Ralph Fiennes: 'We were told there was no money and no presents for Christmas'

10 December 2011 1:38 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With six children, his parents struggled to make ends meet. Now Ralph Fiennes is the toast of Hollywood – and making his directorial debut with Coriolanus. He tells Xan Brooks his story

Ralph Fiennes's trailer sits on a patch of wasteland beside the river and near the airport, in a neck of east London that's barely London. The cabbie can't find it and keeps driving in circles, his irritation rising as the planes rumble overhead. Either the satnav is scrambled or the address does not exist. "It's meant to be here but there's nothing there," he grumbles. "It's not a place, it's off the map."

It's only later, safely arrived, that it strikes me that the non-place may well be the best place to meet Ralph Fiennes, an actor who does not so much inhabit his roles as hide out in them and a man who approaches press interviews with »

Box-Office Oracle: 'New Year's Eve' Will Win the Weekend, but Don't Expect 'Valentine's Day' Dollars

8 December 2011 2:02 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't think anyone can force me to talk about New Year's Eve, can they? (Checks contract) Whew, I'm good, which saves me from filing a hostile work environment claim. Brad dodged a bullet there. Which brings us to the second weekend of December, where art house and mainstream collide. Let's break it down! Laremy predicted the #1 movie correctly 0 Weeks In A Row New Year's Eve 77 stars. 17 plotlines. 12 actual "jokes". Ladies and gentleman, I give you New Year's Eve!

When we look to predict where the non-sequel will end up we start with Valentine's Day, which opened with a blistering $56m, over $15k per theater. This film will not be making those kind of dollars, partly due to time of year, possibly due to fatigue with the franchise (which bled 70 percent in its second weekend). The tracking is $25m - $30m, which feels right, except for the fact that this »

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray $39.99

Studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Bingbing Li embraces life in Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.

Director Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club) weaves a contemporary tale with an old-world fable in the historical period drama Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, based on Lisa See’s best-selling novel of the same name.

Amid the civil unrest and gender discrimination of the era, the pair deals with life’s hardships together until they are separated by marriage and childbirth. But the sworn sisters continue to communicate through the secret Chinese language of “nushu,” hiding their »

My First Job: ‘Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey

17 August 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

Everett Tyler Posey in “Maid in Manhattan” (2002)

Since he was nine-years-old, Tyler Posey has been acting, both on the big screen and small. Born in Santa Monica, Calif., Posey knew from an early age that he wanted to be in the spotlight. Which is why it comes as no surprise that his first job was in a commercial. (It also helps that his father, John, is an actor/writer.)

Jennifer Lopez things she is a ''really great actress''. The 'Maid in Manhattan' star - who has appeared in critically panned movies 'Gigli' and 'Jersey Girl' - believes she is great in front of a camera and confident in her abilities as a performer. She said: ''I think I'm a really great performer. I think I'm a really great actress. I feel confident in those things - that's a better way to say it.'' However the 42-year-old singer-and-actress admits she is not so confident in her voice, but still believes there is a place for »

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

22 July 2011 6:01 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Directed by: Wayne Wang

Cast: Gianna Jun, Bingbing Li, Hugh Jackman

Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: July 22, 2011 (Chicago)

Plot: Two women (Jun, Li) are best friends for life, as their dedication to their companionship is presented in two different centuries.

Who’S It For?: Everyone’s got a best friend, but this movie definitely isn’t for everyone. It requires a tolerance for schmaltz, along with an interest in seeing a “Bffl” story that happens in mid-1800′s China.

Expectations: Going into this film, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m admittedly not too familiar with Wayne Wang, who has directed both The Joy Lucky Club and then later Maid in Manhattan.

Scorecard (0-10)


Gianna Jun as Sophia/Snow Flower: Despite all of the emotional weight that is put on Sophia (especially as she read’s Lily »

Everett A scene from “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Straddling early-19th-century China and modern Shanghai, Wayne Wang’s “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” tells the story of two sets of women that share a deep bond, a love, that is impermeable to men. Adapted from the bestselling 2005 Lisa See novel, the film diverges from the book, adding the modernized cast of characters. In an attempt to streamline the stories, Li Bingbing and Gianna Jun, the stars of the film, »

Review | "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" Is Pretty, But Not Wayne Wang's Finest Moment

15 July 2011 7:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

These days, Wayne Wang works in two different modes as a filmmaker and they rarely intersect. The Wang responsible for sizable operations like "Maid in Manhattan" and "Because of Winn-Dixie" has little in common with the Wang behind comparably microbudget productions like "The Princess of Nebraska" (which premiered on YouTube) and his latest work, "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan," another under-the-radar release (albeit through Fox Searchlight, which is putting »

Two ‘American Idol’ Judges Confirmed For Next Season: Which One May Not Return?

