5 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Chris Rock’s Top Five, the big financial success of the Toronto International Film Festival, is headed for theaters this December. The film, which also received critical raves, will open in limited release Dec. 5 and then expand Dec. 12. That release date will make the film eligible for awards season buzz. After a reportedly heated bidding war, Paramount snagged the movie for a whopping $12.5 million. 

In the movie, which is written and directed by Rock, Rock plays a comedian-turned-star of crappy movies who has gone serious in a movie about the Haitian Revolution. He’s engaged to a reality star (Gabrielle Union »

Paramount Sets ‘Top Five’ for Dec. 5 Release; Chris Rock Pushes Rosario Dawson Nom

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount has given Chris Rock’s comedy “Top Five” a release date of Dec. 5 in the U.S. followed by a wide release on Dec. 12.

The studio acquired worldwide distribution of “Top Five” a week ago following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival to strong reviews.

At the Variety Studio in Toronto, Rock said he hoped the film would get a release this year so Rosario Dawson can get an actress nomination. Dawson beamed and laughed, and thanked her costar-director.

The “Top Five” dates follow closely on Sony Classics’ announcement that it will open the Julianne Moore vehicle “Still Alice” this year as well.

Though the best-actor derby is already overcrowded, the five Oscar slots for best actress have fewer contenders, with strong possiblities so far including Reese Witherspoon, “Wild”; Shailene Woodley, “The Fault in Our Stars”; Hillary Swank, “The Homesman”; and Felicity Jones, “The Theory of Everything.”

Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel And Brit Marling To Audition For True Detective Season 2

16 September 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wrap has word of seven actresses who are trying out for a major role on True Detective this week. According to an exclusive report from writer Jeff Sneider, those auditioning for the HBO drama include: Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel, Brit Marling and Malin Akerman. Rounding out this list of potential tryouts include the lesser-known Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones) and Kelly Reilly (Flight).

According to Sneider, these actors will be reading for Nic Pizzolatto, the creator and screenwriter of True Detective. Sneider says that Dawson is a favourite, aided by a stellar recent track record working on Danny Boyle’s Trance, Chris Rock’s Tiff favorite Top Five and Netflix’s Daredevil series. Meanwhile, being a Puerto Rican actor in a show that takes place in California (and where all of the other rumored stars are white) could be an advantage over the other choices, »

If you haven't seen the first season of HBO's masterful True Detective, you really need to get on that now. Unless of course you enjoy crap television; in which case please continue viewing those awful reality shows.

16 September 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch seemingly good to go for "True Detective" season two, the one major part left to cast is the female lead. And as has been the case with nearly every movement surrounding the show, rumors are flying, and today comes a brace of new names that are apparently in the mix. But first, an update on two previously mentioned contenders. According to The Wrap, the recently rumored Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams have likely had the conversations but nothing is locked in (though they could still be in play), so the door has been opened to a host of other actresses to vie for the role. So, who are they? According to the the trade, Brit Marling, Oona Chaplin, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Jaimie Alexander and Rosario Dawson are all being looked at.

Scott Glenn Joins Marvel’s Daredevil As Stick

15 September 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In another move that shows how much inspiration the upcoming Daredevil Netflix series will draw from Frank Miller’s run in the comics, Marvel has cast Scott Glenn (The Hunt for Red October, Silence of the Lambs) as Stick, the mysterious martial artist famous for training both Elektra and the titular Man Without Fear.

Stick was created by Miller in 1981, where he’s depicted as a blind master martial artist who not only teaches a young Matt Murdock how to fight, but how to control his senses and develop his “radar sense.” Stick is also revealed to be the leader of a warrior order called The Chaste that regularly fought with a mercenary group known as The Hand.

Stick was last played by Terence Stamp in the terrible 2005 film Elektra from 20th Century Fox. The studio heads at Marvel must have erased that casting from their minds, however, as the »

Daredevil TV Series Casts Scott Glenn as Stick, Matt Murdock’s Mentor

15 September 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’ll most definitely be checking out Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix show (even though my excitement may have dimmed a bit in the wake of writer Drew Goddard’s departure).  The last we’d heard on the casting front was that Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) would be signing up for the role of Karen Page.  Now we’ve got confirmed news that Scott Glenn (The Silence of the Lambs, The Right Stuff) will also be joining the series as Stick, Matt Murdock’s mentor.  I can definitely see this working, Glenn has a terse reserve that allows him to be commanding without being broad. Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) will star as Murdock/Daredevil, along with Elden Henson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) as Murdock’s best friend and legal partner Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as the crime lord Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson, who has an unknown ‘critical’ role on the show. »
