David Duchovny, Sharon Stone, Jeff Daniels Give Bizarre Fan Advice on ‘Colbert’
David Duchovny, Sharon Stone, Jeff Daniels, Simon Pegg, Helen Hunt and other celebrities offered strange advice to Late Show fans in a goofy bit from Thursday’s episode titled “Dear Famous People.” The pre-filmed piece featured a series of presumably fake letters and increasingly unhelpful answers the actors.

The first person wrote that he’s been dating a woman for six months but just recently learned she doesn’t want children. “Ed, having kids is one of the biggest responsibilities you could ever have,” Duchovny replied. “It’s the equivalent of owning,

Toronto Film Review: ‘This Changes Everything’

Toronto Film Review: ‘This Changes Everything’
You may be asking: Why is a man reviewing a documentary about gender inequality in Hollywood? But then you may as well ask: Why did a man direct such a film in the first place?

Representation is an issue that affects all of us, on-screen and off, and while it’s inspirational to see women directors such as Natalie Portman and Maria Giese on the front lines of the 2017 Women’s March — as we do in Tom Donahue’s “This Changes Everything” — there’s something to be said for solidarity shown by those who have nothing to gain from their support beyond the advancement of the greater good. So, like white people at a Black Lives Matter rally or straight folks at a Gay Pride parade, Donahue deserves credit for proactively going out of his way to make a movie that tells it like it is — and paints it as it could be.

Stormy Daniels Owed Unclaimed SAG-AFTRA Residuals

Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who’s locked in an ongoing legal battle with President Donald Trump, is owed unclaimed residuals by SAG-AFTRA. The union’s unclaimed residuals site doesn’t say how much she’s owed but notes that, “If the union is holding unclaimed residuals, it is because we can’t locate you.”

Daniels, however, isn’t that hard to locate – she’s represented by newly famous attorney Michael Avanetti in her lawsuit against the president.

Most of her acting credits have been in adult films, which aren’t covered by SAG-aftra contracts, but she’s also worked on several theatrical films and TV shows that are, including two films directed by Judd Apatow – The 40-Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Several of her Knocked Up co-stars also are owed unclaimed SAG residuals, including Seth Rogen, Ken Jeong and Iris Apatow, the director’s daughter.

‘Die Hard’ Celebrates 30th Anniversary with Outdoor ‘Nakatomi Tower’ Screening
For a movie originally marketed as “40 stories of sheer adventure,” what better way to see John McTiernan’s seminal 1988 actioner “Die Hard” than in the shadow of Nakatomi Tower itself?

That’s just how 20th Century Fox celebrated the film’s 30th anniversary Saturday night, with an outdoor screening at the foot of Fox Plaza in Century City, which stood in for the famed fictional tower. Hundreds gathered on the roof of an adjacent parking garage at dusk as the gleaming structure provided a picturesque backdrop and the most movie-Mecca-like filmgoing experience this side of Devils Tower and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”

“It was kind of the star of the movie,” Bonnie Bedelia, one of the film’s (other) stars, told Variety just before the screening. She and co-star Reginald VelJohnson were on hand to introduce the film for the fans in attendance, many of whom wore T-shirts

Top 5 Casino Movies

Hollywood has, over the years, constantly flirted with Las Vegas and the casino. There are far too many films to mention where casinos are heavily featured, but we thought we’d look at the top five we feel perfectly bring them both together.

The Hangover

Back in 2009, Todd Phillips brought a movie to the screen which captured a generation. The first film in The Hangover series was the most popular and, at the time, was the top-grossing R-rated movie of all time, taking $467 million at the global box-office. The film follows a group of guys who venture to Las Vegas for a bachelor party – one in which they wake up having lost the groom. They must try to get over their hangovers and discover what happened the night before. The film is completely set in Las Vegas and heavily features one of the most famous casinos on the strip, Las Vegas.

