Seventeen Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Explains Why We Love YouTubers

17 hours ago | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

It seemed fitting when the teen-favorite periodical Seventeen Magazine announced its October 2015 issue would highlight 30 different YouTubers, featuring Bethany Mota on the cover. As this issue hits stands today, editor-in-chief Ann Shoket took to the official YouTube blog to explain why the magazine and its readers are so enamored with these young stars. Shocket primarily cites the down-to-earth, approachable lifestyles and attitudes most YouTube celebrities have compared to traditional media stars. She states that “on YouTube, we root for the people who are sort of unpolished, a little weird even. We connect with them because they show us their authentic selves, because they are accessible to us.” A survey conducted by Variety recently confirmed this accessibility idea. Several questions were posed to U.S. teens about how “real” the survey’s selected new media and traditional media celebrities appeared. The results were more in favor of YouTubers like Smosh and The Fine Bros. »

Brie Larson and Ben Kingsley up the pedigree of Daniel Radcliffe-led 'Brooklyn Bridge'

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Daniel Radcliffe will win an Oscar, eventually. He's driven, he's eclectic, he's riding Leonardo DiCaprio-esque blockbuster momentum that he's happy to cash in for provocative material, and, most importantly, he's good. And getting better. Holding his own against Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith and Ralph Fiennes for a decade certainly helped. Based on the talent assembled for his latest project, Radcliffe's time could be coming sooner than later. Goldcrest Films announced today that Sir Ben Kinglsey ("Schindler's List") and Brie Larson ("Short Term 12") will join Radcliffe in Killer Films' "Brooklyn Bridge," the story of engineer Washington Roebling and his calamitous road to realizing New York City's iconic structure. Radcliffe will play Roebling, who inherits the Brooklyn Bridge project from his father (Kinglsey) and finds an unlikely working partner in his wife, Emily (Larson). Radcliffe's costars provide an awards-friendly bedrock for "Brooklyn Bridge." Kinglsey is a four-time Oscar nominee, picking »

Ben Kingsley Joins Brooklyn Bridge

21 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though it originally aimed to kick off filming last month, Brooklyn Bridge, a new drama about the man who oversaw the building of the famous New York structure, has been moved back to next spring. Yet there is good news on the casting front, with Ben Kingsley and Brie Larson climbing the struts to join the ensemble.Daniel Radcliffe will star as the brilliant but inexperienced engineer Washington Roebling, who inherits the mammoth project when his father (Kingsley) dies from tetanus. Initially overwhelmed by the task and driven by an obsession that threatens his family, Roebling overcomes his demons with the help of his equally talented wife Emily (Larson).The resulting bridge took 14 years and cost $15m and 20 lives to build. It's a chapter in American history that should offer plenty of dramatic grist for writer/director Douglas 'Emma' McGrath's screenplay to explore, as well as the chance to see »

22 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

23 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Daniel Radcliffe has been set to play the engineer, Washington Roebling, who built the Brooklyn Bridge in the aptly titled Brooklyn Bridge for several months now.

20 Movie Auditions For Famous Roles You Need To See

16 September 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

YouTube

When it comes to the really iconic characters in film history, we tend to get tremendously attached to the actors that play them. We assign ownership to these characters, and kind of forget that they didn’t always belong to the actors that brought them to life. Luke Skywalker wasn’t always Mark Hamill, and Indiana Jones wasn’t always Harrison Ford. Once upon a time, these parts were up for grabs, and these actors had to audition for them just like everybody else, competing with hundreds of other hopefuls. It’s amazing to sit down and watch the auditions that landed them these fantastic roles, which effectively changed the course of their careers.

But equally interesting are the auditions of actors who, for whatever reason, didn’t get the part, but went on to become celebrities for their work on other projects regardless. It’s a classic what if scenario. »

This Is How Far Daniel Radcliffe Is Willing To Go For A Role

15 September 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This Halloween, Daniel Radcliffe will return to theaters in the fantasy-horror thriller Horns. But it turns out that the Harry Potter actor's true love is history, and he's looking to explore this interest with two enticing docudramas. What's more, he's going the extra mile to make sure that he's doing the material justice. In an engaging interview with Mental Floss, Daniel Radcliffe offered his thoughts on various intellectual curiosities and interests, from reality TV (he loves Top Chef) to his favorite book (Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita). But it came to a simple question about his latest endeavor--teaching himself Japanese--that led to an unexpected update on Tokyo Vice. Radcliffe reports: "I.m trying to learn Japanese. Just to speak. There.s a film I hope to do called Tokyo Vice that has Japanese lines that my character speaks, and he.s supposed to be fairly fluent. I could »

Toronto: Smaller Deals Show Tough Market for Indie Film Business

12 September 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a few hours over the weekend, the Toronto Film Festival looked like its old self — a wild game of “Let’s Make a Deal.” After Chris Rock’s “Top Five” premiered on Saturday night to ecstatic reviews, at least three studios entered a horse race to scoop up the comedy. The bidding ballooned to $12.5 million for worldwide distribution, and Paramount Pictures landed the prize. But after the dust settled, Toronto went back to business as usual: small deals where the studios kicked tires and looked more like picky homebuyers in a slow economic market.

In the process, the festival illustrated just how difficult the indie business has become in a blockbuster-obsessed Hollywood. Being gunshy may turn out to make more financial sense. Last year’s cluster of big deals, a group that included “Begin Again” with Keira Knightley and “What If” with Daniel Radcliffe, never fully ignited at the »

Chris Evans Is Bad at 'Playing It Cool' in This Romcom Trailer

12 September 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Chris Evans has played a whole lot of dark and troubled characters onscreen, from reluctant time-traveler Captain America in "The Avengers" to the leader of a class war in the futuristic "Snowpiercer." This trailer for "Playing It Cool," which was originally known as "A Many Splintered Thing," is a refreshing change of pace for the handsome star, as he plays a screenwriter who's suspicious of love.

Naturally, this unnamed babe meets his match in a spirited, smart woman played by Michelle Monaghan, whose verve causes him to question everything he knows about love and friendship. Especially since - d'oh - she has a boyfriend. (We're also stoked to see an age-appropriate love interest!) "Playing It Cool" aims to address the hoary old chestnut of whether men and women can be friends, and we're curious to see the results. It's got a cute and quippy cast that includes Aubrey Plaza, Luke Wilson, »
