Netflix-Weinstein Co. Joint Golden Globes Party Discontinued

12 hours ago

One of the most prominent Golden Globes after-parties is no more.

Netflix and The Weinstein Co. co-hosted a black-tie bash in a tent adjacent to the Beverly Hilton, where the Globes ceremony takes place, in January of 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. It was one of the more coveted tickets of a night packed with parties, in part because many of the biggest names from film, television and media — from Bono and Jennifer Lopez to Jeff Bezos — could be counted on to show up and rub shoulders with hosts Ted Sarandos, Bob Weinstein and Harvey Weinstein.

Channing Tatum is an adventurous Yeti in the first trailer for Smallfoot.

The Warner Bros. animated movie turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti named Migo (Tatum) finds something he thought didn’t exist — a human, which the Yeti community refers to as a "smallfoot."

"It's a terrifying creature with perfect white teeth and breath that just smells all minty fresh," he explains in confusion. "And the only hair it has on its entire body is on the top of its head!"

'Rodents of Unusual Size': Film Review

14 hours ago

Rodents the size of large raccoons, sporting webbed feet and large orange teeth. Sounds like the stuff of nightmares, but the animal in question, nutria, prove surprisingly endearing in Chris Metzler, Jeff Springer and Quinn Costello's documentary that recently received its world premiere at Doc NY. Depicting the resilience of both the nutria and the Louisianans who've endured their presence for many years, Rodents of Unusual Size proves enjoyably quirky and informative.

The nutria were imported to Louisiana during the Depression because it was thought that their fur would prove desirable and provide income. Unfortunately, the animals escaped the fur »

'Le Brio': Film Review

14 hours ago

The inspirational teacher movie has never really been a staple of French cinema. From classics like Jean Vigo’s Zero for Conduct and Francois Truffaut’s The 400 Blows, which depicted schoolteachers as cruel taskmasters maintaining a draconian sense of order, to contemporary comic hits like Les Profs series, which depicts them as total idiots, there are few films that make you want to sit down in a classroom and learn.

Yet while there may be no French equivalent to Dead Poets Society or Stand and Deliver, there have been a handful of uplifting school movies released over the past years, starting »

14 hours ago

Mexico-born actress Natalia Cordova-Buckley is known for her role as YoYo Rodriguez on ABC's Agents of Shield, and voices iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo in Pixar's Coco.

There I stand, in the middle of the playground swallowing my voice. I'm six years old, and minutes earlier my classmates had declared, "Let’s play tag. Boys against girls. 1, 2, 3, go!"

The girls take off running, our arms flailing in the air, the boys right behind us. The other girls scream, their voices screeching, and I scream as best I can, the only way I can: low and husky.

How Angelina Jolie Battled Snakes and Land Mines to Depict War-Torn Cambodia in 'First They Killed My Father'

16 hours ago


Loung Ung was 5 years old in 1975 when the soldiers marched into her city. "That day, they were smiling," says the human rights activist. "People were screaming, 'The war is over! The war is over!' I didn't know we had been in a war. But they were wearing black shirts and pants, and that was different for us because Cambodia is a very colorful culture; we'd wear bright colors. My first thought was, 'If they are so happy, why are they all in black?' "
