Miuccia Prada Was "Terrified" of "Awful" Devil Wears Prada

29 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

No desire to dress the devil! Fashion designer Miuccia Prada gave her two cents on the popular 2003 book The Devil Wears Prada and its big-screen adaptation in a new interview with Italian publication Corriere della Sera this week. Prada, 65, was fully aware of author Lauren Weisberger's fashion tale and the inclusion of her brand's name in the title. She was hardly a fan of the book, and was even more wary of the 2006 movie, which starred Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, and, Stanley [...] »

Denis Villeneuve: Blade Runner sequel "not an easy decision"

28 April 2015 4:01 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: The French-Canadian director, whose Sicario is set to premiere in Competition in Cannes, has paid tribute to the “master” Ridley Scott.

Speaking in an interview with John Hazelton in Screen and Telefilm Canada’s Cannes Special supplement due out in May, Villeneuve admits the prospect of tackling a Blade Runner sequel was intimidating.

“Let’s say it wasn’t an easy decision to make,” he said, “because I’m a massive Blade Runner fan, it’s one of my favourite movies.”

The director of Prisoners and Enemy added: “I was massively influenced, like a lot of people, by this movie. And Ridley Scott is a master.

“So I’m going there with a great amount of humility and a great amount of deep joy. And I know I can do it.”

The project is scheduled for a summer 2016 star and will star Ryan Gosling alongside Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as Rick Deckard several decades »

Sicario Director Denis Villeneuve Explains The Challenge Of Making A Female-Led Movie

27 April 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is no stranger to the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, having had many titles from his back catalogue screen there, his upcoming effort – Sicario – is something of a watershed, being his first feature-length film to be selected to screen in competition during the event. The film – about Mexican drug cartels – will have a wider release on September 18th, and stars Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro.

The most recent films from Villeneuve include the critically acclaimed Prisoners and Enemy, and the successful director recently spoke to The Montreal Gazette on hearing the announcement of the selection of Sicario, expressing confidence in his latest work.

“It’s my best film yet. It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film yet. I take total responsibility for it – whether people like it or not. I had absolute total freedom on the film, »

Denis Villeneuve Says 'Sicario' Is His "Best Film Yet," Reveals Backers Wanted Emily Blunt's Part Rewritten For A Man

27 April 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you were to ask anyone around The Playlist watercooler what their most anticipated film at the Cannes Film Festival is, you'd likely hear Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" crop up more than once. "Prisoners" and "Enemy" were very well admired around these parts (and of course, elsewhere too) and the director himself is feeling very confident about his latest work. “It’s my best film yet,” he said at a press conference earlier this month, following the announcement his film had made it into Cannes (via The Montreal Gazette). “It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film as well.” It's "...a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent,” he added, when speaking recently with The Guardian. Starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio del Toro, "Sicario" centers on a female cop (Blunt) and two male Delta Force rangers who cross from »

Cannes: Denis Villeneuve Says Drug War Film 'Sicario' Is "Very Dark" and "Quite Violent"

24 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Denis Villeneuve offered just a taste of what to expect for his latest in The Guardian on Friday. "Sicario," slang for hitman, stars Emily Blunt as an FBI agent and Josh Brolin as the CIA official who lead the charge against a horrific drug lord on the streets of Juarez, just outside El Paso, Texas. Tasked with doing the deed is Benicio del Toro's titular assassin. Villeneuve said: “a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent... It’s about the alienation of the cycles of violence, how at one point we are in those spirals of violence and ask ourselves, ‘Is there a solution?' My movie raises the question; it doesn’t give any answer.” It will be hard to avoid comparisons to Steven Soderbergh's powerful "Traffic," del Toro's 2001 best supporting actor winner that also dwelled in the far-reaching runoff of the Mexican-American drug trade.

