YouTube CEOSusan Wojcicki’s 2016 VidCon keynote delivered a simple message: If you’ve felt marginalized and seek community, come to us.

“YouTube gives people of any race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or interest a place to come together and a place to belong,” she said, emphasizing the importance of community to YouTube’s success. “When people talk about community, especially when they’re here at VidCon, the first thing they often mention are the screaming fans… But what I hope you take away when you visit VidCon isn’t just the enthusiasm, it’s the sense of belonging that exists here.”

To present YouTube’s programming slate, Wojcicki yielded the stage to Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s Global Head of Original Content, who outlined the four major projects upcoming from YouTube Red, the company’s original content subscription service, and eight new series in development.

23 June 2016 5:31 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Anna Kendrick and James Corden couldn’t disappoint us even if they tried.

The Pitch Perfect star joined the equally virtuosic Late Late Show host on Wednesday for “Soundtrack to a Love Story,” a four-minute musical that charted a fictitious romance between the melodic duo from meet-cute to “I do’s.”

While hits by The Weeknd, Boyz II Men and Bruno Mars perfectly scored the twosome’s happiest days, they eventually turned to the powerful lyricism of Adele (aka the queen of heartbreak songs) to express their feelings amid a crumbling marriage. »

Elizabeth Banks Was Considered “Too Old” For Mary-Jane Role In 2002’s Spider-Man

22 June 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before appearing as Betty Brant in Sam Raimi’s trilogy, Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks has revealed that she originally auditioned for the Mary-Jane role in Spider-Man, only to be turned down because she was considered “too old” for the part.

That’s according to Banks herself, who told Glamour magazine that despite being 28 at the time – making her only 16 months older than lead star Tobey Maguire – it was ultimately Kirsten Dunst that landed the coveted role of Mary-Jane Watson across Raimi’s superhero series.

“I screen-tested for the role of Mary-Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movie, opposite Tobey Maguire … Tobey and I are basically the same age and I was told I was too old to play her. I’m like, ‘Oh, Ok, that’s what I’ve signed up for’.”

Beyond the world of costumed heroes, Elizabeth Banks has gone on to become one »

Clip and images from season 3 of All Hail King Julien

15 June 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With season three of DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien set to premiere on Netflix this Friday (June 17th), we’ve got a batch of images from the show, along with a clip that sees Princess Julienne (Angelica Huston) and Prince Barty (John Michael Higgins), King Julien’s dramatic and needy parents, arriving for unannounced for a royal visit. Check them out here…

This season, alongside Danny Jacobs’ Emmy®-winning comedic work as King Julien, All Hail King Julien has attracted accomplished talent with A-level guest stars including Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family, The Royal Tenenbaums), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Arrested Development), and John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect, Yes Man).

You might be familiar with the Emmy®-winning show, but did you know that All Hail King Julien isn’t just a tropical adventure for children? In fact, the show has become a mecca of pop culture phenomena and not-so-subtle adult humor, bringing the jungle of Madagascar closer to modern society than you might think. With skewering parallels to our addictive consumption of coffee and ridiculous “high fashion” trends, biting representations of class and beauty standards, and emotional characters that challenge stereotypical gender roles, All Hail King Julien produces witty observations that are meant for modern-day thinkers of all ages.

All Hail King Julien season 3 lands on Netflix on Friday, June 17th.

Female-Led Ocean’s Eleven Reboot Pitched As A “Continuation” Of Original Trilogy

15 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More than a decade ago, Steven Soderbergh assembled an enviable lineup of Hollywood A-listers for Ocean’s Eleven, a rip-roaring and damn entertaining crime caper that went on to inspire two sequels of (arguably) diminishing returns.

Fast forward to 2016 and, with the project currently simmering in pre-production, The Hunger Games director Gary Ross has been tasked with capturing lightning in a bottle once again – and truth be told, he’s doing pretty well so far. Since first enlisting Sandra Bullock as the de facto lead, the director’s high-profile re-do has cast Thor: Ragnarok star Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and, more recently, Elizabeth Banks of Pitch Perfect fame.

It makes for quite the ensemble already, and in anticipation of Free State of Jones marching into theaters later this year, Ross sat down to discuss his pitch for the all-female Ocean’s Eleven, including how he views it as a continuation of Soderbergh’s stylish original trilogy.

