Julia Roberts and James Corden Recreate Her Career in 9 Minutes, Have a ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ Sing-Along
Julia Roberts is just a girl, standing in front of James Corden, asking him to act out her movies with her. The 49-year-old Oscar winner recreated some of her top films during a clip, which aired on Wednesday's The Late Late Show.

Starting out with her iconic line from Notting Hill, she went on to act out scenes from Runaway Bride, Steel Magnolias, Charlie Wilson’s War, Mystic Pizza, Pretty Woman, Hook, Erin Brockovich, The Pelican Brief, and Sleeping With the Enemy.

When it came time to act out Oceans 11 and 12, Corden stepped out in an interesting outfit.

“What are you doing?” Roberts asked him.

“I’m being George Clooney! I’ve got coffee, tequila, a couple of these,” he said, knocking together some twin baby dolls.

City Slickers: the behind the scenes challenges of a comedy hit

Simon Brew Aug 8, 2017

1991's City Slickers was an Oscar-winning comedy success. It was not without behind the scenes challenges...

Spoilers for City Slickers lie ahead.

Sandwiched between the two big tentpole blockbuster hits of summer 1991 was a genuine sleeper surprise. Whilst it had long been pre-ordained that the Arnold Schwarzenegger-headlined Terminator 2: Judgment Day would rule the summer season with the Kevin Costner-starring Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, what few saw coming was a film called City Slickers.

It came from the pen of Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, the comedy-writing team who scripted 1989’s brilliant Parenthood. They co-write the film with Billy Crystal (who didn’t receive credit), who also conceived the idea for the film. And as with most unlikely successes, it had a bit of a history to it.

Crystal came to the idea in the aftermath of his success in When Harry Met Sally,

‘Unforgettable’ Review: Katherine Heigl Proves She Can Be Very Good At Playing Very Bad

‘Unforgettable’ Review: Katherine Heigl Proves She Can Be Very Good At Playing Very Bad
In the spirit of Fatal Attraction, Sleeping With The Enemy and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle (and their endless imitators) comes yet another predictable variation in the form of the suspense thriller Unforgettable. The title alone is obvious catnip for critics, and it would just be too easy to take the Un away, but quite frankly I am not sure what the title has to do with this movie anyway. So yes, the premise is not exactly memorable, but what the movie does have going…

‘Personal Shopper’ Tops New Openers, and ‘A Very Sordid Wedding’ Shines

One year ago, the post-Oscar specialized rebound began with the release of “Eye in the Sky” and “Hello, My Name Is Doris.” Each opened with per-theater averages over $20,000; then, with support from older audiences all across the country, made $19 million and $14 million, respectively.

This year it’s “Personal Shopper,” with the French film starring Kristen Stewart showing unexpected interest. “Raw” (Focus) and “A Sense of the Ending” (Lionsgate) also managed PTAs over $10,000, indicating some chance for future success.

Ahead of any other new release in PTA was a single theater, premiere-event boosted initial date for “A Very Sordid Wedding” in Palm Springs. This week also saw the very limited opening of “Burning Sands,” the second film in the Sundance 2017 U.S. dramatic competition to find its home on Netflix. As usual, no gross for this, which is sort of beside the point.

‘The Ottoman Lieutenant’ Review: Josh Hartnett and Ben Kingsley Star In a Lifeless Melodrama Set Against the Armenian Genocide

‘The Ottoman Lieutenant’ Review: Josh Hartnett and Ben Kingsley Star In a Lifeless Melodrama Set Against the Armenian Genocide
A limp and lifeless historical melodrama that aspires to be the “Pearl Harbor” of the preamble to World War I and still falls well short of that ignoble goal, Joseph Ruben’s “The Ottoman Lieutenant” tries to snatch a love triangle from out beneath the Armenian Genocide but fails to get any of the angles right. Beginning in a Philadelphia hospital circa 1914 (Prague plays the city well), the film is tawdry from the very top, taking the same reckless approach to clichés that pre-war doctors took to general hygiene.

You can hear the trouble before you can see it, our wide-eyed heroine introducing herself via such startlingly trite voiceover that she’s a lost cause by the time she first appears on screen. “I thought I was going to change the world,” she says, “but of course it was the world that changed me.” Get comfortable, it’s going to be a bumpy night.

The Weekend Warrior 3/10/17: Kong: Skull Island, Brimstone, Canners

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out….but mostly movies.

