Australian Actress Natalie Mendoza Describes Harvey Weinstein Groping Incident

Australian Actress Natalie Mendoza Describes Harvey Weinstein Groping Incident
Australian actress Natalie Mendoza has come forth as one of the latest accusers of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Australia’s Herald Sun reports that, on her Facebook page, Mendoza refers to a groping incident around 2002, when she was shooting “The Great Raid,” the first of three films she had under a three-picture deal with Miramax.

“I might have told Mr W mid-script ‘meeting’ after he sent his assistant out that I’d punch him if he didn’t take his hands off me,” she wrote.

“Shook all the way home but high-fived myself for knowing my self worth in my early 20s.

“I knew my first film would be my last after that and I was more than Ok about it.”

In a second post, she added: “I was so naive I did not realise it was a set-up. I managed to escape with my integrity intact. I was shaken and dazed but Ok.”

‘Insidious: Chapter 2′ is a dreadful, tension-free mess and an unnecessary continuation

  • SoundOnSight
Insidious: Chapter 2

Written by Leigh Whannell

Directed by James Wan

USA, 2013

Insidious: Chapter 2 joins the less than stellar ranks of films like The Descent: Part 2 in being an immediate continuation of a horror film that, though ending with a looming threat, did not call for a sequel. After a prologue set in 1986, the film kicks off on the night its predecessor ended, with Rose Byrne’s Renai Lambert questioned by police over the supernatural events that led to the murder by strangulation of psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye). Insidious’ final moments saw Elise confront the strange behaviour of Renai’s husband Josh (Patrick Wilson), the man now seemingly possessed by the spirit of a black-veiled bride thanks to the Poltergeist meets A Nightmare on Elm Street mishaps that encompassed the film’s third act. Chapter 2 sees the Lambert family, as well as new Elise stand-in Carl (Steve Coulter

A Night in the Woods (2011) Movie Review

More “Blair Witch Project” style shenanigans arrive in the form of “A Night in the Woods”, a British effort which could at least never be accused of not living up to its title, following a trio of the usual types wandering around the moors and forests of Northern England. The found footage film was directed by Richard Parry (“South West 9”), who previously worked as a conflict zone cameraman, helming various documentaries in Iraq and Afghanistan, with cinematography by Simon Dennis (“The Sweeney”), and the international cast of American star Scoot McNairy (“Monsters”), Australian actress Anna Skellern (“The Descent: Part 2”) and up and coming British actor Andrew Hawley (“Snow White And The Huntsman”).

The very recognisable plot follows an American called Brody (Scoot McNairy), his girlfriend Kerry (Anna Skellern

Add in filming for The Hangover 3 and Cooper is a very busy boy. It doesn’t seem as if he’ll be slowing down any time soon, as news has surfaced that he is in talks to star in crime thriller Bad Blood And Trouble.

[Interview] Daniel Radcliffe Talks Moving Away From 'Harry Potter' And Lawyering Up For 'The Woman In Black'

[Interview] Daniel Radcliffe Talks Moving Away From 'Harry Potter' And Lawyering Up For  'The Woman In Black'
On February 3 CBS Films releases Hammer's The Woman In Black, an old fashioned ghost story starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter 1-7.2) and Ciaran Hinds (There Will Be Blood). With a screenplay by Jane Goldman (X Men: First Class, Kick Ass), based on the novel by Susan Hill, the film is directed by James Watkins who helmed Eden Lake in addition to writing The Descent: Part 2. It's a big moment for Daniel Radcliffe, embarking on his first major leading role since the end of the triumphant Harry Potter franchise. It's an interesting choice to attempt to play someone so far removed - "lawyer" isn't as synonymous with youth as say, "boy wizard" - from his signature character. I had a chance to hop on the phone with him recently and talk about the process behind the transformation.

Casting News and More on ABC's Once Upon a Time

A good bit of casting news for ABC's upcoming "Once Upon a Time" from "Lost" executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz has come in over the past several days so we thought we'd just condense everything into one easy-to-find location.

Heading up the prospective new series, which is set in the small town of Storybrook, where the magic and mystery of fairy tales may be real, is Jennifer Morrison ("House M.D.") as Anna, “a child of two fairy tale characters who is fated to save everyone from [a] curse.” As Morrison explained it to TVLine, “Basically, it’s as if every fairy tale character ever written is real and actually exists, but they’ve been cursed and they don’t know their true identities.” (For example, Ginnifer Goodwin ("Big Love") plays Snow White, while Lana Parrilla ("Swingtown") is the Evil Queen.) “They are living in our reality not knowing who they truly are.
