Judd Apatow is cool with Katherine Heigl, hints at a 'Knocked Up' sequel

It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since Judd Apatow first introduced us to Ben and Alison, the one-night stand turned unlikely parents played by Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl in the hit 2007 comedy "Knocked Up." Although the sort-of spin-off "This Is 40"...

Go drown your Trump sorrows by seeing '1984' tonight

Less than a week after Donald Trump’s inauguration, “1984” sold out on Amazon. It was a little late; it would have been nice had people read George Orwell's dystopian classic before November. Still, things have chilled out a little since then, even as giant chunks of...

Malin Akerman has a few small complaints about 'Hamilton'

Malin Akerman has a few complaints about “Hamilton.” Not many, but a few. “I loved it, but I did think it was a little bit too long,” the actress confesses. “But you do get to drink alcohol in the theater, so that makes it much better.” She stresses again that...

Anne Hathaway's baby has made her cooler towards Internet trolls

In person, Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis are buds. They don’t get along so well in “Colossal.” In the sci-fi comedy-drama, the Oscar-winning actress plays Gloria, a 30-something hot mess who’s forced — thanks in part to a considerable drinking problem — to ditch New York and return to her middle...

Geek Girl in Hollywood: The thing about Spider-Man

The thing about Spider-Man is that he’s us. He’s any of us. I watched the new trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” this morning and it’s more obvious in this version of the Marvel superhero than it’s been in any of the versions I’ve seen out there. Peter...

'Ghost in the Shell' is another film where ScarJo kills it as a humanoid

‘Ghost in the Shell’Director: Rupert SandersStars: Scarlett Johansson, Pilou AsbaekRating: PG-133 (out of 5) GlobesThe very embodiment of the American remake of something foreign, the new “Ghost in the Shell” is like a late-comer to a party it itself started. You can blame a good deal of modern...

'Ghost in the Shell' and 10 other cases of Hollywood white-washing

Hollywood isn’t that progressive. Much as actors and filmmakers talk a big game about making the world a better place, the movies still haven’t gotten over “white-washing.” This week sees the release of “Ghost in the Shell.” It’s a huge movie — one of the year’s priciest, starring one of our...

'Prevenge''s Alice Lowe on how to make a horror film while pregnant

Alice Lowe is very nice. It’s a little surreal. If you’re an American and you’ve seen the English actress and filmmaker in a movie, you’ve probably watched her murdering someone. In 2012’s dark comedy “Sightseers,” which she also co-wrote, Lowe played a mousy woman whose boyfriend (Steve Oram)...

PHOTOS: 'Fast and the Furious' stars: Then and now

"The Fate of the Furious" speeds into theaters on April 14, promising new twists (Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto is a bad guy?) and almost certainly crazier stunts than before. That would be hard: The franchise has gotten more and more ridiculous and OTT with each installment. It's even hard to...

Woody Harrelson is a hilariously exasperating loner in 'Wilson'

‘Wilson’Director: Craig JohnsonStars: Woody Harrelson, Laura DernRating: R3 (out of 5) GlobesYou wouldn’t want to bump into Wilson (Woody Harrelson) in real life. He’s the guy who sits next to a complete stranger on an empty bus and tries to chat. He always speaks his mind, which is to say he’s...

Guess what? Dax Shepard's 'CHiPs' is better than it looks

‘CHiPs’Director: Dax ShepardStars: Dax Shepard, Michael PenaRating: R3 (out of 5) GlobesCan you recommend a movie that, more or less objectively, isn’t very good? That is spotty on laughs and sloppy when it comes to tone, story and especially when it tries to be an “action-comedy”? It would be easy...

On the set of the buddy cop com "CHiPs,"Kristen Bell and (real life) husband Dax Shepard had a minor disagreement — and it's kind of a funny story.In the film, starring and directed by Shepard, Bell has a supporting role as his vapid, estranged ex-wife.“I wanted [my character] to be very...

Jake Gyllenhaal on why 'Life' is important in the age of Trump
