A couple of years ago, Lee Daniels was set to direct Selma, the true story of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. marches from Selma to Montgomery in order to procure voting rights for African Americans. The killer cast was pretty much signed, sealed and delivered, with David Oyelowo as the leader, and a supporting cast comprised of Hugh Jackman, Liam Neeson, Ray Winstone, Cedric The Entertainer, Robert De Niro and Lenny Kravitz. At the very last minute, funding fell through, and Daniels moved on to other projects, stranding Selma. Eventually the project rose from the ashes, with Oyelowo still attached to star. And now there.s some money to play with: Deadline reports that Paramount has purchased the domestic rights to the film and that a start date is imminent. Not only that, but there.s some serious muscle on the producing side: here comes Oprah Winfrey to save »

London, Feb 10: A UK company believes that men should be able to wear anything they wish, including male leggings.
East London-based firm sTitch Leggings, which was set up in Oct 012, has designed a range inspired by the celebrity trend, priced 25 pounds a pair, that its founders claim can look good for any occasion, the Daily Star reported.
sTitch Leggings were created by Tom Hunt, Luke Shipley and Joe Hollinworth, after they went to a fancy dress party wearing "ill-fitting female leggings".

In the upcoming film Vampire Academy (based upon the series of bestselling books by Richelle Mead), British heartthrob Dominic Sherwood plays Christian Ozera, a schoolboy who’s caught in an unusual love triangle…
not to mention a vampiric battle of the ages. Dread Central sat down with Dom last week, and he told us all about it.
Dread Central: Pretty much this whole film takes place on campus. So, we've gotta ask: What was your high school experience like?
Dominic Sherwood: We call it secondary school. It actually wasn't too bad, the only thing I really struggled with was, we didn't have an acting department, we didn't have a drama department so I couldn't study that from 11-16, it wasn't an option to us and it wasn't available. In fact, obviously because of that when I told people I wanted to be an actor, they were like, 'You should probably do something in, »

It's important not to freak out when you meet celebrities, but we would expect these women to be a little bit more enthusiastic when they met Bradley Cooper at the American Hustle premiere in Paris on Monday. Bradley popped up in the City of Light after spending the weekend in NYC, where he met up with pal Leonardo DiCaprio and Lenny Kravitz for a very sexy pizza party (and selfie) at Joe's Pizza in the West Village. We have to say, even Leo and Lenny look a little more excited to be taking a snap with one of the sexiest men alive! Bradley will undoubtedly meet more enthusiastic fans when he travels back to La to prepare for the Oscars later this month. He is nominated for best supporting actor for his work in American Hustle and will face off against Jared Leto, Michael Fassbender, and other talented actors. View »

The second installment in the franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire scored even better than the original at the box office and with critics.
Based on the second book in the novels by Suzanne Collins, the science-fiction movie continues the story of reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: First Class), who’s now on a victory tour after winning the Hunger Games in the first film. This time, she has to go through the deadly games again, with even higher stakes as rebellion is sparked in the outer lying districts of the dangerous Capitol.
Josh Hutcherson (Red Dawn), Woody Harrelson (Seven Psychopaths), Liam Hemsworth (The Expendables 2), Donald Sutherland (The Eagle Has Landed), Lenny Kravitz (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Stanley Tucci (Jack the Giant Slayer) and Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect) all return in their roles, and additions »
Just about every year, brilliant movies are utterly ignored by the Oscars. The Searchers, Groundhog Day, Breathless, King Kong, Casino Royale, Touch of Evil, Caddyshack, Mean Streets, The Big Lebowski, Shame — the Academy has a long history of overlooking comedies, action movies, horror flicks, hard-boiled genre pics, artsy foreign films, and documentaries that aren’t about World War II. This year, we’ll be taking a closer look at films that were too small, too weird, or perhaps simply too awesome for the Academy Awards. These are the Non-Nominees.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire didn’t surprise anyone by taking over the box office, but it surprised me by not only equaling the first film, but actually surpassing it.
Also not surprising, the film is moving to the home market fairly quickly, and hopes to sell you on special features. What some might find a bit surprising is that the release is piling all its eggs in one basket… sort of. Instead of putting the effort toward a slew of bonuses, many of which may be of little real value, this one gives you a nine-part “Making Of” documentary, and a commentary track. Likely the sort of thing that ultimately will prove far more interesting than a padded list of bonuses, some people may find it hard to divorce themselves from the feeling that a big list is somehow giving you more.
At any rate, take a look at »

If you've seen the full-length trailer for "Divergent," you understand why we're so excited about the dystopian romance based on author Veronica Roth's best-selling books. Roth's Chicago-set trilogy about a society where teenagers must choose Factions (communities) based on their character strengths (Erudite for the intelligent; Amity for the friendly; Candor for the honest; Abnegation for the selfless and Dauntless for the brave) is so popular the final book "Allegiant" broke publishing records on Oct. 22 by selling more than 455,000 books in its first day.
Moviefone had the chance to visit the "Divergent" set in Chicago, and aside from realizing just how ridiculously attractive the entire cast is, here are 10 things we learned about turning the young adult phenomenon into a movie. Stay tuned for even more coverage of "Divergent" as we get closer to its March 20 release date!

We’re breaking form this week and going alphabetical instead of preference order because of the Incredible diversity of product available for you to rent, buy, or stream over the next ten days. How does someone really compare “Sunrise” to “You’re Next”? Why bother?
If you need to know, “Closed Circuit” and “Runner Runner” aren’t really worth your time and “A.C.O.D.” and “Riddick” are flawed but everything else in here comes with varying degrees of recommendation, particularly the quiet beauty of “Sunrise” and the incredible charm of “Enough Said”. We’re also loading you up since we’ll be off next week seeing flicks in Park City at the Sundance Film Festival. There’s plenty in here to tide you over. Pick your favorites.
