The Fault in Our Stars features Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus “Gus” Waters, two teens who meet at a cancer-survivor support group. Though Hazel is initially skeptical about getting close to Gus and warns him of her worsening condition, Gus still falls for her. As the two fall in love, Gus relapses, and he dies shortly after they return from their romantic trip to Amsterdam. The adaptation of John Green’s novel of the same name was a box-office smash and has earned Woodley some Oscar buzz. Should Woodley receive a nomination for this role, she would join the list of best actress nominees who have been nominated for their roles in heartbreaking films.
Some of the most well-known tragic love stories didn’t score any leading actress nominations, though. For example, Natalie Wood was not nominated for her »

Kate Winslet is spilling the dirty details about her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio ... or lack thereof.More than 16 years after the release of "Titanic," the actress is opening up about her on-screen love Leo, and whether anything romantic ever went down between the two off camera. "I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing," she says in the November issue of Marie Claire UK. "It's so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did," she continues. "He always saw me as one of the boys. I've never really been a girly-girl."Even though they never took their relationship to the next level, the 38-year-old beauty says they have a special bond."We needed each other to lean »

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio make better friends than lovers. The actors, who co-starred in 1997's Titanic and 2008's Revolutionary Road, have always been close. In fact, DiCaprio gave the actress away when she married Ned Rocknroll in 2012. "I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing," Winslet says in Marie Claire U.K.'s November issue. "It's so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did. He always saw me as one of the boys; I've never really been a girly-girl. We needed each other to lean on because we were very »
Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio portrayed one of the most beloved movie couples in James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster film Titanic, but in real-life, the two might have one of the best friendships a guy and girl could ask for. Some Leo and Kate fans will be sad to hear that the co-stars have only ever been just friends.
"It's so disappointing for people to hear that," Winslet tells Marie Claire UK's Nov. 2014 issue about her platonic relationship with DiCaprio. "Because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did."

Winslet and DiCaprio played star-crossed lovers in Titanic and a combustible married couple in 2008’s Revolutionary Road. Over the years, the costars have fostered a lasting friendship, one so close that DiCaprio gave Winslet away at her 2012 wedding to Ned Rocknroll.
"I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing," Winslet told Marie Claire U.K. "It's so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did.”

We'll never let go of the idea of Rose and Jack! More than 16 years after the release of Titanic, Kate Winslet opened up about her on-screen love Leonardo DiCaprio, and whether anything romantic ever went down between the two off camera. "I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing," Winslet, 38, told Marie Claire UK for a November issue cover story interview. Winslet and DiCaprio appeared in Titanic in their early 20s, playing the star-crossed lovers Rose and Jack aboard [...] »
Speaking to Marie Claire, the actress said that the pair remain such close friends because they were never involved romantically.
"I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing. It's so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did."
She added: "He always saw me as one of the boys; I've never really been a girly-girl. We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy bloody hours and it was a shock to the system."
Winslet also ruled out a joint 40th birthday party with DiCaprio, suggesting that it wouldn't suit either of them.

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”
On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.
Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.
Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and sponsored by Swarovski, this ticketed exhibition »

The upcoming project, written by EuropaCorp topper Luc Besson and “The Equalizer” screenwriter Richard Wenk, focuses on a group of Navy SEALs attempt to solve a long-forgotten mystery while uncovering an immense treasure hidden in a lake in war-torn Serbia.
Quale, who directed WB’s $152 million-grosser “Into the Storm,” is no stranger to underwater projects. He co-directed “Aliens of the Deep” with James Cameron and also worked with him on “Titanic” and “The Abyss.”
EuropaCorp’s slate includes “The Transporter Legacy” and recent Toronto film Festival acquisition “Big Game.” It announced in February that it was forming the Red joint distribution venture for the U.S. with Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity.
Quale is represented by Resolution and Principato/Young.

Ever since the beach party genre exploded in the 60s, where girls in bikinis accounted for about half of the movies’ budgets, boobs have been used as a way to sell otherwise awful films to audiences who can’t get enough of that fleshy stuff. So sexploitation flicks flourished in the 70s, which were replaced with more light-hearted teen sex romps in the 80s.
Even some very high profile, critically acclaimed films have used the tactic to capture that rare demographic who couldn’t care less about Academy Awards but who loves some boobies (14 to 22-year-old males, mostly).
Titanic brought a legion of begrudging males to the theatre once their significant others promised they would see Kate Winslet’s bare breasts. Thousands of them sat through a 3-hour period drama with the cheesiest love story the 90s could handle for a 5-second shot of her chest.

