A month after it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, Starz has purchased U.S. rights to Jason Bateman’s dark comedy “The Family Fang” and is planning to release the film theatrically in 2016, Variety has learned.
As part of the deal, Starz Digital will handle the dramedy’s digital, on-demand, and theatrical rollout. Starz’s Anchor Bay division will oversee the home video roll out following its theatrical run, and the film’s television premiere will take place on the Starz premium cable network.
“The Family Fang” is adapted from Kevin Wilson’s 2011 comic novel of the same name and stars Bateman and Nicole Kidman as siblings who reunite with their performance artist parents (Christopher Walken, Maryann Plunkett). A weekend of family dysfunction takes a detour after the parents suddenly go missing. The film is Bateman’s second as a director, following 2013’s “Bad Words.”

The immigration thriller was directed by “Gravity” screenwriter Jonás Cuarón and stars Gael García Bernal (“Y Tu Mama Tambien”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Watchmen”). It debuted this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it received strong reviews for its performances and direction, and won the Special Presentation Prize from the International Federation of Film Critics.
“‘Desierto’ operates on a level that is swift, primal and unrelenting,” wrote Variety critic Justin Chang in a favorable notice.
The film centers on a group of Mexicans whose attempts to cross the border into the United States are complicated by a shotgun-wielding vigilante. Given the headlines Donald Trump has generated by attacking immigration policy during the recent presidential race, the subject matter is certainly topical.

The history of cinema is replete with stories of the great lengths actors have gone to in order to nail their performances, from living as characters outside of their scenes to undergoing massive physical transformations and everything in between. Nicole Kidman is as dedicated to her craft as anyone, and in one particular sex scene, she let co-star John Cusack toss her around. The two costarred in 2012.s The Paperboy, and when director Lee Daniels interviewed Kidman for Interview, he brought up the rough sex scene in question. He said he was worried for her because Cusack was throwing her around "like a mop." In response to his concern, the 48-year-old actor replied: Actors have to protect each other in a way. The idea of humiliating another actor or being humiliated myself is devastating. So that's why, if he's a little rougher than he knows he's being, the last thing »

It feels like only yesterday that Gemma Collins was crying mascara stained tears while complaining of contracting malaria - but this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here is now just a mere month away.

Who? Former Hollyoaks actress who was recently axed due to being "unfit to work because of alcohol consumption".
The rumour: The 22-year-old is reportedly "hot property" as a number of reality shows try to sign her up, according to The Mirror's unnamed insider. The star - who played Sinead O'Conner for five years in the Channel 4 soap - is no stranger to TV competitions, previously taking part in Over the Rainbow - a BBC One talent »

On the eve of Nicole Kidman's return to the London stage for Photograph 51, Lee Daniels interviewed his former Paperboy leading lady for the latest issue of Interview. When Kidman expressed how much she loved being in London, Daniels wasn't 100 percent excited because he wants her to guest on Empire: Daniels: I was disappointed to hear that because, of course, I want you on my set. [both laugh]Kidman: You promised me I would be there one day. Daniels: I can't wait. While the second season of Empire is already overflowing with guest stars, who could pass up a chance for Kidman to "Drip Drop" with Hakeem? »

“Empire” continues to post impressive delayed viewing numbers. The second episode of season two grew from 13.7 million viewers to 18 million in live + 3 days of DVR and VOD playback, an increase of 31 percent, according to Nielsen estimates. The hip-hop soap opera also grew 40 percent in the advertiser-coveted adult 18-49 demographic, going from a 5.5 rating/17 share to a 7.7/24. That puts “Empire” more than two full ratings points above its nearest competition in L+3 for last week thus far; CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” followed with a 5.6/19.

“There’ve been so many incarnations of the film, and a lot of fairytales have been turned into live-action films lately. I thought, ‘Is the world ready for another one’? Then I read the ‘Pan’ script and it was so fun and different,” Hedlund, 31, told Variety at the film’s U.S. premiere at New York’s Ziegfeld Theatre on Sunday afternoon. “It also affected me emotionally. I laughed, I cried and I knew why the movie was being made. Because of [director] Joe Wright’s unique vision, the movie is very ambitious, has lot of action, and [is] wonderfully colorful. I hope people will like the movie as much as I do.”
Hedlund may not have to worry. He and his costars Hugh Jackman, »

Some like it hot, indeed! Channeling her inner Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman covers the latest issue of Interview magazine, wearing steamy vintage-style lingerie and the blonde icon's perfectly undone curls. Looking positively ageless in the photographs, Kidman, 48, models lace balconette bras, plunging shirtdresses, ruffled hemlines, and cinched waists, all of which put her incredibly taut frame on display. The Oscar-winning mom of four spoke to the magazine about her return to the stage in Photograph 51 (about English chemist Rosalind Franklin, who contributed to the discovery of [...] »
It’s no secret that “Empire” is crazy for high-wattage guest stars — and the Fox hip-hop drama’s latest is an Oscar-winning actress. Nicole Kidman, who previously collaborated with show creator Lee Daniels on the indie film “The Paperboy,” is headed to the fictional Lyons Den. Daniels interviewed Kidman for the October issue of, well, Interview magazine, and let it slip that she’ll soon be playing alongside Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. “I want you on my set,” Daniels told Kidman, currently headlining the play “Photograph 51” on London’s West End. Also Read: 'Empire' Star Terrence Howard's »

Nicole Kidman just made our eyes go wide open like never before. The Oscar winner stuns in a new steamy photo spread in the October Interview magazine. Kidman looks gorgeous in the black and white shots by photographer Fabien Baron that show her in slips, bras and underwear. Her hair is a wild mane of curls. In one pic, she stares into the camera while sucking on a piece of ice. You can practically feel the humidity of her surroundings. In another, Kidman leans against a window frame, her bra and underwear (and amazing body) are on full display underneath a lacey sheer dress. She also lays in a bathtub and gets on her hands and knees to scrub a floor. Kidman is interviewed for »
Even though Pallavi Sharda's last film Hawaizaada may not have done well at the box-office, that hasn't deterred this girl's spirit. Pallavi, who has already worked with international actors like Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel and Rooney Mara in Garth Davis' Hollywood flick Lion, will now be seen with the Irish heartthrob Jonathan Rhys Meyers (best known for the historical fiction TV series The Tudors) in a film titled Shambhala. Shambhala is basically a survivalist drama, which has been written and directed by Australian filmmaker Summer Nicks. It's a film that will showcase the journey of a survivor of a plane crash (the role will be played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers). Speaking about her role in the film, Pallavi Sharda said that she will be seen playing the role of Urdu speaking Nadia, who has an extremely strong character and who dares to defy the social norms and traditions. »

Wearing a red dress and sporting perfect make-up, Kidman will be seen going on a date with Sergei (an anthropomorphised meerkat) using the comparison website's two-for-one movie tickets offer.
Needless to say, there's an appropriately ludicrous press release statement to enjoy alongside these three promotional stills from the ad:
"Arnold Schwarzenegger was always going to be a hard act to follow but having fellow Hollywood icon Nicole Kidman part of the latest TV ad has certainly exceeded our expectations," said marketing director Mark Vile.
Arnie's previous encounters with the insurance-selling Russian munchkins saw them spill coffee over the former Mr Universe and lock him in a car before unleashing a torrent of Terminator jokes.
