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.

20 Movie Auditions For Famous Roles You Need To See

16 September 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

YouTube

When it comes to the really iconic characters in film history, we tend to get tremendously attached to the actors that play them. We assign ownership to these characters, and kind of forget that they didn’t always belong to the actors that brought them to life. Luke Skywalker wasn’t always Mark Hamill, and Indiana Jones wasn’t always Harrison Ford. Once upon a time, these parts were up for grabs, and these actors had to audition for them just like everybody else, competing with hundreds of other hopefuls. It’s amazing to sit down and watch the auditions that landed them these fantastic roles, which effectively changed the course of their careers.

But equally interesting are the auditions of actors who, for whatever reason, didn’t get the part, but went on to become celebrities for their work on other projects regardless. It’s a classic what if scenario. »

George Clooney to receive HFPA's Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2015 Golden Globes

15 September 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

George Clooney's latest film "The Monuments Men" may have turned out to be an awards season bust (I still quite liked what he tried to do with that picture), but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a place in the season. Courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he'll need to dust off the tux and head to the Beverly Hilton for the Golden Globes in January because he's this year's recipient of the organization's Cecil B. DeMille Award. Previous recipients of the prize, awarded for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" (but generally perceived as a lifetime achievement honor of sorts), include Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese. The first annual honoree was DeMille himself in 1952, followed by the likes of Walt Disney, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, James Stewart, John Wayne and on and on. Clooney has always been »

While Miss America hasn’t bred any headline-stealing celebrities recently, beauty pageants were once a place where future stars got their start. Oprah was Miss Black Tennessee; Halle Berry was Miss Ohio. Vanessa Williams made it all the way to the top, nabbing the Miss America title in 1984.

20. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

Directed by: Terry Gilliam

So…drugs, right? Based on Hunter S. Thompson’s 1971 novel of the same title, Fear and Loathing stars Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro as Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo, respectively. The pair is heading to Sin City, speeding through the Nevada desert, under the influence of mescaline. From there, the film is series a bizarre hallucinations seen through the eyes of Duke. So, we jump from hotel room to hotel room, all of the action a blur of what is happening and what really isn’t. Throughout the course of the film, Duke and/or Gonzo ingest the following drugs: mescaline, sunshine acid, diethyl ether, LSD, cocaine, and adenochrome (probably more). Duke – who is a Thompson stand-in – is supposed to be writing an article before heading back to Los Angeles, but tends to get sidetracked quite a bit. In »

Toronto’s 7 Biggest Career Reinventions

11 September 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Toronto has always been a place for reinvention — in 2008, Anne Hathaway came to the festival marred by her ex-boyfriend’s federal arrest, and left as an Oscar darling for “Rachel Getting Married.” And in 2013, Sandra Bullock launched as an astronaut in “Gravity,” and Jared Leto returned to acting with “Dallas Buyers Club.” But this year, especially, a handful of actors departed Canada with a new career jolt. Here are the biggest Toronto transformations.

1. Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”)

Redmayne delivered impressive supporting work in film like 2012’s “Les Miserables” and 2011’s “My Week With Marilyn.” But his magnificent performance as Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything” should land him on Hollywood’s leading man list, and get him his first Oscar nomination. In a physical transformation on par with Matthew McConaughey in “Dallas Buyers Club,” Redmayne embodies Hawking to the point of convincing viewers they are watching a documentary. »

Required Reading: Robert De Niro’s Face and Al Pacino’s Eras

11 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Robert De Niro and the origin of ‘The Face’” — Scott Tobias at The Dissolve winces to remember a time when his heroes let him down, but takes comfort in knowing that a cliche was born as a sincere comic move. “The 7 Eras of Al Pacino” — Stephen Marchie at Esquire subdivides a career by loudness. “The Death of Adulthood in American Culture” — A.O. Scott at The New York Times Magazine adds to the conversation about maturity in our popular art (while opening up some fresh thought-wounds). He also makes me want to see Don Draper star in a new adaptation of “Huckleberry Finn.” “Maybe nobody grows up anymore, but everyone gets older. What happens to the boy rebels when the dream of perpetual childhood fades and the traditional prerogatives of manhood are unavailable? There »

Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway were captured filming a scene for their upcoming movie The Intern at a park in Brooklyn.

Robert DeNiro, Anne Hathaway Film 'The Intern'

DeNiro and Hathaway were shooting a scene in which they performed Tai Chi on Thursday. For the day on set, DeNiro was dressed comfortably in navy blue sweatpants, a pullover and sneakers. Hathaway, not quite as well dressed for the exercise, sported a sweater, jeans and loafers. The two Oscar-winning actors were joined in the Chinese martial art by a number of others who looked a bit more practiced in the technique.

In The Intern, Hathaway – who played an assistant to a fashion editor in Devil Wears Prada – plays Julie Ostin, the founder of a fashion-centric e-commerce company. DeNiro plays her elderly intern Ben Whittaker, who gets involved with the company via a community outreach program. Initially, Julie is dismissive of Ben, »
