Frozen took the #1 position at the box office, pulling off the rare feat of finishing second in its opening weekend only to finish first in its second weekend. The Disney animated feature brought in $31.6 million this weekend, bringing its domestic cume to $134.3 million, while it has managed $55.9 million in foreign territories thus far. In second is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, adding another $27 million to its total, which has now risen to $336.7 million domestically as its total worldwide haul thus far reaches $673.4 million, only $18 million shy of the first installment's worldwide total and it has only been 17 days. The weekend's lone new wide release was Out of the Furnace, which brought in $5.3 million from 2,101 theaters. Not exactly an impressive result, but I must say, I am surprised by the "C+" CinemaScore, I thought for sure it would be an "F". This isn't exactly a general audience-friendly film. It's a bit »

Moving triumphantly away from the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe stars as Allen Ginsberg, one of the great poets of the beat generation in the period drama Kill Your Darlings. Directed by John Krokidas, the film follows Ginsberg through his earlier years as a writer, with excellent performances from Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan( as the seductive Lucien Carr) and Michael C. Hall as Carr’s obsessed lover.
To celebrate the release of Kill Your Darlings we take a look at other renowned writers whose lives inspired critically acclaimed and award winning movies.
2006, dir. Bennett Miller
Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Oscar winning turn as journalist come novelist Truman Capote centres on the relationship that evolves between the writer and his subject. The infamous inspiration for In Cold Blood, Bennett Miller’s film focuses on Copote’s trip to Kansas with partner Harper Lee (Catherine Keener) to research the brutal killing of a family for an article. »

Eyebrows were raised back in September, when Woody Allen was announced as the 2014 recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement at the Golden Globes. Not, of course, that it was a controversial selection in itself: you could argue for the award being a tad redundant, given that Allen hasn't exactly been under-recognized in his career, but hardly undeserved. (Indeed, he has been given somewhat short shrift by the HFPA: his only two Globe wins have come in the Best Screenplay category, for "Midnight in Paris" and "The Purple Rose of Cairo," though "Hannah and Her Sisters" and "Vicky Cristina »

It may only be November, but the starter pistol has already fired and the Oscars race is well and truly under way. We've already seen a host of films - from Gravity to Captain Phillips - released in cinemas, but many more are on their way looking to leave their impression on Academy Awards voters.
Digital Spy looks at 15 films competing for golden statues below...
Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks's bracing hijacking drama Captain Phillips left audiences on the edge of their seats and threw its leading man right into the mix for the Best Actor race. Greengrass bagged a directing nomination back in 2007 for United 93, so expect him to be in the race.

Hannah and Her Sisters is the definitive Thanksgiving movie, full stop. Why? Well, there’s a lot of Thanksgiving in it. But also, like your family, the one in this movie doesn’t know it’s unbearable, funny, sad, weird as hell, and perfect. It will fuel you with essential patience through Thursday’s festivities, even when your Uncle Werner begins with his conservative rants about Jennifer Lawrence‘s new haircut. She just likes it that way, Uncle Werner! Don’t be on the wrong side of history!
New viewers of Hannah and Her Sisters will find it’s much different than recent Woody Allen movies, which are streamlined, plot-driven efforts. Midnight in Paris and Blue Jasmine almost feel like elongated short films, but Hannah and Her Sisters dishes plenty of comedy, wordy-ass arguing, despair, and a lot of contemplative moments featuring none of the above.

Sure, you've seen Lawrence as the heroic "Hunger Games" champ (and rocking a pixie cut as of late), but there is still so much to learn about the outspoken star. From her childhood pony to her minor TV roles, here are 20 things you probably don't know about Jennifer Lawrence.
1. Before setting her sights on acting, Lawrence aspired to become a doctor. »

In the current era of The Avengers and Batman Vs. Superman, it’s impossible to be a fan of the comic-book genre and not have a well-considered argument to the question, “Who’s the Most Powerful Superhero?” Superman, of course, is the most obvious answer in any superpower battle-royale debate, but there are strong and more interesting claims to be made for the others, too. (Except Hawkeye. Sorry, guy.)
In Hollywood offices, there are similar conversations going on all the time about their own legion of superheroes, those famous actors and actresses who can open a movie in New York, »

For everyone else counting down the days until Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest is released next year, the wait has just got a little easier, with Anderson releasing a brilliant new short film, Castello Cavalcanti.
Anderson is of course no stranger to the medium, with his career beginning back in 1994 with the short, Bottle Rocket, which was itself be turned into a feature two years later). The director then made the fantastic Hotel Chevalier, serving as the prologue for The Darjeeling Limited. And now he returns to the format with Castello Cavalcanti, presented by Prada.
Anderson is reuniting here with Jason Schwartzman, with whom he has worked countless times over the years, including on Hotel Chevalier, with Schwartzman then starring as Jack Whitman opposite Natalie Portman, his on-screen girlfriend.
This time around, Schwartzman stars as a Us racecar driver who crashes in a small Italian village in 1955, and he stars opposite Giada Colagrande. »

