In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes). Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom.

Academy Award nominee Sergei Bodrov (Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan, Nomad: The Warrior) directs Seventh Son from a screenplay by Charles Leavitt (upcoming In the Heart of the Sea, upcoming Warcraft) and Steven Knight (The Hundred-Foot Journey, Closed Circuit) and a screen story by Matt Greenberg (Reign of Fire).

Most Adapted Screenplay Winners Are Adapted From Books

13 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Only one of this year’s adapted screenplay nominees isn’t adapted from a book, and that’s Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash, which is adapted from his short film of the same name that took home the jury prize for short film from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The other four adaptations all come from books, three non-fiction and one fiction.

American Sniper is based on Chris Kyle’s (portrayed in the film by Bradley Cooper) autobiography of the same name, which he wrote with Scott McEwan and Jim DeFelice.

The Imitation Game is adapted from Alan Turing: The Enigma, written by Andrew Hodges, a mathematician and author. Turing is played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the film.

Adapted from Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen Hawking by Jane Hawking, The Theory of Everything explores Stephen Hawking’s relationship with his ex-wife. The couple is played »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

13 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

Best Picture Winners Based On or Inspired By Real People and Events

27 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The Imitation Game features Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a mathematician and computer science pioneer who, along with his fellow code-breakers, broke the Nazi Enigma code to help end World War II. Though Turing was hailed as a hero, he was eventually arrested and prosecuted for homosexuality, along with 49,000 other British men and women. Turing chose to be chemically castrated rather than face imprisonment, so he could continue his work, and it is believed that he committed suicide a few years later. Queen Elizabeth II posthumously pardoned Turing in 2013.

On Jan. 21, Stephen Fry led a discussion about the The Imitation Game following a screening of the film for BAFTA voters, discussed Queen Elizabeth’s pardon and suggested that the 49,000 persecuted men and women should be as well.

5 Ways Actors Over 50 Are Shaking Up Their Careers to Avoid the Johnny Depp Curse

26 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 51-year-old actor adds another flop to his already long streak, but other actors aren’t betting their careers on only box-office bankability

Johnny Depp could be considered one of Hollywood’s biggest stars on the planet, but he hasn’t had a hit at the box office in ages and “Mortdecai” has just been added to the list of bombs.

The actor plays the Wolf in Disney’s ensemble musical “Into the Woods,” but his last leading man hit was 2011’s installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Last year’s “Transcendence” fizzled, as did 2013’s “The Lone Ranger” and »

Is this the line-up for Guillermo Del Toro’s Justice League Dark?

26 January 2015 11:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The last we heard about Guillermo Del Toro’s Justice League Dark was that the script was finished and it would be part of the DC Cinematic Universe. Although, we still have no release date.

In an previous interview, Del Toro stated that the line-up for his Justice League Dark movie would include Swamp Thing, Demon, Deadman and Zatana. Well according to Latino-Review, there could be a slight change to that line-up.

El Mayimbe (who has blocked us on Twitter so thanks to Cbm for the heads up) claims that the line-up will be John Constantine, Zatana, Deadman and Jason Blood.

Del Toro is also working on Pacific Rim 2 with Zak Penn, so there is every chance that Justice League Dark could be on the development table for some time yet.

Before we get to Justice League Dark, we need to kick things off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice »

Off the Carpet: 'Birdman' asserts itself as the Oscar frontrunner

26 January 2015 9:36 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We've come to an interesting crossroads in the race. With all eyes on "Boyhood" coming into the weekend, and a few others on "American Sniper" and "The Imitation Game," it was "Birdman" that walked away the PGA champ Saturday. The SAG Awards left some doubt late in the evening Sunday as to whether the film's odds-on favorite status for the ensemble prize was jeopardized by Eddie Redmayne's lead actor win over Michael Keaton, but when the dust settled, "Birdman" was on top once again. So, some notes on the history. Films that have won both of those awards and gone on to claim the Best Picture Oscar: "Argo," "The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire," "No Country for Old Men," "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" and "Chicago." Films that have won both and gone on to lose the Best Picture Oscar: "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Apollo »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’

25 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who buys a ticket to a film called “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” goes in fully expecting to cry. It’s sort of a given. The surprise, then, is the laughter: the near-constant stream of wise, insightful jokes that make it so easy to cozy up to characters dealing with a tough emotional situation. The story of a high school senior forced to befriend a classmate who has just diagnosed with leukemia, and the sincere, nonsexual connection that forms as a result (sorry, “The Fault in Our Stars,” but there’s no nookie here), this rousing adaptation of Jesse Andrews’ novel is destined not only to connect with young audiences in a big way, but to endure as a touchstone for its generation.

After landing a coveted spot on the 2012 Black List, the coveted assignment went to director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who worked as a personal assistant to Martin Scorsese, »

Jennifer Lopez regrets dating Ben Affleck?

