Thus far in his career, Rupert Wyatt has made a firm decision not to repeat himself. From his prison pic “The Escapist,” he leaped to the blockbuster “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes,” which launched a new franchise. From there he pivoted to the drama “The Gambler,” and now he’s going sci-fi with “Captive State.”

The couple was all smiles and holding hands after a lunch date at The Sea Grill in New York City on Monday.
Lopez, 47, was the epitome of spring chic in a pastel blue Roland Mouret dress and color-coordinated coat with Casadei heels and Valentino purse. While Rodriguez, 41, looked dapper in a grey suit and pink dress shirt.
Perhaps the songstress was enjoying a cobb salad during her latest lunch; after all, that’s the dish she was eating when she first met her boyfriend outside a Los Angeles restaurant. »

Jennifer Lopez may be one of the biggest stars in the world, but her children, 9-year-old twins Max and Emme, certainly know how to steal the spotlight.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Monday, the host asked if Lopez’s kids could join them onstage — although they were a little shy. Max immediately ducked behind a chair, while Emme took a seat on mom’s lap.
DeGeneres pointed out that Emme’s sparkly animal print dress matched her mom’s outfit.
“Me and Emme got dressed alike today” the 47-year-old Shades of Blue star said. “She’s my mini-me. »

The songstress, 47, paired her billowy olive number — the pant legs giving serious Princess Jasmine vibes — with a berry pout and enormous hoop earrings. For his part, Rodriguez, 41, wore a navy suit over a checked shirt.
J-Rod has been inseparable, between dinner dates and spending the Easter holiday together in the Dominican Republic. After hitting the stage with her ex Marc Anthony at the Los Altos de Chavón theater, the songstress hosted a treat-filled Easter brunch with her new boyfriend and their children. »

It’s a little bit of an understatement to say that filmmaker Ben Wheatley has not made mainstream movies so far. His films are niche items, albeit sometimes incredibly compelling ones. This week, he makes what might be his most mainstream flick possibly, an action comedy of sorts in Free Fire. Although still decidedly independent, this is like the Mexican standoff sequence in Reservoir Dogs, but if that was an entire 90 minute movie. It’s a riot of a film. A literal blast, if you will. Helping to lead the charge is Brie Larson, who seems incapable of not turning in very solid work when the camera starts rolling. She’s just dynamite. The movie centers around an arms deal gone bad. Taking place in Boston in 1978, two gangs meet in an abandoned warehouse, ostensibly to buy/sell some guns. Set in motion by middle man Ord (Armie Hammer) one »

The hot couple dined on steaks at Prime 112 in Miami Beach on Tuesday night, a source tells People.
“They dined in the wine room behind the curtains,” the insider said. “Onlookers couldn’t see much, but they left holding hands.”

But the trip isn't all about J.Lo's romance with her new man. Jenny from the Block is actually in the Caribbean country for her highly publicized concert with ex-husband Marc Anthony, which also happened last night. Before she hit the floor with Rodriguez, Lopez and her former flame took the stage in a sold-out show at Los Altos de Chavon theater in La Romana on Saturday night. The concert marked the »

Here’s Wolves in a nutshell: It’s The Gambler (either the James Toback-scripted original with James Caan or the remake with Mark Wahlberg) rewritten as a rote indie drama about high school sports, minus whatever gutsiness or humanity it takes to ask the audience to sympathize with an addict. The title refers to the team nickname of a Manhattan prep school, whose star basketball player, Anthony Keller (Taylor John Smith), has to suffer for the misdeeds of his dad, Lee (Michael Shannon), an English professor and failed novelist with a serious betting problem that has left him deep in debt to a variety of bullnecked or hatchet-faced crooks. Shannon plays Lee with a pinched voice and a poof of uncombed hair, and it’s a joy to watch this great actor force the breath of life into a character so bogus that half of his purpose in the »

Carmine Caridi, an actor best known for small parts in the last two films in The Godfather trilogy, opened up about why the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expelled him over movie screeners in 2004.
Caridi, 83, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter in an article published on Tuesday, about getting caught lending movie screeners sent by distributors to Academy voters for Oscar consideration.
“Let me tell you something,” Caridi says. “Everybody does it, Ok? I was doing a guy a favor and he screwed me.”

Gambling Movies Provide People with the Impetus to Start Playing
Gambling is not a modern creation and definitely not an activity that will go away anytime soon. It can spice up the lives of those who play and if done right generate a side income or even make players rich. Obviously, such a glamorous subject couldn’t go unnoticed in Hollywood. Movie directors tend to focus on high-stakes gambling and pay less attention to regular players grinding their profits. The best films encourage people to start playing and in turn, players are more likely to start watching these movies.
Hollywood has portrayed gambling differently over the course of time, depending on whether the activity was legal or illegal. In the 60s and 70s, most of the characters were playing in underground locations, with shady people. They took many chances in addition to losing cash and quite often the games were »

One of the jobs that the general public doesn’t pay that much attention to — but probably should — is that of the cinematographer. If you think a film looks gorgeous and you’re able to get swept away by what you’re seeing on the screen, that’s all thanks to this man or woman’s work behind the scenes. Turns out, though, you can even see these folks showcase their talent on social media.
Since the role of cinematographer is often referred to as the director of photography — shortened to Dp or Dop — it only makes sense that we hone in Instagram as that’s one popular online platform dedicated specifically to photos. Let’s take a look at 16 of the cinematographers who are utilizing Instagram to showcase more of their work and giving us a glimpse of »

Hollywood’s movie industry tends to run at such a brisk clip that even a short hiatus can feel like a lifetime – just ask Rupert Wyatt. After executing his big break through 20th Century Fox’s franchise-starter Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Wyatt quietly took a step back from the blockbuster scene, favoring character-driven drama in the vein of The Gambler over high-octane action.
One dalliance in the realm of television later (see: The Exorcist) and the writer-director is now prepping his latest creative venture. It’s called Captive State, a futuristic sci-fi thriller set in the Windy City. Ashton Sanders and 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s John Goodman have already signed on, and Deadline now reports that Rupert Wyatt’s original pic has filled out its cast with Vera Farmiga, Jonathan Majors and rapper Colson Baker (Aka Machine Gun Kelly).
Filming is due to commence next month ahead of an expected release next year, »

An extraterrestrial force and an authoritarian society are just some of the juicy sci-fi tenets to be found in the official synopsis for Captive State, Rupert Wyatt’s original thriller currently brewing in development.
Starring Ashton Sanders and 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s John Goodman, the futuristic romp takes place in a nondescript Chicago neighborhood that’s become home to a foreign invader. Wyatt dreamed up the idea late last year, and Captive State heralds the director’s first foray behind the lens for a feature film since his so-so crime drama The Gambler. That doesn’t necessarily mean Wyatt has been idly twiddling his thumbs, given he helmed the pilot episode for Amazon’s redo of The Exorcist.
Now, he’s primed to venture back into the realm of sci-fi for his latest creative endeavor. A 2018 release date is the target, and the official synopsis reads as so: “Captive State is »
