It was announced a couple of years ago that Steven Spileberg’s adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s sci-fi novel Robopocalypse was going to be postponed indefinitely. No word has come to light yet on whether this film will make it out of Development Hell, but some concept art for the movie has been uncovered, which you can view below:
In the future, robots have been created to serve Mankind. Archos, the 14th version of an advanced Artificial Intelligence developed by the U.S. government, continuously deleted for displaying hostility towards humans, escapes from being destroyed and soon becomes a virus, downloading itself into every piece of A.I.-controlled technology in the planet, leading to a worldwide robot uprising where the humans caught in the chaos struggle to survive.

Discovery Channel's 2015 Shark Week will be bigger than ever before, as shark enthusiasts can look forward to terrifying thrills over the next few weeks. To celebrate the kick off we're continuing the big-fish fun with celeb pearly whites on great whites, hammerheads, tiger sharks and more. Sofía Vergara, Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus are just some of the stars attacking you with their famous fangs in the gallery »
When I brought up Livia Firth's (aka Livia Giuggioli) Eco-Age Green Carpet Challenge last month to Fresh Dressed director Sacha Jenkins, this was his response: "I mean, when you talk inner city, green is the furthest thing. Because you are dealing with people who live in food deserts." Whereas Laurie David exposes the fast food industry in Fed Up, Andrew Morgan's global investigations into fast fashion in The True Cost have all the makings of a mini-series.
At an event hosted by Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein, William Ivey Long, Cindy Sherman and Stella McCartney, attended by Anna Wintour, Isabella Rossellini, Yigal Azrouel, Giovanna Battaglia, Keren Craig, Stephanie Lacava, Anne Hathaway with Adam Shulman, Tonne Goodman, Timo Weiland, Laura Piety, Steven Kolb and Derek Blasberg, I spoke to Andrew at Lincoln »

Three mouthed-but-not-vocalized cheers for the return of "Lip Sync Battle"! Spike TV's epic celebrity showdown, hosted by LL Cool J, was an instant hit when it debuted with Dwayne Johnson vs. Jimmy Fallon back in April. It really picked up steam with the Anne Hathaway vs. Emily Blunt match, traumatized us -- in a good way -- with Stephen Merchant and later Julianne Hough, then dipped a bit before going on break. Season 1 is not over, but it's been off the air since May 28. But now it's back with a vengeance, starting next Thursday, July 9.
Here's the upcoming lineup:

Charlie Hunnam has been in the Hollywood spotlight since the late '90s, and it's safe to say that he just keeps getting hotter and hotter. The sexiest Charlie Hunnam pictures out there include several recent favorites - bonus points for the ridiculously hot shirtless snaps - but he's been a heartthrob for more than a decade. In the early 2000s, Charlie appeared on Undeclared and starred in Nicholas Nickleby alongside Anne Hathaway then gained even more attention with roles in Cold Mountain and Green Street Hooligans. The character of his career, though, was undeniably Sons of Anarchy's Jax Teller, and he had some crazy-sexy, Gif-worthy moments on the show. Now that the series has ended, we'll be seeing more of Charlie on the big screen, but until then, let's take a look back at his very handsome Hollywood evolution, from the '90s to now. »
Nearly a decade after a successful theatrical release, Brokeback Mountain remains a groundbreaking drama in the public consciousness in several aspects. Certainly, one of its unique dramatic elements was brought by Anne Hathaway’s character, the scorned wife, Lureen Newsome. Interestingly enough, Hathaway’s audition for the role was apparently not particularly inspiring. In an interview with Variety reflecting on the historical status of Brokeback Mountain, director, Ang Lee discusses the rather awkward audition that nevertheless landed Anne Hathaway with her crucial role. According to Lee: On the Universal lot for auditions, the casting director told me the next actress coming in to read was going to apologize for her clothes and makeup, but to just let her do that and go into the reading. Then Anne came in, wearing heavy makeup and dressed as a princess, because she was shooting a parade scene for ‘The Princess »
This year marks the 10th anniversary of “Brokeback Mountain,” which made history as the first gay romance to cross over into the mainstream, eventually grossing $178 million worldwide. Nearly a decade later, it’s still the most successful same-sex love story that Hollywood has ever produced. The film’s director Ang Lee and producer James Schamus spoke to Variety in separate conversations about their memories of the movie, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger as closeted cowboys.
Variety’s 106-page marriage equality special issue includes Q&As, features, analysis, columns and more on Hollywood’s role in gay rights.
Schamus: “It started when I was at Good Machine, which was a scrappy low-budget outfit. We read the short story (by Annie Proulx), and of course it’s a quick read — an instant and brutal one. We found out it wasn’t under option. We tried and tried again for six years to get financing, »