Martin Scorsese Handpicked These 16 Key B-Movies and Westerns for Unique MoMA Series

Martin Scorsese Handpicked These 16 Key B-Movies and Westerns for Unique MoMA Series
Among Martin Scorsese’s directing projects-in-progress are a new television show (“The Caesars”), plus films based on an Oklahoma murder mystery (“Killers of the Flower Moon”) and the life of the 26th U.S. president (“Teddy”). He will also soon reunite with actors who delivered their most-acclaimed performances opposite his lens: “Casino” veteran Sharon Stone will star in a Scorsese film that’s still under wraps, while Robert De Niro’s ninth collaboration with the director — Netflix’s “The Irishman” — will be the priciest film of Scorsese’s career (reported budget: $140 million).

Still, the Oscar winner (“The Departed”) has set aside spare time for his signature cause: film preservation.

In his hometown next month, MoMA will host the second-half of its exhibition, “Martin Scorsese Presents Republic Rediscovered: New Restorations from Paramount Pictures.” The defunct studio Republic Pictures churned out 3,000 films and series, all of which are now property of Paramount.

Commando Facts You Never Knew

Commando Facts You Never Knew
It doesn't matter if you're a mercenary, a Green Beret, or a small army: if you mess with Arnold's kid, you're going down. That's right, it's Commando! Let off some steam as we talk about one of the best action movies ever. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Commando.

It was written for Gene Simmons.

Commando was originally conceived as a vehicle for none other than Gene Simmons. Despite the critical beating taken by Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park, the Demon still had the acting bug going into the '80s. He played the villain in Tom Selleck's Runaway, turned up in an episode of Miami Vice, and played a radio DJ in one of MovieWeb's favorite cult films, Trick Or Treat. Simmons actually turned down Commando, which was co-written by his friends Matthew Weisman and Jeph Loeb, who is now the head of Marvel Television.

Five Gambling Movies To Check Out In 2018

Gambling and the movies – a partnership that has lasted decades. The union of the film and games industry will continue to grow, but in this new post we thought we’d look at the relationship between the two through five terrific movies that you can check out via streaming platforms in 2018.

Croupier

This is a film that dates back nearly two decades, but absolutely resonates to this very day.

In a career defining role, Owen plays a part-time writer who involves himself in the London gaming industry and then realises that his experiences would make a great novel.

Confronting Hollywood Ageism, ‘Mosaic’s Sharon Stone Refuses To Be Constrained

  • Deadline
When Steven Soderbergh set out to make Mosaic—a murder mystery surrounding a magnetic, commanding and complex female character—he had in mind one particular actress who can expertly convey all those traits with barely a blink: Sharon Stone. And in playing the doomed Olivia Lake, Stone enthusiastically dug deep into a character that was “messy and flawed and vulnerable and warts and all.” Which is not surprising, given Stone’s penchant for authenticity as her career has progressed, and her refusal to cave to the stereotypical roles on offer for older women.

This role was essentially written for you. What were the conversations between you, Soderbergh and the writer Ed Solomon like beforehand?

Well, I didn’t know a lot about it in advance. Steven called me and told me that it was a big piece, that we would each just get our own section—the script is 500 pages

Sharon Stone eyes Emmy return with her acclaimed performance in ‘Mosaic’

Sharon Stone eyes Emmy return with her acclaimed performance in ‘Mosaic’
In 2004, Sharon Stone won the Best Guest Drama Actress Emmy Award for her scene-stealing turn as attorney Sheila Carlisle on “The Practice.” This year, with her acclaimed performance in Steven Soderbergh‘s six-part HBO miniseries “Mosaic,” Stone is well-positioned for a return to the Emmys, this time in Best TV Movie/Limited Series Supporting Actress.

In “Mosaic,” Stone portrays Olivia Lake, a successful children’s book author and illustrator living an extravagant, if lonesome existence in the ski resort town of Summit, Utah. She crosses paths with the handsome artist and bartender Joel (Garrett Hedlund) and, hoping their friendship might blossom into something more romantic, invites him to rent out space in her lavish home. During this time, Olivia also meets the charming Eric (Frederick Weller) who, unbeknownst to her, is a con man employed by a neighbor hoping to force her to sell the property.
