Vincent D’Onofrio Eyes Villainous Role In The Magnificent Seven

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vincent D’Onofrio may have once played the good guy, but he harbors no worries whatsoever that he’s now been typecast as quite the opposite. Gone are those Law & Order days, as D’Onofrio is trekking out west for Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven. And if the ‘villainous’ descriptor in the title didn’t give it away, he’s not going to be one of that titular crew.

The Magnificent Seven was originally ushered to the big screen back in 1960 by John Sturges and a starry cast of leading men. For Fuqua’s re-telling, it’s believed that the story will unravel after the Civil War, and depict a similar plot about a small town threatened by thugs. When one resident stands up to a crew of drug barons intent on ruining their community, she hires a bounty hunter and his gang to scare them away. »

Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel in “The End of the Tour”

Champaign, Illinois isn’t quite Cannes or Park City, Utah, but the film festival hosted there annually in Roger Ebert’s name is as charming as they come. Now Ebertfest, in its 17th year, has announced its lineup of films prior to its four day run in April.

Among them are James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour, Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes, Roy Andersson’s A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting On Existence, Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood, and special screenings of A Bronx Tale with Robert De Niro and the 1926 silent film The Son of the Sheik »

10 Things You Never Knew About Karen Gillan

25 March 2015 2:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paul A. Hebert/Invision/Pa Archive

Karen Gillan became a household name when she was introduced into the Doctor Who hall of fame as Amy Pond back in 2010. She joined the series at the right time, too, as its ever growing success around the globe – most notably in America – meant that her portrayal of the Time Lord’s coveted companion gained her recognition across the pond (no pun intended), too, which has certainly worked in her favour since she left the reputable realms of the Whoniverse behind.

In fact, she’s established herself as an almighty on screen force to be reckoned with since she got zapped back in time by the Weeping Angels in the mid-Series 7 finale (nope, still not over it!) and her career has subsequently been going from strength to strength with no signs of slowing down any time soon.
