Nearly two months ago we learned that Clint Eastwood's adaptation of American Sniper would sneak into this years awards race with a limited release on Christmas Day before it goes wide in the middle of January. Now the hype machine on the film is starting with the first photos from the film starring Bradley Cooper. Based on an autobiography by Navy Seal Chris Kyle, the book recalls the soldier's own time spent as deadliest American sniper ever, called "The Devil" by the enemies he hunted and "The Legend" by his Navy Seal brothers. Expect a trailer sometime soon too, but for now, check out the first photos below! Here's the first photos from Clint Eastwood's American Sniper from USA Today: American Sniper is directed by Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, Flags of Our Fathers) and written by Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia). The film is based on »

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »

He is in Dolphin Tale 2 this week but over the last 40 years we’ve known him as just about anyone from Batman’s Q to a convicted murderer, Nelson Mandela or even God. Five time Oscar nominee, one time winner in 2005 for Million Dollar Baby, Morgan Freeman is an amazing actor that has blessed […]

'No Good Deed' movie going unpunished to top weekend box office? (photo: Idris Elba in 'No Good Deed') Apologies for the bad wordplay above, but if Friday estimates are a reliable indicator, No Good Deed should indeed go unpunished to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, September 12-14, 2014. But why "unpunished"? Well, so far the Sam Miller-directed thriller starring four-time Emmy nominee Idris Elba (Luther) and Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has a downright putrid 10% score and 2.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes' top critics. Sony Pictures, whose subsidiary ScreenGems is distributing No Good Deed, reportedly opted to skip late Thursday screenings to ensure that the film's plot twist would be kept under wraps. More likely, however, it was the critics' derisive remarks that Sony wanted under wraps. For instance: "The final plot twist »

Who will win the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay? You can now make your predictions in our prediction center. -Break- Oscar mystery: Could Clint Eastwood's 'American Sniper' be this year's 'Million Dollar Baby'? Films adapted from books tend to have the advantage in the Adapted Screenplay category. Five of the last 10 winners have come from novels: "The Descendants," "No Country for Old Men," "Precious," "Sideways," and "Slumdog Millionaire." Another three were adapted from nonfiction books: "The Social Network," "12 Years a Slave," and "Argo," which was based partly on the memoir by CIA agent Tony Mendez. Movies based on novels in this year's race include "Gone Girl," adapted by Gillian Flynn from her own best-selling mystery; "Inherent Vice," Paul Thomas Anderson's take on Thomas Pynchon's book; and &qu...' »
Nobody is talking about "American Sniper," which sits low in our predictions with 100/1 odds. To be fair, nobody has seen it yet, but that's also true of other films with better odds like "Unbroken" and "Gone Girl." Even sight unseen, "Sniper" may be worth taking seriously as a contender. It opens on Christmas Day and is directed by Clint Eastwood, who pulled off a last-minute Oscar ambush 10 years ago when "Million Dollar Baby" took the top prize. Could "American Sniper" do the same? -Break- Who got Best Actor Oscars boost from Tiff: Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, ...? For a while, 2004 seemed like the year Martin Scorsese would finally get his overdue first Oscar, for the Howard Hughes biopic "The Aviator," and that early momentum led to wins for the film at the Golden Globes, BAFTA Awards, and PGA Awards. But "Million Dollar Baby," which was filmed just a...' »

In just a few days, the first barrage of the fall film festival season will be done. Toronto has a couple of days left, but basically everything has screened for press already, and a fair chunk of the corps are returning home, or heading to Fantastic Fest for karaoke and tacos (short of a "There Will Be Blood"-style surprise, don't expect too many awards contenders out of there). That means that the awards season has fallen into focus, with a number of the season's major contenders already out there. Compared to some years gone by, it feels like a relatively thin year in terms of true awards heavyweights. In the last ten years, only twice had we not seen the eventual Best Picture winner at one of the fall festivals by now—"Million Dollar Baby" in 2004, and "The Departed" in 2006. But this year, no obvious front-runner has really emerged. »

