“These are some initial passes done for the big baddie, Ultron. What a crazy fun project to work on,” states Park. “I don’t get to do the more robotic designs that often here given our resident robot experts in Ryan Meinerding, Phil Saunders, along with Josh Nizzi and Josh Herman.

Alexandra Cousteau off Mallorca for Oceana
In 2014, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation gave a grant of three million dollars "to support Oceana’s efforts to win real policy change and protection for vital habitats and species throughout the Pacific and Arctic Oceans.” DiCaprio is also the executive producer of Orlando von Einsiedel's Oscar nominated Virunga.

Last week marked an important landmark in the movement for marriage equality and the lives of Lgbtqia Americans, but the entertainment industry has been working for longer than that to increase the amount of queer characters in movies and television.
On Amazon, there’s Transparent, about a father (Jeffrey Tambor) who comes out as trans to her adult children. On Netflix, prison dramedy Orange is the New Black stars trans actress Laverne Cox as Sophia Burset, a trans inmate whose characterization extends to far more than just that identifier. Benedict Cumberbatch earned an Oscar nod last year playing gay code-breaker Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, and that Best Actor race’s victor, Eddie Redmayne, will take on the part of transitioning painter Einar Wegener in The Danish Girl.

Polished and shiny, Andrew Bujalski's Results stands in stark visual contrast to the filmmaker's previous stylistic indulgence, Computer Chess. Shot in murky black and white with a primitive camera, Computer Chess focused on programmers at the dawn of the personal computer era in 1984. Shot with crystal-clear digital precision, Results fixes its eye on the twilight of the personal fitness era, i.e. the modern day. It's a three-hander about Trevor (Guy Pearce), the ambitious owner of a fitness studio; Kat (Cobie Smulders), a fiercely-dedicated physical trainer; and Danny (Kevin Corrigan), an out-of-shape, newly-wealthy customer. Each is self-absorbed to an alarming degree: Trevor is fixated on opening a new, larger studio; Kat and Danny are both unhappy and angry, without knowing how to deal with their...

We now "Scandal" star Kerry Washington wears a politico under pressure well, and sure enough, the 2015 Emmy contender will once again go full feminist for HBO's "Confirmation" as Anita Hill. Currently shooting in Atlanta, the film is directed by Rick Famuyiwa, the breakout indie behind this year's hip-hop-addled Sundance comedy "Dope." "Confirmation" centers on the widely publicized 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings that brought Hill to prominence, and the country to a standstill about how we think about sexual harassment, victims' rights and race. The film is penned by Oscar-nominated "Erin Brockovich" scribe Susannah Grant. Wendell Pierce, Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson, Erika Christensen and Cobie Smulders round out the cast. Meanwhile, writers on Shonda Rhimes' "Scandal" are busily scribbling away on a fifth season of the hit political drama for ABC.

HBO has released our first on-set look at Kerry Washington as Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill, who, in 1991, gave testimony that accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment while she was working for him, derailing his ascension to the highest court in the land. It's the subject of Rick Famuyiwa's upcoming Confirmation, in which Thomas will be played by the great Wendell Pierce, who has a long history with HBO in both The Wire and the superb post-Katrina drama Treme. I wouldn't exactly expect as lovable personages as his beleaguered Baltimore detective, Bunk, or the Trombone-blowing Antoine Batiste in his depiction of the famously flippant Thomas, however. [caption id="attachment_374901" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Open Road Films[/caption] The film, written by Erin Brockovich and In Her Shoes scribe Susannah Grant, will also serve as Famuyiwa's follow-up to his enjoyable, enlivening Dope, which hits theaters in a limited release this coming weekend. »

Kerry Washington looks spot on as Anita Hill in the first image released by HBO for their upcoming film “Confirmation.” Hill was called to testify at Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ 1991 Senate confirmation hearing when it was revealed she had accused him of sexual harassment while he was her supervisor years earlier. The film will focus on the confirmation hearings and the effect they had on Hill and the country at large. In addition to Washington, the film stars “How I Met Your Mother” alum and “Avengers” star Cobie Smulders as Harriet Grant and “The Wire” star Wendell Pierce as Clarence Thomas. »

Looking good, Cobie Smulders! Just under six months since giving birth to her and hubby Taran Killam's second child, the 33-year-old How I Met Your Mother actress stepped out in NYC Sunday looking super-slim and sexy with a hint of side boob. The hot Hollywood mama skipped a bra and opted for a simple black romper with sunglasses and sandals for her outing yesterday. The brunette beauty's figure looked very toned and slim, proving she's already shed all of that pregnancy weight. Smulders looked happy and relaxed as she strolled around the Big Apple sans her other half and their kids. Smulders and Killam welcomed their second child back in January. They are already parents to 5-year-old daughter »
Even with as much planning as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some scenes end up on the editing room floor…
This film has spoilers for every film in the Marvel cinematic universe.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe… if you’ve just clicked into this article, it’s likely that you need little reminding of how much it changed the landscape of Hollywood. But that won’t stop us recapping for continuity’s sake. Heck, it’s what Kevin Feige would want.
It began in 2008, then, with the landmark casting of Robert Downey Jnr as Tony Stark. It’s sometimes hard to remember how much a risk that was at the time, but heck did it pay off. The movie, directed by Jon Favreau, was strong, and a huge hit. And the notion of a post-credits sting was introduced. And it was a big one, too – Samuel L Jackson namedropping the Avengers Initiative. »
Having beaten out Frozen and Iron Man 3 to become the sixth highest grossing film of all-time, Avengers: Age of Ultron has now beaten Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 to take the fifth spot.
The movie added another $6 million domestically over the weekend to bring its total up to $1.3 billion worldwide. That puts it in fifth place behind fellow 2015 release Furious 7 ($1.5 billion), Marvel’s The Avengers ($1.5 billion), Titanic ($2.1 billion) and Avatar ($2.7 billion). It seems unlikely now that Avengers: Age of Ultron will catch up with Furious 7 or its predecessor, but being the fifth biggest movie of all-time is hardly something to complain about.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is out now and sees Joss Whedon directing a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Don Cheadle (War »
