Home Entertainment in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, A Mad Chance Production, A 22nd & Indiana Production.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) directed American Sniper from a screenplay written by Jason Hall, based on the book by Chris Kyle, with Scott McEwen and James Defelice.

Bradley Cooper and ex girlfriend Suki Waterhouse reunite at Coachella 2015

13 April 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse are reported got back together at the Coachella festival over the weekend. The couple, who dated for two years before splitting in March, were spotted kissing on Friday night at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, with an eyewitness telling the New York Post newspaper the 40-year-old actor and Suki, 23, were ''making out at Coachella backstage during Interpol's set''. What's more, the famous duo were seen looking cozy together while waiting in the queue for food, and they are also reported to have had dinner together in Los Angeles before heading to the iconic event. It was recently claimed that Bradley decided to end their two-year relationship because Suki shunned the chance to spend Valentine's Day (14.02.15) with him. The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actor was upset at Suki's decision to fly to Austin, Texas, with friends rather celebrating the romantic »

'American Sniper's' Bradley Cooper wins the MTV Movie Award for Best Male Performance

12 April 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bradley Cooper had a pretty great 2014, eh? Warner Bros. slid "American Sniper" into the awards season last year and America turned out in droves to see the film, which went on to become the top domestic grosser of the year (beating out the likes of "The Hunger Games" and Marvel's powerhouse offerings — that's impressive). Cooper also picked up an Oscar nod for Best Actor and threatened to steal the prize from frontrunners Eddie Redmayne and Michael Keaton. He'll have to settle for an MTV Movie Award…and all those checks that will continue to land in his mailbox as producer of the film, of course. Cooper won the Best Male Performance award Sunday night, which is sort of a surprise and sort of not. After all, as mentioned, it was the top grosser of the year. And Cooper is a favorite with this crowd, having won a pair of honors »

Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker join Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk

9 April 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vin Diesel is no doubt on cloud nine right now. Having only been released for less than a week, Diesel’s Fast & Furious 7 has already grossed over $400 million worldwide, paving the way for more high-speed car high-jinks in the coming years. But for now, the actor is stepping out of the driver’s seat and into something a little more mellow.

Deadline is reporting that Vin Diesel and comedy-actor Chris Tucker (Silver Linings Playbook) are set to join the already stellar cast for director Ang Lee’s (Life of Pi) newest project, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.

The film tells the story of 19-year-old soldier Billy Lynn and his squad, who survive an Iraq battle that is captured by embedded news cameras, causing them to become celebrated as heroes. They are brought home by the Us administration for a promotional tour that culminates at the halftime show of »

No joke: Vin Diesel, Chris Tucker set for Ang Lee's 'Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk'

8 April 2015 10:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Vin Diesel is jumping back into the prestige movie world.  And, yes, that's "back."  Diesel has made his name in the "Fast and Furious" and Riddick franchises, but many forget he actually has a Steven Spielberg movie on his resume ("Saving Private Ryan").  He also starred in the cult drama "Boiler Room" and voiced the title character in the classic animated film "The Iron Giant."  What many have already forgotten, however, is that Diesel earned the best reviews of his career in Sidney Lumet's 2006 courtroom drama "Find Me Guilty."  Now, Diesel is getting serious again by teaming up with another cinematic master, Ang Lee. According to Deadline, Lee has cast Diesel and Chris Tucker to star in his adaptation of Ben Fountain's novel "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk."  The drama focuses on a group of American soldiers, including Lynn, who are being celebrated for their heroism during the Iraq War. »

Vin Diesel And Chris Tucker Join Ang Lee's Billy Lynn

8 April 2015 5:56 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Edging towards some sort of record for the most eclectic cast ever assembled, director Ang Lee has just added two more names to his roster for Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker have signed up to join Steve Martin, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and newcomer Joe Alwyn.There's no indication of who either will be playing yet, but it's the first time Diesel has turned out for anything other than an action role (Groot nothwithstanding) since Find Me Guilty in 2006. On that occasion he was working for Sidney Lumet, so clearly he's amenable to taking a risk for the right director.Tucker, meanwhile, has been quiet since Silver Linings Playbook in 2012, partly thanks to a lifestyle change since his Jackie Brown / Rush Hour heyday. But it's an interesting footnote that he was previously part of another unusually varied cast in Luc Besson's The Fifth Element. »

Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker Team Up for Billy Lynn’S Long Halftime Walk

8 April 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I had a blind spot for Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk until today but now I'm finally getting clued into this crazy Ang Lee (The Ice Storm, Hulk) directed project via the announcement that Vin Diesel and the ever elusive Chris Tucker have joined the cast. Based on the Ben Fountain novel of the same name, the film is an Iraq War satire that takes place in Texas and revolves around the surviving members of a squad of soldiers who, while preparing to return to Iraq, embark on a media-intensive “Victory Tour” at Texas Stadium. Most of the story takes place on the day of their appearance at the stadium, with flashbacks scattered throughout. The cast for this one is all over the place in a fairly great way and includes Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, and Steve Martin. Simon Beaufoy will adapt Fountain's book for the screen. Tucker is a virtual ghost these days, »

10 Blockbuster Actors Who Came From Nowhere

5 April 2015 7:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During an interview with Steve Merchant in 2008, Louis C.K. joked that the aspiring actors in the audience of Inside the Actor’s Studio who asked the actors the questions were starting from nowhere, and would never themselves make it into the business. “You’ll never be famous,” Louis said. “There’s no way you asked Sean Penn a question and then you’re going to be huge.” A few years later, 2014’s American Hustle (and irony) found Louis co-starring with Bradley Cooper, who had actually done that very thing in 1999. He had asked a question from the Actor’s Studio audience – and quite literally asked it of none other than Sean Penn.

In that same year, on that same show, Cooper also asked a question of Robert De Niro. Cooper then went on to star with De Niro in Limitless (2011), Silver Linings Playbook (2012) – and American Hustle. Add to this the »

‘Serena’ is an incoherent mess

29 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written for the screen by Christopher Kyle

Directed by Susanne Bier

USA/France/Czech Republic, 2014

Based on a bestselling novel by Ron Rash, Serena, as brought to the screen by director Susanne Bier and screenwriter Christopher Kyle, feels like a husk of an adaptation even to one completely unfamiliar with the source material. It’s the sort of film that, at least in the form prepped for theatrical release, makes one inclined to believe its makers have completely lost the ability to tell a story. And it’s not like that ever seems like a deliberate stylistic choice, with Bier actually focusing on some thematic flourish off on the sidelines. Serena is always focused on its plot. Its perpetually rushed, choppily told, borderline confusing plot.

Part of the trouble in the telling is that the film’s a tonal mess. In her native Denmark, and with American cinema forays »

What Really Happened to 'Serena,' Starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence

29 March 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Back in 2012, after Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence co-starred in David O. Russell's Oscar-winning "Silver Linings Playbook" and before its follow-up "American Hustle," the duo shot period drama "Serena," which was once going to star Angelina Jolie with director Darren Aronofsky. Lawrence recommended Cooper and talked him into joining her on the project.  Oscar-winning Danish auteur Susanne Bier ("A Better World") took the helm for producers Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner's 2929 Productions, and has been delayed trying to finish it. Based on Ron Rash's 2008 novel, the film is set in 1929 North Carolina and follows George and Serena Pemberton, ambitious newlyweds with their hearts set on a timber empire. They become obsessed with success, and their lives take a Shakespearean turn when Serena finds that she can't get pregnant and tries to harm her husband's illegitimate son. Why the delays?

Box Office: ‘Home’ Trumps Expectations With $54 Million Debut

29 March 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeffrey Katzenberg must be breathing a huge sigh of relief after the embattled DreamWorks Animation chief scored a much needed box office win with the release of “Home.”

The family film was the weekend’s top ticket seller, pulling in a sterling $54 million, easily eclipsing projections that had it bowing to between $30 million and $35 million. It’s one of the studio’s best-ever openings for an original movie and the biggest debut it has had since 2012’s “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” kicked off to $60.3 million in 2012.

The studio has suffered through a string of film flops such as “Turbo” and “Mr. Peabody and Sherman,” as well as failed sales to Hasbro and SoftBank. “Home” is the only film it is releasing this year, so expectations for the movie about an alien invasion were high and scrutiny was intense. “Home” cost $130 million to produce and launched in 3,708 locations. Fox distributed the picture. »
