The Gunman review: Does Sean Penn have a special set of skills?

18 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Pierre Morel; Screenwriter: Don MacPherson, Pete Travis, Sean Penn; Starring: Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Javier Bardem, Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone, Jasmine Trinca; Running time: 115 mins; Certificate: 15

There used to be a time when nothing was more cringe-worthy than a middle-aged action hero. Remember Roger Moore smooching Bond Girls 30 years his junior in the twilight years of his 007 reign? Or Sean Connery trying to recapture the glory days next to Catherine Zeta-Jones in Entrapment? That was then and this is now.

The slightly creaking older leading man is now a sizeable mini-industry in itself, primarily thanks to Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills in the Taken series. Beyond that Denzel Washington had The Equalizer, Kevin Costner had 3 Days to Kills and every action icon you remember from the '80s united for The Expendables.

The latest seasoned star to throw his hat into the still-got-lead-in-the-pencil ring is Sean Penn, teaming with »

Female superhero adaptations that nearly happened

18 March 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Wonder Woman to Red Sonja, here are the female comic book projects that we’ve missed out on…

Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.

Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.

This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »

Apple Is Releasing New Racially Diverse Emojis (But One of Them Looks Very Offensive)

23 February 2015 2:19 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

What feels like a million years ago*, it was announced that new emoji would be released to correct a few issues: 1) No taco emoji. 2) No middle finger emoji. 3) Most importantly of all, literally no diversity among the emoji people, minus the stereotypical Asian face and Indian man in a turban.

(*June of 2014)

Now, they're finally coming: Apple’s new beta software reveals over 300 new emoji, including 32 flags of various countries, alternate family types, and the ability to select an emoji and change its skin tone:

Each emoji representing people on Apple platforms now offers a choice of skin color, with abstract color as the base. pic.twitter.com/VsksabEjmM

Jordan Kay (@_Jordan) February 23, 2015

News: Which emoji do you think Catherine Zeta-Jones looks like here?

All human emojis -- including Santa! -- are customizable, which seems like a good start to fixing Apple’s emoji diversity problem. Except uuuuuuuuuuum, what is that yellow face supposed to be?

Oscars: Julianne Moore wins Best Actress for 'Still Alice'

22 February 2015 8:57 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As all 29 of our Oscars Experts predicted, Julianne Moore won Best Actress for "Still Alice" on Sunday night. She played the title character, a linguistics professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease, a role that had already earned her a slew of awards: she won at the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice, SAG, and BAFTA Awards. -Break- This was Moore's fifth attempt at Oscar glory. She first contended in 1997 for her supporting role in "Boogie Nights" but lost to Kim Basinger ("L.A. Confidential"). Two years later, she reaped the first of her Best Actress bids for "The End of the Affair" but was edged out by Hilary Swank ("Boys Don't Cry"). And in 2002, she contended in both categories -- lead for "Far from Heaven" and supporting for "The Hours" -- but was defeated by Nicole Kidman ("The Hours") and Catherine Zeta-Jones ("Chicago"), respectively.

Pregnant at the Oscars: 7 Actresses Who Rocked Baby Bumps at the Academy Awards

20 February 2015 3:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

All eyes will be on Keira Knightley at this year’s Academy Awards. The mom-to-be is not only nominated for an Oscar but she's also dressing for two! She’s not the first to rock a baby bump on the Oscars red carpet. Here's a look at seven other A-listers who rocked the “accessory” at the big event.

In 1983, Meryl Streep was nominated for her fourth Academy Award and expecting her second child. What she didn't expect was another Oscar. That night Streep won for her lead role in Sophie's Choice. When asked backstage what she would tell her future daughter about the big night, the actress responded, "That she was here."

More stars than you can handle were at 'SNL40'

16 February 2015 1:24 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Want to take a guess on which event had the biggest turnout of superstars that cross the worlds of movies, music, TV and sports? The Golden Globes? Not this past show. The Grammys? Maybe, but really just from the music biz. Next Sunday's Academy Awards? We've seen the presenters so far and we're not sure it even matches the Globes. No, the entertainment capital of the world on Sunday was "Saturday Night Live's" 40th anniversary celebration. Obviously, many of the returning cast members of "SNL" are huge stars in their own right. Will Ferrell, Bill Murray, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, Billy Crystal and the one and only Eddie Murphy were all on hand. Frequent hosts such as Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman also stopped by (and quite possibly stole a little bit of »

