In an industry where A-list actresses are taught to compete with each other for the few three-dimensional parts that Hollywood bothers to create for women, Jessica Chastain rises above that fray: The Zero Dark Thirty star has always been a terrifically vocal advocate and ally of her fellow actresses, and when she sees another woman delivering a powerful performance, she'll begin touting that actress with such a fervor that you might suspect Chastain has found a second career as the woman's publicist. That isn't the case, of course: Chastain is simply a self-described cinephile whose most impassioned cause is remedying the "huge problem in American cinema where stories about women aren’t nurtured and celebrated and brought to the screen as often as stories about men." She does her part in every interview she gives, where she's more likely to discuss the other actresses she admires than she is to »

A version of this story first appeared in the Sept. 12 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Toronto Film Festival titles seeking U.S. homes tout lots of star power, from Jennifer Aniston and Tobey Maguire to Jessica Chastain and Adam Sandler, though buyers don't yet know how broadly the movies will play. But there are sure to be plenty of domestic deals thanks in part to a new crop of U.S. distributors, including former Focus Features co-ceo Andrew Karpen's Bleecker Street. "The spring and summer were relatively good for independent film, so I think people are somewhat

The 34-year-old designer of some of New York's and Hollywood's chicest and most classic eveningwear has been cutting great gowns for New York Fashion Week for 13 years now. And Zac Posen also has been cementing his red-carpet status ever since Jessica Chastain's Venice Film Festival debut in 2011, in which she stunned in a Zac Posen buttercup yellow chiffon Grecian gown. Recently, Michelle Dockery donned his sexy strapless green dress at the Audi pre-Emmy party, Jessica Alba wore another blue Zac at the Sin City premiere and Katie Holmes appeared to great fanfare in his

Time knocks them for not keeping their promise to the gays. I knew this backlash would happen. But they did hold out a long time and they've done so much good for the world including for marriage equality that I think we should let it slide
Gawker asks the intriguing question: "Why is Angelina Jolia a movie star?"
Some of her movies have been well-received acting vehicles. Some of her movies have been gargantuan commercial products. There is no place where those circles overlap on the Venn diagram.
It's worth pondering her atypical celebrity.

Can you believe that it’s the end of August already? Yes, by the time this weekend comes to a close, it’ll be September and two thirds of the year will be gone. As such, I figured I would do something you won’t see many other places…an article on the best of the first two thirds of 2014. Eight months have passed in the year and we’ve only got the top tier Oscar contenders left to see, so it felt natural to run down what’s been top drawer from the rest of the bunch. I’ll be giving you a look at what my current top ten of the year so far looks like, as well as what my own personal awards ballot at this juncture would look like. Hopefully it’s something fun that you enjoy reading…I know it’s the sort of thing that I enjoy writing! »

Heads up, aspiring actors: watch UK leading men Benedict Cumberbatch, James McAvoy, Colin Farrell, Jim Broadbent and Hugh Dancy talk acting, fame, rejection, managing idiosyncratic directors and more in a special BAFTA video. With close-up commentary and amorous camerawork, the interviews are certainly easy on the eyes--especially in the case of recent "Sherlock" Emmy winner and Oscar hopeful Cumberbatch, star of The Weinstein Company's “The Imitation Game," which hits Telluride this weekend. McAvoy, meanwhile, will soon be seen in "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them," the first in Ned Benson's three-part romantic epic costarring Jessica Chastain. »

The story of Ned Benson's "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them" has ben told over and over by now. A condensed version of his two part project,"The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: His" and "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Hers" (which will also be opening this fall, if you want the full film), it tracks the arc of a relationship turned upside down by tragedy. And while there has been plenty of ink spilled regarding the structure of the movie and some trailers, the first two clips, below, provide the best context yet for the film. Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy lead the movie as Eleanor and Conor, and these two scenes demonstrate an easy spark between their characters. In the first, something as simple as a makeout session in a car highlights their strong chemistry, while pulling a dine and dash at a restaurant acts as an adventurous bonding moment. »

