Randeep’s ‘chameleon traits’ shock Omung Kumar

11 hours ago | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Randeep Hooda, who had beefed up muscle to play a street fighter in Deepak Tijori’s Do Lafzon Ki Kahaani, had to shed 18 kg for Omung Kumar’s Sarabjit. And for this, the actor had to go on a near starvation diet which was supervised by his sister Dr Anjali Hooda Sangwan.

Talking about the brief given to Randeep, Omung Kumar says, “In his years in jail, Sarabjit was kept in a 4 x 4 room and had rat bites all over him. The first time I met Randeep, I told him that I wanted to see his bones. He took up the challenge and shocked everyone with the outcome.” The director adds that he wasn’t able to recognise Randeep on the first day of shoot and he largely went unnoticed. “It was only when I called for him that I realised he was sitting right there.”

'Justice League' Roles Are Small in 'Batman v Superman' Says Snyder

5 February 2016 4:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder spoke about why he prefers the DC Universe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during an appearance on the Hall of Justice podcast. The filmmaker also had plenty more to say during his appearance, offering new details about both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, which he starts filming this spring. First, the director essentially confirmed rumors that the rest of the Justice League, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will be featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, although he admitted that they have small roles.

"I really feel like this movie... I mean as far as the other Justice League characters go, it's very small roles. It's a whisper that they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her pretty well. But the movie is about Batman and Superman. »

Oscars 2016: What Is Going on With the Best Director Race?

5 February 2016 3:15 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Predicting the Oscar winners this year is a little like predicting the winners of the early presidential caucuses and primaries -- that's how wide open the field is in some categories, particularly Best Director.

In the Oscar race, we had two important guild votes this week, from the actors and the editors, and the results made the Academy's contest a bit more clear. Will the DGA's vote this weekend help make sense of things? Maybe, depending on who wins.

The Screen Actors Guild awards last Saturday did help confirm some of the acting races. SAG winner Leonardo DiCaprio still has a lock on a Best Actor Oscar for "The Revenant," and Brie Larson is still far and away the Best Actress frontrunner for "Room." Alicia Vikander's SAG win for Supporting Actress for "The Danish Girl" puts her ahead of the pack; at this point, her only real competition is »

Batman v Superman Soundtrack Release Details Revealed!

5 February 2016 10:02 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What an interesting situation Hans Zimmer was put in when he was asked to do the music for Batman v Superman. This was the guy who shaped the tone for The Dark Knight Trilogy (along with James Newton Howard for the first film), as well as Man Of Steel with his epic and fitting scores. However, with Batman v Superman he was facing a bit of a conundrum. Sure, since BvS takes place within the same universe as Man Of Steel, it makes sense that he'd come back to do the music. But what about Batman? This Batman is a very different one than what Nolan brought us with Christian Bale, and as such, how weird would it be that Zimmer would be responsible for bringing themes to two completely separate iterations of the same character?

Instead of doing that, Zimmer decided to bring on composer Junkie Xl to assist him with the film, »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

5 February 2016 6:19 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  The best actress race seems downright obvious compared to the wild, wild waters of best supporting actor, where Golden Globe winner Sylvester Stallone isn't a lock for the Oscar in the slightest. Stallone's biggest threat might be Tom Hardy, the up-and-coming icon who had his best year yet thanks to "Mad Max," "Legend" and "The Revenant." While these two seem like the ones to beat, it's important to not that Stallone missed out on the SAG nomination, leaving the door potentially open for Mark Rylance and Christian Bale. Below is Anne Thompson's take on how things might shake down in the race for best supporting actor. Check out Thompson on Hollywood's Oscar predictions page for more awards season analysis.

Oscar 2016 Hopefuls Have a Common Enemy: Father Time

4 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Time is on your side,” the Rolling Stones have long assured us, though the heavyweight roles nominated for 88th Academy Awards would sing a different tune. Time’s tendency to force or impede behavior had a significant impact on much of the year’s best acting.

Dramatically, you can’t go wrong by setting tight deadlines. In “The Big Short,” Michael Burry (Christian Bale) hurries to exploit mortgage bonds’ weaknesses before anyone else discovers them, and rushes to infer just the right moment to sell before the house of cards collapses.

In “Spotlight,” Mark Ruffalo plays reporter Mike Rezendes, who is always running against time. “There’s a sense of urgency to almost everything Mike does, as if there could never be enough time to get a source to talk, to get the documents, to write the story — it’s why he runs,” Ruffalo says.

