New resource aims to support and guide young actors through the industry

When Rowan Chapman first set out to create a ‘career longevity’ guide for aspiring and young actors, full of survival tactics to help them cope with the pressures of the industry, it wasn’t initially clear that what he was crafting would end up in large part as a mental health and wellbeing resource.

Launched this week, The Long Haul is a free website with advice that spans graduation from drama school, finding an agent, working with casting directors and maintaining professional relationships. But further, it also offers advice on cultivating a healthy attitude to creativity, dealing with rejection, nutrition, fitness, sleep, body image issues, finances, self doubt and career obsession, and knowing when you aren’t okay and need to reach out for help.

Its content and research was generated and vetted over four years by 150 industry professionals, including actors, casting directors, producers, directors and distributors, as well as

Bww Album Review: Norbert Leo Butz Is In It For The Long Haul

The Long Haul is Tony nominee Norbert Leo Butz's first original album. Butz has always been one of the more unconventional, versatile voices in contemporary musical theatre, and this album gives him a new chance to shine as both a singer and as a songwriter. It's a pleasant, bluegrass and country-tinged set of songs that doesn't break new ground but is a perfectly enjoyable album overall.

Wonder Woman Dominates The Weekend, Captain Underpants Comes In Distant Second

comScore today announced the official worldwide weekend box office estimates for the weekend of June 04, 2017, as compiled by the company’s theatrical measurement services.

By this time, you’re probably more than aware that Wonder Woman exceeded all sorts of expectations this past weekend when it, not only surprised critics and fans with its amazing quality, but with its ridiculous box office performance. Weeks ago, it was speculated that the film would only take in around $65 million domestically, but it went above and beyond, taking in $100.5 million, securing its place as the highest grossing opener for a film directed by a woman. Wonder Woman also received an A CinemaScore, meaning audiences that went to see it pretty much got exactly what they wanted out of the flick. This is usually a sign that a movie will have a long life in theaters, but we’ll have to see is that comes to fruition,

Pirates Takes In $62.2 Million, Baywatch Sinks With $18 Million

comScore today announced the official worldwide weekend box office estimates for the weekend of May 28, 2017, as compiled by the company’s theatrical measurement services.

This weekend was an interesting one. Here we have Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the latest entry in a franchise whose previous films have either cracked $1 billion, or gotten ridiculously close. There hasn’t been a film in the series for a solid six years, and yet we weren’t quite sure if there was still an audience for it, especially in today’s blockbuster-laden world. Well, it doesn’t sound like this film will be breaking any records, as it’s only taken in $62.2 million in its first weekend, the second lowest next the original back in 2003. What’s worse is that this is a film that likely will not have much of a tail. Sure, with its A- CinemaScore, most

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul review

The fourth Diary Of A Wimpy Kid movie arrives in the UK this weekend. Well, we liked it...

Where possible, I try and write a review of a film without having seen anyone else’s opinions of it first. I’ve got plenty of time afterwards to assess just how wrong I am in the eyes of the world.

Last weekend, then, rather than attend a press show, I took my children of varying ages (which tends to be how children work) to the new Wimpy Kid film, The Long Haul. I’ve enjoyed the first three, and particular applaud the quite brilliantly cast company of young performers. But young performers grow old and so, five years after Diary Of A Wimpy Kid 3, The Long Haul arrives with the same director (David Bowery), author Jeff Kinney still heavily involved, but a totally new cast.

I was expecting something akin to a reboot,

David Bowers interview: Wimpy Kid, James Bond, family movies

Simon Brew May 25, 2017

The director of the new Wimpy Kid - and the last three - on the movie, and why he doesn't like deleted scenes...

Returning for the fourth Diary Of A Wimpy Kid film – and his third as director – is British-born director David Bowers. Having started with animation – directing Flushed Away and Astro Boy, amongst his extensive credits – Bowers has since been primarily working on bringing Jeff Kinney’s characters to the screen.

Ahead of the release in UK cinemas this Friday of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, he spared us some time for a chat about the movie.

