The Marvel Superhero Danny DeVito Almost Played

7 October 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you were to ask me, I.d tell you that Rocket Raccoon . the sarcastic anti-hero from James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy -- sounds nothing like Bradley Cooper. The Oscar nominee affects some type of off-key accent when voicing his lines for Guardians, so there.s no trace of the native Philadelphian accent that can be heard in films like American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook or The Hangover. However, Rocket Raccoon almost sounded very, very different. though he still would have had Philadelphia ties.     During a recent, and impromptu, Q-and-a event held on his Facebook page, James Gunn revealed that none other than Danny DeVito was one of the voices that they considered when looking for Rocket. But for obvious reasons, it didn.t work out. Gunn explained: In all honesty, Danny DeVito is one of the voices we tried out. But Danny DeVito is an older man »

The Hollywood Film Awards Series: Robert De Niro is a veteran actor once again in the awards hunt

5 October 2015 5:39 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Late last week, word spread throughout the industry that legendary actor Robert De Niro was going to be the latest recipient of the Hollywood Career Achievement Award at the 19th edition of the Hollywood Film Awards. This marks just the latest in a long line of honors for De Niro throughout the course of his time as an actor. A two time Academy Award winner, he’ll also be in contention once more this year for Oscar love as part of another David O. Russell ensemble, this one being the upcoming film Joy. With this tribute coming his way, I wanted to do the same today as the first installment of the Hollywood Film Awards Series. De Niro is probably best known for his actor/filmmaker relationship with Martin Scorsese, which resulted in an Academy Award for Best Actor going De Niro’s way for Raging Bull. The partnership began with Mean Streets, »

Gross! Jennifer Lawrence Says She Doesn't Wash Her Hands After The Bathroom

2 October 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The "Hunger Games" stars have a lot of unique skills!  Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence got extremely candid about some of their talents and nasty habits while chatting with MTV.  During the campfire convo, each of the stars played a little game of "Truth or Dare," where J.Law revealed some of the her and Josh's bad habits and Lawrence proved she can stuff an obnoxious amount of marshmallows in her mouth.  Check out the video above to see the trio's hilarious interview!  "What's the most disgusting habit of one of your costars," the interviewer asked Liam, after he picked "truth."  "Oh my gosh, Josh -- I can't name just one -- with the cricking of his neck and making that disgusting noise, he does spit bubbles when he is thinking ... it's cool, but it's spit," the Oscar-winning actress confessed.  "[One of] my gross ones, is probably ...

16 new images from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

2 October 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s hard to believe that the Hunger Games series is already coming to an end. Ever since Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteered as tribute on behalf of her sister Primrose, she has gone head-first into a war against the tyrannical Capitol. In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Katniss has her final confrontation with President Snow (Donald Sutherland), as she fights for the revolution in Panem.

The Hunger Games as a franchise started a revolution of it’s own, as it was the book series that started the insanely popular trend of dystopian narratives that featured teenagers fighting wars in favour of morality and freedom. Not only that, but it essentially launched the career of Jennifer Lawrence, who is now not just an Oscar winner (she won Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook), but who also is highly regarded as one of the best young actresses of her generation, »

The Intern movie review: so much nice, so little help

2 October 2015 2:48 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A nice movie about real problems people face in real life, and it deals with them in as sidelong a way as it possibly can, avoiding all strong emotion. I’m “biast” (pro): love De Niro (mostly)

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Nancy Meyers

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s a long list of ways in which movies can be inoffensive, and The Intern ticks them all off. This is a nice movie about real problems people face in real life, and it deals with them in as sidelong a way as it possibly can, avoiding all strong emotion even when it comes to matters that touch at our innermost selves, such as the betrayal of infidelity and the infuriation of not being taken seriously no matter how smart or successful you are simply because of ingrained bigotry.

Jennifer Lawrence Bashes Donald Trump: If He's Elected It Will Be "The End Of The World"

1 October 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Guess Donald Trump won't be getting Jennifer Lawrence's vote!  "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" star got extremely candid about the Gop frontrunner while chatting with Entertainment Weekly.  When asked what the 25-year-old actress thought about Trump for president, Lawrence didn't hold back.  "If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world," the actress candidly said, while promoting the new "Hunger Games" flick with her costars. Liam Hemsworth shared Jen's sentiments, saying "I’ll back you up on that."  Lawrence also still believes there could be a chance that the "Apprentice" alum's campaign is just for show.  "I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment," she explained. "It’s either that or it’s Hillary’s brilliant idea."  Even if Donald is serious about the election -- to be fair, it seems »

Showdown Between Young & Old for Best Actress

22 September 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Of the four major acting award categories at the Oscars (Best Actor/Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress), women have traditionally been awarded at much younger ages than their male counterparts. Dating back to 1974, when Tatum O’Neal (then only 10 years of age) won best supporting actress for her role in Paper Moon, the list of young female talent to be nominated, and in certain cases win, at the Oscars is noteworthy.

