Monthly Must See: David Mackenzie's 'Starred Up' with Jack O'Connell

6 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There are prison movies, and then there are prison movies. David Mackenzie's Starred Up is a harrowing, violent, bold new take on the "prison movie" that is worth your time to take a look at, playing in theaters now and also available on VOD. The film also introduces the astonishing Jack O'Connell (now well-known thanks to Yann Demange's '71 and 300: Rise of an Empire, plus he stars in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken), who stars as the lead character Eric alongside Ben Mendelsohn, another badass we've already seen in the likes of Animal Kingdom, Killing Them Softly, The Dark Knight Rises and The Place Beyond the Pines. Together they take on an entire prison in Starred Up, and it's a hell of a ride. It's our next Monthly Must See film. Deep down at its core, Starred Up is much more than just a prison movie, and like »

New International Trailer for Stephen Daldry's 'Trash', UK Release Date Set for January 2015

8 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On the heels of the new picture from Serena we have a new trailer for another film that would seem like a solid Oscar contender and yet we've heard nothing about a stateside release. Set to premiere at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival at the end of September, followed by an October 9 release in Brazil, we have a new trailer for Stephen Daldry's Trash. Trash features Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura in the middle of a story following three boys (Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein) who scrape a living by picking through trash. One day they find a leather bag, the contents of which plunge them into a terrifying adventure, pitting their wits against corruption and authority to right a wrong. This is the second trailer we've seen for the film, but this one at least has subtitles as we now have an »

'True Blood's Pam Lives On in 'Once Upon a Time'

10 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"True Blood" is over, but we'll be getting a dose of Pam's biting sass thanks to "Once Upon a Time," the ABC show about a small town full of characters from fairy tales.

Kristin Bauer van Straten is returning to the show to reprise her role as Maleficent, the purple-clad baddie who was supposedly offed at the end of the first season. Guess Maleficent didn't meet the True Death, eh? Van Straten's character will reportedly have a major arc, so we're hoping to see lots more fabulous villainy, and perhaps even more about Maleficent's life before she broke bad.

This isn't the first time that "Once" has gotten all Disneyfied on us. There's also going to be a "Frozen" arc in the ABC show, with Elizabeth Lail as Anna and Georgina Haig as icy Queen Elsa. The real question is whether this Maleficent will have more in common with »

Next Big Thing Jack O’Connell on Nude Scenes, Starred Up, and Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken

26 August 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you recognize Jack O'Connell as the rascally Cook from the British series Skins, then congratulations: You got in on the ground floor, because soon enough, everybody's going to be asking who the 24-year-old actor is. The cornerstone of O'Connell's rising Hollywood profile will come this Christmas when he stars in the highly anticipated WWII drama Unbroken, directed by Angelina Jolie, but in the meantime, you can check him out in this week's gritty British prison drama Starred Up, which makes good use of O'Connell's bravado and tightly coiled intensity. (Two traits he shares with Jolie, in addition to their plentiful tattoos.) Last week, the English actor rang up Vulture to talk about how far he's willing to go onscreen.A lot of actors would have been nervous to get as naked as you do in Starred Up — both emotionally and physically.It's potentially scary, but in this film, the »

Vin Diesel Just Totally Changed The Ice Bucket Challenge In Honor Of Groot

25 August 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We've brought you the best of the celeb-centered Als Ice Bucket Challenge vids. But Vin Diesel has taken the challenge in a new direction. See for yourself with the video above: After being challenged by Guardians of the Galaxy helmer James Gunn, Diesel, who memorably gave voice to the film's sentient tree, demanded his director plant a tree for Groot. But don.t sweat it, the Fast and Furious frontman didn't welch on the ice-bucket dumping aspect of the challenge. Here he is committing, and then passing on the dare to some big, big names. Yup. Vin Diesel has dared First Lady Michelle Obama, A-lister Angelina Jolie, and controversial Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to take the Als Ice Bucket Challenge. Mark it down, as I'm betting this will be the only opportunity for those three to every share the same sentence. James Gunn accepted the Groot challenge on Twitter, »

New Images Of David Oyelowo As Martin Luther King Jr. In Civil Rights Biopic Selma

25 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After racially-charged unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, made headlines this summer, there’s no denying that civil rights biopic Selma is going to strike a chord with many when it releases this winter. Starring David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King Jr. and Carmen Ejogo as his wife Carmen Scott, the Ava DuVernay-directed pic centers on the influential march from Selma to Montgomery, which paved the way for the 1965 passage of the Voting Rights Act.

