Pregnant celebrities - Blake Lively loves getting dressed up

4 December 2014 11:56 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Blake Lively feels her ''strongest and sexiest'' when she gets dressed up. The 27-year-old 'Savages' actress, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds, admits she feels a lot more confident when she gets pampered by professionals. She said: ''When do I feel my strongest and sexiest? I don't know. Maybe when I've got a lot of good hair and makeup on.'' The former 'Gossip Girl' star, who recently launched her new lifestyle website Preserve, hinted she has no plans to take a step back from her Hollywood career after she gives birth. She told E! News at the L'Oréal Women of Worth Celebration in New York City on Tuesday night (02.12.14): ''The women that I'm attracted to are the women who never sit back and say, 'Okay, I'm done, I'm good.' And you see that here tonight with the women who are being honoured. »

James Cameron offers an update on the Avatar sequels

26 November 2014 2:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Cameron has spent the past few years hammering away at development on the upcoming trio of sequels to his 2009 mega-blockbuster Avatar, and with the films gearing up to go into back-to-back production the director has provided a brief update during a chat with Empire.

Cameron has been working on the screenplays for Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 with several writers, including Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Shane Salerno (Savages), and Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and he went on to discuss the writing process:

“I think we met for seven months and we whiteboarded out every scene in every film together,” Cameron explains, “and I didn’t assign each writer which film they were going to work on until the last day. I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every »

James Cameron Updates on 'Avatar' Sequels and Shooting in 48 Fps

26 November 2014 11:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Cameron is currently working on the scripts for his Avatar sequels, Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 in New Zealand, with production scheduled to begin sometime in the near future. Very little is known about the story for these follow-ups, except that fans will be taken back to the magical land of Pandora. During a new interview with Empire, James Cameron doesn't offer any story specifics, but revealed that they will be "bitchin."

"I can tell you one thing about them. They're gonna be bitchin'. You will s--t yourself with your mouth wide open."

The filmmaker did clarify one technical aspect of his sequels. Despite rumors that he planned on shooting at 60 frames per second and, most recently, at 120 Fps, James Cameron said that he has settled on shooting at 48 Fps, like Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy.

"My thinking at the time was that 60 [Fps] might be a »

6 November 2014 9:59 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, that didn't take long, it has now officially been confirmed Channing Tatum will star in Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, though the character he'll be playing has still yet to be revealed, though Screen Daily disputes the original report saying it's a "major" role, though just because the role may be small I guess that doesn't mean it still can't be important. In addition Tatum, we also now know Demian Bichir (A Better Life, Savages) has joined the cast which also includes confirmed actors Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, Walt Goggins, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tim Roth.

30 Ridiculously Sexy Taylor Kitsch Pictures That Might Make You Blush

30 October 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. The 33-year-old Canadian actor first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. Most recently, he appeared in The Normal Heart, and he's rumored to be returning to the small screen with a buzzed-about role on True Detective. In any case, now seems like the perfect time to look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years, including a mix of red carpet appearances and crazy-hot magazine editorials. Brace yourself - there are some really, really good ones. Source: Entertainment Weekly »

Review: Salma Hayek's got to get primal to survive the action movie 'Everly'

25 September 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - "Everly" puts me in an uncomfortable position. Sure, nowhere near as uncomfortable as the circumstances faced by Everly (Salma Hayek) over the course of the film, a one-room action movie, but as a film critic, I find myself really wrestling with my reaction. On the one hand, I like the energy of the film, and I think Hayek is about as appealing a lead as she's been in a while as the film opens in media hell, with her as a sex slave who finds herself at a turning point, freedom in her sights, but with a whole wall of mayhem between her and escape. The film makes a lot out of its single location, and I'm a fan of films where you watch one space get more and more destroyed over the course of an evening. Director Joe Lynch directs the film like a hungry man chasing a ham sandwich, »

Bradley Cooper to Star in Mack Bolan Movie; The Hangover’s Todd Phillips to Direct

19 August 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Everyone from Steve McQueen to Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood and Vin Diesel have been attached to a big screen adaptation of Mack Bolan (a.k.a. The Executioner) over the years, but a movie featuring the character who was introduced by author Don Pendleton in 1969 has never actually happened.

Pendleton wrote 37 novels in the series, while over 600 have since been produced by ghost writers. That gives any filmmaker a lot of material to work with, and it now appears as if it’s finally moving ahead.

