14 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have reportedly broken up for the second time.

After multiple rumors that Jennifer Lawrence, 23, and Nicholas Hoult, 24, have split for the second time, E! News is reporting that the X-Men couple are indeed over.

"They spent a lot of time apart because of work and it was difficult on their relationship," a source says.

And clearly, both are keeping busy with their respective film careers.

Hoult in particular is currently filming the sci-fi drama Equals in Japan, where he was recently snapped getting sushi with co-star Kristen Stewart, 24.

29 July 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Burning question of the day: why is Bradley Cooper flipping burgers?! The 39-year-old hunk was spotted at the Leicester Square branch of Burger King in London on Sunday, where he was seen learning the ropes at the fast food restaurant chain. But in case you're wondering why the Oscar-nominated actor, who is worth millions of dollars, might be taking up a new career path, let us quickly clarify: Cooper was simply filming for his upcoming movie Adam Jones alongside costar Sienna Miller. While the Silver Linings star may not actually be working at Burger King, he still one of the hottest Whooper-makers we've ever seen and was snapped looking handsome in a black leather jacket and »

Love According to 21st Century Movies

27 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!” so says Ewan McGregor in Baz Luhrmann’s classic romantic tragedy, Moulin Rouge!

It’s a thought that has persisted in cinema for well over a century. Love is what motivates characters; it’s a dream they want to realize, a reality they have to face, the content of their musings in their nightly diary entries.

Decades of cinema have seen the nature of other genres completely overturned. More and more, horrors are gearing towards high-concept supernatural thrillers over human killers; comedies are willing to get raunchier, with a whole lot more swearing; action movies are only too eager to show off brutal set-pieces; and comic book movies and sci-fi films have the effects capable of making the unreal real.

But romance? How much has that changed? And how much do we really want it to? »

Are Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence Over?!

25 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Has Nicolas Hoult moved on to ... Riley Keough?!

Say it ain't so!

Looks like the rumors that X-Men: Days of Future Past co-stars and real-life adorable couple Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are hitting a rough patch in their rekindled romance have picked up full steam again, with Page Six reporting that Hoult was spotted "snuggling up" to model/actress Riley Keough at No. 8's "Philo Prom" party in New York City Wednesday.

Related: Nicholas Hoult on What Makes J. Law So 'Special'

"They were sitting arm-in-arm in a booth with Adam Lambert and Charl Brown," Page Six quotes a source.

The pair "looked cozy," the eyewitness adds.

However, it could be that the two are just close co-stars, having worked together in the highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road.

Hoult, 24, and Lawrence, 23, began dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of X-Men: First Class, but broke up in January 2013, reportedly because Hoult was uncomfortable with Lawrence's »

Jacki Weaver Talks Magic In The Moonlight, Working with Woody Allen, Psychic Mediums, Life After Animal Kingdom, Equals and More

25 July 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Jacki Weaver is killing it.  She already had a prolific career in Australia, but when Animal Kingdom came out and earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, she quickly became a hot commodity in America.  Since, she’s delivered some chilling material in Stoker and also scored another Academy Award nomination for her work in David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, and now she’s adding yet another noteworthy achievement to the list, appearing in a Woody Allen film. In Magic in the Moonlight, Weaver steps in as Grace, a grieving widow who misses her husband so much that she turns to a supposed psychic medium (Emma Stone) to put them back in touch.  While in New York City promoting the film’s release, Weaver sat down with us to talk about the art of nailing a supporting character, working with Allen, whether or not she believes in psychic mediums, »

Uncharted Movie Release Date Set for June 10, 2016

23 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony’s adaptation of their best-selling video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has been in the works for years.  David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) was attached several years ago, and after he left the project, Neil Burger (Divergent) stepped in, but he eventually dropped out as well.  Earlier this year, director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) signed on to direct, and last week he said he hopes to begin filming in early 2015.  Now, THR’s Borys Kit has tweeted that the Uncharted release date will be June 10, 2016. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, it follow treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who is the descendant of famous explorer Sir Francis Drake.  The games carry a blockbuster attitude as they take the player around the wisecracking, Indiana Jones-inspired protagonist around the globe to find fabled cities like El Dorado and Shangri-La.  The Uncharted games are pretty much interactive movies if movies featured a »

Film Review: ‘Magic in the Moonlight’

17 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Romance blooms under the sun and the stars in Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight,” a high-spirited bauble that goes down easy thanks to fleet comic pacing, a surfeit of ravishing Cote d’Azur vistas and the genuinely reactive chemistry of stars Colin Firth and Emma Stone. A welcome balm for the blockbuster-addled soul, Allen’s 44th feature finds the director back in the 1920s Gallic mood of 2011’s “Midnight in Paris,” with the star-crossed lovers this time held apart not by time but rather by philosophical inclinations. While the result may not quite equal “Midnight’”s box office bonanza, expect “Magic” to handily corner the upscale adult demo for the remainder of summer, continuing the Woodman’s late-career hot streak.

A childhood magic buff and amateur magician, Allen has incorporated hypnotists, stage illusionists and touches of the supernatural into many films including “Alice,” “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion” and “Scoop, »

Uncharted Movie Exploring Early 2015 Start

17 July 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Harrison Ford is getting old, and Lucasfilm is still struggling to find ways to keep the Indiana Jones franchise going with or without the actor, but is there a new intrepid explorer already on the scene? Columbia Pictures certainly seems to think it has found one in Nathan Drake, as the studio appears to be moving full steam ahead with an adaptation of Uncharted, the video-game franchise in which that character stars.

