Easily one of the most awaited films of the year, Raanjhanaa captured our interests from the unconventional pairing of Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush, and Abhay Deol and the earthy tones from A.R.Rahman’s songs. Anand L Rai’s fourth feature after the sleeper hit, Tanu Weds Manu, looks to be an interesting and swooning love story especially through its gorgeous music. A.R.Rahman was so moved by the script of the film that he immediately agreed to sign up and do the background score for this love story, which can only mean good things for its prospects as an awaited summer movie. Raanjhanaa has been quite the lucky project for Rahman after the mixed reviews for his previous Hindi soundtracks for Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Ekk Deewana Tha. Yet, if detractors have pointed to a slump in Rahman’s output, then this soundtrack firmly proves his »

Aaron Sorkin’s HBO drama The Newsroom has unveiled its latest promo for the show’s upcoming sophomore season. Make sure to prepare a cool glass of water before you watch. This one may make you thirsty.
The amazing ensemble cast returns for the show’s second season. They are Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Slumdog Millionaire‘s Dev Patel, the glamorous Olivia Munn and Sam Waterston.
This unusual teaser for season two places Daniels in the desert as his character, Will, examines various workplace vignettes. The video makes the cast’s carious romantic entanglements seem frivolous and silly.
Jane Fonda can be seen on a billboard, but she isn’t one of the characters wandering in the arid desert. This season’s tagline is “Together they stand alone.” That sounds ominous.
Season 2 of The Newsroom promises to revolve around the 2012 election, Occupy Wall »

Based on a true story, Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” follows Jb Bernstein, a once-successful sports agent who now finds himself edged out by bigger, slicker competitors. He and his partner Aash (Aasif Mandvi) will have to close their business down for good if Jb doesn’t come up with something fast. Late one night, while watching cricket being played in India on TV, Jb comes up with an idea so radical it just might work. Why not go to there and find the next baseball pitching sensation?

Production has begun on Craig Gillespie's Million Dollar Arm. Based on a true story, Jon Hamm plays a washed-up sports agent who travels to India, and sets up a televised, national game show "Million Dollar Arm" to see if any cricket players might cut it in the major leagues. The press release provides the full synopsis, and while it sounds a little corny at points, such as "Ultimately, what began as a purely commercial venture becomes something more and leads Jb to find the one thing he was never looking for at all—a family," I have full faith in screenwriter Tom McCarthy. He's 3-for-3 with The Station Agent, The Visitor, and Win Win (although he also directed those movies). Also, Hamm is long overdue for the lead role in a feature film. Finally, the flick boasts a terrific supporting cast that includes Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi), Madhurt Mittal (Slumdog Millionaire), Bill Paxton, »

Rodham, an upcoming film about Hillary Clinton’s younger years, basically has “Oscar” written all over it. The movie’s screenplay won the number 4 spot on last year’s Black List of best unproduced scripts, an annual roundup that has cited future Best Picture winners like Slumdog Millionaire and The King’s Speech in the past. It’s a period biopic about a complicated political figure, which is a long way of saying “Academy catnip.” And it’s stuffed with meaty roles — future president Bill Clinton, future Massachusetts governor William Weld, Hillary herself — that are sure to attract a plethora of big-name stars. »

Could it be Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon or Amanda Seyfried? Those are the names that are rumoured to be in contention to play the former First Lady and Secretary of State. Rodham, being directed by James Ponsoldt, is still in the early stages of development but with casting reports already doing the rounds interest in this movie is high; and don’t expect it to die down anytime soon. The script, from first time screenwriter Young Il Kim featured on 2012′s ‘Black List’ which has previously listed Argo, The King’S Speech and Slumdog Millionaire as some of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood.
