Plot details for this Warcraft movie are still being kept a big secret, and we don't have have any casting or character breakdowns to go along with them. »

Writer/producer/actress: Brit Marling is the kind of triple threat we like. She’s carved out her niche in Hollywood with a Diy attitude. Why wait for someone else to give you opportunities when you can create them yourself? She co-wrote “Sound of My Voice” with indie director Zal Batmanglij and “Another Earth” with Mike Cahill, and both landed in the festival circuit in 2011 and instantly launched her career. Offers came pouring in, including working alongside Tom Cruise in the big-budgeted sci-film film, “Oblivion.” It would have been a justifiable role to take; indie actress makes good and takes a paycheck as a reward to keep herself going. Instead, she turned down the role and has only made smart supporting choices in its place, including writing and starring in 2013’s eco-terrorist thriller “The East” with Batmanglij once again. Marling has proven, if you’ve got the ideas and the gumption, »

With all of the higher-profile Oscar bait movies coming out this fall, a lot of critics have been neglecting to talk about Out of the Furnace, an upcoming thriller which stars Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck. The film has flown somewhat under the radar in recent months, but now Relativity Media is turning the heat up on its marketing campaign with a new poster and TV spot, both which you can check out below. The trailer highlights Out of the Furnace‘s incredibly strong cast, particularly Harrelson as a vicious crime boss:
In the film, Harrelson plays a nasty East Coast kingpin by the name of Curtis DeGroat. When tormented war veteran Rodney Baze (Affleck) returns to his impoverished Rust Belt hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Rodney is quickly drawn into DeGroat’s shady bare-knuckle boxing operation. When he disappears without a trace, Rodney’s brother Russell (Bale), an »

Comedy: 'Miss Congeniality' (2000)
America has been wowed by Sandra Bullock's death-defying role in "Gravity," so what better time for a good ol' Sandie throwback? Messy FBI agent Gracie Hart hasn't been on a date (or brushed her hair) in years, and she's one of the funniest female characters in recent comedy history. From watching her learn how »

Right now Ellen Page can be seen in video game form in the title Beyond: Two Souls, but the Juno, X-Men: The Last Stand and The East star will enter another sci-fi realm on film. Das Films has announced that Page will produce and star in Into the Forest, an adaptation of Jean Hegland's novel of the same name. In addition, Evan Rachel Wood will also star in the film set in the near-future, following two teenage sisters (Page and Wood) living alone in their Northern California forest home. The book is described as a tale of "hope and despair set in a frighteningly plausible near-future America." More below! The official synopsis is as follows: "Over 30 miles from the nearest town, and several miles away from their nearest neighbor, Nell and Eva struggle to survive as society begins to decay and collapse around them. No single event precedes society's fall. »

After Charlie Hunnam dropped out of playing Christian Grey in Universal's Fifty Shades of Grey earlier this month, the role has quickly become one of the hottest parts in town. Today, we have word that actor Billy Magnussen tested on Friday, along with Jamie Dornan (The Fall).
Both actors read with director Sam Taylor-Johnson and star Dakota Johnson, who is playing Anastasia Steele. Jamie Dornan was mentioned as a contender last week, along with True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård. We also reported last week that François Arnaud (The Borgias) was in contention as well. Scott Eastwood (Fury, Texas Chainsaw 3D) has also tried out for the coveted part.
Sam Taylor-Johnson is directing from an adapted screenplay by Kelly Marcel, which is being polished by Patrick Marber. We reported last month that production is scheduled to begin in Vancouver next month, although it isn't known if shooting will be »
Just because a bunch of actors and director Rob Marshall have gone into the woods for, er, Into The Woods, that doesn’t stop someone from trying to make a movie called Into The Forest. It’s not a musical but a dystopian future tale, and it’ll star Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood.Patricia Rozema is directing the adaptation of Jean Heglund’s novel, which will find Page and Wood as sisters struggling to survive when society collapses in a near-future scenario. To escape the day-to-day horrors of their Northern California city, the escape into the local woods. Sorry, forest.Page is aboard to produce the film, which doesn’t have a set start date yet. She was seen this year in The East and will show up in 2014 as part of the sprawling ensemble in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Wood has Charlie Countryman and rom-com A Case Of You »
Ellen Page is set to produce and star opposite Evan Rachel Wood in a film adaptation of Jean Hegland's novel "Into the Forest." Fellow-Canadian Patricia Rozema ("Grey Gardens," "Mansfield Park") is helming from her adapted screenplay. "Into the Forest" centers on two sisters struggling to survive following the collapse of society in the not-too-distant future. Page, who tweets at @EllenPage, recently starred in Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's "The East" as an eco-terrorist; she has "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in the pipeline, as well as being attached to Fox's "Queen and Country," adapted from the Greg Rucka comic book series. Wood has "Charlie Countryman" coming up (trailer here), where she stars opposite Shia Labeouf in a Euro-set thriller. »

