'Logan' Honest Trailer Enlists Ryan Reynolds to Pitch 'Old Man Deadpool'

48 minutes ago

Honest Trailers is celebrating its 200th trailer with some Old Man Logan style.

Like legitimately great movies such as The Dark Knight before it, Honest Trailers admits it has trouble making fun of Logan, but it tries its best anyway — noting that instead of facing off against Sabretooth and the Silver Samurai, Logan (Hugh Jackman) must battle failing eyesight and other ailments of aging.

When the Honest Trailers narrator gets stuck with more things to say, he calls up Deadpool (guest star Ryan Reynolds) and attempts to bait him into mocking the movie. No dice.

'The Florida Project': Film Review | Cannes 2017

3 hours ago

Aside from having an exceptional gift for finding beauty in disenfranchised outsider existences, director Sean Baker also has a special feeling for female friendship — tracing the unlikely connection that develops between a porn actress and a lonely octogenarian widow in Starlet; the scrappy loyalty of two transgender prostitutes in Tangerine; and now in The Florida Project, the infectious joy and shared summer adventures of a pair of six-year-old girls living in neighboring budget motels, who create their own magic kingdom across the poverty line from Walt Disney World, Orlando.

‘24 Frames’: Film Review | Cannes 2017

4 hours ago

Cinema is truth at 24 frames a second, taught Godard, and that might be the tagline for 24 Frames, the final film of Abbas Kiarostami, which he edited and mixed before his untimely death last July. Based on his work as a photographer, the film unfolds as a series of 24 numbered sketches, each offering the fixed frame view of a scene from nature. The sheer purity of the imagery is entrancing and puts it among his finest, most uplifting works. But it is neither narrative nor documentary, and many audiences will see it as more art installation than film, suggesting »

'After the War' ('Dopo la guerra'): Film Review | Cannes 2017

5 hours ago

The tranquil life of a former left-wing terrorist from Italy who started anew in France is upended when the law preventing his extradition is unexpectedly lifted in the captivating drama After the War (Dopo la guerra). Moving back and forth between the man hiding out in the southern boondocks with his moody, France-raised teenage daughter and the morose mother and sister he left behind in Italy — and with both families clearly impacted by the actions stemming from the lead’s radical idealism several decades earlier — this is intelligent and emotionally accessible fare that fuses the individual and the political »

How 'The Temple of Doom' Changed the MPAA Ratings System

5 hours ago

When fans think of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, the first scene that likely comes to mind is the removal of a still-beating heart during a human sacrifice while the Thugs worship the goddess Kali. 

It was graphic. It was scary. And more than anything else, it looked real. 

It was that moment — among other dark, disturbing images (think: sacrifice victim burned alive) in the second installment of the Steven Spielberg and George Lucas adventure series — that upset parents, who felt the film's PG rating from the Motion Picture Association of America was too lenient. Due to the outcry, Spielberg decided there »

5 hours ago

The Walt Disney Company is looking to cage a high-stakes lawsuit that accuses the studio of copying work to create the Oscar-winning animation film Zootopia. On Monday, Disney brought a motion to dismiss a complaint from Esplanade Productions and characterized the lawsuit as "just another example in a long history of plaintiffs coming out of the woodwork after a motion picture has achieved critical and financial success to claim credit — and proceeds — where none is due."

A California federal judge will decide whether Esplanade gets to move forward on its claim that Gary L. Goldman pitched work »

Entertainment One Full-Year Earnings Fall on Film Business Restructuring

Entertainment One on Tuesday posted lower full-year earnings, even as revenue rose, driven by a big write-down to revamp its film division to focus on digital content.

'Montparnasse Bienvenue' ('Jeune femme'): Film Review | Cannes 2017

8 hours ago

A young woman — or jeune femme as the French title helpfully notes — tries to make something of her life in Montparnasse Bienvenue, the admirably free-flowing debut feature from writer-director Leonor Serraille. Set in the Parisian Left-Bank neighborhood of the title and made with an almost entirely female crew, this loose-limbed, character-focused film is a celebration of a red-haired free spirit that, however, doesn’t skimp on life’s darker sides. Its Cannes Un Certain Regard berth should launch the film’s international festival career, while adventurous distributors, especially in Francophile territories, will want to take a look as well. As an added bonus, »

'Baywatch': Film Review

11 hours ago

Andy Warhol got it wrong. It’s not that everybody will be world-famous for 15 minutes; it's that all moderately successful, mediocre television shows are destined to be reborn as feature films. The latest example of the distressing trend attempts to wink knowingly at its inspiration. But a character acknowledging that the proceedings resemble an “entertaining but far-fetched TV show” isn’t enough to make Baywatch anything more than the cynical cash grab that it is.

That the film’s guiding creative ethos was apparently to push the envelope and go for an “R” rating becomes painfully clear. The endless profusion of »

Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra and the cast of Baywatch indulged in some good, clean fun Monday night at a special screening of the Paramount film in New York City. Despite plunging necklines on the red carpet and “cadaver penis” jokes onscreen, the actors reassured the public that the reboot isn’t too raunchy for fans of the original series.

“Yes, it’s an R-rated comedy, but hey, it’s about time we saw a good penis in a movie!” Alexandra Daddario told The Hollywood Reporter at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema. Kelly Rohrbach also shot down the notion: “Can anything be too raunchy in »

Why Former 'Baywatch' Star David Hasselhoff Is Big in Germany

17 hours ago

The love affair between David Hasselhoff and the Germanic people has, for three decades now, been one of the great riddles of global pop culture.

Why, of all American entertainers, does the 64-year-old Baywatch and Knight Rider star so entrance the citizens of Deutschland? And not so much as an actor but as a singer? There’s even a joke about it in the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie: Chris Pratt’s character remembers how as a child he used to fantasize that his father was David Hasselhoff, but he never saw him because he was always — cue rimshot — »
