Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Tourette syndrome has gotten the Hollywood spotlight from stars like Amy Poehler in “Deuce Bigalow,” Bill Murray in “What About Bob?” and Elle Fanning in “Phoebe in Wonderland.” Media representation of the tic disorder has ranged from irreverently comedic to sweetly tragic. The new movie “The Road Within,” which opens in theaters Friday, aims for a bit of both – funny but also sweet and touching and respectful of those who have Tourette’s. In the film, 27-year-old Irish actor Robert Sheehan (“Misfits,” “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”) plays Vincent, a teen dealing with Tourette syndrome following the death of his mother. He moves into a clinic, where he meets Marie (Zoe Kravitz), a girl with an eating disorder, and Alex (Dev Patel), a boy with obsessive-compulsive impulses. When the three teens steal their doctor’s car and escape the clinic, they embark on a road trip full of rebellious antics, »

It's been 14 years since Dakota Fanning stole our hearts in "I Am Sam," but now, she finally has come to terms with her child star past. The 21-year-old star graces the cover of the May issue of Nylon, where she opens up about how it feels to be seen as a child actor, even though she's an adult. "I've made my peace with the fact that there will be some people who, for the rest of my life, will believe I'm, like, 9 years old," she tells the mag. "I have this joke that I'm literally going to be 35, married, and pregnant and people are still going to say, 'Oh my god, you grew up so fast! I can't believe it!'" "And yeah, sometimes when you're 21 years old and people are still saying that, you just want to rip your hair out. But I'm Ok with it," she says. "I know who I am. »

With every new casting announcement on Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, we learn a little more of its deranged premise. A horror set in the fashion world, its early descriptions lend it an edge of Lynch via way of Cronenberg. In short, it’s setting itself up to be a visual delight that will shake your morals loose at the same time.
Refn has himself described it as a “horror film about vicious beauty” and reports from various outlets indicate that it’s set to focus on “a group of supermodels going to extremes in their attempts to keep looking the way they do,” which will include the use of “voodoo and cannibalism.” Needless to say, The Neon Demon won’t receive a PG-13 rating based on those cultish activities its starry cast will likely get mixed up in. That ensemble so far includes Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, »

Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon has teamed up with the SundanceNow Doc Club as a guest curator to share with audiences, eight of her favourite documentaries. Also included in the program are two documentaries, Storied Streets and Waiting For Mamu, which are not only executive produced by Sarandon but have also never been released before on subscription VOD.
‘When I watch a doc, at least once, I want my head to explode and my heart to feel. I want to see the world differently. Know something I didn’t know before. Engage me but most of all surprise me’.
‘I appreciate a doc when it encourages you to be the protagonist in your own life or when it makes you itch to solve a problem, fight for justice. Others celebrate life and the human spirit. Doesn’t get much better than this’.
Each of the eight films selected come with »

In the 15 plus years that filmmaker John Cameron Mitchell has been on the scene, he’s only made three feature-length films, but at least one of them, the queercore punk rock musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” has grown iconic enough to become a Broadway play (the movie started as an off-Broadway play 17 years ago). While 2010’s deeply underrated “Rabbit Hole” was underseen and underloved (though Nicole Kidman did earn an Oscar nomination for her performance), you can thank it for essentially launching Miles Tellers' career (he wouldn’t catch on for a few years, but casting directors took note). Five years on, Cameron has another film finally in the works, a high concept sci-fi comedy called “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” a long developing adaptation of Neil Gaiman's short story which will star Elle Fanning. Mitchell has been delayed in working on the picture for a »

I love Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher, Drive, Only God Forgives) and, given the amount of neon he's been putting in his movies recently, I can't wait to check out the color palette on his female driven horror movie, The Neon Demon. That film started shooting today in Los Angeles and is definitely one of my most anticipated pictures of 2016. And now we know a little bit more about the plot, which certainly sounds more incident driven than the gorgeous Only God Forgives. [caption id="attachment_417218" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Radius/TWC.[/caption] The film stars Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Desmond Harrington, Christina Hendricks, and Keanu Reeves. It is being produced by Space Rocket Nation's Lene Borglum in association with Wild Bunch and Gaumont.

Nicolas Winding Refn's Space Rocket Nation announced today the start of production in Los Angeles on the writer/director's "The Neon Demon," starring an uber-cool cast including Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Desmond Harrington, Christina Hendricks, and Keanu Reeves. Without further ado, here's the official synopsis: "When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has." Refn cowrote this La-set, female-led horror film with Mary Laws. Refn dipped into genre moviemaking before with his kickass, po-mo noir "Drive," but "Neon Demon" marks the director's first leap into true horror movie terrain.

The cameras have already started to roll on Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest stab at the dark heart of the world. He’s currently conjuring up female-led horror movie The Neon Demon, and has just added Desmond Harrington to the ensemble.Elle Fanning leads a cast that also includes Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves in the story that finds aspiring model Jesse (Fanning) moving to the City Of Angels only to find that it hides some very dark terrors. In short, “Her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women that will do anything to take what she has.” Which, weirdly, is paraphrased from a slogan on one of the greeting signs when you land at Lax.“I very much look forward to the odyssey I’ll be taking with all these wonderful actresses (and a few »