This Past Weekend:

It was absolutely no surprise that Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine movie Logan would top the box office, but it actually ended up doing even better than my prediction when actual numbers came in, grossing $88.3 million over the weekend. That makes it the fourth highest X-Movie opening (including Deadpool) but also the biggest R-rated opening for March, defeating 300’s once-impressive $70 million opening. It’s also the fourth highest R-rated opening of all time after Deadpool, The Matrix Reloaded and American Sniper.

The bigger surprise was how well Jordan Peele’s thriller Get Out held up in its second weekend, not only because it was going up against Logan, but also because high-profile horror films tend

Ben Kingsley and Josh Hartnett star in first trailer for The Ottoman Lieutenant

The first trailer for The Ottoman Lieutenant, the latest film from director Joseph Ruben (The Stepfather, Sleeping with the Enemy), has been released (via Movieclips Trailers). The historical drama follows a woman torn between two lovers, played by Hera Hilmar (Anna Karenina), Josh Hartnett (Penny Dreadful) and Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), as they live within the Ottoman Empire in the time leading up to and during World War I; Ben Kingsley (The Jungle Book) also stars in the Jeff Stockwell-written film. Check out the trailer here…

The above trailer was first unveiled back in late 2016, but with its 2017 wide release approaching, Y Productions and Eastern Sunrise Films surely want to remind audiences members or make them aware of its existence.

Despite a decent cast, Ruben’s previous directorial effort, Penthouse North, failed to drum up enough interest to make any serious waves. Overall, it was a quiet return

[Review] The Girl on the Train

There’s a moment somewhere in the middle of The Girl on the Train, adapted from the hit Paula Hawkins novel, in which Detective Riley (Allison Janney) lays out some of the coincidences and potential consequences that have begun to play out for Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt), an alcoholic implicated in a local missing persons case. Said missing person happens to be a young woman named Megan (Haley Bennett) who lives two houses down from where Rachel once lived with her ex-husband Tom (Justin Theroux), where he still lives with his new wife Anna (Rebecca Ferguson) and their newborn. Also, it turns out that Megan was Tom and Anna’s nanny. Oh, and she might be having an affair, which Rachel might have seen from the window of the commuter train she takes into the city every day.

Ridiculous as all of this may sound, director Tate Taylor (The Help,

Films people agreed to make to get their dream projects made

Simon Brew Oct 7, 2016

From Demolition Man and James Bond through to Speed 2 and Steven Seagal: the movies filmmakers took on to get other projects made.

One for the studio, one for yourself? That’s sometimes been the case when it comes to making movies, and we suspect – under the surface – it happens more than we’re ever told. However, every now and then, it becomes clear that someone has signed up for a movie, with getting the film they really, really want to make as the hidden reason. Such as in these cases…

Nigel Hawthorne: Demolition Man

The late, great Nigel Hawthorne wasn't much of a fan of the much-liked Sylvester Stallone-Wesley Snipes showdown, Demolition Man. In his autobiography Straight Face, Hawthorne called the experience of making the film "miserable", and wasn't impressed with the time lost on set waiting around for Stallone and Snipes.

The Boy (2016) review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott

The Boy (2016)

Written by: Stacey Menear

Directed by: William Brent Bell

Cast: Lauren Cohan (Greta), Rupert Evans (Malcolm), Jim Norton (Mr. Heelshire), Diana Hardcastle (Mrs. Heelshire), Ben Robson (Cole)

The scenario most always plays out the same way. A break out hit film or show with an ensemble cast spawns many unrelated off shoots with members of that cast allowed to showcase their talents on a singular level. Sometimes it’s spectacular, sometimes it’s tragic, and sometimes a film that would have completely flown under the radar, breaks through the haze of obscurity because of one golden ticket. That ticket is name recognition, and if the film isn’t a hit, it will at least find its place as a footnote in genre history.

Lukewarm off the Presses: Hamilton, Banks, Anastasia, Cloak & Dagger. Plus Tony Buzz!

Nathaniel, back from the Nashville Film Festival where I juried on the "New Directors" competition. More on that once our awards are announced. Until then, I'm under hush order. But let's catch up on all sorts of movie & entertainment news that happened over the past handful of days that we didn't cover here.

Lin-Manuel Miranda won the Pulitzer for his Broadway smash Hamilton and, giddy squeal, The New Yorker's television goddess Emily Nussbaum won the Pulitzer for criticism. If you haven't read her, you must. She's just wonderful.

• The Golden Globes have clarified their rules for what drama and comedy mean in a probably futile attempt to get campaigns to stop trying to game the system.
