We’re still waiting on a release date (beyond “summer” anyway), but thanks to Comic Book we’ve got a look at the upcoming Blu-ray steelbook cover for X-Men: Days of Future Past – The Rogue Cut, which you can see here…
The extended version of last year’s mutant superhero sequel is set to add an extra 17 minutes to the film, which as you can probably guess from the title, are focussed on the character of Rogue (Anna Paquin), who was all but cut from the theatrical version.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by Bryan Singer and sees X-Men veterans Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Lucas Till (Havok), Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) joined in the cast by »

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Unstoppable, ass-kicking heroines are still a minority in film and television, but we like to think that things are getting better. Women have been tearing it up in more and more in recent years in high profile Ya adaptations, superhero movies and gripping dramas from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Tatiana Maslany.
Here are some of the most awesome female leads from television and film, all waiting to be watched on Netflix right now:
Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire)
Young adult adaptations have been all the rage in recent years, with a gratifying number of talented young women taking the lead roles. Out of all of these, Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss has got to be our favourite.
Panem is a terrible place to live, and, on top of that, Katniss is handed some extra helpings of personal tragedy. And while not entirely comfortable or willing »
Though Ellen Page had made a name for herself prior to the 2007 hit “Juno,” it was with Jason Reitman’s indie dramedy that her career arguably took off. In one of the first films of its kind, Page plays Juno MacGuff, an offbeat teen faced with an unplanned pregnancy. And while Reitman may not have know exactly what he was looking for in his titular character, the young actor made it abundantly clear in her audition. Page’s naturalness is stunning paired with her scene partner and eventual cast mate Olivia Thirlby. No wonder she was nominated for an Oscar. Check out the audition below. Want to see more?

After stunning audiences and critics alike with his gripping, grotesque performance in Foxcatcher, Steve Carell is taking on another dramatic project that will move the Office actor further from his comic roots. Carell will star in Robert Zemeckis’ Marwencol, a feature adaptation of the 2010 Jeff Malmberg documentary.
When Zemeckis was first mentioned in association with the project back in 2013, he and Universal were said to be eyeing Leonardo DiCaprio for the lead role, and though that evidently didn’t pan out, Carell has been making dramatic waves of his own in recent years.
The actor will star as Mark Hogancamp, who is assaulted and left with severe amnesia, unable to remember his life prior to the attack. Searching for meaning, he begins to construct an elaborate, miniature model of a World War II-era Belgian village called Marwencol. Becoming invested in the stories of the little dolls he places in Marwencol, »

Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: I’m a huge supporter of Playstation Now.
Netflix, Spotify, Marvel Unlimited – show me a subscription service for content I want and I’ll show you my wallet. When it comes to film, TV, music and comics, roughly 90% of what I consume nowadays is streamed or downloaded. Physical media? Pah!
Games, obviously, are the sticking point. Sure, there’s digital downloads available on every platform (even Nintendo), yet it’s the one area I normally always go for the disc release. Why is that? Well, price plays a large part of it for starters. When I’m dropping £30-40 on a title, I want to really get my money’s worth. Whether this means trading it in against a future purchase or just sharing a game amongst friends, there’s not enough of an incentive right now to go fully digital for me. »

The crowning achievement of the MTV Movie Awards is Best Kiss. It's a necessary, telling category. Frankly, a kissing scene is often the most interesting part of a movie. (See: "Talladega Nights," "The Notebook," and "Cruel Intentions," which all won in this category.) How do this year's nominees hold up? We rank them from fifth to first. 5. Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Get More: 2015 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News So it's a cute moment. There's quippy dialogue. Evans is in his chill Eddie Bauer gear and Johansson is commanding and stony. But the idea of kissing in public as a masquerade is the stuff of ancient teen movies and, more recently, "Inception." We already had this nomination in 2011 with Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and that was both funnier and more intense. 4.

Holofcener is also writing the pic which based on the 2008 memoir by Lee Israel.
Israel was a respected biographer who fell on hard times and turned to counterfeiting the letters of deceased writers and celebrities in order to pay her rent. When the forgeries started to raise suspicion, she turned to stealing the actual letters from library archives and sold them through an ex-con fence she met in a bar, while the FBI was closing in on the scam.
Anne Carey will produce the pic.
The film will be Moore’s first since her best actress Oscar win for “Still Alice.” This year, she will appear in “Hunger Games: »

