French Children Don't Throw Food

Hey, did you hear? French children don’t throw food! But you know who does? Anne Hathaway. Okay, I made that up – Ms. Hathaway may or may not throw food. But she is set to star French Children Don’t Throw Food, adapted from the book of the same name. The story follows a journalist who moves to Paris for her husband’s job, and then has to try to balance her family and career. And at some point, the journalist will probably ask, “Hey, do French children throw food?” And then someone will say “Non!” in a thick French accent. At least, that’s what would happen if I were making this movie.

The Last Thing He Wanted Trailer - Anne Hathaway

The 2020 Sundance Film Festival kicks off today, and one of our most anticipated movies playing up in the mountains of Park City, Utah is the latest directorial effort from Mudbound and Pariah director Dee Rees.

The Last Thing He Wanted, based on Joan Dideon’s novel of the same name, finds Anne Hathaway as journalist Elena McMahon, who ends up caught in the middle of the Iran-Contra scandal.

Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway has been confirmed to star and production was originally supposed to get underway next month, but a new report says shooting has been delayed for nine months, which means it’s unlikely the movie will be able to hit its original release date.

Bo Burnham Writing Sesame Street Songs

Before he wrote and directed the indie darling Eighth Grade last year, Bo Burnham was known for his stand-up comedy.

Pictures and MGM are bringing him in to write some original songs for the Sesame Street movie coming in 2021. Read More »

Riding in on the wave of gender-swapped remakes, The Hustle is a comedy whose timing is late in every sense of the word.

Fat jokes and gay digs run amok in a film that is barely saved by the sparkling chemistry of its duo, Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, who do their best with a film that scams you out of your time.
