Jude Law filmed scenes for the upcoming film Genius in Manchester, England, on Sunday with his costars Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

Jude Law Films 'Genius'

Law, 41, was costumed for the day on set in a brown overcoat over a tan button down and patterned tie, and appeared to be sporting a dark brown wig. Law was channeling his writerly character, American author Thomas Clayton Wolfe. Firth has been tapped to play Wolfe's literary agent and major protagonist of Genius, Max Perkins. Kidman, meanwhile, will be playing American costume designer Aline Bernstein.

On Sunday, the actors were filming in Manchester's Northern Quarter, which had been turned into 1900s New York for the purposes of the film shoot. The area, which boasts old mill buildings and cobblestone streets, was adorned with old-fashioned shop fronts to complete the throwback look, reported the Daily Mirror.

Joel Edgerton Talks Thriller ‘Felony,’ ‘Exodus,’ Trials of Shooting ‘Jane Got a Gun’

18 October 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Joel Edgerton has one piece of advice to aspiring actors, it’s this: always be sure to check your inbox.

“I found an email the other day from my old agent in London, that I’d just sort of discarded because I was too busy at the time,” Edgerton recalls on a recent afternoon in New York, looking a tad professorial in full-rimmed glasses and beard. “It was this screenplay for a film by a first-time filmmaker that, if I was interested, I should consider auditioning for.” As it turned out, the filmmaker was Steve McQueen and the movie was “Hunger.”

Well, you win some and you lose some in this business, and lately Edgerton has been chalking up the wins. After back-to-back breakout performances in the Oscar-nominated “Animal Kingdom” (2010) and “Warrior” (2011), the 40-year-old Australian actor and screenwriter has been working nonstop in Hollywood, from his Navy Seal commander »

15 October 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Baz Luhrmann's new Chanel No. 5 ad starring Gisele is Everything.

Now we know why Gisele makes $128,000 a day.

And clearly, she's worth every penny.

The 34-year-old supermodel stars in Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann's new short film for Chanel's iconic No. 5 fragrance, looking more beautiful than ever opposite handsome Game of Thrones actor Michiel Huisman.

News: How Gisele Fights Negativity

The short film is particularly notable as Gisele attempts to embody the modern woman -- yes, she has a love interest in the film, but she also has a child, as well as a high-profile career in the three-minute clip. Watch the full clip below.

Luhrmann memorably directed Nicole Kidman's super-romantic Chanel No. 5 short film over a decade ago, and explained how his direction has changed to reflect the times.

These 5 Bags Are Making Us Hungry

On Monday night, The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann and his award-winning costume designer wife, Catherine Martin, celebrated with Gisele Bundchen and Karl Lagerfeld for the soon-to-be release video of Bundchen's Chanel No.5 campaign. While the fashionable crowd were busy taking selfies or posing with Chanel bags as hats, we took notice of something rarely spotted at style soirees — bagels, or in this case, a bagel bag (with faux cream cheese!) designed by Chanel. The lucky owner of the carb-filled purse (at least, for that night) was India Menuez, a New York artist, who looked like she enjoyed her delicious-looking accessory without

14 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

In December of 1967, at the height of the Vietnam War, Australian Prime Minister vanished without a trace. No warning. No clues. He was simply gone and has never been heard from since. What happened to Holt? That's been the subject of many conspiracy theories in the years since and is now the subject of an upcoming Australian short thriller titled simply Holt.The team behind this one is pretty spectacular, from Fringe star John Noble in the lead to Oscar winning cinematographer Russell Boyd, the production designer of Dark City and Daybreakers, the editor of The Great Gatsby ... this is quality from top to bottom and they're looking for a little help on Kickstarter to make it a reality.

Joel Edgerton Wants Uncle Owen to Play a Big Role in Obi Wan Spin-Off(s)

9 October 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Uncle Owen might not have been a huge part of the Star Wars universe, but he had an important role in Luke’s pre-Jedi life, in the space between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.  Joel Edgerton, who played Owen Lars in the prequel films, thinks there’s a story to be told about Owen during those years. Will it be told in the proposed Obi Wan spin-off (or spin-offs)?

Owen Lars—better known as Luke Skywalker’s cantankerous Uncle Owen in A New Hope—is not one of the most popular Star Wars characters, and his total on-screen time during the three films he appeared in was probably less than 10 minutes. However, there is someone who wants to see a lot more of him, and that’s Joel Edgerton, who played a young Owen in Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. Edgerton  thinks Owen »

Joel Edgerton Has Big Plans For Uncle Owen In Star Wars

9 October 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Joel Edgerton has forged out a pretty impressive Hollywood career for himself. The Australian thespian has appeared in the likes of Animal Kingdom, Warrior, Zero Dark Thirty and The Great Gatsby to critical acclaim. But for Star Wars fans he will always be thought of as Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.s Owen Lars. And now turns out that Edgerton has pretty big plans if Uncle Owen is included in a possible spin-off Obi-Wan movie... but only if he can be more than a "nerdy moisture farmer." Edgerton explained to ComingSoon.net that the Owen in Episode IV had "been through some shit," and it became clear that the idea of an Obi-Wan solo film might find room for Edgerton's character. As the conversation continued, the actor became more enthused, and he even declared: Okay, we.re gonna talk about this. This is a necessary addition »

Watch the Eerie David Bowie Cover From 'American Horror Story'

9 October 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's a show that features conjoined twins, a boy with lobster hands and a terrifying, murderous clown, yet the strangest part of Wednesday night's American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere came when Jessica Lange's Elsa performed a rendition of David Bowie's Hunky Dory classic "Life on Mars?" The cover was jarring for two reasons: First, that German accent, and secondly, Bowie's track was released in 1971, but the show is based in 1952 in Jupiter, Florida. So, is time travel a subplot?

