Ello, Ellen! Joan Collins gathered a group of British celebrities to recreate Ellen DeGeneres' amazing selfie from the 2014 Oscars on the red carpet of the Prince's Trust and Samsung Celebrate Success Awards on Wednesday, March 12. Joining 80-year-old Collins for the picture-perfect moment were Sir Ben Kingsley, Dominic West, Luke Evans, Jeremy Irons, Pixie Lott, and other U.K. stars. "'Selfie' support," Collins captioned the pic via Twitter. The Dynasty alum apparently attempted, even, to get Prince Charles to join in on the selfie, but the Daily [...] »
Prince Charles apparently wasn't interested in following the selfie steps of Brad Pitt and Bradley Cooper, let alone The Simpsons and various Lego figures. Armed with a smart phone, Joan Collins rangled a number of fellow U.K.-born celebs into recreating Ellen DeGeneres' A-list-packed Oscars selfie today at the Prince's Trust and Samsung Celebrate Success Awards. But while the likes of Luke Evans, Sir Ben Kingsley, Dominic West and Jeremy Irons joined in, even Alexis Carrington herself couldn't seduce the Prince of Wales into participating. Charles posed for regular photos with the group, but an eyewitness told the Daily Mail that he appeared to »

The leading actor award went to Chiwetel Ejiofor for “12 Years a Slave.” He paid tribute to Steve McQueen, and said that the award really belonged to the helmer. “It’s yours. I’m going to keep it, but it is yours,” he said.

Are you excited? This Sunday sees the BAFTAs head our way, which is – quite frankly – the best awards ceremony out there and to prove it – even in this crazy British weather – we’ve got confirmation of all the biggest stars attending this Sunday 16th February, 2014.
Let’s get straight to it because there’s some massive names here that include nominees, presenters and other attendees of the prestigious event at the Royal Opera House, London. They are, in handy alphabetical order:
Alfonso Cuarón, Amy Adams, Barkhad Abdi, Bradley Cooper, Bruce Dern, Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christian Bale, Daniel Brühl, David O. Russell, Emma Thompson, Dame Judi Dench, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Scorsese, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender, Oprah Winfrey, Paul Greengrass, Ron Howard, Sally Hawkins, Sandra Bullock, Steve Coogan, Steve McQueen and Tom Hanks.

The ceremony - hosted by Stephen Fry from London's Royal Opera House - will take place on Sunday night (February 16).
The nominees confirmed to attend are as follows: Alfonso Cuarón, Amy Adams, Barkhad Abdi, Bradley Cooper, Bruce Dern, Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christian Bale, Daniel Brühl, David O. Russell, Emma Thompson, Dame Judi Dench, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Scorsese, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender, Oprah Winfrey, Paul Greengrass, Ron Howard, Sally Hawkins, Sandra Bullock, Steve Coogan, Steve McQueen and Tom Hanks.

Can we talk about the official Oscar site for a minute? The past few years they've really improved it but some things are questionable. Like their live blog of the nominee luncheon being just a series of photos or this weird article about the biggest Oscar surprises evers that seeks to rewrite history and imagine a world where everyone didn't know that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon were winning Screenplay for Good Will Hunting. Lmfao. Everyone knew that. But I have to say that I love their nominee questionnaire. Especially the handwritten responses from various celebrities and filmmakers.

When it comes to ascending a summit, first to the top usually wins. News this week confirmed that Working Title’s Everest, to be released by Universal, is a go. The film, from director Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns) began production Monday in Italy, with Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke and John Hawkes playing four of the climbers who attempted the disastrous 1996 ascent of Mount Everest in the Himalayas, only to be thwarted with terrible conditions that led to the loss of many lives.
Now that this film is in production, will it kill a competing Everest film at Sony?

