A number of celebrities had huge problems with the unfortunate Sony hack. Channing Tatum looked a little silly in leaked emails. Angelina Jolie came off as bratty. But Charlize Theron didn.t sit back and let the hack damage her career. Reportedly, she got aggressive and used the hack to get paid. Charlize Theron found herself in an unusual spot as Universal tried to get most of the band back together for a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. Snow White herself, Kristen Stewart, wasn.t being asked back. But the studio wanted original Huntsman Chris Hemsworth and Theron.s wicked witch to reprise their roles. Only, thanks to leaked information, Theron and her camp learned that, via a report on Fusion, that there existed a significant gap between the wages paid to her male co-star. Studio 360 now reports that Theron and her team demanded that she be paid »
Ah, yes. Lobbying for a role. It's a time honored tradition with hit-or-miss results. As fans, we've seen high-profile suggestions be taken- like the seemingly casual way that Channing Tatum got Gambit by just mentioning that he'd love to do it. We've also seen people push hard for roles, but never be given a shot (sorry, Sean Young!). Which brings us to this weekend's buzz surrounding Tyrese Gibson. The Fast & Furious series star is currently using social media to campaign for the role of John Stewart in a Green Lantern reboot.
The action star, and former model, took to his Facebook and Instagram pages to post the following images:
20|20 "I am fully committed to suiting up for this adventure" - @Tyrese #Gl "In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, Beware my power, Green Lantern's light!!!

His new vengeance-flavoured Western might be called The Hateful Eight, but Quentin Tarantino knows he needs more than eight people to fill the ensemble. As the cameras start to roll in Colorado, the director has added Lee Horsley, Craig Stark and Belinda Owino to the cast.Qt’s latest is set roughly a decade after the American Civil War and finds an eclectic group of law keepers, outlaws, mercenaries, bounty hunters and fugitives holed up in a stagecoach waypoint when a massive snowstorm hits the area. Soon, the two men transporting a female prisoner across the country start to wonder if they’ll actually make it out alive...The main cast includes a blend of Tarantino old hands and those new to his films, with Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Michael Madsen and Channing Tatum on the roster alongside James Parks and Zoe Bell. »
Especially when it comes to big-budget genre blockbusters, hype has become an inseparable part of movie culture. Trailers, teasers and teasers for trailers, along with a steady drip-feed of news, rumors and inside reports, all these are well-handled tools in Hollywood’s ever-increasing mastery of getting you primed and ready to slap down your money. Add the fact that more and more Hollywood blockbusters are based off beloved properties or tied to ongoing series and yearly top-ten lists of the most anticipated blockbusters or summer movies of the year can tend to look a bit samey. Oh really, you’re excited for Star Wars Episode 7? Well of course you are, it’s Star Wars Episode 7. Saying you’re excited to see it is like saying you enjoy oxygen or puppydog kisses.
Most of the most anticipated movies of the year, quite frankly, don’t need any more hype than they already have. »

Over the past decade, we've seen the rise of the bromance, mostly popularized by Seth Rogen and James Franco with films like Pineapple Express and The Interview, or even Jonah Hill with Michael Cera and Channing Tatum in Superbad and 21 Jump Street repectively. But the new indie The D-Train starring Jack Black and James Marsden takes the bromantic comedy to a whole new level, and it makes for an absolutely hilarious and wild ride. If you want to keep aspects of this comedy in the dark (which I recommend), then stop reading after the fourth paragraph and then just come back for the final paragraph. Dan Landsman (Black) is one of those guys who just tries too hard, and it really gets on the nerves of most people, especially those on the high school alumni committee who are having trouble rounding up people to attend the 20-year reunion. Dan keeps giving himself nicknames like D-Fresh, »

It has been a long and twisty road to principal photography on The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino’s latest foray into the western genre. First Gawker leaked the script, resulting in the filing of a lawsuit and Tarantino’s proclamation that he did not intend to make the film. What followed was a single public reading of the script, the lawsuit being dropped, and, finally, Tarantino’s announcement that he would make the movie after all. Now the day is finally here, as The Weinstein Company announces that the director has begun filming on The Hateful Eight.
The Hateful Eight takes place in post-Civil War Wyoming and follows a group of eight people who get trapped during a blizzard. Taking refuge from the storm at a haberdashery in a mountain pass, the group are soon involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. We can expect plenty of the good old Tarantino dialogue, »

The Weinstein Company says that "The Hateful Eight," the ninth film from writer/director Quentin Tarantino, has officially begun filming in rocky Telluride, Colorado—though the film is set in Wyoming a few years after the Civil War. Starring Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bechir and Walton Goggins, the Western follows a group of stagecoach travelers trapped after a blizzard sends them off course. Amongst the crew are two bounty hunters and a rogue Confederate soldier. New talent has jumped aboard, however, including the excellent Gene Jones—who was stunningly good as a Jim Jones type in Ti West's "The Sacrament"— along with James Parks ("Kill Bill"), Zoe Bell ("Death Proof") and "Django Unchained"'s Dana Gourrier, Lee Horsley, Craig Stark, Keither Jefferson and Belinda Owino. Tarantino, fighting the good fight for cinema as ever, will present his epic in. »