Earlier this year, we reported that Ellen Page was attached to the small-scale post-apocalyptic tale, Into the Forest. Patricia Rozema's adaptation is based on Jean Hegland's novel, which is about two teenage sisters who live alone in a remote part of the Northern California forest, miles away from any neighbor, when society unexpectedly collapses. There is talk of a war overseas and upheaval in Congress, but it still comes as a shock when the electricity runs out and gas is nowhere to be found. The sisters are left to hope the power eventually returns as their supplies dwindle. A press release now confirms that Page will star as well as produce, and Evan Rachel Wood will play her sister. The brief synopsis in the press release doesn't mention them being teenagers, but the 26-year-old actresses look just young enough to pull it off if the movie sticks to that aspect of the book. »

The box sets of three American TV dramas are great for those of us who crave bawdy fun, while Blinkbox threatens to upstage Netflix
I've never cared for the term "guilty pleasure", which ascribes an odd moral burden to honest fun, but it's how most would describe three gleefully salacious Us television dramas, all with new box sets out tomorrow, and all ones I've devoured while sensing that I'm supposed to be cracking on with Breaking Bad.
Revenge (Disney, 15) may be the least fashionable good series on TV right now. Pacing primly at the corner of Dynasty and Desperate Housewives, it's a knowingly ludicrous Hamptons-set mystery swaddled in bales of white linen – all the better to show up the blood. The second season finds knife-lipped Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) continuing in her quest to bring down the billionaire family that in turn brought down her late father. (For baffled newcomers, »

World War Z became (arguably) the first-ever zombie blockbuster when it hit cinemas earlier this year. With a budget of more than $190m, Brad Pitt as the lead and great source material in the form of Max Brooks's globetrotting "mockument" novel, this looked like something very special indeed. But being a blockbuster meant that compromises had to be made. Barely anything of the source material remained and, rather than creating something unique, Hollywood resorted to playing down the zombie aspect; instead splicing together two genres it already knows: the contagion thriller and the disaster movie. However, just because the film fails to deliver on its zombie potential doesn't mean it's a complete dud. There are plenty of tense near-misses as Un investigator Pitt »

Brit Marling is a unique character in modern cinema. She is ethereally beautiful, yet far more than just a pretty face; she has not only starred in unusual independent films such as Another Earth and Sound of My Voice (both released in 2011), but also co-written those films’ screenplays. In a world where substantial and complex roles for women on the big screen can be thin on the ground, and where a pretty young woman can be repeatedly typecast as the girlfriend or the victim (or both simultaneously), Marling writes the roles she would like to play, ensuring that she gets a chance to let her talents shine. The latest of these roles is that of undercover intelligence agent Sarah Moss in The East.

Seemingly a perfect union, the writing duo of director Zal Batmanglij and his hypnotic on screen muse, Brit Marling, return to the big screen with their second collaboration, The East, an excellent Sundance preemed, political thriller that riles with the ideologies of environmental extremism while building upon the cultist culture that they explored in their mercurial debut, Sound of My Voice. This time bearing the budget of a modest Hollywood production, a cast that boasts names like Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page and a release that surprisingly didn’t go bigger, their sophomore feature feels like the work of a major studio, a slick, highly commercial production that surprisingly refuses to compromise its morals. Taking us headlong into the controversial underworld of so called ‘eco-terrorists’ through an undercover agent who’s allegiance becomes blurred, The East sees Batmanglij making the leap from indie darling to major league filmmaker without sacrificing auteuristic assurance. »
