Bradley Cooper Honored at American Cinematheque, Pressing Oscar Advantage
The art of being a movie star includes good timing. Take the American Cinematheque Tribute to Bradley Cooper on Thursday night. These events usually burnish star luster, as in the case of recent recipients Amy Adams, Matt Damon, or Matthew McConaughey. But when such a tribute unfolds at the height of an Oscar campaign, it can move the needle. “A Star Is Born” scored Best Director and Actress at the National Board of Review this week, which reflects the movie’s current status as the frontrunner for Best Picture, Actress, and Actor at awards site Gold Derby.

These events are carefully curated. Warner Bros. put this event in motion two years ago, with the fall 2018 release date of “A Star Is Born” in mind. And while Cooper self-deprecatingly mocked the huge posters and program covers all around the Beverly Hilton ballroom — in George-Clooney style — when I greeted him at his table,

Why ‘Paddington 2’ Deserves Oscar Nominations in at Least Five Categories

Why ‘Paddington 2’ Deserves Oscar Nominations in at Least Five Categories
It shouldn’t feel like a crazy idea to suggest that “Paddington 2” should be a serious player in this year’s awards race. Yes, a sequel hasn’t been nominated for Best Picture since “Mad Max: Fury Road” in 2015, and a “kids’ movie” hasn’t made the cut since “Toy Story 3” in 2010.

True, “Paddington 2” came out in January — a month that belongs to the previous year, so far as the Oscar season is concerned — and yes, the story of a computer-generated bear trying to retrieve a pop-up book for his aunt (also a computer-generated bear) might look a little silly next to a sweeping historical epic like “Roma” or a zeitgeist-destroying love story like “A Star Is Born.” While there’s no denying that Hugh Grant brilliantly reinterprets the music of Stephen Sondheim, it’s hard to compete with Lady Gaga forever transforming the soul of Jackson Maine.

The CW is Developing a Reboot of The 4400

It’s kind of silly that Hollywood rarely takes chances on original concepts. In 2007 the USA Network series The 4400 aired its final episode. It was a decent series for its time, but now The CW wants to reboot it.

The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios, which produced the original series and the project is being developed by Taylor Elmore and Craig Sweeny. They will co-write the pilot for the reboot and executive produce, with Elmore set to serve as showrunner.

In the series, “over the course of recent history, four thousand four hundred young adults in their reproductive prime have gone missing all over the world. Some disappearances happened as recently as a few weeks ago, while others date as far back as the day the Soviets launched the Sputnik satellite in 1957. One day in 2019, all 4,400 show up at the sites of their original abductions. None

The 4400 Reboot Series in the Works for The CW

Joseph Baxter Nov 7, 2018

A reboot of the USA Network sci-fi mystery series, The 4400, is in development at The CW.

The 4400 is not a show that gets name-dropped very often these days, but that will soon change. The slow-burn sci-fi mystery series, which ran for four seasons on USA Network from 2004 to 2007 will make its own dare to defy attempt with a reboot series now being planned for The CW.

The current version of the original producing studio of The 4400, CBS Television Studios, is returning to the property to produce a reboot/reimagining of the series, developed as an offering for The CW. The studio has given the reigns of the series to the overall-deal-fulfilling duo of Taylor Elmore and a writer/producer from the original series in Craig Sweeny. Elmore and Sweeny will co-write the pilot an serve as executive producers. Additionally, Elmore has been designated as the

The 4400 Reboot Eyed at The CW

The CW is looking to reboot another popular franchise. The network, which is already home to Charmed, Dynasty and the forthcoming Roswell, New Mexico, is developing a reboot of the sci-fi drama The 4400, Deadline reports.

The original 4400, which starred Joel Gretsch, Jacqueline McKenzie and eventual Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, ran for four seasons (a total of 44 episodes) on USA Network from 2004-2007. The official logline for the reboot reads as follows:

‘The 4400’ Reboot in the Works at The CW

  • The Wrap
The CW is in development on a reboot of “The 4400,” TheWrap has learned.

Co-written and executive produced by Craig Sweeny and Taylor Elmore, the drama from CBS Television Studios is a reimagining of the USA network series which ran for four seasons beginning in 2004.

In the series, 4,400 young adults in their reproductive prime have gone missing all over the world — some disappearances happened as recently as a few weeks ago, while others date as far back as the infamous day the Soviets launched the Sputnik satellite in 1957. One day in 2019, all 4,400 show up at the sites of their original abductions. None of them have aged a day; none have any memory of where they’ve been. The so-called “4400” must grapple with their return to a changed and hostile world… and also contend with the reality that they’ve come back altered in ways that none of them yet understand.

Taylor Swift Rules at the American Music Awards 2018: Look What You Made Her Do

What happened? Somehow the American Music Awards turned out to be bizarrely undisastrous this year. As cheesy award shows go, this one has always been on a sub-cheddar level, usually held back for the holiday season and usually totally ignored. But for some reason, the AMAs decided to be a big deal last night, packing the show with stellar performances, from Taylor to Cardi. They invited Khalid instead of Khaled. They did an Aretha Franklin tribute that focused on music instead of Madonna giving a speech. Tracee Ellis Ross hosted in style,

TV Review: Swift, Cabello, Lipa, Cardi Leave Dudes in Dust on American Music Awards
Elections have consequences, and by electing Taylor Swift as the American Music Awards’ artist of the year, pop fans gave the superstar another platform from which to spread her crazy, incendiary, rabble-rousing entreaties to… find a polling place. “Every single award given out tonight was voted on by the people,” Swift said, upon picking up her third and final award of the evening, “and you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections Nov. 6. Get out and vote.” As if we needed a reason to like her about 25% more right now.

