Out of the Furnace hits on Blu-Ray March 11th, and I’ve got a copy available for you to win. With all the hype surrounding awards season, and Christian Bale’s other film, American Hustle, his earlier release hasn’t received a lot of attention recently. Because it hits so close to the Academy Awards show, I wanted to make sure it doesn’t slip by unnoticed.
We didn’t give it the best rating when we reviewed this one on the podcast, but it has a lot that makes it worth watching. Mainly, Bale’s acting, but the rest of the cast does a solid job as well. You may already know that I’m a big fan of Bale’s, and this is a film that really offers up good reason to be. Even in a film that didn’t blow me away, he is still impressive to watch. »

Bradley Cooper is still dating blonde girlfriend Suki Waterhouse and it may be getting serious, the actor is looking to get Suki to move in with him. Bradley recently admitted that his girlfriend is ''the one'' and he now wants her to consider moving in with him in California, but the 22-year-old British model is reluctant because of how well she's doing in the UK. A source said: ''Suki's career is flying in London. She's one of the hottest people on the London fashion scene and doesn't want to lose momentum. ''But Bradley is keen for them to live closer together, and has his home and production company, 22, in La.

The film will chronicle the life and career of Kitt, an actress, dancer, and singer whose successful music and acting career began in the 1950s.
According to The Telegram, Saldana is currently a frontrunner in negotiations for the untitled film.
Last year, Saldana took on the role of singer Nina Simone, a project that garnered criticism due to the actress having a lighter complexion than Simone.
Saldana defended her decision to join the film, which was scheduled to debut in 2013 but has yet to be released.
Before Dave Bautista was cast in the role, there were reports that Jason Momoa had emerged as Marvel's pick to play Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, only for the Game of Thrones and Conan the Barbarian star to allegedly turn down the studio's offer to join the cosmic superhero ensemble. Well, speaking to Zap2It, Momoa - who has since been heavily rumoured for a part in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman - has confirmed that he did audition, and explained his reasons for passing on the movie:
"I think it's perfectly cast. Dave is perfect for that role, for Drax. It didn't really fit in my time because I've done so many things where I don't say much and I'm colored up and I have my shirt off again. I made a conscious choice to turn down some movies that were »

It’s the last week of February, dear readers, and that means that, hopefully, spring will finally be on its way before long. And that also means we’re almost out of the cinematic dumping ground that is the beginning of the year, so people who want to see something good at the theater will have other options than merely seeing The Lego Movie again. But in the meantime, trailers are continuing to come in for the year’s big upcoming movies. Such is the case with this week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’, which examines our first look at the forthcoming summer release Guardians of the Galaxy.
Premise: In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan (Lee Pace). In order to evade Ronan, Quill is forced into »

If two recently released art pieces for the Guillermo Del Toro-produced Book of Life are any indication, the upcoming film should be a vivid visual experience. In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, co-writer/director Jorge Gutierrez offers two stunning concept images (featuring kaleidoscopic city streets and ornate skies) for the upcoming Fox Animation film (see one above), while also discussing his vision for the project's bold look.

Mike Epps is a comedian at heart and one of the funniest comic actors to emerge into the Hollywood scene, but in his latest film, Repentance, he undertakes a serious role as Ben, the loyal brother of Tommy Carter (Anthony Mackie), a spiritual therapist whose successful book attracts the attention of a profoundly disturbed man (Forest Whitaker). Opening in select theaters on February 28th, the horror-thriller directed by Philippe Caland also stars Sanaa Lathan, Nicole Ari Parker, and Ariana Neal. I recently landed an exclusive interview with Epps who talked about how the project came together, what drew him to the role, why the spiritual undertone of the film appealed to him, the easy directing process with Caland, how he stepped up his acting game opposite Mackie, what it was like shooting on location in New Orleans, and how he escapes boredom by pursuing a multi-faceted career. He also discussed his upcoming live comedy show, »

"Ooga-Chaka, Ooga-Ooga Ooga-Chaka."
It's been smooth sailing for Marvel Studios as it cruises through "Phase 2" of its grand scheme to perpetually dominate the global box office. Admittedly, the post-Avengers line-up of movies is pretty safe, dedicated primarily to the solo adventures of old friends in Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But, Marvel's also taking a gamble that audiences will embrace the new kids on the block, the rag-tag team of interstellar heroes at the heart of Guardians of the Galaxy, despite the characters having no direct connection to The Avengers.
Many are already predicting that Guardians will be Marvel's first flop, but people have been predicting Marvel's doom for years and the studio keeps on defying expectations. Now that the hilarious, outrageous first trailer for the movie has been released, we're pretty confident that fans are going to be lining up to »

