Robert Johnson's Acquisition Of Image Ent, Acorn Media Complete! Creates Formidable Indie Distributor

3 October 2012 2:29 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

It was in April when Robert Johnson's plans to acquire Image Entertainment and Acorn Media Group, to create what was deemed a "formidable independent distributor," were revealed.  Skip ahead 6 months to news today that the acquisition is indeed complete; both Image and Acorn have been swallowed by Rlj. In case you're not already aware... Image Entertainment is the acquisition and distribution company (primarily) behind the releases of recent titles we've written about, like 50 Cent's All Things Fall Apart, Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer (home video), Matthew Cherry's The Last FallDysfunctional Friends, the Berine »

Beefing Up: Ten Actors Who Underwent Remarkable Physical Transformations For Their Roles

19 July 2012 9:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When an actor completely immerses themselves into a role, the result is usually stunning. Sometimes though, what’s more impressive is the work that went in before filming even began. Changing appearance for roles has become quite common in movies today, but occasionally, an actor’s physical transformation goes far beyond a bit of make-up or a haircut, like Christian Bale in, well, most of his films.

In The Dark Knight Rises, out in theatres this week, actor Tom Hardy bulked up significantly to play the menacing terrorist Bane, a new villain intent on taking down Gotham City. The actor has had to bulk up for roles before (WarriorBronson) and in honour of his dedication, we look back at ten actors who have undergone remarkable physical transformations for their roles.

To start, let’s look at the aforementioned Mr. Hardy.

2 Academy Award Winners Be Damned, 50 Cent Ruins Movies: Trailer For 'Freelancers' With Robert De Niro & Forest Whitaker

1 June 2012 3:07 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

50 Cent is a financial titan. The rapper has expanded his brand into sneakers, books, body spray, condoms, vitamin water, energy drinks and, of course, film production via his Cheetah Vision production company. And that's what we're here to talk about. You see, while 50 Cent likes to make money -- lots of it -- that doesn't necessarily mean he cares about the quality of product he puts out there. And so, it's hardly a shock that his steps into the film production world have resulted in movies that pretty much go straight-to-dvd. We're talking about his cancer drama "All Things Fall Apart" or the thriller "Setup" with Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe. And now his latest attempt at moviemaking, "Freelancers," seems headed for the same fate, and this time it will bring down two Academy Award winners with it.

The project was first announced last spring, and then we forgot about it, »

Film: Movie Review: All Things Fall Apart

15 February 2012 10:04 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The new cancer drama All Things Fall Apart provoked widespread, richly merited mockery when photos of 50 Cent, looking skeletal and Oscar-hungry, circulated online amid reports that the rapper-turned-actor had lost more than 50 pounds to play a cancer-stricken college football player. The dramatic weight loss earned headlines, but the fact that the 36-year-old actor—who thoroughly looks his age—felt he could convincingly play an athlete in his early 20s says even more about the self-delusion and narcissism behind this unintentionally hilarious vanity project.  In the role he was born not to play, the G-Unit head honcho—who also »

This Week on DVD and Blu-ray: Take Shelter, The Rum Diary, The Interrupters

14 February 2012 10:35 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Happy Valentine's Day! Sadly, there aren't too many romantic movies hitting DVD or Blu-ray today, but I suppose anything with Johnny Depp always makes for a perfect date flick... even if he happens to be playing an alcoholic. The Rum Diary is really the only major release of the week, with most of the other selections being indie and foreign films including Take Shelter starring Michael Shannon, Jose Padilha's Elite Squad: The Enemy Within and The Human Centipede II: Full Sequence. Criterion is also putting out Lena Dunham's Tiny Furniture and Hideo Gosha's Three Outlaw Samurai, and then there are a couple of acclaimed documentaries in The Interrupters and Urbanized. We'd also be remiss if we did not mention 50 Cent's cancer drama All Things Fall Apart... did someone say Oscar snub? What will you be buying or renting this week? Check out the list of new releases after the jump. »

New on DVD and Blu-Ray, February 14: 'The Interrupters' 'Rum Diary'

