Watch: Nicole Kidman Fearlessly Takes on Sensual 'Strangerland' (Exclusive Video Interview)

1 July 2015 7:48 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses, from her Oscar-winning role as a depressed Virginia Woolf in "The Hours" and warbling woman of the night in "Moulin Rouge!" to the grieving mother in "Rabbit Hole," aggressive newswoman on the rise in "To Die For," and sexy turn in "Paperboy." I talked to her on a chilly Sundance balcony right before her latest film "Strangerland" made its debut in the World competition.   "Strangerland" is a gorgeously moody outback thriller shot in Alice Springs about a pharmacist (Joseph Fiennes, replacing originally cast Guy Pearce) and his wife (Kidman) who move to a new town after their sex-crazed 15-year-old daughter has an affair with a teacher. They haven't had a chance to settle down when the girl and her younger brother vanish during a dust storm, presumably into the desert, spawning all sorts of talk and suspicion as the town police chief (Hugo Weaving) tries to. »

Ewan McGregor admits he is not a 'Star Wars' fanatic

21 June 2015 5:48 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Edinburgh: Scottish actor gives talk about 22-year acting career including new role as Jesus in Last Days In The Desert.

Ewan McGregor revealed to an audience at the Edinburgh International Film Festival (Eiff) on Sunday that he would be willing to reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi to tell the story of Stars Wars between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back should Disney ever wish to do so.

The comments came during an on-stage interview in which the Scottish star looked back over the highlights of his career thus far and chose his words carefully on the subject of the forthcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

The actor seemed not to be the most rabid of fanboys and declared: “I’m not a fanatical person.”

Still, he said he was impressed by the trailer - “It looks like [Jj Abrams] he absolutely nailed it” - except for the lightsaber’s updated design.

In Remembrance of the Last Classic Horror Legend Christopher Lee

15 June 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Christopher Lee was born Christopher Frank Cardini in Belgravia England on May 27 1922. He served the Special Forces in World War 2 but has never discussed his role as he said he was bound an oath of secrecy. Though he began acting in the midforties in films like Hamlet and Moulin Rouge it wasnt until 1957 and 1958s The Curse of Frankenstein and The Horror of Dracula from Englands classic and prolific Hammer Studios that he began to achieve true notoriety. Both of these movies were huge successes and put the studio on the map as well as its two lead stars Peter Cushing (who play his adversary many times onscreen but was his close friend in real life) and Christopher Lee. »

The Voice's Kimberly Nichole Talks 'What's Up,' 'House of the Rising Sun' and Industry Ageism

14 June 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Voice‘s Kimberly Nichole would like to remind America that “Black Girls Rock” isn’t just an awards show, it’s a musical reality.

“Throughout my career, it’s been frustrating to me that when I say, ‘I sing rock music,’ people are always surprised,” says Season 8’s sixth-place finisher. “People don’t know the history of rock music, how it evolved from the African-American spirituals, from the sharecroppers singing songs, to the blues, and then to rock music.”

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »

Christopher Lee, Actor Who Made Dracula Count Again, Dies at 93

11 June 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Lee, the second most famous Dracula of the 20th century — an impressive feat — and a memorably irrepressible villain in James Bond film “The Man With the Golden Gun,” in the Star Wars films and in “The Lord of the Rings” pics, has died. He was 93.

Lee appeared in 10 films as Count Dracula (nine if his uncredited role in the comedy “One More Time” is excluded).

His first role for famed British horror factory Hammer Films was not the Transylvanian vampire, however, but Frankenstein’s Monster in 1957’s “The Curse of Frankenstein.” His close friend Peter Cushing, with whom he would co-star in horror films frequently, starred as the Baron.

Lee made his first appearance as the sharp-toothed Count in 1958’s “Horror of Dracula.”

