12 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A powerful and emotional new trailer has been released for the upcoming and highly anticipated TV movie adaptation of Larry Kramer's 1985 play about the AIDS epidemic in New York City, The Normal Heart.

With a star-studded cast, »

Watch The Trailer For HBO Films TV Drama Feature ‘The Normal Heart’

12 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Last Year, HBO Films brought us the superb Behind The Candelabra, a film that was released theatrically in the UK, and one that went on to be nominated for a BAFTA. In 2014, the celebrated cable network is releasing Ryan Murphy’s TV movie The Normal Heart, which will almost certainly get a cinema bow overseas as well, and possibly grab some awards attention come next year too.

The film, written by Larry Kramer, based on his Tony award winning play of the same name, tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and the gay activist (played by Mark Ruffalo), who attempts to raise awareness of it.

Ruffalo joins Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts in the superb cast of this film, Murphy’s first feature since the Roberts vehicle Eat, Pray, Love.

Check out the first trailer for the film, »

Hollywood Bad Times: Part 2

15 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Robert W. Welkos The Curse of the Blood Moons isn’t on any studio release schedule this year as far as we know, but then again, we’re not talking about the latest horror flick. We’re talking about Hollywood itself. No matter how you look at it, 2014 is shaping up to be among the most turbulent year Hollywood has ever experienced—and we have yet to reach summer. It wasn’t that long ago that Hollywood was reeling from the drug overdose death of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman in his Greenwich Village apartment. Hoffman’s death followed on the heels of director Woody Allen being accused by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow of molesting her when she was only 7 years old. Then there was the suicide of Nancy Motes, Julia Roberts’ half-sister, who died of a drug overdose and left a five-page suicide ranting against the Oscar winner. »

Full Trailer for Ryan Murphy’s The Normal Heart Starring Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, and Julia Roberts

16 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has released a new, full-length The Normal Heart trailer for director Ryan Murphy’s (Glee, American Horror Story) adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Larry Kramer stage play.  The film follows the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and it looks at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.  Though Murphy is a bit hit and miss (his last two films were Running with Scissors and Eat, Pray, Love), I’m encouraged by The Normal Heart’s stellar ensemble cast and the fact that Kramer penned the screenplay.  Mark Ruffalo and Taylor Kitsch, in particular, look to be standouts, and the tone feels reminiscent of the heartwrenching documentary How to Survive a Plague, in which Kramer plays an integral role.

Watch: New Trailer For HBO's 'The Normal Heart' With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Battles The Establishment

16 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Okay, so "The Normal Heart" didn't make the Cannes Film Festival lineup like I figured it would, but that doesn't mean we're not putting this one on our watch list for next month. A new trailer is here to remind you why you might want to tune into HBO in May to watch something other than "Game Of Thrones."  Directed by Ryan Murphy, starring Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons, and based on the play by Larry Kramer, the film chronciles the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, with doctors and activists trying to raise awareness about the disease, fighting against an indifferent medical community and politicians who won't come near the cause. Potent stuff, and it'll be a tricky balance to get across the drama without tipping too far into histrionics. But this is the kind of »

We've already seen a few preview clips for "The Normal Heart," the HBO film based on the Tony-Award winning play by Larry Kramer about the HIV/AIDS crisis that hits New York in the early 1980s, but a full length trailer has just arrived. Directed by Ryan Murphy ("American Horror Story," "Glee"), "The Normal Heart" stars Mark Ruffalo as a gay-American man who tries to combat the lack of knowledge regarding the disease, which is seen as a "gay epidemic" by the public after it's first discovered. In the trailer below, we see Ruffalo desperately try to rally the masses, including his partner (Matt Bomer), brother (Alfred Molina), and friends. "The Normal Heart" looks to be a heartbreaking story about a period in our history that was shrouded in chaos and doubt. The cast, which includes Taylor Kitsch, Julia Roberts and Jonathan Groff, should help. Read More: With No 'Normal Heart, »

Before There Was Snapchat: A Look Back At The Biggest Stars Of 1999

17 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

View Photo Gallery

1999 was a much simpler time. Brad and Jen. Julia and Ben(jamin Bratt). Teenage films starring actual teenagers topping the box office. Without the addition of reality television and internet celebrities, movie stars were the biggest names covering the pages of tabloids and MTV’s Trl was a must-hit stop for anyone wanting to make an impact on an audience under 30. Before the onslaught of reality star sex tapes and power couple portmanteau, Julia Roberts was just a girl, dating a Law and Order hunk and Nicole Kidman was still married to Tom Cruise. (Pause for laughs.)

Before the year 2000 high school flicks like American Pie proved just as valuable at the box office as boy bands and a new Latin wave were to album sales. Brad Pitt had split from Gwyneth Paltrow, who rebounded with Ben Affleck. And because this was prior to Goop or conscious uncoupling, »

‘Of Mice and Men’ Theater Review: James Franco, Chris O'Dowd Bring Vibrant and Poignant Life to Steinbeck Revival

16 April 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Yes, they can. Both of them. And that includes James Franco. When big stars make their Broadway debuts, especially those big stars who don't have much of a theater pedigree, the first question has to be: “So, can they act? On stage?” Since the disappointment of Julia Roberts’ Broadway debut (“Three Days of Rain,” 2006, preceded even more infamously by Madonna's 1988 debut, in “Speed-the-Plow”), movie stars have acquitted themselves quite well on old Broadway. Also read: James Franco Didn't Know He Has a Cameo in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ In the current “Of Mice and Men” revival, which opened Wednesday. »

Gone Girl Trailer Lands

15 April 2014 2:28 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Two pieces of David Fincher-related news arrived today, one to do with his current cinematic project, the other with one he has been attached to, or so we thought. We’ll kick things off with the new trailer for Gone Girl, which you can find below.Adapted from Gillian Flynn’s novel by the former journalist and author herself, Gone Girl finds Fincher firmly in dramatic thriller territory, with the story of how the outwardly perfect marriage between Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) has crumbled in the light of her disappearance. With Nick trying desperately to galvanise the locals of their small town in the search for his missing wife, the finger of suspicion begins to point towards him.This first trailer boasts the expected Fincher look and tone, even if the song choice makes us think it’s a dark sequel to Notting Hill with »

'Murphy Brown' creator Diane English looks back at the series finale: The art of saying goodbye

14 April 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

For a recent feature in Entertainment Weekly, we spoke to showrunners who’ve had the pleasure – and pressure — of wrapping up some of TV’s most beloved series. Murphy Brown creator Diane English had left the CBS comedy after season 4 but returned for its tenth and final season and penned its hour-long 1998 series finale. In the two-part “Never Can Say Goodbye,” Murphy (five-time Emmy winner Candice Bergen) — who’d battled breast cancer that year – contemplated retirement as she dealt with a second scare. While under anesthesia for a surgery that ultimately confirmed she was cancer-free, Murphy scored her biggest interview, »

What Films Will Show Up at the 2014 Cannes Film Festivalc

14 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This Thursday, April 17, the complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival line-up will be announced and while this will be my first year since 2010 that I won't be in attendance I still can't help but be curious and excited. We know Grace of Monaco will serve as the opener and have also learned in the last 48 hours Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice won't be in attendance, which eliminates two of the potentially major entrants, but what's leftc It's more or less confirmed David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars will be in the line-up. Other very likely candidates include Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman and The Rover starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce. I expect The Rover will be a Director's Fortnight entrant. Other strong competitors with a larger amount of audience awareness include Xavier Dolan's Mommy, »
