22 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Silence of the Lambs” director Jonathan Demme does not approve of Israel's invasion of the Gaza Strip, and he's not worried about being labeled anti-Semitic. “I know that I am not anti-Semitic. I believe passionately that Palestine deserves statehood and there is a two-state solution,” the Oscar-winning director said during an interview (above) on Huffington Post Live. “I just don't see how you justify this horrendous use of force.” Also read: Meryl Streep to Star in Jonathan Demme Movie Written by Diablo Cody (Exclusive) Israel launched a ground invasion of the Palestinian region last Thursday after 10 days of bombings in response to Hamas. »

Author Lois Lowry sheds light on The Giver

22 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Author Lois Lowry gives us a behind-the-scenes look at The Giver and adaptation of her best-selling teen 1993 novel.

Memory and knowledge is a key theme in the plot of the film as young Jonas (BrentonThwaites) is selected for the job of Receiver of Memories in his utopian society where strife and pain no longer exist.  As the vessel which stores the memories of the past in case they should ever need to be called upon, Jonas partners with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), the one who holds the collective memory of their people.  Jonas and The Giver face a dilemma as to whether or not they should let their community continue on blissfully unaware of the full spectrum life has to offer outside the “Sameness” propagandized by the government.  

The book on which the film is based has long been a staple in school curriculum and now finds itself getting the »

Cameron Crowe’s latest, starring Bradley Cooper, delayed until 2015

21 July 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wrap has reported that the currently untitled return of director Cameron Crowe (Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous) has been pushed back from it’s original Christmas Day release until the middle of next spring. And while it may seem like a downer, it sounds like Sony, who are distributing the movie, have made the right choice considering the competition it faced in the Us over Christmas.

In the Us, the film was originally set to go head-head-to-head with a glut of wide, and potential hit, films. Disney’s big film for the festive season, an adaptation of musical Into the Woods, starring Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine was arguably the biggest obstacle.

Other obsticles included Angelina Jolie-directed Unbroken, cult-comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and  Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, which begins it’s limited release on the same day, but will still draw in the crowds. »

“Hey, Glad You Won But…”: Top 10 Nominees Deprived of Oscar Gold in Favor of Another Contender

19 July 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The knock on the Academy Awards throughout the years always seem to be how certain actors, directors and films are snubbed in favor of other chosen nominations. Sometimes the justification for these overlooked selections in performances and motion pictures are warranted. Many will agree that a lot of injustices have been committed based on how some Oscar-worthy selections were slighted.

Has anyone ever considered the equal possibilities of omission when one Oscar nominee wins the  golden statuette over another nominee that one thought was more deserving for the victory? There have been numerous instances when observers who have witnessed an Oscar win thought that their competitor should have received it instead. It is only human nature to have an opinion as to feel who should have claimed Oscar gold as opposed to the fellow nominee that actually accomplished the goal.

Let us look at the top ten instances where it »

Brenton Thwaites: Who Is 'The Giver' Star?

17 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Brenton Thwaites, star of the highly anticipated sci-fi adaptation The Giver, is about to become the next big thing.

Who Is Brenton Thwaites?

Thwaites, 24, is an Australian actor whose Hollywood career picked up this summer with breakout roles, co-starring in the thriller Oculus and as Prince Phillip in Maleficent, in which he acted opposite Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. Also this summer, Thwaites starred in The Signal opposite Laurence Fishburne. Before booking a string of Hollywood films, Thwaites starred on Australian television shows, SLiDE (2011) and Home and Away (2011-2012) and appeared in the Lifetime original movie Blue Lagoon: The Awakening (2012).

Thwaites, who is currently filming Gods of Egypt alongside Gerard Butler and Game of ThronesNikolaj Coster-Waldau, is certainly on his way to stardom, and he said working with more experienced Hollywood actors has been a huge step forward for him. In addition to his previous work with Jolie and Fishburne, »

'The Hotwives of Orlando' Pick Favorite Women in Pop Culture

17 July 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hulu's seven-episode series "The Hotwives of Orlando" lampoons Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchises in exactly the right ways: The catchphrases, the melodrama, the sham marriages, and the frightening fights are all parodied with very close attention to detail. Creators Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider have a cast of game ladies in their Florida-set series, including Schneider herself (who plays Shauna Maducci, the "bankrupt overspender"), "Happy Endings"/"SNL" vet Casey Wilson as trophy wife Tawny St. John, Tymberlee Hill as Phenomenon "Phe Phe" Reed, Andrea Savage as cougar Veronica Von Vandervon, Angela Kinsey of "The Office" as religious zealot Crystal Simmons, and "30 Rock" vet Kristen Schaal as drug-addled former child star Amanda Simmons.  HitFix caught a few minutes to interview Wilson, Hill, Savage, Schneider, and Phirman. Instead of asking them to name their favorite "Housewives" franchise or terrifying dream about Andy Cohen, we asked them to pick their favorite ladies from famous pop culture groups. »

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »

Meryl Streep Gets Creepy In New Featurette For The Giver

17 July 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Though it seems evident that Phillip Noyce's feature adaptation of Lois Lowry's celebrated novel The Giver is taking some liberties with the source material, what's also evident is that, in its efforts to promote the movie, The Weinstein Company doesn't appear to be trying to conceal much of the plot or some of the major events that transpire in the source material. That certainly applies to the above featurette, which includes numerous glimpses of the movie, and features some insights from stars Brenton Thwaites, Katie Holmes and Jeff Bridges. We also see Meryl Streep getting kind of creepy as she pokes her head in at Jonas' home and starts asking questions. The featurette introduces us to the basic plot and setting of the film. People exist in a black and white world where "sameness" is a way of life. Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is selected to be the next »

It’s almost over folks. Yes, this penultimate time around I’ll be tackling one of the very biggest of the big eight categories, one of the only two left. This one is arguably the second or third biggest of them all…it’s the Best Actress field.

You all mostly just want to see the lists that I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good people there in that particular regard once again. All you have to do is just be patient over the next paragraph or two and you’ll get the goods front and center for your reading pleasure… »

OneReblublic Music Video for The Giver - "Ordinary Human"

12 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Weinstein Company has released a music video for Jeff Bridges' feature film adaptation of The Giver. It features a new song by OneRepublic called "Ordinary Human," and it includes new footage from the fantastic looking film. 

The movie was directed by Phillip Noyce and it also stars Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush, and Taylor Swift.

The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. The film is based on Lois Lowry's beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

The movie will be released in theaters on August 15th. »