Tech Support: Films like 'Interstellar' and 'Into the Woods' set for Oscar's craft races

8 October 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome back to the ninth season of Tech Support here at In Contention. The crafts coverage banner has become somewhat of a staple here at this site, as we seek to shine light upon the below-the-line artists whose crafts make our movies immeasurably richer. And over the next 10 weeks we will analyze each of the Academy's craft Oscar races: Cinematography, Costume Design, Film Editing, Makeup & Hairstyling, Original Score, Original Song, Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Visual Effects. The order will be mixed, to keep things fresh between audio and visual categories, and complement new releases and developments in the race as a whole. At this point, a brief aside on this column's title is probably warranted. Many below-the-line artists object to the phrase "technical" or "tech" to describe these categories. This is understandable. "Tech" can have an unfortunately negative connotation, particularly when used in certain circumstances in the »

Go Fly One: Ziman’s Anime Adaptation a Denuded, Unnecessary Endeavor

Those familiar with Yasuomi Umetsu’s 1998 fifty minute anime of the same name will be sorely disappointed in Ralph Ziman’s modernized update of the controversial Kite. But a faithful, live action rendition would have crossed the boundaries and limits of what defines exploitation cinema since we’re talking about an orphaned school girl sex slave assassin. A more fitting nod came from Quentin Tarantino, who culled the origin tangent of O-Ren Ishii in Kill Bill from Umetsu, in an anime sequence deemed too violent for live action. While a faithful adaptation would have seemed gratuitous, this end product is unable to elicit any kind of response at all, feeling utterly uninspired in look, tone, or content.

15 great scores from rockers turned film composers

7 October 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With "Gone Girl" in theaters, your ears are being treated to yet another untraditional feat of film music composition from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. It's their third collaboration with director David Fincher, and maybe their most intriguing. We talked to Reznor recently and hope to go even deeper on the work later in the season, but for now, let's consider the tradition his and Ross' contribution joins. From the moment sound and image collided in cinema, the entire medium was on a crash course with popular music. Soon enough, merely using pre-existing songs transitioned to filmmakers tapping musical acts, rock or otherwise, for actual score composition. The lineage is rich and intriguing and, more to the point, ever evolving (witness Jay Z's collaboration with Baz Luhrmann on "The Great Gatsby" last year). With Reznor and Ross' latest work in theaters, and with other individuals like Mark Mothersbaugh, Jonny Greenwood »

Richard Kelly Says David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' Is A "Kindred Spirit" To Stanley Kubrick's 'Eyes Wide Shut'

7 October 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The past year has seen James Franco play film critic, reviewing movies like “The Great Gatsby” and “Man Of Steel.” At the same time, The Talkhouse has made a name for itself by providing a space for artists to write about other artists, which is how the late great Lou Reed came to write about Kanye West’s Yeezus and how “Donnie Darko” director Richard Kelly has ended up writing about David Fincher’s much-discussed “Gone Girl.” Simultaneously posted on Tumblr, Kelly’s review of “Gone Girl” instead plays out as a sort of dissertation wherein Fincher’s examination (via Gillian Flynn’s amazing novel and screenplay) of a doomed marriage between incredibly flawed people is compared to another film dealing with a crumbling marriage, Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut.” In Kelly’s own words, his piece is “an epic three-part spoiler-filled 4741 word essay” and dissects everything from what Kelly sees as the common. »

Leonardo DiCaprio drops out of Steve Jobs biopic

2 October 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is now no longer up for playing Apple founder Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic for Sony. DiCaprio was attached to the film with Danny Boyle set to direct.

The two had previously worked together on The Beach back in 2000. DiCaprio was in talks to star in the project after shooting The Revenant which is due to start production this week, however the actor has bowed out of the project completely.

In recent interviews DiCaprio has stated that he wanted a break for a while, having shot Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street consecutively. Having taken this break and starting work on The Revenant, it would appear that DiCaprio does not want to shoot films back to back again.

Following DiCaprio’s departure, Sony is now said to be looking at Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper for the role of Steve Jobs. »

Leonardo DiCaprio Exits Steve Jobs Biopic; Wishlist Now Includes Ben Affleck and Matt Damon

2 October 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It appears that Leonardo DiCaprio and his The Beach director Danny Boyle won’t be reteaming after all.  It had looked like the duo might be working together again on Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic, as news broke earlier this year that DiCaprio was being eyed to star as Boyle entered the director’s chair.  The project has been a high priority for Sony since they received Aaron Sorkin’s script, and early on they entered preliminary conversations with David Fincher about taking the helm.  That prospect didn’t work out and Boyle subsequently signed on, and the hope was that this would be DiCaprio’s next project after he wraps The Revenant with director Alejandro González Iñárritu.  However, word comes today that DiCaprio has opted to bow out of the project altogether.  More after the jump. Per THR, DiCaprio has decided against taking on the role of Steve Jobs in Sony’s untitled biopic, »

Should You Read Gone Girl Before Seeing The Movie? We Ask The Cast

2 October 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Should you read a book before checking out a feature-film adaptation? This usually is an easier question to answer. If you want to see how Hollywood did on The Hunger Games or Divergent, grab the Ya novel and devour it before the show. Curious about Baz Luhrmann.s updated take on The Great Gatsby? Spend some time chewing over F. Scott Fitzgerald.s American classic. That.s a no-brainer. Gone Girl is a little more complicated. The initial joy of Gillian Flynn.s page-turner lies in unearthing the mysteries swirling around the missing Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike), and the suspicions leveled at her husband, Nick (Ben Affleck). Immediately following our screening at the New York Film Festival, conversations pertaining to Davd Fincher.s film splintered into factions of those who.d read the book (and knew its secrets) and those who went on the ride for the first time via »
