Andy Serkis on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: 'Caesar is Don Corleone now'

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andy Serkis reprises his role as primate revolutionary Caesar in this summer's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which moves on the story started in its 2011 predecessor. This time around there's no James Franco or Freida Pinto, but master of performance capture Serkis is back (with Jason Clarke and Keri Russell on human co-star duties) to drive the hotly-anticipated sequel.

Digital Spy spent some time with Serkis on the New Orleans set of Dawn to discuss the Matt Reeves-directed blockbuster.

Where does this film pick up from its predecessor?

At the end of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we were left in a situation where the virus had taken hold. We got the impression that humanity was under a great deal of threat - which is what happens. The virus spreads and we're imagining that about 90% of the world's population is decimated. There are surviving pockets of humans. »

10 March 2014 9:28 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

In the upcoming episode of Koffee with Karan, it’s the turn of rumoured couple Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur to bring their much talked about onscreen and off-screen Aashiqui to the couch. Despite Karan’s repeated attempts to get the duo to admit to a relationship, Aditya preferred to let his bromance with Yjhd co-star Ranbir take the spotlight while Shraddha spoke candidly about mentor Aditya Chopra and slapping herself out of the disappointment of her earlier films.

All that and more on the upcoming episode of Koffee with Karan Season 4 which airs on Star World on Sunday, 09 March 2014.

Snippets from the episode

Karan: Do you have an amicable and cordial relationship with Aditya Chopra now?

Shraddha: He is always going to be my mentor, always.

7 March 2014 9:08 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

From mainstream to parallel cinema, Koffee with Karan Season 4 has brought to us all kinds of people, stories and a lot more than just film talk. This episode made the line-up of the season even more interesting as the gorgeous ladies Freida Pinto and Nargis Fakhri talked about cross cultural stereotypes, filmy perceptions and everything fun!

Freida’s start with Slumdog Millionaire was a roaring success, and she is soaring high internationally since. She said that it obviously feels awesome, but at heart she is still the Mumbai girl who grew up watching Bollywood. “I was at an award function where I was presenting with Shah Rukh Khan. In that room full of people, I was looking for him. It shows that my roots are here in Mumbai. I felt so proud that after just one film I get to share the stage with him!” she exclaimed. Apparently, Freida’s »

Nargis Fakhri, Freida Pinto steam up Karan Johar's show; desire threesome with Deepika Padukone!

2 March 2014 11:40 PM, PST | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

It was wild and whacky, filled with sexual innuendos and laced with words ( p;butt cheek) that left Karan Johar red-faced and stuttering. Freida Pinto and Nargis Fakhri had a blast on 'Koffee With Karan' and the two gals, forthright and ballsy, socked it back to KJo with fun and vigour. So much so, that Karan Johar ended up calling Pinto as Pantand laughed his head off. There were revelations that were forthright.I grew up in a place where there were »

Forget being prim-n- propah. Forget being prudish.

Blake Lively Has the Best Seat in the House

12 February 2014 11:08 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Blake Lively popped up at the Michael Kors Fall 2014 runway show during New York Fashion Week on Wednesday. The actress was all smiles as she checked out the collection from her front-row seat alongside Freida Pinto and Rose Byrne, and she made sure to stop backstage to chat with the designer himself. It's the first glimpse we've gotten of Blake in a while - although we did get to see some throwback snaps of her as the class clown in her high school days. Lately, Blake has been hard at work as the spokeswoman for Gucci's Premiere fragrance and attended a press conference for the brand in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates last month. Soon, though, she may have to set aside her fashion responsibilities, as Blake will be returning to the set this Spring for the romance drama The Age of Adaline. She'll be playing the title character, »

24 January 2014 8:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By this point, every critic has had a chance to complain about the glut of blockbusters due to hit theaters in 2015, but this coming summer will also see the arrival of some pretty huge properties, most notably in science-fiction. To point out a few of the biggest contenders for box-office glory, we’re expecting comic-book sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, a revitalized Transformers installment, the Wachowski’s planet-traversing epic Jupiter Ascending, Marvel’s intergalactic caper Guardians of the Galaxy and, of course, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, a hotly-anticipated follow-up to the surprisingly thrilling 2011 reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Dawn picks up the narrative of intelligent ape Caesar (played through motion-capture by Andy Serkis) eight years after the events of the first film, during which Caesar, his mind permanently altered by a viral-based drug, exposed other apes to the same drug and led them »

Lutz's Hercules Massacred by Critics

10 January 2014 2:22 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kellan LutzThe Legend of Hercules’: New Summit release has 0% Rotten Tomatoes approval rating (photo: Gaia Weiss and shirtless Kellan Lutz in ‘The Legend of Hercules’) Starring Kellan Lutz, best known as the hunky and likable vampire Emmett in the Twilight movies, The Legend of Hercules opens today, January 10, 2014, in North America. That’s the good news for Kellan Lutz fans. Now, the bad news: The Legend of Hercules isn’t about to become the next Spartacus — or even the next Gladiator. “The only thing epic about The Legend of Hercules is what a failure it is,” writes Stephanie Merry in the Washington Post, while Newsday‘s Rafer Guzman’s complains that “this painfully feeble version of the strongman story fails on every level, from Lutz’s wooden acting to the styrofoam special effects.” In fact, out of 35 reviews, the Summit Entertainment / Lionsgate Pictures release has a 0% approval rating »
