Brad Pitt Facts: 35 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Fury' Star

17 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Since breaking out over 20 years ago in "Thelma & Louise," Brad Pitt has been difficult to miss.

After landing his place in cinematic history as a hunky (and shirtless) criminal, Pitt's career blossomed with starring roles in critical and box office hits alike, such as "A River Runs Through It" (1992), "Seven" (1995), and "12 Monkeys" (1995) -- just to name a few. In the past two decades, Pitt has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but his role has expanded beyond just acting. In only the past few years, he's produced two Best Picture nominated films, "Moneyball" (2011) and "12 Years a Slave" (2013). This fall, he's back in front of the camera leading his battle-hardened platoon into Nazi Germany in "Fury."

From his early days in Missouri to his unlikely romances, here are 35 things you probably don't know about Brad Pitt.

1. Brad Pitt was born December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, Oklahoma to Jane Hillhouse and William Pitt.

2. His mother was a school counselor, »

'Pulp Fiction' spawn: The best and worst of the Tarantino clones that followed

14 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

Archer to Re-Reboot and 25 Spoilers for Season 6

11 October 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

After breaking away from the original concept to explore a world of drug cartels and ‘80s references in season five, FX’s Archer returns to the spy game when the show comes back in January. During a panel at New York Comic Con, it became evidently clear that Vice is very much in the past — though the departure did earn the series its first Best Animated Series Emmy nomination — when FX screened the first episode. The cast also shared some spoilers that made us antsy for the return of the series.

1. No more Isis — for obvious news-related reasons

2. Cyril Figgis wants a role in the parenting of Abigene

3. The lack of cocaine means the return of Pam’s full figure

4. A reference to Brett Bunsen in the first episode (Rip, Brett)

5. Milton the toaster

6. Christian Slater returns as Slater and he will cause problems for Archer (He’s very well drawn, »

From Under the Radar to Potential Oscar Contention

7 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The conversation surrounding potential supporting actress nominees includes some names familiar to the Oscar race, such as Meryl Streep (Into the Woods), and some that could be nominated for the first time, such as Emma Stone (Birdman). The list of potential contenders also includes Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Rene Russo (Nightcrawler), two ladies that have flown under the radar since the 90s but could mark their return with first-time Oscar nominations.

Arquette’s role as the mother in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, a film that chronicles 12 years in a young boy’s (played by Ellar Coltrane) life as he grows up in a divorced household, has been generating Oscar buzz since the film premiered at Sundance. Arquette was involved in a few projects during those 12 years of filming, which was possible due to the sporadic nature of shooting, only three to four days a year. »

'Nymphomaniac' Director's Cut Now on VOD (Nsfw Video)

2 October 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Lars von Trier's wildly unrestrained psychosexual opus is the gift that keeps on giving. While the original bifurcated -- though hardly coy -- Volumes I and II are already streaming on Netflix, the great Dane's five-and-a-half-hour director's cut of this controversial epic starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as the title sex addict is now available on paid VOD platforms including iTunes and Amazon. Von Trier's definitive version, which most recently screened at Fantastic Fest, digs deeper into the lusty Joe's (played by Gainsbourg in adulthood and Stacy Martin as a young woman) Freudian beginnings, including her too-close relationship with her father (Christian Slater). And there is of course lots more explicit sex and talk of fly-fishing with Stellan Skarsgard as the man who rescues Joe from herself. (The very, very Nsfw clips below serve up just a taste of the action.) Now vying for European Film Awards, "Nymphomaniac" divided critics throughout its festival run and. »

Movie Stars Who Bombed on the Small Screen

23 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

With movie ticket sales declining, quality television has taken its place as the cool kids table in the cafeteria. The hottest, most feted actors in all of celebdom are clamoring to get cast on the small screen — and it’s not just TV actors. Movie stars want in on the compelling scripts and genius ensemble casts, too. And it’s a win-win for television execs (who wouldn’t want the instant recognizability and built-in audience that a big screen star would bring to their series?). The only issue? For every Alec Baldwin, Zooey Deschanel, or Matthew McConaughey, you have a Christina Ricci, Christian Slater, or Ashley Judd — all of whom starred on series (or multiple series) that bombed spectacularly.

From Whoopi Goldberg‘s groan-tastic 2003 sitcom to Dustin Hoffman‘s PETA-protested HBO series, Luck, let’s take stroll through television’s Land of Failed Movie Star Vehicles, shall we? »

No Holds Barred Nymphomaniac Director’s Cut Is Five Hours Long, Out In October

16 September 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More often than not, when a studio releases a director’s cut of a film, it’s met with positive feedback from the audience. A chance to peek behind the curtain to see the filmmaker’s vision in its pure, untainted form. For Nymphomaniac, though — Lars Von Trier’s unflinching opus about the life of a sex addict — things might be a little, well, different.

Nevertheless, the renown Danish director is set to release his own five-and-a-half-hour-long director’s cut of the film — which was originally split into two volumes in every territory bar Denmark — alongside Nymphomaniac’s upcoming VOD release on October 2nd.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Von Trier is also planning to screen the uncut version “at special festival events across North America, as well as in several European countries including Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic and in Trier’s native Denmark.”

