Snook is still in the preliminary stages of locking down a deal, which will find her playing close to Michael Fassbender’s titular character as she’s slated for the role of his long-time publicist, Andrea “Andy” Cunningham. She will join a previously-announced cast that includes: Seth Rogen as Jobs’ right-hand man and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as Mac marketing mogul Joanna Hoffman, Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, Perla Haney-Jardine and Ripley Sobo as Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan and Katherine Waterston as Jobs’ long-term girlfriend, Chrisann Brennan.
The real-life Cunningham was very close to the Apple founder, as she worked alongside Jobs during Apple’s formative years, and later became a valued »

Not surprisingly, the Screen Actors Guild Awards is one of the best precursors as to who will win the four acting categories at the Oscars. Over the past two decades, these kudos have previewed 57 of the 80 Oscar winners for acting (if you count Benicio del Toro, who won in lead at SAG in 2000 for "Traffic" and supporting at the Oscars and Kate Winslet who did the reverse, winning supporting at SAG in 2008 for "The Reader" and lead at the Oscars). -Break- All four of last year's Oscar acting champs first prevailed here. However, that marked only the fifth time in 20 years that the guild hit a home run. In both 2012 and in 2011, SAG winners went three for four at the Oscars. The guild is far less reliable when predicting Best Picture. In the 19-year history of the Best Ensemble award, that winner went on to take Oscar's top prize only nine times. »
The Divergent Series: Insurgent is turning the tables on characters old and new in five new posters, unveiling an upside-down dystopian world. New character posters created for our heroes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), and newcomers Evelyn (Naomi Watts), Johanna (Octavia Spencer) are great, but the one we really need to keep our eye on is Jeanine (Kate Winslet).
Jeanine gets not one, but two character posters – the traditional still poster and one pretty intense motion poster that may have given us cause to jump when watching with speakers turned on full volume.
Picking up where last year’s Divergent left off, we now find Tris and co. on the run amongst the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Hunted by Janine, the power-hungry leader of the Erudite faction, Tris is searching for answers and allies as she comes to terms with the decisions of her past on a »

Subject: From Harvey Weinstein
Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers. I totally understand, there is a lot of pressure out there. You are a terrific guy, but the world of Broadway is tough. I personally will miss you — you are courageous and smart and definitely impressed me.
All my best,
With that e-mail, Harvey Weinstein and Finding Neverland executive producer Victoria Parker ended their relationship with veteran Broadway press agent Rick Miramontez. Until Tuesday, Miramontez and Weinstein were joined at the hip in navigating the new musical through more than two years of heavy rewrites, two tryouts, cast changes and a run-up to the show’s March 15 first preview at the Nederlander-owned Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. The show, based on Miramax’s 2004 Johnny Depp »

Entertainment Weekly has debuted five new motion posters for the highly-anticipated sequel The Divergent Series: Insurgent, which hits theaters in less than two months on March 20, 2015. These unique motion posters feature Shailene Woodley (Tris), Theo James (Four), Kate Winslet (Jeanine), Octavia Spencer (Johanna) and Naomi Watts (Evelyn). Shailene Woodley also spoke to EW about Tris' plight in this next installment in The Divergent Series:
"She's left with a lot of confusion as far as what the future holds. But she's also left with a lot of guilt from the war, from losing her parents and from Will, so [in Insurgent] you see a newfound strength in her for revenge, as well as a lot of internal battles that she's trying to weave her way around."
The sequel continues the thrilling adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Having discovered she is Divergent, »
The portraits reflect the idea that much of the action takes place within the minds of the characters which include Tris (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James), Jeanine (Kate Winslet), Evelyn (Naomi Watts), and Johanna (Octavia Spencer).

