Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

18 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Michael Harvey's crime thriller Brighton picked up by Gk Films

4 May 2015 6:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Michael Harvey's crime thriller Brighton, is being adapted for film.

Graham King has acquired the rights and will produce the adaptation for Gk Films.

Brighton follows a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who is drawn back into his crime-ridden Boston neighborhood to investigate a series of murders.

The crimes appear to be the work of his childhood friend who once saved him from a life of crime.

The author also co-created, wrote and was executive producer of the Emmy-nominated show Cold Case Files, and worked as an investigative producer for CBS in Chicago.

He received an Oscar nomination for his Holocaust documentary Eyewitness in 1999.

King's production company was behind Argo, World War Z and 2006's The Departed, which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. »

New Star Wars Trailer! Avengers: Age of Ultron review! – The Flickering Myth Movie Show #3

3 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“Chewie, we’re back for Episode 3 of the Flickering Myth Movie Show.”

In the May edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, we go trailer crazy, disecting and discussing the latest teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and having an alternative look at the cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

We’re also looking at the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Who is in the new line-up? How many more gems does Thanos need for his funky gauntlet? What can we now expect leading into Captain America: Civil War?

And if that wasn’t enough Marvel fun, our very own Luke Owen sits down with Daredevil star Charlie Cox to chat about the Avengers, who he’d like the Man Without Fear to team up with and what can we expect from the just-announced Season 2.

As always, »

Late last night we brought you some promo artwork from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, and now the Trinity is complete with a new image surfacing of Wonder Woman, which suggests that the Amazon Princess will be donning a cloak when she makes her big screen debut in next year’s DC ensemble…

What do you make of that look for Wonder Woman?

Are you ready for Part 2? More Gladiators of the '90s: Then and now

1 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We certainly felt the power of 10 former Gladiators yesterday, as we took a look at what some of the stars went on to after the success of ITV's '90s hit.

We were bowled over to discover that Blaze (Eunice Huthart) is a stunt double to A-listers and godmother to Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh, and that Rhino (Mark Smith) went on to star in Hollywood films including Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning drama Argo.

But whatever happened to the villainous Wolf or the infamous Shadow, who was dramatically sacked from the series? We haven't found many current pictures of this lot, but here's a little bit about what 9 more of our favourite former Gladiators got up to after their time on the show:

1. Scorpio (Nikki Diamond)

Contenders were subjected to the mighty sting of the speedy Scorpio. Former bodybuilder and model Nikki Diamond was an original Gladiator, but was forced »

Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? 10 stars of the hit '90s show then and now

30 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? Can you face the challenge of the champions? Do you have the courage of the heroes?

"Do you have the will or the skill? Do you have the strength, the speed the heart to be a winner? Deep down in your Soul?"

These were the fundamental questions posed by ITV's original Gladiators, to both the audience and brave contenders who dared to take part. While this particular writer longed to be Lightning (her backflips were to die for), all the seemingly superhuman powerhouses were forces to reckon with - only occasionally tamed by strict referee John Anderson.

Originally hosted by John Fashanu and Ulrika Jonsson, Gladiators was what Saturday nights in the '90s were made of.

So as Saracen (aka Mike Lewis) returns to our small screens to tackle the Ninja Warrior UK obstacle course, we pick out some of the »

First Look: Clear Photos Of Ben Affleck In Costume From 'Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

29 April 2015 9:59 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Is Warner Bros.’ DC Universe super hero movies world in trouble? If you’re hiring five writers to pen a “Wonder Woman” screenplay, hiring three others to write an “Aquaman” movie and then canning a bunch of screenplays you’ve already commissioned because they don’t fit inside your “new plan,” something seems amiss. If you’re shooting a ‘Batman v. Superman’ film and then shut down production because you’ve hired a new writer (Academy Award winner of “Argo”), that seems a little odd too, right? What about “The Flash” screenplay from the original “Green Lantern” film writers? Or Will Beall’s unused “Justice League” script? Oh, don’t be alarmist, we’re sure it’s all fine. Meanwhile here’s some new photos of Ben Affleck in Zack Snyder’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” Also starring Henry Cavill as Superman, ‘Dawn of Justice’ is scheduled for »

Will the Joker be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

29 April 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: Potential Spoilers Below!

Following the rumours that Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne/Batman will feature in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, some new rumours have surfaced about the current filming in Toronto and how it affects Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to Latino-Review (who have been very spotty as of late), Affleck is in Toronto to film an extra scene with Jared Leto’s Joker which will be a flashback sequence in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The site claims that the scene they will be shooting sees The Joker use a crowbar to beat Jason Todd/Robin to death, which is why he is in prison during Suicide Squad.

This ties into previous rumours that Jason Todd will already be dead by the time Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice roles around (along with Jim Gordon), as well as other speculation that this version of »

[Review] The Water Diviner

24 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With his directorial debut The Water Diviner, Russell Crowe already aligns himself with the Ben Affleck ideology of acting-directing. The ideas are the same here as with Affleck’s The Town, or parts of his preceding, Academy-dazzling Argo: when directing, shuffle around between a moral dilemma, comic relief, precise historical context, and broad melodrama. When acting, embrace the roots […] »

Henry Cavill says Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a sequel to Man of Steel

22 April 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There has been a lot of backlash from fans of the Last Son of Krypton that The Dark Knight is hijacking his sequel in order to make room for the build to the Justice League. However, Henry Cavill has spoken out against this idea, and says that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a sequel to Man of Steel.

“I’ve only seen a little bit of Adr stuff, but that’s it, and that wasn’t even in colour,” he told MTV News. “I’m hoping to see it [the whole movie] some time this year, for a friends and family screening or something. But I really know nothing about what the finished product looks like. I wouldn’t call this a Superman sequel. This is Batman versus Superman, so it’s a separate entity altogether. It’s introducing the Batman character, and expanding upon this universe, which was kicked off by Man of Steel. »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »
