Ansel Elgort Describes the Impact ‘Fault in Our Stars’ Had on His Career: ‘I Got Lucky’

16 August 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2013 remake of “Carrie” marked a number of firsts for Ansel Elgort. It was his movie debut, after having survived seven auditions to play Chloë Grace Moretz’s unlucky prom date. “They said they wanted someone like Alex Pettyfer for the role,” he says. “Somehow I ended up getting it.”

Mark Williams & Sara Hirakawa for Variety

The Toronto shoot was the first time Elgort lived away from home, an experience that resembled college. “They gave me a little apartment. I got to go grocery shopping myself.” And he learned the secret language of a movie set. “People talking about craft, I thought they were talking about mac and cheese,” he says. “I didn’t know any of the terms.”

Now 22, Elgort could graduate with a diploma in movie stardom. In the last three years, he has appeared in a studio franchise (“Divergent”) and the drama “Men, Women & Children,” directed by Jason Reitman. »

Young Hollywood: Today’s Stars Have More Options, But Less Privacy

16 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On his first trip to New York three years ago, Vine star Cameron Dallas learned an important lesson: It’s never a good idea to invite your Twitter followers into your hotel room. It was a cold night, and two of his social-media-savvy groupies — twin girls — had been sending him messages on Twitter saying they were camped on the sidewalk outside. Dallas, 18 at the time, gave them his floor number and told them to come up. But after taking selfies in the hall, the twins stormed his room.

“They were like, ‘Can we watch you sleep?’ ” recalls Dallas. “I was stunned.” He finally had to physically drag them back into the hall. “They were grabbing onto the doors,” he says. “I really had to pull.”

To a degree, today’s new generation of young stars — whether discovered on the big screen or on YouTube — faces the same challenges that Jodie Foster, Anne Hathaway »

Suicide Squad Brings Out the Biggest and the Definitely the Baddest Supervillains, Including Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto

4 August 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Arriving a mere five months after Batman v Superman, a DC Comics epic as vaultingly joylss as a memorial chapel in Valhalla, Suicide Squad at least has some rumbling, crunchy kick - and, amid a sprawling, grungy cast, a terrific Margot Robbie. To begin with: Henry Cavill's Superman is still dead, or at any rate in no mood to be seen soaring through the air, letting sunbeams and shadow dapple and dance in and out of his magnificently creviced chin. His absence, which I suspect is more petulance than anything, leaves the country vulnerable to terrorists, illegal immigrants and »

Four films that predicted the rise of Donald Trump

2 August 2016 4:53 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Citizen Kane to Gangs of New York, cinema has been warning of the inexorable rise of the Republican candidate for years

Donald Trump has been in a Woody Allen movie, a Home Alone sequel and Zoolander. The screenwriter Bob Gale admitted villain Biff Tannen – the bully who strikes it rich and builds a “huge” tower named after himself in Back to the Future 2 – was modelled on Trump. Meryl Streep went orange face for a charity gala in New York and Johnny Depp gave his best performance in years as the Donald in a Funny or Die sketch.

Trump is ubiquitous. Should he win in November, Donald J Trump will be the first internet meme to become president. He’s even in movies that he isn’t in. Here are four cinematic avatars which predicted the resistible rise of the Trumpster.

Ansolo And Maxum Strike A Balance With “Yin Yang”

29 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ansolo’s Doorn Records debut sees him return to his 2015 sound. The Actor-turned-dj/producer turned out a less-than-compelling release in the form of “Home Alone” earlier in the month, but has collaborated with Toronto-based Maxum on a respectable piece of progressive house titled “Yin Yang.”

A gravelly bass line is accompanied by a crisp synth melody early on, as the arrangement builds up layer by layer. Unlike typical progressive house tracks that cater to the short attention span of entry-level music fans, the song follows a gradual, tasteful transition before opening up into a high-energy, main stage-friendly section.

At this point, it’s unclear whether Ansolo has decided to stick with his stage name instead of releasing music as Ansel Elgort, but for what “Yin Yang” is, the shoe certainly fits.

Listen to his Maxum collaboration above and let us know what you think by making a trip down to the comments section. »

Ansel Elgort First Released Edm Music Under a Pseudonym Because He Didn't Want to 'Use My Name to Book Gigs'

Earlier this month, the crossover star released his new electronic single, "Home Alone." And while it's the first song he's released under his given name, he's actually been recording music and playing Edm festivals including Electric Zoo under the pseudonym "Ansolo" for a couple years.

Great Job, Internet!: Decades after Home Alone, tarantulas still freak Daniel Stern out

27 July 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Maryland-born character actor and voice-over legend Daniel Stern can look back on a career filled with accomplishments. In a very competitive industry, he has worked steadily in TV and film since 1979, not to mention countless radio commercials. His credits include such well-regarded films as City Slickers, Diner, and Breaking Away. The man narrated six seasons of The Wonder Years, for crying out loud. But, to much of the movie-watching world, Stern will always be Marv, the lanky, dimwitted burglar who lets out a scream for the ages when Macaulay Culkin places a tarantula on his face in 1990’s John Hughes-scripted Home Alone. If a video posted to Stern’s official (if underutilized) YouTube channel is any indication, the actor has come to peace with this legacy, if “come to peace” means that he still lets out a blood-curdling shriek at the very sight of a tarantula.