Tom Wilkinson, Andre Holland, Omar J. Dorsey, Tessa Thompson, Tim Roth, Wendell Pierce and Colman Domingo all co-star.

Whether the inspiring, resonant story at the heart of Selma will make it an Oscar contender remains to be seen. The latter half of 2014 will be filled with similarly high-profile biopics, many of which are already earning awards buzz. In the coming months, Tim Burton will unveil Big Eyes, about Margaret Keane and her husband Walter; Angelina Jolie »

182 days 'til Oscar

24 August 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Which power couple will be obsessing over in just six months time? The 87th Oscars approach and as long as the movies have been around there have been fabulously wealthy and glamorous movie star couples. Take Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks for instance, the original celebrity power couple. If you must know (I know you are too shy to ask) my favorite films of theirs are His: The Thief of Bagdad (1924) and Hers: Stella Maris (1918) though admittedly I have many more left to see.

Fairbanks & Pickford were married in 1920 when both were superstars, he the original Zorro and she Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and other big hits. He famously gave Pickford "The Star of Bombay," a 182-carat sapphire which was not actually from Bombay but from Sri Lanka. She later bequeathed it to the Smithsonian where it remains. There's your priceless (okay, $½ million in today's dollars) piece of trivia for the day. »

How Politicizing Batman Gets Dangerous

23 August 2014 8:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As far as most people can tell, though the actual chronology tends to get confusing, it all started with the late Andrew Brietbart.

In between the right wing of American politics stomping up and down about Hollywood liberals like George Clooney and Angelina Jolie, occasionally they take a break and instead summarily hijack a beloved film for their own political means.  As opposed to successfully producing content that is undoubtedly in line with their politics, guys like Rush Limbaugh and Brietbart are quicker to repurpose an already well-packaged product.

That’s exactly what Brietbart.com did with Christopher Nolan’s second foray into Gotham, praising The Dark Knight for its clear anti-terrorism pro-Patriot Act stance.  This became a major talking point throughout the news and blogosphere as the film’s popularity grew.  And for folks as far right as Limbaugh, it must have felt like Christmas.

I mean, here we have a film, »

Images from 'Selma' feature David Oyelowo as Mlk, Tom Wilkinson as Lbj and more

22 August 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ava DuVernay's "Selma" is going to come around at a particularly noteworthy time. Yes, it's been 50 years since the Selma-to-Montgomery marches and yes, it's been 49 years since the passing of the voter rights act. But as we look around today, it's perfectly clear: the more things change, the more they stay the same. Starting with voting, it's increasingly a Constitutional right that finds itself under fire. The strictures placed have been aimed — if not explicitly, then damn near close — at minorities all in the name of combating "voter fraud." But this was a dog that didn't hunt from the start, to the point that a Washington Post report revealing 31 credible instances of voter fraud out of a billion — that's 31 out of 1 with nine zeroes after it — comes across as hardly shocking, and borderline humorous. DuVernay herself has stated that if her film does nothing else, it must bring attention to this steady erosion. »

Cs Video: How Actor Jack O'Connell's Star is Ascending with Starred Up

22 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Jack O'Connell made minor waves last year when he starred in David Mackenzie's prison movie Starred Up, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. A few months later, he was impressing more people with his starring role in Yann Demage's '71 when it premiered at Berlinale. Later this year, he stars in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, which will get him more attention for his performance as American hero Louis Zamperini. ComingSoon.net talked with O'Connell about all three films as well as speaking to Starred Up director David Mackenzie when they brought the film to the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. »

