1 July 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Watch 'Steve Jobs' Battle for Domination in Thrilling Biopic Trailer

1 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Musicians play their instruments – I play the orchestra." That key line, from the new trailer for upcoming biopic Steve Jobs, is delivered by Michael Fassbender, as the enigmatic Apple mogul defends his position against co-founder Steve Wozniak

"What do you do?" Wozniak (Seth Rogen) asks his business partner. "You're not an engineer. You're not a designer. You can't put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius. What do you do? »

Steve Jobs Trailer Unmasks A Diabolical Visionary

1 July 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The dark side of Steve Jobs is on full display in the first trailer for Universal’s upcoming biopic of the Apple CEO, which takes place backstage at a handful of the most important product launches of his career.

It’s undeniably exciting to see Steve Jobs finally making its way to theaters – the project was originally set up at Sony, with Scott Rudin producing and David Fincher directing, but that fell apart rather spectacularly and Sony unceremoniously dumped the movie, leaving Universal to swoop in. Now, thankfully, production has wrapped and the pic is well on its way to theaters.

Aaron Sorkin (The Newsroom) wrote the script and appears to have packed it with some absolutely stinging lines of dialogue, from the sounds of the new trailer. Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) is at the helm here, returning to prestige fare after 2013’s silly caper Trance, and he’s »

Watch: Michael Fassbender Plays ‘Steve Jobs’ In New Trailer For Oscar-Contender Co-Starring Kate Winslet & Seth Rogen

1 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For several years now, filmmaker Danny Boyle has found himself at the awards season table. The surprise hit “Slumdog Millionaire” swept the Oscars in 2008, and he was back at it with James Franco in 2010's “127 Hours.” Boyle took a break from serious drama in 2013 with the twisty heist/hypnotism caper “Trance.” That movie was originally set to star Michael Fassbender, but the actor dropped out. But it didn’t take long for him to reteam with Boyle, and he now leads the awards-bait drama with “Steve Jobs.” Read More: Watch: Danny Boyle & Darren Aronofsky Talk Directing, Moviemaking, & More In 20-Minute Video The project does, however, come with baggage.

Five Reasons We’re Looking Forward to ABC’s Quantico

1 July 2015 3:03 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Actress, singer, pageant queen and overall Bollywood megastar Priyanka Chopra is gearing up for her next venture: American primetime TV. This fall, Piggy Chops will be showing off her acting chops as the leading lady in ABC’s new drama, Quantico. So why are we so excited for this new series?

The Cast is Actually Diverse

Priyanka plays half Indian, half American FBI agent Alex Parrish. In an American television climate where South Asian representation is few and far between, we’re eager to see an actress of Indian descent on primetime television to prove that South Asians can play a variety of characters on screen – not just the exaggerated immigrant. Quantico will also star Aunjanue Ellis and Yasmin Al Masri in seemingly powerful roles.

We Love a Strong Female Lead

Judging from the official trailer, Priyanka’s character is one of the FBI’s top recruits who’s a »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

4 June 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal has released a new trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s mountain climbing thriller “Everest,” three months ahead of its September 18 release.

The trailer offers spectacular footage of the world’s highest mountain before showing climbers stuck in snow during brutal blizzard conditions.

Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, the movie recaps the 1996 multi-expedition assault on Everest that left eight climbers dead. Gyllenhaal plays Scott Fischer, with Jason Clarke as Rob Hall, Josh Brolin as Beck Weathers and John Hawkes as Doug Hansen.

Producers are Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson, as well as Nicky Kentish Barnes.

Jon Krakauer’s bestseller “Into Thin Air” chronicled the commercial expeditions that were caught in a blizzard on the mountain. “Everest” had been adapted for the screen by Mark Medoff (“Children of a Lesser God”) and Simon Beaufoy (“Slumdog Millionaire”).
