Critics Trash James Franco's Bizarre Poetry on Heath Ledger

7 July 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Even James Franco isn't immune to bad poetry.

Looks like James Franco's debut collection of poetry, Directing Herbert White, isn't getting the best reviews.

In fact, it's pretty much the opposite.

One particular poem getting plenty of attention/hate?

Franco's poem about the late Heath Ledger (via The Telegraph), who he reveals was his competition for roles earlier in his career.

"There had been a time

When we were up for the same roles,

10 Things I Hate about You

(Based on The Taming of the Shrew),

And The Patriot

Funny, you were Australian and so was Mel –

You were the knight in A Knight's Tale..."

"North Korea recently condemned the actor James Franco's upcoming film, The Interview, as 'an act of terrorism and war.' Let's hope they don't find out about his poems," The Telegraph's Charlotte Runcie writes in her scathing review.

Ouch.

Guardians of the Galaxy international trailer analysis

18 June 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The second international trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy has arrived, and it's far more traditionally epic than the earlier, more offbeat, comedic trailers. This is arguably a great move. For one thing, epic tales of heroes saving the world never get old.

For another thing, the film's quirky sense of humour runs the risk of undercutting the superhero narrative, with earlier trailers emphasising just how ill-suited these characters are to being heroes, both pragmatically and morally.

The pragmatic considerations allow for humour, with the tension between expectations and reality. Previous sci-fi films, such as the Star Trek spoof Galaxy Quest and Joss Whedon's multi-genre Firefly continuation Serenity, have pulled this off successfully. However, going by previous trailers, Guardians of the Galaxy is aiming for an unusual balance of humour, and it remains to be seen whether this will work across the entire film. Thus, this trailer smartly tones »

First image of Tom Hardy as the Kray twins in Legend

12 June 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Not content with playing notorious British criminal Charles Bronson, Legend will see Tom Hardy stepping into the shoes of the Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie, who controlled much of London's Organised crime in the 1960's. Hardy is pulling double duty for director Brian Helgeland (Payback, A Knight's Tale), and judging form the below picture from Working Title, he certainly looks the part (s). Considering the man's acting chops, I have the feeling he is going to absolutely kill it in this movie which will see him essentially play two very different roles. No release date has been given yet.

First Look: Tom Hardy Doubles Down as Criminal Twins in 'Legend'

12 June 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in February, we learned that Inception and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy would star in Legend as twin gangster brothers Ronald and Reginald Kray, known for their criminal activities in London throughout the 50s and 60s. Director Brian Helgeland (Payback, 42) is at the helm of the film, and now we have a first look photo of Hardy as both of the brothers. And through the magic of photoshop or special effects, we see them both in the same image. There's a clear difference between the two characters, despite being identical twins, and we can't wait to see how Hardy fares with both performances. Look now! Here's the first look at Tom Hardy in Brian Helgeland's Legend (via The Playlist): Legend is written and directed by Brian Helgeland (A Knight's Tale, Payback, 42). Tom Hardy plays Ronie & Reggie Kray, British criminals who ran a gang called The Firm, »

The 101 Best Sports Movies of All Time

20 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.

And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

35 Ways We'll Always Remember Heath Ledger

4 April 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Today would have been Heath Ledger's 35th birthday. Heath first hit the Hollywood scene in 1999, stealing hearts and winning fans as Patrick Vernon in 10 Things I Hate About You. From there, the Australian actor became a bona fide heartthrob with roles in The Patriot and A Knight's Tale, and he later entered Oscars territory with his memorable performances in Brokeback Mountain and The Dark Knight. Tragically, Heath passed away in January 2008, but six years later, he continues to live on through his unforgettable roles. In honor of his birthday, here are 35 ways we'll always remember Heath Ledger. View Slideshow › »

Ron Moore on Helix, Battlestar and rebooting old favourites

3 February 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ron Moore has earned a reputation as the king of reboots - the man who brought Battlestar Galactica back to our screens in spectacular fashion has also been attached to new versions of Wild Wild West and A Knight's Tale in the past few years - but his latest project is Channel 5's Us import Helix, a claustrophobic sci-fi thriller series and a wholly original production.

"When you do something original, it's one set of challenges - staring at the blank page and trying to figure out what it is," Moore explains. "But when you're starting with a book or an existing property, it's a different set of challenges.

"You think, how can I move these pieces around in a different way? How can I give this familiarity without it feeling stale? They're different intellectual puzzles, but I enjoy both ways of working."

Moore puts the string of reboots on »
