Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

The Imitation Game Blu-ray Review

4 March 2015 4:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Morten Tyldum

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Charles Dance, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech

Running Time: 114 minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: Making The Imitation Game, Alan Turing: Man & Enigma, Heroes of Bletchley

The Imitation Game is an outstanding introduction and exploration of the remarkable life of genius Alan Turing, his unique work, alongside a dedicated team at Bletchley Park, had a historic effect on the outcome of the Second World War. The story had been hidden for 29 years before it was revealed in 1974 and although many of us have known about the story specific story of Enigma, I feel that Turing’s remarkable and vital involvement hadn’t really been told to a wider audience until now.

Cumberbatch is a striking fit for the character that is both in the truest sense a genius and at a loss for his connection to ‘normal’ life, whatever that is, his »

Review: '50 Shades Of Grey' is glossy but hollow and comes up limp

11 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I never thought I'd say this about a bigscreen adaptation of "50 Shades Of Grey," but it's true: the damn thing's just not trashy enough. The urge is understandable. When Dana Brunetti and Mike De Luca bought the El James book, they knew full well what they were buying, and they knew that the first thing they had to do was approach this as a top-of-the-line A-list production across the board if they wanted anyone to take it seriously. The distance between this and about ten million movies that played on Cinemax at 2:00 in the morning is not that great, and if this is going to be the equivalent of the book as a movie, then it can't just be a modest hit. It needs to be a monster, a phenomenon. It needs to be something that people go see over and over, that people can't stop talking about. Hiring »

6 times the BAFTAs defied the Oscars: Brokeback Mountain, Ben Affleck

8 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Over the past decade, the BAFTAs have become an increasingly accurate barometer for the eventual Oscar winners, with the last six Best Picture winners in a row being pre-empted by an identical BAFTA winner.

But there have been several memorable – and telling – instances in which the two awards bodies have diverged, and often not for the obvious cultural reasons you expect.

It's easy enough to see, for example, why Four Weddings and a Funeral took the top prize at 1995's BAFTAs while Forrest Gump triumphed across the pond, and ditto The Full Monty over Titanic three years later. But the explanation isn't always so clear, and the discrepancy often highlights intriguing differences between Academy and BAFTA members' sensibilities.

Digital Spy looks back on six notable times BAFTA diverged from the Academy path, either for better or for worse.

1. Brokeback Mountain wins Best Film (2006)

Almost a decade on, this still stands as BAFTA's crowning achievement. »

Sundance Ignites 2016 Oscar Race with ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘Grandma’ and More

30 January 2015 3:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brooklyn,” a drama about an Irish immigrant’s journey to America, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday night without much advance buzz. But when the lights at the Eccles Theatre in Park City came up two hours later to a rapturous standing ovation, it was clear that Sundance had just screened one of the best films of the year. Within 24 hours, Fox Searchlight defeated its rivals (including the Weinstein Co. and Focus Features) in a heated bidding war and landed “Brooklyn” for $9 million. That deal, the biggest at this year’s festival, also kicked off the Oscars 2016 race.

It might seem ridiculously early to be handicapping an awards show that’s still 13 months away. But the snow-covered theaters in Park City can be the first stop on the long road to awards season. In 2014 Sundance launched the campaigns for best picture nominees “Whiplash” (which opened the festival) and “Boyhood, »

Fox Searchlight Continues Sundance Acquisitions Spree with Period Tearjerker 'Brooklyn'

28 January 2015 8:53 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Fox Searchlight came to Sundance with Jonah Hill / James Franco thriller "True Story" in hand, picked up director Noah Baumbach's latest collaboration with Greta Gerwig, "Mistress America," before the festival began, and partnered with producer Indian Paintbrush to snag "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" earlier this week. The distributor's acquisitions spree continues with the period melodrama "Brooklyn" -- to the tune of $9 million, according to Variety, the price tag fueled by a bidding war that included The Weinstein Company, Focus Features, and Roadside. Based on Colm Tóibín's 2009 novel, adapted by the ever-popular Nick Hornby and directed by John Crowley, the film stars Saoirse Ronan ("Atonement") as a young woman who emigrates from Ireland to the titular New York borough in 1952. As Entertainment Weekly notes, it's a homecoming of sorts for the 20-year-old Irish actress, who also appears in this year's Sundance »

