Simmons and the cast of Birdman, which took home the ensemble prize.Eddie Redmayne scoring the top male acting prize for The Theory Of Everything was perhaps less easy to see coming, especially in a year where Birdman's Michael Keaton has been winning so much hardware, but Redmayne is still an Oscar possibility, and it’s not as though he was a dark horse.In the TV world, Downton Abbey and Orange Is The New Black won the ensemble awards for drama and comedy, while House Of CardsKevin Spacey was best drama actor and Viola Davis best drama actress for How To Get Away With Murder.Here is the full list of winners:FilmOutstanding Performance By A Cast In »

Soon, the two men transporting a female prisoner across the country start to wonder if they’ll actually make it out alive...The main cast includes a blend of Tarantino old hands and those new to his films, with Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Michael Madsen and Channing Tatum on the roster alongside James Parks and Zoe Bell. »

Warner Bros. Aims For The Jetsons Again

13 hours ago

Despite the cartoon residents of Hanna-Barbera’s future-set world staunchly resisting all attempts to reimagine them for the big screen, Warner Bros. just won’t let go of the idea of a Jetsons film. The studio has now hired writer Matt Lieberman – no stranger to working on animated movies for the company after producing drafts of a new Scooby-Doo pic – to tackle the tough job.We say tough because this is a nut that producers, studio executives and filmmakers have been trying to crack for years now. Despite a seemingly attractive proposition – known brand, family-friendly attitude, plenty of futuristic fun to be had in the right hands – George Jetson and the rest of the space-age answer to The Flintstones have been piloting their flying car through nearly two decades of development hell, flitting between straight cartoon attempts and even talk of Robert Rodriguez trying to turn the idea into a live-action film. »

13 hours ago

Given the people behind the cameras – producers Jonah Nolan, Lisa Joy, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk, and some of those who will appear before them (Anthony Hopkins, James Marsden and Evan Rachel Wood to name but three), it’s hardly surprising that HBO would push the new version of Westworld into series production as quickly as it did. With a new image of Ed Harris from the show online, Entertainment Weekly has talked to Nolan and Joy about their vision for the show.This being a co-production of a Nolan and Abrams, they’re careful not to give away too much. But they do explain the appeal of taking on a concept originated by Michael “Jurassic Park” Crichton four decades ago. “What you feel in the film is there’s this larger world that he barely has time to explore. It leaves you breathless. Westworld goes from one fucking massive idea to the next, »

13 hours ago

With American Sniper still ruling the Us box-office roost, there were mixed fortunes for some new arrivals, Mortdecai most notably, all of which had to put up with unfavourable reviews. Still, nothing managed to unseat Bradley Cooper from the top slot, as Sniper took in an impressive $64.3 million this weekend, staying strong and sailing past the $200 million mark at the domestic box office alone. Given its limited opening in 2014, it could end up as one of the most profitable films of last year, as well as a record-breaker in 2015.Second place went to Jennifer Lopez’s latest cinematic outing, steamy thriller The Boy Next Door. Despite reviews lambasting its overcooked flavour, the movie managed to open with $15 million, which was ahead of expectations and a solid return on a $4 million budget.
