Rizzo From ‘Grease’ Looks Unrecognizable As She Makes TV Appearance To Mark Movie’s 40th Anniversary

The 1978 musical’s enduring popularity is the result of a brilliant storyline, extremely catchy songs, and, of course, the actors and actresses it thrust into the limelight. Unlike many other movies from the seventies, Grease transcends generations. I watched it for the first time with my mom when I was a kid, and I’ve seen it countless times since then with my friends. There’s no doubt I’ll show

Director Says He Was Kicked Off Movie After Harvey Weinstein Didn’t Find His Lead Actress ‘Fuckable’
"I don't cast films according to Harvey Weinstein's erection." — A quote from director Michael Caton-Jones that should have been published twenty years ago, but wasn't. According to a new interview with Buzzfeed, the Scottish filmmaker was kicked off production of B. Monkey because his pick for lead actress wasn't "fuckable," to use Weinstein's term. The role went to Asia Argento instead of British starlet Sophie Okonedo. As we know now, Argento has accused the Hollywood honcho of raping

‘Good Manners’ is the most interesting werewolf movie you’ll see this year

‘Good Manners’ is the most interesting werewolf movie you’ll see this year
The London Film Festival took pains to disguise the premise of Good Manners, describing it as “unclassifiable” and advising viewers not to read the plot summary. You probably should avoid plot spoilers, but I think it’s safe to reveal one key detail: Good Manners is a werewolf movie. Written and directed by Brazilian filmmakers Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra, Good Manners is refreshingly unusual. Almost all of the main characters are women living in Sao Paolo, in a genre-defying story that incorporates romance,

Watch how these film students react when they discover Jordan Peele was in their class
It never dawned on UCLA professor Tananarive Due that she could teach a black horror course before the horror movie Get Out was released this year.

Why don’t women come forward after sexual assault? This comment nailed it.
"Why didn't she say anything sooner?" It's the question that frustrates sexual assault prevention advocates and discredits the victims who bravely come forward after they've been targeted. Stars Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow — who both disclosed to The New York Times they'd been sexually harassed by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein years ago — are among the latest women now having to trudge through a predictable wave of victim-blaming following their disclosures.