George Miller Explains Why His Justice League Film Never Happened

4 February 2016 9:54 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It seems like overnight George Miller has become a huge sensation. This is a man who's been in the business for more years than I've been alive, but all the same, in the wake of his latest film, Mad Max: Fury Road, everyone is realizing what a talent the man is in Hollywood. All of a sudden, that canceled Justice League: Mortal film from back in 2007 is a huge deal.

Sure, we're getting Batman v Superman this year, and a Justice League film late next year, but there's something romantic and mysterious about a film that never was--especially when it could have been helmed by someone like George Miller.

We know that the world was a much different place back then. Comic book movies weren't really a sure thing by that point, and the idea of throwing these different superheroes together seemed like a huge risk. Heck, even as »

Golden Years: David Bowie’s essential movie performances

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie.  Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius.  The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar.  Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.

While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles.  While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.

Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

Los Angeles is getting the Terrence Malick treatment in the reclusive director's upcoming "Knight Of Cups," and Broad Green Pictures has dropped a couple more teasers in the run up to the film's release this spring.

“Spotlight” takes the top prize from SAG to stay alive in the Oscar race

1 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG, for those who don’t know) did their best provide both questions and answers in regards to the Oscar race. On the one hand, much of what we suspected to the the Academy’s likely favorites remains as such, but on the other…there are certainly some potential upsets brewing. SAG was just one of the precursors over the weekend, as the Art Directors Guild and Ace Eddie announced their winners as well, which you can see below, but the SAG victors are what we’ll be focusing on today. So, let’s chat about that guild’s results! SAG managed to both clear up and confuse on Saturday. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson wrapped up their Oscar wins in Lead Acting categories, while Alicia Vikander likely became an unbeatable frontrunner as well in Best Supporting Actress. As for Best Supporting Actor, »

The Big Short: should you seek your fortune in this film?

1 February 2016 4:27 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Filmgoers who try to pursue Michael Burry’s route to wealth, as portrayed in Adam McKay’s Oscars frontrunner, might end up morally and financially bankrupt

Are you as greedy, selfish and nasty as the financial wizards somehow portrayed as heroes in The Big Short? If so, now could be the time to emulate your role models.

Hey, Sylvester Stallone: Idris Elba winning SAG Award is good news for your Oscar odds

30 January 2016 8:24 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

When Idris Elba ("Beasts of No Nation") won the SAG Award for Best Supporting Actor on Saturday night, you could hear Sylvester Stallone's mumbled sigh of relief all across Hollywood. You see, the "Creed" star is the current Oscar frontrunner in this category, yet he was snubbed by the Screen Actors Guild. It would have been a worst-case scenario for Stallone if one of his Oscar rivals had won here as that would have given them much-needed awards momentum. That Mark Rylance ("Bridge of Spies") and Christian Bale ("The Big Short") both came up short at SAG is the best thing that could have happened for Stallone's Oscar chances. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions Although they led in our predictions, Rylance and Bale lost at SAG to Elba, whose shocking Oscar snub helped initiate the infamous #OscarsSoWhite hashtag.

Yes, Ryan Gosling Was at the SAG Awards This Whole Time

30 January 2016 8:05 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

You were likely watching the SAG Awards on Saturday night, minding your own business, when all of a sudden Ryan Gosling graced the screen! The actor, who was sitting pretty with his The Big Short costars, skipped the red carpet and didn't hit the stage to present an award, either - so imagine our surprise when he was spotted clapping, smirking, and posing with other A-listers like Christian Bale and Eddie Redmayne in the audience and backstage. He also linked up with his former Crazy, Stupid, Love cohorts Julianne Moore and Marisa Tomei. It goes without saying that Ryan's ex Rachel McAdams also happened to be in the house; she presented an award on stage and also joined her Spotlight castmates when they won the honor for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises

30 January 2016 7:16 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For most of the 22nd Annual SAG Awards, things went as expected, as when a luminous Viola Davis took home her second SAG Award in a year for “How To Get Away with Murder” and film frontrunners Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson landed top honors for “The Revenant” and “Room,” respectively. But the voters kept things interesting, with a  few notable curveballs — primarily in the TV categories.

Surprise: “Spotlight” Wins Ensemble

“No way,” Mark Ruffalo said while accepting for the cast of Tom McCarthy’s acclaimed movie. And while not a total shock — the top prize was clearly between “Spotlight” and “The Big Short” — the buzz on the latter has been deafening for the last few weeks, particularly after winning the PGA Award. Both feature large ensembles filled with a great mix of established actors and new faces, but in the end it was “Spotlight” who triumphed.
