Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Mip TV: Mena Suvari on ‘South of Hell,’ Eli Roth, Her Chameleon Nature

14 April 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Conjoining the talents of the world’s two young high priests of horror, Eli Roth and Jason Blum, Mena Suvari’s psychological chiller “South of Hell,” an eight-hour original drama, initiated its sales campaign Monday at Cannes Mip TV, having wrapped production in Charlestown in January.

At Mip TV, in a pretty print dress, Suvari hardly looks as if she’s got a devil inside her. That, however is part of her interest as an actress. Suvari broke out in Sam Mendes’ Oscar winning “American Beauty” where she played the girl next door and object of a helpless Kevin Spacey’s desire.

There’s something of that dichotomy, amped up, in “South of Hell,” which is produced by Blumhouse Television and Sonar Entertainment, which also sells international.

Set in Charleston, South Carolina, “the most possessed city in the world,” according to a synopsis, “South” features Suvari in almost every »

Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Miniseries Finds Director And Supporting Cast

7 April 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

11/22/63 is proof that not every literary adaptation starring James Franco is based on the works of John Steinbeck or William Faulkner. This upcoming miniseries hails from legendary horror author Stephen King (whose works outside of the scary realm are equally as prolific as those within it) and focuses on a small-town school teacher who realizes he is able to travel through time via a door in a local diner. Franco previously snagged the lead role as the teacher Jake Epping, who takes it upon himself to prevent the assassination of JFK, and the show has now secured a director and supporting cast.

Academy Award winner Kevin McDonald (The Last King Of Scotland) has signed on to direct and executive produce the first two episodes of the nine-hour event series. He will work from a script penned by Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), who is expected to seriously curtail King »

Amy Schumer Tweets Then Deletes Photo of Her Entertainment Weekly Cover "Without Airbrushing"

2 April 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Internet is fast, but it looks like for once, someone was faster. Amy Schumer, our personal role model and the queen of our hearts, is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week, naked and covered in mini bottles of alcohol in a boozy ode to American Beauty. She looks foxy as hell, of course, but we are a bit worried about her safety during this photo shoot as one wrong move means shards of glass all up in her naughty bits. Naughty Shards, we think is the medical term. (Yes, we know they were probably plastic but just…let us have the Naught Shards joke, Ok?) Anyway, minutes after her cover went live on Twitter, the 33-year-old Trainwreck star posted a photo of what looked like an image from »

Daniel Craig's James Bond returns in first trailer for Spectre

27 March 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Spectre, the title of the next 007 film, is actually a callback to S.P.E.C.T.R.E. – the Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion – an anti-MI6 (with a pretty great acronym) that made its first appearance in Dr. No (1962). Honestly, as much as we love James Bond (Daniel Craig) and all of his one-letter friends, you have to get behind an evil corporation with the word “Revenge” in their name.

Director Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) announced his Spectre cast this passed December, and together they’ve filmed in Rome, Mexico City, and on the slopes in Austria.

Even though Dame Judi Dench won’t be reprising her role of M, the cast for Spectre is still stacked, boasting Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Monica Belluci, Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour), Andrew Scott (“Sherlock”), and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy).

Watch: The First & Final Frames Side-by-Side - What Can We Learn?

19 March 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Filmmakers are very crafty storytellers. The best ones know how to use the visual medium known as cinema to not only tell a story, but make us feel emotions of all kinds, and empathize with characters and people we have never met before. Filmmakers are also adept enough to link themes and patterns in the story through visual cues. In this video essay from Jacob T. Swinney titled First and Final Frames, he shows us how important the opening and closing shots are in every movie. At first you may think they have no connection, but it'll really hit you when you see the Gone Girl moment and it builds from there. This montage of over 50 films, showing the opening/closing shots side-by-side, also features the music "Any Other Name" by Thomas Newman from the American Beauty soundtrack. It's much more mesmerizing than I was expecting. Thanks to @markdearman on Twitter for the tip. »

Hard to believe: John Williams is not scoring Steven Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies'

18 March 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the first time in almost 30 years a Steven Spielberg film will not be scored by John Williams.  That was the sad news DreamWorks Studios tried to avoid making headlines with this morning with the announcement that Thomas Newman would compose the music for Spielberg's upcoming thriller "Bridge of Spies." According to a release from the studio through distributor Walt Disney Pictures, Williams work schedule "was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected."   The 83-year-old composer has enjoyed a remarkable career winning five Academy Awards including three Oscars for Spielberg films "E.T.," "Schindler's List" and "Jaws."  The duo most recently collaborated on 2013's "Lincoln" for which Williams also earned an Original Score nomination. Williams' last theatrical work was 2013's "The Book Thief" which was his 49th nomination. He has also won a remarkable 22 Grammy Awards. Williams is still expected to »

DreamWorks Pictures'/Fox 2000 Pictures' upcoming dramatic thriller directed by three-time Academy Award&#174-winning director Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler's List) and starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia), has been, as previously announced, titled Bridge of Spies.
