Director: Tate Taylor; Screenwriters: Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth; Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, Dan Aykroyd, Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, Jill Scott; Running time: 139 mins; Certificate: 12A
Chadwick Boseman is absolutely electric as the centrepiece of Tate Taylor's James Brown biopic, a film that seems to tell you everything and nothing about the man responsible for funk hits 'I Feel Good', 'It's a Man's World' and countless others.
Get on Up unfolds like a whistle-stop tour of the Godfather of Soul's Wikipedia page, the life of a volatile musician playing on shuffle. Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth's script jumps through the years seemingly at random, showing us fragments of its subject – from being raised in the woods of South Carolina by an abusive father to joining The Famous Flames, solo superstardom and beyond.
The storytelling style is somewhat reminiscent of Bs Johnson's "book in a box" The Unfortunates, »

Since opening Nov. 6 with the world premiere of J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, AFI Fest has hosted the world premieres of Ava DuVernay’s Selma, Rupert Wyatt’s The Gambler and Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, but it’s also hosted a variety of festival favorites, including Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, which closes the festival tonight. Miller, a two-time Oscar nominee, received the best director award at the Cannes Film Festival following the film’s premiere. This biographical film is based on the true story of brothers and wrestling gold medalists Mark (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and their relationship with John du Pont (Steve Carell), which ultimately results in Dave’s murder. The film opens in theaters tomorrow. Twelve of the past 14 films to close AFI Fest have received Oscar nominations, two for best picture. Closing-night films at AFI Fest »

Without leaving a dry eye in the house, “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me” premiered Tuesday at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood to an audience of friends, fans and family of the country music and television legend.
The documentary follows Campbell, who announced his diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and impending retirement from performing in 2011, his wife, Kim, and his children, many of whom play in his band, as they embark on a farewell tour. The film is both an exploration of the progressive effects of the disease on the affected and their family as well as a showcase of Campbell’s seemingly undefeatable talent and genial personality, and director James Keach, who produced Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line,” said he was most pleased with the tremendous amount of humor audiences find in the film.

Joaquin Phoenix knows a thing about cult followings - and not just the Hollywood fandom kind. In the December issue of Playboy, which hits newsstands Friday, the actor opens up about his family's involvement in the Children of God religious group during the '70s - a topic, he says, that still has the public intrigued. "When people bring up Children of God, there's always something vaguely accusatory about it," Phoenix, 40, says. "It's guilt by association. I think my parents thought they'd found a community that shared their ideals. Cults rarely advertise themselves as such … But I think the moment »

With Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B making its debut this Saturday, we’re most struck by the resemblance between the film’s star Alexandra Shipp and the late R&B singer. The young actress has Aaliyah‘s style down, especially when she serves the singer’s tomboy-ish, hip-hop swagger. And then at other times, we’re reminded that this is a Lifetime film and there’s really no replicating Aaliyah. Overall Shipp does a better job of bringing the singer’s story to life on the small screen than other performers who came before her. Amanda Fuller was too distracted by a poor choice of wigs in The Brittany Murphy Story to accurately portray the troubled actress. When it came to Liz & Dick, there was no getting past that Lindsay Lohan was somehow just playing an older version of herself. And then there was Jewel as »

After winning the 2005 Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in “Walk the Line," Reese Witherspoon unfortunately caught the Oscar curse, also known as the Cuba Gooding Jr. syndrome, which pulls certain stars into obscurity instead of further propelling their careers. During the years following her big win, Witherspoon starred in a series of fluffy comedies that were box-office duds and gradually became persona non grata for leading major studio releases. Recently, she’s been trying her hand at a female version of The McConnaissance as she takes on more daring and challenging roles in indies. The tactic seems to be working. After receiving praise for her supporting role as the profoundly damaged romantic obsession to Matthew McConaughey in "Mud," her performance as Cheryl Strayed in "Wild," based on Strayed’s autobiography about her 1100-mile hike across the Pacific Crest Trail, is getting rave reviews. Witherspoon spoke with. »

The American Film Institute’s AFI Fest opens tonight in Hollywood with the world premiere of J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year. The film stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain as a couple trying to run a business and live in New York City during 1981, which was statistically one of the city’s most violent years. This is Chandor’s first film to premiere in Los Angeles. Though the film is hoping to garner some Oscar nominations, only six of the past 14 films to open AFI Fest have gone on to receive Oscar nominations and none have been for best picture.
Of the six films to garner Oscar nominations, the only film to win an award was 2005’s Walk the Line, which resulted in Reese Witherspoon taking home the Oscar for best actress. The Johnny Cash biopic scored four other nominations, including film editing and best actor. »

Movie News - Benedict Cumberbatch has landed the lead role in the new film Doctor Strange. The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' actor is in final negotiations with Marvel for the lead role in the upcoming superhero movie, according to Deadline. He will star as Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange - a former neurosurgeon who serves as the sorcerer supreme and the primary protector of earth against magical and mystical threats - in the live-action film. The 38-year-old star is said to have been approached by the studio after talks with 'Walk The Line' actor Joaquin Phoenix came to an end. However, Jared Leto and Tom Hardy have also been mentioned in regards to the coveted role. John Spaihts is currently writing the script for the film - which is to be directed by Scott Derrickson - following a first draft penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. »
There’s a school of thought that says actors have to “earn” an Oscar nomination — voters are more likely to reward them if they’ve broken into the exclusive club with a previous nom. While such a theory didn’t apply to this year’s winner, Matthew McConaughey, it certainly doesn’t hurt for people to think a contender is “overdue.” But this year’s unbelievably tight actor race just might be made up of five gentlemen who have never been nominated before.
Right now, there are widely considered to be four likely nominees: Steve Carell (“Foxcatcher”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game”), Michael Keaton (“Birdman”) and Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”). None has ever been nominated for an Academy Award.

Johnny Cash and June Carter's son, John Carter Cash, was arrested in Deer Lake, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, on Monday after he allegedly stripped down to his underwear in the middle of an airport. According to the report, John was intoxicated and had missed his flight. The singer was taken into custody to sober up and was released on Tuesday morning without charges. John has yet to address the arrest drama publicly, but he did share a cryptic message on his Facebook page, writing, "I want to thank everyone in my life for the tremendous outpouring of love, support and direction over the past week. Truly, love to all no matter what." John is hardly the first Cash family member to have a brush with the law - Johnny Cash, who was famous for his outlaw image, was arrested at least seven times during the 1960s, although he managed »
