While comic book fans already loved Natalie Portman in the Wachowskis' take on Alan Moore and David Lloyd's V For Vendetta and are looking forward to her playing Jane Foster in Kenneth Branagh's Thor , the critical and awards heat she's been getting for her role in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan has put the 17-year acting vet's name on everyone's lips. Two of the many movies she's been rumored to be in line for are Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's upcoming tentpole movies, Zack Snyder's Superman: The Man of Steel and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises . In an interview for this week's Oscar issue of Entertainment Weekly , Portman denied the rumors about her appearing in either (or both) films. When asked about Superman, she told them: "What is »
Natalie Portman is cooing about her new baby and marriage news, insisting she's "indescribably happy" to be pregnant and engaged.
Portman's publicist confirmed the double shocker on Monday and now the V For Vendetta star has issued a statement to the media.
She tells EW.com, "I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience."
The biggest news to come out of this holiday weekend (aside from "Snowmaggedon 2," of course) has to be the fact that Natalie Portman is not only engaged (like that isn't big enough news on its own) but also pregnant! Since Portman's a serious actress with a trio of exciting films -- "No Strings Attached," "Your Highness" and "Thor" -- to look forward to in 2011, we wouldn't expect a silly little thing like a baby growing in her belly to slow her down. In fact, we think she should take full advantage of her condition by starring in movies that incorporate her pregnancy.
She wouldn't be the first actress to tackle a role while eating for two. That extra glow in Reese Witherspoon's complexion in "Vanity Fair" wasn't just good lighting, Helena Bonham Carter managed to hide her pregnancy during "Sweeney Todd" beneath those period dresses, and a preggers Penelope Cruz »

An extremely disturbing video is hitting the airwaves showing a man named Clay Duke opening fire on a school board meeting in Florida earlier today. Duke, apparently upset over the firing of his wife, later fatally shot himself. Anderson Cooper reported on the incident on CNN, and showed video of Duke spray-painting a red "V" with a circle around it (think the movie V For Vendetta) before telling several people in the room to leave. »

John Cusack (High Fidelity) will star as Edgar Allan Poe in director James McTeigue’s The Raven. It has taken a while, but the director of V For Vendetta has finally found a star for his Edgar Allan Poe mystery thriller The Raven. After several months of rumours stating that Jeremy Renner and Ewan McGregor were attached to the project, Cusack wrote via his Twitter feed that. “he would be taking the lead role in the tale which tells a fictional account of the writer’s final five days”. Now we have the first photo of the actor dressed as the part, fans of John Cusak should be excited.
The narrative poem by American writer Edgar Allan Poe was first published in January 1845. It is often noted for its musicality, stylized language, »
Last month, we brought you some paparazzi spy shots of John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe on the Budapest, Hungary set of the upcoming, James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) directed thriller, The Raven. The film that’s based on Poe’s classic poem, and is set in the final five ‘mysterious’ days of the author’s life, when he gets wrapped up in a serial killer investigation.
Now we get our first official image from the film, featuring Cusack in full-on Edgar Allen Poe mode, with an actual Raven perched on his arm. Check it out below!

Here’s our first official look at John Cusack as American writer, cosmologist and cryptographer Edgar Allen Poe in James McTeigue’s (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin) revisionist supernatural detective thriller The Raven.
In this highly theatrical fictional version of his final days, Poe, the author of so many gruesome murder mysteries, becomes involved in his own macabre case and is in pursuit of a killer who mirrors many that he himself has written about.
Alice Eve plays Poe’s kidnapped fiancee, and Luke Evans is the detective who partners up with Poe. There’s lots of potential here… Poe is a rather mysterious figure of 19th century Gothic literature and in many ways he was Sherlock Holmes before Sherlock Holmes existed but then V For Vendetta had limitless promise also »

After seeing a few shots of John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe on the set of his upcoming "The Raven" thriller, today we have the first official photo, in addition to a new set photo of Cusack that the actor posted on Twitter. Check everything out below. The new movie, directed by James McTeigue (Ninja Assassin, V for Vendetta), is a fictional story about what would happen if a serial killer challenged poet Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack) to solve a series of killings inspired by his own stories. "It's sort of 'Se7en' meets a series of Poe stories. It's set in 1850s Baltimore, and it's about creating Poe's version of 1850s Baltimore, him moving through it. So it has a lot of the Poe stories interwoven into it," McTeigue previously stated, adding that Poe's real life will be used in the film as well. Photo: (click to »
Here's your first official look at John Cusack as famed gothic author Edgar Allan Poe in The Raven, directed by James McTeigue (V For Vendetta, Ninja Assassin). We've seen one image of the actor in costume, but this is obviously a finished, approved promo shot as opposed to the previous  paparazzi on-set snap. The film presents a fictionalized look at the writer's last days, when he embarks upon a search for a killer who may be copying events from Poe's novels. See a full version after the break.  I like the look of this quite a lot, and am very curious to see how the film plays. I thought Ninja Assassin was a borderline unwatchable film, though I liked quite a bit of V For Vendetta. That leaves James McTeigue at a respectable .500 average. (There's also his Ad and Second Unit Director career which includes a lot of work with the Wachowskis, »