Home Alone's Daniel Stern Recreates Marv's Famous Tarantula Scene

26 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Marv must be feeling nostalgic! Home Alone star Daniel Stern, who famously played robber Marv in the classic Christmas movie, took to Facebook to recreate one of the movie's most famous scene: the moment when Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) puts his brother's tarantula on Marv's face. The hilarious scene has Marv screaming in such a high octave that it almost seemed impossible for any person to accomplish, but shrieked he did before throwing it on his partner in crime's face (Harry, played by Joe Pesci). Unfortunately, in Stern's remake we don't have Pesci, but all these years later Stern was able to prove he still has the pipes to scream the same way his character once did. With his wife »

5 Other Movie Franchises That Crashed Onto Television

21 July 2016 5:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

News this week came in that the final planned Divergent Series movie would be skipping the theaters and go direct to television/DVD.  It’s a rare move for such a major studio franchise to make, and it got me to thinking about other movie series that fizzled and did the same.  Come inside to check out a history of downward sliding franchises! 

If I come off sounding a bit harsh about all this, it’s mostly due to the fact that it’s such a bizarre situation.  It’s been awhile since a studio franchise had to dropped down to direct-to-television and it’s not a good thing.  Sure, Lionsgate is trying to spin the information that it’s part of a planned way to jumpstart a spin-off TV series...but the reality is this isn’t how they wanted The Divergent Series to end.  

It’s a failure, »

Mila Kunis Calls Ex Macaulay Culkin's Fans 'Abnormal': 'They Didn't Know How to React' to Him

While Mila Kunis is used to the attention that comes with being a celebrity, she maintains that ex Macaulay Culkin has to deal with a much different - and more intense - breed of fame. During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday, the Bad Moms star told the host that during her eight-year relationship with the Home Alone star, she watched him encounter "abnormal" fans. "He was huge so you couldn't walk down the street with him," she explained of the early years of their romance, which began in 2001. "He always had this weird [attraction]; fans would just scream »

Macaulay Culkin Slams Tabloids Over Heroin Addiction Reports

19 July 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Child star Macaulay Culkin has disappeared from Hollywood’s spotlight, but there’s one thing he wants the world to know — he’s not a heroin addict. “I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever,” the “Home Alone” star told The Guardian. “The thing that bugged me was tabloids wrapping it all in this weird guise of concern. No, you’re trying to shift papers.” Culkin has been acting since the age of four and the obsession with his life hasn’t died down much since then.

Macaulay Culkin: "I Was Not Pounding Six Grand of Heroin Every Month"

19 July 2016 5:39 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Macaulay Culkin has emerged from his notoriously private life to put the rumors to rest.  "No, I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever," the 35-year-old former child star declared to The Guardian.  Despite being a fixture of the silver screen throughout the early 1990s with pop culture classics like Home AloneMy Girl and Richie Rich, Culkin retreated from the spotlight by the time he was just 14. Despite resurfacing for projects scattered throughout the next decade, the actor never returned to quite the level of stardom he had achieved as an adolescent. Still, his seclusion from Hollywood, an arrest for drug possession, a two-year teenage »

Ansel Elgort’s “Home Alone” Isn’t His Strongest Release

12 July 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I wouldn’t include NYC-based Ansel Elgort in the list of actors-turned-DJs who disingenuously sought to capitalize on the Edm craze, but his new song almost makes me think otherwise. “Home Alone” marks his first release under his real name, but this is one of those rare cases in which I would have recommended that he share the track through an anthropomorphic junk food alter ego instead.

Home Alone” comes across as an attempt to ride the fine line between melodic trap and future bass – but from an artist who seemingly lacks the production expertise necessary for either. Lyrically, it sounds like the official anthem of overly sensitive guys who are trying to find a girl to bring home from the bar after the first and second-string picks have already left.

Elgort has typically released songs under the stage name Ansolo – or, in the case of his Pierce Fulton collaborations, »

Ansel Elgort's "Home Alone" Might Be the Song of the Summer

8 July 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Did Ansel Elgort just deliver the song of the summer? That's what many of his fans are asking after the 22-year-old-actor released "Home Alone" via SoundCloud at midnight Friday. The track serves as his vocal debut, which he wrote and produced himself. The song was released under his full name, rather than that of his musical alter ego, DJ Ansolo. "I'm so excited to begin this journey with you all," the Divergent actor tweeted after its release. Elgort's fans are listening to his electronic entry on repeat. "Dude This Is Awesome!" one listener wrote on SoundCloud. Another fan admitted, "I wasn't expecting this to be that good." "Home Alone" will be »
