8 amazing rock 'n' roll transformations: From Gary Oldman to Cate Blanchett

19 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic All By My Side opens in cinemas today (October 24).

Andre '3000' Benjamin plays the iconic musician in the movie, which depicts Jimi's humble beginnings to becoming possibly the world's greatest guitarist.

This has inspired us to compile our own list of the greatest portrayals of musicians in rock 'n' roll biopics, often going above and beyond mere physical transformation:

1. Andy Serkis as Ian Dury

Andy Serkis was BAFTA nominated for his critically-acclaimed role - played to perfection - as charismatic '70s punk rock singer and songwriter Ian Dury in Mat Whitecross's 2010 biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

To portray Dury's physical condition - he contracted polio as a child - Serkis lost two stone and built up the muscle mass on the right-hand side of his body so the other side was weaker.

He added: "I had a body wax. It's the most »

7 Badass Ladies With (Literally) Killer Legs

23 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The scene starts out typically enough. An exhausted, blood-covered man jumps into a car and peels out of the area with a prone, bloodied female body lying in the back seat. As he drives away, however, she watches. Before he can notice the change, she’s turned around, raised her legs, and wrapped them around his neck. It’s equal parts sadistic and erotic as she perches on her shoulders, her skirt riding up to reveal her garter belt and panties. She isn’t serious and focused, but delightfully cackling, her eyes closed as if she just heard the funniest joke. He swerves left and right, struggling for air and failing to stop her as blood smears all over the car. He crashes and is knocked unconscious. With her hands cuffed behind her back she crawls to the front, kicks out the windshield, grabs an envelope with her teeth, and wiggles her way out. She »

Keanu Reeves on 'John Wick,' 'Bill & Ted 3,' and That 'Point Break' Remake (Exclusive)

21 October 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Keanu Reeves has been many things over the years The One, Ted, sad. But this week he assumes a new role as John Wick in the movie of the same name, a high octane thriller directed by a pair of former stuntmen (David Leitch and Chad Stahelski) and so relentlessly entertaining that it will make you forget about whatever the hell "47 Ronin" was.

In "John Wick," Reeves essays the role of a former hitman who has given up that life for the love of his wife, Helen (Bridget Moynahan). After Helen succumbs to a longtime illness, Wick is left alone and grieving, comforted only by the affection of the small puppy Helen left behind. When some Russian thugs (led by Alfie Allen) break into his home, it sets Wick on a long, bloody path of revenge. And it's really, really cool.

We sat down with Reeves last week and talked about all things "John Wick, »

Want a peek into the mysterious mind of Shia Labeouf? Then look no further than the actor's latest sit-down with Interview magazine.

The 28-year-old actor poses shirtless for the spread, showing off his scruffy beard and buffed-up bod in a series of swoon-worthy shots in addition to dishing on his tumultuous relationship with his father, his ability to find his faith after filming the movie Fury as well as his infamous behavior, which includes a recent arrest at the Broadway play Cabaret.

While Labeouf may have been compared to actors such as Tom Hanks early in his career, the Lawless star says he always rejected those comparisons. "The guys who I looked up to were far darker," he admits, citing actors such as Gary Oldman, Sean Pennand Joaquin Phoenix as his idols.

Not surprisingly, Shia Labeouf looks up to actors who he says have dealt with darkness: Gary Oldman, Sean Penn and Joaquin Phoenix. But the man he credits with helping him early on? Ben Affleck, who produced his 2003 comedy-drama The Battle of Shaker Heights. "Ben is a really charming dude," he says in the November cover story for Interview, on newsstands Nov. 11. "He was the first guy who really took me off to the side and made me feel like I could do it." What Affleck told Labeouf proved to be sage advice, especially as the former child star recovers from »

Hey Hollywood, Please Don't Soften Up Badass Characters!

17 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I went and saw Universal PicturesDracula Untold last weekend, and not only was I extremely disappointed in the story and script, but their portrayal of Dracula was absurd. Dracula is a badass character, he's suppose to be a very scary dude, and even the real life person that he's based on, Vlad, is just as terrifying, maybe even more so! That is a man that should be feared. Unfortunately, the people who made Dracula Untold removed all of that from this character. They made him a soft heroic person that absolutely does not strike fear in the hearts of men. Dracula is supposed to be a villain. The furthest they should take him away from that would be to make him an anti-hero, but they didn't even play with that notion. I will say that Luke Evans played the part fantastically! It was just the way that the »

Gotham 1.1 Blog: Pilot Review [Contains Spoilers]

13 October 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Danny Cannon

Writer: Bruno Heller

Cast: Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Sean Pertwee, Jada Pinkett Smith, Camren BicondovaErin Richards, Cory Michael Smith, Zabryna Guevara and John Doman

Synopsis: A new recruit in Captain Sarah Essen’s Gotham City Police Department, Detective James Gordon is paired with Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham’s highest-profile cases: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. 