5 And A Half Hour Director’s Cut Of Lars Von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’ Set For October U.S. Release

16 September 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I haven’t had the ‘pleasure’ of watching either of director Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac as yet, but I did manage to catch most of the clips leading up to release. None shocked me more than the 23-second ‘director’s cut’ teaser that debuted just over a couple of weeks ago. I’m not easily shocked, and truly believe that I’m quite liberal, but this is very, very hard stuff. It really does not get much more Nc-17 than this, a rating I’m sure that it will receive upon release, which we’re told will be in October. The release will be both in cinemas, and VOD, and will also expand to Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic and Denmark. Notice the exclusion of the UK in that list. I really don’t know how they’re going to get around the, let’s face it, pornographic content over here. »

Raw Footage From "Nymphomaniac"

9 September 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more Nsfw footage from the two-part dramatic feature film "Nymphomaniac", starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Uma Thurman, Mia Goth, Shia Labeouf, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater and Connie Nielsen:

"...'Joe' (Gainsbourg), who is a self-diagnosed 'nymphomaniac' sex addict, is found by 'Seligman' (Skarsgård) beaten in an alley. 

"Seligman takes her home to care for her, and Joe recounts the story of her life, from birth to the age of 50..."

"We are making two films", said the movie's producer.

"It is a big operation...We will shoot both and edit both – and we want to finish both at the same time."

There will also be two versions of each film: an 'explicit' cut and a 'softer' cut.

"The movie is what you think it is," said former "Transformers" star Labeouf.

"For instance, there's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real. »

With Shocking Abortion Scene Restored, ‘Nymphomaniac’ Makes Venice Fest Most Daring

9 September 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If the 2014 festival circuit were a contest — and why shouldn’t it be, since these lofty-minded sprocket operas pit the directors whose work they screen in competition against one another? — then the Venice film festival emerges the winner. That will come as sacrilege to some, who consider Cannes the undisputed titan among international film showcases. And it may baffle the Oscar-obsessed, who look to Telluride and Toronto for indications of what will win Academy Awards.

This year, the litmus test came down to which fest would land the director’s cut of Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac.” And Venice scored the coup, programming the 5-hour-and-25-minute atom bomb of a movie amid a lineup that included stellar new films from Alejandro G. Inarritu (“Birdman”), Roy Andersson (“A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence”), Ramin Bahrani (“99 Homes”) and Larry Clark (whose “The Smell of Us” is like a French “Kids”).

In a Nutshell: Way Of The Wicked

7 September 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

"When the sons of the fallen came upon the daughters of men they bore the way of the wicked." An opening gambit that reads infinitely more interesting than the tagline for Kevin Carraway's latest low-budget horror movie. 'Evil Never Dies', anyone? Is that a fact? Well, as the filmmakers so eloquently put it, evil never dies but film careers do. Remember when Christian Slater was the epitome of cool? Now he's playing heroic priests in inexplicably dull horror movies. Remember when Vinnie Jones had the world at his feet? Ok, so that's a bit of a stretch, but Vinnie Jones stars alongside Slater in the straight-to-dvd feature that riffs on The Omen and Carrie. Here's a twist for you. Christian Slater plays a holier than thou priest and Vinnie Jones plays the part of a doting father. He's still a cop of course but the role of »

This teaser for the Nymphomaniac director's cut is way beyond Nsfw

5 September 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

By now, most of you on this site have heard of Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac. For a while, the film starring Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Shia Labeouf, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Christian Slater, and many others was set to be released in a hardcore and a softcore version. Instead, we got a two volume release that was chock full of sexual deviancy. Now, get ready for something much, much more explicit.

Nymphomaniac: Director’S Cut Teaser Breaks the Nsfw Barrier

4 September 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lars von Trier’s sexual epic Nymphomaniac was split into two parts upon its initial release (as Nymphomaniac: Volume I and Nymphomaniac: Volume II), it was also edited for content.  Though Von Trier gave his consent for that edit, he still held onto his plans to make a director’s cut of the film entitled Nymphomaniac: Director’s Cut.  And it looks like he’s prepping that cut for release, if this teaser is any indication.  Also, I need to tell you right now hat this teaser is Nsfw.  You may think you know Nsfw by now, but you don’t.  This kind of breaks both the Nsfw barrier and my own brain when it comes to the amount of sexual content that can be crammed into 20 seconds. Hit the jump to watch the teaser and click here to read Matt’s review of Volume I and here for his review of Volume II. »

‘Way of the Wicked’ Review

2 September 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Christian Slater, Vinnie Jones, Jake Croker, Emily Tennant, Aren Buchholz, Matthew Robert Kelly, Brittney Wilson, Jedidiah Goodacre, Jillian Fargey, Chris Shields, Anna Galvin, Sydney Waack, Ryan Grantham | Written by Matthew Robert Kelly | Directed by Kevin Carraway

Sometimes you see actors turn up in movies and you just know what to expect.  I find though that to be fair to the film I look to be pleasantly surprised, and sometimes I even am…but this tends to be rare.  Way of the Wicked stars Christian Slater and Vinnie Jones and for fans of bad movies I don’t really need to say much more than that do I?

When Robbie (Jake Croker) returns to the town where he was once implicated in the death of a classmate it’s not long before another student dies.  Detective John Elliot (Vinnie Jones) begins to suspect Robbie as being to blame, especially when »
