The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an »

Santa Barbara fests' Virtuosos honorees include Boseman, Slate, Oyelowo

12 December 2014 3:59 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you thought the recent Golden Globes nominations slighted some of the better performances this year, allow the Santa Barbara International Film Festival to shine its spotlight on some of the underdogs (along with a few major contenders we can’t cynically roll our eyes at — they’re just too lovable).  Sbiff announced in a press release Friday afternoon that it would continue its tradition of honoring the year’s standout performers by presenting The 2015 Virtuosos Award to Chadwick Boseman ("Get on Up"), Ellar Coltrane ("Boyhood"), Logan Lerman ("Fury"), David Oyelowo ("Selma"), Rosamund Pike ("Gone Girl"), J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") and Jenny Slate ("Obvious Child"). “These are seven exemplary performers that provide us with undeniable evidence that 2014 was a dynamic year in acting," festival director Roger Durling said in a statement. If you were thinking of contending with Sbiff’s choices, allow them to defend the picks in their own words: »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Eyes 'Vampire Diaries' Star as Storm?

12 December 2014 11:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in early November, a number of actresses and actors were reportedly on a short list to play younger versions of Jean Grey and Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse. 20th Century Fox also plans on recasting Storm in this latest mutant adventure, but until now, we haven't heard that anyone was up for the role. Today, MoviePilot claims, in what might be nothing more than pure speculation, that The Vampire Diaries star Katerina 'Kat' Graham is up for the role.

Halle Berry originated the role of Ororo Munroe, better known as Storm, in the original 2000 X-Men, and went onto reprise the character in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and this past summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now, she is being replaced by a younger actor, as the story takes place in the 1980s. At this time, the studio has not commented on this potential casting, and this »

Who Would You Vote For as "Best Young Actor/Actress"?

7 December 2014 2:25 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Each year when my Bfca ballot arrives I stop in my tracks, stumped, when I get to "Young Performer". Categories that aren't Oscar correlative are often trickier.

Oh dear. How uneasy I feel..."

That's not because you're free of predicting (anyone trying to predict with their own ballot really ought to find a new profession -- criticism: ur not doing it right) but because it's a subsection of acting you probably haven't been discussing at all. You suddenly remember that you need to have been considering it with as much seriousness as you have made your other selections.

I imagine that Ellar Coltrane, the now 20 year old star of Boyhood, will be tough to beat since this category is for the 21 and under set. But even if the category were adjusted downward to 17 and younger (which we strongly support as a rule change -because it's always weird when an adult »

5 December 2014 4:06 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Famke Janssen has described the recasting of Jean Grey as "bittersweet".

The Hemlock Grove actress spoke about the casting of a young version of her character in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Chloe Grace Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are reportedly testing to play the founding X-Men member.

"I know all of them, of course. I love Elle Fanning, but I would see about this much resemblance," Janssen told MTV, pinching her fingers together.

"Well, maybe with a red wig or whatever. Interesting.

"It is a little bitter sweet, but I've seen what they've done with the younger and older Magneto and Professor X... I think I'm in good company," she continued.

20th Century Fox is believed to be recasting younger versions of Grey, Cyclops and Storm.

Bryan Singer will direct the film, which will star Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Oscar Isaac.

X-men: Famke Janssen Comments On New 'Jean Grey' Potentials

4 December 2014 6:15 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As we know, Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Carrie) Elle Fanning (Super 8, Maleficent) and Hailee Steinfeld (Ender's Game, True Grit) are the three actresses (that we've been made aware of so far) in line to play the younger version of telepathic mutant Jean Grey in the next installment in the X-franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse. Whoever lands the role will have their work cut out to follow the stunning Famke Janssen, who has done a fine job as the character in 5 of the previous films. When MTV asked the actress if she was aware of who's in the running, she says she's heard of all of them but, in Fanning's case particularly, doesn't see much of a resemblance. Janssen also says it's a little bittersweet knowing that she's being replaced in the role, but that maybe she could return and act alongside whoever is cast someday. Well, that worked in Days Of »

Making ‘The Boxtrolls:’ “Like 18 Months Of Opening Nights” – The Contenders

26 November 2014 10:08 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Boxtrolls producer Travis Knight (ParaNorman, Coraline) and director Anthony Stacchi (Open Season) talk with Deadline’s Pete Hammond about the challenges and joys of stop-motion animation, a creation process nearly as old (and beloved) as cinema itself, in this video from Deadline’s recent Oscar showcase, The Contenders.

Actually making a film with the stop-motion process, however, can be incredibly stressful, says Stacchi. It’s like ” 18 months of opening nights with no rehearsals.”

The voice cast includes a number of notables, including Ben Kingsley, Tracy Morgan, Elle Fanning, James Urbaniak, Toni Collette and Simon Pegg (plus uncredited work by Mr. SpongeBob SquarePants (and Adventure Time Ice King) himself, Tom Kenny).

Stacchi directed the film with Graham Annable, from a script by Irena Brignull and Adam Pava, from Alan Snow’s novel Here Be Monsters! The movie was produced by Knight and David Bleiman Ichioka. It has grossed $105.7 million worldwide since its Sept. »

With Jennifer Lawrence doing the promotional rounds for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, it’s inevitable that the actress will be fielding questions about her upcoming role in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during a chat with IGN the actress has briefly spoken about where we’ll find her character Mystique in the mutant superhero sequel:

20 November 2014 9:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is little we know about 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse, except that it will close out the trilogy featuring the younger characters from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and that it will be set in the 1980s. While promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Jennifer Lawrence revealed in an interview with IGN that her character Mystique should be in hiding, following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

"She's very complex. She's a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to her opposite race. I don't really know where she's going to go. I've had a few conversations about where we'll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere."

Naomi Watts' Chocolate Mustache Makes Her Look Like Charlie Chaplin and...Well, You Know

19 November 2014 6:28 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Naomi Watts suffered an eating malfunction. The actress was spotted walking around the set of her upcoming film Three Generations with chocolate on her face after enjoying a surely delicious chocolate chip cookie. Whether it's unclear if the sweet mustache was on purpose for the film or just a mishap while snacking between takes, we can't help but notice that she ended up channeling Charlie Chaplin and, um, you know...that other guy that we just won't mention (because eating chocolate chip cookies is meant to be a happy occasion and we don't want to be the buzz kill of this tasty party). In the film, Watt's plays the mother of Elle Fanning, who is portraying a transgender teen »