StreamFix: 5 erotic thrillers to watch right now

12 February 2015 5:33 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Fifty Shades of Grey" is in theaters this weekend. Have you heard? In celebration of this stunning cinematic achievement, we've trawled through all the streaming sites to bring you a list of five worthwhile erotic thrillers to watch online right now! Particularly useful for those who, you know, aren't interested in seeing "50 Shades" (they do exist!) but are nevertheless jonesing for some steely sexual tension to spice up their weekends. "Basic Instinct" (1992) The film that made Sharon Stone a star is still one of her best. Watch the aesthetically-gifted stunner command the screen with that placid, aquamarine stare. Forget the "no undies" leg crossing (or don't!) -- that interrogation scene is a classic for way better reasons than a single shot of Stone's naughty parts. "Nymphomaniac Pts. I and II" (2014) How about four hours of erotic thrillerisms? Charlotte Gainsbourg's commanding underbite does some of its best work in Lars von Trier »

Oscar Acting Races: 5 Box Office Musings

26 January 2015 8:42 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to offer some random box office facts about the acting races. The big Oscar box office story continues to be American Sniper’s unprecedented success, so much so that Bradley Cooper garnered a shoutout last night at the SAG Awards despite not being nominated. I’m starting to feel the Best Picture category might not be the only three-way race as we wade deeper into Phase 2. Numbers and statistics junkie that I imagine myself to be, I was curious to see whether the past fifteen years’ worth of box office numbers in the acting categories could help us gleam anything about potential outcomes. Spoiler alert: not much, but enjoy the following random tidbits below. 

As it stands, Bradley, Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall (improbably, really) and Meryl Streep hold the title as the highest grossing nominees from their respective races. How might this help Bradley; well, let's take a »

The Wrap Emily Blunt is joining Charlize Theron to double the evil sorceress perfection that terrorizes Chris Hemsworth in The Huntsman. Now I suddenly want to see it.

Mnpp Whatever happened to Sean Maher (Firefly). Jason has the answer 

Vulture John Travolta without his hairpiece. Ditch it permanently, John. Bald is beautiful. Or at least more beautiful than pretending you have hair (you did have a great head of it) when you no longer do. 

THR Michael Keaton in talks to star in a "gritty" drama from John Lee Hancock (who, tbh, we don't associate with "gritty" since he made The Rookie and The Blind Side*) called The Founder about the rise of McDonalds and behind the scenes shady business. It sounds like there are three good male roles so I wonder who will join Keaton? Can I put in a request for Edward Norton. I want them to become »

17 Questions We Have After Watching the Golden Globes

12 January 2015 2:21 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler may have answered a lot of our questions last night (Andy Serkis played Reese Witherspoon’s backpack in Wild, J.K. Simmons is short for Just Keep Simmons), but the 2015 Golden Globes left us with plenty more. Like...

1. Will Jessica Chastain ever recover from that Bill Cosby joke?

Or is that how she reacts to every joke? Because it’s pretty similar to how she reacted two years ago when Tina and Amy told that joke about James Cameron. Someone tell her a not at all controversial joke and see what happens.

2. Why was Joaquin Phoenix there?

Besides providing the punch line to one of the night’s best jokes. Yeah, he was nominated for Inherent Vice, but he also thinks award shows are bullsh*t, so...

3. What happens if Benedict Cumberbatch doesn’t photobomb someone at an awards show? Does the world end? Does he actually turn into that dragon from Lord »

‘The View’s’ Rosie O’Donnell Drops F-Bomb During Amal Clooney Joke

12 January 2015 10:24 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Don’t make jokes about Amal Clooney and aging unless you want to hear ABC’s “The View” host Rosie O’Donnell let the F-word slip.

During Monday’s segment, guest co-host Nikki Glaser joked about George Clooney‘s touching tribute to his wife during the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday.

“She’ll age, and then they’ll have a chance,” Glaser said about women still swooning over Clooney. Glaser received a high five from O’Donnell who let the four-letter expletive slip.

Host Nicolle Wallace, along with guest co-hosts Michelle Williams and Mario Cantone, were left with their mouths agape. »

Golden Globes Fashion: Red, White, Blue and Trans

11 January 2015 8:26 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Glamorous Golden Globes fashions provided a lighter counterpoint to the many serious topics brought up by hosts and presenters on the red carpet and during the 72nd annual ceremony.

Stars including George Clooney sported “Je Suis Charlie” buttons in support of the Charlie Hebdo attacks and though it wasn’t planned that way, the colors of the French flag were well-represented: red on Taylor Schilling, white on Kate Hudson and blue on Natasha Lyonne.

Red gowns had a big moment on the red carpet: in addition to Schilling, nominees Julianna Margulies, Helen Mirren, Lena Dunham and Allison Janney all matched the carpet in scarlet, along with other attendees Catherine Zeta-Jones, Christine Baranski, Allison Williams and Kate Mara.

A few women bucked the long dress majority: Emma Stone opted for black trousers with a strapless top, while “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway won mostly raves for her offbeat blue-patterned Kenzo pantsuit and platform Stella McCartney kicks. »
