Why Gay Movie Stars Are Staying Locked in the Closet

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a vast and growing list of prominent gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender media and entertainment figures — just don’t count movie stars among them.

Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Caitlyn Jenner and Neil Patrick Harris have kicked open the closet door with little to no damage to their careers. In some cases, they’ve found themselves more in demand after revealing their sexual preferences or gender identification.

Yet there’s one glass ceiling that remains stubbornly resistant to cracks.

No A-list film actor has yet to come out publicly while at the pinnacle of his or her career. Sure, Jodie Foster gave an elliptical Golden Globes speech about being a lesbian, and out actors Ian McKellen and Zachary Quinto helped anchor the “X-Men” and “Lord of the Rings” series, and the rebooted “Star Trek” films, respectively. Yet despite their prodigious talents, none of them has the power to »

‘The Cartel,’ ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ Show Futility of War on Drugs

28 June 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

More than a decade after Steven Soderbergh’s “Traffic” took on U.S. drug policy, popular culture is once again turning a jaundiced eye toward the government’s failed efforts to stanch the flow of narcotics.

On the bigscreen, the documentary “Cartel Land” and the thriller “Escobar: Paradise Lost” present parallel stories of vigilantism and criminality, all of it fueled by America’s insatiable appetite for marajuana, cocaine, heroin and other illicit pleasures.

In book stores, Don Winslow, the crack novelist behind “Savages,” is criss-crossing the porous border between Mexico and the U.S. to examine the intractable standoff between cops and drug barons in “The Cartel.” The picture that emerges in each of these works is of rampant lawlessness, shocking violence and dysfunctional policies that have done nothing to reduce illegal drug consumption.

“The war on drugs is a disaster,” Winslow told Variety. “For 45 years we’ve been doing »

Benicio Del Toro and Josh Hutcherson: The Hollywood Interview

Benicio Del Toro and Josh Hutcherson Find Paradise Lost in Escobar

By Alex Simon

Most people know Paradise Lost as the title of John Milton’s epic poem, first published in 1667, concerning the Biblical story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Milton's purpose, stated in Book I, is to "justify the ways of God to men.” With this metaphor in mind, writer/director Andrea De Stefano has fashioned a new piece of historical fiction, Escobar: Paradise Lost, putting a wide-eyed Canadian tourist named Nick (Josh Hutcherson) who has traveled to 1988-era Colombia looking for surf, sand and fun with his brother (Brady Corbet) at the story's center. After falling hard for a local beauty (Claudia Traisac), Nick is introduced to her favorite uncle, one Pablo Escobar (Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro), who takes »

Exclusive Video Interview: Benicio Del Toro And Josh Hutcherson Talk Escobar: Paradise Lost

26 June 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Opening in theatres this week is the explosive new thriller, Escobar: Paradise Lost, which stars Benicio Del Toro as the titular drug lord and Josh Hutcherson as a young man who becomes romantically involved with his niece. Suffice to say, things take a dark turn from there.

Full of dread and suspense, not to mention a thrilling final act, Escobar: Paradise Lost first premiered back at the Toronto International Film Festival to mostly solid reviews, with our own Jordan Adler concluding the following about it:

Escobar: Paradise Lost benefits from a suspenseful final act and a menacing Benicio del Toro.

Last week at the film’s Los Angeles press day, we sat down with both Hutcherson and Del Toro to discuss the captivating new movie and how they prepared for their roles in it. During the course of our interview, they spoke about their pre-conceived notions of Pablo Escobar, the »

Josh Hutcherson on 'Escobar' and watching people watch his movies on a plane

26 June 2015 4:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's sort of crazy to think that Josh Hutcherson is still only 22-year-old.  The Kentucky native has already been a centerpiece of two major studio franchises ("Journey" and "The Hunger Games"), appeared in a Best Picture nominee ("The Kids Are All Right"), starred in an unnecessary remake ("Red Dawn"), voiced a major character in an animated release ("Epic") and starred in two classic family films ("Bridge to Terabithia" and "Zathura").  His four-year journey as Peeta comes to an end this November, but Hutcherson is actually spreading his wings into his first real adult role this weekend with "Escobar: Paradise Lost." Directed by first-timer Andrea Di Stefano, "Escobar" centers on a Canadian surf boarder (Hutcherson) who falls for one of the nieces of the notorious Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro). While the movie's storyline is fiction it was inspired by the tale of a young Italian who made »