An end of the summer stab at Golden Globe predictions

22 August 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hi everyone! As previously mentioned in my last installment, I was originally planning on waiting to take a new look at Golden Globe predictions until the summer was over (so basically September), but I couldn’t resist. I’m back now with what’s my third look at the Golden Globe Awards, with this time around, a new theory to try and drum up some different predictions. Here goes nothing! To reiterate once again, the big difference you’ll see here between the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is that they tend to go for the bigger names or the bigger productions. As such, I’ve again got Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and David Fincher’s Gone Girl ahead of Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher here. You also still potentially lose certain indie players, as you’ll see evidenced by much smaller nomination totals (or even shutouts) for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, »

Pat O'Brien Recalls the Time Angelina Jolie Was "Really Horny" Looking For a Random Guy In an Elevator

22 August 2014 2:13 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

An elevator incident that almost eclipses Solange-gate! Pat O'Brien claims in his memoir I'll Be Right Back After This that Angelina Jolie once told him in an elevator that she was "really horny" and on a manhunt after splitting from Billy Bob Thornton in 2002. In a snippet of the tell-all, obtained by the Daily Mail, the former Access Hollywood host claims the elevator run-in with Jolie occurred over a decade ago at Beverly Hills hotel L'Ermitage. "I said, 'What's up baby?'” O'Brien recalled of bumping into [...] »

Interview: Michael Winterbottom Talks Reteaming With Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon For 'The Trip To Italy'

21 August 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Michael Winterbottom has had one of the most diverse and unpredictable careers of any director working. Across 22 films in 20 years, he’s tackled virtually every genre, with films set all over the world, working with everyone from A-list stars like Angelina Jolie, to non-professional actors. And this year, unexpectedly, he’s made his first sequel. “The Trip To Italy” is a follow-up to 2011’s “The Trip,” and like the first film, sees Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon playing version of themselves, traveling around, bickering, trading impressions and eating amazing food. As the title suggests, the location has changed, but the film is just as enjoyable, and curiously moving, as its predecessor. With “The Trip To Italy” now in theaters, and his next film, the Amanda Knox-inspired “The Face Of An Angel,” starring Daniel Bruhl and Kate Beckinsale, screening at Tiff in a couple of weeks, we sat down with Winterbottom »

Angelina Jolie Once Said She Was "Really Horny" and Looking for a Man in an Elevator, Claims Pat O'Brien

Well, this is unexpected.  Former host of Access Hollywood and The Insider Pat O'Brien has released his memoir, titled I'll Be Right Back After This, in which he details and, er, interesting encounter with Angelina Jolie that allegedly took place at the high-end Beverly Hills hotel L'Ermitage back in 2002.  "I said, 'What's up baby?'" he recalled (according to the Daily Mail, which obtained excerpts of the memoir), claiming he rubbed elbows with the Oscar-winning actress in an elevator, at which point Angelina reportedly replied, "I'm trying to find this guy I kind of know because I'm really horny right now.'"

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Comic-Book Sequel

21 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you have forgotten a little bit about "Sin City," we can't blame you.

The original film came out way back in 2005, before the onslaught of comic book adaptations, when a time of 1:1 approximations and largely computer-generated backgrounds were something to behold. Since then, we take these things for granted. Not that there's been anything like "Sin City" in the 10 years since it's been released -- it remains something of a technical and narrative achievement, an anthology film that Xeroxed images and tableaus from the comic book almost perfectly and retained its nifty film noir style and structure.

Now, director Robert Rodriguez and co-director Frank Miller (who also wrote and drew the original comic books) are back, with "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," which stars Eva Green (as the titular dame), Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin.

'Sin City' Siren Eva Green on Her Sexy, Bloody Comeback

21 August 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Eva Green's year has been one for the history books, or from them anyway. In March, the French actress was seen in plate mail playing the vengeful Persian warrior Artemisia in the action hit 300: Rise of an Empire. Then, in late April, she popped up in Showtime's Penny Dreadful, recently renewed for a second season, where she traded in ancient duds for frocks and black lace as Vanessa Ives, a Victorian prone to demonic possession. In August, Green caps her run of titillating period pieces with the release »
