This trailer for Cinderella spoils even more of the film than the first one

16 December 2014 8:27 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Kenneth Branagh is a brilliant filmmaker. If you have never seen Henry V or Dead Again, you are missing out on some awesome movies. In recent years, he has switched to more mainstream directing with movies like Thor and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Neither lives up to his prior filmography, but I still had hope for his live action take on Cinderella. When the first trailer for Cinderella debuted, I was immediately struck by the fact it shows everything about the film. Fans of the Disney »

Celebrity Showdown: Jennifer Lawrence vs. Christian Bale

14 December 2014 5:25 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This weekend, Christian Bale's Exodus: Gods and Kings finally dethroned Jennifer Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 from the box office top spot after three weeks of dominance.

Exodus took home $24.5 million in its debut – nowhere near Mockingjay's $121.8 million – but still, impressive nonetheless. Now it's time to see which star comes out on top in our Et Celebrity Showdown.

Lawrence and Bale are two of the biggest names in Hollywood, and both have similar reputations for being versatile actors who can seamlessly transition between starring in big budget blockbusters or headlining small, independent dramas.

Video: Christian Bale Takes You Behind the Scenes of Exodus: Gods and Kings

They starred together in the 2013 crime caper American Hustle, they have both won Oscars and despite their ages – Bale is 40 while Lawrence is 24 – they have both had acclaimed careers filled with explosive and celebrated performances. So who has the edge when it comes to this Celebrity Showdown »

Jude Law and Kevin MacDonald: Black Sea interview

4 December 2014 11:14 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Star Jude Law and director Kevin MacDonald on shooting submarine-based thriller Black Sea...

As Jude Law and director Kevin MacDonald walked into the room ahead of our interview to discuss the film Black Sea (now in cinemas), Jude Law must have been saying something he would not like me to hear. I know this because of the very first thing he said to me.

Jude Law: Are journalists like policemen? You know how the Queen thinks the whole world smells of new paint, and policemen think everyone behaves, does everybody just fall silent around journalists?

They do seem to, actually. But please, go on. Don't let me interrupt you.

Kevin MacDonald: I think a journalist's best tool is to be silent themselves.

[Pause] How much of your process is by instinct, and how much is by process, whether that's deciding on the accent or where the camera will be positioned, »

The fairytale comes to life in Cinderella trailer

19 November 2014 7:47 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Where would Cinderella be without her glass slippers and enchanted ball gown?  It makes sense that Disney would recruit famed fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz to photograph Lily James and create the poster for the live-action Cinderella, making the belle of the ball look like she's just exited a magazine fashion spread.

Candy-coloured costumes, glittering glass slippers, and a haute couture evil stepmother in the form of Cate Blanchett are just some of the things to fall in love with in the first trailer for the fairytale film.  The classic magic and makeover tale updates the 1950 animated movie right down to the pumpkin carriage and Cinderella’s mousy pals, all courtesy of a certain fairy godmother played by a blonde Helena Bonham Carter.  It’s the latest character in Carter’s wheelhouse of eccentric and often musical ladies, and it’s a niche that suits her well.

From executive producer David S. Goyer and showrunner Daniel Cerone, Constantine is based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC ComicsJohn Constantine (Matt Ryan) is a seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult, armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wicked wit, but his soul is already damned to hell.  Along with trying to find a loophole out of that, Constantine begrudgingly fights to save the soul of others, with the help and guidance of long-time friend Chas (Charles Halford), an intuitive with heightened senses named Zed (Angélica Celaya), and a morally ambiguous guardian angel known as Manny (Harold Perrineau).

London Stage Star and Olivier Henry V Leading Lady Asherson Dead at Age 99

4 November 2014 4:56 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Henry V' Movie Actress Renée Asherson dead at 99: Laurence Olivier leading lady in acclaimed 1944 film (image: Renée Asherson and Laurence Olivier in 'Henry V') Renée Asherson, a British stage actress featured in London productions of A Streetcar Named Desire and Three Sisters, but best known internationally as Laurence Olivier's leading lady in the 1944 film version of Henry V, died on October 30, 2014. Asherson was 99 years old. The exact cause of death hasn't been specified. She was born Dorothy Renée Ascherson (she would drop the "c" some time after becoming an actress) on May 19, 1915, in Kensington, London, to Jewish parents: businessman Charles Ascherson and his second wife, Dorothy Wiseman -- both of whom narrowly escaped spending their honeymoon aboard the Titanic. (Ascherson cancelled the voyage after suffering an attack of appendicitis.) According to Michael Coveney's The Guardian obit for the actress, Renée Asherson was "scantly »

Which is the greatest British film in history? No one seems to be in agreement

11 October 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Best British movies of all time? (Image: a young Michael Caine in 'Get Carter') Ten years ago, Get Carter, starring Michael Caine as a dangerous-looking London gangster (see photo above), was selected as the United Kingdom's very best movie of all time according to 25 British film critics polled by Total Film magazine. To say that Mike Hodges' 1971 thriller was a surprising choice would be an understatement. I mean, not a David Lean epic or an early Alfred Hitchcock thriller? What a difference ten years make. On Total Film's 2014 list, published last May, Get Carter was no. 44 among the magazine's Top 50 best British movies of all time. How could that be? Well, first of all, people would be very naive if they took such lists seriously, whether we're talking Total Film, the British Film Institute, or, to keep things British, Sight & Sound magazine. Second, whereas Total Film's 2004 list was the result of a 25-critic consensus, »

Dench Joins Cumberbatch In "Richard III"

21 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Judi Dench is set to play Cecily, Duchess of York opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of The BBC's upcoming TV adaptation of Shakespeare's "Richard III".

The telemovie will be part of the second series of "The Hollow Crown," following on from 2012's successful four telemovie adaptations of Shakespeare's historical plays. That series, starring the likes of Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston and Ben Whishaw, adapted "Richard II," "Henry IV Part 1," "Henry IV Part 2" and "Henry V".

"The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses" will adapt the other famed historical tetralogy of Shakespeare - the three parts of "Henry VI" and "Richard III". One difference this time out is that the telemovies will be trilogy with "Henry VI" being shrunk from a three-part play into a two-part telemovie.

Tom Sturridge ("On the Road," "The Boat That Rocked") has been cast as Henry VI in both parts of that production. »

The Sun reports that the £1m commercial, the most expensive in the series history, used CGI technology and hundreds of extras to give the ITV talent show a Westeros feel.

Rallying her troops, Mel B is heard to roar: Things are about to get loud! Sort of puts you in mind of the battle speech from Henry V, doesnt it?

Films paid for almost entirely by a wealthy(ish) benefactor

31 July 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Without the help of some brave investors, or the pockets of their makers, the following films would never have existed...

It's now a fairly common mantra that you'd be a fool to put up all of your own personal money into a feature film. By all means invest, but share the risk, or throw a few quid at Kickstarter.

Paying for the bulk of the negative/hard drive yourself, and leaving your own assets exposed? Utter lunacy.

Not that anyone told this lot...

The Passion Of The Christ Paid for by: Mel Gibson

For some time, Mel Gibson had, alongside his acting roles, been heavily invested in his production company, Icon. As such, he had two significant ways to earn money, and he needed both of them when it came to making The Passion Of The Christ.

This is the kind of film that studios run a mile from. All »

Before 2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, married screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver’s last screenplay credit was 1997′s The Relic. What a difference a few years make. Today, Rise sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters, with a screenplay that Jaffa and Silver co-penned with Mark Bomback. But Dawn is just the tip of the iceberg.
