Women Goodwill Ambassador delivered an emotional speech at the United Nations headquarters on Saturday to help launch the HeForShe gender equality campaign. "I was appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for U.N. Women six months ago and the more I've spoken about feminism, the more I have realized »

Andy Serkis Details His Involvement In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though we’ve seen the full-length trailer several times by now, it’s still unclear which character Andy Serkis will be playing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Nevertheless, given the actor’s reputable skill in a mo-cap suit, he has also been on set advising the superhero sequel’s key players in the art of performance capture, and Serkis himself outlined his contribution in a recent interview with Empire.

“We did some work on Ultron. On the development of Ultron before James Spader came on board. In terms of movement styles: was he gonna be human-like? Was he going to be robot-like? So we worked with a bunch of different people, from body-popping experts to dancers, to this guy called Neil who’s nearly eight feet tall…”

Unsurprisingly, given his eye-catching work on the 20th Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes films, Serkis also had a thing or two »

Second Opinion – The Homesman (2014)

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Homesman (2014)

Directed by Tommy Lee Jones

Starring Tommy Lee JonesHilary Swank, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter, John Lithgow, Hailee Steinfield, Jesse Plemons, Tim Blake Nelson, William Fitchner, Meryl Streep

Synopsis:

Ably independent yet desperate to nurture a family, Mary Bee Cuddy agrees to transport three women maddened by trauma across the country, enlisting the help of an aged, stubborn drifter along the way.

Despite what Tommy Lee Jones might want you to think, his new film, The Homesman, is definitely a western.  And thank goodness, for the genre has been sorely lacking in reinforcements in recent years.  It’s long been a favourite genre of mine, from Peckinpah to The Coen Brothers, Leone to Tarantino, but if you were to sieve through, say, the last ten years for decent entries (excluding hybrids like Cowboys & Aliens or an Aussie western like The Proposition), what have you got?  True Grit? »

Cinderella's Dazzling Pictures Will Take Your Breath Away

25 November 2014 2:09 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Prepare to be very, very jealous of Lily James. The actress is portraying Cinderella in Disney's upcoming retelling of the classic fairy tale, and not only does she get to wear insanely gorgeous clothes, but she also gets to dance with Robb Stark, er, Richard Madden. The film's trailer made us all "ohhh" and "ahhh," and now these pictures are enough to make us swoon. James and Madden are beautiful, and Cate Blanchett is wickedly gorgeous as Cinderella's evil stepmother, Lady Tremaine. Could we be any more excited for March 13? Nope. »

Independent Spirit Awards Nominations 2015 Led by 'Boyhood,' 'Birdman'

25 November 2014 11:06 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Spirit Awards voted on by the members will be awarded in Santa Monica on February 21 and air live on IFC and will be rebroadcast at 10 pm.  As always, surprises abounded in this year's nominations announced on November 25. Who came out ahead and behind?  There's always some degree of overlap between the Spirits and the Oscars as winning momentum comes into play, right before the critics groups awards break in the coming weeks. Last year, "12 Years a Slave" took home the top feature prizes at both the Spirits and the Oscars, and actors Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey, Lupita Nyong'o and Jared Leto also collected two sets of awards. This can lead to a very dull Spirit show. This year the jury supplied some zingers, includingmicro-indie "Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter." That's their job. Besides Spirit frontrunners "Birdman" (six nominations including A.G. Inarritu, Michael Keaton, Emma Stone and Edward Norton) and »

24 November 2014 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cate Blanchett has spoken to Porter magazine about Emma Watson's "incredible" speech to the Un earlier this year.

Watson launched a gender equality campaign for the United Nations in her role as Goodwill Ambassador for Women in September.

Speaking to Porter, Blanchett said: "I was so f**king proud of Emma Watson's speech at the Un.

"It was brilliant, such an incredible use of her airspace, and really passionate. It was fantastic."

Speaking about how Watson was targeted by hackers threatening to leak a series of purported nude pictures in a direct response to her Un speech, Blanchett said: "It's horrendous. But there's hope.

"There are a lot of things happening in an international sphere, and there are enough women with enough clout to make those shifts happen. Enough is enough. And I hope the Emma Watsons of this world are going to say, 'F**k it'."
