‘Get Out’ Review: Jordan Peele’s Directorial Debut Is A Horror Movie Unafraid To Call Out Racist Bullshit — Sundance 2017

33 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s never a good sign when Catherine Keener is the scariest thing in your horror movie, but if “Get Out” isn’t half as scary as the ideas that inspired it, Jordan Peele’s directorial debut is almost certain to be the boldest — and most important — studio genre release of the year. What it lacks in fear, it nearly makes up for in fearlessness.

When Hollywood wants to talk about race, it’s usually an inspirational film, set at some point in the past, that sparks discussion. It doesn’t matter if that setting is the 19th century, the civil rights movement, or even sometime last week; it’s any time that isn’t right this moment. Stories of injustice are always more comfortable being watched over your shoulder, so these films bring a wedge of distance so that (white) audiences don’t feel implicated in the on-screen suffering. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Get Out’

37 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” meets “The Stepford Wives” as a white girl brings her black boyfriend home to meet her parents, whose superficially warm welcome masks an unthinkably dark secret, in “Get Out.” Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless — which is not at all the same thing as scareless. In fact, from the steady joy-buzzer thrills to its terrifying notion of a new way that white people have found to perpetuate the peculiar institution of slavery, “Get Out” delivers plenty to frighten and enrage audiences. But it’s the fact that Peele doesn’t pull a single one of his punches that makes his Blumhouse-backed debut a must-see event.

First teased in a secret midnight screening at the Sundance Film Festival, “Get Out” represents a searing political statement wrapped in the guise of »

Can Sundance Love Save Sitcom ‘Downward Dog’ From Summer

19 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Proof that the line between movies and TV continues to blur comes from  the strong response to yesterday’s Sundance screening of four episodes of the ABC sitcom Downward Dog. Now, the question is, can Sundance prove as effective a launch pad that changes the fortunes of a TV show the way it has for features films like Manchester By The Sea and so many others?  Downward Dog is best described as Girls, if Lena Dunham had an adoring talking dog.

Lily Collins Reveals Former Eating Disorder While Promoting ‘To The Bone’ at Sundance (Watch)

21 January 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lily Collins stars as a young woman battling anorexia in the indie film “To The Bone,” and the actress has a personal connection to the subject matter.

Collins revealed on Saturday at Variety’s studio at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, that she formerly battled an eating disorder.

“This movie was really important to me to be a part of because, as a teenager, I suffered from eating disorders,” Collins said.

“This is the first time I’m talking about it. This is my moment of talking about it,” Collins shared. “It’s important. It’s really important. It’s something that a lot of young women go through and there’s no shame in it, and this movie is about that — it’s about embracing your past and about realizing it’s something that doesn’t define who you are, but it’s about your experiences, »

21 January 2017 12:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Hundreds of thousands of people across the country gathered together on Saturday to march for women's rights.

Just one day after Donald Trump was sworn into office as the 45th President of the United States, Americans walked together in protest at Women's Marches in various cities to "stand together in solidarity" and defend the protection of "our rights, our safety, our health and our families."

Watch: President Obama Thanks Americans in Parting Letter: 'You Have Made Me a Better Man'

"We have people power and we will use it," women's rights activist, Gloria Steinem, told the crowd at the Women's March on Washington, which The New York Times reported is expected to be the largest inauguration-related protest in U.S. history. "Thank you for understanding that sometimes we have to put our bodies where our beliefs are. Sometimes pressing send is not enough."

"This is the upside of the downside," she continued »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Landline’

20 January 2017 6:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When a director crafts a youth comedy that’s also a pop-culture period piece, like “Everybody Wants Some!!” or “Twentieth Century Women,” it’s important for the audience to feel they know why — to know what it is about that moment that ignited the filmmaker’s imagination, beyond his or her desire to sprinkle a movie with the mix-tape nuggets, hipster TV choices, and hairstyles of their youth. “Landline,” the pleasingly spiky and confident second feature directed and co-written by Gillian Robespierre (“Obvious Child”), is set in Manhattan in the long-ago, far-away, now-exotic year of 1995, and it’s fun to hook into the movie’s remember-this? vibe — the references to slam poetry and Lorena Bobbitt and eyebrow rings and Must-See TV, to renting “Curly Sue” at Blockbuster (and actually thinking it’s funny), to Hillary Clinton as a fashion role model, to second-hand CD stores with world-music listening stations.

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Little Hours’

20 January 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What for American satirist Jeff Baena (“Life After Beth,” “Joshy”) must have felt like a radically innovative idea — take a medieval piece of literature, such as Giovanni Boccaccio’s “The Decameron,” and recreate it with an irreverent modern sensibility — is in fact a strategy that Euro auteurs have been doing for decades. Not that a somewhat overinflated sense of novelty makes Baena’s twisted nuns-gone-wild comedy “The Little Hours” any less entertaining.

Only the most ascetic of filmmakers sets out to create a starchy period piece about naïve maidens pining away in airless old castles. The trouble is that even when such racy directors as Benoit Jacquot and Catherine Breillat attempt to modernize such material, between the subtitles and cultural differences, too much is lost in translation. “The Little Hours” is, then, a medieval convent comedy for the megaplex crowd, one that dispenses with the notion of nuns as prim-and-proper »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Incredible Jessica James’

20 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Some people are born to be movie stars, and “The Incredible Jessica James” successfully makes that case for leading lady Jessica Williams. Best known as a former correspondent for “The Daily Show,” the assertive actress commands every frame of a vehicle that feels built to transport her to even bigger and better things to come. It’s the sort of ingratiating crowdpleaser that would’ve sparked a modest bidding war at past Sundance festivals. But even in a less frenzied atmosphere, the film (which serves as this year’s closing night selection, yet screened for press on day one) should be able to land a distributor savvy enough to maximize its commercial appeal.

It almost feels like a throwback to see a breakout star headline a modest relationship comedy for the indie film crowd at a time when many of Williams’ peers are making their mark on the more expansive canvas of television. »

Every Bizarre, Twisted, F*cked-Up Thing That Happens in M. Night Shyamalan's Split

19 January 2017 8:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

M. Night Shyamalan first gained fame with The Sixth Sense, thanks to its brilliant, original twist ending. Since then, the director has been chasing the ever-elusive high of a similarly successful and mind-blowing surprise, which he's attempted in his successive horror and sci-fi films like The Village, Signs, and Unbreakable. Although those failed to deliver the same impact, his 2015 found-footage flick The Visit seemed to herald a return to form for Shyamalan with its simple story and fantastic, shocking conclusion. With that in mind, the writer-director's latest entry into the horror genre, Split, looked like it might be a twist-filled slam dunk at the box office. Although the film suffers from a few bloated, meandering storylines and the ending will leave some rolling their eyes, there are enough creepy, terrifying moments (and incredible performances) scattered throughout Split that will no doubt make it a notable notch on Shyamalan's belt of accomplishments. »

The Updated Price Tag for Will & Grace’s New York Apartment Is Shocking

19 January 2017 1:53 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

TV’s take on New York City living is notoriously too good to be true. Monica and Rachel’s palatial apartment on Friends and Carrie Bradshaw’s gorgeous uptown spread are some of the most notorious offenders. But multiply that already unrealistic apartment by the inflation rates during a decade or two off the air, and you’re looking at a truly shocking rent check.

So when NBC announced on Wednesday that they’ll be ordering a 10-episode revival of Will & Grace, the real estate experts at Trulia went to work figuring out just what it would cost for Debra Messing »