For reasons not quite certain, he skipped the 1960 sequel “Brides of Dracula,” but he returned to the role for 1965’s “Dracula: Prince of Darkness” — a movie »

DVD Obscura: The New Indie and International Movies You Need to Watch

10 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

New Indie: The current wave of screen musicals – from Moulin Rouge! and Chicago to Les Misérables and Into the Woods — favors the grand and the splashy, but there’s no rule that says the genre has to include towering sets and hundreds of backup dancers. For a more stripped-down but still potent musical, check out the bittersweet romance The Last Five Years (Anchor Bay/Radius-twc), starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan as our guides through the beginning, middle and end of a relationship. The movie’s showiest gimmick is its timeline – actress Cathy (Kendrick) begins the movie after the breakup, and then in the next scene, author Jamie (Jordan) has just fallen in love with Cathy. She moves through the film backward and he forward, until they...

3D in the 21st Century. Come Into My World: The Dimensions of "Avatar"

1 May 2015 7:09 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

One way of telling the history of photographic arts is to describe a linear progression of more and more realistic picture-making, as if painter's brushes and pencils aimed mainly to approximate the human eye until, finally, photography emerged. (This is the premise André Bazin famously explored in “The Ontology of the Photographic Image.”) Given photography's automatic reproduction, painting could move on to express more boldly, more experimentally, more abstractly. Realism was no longer necessary. Incidentally, a lot of the most visible and most discussed uses of CGI and SFX in contemporary cinema have embodied images, actions, and temporalities that are far from realistic. These digital platforms enable visions of worlds that alter our own sufficiently so as to provide something—escape? Improvement? Color? It doesn't ultimately matter. The point is that the pixel has often been directed towards ends that seem to go against photography (and cinematography's) automatic capture of the world. »

Carey Mulligan on Her Tony Nom and ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’

30 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Carey Mulligan is having a busy week; Tuesday morning she was nominated for a Tony Award for best actress in a play for the current Broadway production of “Skylight.” And Friday sees the release of her latest film, an adaption of Thomas Hardy’s novel “Far From the Madding Crowd.” Directed by Thomas Vinterberg, the film tells the story of the proud and independent Bathsheba Everdene, and the three men who vie for her affections.

After bursting onto the scene with her Oscar-nominated turn in 2009’s “An Education,” Mulligan was quickly crowned the hot new It Girl by Hollywood. Mulligan admits it was an uncomfortable fit at the time, revealing she often cried after walking red carpets.

So instead of signing onto franchises and blockbusters, she preferred to seek out smaller films that paired her with some of her favorite directors – such as the Coen Brothers with “Inside Llewyn Davis” and Steve McQueen with “Shame. »

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: 10th Anniversary Trip Down Memory Lane

29 April 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's finally here, dance fans! It's the big blowout 10th anniversary celebration of "Dancing with the Stars," as they remind us of some of the wild, crazy, awkward, painful, and stellar moments of the past 20 seasons. There's a lot jam packed into this special, as past contestants and winners return to share in the fun.

During resident-opening-number-choreographer Mandy Moore's exciting first group routine, lots of stars return, hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews fly in on a giant "10," and the four judges, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman, and Julianne Hough, make their grand entrance. Lots of cutaways to the audience show many other past stars who have returned but are apparently not dancing tonight, like Sabrina Bryan, who we're reminded of also by last night's shocking elimination. Like Willow last night, Sabrina was a frontrunner in both of her seasons (5 and All-Star season 15), but she was eliminated in week 6 both times. »

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: A Shocking Elimination

28 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, dance fans, I don't know about you, but I'm officially angry. What an aggravating, disappointing result this week. Fortunately for the dancers, a scheduling snafu pushes the double elimination to next week, but I am not at all happy about who goes home tonight. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's look at the dancing first.

We're treated to a fun "spray-tanned tour through time," as Tom Bergeron introduces it, as the troupe and competitors show us dances from different eras-though it's not always clear, for example, how the 1950s jive differs from the '60s jive. Still, the dances are entertaining and the choreographers have fun with their assigned eras. The competitors also dance double duty, with a second routine in the Dance-Off challenge.

Here's my Top 5 Dances:
