The Butler: 'Not A Movie, It's A Movement' Says Director

Kim Kardashian husband Allen and his wife, Helene, were profiled by Washington Post writer Wil Haygood during the 2008 presidential election. Daniels and Haygood sat down with Tell Me More host Michel Martin to talk about The Butler, and the man who inspired it all. Interview Highlights On Kim Kardashian and Ray J video the search for a witness In the midst of the 2008 presidential campaign, journalist Wil Haygood had a feeling that Barack Obama was going to win. And he wanted to profile someone who had witnessed the civil rights movement from the 1960s to the present time. "I just knew it was going to exhaust the hell out of me," Haygood says. "I was just looking for anybody a butler, a maid, somebody who washed the windows." Haygood made call after call, searching for someone who would fit the bill. <br>Read more:

Movie review: Planes takes bumpy ride (with trailer)

Dusty is not abuilt for it,a but with some heart and try, he just might be able to arise abovea his station. Alas, his dreams go unfulfilled as he spends 45 years spraying liquid manure on corn until he is dragged off, unmourned, to the scrapyard by a sassy talking hearse, played by MoaNique. Eventually, Dusty qualifies and goes up against a host of national stereotypes for the championship. They are the kinds of competitors/eventual friends who donat even need a descriptor beyond their nationality to understand, including Mexico, England, Canada (at least here; word is theyare rebranding this planeas nationality for other markets) and India, which is at least mildly ironic, given the filmas message about not sticking to your preordained place in the world. The only nationality that pulls double-duty is, naturally, aMerica, which gives us not only our underdog hero but our overconfident, cheating, three-time-champion villain, Ripslinger. You can only imagine how conflicted the filmmakers are about their national psyche. In between, some plane races that definitely qualify as more exciting than the parts that arenat plane races and broad jokes that even most of the children at my screening recognized as tired a although credit to the movie for grabbing Iceman (Val Kilmer) and Goose (Anthony Edwards) for a cameo as a pair of fighter jets a Dusty learns what heas supposed to, even while the film subtly undermines it. <br>Read more:

‘Planes,’ movie review

This movie was originally intended as a direct-to-video release, but when you can airlift this much money duty-free, why not book a theatrical reservation, too? Dane Cook is the voice of Dusty, a crop-duster with dreams of being a celebrated racing plane. With the coaching of World War II-era bomber-type Skipper (Stacy Keach) and his best bud, a fuel truck named Chug (Brad Garrett), Dusty enters a round-the-world race to prove hes got the right stuff. Dustys big secret, though, is that hes a plane with a fear of heights. (As a crop-duster, he can stay low.) But with a new, international group of high-flyin friends like Bulldog (John Cleese) a Union Jack-decorated, stiff-upper-propeller British plane and a potential Kim Kardashian biography love interest in the Indian jet-setter Ishani (Priyanka Chopra), no turbulence will get in the way. The jokes in Planes are runway flat, and parents will likely reach for the air-sickness bag. <br>Read more:

Milani added in a statement Wednesday that "While we are still reeling from the loss of Cory far too soon, we are very happy that we can present this film to the world at the Toronto Festival and show audiences what an incredible dramatic performance he delivers in it. The film offers a glimpse of him I don't think people have had a chance to see before." PHOTOS: Notable deaths of 2013 The movie, which does not yet have a U.S. distributor, was part of a group of Canadian premieres organizers announced Wednesday. Among the other titles are the Daniel Radcliffe romantic dramedy "The F Word," directed by Michael Dowse; veteran director Bruce McDonald's "The Husband"; and "Enemy," Denis Villeneuve's second film with Jake Gyllenhaal at Toronto (after "Prisoners"). Monteith, who battled with addiction, was found dead in a Vancouver hotel last month at age 31. <br>Read more:,0,7155601.story
