New Trailer Introduces Nicole Kidman As Werner Herzog’s Queen Of The Desert

3 July 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The gender gap in Hollywood may be something that is only now being openly discussed, but it has never really been much of a secret. While progress can be seen, slowly creeping into many genres, it is perhaps the biopic that seems to be desperately clinging on to an unconscious love of white men. Every year, we are bombarded with tales of heroic, interesting and complex men – towering historical figures that have shaped and influenced the world we live in. In fact, if you drew your information from cinema only, you could be forgiven for believing that women have contributed very little – such is the extent of erasure on display. You might even get quite excited about the latest film from writer-director Werner Herzog, titled Queen Of The Desert.

Starring Nicole Kidman, the film tells the story of Gertrude Bell, and her fascinating life spent travelling and working as a »

Michael Fassbender looks nothing like Steve Jobs: 7 actors who don't resemble real-life counterparts

2 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.

We take a look at a handful of stars who don't look anything like the real-life people they played.

1. Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

As brilliant an actor as the Shame star is, it's clear from the trailers for Danny Boyle's biopic that little has been done to make Fassbender look like the man he's portraying. Ashton Kutcher has him beat in that department (as does Noah Wyle if you go all the way back to Pirates of Silicon Valley), but with the talent involved here we're expecting Steve Jobs to be a cut above Jobs.

Intriguingly, prior to Fassbender's casting Christian Bale was circling the role before bowing out due to worries »

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. »

He’s attached to make a film about legendary Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev.The HoursDavid Hare – who also wrote The Reader, in which Fiennes appeared, is at work on the script for the director and his regular producing collaborator Gabrielle Tana.

The team has the rights to Julie Kavangh’s biography Nureyev: The Life. His celebrated dance career saw him sharing the Royal »

Nicole Kidman’s Grace Kelly biopic goes from Cannes to Lifetime

8 April 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From the festival circuit to your couch on a lazy Thursday afternoon.

That is the course for Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco, which will sees it’s U.S. premiere on Lifetime after opening the Cannes Film Festival a year ago. Deadline reported the news on Tuesday.

While the film hit theaters (to tepid responses by critics) overseas, it had yet to open in American theaters. It was also in the midst of controversy after The Weinstein Company and director Olivier Dahan fought of cuts. Deadline mentions that it is unclear whether Lifetime will use the cut by Dahan or Weinstein’s. The director’s cut was used in the premiere at Cannes.

In an interview with Deadline at Sundance this year, Harvey Weinstein hinted at the possibility that the film could find life on TV rather than a theatrical run. “The script we signed on for was like The King’s Speech, »

Shocker: Weinstein's Cannes Opener 'Grace of Monaco' Goes to Lifetime

8 April 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Harvey Weinstein, who had closed a $5 million deal for U.S. rights to the $35 million "Grace of Monaco" starring Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman (TWC's "The Hours") in her seventh movie with him, as 60s era Grace Kelly, originally slated the film for November 2013 for an Oscar season run, promoting it at Cannes 2013, but then postponed it to spring 2014. Weinstein was furious when French filmmaker Olivier Dahan--who was looking to follow on the success of "La Vie En Rose," which had won an Oscar for Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf--booked it as the opening night movie at Cannes 2014 just ahead of its global release.  Watch: Nicole Kidman Talks 'Strangerland' and 'Grace of Monaco' (Video Interview) It was the wrong way to introduce a middlebrow melodrama that should never have had awards in its sights. In “Grace of Monaco,” Nicole Kidman is strong as poised Oscar-winning movie star Grace Kelly, who in 1962 faced the reality. »

12 Broadway Shows with Hollywood Connections in 2015

All the world is a stage. But what is on that stage these days, at least when it comes to the Great White Way, is increasingly likely to be either based on a movie, boast a movie star as the headliner or both. “The Audience” recently opened on Broadway to solid reviews as Helen Mirren once again stepping into the sensible shoes of Elizabeth II, the role that won her a 2006 Oscar in “The Queen,” which was also written by Peter Morgan. Directed by Stephen Daldry (“The Hours” and “Billy Elliot,” both the film and musical), the play offers a fly-on-the-wall perspective on Her Majesty’s private meetings with a parade of prime ministers through the years.

Ed Harris Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

13 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No, Ed Harris, did not throw a chair at Marcia Gay Harden while filming “Pollock,” he wants you to know.

“I didn’t throw it at her,” he says of the Hollywood urban myth. “I smashed it on the ground. She wasn’t quite getting to the point that she needed to and we had a really good relationship and it just got her adrenaline flowing and helped her out a little bit.”

Whether it was the flying furniture that prodded her along or his directorial savvy, Harris’ instinct was spot-on. The actor-cum-helmer of the 2000 biopic helped to propel Harden toward an Oscar for her supporting role as Lee Krasner, the acclaimed painter and long-suffering wife of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, who tragically died in a drunken driving accident.
