Get it, girl! Mila Kunis gave birth to her baby girl, Wyatt, almost 11 months ago. And while we've seen the Jupiter Ascending actress slip her slim post-baby body into her extensive skinny jeans collection since then, she went one step further in Glendale, Calif., on Wednesday, Aug. 19, when she worked a crop top. Mrs. Ashton Kutcher, 32, arrived at ABC Studios wearing a cropped, short-sleeved button-up, revealing her flat tummy. She completed the ensemble with a pair of her beloved skinny jeans (these pants black [...] »
A lot of noise has been made this year over how fans of Science Fiction should go see some of the larger studio-produced Sci-Fi flicks like Jupiter Ascending and Chappie if they want to see more "original" science fiction films in theaters in the future. The idea was that it didn’t matter if Jupiter Ascending and Chappie were quite disappointing efforts, and they were, they deserved your money if you ever wanted more films like them. It’s an argument equivalent to a hostage situation, and it was ridiculous. You shouldn’t support bad films in the hopes that the studio will throw some good ones your way down the road. Instead, you should pay to see excellent movies like Alex Garland’s Ex Machina, because doing so will be rewarding for you - and it will be. Plus, you get to see one of the more beautifully filmed »

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' box office: Bigger domestic flop than expected? Before I address the box office debacle of Warner Bros.' The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I'd like remark upon the fact that 2015 has been a notable year at the North American box office. That's when the dinosaurs of Jurassic World smashed Hulk and his fellow Halloween-costumed Marvel superheroes of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And smashed them good: $636.73 million vs. $457.52 million. (See also: 'Jurassic World' beating 'The Avengers' worldwide and domestically?) At least in part for sentimental (or just downright morbid) reasons – Paul Walker's death in a car accident in late 2013 – Furious 7 has become by far the highest-grossing The Fast and the Furious movie in the U.S. and Canada: $351.03 million.

“Star Wars: Rogue One” released the first image of the full cast at Disney’s D23 Expo, confirming the stars as Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed.
“Rogue One” has begun principal photography with “Godzilla’s” Gareth Edwards directing. The standalone film tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy.
“‘Rogue One’ takes place before the events of ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the ‘Star Wars’ universe,” said Kennedy in a statement. “It goes into new territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective while maintaining that essential ‘Star Wars’ feel that fans have come to know. Gareth is such an innovative director, »

What's the only thing worse than a sequel? The only prospect worse than paying £10 at your local cinema to have your favourite movie ruined, forever. The answer has three words. Straight-to-video.
In the '90s, home release sequels became fairly common. You'd greet them with surprise at your local Blockbusters and then want to pull your eyeballs out when you took them home and watched them. They're probably called straight-to-dvd or straight-to-Blu-ray now, but they still exist.
With the announcement that Dolph Lundgren will be starring in Kindergarten Cop 2 (because of course), here are 21 absolute stinking sequels - the vast majority of which weren't even considered good enough for the cinema. How many of them have you watched?
2. American Pie Presents: Beta House
Maybe it's the Eugene Levy factor - just why did he keep starring in all the sequels?! - but we have weird »
The film, with Kate Winslet as the villain, grossed than $130 million in U.S. theaters, just slightly less than the $150.9 million that the original film in the series took in last year. By theatrical standards, that’s a good showing. It was released two weeks before its Aug. 4 disc debut on Digital HD, the industry term for “electronic sellthrough,” or Est.
“Insurgent” bumped the prior week’s top seller, DreamWorks Animation’s “Home,” to the No. 2 spot, also on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Eddie Redmayne had a lot to learn before taking on his next role—playing transgender painter Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. The Oscar winner first discussed the job with Lana Wachowski, the transgender co-director of his sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending. He then met with trans activists and April Ashley, an 80-year-old transgender woman who once modeled for Vogue. "The first thing Eddie said to me was, 'Oh, April, before I can say anything to you, my father sends his love and tells me to say thank you for all the lovely dances you used to have together at [the 1960s London nightclub] Tramp,'" Ashley says in the new issue of Out magazine. "I was terribly amused." The Danish Girl, »
The Academy Award winner is chronicling the history of the Lgbt movement in playing one of the first gender re-assignment surgery recipients Lili Elbe in the upcoming drama The Danish Girl.
In an interview with Out, Redmayne acknowledged that he learned so much about the transgender community through playing Lili Elbe.
"It's a civil rights moment," he said. "My greatest ignorance when I started was that gender and sexuality were related.
"And that's one of the key things I want to hammer home to the world: You can be gay or straight, trans man or woman, and those two things are not necessarily aligned."
"People were so kind and generous with their experience, »
'Fantastic Four' 2015: Miles Teller as Reed Richards aka Mister Fantastic. Box office: 'Fantastic Four' 2015 bombs, 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' to pass $100 million mark Derided by critics and fans alike, 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four is about to become one of 2015's domestic box office bombs. After earning a paltry $11.3 million on Friday – including Thursday evening shows – the Josh Trank-directed, Fox-meddled (and -muddled?) Marvel superhero flick will likely gross less than even the most modest, downgraded expectations. In fact, don't be too surprised if the Christopher McQuarrie-Tom Cruise actioner Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation tops the North American box office chart this weekend (Aug. 7-9, '15). Fox's only hope is that Fantastic Four lives up to its name at the international box office – despite the fact that this latest superhero entry is in old-fashioned 2D, whereas audiences in several key overseas markets prefer their »

