Long hair, don't care! Shailene Woodley was spotted on the set of the "Snowden" biopic in Honolulu, Hawaii on Thursday ... though we barely recognized her with all that hair. The actress didn't look like herself, sporting long brown hair extensions for her role as Edward Snowden's girlfriend, Lindsay Mills. The young star was dressed down for the scene, rocking long denim shorts, a black T-shirt, minimal makeup and no shoes. The Oliver Stone directed biopic -- which will follow the life of Snowden, a former CIA employee who leaked thousands of classified information to the press -- boasts a pretty impressive cast, too. Woodley stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Snowden), Nicolas Cage, Scott Eastwood, Zachary Quinto and Joely Richardson in the biographic thriller. While we think Woodley can rock any look, we've gotten used to her with slightly shorter tresses. What do you think about the 23-year-old's movie makeunder? Tell »

When she was ten years old, Marya E. Gates’ favorite actor was Nicolas Cage. That’s not the only thing you need to know about her, but it’s definitely important. She’s also currently spending an entire year watching only movies directed by women, and she’s our guest co-host this week. We’ll have a thorough, frank discussion about her experience watching movies made by women, the challenges facing female directors and the potential solutions to bring greater equality and more voices to the studio system. Plus, we’ll lighten things up a bit by celebrating the hallmark style of 80s movies. Naturally that involves a lot of lace and werewolf fur.

Cage and Charles became attached in January with Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s TWC-Dimension acquiring North American rights. The script was written by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph and is loosely based on a GQ article by Chris Heath about Gary Faulkner, an ex-con who made 11 attempts to travel to the most volatile region of Pakistan to capture Osama bin Laden, armed with only a sword.

Taking a break from his latterday role as revolutionary political Jesus, Russell Brand has signed up for a Nicolas Cage comedy, joining the zen warlock for Army Of One. Larry Charles (Borat, Curb Your Enthusiasm) is directing, and has also been rounding out the rest of his cast with Rainn Wilson, Denis O’Hare, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer and Wendi McLendon-Covey.The film is adapted by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph from a stranger-than-fiction GQ article by Chris Heath (perhaps strangely, given Brand's antipathy for one of that publication's recent sponsors).The story revolves around Colorado resident Gary Faulkner, who decided in 2010 that he was going to be the man to take down Osama Bin Laden. His plan was to track down and wipe out the most wanted man on the planet armed only with a sword he bought from a home shopping network, a pair of night-vision goggles and »
Despite the title, Nicolas Cage won’t be left all alone in Army of One. In fact, he’s just picked up a bunch of very funny co-stars.

Outcast, a period actioner starring Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen, is Nick Powell’s first directing feature after progressing from stuntman to several assistant director credits, and whatever may be wrong with the film, it’s an impressive effort on that front.
The story is that of Gallain (Cage) and Jacob (Christensen), two Crusaders who ultimately lose their faith in the butchery, though at different times, and in different ways. Actually, the story is only sideways about anything, and is in some sense far more the story of a Chinese Prince, and his struggle to become emperor, but it’s only about that in rather a lazy way.
As the movie kicks off, the Crusades have come to… parts east, and Gallain has lost interest in the idea. Beyond that, he isn’t comfortable with how enthusiastic Jacob seems to be. Gallain wants to take Jacob out of their life, »

It’s almost as if indie filmmaker David Gordon Green has been checking items off his bucket list. In 2012 he finally worked with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch in “Prince Avalanche” (two actors he had meant to collaborate with in the past) and then he started going after some big fish. 2014 you’ve got Nicolas Cage in the underrated “Joe” (which features a nice, almost uncharacteristically subtle Nic Cage performance) and this year he’s hooked Al Pacino for his latest picture, “Manglehorn” (and up next is a George Clooney-produced movie starring Sandra Bullock). Pacino seems more than game these days too as he’s working with Harmony Korine next, and it appears that Green caught him at the perfect point in time.

Director Simon West made Tomb Raider, The Expendables 2 and Con Air, and has shuttled stars such as Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie and Sylvester Stallone to some of their biggest box-office successes. He’s a blockbuster film-maker, but his new film – Salty – couldn’t be more indie.
West has invited public investors, by using the equity crowdfunding platform SyndicateRoom, to buy shares in Salty in order to fund production. The project has broken UK crowdfunding records, reaching £1.9m last month. This is the first time members of the public have been given the chance to buy shares in a film’s major returns, so now all eyes are on Salty – to see what West can deliver for his many investors. »

Despite Nicolas Cage’s questionable accent and the familiarity of the plot, Outcast manages to be an entertaining film for fans of the action adventure genre.The film has decent battle sequences and a pace fast enough for the audience not to notice some of its shortcomings. It also has some comical moments thanks to Cage’s gonzo performance as “The White Ghost.” Directed by Nick Powell from a screenplay by James Dormer, Outcast sees Cage joined by Hayden Christensen, Andy On, Yifei Liu, Fernando Chien and Anoja Dias Bolt.The film kicks off during the Crusades of the 12th Century where the audience […] »

“Fast & Furious 7” topped the weekly Chinese box office chart with just Sunday’s monster score counting towards its total.
According to data from local box office service Ent Group, the action thriller scored $63.2 million, a figure that is a shade lower than the $68.6 million number that Universal reported and lower than other local estimates which ranged $66-$67 million.
But even the lower figure was enough to obliterate records in China for the biggest opening day and the biggest single day takings. Those landmarks had been set last year by “Transformers: Age of Ultron” last year.
The super score was also some $27 million ahead of the seven day figure achieved by second placed film, the local war actioner “Wolf Warriors” which scored $36.1 million. After 11 days “Wolf Warriors” has an impressive $69.7 million.
Third placed “Let’s Get Married” added $19.19 million over the week to lift its 11 days total to $43.4 million.

Brett Ratner has teamed up with Mariah Carey to develop a new Christmas movie, which New Line Cinema already bought. At this point, very little is known about the project, except that it will focus on the holiday and a message that music can transport you back to happy times. The new movie is being written by David Diamond and David Weissman, who previously worked with Ratner on "The Family Man," starring Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni. The plan is to include songs from different artists, including Carrey. The Christmas holiday is special for Carey, who wrote and performed "All I Want for Christmas Is You," a 1994 tune that has sold more than 14 million copies globally to become the biggest holiday son in recent memory and the biggest international hit of Carey's career. »

Nicolas Cage is a workhorse and may be one of the busiest actors today. In an era where big name actors might release a single movie per year, Cage typically comes out with three, four or even five. At any given time he may have over a half dozen movies in various stages of production. Cage is a good actor, often a very good actor, and has made some very entertaining movies that stand up to repeat viewings. I enjoy much of what he does from the over-the-top supernatural action-horror movies “Ghost Rider” and “Drive Angry,” to the adventure-mystery “National Treasure” franchise and his voice work for about a half-dozen animated movies. His list of credits and genres is vast and, if his movie output is any indication, he’s a very busy guy. This can be a good thing for Cage fans, but may result in »

Producers are planning to include songs from Carey and other artists. Carey wrote and performed 1994’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which sold more than 14 million copies.
