Remembering Superman Reeve Ten Years After His Death

10 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Christopher Reeve: 'Superman' and his movies (photo: Christopher Reeve in 'Superman' 1978) Christopher Reeve, Superman in four movies from 1978 to 1987, died ten years ago today. In 1995, while taking part in a cross-country horse race in Culpeper, Virginia, Reeve was thrown off his horse, hitting his head on the top rail of a jump; the near-fatal accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He ultimately succumbed to heart failure at age 52 on October 10, 2004. Long before he was cast as Superman aka Clark Kent, the Manhattan-born (as Christopher D'Olier Reeve on September 25, 1952), Cornell University and Juillard School for Drama alumnus was an ambitious young actor whose theatrical apprenticeship included, while still a teenager, some time as an observer at London's Old Vic and Paris' Comédie Française. At age 23, he landed his first Broadway role in a production of Enid Bagnold's A Matter of Gravity, starring Katharine Hepburn. »

'Robin Hood' is getting an 'Avengers'-style makeover with new multi-film franchise

7 October 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr)  Lured by the success of Marvel’s "The Avengers," Sony Pictures is circling a high-priced pitch for a Robin Hood franchise that’s been compared in tone to the "Mission: Impossible" and "Fast and the Furious" films. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pitch for "Hood" from Cory Goodman and Jeremy Lott positions Robin Hood and his Merry Men as a sort of the Avengers of the Middle Ages who would appear in interconnected films. Goodman and Lott are accomplished in genre films both together and separately. They teamed up to develop "Lore." which is being directed by David Greene for Warner Bros. Goodman is also rebooting the "Underworld" franchise, while Lott penned a supernatural film called "The Falling," which has Zac Effron attached. »

Ben Affleck: I Was Insecure About Taking On the Congo – At First

6 March 2014 11:23 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Even Batman deals with confidence issues. Ben Affleck, who testified last week before Congress on behalf of the Congo, revealed to NPR's Morning Edition's David Greene on Thursday that he briefly struggled with feelings of insecurity before stepping up as a celebrity advocate for the region. “It seemed to me that what I had to offer at the time could be better used in the Congo and after that, in my sort of insecurity about not wanting to be somebody who does it without understanding it, led me to go,” Affleck explained.

DiCaprio's parents unfazed by 'Wolf of Wall Street' sex scenes

12 January 2014 12:32 AM, PST | | See recent RealBollywood news »

Melbourne, Jan 12: Leonardo DiCaprio has revealed that his parents weren't fazed by all the sex scenes that featured in his latest flick 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

When NPR's Morning Edition host, David Greene, asked the 39-year-old star about his parents reactions to the explicit scenes, he said that unlike his 23-year-old co-star Margot Robbie, who had to lie to her parents about the nudity in the film, he is almost 40 years old now, so he'd hope that he wouldn't have to answer to them, reported.

The hunky actor added that the scenes didn't faze his parents whatsoever because he was reading underground. »
