There Is No Better "A-Team" Than Ed Sheeran and His Celebrity Pals

  • Popsugar
There Is No Better
Ed Sheeran may be BFFs with Taylor Swift, but it seems like he's also friends with everyone else. From his early friendships with Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston to his more recent relationship with The Weeknd, the "Shape of You" singer has no shortage of celebrity pals. Sadly, he's also lost a few friends on his road to stardom. In the March issue of Rolling Stone magazine, the British crooner blamed the Forbes list for "f*cking it up." "I was getting texts from people with pictures of cars going, 'I'd like this for my birthday, please. This one's only .06 percent of your annual income,'" he said, referring to when they reported that he made $57 million in 2015. Still, something tells us Ed is doing just fine.

Sundance ’17 and on to Rotterdam ‘17: Interview with Kirsten Tan, Writer and Director of ‘Pop Aye’

Sundance ’17 and on to Rotterdam ‘17: Interview with Kirsten Tan, Writer and Director of ‘Pop Aye’
This first feature of Kirsten Tan premiered in Sundance ‘17 World Cinema Dramatic Competition. Its provenance is Singapore but it takes place in Thailand. It continued onward to the Hivos Tiger Competition at Iffr (R’dam).

The thrill of interviewing here in Sundance is that you see a film; you have an impression and while it is still fresh you meet the filmmakers without having much time for any research or reflection. And then you get to see them again as “old friends” when you meet again in Rotterdam.

As Kirsten, her producer Weijie Lai and I sat down at the Sundance Co-op on Main Street here in Park City, I really had little idea of where the interview would take us, somewhat analogously to her film in which an architect, disenchanted with life in general, being put aside as “old” in his own highly successful architectural firm and in a stale relationship with his wife,

Slamdance 2017: 13 Must-See Films At This Year’s Festival
Now well into its second decade, the Slamdance Film Festival is gearing up for its 2017 edition. Mostly taking place at the Treasure Mountain Inn at top of Park City, Utah’s busting Main Street, Slamdance is dedicated to presenting a festival and a community designed “for filmmakers by filmmakers.”

In previous years, projects from directors like Christopher Nolan, Marc Forster, Jared Hess, Oren Peli, Benh Zeitlin, Seth Gordon, Lynn Shelton and Lena Dunham have bowed at the festival, and it’s become a fertile — if offbeat — proving ground for fresh talents. This year looks to be yet another banner one for the fest, and as such, we’ve gone on a little trip through the Slamdance slate to dig up some prime possibilities for must-see films (shorts and features!).

Filmmaker Stephen Elliott Investigates a “Rigged” Film Festival Submission Process and Launches the Lo-Fi Los Angeles Fest

Stephen Elliott is an author, filmmaker, and founding editor of the respected literary web site, The Rumpus. He co-wrote and directed the James Franco-starring About Cherry, which premiered at The Berlin International Film Festival in 2012 before screening at other festivals. And the film The Adderall Diaries, based on his memoir of the same name, premiered at Tribeca in 2015. With these credentials, he (rightly?) assumed that his own second feature, Happy Baby, based on his novel of the same name, had a reasonable chance of getting accepted into one of the more than 15 film festivals he submitted to. But, it […]

Two intriguing casting announcements for the second season of HBO’s hit anthology series True Detective are making the rounds online today, with word that About Cherry breakout Ashley Hinshaw and “Jessie’s Girl” singer Rick Springfield have both landed roles.

Meanwhile, Springfield himself revealed his involvement in the second season of True Detective, tweeting out the following on late Wednesday:

Just finished my 1st day of shooting for season 2 of HBO’s True Detective. What a great script. Working w/ Colin Farrell & Rachel McAdams!

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool

by Heather Wixson

Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and

Plus One Comes Home in January

The next film from Last House on the Left remake director Dennis Iliadis, Plus One, will be making its DVD debut on January 14th; and we have your details and artwork right here. Check it out.

Synopsis:

Director Dennis Iliadis (The Last House on the Left) delivers thought-provoking suspense with Plus One, a supernatural thriller that tests the limits of survival and the loyalties of friendship.

