Aziz Ansari Pays the Price for Not Loving ‘La La Land’ on ‘Saturday Night Live’ — Watch

27 minutes ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Aziz Ansari hosted last night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live,” and among other important topics touched on in both his monologue and skits — like, say, the inauguration of Donald Trump — was “La La Land.” Set up as an interrogation between Ansari’s character and two cops (Cecily Strong and Beck Bennett), the bit puts the “Master of None” star in the hot seat. Watch below.

Shyamalan's 'Split' Impresses with $40 Million Debut as 'Rogue One' Tops $1 Billion Worldwide

1 hour ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

M. Night Shyamalan has delivered a second hit in a row as his latest film, Split, is estimated to have delivered a top five January opening, leading the weekend charge with a three-day opening four times as big as its reported $10 million budget. Meanwhile, Paramount's xXx: The Return of Xander Cage delivered as expected while the Weinstein's The Founder scored a top ten finish. Additionally, Disney's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has become the 28th film to top $1 billion worldwide. With an estimated $40.18 million, Split is currently the fourth largest January opening of all-time, just ahead of 2008's Cloverfield, which debuted with $40 million and went on to gross $80 million domestically. This is also a dramatic improvement over Shyamalan's well-received 2015 thriller The Visit, which opened with $25.4 million and went on to gross over $65 million. Should Split be able to pull off a 2.5x multiplier we'd be looking at Shyamalan's first »

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ Dominates U.S. Box Office With $40.2 Million

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split” has turned into a horror hit with a surprisingly strong $40.2 million in its opening weekend at 3,038 North American locations.

Split,” starring James McAvoy as a man with 24 different personalities, performed far above recent expectations for Universal and Blumhouse. It easily topped the 2015 launch of Shyamalan’s found-footage horror movie “The Visit,” which scored an opening weekend of $25.4 million.

Split” doubled Vin Diesel’s launch of “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” which is heading for a second-place finish for Paramount with $20 million at 3,651 sites — in line with recent forecasts. Fox’s historical drama “Hidden Figures” maintained its impressive performance in third with $16.3 million at 3,416 theaters for a domestic total of $84.2 million.

Michael Keaton’s biopic “The Founder” showed little traction for the Weinstein Company with a modest $3.8 million weekend at 1,115 locations.

Shyamalan produced and directed “Split” from his own script in which McAvoy’s multiple characters »

Aziz Ansari on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

3 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A post-inauguration installment without Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump? That seemed almost inconceivable, given this past week's events. But that was the only negative surprise on a bounce-back episode for Saturday Night Live, which deployed host Aziz Ansari to great use throughout the evening. There were no instantly classic sketches, but there were no straight-up disasters anywhere to be seen.

That sounds like damning the show with faint praise, but there were a lot of sketches tonight, so the overall quality is nothing to sneeze at. Some sketches barely lasted two minutes, »

Personal Ballot: Best Scores, Sounds, Songs...

4 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Though my ears aren't as fine tuned as my eyes when it comes to the cinema, I take pleasure freely from every craft. The best films are the ones that try to engage all senses. (Well, not smell. They tried that with Smell-o-Vision and it didn't work out so well.) 

So here are my choices for Best Original Score, Best Sound Mixing and Editing, Best Original Song and a fifth category that's kind of "off-Oscar." The Film Bitch Awards have always had a Best Adapted / Combination / Song Score category for films where the original score is only part of the defining musical sensation and the rest comes from pre-existing material or songs that are woven into the sound mix. Films honored include in these various aural categories include The Handmaiden, Arrival, Moonlight, Lion, Jackie, La La Land, Sully, The Witch, Doctor Strange, Sing Street and more. Which movies did you love listening to this year? »

SNL: Watch Aziz Ansari's Powerful Donald Trump Monologue and More

4 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Master of None‘s Aziz Ansari made his Saturday Night Live hosting debut this weekend, presiding over the first episode since Donald Trump was officially sworn in as president of the United States.

The Parks and Rec alum wasted no time mocking the new commander-in-chief, which more than made up for the absence of impersonator Alec Baldwin. The episode also featured an ode to outgoing prez Barack Obama, a message from Beck Bennett’s Vladimir Putin, and a sketch in which Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway channeled Chicago‘s Roxie Hart.

'Saturday Night Live' Lampoons Donald Trump, 'La La Land' and Uber in Politically Charged New Episode

7 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

In the wake of Donald Trump's inauguration and the subsequent Women's March that drew millions of activists to protest in the streets of numerous cities nationwide, the political landscape has been on the forefront of everyone's mind.

