Happy Birthday, Scarlett Johansson! The Sexy Star Turns 27

22 November 2011 8:35 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Wait? What? Scarlett Johansson is only 27 today?! We certainly don't mean that in a bad way. After all, the birthday girl looks better than ever. It's just that it feels like the stunning star has always been in our collective consciousness. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Scarlett's been doing what she does best since the age of 10 and has been wowing us ever since with her work in such films as The Horse Whisperer, Ghost World, Lost in Translation, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Iron Man 2. (Just to name a few.) And she certainly shows no sign of slowing down. Scarlett will soon be seen opposite Matt Damon in We Bought a Zoo and the highly anticipated multi-hero action »

Happy Birthday Scar Jo!

22 November 2011 8:18 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

From a young girl in "The Horse Whisperer" to a sultry sister in "The Other Boleyn Girl," a sassy coffee shop employee in "Ghost World" to her Oscar-nominated performance as a young wife displaced in Tokyo in "Lost In Translation," Scarlett Johansson is one of the most versatile leading ladies in Hollywood today.

Her look morphs with equal measure. From bangs to bouffants, curls to crimps, hair in every shade imaginable and dresses in up-there lengths to Judy Garland throwbacks, Scarlett has flaunted an astonishing array of styles throughout the past decade. She's also schmoozed with the best in Hollywood, as evidenced by countless photographs of her mingling with the industry A-List, been married once (to actor Ryan Reynolds in 2008), and is about to kick some serious ass in the upcoming action flick "The Avengers."

Here, we celebrate ScarJo's 27th birthday by taking a look at the actress over the years. »

AIDS, War, the Environment, the West Memphis Three: Oscar 2012 Documentary Semi-Finalists

19 November 2011 8:48 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The West Memphis Three: Joe Berlinger, Bruce Sinofsky's Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory AIDS, American football, horses, the environment, war, the American Injustice System, Harry Belafonte. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the 15 semi-finalists for the 2012 Best Documentary Feature Academy Award. Included on the list are James Marsh's Project Nim, a nominee for the British Independent Film Awards; Wim Wenders' Pina, Germany's submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar; and Cindy Meehl's Buck, about the man who inspired the book The Horse Whisperer and the ensuing Robert Redford movie. Now, before anyone freaks out because of the inclusion of Undefeated: rest assured that this is Dan Lindsay and T. J. Martin's documentary about underprivileged football players — Lindsay and Martin's effort has nothing to do with the Sarah Palin movie The Undefeated, a shoo-in Razzie nominee.

Nicholas Evans: 'Guilt is my subject. I've taken research to an extreme degree'

13 November 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The bestselling author of The Horse Whisperer bares his soul about the event that nearly killed him - and almost tore apart his family

Nicholas Evans is a celebrated storyteller, and the story he tells me is a cracker. A man and his wife go to stay with her brother and sister-in-law, a titled couple who live on a beautiful estate in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands. On a balmy August evening, the man goes out and picks some mushrooms. He brings them back, fries them up in some butter, sprinkles parsley over them, and the family enjoy a relaxing evening meal.

The following morning all four awake feeling not quite right. By lunchtime they are seriously ill. They consult a book in the kitchen – a guide to wild mushrooms – and leaf through until they find a photograph. Anxiously they scan the text, and see the chilling words: deadly poisonous. »

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. »

Scarlett Johansson's Dolce & Gabbana Commercial Serves as a Reminder

23 October 2011 2:25 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Dolce & Gabbana describe this video as "revealing the provocative yet effortless femininity of the eternal diva." Effortless? They must not have watched the video, then again, my assumption is they aren't referring to Scarlett Johansson as that "diva" only that she is pretending to be the "eternal diva". Titled "The One" and directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino (he directed "Human Nature" video) I personally look at it as a mess no matter what the point of it is supposed to be. The only thing it did as far as I'm concerned is remind me that Scarlett Johansson has never lived up to any kind of real promise as an actress. I guess the biggest question is to ask if Scarlett is playing herself in this piece? Playing an actress? Playing an actress playing an actress? Or playing an actress, playing an actress who is an actress that has lost all identity »

Little Scarlett Johansson Auditioning At 11 Years Old!

23 October 2011 2:15 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Scarlett Johansson has, over the past decade, become one of Hollywood's foremost leading ladies. Which makes it even more ridiculously cute to take a look back at her earliest days in Hollywood.

Studious movie fans may first remember her as Grace in "The Horse Whisperer," or even Molly in "Home Alone 3," if they haven't fully been able to forget about that film. But while that was a pretty impressively young start for the actress -- she was just 14 when "The Horse Whisperer" came out -- she may have become a major star even earlier.

