Bloom targets Efm launch for 'Lost In London'

6 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

In an early Berlin title that is already generating interest at Sundance, Alex Walton and his team have boarded international sales on Woody Harrelson’s directorial debut ahead of Thursday night’s simultaneous shoot and broadcast.

Harrelson directs the experimental event, which will shoot in one take across multiple locations in central London and screens live in Salt Lake City and participating Us theatres in association with Fathom Events.

The Oscar-nominated star plays himself as he struggles to get home to family in London despite encounters with royalty, old friends and the authorities. It is understood the storyline is inspired by true events in London back in 2002 triggered by an argument between Harrelson and his wife.

Harrelson has been in rehearsals since December and the cast includes Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson.

CAA represents Us rights to the project, which Harrelson is producing alongside Waypoint Entertainment’s Ken Kao, Walton’s founding partner at Bloom. Harrelson will participate »

Oscar Host Jimmy Kimmel: I Hope Matt Damon Loses

18 January 2017 12:54 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jimmy Kimmel’s long-standing feud with Matt Damon has no end in sight — and the host just hopes that the actor will not score a win at this year’s Oscars. When asked whether Kimmel is happy he got the Oscars hosting gig over his nemesis, he responded, “Well, he claims he didn’t have time … It’s just another in a series of bad decisions he’s made. I think we are all hoping he doesn’t get nominated. And if he does get nominated — God forbid — I think we are all hoping he doesn’t win!” Damon was »

Ben Affleck On Sad Affleck Meme & What He Learned From Batman v Superman

18 January 2017 11:15 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Over the past decade or so, actor/writer/director Ben Affleck has done a great job at turning himself into Hollywood’s golden boy. Gone Baby Gone was a terrific directorial debut, and in The Town, he really upped his game with the hard-hitting crime aspects. Argo saw him reach a completely new level when the movie won Best Picture, cementing Affleck as a hot talent in Hollywood.

As such, when he joined the DC Extended Universe as Batman, not only did it give a lot of credibility to the project, but it seemed to imply that Warner Bros. was looking to have Affleck direct a standalone Batman film in the near future. Of course, we now know that to be absolutely true, as Affleck is on board to direct the next Batman film, and with that knowledge going into the filming of last year’s Batman v Superman, we »

How Thomas Tull’s Legendary Deal Ran Into a Great Wall

17 January 2017 2:57 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Legendary Entertainment founder and CEO Thomas Tull unexpectedly resigned on Tuesday, nearly a year to the day after China’s Dalian Wanda Group acquired the production company for $3.5 billion. But in those 12 months, the relationship between Tull and Wanda CEO Wang Jianlin, the wealthiest person in China, apparently hit a wall. A great one. Legendary’s long-hyped “The Great Wall,” a historical adventure epic starring Matt Damon and Andy Lau and directed by Zhang Yimou (helming his first English-language film), was intended to be China’s first true crossover hit. It stars A-listers from both sides of the Pacific with a plot that has Europeans. »

Ocean’s Eight adds Richard Armitage, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner to cameo

17 January 2017 2:42 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production underway and its female stars already cast, Ocean’s Eight has been spending the last few weeks rounding out the supporting cast with actors like Damian Lewis (Billions, Homeland) and James Corden (The Late Late Show, Into the Woods). Now, we have word on another cast addition, and a couple Kardashian cameos.

According to Deadline, The Hobbit trilogy and Hannibal actor Richard Armitage has signed on in a secretive role. There are literally no details as to who he’ll be playing, or how big of a role he’ll have.

In other news, E! has the scoop that both Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner will cameo in the film. The models/reality TV stars shot a scene set at the New York Met Gala. They’ll reportedly be joined by Vogue editor in chief and fashion icon Anna Wintour. Their’s won’t be the only cameos »

Richard Armitage Nicks Role In Ocean’s Eight

17 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The casting news continues to pour in for the Gary Ross-directed Ocean’s Eight, with Richard Armitage being the latest addition to the fold.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Armitage, who is perhaps best known for his roles across Alice Through the Looking Glass and Peter Jackson’s Hobbit franchise, will play a mystery character in next year’s female-led crime caper. How exactly the actor’s newcomer fits into proceedings is up for question, though given the stacked ensemble cast, we’re inclined to believe the Brit will hold a small supporting role opposite Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett and their merry band of crooks.

Those two leading ladies will anchor Ocean’s Eight as a pair of master criminals, presiding over an ensemble that includes Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. Their mission? Staging a heist that involves stealing an invaluable »

Newswire: Ocean’s 8 recruits Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner

17 January 2017 12:45 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Despite the recent additions of Matt Damon, James Corden, and Damian Lewis, Ocean’s 8 is still poised to be a female-led caper. While casting for cameos, the production team stumbled upon the perfect players for bit roles in the New York Fashion Week-centered story: Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. We say that because both Kardashian and Jenner are involved in the fashion industry, and because they should be able to play themselves with aplomb. TMZ reports the sisters were recently and ever so briefly on set, all dolled up and ready to stroll wordlessly past the actors. (Our header image is actually a photo of Kardashian and Jenner‘s performance.)

