Watch the first 5 minutes of 'Low Down,' with John Hawkes and Elle Fanning

19 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Elle Fanning is super-excited about her next project: Halloween. She might be one of the hardest-working actresses in Hollywood—with four films in theaters in 2014, including the blockbuster Maleficent—but she's still only 16 and her Halloween costume is an elaborate production. "It's a secret," she says, when asked about her trick-or-treat dress-up plans. "But I'll give you some of my greatest hits: I was the Morton Salt Girl. I was Strawberry Shortcake. I've been a Barbie Statue of Liberty. I've been Mary Poppins. I was a Madame Alexander doll. I was a vampire, but that was like a very glamorous done-up vampire. »

Doctor Who series 8: everything we know about Missy so far

17 October 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Doctor Who series 8 draws towards its end, Andrew ticks off everything we've learned about Michelle Gomez's character, Missy, so far.

Warning: contains spoilers for Doctor Who series 8 up to and including Flatline.

The article will begin after a picture of Daphne The Spoiler Squirrel. Only if you're ready for spoiler chat should you scroll past Daphne. She won't be offended either way.

"Clara. My Clara, I chose well."

Empiricism and Steven Moffat series arcs. We meet again.

The line above, said at the end of tonight’s Doctor WHo episode, Flatline, strongly implies that Missy chose Clara for something, which ties in with the on-going plot strand about the ‘Woman in the shop’ who gave Clara the Doctor’s number. It doesn’t, of course, confirm that it was Missy in the shop, that she was involved, or indeed even that it was Clara who was chosen.

‘Miss Meadows’ Trailer: Katie Holmes Is a “Pulp Fiction Mary Poppins”

14 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Thought billionaire playboys made for unlikely vigilantes? You haven’t met Miss Meadows, the heroine of Karen Leigh Hopkins‘ offbeat indie thriller of the same title. Played by Katie Holmes, this prim and proper elementary school looks so sugar-sweet, bluebirds literally follow her around while she tap-dances down the street. But what her community doesn’t know […]

Katie Holmes is a Cute Little Killer in Second 'Miss Meadows' Trailer

14 October 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Kind of a Pulp Fiction, Mary Poppins." That line in the new trailer for the quirky thriller Miss Meadows sums it up rather perfectly, but somehow we don't think the film will measure up to either of those revered films. Katie Holmes plays a wholesome, charming school teacher who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty when the opportunity calls for it. Delivering justice with a tiny little pistol she keeps for her purse, she's ready to keep the bad guys away from her children and the nice town in which she lives. But can she keep her secret from the local law enforcement, including the sheriff played by James Badge Dale? Watch! Here's the new trailer for Karen Leigh Hopkins' Miss Meadows from YouTube: Watch the first trailer for Miss Meadows, starring Katie Holmes, right here. Miss Meadows is written and directed by Karen Leigh Hopkins (writer of »

6 things we saw on set at Strictly Come Dancing's Movie Week

13 October 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A staggering 1.6 million people have applied for tickets to see Strictly Come Dancing live at Elstree Studios this year - which means that Digital Spy was ridiculously excited to be asked along to watch Movie Week unfold right before our eyes on Saturday (October 11).

And while we all saw Frankie Bridge's incredible paso, Donny Osmond's phobia of scores under 5 and Jennifer Gibney hanging up her dancing shoes, here's some things you didn't see on BBC One...

1. Wardrobe issues

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman looked absolutely spiffing in their garb on both shows. However, comfortable they were not. Before Strictly went live on Saturday, they both walked out to say hello and wish everyone luck. Well, we say walked. Clauds hobbled erratically all over the dancefloor, tugging at her behind at least 10 times and declaring to the whole of the studio that her (several pairs of) Spanx were chaffing up a storm. »

Whether she’s the Master (or Mistress if you prefer), Mary Poppins, or just another in a long line of Moffat’s mysterious ladies. until revealed...

Movie objects that deserve their own spin-off

9 October 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If the Annabelle doll can get a The Conjuring spin-off, what other movie objects are primed for future stardom, ponders James?

Move your mind back through the mists of time to summer 2013 and you may recall the moment that The Conjuring manifested itself in movie theatres. James Wan's film fictionalisation of an astoundingly creepy case handled by American paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) was a huge critical and commercial hit. In fact, earning over $300 million off the back of a budget estimated around $20 million, it's one of the highest-grossing horror flicks of all time.