The mighty Alan Rickman’s film wasn’t what I was expecting when we shared the first trailer but only full of positive reaction.
Lionsgate’s A Little Chaos had it’s global premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival and followed with a gala presentation at the BFI London Film Festival, and now hits UK cinema screens on April 17th. The film re-imagines the creation of the Rockwork Grove, one small element of the Sun King, Louis Xiv’s building of the magnificent Palace of Versailles.
There was a lot of critical love when it played as it centres around Madame Sabine De Barra (Kate Winslet), who is an unlikely candidate for landscape architect of the still?to-be-completed Palace of Versailles. She has little time for the classical, ordered designs of the man who hires her, the famous architect Le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts). However, things occur…but we’re not saying more! »

Already used in the 2013 biopic Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher, the crew of Universal Pictures' new Steve Jobs biopic have returned to 2066 Crist Drive to begin shooting their own take on the Apple co-founder's life. The iconic location has been declared a landmark, and resides in Los Altos. It is the childhood home of Steve Jobs and the birthplace of Apple.
CBS San Francisco has video of the production as it gets underway, shooting at this real location where Jobs, played by Michael Fassbender, and Steve Wozniak, played by Seth Rogen, built their very first Apple computer. Jobs moved to the house with his foster parents in the 7th grade and lived there through high school. It was in the attached garage, which we see here redecorated with props from that time period, where the first 50 Apple 1 computers were constructed in 1976.
Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle (127 Hours) is behind this unique »
CBS San Francisco news took some video of Jobs' old home in Los Altos, California over the weekend. I've also included some additional photos showing the detail of the completed set thanks to CNET. The 2013 Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad film, Jobs, also shot at this location. I think it's safe to say that this upcoming film is going to be a hell of a lot better, though. Here's a description of what is included on the set:
"Cinderblock and wood shelves are pieced together along the walls. Roller skates, a Thermos, an old vacuum cleaner and 8-track player and stereo lay haphazardly about. An advertisement for a Braun electric coffee maker hangs on the wall, »

If the theatrical trailer for the mouthful of a sequel that is The Divergent Series: Insurgent didn't lay things out clearly enough for you, or just didn't offer enough footage from the film if you're already a fan, then we've got two treats for you. Two new featurettes surfaced online this week with footage from behind the scenes of the film, featuring interviews with Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet and more. They talk about the story, the larger scale production, and what we can expect from the sequel (including more, bigger simulations in the mind). It looks a little too packed, but may be an improvement. Here's one featurette for Robert Schwentke's The Divergent Series: Insurgent from eOne UK: And here's a visit to the set of the sequel from the folks at "The Today Show" on NBC: You can still watch the full theatrical trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent right here. »

While Divergent introduced moviegoers to the post-apocalyptic world featuring the Dauntless, Abnegation, Erudite and Candor – Insurgent promises to tear down the fictional dystopian Chicago world.

Here are the four biggest revelations that caught our eyes:
1. Insight into the Amity, Candor and Factionless worlds
“The film begins with Tris and Four in a faction called Amity, “Shailene explains in the new featurette, adding, “They value compassion and peace and it’s not quite Tris’ mindset.” And as Ansel aka Caleb Prior, directly points out, “In Insurgent you also see Candor, you see factionless”
Speaking of Amity, Octavia is taking »

Looking forward to Insurgent? Good, because a new featurette just came out that makes it look even more awesome than we thought. Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Ansel Elgort, and Theo James are all talking about what to expect in the movie, and there's even more action than in the trailers. We also get another good look at Naomi Watts as Four's estranged mother and tons of behind-the-scenes footage. "In Divergent we created a world," says producer Douglas Wick. "And in Insurgent, we're going to tear it up." Can't wait! But we'll have to, because it doesn't open until March 20. »
The sequel to Divergent is coming on out on March 20. The Divergent Series: Insurgent will see Robert Schwente (Red) take over as director, as the saga continues. The first film came out last March, and made $288,747,895 on an $85 million budget.
Lionsgate as released a new featurette, via Yahoo:
Now on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet) and the rest of the power-hungry Erudites, Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) search for allies and answers in the ruins of Chicago. They must find out what Tris' family sacrificed their lives to protect and why the Erudites will do anything to stop them. Side by side, Tris and Four face one seemingly insurmountable challenge after another, as they unravel the secrets of the past and -- ultimately -- the future of their world.

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »
