These days, it seems hard for me to believe that there was a point where I did not like the work of Channing Tatum. For several of his early movies, I felt like he was a good looking guy with no chops at all, and it didn't seem to me like he was ever going to loosen up. He had some buzz around him when he was in "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints," and he was certainly busy as the next few years unfolded, starring in films like "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra," "Dear John," "The Eagle," and "Step Up 2: The Streets," but it wasn't until 2011 that I started to come around to what he was doing. "The Dilemma" is a fairly awful film, but Tatum shows up late in the movie and suddenly things start to come to life. Also that spring, "Haywire" came out, and »

Before Eddie Redmayne shot his starring role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, he made Jupiter Ascending. He trained hard to get his body ripped (hello, six-pack!) for his work as bad boy Balem opposite Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in the sci-fi action flick. "It was a fleeting ephemeral moment," Redmayne joked with me last night at Theory's L.A. premiere. "It was there for a second." He says his fiancée, Hannah Bagshawe, didn't mind his muscled bod, but he said, "She didn't like that my character had to have long nails. I cut them the day we finished shooting." But before he knew it, he was growing them again. "About two days later when I »
A puzzling quiet blankets Imax’s sprawling Santa Monica complex on a recent October afternoon. Trailers for “Dracula Untold” and “Jupiter Ascending,” screaming, “See it in Imax!” play in a loop, but most of the company’s employees are absent. Stacks of film canisters for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming “Interstellar” line the hallway, outnumbering the executives and technicians on hand.
There’s a reason for this veritable ghost town. The Imax crew is overseeing a Universal CityWalk screening, for theater owners, of Nolan’s space adventure. In their absence, Greg Foster, CEO of Imax Entertainment, and the company’s ambassador to Hollywood, is jittery. He’s desperate to know how the pic played.

Eddie Redmayne always knew that the toughest critic of “The Theory of Everything” would be the man he portrays onscreen — Stephen Hawking. The 72-year-old physicist recently made the trek from his home in Cambridge, England, to Working Title’s production offices in London to watch the biopic based on his life. Hawking’s longtime battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als) has left him a quadriplegic, and he speaks through a computer-generated voice amplifier. Before the screening, he met Redmayne. “He took a while to type something, then said, ‘I’ll let you know what I think — good or otherwise,’ ” Redmayne recalls. “I said, ‘Stephen, if it’s otherwise, you don’t need to go into details.’ ”

Mila Kunis opened up about motherhood for the first time Monday. The Jupiter Ascending star, 31, designed an emerald "motherhood ring" to benefit other moms. The actress who is also global ambassador for Gemfields, co-created an 18-karat yellow-gold emerald ring with jeweler Marina B. The profits will help fund a maternity center in Zambia, near the Gemfields mine. The ring is in limited production and costs $4,800. This is a cause that's especially close to Kunis' heart, as she and her fiancé, Ashton Kutcher, welcomed a daughter, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, on Sept. 30. "Carrying a child and bringing new life into the world marks the start of an incredible journey," Kunis says in a »
Now playing in theaters is John Wick. As I've said again and again...I loved this movie. In the film, Keanu Reeves stars as an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have crafted a fantastic action movie that’s absolutely worth your time and money. While you might not know their names, you’ve definitely seen their awesome work in films like Speed Racer, The Bourne Legacy, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and tons of others. On some of what I just mentioned they did the stunts, and on some they directed second unit (which means they directed a lot of the action). In addition to the films I just mentioned, they run 87eleven, which is the premiere action design team in Hollywood. When an actor needs to be trained for an action role, »

In Gina Prince-Bythewood's latest, "Beyond The Lights," Gugu Mbatha-Raw stars as Noni Jean, a rising pop star struggling with the demands of show business and fame. When she falls for a police officer primed for a career in politics (Nate Parker), both their families object. Mbatha-Raw, who will next be seen in the Wachowskis' "Jupiter Ascending" and Will Smith's upcoming NFL concussion drama, was just nominated for a Gotham Award for her performance in the contemporary love story. She made time to talk to Shadow And Act about the process of becoming Noni Jean. Preparing for the role I met Gina for the project almost two years before we »

