During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, Nasa and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, »

We’re still waiting on a release date (beyond “summer” anyway), but thanks to Comic Book we’ve got a look at the upcoming Blu-ray steelbook cover for X-Men: Days of Future Past – The Rogue Cut, which you can see here…
The extended version of last year’s mutant superhero sequel is set to add an extra 17 minutes to the film, which as you can probably guess from the title, are focussed on the character of Rogue (Anna Paquin), who was all but cut from the theatrical version.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by Bryan Singer and sees X-Men veterans Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Lucas Till (Havok), Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) joined in the cast by »

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Following his adventure in a galaxy far, far away this December in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Oscar Isaac is set to take on the role of the titular villain in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during an interview with IGN to promote his latest film Ex Machina, Isaac shared a few thoughts on Apocalypse’s motivation, and his recruitment of the Four Horsemen.
“Without giving anything away, the recruitment of the Four Horsemen is very cool. It’s very interesting the way that he does that. You know the idea of – the way that cult leaders do – they find people that are in need of something and try to fulfill that thing in them – as it relates to every one of the Horseman… On an individual level he’s able to reveal the true power of his Horsemen and what’s true to them. And I think »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010. See also: "Doris Day Inexplicably Snubbed by Academy," "Maureen O'Hara Honorary Oscar," "Honorary Oscars: Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo Among Rare Women Recipients," and "Hayao Miyazaki Getting Honorary Oscar." Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Unstoppable, ass-kicking heroines are still a minority in film and television, but we like to think that things are getting better. Women have been tearing it up in more and more in recent years in high profile Ya adaptations, superhero movies and gripping dramas from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Tatiana Maslany.
Here are some of the most awesome female leads from television and film, all waiting to be watched on Netflix right now:
Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire)
Young adult adaptations have been all the rage in recent years, with a gratifying number of talented young women taking the lead roles. Out of all of these, Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss has got to be our favourite.
Panem is a terrible place to live, and, on top of that, Katniss is handed some extra helpings of personal tragedy. And while not entirely comfortable or willing »
Las Vegas - 20th Century Fox found themselves mostly on the Oscar sidelines last year thanks to "Gone Girl" director David Fincher's unwillingness to partake in such matters, but 2015 looks like it's going to be a completely different story. On Thursday the studio highlighted much of its upcoming slate including footage from expected hits such as "Spy," "The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials" and "Victor Frankenstein." What really popped, however, are four titles that could make big waves during the upcoming awards season. The footage from Ridley Scott's "The Martian" depicts a faithful adaptation of Andrew Weir's novel. A crew of Nasa astronauts finds themselves racing to evacuate their base on Mars as a gigantic storm approaches. The problem is one member of the crew, Mark Whatley (Matt Damon), doesn't make the escape vehicle in time. The preview actually begins with Jeff Daniels' character telling a press conference Whatley is presumed dead. »

This year the strong slate from Fox chairman Jim Gianopulos and his new motion picture chief Stacey Snider offers several fall possibilities for the award season. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's revenge action adventure "The Revenant" (December 25, limited) puts bearded frontiersmen Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy into a harsh North American winter landscape. The footage shot by Emmanuel Lubezki in natural light looked stunning--and the action was harrowing, including intense pursuit on horseback by Native Americans. New Regency's Brad Weston and Arnon Milchan are producing; they and Fox Searchlight produced two Best Picture Oscar-winners in a row, "12 Years a Slave" and "Birdman." David O. Russell's "Joy," about Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence) who builds a billion-dollar family empire (Miracle Mop, Huggable Hangers), looks emotional, dramatic and intense, as the »

The dialogue-free footage, with church bells chiming throughout, showed a blonde, smile-free Lawrence getting married and donning welder’s gear to design the Miracle Mop in the role of inventor-entrepreneur Joy Mangano, a single mother living in Long Island. Russell previously directed Lawrence in “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle.”
Fox has set “Joy” for a Christmas Day release.

