“For me it was just a privilege,” Kidman told the crowd at Sundance. “I sat down with director Park [Chan-wook] and obviously I knew Oldboy and I knew Thirst. I was just very honored that he wanted me to do the film with him because it’s wonderful when you come in and the director has such a strong vision. You go, ‘I can relax’ because I’m goi...

The Television Critics Association waited all week for the Arrested Development panel held by Netflix. In fact, they’ve been waiting six years since the Fox series was cancelled. The major rumor was the cast would reunite for a movie, but Netflix is putting on a 14 episode season of episodes. The difference is each episode will focus on one member of the Bluth family. That was the only way they could get the entire cast back.
“They have other commitments, they’re on other shows, they have other contractual obligations,” series creator Mitch Hurwitz explained. “Their lives have gone on so i...

The new judges for American Idol met the Television Critics Association today. Nicki Minaj is one of three new judges replacing Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, and though the show is only in audition stages, Minaj described one of her favorite acts.
“Nobody else thought she could sing,” Minaj said. “Big Crazy Baby, Obama girl. No one else thought she could sing and I kept on hearing she had potential. Everyone saw her as a crazy character and I can relate to that because when you have a crazy outgoing character, people don’t see your talent. By the time we were in Hollywood, they said, ‘Y...

When Fox presented a panel on American Idol to the Television Critics Association, many reporters wanted some dirt about the reported feud between new judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. The singers assured reporters they had mended fences, and didn’t want to go into detail. Carey herself preferred to focus on the Idol contestants.
“The whole thing is convoluted,” Carey said. “It’s a distraction from the show and from the contestants and I think it’s unfair to them. It shouldn’t be about any of us sitting up here.”
Carey has collaborated with Minaj in the music world as well. “Nicki and ...

Kristen Stewart’s new movie is also based on a book that was highly influential on a generation. This is not Twilight though. On the Road is based on the Jack Kerouac book from 1957. The film version is rated R, for scenes of sex and drug use, in both of which Stewart’s character partakes. It’s all in the book though, which Stewart read in her early teens.
“I think the actual law is if you are with a parent you can go and see an R-rated movie, if you're over the age of 13,” Stewart said. “I guess it depends on who your parents are, who you are. I read On the Road when I was 14, so I don't...

Barbra Streisand is back on the big screen this week in the comedy The Guilt Trip. We don’t get to sing because she’s playing a regular mom who’s not the world’s greatest multi-talent superstar. However, while discussing her film at a press conference in Los Angeles, Streisand complimented the upcoming musical film Les Miserables for letting its actors sing live. She said that’s how she did it in her classic movie musicals.
"By the way, A Star is Born was done live,” Streisand said. “Sometimes with an audience. I sang live. I sang live in Funny Girl,” at the end of Funny Girl, because th...