25 January 2015 9:35 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Jennifer Lopez has ''no regrets'' about her relationship with Ben Affleck. The 45-year-old actress admits her split from the actor in 2004 was the ''lowest point'' in her life because their film 'Gigli' also received poor reviews at the time, but claims the experience helped her to grow. The 'Boy Next Door' star said: ''I think the worst, probably lowest point was the whole 'Gigli' era. It was pretty tough. It was a very badly reviewed film. I was in a high-profile relationship at the time that fell apart in a really bad way. I was in the tabloids every other week about how my life was falling apart. It was a tough time.'' But Jennifer, who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with third ex-husband Marc Anthony, says she would date the 'Argo' star, who now has three children with wife Jennifer Garner, »

‘Birdman’ Soars As PGA Sets A New Course For Wide Open Best Picture Oscar Race

25 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

During the cocktail reception before Saturday night’s Producers Guild Awards began I ran into Oscar-nominated Screenwriter (and Director) Dan Gilroy and wife Rene Russo, there supporting one of the ten PGA Darryl F. Zanuck Best Picture nominees, Nightcrawler. Russo, admittedly not a staple at this type of awards-season banquet, asked me if they were going to serve food at this event. “Yes,” I replied, “it’s a dinner.” “So what do you think will win, Boyhood or Birdman?” she wondered. That was an interesting and somewhat surprising way to distill what has been thought to be a wide open race to Oscar until Boyhood basically cleaned up on the critics circuit, capping its run with Golden Globe and  Critics Choice Movie Award wins, while Birdman scored for Michael Keaton but actually lost to Fox Searchlight stablemate The Grand Budapest Hotel in both respective comedy categories. But now with the »

Is Michael Shannon in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

24 January 2015 4:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rumours have resurfaced again about Michael Shannon having a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.

“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?

24 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Charlie Lyne's documentary Beyond Clueless harks back to the classic teen movies that shaped the '90s.

Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

1. Devon Sawa - Idle Hands (1999)

Dreamy Devon Sawa starred as lazy stoner Anton Tobias - who turns mass murderer after his hand becomes possessed - in the horror comedy Idle Hands.

He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music »

Jesse Eisenberg talks reprising Lex Luthor role after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

23 January 2015 12:37 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his latest film, The End of the Tour, premiering at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, Variety caught up with Jesse Eisenberg about the film, but also dropped in a few questions about another small indie film he has coming out next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While Eisenberg didn’t divulge too much, particularly about his hairstyle for the film, the actor did suggest that he would be more than happy to reprise the role in any future DC film, let alone a Batman v Superman sequel.

“I would love to,” says Eisenberg. “It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play.”

Rumours are abound that Luthor is set to appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, whether in a cameo or as the film’s big bad. But while he has obvious excitement about the role and the forthcoming film, »

Jude Law on His ‘Anti-Hero’ Role in ‘Black Sea': ‘Everything Just Turned Me On’

22 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Prepare to see a grave (and aquatic) side of two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law.

In Focus Features’ suspenseful adventure-thriller “Black Sea” — which premiered in New York on Wednesday night — Law gives a charged performance as an abruptly unemployed submarine captain who’s commissioned to lead a team of shoddy British and Russian sailors in search of a Nazi U-boat filled with gold that was lost during World War II.

For the taxing but rewarding project, Law gained weight (by eating lots of steak), shaved his head and learned to speak with a heavy Scottish-Aberdeen accent.

“This was a role that I had never done before, and it was challenging,” Law, 42, told Variety prior to the film’s screening at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema. “I was immediately fascinated by my character’s complexity. He’s a man torn between revenge and reclaiming his dignity. He wasn’t a hero, but more of an anti-hero. »

Watch: 'Saturday Night Live' Sketch 'Fanatic' Written & Directed By Paul Thomas Anderson And Starring Ben Affleck

22 January 2015 10:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fifteen years ago, what would you have imagined the future held for Paul Thomas Anderson? What about Ben Affleck?   In 2000, Affleck was coming off of “Dogma,” “Shakespeare in Love” and “Armageddon.” Sure, he’d already won an Oscar (along with Matt Damon) for writing “Good Will Hunting.” But he was yet to make his feature directorial debut, which would come seven years later with “Gone Baby Gone.” The notion of “Argo” wouldn’t yet be viable, nor would the thought of casting him as Batman. Similarly, P.T.A.’s career was just revving up. He had made “Magnolia,” “Boogie Nights” and “Hard Eight,” but “Punch Drunk Love,” “There Will Be Blood,” and this year’s Best Adapted Screenplay nominee (and our pick for 10th Best Film of the Year) “Inherent Vice” were all yet to be conceived.  So consider this a Throwback Thursday of epic proportions —behold the Paul Thomas Anderson written/directed, »