Yesterday, we reported that the British Board of Film Classification listed the runtime for the "Rogue Cut" of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past at exactly 11 minute and 11 seconds longer than the theatrical runtime. While we still don't know when this special edition Blu-ray and DVD will be released, director Bryan Singer clarified the report on his Twitter page, revealing that there will actually be more than 17 minutes of new footage, plus "little changes" he made to the theatrical cut. Of course, he wouldn't elaborate on what these "little changes" may be, but hopefully we'll find out soon enough.
We first reported about the Rogue Cut back in September, with the new footage featuring a subplot involving Anna Paquin's Rogue. While she did appear briefly in the movie, she actually had a much bigger role, with these scenes featuring a group of mutants breaking her out of a prison. »
Back in September, we reported that 20th Century Fox is planning a "Rogue Cut" Blu-ray and DVD release for last summer's blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past. Producer Simon Kinberg revealed that this new cut will include more than 10 minutes of extra footage that wasn't included in the theatrical version of X-Men: Days of Future Past. While we still don't know exactly when the "Rogue Cut" will be released, Empire is reporting that it will include exactly 11 minutes and 11 seconds of new footage.
Our report from September revealed that the new footage will involve a subplot that was cut out featuring Anna Paquin's Rogue, which Simon Kinberg called a "substantial part of the movie." The scenes in question involve several different mutants breaking Rogue out of prison. We also reported in January that the "Rogue Cut" will feature all new extras that weren't included in last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past »
This summer fans of Anna Paquin are in for a treat with the release of the Rogue Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which restores the True Blood star’s action sequence which was cut from last year’s mutant superhero blockbuster, and now it has been revealed that the extended version will include 11 minutes and 11 seconds of additional footage.
The scene in question reportedly sees Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) launching a rescue attempt, breaking Paquin’s Rogue out of a mutant prison camp controlled by the Sentinels. It will extend the film’s run time from 131 minutes and 26 seconds to 142 minutes 27 seconds.
Update: Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to state that the Rogue Cut is actually more than 17 minutes longer than the original cut, “and has a few little changes I made”. I guess we’ll find out for sure when it finally gets an official release date. »

Ok, so we all know that movie logic increases the median attractiveness of everybody on screen by at least 50%, and we accept it. But what happens when an actor is just too attractive for suspension of disbelief to work in a particular role?
Mae Whitman being cast as the eponymous "designated ugly fat friend" in this weekend's The Duff is a fine example. Thankfully the film (which is kind of great, by the way) does take pains to emphasise that even perfectly attractive people can be the Duff in their friendship group, because Duff is a state of mind. Or something.
Digital Spy takes a look back at seven more actors who were too attractive for the part, most of whom still got cast anyway.
Last year, mere months after Four Weddings celebrated its 20th birthday, Hugh Grant dropped the bombshell that nobody »

Juno is all grown up. It's been a little more than a year since Ellen Page came out to the world as gay. In that time, the star has undoubtedly found more confidence—and has also hit her style stride. In the April issue of Vogue, the actress—who plays Julianne Moore's life partner in the upcoming film Freeheld—shared her personal and style evolution. "I used to feel this constant pressure to be more feminine; a quiet or sometimes not-so-quiet demand—'You need to wear a dress or people will think you're gay.'" she explains. "Now I feel a sense of freedom in dressing, and I'm enjoying it so much. I love wearing a Saint Laurent suit to an event," »
Awards season may be over but Julianne Moore has some choice words for the “humiliating” process.
In a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the actress – who was a fixture of awards season this year thanks to her Oscar winning role in Still Alice -- says she will twirl for the cameras but she won’t do the mani-cam, which she made more than obvious at this year’s Golden Globes.
Just Say No to the Mani-Cam (Like Julianne Moore Did!)
“I’m 54 years old,” she explains. “I can’t make my fingers walk; it’s humiliating! And a guy asked me to lift up my skirt to show them my shoes, and I said, ‘I don’t need to do that. Let’s keep some dignity.’ ”
Part of the dignity also means fitting in that dress, which is often scrutinized to the very thread by the press.

Production wrapped on Peter Sollett’s forthcoming human rights drama Freeheld late last year, and today, the first clutch of images from the movie have debuted online. Taken from the film’s official Facebook page, the stills showcase Oscar-winner Julianne Moore and her co-star Ellen Page as a couple who rallied against the archaic benefits system in 2005.
Based on the 2007 documentary of the same name, Freeheld follows the story of Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree. The couple fought to change the Domestic Partners Rights Act as its vague parameters – it “grants pension benefits to domestic partners of all New Jersey public employees” – failed to provide those benefits to partners from a same sex relationship. The original documentary stirred up good critical notices upon release and went on to receive the Special Jury Award at Sundance, with its director Cynthia Wade also snagging the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short. »

'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper.

The Berlinale always has been a seller's market, and as competition for product grows fiercer, U.S. presales are rising. "There are only a few English-language films in the official program each year, and many domestic buyers are in town with little else to distract them," says Micah Green, co-head of CAA's film-finance group.
Early in the festival, U.S. buyers recovering from Sundance quickly ignored their jet lag upon viewing a 12-minute sizzle reel of Freeheld (co-repped by CAA and WME). The gay-rights drama, starring Julianne Moore as the late Laurel Hester and Ellen Page (also a producer on the film), ignited an overnight bidding war. Lionsgate emerged the victor over Focus Features, Sony Pictures Classics and Netflix, among others, paying $7 million for North American rights to the Endgame production.
