It may not be the ideal birthday celebration for some, but Emma Watson was happy. The English actress turned 24 today, and while most people would plan an elaborate event or some festive get-together with their pals, Watson spend her day working on her new film in Toronto.

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section. Best Kiss Ashley Benson, James Franco & Vanessa Hudgens, "Spring Breakers" Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Scarlett Johansson, »

We’d heard back around Sundance that the title for Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” would likely change. Guess that’s not happening. “Boyhood” now has a poster and it’s, well…. not very different from the three scant photos we’ve seen. In fact, it’s the exact photo of the boy in question (Ellar Coltrane), just in poster size. Still, Linklater’s movie is worth celebrating. Shot over the course of 12 years with the same four actors Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette and the filmmaker’s daughter, Lorelei Linklater, “Boyhood” is a terrific cinematic experience chronicling the life of a family over more than a decade. It’s a journey that’s both emotional and even transcendent as the family’s center, Mason (Coltrane), goes from childhood to adulthood over the course of almost three hours (our review here). "I bet the whole farm on that property of storytelling, »

Boyhood is my most anticipated movie of 2014 as well as a film I consider an early contender for a Best Picture nomination. It received positive reviews out of Sundance and now IFC will bring it to theaters on July 11 and I cannot wait. Today the studio premiered the first poster for the film and it doesn't really have much flair to it as they've chosen to go the minimalistic route, merely Photoshopping the above still from the film, but nevertheless, any reason to talk about this movie and share my excitement I'm going to take. The film stars Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater and was filmed over short periods from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood is a groundbreaking cinematic experience covering 12 years in the life of a family. At the center is Mason (Coltrane), who with his sister Samantha (Linklater), are taken on an emotional and transcendent journey through the years, »

A dreamy new poster has arrived for Richard Linklater's award-winning festival favorite "Boyhood." Shot over short periods from 2002 to 2013 with the same four actors -- Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette and Lorelei Linklater -- the film spans the emotional journey of a family over the course of 12 years, and through the eyes of the young son Mason (Coltrane). Linklater will soon be feted at the San Francisco International Film Festival. IFC Films will open "Boyhood" stateside on July 11, ahead of the Oscar pack. Read our glowing review of the film here.

Undoubtedly one of the biggest -- and unique -- actors of his generation, Nicolas Cage got his start in 1982's "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" in a part so small if you blink you'd miss it. Then, after changing his name from Coppola to Cage, the actor's career took off and he's been a leading man ever since.
This week, Cage stars in David Gordon Green's "Joe," as a hot-tempered, but protective ex-con in a role that has critics raving about the actor's restrained performance. Whether or not you're a fan of the intense star, there's no denying he's a cinematic force to be reckoned with.
1. Born Nicolas Coppola, the actor chose Cage as his stage name to honor comic book superhero Luke Cage.
2. Inspired by Superman's birth name, »

Having been quietly developing the film project since 2011, director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) has begun expanding the cast list of his upcoming movie, Southpaw. With Jake Gyllenhaal already confirmed for the lead role, Forest Whitaker is now in talks to join him.
Southpaw is a boxing movie that charts the professional rise of a welterweight boxing champion, while he endures a variety of personal tragedies. Originally intended as a vehicle for Eminem (Marshall Mathers), after the success of 8 Mile, the screenplay is written by Sons Of Anarchy creator, Kurt Sutter. Gyllenhaal will play the boxing champion, while Forest Whitaker is eyeing the role of his trainer – a former fighter himself, now mentor to the younger champion.
The potential addition of Whitaker to this project elevates it to a new level. A Jake Gyllenhaal boxing drama is already interesting, but Forest Whitaker brings with him a presence and gravitas that is all-too-rare in modern cinema. »

Well, Magic Mike 2 is just around the corner and will reportedly be titled Magic Mike Xxl with Steven Soderbergh's first assistant on the first film, Gregory Jacobs, taking over the directorial reins. Channing Tatum wrote the screenplay and is obviously expected to return for the sequel along with the likes of Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConaughey. The film begins shooting this fall with Tatum previously saying it would be a road-trip comedy, but things could have changed since then. Collider, The Playlist IFC Films announced yesterday that Richard Linklater's Boyhood will open in Us theaters on July 11. With a screenplay by Linklater, Boyhood was filmed over short periods from 2002 to 2013, and stars Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Lorelei Linklater in a story covering 12 years in the life of a family. At the center is Mason, who with his sister Samantha, is taken on »

Last year's The Purge was a surprise hit when it was released last summer, earning $89 million worldwide despite getting mixed reviews. A sequel was approved after The Purge's opening weekend, when it earned over 11 times its $3 million budget.
July's The Purge Anarchy is set in the same dystopian future as the original, during the 12-hour period called "The Purge" where all crime is allowed. Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) takes over for Ethan Hawke in the sequel, which moves the action from a family home and places it outside in a city with no security cameras, and sees Grillo playing a one-man army bent on avenging his son's death.
The Purge: Anarchy opens on July 18.

After some debate about how to release writer-director Richard Linklater's fest hit "Boyhood," a unique chronicle of a boy's life, the film's backer IFC Films will open the film in stateside theaters on July 11. The film tracks Mason (Ellar Coltrane) from age six through his graduation from high school at age 18. His parents are played by Ethan Hawke ("Sunrise" trilogy) and Patricia Arquette, with Lorelei Linklater as his sister. Linklater filmed the story for two weeks every year for 12 years, from 2002 to 2013. IFC Films chief Jonathan Sehring greenlit the audacious project, and every year, footed the bill. After "Boyhood"'s enthusiastic reception at the Sundance Film Festival, Linklater went on to win the Silver Bear for Best Director at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival. The film also played well at Austin resident Linklater's hometown SXSW. There was some discussion of selling the film to another distributor, but financier IFC opted to. »

Back in 2002, Linklater had the idea to make a movie about childhood — but rather than telling a story about a singular moment or chapter from growing up, he decided to cast a 6-year-old (Ellar Coltrane) and film him a little bit every year until he went to college. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette play the boy’s parents, and Linklater’s daughter, Lorelei, plays the boy’s sister.
IFC Films agreed to produce and distribute the film at the outset, and their faith was rewarded when Linklater’s daring, »

This new project from the man behind the ‘Before…‘ trilogy is particularly special because it’s been filmed over 12 years from 2002 to 2013, and follows those dozen years within the life of a family. It’s already had great critical feedback from Sundance, the Berlin International Film Festival and SXSW and really sounds astonishing.
Boyhood is based around Mason, played by Ellar Coltrane, who with his sister Samantha, is taken on an emotional and transcendent journey through the years, from childhood to adulthood and with that, we’ll literally see Ellar grow up on-screen from 5- 18 years old.

One of the most interesting film projects I've been following (for a very long time) is Richard Linklater's Boyhood. The director has been working on the movie since 2002, and it follows a family and what they experience during twelve years of their lives. Boyhood stars Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater, and reviews so far have been outstanding (you can read ours from Sundance here.) Now we know when we will be able to check out this »

The hastily turned around sequel to The Purge arrives in cinemas later this year, with writer/director James DeMonaco guiding the film once more. He's got a different lead cast, with no Ethan Hawke this time around. Instead, Frank Grillo and Michael K Williams star, with the idea remaining that for 12 hours every year, crime is allowed.
The first film took that concept - a really good one - and did very little with it in the end. We hope that the sequel, which is due in cinemas in July, doesn't make the same mistake, and that in spite of the quick turnaround, The Purge: Anarchy realises a lot more of the potential here.
Here's the new trailer for the film...
