  • In polemical 'Hillary's America,' D'Souza rakes Clinton over long-cooled coals

    In polemical 'Hillary's America,' D'Souza rakes Clinton over long-cooled coals

    Considering it’s from the same individual responsible for “2016: Obama’s America,” it should come as no surprise that Dinesh D’Souza’s “Hillary’s America” is another shrewdly timed, heavy-handed agenda in the guise of a truth-seeking, nonfiction film. But just like the avidly right-wing filmmaker’s...

  • 'Don't Worry Baby' takes high road in father-son paternity sweepstakes

    'Don't Worry Baby' takes high road in father-son paternity sweepstakes

    The terrific young actor John Magaro, so good in David Chase’s little-seen “Not Fade Away,” again brings his A-game to “Don’t Worry Baby,” a bittersweet indie comedy that marks an impressive feature writing-directing debut for Julian Branciforte.  The film’s high-concept story, one that in past...

  • The fifth 'Ice Age' cometh, but feel free to misseth

    The fifth 'Ice Age' cometh, but feel free to misseth

    Fourteen years after the first “Ice Age” animated film was a hit, the fifth installment in the franchise, “Ice Age: Collision Course,” rolls into theaters. Is it inevitable? Yes, 2012's “Ice Age: Continental Drift” was the highest-grossing animated film that year. Is it necessary? Absolutely not....

  • 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie': Bloody good summer fun

    'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie': Bloody good summer fun

    In “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” a sensible young woman asks her hard-partying grandmother to explain the endurance of a decades-long friendship, a seemingly unbreakable bond forged on champagne and mischief. “Because it’s bloody good fun,” her grandmother answers, matter-of-factly. That’s as...

  • 'Star Trek Beyond' stars on 'uncomfortable conversations,' Sulu's sexual orientation and the future

    'Star Trek Beyond' stars on 'uncomfortable conversations,' Sulu's sexual orientation and the future

    For 50 years, Gene Roddenberry’s “Star Trek” has been doing two things: enthralling audiences around the world with a vision of a future in which humanity has put aside its petty differences, and taking to the cosmos to show how that future is possible only through diversity. As has been made clear...

  • 'I was terrified': Kristen Stewart on working with Nicholas Hoult on their new movie 'Equals'

    'I was terrified': Kristen Stewart on working with Nicholas Hoult on their new movie 'Equals'

    For a long time, it seemed like Kristen Stewart was hiding. Under hoodies and flat-brimmed caps. From flashbulbs. Even her voice, because silence couldn’t betray her. Back then, when she was known as the star of the “Twilight” films, the idea of living in a world without emotion might have perhaps...

  • It's never been easy being Jason Bourne: A brief film history

    It's never been easy being Jason Bourne: A brief film history

    It’s hard to believe it’s been nine years since Matt Damon last suited up as the formidable but forgetful super-spy Jason Bourne. Now, he’s returning to his signature role, along with veteran director Paul Greengrass, for “Jason Bourne.”  The amnesiac super-agent, who first appeared in a series...

  • Director Paul Greengrass returns to Jason Bourne, bringing serious issues to escapist cinema

    Director Paul Greengrass returns to Jason Bourne, bringing serious issues to escapist cinema

    On a trip to Los Angeles about 18 months ago, the London-based filmmaker Paul Greengrass sat down to lunch at Shutters with Matt Damon and editor Christopher Rouse. The latter two had come with a stealth mission. Greengrass had long been unwilling to make his third Jason Bourne movie, and for a...

  • 'Wilderpeople' is quickly finding a summer audience

    'Wilderpeople' is quickly finding a summer audience

    It's got an awkward title and a rambunctious spirit that is difficult to accurately describe, but “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” is fast becoming the independent film word-of-mouth hit of the summer, and deservedly so. Directed by New Zealand's Taika Waititi, this wacky story of the way-unlikely alliance...

  • Garry Marshall, a consummate spinner of modern-day fairy tales

    Garry Marshall, a consummate spinner of modern-day fairy tales

    “I want the fairy tale.” You may recall that line from “Pretty Woman,” the 1990 smash hit that made Julia Roberts a star and announced Garry Marshall — already a major creative force in television with “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley” and “The Odd Couple” — as a force to be reckoned with in the...

  • Remembering Garry Marshall with hugs and affection

    Remembering Garry Marshall with hugs and affection

    When Garry Marshall died Tuesday, the first person I thought about was Julia Roberts. The actress was not one of the famed director’s three children, and in fact had no blood relation to him. But after years of working with him, she described herself as one of his “fake kids” — someone whose guidance...

  • Blame those endless Hall H lines on Jeff Walker, the man who brought Hollywood to Comic-Con

    Blame those endless Hall H lines on Jeff Walker, the man who brought Hollywood to Comic-Con

    In a galaxy known as New York, in a drab age before Trekkies and light sabers, there lived a curious boy who liked comic books, time travel and Elvis. He read Isaac Asimov and tuned in to John Zacherle, this Phantom of the Opera-type guy with scraggly hair and a creepy laugh who introduced horror...

  • Fourth 'Star Trek' film will unite Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth

    Fourth 'Star Trek' film will unite Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth

    With “Star Trek Beyond” set to hit theaters July 22, Paramount Pictures announced Monday that the rebooted sci-fi series would boldly go to a fourth installment. According to the studio, the story will bring Chris Pine’s Capt. James T. Kirk together with his father, George, a starship captain who...

    New Han Solo confirmed, and details from 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' emerge

    The three-day “Star Wars” celebration, aptly titled “Star Wars Celebration,” closed in London on Sunday with a few fun announcements, including official confirmation of the next Han Solo.  It’d been speculated for months that the new, younger Han Solo would be “Hail, Caesar!” actor Alden Ehrenreich. But...

    'Spa Night,' 'Kiki' and 'Major!' win top awards at Outfest Los Angeles

    Outfest Los Angeles awarded nearly 20 honors Sunday to films that screened at theaters throughout the city during the 11-day film festival. Major awards went to “Spa Night,” “Major!” and “Kiki.” “Spa Night,” from director Andrew Ahn, was awarded with a special mention for outstanding performance...

  • Study shows lack of opportunity for disabled actors

    Study shows lack of opportunity for disabled actors

    When Hollywood discusses diversity, one community is often left out of the conversation: people with disabilities. Even in its most recent iterations, prompted by #OscarsSoWhite, differently abled people in the industry seem unable to find a seat at the table. A recent study by the Ruderman Family...

  • Sometimes I wish he would go away: The uncomfortable evolution of being a Woody Allen fan

    Sometimes I wish he would go away: The uncomfortable evolution of being a Woody Allen fan

    Sometimes lately I wish Woody Allen would just go away. And other times I can’t imagine the world without him. Every new film from him forces audiences to confront again their feelings about Allen as both artist and person, and to reexamine the evolution of those responses over time. He has gone...
