8 Stars Toronto Could Do Without at Tiff

17 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no secret that stars aren't always on their best behaviour at all times. After all, when the whole world worships you, it can pretty easily go straight to your head. It can make you believe that the same rules of etiquette (and even the law) don't apply to you. You're above it.

We've all heard whispers of Mariah's demands for white furniture, Beyonce's insistence on brand-new toilet seats and Britney's strict orders for Cheetos and cheeseburgers. But diva behavior isn't limited to divas. A handful of actors have infamously worn out their welcome on the Toronto Film Festival's red carpet with their diva antics and entitled behaviour. And hey, we're Canadian; that kind of attitude doesn't really fly at the film festival renowned for bringing stars and regular folks together to bask in a mutual love of cinema.

While most stars are nothing but gracious at Tiff, there are a few whose ridiculous demands, »

28 August 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Lately the charming British actor Hugh Grant has taken on some out of the ordinary roles including an eclectic turn in Cloud Atlas and some kind of superior role in next year's The Man from U.N.C.L.E., but he had time to get back into his usual romantic comedy territory across the pond. The Rewrite reunites Grant with Two Weeks Notice and Music & Lyrics writer/director Marc Lawrence, and as the first trailer indicates, he's playing a once-thriving screenwriter who is now broke, divorced and desperate. So he takes a gig teaching screenwriting at a small town university. And as you might have guessed, he finds love. Watch!

28 August 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even as he takes roles in "Cloud Atlas" and the upcoming "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," Hugh Grant is sandwiching those films with the kind of project which he has much experience: romantic comedy. The first trailer for "The Rewrite" is here, and its familiar fare in new packaging. Co-starring Marisa TomeiAllison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Chris Elliott, and Bella Heathcote, the movie reteams Grant with his "Music And Lyrics" and "Two Weeks Notice" writer/director Marc Lawrence, this time for a romance set in the world of, uh, screenwriting. Here's the official synopsis:  Once upon a time, screenwriter Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant) was on top of the world – a Golden Globe Award and a hit movie to his name, a beautiful wife and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of wit and charm. But that was fifteen years ago: now, he’s divorced, broke, approaching fifty and hasn’t written a hit film in years. »

Kate Bush Returns To The Stage For The First Time in 35 Years

26 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Kate Bush, most famous for her songs “Running Up That Hill” and “Don’t Give Up,” had her first live performance in 35 years on Tuesday to unanimously positive reviews.

#KateBush: Singer Returns After 35 Years

Bush put on a dramatic stage show at London’s Eventim Apollo venue—involving surrealist sets, monsters and paper airplanes. David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas and the upcoming The Bone Clocks, who is known for his unreal concepts and imagery, helped Bush develop the visuals and themes apparently in the show.

Her 35-year absence has long been contributed to several factors. She wanted to tend to her then-young family, she was a known perfectionist who wanted everything just right, and early on in her (first and final) tour in 1979, her lighting director fell to his death.

In the United States, Bush was known for her single “Running Up That Hill” which received a resurgence in »

Blu-ray Review: 'Bound'

19 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★A lot has changed since Bound was released in 1996. The Wachowskis went from hotshot upstarts to paradigm-shifting savants with The Matrix (1999), a film that has irrevocably altered the form of the action movie. Its sequels, The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003) were met with rather less rapturous response, while Speed Racer (2008) and Cloud Atlas (2012) split critical opinion right down the middle. As the critical tide gradually turns to a re-evaluation and recognition of the later Wachowski achievements, the time seems more than ripe to return to their first movie. Thankfully, a brand new special features-packed release from Arrow Video does just that.

Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris And Andy Garcia In Talks For Geostorm

18 August 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The absolutely bonkers-sounding Geostorm may be about to transform from a Gerard Butler sci-fi actioner into a star-studded sci-fi blockbuster. Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind) and Andy Garcia (The Godfather Part III) are reportedly all in talks for major roles in the pic, which aims to blend elements of a political thriller and an effects-heavy disaster epic.

Butler stars as a gruff but likable satellite designer who, after the world’s climate-controlling satellites malfunction, is forced to team up with his estranged brother (Sturgess) to save the world from a man-made storm of epic proportions. However, as the designer heads into space, his brother discovers a nefarious plot to assassinate the president and plunge the world into even deeper chaos.

If they come aboard, Cornish will play a Secret Service agent, the girlfriend of Butler’s protagonist. Harris will play the secretary of »

Plans Unveiled for $66.8 Million Film Studio in Scotland

15 August 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Plans were unveiled Friday for a £40 million ($66.8 million) film and TV production facility, Pentland Studios, on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city.

Among Hollywood productions to shoot recently in Scotland was season one of Starz’s sci-fi fantasy series “Outlander,” which employed around 400 crew members. Bringing the show to Scotland led to the creation of a 140,000 sq. ft. production facility at Cumbernauld, but there is an urgent need for more production facilities. The extension of the U.K. film tax credit to big-budget TV drama series has seen a surge in Hollywood projects coming to the U.K., and underscored the lack of studio space there.

The 29-acre development at Straiton, where Pentland Studios would sit, includes hotel, leisure and retail facilities. The first four film stages are scheduled to open for business in 2017, with »
