Of all the great movies the Oscars have shunned over the years, Drive's snub in 2012 was a tough one to take.
Ryan Gosling stars as the Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver in his most mesmerising performance since he was a Jewish neo-Nazi in 2001's The Believer. Carey Mulligan is the struggling single mum who Gosling falls for, and a between-Breaking Bad seasons Bryan Cranston plays his mechanic partner in crime.
Nicolas Winding Refn's direction is suave and daring; he follows the blood, sweat and tears of The Driver's journey with total badassness and ends up with something in between Taxi Driver and Michael Mann's Thief... And then there's the soundtrack. What a soundtrack.
So when Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe announced that he was curating a score of new music for the film masterpiece, you can understand the anger and confusion it sparked. But »
Director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" continues filming in Michigan, with sources reporting that DC Comics' character 'Commissioner Gordon', a close ally of 'Batman' could appear in the new film.

The campaign is on again to have three-time Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston, who previously voiced 'Lt. Jim Gordon' in the 2011 DC Universe Animated Original Movie "Batman: Year One", to appear in the new film, this time not as 'Lex Luthor', but as 'Jim Gordon'.

Exclusive: Lost star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is tackling another role in a Sony film, this time joining Will Smith in the studio’s untitled NFL concussion drama directed by Parkland‘s Peter Landesman. Akinnuoye-Agbaje starred recently in disaster period pic Pompeii and the upcoming Annie remake for Sony. He’ll play real-life NFL safety Dave Duerson, a three-time Pro Bowl pick who died in 2011 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin, Bitsie Tulloch, and Albert Brooks also star in the film which centers on Smith’s forensic neuropathologist Dr. Bennett Omalu, whose studies on Cte prompt the NFL to take brain-related injuries seriously.

When the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul was originally announced shortly after AMC's hit drama came to a close, many believed that it would be a half-hour sitcom based on Bob Odenkirk's lawyer Saul Goodman. That's not the case, though, as Odenkirk recently revealed in an interview with THR. The show will actually be a drama with comedic elements.
In fact, the star of this impending follow-up to one of the most beloved cult dramas of all-time says that you can expect very little comedy as it begins to set up its own storyline. Bob Odenkirk explains:
"It's total drama, man. It's 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy."
Each hourlong episode of Better Call Saul is set in 2002, with a timeframe that will skip around to before and after the events seen in Breaking Bad. When the show was initially conceived, it was as a half-hour sitcom, something that changed »
Based on what we’ve seen of Better Call Saul thus far and the fact that Saul Goodman was a major source of comedic relief on Breaking Bad, I assumed the show would be more comedy than drama. However, according to Bob Odenkirk, that’s not the case at all. It’ll actually be just 15 percent comedy and 85 percent drama. The spin-off series will take place five years before Saul’s dealings with Walter White (Bryan Cranston). At that time, he was going by the name Jimmy McGill and, based on the teaser we got back in August, he wasn’t interested in representing guilty clients because there's too much aggravation involved. Hit the jump for more on what Odenkirk had to say about the show. Here’s what Odenkirk told THR about the tone: “It’s total drama, man. It’s 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy.” Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan »

Since it was announced shortly after Breaking Bad’s curtain call, AMC’s Better Call Saul has been a tricky butterfly to pin. Would this be a completely tangential story that remained fixed in Albuquerque? Would it forego the omnipresent sense of tension found in Vince Gilligan’s opus and instead create a more light-hearted affair? Will Bob Odenkirk’s Saul excel in his promotion from side character to out and out protagonist?
Well, unfortunately we’ll have to wait patiently until the show debuts in February of next year to find out the compressive answer. But the series isn’t exactly an unknown quantity, and thanks to a recent quote by Odenkirk himself, we have an early indication of Better Call Saul’s innate tone.
“It’s total drama, man,” Odenkirk told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy.”
Billed as a prequel of sorts, Better Call Saul »

In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter chief TV critic Tim Goodman, Bob Odenkirk revealed a lot of fun things about the highly anticipated Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul. Odenkirk talked about the show's prequel status to Breaking Bad, which will be set in 2002, prior to Walter White's story. According to THR, Odenkirk also confirmed the the hourlong spin-off will be a "total drama." "It's 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy," Odenkirk said. Odenkirk also acknowledged that during filming of the third season of Breaking Bad, Odenkirk had only seen about 10 minutes of the series, something that Bryan Cranston called him out on. »

Better Call Saul is being kept under wraps by Vince Gilligan, even from its own star, Bob Odenkirk. “I haven’t seen a frame of it,” he told THR. “I really don’t want to know what’s coming later and I don’t look back at what came before, I think it’s a perfectly good way to approach acting to not know what the f— is going on.” The rest of the piece is full of fun facts like how when Odenkirk was acting in the show’s third season, Bryan Cranston called him out for never actually watching the show. But the most relevant piece of information was that Odenkirk has confirmed the long rumored 85/15 drama/comedy split of Better Call Saul. Obviously Saul was one of the funnier characters in Breaking Bad lore, and when Better Call Saul was initially conceived, there were rumors it might »
As English-language versions of Godzilla went, Roland Emmerich's 1998 version didn't exactly set a high watermark. A movie that felt as though it was cobbled together in the wake of Jurassic Park's success, it fell far from the thought-provoking and poignant original, directed by Ishiro Honda in 1954, or even the increasingly goofy yet adorable sequels which followed.
Happily, Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla, released in time for the kaiju king's 60th birthday, is a far more fitting tribute to Japan's most famous giant monster. Viewing the movie again on its home release, it's interesting to note just how different it is from Guillermo del Toro's own kaiju movie Pacific Rim, which came out last year. Where Pacific Rim was a knowingly broad, camp sci-fi action film, with del Toro clearly revelling in childlike »
Directed by Gareth Edwards
The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
Having torn up movie screens for 60 years, Godzilla is now a staple part of pop culture and an icon of the giant movie genre. Sadly however, he is perhaps best known outside of his homeland of Japan for the abysmal 1998 Roland Emmerich attempt to Westernise the King of the Monsters. Directed by a man who had no interest in the character or history, Emmerich’s Godzilla was more or less a rubbish remake of The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms rather than a new beginning for The Big G. Thankfully, the reigns of the franchise have been handed to British director Gareth Edwards, a man who »

Aaron Paul continues to fight against Toys R Us’ decision to take Breaking Bad action figures off the shelves after a Florida mother started an online petition to have the toys removed from the toy store.
Toys R Us Removes Breaking Bad Toys From Stores
Florida mother Susan Schrijver launched the petition to remove Breaking Bad action figures form Toys R Us stores on Oct. 14, writing, “While the show may be compelling viewing for adults, its violent content and celebration of the drug trade make this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters.”
The petition reached 9,000 supporters on Oct. 21, and Toys R Us announced that “the action figures have taken an ‘indefinite sabbatical’” on Oct. 22.

Based on Amy-Jo Albany’s memoir about growing up in the care of her gifted but frequently absent musician father, Low Down focuses on what it was like for Amy (Elle Fanning) to turn to the love of her aging grandmother (Glenn Close) while Joe (John Hawkes) struggled as much with his heroin addiction as he did finding gigs. In the years between 1974 and 1976, surrounded by a ragtag bunch of Hollywood outcasts and eccentrics, Amy was witness to heartbreak and tragedy, but still hung onto the love she had for her family. Directed by Jeff Preiss, the film also stars Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Flea. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Elle Fanning talked about why she wanted to do this project, using her imagination to put herself in Amy’s shoes, learning about the jazz music that’s showcased in the film, having to kiss Peter Dinklage, »

Elle Fanning is super-excited about her next project: Halloween. She might be one of the hardest-working actresses in Hollywood—with four films in theaters in 2014, including the blockbuster Maleficent—but she's still only 16 and her Halloween costume is an elaborate production. "It's a secret," she says, when asked about her trick-or-treat dress-up plans. "But I'll give you some of my greatest hits: I was the Morton Salt Girl. I was Strawberry Shortcake. I've been a Barbie Statue of Liberty. I've been Mary Poppins. I was a Madame Alexander doll. I was a vampire, but that was like a very glamorous done-up vampire. »

Well, if you thought the whole Breaking Bad toys ordeal was over when Toys ‘R’ Us pulled the action figures from their shelves, you were wrong. While Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston posted some slightly humorous responses to the event on Twitter, his co-star Aaron Paul isn’t joking when he expresses his angry feelings towards Toys ‘R’ Us. Paul took to Twitter after it was announced that Toys ‘R’ Us was removing the toys from their shelves, citing what he believed to be more harmful things that the store was still selling, such as Barbies and violent video games. He even pretended to bring President Obama into the conversation. Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie?

Here's something you might not know: Toys R Us sells Breaking Bad figurines of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Here's something you might have predicted: parents aren't happy about the idea of their kids playing with figurines of bald, meth-dealing science teachers. One Florida mother is so outraged that her petition against Toys R Us stocking the toys, which feature Walter carrying a gun and a bag of meth, has made headlines this week. In an amusing twist of events, Bryan Cranston entered the controversy by tweeting a response to the woman's complaint: "Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures." I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest — Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) October 20, 2014 Meanwhile, Aaron Paul had less of a jokey response when he learned that Toys R Us had actually pulled the Breaking Bad figurines in response to the petition.
