Ciara McAvoy: The Hollywood Interview

Sweet Painting Lady: Ciara McAvoy Resurrects the Art of the Movie Poster

By Alex Simon

“Art is not just a part of my life. It Is my life. It gives me breath. We are eternally entwined.” This is the mantra of Scottish artist Ciara McAvoy, a painter renowned for her stunning oil work, which the Glasgow-born artist has used to create some of the most iconic movie posters in modern times. Inspired by her French grandfather, a pre-ww II portraitist who gained fame at Montmartre, McAvoy’s interest in drawing and painting film-related subjects began after her first viewing of Star Wars as a child.

“I started drawing at eight and painted and sold my first oil, entitled Cops, when I was only twelve years old, so I guess I can say that I was born to be an artist," McAvoy recalled in a 2014 interview with David Bateman of Stv Glasgow. »

There's Now Video of Neville Longbottom's Sexy, Half-Naked Photo Shoot

18 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Matthew Lewis, best known for playing the role of Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, has become equally well-known for his epic transformation from chubby misfit to scorching-hot cover boy. Matthew appears in the June 2015 issue of the British magazine Attitude wearing little more than underwear and an open cardigan, and a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot was released on Tuesday. Last week, the sexy snaps got the attention of many - including the author of the Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling. After seeing the racy photos, the writer tweeted to Matthew, saying, "Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God's sake," referring to Daniel Radcliffe going nude when he starred in the play in 2007. What followed was a hilariously sweet social media exchange that is bound to make you blush. Read the tweets below, and keep scrolling for Matthew's hot Attitude video and pictures. »

Now You See Me 3 is a go

25 May 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While the sequel to the 2013's Now You See Me won't be hitting big screens until Summer 2016, a third movie is already on the cards. The sequel, called Now You See Me 2: The Second Act, will see Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco team up again (Isla Fisher won't be back) as The Four Horsemen, who are master illusionists and thieves all rolled into one. Jay Chou, Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Radcliffe are also on board for the sequel and presumably much of the cast will return for a third outing. Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer was talking up the company's earning profile with a bunch of analysts and announced the third outing. We have to be honest, we didn't see that one coming, but the original was throughly enjoyable and as long as they don't tinker with the successful formula too much, then bring it on! »

Now You See Me 3 already in the works

24 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now You See Me 2 isn't due until next year - but plans are afoot for Now You See Me 3...

Lionsgate has high hopes for its 2016 sequel, Now You See Me 2, which it hopes will build on the $350m gross for 2013's surprise hit. The sequel has added Daniel Radcliffe to its cast (which also includes returnees Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), although Isla Fisher's pregnancy means she's missing from episode two.

But there's a sporting chance her Now You See Me days are not over. Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer has revealed that the firm is already in the early planning stages for Now You See Me 3, and Fisher may well thus return in that way.

The second film, Now You See Me: The Second Act, is currently due for release in June 2016, with Jon M Chu taking over directing duties from Louis Leterrier. »

Now You See Me 3 In The Works

24 May 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The surprise success of the first stage-magicians-pulling-a-heist thriller Now You See Me naturally led to the greenlight for a second film, which is a year away from release. But Lionsgate is apparently already so confident in the sequel that it has announced that a third film is in development. Speaking in the context of a less-than-sexy call with analysts to talk up the company’s earning profile, Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer announced that he and his team were already planning a third outing, which will surely end up being called Now You See Three, unless they don’t like laughter or fun.The original, which saw Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco as performers The Four Horsemen recruited for a series of daring robberies with an ulterior motive, took in less than $30 million on its opening weekend, but eventually made more than $351 million worldwide.

Now You See Me 3 Heads into Development; Lionsgate Sees Magical Franchise

22 May 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even though the film was painfully disappointing considering its outstanding cast, Now You See Me was a bit hit for Lionsgate, and the studio has moved forward on Now You See Me 2. Even though the sequel, officially titled Now You See Me: The Second Act, won’t arrive until next summer, the studios is now developing Now You See Me 3. Variety reports that Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts, “We’ve already begun early planning for ‘Now You See Me 3,” during a conference call to discuss quarterly earnings. Production recently wrapped on Now You See Me: The Second Act, which stars Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, and Daniel Radcliffe, and it will be interesting to see how the cast for the sequel lines up. The sequel lost Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, and Melanie Laurent, but gained Caplan and Radcliffe. If Lionsgate wants to make this a legit franchise, »

The Show Must Go On As Lionsgate Greenlights Third Installment Of Now You See Me

22 May 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From humble sleeper hit to bona fide series, the story behind Lionsgate’s Now You See Me franchise has been one riddled with success, and even though The Second Act isn’t set to slink into theaters until 2016, the studio has went one step further to greenlight a third installment in the crime caper franchise.

