Is Catch Me Daddy's street-casting an antidote to Britain's toff-actor problem?

26 February 2015 10:18 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The stars of a gritty drama about a girl on the run from her father were spotted on the street. It’s a trail blazed by directors from Ken Loach to Shane Meadows, and has brought some of our most searing performances to the screen

Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar last week was the icing on the cake for what’s been a good spell for British acting. There was also recognition for the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Felicity Jones, Keira Knightley and Rosamund Pike at this year’s Oscars, and British actors have been routinely nabbing iconic American roles such as Martin Luther King (David Oyelowo), Solomon Northrup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and even Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis). Not to mention Spider-Man, Superman and the last Batman.

But it’s a certain kind of British actor who has been celebrated of late, as evidenced by Vanity Fair’s recent Hollywood issue, which »

Oscar Winner Julianne Moore on What She Learned Making ‘Still Alice’

24 February 2015 11:49 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The actress was long-tipped as this year’s Best Actress Oscar frontrunner, having already been recognized by several critics’ groups in their end-of-year prize-giving (Chicago, San Francisco, Washington DC and the National Board of Review), to go along with a Golden Globe win, Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations and, now, sure enough, an Oscar. In a relatively weak year for viable contenders, Moore’s stiffest competition came from fellow nominees Reese Witherspoon for “Wild,” Felicity Jones for “The Theory Of Everything” and Rosamund Pike for “Gone Girl." (The actress’s own, flashier Cannes-winning turn in David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars” was nominated for a comedy Golden Globe.) But that didn't take anything away from her beautifully subtle and heartbreaking work in “Still Alice,” directed by partners (both personal and professional) Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer. In her quest to depict Alice’s at first hardly noticeable but increasingly rapid decline. »

Here's What It's Like to Cover the Red Carpet at the Oscars

24 February 2015 8:48 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"I can't believe we're here," Felicity Jones said on the red carpet on Sunday afternoon, an hour before the 87th Academy Awards got underway. She echoed our feelings exactly. "Boyhood" and "Whiplash," two of the biggest front-runners of the night had began their journeys to the Oscars way back in January of last year when they premiered to great acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival. To be planted on the red carpet of Hollywood's biggest event over a year later and watch talent from both films slowly make their way into the Dolby Theater felt surreal. That's not to say the journey to the carpet was a smooth one. For Indiewire, the trip to Oscars runway almost ended as soon as it was supposed to begin. Due to being fed misinformation about the check-in time, we showed up a few minutes late to the carpet in the afternoon, only to »

The Theory Of Everything Blu-Ray Review

23 February 2015 12:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Grimy, sweaty, passionate, alive – James Marsh’s exploration of the complex romance between future physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones), the college girlfriend who would become his wife and supporter, flies in the face of expectation. Avoiding tropes of the biopic genre, The Theory of Everything is raw, emotional and at times so intimate in its portrayal of the Hawkings’ most unusual marriage, and of Stephen’s battle against motor neurone disease, that you feel as though you’re intruding.

It will be jarring for viewers to see Hawking, now famed as a wheelchair-bound, robot-voiced intellectual, racing around the Oxford campus on his bike, hair whipped back by the wind and a broad grin stretching across his face. It may also come as a shock to watch his courtship of the pretty, quiet Wilde blossom into all-consuming infatuation – to see them together is to watch two sweet and inelegant souls, »

Gary Whitta Talks 'Star Wars' Spinoff Script and Prequels

23 February 2015 10:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As many already know, Gary Whitta was tasked with writing the first draft of the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off, which is set to hit theaters in 2016. He has since been replaced by The Golden Compass director Chris Weitz. Thus far, no official story details have been revealed by Disney or LucasFilm, but the movie is believed to revolve around space pirates, Han Solo, Boba Fett, spies stealing plans to the Death Star, or all four of those things combined. While Gary Whitta is not allowed to talk about what we'll actually be seeing on screen next year, he did talk with /film about his commitment to the project, calling it the hardest thing he's ever worked on:

"I think any time you're dealing with something that has some personal significance to you, you instinctively approach it with a great degree of appreciation and respect. I grew up with Star Wars, »

Will Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange Have An American Or English Accent?

23 February 2015 9:51 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

So, Benedict Cumberbatch evaded answering that pretty well! It's an interesting question though. Doctor Strange is obviously American in the comic books, but he's the kind of character you can imagine an English accent suiting well. Sadly, it will likely be a long time until we find out either way! In the second video, Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Lupita N’yongo (12 Years A Slave) are a little more forthcoming about their respective Star Wars roles, but not much. The latter has a mystery role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, while Jones has been cast as the female lead in Gareth Edwards' 2016 spinoff. What do you guys think of these comments?

Oscar Losers Receive the Next Best Thing, a Lego Award!

This year at the Oscars, everyone was a winner.

As a consolation prize for those nominees who didn't win an Academy Award on Sunday, they were given Lego Oscar statues which went over surprisingly well. Even American Sniper guys Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood seemed excited to pose with their toy awards alongside fellow nominee Meryl Streep.

Birdman actress Emma Stone and The Theory of Everything star Felicity Jones also kept their Lego statuettes close by, and were more than open to posing with the next-best-thing to a real Oscar.

But it was Oprah Winfrey that seemed most thrilled with her gift. Cameras caught the Selma star's awestruck face when she was handed out the award during the performance of The Lego Movie's song "Everything Is Awesome."

‘Birdman’ Soars at 2015 Oscars

23 February 2015 8:29 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

In the standoff between “Boy…” and “...man,” the “Birdman” came out on top last night at the 87th annual Academy Awards, winning four awards including best picture, best director for Alejandro González Iñárritu, best original screenplay, and best cinematography for Emmanuel Lubezki. “Boyhood” left with only one predictable win for Patricia Arquette, who gave a surprisingly fierce and impassioned acceptance speech. “To every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights,” said Arquette. “It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America.” Julianne Moore locked up the best actress category for her portrayal of a college professor suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s in “Still Alice,” beating out Felicity Jones (“The Theory of Everything”); Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”); Reese Witherspoon (“Wild”); and Marion Cotillard (“Two Days, »

"Kingsman" Star Rumored For Han Solo

23 February 2015 7:52 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

An interesting new rumor suggests that Taron Egerton, the breakout young and buff star of "Kingsman: The Secret Service," might play a young Han Solo in the upcoming Gareth Edwards-directed "Star Wars" spin-off movie which begins shooting in the UK around Easter.

The report comes from British tabloid The Sun (via io9) which says the production will overlap with the last bits of filming on the James Bond film "Spectre" which also is being filmed at Pinewood Studios and wraps late March/early April.

Gary Whitta wrote the first draft of the film's script with Chris Weitz doing a recent polish. However, there's no story details as yet regarding the movie beyond rumors of it involving Han Solo and Boba Fett and potentially being a 'heist thriller' following a group of space pirates.

Egerton isn't the first rumored for the part as "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul was linked »

Stephen Hawking Sweetly Congratulates Eddie Redmayne on His Oscar Win

23 February 2015 7:08 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After winning the Oscar for Best Actor on Sunday, Eddie Redmayne had another reason to smile when renowned physicist Stephen Hawking congratulated him on winning for his portrayal of him in The Theory of Everything.

"Congratulations to Eddie Redmayne for winning an ‪#‎Oscar‬ for playing me in The Theory of Everything movie," the 73-year-old professor wrote on his Facebook page. "Well done Eddie, I'm very proud of you."

News: Where Is Eddie Redmayne Going with That Oscar?!

Prior to the big event, the film's scriptwriter, Anthony McCarten, announced that Hawking -- who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), also known as motor neurone disease -- would not be able to attend the 87th Annual Academy Awards as he was not well enough to fly to Los Angeles.

Upon accepting the coveted award, an overwhelmed Redmayne expressed his gratitude toward Hawking and his whole family. "This belongs to all of those people around the world battling Als. It »

The highly-anticipated 87th Annual Academy Awards were held in Hollywood last night (February 22), with Neil Patrick Harris boldly taking on hosting duties at a star-studded Dolby Theatre.

Winners of the night included Best Actor Eddie Redmayne for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and Best Actress Julianne Moore for her part as Alzheimer sufferer Alice Howland in Still Alice.
