New Dad Ryan Gosling Returns to Work (and Grows a Mustache!) After Birth of Baby Girl Esmeralda—See the Pic!

24 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Apparently, part of Ryan Gosling's daddy duties is to grow some manly facial hair. The new parent made his post-baby debut today when he returned to work on his film The Nice Guys in Atlanta, and we couldn't help but notice that 'stache on his face! Perhaps being a father has given him less time to groom his face? Or maybe his character in the movie calls for some upper lip fur? Or! Maybe Gosling is getting a head start on Movember?! Either way, it's Ryan Gosling and he looks perfect. The Shane Black-helmed flick is set in 1970s Los Angeles and follows a private eye (Gosling) and a muscle-for-hire (Russell Crowe) who must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the »

So far, we know that Ryan Gosling is on board to play Holland March, a socially-inept L.A. private detective who befriends Russell Crowe’s musclebound goon. Why do they hook up? Does it matter? After all, this is Shane Black, who could make a fast-paced, dialogue-rich movie out of a discarded shopping list. But alright, for those who want to know, the pair join forces to solve the mystery of a missing girl and the death of a porn star.

58th BFI London Film Festival – The Way He Looks (2014)

19 October 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Way He Looks (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho), 2014.

Directed by Daniel Ribeiro.

Starring Ghilherme Lobo, Fabio Audi and Tess Amorim.

Synopsis:

A blind teenage boy falls in love with one of his classmates.

There’s a particular branch of film theory that deals entirely with the sense of touch in cinema; about how you experience what the protagonist feels onscreen. Not in some emotional, empathetic way, but as a physical response. The reeds on Russell Crowe’s hands as he wonders through Gladiator’s Elysian fields. The taste of the scrambled eggs at Michael Fassbender’s bedside in Hunger. The knee being caved in by the hammer of Kill List. It’s called ‘haptic visuality‘. In The Way He Looks, it’s ones lips practicing a kiss on the window of a shower.

The film’s title is a pun, so the movie had won points before it began. »

Logan Lerman recalls going through the grinder of grueling 'Fury' shoot

17 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

David Ayer's "Fury" rumbles into theaters today. We've talked to Ayer, we've talked to composer Steven Price and now, one of the stand-outs from the cast, Logan Lerman. Lerman has been carving an interesting path for himself ever since he started in this business as a young boy. He debuted alongside Mel Gibson in 2000's "The Patriot," though most probably sat up and took notice in TV's "Jack & Bobby" or James Mangold's "3:10 to Yuma" remake. He's dabbled in franchise ("Percy Jackson") and sparked on the indie scene ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower"). This year he's in a pair of epic productions from Ayer and Darren Aronofsky ("Noah"). In "Fury," his character is very much the eyes through which the audience experiences the world of the film and he's a great anchor throughout. In "Noah," meanwhile, he's paired with Russell Crowe again after working with him in »

Ryan Gosling Wanted for 'Doctor Strange' and 'Suicide Squad'

15 October 2014 6:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the many actors notorious for not giving into the franchise machine is Ryan Gosling, but that may change as three major studios are courting him for three big movies, including Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad and The Secret Life of Houdini.

In the recent past, Ryan Gosling has refused to give into the temptations of a super hero movie, especially one that would require him to sign on for sequels. But the actor may be softening his stance on that, unlike Joaquin Phoenix who walked away from the Doctor Strange role.

The actor is confirmed to have met with Marvel for Doctor Strange, and he has an offer out for Summit's The Secret Life of Houdini, which is now subtitled The Making of America's First Superhero. Sources close to the actor also reveal that he is being aggressively courted for a role in the DC villain ensemble action-adventure Suicide Squad, »
