The Wrap reports that Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman ("The Hours") is in negotiations for a key role in director Patty Jenkins film adaptation of "Wonder Woman." The film stars actress Gal Gadot ("Fast & Furious 6") as the Amazonian princess and Chris Pine ("Star Trek") as her love interest, Officer Steve Trevor.
Inside sources suggest Kidman's role is a high-ranking Amazonian warrior or would most likely be the Queen of the Amazons, Hyppolyta. In the comic books, Hyppolyta is the ruler of the Amazonian island of Themyscira and just so happens to be the biological mother of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman.
Director Zack Snyder and his wife Deborah Snyder are producing the film alongside Charles Roven. Screenwriter Jason Fuchs wrote the recent draft of the story. Gal Gadots Wonder Woman will first make her live-action appearance in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" which will be released on March 25th, »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at why more actors than ever are promoting products…
The imminent release of the new Bond film, means we can expect a few things; exotic locations, impressive stunts, thinly veiled misogyny and, perhaps most importantly, lucrative commercial tie ins.
If you’ve been to the cinema in Britain recently, or even just passed a bus stop, you’ll probably have seen Naomie Harris advertising the new Sony Xperia Z5. If you’ve opened a broadsheet, you’ll have seen Daniel Craig endorsing Omega watches. It’s standard procedure for Bond films; brands get to be associated with an iconic film series, and the studios get the latest products, and a huge chunk of cash to fun their films. You won’t see it in the UK, but Daniel Craig appears in Heineken adverts in the Us; they paid £28 million to appear in Skyfall, so it »

It’s not every day that a three-time Oscar nominee for directing decides on a foreign language film to be his next project, but that’s exactly what Stephen Daldry of Billy Elliot, The Hours, and The Reader fame has done. Following in the footsteps of fellow Brit Danny Boyle—whose journey to India for Slumdog Millionaire earned his sole nomination and subsequently an Oscar win—Daldry takes on the novel Trash written by Andy Mulligan about three impoverished boys working as garbage pickers who find something in their nameless city’s landfill that sparks a police manhunt with grave political stakes. Adapted by Richard Curtis and situated in Brazil with corruption regarding its looming Olympics, this effectively tense adventure also delivers the heart and heroism audiences love.
Will it spell the same success as Boyle’s phenomenon? I doubt it. Not only is Portuguese used so prevalently that this »

The Australian stunner had split from Tom Cruise two years before nabbing Best Actress honors for her role as Virginia Woolf in "The Hours, and opened up at the Women In the World summit in London on Friday about the personal struggles she faced following the high-profile divorce.
"To be completely honest, I was running from my life at that time. I wasn't able to handle the reality of my life," ...

Nicole Kidman recalls the personal turmoil she underwent following her split from first husband Tom Cruise and how she felt the "loneliest" she had ever felt after winning an Oscar. At the Women In the World Summit in London on Thursday, the 48-year-old Oscar-winning actress talked about her life after their breakup, her husband Keith Urban, and being a mother of four children from both relationships. Kidman was asked if she thinks the "difficult time" in the years following her split from Cruise unleashed a lot of creativity in her, given that Moulin Rouge! and The Hours, which earned the actress her first and only Oscar, were released »
Nicole Kidman is getting extremely candid about some tough subjects -- namely, her very public split from Tom Cruise and her children with her ex and current husband Keith Urban. The actress was a very special guest during the Women In the World Summit in London on Thursday, where she spoke openly about her struggles following her divorce, her career and having children through almost every avenue available. Kidman was asked if the "difficult time" of her split from Tom unleashed creativity in her, as the separation was followed by roles in films like "The Hours" and "Moulin Rouge." "I was running from my life at that time. I wasn’t able to handle the reality of my life and as an actor, you have this wonderful thing where you can get lost in somebody else’s life and become somebody else for a period of time," she revealed. It's an interesting question, »

It was a year ago when many were wondering if Stephen Daldry‘s Oscar bait streak would continue with Trash. However, after a premiere at Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival, the latest drama from the director of The Hours and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close never saw a U.S. release. But now it’s quietly coming this October, and […] »

Titled Trash, the film is Daldry’s fifth feature-length directorial effort. The film itself is an adaptation of Andy Mulligan’s 2010 novel, with three newcomers in the lead roles in Luis Eduardo, Rickson Tevez, and Gabriel Weinstein. Richard Curtis wrote the screenplay, and the supporting cast includes Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, and Rooney Mara.
The film’s synopsis is as follows:
When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael and Gardo, realize that what they’ve found must be important.
This is Daldry’s first »

Stephen Daldry occupies a rarefied position. He is one of the few filmmakers to have been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director four times in a row and for his first four films: “Billy Elliott,” “The Hours,” “The Reader” and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” (three of the four were also nominated for Best Picture). Perhaps after years of Oscar-bait material —he has directed six actors in Oscar-nominated performances, namely Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, and Max von Sydow— Daldry has switched gears for “Trash” a movie set in the slums of Rio with big stars cast in supporting roles.
