Emily Blunt danced for joy after Meryl Streep praise

19 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Emily Blunt did ''a little dance'' after receiving a compliment from Meryl Streep. The 31-year-old actress was described as ''best young actress I've worked with in some time, perhaps ever'' by the 65-year-old star after appearing alongside her in 2006 movie 'Devil Wears Prada', and the brunette beauty still cannot believe the Hollywood legend held her in such high regard. She said: ''I still die [over that compliment]. It was a little bit mind-blowing. ''I think my hair blew back, actually, when I read it. You do a little dance and then you realise you've got to try and live up to it.'' Emily stars opposite Meryl again in her latest movie, musical fantasy film 'Into the Woods', and while the star admitted the role is the ''best part'' she's ever landed, the 'Looper' actress wishes she was better at singing. She explained: ''Well, obviously I still think I »

Roadshow Films Buys 33% Stake in FilmNation

16 December 2014 6:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roadshow Films has bought a 33% stake in independent production-sales banner FilmNation, enabling expansion of the FilmNation development and production slate.

Six-year-old FilmNation focuses on platform releases with the potential to go wide in the $12-$30 million budget range such as “Mud,” “A Most Wanted Man” and “The Imitation Game.”

In a filing to the Australian Stock Exchange, Roadshow Films parent Village Roadshow Limited said that the $18 million investment would give it ownership of a third of FilmNation.

The first two movies scheduled to begin production next year under the new financing structure are “The Founder” with John Lee Hancock (“The Blind Side”) directing a biopic of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc; and “The Good House,” starring Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro and based on Ann Leary’s book.

FilmNation will also begin production in May of “Story Of Your Life,” starring Amy Adams with Denis Villeneuve directing.

More Leaks Reveal Reported Plans Around ‘Star Wars’ Episodes 8 & 9

14 December 2014 10:23 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Now this is going to get even uglier. It’s one thing for Sony leaks to reveal Sony Pictures information, but the vultures digging through every line of email are now turning over information from Sony execs discussing other studios' films and unintentionally revealing their rivals’ plans. As if it’s not bad enough for Amy Pascal and President of Production for Columbia Pictures Mike De Luca—the former seemingly revealed/spoiled the info of who is directing Warner Bros.’ “Aquaman” film with information that surfaced today. Now they’re going to inadvertently piss off the ultra-secretive Kathleen Kennedy and LucasFilm because some of their future plans may have been unveiled too. Spoilers of course, but keep in mind this is secondhand information from a producer who is not working on these films, so who’s to say if it’s 100% accurate. “Looper” director Rian Johnson (who is also about »

9 December 2014 1:11 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the brand new trailer for next summer’s disaster-suspense film San Andreas.

The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Art Parkinson and Paul Giamatti.

Shot on location in The Gold Coast and Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and in Los Angeles and San Francisco, San Andreas is slated to open in theatres in both 3D and 2D format on Friday, May 29, 2015.

This isn’t the first film where Southern California has been destroyed on the silver screen. San Francisco (1936) is based on the April 18, 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Directed by Woody Van Dyke, the drama stars Clark Gable, Jeanette MacDonald, and Spencer Tracy.

Airport originated the 1970s disaster film genre and audiences were deluged with a series of movies including the original Earthquake (1974). These films always included a huge cast, where many of the actors usually perished by the climax. »

Bruce Willis' latest sci-fi film, Vice, due next month

1 December 2014 10:51 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bruce Willis and Thomas Jane star in Vice, which lands in the Us next month. Poster and details right here...

Even though it feels like it's been a while since Bruce Willis put his back into a film, his track record when it comes to science fiction is really rather good. In fact, it's perhaps no coincidence that his last really impressive feature was Rian Johnson's Looper.

Anyway, he's giving science fiction another go, as he filmed the upcoming movie Vice. This one is directed by Brian A Miller (who previously directed Willis in The Prince. Nope, us neither). Miler is in post-production on the film right now, and it co-stars Thomas Jane and Ambyr Childers.

The plot? Willis plays a man called Julian who has designed Vice, described in the synopsis as the "ultimate resort", one where "anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, »

Emily Blunt: Every day someone tells me they love 'Edge of Tomorrow'

28 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ladies and gentlemen, Emily Blunt can sing. Like almost of all of her co-stars in Rob Marshall's "Into The Woods," she proves that not only does she have a lovely singing voice, but that she can pull off Sondheim as well. The film hits theaters on Christmas Day and will wrap up another whirlwind year for Blunt. She gave birth to her first daughter in February, promoted the critically acclaimed "Edge of Tomorrow" for most of May and June (her first major action role), filmed the new Denis Villeneuve drama "Sicario" alongside Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin immediately afterward and is now in the middle of a long publicly (and awards) tour for "Woods." Blunt plays the role of The Baker's Wife in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Tony Award-winning musical and, along with the Baker (played by James Corden), her character helps connect the different Grimm »

Gather round, you ne'er-do-wells, for another hearty helping of TV scoop!

