Angelina Jolie reflects on Unbroken: "I prefer directing to acting"

7 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Angelina Jolie has revealed she "prefers directing to acting" as she reflected on making World War II drama Unbroken.

The actress and filmmaker also discussed the struggle of the biopic's protagonist Louis Zamperini with Elle magazine, saying that "our experiences, good and bad, make us who we are."

"I prefer directing to acting," said Jolie, when asked about the artistic need that is satisfied by directing movies.

"There is huge freedom that comes from being behind the camera. It brings a lot of responsibilities as well, but is intensely rewarding.

"Particularly the chance to help draw out the best in young actors, like Jack O'Connell in Unbroken, who is a remarkable talent."

The drama follows former Olympian turned war hero Zamperini (O'Connell) and his survival during a harrowing 47 days in a raft to being held captive in a prisoner-of-war camp.

Disney developing a live-action Mulan

31 March 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney’s slate of live action adaptations continues to grow with the announcement that they will next be tackling Mulan.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney have purchased a script by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hyneck that centres around female warrior Hua Mulan, the main character from the animated feature.

Originally released in 1998, Mulan told the story of a young woman who disguises herself as a man so she can take her father’s place and go to war. As well as earning Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations, Mulan brought home $304 million at the box office. It was never as popular as other 90s Disney movies like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin or The Lion King, but Mulan has its fanbase.

Disney have been on a role as of late with their live action adaptations. Cinderella has made an impressive $336.2 million worldwide, though that doesn’t quite compare to the Angelina Jolie-starring Maleficent, »

Disney Developing Live-Action Mulan Remake

30 March 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It was inevitable that Disney would announce another one of its animated properties getting the live-action treatment, but the question was which classic would be chosen. Now we know what’s next up at bat, as THR reports that the Mouse House is working on a live-action retelling of Mulan, based on its 1998 animated film based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a female warrior. The studio recently bought a script for the movie by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek and will be working from that foundation. This news comes on the heels of the studio’s live-action Cinderella opening a couple of weeks ago to stellar reviews and solid box office, which itself followed 2014’s Angelina Jolie-fronted Maleficent. The trend continues with Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book in 2016, Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in 2017, and the recent news »

Disney Is Working on a Live-Action 'Mulan' Remake, Too: Report

30 March 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no "Bambi," but Disney may already have already set its next animated flick due for a live-action reboot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio wants to develop a live-action version of "Mulan," its 1998 film centered around the titular ancient Chinese girl, who disguises herself as a man to take her ailing father's place in battle. Disney has already reportedly purchased a script by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that features the same Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, which inspired the original animated flick, THR writes.

While "Mulan"'s box office receipts were modest by Disney standards -- it pulled in around $304 million internationally -- the studio's recent success with live-action adaptations of its previous flicks has proven irresistibly lucrative. "Cinderella," starring Lily James, has raked in $336.2 million worldwide since its bow three weeks ago, and last year's "Maleficent," featuring newly-minted Kids' Choice Award-winner Angelina Jolie, hauled in a whopping $758.4 million. »

After days of opening up about her cancer prevention surgery, Angelina Jolie made her first big public appearance post-surgery during a fun Saturday night at the Kids’ Choice Awards with her daughters Shiloh and Zahara.

The Maleficent actress gave a powerful speech about being different during the show after winning Best Villain. “I wanna say that when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different,” she shared. “Never good at fitting in, and then I realized something, something I hope you all realize — different is good.” And of course, she ended the inspiring speech in true villainous style “And as your villain, I would tell you to cause a little trouble. It’s good for you.” She definitely knows how to stir up a little trouble, remember her Pda session with Brad Pitt at their kids soccer game? She’s the best.

Dwayne Johnson Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

28 March 2015 11:39 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s almost too easy to declare that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson “rocked” as host of this week’s Saturday Night Live — but that doesn’t mean such a statement would be inaccurate.

PhotosJohn Noble Recalls His Time on Fringe, 24, Sleepy Hollow and More

In fact, it says a lot about the Furious 7 star’s comedic chops that the evening’s worst sketches either gave him absolutely nothing to do (“Cooking With Paul”) or didn’t include him at all (“The Circus”).
