During his Saturday Comic-Con panel, writer and actor Max Landis announced that he is composing a script for a Warner Brothers full-length feature on Pepe Le Pew. Pepe, if your memory fails you, is the amorous French skunk from Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies who never learned the word “consent.”
Italian things and American things make for a wonderful pairing. You can find that joyous combination in both the Iso Grifo, with its gorgeous Italian styling and American V8 engine. It is beauty, it is class, it is everything sacred in this world. It is also in the 1975 Diana Ross epic Mahogany, where she and Anthony…
At the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday night, Judd Apatow presented Amy Schumer with the MVP Award, but not before taking the opportunity to call out the odd categories at the Golden Globes (The Martian is inexplicably categorized as a comedy, and—“I have an Asian man in my movie, can I be a foreign film now?”). He…
Grace Coddington, creative director at Vogue and fashion’s true breakout star, is about to become an even bigger name than she’s ever been before. The style icon and former model has just sold the rights to her memoir Grace to A24.
“Magic,” the biggest hit from 1980’s Xanadu, is somewhat unheralded as an empowerment anthem. One of that year’s most popular songs, its slinky John Farrar guitar line lent itself to the narrative told by the film—which is, obviously, that Olivia Newton John’s character Kira is a daughter of Zeus come to life via a…
A new report by the Media, Diversity & Social Change Initiative finds that Hollywood-produced movies are still overwhelming white and male. The study, “Inequality in 700 Popular Films,” describes “epidemic” in the lack of diversity. The New York Times’ Manohla Dargis has the breakdown:
Marielle Heller’s The Diary of a Teenage Girl (based on on Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel of the same name) is a lot of things: It’s vulgar, it’s sexual, it’s occasionally hard to watch, but above all else, it’s one of the best films of the year.
Welcome to the first edition of the Sploid Short Film Festival, a celebration of great storytelling and awesome eye candy. We will select the best short films of 2015 in the next five months leading to a November award ceremony at Gawker Media’s theater on Fifth Avenue in New York.
Good news, cinephiles. You have one big chance to see all the 2015 Academy Award Best Picture nominees in a theater before Oscar night.
Magical spirit stick sisters Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are back in their first movie together since Baby Mama and judging from this way-too-short look at it, it's probably going to be hilarious.
Ever wonder what it's like to knock boots with Brad Pitt or Lou Diamond Phillips (the latter, yes, many times)? Laura Grady's done it...or at least she did it with their body doubles, during her long career of having sex as a stand-in.
When you think about classic Chinese martial arts films (because I know you do all the time), usually, heavy hitting actors like Bruce Lee, Gordon Liu, Jackie Chan, even Lau Kar-leung immediately come to mind. But what about women martial artists? Turns out, there are a lot of them. And they are the epitome of badass.
It seems that the filmmakers behind the Magic Mike sequel had a wee bit of trouble getting some extras to stay on set, because they just couldn't quite handle all of the sexiness and dong.
It's probably not a secret that filming a sex scene in front of a bunch of people for a movie is not as sensual and intimate as it looks in the final product. But this video really drives it home.
For as long as there have been movies, there have been damsels in distress. Whether we're tied to train tracks or dangling out of windows for dear life, us gals can't seem to stay the hell out of trouble. Thank goodness there's always been a movie hero to hold off on saving the world just long enough to swing on by…
Just like Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally, some people like to read the last page of the book first ("That way, in case I die before I finish, I know how it ends," Harry tells Sally). For some, it makes it easier to get through a story knowing what you're going to end up with. Not everybody can handle the stress…
Amy Adams is starring in a movie directed by Tim Burton about a woman whose husband tricked the world into believing he was the one behind her artwork.
What were your major accomplishments at 14? Mine was getting my locker moved closer to my best friend, Alexa (because we had important INXS-related notes to share with each other, OK?) For most teens it's getting straight A's or winning a debate tournament. But none of that was good enough for 14-year-old Emily…
Celebrated thespian woodsprite Shailene Woodley has yet another new movie coming out and this one tackles with some dark family drama.
Could this be the moment that breaks my brain as far as its capacity to contain adorable news? It might be.
