Tom Hiddleston can pull off extreme looks. In The Avengers, he strutted around in Loki's two-foot horned helmet. For Midnight in Paris, he finessed F. Scott Fitzgerald's prim finger waves. And in his latest, Jim Jarmusch's vampire romance Only Lovers Left Alive, Hiddleston lounges bare-chested in velvet-cuffed robes. The only style he can't swing — at least, as far as casting directors seem to think — is modern, everyday mortal.

Consider his last 12 months. As if out to prove his range, the 33-year-old British actor played a god in a Marvel blockbuster (Thor: The Dark World), took < »
It's no surprise Jim Jarmusch's vampire love story Only Lovers Left Alive isn't a vampire film in the same vein as anything you've seen come out of Hollywood. These vampires don't glitter and they've found more conventional ways to sate their blood lust than risking exposure or worse by draining human beings. There is, however, an overall sense of loneliness and the characters are quite moody as most vampires tend to be. Their disgruntled, "hate the world" nature speaks to the film's larger theme, and while it isn't exactly ground-breaking, in terms of execution, it's quietly entertaining. The story centers on centuries old vampire lovers Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), the first of many recognizable/metaphorical/playful names used within the narrative. Though, when it comes to these two names Jarmusch credits his inspiration as not from the Bible, but from Mark Twain's "The Diaries of »

The Us House Of Cards actor and notable bald man Corey Stoll is currently in talks with Marvel Studios to appear in next year’s Ant-Man movie directed by Edgar Wright. Significant in that it’ll be the next ‘fringe’ Marvel movie to be made after this summer’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, it’s unclear what to expect from the film as the story – written by Wright and Attack The Block writer/director Joe Cornish – has so far been kept under wraps, aside from the information that Michael Douglas will play original Hank Pym and Paul Rudd his successor (at least in the comics) Scott Lang.
Ant-Man’s certainly not a household name – not yet, at least – so it’ll be interesting to see what fruits his translation to the silver screen will bear, as it’s unlikely a superhero film made by the director of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World »

(Cbr) Variety reports that "House of Cards" actor Corey Stoll is currently in negotiations to join Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" in an unspecified role. If cast, Stoll would be the latest actor confirmed to join the long-anticipated Marvel Studios film, which currently stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. Though best known for his role as Representative Peter Russo in the Emmy-nominated Netflix series "House of Cards," Stoll has had many recurring roles in television procedurals, and also played Ernest Hemingway in "Midnight in Paris" and has been cast as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather in FX's "The Strain" pilot. Stoll joining "Ant-Man" would make him the third male actor to join the film, which has yet to officially announce a female lead. Among names rumored to be in contention are "Lost" alum Evangeline Lilly and "Parks and Recreation" actress Rashida Jones. With a script by Wright and Joe Cornish, »

The cast of Marvel’s Ant-Man just got a little more talented. Corey Stoll, so excellent as Congressman Peter Russo on House of Cards, is about to join the project. According to Variety, he’s in negotiations for unknown role in the Edgar Wright film, which all ready has stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas onboard.
Stoll recently appeared in Liam Neeson’s latest action flick, Non-Stop, and earned raves for his performance in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris where he played literary legend Ernest Hemingway. His star is definitely on the rise.
Ant-Man, which Wright co-write with Joe Cornish, has kept its plot quite a secret up to this point so it’s anyone’s guess who Stoll might be playing. Other actors said to be in the running for roles in the movie that’s been described as a “heist film” are Michael Peña (whose excellent Cesar Chavez »

The great cast of Ant-man keeps on growing and today they have the addition of Corey Stoll, star of House Of Cards, The Bourne Legacy, Non-stop, Midnight In Paris and a whole lot more. Although he’s currently ‘in talks’ it does seem set that he’ll join Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd and the other list of hopefuls that include Patrick Wilson, Michael Pena and Evangeline Lilly.
What’s interesting about the cast here is that many of them straddle that good/bad divide, so it seems Wright is looking to cast people who could be working for either side of the metaphorical angelic or evil that we’ll surely encounter.
The Brit director has co-written the film with Joe Cornish, the man who gave us the underrated Attack The Block and the pair also worked together on The Adventures Of Tintin. for those who don’t know, Ant-man is about a biochemist called Dr. »

First up, comes news from The Wrap that Corey Stoll—aka Ernest Hemingway in “Midnight In Paris” and Congressman Russo from the first season “House of Cards”—is circling an undisclosed role in next year’s Edgar Wright-helmed “Ant-Man.” Due to the secrecy, could Stoll’s role be important in Marvel’s grand plan moving forward? We won’t know until Stoll actually commits and joins Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas in the superhero film officially. Now, moving on to a Marvel film that’s nearer to release: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” During an interview with The Scotsman, a digression between the writer and Chris Evans about the cool period jackets the superhero wore in the first film—and is briefly glimpsed in the second at a Smithsonian exhibit—may have inadvertently lead to a “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” spoiler. We’ll let the writer lay it out »

Movies can be rewatchable for all kinds of reasons, but the one constant is that they engage; whether that be on an intellectual, emotional or awesome car chase level, there needs to be something that keeps bringing the viewer back. These films are often different, then, to what’s considered ‘quality’ cinema in the eyes of awards bodies and the like. You wouldn’t watch 12 Years a Slave or There Will be Blood on repeat, even though they are exceptional pictures.
Rewatchable movies, on the other hand, have something to see you returning for more – they can be feel good films to help to keep your mood up, complex mysteries requiring your intense investigation, comedies that only get funnier with every watch, or simply damn entertaining genre pictures with stories well told.
There have already been thousands of movies released in the 14 years of this new millennium; here, »

Paris– “Zombillenium,” “Song of the Sea,” “The Ghosts of Pere Lachaise” and “Yellowbird” were among the highlights presented at Cartoon Movie’s animation co-production forum.

De Pins will direct, Henri Magalon’s Maybe Movies is producing with two other French shingles: 2 Minutes and Dupuis Edition & Audiovisuel.

When Adrien Brody became the youngest winner of the best actor Oscar in 2003 for his role in Roman Polanski's The Pianist, he was the toast of the film world. With a cameo role in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, he talks about how the accolade has shaped his career
The night after Adrien Brody won the Oscar for best actor in March 2003, he went to a restaurant and the entire room stood up and applauded. Eleven years later, he makes a far more low-key entrance at the fancy Bondi Beach restaurant Icebergs – no PR, no entourage, wearing flip-flops, and slightly miffed that I dropped his name in order to get a table. "I would never have done that," he frowns.
