Will 'The Equalizer's success pressure Denzel into Neeson Season?

1 hour ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It was a good run, Liam Neeson. The 62-year-old who was Oskar Schindler and Alfred Kinsey spent the last seven years kicking the crap out of much younger bad guys in bone-crushing B-movies, best epitomized by the Taken films. But as of this past weekend, there’s a new sheriff in town. Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington, one of the biggest movie stars of the past 25 years, and almost always, the coolest guy in the room, delivered his 12th No. 1 film, The Equalizer.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), The Equalizer is a Neeson-ized adaptation of the 1980s CBS detective »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

22 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Anne Hathaway Says Fame 'F--ked Me Up'

29 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Anne Hathaway, the Oscar-winning actress, recently admitted that achieving fame was a difficult experience for her.

Anne Hathaway On Fame

"This fame thing? F--ked me up for a really long time," Hathaway told Elle U.K. "I didn't know how to do it; I didn't know how to engage with it; it stressed me out. And people would say, 'You just have to be yourself,' and I was like, 'But I don't know who that is yet!'"

The media attention on Hathaway reached an all-time high following her performance as Fantine in Tom Hooper's Les Miserables. Though Hathaway earned an Oscar for the performance, she also received a fair amount of criticism – which mostly consisted of personal attacks that had little to do with her acting chops. A couple years removed from the worst of it, Hathaway says she’s no longer troubled by others’ perceptions.

Leonardo DiCaprio to produce Yellowstone female alpha wolf movie

29 September 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is to produce American Wolf.

The film will be an adaptation of Nate Blakeslee's book about O-Six, the famous female leader of a wolfpack at Yellowstone National Park.

In 2010, there was an outcry as she was legally shot by a hunter, which led many to campaign for new hunting regulations.

The book has yet to be completed, but the Wolf of Wall Street star has already signed on to produce the film version.

DiCaprio will produce alongside Kevin McCormick (Gangster Squad), but while publishing rights were recently bought for a seven-figure sum by Crown in the Us and Knopf in Canada, no further details of the project have been announced.

DiCaprio has recently been appointed Messenger of Peace for the United Nations.

It was also revealed that he will star alongside Brad Pitt and Robert De Niro in a short film by Martin Scorsese. »

‘It’s Alive! It’s Alive!’ Why Hollywood Keeps Trying To Spark Life Into Frankenfilms

27 September 2014 6:12 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Filmmakers have been obsessed with Frankenstein since James Whale brought Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel to life and instantly gave birth to an iconic monster franchise that remains a major priority for Universal. It’s one of the most important public domain properties in fiction, but reanimating the Green Guy into a worthy anti-hero isn’t easy. Everyone from Kenneth Branagh, Robert De Niro and Aaron Eckhart have discovered you need more than neck bolts to spark a good movie. The futility hasn’t stopped Candyman and Immortal Beloved director Bernard Rose, who’s returning to horror filmmaking with his own modern take on the Frankenstein legend. He shot his in downtown Los Angeles, with Xavier Samuel, Carrie-Anne Moss, Danny Huston, and Tony Todd starring in a Frankenfilm set against the backdrop of the contemporary 3D bio-printing revolution. “They’re already 3D-printing organs, so to actually print an entire human being »

New York Film Festival preview: 10 films that can make it anywhere

26 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The film-festival circuit this time of year is not unlike presidential-primary season. Venice or Telluride are sort of like the Iowa caucus, an important first step for a film to generate some name recognition and Oscar buzz—but not exactly the setting for a coronation. Toronto is the traditional Oscar-campaign battleground, a sort of New Hampshire primary that often separates the contenders from the pretenders. Last year, Toronto unofficially nominated 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and Dallas Buyers Club, and those films went on to collect major awards.

But this year, the races still remain wide open after the first new rounds, »

Batista Cast In “Bus 657″ with Gina Carano, Robert De Niro

25 September 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Former WWE champion, Evolution member, and Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista (Batista to WWE fans) has signed on to an upcoming Robert De Niro film, Bus 657, which will also feature former women’s Mma pioneer Gina Carano.

Bautista won rave reviews for his performance as Drax the Destroyer in Guardians, which has surpassed the $600 million mark at the box office worldwide. Kate Bosworth and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Watchmen) also star in the upcoming heist flick.

In Bus 657, Bautista will portray a co-worker of Morgan who together rip off their casino-owner boss, De Niro. While hijacking a bus load full of hostages, the plan goes awry, and, one assumes, everything goes to hell.

