18 November 2014 3:41 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ok, so maybe Fifty Shades of Grey isn't for everyone… There's already one celeb who's speaking out against the film, taking aim at the one and only Mr. Christian Grey, Jamie Dornan. Anna Kendrick took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the controversial casting, writing, "The '50 Shades of Grey' dude looks just like 'Love Actually' kid. I feel less *turned on* and more like....I should call child services..." Who she's actually referring to is Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who has been in Game of Thrones and The Maze Runner since, but we can kinda see the resemblance. Clearly Kendrick won't be rushing to grab seats at the nearest theater come »

The Walking Dead: 5 Things Self Help Did Right (And 5 It Didn’t)

11 November 2014 6:15 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

And you’re back in the room. Or actually, maybe not: last week’s Slabtown seemed like a break from the main narrative of The Walking Dead, and that the show would presently be returning viewers back to the ongoing survival of the Rick Grimes Experience. Yet as time goes by it looks like the groups are getting more and more fractured, with Beth off having a grand old time in that weird high-rise police state, whilst Abraham leads a splinter faction that departed from the holy safe haven the group bedded down in after the Terminus debacle.

So Self Help again moved the focus away from the “main” characters of The Walking Dead – that bloke from Love Actually and his kid with the tiny head – and instead settled on some other members of the ensemble for a change, as the volunteers headed out on Eugene’s supposed mission »

The Walking Dead Flashback: Remember When Rick Grimes Was This Guy?

27 October 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After watching Rick Grimes (spoilers) brutally butcher the survivors of Terminus last night with a machete, I had to stop and think about just how far we’d come from season one, and even before that. The Walking Dead is never going to be a show that attracts too many Emmys, it seems, but that doesn’t mean the cast and crew aren’t doing a hell of a job, particularly in these late seasons, as the show just keeps getting better and better. In particular, I don’t think Andrew Lincoln gets enough credit for his haunting portrayal of Rick, who has gone through a ton in the last four or five years, and he’s brought many, many dimensions to the character. We’re getting (vaguely) close to Christmas now, so naturally one of my favorite holiday movies is on my mind, Love Actually. That reminded me how »

9 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hugh Grant has said that he dislikes the majority of the films he has appeared in.

The actor, who plays the lead in upcoming romantic comedy The Rewrite, told The Mirror that he turns down the majority of work he is offered now.

Hugh Grant: Nobody wanted me in Four Weddings

Grant, who has had roles in films including Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Bridget Jones' Diary, said: "I have pretty much hated any other film I've ever been in. But I liked this one.

"Nowadays I pretty much turn everything down anyway, because I just feel too old. Certainly for romantic comedy and certainly for showbusiness in general. Occasionally, they wheel me out."

The actor, who was speaking at the world premiere of The Rewrite, added that he does not consider his new film to be strictly a romantic comedy.

Rodrigo Santoro Helps Take Latinos Into the Mainstream (Exclusive)

9 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rio De Janeiro — One of Latin America’s highest-profile actors in Hollywood and beyond, Brazil’s Rodrigo Santoro, a memorable Xerxes in “30,” has hardly stopped.

But the parts he’s played of late not only underscore the illustrious thesping company he keeps, but just how far Latinos have come in sloughing off Latino type-casting.

Santoro wrapped two weeks ago his first TV series, playing an outlaw on the pilot for HBO’s “Westworld,” helmed by Jonathan Nolan for Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, and a series inspired in concept by the Yul Brynner movie classic.

He features in Steven Bernstein’s “brilliantly written” “Dominion,” produced by Richard Gladstein, with Rhys Ifans as Welsh bard Dylan Thomas, living out his last day on earth, and John Malkovich as his doctor, shot over the summer in Montreal. Santoro plays “a mysterious character who will reveal himself.” Santoro’s character is called Carlos, »

Both were previously rumoured to be attached to the project, an adaptation of a BBC comedy series than ran from 1968-77, but Catherine Zeta Jones is newly attached to the film as journalist Rose Winters.

Full Cast Revealed For The Dad’s Army Movie!

8 October 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Growing up, one of my favourite things to do was sit at my grandparents house and tuck down for an episode of the brilliant BBC sitcom Dad’s Army on a Saturday night. Week in. Week out. I think it was one of the first shows that I watched religiously, from beginning to end content lay, and absolutely loved sharing the many laughs contained throughout with my Grandad.

