China’s box office told only one tale over the past week – the blistering pace of “Fast and Furious 7,” which broke records and left all competing titles standing.
The past seven days saw the film add $186 million to its huge first-day score, bringing the eight-day total to $250 million, according to Chinese data service Ent Group. The film was watched by some 29 million Chinese spectators, who paid an average of $6.3 per ticket for the privilege.
While the cinema owners and fans may have been cheering, the massive score sent shivers around other sections of the industry. Chinese filmmaker Feng Xiaogang, speaking at the Chinese directors awards a week ago, said that it sets the bar ever higher for the locals to compete.
And many in the industry have been wondering if “Furious 7” will at some stage be removed from screens by regulators who judge that it has taken enough »

Married life sure suits Amber Heard! Johnny Depp's wife wore a silky, caramel-colored slip dress Wednesday at Tiffany & Co.'s 2015 Blue Book Collection dinner in New York City. And while the Rum Diaries actress was dripping in diamonds, she didn't appear to be wearing a bra (or underwear, for that matter, unless those suckers were super-seamless)! And while diamonds are a girls' best friend, fellow actresses can be nice to pal around with too. And that's what Amber, 28, did when she posed for a photograph alongside Reese Witherspoon and Olivia Wilde. They, too, were modeling jewels from Tiffany & Co. Earlier in the day, Reese, 39, even got to recreate the dazzling proposal scene »
It had enough admirers to snag several Oscar nominations, including best picture, but I confess I found the 2004 movie Finding Neverland a decorous yawn, starring a somnambulant Johnny Depp opposite Kate Winslet in a role that under-utilized her talents. But the preciousness and mawkish emotional manipulation of the movie seem like the austere work of a Michael Haneke by comparison with this long-aborning stage musical adaptation. Bombastic and exhausting, the show confuses childishness with an affinity for the child inside, at times recalling Wicked in its busily assaultive hyperactivity, but without that show's catchy songs or engaging

Into the Woods is fun, exciting, and catchy. I found myself rooting for the beloved characters as well as shaming the naughty ones throughout the film. Into the Woods is an adaptation of James Lapin and Stephen Sondheim’s award winning Broadway musical of the same name. In film form Into the Woods stars Johnny Depp, […]

Welcome back, dance fans! The typically awkward "Dancing with the Stars" returns with extra special doses of awkward this week, as everyone's nervously excited about Disney Week. They're dancing with cartoon characters and going totally overboard with magical make-up and impressions, but it's all lots of fun. Besides Tom's Eeyore, I especially love Riker's Captain Jack Sparrow. He's become my favorite competitor this season anyway.
I'm glad the pandering and shameless self-promotion isn't quite as heavy-handed as last season, but there's still plenty of it. But at least we know the music is really good, as the couples dance to some of our favorite songs. Many of the couples are having a rough night though, and at this mid-point in the competition (can you believe already), the top competitors are starting to separate from the pack.
Let's get into my top dances:

Olivia Munn has been cast in the role of Psylocke in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'. The 34-year-old actress, who recently starred alongside Johnny Depp in the action comedy film 'Mortdecai', has confirmed that she will appear as Psylocke/Betsy Braddock in the Bryan Singer-directed movie, which already boasts an impressive cast that includes Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac and James McAvoy. Brian Singer wrote on Instagram: ''Excited to welcome @oliviamunn as Betsy Braddock! #Psylocke #XmenApocalypse #Xmen.'' Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence recently revealed 'X-Men: Apocalypse' will be her last film in the franchise. The 24-year-old actress, who's starred as Raven/Mystique in the Marvel films, explained that the eagerly-awaited new movie will mark the final time she appears in the role. Speaking at the premiere of her latest film 'Serena', Jennifer was asked about the upcoming 'X-Men' movie, to which she replied: ''It is my last one, »
One thing I already love about the new Terminator movie is that its central idea is what I always believed (a) Terminator 2 should have been. Wasn’t the logical next step for both Skynet and John Connor to send advanced soldiers back to the same time and try again? But whatever, this franchise makes my head hurt if I think too much about the logic and paradoxes and whatnot. Terminator Genisys is really going to have our heads spinning if we attempt to analyze the timelines and reason of the new movie, which is a sequel, prequel, sidequel, remake, reboot, retcon and more all rolled into one. It literally takes place on top of the first movie while also throwing in elements of T2. It’s kind of a little too clever. At least the new trailer shows us something new, although I do feel a little spoiled by the reveal that John Connor (Jason Clarke) is »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?
We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.
Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.

