He may not wield a hammer and a red cape is surplus to his sartorial requirements, but the Thor at the centre of the epic adventure Kon-Tiki has more than enough drive and passion to compensate. Nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe way back in 2013, the wait for this gem to wash up on UK shores has been a long but ultimately rewarding one - not unlike the central narrative of the film.
Based on the stunning true tale of a Norwegian's quest to prove historical 'fact' wrong, this impressively immersive movie places you right at the heart of Thor Heyerdahl's (Pål Sverre Hagen) brave but borderline suicidal mission in 1947 to cross 4,300 miles of the Pacific Ocean in a balsa wood raft built without modern »

It looks like Christina Hendricks is dealing with her departure from Sterling Cooper & Partners by hitting the road. According to multiple sources, the Mad Men actress has joined the main cast of Roadies, a music-centric comedy created, written and to be directed by Jerry Maguire helmer Cameron Crowe for premium cable network Showtime.
Roadies follows the day-to-day life of individuals involved in a massively successful rock tour, as seen through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes – the crew members who make each show happen. Hendricks will take on the meaty role of Shelli, the band’s production manager, who is ““ingenious, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it.”
Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Peter Cambor and Keisha Castle-Hughes are also on board the ensemble series in main roles, but Hendricks’ involvement just makes us more excited for what’s sure to be a »

There was a baby boom in Hollywood this year, and those babies' mothers had a lot to say. ETonline breaks down the greatest new mother quotes of 2014!
1. Eva Mendes on vomit and the struggles of being a baby:
"I've learned that it's way harder to be a baby. Everything is a struggle for her. For instance, I haven't thrown up since the '90s and she's thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it's like to be a baby." – The Violet Files
Mendes welcomed baby Esmerelda with Ryan Gosling on Sept. 12.
2. Olivia Wilde on the selflessness of motherhood:
"The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority. The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to, and I think that's really freeing... I think it allows you to put yourself in other people's shoes...the empathy »
The festival, celebrating its 30th anniversary, will recognize the actors both for the accomplishments of their career and for their recent turns as physicist Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane Wilde Hawking, respectively.
“These two actors continue to impress, and we are honored to have them at Sbiff to celebrate their fantastic body of work,” said executive director Roger Durling. “Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones’s performances together in ‘The Theory of Everything’ are nothing short of an astonishing collaboration, recalling the alchemy of Daniel Day-Lewis and Brenda Fricker in ‘My Left Foot.'”

As you probably know, Paul Fieg (Bridesmaids) is attempting to put together an all-female team of ghost hunters, but we'll get to the ladies in just one second as today's story begins with a seemingly abandoned idea from a couple of rising Hollywood actors as well as an actor interested in starring in the reboot. Michael De Luca, co-president of production for Columbia Pictures, told Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, news that Ryan Gosling was interested in the project while also adding Feig wants Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone for the project. In addition to that, The Daily Beast reports Melissa McCarthy, Amy Schumer and Lizzy Caplan have also shown interest in what is described as »

Ryan Gosling can’t be Ryan Gosling forever. This year, he’s made moves away from his current position as Hollywood’s King of All Things Hot. He’s wifing up, taking a break from filming, and fulfilling Dilf duty with his newborn babygirl, which leaves the throne wide open. Which of Hollywood’s other hotties has what it takes to fill Gosling’s shoes? Which one can make you feel turned on, protected, rejected, and intrigued all at the same damn time? These 10 actors are certainly worth considering.

Fifty Shades of Grey will be Jamie Dornan’s The Notebook. Regardless of whether critics love or hate the film, women and their BFFs will flock to the movies in droves and fall in love with Dornan as a brooding, charming, sexy billionaire with a secret, just like they did with Gosling’s bleeding heart Noah. It’s unavoidable. »

One of the two films director Terence Malick shot back to back in 2012 (the other being an Ryan Gosling starring untitled project, once called Lawless) Knight of Cups will get it's debut next February at the Berlin Film Festival, and an absolutely beautiful, lyrical first trailer has debuted. Little is known about the films story, other than it seems to be exploring excess and fame through the experiences of Christian Bale's Rick, but the movie looks stunning thanks to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, Children of Men, and Malick's own Tree of Life and To The Wonder). Mix that with a stellar cast, including Bale, Antonio Banderas, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy, and Cate Blanchett, and this is one movie to definitely keep an eye on. Knight of Cups is set for release sometime next year. »

Director Paul Feig has been emailing Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal about "Ghostbusters 3." And now, because of the hack, we have an idea of what to expect from the new movie, which Feig says will be a reboot. Possible Spoilers Ahead: In the film, humans aren't afraid of ghosts, because ghosts don't exist. But when a convicted murderer turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by "a supercharged electrical storm," the murderer is given the power to raise an army of ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history. These ghosts will have to face the Ghostbusters, "four very different women" who must "figure out in funny, scary and action-packed ways how to save New York City and the world." The Ghostbusters will work for the Us government, but because ghosts don't exist, the government will continually disavow their relationship. Feig wants Cecily Strong to play the team's bureaucratic nemesis, »

A brand-new plot synopsis for the film reads: "Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup.
"Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick's father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?"
The actors are riding high on adulation for their lead roles in The Theory Of Everything and will be the focus of a tribute at the Arlington Theatre.

