32 minutes ago

Sneak Peek new images of "Gone Girl" actress Emily Ratajkowski, supporting the latest simsuit campaign from Austalian designers Amore + Sorvete, photographed by Derek Kettela:

"I've gotten over the fact I've got no privacy," said Ratajkowski. "This is not the right way to think, politically - that you 'have nothing to hide'...

"...but I always hated when I was growing up how people would really freak out about paparazzi following them.

"It's like, 'Well that's the job and the profession that you're in.'

"I think I've done enough nudity now...Like, if someone asked me to do it now, I'd probably say no."

"I have some serious criteria for what I'm looking for in a role which has really fucked me. The ones that I really want have to be a really interesting script and story and usually the girl is ugly.

"'Justice League Dark' is what it sounds like," said Creative Director Mike Carlin. 

"It’s the dark side of justice. A group of supernatural heroes who band together loosely to take on occult threats, supernatural threats - threats that the real 'Justice League' may be powerless against.

"The mainstream heroes are not the right guys for the job. These are not guys who go to meetings and sit around a table. They kind of appear and disappear when needed."

"It's a 'Justice League' movie, but it’s not," said Producer James Tucker. "They don’t look like your typical superheroes. »

"He has a vibrancy as 'Wednesday' that could have gone so many different ways in other actors’ hands, but has such a specificity and reality, despite the situation at hand."

"...in 'American Gods', a war is brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of »

"Trainspotting 2" Revealed

25 July 2016 10:18 AM, PDT

Sneak Peek the first teaser footage from Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting 2", written by Oscar-nominated writer John Hodge

Boyle has reunited with the first film's original cast/crew.

"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "There’s always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2'... 

"The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to make sure you don’t disappoint people. That will be the only criteria..."

The original UK-lensed black comedy feature released in 1996, was based on the novel of the same name by author Irvine Welsh, following a group of heroin addicts in a late 1980's economically depressed area of Edinburgh, Scotland and their passage through life.

Beyond drug addiction, other themes in the film include an exploration of urban poverty and squalor. »

"Woody Woodpecker" Wraps

Production has now wrapped in Vancouver on writer/director Alex Zamm's CG-live-action film "Woody Woodpecker", based on the famous Walter Lantz cartoon character, starring Timothy OmundsonThaila AyalaGraham Verchere and Toby Walters:

'Woody Woodpecker' was created in 1940 by storyboard artist Ben "Bugs" Hardaway, who laid the groundwork for 'Bugs Bunny' and 'Daffy Duck' @ Warner Bros. in the late 1930's.

The 'anthropomorphic' acorn woodpecker cartoon character soon appeared in theatrical short films produced by the Walter Lantz animation studio...

Woody's character and design would evolve over the years, from an insane bird with an unusually garish design to a more refined look.

Woody was originally voiced by actor Mel Blanc, who was succeeded by Ben Hardaway and later by Grace Stafford, the wife of producer Walter Lantz.

Woody Woodpecker cartoons were first broadcast on TV in the 1957 cartoon series, "The Woody Woodpecker Show »

The "Black Widow" Solo Movie

25 July 2016 6:32 AM, PDT

"Avengers" director Joss Whedon is keen to return to the Marvel Studios fold, to direct a "Black Widow" solo feature, starring actress Scarlett Johansson, reprising her role as Russian female spy 'Natasha Romanoff':

"I think that character really is very interesting and very earthbound," said Whedon, "so it’s the kind of action that I got to do less of with somebody like 'Thor' or 'The Vision'.

"When you get into your ‘Superman’ territory it’s harder to maintain the gritty action that the Russo brothers do so brilliantly and she’s got that kind of thing...

"...do a good, paranoid, ‘John le Carré on crack’ sort of thing. That would be really fun."

"Scarlett Johansson is just delightful. She works really hard...spends most of her time cracking me up, so it would be a fun shoot."

Johansson's Black Widow currently appears on screen in Marvel Studios »
