Shut out at the BAFTAs, and nominated for eight Academy Awards and winning Best Adapted Screenplay for screenwriter Graham Moore, Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game and all the awards glory surrounding its release has resulted in the film being representative as a sort of cultural marker. In a year that saw the Academy heavily criticized for its noticeably white nominees across every major category, the inclusion of Tyldum as Best Director and the title amongst the Best Picture nominees came as a bit of a surprise considering the film’s very routine, unavoidably square structure as a well-intentioned, noble biopic. Marketed with urgent desperation as a film exploring the persecution of homosexuality while making a marked statement about the recuperation of the facts concerning the genius of Alan Turing, the accolades bestowed on this otherwise well mounted but incredibly milquetoast production is the political statement that the film simply »

James Corden makes his big debut as host of The Late Late Show tonight on CBS and Et got a special invitation to check out his swanky new set! Before he officially takes over the reigns as the next big late-night star, here are seven reasons you should tune-in!
1. The Brit Factor
Born in the U.K., Corden first became a star on British television in 2000 when he starred in the U.K. series Fat Friends. His brand of humor will play well against the A-listers sitting on his couch and the folks at home watching for theirs. Plus, doesn't everything just sound so much better with an accent?
2. He's got some serious acting chops!
The 35-year-old actor/writer/producer/singer co-starred opposite Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt in Disney's musical adaptation of Into the Woods, and won a Tony for his role as Francis Henshall in One Man, Two Guvnors in 2012. In 2008, he won a BAFTA »
Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.
Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.
As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

When Hadley Freeman first befriended the Fifty Shades of Grey star a decade ago he was an unlikely supermodel who never dropped names, and refused to flirt or sleep around. How did he end up as the go-to actor for serial killers and S&M freaks?
The only thing worse than a model/actress, the old snarky joke goes, is a model/actor. And I might once have snarked along with that joke, until I met Jamie Dornan. Jamie and I became friends exactly a decade ago, when he was 22 and I was 26 and a mutual friend introduced us at a party. Neither of us, to be honest, was in the best of shape at the time. He was heartbroken after the recent end of his long-term relationship with Keira Knightley (it took about a month before I even saw him smile) and I, meanwhile, was deep in my belief »

The song is a tribute to Southall (postcode UB2) and features the cast setting the scene for the show.The accompanying video was shot on the streets of Southall before rehearsals began. The cast spent a day singing, dancing and stopping traffic, and took over one of the most iconic streets in west London.
Chadha said of the filming and the track: “UB2 is where Jess lives, and where I lived. We wanted to get people to start to feel the essence and heart of the music, and the best way was to bring it to life here in the heart of the community.”
London previews begin for the new British musical Bend It Like Beckham on 15 May 2015 with opening night on 24 June 2015.

The Imitation Game and the accompanying special features will be available for digital download beginning this Friday, March 20, eleven days before the release of the DVD and Blu-ray on March 31. As part of the awareness campaign, the Weinstein Company has sent over this exclusive look behind the scenes of the film featuring Oscar-winning screenwriter Graham Moore and Oscar-nominees Keira Knightley and producer Nora Grossman discussing Knightley's Oscar nominated role as Joan Clarke, and the role she played in Alan Turing's life and the events that transpired at Bletchley Park. amz asin="B00R7FZ074" size="small"To quote my review: To call what takes place between Joan and Alan a love story is a bit disingenuous, but it is their relationship that adds another layer to the story, a layer that still relies on cliched storytelling tropes, but doesn't feel cliche simply due to the kind of story being told. »

Not that we ever doubted how amazingly awesome Keira Knightley is to work with, but it's still nice to hear her co-stars gushing over the Oscar nominee. "She's so down to earth and level headed and works astonishingly hard and keeps it light and easy breezy on the set," Matthew Goode says in an interview included on the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray editions of the The Imitation Game. "[She] has a really good sense of humor. It's like having a sister on set, which is fantastic." And Knightley had no problem being the lone female star of the movie. "She knew exactly how to control the group of lads…and get over that lads mentality," Allen Leech said. Fellow Imitation Game »
The title is the most authentically French thing about “Suite francaise,” a fusty but enjoyably old-fashioned WWII soap that, notwithstanding its Gallic locale, is otherwise characterized by a distinctly British brand of plumminess. Based on the bestselling unfinished novel by Irene Nemirovsky, this lightly perfumed tale of the tentative romance between a married Frenchwoman and an urbane Nazi soldier during the 1940 German occupation covers no new ground historically or stylistically, and is hampered by gauche narration that undermines the expressive delicacy of Michelle Williams’s headlining performance. Still, attractive mounting and casting — with the inspired choice of Matthias Schoenaerts as Williams’s co-lead paying off handsomely — could see this Weinstein Co. property make moderately “Suite” music in limited release.
In Blighty, where Entertainment One releases the pic on March 13, “Suite francaise” is likely to entice the older audience that failed to turn out for the comparable but superior wartime weepie »

