Production Begins on Gus Van Sant’s Sea Of Trees Starring Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, and Naomi Watts

10 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

"The McConaissance" continues as Gus Van Sant’s new project Sea of Trees starts shooting today.  As you may have guessed, the film stars Matthew McConaughey as well as Ken Watanabe and Naomi Watts.  Penned by Chris Sparling, the story follows a man who enters the “Suicidal Forest” at Mount Fuji with the intention of taking his own life.  When he is interrupted by a Japanese man who is having second thoughts about his own suicide, the two “begin a journey of reflection and survival.” This sounds exactly like the kind of film I feel Van Sant should be doing and it makes me glad that 50 Shades of Grey dalliance ended for him when it did.  Hit the jump for the full press release on Sea of Trees starting up.  The film will shoot on location in Massachusetts and Japan with no release date set as-of-yet. Here’s the press release: Bloom, »

Can ‘The Divide’ Do for We Tv What ‘Mad Men’ Did for AMC?

11 July 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Next week, We tv will premiere “The Divide,” marking the basic cabler first attempt at an original scripted series — a leap into its rebranding strategy to be less known for femme-focused programming.

Created by writer-director Richard Lagravenese (“Behind the Candelabra,” “Water for Elephants”) and “Scandal” actor Tony Goldwyn, the eight-episode series follows a case worker and a district attorney both struggling to maintain their morals in a corrupt and racist justice system where an inmate is behind bars for a crime he (maybe?) didn’t commit. (Goldwyn also directed two episodes during his off time from leading the free world on “Scandal.”) If this sounds more high-brow that what’s expected from We tv, that’s because it was a project originally workshopped for sister channel AMC.

At the channel’s Television Critics’ Assn. panel on Friday at the Beverly Hilton hotel, the creators and stars commented on this inevitable »

Nick Jonas and Dylan Penn make for one very hot couple! No, they're not dating! The two were in downtown L.A. this weekend shooting a secret video project for Mr. Jonas. "It's very hot," a source exclusively tells me. "It was very sexy and steamy." Filming took place over two days at the Hotel Alexandria, an historic building which has also been used for Dreamgirls, Water for Elephants and Se7en. Sources declined to detail what the video was for, but they assured us, as one eyewitness put it, "there was a ton of chemistry."

Reese Witherspoon fights the good fight in first trailer for 'The Good Lie'

22 June 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been a rough couple of years to be a fan of Reese Witherspoon: when the actress picked up her Oscar eight years ago for "Walk the Line," the universe appeared to have better things in store for her than, say, "This Means War." Even when her films have worked out -- the critically-endorsed Americana of "Mud" or the ripe Camembert pleasures of "Water for Elephants" -- they haven't showcased her especially well. So it's nice to see Witherspoon getting busy again with a range of upscale projects this year. We've already seen her recently in Atom Egoyan's West Memphis Three thriller "Devil's Knot" -- a film best described as superfluous, though she does some fine, flavorful work in it. Will another true-life drama fare better for Witherspoon? In Philippe Falardeau's "The Good Lie," she plays Carrie Davis, a straight-talking American assigned to help a quartet of »

Robert Pattinson Facts: 23 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Actor

20 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Robert Pattinson has been tough to miss ever since breaking out in 2008's "Twilight" as a hunky vampire.

The film catapulted Pattinson to international success seemingly overnight, and after four more "Twilight" films and millions of dollars in the bank, the actor is looking to shake that role. Pattinson has, however, proved his acting chops in indies like "Cosmopolis" and can be seen in the critically-acclaimed thriller "The Rover" opposite Guy Pearce this summer.

From his surprising karaoke partner to his connection with an asteroid, here are 23 things you probably don't know about Robert Pattinson.

1. Pattinson was born May 13, 1986 in London, England to Clare and Richard Pattinson.

2. His father imported vintage cars from the Us, while his mother worked for a modeling agency.

3. The actor was raised Roman Catholic.

4. Growing up in the Barnes suburb of London, Pattinson became involved with the Barnes Theatre Company at a young age and »

Robert Pattinson New Haircut: Loved His Shaved Head In 'The Rover'

16 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Robert Pattinson opened up about shaving his head for his most recent post-Twilight film The Rover, with director David Michôd calling the haircut “horrific.”

Robert Pattinson's New Haircut In 'The Rover'

Pattinson became an overnight sensation by playing Edward Cullen in the popular Twilight films, but has been slowly breaking out of his teenage heartthrob image with grittier roles – Water for Elephants (2011), Cosmopolis (2012). The Rover, from writer/director David Michôd, marks Pattinson’s first feature film release since the release of the last Twilight film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in 2012, and Pattinson appears happy to leave his Edward Cullen look behind.

Throughout the filming of Twilight, Pattinson kept his hair relatively long due to filming and shocked fans when he suddenly shaved his head for The Rover. Pattinson said he loved the look, telling E! News, “It’s like the skin on the back of your neck, »

Robert Pattinson Talks The Rover in Behind-the-Scenes Video (See!)

