Today, I bring you another Oscar roundtable courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter. This time it is the female actors. The panel includes Amy Adams (Big Eyes), Reese Witherspoon (Wild), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Patricia Arquette (Boyhood), Hilary Swank (The Homesman), and Laura Dern (Wild). The Oscar hopefuls discuss a wide variety of topics including their respective performances this year, the celebrity photo hacking scandal (which affected people like Jennifer Lawrence), the sequel culture of Hollywood, and the response to Renee Zellwegger's new face. One particular section I found interesting came from Witherspoon concerning Gone Girl Note: I wish Rosamund Pike was on this panel, who is a producer on the film. When asked why she was not in the film, she responded: I was always open to doing it, but whenever David Fincher says he wants to do a project, you just sit back and say, »

5th Update, Monday 6:05 Pm Pt: Actuals have poured in from the studios with the weekend’s big bird Mockingjay — Part I whistling a fine $154.3 million. Worldwide, the third installment of Ya rebel Katniss Everdeen stands at $276.2M. The other major global player, Interstellar, came up slightly higher after Sunday was officially tallied with $71.1M vs a projected $70M. There were no major fluctuations on the rest of the films in the marketplace apart from the usual adjustments. Next week, we’ll see Penguins Of Madagascar expand beyond the Middle Kingdom as well as the Horrible Bosses 2 crew conspiring in several major markets. Also of note, Paddington will steam into the UK on the heels of strong reviews and a little bit of controversy to add heft to this fuzzy bear of a family film (see below the original posts for more).

What exactly is the state of the Oscar race at this pointc We are only a few days away from the Thanksgiving break and screeners are finally starting to arrive in faster fashion. Just today I received a copy of Inherent Vice, American Sniper and Get On Up and will be seeing A Most Violent Year tomorrow, which leaves only a few films yet to be seen. Of those few, obviously Angelina Jolie's Unbroken is the biggest as it has only had a few showings so far, with the first major press screenings to take place on November 30 (though I'm not scheduled to see it here in Seattle until December 17, after the Bfca nomination deadline). Interestingly enough, I feel there is already backlash building for Unbroken. Universal has pretty much put all their eggs in this one basket, offering a massive preview back in March at CinemaCon, nine months »

While the Oscar race for Best Actor has heated up to a frenzy with, as previously reported here, at least 30 viable candidates and only five slots, most observers have labeled this year’s Best Actress crop from weak to thin with not even enough sure things at this point to make a list of five.
That’s a bit of an overstatement as pundits generally agree there are at least three, possibly four near-certainties for nominations: Julianne Moore for the still-unreleased Still Alice (out Dec. 5), Felicity Jones for The Theory Of Everything and Reese Witherspoon for Wild (also out Dec. 5).
When Gone Girl opened earlier this fall, it not only became by far the biggest awards contenders with a female lead released this year, it stirred up talk of an inevitable nod for Rosamund Pike. In terms of the campaign though, she has been a bit out of sight/out »

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" isn't quite keeping the first two films in the series at the box office, but is nonetheless on its way to a massive opening weekend. Powered by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, "Mockingjay" soared to $55 million on Friday, making it the biggest Friday opening of the year. "Transformers: Age of Extinction" earned $41.9 million on its first Friday. "Mockingjay" will likely earn around $130 million for the weekend, again topping "Age of Extinction's" $100 million weekend debut. However, "Mockingjay" is doing much slower business that last year's "Catching Fire," which opened to a staggering $158.1 million last year, as well as the first "Hunger Games," which bowed to $152 million in 2012. The first film went on to gross a huge $408 million domestically, while "Catching Fire" topped it with $424 million. The threequel -- the first part of the two-part finale -- will have to make up some ground next week »

West Hollywood — On Wednesday it was Reese. On Thursday it was Shailene. On Friday it was Jennifer… …Aniston. Yes, this year's Best Actress contenders continued to celebrate their films with awards season events and Thursday night featured a special screening of Daniel Barnz's "Cake," where a post-show party at the Sunset Tower Hotel found Aniston, obviously, the center of attention. "Cake" stars Aniston as Claire, a woman whose life has come to something of a stand still because of chronic pain she's suffered from a major car accident. It's an impressive performance by the popular actress that I praised in my review of the film from the Toronto Film Festival a few months ago, and hinted she could be an awards season player. Speaking to Aniston Friday night, she admitted that after some roles, directors and producers "box" you into a certain mold for a certain kind of a movie. »

