Cameron Crowe keeps remaking Jerry Maguire. Elizabethtown. We Bought a Zoo. And now his newest movie, Aloha. Three times in a row now, Crowe has returned to the formula that yielded his biggest financial hit: A good-hearted screwup hits rock bottom and then redeems his disastrous professional mistakes by winning the heart of a great woman.
Unlike James Franco’s Saturday Night, which took viewers behind the scenes of the making of just one episode of SNL, Live From New York! presents an audio-visual history of the whole series. With the help of lots of familiar faces, including those who have hosted the show throughout its run, the new documentary traces the existence of SNL from its early days to now. The first trailer for Live From New York! is here, giving you a little taste of what the doc has in store.
Former 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin has always proven a fickle fish to fry, at least when it comes to predicting his next move. There won’t be a run for office, or half-hearted retirement public life this time, however, as Baldwin will combine his aspirations for a new HBO House of Cards-style HBO drama as the Mayor of New York City.
We knew going in that the SNL 40th anniversary special would be chock-full of just about every famous person who has ever walked within spitting distance of 30 Rockefeller Plaza and the opening monologue was quick to make use of this genuinely insane temporary cast of stars. Things got started on the right foot when the always-welcome Steve Martin took the stage ... but then he was joined by Tom Hanks. And then things got really crazy.
When we compiled our most anticipated movies of 2015 here at ScreenCrush, I fought hard to include Cameron Crowe’s new movie ‘Aloha.’ True, ‘Elizabethtown’ was sort of a disaster (about a disaster, so it was thematically appropriate, if hugely disappointing), and ‘We Bought a Zoo’ wasn’t a whole lot better, but after ‘Jerry Maguire’ and ‘Almost Famous,’ I just refuse to give up hope that this guy will find his way back to that genius he’s shown repeatedly throughout his career.
Amid all the major blockbusters and new superhero movies we’re excited about this year, there’s one film we’re looking forward to that’s a little different: Cameron Crowe’s latest film which stars Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, and was previously operating under “Untitled Hawaiian Project” during production. Crowe’s latest effort, which hits theaters in late spring, has now been given the appropriate title of ‘Aloha.’
Merciful Zeus, if you thought Eddie Murphy returning to ‘SNL’ after 31 years for the 40th anniversary special on February 15 was big enough, wait until you get a load of the full roster. Rivaling turnout for the Emmys and Oscars combined, the upcoming ‘SNL’ reunion will feature everyone from legendary alumni like Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Chevy Chase, to favorite hosts like Alec Baldwin, and even Taylor Swift, why not!
Alec Baldwin may be done with the paparazzi and media as we know it, but he won't let any of that drama get in the way of his career. As 'Mission: Impossible 5' solidifies its cast and returns Tom Cruise to the fold, the film is looking to enlist the former '30 Rock' star to supervise Cruise's secret agent theatrics.
Last week we caught our first glimpse of the new 'South Park' season previewing the newsworthy topics likely for target by the Emmy-winning series, but at long last season 17 premiere "Let Go, Let Gov" is nearly upon us. The first new 'South Park' footage of the season has emerged, but who becomes the first target of Cartman's wrath when the acclaimed satire finally returns?
Late last night we heard rumors that former '30 Rock' star Alec Baldwin had entered negotiations with NBC for a late-night talk show of his own, potentially filling the slot currently occupied by 'The Voice' host Carson Daly's own series 'Last Call.' Now, NBC has reportedly renewed 'Last Call' with Carson Daly for a 13th season, but does it put to bed any future with Alec Baldwin?
