"She's a camp event and a celebrity and that's all and the last thing anybody needs is to make a giant bomb with her that any fool could see coming." —Scott Rudin, lover of many women. Akhmatova has a great poem, one of her Northern Elegies, which starts like this: I, like a river,Have been turned aside by this harsh age.I am a substitute. My life has flowedInto another channelAnd I do not recognize my shores. The poet uses the power of imagination to do a mild perversion of Proust’s Madeleine. Or not Proust, a realization of Heisenberg. To conjure an entire dead-cat life, another conditional mood persona, the ahistoric Akhmatova, who would have been. If this By the Sea, with all its creaky dollhouse dust, had been made by Rainer Werner Fassbinder or by Todd Haynes I bet you all $10 everybody (and Scott Rudin in particular) would be creaming their jeans. »

Hollywood has a long history of casting white actors in roles that should, arguably, go to actors of other ethnicities. Native Americans in those classic Westerns? Usually white. Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany.s? Totally white. The 2007 biography A Mighty Heart, which had Angelina Jolie playing a mixed race woman. Every time it happens recently, people complain and usually get what they consider to be unsatisfactory answers. This time, though, one of these types of complaints has actually gotten an apologetic response. When the first trailer for the Alex Proyas helmed film Gods of Egypt premiered a couple of weeks ago, the outcry over the whitewashing (also known as racebending) of the cast was louder than any possible buzz about the story of the film. Now, Forbes is reporting that the director and the company behind the movie, Lionsgate, have both issued apologies for their casting choices. Gods of »
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie might already have six children, but that wasn't the number they were originally aiming for. While making the press rounds for his new film, The Big Short, Brad opened up about his family life in an interview with The Telegraph, saying, "Listen, Angie and I were aiming for a dozen, but we crapped out after six. Everyone talks about the joy of having kids – blah, blah, blah. But I never knew how much I could love something until I looked in the faces of my children." He then jokingly added, "[There's] a lot of love, a lot of fighting, a lot of refereeing. A lot of teeth-brushing and spilling." Brad and Angelina tied the knot in a top-secret ceremony in August 2014 and are parents to 14-year-old Maddox, 11-year-old Pax, 10-year-old Zahara, 9-year-old Shiloh, and 7-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. Get a rare glimpse of the family in Vogue's November issue. »

The bigger, the better! Brad Pitt, 51, and Angelina Jolie, 40, are the proud parents of six children—Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 14, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 11, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 10, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 9, Knox Jolie-Pitt, 7, and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 7—but if Pitt had his way, he would have doubled the number of kids in their family. "Listen, Angie and I were aiming for a dozen, but we crapped out after six," Pitt, 51, tells The Telegraph. "Everyone talks about the joy of having kids—blah, blah, blah. But I never knew how much I could love something until I looked in the faces of my children," says Pitt, who admits that his house can be "chaos, total chaos" at times. Still, he admits that »
“Carol,” an elegantly wrought romance about two lesbians falling in love at the height of Cold War era conformity, is embracing an unconventional release strategy.
The film has received some of the best reviews of the year and is expected to be a major factor in the Oscar race, but instead of trying to push “Carol” into as many theaters as possible, the Weinstein Company is deploying a very deliberate distribution pattern.
“Carol” is still in the same four theaters in New York and Los Angeles where it opened two weeks ago and will not go into additional cities until Dec. 11.
“We love the movie, but we want to be cautious,” said Erik Lomis, the Weinstein Company’s distribution chief. “We want to take a smart, slow and steady approach.”
The caution may be warranted. “Carol” has done very well in its limited release, earning $588,355 since opening and scoring the »

Angelina Jolie Pitt is poised and self-aware, yet she pulls a face when I ask whether her kids think she’s cool. There are, famously, six of them (aged between seven and 14). “They think I’m weird,” she says eventually. But then she shrugs: well, alright, they might. “Maddox [who is 14] talks to me sometimes about writing as if he doesn’t think I’m terrible at it… And Vivienne is just happy I’m a tiger in a panda movie. But, ah, she’s just the little one – she’s all sweet.”
She ponders again. “I mean, there are moments when I can be cool, but they like to mess with me. They like to make fun of me. I’m just…” She breaks off. »

BFI Check out the Sight & Sound poll for 2015. Not pleased that The Assassin topped the immeasurably finer twofer of Carol & Mad Max Fury Road but it is what it is. Perennial critical darling peculiarities abound like Blackhat placing about Ex Machina. Oh please. I didn't hate the former like some but one must assume that's solely on Michael Mann's reputation, the way some filmmakers get a competition spot at Cannes simply because they directed something.
The Guardian on a Carol gift-wrapping promotion - it breaks my heart that people keep thinking this is a watch it on DVD film. It's So breathtakingly cinematic. Go To The Theater.

Angelina Jolie is getting her ''baby fix'' on set. The 40-year-old actress has six children - Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - with husband Brad Pitt but now that they are getting older she is thrilled that her new movie 'First They Killed My Father' requires hundreds of young kids. She told People: ''I'm surrounded by toys. We have 250 children in a scene, so I filled the house, my car, my trailer with toys. It's my 'I love babies' fix.'' However, Angelina admitted the project - about the Khmer Rouge Regime in Cambodia - ''is going to be the hardest movie'' on her maternal side as it features children in labour camps. She explained: ''They have to go through a labour camp. They have to cry and scream. My instinct is to want to cut and hug everyone.'' Meanwhile, it was previously »

I once lived with a woman for two years because her face and her energy reminded me of Setsuko Hara. There was the promise of beautiful dignity. The potential of sensual morality. And then of course the Setsuko illusion shattered when the woman threw a plate at my head. I’m not alone in falling for the great Japanese actress who passed recently at 95. There aren’t many movie stars that one wants for a wife and to grow old with. For instance, no one sees By The Sea, and says, “Geez, I gotta go find me an Angelina to propose […] »

At just 25 years of age, Jennifer Lawrence is easily one of the hottest stars in Hollywood, with two blockbuster franchises under her belt, The Hunger Games and the X-Men prequels. With the final Hunger Games movie, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, currently in theaters, and her X-Men trilogy coming to a close next year with X-Men: Apocalypse, many are wondering what's next for this talented actress. Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Jennifer Lawrence, who revealed that she is planning on making her directorial debut soon, with a dark comedy entitled Project Delirium.
"I'd also like to direct a comedy. I have wanted to direct as long as I've wanted to act. I just don't talk about it because I'd rather just do it. I've signed on to direct something called Project Delirium - it's based on this article about mental warfare in the '60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong. »

Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling were front and center at the premiere of their new film The Big Short in NYC on Monday, looking dapper as always. The handsome actors were joined by their costars Steve Carell and Finn Wittrock, who was accompanied by his lovely wife, Sarah Roberts. Missing from the fun, though, were Max Greenfield and Christian Bale, who popped up at the premiere of the movie during AFI Fest in La earlier this month. Brad recently made headlines when he and Angelina sat down for a rare joint interview with Tom Brokaw for NBC's Today and spoke about their working relationship and how Brad handled Angelina's medical procedures. Brad revealed he was in France when he found out about Angelina's health scare, saying, "I was out in France, and Angie called me and I got straight on a plane to return." Read on to see »

It appears as though Universal are not messing about when it comes to casting their upcoming Monsters Universe. Following the news that they’re looking to cast Angelina Jolie (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) as The Bride of Frankenstein and Scarlet Johansson in Creature From the Black Lagoon, Variety are reporting that they’re in talks with Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) to star in The Mummy.
Alex Kurtzman is overseeing the Monsters Universe, and will direct this reboot. Plot details are vague, but reports are suggesting that the movie will be set in present day, unlike all previous Universal Mummy movies.
Their Monsters Universe will see classic Universal Monsters such as The Wolf Man, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man and Frankenstein’s Monster get solo movies before culminating in an Avengers-style team-up movie. Rumours are also suggesting that the monsters may show up in each other’s films. »
