," featured on Mubi this February and March—talk about some of their recurring interests, their education in film and the fine arts, and the ambiguous connection of their work to independent filmmaking and Hollywood cinema. This entry's title, Four Americans, is misleading, not only because the work of these four filmmakers is superficially related to this country, but because my interview with one of them (Gabriel Abrantes) was destroyed by bad technology. (Given the films' chronic jump-starting and programming and scrambling of desires, forbidden or otherwise, a better title might be Bad Technology, after all.)  »

"Friends with Benefits" on Mubi

18 February 2016 10:01 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Mubi has partnered with New York's Film Society of Lincoln center to bring online audiences part of their February series, "Friends with Benefits: An Anthology of Four New American Filmmakers," programmed by Dennis Lim and Dan Sullivan. In less than a decade of activity, the four friends and polymorphously promiscuous collaborators Gabriel Abrantes, Alexander Carver, Benjamin Crotty, and Daniel Schmidt have made some of the most ravishing and least classifiable films in recent memory—and established themselves as a school of filmmaking unlike any other. These uncompromising young visionaries share a penchant for provocation, a taste for transgression, and a host of strategies and obsessions all their own. At once lyrical and perverse, by turns hilarious and delirious, their films obliterate distinctions—between high- and low-brow, between sensual and cerebral, between art cinema and the avant-garde—while remaining sharply attuned to the byproducts of globalization and the fluctuations of post-internet pop culture. »

Sophisticated Engineering

10 February 2016 8:48 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Taprobana“These poets are so intelligent,” notes King Philip II of Spain toward the end of Gabriel AbrantesTaprobana (2014). “They put a sex scene in the end, and I forget I didn’t understand the rest. Such sophisticated engineering.” He’s talking about the Portuguese national epic Os Lusíadas, but he could as well be describing Abrantes’ eclectic body of work. The Lisbon-based filmmaker's steady output of avant-garde shorts holds together a chain of idiosyncratic filmmakers currently being feted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center's "Friends with Benefits" series. Since 2007, Abrantes has matched an affinity for abstruse, looping narrative with a bawdy sense of humor. Although his work frequently draws on sources like Manet or Aristophanes, it’s never hindered by the dictates of good taste. Ribald slapstick abounds, for example, in the Shakespeare-derived frolic Fratelli (2011), which he co-directed with Alexandre Melo. The characters are earthy, their jokes puerile, »

Daily | “Friends with Benefits”

3 February 2016 12:32 PM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Friends with Benefits: An Anthology of Four New American Filmmakers," a series opening on Friday and running through February 11 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York, highlights the work of Benjamin Crotty, Gabriel Abrantes, and Brooklyn residents Daniel Schmidt and Alexander Carver. Sarah Savolaara in Brooklyn Magazine: "Amid colonial, literary and scatological pursuits, the directors mine situational satire through deadpan dialogue, locked-off camerawork and anachronistic aesthetics to varying degrees of success. With a weeklong run as the series centerpiece, it is perhaps fitting that Crotty’s Fort Buchanan is the most effective and cohesive offering across the six programs." We're gathering all the coverage of this eclectic series in one place. » - David Hudson »
