The Hollywood News is eleven years old this month. That’s right, we are now well on our way to out teen years and boy have we come a long way since 2003. And it’s not just us, the film industry has gone from strength to strength during the last decade. They finally learned how to make a decent super-hero film for one. As part of our celebrations each of our team has been tasked with writing a piece on one of their favourite films of the last eleven years. This writer’s offering can be nothing other than Looper.
Released in 2012 and directed by the brilliant Rian Johnson, who will be directing Star Wars VIII don’t you know, Looper is a fantastic time-travel movie. Firstly having been a fan of Johnson’s work since Brick I was very excited for the release of Looper, and thankfully I wasn’t disappointed. »

When Warner Bros announced its slate of DC movies a month or two back, there were a couple of notable omissions. The big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman for one, which Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jack Thorne and David S Goyer are all involved with in various roles. The explanation for it not being part of the announcement is that Sandman was published under the Vertigo imprint, rather than the DC name. Vertigo movies are being dealt with separately by Warner Bros.
Then there's Justice League Dark, which came out under the DC Comics banner, but has no shortage of Vertigo characters in it. The film take on it has been known about since 2013, and it's going under the working title of Dark Universe.
One of the most beloved routines from Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show reign is about to get its own television show: Lip Sync Battle, based on those ridiculous competitions that pit the late night host up against celebrities to see who can pantomime pop songs better, will head to Spike TV in 2015. Fallon and actors John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant, a pair of lip sync vets, will executive produce the show as well as appear and "perform" on occasion.
The "lip sync battle" was a game that Merchant created with »

Seven years after winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose (2007), Marion Cotillard could land a second nomination for her role in Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne’s Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), which is Belgium’s Oscar submission. She was also in 2013 Cannes selection The Immigrant, which was released in May of this year. Since La Vie en Rose, Cotillard has mainly worked on small indie films both inside and outside of America, with the exception of Christopher Nolan‘s Inception (2010) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently revealed that had Chris Pratt turned down the role of Star-Lord, he and Marvel would have made an offer to Glenn Howerton. At this point, it's hard to imagine anyone turning down Marvel for any reason except other contractual obligations or scheduing conflicts. Said Gunn, "Glenn came along a little bit later, but there was a good chance that, if I didn't cast Chris, that I would've cast Glenn Howerton in the role." That's interesting considering the long, Long, Long list of candidates initially in the running for the role. To be exact, Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), James Marsden (X-Men) Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises »

10 Things I Hate About You is one of the best high school movies of 1999, and some of the cast recently got together for a little reunion. Over the weekend, the film's screenwriter, Karen McCullah, tweeted a photo of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Keegan (sporting a sweater cape), David Krumholtz, and Susan May Pratt, along with cowriter Kirsten Smith. Aside from the late Heath Ledger, there are some notable absences; Julia Stiles, Larisa Oleynik, and Gabrielle Union are all missing. The fact that Keegan is wearing neither a white nor black t-shirt is distressing, but the fact that this happened at all is pretty awesome. Need more '90s throwbacks?

Though she's been busy with young adult fare like The Divergent Series: Insurgent (watch the teaser trailer here) and the romance The Fault in Our Stars, actress Shailene Woodley is making some time for something much different. THR reports the young star is currently in talks to take the female lead in the developing film about Edward Snowden from controversial director Oliver Stone. Previously we heard that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was in the running to play the Nsa whistleblower who fled the country to avoid prosecution for his headline-making actions, and it sounds like he's still involved at this time. More below! The film has been said to be based on both Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man and Time of the Octopus, the upcoming novel from Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena. The film itself follows Snowden as he »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.
New on DVD and Blu-ray
"22 Jump Street"
Can Chris Miller and Phil Lord make anything entertaining? When "21 Jump Street" the movie was announced, it seemed utterly ludicrous, if not downright insulting. Yet here we are enjoying the sequel, digging on the continued doofy adventures of Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum). What's next, a dazzling movie about Legos?!
"20,000 Days on Earth"
This documentary about writer and musician Nick Cave is just as weird and wonderful as its subject. It's a must-see for fans of Cave's oeuvre, but even if you don't know a Boy Next Door from a Bad Seed, you'll get a kick out of this strange film. Featuring appearances by Kylie Minogue, Ray Winstone, Warren Ellis, and Blixa Bargeld.

