After breaking out in David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with her Oscar-nominated turn as hacker Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara has steadily cemented her reputation as one of the most talented young actresses working today with strong performances in Ain’t Them No Bodies Saints, Side Effects and Her. And she doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, with Stephen Daldry’s Trash, an untitled Terrence Malick project and erotic thriller Carol in the can. Now, we’ve learned that Mara has booked another high-profile gig leading the Jim Sheridan-directed The Secret Scripture.
Mara will replace Jessica Chastain in the drama, “about a 100-year-old woman named Roseanne who recounts her life in mental institutions in a secret memoir.” She will be playing the younger version of Roseanne, “who survives a traumatic childhood only to see her life utterly changed by a vindictive Catholic priest. »

It’s been nearly a decade since the last trip to the well with The Ring 2, the second American film adapted from the 1998 Japanese horror. While the fervour for Japan-inspired horror appears to have long since been surplanted by the likes of The Conjuring and Insidious, Paramount is not ready to let go of the Ring. Now Before The Fall director F. Javier Gutierrez is in talks to handle a third outing.In development since at least 2010, this will be a third American look at the mysterious events surrounding a cursed video tape. Given how media use has moved on, we assume it's a pirated MP4 that has spread across the web by now. Oooh! And that would allow the filmmakers to get a not-so-subtle anti-piracy message in there too.With producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald attached, not much else is known about the film. Back when it was first mooted, »
It isn't clear if Naomi Watts, who starred in 2002's The Ring and the 2005 sequel The Ring Two, will be back for The Ring 3. We last reported on this project way back in April 2010, when David Loucka (House at the End of the Street, Dream House) came aboard to write the script. The project was envisioned as a 3D sequel at that time, but it isn't known if Paramount is still working from his draft, or if they plan on bringing new writers in.
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will return to produce, although no production schedule was given. The Ring, which was adapted from the 1998 Japanese thriller Ringu, earned $249 million worldwide, although the follow-up, The Ring Two, only managed to »
After taking on roles in thrillers like Dream House and The Bourne Legacy, then a supporting part in the big-budget blockbuster Oz the Great and Powerful, Rachel Weisz is getting back to smaller dramatic fare by joining Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander in the Derek Cianfrance-directed The Light Between Oceans.
The drama, an adaptation of the bestselling novel of the same name by M.L. Stedman, is set on a remote island off the coast of Australia in the years following World War I. It centers on a lighthouse keeper (Fassbender) and his lonely wife (Vikander), who are faced with an unexpected moral conundrum when a small boat containing a dead man and a two-month-old infant washes ashore. When the pair decide to keep the child and raise it as their own, the consequences of that choice are devastating.
Weisz is set to play the mother of the infant, who »

The theatrical market in the Asian-Pacific region is now the largest single component of global box office, worth $11.1 billion in 2013, the year when it overtook both North America ($10.9 billion) and Europe-Middle East-Africa (also $10.9 billion). And unlike the European and North American markets, which have stagnated, Asia has been on a steady upward trend, driven on by growth in China, India and Malaysia as well as emerging movie markets Indonesia and Vietnam.
But if the overall trend is upward, the individual market conditions faced by distributors within the region vary enormously:
In booming South Korea, the major exhibitors are under anti-monopoly investigation, yet the number of film imports and releases is one of the highest in the world. In China, these days the world’s fastest growing major market, government policy favors local films and local companies. While import quotas grab the headlines for their effect on Hollywood studio titles, censorship »

Even the "Human Barbie" has to hit the gym!Valeria Lukyanova posted a bare-faced gym selfie on Facebook Wednesday, showcasing her tiny waist in a black sports bra and matching workout pants.In the pic, the 28-year-old took a break from her fitness routine to snap a photo in the mirror without her signature Barbie contact lenses, stage makeup and hair extensions. Lukyanova's story went viral in 2012 after the Internet caught on to her style and impossible proportions. She recently spoke with GQ about how she really isn't that different from anyone who utilizes cosmetics and cosmetic procedures. "Everyone wants a slim figure. Everyone gets breasts done. Everyone fixes up their face if it's not ideal, you know? Everyone strives for the golden mean. It's global now," she said. But, some just don't understand. "I don't really get her. I don't get why people think she's so interesting," Justin Jedlica, »

Even the "Human Barbie" takes a day off from her makeup routine!Valeria Lukyanova posted a bare-faced bikini selfie on Facebook Monday, showcasing her impossibly-proportioned waist and admittedly enhanced breasts.In the pic, the 28-year-old is posing in a black two-piece, without her signature Barbie contact lenses, stage makeup and hair extensions.In a recent interview with GQ, Valeria shared her shocking opinion on why the "ideal" of beauty is so different in the present day. "That's because of race mixing," she told the mag. "Ethnicities are mixing now, so there's degeneration, and it didn't used to be like that. Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this." Sounds just a little racist to us!Valeria isn't alone in her quest to appear as perfect as a doll. So, what does "Human Ken" think of her? »
