Kirsten Dunst Calls Out Reuters for Spider-Man's Girlfriend Tweet
Actress Kirsten Dunst received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and unfortunately the biggest story to come out of it is Reuters' coverage of the event. Now the actress has something to say about it. The news agency posted a video from the moment with the following caption.

"Kirsten Dunst, best known for her role as Spiderman's girlfriend, receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."

In reality, Dunst has over 80 acting credits that date back 30 years, and playing Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's mixed bag Spider-Man films only accounts for three of them. When asked about Reuter's wording on the CBS show The Talk, she had this to say.

"I don't really look at Twitter and stuff, so I'm not really a social media girl. But I was looking for the show and everything. I read it too, and I was like, yeah,

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘The Red Shoes,’ Ghost Stories, Lutz Dammbeck & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm.

“Shaw Sisters” ends with Ann Hui’s Love in a Fallen City.

House and Fantastic Planet play late-night, while City Lights and Spirited Away screen early.

Kirsten Dunst Feels Underestimated by Hollywood: "Maybe I Don't Play the Game Enough"

  • Popsugar
Kirsten Dunst has been working in the film industry for about three decades. Her roles have ranged from the intoxicating Lux Lisbon in The Virgin Suicides to a depressed bride in Melancholia, and even Marie Antoinette. And yet, she sometimes feels like she's only regarded as "the girl from Bring It On." The actress opened up about feeling underestimated by Hollywood in a recent interview with Larry Flick on Sirius Xm.

"Maybe I don't play the game enough."

Though she has received a few Golden Globe and Emmy nominations - and is even receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Aug. 29 - Kirsten said those accolades are rare for her. "I've never been recognized in my industry," she said. "I just feel like, what did I do? I'm so chill. Maybe I don't play the game enough." Kirsten added, "I know that all you have is your

Kirsten Dunst Laments Lack of Awards Recognition: ‘Maybe I Don’t Play the Game Enough’

Kirsten Dunst Laments Lack of Awards Recognition: ‘Maybe I Don’t Play the Game Enough’
Kirsten Dunst’s impressive career has spanned beloved independent films and comic book blockbusters (Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy), but the actress tells Sirius Xm host Larry Flick (via The Independent) that she’s never been able to feel the power of her storytelling. Looking back at her career, Dunst said she has felt a lot of disappointment about how some of her movies have been panned upon release and the lack of awards recognition she’s garnered.

“The things that people [enjoy] are like, ‘Remember when ‘Marie Antoinette’ [came out] – y’all panned it? And now you all love it. Remember ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’? Panned. Now you all love it,'” Dunst said. “It’s interesting to me. I feel like a lot of things I do people like later. I’ve never been recognized in my own industry. I’ve never been nominated for anything.

After 3 Decades in Hollywood, Kirsten Dunst Still Knows How to Bring It
Kirsten Dunst is being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week, and we're marking the occasion with a look back at her stunning Hollywood evolution. Kirsten got her start at just 12 years old when she starred as Claudia in Interview With the Vampire - the role nabbed her a Golden Globe nomination as well as her first kiss, which she shared with (the much older) Brad Pitt and later recounted as "disgusting." From there, she gave us memorable performances in The Virgin Suicides, Bring It On, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and the Spider-Man trilogy, and off screen, Kirsten has remained vocal about her struggles with depression, proving herself as an inspiring example to former child stars and fans alike. In honor of Kirsten's big day, we've rounded up photos documenting her three (!) decades in Hollywood. Keep reading to see them all now.

Center Stage: Close-Up on Katharina Wyss’s “Sarah Plays A Werewolf”

Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Katharina Wyss's Sarah Plays a Werewolf, which is receiving an exclusive global online premiere on Mubi, is showing from July 2 – July 31, 2019 in Mubi's Debuts series.Accompanied by the booming of an orchestra, a child comes of age and falls apart. Katharina Wyss's cogent chamber drama, Sarah Plays a Werewolf, takes place within a space lined with such clashing processes of knowing and unknowing, entangled in disorientations regarding who is who—or more importantly, who appears as who. Immediately within the title itself, Wyss obfuscates the boundaries between the individual and their assumed part(s). Who is Sarah, and who is the werewolf? How would one tell the difference between a teenage girl and the monster she plays—or is she, rather, a monster playing a teenage girl, the latter acting as a disguise? We may divide Sarah Plays a Werewolf into three acts.

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: The Best Movie Year Ever, Orson Welles, Sam Peckinpah & More

Winter and spring 2019 have seen a number of gorgeous art and making of books, along with some indispensable looks at Hollywood icons. Plus, we finally have the definitive look at the films of 1999, and what made that year so stellar–and so influential.

Best. Movie. Year. Ever. How 1999 Blew Up the Big Screen by Brian Raftery (Simon & Schuster)

Revisiting the Cinematic Landscape of 1999

Tom Jolliffe travels back in time 20 years to 1999 to look over the cinematic landscape…

The millennium suddenly draws in. The century is in its final year. Cinema has a pre-occupation with apocalypse and disorder, chaos, among other things. It’s 1999. 20 years ago now. That’s pretty frightening, but regardless, hold my hand, lets go have a look back over the years cinematic output.

Ending a century should be done in style. There are two films in particular that had a long standing impact on pop-culture and cult fandom from the year, which still maintain a strong following. First, 1999 is the year of The Matrix. It kind of grew slowly, really capturing the sub-cultures of society, and garnering a legion of geeky fans who fell in love with anything from the sci-fi references, the clothing, the Hong Kong inspired martial arts action, the ground-breaking effects and the philosophical and literary references within the film.

‘Lost In Translation,’ 15 Years Later: Sofia Coppola on Ending the Film on Her Terms and the Year It Took to Cast Bill Murray

‘Lost In Translation,’ 15 Years Later: Sofia Coppola on Ending the Film on Her Terms and the Year It Took to Cast Bill Murray
Sofia Coppola already had “The Virgin Suicides” under her belt when Focus Features opened “Lost In Translation” in limited release on September 12, 2003, but her career forever changed with her second directorial effort. “Translation” broke through on a mainstream level, grossing $119 million at the worldwide box office and winning Coppola the Oscar for best original screenplay. If “Suicides” made Coppola a breakout director to watch, then “Translation” cemented her status as one of the best directors in the business.

Lost In Translation” turns 15 years old this September, and Little White Lies celebrated the milestone anniversary by reliving the film’s making with Coppola herself. The writer-director remembered the idea for the movie percolating not long after she got married to Spike Jonze and started to feel isolated.
