9 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name.

Oscar mystery: Will Eddie Redmayne be first since Tom Hanks to win two in a row?

28 August 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Eddie Redmayne has the chance to make Oscar history with his role in "The Danish Girl." He could become the first actor in more than two decades to win back-to-back Oscars. The last to accomplish that feat was Tom Hanks in 1993 ("Philadelphia") and 1994 ("Forrest Gump"). And he's on a list with only four other actors in Oscar history who have ever pulled it off: Spencer Tracy, Luise Rainer, Katharine Hepburn and Jason Robards. Will Redmayne join that elite company? -Break- As of this writing, he ranks a close second in our Best Actor predictions with 4/1 odds, behind Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Revenant"). Do you think Redmayne will pull ahead? Our forum posters are discussing his chances in our forums. Read some of their comments below, and join them now to let us know what you think.

Chris Messina to Co-Star With Ben Affleck in ‘Live By Night’

28 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chris Messina is in negotiations to co-star opposite Ben Affleck in Warner Bros.’ crime drama “Live By Night.”

Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are also in negotiations to star, with Affleck also toplining and producing along with Jennifer Todd through their Pearl Street banner, as well as Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran through their Appian Way banner.

Based on the Dennis Lehane novel, the Prohibition-set drama examines the world of organized crime. Messina will play Affleck’s best friend and partner in crime in the film.

Like Fanning, Miller and Saldana, Messina has been eyed to star for some time, but delays in production due to Affleck’s commitments to “Gone Girl” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” forced the studio to hold off on handing out other offers. Sources say that as cameras are expected to start rolling in November, more offers are expected to be handed out. »

If Leonardo DiCaprio wins Oscar, who will internet obsess over next: Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper ...?

28 August 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has legions of fans who have long been clamoring for him to win an Oscar. He's still looking for his first victory, but as user Amg points out in our movie forums, "His role in 'The Revenant' could see him finally take home the gold statuette." Indeed, our current Oscar odds have him in first place, just ahead of last year's champ Eddie Redmayne ("The Danish Girl"). As Amg notes, should DiCaprio win after four losses, "The internet would literally break (and not like that molecular hairline fracture [Kim Kardashian] tried to cause). So if he did win, who would the internet be fan-boying over to seal the deal next? Bradley Cooper? Ryan Gosling? Emma Stone? Johnny Depp?" -Break- Our forum posters, many of whom are Hollywood insiders, chimed in with their thoughts. Read some of their comments below, then click here to join the fierce debate.

How Star Wars: The Force Awakens Plans To Dominate The Marketplace In December

26 August 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A while ago, Disney CEO Bob Iger made his doubts regarding the predicted success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens known, but a recent move by the Mouse House suggests that the film will completely dominate the landscape during its opening month. This December, the seventh installment of the beloved franchise has dibs on all IMAX theaters in the U.S. That means all other films, including The Revenant with Leonardo DiCaprio and In the Heart of the Sea with Chris Hemsworth, won.t be screening in IMAX for four weeks starting on December 18. Just Star Wars.  This deal also includes most IMAX formats overseas. The folks at IMAX previously made a similar pact with the Hobbit movies. However, as The Hollywood Reporter notes, this was made four years ago, and IMAX hadn.t made the move since. IMAX Entertainment CEO Greg Foster is now confident that Star Wars »

Experts' early Oscar predictions: 'Joy,' 'The Revenant,' Leo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett ...'

25 August 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

After three previous losses in the Oscars' Best Picture race ("Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle," "The Fighter"), director David O. Russell is now out front to win for "Joy," according to the collective predictions of 14 experts at Gold Derby. See each expert's individual rankings here. "Joy" has a narrow lead (7 to 1 odds) over "The Revenant" by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (15/2), who prevailed six months ago with victories for Best Picture and Director for "Birdman." However, Inarritu has a slight edge (9/2) over Russell (5/1) to repeat as Best Director and "The Revenant" star, still-Oscarless Leonardo DiCaprio, leads the Best Actor battle (10/3). DiCaprio has a slight edge over recent champ Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl" (4/1).  Strongly ahead to win Best Actress is two-time past Oscar winner Cate Blanchett ("Carol") with 13/5 odds over »

Captain America: Civil War's Winter Soldier and Falcon have become memes already

25 August 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Captain America: Civil War is still almost a year away from release, but much to our delight a picture has appeared online.

And when the picture of Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie's characters Winter Soldier and Falcon running turned up, the internet did what it does best and came up with some incredible memes.

Tumblr user Meficrow in particular created some brilliant ones that will help tide everyone over until the film trailer drops.

Trying - and failing - to catch up with Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump, flanking Captain Jack Sparrow as he flees for his life and running through the field in The Sound of Music are just some of the funniest ones.

However, the one that trumps them all is a fandom mashup which sees the pair running alongside the likes of Sherlock, Leonardo DiCaprio and Dylan O'Brien as Thomas from The Maze Runner, which comes from sherlockspeare. »

17 actors impersonating other actors: Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack Nicholson impression is crazy good

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).

1. Kevin Spacey

Actors impersonated: Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken

To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.

Ps - there are Kevin Spacey impressions, then there are Kevin Spacey impressions in front of the people he's impersonating. Ladies and gentlemen, Al Pacino and "Al Pacino".

2. Bradley Cooper

Actors impersonated: Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Christian Bale

Everyone can do a Christopher Walken - even if it's a terrible Christopher Walken »