In all my years attending the festival, the world premieres that take place in the mythic, film history-rich lieus such as the Lumiere (Main Comp), the Debussy (Un Certain Regard) and oft-renamed setting where they house Directors’ Fortnight (JWMariott) are met with a standard, ten minute standing ovation when the credits role. With the filmmaker team present, it would simply be bad form to pass vocal judgement — the hissing and booing we often hear about are more often than not during the early morning press screenings.
Landing a coveted spot in the Un Certain Regard section, a section that protects “high art” or the “experimental” type, Lost River was swarmed with immense curiosity. Could working with the likes of a Derek Cianfrance or Nicolas Winding Refn pass on some filmmaker skill genes? My first thought at the fiery credit roll was: is this is how actor-turned-first-time-director Johnny Depp’s The »

In the midst of our excitement for this week’s release of Alex Garland’s “Ex Machina” (which is fantastic and reviewed here), it hit us: 2015 is teeming with artificial intelligence movies. The Singularity is not far off and this swell has practically come out of nowhere, with last year’s awesome Disney hit “Big Hero 6,” the disastrous Johnny Depp vehicle "Transcendence," and 2013’s British indie-sleeper “The Machine” amounting to most of what the subgenre has had to offer in the decade so far (though not all, as we’ll mention). As a way to compensate for this human error, 2015 is going to be much more artificially and intelligently inclined, with the theme replete in a variety of mainstream and indie sci-fi films. We’ve already seen “Chappie” (or, we’ve seen it so that you don’t have to, though some of us found it unnecessarily humiliated by »

Reboots, videogame adaptations, and a few long awaited sequels are all due for release next year
Now that Fast & Furious 7 has formally opened summer blockbuster season 2015 up, it's time for us to take our traditional look at the big movies gracing multiplexes this time next year.
2016 is set to be a pivotal summer, too. There are big movies in both the DC and Marvel cinematic universes. Warner Bros is looking to launch the first of six King Arthur movies, whilst Universal may get cracking with its classic monster cinematic universe. And - yep - we may even get the world's first great film based on a videogame.
Summer blockbuster season 2016 stretches from March through to August, and here's what treats are lined up. Please note, we've gone with Us release dates, for the purposes of this feature, as that's where most of the films will debut first.

Many of your favorite stars rarely begin their careers by appearing in big, well-known movies. In fact, you'd be surprised to learn how many actually cut their acting teeth in horror movies before transitioning to other forms of entertainment (we're looking at you Jennifer Aniston and Johnny Depp). Because it's always fun watching those old-school movie scenes capturing stars before they became, well, stars -- and because Movie Munchies put together this fun video featuring 10 of them -- here's what it looked like back when folks like Leonardo DiCaprio, Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lawrence, Tom Hanks, Ben Stiller, Jennifer Aniston, Chris Pratt and more landed their big break.

For Athelstan, we have something interesting to start season 2 – we have a four year time jump at the end of episode 1. So these four years allow everybody to see the characters change a lot, and Athelstan is certainly a character who changes quite a lot at the start of season 2. He was fifteen in season 1, and seeing how much he’s gone through already, and knowing what kind of position he’s in, at the start of season 2 he kind of feels betrayed by Ragnar Lothbrok, »
