The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in January 2018

Does a new year mean a new Netflix? Probably not, as their slate for the first month of 2018 is still troublingly light on movies that would be old enough to have their own Netflix accounts. Nevertheless, the streaming giant has plugged a few of the biggest gaps in their library of classic films, adding “The Godfather” trilogy, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” and the entire “Bring it On” series in one fell swoop.

Here are the seven best films to stream on Netflix in January 2018 (and click here for a list of everything that’s been added to the service this month).

7. “Definitely, Maybe” (2008)

Remember romantic comedies? They were nice. Sure, many of them were patently insane, and almost all of them reinforced some pernicious gender norms, but they could also be sweet and sincere reminders that we’re all just out there looking for love. “Definitely, Maybe” is one of the genre’s better examples,

To celebrate today’s release of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus – available in stores from today – here’s a list of the Ten Best phone scenes in movies, showcasing some of the most famous telephone calls ever made.

Sarah Paulson Performs One Woman Show ‘Hillary’s Emails’ on ‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’
Last night on “Full Frontal,” host Samantha Bee laid out her final thoughts on this year’s presidential election. She provided a full endorsement for “Hillary Goddamn Brilliant Badass Queen Beyoncé Rodham” and aired a segment in which Bee travels to Russia to examine journalism under the dictatorial rule of Vladimir Putin. However, one of her main segments last night examined Hillary Clinton’s emails, one of the central issues of the campaign, and how it mostly demonstrates how Clinton asks her staff to print everything for her. In order to best illustrate “the fascinating emails of a sixty-something,” Bee enlists actress Sarah Paulson to help read some of the emails in her one woman show “Hillary’s Emails: Yes I Am Up.” Watch the segment below.

CinemaCon: ‘Birth of a Nation,’ ‘La La Land’ Stand Out in Blockbuster Fray

CinemaCon: ‘Birth of a Nation,’ ‘La La Land’ Stand Out in Blockbuster Fray
Las Vegas — A day after 20th Century Fox announced it would be releasing Warren Beatty’s as-yet-untitled Howard Hughes film in partnership with New Regency later this year, the studio took over the Colosseum at Caesars Palace to show off its upcoming slate. But amid the blockbuster noise of hotly anticipated titles like “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Independence Day: Resurgence,” it was a prestige drama from subsidiary Fox Searchlight that truly stood out from the fray.

Searchlight acquired Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” out of Sundance for a hefty price tag of $18 million in January, so the specialty division needs it to be a hit. Part of that deal stipulated that an educational roadshow component be provided, whereby Parker will travel with the film and speak to its story and themes. All the more reason, then, for this to be Searchlight’s first year presenting at CinemaCon, to get exhibitors on board.

Sarah Paulson Talks Working With Todd Haynes, Period Acting, and ‘Carol’

With Far from Heaven, Mildred Pierce, and I’m Not There, Todd Haynes has often depicted the dark, authentic underbelly of the perfect family that lives down the lane. In his latest film, Carol, he returns to the 1950s, with a titular character (Cate Blanchett) who’s lavish on top — impeccably dressed and elegant — but is aching underneath out of love for both her daughter and her new lover, Therese (Rooney Mara).

The woman Carol can always expect to stand by her is Abby, played by Sarah Paulson. Everything we need to know about their friendship isn’t from when their romantic past is mentioned, but when the two simply walk together, holding onto each other. Carol is a film in which actions often speak louder than words — one of the reasons why Paulson was drawn to the project.

The actress was kind enough to make time to discuss Haynes’ newest picture with us.

Fyc: Sarah Paulson, Carol's Best Supporting Actress

The Film Experience is proud to welcome back Matthew Eng for this personal Fyc

Sarah Paulson photographed for VarietyThese days, to simply see Sarah Paulson’s name in the opening credits of any project is enough to make me sit back, relax, and sigh with deep and reverent relief that — no matter the lapses in storytelling, the dubiousness of politics, or the haphazard efforts of other actors — I am in the hands of at least one supremely assured and eternally convincing performer.

As someone who missed Aaron Sorkin’s infamous Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and the extensive list of sitcoms and serials she appeared in from the mid-nineties to the late-2000s (not to mention her numerous stage roles and occasional film appearances), my Sarah Paulson fandom is fairly recent. Of course, like many, I’d seen and admired her wry gal pal in Down with Love, which

Director Terry Gilliam Actually Likes ‘Ant-Man’
It’s not surprising people like Ant-Man. It’s a funny, cool, and clever superhero pic that relies more on the conventions of a heist movie than a superhero movie.

Peyton Reed Will Return to Direct Marvel's 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'

Recently, Marvel (and Disney) announced that the sequel to Ant-Man would be titled Ant-Man and the Wasp and is slated to arrive in theaters July of 2018. We already know, and certainly expect, that actor Paul Rudd will be back as Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man. Now THR is reporting that director Peyton Reed is also returning for the sequel, and is in negotiations to direct Ant-Man and the Wasp as his next feature. Most will remember that Peyton was chosen to replace Edgar Wright, who left after working on the project for a long time. The movie still turned out pretty good, the sequel is already in the works, and Reed will be back. Before getting into the Marvel Universe, Peyton Reed was making mostly comedies including Bring It On, Down with Love, The Break-Up and Yes Man with Jim Carrey. Marvel's Ant-Man movie ended up with a box office total of $178 million in the Us,
