Johnny Depp's Incredible $26 Million French Village Estate Is For Sale—You Have to Take A Tour!

2 July 2015 3:45 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It doesn't take a village for Johnny Depp anymore. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor is parting ways with his enormous French estate for a not-too-shabby $26 million. Depp purchased the 37-acre property back in 2001, and has since spared no expense (and no less than $10 million) renovating the exquisite abode into, well, an exquisite village. What used to be the Provencal village in the South of France is now just part of Depp's expansive property. Certain stone houses on the compound are more than 200 years old, but that's not the most impressive feature this property boasts. No, that would probably be the Jack sparrow-inspired wine cellar cave, one of the several guest cottages (including one that used »

Oscars: Biopics, Diversity Dearth Shape Midyear Race

2 July 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2015 hits the halfway mark, it’s encouraging that so many upcoming films look promising — because so far, the Oscar possibilities are meager, to say the least.

Once again, fact-based dramas will dominate awards buzz. There are at least 14 with scheduled dates, and another three possibilities for this year. Six of these earn the highest possible praise: People from rival studios like them.

That roster includes “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp as Boston mob kingpin Whitey Bulger; “Concussion,” about the NFL’s efforts to deny the repercussions of players’ repeated concussions; “Spotlight,” with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered child abuse in the Catholic Church; “Trumbo,” about Dalton Trumbo and the House Un-American Activities Committee; “Truth,” the Dan Rather-George W. Bush scandal pic; and “The Walk,” about high-wire artist Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Amber Heard Opens Up About Her Sexuality: ''I Don't Give a F--k'' What People Think

1 July 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Amber Heard wants her talent, not her sexuality, to define her career. And as one of the few females on the impressive list of stars in Magic Mike Xxl, the 29-year-old shared with The Times (via U.K.'s Independent) why her part in the highly anticipated sequel initially grabbed her attention.

Amber Heard Doesn't Want to Be Defined By Her Bisexuality

30 June 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Amber Heard is opening up about her sexuality. While the "Magic Mike Xxl" star has talked publicly about being bisexual, she's now revealing why she decided to come out at a GLAAD event back in 2010. "I don’t want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don’t want to have to be defined by it," she says in a new interview in The Times. "I’m fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular. I don’t give a f---. I fight, but I shouldn’t have to." Heard, who married Johnny Depp earlier this year, says that hiding the truth can be a negative thing. "I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something you’re inadvertently admitting it’s wrong," she declares. "I hate the idea of a label just as much as anyone else, »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: First 'Pirates of the Caribbean' One of Most Enjoyable Summer Blockbusters of Early 21st Century

29 June 2015 4:13 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl': Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' review: Mostly an enjoyable romp (Oscar Movie Series) Pirate movies were a Hollywood staple for about three decades, from the mid-'20s (The Sea Hawk, The Black Pirate) to the mid-to-late '50s (Moonfleet, The Buccaneer), when the genre, by then mostly relegated to B films, began to die down. Sporadic resurrections in the '80s and '90s turned out to be critical and commercial bombs (Pirates, Cutthroat Island), something that didn't bode well for the Walt Disney Company's $140 million-budgeted film "adaptation" of one of their theme-park rides. But Neptune's mood has apparently improved with the arrival of the new century. He smiled – grinned would be a more appropriate word – on the Gore Verbinski-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, »

J.C. Chandor in Talks to Direct Paramount Thriller ‘Triple Frontier’

29 June 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After years of development limbo, Paramount’s action thriller “Triple Frontier” may have found new life.

Sources close to the project say “A Most Violent Year” helmer J.C. Chandor is in early talks to direct the pic that once had Kathryn Bigelow attached to helm.

The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.

Mark Boal and Bigelow serve as exec producers, with Charles Roven and Alex Gartner producing for Atlas Media.

The deal is not yet closed but if Chandor boards the project, the aim is for production to commence in January. A star has yet to be set for the film, but insiders say Will Smith has been eyeing the project for some time.

Though sources close to the studio and Smith say the actor is not attached, »

J.C. Chandor Circling Former Kathryn Bigelow Drama Triple Frontier

29 June 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A long-developing project may be undergoing an interesting director shift. After Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the Best Director Oscar for The Hurt Locker, she was understandably in demand for a number of follow-up projects. She and Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal zeroed in on a crime drama called Triple Frontier. Set in a border zone of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil known as “la triple frontera,” the movie would revolve around this haven for organized crime. A number of actors expressed interest in starring, from Johnny Depp to Tom Hanks to Will Smith, but the project was put on the backburner when Zero Dark Thirty gained steam. Our last update on the film came in 2012, when details surfaced that while Smith was interested in starring in the movie, Bigelow was uninterested in casting him. Moreover, Paramount Pictures reportedly balked at the $80 million budget. Bigelow and Boal have »

Bisexual bias? Amber Heard thinks sexuality affects movie roles

29 June 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Bisexual bias? Amber Heard thinks she has to ''fight'' for film roles because of her sexuality. The 29-year-old actress came out as bisexual at an event hosted by Gay & Lesbian Alliance against Defamation in 2010 and - before she met her husband Johnny Depp in 2012 - dated female artist and photographer Tasya van Ree between 2008 to 2011, but has insisted she doesn't want to ''be defined by it''. Amber said: ''I don't want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don't want to have to be defined by it. I'm fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular. I don't give a f**k. I fight, but I shouldn't have to.'' The 'Magic Mike Xxl' star went on to argue that celebrities who are in the closet are ''inadvertently admitting it's wrong'' to be bisexual or homosexual. Speaking to The Times magazine, »

It was all about Hollywood's hottest couples on the red carpet last night!   Two celebrity duos made it date night at the premiere of "Magic Mike Xxl" on Thursday in Hollywood, California -- and packed on the Pda on the carpet.  Joe Manganiello shared a steamy kiss with fiance Sofia Vergara at the event. The two looked ready to walk down the aisle, with the hunky star in a classic dark grey suit and the Colombian beauty in a lacy off-white dress.   Amber Heard went solo for the night but brought the sexy in a low cut dress. Mrs. Johnny Depp slipped into a violet silk charmeuse Monique Lhuillier dress that featured a sultry deep v-neck.

The Worst Movies Of 2015 (So Far…)

25 June 2015 8:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week, us Wgtc critics counted off some of our favorite films of 2015 so far, but all in all, it hasn’t been a terrific first half of the year. Avengers: Age of Ultron arrived as a bloated, messy sequel with far less charm than the first McU phase-capper, talented sci-fi filmmakers like the Wachowskis and Neill Blomkamp delivered some of their worst work to date in Jupiter Ascending and Chappie, Johnny Depp eliminates any residual good-will in Mortdecai, and strong actors like Tom Hardy and Jonah Hill ended up mired in slogfests Child 44 and True Story. It’s been a depressing season for cinephiles punctuated by some occasional pleasant surprises.

But amid all the mediocre-to-bad entries from Hollywood so far this year, there were some titles that triumphed above all else to cement their place on the list of the year’s worst, most atrocious and irredeemable films. »
