With Oscar season in full swing, the race is on for Oscar hopefuls. U.S. distributors help push their films and actors involved toward Oscar nominations, and some acquisition titles managed to find distributors in Telluride and Toronto. Ethan Hawke’s Seymour: An Introduction was sold to Sundance Selects at Telluride. Toronto continued to be a hotspot for acquisition titles looking to secure deals. Some films that inked deals include Chris Rock’s Top Five (Paramount), Chris EvansBefore We Go (RADiUS), Still Alice (Sony Pictures Classics) and Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young (A24); there are still a number waiting in the wings, though. Here are five actors who could possibly score an Oscar nomination if their films are picked up by distributors:

Octavia Spencer and Kevin Costner (Black and White)

Lambasted Elba and Henson Thriller Going Unpunished to Top Domestic Box Office Chart

14 September 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

No Good Deed’ movie going unpunished to top weekend box office? (photo: Idris Elba in ‘No Good Deed’) Apologies for the bad wordplay above, but if Friday estimates are a reliable indicator, No Good Deed should indeed go unpunished to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, September 12-14, 2014. But why "unpunished"? Well, so far the Sam Miller-directed thriller starring four-time Emmy nominee Idris Elba (Luther) and Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has a downright putrid 10% score and 2.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes‘ top critics. Sony Pictures, whose subsidiary ScreenGems is distributing No Good Deed, reportedly opted to skip late Thursday screenings to ensure that the film’s plot twist would be kept under wraps. More likely, however, it was the critics’ derisive remarks that Sony wanted under wraps. For instance: "The final plot twist is about as »

David Fincher and James Ellroy Are Teaming Up for a 1950s Crime Series

9 September 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  David Fincher is a busy man. He’s developing a stateside adaptation of the Channel 4 drama Utopia with Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn for HBO. And he’s had a slew of other projects in holding, including the serial-killer series Mind Hunter with Charlize Theron -- also for the same cable network. And if that weren’t enough, the director is now looking to add a classic crime noir to his full plate.   The Playlist reports that Fincher and author James Ellroy are in talks with HBO for a series set in Los Angeles “in a similar 1950s milieu (like Ellroy’s L.A. Confidential).” The two creators have a history. Fincher almost adapted Ellroy’s novel The Black Dahlia into a five-hour, $80-million miniseries with Tom Cruise...

Will Tiff hit 'Men, Women and Children' bring Jason Reitman back to Oscars?

8 September 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jason Reitman has brought all six of his films to the Toronto film festival. The first, "Thank You For Smoking," put him on Hollywood's radar while the next two -- "Juno" and "Up in the Air" -- reaped multiple Oscar bids, including for Reitman. However, his most recent pair, "Young Adult" and "Labor Day," which showcased Oscar champs Charlize Theron and Kate Winslet respectively, underperformed.  He returns to form this year with "Men, Women and Children," an exceptionally strong ensemble film that explores the ways and means by which social media isolates us all. Reitman co-adapted Chad Kultgen's 2011 bestseller with Erin Cressida Wilson ("Secretary"). They have fashioned a story which gives equal play to both the fortysomething parents and the teenagers as they struggle to connect with each other.  -Break- Reitman takes his time to lay out the storylines: a coupl »

Charlize Theron Doesn't Miss Her 20-Year-Old "Fat, Plump Face": "I've Loved Getting Older"

4 September 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Does Charlize Theron hate aging in Hollywood? Hell no! "I've loved getting older; I really have," the 39-year-old Oscar winner admits to Red magazine. "That doesn't mean I don't have moments when I look in the mirror and find myself going, 'Oh my god,' but I'm much more at ease looking at myself now than when I was 20 and I had gorgeous skin and a fat, plump face. I looked at myself then and I didn't appreciate any of it. Also, there was something about my beauty at that time that almost felt like it was waiting to be this age. I was so desperate to, like, have some kind of experience in my life, like not feeling that I came from the world of modeling. It was like I was waiting to look »

Oscars news: Is Julianne Moore ('Maps to the Stars') in or out as Best Actress?