We started by my asking if he’d been to see the film himself since it was finished…

I went on Saturday to watch it. My mother in law wanted to see it. The guy in front of us, who’d grudgingly taken his seven-year old daughter,

Alien: Covenant Disappoints, But Still Edges Out Guardians Of The Galaxy 2

comScore today announced the official worldwide weekend box office estimates for the weekend of May 21, 2017, as compiled by the company’s theatrical measurement services.

Coming into this weekend, we here at Lrm asked ourselves whether or not Alien: Covenant would help propel the franchise forward, or if it would prove that the momentum had officially drained. While We can’t say that this weekend is a complete bust, It’s fair to call it a bit of a disappointment. Our own Weekend Warrior thought the film would come in at around $55 million, and early Thursday numbers showed the film tracking at $40-$45 million. But when all said and done, it only came out with $36 million — a much lower figure than even conservative estimates. As of right now, there’s no real solid reason as to why this was. Perhaps it was the fact that audiences are facing blockbuster overkill, and

'Alien: Covenant' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Duke it Out for Weekend Box Office #1

'Alien: Covenant' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Duke it Out for Weekend Box Office #1
This weekend could feature a little excitement at the top of the box office as Fox debuts Alien: Covenant into theaters domestically where it hopes to end the the two week reign of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the top of the box office and depending on who you ask it could go either way. Fox will also release the fourth film in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, and Warner Bros. is releasing Everything, Everything, based on the best-selling novel of the same name, hoping to find some of the magic they found last year in Me Before You. Starting with the battle between Alien: Covenant and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, we're currently anticipating a #1 finish for what is effectively now the eighth film in the Alien franchise. Covenant is a sequel to 2012's Prometheus, which is

The Preview Reel: Can a Wimpy Kid Take on Aliens and Everything?

Welcome to the “Preview Reel” column, where we look at this week’s upcoming wide release movies. This week features a trio of new releases, with one of them poised to knock Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 off the top spot. Alien: Covenant should debut at number one since it continues the popular and long-lasting Alien franchise, while Diary of the Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul looks to please the family crowd, and Everything, Everything goes after the teen romance crowd.

Alien: Covenant

What we are excited about: It’s another Alien movie. It’s directed by Ridley Scott. Michael Fassbender (arguably the best part of Prometheus [2012]) returns. As a fan of the Alien films, what more do you want? The trailers seem to show that the film is going back to its original horror roots, which is very exciting given the middling response some of the more recent

Tweeks: #NotMyRodrick

  • Comicmix
We have something very serious to discuss this week.

With the recasting for the 4th Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie: The Long Haul, the comedic soul of the series (and emo dream boy), Roderick Heffley has been replaced by an actor who looks like Johnny Depp’s Willy Wonka. And we know, like us, you won’t stand idle while this happens. Devon Bostick is Rodrick. He will always be Rodrick.

And if you have no idea what we’re talking about, you really need to get on your meme game — but we’ll explain the #NotMyRodrick movement to you anyway.

Well, it looks we have it with Early Man. A new teaser for the film dropped today, and its the latest from Nick Park, the man behind classics like Chicken Run, Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.

The Fosters Season 4 Episode 16 Review: The Long Haul

Mazel Tov to the happy couple! 

The Fosters is known for bringing on the drama at a break-neck pace. That's why when they choose to slow things down and give us a drama-lite installment, you cherish it for everything that it is.

There were so man feel-good feels on The Fosters Season 4 Episode 16. There were adorable couples and precious moments to be treasured throughout the entire hour.

I love the moms so much. My heart is bursting, and my eyes are teary.

Every time we're graced with the presence of legendary Annie Potts, it's bound  to be an absolute delight. Sharon is such a fun, lovable, eccentric character. 

She's the epitome of the "fun grandma," and she always comes with pearls of wisdom, heaping doses of wackiness, and a whole lot of love.

This time, she came with her beau, Will, played by the equally as lovable Rob Morrow. Of course,