29 June 2011 4:31 PM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

After one of the most successful seasons of ‘American Idol’ to date, fans of the show were looking forward to seeing all three fabulous judges return — yet one judge is still deciding whether or not to come back!

A Fox rep confirmed to E! News today that while judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler are indeed most definitely coming back to American Idol (hardly shocking as Steven signed a multi-year contract), Jennifer Lopez is not positive about her return.

The multi-talented mogul is not certain she can dedicate as much time to just one project such as American Idol, but sources speculate J. Lo may just be angling for a pay raise, a difficult feat considering she banked a $12 million contract for just one season.

Still, this move is a bit surprising given Jen’s popularity on the show, her emotional investment in the contestants — and her ensuing career boom. »

'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon' Has Loads Of Energon And... Frances McDormand?

28 June 2011 7:16 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Of all the surprises that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" has in store for moviegoers, there's perhaps no greater surprise than this: the blockbuster-to-be has attracted the likes of Oscar-winner Frances McDormand.

Yes, the woman whose diverse and staggeringly impressive resume which includes "Almost Famous," "Mississippi Burning," "Blood Simple" and, of course, "Fargo," will be appearing alongside Autobots, Decepticons and super-models in the third installment of Michael Bay's action-packed "Transformers" franchise. To say it's a bit of a departure (though, to be fair, the 54-year-old was in 2005's "Aeon Flux") is a bit of an understatement, but McDormand is hardly the first respected actor to appear in a popcorn flick.

As we countdown to the latest "Transformers" which features none other than Mrs. Joel Coen herself, we look back at five other top-tier actors and their surprising transitions to mainstream movies.

Jennifer Lopez In Talks For Parker And What To Expect When You're Expecting

21 June 2011 10:53 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jennifer Lopez has really become an unwatchable actress, not because she's terrible at what she does, but because the projects that she chooses are absolutely terrible. In the last decade she's put her name to some truly notable pieces of shit like Gigli, Monster In Law, and Maid in Manhattan, yet she keeps plugging away and gets people to hire her. I'm as surprised as anybody that this is a casting announcement not just about one project, but two. Deadline has learned that Lopez has entered talks to star in both the Jason Statham action film Parker and What To Expect When You're Expecting. In the former, directed by Taylor Hackford and based on the Donald Westlake series of mystery novels, Lopez will play Leslie, the female lead who helps Parker (Statham), a professional criminal, on a heist. The latter, based on the world famous pregnancy book by Heidi Murkoff »

The New York Post's Cindy Adams quotes New York mayor Michael Bloomberg explaining why nobody's come forward to defend--or even support--Rep. Anthony Weiner. "Like Spitzer, he had no friends," Adams quotes Bloomberg, who hosted a "Made in New York" party at Gracie Mansion. Bloomberg said Weiner should've "owned up right away" to his history of sexting and using social media to flirt--and more--with young women. »

Teen Wolf Comes to MTV Tonight: The Not-the-Eighties-Any-More Version

5 June 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

With a tagline of “Love. Be Afraid,” this is Not a serialized version of Michael J. Fox’s chucklefest film from a couple of decades ago. Rather, MTV’s Teen Wolf is much closer to The Vampire Diaries but with younger and perhaps Even Better-looking cast members. I’m not kidding; I’ve seen these people in person.

The panel for Teen Wolf at San Diego Comic Con last summer was a last-minute replacement for the Terra Nova panel that was scheduled and yanked. None of us in the room were amused when we heard the news. As we watched the scenes that had been filmed so far, however, most of us were pleasantly surprised. Take a look at this trailer and judge for yourself:

Knowing how huge a fan I am of the original movies, our friends at Sky have been in touch to let us know that the TV version of Teen Wolf is coming to Sky Living/HD this July. The new series, which is reportedly a sexier and darker take on the 1980’s cult classic movie, debuts in the UK just a few weeks after its Us premiere…

From Sky’s press release:

With homages to the much loved and iconic original movie, new Teen Wolf is based around the socially awkward Scott McCall (Tyler Posey, Maid in Manhattan, Brothers and Sisters), the quintessential outsider, whose life is turned upside down after a terrifying encounter with a werewolf.