Speaking at an earnings call earlier today, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer confirmed that the studio has entered the “early planning” stage in relation to the threequel, and a Now You See Me 3 dovetails with the company’s plan to double down on bankable franchises. Back in 2013, the original movie pulled in an impressive $350 million at the worldwide box office off the back of a $75 million budget, and Lionsgate will be hoping to increase this profit margin moving forward.

In fact, it’s a trend seen across the studio’s roster of IP, what with the »

J.K. Rowling has urged actor Matthew Lewis to “put some clothes on”

22 May 2015 1:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

J.K. Rowling has urged actor Matthew Lewis to “put some clothes on”.

The ‘Harry Potter’ author was left shocked after she spotted the 25-year-old star – who played Neville Longbottom in the popular series of films – wearing minimal clothes in the latest issue of Attitude magazine, insisting he covers up in future.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “I will always support you whatever you want to do, Matthew. Now go put some clothes on.”

The 49-year-old writer – who is currently working on the script for ‘Harry Potter’ spin-off film ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ – admitted the risqué shoot wasn’t as bad as when the franchise’s lead actor Daniel Radcliffe bared his genitals in an on-stage version of the play ‘Equus’ on London’s West End.

She added: “Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God’s sake.”

Neville Longbottom Got Ripped (and Made J.K. Rowling Uncomfortable)

21 May 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Matthew Lewis, the actor behind beloved "Harry Potter" character Neville Longbottom, has made headlines before for how much he's changed since his debut as an awkward preteen in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Now, the British babe is once again making waves with his appearance -- and making author J.K. Rowling uncomfortable in the process.

Lewis is the latest cover star for Attitude magazine, and the actor went all-out for the occasion, showing off an impressive set of abs (and making good on the headline, "From Hogwarts to Hottie"). Things got steamier inside the mag, with a photo of Lewis showing off...well, you can imagine (or check out the pic for yourself here).But while many fans swooned over the images, there was one person whose reaction wasn't entirely positive. In a post on Twitter, Rowling compared her response to Lewis's racy photoshoot to her shock in seeing »

21 May 2015 6:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Rockstar is taking legal action against the BBC over its upcoming Grand Theft Auto drama.

Game Changer, which revolves around the court battles between Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar and Miami lawyer Jack Thompson, is in danger of being derailed due to a trademark lawsuit of its own filed against the BBC by Rockstar.

Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two told IGN that the company has tried to resolve the issue with the BBC to no avail.

"While holders of the trademarks are referenced in the film title and its promotion, Rockstar Games has had no involvement with this project," it said.

"Our goal is to ensure that our trademarks are not misused in the BBC's pursuit of an unofficial depiction of purported events related to Rockstar Games.

"We have attempted multiple times to resolve this matter with the BBC without any meaningful resolution.

Cannes: StarStream Media backs ‘Young Americans’

8 May 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Dane DeHaan and Daniel Radcliffe are reuniting with their Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas to play the young Republican consultant Karl Rove and strategist Lee Atwater alongside Amanda Seyfried.

Xyz Films will handle international sales in Cannes on the story, based on true events surrounding a wild road trip the two friends undertook in the 1970s.

In Young Americans the cross-country journey becomes something of a crash course in dirty tricks as the pair encounter a young political femme fatale.

Bruce Cohen and Liz Destro of Destro Films are producing alongside Kim Leadford of StarStream Media and Frank Frattaroli of Circle Of Confusion.

UTA Independent packaged the film and will be representing North American rights.

Principal photography is scheduled to kick off in autumn.

Young Americans marks the third collaboration between StarStream and Xyz Films after Kevin Smith’s Yoga Hosers and Jeff Baena’s Life After Beth. »