Movie Review: Escobar: Paradise Lost Could Have Used More Escobar

26 June 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There’s a good idea floating around somewhere inside Escobar: Paradise Lost. This thriller, about a young Canadian surfer who finds himself tight with infamous Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, starts before Escobar had become Public Enemy No. 1 in his own country, back when he was a popular politician. Showing the allure and gradual corruption of power through the eyes of a third party — sort of a mixture of The Great Gatsby and Scarface — is a solid conceit. But Andrea Di Stefano’s underbaked film doesn’t quite know what to do with it.Josh Hutcherson is Nick, a young man surfing the waves of Colombia’s beaches with his brother Dylan (Brady Corbet) when he meets the beautiful, energetic Maria (Claudia Traisac). She, it turns out, is the niece of Pablo Escobar (Benicio del Toro), a popular figure who lives on a sprawling hacienda and gives away just »

Review: 'Escobar: Paradise Lost' Starring Benicio del Toro And Josh Hutcherson Is A Lost Opportunity

25 June 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You know that deeply anxious expression that Josh Hutcherson wears throughout "The Hunger Games" movies? Well, if you’re a fan of his trademark chagrined countenance, you get a whole lot more of it in "Escobar: Paradise Lost," where his character has a pretty good reason for near-constant concern. In this potboiler, Hutcherson’s a white boy (obviously) who’s pledged to marry into the family of famed Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. What, he worry? At some point you may wonder why we’ve devoted an entire first paragraph to Josh Hutcherson when the title character is played by Benicio freaking del Toro, the sort of dream casting that would seem to be a lede that shouldn’t be buried. Unfortunately, Escobar is a supporting character in his own movie, a situation that brings to mind "The Last King of Scotland," which enlisted Forest Whitaker to play Idi Amin »

Escobar: Paradise Lost | Review

Drug War Diaries: Di Stefano’s Peripheral Take on Famed Drug Lord’s Activities

For those wishing to learn much of anything about famed Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, the logical place to start is not with Andrea Di Stefano’s feature directorial debut, Escobar: Paradise Lost, a starry depiction relegating its titular drug titan to the sidelines. True, there are aspects worthy of admiration, thanks mostly to moments with a paunchy Benicio Del Toro as the notorious “King of Cocaine.” But Di Stefano chooses to focus on the perspective of a token white outsider, presented in a formula used to design mainstream comedies—idealistic young man meets sexy young woman, inadvertently leading to his involvement with her ‘kooky’ familial environment.

In 1991, Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar (Del Toro) has resigned himself to the fact he must turn himself into authorities. He rallies a small crew together, including nephew-in-law Nick »

Josh Hutcherson's Bonnaroo Survival Plan Was ... Kinda Weird - MTV

23 June 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

Josh Hutcherson threw food at people and then ran away at Bonnaroo — real or not real? Real. Or so he says. And District 12 posterboy Peeta Mellark wouldn’t just say stuff for the sake of the cameras, would he? Thursday (June 18), the “Hunger Games” star appeared on TBS’ “Conan” and revealed that he put together a gameplan to stay incognito during his recent trip to Bonnaroo Music Festival. Because starring as the ultra artsy and lovable — at least, until “Mockingjay – Part 1″ turned him into a stark raving loon — Mr. Mellark is a quick recipe for intense fandemonium. And as much as he loves being the subject of a thousand Team Peeta GIFs, even Josh needs a break from the arena every now and again. »

Best of Late Night TV: Colin Farrell's Confession and Taylor Schilling's Sex Accident

18 June 2015 11:51 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"True Detective's" second season starts this Sunday on HBO, so obviously the cast is making the rounds on Late Night. You know what that means: Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn stopped by "The Tonight Show," and Jimmy Fallon had them sit down for a game of True Confessions (basically Two Truths and a Lie, only a little different). What did we learn? For starters, Colin Farrell was a murder suspect. Oh....

Calling all "Orange Is The New Black" fans! Taylor Schilling stopped by "Late Night" to talk about getting injured during a sex scene. Apparently she got "very excited," took her shirt off, and scratched her face. Gives »
