Shia Labeouf Flaunts Ripped Chest, Talks Painful Relationship With His Father

13 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Shia Labeouf seems like a bit of a tortured soul. The "Fury" actor covers the latest issue of Interview magazine, where he appears wearing just a towel and opens up about his difficult relationship with his father. The 28-year-old looks ripped in the accompanying spread, flaunting his big biceps in the pics. The "Even Stevens" star also gets extremely candid about his relationship with his estranged father, calling their dynamic a "negative gift." "The only thing my father gave me that was of any value to me is pain," he tells the mag. "The only time my dad will ever talk to me is when I need him at work. He knows to pick up the Skype phone call, and he knows what I’m looking for. It’s not to say ‘Hey, Dad.’ We manipulate each other. We service each other. I use him when I go to work. »

Bradley Walsh not planning to quit The Chase: "Long may it reign"

20 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Bradley Walsh has insisted that he has no plans to quit The Chase.

Earlier this year, Paul Sinha - one of the show's professional quizzers - claimed that the daytime hit wouldn't survive without its current host.

Walsh - who will soon host new ITV game show Keep It in the Family - told Digital Spy that his other commitments will not impact on The Chase.

"I really love doing The Chase - long may it reign," he said.

"Keep It in the Family is peak time viewing at the weekend, The Chase is a daytime show - a five o'clock gig - so they're two separate things."

Keep It in the Family features three generations of rival families going head-to-head for prizes - but the twist is that the kids are the ones in charge, deciding which family member plays each game and which prizes they compete for.

Parents & Frequent Moviegoers Are Desensitized To Violence, Sex In Film; Likely So Is MPAA Ratings Board: Study

20 October 2014 12:01 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After surveying 1,000 parents exposed to multiple clips of on-screen sex and violence in movies, a study found that parents become increasingly desensitized to acts of sex and violence with repeated viewing which appears to lead to an increasing acceptance to both. The result is that these parents are less likely to shield their kids from movies that contain sex and violence. In addition, the authors note that people who rate movies for the MPAA (themselves parents) could also be subject to the same desensitization “and thus more likely to be lenient when it comes to evaluating the appropriateness of such content for children.” Those behind the study said this effect could help to explain the “ratings creep” that has allowed more violence into films aimed at our youth.

The MPAA has long acknowledged that its standards have shifted over time but has traditionally attributed this to the changing standards of parents. »

Bart & Fleming: WB’s Spandex Od; Ebola The Series; Neil Patrick Harris Near Egot

19 October 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes, mostly on the movie business.

Fleming: Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu told me he sees superhero movies as right-wing poison and cultural genocide for their simplistic values that stamp out human truths. Warner Bros’ Kevin Tsujihara told Wall Street his slumping film studio will turn around via a full program of 10 DC Comics tent poles to be released 2016-2020.

Will Smith and Tom Hardy are in talks to star in Fury director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and 2016 also brings Batman V Superman; 2017 brings Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Justice League; 2018 brings Ezra Miller as The Flash and Jason Momoa as Aquaman; 2019 brings Shazam and Justice League 2; Ray Fisher stars in Cyborg and a Green Lantern reboot arrives for 2020.

Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Bang Bang’ Sets Box Office Record

19 October 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hrithik Roshan starrer “Bang Bang,” a Fox Star remake of Tom Cruise-toplined “Knight and Day,” has set a box office record for Bollywood films in North America by reaching a total gross of $2.56 million making it the top Hindi movie of the year in the continent.

Co-starring Katrina Kaif, the film in its third week at the box office passed earlier Bollywood hit “Kick,” which stars Salman Khan and reached $2.47 million in North America where it’s playing in 100 screens.

However, worldwide gross puts “Bang Bang” at $52 million and that makes it No. 2 to “Kick’s” $61 million.

But Fox Star Studios chief Vijay Singh told the Financial Express, “There is no other release till ‘Happy New Year’ and so the winning streak should continue. The film has got a great scale to it and outstanding action. We released it outside of India in over 850 theaters, which is the biggest release for any Bollywood film. »

19 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif blockbuster Bang Bang has just beaten Salman Khan’s “Kick” to become the highest grossing Bollywood film of 2014 in North America. After its third weekend of release, “Bang Bang” has raised its total gross to $2.56 million surpassing the $2.47 million total of “Kick” from this past summer.

Still playing in over 100 theaters across the United States and Canada, the Hrithik-Katrina hit from Fox Star Studios also set the record earlier this month for the biggest Bollywood opening weekend in all of 2014.

