Are These Really the Most Dateable Movie Characters?

3 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

So it's Valentine's Day and you get to go on a date with any modern movie character -- who do you pick? According to over 1,000 movie fans polled by Fandango, this year's most date-able movie characters have something in common: they're both Marvel superheroes and they both starred in the same 2015 movie: Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) topped the list, perhaps because they're both fierce fighters and seductively mysterious. (Well that, and he looks good with his shirt off and she looks good in tight black outfits. That doesn't hurt either.) Both Thor and Black Widow beat out some hefty competition in the form of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Captain America (Chris Evans) and James...

Diane Ladd Blasts Studios’ ‘Greed and Corruption’ for Pushing Leading Roles as Supporting

11 February 2016 1:29 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features and the Weinstein Company were criticized this year for promoting Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) and Rooney Mara (“Carol”), respectively, in the supporting actress category when both performances were arguably leading ones. In the end, the dust-up didn’t harm the campaigns; both actresses received supporting nominations — much to the dismay of actress Diane Ladd.

At the Aarp Movies for Grownups Awards earlier this week, where the “Joy” star received the best supporting actress honor, Ladd blasted the “greed and corruption” of forcing leading players into the supporting ranks, pushing out performances like her own.

“I was really upset and chagrined by the studios’ greed and corruption,” Ladd said. “I mean Rooney Mara, she won best actress in Cannes. Three people are stars in leading roles. They are the female lead and the star. So why are they in the supporting category?”

It’s unclear which of the »

11 February 2016 10:40 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Netflix

Of all the categories Netflix goes through, from its traditional genre mainstays, to bizarre things like “Films to Make You Think” (shouldn’t all films, in some way at least, do that?), to its seasonal bouts of “Films to Watch This Valentines/Halloween/Christmas”, etc, you really would think that it would have an Oscars category, somewhere to locate all the films containing Oscar winning performances, or to watch all the Best Picture winners available on the site, or to watch some of the visually striking film that might’ve won Best Cinematography, etc.

Alas, it doesn’t, so, to save you some precious searching time, here’s a list of some Oscar winners you can see on the site, in order to both build a bit of anticipation for 2016’s awards and to highlight some films you might’ve otherwise missed on there.

The 'Hardcore Henry' Trailer Is Unlike Anything You've Ever Seen

10 February 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Plenty of video games are now shot like movies, so why shouldn't movies be shot like video games? In the new trailer for the action thriller "Hardcore Henry," it doesn't take long to realize we are seeing the world as Henry, experiencing the action from a first-person Pov as he wakes up in some kind of futuristic science facility and is swept up in a mysterious adventure.

Here's the official synopsis from Stx Entertainment:

"Strap in. Hardcore Henry is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time: You remember nothing. Mainly because you've just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you should probably go get her back. Who's got her? His name's Akan (Danila Kozlovsky »

Morgan Freeman Discusses the Roles He Isn’t Offered at Aarp’s Movies for Grownups Awards

9 February 2016 5:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aarp hosted its 15th annual Movies for Grownups Awards on Monday night at the Beverly Wilshire — where it honored the performances of actors, actresses and filmmakers that contributed to older audience-centric productions in the past year.

The awards show was launched in 2002 by editors of Aarp the Magazine, who felt that the interests of audiences over age 50 weren’t adequately represented on-screen.

“Aarp drew attention to our demographic; they advocated for us,” said Aarp committee member and former studio exec Sherry Lansing as she introduced the event. “This event will be like no other. There will be no music to play you off during your acceptance speech. There will be no one waving a baton, telling you to wrap it up,” she joked. “You can take all the time you want, because you have earned it.”

The event’s greatest accolade, the career achievement award, was presented to two-time Oscar »

This year’s Oscar show “will be the most diverse ever,” producer David Hill told Variety on Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon.
