We haven't celebrated Justin Guarini's Diet Dr. Pepper commercial enough

26 March 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

To quote Marion Cotillard's Oscar speech, "Thank you life. Thank you love." There's no other expression of jubilance that can quite capture how much we appreciate that Justin Guarini is in a Diet Dr. Pepper commercial. The season one alum of "American Idol" plays a tiny, Prince-esque pop star named Lil Sweet Self-Employed. The crimson curls really make the look pop, but honestly, Guarini is serving up comedy here and it's delicious. I vote for more of these cola-based laughs. I laughed.  »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Kenneth Branagh teases Martin Scorsese movie adaptation of Macbeth

24 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kenneth Branagh has said a deal is "practically there" for Martin Scorsese to direct a movie adaptation of Branagh's 2013 Macbeth stage production.

A few months ago, "informal conversations" were said to have been held between the directors regarding the project.

Explaining that the play would also return to theatres, Branagh told BBC Radio 5 Live's Kermode and Mayo's Film Review: "We're practically there... We will remount the production and all things being well Mr Scorsese will direct a film version of that production.

"Fingers are hovering above pieces of paper. Everybody wants to do it, it's just a question of schedules. I'm very, very, very, very hopeful it's going to happen."

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard will both appear in another adaptation of Macbeth directed by Justin Kurzel.

The movie also stars Paddy Considine as Banquo, Elizabeth Debicki as Lady Macduff, and Southcliffe actor Sean Harris as Macduff.

Let's Finish Casting Disney's Live-Action 'Beauty and the Beast'

17 March 2015 4:44 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We have a Beauty (that would be Emma Watson). We have a Beast (that’d be Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens). We also have Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Maurice, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.

Can we all agree that whoever is casting Disney’s upcoming live adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is absolutely Nailing it? We don’t want to step on any toes, but we have a few suggestions for the rest of the cast:

Jean Dujardin as Lumiere

Dujardin was born to play the charming French candelabra. We literally cannot think of anyone who is more perfect for this part. And it’d be a good return to U.S. cinema, after mostly French films following his Oscar win for The Artist.

The Hitman: Agent 47 trailer & the videogame movie problem

17 March 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There are some excellent videogame-influenced movies out there. They're just not based on videogames...

Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter: The Movie, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, Doom, Doa: Dead or Alive, Max Payne, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D.

No, no, this isn’t a list of the worst movies ever made. It’s a choice selection of films from the last 20 years that have been based on videogames. And as you can see, it makes for grim reading. But why is that?

But before we get into that, some brief history.

“Videogames can never be art.”

Despite the huge success of the gaming industry, which is now the most profitable form of entertainment, videogames are still seen an inferior art form. The late, great Roger Ebert famously kicked a beehive in 2010 when he proclaimed that “Videogames can never be art.”, Long story short, »

How Rihanna's Fame Added Pressure for Her to Perform in DreamWorks' 'Home'

16 March 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rihanna has won GRAMMYs and sold out arenas, but when she stepped into the booth to record for DreamWorks' animated film Home, she didn't know what to expect.

News: Rihanna Is the New Face of Dior

In a sit-down with Et's Kevin Frazier, the "FourFiveSeconds" singer admitted that she was nervous recording voice-overs for the movie, out March 27.

"You don't want to just get the job because you're famous," Rihanna said. "[I want to do] something that Dreamworks can really stand behind and not something that they will say, 'Ok, we should have thought this over.'"

The movie follows Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons), a loveable extraterrestrial who lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people. On his journey, Oh forms a friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip (voiced by Rihanna). The movie also features the voices of Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez.

Rihanna Is the New Face of Dior, And Is the First Black Woman to Do So

13 March 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rihanna is making history.

The 27-year-old superstar will star in Dior's fourth installment of their "Secret Garden" campaign -- a series featuring models posing in the palace of Versailles, clad in Dior creations -- the fashion house confirmed on Friday. She will be shot by famed photographer Steven Klein, with the film and print versions of the campaign scheduled to run this spring.

But as if being an official Dior girl wasn't amazing enough, Rihanna's highly anticipated campaign also marks the first time a black woman has been chosen to front the French fashion brand. Other celeb Dior spokeswomen include A-listers Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Marion Cotillard.

