Julia Roberts On Half-Sister's Death

Nearly three weeks later, Roberts, who was nominated for her turn in August: Osage County this year, opened up about learning of Mote’s untimely death. "It's just heartbreak," Roberts told the Wall Street Journal Magazine for its May issue. "It's only been 20 days. There aren't words to explain what any of us have been through in these last 20 days. It's hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead."

Watch: Mark Ruffalo’s Voice Is a Cure in ‘The Normal Heart’ Trailer

19 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The promos for Ryan Murphy’s HBO drama keeping getting more and more powerful.

The first full trailer shows Mark Ruffalo, his onscreen partner Matt Bomer and Julia Roberts fight to raise awareness about the AIDS epidemic in New York City in the early 1980s. The pic follows gay activists and the medical community as they try to expose the truth about the crisis. At one point, Ruffalo’s character accuses the government of a conspiracy to murder all gay men.

“To win a war, you have to start one,” Ruffalo says in the clip.

Larry Kramer himself scripted the TV adaptation of his hit 1985 Tony-winning off-Broadway play. The HBO movie, which also star Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Alfred Molina, will air on May 25. Jonathan Groff, the star of another HBO program, “Looking,” also makes an appearance in the telefilm.

HBO is already eyeing a sequel that would follow »

'The Normal Heart' Trailer: Mark Ruffalo Speaks Out (Video)

19 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A big mouth isn't always a problem; sometimes, it can be the solution.

That's the theme running through the trailer for the upcoming HBO film, "The Normal Heart." Directed by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy from a play by Larry Kramer, the movie chronicles the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the '80s.

"The Normal Heart" covers a similar timeframe as the Oscar-nominated "Dallas Buyers Club," but focuses on a gay man (Mark Ruffalo) who becomes an activist. He teams up with a doctor (Julia Roberts) to raise awareness and lobby politicians to care about.

Ruffalo is all fire and passion, while Roberts is the cool, no-nonsense physician. And they're just two members of a sterling cast, which also includes Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons. We have a feeling this will rake in the awards come Emmy time.

"The Normal Heart" premieres May 25 on HBO.

Watch The Trailer For HBO Films TV Drama Feature ‘The Normal Heart’

18 April 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Last Year, HBO Films brought us the superb Behind The Candelabra, a film that was released theatrically in the UK, and one that went on to be nominated for a BAFTA. In 2014, the celebrated cable network is releasing Ryan Murphy’s TV movie The Normal Heart, which will almost certainly get a cinema bow overseas as well, and possibly grab some awards attention come next year too.

The film, written by Larry Kramer, based on his Tony award winning play of the same name, tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and the gay activist (played by Mark Ruffalo), who attempts to raise awareness of it.

Ruffalo joins Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts in the superb cast of this film, Murphy’s first feature since the Roberts vehicle Eat, Pray, Love.

Full Trailer for Ryan Murphy’s The Normal Heart Starring Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch, and Julia Roberts

18 April 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has released a new, full-length The Normal Heart trailer for director Ryan Murphy’s (Glee, American Horror Story) adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Larry Kramer stage play.  The film follows the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and it looks at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.  Though Murphy is a bit hit and miss (his last two films were Running with Scissors and Eat, Pray, Love), I’m encouraged by The Normal Heart’s stellar ensemble cast and the fact that Kramer penned the screenplay.  Mark Ruffalo and Taylor Kitsch, in particular, look to be standouts, and the tone feels reminiscent of the heartwrenching documentary How to Survive a Plague, in which Kramer plays an integral role.

Watch: New Trailer For HBO's 'The Normal Heart' With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Battles The Establishment

18 April 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Okay, so "The Normal Heart" didn't make the Cannes Film Festival lineup like I figured it would, but that doesn't mean we're not putting this one on our watch list for next month. A new trailer is here to remind you why you might want to tune into HBO in May to watch something other than "Game Of Thrones."  Directed by Ryan Murphy, starring Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons, and based on the play by Larry Kramer, the film chronciles the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, with doctors and activists trying to raise awareness about the disease, fighting against an indifferent medical community and politicians who won't come near the cause. Potent stuff, and it'll be a tricky balance to get across the drama without tipping too far into histrionics. But this is the kind of »

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Did Seth Rogen play it too safe? -- Vote

14 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Perhaps Seth Rogen’s latest Saturday Night Live episode wasn’t especially inspired: it opened with the requisite weed jokes, made fun of his oft-imitated laugh, and leaned on some unnecessary celebrity cameos. But if you love Rogen’s slacker comedy, maybe that was exactly what you tuned in for. At least he didn’t tap dance or juggle torches to prove that he’s not just a funny guy.

Voters in our ongoing third annual Mr. Saturday Night contest will have to decide whether Rogen played it too safe for a guy who was hosting for the third time, »

What Films Will Show Up at the 2014 Cannes Film Festivalc

14 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This Thursday, April 17, the complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival line-up will be announced and while this will be my first year since 2010 that I won't be in attendance I still can't help but be curious and excited. We know Grace of Monaco will serve as the opener and have also learned in the last 48 hours Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice won't be in attendance, which eliminates two of the potentially major entrants, but what's leftc It's more or less confirmed David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars will be in the line-up. Other very likely candidates include Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman and The Rover starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce. I expect The Rover will be a Director's Fortnight entrant. Other strong competitors with a larger amount of audience awareness include Xavier Dolan's Mommy, »