She came, she boxed, she conquered – Priyanka Chopra in and as Mary Kom has delivered her career’s finest performance with critics all praise for the film, not to mention, the protagonist Priyanka Chopra who essays the role of the five time world champion and Olympic medalist Mary Kom, in her career’s most challenging performance this far.
The biopic directed by Omung Kumar took the highest female film opening despite the ongoing Ganesh festivities, an approximate 8+crores on Day-1, a feat no other actress-lead film has managed to achieved this far. Touted one of the finest female performances of all time, Priyanka Chopra redefines the term Shero – carrying the weight of the pugilist’s journey on her toned arms, proving yet again that she truly is one of most versatile actresses of our time, with critics unanimously all praise for her performance. While the industry has seen some stellar performances by leading ladies, »

It was clear from chief Variety film critic Scott Foundas' brief introduction to the Hilary Swank tribute at the Telluride Film Festival that she could star in her own biopic, whose logline would be: "born in a trailer park in Nebraska, by the time she was 30, she had twice won the Oscar." Can she win another for Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman"? Famously, she and her mother drove to Los Angeles, and occasionally lived in their car while Hilary attended school and auditioned for roles. Clips were shown: her breakout role as transgender Brandon Teena in "Boys Don't Cry" (1999, nine years after her first TV credit, and five years after enacting the title role in "The Next Karate Kid"), an intense-yet-funny turn, wearing prominent braces, as a convenience-store clerk in 2003's "11:14"; reluctantly being taken on by boxing manager Clint Eastwood in 2004's "Million Dollar Baby"; encouraging a young black student in. »

"Acting isn't hard," Morgan Freeman told us when we interviewed him for his new movie "Dolphin Tale 2." But is that the truth or just humility? Frankly, it's hard not to believe the 77-year-old legend considering he so comfortably projects authority and confidence in his films. He's also racked up five Oscar nominations over an extraordinary career and collected one for "Million Dollar Baby," and that track record leads one to believe he's got acting down to a simple but sweet science. But does that mean he views his legendary roles with equal, detached regard? Definitely not, according to him. We talked with Freeman in Clearwater, Fl, about his favorite role (not Eddie "Scrap-Iron" Dupris in "Million Dollar Baby," for the record), the snappiest thing he ever got to wear on the big screen ("Armani"), and the perks of filming the "Dolphin Tale" series. "Dolphin Tale 2" opens in theaters September »

“I feel like I was sucker-punched, but it was a happy punch,” Robert Downey Jr. told me after the Toronto Film Festival’s opening-night movie The Judge. At the Montecito restaurant after-party, the star and his wife Susan Downey, who was one of the producers of the project, admitted they had not seen the film before in such a large venue as Roy Thomson Hall, where the October 10th Warner Bros release had its world premiere Thursday night.
Downey admitted to tearing up at least five times watching the film tonight. I sat near the cast and noticed that co-star Dax Shepard was a complete emotional mess the minute the lights came up and the audience stood to applaud. Susan Downey agreed with me that if audiences — particularly adult filmgoers who don’t necessarily rush to movies on the first weekend — show up to support the film it will mean »

Hilary Swank already has two best actress Oscars on her shelf, for Boys Don’t Cry (1999) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), which is something that only 12 other women have ever been able to claim. But, having only just turned 40, she is not resting on her laurels. Since her second win, in 2005, she has pursued a number of projects that were clearly intended to be awards bait, but that failed to resonate with voters: The Black Dahlia (2006), Freedom Writers(2007), Amelia (2009) and Conviction (2010).

Hilary Swank proved for the second time in her career that she can go up against one of the grand old masters of the screen and more than hold her own in The Homesman, a period piece from Roadside Attractions that debuted Aug. 31 in Telluride. Last time she did this, it was opposite Clint Eastwood in Million Dollar Baby, and the movie won both of them Oscars (Swank for lead actress, Eastwood for picture and director). This time it’s opposite Tommy Lee Jones, who — like Eastwood — directed while also co-starring. The stars had some surprising

While many weren't too familiar with Als (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease) before this summer, the hundreds of Ice Bucket Challenge videos helped spread awareness of this degenerative disease. Today, we have the first trailer for You're Not You, which stars Hilary Swank as Kate, a pianist who becomes stricken with Als.
Based on Michelle Wildgen's book, this drama follows Kate and her husband (Josh Duhamel) as they find the most unorthodox caretaker in young college student Bec (Emmy Rossum) as they both change each other's lives. Take a look at the first footage, along with two new photos from director George C. Wolfe's adaptation, co-starring Loretta Devine, Ali Larter, Jason Ritter and Marcia Gay Harden, arriving in theaters and VOD platforms October 10.