No one would accuse the AMAs of getting repeatedly or unusually political in the broadcast that took place from L.A. Microsoft Theater Tuesday night, but one presenter did take a cue from Swift, and that was presenting comedian Billy Eichner, who took the audience to church as he sermonized, “Young people of America,

Bradley Cooper movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ ‘American Sniper’
It’s the weekend which many film fans have circled on their calendars with the premiere of Bradley Cooper‘s directorial debut, the fourth edition of “A Star Is Born.” Cooper had worked for years to develop the film, serving as the film’s star (opposite Lady Gaga), director, co-producer, co-writer, and he co-authored two of the film’s songs as well. Cooper, who has worked with some of the finest film directors around, such as Clint Eastwood and David O. Russell, obviously has picked up from them how to incorporate the many elements that go into making a film.

Cooper, who made his feature acting debut in 2001’s “Wet Hot American Summer,” found his stardom grow along with his filmography. He is one of only 10 men who have been nominated for acting Oscars three years in a row. He also earned a fourth Academy Award nomination for producing Best Picture nominee “American Sniper.

Kevin Hart takes on a semi-serious role in the upcoming film The Upside. In the film he plays struggling man with a criminal record who lands a job taking care of a wealthy paraplegic, played by Bryan Cranston.

The film is a remake of the 2011 French film called The Intouchables. It’s based on a true story and the film offers audiences a comedic look at the relationship between these two individuals.

  • HeyUGuys
Stx Entertainment has released the first trailer for their English-language remake of The Intouchables, The Upside.

Based on a true story, the story follows an ex-con (Kevin Hart) as he takes on a job to care for a paralysed billionaire (Bryan Cranston) striking up the unlikeliest of friendships.

The Untouchables was released in 2011 and was directed by Olivier Nakache & Éric Toledano. It stars François Cluzet and Omar Sy. The film has received several award nominations. In France, the film won the César Award for Best Actor for Omar Sy, and garnered seven further nominations for the César Awards, including the César Award for Best Film, which it lost to the Best Picture winner The Artist.

Directed by The Illusionist and Limitless filmmaker, Neil Burger, the film also stars Nicole Kidman.

The Evolution of Bradley Cooper, From ‘Sex in the City’ to ‘A Star Is Born’ (Photos)
“He’s the kind of hot where, trust me, when he’s in front of you, you would just grab your ankles,” Amy Schumer said about Bradley Cooper in her “Saturday Night Live” monologue. And yet of course, Cooper has gone from relative obscurity and bit parts on television to playing perfect asshole types to now being looked at as a bona fide auteur after his directorial debut. Cooper’s good looks, charm and humor have kept him out of action hero roles and superhero tights and made him better suited to play over-eager boyfriends and charismatic jerks. His latest film “A Star is Born” has him playing opposite Lady Gaga and channeling Eddie Vedder. Here’s Cooper’s evolution across the years.

Bradley Cooper’s very first acting role was in the second season of “Sex and the City,” where he had a quick-fling with Carrie Bradshaw.

‘The Upside’ Trailer: Kevin Hart Goes Indie With Help From Bryan Cranston and Nicole Kidman

‘The Upside’ Trailer: Kevin Hart Goes Indie With Help From Bryan Cranston and Nicole Kidman
Kevin Hart has conquered the box office with mainstream studio comedies like “Ride Along,” “Get Hard,” and “Night School,” which just topped the box office with $27 million. However, the comedian is shaking things up in 2019 with a detour to indies and more dramatic fare with “The Upside.” The film is the English-language remake of the popular French hit “The Intouchables.”

The Upside” centers around the growing friendship between a wealthy paraplegic man (Cranston) and the ex-criminal assigned to be his caretaker (Hart). The movie was originally set to be released by The Weinstein Company and premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, but it was sold to Stx Entertainment earlier this year in the midst of TWC filing for bankruptcy.

The film marks the latest directorial effort from Neil Burger, best known for directing “Limitless” and “Divergent.” The Weinstein Company was behind the U.S. distribution for “The Intouchables” in

Bradley Cooper Says He Once Lost a Role Because He Wasn't ''F--kable''

Bradley Cooper Says He Once Lost a Role Because He Wasn't ''F--kable''
Apparently not everyone agrees that Bradley Cooper's face was made for the big screen. As one of the most popular A-list actors today, often recognized for his attractive looks, Copoer says he did not have quite the same reputation at the start of his career. He reveals in an interview with W Magazine, "I've always been an underdog. I was always operating under the lens of not really being seen as the 'main guy.'" Cooper's statement is surprisingly contrary from the roles Hollywood has recruited him to play, especially after critically-acclaimed and widely beloved performances in box office hits such as The HangoverLimitless, and Silver Linings...

‘Murphy Brown’ Review: The Original Nasty Woman Is Back With a Much-Needed Roar

  • Indiewire
As with so many recent revivals and remakes, some things are best left in the past. However, if any show is suited for these times, it’s “Murphy Brown.” It was always an idiosyncratic, politically engaged sitcom and, given the state of current events, it is thus a genuine delight to have Candice Bergen back as the uncompromising yet flawed reporter, angry as hell and ready for a fight.

Creator Diane English brings the show about the making of a television news show into 2018 by having Murphy, accompanied by longtime colleagues Frank Fontana (Joe Regalbuto) and Corky Sherwood (Faith Ford), anchor a cable news morning show — one that happens to be in direct competition with a show hosted by Murphy’s adult son Avery (Jake McDorman) on the “Wolf” Network.

It may be a sitcom shot weeks in advance, Murphy and her team very much live in our world. Episode 2 of the revival,
