    Harvey Weinstein Says Long Delayed 'Shanghai' Coming This Year, Still Wants To Make 'Shakespeare In Love 2'

    While Harvey Weinstein usually lets his marketing department do the work for him, he's been working the press pretty hard himself the past few weeks. Not only does he have his little arthouse hit "The Intouchables" to stump for, but a slate of eagerly awaited films including John Hillc...

    Harvey Weinstein Says "Surprise" Co-Stars Could Still Join 'Django Unchained'

    We've all got to hand it to Harvey Weinstein. The guy plays an Academy voter room like a fiddle and he knows exactly what to say to entice the press as well. The Weinstein Company just showed off roughly 10 minutes of Quentin Tarantino's Western/slave drama "Django Unchained" to press today in Canne...

    Remember That Paul Potts Biopic? Harvey Weinstein Wants Katy Perry Or Adele To Play His Wife

    Does anyone still listen to Paul Potts? In case you forgot, he made a brief cultural splash a few years ago when he showed up on "Britain's Got Talent" and wowed audiences Susan Boyle-style, leading to a brief run of concerts and fame, before everyone moved to something else. But a mov...

    A Former Employee Asks Harvey Weinstein: Can You Stop Being a Bully?

    We've read -- and written -- a lot about "Bully" lately. It's helped produce the sort of PR bonanza for which the Weinsteins are known. "Bully" has also produced a curious side effect: Irony.

    Harvey Weinstein Threatens To Leave MPAA, Wants Lady Gaga & Michelle Obama To Help Him Get People To See 'Bully'

    The saga between Harvey Weinstein and MPAA deepens today. As you might remember, the ratings board slapped an R on the upcoming documentary "Bully," effectively preventing the very kids it was made for from seeing the film. Yesterday, Harvey attended an appeals hearing accompanied by Alex ...

    The third Monday in January is popularly known in Hollywood circles as "hungover-as-shit Monday," as it immediately follows the Golden Globes, the award season's drunker, more badly-behaved little cousin. Among all the questions raised by the Golden Globes last night (What was the point of asking a ...

    Harvey Weinstein Says 'Wettest County' Will Go To Venice, Was Moved To Capitalize On Tom Hardy's Post-'Dark Knight Rises' Fame

    Watch: Paul Rudd Presents 'Our Idiot Brother: The Hangover, Borat'

    There is probably no better (or controversial) marketer or movie hustler in the business than Harvey Weinstein. The man is capable of spinning almost anything into buzz about his movies (see last year's NC-17 rating of "Blue Valentine" which he promptly turned into a rallying point around the film), and putting Harvey into the awards season with a project to shill is like putting together peanut butter and chocolate. It's a no-brainer. And while movies that come out during the rest of the year may not get the full Harvey Weinstein treatment, if they can turn a modest profit and live a long life on DVD and digital, the honcho is more than happ...
