Our dream cast for the 'Goldfinch' movie

30 July 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer-Prize winning novel The Goldfinch was picked up for a movie adaptation by Warner Bros. on Tuesday. The book tells the story of Theo Decker, whose mother is killed in a museum bombing and whose father wants little to do with him. During the bombing, Decker stole The Goldfinch, the 1654 painting by Carel Fabritius, which he keeps hidden from the world. The book is 800 pages long and spans decades, so compressing it all into one movie will be a challenge. The cast of characters is small but memorable, and since it’s so high-profile, could attract a »

How Daniel Radcliffe Killed Harry Potter and Found ‘What If’

30 July 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Growing up, Daniel Radcliffe always thought Harry Potter would die at the end of J.K. Rowling’s books. “Because of the prophecy with Lord Voldemort,” Radcliffe says on a recent afternoon in New York, between cigarette puffs. “I thought, ‘How is she going to get out of that one?’ ” He finally worked up the courage to ask the bestselling author when she came to see him in the London production of “Equus” in 2007. “I was happy to be proven wrong,” Radcliffe says. “For an actor, what more can you wish for? You get a death scene — and then you get more screen time.”

Even though Voldemort couldn’t finish off Potter, someone else has. The culprit is none other than Radcliffe himself, who was cast to play the boy wizard at the age of 11 in 2001’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Over the next 10 years, the eight “Potter »

Watch: Harry Potter Gets 'Boyhood' Treatment in 'Potterhood' Trailer

30 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you haven't gone our of your way to see Richard Linklater's stunning achievement that is Boyhood, make sure you see when and where it will be playing near you right here. But for those of you who have both seen the trailer for the coming-of-age masterpiece and are massive Harry Potter fans, you'll like this clever trailer that was put together to commemorate the wizarding franchise. Potterhood is exactly what you think it would be, framing the story of The Boy Who Lived as if it were the 12-year project Linklater made. The sound editing needs some serious work to make this more effective, but it's very touching to see the aging of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint framed in this cinematic fashion. Watch! Here's the trailer for Potterhood, inspired by Richard Linklater's Boyhood, from Slate: Filmed from 2002 to 2013, Boyhood covers 12 years in the life of a family. »

Noah Blu-Ray Review

29 July 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Darren Aronofsky at the helm, Noah was always going to be a Biblically ambitious sight to behold, and a vividly strange one at that. Creative liberties are one thing, but did anyone expect the man behind Requiem For A Dream and The Fountain to adhere strictly to the Bible’s cut and dry storytelling? Aronofsky’s retelling of “Noah’s Ark” blends elements of Lord Of The Rings with God’s bleaker trials and tribulations, getting a wee bit darker than I remember Noah’s adventure, but stunning camerawork and artistic attention make use of massive color palates much like Andy Warhol might – but a Catholic school special, this is not. Either I zoned out when my Catholicism teacher detailed how gargantuan rock monsters helped Noah fight off an invading army of dissidents, or Aronofsky decided that religion needed a jolt of Hollywood magic.

New on DVD/Blu-ray: The Spectacular 'Noah,' the Surprisingly Sweet 'The Other Woman' and More

29 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Noah - Paramount Pictures - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD Director: Darren Aronofsky Cast: Russell CroweJennifer ConnellyRay Winstone,Anthony HopkinsEmma Watson. Full cast + crew Noah is a stunning piece of filmmaking. Of course, that's to be expected when it comes to a movie about the construction of a giant ark intended to survive an apocalyptic flood, but Darren Aronofsky pushes his movie far beyond your standard biblical epic and turns it into a transcendent, engrossing spectacle. Seriously, there are just some downright gob-smacking visuals in this movie, with many of them coming before the big flood even happens. But Noah is also a complex morality tale about the very nature of mankind and the way we often blind...

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Noah,' 'The Other Woman,' 'Twin Peaks'

29 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery"

What's It About? David Lynch's two season TV series had viewers riveted to figure out who killed the beaming blonde homecoming queen Laura Palmer. And maybe, just maybe, some of us fell a little in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), the curious FBI agent sent to investigate Laura's murder while enjoying many damn fine cups of coffee.

Why We're In: This ten-disc set comes with both seasons of "Twin Peaks," as well as the movie "Fire Walk With Me," plenty of featurettes, and deleted scenes (!!!!) from the beloved TV series. Not that we'll ever really know what happened in the strange little town of Twin Peaks, Wa.

