Maika Monroe: Meet Hollywood's new Scream Queen

26 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"It drives you a little bit crazy," mused Maika Monroe about some of the water-borne ordeals she encountered while making the brilliant It Follows.

Digital Spy caught up with the blossoming actress to discuss writer-director David Robert Mitchell's relentlessly gripping horror movie, in which Monroe plays a teenager beset by a strange affliction that causes creepy creatures to stalk her. The only way out is sex. Naturally.

We also probed her on the chances of a sequel to last year's The Guest - Adam Wingard's immensely enjoyable thriller that's destined to hit cult classic status.

Plus we asked her about her work on upcoming Ya alien invasion blockbuster The Fifth Wave, which sees Monroe star alongside Chloë Grace Moretz.

It Follows is released in UK cinemas this Friday (February 27). »

Zendaya Coleman is moving on.

After Giulianna Rancic took a moment on Tuesday's E! News to apologize to the 18-year-old former Shake It Up actress over her controversial comments about her Oscars hairstyle hairstyle that showcased dreadlocks, Zendaya took to her Instagram on Wednesday to accept the public apology.

"I hope that others negatively affected by her words can also find it in their hearts to accept her apology as well.

Let's be that light and spread that love."

24 February 2015 6:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line has picked up the movie rights to Gayle Forman’s novel “I Was Here” after releasing its adaptation of the author’s teen drama “If I Stay” last summer.

New Line has not set up the project with a producer. Forman will executive produce. New Line’s Andrea Johnston is overseeing.

I Was Here,” published a month ago by Viking, centers on an 18-year-old dealing with her best friend committing suicide without warning. She discovers many secrets after traveling to her friend’s college town to pack up the belongings.

New Line teamed with MGM on “If I Stay,” which grossed $78 million worldwide on an $11 million budget. Chloe Grace Moretz starred with R.J. Cutler directing.

Universal picked up rights to Forman’s romancer “Just One Day” and sequel “Just One Year” in November. The studio plans to make a single feature with Fake Empire’s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage producing. »

24 February 2015 1:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Update: On Tuesday’s episode of “E! News,” Giuliana Rancic made a public apology, taking some time out of the broadcast to address the controversy.

“I want to apologize for a comment I made on last night’s ‘Fashion Police’ about Zendaya’s hair,” she said. “As you know, ‘Fashion Police’ is a show that pokes fun at celebrities in good spirit, but I do understand that something I said last night did cross the line. I just want everyone to know, I didn’t intend to hurt anybody. But I’ve learned it’s not my intent that matters, it’s the result, and the result is that people are offended, including Zendaya, and that is not okay. Therefore, I want to say to Zendaya, and anyone else out there that I have hurt, that I am so, so sincerely sorry. This really has been a learning experience for me. »

24 February 2015 12:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran financier Bill Block is in negotiations to exit from QED International, the production-sales-financing company he founded in 2002.

He is working out an agreement to leave Qed with Media Content Capital, which took a controlling interest in the company three years ago.

Block and Media Content Capital toppers Sasha Shapiro and Anton Lessine were not immediately available for comment, but people familiar with the situation indicate that Block’s departure has been in the works for several months.

Qed’s major recent success has been the Brad Pitt action film “Fury,” which grossed over $210 million worldwide.

Oscars 2015 Earns Lowest Ratings Since 2009

23 February 2015 3:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the 87th Academy Awards turned out to be a big night for movies like Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel, which tied for the most Oscar wins with four apiece, the telecast was the lowest-rated Academy Awards ceremony since 2009. 36.6 million viewers tuned in last night, which marks a 18% drop-off from last year's 86th Academy Awards. The show, which ran nearly a half-hour past its scheduled three-hour time slot, averaged a 10.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic, a 17% drop from last year's ceremony and the worst since 2008.

These are not the final numbers, however, since tomorrow's final figures are expected to increase. Last year's telecast hosted by Ellen DeGeneres was the most-watched ceremony since 2000. The show ran from 8:30 Pm Et to 11:48 Pm Et, with the 3-hour-18-minute ceremony still nowhere close to the all-time longest ceremony, the 2002 Oscars that ran a whopping 4 hours and 22 minutes. Still, the extended run »

12 Things You Didn't See on TV While Watching the 87th Academy Awards

23 February 2015 1:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While the 87th Academy Awards was televised in over 225 countries around the world on Sunday, there was plenty that fans didn't see on TV. ETonline was inside Hollywood's biggest night and has the inside scoop into what really happens at the Oscars.

1. Arrivals

While stars enjoy the cries of fans and the flashing bulbs of photographers when they first arrive at the Dolby Theatre, it's not the same for non A-listers. If you're not an invited celebrity guest, you are ushered in and told to "move along" until you get inside. The never-ending line is slow moving as everyone tries to soak it all in, but you definitely feel the pressure to just keep walking. The experience is very much like cattle being herded.

2. Seating

Once you're inside the theatre, the pressure is on to get to your seat as the show counts down the minutes until the host is set to take the stage. And just like »

Will Arnett Performs 'Lego Batman' Song at Oscars 2015

23 February 2015 11:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the more memorable performances during last night's 87th Oscars telecast was the Oscar-nominated song "Everything is Awesome" from The Lego Movie, performed by Tegan and Sara, Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island. The performance had a number of other surprise guests, including QuestLove from The Roots, The Lego Movie composer and Devo singer Mark Mothersbaugh and even Batman himself, as portrayed by Will Arnett.

Of course, Will Arnett voiced Batman in The Lego Movie, but he actually sang a few lines from his hilarious Batman song in the movie called "Untitled Self Portrait," which was intertwined with "Everything Is Awesome." The "Untitled Self Portrait" song could be heard in the Batwing during Batman's introduction in The Lego Movie. After the performance, The Lego Movie director Chris Miller revealed that the actor actually wore Val Kilmer's Batman suit from the 1995 movie Batman Forever during the Oscars.

Kristen Stewart becomes first American actress to win prestigious French award

23 February 2015 6:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kristen Stewart has become the first Us actress to win the prestigious Cesar award in France for her supporting role in drama Clouds of Sils Maria.

The French equivalent of the Oscars were held over the weekend, and Stewart made history with her win, which also saw Sean Penn receive a lifetime achievement award.

Accepting the prize, Stewart shouted “I love you Juliette” in French to her co-star Juliette Binoche, who stars in the film with Stewart, as does Chloe Grace Moretz.

“The reasons why people make films here in France are very different from the reasons why people make movies in Hollywood and I prefer it here a little bit,” she told Variety.

Clouds of Sils Maria is released in limited Us cinemas from April 10th, before its UK bow on May 15th.
