‘The Roommate’ Is On The Top Position for Weekend Box Office

6 February 2011 11:40 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As the country pumped up for Superbowl weekend, “The Roommate” had a successful weekend opening with $15.3 million despite being tackled and slammed by critics. The film has Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly) assigned with psychotic killer Rebecca (Leighton Meester) as a roommate. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the film earned a 9 percent critics rating, which is the third lowest of the year—barely above “Frankie and Alice” and “Waiting for Forever.” The other opening film was James Cameron’s “Sanctum,” which swam to the second position with $9.2 million. The thriller is about a group of cave divers seeking an exit after mother nature trapped them inside the earth. For the rest of the top five, “No Strings Attached” earned $8.4 million, a drop of 37.4 percent from the previous weekend to the third position. Oscar nominated “The King’s Speech” is still going very strong in fourth place with $8.3 million, a decrease of 24.9 percent. »

If you were waiting for Halle Berry's psychological drama Frankie and Alice -- about a young mixed-race woman struggling against her own racist alter-personality -- to hit theatres yesterday, February 4, you're going to have to wait a little bit longer. Long before Berry's highly publicized custody battle with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry became news, the movie's distribution company Freestyle Releasing announced that the release date had been moved »

Film Review: Halle Berry Expresses All Roles in ‘Frankie and Alice’

4 February 2011 6:23 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The stunning looks of Halle Berry is always the lead whenever the entertainment media considers her. But in “Frankie and Alice,” she reminds us of why her career continues to flourish and why she is a Best Actress Oscar winner.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Berry plays a complex character ridden with the psychological burden of multiple personalities. Based on a true story, this is the type of situation that as a film could be exploited or trivialized. To the credit of the production and especially Halle Berry, it’s handled with sensitivity.

Berry portrays Frankie, a stripper in Los Angeles in 1973. There is something odd about her, as she is liable to pontificate on several bizarre angles of the profession. After picking up a guy named Cliff (Adrian Holmes), she has a mental breakdown in his presence. She switches from the personality of a streetwise stripper to a bigoted society lady, blathering »

Interview: Actor Adrian Holmes Expands Range in ‘Frankie and Alice’

3 February 2011 5:58 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Breaking through to the next level of name recognition in the acting field is the goal of all performers. Adrian Holmes, currently featured in the Halle Berry film, “Frankie and Alice,” is currently making his breakout move.

Holmes has been a professional actor since the early 1990s, working mostly out of the production centers in his native Canada. From there he has built a film and TV resume which includes “Smallville,” in which he played a Kryptonian named Basqat, to his roles in the Halle Berry film and the soon-to-be-released “Red Riding Hood.”

He’s Super, Man: Adrian Holmes Strikes a Pose

Adrian Holmes participated in a phone interview with HollywoodChicago.com, in anticipation of the Chicago release of Frankie and Alice. He spoke about the life of the journeyman actor, and his gratitude towards this part of his career.

Their Best Role: Stellan Skarsgård in 'Insomnia'

2 February 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Features, Cinematical

Probably the most renowned Swedish actor working onscreen today (next to the venerable Max von Sydow), Stellan Skarsgård is a reliably solid presence in any film, big or small. And he's done it all, from obscure, harsh dramas like Juanita Wilson's recent 'As If I Am Not There' to big, fluffy musicals like 'Mamma Mia!' (granted, that was his only fluffy musical). A major part of the American movie-going public knows him as Bootstrap Bill from the last two 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies; a smaller segment recognizes him mainly from Lars von Trier films, and then there's Verner Vollstedt, his crazily overbearing director character on HBO's 'Entourage.'

Opening Friday is 'Frankie and Alice,' in which Skarsgård plays a psychiatrist to Halle Berry's multiple personalities. Most recently he gave a wonderful performance in dark Norwegian (redundant?) crime »

Early Monday (January 31), it was announced that Halle Berry had dropped out of the upcoming "Valentine's Day" sequel "New Year's Eve" and would be replaced by Katherine Heigl. Hours later, Berry's rep told People magazine that the Oscar winner's departure is due to Berry's upcoming custody battle with model ex Gabriel Aubry over their 2-year-old daughter, Nahla.

"Halle has serious concerns for her daughter's well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her," her rep told the magazine. "She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter's father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no »

Halle Berry Wears Short Shorts For a Dentist Trip With Hot Olivier

28 January 2011 2:04 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Halle Berry's denim cutoffs were so short her pockets were peeking out the bottom during a trip to a dentist's office in La with Olivier Martinez yesterday. The actress has been taking care of important business this week, including checking out potential schools for Nahla in between romantic outings with Olivier. The happy couple has been enjoying each other's company at art shows and on his 45th birthday. Halle didn't score an Oscar nomination for her work in Frankie and Alice, though she will be there as a presenter during the big show. The past best actress winner could have more award season fodder added to her resume since Aretha Franklin is adamant that Halle should portray her in a biopic despite Berry's protests that she can't sing.

