Jodie Foster Joins AA —for Her New Love

16 April 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | newser.com | See recent newser news »

Jodie Foster is reportedly dating Ellen DeGeneres' ex, photographer Alexandra Hedison—and sources say the relationship is getting so serious that Foster has given up alcohol, because Hedison is a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for more than 10 years. Foster "joined Alcoholics Anonymous and has embraced a 12-step program," one source tells Star , according to Radar . "Now they are both sober ... Alex has no reservations about spending their lives together." But she wants Foster to be sober for at least a year before they get married, the source adds. Hedison, 44, who dated DeGeneres from 2001 to 2004, »

David Fincher: Gone Girl director's career in movie trailers

14 April 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first trailer for David Fincher's hotly-anticipated thriller Gone Girl debuted today, and it's yet another fantastic promo from a director who's served up some of the best mainstream Hollywood fare over the last two decades.

Many movies rely on marketing agencies to cut their trailer material, but in recent years Fincher has operated a little differently, getting involved himself from the get-go to help shape how his movies are sold. It shows; first looks for Fincher releases are often mini-movies in themselves, oblique and creative teasers designed to hook you in before a more accessible promo is released.

Digital Spy goes film-by-film with Fincher's trailer back catalogue to highlight 8 of his best promos below. We've excluded Alien 3 on the grounds that Fincher lost final cut to the studio and had little to do with the film by the time it was released.

Mark Wahlberg Drops F-Bombs And Thanks For MTV Movie Awards Generation Award

14 April 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

"I know what this really means.this is the 'Too F--king Old to Come Back' award." This was the less-than-gracious but nonetheless awesome way that Mark Wahlberg began his acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards last night. You can watch his full speech above (via MTV), where he laments his age, shushes his Entourage crew, and takes a moment to remember God among lots of cursing. It was just about as loopy as Jodie Foster's acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, so.thanks? The award came as no surprise to Wahlberg as MTV had publically announced the honor last month. From there, Wahlberg teamed up with MTV correspondent Josh Horowitz for a promo spot that played to the former's strengths, like sentimentality and smoldering. Introducing Wahlberg and his Generation Award were Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrera from the Wahlberg-produced hit show Entourage. After a kiss to »

Which of Today's Child Actors Do You See Having a Long Career?

9 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Some remarkable child performers have very brief moments in the spotlight -- Carrie Henn in Aliens is a great example. Others fizzle around the time they reach adulthood, often through unfortunate circumstances like drug addiction. Then there are people like Ron Howard, Jodie Foster, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, Neil Patrick Harris, Sidney Lumet, Jackie Cooper, Elizabeth Taylor ... The list can go on and on and on (especially if we're counting those who switched roles in Hollywood like Howard and Lumet). We should also include the ones who had missteps during the transition to adulthood but made comebacks, like Drew Barrymore and Jason Bateman.  But nobody today, certainly not the younger generation of talents like Natalie Portman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, can be...

Star Wars: 10 things you never knew about the galaxy far, far away

8 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Filming is about to commence on Star Wars: Episode VII, Jj Abrams's hotly-anticipated sequel that picks up the story 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

With almost 40 years of history - encompassing films, TV, comic books, video games and novels - there's a wealth of interesting facts and information about the vast universe hatched by George Lucas.

Here are ten fast facts we've discovered from a galaxy far, far away…

1. Inspired by the swashbuckling Flash Gordon adventures that began in the '30s, a young George Lucas initially wanted to bring that serial to the big screen, but found the rights to the character difficult to untangle. From there he began to fashion his own space epic - a project that would eventually become the Star Wars we know and love.

However, things could have been a lot different as Lucas's first draft script was »

Look out for Danny Glover as Mel reteams with Lethal Weapon director Richard Donner for an enjoyable slice of Western hokum. »

Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, & Holly Hunter Join the Cast of Batman vs. Superman

3 April 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With filming for Zack Snyder's follow-up to Man of Steel set to being very soon, casting for the movie has obviously been stepped up.  Just now, Warner Bros. issued a press release announcing that three new actors have been cast in the movie for various roles.  Come inside to check out all the details!  

If you're hoping for information on who they'll be playing...you may be a little disappointed.  All the press release really says is that they were cast for characters created specifically for the film.  Meaning they don't already have a comic book counterpart.  Either way, it's really nice to hear some sort of official information on this film, considering how quiet things have been lately on the upcoming DC Superhero flick:

Streep Finally Listens, Gets Real Director.

26 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We've been harping on Meryl Streep's extraordinary lack of interest in working with A list directors who might actually, you know, direct her for a decade. She's finally working with one. She's now attached to Ricky and the Flash and, juvenile sounding title aside, it sounds like a potential winner.

She'll play a rock star trying to reconnect with her estranged children when her career peters out. The script is by clever Diablo Cody and in the director's chair, none other than Oscar winner Jonathan Demme. He's quite gifted with actresses having previously directed arguably career best work from actresses as diverse as Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married), Melanie Griffith (Something Wild), and Jodie Foster (Silence of the Lambs). He also guided Michelle Pfeiffer, once his favorite actress, in her best romantic comedy outing (Married to the Mob). More »

Martha Plimpton on Other Desert Cities: 'Oh jeez, now I'm nervous'

24 March 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The tomboyish daughter of movie stars, Martha Plimpton never got the pretty-girl parts. But by 15, she was in The Goonies and dating River Phoenix. The actor talks to Ryan Gilbey about her looks, stage fright – and growing up with the cast of Hair

Martha Plimpton steps out into the street for an early-evening smoke and is immediately pounced upon by two middle-aged men in windcheaters. "Ooh," says the stage-door manager at the Old Vic, sucking his teeth. "She walked straight into that one." We watch the autograph-hunters retreat with their signed glossies while Plimpton becomes absorbed in her mobile phone.

