Nathaniel Gives Thanks

26 November 2015 1:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

You've heard from a few members of our team of their quick lists of gratitude so naturally your host and obsessive ringleader, Nathaniel, must chime in. As you read this I'm surely already stuffing myself but this year I've planned ahead with a big diet and exercize program to commence on November 30th.

I'm thankful for...

..."rug" in Room, steering wheels in Mad Max Fury Road, the train sets in Carol and Ant-Man, and Gerda's evolving portraits of Lili in The Danish Girl

... Grandma's bonobos fixation

... Sarah Paulson's ability to elevate every single project she's in whether said project is awesome (Carol) or, let's say, "challenged" (Ahs: Hotel and Ahs in general for that matter)

... the way 2015's hottest topics kept reminding us of Cate Blanchett's Blue Jasmine speech in 2014

The world is round, people!"

...a tight squeeze, with shimmering bosom, in Paolo Sorrentino's Youth

Red Carpet Lineup Xxl: Nicole, Jada, Paz and Kate(s)

25 November 2015 7:28 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jose here. Nicole Kidman won another award! Nathaniel recently praised her work in Photograph 51 in London, and the voters at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards agreed with him, for they gave her a Best Actress award to go with her Oscar, Globes and other statuettes.

Nicole wasn't the only movie-related winner: James McAvoy and Imelda Staunton, also won awards for their work in The Ruling Class and Gypsy, respectively. At the event Nicole was simply majestic in an Alexander McQueen design.

...and before you all whine about how Cate wore it better (she did wear a similar McQueen to the Robin Hood premiere at Cannes in 2010),  be reminded that...

a) McQueen should be worn by all screen queens

b) Nicole is flawless!

c) Cate was in Robin Hood...

d) most importantly, Cate and Nicole love each other as proved by this image to your left.

You'll Never Guess What Adele Calls Jimmy Fallon During Their Game of "Box of Lies"

24 November 2015 9:00 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Adele dropped by The Tonight Show on Monday to promote her new album, 25. During her appearance, Adele played a hilarious round of "Box of Lies" with Jimmy Fallon and showcased her golden sense of humor, which we most recently caught a glimpse of when she decided to disguise herself as "Jenny" and auditioned to be an Adele impersonator during a BBC prank. Scarlett Johansson, Emma Stone, and Nicole Kidman have also played the game during past appearances, but we must say Adele might have just taken the cake for funniest guest yet. See who wins the faceoff in the clip above, then check out her recent performance on Saturday Night Live. »

Chiwetel Ejiofor to Be Honored at British Independent Film Awards

24 November 2015 4:17 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Chiwetel Ejiofor will be honored at the British Independent Film Awards on Dec. 6. He will receive the Richard Harris Award, which recognizes an outstanding contribution to British film by an actor.

Previous recipients have included John Hurt, Bob Hoskins, Daniel Day-Lewis, Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon and Emma Thompson.

Jared Harris, Harris’ son, commented: “Although the recipients of this award have all been embraced by the establishment, they all came from outside it, fought their way in on the strength of their talent, claimed their place and changed the status quo: a journey that describes Chiwetel’s career perfectly. His talent is immense, it has brought him deserved worldwide recognition, and he is in his prime.”

In 1996, Ejiofor caught the attention of Steven Spielberg who cast him in “Amistad,” opposite Morgan Freeman and Anthony Hopkins. In 2002, he was nominated for his first major awards: the Bifa for »

New 'Wonder Woman' logo, updated cast list, and first official photo

23 November 2015 4:46 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While speculation over the cast of "Wonder Woman" has been circulating the internet for months, Warner Bros. set the record straight this weekend by announcing the official cast for the upcoming standalone film, aptly titled "Wonder Woman". According the press release, (in addition to previously confirmed lead actress Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins), Chris Pine has been officially confirmed to be playing Captain Steve Trevor. A photo of him from the set of "Wonder Woman" was released a few weeks ago via Instagram, but this is the first time Warner Bros. has officially confirmed his role as Steve Trevor. While Nicole Kidman was previously in negotiations to play an Amazonian warrior in "Wonder Woman", it would appear that Robin Wright ("House of Cards") has signed on for the role in Kidman's place. This could mean Wright will be channeling some of Claire Underwood's fierceness by playing Diana's mother, »

