★★☆☆☆ Released today on DVD, Tim Burton's Big Eyes (2014) stars Amy Adams as Margaret Keane (née Ulbrich), a woman we first encounter on the brink of divorce. It's the late 1950s and, with her daughter in tow, Margaret forsakes the colour-coded conformity of suburbia for a new life in the big city, painting furniture during the week and selling her own art at weekends. It's at an art fair that she first meets Brian Keane, played by Christoph Waltz, a charming charismatic salesman full of the giddy enthusiasm of art, the happy amateur brimming over with his time on the Left Bank in Paris and vaguely ashamed of his day job as a successful realtor.

Occasionally, a movie villain will pause for a moment to deliver a brief story or anecdote. And often, these apparently incidental tales tell us a lot about an antagonist's state of mind, experiences or warped worldview.
We've compiled a selection of 20 here. Some of them are blackly funny. Many are disturbing. One or two are even moving. The first one's very strange. All of them bring something unique to each particular film in which they appear, and all of them are laced with a delicious hint of menace.

From director Tim Burton, Big Eyes tells the outrageous true story of one of the most epic frauds in history. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, painter Walter Keane (Waltz) had reached success beyond belief, revolutionizing the commercialization of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes.

Daniel Craig has returned to filming for 'Spectre'. The 47-year-old actor underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a knee injury he suffered on the set of the new James Bond movie earlier this month and he's now said to be back on location in London already. A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Daniel is made of strong stuff and wanted to return as quick as possible. ''He filmed the face shots but his double was doing all the running. ''Daniel will have to take it easy until his knee is strong enough for strenuous sequences.'' It was previously claimed that the hunky star had not missed any filming to have his operation as the ''minor procedure'' took place during a ''scheduled break''. However, it was said he would not be rejoining production until April 22 when filming moved to London's Pinewood Studios. 'Spectre' - which also stars Christoph Waltz, »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Six cast members -- Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner -- were on "Kimmel" preparing for the movie's big L.A. premiere that night. Jkl really went into superhero mode, with videos like "Cheesy Marvel Cartoon Openings" and "The AvenGerbils: Hamsters of Thor," discussions on Marvel Comics and costumes, Bruce Banner/Iron Man bromance fan art, fan Q&A, and the Avengers playing fun games of Family Feud and Telephone.

Many fans (and some movie news outlets, for that matter) have long since established in their minds that Christoph Waltz has to be playing Blofeld in the upcoming James Bond movie, “Spectre.” However, Waltz himself states that this idea couldn’t be further from the truth. Waltz has stated that he’s not playing Blofeld in the upcoming film. In fact, he seems a little irritated by the suggestion. “That rumor started on the internet and the internet is a pest,” he told GQ Magazine UK. “The name of my character is Franz Oberhauser.” Of course, everyone is on tenterhooks particularly because of what happened with “Star Trek Into Darkness.” Benedict Cumberbatch [ Read More ]

2015 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News
Maybe the second most anticipated movie of the summer is Jurassic World, in part because Hollywood’s newest, biggest star, Chris Pratt, gets the chance to headline yet another blockbuster. But if you watched the trailer some weeks ago, you might’ve noticed how grim, self-serious and decidedly not Andy Dwyer/Starlord-esque charming and funny Pratt’s character was.
The first sigh of relief came this week when the first clip for the film was released this week, which you can watch above. Pratt is playfully flirting with Bryce Dallas-Howard in the scene, hinting at why the two of them never had a second date. Charming and funny? Maybe. Badly written? Arguably. Cliche? Probably. But is it sexist?

When The Atlantic analyzed complaints to the FCC for the past three years of Saturday Night Live, it made an important discovery: Many SNL viewers did not enjoy that one sketch "suggesting that men should give women their penis in a box as a present." Yes, "Dick in a Box" (which originally aired in 2006 but has been rebroadcast over the years) was one of the most frequent targets of the 100 letters the FCC received about SNL, with one viewer objecting to its "profane attempt at humor ... not funny and beyond vulgar." The inclusion of Justin Timberlake was also suspicious, the same letter-writer said, as the singer "was involved in the Janet Jackson Super Bowl stunt." It's a crotch-spiracy! Only one recent sketch received more complaints than "Dick in a Box": "Djesus Uncrossed," a Django Unchained parody that starred Christoph Waltz as a wisecracking, rampaging Jesus. "Would NBC »

