Mel Gibson pranks, historical blunders and Jason Patric: 20 facts about Braveheart

24 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Can you believe it? Mel Gibson's Braveheart premiered 20 years ago today in the Us, fast becoming a box office hit, a multi-Oscar winner and genuine pop culture phenomenon.

To celebrate the '90s classic's big birthday, we dive into Braveheart trivia to find out who nearly took on the role of William Wallace, the role originally earmarked for Sean Connery and which celebs count the Gibson flick among their all-time favourites.

1. Randall Wallace came up with the idea for the film while on holiday in Scotland in 1983. Visiting Edinburgh Castle, he asked a tour guide to tell him the story behind the statues of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. The guide did just that, and the rest is movie history!

2. Terry Gilliam turned down the chance to direct Braveheart after being offered the role while he was working with Gibson on an abandoned film version of A Tale of Two Cities. »

22 May 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

According to a new report from Hollywood Life and their sources, it turns out that former Twilight Saga main man, Robert Pattinson (left), is about to have a big musical bachelor party at the Glastonbury Festival in the UK. He's reportedly invited his pals to take a camping trip with him there. He also likes the location because his future wife, Fka Twigs, will be headlining at the festival, so that's pretty cool. Their source explained: "Robert loves the idea of having his bachelor party during the weekend of the Glastonbury festival in England. He wants to round up his best guy mates, and even go camping in the ultimate weekend away and enjoy the music extravaganza. Robert was planning on going anyway because Fka Twigs is one of the headliners at the event and he wanted to support her. Now, he’s willing to ignore the perils of the English summertime, »

Robert Pattinson Is Looking Very Fine on His Surprise Solo Night Out

19 May 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Robert Pattinson is a year older - and just as hot. On Monday, the actor popped up at the Heaven Knows What premiere in NYC. In true Rob style, he smiled, got serious, and even did that adorable thing he does with his hair. The picture-perfect appearance comes less than a week after he turned 29 on Wednesday. We last caught a glimpse of Rob during another solo appearance on Saturday: the actor caught some fresh air on a bike ride through NYC. Still, he's had no shortage of cute couple moments with his fiancée, Fka Twigs, this past month. Most recently, Fka bared her hot abs during their outing in La last Monday, and we still can't get over their first joint trip up the red carpet, which finally happened at the Met Gala in early May. »

Anna Kendrick is the new Indiana Jones in Last Crusade reboot: "Times have changed"

18 May 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade gets a whole new look as Anna Kendrick slips on Indy's cap for a reboot.

Gone is the five o'clock shadow - this Indiana Jones has some more practical uses for the Holy Grail but is just as quippy as ever!

This new female Indiana Jones parody was actually produced by Funny or Die for this week's Red Nose Day Us to poke fun at the upcoming all-female Ghostbusters movie and rumours of an Indy reboot.

Starring with Kendrick in the Red Nose Day Us video is comedian Brett Gelman, who plays a neurotic protector of the Grail.

The biennial Red Nose Day telethon is being brought from the UK to the Us for the first time by Sir Richard Curtis to raise money for 12 charities working with children and young adults in the Us and Africa.

NBC's star-studded lineup for the three-hour telethon includes Matt LeBlanc, »

Fka twigs got more than she bargained for when she began dating Robert Pattinson last September.

The couple is hounded by paparazzi and their every move is chronicled due to RPatz's overwhelming fame – something the artist wasn't, and still isn't, used to.

"It’s really hard — I can’t begin to explain how awful it is," she told the New York Times. "It makes you want to just stop everything sometimes. It makes you want to smash your face into the mirror."

Cannes: New Incentives Boost Dutch Cinema and Filmmaking in the Netherlands

17 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Dutch film industry received a major boost last year with the introduction of the €20 million ($22.2 million)-a-year Netherlands Film Production Incentive.

Overseen by the Netherlands Film Fund, the country’s main film board, the incentive offers a 30% cash rebate on local spend for film productions in the country.

“The film fund has an outward-looking policy towards coproduction and makes a strong effort to stimulate both majority and minority Dutch co-productions,” says Netherlands Film Fund CEO Doreen Boonekamp.

Backed by the Ministry of Culture, the fund’s total 2015 funding budget is $54 million, with about $28 million slated for various funding initiatives, including the production incentive.

Boonekamp says of the 76 films produced in the Netherlands last year, 56, or 74%, were international co-productions.

The Netherlands’ efforts to support international collaborations have resulted in an increase of cross-border co-productions in recent years and received an additional boost with the introduction of the new production incentive scheme last year. »

16 May 2015 4:16 PM, PDT | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

Robert Pattinson and Fka Twigs are going to sign a prenup, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this rumor, which started in one of the tabloids. We're told it's not necessarily about trust, money or even divorce, and has much more to do with having a document that will serve as a "blueprint" for for how they both plan to spend their life together married. »

16 May 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Fka twigs is just trying to make it as an indie music performer, but her relationship might be getting in the way of that. The eclectic and experimental R&B singer opened up to the New York Times about her upcoming, sold-out show, Congregata, and how her career has been affected by her relationship—and now engagement—to Twilight star Robert Pattinson. The 27-year-old was thrust into the spotlight as soon as she stepped out with R.Pattz for the first time and hasn't left it since, which is something she wasn't used to beforehand. "It's really hard—I can't begin to explain how awful it is," she said of the constant paparazzi. "It makes you want to just stop everything »

Men, Motors & Meltdowns: A ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Feature

15 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you stick cars and explosions in a movie, men will go and see it. The Fast & Furious franchise has clocked up a ridiculous number of miles at the box office and now another series is about to join the fun, set in the future but resurrected from a seemingly-dormant past.

Mad Max: Fury Road takes us back to the dusty, post-apocalyptic world of Max Rockatansky, a man as burned by tragedy as by the relentless Outback sun. Originally played by Mel Gibson, this time round rising Brit Tom Hardy adopts the mantle (and indeed the accent) for a blistering thrill ride of machine-based mayhem that has had even the most genteel critics foaming at the mouth.

Though Charlize Theron provides equal star power as Imperator Furiosa, it’s safe to say this film is largely one for the boys. So with that in mind, »
