15 September 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Director Max Joseph Teases Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski In First Look At We Are Your Friends

9 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Edm has become a full-blown cultural phenomenon, prevailing in clubs and on the charts, but few great films have been made about the musical genres. Catfish: The Series host Max Joseph is aiming to change that with his upcoming We Are Your Friends, about a young, up-and-coming DJ exploring life and love in Los Angeles while aspiring to mainstream success.

With Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski, Wes Bentley and more in the film, it’s certainly a high-profile project, and we’ve been keeping an eye on it for a while now. Recently, Joseph released an enjoyable behind-the-scenes look at We Are Your Friends, which he promises will be the first of many on-set videos.

Deadline describes the plot of We Are Your Friends as follows:

“It’s set in the worlds of electronic music and the Hollywood nightlife, where an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole spends his days scheming with »

DVDs and downloads: Bad Neighbours, Concussion, the complete Sopranos, Blue Ruin and more

6 September 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Zac Efron comes into his own as the college boy determined to make Seth Rogan's life a misery. And the final word on the greatest TV series ever made and no, it's not Breaking Bad

At some point quietly, without ceremony and certainly at no one's urgent request Zac Efron morphed from a fibreglass facsimile of matinee-idol perfection circa 1957 into rather a good actor. The Paperboy and At Any Price showed flashes of a burgeoning sense of self-awareness in the former High School Musical poppet, but it's Nicholas Stoller's lewd, lairy and very funny comedy Bad Neighbours (Universal, 15) that heralds his fully formed arrival.

Like Channing Tatum, Efron has clocked that beefcake is best served with a side of irony: he's both gleefully repellent and improbably vulnerable as the dimwitted, near-sociopathic president of a party-hearty college fraternity who resolves to make life a living hell for the obliviously »

Robert De Niro to team with Zac Efron for Dirty Grandpa

5 September 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Two actors from very different generations are set to team up for an upcoming comedy. Oscar winner Robert De Niro (Meet The Parents, Goodfellas) and Hollywood heart-throb Zac Efron (Bad Neighbours, The Paperboy) being eyed to star in Dirty Grandpa, the latest film from Dan Mazer, director of I Give It A Year and co-writer of Borat, Ali G and Bruno with Sacha Baron Cohen.

Early talks have already started to take place, but if all goes well the film will see Efron will play a young man who is tricked into driving his grandfather (De Niro), a perverted former Army general who thinks his grandson is about to marry the wrong woman, to Florida for spring break. Think Spring Breakers and 22 Jump Street with a dash of The Guilt Trip and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

If all goes well with the talks, Universal are looking at getting the film »

'Selma' first look: David Oyelowo takes on Martin Luther King in upcoming film

22 August 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A cross, constructed entirely of lightbulbs, shines behind David Oyelowo as he approaches the pulpit of Atlanta’s 145-year-old Wheat Street Baptist Church. It’s a steamy June night, and 500 extras—including U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a key architect of the civil rights movement—eagerly await the British-born actor’s first attempt to preach as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But just as director Ava DuVernay puts on her headphones and does a last sound check, a freak lightning storm threatens the safety of the crew and forces the production to shut down.

Damon Dash seeks compensation from The Butler director Lee Daniels

14 August 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

American entrepreneur Damon Dash has lodged a summons at New York Supreme Court, asserting that he is owed money by The Butler director Lee Daniels.

Dash, who co-founded Roc-a-Fella Records with Jay Z, claims that he has unfulfilled written and oral agreements in relation to various of Daniels' film and television projects, such as The Woodsman, Precious, The Paperboy and The Butler.

The summons states that the entrepreneur is due compensation, producer credits and ownership rights.

Daniels must now respond to the summons in court, or risk Dash seeking a default judgment of $25 million and producer credits on Daniels' projects.

It was announced earlier this month that Daniels has signed on to direct The Brian Banks Story, about a high school American football champion who was convicted of rape.

President Barack Obama previously revealed that he "teared up" when he watched Lee Daniels' The Butler.

Jack Reacher most complained about movie as UK sees rise in 12A rating

17 July 2014 3:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

2013 saw a record rise in movies granted the 12A certificate.

