Time Machine: Best Picture Nominee Co-Star Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet

1 May 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »

Time Machine: Paltrow Silvery Oscar Dress at 83rd Academy Awards

1 May 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

Leonardo DiCaprio Makes First Red Carpet Appearance of 2015 at Armani's 40th Anniversary Bash

1 May 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Leo is back! Leonardo DiCaprio made his 2015 red carpet debut on Thursday night at Giorgio Armani's 40th Anniversary reception in Milan, Italy.  The "Wolf of Wall Street" hunk -- who hasn't attended a public event since September 2014 -- looked dapper in a classic navy blue suit with a gray tie, but his bushy beard made him almost unrecognizable among the stylish guests. We're missing the actor's baby face, aren't you?! Leo celebrated the milestone with the famed fashion designer, posing for pictures alongside other A-listers, including Cate Blanchett, Hilary Swank, Pierce Brosnan, Tina Turner and Sophia Loren. Another big star to make a rare appearance in honor of her favorite designer was Janet Jackson, who has largely stayed out of the spotlight since moving to Saudi Arabia with husband Wissam Al Mana in 2012.  Armani took to Twitter to share a snapshot with the 48-year-old singer, who looked gorgeous in »

Best Looks of the Week: Cate Blanchett's Summer White Suit, Louise Roe's Pink Frock & More!

1 May 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If there's one thing these women have in common it's that they're all class acts. Oh, and that whole impeccable style thing! This week, our eyes were on Cate Blanchett, who wowed at the Giorgio Armani 40th Anniversary Silos Opening in—what else?—Armani Privé on April 30. (So this is how you do summer white.) Salma Hayek brought the drama in an Elie Saab ball gown at the premiere of her new film The Prophet on April 27 in Beirut, Lebanon. She finished her look with a matching handbag and stunning diamond jewelery. In the pretty in pink arena, Louise Roe, well, shut it down: The style maven's Monique Lhuillier midi (which she complemented with a chic vintage statement clutch) »

Rooney Mara Falls Head Over Heels For Cate Blanchett In First Carol Trailer

29 April 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it underwent some casting changes in the early stages – namely The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‘s Rooney Mara replacing Mia Wasikowska  as Therese – Todd Haynes’ romantic drama Carol is nearing its premiere at the Cannes film festival next month, and an early, admittedly low quality trailer for the adaptation has surfaced.

Based on Patricia Highsmith’s erotic novel The Price of Salt (also referred to as Carol), Mara’s young female store clerk is essentially the crux of the narrative. Dreaming of a life beyond menial duties as a department store clerk, Therese falls head over heels for an older, married woman (Cate Blanchett) ensnared in a loveless marriage. Situated in New York circa 1950, Haynes’ feature has been described as a tale of tragic love and lust, and one look at the debut footage above will give you a sense of the emotional tone residing beneath the old-school aesthetic. »

'Ted 2', 'Carol', 'Results' and 7 Other Films Get R-Ratings in Today's MPAA Bulletin

28 April 2015 3:47 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ten films in today's MPAA ratings bulletin and ten R-ratings beginning with Todd Haynes' Carol starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, which will be heading to Cannes before hitting theaters later this year, most likely late as I expect the Weinsteins to milk this one, especially if it plays well on the Croisette. We also have Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2, which, unsurprisingly, received and R-rating, alongside a slew of smaller features including Results starring Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders; Samba starring Omar Sy and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Robert Duvall's Wild Horses, which Duvall directed and stars in alongside James Franco, Josh Hartnett, Luciana Duvall, Adriana Barraza and Jim Parrack. Check out the complete bulletin below. Carol Rated R For a scene of sexuality/nudity and brief language. Release Date: TB 2015 In The Courtyard Rated R For drug use and language. Last Shift Rated R For bloody horror violence, »

Anna Kendrick loves the maternity clothes she wears for The Hollars movie

28 April 2015 2:11 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Anna Kendrick loves wearing maternity trousers. The 'Into The Woods' star has confessed her favorite item of clothing is a pair of pregnancy pants she was given while filming the new comedy drama 'The Hollars' - in which she plays an expectant mother called Rebecca. When asked to name the best thing she owns, Anna said: ''I was given a pair of maternity pants on the set of The Hollars that we didn't end up using. They're amazing. So comfortable.'' And when she isn't sporting maternity wear, the brunette beauty still opts to keep her look casual. Asked to describe the one outfit she would wear for the rest of her life, Anna said: ''A big, fuzzy cashmere J.Crew sweater, jeans and Converse - so at least I'd be comfortable.'' However, the 29-year-old actress also enjoys dressing up for high profile events and admires fellow »

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

Elizabeth Olsen Reveals Why She Went Naked On Camera, Calls Mary-Kate and Ashley "Inspiring Women"

23 April 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Elizabeth Olsen isn't afraid to strip down ... if it's the right part. The 26-year-old actress graces the cover of the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, where she opens up about her decision to go naked on the big screen. In fact, Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett's infamous nude scenes made the young star feel more comfortable shedding her clothes in 2011's "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and Spike Lee's "Oldboy" remake in 2013. "I love Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett," she tells the mag. "I remember watching 'Holy Smoke' and thinking that it was so reassuring to see a young Kate doing something that was so bold in so many ways." "I thought to myself, 'Ok, so it doesn't destroy your career if you appear nude or take risks'," she says, adding, "because not everyone in my family and group of friends thought it was the best idea »

Elizabeth Olsen: 'It doesn't destroy your career if you appear nude'

23 April 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Elizabeth Olsen has a message for fellow actresses starting out in Hollywood - it doesn't destroy your career if you appear naked on screen.

The 26-year-old star told Net-a-Porter's The Edit that she took inspiration from a young Kate Winslet in choosing to reveal all for a part.

"I love Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett," she explained. "I remember watching Holy Smoke and thinking that it was so reassuring to see a young Kate doing something that was so bold in so many ways.

"I thought to myself, 'Ok, so it doesn't destroy your career if you appear nude or take risks', because not everyone in my family and group of friends thought it was the best idea to be naked in a movie.

"There are actresses, young and old, who have decided never to do that and they become those examples people talk to you about, [but] there are times »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Blu-ray Review

22 April 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Peter Jackson

Starring: Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen, Evangeline Lilly, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee

Running Time: 144 Minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: Recruiting the Five Armies, Completing Middle Earth, ‘The Last Goodbye’ Music Video, New Zealand: Home of Middle Earth Part 3.

When it was originally announced The Hobbit would be divided into three films, I wasn’t sure why it was necessary and after a long year wait for the finale since the vivacious Smaug outing, we head into The Battle Of The Five Armies and on reflection… I feel despondently justified.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is not a bad movie but after the epic build-up in The Desolation Of Smaug, we’re thrown bang in the middle of the action and, for me, it doesn’t work very well. It’s not that the spectacle isn’t glorious but »

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ Blu-ray Review

20 April 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Dean O’Gorman, Aidan Turner, John Callen, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sylvester McCoy, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Manu Bennett | Written by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro | Directed by Peter Jackson

When The Hobbit was announced I’m sure nobody would have thought it would be three movies long, J. R. R.Tolkien fit the whole story into one book, and even that wasn’t very long.  Here we are though with the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies which in theory should be the last Lord of the Rings movie Peter Jackson makes.  Unless he can pull more tales of Middle-earth out of the appendices of course (and I’m sure some of us hope he could).
