His brief trip down memory lane. Josh Hartnett spoke to Playboy in its May 2015 issue about dating some of Hollywood's hottest leading ladies, including Scarlett Johansson, Kirsten Dunst, and Amanda Seyfried. The Penny Dreadful actor, 36, who was once notorious for romancing his costars , told the mag that doing so has worked out in his favor — for the most part. "I think it’s a respectable way of going about it,” he said of dating his costars. "I’ve met very important people in my life doing [...] »

'Fargo' mastermind Noah Hawley reflects on Peabody Award on the Season 2 set

17 April 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Calgary, Alberta. There have been so many honors for FX's "Fargo" that it's hardly surprising to find a visit to the set coinciding with yet another award. In this case, on Thursday (April 16) morning, I found myself with a group of reporters on the Calgary set of the second installment of "Fargo" just as the cast and crew were reveling in the announcement that the show's first miniseries/season had been chosen for the 74th annual Peabody Awards. It's an award that recognizes not only quality, but a level of cultural importance. Ahead of a fuller discussion of Season 2 of "Fargo," I chatted with series creator Noah Hawley about what it meant to have his evolution of The Coen Brothers' Oscar-winner recognized in this way. "Look, there's no small awards," Hawley mused. "Know what I mean? Even my award from Rotten Tomatoes for the best reviewed show of the year, »

The Jinx, Serial: When did true crime become so cool?

16 April 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A year ago, if someone had mentioned that they were a fan of true crime, you might have sneered. You might have had images of cheap books in an airport Wh Smiths with gaudy titles, or perhaps of shoddily made TV programmes somewhere low down the Epg pecking order.

And then everything changed.

You couldn't move at the end of last year for people grabbing your arm and asking if you'd listened to the latest episode of Serial, a podcast investigating the 1999 murder of teenager Hae Min Lee and the ensuing case against her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed, who was later convicted and imprisoned. Suddenly, true crime was cool again.

Now, there's a new player in the world of true crime. The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst - which has already aired to great acclaim in the Us - broadcast its first episode in the UK on Sky Atlantic »

The MTV Movie Awards Hosts You Probably Forgot About

7 April 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, and we can't wait to see the hilarious Amy Schumer take the stage as the night's host. The stand-up comedian and Inside Amy Schumer star will join a long list of past emcees that includes Eddie Murphy, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Jessica Alba. While some hosts have been pretty unforgettable (remember how many digs Russell Brand took at the stars in the audience?), there are others we completely forgot about. For instance, we had no idea that Will Smith hosted the show back in 1994, and we may have blocked out that time MTV paired Jimmy Fallon with Kirsten Dunst for 2001's big event. Some high-profile stars have even hosted more than once! Keep reading to see all the MTV Movie Awards hosts you may have forgotten about, then check out the most '90s-tastic moments and sexiest smooches from the show's best kiss award winners. »

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César.

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Fargo Season 2 Casts Bruce Campbell as Pre-potus Ronald Reagan

25 March 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

  In 2013’s Lee DanielsThe Butler, Alan Rickman portrayed Ronald Reagan with a distinct subtlety that never dipped into total caricature yet inarguably summoned the, er, murkier elements of his character. Don’t hold your breath for a similar, studied underplaying from Bruce Campbell, who is set to play the 40th President of the United States in Fargo’s imminent second season, focusing on his 1970s and his years before moving into the White House. One should expect a more playful, satirical spin on the Gipper from Campbell, but then again, the man has proven to be a far more adept performer over years than anyone could have expected. He’s also a reliable axiom on television, most prominently on the ever-so-slightly underrated Burn Notice. [caption id="attachment_289791" align="alignright" width="353"] Image via Universal[/caption] The second season of Fargo will be set in the 1970s, and will focus on Lou Solverson, who was played by »

Watch: Find the ‘Loneliness of Sofia Coppola’ in this supercut

25 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nobody can quite capture the loneliness of life like director Sofia Coppola. Even in revolutionary France, there are those quiet moments between you and your thoughts.

Movement of Time decided to put these moments together in a supercut from Coppola’s filmography (Lost in Translation, Marie Antoniette, Somewhere, and The Bling Ring) with a focus on the characters and their lonely feelings throughout the films.

It also works as a nice highlight for some of the performances including Bill Murray in Lost in Translation and Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoniette. Coppola is able to find loneliness even in the biggest of sets and the films that the video focuses on are able to find that.

With Coppola moving to a live-action The Little Mermaid next, one has to wonder if she tries to apply this same technique to Ariel and the situation that she is in. While that may steer away from the Disney re-telling, »

Bruce Campbell as Ronald Reagan?! Oh, you betcha.