10 June 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Robert Pattinson provides some unique perspective on his character in a new behind-the-scenes video for his latest film “The Rover.” Co-star Guy Pearce and Director David Michod also provide some commentary. Rob’s character Reynolds, or Rey for short, is one of the more complex and nuanced that he’s played in any film so far. It’s also against character compared with his previous films from “Twilight,” “Bel Ami” and “Remember Me” to “Water for Elephants.” ...Read More »

Is Robert Pattinson Going To Be The Next Indiana Jones?

3 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This vicious little rumor was started by the UK rag Daily Star recently and it has become an internet wildfire. They don’t reveal their source, but the site says that they have an inside man in Disney who says there is a short list of who will be taking over for Harrison Ford and that Robert Pattinson is at the top of the list.

I know that there is going to be a huge backlash that comes with this rumor, and that is expected because he does not fit the archetype for the role. However, if they are going to recast the role, who would you choose? In my opinion, as long as it is not Shia Labeouf or Hayden Christensen the movie will have a shot.

Most will argue that he is unfit for the role since he starred in the Twilight saga. That is an invalid argument »

Devil’s Knot movie review: well-worn tracks

9 May 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Atom Egoyan is all over the real-life case of American injustice surrounding the West Memphis Three. But sadly, I’m not sure why. I’m “biast” (pro): I’ve been following the real-life story depicted here for many years; love the cast and director

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Atom Egoyan, who is a pretty amazing filmmaker — his The Sweet Hereafter must be one of the saddest, wisest movies ever made — is all over the case of the West Memphis Three… and, sadly, I’m not sure why. The real-life story is already a notorious modern anti-classic of American injustice, thanks to an ongoing online campaign and four documentaries — Paradise Lost trilogy and the recent West of Memphis — devoted to the plight of the three men who, as teens, were convicted of the supposedly Satanic murders of three little »

Robert Pattinson Does His Best Lady Gaga Artpop Impression for Premiere Magazine

2 May 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This Robert Pattinson magazine cover is concerning for so many reasons. First, is the Water for Elephants star imitating a clown after a bar fight or Lady Gaga's infamous face paint from the Artpop album? If the answer is Gaga, then what inspired him to copy her crazy in such a scary way? And finally, is celebrity face paint going to turn into a legitimate thing?! Because if "Edward" is doing it, then we can only assume every teenager around the world will follow. We can barely focus on the floral and graphic sweatshirt RPattz is wearing with this monster-like makeup, for obvious reasons, but even that is oddly dark and scary. Unbelievable as this may be, the G.U.Y. singer may be the less insane »

Saddam Capture Thriller to Look for New Lead After Busy Pattinson Leaves Project

28 April 2014 7:21 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Pattinson out of ‘Mission: Blacklist’ movie (photo: Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson in ‘Life’) Robert Pattinson and Mission: Blacklist have parted ways. Pattinson, whose name had been attached to the project for two years — since Cannes 2012 — has reportedly dropped out due to scheduling issues. Now, what could those issues be? Well, Robert Pattinson, best known (at least for the time being) as the vampire Edward Cullen in the immensely popular Twilight movie franchise, has no less than two movies opening at Cannes 2014: David Michôd’s thriller The Rover, co-starring Guy Pearce, which will be shown as one of Cannes’ Midnight Screenings, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, also featuring Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Carrie Fisher, and which is in the running for the Palme d’Or. There’s more: Robert Pattinson has recently completed work on Anton Corbijn’s Life, with Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock, »

'Scandal' star Tony Goldwyn's latest project 'The Divide': Watch the first trailer -- Exclusive

18 April 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Scandal might be done for the season, but this summer, Tony Goldwyn will be back on TV in a different way.

In July, the Goldwyn-produced drama The Divide, which he worked on with Richard Lagravenese (Behind the Candelabra), will make its debut on the rebranded WEtv network, and Entertainment Weekly has your first look at the series.

“It’s absolutely insane, but intoxicating as well,” Goldwyn told EW back in late November of juggling writing and producing with his Scandal duties. “It’s incredibly busy doing both, but so incredibly creatively inspiring.”

The drama centers on an Innocence Initiative caseworker (Marin Ireland, »

This May Be the Smartest Dog in the Entire World

14 April 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Oh, your dog can sit? That's nice. This dog can sit, stay, come, back up, come again, back up again, sit again, lay down, come, stay, turn, turn again, look away, take a sneak peek, back up, get closer, back up, get closer, touch the toy but not get the toy and, oh Just Count. Like, Count Numbers. Do Math. This dog, a cattle dog named Jumpy, is mind-boggling smart. He's trained by Omar Von Muller, who trained Uggie, the dog from The Artist and Water for Elephants, and Backup from Veronica Mars (real name, Gordo).  Elsewhere in the world of dog training, these pups know how to pray before their dinner: (H/T I Love Dogs Site, Daily Picks and Flicks) »
