Skins: Where Are They Now?

11 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The BAFTA award winning teen drama sensation Skins took Britain by storm in 2007 with its controversial story lines and relatable and eccentric characters. The show’s success made it the perfect training ground for up-and-coming British teen actors to throw themselves into the spotlight. In Justin Edgar’s energetic new comedy We Are The Freaks we find two of Skins‘ most popular alumni take centre stage on the big screen. Parsons (SkinsMike Bailey) and Chunks (SkinsSean Teale) accompany Jack (Jamie Blackley) on an eventful weekend that might change their lives forever. As this stylish, coming 0f age, cult comedy takes us back to the rebellious era of the 1990s, we celebrate the release of We Are The Freaks by taking our own look back at some of our favourite Skins stars and find out what they’ve been up to since leaving the hit drama.

'Mindy Project' recap: The case of the missing scarf

15 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Mindy and Schmidt, sitting in a tree…Well, not exactly.

But Schmidt, err, Max Greenfield did drop by The Mindy Project Tuesday night and boy was he a welcome surprise. Let’s back up. Mindy was still pretty devastated Danny broke up with her last week (Aren’t we all?). But, as a regular Glamour/Cosmo reader, she knew she needed to get back out there and go on some dates, including one with Betsy’s friend, the nice but unbelievably dull Phil (Adam Shapiro). (Phil = The reason the Lemon Law should be a real thing). Despite having a less-than-stellar time, »

Gone Girl Trailer Lands

15 April 2014 2:28 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Two pieces of David Fincher-related news arrived today, one to do with his current cinematic project, the other with one he has been attached to, or so we thought. We’ll kick things off with the new trailer for Gone Girl, which you can find below.Adapted from Gillian Flynn’s novel by the former journalist and author herself, Gone Girl finds Fincher firmly in dramatic thriller territory, with the story of how the outwardly perfect marriage between Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) has crumbled in the light of her disappearance. With Nick trying desperately to galvanise the locals of their small town in the search for his missing wife, the finger of suspicion begins to point towards him.This first trailer boasts the expected Fincher look and tone, even if the song choice makes us think it’s a dark sequel to Notting Hill with »

Complete Buffy reviews: Bad Girls/Consequences

5 April 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

I've been humming and hawwing about how to approach the next couple of episodes for the third series of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The issue that I sometimes encounter is that although some episodes aren't advertised as two or even three part stories, they still can be viewed as such. Bad Girls and Consequences are two such episodes that form a loose two-parter, and since they revolve around the same plot points and themes, I guessed it would make more sense to tackle these as one big review rather than two in which I repeat myself a lot.

Mind you, I've noticed that I've repeated myself in the past more times than I care to remember. How many times have I mentioned Dragon's Den or The Apprentice, for example?

Anyway, back to Buffyland. Bad Girls/Consequences marks the turning point of the third season with regards to the ongoing season arc. »

The Walking Dead: Monday (March 3) at 9pm on Fox

20 actors who almost got the part: Katniss, Loki, Bond, Batman

29 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With rumours flying about a new Indiana Jones and Disney reportedly closing in on their final choices for Jj Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, the Hollywood casting machine is operating at an even higher temperature than usual.

You'll be familiar with some of these near-misses, but others are frankly astonishing. Which rapper almost took Matt Damon's role in Elysium? Which former Friends star was the first choice to front Men in Black? And why is Leonardo DiCaprio Christian Bale's nemesis? Read on...

Al Pacino - Star Wars

Pacino revealed during a Q&A session last year that the role of roguish smuggler Han Solo was "his for the taking" back in the '70s, but he turned it down because he didn't understand the script. Harrison Ford made the role iconic and ended up having his own issues with Lucas's script, famously telling the director "You can type this s**t, »

Richard Ayoade interview: The Double and social awkwardness

27 March 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Ryan Lambie 31 Mar 2014 - 06:27

As his latest film, The Double, appears in UK cinemas, we chat to director Richard Ayoade about its making, social awkwardness and more...

“Maybe Brad Pitt doesn’t know what it’s like to be unpopular,” actor, writer and director Richard Ayoade tells me, his voice quiet and reflective, “but most people know what it’s like to have no one interested, or to be lonely, or to be knocked back, or to regret.”

