'Selma' Biopic Adds Carmen Ejogo as Martin Luther King Jr.'s Wife

7 April 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Carmen Ejogo is in talks to play Martin Luther King Jr.'s wife Coretta Scott King in the upcoming biopic Selma.

David Oyelowo is set to play Martin Luther King Jr., with Tom Wilkinson starring as U.S. President Lyndon Johnson in this drama that details the 1965 march from Selma, Alabama to the state capitol of Montgomery where African-American citizens tried to secure their voting rights, only to be beaten back by the police. It took three attempts for the rally to get off the ground, because the marcher's numbers kept increasing each time. Coretta Scott King, who married Martin Luther King Jr. in 1956, was a part of the march with her husband during the Selma Voting Rights Movement.

Ava DuVernay (Middle of Nowhere) is directing from a script she co-wrote with Paul Webb. Lee Daniels had once been attached to direct, but he is no longer involved in the project. »

The Eleven Best Accessorized Men in History

24 March 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Everyone has heard the expression “Clothes make the man”, but a few really insightful guys know the truth: accessories make the man. So here’s our list of the very best accessorized men we’ve ever seen. Because any guy can wear a suit and tie, but it takes a real man to wear a giant scarf, half a dozen necklaces, and a wrist-ful of bracelets all at the same time.

It's Good to Be King

Premiere April 2 at 10p Et/ 9p Pt

Ivan the Terrible

This sixteenth-century czar has a truly terrible reputation for bursts of anger and outbreaks of mental illness, but this guy definitely knew that there was more to an outfit that a shirt and some pants. From fur-lined hats and ornate brocade cloaks to scepters and truly incredible shoes, Ivan would never have been seen wearing ordinary clothes. We think we might just start referring »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Blu-ray Review

23 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s hard not to be impressed by blockbusters right now.  2013’s top three films were The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Iron Man 3 and Frozen.  All good to great movies.  Catching Fire proved the most successful of the lot, grossing well over $400 million, and even outperformed the first film.  Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss Everdeen, who is forced to compete in a battle royale yet again in the savage Quarter Quell with Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) at her side, and with her love Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) watching from a distance.  My review of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire follows after the jump.  Confidently picking up the story where the first film last left off, Katniss has survived the seventy-fourth hunger games with Peeta (a first in the history of the event), and is now suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  She wants to be with Gale, but as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) makes clear, »

Oprah Winfrey Agrees To Produce Paramount's Civil Rights Drama Selma

26 February 2014 10:29 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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: Male leggings or meggings, endorsed by celebrities like Russell Brand and Justin Bieber, is a natural evolution from the skinny jean, say experts.

Brand was clicked in black meggings and he had teamed it up with white socks and sports shoes.

"Meggings are the natural evolution from the skinny jean and the once widespread baggy jean," dailystar.co.uk quoted Tom Hunt, co-founder of sTitch Leggings firm, as saying.

Meggings are popular among celebrities as singer Lenny Kravitz pulled off skin tight leather with knee-high boots, while teen singing sensation Justin Bieber went all white for his performance.

Exclusive: Dominic Sherwood Vamps it Up for Vampire Academy

5 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

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, »

These Girls Don't Look That Excited to Be Taking a Selfie With Bradley Cooper

4 February 2014 7:35 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

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 »

Nominated for Nothing: 'Lee Daniels' The Butler'

27 January 2014 6:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

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 Comes Home March 7th With Feature-Length Documentary

25 January 2014 1:50 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

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 »
