Ben Affleck As Batman: Hollywood's Best Reactions









(Kidding.) Josh Gad declared the casting was "genius!" while Richard Dreyfus joked he was up for the role, tweeting: "You read for a part, you feel good about it, you feel confident, then they cast Ben Affleck." Others recommended pairings with old Affleck collaborators, with British actor Robert Kazinsky suggesting Matt Damon for the Joker source and film critic Stephen Whitty rather unkindly opiningJennifer Lopez should be cast as Catwoman to "torpedo the whole thing." As for Affleck, he has yet to tweet. But a Ben Affleck Batman parody Twitter account popped up and quickly amassed 12,000 followers. It's been sending messages worthy of a superhero: "I am proud to serve the people of Gotham. And the people are proud to have me."

The spectacular rise and surprising exit of a Hollywood executive




The park near Paris opened in 1992, but only after delays and cost overruns. It was losing money, and Disney, which held a 49% stake in the property's holding company, looked to refinance the venture. Starting in 1993, Nanula led negotiations with European banks that resulted in the restructuring of a roughly $4-billion debt, with the banks agreeing to a three-year postponement on paying back the principal. Nanula then brokered the sale of a 10% interest in Euro Disney to Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia. The maneuvers gave Disney time to turn the property into a success.

Angie Harmon: A 'liberal Republican' in Hollywood




Where did that come from? Ben Urwand: Everyone thinks of Nazis as the first great villains on the screen, but in the 1930s this simply wasnt true. The reason most people think of Hollywood as fiercely anti-Nazi is because of the films that came out in 1941 through 1945classic movies like Casablanca (1942) and Foreign Correspondent (1940). I think around 60 percent of all of Hollywoods products during that period make some reference to the war. Theres also this myth that Warner Brothers crusaded against Nazism throughout the 1930s, but thats not true. Based on my findings, Warner Brothers was trying to do business in Germany, like everyone else, but wasnt successful. They didnt make anti-Nazi film Confessions of a Nazi Spy until 1939, six full years after they were kicked out of the German market.

Kanye West Took Obama's Remarks About Him & Kim Kardashian As A Compliment!




Lee says that's "completely wrong." One of ShoeDazzle's investors, Lightspeed Venture Partner's Jeremy Lieu, told VentureWire that ShoeDazzle is currently worth "well north of $30 million." "It was less of a question of, 'Is the valuation lower than last time?' than, 'Was it the right decision for the company right now?'" he said. Polaris Ventures, another ShoeDazzle investor, has not returned a request for comment. Goldenberg and Lee have known each other a long time, and for that reason they say the deal has been "in the making for about four years." "ShoeDazzle launched, then JustFab. We always competed as friends," Lee told Business Insider yesterday. He also said acquisition talks sped up "a little bit" because his company was eyeing a new round of funding.

Revenues remain far smaller than in North America, but China looks set for another record year as screens are added rapidly, cinemas expand into more cities and themes switch from martial arts to depictions of ordinary people.

51 Pieces of Movie Trivia You May Not Know




A scene from "The United States of Football." (Handout / August 21, 2013) Also See more stories X By Robert Abele August 22, 2013, 9:00 a.m. One way to describe the NFL's handling of concussions and their debilitating effects on football players studies have pointed to brain-altering consequences such as CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) is as a costly fumble. Whether it's the type of misstep that could change the outcome of the sport is another matter, one that filmmaker Sean Pamphilon wrestles with in his documentary "The United States of Football." Beginning with the question of whether he should allow his young son to play the sport, Pamphilon talks to concerned doctors, questioning players, shell-shocked wives of the injured, coaches lamenting their violent pastime being watered down, and journalists/sportscasters. The result, regrettably, is a structural, chronological mess of information and emotion, so chaotically shot and edited to move from stat to image to sound bite that it suffers from its own concentration issues. (Why so much time on ex-player Kyle Turley's music career?) Though the occasional grim nugget of thought-provoking information emerges helmets so safety-engineered, for example, they give players a dangerously unwarranted sense of invincibility it's impossible to keep track of the timeline of medical discoveries, haphazard mismanaging of the issue, players' responses and so on.

?Austenland,? movie review




(Though even her story line is marred by a cheap, unnecessary joke in which a mean girl is made to evacuate her body from both ends at once.) As in the first film, it also doesn't help that as a performer Taylor-Johnson is a charisma-free zone. Wadlow also expands slightly the role of amateur superhero Colonel Stars and Stripes, played by Jim Carrey . The increasingly un-fun actor is a rather poor substitute for the madcap performance of Nicolas Cage in the first film as Hit-Girl's father. Carrey recently declared he would not be promoting "Kick-Ass 2" due to a crisis of conscience regarding the film's violence. Not to be overly cynical about this change of heart, but Carrey got more notice, for himself and the film, by not participating. Anyway, he needn't have worried. The sequel's violence feels soft-pedaled compared with the first film, continually shying away from being too graphic and with little of the gleeful revelry that give the first "Kick-Ass" its energy and punch.

10 Powerful Quotes From The Steve Jobs Movie And What They Teach Us About Leadership




Ashton Kutcher likes this quote so much he used it in a short speech at a recent award show, explaining that its one of the most profound things he learned while preparing for the role as Steve Jobs. The quote itself is taken from a rare 1995 interview for the Santa Clara Valley Historical Association. The entire clip is available here on YouTube. The rest of the quote is equally as profound: When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life and try not to bash into the walls too muchthats a very limited life. Life can be click much broader once you discover one simple facteverything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than youshake off this erroneous notion that life is there and youre just going to live in it versus make your mark upon it.

Movie review: 'Paranoia' has bells and whistles but glitches too




Ultimately the quieter moments are what kept me interested. Whitaker's combination of humiliation and held-back dignity when Cecil is turned down for a raise is as subtle as it is masterful. And when The Butler forgoes serving up its contrived and over-cooked race heart-to-hearts, it manages to create some authentic "A-Ha Moments." In the beginning of the film, Cecil explains what it was like to be a black man in the 1920s: "Any white man could kill any of us at any time and not be punished for it. The law was not on our side. The law was against us." The moment reverberates through the theater, and the long nine decades of work and resistance between the bad old 1920s Cecil describes and the 2010s of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin seem like only the start of an ever-ongoing struggle. The Butler regularly reminds us of how far we have come in terms of race relations and equality and then knocks us on the ass with how far we haven't come. Daniels said one of his challenges was "not making the film feel self-important," but that's ridiculous. Anything with this scope and subject matter is going to feel self-important because it is important.

East (Ricky Whittle), a soft-porn actor with the hots for another guest (Georgia King), and theres a stableboy/chauffeur (Bret McKenzie) who views this all with a jaded eye. Theyre all actors, so Janes romance with any of them will be fictional until, of course, it isnt.

So if you were looking to watch Breaking Bad, Matcha.tv could point out that it's available to stream on Netflix, for purchase on iTunes, airing on AMC and so on. If you wanted to check out another show, it might point you towards Hulu or Amazon Video or your cable provider instead. Basically, with whatever movie or TV show you wanted to watch, Matcha would show you the streaming services and online stores you could watch them at.

You just talk to Kinect about the show you want kris humphries kim kardashian to watch and you'll see everything you can watch, regardless of the source.
