Time Machine: Paltrow Silvery Oscar Dress at 83rd Academy Awards

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes

Indie Trailer Sunday: Director Jake Paltrow's New Sci-Fi 'Young Ones'

"Let us say a prayer that this piece of land, small as it may be, can be more than a symbol." Today's trailer is for an indie sci-fi/post apocalyptic film that premiered at Sundance to rather dismal buzz. It's the second feature from Jake Paltrow, younger brother of Gwyneth Paltrow, whose debut was The Good Night from 2007. This one, titled the Young Ones, is another genre-mixer set in the future, but with the tone and style of a Dust Bowl western. Kodi Smit-McPhee stars as the nomad son of Michael Shannon, and Nicholas Hoult actually plays a villain, with Elle Fanning his girlfriend. These first trailers are early promos that may not stay online, but as a first glimpse I'm intrigued to see how this looks. If you're curious, take a look. Watch the first few promo trailers for Jake Paltrow's Young Ones below, found via The Playlist:

Sundance Film Review: ‘Young Ones’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Young Ones’
A hodgepodge of Western, sci-fi and Greek tragedy, “Young Ones” is certainly one of the more unique films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. But the sophomore effort from Jake Paltrow (“The Good Night”) gets so bogged down in its primal tale of murder and revenge that the most intriguing elements become little more than futuristic window dressing. Unfolding in three distinct chapters, each featuring a different protagonist, the visually rich and dramatically spare pic plays a bit like a cinematic graphic novel. A cult following could be in the offing, but commercial prospects otherwise appear limited.

Set in an unspecified area of the United States (though shot in South Africa) where water has become a precious commodity, “Young Ones” has the vibe of a post-apocalyptic drama but can’t technically be classified as such. The world is still functional; the film simply focuses on a group of characters

Sundance: Steven Spielberg Here To See Jake Paltrow’s ‘Young Ones’ Debut

Sundance: Steven Spielberg Here To See Jake Paltrow’s ‘Young Ones’ Debut
Isn’t this the week that indie filmmakers take the stage in Park City? Hours after Christopher Nolan came to accept Slamdance’s Founder’s Award, I’m told Steven Spielberg just sat down at the Eccles Theater for the premiere of Young Ones, the latest film written and directed by Jake Paltrow. I’m told this is Spielberg’s second trip to Sundance, and the first one was to see The Good Night, also directed by Paltrow. What gives? Spielberg is Paltrow’s godfather and obviously a big fan of the helmer’s work. Young Ones, an acquisition title, is described as a futuristic Western-style tale that takes place in a world with a scarcity of water. A 14-year-old boy is confronted with his primal instincts when he finds out his friendly brother-in-law murdered his father. The film stars Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Sundance 2014: Most Anticipated in the Premieres Section

The Sundance Premieres section is “A showcase of world premieres of some of the most highly anticipated dramatic films of the coming year.”

Michael Shannon in Jake Paltrow’s “Young Ones

Young Ones

Written and directed by Jake Paltrow

USA, 2014

It’s always a mix of delight, discomfort, and teeth-grinding tension when Michael Shannon (Bug, Take Shelter, The Iceman) takes center stage. His exacting performances often subtly build upon instability and transfix the audience as a countdown to imminent emotional combustion begins. This sci-fi drama by Jake Paltrow (The Good Night) is set to showcase Shannon and rely on his strong air of deeply held convictions to boldly deliver the film’s gritty premise of humanity’s struggle in a future deprived of water. The rest of the acting ensemble are coming of age as promising talents that may complement Shannon’s gravitas. Elle Fanning shined in Ginger & Rosa while

Amanda Abbington: Meet Martin Freeman's 'Sherlock' and real-life love interest

  • Pop2it
"Sherlock" Season 3 has a new player: Amanda Abbington joins the cast as Mary Morstan, John Watson's fiancee. But the role isn't Abbington's first connection to the show. Rather, she and Martin Freeman have been real-life romantic partners for years.

How much does the fictional Mary resemble the real actress? And how did she get the role?

There are some big differences between truth and fiction, of course. While Mary is new on the "Sherlock" scene, Abbington and Freeman have been in a committed relationship for over a decade. The two actors also have two children together and have worked on multiple acting projects over the years: "Men Only" (where they met), "The Debt," "The Robinsons" and "The Good Night."

Despite all that, the "Sherlock" wedding of John and Mary will be the couple's first -- the longtime partners have never tied the knot in real life.

Martin Freeman: from Slough to Smaug – then back to Sherlock

The actor is about to appear in the return of BBC1's Sherlock and Peter Jackson's blockbuster sequel The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

There was a scene in The Office in which Tim Canterbury, the benign sales rep played by Martin Freeman, compared his life to a roll of the dice.

"My situation now may only be a three. If I jack that in, go for something bigger and better, I could easily roll a six," he told the programme's faux documentary maker. "I could also roll a one. Ok? So I think … just leave the dice alone."

Freeman, who will star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in the eagerly awaited return on New Year's Day of BBC1's Sherlock, and as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's blockbuster sequel The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug next week, has just rolled a double six.

It has been an extraordinary rise for the 42-year-old actor,

Elle Fanning (Super 8), Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) and Michael Shannon (Take Shelter) have all signed up for Jake Paltrow’s long-awaited dystopian thriller Young Ones. The lesser-known sibling, Paltrow (The Good Night) will not only direct his sophomore effort, but is also writing the screenplay, which centers on a 14-year-old boy forced to use his wits to survive and ‘is set in a violent near-future where water has become the most precious—and fastest-dwindling—resource on the planet.’ Since the lead in a neo-realistic dystopian film is a 14-year-old, it can be assumed that Smit-McPhee is playing the main character.