In recent years, however, there has been a number of older actresses who have gone home with Oscars, including last year’s best actress winner Julianne Moore who, at the age of 54 became the 10th oldest recipient of that award in Oscars history for her role as a woman suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease in Still Alice.

With strong performances by a crop of talent young and old this year, it is »

20 September 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence in a recent issue of "Marie Claire" (France) magazine:

"A powerful woman is someone who exudes confidence," said Lawrence, "and can be tough but fair and kind...and also knows how to get what she wants..."

At age 22, Lawrence's played 'Tiffany Maxwell' in the David O. Russell-directed romantic comedy "Silver Linings Playbook" (2012) earning her several awards...

...including a 'Golden Globe' Award for Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) and the 'Academy Award' for Best Actress, making her the second-youngest Best Actress winner at the Oscars.

For her supporting role in Russell's comedy-drama "American Hustle" (2013), she won a Golden Globe, 'BAFTA' Award and received a third Academy Award nomination, for Best Supporting Actress.

Jennifer Lawrence's Joy Has Triggered A Behind-The-Scenes Fight

16 September 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As it turns out, working on Joy was not always joyful. Just ask Annie Mumolo. The Bridesmaids screenwriter was hired by Fox 2000 back in 2012 to write the script for the film about Miracle Mop creator Joy Mangano. But you may recall, though, that David O. Russell also worked on the script, and it was this overlap that caused a dispute that could potentially leak into awards season.  The Hollywood Reporter has the full story on the matter, and according to the report, Mumolo spent a year writing the script for Joy, becoming close with the real life subject. When she turned it into the studio, however, executives thought it needed more character development. Shortly afterwards, Russell was offered the job of directing the project, and brought on his Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle darling Jennifer Lawrence to star.  Part of the gig’s details allowed »

The Intern Releases A Slew Of Images In Case You Still Need To Be Sold

16 September 2015 5:14 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Some movies just have you at hello (and if they don’t, they probably won’t ever get you), and The Intern is one of those films. Warner Bros. has released a new set of images, and they actually clue you in to more detail than the trailer, but further marketing for this one is probably a lost cause. If Robert De Niro showing up to be Anne Hathaway‘s intern doesn’t suck you in, you’re immovable.

If the added information that this one is written and directed by Nancy Meyers still doesn’t do anything for you, I don’t think there’s the slightest hope of reaching you.

As I said, the images reveal a bit more of the story, especially in the sense of De Niro and Hathaway appearing with a cute kid, but I don’t think that’s going to be big reveal »

Oscars 2016: 10 early predictions for this year's Best Picture nominations

5 September 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Summer is over, and you know what that means in Hollywood – time to dust off those statuettes and start lobbying. Film festival season is about to kick off in earnest, with Venice, Toronto and New York all taking place back-to-back over the next month, which means that we'll soon have a clear(ish) picture of the 2016 Oscar race.

Specifically, we'll have a sense of which would-be frontrunners are shaping up to be this year's Birdman and Whiplash, and which look more like this year's Unbroken and Big Eyes. In the meantime, Digital Spy has rounded up ten of 2016's most likely contenders for Best Picture.


Premiering at Cannes this year to rapturous praise and multiple standing ovations, Todd Haynes's period romance is already one of the year's most acclaimed releases. Based on Patricia Highsmith's long-banned novel of the same name, Carol stars Cate Blanchett as a mysterious »

Tom Hanks, Lisa Cholodenko to Be Honored by Outfest

3 September 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Outfest will honor Tom Hanks and Lisa Cholodenko at ceremonies on Nov. 5 at Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles.

Hanks will be honored with the Trailblazer Award in recognition of his Oscar-winning performance in 1993’s “Philadelphia.” Outfest noted that it was the first major studio film to sympathetically portray characters with HIV/AIDS.

Cholodenko is receiving the Visionary Award, which recognizes artistic and creative contributions to Lgbt media visibility, for a body of work that includes “The Kids Are All Right.”

“More than two decades later, Tom Hanks’ performance as a gay man with AIDS in ‘Philadelphia’ stands as a landmark example of a risk well taken,” says Outfest Board Co-President and Legacy Awards Event Co-Chair Ari Karpel. “And his Oscar acceptance speech, in which he eloquently honored two gay men who were influential in his life, sent an essential message during a time of crisis.”