Ayoade’s referring to his new film, The Double, a brilliantly surreal and poignant drama starring Jesse Eisenberg. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Fyodor Dostoevsky, it’s about a painfully shy young office worker (Eisenberg) and his polar opposite (also Eisenberg), who’s outgoing and confident. Unfolding like a science fiction nightmare, The Double is like a visual representation of anxiety and awkwardness, a portrait of »

On the trail of a con man

22 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Richard John Taylor had no problem attracting investors to his films. After all, he was a senior editor on EastEnders, ran a production company with Louis Theroux and had a lucrative deal with ITV. There was only one problem…

At the end of Tina Renton's book, You Can't Hide, she thanks her friend Richard John Taylor for everything he's done for her. Taylor, a film-maker, had become a saviour of sorts. He had met her through Rape Crisis in August 2011 when she was at her most vulnerable, befriended her, gave her a job as his personal assistant and made her feel worthwhile again.

Renton's story was as inspirational as it was shocking. She had been abused by her stepfather from the age of six. At 14, she told her mother, but her mother said if she went to the police, the family would be left homeless. She threw her partner out of the house, »

Friday The 13th: Ranking Every Movie From Worst To Best

21 March 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

The Friday the 13th film franchise has long been mauled by the critics and – often – even its biggest fans. It’s a stalk and slash series with a primitive notion of being scary which, when compared to the original Halloween and that other stalk and slasher franchise, Alien, is not very subtle at all. The films have grossed millions and the series has hit its twelfth entry but, like any long-running franchise, some are definitely better than others.

Bizarrely, the Friday the 13th film rights have been given back to Paramount in a deal which will allow Warner Bros. to co-produce Christopher Nolan’s 2014 summer blockbuster Interstellar. That Jason Vorhees has been a negotiating chip between two of the biggest studios for a Christopher Nolan epic is both strange and speaks volumes. In a way, they can chuck anything out under the moniker and it’ll make money. »

Throwback Thursday: What's your favorite TV or movie proposal? -- Video

20 March 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Today is a very busy day. For starters, it’s Throwback Thursday. But it’s also the first day of spring and, wait for it, National Proposal Day! So, it only seemed fitting that I kill two birds with one stone — I refuse to celebrate spring until it’s warm outside — and throw it on back to my favorite movie/TV proposal of all time.

If asked, most women can tell you at least a little something about their dream proposal. Maybe there’s a path of rose petals involved, or perhaps they’re a fan of the sporting event jumbotron. »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Alfonso Cuaron, Maggie Smith Back U.K. Press Regulation

London – ‎A group of more than 200 British celebrities and personalities, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Alfonso Cuaron, Maggie Smith and current Doctor Who lead Peter Capaldi, has urged newspaper owners to embrace stricter U.K. press regulation, which political parties had agreed on a year ago. Hacked Off, a group that has been campaigning ‎on behalf of victims of press abuse with Hugh Grant as one of its public faces, ran ads in several U.K. papers on Tuesday to mark the one-year anniversary of the political agreement that calls for a so-called royal charter to underpin a

My guilty pleasure: Notting Hill

18 March 2014 2:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the first of a new series on the movies our critics are ashamed to confess they like, Peter Bradshaw reveals his soft spot for a soppy love story about a London bookseller and the fabulous film star who falls for him

• Xan Brooks fesses up to loving Tangled

Films are there very largely to give you pleasure: they are pleasure-giving devices, and if a film succeeds in giving you pleasure, shouldn't you have the courage of your convictions and own up to it? So it is with mixed feelings that I nominate Notting Hill in this category, directed by Roger Michell and written by Richard Curtis — his 1999 followup to the 1994 smash-hit Four Weddings and a Funeral. It is widely panned but I enjoy it, and whenever it is showing on ITV4 as I flick channels I always find myself stopping to watch. It was in fact the first film »

Evgeny Lebedev: 'Russia is not a homophobic country'

15 March 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From reciting Shakespeare to curating his private library of 500 scents, Independent and London Evening Standard owner Evgeny Lebedev makes an unusual newspaper proprietor. Now he's planning to unleash himself on viewers as a TV presenter

Britain's youngest media magnate has only just begun to talk when he gets distracted by his own fingers, and breaks off to sniff them. Inhaling delicately, he smiles to himself, and explains that he keeps a private library of 500 scented oils in an office, which he had been checking on before I arrived. "Professional perfumers tell me I've got a good nose, which I'm very proud about. I think smell is one of the most powerful things in the world. It's like a time machine. Most people don't realise that. If I smell lilacs, for example, I'm immediately transported back to my childhood, because there are a lot of lilacs in Russia."

I've never met a newspaper proprietor before, »