Some movies spend an eternity in development hell before finally becoming a reality. Others become warnings to filmmakers or bedtime stories that keep Hollywood executives awake. The live action remake of Akira is one of those films. For years, everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio, Stephen Norrington, Allen and Albert Hughes, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zac Efron, Morgan Freeman, James Franco, Keanu Reeves, Keira Knightley, and Gary Oldman were involved and nothing happened. Most recently, Orphan and »

Ishiguro’s novels have found success in Hollywood before. In 1993, The Remains of the Day garnered eight Oscar nominations and showcased the skills of actors Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins. In 2010, Andrew Garfield, Keira Knightley, and Carey Mulligan starred in the adapted sci-fi high-concept drama Never Let Me Go.
Both films based on Ishiguro’s work were well-received, so it comes as faint surprise that his latest book, one where a family must find their son in a fictionalized war-torn post-medieval England, was snapped up by Rudin. The director will purportedly start putting together his team and begin work while the Jobs biopic languishes. Little is known about the direction of the movie, except by those who’ve already read the novel, »

Director: Morten Tyldum
Running Time: 114 minutes
Extras: Making The Imitation Game, Alan Turing: Man & Enigma, Heroes of Bletchley
The Imitation Game is an outstanding introduction and exploration of the remarkable life of genius Alan Turing, his unique work, alongside a dedicated team at Bletchley Park, had a historic effect on the outcome of the Second World War. The story had been hidden for 29 years before it was revealed in 1974 and although many of us have known about the story specific story of Enigma, I feel that Turing’s remarkable and vital involvement hadn’t really been told to a wider audience until now.
Cumberbatch is a striking fit for the character that is both in the truest sense a genius and at a loss for his connection to ‘normal’ life, whatever that is, his »

Spanish actress Anna Allen takes the phrase "fake it till you make it" to a new level.
Numerous news outlets are claiming the 32-year-old performer has been photoshopping her face on celebrities' bodies and reposting their pics on her Instagram as if they were her own. As of late, the Anna Allen Instagram account is not in service.
The actress' alleged web of lies was discovered when she started sharing pics from the Oscars.
Photos: Before and After -- Stars' Most Dramatic Transformations
According to formulaTV, Anna cropped Lupita Nyong'o's 2014 invitation to the Academy Awards and posted as her own on Instagram -- though failed to crop out the year. "So it's official," the caption reads, purportedly from Anna's account. "I'm invited to the Oscars!"
But her alter ego doesn't stop there. The actress also photoshopped her head on several celebrities, including Keira Knightley. She also, according to reports, photoshopped herself »
High school students can get free tickets to “The Imitation Game” thanks to a partnership between the Oscar-winning film’s distributor, the Weinstein Company, and AMC Theatres.
The promotion is nationwide across 180 theaters. It lasts for one day only — Friday, March 6. The film has an educational component in that it centers on mathematician Alan Turing, the head of the research team that cracked the Nazis’ Enigma code during World War II. Despite his contribution to the Allied war effort, Turing was chemically castrated for homosexual activity. Research Turing did on the so-called Turing machine, a theoretical simulation of a computer algorithm, is considered to be an early precursor to modern computers.
Because of the film’s subject matter, AMC is reaching out to high school computer classes, math and science teams and Lgbt clubs. The free high school screenings of the film will include a special taped introductory message from writer Graham Moore, »

So was Alexandria the dream world Aaron promised? In some ways, it might actually be. Sure, things are a little odd, but what isn't odd in the zombie apocalypse? First of all, remember when we hoped for showers? There were showers! Rick washed his disgusting feet and even shaved his beard. We don't know why we needed to watch him do it for three minutes, but we did anyway, and then we watched him get a haircut until we could once again picture him holding a sign outside Keira Knightley's house that reads "To me, you are perfect." There was running water, there were kids, there were video games, there were giant houses for everyone to live in. Some of the Alexandrians »