Sam Worthington was arrested on Sunday afternoon in New York City after getting in a fight with a paparazzo, which ended up with both men a bit bloody and in handcuffs.
Sam Worthington Claims Paparazzo Assaulted His Girlfriend
Worthington, known for his lead role in Avatar, was walking in Greenwich Village with his model girlfriend Lara Bingle when the photographer, Sheng Li, allegedly kicked Bingle’s shins to elicit a reaction from her for a photograph, sparking a physical confrontation with Worthington. Worthington was issued a desk appearance ticket and then released, while Li was charged with assault, reckless endangerment and harassment. This isn't the first time Worthington has been in trouble with the law. In 2012, he was arrested for disorderly conduct.
At Li’s arraignment on Monday, Feb. 24, Li told a different story, claiming that it was Bingle who went after him and instigated the altercation.
“[Li] was on the job taking pictures and Ms. »
Marvel Studios caused quite a stir last week with the reveal of the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, which gave us our first look at the ragtag team of cosmic superheroes [if you fancy watching it again, you can do so here]. The August release is set to open a new chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although it will be tied to previous events - particularly the mid-credits cameo in The Avengers from the Mad Titan himself, Thanos.
Speaking to the Pointless Podcast, Guardians director James Gunn has spoken about the villain, although he played coy when asked about the chances of us seeing an adaptation of the classic limited series The Infinity Gauntlet: "Here's the thing, truthfully the Marvel Cinematic Universe takes out of both the 616 and Ultimate Marvel Comics universe, and then they recreate some elements themselves. What Thanos wants in the comics is not necessarily what Thanos wants in the movies; we don't know yet. »

Last week, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn teased new details about this Marvel Phase Two adventure in an interview excerpt with Pointless Podcast, including why the Skrulls aren't in the movie and the characters he's saving for the second trailer. The full, hour-long version of the podcast debuted today, where the director offers more details about the movie, including Rocket Raccoon's origins, Vin Diesel's process of saying "I am Groot," the Infinity Gauntlet, and how Thanos in this Marvel movie universe may be different than the comic book version.
First up, the filmmaker talked about how Vin Diesel became the perfect embodiment of the tree-like Groot, even though he only has one line of dialogue.
"All of the 'I am Groots' that were earlier voices didn't sound very good at all, they sounded like sh#t. It just didn't work. Then Vin Diesel, came in and, in one day, »
It was a slightly bloody Sunday in NYC's Greenwich Village for Sam Worthington and a paparazzo. The Avatar actor, 37, was arrested for allegedly punching photographer Sheng Li. The Australian star was booked and then released on an assault charge, CNN reports. The altercation is said to have began after Li supposedly kicked Worthington's girlfriend, Lara Bingle, in the shins. Photographer Li was also arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, assault and harassment. Worthington, who recently signed on for two more Avatar sequels along with costar Zoe Saldana, [...] »

Well I’m sure we’ve all been singing “Hooked on a Feeling” for the better part of this week after the release of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy trailer on Tuesday. There have been numerous articles, including a few of our own, going into the protagonists of the story itself; who they are, where they came from, and where they may be going. However, it seemed prudent to change things up a little and delve into those characters looking to cause trouble for the lovable raccoon and tree duo, to say nothing of the other three Guardians (played by Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista). Let’s delve into the murky underbelly of Marvel’s next big undertaking by looking at all of the villains that are set to make appearances in director James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Hit the jump for an in-depth look at »

Gamora might be the most mysterious member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but she's definitely among the most formidable of the crew, and she's definitely able to hold her own.
A stealthy assassin, Gamora has her own unique skill set that she brings to the table. Unlike Drax or Groot, who are known for smashing their way to a solution, or Rocket Raccoon, who let's his tech to the talking, Gamora can get a job done before anyone even knows she's there.
Of course, push comes to shove more often than you'd think. If Gamora was caught, it wouldn't be an easy fight for her foes.
