just now | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

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, »

Elle Fanning cast as Frankenstein author Mary Shelley for A Storm In the Clouds

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

Why I'm Not Seeing "Lucy"

30 July 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"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 »

Directed by Robert Stromberg, Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie (The Tourist), Elle Fanning (Super 8), Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Imelda Staunton (The Pirates! Band of Misfits), Miranda Richardson (The Hours), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), and Lesley Manville (Romeo and Juliet). Read our reviews here, here and here.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Talks about Self Empowerment

27 July 2014 11:57 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

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? »

Box Office Report: Scarlett Johansson Powers Lucy to #1

27 July 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The year of ScarJo continued in high fashion this weekend, with the action-thriller Lucy surpassing expectations and reaching the #1 spot at the North American box office. Taking in an estimated $44 million from 3,173 theatres, Lucy became the actor’s biggest opening for a non-Marvel film. That is also a larger opening than Salt ($36 million), which starred kick-ass heroine Angelina Jolie and opened in late July, 2010.

With Johansson receiving a lot of acclaim this year for her roles in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Her and Under the Skin, a lack of options for female moviegoers and a dazzling trailer, Lucy was expected to open at the top – but not to this extent. With competition from Hercules and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, mixed reviews and an R rating, an opening over $40 million is a big surprise.

Lucy is the fourth original film from Universal to open at #1 this year – after Lone Survivor, »

How ‘The Avengers’ & ‘Lucy’ Turned Scarlett Johansson Into an Action Superstar

27 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Donning a dodgy Russian accent and a skin-tight, leather suit as “The Avengers’” Black Widow is reaping dividends for Scarlett Johansson.

The actress may have benefited more from her work on the Marvel movies than any other member of the superhero ensemble save for Robert Downey Jr., whose work as Iron Man transformed him into perhaps the biggest box office star on the planet. Evidence of Johansson’s raised profile was on display this weekend, as the actress powered “Lucy” to a $44 million debut, the third biggest female-driven action opening of all time.

First and second place belong to “Wanted” and “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” both star Angelina Jolie, who may have a worthy successor in the come-hither glances and gunplay department in Johansson.

“‘Avengers’ turned her into an action star and that’s part of the reason ‘Lucy’ had so much success,” said Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations. »

Weekend Box Office: Lucy Shines with $44 Million; Hercules Takes Second with $29 Million

27 July 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2014’s summer box office got a rare ray of sunshine this weekend thanks to Lucy.  The sci-fi/action pic easily claimed first place with an estimated $44 million from 3,173 locations – the highest debut for star Scarlett Johansson outside of her Marvel Universe appearances.   Hercules had to settle for a second place, though the action/adventure’s estimated $29 million from 3,595 locations also beat expectations.  Title Weekend Total 1.  Lucy $44,025,000 $44 2.  Hercules $29,000,000 $29 3.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes $16,400,000 $172 4.  The Purge: Anarchy $9,896,000 $51.2 5.  Planes: Fire & Rescue $9,303,000 $35.1 6.  Sex Tape $5,975,000 $26.8 7.  Transformers: Age of Extinction $4,600,000 $236.3 8.  And So It Goes $4,552,000 $4.5 9.  Tammy $3,400,000 $78.1 10.  A Most Wanted Man $2,717,000 $2.7   Full story after the jump. In this summer of marginal performers any film that opens significantly higher than expected is cause for celebration.  So break out the party hats for Universal’s Lucy, which managed to double its pre-release projections and make Hercules look like kind of a wimp in the process. Originally slated to open on August eighth, »

Box Office: ‘Lucy’ Outmuscles ‘Hercules’ With $44 Mil.

27 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scarlett Johansson overpowered Dwayne Johnson at the box office, as “Lucy” racked up $44 million compared to “Hercules’” $29 million bow this weekend.

It’s a big win for Johansson, solidifying her as an action star to rival Angelina Jolie. “Lucy” ranks as her largest non-Marvel opening, edging out 2009′s “He’s Just Not That Into You” ($27.8 million). It’s been a very good few months for Johansson, who scored critical raves for playing a sultry, Siri-like voice in “Her” and a conflicted alien seductress in “Under the Skin,” and made bank reprising her role as Black Widow in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

Her bankability is beyond reproach and her street cred is beyond comparison,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “She can bounce gracefully between indie movies and esoteric movies and then rise to the top box office charts.”

Universal acquired “Lucy” for $40 million, which makes its opening »
