A Saturday surge carried Disney’s family movie “Frozen” to No. 1 at the U.S. box office this weekend, ending the two-week reign of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” Disney Animation’s 3D kids film was trailing Katniss and her cohorts after Friday, but families turned out in force Saturday and drove it to a $31.6 million three-day total. The Jennifer Lawrence sequel had a slim lead with $8 million after Friday, but fell behind on Saturday and wound up with $27 million for second. No one is too disappointed at Lionsgate; “Catching Fire” is a blockbuster, having taken in more than $336 »

French actor takes snowy Berlin in her stride as she wins prize at a European film awards dominated by The Great Beauty
The wet snow that fell on Berlin on Saturday evening had nothing on the froideur of Catherine Deneuve, in town to receive a lifetime achievement prize at the European film awards and not best pleased about it either. "Lifetime achievement – those are not good words," the 70-year-old French actor told the press before the ceremony. "To achieve life is to mean that you are dead. It's not an award you give to someone who is still alive."
Deneuve was honoured for an impressive 50-year back catalogue that stretches from roles in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Repulsion and Belle de Jour through to more recent work in the likes of Lars von Trier's Dancer in the Dark and François Ozon's Potiche. Along the way she has been »

Los Angeles Film Critics Awards winners 2013 to be posted here; see (way out there) predictions below The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (Lafca), which has been around since the early ’70s, will be selecting its winners and runners-up on Sunday, December 8, 2013, beginning at 10 a.m. Pt. We’ll be posting their choices here, as they’re announced. As usual, expect some overlapping with the choices of both the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review, which were announced earlier this week. That’s only normal. Having said that, the good thing is that in the last few years the Los Angeles Film Critics have gone their own way in several key categories, making the sort of daring and/or international choices that the now chiefly mainstream, Hollywood star-struck New York Film Critics used to make four decades ago — e.g., Liv Ullmann, Ingmar Bergman, Federico Fellini, »

Bradley Cooper gave big kisses at the afterparty for an American Hustle screening in NYC on Friday, planting one on his director, David O. Russell. Bradley looked dapper for the event, making a solo appearance after bringing his mom to the film's La screening earlier this month. Although costar Jennifer Lawrence wasn't in attendance, Bradley was joined by fellow castmates Amy Adams and Christian Bale, who made funny faces alongside his wife, Sibi Blazic. We recently sat down with Christian to talk about the film, and he told us that he originally had doubts about the casting of Jennifer, who plays his wife in the movie. "I was very concerned about her when she was cast because the character had never been written so young," he said, adding, "And I'm old enough to be Jennifer's dad." The '70s-set crime drama comes out on Dec. 13, but you can get a »

Every week, Vulture faces the big, important questions in entertainment and comes to some creative conclusions. This week, we remembered Paul Walker, questioned whether Jennifer Lawrence wasn't just pulling a Katniss on us, and griped about Mfa programs. You may have read some of these stories below, but you certainly didn’t read them all. We forgive you.Q: Was it just me or were there some weird moments in Catching Fire?A: It wasn't just you. Kyle Buchanan catalogued all of the unintentionally erotic moments as well as every single time Peeta screwed something up (poor Peeta). Q: How did Jennifer Lawrence become America's sweetheart?A: We're beginning to wonder if Jennifer Lawrence isn't just pulling a Katniss on us. Q: How will Paul Walker be remembered?A: Bilge Ebiri writes, "The tragic, awful, sudden death of Paul Walker reminds us that there are some actors who may not »

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the top movie at the U.S. box office since it opened three weeks ago, was No. 1 Friday, but its crown might be slipping. Lionsgate’s Jennifer Lawrence sequel took in $7.7 million from a market-high 4,168 theaters, beating out “Frozen,” which is in its second week and took in $6.8 million from 3,742 mainly-3D locations. But the Disney Animation kids film could well overtake it Saturday, when the family crowd comes out. “Frozen” should wind up with around $28 million, while “Catching Fire” is looking at roughly $27 million. On its current pace, “Catching Fire” will hit »

The Lafca (Los Angeles Film Critics Association) is inarguably an important critics prize in terms of influence and reach to AMPAS. Why? The answer is three fold. First, geography. Second, they're an institution having handed out prizes since 1975 (Dog Day Afternoon + One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was their inaugural best picture decision and their last tie ever for the top prize) Third, they don't stray too far from Oscar's own aesthetics which surely makes them more accessible to voters. In short they're more likely to gently nudge voters than shout bold statements at them. In their 38 year history to date they've only given their Best Film prize to movies that didn't end up competing for Best Picture 7 times.
Only Lafca Winners Not To Enjoy Oscar "Best Pic" Nods
Little Dorritt (1988)
Do The Right Thing (1989)
Leaving Las Vegas (1995, surely in the dread 6th position w/ Oscar)

1. "Skins": "Skins wasn't Hoult's first big role, but it was the first thing that made him a star in his teenage years. Showing off his dark side as Tony Stonem in the British teen drama "Skins," Hoult cemented himself as »
Though there’s normally a fairly agreed-upon shortlist of contenders for each Oscar category before the nominations are announced, every year has its fair share of surprises. More often than not, these occur in the Supporting Actor/Actress categories, and it could very well happen again this year. Though the general lack of well-written female characters tends to result in a thin crop of contenders for the Best Supporting Actress category, there are no doubt a number of excellent supporting female performances to thumb through in 2013. The contenders range from fresh newcomers to acting veterans, and the ever-popular Jennifer Lawrence has made a late surge thanks to David O. Russell’s American Hustle finally being unveiled. In this edition of Oscar Beat, we examine the current state of the Best Supporting Actress category. Read on after the jump.

We now have a totally different meaning for the words “Jingle Ball!” At the huge concert event in Los Angeles on Dec. 6, Miley put a holiday spin on her usual racy, twerk-filled performances. See all the sexy pics below!
For her performance at Kiis FM Jingle Bill in Los Angeles on Dec. 6, Miley Cyrus used her raunchy MTV VMAs performance as a template, but a made a few seasonal changes.

Tis the season… to be twerking? Yes, says Miley. The “We Can’t Stop” singer brought the usual sexiness and energy to her performance at Jingle Ball in La, but she also brought a lot of Christmas spirit — in a way only she could. »

Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire continued strongly as it started off its third weekend box office run with $7.7 million ahead of Disney's Frozen animation in second with $6.8 million.

Frozen from directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, has accumulated over $126.1 million worldwide, with $109.4 million earned from N. American venues. »
