Listen: Nina Dobrev Is Tired of Getting Vampire Scripts and Wants to Star in a Show Like ‘Big Little Lies’

  • Variety
It’s been a little more than two years since the surprise conclusion of HBO’s “Big Little Lies” Season 1. But for actress Nina Dobrev, currently starring on the CBS sitcom “Fam,” that finale still resonates.

“That finale episode was so powerful, especially because of the journey that all of those characters had gone on up until that point,” Dobrev told Variety‘s “My Favorite Episode” podcast. “I think that it was a perfect episode all around. Everything got wrapped up, the questions were answered, all of the characters found resolve, other than Perry (Alexander Skarsgård), but that’s Ok. We don’t want him to have resolve.”

Big Little Lies” was originally conceived as a one-time limited series, based on the best selling book by Liane Moriarty. But the drama was such a phenomenon, winning eight Emmy Awards, that it’s now set to return for a second season later this year.

Review: Five Feet Apart aimlessly wallows in teen love through sickness, sweetness and sappiness despite its good intentions

One can never have enough treacly teen romancers that dutifully pander to their youthful fanbase, correct? Director/producer Justin Baldoni's two-hour saccharine-coated sudser Five Feet Apart does not miss a sentimental beat when conveying its mawkish message about compromised young love at the menacing hands of terminal illness. The Clearasil crowd--at least those that will be enticed by Baldoni's melodramatic muck--should feel rather manipulated by the film's ailing version of Romeo and Juliet. Themes of teenaged pretty people, the "fill in the blank" type of sickness at hand, and an unapologetic attraction between said inflicted youngsters make for the  foundation of the teary-eyed tendencies in Five Feet Apart. Recent teen love stories regarding romance and illness such as 2014's The Fault in Our Stars, 2017's Everything, Everything and this year's Then Came You do indeed tug...

Regis Philbin Says Kathie Lee Gifford Was “Best Part Of My TV Life” As Pal Bids ‘Today’ Goodbye

Regis Philbin Says Kathie Lee Gifford Was “Best Part Of My TV Life” As Pal Bids ‘Today’ Goodbye
Audience members at Kathie Lee Gifford’s final Today episode this morning each got a Carnival Cruise — and the cruise line got some serious plugging — but Gifford herself got a sweet send-off after 11 years on the job from an old pal: Regis Philbin.

The 87-year-old Philbin — Gifford’s co-host on the syndicated Live with Regis and Kathie Lee from 1988-2000 — sent a video message to mark Gifford’s final day as co-host, with Hoda Kotb, of Today‘s fourth hour. (Jenna Bush Hager takes Gifford’s spot Monday.)

In a day of heartfelt tributes and copious tears, the kicker, no doubt, was Philbin, that once-ubiquitous TV presence little seen on screen these days. Kotb set up the moment by noting, “We couldn’t have a goodbye celebration without hearing from a very special person, so let’s take a look.”

Said Philbin, “Kathie Lee, you want to know the best part of my life?

What’s New on DVD in March: ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’ ‘Burning,’ ‘Kingdom of the Spiders’ and More

  • The Wrap
After writing the DVD Obscura column for years at Movies.com, TheWrap’s Film Reviews Editor Alonso Duralde brings it to its new home. In an age where niche and classic movies are harder and harder to find via traditional streaming services, it’s still worth maintaining a collection of physical media that can’t disappear from the internet (or even from your own online library). Each month, Duralde highlights new DVD, Blu-ray and 4K releases in six categories: Indie, Foreign, Documentary, Grindhouse, Classics and TV.

Both hilarious and heartbreaking, “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” (20th Century Fox Home Entertainment) may be one of the best films ever made about the plight of the writer — whether it’s the agony of having to be her own publicist or the realization that she’s most valued for her skill at mimicking the voices of other authors, Lee Israel (the

Film Review: ‘Then Came You’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Then Came You’
Director Peter Hutchings’ “Then Came You” isn’t a movie for cynics. It’s for romantics — or at least teen sleepover parties. Though it has many of the qualities that made teen terminal-illness weepies “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Me, Earl and the Dying Girl” work, Hutchings’ dramedy eschews much of those films’ sincerity and intimacy in favor of sap and saccharine.

