‘The World Is Yours’ Review: Romain Gavras’ Brilliant Caper Comedy Is the Anti-Scarface — Cannes 2018

Romain Gavras’ “The World Is Yours” might take its title from a certain gangster classic — or its blood-soaked Brian De Palma remake, which only made a life of crime seem that much cooler — but this wildly infectious French heist comedy is pretty much the anti-“Scarface.” A hyper-stylish and unexpectedly sweet rebuke to the idea that screwing people is a good way to get ahead, Gavras’ second feature manages the almost impossible task of mining something nice from the me-first mentality that’s been sweeping across modern Europe. It’s “Sexy Beast,” “Spring Breakers,” and “Little Miss Sunshine” all blended together and served with a lad-rock swagger; it’s the best movie that Guy Ritchie never made.

Whereas Tony Camonte (or Tony Montana) came to the game as a refugee looking to make a name for himself, François (Karim Leklou) was born into a dog-eat-dog underworld full of killers and cheats.

Rebel Wilson Will Headline A Remake Of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

As if wishing to prove correct the accusation that Hollywood is currently engaged in a mission to gender swap its entire back catalogue – as if that goes some way to addressing issues of inequality within the industry – MGM has announced its intention to remake Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, as a female-led project. Rebel Wilson will produce and star in this revisiting of the popular 1988 comedy.

The original starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine as two con men attempting to covertly free an heiress of her money. It is a well-regarded entry into the comedy genre of the late-80s – reflecting the arrogance and excesses of the era, combined with the comedy-sparring of Martin and Caine. This new version – written by Jac Schaeffer – will see the lead roles gender-swapped, as two female con artists pit themselves against each other to manipulate a naïve tech industry genius into handing over his millions.

The Watkins Family Hour - Lincoln Center

Saturday night was a perfect summer evening for free Americana music at Lincoln's Center Damrosch Park as part of the Annual Roots of American Music, Americanafest NYC. The evening featured two of the genres rising stars. The headliners played two sets with the first half of the set featuring mostly original tunes by former Nickel Creek members Sean and Sara Watkin's new band The Watkins Family Hour. They and their extraordinary band entertained a robust crowd of New Yorkers and tourists alike. One of my favorite songs of the evening was their beatiful take on the Grateful Dead's "Brokedown Palace." And co-vocalist Fionna Apple's original song "A Mistake" was quite moving. Yes, she's one of the members of this band.

The second part of the set was a full-on tribute to Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited performed in its entirety by the band -- guitarist/vocalist Sean Watkins, fiddle/vocalist Sara Watkins,

25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

Sigourney Weaver: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

20th Century Fox

Frequently referred to as being the ‘queen of sci-fi’, Sigourney Weaver’s reputation for playing the no-nonsense, steel-willed Ripley in the Alien franchise has led to the actor being recognised as one of the first and greatest lead female characters in any film series. Weaver’s starring role in the original Alien not only cemented her fame among fans of science fiction though, her performance, along with Ridley Scott’s directorial prowess directly contributed to the genre becoming a mainstream one.

Ripley is undoubtedly Weaver’s most famous role to date, but it’s certainly not her only one, and it’s all too easy easy to overlook some of her other equally brilliant performances due to the massive shadow cast by the xenomorph horde. The characters of Dana Barrett in Ghostbusters and Grace Augustine in Avatar both continued Weaver’s successful status as a science fiction icon,

Grammys slowly turning from classic rock but settling for repeated new classics

Grammys slowly turning from classic rock but settling for repeated new classics
The 2015 Grammy nominations are in, and there are plenty of familiar faces in the various Rock categories, where even some of the new faces are getting to be too familiar. It's well known, that despite all the mountains of music released each year, the Grammy Awards tend to nominate the same acts over and over and over. Once a group has established a foothold in the biz, they're bound to return to the award show year after year, particularly in the Rock categories. While the Grammys often tend to look to past success stories for nominees in the Best Rock Album category -- last year's batch featured Black Sabbath, David Bowie, Neil Young and Led Zeppelin -- recent winners have been more contemporary. But since 2000, the category has been won by the Foo Fighters three times, and Green Day twice, and even relative upstarts like The Black Keys are starting

Norman Reedus Was Offered A Role In Heartbreakers, Assumed It Involved Rape Or Murder

Typecasting can become the bane of an actor's existence. When a star proves that they can do something very well, Hollywood has a habit of exploiting this particular talent until audiences are entirely sick of it and move on to something else. It's this exact trap that Norman Reedus fell into back in the early '00s, when he found himself constantly playing murderers and criminals. It got so bad, in fact, that he eventually started thinking that it was all the industry had to offer him. As a result, when offered the the male lead in the 2001 romantic con-artist comedy Heartbreakers he was actually convinced that the part would require him to rape and kill Jennifer Love Hewitt. This strange little tidbit comes to us from an interview that the Walking Dead star recently did with GQ, part of which was dedicated to discussing the early years of Reedus'

Norman Reedus Reveals Why He Turned Down Jennifer Love Hewitt Movie "Heartbreakers"

  • TooFab
Norman Reedus came thisclose to being a romantic comedy star.Yeah, we don't see it -- and neither did he, which is why he turned down a starring role in the Jennifer Love Hewitt flick "Heartbreakers."The "Walking Dead" star has a history of taking on bizarre (and sometimes brutal) roles, so when the offer came down to play J-Love's love interest in the 2001 film, he was just as surprised as everyone else."There was a movie she did with Sigourney Weaver, and I think Jason Lee played the part. When that came around at the time, my agents at the time were, 'They like you for this part, and it's a Jennifer Love Hewitt movie.' And I'm like, 'Well, what do I do?' And they're, 'You're her boyfriend,' And I go, 'Well, do I rape her? Do I kill her? What do I do?' And they go,

Which Famous Actors Have Never Been In A Good Movie?

Paramount Pictures

Through science – or rather, accumulated Rotten Tomatoes scores – it recently became apparent that both Ashton Kutcher, best known for his roles in dreadful rom-coms, and Jennifer Love Hewitt, best known for… well, her roles in dreadful rom-coms, have never been in a critically-acclaimed film. Scan their filmographies and you won’t find a “Fresh” score upon even one of their motion picture ventures. Seriously: the highest rated Ashton Kutcher film on Rotten Tomatoes is No Strings Attached with a mere 49%. Love Hewitt’s is Heartbreakers, with 53%.

Which is to say: these guys have managed to formulate entire careers out of bad movies, proving that it’s entirely possible to work in Hollywood even if you’ve done nothing – literally, Nothing – of worth. It appears, at least, that Ashton Kutcher has tried to take a few risks outside of his normal areas of “expertise” (Jobs, for example, was a

'The Beatles: The Night That Changed America - A Grammy Salute' celebrates 50 years with Katy Perry, Keith Urban

On Feb. 9, 1964, the British invaded America in a way that made pop-culture history.

Four lads from Liverpool gave their first U.S. television performance on "The Ed Sullivan Show," and exactly 50 years later -- same hour, same night, same network -- the event will be recalled in the CBS special "The Beatles: The Night That Changed America - A Grammy Salute" Sunday, Feb. 9. Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr perform on the show, and also are interviewed by David Letterman, but renderings of the ultra-iconic group's music largely fall to others.

The roster includes teamings of Keith Urban and John Mayer, and Alicia Keys and John Legend, plus Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder, Brad Paisley, Pharrell Williams, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, and a reunion of former Eurythmics partners Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart.

The Beatles themselves will be represented by clips from the Sullivan show, on which they also
