On Brad Pitt's Birthday: Watch His Super Cute First Big Break!

18 December 2011 10:29 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Brad Pitt turns 48 years old on Sunday, which to us underscores two things: One, the guy looks good for his age; and two, he's been at this Hollywood superstar thing for a long time.

The Oklahoma native's career is as strong as ever. He earned his fourth Golden Globe nomination on Thursday for his work in "Moneyball," an honor that is a major addition to the critics and festival awards he's been receiving for both that role and his turn in "The Tree of Life." But because birthdays are a day to reflect, we'd rather concentrate on the major roles that brought him to this illustrious point.

Pitt began taking guest turns and small parts in TV series and movies in 1987 after moving out to Hollywood. His first substantial break came when he starred in an arc on the soap opera "Dallas" as Randy, Charlie's tempting boyfriend. Check out his »

The Conspirator Blu-ray Review: Detailed Portrait of History’s Forgotten Players

24 October 2011 12:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

There is good reason why conspiracy theorists have so much fun with the Abraham Lincoln/JFK question (based on some spooky similarities in both men’s presidencies and assassinations) – aside from the kind of spooky facts that would have Oliver Stone exploding with apoplectic outrage – the story is also one overflowing with intrigue. But rather than focus on the events of the assassination, or even at the wider influence Lincoln had as an innovative leader and civil rights exponent, Robert Redford‘s The Conspirator – the first feature from the American Film Company – focuses on a comparatively smaller, but no less important story in Mary Surratt’s trial as a co-conspirator in the plot to assassinate Lincoln.

Surratt (played by Robin Wright) was implicated in the plot after she gave rooms to John Wilkes Booth and his cohorts (including her own son, John), which ultimately lead to her arrest, imprisonment and trial. »

Quaid, who purchased the place 25 years ago tells the publication he’s selling up in Montana so he can pursue his new surfing hobby in Hawaii. »

River Phoenix's final unfinished film to get theatrical release

19 October 2011 8:36 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Get ready to experience something that hasn't occurred in 18 years: a new River Phoenix movie will soon be coming to a movie theater near you.

The former child star passed away in 1993 and left one unfinished movie behind. Phoenix had been shooting "Dark Blood," an apocalyptic drama set on a nuclear testing site, before his death, and Dutch director George Sluizer is ready to finally finish the film. In fact, Sluizer believes the final cut of the movie could be ready for release next year.

He explained to The Hollywood Reporter that he is going to use editing techniques like voice over to bridge the gap over the scenes Phoenix hasn't shot. The plan is to ask Phoenix's brother, Joaquin Phoenix, to do the voice work because "the voices of both brothers are very much alike."

Sluizer sat on the footage of "Dark Blood" over the 18 years since Phoenix's death »

Melissa Etheridge taught Brad Pitt 'the art of fishing' in her pool - Realbollywood.com News

28 September 2011 6:09 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, Sept 28: Female rock artist Melissa Etheridge has revealed that she was the one who taught Hollywood actor Brad Pitt to fish in her pool.

In an interview with Access Hollywood Live, Etheridge, 50, revealed that she introduced the 47-year-old actor to the art of fly-fishing in the early 90s.

Pitt was given a part in the 1992 flick 'A River Runs Through It' where he needed to fish, so Etheridge was there to help out the actor.

"I love to fish. I grew up in the Midwest and loved to fish, totally a huge fly-fishing [fan]," Us magazine quoted the singer as telling Access Hollywood. »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt named Hollywood Breakthrough Actor for “50/50″ – Awards Alley

26 September 2011 10:35 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: It was revealed this morning that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will receive the “Hollywood Breakthrough Actor Award” at this year’s 15th Annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards for his heartfelt performance in the film “50/50.” This year’s ceremony, presented by Starz Entertainment, is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 24, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

In Jonathan Levine’s film, which opens in theaters this Friday, Sept. 30, Gordon-Levitt plays Adam, an NPR editor diagnosed with cancer. The title refers to Adam’s odds of survival, though he receives tremendous support from his best friend (Seth Rogen), his pretty therapist (Anna Kendrick) and his worried mother (Anjelica Huston).

Gordon-Levitt will be on hand that evening to accept the award in person. His bio is below:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will next be seen in “50/50,” a comedy directed by Jonathan Levine that stars Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard. »

'Moneyball': How audiences fell back in love with screenwriting. Plus, Brad Pitt's sexiest dimension

25 September 2011 8:49 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Moneyball, the crackerjack true-life baseball movie starring Brad Pitt as the quirky, embattled, visionary Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (a name born to be a movie character), took a lot of people, including me, by surprise. A baseball drama with a star as big as Brad Pitt might have seemed like the perfect summer movie, so you had to wonder a bit why it wasn’t one. Then too, given the film’s late-September, quasi-no-man’s-land release date, it didn’t exactly sound like awards material either (though people have already started to talk about it in that way).

His Greatest Lesson

16 September 2011 3:57 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Way back when, before Angie and before Jen, Brad Pitt was just a (gorgeous) fledgling actor searching for his big break.

Now we all know that he did indeed find his way, but not without a little help from his friends.

The friend, however, is something of an unlikely guess: It was none other than Melissa Etheridge.

On her radio show, the singer revealed that she taught Pitt how to fly fish for his audition for "A River Runs Through It."

The role ended up propelling Pitt to mega stardom so, it turns out, we all owe Etheridge a debt of gratitude.

Unfortunately, the two have not taken in the sport recently.

