McCoy Doesn't Want Female "Doctor Who"

20 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Fans of fictional characters often get in an uproar when a specific aspect of that character's personality is changed be it their gender, race, age, sexuality, beliefs or other traits. In some cases it can often be a valid justification as the aspect changed is a key part of that character and how it works in the narrative. Thus by changing it, the original intent of the story is ruined.

In other cases there's a bit more flexibility. In the case of "Doctor Who," you have a unique position - here's a character called The Doctor where the key thing about him is that he regularly regenerates, and when he does he changes drastically both physically and psychologically. In fact the more change the better as it provides a more interesting contrast to what came before, and that frequent changing has been the key to the show's longevity over the years. »

Liff Special Movie Review: One Crazy Thing

25 July 2015 1:37 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Out-of-work actor Jay (Ray Panthaki) struggles to make ends meet while managing his family’s London tandoori restaurant. Jay was once a rising star on a popular television soap, but his world came crashing down around him when his ex-girlfriend, Chloe, released their sex tape on the internet after he dumped her so he could focus on his career. Chloe went on to become a rich and successful Hollywood star, and Jay? He was dropped from the soap, he made the tabloids, he brought his family shame (even the family in India, his father points out), and his only claim to fame, it seems, is the infamous tape, the “one crazy thing” of the film’s title. He can’t go out to a bar without someone wanting a picture with the “Asian Persuasion”, as one fan calls him. He can’t even, it seems, go out on a date »

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer Are Sexy Spies in Guy Ritchie's New Film

11 July 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

While we're still drooling over Henry Cavill in the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, he has a completely different kind of movie coming out this year: The Man from U.N.C.L.E. It's a big-screen adaptation of a popular spy series from the '60s, and he stars opposite Armie Hammer as an unlikely spy duo. The film is directed by Guy Ritchie, and it looks like a lot of fun. The year is 1963, and there's all sorts of Cold War business starting up. Hammer's Russian accent is pretty weird, but we'll go with it. The movie is out on Aug. 14, and you can check out the brand-new Comic-Con trailer below. You'll also get peeks of Hugh Grant, Jared Harris, and Alicia Vikander. Here's the original trailer: »

Kangana Ranaut vs Deepika Padukone: Who will be the numero uno actress of Bollywood in coming time?

10 July 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Two actresses Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut are going neck-to-neck in acquiring the numero uno position in Bollywood. Both are currently ruling the roost after giving back-to-back hits. While Deepika's last hit was Piku, Kangana rocked the box-office with Tanu Weds Manu Returns lately. Though presently the two lissome beauties are at par, we can't say what will happen in coming days. Probably, either of the two will outshine the other one.

Well, if we go by the future projection, both Deepika and Kangana have some good films in hand. While Deepika has big-budgeted and big banner projects like Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani, Kangana's kitty is full with films like Rangoon, Mr Chaalo, Simran, Katti Batti, Rani Laxmi Bai, Divine Lovers. Though Deepika has fewer films as compared to Kangs, they look promising as Tamasha stars Ranbir Kapoor alongside being directed by Imtiaz Ali, whereas Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani »

Not love actually: why Britons ended their affair with the romcom

2 July 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

British romcoms such as Notting Hill and Bridget Jones used to woo audiences at home and abroad. Now, film-goers and studios have turned their backs on romance. How did the relationship go so wrong?

Love don’t live here any more. “Here” being the immaculately kept townhouses of west London, home to sweary upper-middle-class romantics prone to airport dashes and damp declarations of love. The British romcom, typified by Richard Curtis and his Working Title collaborations, was our most reliably profitable cinematic export for a considerable – some might say interminable – time. As well as packing UK cinemas, the films were big hits abroad (the global take for the 2003 film Love Actually was $247m (£158m), Bridget Jones’ Diary (2001), $282m, Notting Hill (1999), $364m) and led to Hugh Grant becoming every American’s idea of what to expect from a British man. Inevitably, disappointment followed.

New Man From U.N.C.L.E. Character Posters Land

29 June 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The svelte spy types of Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. look a lot more like they were born for this character poster business than, say, the Minions. Sure enough, their moment has arrived. Here’s five fashion-forward one-sheets to help us soak up all the pretty. Click to enlarge them. The five poster-ees are Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill), Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer), Alicia Vikander’s Gaby Teller, Elizabeth Debicki as Victoria Vinciguerra and Hugh Grant’s mysterious Mr. Waverly. Between Solo and Kuryakin - and there’s bound to be the odd character curveball – bubbles the kind of tension that comes with having to cross the Iron Curtain to tackle a common enemy. As those great ideological warriors, Red Heat’s Ivan Danko and Art Ridzik, would tell them, sometimes you just gotta get on with it.Transplanting the 1960s spy series to the big screen and boosting the budget, »
