Writer/director Stuart Beattie's adaptation of Kevin Grievous' popular graphic novel 'I, Frankenstein' has been victim recently of the dreaded date bumping and has ended up with a January 2014 release. However, optimists out there will simply see the extended wait as a longer period of time to receive assets and marketing materials galore. Which begins today with a look at a new motion poster from the project featuring star Aaron Eckhart ('The Dark Knight'). Bill Nighy ('Shaun of the Dead'), Aden Young, Socratis Otto ('Gone'), Miranda Otto ('Locke and Key') and Yvonne Strahovski ('Dexter') also star. Feast on the new moving material, courtesy of IGN, below. »
Even though originally a couple of months back we should have been feasting on Stuart Beattie's 'I, Frankenstein' the feature adaptation of the cult Kevin Grievoux graphic novel has now been bumped back all the way to January 2014. After it was dropped from its February 2013 release it was rescheduled to show up this September but now all thanks to its slow moving 3D post-conversion the Lionsgate production will have to wait to the theatrical equivalent of a Floridian retirement complex, where genre movies go to die. Aaron Eckhart ('The Dark Knight'), Bill Nighy ('Shaun of the Dead'), Aden Young, Socratis Otto ('Gone'), Miranda Otto ('Locke and Key') and gorgeous 'Dexter' star Yvonne Strahovski (below) all star. »
Anyone familiar with Ian McShane’s Golden Globe winning role as the profanity-spewing, hard drinking Al Swearengen on HBO’s "Deadwood" shouldn't be remotely surprised that intense, gritty characters have been Ian McShane’s bread and butter for quite some time. Surely his knack for bringing swarthy, murderous types to life has aided him in being cast as the embittered dwarf king Beith in "Snow White and the Huntsman" and his latest curmudgeonly role as King Brahmwell in "Jack the Giant Slayer."
However, a careful look at McShane's decades-long career reveals a few nuggets of evidence that it isn't quite all malevolence and danger behind those beady eyes. Could it be possible that all of these latter-day seething character roles are actually hiding the longing, romantic heart of a true ladies' man?
Perhaps the answer lies not in the man’s movies, but in his music. Make no mistake, the »

It's time to face reality: It's Nicholas Sparks' world. We just live in it.
Really, the prolific romance author plays us like goddamn puppets. The author has seen eight of his novels adapted for the screen, to stunningly successful results. "The Notebook" makes our romantic lives pale in comparison, and the devotion between Mandy Moore and Shane West in "A Walk to Remember" is swoon-worthy. Let's not even get started on "Dear John" — it's enough to make a girl want to invest in personalized stationery.
Since there's not even a point to these movies other than romance, let's get to business: Which of these gentlemanly characters would we most like to take home to our dewy-eyed mothers, which would we hit and quit, and which would we just, well...hit? Yes, it's time for Eff, Marry, Kill: Nicholas Sparks Edition.

Amanda Seyfried is trying to turn her career around by taking on some interesting roles. She was never a bad actress, but with films like Gone, Red Riding Hood and Jennifer’s Body on her resume, she hasn’t exactly been making wise choices. Recently though, she’s been trying to change that. A few months ago she appeared in the excellent Les Miserables and in the near future, she’ll be starring in the biopic Lovelace, playing porn star Linda Lovelace. The interesting career choices don’t stop there though as today, Seyfried has signed on to star in A Million Ways To Die In The West.
The upcoming comedy-western from director Seth MacFarlane is being described as a Blazing Saddles-style film that is set in the 1800s and follows a “mild-mannered farmer (MacFarlane) whose girlfriend (Seyfried) leaves him when he backs out of a gunfight. He crosses »

You’ve seen the posters. You’ve seen the ads. And now the wait is over: Smash Season 2 kicks off tonight with a two-hour premiere.
But has the Broadway-based series righted the wrongs of its first season? Will it no longer let its audience down? Below, we offer up six reasons why the show deserves a second chance...
Not One, But Two Musicals: The new season starts with lackluster reviews for the Marilyn Monroe musical Bombshell. So as the creative team scrambles, another show, Hit List, will emerge and steal the former's spotlight.
"We have two musicals that you're seeing in several states of development,” said new showrunner Joshua Safran, adding that a pair of productions will help the series “peel back the curtain on this world that most people haven't seen and show that process.”
Out With The Old, In With The New: Gone are lackluster characters like Dev, »

previously on SAG Red Carpet, Kurt and I discussed the huggability of Sally Field and which Best Actress we preferred. Now we're on to other more varied cloth.
Nathaniel:We move on now to Screen Actor Beauty Guild members who were not nominated -- I amend! Not nominated in categories I tend to obsess over. That's an important distinction. To some degree I find myself surprised with TV awards. It's not that I don't know who is nominated, just that I don't commit it to memory and on awards night I'm like "ohmygod Michelle Dockery!". I love so much as "Lady Mary" on Downton Abbey and I'm happy she emerged a winner (for Ensemble) but this dress was already a big win, modern and sexy enough to pull her away from that massive PBS estate in casting director's imaginations I hope. And speaking of winners, I'm as happy as anyone that »

The book-to-film adaptation rights of Gayle Forman's If I Stay have belonged to Summit Entertainment (now Lionsgate) for years upon years, but the project has seen various actors and filmmakers come and go as it sometimes happens in Tinseltown. As Forman herself once observed, "the road from having a movie optioned to having it made is a potentially long and winding one." In the case of her story, it certainly has been. She's even since released the sequel, Where She Went. According to Variety, If I Stay is still being pieced together now and has a new leading lady on board - Chloe Moretz - as well as a new director - R.J. Cutler. Previously, Dakota Fanning was attached to star as Mia, a musician who endures a horrific family tragedy and must decide whether to fight for her own life, and Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was in to helm it. »
The beautiful star looked incredibly glam in luscious waves for her ‘Lovelace’ premiere at Eccles Center Theatre during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival on January 22, 2013 in Park City, Utah–here’s how you can copy her style.
We have major hair envy! Amanda Seyfried, 26, has one of the most beautiful manes in Hollywood and she knows how to maximize it to its fullest potential. The star wore her locks long in flowing waves that were seriously amazing.

The 3/4-inch tourmaline ceramic deep waver uses tourmaline technology to create frizz-free shiny waves. Ceramic technology provides high, even heat that penetrates hair from the inside-out, helping hair retain natural moisture for zero frizz.

When Smash Season 2 premieres on February 5, viewers will see new faces, a new Broadway production and nary a scary around Julia's neck.
These were just a few of the changes teased yesterday by new showrunner Josh Safran at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
Attempting to satiate fans from last year, while also bringing in those who quit on the critically-lambasted series, Safran explained to reporters in attendance:
"I don't think it's changed that much. Stuff from last year that you loved is still there, and maybe stuff people thought went off on tangents we've looked at [and] sort of tried to find a way to put back together.
"But it still is the same Smash, maybe bigger, [with] more music [and] a little bit younger in regards to some of our new cast members."
