Elijah Wood: 'I was thrilled to play Frodo Baggins in The Hobbit'

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

Since Lord of the Rings, the actor has avoided big-budget epics. But now he's reprising his hobbit role and starring in a lavish Treasure Island adaptation

Is that the Ring? Around the ring finger of Elijah Wood's right hand is a band of silver with strange lettering on it – probably Elvish. As a reward for his lead hobbiting services in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, director Peter Jackson reportedly gave Wood the original Ring. And he still wears it. Doesn't he?

"No. This is Hebrew, " he says, twirling the ring around his finger. "I know, it has a kind of a similar look to it."

Oh.

"I do have the Ring, but it's not inscribed, and it's gold. But I don't think it's real gold – gold-plated. But, no, I don't wear it. I keep it in a little box." Not on a chain around his neck? "I carried it for a long time, »

Our Holiday Favorites: The Ice Storm

5 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

My Elijah Wood obsession pre-dates his appearance on the children's television series Yo Gabba Gabba and his starring role in the FX television series Wilfred.

What I do when I become strangely fixated on an actor is search for them on IMDb. I research their filmography and spend weekends watching everything listed, regardless of plot. So, thanks to Elijah Wood I've spent hours watching movies about a comet colliding with Earth, a dancing penguin and human-like people walking through a forest on top of talking trees.

However, if it were not for my Elijah Wood IMDb filmography obsession, I probably would not have seen The Ice Storm. I first watched the film last year, sitting at my desk alone in my dorm room. I remember it was freezing outside (hence, why I was in my dorm room ... wearing a peacoat) and there was a rumor floating around the hall that it was going to snow. »

Christina Ricci: 'I don't think anything I said was really dark'

11 November 2011 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Christina Ricci was the little gothic girl who shot to fame aged nine and liked to shock. Now the veteran star of new TV series Pan Am, she tells how she's left her dark days behind

The image of Christina Ricci, as an actor of arresting darkness, hasn't had much of an airing lately – for the past few years her output has been confined mainly to voiceovers and guest appearances in TV shows. As a result, perhaps, the 31-year-old has not aged in the public eye; she appears suddenly in a restaurant in Brooklyn, still child-sized, eyes not quite to scale, with that expressionless gaze behind which, one imagines, seditious thoughts circulate. Over the course of lunch, she will by turns be giggly, friendly, enthusiastic, monosyllabic and studiously anodyne. It is like watching someone page through the ringtones of human behaviour. "I'm an actress," she says, "we constantly let things out. »

Happy 64th Birthday, Kevin Kline! What's His Best Onscreen Moment?

24 October 2011 3:00 PM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

This is a special Monday, dears, because the illustrious Kevin Kline turns 64 today. The man who lit up The Big Chill before going on to garner an Academy Award for A Fish Called Wanda is that rare leading man who seems perfectly at home in bizarre character roles. I'm trembling just thinking of my favorite Kevin Kline scene. Can you guess it? Will I be plundering The Ice Storm? In & Out? Dave? Or the gritty saloon drama Wild, Wild West? »

Q&A: Ryan's Harem, a Smg Triplet, & Streep/Close Duet.

18 October 2011 5:54 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Because I am super late in this week's (er.. last week's Q&A column) I'm answering more questions than usual. So let's get right to it. 

Ed: After Michelle Williams and Evan Rachel Wood, which actress under 30 would you love to see Ryan Gosling falling in love in the big screen?

I've been joking with friends (offscreen) that Ryan Gosling has basically made it his goal to bang every hot future Oscar winner in Hollywood (onscreen): Rachel, Evan, Kiki, Michelle, Carey, Emma. He's the envy of every straight and/or actressexual moviegoer out there. So pretty soon he'll have to get around to Anne Hathaway, right? I'd be interested to see what he'd be like paired with Andrea Riseborough, Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), and... Oooh... totally random also small screen that needs to be bigger: Katee Sackhoff! She's 31 (Ryan's age) but she never gets good roles despite so »

Exclusive: Yasmin Paige Talks Submarine

3 October 2011 9:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actress Yasmin Paige talks Submarine, working with the cast and director Richard Ayoade, and more.

