22 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Anne Hathaway's definitely noticing a change in her career.   The Oscar-winning actress covers the October issue of Glamour U.K., where she opens up about ageism in Hollywood.  Hathaway -- who looks stunning on the cover wearing a chic shag coat with her hair styled in wet tousled waves -- says that she's definitely felt some growing pains when it comes to landing gigs.  "I can't complain about it because I benefitted from it," she confesses. "When I was in my early twenties, parts would be written for women in their fifties and I would get them. And now I'm in my early thirties and I'm like, 'Why did that 24 year old get that part?'

‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Is Fall’s Most Anticipated Movie (Survey)

3 September 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Moviegoers are eagerly anticipating Katniss Everdeen’s last act.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2,” the final film in the popular series, is the most anticipated fall movie, according to a recent survey by Fandango. That distinction comes with a big caveat. The online ticketer polled 1,000 moviegoers on the films they’re most excited to see between September and November, but that excluded a certain blockbuster-to-be because “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” doesn’t hit theaters until December.

The two most recent “Hunger Games” sequels topped Fandango’s list of most anticipated fall releases, making this the third consecutive year it’s topped charts. The first “Hunger Games” was released in March of 2012.

The last “Hunger Games” attracted 36% of the vote. The second and third most anticipated films were the latest James Bond mission, “Spectre,” which 26% of respondents picked, and the Ridley Scott and Matt Damon collaboration, “The Martian, »

Exhilarating Sicario Clip Sees Emily Blunt Thrust Into The Line Of Fire

3 September 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate’s barrage of promotional material for Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming narcotics thriller Sicario continues today with an all-new featurette and clip, with the later pitting Emily Blunt into the line of fire as a rookie and idealistic FBI agent.

Layering on the tense anxiety gleaned from trailers past, if footage from Villeneuve’s cartel drama fails to get your pulse pounding we’re not sure what will. Assuming the role of a newbie enforcer Kate Macer, Blunt’s character is recruited by an elite governmental squad specifically designed to be the best in the business when it comes to handling drug problems in and around the Mexican border, be that breaching and clearing safe houses or stalking a potential kingpin.

Alongside Blunt for the actioner is Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro, who star as the morally questionable driving forces behind the task force. It’s Del Toro’s »