Sundance 2015: Irish actress Saoirse Ronan goes 'home' with 'Brooklyn'

27 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The period drama Brooklyn, which premiered at Sundance Monday night to a standing ovation, takes place in 1952 and follows a young Irish woman’s coming of age; played by Saoirse Ronan, her heartstrings get pulled in several different directions at the same time. The period drama An Education, meanwhile, which debuted at the 2009 festival to critical hosannas, is set in 1961 and focuses on a bright young British woman (Carey Mulligan) longing to be accepted as an adult through her love affair with a beguiling older man. The parallels between the two movies are striking. Both An Education, based on a memoir by Lynn Barber, »

Thursday's Oscar nominations consisted almost exclusively of familiar faces from the film world. Before several of these actors broke out on the big screen, though, they found their way into the spotlight on television. Among these class acts is a comic actress–turned–serious dramatist who's actually a reality veteran, a sharp-tongued supporting actor whose first recurring gig was on an Nsfw HBO series and a threepeat nominee who learned his craft from asking other Oscar go-to guys for their advice - over and over again.

Working Title Co-Chief Eric Fellner Looks to Harness Oscar Buzz in International Markets

15 January 2015 10:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Working Title Films co-chair Eric Fellner, one of the producers of “The Theory of Everything,” is looking to capitalize on the buzz generated by the movie’s five Oscar nominations, including best picture, as it embarks on the next stage of its theatrical rollout in international markets.

Fellner told Variety on Thursday: “We planned our international rollout in the hope that we would get some kind of recognition somewhere along the line, but this is way better than we had hoped for, so now we will focus on all of the European, Latin American and Asian markets, and try and use the recognition that the film has been given to enhance the box office in all those territories.”

The Oscar nomination is Fellner’s fifth, following “Elizabeth,” “Atonement,” “Frost/Nixon” and “Les Miserables,” but he was taking nothing for granted today. “I have been around a while, so one never expects anything. »

Watch: Golden Globe Winner Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones Reveal Terrors Filming 'Theory of Everything'

12 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are Oscar perennials ("Les Mis," "Atonement," "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy," "Anna Karenina"). And they and their distributor, Universal's Focus Features, know they have a robust awards contender in "The Theory of Everything," the moving $18-million love story of Stephen and Jane Hawking, played by Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. Both are in the Oscar race, along with the film's director James Marsh (Oscar-winning doc "Man on Wire," "Shadow Dancer") and New Zealand-born screenwriter and Hawking obsessive Anthony McCarten, who nurtured for many years his adaptation of Jane Hawking's memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen Hawking."  I interviewed Redmayne and Jones in Toronto right after their movie's rousing debut (video below).

Young Cyclops, Storm, Jean Gray Casting Talk

9 January 2015 3:31 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Apocalypse" moving its action into the 1980s, one of the big draws will be getting to see younger versions of some other pre-established characters from the old trilogy.

Today, Latino Review has word on the front runners for three key roles. These actors are said to be actually testing, as opposed to the names mentioned this past Fall who were just rumored.

First up, they say Taron Egerton ("Kingsman: The Secret Service"), Jamie Blackley ("If I Stay"), and Tye Sheridan ("Mud") are in the mix to play young Cyclops. They add Alexandra Shipp ("Aaliyah: The Princess Of R&B") and Zendaya Coleman are being considered for a young Storm, and Sophie Turner ("Game of Thrones") and Saoirse Ronan ("Atonement") are up for a young Jean Grey.

Jeff Sneider from The Wrap weighed in on the report shortly after, saying Sheridan is the frontrunner to play Cyclops. »
