'Birdman' leads Independent Spirit Awards Nominations

3 hours ago

Birdman scored six Independent Spirit Award nominations, the most of any film, when the nods were announced today, but for the most part the Spirit Awards spread the love around. Boyhood, Nightcrawler, and Selma each got five nominations, while Whiplash, a source of buzz since its debut at Sundance, received four. Though most of these films have Oscar hopes, the Spirit Awards have also honor films that haven't made much headway in the awards conversation, despite critical praise. For instance, the John Lithgow-Alfred Molina film Love Is Strange was nominated for Best Feature, and received four other nominations, »

4 hours ago

In 1942, he published a particularly difficult puzzle in the London Daily Telegraph, and invited those who could complete it in 12 minutes or less to apply for a job with his mysterious government outfit. One of those who passed the test was Joan Clarke, played by Keira Knightley. »

Frank Grillo's role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened a big door. Although he was only in about half an hour of the film, there's already rampant speculation about his return as the villainous Crossbones in Captain America: Civil War.

This is what Angelina Jolie does when she's nervous

24 November 2014 10:03 AM, PST

Angelina Jolie really, really, really wanted to direct Unbroken, the adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's 2010 bestseller. It's the true story of Louie Zamperini, the son of Italian immigrants who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics and fought in the U.S. Army Air Forces in World War II, when his plane went down over the Pacific. He survived the crash and spent 37 days adrift on a raft before Japanese troops took him to a Pow camp. There, he endured more than two years of near-relentless brutality. He survived that too, and went on both to forgive his captors and to run »

'Pan' First Look: Hugh Jackman sports a very twirlable mustache as the villainous Blackbeard

24 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST

Hugh Jackman is indeed playing a villainous pirate in the upcoming Peter Pan origin story from Warner Bros., but here’s the hook: He’s not Hook. Pan (out July 17) takes the J.M. Barrie mythos and shuffles the deck, outfitting Jackman with a flying ship and a diabolical Vandyke as the dreaded pirate Blackbeard, whose men have been kidnapping young wartime orphans—including a certain Peter (Levi Miller, left)—from their beds. Meanwhile, Captain Hook is neither a captain nor behooked, but played by Garrett Hedlund as a dashing Indiana Jones-like figure. Says director Joe Wright, “This isn’t exactly the Neverland story you know. »