Morten Tyldum Set to Direct the Book-to-Film Adaptation of Chain Of Events

29 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Morten Tyldum’s Headhunters follow-up, The Imitation Game, won’t make its big debut until the Toronto International Film Festival in September, but the film is picking up Oscar buzz, so it should come as no surprise that Tyldum has already locked another project, the big screen adaptation of Fredrik T. Olsson’s Chain of Events.  The book doesn’t even arrive until November 4, 2014, but Warner Bros. snatched up the rights last August and is already making moves to get the movie version going. The book is being described as “World War Z meets The Da Vinci Code,” and covers what happens when a former cryptologist is kidnapped and assigned to solve a coded message while his ex-wife tries to track him down.  Hit the jump for more. As reported by Variety, Mark L. Smith is busy penning the script, which should be an interesting change of pace for him »

Warner Bros. Sets ‘Imitation Game’ Director for ‘Chain of Events’ (Exclusive)

“Headhunters” helmer Morten Tyldum has come on to direct the adaptation of the Swedish thriller “Chain of Events” with Mark L. Smith attached to adapt.

Jesse Ehrman and Racheline Benveniste will oversee for the studio.

Tyldum recently wrapped production on the Weinstein Co. pic “The Imitation Game” starring Benedict Cumberbatch, which is expected to be a contender in this year’s awards season. He is also developing a handful of projects including “The Disciple Program »

Contest: Win Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' On Blu-Ray

28 July 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Washing into theatres this past spring, Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" was unlike any Bible story brought to the big screen in recent memory. Or perhaps ever. Moving away from the traditional Sunday School narrative you might remember, Aronofsky's vision was darker, but also deeply looked at the price of faith, spiritually and emotionally. And if you missed it or want to see it again, we've got a way to make that happen. But first, a recap: Aronofsky's film brings together Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone, and Douglas Booth in the tale that sees Noah tasked by God to build an ark before a flood comes to wipe out the inhabitants of Earth who have gone astray. But Noah will find his faith, survival and relationships challenged by the task, one that must see him reckon with the sin within his own family and himself. »

50 Shades of Grey movie: Twitter reacts to first erotic trailer

24 July 2014 6:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As expected, the internet imploded this lunchtime after the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey was released.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson star in the upcoming movie adaptation of El James's erotic novel, and the trailer has received a rather mixed reaction.

Some felt a certain sense of dread:

Man if 50 Shades of Grey is a movie that spoofs the sad premise that a woman needs a man to give her worth, then this trailer is Killing It.

— Anne T. Donahue (@annetdonahue) July 24, 2014

Can someone please summarize 50 Shades of Grey for me in a tweet.

— Khaela de Leon (@khaela) July 24, 2014

Fifty Shades of Grey looks like it might actually be a bit sexist, based on the trailer. I haven't read the books.

— Jack Seale (@jackseale) July 24, 2014

I thought 50 Shades Of Grey was a romantic movie? Why does he try to kill her at the end with the whips and hand cuffs? »

Happy 25th Birthday, Daniel Radcliffe: 25 Things the Actor Doesn't Have in Common with Harry Potter

For nearly half his life, Daniel Radcliffe was Harry Potter. But he's a grown-up actor now, with starring roles on Broadway and in indie films like Kill Your Darlings. Yes, the role of Potter will likely dog him all his life, but there's a lot more to the actor - who turned 25 years old on Wednesday - than those famous round glasses. To prove it, here are 25 things that make Radcliffe quite different from the character he played over the course of 10 years. 1. Daniel Radcliffe was born on July 23, 1989.

20 Things Harry Potter Film Supporting Actors Are Doing Now

18 July 2014 4:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures/NBC

Casting Harry Potter had to have been a little bit like playing Russian Roulette. You’re bringing in a group of largely untested child actors, and praying to the Cinema God that not only will they commit to an eight film series, but that they’ll grow into talented individuals and not get beaten by an ugly stick on their way through puberty. They dodged a bullet with the main trio, with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint all turning out perfectly fine. They’ve got good heads on their shoulders and seem remarkably mature in their ability to pick roles that will work for them as adults.

But what about the rest of the cast? Because they weren’t just casting Harry, Ron, and Hermione — they had a school full of students to fill. So what happens to the actors who are part of such a huge franchise, »
