Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost Hold Hands While Ice Skating During SNL Sign-Off
Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost weren’t afraid to show off their newly public romance with a little televised Pda!

During the goodbye section of this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live — which was filmed at the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center — Jost, 35, and Johansson, 32, were all smiles as the SNL star wrapped his arm around the actress’ shoulder.

Although the episode was hosted by Kevin Hart, Johansson made a surprise guest appearance in the cold open as Ivanka Trump, whom she had previously portrayed in March during a mock ad for a perfume called “Complicit.”

Owen Wilson interview: Wonder, art in movies

Ben Mortimer Nov 30, 2017

Owen Wilson chats to us about Wonder, art, writing and more...

Wonder. It started life as an extraordinary book from R J Palacio, and it's now been turned into a hugely impressive film as well. Already a hit in the Us, the movie stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. And on the UK press tour for the movie, Wilson spared us some time to talk about the film...

[As I enter, I notice that Wilson is reading a book about Van Gogh. I make a comment about this just as I’m setting my Dictaphone to record]

Yeah, I just picked it up off the nightstand. But I’ve been there, to the museum in Amsterdam. Do you have a favourite Van Gogh painting?

Not particularly, Van Gogh. I’m more of a Dali fan.

Very trippy.

Have you been to any of the galleries in London while you’ve been here?

I went to go see the Basquiat show, over at the Barbican.

There was a good documentary on Basquiat recently.

My friend, [art dealer] Tony Shafrazi,

‘The Big Sick’ DVD Review

Stars: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Ray Romano, Holly Hunter, Anupam Kher | Written by Emily V. Gordon, Kumail Nanjiani | Directed by Michael Showalter

Michael Showalter, best known as an actor and writer on the Wet Hot American Summer TV series, directs this gentle culture clash comedy, based on the real-life experiences of (screenwriters) Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley).

We meet Kumail (Nanjiani) and Emily (Zoe Kazan) around 18 months before the latter is put in a coma. He’s a stand-up in a run-down comedy club; she’s a Psychology student. More of a meet-awkward than a meet-cute, his chat-up lines are cheesy and she’s kinda goofy. They hit it off, and we get the standard highlights reel from the next few months of their relationship. Then Emily discovers a box of photos of other women. These are the potential wives chosen for Kumail by his Muslim parents.

‘Daddy’s Home 2′ Review

Stars: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson, Linda Cardellini | Written by Sean Anders, John Morris | Directed by Sean Anders

There’s a scene at the end of Daddy’s Home 2, Sean Anders’ sequel to his mediocre 2015 hit, which has all the hallmarks of a classic Christmas movie climax: the characters, previously at odds, coming together for a joyous singalong. Except the song they choose is Feed the World. The Band Aid anthem – once a call for the Western world to mobilise to relieve the vast suffering in Africa – is malignly appropriated as a campy joke, hollered against a backdrop of a shamelessly product-placed cinema chain handing out free snacks to gorging Americans. It’s not even the worst scene in the film, but it does epitomise a so-called comedy which is thoughtless on multiple levels, and frequently tasteless.

Brad (Will Ferrell) and Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) are now entrenched

Taraji P. Henson Is Remaking Mel Gibson's What Women Want

Taraji P. Henson Is Remaking Mel Gibson's What Women Want
Paramount Players, the new Paramount Pictures division aimed at developing movies based on properties owned by parent company Viacom, is putting together What Men Want, a gender-swapped remake of What Women Want, the 2000 romantic comedy starring Mel Gibson, with Taraji P. Henson set to star. While it doesn't seem that there is a writer or director on board at this stage, Paramount is already putting this project on the fast track, setting a January 11, 2019 release date. The original movie starred Mel Gibson as a chauvinistic man who begins to hear what women are really thinking about, which will be turned on its ear in this remake.

The story centers on Taraji P. Henson's character, a female sports agent who is always getting bested by her male colleagues. After she gains the power to hear what men are really thinking about, she uses this unique ability to her advantage, as

Brad’S Status – Review

With awards season approaching it’s time to get serious at the multiplex, at least for some actors that may be best known for rowdy raunchy comedies. That may be the case for Ben Stiller who’s playing this flick’s title character. Mind you, there’s still some funny stuff in this story, we’re not in heavy, somber tragedy territory at all. It’s just that Ben is playing an “everyman”. a fellow that many of us know, or “down deep” the person staring back at us from the mirror. Oddly, this man is constantly reflecting on his past, his regrets, and choices. These concerns and worries make up the bulk of Brad’S Status.

