More "Trainspotting" In The Works

16 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle, a sequel to "Trainspotting" is on track for development, with a new screenplay by Oscar-nominated writer John Hodge

Boyle intends to reunite the first film's original cast of Ewan McGregor, Ewan Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kevin McKidd and Kelly Macdonald.

"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "There’s always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2', if John can produce a decent enough script. I don’t think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. 

"I think they’ll want to know that the parts are good so they don’t feel like they are letting anyone down. The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to »

Storybrooke is about to get Frozen. In a new Once Upon a Time season-four teaser exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, Frozen's Elsa (Georgina Haig) passes through the town's landmark hangouts (Mr. Gold's shop, Granny's diner), leaving her chilly mark wherever she goes.

True Horror: Real Life Horror Stories On Screen

18 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Thanks to a somewhat suspect series of sub-genres born out of horror cinema’s tendency to descend into an exploitative pit of B-Movie mediocrity, to many the genre at large has lost its bite over recent decades. Horror fans stand shaking atop a perilous precipice, debating whether to plummet into one of James Wan’s undeniably entertaining demon infested households – littered with creepy kids and their even creepier fondness for jump-scare inducing toy antiquities – or to skip dinner and experience a Smörgåsbord of torture porn delicacies. Thankfully studios aren’t as willing to give Eli Roth money these days and this ugly trend has been somewhat curbed – minus the upcoming The Green Inferno, which, in all fairness, looks rather tasty. Also, don’t forget the wealth of found footage which lay hidden in darkened attics and dank cellars, because in an age of Hi-def, Blu-ray movies and instant streaming services, »

16 August 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

As previously reported, E! Online delivered their latest spoiler chat session and dished out new spoilers for the upcoming "Once Upon A Time" season 4 in regards to Belle and Gold aka Rumpelstiltskin. It turns out that we'll see Gold and Belle be content in the very first episode. However, after that, things are going to take a downward spiral. In their spoiler chat reveal, they stated when asked if Bella and Gold will be happy: "Don't bet on it! Robert Carlyle (Gold) teases that they'll be content "maybe in the first episode, but then that's it." Wah! Emilie De Ravin (Belle) points out that Gold is "bipolar" and we shouldn't start thinking he's a good guy. Double wah! Oh, and I have no idea what this means, but when I asked what the trending hashtag might be for the season premiere, Robert said "#Dance." So clearly, Gold will twerk. Duh. »

Just because Once Upon a Time is a show about fairytale characters doesn't mean that the relationships can all have that fairytale happy ending so fast. Uneasy times are coming for a couple of relationships this season, as the cast previewed at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Jennifer Morrison, Colin O'Donoghue, Robert Carlyle and Emilie de Ravin sat down with reporters to discuss their characters' relationships. The honeymoon's not going to last for long for Rumple and Belle, and Emma and Hook's relationship can be described only as a Facebook status at the moment. »

'Once Upon A Time's' Robert Carlyle and Emilie De Ravin muse Elsa's origins

29 July 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - As 'Once Upon A Time' gears up for its fourth season, the cast made an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con to tease the future of Storybrooke's citizens. Newlyweds Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) joked about their fallout when season three secrets are inevitably revealed. "I could just take them off [Belle's stilettos] and use them as weapons," de Ravin said. But when it comes to the biggest secret — the arrival of "Frozen's" Elsa — even the stars are in the dark. Carlyle admitted Rumple's history with Arendelle's queen is a mystery. "There's a lot of things in that vault I had no idea about. I genuinely don't know. Obviously he knows her, she knows him […] but I don't yet know what that relationship is," he said. On the subject of Rumpelstiltskin's tendency to keep volatile things under lock and key, de Ravin has a plan to keep »

“Both of us, Elsa,” Anna corrects. Elsa says she has a surprise for her sister, and Anna admits that “surprises tend to be hit and miss in this family.”

Additionally, beloved characters from Disney animated films have appeared on the show: Mulan (Jamie Chung), Belle (Emilie de Ravin), and Ariel (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), just to name a few.

Emma Thompson Gets Tacky and Frumpy in These Amazing Set Photos

3 July 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Emma Thompson's name conjures images of poise and grace, bringing to mind her sincere and moving performances in films like "Sense and Sensibility" and "The Remains of the Day."  But, of course, the actress seems just as comfortable whipping off her spike heels at the Golden Globes or donning a fake nose and a snaggletooth for a role like "Nanny McPhee." Thompson is currently at work on "The Legend of Barney Thomson," actor Robert Carlyle's directorial debut based on a novel by Douglas Lindsay about a barber in Glasgow who lives a dull, pointless life until he crosses paths with an unstable serial killer. Carlyle plays the titular character, with Emma Thompson playing his dowdy mother.  (Yet another actress plays far above her actual age.) Based on these on-set photos, all we can say is that it looks like she's going to knock this one out of the park. »

Forgotten Flick Ravenous Is the Best-Ever Manifest Destiny Cannibal Comedy

17 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Ravenous is a film-shaped UFO: It's so delightfully weird that its very existence defies logic. Imagine a film that makes A Modest Proposal–style satire out of Dracula's gothic horror tropes in the spaghetti western milieu of The Great Silence. It's a pitch-black comedy about Manifest Destiny and cannibal frontiersmen.

Set in the western Sierra Nevadas during the Mexican-American War, Ravenous pits the inhabitants of Fort Spencer, a bunch of Peckinpah-esque misfits reluctantly led by battle-traumatized Boyd (Guy Pearce), against devilishly charming Colqhoun (Robert Carlyle), the sole survivor of a Donner Party–like massacre. The film ends with a drawn-out, quasi-homoerotic murder-suicide precipitated by a man-size bear tr »
