George Clooney Slams Donald Trump in Clever César Awards Acceptance Speech — Watch

25 February 2017 9:04 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

George Clooney has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, and while receiving a Honorary César at the Feb. 24 César Awards he delivered a loud and clear (and often hilarious) takedown of American politics. Aided by the witty “translations” of his friend Jean Dujardin, Clooney was able to satirize in a way that definitely spoke to the room.

One pointed example: Clooney said, “Over the course of my career, I’ve had the great fortune of working with some incredible filmmakers who have protected me and inspired me and taught me what an honor it is to work in film.” Meanwhile, Dujardin’s translation was, “Donald Trump is a danger for the world, and I will do everything to oppose the fear and hate that has settled in.”

Clooney was being honored for his “dazzling talent as an actor, »

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

24 February 2017 2:37 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com 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.

Not So Fatal Attraction! Michael Douglas and Glenn Close Reunite at Her Sunset Boulevard Show

23 February 2017 8:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

No bunnies were harmed in the making of this Fatal Attraction reunion.

Michael Douglas was on hand to support his former costar Glenn Close at a performance of her hit broadway musical Sunset Boulevard on Wednesday night. The two were all smiles as they posed together backstage at The Palace Theatre in New York City.

The duo famously starred in the iconic 1987 blockbuster Fatal Attraction together, where they played two lovers embroiled in a twisted affair.

And while the film premiered nearly three decades ago, Douglas and Close have remained pals over the years.

How Doctor Strange Connects to Ant-Man

15 February 2017 10:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange has finally landed on digital platforms and the Blu-ray is set for release in a couple of weeks. Director Scott Derrickson provided a commentary track for Doctor Strange and those can often reveal fun little tidbits about the movie that weren't previously known. In this case, it was revealed that Doctor Strange and Ant-Man share a connection.

During the commentary track for Doctor Strange, as reported by Comic Book Resources, Scott Derrickson confirmed that, during the psychedelic sequence that occurred when The Ancient One opened up Stephen Strange's mind, the Quantum Realm does appear, which was first seen in Ant-Man. Here is what Scott Derrickson had to say about it.

"This image here is obviously a nod to Ant-Man and the Quantum Realm, acknowledging that as one of the mysterious realms of existence."

It was long suggested by Marvel Cinematic Universe fans that we did get a glimpse »

Here’s Why Arnold’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Bombed – and Won’t ‘Be Back’

14 February 2017 2:11 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first run as host of the “New Celebrity Apprentice” is likely to be his last — and whoever famously said “the show must go on” almost certainly wasn’t talking about this one. The post-Donald Trump era of NBC’s job interview competition was pretty much a dog from Day 1 in terms of Nielsen numbers versus expectations. By Day 8 — a.k.a. Week 2 — it was a dog with fleas, to steal a phrase from Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) in “Wall Street.” The revived version’s TV ratings would continue to get worse from there, a trend that lasted all the. »

"I am also fairly capable, strong, and kick-ass, which is wonderful to play, but the most fun to play is just how messed up she was from being raised by two superheroes. 

"And the clear message sent by name is that I'm not a big fan of my father and so I took my mother's name. »

Lionsgate have released the first poster and trailer for the upcoming action thriller Unlocked, which comes from director Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough, Gorillas in the Mist) and stars Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom, Toni Collette, John Malkovich, and Michael Douglas.

Once one of the CIA’s top interrogators, Alice Racine’s (Rapace) career was sidelined when she failed “to unlock” a prisoner in time to save the lives of dozens of innocent people from a terrorist attack in Paris. Now leading a quiet life in London as a caseworker, Alice is unexpectedly called back into action when the CIA apprehends a suspect believed to have direct knowledge of another imminent attack.

Lionsgate will released Unlocked on May 5th.