The artist laughed on air, "Hi Brad, call me! It's been fifteen years." »

A Bird Of The Air Trailer And Preview

20 August 2011 8:41 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Coming your way in limited release on September 23rd, A Bird of the Air is a quirky, indie number that looks as charming as anything to come along in a while. Centered around a loner who finds a parrot, and embarks on a mission to return the bird to its rightful owner, it's a kind of quest film that spins out of control.

If the trailer is any real indication, my money is on this one coming together into a very solid effort, and one that I think many will find themselves watching again and again.

Below check out some more info, the trailer, and a few images, and find out if this one will make appearance near you.

Happy 75th Robert Redford

18 August 2011 4:42 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Just wanted to get this out there before the day is up. It's the 75th birthday of Robert Redford, actor/director/producer/film festival icon. Though his work as an actor and movie star isn't as obsessed over these days as his contemporaries from 60s and 70s cinema like past costars Paul Newman, Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway, Natalie Wood or Dustin Hoffman, that doesn't mean his star has faded. Movie stars of yore fall in and out of fashion. Who knows which 60s and 70s giants will be beloved in 2036 for example when Redford turns 100!?

Fact: The movies wouldn't be the same without him.

 Without Robert Redford there's no Sundance Festival, no Sundance Institute and without those, so many young unproven talents would not have been boosted or introduced to us in the way they were... and some probably not at all. And without Robert Redford what would have become of The Way We Were, »

Poster analysis: The Tree of Life

1 July 2011 7:14 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the first of a new monthly series on the best and worst film posters on release today, Paul Owen looks at the billboard ad for Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life – an unconventional poster that is not quite as unconventional as the film itself

This is the first in what will be a regular series on the most interesting film posters being produced today. I'm planning to mainly concentrate on the most impressive examples, as I did last year with Black Swan, but I'll also share with you some of the worst travesties currently marring the world's buses and bus shelters – such as this grisly and slipshod advert for the largely unsolicited Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts reunion Larry Crowne. Any suggestions for future columns are gratefully welcomed, so please feel free to tell me about any posters you've seen – good or bad – in the comments section below. »

David Thomson on Robert Redford

16 June 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Robert Redford is on the side of the angels. But he shouldn't let angels speak platitudes in a movie

Robert Redford did not direct a movie until he was over 40, when he had been a movie star for more than a decade. His debut, Ordinary People, came as an impressive surprise to the public and the Academy. It was observant, heartfelt and full of anguished performances. And it was appreciated that Redford was concentrating on the script and the actors and directing with stylistic restraint and professional anonymity. The surprise now may be that Ordinary People won best picture and the Oscar for best director, when Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull was among its rivals.

That was 1980, and in a way it was a turning point in American film. The status of the director had been in the ascendant in the late 60s and 70s. Directors were thought of as »

Robert Redford: The Biography by Michael Feeney Callan – review

11 June 2011 4:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

An elegant life of Robert Redford gets to the heart of an enigmatic, Gatsbyesque charmer who dreamed of freedom, honesty and social fulfilment

Actor, director, producer, conservationist, political activist and patron of independent cinema, Robert Redford has lived a formidably energetic life while continuing to look like the diffident, tousle-haired all-American boy next door. He'll be 75 on 18 August, and his latest film as director, The Conspirator, a study of the fallout from the assassination of President Lincoln, is as ambitious and serious as anything he's done.

The Irish writer Michael Feeney Callan has known this enigmatic, Gatsbyesque charmer for 14 years, interviewed him at length, spoken to some 300 witnesses and had access to his diaries and notebooks. Callan is thus in the best possible position to answer a key question that's been sung on family occasions by Redford's children these past few years to a tune by Andrew Lloyd Webber: »

Music in the movies: Mark Isham

19 April 2011 3:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In this week's Music In The Movies, Glen looks at the work of versatile composer, Mark Isham, whose music has graced films such as The Mechanic, Timecop and Blade...

Mark Isham is a composer I've admired for some time, through his works on a number of genre films as well as more mainstream fair. He's not, perhaps, the most grand of composers, but his brand of understated pieces often provide the perfect accompaniment for the films they were composed for, whilst not being the type of score that you would necessarily expect.

Isham's jazz background often shines through in his pieces for film and television, but there's also a fair amount of experimentation, and he's not a composer who resorts to recycling passages from film to film.

He's been nominated for the Academy Award once, for his work on A River Runs Through It, but lost out to Alan Menkin's score for Aladdin. »

Sean Penn and Brad Pitt finally share the same screen

The matching megastars have gone from matinee idols to serious actors; now they face each other as father and son in a film that has set pulses racing in Hollywood

As films go, the ambition of The Tree of Life is hardly small. The eagerly awaited epic from enigmatic auteur director Terrence Malick aims to explore the very meaning of existence in its two hours and 18 minutes run time. News that it is showing at the Cannes film festival has set pulses racing among Hollywood's great and good. But it's not just Malick's lushly artistic directorial style that has people excited. It is the identity of the male leads: Brad Pitt and Sean Penn.

Tree of Life will showcase the acting skills of two of modern Hollywood's biggest stars, appearing in a movie together for the first time. It is a classic piece of casting. "I'm eager to see these two work together, »

Just like it did with Battle: Los Angeles, Sony Pictures is offering movie cash for its upcoming film Soul Surfer with the purchase of certain DVD and Blu-ray discs through Amazon.

PG-rated Soul Surfer tells the true story of surfer girl Bethany Hamilton, played by AnnaSohpia Robb (Race to Witch Mountain), who lost her arm in a shark attack but found the courage to start surfing again. Dennis Quaid (Legion) portrays Bethany’s father and Helen Hunt (Every Day) her mother. The movie also stars Jeremy Sumpter (TV’s Friday Night Lights), Craig T. Nelson (TV’s Parenthood) singer Carrie Underwood in her film debut.
