The writing is on the wall: the $150 million "Pan" is gearing up to be colossal flop at the box office this weekend, with tracking predicting a paltry $21 million opening. Certainly, the reviews have been largely scathing, including our own, but I have a bit of a softer take on the movie. While I can't argue that "Pan" doesn't come together at all, and has some serious tonal issues, Joe Wright's vision is pretty bold for the material, and there are some fascinating ideas in the movie, and even some winning sequences. It may not be a good movie, but it's never dull or insulting, and it's definitely a more engaging and fascinating watch than something like The Wachowskis' "Jupiter Ascending" (Warner Bros.' other big flop this year).

When Ashley Judd was making Paramount’s “Kiss the Girls” in the late ’90s, she was being pursued by a mogul from a rival studio, whom she believed wanted to cast her in a film. But suddenly she found herself falling into a dark trap.
“I was sexually harassed by one of the industry’s most famous, admired-slash-reviled bosses,” the actress says, revealing a story she’s never before publicly disclosed. The man, who Judd declined to name, invited her to dinner. When she arrived at his hotel, she was told to meet him upstairs in his room. “It was so disgusting,” she says. “He physically lured me by saying, ‘Help me pick out what I’m going to wear.’” The advances continued to escalate. “The ultimate thing when I was weaseling out of everything else was, ‘Will you watch me shower?’ ” Her voice cracks. “And by the way, I »

Anne Hathaway doesn't want her life to be ''defined'' by social media. The 'Devil Wears Prada' actress insists she isn't addicted to the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram like most of her generation. She shared: ''I'm not as into it as a lot of other people - particularly other millennials. I'm not as into it, my life isn't as defined by it. But it's the world now so I want to be familiar.'' And her 'The Intern' co-star Robert De Niro insists he doesn't want to use the social tools but praised technology for helping to make communication easier. He added: ''I'm not part of Facebook or Linkedin, or, er, Instagram - no. ''I don't tweet. I have an iPhone and a computer and all that stuff and I communicate that way, it's a great way to communicate.'' Meanwhile, Anne also opened up about the comedy, »
While Martin Scorsese is wrapped on "Silence," there's another long brewing project he's forever promised to get to: "The Irishman." The good news is that it looks like it's definitely on the horizon, but there's a curious new twist to the project, that makes it all the more intriguing. Doing the rounds for "The Intern," Robert De Niro stopped by Empire with Anne Hathaway to talk about the comedy. The discussion soon veered into the lack of roles for women in the industry, and De Niro shared that essentially his options are also limited for leading roles as an older actor. However, he then revealed that for "The Irishman," the production may utilize technology to allow De Niro to appear in what I'd assume are flashback sequences. "I’m working on ‘The Irishman’ with Marty Scorsese, and there are sections, earlier periods in the film, where we’re experimenting with »

That Loki is impressive as hell. Tom Hiddleston was on "The Graham Norton Show" alongside Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, and Kenneth Branagh -- what a great lineup! -- and the conversation turned to impressions.
Tom Hiddleston stole the show, and started his mimic-fest by doing an impression of Owen Wilson from "Midnight in Paris." Tom said he's been made to do impressions of his "Avengers" co-stars, and admitted a Christopher Walken impression is easy ... but pretty much irresistible, so he did that too. Then he braved a De Niro impression, on the same couch as De Niro.
Tom said he's memorized pages of the "Heat" script and re-enacted a scene, acknowledging that De Niro would be familiar with it, since he was there, shooting the 1995 scene with Al Pacino. It's kind of hilarious to see Tom explain the scene as if he is the expert, but he's self-deprecating about it and it's very charming, »

The 77-year-old actress has won two best actress Oscars in her decades-long career, but has not received a nomination in 28 years. This year, however, she has been generating major Oscar buzz for a supporting actress nomination after a short, but very strong, performance in director Paolo Sorrentino‘s Youth, in which she plays an aging movie star.
Fonda’s role in the film is hardly more than a cameo, with her screen time barely exceeding five minutes, and yet that could be enough for her to earn a best supporting actress nomination. Limited screen time does not necessarily bar an actress from the Oscars, and a few performances that are even shorter than Fonda »

