Michael Keaton says film Birdman will change the way movies are made

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Michael Keaton has said that his new film Birdman will change the way Hollywood movies are made in the future.

Alejandro González Iñárritu's film was edited to appear as though it was filmed in one continuous shot.

In an interview with The Guardian, Keaton said: "There was a part where Zach Galifianakis and I were saying: 'Why don't we make the movie the normal way? Why are we doing it like this?' Then you see it and … woah.

"At about minute four or 11, you feel that door behind you slowly click shut and you go: 'Ok, now I'm in. There's no getting off.' It might be extreme to say this, but other people have said it too so I'm gonna go ahead...Birdman has kinda…changed things."

The 63-year-old added: "I'm not saying you won't see traditionally made movies any more. But I've had meetings with directors »

Naomi Watts Defends Renee Zellweger: 'I Saw a Picture and Thought She Looked Great'

19 December 2014 10:09 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Looks like Renee Zellweger has another celebrity defender against the intense media scrutiny she received when she stepped out looking almost unrecognizable in October.

In a new interview with British InStyle, Naomi Watts -- who was recently nominated for a SAG Award for her performance in St. Vincent -- comments on the headline-making plastic surgery rumors surrounding the Bridget Jones' Diary star.

"[The backlash] was cruel and unnecessary," she tells the magazine (via E! News). "I saw a picture and I thought she looked great! She looked amazing! Leave her alone! You can't win can you?"

But Naomi, 46, understands the choice to get plastic surgery.

"I don't have any judgment about [plastic surgery]; whoever makes that choice, that's fine," she says. "It's not easy watching yourself get older, but when I look at two women in their fifties or sixties or seventies side by side, one who's had »

Peter Debruge’s Top 10 Films of 2014

17 December 2014 1:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tastes change. Not just those of the moviegoing public, who’ve gotten so wise to the sales pitches and story formulas that the town has had no choice but to adapt, propelling a self-aware superhero movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” above the likes of Cap and Spidey at the box office, and making sly, meta-minded directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller — responsible for ultra-blockbuster “The Lego Movie” and wink-wink sequel “22 Jump Street” — the hottest helming duo in town. But over time, critics’ tastes change, too.

In February, I relocated from Los Angeles to Paris, to take up my new post as Variety’s chief international film critic. As you can imagine, my diet underwent a radical upheaval — and I’m not talking about crepes and chocolate mousse, either. What I wasn’t prepared for was how swiftly my moviegoing palate might adapt to this new post.

I’d been raised on junk-food American fare, »

Rene Russo really needs to be in the supporting actress Oscar discussion, folks

16 December 2014 4:08 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This year's Best Supporting Actress field has more or less firmed up. It seems Patricia Arquette and Meryl Streep are ahead of the pack and have been for weeks. Keira Knightley and Emma Stone are on somewhat solid ground, rounding out the four with the HFPA/Bfca/SAG trifecta. Jessica Chastain is obviously in the mix and we've already written about Tilda Swinton being in the thick of it (as well as about why Minnie Driver deserves to be in the thick of it). Naomi Watts has her SAG nod, but that will probably have to suffice. And so that seems to be the field. But you know who really should be in this conversation? Rene freakin' Russo, that's who. I've delighted in seeing the "Nightcrawler" star pop up on a few critics' nominations lists, and even win. But as Jake Gyllenhaal slowly works on cracking the Best Actor five, »

Oscar Race 2015: Hollywood Weighs In

15 December 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Which was the bigger snub last week for Angelina Jolie? Being dissed by Sony Pictures brass in the notorious leaked e-mails, or having her movie "Unbroken" get passed over by the Screen Actors Guild Award and Golden Globe nominators?

Indeed, Hollywood spent so much of the past week fixated on the embarrassing revelations of the purloined e-mails that it seemed to pay little attention to the first big round of awards nominations -- Wednesday's announcement of the potential Screen Actors Guild honorees and Thursday's list of the Globe nominations.