The film has actually hit over 300 crores worldwide making it one of the biggest hits of the year!

A remake of Knight and Day that starred Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, this Bollywood reimagining was directed by Siddharth Anand! It tells the tale of a chance encounter of the unassuming bank receptionist Harleen Sahni (Katrina Kaif) with the charming yet mysterious Rajveer Nanda (Hrithik Roshan »

Emma Stone and the Cast of Birdman Know Their Underwear

17 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Emma Stone, Edward Norton, and Zach Galifianakis star in the much buzzed about dark comedy Birdman, which also marks the return of its star Michael Keaton to the big screen. While the film deals with an aging star’s struggle with his career, ego, and personal life as he tries to mount a Broadway show, one of the most memorable scenes in the movie has Keaton running around Times Square with only his tighty whities to support him.

In honor of this cinematic spectacle, we challenged the cast (which also includes Naomi Watts, rising star Andrea Riseborough, and The Office’s Amy Ryan) to identify other actors who dared to bare their briefs on screen, including Tom Cruise, Jason Segel, Rhys Ifans, and Birdman’s own Zach Galifianakis, who believes he’s very skilled at ID-ing his own body. »

'Birdman' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About Michael Keaton's Big Comeback Movie

17 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Keaton is perhaps best known for playing Batman in a pair of Tim Burton-directed superhero movies, whose visionary tone has set the standard for the genre until this day. And now he's stepping back into the superhero suit (sort of) for "Birdman," the latest film from "Babel" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

"Birdman" tells the story of an actor who has been immortalized in a series of superhero movies (played, obviously, by Keaton), who decides to attempt a comeback by writing, directing, and starring in a stage adaptation of a Raymond Carver story. Of course, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. (Andrea Riseborough, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, and Emma Stone co-star.)

So why is everyone talking about this relatively little movie that could conceivably do very big things? Read on to find out!

Abu Dhabi: Twofour54 Thrives as Mideast’s Content Capital

16 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Since it was set up in 2008, named for Abu Dhabi’s geographic coordinates, Twofour54 has become a multifaceted media zone with the purpose of growing Abu Dhabi into the region’s leading content creation hub.

“CNN has a building in Dubai Media City with their big logo; but that’s their ad sales office. Their editorial office instead is based in Abu Dhabi at Twofour54,” proudly points out Jamal Al Awadhi, head of commercial for the company’s Intaj production arm.

Fox Intl. also airs out of Twofour54. A Ubisoft gaming academy in the zone recently spawned popular Las Vegas-set “CSI: Hidden Crimes” mobile phone app, the first mobile game developed, written and designed out of Abu Dhabi.

“The big differentiator for us is that we’re focused on content,” says Intaj executive director Paul Baker, a former U.S. sales exec for Blighty’s Pinewood Studios. “Abu Dhabi wants »

20 Actors Whose Iconic Characters All Need to Team Up in Their Own Movies

16 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Let’s call this pitch Filmography Expendables. Take an actor or actress, list his or her best characters and throw them in a movie together as a team of awesomeness. Or, since I’m still certain we’re heading into a “Vs.” movie trend — and the “Civil War” idea for Captain America 3, where Cap fights Iron Man, is further evidence — take a star’s best two characters and pit them against each other. We’re talking gold right there. The necessary effects are there and have been long enough that I’m surprised we haven’t seen more action sequences where an actor is fighting himself as clones or lookalikes or something like that. Oblivion gave us Tom Cruise versus Tom Cruise, but now the next step is to see Ethan Hunt go up against Jack Reacher (it could easily happen since both are from Paramount properties), and then of course they finish in a draw »

Watch: Katie Holmes Goes Ballistic In New Trailer For 'Miss Meadows'

16 October 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before she was Mrs. Tom Cruise, when Dawson’s Creek was her place of residence, Katie Holmes was still a total sweetheart. Her “aw-shucks” demeanor and girl-next-door good looks were a charming point of contrast to so many synthetically-enhanced Hollywood beauties, and she’s managed to deliver a couple of arresting performances in films like Doug Liman’s “Go,” “Pieces of April” and the magnificent “Wonder Boys.” So when one thinks of Holmes, one does not think of a homicidal homebody bent on revenge while wearing Sunday school clothes. Yet that’s exactly what the trailer for “Miss Meadows,” the offbeat new film from Karen Leigh Hopkins (“Because I Said So”) delivers. So… if you really wanted to see Katie Holmes slipping into “Dirty Harry” mode…  you’re in luck. The trailer opts for a wobbly, morally neutral tone: we open on a distractingly cartoonish pastiche of suburban Americana, with »

From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.

Edge Of Tomorrow Blu-Ray Review

15 October 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Doug Liman

Starring: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson

Certificate: 15

Extras: Operation Downfall – Adrenaline Cut, Storming The Beach, Weapons Of The Future, Creatures Not Of This World, On The Edge With Doug Liman, Deleted Scenes

People can be split into two groups; those that think Tom Cruise is the finest leading man of a generation, adding energy and quality to all the films he’s worked on- and those that would like to see him killed over and over again. Well, the stars have aligned and humanity can unite, as Edge Of Tomorrow serves both camps.

Cruise plays Cage, a battle-shy army major demoted to private following an act of cowardice. Unfortunately for Cage, his slip in rank coincides with a seemingly un-winnable war against super- intelligent Matrix-esque metallic octopus aliens. So far, so silly (but good silly like Starship Troopers, not bad silly like Pacific Rim »

Close Quarters Cosplay released a music video they put together feature some incredibly awesome cosplay that fans were wearing around the Javits Convention Center at New York Comic Con this last weekend.

You can see it in the picture above. That thing just looks badass. There's more cool stuff to see in the video, though, so check it out!

Chester See Coming To Broadway As ‘Rock Of Ages’ Cast Member

14 October 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Chester See is coming to Broadway. The YouTuber whose powerful voice and handsome look has helped him amass more than 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube, has been cast in Rock of Ages, the long-running musical featuring music from the 80s. See will play the role of Stacee Jaxx, a rock star and one of the show's central characters. Coincidentally, the original Los Angeles production of Rock of Ages featured Chris Hardwick, another performer with a big YouTube presence, as Jaxx. In the 2012 film adaptation of the musical, Jaxx was portrayed by Tom Cruise. Matt Weaver, the producer of Rock of Ages, explained that he chose See after being impressed by his audition. "I looked at this as an exciting opportunity to do something that wouldn't be expected," he said. "He's got a real audience at YouTube, he's got a real voice there, and I think that audience is going to travel to Broadway. »

How Felicity Jones won the blessing of Stephen Hawking's wife

14 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When The Theory of Everything debuted at the Toronto Film Festival, audiences couldn't stop talking about Eddie Redmayne, who generated instant Oscar buzz for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking, the British cosmologist who's spent most of his adult life in a wheelchair and speaking through a computer. The praise is well-deserved. Hawking might be the story, but the film is based on the book of his first wife, Jane, played by Felicity Jones. They married in 1965, shortly after Hawking was diagnosed with autoimmune disease and doctors estimated he only had two years to live. With her unflagging devotion, Hawking went »

Lorde Proves She's Awesome By Singing 'I Am Lorde Ya Ya Ya' From 'South Park'

14 October 2014 12:41 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The 17-year-old pop star is taking South Park's gentle mocking in stride.

South Park makes fun of everyone. A lot of celebrities, such as Tom Cruise, Kanye West, and Jennifer Lopez to name a few, don't necessarily find the humor in the show's gentle jests.

But sometimes, you get a star like Lorde, who doesn't mind getting poked fun at, and even finds it kind of funny.

Video: Lorde Releases New Single From 'The Hunger Games'

On last week's episode of South Park, the show claimed that Lorde wasn't actually a 17-year-old pop singer from New Zealand, but was in fact a 42-year-old male geologist from South Park, Colorado. To be more specific, he was fan favorite Randy Marsh, who ended up performing Lorde's hit single "I Am Lorde, Ya, Ya, Ya."

After the episode aired, which was the second episode to feature Randy Marsh as Lorde, the pop singer »

DVD Review: 'Edge of Tomorrow'

13 October 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's All You Need is Kill, Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow (2014) is a rare beast: an actioner with an abundance of charm and wit. Contorting the classic hero's journey of redemption and sacrifice into a high concept allegory for how history has a tendency to repeat itself, the film sees Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt facing destiny head-on. In an attempt to win the PR battle in a war long lost, Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is removed from his comfy orator role and thrown into the frontline against a formidable alien foe. Enclosed in the biosuit the Allies hope will win the war, Cage is shipped across the Channel to storm the beaches of Normandy in one last big push against the enemy.
