Thomas Knights wants you to think about action heroes. About James Bond, or the characters Arnie gets to play. He wants you to think about romantic leads in Hollywood movies, about the guy who gets the girl, about the film star every man wants to be and every woman wants to be with. And then he wants you to ask yourself this: how come those men are never ginger?
That's why he's spent the past couple of years photographing red-headed men – not tubby, acne-ridden men with greasy hair, but vivid and beautiful red-headed men, the kind who – were it not for their hair colour – would make any member of the mousey majority jealous. »

The Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. has seen more than a few tie victories in recent years: The very first time I voted, in 2006, there was a lead-actor split between Forest Whitaker and Sacha Baron Cohen. In 2010, we awarded best director to David Fincher and Olivier Assayas, and just last year, Jennifer Lawrence and Emmanuelle Riva shared the actress prize. Whenever this happens — usually as the result of a deadlock between a near-certain Oscar contender and a gonzo left-field choice — something like a general cheer goes up from the membership for having arrived at such a happy but unexpected compromise.
Still, in my eight years as a Lafca member, I’ve never seen us share the wealth quite so lavishly as we did during yesterday’s spirited and sometimes contentious five-and-a-half-hour voting meeting, which resulted in no »

This thing on my DVR was the 4th season pilot, right?
I kid I kid. But horrified I was. If you miss live "events" it's difficult (one might say pointless) to write about them later so I promise to be quick about this. What I enjoyed far more than the show, which I caught a day later, was catching up on the articles and tweets about the show wherein people either hilariously skewered it or contorted themselves memorably to find nice things to say or excuse its Carrie Underwoodedness. Her acting was far far worse than I'd been told, recalling Julianne Moore's dead on approximation of porn star acting in Boogie Nights only dumber and with less of a nose drip to help with the dead eyes. I initially was surprised that Carrie wasn't oversinging it but the surprise soon faded because after the hills came alive with the »

Her romantic notions take another knock when she bumps into former student Jason (Michael Angarano), a promising playwright whose potential is being crushed by his overbearing father (Greg Kinnear). Like one of her literary heroines, Linda sets about championing Jason's cause. »

Directed by Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry), the horror film tells the story of Carrie White, who’s bullied at school and controlled by her overly religious mother (Julianne Moore, (6 Souls). When she’s pushed too far at her senior prom, Carrie unleashes her telekinetic power on her small town.
Despite critical darling Moretz’s starring role, the 2013 Carrie didn’t wow critcs, earning a 49% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes, compared to a 92% for the original 1976 film that stared Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. Big audiences didn’t show up for the new version at the theaters, grossing Carrie $35 million.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is poised to enter the top 10 biggest sellers of 2013, with The Hobbit: The Desolation posing its greatest end-of-year threat
• More on the UK box office
• Hunger Games: Catching Fire – review
Following its sensational debut the previous weekend, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had no problem hanging on to the top spot, with a gross (£5.53m) more than triple its nearest rival, Gravity, with £1.74m. The drop for Catching Fire – down 46% – will be considered respectable, given the huge anticipation for the film, which saw fans rush to see it on opening weekend. The original Hunger Games fell only 33% in its second frame, but declining revenue curves for sequels are invariably steeper. Last November, the final Twilight dropped 66% in its second session.

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2001, and a vintage year for lesser-seen gems...
Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke may have seen 2001 as the year we'd head off to meet alien intelligences in the depths of space, but in reality, its cinematic landscape was dominated by fantasy rather than extra-terrestrials. Rowling and Tolkien dominated the box office, with Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and The Fellowship Of The Ring earning almost $1bn each, while Monsters, Inc and Shrek thrilled old and young audiences alike.
At the other end of the spectrum of success, 2001 was such a vintage year for movies that we had to whittle our usual selection of 25 films down from an initial selection of more than 40. This is why the decision was made - with heavy heart - to exclude some of our favourite films, »
Fear her power! Unleash the telekinetic horror when Carrie debuts on Digital HD January 3 and on Blu-ray and DVD January 14 from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Johnny Weir Says Gay Protestors Are “Idiots.” “Referring to the new anti-gay law in Russia, which forbids virtually all public mention of homosexuality as a threat to children, the athlete flippantly characterized it as ‘no anal sex in front of libraries.’”

The list of 15 documentary films that have advanced in the Oscar race has been released, and sadly, Bridegroom is not included. On the plus side, God Loves Uganda has a shot to make it to the final five.

When the actor stopped by EW to take the Pop Culture Personality Test, he revealed how he hit his television over the series ending of The Sopranos which – six-years-old spoiler ahead – saw the screen ambiguously cut to black, literally leaving viewers in the dark about Tony’s fate.

‘Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »

An arthouse fishing-trawler documentary sounds like a practical joke, but this takes us to places we've never before – into the ocean depths and back out on to the decks with the catch. It's a series of dark, semi-abstract tableaux full of flapping fish, clanking machinery and tattooed fishermen doing wet, gory work. It's easy to forget this is real life you're watching.
Saving Mr Banks (PG)
How Walt Disney came to make Mary Poppins was hardly a pressing movie mystery, and one suspects a spoonful of drama has been added, but the leads are eminently watchable.

Stephen King is one of the world’s most successful contemporary authors. Selling over 350 million books since his career began, King has seen the vast majority of his stories adapted for both the big and small screen. It all started in 1976 when King’s first novel Carrie was adapted by director Brian De Palma. Carrie starred Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie and a then unknown John Travolta, and saw outcast Carrie turn the tables on her tormentors at her high school prom thanks to her newfound telekinetic powers. Since the film’s success, numerous other stories by the author have come to life and most have been lucky enough to follow in Carrie’s footsteps. This week we see things come full circle as Carrie receives the remake treatment courtesy of Boys Don’T Cry director Kimberly Peirce. Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick Ass) will be stepping into Spacek’s rather big shoes, »

Stephen King's bloody teen masterpiece has been updated – but with few 21st-century additions and fewer still original touches
It is strange to think that the high school prom is an American tradition that Brits are attempting to import, despite Hollywood doing its best to warn us about it over the years, in all sorts of films. Supposedly a romantic event for teenagers, an appropriate night to lose one's virginity and an opportunity for the prom queen to experience a status boost equal to her wedding day, it has been regularly exposed on screen as a theatre of cruelty, anxiety and most of all, humiliation. The two classic texts are surely the Farrelly brothers' There's Something About Mary (1998), in which Ben Stiller gets his penis caught in his zipper, and Brian De Palma's Carrie (1976), in which Sissy Spacek gets a bucket of pig's blood tipped over her head. It is this second film, »
