See The World Exclusive New Interstellar Poster

1 hour ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The image on this new poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar may look a little familiar from our last story, but The Dark Knight director liked the image he selected for Empire so much that he has also made it the official Us one-sheet for the film.As ever with this particular director, he's not giving much away. We can tell, from that strange folded-over landscape, that Matthew McConaughey's Cooper ain't in Kansas anymore, as we glimpsed in the trailer. But beyond that the film is keeping its secrets close. What we do know is that Cooper and his team are sent from a dying Earth to find a new home for humanity, and we're guessing this is one of the possibilities they inspect.The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Topher Grace, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Michael Caine and John Lithgow.

Ryan Murphy on 'Ahs: Freak Show': 'This season, once you die, you're dead'

15 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

By now, avid TV watchers know that each season of American Horror Story is an entirely new plot but with much of the same group of actors.

Examining 'American Beauty' at 15: A masterpiece, or a farce?

16 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Fifteen years ago this week, Sam Mendes’ film American Beauty arrived in U.S. theaters. In Florida, a film critic named Jay Boyar reviewed Mendes’ first full-length feature for the Orlando Sentinel—and he wrote that after seeing it, he “decided that the little satirical film would come and go without much fuss.”

However: “In the weeks since I saw the film, it has opened in a few places to ridiculously generous reviews,” Boyar mused. “Entertainment Weekly called it ‘bracing in its intensity’ and the New York Times praised its ‘eloquent flights of fancy.’ I’m sorry to say that »

Pepper Returns for American Horror Story: Freak Show

12 September 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Whilst the rest of the cast of 'American Horror Story' tend to enjoy a fresh start every season by acquiring a new character and fresh role to tackle it appears that actress Naomi Grossman will be the first to reprise a role from a previous season. Grossman, who played Pepper back in 'Ahs: Asylum', is back and can be spotted alongside the World's smallest woman Jyoti Amge in a new still promoting FX's 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' which is due to premiere on Wednesday 8 October. The action of 'Freak Show' takes place 12 years before 'Asylum' so its perfectly plausible that Pepper can pop up in both. The new season also stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare, Emma Roberts, Finn Wittrock, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch and Patti Labelle.

HBO not moving forward with Ryan Murphy's sexy Anna Torv lesbian drama

11 September 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Somehow, Ryan Murphy’s ultra-sexy drama series is not getting made at HBO — despite starring Anna Torv, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jaimie Alexander, Michelle Monaghan, Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley.

HBO has shut the door on Open, the Glee and American Horror Story co-creator’s risque take on modern romance that was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

The premium network’s programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement: “After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Welcome to Me’

11 September 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Borderline personality disorder turns out to be more of a laughing matter than it probably should be in “Welcome to Me,” a strange and often startlingly inspired media/mental-illness comedy directed by actress-filmmaker Shira Piven. After drifting into a semi-dramatic mode in her earlier Toronto-premiered indies, “Hateship Loveship” and “Girl Most Likely,” , where she proceeds to work through her deep-seated emotional and psychological wounds on live TV. At 86 minutes, this breezily bonkers item doesn’t overstay its, er, welcome, spelling a possible warm reception in niche theatrical and VOD play.

The chief virtue of Eliot Laurence’s first-produced screenplay is not just its simple yet comically fertile premise, but also the brisk and blithely implausible manner in which it’s presented. This is not a movie that wastes any time trying to explain itself. Not long after she’s introduced watching her massive VHS collection of infomercials and “Oprah” reruns »

Info on FX's "American Horror Story: Freak Show" has been coming in slowly but surely, and in Entertainment Weekly’s Fall TV Preview we learn a bit more about all the characters...

...especially John Carroll Lynch's "Twisty the Clown" and a very popular one who's returning from "Asylum."

Per EW, this season’s main villain is a nasty fella (and murderer) named Twisty the Clown, portrayed by Lynch, who has retired in Jupiter, Florida, and is not thrilled by the arrival of the freak show.

“He’s out to make their lives a living hell,” explained "Ahs" exec producer Ryan Murphy. “He’s wearing a mask on the lower part of his face, and there comes a point in the season where he takes the mask off, and when you see what’s under, you will faint in terror.”

12 Comic Book Movie Characters Screwed By Their Adaptation

9 September 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

Comic book movies have produced some of the most popular characters in cinematic history; Iron Man, Superman, Batman, Wolverine, Spider-Man and, most recently, Star-Lord to name but a few.

One thing these popular characters have in common, in terms of their movie depictions, are their portrayals either being faithful to the comic book source material or being tweaked in a manner that a movie necessitates (for example, in the comics, despite not being superhuman, Batman is capable of strength feats far beyond those of any real world human being, which is toned down in the movies) – in which case the changes can be excused and accepted.

However, a number of comic book movie characters are either changed completely unnecessarily or in a manner which renders them completely unrecognisable from the source material – and that’s something that fans of the characters simply won’t stand for and, in their eyes, »
