A television adaptation of the classic John le Carré novel, it will star Tom Hiddleston as an ex-soldier named Jonathan Pine, who is recruited for the British intelligence service by the mysterious Burr (Olivia Colman).

It’s kind of ironic, but if you want a sense of the stifling, dull life young Emma Bovary desires escape from, in her early-18th-century rural French countryside, this rendition of Gustave Flaubert’s groundbreaking novel Madame Bovary does a pretty good — if unintentional — job of it. Not even the awesome Mia Wasikowska (Maps to the Stars) can save this tepid and charmless adaptation, from director Sophie Barthes, which is a real shame, because it’s a wonderful classic tale of how the things the world told (and still tells) women we should be happy with — a reliable husband; a nice home — simply »

At first glance it may seem Australian cinemagoers are keener to see Entourage than audiences in the Us.
The feature spin-off of the series that ran for eight seasons on HBO opened at No. 1 in Australia, fetching $3.4 million last weekend and almost $4.1 million with previews.
Contrast that with the Us where the film starring Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara,. Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven entered in fourth spot with a lousy $US10.2 million in three days and $17.6 million since the launch last Wednesday.

Jake Gyllenhaal gets creepy as a freelance crime journalist in L.A. in this highly acclaimed thriller. Catch it on Netflix starting June 10.

Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper has become a huge Hollywood star in recent years. Unlike many top actors, who seem to burst onto the scene, Cooper slipped into our collective consciousness over time, moving from minor TV roles to cult movies until he was a bona fide blockbuster.
The early years
As an unknown actor, Cooper made his television debut in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance in Sex and the City in 1999. His first significant role was opposite Jennifer Garner in Jj Abrams's Alias from 2001-06, not as Sydney Bristow's secret agent love interest but as her mild-mannered and slightly awkward reporter friend.
Summer’s settling in, the kids are out of school, so how about a vacation? Or at least a visit to the multiplex to take in a very popular vacation spot. And you wouldn’t be leaving the good ole’ Us of A! I’m referring to our 50th state, Hawaii. So who will you be traveling with on this cinematic stay in the Pacific’s paradise? Well, it’s a gaggle of true, “big deal” Hollywood actors and actresses. So, was it the mild temps and gorgeous beaches that lured this impressive cast here? It didn’t hurt, but the main lure may have been the chance to work with the celebrated author/director Cameron Crowe. After leaving the pages of Rolling Stone magazine, he contributed the script for the seminal 80’s teen comedy/drama Fast Times At Ridgemont High. When he took on directing in 1989, he made a »

There may be no more reliable leading actor working in Hollywood today than Bradley Cooper, who recently led Clint Eastwood's excellent, woefully misunderstood mega-hit American Sniper and provided the voice of Rocket Raccoon in some movie called Guardians of the Galaxy. This year, he's already been seen in the slightly underrated Serena and will lead both Cameron Crowe's Aloha and David O. Russell's Joy. On top of this, he will be co-starring in Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and, as Deadline has reported, will be featured in a recurring supporting role in CBS's full-series adaptation of Limitless, the 2011 supernatural thriller starring Cooper. As reported awhile ago, Cooper will be producing the series as well, which casts relative newcomer Jake McDormand as Brian Finch, a young man who discovers and starts taking Nzt, a drug that unlocks untapped potential in the human brain.

If you thought Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin were over, apparently it's time to rethink what's really happening between the two stars. Despite the fact that they haven't been seen together since Harry Styles's 21st birthday party in late January, reports claim the couple is still going strong. According to People, Jennifer and Chris shared a romantic Easter weekend together in NYC. The duo's relaxed Saturday included an afternoon at Central Park, where they dined at the famed Tavern on the Green and visited Strawberry Fields, the John Lennon memorial. A source revealed, "Because their table was facing the courtyard and was against the glass wall, people pretended to be taking selfies so they could be seen in the background. It was very funny." The couple also shared cute interactions; according to Us Weekly, a source said they "were whispering to each other and giggling." After the meal and »
Jennifer Lawrence's adventures in NYC continue. On Sunday, the actress kept it casual while stepping out in the Big Apple. Her downtime comes just one week after she got Bradley Cooper laughing super hard at an event for their movie Serena. Elsewhere, Kerry Washington and Gina Rodriguez paired up for a sweet moment, Josh Duhamel channeled his inner tough guy on set, and Kim Kardashian showed off her physique while stretching it out.

Home, the newest feature from animation studio Dreamworks, won the top spot in its opening weekend, beating out competitors with a $54 million opening. The total marks Dreamworks’ first box office top finish since Mr. Peabody and Sherman achieved the feat a year ago, and the studio’s first opening weekend victory since 2013’s The Croods. The PG-rated Home was joined at the top by fellow new opener and R-rated Get Hard, as the Will Ferrell-Kevin Hart comedy took in $34.6 million in its opening weekend, good for a second place finish.
Among the rest of the films, the other big entry was the indie horror film It Follows. Distributors’ plans to forego a VOD opening this weekend in favour of taking the film to a wide theatrical release instead paid off, as the movie made $4 million in its expansion, finishing in fifth place on the chart with a $4 million total. »

The box office giveth and the box office taketh away, but this weekend was bountiful for four different movies. DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox's "Home" took the top spot with $54 million. That's the biggest debut for Dwa since "Madagascar 3: Europe Most Want" in 2012 and the first real smash opening for the company since Fox became their distribution and marketing partner. This is a huge win for DreamWorks since "Home" is their only major release in 2015. The family film also earned an A Cinemascore rating which means it should have good word of mouth with family audiences over the coming weeks. Globally, the $135 million budgeted flick has earned $101.5 million so far. It's one of Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell's worst reviewed films of their careers, but audiences didn't seem to care as "Get Hard" took the second spot with $34.6 million. The Warner Bros. release is actually Ferrell's biggest »

Written for the screen by Christopher Kyle
Directed by Susanne Bier
USA/France/Czech Republic, 2014
Based on a bestselling novel by Ron Rash, Serena, as brought to the screen by director Susanne Bier and screenwriter Christopher Kyle, feels like a husk of an adaptation even to one completely unfamiliar with the source material. It’s the sort of film that, at least in the form prepped for theatrical release, makes one inclined to believe its makers have completely lost the ability to tell a story. And it’s not like that ever seems like a deliberate stylistic choice, with Bier actually focusing on some thematic flourish off on the sidelines. Serena is always focused on its plot. Its perpetually rushed, choppily told, borderline confusing plot.
Part of the trouble in the telling is that the film’s a tonal mess. In her native Denmark, and with American cinema forays »