Going into the weekend, many box office prognosticators were wondering if director Ridley Scott's The Martian could break the October opening weekend record set two years ago by Gravity, which earned $55.7 million in its first weekend in theaters. As it turns out, The Martian gave a valiant effort, but came up just short, taking in an estimated $55 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Of course, the film is still in great shape, earning back nearly half of its $108 million budget after just three days in theaters.
The Martian was widely beloved by critics, earning a 94% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, opening in 3,831 theaters for an impressive $14,357 per-screen average. If these estimates hold true when the actual numbers roll in tomorrow, The Martian will have fell just $700,000 short of Gravity's October box office record, but it is still an impressive showing nonetheless. The Martian was the only new movie opening wide this weekend, »

Being a nerd doesn’t mean what it used to.
In Back To The Future, Marty McFly travels to the fifties and discovered his father is the town punching bag. Being a nerd back then meant tucked-in pants, a shirt buttoned to the top, and a feeble, nasally willingness to do the jocks’ homework. George McFly was a cartoon of tropes, including a professed love for science fiction. But the key difference between the nerd as a high school stereotype and the nerd of 2015 is this: George McFly wasn’t a nerd because of his interest in science fiction – he was a nerd because he was insecure and hadn’t danced to a Chuck Berry riff yet. His interest in sci-fi was an accessory to add credibility to his nerdy identity.

Stories of Robert De Niro baling out of an innocuous Radio Times interview (he complained about the “negative inference” of Emma Brockes’s questions) suggested that the one-time screen great’s latest vehicle is an embarrassment-causing stinker. Actually, Nancy Meyers’s humdrum dramedy is nothing to get upset about. De Niro plays Ben Whittaker, a 70-year-old widower who lands a late-life internship at an e-commerce company run by Anne Hathaway’s harassed but successful Jules Ostin. So basically it’s The Devil Wears Prada: Next Generation – The Nicer Years. Ben is full of old-school wisdom (“always carry a handkerchief”) and soon becomes Jules’s confidant as a work/life crisis beckons and marital discord looms. Meyers’s screenplay makes all the right equal-ops noises as Jules faces sexist stereotyping from friends and colleagues alike, »

As any fan is well aware, Tom Hiddleston is great at celebrity impressions. He's so good, in fact, that when prompted to do his Robert De Niro impersonation on The Graham Norton Show, Hiddleston did it . . . with Robert De Niro five feet away. Anne Hathaway and Kenneth Branagh were there too, but that doesn't really matter. He chose a scene from the classic 1995 thriller Heat, and not only does he do his best De Niro, he also impersonates Al Pacino! It's gold, and De Niro's reaction is, well, priceless. »

With Robert DeNiro cast as a retiree entering the world of e-commerce as an intern, The Intern sees Nancy Myers in familiar territory, crafting a gentle comedy where cynicism and negativity are turned away at the door. Kicking off proceedings in high gear, no time is wasted in putting DeNiro’s Ben in the fish out of water scenario, pairing him with Anne Hathaway’s harried mail order fashion website CEO Jules to create an unlikely onscreen pairing that works surprisingly well. In the hands of anyone else, The Intern could have fallen back on cliched jokes of seniors not able to hack it in the online world, but Myers' script casts Ben as a kind old soul who is more than able to handle himself in an environment where e-mails are the preferred mode of communication and a suit and tie is viewed as quaint. Ben’s old school wisdom, »

You know you’ve made it as an actor when you can pick and choose your projects. As an indication of her status, Anne Hathaway only felt the need to do one movie this year, The Intern, alongside Robert De Niro, which has just been hit cinemas. And it doesn’t look like a short-term go-slow either: her upcoming slate includes just two movies – Alice Through The Looking Glass, in 2016, and The Burning Woman a year later.
That’s certainly not a bad position to be in, and shows how far Hathaway has come in a relatively short space of time since arriving on screen as fresh-faced royalty in The Princess Diaries, and now she can lay claim to being an Oscar winner, and a star of two billion dollar movies. Nothing to be sniffed at that. No wonder she doesn’t feel the need to work very often.

Whew, what a charmer that Loki is. Tom Hiddleston joined Kenneth Branagh and The Intern co-stars Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro on The Graham Norton Show, which became an opportune moment for the host to ask Hiddleston to bring out his canon of impressions, which include Christopher Walken, Owen Wilson, and, of course, Robert De Niro. Not only does Hiddleston do De Niro, but he reenacts De Niro's coffee-shop scene across from Al Pacino in Michael Mann's Heat. This is definitely why the British are taking all our jobs.And if that weren't enough, he also whips out a Graham Norton impression on the spot. »
