When I think of Miles Teller, the first thing I think of is definitely not world-champion, Italian-American boxer Vinny Pazienza, or more commonly known as Vinny Paz. I am not saying he is wrong for the part. It just makes me do a double take at my computer screen when I read it. However, the guy is extremely talented, so I look forward to seeing it. And I will see it because Bleed for This, the Ben Younger directed film that features this performance, was picked up by Open Road for a whopping $4 million. That's a lot of doughnuts. You might have to freeze some so they don't go bad. This purchase comes after studios were shown a mere twelve minute sizzle reel at Cannes, as the film is still in post-production. Open Road's big pickup at last year's Cannes was Nightcrawler, so here's hoping they are two-for-two with quality. »

After a dramatic all-night bidding war, Tom Ortenberg confirms, Open Road sealed the deal for writer/director Ben Younger's market title "Bleed for This," starring Miles Teller as world champion fighter Vinny Pazienza and Aaron Eckhart's trainer who brought him back to the ring after a nearly fatal car wreck. Cannes buyers were shown a 12-minute promo reel for the film, now in post-production, before Open Road threw down a reported $4 million. The distributor scooped "Nightcrawler" out of the market last year and successfully netted a writing Oscar nomination. Pazienza suffered a broken neck shortly after winning the 1991 Jr Middleweight World title and resumed training soon after, despite doctors' orders. This could be a "Rocky" style comeback story and a juicy follow-up for "Whiplash" star Teller, who had to get in fighting shape. Kate Sagal will play his mother. Ciaran Hinds co-stars. "Bleed for This" is produced by Bruce Cohen. »

Will the Mad Men finale answer the question of the falling man in the opening credits, or is that imagery purely symbolic (I believe it’s the latter)? The upcoming film Hitman: Agent 47 has decided to provide its own answer by releasing a viral video. Personally, I think it would be pretty funny if we got a series of videos that kept playing off TV shows with Agent 47 randomly popping up. Check out the Hitman: Agent 47 viral video below. The film opens August 21th, and stars Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto, Hannah Ware, Thomas Kretschmann, and Ciaran Hinds. For all of our Hitman: Agent 47 coverage, click here. Via Nerdist. Here’s the official synopsis for Hitman: Agent 47: Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai at the Oscars Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai on the Academy Awards' Red Carpet Pictured above are Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, which took place on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Two years ago, an Anglo-Indian-American co-production, Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire became not only one of the season's biggest sleeper hits, but also the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner. Dev Patel and Freida Pinto starred. Curiously, some have complained that Slumdog Millionaire was just a less interesting rehash of higher-quality Bollywood musicals and dramas that have received relatively little play outside South Asian communities around the globe. Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai movies The son of Indian cinema legend Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan has been featured in nearly 50 films. Among them are: Dhoom (2004). Director: Sanjay Gadhvi. Cast: Abhishek Bachchan. Uday Chopra. John Abraham. Esha Deol. »

Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano, Adam Driver, and Ciaran Hinds also star in the film and video has emerged from a press event for the film which Garfield describes as "deep and difficult material, timeless, and huge in scope, huge in emotion."

'Munich' movie cover 'Munich' movie review: Steven Spielberg tackles political time-space continuum in wildly uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller Alternately intriguing and irritating, thought-provoking and banal, subtle and patronizing, the biggest surprise about Steven Spielberg's Munich is that it – however grudgingly – works. The film, which Spielberg himself has referred to as a "prayer for peace," follows five men contracted by the Israeli government to avenge the massacre of that country's athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Sizable chunks of this political thriller with a Message (capital "M") are simplistically written, clumsily acted, and handled with the director's notoriously heavy touch, but the old adage – blood begets blood – even if somewhat muddled, is too timely not to make an impact. Complex 'Munich' movie plot Based on George Jonas' 1984 book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, whose veracity has been questioned in some quarters, Munich begins as »

HBO has released three behind-the-scenes featurettes for the season 5 opener of Game of Thrones, with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss taking us ‘Inside the Episode’, A Song of Ice and Fire creator George R.R. Martin discussing Maggy’s prophecy and its implications for Cersei, and Kit Harington and Ciaran Hinds discussing Mance Rayder…

Season five opens on a flashback, the first one ever in Game of Thrones. These opening prologues have prized place in George R. R. Martin’s books, either introducing new characters or telling self-contained stories that become significant later on. They help ease you back into his gory, kinky world.
The flashback is Cersei’s (Lena Headey), who will become an even more central character in season five (the fourth book, on which her storyline in this series is based, is the first one with chapters written from her perspective). It shows a witch telling a young Cersei her future, that “another queen, younger and more beautiful” would replace her. Which explains all the Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) hate.

Game of Thrones, Season 5, Episode 1: “The Wars to Come”
Directed by Michael Slovis
Written by David Benioff and Db Weiss
Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on HBO
After four extraordinary seasons, we’ve come to expect great things from HBO’s flagship series – shocking betrayals, strategic realignments, reversals of fortune, impressive world-building, damsels in distress, femme fatales, epic battles, well choreographed action, blood, death, sex, black magic, dragons and lots of nudity in between the dirty politics. “The Wars to Come” (a line heard several times throughout the episode) was a solid, modest season opener, but as with every season premiere, there seems to be something lacking. The cast of Game of Thrones is comprised of some of the most talented actors on the small screen, and over the years we’ve been blessed with the likes of Charles Dance, Peter Dinklage, Diana Rigg and Sean Bean, to name »
“The future is shit, just like the past.”
Tyrion Lannister punctuates his brief thesis on the value of life by bending over to vomit. In an episode that begins with a young Cersei slogging through what looks like a mixture of mud and offal and ends with a man being burned alive after leading his people out of the frozen north, it’s a point that bears thinking on. The future isn’t better just because it’s new, and the past isn’t rosy just because it’s over. (Though no matter which set of sins he’s mired in remembering, Peter Dinklage can still crack a great one-liner).
Dwelling on the inherent crappiness of life isn’t exactly a guaranteed home run in terms of dramatic pacing, but “The Wars to Come” handles it without devolving into maudlin tears or too much domino-setting. That isn’t to say the episode crackles, »

The weather may be warming up, but in Westeros, winter is definitely upon us as the fantasy drama phenomenon returns for its fifth season.
Jon Snow (Kit Harington) becomes an intermediary between King of the Wildlings Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and claimant-to-the-throne Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane). Meanwhile Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) adjusts to his new surroundings and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) grapples with power.

See you later, Mance Rayder. The wildling king and former Night's Watchman said buh bye in tonight's episode when he was burned at the stake for his crimes by Stannis Baratheon and the Night's Watch. While we fortunately didn't have to watch anyone actually burn alive since the ever-noble Jon Snow put him out of his misery with an arrow, we did have to watch him die with the knowledge that he could have avoided death all together. Earlier in the episode, Stannis had sent Jon to present Mance (Ciaran Hinds) with a deal: bow down to Stannis and have the wildlings join his army and live, or be burned. Mance was just a little too proud to agree to such terms, so his »
