John Goodman Shows Off Dramatic Weight Loss at "Trumbo" Premiere!

22 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

This is the best we've seen John Goodman look in a long time!  The "Roseanne" alum hit the red carpet for the premiere of his new movie, "Trumbo," in London, England on Thursday. John showed off his newly-slim stature wearing a dark pinstripped suit and gray button down.  Goodman looked like he was having a blast on the red carpet with costars Dame Helen Mirren and Bryan Cranston. Miren looked pretty in pink in her A-line dress, while the "Breaking Bad" star rocked a classic brown suit.  It's pretty clear that the 63-year-old actor has lost a ton a weight since this time last year. Goodman hit the red carpet, with a much fuller figure, for the premiere of "The Gambler" during AFI Fest in November 2014 (above).  The actor has spoken openly about his weight struggles, admitting that he once weighed 400lbs. While John dropped some lbs back in 2010, his weight continued to fluctuate. »

John Goodman Debuts Dramatic Weight Loss on the Red Carpet—See the Before and After Pics!

9 October 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

John Goodman has lost a lot of weight! The 63-year-old actor debuted his significantly slimmer physique on the red carpet Thursday at the premiere of his new movie Trumbo during the BFI London Film Festival. The Roseanne alum has spoken publicly on multiple occasions about his fluctuating weight. In 2010 after having lost nearly 100 pounds, the Golden Globe winner told Men's Health how he'd struggled to maintain a healthy weight for most of life. "It started when I was a kid. I'd lock myself in the house and sneak food," he said. "It gave me great pleasure to eat—it's part of an alcoholism personality." Goodman has been sober since 2007, and in doing so, »

Trumbo review [Lff 2015]: “Cranston delivers a career-best…”

8 October 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Trumbo review: Cranston delivers a career-best performance in this Hollywood biopic that is one of the best of the festival so far. Trumbo review

Bryan Cranston leads the cast in this exceptional biopic of blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, a favourite on the festival circuit which finally makes it to Europe and this year’s BFI London Film Festival.

The story revolves around the life of the Academy-Award winning writer who penned the likes of Spartacus, Roman Holiday and The Brave One, winning Oscars for the latter two. Trumbo was famously blacklisted in the 1940s for being a communist and this film covers the period of time from shortly before said blacklisting in 1947, the 11-month prison sentence that he served for contempt shortly afterwards, and how his home life and indeed career progressed following his release.

International trailer for Red Scare drama ‘Trumbo’

6 October 2015 7:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“What we’re about to do is the one thing everyone says we can’t: we work.”

After being blacklisted as a communist during the Second Red Scare, screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) attempts to continue his career in secrecy while still maintaining his spirit and values. Like the 2005 Oscar nominated film Good Night, and Good Luck, Jay Roach’s Trumbo details a real and troubling period in American history when even the implication of communist ties could ruin a person’s career and way of life.

Though we’re a few years removed from Breaking Bad, it’s great to see the infinitely talented Bryan Cranston on screen and seemingly in top form. Among others in Trumbo’s talented cast are Helen Mirren, Louis C.K., Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire) and John Goodman, who played makeup artist John Chambers in Argo, another Hollywood-themed political thriller.

Trumbo comes to theaters November 6th, »

In a latest trailer for “Trumbo,” new footage shows screenwriter Dalton Trumbo‘s fight to make movies amidst the backdrop of the Red Scare in 1940s Hollywood. The trailer serves up more emotion than the first as it depicts Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) behind bars, as well as shows a new scene in which Trumbo is questioned by Congressional legislators about his suspected membership in the Community party. “Am I accused of a crime?” he asks, to which the courtroom erupts in outrage.

Bryan Cranston Fights The System In Rousing New Trailer For Trumbo

6 October 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In 1940s Hollywood, few screenwriters could hold a candle to the blistering success and aura of one Dalton Trumbo, who rose to the top of the pack with his brilliant work, only for it all to come crushing down when a wave of social paranoia washed over the United States of A. Left to fight against the Powers That Be for recognition as a genuine writer and free American citizen, the tragic tale is simply ripe for tapping, and it’s small wonder why the hero-to-zero arc hasn’t flirted with the silver screen in the past.