A new film is in the works, and today the full cast for it was revealed. Bill Nighy will head up a 2015 version of Dad’S Army as Wilson, along with Catherine Zeta Jones (Rose), Toby Jones (Manwaring), The Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison (Pike), Tom Courtenay as Corporal Jones, Michael Gambon as Godfrey, Danny Mays as (Walker), Bill Paterson (Fraser), Sarah Lancashire , Alison Steadman, Mark Gatiss and Annette Crosbie.

Shooting on the project is set to start this month in Yorkshire, England. »

Richard Curtis inspired by Tom Waits and Mariah Carey

6 October 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tony Curtis has identified Tom Waits and Mariah Carey as influences on Notting Hill and Love Actually.

A Waits track was influential in the development of Notting Hill, the filmmaker revealed.

"There's a version of 'Downtown Train' by Tom Waits performed by Everything But the Girl," he said at Cheltenham Literature Festival (via Gloucestershire Echo).

"When I was writing Notting Hill, that was all I listened too. There was something I sensed in the background and in the tone and in the mood of that song which is what I wanted to reach at the best moment of the film.

"Songs have always been an incredibly important bit of the inspiration for me."

Curtis also revealed Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas is You' inspired Love Actually.

He said that the song "seems to me to completely say how you want to feel about how extraordinary Christmas is".

Richard Curtis: 'Love Actually was a catastrophe'

5 October 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Richard Curtis has spoken about his 2003 film Love Actually, calling it a "catastrophe".

The writer and director revealed that he was disappointed with the film and wishes he'd had longer to work on it.

According to the Radio Times, Curtis spoke at the Cheltenham Literature Festival yesterday (October 4), saying: "The only nightmare scenario that I've been caught in was Love Actually, which worked at the read-through, and when we finished the film and I watched it edited, it was...a catastrophe."

He added that the film was difficult to manage because it was so vast in scale.

"Because there were 12 stories, [finding the right order] was like three-dimensional chess. And that was enormously difficult to finish or get right," he said.

The writer and director went on to say that he wished he'd had more time to work on the film, saying: "You could have played with it for all time – but it had to be out by Christmas. »

Colin Firth Is A Total Badass In The New Kingsman: The Secret Service Trailer

23 September 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Normally we're used to Colin Firth starring in films that are either politely funny (like Bridget Jones' Diary or Love Actually) or blisteringly dramatic (such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or, more recently, Devil's Knot.) However, there comes a time in an actor's career when they decide it's time to switch things up a bit and get a little more action-y. Which means that the trailer to Kingsman: The Secret Service marks Colin Firth's entry into the "later career badass" phase that Liam Neeson has been occupying as of late. 20th Century Fox's official YouTube channel dropped the latest trailer to Matthew Vaughn's latest directorial venture into the world of comic books last night, and it's even more stylish than the first trailer we received earlier this year. Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of Harry Hart (Firth,) a top spy for a secret branch of »

The Maze Runner Sprints To The Top Of The Us Box Office

21 September 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Liam Neeson may have delivered a joking promise to his former Love Actually co-star and current Maze Runner actor Thomas Brodie Sangster that his new thriller A Walk Among The Tombstones would outrun the teen novel adaptation, but it’s Neeson left puffing along in second place. The film based on James Dashner’s book crossed the finish line first at the Us box office this weekend.The Maze Runner, helped by opening on nearly a thousand more screens, much more promotion and a youth audience-friendly cast, took the top spot with $32.5 million, which given that the studio is already deep into pre-production on the sequel, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials (now dated for Sep 18, 2015), must come as a relief to 20th Century Fox. It might not compare to the runaway successes such as Twilight or The Hunger Games (it opened to a lower figure than Divergent), but it’s a »

Learn How To Survive the Apocalypse with Dylan O’Brien and the Guys from The Maze Runner

This weekend welcomes the highly anticipated post-apocalyptic film The Maze Runner, based on the novel by James Dashner. Aside from stating the obvious (it’s filled with buff guys and testosterone galore), it’s time you get to know these leading men a little bit better.

Of course, lead Dylan O’Brien (MTV’s Teen Wolf) is fantastic eye candy, proving he’s one of the main reasons girls everywhere will swarm to the theaters this weekend. But don’t overlook his supporting castmates. After all, Will Poulter did watch Jennifer Aniston strip in We’re the Millers. Game of Thrones fans, you’ll recognize Thomas Sangster from his time as Jojen Reed (or even from his work as Sam in Love Actually). Sangster told VH1 he enjoyed playing Maze Runner‘s Newt so much, he doesn’t really miss Got. “I had a great time doing it, »