Love at First Fight | 2015 Rendez-Vous with French Cinema Review

Once Bitten: Cailley’s Unique Exploration of Summer Lovin’

Since premiering at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where it picked up the Fipresci Prize in the Directors’ Fortnight sidebar, Thomas Cailley’s directorial debut, Love at First Fight has been treated to generous critical acclaim. Nabbing three César Awards in February, including for Best First Film, Most Promising Actor, and a Best Actress award for Adele Haenel (trumping competition that included Juliette Binoche and Marion Cotillard). Basically a romantically inclined drama that subverts its conventions by playing around a bit with gender norms, its winning protagonists make this strangely and unpredictably funny film quite charming. Its original title, Les Combattants literally means The Fighters, which would have been much preferred to the horrid English language surrogate.

The Conversation: One Never Cannes Tell… 2015 Cannes Film Fest Predictions

9 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With the world’s most prestigious film festival just around the corner, cineastes have been lasciviously salivating about what’s going to show up at Cannes, with wish lists appearing almost immediately after Berlin (a fest that had one of their most impressive line-ups ever) announced their awards. The remainder of the 2015 fest circuit looks to be a plentiful, diverse porridge, with many of the world’s most renowned auteurs’ sporting brand new titles. While many prognosticators will be sharing the same lists, more or less, hopes are incredibly high for a handful of sure bets, and a gaggle of hopefuls. The main competition always seems easier to postulate, though Thierry Fremaux always throws a few curves, (After the Battle in 2012, The Hunt in 2013 or last year’s Timbuktu, which won the Cesar for Best Picture recently, are a couple ready examples of under-the-radar titles).

Italy seems primed for saturation at the fest. »

First look at Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as a transgender artist in The Danish Girl

27 February 2015 11:52 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

There’s no rest for an Oscar winner.

Less than a week after taking home the Best Actor trophy at Sunday’s Academy Awards for his role in The Theory of EverythingEddie Redmayne is back on set of The Danish Girl, looking very un-like himself.

Redmayne stars as Danish-born Einar Wegener, one of the very person people known to have undergone gender reassignment surgery.  Born male, Wegener travelled to Germany and began gender surgery to become the artist known as Lili Elbe as early as 1930.  But the film looks at more than just Wegener’s transformation to that of a woman- it is a story of his marriage to Gerda (played by Alicia Vikander) in an intimate look at what it means to have the person you love desperately seek a dramatic change.

Redmayne seems poised to earn his second Best Actor nod with his role in the film »

Another Oscar? Eddie Redmayne Plays A Transgender Icon In The Danish Girl Image

27 February 2015 11:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Keaton should just take the year off. No matter how good the Birdman star is in this fall’s Boston Globe drama Spotlight, next year’s Best Actor Oscar could quite possibly be Eddie Redmayne’s for the taking once again. The first image from Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, which stars the Theory of Everything actor (who last partnered with Hooper on Les Misérables) as a transgender pioneer, has surfaced online, finding Redmayne looking radiant as always.

Redmayne stars in the pic as Einer Wegener, who would later rename herself Lili Elbe, one of the first men to undergo a sex reassignment surgery. Adapting David Ebershoff’s novel, The Danish Girl specifically looks at the complicated relationship between Elbe and her wife Greta (Alicia Vikander), who became a famed artist for painting Elbe in drag.

The project has been a hot commodity for years, with such respected »

Eddie Redmayne Channels Transgender Pioneer Lili Elbe for New Film

27 February 2015 6:20 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Following his Oscar-winning turn as Stephen Hawking, Eddie Redmayne is bringing another real-life person’s story to the big screen.

In The Danish Girl, Redmayne will play Lili Elbe, a transgender pioneer and one of the first people to undergo sexual reassignment surgery.

PR Photos

Hitting theaters in 2016, the film is based on an award-winning book of the same name, which tells a fictionalized version of Elbe’s story. This is Redmayne’s first major role to follow The Theory of Everything (and will hopefully erase any memory of Jupiter Ascending).

First Look: Eddie Redmayne goes from Oscar to 'The Danish Girl'

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It took a long time to get off the ground, but the big screen adaptation of David Ebershoff's novel "The Danish Girl" is finally in production.  The fictionalized account Lili Elbe's life features Eddie Redmanye in the title role and reunites him with his "Les Miserables" director Tom Hooper.  The first image of this year's Best Actor winner as Elbe has now been revealed. Elbe is known as being one of the first people to have sexual reassignment surgery (or at least have it publicly revealed).  The movie centers on her relationship with her wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander) and how her transition affected their lives.  The project has been in the works for years with Tomas Alfredson and Lasse Hallström both attached to direct at one time and Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard and Charlize Theron all potentially on board to play Elbe.