A few filmmakers have come aboard and later departed the project, including Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell, Divergent helmer Neil Burger and This is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, but now it appears that Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) has been locked in. While recently speaking with Zap2It, Gordon revealed:

“I think very early next year. That’s the plan. That’s like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie… »

Jennifer Lawrence Suffers Spray Tan Malfunction, Flashes Serious Side Boob and Messes With Emma Watson at Paris Fashion Week

7 July 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Looks like somebody ran into a bit of trouble in the spray tan department. While Jennifer Lawrence undoubtedly turned heads in her monochromatic Dior ensemble upon her arrival at the Christian Dior fashion show held during Paris Fashion Week – Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014-2015, the 23-year-old Oscar winner looked slightly less immaculate in the beauty department as she appeared to have a makeup malfunction. The Silver Linings star's spray tan (or perhaps the foundation on her face?) seemed to be just one shade too dark for her natural skin tone—and simply did not match the actress' sun kissed glow on the rest of her body. To make matters worse, Lawrence's frosty makeup, including »

10 Silver Linings To Godawful Comic Book Movies

7 July 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Comic book fans are notoriously hard to please. We’re the ones who have dedicated hours and hours of our lives grappling with complicated back stories and tricky continuity issues to enjoy our hobby to the full extent. Some may laugh, but more than many other pastimes, comic book reading requires dedication and perseverance, which is exactly why the fans become so invested in the movie adaptations.

Geeks have never had it so good right now, with the success of incredible comic book films like The Dark Knight and Avengers Assemble, but let’s face it…

Some comic book movies just suck.

Bad casting. Poor script writing. Shoddy effects. To paraphrase Mr Burns, these are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in the comic book movie making business. Unfortunately, many adaptations succumb to one or more of these demons, outraging dedicated fans who are appalled »

News Nuggets: Jennifer Lawrence named the most powerful actress in the world

1 July 2014 6:10 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In just four short years, Jennifer Lawrence has earned an Oscar win among three nominations, and she is now declared as the most powerful actress in the world. Beyond that victory for "Silver Linings Playbook" and nods for "Winter's Bone" and "American Hustle," her ranking is mostly based on the success of "The Hunger Games" film franchise. She is the 12th overall person on the new Forbes Celebrity 100 list. The top five are singer Beyonce, basketball star LeBron James, producer Dr. Dre, entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey, comedian/talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Thompson on Hollywood. -Break- Oscar-nominated writer and director Paul Mazursky dies in Los Angeles at age 84. Though he was never nodded as a director, he competed four times as a writer for "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice," "Harry and Tonto," "Enemies: A Love Story," and "An Unmarried Woman" (for which he also earned a producing bid).

Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance

1 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sure, it would be easy to rattle off all sorts of movie titles that feature the name of colors. Go ahead and knock yourself out: The Pink Panther, Red Dawn, Yellow Submarine, Purple Rain, Blue Velvet, Goldfinger, etc. The listing seems rather endless. However, can one come up with color-contained movie titles that also carry some messaging of substance and contemplation?  Maybe films such as Fried Green Tomatoes or Steel Magnolias are color-coated entries that carries some relevance in its messaging about feminine empowerment for instance. In Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance let us look are the leading selections that have both color (in title) and substance (in thematic forethought) attached to its skin. Hey, maybe one can make a case for Pink Flamingos but The Blue Lagoon might be stretching things a bit…don’t you think? The Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color »

Mutual Friends Review

30 June 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s all well and good for a film to flat out tell you it has a heart, but that still doesn’t mean it actually has one. There are the occasional movies that just seem imbued with a natural, raw humanity and love, elevating them far beyond what most would expect of them. The Lego Movie did it earlier this year, taking a project that seemed all but doomed to become two hours of product placement and turning it into an insanely fun ride that endorsed creativity above all else. David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook did it a couple of years ago as well, taking a mish-mash of indie drama and romcom tropes and imbuing it with a true and beautiful belief in its characters and the love that drew them together. Mutual Friends is, it’s fair to say, not Silver Linings Playbook, no matter how much it tries to be. »

Jennifer Lawrence Is the Most Powerful Actress in the World

30 June 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

She may not have won an Oscar this year, but Jennifer Lawrence is still the top actress in Hollywood, according to a new Forbes ranking.

The financial publication placed Lawrence at the top of its Most Powerful Actresses list for 2013-2014, thanks to her multiple millions-earning franchises and her long list of award nominations -- and wins -- from her short career. Of her selection as Hollywood's biggest female power player, Forbes writes:

Who says women can't be action heroes? Just 23 years old, Lawrence is proving that women can be as big a draw for blockbusters as men. "The Hunger Games" is the most successful young adult franchise since "Twilight" and her recent turn as Mystique in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" helped make the movie the highest-grossing of the franchise. Combine that box office prowess with three Oscar nominations and one win and you have the most powerful actresses in Hollywood. »

30 June 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Jennifer Lawrence has come a long way since 2010's "Winter's Bone." She landed a Best Actress nomination for that hardscrabble drama, won the Oscar for "Silver Linings Playbook" and a supporting actress nomination for "American Hustle." But it's her franchise roles as Katniss Everdeen in the "Hunger Games" franchise and Mystique in the "X-Men" series that earned her a place at the top of Forbes' most powerful actresses list--and 12th overall.
