37 Movies That Share Their Name With A Michael Jackson Song

30 January 2015 4:23 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

You wouldn't know it from the film's lack of marketing, but a new movie called Black or White debuted in theaters today. Despite the presence of stars Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer, I've never seen a trailer or TV spot for the movie, which BoxOfficeMojo says is in over 1,000 theaters right now. (Apparently the film played at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and didn't receive very favorable reviews.) I don't ever plan on watching this film, but that doesn't mean that I can't come up with a tangentially-related article about it. Black or White got me thinking: what other movies share a title with a Michael Jackson song?

As far as ground rules go, there's really only one major one: the title of the movie and the song have to match exactly - if a word is possessive, I'm not making an exception. Exact matches or Gtfo. I'll embed »

After Two Marriages, Sean Penn Says Charlize Theron Would Be First That Matters

29 January 2015 9:59 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The notoriously private Sean Penn is now gushing about his relationship with Oscar winner Charlize Theron.

In a new interview with Esquire UK, the Milk actor says he's "in love" with Theron, and would consider their marriage his "first" despite having been previously married to both Madonna and House of Cards actress Robin Wright. Penn, 54, and Theron, 39, first stepped out together in December 2013, and reportedly got engaged this past November.

"Yeah, I'm surprised to be in love," Sean tells the men's magazine. "Lot of reasons. I’m self-proclaimed bad at mathematics but I can do two plus two: 53 years old plus finally beginning to figure out why you haven’t been happy in a single relationship? It could seem too late. But to run into somebody now who you care about is a much more passionate, deeper, truer and -- God! -- a much happier feeling. It's a lot more romantic and a lot more fulfilling to be in »

Third time's a... first? Though married and divorced twice before, Sean Penn told Esquire UK in its March 2015 cover story that he'd consider his future marriage to fiancee Charlize Theron to be his first. "I’ve had relationships that were not with famous people, or people aspiring to be famous," the two-time Oscar winner reflected of his 35-plus years in Hollywood. "And in some cases they went more poorly! But as it turned out, yes, the two marriages I had were with high-profile people, in their own [...] »

Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel to Bring Back Only Two Dwarves

29 January 2015 1:14 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Universal Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to its "Snow White and the Huntsman," which grossed almost $400 million worldwide back in 2012. The new movie is called "The Huntsman" and will focus on the title character, played by Chris Hemsworth (Thor). We already know that Kristen Stewart won't return as the Snow White and now comes word that the film will bring back only two dwarves. According to Deadline, Eddie Marsan ("Ray Donovan") is too busy, while Nick Frost and Toby Jones never agreed to return for a second installment. It has yet to be revealed which two dwarves will make an appearance. "The Huntsman" will co-star Charlize Theron as evil queen Ravenna, and possibly Emily Blunt as a villain. It will be directed by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who earned an Oscar nomination in the visual effects category for his work on the first film. The new movie is set to hit theaters on April 22nd, »

28 January 2015 6:31 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sean Penn has been married twice—but it turns out he doesn't quite see it that way. Asked about the possibility of tying the knot for a third time, particularly with his reported fiancée Charlize Theron, the two-time Oscar winner says in the March 2015 issue of Esquire UK, "You say I've been married twice before but I've been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today, so I wouldn't even consider a third marriage, I'd consider it a first marriage on its own terms if I got married again. I mean, I like the tradition." Penn was married to Madonna from 1985 until 1989, and then he and Robin Wright divorced in 2010 after about 14 years of »

Penn Is Latest Hollywood Celeb to Take Home French Academy's Honor

28 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »

'The Huntsman' Sequel Is Axing Some Dwarves

28 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman" already won't feature Kristen Stewart's Snow White. Now, Deadline reports, most of her seven dwarves are getting axed, too. Only two dwarves will be in the "The Huntsman," though it's unclear exactly which two.

It is known that Nick Frost ("Cuban Fury"), Toby Jones ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier") and Eddie Marsan ("Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows") will definitely not be in the movie. Marsan has a scheduling conflict with his work on Showtime's "Ray Donovan." And Bob Hoskins died last year, so he won't be part of the project either.

"The Huntsman" is a prequel that will show the titular character (Chris Hemsworth) and Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) crossing paths before the events of the first movie. Emily Blunt is on board to play a villain, reportedly a Snow Queen who is Ravenna's sister.

The Huntsman Will Be Heavy On The Hemsworth, But Light On The Dwarves

28 January 2015 4:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, watching the development of The Huntsman has become something of a sport. The sequel to 2012’s phenomenally successful Snow White And The Huntsman is now a case-study in what can be achieved when Universal has the commitment of two stars, a confirmed release date, and then just holds on tight.

When the first film opened to great fanfare and financial success, the idea of a sequel was immediately and predictably bandied about. The main cast – Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron – was on board and happy to return. Then came a wave of high profile controversy surrounding Stewart and the film’s director, Rupert Sanders – which led to both of them stepping away from the project. But, with Hemsworth and Theron still attached, a release date was set for April 22nd 2016, and attentions turned to the development of a screenplay, without Snow White in it.

Fewer Dwarves In The "Huntsman" Prequel

28 January 2015 3:52 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Kristen Stewart's Snow White won't be the only person not returning for Universal's upcoming prequel follow-up about Chris Hemsworth's The Huntsman character.

Deadline reports that only two of the seven dwarves from the first film will be back, though which dwarves they are is still unclear. Three of them though - actors Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Eddie Marsan - are Not going to return.

Marsan has scheduling conflicts with his role on "Ray Donovan," a reason actor Ian McShane may also skip out on the job. The other two have apparently turned down deals to return.

Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt are also expected to be onboard the Cedric Nicolas-Troyan directed film which opens next April. »
