'Munich' movie cover 'Munich' movie review: Steven Spielberg tackles political time-space continuum in wildly uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller Alternately intriguing and irritating, thought-provoking and banal, subtle and patronizing, the biggest surprise about Steven Spielberg's Munich is that it – however grudgingly – works. The film, which Spielberg himself has referred to as a "prayer for peace," follows five men contracted by the Israeli government to avenge the massacre of that country's athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Sizable chunks of this political thriller with a Message (capital "M") are simplistically written, clumsily acted, and handled with the director's notoriously heavy touch, but the old adage – blood begets blood – even if somewhat muddled, is too timely not to make an impact. Complex 'Munich' movie plot Based on George Jonas' 1984 book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, whose veracity has been questioned in some quarters, Munich begins as »

This week Neil Calloway looks at the possibility of owning shares in Hollywood stars…
Have you heard of Fantex? Unless you’re a fan of American Football or the financial markets, or both, the chances are you haven’t.
That may be about to change, however. Fantex was set up about a year ago, enabling people to buy shares in professional athletes in the Us. The player gets a one time lump sum from the company, and people then buy shares in that star in return for a chunk of their future earnings. The shares then increase and decrease in relation to how well the athlete is doing at the time.
Recently, there have been reports that Fantex are moving into Hollywood, and soon you may be able to buy stock in your favourite movie stars. Sounds good, right? If they do a deal with Daniel Craig I’d certainly buy a Bond bond. »

Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »

Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig at the Oscars Sporting an ultra-cool look, Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig, both members of the hip, experimental band How to Destroy Angels, arrive at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Trent Reznor, formerly the frontman of the alternative rock group Nine Inch Nails, and fellow How to Destroy Angels band member Atticus Ross went on to share the Best Original Score Oscar for their work on David Fincher's Facebook movie The Social Network. After Reznor's Oscar win, "I want to thank you like an animal" became a Twitter hit – in reference to a similar-sounding line found in the Nine Inch Nails' 1994 song "Closer." Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' Oscar 2011 competitors were: Hans Zimmer, at one point the favorite for the Best Original Score Academy Award, for »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

The new Spectre featurette is one sure to set fans’ hearts racing. Detailing (one of) the movie’s car chases, it has the hallmarks of a classic Bond action sequence: high speeds, an iconic location, and a pair of absolutely outrageous vehicles.
Oh yeah, this is one for car buffs as well as Bond fans. Specially designed for the movie itself, Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 and Mr Hinx’s Jaguar C-X75 bring a new level of sleekness and power to the franchise, hurtling around the streets of Rome in a thrilling cat-and-mouse pursuit.
Although there’s no sign of Daniel Craig, Dave Bautista appears to share a few words after his hotly-anticipated casting as the primary henchman. Director Sam Mendes doesn’t give much away in the video beyond the location of the chase, the exclusive nature of the cars, and the general excitement of the scene. »

A new Spectre video blog has been released, and this one has the cast and crew (including director Sam Mendes and star Dave Bautista) sharing a few details on a car chase in Rome between Daniel Craig's James Bond and Mr. Hinx (Bautista). Bond is behind the wheel of an Aston Martin DB10, with Hinx in hot pursuit in a Jaguar C-X75. There's some great shots of both vehicles zooming through the empty streets of Rome, and I couldn't help but chuckle at Bautista's »

We've seen the first official shot of Daniel Craig in Spectre and the first, exciting teaser, and now we have a handful of images from Craig's next outing as James Bond. Yes, Craig looks immeasurably sexy, as he always does as Bond, and now we have a look at villains, played by Christoph Waltz (seen only in shadow . . . spooky!) and Guardians of the Galaxy's Dave Bautista. Take a peek before the Nov. 6 release. »
I have immersed myself in James Bond lately, taking the time recently to begin diving into Ian Fleming's original novels for the first time (I'll be finishing "Casino Royale" later today) and also purchasing the "Bond 50" Blu-ray set. The goal is what will be nearly six months of features surrounding the Bond franchise leading up to the Nov. 6 global release of Spectre, the 24th Bond film in the franchise. To say I'm excited about it would be an understatement and I'm growing increasingly excited reading Fleming's origin of the character, particularly because I'm learning just how well Martin Campbell handled Casino Royale, though I'm equally anxious to return to that movie as well, but I digress... Today we have a few new pictures and a new video blog for the upcoming Spectre, this one coming from the set of the new film focusing on a car chase through the »

Daniel Craig – Mr. Bond himself – joined director Sam Mendes on set, and the cast and crew were kind enough to give fans an inside look behind Spectre. In the two below vlogs, Craig and Mendes are joined by 007’s new castmates, Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour).
Naomi Harris, our Moneypenny as per Skyfall’s last reveal, makes a brief appearance as well. Ralph Fiennes – best known for Harry Potter or Schindler’s List, depending on your age – returns as M, taking over the reigns on MI6 from Judi Dench. Ben Whishaw, clad in a toque, parka, and stripped socks, also continues with his affable nerdy/hipster “thang” as our generation’s perfect Q. »

Sony Pictures have released a new video blog for their upcoming James Bond movie Spectre which offers a brand new look behind-the-scenes of the 24th 007 adventure. The featurette looks at the new Aston Martin to be used in the film, as well as a new, top line Jaguar, which is driven by Dave Bautista’s character and all round bad guy, Mr Hinx.
The focus of the video is the ‘iconic’ chase scene which was shot in Rome earlier this year, and offers headshot quotes from Bautista, and director Sam Mendes.

"I love the idea of this fantastic car being in this sort of one-on-one battle with another incredible car." The latest behind-the-scenes video blog from Eon Productions for James Bond's Spectre features an early look at the epic car chase filmed in Rome, Italy. In this scene, Dave Bautista plays Mr. Hinx who has engaged in a night-time car chase with 007, played by Daniel Craig. We also get a bit of director Sam Mendes talking about how excited he was to film this sequence, and a look at the various Aston Martin cars that are a part of the production. It's a very short tease, with barely a glimpse at one of the many scenes in the film. I'm already crazy excited for this. The two cars are Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 and Mr. Hinx's Jaguar C-X75. Here's the third behind-the-scenes video for Sam Mendes' new Bond Spectre, »

There's nothing quite like a James Bond car chase, and it looks like 007 fans can look forward to another spectacular chase sequence in Spectre.
Sam Mendes directed a car chase through the streets of Rome involving the Aston Martin DB10 and the Jaguar C-X75.
Speaking about the stunt, Mendes said: "I love the idea of this fantastic car being in a one-on-one battle with another incredible car from Jaguar, which is similarly extraordinary actually.
"So it's a cat-and-mouse game through the night time streets of Rome, at great speed, between two of the fastest cars in the world."
Bautista added: "It's amazing. It's one of those scenes that's going to be very iconic. Just with the two cars racing through the streets of Rome - I mean, »

Sony Pictures and MGM today released a new video blog from the set of director Sam Mendes’ new Bond film Spectre, as well as a pair of new images. The story finds Daniel Craig’s Bond receiving a cryptic message from his past that sends him on a journey to uncover a sinister organization, while M (Ralph Fiennes) battles political forces to keep the secret service alive. This video blog reveals that the chase is between Mr. Hinx (Dave Bautista) driving a Jaguar and James Bond driving his signature Aston Martin. It also goes in depth on the design of the cars, and it's interesting because I too recently purchases eight Aston Martins. So alike, Spectre production and I.
