That old saying about “three’s a crowd” doesn’t apply to Emmy statuettes on your mantle. Which is exactly why Homeland‘s Claire Danes will be hoping to score her third consecutive win as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 2014 ceremony.

Coming off the Showtime thriller’s uneven third season, though, Danes is hardly a lock. Among her competitors are 2011 champ Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), who got left off the ballot in 2013 but roared back into contention this year with the CBS drama’s jaw-dropping, »
“A Most Wanted Man,” one of the final films of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, took off in its limited debut and Woody Allen‘s “Magic in the Moonlight” started solidly in its debut this weekend. But Richard Linklater‘s “Boyhood” was nearly as impressive in its expansion. “A Most Wanted Man” delivered the first top ten opening in the 11-year history of Roadside Attractions, which is distributing the spy thriller based on John le Carre's novel with Lionsgate. The cerebral espionage saga, directed by Anton Corbijn and co-starring Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright, opened to $2.7 million from 361 locations. »

Directed by Anton Corbijn
Throughout the beginning of Anton Corbijn’s A Most Wanted Man, it is hard to ignore that there are only a handful of upcoming performances left from Philip Seymour Hoffman in this world. The actor’s untimely death earlier this year left a hole in the world of cinema, one that will not be filled anytime soon. Hoffman was a character actor who managed to become an A-lister, without ever losing his chameleon-like ability to channel whatever or whomever he wanted.
Günther Bachmann is more down-to-earth than other prototypical spy genre leading men, likely to flash a quick grin after a disparaging comment rather than take down an army of terrorists single-handedly. As Bachmann, Hoffman affects a German accent and an unwillingness to look anyone in the eye. Whether this gesture is »

Feathered lingerie, mobster chic and a toothpaste attack -- stars are rocking all the wrong trends this week! Selena Gomez raised some eyebrows at the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest 2014 this week in Italy, rocking a white, sheer rose-embroidered shirt with a matching tulle skirt from Blumarine. While we applaud the "Come & Get It" singer for taking a fashion risk, she looks like a cater waiter dressed as a lingerie model dressed as a bird. Robin Wright showed off her toned arms on the red carpet at the premiere of "A Most Wanted Man" in New York City on Tuesday, sporting something Johnny Depp would wear!The blonde beauty seems to be channeling a 40's mobster in this masculine ensemble.

John LeCarre’s A Most Wanted Man has the author’s usual trademarks: unique characters conveyed with shades of gray, an intricate and creative plot, and an appreciation for the complexities of international politics. The last LeCarre film adaption Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with its meticulous Cold War details and labyrinthine cloak-and-dagger plot, required the viewer to maneuver a dense story through many twists and knots. A Most Wanted Man is more straightforward, yet no less engrossing and it’s anchored by a powerful performance from Phillip Seymour Hoffman in his last role.
The setting is Hamburg Germany – where some of the 9-11 hijackers had planned their attacks. Here’s where Issa Dobrygin (Grigori Dobrygin), a young, sickly, frightened Muslim from Chechnya (or is he?) washes up on shore seeking refuge after escaping from Russia. He enlists the help of mother and son Muslim émigrés from Turkey who, in turn »

Okay let's start with the facts. 1. Robin Wright is ripped, therefore she looks killer in this tank. 2. There are no "rules of the red carpet" these days, therefore the Netflix star can wear whatever she damn well pleases. But also 3. This getup looks an awful lot like what Johnny Depp would wear to this same event—minus a wildly over-sized gangster blazer, of course. It's reason number three that makes it difficult for us to support this iconic actress. She's taken a risk we admire, but she kind of looks like a mobster from the '40s as a result. Skinny black jeans, loose white pants, or really any bottoms would solve the style problem. A swap of the boots might also »
On its own, Anton Corbijn’s “A Most Wanted Man,” based on the 2008 novel by John le Carré, is a taut, post-9/11 spy thriller about a government’s attempt to avert future terror attacks. But consider the events that transpired outside the film, and it morphs into a more substantial, sad, and definitive piece of work. This past February, the movie’s lead, Philip Seymour Hoffman, died of a drug overdose. In the film, one of Hoffman’s last, he portrays German spy chief Günther Bachman with the same passion and aplomb he’s shown throughout his career. That the slowly unraveling Bachman is rarely seen on screen without a lit cigarette dangling from his mouth or a shot of whiskey splashed in his coffee mug makes the performance that much more fraught with emotion. On-screen substance abuse is always difficult to watch, but even more so when it originates »