While politics has often been a lucrative source of comedy for Saturday Night Live, their reliance on political lampooning typically lessened after the election cycle came to a close in years past. However, the relevance of political satire has only increased since this year's election, and SNL has responded in turn.

While Alec Baldwin didn't reprise his impression of the new President this week, SNL managed to tackle politics and pop-culture in equal measure in a way that was noticeably more on-point than in recent episodes (in part because of first-timer Aziz Ansari's masterful job as host). Here's a look at some of SNL's best and most timely sketches of the night.

Watch ‘SNL’ Grill Aziz Ansari for Not Liking ‘La La Land’ Enough (Video)

11 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The cops had Aziz Ansari dead to rights on “SNL” for the egregious crime of thinking “La La Land” — the prohibitive favorite for Best Picture at the Oscars next month — had too many montages. “SNL” perfectly skewered militant “La La Land” fans in a sketch that found Ansari’s Mr. Shah sitting in a police interrogation room. A pair of cops (Beck Bennett and Cecily Strong) have Shah on video on a date saying “La La Land” wasn’t his favorite movie of the year. Check out the full sketch at the top of this post. “So what’s been your favorite movie this year? »

Box Office: M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ Doubles Competition to Win Friday

21 January 2017 7:51 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Split,” from M. Night Shyamalan and Blumhouse Productions, is splintering box office expectations in its opening weekend after earning $14.6 million on Friday from 3,038 locations. The horror-thriller doubled its closest competition, “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” which took in $7.1 million from 3,651 theaters.

Split” is beating Friday estimates, which put it at about $28 million for the weekend. Now, it’s three-day total could be as much as $34 million.

After winning the past two weekend, “Hidden Figures” should sit comfortably in third. The film earned an additional $4.4 million on Friday on its way to a $16 million three-day total. Musical duo “La La Land” and “Sing” should round out the weekend’s top five.

The Founder,” meanwhile, is floundering in its first week. From 1,115 locations, the film grossed about $1 million heading toward a $3 million opening frame.

Faith-based film “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” is heading toward a less-than desirable $1.1 million opening weekend after earning about $380,000 on Friday. »

Sundance Review: ‘L.A. Times’ Finds Sweetness in Self-Obsession

21 January 2017 12:54 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Opening on intricately hand-painted, colorful postcards featuring Los Angeles sights, the distinct eye of Michelle Morgan immediately emerges. Her directorial debut, which she also wrote and leads, takes inspiration from a variety of sources, from these Wes Anderson-esque opening credits to the Whit Stillman-styled dialogue, but as the film progresses and a comedic rhythm clicks into place, L.A. Times blazes its own distinct, disenchanted trail of romance in the modern age.

Annette (Morgan) couldn’t ask for a nicer boyfriend than Elliot (Jorma Taccone, flexing more than capable dramatic muscles alongside the comedy), a TV writer for a Game of Thrones rip-off who pays all their bills. However, as Annette looks at the seemingly happier couples in their friend cricle and begins to nitpick Elliot’s actions — limited to making her walk uphill, help with taking in the garbage cans, and inquiring about the acting gig of a »

Oscar Predix & Personal Ballots: The Moulin Rouge! Categories...

20 January 2017 8:51 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

If you've read The Film Experience for any length of time beyond let's say, a week, you'll know that we live for eye candy. Three of the cinematic arts that most regularly provide this are, outside of beautiful movie stars in the acting categories, Production Design and Costume Design i.e. the Moulin Rouge! categories. We love these categories so much we have two weekly series for them, Daniel Walber's "The Furniture" and my own forthcoming costume series "Three Fittings".

Anyway, it's time to make our final predictions for Oscar but it's also time to get those Film Bitch Awards (my own long running awards jamboree) going. So herewith my personal ballot and, putting the pundit hat on, my Oscar predictions. These two modes should not be confused... so apologies for discussing them simultaneously. This is what happens when you procrastinate!

20 January 2017 1:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

M. Night Shyamalan’s horror-thriller “Split” has separated from its rivals, and is on its way toward a surprisingly strong $28 million in its opening weekend at 3,038 North American locations, early estimates showed Friday.

Vin Diesel’s launch of “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” is heading for a second-place finish with about $20 million at 3,651 sites while the historical drama “Hidden Figures” continues its solid performance in third with $16 million.