'Mockingjay Part 2' Takes Franchise Low of $101 Million

22 November 2015 11:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in July 2012, Lionsgate confirmed that Suzanne Collins' final Hunger Games novel will be split into a two-part movie. The decision, which came just months after The Hunger Games franchise launched, angered many fans of the books, and it seems that strategy may have backfired. Box Office Mojo reports that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 took the top spot at the box office with $101 million, the lowest opening weekend of all four movies.

The $101 million opening weekend is far lower than many box office projections, many of which predicted the franchise finale would earn around $120 million. The Hunger Games opened in 2012 with $152.5 million, followed by 2013's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which opened with a franchise-high $158 million, and last year's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 with $121.8 million. The franchise has taken in $2.2 billion worldwide since opening just three years ago, and while The Hunger Games: Mockingjay »

Wonder Woman: full cast confirmed

22 November 2015 10:09 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Wonder Woman will shoot in the UK, France and Italy, and the main cast has now been revealed.

Over the weekend, we got the first official shot from Warner Bros' Wonder Woman movie, that Gal Gadot is starring in, and Patty Jenkins is directing. Furthermore, we've now got details of the film's full cast.

Gadot is taking on the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, debuting the role in next March's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. We think it's fair to say that we all pretty much know that.

Joining her in the cast?

Star Trek's Chris Pine is Captain Steve Trevor. Robin Wright (House Of Cards), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (Naked), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting), Said Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In) and the brilliant Lucy Davis (Shaun Of The Dead) have all been confirmed.

Missing from that list is Nicole Kidman, »

Secret In Their Eyes Review

22 November 2015 12:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A decade ago it would have been difficult to imagine Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman sharing top billing for a movie; however, in 2015, it’s hardly a surprise that the pair of iconic 90s stars – alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor – are stuck in a tepid remake of 2009’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winner El Secreto de sus Ojos (which translates to the English title Secret In Their Eyes).

For those unfamiliar with the original, it takes place in a world of departmental obstacles and corruptive cover-ups and follows a man named Ray (Ejiofor), who enlists the help of Claire (Kidman) to seek justice for their colleague Jess (Roberts) after her daughter’s dead body is melodramatically discovered in a dumpster.

Set amongst a team of counter-terrorism investigators, the plot alternately unfolds in 2002 – in the aftermath of the murder and paranoid wake of the 9/11 attacks – and in the present day, 2015 – as Ray asks Claire, »

The Secret in Their Eyes Is a Cop Movie That’s Uninterested In Cops, Crimes, and Criminals

22 November 2015 11:03 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As a crime flick, Billy Ray’s The Secret in Their Eyes, a remake of Juan Jose Campanella’s Oscar-winning 2009 film of the same title, has little suspense, either of the whodunit or cat-and-mouse variety. Nor does it offset said lack of suspense the way some genre other genre films have done, by digging into the minutiae of police work. It’s a cop movie that’s largely uninterested in cops, crimes, or criminals. And yet, despite all that, the film is at times an effective, evocative mood piece. The funereal pall of sorrow that hangs over everything these characters do has a strange, surprising pull.Much like the original, the film unfolds in two timelines. In 2002, while investigating a potentially radical Los Angeles mosque, FBI investigator Ray Kasten (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Deputy District Attorney Claire Sloan (Nicole Kidman), and Da investigator Jess Cobb (Julia Roberts) are called to a nearby murder scene. »

