17 August 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Emile Hirsch pleaded guilty on Monday to misdemeanor assault following an altercation at the Sundance Film Festival.

Hirsch was accused of putting Paramount studio executive Daniele Bernfeld in a chokehold on Jan. 25 at Tao Nightclub in Park City.

The “Into the Wild” star avoided a maximum stint of five years in prison. Instead, he’ll spend 15 days in jail, pay a $4,750 fine and perform 50 hours of community service, the Associated Press reports. The charge will be dismissed once he completes the sentence.

Hirsch told the court there is “no excuse” for his behavior, which was “wrong” and “reckless.” He also apologized to Bernfeld, who said Hirsch deserved stricter punishment for his actions in a statement read in court on her behalf. Bernfeld also said she thought she was going to die that day.

According to court documents, an intoxicated Hirsch approached Bernfeld about 3:15 a.m. Jan. 25 and grabbed her. »

New Projects: ‘The Comedian’, Prince Charming, and Muppets

10 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Robert De Niro has been gearing up what’s been known as his “passion project” for some time, a film called The Comedian in which he would play an insult comic modeled off Don Rickles. De Niro has now secured a director for the film, Taylor Hackford (Ray, Parker). Deadline exclusively reported that Hackford came on board after director Mike Newell departed due to scheduling, and that casting for the film is now underway.

Roast comic Jeff Ross wrote all of De Niro’s stand-up material for the film, and the screenplay was penned by Art Linson, who previously wrote De Niro’s What Just Happened and has produced everything from Fight Club to The Untouchables to Into the Wild. It’ll be interesting to see De Niro take on the role, because it’s perhaps most closely similar to his underrated, almost cult performance as Rupert Pupkin in Martin Scorsese »

Love and Mercy, the new film from Lionsgate, tells the story of two separate eras of the life of Brian Wilson, of the Beach Boys.

Directed by Bill Pohland (a producer of 12 Years a Slave and Into the Wild), written by Oren Moverman (Rampart), and produced by Claire Rudnick Polstein (August: Osage County), Love »

Review: As destinations go, 'Aloha' makes 'Elizabethtown' look irresistible

28 May 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you were to show me "Aloha" with no credits on the film, my reaction would remain just as complicated as it is now, but I'd say, "There are a few moments here that are promising, and I feel like this filmmaker might put it together at some point. Not this film, probably not the next one, but at some point." It is, frankly, astonishing to me that "Aloha" is the eighth film in someone's directing career, not the first. When they released the trailer for "Aloha," I was flabbergasted by it. It looked like a beat-for-beat remake of "Elizabethtown," which seemed like very odd choice considering the response to that film. Now that I've seen it, the crazy part is that they had to go out of their way to cut the trailer like that, since "Aloha" is not structured the same way as "Elizabethtown." Basically, Sony decided that »

Aloha Review

28 May 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first indication that Aloha is a project by filmmaker and music aficionado Cameron Crowe comes during the opening logos, when we hear a record player’s needle drop. The next sign is boastful voice-over from the main character, played by Bradley Cooper, speaking of his expertise as a defense contractor as we glimpse the earth from above. Nearly 20 years ago, in Jerry Maguire, Tom Cruise’s title character also spoke of his career prowess as the camera fixated on our glimmering planet.

Regardless, the most obvious give-away of the film’s writer/director comes from the rapport of the two main characters. One is Brian Gilcrest (Cooper), a man who used to be a dreamer but has turned into a bottom line cynic. The other is a headstrong idealist, Private Allison Ng (pronounced “Ing,” played by Emma Stone), whose personal goal is to bring some sun into Brian’s life, »

Stunning destinations from film & TV to add to your bucket list

14 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Film and TV is guilty of instilling us with wanderlust, throwing up amazing locations from all over the world and leaving us wishing nothing more than to jump straight on a plane to distant climes.

Here are some stunning destinations from movies and shows (all ready to check out on Netflix now) that have us eyeing our suitcases with longing:

The Florida Keys - Bloodline

An amazing chain of tropical islands hanging from the tip of Florida, connected by a series of bridges running all the way to Key West and frequently offering amazing views of both sunrise and sunset.

It's the perfect temperate getaway, as long as you don't get entangled with the dysfunctional Rayburn family, that is.

New York City - Manhattan

From the opening peals of Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue', Woody Allen classic Manhattan is pure New York City from head to toe.

New Trailer Takes Us Into The Grizzly Maze

13 May 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you listen closely, you can almost hear the elevator pitch on this one. It’s like Jaws, right? But, it’s in the forest – with a giant bear, guys with guns, and a token ballsy blonde to keep the ladies happy. Sure, it sounds like Into The Grizzly Maze basically writes itself, but the most cursory of looks at the newly released trailer suggests that this might actually have a very healthy B-movie pulse to it. What else could account for the presence of the legendary Scott Glenn, and Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton?

Directed by David Hackl (Saw V), and written by Guy Moshe (Bunraku) and J.R. Reher (making his feature length debut),the story sees two brothers reconnect with each other during a two day hike through their Alaskan childhood stomping ground. Unfortunately, it seems that their bonding experience coincides with a local bear attack issue, »

Forget Twilight, isn't it about time we started taking Kristen Stewart seriously?

10 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Since her rapid ascent to fame as The Twilight Saga's leading lady, Kristen Stewart has had something of a rough time when it comes to her professional and public life. It's bad enough having the latter combed over in fine detail, but when your talent is called into question, that must sting all the more.

But here's the thing about Kristen Stewart. She isn't a bad actress in the slightest. In fact, right now she's on the kind of under-the-radar hot streak that suggests she's destined for real career longevity. Twilight, now receding into the cultural distance, was never the finest example of a franchise that fostered great acting work, and Stewart suffered as audiences naturally connected her with sullen on-screen alter-ego Bella Swan.

Over the last 18 months Stewart's big screen work has seen her take on a trio of diverse roles that have smartly distanced her from anything vampire-related. »
