Welcome to August folks. Now that we’re well into the second half of 2014 and reaching the end of the summer, it’s time for me to come to you again with some new and (hopefully) even more up to date Oscar predictions. I sincerely hope that they’ll represent another bit of a change from speculation on towards educated guesswork now that awards season is fast approaching us. We still have a long way to go in the season overall, don’t me wrong, and these new predictions will likely be wrong more than right in the end anyway, but with each passing update I’m getting attempting to figure it all out and get more and more confident in backing particular horses as opposed to other ones that I’ve mentioned previously. If that sounds a bit repetitive to you, well…that’s still kind of the nature of the beast for this. »

Disney has announced the Maleficent Blu-ray release date as November 4, a little over five full months after the Angelina Jolie-starrer began its impressive worldwide box office run. Chalk up that success as the reason Disney is taking their time delivering Maleficent to home video.
Maleficent features Jolie as the iconic witch from Sleeping Beauty, and also stars Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville and Brenton Thwaites. To date the film has earned just over $716 million at the global box office and by far and away has been the most commercially successful film of Angelina Jolie's career.
The Blu-ray edition of Maleficent will come packed with the film on DVD and Digital HD, both of which will also make their debuts on November 4 so Disney is not employing an early digital window. The film will be presented in 2.4:1 1080p video and 7.1 DTS-hd Master Audio. »
Angelina Jolie is a very lucky lady! The actress recently revealed to Australia's TV Week magazine that she and the Brad Pitt sent handwritten love letters to one another while they were filming movies in different parts of the world. Jolie -- who was directing "Unbroken" at the time -- was in Australia, while Brad was in London filming the war flick "Fury." "He was supportive from a distance, and it was quite romantic in a way," she told the mag. "We decided to be of that time, when we could imagine he was in the European theater and I was in the Pacific theater, and we wrote handwritten letters to each other that were very connecting for us, thinking of the people that were separated for months, if not years, at a time back then," she added. Now if that's not one of the most romantic things you've ever heard, »

As a weary seventeen year old, budding writer Mary Shelley would begin writing what would become one of the most iconic gothic horror novels of all time, Frankenstein. Now THR is reporting that Elle Fanning has been cast in A Storm In the Clouds which will tell the story of the author (then Mary Wollstonecraft) and her engrossing love affair with poet Percy Shelley. From early indications it seems like it’s been pitched as a romantic period drama about young love rather than an in depth look into the inspiration and origins behind Frankenstein, although it’s highly likely that the film will tackle that subject to some extent.
Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadjda) is on board as director with Ezra Miller (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower) rumoured to be in the running to play Percy. Al-Mansour is Saudi Arabia’s first female film director whose only other previous feature »

"Lucy" will be discussed soon on the podcast but at least one member of Scarjo-loving Tfe refuses to see it. Here's Matthew Eng to tell you why. - Editor
I don't care if Lucy is every bit the gloriously silly and shamelessly outré action fireworks show that gung-ho summer audiences have made into a "surprise hit." I care even less that Luc Besson has managed to curb his own gonzo cheese-fest tendencies to a running time of less than 90 minutes, compared to the ceaselessly spinning tops and chiseled self-mythologizing of every Christopher Nolan movie post-Insomnia. And, though it's been tempting, I finally don't care that Besson and Co. have seemingly put the newly-rejuvenated Scarlett Johansson (so good in Under the Skin; so great in Don Jon) on a pedestal of full-out Film Goddess proportions, in a genre where movies in which women are front and center and not merely »

Maggie Gyllenhaal is a busy working mom.and she wouldn't have it any other way.
The actress, 36, covers Modern Luxury's August issue of Angeleno, where she gets candid about her happy home life with husband Peter Sarsgaard, 43, and their two daughters, Ramona, 7, and Gloria, 2.
"Being a parent, you have to sacrifice things, and you have to ask your kids to sacrifice things," says the star, who lives in Brooklyn. "If you are Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, you can have that power to say, 'Yes, I want to do that movie, but I need to wait until July,' but we don't. So both of us have had to sacrifice things we wanted to do many times. But that's what it means to be in a family and be in a relationship."
Over the years, Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard co-starred in two off-Broadway Chekhov adaptations. Was it the couple's goal to star in the same projects? »
