Months of Meryl: Lions for Lambs (2007)

John and Matthew are watching every single live-action film starring Meryl Streep.

#38 — Janine Roth, a liberal network journalist faced with an ethical quandary.

John: When Meryl Streep accepted her Golden Globe for The Devil Wears Prada in January 2007, she divulged a prophecy: “This has been such a fun year to watch movies because of you gals,” she said, citing fellow nominees like Annette Bening, Toni Collette, and Beyoncé. “[It] makes you want to cry with gratitude… until next year.” How could Streep have known that her 2007 would contain some of the most insipid and unwatchable films of her entire career?

In Robert Redford’s Lions for Lambs, Streep switches sides from Rendition, her previous War on Terror drama, playing Janine Roth, an investigative journalist given an exclusive scoop by a hawkish, right-wing senator named Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise) about a new military tactic being deployed in Afghanistan.

‘Chasing Hillary’: Amy Chozick’s Clinton Presidential Campaign Memoir Nabbed By Warner Bros. TV For Series Development

‘Chasing Hillary’: Amy Chozick’s Clinton Presidential Campaign Memoir Nabbed By Warner Bros. TV For Series Development
Exclusive: In a competitive situation, Warner Bros. TV has acquired the rights to Amy Chozick’s bestselling memoir Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns and One Intact Glass Ceiling, to develop as a television series.

For a decade, award-winning New York Times journalist Amy Chozick chronicled Hillary Clinton’s pursuit of the presidency, starting with her imploding 2008 campaign against then-rising Democratic challenger Barack Obama. Chozick was assigned to “The Hillary Beat” ahead of the 2016 Presidential election. The book provides a candid and rollicking first-hand account of the Clinton campaign’s unraveling and her surprising loss to Donald Trump. It was an instant best-seller when it was released by HarperCollins on April 24. International editions have since been released worldwide.

The New York Times review likened Chasing Hillary to The Devil Wears Prada meets Boys on the Bus, and New York Magazine called it “a kind of Bridget Jones’s Diary meets What It Takes,

Months of Meryl: Rendition (2007)

John and Matthew are watching every single live-action film starring Meryl Streep.

#37 —Corrine Whitman, the ruthless head of U.S. intelligence.

Matthew: If the one-two punch of A Prairie Home Companion and The Devil Wears Prada in 2006 represent a high-water mark for Meryl Streep then 2007 might very well be the single oddest year in the actress’ career. How else to explain Streep’s decision to accept secondary and even tertiary parts in four independent-to-midrange projects that not a single Streep enthusiast has ever had the inclination to hold up alongside her most acclaimed or memorable works? Streep spent part of the prior year accepting prizes for Prada and, most excitingly, playing one of the all-time greatest characters in theater history on the outdoor stage of the Delacorte. During that period, Streep also found time to dip her toes into the murky waters of post-9/11 cinema for a second time, following

With ‘The Favourite,’ ‘Widows,’ ‘The Hate U Give,’ and More, Fox Is the Oscar Season Studio Leader

  • Indiewire
Three Fox Searchlight films emerged from Venice and Telluride as potential Oscar players. Bodice-ripper “The Favourite” won two major awards at Venice en route to opening the New York Film Festival (Metascore: 91). Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant scored in dramedy tour-de-force “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” (Metascore: 87). Robert Redford could factor for his charming performance in his swansong “The Old Man & The Gun” (Metascore: 86). And in Toronto, two more mainstream crowdpleasers have emerged from the venerable Hollywood studio, just as Fox heads toward its merger with Disney.

Steve McQueen’s “Widows” (Metascore: 85) is that rare Hollywood creature: a brainy studio movie that entertains and challenges as it reveals the real world. As potential Best Actress Oscar contender Viola Davis told me in Toronto, during one day of shoot in Chicago, 200 shootings occurred.

Meryl Streep is letting go of her N.Y.C. digs.

The actress’s 3,944-square-foot Tribeca penthouse sits high above the Hudson River on the 24th floor of River Lofts apartment building, and features a 10-foot-wide outdoor terrace that would possibly even make Miranda Priestley from The Devil Wears Prada jealous.

From Shakespeare To Elton John: Composer Shaina Taub Gets Ready To Wear ‘Prada’ – On Theater

From Shakespeare To Elton John: Composer Shaina Taub Gets Ready To Wear ‘Prada’ – On Theater
Composer, actress and accordion player Shaina Taub will hang up her squeezebox – temporarily, rest assured – this Sunday when her acclaimed Shakespeare in the Park musical adaptation of Twelfth Night closes its month-long run, bringing an end to a two-year journey that had the now-29-year-old songwriter working with everyone from non-professional performers in all five New York boroughs to the artistic directors of Manhattan’s Public Theater (Oskar Eustis) and London’s Young Vic (Kwame Kwei-Armah).

