  • The Sneaky Power of Amy Schumer, in ‘Trainwreck’ and Elsewhere

    Published: Wed, Jul 8, 2015

    Sitting recently in the cafe atop the Comedy Cellar, the West Village clubhouse for comedians, in between therapy and hair appointments, Amy Schumer reflected on her mouthy confidence to the New York Times. “My whole life, I felt like people wanted the girls to be a little quieter,” she said, an attitude she rejected early. (“We were always raised to believe that we have worth and should express ourselves,” her sister added later. They also have an older brother, Jason Stein, a jazz musician.) As her family went through a turbulent period — a divorce, a bankruptcy, a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis for her father — Ms. Schumer turned to comedy as an escape. She earned a theater degree at Towson University in Maryland, where her feminism deepened. “I’ve always been hos before bros,” she said. “Madame Bovary, I felt for her, the injustice. After I read ‘A Doll’s House,’ I was like, well, all is lost.”

  • Ben Affleck DENIES Rumours That Jennifer Garner Split Was Because Of Margot Robbie

    Published: Mon, Jul 6, 2015

    Ben Affleck has worked with many absolutely gorgeous women throughout his career, says Yahoo, but of course the fact that he just so happened to be starring in a film alongside the stunning Margot Robbie at around the same time as he and Jennifer Garner announced their split lead to some speculation that Margot was the reason. Anyway, unsurprisingly, Ben’s camp has wasted no time in denying the vicious rumour, clearing Margot’s name of any wrongdoing as she is still very happy with her own long term boyfriend, Tom Ackerley.

  • 'Mega Man' creator wants your help making a game-and-movie combo

    Published: Sun, Jul 5, 2015

    Mighty No. 9 might not even be out the door, but Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune is already looking for your help with a new project -- and this one is considerably more ambitious. His studio has launched crowdfunding for Red Ash, a project that combines both an open world action game (The Indelible Legend) and an anime movie from Studio4ºC (Magicicada). While both will share familiar characters and the theme of treasure hunting in a robot apocalypse, they'll otherwise be set in "parallel worlds" where the producers are free to tell whatever stories they want. As with Mighty, there are a lot of pledge options that sometimes let you directly shape either project. It'll take a minimum $25 pledge to get the game, or $24 for the movie; plunk down at least $499 and you can start creating achievements, naming items and more. Studio4ºC is even willing to accept fresh ideas for free, and it'll give you a small reward if your vision makes it into the anime.