25 January 2011 7:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who's more likely to win for Best Actor, Colin Firth or James Franco?

Per Bookmaker.com, the odds go like this: Firth at 91 percent, Franco 19, Jesse Eisenberg 18, Jeff Bridges 16, and Javier Bardem at 19 percent. I've been fielding a ton of questions after the Academy Award nominations today.

I think everybody woke up at 8:30 eager for one thing today: using the bathroom.  But After that, I'm sure they opened up their computers and checked out the Oscar nominations, right?  So how well did we at Tmp do on our predictions?  Any major upsets?  Well, you can find out after the jump.

And we're after the jump!  Here's the complete list of nominees:

Best Picture

Winter’s Bone

True Grit

Toy Story 3

The Social Network

127 Hours

The King’s Speech

The Kids Are All Right

Inception

The Fighter

Black Swan

Quick Commentary: Yup, no surprises here.  In fact, we predicted all of these pretty much correct.  Well, except The Town. But to be honest...it was only because I forgot about True Grit. What a glaring oversight, me.  Come on!  Still, super pleased Toy Story 3 got the nom it deserved.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez Are the Picture of Happiness

22 January 2011 9:16 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez looked like they were sharing a private joke leaving an La art show yesterday. Olivier's been in town for the past week since Halle and Nahla welcomed him to the West Coast with a special happy birthday surprise. The pair stepped out for a lunch date before the Golden Globes Awards, though Halle decided to walk the red carpet solo in a short and sleek black gown. The best actress nominee didn't take home an award for her role in Frankie and Alice but she was all smiles arriving at the star studded afterparties. Her relationship with Olivier seems to going strong as is her ex-husband's, Eric Benet, who recently announced his engagement to girlfriend of three years, Manuela Testolini. View Slideshow › »

Interview: Hailee Steinfeld, A “True”-Ly Great Young Actress

19 January 2011 9:10 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

On Saturday afternoon, I had the opportunity to spend a half-hour at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills with Hailee Steinfeld, the 14-year-old best supporting actress SAG Award nominee/Oscar hopeful for her performance as a young firebrand in Ethan Coen and Joel Coen’s “True Grit” (Paramount, 12/22, PG-13, trailer), which ranks among the greatest big screen debuts of all-time. The night before we met, we both attended the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, which are determined by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, of which I am a member. I had voted for Steinfeld in the category of “best young actor/actress,” and sure enough she won, prompting a loud ovation from the audience and a charming speech from her. When I walked into her hotel suite for our interview the next day, she was still on a high from the excitement of attending her first awards show — and winning her »

Interview: Nicole Kidman Breaks Down Her Toughest Role–Herself

19 January 2011 2:17 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Nicole Kidman is a 43-year-old wife and mother of four who also happens to be one of the biggest movie stars in the world and one of the most respected actresses of her generation. Therefore, as you can imagine, it was a great privilege and thrill for me to be granted a half-hour one-on-one interview with her last Saturday — the day between the Critics Choice and the Golden Globe awards, both of which she attended as a best actress nominee for her performance as a mother grieving over the death of her child in the critically-acclaimed low-budget indie “Rabbit Hole” (Lionsgate, 12/17, PG-13, trailer) — and pick her brain about a wide-range of topics. We met on the second floor of Siren Studios, a sparsely decorated building used by professional photographers for photoshoots like the one that Kidman was to be a subject of following our conversation.

Golden Globes: Jim Parsons Wins But Other Sci-Fi Noms Go Home Empty-Handed

18 January 2011 4:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

This past Sunday night’s 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards was a fantastic night for The Social Network, Glee, and The Kids are Alright, but aside from the notable win by Jim Parsons for Best Actor in a TV Series – Comedy or Musical, sci-fi / fantasy nominees went home empty-handed.

How could Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Red, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, and AMC’s The Walking Dead not have won anything? The Hollywood Foreign Press Association definitely had their eyes on more reality-based entertainment as exhibited by the number of The Social Network wins and Al Pacino and Claire Danes’ wins for their portrayals of suicide doctor Jack Kevorkian and autistic, livestock scientist Temple Grandin respectively.

Show host, Ricky Gervais’ mean-spirited style of hosting “pushed the envelope and occasionally went too far.” Aside from gape-mouthed “wow, did Ricky really just say that?” moments throughout the show, it was still »
