It's been over a decade since The Notebook hit theaters back in 2004, but Noah and Allie's heartwarming, heartwrenching love story still leaves us reeling. With Summer love and soul mates and a complicated love triangle, the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's book triggered all kinds of feelings - and an even bigger crush on Ryan Gosling, of course. Even now, a decade later, the movie's most quotable moments can make us tear up, so take a look back at 45 times The Notebook touched your heart. Because, as Noah said, it still isn't over! »
The actress is in early talks to join Cumberbatch in "Doctor Strange," as she revealed in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
"It's still super-early days, and I don't know where that's gonna go, if it's gonna go anywhere at all," she said, adding that she's not a "comic book snob."
Her quotes are part of an article about her somewhat-unconventional movie career. After major hits like "The Notebook" and "Mean Girls," McAdams was anointed by some as Hollywood's next Julia Roberts. Instead, she's balanced big studio movies like "Sherlock Holmes" with Woody Allen movies ("Midnight in Paris") and small indies ("About Time"). Now, she's currently starring in HBO's "True Detective."
If she does jump on board "Doctor Strange," due out in November 2016, the »

It looks like Marvel wants Rachel McAdams for “Doctor Strange.” Sources tell Variety that McAdams is the choice to land the female lead opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” although it’s currently unknown if an offer is in hand.
Heroic Hollywood first reported the news earlier this month, and McAdams confirmed to the L.A. Times that she was talking to the studio about the role. “It’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all,” she said.
Cumberbatch will play Stephen Vincent Strange, a former neurosurgeon who becomes the next Sorcerer Supreme and primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Marvel Comics vets Stan Lee and Steve Ditko co-created the character in 1963.

For once, a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks book appears to be populated by relatively realistic approximations of human beings dealing with relationship conflict in realistic ways. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Nicholas Sparks
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I think this might be the first movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel that I haven’t hated. Oh, sure, it’s set in an American South — specifically, North Carolina — where there are, impossibly, no black people (see also: Safe Haven), and where it only ever rains as an expression of manly sadness that cannot be articulated in any other way. It uses a motif similar to The Notebook’s, in which romantic handwritten documents of a relationship — in this case, love letters — allow for flashbacks to the 1940s, »

Yes, The Notebook turns us into an emotional mess, but it's totally worth it, because Noah Calhoun - aka Ryan Gosling - is just so beautiful. Let's be real: Gosling is hot enough on his own without adding in that cute accent. We're looking back on some of the most gorgeous Noah moments from the movie, and there are quite a few. From his handsome, charming first-date smirks to his sexy, rugged days later on, there are plenty of reasons to swoon over Noah. To celebrate the leading man's birthday, check out the hottest Ryan Gosling eye candy from The Notebook! »
Since when did it become cute to be suicidal? The latest in a long line of “Harold and Maude”-lin coming-of-agers to feature a misfit adorably determined to call it quits, “Coconut Hero” looks and sounds just like a dozen other emo teen-targeted dramedies, right down to its self-pitying protagonist (newcomer Alex Ozerov), a more-desirable-than-he-realizes “Perks of Being a Wallflower”-esque outcast who’s spared the inconvenience of offing himself when doctors discover a walnut-sized tumor in his brain. The fewer movies (of any sort) you’ve seen, the more likely you are to fall for such shtick, making this weepie ideal for young sensitive types. But even jaded auds have to admit the whole project starts to look impressive the instant one recognizes this ersatz Sundance-style indie was shot in Canada and written and directed by a pair of Germans.

Indeed, if these are McAdams’ most famous films, they emphasise her knack for versatility: in Mean Girls, she plays an unabashed villain, whilst The Notebook places her at the other end of the spectrum entirely as the leading role in a Nicholas Sparks’ romantic comedy.
Which is another way of saying that Rachel McAdams, still only 36-years-old, is an actress capable of much. She’s somebody who is not afraid to try new things, nor will she refuse a simple or mainstream part if she believes it to be good for her stock. McAdams can do serious and she can do comedy; she shines in a leading role, but she almost always makes a mark in secondary parts, too. She is also cool, »

Us Weekly says that the duo, who star together in season two of the HBO drama, have been spending lots of time together lately -- and that includes off-set, too. The magazine says that "multiple sources" confirm that the stars are dating, after being spotted out to dinner together last month.
"It hasn't been long," a source told Us Weekly of the pair's romance. "But it's serious." (Then again, a different source says, "I don't know if it's full-blown love yet, but they talk constantly." Get your stories straight, anonymous tabloid sources!)
According to the magazine, the actors -- who are both Canadian -- have been "friends for years," but "grew closer on set" while shooting the gritty drama. This isn't the »

