Watch: Actors and Filmmakers Answer 'What's Your Favorite Movie That No One Has Seen?'

26 January 2015 10:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Academy Originals series continues to provide viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood. This time, they asked actors, screenwriters, directors and producers what their favorite movie is that they think no one else has seen. Many, including actors Mark Whalberg and Jennifer Garner and director David O. Russell answered the tough question. Highlights from the video include Ralph Fiennes, who says, "A film I've seen recently that really effected me is an Iranian film called 'Manuscripts Don't Burn.'" Jonah Hill, having starred in "The Wolf of Wall Street," answers with another Martin Scorsese film: "The King of Comedy" from 1982. Screenwriter John Ridley chooses the 1969 Francis Ford Coppola film "The Rain People," calling it "an astonishing piece of work." David O. Russell answers with an impressive three films: "Love and Anarchy," "The Seduction of Mimi" and "Seven Beauties." Have you seen »

Your Guide to Awards Show Season Reaction Shots

23 January 2015 3:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Reaction shots are the (occasionally unintended) visual punchlines of award shows. For every tongue-in-cheek Martin Freeman reaction, there's a stone-faced Frances McDormand smash-cut for Twitter to crow over. So before the SAG Awards get underway, we're taking a look back at some of the best "reactors" at awards shows and attempting to predict who's going to be the one to watch this year. Britney SpearsWe're not sure what happened to Spears at the 2012 VMAs, but it kind of looks like an outtake from The Exorcist.

Bradley Cooper's 10 Greatest Roles, Ranked In Order

19 January 2015 3:14 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Clint Eastwood.s American Sniper went wider over the weekend, and while it dominated the box office with a record take, it divided critics and audience members with its political and military messages. The one factor everyone agreed on, though, was the incredible performance by leading man Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, a decorated Navy Seal who dedicated his life to his brothers in arms. It.s hard to believe that this is the same guy who charmed Jennifer Garner in Alias, and entertained audiences in the Hangover trilogy. American Sniper is Bradley Cooper.s third straight Best Actor nomination, following nods for his two films with director David O. Russell. But where does it rank on a list of the all-time great Bradley Cooper roles? We decided to comb over his resume and single out our choices for the 10 best, ranked from two to one. 10.

American Sniper review

19 January 2015 2:14 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Clint Eastwood's new film, American Sniper, may have smashed box office records. Yet it's riddled with problems...

American Sniper doesn't need defending. The film racked up six Academy Award nominations, and Thursday's announcement spurred on the wide release of the film in the United States this weekend to a record-breaking $90m opening. Unfortunately, it may also be the worst film that director Clint Eastwood has ever made.

That's not to say that we place the blame at Eastwood's feet, although his no-frills approach to directing is one of the many things that works against the film. The memoir American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History has been kicking around for a long time at Bradley Cooper's production company. At various times in its development, it's been intended for Chris Pratt to star as Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, with David O. Russell »

How “American Sniper” became Clint Eastwood’s biggest hit to date

19 January 2015 12:39 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the past few weeks, Clint Eastwood’s second 2014 release (after the mostly ignored musical Jersey Boys) American Sniper has gone from an also ran in the awards race to a Best Picture nominee and a huge financial success. What started with an incredibly profitable limited opening has morphed now into a wide release that has set all the records for the box office in the month of January. How did this happen? This was once thought of as a second tier film through and through, so what makes it the blockbuster among the Academy’s Best Picture lineup. Let’s look at the movie now and try to find out. First of all, if you know nothing about the movie, here’s a quick primer. It’s a biopic/war film about decorated sniper Chris Kyle, known as perhaps the United States’ best ever in that field.

Jennifer Lawrence Takes 'The Dive' With James Cameron, Emily Blunt Heads To 'Huntsman 2' & More

17 January 2015 9:13 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jennifer Lawrence has a busy 2015 ahead of her. The actress will team with David O. Russell for "Joy" in the early part of the year, and right after that heads to Montreal to shoot "X-Men: Apocalypse." She's also got "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2" that she'll have to do press for, but it looks she's not done working with director Francis Lawrence just yet. She's reteaming with the helmer for "The Dive," which has the added bonus of James Cameron producing. The project is set up at Fox and tells the true story of "freedivers Francisco 'Pipin' Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre, who competed to travel as deep as possible underwater on a single breath of air. Lawrence will play Mestre, who died during an attempt to beat her own world record of 557.7 feet." No word yet on when this production will get wet. [The Wrap]  That "Snow White And The Huntsman »

Sia: Meet Pop's Most Mysterious Star

She had one of the hottest hits of 2014 with "Chandelier" and nearly broke the Internet when the video for "Elastic Heart" dropped last week. But who is Sia, really? The 39-year-old Aussie pop star (full name: Sia Furler) shot onto the scene in 2005 when her song "Breathe Me" was featured in the Six Feet Under finale, but she struggled with fame. The pressures of being in the public eye drove her to addiction. After contemplating suicide, the singer cleaned up and almost retired, deciding to write songs rather than perform.

