While you weren't paying attention, Jared Leto was touring the world and playing rock and roll for hundreds of thousands of rabid fans. Except he doesn't like the word "fan," because he finds it insulting. Thirty Seconds to Mars, the band Leto fronts, doesn't have "fans," they have a "family."
"We do a lot of interviews and all these people keep asking us about you," Leto said to the crowd at the New York stop of the Church of Mars show, an aptly titled string of dates during which the band plays in churches. "It's great because I think a lot of bands don't get asked about their ... 'fans'. People sort of scratch their heads and don't really seem to get it. Which is funny, because I think all of you understand what a family is."
To say Thirty Seconds to Mars has been overlooked isn't quite true given the »

Even though Patrick Bateman would never be caught dead (or caught killing ) in a T-shirt in public, this shirt may come in handy. It gives you an instructional graphic on how to dress like the anti-hero of American Psycho. The fine print includes different brands and products that you will need if you intend to dress like... well, like a psychopath.

The Almeida Theatre in London has already agreed to mount the world stage premiere of Bret Easton Ellis' novel this winter but Sheik wants to give it a $150,000 infusion.
The Kickstarter campaign, which ends May 24, will go to fund things like more musicians, better sets and top-notch lights. As of Thursday morning, it had raised $78,830.
"This allows us to up the ante in terms of what the production is going to entail," the Grammy- and Tony-winning singer-songwriter said. "I think it's about being able to do things in the space that make for a really cool immersive theatrical experience."
The 1991 novel – made into a movie starring Christian Bale – follows a homicidal New York yuppie named Patrick Bateman who is obsessed with high-end »
Well this is interesting: Joe Wright, known for his prestigious, visually ravishing adaptations of “Pride & Prejudice” and “Anna Karenina” has become the frontrunner for Focus Features' adaptation of insanely popular mom-porn novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.” The novel (and eventual movie) revolves around the dom-sub relationship between a twenty-something millionaire and a young college student. The movie, which is being adapted by Kelly Marcel, has been in something of a holding pattern, with Universal and Focus putting up $5 million for the adaptation way back in early 2012. The lack of activity has created an anything-goes atmosphere, wherein “American Psycho” author Bret Easton Ellis volunteered to write the screenplay and “Good Will Hunting” director Gus Van Sant shot some unsolicited test footage with “Magic Mike” actor Alex Pettyfer playing sexually dominant millionaire Christian Grey. According to the same report that places Wright in the frontrunner role, other filmmakers being considered include »

So many names have been tossed around over the years for The Crow reboot, but news started to pick up over the last few weeks. You may have heard rumors of Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgard, but someone else is going to be playing Eric Draven. According to Deadline, Luke Evans is currently in negotiations to start in Relativity’s remake of The Crow.
Evans was previously seen in The Raven and Immortals, and recently signed on for Universal’s new Dracula movie. Before he appears in Dracula, we’ll see him as the villain in Fast & Furious 6 this summer. Apparently, Evans has been the first choice for the role, but his busy schedule was causing conflicts. In order to accommodate his schedule, the movie will not begin filming until next year.

First there was Bret Easton Ellis’ controversial novel, then it took of the guise of the unforgettable American Psycho starring Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman and now…we all have the chance to make the Musical: A Reality! As we previously reported, Rupert Goold will be directing this stage version and it’s already got the blessing of author himself. So much so, you’ll even see his recommendation in the pitch video over on Kickstarter and now they need you to make this happen and produce something completely unique.
The stage is set for the Almeida Theatre in London this December, and is a true labour of love for the creative team of Jesse Singer, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Bookwriter), Duncan Sheik (Composer/Lyricist) and Rupert Goold (Director). If by hearing all this, it makes you think they’re on their way, well they are but The Almeida Theatre and Headlong are both non-profit theatre companies. »