As we eagerly wait for Wes Anderson's next film The Grand Budapest Hotel next summer (and continue laughing at the "Saturday Night Live" horror movie spoof inspired by the director), the filmmaker behind The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou has just released a new short film called Castello Cavalcanti. Starring Jason Schwartzman, star of Anderson's Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited and last year's Moonrise Kingdom, the film follows an Italian-American racer in 1955 Italy after he crashes his car in a small town that surprisingly holds a family connection. It has all the charm you'd expect. Here is Wes Anderson's short film Castello Cavalcanti, direct from Prada: Shot by Darius Khondji (The Immigrant, Amour, Midnight in Paris), this feels like it was shot on a diorama, almost like a mixture of Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Life Aquatic. That score you're hearing comes from Alessandro Casella and Randall Poster, »

Prada has teamed with writer/director Wes Anderson to deliver a new eight-minute short film titled Castello Cavalcanti starring Jason Schwartzman as Formula One race driver Jed Cavalcanti. The short was presumably made once Anderson finished work on his upcoming film The Grand Budapest Hotel, which The Playlist says could have actually been released this year until Fox Searchlight decided to hold off for a March 2014 release. The short follows Jed during the Molte Miglia rally, in September 1955 when he crashes into a sculpture of Jesus in Castello Cavalcanti and fatefully meets his ancestors and ultimately has a few drinks and spaghetti with them. Co-starring Giada Colagrande Featuring cinematography from Darius Khondji (Midnight in Paris) you can check out the short directly below. yt id ="yWnKRJ4c8xY" width="610" »

• Review of Gravity
Competitors stampeded away from the release date in panic, giving director Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity a clear run at the UK audience. The result: an impressive £6.24m, including Thursday takings of £619,000. This is the biggest opening for lead actors Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Bullock's biggest debuts were this summer's The Heat (£2.5m, including £910,000 in previews), the punctuation-challenged Two Weeks Notice (£2.64m), and Speed (£2.31m). Clooney's previous best openings were Ocean's Eleven (£5.1m), and Batman and Robin (£4.94m). Cuarón's previous best is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which achieved a mighty debut of £23.88m thanks to an aggressive preview strategy.

Glenn here. Remember when The Film Experience asked what "fictional art you want to experience"? The Broadway show from Woody Allen's 1994 classic Bullets Over Broadway was a definite favourite. The new stage adaptation directed by Susan Stroman will likely be the closest we will ever get, so I guess we should take a look at the new poster (or, at least, new to me).
Hopefully this is a bigger success for Stroman than the recently opened - and now recently closing - stage adaptation of Big Fish. Stroman also directed the immensely popular The Producers so this period is certainly in her wheelhouse. How much do you reckon the budgetary figure for "neon signs" is going to be on this production? I was unaware that Woody Allen himself was in charge of writing the adaptation. It should come as no surprise, however, that the music will not be original. »

Hiddleston is a veteran of television and movies, having appeared in series such as Wallander and movies such as Midnight in Paris and The Deep Blue Sea. His newest film, Thor: The Dark World, in which he reprises the role of Loki, opens in wide release in American theatres this weekend.
The post Saturday Shorts: ‘Out of Time’, starring Tom Hiddleston appeared first on Sound On Sight.

We all know that seasoned stand-up comedians and the entire cast of Saturday Night Live can do some solid celebrity impressions, but they aren't the only ones who can poke some fun at Hollywood's finest. Tom Hiddleston recently showed off his spot-on impression of Midnight in Paris costar Owen Wilson, while Bradley Cooper can do his own imitation of Owen. Neither of them can top Matt Damon though, who has taken on Matthew McConaughey's Southern drawl numerous times over the years. Check out the most imitated celebs and the celebs who can do the most imitations. Owen Wilson Tom Hiddleston picked up a few pointers after making Midnight in Paris with Owen. Behold: However, Bradley Cooper also does a great take on Wilson after costarring with him in Wedding Crashers: Check out more funny impressions when you read more.

Since 2011, Tom Hiddleston has portrayed the legendary supervillain, Loki, three times -- and no one is complaining.
Not only has Hiddleston made the villain his own, but he has also officially cemented Loki in the realm of elite comic book-turned-movie characters. Come this Friday, Hiddleston can again be seen as Loki in "Thor 2: The Dark World."
The second installment of the "Thor" franchise has the hammer-wielding god enlisting the services of his adopted brother-slash-enemy in order to save the Nine Realms from Malekith the Accursed -- a supervillain too powerful for Thor to fight on his own.
While you've seen Hiddleston don the Loki costume (and maybe transform himself into F. Scott Fitzgerald in "Midnight in Paris"), there is still much to know about this rising star. From his favorite superhero to his fears, here are 18 things you probably don't know about Tom Hiddleston.
1. Before his star-turn as Loki, »