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is currently developing an all-female Ghostbusters reboot for Sony Pictures, and it seems like most fans of the franchise aren't too excited about it. I do have some interesting news that might spark some interest in you, though. Channing Tatum is looking to do a spin-off of this new reboot that would star himself and Chris Pratt, which is something I would actually like to see!
According to emails that the Daily Beast has gone through, Tatum pitched Sony executives on the idea. This is what he had to say about the franchise as a whole:
“Let us show the world The DarkSide and let us fight it with all the glory and epicness of a Huge Batman Begins Movie. I know we can make this a huge franchise. Fun adventure craziness. Come Oonnnn!!!”
I have to say, I love Tatum's enthusiasm. It seems like he »

As I'm sure you're well aware, a massive hacking of Sony Pictures has taken place, which has resulted in a flurry of revelations as emails between Sony executives and their contacts have been made public. A variety of outlets have covered the story in detail and it all reads like a dirty memoir, while at the same time offers fascinating insight into an industry that somehow manages to keep a lot of its dirty laundry quiet. You hear rumblings every now and then, but nothing too damning or revealing. With this recent hack the studio has reportedly had to suspend filming on some of its features as it can't process payments and in our first story looking at the fallout we'll take a look at the saga of one film that was once in Sony's hands and how it came to find its way to Universal.

The Santa Barbara Film Festival's Cinema Vanguard Award was created in recognition of actors who have forged their own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film. It's makes for as subjective a reading as anything, I suppose, but this year's honorees are a fair enough choice: "The Theory of Everything" stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. "These two actors continue to impress," Sbiff Roger Durling said. "Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones's performances together in 'The Theory of Everything' are nothing short of an astonishing collaboration, recalling the alchemy of Daniel Day-Lewis and Brenda Fricker in 'My Left Foot.'" The accolade will be awarded during a tribute presentation on Thursday, Jan. 29. Previous Cinema Vanguard honorees include Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Adams, Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, Nicole Kidman, Christoph Waltz, Vera Farmiga, Stanley Tucci, Peter Sarsgaard, Kristin Scott Thomas, »

Now before you get all confused, let's just reiterate the fact that Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is working on a reboot of Ghosbusters with The Heat writer Katie Dippold, and it will have an all-female cast of paranormal investigators this time. So how is it possible that these three male stars could end up busting ghosts? Well, there's two very different prospects here. First of all, Sony Pictures wants Ryan Gosling to take a role in their developing Sinister Six (though who knows if that will even get off the ground), but the Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad star has expressed interest in the Ghostbusters reboot instead. The Daily Beast has been sifting through e-mails acquired from the ongoing hack of Sony Pictures, and one e-mail from Amy Pascal to Michael De Luca (co-president of production) indicates that Gosling's manager is interested in the one key male role that will be in Ghostbusters. »

Who you gonna call? Not just Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Rebel Wilson & co, apparently. After years of false starts, Sony's development of a third "Ghostbusters" movie took a new lease of life this year, as "Freaks & Geeks" and "Bridesmaids" mastermind Paul Feig signed on to develop a new reboot of the seminal '80s supernatural comedy that would focus on a team of female "Ghostbusters." Almost every comedy-minded actress in Hollywood has expressed interest, with reports in recent days that the likes of Stone and Lawrence are being targeted by Feig for the project, while Ryan Gosling is said to be interested in playing the male lead. But Gosling might not be the only A-list dude to be slapping on a backpack, as The Daily Beast's picking at the bones of the Sony leak have revealed that there might be a second "Ghostbusters" project on the way. The idea comes, »

Ryan Gosling has kept a pretty low profile lately, but that could change soon as he is being considered for two major projects. Sony reportedly wants him for Sinister Six, while Gosling himself is interested in Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot. If he signs on for the latter he may join Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence, […]

Director Paul Feig is currently working on his female-led Ghostbusters reboot for Sony, which we know from recent leaked emails could feature Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Schumer, Lizzy Caplan or even Ryan Gosling. Though, that might not be the only Ghostbusters film in Sony's pipeline. According to emails that The Daily Beast has viewed, Channing Tatum ("21 Jump Street") pitched Sony executives on a Ghostbusters film that would be a spinoff of Feig's. Tatum wants to star in it, alongside his 10 Years co-star, Chris Pratt ("Jurassic World"). An email from Tatum to Pascal concerning Ghostbusters dated August 21 says, “Let us show the world The DarkSide and let us fight it with all the glory and epicness of a Huge Batman Begins Movie. I know we can make this a huge franchise. Fun adventure craziness. Come Oonnnn!!!” The next day, Hannah Minghella, co-president of production for Columbia Pictures, sent »