Three college friends head out for the biggest party of the year, each looking for something different: sex, love, a simple human connection. The possibilities are endless at the mansion where the music throbs, liquor flows, and hired strippers dance on an outdoor stage. But an unexplained paranormal phenomenon disrupts the proceedings. Perfect replicas of all the partying kids suddenly appear, and what's even weirder, they are doing everything their originals did 15 minutes earlier.

As the party descends into bloody chaos, the three friends

'The Blacklist's' Megan Boone: 'James Spader believes in me more than I believe in myself'

Life on "The Blacklist" is good, if you ask Megan Boone.

And how could it not be? NBC's Monday crime drama is one of the season's new hits, with strong ratings (including those from post-broadcast DVR viewings, where the show has set a couple of records) and positive reviews ... and a breakout star in Boone as novice FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen, who's drawing interest and information from enigmatic ex-fugitive Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader).

"I was so elated," Boone tells Zap2it of learning she'd be teamed with Spader, since she was cast for "The Blacklist" first. "He often believes in me more than I believe in myself. I'm expected to carry the show with him, and at first, that was really a daunting task.

"James helped me to know that I could put that energy into the work that we do together. And in doing so, he established a

Pierogis and paczkis aside, another thing we like about the Polish is the Wroclaw’s Us in Progress initiative, which is already at year three (fifth edition if you include the Paris) and reported by Screen Daily, have selected the lucky six projects (October 23rd-25th) where filmmaker/producing teams will take part in what is essentially: first looks of U.S. indie films for European buyers with a cash prize (post production coin) decided by a jury. Among the noteworthy names we have the likes of Littlerock‘s Mike Ott, Gabi on the Roof in July‘s Lawrence Levine and Onur Tukel (writer on Michael Tully’s Septien, director behind 2012′s Richard’s Wedding).

Dev Patel Rumored For Neill Blomkamp’s “Chappie”

Back when Slumdog Millionaire came out and charmed audiences and critics alike, I thought Dev Patel’s career looked promising. Even though he hasn’t quite prospered in the industry as I hoped he would (presumably thanks to his subpar performances in M. Night Shyamalan’s potentially career-ending film The Last Airbender and the critically panned About Cherry), the British actor managed to score a role in HBO’s popular show The Newsroom, where he plays Neal Sampat. But now it seems he has caught the eye of renowned directors once again, as he’s reportedly in talks to star in Elysium director Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi comedy Chappie.

The movie’s based on the South African director’s short film Terta Vaal, which (sort of) advertises a team of robots that helps police deal with slums around the globe. Sharlto Copley (naturally) has already been announced to star as

Nsfw: Of Course James Franco Celebrated His Birthday With A Dildo Cake

Nsfw: Of Course James Franco Celebrated His Birthday With A Dildo Cake
James Franco turned 35 on April 19 -- he even blogged about it for HuffPost Entertainment-- but he waited until he was in Miami this past weekend to celebrate with a cake that mirrors several of his latest films.

On Monday, Franco posted a photo of an S&M-themed birthday cake -- complete with a dildo, ball gag, whip and anal beads, and his name, all made out of icing -- to his WhoSay account.

Of course, we say the cake is fitting since it's reflective of Franco's recent projects. In the past year, the actor appeared in "About Cherry," a film about a girl entering the world of Bdsm porn; he produced a documentary called "Kink," which looks at the world's largest fetish website; and he directed/starred in "Interior Leather Bar," which re-imagines the lost 40 minutes from the 1980s film "Cruising," about a serial killer targeting gay men on the S&M scene.

Heather Graham writes sex script

Heather Graham has written a play about sex. The 43-year-old actress has approached publishers about her raunchy script, which addresses women's attitudes towards sex. Heather told the New York Post newspaper: ''I've done a script about women and their healthy attitudes toward sex. I'm talking to people about publishing it.'' The blonde beauty is no stranger to explicit role as she played porn director Margaret in the 2012 drama film 'About Cherry' but she admits she'd like to explore more in depth roles. Speaking previously, she said: ''The subject of sexuality is definitely fascinating to me. I think also men like to write
