13 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Oscar statuettes have been far from the only stunners dripping in gold.

While stars like Mila Kunis and Jennifer Lawrence put their names on the fashion map with their stunning lilac and red dresses in 2011, over the years, it's been shades of yellow that have dominated the Oscars red carpet.

While white dresses made a major mark on the red carpet last year, Alicia Vikander made sure everyone knew she was a fashion force to be reckoned with when she turned up at last year's awards show in a custom-made strapless Louis Vuitton number that made her look like a real-life princess -- Belle, specifically -- even she saw the uncanny resemblance.

"That was my thought!" she told Et on the red carpet, after being told she was inspiring comparisons already.

CIA Thriller Need To Know Bound For The Big Screen With Charlize Theron Attached

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Karen Cleveland’s upcoming CIA-centric novel, Need to Know, is yet to hit store shelves and already, Universal has swooped to acquire rights for an adaptation.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Max Mad: Fury Road alum Charlize Theron has signed on to produce and headline the pic as a talented CIA analyst. Juggling her time at the agency with life at home, Theron’s wife and mother then stumbles upon a “shocking discovery” while combing through CIA files in the hope of unmasking a Russian sleeper cell in the U.S. – a discovery that in turn threatens her job, her family and her life. Corruption? A web of conspiracy that stretches all the way to the top, perhaps?

Whatever the outcome of Cleveland’s soon-to-be-published novel, Need to Know presents Theron with plenty of dramatic material to sink her teeth into, as the former Mad Max star looks to »

Fate of the Furious Runtime Revealed, Is It Too Long?

20 February 2017 2:05 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It may be a little hard to believe, but the eighth movie in The Fast and the Furious franchise will be coming out in a little under two months. Somehow, Universal has turned a couple of movies about good looking people, fast cars and crime into one of the most successful and long-running franchises ever. The upcoming installment, The Fate of the Furious, is going to be a massive movie in more ways than one. Not only will it be big on action and spectacle, but the movie is reportedly going to be nearly three hours long.

IMDb recently updated The Fate of the Furious movie page and now has the movie listed with a reported run time of 160 minutes. Yes, if this new information is true, Fast and Furious 8 is going to be by far the longest movie in the franchise and one of the more lengthy movies to be released in recent memory. »

The Fate of the Furious may have a 160-minute runtime

20 February 2017 12:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Between the countless absurd action sequences, fist-pumping one-liners and monologues about family, you’d think each Fast & Furious film had a lengthy runtime, but such is not the case — at least not yet. According to European movie site Cinemarx, the upcoming eighth entry in the beloved franchise, The Fate of the Furious, will be the longest film yet.

While, of course, the runtime won’t be official until Universal Pictures confirms it themselves, reportedly The Fate of the Furious will clock in at a giant 160 minutes (two hours 40 minutes).

Over time, the Fast & Furious movies have generally been getting longer, while still remaining at a reasonable length, with the first four films in the series all running in the 100-minute range and the three more recent movies in the 130-minute range. In fact, Furious 7 was the previous title holder of longest in the series, coming in at 137 minutes. Despite this trend, »

Clouds of Sils Maria star Chloë Grace Moretz premiered her latest project, Brain on Fire, at Toronto International Film Festival last year and ahead of a Netflix release, the first trailer has landed.

As one can see in the trailer, her condition worsens over the course of weeks and she quickly goes from violence to catatonia. It’s not until having numerous misdiagnoses and a hospitalization, when a doctor finally gives her a diagnosis with the hope she can rebuild her life. Also starring Jenny Slate, Thomas Mann, Tyler Perry, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Richard Armitage, check out the trailer below for the Charlize Theron-produced drama.

This year, however, there are some very serious contenders for the coveted statue, and with Finding Dory -- Pixar's biggest movie of 2016 -- surprisingly left off the list of nominees, just two of the nominated films are from the Mouse House.  Will the two nominated Disney features split votes causing an outlier to win the statue?

Helen Mirren’s Crucial Role In The Fate Of The Furious Has Finally Been Revealed

15 February 2017 2:39 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Charlize Theron isn’t the only Oscar-winning actress that the Toretto crew will have to contend with in The Fate of the Furious.

After expressing her surprisingly deep love for the series, Helen Mirren joined F. Gary Gray’s action sequel – formerly known as simply Fast 8 – in a mystery role last year and ever since, fans have been clamoring to find out exactly who she’ll be playing come April 14th. Well, wonder no more, as Yahoo! has confirmed that Mirren will portray the mother of Owen and Deckard Shaw, and is considered crucial in the plot.

Now that Vin Diesel’s musclebound Dominic Toretto has gone rogue, the remainder of Universal’s crew is forced to set aside old squabbles and partner with Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) if they’re to stand any chance of taking down Charlize Theron’s Cipher. That ought to ensure Mirren has plenty of »