It’s hard to imagine Catwoman played by anyone besides Michelle Pfeiffer or Harrison Ford not in the iconic role of Indiana Jones. But it almost happened on several occasions. Whether the actor was fired from set or just pulled out last minute due to the always convenient “scheduling conflicts” excuse, the person never made it to the big screen in these films.
Original Star: James Remar
Replacement: Michael Biehn
Original Star: Christian Bale
Replacement: Christian Bale
This one is a bit bizarre. Christian Bale was originally offered the role of Bateman but then the studio decided to go in a different direction. They hired Leonardo DiCaprio the role but he dropped out after the success of Titanic. The part was then offered to Ewan McGregor, but »

Ken Burns, it seems, has been reading his reviews. After fashioning a career out of sepia-tone photographs and amber waves of grain (and been accused of racial tunnel vision at least once), America's most recognizable documentarian has turned his camera towards late-80s New York, a setting that inspired such dystopian nightmares as Watchmen and American Psycho. The story of The Central Park Five will be familiar to many viewers (certainly to anyone in the area at the time), but fewer will know about the years of appeals, the faulty evidence, and the final exoneration of the five boys who were so willingly served up as sacrificial lambs by those who were supposed to protect them. This is fertile territory for any documentarian, but a strange one for Burns, whose work has focused on unambiguous topics requiring little in the way of moral courage. One might worry that his authoritative voice would slip here, »

Writer Bret Easton Ellis is famously outspoken on Twitter, so it’s no surprise that the social media site proved his venting outlet of choice after he learned that some callous remarks he made about the Lgbt community landed him squarely on the not-welcome list for Saturday’s GLAAD Media Awards.
“As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married, I’m sad to hear I’ve been banned by GLAAD from attending tomorrow’s event,” Ellis tweeted. “GLAAD is supposedly ‘furious’ about my tweets. And I’m guessing not the ones concerning my boyfriend or »

Bret Easton Ellis wants the world to know he was not among the A-list names who attended the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles over the weekend.
The "American Psycho" scribe spoke out in a series of tweets, claiming he was banned from the star-studded festivities:
Interestingly, the author claims it was his Twitter declarations which got him barred from the event in the first place:
Of course, Ellis seems to be alluding to a series of Twitter controversies he's sparked in recent years. In August, he slammed the possible casting of "White Collar" star Matt Bomer as Christian Grey as "absolutely ludicrous" because the actor is openly gay. "I think Matt Bomer is incredibly handsome and a good actor but I think he comes off totally gay in White Collar," he wrote at the time. " And that is why no to CG..."
He had similar thoughts on "New Normal »

Sheik, is best known for his 1996 debut single "Barely Breathing" and and is the songwriter of "Spring Awakening." He's teamed up with playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who worked on HBO's "Big Love," Fox's "Glee" and the Broadway production of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark."
The 1991 novel – later made into a 2000 movie starring Christian Bale – chronicles a homicidal New York yuppie who is obsessed with high-end clothes and beauty products as he slashes his way through Manhattan. »
Novelist and screenwriter misses ceremony in wake of string of contentious comments on social media
Bret Easton Ellis was barred from attending the annual Glaad media awards at the weekend, the perennially controversial novelist and screenwriter has revealed.
Ellis was due to attend the La event, which honours organisations and individuals for their positive representation of those in the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual communities, as the guest of an invitee. The writer, who is currently in a gay relationship, revealed via Twitter he would no longer be attending.
"As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married I'm sad to hear I've been banned by Glaad from attending tomorrow's event," the American Psycho author wrote. "Glaad is supposedly 'furious' about my tweets. And I'm guessing not the ones concerning my boyfriend or how sexy I think Adam Driver is."
Glaad later confirmed it had sought »

Now here’s something very interesting, as Bret Easton Ellis’ cult-classic novel American Psycho is coming to the London stage later this year at the Almeida Theatre. It’s always a hard task to take on, with Christian Bale having made such an iconic screen presence but Rupert Goold, the Almeida’s Artistic Director Designate, will take on the challenge and direct the World Premiere of American Psycho, which will be a musical thriller with book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik, based on that novel by Bret Easton Ellis.
Living the high life in 1980s Manhattan, Patrick Bateman has it all – looks, money, style and status. He and his entourage buy the most expensive designer clothes, eat at the most exclusive restaurants and party at the hottest clubs. But privately, Patrick indulges in another kind of transgression. And people – including those closest to him – keep disappearing. »