I think it’s a pretty similar tone. You know, Steven Soderbergh and I are incredibly close friends, and we would not have done this if we weren’t. I don’t think he would’ve wanted anyone to do it if we weren’t. This is very much an extension and a continuation. He’s a producer on the movie. In one way or another, this has been a 20-year conversation between Steven and I, collaborating in ways the whole world doesn’t know about: I helped him on the previous Ocean’s Eleven films; he shot second unit on The Hunger Games; I’ve done Adr lines for him; and he reads all my scripts.

It’s a very long, ongoing collaboration. This, I think, is a very seamless process. We’re different filmmakers, obviously, so there will be those differences, but one of the things I’m drawn to is the amazing tone Steven was able to create, and we discuss that a lot. We discuss the cinema a lot, the shooting style, the rhythm, the editing style, and the music. We discuss it all. I’m in no way trying to reinvent the tone, and I’m thrilled and honored to be extending it. It’s really fun to work with.

Still in the early stages of pre-production and bearing the codename Ocean’s Ocho, Gary Ross’ reimagining of Ocean’s Eleven still has a ways to go before stepping before the cameras at Warner Bros. Free State of Jones, meanwhile, hits theaters on June 24. »

Will "Loving" Help June 12th Become a Holiday?

12 June 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1916 Disaster epic super producer Irwin Allen is born. (More on him this afternoon)

1919 Stage legend Uta Hagen is born. Though she only ever makes three movies, she originates Tony winning roles on stage that later win Oscars for movie stars (The Country Girl and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?). Also the co-author of "Respect for Acting" and a reknowned acting teacher with 70s legends Pacino & De Niro as students

1928 Oscar winning composer Richard M Sherman (of Sherman Brothers fame) is born. Jason Schwartzman plays him in Saving Mr Banks (2013) about the making of Mary Poppins (1964)

1942 Anne Frank receives a diary for her 13th birthday. She does not live much longer during the horrific events of The Holocaust but The Diary of Anne Frank becomes a key text of the 20th century. The George Stevens film adaptation (of the Pulitzer winning play of the same name by the screenwriters) released in 1959 receives 8 nominations including Best Picture and takes home three Oscars

1946 Oscar-nominated costume designer Maurizio Millenotti is born in Italy. Credits include: Otello, Hamlet (1990 version), Malèna, The Passion of the Christ and Federico Fellini's And the Ship Sails On.

1962 Three bank robbers escape from Alcatraz. The story becomes the Clint Eastwood picture Escape From Alcatraz (1979)

← 1967 The Supreme Court strikes down anti-miscenegation laws banning interracial marriage in the Loving v Virginia case. This year's Oscar hopeful Loving (2016), starring Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton tells the Loving story. There's also a movement to make June 12th, "Loving Day," an official Us holiday for celebrating multiracial families. Sadly the movie isn't opening today for this anniversary so we'll have to wait months to see it. Perhaps the 50th anniversary next year, after the story is more widely known with the movie, will help add momentum. 

1985 Dave Franco is born 

1992 Housesitter with Steve Martin, Goldie Hawn and Dana Delany hits theaters 

2010 Slow burning hit "Bulletproof" peaks on the Us charts nearly a year after its release. Two years later Beca deploys it to fuck up Aubrey's stale act in Pitch Perfect (2012)

You're Not Alone: Brittany Snow Can't Get a Ticket to Hamilton Either

Turns out, starring in a number of movie musicals yourself still isn't enough to score a ticket to Broadway smash Hamilton. Just like the rest of the musical-going population, Brittany Snow, the star of films like Pitch Perfect and Hairspray, who is partnering with Coppertone, tried to get a ticket to Hamilton on a recent trip to N.Y.C. But her musical pedigree didn't give her a leg up when it came to scoring tickets to the hottest show in town (or perhaps, the world!)

The Boss movie review: hooray for girl power (boo for nowhere near enough)

9 June 2016 5:51 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Plays with hierarchies and rivalries of women’s lives that often aren’t seen onscreen, and embraces women as powerful. But it’s just not very funny about it. I’m “biast” (pro): really like Melissa McCarthy

I’m “biast” (con): …but often don’t like her material

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

It’s mostly more of the same cold, bitter stew that passes for comedy in Hollywood: lots of slapstick and grossout that theoretically appeals only to children, and lots of crudity and viciousness that is allegedly “adult” humor, which leaves you wondering just who the heck is supposed to be the audience for this. And The Boss also suffers from the genre’s typical unconvincing mix of the silly and the sentimental: it is extraordinarily difficult to pull off a shift in tone from Looney Tunes to Frank Capra, and it »

Girlboss, the latest original series setting up shop at Netflix, has zeroed in on its leading lady: Tomorrowland star Britt Robertson.