Palm Springs: The place to be during Oscar season. The California town’s annual film festival is a hotbed of potential nominees, actors and actresses wrangled for speciality honors that amplify existing buzz. Currently receiving accolades from Palm Springs International Film Festival: Eddie Redmayne ("The Theory of Everything"), Julianne Moore ("Still Alice"), and J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash"). Time for another name: Rosamund Pike. She costarred in "Die Another Day," "Pride & Prejudice," The Rock's "Doom," "An Education," "Jack Reacher," and "The World's End," but it took "Gone Girl" to finally come into her own. At least according to the Psiff, who will honor the Breakthrough Performance Award, Actress at its annual Awards Gala.

I’m going to keep it short and sweet today folks, or at least a bit shorter than usual in terms of set up. You all know by now that it’s time for my middle of the month Oscar predictions update piece. Sometimes, there’s only a tinker or two to be done, but today…today I have a seismic shift to include, namely in the arrival of Selma on the scene. It’s gone from being shut out (what was I thinking?) to contending for wins in multiple major categories. In fact, more than one of the big eight categories have new winners listed, so this is a definite change in thinking. Some of it might be short lived, but that’s what the upcoming new set of predictions next month is for, right? I’ve also added the three short form categories (Animated Short, Documentary Short, and »

Movie-goers paying attention to the credits for Gone Girl may have found themselves wondering why Reese Witherspoon didn't wind up starring alongside Ben Affleck in the acclaimed drama. The actress served as a producer on the film, and since she is roughly around the same age as Rosamund Pike, some might find it curious why she didn't end up taking the role of Amy Dunne for herself. Now that query has been answered, as Witherspoon has revealed that it all came down to what sounds like a frank conversation she had with director David Fincher. Reese Witherspoon was recently a participant in a Hollywood Reporter-organized roundtable that saw her seated alongside the likes of Julianne Moore, Laura Dern, Hilary Swank, Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette, and during the conversation the Academy Award-winning actress explained why she didn't end up with the titular role in Gone Girl. She noted that »

Rosamund Pike delivered easily one of the best performances of the year as Amy Dunne in Gone Girl. I hope she gets rightfully recognized for her work in the coming months, because it will be well deserved.

Pike is in talks to join Pacific Rim blank face Charlie Hunnam in the film adaptation of Charles Martin's The Mountain Between Us.

Following up on her eye-catching, blood-curdling stint as Amazing Amy in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike has been eyed for a lead role in Hany Abu-Assad’s adaptation, The Mountains Between Us.
News comes by way of Deadline, who report that the actress is in talks to star alongside Pacific Rim‘s Charlie Hunnam for the survival tale, which is based on the eponymous novel by Charles Martin. First published in 2010, the book orbits around an unlikely pair who find themselves united by a cancelled flight. Ashley (Pike) is a novelist herself, waiting on an eastbound flight to make it home in time for her wedding, whereas Ben (Hunnam) is a doctor returning home from a medical conference.
In transit, a horrific accident occurs that forces the plane to crash land on a remote snowy mountain region (hence the title) making way for a tale about love, loss and ultimately, »

With Gone Girl making a big splash at the box office and having some staying power over the past month and a half, it's time for Rosamund Pike to lock down her next project. Variety reports the star of Jack Reacher and The World's End is now in early talks to star in The Mountain Between Us, an adaptation of Charles Martin's book of the same name name set up at Fox 2000 & Chernin Entertainment. Previously Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) was going to star in the film with Pacific Rim's Charlie Hunnam, but she probably fell away since she's likely playing Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad at Warner Bros. next. Ashley (Pike) is a writer catching a flight from Salt Lake City and heading East for her wedding. Ben (Hunnam) is a doctor returning from a medical conference. When their flight is cancelled, the strangers agree to charter a ride. »