14 February 2012 9:53 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

DVD or Blu-ray? Redbox or Netflix? Streaming? Whatever your poison, we've got the highlights and lowlights on the week's new releases. Moviefone's Pick of the Week "The Interrupters" What's It About? "Hoop Dreams" director Steve James tackles the crisis of inner-city violence and the people who are trying restore peace and unity; following the CeaseFire activist organization for over a year as they try to quash Chicago's outbreak of gang-related crimes, "Interrupters" documents several cases of possible redemption -- with various results. See It Because: Steve James films some incredibly real moments of hope and despair, and while the film feels epic in scope, it hits hardest when you realize that these events are just another day for everyone involved. Also New on DVD & Blu-ray "The Rum Diary" Johnny Depp adapts another Hunter S. Thompson novel, but without any of the flair of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." See »

'Three Outlaw Samurai,' 'Tiny Furniture' and 'All Quiet on the Western Front' This Week on DVD and Blu-ray

14 February 2012 7:34 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Three Outlaw Samurai (Criterion Collection) I just watched this last night and enjoyed it quite a bit, but for anyone that reads this site often you will frequently see me complimenting samurai features. This one is a bit of a Criterion rarity in that it is feature free outside of the trailer and one essay, but the pricing does reflect that fact as Amazon has the Blu-ray listed at $19.99.

Prior to seeing this film I had never seen anything from director Hideo Gosha, but the storytelling here makes me want to see more. Three Outlaw Samurai follows the story of a wandering ronin who happens upon a situation where a trio of peasants have kidnapped the daughter of a tyrannical magistrate in an attempt to have their demands heard and to stop the oppression that has befallen eight local villages. The situation escalates when the magistrate fights back and two other samurai, »

Interview: Mario Van Peebles Says Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson Gives His All In All Things Fall Apart

11 February 2012 8:28 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Mario Van Peebles said he was drawn to the film “All Things Fall Apart” due to “curiosity.” “I’m interested to see what the universe brings,” he said. He was highly interested to see what kind of energy Curtis Jackson, better known to the rest of us as “50 Cent,” would bring to the leading role of Deon, a collegiate football player who develops cancer and has to face his mortality. “I was interested to see how he [Jackson] would get there [in character] as an actor,” he said. Once Van Peebles took the reins of director as well as the role of “Eric,” he learned just how much acting talent »

‘All Things Fall Apart’ Trailer – Remember That Time 50 Cent Made a Cancer Football Movie?

5 January 2012 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Over a year and a half ago, the world got its first glimpse at a shockingly emaciated [2] Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, who'd dropped nearly 60 pounds to play the lead role in a project called All Things Fall Apart. (Originally called just Things Fall Apart.) When the finished feature finally comes to DVD and Blu-ray next month, we'll finally get to see what all the trouble was for. Directed by Mario Van Peebles from a screenplay by Jackson and Brian A. Miller, the drama stars Jackson as a college football player who's on the verge of joining the NFL when he's sticken with cancer. We got an early peek at the film in the form of a sales trailer [3] that hit around its little-noticed Miami Film Festival premiere last spring, but now that Image Entertainment is on board we finally have an official trailer as well. Take a look after the jump. »

Did 50 Cent Really Have to Lose a Quarter?

4 January 2012 1:00 PM, PST | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »

If you’re going to gain or lose a ridiculous amount of weight as an actor, make sure someone is gonna give you an Oscar, or a Golden Globe, or at the very least a People’s Choice Award for all your trouble. Remember when Jared Leto gained 5,000 pounds to play John Lennon murderer Mark David Chapman in “Chapter 27“? No? That’s because nobody saw the movie, and it’s just sad to pull a De Niro if you »

Trailer For 50 Cent's Cancer Movie All Things Fall Apart

4 January 2012 12:22 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Well folks, the time has finally come. Nearly two years ago we heard about Curtis .50 Cent. Jackson taking on the role of a high school football player ailing from cancer, and today we finally get to see what the now 36-year-old rapper-turned-actor looks like playing someone half his age. All Things Fall Apart centers around Jackson.s Deon, who is on track to make the transition from high school straight into the NFL. But Deon is sidetracked by a form of spinal cancer that takes him down a completely different path, a strange path where Ray Liotta plays a doctor and not a mobster or corrupt cop who may chop your fingers off at any moment. Check out the many shapes and sizes of 50 Cent in the trailer below, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. I.ve got to give Jackson credit. While strapping dreadlocks to him does nothing to make him »
