Will Smith talks Jared Leto’s “insane” Joker performance in Suicide Squad

7 October 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday saw the first image of Matthew McConaughey’s radical body transformation in his next film Gold. Not to be outdone, his Dallas Buyers Club co-star Jared Leto has undergone a similar appearance overhaul to play the Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Will Smith – who stars alongside Leto as Floyd ‘Deadshot’ Lawton – spoke how seriously the actor took the role.

“[Suicide Squad] is insane. I’ve never actually met Jared Leto. We worked together for 6 months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be ‘Hey, Jared. What’s up?’ He was all in on the Joker.”

This confirms reports that Leto stayed in character all the way through filming Suicide Squad, with the actor at one point sending co-star Margot Robbie a live rat »

29 September 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Back in 2011, he same red-haired woman seemed to be in every movie you saw. That was Jessica Chastain who by year's end had racked up six roles on her resume -- “Coriolanus,” “The Help,"  “Take Shelter,” “Texas Killing Fields.” “The Tree of Life” and “Wilde Salome,” The buzz was so hot for her that she landed a Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for “The Help." She may have lost that race to co-star Octavia Spencer, but a star was born nonetheless. This year another fresh-faced ingenue has arrived in town by the name of Alicia Vikander. -Break- Dish the Oscars with Hollywood insiders in our red-hot forums Over the past several years, this Swedish import has been slowly building her profile with small roles in “A Royal Wedding” (2012), “Anna Karenina” (2012), and “The Fifth Estate” (2013).

Evans and Leto Both Checking Out “The Girl on the Train”

29 September 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The latest NY Times Bestselling novel to be creating a lot of Hollywood buzz is Paula HawkinsThe Girl on the Train. Major female leads have already been cast with Emily Blunt (The Edge of Tomorrow) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation). Now insiders are reporting that two Hollywood actors from competing comic universes may be circling the project.

Chris Evans (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Jared Leto (forthcoming Suicide Squad) are apparently both considering roles in film. It’s unclear at this point if Evans and Leto are considering the same role or two different ones. The addition of either actor would only continue to cement a strong cast.  Casting both would give audiences a chance to see both men play supporting roles without their comic costumes or makeup.

The story follows Rachel (Blunt) as a daily commuter who often watches Tom and Megan (Ferguson) through her passing train window. »

29 September 2015 5:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar nominee says studios should follow example of Alien’s Sigourney Weaver and The Hunger GamesJennifer Lawrence to avoid creating sexualised women ‘in some catsuit’

Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain has called for Hollywood to stop sexualising female action stars in a new interview for the Radio Times.

Chastain, who is currently promoting her role opposite Matt Damon in Ridley Scott space drama The Martian, is known for dramatic roles in civil rights period piece The Help and super-serious science-fiction thriller Interstellar. But she retains an interest in taking on big-budget fantasy projects, provided the role on offer doesn’t require her to don tight clothing.

Could “The Martian” be this year’s blockbuster Hollywood Best Picture nominee?

24 September 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

I’ve written a fair amount about The Martian already this year, and still have more planned in advance of its release next week, but having seen the film now, I have more to say. First of all, it’s a terrific movie, one of my favorites of 2015 so far, and a legitimate Academy Award contender. Where exactly will depend on a few factors, but what I want to focus on today is how it can score a Best Picture nomination. Essentially, it will have to be a big financial hit and be the blockbuster nominee of the group. Can it do it? Believe it or not…I think that it can. I mentioned that this will need to make money, and by that I mean that often Oscar will have a financial hit or two in its Best Picture lineup. Honestly, they almost always need to have made some money, »

22 September 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before even a frame has shot, the buzz is building around "The Girl On The Train." The source material is Paula Hawkins' novel, which became something of a sensation this year. And the trio of lead actresses cast so far is pretty terrific too, with Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, and Haley Bennett all nabbing roles. Now, two more big names are boarding the picture. Variety reports Jared Leto and Chris Evans are in early talks for the movie, slated to be directed by Tate Taylor ("The Help," "Get On Up"). The plot revolves around a young woman whose observations of a married couple on her daily commute take a sudden, deadly turn when she sees something not quite right. And while the story has been transplanted from Britain to New York City, Blunt recently confirmed her character will keep her accent. "It's moved to New York but I'm going to play her as British, »

15 September 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Well, that didn.t take long. We just recently heard that Disney is getting back in to the Mary Poppins business, and already you can lay a wager on who will replace Julie Andrews in the lead role. (Can you ever really replace Julie Andrews?). EW has the betting odds on which actress will take over the role of the practically perfect nanny in Rob Marshall.s (Into the Woods) new film. It.s going to be an interesting thing to see as, set 20 years after the events of the 1964 original, it.s not quite a sequel, but not quite a reboot, but still somehow a little bit of both. Yeah, curious, too. But for now, here are the betting favorites for the new Mary Poppins, should you care to lay a wager.

Paul Dini shares his thoughts on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad

9 September 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Almost quarter of a century after her first appearance in the Batman: The Animated Series episode ‘Joker’s Favor’, Harley Quinn will make her big screen debut as part of Warner’s big DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad, which hits cinemas next year.

Back in May, DC Animated Universe legend Bruce Timm shared his thoughts on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn [see here], and now fellow co-creator Paul Dini has followed suit, telling the Shanlian On Batman podcast (via Forbes) that:

“[Suicide Squad] very much a real-world look. Jared Leto’s version of [The Joker] is almost like a decadent rockstar and there’s a little bit of Sid and Nancy to the Joker and Harley look, which I always felt would not be a bad look if they were in a live-action movie. I know it’s jarring to a lot of the people who love the classic Bruce Timm suit, I love it myself. »

Emma Stone on Woody Allen, whitewashing and why Hollywood pairs her with older men

3 September 2015 5:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

She’s equally at home in comic-book blockbusters, arthouse fare and awards bait, but could this coolly unflappable screen presence have made her first career missteps by returning to work with Allen on Irrational Man, and courting controversy in Aloha?

In the boiling mid-afternoon heat, Emma Stone looks as cool as you like. There’s no detectable air conditioning, and while I stagger in from the street puce of face and clammy of brow, Stone, as befits a pampered scion of Hollywood, is sitting calmly in a breeze that wafts through the window, peering around the wing of a large cane armchair.

It’s how you expect Stone to present herself, somehow: self-possessed, unflappable, wise beyond her years. She’s only 26, and has been an authentic movie star for just five years – since the release of high-school comedy Easy A in 2010 – but appears to have cycled through the Hollywood gears with apparent nonchalance. »