'Mockingjay Part 2' Creeps Over $100 Million for First Place Finish

22 November 2015 9:49 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 opened $20 million below Part 1, but with an estimated opening weekend of $101 million it becomes the fifth 2015 release to open above the century mark. It's tough to call a film that opens north of $100 million a flop (because it's not), but "disappointing" seems appropriate given the lofty heights previous installments reached. Theories as to what happened are easy enough to conjure up and most likely they all played some kind of role in why this fourth installment in what, effectively, is a three film franchise couldn't even match the opening of its predecessor. In its favor, Mockingjay 2 opened an hour earlier on Thursday night than Part 1, it had Jennifer Lawrence as its star and it was the finale in a franchise that has now grossed more than $2.5 billion worldwide. Heading into the weekend there was something of a palpable question mark concerning how well it would do, »

‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Debuts to Franchise-Low $101 Million

22 November 2015 7:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” dominated the weekend box office with the final film in the science-fiction franchise debuting to $101 million.

That ranks as the year’s fifth biggest opening, but it wasn’t as big a sendoff for Katniss Everdeen and her fellow revolutionaries as some had predicted. The massive bow falls short of tracking that projected the picture would top $120 million in its initial weekend in theaters. It also represents a low for the series, falling far short of the $158.1 million high-water mark established by 2013’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” It’s a sign, perhaps, that interest in the dystopian world of Panem has crested.

Investors in Lionsgate, the studio behind the series, reacted negatively to news that “Mockingjay – Part 2” would miss projections, sending the company’s stock down more than 3% on Friday.

The series made up ground overseas, picking up $147 million after debuting in nearly every significant foreign territory, »

Box Office: ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2’ Aims for $102 Million Weekend

21 November 2015 8:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The final chapter in The Hunger Games saga, Mockingjay — Part 2, is on track to hit a $102 million bullseye in its opening weekend, based on Friday receipts.

The fourth installment in the Jennifer Lawrence-led series hit a total of $46 million Friday at 4,175 locations, handily topping all other titles at the box office. The Lionsgate release started strong in Thursday night previews, generating $16 million. Earlier estimates had pegged the actioner’s three-day total around $110 million. This marks the lowest opening day in the “Hunger Games” franchise.

The three earlier “Hunger Games” pics performed mightily at the box office, combining for $2.3 billion in worldwide grosses. “Mockingjay — Part 1” opened to $121.9 million domestically following the first film’s $152.5 million launch and “Catching Fire’s” $158.1 million kickoff.

Should it hit its expected mark, “Mockingjay — Part 2” will be the year’s fifth-biggest U.S. opening, behind “Jurassic World” ($208.8 million), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($191.3 million), “Furious 7 »

First Official Wonder Woman Still; Robin Wright, Danny Huston And More Join Cast

21 November 2015 5:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has announced the commencement of production on director Patty Jenkins’ solo Wonder Woman movie with a press release detailing the new cast additions, as well as an image that gives us our first official look at Gal Gadot (in this movie, anyway) as Princess Diana herself.

The additional cast members include Robin WrightDanny Huston and David Thewlis – though the characters they’ll be playing are being kept under wraps for now. Nicole Kidman was said to be in talks to play another Amazonian warrior believed to be Diana’s mother, Hippolyta, but there’s no mention of her here. Perhaps that’s being saved for a separate announcement, or talks simply fell through and Robin Wright is now playing that role?

Regardless, you can check out the full press release, along with the first official Wonder Woman still, below:

New Image From Wonder Woman

While we get our introduction to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, her own solo movie is coming in 2017, and to mark the start of shooting, Gadot has shared through Twitter a new image of DC Comics' warrior princess. Really digging the shot of Big Ben in the background. The photo also coincides with a full cast list, that also includes Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David, Thewlis, Ewen Bremmer, Said Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis. Looks like the rumours of Nicole Kidman as Hippolyta, and Sean Bean and Eva Green pulling double villain duties were just that. Released: June 23rd 2017 »

Earlier today, Gal Gadot released a new Wonder Woman image to signal the start of filming on the movie. Warner Bros. accompanied it with a press release (h/t Batman-News) containing the main cast of the Dceu movie.