While Jessica Chastain has been climbing the Hollywood ranks with conviction, starring in Oscar nominees such as The Help and Zero Dark Thirty, I rather liked her role as a punk-rocking “mother” in the Guillermo del Toro produced Mama. I know it wasn’t a critical darling by any means, but the whole movie was a bit of fantastical horror with a true family vibe, so when it was announced that Mama 2 was entering the early stages of production, I actually showed some excitement.
Fast-forward over a year and there hasn’t been a single piece of news on the sequel. Mama director Andres Muschiett was supposed to helm Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, but left citing creative differences, and his sister Barbara expressed only surprise after initially hearing that a Mama sequel was in the “early stages,” so it’s no surprise that news is sparse.

Jessica Chastain has called for a female superhero movie to be released.
"Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don't understand it, why is it taking so long for this?" she declared to The Wrap. "This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies."
Chastain continued: "Lucy, didn't it beat Hercules by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson?
"To me, it's a no-brainer. You want to make money, »
In the past, Jessica Chastain ("Interstellar") was supposed to appear in Iron man 3 but due to a scheduling conflict she couldn't participate. She was also rumored to be up for the female lead in Ant-Man at one time and passed on that too. Now Jessica is speaking up for Marvel's most successful female actress, Scarlett Johansson. Wondering where is her solo Marvel film? “Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don't understand it, why is it taking so long for this?” Chastain asked TheWrap, rhetorically and with no small degree of animation. “This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies. ‘Lucy,’ didn't it beat ‘Hercules’ by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. ‘Under the Skin’ is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for »

Jessica Chastain, who played secret agents in “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Debt,” is going to bat for a fellow ass-kicking leading lady. Speaking of the dearth of great roles for women in Hollywood, the actress told TheWrap on Wednesday that she would love to see “Avengers” star Scarlett Johansson get her own super-vehicle.

Check out a new minute-long TV spot for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar.” I don’t think there’s anything here you haven’t seen already in the previous trailers, but hey, it’s Nolan and it’s sci-fi, and those are two of my favorite things these days. Take a look, take a lookers. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, and Wes Bentley.

Warner Bros just unveiled a new IMAX TV spot for Christopher Nolan's upcoming "Interstellar" sci-fi film, starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace and David Gyasi. Check it out below. Plot: "Interstellar" chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Warner Bros. has released a “new” Interstellar TV spot for writer/director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film. The spot doesn’t actually contain any new footage, but instead just repurposes footage from the latest trailer in a new 60-second cut—and that’s fine by me. Nolan usually does a fine job of keeping the major aspects of his films out of the trailers, but even The Dark Knight Rises wasn’t immune to WB’s need to show footage from the third act in the trailers leading up to its release. Regardless, Interstellar certainly looks to be one hell of a moviegoing experience, and with this absolutely stacked cast onboard I can’t wait to see what Nolan has put together. Hit the jump to watch the UK Interstellar TV spot for a reminder of just how good this movie looks. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, »

Propelled by Oscar-nominated roles in Zero Dark Thirty and The Help, Jessica Chastain has fast become one of our most prolific actresses, but even she’s outdone herself with Ned Benson’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, a relationship drama elided over three separate films: one told from the point of view of Chastain’s troubled wife, another from the perspective of her estranged husband (James McAvoy), and a third combining the previous two. That’d be enough for most movie stars, but Chastain also has pivotal parts this fall in Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar and J.C. Chandor’s crime drama A Most Violent Year. This month, she rang up Vulture to discuss them all.Eleanor Rigby debuted at film festivals in two separate installments — Him and Her — and wasn’t combined into a Them until Harvey Weinstein picked up the project. Were you wary of the recut? »

We're approaching that point where the marketing for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is going to become almost intolerable so, unless Paramount releases a new full trailer (which they obviously will), this will probably be the last time I dedicate a single post to just one TV spot. But, since we are still a ways out from that November 7 release date I figured what the hell when it comes to this new one, after all it is a minute long. Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. The cast includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo and Matt Damon among many others.
