“I’ve pinched my arm a few times over the last couple years,” Alicia Vikander told moderator Sharon Waxman at TheWrap’s Award Screening of Tom Hooper‘s “The Danish Girl” at the Landmark Theater in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The Swedish actress who shot to fame in 2012’s “A Royal Affair” is having the kind of year Jessica Chastain experienced in 2011: Vikander’s five 2015 U.S. releases include the critical indie smash “Ex Machina” and Hooper’s amazingly timely love story about the world’s first transgender surgery patient (played by last year’s Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne »

Terrence Malick has evolved a cinematic style over his two films since "Tree of Life," all shot by Oscar-winning Emmanuel "Chivo" Lubezki, that involves following his protagonists through various spaces and landscapes, accompanied by voice-over narrations and lush classical music. Austin-based Malick, age 69, likes to shoot in an improvisational piecemeal way as inspiration hits and his actor collaborators are at hand. (They never know how or if they will wind up in the final product, shaped over time in the editing room.) Malick usually follows a male protagonist (Sean Penn, Ben Affleck, Christian Bale) through interactions with other characters, often women partners. With 2011's Cannes-winning entry "The Tree of Life," Malick's method cohered into a powerful narrative centered on a family dominated by a powerful father (Brad Pitt in his best performance to date) and loving mother (Jessica Chastain). But having revealed this approach, the »

The story revolves around a murder onboard the famous train of a rather nasty American tycoon. Belgian detective Poirot must figure out who is responsible before the train, currently stuck in the snow, is freed and allows for the potential suspects to disembark. The answer, which ties back to a famous child abduction case, is more complicated than he could have ever thought.
A large ensemble of A-lst stars are expected to be a part of the cast. The work was previous adapted onto a multiple Oscar-nominated film in 1974 with Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave and Michael York.
It was adapted again in 2004 as part of the long-running David Suchet-led TV series. »

There has been a lot of buzz around Jeff Nichol’s latest film, which marks his first foray into sci-fi. The director made waves when he broke through with his second feature Take Shelter, which starred Michael Shannon as a man who either had special powers in for-seeing an impending storm, or was just crazy. The film also starred a then new-comer, Jessica Chastain, who had to worry about her husband as well as their deaf daughter.
Nichols has so far been an expert at working with child actors. From Tova Stewart in Take Shelter, to the two leads of his third film, Mud, Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland, who help Matthew McConaughey as a fugitive searching for his true love.
The child in Midnight Special, however, is not like them—and he is not like us.
While we don’t have too many details, it’s apparent from the »

Here's Murtada deconstructing the trailer for the ridiculously titled The Huntsman Winters War.
- Chastain as a the Warrior. Yes!
- Blunt and Theron as dueling evil sisters. Yes again! May campiness rule the day.
- The oversize gestures of Blunt and Theron as they wreak havoc. Give me more!
- So it’s obviously all about the actresses. Oh and the possibility of a shirtless Chris Hemsworth.
- From the producer of Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland….. Nooooooo.
- Hemsworth gets top billing?? I guess he's The Hunstman.
- The CGI doesn't look very convincing.
- “Men have forgotten what it means to be afraid. We will bring fear”. Hmmm cheesy line. It could be fun if the tone is over the top campy. The trailer is playing it straight so we are dubious. »

Sorry, Chris Hemsworth: You had your year, and now it's David Beckham's turn to be People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive! The Huntsman: Winter's War hunk is obviously just as good looking now as he was circa 2014, but that didn't stop co-star Jessica Chastain from having a little good-natured fun at his expense. She tweeted Hemsworth a link to Beckham's cover, adding comically, "Oh man...you must be devastated. I know how much this title meant to you." The 32-year-old Australian actor took the jibe in jest, of course. "Thank u @jes_chastain for your kind words & timely reminder that I'm now over the hill," he responded.

We hadn't really been paying much attention to the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, save for gawking at photos of Chris Hemsworth looking all dirty and hunky. And then the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War dropped and now we can't stop talking about it. Why? Because it's full of badass female characters that will almost definitely make us shout out "Yasss, slay us all, ladies!" throughout the entire movie. Sure, we'll get thrown out of the theater but it'll be worth it. Here are all the times Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt looked so fierce and strong that it turned us into the human equivalent of the prayer hands emojis: 1. When Freya, the »
"Whoever gets in there will be unstoppable." Universal has debuted the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War, the sequel to 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman that no one asked for but they made anyway. Chris Hemsworth returns as The Huntsman, and Charlize Theron as the evil Queen, but they've also lined up two great actresses to join: Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt. Unfortunately, this looks like a terrible CGI-fest without much substance. In fact, it looks like they're trying to replicate Disney's Frozen in a more gritty, live-action way. And that just irks me and makes me despise this, but give it a look. Here's the first trailer for Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's The Huntsman: Winter's War, from Uni's YouTube: The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined.