2 September 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

 Sasha Stone takes a look at the Best Actress race in the context of the potential absence of Cannes champ Julianne Moore ("Maps to the Stars"). "I personally think the role and her overdue status give her the stuff to drive it home to a win (think: Charlize Theron in 'Monster'). I also think it’s premature to assume the Oscar voters are too soft to handle a movie like this. Most of them came of age during Ken Russell and Robert Altman, for chrissakes." Awards Daily -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube Host John Horn sits down with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu to talk about "Birdman." Among the tasty tidbits, this on casting Michael Keaton: "I always have considered Michael Keaton to be a phenomenal actor because he navigates drama and comedy.

Charlize Theron Rips Beauty Industry for Focusing on 20-Year Olds, Women Over 40 Ignored

28 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Charlize Theron is not too happy with the fashion and beauty industry for focusing on 20-somethig young women's beauty needs, while ignoring women over 40. Charlize thinks women only ''come into their prime'' in their 40s and wants to know why the beauty industry can't understand their needs, too. The 39-year-old 'Prometheus' star, who is dating Sean Penn, 54, says 20-year-olds ''have no f**king concept'' about life and believes the beauty industry should focus on older women. She told Women's Wear Daily (Wwd) magazine: ''It's ironic that we've built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f***ing concept about wisdom, what life is about, having a few relationships below [their] belt and feeling hardships, to grow into [their] skin and feel confident within [themselves] and to feel the value of who [they] are, not because of a man or because of something like that. ''And I think that's such a beautiful thing. »

Rocco Ritchie, Madonna’s son, dressed up like her ex-husband Sean Penn’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High character in an Instagram picture.

Rocco Ritchie Channels Sean Penn

Ritchie’s Jeff Spicoli costume included a Hawaiian shirt tied up around his waste to make it into a crop top. Though Ritchie’s hair isn’t quite as long as Penn’s was in the 1982 movie, he wore his blond locks similarly tussled for the homage to the actor.

“Jeff Spicoli is alive and well in the South of France! #boom #fuzzy,” Madonna captioned the picture of her 14-year-old son with director Guy Ritchie.

Madonna, who divorced from Penn in 1989 after 4 years of marriage, posted the snap as a tribute on Penn’s 54 birthday.

In the years since their split, Madonna and Penn have maintained a friendly relationship. Earlier this year, Penn brought his »

The Devil's Advocate is being adapted as a television series at NBC

19 August 2014 7:46 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I don't know about you, but I loved The Devil's Advocate. Despite Keanu Reeves awful accent, Taylor Hackford's horror/legal thriller gave us one of the last great performances from Al Pacino who chews each scene as the perfect big screen Satan. Plus, we got a sexy Charlize Theron and a buck naked Connie Nielsen in one of the most awkward sex scenes in movie history. Well, it looks like we may get a new take on The Devil's Advocate as ER creator John Wells has a pilot commitment from NBC. »

NBC To Develop Legal Drama Based On The Devil’s Advocate

18 August 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a sneering, scenery-chewing Al Pacino and a breakout turn from Charlize Theron, The Devil’s Advocate remains a popular watch on cable. However, that successful film could have a more permanent place in the minds of TV watchers, as NBC is now developing a drama series based on the legal thriller from 1997. Arnold Kopelson (producer of the film) and The West Wing‘s John Wells are in talks to produce the series.

Like the film, The Devil’s Advocate series will focus on a rising lawyer who joins a firm run by Satan. Keanu Reeves played the public defender in Taylor Hackford’s film, while Al Pacino got to play the Devil, spouting juicy one liners about how vanity was definitely his favorite sin. The network already has a pilot ready to be filmed, written by Matt Venne (A&E’s Bag of Bones), but there is no guarantee NBC will pick it up, »

Continuing the fine tradition of TV shows becoming the new remake/prequel/sequel/premake/etc., a new version is on its way of the 1997 flick The Devil's Advocate, which starred Al Pacino chewing more scenery than any one person should be allowed to.

According to Deadline, producers John Wells and Arnold Kopelson are bringing "The Devil’s Advocate" to television as a potential series. The legal drama with a supernatural twist, from Warner Bros. TV, has landed at NBC with a pilot commitment.

Written by Matt Venne (Bag of Bones, The Exorcism of Molly Harley), the series centers on a public defender who joins a law firm that is run by the Devil himself. In the film version the young lawyer was played by Keanu Reeves with Pacino playing his boss and Charlize Theron co-starring. The film, based on Andrew Neiderman »