The critical difference between 'Lip Sync Battle' and 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

22 April 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Lip Sync Battle," the Spike TV series based on the celebrity lip-sync duels from Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show," is officially renewed for a second season. Lip-syncing is always good for a silly viral moment, but let's not forget that there's a semi-serious art to doing it well. And while we're at it, let's point out that "RuPaul's Drag Race" is the real HQ for lip-sync sorcery on cable. The premise of "Lip Sync Battle" is that a bunch of celebrities acting like drunken karaoke acts is a riot. Sometimes the juxtaposition of a movie star and a pop song is very funny: Take, for instance, Paul Rudd's seriously impressive work with Tina Turner's "Better Be Good to Me" on "The Tonight Show." Not only did he memorize Turner's every spastic vocal moment, he also lived up to her grit with an impassioned performance. It was comedy, but »

Benicio Del Toro Is Ready For Action In First Image From Sicario

22 April 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that he’s been booked to helm a Blade Runner sequel that may star Ryan Gosling along with Harrison Ford, it’s fair to say that Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve has officially arrived. But the French-Canadian auteur has really been stunning critics ever since his Oscar-nominated breakout Incendies back in 2010, and the general public is just a little late to the party. Before he heads into blockbuster territory for that sequel, though, Villeneuve will unveil a smaller but also exciting project: drug trafficking thriller Sicario.

Lionsgate just unveiled the first official image from the film, which stars Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Jon Bernthal and Victor Garber. Honestly, that cast alone would be enough to get most cinephiles in line for a ticket, but what’s really exciting about Sicario (other than that it’s that rare actioner that’s led by a strong female character, a »

Chris Hemsworth Adds Some Real Rugged Handsomeness to The Huntsman Set

21 April 2015 8:27 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

In case you were wondering, yes, Chris Hemsworth is still ridiculously good looking. The hunky Hollywood star was spotted in all of his rugged glory while shooting scenes on set of The Huntsman in the United Kingdom yesterday. Dressed in full costume, the actor gave cameras a well-executed hands-on-the-hip pose while totally nailing the whole sun-in-the-eyes stare. Or maybe the sun was actually in his eyes. It seemed like a very bright day. Either way, Chris Hemsworth looks gooooood. Also spotted on set was his gorgeous co-star Jessica Chastain, who flashed an ear-to-ear smile while chatting with another castmate on set. The film, which also stars Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt, is a prequel to »

Sicario: Benicio Del Toro Takes Aim in First Image from Denis Villeneuve Actioner

18 April 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off the announcement that the film will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the first Sicario image from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming dramatic actioner. Penned by Taylor Sheridan, the story takes place near the U.S.-Mexico border and stars Emily Blunt as an idealistic FBI agent who is enlisted by members of a government task force (Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro) to take out a Mexican cartel boss. This is one of my most anticipated films of the year for a number of reasons. First off, female-led action films are rare, and Emily Blunt is incredible. Secondly, while I wasn’t blown away by Prisoners, I thought Villeneuve’s Enemy was superb. And thirdly, freaking Roger Deakins is the cinematographer, reuniting with Villeneuve after Prisoners. He’s simply the most masterful director of photography working today, and »

Was a J.Lo Cameo in Anna Kendrick’s ‘Booty’ Lip Sync Enough to Beat John Krasinski in a Dress?

17 April 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We're in week three of Spike TV's biggest hit ever, and Lip Sync Battle isn't losing any momentum. This episode brings executive producer John Krasinski in against little Anna Kendrick, which means Vulture is back again for our post-match analysis of who lip-synced it best. Was John Krasinski's cross-dressing performance as Tina Turner enough to beat Anna Kendrick? Roll the tapes!Battle 1: John Krasinski's "Bye Bye Bye" vs. Anna Kendrick's "Steal My Girl" Anna Kendrick knows how to build a performance and embody a character. You can see it even in this somewhat subdued performance of One Direction's "Steal My Girl." That said, the entire performance is really all about the joke that she's stealing Krasinski's wife Emily Blunt, which is fine, but the best way to dis someone in a lip-sync battle is to win it. Krasinski, meanwhile, hits allll the millennial nostalgia »

Of all the ridiculous teen-pop choreography from the Trl era, the puppet dancing from N'Sync's "Bye Bye Bye" video could be the most (in)famous.

Anna Kendrick Declares Her Love For John Krasinski's Wife on Lip Sync Battle

17 April 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It was battle of the boy bands in John Krasinski and Anna Kendrick's episode of Lip Sync Battle last night. While Anna made it all about John's wife, Emily Blunt, during her performance of One Direction's "Steal My Girl," John threw it back a few decades - complete with a microphone headset - and performed *Nsync's hit "Bye Bye Bye." While his dance moves were amazing in their own right, Anna managed to steal the show when she had a video montage of Emily play during her performance, which caused John to completely lose it, laughing as Anna ripped open her top to reveal a t-shirt with Emily's face on it. Check out the hilarious battle above, and then relive Anne Hathaway's headline-making "Wrecking Ball" performance from last week's episode. »
