On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble.

The Search For Amazing Amy Continues In Two New Gone Girl Posters

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

David Fincher is a reliably fascinating and moody filmmaker, so I’m very excited to see what he does with the tangled mystery at the heart of his latest film, thriller Gone Girl. The film, which Gillian Flynn adapted from her own bestseller, seems very likely to be one of this fall’s most potent Oscar contenders. It centers on a missing woman named Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike), the search for whom turns the country upside down. As her husband Nick (Ben Affleck) searches for any trace of her, the police begin to suspect him of her murder. But as the clues pile up, Nick realizes that nothing in the case of his wife’s disappearance is as it seems.

Two intriguing new posters have just hit the web, playing up the haunting nature of the massive search for Amy. Affleck is still the center of the marketing campaign, which is understandable given that, »

Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren to star in Jay Roach's 'Trumbo'

31 July 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren are set to star in Jay Roach’s Trumbo, a film about Roman Holiday writer Dalton Trumbo, their reps confirmed to EW.

Cranston will play the titular character, who made a career as a screenwriter before he was blacklisted from Hollywood in 1947 after refusing to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities. After using a pseudonym, Trumbo was eventually able to claim his works, including 1960s Spartacus and Exodus, using his real name.

Helen Mirren will play Hedda Hopper, a gossip columnist who was against Trumbo and an avid supporter of his blacklisting. The Wrap reports that John Goodman, »

John Goodman Sought To Un-Blacklist Cranston In ‘Trumbo’

31 July 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Austin Powers director Jay Roach is turning his lens on a more serious subject for latest picture Trumbo, starring Bryan Cranston. Cranston plays the title role of Dalton Trumbo, the screenwriter of Spartacus amongst others, who ended up on the infamous blacklist thanks to the House Un-American Activities Committee in the late Forties. One of numerous individuals who refused to testify and hence got tarred by the Commie brush, Trumbo worked under pseudonyms, partly helped by producer Frank King. Roach wants John Goodman in the part of King and if the bear-like actor accepts he and Cranston will be back in the movie subterfuge business – the pair previously worked on a conspiracy to create a fake sci-fi film in Argo.

Soreness abounds to this day about the blacklist, with stars like Ed Harris refusing to applaud director Elia Kazan during the Oscars in 1999 due to his naming names. Others who »

John Goodman Back to Hollywood with Bryan Cranston in 'Trumbo'

31 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following supporting roles in the Best Picture winning Argo, it looks like John Goodman and Bryan Cranston will deal with the Hollywood of the past all over again. The Wrap reports Goodman is joining Cranston in Trumbo, the periods drama from director Jay Roach which features the "Breaking Bad" star as screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, the writer of classics like Spartacus and Roman Holiday who was blacklisted and sent to prison during the Red Scare when the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (Huac) was questioning Hollywood talents about Communist ties, forcing many, like Trumbo, to have pseudonyms. This sounds like exactly the kind of film the Academy will swoon over, especially with a cast like this. Goodman's role in the film, if a deal closes, would be that of producer Frank King of King Brothers Productions who hired Trumbo to write for them besides being blacklisted. The actor joins Helen Mirren who »

Chris Terrio Returning To Write Warner Bros’ ‘Justice League’

31 July 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

For every excited fanboy eagerly anticipating the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, there is an equally pessimistic moviegoer ready to raise a sceptical eyebrow.

The film has been heavily criticised for its strange casting choices, seemingly unnecessary characters and overly ambitious narrative. However, fans have been particularly enthused about Zack Snyder’s intention to incorporate elements of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns into the films script. This, coupled with the gorgeous design of Batman’s new costume, has generated enough positive publicity to keep the film at the forefront of moviegoers’ minds. Having said that, a film teaming up the worlds two most famous superheroes doesn’t need to impress anyone in order to get bums on seats in May 2016.