He’s been skewed by arrows in Middle Earth, beheaded in Westeros and drawn and quartered in medieval England, but do you know where Sean Bean hasn’t met a sticky end yet? That’s right – space. Alas, even the final frontier may end up as a resting place for the oft-killed actor now that he’s joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s The Martian.
Bean will reportedly play a Nasa flight director in the survival adventure, which was adapted from Andy Weir’s book of the same name by The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard. Though some of you may be wondering just how Bean’s character will wind up perishing given that he’s safely back on Earth, rest assured the actor will find a way. After all, he has a reputation to protect.
All jesting aside, word has it that, in a refreshing change of pace, »

We have some casting news for you today. First up, Sean Bean has signed on to Ridley Scott's The Martian. Scripted by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) based on an e-book by Andy Weir, Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars and must figure out how to survive long enough for Nasa to rescue him. According to THR, Bean will play a Nasa flight director. It seems like a safe job, but I'm sure Bean's character will find some way to die. He'll probably choke on a donut or something. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena and Kristen Wiig. The Martian opens November 25, 2015. Bean currently stars on the TNT series Legends and will next be seen in Jupiter Ascending and Pixels.

Sean Bean has just been cast in Ridley Scott’s latest film, The Martian. He joins an already awesome cast which includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, and Kristin Wiig. Based on an e-book by author Andy Weir, which was published in 2012 and then published in paperback this year, the film will follow the first man on Mars. Bean will play the Nasa flight director.
Of course, all us Bean fans are wondering how the man of many deaths will meet his maker. Research shows that Bean’s film’s box office correlates directly with whether or not he dies, and the more gruesome his death, the higher the box office (*statistics yet to be verified by anybody of any importance). So how will Bean die in this latest offering from the Prometheus and Blade Runner director?
Well, it sounds as though Bean will remain on Earth, »

The human movie spoiler returns. Sean Bean, next to be seen on the big screen in The Wachowskis' delayed Jupiter Ascending, has landed a role in Ridley Scott's upcoming adaptation of Andy Weir's book, The Martian.
Bean joins a cast that includes Matt Damon, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Chastain. And he'll be taking on the role of Nasa's flight director in the movie. Having read the book over the past week, unless there's a significant detour taking with the screenplay, this role is going to offer something radically different for Bean: survival chances.
The story of The Martian centres on astronaut Mark Watney, who finds himself stranded on Mars. He has finite resources. He's out of contact with Earth. And nobody is due to return to the planet for years. »

Et's Nancy O'Dell sat down with rising star Gugu Mbatha-Raw to get her take on the comparisons being made between her upcoming film Beyond the Lights and Whitney Houston's classic 1992 film The Bodyguard.
Pics: Remembering Whitney Houston
"I was quite young when [The Bodyguard] came out," said Gugu, 31, who would not have been old enough to see the R-rated film when it first came out. "What's great about Beyond the Lights is that even though it's set in the music industry it's very much of our time now."
In the film, Gugu plays a pop diva named Noni Jean, who struggles with the pressures of her newfound stardom. The story draws parallels to today's stars.
"We took a lot of inspiration from [Rihanna] and many other artists actually," said Gugu.

"Your parents never told you the truth. The year of your birth, there was a prophecy that our leader would be born to liberate us. That leader is you." Yes, that's basically a line from the recent "Jupiter Ascending" trailer, but no, this exact quote comes from "Exodus: Gods and Kings," the latest Biblical epic attempting to shatter the Christmastime box office. From "Gladiator" and "The Counselor" director Ridley Scott, "Exodus" retells the classic Moses legend with ex-Batman Christian Bale as the chosen one and Joel Edgerton as Ramesses, wearing more eye-liner than Jack Nicholson's Joker. This is The Good Book as The Comic Book. There's already controversy surrounding Scott's decision to whitewash cast — a fair and necessary conversation that could pick up steam closer to its release — but as far as white-casts-playing-Middle-Eastern-characters are concerned, "Exodus: Gods and Kings" has a mighty ensemble to amplify its CG spectacle. »