Radha Mitchell's daughter, Penelope, is hitting the genre scene on two fronts. Tomorrow, you'll be able to see her in Hemlock Grove, debuting on Netflix, and currently, she's shooting The Curse of Downer's Grove, co-written by American Psycho's Bret Easton Ellis.
The latter - directed by Derick Martini - concerns a small midwestern town gripped by a curse that claims the life of one high school senior every year. Chrissie Swanson (Bela Heathcote) fears she is the next victim of The Curse of Downers Grove.
We spoke to Mitchell recently who gave us an update on the film.

Funny or Die’s feature-length Steve Jobs biopic starring Justin Long has arrived. It’s long. It features at least one scene of virtual sex and two acid trips. It’s not fair to call iSteve (written and directed by Ryan Perez) a 78-minute sketch — it’s actually a movie, mostly. (“Cut entirely on iMovie,” the credits tell us.) Long’s Jobs himself speaks to us from a velvety-dark room. Is it heaven? What it is is a version of Jobs’ life from the peanut gallery: He’s a “renegade, a rebel, one of a kind, a bit of a loose cannon, »

According to Chud, Marvel is moving forward with a "Doctor Strange" movie and is considering Justin Theroux to play the role. It's not clear if other actors are being looked at, but it's rumored that Theroux is already working on the script. Theroux starred in such films as "Wanderlust," "Your Highness," and "American Psycho," and is known for his toned physique. The actor is also responsible for the scripts for "Tropic Thunder," "Iron Man 2" and "Rock of Ages." Originated in 1963 by Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, Dr. Strange was a self-centered New York surgeon robbed of his touch after a car accident. After a stint as a wandering derelict, he found his way to a healer in the Himalayas, where he learned to tap into psychic powers to battle evil wizards and other wrongdoers. Other actors previously rumored to play the role have been Viggo Mortensen, Adrien Brody and Patrick Dempsey. »
Gary Oldman on why his character Bex from the 1989 movie The Firm says everything about the Thatcher years
Maggie at the movies
There isn't a section of society or the media that hasn't reflected on what Margaret Thatcher meant. Film, football, sport, cookery – they've all weighed in with their Thatcher memories when, it seems to me, all we're really doing is basically remembering the 1980s. The nation has become a nostalgia radio station, like a giant Capital Gold, over the past week. Still, I'm not going to let that stop Trash going off on one. Maggie, we know, cared little for the arts — why should she, when every play, film or standup comedian was basically slagging her off? Hate figure she may have been, but it didn't half make for a lively antagonism for writers and directors. Don't we miss having such a big target these days? The only equivalent »

Shirtlessness is one of the great cinematic arts, a tradition dating back nearly a century and finally gaining traction with Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire, Paul Newman in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Zac Efron in whatever that was. The 2013 MTV Movie Awards understands this important legacy and is honoring it this Sunday with the "Best Shirtless Performance" category, which has four very deserving nominees and one grimly unsexy puppet. Let's rate each of these nominees' nominated shirtlessness from 1-10 and pick a most deserving victor.
No matter where it goes, Christian Bale's shirtlessness will bear the spectre of American Psycho, which remains one of the most important exhibitions of psychotic flesh since the Academy Awards streaker of '74. Bale's pecs remain as chiseled, adamantium-tight, and Bruce Lee-esque as in his Bret Easton Ellis days, but I'm »
Here's another magnificent short film from Freddie Wong. It's called Metal Gear Sunrising, and it's a fantastically hilarious mashup of Metal Gear Solid and the movie American Psycho. The description of the video says, "Raiden has an episode of Ptsd triggered whenever he uses a blender."
Wong has made a lot of excellent films over the years, but this one is definitely my favorite. The ending is incredible. You're going to love this one, so check it out below and let us know what you think!