After two seasons of watching Robin Wright play ice queen Claire Underwood on "House of Cards," it’s refreshing to see her mix things up!The actress battled it out with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on Wednesday in a game called "Turn and Face the Music."Robin and Jimmy stood side-by-side and turned around simultaneously to do dramatic readings off cue cards.

We know (and love) Robin Wright for playing ice queen Claire Underwood on House of Cards, but the actress behind the character isn't quite as buttoned up as her onscreen persona. Robin showed off her goofier side when she took part in "Turn and Face the Music" with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Wednesday. The skit involved Robin and Jimmy turning around and reading random lines from cue cards and then being forced to dance to whatever music came on. The result? Robin and Jimmy getting the giggles and the actress showing off her impressive twerking skills. Watch the full bit above. »

After two seasons of watching Robin Wright play ice queen Claire Underwood on House of Cards, it's refreshing to see her mix things up with Jimmy Fallon in the bizarre game "Turn and Face the Music." Basically, they take turns whipping around the face the camera, reading a line they've never seen before and then dancing to an incongruously unexpected song. »

A Most Wanted Man director Anton Corbijn on Philip Seymour Hoffman getting it right: "When we had done a take and he wasn't sure he didn't want to look at the monitor, he would just listen." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze
Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, with a script by Andrew Bovell, stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Robin Wright, Nina Hoss (star of Christian Petzold's Barbara) and Grigoriy Dobrygin. Anton and I spoke about his supporting cast: Bernhard Schütz, terrific in Frauke Finsterwalder's Finsterworld, Martin Wuttke, Adolf Hitler in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, and Herbert Grönemeyer, who played Ian Curtis's doctor in Corbijn's debut feature Control and is the composer for The American and Anton's latest. Homayoun Ershadi, known for his work with Abbas Kiarostami rounds out the superb cast. We also discussed Wim Wenders' The American Friend and the character of Hamburg. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
An audience member asking to hear a professional singer perform queries from Yahoo! Answers inspired this bit on "The Tonight Show," where Tony winner Audra McDonald was joined by actor Josh Charles and host Jimmy Fallon to sing real questions and answers from the site. Some of the questions were fairly straightforward -- "How can I be the life of the party?" -- while others were...less than intelligent. (The person worrying about how to dislodge a swallowed ice cube may need to seek professional help.) Our fingers are crossed that this concept is added to Fallon's regular rotation of quirky recurring gags.

Pic marks the last major performance from the Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was found dead in his New York apartment just after the film made its Sundance premiere earlier this year.
“It’s an incredibly difficult night,” director Anton Corbijn explained before the screening at the Museum of Modern Art. “At the same time I’m very happy about Philip’s strong performance in the film. I think people will take notice of that regardless of what happened afterwards.”
Adapted from the John le Carre novel of the same name, story is centered on a Chechen-Russian immigrant who arrives in Hamburg to claim his late father’s suspiciously acquired fortune, putting both German and U.S. security agencies on alert. Hoffman portrays Gunther Bachmann, chief of a covert German spy unit. »

Frank heads home in defeat, but his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), tells him to do whatever it takes to regain the trust of the president.

As we arrive at the end of July with just one month to go in the summer, this weekend is going to be one more test of whether starpower makes a difference when it comes to box office hits as we have two action movies featuring top stars as well as a smaller box office comedy starring two Oscar-winning actors who have never appeared in a movie together, although both of them may be considered past their prime.
Before we get to that, Scarlett Johansson stars as the title character in French action director Luc Besson's sci-fi action thriller Lucy (Universal), which co-stars Morgan Freeman in his third movie of the year.
This week's "Chosen One" is Anton Corbijn's adaptation of John Le Carée's post-humous spy thriller A Most Wanted Man (Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions), starring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright. »
