More "Trainspotting" In The Works

14 September 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle, a sequel to "Trainspotting" is on track for development, with a new screenplay by Oscar-nominated writer John Hodge

Boyle intends to reunite the first film's original cast of Ewan McGregor, Ewan Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kevin McKidd and Kelly Macdonald.

"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "There’s always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2', if John can produce a decent enough script. I don’t think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. 

"I think they’ll want to know that the parts are good so they don’t feel like they are letting anyone down. The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to »

Boardwalk Empire: Season Five Ratings

11 September 2014 1:05 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

HBO has decided that the fifth season will be the end of Boardwalk Empire. Will this be the show's most popular season yet? Will the cable channel regret ending the show or is the time right?

In the final season of Boardwalk Empire, the end of Prohibition is near and Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) looks to legitimize himself through alliances with liquor producers. Rivals Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza) and Meyer Lansky seek to consolidate their power and eliminate all competition -- by any means necessary. The rest of the cast includes Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Stephen Graham, Michael Kenneth Williams, Gretchen Mol, Paul Sparks, Jeffrey Wright, Anatol Yusef, Patricia Arquette, and Ben Rosenfield.

This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

For reference: The fourth season of Boardwalk Empire averaged a »

Kelly Macdonald interview: Glasgow girl made good

7 September 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Kelly Macdonald would like to get something off her chest. The Scottish actress cannot bear reality television. “The people on programmes like Made in Chelsea just want to be celebrities. It’s so depressing,” she says. “No proper actor has that as a goal. I’m striving for longevity in my career. I won’t be on I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!. They’d say, ‘Get out of here – you’re not a celebrity!’” »

Which 'Boardwalk Empire' characters will survive the final season?

5 September 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When the new, final season of Boardwalk Empire starts Sunday, the Roaring Twenties will be over. The Depression will will have set in, and the end of Prohibition will be just a couple of years away. That, however, doesn’t mean that the aftermath of the series’ fourth season won’t linger, even as the show settles into 1931.

In its past four seasons, Boardwalk Empire has proved that it is interested in the entirety of the sprawling gangster culture of the 1920s, not just Nucky Thompson’s bootlegging business. By moving the action to 1931, the show will most certainly contend with the changing crime landscape. »

So, Just How Gangster Is the Cast of Boardwalk Empire?

5 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It doesn’t get more (old-timey) gangster than Boardwalk Empire’s bootlegging, gun-slinging, punch-throwing brawls. So, at Wednesday night’s season premiere and after-party at Cipriani 42nd Street, we asked the cast and other partygoers about the most gangster things they’ve ever done in real life. Michael K. Williams (Chalky White) The most gangster thing I’ve ever done was walk up to Eve the rapper and ask her out. I said, "What’s up? Will you go out with me?" She said no. But I thought that was pretty gangster. Anyway, she’s married now, so that ship has sailed. Kelly Macdonald (Margaret Thompson)Having babies. That’s pretty gangster. You can’t get tougher than that. Vincent Piazza (Lucky Luciano)Ooooh. I don’t know, probably playing Lucky Luciano — that’s the most gangster thing I’ve ever done. Pulling fake guns on people and threatening them »

'Boardwalk Empire': Steve Buscemi, Terence Winter Share How They Ended the Final Season

4 September 2014 12:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On Boardwalk Empire's final day of production, Steve Buscemi broke one of his own cardinal rules. Shooting at their Steiner Studios stage in Brooklyn, the actor stood with his back turned to his onscreen counterpart, Kelly Macdonald, waiting patiently for Margaret Thompson to say the line that cues the nebulous Nucky to turn to her, and the camera, for the very last time. "Usually, I get very distracted by people in my eye-line," he told The Hollywood Reporter at the show's season-five premiere on Wednesday. "But for the very last take, I requested the whole crew to

5 Peter Capaldi films you need to see ahead of his Doctor Who debut

21 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Digital Spy presents Doctor Who Week - seven days of special features celebrating the return of the world's favourite sci-fi series, and the arrival of a brand new Doctor on August 23.

When Peter Capaldi steps out of the Tardis this weekend for his Doctor Who debut, it'll be the first time many will see the wiry Scottish actor in action. Playing The Doctor will raise Capaldi's profile into the stratosphere, but he's been a supporting staple on the small and big screen since the early '80s.

Digital Spy casts its eyes over five film highlights from the 12th Doctor.

Local Hero (1983)

Capaldi's second acting job was in Bill Forsyth's brilliantly moving Local Hero, a comedy-drama about an American oil company worker who's dispatched to Scotland with a view to buying up land surrounding a small community. His first point of contact is Capaldi's Danny Oldsen, a fresh-faced bumbler who, »

Some Thoughts on 'The Knick', Premieres Tonight

8 August 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first episode of Steven Soderbergh's "The Knick" premieres tonight, August 8, at 10 p.m. Et/Pt and just a couple nights ago I watched the first two episodes of the show, which stars Clive Owen as Dr. John W. Thackery, working at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital in the year 1900. It's early days in anesthetics and the premiere episode's opening scene is a brutal one, offering an introduction into the blood bath the show will surely be. Having only watched the first two episodes (they sent me the first seven) I can't say I'm wholly in the bag for the show just yet as it is yet another television series that seems determined to focus solely on the bleak nature of the situation at hand and absolutely nothing that would seem to offer any sense of relief from the despair. Dead babies, cocaine use, racial issues, deviant ambulance drivers, electrical issues, »

Watch: Jesus Was Wrong In New Teaser Trailer For Final Season Of 'Boardwalk Empire'

21 July 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Boardwalk Empire" will be taking its final journey along the coast of New Jersey this fall, and it's going to bring some big changes with it. The last season of the period drama will apparently jump the timeline forward to the early '30s, just as prohibition is about to end. They're also going to have a lot less time to wrap up their final season. Instead of the regular twelve episodes, HBO is only giving them a shortened eight ep season. But it looks as if it'll be an intense one. HBO has dropped a brand new teaser for the final season, and from Chalky White intoning that "Jesus was wrong" about forgiveness to the closing tagline announcing "No One Goes Quietly," big things are on horizon. The faces you'll want to see are here with Steve Buscemi, Michael K. Williams, Michael Shannon, Kelly Macdonald and more all glimpsed, »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Alien – Ridley Scott’s Masterpiece Released 35 Years Ago Today: May 25, 1979

25 May 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Avco Center Cinemas, Westwood, CA

On Friday, director Ridley Scott arrived in Sydney, Australia, reportedly to scout for locations for Prometheus 2.

Prometheus (2012) starred Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba, was well received by critics and subsequently a box office hit. The sequel is scheduled for a release in March 2016.

I’ll bet Scott never thought in a million years that he’d be scouting locations for another Alien movie almost 35 years to the day after the original hit theaters.

Jump back to opening weekend… May 25, 1979. “In space no one can hear you scream”

I was a 12 year girl when my mother, after much pleading, took me to the Showcase Cinemas in East Hartford, Ct on that Friday night. These were the days prior to the words “spoilers” and “internet” when audiences went into a film blind and when parents didn’t take their children to R rated movies. »
