Madonna doesn't care what us mere mortals think, and who could blame her? Forget Queen Esther; Madonna was Queen of Dragons for Purim! You can't shush her during a movie! So why would terrible reviews stop her from directing another movie? They won't!
The book that's luring Madonna back to the director's chair is a politically charged love story by Rebecca Walker, "Adé: A Love Story." Walker, who is the daughter of Alice Walker and Mel Leventhal, has previously written non-fiction about feminism, sexuality, being multiracial and Jewish, and her painful, contentious relationship with her Pulitzer Prize-winning mother. "Adé" is a semi-autobiographical novella about a bisexual woman who, while traveling abroad with a friend, falls in love with a Swahili Muslim man named Adé. Their love affair, which takes place on an island off the coast of Kenya, is interrupted by political upheaval and much more.
Madonna co-wrote and directed »

Every year after the Oscars, Jimmy Kimmel puts on his own star-studded show, usually poking fun of Hollywood and its movies. This year, he enlisted the help of some of some popular actors to turn YouTube videos into big budget films, including: * "David After Dentist" and "Double Rainbow," starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, and Seth Rogen. * "Charlie Bit My Finger," starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth. * "Keyboard Cat," "Hamster on a Piano" and "Dramatic Chipmunk," starring Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, Ben Kingsley, Abbie Cornish and Mandy Patinkin. * "Sweet Brown - Ain't Nobody Got Time For That" starring Queen Latifah, Barkhad Abdi, Adam Driver and Matt Damon. Watch everything below.

In case you were blessed with the superhuman ability to withstand more television after enduring the 3 1/2 hour Oscar ceremony, then perhaps you tuned in (late) last night for a very special episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Or perhaps you went straight to bed like the rest of us. But no worries, because the highlights are now online. As is becoming tradition, the talk show host rounded up a small handful of stars to act silly in some videos, and Kimmel dropped a pair viral video inspired trailers. "Bitman Begins" kicks things off giving a dramatic retelling of "Charlie Bit My Finger" via Chris and Liam Hemsworth as the sibling pair, with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks also stopping by. After that is "Amewodeus," with Kevin Spacey, Gary Oldman, Christoph Waltz, Abbie Cornish and Mandy Patinkin, giving "Keyboard Cat," "Hamster On A Piano" and "Dramatic Chipmunk" the big screen treatment. It's »

Jimmy Kimmel always pulls out all the stops on his post Oscar-show, but this year he’s gone truly above and beyond. Is there any doubt that he is the King Of Late Night?
Our plan is to escort the movie business into the 21st century, so we enlisted the help of some of the greatest talents in the world of film to help us adapt popular YouTube videos into big-budget Hollywood movies.
Jimmy Kimmel enlisted several Hollywood stars and Oscar nominees to star in film trailer versions of YouTube classics last night (March 2).
Viral videos including Charlie Bit My Finger, Keyboard Cat and Double Rainbow were transformed into epic promos of future fictional dramas.
Kimmel's enemy Matt Damon also stars "in his most important deleted scene yet", before the real Sweet Brown interrupts him.
Jimmy Kimmel certainly had something special planned for his post-Academy Awards episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Right at the top of the show, Kimmel said adapting books was a thing of the past and it was time to move on to YouTube videos. That leads to four different trailers, each of which were amazing, based on popular clips from the video-sharing site.
First, Martin Scorsese presents "Bitman Begins," which is a Christopher Nolan-esque take on the "Charlie Bit My Finer" video, starring Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth as brothers at war. Rounding out the cast was Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, but the real star of the clip was the rooftop showdown between the brothers. Liam just likes to bite too much.
As he does every year, Jimmy Kimmel debuted silly, star-studded fake movie trailers on his show following the Oscars. This time, they were inspired by viral YouTube videos. Here are two of them. Bitman Begins, based on the family video Charlie Bit My Finger, in which an infant boy bites his toddler brother’s finger, features Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep as well as real life brothers Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth. The trippy Ameowdeus, a take on Keyboard Cat, Hamster on a Piano and Dramatic Chipmunk, stars Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, Ben Kingsley, Abbie Cornish and Mandy Patinkin. »

