George Clooney Pays Touching Tribute to Pregnant Wife Amal While Bringing Down the House at French Awards: ‘Love Trumps Hate’

15 hours ago | | See recent news »

While he’s not nominated for an Oscar this year, George Clooney did take home the French equivalent of the Academy’s golden statue at the César ceremony.

Touted beforehand as “the most charismatic actor of his generation,” the Ocean’s Eleven star and his wife Amal, pregnant with their twins, brought Hollywood glamour to Paris at the Salle Pleyel on Friday. Dressed in his signature black Armani tuxedo and bow tie, Clooney looked dashing next to his wife, who showed off her baby bump in a fitted white gown tapered with an ombré of ostrich feathers.

Johnny Depp Racked Up $6 Million in IRS Penalties and Interest, Court Docs Say

23 February 2017 2:10 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp‘s former managers put him a hole with the IRS so deep that it cost him more than $6 million in penalties and interest, according to court documents filed last week. According to the documents, Depp’s former managers were responsible for “egregious deficiencies in making Mr. Depp’s tax payments,” costing the actor a bundle. In the documents, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Feb. 15, tax attorney Miriam L. Fisher — whose firm was retained by Depp to help sort out delinquencies in his 2014 tax bill — says that, while dealing with Depp’s. »

‘Yoga Hosers’ VOD Review

23 February 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Lily-Rose Depp, Harley Quinn Smith, Johnny Depp. Justin Long, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Ralph Garman, Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Haley Joel Osment, Vanessa Paradis, Tyler Posey, Génesis Rodríguez, Jennifer Schwalbach, Sasheer Zamata | Written and Directed by Kevin Smith

So, Kevin Smith… A man whose work I’ve really enjoyed over the years (Clerks 2 and Dogma being my personal highlights, though I used to live for Mallrats), took a, let’s say, interesting path with his recent directorial efforts Red State and Tusk. Exploring the horror genre rather than the comedy/drama he became known for, Smith looks to have a new-found passion for filmmaking, seemingly no longer going through the motions with his View Askewniverse – though he has just announced another Jay and Silent Bob flick!

Instead Smith announced the development of a “True North” trilogy: strange genre tales set in Canada, a country that – like Smith – I have an affinity for. »

Why Denzel Washington Could Make History with a Surprise Third Oscar Win

23 February 2017 9:12 AM, PST | | See recent news »

With a best actor nomination for his tour-de-force performance in Fences, Denzel Washington is on the verge of making history — again. 

Should he win, Washington would have more Oscars under his belt than any other African-American actor. He is already the most nominated, having landed his seventh nod this year for Fences, and is also the only African-American to win multiple acting Oscars.

But with Casey Affleck’s gut-wrenching turn in Manchester By the Sea wracking up best actor nominations and wins throughout awards season, this year’s Oscars will see Washington playing an unfamiliar role: the underdog.

'Finding Neverland': Theater Review

22 February 2017 4:02 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

When Finding Neverland opened on Broadway in 2015 after a famously troubled incubation and took a critical hammering, the initial box-office receipts seemed to reflect a prevailing notion about the show: How could a musical about the birth of Peter Pan, with the likable stars from Glee and Frasier, be anything other than charming? But while this adaptation of the 2004 Johnny Depp film does have adorable children, a shaggy dog, pixie dust and a few truly stirring moments, it's also packed with dark themes, bland songs and bleak choreography, none of which are particularly kid-friendly.

Johnny Depp Says Ex-Managers Suing Him Is a Joke, IRS Docs Prove It

22 February 2017 2:58 PM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Johnny Depp's ex-managers have a collective brass pair for suing him ... according to Johnny who says he has massive tax receipts to prove how much they screwed him. Depp and his old management firm, Tmg, are locked in a huge legal battle -- first, Johnny said they defrauded him out of $25 million and then Tmg filed a countersuit against him.

Angelina Jolie developing Catherine The Great, Bride Of Frankenstein still possible

22 February 2017 11:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Feb 23, 2017

Angelina Jolie is developing two films at Universal, including a Catherine The Great movie. Bride Of Frankenstein could still happen too.

Angelina Jolie arguably remains one of the most bankable movie stars in Hollywood. Granted, the last time she appeared in a live-action film was for 2015’s underperformer, By the Sea. But prior to that misfire, the combination of her marquee name and Disney nostalgia propelled Maleficent to a $759 million gross during the summer of 2014. And along with a purported Maleficent 2, many producers have sought the star to reprise roles in potential blockbusters like a now dormant Wanted 2 and the abandoned Salt 2.

However, personal life aside, she has kept a low profile in Hollywood, electing instead to direct a movie set and produced in Cambodia (Netflix has since purchased the international rights). Apparently things are changing at Universal Pictures, however, since THR is reporting she has »

Movie Review – A Cure for Wellness (2017)

22 February 2017 10:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A Cure for Wellness, 2017.

Directed by Gore Verbinski.

Starring Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth, Jason Isaacs, Adrian Schiller, Celia Imrie, and Susanne Wuest.


An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa’s treatments are not what they seem.

If only all vanity projects were as masturbatory and hysterically overwrought as Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness. It’s a 150-minute homage to Dario Argento, a critique of modern capitalism, a grotesque flamboyant fairy tale and in the current climate of turgid, machine made, a copy of a copy of a copy horror cinema, it’s a refreshing excursion to somewhere new. It’s a frantic exercise in absolute excess.

It’s hard to imagine how the film was bankrolled following Verbinski’s attempt at »

Cinema’s Greatest Manhunt Movies

22 February 2017 4:53 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Manhunt movies have taken a shift over the years. Gone are the days of prohibition gangster heroism, liberating the common folk from the great depression with free flowing liquor. Times have changed and as Patriots Day shows us, heroes come in many forms and are often right under our noses.

Patriots Day exposes the stories of the everyday heroes involved in the manhunt for the Tsarnaev brothers following the devastating Boston Marathon attack in 2013. To celebrate the release of Peter Berg’s latest ‘based on true events’ film we’ve pulled together a list of the best manhunt movies currently at large.

The exhausting hunt for Osama bin Laden was something the world was certainly aware of, but the cloak and dagger operation kept things under wraps until the evening of 1st May 2011 when in a seemingly sudden move, at least to the general population, bin Laden »

21 February 2017 4:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures has brought on Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) to rewrite the script for the studio's Van Helsing reboot. It is part of Universal Studios' monster universe, which will feature a bunch of classic creatures in modern day.

Catherine Pearson Feb 22, 2017

Documentary fans are well served by these 11 great documentary series and features, currently available on Netflix UK...

In recent years, even months, Netflix has upped its game. No longer just a site to instantly stream an old title you might have once picked up in Blockbuster, it's become a hub of quality new and original film and television and this is by no means limited to its vast selection of fiction.

With the scope of possibility in visual effects and the boundlessness of imagination there are very few places we cannot explore in fiction nowadays… that is unless we explore stories that are stranger than fiction. There is a tangible thirst for the real; the overwhelming response to recent Netflix documentary Making A Murderer in the news and social media, as just one example, exposes the desire for and »