Shailene Woodley just had one heck of a summer with Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars, putting her in a comfortable spot where she can be more picky with projects coming her way. We just saw the first trailer for next year’s Insurgent and now we’re hearing that she may be up for a the female lead role in the intriguing Edward Snowden movie from Oliver Stone. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is already set to play the controversial Nsa leaker and Woodley would play his girlfriend in »

Never one to shy away from a hot-button topic when he can make a drama about it, Oliver Stone is busy putting together a film about the changing fortunes of American secrecy whistle-blower Edward Snowden. He has Joseph Gordon-Levitt now aboard to play the man himself and Shailene Woodley has entered talks to play Snowden’s girlfriend.Stone’s film, which adapts both Luke Harding’s book The Snowden Files: The Inside Story Of The World’s Most Wanted Man and the novel written by Snowden’s lawyer Anatoly Kucherena called Time Of The Octopus, doesn’t have a name at the moment. But the plot will follow his shift from Hawaii to Hong Kong, his meeting with documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (who has shot her own account of the event, Citizenfour) and Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald where he handed over copious documents. From there, it will track his »

Actress Shailene Woodley took her time in choosing her follow-up project after this summer’s one-two punch of Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, but despite the fact that she already has her own franchise, it appears that she’s still very much game for more difficult subject matter. THR reports that Woodley is in talks for the female lead role in director Oliver Stone’s untitled film about Nsa leaker Edward Snowden, which has Joseph Gordon-Levitt set to play the controversial figure. Woodley is poised to take on the role of Snowden’s girlfriend in the pic, which is based on two Snowden-centric books: Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files and Anatoly Kucherena’s upcoming Time of the Octopus. More after the jump. Per THR, preproduction on Stone’s untitled Snowden picture is currently underway in Germany with filming set to begin in January. Details regarding Stone’s »

Shailene Woodley is in negotiations for the female lead in director Oliver Stone's upcoming Edward Snowden movie tentatively titled The Snowden Files. The Divergent star will play the girlfriend of the Nsa whistleblower if she signs on, appearing opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden.
The Snowden Files will be distributed across the U.S. by Open Road. The film is based on Luke Harding's book The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man, as well as the upcoming book Time of the Octopus which was written by Edward Snowden's lawyer Anatoly Kucherena.
Luke Harding's nonfiction book follows Snowden as he moves from Hawaii to Hong Kong. There, he meets up with with documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald to hand over top-secret Nsa documents. Edward Snowden later sought asylum in Moscow. Anatoly Kucherena's book traces the time spent at »
Woodley would play Snowden's (Gordon-Levitt) long-term girlfriend Lindsay Mills, a dancer who has moved to Moscow to live with the Nsa whistleblower.
It was announced earlier this week (November 10) that Gordon-Levitt would play the lead role in the project, which is due to start production in Munich in January.
Watch the new trailer for White Bird in a Blizzard below: »
THR is reporting that Shailene Woodley is eyeing the female lead in Oliver Stone’s upcoming Edward Snowden film, which is currently without a title. Should she sign on, the actress would star as Snowden’s girlfriend, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the Nsa whistleblower.
Based on two different novels, Luke Harding’s The Snowden Files and Anatoly Kucherena’s upcoming Time of the Octopus, Stone’s untitled pic will head into pre-production in Germany this January and will undoubtedly cause some controversy upon release. Although, that’s hardly a surprise given the director’s history for speaking his mind and making his political views known through his films.
As for Woodley, as much as I like seeing her in stuff like Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, taking on a role in a more mature and adult-oriented project like this is definitely the right move to make. She’s »