In total 321 big screen releases were rated 12A last year, including box office hit The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and the Oscar-winning Gravity.

The number represents a sharp climb from the 234 12A titles in 2012. However, according to BBFC director David Cooke, there is still some consumer confusion about what the certificate means.

Cooke told the BBC that a "significant minority" of 10,000 people polled - 27% - were unclear about the rating.

"It's inherently a slightly more complicated explanation than most," he said, adding that "parents are far better placed than us to judge whether a particular film would give their child too intense an experience or not".

12A releases have now overtaken 15 certificate films. The rating means that children under the age of 12 must be accompanied to the film by an adult.

First Trailer For John Slattery’s Debut ‘God’s Pocket’ Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman & Christina Hendricks

24 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve been keeping an eye on John Slattery’s directorial debut God’S Pocket since I first heard that the Mad Men actor was moving behind the camera. This first trailer doesn’t disappoint if you like a little dark comedy drama, with a tremendous cast attached.

When Mickey’s (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) crazy step-son Leon (Caleb Landry Jones) is killed in a construction ‘accident’, nobody in the working class neighbourhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother Jeanie (Christina Hendricks) demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck in a life-and-death struggle between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay.

God’S Pocket looks like a solid debut for Slattery, who appears to have his eye on a good story. »

The debut feature by everyone’s favourite Mad Man John Slattery, God’s Pocket is named after the Philadelphia neighbourhood in which it’s set.

Zac Efron May Star In Untitled DJ Project For Catfish’s Max Joseph

6 June 2014 6:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he cut his teeth on Disney’s High School Musical franchise and spent a handful of years starring in teen-targeted trash like 17 Again,  Zac Efron is quickly becoming respected as an A-list actor. He drew praise for his lead roles in thriller The Paperboy and JFK assassination drama Parkland, then earned the best reviews of his career last month for toplining the raunchy comedy Neighbors. Now, according to multiple insiders on the project, Efron is in negotiations for another lead role, this time in a movie about an aspiring DJ.

Written by MTV’s Catfish co-host Max Joseph and Meaghan Oppenheimer (whose drama script The Remains made the 2013 Black List), the film will follow an up-and-coming DJ who struggles to put together his first hit track. Joseph is set to make his directorial debut on the movie, following his award-winning  “Follow the Frog” commercial for Rainforest Alliance and the »

Lee Daniels Talks Transition from Film to Fox TV's Hip Hop Musical 'Empire' and HBO's Sammy Davis Jr. Biopic

29 May 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Offered the chance to meet Lee Daniels, I took it. I've never interviewed the filmmaker before. He's a fascinating enigma, someone who veers in and out of control of his medium as he tries to stay in touch with his inner truth --and demons--for the sake of his art. He is an artist--for better or worse, as his films, which are never boring, attest, from "Shadow Dancer" and "The Paperboy" to his mainstream hits "Precious" and "The Butler." Actors revere him. Critics? Not so much.  We meet at the Chateau Marmont, where New Yorker Daniels is holed up working on his musical Fox TV series "Empire," which has just been green-lit off the pilot. What? He knows this move to network television seems surprising (cable seems more likely), but he decided that this high-concept pitch from "The Butler" writer Danny Strong --"King Lear" set in the world of hip-hop-- called for mainstream treatment. »

Cannes: ‘Grace of Monaco’ Won’t Be an Oscar Contender (Analysis)

14 May 2014 3:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When the teaser trailer for “Grace of Monaco” debuted last fall, the Nicole Kidman biopic about Grace Kelly felt like a natural Oscars contender. The drama, directed by Olivier Dahan (who helped land Marion Cotillard an Academy Award for 2007′s “La Vie en Rose”) was about two subjects actors love dearly: other actors and European royalty.

Then the release date for “Grace” was delayed by the Weinstein Co., and its filmmakers said they never intended to make an Oscars movie.

