Thanks to Empire Online we’ve got a new still from Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) upcoming fairy tale musical Into the Woods featuring Meryl Streep (August: Osage County), who plays a witch responsible for putting a curse on a baker and his wife, played by James Corden (One Chance) and Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow)…

Jack Huston is the latest name rumored for Doctor Strange

26 August 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Take this news with a grain of salt, but according to This Is Infamous, Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston is in the running to play the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange film.

While the up-and-coming actor’s reps refused to comment, the site claims that its sources “confirm that Jack Huston is under consideration to take the Doctor Strange lead and is definitely in the running.”

If true, Huston is now one of many in contention for the role. Over the last few months, several names have been added to the mix, including Benedict Cumberbatch (who has denied involvement), Tom Hardy, Johnny Depp, Jared Leto, Deliver Us From Evil‘s Edgar Ramirez, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jon Hamm, who This Is Infamous actually claimed had been cast with their last Doctor Strange scoop.

DVD Review: 'Transcendence'

26 August 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆From former Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister and packing an all-star cast, there were plenty of reasons to be excited about Transcendence (2014). Sadly, the end result is a disappointing mess of a movie which fails to deliver on its strong premise. Transcendence follows Will Caster (Johnny Depp), one of the leading minds in artificial intelligence research along with his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall). That makes them the target of anti-tech extremists, and an assassination attempt leaves Will wounded and dying from a radioactive bullet. With time running out, Evelyn and colleague Max (Paul Bettany) hatch a desperate plan to upload Will's consciousness into a sentient A.I. construct.

Jack Huston Rumored For "Doctor Strange"

25 August 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Another name has been added to the fire of casting rumors surrounding Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange" project - Jack Huston.

This Is Infamous reports that "Boardwalk Empire" and "American Hustle" star Huston is the latest candidate, and the actor is "definitely in the running" but doesn't mention if previous actors linked to the project are also still in the running including Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy and Joaquin Phoenix.

31-year-old Huston has been rumored for several Marvel roles before - he was up for Doctor Doom in the "Fantastic Four" reboot, and was a finalist for the Star-Lord role in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy". He's well regard by his peers, but isn't a box-office name which would make sense for a part that requires a multiple film commitment.

How reliable is the rumor? On the one hand Huston is on many people's castings lists for »

'Doctor Strange' Wants 'Boardwalk Empire' Star Jack Huston?

25 August 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There have been no shortage of casting rumors when it comes to Marvel Studios' next big project, the Phase Three adventure Doctor Strange, which already has Scott Derrickson attached to direct from a script by Jon Spaihts. Actors such as Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, Joaquin Phoenix and, most recently, Jon Hamm have been mentioned as possible candidates over the past year. But the role has still not been officially cast yet. Today, This Is Infamous reports that Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston is the latest candidate.

The site's sources reveal the actor is "definitely in the running," although it isn't known if any of the previously-mentioned actors are still in contention as well. Jack Huston was previously one of the finalists for the Star-Lord role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which was eventually won by Chris Pratt.

Has Marvel Finally Found Its 'Doctor Strange'?

25 August 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Remember when I exclusively revealed that Marvel had taken a meeting with Johnny Depp about taking on the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange? Well, while those talks unfortunately went nowhere, it looks like Marvel may be staying in the Depp mindset. According to This Is Infamous, the new frontrunner for the role is 31 year old Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire, American Hustle). Who does he remind you of?

He's certainly a more viable option for the studio. He's younger, he won't command an insane paycheck, and he doesn't have Depp's recent string of misfires working against him. He fits the Marvel mold much better.

This talk of Huston is just the latest in a line of apparent contenders. Mad Men's Jon Hamm was considered to top the list at one point, too. Even Joaquin Phoenix had his turn as "the guy in talks for Doctor Strange." So this could go nowhere, »

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

25 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”

Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

Film Review: ‘Pause’

23 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You can’t blame a gal for wanting to take a break from a scruffy, ambitionless b.f. like “Pause’s” Sami (Baptiste Gillieron) after four years. Audiences may feel the same way after just four minutes, though debuting Swiss director Mathieu Urfer’s intent is to make both Julia (Julia Faure) and us love this lost-puppy-like country musician by the end of what aspires to being a generic American studio romancer. Buoyed slightly by sweet English-language songs the helmer wrote himself, this otherwise flavorless feel-good pic would have been far more charming as a full-blown musical, a la “Once” with real production values.

Building on a background in shorts, Urfer has the directorial skills to make something far more interesting, but is limited by a screenplay (of his own design) that assumes we’ll empathize with a mopey character who, more than anything, needs a good shower and shave. »

The Definitive ‘What the F**K?’ Movies: 40-31

23 August 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As you can probably tell, this list feels more arbitrary than others. That’s not by design, but the unfortunate premise of the list leaves some room for interpretation. As we move forward, we will start seeing the films that, if you asked a lay person to give an example, would probably be a response. In other words, more people have heard of them, which, in turn, often makes them more “definitive.” Don’t worry, though – there are still some underseen and underappreciated gems the rest of the way through.

40. Werckmeister Harmonies (2000)

Directed by: Béla Tarr

It’s certainly not the swiftest film on the list, but you can’t expect much quick plot development from Béla Tarr. Wreckmeister Harmonies takes place in a tiny Hungarian town surrounded by nothing. The winter is incredibly cold, but it never snows. Yet the townspeople are excited in the middle of town as »