Naturally, a sequel was ordered and that's due to surface and scare us all over again just before Halloween 2015. Before that, though, audiences itching for more of this particular world (and threatening other worlds) have something novel to enjoy while they wait for the return of the Warrens. »

Nyff 2014: ‘Eden’ Is a Beautifully Flighty Imagined Chronicle of French Electronic Dance Music

6 October 2014 3:41 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Eden is a film about passion, at least at first. It’s about youth and the thrill of finding community in art, the music that takes over your soul. It’s about dancing, drugs, and sex. It’s Almost Famous and Finding Llewyn Davis, sort of. By the time it ends it’s covered over two decades of dreams and successes, setbacks and failures, all of the above and nothing at all. Mia Hansen-Love‘s fourth feature begins in the early 1990s. A French teenager named Paul (Felix de Givry) and his friends are on the cusp of falling deeply in love with garage, the genre of electronic dance music that grew up at Paradise Garage in New York City. These are early days, with raves held in caves and disused submarines hanging around the French countryside. Paul has a moment of revelation under some trees in the early dawn, his »

Oscar Season Gift From The Academy As Stunning Hollywood Costume Exhibit Premieres At Future Site Of Movie Museum

2 October 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

It may not be the Grand Opening celebration that the Academy of Motion Pictures Art & Sciences is going to be throwing when they  launch the long-awaited Academy  Museum Of Motion Pictures at some point in 2017 as is now planned,  but the Los Angeles debut of the much-acclaimed Hollywood Costume exhibit imported by the Academy  from the Victoria And Albert Museum in London  is really  something to see.  The Academy’s Ellen Harrington told me at Wednesday night’s opening event (in the space at Wilshire and Fairfax  that will eventually become the Acad’s Museum ) that it took them months just  to get it in the kind of shape needed to house this remarkable exhibit celebrating the art of costume design and its vital importance, in so many ways, to the art  of movies.  With over 150 costumes including 40 newly added ones just for the Los Angeles version this is an »

5 Things We Learned About 'Men, Women & Children' From Jason Reitman

2 October 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

According to Jason Reitman, his new film "Men, Women & Children" is about the Internet as much as "Juno" was about teen pregnancy, or "Thank You For Smoking" was about cigarettes; really, he's interested in exploring people, not timely issues.

Adapted from Chad Kultgen's 2011 novel, the movie follows a group of Texas high schoolers and their parents, focusing on the many ways the Internet has changed how we interact with each other. And despite our myriad of devices, ultimately, "Men, Women & Children" is about all the ways we're seemingly unable to communicate with one another.

Fortunately though, Reitman and "Men, Women & Children" star Jennifer Garner were much more forthcoming at a recent press conference held during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Here are five things we learned from the two about the Internet-age ensemble drama.

The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

30 September 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and sponsored by Swarovski, this ticketed exhibition »

What Should Nashville Do About Hayden Panettiere’s Real Life Pregnancy?

24 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Ah, Nashville. We watch you for the great music and Connie Britton‘s luminescent skin, but we continue to tune in to see how you’ll one-up yourself in terms of ridiculous plot lines. Seriously, what can you possibly add to a nighttime soap opera that’s already featured a country star in a coma, a fake miscarriage made more convincing with pig’s blood, and a murder-suicide carried out in order to prevent a sex tape from leaking? The only two possible answers here are a) a pregnancy of dubious paternity or b) the arrival of a heretofore unacknowledged evil twin.

Lucky for us, Hayden Panettiere is pregnant in real life, and her character, Juliette Barnes, had some drunk sex with evil Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson), the nasty record label exec who is most definitely not her boyfriend — how could she cheat on Avery (Jonathan Jackson)??? He became so likable! »

Alison Owen, Debra Hayward Launch Monumental Pictures To Produce Films & TV

24 September 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Prolific UK-based producers Alison Owen and Debra Hayward have joined forces to launch Monumental Pictures. The new production outfit will focus on both film and TV content with the aim to “keep the costs small, but the vision big,” says Saving Mr Banks producer Owen. Long-time friends and colleagues, the pair last shared a credit on 1998’s Oscar-winning Elizabeth, but Owen says they’ve been chasing the same material for so long, “we’re both exhausted from competing with each other. Ultimately, I could see the only way to beat Debra was to join her.”

Owen’s most recent credits include last year’s Mary Poppins origin story Saving Mr Banks, produced through her Ruby Films shingle which will now transition to become Monumental. She also exec produced current release The Giver. Previous titles she’s produced include Jane Eyre, The Other Boleyn Girl and multiple Emmy-winner Temple Grandin. She »

Fiddler on the Roof is 50

22 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Fifty years ago today, Fiddler on the Roof opened on Broadway and was an instant success with audiences and also won 9 Tony Awards including the big kahuna Best Musical. It would become the longest running musical in Broadway history until it was surpassed by that crop of 80s mega-musicals from Britain. The musical has been performed countless times since in stage productions all over the world and four revivals on Broadway (76, 81, 90, 04). 

Best Actor nominee Topol in "Fiddler on the Roof" (1971)

By 1971 there was a movie adaptation that was nominated for 8 Oscars including Best Picture and I don't believe we've ever discussed it. That ain't right. I've been thinking about 60s and 70s musicals a lot recently due to that book "Roadshow!" and while the movie studios were definitely overinvested in the genre after the gargantuan back-to-back mega hits that were Mary Poppins and Sound of Music occassionally a hit would »
