With so many hard "R" ratings in today's MPAA ratings bulletin it's mildly comical to me that one of them is not Dracula Untold, the Luke Evans starrer that will take a new look at the blood sucking king of all vampires and deliver it in PG-13 fashion. Ugh. As for those hard "R" movies, let's begin with Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer of which he spoke with Collider regarding making a hard "R" rated film saying: The violence you witness is Denzel doing it and we're taking some visual effects and doing some things and you see something happen it's happening in front of you as opposed to cutting away and doing a bunch of tricks. It's in front of you. So it's hard not to make it a hard 'R' if you see a guy get punched and teeth wind up in someone's knuckles, you know what I »

Does Britney Spears actually know why ice water is being poured on her? I'm not convinced. But what does it matter? The so-called "ice bucket challenge" is for a good cause - over $15 million has been donated to the Als Association since the fundraising campaign began - and a bunch more celebrities have since joined the fray, from Ben Affleck to Britney Spears to LeBron James to Lady Gaga, who wins the "Most Artistic" superlative once again with her stoic Instagram clip. (Amy Schumer's is still the best though.) Check out the latest round of videos below, and go here to donate. Lady Gaga (nominated Adele): Tom Hiddleston (nominated Benedict Cumberbatch and Luke Evans): Britney Spears (nominated Adam Sandler): Justin Timberlake (nominated Jimmy Fallon and The Roots): Ben Affleck (nominated Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris, Matt Damon and wife Jennifer Garner): (function(d, s, »

It’s not every day that you get to talk to two elves and Middle Earth’s Bard the Bowman, but that’s exactly what we were able to do recently at Comic-Con.
While actors of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies were paired as they made their way through the press lines, we were lucky enough to score some solo time with both Cate Blanchett and Luke Evans, plus we got some bonus face time with Orlando Bloom.
We talked to the radiant Blanchett about what we will see Galadriel get up to in the final chapter of Jackson’s Middle Earth saga. Can you believe that it’s been 13 years since she first appeared on screen as Galadriel?
Evans, who hasn’t quite been a Jackson collaborator as long as his co-stars Bloom and Blanchett talked to us about our favourite human in the »

MGM and Paramount are starting to put together their cast for the Ben-Hur remake, and they have their sights set high for the lead role. Deadline reports that Tom Hiddleston is being courted to play Judah Ben-Hur in the Biblical epic, which has Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter director Timur Bekmambetov set to helm. The pic is based on the original novel by Lew Wallace, which was subsequently turned into a classic 1959 film starring Charlton Heston. Bemkambetov’s version is described as focusing on the nature of faith, as it follows a falsely accused nobleman who sets out to take vengeance on the best friend who betrayed him. Hit the jump for more on the prospect of Hiddleston’s casting. The folks at Deadline report that Hiddleston is apparently the top choice to fill Heston’s shoes in the Ben-Hur remake, but they caution that it’s not nearly a done deal. »

A new film is to reveal one of the biggest mysteries of the Great Train Robbery.
The Great Train Robbery: A Tale of Two Thieves will finally unmask the identity of the elusive 'Ulsterman', who provided important information to the train robbers back in 1963.
The film will be released at selected cinemas in October, followed by a DVD and on-demand release on October 6.
Gordon Goody, one of the robbery masterminds, appears on film discussing the Ulsterman for the first time after 51 years.
15 men succeeded in stealing today's equivalent of £45 million. The Ulsterman's identity has been the subject of debate by the public and the police for many decades.
Director Chris Long said: "This story could never happen now. Meeting Goody was a fantastic, powerful experience and he has an unbelievable presence.
"Characters like him don't exist anymore and after shunning the public for a very long time, he and »

The teaser trailer for the last film in Peter Jackson's sprawling "Hobbit" trilogy is here, and, if you haven't seen it, it's serious business. Martin Freeman stars as Bilbo Baggins, the lovely little hobbit who ends up on an incredible journey with dragons and elves and all sorts of crazy stuff. In this trailer, he narrates some pretty sad scenes -- the aftermath of battles, Smaug's fiery attacks, and the loss of a beloved mentor. Well, sort of loss. Transmogrification? Something like that.
Check out the trailer below for a glimpse of Bilbo's sad little face, some elfin butt-kicking courtesy of Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Thranduil (Lee Pace), and much more. Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Luke Evans, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett co-star, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of Smaug.
"The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies" opens in the United States on December 17.

As has been the case with all of Peter Jackson's films (especially where Middle-Earth is concerned), the previous The Hobbit film, The Desolation of Smaug is getting an extended edition. Warner Bros. have now announced the details on the upcoming blu-ray, which includes 25 minutes of extra footage, and you'll be able to get it in your hands just in time for the final film in the trilogy. Come inside to check out all the details!
I loved the Extended Edition versions of all the Lord of the Rings films. They were great and added in some content that genuinely fleshed out characters and storylines...Yet, I've had very little interest in seeing more of The Hobbit films. For the most part, this is due to the fact that I feel The Hobbit films have been bloated from the get-go. There are plenty of scenes in both of these movies »

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition will be released on Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray November 4, just in time for the holiday shopping season. These sets will include over 25 minutes of footage that wasn't included in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug's theatrical presentation, along with brand new special features.
If you can't wait three long months to check out this new footage, then you're in luck, because we have a never-before-seen clip where Bilbo (Martin Freeman) is sent to cross above the dangerously enchanted waters of Mirkwood Forest, by using the unstable vines above the stream. Take a look at this scene, then check out the artwork for these Extended Edition sets and read the official press release for more details.
Taylor Kitsch is a man in demand at present, with The Wrap reporting that the action star has been offered the leading role in the Us remake of The Raid. According to the report, Kitsch is the top of director Patrick Hughes’ wish-list, with the pair having recently worked together on The Expendables 3. Frank Grillo has also been cast in the new film, with Luke Evans, Anthony Mackie and Ethan Hawke reportedly on the studio’s wish-list. Kitsch, however, is currently at the front of the queue. However, any involvement in The Raid...

The 'Lord Of The Rings' lead is set to star alongside Vin Diesel in the upcoming supernatural thriller.
The film follows an immortal witch hunter, played by Diesel, who must team up with – you guessed it – a witch (Leslie), in order to save all of New York City from being destroyed by a villainous coven.
The mismatched buddy-cop genre has been dwindling in recent years, and by replacing the cops with supernatural beings, it could infuse a new life into the motif.
No details have yet to be released about the nature of Wood's character in the film.

A remake of the Indonesian action hit The Raid has been in the works since 2011, but it wasn't until earlier this year that The Expendables 3 director Patrick Hughes was brought on board to direct the film. Production was delayed slightly back to 2015, and the cast is currently being rounded up with Frank Grillo being the only confirmed cast member after being mentioned on a shortlist with desired stars like Ethan Hawke, Anthony Mackie and Luke Evans. However, a new name has emerged who wasn't on the shortlist as The Wrap has learned that John Carter and Battleship star Taylor Kitsch has an offer for the lead role. However, it's far form a done deal, because Kitsch is still in consideration for a lead role in the second season of HBO's original series "True Detective." It appears he could still end up with that coveted television role, but his representatives »

As a massive fan of Peter Jackson and all things Middle-earth, I was delighted this year at Comic Con to take on the WB’s press line for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. While there, we spoke to Cate Blanchett, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace and the incomparable Andy Serkis – who we had the pleasure of speak with for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. There was a mixture of excitement and awe for this talented group as this series is finally coming to an »