The title Brad is played by Mr. Stiller. Brad Sloan is sliding toward the big “5-0” and shares a home in Sacramento, CA with his lovely wife Melanie (Jenna Fisher) and their eighteen

10 Movies Perfect for Father's Day

  • Cinelinx
We pick 10 movies that honor the fathers in our lives, but they’re also highly entertaining films that dad himself will enjoy!

Father's Day is a celebration of the fathers that have positively influenced our lives, as well as the impact of fathers on our society as a whole. To show just how important fathers can be, I selected 10 films where fathers play an important role. In selecting these films, I used two criteria. First, they are movies that celebrate all kinds of dads. Some of these movie dads may be selfish or disillusioned, some don’t have the best relationship with their kids, and some of them might seem like they are doing more harm than good. But despite their weaknesses, they all share one thing in common; an unrelenting love for their children. By contrasting different dads, I wanted these films to show us the many different ways

Exclusive: Howie Dorough on Juggling Work With Fatherhood & How His Son ‘Wants to Be the Next Backstreet Boy!’
It’s been eight years since Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough and his wife, Leigh, anxiously awaited their newborn son James' release from the Nicu at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after coming into the world six weeks premature.

So, as the Florida-based singer enjoyed a recent father-son trip back to L.A. to film the USA Network’s Big Star Little Star, the musician couldn’t help reflecting on the “strong, healthy, well-spirited boy” his son has grown into and shares that the Hollywood visit even cemented James’ dreams to follow in his footsteps.

Robert De Niro Calls Out Donald Trump’s ‘Bullsh*t’ While Receiving Chaplin Award

Robert De Niro Calls Out Donald Trump’s ‘Bullsh*t’ While Receiving Chaplin Award
Robert De Niro took dead aim at President Donald Trump during an acceptance speech for the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award in New York on Monday. After several of De Niro’s closest friends and colleagues honored him at the 44th annual Chaplin Award Gala, the iconic actor and filmmaker delivered a heartfelt speech that both paid tribute to the award’s namesake, Charlie Chaplin, while also criticizing the Trump administration for its position on issues ranging from healthcare to education to the environment.

HeyUGuys Celebrate the Home Entertainment Release of Why Him? in Style

Author: Amanda Carnac

Our good friends at Fox were nice enough to invite HeyUGuys to a private screening of Why Him? – a comedy starring Bryan Cranston and James Franco. As a self-proclaimed, former Malcolm in the Middle addict, watching Bryan Cranston act in a Meet the Fockers style movie was not an invitation that that I was likely to ever turn down.

The film is a classic case of a doting father (Cranston) meeting his daughter’s boyfriend (Franco); a hipster, tech billionaire with zero self-awareness. Considering the scriptwriter also wrote Meet the Parents and the aforementioned sequel, I can’t help but wonder what traumatising experiences he must have had with his in-laws. He uses the same formula of parents meeting potential son-in-law and clashing to the complete extreme, however this time it’s the son-in-law who takes things way too far, and that seemed to be our ethos for the screening.

‘Wizard of Lies’ Trailer: Robert De Niro Looks Like He Finally Cares Again

‘Wizard of Lies’ Trailer: Robert De Niro Looks Like He Finally Cares Again
Quick: name the most recent film in which Robert De Niro delivered a dynamite performance. Silver Linings Playbook? Maybe the original Meet the Parents? We don’t have to go as far back as 1998’s Ronin, do we? Yikes. Answering that question is far tougher than it used to be because De Niro has appeared in a ton of not-so-great […]

Tom McCarthy: the Hollywood hitmaker you've probably never heard of

He wrote Pixar’s Up and the Oscar smash Spotlight – and now he’s set his sights on teen show 13 Reasons Why. Meet the most diverse man in showbusiness (not to mention The Wire’s arch villain)

Tom McCarthy’s career encompasses everything from acting (The Wire, Meet the Parents) to directing indie hits (The Station Agent, The Visitor) and brainstorming ideas for Pixar movies (Up, Inside Out). A year ago, he was basking in the Oscars afterglow as his film Spotlight, an old-fashioned drama about the Boston Globe’s groundbreaking investigation into sexual abuse in the Catholic church, bagged Best Picture. With that sort of approbation, you can name your next project, not to mention your price – so it is startling that McCarthy has chosen the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

Does he appreciate that it looks like a surprising career move? “Um, I guess so,” he sighs. “I don

Review: All Nighter

  • JoBlo
Plot: When his daughter goes missing, her steely father teams up with her loser ex-boyfriend to find her. Review: Imagine if Meet The Parents eliminated everyone but De Niro and Stiller, took place in L.A. predominantly over the course of a single night and you'll have a very good idea of what All Nighter is all about. It's a perfectly acceptable comedy that entertains primarily... Read More...
