Born male, she underwent a series of experimental surgeries in Germany, beginning in 1930 and changed her name to Lili Elbe. Vikander is Wegener's wife, Gerda, who saw their relationship change but always supported Lili, »

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »
After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins. While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening. Especially when it's your 40th anniversary. Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »

While the Toronto International Film Festival showcases, among its lineups, genre films, Canadian films, and features from notable underseen filmmakers and countries, the festival has also become a premier destination for high-profile features, features that often go on to become major contenders during the awards circuit that follows after a few months. These films are often found in the Gala and Special Presentations Programme, with the Gala Programme focusing on films that garner interest among the festival goers. Special Presentations, on the other hand, showcases key premieres.
Following the first wave lineup announcement, the festival has now announced additions to both Programmes. Pace Cabezas’ Mr. Right will be the closing night film for the 2015 Festival. The full list of additions, along with the official synopsis of each film, can be seen below.

Sometimes it just seems as if young Hollywood has started something new when it comes to sexuality, eschewing labels, embracing sexual fluidity and gender neutrality, and refusing to be put in a tidy little "he or she likes this" box. Well, they didn't start anything. Hardly. The Lgbtq-and-beyond conversation has been happening all around us for years and is in no way confined to show business—although some major stars have helped bring the conversation into the spotlight more recently, and not a moment too soon. To name a few, Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne, Amber Heard, Ruby Rose and, now, Kristen Stewart have been opening up about their preferences or lack thereof without fear (or at least »
Extramarital dating website Ashley Madison was hacked recently, so Jimmy Kimmel took to the streets of Hollywood to get kids’ perspective on cheating. ask children about adultery and cheating. “What is adultery?” the man on the street asked in the latest “Kids Explain” segment, and as usual, the answers were both adorable and hilarious. One little girl took aim at Johnny Depp, who recently married actress Amber Heard after ending his longtime relationship with French singer Vanessa Paradis.

I learned something with today's ratings bulletin beyond the actual ratings for a trio of upcoming films. I learned Amber Heard and Johnny Depp got married, and not necessarily all that recently... back in February. On top of that, she is apparently going by Amber Heard Depp now, or at least that's how IMDb is referring to her. Yeah, pretty exciting stuff. I found this out because Heard stars in Pamela Romanowsky's upcoming film The Adderall Diaries (as Amber Heard) alongside a large list of names including James Franco, Christian Slater, Wilmer Valderrama, Ed Harris, Jim Parrack, Cynthia Nixon and Timothee Chalamet. The pic played the Tribeca Film Festival and will be released by A24 later this year, but no official date has yet been set. Next we have a PG-13 rating for a couple of upcoming 20th Century Fox features, first off there's Fantastic Four and its "sci-fi »

Amber Heard is apparently taking the fall for smuggling her and Johnny Depp’s dogs into Australia. She’s facing criminal charges that could land her in jail for 10 years, but there is little chance she’ll forced to face charges, according to an examination of a extradition treaty. Heard, 28, was charged with two counts of illegally importing dogs Boo and Pistol, and one count of providing a false document, according to a statement from the Australian Department of Public Prosecutions. ...Read More »
Johnny Depp’s wife, Amber Heard, has been charged with illegally bringing their dogs to Australia in May, and faces 10 years in prison, as well as fines as high as $75,000.

Australia's Department of Agriculture won't let sleeping dogs lie. Amber Heard has been charged with illegally smuggling her dogs, Boo and Pistol, into the country in April. The Magic Mike Xxl actress' husband, Johnny Depp, failed to declare his Yorkshire Terriers when he traveled Down Under, thereby violating the rules of Australia's Quarantine Act 1908. At the time, Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce demanded the dogs leave the country or risk being euthanized. Depp and Heard complied with Joyce's request, and their dogs returned to L.A. The doggy drama didn't end there, though. The Paranoia actress, 29, was charged this week with two counts of illegal importation contrary to the »
The Australians just won't let this case go ... now Amber Heard has been charged with illegally bringing two dogs into the country earlier this year.
