Josh Hartnett and Ben Affleck have more in common than Kate Beckinsale: One of the actors is Batman and the other...was almost Batman. In an interview with Playboy, posted on Thursday, Hartnett says Christopher Nolan talked to him about the part and that he "decided it wasn't for me." The actor, who had in the past mentioned that he was in talks about playing Batman, expresses regret that he didn't accept the role. The director has not commented. The role went to Christian Bale, who played the caped crusader in Nolan's hit Dark Knight trilogy. Affleck makes his debut as Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming film Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of »
The entire Beckham family was on hand for Burberry's London in Los Angeles event at the Griffith Observatory on Thursday night. Even though there was lots of spectacular fashion to behold - including a runway show that featured Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, and The Late Late Show host James Corden - the Beckhams easily grabbed all the attention with their presence at the party. The crew was decked out in designs from the iconic British brand as they sat front row for the festivities; Victoria kept her arm around middle son Romeo while David held little Harper in his lap next to Vogue editor Anna Wintour - how adorable is her tiny Burberry trench dress? Brooklyn, 16, who has become a bit of a star in his own right, took the opportunity to snap photos with some of the party's high-profile guests for his Instagram fans. He posed with Ryan Seacrest, »
Motherhood looks good on Mila Kunis! The "Jupiter Ascending" star has bounced right back since welcoming baby Wyatt late last year, and she put her hot post-baby bod on display at the Burberry "London in Los Angeles" event at the Griffith Observatory on Thursday night. Sporting slim blue pants and a white silk button-down, the actress flaunted her tiny waist as she posed for pictures at the star-studded soiree. She completed her ensemble with nude pumps, a side-swept 'do and a bronze smokey eye. Ashton Kutcher's other half recently joked about about her post-baby weight loss while chatting with Craig Ferguson. "Breastfeeding's a great workout! Let me tell you!" the brunette beauty explained. "I seem to eat a lot, so that kind of keeps me going through the day. [It's] not too bad. I do love to eat healthy." Kunis wasn't the only celeb to show their support for the famed fashion house last night. »

“Before I Wake” will arise on Sept. 25, 2015, after Relativity Studios has opted to move the horror film out of its early summer release date.
It was originally slated to premiere on May 8, a date on which it would have faced competition from “Hot Pursuit,” a buddy comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, as well as the second week of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Relativity is moving the picture because it believes that horror and thriller films tend to perform well in the fall, according to a source close to the studio. It also has a busy summer, »

A contemplative film pondering the nature of the difference between reality and fiction, one with resonance beyond the true-crime story it’s kinda sorta about. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Michael Winterbottom’s movies
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Let’s be perfectly clear: The Face of an Angel is most definitely not the story of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, who was killed in Perugia, Italy, in 2007, or the story of her roommate, American student Amanda Knox, who was tried and convicted of the crime along with her then boyfriend. (And then they were acquitted on appeal.)
Well, it is that story. But it isn’t, either. It’s both and neither at the same time.

The model-turned-actress stars in Winterbottom's The Face of an Angel, a drama closely inspired by the events surrounding the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in 2007.
Speaking to The Guardian's G2 supplement, the director revealed that he hadn't heard of Delevingne before he met her.
"I didn't really know who she was, but as soon as I met her I knew she'd be perfect for [the role]," he said.
"The film is pretty much entirely scripted so she is acting, but it's a quality of hers which she's projecting.
"I think she's like Julie Christie in that way: not an actor in the traditional sense but with a fantastic ability to project things on-screen," he complimented.
Closely inspired by the events surrounding the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in 2007 and the media circus that ensued, The Face of an Angel embarks on a noble quest to remind us that at the core of this garish spectacle is a victim who lost her life. Unfortunately, given the fascinating subject matter, the aims of Michael Winterbottom's film are one of its few commendable aspects.
The key themes are well introduced early on, particularly amid the discussions between journalists covering the trial of a 'Foxy Knoxy' type murder suspect. Parts of the media are increasingly obsessed with reporting on the details of her hair and clothing choices rather than events pertaining to the murder, thus creating a sad parallel with the real events that transpired. As Daniel Brühl's filmmaker Thomas points out, »
In an excerpt from this week's Guardian Film Show Henry Barnes, Peter Bradshaw and Benjamin Lee review Daniel Brühl as a desperate director on the hunt for a film in Michael Winterbottom's take on the press frenzy around the Meredith Kercher murder trail.

Michael Winterbottom and the star of his film inspired by the murder of Meredith Kercher discuss the challenge of tackling such an emotive case – and what it taught them about the media today
There’s an early scene in The Face of an Angel where Kate Beckinsale and Daniel Brühl swig espresso in a scenic Roman square. As a troupe of street performers seem to levitate behind them, the pair discuss their plan to observe a murder trial in Siena. “If you’re going to make the film, make it a fiction,” Beckinsale’s seasoned journalist Simone tells Thomas, the dissolute director played by Brühl. “You can’t tell the truth unless you make it a fiction.” Brühl furrows his brows and concurs.

★★★☆☆ Michael Winterbottom's latest feature, The Face of an Angel (2014), explores the intersection of beauty, youth, sex and violent crime. Inspired by Amanda Knox's alleged murder of British student Meredith Kercher in Italy, Winterbottom offers a perceptive, but at times plodding, take on the media's sensationalised coverage of her trial. Thomas Lang (Daniel Bruhl) arrives in Italy to research and write his next film. He meets Simone Ford (Kate Beckinsale), a journalist who been following the trial of American student Jessica Fuller, imprisoned for the murder of her flatmate Elizabeth Pryce (Sai Bennett). Thomas hopes to adapt Simone's book on the case. "Make it fiction," she urges him.

Madrid – Brit actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen (NBC’s “Dracula,” “World Without End”) will star in “The Healer,” a feel-good drama marking Spanish director Paco Arango’s follow-up to his standout 2011 debut “Maktub” that will be produced by Enrique Posner (“Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” “Pan’s Labyrinth,” ”Justin and the Knights of Valor”).
Based on what Posner describes as a “highly personal original script,” “The Healer” is in itself a highly singular and inspiring project, yoking Arango’s love of filmmaking and his continuing life battle to help children fight cancer: A large portion of the proceeds from “The Healer” will be destined to help Paul Newman’s camps for seriously ill children (https://www.seriousfunnetwork.org/), where Arango is a board member.
Written by Arango, and set to roll June 6 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, “The Healer” is produced by Arango and Posner, using Arango’s Calcon shingle, and by »

But James, who reprises his role as Four in this month's Insurgent, told Digital Spy that he is now unlikely to return for the sequel.
"No, they have something in the works, but my involvement in it is... I think it's going be very difficult to do that with these [Divergent] movies, and my other commitments," James said.
Kate Beckinsale, who has played Selena in all four of the Underworld movies to date, is also expected to be absent from the fifth instalment, although writer-producer Len Wiseman recently hinted otherwise.
James will begin shooting the final Divergent sequel, Allegiant, this summer, while his upcoming films in 2015 include crime thriller London Fields with Johnny Depp, and drama The Secret Scripture with Rooney Mara. »
