Annie's not the same old song and dance for Jamie Foxx

19 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The way Jamie Foxx sees it; it doesn’t matter whether he’s starring in a blood-soaked thriller or a kid-friendly flick. A promising movie, whatever the genre, is appealing both to audiences and to Foxx himself.

No surprise then that he just repeated his role as a murder consultant in the raunchy comedy Horrible Bosses 2, plays a kind-spirited tycoon in this month’s family friendly reimagining of Annie, and is slated to star in an upcoming bio-pic about complicated boxing legend Mike Tyson.

“The world now opens it up for you to play in all these different areas, these different arenas,” he says over the phone from San Francisco. In other words, having success in one category of film isn’t the sort of barrier to variety that it used to be. “Look at Robert Downey Jr., Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale. These guys are all super-powered actors. They »

Spotlight on the Stars: Christian Bale

17 December 2014 4:20 PM, PST | | See recent news »

For this week’s brand new spotlight piece (after taking a week off), I wanted to cite an A-lister who is known as one of the most deeply committed actors of his generation. Yes, it’s Christian Bale, an Academy Award winner who just overflows with talent. Once considered an incredibly snubbed actor who never quite captured Oscar’s attention, he’s since moved on to a much more respected part of his career, while also stepping effortlessly between blockbusters and independent fare. At this point, he’s almost a favorite of the voters and a multiple time nominee. As such, he’s someone I’d wanted to shine the spotlight on for some time, I’ve just been waiting for the right moment… Bale got started briefly as a teenager in television movies, but for most, the first real exposure to him came in Steven Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun, »

15-Year-Old Claire Danes On Getting Famous: 'I Just Want to Be a Sane Person'

17 December 2014 1:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While we're waiting for Homeland's fourth season to wrap, let's rewind to a simpler time, back when Claire Danes was a smiling teenager ... on rollerblades?

Yep, in this 1994 footage from the Et archives, a 15-year-old Danes is seen blading on the Venice Beach boardwalk and musing about newfound fame being just around the corner.

"It's a little frightening, but I don't want to be afraid of it," Danes said at the time.

Keep in mind that at this point in her career, the actress wasn't actually all that famous; she had spent just a few short weeks in the public eye as Angela Chase, the teen lead of My So-Called Life. (Before the ABC family drama from the producers of thirtysomething came along, her TV experience included little more than a Law & Order guest spot, pretty much a prerequisite for every actor.)

"I do feel a little powerless right now," she told Et »

The Six Biggest Celebrity Transformations of 2014

17 December 2014 9:05 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt's incredible jump to Hollywood's A-list with the massive success of Guardians of the Galaxy, to Ariana Grande's transition from Nickelodeon child star to one of music's biggest divas, check out the stars who made major moves in 2014.

Channing Tatum, Oscar-worthy performer:

Sony Pictures Classics

While Channing Tatum has continued to impress his critics with smart career choices following his Step Up beginnings, it wasn't until this year's Foxcatcher that critics began to take serious note of his acting abilities.

Critics initially signaled out an unrecognizable Steve Carell's performance in the psychological sports drama -- about an Olympic wrestler (Tatum) and his disturbed multi-millionaire sponsor (Carell) -- but Channing's intense performance has steadily been generating plenty of Oscar buzz.

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" - 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

17 December 2014 4:25 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca, Sneak Peek 'the good, the bad and the ugly' in director Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings":

Michael Stevens For 'The Good'

"No spoilers intended, but most of us already know how this story unfolds, with director Ridley Scott delivering action adventure along the lines of 'Gladiator', with epic 3D sequences involving horses, chariots and thousands of ancient warriors.

"The recreation of ancient Egypt through the efforts of hundreds of digital artists is visually impressive throughout the entire film, depicting David Lean-like arid deserts, the Egyptian city of 'Memphis', a series of horrific plagues, tidal waves and cosmic weather anomalies.

"Lemming-like criticism leveled at the film for using 'white' actors in main roles is unfounded, as actor Christian Bale delivers the goods (speaking English not Egyptian) in his depiction of 'Moses' aka 'Moishe', evolving »

Christian Bale Chases Love, Lust in New ‘Knight of Cups’ Trailer (watch)

16 December 2014 7:05 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Christian Bale rides into the valley of temptation–make that the San Fernando Valley–and confronts the excesses of Hollywood in a new trailer for Terence Malick’s film “Knight of Cups,” a study of temptation, love, lust, greed and possibly redemption. Malick couldn’t have picked a better backdrop to test the limits of human emotion, although like most of his projects, the movie’s plot is shrouded in mystery. The cast includes Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Brian Dennehy, and Ben Kingsley.

Batman Poster by Jp Valderrama - “Who Will You Be Tonight?”

16 December 2014 5:34 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In Jp Valderrama’s Batman franchise melding poster, Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne is asked by Alfred, “Who will you be tonight?” But the question isn’t whether he’ll be Batman or Bruce but, rather, which version of The Caped Crusader he’d like to be. The suits in front of him don’t just include the suit Bale wore in the last two films in The Dark Knight trilogy, but also suits worn by Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and George Clooney in other live action iterations of the character. Oddly enough, for Bale’s screen test for Batman Begins, he actually did wear Kilmer’s suit from Batman Forever. I've embedded that video below in case you haven't seen it already.

You can order 24" x 18" Giclee prints of this poster at Hero Complex Gallery. They are $40, and there were only a limited edition of 50 made. So »

Terrence Malick rides into Berlin film festival with Knight of Cups

Terrence Malick reaches settlement over unfinished film Voyage of Time

Having just announced that its world premiere will be at the Berlin film festival, Knight of Cups – the new film from Terrence Malick – has had a little flesh put on its bones in the form of its first trailer.

Other than its principal cast, the only previous detail of the film’s content was that it was about “celebrities and excess”. The trailer, in its elliptical way, expands on that, by showing Christian Bale – playing what is presumably a film maker of some kind – brooding moodily on the trappings of his success. His voiceover – typically breathy, in the now traditional Malick manner – has him announcing, »

Trailer For Terence Malick's Knight Of Cups

16 December 2014 4:03 AM, PST | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

One of the two films director Terence Malick shot back to back in 2012 (the other being an Ryan Gosling starring untitled project, once called Lawless) Knight of Cups will get it's debut next February at the Berlin Film Festival, and an absolutely beautiful, lyrical first trailer has debuted. Little is known about the films story, other than it seems to be exploring excess and fame through the experiences of Christian Bale's Rick, but the movie looks stunning thanks to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, Children of Men, and Malick's own Tree of Life and To The Wonder). Mix that with a stellar cast, including Bale, Antonio Banderas, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, and Cate Blanchett, and this is one movie to definitely keep an eye on. Knight of Cups is set for release sometime next year. »
