Jurassic Park: Who was nearly cast in Steven Spielberg's dino classic?

25 November 2014 4:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Not even two dodgy sequels and 21 years passing can erase the magic of the very first time you watched Jurassic Park.

The Steven Spielberg dino adventure brought gasps from audiences - young and old - when it premiered around the world in 1993. Even today, a couple of seconds of that classic score can give you tingles and take you back to first time you saw The Park.

Like all great films, everything felt and looked like it slotted together perfectly. But that wasn't necessarily the case, as there were plenty of other big-name stars who so very nearly got the lead roles.

1. Harrison Ford was nearly... Dr Alan Grant

If it wasn't already greedy enough that Harrison Ford had landed himself awesome cool roles in two of the biggest movie franchises of all time - Star Wars and Indiana Jones - he could have almost have added a third dino-sized »

Robin Wright and Ben Foster Call Off Their 10 Month Engagement

12 November 2014 2:17 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After three years together and a ten-month engagement, Robin Wright and Ben Foster have reportedly called off their engagement, according to Us Weekly.

The two began dating in 2011 after they met on the set of Rampart and Foster popped the question in January 2014. The 48-year-old House of Cards star told the Telegraph in February that same year that that getting engaged to 34-year-old Foster wasn’t all that different than dating.

Watch: Robin Wright Can Dance!

"We felt married anyway,” Wright said. “We've been together ever since the first date."

The Golden Globe winner added that it wasn’t just the ring she had on her ring finger that represented her devotion to her now-ex.

“Ben has an ‘R’ tattoo in the same place,” she said, admitting that she actually has a ‘B’ tattoo on his ring finger as well. “I’ve been so anti-tattoos my whole life. But doing this felt right because we’re not »

12 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

We didn't see this one coming! Robin Wright and longtime beau Ben Foster have called off their engagement, according to Us. The actress and actor got engaged last Christmas and first started dating after meeting on the set of their 2011 flick "Rampart." So what changed? "She got swept up in the engagement last Christmas, but then their schedules got crazy and she realized it wasn't the right decision," an insider tells the mag, referring to Robin's decision to split. Wright and Foster have both been extremely busy working on various projects -- Wright's been filming in Baltimore for "House of Cards" and spends weekends with her children Dylan and Hopper Penn in Los Angeles, while Ben's been working in London on "A Streetcar Named Desire." But distance wasn't the only factor in their breakup, sources also suggest the couple's 14-year age difference also played a major part in the "Forrest Gump »

Robin Wright and fiancé Ben Foster have ended their engagement after 10 months, Us Weekly reports. The couple, who was last spotted together at the Golden Globes back in January, ultimately decided to call it quits due to scheduling conflicts. A source close to the House of Cards star said, "She got swept up in the engagement last Christmas, but then their schedules got crazy and she realized it wasn't the right decision," adding, "The [age] gap just ended up being too much.

A Most Wanted Man movie review: intelligence afterscape

6 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A smart, classy, slow-burn thriller made up of the stuff of authentic spy work and plenty of bitter irony about modern geopolitics. I’m “biast” (pro): love Philip Seymour Hoffman (and the rest of the fab cast)

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Oh. For some reason I thought this tale of weary intelligence officers was set in East Berlin in the 1970s. Maybe it was the profusion of cheap suits and the grimy colors of the trailer. Maybe it was the fact that it’s based on a John le Carré novel. (I always associate him with Cold War spies, but this book was published in 2008.) Anyway, though director Anton Corbijn’s (The American) production does feel — in a deliciously thrilling way — more like one of those slow-burn spy dramas set decades ago, »

'A Most Wanted Man' (2014) Movie Review

28 October 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Had a film the caliber of A Most Wanted Man been made in the late '60s or early '70s, with a name such as Jean-Pierre Melville or Alan J. Pakula, directing it would already be a part of the Criterion Collection, celebrated for the last 40 years as a classic. Whether it will stand so tall 40 years from now is a mystery, but digging into a film of this nature in the midst of today's modern cinematic age is pure joy for cinema lovers, and it's the third film in a row from director Anton Corbijn (Control, The American) deserving of such lofty praise. Adapted from John le Carre's novel of the same name by screenwriter Andrew Bovell (Edge of Darkness), A Most Wanted Man is a slow burn, spy thriller examining a post 9/11 world wherein the idea of friend or foe is a blurry, political mess and the »

Netflix readies Australasian service

23 October 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

After months of conjecture Netflix looks highly likely to launch in Australia and New Zealand in late March or early April.

That.s according to distributors who are negotiating film and TV content deals with the Us streaming giant.

The new season of House of Cards would be among the SVoD service.s first offerings Down Under, potentially a strong lure for subscribers.

The third series of the political drama, which stars Kevin Spacey, Law & Order.s Jenna Stern, Robin Wright and Nathan Darrow, is expected to launch in the Us in February, as did the earlier series.

Foxtel aired the first two series of the Netflix production licensed via Sony Pictures TV, but Netflix withheld the rights to the third season.

However Netflix's Australian feed will bear little similarity to the domestic service, at least for the first year or so, because Foxtel owns the SVoD rights to most of the desirable shows. »

15 Outlandish New-But-Familiar-Sounding TV Pilots

17 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who says TV programmers have run out of ideas?

Why, just in the last week, the trade papers have announced deals and casting for as many as 15 new reboots spinoff series and specials. Some sound like familiar shows, others like mutant Frankenstein hybrids of familiar shows. We'll leave it to you to decide which of these programs sound like must-see-tv and which sound like much-skip-tv.

"Care Bears and Cousins." Fuzzy is the new black at Netflix, which is reviving the candy-colored kiddie cartoon series but adding some new characters. No, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are not going to have a threesome with one of them.

"Cheerleader Death Squad." The CW has ordered this series, from the showrunners behind "Desperate Housewives" and "Under the Dome" (that'd be Marc Cherry and Neal Baer, respectively) about an elite prep school where the pep squad is made up of spies-in-training. Dan Truly ("Blue »

Kim Dickens joins House of Cards

17 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming off her recent performance in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, actress Kim Dickens will be joining the third season of the Netflix series House of Cards. Currently there isn’t a lot of details about what her role in the series will be, but considering her extensive television work there’s no doubt that she’ll fit right in with the likes of Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.

Besides her role in Gone Girl, Dickens has most recently appeared in episodes of Sons of Anarchy as well as a star on the HBO series Treme. She also starred in another HBO series, Deadwood, and has made appearances on Friday Night Lights and Lost.

Season 3 of House of Cards is set to return in February. The series is coming off of 13 Emmy nominations for it’s second season which is four more than it got for its debut season. Cards »

Gone Girl Star Signs On For House Of Cards Season Three

16 October 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix’s Emmy-winning drama House of Cards is known for playing its cards (eh, get it?) rather close to its chest. Over the course of two excellent seasons, viewers were kept on tenterhooks in the build-up to each respective premiere as the production team kept story-related tidbits largely under wraps.

And, thankfully, that still remains the case by and large. Although, TV Line has learned today that the show has added Kim Dickens to its proverbial deck for season three. We understand that the actress will have a recurring role in the political drama, though it remains unclear as to what the role will be exactly.

Nevertheless, Dickens, who has previously appeared in other shows including Sons of Anarchy and Treme, can currently be seen as Detective Rhonda Boney in David Fincher’s Gone Girl. On House of Cards, she will join series regulars Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Michael Gill. »