Low and behold, director Jay Roach is about to rectify that later this year with Trumbo, a dramatic biopic of the shunned screenwriter that places Breaking Bad alum Bryan Cranston behind the typewriter. Dealing with themes of fear-mongering and media scapegoats, it’s hardly surprising that Roach’s drama has emerged as one »

Bryan Cranston Fights the Hollywood Blacklist in New Trailer and First Clip For ‘Trumbo’

6 October 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In his most substantial post-Breaking Bad role thus far, Bryan Cranston is going back in time. The actor takes the lead in Trumbo, a Jay Roach-helmed biopic centered on the life of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. The writer’s credits for Roman Holiday, SpartacusPapillon, and A Guy Named Joe are only a very small part of the story. During the anti-Communist fervor of the ’50s, the suspected Red was driven from Hollywood — by which point his career and personal life was left in tatters. The amazing part? Trumbo managed to continue writing thereafter, eventually receiving a public revival of sorts through the support of John F. Kennedy, Otto Preminger, and Kirk Douglas.

Ahead of a release next month, we now have a new trailer and clip for the film. While we didn’t get a chance to check it out at Tiff, Variety said, “If history is written by the victors, »

Bryan Cranston braves the blacklist in new Trumbo trailer

6 October 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Biopic?  Check.  Golden Age of Hollywood?  Check.  Stacked ensemble cast? Check.  Trumbo has everything Hollywood and Academy Awards voters love as Bryan Cranston brings the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo to the big screen.

Cranston stars as the highly successful and in-demand screenwriter Dalton Trumbo who saw his career options plummet after he is blacklisted in the 1940s for being a Communist.  The man behind Spartacus and Roman Holiday was persona non grata along with several of his writer pals as the great Red Scare made waves throughout the United States government and trickled down through Hollywood studios and heavyweights.

What’s a movie about Hollywood in the 1940s without a few famous players of the time?  Some of the biggest names of the era appear as characters in the film including former actress and gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (played by Helen Mirren) who infamously spared with Trumbo in her anti-Communist crusade. »

New Trumbo Trailer Released

6 October 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Hotly tipped for an Oscar at the next ceremony, Bryan Cranston looks to have seized the role of Dalton Trumbo in Jay Roach's Hollywood communist witch-hunt drama with considerabe gusto. Following the recent poster, here's a new trailer to give you a sense of what's to come. Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, John Goodman and Louis C.K. co-star.There’s a rich – and no doubt, deliberate – irony that Hollywood's database of exciting unmade scripts is called the Black List. Back in the late ‘40s, the blacklist was exactly where a screenwriter didn’t want to be. One, Spartacus and Roman Holiday writer Trumbo (Cranston), found himself cast into movie prison when he fell foul of the communist witch hunts of the time.Roach's film will show how his career was nearly snuffed out by those spurious charges and innuendo. It’s set against a rich Hollywood backdrop haunted »

New Trailer for Jay Roach's Excellent 'Trumbo' with Bryan Cranston

6 October 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Am I accused of a crime?" Entertainment One in the UK has debuted a brand new international trailer for Jay Roach's Trumbo, the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, played by Bryan Cranston. In the 1940s, Trumbo and many of his friends are accused of being communists, and this film tells the story of how they defeated congress and the pure evil House UnAmerican Activities Committee. I recently had the chance to see Trumbo and it's an excellent film, playing strong on comedy with outstanding performances. The cast includes Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning and many others. This trailer is much more serious than expected, but I still highly recommend watching. Enjoy! Here's the new international trailer for Jay Roach's Trumbo, from Entertainment One's YouTube: Trumbo is directed by Jay Roach and written by television writer John McNamara. The film tells »

New International Trailer: "Trumbo"

6 October 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

On the one hand Jay Roach's "Trumbo" looks to be an Oscar bait movie in every way - an exploration of the communist witch-hunt that took place during the late 1940s when screenwriters saw their careers and lives ruined by spurious charges and innuendo.

On the other there's some strong comedic talent packing the supporting cast and a slight over the top sense to everything here which means the tone sometimes seems a little off. Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, John Goodman, Louis C.K., Alan Tudyk and Michael Stuhlbarg star in the film which opens in the U.S. on November 6th.

One of the guests of honor at Vincentennial was Vincent Price’s daughter Victoria Price.