As it turns out, Johansson auditioned for the lead role of Judy Shepherd in "Jumanji," that magical adventure flick that starred Robin Williams as a wild man sprung loose from decades stuck in a jungle board game. Despite the ultra cute audition -- see the video below -- the role went to Kirsten Dunst, shooting her to child stardom. »

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

22 October 2011 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Conspirator; Retreat; Mother's Day; Screwed; George Harrison: Living in the Material World

Considering the star power he still wields both in front of and behind the camera, it's extraordinary that Robert Redford's latest (admittedly preachy) drama The Conspirator (2010, Universal, 12) managed to come and go almost unnoticed in UK cinemas. The first salvo from the American Film Company, which has a remit to make "historically accurate" dramas, this solidly constructed and surprisingly engrossing affair concerns the kangaroo court set up in 1865 in the wake of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Called to defend the demonised Mary Surratt (Robin Wright) in whose boarding house the killers allegedly hatched their plot, Union war hero and upcoming lawyer Frederick Aiken (James McAvoy) is forced to question his political loyalties, learning along the way that civil liberties are not to be disposed of lightly.

Matt Damon, Michael Douglas doing a Liberace biopic for HBO

11 October 2011 12:48 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

A long-in-the-works movie about Liberace from director Steven Soderbergh has found a home: HBO.

The cable channel announced Tuesday (Oct. 11) that it will air "Behind the Candelabra," which will star Michael Douglas as the famed pianist and showman and Matt Damon as Scott Thorson, his assistant/lover whose 1982 palimony suit publicly outed Liberace.

Soderbergh and Damon -- who recently worked together on "Contagion" -- have been talking about the film on and off for the past couple of years, but it hadn't completely come together until now. Filming of Richard Lagravenese's ("Water for Elephants," "The Horse Whisperer") script is scheduled to begin next summer. A premiere date hasn't been set.

"I've wanted to make a film about Liberace for a very long time, and after the amazing experience I had with HBO on 'His Way,' I knew that they were absolutely the right place for this movie, »

Horses Will Do Anything for a "Buck"

It doesn't matter if you're or a "horse person" (we all know one) or not, the story of Buck Brannaman will entertain you. This is the guy who was the inspiration for the Robert Redford film The Horse Whisperer and he travels the country setting up week-long camps where equestrians can bring their steeds and learn his unique method for training them and cutting down their bad behavior. His story has been brought to film as Buck, a look at his practice and showing how he deals with a horse seemingly beyond reprieve. Buck rides to DVD on October 4th and to celebrate its release into the wild we're giving away a copy to one lucky reader.

DVD Playhouse--October 2011

DVD Playhouse—October 2011

By Allen Gardner

Terri (20th Century Fox) An awkward, obese teen (Jacob Wysocki) finds himself forming an odd friendship with his equally left-of-center vice-principal (John C. Reilly), who decides to help the boy navigate his way through adolescence’s rocky road. Low key film is filled with pathos and humor, but is ultimately too laid back for its own good (not to mention too long). Worth seeing for young Wysocki’s amazing, completely natural performance, and Reilly’s goofy charm. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Featurette; Deleted scenes. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.

Mr. Nice (Mpi) Rhys Ifans stars in the true story of Howard Marks, a Welsh-born Oxford grad who gained the most notoriety in his life for being the UK’s biggest hashish smuggler during the ‘70s and ‘80s, when he wasn’t busy spying for Her Majesty’s government, hanging out with a »

Release Date: Oct. 4, 2011

Price: DVD $24.98

Studio: Mpi

The life of Buck Brannaman, a bona fide horse whisperer, is chronicled in Buck.

The Audience Award winner at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, documentary movie Buck unveils the real-life story of Buck Brannaman, a bona fide American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine months a year helping horses with people problems.

The first film directed by Cindy Meehl, Buck chronicles the life of Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A true “horse whisperer,” he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Possessing what has been described as “magical abilities,” Brannaman dramatically transforms horses – and people – with understanding, compassion and respect.

Brannaman was the prime inspiration for the hero of Nicholas Evans’ novel The Horse Whisperer, not to mention the »

Release Date: Nov. 1, 2011

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray $39.99

Studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon join the circus in Water for Elephants.

The colorful 2011 romance drama Water for Elephants showcases the decadence of a bohemian circus and the majesty of its animals against the backdrop of a long-gone era.

Based on Sara Gruen’s 2006 best-selling novel of the same name, the movie stars Reese Witherspoon (How Do You Know), Robert Pattinson (the Twilight films) in another swoon-worthy role and Christoph Waltz (The Green Hornet) as, you guessed it, the villain.

The film’s Depression-era story concerns Jacob Jankowski (Pattinson), a young man with little money who abandons his veterinary studies at Cornell University following the sudden death of his parents. With no other family or home, Jacob stows away on a train carrying performers of The Benzini Brothers circus, leading to him to being hired as a veterinarian for the troupe’s animals. »
