Countless remakes, sequels and revisits to decades-old franchises have popped up in recent years. The only problem? They keep flopping. Case in point: Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Charlie’s Angels reboot. Elizabeth Banks’s remake of the 1970s TV show unambiguously bombed this past weekend when it opened to a paltry $8.4 million, and the film’s failure became a controversial topic this week after Banks blamed sexism for the feature’s flop. “If this movie … [Read more...] about Why Do Reboots Keep Bombing at the Box Office?

The first half of Melancholia, the new film by controversial Danish director Lars von Trier depicts the saddest wedding in the world, a weekend in the country where all attempts at joyfulness are suffocated by a heavy cloud of gloom, largely emanating from the bride, played by Kirsten Dunst. In the second half, Dunst’s character rejoices as a planet approaches to destroy Earth and everyone on it. If the film itself is a bit dark, its publicity campaign has been even edgier—accidentally. The worldwide tour started out with director Von Trier being ejected from the Cannes Film Festival after jesting about having positive feelings for Nazis. Despite this backdrop, Kirsten Dunst radiates excitement when she comes to talk about Melancholia. And why shouldn’t she? Difficult though Melancholia may be, it is in the minds of many the most interesting film to come along in years, one certain to top many end-of-the-year Best Of lists. Nearly every frame of the film is built … [Read more...] about Kirsten Dunst on ‘Melancholia’ and Lars von Trier
Jonathan Groff lights up when he sees my iPhone voice recorder turn on. That’s the thing about Jonathan Groff. He’s very excitable. It’s adorable. It’s charming. It’s—at least, it seems—surprisingly genuine. He uses the voice memo app for “literally everything,” he swears, excitably (adorably, charmingly, genuinely) taking his out own phone and scrolling through a tour of recordings he’s made himself. “Literally everything,” it turns out, is largely messages he records as his character Kristoff from the 2013 animated Disney smash Frozen—with cameos from Kristoff’s reindeer sidekick, Sven—and sends to young fans as birthday greetings and, sadly, well wishes for medical treatments. I don’t even have to ask before he starts playing one, blushing a bit as Kristoff talks to Laila, the granddaughter of one of his father’s co-workers who was about to have surgery as part of cancer treatment. … [Read more...] about How ‘Looking’ Helped Jonathan Groff Learn to Like Being Gay
