The Guatemalan-born, Julliard trained actor and singer-songwriter Oscar Isaac ("Drive," "Sucker Punch") has been acting professionally for over a decade but chances are strong that only true film buffs know who the guy is. That's all about to change over the next few weeks as Joel and Ethan Coen's latest, "Inside Llewyn Davis," unspools nationwide months after winning the Grand Prix award at the Cannes Film Festival. In the drama, Isaac plays the titular aspiring folk artist as he navigates the 1960s music scene in New York's Greenwich Village with a friend's cat in tow. Read More: The Coen Brothers and T-Bone Burnett on Reuniting for 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Soundtrack and Whether It Can Match Success of 'O Brother' Indiewire called up Isaac to talk about his breakthrough year, working with the Coens, and what's changed since Cannes. "Inside Llewyn Davis" opens in New York and Los Angeles Dec. »

Who is Oscar Isaac? He stars as a fictitious '60s folk singer in the new Coen Brothers' film "Inside Llewyn Davis," and although he's made plenty of films you've probably seen, he's seemingly come out of nowhere, so much so that a reporter at Cannes (where the film won the Grand Prix award) asked the actor, "Where have you come from?"
The 33-year-old was born in Guatemala, raised in Miami, and educated at Juilliard. He's been acting for more than 10 years, just in roles that haven't gotten him a lot of attention -- until now.
Even if you remember him from "Drive" or "Robin Hood," you've likely never heard him sing before, but he's actually been singing for years. Before breaking out as an actor, he sang and played lead guitar in the band The Blinking Underdogs.
Since you'll likely be seeing a lot more of Isaac, here's a »

For the past ten years or so, actor Oscar Issac has been on the edge of breaking out with memorable roles in Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch and Nicolas Refn's Drive as well as a brief appearance in The Bourne Legacy , making him one of those reliable go-to actors that can really bring a lot to a role. That may be why Joel and Ethan Coen chose him to play the title role in their latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis , a look at the life of a '60s folk singer whose career is not going the way he hoped following the death of his musical partner. Over the course of the movie, we watch as Isaac's Llewyn travels from the West Village to the Upper West Side, learns he got his friend's wife pregnant in a single night's indiscretion and that a former girlfriend had kept his baby, all while. »
‘Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “What Really Makes Katniss Stand Out? Peeta, Her Movie Girlfriend” — Linda Holmes at NPR digs into The Hunger Games‘ role reversal. “12 Years a Slave Producer Arnon Milchan Confirms Israeli Spy Past” — He also produced Fight Club, but there’s a Confessions of a Dangerous Minds joke in here somewhere. “Instant film recommendations for every sort of Thanksgiving” — The Dissolve forgot the Movies For People Who Chug All the Maker’s Mark-infused Egg Nog By 10am category, but otherwise it’s a solid list. “Jena Malone on her Catching Fire Audition, Stripping in an Elevator, and Her Defense of Sucker Punch” — An interesting interview at Vulture, worth it for the thoughts on a film’s shelf-life alone. »

Ever since starring as an angry little girl in Stepmom, Jena Malone has played ... angry young women. The latest is Johanna Mason, the ax-swinging tribute from District 7, in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Vulture spoke to the actress, who swears she's upbeat in real life, about auditioning for the role (she was "frothing at the mouth"), stripping down in an elevator, and her less beloved action movie, Sucker Punch.Congrats on your huge opening weekend. Did [producer] Nina Jacobson or [director] Francis Lawrence start an e-mail chain to the cast congratulating you guys?No, they sent a really beautiful vintage bottle of Champagne, which I think is far better than an email chain any day. [Laughs.] Yes, I’d say so. Francis has said that a lot of the actresses who auditioned for Johanna just came in and played her as a bitchy girl, but that you came in and seemed »

‘Catching Fire’ weekend box office: Record breaker with qualifiers — though a huge success all the same (photo: Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) For the weekend of November 22-24, 2013, Lionsgate overestimated the domestic box office take of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by nearly 2%. Doesn’t sound like much? What about $3 million? That figure can make a hell of a difference when we’re talking box office records. In fact, it can be the difference between a movie breaking and not breaking a box office record. All day Sunday heralded as the biggest 2D opening ever in the United States and Canada, the Francis Lawrence-directed Catching Fire actually opened below two movies: Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises (2012) and The Dark Knight (2008). And when inflation is taken into account, as it always should, the The Hunger Games sequel falls behind a couple of other titles as well. »

‘Catching Fire’ weekend box office: ‘The Hunger Games’ sequel poised for biggest domestic November debut ever? (photo: Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) On Friday, November 22, 2013, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (slightly) surpassed the higher end of early North American box office predictions, pulling in an estimated $70.5 million (including $25.25 million from Thursday evening shows) from 4,163 sites as per Box Office Mojo. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson, the Francis Lawrence-directed The Hunger Games sequel seems poised to shatter the current November opening-weekend record held by The Twilight Saga: New Moon. But then again, comparisons between the two movies may not be exactly fair; more on that below. Last week, some box office pundits (and, reportedly, Lionsgate Pictures as well) were expecting Catching Fire to open somewhere near Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man 3‘s $174.14 million »