All this week, we’re presenting the Vulture TV Awards, honoring the best in television from the past year. The nominees for Best Viral Moment are: Nicole Kidman on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Jon Snow at a dinner party, Late Night With Seth Meyers "Too Many Cooks," Adult Swim Anne Hathaway’s “Wrecking Ball” performance, Lip Sync Battle Australia takedown, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver And the winner is ..."Too Many Cooks" When "Lazy Sunday" first aired on Saturday Night Live back in 2005, the TV universe seemed to shift a bit on its axis. (Perhaps because it really did: The Lonely Island video, one of the earliest professionally created YouTube sensations, helped usher in the age of internet-tv convergence.) It would be a stretch to suggest Adult Swim’s "Too Many Cooks" will end up having a similar impact, but for a few weeks last November, Casper Kelly »

Many fans of Asian Cinema are quick to complain and point the finger when their favourite Asian discoveries are snapped up and remade in Hollywood, sometimes at the expense of a proper release for the original film. Well the current climate is seeing China get in on this trend themselves, but rather than targeting horror, action or other genre films, their sights are firmly set on lucrative romantic comedies - perfect star vehicles guaranteed to pull in the punters. We have already seen the likes of What Women Want remade in the mainland, with Andy Lau and Gong Li replacing Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt. A Chinese remake of the Anne Hathaway/Kate Hudson comedy Bride Wars is currently in the works, as is a remake of...

It's Meryl Streep's 66th birthday. Have you noticed that Meryl's supposed "superfans" spend a lot of time lionizing her but remaining unspecific about what makes her performances and movies so good? Let's change that. To celebrate Meryl's birthday, let's remind ourselves how we can be less basic when it comes to appreciating her work. I'm tired of people screaming "She Is Perfection!!!" and the leaving their appraisal at that. She's a significant artist we can always appreciate more. 1. Know that "A Cry in the Dark" is Meryl's most prescient film. "The dingo ate my baby." It's not a comedic line; it's a woman screaming when she learns an animal has killed her child. "A Cry in the Dark" is perhaps the most misremembered movie in Meryl's filmography, a damning portrait of frenzied trial coverage and how sensational news can ruin an innocent person's reputation. As Lindy Chamberlain, Meryl finds »

Queen Meryl Streep is turning 66 on Monday, and it's time to salute one of our personal favorite movies starring the award magnet. Nine years after The Devil Wears Prada came out, we're still as obsessed with the movie as ever. Meryl Streep is icy perfection, Anne Hathaway is her innocent foil, and Emily Blunt - well, this is the film that introduces us to Blunt's comic genius. To celebrate the ongoing fabulousness of this movie, we've put together the sassiest, best, funniest moments from the movie. (That's all.) »
As far as working couples go, director Julie Taymor and composer Elliot Goldenthal might be the most daring, experimental and sophisticated in the showbiz firmament. Their film, theater and opera collaborations combine complex soundscapes with highly stylized visuals.
Their latest phantasmagoria, Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” — a filmed record of Taymor’s staging of the play at the Theatre for a New Audience in Brooklyn that debuted at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival last September — is no different, despite the production’s spare trappings.
“It was really simple onstage,” explains Goldenthal, “just a few projections, and the audience surrounding the actors. It was mainly an actors’ piece.”
And yet the production — which is being presented event-style in approximately 85 theaters for one night only on Monday, June 22 — appears highly cinematic, bathed in stark, moonlight-blue lighting, and adorned with gorgeous costumes that bridge contemporary and period worlds with the spirit world of gods and fairies. »

The Barrow Group and the Theatre Communications Group are teaming up to bring acting coach and theater educator Seth Barrish and actor-comedian Mike Birbiglia together for their In Conversation series in New York City. Barrish will be giving acting tips, as well as speaking about his book, “The Actors Companion.” Released through Tcg, the companion includes a foreword from Anne Hathaway and positive commentary from actors like Sakina Jaffrey, Birbiglia, and Alison Wright (“How I Met Your Mother”). The book is designed to “encourage spontaneity; foster entertaining, human, and compelling behavior; help you to become more sensitive, imaginative, responsive, and alive onstage; change your work effortlessly and invisibly (so the audience won’t detect any effort on your part and therefore will feel like they are watching a real person rather than an actor ‘working’),” according to the Barrow Group website. Set to take place June 23 at the Barrow Group (312 W. »
Robin and Catwoman reunite! Anne Hathaway will appear in an upcoming episode of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's variety show HitRecord on TV. This wacky sneak peak brings the two back to the comic book genre, but of a different variety than Christopher Nolan's gritty The Dark Knight Rises. Gordon-Levitt plays the barrel chested Brock Blaster who must rescue the damsel in distress from the clutches of the sinister Vivica Virus—played by Hathaway. It's an hilarious play on the classic comic book tropes. They even have dopey sidekicks who are completely useless! What a hoot! This funny video will appear on tomorrow's episode titled "The Number Two," which »
Livia Firth is a committed activist who is looking towards the future. She is the founder of The Green Carpet Challenge, Creative Director of Eco-Age, and Oxfam Global Ambassador along with Bill Nighy, Helen Mirren, Annie Lennox, Desmond Tutu, Gael Garcia Bernal, Helena Christensen, and Colin Firth.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
