Hayden Christensen Opens Up About Leaving Hollywood After Star Wars: 'Success Felt Too Handed to Me'

31 December 2015 8:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Before Daisy Ridley and John Boyega became the fresh, young faces of Star Wars, Hayden Christensen was the most famous newcomer in the galaxy. Like his previously unknown successors, Christensen had never been on a major film set when George Lucas cast him as Anakin Skywalker in 2002 at just 19. The part brought with it so much attention that even Leonardo DiCaprio turned it down, saying he "just didn't feel ready to take that dive." "I guess I felt like I had this great thing in Star Wars that provided all these opportunities and gave me a career, but it all »

Hayden Christensen On Why He Stopped Acting

30 December 2015 5:22 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's a lot to complain about regarding George Lucas' "Star Wars" prequel trilogy, and the actor who found himself the most frequently in the firing line was Canadian thesp Hayden Christensen who portrayed Anakin Skywalker.

Jumping from obscurity to overnight household name following his casting, the young actor struggled with the character and dialogue of the 'Wars' prequels more so than the rest of the more experienced talent around him. Though having proven himself as an actor in the likes of "Life as a House," "The Virgin Suicides" and "Shattered Glass," the actor has revealed to Yahoo that he never got over the sudden thrust to fame that being in "Star Wars" brought him:

The 13 Most Underrated Movies of 2015

28 December 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Many of the best films of 2015 struggled to find audiences on the big screen. It’s not that Americans have stopped splurging at the movies: ticket sales are projected to hit a record $11 billion this year. However, audiences were more inclined to brave the multiplexes for major tentpole entertainment like “Stars Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Jurassic World” or “Avengers: Age of Ultron” over small dramas or comedies. The golden age of television might be influencing consumer habits, too. Theatergoers want their money’s worth — in the form of special effects, explosions and A-list stars — when they make a commitment to see a movie.

If the trend continues, the industry will need to brace itself for major changes in the years to come. Although Sundance 2015 was a strong year for quality pictures, most of the titles that debuted in Park City floundered at the box office. The prestige fall movie season, »

Matt Bomer Is Amazon's "Last Tycoon"

23 November 2015 12:32 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Matt Bomer ("Magic Mike Xxl," "American Horror Story: Hotel") has scored the lead role in TriStar Television and Amazon Studios' drama pilot "The Last Tycoon".

Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's final unfinished novel, the 1930s set story follows Hollywood's first wunderkind studio executive Monroe Stahr as he climbs to the height of power against his mentor and current head of the studio Pat Brady.

Stahr and Brady are based on Irving Thalberg and Louis B. Mayer respectively. Elia Kazan helmed a 1976 previous film adaptation of the work, that film starring Robert De Niro as Stahr.

"Captain Phillips" and "Shattered Glass" scribe Billy Ray will pen and direct the pilot, and will executive produce with Chris Keyser. It is expected to debut on the streaming service next year.

Secret In Their Eyes Review

22 November 2015 12:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A decade ago it would have been difficult to imagine Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman sharing top billing for a movie; however, in 2015, it’s hardly a surprise that the pair of iconic 90s stars – alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor – are stuck in a tepid remake of 2009’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winner El Secreto de sus Ojos (which translates to the English title Secret In Their Eyes).

For those unfamiliar with the original, it takes place in a world of departmental obstacles and corruptive cover-ups and follows a man named Ray (Ejiofor), who enlists the help of Claire (Kidman) to seek justice for their colleague Jess (Roberts) after her daughter’s dead body is melodramatically discovered in a dumpster.

Set amongst a team of counter-terrorism investigators, the plot alternately unfolds in 2002 – in the aftermath of the murder and paranoid wake of the 9/11 attacks – and in the present day, 2015 – as Ray asks Claire, »

[Review] Secret in Their Eyes

20 November 2015 11:42 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Foregoing the emotion at the core of Juan José Campanella’s Oscar-winning drama The Secret in Their Eyes, Billy Ray’s cold procedural remake (titled Secret in Their Eyes, evidently taking advice from Justin Timberlake’s Sean Parker) walks the walk, transplanting the story to a post-9/11 Los Angeles from 1970’s Argentina. The motivations are somewhat different this time around. Instead of writing a novel, Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) returns to his old stomping grounds to pay a visit to the one that got away: both his work crush Claire (Nicole Kidman) and a murder suspect whom he thinks he’s located.

The murder in question occurs adjacent to a mosque under surveillance by the joint counter terrorism task force. This partnership between the local FBI field office, in 2002, is led by a prosecutor with political ambition named Morales (Alfred Molina). The women raped and murdered is Carolyn Cobb (Zoe Graham »

The Eyes Have It: Ray’s Unnecessary Remakes Pales Next to Source

Thanks to mainstream America’s huffy dismissal of subtitles when it comes to cinema, we continue with another unnecessary remake of a foreign film, Secret in Their Eyes, an English language, celebrity studded face-lift of Argentinean Juan Jose Campanella’s 2009 title (which won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film that year). Screenwriter Billy Ray, after snagging his own Oscar nod in 2014 for penning Captain Philips, makes his third directorial effort here, following 2007’s Breach and 2003’s Shattered Glass. Reworking Campanella’s pulpy subtext into a post 9/11 Los Angeles neo noir, kudos to Ray for revisiting a particularly awkward moment within a provocative framework. But the result is a glossy, Hollywood reworking which never feels better than a subpar rehash of something much greater. To be fair, Campanella’s original has its own set of problems, with »

Thrills in short supply for ‘Secret in Their Eyes’

19 November 2015 3:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Secret in Their Eyes

Written and Directed by Billy Ray

Based on the film El Secreto de Sus Ojos by Juan Jose Campanella and Eduardo Sacheri

USA, 2015

Thrillers that contain no thrills aren’t exactly a rarity in Hollywood. It comes as no surprise, then, that Secret in Their Eyes fails to quicken a pulse. More surprising is its complete inability to establish tone, mood, or any sense of escalating tension. Everyone, including writer-director Billy Ray and leading man Chiwetel Ejiofor, does acceptable work, but there’s just no pop here. The bar was simply set too high with Campanella’s 2009 Oscar Winner, making this tepid remake feel both ill-advised and ill-conceived.

