Fantasia 2017: ‘Better Watch Out’ Review

Formerly known as Safe Neighborhood, I first became aware of this as it played at Fantastic Fest in 2016. Now here we are for Fantasia 2017 with distribution from Well Go USA, a new title, and a little Christmas in July spirit for those in attendance!

Indie Sales has boarded French film-maker Sophie Fillières’s high-concept comedy When Margaux Meets Margaux starring Sandrine Kiberlain as a woman in her mid-40s who meets another woman called Margaux, who is actually her younger self.

French actress Kiberlain, seen most recently in André Téchiné’s Being 17, will be in Cannes this year as president of the Caméra d’Or jury for first films.

Set against the backdrops of the Alpine resort of Les Arcs, Paris and Lyon, the picture revolves around two women both called Margaux, played by Kiberlain and Agathe Bonitzer.

Fuller House's "Summer Fun" Season 3 Will Have to Write in Jodie Sweetin's Leg Injury

Fuller House's
It was Christmas in July for Fuller House season two and summer in March for Fuller House season three. "I've only read the first two episodes, but this whole season is going to be about summer fun," Candace Cameron Bure told E! News' Carissa Culiner at the Kids Choice Awards. Filming has just started on the third installment of the Full House sequel series. The first two seasons came out within the same calendar year, with season two being shot over the summer and featuring a variety of holidays (hence Christmas in July). Production on the third season was delayed after Jodie Sweetin broke her ankle and tibia after hopping a fence to get a toy her kid had thrown over. "They have to write...

How Stephen Colbert's Rnc/DNC Coverage Underlined an Identity Crisis

How Stephen Colbert's Rnc/DNC Coverage Underlined an Identity Crisis
National conventions allow political parties to rally their base, establish their agenda and present their presidential nominee in the best light possible. So it proved oddly fitting that Stephen Colbert chose to do two weeks of live broadcasts timed to the Republican and Democratic conventions. After all, not unlike Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the Late Show host is trying to win over a nation that remains largely uncertain about him.

When CBS announced in April 2014 that Colbert, then riding high with the brilliantly funny The Colbert Report, would replace David Letterman,

Sleigher is the most recent (and reluctant) heir of the centuries old lineage to bear the title of “Santa Claus.” He’d rather slam back bourbon than glasses of milk, and blast metal instead of carols.

Stephen Colbert Revives ‘Report’ Character for Rnc, Has Musical Number & Hangs With Jon Stewart — Watch
On Monday night’s “The Late Show,” Stephen Colbert resurrected the fan-favorite “Colbert Report” character, just in time to kick off the Republican National Convention. The real Colbert seemed flabbergasted and was unable to explain the success of Trump’s campaign, so he decided to track down his buddy, Jon Stewart, for some advice. He found the former “Daily Show” host living in isolation in the woods, and told him about the news that Trump is the nominee.

Jon, listen, I know that you and your beard are very busy these days, but I’m here to tell you it’s the Republican National Convention this week,” he said to Stewart as explained the Trump situation.

Shocked by the news, Stewart replied, “The guy from ‘The Apprentice?’…The guy who filed for bankruptcy in 1991…and 2009?” Then behind Stewart the “Colbert”-version of Stephen appeared holding his signature Captain America shield,

Stephen Colbert kicked off The Late Show's special week of coverage of the Republican National Convention with a bombastic musical number celebrating the outlandish spectacle that will conclude with the nomination of Donald Trump.

Donning a straw hat and sparkling American flag vest, Colbert danced through the Ed Sullivan Theater and cheerily sang vicious lines like, "We'll see Newt, Ron and Rand / Maybe members of the Klan / But no Muslims or Latinos 'cause I think they've all been banned!"

The number also included a quick stop at Rnc headquarters

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Die Hard’ opened in theaters
July 15, 1988 must have been the day to celebrate Christmas in July because it’s the day classic Christmas movie (don’t argue) Die Hard was gifted to us. 28 years after the Die Hard hit theaters, it’s difficult to accept that the movie’s great villain is gone, and it’s wild to think about the fact that this was his first Hollywood film role — Alan Rickman was in his first movie at age 42, which makes it all the more tragic that his life and career were cut short this year. Since 1988, Bruce Willis has made four more Die Hard movies. Meanwhile, director John McTiernan’s last completed film was 2003’s Basic, and these days he’s keeping busy bashing modern blockbusters, Captain America and Mad Max: Fury Road included. Die Hard is available for purchase here on Fox Connect Other notable July 15 happenings in pop culture history: • 1963: The
