George R.R. Martin Slams Sony’s ‘Corporate Cowardice,’ Offers to Screen ‘The Interview’ at His Own Theater

19 December 2014 10:42 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

George R.R. Martin has offered to screen Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy “The Interview” at the independent movie theater he owns in New Mexico.

“For what it’s worth, the Jean Cocteau Cinema will be glad to screen ‘The Interview’ (assuming that Sony does eventually release the film for theatrical exhibition, rather than streaming it or dumping it as a direct-to-dvd release), should it be made available to us,” Martin wrote in a blog post published earlier this week. “Come to Santa Fe, Seth, we’ll show your film for you.”

Top producer calls Angelina Jolie 'spoiled brat' in leaked emails

10 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Hackers continue to leak documents from Sony, and the latest batch includes what looks to be an exchange of heated emails between producer Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, that criticize Angelina Jolie and Adam Driver. The purported exchange between Pascal and Rudin is about the notion that Jolie wanted Fincher to direct her in a Cleopatra movie—and how they don't want that to happen. "There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how that is a bad thing given the insanity and rampaging ego of this woman and the cost of the »

The First Husbands Club: Forgotten Celebrity Spouses

3 October 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not every fairy tale in Hollywood has a happy ending.

In Hollywood some marriages start and end in the blink of an eye – and no one knows this better than these starlets. Here's a look at the forgotten first husbands of some very famous women.

1. Damon Thomas (Kim Kardashian)

Before her lavish wedding extravaganza to Kanye West this past May and Kris Humphries in 2012, music producer Damon Thomas was the first to put a ring on it. Kardashian was only 19 years old when she wed Thomas in 2000. They divorced three years later.

2. Ojani Noa (Jennifer Lopez)

Jenny from the block has had her fair share of J.Lovers but Ojani Noa was the lucky lad who first walked Lopez down the aisle in 1997. Their marriage was short lived, however, and they divorced 11 months later. She was later married to Cris Judd from 2001-2002 and Marc Anthony from 2004-2014 (they separated in 2011).

ITV's Gladiators: where are they now?

3 August 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Have you ever wondered what Jet, Wolf, and the rest of ITV's Gladiators did after the show finished? Wonder no more...

ITV’s Gladiators - the show that for eight years made children everywhere become interested in sports, eating well and keeping fit... for about five minutes on a Saturday night, then we all went back to our natural state of sitting on the settee eating sugar straight from the packet.

What was it that inspired this minor surge of enthusiasm for being buff? That would be the gladiators themselves. Every week, twelve superhuman powerhouses - six men and six women - would intimidate, bully, and otherwise humiliate whichever puny contestants stepped up to try their luck, beating or hindering them in a series of physical skill games. This took place before the big finale – where the contenders would race each other up a downwards escalator, while the gladiators were »

Tech revolution: How TV is finally computing the stuff of comedy and drama

12 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

The rule regarding the portrayal of computing on television or film used to be simple: don’t do it. From Sandra Bullock peering anxiously at her laptop in dire tech thriller The Net to Angelina Jolie as a crop-haired cyber-criminal in Hackers, the early days of the internet age were riven with failed attempts to bring it to dramatic life. »

Angelina Jolie Facts: 33 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Maleficent' Star

30 May 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to believe Angelina Jolie has been a fixture of Hollywood for almost 20 years now.

Ever since breaking out in the late '90s with a string of critically-acclaimed performances, the actress quickly established herself as an international star. Between headlining hits like "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" and directing passion projects like "In the Land of Blood and Honey," Jolie is perhaps the biggest Hollywood spokesperson of humanitarian efforts worldwide. This summer, however, Jolie can be seen taking a wicked turn in Disney's "Maleficent" -- a re-imagining of "Sleeping Beauty" from the villain's point-of-view.

From her Oscar-winning godfather to her curiosity with blood, here are 33 things you probably don't know about Angelina Jolie.

1. Jolie was born June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles to Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, both actors.

2. The actress was born Angelina Jolie Voight, but she legally dropped her surname "Voight" in 2002.

3. She is the goddaughter of actress Jacqueline Bisset and actor Maximilian Schell. »

The Good, the Bad & the Badass: Angelina Jolie

25 May 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Last week, we took a look at the career of the iconic, beloved Ian McKellen. This week's subject is just as beloved, both for her iconic work on-screen, and her humanitarian work off-screen. Oh, and let's not forget, she's insanely hot.... Angelina Jolie The first time I saw Angelina Jolie, my heart just about stopped. It was in 1995, when the movie Hackers came out. I was thirteen years old, and her insanely appealing, exotic looks blew my mind. »

Angelina Jolie Pouts and Vamps in Flashback Photo Shoot: See the Sexy Star at 20!

8 May 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

#Tbt, indeed! Angelina Jolie remains, at 38, as smokin' hot as the day is long, but before she became an Oscar-winning actress/humanitarian/mother-of-six, she had that inimitable brazen streak. And thanks to the Internet, it's as easy as ever to remember when. At the tender age of 20, the pouty beauty posed for photographer Marcel Indik in L.A., the shoot taking place in October 1995 following the release of one of her first films, the tech caper Hackers. Wearing a miniskirt, a marabou-trimmed jacket (could this shoot be more '90s?) and platform heels, the sultry Jolie pouted, vamped and otherwise emoted for Indik's lens, letting the impressive shape of her soon-to-be iconic »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2005

15 January 2014 7:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 16 Jan 2014 - 06:20

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 2005...

It's underappreciated films time again, and this week, we delve deep into the year 2005 - a collection of months dominated by the likes of Star Wars: Episode III, another Harry Potter, Steven Spielberg's War Of The Worlds, Peter Jackson's King Kong, and CG family movie Madagascar.

It was also the year Pierce Brosnan formally bowed out of his role as James Bond, and Martin Scorsese's The Aviator was hyped to win the director his first Oscar, but didn't. Still, the contents of this list received nothing like the acclaim of The Aviator, nor the financial pickings of a Star Wars or Harry Potter. As ever, we've focused on 25 films which we think deserve a bit more love.

Transcendence and the return of the 90s cyber thriller

9 January 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 10 Jan 2014 - 15:08

With tech thriller Transcendence out this year, Hollywood seems to be revisiting its 90s fascination with virtual reality, Ryan writes...

Like seasons, hairstyles and fashion, genre popularity in Hollywood runs in cycles. Historical epics have faded in and out of favour since the 1930s, for example, and appear to be on the rise again, with Ridley Scott’s Exodus, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and two movies based on the Hercules legend all on the horizon. It's not just historical epics making a comeback, either. With Wally Pfister's directorial debut Transcendence, we could be in for a mini revival of the cyber thrillers of the 1990s.

If you don't know anything about Transcendence yet, you can catch up with the first trailer here. Briefly, it's about a scientist (Johnny Depp) who's killed by terrorists shortly after completing some groundbreaking research into machine intelligence. Grief stricken, »