On Wednesday, “Grace” premiered as the opening-night selection of the Cannes Film Festival, which launched Nicole Kidman’s “Moulin Rouge” into the best picture race in 2002. But Dahan was right: “Grace” isn’t an Oscars contender. The story, which at times feels like a made-for-tv movie, is, as Harvey Weinstein reportedly complained to Dahan, too dreary. Unlike “My Week With Marilyn” or “The King’s Speech,” there’s no redeeming »

Nicole Kidman says it's 'sad' Grace Kelly's family is boycotting 'Grace of Monaco'

14 May 2014 6:31 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes - Nicole Kidman is back in Cannes for the third year in a row, but this visit may be her least memorable. The Oscar winner stars as cinema icon Grace Kelly in the festival's opening night film, "Grace of Monaco," and the early reviews have not been good. Throw in the fact that Kelly's family has announced they are boycotting the picture and, well, you have to give her credit for being willing to appear before a throng of global journalists at the festival's kick-off press conference. "Obviously I feel sad, because I think that the film has no malice toward the family or in particular toward Grace or Rainier," Kidman said regarding the boycott. "It's fictionalized. It's not a biopic. There is an essence of truth, but with a lot of these things you take dramatic license at times. I understand also because they are their mother and father, »

Grace of Monaco opens Cannes to scathing reviews: "Worse than Diana"

14 May 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nicole Kidman can't seem to catch a break when it comes to the Cannes Film Festival. Two years after she hit the headlines for dousing Zac Efron in The Paperboy, she returns this year with royal biopic Grace of Monaco.

The Grace Kelly film will premiere on the Croisette this evening, but critics have already delivered unanimously scathing reviews for the Olivier Dahan drama ("worse than Diana"). We round up the initial reaction below...

Peter Bradshaw - The Guardian

"It's traditional for Cannes to start with something spectacular. This is certainly no exception. It is a film so awe-inspiringly wooden that it is basically a fire risk. The cringe factor is ionospherically high. A fleet of ambulances may have to be stationed outside the Palais to take tuxed audiences to hospital afterwards to have their toes uncurled under general anaesthetic."

Zac Efron is Super-Cut

12 May 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

                

As a wise man (well, Seth Rogen) once said, Zac Efron looks like he “was engineered in a lab by a gay man.”  Our pals over at MTV wanted to prove the point so they treated us all to a supercut of every shirtless Zac Efron movie moment.

From those chaste, early scenes in High School Musical to the grimy tighties whities in The Paperboy, and now of course his chest-baring role in this weekend’s number one movie, Neighbors.  We’re not sure if MTV actually caught every one of Zac’s shirtless scenes… but bless them for trying!

'Grace Of Monaco' To Open Cannes Film Festival

11 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, will open the 2014 Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, May 14.

The film, from director Olivier Dahan (La Vie en Rose) is not in competition and details a fictionalized account of the life of legendary actress Grace Kelly, played by Kidman, after she left Hollywood to become a princess. The film also stars Tim Roth, as her husband Prince Rainier III, and Frank Langella as Father Francis Tucker.

The film has had its share of controversy, with Kelly's children Prince Albert II and Princesses Caroline and Stephanie denouncing the film and labeling it a "farce." Kidman defended the film, saying she understood the royal anger and stressed that the film is not meant to be a completely accurate recounting of Kelly's life.

"It's not meant to be biopic. I certainly did my best to honor everything that was real and truthful in it," Kidman said of the film. »

God’s Pocket | Review

Pocket Full of Sunshine: Slattery’s Debut Weak in the Knees

The devil’s not in all the details he should be of God’s Pocket, the directorial debut of actor John Slattery, most known for his presence on the series Mad Men. An adaptation of a 1983 novel by Pete Dexter, author of the novels that would spawn the unfairly shamed pulp of The Paperboy (2012) and Paris Trout (1991), this blue collar binge, tinged with a smeary myopic hue of sickly greens and faded palettes, plays like a sometimes comical visit to an outer ring of hell. Receiving mixed reviews after its premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who portrays the lead protagonist, inevitably renews the rather moribund anticipation of the film. Unfortunate as that may be, it’s an enjoyable performance from the late Mr. Hoffman, even though the film isn’t quite effective as it could be. »