Michael Douglas confirms his return for Ant-Man and The Wasp

10 February 2017 4:30 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Although it's not exactly a big surprise that Michael Douglas will be returning for Ant-man And The Wasp, it was never actually a sure thing that the actor would return. While Marvel's contracts with talent usually span multiple movies, Douglas had only signed on for just the one. Thankfully, Dr. Hank Pym will be back for the Ant-man sequel as Michael Douglas confirmed... Read More »

Michael Douglas confirms Hank Pym return for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp

10 February 2017 3:52 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Unlike the majority of stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Michael Douglas only signed a single film contract for his role as Hank Pym in 2015’s Ant-Man, but now we have confirmation from the man himself that he will be returning for the 2018 sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp., with Douglas posting the following to Facebook:

Douglas first revealed that he was in talks with Marvel way back in September 2015, so negotiations have either been very protracted, or Marvel had put them on the back burner while they juggle their multitude of Phase Three projects.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is set to begin shooting in July and will also see the return of Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne) and Michael Pena (Luis). It is set for release on July 6th 2018. »

Michael Douglas Confirmed For Ant-Man And The Wasp

10 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

An actor doesn’t merely sign up for one Marvel movie. They sign on for two, three, four or 13 films. Once you sign that contract, you’re usually involved for life — unless, of course, you badmouth them. Then you’re dead. But Michael Douglas isn’t one to speak ill of Marvel. The Academy Award-winner made a noteworthy supporting turn in 2015’s Ant-Man, and that’s not the last time we’ll see him in this cinematic universe, as he’ll reprise his role as Hank Pym in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

This new casting report is notable since it was unclear whether Douglas would return or not. You see, Douglas is the rare actor to sign a single-picture Marvel contract. One with his level of notoriety, experience and clout has those privileges, it seems. Nevertheless, Peyton Reed treated him well, and he’s ready to work with him again »

Michael Douglas Will Return as Hank Pym in Ant-Man 2

10 February 2017 1:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the most important elements of success are not always related to box office dollars. In the case of something like Ant-Man, it proved that risks can be taken and that those risks can pay off. Not only was Ant-Man a pretty silly concept to try and get mainstream audiences on board with, but the decision to focus on Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as opposed to Hank Pym, was also somewhat risky for die hard fans. Ultimately, it worked out pretty well. Even though the first Ant-Man focused on Scott Lang, Michael Douglas did appear in the movie as Hank Pym and the good news is, he is going to be back for the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Pre-production will be getting underway on Ant-Man 2 shortly and we will likely be getting some more details on the movie here and there as things ramp up. »

Ant-man And The Wasp Set To Begin Shooting In July As Michael Douglas Confirms His Return As Hank Pym

10 February 2017 1:26 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Michael Douglas has now officially confirmed that he's set to reprise the role of Hank Pym in Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp. Though we all pretty much assumed he'd be back anyway, it was far from a forgone conclusion as Douglas actually only signed on for one movie originally. As Scott Lang's mentor, Pym was one of the many highlights of the first movie, so this is terrific news. The Academy Award-winning actor will rejoin Paul Rudd as the diminutive superhero of the title, and Evangeline Lilly, who will have an expanded role as Hope Van Dyne. Douglas also revealed that Peyton Reed is scheduled to begin filming the sequel this July. Ant-Man and The Wasp will hit theaters on July 6, 2018. »

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom star in trailer for Unlocked

10 February 2017 7:58 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom enter the world of high octane violence movies with the brand new trailer for Unlocked, an action thriller centred on Rapace, terrorists and Bloom, who, from what we can gather, just tags along for the ride.

Related: Noomi Rapace Interview on The Drop

The trailer for Unlocked, has no thrills, airs or graces and quite frankly looks like a run of the mill action film with a badass female having to save the day all the whilst fighting off highly trained men in an effort to get the terrorist back to London? We’ve all seen Rapace in full blown action, Orlando Bloom – in a role that isn’t at all clear – just seems to have wanted to associate his name with an action film, maybe to get it back on track? Who knows but the proof will be in the pudding as they say. »
