What does the latest British invasion say about the state of American acting?

28 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Martin Luther King Jr., is a celebrated American icon. His wife, Coretta, was a beloved American public figure. President Lyndon Johnson was a colorful Texan, and Governor George Wallace was a good ol' boy son of the South from Alabama. In director Ava DuVernay's Best Picture nominee about the 1965 Selma civil-rights march, however, they're portrayed by David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, and Tim Roth, respectively, who share at least one thing in common: They're British. Selma isn't an exception—rather, the Brits seem to be everywhere lately. Last year's Best Picture winner, 12 Years a Slave, about a 19th-century »

That Steve Jobs Biopic Finally Has a Cast

28 January 2015 5:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The game of musical chairs that is the Steve Jobs biopic has finally come to an end (we think).

The Aaron Sorkin-penned project has seen several stars come and go (Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale), one high-profile director come and go (David Fincher), and even a studio come and go (Sony gave it up, now it's being made by Universal). The quagmire of a movie became somewhat infamous due to the Sony email hack.

Well, now all is settled. "Steve Jobs" began filming this week, with these actors: Michael Fassbender as Jobs; Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak; Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley; and Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, former Macintosh marketing chief.

The movie is made up of three, long, real-time scenes, the last of which focuses on the 1998 launch of the iMac. At the least, that should prove to be colorful. »

The Last Of Us Movie Will Remain “Pretty Faithful” To The Game; Second Draft Already Complete

27 January 2015 11:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the course of their nascent history, video game adaptations are often met with a particular kind of scrutiny. Sure, that preconception largely comes down to a series of mediocre translations that fail to capture the tone and atmosphere of their source material. But with interpretations of Michael Fassbender-led Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and The Last of Us all looming on the horizon, the sub-genre may soon experience a renaissance of sorts.

It’s a charge that has been spearheaded by the latter IP, given how well Naughty Dog’s PlayStation-exclusive was received among critics and fans alike. And in a recent interview with Game Informer, the studio’s Neil Druckmann touched upon development of the film version, stating that the translation will remain faithful to the game, but will still make some “big changes” in the journey between mediums.

Sophie Turner talks playing Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse and “emulating” Famke Janssen

26 January 2015 9:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was announced last week that Sophie Turner had been cast as the younger Jean Grey in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse (alongside Tye Sheridan as young Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp as a young Storm) and now the Game of Thrones star has spoken out about her new role.

“I was getting out of the car to walk in to the audition,” she told Access Hollywood. “And then my agent started ringing and she was like ‘Have you heard the news?’ ‘No, what news?’ Then she was like ‘Check your Twitter’. So then I checked it and… I was just getting like, ‘Congratulations Jean Grey.’ Then I just started crying and I messed up the whole audition because I was just like, ‘I can’t speak!'”
