Luke Evans on 'The Hobbit,' Deleted Scenes, and Dracula's Next Move (Exclusive)

6 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In movies as furiously energetic and visually embellished as Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies," it's hard to single out a specific performance or actor, who could be deemed for future super-stardom. But that's exactly what has happened with Luke Evans, the charismatic British actor who essays the character of Bard the Bowman in Jackson's "Hobbit" trilogy, which finally wraps up with "Battle of the Five Armies," a film that kicks off with a thrilling sequence pitting Evans and his son against the horrible dragon Smaug (voiced deliciously by Benedict Cumberbatch).

Evans is a lovely guy, and we got a chance to sit down with him in London, during the final big press push for the final movie of the trilogy. We talk about what it was like finally seeing the sequence with Smaug, what he'd like to see in the extended edition of the movie, »

More Cast Added To Syfy’s Childhood’s End

17 December 2014 1:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the task of turning Arthur C. Clarke’s beloved 1953 science fiction novel, Childhood’s End, into a six hour miniseries seems ambitious, the Syfy project is now gathering momentum as it prepares to go before the cameras. Adapted by Matthew Graham (Life On Mars), with the helm to be taken by Nick Hurran (Doctor Who), the television event has now added Daisy Betts (Shutter) and Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) to a cast that already features Charles Dance (Game Of Thrones), Mike Vogel (Under The Dome), Ashley Zukerman (Terra Nova), Osy Ikhile (The Anomaly) and Yael Stone (Orange Is The New Black).

The unsettling tale chronicles events after a seemingly peaceful alien invasion of earth occurs, resulting in the population eventually residing in harmony under the mysterious, apparently benevolent Overlords. The alien liaison for earth, Karellen, communicates only with Ricky Stormgren – immediately making him the most influential human on the planet. »

17 December 2014 9:26 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Syfy has brought aboard Julian McMahon for the upcoming six-hour “Childhood’s End” miniseries, which is slated to premiere in 2015.

The “Nip/Tuck” actor will star opposite Daisy Betts (“Shutter”), the cabler announced Wednesday.

“Childhood’s End,” adapted from Arthur C. Clarke’s 1953 novel, follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords, who begin decades of apparent utopia under indirect alien rule, at the cost of human identity and culture.

McMahon stars as Rupert Boyce, an American entrepreneur, and Betts will play Ellie, an arts graduate engaged to Ricky Stormgren (Mike Vogel), the most influential person in the world.

McMahon and Betts join previously announced cast members Vogel, Ashley Zukerman, Charles Dance, Osy Ikhile and Yael Stone.

Watch: How Benedict Cumberbatch's Performance Drives 'The Imitation Game'

12 December 2014 12:04 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Of all the performances I've seen on the screen this year, there is little doubt in my mind that Benedict Cumberbatch's work as mathematician-turned-codebreaker Alan Turing in The Imitation Game is among the best. I'm certainly not the only one with this opinion, and it's clear The Weinstein Co. recognizes what it has in its hands with both Cumberbatch's performance and the film itself as today The Hollywood Reporter provides us an exclusive featurette in which the cast and crew of the film, including writer Graham Moore and co-star Keira Knightley, talk about the film and Cumberbatch's ability to bring the audience into Turing's story. "His life has suddenly become this sort of real life spy thriller that he's living through, and so we wanted the film to sort of experientially put the audience inside Turing's head," Moore says in the clip, and if there's any one aspect of the film I appreciate most, »

Interview: Morten Tyldum, Graham Moore of ‘The Imitation Game’

11 December 2014 10:49 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – Telling the story of Alan Turing – the British closeted gay man who broke a Nazi code in World War II, saving millions of lives – was put upon the talented shoulders of two disparate individuals. Screenwriter Graham Moore – from Chicago – and Norwegian director Morten Tyldum collaborated on “The Imitation Game.”

It was a bit of luck and happenstance that brought the two creators together (see below), but their passion for properly vetting the complex story and distilling it to the audience was a wise and loving process. Graham Moore was born in the South Side of Chicago, but knew of Turing from his other life in computers and science. Morten Tyldum is a notable filmmaker from Norway, who was looking for his first American project. They were supported by the amazing performance of Benedict Cumberbatch in his portrayal of Alan Turing, and a host of other fine British actors, including Keira Knightley. »

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

10 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.

Here's where a new running feature comes into play:

As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

How to be SAG Snubbed Even When You're Nominated

10 December 2014 7:06 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As is our annual tradition we like to peruse the credits of the SAG Ensemble nods to see who got left out despite their film's nomination. The Film Experience started this kind of analysis ten years ago when The Aviator had some really dumb exclusions and inclusions but lots of other sites now cover the injustice. We never get credit for starting this line of Norma Rae righteous anger but, that said, at least a lot of people have it now.

Did SAG think her face looked like she'd licked a homelessman's ass?

If you aren't familiar SAG uses a system whereby only actors with solitary title cards are official nominees for the Cast category. This means if you are famous in a bit part and have a good agent you are more likely to be an official nominee than the unknown who delivered a better performance in possibly a »

Box Office Democracy: The Imitation Game

9 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent Comicmix news »

Benedict Cumberbatch month rolls on here at Box Office Democracy. Last week we had his turn as an obnoxious egotistical wolf and next week we’ll have him as the voice of a megalomaniacal dragon but this week we get to see him act with his whole body in The Imitation Game. Finally we get a big screen look at the face that launched a thousand tumblrs. I don’t know if it’s overexposure or the breaking of some kind of spell but I fear I’m turning on Cumberbatch and at just the worst point in his career, certainly as far as the fine people at Marvel are concerned.

I’m sure Alan Turing was a fascinating person but I sincerely hope the people who knew and loved him would say more about his character than, “probably two parts BBC’s Sherlock and one part Sheldon Cooper” but »