"It comes with the territory," she says, after climbing the stairs back to the rehearsal room. Her voice has a Marge Simpson huskiness to it, with a New Yorker's seen-it-all fatigue. Plimpton has not, all things considered, had to put up with too much intrusion, though, apart from the abusive »

21 March 2014 6:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Following the footsteps of Bertrand Tavernier, British multi-hyphenate Alan Parker (“Midnight Express,”"Fame”) will be the guest of honor at Brussels Film Festival.

Mel Gibson: Journalist Asks Hollywood To Remove Him From Blacklist

18 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Entertainment journalist Allison Hope Weiner’s public plea to take Mel Gibson off the Hollywood blacklist inspires debate on the nature of Hollywood forgiveness.

Gibson's Anti-Semitic Remarks, Recorded Outbursts

Weiner, a longtime journalist, published the piece on Deadline Tuesday, March 11, partly titled “Hollywood, Take Mel Gibson Off Your Blacklist.” The article was timed to coincide with the 10-year-anniversary of Gibson’s controversial film The Passion of the Christ, which caused a huge uproar among Hollywood elite and viewers due to its version of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, which many deemed anti-Semitic. Gibson defended the film against such allegations and claimed The Passion of the Christ was an accurate description of the events as described in the Bible.

Soon after the film’s 2004 release, Gibson’s career began to dwindle. In 2006, Gibson was arrested on a DUI in Florida and reports of the offensive, drunken tirade he leveled at the arresting officers was leaked. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2011

12 March 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 13 Mar 2014 - 05:44

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2011, and a great year for lesser-seen gems...

Even a cursory glance at the top 10 grossing films of 2011 reveals something strange: nine of the entries are sequels. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 brought the fantasy franchise to a close with a staggering $1.3bn haul. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon wasn't too far behind with just over $1.1bn. On Stranger Tides continued the Pirates Of The Caribbean series' wave of success, despite mixed reviews.

Elsewhere in the top 10, you'll find another Twilight, a fourth Mission: Impossible, a second Kung Fu Panda, a fifth Fast, another Hangover, and further Cars. Standing alone on the list is The Smurfs, the adaptation of Peyo's Belgian comic strip. In fact, 2011 saw the release of no fewer than 28 sequels - the most we've yet seen in any given year. »

Us critics laud Oz time-traveling tales

9 March 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

By coincidence two Australian time-travelling films. had their world premieres at the weekend at the Sxsx festival in Austin, Texas, and both got effusive reviews.

Variety hailed the Spierig brothers. Predestination as an .an entrancingly strange time-travel saga that suggests a Philip K. Dick yarn by way of Jeffrey Eugenides. Middlesex or perhaps a feature-length mash-up of Looper and Cloud Atlas."

The Hollywood Reporter described first-time writer-director Hugh Sullivan.s The Infinite Man as a .semi-comic relationship film about a control-freak inventor trying time and time again to perfect an affair that may not have needed fixing before he started to tinker with it..

Pinnacle will release Predestination in the second half of the year. Starring Ethan Hawke, Sarah Snook and Noah Taylor, it centres on a secret government time-traveling agency designed to prevent future killers and terrorists from committing their crimes.

SXSW Film Review: ‘Predestination’

9 March 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An entrancingly strange time-travel saga that suggests a Philip K. Dick yarn by way of Jeffrey Eugenides’ “Middlesex,” or perhaps a feature-length mash-up of “Looper” and “Cloud Atlas,” “Predestination” succeeds in teasing the brain and touching the heart even when its twists and turns keep multiplying well past the point of narrative sustainability. Playfully and portentously examining themes of destiny, mutability and identity through the story of two strangers whose lives turn out to be intricately linked, sibling filmmakers Peter and Michael Spierig offer a skillful and atmospheric adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein’s 1960 short story ” — All You Zombies — ,” and if it’s better in the intimate early stages than in the more grandiose later passages, all in all it’s the sort of boldly illogical head trip that gives preposterousness a good name. Graced by an extraordinary breakout performance from Aussie newcomer Sarah Snook, “Predestination” is likely fated for »

Film Face-off: 'Taken' vs. 'Non-Stop'

3 March 2014 6:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Liam Neeson has a specific set of skills. Namely, he can look stern and kick ass. We didn't always know he had this capability. He was a doctor alongside Jodie Foster in Nell. He was Mr. Schindler in Schindler's List. But I've never seen either of those films, one of which is my dirty movie secret (the definition of a dirty movie secret is the film you should be most ashamed that you haven't seen). In 2008, we felt the Neeson Shift as historians call it. He starred in Taken, and with the help of a tight, basic script cowritten by Luc Besson and directed by Pierre Morel, Neeson had a new direction. It hasn't stopped. That's right, his direction is nonstop, which is probably why they named his new film Non-Stop.   The Lead Taken...