“Passion always wins,” is an ironic mantra for Secret in Their Eyes considering what a dispassionate film it truly is. Perhaps a more accurate theme would be, “The past determines the present.” Every character seems doomed to travel »

How High Will 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2' Fly?

19 November 2015 12:45 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The next 2015 blockbuster is upon us. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 marks the final installment in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novels and looks to become the first $100+ million opener since Minions back in July. Joining the pre-Thanksgiving fray is the Secret in Their Eyes remake and The Night Before starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anthony Mackie. Meanwhile, Spectre hopes to maintain some kind of a foothold as audience competition heats up. Ending any kind of made up suspense, yes, Mockingjay 2 will become 2015's fifth $100+ million opener. Part 1 opened with $121.8 million last year and Part 2 should be in that same vicinity this year. The plus-minus, however, is up for debate. The first Hunger Games opened with $152.5 million back in 2012 and Catching Fire topped that by six million a year-and-a-half later and still holds the November opening weekend record with $158 million. Mockingjay - Part 1 was unable to match that, »

Review: Billy Ray's 'Secret In Their Eyes' Starring Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, And Chiwetel Ejiofor

19 November 2015 7:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Politics and procedure get in the way of justice in “Secret In Their Eyes,” a clunky and increasingly absurd Americanized adaptation of the 2009 Argentinean import (itself based on a 2005 novel) that won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. Led by an all-star cast that still can’t make the material’s plot twists anything less than groan-worthy, this thriller from Billy Ray (writer of “The Hunger Games” and “Captain Phillips,” director of “Shattered Glass”) concerns the murder of a young teenage girl named Carolyn (Zoe Graham), who’s found one 2002 Los Angeles morning in a dumpster next to a mosque being watched by FBI agent Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) — officially part of the counter-terrorism team — and his partner Jess (Julia Roberts). When they arrive at the scene, they’re horrified to discover that the victim is Jess’ daughter. And worse still, that there are almost no clues (save for a »

‘Secret in Their Eyes’ Review: Chiwitel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts Don’t Quite Click in Inconsistent Thriller

19 November 2015 6:00 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When casting a play, film or TV show, directors will often do something called a “chemistry read,” because choosing the right actors for the role isn’t always as important as selecting performers who will click with each other. The idea of casting for chemistry should perhaps have played a larger part of Billy Ray‘s process in putting together “Secret of Their Eyes,” because he’s given us three very talented actors who seem to be working in three different movies. Writer-director Ray (“Shattered Glass”) assembles Chiwitel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts in a remake of the 2010 Argentine thriller that. »

Film Review: ‘Secret in Their Eyes’

19 November 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Long-buried truths are exhumed, and a foreign-language Oscar winner gets a clever but workmanlike Hollywood retooling, in “Secret in Their Eyes,” a time-shuffling tale of murder, corruption, paranoia and the many varieties of obses sion. Neatly swapping in post-9/11 counterterrorism for late-’70s Argentinean political upheaval, writer-director Billy Ray’s thriller-procedural plays like a serviceable feat of narrative surgery, though it does boast one masterstroke in the reworking of a key role, played here by Julia Roberts with a piercing restraint that silences any lingering doubt that she was born to be more than just America’s sweetheart. This second major release from Stx Entertainment (after the recent sleeper hit “The Gift”) should parlay its cast names, including Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor, into solid year-end counterprogramming.

A 2009 Spanish-Argentinean co-production directed by Juan Jose Campanella (credited as an exec producer on the remake), “The Secret in Their Eyes” made quite a splash internationally, »

Film Review: 'Closed Curtain'

7 September 2015 1:24 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★ Closed Curtain (2013), Jafar Panahi's symbolically charged follow-up to his critically acclaimed This Is Not a Film (2012), is about state repression, censorship, depression and the intersection between art and reality. Echoes of the former Soviet Union's 'Iron Curtain' are reflected in the title. The superb opening shot is filmed through the security grill of a window; an image reinforced by the bars of an iron fence directly in front of it. A car draws up. Two men approach the house. All that can be heard is the faint sound of birdsong. The first man, carrying a black bag, enters the house and we hear him set down his bag and keys. He accepts a suitcase and box of water from the second who then drives off.

As the camera's perspective moves to the interior, the man (co-director Kamboziya Partovi) closes the curtains of the main living space. He uses black fabric, »

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Be The Devil In The White City For Martin Scorsese

11 August 2015 2:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

It seems portraying despicable charmer Jordan Belfort in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street has given Leonardo Di Caprio a taste for bad, because he’ll be playing an outright psychopath in his next outing with director Martin Scorsese. The two are reuniting for an adaptation of Erik Larson’s nonfiction book The Devil in the White City for Paramount.

The book follows events at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago, where amid the lights and fanfare, a serial killer was at work. The murderer in question, Dr. Hh Holmes will be played by Di Caprio, with screenwriting duties falling to pedigreed scribe Billy Ray (The Hunger Games & Shattered Glass). Apparently there was a ton of other interest from competing studios like Universal and Fox for the books’ rights, but Paramount snapped them up as soon as Scorsese and Di Caprio showed interest.