But, just as we were ready to welcome one or both of the Hadids to the heist, Deadline reports that another dude has made his way into the cast. The Hobbit trilogy’s Richard Armitage has signed on in ...

'The Warrior’s Gate': Film Review

17 January 2017 12:36 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The latest from Luc Besson’s B-action-adventure factory owes a debt of gratitude to Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall for casting a long, obfuscating shadow for it to hide beneath, chiefly due to its Matt Damon-based whitewashing controversy. Unlike that film, which for better or worse had a plot that hinged on a foreign traveler in China, director Matthias Hoene’s The Warrior’s Gate truly does pivot on a “scrawny” white gamer saving a princess and ensuring peace for the Chinese realm. The $50-million film is the first in EuropaCorp and Shanghai-based Fundamental Films' three-pic co-production deal and is the latest East-West »

It’s the closest thing to a Thor-meets-Jason Bourne team-up.

Pals Chris Hemsworth and Matt Damon were spotted getting together over the weekend in Los Angeles, where they grabbed dinner along with Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky.

The trio hit up local hot spot Catch for their mellow night out and kept things casual, with Hemsworth, 33, sporting a gray cardigan over a white tee while his wife, 40, rocked a green jacket over an all-black ensemble.

Damon, 46, meanwhile, stayed low-key in a beanie, black jacket and jeans. The group also stopped for a few to chat with fans outside.

The Week in Movies – what is going on with Ben Affleck and The Batman? Young Han Solo spin-off casts mentor role & more…

The Week in Movies discusses the last seven days in cinema, including what is going on with Ben Affleck and The Batman? The Young Han Solo spin-off movie casts its mentor and more…

The Week in Movies is an excerpt from the weekly Flickering Myth Super Newsletter. Subscribe here to get it delivered to your inbox every Sunday.

Warner Bros vs Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck made his name with a combination of geeky-level indy movies, starring in Chasing Amy and Mallrats for his friend Kevin Smith, and Academy-beloved dramas, the Oscar-winning Good Will Hunting and Shakespeare in Love.

Matt Damon had hair back then.

Then he starred in a badly-received superhero movie dogged by an interfering studio (Daredevil – 44% on Rotten Tomatoes) and a critically-panned crime film (Gigli – 6%), released around the same time he publicly split with his celebrity fiancée (Jennifer Lopez).

Who saw that coming?

That was 2003, and Affleck’s »

Chris Hemsworth and Matt Damon's Double Date Just Put All of Our Weekend Plans to Shame

15 January 2017 10:49 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

As if Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky weren't already cute enough, the couple is also close friends with Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso. On Saturday, the foursome stepped out for a fun night on the town at Catch restaurant in La. Chris and Elsa held hands as they made their way out of the building, while Luciana and Matt followed close behind. In case you weren't aware, Matt and Chris have been friends for years. In an interview with GQ back in 2014, the Thor star opened up about their friendship, saying, "We became friends around the time I started to work, and I've really benefited from watching how he handles himself. Matt's just a normal guy who has the movie-star thing figured out." With award season in full swing, perhaps we'll see more of the foursome in the coming weeks.

Film Review: Boston is Strong Again in Reliable ‘Patriots Day’

13 January 2017 12:51 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – In the context of history, and the way information is consumed these days, the Boston Marathon Bombing in 2013 seems both like yesterday and a long time ago. Director Peter Berg’s “Patriots Day” is the first film account of that horrid week, and features Mark Wahlberg.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Wahlberg, along with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, are the unofficial show biz mayors of Boston, and inspired a wicked parody by Seth Meyers called “Boston Accents.” The subject matter of “Patriot Days” creates an immunity towards commentary on the Boston accents in the movie, but there are still a few moments that are reminders (seriously, download that sketch on YouTube). Peter Berg (“Friday Night Lights”) is a yeoman director who tells a straightforward story, and succeeds in re-creating the events of that week without too much hyperbole. It was a frightening time for Boston and the country, but the results of »

Ocean's Eight Brings in Katie Holmes and James Corden

13 January 2017 7:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the main players in Warner Bros.' all-female reboot of Ocean's 11 have been set for quite some time, the production keeps adding new cast members. Today we have a report that late night talk show host James Corden has signed on for a supporting role, while yesterday, Katie Holmes was spotted on set. Her casting was never announced or confirmed by the studio, but the actress was seen walking onto the set, and then she was seen leaving a makeup trailer.

The Daily Mail reports that the production filmed at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in Manhattan on Tuesday, which could actually confirm some longstanding plot rumors. While the studio has not issued any plot details at this time, the story reportedly revolves around Sandra Bullock's character, the con-artist sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean from Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's trilogy who puts a team of »