No end-of-summer blues for Taub, though – well, not a lot anyway – as the 2009 NYU grad and original cast member of Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 forges on with two fantastically intriguing projects: She’s collaborating with Elton John on a musical version of The Devil Wears Prada, and she’s continuing development of her own musical about the

Review: "Crazy Rich Asians"

by Chris Feil

Crazy Rich Asians feels like something sterling from the past, the kind of wholly satisfying and rapturous romantic comedy that we bemoan is missing from the multiplex. Director Jon M. Chu’s loving embrace of the genre pulls its influences from across the decades, infusing Doris Day/Rock Hudson rompiness with the cutting character detail of The Devil Wears Prada. It’s a high mark that the film clears and safely so, sliding with ease onto a shelf next to your rewatchable favorites - and it’s been a minute since something new joined the ranks.

The film’s massive ensemble is led by Constance Wu as Rachel Chu, a self-made economics professor set for her fated meeting with the overseas family of her charming boyfriend Nick Young, played by a painfully dashing Henry Golding. Unbeknownst to Rachel, this family wedding getaway is about to thrust her

7 Other Categories the Oscars Can Add if the Academy Gets Desperate

  • Variety
The Oscars borrowed a trick from high school yearbooks on Wednesday morning by announcing a new award for popularity.

How popular do you need to be to qualify? The motion picture academy has yet to spell that out, but the new category is clearly designed to try to boost ratings and nominate starry blockbusters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and “Star Wars.”

With that in mind, Variety wanted to step up to the plate to help out the Academy. Here are seven other awards the Oscars can add:

Best Performance by a Pet in a Supporting Role

Possible contenders: Uggie from “The Artist,” any of the dogs that played “Lassie,” the horse from “Lean on Pete

Why: Viewers who would tune in to see a Jack Russell Terrier in a tux.

Best Sequel

Possible contenders: “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” “Incredibles 2

Why: They rule the box office,

It follows three women, Ari, Bree (Buteau) and Hazel (Scott) who band together after their marriages fall apart, and who find strength in their sisterhood- and of course a little revenge.

Scott’s Hazel is a gorgeous music superstar who has faded from the limelight and lost the confidence she once had. She has a raw talent and a killer voice that’s been silenced by her husband/manager Sean for years.

Deadpool Hilariously Invades Several Classic Fox Films

Avengers: Infinity War may be the talk of the town, but when it came down to hilarity this year, your friendly neighbourhood mercenary Deadpool was the bee’s knees. And what with the proposed acquisition of 21st Century Fox by The Walt Disney Company currently mired in an utmost precarious state, who knows, we might even see Wade Wilson drag his trademark irreverence kicking and screaming into the McU? But that’s a discussion for another time.

Having confirmed the existence of Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut – which will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD August 21st – the Merc has subsequently farmed out his home release to retailers, who’ve unveiled everything from a super-stylish steelbook to a raunchy children’s book in an attempt to obtain the business of memorabilia hunters. Unfortunately for Best Buy and Target, however, the studio behind David Leitch’s R-rated farce is back in the game.

Ocean’s 8: Fashioning Costume

Minor Spoilers

Movies that feature contemporary fashion, particularly high-end and particularly for women, are a tricky sell costume wise. While men’s semi-formal to formal attire is generally shaped around the fundamental guise of the lounge suit, women’s clothing has a lot more avenues and possibilities. In addition to colour and pattern there is shape and form, which can vary dramatically for the fashionable wearer. What can vary dramatically can also date dramatically and this can be major stumbling block for costume designers. Films centred around the world of fashion, or those that include a lot of fashionable garments such as The Devil Wears Prada (2006), Clueless (1995) and Funny Face (1957) are at the mercy of a strict philosophy: look current but not so innovative that, a) garments will appear dated when trends alter and b) prioritise costume over character (unless that is a narrative point or personality facet). Tricky in the extreme,

‘Set It Up’ Proves a Rom-Com Heroine Can Fall in Love and Still Be Great At Her Job

‘Set It Up’ Proves a Rom-Com Heroine Can Fall in Love and Still Be Great At Her Job
Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

It’s only fitting that Claire Scanlon’s charming romantic comedy “Set It Up” primarily takes place in an office building. Its lead characters are initially bound together by their tough gigs as overworked assistants, and the film is as much about one character’s love affair with her job as it is with her actual paramour. While “Set It Up” is built on a strong foundation of classic rom-com tropes (from the meet-cutes to the misunderstandings), it also winks at the genre, folding in some smart subversions along the way. The best one: that fledgling journalist Harper (Zoey Deutch) is equally compelled by her career and her budding romance with Charlie (Glen Powell).

Few rom-coms have managed to successfully build a love story that also has the space for either of its leads — especially the

U.S. Trailer for Robert Schwentke’s WWII Thriller ‘The Captain’

After the last decade-plus German director Robert Schwentke has been a Hollywood mainstay with varying levels of success, including Flightplan, Red, R.I.P.D., and a pair of Divergent films. For his latest film, he’s going smaller-scale and back to his roots with the WWII thriller The Captain – also known by its German title Der Hauptmann. With this psychologically challenging thriller, this isn’t Schwentke’s first independent venture as his 2002 horror drama Tattoo found an arthouse audience.

In her review for RogerEbert.com, Tina Hassannia compared the ideologies explored in The Captain to the Milgram experiment, the Stanford University-led experiment that unveiled people’s willingness to physically harm their peers if a high enough authority ordered them to do so. The comparison proves accurate as The Captain centers on German army deserter Willi Herold who disguises himself as a Nazi soldier in order to avoid capture. However, this disguise