Forecast: 'Sniper' Sets Sights on January Record

15 January 2015 5:18 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: American Sniper earned a massive $5.3 million from Thursday night shows beginning at 7 p.m. That's over three times as much as Lone Survivor and Taken 3 made during their late Thursday shows ($1.5 million each).That number may be inflated a bit by the fact that Sniper scored six Oscar nominations*including Best Picture*earlier in the day. Still, it's a clear sign that there's huge demand for this movie right now; it would be shocking if this fell short of setting a new January record ($41.5 million).Forecast: Over the long Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, three brand-new movies*The Wedding Ringer, Paddington and Blackhat*are opening nationwide. However, it's likely that all three of those trail American Sniper, which is expanding to 3,555 locations following an exceptional three-week run in limited release.In those three weeks, the Clint Eastwood war drama earned $3.4 million from just four locations.

DGA Nominations Give Boost to ‘Imitation Game,’ ‘American Sniper’ (Analysis)

13 January 2015 11:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tuesday’s DGA nominations are good news for Morten Tyldum, not so good for Ava DuVernay and David Fincher — though the exclusions don’t mean they don’t still have Oscar nomination possibilities.

With only five slots, some deserving folks didn’t make the cut. However, they shouldn’t give up hope: The nominees for the Directors Guild of America and Oscar have been identical only five times since 1970.

It’s an international race, with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (“Birdman”) hailing from Mexico; Morten Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”) from Norway; two from Texas, Wes Anderson (“Grand Budapest Hotel”) and Richard Linklater (“Boyhood”); and one California native, Clint Eastwood (“American Sniper”).

The omission of DuVernay wasn’t a surprise, since the 15,000 voters of the DGA were not sent screeners of “Selma” (though Academy members were). And many pundits predicted a nod for Fincher (“Gone Girl”). Possible dark horses included James Marsh, “The Theory of Everything”; Damien Chazelle, »

Eastwood, Iñárritu, Linklater, (Wes) Anderson and Tyldum land DGA nominations

13 January 2015 9:58 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Directors Guild of America (DGA) is notable in the season for a number of reasons. First, it's a massive voting body unlike most on the circuit, so their nominations choices can often hint toward consensus. Second, their winner very often goes on to win the Academy Award for Best Director, which as we all know tends to presage the Best Picture Oscar. But... ...one wonders how those two elements are being viewed as of late. After all, the last two years have seen a split, once by necessity ("Argo" director Ben Affleck was not nominated), the second time in a close race. Could it be that the Academy will start looking at these categories differently rather than as a package deal? Maybe, maybe not. I have no real answers there. I'm just asking the question. Anyway, the DGA nominated mostly expected names today. Clint Eastwood, naturally. "American Sniper" is cruising. »

Predicting The Directors Guild Of America Nominees For Feature Film

12 January 2015 7:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tomorrow, the Directors Guild of America will announce their nominations for their 67th annual awards, so let’s take a look at whose names we’ll most likely be seeing in those five coveted slots for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures.

Last year, it wasn’t particularly hard to narrow down the five finalists. We had solid locks with Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity), Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave), David O. Russell (American Hustle), and Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street). That final slot had a couple of potential names that could have filled it, but Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips) seemed the most likely candidate, and indeed was chosen by the DGA. However, the Academy decided to replace him later on with Alexander Payne for the over-hyped and disappointing Nebraska.

This year is a completely different ballgame. As it stands, there are only two names that appear to be locks, »

Angelina Jolie Makes Surprise Appearance at L.A. Film Critics Awards

11 January 2015 9:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Angelina Jolie added a dose of star power to the 40th annual Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. awards, which honored achievements in independent and world cinema.

Jolie, whose appearance had been whispered about but not announced in advance, was on hand Saturday night at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City to present career achievement honors to acting legend Gena Rowlands. The pair co-starred in 1998’s “Playing by Heart” and 2004’s “Taking Lives.”

Jolie followed an effusive and heartfelt speech from Lafca member Chuck Wilson, who proclaimed Rowlands the equivalent of Marlon Brando for her impact onscreen acting. Wilson then called on Jolie to introduce Rowlands, and the actress and “Unbroken” director delivered some very personal remarks, noting that she had studied Rowlands’ work when she was starting out in the biz.

She also nodded to Rowlands’ famed collaborations with her late husband, filmmaker and actor John Cassavetes, observing, “Every artist »

Watch This Supercut of Annapurna Pictures' Films From 2012-Today

7 January 2015 11:06 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Is there a single person who has done more for the film industry in the past few years than Megan Ellison? I don't think so. The 28-year-old founder of Annapurna Pictures has produced some of the best movies of the decade so far, and she's become a beacon of light in an often-depressing cinematic landscape: she actually seems to value and cherish the opinions and talent of auteurs ranging from Paul Thomas Anderson to Spike Jonze, Kathryn Bigelow to David O. Russell, and more. The Playlist points us to this excellent supercut featuring many of the movies she's ushered to the big screen in the past three years, including Her, Zero Dark Thirty, Lawless, American Hustle, and The Master, just to name a few. Thankfully, Ellison seems like she's just getting started, and fans of cinema should be very happy about that. We may need her now more than ever. »