The Burn Notice vet has been cast as a pre-potus Reagan in Fargo‘s forthcoming second season, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Watch: Explore The Loneliness Of Sofia Coppola's Films With This Supercut

24 March 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been nearly two years since Sofia Coppola’s divisive “The Bling Ring,” and while we’ll see the acclaimed director reunite with her one-time muse Bill Murray for a Christmas special later this year, her next full-length film — a live-action take on “The Little Mermaid” — is still a long way off. What better time to take a look at Coppola’s filmography and gaze upon the disaffected, unhappy protagonists of her films, all cut together for your convenience? Edited by Movement Of Time, “Loneliness of Sofia Coppola” takes us on a five-minute journey through the time periods and landscapes of films like “Marie Antoinette.” Seeing actors like Kirsten Dunst here, or Murray in the world-conquering “Lost in Translation,” it seems that Coppola is fond of selling the loneliness and sadness of her characters by stranding them alone in beautifully framed shots. Watch “Loneliness of Sofia Coppola” below and place bets on how sad. »

We Were All Suckered by 'The Jinx' -- and That's Ok

20 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You'd think people would be happy with the finale this past Sunday of HBO's docu-series "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," Not only did the six-episode true-crime drama end with the kind of neat apparent-confession that real life seldom drops into the laps of journalists, but the episode was preceded by less than 24 hours by the actual arrest of its subject on a murder charge related to the crimes discussed on the show. Viewers got a bang-up ending, and the victims' families finally get to see the alleged killer face a court of law. Everybody wins, right?

And yet, there's been nothing but handwringing over the ethical questions raised by the conduct of filmmakers Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smerling and the fortuitous timing of the arrest. Jarecki and Smerling taped Durst's seemingly self-incriminating remarks ("What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.") during a 2012 interview, »

19 March 2015 2:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Get ready for a new generation of March sisters! There's a Little Women remake happening, sources confirm to E! News. Former Sony executive Amy Pascal will reportedly produce this adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's book, and she won't be the first one to do so. There have been many Little Women remakes before—including a 1933 version starring Katharine Hepburn and a 1949 film starring Elizabeth Taylor—but the most recent 1994 adaptation is the one with which you're probably the most familiar... Yes, that Little Women remake, starring Winona Ryder (as Jo), Kirsten Dunst (Amy), Trini Alvarado (Meg) and Claire Danes (Beth) is a classic in its own right! Admittedly, it's going to be tough »

Directors: Sarah Polley Penning 'Little Women,' John Woo To Remake 'Manhunt' And More

19 March 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While we eagerly await Sarah Polley to get back behind the camera and direct another movie, she's been busy on the screenwriting front. Last summer, she was hired by Paramount to adapt "The Fault In Our Stars," based on author John Greene's "Looking For Alaska." Now, she's been tapped by Amy Pascal to pen a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women" for Sony. The book has already seen a few iterations on the big screen, the most recent being the 1994 outing featuring Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes, Christian Bale, and more. For now, Polley isn't attached to direct, and won't make that decision until the script is done. [The Wrap] Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the man behind "The Kings Of Summer," and who will next helm the blockbuster "Skull Island," is adding the sci-fi "The Stars My Destination" to his plate over at Paramount. Based on the book by Alfred Bester, »

Way Back in 2010, Kirsten Dunst Told Us It Was "Crazy" Robert Durst Wasn't in Jail

16 March 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before HBO's The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst aired, there was a slightly fictionalized feature film made about his story: 2010's All Good Things, which starred Ryan Gosling as Durst ("David Marks") and Kirsten Dunst as his wife, Kathie ("Katie".) We dug up our interview with Dunst from back when the movie came out, and it seems like she was convinced of Durst's guilt well before The Jinx became a pop culture phenomenon. See what she said about the accused murderer and why it "really bothered" Gosling to have to portray him in the film. »

This Week in TV News: ‘The Walking Dead’ spinoff gets picked up for at least two seasons

14 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Week in TV News is a compliment to the Week in Review feature, which will now be focused on film news. 

AMC has guaranteed two seasons to the prequel companion series of The Walking Dead, as per THR. The announcement was made earlier this week, and comes as somewhat unsurprising news. The Walking Dead continues to be one of the channel’s highest rated shows, with its popularity showing no signs of waning as the show’s fifth season rolls along. In addition, AMC has found similar commercial and critical success with Better Call Saul, its new series that is itself a spinoff of Breaking Bad.

There’s no set title for the series as of yet, and working titles have included Fear The Walking Dead and Cobalt. The first season, much like the show that spawned this spinoff, will consist of six episodes, with creator Robert Kirkman working »