Now we have some more good news on the project, as it has been revealed that Argo’s Chris Terrio has been approached to write Warner Bros. »

John Goodman Will Reteam With Bryan Cranston for Trumbo Biopic

30 July 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Wrap reports that John Goodman is in talks to join Helen Mirren and Bryan Cranston in Trumbo, a biopic about the Oscar-winning screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Spartacus, Roman Holiday), who was blacklisted in the late '40s after refusing to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Cranston is to play Trumbo and Mirren will play Hedda Hopper, the gossip columnist who helped take him down, while Goodman is in talks to play Frank King, a producer who hired Trumbo while he was blacklisted. Fun fact: Along with Argo, this marks the second movie Cranston and Goodman have starred in together that has a one word, bisyllabic title ending in o. What's next on the docket — Disney's live-action Dumbo reboot? (We hope so. That would be awesome.) »

John Goodman Circles 'Trumbo' Opposite Bryan Cranston

30 July 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After taking on Hollywood makeup artist John Chambers in 2012 Best Picture winner Argo, John Goodman is circling a role in the biopic Trumbo, which would reunite him with Argo co-star Bryan Cranston.

No deal is in place yet, but John Goodman is expected to accept an offer to play Hollywood producer Frank King in the Dalton Trumbo biopic. Bryan Cranston is portraying the screenwriter, considered one of Hollywood's best in the 1940s, whose career came grinding to a halt in 1947, after he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee during their investigation into the motion picture industry.

Despite being blacklisted as one of the "Hollywood 10" writers, Frank King continued to hire Dalton Trumbo, who would write under pseudonyms. The screenwriter won two Oscars while he was blacklisted for Roman Holiday and The Brave One, which was produced by Frank King.

Helen Mirren is also attached to star, although »

John Goodman In Talks For Trumbo

30 July 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

They may not have shared any scenes, but Bryan Cranston and John Goodman were both great in Argo. Now they may get the chance to shine together as director Jay Roach has Goodman in talks for a role in Trumbo, which Cranston is locked to star in alongside Helen Mirren.It’ll be based on the experiences of Dalton Trumbo, who was locked up in 1950 for refusing to answer questions before the notorious House Un-American Activities Committee, led by Senator Joseph McCarthy. The panel was obsessed with rooting out suspected communists in Hollywood (and elsewhere) and for his stance, Trumbo was blacklisted and refused work. He managed to score assignments under various pseudonyms, but it wasn't until Spartacus in 1960 that he got public credit for his work again.Assuming he accepts the job offer, Goodman would play Frank King, a powerful producer in Hollywood who hires Trumbo to work for »

All good things must come to an end at some point. Yes folks, this is the final installment of this series of mine, and as such, it’s (hopefully) a bit of a doozy…the Best Picture field. Without a doubt, this is the big one, so it’s the one where the list will be the most important and I hope interesting to look at as well.

Review: AMC's 'Halt and Catch Fire' nears end of season 1

28 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Late in last night's episode of AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire," the show's hero, computer salesman Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), tries to dismiss a competitor who's never experienced the joy of creating something(*). Joe's rival points out that they're both in the computer compatible business, just trying to copy Ibm, and therefore neither can brag much about their flair for originality. (*) As you might expect, this column will have some spoilers for the season to date. Having apparently bested Joe with his own portable Ibm clone, he says, "You tried to be good. We just had to be good enough." It was one of many meta exchanges in the penultimate season 1 episode of "Halt," a series that has not only been reverse-engineered from past cable drama hits, but that seems acutely aware of that fact. So Joe is essentially a 1983 version of Don Draper: a mystery man in expensive suits »

Argo's Chris Terrio to pen Justice League

27 July 2014 10:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After working on Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, it looks as if Chris Terrio is Warner Bros' choice to pen Justice League.

News

Warner Bros may not have officially announced Justice League at Comic-Con over the weekend, but it's still a live DC project, that Zack Snyder will be tackling once he's done with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

One detail about the film did come to light over the weekend, though, and that's the identity of the person who's set to write it. Chris Terrio, who snagged an Oscar for his Argo screenplay and who also worked on the current Batman V Superman project, has apparently been hired to tackle a Justice League screenplay. Inevitably, there aren't too many more details than that at the moment. But his appointment is apparently down to the quality of the work he did on the Dawn Of Justice script.