The long, long journey for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" wasn't solely dedicated to the effects-heavy technical production. Before cameras rolled, the filmmaker went through an arduous process to nail down his leading actors. Way back in the spring of 2010, Robert Downey Jr. and Angelina Jolie were tentatively slated to lead the sci-fi thriller, but by the fall the actress had pulled out, setting off an arms race for the vacant role. Natalie Portman, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Olivia Wilde and Blake Lively were all mentioned/considered for the part before Sandra Bullock signed on, with George Clooney joining the project at the end of 2010, replacing Rdj who had also exited. The rest is history, but what happened to the original duo? Cuaron, who recently sat down with THR's Stephen Galloway, provided some info on the departure. "I thought I had written a small movie ... just one character floating in space, »

‘RoboCop’ 2014 movie: Full-fledged flop at domestic box office (photo: Joel Kinnaman in ‘RoboCop’ 2014) Directed by José Padilha, and starring Joel Kinnaman and Abbie Cornish, Sony Pictures’ $100 million-budgeted RoboCop 2014 remake opened with disappointing numbers on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Things improved a bit over the weekend, but there’s no denying that RoboCop 2014 will become a major domestic box office bomb. (See also: José Padilha hates ‘RoboCop’ 2014 filmmaking process.) According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 "classic" (as mentioned elsewhere on this site, just about anything made before 2003 is considered a classic these days) landed in third place this extended Presidents Day Weekend, February 14-17, trailing both Warner Bros.’ overwhelmingly well-received The Lego Movie and Sony Pictures / ScreenGems’ low-budget romantic comedy About Last Night. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), and featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, »

There's a lot of Diy horror-themed jewelry on the market these days, but not as many many high-end designers have jumped in the game so far... which is a shame, because I've found that a lot of horror fans have pretty elegant taste, and quite a few have deep enough wallets to match. Photos: Slight Jewelry One of the more prestigious jewelry designers to get into the horror business is New York artist Amanda Campbell, whose pieces have graced fashion runways and red carpets around the world. Photos: Slight Jewelry While Campbell's company Slight Jewelery has turned out some genre-friendly designs (including official merch for the new RoboCop), their nod to pure horror is the “Brains” collection – a line of pendants, earrings and other elegant gold, silver and brass pieces shaped like moaning undead heads and anti-zombie weaponry (assault rifles, swords, axes, etc.), many accented with precious gems like diamonds and rubies. »

RoboCop, the latest in a string of '80s remakes, has a lot in common with the original directed by Paul Verhoven.. However, anyone expecting the same shock to the system that the 1987 flick delivered, will be disappointed. As police officer Alex Murphy, The Killing's Joel Kinnaman wears the suit well. He delivers in his role, as do the performances from the stellar supporting cast which includes Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson and Abbie Cornish. Read on before hopping into the squad car. 1. Ptsd Soldier: One of the strongest angles in the remake is the focus on Alex Murphy's intense emotional and physical struggles following a near-fatal car bomb. Kinnaman does the role originally »
New RoboCop 2014 movie delivered great hardcore action,drama & more. Columbia Pictures (Sony) released their new action/sci-fi/remake flick, "RoboCop," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty entertaining, serving up lots of action, coupled with intense drama, and more. The movie stars: Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. In the new flick, the year is set in 2028, and revolves around good cop, Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) and this OmniCorp company that's desperately trying to get approval for their army of robot protectors be put on American soil so they can maximize their revenue and profits. However, they keep getting turned down, because the American public doesn't feel good about an emotionless robot trying to protect them. In response to this, OmniCorp CEO ,Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton »
The Lego Movie built a second floor to its box office success yesterday, earning $13.03 million and just beating out the Kevin Hart-starring About Last Night, a remake of the Rob Lowe- and Demi Moore-topped 1986 comedy.
Two other revamps of films from the era of Reagan and Quiet Riot did less well: Endless Love, which stars Gabriella Wilde and Alex Pettyfer, raked in $7.3 million while Robocop, whose deep bench of acting talent includes Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, and Samuel Jackson (but definitely not Laurence Fishburne), scooped up $7 million. Maybe folks were disappointed they couldn »