Warner Bros. have hired Shane Salerno (Savages, Avatar 4) to pen the screenplay, with The Hangover’s Todd Phillips attached to direct. The project is being lined up for Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) to play the titular character, and the plan is for Salerno’s script to be the first in a trilogy.

Salerno, Phillips, and Cooper are all set to produce this adaptation of Mack Bolan as well. »

Casting: Bradley Cooper & Todd Phillips To Reteam For 'Mack Bolan,' Keanu Reeves Gets Wet In 'Rain' & More

19 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Todd Phillips and Bradley Cooper continue to bro out in a big way. The two are producing the director's next film, "Arms & The Dudes," recently picked up the rights to Evan Ratliff's The Atavist article "A Thousand Pounds Of Dynamite," and today have announced they'll  bring to life Don Pendelton's paperback action star Mack Bolan. Phillips will direct and Cooper will star. Shane Salerno ("Savages," "Avatar 4") is writing the script about the elite commando dude, but production will only start once his work on James Cameron's series is done. And oh yeah, this will be a PG-13 effort all the way. [Deadline] Keanu Reeves will star in the TV series "Rain," based on the work of writer Barry Eisler. Reeves takes the lead role of "John Rain, a half-Japanese, half-American contract assassin who struggles to find an identity beyond being a killer" in addition to producing the show. »

Bradley Cooper to Star in MacK Bolan Movie; Todd Phillips to Direct Action Novel Adaptation

18 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Author Don Pendleton introduced Mack Bolan (aka The Executioner) in 1969.  Pendleton wrote 37 Mack Bolan novels, sold the rights in 1980, and ghostwriters have produced over 600 books in the ongoing series.  Over the years, many of Hollywood's burliest leading men have angled to play the Vietnam veteran who fights against international terrorism, including Steve McQueen, Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, and Vin Diesel.  But a film adaptation has remained elusive. Writer Shane Salerno (Savages) is scripting a new attempt, and Warner Bros. has just acquired the Mack Bolan movie rights as a star vehicle for Bradley Cooper.  Cooper's Hangover director Todd Phillips is on board to helm the adaptation.  More after the jump. Salerno told Deadline his goal is to craft a “relevant, grounded and gritty, real-world PG-13 action-drama film series."  Salerno's script is intended as the first of a potential trilogy.  Salerno, Phillips, and Cooper will also produce. I will be impressed if Warner Bros. »

All the actors rumored to star in 'True Detective' season 2

5 August 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The casting process for True Detective’s second season has become just about as complicated as Rust and Marty’s search for the Yellow King in season one. And if you add in the 21st-century problem of social media—which the Yellow King was not a big fan of—one could argue that it’s an even more complicated puzzle. For months, there have been rumors surrounding the number of leads—two! three! four!—and from there, rumors surrounding who will play those leads—Josh Brolin! Brad Pitt! Jessica Chastain!

At this point, the show’s creator, Nic Pizzolatto, has »

Taylor Kitsch Being Courted for the Lead in the Unnecessary Remake of 'The Raid'

5 August 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There a lot of movies I hear or read people rave about, and when I finally watch them I'm underwhelmed.

"The Raid" is not one of those movies. It's every bit the thrill ride people say it is; so it's no surprise Hollywood wants to remake it.

I'm not inherently against remakes, there are several I like quite a bit. "The Departed" and "Last House on the Left" are great examples of remakes that are equal to, and in many ways surpass, the original films. That being said, I'll try to have an open mind watching the American remake of "The Raid," but I'm not terribly optimistic at this point.

The Wrap is reporting that Taylor Kitsch has been offered the lead role. I've seen Kitsch in "Savages", "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", "Battleship" and "John Carter of Mars," and I wasn't exactly impressed. 

What so you think? Can Kitsch pull off the role? »

Taylor Kitsch Offered ‘The Raid’ Remake Lead Role

4 August 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It wasn’t long ago that Taylor Kitsch was expected to be the next big box office draw. 2012 saw the Friday Night Lights star headline three major films in the form of John CarterBattleship, and Savages. Unfortunately for the actor, all of those projects failed to connect with audiences, and his career stalled before it even really started.

However, his past failures haven’t caused him to give up hope just yet. A new report suggests that Kitsch is being offered the lead role in the upcoming English-language remake of the action film The Raid - while rumors continue to circulate about his potential involvement with season two of the HBO crime drama True Detective.

The Wrap‘s sources are saying that Expendables 3 ...
