Bonnie and Clyde captivated the public as they went on a bloody bank-robbing spree 80 years ago, and Lifetime, History and A&E Network hope the public's fascination continues as they premiere "Bonnie & Clyde" Sunday and Monday, Dec. 8 and 9.
After History's surprise huge hit with the "Hatfields & McCoys" miniseries, broadcasters have been looking for another chapter of American history that resonates the same way: familiar but not too familiar.
This four-hour miniseries, starring Emile Hirsch ("Into the Wild") and Holliday Grainger ("The Borgias"), was in the works before the History hit. It has a cinematic feel and takes a few risks, particularly with showing Clyde's sixth sense and Bonnie's hysteria and presenting the story in a leisurely fashion.
"It is a morality story and has some parallels to our modern era," Hirsch tells Zap2it. "They were almost the original reality TV stars. They were playing out their lives in the media, »
In 1934, two young adults -- Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker -- were ambushed and killed by law enforcement in North Louisiana, immortalized after a murderous two-year crime spree that had captivated the nation. The tale of the two elicited such a frenzied response not because of the crimes themselves, which were mostly petty or forgettable during a time that included such infamous figures as John Dillinger and Pretty Boy Floyd, but because of Bonnie. She wasn't a captive during Clyde's raids, she participated and occasionally led them. Pictures found of the two from a hideout showed a cigar-smoking, gun-toting female, linked up with a man she was involved with, but not married to. The tabloid nature of the duo's misdeeds still carries some resonance today, which the new miniseries Bonnie and Clyde focuses on. Hit the jump for more.

With his first child, a couple of indie films ("Prince Avalanche," "The Motel Life," "Twice Born"), a miniseries (A&E's "Bonnie and Clyde") and a meaty high-profile role on the horizon (John Belushi in the as-of-yet untitled biopic), 2013 is chalking up to be a pretty good year for Emile Hirsch. Over the course of his film career (his debut being in "The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys" in 2002), Hirsch has frequently varied his acting choices. Being led simply by the quality of the material rather than trying to configure a trajectory or formulate a brand, Hirsch has run the gamut of being a young actor in (and outside of) Hollywood: nominated for a MTV Music Award For Best Kiss (with Elisha Cuthbert in "The Girl Next Door"), portraying real-life characters to varying critical acclaim ("Lords of Dogtown," "Alpha Dog," "Into The Wild," "Milk"), taking on an iconic cartoon character in »

“No matter how many times I get up and tell this story,
or how many people read the book,
it’s nothing compared to how many people will watch this film.
So my job is done. Mission complete.”
I like war films – always have.

One thing that can be said about actor Emile Hirsch, whose career began at the age of 12, is that as he's grown older, he's been a lot more selective about the roles he plays. Despite appearing in a number of teen comedies, playing a big screen version of Speed Racer and giving a memorable turn in Sean Penn's Into the Wild , Hirsch certainly has been trying to transition into more adult roles while getting away from the double-edged sword of still looking younger than his actual age. Having premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, Twice Born pairs Hirsch with the gorgeous Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz, who in turn reunites with her Don't Move director, Sergio Castellitto, once again adapting a bestselling novel by his wife Margaret Mazzantini.

Can't a girl just get some alone time? Mia Wasikowska stars in Tracks, the true story of Robyn Davidson, a girl who sets out to walk 2,000 miles through the Australian desert because - get this - why not? Along the way, she encounters various creatures and people, including (but not limited to) snakes and a National Geographic photographer (Girls' Adam Driver). Think Into the Wild, but with Wasikowska instead of Emile Hirsch and the outback instead of the Alaskan wilderness. This trailer is gorgeous. The landscape is beautiful and perfectly complemented by M83's "Outro." Could there be a better song for such a haunting story? Wasikowska seems like the ideal young actress to pull off this role, and hey, how could you not want to see Driver in anything and everything? The movie doesn't yet have an official release date, but you can (and should) watch the trailer below the jump. »

Not everybody is ready to be a parent, but David Wozniak is about to step up to the challenge… 533 times. Delivery Man hit theaters this week. The film stars Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers, Into the Wild) who plays an underachieving delivery driver who discovers that due to an error at a fertility clinic bank he’s unwittingly fathered the equivalent of roughly half of a graduating senior class, and they want to meet him. Vaughn and his co-stars Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother, Avengers) and Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation, Thor: The Dark World) discussed their work on the movie along with their own experiences in parenthood at [ Read More ]

The Voice is not the easiest show to recap for a fella like myself, who’s as cozy with snark and bitchery as a Kardashian is with secretly texting her exact whereabouts to the paparazzi. So on what am I supposed to hang my hat now that Season 5 is down to eight vocalists with enough combined talent to fill up an entire major label roster?
Oh sure, I can always find humor in Carson Daly’s attempts to position himself as Coach No. 5 — how I wish I could’ve been in the Sprint Skybox and shouted “Objection! Leading the witness! »

There are many factors that grab a person’s interest in seeing a film – the actors, the director, the material that inspired the film, the film’s trailer, but with more and more popular artists and bands trying their had at composing, sometimes hearing new music from these artists can be just as big of a draw. Artists like Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, and Trent Reznor have taken to the sound stage to create music for films such as Tron: Legacy, Hanna, and The Social Network (with Reznor and Atticus Ross even winning an Oscar for their efforts), but what if these recognizable artists were considered a distraction rather than an enhancement to the films they are featured in? Out of the Furnace was rumored to have tapped Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam fame to create new music for the film – a solid choice considering the success Vedder had creating the music for Into the Wild.

It recently came to light that Emile Hirsch had been cast as John Belushi in a film about the star’s life (see here), and whilst talking to Rolling Stone the Killer Joe actor opened up a little about the project.
The actor admitted that he wasn’t all that familiar with Belushi’s work before the project but that he is doing a lot of research into his career.
I was familiar with him, but I’m getting more familiar. He was a little bit before my time, so there’s an educational process in there. It’s exciting to present this guy to a generation of comedy fans who may not be too knowledgeable about his work. We’re trying to do him justice.
He talked about the fact that a lot of people are excited about the biopic and explained that it was director Steve Conrad’s »

Love and loyalty often carry the day. But love and loyalty are not carrying the day now Alan and Gabe Polsky’s debut film is a look at the bad side of being the “Y” generation.

Since being selected by Sean Penn to play wanderlust Christopher McCandless in his 2007 film Into The Wild, Emile Hirsch has sustained a streak of provocative work that's the envy of young Hollywood. Though overlooked for his understated but strong turns in movies like Milk and Savages, his performances are so subtle and authentic that there's always room for his costar's shiner characters (like Matthew McConaughey's Joe Cooper in Killer Joe). The same could be said of his latest work, The Motel Life (out in limited release on November 8th), where he plays Frank Lee, »
As many of you already know, I adore Cameron Crowe. I connect with his films on every level. We Bought A Zoo didn't quite resonate as much with me though I think it deserves a second watch. I felt the same way about Elizabethtown until I gave it another viewing. The directors next currently known as "Untitled Hawaii Project" began production on September 26th with Eric Gautier (Into The Wild) serving as cinematographer. The story written by Crowe centers on "A celebrated »
