9 October 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Anne Hathaway and Jaime King both decided to show off their edgy sides with this black Versace gown featuring a gigantic zippered slit—but who is edgier? The Heart of Dixie star goes for a standard top knot and accessorizes with dangling earrings and a simple clutch for a classic look that works, and we're just about to hand it to her when something happens. The Les Misérables actress completely catches us off-guard with her own fierce take on the style, flaunting her curves and pairing the dress with those stunning gladiator-inspired sandals!

Anne Hathaway addresses all the 'Hathahate'

Though the beginning of 2013 was marked by myriad triumph for Anne Hathaway as awards were being heaped upon her for her performance in Les Misérables, it's also when Hathahate was at its most fervent.  In a new interview with Harper's Bazaar, Hathaway told her side of the story, remembering her reaction when she came across an article that asked why everyone hates her.  "I was in crisis," she said. "Now I'd be fine. I really would be. I'd let it roll off my back, but at the time I was still partly Fantine. I was still identifying with being a victim. »

Watch The New Trailer For The Theory Of Everything

1 October 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Focus Features has released the new trailer for their upcoming film, The Theory Of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.

Premiering at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in September, Catherine Shoard (The Guardian) says in her review, “Felicity Jones makes for a formidable opposite number; she’s a consistently brilliant actor who needs a breakthrough. Though Redmayne will deservedly hoover up a great swagbag of awards, Jones shouldn’t go home empty-handed. One beautifully underplayed scene between the two near the end hits with such choking force the viewer is left almost giddy.”

The Theory Of Everything is the extraordinary and uplifting story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, and of two people defying the steepest of odds through love. The film, based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, is directed by Academy Award »

Alison Owen, Debra Hayward Launch Monumental Pictures To Produce Films & TV

24 September 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Prolific UK-based producers Alison Owen and Debra Hayward have joined forces to launch Monumental Pictures. The new production outfit will focus on both film and TV content with the aim to “keep the costs small, but the vision big,” says Saving Mr Banks producer Owen. Long-time friends and colleagues, the pair last shared a credit on 1998’s Oscar-winning Elizabeth, but Owen says they’ve been chasing the same material for so long, “we’re both exhausted from competing with each other. Ultimately, I could see the only way to beat Debra was to join her.”

She also exec produced current release The Giver. Previous titles she’s produced include Jane Eyre, The Other Boleyn Girl and multiple Emmy-winner Temple Grandin. She »

Contender Countdown: So long, farewell...already?

18 September 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Oscar race has barely started, but there is already a laundry list of once-expected contenders that will not get released in 2014 and will try to be in the game next year. The most prominent title on that list so far is "99 Homes," which, following a Venice debut, was seen as a potential Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor player for stars Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon, respectively. The film was hoping screenings at Telluride and Toronto would foster its standing with distributors aiming for a legit Oscar qualifying run, but it became the odd man out. Instead, "Still Alice" and "Top Five" turned out to be the surprise pickups at Toronto for year end release and "99 Homes" found its best hope in the hands of indie upstart Broad Green Pictures. The story isn't over for Ramin Bahrani's film to say the least, but it's not where anyone thought »

Contender Countdown: 'Imitation Game' gets the early love for best picture

11 September 2014 9:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto — If it's September, not only is it fall film festival time, but it's also time for the return of the Contender Countdown. Yes, your weekly snapshot of the Best Picture race is back and who knew 2014 might actually deliver another real race? By this point last season, the showdown between "12 Years a Slave" and "Gravity" was well under way. There were some films on the horizon that had a chance at joining the fray, but it never really came to pass. The 2015 season is markedly different. Venice, Telluride and Toronto have ended with only two major contenders having been vetted by pundits and audiences alike, "The Imitation Game" and "Birdman." Neither is the frontrunner yet, although the former may jump into the lead fairly quickly. Toronto's major honor, the People's Choice Award, will be announced on Sunday. Over the past six years three winners went on to win the Best Picture Oscar ("Slumdog Millionaire, »

The Best Things About Eddie Redmayne's Performance as Stephen Hawking

10 September 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Theory of Everything had people buzzing at the Toronto International Film Festival (and was one of our favorite movies), and most of the praise has been directed at star Eddie Redmayne's performance. Redmayne's roles in Les Misérables and My Week With Marilyn got the up-and-coming star some attention, but his leading role as Stephen Hawking is the one that's going to put him on the map. With critics already predicting a best actor nomination for Redmayne, we're breaking down why this performance is so excellent - and award-worthy. His Physical Transformation Real-life astrophysicist Hawking was diagnosed with motor neuron disease at 21 and only given two years to live. Of course, Hawking defied that life expectancy and is 72 today. Redmayne portrays Stephen from the time he was an able-bodied college student to Hawking's state now, in a wheelchair, unable to speak, and with little muscle control. In the film, »

Tiff: Eddie Redmayne and capturing the smiling eyes of Stephen Hawking

10 September 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

How does one find the right actor to play Stephen Hawking?

Typically, directors and producers do their homework by reviewing an actor’s previous work, looking for clues in the on-screen moments to inspire confidence that a performer has the goods to breathe life into their character. Actor X can do this because he already did that. But unless Daniel Day-Lewis is in the mix, there really is no film resume that suggests an actor can convincingly portray Hawking, the brilliant British scientist whose body is ravaged by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als or Lou Gehrig’s disease), the motor-neurone disease »

Eddie Redmayne: 'Playing Stephen Hawking filled me with fear'

8 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Eddie Redmayne has admitted that he was apprehensive about taking on the role of Stephen Hawking.

The Les Misérables star plays the famous physicist in Theory of Everything, and described Hawking's story as "extraordinary".

Redmayne said BBC News: "To tell a story as extraordinary as this and depict someone as charismatic, brilliant and funny as Stephen was totally the dream.

"But with it came high stakes so it was a mixture of a dream and utter fear."

Director James Marsh also revealed that Hawking has seen the film and even lent his voice to the project, which meant the similar-sounding computerised voice created by the production team didn't need to be used.

He explained: "I think he was surprised it wasn't terrible.

"He saw the film when it was almost finished and one of the first things he said was he wanted to give us his real voice. »