Sony may be in the process of purchasing rights to Crash Bandicoot back from Activision.
Ever since PlayStation All-Star was announced, fans have been begging to put Crash Bandicoot in it. Crash was literally the mascot of PlayStation a few generations ago, but Sony didn't really hang on to licenses at the time. Naughty Dog made the game, started to grow because of the franchise, and then Universal/Activision took over and Crash fell off the map.
While Spyro somehow managed to live on through Skylanders, fans figured it'd be easy for Sony to get some licensing to Crash Bandicoot. He hasn't been used for years, at least for anything worthwhile, and should be an easy grab. Yet talks fell through and Crash never appeared in the game or as Dlc. Fans were upset, until today.
According to rumors and some recent findings in advertisments, Sony may be in the process of bring Crash home. »

Nb: this article contains massive spoilers for Catching Fire, and a shadow of a spoiler for Mockingjay. It also assumes some familiarity with the Hunger Games universe and characters.
Jennifer Lawrence is the star of The Hunger Games. I mean, obviously: she’s playing the main character, and she’s widely acknowledged to be amazing, in Catching Fire as well as everything else she’s ever done. But while J-Law is indisputably fantastic, there are moments when even she gets overshadowed by Jena Malone’s portrayal of District 7 Victor Johanna Mason.
Okay, so Johanna isn’t in many scenes, and Catching Fire is still very much Katniss’s story. But for such a minor character, it’s striking how much she leaps off the screen. »
A group of new on-set images from Robbie Pickering's horror mash-up 'The Kitchen Sink' have been revealed by The Daily Mail. The new shots show the sexy star Vanessa Hudgens ('Sucker Punch') mooching around on set and taking some time out for a bit of lunch and a phonecall whilst donned up in her bloody dirty pink dress. The Jonah Hill ('This is the End') produced comedy horror which features zombies, vampires and aliens will roll into theatres early 2015. Hudgens stars alongside Denis Leary ('The Amazing Spider-Man'), Mackenzie Davis, Nicholas Braun, Chris Zylka, Josh Fadem, Ed Westwick ('Gossip Girl'), Joan Cusack, Keegan-Michael Key, Patton Oswalt, Bob Odenkirk ('Breaking Bad') and Ian Roberts.

With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire set to storm into theatres this Friday, the film has been making stops around the world to hold red carpet premieres. On Tuesday, it touched down in Toronto for its Canadian premiere and we were on hand to cover the event.
Taking place downtown at the Scotiabank Theatre, walking the red carpet were Jena Malone (Sucker Punch) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), who play Johanna Mason and Finnick Odair in the film. For those unfamiliar with their characters, both are participants in the 75th Hunger Games, also known as the Quarter Quell, and both are former victors, meaning that they know their way around the arena quite well. During the games, protagonists Peeta and Katniss join up with Finnick and Johanna in hopes of getting out alive.
Though our time with the two stars was quite limited, we did manage to »

With the release of RoboCop drawing closer, Columbia Picturs and MGM have debuted a third trailer for Brazilian director Jose Padilha's (Elite Squad) upcoming remake of the 1987 cult classic; focussing on Joel Kinnaman's (The Killing) transformation from Officer Alex Murphy to the part-man, part-machine, it's easily the best of the three trailers we've seen so far; check it out after the official synopsis....
"In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the »

Alex Murphy does some more concise killing in the new UK trailer for Jose Padilha's ('Elite Squad') upcoming 'RoboCop' reboot. No bad language and sadly not much bloodshed either in the new trailer or these brand new stills as expected due to it's disturbing PG-13 rating. However the remake still sports a certain level of badass-ism. Joel Kinnaman ('The Killing') takes the title role whilst he's backed up by the fantastic supporting cast that includes Gary Oldman ('The Dark Knight Rises'), Michael Keaton ('Beetlejuice'), Samuel L. Jackson ('The Avengers'), Jackie Earle Haley ('A Nightmare on Elm Street'), Jay Baruchel ('The End of the World'), Abbie Cornish ('Sucker Punch'), Michael Kenneth Williams ('Boardwalk Empire'), Jennifer Ehle ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Marianne Jean-Baptiste ('The Cell') and the sexy Aimee Garcia »

Director Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World) spins another campy tale for Machete Cortez in this action movie. This time around, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President (Charlie Sheen, Guilty Hearts) to stop a crazed terrorist (Mel Gibson, Lethal Weapon) who’s bent on starting a nuclear war. Machete’s ready to kick butt, all while he’s got a bounty on his head.
Rodriguez rounded up his usual cast plus plenty of newbies for the film, including Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious 6), Jessica Alba (The Killer Inside Me), Amber Heard (And Soon the Darkness), Sofia Vergara (TV’s Modern Family), Antonio Banderas (The Skin I Live »

After receiving its UK premiere last night, the hotly-anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set to open in just ten days time, and thanks to Hayley Donaghy, we've got an exclusive video interview with director Francis Lawrence, which you can check out below...
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever."