We really hope this one is true! "True Detective" costars Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch are reportedly dating, according Us Weekly. The site says that Rachel and Taylor recently grabbed dinner together at Osteria Mozza in West Hollywood earlier this month -- and, while their romance is relatively new, it's moving pretty fast. "It hasn’t been long," an insider tells Us. "But it’s serious." The Canadian actors -- who recently finished filming the HBO hit drama together -- have been close friends for years, but apparently their relationship changed after working together on the crime thriller. "They grew closer on set," a second source close to the "Mean Girls" star adds. This isn't the fist time the 36-year-old has struck up a romantic relationship with a costar. After filming "The Notebook" with Ryan Gosling in 2004, the pair started dating but eventually split (and crushed the dreams of Noah »

Mystery solved. A month after Rachel McAdams and her True Detective costar Taylor Kitsch dined at West Hollywood’s Osteria Mozza on June 2, multiple sources confirm they are dating. “It hasn’t been long,” says an insider. “But it’s serious.” The Canadians, who recently wrapped the HBO drama’s second season, have been “friends for years,” adds a second McAdams source. “They grew closer on set.” McAdams, 36, once told Glamour that work isn’t a convenient place to find love. (Who can forget her Irl romance with The Notebook costar Ryan Gosling?!) “A [...] »
This might actually qualify as an audition for "Game of Thrones" Season 6. Heaven knows they drop the c-word like candy from a piñata -- and Arya could use a new partner in crime on that front. Either way, Ryan Reynolds has our attention, for unexpected reasons. And here's a lesson for you: If you tweet about a celebrity, without even tweeting to them directly, they may reply anyway.
One fan (or non-fan) just announced online that she didn't know the difference between Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds. She didn't even seem to be hating, just sort of letting us know they are interchangeable in her mind.
Totally understandable, even if that's not our personal celeb confusion crisis. (The Chrises. It's the Chrises for us.) But cue Ryan Reynolds with a Nsfw reply on how one can tell the difference between himself and "The Notebook" alum:
Different hair colors. Ryan Gosling has light Blond hair. »

There are variables in the chemistry of a Nicholas Sparks film, but the basic formula has seldom changed through films like The Notebook, Dear John and The Lucky One. Even the posters for these movies often look indistinguishable from one another, except for the two actors pictured. The Longest Ride is the tenth Sparks adaptation to hit the big screen and though it sticks to what you'll know if you've seen more than one of the others, it's not necessarily a formula that's in need of fixing.
Stop us if this sounds like we've done a find and replace on some other plot summary, but this time we follow Sophia, (Britt Robertson) who's about to start a prestigious internship at a gallery in New York, just as »
Remember when being a TV cop meant being a cool badass instead of being an emotionally frayed burlap sack of misery?
It’s not hard to imagine Officer Frank Poncherello shaking his head in shame at True Detective‘s men and women of California law enforcement, so woeful are their backstories, so apparent is their sadness. The Season 2 opener does little more than introduce these featured cops and tee up the crime that kicks off their shared narrative — and that’s compelling enough to make you want to come back next week — but oof, is it tough to witness so much unhappiness. »
From Mean Girls to The Notebook to her very long list of crazy-hot costars, Rachel McAdams has already had one awesome Hollywood career. Now that she's starring in the new season of True Detective, we're taking a look back at some of her most memorable and enviable moments, both on screen and off. In the past decade, Rachel has made out with Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds, and Channing Tatum, not to mention all her cool-girl movie roles and some sexy red carpet moments, too. Meanwhile, she's also won hearts by just being herself. Back in 2013, she shared some thoughtful words of wisdom with us: "Embrace life's messiness. That's where the joy can really be." In other words, she's talented, wise, and, yes, beautiful to boot. From movie scenes to real-life loves, take a look at moments that made you feel really, really, understandably jealous of Rachel McAdams. »

Don't expect any surprises from The Longest Ride, the 10th big screen adaptation out of the Nicholas Sparks stable. It's a profitable cottage industry for sure, but one that seemingly exists solely as a rite-of-passage for fast-rising 20-something Hollywood stars.
Everyone from Ryan Gosling to Rachel McAdams, Zac Efron and Channing Tatum have passed through a Sparks production on their way to bigger things. However, The Notebook aside, does any Sparks movie linger in the memory?
The Longest Ride is no exception. It'll be forgotten as soon as the credits roll, but its leads Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson show enough charisma here to rise above a risible script, cheesy dialogue and flat direction.

With fresh chatter that he’ll be back in the saddle for a third Shanghai film to follow Noon and Knights, there’s more solid information about another new Jackie Chan project. He’s taking the lead role in a new action thriller called The Foreigner.According to Variety, Nick Cassavetes is in talks to direct the film, which David Marconi has adapted from Stephen Leather’s 1992 novel The Chinaman. The story finds a restaurant owner in London’s Chinatown who has to track down the terrorists who killed his daughter. It’s a typical blending of action and emotion for Chan, though could be something different for Cassavetes, whose directing CV includes films more like The Notebook, The Other Woman and My Sister’s Keeper. It does, however, hark back to one of his earlier films, John Q.Whoever ends up in the director’s chair should have the cameras rolling this October. »