John Woo’s latest film The Crossing is already being billed as “the Chinese Titanic.” This is either an exciting prospect or a terrifying one, depending on how you feel about James Cameron’s hugely successful shipwreck epic. If the recent trailer is any indication, The Crossing is also lot more than a shipboard romance interrupted by a big iceberg.
The two-part film takes place in China during the 1949 revolution as three disparate couples flee the country on an ill-fated steamer bound for Taiwan. The trailer also features several battle sequences that demonstrate Woo’s love of slow-motion, along with a voiceover hoping for a safe return of some of our heroes. All in all, the trailer leaves impressions more than a sense of plot, as it’s difficult to follow who is connected to whom, and why each couple must get out of China. Based on the true story »

Leo's looking hairy! Titanic hunk Leonardo DiCaprio rocked a fuller-than-ever beard and a slicked-back man bun on Sunday, Sept. 21 as he accepted his Clinton Global Citizen Award in New York for his environmental work. The 39-year-old actor, who has been sporting facial hair for the past few months, looked more hirsute than ever with a bushy beard and his flowing locks pulled back into a neat bun, as he took to the stage to receive the prestigious award. DiCaprio, who narrated a new climate change documentary, Carbon, [...] »
Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

There's adventure and fantasy afoot in Time Bandits.
In the film, a boy named Kevin (Craig Warnock) escapes his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarves. Armed with a map stolen from the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson, The Four Feathers), they plunder treasure from Napoleon (Ian Holm, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Agamemnon (Sean Connery, The Man Who Would Be King)—but Evil (David Warner, Titanic) is watching their every move.
Featuring a darkly playful script by Gilliam and Monty Python’s Michael Palin (who also appears in the film),Â Time Bandits is at once a giddy fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson, and a satire on technology gone awry.
The film has been out in »
In a 2011 Vulture article, we sized up the sparse field of young leading men in the movies and plaintively asked, “Where Are the New Leos, Tobeys, and Jakes?” Three years later, that drought has only gotten worse. While the movies can boast a plentiful array of bankable female superstars under 25, including Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley, and Kristen Stewart, their male counterparts are meager, and there’s still no young man with an under-25 career comparable to the one had by Leonardo DiCaprio (who’d been Oscar-nominated for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and toplined the then-biggest movie ever, Titanic, before turning 25), Tobey Maguire (who’d by that age starred in classics like The Ice Storm and The Cider House Rules), or Jake Gyllenhaal (who made Brokeback Mountain, Donnie Darko, and Jarhead before his 25th birthday).What gives? Vulture put the question to Tobey Maguire himself at the Toronto Film Festival, »

In cinematic circles, James Cameron and bleeding-edge technology go hand in hand. Whether it’s overseeing the construction of the world’s largest indoor water tank for Titanic back in 1997 or pushing the envelope for Avatar with ultra-realistic motion capture, the filmmaker likes to establish his own filmic parameters.
And now, it seems as though Cameron is eyeing up the possibility of shooting the Avatar sequels in full 4K resolution through the use of Douglas Trumbull’s patented gizmo, Magi — an experimental process that renders the image in 4K 3D at 120 frames per second.
“I know that Cameron admired Showscan [Trumbull's earlier invention of a large-format high-frame rate projection system] and that he is a huge advocate of high frame rates [HFRs]. The use of HFRs for Avatar would be very appropriate and very successful. »

Remember when The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey came out? Remember the while who-ha in regards to film being shot at a whopping 48-frames-per-second? The world was in uproar as to why the new technology was being used, despite the fact that you could march on down to your local multiplex and still have the choice of viewing the film in the new higher frame rate format or the old 24-frames-per-second one. Very much like you have a choice of viewing a film in 2D or 3D. Well, as much as Peter Jackson got excited about projecting at a higher frame rate, another has gone one step further? James Cameron.
The word around the campfire is that Cameron’s people are holding meetings with tech folk about potentially screening the two planned Avatar sequels at a huge 120-frames-per-second. Take that Internet. A guy named Douglas Trumbull has developed a new way of projecting a 3D, »

Age Gap Love returned to Channel 5 last night (Monday, September 15), introducing a singleton looking for a young whippersnapper, and three couples from the UK and across the pond for our judging viewing pleasure...
Chris and Norma
First up were the seemingly happy and loved-up twosome 36-year-old Chris and his 68-year-old wife Norma, who was so heavily made-up she looked like she'd just been shot in the face with Homer Simpson's make-up gun. But despite all this, Chris somehow managed to look older.
The pair's love story began at a Butlins when Chris was just 18 and Norma 50. Although their relationship was frowned upon by friends and family, the couple married three years later - to "Titanic on the way up and Martine McCutcheon's 'Perfect Moment' on the way down" - and recently renewed their vows after almost two decades together.
We then followed Chris on his quest to become a successful music producer, »