It's official! Sense8 has been renewed for Season 2 on Netflix. The cast of this sci-fi thriller jumped on Twitter this morning to make the announcement with a special 'birthday' video. The show comes from J. Michael Straczynski, working alongside the 'Wachowski Starship', other wise known as The Matrix trilogy creators Andy Wachowski and his brother-turned-sister Lana Wachowski.
The fate of the series was looking quite uncertain. Some fans had abandoned the series early, not finishing all of the episodes. But those who stuck through to the end were rewarded with one of the greatest modern sci-fi shows ever attempted. And that buzz slowly but surely brought back viewers who'd left, or those who simply weren't interested in it in the first place. Sense8 is considered a success for the 'Wachowski Starship'. They have had a string of commercial bombs at the box office over the past few years, including 2008's Speed Racer, »
It used to be that if you won a Best Actor or Actress trophy at the Academy Awards, you fell victim to the "Oscar Curse" and made a horrific film as a follow up to your golden spoils. Judging by the general outlook most viewers had shared about Jupiter Ascending, it looks like Eddie Redmayne got his cursed movie out of the way before making his award-winning performance in The Theory Of Everything. As production has wrapped on The Danish Girl, but not yet started on Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, the Academy Award winner looks like he's making sure to keep himself busy for the foreseeable future. The Tracking Board has announced that Redmayne is being sought after for New Line Cinema's L. Frank Baum biopic, Road To Oz. Written by Josh Golden, the film will detail "the early days of the author" behind the series »
Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne ("The Theory of Everything," "Jupiter Ascending") will portray "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" author L. Frank Baum in a new biopic of the prolific children’s fantasy writer at New Line Cinema reports The Tracking Board.
Josh Golden penned the script for "Road to Oz" which centers on Baum's early life and the development of his hit 1900 novel - a book partly inspired by his sickly niece Dorothy. Baum led a colorful life including marrying feminist and suffragist Maud Gage Baum, along with working as a newspaper editor, store owner, poultry breeder and some forays on the stage.
Golden's screenplay has made numerous honors lists for spec scripts and was instrumental in his nomination for a prestigious Nicholl Fellowship from AMPAS. What tone the project will go for, or who will helm it, is unknown at this point. It follows in the wake of several Oscar-bait style »

The film, which features the voices of “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons and singer Rihanna, earned $176.8 million in U.S. theaters and is based on the children’s book about a girl and a cuddly alien who team up to escape an invasion.
The film debuted at No. 1 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray sales chart.
“Home” outsold the No. 2 title on the overall disc sales chart, 20th Century Fox’s “The Longest Ride,” by a 12-to-1 margin. “Longest Ride,” a romantic drama with $37.5 million in theatrical earnings, spent the previous two weeks in the top spot.
Warner’s direct-to-video animated superhero movie “Justice League: Gods and Monsters” debuted at No. »

A couple of months ago on the Sound On Sight gaming podcast, Open Source, myself and Mike, one of the co-editors of the gaming section, entered into a bet. “I’ll be playing Final Fantasy Xv in 2015″, he said. Once I’d stopped laughing, the battle lines were drawn. “If Final Fantasy Xv is released in 2015, I’ll eat my shoe”, I said, and the wager was made official. If Final Fantasy Xv is released this year, I eat my shoe. If it’s released after December 31st 2015, Mike eats his. Almost instantly I felt bad. So safe seemed this bet for me, that in good conscience it wasn’t even fair to take it on. Both E3 and a brand new trailer for the game at Gamescom have been and gone since we made the wager, and we still don’t have a release date for Final Fantasy Xv yet. »

In a key leadership transition, Warner Bros. worldwide marketing and international distribution chief Sue Kroll is expanding her duties, as domestic distribution head Dan Fellman prepares to step down after nearly four decades at the Burbank studio.
Kroll will become president of worldwide distribution, adding North America to her portfolio. As part of the management shift, international distribution chief Veronika Kwan Vandenberg will take over Fellman’s day-to-day responsibilities, continuing to report to Kroll. Her title will be president of worldwide distribution.
Fellman, who will stay on until the end of the year and then consult for the studio and other clients, is widely respected both within the creative and exhibition communities, and is considered an effective broker in the disagreements that periodically flare-up between studios and theater owners over movie terms. He has been with the studio since 1978, overseeing the successful releases of such hits as “The Dark Knight” trilogy, »