Exclusive: Wme has signed rising helmer Gary Shore and his ArtCastle label. Shore directed the upcoming Universal Pictures film Dracula Untold. With producer Jonathan Loughran (The F Word), Shore operates ArtCastle from Los Angeles and Dublin. The filmmaker first got notice here after Loughran circulated his trailer Cup Of Tears, going viral with it. That led to a bidding battle and a deal with Working Title to develop a feature version, which in turn led to a three-picture deal with Universal for ArtCastle that started Dracula Untold. The bloodsucker stars Luke Evans, Dominic Cooper and Sarah Gadon and will be released in October. The company’s goal is to develop film and TV for Shore to direct and produce, as they continue to be a catalyst in financing and producing films that will shoot in Ireland. Among the projects ArtCastle is percolating: 38, an action thriller scripted by In America‘s Naomi Sheridan; The Ranger, »

In 1994, actor Brandon Lee, son of the legendary Bruce Lee, was tragically shot and killed. This was no act of criminal violence; the trigger was pulled by an actor on set during the filming of Alex Proyas’ supernatural revenge-thriller The Crow, an adaptation of James O’Barr’s comic. A dummy bullet trapped in the gun was overlooked when blank cartridges were being inserted – a mistake, but one which would make The Crow Lee’s last film. Script changes, clever editing and digital effects were used to complete the film without its lead actor, coincidentally giving the entire film a strange, melancholic air when the viewer is aware of Lee’s death.
3 sequels followed the highly-praised original, all of which received ‘meh’ responses. A Canadian television series, The Crow: Stairway To Heaven, was also produced, during which another accidental death occurred when an unexpected explosion killed stuntman Marc Akerstream. Now, »

The reboot of The Crow has moved into preproduction and the anticipation of this is mixed. The comic on which The Crow is based is dark and intense and the film adaptation with Brandon Lee is pretty different from the source material in many ways but has a strong following as well. To then remake The Crow is wrought with potential problems not only those inherent to any remake or reimagining of a loved original but also the question of where to take the story without Brandon Lee. Reboot star Luke Evans says the comic will be respected with this reboot. »
Not only have attempts to continue the franchise outside the original 1994 film met with bad reviews and poor box-office, the first film was made famous for the death of its lead star Brandon Lee midway through production.
Welsh actor Luke Evans steps into the shoes of the character of resurrected rock star Eric Draven for this outing. With the project in pre-production ahead of filming to begin shortly, Evans spoke with Rcn TV this week to explain what those involved in this incarnation are trying to do:
"Well, we just want to be as authentic and loyal to the original comic as possible, and that means the story will be different. It’ll be different from what people are expecting.
It’s not about »

I've made known my reservations about The Crow remake before, I won't bore you with a long spiel again. Short version: the original was a classic, holds deep meaning for me personally, and shouldn't be touched. One thing that does soften my opinions about it is that it is said to be much closer to the source material, and not just a re-hash of the original (the comic's creator James O'Barr has signed on as consultant), meaning the more supernatural concepts of the comic, such as the Skull Cowboy (a guide to lead character Eric Draven, who had scenes shot for the original which were ultimately cut), made make an appearance. Red Carpet News TV caught up with Luke Evans, who will be stepping in to lead role made famous by Brandon Lee, who had a few things to say about the direction of the movie, and how it plans »

Fans of Brandon Lee's 1994 cult classic "The Crow" may have worried that the upcoming reboot of the comic would sully the memory of their beloved movie. But Luke Evans, the actor tasked with playing Lee's iconic role of Eric Draven, is quick to assuage those fears.
In an interview this week with Red Carpet News, Evans discussed the reboot and how filmmakers are handling the intense pressure from fans of the original film. The first step is distancing itself from the 1994 flick.
"We just want to be as authentic and loyal to the original comic as possible, and that means the story will be different," Evans told the site, adding that the new movie would defy expectations while remaining respectful of its origins. " ... It's not about us ripping off the Brandon Lee movie. That stands alone as a brilliant piece of cult film and a great performance. But we're going back to the book, »
