  • The Playlist
The world’s most famous mystery writer, Agatha Christie, is back in the spotlight in a big way.

However, that movie may be a bit of a way off, so if you need another fix of murderous thrills, it’s time to put “Crooked House” on your radar.

Glenn Close Emotionally Declares If Christopher Reeve Was Alive, Robin Williams 'Would Be Too'

Glenn Close Emotionally Declares If Christopher Reeve Was Alive, Robin Williams 'Would Be Too'
Glenn Close says that Christopher Reeve and Robin Williams' friendship was so strong that she believes if the Superman star was still alive, he could have saved Williams. 

The 70-year-old actress got emotional while delivering a touching speech at the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation's annual "A Magical Evening" Gala in New York City on Thursday, where she reflected on the late actors and her friendship with them both. 

"My first connection to Christopher Reeve was through Robin Williams, when we were shooting The World According to Garp. It was the summer of 1982, when we were filming on Fishers Island," Close began. "On Friday evenings, Chris would literally swoop in, piloting his own plane, scoop Robin up, and away they would fly for the weekend. On Sunday, late afternoon, Chris would swoop back in and deliver Robin back -- I have to say a little worse for wear."

"Those were the heady days for them both," she continued

Tearful Glenn Close Says Christopher Reeve Could Have Saved Robin Williams

Tearful Glenn Close Says Christopher Reeve Could Have Saved Robin Williams
Glenn Close got emotional on Thursday while recalling her dear friend Christopher Reeve, saying that had he not passed away, his longtime pal Robin Williams would still be alive as well. Reeve, best known for his role in the 1978 movie Superman, died of heart failure at age 52 in 2004, nine years after he suffered a horse-riding accident that crushed his spinal cord and rendered him paralyzed from the neck down. Williams took his own life in 2014. He was 63. The actors were roommates at the Juilliard School in New York City in the '70s and remained close friends after college. "Their friendship, their connection, is the stuff of legend. It not only endured, but...

Competition: Win ‘The Incredible Shrinking Man’ from Arrow Video!

To celebrate the Blu-ray release of The Incredible Shrinking Man, available on Blu-ray from 13th November, we have a copy of the film on Blu-ray up for grabs, courtesy of Arrow Video!

Based on the novel by the massively influential sci-fi and horror writer Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, The Martian Chronicles), with a script adapted by Matheson himself, and directed by Fifties sci-fi king Jack Arnold (Creature From The Black Lagoon), this is rightly regarded as being one of the finest science-fiction films of all time, a critically-acclaimed smash hit that currently has a 90 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes. Genuinely thrilling, and, as Scott’s plight becomes more desperate, tense and gruelling, the film features superbly realised special effects that bely the era, and the setting Scott finds himself in – filled with oversized household objects that suddenly become threatening and dangerous – takes on a wonderfully surreal atmosphere.

'The most original thing I have seen in forever': do Amazon's new pilots deliver?

The streaming site has received criticism for its scripted shows, but this year’s crop of new comedies may have produced a bona fide hit for the Bezos machine

Amazon Prime Video needs a hit. Badly. Last month it was reported that the streaming service rejected the chance to bid for award-winning hits like The Handmaid’s Tale and Big Little Lies, instead opting to make a Woody Allen series so unutterably cackhanded that I fear even mentioning it by name will put a curse on my family.

Gloria Allred to Lead SAG-aftra Panel Discussion on Sexual Harassment
Attorney Gloria Allred and SAG-aftra President Gabrielle Carteris will lead a panel discussion for guild members about sexual harassment and abuse.

The event, to be held on Nov. 14 at the union’s national headquarters in Los Angeles, is only open to dues-current members with no guests allowed. It’s titled “Beyond the Headlines: A Conversation on Sexual Harassment and Abuse in the Entertainment Industry.”

Allred has represented several women who have accused disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, including Heather Kerr, Louisette Geiss, and Mimi Haleyi. SAG-aftra blasted Weinstein on Oct. 9, calling his behavior “abhorrent and unacceptable.”

On Oct. 5, a story in the New York Times detailed accusations that Weinstein sexually harassed a number of women, including actress Ashley Judd. Kate Winslet, Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, and Glenn Close have all denounced the producer.

“Ms. Allred will share the facts, dispel the myths surrounding sexual harassment, and lead a discussion on empowering members to assert

75 days until Oscar nominations...

The upcoming Oscar ceremony is their 90th but guess who's having their 75th birthday this year? Oscar's bad seed step-sister The Golden Globes, that's who! We kid. We love the Globes, bad seed reference aside, in all their adorably flawed glory. What should we do to celebrate the Globes 75th birthday this year?!?

To honor their impending anniversary ceremony, here are 10 random times that the Globes were smarter than Oscar:

2010 The Social Network, Best Picture (The King's Speech won the Oscar) 2005 Brokeback Mountain, Best Picture (Crash won the Oscar) 1996-1999 Their choices for Best Supporting Actor always preferrable to Oscars!  1995 Sense & Sensibility, Best Picture (Braveheart won the Oscar) 1984 Kim Basinger was nominated for The Natural instead of Glenn Close at the Oscars for the same movie (Close is a better actress, sure, but Basinger is way better in The Natural) 1980s They recognized that Cher was a brilliant actress long

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’
It’s a sign of how little most movies channel contemporary experience that the manners and habits and attitudes of the age of Tinder have remained a relatively off-screen topic. This past January, the Sundance drama “Newness,” directed by Drake Doremus (it has yet to be released), was a designer soap opera that had a few telling observations to make about what it feels like to live your life in a digital meat market. As a movie, though, it didn’t quite take hold. The new pulp thriller “Bad Match” is darker, grimier, and more entertaining. Written and directed by David Chirchirillo, who co-wrote the scurrilous violent hipster comedy “Cheap Thrills” (2013), the movie is “Fatal Attraction” for the age of the revolving-door hook-up, and in its fevered low-budget way it’s just clever enough to do what it sets out to do. It gives toxic masculinity its just desserts.

Elizabeth McGovern Says ‘Time and the Conways’ Is a Coping Mechanism for Today’s Dark Times (Exclusive)

Elizabeth McGovern Says ‘Time and the Conways’ Is a Coping Mechanism for Today’s Dark Times (Exclusive)
After six seasons playing Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, on Downton Abbey, Elizabeth McGovern is once again the matriarch of a wealthy British family of the early 1900s in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of J. B. Priestley’s Time and the Conways. Revived for the first time since its 1938 debut, the play is a time-jumping story that is filled with optimism and hope as the family celebrates one daughter’s birthday in the present and unimaginable transformations as they face their bitter realities 19 years later. But after watching McGovern perform onstage, which just so happens to mark her first time back on Broadway since playing Ophelia in Hamlet 25 years prior, it’s clear that Mrs. Conway is anything but the seemingly perfect, presentable and understanding mother that the actress embodied on the ITV series.

“I’m finding it a little bit frightening how easy it is for me to understand this mother. I’m not sure