Verdict: After 75 years worth of Comic Books, 10 different animated shows, 8 big screen movies and 5 faces of Batman…it’s fair to say that Gotham had it’s fair share of anticipation. When it was first announced that a live action television series chronicling the early years of Gotham City was in development, the news was met with an equal amount of criticism and curiosity. After the CW’s Smallville took 10 years to put a cape on Tom Welling’s Clark Kent, »

'Gotham' Nycc Panel Teases Harvey Dent and Victor Zsasz

Gotham stars Ben McKenzie (James Gordon), Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), Sean Pertwee (Alfred Pennyworth), Robin Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean), and executive producer Danny Cannon took to the stage at New York Comic-Con earlier today where they revealed new details about what fans can expect throughout Season 1 of the new series.

Earlier this month, the show cast Nicholas D'Agosto as Gotham District Attorney Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face, with executive producer Danny Cannon revealing that he will make his debut in the show's ninth episode, while Victor Zsasz, who was shown in a preview released last month, will show up in the seventh episode. When asked if Harley Quinn will ever appear on the show, the executive producer revealed he eventually wants to see all of the Batman villains on the show, but some can't be included because of how young Bruce is in the show.

Film Review: Artificially Glorified ‘Dracula Untold’ Lacks Reason for Being Retold

11 October 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – For moviegoers, each new film is a chance to escape, feel, fear, cry, be thrilled or laugh. Filmmakers and actors want you to experience this range of emotions, but producers and investors care most about the film making money. That’s why Hollywood is scared of truly original stories. Originality is an unknown without a built-in fan base.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

To minimize their risk and inspire confidence in a return on investment, most new films these days are based on a best-selling book (or a series), a beloved comic book or a remake of an already famous character from the past. Original films like “Juno” and “Once” happen once in a blue moon. They take a huge viral following to break free and impress at the box office.

Going into a short feature-length film like “Dracula Untold,” which is only 92 minutes, you already know it’s following a safety formula. »

Play It Again, Vlad: Shiner’s Debut Attempts to Reboot Legendary Monster

It’s a bit hard on the undead when you shackle their malevolent natures into the censorship of the PG-13 vehicle, one of many reasons that Gary Shiner’s directorial debut, Dracula Untold, doesn’t quite fly right. Another attempt to reboot its slim grab bag of classic movie monsters, Universal at least manages to buoy this bastardization with a decent budget, though its nonsensical narrative isn’t much better than the stench of I, Frankenstein. Cinema’s greatest villains are being replaced by hunky, B-grade actors (sorry to lump you in there Aaron Eckhart) that now have to compete with the action extravaganzas of the Marvel glut at the box office, and until that ever ends, all these reboots can do is reflect what they are—pale, lifeless, inferior copies of the original material they keep recycling. »

George Clooney: 'Batman & Robin got me banned from Comic-Con for 20 years'

10 October 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

George Clooney has quipped that Batman & Robin got him banned from Comic Con events for 20 years.

The actor interrupted his honeymoon yesterday (October 9) to appear at New York Comic Con and promote his forthcoming sci-fi film Tomorrowland.

Confirming that the event was his first ever Comic Con, Clooney said: "Yes, on top of it being my honeymoon I am a virgin."

He continued: "I think since my Batman I was disinvited from Comic Con for 20 years. You're saying it, I see the comments sections on all you guys.

"I met Adam West backstage just now and said, 'Hey, I'm really sorry!' He goes, 'Give me a fist bump', and I said, 'Just hit me!'"

Clooney's ill-fated turn as the Dark Knight brought to a close the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher run on the franchise in 1997.

The series was put on ice for eight years and revived by »

Legendary TV has begun development of a new TV series reboot of the "Lost in Space" franchise reports Deadline.

Luke Evans would 'love to' wear the fangs again after 'Dracula Untold'

8 October 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Luke Evans is finishing his run as Bard the Bowman in this year's "The Hobbit:  The Battle of Five Armies," the third entry in that series, and he is definitely interested in being an integral part of another franchise.  He has a chance at that with this week's "Dracula Untold." Directed by Gary Shore, this new tale of the world's most famous vampire is an origin story, with Evans starring as the Transylvanian Prince, Vlad III.  Taking place in the 15th Century, the movie offers the story of how Vlad, (in this version) a kind and just ruler with a questionable past winds up becoming the monster we know as Dracula.  Evans spent a few minutes with us earlier this week to talk about the movie and whether he'll ever wear fangs again.  Short answer, he hopes to. "I'd love to go wherever he's going to go," Evans said.  "Let's »
