How Diane Kruger Went From Ballet Dancer to Actress And Found Herself Along the Way

12 August 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“How are you not a big damn star?” This was the question I most itching to ask German actress Diane Kruger when we sat down to discuss her curious career and her latest lauded film, Alice Winocour’s surreal thriller “Disorder.”

A striking beauty with regal cheekbones, the tri-lingual Kruger has been awing audiences for years, thanks to turns in French prestige pictures like Benoît Jacquot’s “Farewell, My Queen” and bold American movies like Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds.” Yet somehow, Kruger’s path has not led her to A-list status. Retracing her steps from ballerina to model to internationally acclaimed thespian, we explored the whys and why bother of it all.

Kruger’s earliest artistic ambition was ballet, which she studied at the Royal Academy in London. “I didn’t know it then,” she told IndieWire, »

Captain America: Civil War movie review: the consequences of superpowers

29 April 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Tough, unanswerable human questions frame spectacular, innovative action sequences that are like superhero ballets. This series just keeps getting better. I’m “biast” (pro): love the Marvel movies

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

What is the best way to deploy vastly superior abilities against less capable but nevertheless still very dangerous bad guys? How best to minimize collateral damage — of both the human and the infrastructure kind — when those vastly superior abilities are put to their use? What happens when people of good conscience, all of whom genuinely want nothing more than to increase net happiness and general well-being in the world, disagree over the answers to these questions? And who should get the final say: politicians sitting at desks thousands of miles away from the fields of battle, or the soldiers fighting those battles?

'Wolverine 3' Gets 'Narcos' Star Boyd Holbrook as the Villain

8 April 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We haven't heard much about 20th Century Fox's Wolverine 3 in quite some time, aside from X-Men Origins: Wolverine star Liev Schreiber confirming that he's been in talks with the studio to reprise his role as Sabretooth. We know that Hugh Jackman is returning for his final performance as the title character, with Patrick Stewart also coming back as Professor X. Today we have a new report from Deadline that reveals Narcos star Boyd Holbrook has closed a deal to play the primary villain.

The actor is reportedly playing the head of security for a "global enterprise," who squares off against Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. It isn't known for sure if this character has roots in the Marvel Comics, or if he was created specifically for this movie. There have been rumors that this story will be adapted from the Old Man Logan comics, where Logan loses his mutant powers and »

'Allegiant' Fail: Why Ya Movies Dying Is Bad for Everyone

21 March 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Welcome to the Scorch!

Bella Swan and Edward Cullen may live forever in the supposed bliss of a deathless union, but the genre they jumpstarted has proven to be decidedly mortal. It was only a few short years ago that the blitz of post-Potter Ya adaptations — characterized by dystopian settings, a fetish for the supernatural, and a buffet of genetically indistinguishable British boys — was standing toe-to-toe with superhero movies atop the Hollywood food chain. But the times they are a changin', fluctuating like the hormones of their target demographic.

Best Actress Besties Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan Honored in Santa Barbara

8 February 2016 11:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — The Santa Barbara International Film Festival displayed the proper foresight in late November last year when selecting “Room” star Brie Larson and “Brooklyn’s” Saoirse Ronan as first-time tandem recipients of the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award: Both have remained out in front of the best actress Oscar race in a year marked by a number of female-centric narratives, and they continue to lock horns heading into the Feb. 28 Academy Awards ceremony.

Of course, nothing approaching competitive awareness was on display Monday night as the two ingenues — who have been previously recognized by Sbiff in the Virtuosos sidebar — enjoyed their dual tributes. In fact, they’ve become quite close on the circuit.

Alas, circumstances kept them apart this time — the production of “Kong: Skull Island,” to be specific. The blockbuster sequel has filled Larson’s schedule all season as she has bounced from locations in Vietnam, »

The Most Successful Ya Novel Movie Adaptations, Ranked

22 January 2016 11:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even if you're not a big reader of young adult fiction, you may have seen the advertisements for the new Chloë Grace Moretz movie The 5th Wave and suspected that it looks like the kind of movie that was adapted from a Ya franchise. All the elements are there: a post-apocalyptic dystopia, a winsome female protagonist who stands up to become the world's champion, an imperiled younger sibling and the winning combination of light science fiction and teenaged angst. The 5th Wave is the first in a trilogy of books by Rick Yancey about a group of underage rebels fighting off an alien invasion. »