According to Deadline, Carano, who had been in serious talks with the Ufc for a potential title fight with bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, will be playing a cop in pursuit of the hijacked bus. »

Lois Lane and The Comedian Join Drax In De Niro's 'Bus 657'

25 September 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It may be a low-budget affair, but the $15 million film Bus 657 is attracting quite a cast. Deadline is reporting that, aside from all ready nabbing Robert De Niro, the cast will now also include Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) and Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns). The film, which is set to start filming next month, will center on a heist and the subsequent hostage situation that ensues after it.

Morgan plays a desperate man with a sick daughter and seemingly no way to pay for her necessary treatment. When a greedy co-worker played by Dave Bautista (Guardians of The Galaxy) suggests that they rob a casino as a way to get the necessary cash, it sets a dangerous plan in motion that eventually includes the two men capturing a bus full of innocent people. De Niro plays the casino owner, and Bosworth is his estranged daughter. Last, but not least, Gina Carano »

Watch: 'Nightcrawler' Star Jake Gyllenhaal Looks Into Eyes of Coyote

24 September 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In this well-reviewed Los Angeles noir, the actor transforms himself physically into pale, gaunt Lou Bloom, a dangerous sociopathic creep in the vein of Robert De Niro's Travis Bickle in "Taxi Driver." Chasing after visceral and bloody video footage of fires, car crashes, and murder victims, Gyllenhaal's nightcrawler is magnetic and charming, a loser who wants to be a winner and doesn't care what he does to get there. And Bloom's sexually-charged dalliance with a desperate-for-ratings TV news director (an excellent Renee Russo) displays the ugly underside of today's local newscasts. "In a world where important information is no longer important because unimportant information is important, where everything is on an equal footing, we just need more of it, the parent in this movie really becomes us, the audience, asking for more, needing more and so we enable a character like Lou to be justified to do what he does. »

Exclusive: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kate Bosworth, Dave Bautista, and Gina Carano are joining the Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films production of Bus 657, the ensemble heist pic that Robert De Niro already has boarded.

De Niro will play Frank “The Pope”, owner of the casino, and Bosworth plays his estranged daughter. »

Genre Films Can Break the Oscar Norm

24 September 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance as a sleazy freelance TV reporter determined to go to any length in search of crime footage in Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler could get him “recognized as one of the most daring actors working in Hollywood today” and has been called some of the “best work of his career.” With this type of praise, award contention usually follows, but historically speaking, “genre films” don’t fare well at the Oscars. It’s not impossible for films that deviate from the Oscar norm — biopics, period pieces or dramas — to secure Oscar nominations for the actors involved, but looking back through the years, from 2000 to the present, shows that these films constitute a lower percentage of overall nominees.

Musicals are a type of “genre film” that actors have managed to score Oscar nominations for, though they have had more difficulty doing so since the late 60s. »

Sopranos Actress Bergen, the Movies' '1st Female President' of the United States, Dead at 84

20 September 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Polly Bergen dead at 84: ‘First woman president of the U.S.A.,’ former mistress of Tony Soprano’s father Emmy Award-winning actress Polly Bergen — whose roles ranged from the first U.S.A. woman president in Kisses for My President to the former mistress of both Tony Soprano’s father and John F. Kennedy in the television hit series The Sopranos — died from "natural causes" on September 20, 2014, at her home in Southbury, Connecticut. The 84-year-old Bergen, a heavy smoker for five decades, had been suffering from emphysema and other ailments since the 1990s. "Most people think I was born in a rich Long Island family," she told The Washington Post in 1988, but Polly Bergen was actually born Nellie Paulina Burgin on July 14, 1930, to an impoverished family in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her father was an illiterate construction worker while her mother got only as far as the third grade. The family »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Fall Films

Movie ticketing service Fandango has released the results of a survey they have conducted to find the anticipated movies of the Fall film season. Unsurprisingly, the juggernaut of a sequel "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I" stands at number one.

After that came David Fincher's "Gone Girl," Chris Nolan's "Interstellar" and the Denzel Washington-led "The Equalizer. Rounding out the top ten are "The Penguins of Madagascar," "The Judge," "Dumb and Dumber To," "Fury," "The Good Lie" and "Foxcatcher". [Source: The Wrap]

Andrew Rannells talks 'Hedwig' pressure, 'Girls' Broadway connections

16 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Broadway’s most exhilarating rock concert burst onto the boards earlier this year when Neil Patrick Harris stepped into the silky fishnets of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, earning a Tony for the role and ushering the East German rocker into the hands of a new generation of fans. After Harris departed the show in August, The Book of Mormon veteran Andrew Rannells was tapped to fill Hedwig’s high heels. To say his turn is electric, heartbreaking, and wholly different from Harris’ would still be underselling the performance.
