Is Cate Blanchett going for the triple crown this year? The two-time Academy Award winner already delighted audiences as the wicked, but semi-sympathetic step mother in Kenneth Branaugh’s live action “Cinderella” in March. In May she earned critical acclaim for her work as the title character in Todd Haynes’ “Carol.” The Weinstein Company is going to release that highly anticipated awards player in November. But, Blanchett fans can rejoice because they’ll have one more shot to enjoy the incredible Aussie’s talents before the end of 2015 and it promises to tell the “Truth.” Sony Pictures Classics announced today that "Truth," James Vanderbilt’s directorial debut, will open in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 16. Based on a true story, the new drama chronicles the final days of legendary CBS News anchor Dan Rather (Robert Redford) as both he and the network deal with the ramifications of a »

Get your first look right here! Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a photo from the upcoming film Truth, which is the directorial debut of screenwriter James Vanderbilt (of The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, White House Down). The film stars Robert Redford as Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes, and presents a behind-the-scenes look inside CBS News during Rather's final days there. This photo only shows Blanchett in the make-up room with Redford as Rather, though you can barely see him only through a mirror. At least it's something, and puts this on the map for the awards season as we end the summer and head deeper into the fall. Blanchett is always one to watch. See below.

Transformer 5 is making announcements that the writing team has been selected. Now so far we know that Michael Bay has said he will not be involved with the directing but we’ve heard such announcements before. Mark Wahlberg has not said if he’ll return or not but it’s a sure bet he will. We know we will have a release date of 2017 and Jeff Pinkner and Akiva Goldsman have taken the helms as the writing team.
Steven DeKnight who was a showrunner on Daredevil announced this confirmed this and also that the franchise would be splitting for spinoffs and other projects as well. Jeff Pinkner has previously been attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and shows like Alias and Fringe. Akiva Goldsman has also worked on Fringe, The Losers, I am Legend, and Deep Blue Sea.
While the franchise hasn’t been that well received with the latest »

If you never saw the 2010 movie The Losers (which is very likely), you also probably never experienced Chris Evans (badly) singing Journey. Maybe that's why Chris Evans mostly downplays his theater upbringing now that he's Captain America. But leave it to his younger brother Scott to blow up his spot by posting a video of the two covering James Taylor over Memorial Day weekend. Or at least attempting to, because they inevitably get tripped up by each other's overwhelming charm. Can you blame them, though? »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).
Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

You wouldn’t think a show like “Supernatural” would have anything in common with “Grey’s Anatomy” or “Weeds”. After all, they’re wildly different genres on different networks. Each of these shows did do one thing the same. Every single one of them killed a character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
He’s the dad they love to kill, or, at least that’s what happened to both John Winchester and Judah Botwin. Even as a single guy with a thing for Scrabble, he didn’t fare so well, just ask Denny Duquette. Oh, wait. You can’t. They killed him, too. He became, for all intents and purposes, the best and most memorable Red Shirt on TV.
Foolishly, I thought maybe movies would make a difference. “Watchmen” and “Jonah Hex” both proved me wrong. He did stay alive through “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding”, “Taking Woodstock,” “The Losers,” “P.S. I Love You »
Warner Bros.' long-gestating Robotech live action adaptation is finally getting back on the right track, with the studio bringing in screenwriter Michael Gordon (300, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) to pen the screenplay. Hollywood Gang's Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton are set to produce, and are searching for a director, with Deadline reporting that Andres Muschietti (Mama, Shadow of the Colossus) is currently their top candidate.
The project has been in development for several years, with writers Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (Smallville) attached to write the script over six years ago. Sylvain White (The Losers) was once attached to direct, although the project never moved forward. Most recently, commercials director Nic Mathieu was hired to direct back in January 2013, but it never got off the ground.
The original Robotech animated TV series debuted in 1985, set in a future where humans have developed massive robots from a downed alien spacecraft on a South Pacific isle. »
Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.
Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.
Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.