It's worth remembering that there are vast differences between the two nominating organizations in terms of both prestige and Oscar handicapping. The Screen Actors Guild has a nominating committee of 2100 members of the actors' union, with the full membership of about 165,000 eligible to vote for the winners. So it's actors voting for their peers, and since actors make up the biggest branch of the Academy, »

New Insurgent Trailer Lands Online

12 December 2014 10:02 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

When last we saw Shailene Woodley’s Tris, she had temporarily thwarted the ruling ambitions of Erudite leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet) and was on the run with Dauntless comrade/lover Four (Theo James). Now, in Insurgent, she’s ready to take the fight to the enemy to reclaim civilisation. While the teaser for the sequel (which goes by the full, slightly cumbersome name of The Divergent Series: Insurgent) featured Woodley’s heroine and her mother (Ashley Judd) in what looked like a dream/test sequence, this new promo kicks things up several notches in terms of action, conflict, snogging, running and Miles Teller being a total douche.Jeanine, it would appear, has laid hands on a strange glowing box that seemingly holds the key to power in the dystopian society so split into factions. But a divergent is apparently needed to open it. Cue a hunt for Tris even as »

Thrilling Full Trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

12 December 2014 9:16 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A full trailer had been released for Summit Entertainment's The Divergent Series: Insurgent. I've never read any of the books in this series, and I thought the first movie was ok. That being said, this sequel looks a lot better. This is a thrilling action-packed trailer that I'm sure fans of the franchise will enjoy. The story also seems to take a really interesting turn. 

The movie stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Daniel Dae Kim, Naomi Watts, and Kate Winslet. Here's the synopsis:

The Divergent Series: Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago.

Tris goes Factionless in new trailer for Divergent Series: Insurgent

12 December 2014 9:02 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

More shattered glass and train-jumping can mean only one thing: Divergent’s back!

Last time we saw her, Tris (Shailene Woodley) lost both her parents during Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet) and her Erudite faction’s blood-stained overthrow of the Abnegation government.

With a handful of rebels from Dauntless, Abnegation, and Candor, Tris and Four (Theo James) have started fighting back, but they’re low in numbers. The Factionless, the rejects of the Faction system who are led by the gun-toting Evelyn Johnson-Eaton (Naomi Watts), might have a solution.

It looks like Shailene’s former movie boyfriends Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) and Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) are both supporting Erudite though Caleb (Elgort) appears to be a double agent, feeding the rebels with information about one of Jeanine’s new Divergent-related projects.

Jeanine’s looking for a certain Divergent and of course it’s probably Tris. »

New The Divergent Series: Insurgent Trailer, Poster, and Images Find Shailene Woodley on the Run

12 December 2014 8:38 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Summit Entertainment has released a new theatrical trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second in what will be a four-film adaptation of author Veronica Roth’s dystopian sci-fi series.  The Divergent sequel finds the principal characters on the run in the fringes of society and searching for answers after breaking open the world as they knew it.  To be honest, I have no earthly idea what the hell is going in in this Insurgent trailer, but this new installment does have come compelling visuals and interesting concepts at play.  Though this is the most stiff I have ever seen the normally vibrant Winslet.  Watch the new Insurgent trailer, check out a new poster, and new images for the film after the jump.  The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo JamesAnsel ElgortKate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Daniel Dae Kim, Maggie Q, Ray Stevenson, and Zoe Kravitz. »

Full Trailer: "The Divergent Series: Insurgent"

12 December 2014 8:27 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A few months ago came that decidedly weird and essentially standalone teaser trailer involving a gravity-defying building and heroine Tris (Shailene Woodley) engaging in some high-powered stunt work.

Now, Lionsgate has unveiled the full trailer for "Insurgent," the "Divergent" follow-up which seems to have a much darker and more aggressively action-oriented approach than the first film. Sporting actual footage showcasing all the returning characters, plus new additions including Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer, this certainly seems to raise the stakes for the franchise and provided a much more intense looking entry than the previous one.

Robert Schwentke helms the new film which opens in March.
