'Frozen' star Idina Menzel to perform 'Let It Go' at Oscars

Singer/actress Idina Menzel will perform “Let it Go” from the Disney smash hit Frozen during the Oscars, ABC announced Tuesday, leaving no doubt that the film’s best-selling soundtrack has earned its place in pop culture history.

The animated fairy tale Frozen is up for two Oscar nominations. “Let it Go,” the flick’s theme song,  is a nominee in the Best Original Song Category alongside “Happy” (from Despicable Me 2), “Ordinary Love” (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) and “The Moon Song” (Her). READ FULL STORY

'The Room' star Greg Sestero says James Franco 'ideal guy' to adapt memoir

Can the making of a bad film make for a good one? That is the question raised by the news — reported by Deadline — that James Franco is to direct an adaptation of The Disaster Artist, actor Greg Sestero’s memoir about his time spent starring in the so-bad-it’s-awesome cult movie The Room.

Who wants to see the trailer for a killer mermaid movie? -- VIDEO

Nymph-poster.jpg

The killer mermaid genre is not quite as slender as you might imagine (and we’re not even counting the controversial alternative ending to Splash in which a bloodlust-crazed Daryl Hannah beheads Tom Hanks with her tail). But it certainly isn’t large enough for us to ignore the appearance of a clip for Epic Pictures’ new horror film Nymph, about two young women who go on a Mediterranean vacation and uncover the watery lair of a killer mermaid beneath an abandoned military fortress.

A killer mermaid? A watery lair? Other things? What’s not to love!

Scream Factory to release acclaimed zombie film 'The Battery' on Blu-ray and DVD

The-Battery.jpg

My favorite horror film of 2013 which almost no one saw? That would have to be The Battery, a micro-budgeted tale of two bickering ex-baseball players trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. Written and directed by the magnificently bearded Jeremy Gardner – who also stars alongside Adam Cronheim — the result is a reminder that you don’t need a whole lot of money to make an atmospheric and character-rich undead flick. In fact, all you really you need is $6,000 and a baseball bat (okay, and a ball and a glove).

When British director Ben Wheatley‘s new film A Field in England was released in the U.K. last year one newspaper hailed the 17th century drama as  Apocalypse Now among the hedgerows.” Certainly this latest movie from the director of Sightseers, Kill List, and the forthcoming, Tom Hiddleston-starring High-Rise makes for an unforgettable experience as audiences here will discover when the film arrives in select cinemas and on VOD tomorrow.

'Leprechaun' director Mark Jones talks about his new thriller 'Scorned'

Scorned.jpg

Hell hath no fury like a you-know-who who has been you-know-what-ed in the new thriller Scorned, which is released on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday. The film stars AnnaLynne McCord (90210) as a woman who discovers her boyfriend (Billy Zane) has been cheating on her with dramatic and — judging by the movie’s trailer – dog-in-microwave-featuring consequences.

Below, Scorned director Mark Jones (Leprechaun, Rumpelstiltskin) talks about the film — and the time he got punk’d by George Peppard.

'A Most Wanted Man' director mourns loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman

The maker of one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last films, the espionage drama A Most Wanted Man, mourned the loss of his friend and leading man — just weeks after having spent time together at Sundance premiering the film.

Above is Willem Dafoe, director Anton Corbijn, Hoffman, and Rachel McAdams at the festival, in much happier times.

“Hearing that Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away came as much as a shock to me as to anyone else I’d imagine,” said Corbijn, who referred obliquely to the personal troubles Hoffman was now clearly facing: “We spent some time together only two weeks ago and he seemed in a good place despite some issues he had to deal with.”

'Her' and 'Captain Phillips' win Writers Guild Awards

HER-TRAILER.jpg

Spike Jonze’s philosophical sci-fi love story Her, and Billy Ray’s harrowing true-life hostage saga Captain Phillips earned best original and adapted screenplays, respectively, from the Writers Guild Awards on Saturday.

In the original category, Her was facing its four rivals for the Oscar: American Hustle, Blue Jasmine, Dallas Buyers Club, and Nebraska, so its victory can be seen as a strong harbinger of where the Academy Award could go on March 2. In anecdotal sampling of Academy members, EW’s Prize Fighter has also determined that Her is far and away the front-runner for this category.

The WGA’s predictive powers are less assured in the adapted category, since guild rules excluded some top Oscar contenders this year.

'Alone Yet Not Alone': Academy says revoked Original Song composer contacted a third of voters

ALONE-YET-NOT-ALONE.jpg

Three days after yanking the Original Song nomination from the religious period-drama Alone Yet Not Alone, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has issue a more detailed explanation about why the theme song was disqualified.

At issue was composer Bruce Broughton, a former governor of the group’s music branch, who acknowledged that he privately emailed members of that voting division and asked them to consider his song from the relatively obscure movie.

Meanwhile, Broughton is questioning whether what he did was any different than the past award-season consulting done by the current Academy president, who comes from a background in marketing and public relations.

Since every film is hyped and promoted in some way, the Academy is now explaining why his actions were deemed improper — saying he directly reached out to nearly one-third of the voters in his field, and used his position as a leader to gain an advantage that other contenders didn’t have.

“The Academy takes very seriously anything that undermines the integrity of the Oscars voting process,” Saturday’s statement read. “The Board regretfully concluded that Mr. Broughton’s actions did precisely that.”
