Kristen Stewart & Nicholas Hoult's Ice Bucket Challenge Is a Little Different (Video)

9 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are the latest celebs to join the Als Ice Bucket Challenge craze, and posted a video in which they not only douse themselves with water, but stick their heads in their full buckets for good measure.

The clip features "Equals" co-stars Stewart and Hoult, alongside friend Scott Fahrendorf, calling out Anne Hathaway (who nominated Stewart), then dunking their heads in their buckets before pouring the contents over their entire bodies. Hoult and Fahrendorf then dump an even larger bucket onto the sopping wet Stewart.

After the stunt, Stewart nominated her pals Jenny Lewis and Brie Larson (with whom she recently starred in the music video for Lewis's tune "Just One of the Guys"), as well as her "Equals" costar Jacki Weaver. Hoult nominated a trio of former costars: Craig Roberts ("Kill Your Friends"), Joe Dempsie ("Skins"), and Colin Firth ("A Single Man"). They also urged »

Time to Help Choose the Next Series: 5 New Pilots Premiere August 28th

11 August 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Big news today: We’re excited to announce Amazon Studios’ third pilot season, beginning August 28th and featuring three half hour comedies The Cosmopolitans, Really and Red Oaks, and two hour-long dramatic thrillers Hand of God and Hysteria.  For one month, it will be up to you to watch, rate and comment – ultimately helping us decide which of them get the greenlight.

“There is something for everyone in this season,” says Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios.  The glamorous life of modern day expats in Paris. The hijinks of a summer job at a country club in 1980s New Jersey. The visions of a vigilante judge who appears to be channeling God.  The complexities of marriage and friendship among a circle of friends in suburban Chicago.  And the mysteries behind a psycho-physiological illness spreading through a small town in Texas. 

You can help choose which of these stories should get “picked up” to become shows. »

Emile Hirsch To Star In Just Jim For Craig Roberts

30 July 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The name Craig Roberts has been high on the list of promising film talent ever since he took the screen by storm in Richard Ayoade’s film, Submarine, in 2010. That role brought with it well-deserved recognition, and a slew of varied offers, including The Double, Bad Neighbors and 22 Jump Street. Now, Roberts is turning all that good will into tangible opportunities behind the camera, by beginning pre-production on his own directorial debut at the tender age of just 23 – Just Jim.

Written by Roberts himself, Just Jim features the lead character realizing that he will be considered part of the socially acceptable group of teenagers, if he can successfully negotiate with his handsome and mysterious American neighbour. While Roberts is expected to play the lead, Emile Hirsch has been cast in the role of his neighbour. The cast is rounded out by Aneirin Hughes (Young Dracula), Nia Roberts (Doctor Who), Richard Harrington »

Emile Hirsch Joins Craig Roberts’ Directorial Debut Just Jim

30 July 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Though Submarine star Craig Roberts is just 23 years old, he’s already gearing up to begin production on his directorial debut.  Roberts will lead Just Jim, which revolves around “a teenage loser whose life is turned around by the appearance of an enigmatic, handsome neighbor.”  ScreenDaily reports that Emile Hirsch has now joined the cast, and one imagines he'd be a swell fit for the aforementioned neighbor.  Filming begins in Wales this week, and co-stars include Aneirin Hughes, Nia Roberts, Richard Harrington, Matthew Aubrey, and newcomers Ryan Owen and Charlotte Randall.  The pic will be released in the UK and Ireland sometime in 2015. The Welsh Roberts—who was recently seen onscreen in Neighbors, The Double, 22 Jump Street—previously directed a music video for the band Los Campesinos, but Just Jim marks his first time helming a feature film.  He’s definitely a promising young talent in front of the camera, »

Casting: Paul Dano Eyes 'War And Peace,' Iggy Azalea Joins 'Fast & Furious 7' And More

30 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's probably not a total shock that a miniseries adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s doorstop "War And Peace" is being described as "the most ambitious event series ever made for the BBC." But it is interesting to see some of the actors being sought. Paul Dano and Lily James have been offered roles in the production, with the former eyed for "Pierre Bezukhov, the awkward illegitimate son who rises in society but leads a tumultuous life as he seeks to overcome his emotions" and the latter as Natasha Rostova, who falls in love with him. The plan is for this one to air in 2015 in the UK, so expect things to start coming together soon.

10 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Are you getting restless about all these halfway posts? We're almost done. The Power of List compels me. There's one more halfway post to go that's basically 'The Oscar Charts are Updated!' as the coding problem I mentioned is fixed and the updates are happening behind the scenes as you read this. We must get all this halfway business behind us by Saturday morning so that we can ape out all weekend with Andy Serkis & Co and start this second half of the year off right.

Best Leading Actress: Keira Knightley does her most relaxed and fluid work ever in Begin Again as a musician at a crossroads, never letting any one aspect of the character's situation pigeonhole her emotional responses; Agata Kulesza is an abrasive and evasive presence in her first scenes in Ida as a cynical woman who is »

Red Oaks Comedy Pilot Teams Steven Soderbergh With David Gordon Green, Announces Cast

8 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Red Oaks seems like it could definitely be my type of jam. A comedy set in 1985 at a country club in New Jersey?  This has enough shades of Caddyshack to pique my interest.  Of course it doesn't hurt that the show will be produced by Steven Soderbergh or that the pilot will be directed by David Gordon Green (Eastbound & Down).  Red Oaks is gearing up to shoot as a pilot for Amazon (who are still implementing their voting policy when it comes to determining what gets picked up to series). And now the cast has been announced.  Red Oaks stars Craig Roberts (Submarine) as David Myers, a college student who’s an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club in suburban New Jersey in 1985.  Paul Reiser (Mad About You), Richard Kind (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Oliver Cooper (Californication), Gage Golightly (MTV’s Teen Wolf) and »

Premature Review

7 July 2014 8:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I can say without hesitation that Premature is the best movie about ejaculation-triggered time travel that I have ever seen. Sure, that compliment doesn’t really mean much, but you have to admire a flick that takes that ridiculous, gross set-up and really runs with it – all the while building an endearing cast of characters and handing each of them consistently raucous, over-the-top material. To put it another way, Premature is far, far better than a film mashing together Groundhog Day and American Pie has any right to be, and I commend it for that.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Dan Beers, making his feature directorial and screenwriting debut, for looking past the immature surface of Premature to find the belly laughs and ample heart hiding just underneath. Everyone remembers what a rough time high school was, and Beers captures that remarkably well, from the useless school nurses »

The iconic '80s star is joining Paul Reiser, Craig Roberts, Richard Kind and Oliver Cooper in "Red Oaks," a new Amazon pilot that will be programmed as part of the nascent streaming service's third pilot season.
