Edward Norton Speaks Out About Climate Change and Trump

10 hours ago

Edward Norton said Friday that citizen activism had the power to neutralize Donald Trump's opposition to global climate change accords.

The actor and environmental campaigner said the U.S. President's decision in early June to formally pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord was irrelevant when states such as New York and California had committed to tackling global warming at a local level.

The actor was speaking in Poland, where he noted the power of citizen activism in a reference to current mass nationwide demonstrations against moves by the government to undermine judicial independence. He said the environmental »

Ben Affleck is heading to Comic-Con this weekend to promote Warner Bros.’ upcoming Justice League movie, set for a Nov. 17 release. But how many more times is he likely to put on the Batsuit? Probably not many, if ever again.

And Matt Reeves, who will direct the studio’s still-undated (and unwritten) The Batman, has said that he means to keep Affleck in the »

Charlize Theron Skillfully Dance Battles With Jimmy Fallon

Charlize Theron and Jimmy Fallon took turns making up dance moves for a round of The Tonight Show's Dance Battle. In honor of Theron's new movie Atomic Blonde, all of the songs were from the '80s and the film's soundtrack.

Theron went first and was prompted with "slap the giraffe," which she looked at dubiously. "That's not a mistake, that's actually what you meant to write?" she asked, laughing. Nevertheless, she went out on stage and slapped an imaginary giraffe, inspiring Fallon to jealously ask, "How do you make that look cool?"

Harry Styles Gives 'Dunkirk' More Than It Bargained For

12 hours ago

An ambitious director who avoids email, cellphones and social media. A pop star with 30 million Twitter followers and legions of online fans. It might not sound like a natural fit, but One Direction star Harry Styles has emerged as a secret weapon for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk.

It's not just that Styles’ performance as a young British soldier is strong (it is). It's also that for months, Styles' fans have been mounting an impromptu publicity campaign for Dunkirk, Nolan’s World War II film that’s earned rave reviews and opens this weekend.

'Stranger Things' Director Shawn Levy on How He Plans to Lose His "Comic-Con Virginity"

13 hours ago

2017 was a year of firsts for director-producer Shawn Levy — from his first Oscar nomination for Arrival to a first Emmy nom for Netflix's Stranger Things. Levy will soon embark on another (and arguably his biggest) first... his first San Diego Comic-Con. Levy talked to The Hollywood Reporter about what he's expecting from Hall H ahead of Saturday's Stranger Things panel.

I have been told to hydrate and sleep when you can. But, I think, the worst peril that we are gonna face is getting sick of the sound of our own voices.

Comic-Con is the epicenter of passionate fandom and I think it’s »

'Landline', 'Obvious Child' Trio Talk Making Their Second Feature and '90s New York

14 hours ago

Jenny Slate, Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm have gotten really good about finding the comedy in what could easily be seen as something tragic.

The actress, writer-director and writer-producer, respectively, went from an abortion rom-com, Obvious Child, into a movie about infidelity and divorce that also happens to be a '90s-set comedy. Landline, out today, is set in 1995 New York and follows two sisters, played by Jenny Slate and relative newcomer Abby Quinn, and a mother (Edie Falco) discovering and handling the fallout of their dad/husband's (John Turturro) affair in their own unique ways.

'Who the F**k is That Guy? The Fabulous Journey of Michael Alago': Film Review

14 hours ago

Representing a growing microgenre of "they knew everybody!" documentary portraits (think of the recent Danny Says), Drew Stone's Who the F**ck is That Guy shows how total, unabashed music fandom took a nobody from New York City's far reaches to the heart of the music business. Starting off as just a kid who attended every live show he could manage, Michael Alago soon become a tastemaker who (among other things) helped introduce the world to Metallica. Despite its very modest production values and narrow scope, this friendly doc is one more small chapter in the ongoing oral history of Downtown »

Mark Rylance Says He "Would Never" Campaign For Oscar: "How Embarrassing"

19 hours ago

As the five-star reviews for Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk continue to roll in from around the world, the early Oscar buzz is already gathering steam. 

But while many agree that Nolan is deserving of a nod in the best director category (his first) and there are likely to be numerous honors for cinematography and other behind-the-camera work, among the ensemble cast, while praised, only Mark Rylance has been tipped as a possible contender for best supporting actor.

'Old Sitting' ('Sales gosses'): Film Review

21 hours ago

Each summer, a French comedy comes along that tries to to exploit its country’s sacrosanct vacation rituals, whether in the form of trailer park trash (the Camping series), nostalgia for the golden years (Nicholas on Holiday, Ducoboo 2: Crazy Vacation), camp chaos (Those Happy Days, from the makers of Intouchable), ripoffs of The Love Boat (La Croisiere) or good ol' fashioned sexism (One Wild Moment).

In the best case you get something like Jacques Tati's Monsieur Hulot's Holiday, but in most cases you get much of the above or else the latest specimen, Old Sitting (Sales gosses) — an awful »
