Bond Director Prepares To Dive For ‘Hunter Killer’

13 December 2014 1:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s resurrected superspy James Bond twice in Goldeneye and Casino Royale. Now it’s hoped director Martin Campbell will give long-gestating submarine thriller Hunter Killer a shot in the arm. Based on the novel Firing Point by George Wallace and Don Keith, the plot concerns an underwater battle of wits between a rogue Russian commander and American special forces. With echoes of Tom Clancy’s The Hunt For Red October, the film appears to be bringing the clash between Communism and capitalism back to the Hollywood arena. Casting details are yet to be announced but expect some grizzled faces to be lit by blinking radar screens. Gerard Butler is said to be in the frame, though whether he’ll be rolling his R’s or chomping on a cigar remains to be seen.

Campbell cut his teeth on murky political TV drama Edge Of Darkness (which he also remade »

Chris Rock Facts: 21 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Top Five' Star

12 December 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Nearly 20 years ago, Chris Rock's popularity skyrocketed. Today, he's still at the top of his game.

After stints on "Saturday Night Live" and "In Living Color" and no film offers in sight, Rock thought he was already washed up. The young comedian went back to the drawing board, toured the country as a stand-up, and the result was "Bring the Pain." The 1996 stand-up special transformed Rock from "that guy" to "the guy" nearly overnight -- but he still never shined on the big screen. By nearly all accounts, though, that's all changed this winter. "Top Five" finds the comedian at the top of his game (no pun intended), a critically acclaimed feature written by, directed by, and starring Rock.

From his famous mentor to his rough school days, here are 21 things you probably don't know about Chris Rock.

1. Chris Rock was born February 7, 1965 in Andrews, South Carolina to Rosalie Tingman and Julius Rock. »

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

10 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.

Here's where a new running feature comes into play:

As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

How to be SAG Snubbed Even When You're Nominated

10 December 2014 7:06 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As is our annual tradition we like to peruse the credits of the SAG Ensemble nods to see who got left out despite their film's nomination. The Film Experience started this kind of analysis ten years ago when The Aviator had some really dumb exclusions and inclusions but lots of other sites now cover the injustice. We never get credit for starting this line of Norma Rae righteous anger but, that said, at least a lot of people have it now.

Did SAG think her face looked like she'd licked a homelessman's ass?

If you aren't familiar SAG uses a system whereby only actors with solitary title cards are official nominees for the Cast category. This means if you are famous in a bit part and have a good agent you are more likely to be an official nominee than the unknown who delivered a better performance in possibly a »

Despite James Franco willingly sharing his "personal" information on Saturday Night Live this weekend, the stars affected may not be as thrilled to have their secrets spilled.

Team Fyc: Gugu Mbatha-Raw in "Belle" for Best Actress

9 December 2014 6:50 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Editor's Note: We're featuring individually chosen Fyc's for various longshots in the Oscar race. We'll never repeat a film or a category so we hope you enjoy the variety of picks. And if you're lucky enough to be an AMPAS, HFPA, or Critics Group voter, take note! Here's abstew on "Belle".

As a graduate of Great Britain's prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Gugu Mbatha-Raw was trained in the classics of British theatre. She began her career treading the boards in productions of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with Andrew Garfield and Hamlet on Broadway with Jude Law. Like most classically trained British thespians making the leap to the big screen, a Merchant Ivory-type period piece would naturally lend itself to her Shakespearean background. But despite her pedigree, Mbatha-Raw probably wouldn't traditionally be cast as Queen Elizabeth I or Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennett on film. Which is why her breakout »
