This Oscar nominee for Best Picture is set in 1965, but it still feels timely in 2015. "Selma" chronicles the Selma to Montgomery civil rights march led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo), resulting in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965. "Selma" had its digital release on April 21, but it's available on DVD/Blu-ray, Netflix (via DVD/Blu-ray), and Redbox on May 5. The Blu-ray includes deleted and extended scenes, behind-the-scenes documentaries, newsreels, and feature commentary from director Ava DuVernay and Oyelowo.

The role of a good producer is often undervalued. We tend to hear Harvey Weinstein-esque horror stories about executives wielding their power and crushing the creative integrity of a film. But what we hear less of are the common tales of a producer collaborating with a filmmaker, making insightful notes, and giving them the resources they need to reach their full potential. According to Deadline, the box office bomb "Child 44" could've used that kind of guiding hand. Read More: Review: 'Child 44' Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman And Joel Kinnaman One of the year's biggest flops, the dour drama starring Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, and Jason Clarke earned awful reviews and woeful box-office returns, taking in just $1.1 million domestically (by comparison, even Johnny Depp's "Mortdecai" managed to tally $7.6 million). And this is even more disheartening given the talent involved (including a script by. »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

Listing the Coen Brothers, Spike Jonze, and Paul Thomas Anderson as her Bucket List of directors with whom to work, Juno Temple’s film choices are best described as eclectic. The daughter of rock and roll filmmaker Julien Temple, Juno had a creative, rebellious spirit instilled in her at an early age, and her career has reflected that greatly.
Starring opposite Matthew McConaughey in Killer Joe and Daniel Radcliffe in Horns, she’s never been one to back away from darker roles. On the other hand, she’s also completely willing to play dress-up every once and a while. You may remember her as a fairy in Maleficent or as Queen Anne, dripping in pearls and lace, in Paul W. S. Anderson’s The Three Musketeers.

One of my most anticipated films of this year is writer/director Scott Cooper‘s (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace) upcoming drama Black Mass. The film stars Johnny Depp as notorious crime boss Whitey Bulger, who simultaneously worked as an FBI informant and committed horrible crimes throughout the Boston area for decades. As you can see in the awesome looking trailer, Depp looks fantastic in the role and with a supporting cast made up of Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple, and Jesse Plemons, I think we’re in for something special when Black Mass hits theaters September 18th. Last week at CinemaCon I got a few minutes with Scott Cooper before seeing the trailer during the presentation. He talked about the time frame of the movie, how the project came together, his first cut, if Black Mass could premiere at the Toronto Film Festival or Telluride, »

"Me and my brother, we're gonna rule London." Hot on the heels of the intense trailer for the crime drama Black Mass starring Johnny Depp, it looks like Tom Hardy has a great crime thriller of his own on the way too. Legend sees the star of Inception and Mad Max: Fury Road pulling double duty as twin brothers Reggie and Ron Kray, two of London's most notorious gangsters from the 1960s. It's only a teaser trailer, so it mostly just sets the stage for the story, but there's a good indication that this could be a fantastic crime thriller with a tour de force from Hardy on display. Keep an eye out for Taron Egerton in there too. Watch! Here's the first UK teaser trailer for Brian Helgeland's Legend from Studio Canal UK: Legend is written and directed by Brian Helgeland (A Knight's Tale, Payback, 42). Tom Hardy stars »

As is the case with all movies made by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, there are a ton of jokes and characters in 21 Jump Street that would seemingly lead you into a completey different movie if you just followed them for a little bit. You could make an entire movie about the history of, say, Ice Cube's hardass police captain, or the drug dealing motorcycle gang that gets infiltrated by Johnny Depp. Or, better yet, you could tell a whole side story involve the other two undercover cops already working out of the 21 Jump Street precinct, Fugazy and Jr. Jr. If you don't remember them, Fugazy and Jr. Jr. were the names of the two young female cops played by Dakota Johnson and Rye Rye who are busting criminals left and right while Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill's characters...

“Fast & Furious 7” grossed $72.7 million in its second week at the Chinese box office, a strong number that lifted its 15 day total to $324 million after 15 days of release, according to data from Ent Group.
The score made “Furious 7” the highest grossing film of all time in China, overtaking the record held by “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which had earned $319 million. (Universal’s estimates announced a $323 million figure.)
The figure was a steep drop from the $188 million in its previous full week (Monday to Sunday). But it still left “Furious 7” as the top film of the week, and earning more than twice as much as second placed title the new release romantic drama “The Left Ear” which took $31.9 million in three days.
In third place was Fan Bingbing-starring romance “Ever Since We Love,” which held on well in its second week. It took $10.2 million, for a 10 day total of $21.9 million. »

Kevin Polowy profiles the upcoming gangster film "Black Mass," saying this is finally "the Johnny Depp movie we've been waiting for." A new trailer shows Depp as real-life ruthless mobster Whitey Bulger, one of the most infamous people ever in American organized crime. Could this be Depp's ticket to a first Oscar win? Directed by Scott Cooper (who helped Jeff Bridges win an Academy Award for "Crazy Heart"), the film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, and Dakota Johnson. It opens nationally September 18 and is a likely candidate to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival the week before. Yahoo Movies -Break- With no big film wanting to open a week before "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the box office leader is once again "Furious 7" with another $18.26 million. Holdover "Paul Blart - Mall Cop 2" is in second place with $15.5 million. Newcomer &quo »
After watching Johnny Depp as modern day mobster Whitey Bulger in the Black Mass new trailer, all is forgiven for Depp once again donning the Captain Sparrow costume for another Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The unrecognizable Depp is alarmingly frightening as the infamous violent criminal in this first look at the crime drama. Black Mass boast an A-list cast such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Corey Stoll, Peter Sarsgaard and David Harbour.

Amber Heard is gorgeous. That is not new information. But Johnny Depp's leading lady doesn't want her looks to overshadow her talent, and unfortunately, that's been the case during most of her career. While promoting her upcoming film When I Live My Life Over Again at the Tribeca Film Festival, the 29-year-old explained during an interview with Indie Wire that she's especially fond of her role in the movie for the simple fact that she's not over-sexualized, like some of her previous roles. "I know, it's been what I've fought for since the first day on the scene. Superficial is far less interesting primarily because it's the result of things that are out of my control, so »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »
