How Cobie Smulders Met Her 'Unexpected' Indie-Movie Future

23 July 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Cobie Smulders is not accustomed to being singled out. The How I Met Your Mother star and Marvel universe apparatchik tends to operate in the company of others, which is why she found herself somewhat stricken with panic earlier this year at the Sundance premiere of her latest film, Unexpected, which opens in theaters and on demand this Friday. "Oh shit," she recalls thinking. "I'm in every scene."

It's true, she is — though it's about time. Fans of her CBS sitcom, which concluded its nine-season run last year, might agree »

Watch: Nicole Kidman Fearlessly Takes on Sensual 'Strangerland' (Exclusive Video Interview)

1 July 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses, from her Oscar-winning role as a depressed Virginia Woolf in "The Hours" and warbling woman of the night in "Moulin Rouge!" to the grieving mother in "Rabbit Hole," aggressive newswoman on the rise in "To Die For," and sexy turn in "Paperboy." I talked to her on a chilly Sundance balcony right before her latest film "Strangerland" made its debut in the World competition.   "Strangerland" is a gorgeously moody outback thriller shot in Alice Springs about a pharmacist (Joseph Fiennes, replacing originally cast Guy Pearce) and his wife (Kidman) who move to a new town after their sex-crazed 15-year-old daughter has an affair with a teacher. They haven't had a chance to settle down when the girl and her younger brother vanish during a dust storm, presumably into the desert, spawning all sorts of talk and suspicion as the town police chief (Hugo Weaving) tries to. »

Brimstone follows young Liz, who goes on the run from a vengeful reverend (Guy Pearce) after being accused of a crime she did not commit.

24 June 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For the past little while, the western "Brimstone" has been putting together a pretty solid ensemble, and there was promise in the movie that would've reunited Robert Pattinson with his "The Rover" co-star Guy Pearce, and "Maps To The Stars" player Mia Wasikowska. But as production gets underway, two of those three names have been swapped out. Variety reports that Kit Harington and Dakota Fanning have taken the roles previously assigned to Pattinson and Wasikowska. Martin Koolhoven is directing the movie — which also features Carice Van Houten and "Wetlands" star Carla Juri — that follows Liz, a young woman on the run from her past and a deadly man known as The Preacher. Harington will play an outlaw.

Results – The Review

21 June 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

We would all like to be in better shape, I’m thinking. Even people who work out every day always seem to want to do more to be healthier, to get into better physical condition. And goodness knows obesity and sedentary lifestyles seem to be the norm for a great many people in this country. I have to count myself among the out of shape but wanting to do something about it. I have gained and lost the same 40 or 50 pounds so many times in my life it’s now difficult to lose that weight and keep it off. I have a gym membership but rarely use it and can’t seem to find the time to get back to the gym on a regular basis.

Maybe I should get a personal trainer? Which leads me to Results, a remarkable and good hearted movie about personal trainers, a new client »
