Elizabeth Olsen Gets Major Haircut Because The Year of the Bob Ain't Over Yet—Check It Out!

18 December 2014 9:59 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Just by a hair, there's one last bob in 2014! Elizabeth Olsen is the latest celeb to indulge a chin-length chop, swapping out her staple long locks for 2014's most in-demand haircut. Celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend trimmed the 25-year-old actresses' mane, posting a snapshot of the refreshed cut to Instagram, writing: "Chop chop." And a serious hair crop isn't the only transformation Olsen's hair undertook-- just note the dirty blond, honeyed hue coloring her formerly chestnut locks. And with soft waves and ample texture, we'd say Olsen's take on the bob is one of the best we've seen yet. The Godzilla actress joins the ranks of a seriously chic »

New trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

17 December 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox Searchlight has released a new trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the follow-up to 2012’s hit comedy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald »

For the action movie lovers:

Godzilla

Gozilla fans can rejoice with the mega monster taking on creatures in the middle of San Francisco. Sure there’s a human story to it, but Godzilla should be the focus. Nonetheless the fight scene is impressive and far better than the forgettable one starring Matthew Broderick. The extra features have a few 1950s government »

16 December 2014 2:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the weekend it was announced that Legendary Pictures’ King Kong prequel had undergone a change of name to Kong: Skull Island, as well as having its release date pushed back to 2017, and now it has been revealed that J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Whiplash) has signed on to the cast of the monster movie.

Simmons will join the previously announced Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World) in Skull Island, which is being directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) from a script by John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla).

'Kong: Skull Island' Gains Jk Simmons

15 December 2014 11:37 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Thanks to his wickedly brilliant performance in Damien Chazelle's Whiplash, J.K. Simmons is finally getting the kind of exposure that he deserves. The actor has been cast in Legendary's Kong: Skull Island, which will tell the origin story of the king of apes.

Previously titled Skull Island, the movie will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) and written by John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla).

There are no details on what role Simmons will play, but our guess is he'll be part of the team of explorers (led by Tom Hiddleston) who travels inside the "treacherous, primordial island." Based on the talent alone, Kong is shaping up to be a major event. Both Simmons and Hiddleston are incredibly talented (and likable!) actors. We've also got a great writing team onboard, and a director with a fresh take on an age-old figure.

J.K. Simmons On For Kong: Skull Island

15 December 2014 6:46 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’ve gotten used, in recent years, to the softer, more charming side of J.K. Simmons. Still, Whiplash, which arrives here early next year, promises to shatter that once more. So all we can say upon news of his casting in Kong: Skull Island is we fear for Tom Hiddleston. And the ape.There’s no word on exactly what he’ll be doing in the film, which just got that slightly altered name and a release date shift to 2017. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing the adventure film, working from the script that has seen input from Godzilla’s Max Borenstein and Flight/Need For Speed’s John Gatins.Hiddleston will be one of a party that's heading to explore the mysterious Skull Island, home to the world’s most famous giant primate, with adventures lurking on its mist-shrouded shores. Expect the movie sometime in March 2017.As for Simmons, he’s »

J.K. Simmons Joins Simian Prequel Kong: Skull Island

15 December 2014 2:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just last week, Legendary Pictures retitled their Kong prequel pic and pushed back its release by several months. While the reason for the shift in both date and title weren’t offered, it seems production is still steaming ahead. Courtesy of a Deadline report, we’ve learned that Whiplash‘s hard-hitting mentor, J.K. Simmons has signed on for a role in the renamed, Kong: Skull Island.

Simmons will be joining comic book veteran, Tom Hiddleston, for the trek to Skull Island – home to cinema’s iconic giant ape, King Kong. Set to establish an entirely separate timeline from the events of other Kong films, this rebooted take will follow a gang of explorers who decide to venture deep into the island. Apart from that simple outline, there’s no details on who precisely Simmons will be portraying.

J.K. Simmons to Join Cast of Kong: Skull Island

15 December 2014 12:36 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in September, Legendary revealed that Tom Hiddleston (demigod Loki in the Thor films and The Avengers) will play the lead role in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island, and now another name has been attached to the cast. J.K. Simmons (Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, Juno, and most recently Whiplash) is set to co-star in the film that will bring the king of the apes back to the big screen.

Deadline reports that J.K. Simmons is set to co-star alongside Tom Hiddleston in Kong: Skull Island, a Legendary film that Universal Pictures recently re-scheduled to come out in 3D and IMAX 3D on March 10th, 2017. Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) will direct off a screenplay by John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (2014’s Godzilla).

'Kong: Skull Island' Casts J.K. Simmons

15 December 2014 12:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fresh off his buzzworthy performance in the hit indie Whiplash, J.K. Simmons has signed on to join Tom Hiddleston in Warner Bros.' Kong: Skull Island. No details were given for either of the actor's characters, although we reported last week that the plot, "will fully immerse audiences in the mysterious and dangerous&#160home of the king of the apes&#160as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island." Legendary's story&#160honors the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but places it in an entirely new, distinct timeline.

It isn't clear at this time if Kong: Skull Island will be a period piece, or if it will be set in present day. We reported in October that screenwriter John Gatins (Need for Speed, Real Steel) has come aboard to rewrite the original script by Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Seventh Son). Jordan Vogt-Roberts was set to direct back in September, »

Skull Island Is Now Kong: Skull Island

14 December 2014 9:55 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Word that Legendary was working on King Kong tale Skull Island arrived to a slightly muted response when a teaser trailer arrived at this year’s Comic-Con, probably because everyone initially thought it was a first glimpse at Jurassic World. Legendary and its Universal partners are trying to make sure people know what it’s all about in future, announcing that the film is now to be titled Kong: Skull Island.With Tom Hiddleston leading a team of explorers to the titular island and likely to have a run in with its biggest, hairiest occupant, the film is currently in development with John Gatins rewriting a script first drafted by Godzilla’s Max Borenstein.The Kings Of Summer’s Jordan Vogt-Roberts is the man calling the shots for this one, and Universal has also decided to shift the release date back a little, announcing that the freshly-retitled film will now »

Oscars Songs & Scores. Plus: Chart Updates

13 December 2014 8:59 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Each year the list of eligible Original Songs that will vy for Oscar nominations holds numerous surprises. These surprises almost invariably fall under the question heading:

That movie had a song in it?"

Apart from song showcases that are an important part of the narrative - remember that sweet tense reunion between Hiccup's father and mother in How To Train your Dragon 2? - many songs are buried in their movies by way of incomplete airings or end credit positioning when people are exiting the theater  -- you have to be the first music in the end credits to be eligible at all. Come second and you're outta there as Madonna learned the hard way for her end credits "Masterpiece" in W.E. (that's the name of the song, not a qualitative judgement). The other annual head-scratcher question about this category is not the mean-spirited "Why does it exist?" but the »

79 Original Songs and 114 Original Scores in Contention for Oscar Race

13 December 2014 3:11 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled lists of the eligible contenders in the Oscar races for Best Original Song and Best Original Score.  In the former category I’d have to say “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie is an early favorite, and I would love to see Tegan & Sara and The Lonely Island perform on the Oscar stage.  Other standouts include two songs from Boyhood, both co-written by Ethan Hawke, and the beautiful “For the Dancing and the Dreaming” from How to Train Your Dragon 2.  On the Best Original Score side of things, it’s kind of an embarrassment of riches.  How to choose between John Powell’s Dragon 2 score, Alexandre Desplat’s incredible work on The Imitation Game, Hans Zimmer’s astounding Interstellar score, James Newton Howard's propulsive work on Nightcrawler, etc.? Check out the full lists of eligible contenders in »
