Australia's a Dud—So Is Nicole Kidman Over?

2 December 2008 11:29 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Australia is kind of a bust after debuting at No. 5, right? What happens to a big-name star like Nicole Kidman after something like this? Does she lose status? —Mary Woods Power producers and agents have been rumbling for years that Nicole Kidman has passed her prime, that her once-endless list of fascinating attributes has dwindled to include only her hypnotically featureless forehead. Off the record, these sources have said that she's delivered too few bona fide hits, that she has continuously lost power since The Others in 2001. Yet—like a very leggy monster from the world of H.P. Lovecraft—she manages, every few years, to rise up from her burrow and feed. The reason is »

First Look: Rachel Weisz in Alejandro Amenábar's Agora

30 November 2008 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

All we've seen this holiday weekend is nothing but first look photo debuts and today we have yet another. Back in April we wrote about a film called Agora where filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar wanted to allow "the audience to see, feel and smell a remote civilization as if it were as real as today." The civilization in question - the Egyptians during the 4th century Ad. In the film, Rachel Weisz stars as astrologer and philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria who fights to save the collected wisdom of the ancient world. Courtesy of (via Twitch), we've got our first look at Rachel Weisz and Amenábar working on set. Below you'll see Alejandro Amenábar, of Open Your Eyes, The Others, and The Sea Inside, directing Weisz on the elaborate set.

Kidman's Message Helps Sailors Win Olympic Gold

20 August 2008 12:03 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Nicole Kidman sent a message of support to the Australian men's sailing team to bring home Olympic gold.

The Others star sent a good luck message to Malcolm Page and Nathan Wilmot - and they scooped a gold medal just hours later.

Page admits at first he rejected "the unknown number" on his cell phone before realising it was Kidman.

He says, "I was getting breakfast and thought, 'Ah, I just don't want to talk to her today,' so I bumped it. Then two seconds later there was a message from Nicole wishing us good luck."

"I ended up returning her call. She was very happy."

Page also claims Kidman was surprised to learn their boat was named The Australian, after the star's upcoming movie.

He adds, "She was very surprised that we do have a tradition of naming our boats after her movies and she's just really stoked to be part of a team."

Page and Wilmot have named previous boats after Kidman's films, including Days of Thunder and Dead Calm. »

Ted's Top 10 Thought They Were Original!

4 July 2008 9:14 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Low-budget filmmakers often regurgitate plotlines to make a buck or two on whatever's hot. Look at the 1974 blaxploitation flick Abby (a blatant Exorcist rip-off) or the recent Transmorphers (which needs no further clarification). Unless it's a sanctioned remake, they rarely cite their source material… and even when they're blatant about it, the casual moviegoer can pick up on what The DaVinci Treasure is trying to cash in on. Let's face it, most of these folks aren't claiming to be innovative.

But what happens when they do claim to be original? On top of that, what happens when the tables are turned and Hollywood rips off lesser-known (or simply outdated) features? It doesn't just happen… it happens all the time – especially in genre films.

Just because their names are Ridley Scott, Michael Bay, and Sam Raimi doesn't mean they shouldn't cite their source material. "Homages" my adorable butt. These are rip-offs, »
