This time around, we have the first trailer for the short horror comedy film, The Body, starring Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones, John Wick), an excerpt from Valancourt Books' special re-release of Michael McDowell's souther horror novel, Cold Moon Over Babylon (which is now being adapted for the big screen), and details on who will play the titular role for Fox and Warner Bros.

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Larry Cohen’s God Told Me To is Next Month’s Late Nite Grindhouse!

23 February 2015 8:17 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I am super psyched that we were able to grab the 4K restoration of Larry Cohen’s masterpiece, God Told Me To for our March Late Nite Grindhouse show. Come see what Time Out New York claims is one of the 100 best horror films.

God Told Me To is without question one of darkest, sharpest, oddest films on this list, a tale of serial murder, religious mania and alien abduction shot on some of mid-’70s New York’s least salubrious streets. Cohen deserves to be mentioned alongside Carpenter and Craven in the horror canon – this might be Cohen’s masterpiece!”

Oscar Predictions 2015: Who Will Win Best Actor?

19 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With the 2015 Oscars almost here, Moviefone will be releasing a set of staff predictions each day this week (in countdown fashion) for the four major categories. We kicked it off yesterday with Best Actress, and now turn our attention to a hotly-contested race: Best Actor.

We've already given you the beat on the 2015 Oscars race, so now let's break down our favorites to win the award. Here, we've listed the actors we expect to win, and then, more importantly, who we think should win.

Tim Hayne

Who Will Win: Eddie Redmayne. The actor's transformative performance as physics genius Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything" is, perhaps, the most talked about of the year, and it's already earned him a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award. The only person who could possibly upset the race at this point is Bradley Cooper, whose performance in "American Sniper" has been celebrated »

Home Alone's Catherine O'Hara recalls heartfelt Macaulay Culkin meeting

12 February 2015 7:13 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Catherine O'Hara has recalled a heartwarming meeting with former Home Alone co-star Macaulay Culkin, almost 25 years after the family comedy hit the big screen.

O'Hara played Culkin's mother in John Hughes's Christmas classic, and both reprised their roles for Hughes's sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York in 1992.

While promoting her new CBC Canadian sitcom Schitt's Creek on Watch What Happens Live, the star said: "I haven't seen him for years and years, but I saw him two years ago - a year-and-a-half-ago? - at a Martin Mull art opening, and he was coming out, and he went, 'Mommy!'

"And I said, 'Baby!'" she laughed.

The actress's husband, production designer Bo Welch, was so touched by the mini-reunion that he had to capture the moment on camera.

She continued: "My husband, who's usually cool about these things, was like, 'Okay, both of you get together, I'm getting a picture! »

10 February 2015 6:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Josh Stewart and Christopher Lloyd are starring in the supernatural revenge drama “Cold Moon” with shooting starting later this month in Louisiana, Variety has learned exclusively.

Griff Furst directs from a script he wrote with Jack Snyder, based on the 1980 novel “Cold Moon Over Babylon” by Michael McDowell (“Beetlejuice” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas”).

Suspicion falls on a duplicitous banker and his wealthy father, played by Stewart and Lloyd.

Watch: Michael Keaton Isn't Like 'Birdman' (Exclusive Interview)

9 February 2015 2:01 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

At 63, Michael Keaton is enjoying the attention that comes with hitting a challenging role out of the park. Look closely at his career, and you see a man who always paid attention to the details and pushed for more than the ordinary as he built his characters, no matter what the movie. During his long Sbiff Modern Master chat with Leonard Maltin, Keaton ranged from running around naked as a kid performing for his seven siblings, early standup at Catch a Rising Star and The Improv, which allowed him to "write little plays and perform, not asking permission," and comedies like "Night Shift," "Mr. Mom" and "Johnny Dangerously" to Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" (he'd love to take it to the stage) and drama "Clean and Sober."  He recalled how he surprised director Tim Burton with his wild and crazy take on "Beetlejuice" (yes, he'd still love to do a »

Actors in This Season’s Oscar Race Often Took Years to Hit With Voters

5 February 2015 2:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood has always been a place of dreams, built on the idea that anyone can become a star. That Cinderella story (or spotted-in-Schwab’s-drugstore story) is all part of the glamor that is Hollywood. And when looking at this year’s acting races, it seems the dream is more alive than ever.

Out of this year’s 20 acting nominees, nine are first-timers to the Academy Awards. The lead actor race features only one previous nominee, Bradley Cooper, among a group of freshmen. New faces like Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch managed to work their way into what may be the most competitive actor race ever.

Of course, none are overnight successes. Supporting actor frontrunner J.K. Simmons may not be a household name, but odds are audiences know his face from more than 20 years in TV (“Oz,” “Law & Order”) and films (“Juno,” “Spider-Man”). And though Rosamund Pike became the new It Girl thanks to “Gone Girl, »

Meeting Michael Keaton

Every year the Santa Barbara International Film Festival gives me the opportunity of spending two hours onstage with the recipient of its Modern Master Award. This year: Michael Keaton. I’d only spoken to him once many years ago, so I was eager to get to know him—in front of 2,000 people at the historic Arlington Theater. He didn’t disappoint. The man who brought Beetlejuice, Batman, and Birdman to life couldn’t be anything less than a bright, articulate, and dedicated actor. He’s also great fun to interview. One thing I wanted to set straight for my own satisfaction was how he chose his moniker. His given name is Michael John Douglas, and when it was pointed out that there was...

Emotions run high at Santa Barbara tribute to Michael Keaton

1 February 2015 9:57 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Barbara — Saturday night the Santa Barbara International Film Festival shook things up a bit with the annual Modern Master Award tribute, this year dedicated to "Birdman" star Michael Keaton. Colleagues and co-stars sent pre-recorded messages to honor the actor, emotions ran high at the end of the evening and the fest had a special surprise in store for moderator Leonard Maltin as well. First, the retrospective. It was a typical deep dive into a career, the highlights of which you can read in our recent series of interviews with the actor. Keaton was clearly overwhelmed by seeing things in this context as his "Multiplicity" co-star Andie MacDowell was on hand to present an introductory clip package of career highlights. "I feel like I'm gonna pass out," he said as he took the stage to begin the evening. Maltin noted Keaton's first scene from "Night Shift," as we hear the »

Michael Keaton says he was lucky to be a part of Batmania

28 January 2015 10:56 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton has been asked about a sequel to "Beetlejuice" enough times to surely be sick of it by now, because the thing has moved at such a glacial pace there just isn't much to be said. But his work in the original film came at a time when his career was really taking off, and playing in the expressionistic world of Tim Burton in both that film and the first two "Batman" movies was a wholly new and exciting experience for him. In one, he helped build a character from the ground up, while in the other, he found himself at the center of a raging pop culture tempest. Both roles are iconic in their own ways, and looking back, Keaton can — as ever — find nothing but gratitude for getting to be a part of it. "Batman" in particular was a personal landmark, a movie that grabbed »