Apparently the film is a fictional account of Poe’s mysterious last days–spent, as speculated by some, following a serial killer inspired by his horror stories, according to the blog.

John Cusack in The Raven The Huffington Post offers up the above image of John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in V for Vendetta helmer, James McTeigue's The Raven, and this time it's a more official look than the previous set shot in which Poe was sporting a nice pair of Nike Shox.
The Raven was penned by Ben Livingston (Bruce Almighty) and Hannah Shakespeare (Loverboy) and is described as a fictionalized account of the final five "mysterious" days of Edgar Allan Poe's life. The story will follow the famous writer as he joins the hunt for a serial killer whose murders are inspired by his stories. "It's like the poem, 'The Raven,' itself, crossed with Se7en. It should be pretty cool. The script is really good and everyone responds to it really well. I'm in the middle of casting," said McTeigue. »

The Huffington Post has this first look photo of John Cusack (2012) as Edgar Allen Poe in the upcoming thriller, The Raven, from director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta). I already like the gothic look about it. On accpeting the role, Cusack tweeted at the end August:
officiali- will play edgar allen poe in fall-a-film called the raven, send any poe- gold – my way as i begin this journey into the abyss.
The year is 1849 and a serial killer is terrorizing the streets of Baltimore. It soon becomes clear to Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack) that the murderer.s methods are taken straight from the pages of his own short stories. With bodies piling up and no leads to follow, the police approach Poe desperate for help. He refuses until his fiancé (Alice Eve) falls into the hands of the murderer. Joining forces with an ambitious young detective (Luke Evans), they »

Several months ago John Cusack announced that he would be playing Edgar Allan Poe in the upcoming murder mystery flick "The Raven," and we've been pretty intrigued by the project ever since. Now The Huffington Post has the first picture of Cusack in full Poe regalia, raven and all, and we've got to say we're officially impressed. We're not sure what's up with the goatee (we've only ever seen him in his mustachioed glory), but beyond that it's pretty much as spot-on Poe as you can get.
The film's plot is inspired by the last few, mysterious days of Poe's life. Poe died at the age of 40 after he was found wandering disoriented and injured around the streets of Baltimore. The cause of his death is still unknown, and explanations range from cholera to rabies to suicide. But "The Raven" follows the conspiracy that Poe was actually tracking down »

The Hollywood Reporter is, umm, reporting that Warner Brothers is working with those maddeningly inconsistent siblings the Wachowskis on a "modern, urban" update on the Robin Hood legend. On a related note, the world responded with a huge collective yawn.
Don’t get me wrong; the Wachowskis can make a good movie…they just haven't made one lately. Bound was a lot of fun — in 1996. And I think we can all agree that The Matrix was awesome — in 1999. V for Vendetta (2005) has its fans, though I'm not one of them. And that's about it. Everything else they've done has been a mess.
I suppose Warner Brothers is feeling sentimental due to the holidays. I can't think of any other reason the studio would agree to this project. Well, maybe it's because Will Smith is being bandied about as a possible candidate for leading man. I can see Warners wanting to »

If you’ve never seen Mad Men (one of the best shows on any channel), Amazon has an awesome reason to finally catch up. That’s because my favorite online retailer has seasons 1-3 on sale for 9.99 each on either DVD or Blu-ray! I’ve Never seen them priced this low.

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. The Disappearance Of Alice Creed The Disappearance of Alice Creed opens with two men prepping for what we can only assume—given the title of the film (despite any revelations about its meaning that may come later)—is a kidnapping. We assume correctly. They pull a girl into a van, tie her to a bed, strip her of all her clothes, snap photos of her, and put new clothes on her. All of this takes places without any dialogue, or any understanding of who these people are, how they know each other, or what their motivations are. The less you know about what happens from that point forward, the better. This is the sort of assured, smartly »