It's the Tube Talk Q&A - providing you with the latest telly teasers and air-dates on a (mostly) weekly basis.

There is a rumour going round Channel 5 have picked up second run rights to Extant starring Halle Berry - can you find out if this is true?

Yes we can, Edward Perkins and no, it's not - someone has picked up the linear broadcast rights to Extant, but it ain't Channel 5.

The sci-fi thriller - which made its UK debut exclusively via Amazon Prime Instant Video - has in fact been acquired by Syfy UK.

The ten-parter - which also stars ER's Goran Visnjic, Looper child star Pierce Gagnon and Meryl Streep's wonderfully-named daughter Grace Gummer - will premiere in January 2015.

Yes there will, Pipkin3 - after an agonising 8-month wait (eight months! »

Is Director A.J. Edwards Making a Mace Windu 'Star Wars' Spin-Off?

18 November 2014 7:55 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As of now, there are already two Star Wars spin-off films lined up after Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives next December. Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is already signed to direct the first one, arriving just one year after Episode VII, and Lucasfilm has already lined up Chronicle director Josh Trank to be at the helm of whatever spin-off will follow Episode VIII from Looper director Rian Johnson. However, is there a chance that another spin-off is in the works? The Better Angels director A.J. Edwards partook in a Reddit Ama and was asked about potential involvement in the revival of the Star Wars franchise. Read on! Now we're pretty sure that Edwards was just joking around (sarcasm is hard to detect in text, especially online), but the director responded, "Talking about it, not able to say a lot yet. It will focus on Mace Windu." Aside from the »

15 November 2014 2:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The actress is reportedly in talks to join Open Road's untitled drama based on Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden, from director Oliver Stone ("JFK," "Platoon," "Savages") Woodley is in talks to play the girlfriend of Snowden, who will be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("The Dark Knight Rises," "Looper") according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Can ‘Dumb And Dumber To’ Outwit Holdovers?: Box Office Preview

13 November 2014 11:27 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Dumb And Dumber was one of those creatures that can exist only in a Hollywood ecosystem. It made a pretty healthy splash 20 years ago, opening at No. 1 with $16.4M on its way to a $127.2M domestic take. But getting stars Jim Carrey (then just coming off The Mask) and Jeff Daniels (who had wrapped Speed) reunited proved a logistical hurdle that couldn’t be leapt, and the stars went on their separate ascensions, seemingly leaving a franchise stillborn. But a DVD cult behemoth was spawned in their absence, and, two decades later, the long-awaited (by Farrelly fanatics, at least) reunion Dumb And Dumber To could bring the men to a place they haven’t seen in years: atop the box office.

Ddt will graduate on 3,152 screens this weekend and, given the success of raunchy comedy lately, seems likely to capture box office with a haul of $30 million-$32 million. The $40M movie, »

Star Wars: Episode VIII confirmed for Pinewood shoot

10 November 2014 10:51 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII will follow The Force Awakens and shoot at Pinewood in the UK...

You'd hardly call this story a radical surprise, but it's now been confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VIII will be shooting at Pinewood Studios in the UK.

That's where Star Wars: The Force Awakens (nee Star Wars: Episode VII) has been based, and that film finished production last week. Given that Ilm has opened up a London office, partly off the back of the clutch of Star Wars films expected to shoot in the UK, we suspect the bulk of the upcoming movies will have their production based in Britain. That's certainly been the word on them thus far.

Star Wars: Episode VIII hands things over from director Jj Abrams to Looper's Rian Johnson, then.

Set for release in 2017, the confirmation that Star Wars: Episode VIII would be »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: 'Interstellar' rage

10 November 2014 3:16 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Christopher Nolan made Memento, but he also made The Dark Knight Rises. Great filmmakers can make bad movies: This is not a particularly complicated equation. And Nolan's new space melodrama Interstellar is not a particularly complicated movie. The science is elaborate and insane, but the emotional stakes are simple: Father loves daughter, father saves humanity. But Nolan is one of our plottiest filmmakers. (Most films have three acts; Nolan's movies usually have at least six, usually out of order and/or overlapping.) I attempted to explain the plot of Interstellar, but even I ran up against some impenetrable cosmo-logic.

‘Star Wars’ Returning To Pinewood For ‘Episode VIII’

10 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The force is strong in Pinewood. The eighth instalment of the Star Wars franchise will shoot at the UK’s Pinewood Studios, Pinewood Shepperton chief exec Ivan Dunleavy confirmed in a far-reaching keynote address at the annual conference of the Confederation of British Industry.

The confab, which brings together employers from all sections of the British economy, had the added benefit of a guest appearance from R2-D2 on \stage with Dunleavy for the news. Filming on the seventh film in the series, the newly titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens, only recently finished at Pinewood.

In a bullish address on the importance of the creative industries to the British economy, Dunleavy noted they are worth more than £70 billion ($111 billion) a year to the U.K. economy, employing 2 million-plus people, and was growing much faster than any other part of the U.K. economy — up by nearly 10% in 2012.
