With The Hobbit trilogy now concluded and Peter Jackson having theoretically said goodbye to Middle-earth forever, Monaghan's post got us thinking about the rest of the Fellowship. Below, we take a look at all nine members of the Fellowship and what they're up to today.
Elijah Wood (Frodo)
After Frodo said his goodbyes and departed for the Undying Lands (don't pretend you're not tearing up at the mere memory), Elijah Wood veered away from blockbuster lead roles in favour of an eclectic mix of indie movies comprising the great (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), the good (Everything Is Illuminated) and the ugly (Green Street).
His most memorable post-Frodo role has to be mute, cannibalistic serial killer Kevin in Frank Miller's Sin City, »
Press Release (via TV By the Numbers) -- New York, NY – May 14, 2015 – "AMC today announced its new eight-part drama series “Humans” will premiere Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 p.m. Et/Pt. Set in suburban London, “Humans” takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a Synth – a highly developed, artificially intelligent servant eerily similar to its living counterpart. Penned by British writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“Spooks,” Spooks: The Greater Good) and based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama “Real Humans,” the series explores the emotional impact that comes as the lines between humans and machines become increasingly blurred. This bold new series is produced in conjunction with the »

Almost exactly one year from now -- on May 6, 2016 -- a bunch of people you just saw in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" will return in "Captain America: Civil War," along with a few familiar faces from other places, and some total newbies who remain mysterious. For now.
Emily VanCamp, very soon to be a "Revenge" alumnus, is returning to "Captain America" as Agent 13, aka Kate/Sharon Carter. She was briefly in "Winter Soldier" as next door neighbor Kate, assigned to protect the hero. Not sure what she'll be up to in "Civil War," but Emily tweeted confirmation about the scoop:

'Munich' movie cover 'Munich' movie review: Steven Spielberg tackles political time-space continuum in wildly uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller Alternately intriguing and irritating, thought-provoking and banal, subtle and patronizing, the biggest surprise about Steven Spielberg's Munich is that it – however grudgingly – works. The film, which Spielberg himself has referred to as a "prayer for peace," follows five men contracted by the Israeli government to avenge the massacre of that country's athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Sizable chunks of this political thriller with a Message (capital "M") are simplistically written, clumsily acted, and handled with the director's notoriously heavy touch, but the old adage – blood begets blood – even if somewhat muddled, is too timely not to make an impact. Complex 'Munich' movie plot Based on George Jonas' 1984 book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, whose veracity has been questioned in some quarters, Munich begins as »

At the forefront of his mind was the brothers-in-arms-type union between the two main characters in the film. "It's not a 'Walt Disney' brotherhood," explained Oelhoffen to Indiewire's Casey Cipriani. "For me, brotherhood is not a magic word." "Far From Men" stars Viggo Mortensen ("A History of Violence," "The Lord of the Rings") as an ex-soldier who is forced out of his reclusive lifestyle during the Algerian War in order to bring a man accused of murder to prison. The two men attempt to find common ground as they make their way across the war-torn countryside. The film will open for a limited release in theaters »

As diverse as his career has been, there is arguably one key feature that best defines a David Cronenberg film. There are, of course, exceptions (in some cases, great exceptions: A History of Violence ), but from Rabid (1977) to A Dangerous Method (2011), the relationship between science and the human body and mind has been a prevalent and powerfully expressive theme in much of the great Canadian filmmaker’s work. Of his films that deal with the repercussions of this relationship, and their unique, often disturbing manifestations, The Fly (1986) may be his finest achievement.
In this horror/sci-fi classic, Jeff Goldblum plays Seth Brundle, a brilliant if socially awkward and rather eccentric scientific mind. His newest invention, a teleportation device that can move inanimate objects from one pod to another, seems innocuous enough, in theory anyway. And at least as he tells it, he seems to have genuinely developed the machine with the best of intentions, »

Full cast + crew If you only know David Cronenberg from movies like The Fly, The Dead Zone, and A History of Violence, then you are not only missing the majority of his career, but you're missing out on one of the most consistently engaging and disturbing filmmakers alive who loves to flay the skin from the bones of humanity to see what's underneath. Maps to the Stars is his latest, and it's an engrossing look at the demented, interconnected lives of actors, their families, their fans and their managers.