When Christoph Waltz was announced to be joining the cast of James Bond 24, the Internet rumour mill went into overdrive that he would be playing classic Bond villain Ernest Stavro Blofeld , head of evil organisation Spectre. When Spectre was announced as the name of the latest adventure for the suave super spy, the rumours gained more momentum, even though Waltz's character was named Franz Oberhauser. People, of course, assumed this was a ruse to throw us off the scent to his character's true identity, but the actor has being keen to stress that he is not playing Blofeld. At one point, he revealed to Collider that Oberhauser wasn't the head of Spectre, saying "It's more interesting than that". But the rumours have persisted, with many fans believing this to be another case similar to the cover up of Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness or Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises. »

He issued his denial to GQ. “That is absolutely untrue,” he said, before blaming websites just like this one. “That rumour started on the Internet, and the Internet is a pest. The name of my character is Franz Oberhauser.”
Well, sorry to be a pest, Christoph.
The truth of the matter is that his character is indeed called Franz Oberhauser. We’ll hear that name spoken, and see it written on official documents.
But does that mean he isn’t, actually, also Ernst Stavro Blofeld? I think we can agree that Benedict Cumberbatch did play John Harrison in Star Trek Into Darkness, even while he was actually playing you know who too.
I can imagine Eon Productions are going to want my guts for garters, »

It seems that Christoph Waltz is sticking to his story. On the very day that the cast for Spectre was officially unveiled, actor Christoph Waltz revealed that his character was called Franz Oberhauser, despite many believing he would play the classic Bond villain Blofeld. Since then he has denied playing Blofeld several times, but since the release of the first teaser trailer many fans are sure that his character is indeed super spy’s arch nemesis.
In an interview with GQ, Waltz was once again asked if he is playing Blofeld to which he responded, “That is absolutely untrue. That rumour started on the Internet, and the Internet is a pest. The name of my character is Franz Oberhauser.”

Last November, Christoph Waltz was rumored to play the villain in the new James Bond film, and that villain could be 007’s old nemesis, Blofeld. Blofeld, for those who don’t know, is the head of the evil organization Spectre, which is also the title of the latest Bond pic. So Waltz, who relishes villainous roles, must be playing Ernest Stavro Blofeld. Except when the cast was announced for Spectre, Waltz wasn’t playing Blofeld. He was playing a new character named “Franz Oberhauser”. Clearly, the name was some kind of ruse and that “Oberhauser” is a cover. But Waltz continues to stress that he’s not Blofeld. [caption id="attachment_349509" align="alignright" width="352"] Image via The Weinstein Company[/caption] When we spoke to him December while he was doing press for Big Eyes and asked if he was playing Blofeld, he replied, ““No. No. It’s more interesting than that.” Waltz has now been asked again, »

Christopher Waltz may have already poured cold water over speculation that attributed his Spectre role with that of Bond arch nemesis Blofeld, but following the release of the spy thriller’s tantailizing first teaser, which had him sitting at the head of what can only be the main headquarters of the titular organization, fan interest in Ernst Stavro raised its head once more.
But according to the actor himself, that conjecture is “absolutely untrue,” as he tackled the Blofeld talk head on in an interview with GQ, where he insisted that his villain’s name is Oberhauser, as the marketing campaign has repeatedly stated.
“That is absolutely untrue. That rumour started on the internet, and the internet is a pest. The name of my character is Franz Oberhauser.”

"That is absolutely untrue. That rumour started on the Internet, and the Internet is a pest. The name of my character is Franz Oberhauser." ~ Christoph Waltz (GQ) Sure, Christoph. Sure. It has long been rumored two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz is playing the head of Spectre, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and not his character's credited name, Franz Oberhauser, in the upcoming 24th James Bond film Spectre, due in theaters Nov. 6. You can understand why people would think this. Waltz is playing a villain, and the title of the movie is Spectre. You would expect the villain in a movie with the title of the source of one of Bond's greatest foes would be Blofeld. Waltz, in an interview with GQ, wanted to quash those rumors... although, I doubt anyone will stop believing this after his comments. Him being Blofeld just makes too much sense every way you look at it. »

Just days after we heard Christoph Waltz was joining Spectre, rumors started swirling that he’d play classic Bond villain Blofeld. Of course, he quickly denied those stories, and now he’s denying them again. According to him, those claims are “absolutely untrue.” But… are they? The same story that originated the Blofeld rumor also stated that Waltz’s […]