Steve is currently in Las Vegas for CinemaCon, which is a convention put on by the various movie studios in order preview their upcoming films for theater owners. Essentially, it’s Comic-Con for theatrical exhibitors, and each studio is trying to put its best foot forward. Steve has already shared video blog recaps of the presentations for Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Paramount Pictures, and he’s currently getting ready to see footage from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming films. As he was entering the auditorium, Steve snapped some photos of the logos for a few of Fox’s upcoming movies, most notably David O. Russell’s drama Joy starring Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar winner Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s period revenge pic The Revenant, and Ridley Scott’s sci-fi adaptation The Martian. Now these are likely temporary logos so don’t count on this being the final typeset, but it is »

Fox's presentation at CinemaCon provided a slew of new footage from its hotly anticipated late-2015 films, including The Revenant; David O. Russell’s Joy, starring Jennifer Lawrence; and Ridley Scott’s The Martian. All three projects came off as very dark and tension-filled. Director Alejandro Inarritu is shooting The Revenant (out in limited release on Dec. 25), starring Leonardo DiCaprio, with only natural light in the harsh wilderness of Canada. Joy (out Dec. 25) centers on the struggles of a single mom and inventor who is chasing the American dream. Fittingly, Russell’s footage was set to dark music and seemed much less

Joss Whedon: assembler of Avengers, slayer of vampires, houser of dolls, vlogger of Doctor Horrible, and now, um, ageist of Ultron. To be fair, Joss Whedon is geek royalty, and needs no introduction. So hopefully, he won’t mind that we gave him such a naff one.
We got to chat with the man himself at the Avengers: Age Of Ultron press event, and here’s what happened...
From what we’ve heard about this one, it sounds like you had to trim down a lot in the editing room. Was there any particular favourite scene you wish you could have saved?
Well, there was more shirtless Thor. The DVD extras are going to be enormously popular. But no, for me, it’s really a couple of little exchanges that »
Fashion's biggest night is almost here! There are less than two weeks to go until the Costume Institute Gala 2015, which will take place at NYC's famed Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, May 4. And while the theme ("China: Through the Looking Glass") and celebrity co-chair (Jennifer Lawrence) were announced well in advance, one question still remains: Who's going to the ball? A source confirmed to Us Weekly that Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lopez, and Zoe Kravitz are all set to attend the Met Gala. But Fashionista managed [...] »
Willow Shields has a confession to make. The Dancing With the Stars contestant known for her role as Prim Everdeen, sister to Jennifer Lawrence's character Katniss in The Hunger Games movies, is coming clean. "I'm an alien," she told us backstage. "What? Sorry, I zoned out for a second there," her partner Mark Ballas said. Um, us too. What did she say? "I just said I'm an alien," she replied. "Oh, you are an alien," Mark said. "I am," Willow concurred. Yeah…what?! Willow, who scored a 34 for her Salsa with Mark and a 39 for her team dance, was referring to her "alien" extra body parts: ribs. "I have »
The star of “Gossip Girl” explained why she’s been selective when it comes to her career. “I look for a movie that I can’t not do,” says Lively, was in the running for “Silver Linings Playbook” but lost the part to Jennifer Lawrence (and later gave birth in December 2014). “There are plenty of movies that you read and think, ‘I could kind of see doing this.’ But there are few movies that you read and think, ‘I can’t not be in this film.’”

He’s only 18 years old but he’s already established himself as one of the finest young actors working in Hollywood today having impressed in The Road, Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and more recently Slow West, ironically alongside his fellow mutant Michael Fassbender.
In February director Bryan Singer revealed via his Instagram account that Smit-McPhee was cast in X-Men: Apocalypse as a young Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler, who was previously played by Scottish actor Alan Cumming in X-Men 2. In a recent interview with SuperHeroHype, Kodi Smit-McPhee revealed his thoughts on the audition process and the pressure to please comic-book purists.
When asked about the daunting task of taking over from Alan Cumming and playing a younger version, Smit-McPhee replied, “Because it is the Marvel Universe and X-Men and there are a lot of people expecting a lot of things, I did a huge amount »

Diamonds, rosé and Lady Gaga?! When it comes to visiting one of Lisa Vanderpump's restaurants, chances are you may just spot a Bravolebrity or even Jennifer Lawrence. Yes, Katniss really likes Giggy guys. But on Friday night at Pump in West Hollywood, a few lucky customers enjoyed drinks and dinner very close to a special guest. "Lady Gaga had dinner with her mom and Lisa Vanderpump at Pump last night," a source confirmed to E! News. "They spent around three hours chatting and eating. She was in a really good mood." In fact, fans were polite and didn't bother the trio during dinner. But trust us, all eyes were on the VIP guests who avoided paparazzi while »

There’s been talk of Bill Pullman’s return as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day 2 for a while, but now it’s finally official - although technically he can’t be president anymore, right?