Yasmin Paige certainly seems to be an actress we'll be hearing quite a lot more from after her performance in Submarine, which hits Blu-ray and DVD October 4. The actress plays Jordana Bevan in this coming-of-age comedy from director Richard Ayoade, a young girl whom Craig Roberts' character Oliver takes a liking to. He attempts to lose his virginity to Jordana while simultaneously trying to mend his parents' ow relationship, often in bizarre ways.

I recently had the chance to speak with Yasmin Paige about her role in Submarine. Here's what she had to say below.

Could you talk about your initial thoughts on the script and your first meetings with (writer-director) Richard Ayoade? This must have been quite an interesting script to read.

Yasmin Paige: Yeah, definitely. When I first read it, I »

Are American Movies Getting Religion When it Comes to Sex?

7 September 2011 8:36 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy

It was one thing when Hollywood released two "friends with benefits"-themed movies this year a few months apart: No Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits.

But a mainstream movie about an outright orgy? A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, which opened last weekend, seems like something new, right? Could it be that Americans, and American movies, are growing up? They're we're finally getting, um, religion on the topic of sex in film?

Of course, the problem with movie trend articles is that there are so many movies released every year that you can always find examples to support almost any point you want to make. I mean, when it comes to sex, Cruising (1980), Basic Instinct (1992), and Showgirls (1995) weren't exactly chopped liver.

Cruising's infamous gay S&M club

And let's face it: the mere inclusion of sex and sexual topics in movies doesn't necessarily mean the »

Review: The Art of Getting By

29 August 2011 5:05 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Art Of Getting By

Stars: Freddie HighmoreEmma Roberts, Michael Angarano, Alicia Silverstone | Written and directed by Gavin Wiesen

If you’re a fan of a genre, you can forgive an awful lot of a film’s shortcomings. Personally, despite being old enough to know better, I really like coming of age dramas (The Ice Storm, Adventureland, Almost Famous, etc). As such, I was predisposed to get a kick out of The Art of Getting By. The question is, will those not enamoured with tales of teenage boys learning about life and love enjoy it as much?

Freddie Highmore – a veteran of kid films such as Spiderwick Chronicles, Astro Boy, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and others – stars as George, a teen so nihilistic he sees no point in doing any work at his school, despite his intelligence and talent for art, much to the frustration of his teachers. »

My Favorite Movie: Katie Holmes

24 August 2011 11:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"This week, 'Notorious' and 'It Happened One Night,' because that's what I watched.

"It's great storytelling. Every shot is telling the story. It's not even just limited to the dialogue. It's perfectly done. It's so well edited. You can watch it all over and over and you see new things. It's just perfect, so sophisticated.

"And I saw them both outside, so that was great."

Former "Dawson's Creek" star Katie Holmes made her big-screen debut in Ang Lee's "The Ice Storm" and went on to appear in "Wonder Boys" and "Batman Begins." She now stars in Guillermo del Toro and Troy Nixey's "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," opening August 26.

Review: The Conspirator

2 July 2011 8:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Robert Redford is back behind the camera for his first directed film since 2007 with The Conspirator.

It’s 1865 and America is reeling from the assassination of its most beloved president, Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth (Toby Kebbell, The Veteran). The country, particularly Senator Stanton (Kevin Kline, The Ice Storm), rushes for the perpetrators to be brought to justice. Quickly each of the conspirators are hunted down and either killed or arrested. One of the people arrested and readied for trial is John Surratt’s mother, Mary Surratt (Robin Wright, State Of Play) who is accused of harbouring and conspirator with the assassins. Frederick Aiken (James McAvoy, X-men First Class), a Civil War Veteran and lawyer, believes Mary Surratt to be guilty but is forced to represent her. As the trial goes on the obvious whitewash of proceedings and corrupt manner of the government’s involvement in trying to achieve »
