10 Unknown Actors Who Stole Movies Out From Their Famous Leads

4 March 2014 8:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

You could say that the star of a movie puts butts in seats. Their name shines above the posters and on trailers, establishing a connection with a larger pre-existing fan base. But how does one reach such heights? Nobody is an A-Lister straight off the bat. It can take years of slogging away to acquire the appeal of someone like Brad Pitt or Tom Hanks as they’re can be the driving force behind a picture; the person the whole film and advertising campaign revolves around.

However, once in a while an actor will rise up and quite literally steal the show. They’ll put in a performance so inspired and well-crafted, the ‘intended star’ will cease to shine so brightly in comparison. All of a sudden, the public will take a vested interest in a new talent. All it takes is one performance; an opportunity only a »

Film Review: ‘Jai Ho’

29 January 2014 11:49 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One wasn’t expecting much more than headbanging cheap thrills from the new Bollywood action movie “Jai Ho,” in which Salman Khan, a.k.a. The Muscles from Mumbai (that sobriquet is our own invention), carries to a new level of slapdash vulgarity the blunt-force, post-”Matrix” style of action moviemaking that rules the roost now in Hindi cinema. When you set your sites that low, and still emerge disappointed two-and-a-half-hours later, that’s a sad day at the movies. Because Salman Khan is one the fabled Three Khans, Bollywood’s top film stars for over two decades, the earnings of “Jai Ho” are being measured against the recent huge hits of Shah Rukh Khan (“Chennai Express”) and Aamir Khan (“Dhoom 3″). At $3.5 million for its first two days of domestic release, about half what those record-breaking pics pulled in, “Jai Ho” is so far considered only an “average” hit.

Jai Ho Movie Review

26 January 2014 6:25 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Take any day in your life that you wish you had a helping hand. A day you may have forgotten your wallet, when you needed to pay for your bus ticket. A day your car broke down, when you had to go to an interview. What if a stranger gave you that helping hand? No questions asked and in return, didn’t ask for money or a favour. Just that you help another when the chance came to you. Would you? Jai Ho shows us how a common man that left his army life, takes on the fight to help humanity, and for a bit of masala, bashes a few bad guys along the way.

Based on the concept from Pay It Forward (2000), A. R. Murugadoss’ designed the power packed story for his film Stalin (2006). Being the remake season that it was (or is) the film’s bumper success made »

Behind every great film, not enough women

24 January 2014 12:42 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Women obliterated barriers in Hollywood last year: ­Katniss Everdeen topped the domestic box office in the female-co-produced The Hunger Games: Catching Fire; Disney’s ­animated smash Frozen redefined the princess genre with Jennifer Lee as one of two directors at the helm; and two films from power producer Megan Ellison (American ­Hustle and Her) were just nominated for Best Picture.

But take one step back from the A-list and the picture isn’t so rosy. According to the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film’s Celluloid Ceiling report, 2013 marked a dismal year for women in behind-the-scenes jobs on the top 250 grossing movies. »
