Last week at CinemaCon I landed a few minutes with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer on the red carpet before the Warner Bros. panel. The two busy actors were in Las Vegas promoting their upcoming Guy Ritchie actioner The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (watch the trailer here). Set during the height of the Cold War, the film stars Hammer and Cavill as a Kgb agent and CIA agent, respectively, who are forced to team up in a joint mission to stop a mysterious criminal organization from proliferating nuclear weapons and technology. The film also stars Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Debicki, and Jared Harris. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opens in theaters on August 14th.

This week on Nashville, there was seemingly no problem that neither money nor misogyny couldn't solve.

What she's really up to is trying to convince Deacon's estranged sister, Beverly, to cough up a liver for her brother. Through a series of flashbacks we learn that Beverly and Deacon's singing partnership was derailed by Rayna coming into the picture and that Beverly's jealousy runs deep. We also learn that »

Man Up (2015)
Written by Tess Morris
Directed by Ben Palmer
UK, France, 2015
At 34, Nancy (Londoner-accented Lake Bell) is a flakey journalist on the reluctant look for love at the pestering of friends and family. Through a case of mistaken identity hinging on a self-help book, she winds up on a date turned epic day with Jack (Simon Pegg), an online marketing manager. Charming, right? It’s this on-the-nose “charm” which will divide audiences into lovers and haters (with this viewer falling more towards the latter). In spite of a stellar cast, Man Up falls flat on its promising premise of being a rom-com for nonbelievers.
From the very outset, Nancy is the cool-not-cool girl of quirky nonchalance – watching Silence of the Lambs, writing affirmations in her moleskine, chomping on a baguette, flailing in interactions with members of the opposite sex. Everything she does and says denotes a certain out-of-place yet above-it-all persona, »

Forget a new album. Miguel has stars in his eyes. According to Variety, he is in negotiations to star in a romantic musical drama, produced by John Legend and directed by Kanye and Frank Ocean–favorite Nabil Elderkin. Miguel will play perhaps the most Hugh Grant–iest role (to not be played by Hugh Grant): "A former one hit wonder who regains his love for music when he is hired to coach an aspiring singer for her audition on a singing competition show." Sounds good, right? This will be the Music and Lyrics sequel we never knew we always needed. »

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.

Time flies. Believe it or not, we’re now three full months into the 2015 movie calendar, which means we’re literally a quarter of the way through the film slate. That got me thinking about what the best of the bunch so far this year has been. Since now is the time when the film slate begins to transition into summer flicks (cough, Furious 7, cough) and counter programming independent fare, I thought it was the perfect time to praise the best of 2015 so far. Basically, anything that hit screens between January 1st and March 31st will be up for grabs here for my personal honors. I do have one release from this weekend that I’ve included, but only because of how eager I am to talk about it. Other than that, there’s no cheating…I swear! Below you’ll find my top ten of the year so far, »

Ok, so we all know that movie logic increases the median attractiveness of everybody on screen by at least 50%, and we accept it. But what happens when an actor is just too attractive for suspension of disbelief to work in a particular role?
Mae Whitman being cast as the eponymous "designated ugly fat friend" in this weekend's The Duff is a fine example. Thankfully the film (which is kind of great, by the way) does take pains to emphasise that even perfectly attractive people can be the Duff in their friendship group, because Duff is a state of mind. Or something.
Digital Spy takes a look back at seven more actors who were too attractive for the part, most of whom still got cast anyway.

Hugh Grant returned to screens earlier this year in the low-key, amiable rom-com "The Rewrite." The movie reteamed him writer/director Marc Lawrence ("Two Weeks Notice," "Music And Lyrics," "Did You Hear About The Morgans?") for their fourth movie together, and results were a breezy charmer. If you missed the film, or are a fan, today we've got a special prize. But first, here's what the movie is about... Co-starring Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Bella Heathcote, and Chris Elliott, the movie follows Keith Michaels, an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, who has hit a personal and professional rut. So when his agent arranges a job as a guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can’t say no. Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students lives, »

Simon Helberg is probably best known at the moment for playing nerdy engineer Howard Wolowitz in sitcom The Big Bang Theory (or if you’re into deep geeky cuts, Moist from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog). He’s had a few parts in movies, but it set for a bigger role in Stephen Frears’ new film, Florence Foster Jenkins, which will see the actor sharing the screen with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant. The film will chronicle the life of Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep), an heiress and socialite whose driving passion was opera. Specifically, she wanted to get on stage and sing, but was held back by the fact that she could barely warble a correct note.Yet while Florence was convinced that the voice she heard in her head was mellifluous and lovely to all, her partner/manager, aristocratic actor St. Clair Bayfield (Grant) became determined to protect that delusion, »

It's crazy to think now, 10 years on, that the reputation surrounding Doctor Who before the broadcast of series one episode 'Rose' - starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper - in 2005, was not what it is now.
In fact, in the pre-2005 Who landscape, it's safe to say that in terms of the general public and especially in the media, the series was regarded as a bad joke. And not even a very good bad joke at that.
The press just didn't take it seriously. In the aftermath of the initial 2003 announcement of the show's return, tabloids suggested that people like Paul Daniels and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen were in the running to be the new Doctor Who. Remember, they're not even actors.
But before another lazy journalist had the time to type "wobbly sets" for the 13th time that hour, a masterstroke was pulled - the BBC presented Christopher Eccleston as the »
