George Clooney on attending Comic Con during his honeymoon: 'It didn't go down well'

20 May 2015 2:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

George Clooney's decision to interrupt his honeymoon with a trip to New York Comic Con didn't go down very well with new wife Amal Alamuddin.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, the Tomorrowland star said that it wasn't easy to explain to his bride that he would be spending part of his holiday with "people dressed up like Captain Kirk".

"I got the call while on my honeymoon and was told it was really important that I fly in," Clooney said. "First I had to explain that to my wife, which didn't play well.

"And then, the whole idea of spending part of your honeymoon with people dressed up like Captain Kirk and Star Wars characters somehow wasn't easy to explain to my new bride. But, I showed up and it was actually fun."

Clooney, who is well known for pranking his famous co-stars, also told Norton about his »

Meryl Streep Wants To Rock You In The Ricki And The Flash Trailer

6 May 2015 5:28 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s not exactly a surprise to see Meryl Streep sing on film – after all, we’ve seen her warble in the likes of Into The Woods and Mamma Mia! and that ten-minute rap battle sequence in The Iron Lady was killer – but Ricki And The Flash allows her to channel her inner Stevie Nicks or Nancy Wilson for a rock ‘n’ roll story of a mother reconnecting with her family. Check out the first trailer. Jonathan Demme is behind the camera for this one, directing a Diablo Cody script about a rocker who essentially gave up everything for her chance at musical stardom. She’s used to being on tour, but when her long-suffering ex-husband Pete (Kevin Kline) calls to say their daughter Julie (Streep’s real-life spawn Mamie Gummer) has been jilted by her husband-to-be, she’s forced to confront the realities of the family she left behind. »

Six British Movies & TV Shows to Get You in the Mood for the General Election

18 April 2015 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kirsty Capes with six British movies and TV shows to get you in the mood for the General Election…

Despite being a lover of all things available on the big and small screens, Jeremy Paxman and Dimbleby don’t really do it for me as entertaining television. Many of us are sick to the back teeth of watching our glorious Pm candidates squirm under the fluorescent lights of the ITV television studios, or questions about the NHS. While it’s quite nice to laugh at the incompetence of our delightful parliamentary hopefuls and imagine moulding their play-dough-esque faces into different kinds of rotting fruit (just me?), there’s plenty of other ways to get excited for #GE2015 without wanting to throttle yourself with your own hair. Take a browse, for example, through a catalogue of fantastic television and film – where no one fluffs their lines and nearly everyone is better looking than David Cameron. »

Suffragette Teaser Trailer Marches Online

15 April 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The election cycle here in Blighty is in full swing, so it seems the right time to look back at a much more vital and impassioned part of political history, the Suffragette movement. A teaser trailer for Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette is now online. Boasting quite the cast – Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, Helen Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Whishaw among them – Suffragette follows the struggles of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep) and the campaigners around her, who lead an early feminist movement to get equality in voting at a time when women were considered ill-mannered to vote. While their cause was just, it was also not an easy thing to try to turn the giant iceberg that was British politics at the time. The personal cost was great, but the results speak for themselves. It’s just a quick look at this point, but with that cast, »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts About Margaret Thatcher

7 April 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Iron Lady”, “Maggie”, “Attilla the Hen”, and “Thatcher, the Milk Snatcher” – these are just some of the nicknames given to Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first and to date only female Prime Minister.

Arguably the most-controversial Prime Minister ever, Thatcher served from May 4, 1979, until November 28, 1990, leading her Conservative government through an extremely volatile period of British political, social and economic history.

An advocate of political and economic deregulation, flexible labour markets, the reduction of the power of trade unions and the privatisation of state-owned companies, she created many supporters of her policies that came to be known as “Thatcherism”. However, Thatcher’s decision to take on the trade unions and help bring about the collapse of traditional heavy industry and working-class professions in some of the most-deprived areas of the United Kingdom also led to her being hated by many.

Yet, despite the fact Thatcher divides opinion like no other political figure, »

Writers, directors gain share of BFI ‘Locked Box’ recoupment

27 March 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

‘Locked Box’ scheme has previously been tapped into by UK producers.

UK writers, directors and producers are now to share an equal third of the BFI’s ‘Locked Box’ recoupment.

Directors UK, Pact and The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain have struck a deal to ensure that directors and writers of feature films supported with Lottery funding through the BFI Film Fund will share with producers in the BFI’s ‘Locked Box’, a pool of recouped income up to 37%, which is held by the BFI and then can be used for developing and producing future films.

The recouped income that is held in the Locked Box will be split with directors, writers and producers each guaranteed a minimum share of 12.5%. 

While producers have been tapping into the pool since 2012, the UK writers and directors trade bodies had yet to strike a deal with Pact.

To date fifteen productions have drawn down money from the ‘Locked Box’, including »

Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

New Projects: Benghazi, Jesse Owens, and ‘Hail, Caesar!’

19 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The terrorist attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi so consumed the media and Washington that it’s bound to make good fiction. There’s potential for an on-the-ground action thriller, Zero Dark Thirty style, there’s potential for a thorny, political drama surrounding the ensuing scandal, and one can even look at the conspiracy theorist angle. And with that, Hollywood is racing to produce not one, not two, but three competing movies all about Benghazi.

Deadline reported Tuesday about one currently with a script in hand, Zero Footprint. Written by the team behind Immortals, Zero Footprint views the deaths of the consulate members and CIA operatives killed through the eyes of an ex-Special Forces operator.

“This about why it happened and the siege of the embassy is the last part of the third act. This is about everything that led up to that attack,” said Alcon Entertainment’s co-ceo Andrew Kosove via Deadline. »

The cast of The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 fantasy Snow White and the Huntsman, already has a solid cast. Chris Hemsworth is reprising his title role, with Charlize Theron back as Ravenna and newcomers Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain coming aboard.

Now some more dwarves are entering the mix as THR reports The Trip star Rob Brydon, Quartet actress Sheridan Smith and The Iron Lady supporting star Alexandra Roach have all taken roles as the gruff ensemble of dwarves this time. Yeah, there's some female dwarves!