Feeling nostalgic for the days of VHS? As one of the few people who still owns a Vcr, I can certainly understand. Sadly, 2005's "A History of Violence" was the last major Hollywood film to be released in the format...until now. Relive the good old days with anonymous Tumblr user stanvhs, who as an April Fool's joke created nine works of art imaging what some of the most popular recent films and TV shows would look like if released in those old bulky VHS boxes. Check out some of my favorite examples below, then take a gander at the rest here. Afterwards, have yourself a good cry over the slow, quiet death of brick-and-mortar Blockbuster stores. And after that, therapy. [h/t Bloody-Disgusting] »

Director David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises, A History of Violence) returns with a provocative satire about the Hollywood film industry and the demons of celebrity obsession in the Focus World release Maps To The Stars, now available on Digital HD and debuting on Blu-ray with Digital HD and DVD on April 14, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Academy Award winner Julianne Moore (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) stars with Mia Wasikowska (The Kids Are All Right), Olivia Williams (Hyde Park on Hudson), John Cusack (Being John Malkovich), and Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga) in this unforgettable darkly comic thriller written by Bruce Wagner (I’m Losing You). Hollywood actress Havana Segrand (Moore) is unraveling as her career flounders. Her self-help psychotherapist (Cusack) and his wife (Williams) are busy managing the career of their child-star son. But when a mysterious young woman named Agatha (Wasikowska) befriends a limo driver and aspiring actor (Pattinson) all their lives get together, »

There’s a fascinating, if kind of depressing, look at bygone film economics in this recently reposted 2005 conversation with David Cronenberg by the Film Society Of Lincoln Center talking about “A History Of Violence.” The filmmaker, whose latest film, “Maps To The Stars,” hits theaters and VOD this weekend, says that earlier film, distributed by Focus Features, cost $32 million to make and another $30 million to market. Remember those days of prestige-y, mid-sized studio movies? That era has mostly vanished, and pictures like “A History Of Violence” would likely have to settle for “Nightcrawler” money these days (it was made for $7 million). It’s an interesting hour-and-ten-minute conversation that touches upon myriad Cronenberg cinematic touchstones, like the critical backlash to “Crash” (the critic who was the most venomous to it is now dead), the way “Spider” seemed to die on the vine immediately (Martin Scorsese sent him a note a year after it was released. »

David Cronenberg's scabrous new nightmare "Maps to the Stars" is a pitch-black ghost story writhing in the filth of writer Bruce Wagner's Hollywood rock-bottom, a demimonde of deluded pill-swilling actresses, schizophrenic burn victims, incest families and drug-addicted child stars. In other words, home sweet home for the Canadian director of films like "Crash," "Dead Ringers," "Naked Lunch," "A History of Violence" and "Videodrome." His first film ever to be shot in the United States—at least in part—"Maps to the Stars" landed in Cronenberg's lap a decade ago when his friend Wagner gave it to him without any intention of a film being made. Finally, in 2015, it's here in all its messy, horrifying, grand guignol glory. Author of nine books between 1991 and 2014, Wagner grew up on the fringes of Hollywood, working at bookstores, as a limo driver for celebrities from Orson Welles to Larry Flynt and as an. »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Real talk: it's been quite a while since David Cronenberg made something truly satisfying. "Cosmopolis" has a few defenders, "A Dangerous Method" not so much, and while there's stuff to like in "Spider," "A History Of Violence" and "Eastern Promises," all felt compromised to some degree or other. Indeed, the truly unfiltered Cronenberg picture, one where bits fall off people or people try to have sex with orifices not traditionally used for any sexual act, seems like something of a distant memory at this point. But good news is here, because the Canadian director's latest, "Maps To The Stars," just premiered at Cannes, and while it's substantially different from the "Videodrome"s and "Crash"es of the world, and probably rather more disposable, it's certainly the director's most twisted, and as a consequence, most deliciously »

David Cronenberg. From “Stereo” to “The Fly” to “Crash” (no, not that one, the one from 1996), to “A Dangerous Method” and beyond, it’s hard to argue that the (sometimes) writer, (more often) director has had an eclectic career. And with his first credited short nearly fifty years ago, perhaps that isn't surprising. Vimeo user Shaun Higgins (d.b.a. Hello Wizard) has paid homage to the uniquely varied director via a new seven-minute tribute supercut. The short splices shots from 21 of Cronenberg’s films together, lending some semblance to what defines a Cronenberg picture. In chronological order, going all the way back to 1969 and up through the present, Higgins includes: “Stereo,” “Crimes of the Future,” “Shivers” (a.k.a. “They Came From Within”), “Rabid,” “Fast Company,” “The Brood,” “Scanners,” “Videodrome,” “The Dead Zone,” “The Fly,” “Dead Ringers,” “Naked Lunch,” “M Butterfly,” “Crash,” “eXistenZ,” “Spider,” “A History of Violence,” “Eastern Promises, »

Villordsutch reviews Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection – America…
In Mega-City One, the Judges are the law – acting as judge, jury, and executioner. But how do the citizens really feel about a system where they are powerless? America Jara and Bennett Beeny grow up as best friends, living a fairly trouble-free life in a dangerous city… bar the odd encounter with a Judge. Time draws them apart, and when they are brought back together, Beeny is a successful singer and America has become involved with a terrorist organisation – with the Judges in its sights! Written by John Wagner (A History of Violence) with art by Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd) this dark and complex tale is regularly cited as the greatest Judge Dredd story ever written!
This really is a no-brainer here! I’ll be fairly open – if you’ve wanted to start entering the universe of 2000Ad then this is your first step. »