Withdrawn 19-year-old Calvin Lewis (Asa Butterfield) is fearful of most things in life — particularly because he thinks he’s dying. He’s convinced his dad (David Koechner) that he needs an expensive litany of medical testing. Despite the results turning up negative for every illness, Calvin is sure he’s sick and journals everything from his daily temperature to the size of a mole on his chest. Concerned older brother Frank (Tyler Hoechlin) has tried in vain to pull the hypochondriac out of his depressive funk, but his attempts have failed miserably.

Review: ‘Then Came You’ Puts a Spin on Rom-Com Tropes in Empathetic Ways

The premise behind Then Came You is a tough sell. A hypochondriac attends a support group for people dying of cancer, befriends one said person, and helps her fulfill a demented bucket list while allowing her lack of boundaries to shove him into the arms of the woman he’s been too afraid to ask out. It’s a sort of rom-com spin on Fight Club‘s Jack and Marla getting off on others’ sorrow for the tween sect. There will be initial confusion at the film turning an incurable disease cutesy, disdain for its apparent use of death as an opportunistic avenue towards confidence, and revulsion in thinking the filmmakers might turn the tables and have their lead fall for the wildly eccentric girl who’ll be dead by the end.

Here’s the thing, though. While director Peter Hutchings and writer Fergal Rock have very much delivered the material that allows this weariness,

“Then Came You” Brings Quirk To A Teenager Tale Of Terminal Illness And Romance

It’s a little weird that there’s a multitude of films where teenagers fall in love, while at least one is sick. Usually, it’s cancer, though any terminal illness will do. These movies, largely based off of Young Adult books, run the gamut from cliched to heartbreaking. Beyond their Ya roots, however, they do hit on some of the things that make a cinematic romance work. In the case of Then Came You, the story doesn’t really trend any new ground, but the quirky chemistry of the leads help string things together. Though flawed, it ultimately charms its way into your good graces. The film is a romantic comedy centered on two individuals with very specific medial issues. Meeting at a support group, teenager cancer sufferer Skye (Maisie Williams), befriends Calvin (Asa Butterfield), an older teen who she thinks also has the terminal illness. However, the 19 year old is actually a hypochondriac,

If You Don't Recognize Sex Education's Otis, You Haven't Been Paying Attention

If You Don't Recognize Sex Education's Otis, You Haven't Been Paying Attention
He may have the same piercing baby blues as The End of the F***ing World's Alex Lawther and The Good Doctor's Freddie Highmore, but believe it or not, neither Lawther nor Highmore is the actor who plays Otis Milburn on the Netflix series Sex Education. Otis - an inexperienced high school student who decides to team up with a bad girl and open an underground sex therapy clinic at school, thanks to the advice bestowed on him by his sex therapist mother - is actually played by Asa Butterfield, and if you don't recognize his name, then you should. The 21-year-old English actor began his career at the ripe age of 9, and we have a feeling that Sex Education is not the first time you've seen him on the screen.

Review: Then Came You is a vibrant look at friendship and romance set against poignant quirkiness and quiet despair

There are countless manipulative, saccharine-coated teen romancers that aimlessly bask in cliched conventions of youth-oriented stagnation and alienation. Thankfully, the new year of 2019 starts off on a decent note by offering a different kind of upbeat teen romance genre that has legitimate heart, wit, and gentle substantive pathos. In director Peter Hutchings's ("The Outcasts") quirky-minded yet solidly conceived dramedy Then Came You the sentiment is blatantly clear about living for the moment and valuing the little things that matter despite the size of the adversity. Then Came You does not necessarily break ground in its perception of youthful love and friendship but it manages to promote a genuine feeling of comfort and consciousness. Hutchings's nifty gem is a profound combination of amusement and sorrow set against a playful...
